 DAILY EDITION   BY MAIL  FIVE DOLLARS A YEAR  WEEKLY EDITION BY MAIL  TWO DOLLARS A YEAR  \iiii I  EIGHTH YEAR.  NELSON:  WEDNESDAY MQBNING OCTOBER 24  1900  PRICE FIVE CENTS  THE YERDICT WAS WELL  A Remarkiable Scene in Court When the Jury Found  Young Chenoweth Not Guilty.  THE LITTLE PRISONER THE MOST UNCONCERNED OF ALL  The Chenoweth murder trial  vound up with a genuine sensation  j eirei-day afternoon. "When the  rase whs turned over to the jury  foreman Gilchrist rose in his 'seat  Mild announced that the jury had  already arrived at a verdict, which  was" "not guilty." The crowded  courtroom broke into hearty cheers  and applause. Hats were thrown  into the air, feet were stamped and  the enthusiasm prevailed for several minutes. The court .officials  shouted for order, but their appeals  could not be distinguished. Altogether the scene was such as has  not been witnessed in a British Col?  uuibia courtroom within the knowledge of any of the counsel present  yesterday. The case.itself was of  an unusual nature, and t the outcome lifted it away above the commonplace. It was noticeable that  t.he reproof administered ' to the  spectators by Mr. justice Walkem  was of a mild nature.  The most unconcerned person in  the room was Ernest Chenoweth,  the seven year old boy in the dock.  He played with a watch uutil the.  continual falling of the timepiece  on the floor annoyed the court and  it was taken away. Then he was  given a piece of elastic and this  served to amuse him for the balance  of the day. The boy's mother sat  beside A. If. MaeNeill, Q.C., who appeared for'the defence. When the  rase drew to a close the court koom  was packed to its utmost capacity,  several officials who had gone but  earlier fjiiliug.to,,gGt.,in.. again .be-  civlftie of "the crush [ Excitement  ran high but the little prisoner was  Unite indifferent and manifested  not the slightest interest in the  proceedings,  ' When court resumed yesterday  morning C. W. Lurtey, a gun  maker, was placed v on the stand.  lie testified that the- ball whicli  killed tho Chinaman had been fired  from a smooth bore ritle, while the  gun produced in court aud alleged  to be the one used by Ernest  Chenoweth was rifled and would  have left marks of the rilling on  the bullet. His inference was that  the prisoner could not have killed  the celestial. Durney, Simpson and  Matheson, three men employed on  the Rossland . waterworks, swore  that - young Chenoweth had* told  them he had shot the Chinaman  and that *'he had never seen a man  die so quick."   The whole conversa  tion was conducted in a bantering  spirit, the men being pleased with  the"lad's repartee aud attaching no  weight to what he had said.  Constable Raymer was put on the  stand and was about to  refer to a  confession   claimed   to have been  made by the boy, when Mr. MaeNeill    objected ' strenously.     The  court ordered   the jury to retire  while the point was being argued,  lest something might reach them  outside of the regular channels of  evidence.   After   the   matter was  discussed his honor ruled that .the  alleged confession could not be admitted.   This closed  the case for  the    prosecution.     No     witnesses  were called for the defence, and  counsel addressed.the.jury.   Judge  Walkem also delivered his charge,  which ,was regarded as favoring the  defence.    He drew the jury's attention to the fact that the only penalty provided by the law in the  case of a conviction for murder was  that of death.   The jury then  returned its unanimous verdict without the formality of retiring, aud  the sensational  scene   already .referred to followed.  The last case on the criminal  docket was that of Regina vs.  Thompson and Henderson, the defendants being charged with  assaulting a peace officer. A sheriff's  deputy was in possession' of the  Strand saloon and the defendants  interfered with him. ��� When the  case was called lion. T. Mayne Daly  and A. H. MaeNeill appeared for  the defendants. They" pleaded  guilty to the charge and tendered  an apology to the, assaulted- officer.  This was accepted by -the' crown,  and the court imposed a fine of $20  and costs each.  The grand jury was discharged at  5 o'clock yesterday afternoon. They  haveprepared a presentmehtdealing  with the' conditiou of the court  house and other matters, which will  be filed with the registrar to be  forwarded to the department.  In Regina vs. Walker the crown  announced that no prosecution  would be made and W. A. Galliher,  who represented the defendant, was  informed ��� that his client was discharged.  Court resumes this morning when  the civil list will be commenced.  The criminal sittings have been the  most-expensive in the history of  Nelson, but a noticeable feature in  this connection was that the local  cases tried were dispatched at a  trifling cost to the province.  BACK FROM JOHANNESBURG  Story of Life There.  Major F. II. Brennan, M. D., of  Peterboro, has just returned to Toronto from South Africa, where he  has lived for the last five years,  having established a medical prac-'  tice and drug business at Johannesburg. There were,vin addition to  himself, between 200 and 300 Canadians resident in that city, besides  a considerable number of Americans who had been born in Canada,  numbering in all about nine hundred. A Canadian Association was  formed, of which Dr. Brennan was  made president.  