 Mineral Production of British Columbia in 1900
Mineral Protluotlon of Kootenay \r\ 1900
The Accident Was Due to Approach-
the Heavy Grade at an Excessive Rate of Speed.
The case of Peters vs. the Nelson
Tramway Company, in which the
plaintiff was seeking to recover
damages from the tramway com-,
pany for tlie loss of an arm, resulting from the accident which
marked the opening of the tramway service in tliis city, was virtually disposed of yesterday when
the special jury brought in a verdict iu favor of the defendants.
Great interest was manifested in
the case, wliich occupied the past
four .days of the supreme court
Mr. justice  Drake completed  his
charge to the jury about 3:30, wheu
he submitted  a  list of  eight ques-
E tions to tlie jurors.    In his  charge
he reviewed  the main . features  of-
the case for  the  plaintiff  and  the
manner iu which it was met by the
defence.    The  plaintiff's   case  was
brought  under   the   common  law,
and  was  rested  upon Jive  points:
(1) That  the   defendants'   car   was
coo heavy; (2) that the  grade  was
too  great; (3) that  the  car  brake
was insufficient; (4) that  the operating  power  Avas 'insufficient, and
(5) that the curve on  the grade iu
question \".was    improperly     constructed.    The court explained that
while   under   the   common   law  a
master   was   obliged   to   take   all
' reasonable     precautions    for     the
safety of workmen, and responsible
to'the extent of supplying  efficient
apparatus  and also.,for failure to
use   it   in  a  proper  manner,  employers   were  not liable for  accidents   to    employees    caused     by-
ignorance or neglect On the part of
fellow servants.    . Every workman
was'more or less subjeet to certain;
... dangers and motormen were liable
to certain risks.     Workmen  were
supposed to undertake  such  risks
provided no extraordiny  risk  was
introduced.    It was for  the jurors
to apply the principles .-mentioned
in  the evidence   submitted.     The
court then reviewed  the  evidence
bearing upon the manner in wliich
the   car,   upon   which   motorman
Peters was engaged, approached the
top of the grade in  question,  aud
iutimated that it approached the
grade at a very much higher late of
speed   than  it  should  have  done.
The matter of the brakes upon the
car was then discussed and the fact
commented upon that  Peters  and
another   employee   named  Wilson
• had been instructed to adjust the
brakes  upon  the  car  in question^
=wliich="tlrey="JTad     nl^leetlU^tTf
do.    The brakes were not adjusted,
but the omission was not  reported.
With respect  to  the  allegation of
insufficient power the court pointed
out that evidence had beeu adduced
to the  effect  that in  view  of the
high rate of speed at which the car
took the grade no amount of power
could have held it.      The court dismissed the contention  with respect
tothe  faulty  construction  of  the
curve in not having  the outer  rail
raised    upon    the  weight   of   Mr.
Campbell's evidence  and  with  respect to any responsibility  on the
part of the company for faulty construction  of  the  roadbed  said no
responsibility  would  lie  unless   it
could be shown that  tho  company
departed from   the   advise  of   its
engineer  and  that  as  a  result of
such  departure  tlie  accident   was
caused.    It;  was sufficient for  tlie
company to sho w in  such  matters
that   a   competent    engineer   was
engaged*and his advice followed.
Tiie case for the defence was reviewed briefly after which'a list of
did such defects arise from any
negligence of the employees of the
defendants ? Answer—Have not
found that any defects existed.
4. Were competent men employed
to construct the car line aud install
the apparatus ?   Answer—Yes.
5. To what cause if any do you
attribute the accident? Answer—
In permitting the car to attain to
such a pace* before reaching the
heaviest grades.
0. Was'the plaintiff guilty of contributory negligence ? Answer—
7. Did the plaintiff undertake the
risks incurred with his employment
knowing the dangers attending it?
8. Damages ?   Answer—None.

