 WAR EAGLE COMPANY CENSURED  BY   THE   COEONEE'S   JURY.  ^'4^  Rossland, May 20.���Tn the War Eagle  disaster inquest the jury returned a verdict at 9.30 last evening as follows:  1st. We find tliat the deceased came  to tlieir death by the skip falling to the  bottom ol' the shaft, which was caused  by the slipping of a bolt out of its position, and that the machinery iu question was defective, inasmuch as safety  pins should have been inserted in all the  bolts to protect the nuts of said bolts.  2nd. In view of the fact that curtain  defects took place previous to the present  accident we are of the opinion that men  should not havo been permitted to ride  on the skips until such time that the  machinery was perfected beyond a reasonable doubt.  ���'h'd. Wo jire also of the opinion that a  daily report should be made by the engineer-in-chief as to the working order of  the machinery, and that this rule should  be strictly enforced.  ���1th.' AVe would also strongly recommend that a certified mechanical and  electrical engineer should be appointed  to examine all mining machinery in operation.  5tli. We would further recommend  that tho government should appoint several mining inspectors, as in our opinion  the duties imposed on the present ono  are greater than he can perform with  satisfaction, and it is further recommended that a resident inspector should  be appointed at least for this important  i miuing section.  0th. That the practice of employing  uncertified engineers for technical positions of responsibility in tlie mines of  this province, which has heretofore prevailed, i.s to be condemned, and that in  future the strictest rules should be enforced, and that if the present mining  act be insufficient for this purpose it be  amended at the next meeting of the  legislature.      _           How the Ministers Stood.  Victoria, May 20.���Since attorney-  general Martin set the fashion of reveal- |  ing cabinet discussious his colleagues appear to have become less reticent, aud  now the veil is lifted from another scene.

