The stamps  were dropped for the first time on  .January 28 bh and commenced  running regularly on February 1st.  In its first eleven months' run, ending December 31st, the mill ran 312  days aud 21 hours out of a possible  H'M. Out of the 2L days and 3 hours  that the stamps were hung-up, 8 J  days were duo to causes outside of  tho mill, i. e., holidays, tramway  troubles, otc, and 12 days and 15  hours were due to the monthly  cli'iuuups and repairs. In the 11  mouths the mill crushed 81071 tons,  or .an average of 770 tons per month,  or 2.7 tons per stamp per day of  running timo. The ore is n hard  white quart/, carrying iron pyrites  and traces of galena and zinc blend.  During the 11 months the air  compressor, which is run by the  mill gaug, with tho exception of  the usual short delays for repairing  and replacing belts and'valves, ran  Tho-mill is under  mill-foreman J.

The Joint Note is Signed.  Pit-kin,   January   13.���The joint  note of the powers has finally been  signed by  the Chinese peace commissioners.      Princo   Ching  signed  yesterday,   and   Li   Hung   Chang,  who is better, signed it today.    It  is   understood   that   the    malady  from   which   Li   Hung   Chang   is  suffering is Bright's   disease.    He  was feeling worse yesterday, and  therefore postponed the affixiug of  his   signature;   but   prince Ching  was hopeful that he would be able  to sign today, which proved to be  the case.     Prince' Ching has protested     to     the     court    against  tlio     appointment,    said     to     be  contemplated,   of   viceroy    Chang  Chin Tung as a plenipotentiary in  the place of Li Hung Chang.   He  believes the hitter's   advice   absolutely ess-ential, although   he   believes   it   might   be   advisable   to  appoint   a   third    plenipotentiary  for China, and reiterates Ins  desire  for   the   appointment    of   Sheng,  which would be acceptable to the  foreigners.   The Russians say they  will formally turn-over the railroad  to the Germans immediately. * M.

P.;R.  and the Globe and Mr. .laffray, the  Globe's president. "1 hardly knew  it amounted to a dispute," observed  Mr. Blair. -"T know there has been,  some difference as to the charge  made by the Canadian-Pacific with  regard to the carriage of coal from"'  the Crow's**: Nest Pass Coal Com--  pany's mines to Lhe United States  boundary.

R��� and have questions to  _fighb-StilLwith them_in the interests-,  of the public of Canada, I am inclined to think the C. P. R. is right  in the Crow's Nest coal transportation question."  It is alleged by the Conservative  organs in Toronto th.at the govern:  ment is in league with the coal  mining company, whose president  is the Globe's president.  "Well," observed Mr. Blair, "1 do  nob think T can say more than that.  I do think, so far as bhe facts beforo  mo at the moment warrant my expressing nn opinion, that a case has  been made out of exorbitant charges  on the part of tho C.

R. and the  CrowX Nest Coal Company. This  latter company makes its fight  through Mr. Jaffray, senator Cox,  aiid the Globe, which enters the  scene - under the pretext that  the tariffs of the C.

