Ct MONDAY MORNING, MAY 20,  1901  PRICE FIVE CENTS  IT LOOKS LIKE A BIG MINE  HAS   A   FORTY-FOOT   LED3E   OF  FREE MILLING ORE.  May and Jennie on Forty-nine Credited  With Being a Richer Property  Than the Ymir.  Although the officers of the company developing the May aud  Jennie properties continue to preset-vo tlie greatest secrecy with  respect to the manner in which this  Forty-nine creek property is developing, much continues to leak  out iu support of the contention of  many that the May aud Jennie will  develop into the greatest free-  milling mino iu British Columbia.  People who believed that nothing  good could bo found on Forty-nine,  looked upon the bonding of the  May and Jennie group as one��of  the mining ventures in which all  mining operations would be performed upon.the bank accounts of  confiding investors, aud they regarded the erection of a large mill  on the property as a process of  rubbing it in. In cho face of this  adverse opinion, howover, work  upon the property has been pushed  ahead systematically, and the May  nnd Jennie now" ranks third in  Nelson district as a labor-employing property.  Since all information as to development is carefully withhe'd, ifc  is difficult to verify the rumors as  to tho extent and richness of the  May and Jenuio ore bodies as  opened up. A prospector was in  Nelson yesterday, however, who  visited the company's workings ou  the   Gold  Bell claim,  arid  at  this  ^poiht he asserts  the company  has  tapped a ledge at  depth, .which on  "his own, measurement ..was forty  feet wide., The. character of Lhe  ore ihthisrledge differs from that  encountered in the first workings,  and'so far as he. could seo tho entire ledge matter was free milling,  from which gold could bo  panned.  ' All the company's assaying, however, is done oh the ground, and results kept as quiet as possible, but  This Tribune's informant .states  tliat there we're portions of the big  ledge whicli" he was told went as  high as $100 to tho ton. If tliis is  correct, it no doubt accounts for  the reports heard from time to  time thafc the owners of the May  and Jennie have a bigger property  than the Ymir, and should stimulate interest in Forty-nine creek  property.           Frank O'Brien has returned from  a trip to the Arlington mine near  Erie. He reports that the 30-ton  ���mill���whicli���the���owners���of���the  Arlington aro erecting "will be complete and iu operation by tho first  of June if tho balance of tho machinery now on the way arrives  -within the expected time. The  mill is being installed more with a  view tb thoroughly testing the ore  bodies of the Arlington than anything else, aud will be connected  with the mine by a tramway, construction upon which is also well  advanced.  May Be Hanged in July.  Fred Collins, who was sentenced  to death at the Golden assize for  the murder of -Arthur. Dardo,  known as the "Banjo Kid," was  brought to Nelson last evening in  charge of constable Bowers of Fort  Steele. The murder, whieh took  place in Peterboro on October 9lhu,  was the outcome ;of a drunken row,  hi whicli the Kid used a bottle on  Collins' head, aud in return Collins  shot the Kid in his room in a Peterboro hotel. The defense entered at  the..'.'. tt'iel was insanity, it being  claimed that the blow received by  -Collins the night before'thb, killing,  unhinged his mind. If the law is  allowed.to take its course Collins  will be hanged on July 20th.  Getting Beady to Leave.   .  Pekin, May 19.���General Chaffee  at midnight last night issued his'  farewell order ending tho American  relief expedition in China. The  American troops will board the  transport next Wednesday at Taku  arid Thursday will leave direct for  Manila. M. Pichon, tlie French  minister, left for homo tliis morning. A meeting of the foreign ministers will be held tomorrow, but it  is   not   likely that  much will  be  accomplished, as some of the ministers have not yet received instructions from their home governments.  The ministers, commenting upon  the blame attached to them by the  people for their slowness, say that  as a matter of /act they are powerless to act without orders from  home. One of the foreign ministers  told the correspondent of the Associated Press yesterday, that he had  been instructed to co-operate with  another minister. He found, upon  consultation with his colleagues,  that their instructions were absolutely different from his. Consequently co-operatiou was practically impossible.  