 LOCAL AND MINING NEWS FROM  ADJACENT   TOWNS   AND   CAMPS.  Spec al to The Tribune.  RogSLAND, May 13.���The work of transforming the Trail railroad into a broad  gauge is about half completed. The rails  are laid up to the bridge work at the  main switchback. It will be finished to  Rossland by J une 1 st or soon after.  The Centre Star is putting out ore now.  So far the Trail smelter is short, of ore  and has barely enough for one blast.  Le Roi stock is ��10 5s. which is a valuation of $10,200,000 on the mine. The  management claims it can pay $150,000 a  month. A body of ore fifty feet wide  and averaging $00 is reported on the 800-  foot level. Certainly the ore is running  higher in gold than'' before. The great  boom in Republic stocks have been of  advantage to Spokane in that quite a few  men interested both in Trail Creek and  Republic have now made Spokane their  headquarters. Rambler-Cariboo stock is  booming.on the local exchange. Whether  this is due to the appearance of the mine  or the appearance of some of the chief  OAvners is not known here.  Very good authority gives out that  Grand Forks has been successful in preventing the C. P. R. from giving the town  the go-by.

Rhodes is Playing the Game.  Special to The Tribune.  London, May 13.���The Rhodes interests are again engineering an agitation in  England for the oA'erthroAv of the Transvaal'', republic. Secrecy is the very essence of most conspiracies; but it  made more ��disastrous and ludicrous still  the fiasco of the Jameson raid. On  that account tlie mining magnates  have taken the British public  into their confidence this time.  It is the inethod of Cecil Rhodes to come  to the British government Avith a petition, ancl, .while it is under consideration,  to inspire anonymous alternative threats  iu as many papers as he can if the goA'ernment dares to deny him. It is not statesmanship, nor particularly clever; but it  is Rhode's Avay. ,...*. c   -  Rough on the   Hindoos,  Special to The Tribune.  ' Victoria.

The men got practically  all they struck for.  Associated Press.  London, May 13.���Lord Rosebery's  speech, before the London Liberal Club,  in which he expressed a wish for a. revival of the old Liberal spirit, has proved  an apple of discord of the first order. It  has elicited a virulent reply from Sir William Vernon Harcourt, in a speech before  fche Devonshire Club, which has been the  political sensation of the week. Sir William's speech bore witness to tlie bitterness of the due.I for the leadership of the  Liberal party betAveen himself and Lord  Rosebery, and to the pent up personal  feeling of the speaker against Lord Rosebery, avIio was responsible for his temporary elfacement.  The Liberal organs have taken up fche  cudgels in behalf of lord Rosebery and  talk to Harcourt A'ery straight. Tlie  speaker calls his interpretation of lord  Rosebery's Avords: "A most absurd''alid  malicious falsification of his meaning, and  the first example in recent years of "downright misrepresentation." The British  Weekly says: "Harcourt's words are  grossly unjust and. slanderous, aud only  to be accounted for by a rancor ofehat-  red amounting almost to madness."  Other mouthpieces of the Liberal party  insist that lord Rosebery, in urging a re-'  .turn of the Liberalism of 1SSG, did* not  mean a change of programme but a return to party discipline in the Halcyon  days of Liberalism.  Sir William Harcourt today announced  that he Avill speak to his constituents; on  May 24th. His utterances are aAvaited  with the keenest interest, and another  speech in his best fighting style is expected. Meanwhile the Conservative  press interprets Rosebery as Harcourt  does, and in some quarters the ppinioh*-is  expressed that Rosebery's utterances are  nothing less than a direct bid to Joseph  Chamberlain, and a prelude to Rosebery  identifying himself Avith the Liberal-  Unionists.        To Search for Andree.  Special to The Tribune.  Neav York, Tlie Times   special   from  'Rome' says':  The young, duke of Abruces,'  king ��� Humbert's   nepheAV,   has taken  a  tearful  faroAA'oll of his   royal - relatives  and started- A'ia NorAvay ' for the  polar  regions.1; He proposes- to-make straight  for Fran/, Josef Land'in.a "specially pre:'  pared" steamship, the Star of Italy, penetrate as far north as possible,.and  Avhen  frozenriu to make a rush for-the pole Avith  sleighs.     He promised 'his friends to be,  back  in  Rome* on June  1st,   1900, Avith  relics of Andree.  The duke is not rich as royal princes  go, and he had considerable trouble in  raising funds for the enterprise. He first  proposed to sell part of his landed property, but the king objected. The king  ami princes of the blood then made a  Avhip round, and although times are  rather hard in Italy they managed to  raise $200,000.