When the Canadian government  endorsed Great Britain's action regarding the Transvaal, the association, true to its native instinct, met  and declared themselves in sympathy with Great Britain. This, not  unnaturally, invited the enmity of  of the Boer officials, and Dr. Brennan, who had been chairman of the  meeting, came in for very severe  treatment at the hands of the Johannesburg press. This was the  only exciting incident in the history  of the club.  The construction of the Boer  army and the condition of affairs  before the war,. are described by  Dr. Brennan as follows:  "Preparations for war had been  going on all the time I lived in the  country. Arms were constantly  being imported and immense supplies of ammunition purchased.  The recognized rifle at one time had  been the Martini, but ever on the  alert for supposed improvement,  the Mauser had . been substituted  by the government. The only regular militia was what was known  as the Staats Artillery, stationed  at Pretoria, and it was a military  body in every sense of the term.  Enlistment was for three years,  and the corps was officered from  the training schools of Holland.  "For military purposes the country was divided into electoral districts, each being presided over by  a commandant. These districts  were subdivided into wards, in  charge of field cornets.  "Every man in the country between the ages of 10 and 00 was  was liable for military service, and  subject to the summons of the field  cornet of his ward. Being summoned, he had to present himself  equipped with rifie, iSO rounds of  ammunition, a horse and a food  supply for a number of days. The  commandant assumed control of all  the menjln his district, while the  whole force of the country was under the commandant-general, who  was the only official, beside the president, elected by a full vote of the  country.  "To stimulate military proficiency, large supplies of ammunition were bought, and every encouragement was given to what  would be known in -Canada as target practice; and yet the Boers,  contrary to imagination, did not  prove to be exceptionally fine shots,  at least during the war. True it is  that a volunteer corps had been  formed in Johannesburg, composed  of men of all nationalities, but this  had been disbanded about a year  previous to the war.  "For weeks before the commencement of hostilities (October 11th)  the commandoes had been preparing  to cross the  border   immediately  upon the declaration of war," said  Dr. Brennan.     All the British residents in Johannesburg had thought  it the best policy to leave the town,  the doctor himself receiving a hint  to get out or run the risk of being  tried for treason, on account of the  attitude of the Canadian Association.   He proceeded to Durban, and  cabled to Canada, applying for enlistment in the first contingent. He  received no immediate reply, and so  accepted a vacancy as ship surgeon  on a transport going to India.     On  tlie first of February he was appointed medical- superintendent of  hospital ship.No. 29, in which capacity lie served until July, when he  was transferred to one of 52 transports which were conveying Germans and Hollanders home to their  native lands.  A NEW STEEL ENTERPRISE  CAPITALIZED    AT    $12,000,000  BY  PITTSBURG  MEN.  He Got Tired.  Nrw York, October 23.���August  Mirandi, a nineteen year old -Porto  Rican, who came from Rochester  yesterday, committed suicide in his  room on the top floor of No. 313  .West. Fourteenth street today by  inhaling gas. The photograph of a  young woman lay alongside his  body and with it was his own picture. A long letter in Spanish, apparently from an uncle, lay open on  the table. There was nothing written in explanation of the boy's act.  VON BUELOW IS FRIENDLY  EXPLAINS   HIS    POSITION    AND  VISITS   VARIOUS   COURTS.  German Troops Said to   be   Suffering  In Health  in  China���Government to be Indemnified.  Berlin, October_23.���AhiglCom--  ciar-bf the German foreign office  asserted this evening that Austria,  Hungary and Italy have expressed  their formal adherence to the  Anglo-German agreement, but that  France, Russia and the United  States have not defined their positions.  Berlin, October 23.���Count von  Buelow, the imperial chancellor,  authorized the Associated Press to  say that his accession to the chancellorship will mean no change in  Germany's friendly attitude toward the United States,'either politically or commercially. ��� Today  ���the chancellor visited the diplomatic representatives of the other  German states and it is said that  he will soon make ceremonious  visits to the courts of Saxony, Ba-  varia_and"Baden7      = "  Berlin, October 23. ��� Advices  from China show that the German  troops are)suffering in health. News  of the death of three from disease  was cabled home today. When the  attention of the German foreign  office was called to the successes of  the rebels in Kwang-Tung province  and the question was asked whether  the powers had yet discussed their  attitude toward the rebellion a high  official replied in the negative but  implied that it would soon become  necessary to discuss that point.  The papers say the first measure  that will be introduced in the  reichstag will be a bill indemnifying  the government for the expenditure  on the China expedition. <'  Guerrilla Attacks.  Cape Town, October 23.���Guerrilla attacks by the Boers are still  giving great trouble. General  French encountered opposition in  his march from Carolina to Bethel,  his casualties numbering 36. After  the arrival of lord Methuen at  Seeruste there was a reconnaisj  ance in force northward, which  resulted in the discovery of a large  body of Boers, who were only dispersed after an artillery and infantry fire lasting four horn's. The  British had four killed and ten  wounded. The Boers take shelter  in farm houses, which are crowded  >with women and children.  Lord Roberts is distributing a  fresh circular to the effect that  Boers voluntarily surrendering,  who have never taken the oath of  neutrality, would not be exiled but  would be permitted to. return to  their farms at the conclusion of  hostilities.

