Policemen Suspected ol' a Crime.
New Voile, March 3.—Startling developments    were   promised    today  'in     (ho
mystery which surrounds the murder of
Henry   Knit us the  crippled  Harlem undertaker, who was found dead in his little
shop   at  2128   Broadway last   Saturday.
His skull was crushed in with some blunt
instrument, while his   watch dog,   close
by,   was dumb, and   his wile,   upstair.;,
claimed to have been  asleep and   heard
nothing.   It is now believed that ono or
more policemen may have had a hand in
it.    Several   men   are   under  suspicion.
They include one officer attached to chief
Devery's office, two men in. the bicycle
squad, and a roundsman attached to an
uptown   precinct,   but   not  the  one  in
which   the murder took place.   Some of
the suspects  are alleged   to have, latch
keys   to  the Knaus home,   so that   they
could  let themselves in   when the  coast
was  clear.   The  theory is   that one  of
these uniformed admirers of the undertaker's buxom wife was in the house on
Friday night, and that Knaus returned
unexpectedly.     The trapped caller,   the
police believe, fell ruthlessly on the cripple with his night stick and beat in his
skull.   That the big watch dog made no
alarm is explained by the fact that it had
become used to these visitors and did not
look on them as strangers.   Mrs. Knaus's
alleged part in the terrible tragedy is yet
to be explained.   She has denied that she
knows the men who admit they know her
well, and who have been frequent callers
at the house.   She has not been arrested,
but is kept constantly under polico surveillance. '' - c   '       .
Smallpox With the Hill Party.
St. Paul, March 3.-—J. H. Carter,
colored, was yesterday sent to the pest-
house, being discovered to have a clearly
developed case of smallpox. Carter is a
sleeping-car porter and just came from
Spokane. He was employed on a special
ou which president Hill and other officials
of the Great Northern railway, who are
now. making a tour of inspection of that
road. He was sick while with the Hill
party and continued at work( until the
close of -the week, when he was'apparently unable to continue at work, and from
Spok_me he came to'this city. As soon as
it was learned that Carter had the smallpox, a telegram was sent to president
Hill, and.his' private car was .fumigated
thoroughly,, and his; entire: party.vaccin-.

_.   '   Received Two .Shocks and Still Lived.
Walkerton, Ont., March 3.—About mid-
, "night Thomas Potter was reading a paper
in  the power house,  and  while leaning
, back in his chair his head came in contact
with a live'wire carrying 1010 volts. This,
under ordinary circumstauces, represents
power enough to kill a man. Potter was
knocked down, and was found about an
hour after lying six feet;, away from
where he had been sitting, and the chair
upon which he had been seated was found
about ten feet away in another direction.
His assistant thought Potter was dead,
but upon shaking him found life was still
present. He then ran for assistance, and
upon hisreturn found Potter in the icy
waters of the race. He had thus received
two shocks.        ....

Trouble at a Colorado Mine.
Gunnison, Colorado, March .'.."-The.'e is
much anxiety felt here about the situation at the Vulcan mines, near here, as
the result of an effort of the company to
replace striking union miners with nonunion men. A non-union man named J.
O. Snow was killed last Monday in an altercation with some union miners. Warrants were issued for a number of men
implicated in the affair, and the sheriff
has started for Vulcan to make the arrests. It is rumored that governor
Thomas has been asked to have troops in
readiness, as resistance to the sheriff's authority is expected.
it is said, is making an effort
to control this branch of the paper
trade in the United States. The
company is capitalized I'or $150,000, and it
controls tlie English market, in this line.
It will remove all the machinery to Joyco
City, in this state, where ih will establish
a large factory. The Western Paper
Company is one of the .larjr««t manufacturers of lace paper, in  the  United States.
Improving and Out of Danger.
Rome, March .'j.—The following bulletin
was   issued   at  0 o'clock   this   morning:
"Tho Pope passed a quiet night, ho that
the patient was able to comply with the
desire of his physicians to not change his
position.    His natural functions are normal and  his general   condition  is good.
When the bandages.were removed it was
found  that the:wound was healing and
taking    its   regular   course.     The  Pope
takes food   easily and   digests   sufficient
nourishment. His temperature is 37 centigrade,    respiration   22,   and    pulse  70."
Dr.   Laponi,   in   an  interview  today,  is
quoted  as saying he thought operation
would  perhaps  be advantageous to the
Pope's health, and prolong his life beyond
tlie age he would have reached if   the
operation had not been performed.   Today is the anniversary of the Pcpe's coronation, which took place on March 3rd,
187S.   Elaborate ceremonies and fetes had
been planned for the occasion,  but as in
the case of the birthday festivities yesterday they b.ive been abandoned,  and the
day is marked with a general  feeling of
gloom and shspense over the Pope' condition.   The most cheerful man in Rome
is the pontiff himself.   He conversed almost in a cheerful vein with those at his
bedside.   .-.-.:.. :-..   - V : "■

