 ���^M  DAILY EDITION   BY MAIL  FIVE  DOLLARS A YEAR  tribune  weekl^dition BY MA(L  TWO DOLLARS A YEAR  EIGHTH YEAB.  NELSON:  WEDNESDAY M0BN1NG SEPTEMBER 12  1900  PRICE FIVE CENTS  so  con-  RELIEF WORK AT GALVESTON  Soldiers Patrol the Streets.  Galveston, September 11.���The  White Cotton Screw Men's Organisation held a meeting last night  and tendered their services, that of  500 able bodied men, to the public  to clear the streets of debris. Big  forces were at work last night, and  the situation is much improved  far as the passage of vessels i.s  cerned.  The city was patrolled last night  by regular soldiers. No one was  allowed on the streets without a  pass. Several negroes were shot  for not halting wheu ordered. It  is reported that three of the citizen  soldiery were shot by negroes.  The steamer Lawrence arrived  here this morning from Houston  with water and provisions. A committee of 100 citizens were aboard.  W. G. Van Vlack, general manager  of the Southern Pacific, arrived  here this moruiug. He thought it  would be possible to establish mail  service from Houston to Texas City  tonight with transfer boats to Galveston.  The dead-bodies have decomposed  so much that it is impossible to  send them to sea for burial. The  water has receded so far, however,  that it is possible to dig trenches,  and bodies are being buried where  found. Bodies are also being  burned where it can be done.  Work on the waterworks is being  rushed, and it is hoped to be able to  turn a supply on this afternoon.  The relief committee met at 9  o'clock this morning. The city  needs feed for horses. ,It is also  badly in need of disinfectants. A  barge load of lime at this time  would be a blessing. Brasoria  county has offered armed men to  protect the city.  . Houston, September 11.���Latest  estimate . from . the Post correspondent, just back from Galyeston,  places the number of dead at 5000.  UNITED STATES WILL WAIT  j-  No Hurry to Negotiate.  Washington, D. C, September  11.���From the formal statement  give/v, out today it appears that the  state department is not yet ready  to begin direct negotiations with  Li Hung Chang. It does not question his credentials as a plenipotentiary, but simply leaves the matter  in abeyance. Probably this is because all the powers have not. yet  returned the responses to the Russian note, and it is desired to' avoid  making the United the first among  the powers to abandon the harmonious action, and strike for itself  toward the settlement directly with  China. Also it may be deemed well  to wait to hear from Mr. Conger,  who several day_s_ago__>\as__.invited-  to express his opinion about quitting Pekiu.  Minister Wnwas at the state department today. It was understood his first call was, in part,  least, to secure transportation for  Li Hung Chang from Shang-Hai to  Taku on a United States vessel.  His later call was to receive the answer of the department to the  application, as well as to the communications1 respecting Li Hung  Chang's functions. The answer returned by the state department to  the latter communication apparently made it unnecessary at this  time to pursue the inquiry as to  the ship. If Li may.not enter into  negotiations at present there is no  occasion to transport him to Pekin.  These Messengers Traveled.  New York, -September 11.���Henry Ownden and Ernest Morton, two  Canadian Pacific messenger boys  arrived in the city Monday evening  from Montreal. They made the  trip on their bicycles. According  to their story the bOys left Montreal  at 4 o'clock Saturday morning..  The boys passed through Pittsburg,  Whitehall, Saratoga and Albany,  and then followed the Hudson river  to this city, arriving at 6:30 o'clock  Monday evening. The boys were  on the road 62�� hours, including a  five hour rest at Blue Stores, New  York. They claim to have broken  the record.- ____  Arresting Naturalized Japs.  Vancouver, September 11.���  [Special to The Tribune.]���It looks  as if some steps were being taken  by the provincial government in  the matter of the fraudulent naturalization of Japanese. Several of  the Japs have. been arrested, upon  whom naturalization papers were  found which had been fraudulently  secured.  Chinese Patriotic Fund.  Vancouver, September 11.���  [Special to The Tribune.]���The  British Columbia Chinese today  cabled $20,000 to China to assist in  defraying the cost of raising a reform army for the purpose of protecting the Chinese emperor.  WOULD BE MORE EFFECTIVE  Than an Export Duty on Ore.  The following, scheme of taxing  the output of metalliferous mines  was laid before the Dunsmuir government at the last session of the  legislature, and had it been adopted  a step would have been taken in  the direction of protecting or encouraging home industries.   