Array *<  THE BUILDING WAS A FIRE-TRAP  AND   THEEE   ARE   OTHER  '��yii  ���Qpial  Just   Such   Buildings   Used   for   Hotels  New York  City, so  Says  One   of  the Building Inspectors.  in  New York,  March IS.���The most complete list of the casualties at the Windsor  hotel shows fourteen persons killed, without attempting to speculate on the bodies  in the ruins; forty persons are  missing,  and fifty-two names are on  bhe list as  "injured, whose whereabouts are known."  Three lire engines and a hundred  policemen remained all night about the burning  building.    These engines puured six large  streams of  water on tlie flames,  wliich  would start up at intervals iu spite of the  firemen.   Little  explosions occurred frequently   from   escaping   gas,   the   pipes  having been smashed  all over the lower  part ofthe building, the only portion that  was left.   People were kept a block away  from the ruins, owing to the danger from  falling walls.   The wall on the rear side,  seven stories high, was still standing, but  it looked as though it might fall with the  first little breeze.   The wall on the Forty-  sevehth street side was about two stories  high and that in front on Fifth  avenue  about the same height.   These walls have  breaks  in them-and   their jagged  tops  heightened tbe hideous appearance of the  ruins   behind  them,  which   smoked and  steamed and emitted a bad stench.  Fifth   Avenue   and   Forty-sixth   and  ... Forty-seventh streets are impassable, being filled  with debris, and in many instances the flagstones were, broken by the  great crash of stone and brick.   Gangs of  men were kept all  night at   the ���ruins,  ready to  begin the search for bodies at  the earliest moment such work should be  possible.  Ib was said that it might be noon before  the continual outburst of flames would  cease and the heat leave the tangled debris. At about S o'clock men were set to  work on the Forty-sixth street side tearing down the threatening wall.  Edward Killen, a milkman, said today  that he saw the inception of the fire. He  ran into the hotel and tried to send in an  alarm by means of the hotel automatic  box, but it would not work. Then he ran  into the street, sending in an alarm there  and returned to the hotel. He said thab  a corporal and a private of the As tor battery ran in with him. They found the  fire burniug up through the elevator  shaft. He and the other two men got  down the hotel fire hose and played  streams on the main stairwav, which had  caught fire, and which they flooded with  .water. Their efforts were unavailing and  had to be given up when the flames came  up to them.  Charles Leibold, a bicycle policeman,  says.he rescued five persons from the fire.  lie got four-men- out from oue-.of. the  lower-floors and carried a fifth man down  .on his shoulders. He heard a woman on  thVfifth floor, but though hetriedto go  to her he was uuable to do so, and he had  get out of the burniug building.  Mrs. Alice W. Price, sister-in-law of  governor Candler of Georgia, who is at  the Bellevue hospital with a brokerrleg,  was reported doing well "this-morning.  Mrs. Sol Smith, wire'of the actor, who  was registered at the Windsor, was not  in the house at the time of the fire and is  safe and well.

We can touch fully a dozen hotels that  would go up as quickly as did  the   Windsor, but if we did say anything against  them wo  would  promptly be accused of  blackmail.   Then the laws also  take particular care of vested rights."  AN   INCIDENT.  One of the most remarkable incidents of  the fire was the cool courage displayed by  Edward P. Wells, who with his wife and  daughter were guests at the hotel. Wells,  vvho is past middle age, is a resident of  Jamestown, North Dakota.   He and his  wife      and     daughter       had      hardly  time      to      realize      that      something  had     gone     wrong   when     the    smoke  rolled   through   the  corridor and   their  escape was cut off in that direction.   The  window was their only hope and to jump  meant certain death.     In this emergency  Mr. Wells besought his wife and daughter to remain calm.   He first paid out the  fire-escape rope in.the room until he saw  it would reach the ground, and hauling it-  back he quickly but securely fastened it  around   his  daughter's   waist.   He then  lifted the girl to the window ledge and  slowly  allowed her to descend,  paying  out the rope at the end of which dangled  the almost inanimate body of his daughter.    The smoke and flames shot out  at  intervals  from the windows  belowi bub  -the passage of the girl was not retarded,  and in a few seconds-she had reached the  ground.     She   was  quickly taken   care  of     by     firemen,   and   the   rope    was  quickly hauled back by Mr.  Wells,   and  the same performance was gone through  with his wife, who had in the meanwhile  stood at his side at the window.   For the  third time 'Mr'.   Wells   pulled   the   rope  back; then made preparations for his own  descent.   He recognized that it would be  impossible for him to-go down  hand over  hand,   and    knowing    that   lacerations  would result if he slid down the  rope, he  first carefully tied his hands in   towels,  then   clambered out on the window sill  and   swung   clear.   He   shot  down   like  lightning,  but   there were ready   hands  below   to   break the fall, aud  when the  bandages   had   been   removed from   the  man's   bauds,  it was found that he had  not even blistered them.   A great shout  went up from the crowd as they saw Mr.  Wells   laud   safely.     He  asked   for   his  family, thanked the firemen and   others  for their assistance and disappeared.