The Drummer Knew About the Reunion and
Bet Accordingly. '
"If that drummer ever puts.up at this
house again,, I'll try. to make, his stay
interesting," said the clerk of a hotel in
one of. Michigan' liveliest towns, as he
scowled at a bellboy who was tryiughard
not to laugh.
"He came in here the other day, and,
after registering, turned the page back
and looked at the names of the day before.
'Say,' he said suddenly, 'I have discovered
a fuuuy thing in the last few days, and
that is that there are more persons registering under the name of Brown than
there are1 under the name; of Smith. I
don't know whether theBrOwn "family is
more numerous, or whether they travel
more than the Smiths. But it is .a fact,
to be foun(j on the botei registers than
there are Smiths.'
"That hash'c, been my experience,' I
answered, 'and you will'find that it isn't
true at this hotel, fbr there are six Smiths
registered here to one Brown.'
" 'Yon don't say,' he retorted. 'Now,
to prove what I say and make it more interesting, I will wager yoii that by the
time I'm ready to leave tomorrow there
will be more Browns on the register than
"I thought I had an easy mark, so I
took him up. He proposed that I should
buy him a 2o-(.eut cigar for every Brown
whose name Went down on the register,
and he would do the same forme when
the name was Smith.
"That was agreeable to me and I simply
chuckled to myself, for I knew- of at lease
two Smiths who were due, aud who
would undoubtedly be here before the
drummer left.
"Well, in less than ten minutes.it ber
gan to rain Browns. I never saw so
many Browns together in my life. The
hotel register began to look like a record
of the Brown family. Every few minutes
the drummer would call around, check up
the register and demand the cigars coming to him.
"The truth came out at last. That miserable drummer had discovered that there
was to be a reunion of the Brown family
in this city, and, learning that most of
them were going to put up here, he
sprung this scheme on me to gethissmoking for a month for uothing, and as if
that wasn't enough he has just sent me a
collect message reading, 'Done-up brown.'"
Ctot Three Months in Jail.
Provincial eanstable Wilson brought
two Italians to Nelson last night. Their
names are Frank Mendola and Nick
Tenollo, and their offence consisted in engaging in a scrap at Kusdonook, in. which
both drew revolvers and fired shots into
space. They were arraigned before George
Arthur Bigelow, J. P., who sentenced
them to three months in the provincial
Several Houses Already Established That Only
Sell to the Trade.
That Nelson is destined to be the wholesale center for the southern portion of the
interior of the province is a conviction
which is firmly fixed in the heads of the
men who are directing the affairs of the
half-dozen wholesale houses already doing
business in this city. They regard the
Boundary Creek country, the Slocan aud
East Kootenay as essentially their territory, aud they predict that the business
which they are doing iu it at present will
be doubled within the year.
Of the six wholesale houses doing business from Nelson that of Turner, Beeton-
& Co. is probably the oldest established.
The local house, which was opened in
November, 1S95, is a branch of the parent
house in Victoria, and in the few years it
has been established has scored no small
success iu securing the trade of the surrounding territory, each successive year
showing a doubling of the business of the
previous year. The local house carries on
the business of wholesale merchants, shippers and importers, and in drygoods is
without a local competitor.'.-....The other