It may  be argued that four per cent is an  excessive rate;  but if such a tax  would result in  the treatment of  all our ores within the province,  surely no one could deny that the  people of the - proA'ince would be  greatly benefited.     The people of  Kootenay have .been clamoring for  years for ' an increase of duties on  lead and lead products, but their  demands have been unheeded by  the powers at Ottawa. They should  begin work nearer home.    -While  the attack on Ottawa should not be  abandoned, siege should Tie laid to  Victoria.     The Dunsmuir government can be captured by effective  work.    If two per cent is  not too  high a tax for the mine owner to  pay who treats, or has treated, his  ore within the province, then the  mine owner who prefers to ship his  ore to the United States for treatment should be made pay a little  extra for the privilege :  The Scheme.  There shall be assessed, levied and  collected quarterly from every person owning, managing, leasing or  working a mine, and paid to her  majesty, her heirs and successors,  four per cent on the assessed value  of all ore or mineral bearing substances, raised/ gotten or gained  and which have been sold or removed from. the premises of any  mine in the province, subject if the  output thereof be smelted, milled  or treated within the province, to  the following rebate or refund, to  be obtained upon a verified statement from the owner or manager  of the mine, certified by the assessor of the district, and forwarded  to the minister of mines.  (a.) On the gross value of the  output of any mine (mineral) so  dealt with as aforesaid, up to the  amount of the first five thousand  dollars thereof, the whole of said  tax:  (b.) On the gross value of the  output of any mine (placer or  _dredgin_g)_so_dealt_with as aforesaid,=  up to the amount of the first two  thousand five hundred dollars  thereof, the whole of said tax:  (c.) On the gross value of the  output of any mine (mineral) in excess of said five thousand dollars,  or (placer or dredging) in excess of  said two thousand five hundred  dollars, one half of said tax:  (d.) In this section the words  "smelted, milled or treated within  the province" shall not apply to  ores which may be concentrated  within the province if afterwards  exported for further treatment.  Will Care for the Eefugees.  Cape Town, September 11.���In  the Cape house of assembly today,  the premier, sir John Gordon  Sprigge, replying to a question concerning the fate of the refugees  who have not been permitted to  return to their occupations, said  that if charitable funds failed, the  government would see that the refugees did not starve.  London, -September 12.4-The  Cape Town correspondent of the  Daily Mail, referring to the question put to the house of assembly  regarding the refugees, says: "The  distress among them is very serious. Large numbers, mostly Americans, are living in caves on the sides  of Table mountain, owing to their  inability to pay rent.  Bubonic Plague in Glasgow.  Glasgow, Scotland, September  10.���An official bulletin, issued  today, shows that an additional  case of bubonic plague has been reported. There were today 10 cases  and 112 cases under observation.  KASLO MEN_ARE ARRESTED  Local Mining S _uabhle.  Kaslo, September 11.���[Special  to The Tribune.]���A sensation was  caused here this evening by the  arrest of James D. Carlyle, who  claims to be manager of the Lodestar Mining Company, and O. A.  Sutherland, secretary of the board  of trade, and holder of various  other offices. Both are among the  best known citizens, and their present position is due more to lack of  thought than anything else. They  are charged wifch unlawfully breaking into the office of the Lodestar  company and stealing therefrom a  ledger, cash book and journal.  S. S. Connauton was mauaging  director of the company. He went  to Vancouver last week and left  the affairs of the company in charge  of mayor McAnn.. Next day Carlyle  took possession of the steamer  Marion, belonging to the company.  When McAnn protested Carlyle  produced a cablegram from president Blythe, dated Liverpool, England, appointing him managing-  director, ' succeeding Connauton.  McAnn claims that the appointment  won't stand. Shortly before one  o'clock this morning the chief of  police found Carlyle and Sutherland in the "Lodestar company's  office. The arrests are the result  of the nocturnal visit. Had they  waited till daylight, and then after  due notice entered the premises it  is difficult to see what action could  have been taken.  Carlyle when interviewed declined  to make any statement, but appeared to think he had .taken the  only course open to him. He said  he notified several people, of his intention to enter the office. He has  consulted Wheller & Martin. The  preliminary hearing will probably  be held before police magistrate  Carney tomorrow.  