The Servian Mix-up.  Belgrade, May 19.��� All rumors  regarding the abdication of king  Alexander, the resignation of the  cabinet and tho banishment of  queen Draga, growing out of the  recent, sensational experiences of  the Servian royal family, are. declared to be without foundation.  Professor Cantacuzeneof Bucharest,  who was summoned with. Dr.  Wertheimer of Vienna, announced  that queen Draga presents all the  symptoms of false or nervous  pregnancy and that the rapid development of the symptoms were  brought about by the advice given  her majesty by Dr. . Caulet who, in  urging her to lead a sedentary life,  encouraged the queen in the opinion  that she was enciente and produced  au abnormal condition calculated  to mislead both herself and her  entourage. - The two specialists declare that queen Draga is sufferiug  from netritid, '.but that her condition is not serious.  A Fatal Accident.  Youngstown, Ohio, 'May 19.���  Two men are dead aud three are  expected to die as the result of an  accident in the Bessemer depart-'  /ment of' the National Steel Company's plant today. The-accident  was caused by the cover of a mammoth converter letting go and  allowing thirteen tons of molten  metal to flow oyer the mill. - The  dead men are Hungarians.  SAYS SUPPOSlN'^obW'tvGO  Mayor Replies to Dr. Hall,  Nothing has yet been done in the  matter of removing the friction  which exists between tlie medical  health officer and some bf tiie other  doctors in the'eity. Mayor Fletcher,  was seen yesterday by a Trihune  representative, but aside from his  intimation that Dr. Hall had got  off wrong with respect tb the reporting of suspected cases ho ,had  no information to give out.  In speaking of Dr. Hall's letter  the mayor remarked that Dr. Hall,  appeared to be amazed at what he  had said at the recent meeting of  the board of health with respect to  the reporting of cases of infectious  .diseases; buLafter reading the.  doctor's letter he found nothing in  it to make him change his opinion  or in any way affecting the truth  of what he had said. The mayor  remarked that the doctor and himself appeared to be working under  different authorities. The. doctor  cited the health regulations of 1S9G,  ���.which were framed prior to Nelson's  incorporation, while he had cited  the Health Act whicli was . passed  in 1897. Dr. Hall, having been a  member of the city council, should  have been aware of the fact that  the city possessed a health bylaw,  section 10 of which is practically  word for word with section 74 of  Provincial Health Act, 1897, and  reads as follows:  Wliouuvur any phyHioiuii known that any porson whom lie la called upon to visit is infected  wilh smallpox, scarlet fever, diphtheria, typhus  or l-yphoid tu\ ur, or cholera, such person shall  (.subject iu rn o o( refusal or neglect to tho pun-.  allitH provided for by sub-?ection *? of section !���;)  within Iwontj-f jur houi\-3 give .written nolico  thereof to I he mcdioal health olllcor (if any) of  the munio pality or outlying district in which  such disen��\ d person is, and, if there be no med-  ic;il lioali li ulllcer, then to tho local board.  "The doctor seems very much  concerned,", added mayor Fletcher,  "about the dignity of the profession., I am afraid the profession is  very much degraded in every community that boasts of a. health  officer. If Dr. Hall, or others who  have- complaints to make, would  take the moro dignified course of  putting them in writing to the  local health board, instead of airing  them in the street or in private,  there would be less friction and not  the same opportunities for exaggeration and misrepresentation.  Tlie doctor's insinuation against  some, of the city's paid officials,  without making a definite charge,  places a value on his opinions wifch  reference to those matters whicli  needs little comment."  WILL NOT AFFECT NELSON  SYMPATHETIC    STRIKE    BEPORT  OFFICIALLY  DENIED.  Trouble   at   the   Le   Roi    Company's  Smelter at Northport Will Not Involve Canadian Smelters. ���  The minors curreut on Saturday  to the effect that a strike was pending among the smelter men which  would result in shutting down the  Nelson aud Trail smelters are altogether incorrect. Some trouble has  cropped up at the LoRoi company's  smelter at Northport, and the  alarmists immediately started the  report that a sympathetic strike  would be made at Nelson and Trail.  