UinesV carried include liquors, cigars and
tobaccos, and the territory covered by
the house includes that of Boundary
Creek, East Kootenay, Slocan and Trout
In the wholesale grocery business, A.
Macdonald & Co. at present have a monopoly,but in the grocery business the pre-
,seiit railway ia'es are rather against Nelson as a wholesale jobbing center. There
is, however, a prospect of at least two, and
probably three, other houses entering into the wholesale grocery business, when
it is expected that arrangements will be
made with the Canadian Pacific Railway
Company for concessions on local rates in
the distribution of goods carried into
Nelson over that company's lines which
'Will be equal to terminal rates. The new
houses which are likely to enter the
grocery business in Nelson are the Balfour Company of Hamilton, aud the Parsons Produce Company of Winnipeg.
Should they open in-Nelson, and the arrangements mentioned with the Canadian
Pacific Railway Company be made, the
Ulterior of the proviuce, from Greenwood
to Fort Steele, and from the international
boundary'north to Trout; Lake, will-be
directly tributary-'to Nelson. But until,
some such arrangements are made, Nelson .
cannot compete with the, Coast houses in
the grocery trade. The discrimination in
.the rates against Nelson,, as compared
Uwi.bh.the Coast' points,.enables-the Coast
houses'to lay goods down in interior
points more cheaply than the, same goods
can be laid down, from Nelson, and the
margin in the grocery business is so close,
that thisad vantage throws5the business
to the coast houses. - *
The firm of H. J. Evans & Co. is a rival-
of Turner, Beeton & Company's in the
liquor and cigar business,' and covers
much the same territory. ,The firm" are
also wholesale -commission merchants.
The firm reports a steady growth in business, and consider chat favorable railway
rates are all that is necessary to make
Nelson the wholesale center for the whole
of Southern Kootenay and Yale.
The CaliforniaWineCompanyis another
firm which is every day giving evidence
of the fact that Nelson is' the coming
wholesale center. In the distribution of
its goods, this company covers more
ground thau other wholesale house in
Nelson, adding to. the ground covered, by
the Others that of Cariboo." The firm
carries a: large stock of native wines,
which it imports in biilk and bottles for
The product business is divided between
the Parsons Produce Company, the: Brack-
man & lier Milling Company, J. Y. Griffin
& Co., F. R. Stewart, and the Kootenay
Supply Company. This business is not
hampered so much by unfavorable rates,
and by April l^t Nelson will be generally
recognized as the center for this trade.
On this date all the Kootenay business of
the Parson Prodi.ee Company will be centered here with brarich hoiis.es at Rossland, Greenwood, Revelstoke, atjd Orah?
From the wholesale merchant's point of
view, Southern Yale is looked upon as the
most proniising territory for business,
and the building 6f railways iii that section will increase it« trade with Nelson-
The district will probably be tapped from
two points. From the south by the Kettle
River Valley road, and from the east by
the Canadian Pacific. The business of
the Coast merchants into Southern Yale
will, therefore, be handled by an American road, and it will become an object
with the Canadian Pacific to foster Nelson's trade* iu Order to secure the business.
Transportation rates being equal, the advantage will be with Nelson merchants,
as goods can be received in two or three
days from Nelson to any point iu Southern
Yale, whereas it will take more than
double that time to receive goods from the
coast.       »