The Lone Star Mining Company  owns claims up the Duncan river  aud up the south fork of Kaslo  river. It" is an English concern,  and ,Mr.- Blythe, the president of  the company is much interested in  establishing a smelter here. .The  present trouble arises out of disagreements between Carlyle and  Connauton. Carlyle is said to^be a  brother of the president, but dropped the name of Blythe on coming  west. The legal fight will all turn  on whether Carlyle was legally appointed manager or not.  dinner was givftti by Edwin  Dnranfc, on behali' of the British  American Corporation. Then the  workings of the Le Roi were visited, . where stopes of ore 105 feet  wide were shown them. In the  evening a grand banquet was tendered the governor-general at the  Kootenay House. There were 75  present and the affair, was a great  success. A number of interesting  speeches were made in responding  to the toasts. The party leaves for  Nelson tomorrow.  ANOTHER CABINET SHUFFLE  French Ministers to Resign.  Paris, September 11.���The Journal says, on the authority of a  deputy who recently discussed the  situation with several of the cabinet ministers, that a portion of  them are in favor of the cabinet resigning in a body before the assembling���of���parliament;���on-the-  ground that the government has  accomplished the task for which it  was constituted, that the Dreyfus  affair is ended, that the defence of  the republic has been placed on a  firm basis, that the exposition is  about to be closed, and that it  would be best to resign in order to  clear the political situation. The  cabinet resignation, it is ; further:  asserted, will do away with numerous interpellations on strikes, accidents at the exposition, and other  incidents which threaten to cause  stormy debates in the chamber, and  president Loubet could then form a  cabinet of Republican concentration, not including any of the present ministers. A decision, it is  believed will probably be taken at  an early meeting of the cabinet.  The Eossland Reception.  Rossland," September 11.���Lord  Minto and party had a very, pleasant time today. In the forenoon  they took carriages, accompanied  by the mayor and eity council and  the reception committee.^. The  party halted at the corner of Columbia avenue and Washington  street. Here the school children  were assembled and sang "God Save  the Queen" and the "Maple Leaf,"  and lord Minto made a neat speech.  He heartily thanked the mayor and  the citizens for the many courtesies  shown him and his party. Then a  drive was taken around the city.  After this the party proceeded to  the Centre Star mine, and visited  the 400 foot and other levels, and  were driven .over the surface of the  I War  Eagle.   In   the afternoon a  U. S. WILL AVOID A CLASH  In. the Chinese. Trouble.  Washington, September 10.���  The developments __". the day in the  Chinese situation,still point to a  speedy withdrawal of the United  States troops from China. General  Chaffee has added the weight of  his opinion to that already entertained by many officials here. It  probably is significant that the  general's statement on this point  was given publicity by the administration.  No confirmation is at hand here  to the report that'Great Britain  and Germany haye joined in. an  agreement'to "remain together in  Pekin, regardless" of the attitude of  the other, powers.'.- Should this  be true, the fact "would doubtless  hasten - the" -i rearward movement of the, "American troops,  for there is a firm determination to  avoid becoming involved in any  clash between the powers, such as  might reasonably' be expected to  follow the execution of this reported British-German programme.  If there has been further responses  to the -Russian note relative to  evacuating, their purport cannot be  ascertained./ -This delay no longer  interferes with the' execution of  the American policy.  The part of the problem relative  to the. withdrawal that remains unsolved is the best means of securing  guarantees for the attainment, of  the few objects set out in secretary  Hay's note of July 3r,d, which haye  not yet been secured.'