Concerning the trouble at the  Northport smelter there are two  versions. The company's story is  that the members of the smelter  union were endeavoring to secure  tho discharge pf the foreman, who  was not a member of the union;  but the" union men claim that there  is an organized attempt being made  to break up their union, and that  in any event it would suit the purpose of the Le Roi company to keep  the smelter shut down for a time,  and place the responsibility for the  shut-down upon the union. The  Northport union does its banking  in Rossland, and a trip of the  union's officer's to. make a deposit  furnished the grounds, for the  .report that their mission to this  side was to secure a sympathetic  strike of.the custom smelters at  Nelson and Trail.   - .'  James Wilks, who in the absence  of Chris Foley looks, after his work  as a member of th'e executive of the  Western Federation, was seen by a  Tribune representative last evening with respect to the Northport  situation. He said-he had not been  fully iuformed with respect to the  situation,- but f irpnr sucli..knowledge.  as he had the ciirjrent repdrts were  very wide of the'truth', both as to"  tho causes for the trouble aud its  probable exfceut. Upon one poiut,  however, Mr. Wilks could speak  definitely. There was no ground  for the report of a sympathetic  strike at Nelson and Trail, and in  this respect any trouble which may  be brought about at Northport  would have no bearing whatever  upon the Nelson aud Trail smelters.  Personally, Mr. Wilks said, he did  not favor sympathetic strikes, such  as were suggested, arid with respect  to the Hall Mining' aud Smelting  Compauy he said the officers of the  union were fully satisfied with tho  treatment received, and throughout  the entire Nelson district the relations between the unions and the  mining companies were more  _cordial_than_ever_lbefore,_and_iiu  marked contrast with the conditions  prevailing at Rossland between the  union and some of the employing  companies.  Tlio Smelter-Men's ^ Union at  Northport, with which'.the present  difficulty has arisen,~was organized  by Mr. Wilks and is ~'a very strong  organization, and at the request of  its members Mr. Wilk| Twill leave  Nelson today for- Northport. ���        .  ,   Passed His - Last Gold Brick.  OakIjAND, May 19.--r;peserted by  his partners in crinie^raen in rthe  making of whose fortunes he was  instrumental, "Big "Foot" David  Gordon, reputed the cleverest gold  brick man "of America,' became a  maniac at San Quentin. From the  penitentiary he was transferred to  the asylum for the insane at Napa,  where he died April 2nd, and was  buried in'the asylum graveyard.  Gordon was* one of the most  remarkable criminals of the age.  With his pals in the Eastern States  he is credited with having cleaned  up millions in the gold brick business, and it was not until he came  to the'Coast and established headquarters iu Oaklaud-that the police  finally landed him behind .the bars.  It was early in 1890 that the  Oakland authorities were advised  that a trio of the gold-brick men  were making headquarters here and  fleecing bankers from the country  towns. Chief of police Hodgkins,  then on the detective force, found  that in a few months the men had.  cleaned up something over $100,000,  and on April 22, 1890, he arrested  Gordon at Fifth- and Market, San  Francisco. A few days later Gordon's pals, Root, alias Raymond,  and Joseph Leeke, alias Wood, were  taken into custody after a hard  fight in Alameda, where they were  iu hiding.  Chief nodgkina had evidence  that the men buncoed banker Little of Dixon out of $10,000; S. A.  Hofstra, a prosperoiis rancher of,  Santa Clara counts', $18,000; banker  Richards of Napa, $10,000, nnd a  prosperous mining man from Sacramento counts', $25,000. There were  others, but they refused to give  testimony against the accused.  Leeke, who acted the Indian in the  gold-brick game, could not be identified, and was released. Gordon  and Root were held for trial, and  Root forfeited $7500 bail to escape  an appearance before a jury.' Gordon was finally convicted and was  sent to San Quentin for 10 years.  Prospective' Mining Boom.  New York, May 18.���-Evidence is  not lacking, says the Tribune's correspondent, that there will be, a  South African mining boom before  many weeks. o Johannesburg is  gradually filling, the mines are  reopening, ���* and arrangements are  making for the reorganization of  the government of the town. The  reopening of the "Kaffir Circus"  would have at least one good result.  