Brady, inspector of commercial buildings, says: "Nob only was  the Windsor hotel unfit to be used for  hotel purposes, but there are at least a  dozen houses in the city where patrons  take equal risks of their lives. The lesson  of the Windsor hotel fire is now known,  and it simply illustrates the helplessness  of this department in reference to old  buildings. The Windsor was built under  the old law of 1871. It did-nob have a  fire-escape on it until 1885. The owners  in 18S2 were ordered to put on fire escapes,  but they did not comply with the order  for nearly three years. Again in 1892,  this department directed additional fire  escapes put on, but the order was not  obeyed until 1803. I do not consider the  Windsor hotel was a safe place for people j  A'second operation,   which the  physicians have decided to perform on-his holi-"  liens;   took  place this "morning.

London,  March 18.���The event of the  week  has   undoubtedly been  the debut  here of United States ambassador Choate  as a public speaker at the recent banquet  of the Association of Chambers of Commerce of the United Kingdom.    While the  speech is much admired as straight utterances from a self-respecting nation, there  is   disappointment   in- many   quarters.  David Christie Murray, novelist and edi-,  tor of a London morning paper, writes:  "The feeling still exists among millions  of minds in the United States that we are"  guided    by   our   selfish   interests,   and  in deference to this feeling the  newly  appointed   ambassador   in   his   maiden  speech threads warily along in brilliantly  expressed generalities about our friendship, and safeguards himself by bne or two  declarations which were unmistakably intended to prove that America's friendship  for England is in nowise of the self-sacrificing order.   Mr. Choate was as genial as  could be desired, butatthe same time was  most admirably dexterous.   It is a pity  that     he     should     feel    it     necessary  to  be so  dexterous; but   we   must   take  what we can get in the way of friendship  and  confidence  from   America,   and   be  thankful we can look forward to the time  when the Americans will universally recognize v the" basis   of  our desire for an  actual union binding with themselves."  At the same time Mr. Choate was being  feted by the chambers of commerce, the  commander-in-chief, general lord Wolse-  ley, wasspeakiug before the Institution of  Civil Engineers. He made very cordial  reference to the United States. He said :  "Our kindred, English-speaking nation  across the Atlantic! is embarked in re-establishing itself as what it was once before, a great naval power. I feel sure  every Englishman understands it is a  question of defence and will wish America  good luck in the effort. I believe it will  be of ihe greatest possible advantage  to Great Britain a, that - America  should re-occupy" its' former position; not second to "ourselves, but_ our  equal. The besb guarantees of peace to  the world would be those two great fleets'*  under one -flag,-" keeping the ^ ocean "high--  ways open to the world, no matter what  happened." ;���       l  The government's Automatic Couplings,  bill has created such an outcry that there  is little liklihood of its passing into law  this session. The president of the board  of trade has received an influential deputation of mine owners. They threaten to  withdraw their support from the government if the bill is-pressed: Sir Alfred  Hickman, Conservative,-member for west  division of Wolverhampton, who has  been aii iron-master since 1818, and who is  a member of the council of the Mining  Association of Great Britain and chairman of the South Staffordshire Railway  and - Canal Freighters Association,  declares that the number of shunting  accidents here compared very favorably  with American. The president of the  board of trade replied that the measure  met similar agitation in America when  first proposed, but the results there have  been excellent. However, he added,  he would consult with his col-  l^gu^s^n^i-!w_ofJJi^jlep_uJbation^s_r_e;  HEARD   IN   NELSON   TODAY.  Ore Receipts at Kaslso   for the Week  - ��� V About Up to the Weekly  Average.  Are  A slide on the Cody branch of the Kaslo  & Slocan railway on Thursday, interfered  with traffic to some extent, and prevented  the pre loaded along that part of the line  from being forwarded as usual.