-'Possibly  guarantees must be robtained from  two sides from , the Chinese  ���government as to the security  of American treaty rights,  and the creation of a claims commission which shall provide for the  payment of indemnity for the losses  suffered by American citizens and  for the expenditure on account of  the Pekin relief expedition. Then  it is entirely possible that it may  be regarded as necessary, if any of  the allies refuse to leave Pekin and  persist in a war of conquest, that  the interests of the United States in  the matter of trade of the "open  door" and of all rights now guaranteed to the United States in China by  treaty be made a matter of special  agreement between the United  States and these waring powers. It  does not follow that because the  "United-States troops are to be  withdrawn this autumn from China  that United States interests will be  left completely at the mercy of  other powers. On the contrary  such" disposition will be made of  these troops that they, with others  if necessary, can be returned to  China in short order. To this end  the entire army of general Chaffee  will be quartered in some of the  pleasantest and most salubrius portions of the Philippines. If they  are wanted again in China they can  be transported inside of a week,  thoroughly refreshed and fitted for  effective action.  Minister Wu has not been  clothed with powers by his government to effect a settlement of the  Chinese trouble directly with the  Washington authorities. The officials are inclined to believe that no  such large power as this will be  conferred upon him, though he  may, as do the Chinese ministers in  Europe, play a most important  part in the preliminaries to the institution of -regular negotiations  through commissioners for a final  settlement.  Gold Discoveries in Lardo.  Kaslo, September, 11.���[Special  to The Tribune.]���A very important  find of free milling ore has been  made in Lardo, which up to the  present has not been thought to  possess gold as well as silver ledges,  The discovery was made on Lake  Creek, on a claim belonging to the  Gold Hills Mining Company of Toronto. Assays of $12 and $19 have  been obtained. If these values are  maintained the company will have  a big thing.  MORE MURDERS REPORTED  In Chinese Missions.  Tien-Tsin, September 3, via Nagasaki, September 10.���The Americans  and British are considering the  feasibility of transferring their  winter supply base from Tong Ku,  to a point near Shan Hai Kwan, on  the gulf of Laao Tung, wliich is  free of ice and is also a railway  terminus. The chief difficulty in  the way of the project is the lack  of troops to guard the railway.  The British marines and two naval  "guns have been withdrawn on shipboard.  Thirty-five villages in the vicinity of Tien-Tsin have petitioned  the provisional government for  protection. Boxers are reported  massing along" the grand canal.  The latest reports received here  from Pekin say the empress dowager is in the province of Shan Si,  and that the Japs are pursuing her.  A Christian refugee from Piao Ting  Fu asserts he saw a large force of  Boxers .between Pekin and Piao  Ting Fu. He also confirms the  news of the massacre (already   reported)    by      provincial  soldiers       of  missionaries    at  on August 15th.  the American  Fen Chow Fu,  Mr. Atwafcer and  his wife, with their two -children,  Mr. Legren aud his wife, and Miss  English, were beheaded. He confirms the report of the killing of 23  members of the English mission' at  Tai Wuan Fu. At Tai Ku, where  Miss Coombs was thrown into the  flames of the burning- mission  buildings, and where ten French  priests were killed, all the members"  of the American mission were exterminated. The men making a  gallant stand until their ammunition ran out. He says there is no  doubt that Miss Whitchurch and  Miss E. E. Searell .were murdered at  Hsiao, and he confirms the reported  massacre of Miss French and Miss  Palmer, as well as of hundreds of  native Christians, in the Chi Shien  district of the province of Shan Si.  The same refugee, gives further details as to . the- condition of- the  party of foreigners already reported  as under siege August 25tli by  Chinese regulars in the province of  Shan Si, and says that the party  consisted of four priests, five nuns,  five European engineers and several  missionaries,' and that they were  surrounded by troops who had retreated from Pekin.  ENFORCINC MECHANIC'S LIEN  County Court Cases.  An interesting mining case was  argued at the county court yesterday before judge Forin, the action  being Nelson vs. Fulmer et al, and  Cross vs. Fulmer et al. The suit is  to establish mechanic's liens against  the-Beatricemine.���Judgment-was-  reserved.  The property involved is a well-  known mine in the Lardo district,  owned by F. Fulmer, J. Boucher  and J. F.Boucher. In 1898 Beer  Brothers, of Nelson, took a working  bond on the property, which they  afterwards assigned to one Briggs,  as trustee for a Chicago syndicate.  Briggs hired men to work the  mine, carried on development and  shipped a quanity of ore. Then  the syndicate suspended operations,  leaving a number of men with unpaid wages. Four liens were filed  against the Beatrice, and the  case was heard yesterday, W.  A. Galliher appearing for plaintiffs  and S. S. Taylor, Q. C, fo. the defendants. Technical objections  were made to the affidavits filed by  plaintiffs, and the position taken  thafc under the arrangements existing between the owners and the  parties working the property, the  former were not liable.  