Tiie negro was driven down tlie  embankment to tlie pile of wood,  with his hands still shackled, and  there bound to a stake. Many carried vails aud boards. The first  thing done was to plant  iron upright in the mud.  made fast' to  bound  to the  a railroad  This was  cross  irons,   firmly  upright   irou  with  PHOENIX IS THE CENTER OF  MINING ACTIVITY OVER IN THE  BOUNDARY  DISTRICT,  m%mi  who was supposed tohaveassawlGfec?  and killed Polly Forbes in this city  in November last, was this afternoon taken from the sheriff's guard  and burned at the stake at tho  > scene of his crimes, half a do/.en  blocks from ttho center of the city.  Probably S00O persons witnessed  tho lynching. Alexandor was tied  to a railroad rail placed up-  light in the ground.  The nogro was taken from his  r cell in the state penitentiary at 3  o'clock this afternoon, placed in a  hack, and brought to town. Fifty  deputy marshals surrounded him,  and there were fifty buggies and  wagons in the procession which followed the hack; When the corner  of Fourth aud Olive streets was  reached, the police who were in the  hack following the one in "which  Alexander-was concealed, jumped  out aud chased several negroes. This  created a diversion which attracted  the attention of everyone, aud during the, excitement the hack in  which Alexander was concealed was  driven to the county jail, where he  was locked, in just as "the mob  reached the doors.  ��� The crowd first attempted to gain  admission by peaceful means, but  sheriff "Evei'hardy refused-to deliver  the negro. The - crowd pushed its  way to the side door, and" the door  was .forced from its hinges." Then  a * man espied . a shapeless mass  crouched down-in one.corner of the  dark cell. ��� An exultant cry. went  up, ���"He's' here!*'-"then"~a*yell"'of tei*--.  ror issued from the cell. 'The tension at this time was so great that  strong men filled the corridors with  hysterical, laughter. Into the cell  rushed those who were nearest the  door, and the mob issued forth iu a  moment dragging the negro, who  had been struck over the head with  ii.,hammer, but he was still conscious. Men fought to get at him,  aud, infuriated, struck savagely at  liim, hitting only his captors, who  guarded him well. ,  "Don't hurt him !"< they cried.  "We'll burn him!" was the response.  Outside the stockade the crowd  surged, and Alexander and his cap-  _tors_wero-*surrounded"~by"a__solid_  wall of human flesl�� Up the hill  into the courthouse yard they  dragged him. Then they stopped  still.  "Confess before we harm you,"  they said.  "[ am innoeont. T am dying for  what another man did. 1 see lots  of my friends here. They know 1  did not do it. If 1 had been guilty  I would' havo said so at tho penitentiary and would- havo stayed  there for life. Tho warden told me  so. Tho policemen told me so.  Would not I havo told them if I  was guilty ?"__  "You lie!"thoy cried.  "My God. men!" ho cried in his  agony, "I have told you tliat 1 am  innocent.   1 can't tell you any more  I did not do it."  "He lies; burn him!" cried the  mob.  "Take him where he committed  the murder," suggested one. *  The suggestion met with instant  approval.  At a quarter past 5 o'clock Alexander, was brought to tlie scene of  the murder of Pearl Forbes, at the  corner of Lawrence avenue and  .Spruce street. The exact spot where  the murdered girl was found was  located by the lenders of the mob,  and a circle was formed. The leader  of the men who held Alexander  ealleiH^or silence. The row ceased  and Alexander was shoved forward  into full view of the crowd. A  howl went'iip, which was*; quickly  hushed as the prisoner raised his  ���shackled hands and began to speak.  Twice he started,1 but the crowd  drowned his trembling voice.  "You are going to kill me,.whatever I say,", he said. "But you men  are wrong. I want to tell you  right now, you've got the wrong  jxian.   I did not do that, and some  wire. Around tho stake wood and  boards wero piled, The man was  chained iu a standing position to  the upright railroad irou. Goal oil  ���aWwaa --ben poured over him.  Before tho match was applied  .Tolm Forbes, father of the murdered girl, stepped up to Alexander  and said: ''You are guilty of murder iug my daughtei."  "Mr. Forbes, if that's your name,  you have tho wrong'man," said the  negro.  "Burn him! burn him!" cried the  crowd.  "Gentlemen, you'vo got   lots of  time,"  said Alexander. ^.V^ou.-.are-  going to' burn   an innocent, man.  You gave me no show. " Can I see  my mother?"  ^A man in the crowd called for  the mother, but she was not in the  crowd. Another man then stepped  up and said to Alexander, "Make  your peace with your God, nigger,  for you will surely die." .   '  Coal oil was then applied for a  second time, aud while it was being  done Alexander called to acquaintances in the crowd and said goodbye to them. He did not seem to  realize that he was to be burned at  the stake, and talked rationally  until' John Forbes, father of the  murdered girl, lighted the match.  Again Alexander was asked to make  a confession, but he replied that he  had nothing to say.  As the flames leaped about him,  Alexander turned a ghastly, hue,  and clasping his hands together began swaying to and fro, while the  crowd yelled, ln fivp minutes'the  negro was hanging limp and lifeless  by the chains that bound him. As  soon as the crowd saw-that life was  extinct they began-to* slowly dis*--  :perse. "*: ITundreds,-however,' stayed***  rip-the last:-- ,Men kept piling on  wood, all the time until about 7  o'clock," when the flames were  allowed to die down. When the  fire had died down sufficiently to  allow the crowd'to approach the  remains of Alexander, there was a  wild scramble to obtain relics.-  After Alexander's arrest, he was  taken before Miss Both, who identified him. Since .then a mob has  surrounded tho penitentiary day  and night. Today the crowd became so formidable that governor  Stanley, in response to a telegram  from warden Tomlinson, ordered  two companies of militia to be in  readiness to start for Leavenworth  at a moment's notice. Governor  "Stanley orjdered warden"Tomlinson  to refuse to turn Alexander over to  the sheriff unless he agreed in writing to protect him.  ,Topeka, Kansas, January 15.���  Governor W. E. Stanley is indig-  uant over the lynching at Leavenworth, and condemns sheriff Ever-  hardy of Leavenworth, in unmeasured terms. He. says tho sheriff  should be made to make suitable  retribution if such a thing is possible. "Thoro was no reason why tho  negro should not have been protected to the last. I ordered the  militia of Lawronce and Topeka to  be ready, and they would havo been  sent to the scene of trouble the  minute the sheriff would say he  needed them." Governor Stanley  announced that he would tomorrow  offer a reward of $500 for the ap--  prehension of anyone implicated in  the lynching of Alexander at Leavenworth.  And Next Year Promises to Be One of  ' Great Prosperity for That  r     Country.  m  Election of Senators. *  New York, January 15.���Advices late this evening show the  election today to* the .United States  senate of the following senators:  Massachusetts ��� George , Frisbie  Hoar (Republican) re-elected; Colorado ��� Thomas M, Patterson,  (Fusiouist); Maine���William P.Frye  (Republican) re-elected; New Hampshire���Henry E. Burnham (Republican,           Railway Company Declares a Dividend.  ..New York, January 15.���The directors of the Buffalo, Rochester <fc  Pittsburg Railroad Company have  declared the first dividend on the  common stock since the reorganization, amounting to 2 per cent.. The  directors also declared , a dividend  of 3 per cent on the preferred stock,  Both dividends are payable on Feb-;  ruary 15th.    .  The mines rouudabout Phoeuix,  the Boundary country, are at  present showing up well and the  prospects for the coming season are  exceedingly bright. This is the  impression that P. Chapman, of the  firm of A. McDonald of this city,  received while making a trip  through that countr*y" two days ago.  Mr. Chapman roturned yesterday,  and in speaking of'-the mining conditions therirlfe said that a general  advanee of prosperity was noticeable throughout the entire Boundary country.  At the present time there are between 400 and 500 miners employed  at Phoenix alone, and regular .shipments from two of the properties  are being made. The greatest activity is on the well-known Ironsides group. The, greater majority  of the men are engaged on this  property and the development,  which is far ��� advanced, is being  pushed rapidly and will be continued all winter. The largest shipments are being made from" this  property and good returns are  being received.  The 'a development of the - Knob  Hill is also being carried * oh steadily. Regular shipments are being  made from this property and the  company is now contemplating  more extensive development during  the coming season. The Stem-  winder and the Brooklyn are���two  other properties where much activity is being shown. \On the-former  about 05. men are engaged -and the*  property is showi'rig'up well. t Sev-  -_*al goqd"pro9pects throughout the  district are being worked and the  indications are that they will become good substantial properties.  Ore from the properties is being  shipped to the smelters at Grand  Forks, Trail, and Nelson.  The town of Eholt, which is now  being made somewhat of a shipping*  center by the C. P. R., is greatly  helped by the activity which, now  prevails, in the mining industry.  There is also a better feeling among  the business men of that section of  country. j   Mining Records at Nelson.  The following mining transactions were recorded yesterday:  Transfers.���From G. W. Taylor  ofNelsonto-WrCalbickof-Nelson-r  entire interest in Bessie M. on  Kootenay river west, for a nominal  consideration; certificate of work  on Japa claim to E. F. Pick.