a strong resolution approving and supporting the passage of said bill.
And whereas, it appears to this council
that the matter of increasing railway
communication is of vital importance to

And whereas, the ultimate object of said
railway scheme is that the line shall be

Therefore be it resolved, that this council hereby grants its hearty eudorsation

this resolution be forwarded to the honorable the minister of railways and canals.

The meetiug of the city council on

And Order Reporters From Their August
A special meeting of the city council
was held this afternoon at 2:30 o'clock
with mayor Neelands in the chair and
aldermen Fletcher, Beer, Hillyer and
Kirkpatrick present.
The first business transacted  was the
report of mayor Neelands upon the sewer
contract of W. P. McEacheran.   The report stated that there was owing on the
account $311.70, with au allowance of $80
for extras.    Upon the account $1*10.50 had
been paid.   It was recommended that the
balance owing be paid and the council decided to do .so.
. The rules and regulations for the volunteer fire brigade were considered, and the
chief of  the   brigade   was   requested to
amend section three and enlarge the limits
in which the call men may reside.
Alderman Fletcher moued that the city
engineer prepare plans and specifications ,
for the laying of pipe in Ward creek, -
from the west boundary of block 5 to the
south boundary of block 9, and that tenders be called for the work. This was
agreed to.
' On motion of aldermen Beer the mayor
and city engineer were authorized to
have the condition of the roadway to the
Nelson & Fort Sheppard railway depot
Alderman Fletcher called the attention
oi the council to the necessity for supplying the people of Addition A with water
as soon as possible. He thought that the
power should be placed in the hands of
the city- engineer and public works committee, so that the pipe could be laid at
once, or as soon as it arrives in the city.
This was agreed to, as it was understood
that the health of the residents of Addition A demanded that they be supplied
with water at once. c
Alderman Hillyer directed the attention of the council to the fact that several of the property owners ignored the
requirements of the council which called
for*, connection . with the Baker street
The city clerk informed the council that
all property owners had been, notified
that they had to connect with_the sewer,
but it was thought that it would be a
harsh measure to insist upon the making
of the connections while the frost was
An the ground. For,this reason the matter' of making the connection had not.
been insisted upou at the time.
The city clerk theaVproduced, the form
which had"' been- uabufiin^the- notices", sent''
out by the former council, and it was decided to notify all who have not connected
with the sewer that they must, do so when'
the frost is out of the ground and they
are so notified by the city engineer.
Alderman Fletcher brought up the mat- '•
ter of replacing the bridge over Cottonwood-Smith creek. He said that he understood that it was the/intentioirof the old
council to.bridge.the creek at Silica street.
A suitable bridge "could be put in for $150,
and he moved that the engineer prepare C
the necessary plans and that the mayor
be authorized to have the work done by
days labor. - J     -     .  .
On the motion of alderman Beer it was
decided that the water in Cottonwood
Smith creek should be gauged.  •

of the whole with alderman Beer in the'
chair for the consideration of the bylaws

called the attention of The T_u_iuni.'s -

was    the    desire    of    the     committee
to    transact the business—which—was—

they pleased and intimated that they did

FRIDAY.. ......MARCH It, 1899
The members of the Liberal Association
are who disgruntled at The Tribune's
report of their annual meeting are trying
to get solace through the Miner by insinuating that the defeated candidate for the
presidency gave away the secrets of the
association. As a matter of fact, Dr.
Forin did not give The Tribune any information whatever, either directly or
indirectly. Some of the members of the
association are altogether too thin-skinned
to be politicians.
The mining districts in Southeastern
British Columbia now have one-third of
the white population of the province. To
supply this population from a common
center means the establishment of wholesale houses. Nelson is generally admitted
to be well situated for such a supply
point, and wholesale houses are
already located here and more are
inclined to come here. But there
is one disadvantage to be contended
against, that is, freight rates." The merchants of Nelson are at a disadvantage
Vwhen they come in competition with the

Pure Water Absolutely Dangerous.
Give us pure water, is one of the cries
of the day—yet Dr. Koppe, a distin-
tinguished German physician, assures us
that .chemically pure water is actually
poisonous, on account of its action as a
solvent of the salts from the animal tissues. Physicians, we are told, who prescribe distilled water for their patients
are doing them a serious injury/whereas
those who give mineral waters are guided
by correct principles, since these contain
so many salts that they can absorb no
more. Snow, glacier and mountain brook
waters are all declared by Dr. Koppe to
be dangerous, because they are exceed-