During the afternoon the suit of  Lawr vs Byers was.tried^.. The defendant recently purchased;, lots 23  and 24 in block 70 from Mrs. W. F.  Traves upon which two houses  were in course of erection. Plaintiff Lawr did the lathing and  plastering on the houses and filed a  mechanics' lien to collect his accounts. W. A. Galliher appeared  for plaintiff and A. Johnson for the  defence.   Judgment was reserved.  Chamberlain's Manifesto.  London, Sept. 11.���Mr. Joseph  Chamberlain, secretary of state for  the colonies, in the form of a letter  to the Durliam Conservative Asso  ciation, issues an election manifesto.  Referring to the settlement in South  Africa, he said: "I should seriously  fear that if by any cause the Liberals were now returned to office  they would be ready to throw away,  iu connection with the settlement,  the position which has been so  hardly gained by the sacrifices of  war. I hope every elector who  feels that the arrogant and arbitrary tyranny of the Boer oligarchy,  culminating in an invasion of her  majesty's territories, requires to be  dealt with by a strong hand, will  support the Unionist candidates at  the polls.  BURIED THE DEAD AT SEA  Much Looting at Galveston.  . Houston, Texas, September 11.���-  The   tug   boat Brunswick, which  arrived here last night from Galveston, brought additional details of  the Galveston horror.     The terrors  of-Sunday were as nothing compared with-Monday.   An attempt  was made to bury the dead,- but  the ground was full of water and  it was impossible to dig trenches.  Aldermen MacMaster and. S. Mor-  risey secured authority to have the  bodies taken to sea for burial, and  a barge   was brought  up to the  Twelfth street wharf for,' that purpose.    The firemen rendered heroic  service in bringing the. bodies to  the wharf, but it was almost impossible to get other men to handle  them; .     ' ��� -- ���  During the storm and afterwards,  a great deal of looting was done.  Many stores had been closed, their  owners leaving to look, after their  families. The -waters forced in the  windows and left the contents of  stores and dwelling easy prey,.for  the marauders. Ghouls stripped  dead bodies of jewelry and articles  of value. Captain Rafferty, commanding the United States troops  here, was applied to for help and he  sent in seventy' men, the remnant  of the battery of artillery, to do  police duty. They arV patrolling  the streets under the- direction of  the chief of police."  An urgent appeal to the outside  world-was issued, and those who  respond are asked to send contributions to John Sealy, chairman of  the finance committee; W. C. Jones,  mayor. M. Lasker, president Island  Cifcy "savings bank; J. D. Skinner,  Galveston cotton exchange; C. M.  McMaster, Galveston chamber of  commerce; R. G. Lowe, manager of  the Galveston News,7or Clarence  Ousley, manager of the Galveston  Tribune.  At 2 o'clock Sunday afternoon a  meeting of prominent citizens was  held at the chamber of commerce  for the purpose of organizing to relieve the suffering and to bury the  dead. A burial committee was appointed, charged with collecting  and burying all dead. Inquests  will be dispensed with.  A Hameline, a traveling salesman  _whp_arrived_on_.the^-tugboat,-says-  that only one house is left standing  at Sherbrooke.    The mainland is  strewn with dead.  New York, September 11.���W.  H. Baker, vice-president of fche  Postal Telegraph and Cable Company, of New York, today received  the following dispatch from W. H.  Ordway, auditor of the Texas  branches of the company at Dallas:  "Superintendent English reports  manager Crowe and family at Galveston safe. Chief operator Johnston lost wife and children; night  chief Jefferson and family safe."  Germany Has No Designs.  Berlin, September 11.���At the  German foreign office general  Chaffee's dispatches to Washington, declaring the necessity of  troops remaining in Pekin, have  been noted with setisfaction.  Speaking with reference to the  statements that attribute to Germany ambitious -schemes on the  Yang Tse Kiang, a foreign official  said today: "Such statements are  absurd, as Germany has landed  only 500 men, whereas Great Britain and France have each landed.  Germany's action there is wholly  precautionary for the protection of  the lives and property of Germans."  India Gets .Needed Rains.  London, September 11.���Baron  Curson of Keddlestone, viceroy of  India, has cabled the Indian office  that good rains have fallen in Madras and Central Bengal and on  Gangetic plain, relieving all present anxiety regarding the autumn  crops in these territories. The  total number now receiving famine  rations has fallen to 4,334,000.

