 HONORS FOR JOYS AND GIRLS  Result of School Examinations.  A comparatively small number of visitors Avore present yesterday at the school  house to Avitness the announcement of  tho honor roll for the year, and the giving away of the certificates. The insufficient accommodations at the school were  brought strongly into relief yesterday.  Only 211 children Avere presont, though  tliere should haA'e been 301, and still the  rooms Avere uncomfortably crowded, especially for hot Aveather. Principal  Soady, in an introductory speech, said  they had had a hard year's work. The  school was badly graded. It had suffered from over-crowding, Avith consequent irregularity of attendance. Hence  the promotions were not as numerous as  they might otherwise have been. He  added that two more teachers were expected after the holidays, and that there  might then be a re-arrangement of the  classes. He then proceeded to read tlie  promotions and the honor rolls in the  A'arious divisions. The certificates of  honor in the fifth division were given  away by Mrs. Smith, in the fourth by  Mrs. Bannei'iiian, in the the third by  Mrs: D. Mackay, iu the second by Mrs.  Hoi'ton, and in the first by inspector  Burns,. avIio presided OA'er tlie proceed 'ifxgs.  These read, inspector Burns read the  list of the candidates for the high school  entrance examination, of whom there were  six. Four had passed, and of the other  tAvo one had obtained the necessary GO  per cent of the total, but had failed to  obtain the necessary 30 per cent in one  subject, namely arithmetic. The other  had obtained the necessary percentage in  all subjects, but failed to get the required proportion of the total by a lew  marks. Neither of these'Avill-have any  trouble iioav in passing. The highest  number of marks obtainable was 1100,  so a minimum total of GOO had to be  reached. FoIloAving are the names and  marks of the candidates for the high  . school entrance examination :  Anna McDonald, 751; Guy Roberts,  713 ; '-Mabel McVicar, GS3 ; Marie Hoi'ton,  082; Jack Bannerman, 077; Joseph  Curran, 028.  Inspector Burns, after a short speech  in Avhieh he urged a large attendance at the election of a trustee  to be held today*.'called- upon the Rev.  Robert FreAV to speak a. feAV" Avords.

Victoria, June .23.���The Klondyke  neAvspapers just received, report commissioner Ogihie as haA'iug been inter-  A'iewed recently as to the probability of  the Yukon royalty being reduced or  removed. The commissioner is reported  as replying thus: "Only Mr. Sifton aud  the poAvers at OttaAva can answer that.  They fixed the royalty. They alone can  remove or amend it. If the published  utterances of Mr. Sifton can be takeu as  correct I believe the royalty Avill remain  as it is. I�� haAre no direct or official ad-  A'ices in the matter. I never advised  placing the royalty on and I do not be-  lieA*e that my reports have been responsible for it.

Will Build a Single Line.  Those persons Avho are curious to knoAv  Avhat route has been selected for the local  tramway will haA'e their curiosity satisfied when the city council meets on Monday, July 3rd. The route has been  selected, but the directors of tho company  consider that before the proposed route  can bo submitted to the city council no  information should be given out concerning it.  F. AV. Peters yesterday informed Tiik  Tribune that the company intended to  build about three miles of traimvay in  the first instance, two miles of Avhieh  will under the provisions of the. municipal franchise require to be built Avithiii  the city limits. With so short a line it  Avould be impossible to attempt anything  in the nature of a belt line, but the first  section of the line Avillbe so laid out that  A\*hen additions are made to it from time  to time, a belt line may be constructed  Avhieh Avill cover a sufficient area to compensate the company for the doubling of  tracks A\*hich a belt line involves. As it  is not likely that the company Avill build  a greater length of traimvay than the  proinotersat present promise, there is but  a remote possibility of the line being extended to the upper station of the Nelsoii  & Fort Sheppard railway station this  summer. Tliere is another thing Avliich  may interfere Avith the suburban extensions of the company. So long as the  traimvay is Avithin the city limits the  company's charter gives it the right to  the use of the public streets, but outside  of the corporate limits it is different aud  the company must make terms Avith the  owners of the additions before they can  use the roadAA'ays.  The provincial directors of the traniAvay company are captain T. J. Duncan,  F. W. Peters, J. Laing Stocks, W. A. Macdonald, and W. A; Duncan. The offices  of the conipaiiy haA'e been removed to  the Clement & Hillyer block.  French Officers Transferred.  ::5_G|:tej^  THE TOWN AND THE DISTRICT  Along the Water Front.