Eclair belieA'es that France Avill give the:  required guarantee and that the Kaiser  Avill also promise on behalf of Germany.  As the time set for the holding of the  Nelson assize court approaches, the curiosity of the public increases a.s to what  disposition Will bcniade of the charge of  murder wliich hangs ewer the head of the  Italian boy Antonio Bruno.  In August last an Italian navvy,  named Guisippe Poerio, Avas murdered on  the grade of the Crow's Nest railway,  some three miles this side of the town of  Moyie. The boy Bruno was the last  person seen in the murdered man's ���'company, and he Avas arrested and charged  with the crime. The case first came to  trial before Mr. justice Irving at the last  assizes. It resulted in a disagreement on  the part of the jurors. The case was re-  vie-Aved before a second-jury Avith a like  result, since Avhieh time Bruno has been  confined in the local jail aAvaiting the decision of the croAvn "officers as to Avhether  the charge against him should be further  proceeded Avith or the prisoner be allowed  his liberty.  'Upon the two occasions  AA'hen  Bruno  Avas tried for his life, the croAA'ii eudeaAdored to secure a conviction upon a chain  of    circumstantial   eA'idence   Avhieh   its  officers Avere able  to  Ave'ave  around  the  prisoner.    It Avas s1ioav.ivthat Bruno aiid  Poerio   left their   raihvay   construction  camp together on  the  Sunday  morning  when the murder Avas supposed  to have  been committed/  Their destination Avas  'another raihvay camp, and   their objeet  Avas to get rectified a .mistake wliich had  been"made.in a  time-check  of Poerio's.  The next that Avas  knoAvn   of the"'-men's  nioA'ements   was   the   re-appearance   of  Bruno at his oaa'ii camp about six o'clock  the same eA**ening.    The croAvn produced  Avitnesses to sIioav that .-when Bruno returned he appeared-agitated, and gaA'e an  unsatisfactory account, as  to .Avhat had  become of Poerio.    It Avas further shown  that Bruno remained  in   camp   for  tAvo  days foIloAving, and on the afternoon of  Tuesday ho packed up Poerio's belongings  and started out for Kuskonook as fast as  he could travel;     This  same  afternoon  Poerio's body Avas discovered on the road  about-two miles from the camp in a state  of general decomposition, Avith-the face  and head crushed in.    Stress Avas also laid  upon   the   fact   that when   Bruno Avas  arrested he had upon him the  identical*  time-check Avhieh he 'said* Poerio started"  out to have rectified Allien * the   tAvo left  the camp on tlie Sunday morning.   =   ^   ..  .R. M. Macdonald, avIio Avas-charged by  the court Avith  the  defence  of the prisoner, made the most of a case AvJiich appeared hopeless.    He  Avas forced to rely  almost Avholly  upon  the  prisoner's own  story.    Ifc Avas that Avhen lie started out  Avith   Poerio  lie   felt   sick.    When, two  miles from  camp   hc   and   Poerio met a  man,   whom  Bruno knew,  named Luigi  Dei, and another Italian whom neither of  them  knew.    After  meeting  these men  Bruno decided that   he  Avas boo sick to  continue  the journey,   and  told  Poerio  that he  would  return   to  camp.    As he  AA'as going  aAvay  Luigi   Dei  gave Bruno  his coat and   asked   him to keep it until  he   should    return.      Instead   of   going  straight to his  camp  Bruno   went on to  the engineer's  camp  to  cash  one of his  tinie-chec'ks, and  reached  liis own camp  about 6 o'clock  in  tlie  eA'cnhig,    Bruno  _sMcLthat 1 ifa remailli*tLin_Mn^  to work, till Tuesday! Avheii the stranger  Avhom he had left Avith Poerio and Luigi  Dei passed through the camp and told  liiin tliat Poerio had gone oil to Nelson  and to take his belongings and meet hini  there. He accordingly gathered up all  bhe papers belonging to Poerio, including  the time-cheek in question, Avhieh he said  he found in the pocket of a pair of trousers, aiid AVas on his way to Nelson when  arrested.  When arrested Bruno was Avearing the  coat which he said belonged to Poerio,  and iii the coat \\?ore "papers, made out hi  tlie name of Luigi Dei. Naturally the  test of the whole of Bruno's evidence  hinged upon whether there was any such  person as Luigi Dei, and whether he avjis  in the A'iciivity when Bruno said he left  him in company with Poernio, When  the case came to trial the officers of the  croAvn Avere unable to secure any trace of  any such person in any of tile construction camps along the Crow's Nest rait-  way, ��nd the suspicion Avas general that  Luigi Dei A\*as a myth.  Since tlie trial, hoAvever, some clever  work has been done by the officers of fche  drown and through the assistance of the  British consul at Florence, Italy, and the  police departments of tAvo Italian towns,  it has been ascertained beyond any question that Luigi Dei did exist, and that  about the time the murder was committed lie Avas employed on .the construction  of the Crow's Nest Pass railway. From  some of the papers found in the coat  which Bruno said belonged to Poerio, it  Avas found that a remittance of money  had been made through a. Philadelphia  bank to a woman in Quaratn, in  the ' province: 7 of' :.: Arcy;/,o,y. V.. Italy.;.  The nearest .British" consul :*to  Quarata      is*   -.stationed ... at..   Florence,  and this official Avas communicated Avith  in the hope that some clue could be obtained. The British consul at Florence  interested the Italian police. The result  of their researches established that the  woman in Italy was the wife of Luigi  Dei, that her husband had been employed  on the Crow'.-, Xcst construction, and that  since the date of the murder she had not  received any tidings as to his whereabouts. The Italian officers forwarded to  thc-Brili.-ih ron.-ul a photograph of Luigi  Dei, a specimen of his handwriting, and  a letter addre.x-ed to him at MacLeod by  his Avifo, which had been returned to Italy  through tho dead letter ofiice at Ottawa.  That Luigi Dei was not a myth was therefore established, though his whereabouts  is'���. unknown, and that he is the man  mixed up by Bruno in the murder of  Poerio i.-, equally certain, as the photograph was instantly recognized by Bruno  when it was shown to him in tlie jail. In  the searching out of the case there has  been "a lot of good work done, even  though it has not resulted in the conviction of anyone of the crime.  LOCAL   NEWS   AND   GOSSIP.  John F.