Shang-Hai correspondents confirm the assertion of Dr. Morrison,  the Pekin correspondent of the  Times, that the military parade  through the imperial palace was a  Russian triumph. As the result of  Dr. Morrison's account a timely reinforcement of the opinion is beginning to be expressed in the London  papers to the effect that in spite of  all her talk about the evacuation of  Pekiu, Russia has made no sign of  withdrawing, but on the contrary  is continually shipping fresh troops  from Odessa to China.  ��� The Shaug-Hai correspondent of  the Morning Post says it is considered certain that Li Hung Chang  has bribed Russia and Germany to  evacuate Pekin. The former will  get Manchuria. It is not known  what terms have been offered to  Germany.  Berlin, September 11.���Private  dispatches received here today say  the international forces attacked  the Chinese fortifications at Pei  Tang, north of Taku, and that tho  losses were considerable.

The complainant was  .Abel Lustick of Rochester, who  testiQed that he had lost $10 at  poker in Mendall's rooms, Mendall  having received a rake-off of five  cents every time the cards were  dealt. In view of a decision given  several years ago by the late judge  Muir, and arguments by the crown  attorney at that time, magistrate  Jeffs decided that poker was not a  game of chance, but a game of  skill, aud that it was not illegal for  a man to keep rooms for the accommodation of persons who wished to  play cards, if the players were all  treated alike, and the bank not  kept by any one of them.:' The  crown attorney protested against  such places as Mendall's being  allowed to continue*;,  A   NEW   LAMP.  Ottawa Citizen.  A powerful incandescent light  has been perfected by Mr. V. L.  Emerson of Ottawa, that uses coal  oil or naphtha as f tier and far exceeds in brilliancy any light yet  produced. The light is steady, soft  and white and a small table lamp  with this light will give more light  than an ordinary arc light and does  not nicker like arc lights do. The  cost of operating the light is said  to be about 1-6 of a cent per hour.  There is no gas holder or accumulation of gas to affect insurance.  No water is required to operate the  light as is required with all other  types of gas machines.  One jet of this light is said to be  about equivalent to about ten burners of light produced by the best  gas machines or city gas and the  expense of producing a light is no  more than is required for operating  an ordinary coal oil lamp. The entire lighting apparatus is portable,  and an apparatus that will light a  store or residence as light as day  may be carried in the hand. ���  A complete plant that will produce a thousand candle power may  be installed at a prico not exceeding $25, while a street lamp producing two thousand candle power  will nofc exceed $30.  The apparatus produces the light  by atomizing oil and mixing it witli  atmospheric air. The air and gas  produced from the oil are sprayed  on a Aim that is chemically treated  so that heat will not affect it. The  action of the air and the oil-gas on  this Aim produces an intense in-  candescency. The apparatus works  automatically after once' started  and does not require the care of an  ordinary coal oil lamp. Six 16-  candle power electric lights will not  give sufficient to make a shadow,  in the presence of this light.  Arrangements have been made  whereby Ottawa capitalists will  form a company to manufacture  the new incandescent of light as  perfected by professor Emerson.  Andrew Holland and other experts in light, who have examined  this new illuminating medium, state  that it far surpasses anything else  ���for-the���purpose���of���producing-an-  artiAcial light.  Mr. Emerson is now engaged in  getting out several styles of lights  for factory and store lighting, which  SALE BY TENDER UNDER JUDGMENT  ACT.  Pursuant to ordor of tho Honorable Chief Justice McColl, dated August 17th, 1(100, tho following described lands ancl premises are hereby offered for salo by tondor. viz., the interest of  David Kocfe and J1. Roddick and ICeefe and Roddick in aud to lots numbered (7), and oight (8),  in block numbered llvo (S), in tho town of Ymir  in tho province of British Columbia.  Sealed tenders for,tho puichaso of said lands;  will be rccoivod by mo until tho 12th day of September, 1!XX), at twelvo o'clook noon.  Dated at Nolson, B. 0., September (ith. WOO.  K. T. H. SIMPKINS.-  District Registrar Supremo  Court  of British  Columbia.  will give from 1000 to 10,000 candle  power.  A number of prominent concerns,  as well as individuals, have already  placed orders for lights, and the  new company will start out in a  short time with a large number of  orders on hand. The machinery  for the manufacture of the light  will be of the most modern kind,  whicli will enable the company to  produce a superior lighting apparatus at such a price as to place it  within the reach of all.  Heating and cooking apparatus  will be one of the specialties of the  company, so that the lighting apparatus will supply both heat and  light.  