TWO YEARS IN  THE PEN  Tor Boiling a Companion.  Frank Beck, alias William Jones,  was convicted yesterday at the  court house on the charge of theft  from the person, and sentenced to  two years in the provincial penitentiary at New Westminster.  The evidence for the prosecution  established the fact that the prisoner "rolled" a man named Harris,  at the Sherbrooke house. The two  had been drinking together, and  both went to sleep on chairs. Beck  awoke soon after, walked over to  -ilarris-and-afrer-shaking-hini-slid-a-  hand into Harris' overalls aud  neatly withdrew the sleeping man's  money. The act was noted by one  of the. boarders at the Sherbrooke,  who'happened to be setting where  he could see. the whole performance.  Other witnesses swore to Beck  having been broke and then acquiring money suddenly.  Beck's cross-examination of the  witnesses was close, and his method  of holding them to a "straight reply  in the negative indicated considerable knowledge of legal procedure.  The chain of evidence was complete  anil Beck was sent down for two  years. "He was only released from  the provincial jail on August lflth,  after doing several months for  theft at Robson.  sing as the result of the recent gale,  aud much alarm is felt for their  safely.

IT WAS A JAPANESE TRICK  Employing Contractors to Blame.  '' VANOonvi.i., ' September 24'.���"  I Special to Tho Tribune].���A plot  to defraud the Dominion govern  ment developed this afternoon in  the police court examination of the  eleven Japanese charged with  falsely swearing that they were  properly entitled to become British  subjects, in that they had been  residents of British Columbia for  four years. It was proven that  Japanese contractors had obtained 'the naturalization papers, and forwarded them to Japanese in their employ, and the  latter did not even know the contents.    One   Japanese   never" even  landed in Vancouver, but was  transhipped direct to the Skeena  river, up the coast, and received his  papers two months later, not knowing what they meant.

VANCOuyER,     September    24.���  [Special to The Tribune.]���Sir Hibbert Tupper opened the campaign  for the Conservatives in Vancouver  tonight, holding au audience, which  packed   the   city   hall    for   three  hours, with  scarcely an  interruption.    He referred at length to the  many broken pledges of the Liberal  party,   particularly    to    Laurier's  notorious pledge made in a telegram  to J. C. McLagan, in 1800,' that the  Chinese question was not a epiestion  in the east, and   tho views of the  Liberals of British Columbia would  prevail.    In-spite   of this   pledge,  which a Philadelphia lawyer could  not get around, it must be  written  under the promise, the same as under all the other anti-election  promises of Lauriei',  "False,"  without  meaning it in a disparaging sense.  Sir Henry Joly, guide extraordinary to Li Hung Chang while in  Canada, who had received the  Chinese order of the Double  Dragon, was now lieutenant-governor of British Columbia, and  Laurier, who appointed him, was  the man whom Maxwell said was a  statesman, and who was the greatest friend of labor. The speaker  said^ the free trade policy of the  government prevented .them from  doing anything else than allowing  the people to buy in the cheapest  market and sell in the dearest, and  the perilous Mongolian labor was  cheap enough in all cases.  Sir Hibbert bitterly arraigned  the government for their broken  promises as to a tariff for revenue  only, and their pledge to reduce  the taxes and expense of the conn-  try. He also criticised their railway policy. The government was  on trial, and he thought it was the  easiest thing in the world for any  man to expose the perfidy and false  promises of the Laurier administration.     '  A NELSON MAN'S PATENT.  It1 will be of--interest -to Nelsonites to learn that W. Valentine  Hunt, manager of the Bonnington  Falls power house, is one of the  world's best known inventors in  the animated picture line. The  animatograph to be exhibited at  the opera house tomorrow night is  the product of his genius, and it is  recognized to be the most perfect  apparatus of the kind made. At  the present time Mr. Hunt is devising a camera which is to take negatives without the vibration which  has hitherto been the great drawback to all moving picture machines,  lt is understood that he is succeeding in perfecting the apparatus  and will soon be in a position to  announce its completion.  Mr. Hunt is the original patentee  of the animatograph and travelled  for several years in England with  the machine. In 1890 he made a  tremendous hit with a picture of  the great Derby race, m which the  "prince of "Wales won the Derby for  tho first time with Persimmon. The  race was run at 1 o'clock, and Mr.  Hunt developed his pictures in  time to exhibit the same night at  the Alhambra, theatre, where the  series was recei ved w i th ii n prece-  dented enthusiasm. The attraction ran at the Alhambra for fifty-  two weeks, and has never been  shown on this continent. At tomorrow night's entertainment no  fewer than .'.2,000 pictures will be  thrown on the screen.  Will Fight Departmental Stores.  Toronto, September 24.���The retail merchants of Toronto have decided to fight the departmental  stores through the royal commission  on taxation. The members of the  association have decided to place  fullybefore the commission evidence  regarding the effect of the methods  of departmental stores upon the  general retail business throughout  the city and province, with special  reference to the incidence of taxation. The following resolution  was unanimously carried : "That  the merchants of this eity ' and  province be asked to subscribe the  sum of five thousand dollars ($5000)  for the purpose of compiling and  producing evidence to lay before  the recently appointed royal commission."    King Knocked Out Early.  Rossland, September 24.���Andy  King, feather weight champion of  British Columbia, whipped Mike  Early, the champion feather weight  of New York, in the third round at  the   International  tonight.