Of these shipments, the Payne ore goes to  Omaha; the Rambler, Reco,*and half of  the Last Chance ore goes to Aurora, and  .the other half of the Last Chance ore to  .the Selby Smelting Works at San Francisco. The ore.from. the Jackson mines is  passed through the sampler of the Kootenay Ore Company at Kaslo, and is sent  thence to Helena, Montana.  The Property is all Right..  New Denver, March 18.���Assistant engineer Holden of,.the London & British  Columbia Goldfields, Limited, returned  yesterday from the Enterprise mine,  "bringing back a sack of samples. He has  little to say, but that-little was sufficient  .to indicate that everything was well. In  the raise being driven from the intermediate to the No. 5 tunnel, the men had  got through the barren streak and had  now fifteen inches of solid ore in the roof.  ���Down at' the No. 1 tunnel, Mr. Holden  found the vein in place with, the usual  amount of clean ore, which he admitted  was of exceedingly high grade. There is  a deal on for the purchase of the property  by the London & British Columbia Gold-  fields, aud word is expected any day now.  thab the deal has been closed. This information is public property here, and"  the . interested, parbies endorse it and  attempt no denial. -Interest in Ten Mile  properties has suddenly revived in couse-'  quence of the. favorable turn in the  mining situation.  .'".'- ;  Location of Mineral Claims. ^  ������ VThe. re-locatioii-of the following mineral  "claims was recorded today at the Nelson  office ."Potsdam, 5V miles north of Salmon  river, li miles wesc of the Nelson <fc Fort  Sheppard i*ailway, formerly- Vicboria���  "Gus Schwinke"; Beau Revoir, 21 miles  from Ymir, -formerly Wellington���Fred  Hamlin ; London Star, on Dundee mountain, formerly London���Charles North-  ridge and Fred Hamlin. =       "���  L  Two. Claims to be Worked.  O. Lund sent out a force of'men yesterday with tools and two-months' supply  of provisions to work on the Gold Crovvu  and Yorkshire. Hero, on Poormaii creek.  A cabin and blacksmith shop will be built  ab once, and ground sluicing to locate the  ledge will commence as"soon' as -a supply  of water is available.  quesb for further inquiry into the matter  before the bill was presented to the house  for sec-ond.reading. This tibtei-ance foreshadows tlijB indefinite 'postponement of  the bill. Even if it passed, it will not be  enforced until a suitable coupling is  found. In the meantime, Richard Pell,  secretary of the Railway Servant's Society, leaves Liverpool today fpr New  York on a three-week-.' tour, for 'the purpose of investigating the automatic Couplings and time-saving appliances used on  the American rail roil ds.  Up tp now the' reception given: queen  Victoria in the south of France has been  ail that could be desired. It waS a pretty  sight at Cimiez when the deputation of  fish-wives and market-Women from Nice  attended bo present the queen a bouquet  of choice flowers' and an address of welcome. The deputation was received by  her majesty's equerry, on behalf of the  queen, but the women insisted oh seeing  the queen herself", so they were allowed to  station themselves ab the gates of the  hotel. The queen on approaching them  ordered the carriages stopped and spoke a  few kind Words of thanks to the delighted  women, who brokeinto a warm demonstration of appreciation of her majesty's  graciousness.  Licensing Clubs.  _Gln.fl_.ow (Scotland) Rocord, March 3rd,]  The position of clubs under the licensing  laws was considered by the licensing  commission yesterday on lord Peel's draft  report, and it was determined to recommend that clubs should be registered instead of licensed, with power to the  licensing authority to inspect and control.  This question is a burning one with the  publican interest, it being urged that a  large proportion of working men's clubs  in Glasgow and the larger cities are simply unlicensed drinking houses. The  claim of the publican is, the club should  be licensed in the same way as public-,  houses. It becomes more and more evident from all that leaks out concerning  the proposals of the commission that  neither the publicans nor the temperance  party will be satisfied with the recom-.  mendations.  Working the Copper Clown.  Joseph Sturgeon has four men at work  on the Copper Clown mineral claim, seven  miles west of Nelson, on which he took a  _w_orking_bond_about_a_month-ago.���The  tuunel is now in about fifteen feet on the  vein, with a good showing Qf cupper ore.  SLOCAN   CONCENTRATES.  Several of the mines are letting out  men owing to the breaking up of the  roads.  The total shipments of ore fi*0j_a Silver-  ton this year aggregate dose to 1000 tons,  the oubpiib oit" five different mines.  Shipnients frOm the Payne are iii the  neighborhood of.2500 tons this* year, while  tlie Last Chance is about 1000 tons behind.  There two are Sl0can's heaviest exporters.  The owners of the NeepHwa, oh Ten  Milei had almost completed arrangements  this week for the Contract of 100 feet of  tunneling on tho new strike.,, but the probable change in the ownership of the Enterprise, knocked tlieseheme on the head.  There is every possibility of the Neepawa  changing hands in the near future;  W. Harrington of Sandon, came up  from the Get There Eli group on Teh Mile,  yesterday. He states the lessees are doing good work and are getting out large  quantities of ore, which will be shipped in  the spring.  On the Marion, ou Silver mountain, a  new ledge Was encountered Thursday  night, running diagonally across the vein  in the lower working. The tunnel is in  150 feet, With a small streak of clean ore  in the breast. The new ledge is expected  to develop into a big chamber of the shipping article. Three men are working on  the property, and more will be put on  when the snow goes.  George Doherty of New Denver has been  engaged by the Ivanhoe people to erect  their new gasoline hoisting engine, which  is to be used* on that property. He will  also run the machine for the first month  or so.  Records at the New Denver office: Assessment���Monitor No. 2, by A. R. Ping-  land, on March 15.