STOLE ALMOST A MILLION  From a New York Bank.  New York, October 23.���It was  learned this afternoon' that C. LV  Alvord, note teller of'the First National Bank at Broadway, and Wall  streets; was accused of .heavy thefts  and had disappeared. Shortly before 4 o'clock tho bank gave, out  the" following statement: "The  note teller, who has been in the employ of the First (National Bank for  many years, is a defaulter to a large  amount: His operations have continued for a considerable period and  have been skillfully concealed  through a manipulation of his balance book. The discovery was made  by one of the bank's employees a  few days after the completion of  an examination of the bank by the  United States examiners.  "During the continuance of his  predatious, periodical examinations  have been made by several distinct corps of examiners representing the comptroller's department,  all expert accountants, and the  bank has also had frequent independent examinations, neither of  which has developed any irregularity. The aggregate, of the false  entries, amounting to $700,000, has  been charged off on the books of  the bank out of the reserve fund  without diminishing the surplus  and profits of the bank.as reported  in its last published statement." It  is expected tlie shortage will be  materially reduced by a substantial  amount of which there is a fair  prospect of recovery.  Spain's New Ministry.  Madrid, October 53.���Tho new  Spanish cabinet took the oath of  office today. The now ministry of  Spain is composed as follows: President of the council, general Azcar-  raga; minister of foreign affairs,  marquis Aguilar Campos; minister  of war,  general Linares; minister  Of finance, Senor Allen de Salajar;  minister of the interior, Senor  Ugarte; minister of justice, marquis  Nadillo; minister of public instruction, Senor Garcia; minister of agriculture and public works, Senor  Sanchez Toca. The post of minister of marine had" not been filled  when these names were cabled tonight from Madrid. Senor Sagasta,  the former premier and Liberal  leader, declares the new cabinet  will hasten the ruin of the Conservatives. He believes a great mistake was made in not giving the  naval portfolio to Senor Sanchez  Toca, and that it was an equal mistake to retain general Linares as  minister of war. The press points  out that five of the ' nine" ministers  are generals. Tho official organ of  the army declares the time has arrived to undertake energetically  the reorganization of the army.  No Clew Discovered.  New York, October 23.���Attorneys for the Elizabethport Banking  Company have opened the safe deposit box in-the" Bans of New  Amsterdam formerly held by Mrs.  Annie Hart, but assigned to the  bank -last week, and supposed to  contain valuables bought with the  money stolen by William Schrieber,  the defaulting clerk. The lawyers  refuse to say what were the contents of the box, but they say  there was nothing connected' even  recently with Schrieber's defalcations nor anything which might  furnish a clew to his present where-  ���abouts.  WILL BE RELEASED TODAY  BADLY IN  MONEY FROM FRANCE RECEIVFD  YESTERDAY.  Ernest Mansfield Refuses to Sell His  Interest in the Joker to tho  - French Syndicate.  '" Ernesto-Mansfield will p'robably  be set at liberty this-morning.  Yesterday morning he received  from his principals in Lille, France,  a cablegram stating that they had  wired the funds owing for wages  in Camp Mansfield to John A. Turner, government agent. As the  message did not arrive until.after  banking hours Mr. Mansfield had  to spend another night in durance  vile.  The cablegram contained another  and equally interesting clause.  The French capitalists offered to  purchase from him a large proportion of his Joker shares at a figure  double the present Loudon quotations.' The offer was promptly refused. It is understood that Mr.  Mansfield has a double-barrelled  gun loaded for his French princi-  pals.   One .is   a suit for damages  arising out of his arrest and imprisonment here. Tho second is an  action under the English Companies Act to compel the management  to reopen the Joker mine and to  set aside the transfer of the Excelsior Mining Company's assets to  the new corporation, and which  Mr. Mansfield claims has very materially injured the value of his  Excelsior stock. To dispose of his  shares now would injure his standing before the courts and it is his  intention to force a showdown at  the earliest possible moment.  It is understood that Mr. Mansfield will proceed to England within a few days, and that he will remain there until the close of the  litigation which has been precipitated by the events of the past  week.

