 rsTteaarBBBii  MURDER FOLLOWED BY SUICIDE  In a Cranbrook Brothel.  Ci.anbkook, June 20.���This afternoon  Cranbrook added another chapter of  crime to its history but this time the  murderer made matters easy for the administration of justice by inflicting a  mortal wound upon himself. Shortly  after 2 o'clock this afternoon a man  named Brandot shot and killed one of  the inmates in Nettie McDowell's resort.  Tlie woman's death Avas almost instantaneous, and as soon as Brandet was  satisfied that he had accomplished his  purpose lie turned his revolver upon himself' and inflicted what the medical men  in attendance pronounce to be a mortal  wound. The murderer so far as can be  learned at present i.s not very well known  around Cranbrook.  The circumstances of the double tragedy are tragic in the extreme. The victim, Mr.. Lillian Atwood, who was  young and beautiful, formerly lived in  Minneapolis, Avhere her husband was en-  * gaged in business in Lake Calhoun. It  was there she met Brant, who owned a  pleasure launch on tho lake, and became  infatuated Avith him. Aftenvards he  lef b and came to Fernie where he secured  work as a musician in the house of prostitution and she followed him.  Two Aveeks ago they came to Cranbrook  and rented rooms for housekeeping and  Friday they quarrelled. This morning  he returned and soon after noon called  on her. Tliere Avas no quarrelling, he on  the contrary seeming in the best of  humor. Rising to go, he suddenly pulled  his revolver aud shot her tliree times  causing instant death. Turning he  Avalked out of the door, hesitated a moment, then went back into the house aud  fired the shot that ended his career.  Such surroundings and the tragedy has  caused great excitement in the'town.  Fighting for the Toilers.  Ottaava, June 20.���The union label bill  came up again today before the senate  committee on banking and commerce.  10. 3. O'Donoghue of Toronto addressed  the committee. He pointed out that the  adoption of the bill would materially assist in relieving tlie Avorking classes from  the growing evils of the SAveating system,  unduly low Avages, long hours and labor  under unsanitary conditions. Mr. O'Donoghue denied, as suggested by senator  McMillan, tliat the bill would dictate as  to Iioav business men were going to run  their establishments. He (O'Donoghue)  made an earnest plea for the bill, pointing out that labor classes had'-been asking for such legislation for six years, and  although progress Avas being made it Avas  not yet obtained. ,. ,    , *'   .  ��� Senator McMillan in reply said._that_he..  did not think that O'Donoghue Avould  live lOng enough to seo such a measure  become laAV, 'to AA'hich Mr. O'Donoghue  retorted that he might live longer than  the senate.  The bill Avas alloAved to stand oA*er  until Thursday next, but the,senate from  the discussion wliich has developed upon  -the bill so far is evidently hostile.  The usury bill has been* again postponed until Thursday next. Mr. St. Jean,  a Montreal lawyer, appeared before the  committee and said that the Iiiav as proposed would inflict a great injury at  large upon the country.  The Henley Eaces.  London, June 20.���Ned Skippeon, the  Toronto Argonauts steward, says the live  boats, that Clasper is making for the  Argonauts, are ready, AA'ith the exception  oi' the eight-oared, but all Avill be ready  tomorroAV. From all appearances the boats  are satisfactory, but it is impossible to  "jlid gtT]iToperly until-they are~laiuiehed_  Avith their creAvs.  The following entries .hough unofficial  .are probably correct: Grand challenge  cup���Leander clul>, Trinity college, Cambridge; Thames RoAAing Club, Baliol college, Oxford; Lager Rowing Club, Delft  university, Holland creAv and Argonauts  of Toronto,  Steward's challenge cup���Magdalene  college, New college, Baliol college, Argonauts of Toronto, and possibly the  1 (.ammonia club of Hamburg.