Mr. Emerson has only perfected  his lamp within the past ten .days,  and is making application for the  patents in Canada and the United  States. He claims that cities may  be lighted with this new lamp in a  cheaper and better manner than  with electric lights. The hollow  base of the poles may be filled  with coal oil whicli is conveyed to  the lamp above by small wires, and  a sufficient supply may be poured  into the pole at any one time to  last a month. By a clockwork arrangement the lamps are lighted  automatically. Any of Mr. Emerson's lamps may be made to give a  more powerful light by pumping  air into the oil chamber with an ordinary bicycle pump.  Only one such lamp is now in existence, and that is in use in Mr.  Emerson's house, 61 Primrose  avenue. It has such an intensity  that it may be seen from a long  distance away. By reason of the  lamp's brightness Mr. Emerson's  house may be at once located, as it  was last night by a reporter who  was groping hi3 way along the dark  streets on Primrose hill.  Mr. Emerson explained the  method of operating his lamp. He  had in the room an acetylene lamp  and six 16-candle power incandescent lights. He made it plain that  his light was much more powerful than the others bj' a  series of interesting experiments.  He placed a radiometer, a light  measuring apparatus, beside the  incandescent lights. The> delicate  wings barely moved in recognition  of the light's power. The acetylene  lamp caused them to travel about  four revolutions to the second. The  coal oil lamp made the wings revolve with such rapidity that one  could not be distinguished from the  other.  ., The coal oil lamp was extin1  guished and the-room seemed dark  in comparison, despite the fact that  the electric lights and acetyline  lamps were still burning. Mr.  Emerson showed how clearly colors  were brought out by this light.  Professor Emerson has also perfected at his laboratory a complete  new plant for, the treatment of  sawdust for the recovery of valuable products. Two extensive  plants will be constructed in the  United States this year according  to this system. It will bo remembered that one of these plants was  tested in Ottawa last year .and reported on in the most favorable  terms by professors Ruttan and  Nicholson of McGill university, and  has since demonstrated its coramer?  cial practicability.  j-^'-f _r'_? _>'^'^;_-'^'^_��'^'^,-��'C,lS,C,C,C'__['^,fl-i,__l,g,Sl,<----^   -s^-_<-A-_>-a-_��-_��-_--_>-_��'_��-_��-_>-a-a��-_>-ai-����.^-_>-->-��-_i._>._��._>.s-.

Hamilton (Ontario) Herald.  Since bis appointment as Dominion inspector under the alien contract labor law, Edward Williams  ,nas investigated eight cases of alleged violation of the law in this  city.   In all but two of these cases  he found the evidence insufficient  to warrant him in taking action.  Two workmen brought here from  Cleveland to work for the Hamilton  Iron  & Steel Company have been  deported by him, the violation of  the law in their cases being quite  clear.   This evoning Mr. Williams  will leave for Ottawa and Montreal  to investigate charges of violation  of the act in  those cities.   From  this it appears that his jurisdiction  is not confined to the Hamilton district or even to this province.   It  is too soon yet to assume that the  /intention of  the Laurier   govern-  ment is to enforce the alien contract  labor act as a permanent policy.  The sudden determination to en  force it and the appointment of an  officer for that purpose, after the  act has been hung up for  years,  may be evidence of a sincere desire  ^on the part of the government to  protect   Canadian   labor from the  unfair competition of cheap imported alien labor.    But the   government cannot reasonably complain if  its enemies charge it with having  p,iit off action until the eve of the  elections and then adopted it solely  for the purpose of influencing votes.  The only certain test of the government's sincerity can be made after  'the elections.   If the Liberals are  retained in power and if the gov-  Is now prepared to issue Drafts and  Letters of Credit on Skaguay, U. S.,  Atlin, B. 0., and Dawson City, N. W. T.  erument then continues to enforce  the act, there will be no reason to  question its sincerity.  In the meantime the enforcement  of the act will do good. , That good  is not to be measured by the num-  ber of' laborers deported for yiola-  "tioimof"tlie~~a^t7=It"il^tB=lje=liopeH=  that few of such cases will be necessary. The object of the act is to  prevent the importation of alien  labor under contract, and if Canadian employers of labor observe the  law there will be no occasion to put  it in force. And it may be added  that no excuse exists for the importation of unskilled labor into Canada. There is plenty of it to be had  at home. With certain classes of  skilled labor it is different. The  Herald is warranted in saying that  the law will not be used to prevent  employers bringing iuto Canada  workmen who are v'skilled in work  that is not done by Canadian workmen because there has hitherto been  little or no demand for it.