Kbw i-"6RK, May 20;,���More dissensions  luiVe arisen in the Cycle trust and threatens to disrupt that giant combination.  ^\rl-^YtlurfThn?lrocl or more manufacturers of bicycles and bicycle parts gave  options oil their plants to A. G*. Spauld-  ing to June 1st, it was understood that  such plants as were accepted by him  Were to be paid for in cash at that time.  Scores of manufacturers came to this  city last week With the expectation of  .���Josing their deals with the manager of  the trust. They Were more or less indignant xvhep they were requested to extend tlieir options, to August 1st.  ft now develops that several of them  ntatle deterininod protests against ���delay,  and. at least one of tho biggest jnakers in  the combination refused flatly to rciioAV  h\}i option. More than this, the opposition to the trust that was led originally  liy li. Ts CofemHiij wivs revived ancl now  threatens to develop more strength .than  it at first possessed.  It will be remembered that after tlio  incorporation of the American Bicycle  Company with a capital of $80,000,000,  Coleman, Avho had previously incorporated the. International Vehicle Manufacturing Company, a much smaller capitalization, surrendered. Ml*. Coleman said yesterday tliat lie was now out of the trust  for good, having positively refused to  extend the option on his plant.  ocean-going steamers of a Cleveland (inn.  The vessels started on tho cruise through  the great lakes, but navigation closed  when they reached Valleylield, near  Montreal. They remained there iu the  ice through the winter and while waiting  I'or the spring thaw to renew their cruise  the chartering company failed. When  navigation opened tho Cleveland owners  attempted to obtain control of their ships  and.did recover live.  The Helvetia, the sixth, is commanded  by captain Marx, who replenished his  stock of ammunition when .notified that  the ships wore to return to Cleveland.  He has fortified himself aboard and absolutely refuses to surrender. All efforts  initiated by Great Britain and Canada,  iind by the United States have failed to  capture the ship. Secretary Hay called  the matter to the attention of secretary  Long this morning, and it iioav seems  probable that a warship must bo sent to  the St. Lawrence to assist the Cleveland  owners in recovering possession. Captain Marx says that he has no guaranty  tliat the Ncav York Transportation Company is insolvent and lie i.s holding the  ship as security for the payment of betAveen $500 and $000 which he claims is  due him.  Ontario's Legislation Hurts Them.  AVashington, May 20.���The department of state has referred to the treasury department the arrangement of a  plan to protect the interests of the  United States with respect to the lumber  difficulty with Canada and a decision  from secretary Gage is expected very  soon. The treasury department lias uoav  tAvo courses open, both being retaliatory.  The first is the preparation of an amendment to the tariff act, largely increasing  the duties on lumber and forest products  imported into the United States from  Canada. There is possibly another  course. A section of the Dingley act  authorizes the United States government  in.cases where countries impose export  duties, to add tlie sucli export duty to the import duty on such  goods coming to the United States.    The  FRICTION IS ON THE INCREASE  OVER   CANADIAN   ISSUES.  KOOTENAY MINES AND MINING  London, 31 ay 27.���The morning papers  discuss the most prominent feature of  the Anglo-American commission with an  apparent desire to pacify both Canada  and the United States.  The Daily Chronicle says: "The whole  boundary dispute is small, but there is  much reason to fear that the lumber  quarrel is the cause of friction.  Both sides appear to be thinking of perpetual retaliation and  reprisals. Such a state of things is full  of evil. The"commission affords an opportunity to give and take. It is urgent  that a settlement should be effected.  Should this fail and should theNicaragns  arrangement fail also, a very unpleasant  relation might ensue. A return to any  unfriendly temper betAveen the tAvo  branches of the Anglo-Saxon race would  be a disaster to eA*ery one, and aboAre all,  to Canada herself."  o The Daily Mail says: "It is qbAriously  unfair for the United States to expect  the British empire to do all the giving  and America to do all the taking. That  is a form of diplomacy to Avhieh Ave are  painfully accustomed in dealing with  certain poAA'ers. What America seeks is  an annulment of the Clayton-Bulwer -  treaty, and Canada presses for a decision  regarding the Alaskan frontier, which is  of vital interest to her. If arbitration  can anywhere be employed here is the  place, and no opposition to it Avould come  from Great Britain or Canada, for Ave are  confident of the justice of our claims."  ytldhrj: fDiid  ''^"gPyA's]  ,_#h^iife��S,._vn"^  .Ihiblt;ive'-,._!,'xpnorfi����!ta^.; �� .��� If tlii_. vie.*vvv'is����  ;.sdttnd, tlie,treasury has* already at^liafict  the measure, of 'ra-aiiutit>ii4.t:seeJ-S^iiJ^th-  sliape of ah. qiider prolyTbiiiiugthe lingo rt-  atioh of Canadian Togs, into the ;Tj|ni|ed'"  States, Avhicli .wftuicl bear very IreSyily  upon the other provinces in Canada..o.ut-  side ofV0nta-pp, '    '''".-'_." ]  '��     "  The Pope Resents the Slight.

For several hours the fire's progress  was unchecked. Insiiflicient water supply, a long term of dry weather, and a  brisk gale contributed to cause a. conflagration which for a time threatened  annihilation to the wooden district where  it originated. ���  The   flames   spread   to   the   wharves  along St. .John   river, where much   damage was done, but the   general   course of  the   conflagration  was  away   from    the  riA'er.    At   ~> o'clock  the  destruction of  several buildings on Main street  by  the  use of dynamite stayed   the  progress of  the flames along  tlie  line  of  the  street  raihvay, and   the   firemen were  able   to  direct   their  efforts more particularly to  the district north of-Iain street and   including the blocks of dwellings  bounded  by  Victoria,  Metcalf, Bridge, Holly, Cunard and Albert streets.    The  spread of  the flames Avas soon stopped and  all the  evening the ruins gradually burned  out.  The area, burned over comprises fifteen  blocks  or  portions   of   blocks,  and   the  buildings destroyed, 150.

Tho contract lias just been signed for
the building of the fastest boat in the
world. Samuel Ayers & Son, whose shipyard i.s at.Nyack, will build a combined
torpedo boat and pleasure yacht for
Charles lt. Flint, the millionaire and member of tho New York Yacht Club.
Charles D. Mosher is the designer. The
boat will have a guaranteed speed of
forty-two knots an hour, and within
three days could be transformed into the
most dangerous torpedo boat afloat.
Mosher is the designer of the famous
Ellide and other fast boats. The Ellide
has a record of nearly forty miles an
hour, and is the fastest yacht in American waters. Mr. Flint's ambition is to
own a boat that will not only beat the
Ellide, but will be faster than any other
boat of any description in the world.
Designer Moslver says that lie AA'ill produce such a boat. Ayers & Son built the
Ellide, and they will lay the keel this
Aveek for the new flyer. She "will be completed Avithin a year.
The yacht will be 135 feet long, twelve
fo'efc six inches beam, and four feet
draught. She will have twin sci-cavs and
quadruple engines of 12,000 horse-power.
The boat will be built mainly of nickel
steel and bronze.
Designer Mosher is given carte blanche
. as ton expense. V Mr. Flint -'wants a^wprld^