In .the first round honors  were even, but iu the second King  struck Early a right-hander over  the heart, broke a rib' and kicked  him down. He knocked him down  six times. The third round lasted  hardly a minute and was a succession of knock downs. Early was  plainly out-classed, although he put  up a gallant fight.

Washington,September 24.���The  state department has been notified  of the fact that tlieFreuch government had adopted Tan attitude  similar to that of the United States,  in replying to the'German note,and  that fact -was duly "reported by the  Associated Press. In addition it  was stated that the government of.  Russia was in   line  with  that  of  _>  France in-this matter. There is a  disposition to minimize the difference between the United States and  Germany ou lhe;poii_tof delivery of  the Chinese ringleaders before negotiations, and-,it is pointed out  that the only reason for differing  was a profound'conviction that a  deterrent effect could be produced  upon the Chinese people as a  whole, only by allowing their own  government to'degr'ade and punish  the guilty par��i,es. - The sole punishment, if applied .by a foreign  power, would fail of a reformatory  effect, as the Chinese, people would  venerate the memory of the -martyrs, while the Chinese belief,  which arrogates to itself tho peculiar right to reward and punish  after deiith, might elevate the victims of the'allies, and thus offer au  incentive for a- repetition of the  outrages.

As a Punishment for Invasion.  London, September 2-1.���The  British and continental press is  still discussing America's reply,  which is generally regarded as encouraging Li Hung Chang to delay  the negotiations. General Gribsky,  military governor of Amur, has  published elaborate regulations,  placing all the regions along the  Amur river, now occupied by the  Russians, entirely under Russiau  law and authority. The Chinese  are forbidden to return to the left  bank of the stream. He has also  issued a proclamation declaring  the annexation of Manchuria to be  a punishment for the attack made  on Blagovetchensk, aud exhorting  the inhabitants hereafter to respect  Russian power and live in peace  and quietness on their fields.  A semi-official communication to  the Cologne Gazette, disavowing  any desire on tho pait of Germany  to execute the instigators of the  outrages on the strength of the  testimony of the foreign allies,  says: "The international court of  justice "would decide upon the question of guilt, and would pronounce  sentence. To look on complacently  while a mockery of justice, such as,  the United States demand was being enacted, would mean a renewal  of the massacre."  , Vienna, September 24.���The admiralty has received the following  dispatch: "Taku, September 24.���  The Russians occupied the fortifications at Lui Tai yesterday." Lui  Tai is situated about 40 miles  northeast of Tien-Tsin, and is about  20 miles due north of Taku.  Verdict Against the Company.

That  is the decision of the .supreme  court "just" handed -down.- The  plaintiff was ejected from a  train at Pasadena. She offered the  conductor a round trip ticket from  Cincinnati, Ohio. The latter asked  her to write her name, which she  did. The conductor then took the  ticket up, telling the woman that it  did uot belong to her, and she  would have to get off the traiuat  the next station if she did not pay  her fare.