[New York Herald, February 2;Uh.J  Death has claimed the arch-charlatan  John Ernest Worrell Keeley, but what of  treasure chest, stocked again and again  in the last quarter of a century ? Keeley  had been an artificer in wood and iron  aud brass, an Indian fighter, a head  waiter, a first violin in an orchestra, a circus performer and a professor of legerdemain. He combined the skill of all these  trades and professions, invented the  Keeley motor and wheedled millions from  his fellow men.  "Here yon are, ladies aud gentlemen,"  he might have said, "Here is the great  Keeley motor ; now you see it move and  now you don't. Thanks. Observe, I  place it in the motor, so.. You'd like it  back? Stand right on that spot until I  improve the motor so that- it will work  and I'll declare a dividend."  Here is a list of some of the investments  to be charged to the. account of this charlatan of the nineteenth century :  Advanced by New York capitalists (1874).........? ' 10.000  Expended in perfecting the motor        00,000  Given by Mrs i_!ooin Meld Moore      100,(100  Stock of the Keeley Motor Co.  5,000,000  Total  .-r.So.^Q.OW  . Not tliatjthis by any means represents  all the money which has been .swallowed  up in the swiftly revolving motor. It  may be six millions, it may be ten millions ; for in the twenty-live years in which  " the new force which was'to be evolved  was exploited before the public-this magician of mechanics found thousands wjio  believed iu him and-backed their'faith by  greenbacks. , He never lacked for funds  ' with" which to carry,6n his weird experiments. The fiuaucial operations of the  Keely motor were involved in a.s much  secrecy as the mechanism itself.

Now that the personality of Keeley has  gone out from this "world it seems one of  the most astounding occurrences of history that men should have witnessed in  sober earnest the sober antics of this zany  of scieuce.