This  reality, appears in  because - of a con-  resulting from  ofj coal   lands  The people of Rossland and of  Nelson started in to mannge their  own affairs-as city municipalities  on the same day���April 15th, 1897.  They had an equal start, as the Act  incorporating them gave them  equal borrowing powers. They  have been in business close on to  four years, and comparisons as to  how they have succeeded may be  interesting to those who have criticised the methods adopted in the  respective towns of conducting the  civic business.  Rossland was made a wide-open  town at the start. The number of  liquor licenses was not limited and  public gambling was permitted.  Nelsou limited the number of liquor  licenses.and prohibited public gambling. Rossland did not acquire  any of the public utilities until its  third year, when it purchased the  water-works at a cost of $40,000.  Nelson purchased the existing system of water-works before it had  been in business a month, the mayor  and three of the aldermen giving  their-personal note for the purchase price, as the city had neither  money, nor' credit, and before two  years elapsed purchased and paid  for the electric light .works. Both  towns had to incur large expenditures to make passable streets aud*  lay sidewalks.- Nelsou had an advantage in building sewers, because  it had an outlet within easy reach.  Rossland commenced a sewer system,-but large' expenditures'*.will  have to be made in /order .to make  the system satisfactory.. Both bnye  "paid gooiT^alaries to "cityyoaTKiials  and employees. ."Roth have, practically, the sanie indebtedness; Nelson has assets that could be sold  for $100,000 more than "her total  liabilities, Rossland's assets could  not be disposed of for a siim. snfli-  cient to pay her liabilities." -The  public utilities owned by Nelson  cost $315,000, from which the city  derived $35,348 -SO revenue in 1001,  or 10A per cent gross on the money  invested. The public utilities owned  by Rossland cost $135,000, from  which the city derived $15,013.20  revenue in 1900, or Hi per cent  gross on the money invested,  policy of a wide-open town  Rossland a total revenue of  0(55.80 from liquor licenses  police court fines, at a cost  .$10,048.14 for   maintenance   of  The  gave  $20,-  and  of  a  the "-'���west'  group,    in  the     war  fliet   of  interests'  large    concessions  along the Crow's ��� Nest ��� Pass  railway, lands.which have become  of great value recently. There is  much'., heat in this war of words,  which is not very clear. "The facts  are too involued to discern the  truth, and it'appears rash to form  au opinion bu the interesting articles in the Globe.* We await events."  ���The-Witness juts a lengthy and  forcible article on the matter criticizing Lhe course of the Globe and  pointedly asking the cause of the  sudden and extraordinary vehement renewal of its old crusade  against the C. P..R,  police department, an apparent  profit of $10,017.00. The policy of  restricting the liquor licenses gave  Nelson a total revenue of .$13,931.59  from liquor licenses, police court  fines, and miscellaneous, at a cost of  $.992.01 for maintenance of a police  department, an apparent profit of  $8938.98. Rossland received $20,-  427.19 from real estate taxes, while  Nelson got only $13,153.51 from tho  Bitrae source. The difference is  great, but tho explanation is that  Rossland has a large area of land  within its boundaries, while Nelson  has a small area. The tax .rate in  Rossland was ��� per cent in 1900,  while in Nelson the rate was 1 per  cent. Rossland paid $10,422.84 to  maintain a fire department in. 1900.'  Nelson's'fire'department cost $1.0,-  492.99. Rossland spent $3875.39 in  operating and maintaining its scavenger department, and collected  $5430.05 scavenger rates. Nelson  spent $0775.97 on its department,  and collected $4993.08 scavenger  rates.' -���;... ..;*, .-.   .  ���������*������..'  Rossland paid $0070 salaries for  mayor, aldermen and clerks. Nelson paid $5147.00 salaries for mayor  and clerks. Rossland disbursed  $0505.96 ' in the way of special  grants,'relief to the poor.jsmallpox  expenses and health officer's salars-*.  Nelson paid out $8817.13 for like  purposes. These figures are just a  trifle startling, Nelson's payments  on these accounts being more than  one-ninth of the total revenue.  When ib comes to disbursements  for public! works, Nelson's showing  i_ much better than Rossland's.  Nelson's total for the year was  $80,303.04; Rossland's, $61,160.56.

A HIGH SCHOOL PROMISED  To be Opened at Once.  At the last session of the legislature the member for Nel.-ion riding  urged tho provincial government to  make provision for a high school at  Nelson; but the trouble was that  liossland was asking for an appropriation for the same object. However, the minister of education  promised that the school would be  opened at Nelson just as soon as the  required number of pupils passed  the entrance examinations. . The  number passed and the minister  was promptlyi reminded of his  promise. A le.ter from the member for Nelson brought the following in reply:  Education Okpicr,  Victoria, .Tanuary 8, 1901.  John Houston,-Esq., M.P.P., Nelson���Dear Sir: Yourletter of the  3rd instant just received. The  question of a high school at YfiTelaon  was never in doubt from the time  we received the results of examinations there. I am now using evety  eudeavor to have a hi^hY school  started there at ouee.yii-haye the  honor to be, sir*, your obedient  servant, J. D. Prentice,  :   Minister of Education.  H. .T. Cambie, resident C. P. R. engineer for the Pacific division, is in  the .city today on business.     On  Saturday Mr. Cambie inspected the  work ou the foundations for the  bridge over the  Columbia at Robson.    Referring   to this he states  that the work is progressing fairly  well and there .are hopes that the  contract will be completed on time:  Tlie most important feature of Mr.  Cambie's* visit to the city is in connection with contracts to be let for  work   on the  main   line   between  Nelson and Robson.    List year a  considerable sum was oxpended in  improving  the   alignment   of this  section   aud   a   number of   sharp  curves were reduced by mailing cuts,  through .which the" track was laid  anew. ��� The company's program of  improvements was not completed  and it is their intention to continue  the      work     this     year, ' beginning during the next few w-eeks.  It has been    asserted   that   with  the   completion   of  the   Columbia  river bridge the CVP. R. intends to  put on two through trains,and that  these trains will  surpass  in  speed  and comfort anything ever thought  of iu the Kootenays.   The fact that  the company is  spending  a   large  appropriation to improve Its line to  Robson'   indicates    that   heavier  locomotives and rolling stock are to  be used, and it seems  not  improbable that-'by this  time  next year  passengers'for the Boundary will  ride in  first-class coaches such  as  arejised onJ>he main line... ,-',;-  i--,*-*-> t���**;..^-__���**���     - - ***"   ~sz. *...���^v*~ -*, y  Divers at the New'Bridge. *���  James Moore, ajJiver from Vancouver, aud his partner, J.