It would engross the attention of  the capitalist class and allow it less  leisure for meddling in the government of the new, British colonies.  Some of sir Alfred Milner's recent  appointments .iu the Transvaal  have excited much criticism. The  eight powerful groups of capitalists have been represented too conspicuously in these appointments,  and a feeling of distrust has been  created which tends to retard the  pacification of South Africa." It is  said that general. Botha, as soon as  he learned that sir Alfred Milner  was about to leave South Africa,  sent a mounted: messenger to gen-,  eral Kitchener with a view to the  reopening of peace negotiations,  General Botha wanted to communicate with Mr.; Kruger, but lord  Kitchener said he could' have no  dealings with the. ex-president.  TELECRAMS IN BRIEF FORM  From Various Sources.  ST. ALBANS, Vermont, 18.���  -Two hundred anil fifty ..machinists  and metal workers employed in the  locomotive department of the Central Vermont Railroad shops struck  here today, a.nine hour work day  having been refused by tho company. ' *  VIENNA, 18.���A story is current  here that queen Draga of Servia  took poison when the king discovered the situation caused by the  conflicting statements regarding  her health, and that the queen is  dangerously ill from the effects of  the poisoning.  ELIZABETH, New York, 18.���  All the machinists and employees  in the shops of the Central Railroad  of-New���Jersey���here���went-oufc-on-  strike today for a nine-hour work  day at the same rate of pay that  has been given for a ten-hour day.  The company had answered their  demands by saying it could not  grant their requests.  LONDON, 18.���At the Gatwick  spring meeting today, Sherness,  with J. Reiff up, won the Prince's  handicap of 100 sovereigns. Sweet-  sounds was second and First Principal third. Eight horses ran.  Cyncnal was first, Faisand-Or second and Claqueqe third in the race  for the Marlborough stakes of 500  sovereigns.        .-,"  Immense Railroad Profits.  San Francisco, May 19.���The  Southern Pacific continues to make  large gains in earnings. It has averaged more than $0,400,000 per  month in gross earnings so far the  present fiscal year. The latest  statement on the subject,-issued by  chairman E. H.-IIarriman. of the  executive committee shows the receipts and expenditures for the first  nine months of the present fiscal  year, or from July 1, ,1900, to  March 31, 1901, inclusive. During  that period the. )gross receipts  amounted to $57;708,277, an increase of $5,581,440 over the same  period of the year before. Operating expenses were $30,294,641, an  increase of $2,052,551. Net earnings aggregated $21,413,580, or an  increaso of $2,928,895.  Mr. Harriman's statement of  Union Pacific earnings for the same  period shows gross earnings of  $32,842,044, an increase of $3,184,140.  Expenses,including taxes,amounted  to$18,372,908, an increaseof $2,357,-  289. The surplus amounted to  $14,409,130, an increase of $820,858.  A PUZZLE FOR THE POWERS  HOW THE CHINESE   INDEMNITY  IS TO BE RAISED.  Boers  Being Gradually Rounded  Up.  Ford's Weekly Review of European Conditions.  New York, May 19.���In a dispatch dated London, 1 a. m., I.  N. Ford, correspondent of the New  York Tribune, says: The China  situation remains enveloped in fog,  and there are no signs that - it will  , be cleared speedily. The principle  of indemnity has been accepted,-but  ways and means by which it can be  paid'baffles the ingenuity of. the  financial experts. The Chinese  proposals for the payment in thirty  annual installments covered by a  moderate increase of the maritime  customs are not satisfactory to  Germany, but there is no ground  for suspicion that the' Berlin government is raising objections capriciously for the sake of prolonging the occupation. The German  emperor and "count Von Waldersee  are evidently eager to bring about  a settlement, as they are weary of  the negotiations, but they insist  upon having a full guarantee for  the payment of the money with in-.  , teres t.  The Chinese government is not in  haste and there is practical reason  for delay. The Manchurian dynasty represented the anti-foreign  feeling before Pekin was occupied,  and there is no evidence that its  influence has been impaired by the  disaster   which" has    befallen   the  ' empire. It has succeeded in regain;  ing prestige by allowing the negotiations to.drag along, and offering  resistance to the demands of- the  ; powers, and   by 'exhausting their.  . patience, " It has recovered in' this  -way the.reputation,of being*hostile  to foreign influence and of standing  tenaciouslyvfor Chinese interests.  ! /        " ������        '    "     -  Slowly Approaching the.End.   -  The arrival .of' sixteen hundred  voluuteers at Southampton aud the  cordial welcome - offered to two  companies at St. Martin's town hall  and the lower hamlets are incidents  indicating that the war is slowly'  but surely coming to an end. Dis:  patches from South Africa point'in  the same direction^- The. best sign  is - the waning sympathy for the  Boers now in the field on purposeless operations. <  Bands of guerillas are still holding out, but the commanders are no  longer hampered by treacherous  spies and they have increased  facilities for finding out what is  going on and for making captures  of-men, arms_and_stores.���A-fresh-  incursion of Boers in Cape Colony  is explained by the necessity of  obtaining supplies. If the remainder  of commandoes are not overtaken  when pursued the British gradually  deprive them of horses and wear  them out by driving them constantly from place to place. The  refuge camps are filled with women  \vhose fathers, husbands and  brothers are prisoners and whose  ardor for the Boer cause is yielding  to intense longing for the return of  the burghers. Lord Kitchener's  work cannot be called brilliant, but  it is done thoroughly. District  after district of the Transvaal and  the northern section of the Orange  Rivor Colony is being swept and  tho Boers are being harassed by  constant movement.  King Edward's Tact.  Since the royal family is out of  everything this year, there . is, no  season. "The king, instead of  setting the style for country-bouse  and week-end parties and increasing  the atteudance of smart people at  the race course,'; is now engrossed  in state" affairs,7 the renovation of  palaces and the-raihor details of in-  vestitude and decorations. He will  receive sir Alfred Milner at Marlborough House precisely as queen  Victoria welcomed lord Roberts at  Osborne and will set the seal of  royal approval upon the public  appreciation of the high commissioner's services. This is new proof  of the king's desire to follow his  mother's example just as his decision that hpr birthday shall be  celebrated and not his own, and is  fresh evidence of his tact. The  king's influence on public affairs is  likely to be more potent than hers  because   he    is   more   neutral-   in  politics.  While lord - Salisbury and Mr.  Chamberlain are singled out for the  honor of escorting,sir Alfred Milner  to Marlborough House, their relations with the king are official and  impersonal. The king is. not likely  to consider lord Salisbury's wishes  when he persists in retiring from  office and the selection of , his successor is necessary. Nobody knows  whether Mr. Chamberlain stands as  high with king Edward as he did with  queen Victoria. The king is a true  non-partisan, and has no favorites  among statesmen and politicians.  The Cup Challenger.  The sporting press today take  doleful views of the chances of the  Shamrock II for winning the America's cup. All conclusions based  upon the performance of the yacht  are premature. Captain Sycamore  was not satisfied with the sailing  arrangements even before Mr. Fife's*  boat ran away from him, and he  also suspected that Mr. Watson's  boat was leaking. Experts , who  have" been favored with a close inspection of the new yacht when she  was docked at Southampton assert  that there "are no secrets 'of construction, and that she is simply an  enlarged Solent 30-footer with a  deeper fin and with the bulk of  .lead at, the forward end of it.  Sportsmen describe Mr. Watson's  boat as unfit for racing during -the  recent trial,' but are not confident  that she cau be tuned up against  the older Shamrock" for a convincing demonstration of" superior  speed. 0    .      __L   Miscellaneous Notes.  " The reports of scientific parties  observing the eclipse of the sun are  still incomplete and are less satisfactory than had been hoped,- al-  , though some successful photographs,  of the corona have been taken.  The   death   of   lord   Rosebery's  .mother, the duchess of Cleveland;  at the advanced age of 82, is re-,  ported rfrom   Germany.   She   was  Ithe author of "The Roll-of Battle  Abby", and was- an.industrious  reader, lord Rosebery inheriting  from her his strong literary abilities.