Procter of Nelson has sold to  James A. McDonald, barrister, of Rossland,- and Joseph B.Gosselin of Notre  DamedeStanbridge, Quebec,an undivided  one-fifth interest in the mineral claim, situated on Canyon creek, a tributary of  Crawford creek. The consideration is  $1500.  G. C- Spearing of Pilot Bay has also sold  to James A. McDonald for $500 an individual one-half interest in the Virginia Dare  and Gold Bug, located on Hooker creek.  ��� The city council had only a short session  on Wednesday evening, and did no business of any importance. Aldermen Kane,  Fawcett and Papworth were appointed a  committee to draft ways and means for  stopping the enroaehments of the small  creek,which on occasion injures property  in block of the addition to Kaslo proper.  The'members of the council betrayed  some anxiety because of the non-receipt  of an acknowledgement of their recommendation of alderman George T. Kane  for appointmenb as police and license commissioner, and directed the clerk to communicate _ with the provincial secretary  and ask if it had been received.  The assessor announced that his roll  had been returned to the clerk, and the  council.resolved that the court of revision  should set in the council chamber on the  24th day of April at10 o'clock in the forenoon.  It was resolved that the finance committee be requested to furnish tho board  at the first council meeting in April a  statement showing the receipts of the  municipality from the 1st of January to  the 31st of March inclusive, and the  amount of cash then standing to the  credit of the municipality.  ' Alderman Kane gave notice that he  would ask leave to introduce a by-law defining the limits within or without which  lauudries might be operated.  A meeting of the board of trade was  called for Wednesday evening, but a  quorum did not materialize aud the  formal meeting was necessarily postponed. The eight or ten members who  were present had an informal talk over  matters affecting the city and district.  There was an interchange of opinion concerning' the lead duties, and the new  clausein. the Inspection Act, permitting  miners" to-be employed^under ground only  eight hours out of twenty-four. The expenditure of the fuuds'voted the district  for public works was also ' discussed.  While there were no "funds appropriated  to particular works, it was understood  that the road up the south fork- of Kaslo  creek would receive consideration, as also  a trail on Hamill*creek. It was also elicited that it'was the intention of the honorable Mr. Cotton to visit the riding during  the working season. . '  O. G. Dennis Was out on Thursday, but  he is nob by any means a well, man. He  will need bime to get thoroughly recruited.  Messrs. Perry bf tho Noble Five, Mil-  burn of the Queen Bess, and Frank Wood-  of the Lust Chance,,eonstitiite the membership of a delegation which is in Kaslo",  on the way to the capital; where they will  interview the government upou various  matters, including the amendtiiout to the  act respecting the inspection of metalliferous mines which makes it illegal for  miners to work underground for a longer  period than eight hours out of twenty-  _foui\ The_m_anagur_s_eonteiid_that__the_  miners of the Slocan have never asked for  the change aud do not want it. They  contend, moreover, that there are not  more than two or three of tho mines  vvhich can stand the reduction of hours if  wages are to remain at present rates. The  managers met _vt Sandon yesterday, bub  the miners as a bocly have yet to be heard  from.  The eourse-of lectures on cooking began  on Thursday With a satisfactory attendance, which it is* hoped will largely jn,-,  ci'ease its 'the nature iind .scope pf the  ihf'oriiiation becomes kuowii an(l appreciated.  School inspector Burns wail in the city  on Thursday iind will inak0 the customary inspection of the schools.  Rumbrs are rife respecting impending  changes in the management and Ownership of the Kaslp Kooteuian, but it has  not been practicable to get any authoritative information upon the subject.  St. Patrick's day was very much in evidence on Kiislo's.streets and gi'een favors  almost universal, Lips to which the rich  brogue was entirely foreign were Irish  for the day. The ball at the auditorium  was well attended, and there was a general tone of hilarity.  R. T. Lowery came down from Sandon  on Friday afternoon. His second visit  has renewed the rumor, apparently well  defined, that he is to assume the management of the Kooteoaian in the immediate future.  The rotary was sent out over the Kaslo  & Slocan railway early on Friday evening iu front of two engines, and made  short work of the slide on the Cody  branch, so that the down train was able  to pull in on time.  The steamer Alberta, captain Howett,  took the International run this morning, and the latter will be hauled  out for repairs and refitting, as already  noted.  The rifles for the militia company arrived on Thursday. The company will  now take possession of the room assigned  to its use in the city hall, and recruiting  to fill up the ranks will be begun in  earnest.  MINES   TO   SHUT   DOWN.  It   is   Claimed   that it is   Unworkable  Low-Grade Districts Like That  of Ainsworth.  