This is the first  definite result of the conference.  More Trouble in Cleveland.  Cleveland,-Juno 20.���Cars were  running during the day on all lines operated  by  the  street    car    company  since the  strike.    Atone  p.m.  the committee appointed to settle the street car strike met  the representatives of  the  strikers  and  the,.company. Pending preparations of the  formal  statement,  a  recess   Avas  taken.  Riotous   disturbances   broke  out  about  noon.    A croAvd boarded  a  Wade  Park  Avenue   car   near   Liudus   and    Annal  avenues and beat the non-union  motor-  men  into  insensibility.     The conductor  deserted- the car and fled. Another Wade  Park Avenue car Avas stoned and one on  the  Euclid Avenue line  AA'as   attacked.  Many women were on  board  and cried  Avith  terror as  stones  crashed through  windows.    One woman fainted.     At the  corner  of   Wilson   avenue   and  Quincy  street one man Avas shot and others had-  narroAV escapes.    Passengers  escaped as  best they could AAiien the stones began to  fly, but  the   conductor   and   motormau  Avere struck repeatedly.    The latter dr'eAV  a revoh'er and fired three times into tlie  crowd.-   He then put on speed and ran  his car out of the  mob's  reach.    George  Berger, a striking conductor, Avas hit in  the leg  by a  bullet.     No  arrests were  made.  The creAv of Scoville car No. 224 Avas  badly beaten by ten men at 11 a. m.  The car was on its Avay doAvn tOAA'ii at  Wilson avenue when one man got on, and  eA-ery crossing thereafter one or tA\*o more  men boarded the car until tliere AArere ten  passengers. While Harry - C. Clark, the  conductor, Avas taking up fares, he was  struck on the head from behind -by a  coupling piu in the hands of one of the  passengers. SeA'eral of the other, men.  .tlieu.ju_uped-.on him and pounded him insensible, The others theu turned their  attention to the niotorman. lie Avas hit  on the head and body and sank to the  floor in an unconscious condition. At  Hackmau street the men all left the  cars. A block further on Clark recovered,  sufficiently to cut off the current and  bring the car to a stop. After a short  wait it was run back to the barn. Both  men AA'ere badly hurt.  A. W. Wigel, a letter carrier, riding ou  a Euclid car Avas struck full iu the face  by a stone. He Avas unconscious and  covered Avith blood when he reached  liome. As much freight as possible is  being delivered to the raihvays and the  managers at the different freight houses  appear altogether indiffereut as to  Avhether the strike continues or not.

POORMAM   TQ  RESUME   WORK  Upon Contract Basis.  The Nelson-Poorman Gold Mining Company has arranged for the resumption of  work upon the Poorman. W. A. Harvey,  who Avill have charge of the mine for the  company, has arrived in Nelson and.i.s  now engaged in getting supplies out. He  says that a considerable force will be put  to Qvork at once in straightening things  out at the mine Avitli a Aiew to getting  the property .in shape for the letting of  contracts. As the attempt Avill be made  to do most of the Avork upon the contract basis Mr. Harvey does not anticipate' any difficulty Avith the Miners'  Union over the question of Avages. When  questioned as to the size of the crew  Avhieh he intended to put to "work Mr.  Harvey said that at the outset there  would be Avork for at. least tAventy men,  but when the surface is put in shape and  the management gets doAvn to the eon-  tract basis the force may not be so large.  As supplies are iioav being taken up-to  the property from the railway crossing  Mr. Harvey expects to commence operations in a day or so.  The Strike is Postponed.  Buffalo, June 20.���Contrary to expectations a general strike of dock Avorkers Avas not ordered tonight. A conference was held by representatives of the  various branches of labor along the docks,  and after the freight handlers had been  urged in vain to return to work, it Avas  decided that no action looking to a general strike would be taken until president  Keefe of the Iongshoremens' association  arrives here and looks into the situation.  A telegram was sent to Mr. Keefe urging  him to come to Buffalo at once, aud he is*  expected here tomorroAV night.  Leaders of the different labor bodies,  when spoken to at the conclusion of'tonight's meeting, said that Avhile they  A\**ere averse to a general strike and .would  try to prevent it, the agreement between  the different unions to stand by each-  other AAras binding, and should the advance iu Avages asked for by the freight  handlers not be granted, nothing could or  AA'ould prevent' the calling out of every  union man employed along the docks. In  the, meantime but- little AA-ork is being  done on the .docks. A number of, the  lake freight boats have been laid up and  the feAV that-"are in the harbor are beingt  loaded, slowly by non-union  men.  The Magazines Exploded.  Pexsacola, Florida, June 20.���The  smaller magazine's of Fort Rickens bleAv  up this morning having caught fire from  some unknoAvn cause and wore completely  Avrecked.