Wealth made sacrifices of millions, too,  at those shrines, and men thought that  they were on the road to fortune on a way  made straight by the great Keeley motor.  They believed that if it once started  there could be no stopping the revolutions in earthly; affairs which would follow in i|s train. It was only a year or  two ago that the manager of the Manhattan Elevated /railroad inspected the  motor aq;d said that it was worth careful  examination. Officials of the Metropolitan Traction Company made a similar examination. Col. John Jacob Astor,  whose attention was attracted to the  apparatus by Keely/s friend, champion  and. agent, Mrs. Bloomfield Moore, seriously considered-the ad visibility of forming a syndicate to bring the invention before the world. None of the gentlemen  whom I have mentioned was finally convinced Keeley had discovered anything of  Are now prepared to issue  Drafts and Letters of Credit on  Dawson City, Yukon District.  value. It goes to show Keeley had the  faculty of securing the artention ol* the  ke<-.i. and practical man of affairs.  Ordnance experts have satin the Keeley  laboratory in Philadelphia and watched  experiments with a wonderful cannon,  which was in reality nothing but a big  popgun.  Experts last week dissected the building in which the charlatan carried on his  experiments. They laid barn the pipes  which conveyer! the compressed air from  a buried steel tank. They found that the  strange force which came at the twanging of a fiddle bow or the dropping of a  little water was after all only atmosphere  condensed. Thern was nothing new.  They found that the machines were operated oii principles discovered centuries  ago.  Yet the Keeley motor had been denounced years before that. The Herald  had nine years before showed the workings of Keeley models and pointed out that  the force which made the motor whirl  was compressed air. For all that Keeley  was able to organize a company, not an  officer of which had been taken into the  confidence of the inventor. Not a man  knew what'was supposed to make the  water "mote." Keeley died without revealing the means by which he attained his  results. Even the courts could not compel him to tell. '...������������"  Keeley's success lay in his faculty for  simulating earnestuess. He affected a  virtue, if he had it not. He acted as one  who believed he had made a great discovery. He was a consummate actor.  There was a stormy scene in his laboratory once when a man accused him of  using copper pipe from the transmitter  and defied Keeley to cut it. Mrs. Bloomfield Moore offered the inventor $1,000 if  he would cut the supposed wire and thus  fling back the aspersion of the critic.  Keeley would not listen to such a thing.  The spectators were hurried from the  room, and a few minutes later Keeley summoned two witnesses and cub the supposed copper pipe. Jt proved to be wire.  Now the pus-zle is to find when the change  took place, for there was no doubt iu the  world that the wire was copper' pipe not  five miuutes before: Yet through all this  .stormy scene Keeley boiled with righteous  indignation* aud scorn. Could it - have  been that he persuaded Keeley the inventor to belieye in Keeley the charlatan.  It .'almost seems incredible that one  should listen without laughing-at some  gf the Munchausen-like statements "made  by Keeley. It was the grave face, the  earnest-eyes the enthusiastic manner of  the man which carried conviction.  "Within six months," he said years ago,  "a train of cars may be run between here  and Philadelphia at the rate of a mile a  minute by taking the power out of so  much water as will rest in the palm of my  ���hand.. .W_-y,athei-ea!5 sufficient, power Jn  ���JvS p ck etsfoiK wff tefe$o4uu' ayte"a_ner*sotfas"t"  thatshe: vvill split-in���tvvQ./J ��� ���;... \  r%dyn4_i&;a^  make'clie-farmer" believe that it's an ealv;  thi-}jf��to:iind"u;u^  'resting?  ���0hly ky nlnhyoi\t"he "s^tqwrnVn"iin&  itinctf 'fiud *the"ne;>j!er ���"f-uljn"g nerve'.bf  Keeley" qould hlive'talked\sutj|i;^onHeiise4"  nonsense'with so sereiiefVa "face.

The other  proposed solution of the problem  was that  the status of the eastern Soudan should  be assimilated to that of a British crown  colony and that the country should  be  administered by officials directly responsible to the colonial office in the British  metropolis.   This   alternative-plan   had  many  advocates,   and   it would   be  undoubtedly better for the Soudanese to be  governed from London than from Cairo,  notwithstanding the greater distance of  the former city on the map. After mature  consideration of thesubjecthowever, in the  course of  which due heed   was paid to  the concurrent views of the general lord  Kitchener, the conqueror of the Khalifa,  and of lord Cromer., the fiscal redeemer of  Egypt, the Salisbury cabinet decided  to  institute in the Soudan an eutirely new  scheme   of   government,    the   principal  features of which  were defined in a proclamation lately issued to the inhabitants  of the recovered territory.    The cardinal  feature of the plan is the declaration that  the whole region south of Wady Haifa is,  hereafter,  to be governed  neither from  Cairo nor from London,  but exclusively  from Khartoum.    General lord Kitchener,  the governor,  is to   be   invested   'with  powers absolutely autocratic, with which  The Tremont Hotel  n/|AL0|.E & TREGILLUS  PnOPItlETOKS  Headqui-rters fop Miners and Prospectors  It Comprises an Area of Upwards1 pf a Million  Square Miles.  Oi" recent political iubidents, the most  striking and' the one most likely to draw  a sharp line of cleavage between the British political parties is the erection of a  huge principality on the ruins of the  Malidist empire.  Tlie territory which general lord Kitchener, by his victory at Oindlirman a.nd by  subsequent military operations^ may be  said to have reclaimed, actually Or prospectively, for civilization, stretches from  the lied sea to the western border of Dar-  fbur and from Wady Half.), which still  remaiuw the southern outpost of Egypt,  to the source of the Nile. This tract comprises an area of upward of 1,200,000  square miles, and, before the waste of life  resulting from the wars and misrule of  the Mahdi and his successor, Khalifa Abdullah, was computed to contain more  than 15,000,000 inhabitants. Under a wise  and firm government, which should give  encouragement to agriculture, it could be  made to support a population of 50,-  000,000.  Two modes of administration were, in  the first instance, suggested, each of  which was ultimately discarded. The  first of these was a recurrence to the system which had been followed throughout  the eastern Soudan up to the advent of  Mahdism, a system which placed the  country under a governor-genera), residing at Khartoum, who was not only  appointed by the khedive, but incessantly  received instructions, from the khedive's  ministers. .