Grand Jury Calls Attention to the Unsanitary Condition:  of the Present Building.  ���:p��&-|  LACK OF VENTILATION A SERIOUS MENACE TO HEALT'  Tho grand jury which concluded  its   duties   yesterday   by handing  their presentment into court has  nothing good, to say in-regard to  the Nelson, court house.   After referring in complimentary terms to  Mr. justice- Walkem the presentment says:    "We desire to direct  attention to the condition of the  court    house.       It   lacks,    almost  shamefully, sufficient  accommoda-  tion-for the purpose for which it is  intended.-      As   your   lordship   is  aware there are no proper rooms  for the juries, all  being obliged to  herd in.one small room whicli has  also to   accommodate   the law library, while it is' not "too - much to  say that your health has _ suffered  for   want   of ventilation,- and  all  whose, duties have compelled them  to be present within  the' ill-ventilated court room "have been seriously inconvenienced and'discomforted.   We desire, therefore, that  the strongest possible representation be made to the proper authorities of the necessity for a new aiid  properly constructed court house in  the flourishing city of Nelson.'.'  The jury also calls attention to a  needed reform at" the piovincial  gaol in the following words: Opening from the much frequented office we found the watch cell or  place of confinement for. prisoners  committed for, capital crimes and  awaiting the carrying out of their  sentences."'

If Mr. Fielding would next announce that the  Liberals, if returned to power,  would raise tho duties on lead and  the products of lead to rates equal  to those imposed by tho United  States on lead and lead products,  Caiinda'seoiuinercial interests would  lie well served, and tho Liberal  party would be none the loser.  4 _���  ������������  Thio Le Iloi is said to  be  one  of  Lhe greatest mines on earth.     It is  said to have $100,000,000  worth of  ore in sight.    It is said that this  ore will net the shareholders in tho  company    that    owns    the   mine  $33,333,333.33.    It is said that  this  -great mine is shipping 20,000 tons  of   ore a   month   to   smelters   at  North port and Trail.  And it is said  that tho owners of this great mine  absolutely refuse to pay the jirov-  ince of British Columbia a dollar in  the   way   of   taxe.��, alleging as a  reason    that   the   ore mined and  shipped does not pay the costs  of  hauling the ore to Northport .and  smelting it there. If this is-a .state.--  in en t of fact,-the public Tn,; Great  Britain should be made aware of it,  for the shares of the company are  selling at a price that indicates that  the ore is mined and smelted at a  large profit. The provincial government should briug the managers of  the Le Roi mine up with a found  turn. A jail sentence for six months  for making false returns would do  them a power of good.  How much injury would be done  the province and the shareholders  of tho Le Roi company were the  fact spread broadcast by the London Financial News and other newspapers that tho ore of the great lie  Hoi mine at Rossland was absolutely valueless as a mining proposition;  that -it contains so small -values  that the gold and copper in it are  not sufficient to pay the freight  and treatment charges, to say nothing of the cost of mining? Is the  ore from the Le Roi valueless, or  are the managers of the Lo Hoi  guilty of perjury?  A Labor Organ Called Down.  Greenwood Miner.      ���  It is sincerely  to be hoped   that  the labor candidate for Yale-Koote-  nay-Cariboo does not hold  similar  views to those held by the editor of  the   Rossland    Industrial-   World.  One of the fundamental  principles  of the International Typographical  Union, of which both the editor of  the Nelson Tribune and the  editor  of the Industrial  World are members, is individual  independence in  all matters  outside the composing  room.    