YTHE Hague, June 20.���The Brussels  conference sub-committee at the international peace conference convened today,  Professor de Martens of the Russian delegation presiding. The drafting committee's report was amended in regard to  awarding greater protection to neutral  states, defining the rights of civil populations to organize for resistance, and the  rights of armies as toward armed civilians.

The report of the sub-committee Avill uoav be presented to the conference and it is believed that nearly all the  powers.''will adopt the neAV articles as a  basis of instructions for armies when entering the field.  The Geneva convention conimittee held  plenary session today to cousider tlie report of its subcommittee. Captain Mahan,  ofthe American delegation, again dreAV  attention to the omission of an article defining the exact status of wounded, aud  Federationists Win in Sydney.

Maxwell Stevenson started work on  Monday on a tunnel that Avill tap the  Highlander mine at Ainsworth at great  depth. The tunnel will be about 2000  feet long, according to surveys made by  A. E. Hodgins of Nelson. Ainsworth- is  not considered a high-grade camp, and  undertaking sucli an expensive piece of  work at a time Avhen operations at mines  in high-grade camps are suspended because of the .eight-hour laAV looks A'ery  much, as if the high-grade mine owners  do not Avant to do the fair thing by the  country in AA'hich so many of them have  thrived and made fortunes. Mr. SteA-en-  sou is from Philadelphia, where capitalists are said to be A'ery conservative.  NEW DENVER.  The Fidelity group, adjoining the  Bosun, near this town, has been purchased by a syndicate headed by Hon. Mr.  Morris, president of the Montreal board  of trade. The Fidelity Avas originally  discovered and OAvned by Byron, Holtz  and Williamson of Silverton, avJio shipped several carloads of ore,'with good returns. It finally passed into the hands  of Scott McDonald, late of the Payne, aud  his associates, Avho have .since disposed of  their holdings. The deal has caused  some stir here, and folioAving closely upon  tlie sale of the Mountain Chief indicates  a much brighter future for tli is immediate vicinity.  A couple of experts haAre been inspecting the Silver Mountain properties surrounding the California and a deal "is  again in progress for the purchase of the  entire layout.  On the August FloAver, adjoining the  Hartney, on Sihrer Mountain, E. Shannon  has uncovered four inches of clean galena  by ground sluicing. There Avas" twenty'  feet of AA'ash.  D. Mero, who owns a claim on the  toAvnsite just south of the creek, Avill  have a 100-foot tunnel driA'eii to crosscut  the' vein in exchange for an interest in  tlie prospect.

A local syndicate is putting in a limited system of Avatcrworks from a series of  springs" on Goat  mountain  to  the  residences surrounding BigeloAv Bay.  The Arlington mine, Springer creek,  has increased its force lately. It pays  $3.50'per shift.  The people in tlie Ioaa'ci- lake camp arc  anxiously aAA*aiting the com pie lion-pf the  Springer creek wagon road. Machinery  is needed at the Arlington, AA'hich cannot  be hauled up to place till the road is in  shape. The snow has all gone off and  the ground is drying up, and the present  is an excellent time for tho building of  this much needed road.  More agents of purchasing capital are  in the camp these days than for several  years.  The suoav has gone rapidly the hist  feAV days and tlie lake has come up Avith  a bound.           FERNIE.

There Avere several million   feet of   logs  on   the   bank-  ready to be ..iiAvn as soon as the   water  Avent down,    it is doubtful Avhether  the  company Avill rebuild the mill, as the original   intention in   its construction  Avas  principally to saw limber to  be used nn  the construction of the Cvoav's Nest Pass  raihvay.        ___________  NELSON.