Bachelor Life Expensive.
Bachelor life in the fashionable  world
of England   is .very   little   less expensive
than   wedded   bliss  and   responsibilities.
It is not sufficient for  the smart  unmarried man to return hospitalities by sending round silver dishes full of sweetmeats
at Christinas, or spasmodic gifts of flowers; he  must also  do his  share in  entertaining.    For  this,   restaurant life is responsible.    It  is  impossible  for  him   to
plead in  excuse that  he has not a house
Avhen  there are  so  many  public  rooms
which will answer his purpose; and, then,
he is also expected to provide tickets for
the opera or plays.    Lord  Wilton entertained quite  as splendidly  as a bachelor
as he  has done  as  a married mail;  and
lord  Rosebery and  his neAV son-in-law,
lord Crewe, as widowers, have also done
great  hospitable  things.    The  duke   of
Marlborough's   bachelor   apartments   in
Mount street were sufficiently luxurious
for him to retain and find them useful as
a married man: and there are many Hats
in   Mount  street and  other fashionable
bachelor quarters where the rooms are so
luxuriously  planned  that they  are  far
more suggestiAre of a boudoir than the ordinary bachelors' chambers.    These meu,
too,  spend a  great deal  upon dress; and
their toilet-tables Avould be a revelation
to  people who suppose that-vanity and
extravagance are confined to the fair sex.

that the session was suspended.
After its resumption there was a
repetition of the scenes previously
.Avitnessed. Signor l<*erry, socialist, accused general Baratel, who coinmanded
the Italian forces in Erythea, of fleeing

Remenyi's Pictures to Be Sold.
Ciiicacio, May 20.—The notable collection of paintings which belonged to the
late Edouard Itemenyi, the famous violinist avIio expired on the stage
while giving a concert in Sail Francisco some time since, aviis placed on
sale at auction here today to
satisfy a "mortgage for $10,000.
The collection consists of eleven valuable
paintings, some of them of world-Avide
fame, besides a number of valuable
curios picked up by Itemenyi in his half
century of Avanderings about the Avorld.
It is hoped that the sale will raise sufficient money in excess of the mortgage to
leaA'e the Avidow in comfortable circumstances.

The Corse, a Necessity.
Tlie abolition of fche corsefc is not favored by a recent writer in the New York
Sml, evidently a ilifiii. "The corset," he
miys, "for tlie last four hundred years has
been so much a part of women that for
tliein to discard it would involve anatomical ruin. To put it ilside would require the entire recasting of feminine apparel. The waist-line would have to be
moved seqeral inches above the place it
now occupies, as in the time of the First
Empire. To effect this without substituting for tlie corset some sort of support
would offer revelations that would appall
even those divorced from all allusions.
The necessity of the corset for the embellishment of women can be observed best
in tlie suburbs where, on days when the
hanging out to dry of freshly washed
clothes is in progress, all the women engaged in that functiou are corsetless.
To see them at that time and theu to
meet them later, fully corseted, requires
considerable familiarity with their countenances to establish their identity. A
corsetless regime would be the more fatal
on the stage. Deprive, actresses of the
corset and . scenic chaos would come.
The slender, in the place of flowing, harmonious  lines and .symmetrical  curves,

Nine years ago the writer of these few*  lines made out the papers that transferred an undivided one-eighth interest in tlie  Dandy mine, on Toad Mountain, from  John R. Cook to A. _I.

John li. afterwards drifted  around in the Slocan and in Trail Creek  acquiring mining and other interests;but  he wtis always pretty hard up. Finally  the tide turned, and Kossland was given  a place on the map and Jolm .11. Cook a  rating in Dun's and Bradstreet's.