New Denver, May 13.���Private ad-  A*iees received last eA**ening from London  testify to the satisfaction felt there at',  the purchase of the Enterprise mine by  the London & British Columbia Gold-  fields ancl the .Ncav Zealand Minerals  Company. Tlie Enterprise is regarded  as a .valuable property and will proA'e an  important addition to the British Columbia market in London. So much so, indeed, that these single mine companies do  much to attract and hold the attention  of iiiA-cstors. The Enterprise, ib is  thought, may some day proA-e a more  profitable property even than the Payne.  The mine Avas sold to the present holders  on a strictly cash basis, the price, as  giAren out in London, is .��100,000  The reports of the engineers who examined the property on behalf of the purchasers luwe been made public in London.  They state that of the 1500 tons of ore  shipped from the mine, the smelter returns ran from 137 to 220 ounces silver  and 18 to 22 per cent lead to the ton.  With the ordinary methods of Avork, the  annual output is placed at 10,000 tons,  which can be maintained for some years.  The net profit is figured at ��11 per ton,  ���pr ��110,000 a "year. The development of  the mine is spoken of as extensive.  ATHABASCA   MINE'S   RECORD.  At the. first annual meeting of the  British Columbia and NeAV Find Gold-  fields Corporation, Limited, Avhieh was  held in London on April 25th, Arthur  Fell, the chairman of the board of  directors, Avho retired was re-elected.  In his .report, the chairman gave some  interesting information concerning the  Athabasca property which'.the' company  is operating. Concerning the company's  milling operations since October last he  said : "In October, Avhieh Avas a broken  month, it crushed 400 tons, of the value  of $1901 or $-1.90 per ton. That Ave considered disappointing. The next month's  crushing Avas 728 tons, Avhicli produced  $7500 or an an average of $10.39 per ton.  In December it crushed 695 tons, AA'hich  produced $0-100, of $9.22 per ton. In  January it crushed 713 tons, Avhieh produced $5190, or $7.29 per ton. In February the manager pursued a different  method. The ore Avas getting so very  much richer that he put more frue  A'annors on, and ran the battery more  slowly. Four hundred and twenty-four  tons were crushed, and produced $7988,-  or $18.93 per ton. In March 465 tons  were crushed, Avhieh produced $9050, .or  over $20.75 per ton.  " "Although Ave are only getting 20.75  ciwt. per ton the ore is really running  someAvhereaboub tAvo- ounces, and' it is  manifest-that the balance is. lost in the  tailings. We have had specimens taken  CA'ery day for a month, and these haA'e  been shipped to ^Vancouver ' where they  Avi 11 be tested Avith cyanide, and avc are  aAvaiting* the opinions of experts-there  as to Avhetlicr the cyanide plant would  be the best method of extracting the one  ounce lost in the.tailings.