m  Among the first to object to the legislation which makes it illegal for miners to  be employed underground for more than  eight hours in tbe twenty-four are the  miners   who are   employed   in   the low-  grade mines around Ainsworth.   To them  the   new .legislation   means   the  taking  away of their present employment, and  to their employers its enforcement means  the stopping of all development work.  The wages in the Ainsworth camp have  been $:j for a ten-hour day, and the arrangement   was  satisfactory  to   miners  and  mine owners alike.     Among other  properties    working    was    the    Tariff,  which is being developed under a lease  and bond by Frank A. Heap.    The working force at the mine  was twenty men,  and although wages paid were but $3 per "  day and the mine worked upon a ten-hour  shift, there was no complaint, because in *  all   exceptional   cases   where the   work  required was unusually hard or required  under   unfavorable   conditions,   shorter '  hours  aud   increased pay   were  always  arranged for between the men   and the  operator  of   the   property.    When   Mr.  Heap's attention was called to the law, he  called the men togetherand informed them  of the condition of affairs.   He explained  that as there was a penalty for employing men longer than the eight hours, the  time  of the shift would have to be cut  down, and as the ore in the Tariff was  low grade he would  be obliged to pay  them by the hour on a basis of $3 for ten  hours.   The men saw the reasonableness  of this, but'explained that they could not  maintain themselves on less than $3  a  day, and that they would not work for  less.    Mr. Heap has since wired'the minister of mines to know whether the legislation  will  be enforced, and  pending a reply, the men are still at work under the  old conditions.   Should the reply be that  the legislation is to be enforced, it will  mean the closing down of the Tariff and  other mines at Ainsworth.  Fighting the Eight-Hour Law.  Many of the'mine'owners of the Slocan  are up in arms against the new provincial  law of an eight-hour day for all men  working underground, and at a meeting  in Sandon this week, sent down a memorial to Victoria asking relief from its operations. At present the men work ten  Hours a day and are paid $3.50, or at the  rate of 35 cents au hour. The owners are  willing to pay the men at the _rate of 35  cents an hour, which would make wages  $2.80 per day; but the miners refuse to  accept such a low remuneration. Failing  relief." the,.threa*5 is. made, to close down ,  the mines, as tlie owners contend they  caunot'afford.to have three shifts per day  employed at $3.50.�� The ,,mine owners  claim it would compel the erection of  larger living quarters and additional clerical and surface help. '    -_ -   ' -  '  -   . The Judges are Kind.  [Vancouver Province, JMnrch 15Lli.  ,-  The   supreme court-judges of British  Columbia have on many occasions shown  themselves to be gentlemen of great tact  and "kindness.   Yesterday there was one  more   proof   of this   furnished Jn   Vancouver.    A learned judge was trying a  caso and a learned Q. C���one of the real  Q.  C.'s,  not one of "the imitations���was "  examining a witness. " Back near the bar  a   red-headed   young   man    had   fallen  asleep.    It was not-a noisy, snoring sleep,'  but the gentle slumber, as it might be, of  a babe iu its mother's arms.   The learned  judge   was touched, by' the picture and  Jeaniug-Iorward-he stopped^theQ. C ^-1���  must ask you," he said, "to conduct your  examination in a lower tone of voice. I  am afraid you will awaken that young  man." It is little things like this that  endear the judiciary to the public, and if  the red-headed slumberer'is ever sent  down for a term by the learned judge, as  he probably will be some day, there will  be no rancour in his heart for he knows  that the judge is kind.  How the Heart, Beats at Night.: *  The main use bt the< coverings at nights-  is to give the body "t-he jvariuth tifatis.  Ibst by reduced clrcijlation of tlie blood? "  When the body lies dov>*h it iV the intention of nature, that it should be relieved  tehipOi'arily of its regul-u* wOf-k. So ihkb  organ make's ten stroke a minute less,  than when the body is in an upright posture. This means (iOO strokes iii sixty  minutes. TherefWe, in tlie 6i_fht hours  that a.man usually Spends in taking his  night's rest the heart is saved 5000 strokes.  As it pumps six 6\in��e.s of blood with each  stroke, it lifts 30,000 ounces less of blood  iii the night's session than it wOuld during  the day, wheu a man is usually in an upright position. Now, the body is dependent for its warmth on the vigor of the  circulation, and as the blood flows so  much more slowly through the veins  when one is lying down the warmth lost  in bhe reduced circulation must be supplied by extra coverings.  New Denver Siftihgs.  Rumors of all kinds are in the air regarding the probable resumption of work  on the Mountain Chief aud California  mines. It will be some months yet ere  anything ie done on the latter, owing to  tlie depth of the snow on the mountains.  T.