Frank Sherry of Sloean XJi ty, who  has tho Black Prince on .Springer  creek under lease, is in tlio city  with a carload of ore to havo it  treated at the smelter. This is tho  first carload that has been shipped  under his lease, but ho expects to  havo others follow shortly. The  Black Prince adjoins the Two  Friends,-and several local parties  are interested in it. A great deal  of development work has been done  on it, and at present there is a large  body of galena ore in sight. Four  or five men have been employed on  the property during the past three  Or four months. The lessee expects  to make a good profit out of the  property during his lease. Under-  the terms of his"' lease he has to  drive in a new crosscut to catch  the lead at a greater depth, and  good headway is being made on the  work. ���.'��� "'.' '  J. C. Shook of' Slocan City, who  has been in the city for the past  few days, leaves this.'moniing for  Peterboro, Ontario, where he will  take charge of the management of  the well-known Dickson Lumber  Company of that place. Mr. Shook  is interested in the Slocan City mining division, one pf the principal  claims in which he is part owner  being the Morning Star group. This  is a gold proposition situated on  on the north side of Springer creek  about four miles from Slocan City.  There are a number of openings oh  the property and ore is exposed in  several places. A shaft has been  sunk on tho vein somo distance,  showing over a foot of high grade  ore. A small force of men has been  employed on the property during  the winter and it is"bne of the most  promising properties of that  division.    A 20-stamp mill and an air compressor plant are to be installed at  the Second Relief group, situated  near Erie.�� \R. R.^Neill of Spokane,  of the firm 'of Messrs. Finch and  Campbell, - who are operating the  property, was in the eity yesterday  and substantiated1 the abqye statement" when "asked concerning the  matter. He has''just came in from  a visit to the rproperty and says  that everything 'was looking well.