Mr. Dunsmuir will remain  here about three weeks.  eity reuowing old friendships.  More Coal Coming In.  A number of cars of coal for the  C. P. R. arrived in the yard yesterday from the Crow's Nest people,  and the consignment was very welcome for the reserves of "O. C. S."  coal at Nelson were getting low. A  few months ago the eornpauy had  a 3000 ton reserve coal heap in the  yards here, but this has diminished  rapidly under the demands made  upon it since tho trouble with tho  machinery cut down,the output at  the pits. From 500 to 700 tons remained, but this is comparatively  trifling when a score or thereabouts  of locomotives are depending upon  it for their coal supply.  Will Move Shortly.  Work is still proceeding briskly  on the passenger depot and the interior is rapidly being put in shape  for occupation. Downstairs the  electric chandeliers and hanging  lights are in place, and the fittings  for the other conveniences are being attended to. The seats for the  waiting rooms are..delivered on the  ground and it lodk's as though this  part of the building*.* would be complete within a week.or two. Upstairs the completion of. the offices  is being rushed ahead iu order that  the local officials may occupy their  offices as earlsr as  possible,    ft is  probable that tha dispatcher*,'  fices will be the first occupied..  of-  On the Water Trout.  Within the next lew weeks two  craft, each the best on inland waters  in its particular class, will be completed in the Nelson harbor. The  first of these is the uewC.'P. R, tug  now almost ready for launching at  the shipyard.   The tug is built to  tow the maximum amount of freight  at the best rate of speed compatible  with economy, and lake men are  awaiting her trial trip with very  considerable interest.   She will be  the largest and most powerful tug  on these waters, and from her lines  should be swift aud sea worthy. The  date of launching is not fixed as  yet.   The second craft under way is  captain .7. W. Troup's .launch whicli  is being set up at Hale's boa'thouse.  The hull and framework for the  canopy is complete as far as the  first   coat   of   paint,   while    the  engines are being set up on the sec- J  ond story.   ,The motive power will  be furnished by a triple expansion  engine beautifully put together and  finished, while the boiler is of the  tubular pattern.   Engine and boiler  seem to be large enough to run a  craft twice the size of the launch  in which they are to be employed,  and it is safe to predict that captain Troup will have'the nattiest  craft on the water next summer.  The work is not being pushed ahead  rapidly, as it is not proposed toj.ise  the .eraft 'until after high water,  which is still several months ahead.  Hale's gasoline launch is in regular commission and is being used  iu tho minor carrying traffic on the  west arm of the lake.   This" craft  was more or less an experiment ou  the lake, but has proved to lie useful for the purpose for  which  she  was   designed.    George" Hale   has  abandoned the plan" of building another big launch, but will convert a  sailing craft by equipping it with a  gasoline motor.  The level of the lake is now three  feet above the normal mark for the  present season. The - ice which  formed almost across the lake vanished yesterday.  A PEACE COMMITTEE SAID  To Have Been Murdered.  , JaONrioN, January 14, 4:30 a. iu.���  The brief report-ol- the fate of the  three in embers' of the peace com-'  mjttee whojvere sent to see^geuejraK  DeAvot. excites the' deepesV indigua-'  tion on all sides.   Ono or two papers  express a hope that lord   Kitchener  has been" misled by falsified reports,  but   it is   generally  felt  that he  would not have reported the matter to the War oflice without undoubted evidence.  Tlio Daily Mail heads the report  with the word "Murder," and declaims against any further attempt  to coax the enemy into submission.  "Dewet has placed himself outside  the pale of humanity," says the  Daily Mail, "and not proclamations,  but large reinforcements must be  our watchword."  The Morning vPost says: "This  marks the point where the guerrilla phase ends and the bandit  .phase-begins."  THE FIRE AT MOYIE WAS  ONE  THAT  SONS  CAUSED MANY PBH.  TO BISK THEIR  Lives  and  Lose   Their  Property  Escaping* From the Burning Building.  in  All papers appeal strongly to the  government to hurry forward reinforcements, since it is evident the  Boer leaders have now grown desperate and conciliation is quite  useless.  The Pretoria correspondent of  the D.iily Mail announces the return to Pretoria of Mr. Pretorius, a  former president of the late aSouth  African Republic, from a futile endeavor to persuade the Boer leaders  to surrender.  Details of the attacks upon the  Kalfontein and Zurfontein stations  show tha't there were only small  garrisons of about 120 men at each  station. Tho British had excellent  trenches, which enabled them to  withstand the attacks until the  Boers, having ascertained that  reinforcements were coining to the  garrison's aid, retired. At Znrfon-  tein a party of Boers in khaki succeeded in capturing a British  patrol af eight men, whom they  subsequently liberated. The railway and telegraph lines will be  speedily restored. No further  news has been received regarding  the invasion of Cape Colony.  Sir Alfred Milner writes to a.-eor-  ref-pondent in England, saying: "It  would be useless for me to notice  the wholesale lies that are spread  about concerning me. If I attempted  to do so I would have no time for  au3rthiuE.else."  Arviued With "invalids.