She is resting well."  At 9 o'clock the following bulletin was issued: "Mrs. McKinley's  physicians report that she has had  a good day and progress since  morning is satisfactory." President  McKinley is in receipt of cablegrams from the king of England,  president Loubet of France and  many other European potentates  inquiring as to Mrs. McKinley's  conditionr-^-Among���the "^callers-today on president McKinley was  Calvin S. Titus, the first American  soldier to mount the walls of Pekin,  who returned Friday on the transport Sheridan. ��� ���  To Race Today.  South AjMpton, May 19. ��� Sir  Thomas Lipton said to a representative of the Associated Press tonight: ���'Everything connected with  the Shamrock II is now in proper  condition for a thorough raciug  trial. I am determined that the  challenger and the former challenger shall fight it out in a manner to test their respective abilities  beyond all question. Both yachts  will be sent out tomorrow for a  long day's racing on the outside  course, aud an endeavor will be  made to test them on every possible  point of sailing in whatever weather offers. .The trials will be continued daily, and the Shamrock II  will be driven as hard as possible,  with the double purpose of pfeoving  her speed and of deciding any  weakness.'.' ���  Turkey Will Apologize.  Constantinople, May 19,���Ahmed Tewfik Pasha, Ottoman minister of foreign affairs, called upon  the ambassadors and notified them  of Turkey's desire to reestablish  the status quo on the postal question and her intention to send a  high functionary, probably the foreign minister himself, to apologize  for the violations of the foreign  mail bags. The ambassadors met  yesterday at the residence of the  German ambassador to determine  what attitude to adopt in view of  the complete submission of the sublime porte.

Is this  notice to charter mongers and railway-promoters that subsidies will  no longer be granted to railways  built on blue prints ?   If it is, it is  a notice that should meet with the  approval of the people.     Governments   should -be   willing to help  those who actually do something to  open up and develop new sections  of the country.     This is the policy  adopted by the government of this  province; a policy that is approved  by   the people, however much it  may   be   denounced   by   ther few  whose one idea of provincial development is. centered in the building  of the Coast-to-Kootenay railway,  a railway that if built would not  - touch any point in Kootenay. . The  provincial ��� government" offers"  to  furnish $4000 a mile towards the.  'cost of certain railways, provided  the    railways   are    built   wholly  within the "province, and that when  , built the province shall receive a  rate of interest on the money ad-  . vanced less by a half than  what"  would be paid on money borrowed  , from private capitalists.   The province also reserves the right to control rates on the roads so built and  the right to purchase after the expiration   of' twenty   years.      AU  these   reservations   are   what the  people have been demanding in the  past.     Now, that what the people  have been   demanding   has    been  made law, some of the politicians"  and some of the newspapers who  -have,-in-the-past,���been-loudcst���in  making   these   demands   say   the  government has "gold-bricked" the  province, and the majority of the  members of the legislature are being  denounced   because   of   their unwillingness to allow the interests of  the people to  become secondary to  the interests  of a few men who  have never built a mile of railway  in this or any other country.

One of these  smelters is at Trail and the other is  at Nelson. Then why should the  works at which the product of  these smelters is to bo refined be  built at the Coast or in theEist?  W_hy should the proposed lead refinery be built outside of Kootenay?  Nelson cau secure the refinery if  only her people will pull together.  No point in the piovince is more  accessible to all tho silver-lead districts, and no point has better  transportation facilities. Tho City  of Nelson could afford to subscribe  for $100,000 of the share capital of  a company thafc meant'business.  Newspapers like the Slocan City  Drill and the Kaslo Kootenaian say  the laws enacted at the last session  of,the legislature were of no importance. The members of the legislature should be congratulated.  If the laws enacted are of no importance, no harm can result from  their enforcement.  W  00 .00 . 00 .00 . 00 .00 . 00  If James J.