Fikst Yeaii, No. 01  .......Seventh Yeak, No. 18  New Westminster was the first municipality in the province to engage in commercial electric lighting. That the venture has been a financial success is not at  allclear. At first, the object sought was  the supplying "light at cost. This was  found to be a mistake. The Tribune is  not aware whether or not a change has  been made in that direction. Last year  the fire that destroyed the business portion of the town destroyed a, portion of  the electric lighting plant, and for a time  cut; down the revenue. But these are not  points that need to be dwelt on in the consideration of the question of municipal ownership of electric lighting  plants. Nelson now owns an electric  lighting plant and has a monopoly of the  business. The questions to be considered  are : First. To make the system efficient.  Second. To make it pay. The plknt is  ^operated by water power; but it has been  found ^y experience that the flow of  waterin Cotton woodSmith creek is variable,and that in order to maintain equable Vpower: fully twice the quantity of  water Vrequire^  must be 'provi^  be obtained/^  ���_��������� ���������"���_-; --..-.���V-'. ���"- i"*it*0^.!_.f.u..>��,;'-.*IsA-..*,��Aft"Vj-�� ���'"*  to Cottonwood Smithjake.thafcsnpw-flow;  intq Salmon"river��^  maide";. in Wthis-��directibnr^and.Vtheswo��rli*  should vbe^eo^pleted^as.sop^  C-ible/^IFMw^  be considered is dynamo capacity.

The fight over the amendment to the liquor license bylaw is going merrily forwards It nowIoOksisifaldermanFletchef's  policy of saloon expansion will bring the  reform forces of the new council into  direct conflict with the women's branch  of the reform movement. The women  are up in arms against the insinuations of  the members of the city council that the  residents of the "West ward demanded increased saloon facilities as their inherent  right, and as a body they will make a  fight before the license commissioners  against the granting of any additional  saloon licenses.  Advices from Victoria are that James  Dunsmuir and William Mackenzie and  Donald Mann are all implicated either iu  the protest that was filed against Hon. J.  Fred Hume's election or the one that was  too late to be filed. Gordon Hunter of  Victoria represents the Dunsmuir end of  the fight and W. A. Macdonald of Nelson,  through his business agent at Victoria,  was to have represented the Mackenzie-  Mann end. If the petition is successful,  Mr, Hume will probably not offer for reelection, as he is becoming very "sore'  over these efforts to oust him. In that  event a straight party fight is the plan of  the local leaders, W. A. Macdonald to  make the race as a Conservative and W.  A. Galliher as a Liberal. They would be  snowed under, as the people of this riding  jhave little use for either.of them.. .

CURRENT RATE OF INTEREST PAID  PETER   MITCHELL  Although   a  Public   Life  Politician, Left  Clean Handed.  On Thursday The-Tribune published  reminiscences of Peter Mitchell regarding  the way in which confederation was  brought about, and today another installment of-his experiences as a politician are  given:  Mr. Mitchell refers with pride to the  fact that he made his portfolio (marine  and fisheries) useful and valuable, working hard and effectually, while he remained minister, and introducing the  system of lights which made the navigation of our lakes and rivers safe. The  Canadian Pacific railway scandal caused  the downfall of the government.  "It was said that T became a Tory to  enter the coalition government. Nothing  of tlie sort. I was a Liberal, au Independent Liberal���a radical, in short. But I  remained loyal to the coalition principle.  At the same time, while I did not Hle-  nouuee Macdonald in connection with the  Canadian Pacific railway deal, I did not  support him, and for this he never forgave me. I stood aloof from that scandal. No man can say that 1 was besmirched then. Of course, I made enemies,  1 and while the titles,were Hying about 1  was =,forgotten, remaining simple Peter  Mitchell. 1 never asked for favors, but  sir John  knifed  me  because I l_.iddo._e  :what he could not do.   By carrying coil-  federation,! have proved myself to.be"the  strongest man iii the country."--  Mr.: "Mitchell    remained" a member of  "parliament during the Mackenzie regime.  .It was their-that Widow Murphy's cow  rose to the dignity of a__-eve.it*-, occupying  Hansard, bulking monstrously before the  affrighted..visiou of= the ministers and  threatening to wreck government.  ' The Widow-Murphy had. a little farm  in the neighborhood of Barnaby's "river,  in thed_i,ower Provinces, close..to the'line  of the Intercolonial.  :.The latter was sup-  equld  tepee  ;tr|)yed  *j3_lbd,ue& .. p _. _ ���._ ,n n. ^ o n,_  ."�� ���^Kwas'r.eall.'y the cijo^faifd" Yibt- tile cpw, :  -*�� but ..hi s Sb;rcy^k��B^w,s ih &��i nqi d"ehi .as.