Pennsylvania, September 24.���The four big rolling  mills of the Susquehanna Iron &  Steel Company at this place are  closed down today as the result of  a strike. Last week it was announced that a twenty-live per  cent reduction in wages would go  into effect today, and the men noti-  fied the management that they  would not accept the cut. The  company remained firm, and this  morning not a single man reported  for work at any of the four mills.  About 1500 workmen   are affected.  The Saloon and Its Victims.  Faribault, Minnesota, September 24. ��� Word was received hero  tonight that a cyclone struck Mor-  ristown tit six o'clock. Six men  were- killed, and a large number  more are missing. The report is  meagre. A large tree was carried  over a housetop and deposited on a  brick building, used as a saloon,  which was completely wrecked, and  from whicli the bodies of six men  were taken. The report does not  say how much damage was done to  property.   Casting Oft' Their Sins.  New York, September 24.���The  Jewish year, 5,001, was' generally  observed in Ghetto today. Some of  the orthodox Jews observed the  ceremony of casting their sins into  the water, going to the bridge and  the east side, wharves, and, figuratively speaking, shaking from their  garments all sins of the past year.  The people of the quarter continued  the festivals into the night. Many  prayers were said today nt the  sound of the shofar or ramshorn.  Another Disaster in Texas.  Austin', Texas, September 24.���A  telephone message received here  last night by the chief of police  from Llane says that San Saba,  forty miles north of that place,  containing about 1000 people,   was  partially swept away by the flood  in the San Saba river, which was  still rising. All the bridges have  been carried off. No news could be  had from San Saba tonight, the  wires all beiug down. It is feared  that there has been great loss of  life iu the bottoms, as the rise was  in the night and came without  warning.    GERMANY   IS VERY  SORE  Over America's Withdrawal.  Berlin, September 24.���The  refusal of the United States to accede  to Germany's proposition regarding  the   Chinese   settlement is prominently commented   upon   by the  entire German press.    In  spite of  the previous intimations,  through  Washington cables, the refusal Jias  come as a great surprise.     A  high  foreign  official,    referring    to the  matter today, said :    "Germany adheres firmly to her proposition. She  has had uo occasion to doubt that  favorable answers will come  from  all the other powers. ��� We have received hints that Russia.will agree  to the German note, and  the same  course   is confidently expected  of  Japan and Great Britain.   AVe hope  the answer of the United States is  not final, especially in view of the  possibility that it was influenced by  temporary conditions."  The press comment varies widely,  although generally in a tone of disapproval and regret. The Vossiche  Zeitung deplores the evidences of  growing discord among the powers,  aud predicts a speedy breaking up  of concerted action. The Frankfurter Zeitung remarks: "An unpleasant sequence of the American  position will probably be the increasing obduracy of the Chinese,  whose opinion is now strengthened  that the energies of the other powers will be intermittent, like those  of the United States.  BORDER IS NOW PATROLLED  Boxers Flee to Delagoa.  Lorenzo Marquez,' September  24.���British patrols have' reached  the Portuguese frontier.

It had a nominal.membership of eighty-five, which  was increased to one hundred and six the  night of the meeting at  whicli  the  delegates to the Revelstoke convention wero elected.    These men took  upon themselves the right to speak  for the live or six hundred men who  are expected to vote for the  party  nominee   at   the   coming  election.  "What a farce.   Tho sooner these  associations are smashed the better  it  will,  bo   for   the   parties   that  smash them.   If this is good advice  for  the  Conservative and  Liberal  parties to follow, it would be equally good   were it followed  by the  men who look to  the Independent  Labor party to cure all the ills from  wliich the body politic is suffering.  How many, of the men "who will be  expeeted to vote for the Labor caudate���if one should  happen  to be  placed iu the fields-are allowed a  voice in either selecting the  candidate or   managing the campaign?  Ifc- is safe, to say that less than half  u hundred "men are today taking an  active part in fche attempt to bring  out a Labor candidate, and ifc is safe  The Liberal machine of Nelson is  said to be dickering for control of  the Miner newspaper, the one-time  organ of the miner owners' associations, and the transit peddlers, and  now the official organ of the Chinese  who try to evade their obligations  to the city.  Hon.- A. G. Blair, minister of  railways, has replied to the ultimatum of president Shaughnessy,  of the Canadian Pacific Raihvay  Company, with respect to the handling by- the government of certain  of the Canadian Pacific's traffic via  Sfc. John during the winter. From  the reply of the minister of railways it is evident that he considers  Mr. Shaughnessy's communication  as a huge .bluff, especially in  view  of the fact that he was asked to  reach a decision, with respect to the  handling of a traffic of 200,000  tons of freight, inside of fifteen days. This Mr. Blair  says is an impossibility. In the  first place the Intercolonial railway has neither the rolling stock  nor the terminal facilities for the  handling of such a large increase  over the present traffic of the road,  and in tho second place it is not  clear from president Shaughnessy's  communication whether the Intercolonial is to receive all of the Canadian Pacific's Atlantic business, or  only such as might be considered as  unprofitable. The minister of railways evidently refuses to scare.  His suggestion is that the Canadian  Pacific continue to handle the St.  John business via Sfc. John during  the present season, and in return  he promises that the government  will honestly endeavor to come to  some reasonable and lair arrangement for the handling of next winter's traffic. Ifc would he difficult  to see what other reply tho minister  of railways could make.  Up to Date Photography.  Cris.NRVA, Now York, September  21.���Dr. AVilliam 11.