He is authorized  to establish a benevolent despotism, the  only   form   of   government   which   the  Soudanese can comprehend, or for which,  at their present stage of political  evolution, they are suited.   They are Mohammedans   to  a man, and  a   fundamental  constituent   of   the   organic   law    proclaimed   to   them   is    the   promise   that  no attempt shall ever be made to meddle  with  any of the regulations, religious or  social,    that  are   prescribed   by  Islam.  Slavery alone will be forbidden,.so far a.s  (he open slave market is concerned, but  the slave trade is an institution  which  was rather tolerated than enjoined by the  Mohammedan.   The pledge? of course, implies,    and    the    implication   has   been  acknowledged by general Kitchener, that  the   practice of   polygamy   will be   permitted,   and   that  neither   Catholic nor  Prostestant missionaries will  be suffered  to enter tho country.   It is well known  that Gordon,  when governor-general  of  the   Soudan,    expressed   the   conviction  that no European rule could  be acceptable   to Mohammedans,  so   long as   the  traditional   plurality  of   wives   was inhibited.   Under the government which is  now to be founded, Mohammedanism is  not  merely tolerated, but is, practically,  made the religion of the State, since the  propagation of other creeds is forbidden.  Two Claimants.  A singular confusion of identity is said  to have arisen in connection with the late  baron Nathaniel de Rothschild's will,  which contains a bequest of twenty-five  thousand dollars to a Herbert Wilson. A  gentleman of that name, the ,son of a  Liverpool ship-owner, who happened, as  it is said, to have saved the baron from a  nasty fall at a Kempton Park race meeting, at once made a claim for the legacy,  only to be told that this was really intended for a Herbert Wilson of the Travelers'  Club. But the Liverpool Herbert Wilson  appears to have his doubts on the subject/'  and intends to demand the fullest proofs.  Vienna Restaurant  Baker street, between Josephine and  Hall streets, Nelson.

The Tribune will buy Old Rags  ACCEPTED THE PROPOSITION  Gray's Mills to be Operated by a Limited Liability Company.  The creditors ot* the estate of Thomas  W. Gray had a protracted meeting iu the  Hotel Hume last evening, when the unsecured creditors were asked to vote upon  the proposition to sell the estate, with the  exception ot the book debts, to Charles  Hillyer for $J 1,000.  John A. Turner presided at the ^meeting  and It. S. Lennie acted as secretary.  When the chairman had stated the object  for which the meeting had beeu called,  W. A. Macdonald entered an objection on  behalf of tho Merchants Bank of Halifax  and other creditors against the discussion  of the proposed sale, contending that  proper notice of the same had not b< en  given. He also referred to the manner in  which John Houston had taken possession  of and held the property, intimating that  he (Houston) was in collusion with the  parties who were trying to engineer the  deal for a sale.  S. S. Taylor, Q.C, who appeared on behalf of the intending purchaser, took up  this issue with Mr. Macdonald, and was  followed by the legal representatives of  the other creditors, ...with the result that  nearly every lawyer in Nelson was heard,  from before the decision was brought to  a close.  Matters were brought to a head by W.  J. Wilson, who moved that the offer of  Charles Hillyer for the purchase of the  assets at .$11,(300, exclusive of the book-  debts, be accepted. This was seconded  by H. D. Ashcroft.  W. A. Macdonald, as the representative  ot* the Kootenay Supply Company, moved  an amendment that an adjournment be  taken for two weeks, when the present  offer and any other offers to purchase  might be considered. This was seconded  by the representative of Braden Brothers.  The vote being taken upon the amendment showed that there were 24 votes in  favor and 52 against. The original motion  accepting the offer of alderman Hillyer  was then put and carried, the vote being  52 in favor and 17 against.  A motion was then carried authorising  the chairman to appoint a committee to  make the necessary arrangements to complete the purchase, and the chairman in  accordance with the same appointed as  such committee C. W. McAnn, Q. C, J. A.  Kirkpatrick and H. D. Ashcroft.  The assignee was authorized to make  proper application to the court for confirmation of the sale.  If the sale is made, the business will be  run by a limited liability company. The  operation of both mills means the employment of forty men and the disbursement  of $3000 a month in wages.