PAl-i_, June 23.���Not for a long period  has a French ministry been greeted Avftli  such signs of unanimous hostility. Judging from the tone of the papers of all  shades, the cabinet can scarcely live as  single day. It is: rumored that parliament Avill be prorogued in a few days to  : enable the go\*ernment to carry out its  programme unhampered. JS-o doubt tlie  cause of hostility is the presence of general de Galliietj and when the paroxysm of anger ha? exhausted itself,  it is not Unlikely that a ace-volution of  of feeling will occur, and. that the government Avill get a good majority in the  chamber of deputies. It is aiinouncd  that the Dreyfus trial will be absolutely  public.

Rossr.AXi), June 23.���Another terrible  accident occurred in the War Eagle mine  between 10:2 _ and 10:30 this morning iu  Avhieh tliree men Avere killed, two dying  instantly and one a feAV minutes after he  had been brought to the surface, Avhile  another man had been so badly injured  that he will die.  The accident was the consequence of  an explosion, caused by an overlooked  shot in which about two sticks of dynamite or a little over had been left.  The particulars a.s far as can be gathered at the mine are as folloAvs : Charles  Lee, Mike Griffin, Charles Sturgis and  Charles Coulson, drill men, and Daniel  Green, mucker, Avere working in the Avest  drift on the 02;.-foot level, 100 feet from  the. shaft. Lee and Griffin Avere Avorking  one machine and Sturgis and Coulson another. The cut hole in question Avas  blasted on Wednesday night and Avas  drilled by the same shift Avhieh Avas at  Avork Avhen the explosion occurred this  morning, the hole haA'ing been drilled-en  Tuesday. It is eA'ident that the tAvo  poAvdcr sticks in the hole Avhieh caused  the disaster this morning did not explode  AA'hen the general firing took place.  The fatal  explosion  Avas  heard by a  number  of  men  Avorking  on  the  same  leA'el, though not in the 'same drift. These*  men understood that an accident had occurred and they at once ran to the  spot  to learn Avhat the extent of the  accident  AS'as.    Tliey Avere met by  Coulson  avIio  Avas the"least injured  of the  party, and  who numb and bleeding Avas staggering  forward-.towards  them.    He  told  them  Avhat had happened and  AA'ord  was at  once sent to headquarters and aid asked  for.     The   foreman   immediately   AA'ent  with a force of men.    The smoke by this  time had cleared from the drift and the  injured -.meii  Avere  found  lying  on  the  ground  coA**ered. by tbroken  rock.