Concerning   the   great   difference  between the assay values of the Athabasca  ledge and the  results  at  the company's  mill the chairman said:    "Of course, with-  the A*ein  ten   inches   Avide,  you have to  take out three times that Avidth, so that,  roughly speaking, the ore sent to the mill-  is about two ounces to the ton.

The only reference made by the chair-  mail to the deal AVhich Avas then pending  of the bonding of the Dandy and other  groups of properties on Toad mountain,  wliich has since been carried through,  was contained in the foIloAving Avords:  "Wc have offered us in the neighborhood  a large unclweloped property Avhich we  can deA'elop on A'ery easy terms,, and hav-,  ing our own manager on the spot it may  very Avell suit us to take it up."

Hurt of Dal his, Texas, tells  a story on a : couple of members of the  Dallas legal profession which goes in this  wise: '  They were on a hunting and fishing  j- expedition to Wynne's lake. On the day  of tlieir arrival one of the heroes of the  story, who was at that time a district  judge, found a canoe that had been buried in the mud.. He extwvated it and  found it to be in pretty good shape. He  i washed off all the nmd and calked a few  holes in the bottom, and it was a good  boat. Jt was a long, narrow affair and  was evidently neArer intended to be built  for two.  However, when the judge started out  to fish in his canoe, his lawyer friend insisted on going Avith him. Tlie judge  was sitting in the end toward the lake,  where the water AAras about six inches  deep and the mud about four feet.  "Now, keep out of this boat," exclaimed  the judge.    "You  Avill  turn it over,  sure, if you try to get iirit."  -  "That's all right," said tlie lawyer.    "I  am an old boatman and have fished in a  dugout many a. time, and you know a  .man has to sit mighty level in a dugout."  With  that he stepped  into the canoe,  and  it  capsized instantly.    The lawyer  saved  himself by a  quick spring for the,  bank,   but the   judge, whoi Avas about  fifteen feet oil shore, was thrown in tlie,  bsliallow'iv^i^  llliKe;anrold7JiogBconiing��0vit1of its��sAA*airoAV,*  |" and "AvJien'SliCTi'���eached^thei���ibank'he/deliy-  ered.'-hisropmiont;ob the ��� lawyer^in^any  ���B,   >"ibn  "     o*  D���-.Vfli     "��.D"U^VD.   .fl^P^^P.I      Wpp.^^-"'"   ~' Sn"   -o'Cuft   1��*,..   fl   "���  to tell you here and now that it was intentional, preinediatod and done witii express malice aforethought."  A Whist Problem.  The lvaslo Whist Club has been  trying  to solve it for a year.  tain amount of cordiality with each other  Avhen they meet, proving the truth cf  Bobbie Burns' statement that "A man's  a man for a' that, and a' that." With  the old-tinier, enthusiasm has oozed out  and gone years ago. His early experience here knocked all sentiment out of  him, and he takes things in a matter-of-  fact, go-as-you-please way. There is  more or less cynicism in the composition  of all pioneers. They enjoy a game of  "seveni up" or "crib," and their daily tipple a.s a matter of habit, and as for the  rest, it is a case of "sufficient' unto the  day is the evil thereof." No one ever  saw one of them excited. Well, Kani-  loops is a sort of centre of that influence,  and J cannot define the effect on the town  in any better Avay.  I have the greatest respect and admiration for tlie old-tinier, and hope, therefore, that no remarks in the foregoing  may be construed as uncomplimentary.  lie is a type of man settled doAvn to  plain, practical living, after years of contact with the hard side of life, and who  is totally devoid of cant or affectation,  and I have beeu trying in the foregoing,  without prejudice, to paint him as he appears to me principally to be.