He  saw Dr. Hawkey and said he  wanted  to  ��et Mr. Codper in the hospital; but as Dr.  lawkey had no authority to admit him,.  he did not respond. Dr. Hawkey yesterday corroborated this statenieat; the  office books also show ah entry debiting  fttr. Curtis1 for services for that same date;  Mr. McKinnon, also, yesterday morning  would not deny this before witnestes,  when the matter was brought to his  memory and he was showed the entry in  the book.  Case 2���The man at the Victoria hotel:  I was called to see a man named Hazel-  wood at the Victoria hotel in December,  1897.    On entering the room the odor was  something horrible.   I enquired from the  patient how long he had been there.   He  replied, "two weeks,"   I remarked, surely  you have not been here all that time and  not had medical   attendance.   "No," he  said, "Dr..Forin has  been attending  me,  but has not called to see me for four or  five days.   I sent a person for him on two  occasions, but he was not at his office; the  message was left, but the doctor did not  come."   I asked the patient if he had discharged Dr.  Forin.   He answered, "No."  I then asked if Dr. Forin had said he was  not coming any more, and he again replied, "No."    Well,  I said,  you are still,  Dr. Form's patient, and I cannot take you,  as I left the room (and it was as bad as  any dissecting room that I ever was in).  The man had.not been   out  of bed   for  three or four days, and had not received  any attention, so one will not have to draw  on his imagination very much to judge  the state of affairs. Mrs. Goodwin met  me at the door and asked if the man could  not he taken to the hospital, and the only  reply I gave her was, "I will see what can  be done." I did not say I could not take  him because he was going to die. Notwithstanding tho fact that Mrs. Goodwin  is a very amiable and intellectual  lady, I have not any doubt the public  will give me credit for having as good a  memory as she. I went downstairs and  saw Air. Goodwin, the proprietor, and I  told him 1 could not take Air. l!n/.lewood,  as ho was a patient of Dr. Forin'-.; furthermore, it-was not fair to the patient,  in hi* critical condition, u> change his  physician, a.s what little chance there was  i'or the man's recovery would besaciiliced  by so doing. The physician in attendance was the proper person to carry out  the treatment, and that he had better  send for Dr. Forin. I can prove by Mr.  Rutherford, by Air. James AlcDonald and  others, taking Dr. Forin's own diagnosis,  that in this instance the disease came under that class which the hospital rules refuse admittance, therefore I did not refuse the man because I thought he was  going to die. I often admit such persons-*,  which the hospital records will show, and  they are open to the public for inspection.  I could not have admitted the man in  question to the hospital,' no matter how  much I so .desired, without breaking the  rules of the institution.  The whole trouble has arisen by Dr.  Forin making the charges ou old women's  gossip and second-hand information,  which in this case, the same as in all  others, does not stand the test. There is  too much of this kind of thing in Nelson,  and I sincerely ihope this will serve as a  good lesson for the future. Thanking  you, Mr. Editor, for thesoace you have  allowed me, I retire from further discussion on this subject.    Yours respectfully.  Geo. A. B. Hall.  NELSON, B. C.  KASLO, B. C.  SANDON, B. C.