The atmosphere of the house of commons is being continually refrigerated by  the coolness between R. L. Richardson,  M.P., and lion. Clifford Sifton,.and thus  parliament is able to survive the heat of  this summer in Ottawa.  There is quite a contract in front of  Hugh John Macdonald if he is to impart  a throw down to Uncle Thomas -Green-  way, .who ranks as the Fuzzy Wuzzj* of  Manitoba politics, and holds the record  of a iirst-class fighting man. - ;  > ' An indignant repudiation of the statement that the Hamilton Times is "edited  by a Methodist," will be thankfully accepted by every reader who reveres the  name of John Wesley, or admires the  great denomination which John Wesley  founded.      .   Staked a Princeling Prospecting for a Wife.  Newspapers arriving here from abroad  bring the following story: The Ber-  gische Bank, the German Vereius Bank,,  and the Wurtemberg Vereins Bank have  brought suit against prince. Leopold, ex-  hereditary prince of Iseiiberg-Birstein,  who made a tour of America "for the im- *  provement of his mind," and went back  as poor as he came. The banks allege,  they staked the princeling with a fortune  of 350,000 marks and sent him to this  country to prospect for a wife. They expected him to return with Miss Anna  Gould or Miss Florence Pullman, and with  a fortune that would erase his own debts,  put his impoverished father ph a ..ounder  ^blrais=th1M"ln^lu��Ot^ a  well stocked purse to the Iseilbergs for  yeai'SV to .come. Biifj they were disap-  poli_.te.cl aucl now claim 350,000 marks;  with interest for six years. Iu qrder to  evade his creditorSj Leopold has renounced the hereditary title in the principality whose name lie Wars, aiid per-"  iin'tited ah infant nephew to succeed him.  He lioW draws pay to the extent of abovi-  a dollar a day as first lieutenant of the  ��*!.(_-_-_-ssian infantry, and fchis by law is exempt froni execution. The Iseubcrgs are  first cousins to the emperor Of Austria.  Heroic Surgery in Chicago.  Kiiufe K. Qppen, formei*ly as fine a.  &'peeiinan of manhood as the physicians  of Chicago have ever segu, is one of the  few men in the world who lias the distinction, or misfortune, whichever it may  be called, of being minus eight ribs and a  portion of alung_ Oppen, AVho iiow lies  on a cot at the Alexian Brother..' hospital, has three times-been, under the surgeon's knife, and upon two of these occasions he has suffered the removal of a  portion of four ribs. Oppen .was formerly a foreman of construction on the  Northwestern railroad. On the night of  April 4th, 1897, he was held.up on .Bicker-  dike street by two men, one of whomshot  him, the bullet entering liis left lung.  The surgeon who dressed the wound was  unable to locate the bullet, and it was  not removed. At that time, and unknown' to the surgeon, a piece of the  drainage tube which was placed in the  wound became loosened, and, together  with the safety pin-attached to.it, was  drawn into the lung. It began to make  trouble for Oppen, and he was taken to  the county hospital, where, on: August  7th, a portion of four ribs oyer his left  lung was removed and the drainage tube  found and. taken out, no trace being  found  of fche  safety  pin.    Oppeir never  Mountain Climbing Race.  ���    A striking and  novel competition took  place at Banavie, near Fort William, on  Saturday of last week, wheii a record was  established for the  quickest ascent and  descent of Ben .Nevis, the highest mountain  in  Scotland.    The competition was  promoted by John Menzies of the Banavie hotel,  who .offered a gold  medal for  the winner.     Ten  competitors  entered,  including  McDonald, the  captain of the  Stewartonian   football   team;  Mann, of  the  Clydesdale Harriers ; W.  M. McDonald, a  former record-holder,  and others.  After being photographed, the  competitors  started  off from the front  of the  hotel at 11.2, at a sharp run.    They had  nearly three miles of flat  to cover before  reaching the base  of the hill,  and when  they   reached   this  point Kennedy and  Williams  struck  up  a precipitous path  running up the side of the hill.    Kennedy  here drew away steadily from McDonald  gaining a lead wliich he never lost.    The  former, who  is a  local  gamekeeper, was  the first to reach  the summit, at  12.40,  and, after signing his name, he started ou  the return journey,  bounding down the  hill at a pace which none but tliose born  and bred among the mountains dare attempt*   A single slip would have meant  instant death, but he bounded down with,  the siirefootedness of,a mountain roe, and  arrived  at  the hotel  at  1.43,  his exact  time being 2-hours 41 minutes 12 seconds.  The height of .Beii Nevis is 4406,feet, and  the distance from the Banavie hotel to  the^nniiuit is estimated at seven.miles,  so  that it will be  seen  tliat Kennedy's;  was a wonderful  performance.    William  McDouald arrived second, taking 3 hours,  30 minutes,.50  seconds  to complete the  journey.    McDonald last year went from  Fort William postoffice  to the summit  and back  in  2   hours  27  minutes,  and  Swan,  of Fort William, has since clone  the same journey in 2  hours 20 minutes.  The difficulties of the feat Avere greatly  increased'by the fact-that the summit of  the Ben is  covered by over eight feet of  snow,,and the descent .was done in a .thick  mist,  accompanied  by  driving  sleet, in  which several   of the  competitors   lost  their   way.    The   timekeeper   was   Mr.  Lapsley of Edinburgh.  Entirely Unequal to the Occasion.

V.  who is  a student  of the  Garret Biblical  Institute.  Miss Dent was playing close to the net,  and Mr. Richardson "lobbed" the ball  over her head. In turning quickly to  catch the ball on the bound she wrenched  her ankle and threw it out of place. Mr.  Richardson cleared the net with one  bound to assist his late opponent.  "Full it!" exclaimed the young woman,  extending her foot toward her late adversary.  Whether it was the sight of the distorted limb or the suddenness of the  tempting invitation that caused Mr.  Richardson to faint will never be known,  as Mr. Richardson refused to be interviewed on the subject. At any rate, he  fell in a heap before the disjointed ankle  and silk stocking and could not assist the  disabled young woman. V!  But a gallant iceman, who had concluded his rounds of a number of Evanston  homes, Avas passing, and, not being as  sensitive to a display of hosiery as the  young theologian, and being accustomed  to the process *of pulling legs, speedily  .straightened the limb of Miss Dent. It  required a chunk of ice to bring Mr.  Richardson to his senses, and the young  lady will be about in a few days.  FULL LINE OF  HOTEL   ARRIVALS..  HUME.  C. Dixon, Rossland  A. Tallin.