The minister said he  Would not entertain,it.  "Sou won't," said Mr. Mitchell doggedly.  �����I won't,' said fche minister.  "Then I'll take it out Of your hide. I'll  show you that when Peter Mitchell takes  up a case he never drops it till he wins his  point."  What happened? Mr. Mitchell blocked  the business of the country. He made  speeches by the hour*. When it came to  committee of supply lie refused to allow  the most trifling item to pass. The ministers were in despair. Then there came  the minion-dollar item for the militia.  Mr. Mitchell made an hour speech against  ir,. The minister of militia, the Hon. Mr.  Vail, came over to the speaker and asked  Mm, in the name of heaven, what he  meant? Were they not good friends?  Was he going to destroy the militia service? Was he going to make chaos of the  public business? Don't you know what  I'm doing? Mr. Mitchell asked. Oh.no;  he knew nothing about the case. Well,  it was Widow Murphy's cow. That cow  must be paid for. The session would last'  till-July but that cow would be paid for.  He had promised to take it out of the  Mackenzie's hide, and he rather thought  he was doing it. "I'll fix that cow business," said the minister desperately.  There was a ministerial consultation.  Mr. Vail returned. "The cow was paid  for in the morning." Mr. Mitchell rose to  a great height, announced the triumph to  the house, and begged to apologize i'or  the time he had taken up in the cause of  justice; That ended the matter, but  "Hansard" has the record of Widow Murphy's cow.  Mr. Mitchell formed iip the Third Party  in parliament, which was mockingly said  to be contained under his own hat. It is  the opinion of the old veteran that there  is no room i'or a third party in our system.  "I tried it and it did not succeed. We  can only have two parties.   It is perhaps  Are now prepared to issue  Drafts and Letters of Credit on  Dawson City, Yukon District.  a pity, but there would be intolerable  confusion with a third party. I never  was plastic, you know ; I had my own  opinions and I suppose I suffered for  them."  "Is there not danger, through the impossibility of forming an independent  party, of the slavery of the party machine? A man, whatever he feel.",- must  vote with his party or be lost."  " "That is a difficulty, no doubt, but he  need not sacrifice his conscience; he can  make protest; but he will not get place Or  power."  Mr. Mitchell is inclined to think that  the men nowadays are not quite so big  (intellectually) as the men of the early  Confederation, times. The ability of sir  John Macdonald, sir Charles Tupper, sir  Hector Langevin, sir George Cartier,  William Macdougall, George Brown and  others reached a high point. Mackenzie,  too, was an exceedingly able man. The  men of today, seemed to him to be of  smaller calibre. Nor was parliamentary  debating equal to what it was iu his  younger days.  The Hon. Peter is alive to what is going  on in the outside world, and he hastened  upou the arrival of general Agoneillo, to  present him with a copy of the Canadian  constitution���offering at the same time,  to act as intermediary between the Philippines and the American government, in  case there was possibility of an amicable  settlement. This "Sir Peter" strongly  recommended, poiuting out that the American people were the most progressive  in the world, and that frieudly relations  with them would be in the best interests  of the Philippines. He reminded general  Agoneillo that while it might seem ridiculous for him to offer his good offices in this  connection, he was sneered at thirty-three  years ago when he took the stand he did  in connection with Confederation���every  one saying that he would never carry it.  but those who sneered lived to confess  that the work he did then built up the  Dominion. "Having, then, general, some  experience in nation-building, you can  command me in case I can ever be of ser  vice to your cause."  thinks this was rather  stands ready to*give the Filipinos pointers  upon constitution-making when the propitious moment arrives. '��� --- ,  -The position,; he thinks, is perfectly  congruous, seeing' that wher.eas before  confederation we had. an undeveloped  country wliich had no markets, and which  Capital,  Reserve  Paid Up  $2,000,000  1,200,000  HEAD OFFICE, TORONTO  D.