It.;  stopping the storing of goods or  rubbish beneath sidewalks or in  alleys.  -Mayor Houston;remarked that  the small building erected at the  corner of Hall and Front streets to  keep auxiliary hose for use in an  emergency had only three lengths  of hose in it at the present time,  while a reel for which the city paid  $700, was standing outside the fire  lui II exposed to the weather. He  suggested that the. Front street  building be enlarged to accommodate the reel which:would thus be:  pu t to use and protected from the  weather. In event of a fire this  hose could be got into play while  the alarm was being sent to the fire  hall. The council agreed to the  proposition.  THE BANK OF  BRITISH   COLUMBIA  NELSON  Is now prepared to issue Drafts and  Letters of Credit on Skaguay, U. S.,  Atlin, B. C, and Dawson City, If. W. T.  In regard to the storing of rubbish beneath sidewalks, it was  pointed out that the fire limits bylaw empowered the chief of the fire  department to deal with^this practice.  The report of the lire wardens  -was-adopted; =   Chief Thompson applied for leave  of absence to attend the annual  meeting of fire chiefs at Spokane  next month.    _f run ted.  A largely signed petition against  the existence of Chinese-wash-  houses on Victoria.street was read.  The citizens signing the petition  claimed thelaundries were a menace  to the health of the neighborhood  and damaged the value of property. The inatter was .referred to  the medical health officer.  Tho mayor reported that the Ci.  1*. U. asked $S0O for the two lots  adjoining the city hall, with certain deductions which reduced the  figure by about $100. The city, it  appears, however, is occupying a  C. I'. It. lot on the side hill used by  the corporation for bringing in  water, while the company wishes  to obtain a small piece of land on  Stanley or Lake streets, and suggests a deal. He suggested that  the whole matter bo included in a  by-law to be submitted to the ratepayers at the next municipal election. The agreement with the  company might include a clause requiring the C. P. R. to give the  city a right-of-way over its land  for a trunk sewer. The present  outlets were not satisfactory in  high water. The matter will be  further discussed later on.  The bread bylaw was read a  second and third time and left over  to the next meeting for final consideration and passage. It provides  that every loaf of bread sold in the  city shall be of the full weight of  one pound, with an allowance after  24 hours of one otiuce for shrinkage.

Troup's  new launch is lying at Hale's boat-  house and the work of setting it  up is to be commenced shortly. She  will not be launched this fall. The  hull will be fifty feet over all, with  a seven foot beam, .which will give  thecraft fast lines. The frame is  to be steel-planked with coast fir,  making a light but unusually strong  hull. The power will be furnished  by a fore and aft compound engine  and the launch when -completed  should be the fastest boat of its  size on the lake.  J. H. Matheson will probably convert the sloop yacht Gladiolus into  a gasoline launch. The craft is 27  feet long-, with a beam of 8 -feet,  and will make a staunch and roomy  .launch. Mr. Matheson talks .of  equipping her with a 0 horse-power  three cylinder motor, which will  generate a speed iu the fdadioltis'  hull of 8 to 9 miles per hour.  The tug ymir went ashore on a,  bar in the narrows yesterday morning while towing a barge to Nelson.  The Jvoknnee and Procter were dispatched to heir relief, but the International of the K.

The news that Gilbert Parker has  been nominated by the Conservatives of Gravesend to represent  that constituency' in the British  house of commons (a nominatian  which is equivalent to election) will  be learned ~.with'--pleasure' by Canadians. Mr. Parker's rise as a man  of letters has been rapid. When he  left Canada (some fourteen years  ago) he was an obscure young  teacher of elocution who had dabbled a little in poetry and journalism, lu Australia he did some  creditable jeurnalistic work, but  failed to earn a reputation. Then  he went to London and served a  long apprenticeship in magazine  hack-work. It was an uphill light,  but the young Canadian was not a  man to be easily daunted, aud he  cheei fully worked away,' patiently  waiting for the recognition which  he knew his merits deserved. At  last his reward came. In .1802  Pierre and, -His People was published, and the world saw that a  new writer of great talent had appeared upon the scene. Since then  Mr. Parker has published several  books, all of whicli have met with  great favor and have increased his  fame. He is uow acknowledged to  be one of the foremost writers of  English fiction.  Frank C. Campbell Dead.  Frank C. Campbell, late of the  Clark hotel, died Monday night at  San Francisco.