The first meeting of the  new council will be held next Monday evening.  Wire Apparatus ��� Damaged.  At 4 o'clock yesterday afternoon  the fire department was called to  tho building on Baker street lately  occupied by Kirkpatrick & Wilson.  The telephone wire leading to the  "building had come in contact with  a live trolley wire, and the current  was sufficient to cause a small  blaze to be started, where the wire  entered the building. The fire was  put out before tlie department  arrived.' During the run an accident occuried which might have  proved to bo serious. When the  driver reached the new K.-WVC.  block lie drove into the. excavated  portion of the street and attempted  to cross the car track and the  trucks wore overturned. Thoy  wore slightly damaged aiid had to  be taken to tho blacksmith shop for  repairs. Fortunately no ono was  hurt. The truck was on runners,  which firemen say was a needless  and mistaken change. It is claimed  the truck should be kept on wheels.  MORE TROOPS WILL BE SENT  KITCHENER   HAS   NOT   ENOUGH  ' MEN FOR HIS WORK.

Murraysburg is'sixteen miles west of Graafreinet. The  indications are not wanting that  the decision of the government to  send reinforcements has not been  taken a moment too soon.  Colonel Colville's mobile column,  which has been pursuing the Boers,*,  has been "obliged to rest at Creyling-  stad,to erecta*blockhouse and to  cease operations until reinfoi'ced by  mounted troops.