If the editor of the Tribune  is to be knifed .politically  for  supporting the party he thinks will  best   govern   the   country,   many  workers  in  the labor  ranks  have  .been mistaken  in regard,to  union  principles.   John Houston has been  a consistent union man for a quarter of a century, the editor of the  Industrial World has been a member of a  union for about one-fifth  of that time.    Since his  first newspaper venture in British Columbia  ���rthe   Donald - Truth���twelve    or  thirteen years ago, John  Houston  has . advocated the cause of. working men.   In all their fights he has  been   with   them.       Previous   to  tlie organization of a typographical union in Rossland he paid his  printers   twenty per cent   higher  wages than any other paper in the  interior of British Columbia.    During .the eight-hour agitation his was  the only daily paper in the province  that supported the men'as against  .the" Mine,. Owners' Association.     If  John Houston's unionism is a "back  number" variety, may providence  protect us from the "front number"  kind advocated by the Industrial  World..   If the editor of Tiie.Trih-  <usr believes that the country would  be benefitted by the election of one  of,the old party candidates, he has  a right to that belief, and Mr. Foley's  cause will not be strengthened by  calling Mr. Houston a traitor and a  back number.   Unionists .who use  such arguments are either bigots or  sissys, and the central committee of  the Independent Labor party will  gain, votes-by suppressing .the verdant scribe of the Industrial World.  If Chris Foley wins in this contest  it will be by brains and. the principles advocated by his party.:   In  order   to   have   the  former   commodity    enter   largely   into    the  editorial-part���of^the-campaign- it-  will be very necessary to remodel  the staff of Rossland's labor paper.

Nelson will have a distinguished  ecclesiastical visitor today in the  person of nionseigneur Falconio,  apostolic delegate to Canada.- Mgr.  Falconio is the head of the Roman  Catholic hierarchy in the Dominion by reason of his powers as tho  pope's special representative, and  occupies a position of prominence in  tho public eye. lie is an Italian who  has spent many years ^u English-  speaking countries and acquired  a thorough knowledge of the Anglo-  Saxon tongue and manners. The  apostolic delegate's personality- is  striking and impressive, but he is  affable and polished withal. Since  assuming his important duties in  Canada he has made hosts of  friends and few, if any, enemies.  Mgr. Falconio is paying his first  visit to tho west and after spending a few days iu the Coast cities  was about to return east, when  Rev. Father Perland arrived and  urged him to visit tho Kootenays.  Accordingly ho will arrive tonight  on the evening train and remain  over tomorrow.  At S o'clock tomorrow morning  .the apostolic delegate will celebrate���  mass at the Church of Mary the  Immaculate. * In the evening, at  7:30 a special service will be held in  the course of which the distinguished visitor will address the  congregation.  Mgr. Falconio is accompanied  only by his secretary, Rev. Father  Fisher, an English clergyman, and  will be the guest of Father Ferland  while in Nelson. He leaves on the  Crow's Nest boat Saturday morning for Regina where he will remain a day or two as -the guest of  the,lieutenant governor.  son's  ,9  ���Port wh*  f  \JUu  1%'  .^BlOLUiX.-,  ITiin Titmirxio lint placed a part of one roliimn  at I hi; disposal of the Independent Laborer.-),  whose views will bo expressed therein from  I uno to time during the campaign.

Iu Victoria,  where these rates prevail, the net  income from the roads is sufficient  to pay the. federal taxes, which is  another convincing proof of the  possibility of government without  taxation.