The  first important Avork to be undertaken  A\'ill be the connecting of the tunnel Avith  the shaft, so as to secure ventilation, and  the probabilities are that Avhen this is  done considerable ore will be taken out.  YMIR.  At the Yellowstone mine everything is  in full SAving again. About scA'eiity-five  men aro employed and the standard union  AA'agc of $3.50 for eight-hour shifts is  being paid.  Work on the Crested Butte is being  rapidly pushed fonvard. ,  The two mineral  claims  I'm  a .Little  Sampson and the Iron Duke have recently  been "located by M. Cosfcello, J. Bourgoine  and AV. Montgomery,-' and 'Avork  Avill be  'commenced on them-at once.   .  Q.i the Homestake, OAvned by C. Willis  ct al, Avork is to be started up next Aveek.  This is a most promising property.  There are a great many deals pending  upon properties, partially developed and  prospects, in this camp by eastern capitalists, and if they come oft things avi'11  be quite lively ere long.  F. P. Drummond -recently Avon in a  raffle a eayuse, saddle and bridle, and  the Avhole outfit only cost him $4.50.  The main pipes for the water have all  been laid doAvn and the hydrants erected.  The complete system should be installed  this Aveek.  Jn tho local stock market things are  beginning to look up, as enquiries are  coming from the cast.  Tlie Ymir mine has not done one foot  of dcA'clopinen. Avork since the miners  quit on the first. WhocA'cr is responsible  for this, Avhether tlie general manager on  the spot or the managing director in  London Avill have soni<>_explainiug__to_do_  at the next nieeting of shareholders,  amongst Avhom are some keen business  men, Avho avi'11 Avant to knoAV the A\*hy  and A\iiercfore tliat the mine has been  shut down Avithout cause,  R. O. Pollett has brought down from  the Nevada mineral claim, operated by  the American Kagle company, about 200  pounds of good looking rock which he is  going to have assayed, lie says thoy  have about eighteen inches of fine shipping ore, and that the vein is a true fissure. He i.s much pleased with the outlook generally, and Avork is being vigorously prosecuted.  A temporary bridge has been built  across Porcupine creek by those mo^l interested in that route.  They are still busy at the IS veiling  Star shaft pumping .out water.  The Laurel adjoins the Nebraska on  Bear creek where there are twenty-eight  feet of a tunnel and Avork is going  steadily on, four .men being employed.  The assays ran as high as $18. Four  samples averaged $0.75 each.  W. H. Jeffcry, the mining engineer, is  very much struck AVitli the formation up  Wild Horse creek and .says Avithout doubt  it is a fine gold bearing belt,  II. M. T. Pym has gone on a fishing  trip up Kootenay lake.  Commissions as justices of tlie peace  have been issued to A. B. Bncl'Avorth, W.  Delahay, A. L. Knox and J.