This'is notice to corporations, like  ���the West'Kootenay Power & Light  Company, that the people of Nelson  are united when it comes to*pro-  - tecting the city's vested interests.  It is also notice to those, birds of  passage who are' continually faultfinding that they hiive no influence  whatever with the" electorate. A  mayor and board of aldermen elected by acclamation should result in  a satisfactory administration for  ���the year 1901. \_ ^   The smelter at Trail does not  seem to have quit buying, silver-  lead ore.

KITCHENER IS A CENERAL  Not Easily Flustered.  New .York, January'13.���In a  dispatch dated London, 0. a, m.,.  Isaac N. Ford, correspondent of  fiha New York Tribune, cables the  following regarding the situation  in .South Africa:  The meager dispatches, received  from South Africa show that the  iaindley affair was confined to lord  Roberts' body guard, and tend to  strengthen the conclusion that the  current feeling of alarm-is not well  founded.'.The.strategy of the guerrillas is not followed easily, but it  lias apparently, failed in two points.  Tlie main lines of British communication have not been broken by  the series of systematic and well-  ulauned .night attacks, and the in  vasion of Cape Colony has not been  followed by ft rebellion- of. tlie Cape  Dutch, whose sympathies .are now  divided between 'the .Boers and  their own-pockets.  General Kitchener, by the establishing .of  laagers  where the-un-.  armed   Boers   can   be   adequately  protected and by concentrating the  British forces on the lines of communication after clearing the intervening spaces of horses and cattle,  food stuffs and arms, has forced the  commandos, to alter their tactics  and take the offensive against fortified posts in the'Transvaal.    He 13  also releasing his mounted force for  continuous service against Dewet,  Delarey and Botha.     He has not  allowed his geueral plan of" campaign to be thrown into disorder by  the small party of raiders moving  southward into the disaffected districts of Clan William and Piquet-  _be_g,.and_while_the.-danger��� of��� insurrection is not yet averted, the  loyalists of Cape Colony seem fully  prepared    to   defend    themselves  against insignificant forces. General  Kitchener deserves credit for his  courage in adhering tenaciously to  his own scheme of operations and  in   allowing   the   districts   in  the  south to take care of themselves,  .just as lord Roberts in advancing  to Pretoria, was indifferent to what  was going on in his  eastern  flank.  Military men assert that the lines  of communication have been shortened aud  that   many   posts have  been supplied  with provisions for  six months and  released from dependence upon the railway and convoys.    Koomatpoort,  for example,  is no longer connected with posts  further west, such as Machadodorp  and Belfast, but is provisioned for  a loug period and isolated.   Other  important posts are garrisoned in a  similar way, and the lines of communication are compactly arrauged.  The Thaw Pleases Them.  The unexpected thaw has brought  dismay into the hearts of curlers  and'hockey players, but the men  who operate railroads out of Nelson  hailed the milder weather with a  feeling of safisfaction. Tho heavy  snowfall had begun to be troublesome both in the yard and out on  the line. . A Hanger was sent over  the road to Robson on Saturday  and did much toward relieving the  situation, but a few inches more  snow would, have- put the Hanger  out of business and rendered tlie  use of a plow necessary. In the  yard considerable trouble was  caused by deep snow. When the  new tracks are all hud ifc will be a  comparatively easy matter to clear  away: snow by beginning-? at one  track-and plowing the snow to the  next and so on until the last siding  is reached.