Limited.  j The proposed railway from Midway to the Coast is no more important to the province than either of  the other four mentioned in   the  Railway Subsidy.Act.  Jits importance rests almost wholly on the  fact that it is a "political" railway.  Its charter was obtained by politicians, and they sold .it for a price to  another crowd of politicians. -These  politicians, in  turn,  hired another  crowd of politicians to secure provincial and. Dominion subsidies that  would go a long way toward covering . the  cost of   its  construction.  They failed to secure these subsidies, and now, according to their  newspaper organs, the province of  British Columbia is on the verge of  rPn" .  A 'par more important railway  to Kootenay is the proposed railway through East Kootenay from  north to south. When built it will  open a country in every way as  promising as that between Midway  aud the Coast. /Yet, .how many  newspapers in Kootenay are pre  dicting blue ruin if it is not bnilt  at once? Evidently this railway,  which will, benefit Kootenay when  built, is hob a "political".railway.  Another railway which is not  "political" is the proposed railway  from Vernon- to Midway. If built  it would give transportation facilities to the farmers of one of the  finest ranching _ districts' of ��� the  province. It would give the farmers, stock raisers) and fruit growers  of the Okanagan valley .easy access  to the mining camps of Southern  Yale and Southern Kootenay���  mining camps whose food suppies  come largely from points in - the  neighboring state of Washington.  How many newspapers are predicting that the business of the province will, of necessity, be at a stand-  stil until this road is built ? L Not  one I  Up north, where there is not a  mile of railway, but where is said  to ,be varied and great natural  resources, only awaiting capital to  transform them iuto dividend-paying industries, one of the proposed  railways���is���subsidized.���Were���it-  buil t, the - trade of both ��� Victoria  and Vancouver would be largely  increased, for they could have no  coihpetitors. Yet never a word is  said about the building of that road-  by the newspapers of Vancouver or  Victoria.  SLOCAN   MINING   NEWS.  Vancouver Island is a most important portion of the province. It  has immense deposits of coal ^aiid  other minerals, vast areas of forest,  and large tracts of fine farming  land. It has less than one hundred  miles of railway in all. One of the  roads mentioned in the. Railway  Subsidy Act, if built, would traverse the Island from end to end.  The building of the road could have  but one result���the bringing of  trade to Victoria. But how many  public meetings have been held in  that city to influence legislative  action regarding its building? Was  there one? The Island road, evidently, is no more "political" than  either of the other three above  mentioned.  Reports from the Wonderful are  most encouraging. The Sandon  Mining Review believes that this  property will turn out to be one of  the big mines of the district.  The' following-named mines  shipped from . Sandon- last week:  Slocan Star 120 tons, Last Chance  20, American Boy 20, aud Colonial  20.  The Payne has cut down the  working force to 40 men, all of  whom are employed on development woik.  J. A. Baker of Slocan City goes to  Denver, Colorado", as delegate from  the Slocan City Miners' Union to  the annual convention of the Western Federation of Miners.  According to the Silverton Sil-  vertonian the mine*? that ship from  Slo'can lake points have marketed  2786 tons of ore this year, of the  approximate " value of- $200,000.  Last year the total shipments were  4930 tons.  Electric power may be used for  operating machine drills at the  Reco and other mines near Sandon.  J. M. Harris is said to be willing to  put in the required plant.  P. L. Morgan was injured in a  'cave at the Queen Bess mine on  Friday.  ' The Sandon Paystreak is authority for the statement that a good  strike was made'in the upper tunnel of the Donnelley mine on  Wednesday.  Rumor has it that J. A. McDonald's ice cream parlors on Baker  street are the finest in the city.  rxzzzziaxxzxzxxxxxxxxxxzzxxxzzxxxxxxxxiixxx :xxxxx: xxxxx;  Women's Summer  Underwear  Summer Underwear in Cotton,  Lisle,   Wool   and   Silk,   with  'either short   or   long"  sleeves.