Grand Forks Gazette.  T. W. Holland, secretary of the  Grand Forks Townsite Company,  has returned from Victoria, where  he had been for some time looking  after the interests of the bill^grant-  ing a charter for the proposed railway between Grand Forks and Republic. He is much pleased over  the granting of the charter and  when interviewed on the subject  said that as soon as a few preliminaries could be arranged the work of  surveying the route would be commenced. Perhaps, he said, they  might be able to get to work next  week, but if not then the party  would be in the field as soon thereafter as possible.  Once the survey is completed the  road will be pushed through' with-,  out a moment's delay, as there is a  crying need for its completion at  The road presents no particular  engineering difficulties, as it will  follow the valley of Kettle river as  far as Curlew, and from there follow up Curlew creek and the San  Poil to Republic, a distance,  roughly speaking, of 34 miles.  The first work to be accomplished  will be the building of the line  from this city to Carson, and from  there over the line to the great  gold camp the road will be pushed  ahead at a more leisurely pace, the  first effort being to get the line  from here to Carson completed as  rapidly as rapidly as possible.  Held For Bigamy.  Moyio Leader.  W. R.

Hocking came to Moyie about a  year ago from Butte, Montana.   He  worked iu the Lake Shore mine aud  boarded at the Central hotel. There  he met Miss Jane Montgomery, and  as time passed the two became infatuated   with   one another.      On  the morning of the   13th of  last  January   the    couple-   walked   to  Moyelle station, boarded  the  train  and went into Cranbrook and were  quietly   married.      They returned  the following day and have made  Moyie their home ever since.   All  went well until a few weeks ago,  when Mrs. Hocking learned   that  ,her_husband-had_a-jvife-and^twr> in Salt Lake City,  Utah.     Then   the    trouble    commenced.    A warrant was procured  and Hocking arrested.   At the preliminary hearing Hocking set up  the plea that it was a case of mistaken identity.     That he had   a  cousin Avhose name is W. R. Hocking, and that it was he who was  married.     He  claims his cousin's  surname is AVilliam Richard, while  his is William Roland.    Sufficient  evidence was found,   however,  to  bind him over to appear before the  district court at Nelson for trial.

T.H.BROWN  Cyclists Badly Injured.  Neav Haven, Connecticut, September 11.���As the result of a spill  at the Colliseum board track tonight, Miller, the six day champion  of the world, it is feared sustained  concussion of the braiu, and Archie  McEachern, of Canada, was also  badly injured. The pacemakers on  the motor tandems were all more or  less injured. Miller and McEachern  were riding in the six day race (one  hour a night) aud coming into the  last lap of the 32 miles McEachern's  machiue sustained a puncture, and  tho swift Canadian rider ran full  tilt into his pacemakers. He was  hurled high into the air and lauded  among the spectators. The injured  motor then started straight down  the track into the path of the Miller  motor, which was coming around  the turn at a terrific clip, with the  result that there was a collision and  the men on both machines were  thrown into a heap. Miller, who  was riding very close behind his  machine, was thrown into the air  fully ten feet and landed on the  left side of his head against the  press box. His condition was considered to be so serious that he was  removed to the hospital.  Conservatives Meet.  A meeting of the Liberal-Conservative Association took place last  night at the board of trade rooms,  John Toye, vice-president, occupying the chair.