Agrarians Receive Another Check.  ...B.-I.,i_in,  June  20.���The 'committee" on  the commercial, provisions between Germany,  and   England    has   rejected   the  agrarian .amendments  to the  measures.  These provided that the English colonies  be excepted from the benefits of the pro-  A'isorium.  ELECTION OF MHOOL TRUSTEES  To Be Held on Saturday.  At a meeting of the ratepayers AA'hich  Avill be held in the school liouse on Saturday morning, for the purposo of electing  a school trustee to take the place of Dr.  E. C. Arthur, who retires, the question of  the desirability of having Nelson created  a school district Avi 11  be  laid   before the  electors.      It  will  be  remembered  that  upon the occasion of his last visit attorney-general Martin promised that in  the  OA'ent of the people desiring it  the  gov-  .ernment would introduce the   legislation  necessary to the creation of Nelson as a  school district.    The  adA'antage of this  change Avould be that from the proceeds  of  the provincial  school  tax  of $3 per  head and the proA'ineial per capita allowance upou school attendance there Avould  be much more available for school purposes than the trustees can secure under  the existing   conditions.      The  trustees  consider that if the people  are  desirous  of securing this change, Avhieh  -will giA'e  them not only the  control  of tlieir oavu  schools but a larger fund for school purposes, it is incumbent upou them to   put  in an ax-pearaucc at the meeting on Saturday   morning   and   so  express themselves. Y  Another matter Avhicli Avill probably be  laid before the electors is  the  action  of  the proA'ineial  education  department in  'stopping the pay  of the school teachers  Avho in accordance Avith the instructions  of the trustees closed  their class rooms  for. a couple of' weeks during the month  of May OAAing to oyei-crowding.  Water Wastage Increases Taxes.  The Tribune maintains that .Avere all  the', leaks stopped," there AA'ould be ample  Avater in Anderson creek to supply Nelson.    No effort is being made in that direction.    The foIloAving  fron   the   New  York Sun goes to. show that Avater Avast-  age is tbe cause of largely increasing the  cost of a water supply:    "The testimony  of      expert      Avitnesses      before      the  assembly   committee,    corroborated   by  general observation, Avas scarcely needed  to establish the fact that more A\*ater is  Avasted in NeAV York than in any other  city of the Avorld,  and  that NeAV York  wastes more Avater in a year than some  large cities use.    The Avaste of Avater iu  New York has entailed the issue of bonds  for a  A'ast municipal  debt, and imposed  taxes    upon   householders    and   others  which haA'e operated to the detriment of '  manufacturing  concerns   iu   NeAV York  "and have "caused tlieir removal to other,  neighboring  cities.   The daily consump- -  tion of- watpr in the eity of London is, -  approximately, 175,000,000 gallons.    The  average  daily consumption  of water in  the eily'of Paris is  100,000,000  gallons.  The  average daily consumption in Ncav  York county  for the year 1S9S was 243,-   ��  000,000 gallons.    London- had, by the estimate of the registrar general; in 1897, a  population of 4.405,000.    The  population   _  of Paris,'by the municipal census of 1896,    '  was 2,000,000, and tho population of New  York county, according to the board of  health estimate, is uoav 2,040,000.  License Application Adjourned for a Week.,  A meeting of the board of license com.  missioncrs- mayor   Neelands,   alderman  McKillop and John A. Turner���was held  yesterday afternoon  when the  applica-.  tion  of   A.  JI.   Clements   for * a saloon  license i'or the Oddfellows block was considered.    The application for the license  AA*as   opposed,   howeA'er,   byia   counter  petition and on going into the.matter the  cominibaioners decided that  the  petition  did not have  the  necessary  number of  signatures.