ALBANY'S STRIKE SETTLED  IT COST ALMOST SEVENTY THOUSAND DOLLARS.  Both Sides Made Material Concessions  and Both Claim Victory���Terms  of Agreement.  Albany, May 18.���The great  strike is over. A thousand men iu  five citie3 who have beeu idle for  seven days returned to work at  . noon. Forcy-six miles of track that  was rusted for a like period, except  where a guarded ear spotl over it,  began to be polished by the schedule-running cars. Three thous.md  members of the National Guard in  soggy clothes from a drenching rain  began preparations to go home.  The strike has been of twelve  days'duration and the total cost in  all ways to date is estimated as follows: Loss of life, two prominent  citizens; cost to company, $17,-  42-1.03; cost to strikers, $17,820;.  cost county, $33,700. Total, $08,-  943.03. The agreement���entered into  is as follows:  First,  the road will contiuuo to  recoguize and treat with any committee  of its employees repre=ent-  '"Ing organized or unorganized labor  , wl\en" they desire  to be  heard iu  refeience to any grievances.  Second, any nian who may bo  suspended or discharged by the  superintendent shall be entitled to  appeal to the executive couiuiitloe  of the company.  Third, conductors and motortnen  who exhibit their badges by pinning  them upon the lapels of their cjats  shJill be permitted to ride without  payment of fare on all cars opei ated  on a division on which conductors  ~ and motormen belong.  Fourth, inspectors ridiug on cars  shall not be registered as passengers  unless a pass is given.  Fifth, the road will pay all employees for time lost when they  have been suspended by the company and found not guilty.   ,  Sixth, there will be no discrimination against auy of the men on.  account of the strike of May 7th,  1901, but this shall not apply to  those under arrest charged with  the commission of unlawful or  riotous   acts   until,, the. executive  committee has given a hearing to  such perspns and shall have decided  that their is a leasonablo doubt of  their guilt.  * Seventh, the road is free to employ union or non-union men and  to discharge them for cause.  Eighth, the wages of the motor-  men, conductors, linemen aud pitmen shall be 20 cents per hour, and  of pitmen's helpers 17^ cents per  hour.  Ninth, the strikers agrde that in  consideration of the several agreements herein contained, if kept by  tho company, that the members of  the said divisions will discharge  their duty in au efficient, faithful  and skilled mauner.   v  Tenth, to reduce as much as  possible inconvenience to the  traveling public, it is agreed tliat  no proposition for a strike shall be  acted upon by any division at the  'same meeting at which it is introduced, but that at least 48 hours  shall elapse beforo such a proposition shall be voted upon. And if a  strike shall be ordered it shall not  take effect until at least six days,  have elapsed, after notice to the,  company, during which time the  employeesshall continue their work.  The non-union men brought here  to fill the places of the strikers will  unquestionably withdraw, although  the formal agreement does not mention them. The company declined  to agree to send them away, so a  member of the directorate says, but  ib is felt that service under the circumstances will bo so unpleasant  for them thafc they will voluntarily  withdraw.

However, the  British - officials  are  without auy accurate knowledge of  the terms offered by  the Panama  people,   and   they   incline   to  the  belief that financial and other difficulties will probably prevent the  Uuited States from adopting this  solution of the affair.    **lf it is advisable   to abrogate the Clayton-  Bulwer  treaty   on account of its  being   out of date,", said   a high  official,   "how   much    more    is    it.  necessary   to    annul    the   French  shore agreement, which  was  made  long    before   the   Clayton-Bulwer  treaty, and which has been a  millstone around the neck of Newfoundland."     Inquiries   reveal the fact  tliat negotiations to this end .are  progressing,   though slowly.     For  the first time iu -the late  negotiation France is said-to be exhibiting  a genuine desire to have the matter  settled and though perhaps at the  expense   of   concessions   to   other  parties Great Britain will endeavor  to meet her wishes.    The result of  the conferences  between Mr. Bond,  premier of Newfoundland,  and sir  Wilfrid Laurier, premier of Canada,  regarding     reciprocity    with    the  Uuited States has not yet been" com:  municated   to the   colonial   office,  though-colonial-secretary-Ghaniber-  liiin sincerely hopes that the reports  of Canada's assent to Mr.  Bond's  proposition are correct.