In  1855 a man led his wife with a halter  round her waist into Derby market-place  and offered her for sale, but all he could  get for her was eighteen pence and a quart  of ale. .  In 1873 a husband left his home and  creditors in Belper for the liberty of  America. The week after his flight all  his goods were put up for auction to satisfy his debts. His wife claimed part of  the money, and this being refused, she in-  sistedipn being offered for sale as part of  her husband's assets. There was no sale,  however, for "Lot 29."  In even more recent days wife sales  were common, and are even being effected  in this present year of grace. In 1882  John Wilson, a collier of Alfreton, Derbyshire, sold his wife in a public house for  fourpence. Sheffield knife-grinders have  long been noted for their transactions in  the wife trade. Within quite recent  times many a Sheffield wife has been sold  by her husband for a gallon of beer,  which has been drunk on the spot. Sometimes these sales assume a more formal  aspect.  In 1887, in the Sheffield county court, a  man admitted that he had bought another :  man's wife for 5..   The agreement ran:  "At the Royal Oak, Sheffield, I, Abraham Boothroyd, agree to sell my wife,  Clara, to William Hall, both of Sheffield,  for the sum of 5s."  Most of these discreditable "deals" es-  The Tremont Hotel  cflpe notice, but a case has come to light  where a man agreed to sell his wife to a  collier, and the trio, with the woman's  father nnd mother and two family friends,  assembled to arrange term18.  Thirty shillings was the price finally  agreed on, and rhis was the bill of sale:  "Mr.   to have  my wife, Elizabeth   , free from me forever to do as she has  a mind, this day, December 11th, 1893."  Pour years ago, at Leeds, a man charged  with bigamy pleaded that, as he had sold  his wife for 3s Od to another man, he  could marry again legally. Eighteen  months' imprisonment was what he got.  A police court case in 1896, at Doncaster,  revealed the fact that John Tart sold his  wile to Enoch Childs, on the understanding that the latter reared the vendor's  four children. This is how the contract  read:  "New Conisborough, March 28, 1S9G.���I  Enoch Childs, is quite willing to .take  your wife and children as mine, that is  your wife Ellen Tart, and Sarah, John,-'  Henry, and ElizH.���Signed Ellen Tart,  Enoch Valentiue Childs."  In a Durham court in 1891 t transpired  that a man named Shaw sold his daughter, a girl of sixteen, to a collier called  Cndman.   The agreement was explicit:  "I give my daughter into the care of  your hands to feed and clothe her in a  proper manner. If not satisfied in one  month return my daughter same as she  came to work for her living. I give you  my daughter, I sell you mv daughter for  Is.���Yours truly," B. Shaw."  Many a wife is at present sold in the  East-end of London, as well as in Yorkshire, for a quart of beer or an ounce of  thick twist. It is the poor man's method  of divorce, and such is popular ignorance  that there are scores of people who  imagine that selling a wife is as legal a  separation as a decree nisi pronounced by  a bewigged and berobed judge.

Many people say that high society is  nothing but a marriage market, and that  scheming mammas sell their daughters as  wives to the men who can offer the  greatest wealth and finest title.  But very few people are aware that  wives are literally sold today in England.  It is.not the husband, however, who buys  them, but sells them to get rid of them.  A very common error of the vulgar is  that a man by selling his wife releases  himself from the marriage contract as  surely as if he were legally divorced.  In March, 1796, the Tinies announced  the sale of a wife at Sheffield for sixpence.  A short time afterwards the same journal  calmly stated that "The pride of wives  has risen in Smithfield market from half  a guinea to three guineas aud a half!"  In 1S03 a man led his wife, by a halter  round her neck, into the cattle market at  Sheffield and sold her for a guinea, the  purchaser leading away the woman to his  home..  In 1820 a man named Brbuchet hired a  cattle:pen in the Canterbury market,  placed his wife in it, and ultimately sold  her for 5s; Then wives began to increase  ii_ value, for soon afterwards.one was sold  for iili).  =Meated^with=Not=Aip  Lighted by Electricity  Largo  cohifortabld  bedrooms and   first-class  dining  room;   Sample rooms Mi* coii.mcrcial men.

The clerks employed in the different  stores in Nelson are taking preliminary  steps to induce their employers to renew  the early closing movemeut, which was  of such advantage to them last summer,  and which was strictly adhered to by the  leading business firms���and which drove  so much business away from Nelson.  A Question of Precedence Only.  S. S. Taylor, Q.  C,  says that the appearance of   himself  aud   several  other  Dominion queen's counsellors in their silk  at the recent session of the  full court in  Victoria was not intended as any slight  upon the legislation of attorney-general  Martin appointing provincial Q. C's.   The  circumstance that the province of British  Columbia has decided to exercise its right  to appoint queen's counsellors in ho way  affects those who have received, similar  patents from the Dominion government.  It will not prevent any Dominion queen's,  counsellor from wearing the silk in the  provincial courts or any other place.    It  will simply provide that in the provincial  courts the   provincial   Q.  C's.  will  take  precedence over   the  appointees   of  the  Dominion..  It will mean that, the provincial - queen!s. counsellor will have the,  honor ot being heard first in.any matter  in which there is any question as to who  has a right.to speak first.   In.the supreme,  court of- Canada, the exchequer court and  the admiralty court the positions will be  reversed, and. the Dominion queen's counsellors -will  take: precedence.    Appoint-,  ments   as. provincial queen's counsellors  will merely'be regarded as promotions in.  * the profession. ' 3 '     '-  Tlie-Stabbing Killed Him.