As soon as a New Brunswick man finds  out that he cau produce something wliich  city people want and are willing to pay  for, he* becomes so devoted to his specialty that he overdoes the business. For  two years Jack Gilpatrick of Pembroke  has made efforts to add chcckerberry and  strawberry flavoring to bear meat by  feeding the live bears on au exclusive  diet of berries. Iu 1897 he sold a check-  erberry bear for $G5, which elated him so  that he resolved to form a chcckerberry  bear trust to control the world's markets.  Last year, checkerberry flavoring not being iu demand, he modified his plan, selling one pure strawberry bear for $40 and  another that was about half-and-half; for  $25. This year he has made a specialty  of plain stnvwberry bears, ancl is now  raising them under contract for delivery  in St. John on or before July 1st.  As few strawberries get ripe in7New  Brunswick before June 20th, Gilpatrick  has fretted of late because the season was  cold and backward, giving him only a  short time to put on the finishing  touches. One day when he Avas standing  outside his log cabin feeding, his bears on  strawberry jam and wondering if he  could afford such luxuries,' George Coleman, who drives a soft drinks cart from  Perry Settlement to supply the country  soda fountains, hauled up in his yard and  of the two shoes disappears very soon.  And then, too, in sonic cases the man's  right foot is the larger, tlie man being  right-footed in this respect as men are  sometimes left-handed, the reverse of  of the common habit in tho_u.se of their  hand. If shoes were commonly made  .with the left a little bigger than the  right, to fit the majority of cases, they'd  be worse than ever when you hit a right-  footed man. So the shoes are made alike  in size, a man gets a pair that fits him.  comfortably to start with, and they  adapt'themselves quickly to any slight  differences in the feet.  $ipir<%S^^  What Makes Success.  "We are forever going to begin work  -in earnest tomorrow," said Mr. Staybolt,  "and Ave are never satisfied with: the job  we've got, and Ave perform the labor -involved in it in only a half-hearted manner, but Ave are going to work in dead  earnest Avhen Ave get a job to suit us.  "The fact is that tomorrow, when -Ave  get to it,-. will-be to us as. today is. to us  iioav'J we shan't feel-any more like work;  and that other job, AA'hen Ave come iu  actual contact AA'ith it and see it close at  hand, won't suit lis any better than the  one we've got uoav does.  "The truth is that we are daAvdlers and  shy of work, and trying to get along just  as easy as we can. We hate to pitch in  -and goat things.  "The time tor ns to work is now,.'not  tomorroAV; and the job for us to collar is  the one we've got. Round that up in  style; do the work completely and thoroughly and you'll be astonished to find  how you'll bring it out and what chances  there are in it. And everybody that  kuoAvs about your woz-k or is in any way  concerned or affected by it, as it is done  well or ill, will be delighted to see it Avell  done���everybody likes to seea job, .whatever, it is," well, done���and pleased with  the doer,  and there's  money in it every  fluence on my after career, for I not only  resohTed not to go back, but never to  fight any game of chance in the future.  So I quit gambling then and there and  kept my resolution. In my time I have  knoAvn many of the biggest gamblers of  the West. Some of them I Avould trust  in any sort of Avay that man can be  trusted, but very lew have T known who  ever saved anything out of the business.  "The last time J was in Virginia city,  one of the most honorable members of  the fraternity I ever kneAV, a man who  has been worth $500,000 at one time, told  me he was hungry and hadn't a cent to  buy bread. For the sake of old acquaintance 1 relieved his necessities, but I  thought of the time Avhen he cared no  more for dollars than if they Avere  pennies."          Would Not Buy It.  London, June 20.���Replying to a question on the subject in the house of commons, Mr. Gerald Balfour, chief secretary  for Ireland, admitted the county council  of. Kerry had petitioned the government  to purchase the Herbert estate in Kilkenny, but he added there AA'as no evidence of a general * demand on the part  of the public to purchase the estate as  FULL LINE0F  tlie place, he explained, was removed  from the population centre and was of  no A'alue to the tourists during many  months of the year.

An order was made on Monday for the  committal of John Ilastieof this city for  contempt of court. Ilnstie was served  with a judgment summons in the case of  Arthur vs. .Hastie but failed to appear.  He is now supposed to be in Spokane in  wliich event the order will not be of any  use unless he happens to again cross the  boundary line.  it i.s reported that K. V. .Davis, Q.

Tne Nelson Company of Kootenay  Rifles has been ordered for drill every  Thursday eA'euing at 7:30 o'clock instead  of Friday eA'euing as heretofore. The  order goes into eifect on June 22nd.

Tliere is no truth in the report thatthe.  management of the Athabasca mine is  endeavoring to work the Athabasca with  Italian labor. It is understood that two  Italians went up the hill but one came  down yesterday. The members of the  union say that they are convinced (hat  no such policy would be dictated by  either Mr. I-Y.ll, the local manager, nor by  his foreman at the mine, boi.'i of whom  recogni/.e the advantage of skilled labor.  I'1. Simpson is about to put in a billiard table at the (.'rand ('(Mitral Hotel.  It has been ordered from May of Toronto.  Probably few people realize what the  pay roll of.an industry like tlie Nelson  I'laiiing Mills amounts to. No fewer than  ninety-eight; men are directly or indirectly employed by the company. They  are distributed as follows: Twenty-nine  men are employed at the saw mill anil  factory (which are at present working  short-handed), there are also twenty-nine  carpenters, five bricklayers, ten masons  and twelve laborers. Tliere are also nine  men in the quarry belonging to the company and six teamsters.  At the Exchequer niine stoping Avill  probably be "commenced at the end of the  Aveek. From the tunnel level to the surface there are about .100 feet of stoping  ground, so that considerable ore can be  taken out if the management decides  upon making a showing.  A three-story boarding house is in process of erection .at the Dandy mine on Toad  mountain. Ore bins are also being constructed.  oo  ���I  a**-  c_  r���  CO  _E  NELSON, B. C.  KASLO, B. C.