Toronto, January 15.���George  Gooderham was interviewed today  and is alleged to have stated that  unless the C. P. R. treated mining  corporations better all would be  compelled to close down, including  the War Eagle. He also complained  that the C. P. R. refused to sell the  Trail smelter to the War Eagle for  from $500,000 to $600,000, 25 per  cent too high. Seen tonight at  Montreal, president Shaughnessy  said he thought Gooderham had  been misunderstood. As a matter  of fact, tho C. P. R. bought the  Trail smelter from Heinze and reduced the War Eagle's freight and  treatment rate from $11 to $6 per  ton. Subsequently, the company  offered the mine a freight and  treatment rate of $4.75 per ton, 50  cents for freight and $4.25 for  treatment. Tho C. P. R. was ready  to sell the smelter to the War Eagle  people for exactly what they bad  paid for it. r 2  THE TRIBUNE: NELSON B.

G.< Shaughnessy-is1 compaW,  atively a young man and he is the*  president .of one of the greatest  railway systems in America. .The  Canadian Pacific is a great railway  system, and it is a strong competitor -of other great railway  systems. It also owns hotels and  steamboats and smelters, and is  trying" to operate them at a profit.  .In doing so, the interests' of many  . people and of   many corporations  are'affected, some injuriously and  -'some .otherwise.' Among others  who say. they are injuriously  affected are the men who are  mining   eoaP'on'the  Crow's   Nest  ���Pass-brancVof the Canadian-Pacific  and eopper-gold ore at Rossland.  These men are strong financially  and politically. They are said to  be working to secure T. G. .Shaugh-  nes.y's downfall as a railway manager. Is he strong enough to withstand their assaults? As, a fight  between corporations, the people  have no great interest; but as a  light to the death between men, it  is of interest to thousands who  known the men personally. Tin*"  Tribune sympathies aro with the  red-headed man .who is at the head  of the C. P. R.   v.   ^   The story of the burning of a  negro at the stake in one of the  largest towns in the state of Kansas  shows to what extremes law-abiding  people will go in order to stamp out  a crime that they believe cannot be  suppressed by ordinary legal  'methods. It is said that people  will not go to such extremes when  the person charged with the crime  is of the white race. Whether or  not this is true, the crime' i*3 a revolting one, and the people of the  [Tnited States will stamp it out,  even if the law is outraged in  doing it.   Politicians Becoming Heated.

NEWS    FOR   MEN   WHO   LABOR
Tho American Federation of
Labor lias repressed its willingness
to placo at , the disposal of local
Trades aud Labor Councils the se-'
vices of a special organizer for the
purpose of reorganizing some of the
defunct unions, and, if possible, es-
(.ablishingnew ones.
Retail merchants in several lines
of business in Victoria will petition
tlie city council for an early closing
bylaw. " •
It is said "that the two Chinese
cigar factories in Victoriaf*will go
out of business shortly. The reason
given is-that they are unable - to
compete with eastern products.   *
Tlie Seattle Typographical Union
has adopted a 7.1-hour day for typesetting machine operators. The
wages are $i.50 for night work and
$4 for day work. \ At the expiration of a year it would not be surprising if a piece work basis replaced "the present time work-
system. -
The'small vote of 224 .polled for
Woodley, Socialist candidate for
mayor of Toronto, displays how
few the people are who'"are'pre-,
pared to adopt revolutionary Social-,'
ism. ■»** Although Spence,. a ' pushing-
advocate of municipal ownership
of gas', electric light, tram cars, etc.,.
was defeated, still the vote went to
show'that-13,500 electors against-
OfJOO favor" municipal ownership.
The organized labor vote went to'
Spence,Ydemonstra ting, once more,
the good'sense of tra*de 'unionists,
in keeping'at arms', length "everything of a theoretical*nature.- They
"cannot, afford   to. do -otherwise.
-Trade' unions are the , practical
means of today oi intercepting^the'
encroachments. of capital on the
rights of "labor. Because 'they are
only,- partially* successful,-, is_.ncT
reason why they should throw away
the few concessions gained,' and
pitch their lot in with the Socialists
who have really accomplished nothing..    '     •_________'-

Canada being, subordinate to, and
Avorking'under charters issued by
American institutions, the following list of unions, with amount "of
per capita tax chargeable to. each

thereby, should" be of -interest.
Strike benefits are not given; and
only some of the unions .with a
local significance quoted:

The Massey-Harris Company of
Toronto, who, some time ago, secured an injunction against striking moulders, restraining them for
"picketing," and who later tried to
drop the case, have lost the suit.
This decision means that it is not
an illegal act to speak to and advise "a man not to take employment
from a concern whose men are on
strike. 	
UntViuking unionists ask for
compulsory arbitration,with a binding award. Such a decision as the
one quoted below, given against
a trade union in Canada, would
mean ruin: ''The award of sir David

- The great dockers' strike is still
on at Antwerp. There are 8000
dockers interested, and the strike
is being made a test of unionism.
The difficulty is: about twelve
months ago the •* men succeeded in
obtaining extra pay for night -and
.Sunday labor; now the employers
have made a demand that the pay
for this class of AA'ork shall be re-
duced'HO per cent. The men naturally object to this reduction, and
have refused to work unless the
agreement of last year is carried
out. 	
If Ave all loved our neighbors as
we do ourselves, says a _yni_, Ave

His  sleigh was going down tlie street  pretty fa3t, and when he came to  the crossing at the postoffice he  vvns carried under tlio feet of a  passing team.

SOME LARDEAU PROPERTIES  That Are Being Developed.  Most interesting information is  at hand poncerning j.the mining  properties situated on Pool creek  in the Lardeau district. Pool creek  -enters-Pish-river-about-eight-miles  from Comaplix, at the head of Arrow lake, and- passes direetly tli ron gh  the promising -townsite of Camborne. The Jirst property near the  mouth of the* creek is the Cholla  group, ft is a free-milling proposition, having large fissure veins and  carries high' values in gold. The  property is being developed by the  fmporial Development Syndicate of  Nelson. The present work consists  in  running a tunnel  on  the vein,  whicli has been  found to be from  five to ten feet wide.'  Adjoining the Cholla group are  the Dora and Tliolma properties.  These are also* free-milling claims.  On the Thelma there is a very fine  fissure vein ��� upon which considerable surface work has been done.  The Blue Jay group is situated a  short distance up the creek, containing free-milling ore which gives  good returns. The next property  is the Clara, claim, aiid although  yet a prospect it has every indica  tion of making a mine. Further up  the creek is the Uliley group, also  free-milling, which has a large ledge  of low grade ore.  Some distance from this is situated  the Eclipse group, which is operated  by an eastern company. This is a  silver-lead properly, and a considerable amount of ore has already  been taken out. The company expects to make a trial shipment at  an early date. Near by is the  Mohawk group. The ledge on the  property contains silver-lead ore.  "Work has been stopped during the  winter", but will -be resumed early  in tlie spring. . Somo distance away  and up the creek is the Pontiac  group, a free milling gold property,  opeivited by tho Pontiac Mining  Company. This company has expressed its intention of doing considerable development during the  coming season. The Alma group,  which is also in the same section,  has a. very -fine- showing of silver-  lead ore. This was recontly bonded  to eastern capitalists, and .active  .development will bo commenced  shortly. N  At the head of the creek are the  Black Bear .and "Wide "West groups,  probably'the best known groups of  the section. Both-of these have  very large bodies of low grade galena, and from the work'already  done upon them good results have  been obtained. They aro operated  by eastern capitalists. A propo-���  sitionis on foot to do more exten-*  sive development "during this year.  This section has shown up well  during the past year and this has  neeessa'rilj' affected the growth'of  the town of Camborne. A large  number- of miners have been  attracted here and a lively season  is expected, in the spring.  Christian Endeavor Meeting.  The young -people's societies of  christian endeavor held a rally  meeting at the Baptist church la9t  evening. The building was com:  fortably filled with members of the  three different societies of the city.  Two excellent papers were read.  Tlie first qneJ was contributed' by  George Broadley from the subject  "Tlie Needs', of .-the New Century."  The other * piaper, "which' was entitled "The-Opportunities of the New  Century,'-' was read by Misa M. Barry.  Both were exceedingly interesting  and were-a credit to their authors.  At the close- 'of the ��� meeting ^the  pastor, Rev-.-P. Wright, in V short  address gave many thoughts of encouragement to the members of the  society.  .    -   ' ���������   Y   Board of Trade Meeting.  ���'A\n adjourned-"-annual general  general' meeting."; of the Nelson  Board of Trade will be held at the  board rooms at ;S:80 o'clock this  evening.