- There is the dangeiy  however, that a continued thaw will  bring with it the slides which interfere so seriously with traffic, but  this is not looked for at the present  time.  TO THE ELECTORS OP H ELSON:  At tho request of a number of electors, I havo  decided to offer myiolf as a candidate for mayor  at the coming civic eloctious. I havo served as  alderman two years of tho four during  which the eity has been conducting; its own affairs, and my rocord whilo in the council on thu  questions that are now the moat important, issuos  before the people of tho city Is such as will bear  inspection.  1 believe that the city has valuable assets in tho  water and electric light systems, and while in  the council I did everything possible to safeguard  those asset**; and if elected mayor no act or volo  of mine will be in favor of allowing any outnido  corporate interest, to become a competitor with  tho city in the business of electric lighting, a  biihiness in which Iho eity has already invested  S70,oon.  While in lhe council in ISO", 1 voted in favor cf  incorporating a fair wage clause in all contracts,  and that principle was carried out in both letter  and spirit. I see no reason to change my views  on that, question now. Ami I believe, further,  that, with competent foremen and superintendence that the eity can get as good value for the  money spent by having the greatbulk of its work  done by day's labor as by tho contract system,  and no good reason can bo advanced why tho  city should not pay the same rale of wages and  work mon tlie samo number of hours as prevails  in private enterprises.  I am in favor of giving ihe bnsinosi and property interests evory sa'eguard possible, and to  that end I believe tho fire department should be  made as efficient as possible, consistent with the  revenues of tho city.  Nolson should he kept in advance of itsiivals,  and everything possible must be done to induce manufacturing enterprise-i lo locate here,  for it. is Ihe payrolls that build up the cltie*of  today.  Nelson, a western city, is as or.lejly and law  abiding as eastern cities. This is because the  people of Nolson arc tolerant. I believe that, this  spirit of toleration should be continued, and I  will If elected mayor do no act to abridge or our-  tail the rights-or piivilegos of one class of our  citizens merely because another class may have  different views.  The ci'y has made a start in permanenl, street,  improvements, and rn.ni in favor of continuing  those improvement.1* as fast, as possible, with due  regard lo the revenues of the city.

As Par as Nelson Goes.
Tho Nelson ■ Cnrluag club bf 1901-
is easily the most successful and en-
lierprisinfr organization of the kind
over formed in the city. The club
was-reorganized for the season only
a couple of Aveeks ago, bub their
membership is already large and
fully paid up. Tho interest manifested in tho "roaring" game np to
the present exceeds that of other
years, a feature being the enthusiasm manifested by the new players.
Yesterday's ohinnok hopelessly
ruined the ico for the next few
days, but a frost will remedy matter.-*, and when the weather permits
1 ho club matches will be continued
Tho next big event on tho eurl-
ei's' program is the bonspiel at the
Rossland winter carnival, at *,vhich
Nelson will be well represented.
Last year the loeal club sent two
strong-rinks to ]{.o„sland and they
captured.the lion's share of the tinware and other prizes offered. This
year the contingent for Ilossland
will include from four to six rinks,
and,' figured from a comparative
basis, Nelson ought to bring home
all the prizes. a
Since the first drawing of rinks
was made a number of .new players
havo joined tho club, hence it has
been • necessary to rearrange the
rinks somewhat.- Appended is n