SLOCAN JUNCTION HOTEL  J. H. m'cMANUS, Manager  PLATFORM  Adopted by the Liberal-Conservative Party in Convention  at Revelstoke, September 15th, 1900  We, tho delegates of the Liberal-Conservative party of Yale-Cariboo  constituency, iu convention assembled, reaffirm the principles of the  party, and more particularly.that cardinal principle, protection to home  industries, and that.that principle be carried out so that all sections of  the country shall equally share its benefits.  The one industry on which the prosperity of this constituency is  almost wholly dependent is mining; and we believe that our mining'in-  dnstt-ies are as fairly entitled to protection as" the manufacturing industries of-"Eastern Canada ; therefore, we advocate that'the duties on lead  and lead prodi iets_bei ne reased, so that they shal 1 be as high as'tho.se now  "imposed l7yr"tli<r.TJnited States on the same articles.  ' That the output'of the precious metal mines is largely increasing,  therefore we favor the establishment of a mint, so that the specie in circulation shall be that of our own instead of that of a foreign country.'  We advocate the restriction of the immigration of Chinese and Japanese, and all classes who "cannot become good "citizens of the Dominion  of Canada, and suggest the 'adoption- of the principles of the Natal Act.  British' Columbia has not now the representation iu the federal parliament that she is entitled to: therefore 'we advocate that when the  redistribution of seats is made that this constituency shall be given representation according.to its population:  ' '  That it augurs well for the success of the party that Hugh John  Macdonald has decided to leave the field of provincial politics to take  part, in the larger one that affects the people of the whole "of Canada:  WHOLESALE TRA'DE  DERATED AND MINERAL WATERS.  rPHOItPE & CO., IiIMITRD.���Corner Vernon  ���*��� and Cedar streets, Nelson, manufacturers  of and wholesale dealers - in aerated waters and  fruit syrups.

The principal complaint against the  '(.hinanmn is that he sends  all his  money out of the country.   Yet we  , venture to say that there is a  hundred times as much money sent out  of the country every year by Slavs,  Dagos ami such like as there  is by  t'liinameu.  Last Saturday   was  pay-day in  Fernie, and a good pay-day  it  was  ���quite sufficient, under proper conditions, to make a town double the  size of Fernie  lively for a  month.  But alas! it is not thus. And why?  Too many Chinamen?   No.   Do the  men not  make  good  wages?    Oh,  yes, they all make good, big wages,  but   they   don't    spend    it   here.  ' That's the rub.  . Any one who.visited the postoffice  on Monday found the money order  wicket crowded with foreigners, all  ��� eager to send every cent they could  possibly spare out oTf the country.  On the same day, before 10 o'clock  in   the   forenoon,  something over  four hundred and fifty dollars was  taken in at  the express office for  the same purpose from these people.    Many of them live no better  than Chinamen, about'the only difference "being that they consume  more beer and get drunk whenever  they keep enough of their earnings  here to do so.   Chinamen are'quite  as sanitary as they and far more  law-abiding.  We have no desire to champion  the-cause of Chinamen���far., from  it, but simply desire to show that a  great deal of fuss is being made  about Mongolian labor when we  have in our midst an ever-increasing horde of white foreigners who  are'no better, but of whom seldom  a word is ever heard from labor  agitators and politicians.  The town of Fernie is certainly a  good town for its age, but how  much better would it be were every  man in the employ of-the coal'company a good Britisher instead of a  THE BANK OF  BRITISH   COLUMBIA  NELSON  ���Established in Nelson in 1890.

Had this $(5000 been distributed  among the business men, as the  greater, portion of it would have  had it been earned by British subjects, every man, .woman and child  in the town would have benefitted  bv_it, but  instead  of that it  has  left the country forever. Yet seldom or ever is a word said about  this class of foreign labor, in fact  many of them are welcomed as  ".settlers.'1' They are not settlers.  They are leeches. They simply  stay in the country until they stick  a knife into each other, or earn  ytiffieient money to take them back  from whence they came and keep  themselve.'. and their relatives in  ease there.  A Slav is no better than a Chinaman, and a Dago is no better than  ji Slav. Chinamen, Slavs and Dagos  are a detriment to the, country, and  always will be, and until there is a  better elass of wage-earners in  Fernie the town will never be what  it should.  If trades unions and government  commissions would look into this  matter thoroughly they would iind  that there are thousands of so-called  white men ��� foreigners ��� in the  country who are more of a detriment to.it than Chinamen.

If he was unjustly  censured for conducting a campaign in a corner instead of carrying'out his original plan, lie was  rightly held responsible for failure  at Coleuso and Spion Kop,although  colonel Loug disobeyed orders in  .one battle and general Warren was  unmanageable in the other.  I le was enabled to partially retrieve his reputation by subsequent  good work, but there will bo no dis  sent from his own manly confession  that he justly lost the chief command. That general Buller was offered the chief command in succession to lord Roberts and declined  il; is not officially confirmed. Boiler's tribute to sir Evelyn Wood  will bo helpful iu keeping him at  the post of adjutant-general, where  his term will not expire for two  years. Wood's deafness would  have been a great.obstacle to success in the field. General Boiler's  reference to the tremendous strain  on the individual soldier under fire  day after day ought to moderate  the zeal of the agitators for sweeping and drastic military reforms.  A system which develops heroism  and patience in the individual ^sol-  dier is not so black as it has been  painted.

The death near Allentown, Pennsylvania, a few days ago of one  Ileffner recalls the fact that he was  one of 40 children of, John. Ileffner  of Reading, who was run over by a  train in that city 15 years .ago.  Ileffner was one of Reading's characters and was in the full vigor of  health when he was" killed at the  age of 69 years. It is doubtful if  .his record in the parental line has-  ever been equaled in this  country.  lie was a dwarfed hunchback and  was born in Berlin in 1816. He  came to this country in 1843 and  settled-in Reading. Until his death  he made a living by gathering and  selling rags, paper and junk. His  remarkable family history is part  of tlie records of the Perks county  .courts, it having been elicited a  short time before his death while  he was a witness in a lawsuit. He  was first married in 1840 and this  wife bore him 17 children in eight  years. Three, months later lie'  married again and five years later  he had, added 10 to his family. The  third Mrs. Ileffner became the  mother of nine children in 10 years.  " One day in the fall of 1885 the  father of 40. children was crossing a  railroad track and was run down  and instantly killed. His widow,  at latest accounts, and a large imin  ber of his children are still living in  Reading.   Too Many Partisans.  Toronto Telegram.  Liberals insist that there is nothing in the leadership pr policy of  tho Conservative party which would  justify them in preferring Tupper  to Laurier. Conservatives hasten  to affirm that they can see nothing  in the conduct of Laurier or his  government to persuade them to  turn their backs on Tupper. Canadians who recognize sir Wilfrid  Laurier and sir Charles Topper as'  forces which can operate to retard  or promote the public interest, have  no particular reason to throw up  their hats for either one party or  the other. They have still less  reason to hold aloof from politics.  The man who does not vote at all  is as useless to his suffering country as the man who always votes  oneway.   Her Skin Turns to Stone.  The attention of. the medical, fraternity lias been attracted by the  strange case of Miss Theresa Kop-"  insky of East Titusville, Pennsylvania, who is suffering from scleroderma, whicli is practically a petrification of the skin. She has had  the disease for the last 10 months.  The young woman is reduced to a  mere skeleton and is almost unable  to move, although she eats heartily.  Her skin is very hard and emits a  peculiar sound when struck. She  suffers intense pain. Cases of this  kind are rare.  Long Reign of England's Queen.

When the hill is covered the crew  will commence rawhiding to the  point oh the road where the haul  begins. McVeigh Brothers expect  to erect stables at both ends of the  road with an aggregate accommodation for forty horses. Tho class  of ore to be shipped is high-grade,  the concentrating grade being  saved on the "dump in contemplation of the erection of" a mill next  spring. The road promises to be  one of the best in the district. The  grade is comparatively light, witb'a  gradual slope to the lake.  Ore from the Society Girl property is being shipped to the Hall  Mines smelter.  M.S. Logan, managing director  of the Juno company, is in the city  on his regular trip of inspection.  Tlie development,work on the property has-been ..under way for a  couple of weeks and excellent progress has been made. The nature  of the rock makes, drifting on the  lead comparatively cheap.  Work at thp'Birds Eye mine is  progressing steadily.    The contract  \iov 25 feet "of sinking in the shaft  has been completed, and the crew  is now engaged in drifting 15 feet  iu each direction,.; When this is  finished   it  is  probable a 307-foot  .tunnel will be driven to crosscut  the lead.   The property is showing  up well. -  Archibald Cameron,of the Yellowstone mine was in the city yesterday on business. He states that  matters at the mine are progressing  splendidly, and that the devele-p-  ment under way. is turning out  most satisfactorily. The Sheep  Creek country, in which the Yellowstone is' located, has been  staked from . Salmo up, and if the  Yellowstone turns" out as well as is  predicted the district will undoubtedly be a. centei" of activity next  spring.      _      J   ^PERSONAL?���.