The  insurance on. the building was only  $1000. The owners refused an offer  of $0000 recently for the property,  so thai Ytheir loss is severe.  FORD'S "WEEKLY   LETTER  London Lost in Fog.  London, .Tanuary 13.���Isaac N.  Ford in his letter to the New York  Tribune says : The single week of  Avintry Aveather after a mild and debilitating season is followed today  by some of the densest and blackest  fogs ever known in London. From  Westminster bridge there are no  turnesque stones of grey, gold or  pink, but only the blackness of  night, and in,the streets there is  neither color nor poetry in tlie fog,  and naught but stern, dismal prose.  All the street- lamps are lighted.  Wagoners lead their horses, hansoms and omnibuses craAvl foot by  foot, and men are seen as trees  walking. This fog, Avhich is as  dense indoors as without and as depressing as a wet blanket-Avrapped  tightly over the head, symbolizes  English ignorance pf what is going  on in Darkest Africa.  After fifteen months of arduous  and wearisome campaigning so complete is this bewilderment that men  have lost their courage and nerve  and are Avell nigh persuaded that  an army of over 200,000 veterans in  complete possession of the tAvo  Dutch states has been held up by  scattered bands of raiders, and that  Cape Town is protected only by the  guns of the fleet from capture by  Hertzog with 700 followers and a  pair of maxims. ��� There is no clearness of vision or sense of proportion  or sobriety of-* judgment. The situation iu South Africa is a mystery  of great darkness, aud the outcries  of timorous journals for the dispatch  of 30,000 reinforcements and the  warnings of pro-Boer sympathizers  that peace must be made .while  there is time, are like the excited  shrieks of the Ayagoneis and cab-  drivers in today's fog.  The public is prone to overestimate the dangers of the Hfcii-  ation in Cape Colony, where Hertzog and his desperadoes in reality  are pushing south at a safe distance  from the British line with something., of the- swaggering air of  Falstaff and his-followers. While  they are stale, they have not lost  their grit,'but are determined that  tho Avar shall end'in the complete  subjugation "of the Boers. The  weary, homesick soldiers in the  Transvaal have repulsed every  attack Avith their.old time vigilance  and valor and,thp Panglish people,  depressed as they-may be at times,  have the same inflexible temper.  The white man's burden is not too  heaA*y to be borne.  ���TlfeV'  Iti.,   IB jl __E]__E?iS   &0   C/O.  _sr__!XaSO_*<r  KASLO  S-A._srr50_sr  STOVES!   STOVES!   STOVES!

Financial affairs are reviewed by  Mr. Ford as follows: Despite street  rumors,   it   is   probable   that   the  chancellor of the exchequer -will delay the issue of the new government  loan until the middle of February.  The '5 per cent rate which the bank  is gradually enforcing by extensive  borrowings    and ��� the deafness   of  money, tend to strengthen this impression.    ReArenue receipts are advancing by leaps and bounds every  Aveek and gold is returning from  the continent and-may be attracted  from America.   Sir Michael Hicks-  Beach Avill prefer to put out the  loan Avhen the bank is strong and  -the-raoney-market-lias���been-eased.-  Financiers are hoping that dearer  money will bring a good many millions'in American gold to swell the  reduced revenues of the bank and  for this reason regret the continuance of Wall street. speculation on  a largo scale.   Interest on  'change  centred upon Monday's meeting of  the London & Globe shareholders, at  which    Whittaker , Wright,, who  is lord Dufferin's working director,  has promised to make the' declaration  that the    embarrassed  company's    debts    have   been   paid.  Whilo   he   has   advanced   250,000  pounds sterling  for that purpose  and needs as much more to satisfy  the claims of creditors, it is probable that the shareholders will  be  assessed five shillings,, which, with  the capital of two million, pounds,  will yield enough; to clear off the  arrears. This may. involve au in-  creage in the capital of five hundred  thousand pounds, for in the new  order, of stock promoting finance  assessments do not sound so well as  fresh investments. The company  has valuable properties which, under good management, will yield  handsome ieturna; The ship may  be pulled off "the rocks, but lord  Dufferin cannot hope to escape criticism. He wag at:the mercy of the  man at the wheel while nominally  in command off the ship. What  would be said of .the captain of a  transatlantic liner, who allowed his  ship to run on a dangerous reef and  then explain that he AA'as ignorant  of the principles of naA'igation ?  Even a fortnight after the wreck  the darkness is as thick as ever.  The reconstruction of the company  is proposed, but without any authentic information respecting the  financial methods of Whittaker  Wright* the conditions of the as  sets and the extent of the liabilities.