Seattle, Wash., May 22.—Advices from Lynn Canal ports are to

Revenue Cutter Grant Wrecked.
Victoria, May,22.—The United
States revenue cutter Grant, captain Tozier, ran'...ashore on an uncharted rock in Saanich inlet at 8
o'clock this morning. She struck
on her bilge well forward, and tore
a bad hole in her hhll, the inrush of
water filling her 'forward part to
the main deck, throwing up her
after part, leaving it dry. The crew
gathered together what effects they
could, and/went; ashore in the cutter's boats, arriving in Cole bay,
where they are camped at 9 a.m.
Lieutenant Sadler came to the city
to get assistance, t He ..returned
witli a wrecking outfit at 5 p. ro.
The Grant was on a special mission
in that water, presumably to investigate smuggling, when she
stranded. She is in a bad position,
but lieutenant Sadler thinks 9he
can be saved.
Southampton, May 22.—The enp
challenger with king Edward and
party on board was totally dismasted today by a squall off Cowes,
Isle of Wight. The king, who was
on deck, had a miraculous escape.
Topmast, mainmast and bowsprit
were broken short off. The yachts
were to be sent today racing over a
triangular course similar to one of
the American cup courses; The
eutrance into the race of tlie yawl
Sibarita, about 99 feet over all,
placed the captains of the two
Shamrocks under the .necessity of
driving their boats at full speed in
order to make any creditable show
and promised king Edward an opportunity of witnessing the smartest race of the series. There was
delay in establishing a starting
line. The wind freshened considerably aud blew twelve to thirteen knots, with the prospects of
magnificent racing.
King Edward, desiring to take a
more active part in the proceeding
than was possible from the deck of
the Erin, was taken on board the
challenger, accompanied by Sir
Thomas Lipton. While theyachts
were maneuvering for the start a
squall came up without the slightest Avarning and the bowsprit of
the challenger was carried away
short. The extra strain thus
thrown on the topmast proved too
much for the spar and it whipped,
broke nnd doubled off to leeward,
carrying  the  whole  weight of the
jackyard and the gear over the side
in a terrible tangle. Almost as the
topmast fell the great steel mast,
weighing over two tons and carrying spars and gear weighing an additional three or four tous, .swayed
for a moment and then .by great
good fortune plunged over the side
into the water with the sound of
breaking wire and tearing gear in
the air.
The members of the royal party
were seated on deck, close to the
companion; way. ■ The king - was
showing keen pleasure at watching
the fight which captain Sycamore
was making for 'the advantage at
the start. The yacht was racing
along at a formidable angle aud the
sloping deck with* a mere fringe of
rail seemed a rather perilous place
for the accommodation of-the visitors. As the wreckage swept the
deck it was. most astonishing that
no one was hurt. For a moment or
two the situation appeared to be
very grave. The .king maintained
his composure. ; Most of the head
men went overboard. Within
five seconds of the disaster the
Shamrock I bore around to render
assistance, when she in turn was
caught by the squall and her topsail spar collapsed,'making her helpless. The press ; tug following the
racers ranged, alongside the helpless yachts, arid a torpedo, boat
which was in the vicinity and the
Sybarita sent boats to the scene.
In answer to a hail captain Syca:
more sent the reassuring message
that all on board:had escaped without injury.
As quickly, as .possible the king
arid the royal party were transferred to the Erin, and later the
king, accompanied by Sir Thoma9
Lipton,- landed at Southampton en
route to London. The crews of the
racers set about clearing away the
wreckage. Owing to the unwieldy
nature of the spars aud gear, it was
found impossible to get them on
board, and they were cut away and
allowed to sink after the buoys had
been placed to mark the place. The
yachts were then towed back to
await a decision as to what should
be done towards repairing them.
London, May 22.—The Shamrock
disaster caused much excitement in
London, and there were many inquiries at Marlborough House.
There is much speculation as to
how the accident will affect the cup
races. The editor of the Yachting
World says there ia no reason why
the yachts cannot be speedily repaired and continue their trial and
go to America on the date arranged.
However, he is not sanguine of success. The damage to the challenger
is estimated at £2000, as nearly
every scrap oi her gear is gone.
Southampton, May 22. — Sir
Thomas Lipton fears that it will be
impossible to repair the Shamrock
II. in time for the races and it looks
as if the contest was 'off for this
year. Sir Thomas will cable to the
New- York Yacht Club a long
account of the accident with an expression of doubt if he will be able
to fulfill his engagement. Nothing
can be finally settled until the conference which is to be held between
the builders and Mr. Watson, the
designer of the Shamrock II.
$300,000, ifc was different. In small
work the surplus stock which could
not be avoided would eat up any
margin which might exist between
what the goods could be purchased
for in the east and what they could
be secured for iu Nelson; and in
addition to this there was an advantage in dealing with* merchants
at short range.
May Resort to Conscription.
New York, May 22.—An ominous statement of the question of
conscription was made by lord Raglan, the under secretary for war,
last night, says the Tribune's London correspondent. Speaking afc
the united services he said that
Englishmen must not be frightened
at the idea of conscription. There
were only two ways of getting men
for the army—they could pay the
men and make their lot comfortable, or they, could' press them, as
paying them had already been declared impracticable. In this connection it is interesting to "note
that the militia ballot has just
been put into operation in Guernsey to strengthen the local militia.
Guernsey is the only portion of
the British empire where conscription is in force.

Talking Over the School-Vote.
At the meeting of the school
trustees last evening some informal
discussion took place with respect
to the provincial government's vote
of $5000 for new school buildings.
It has been estimated that the
necessary extensions to the- school
buildings, including the installation
of a steam heating plant, will cost
about $10,000 and some arrangement will be attempted whereby
the necessary enlargement can be
tion. The trustees have as yet received no notification as to whether
they or the city council will have
the spending of the government
vote, but as soon as the point is
cleared up an effort will be made

of the trustees and members of the

OF   A   MINE.
At 100 Feet Depth the Ore is Changing
From Galena to Copper With
Increased Values.
M. A. Green of Rossland, the engineer for the Montana Gold Mining
Compauy, which has in hand the
development of the Blue Bird group
of claims near Deer Park, was in
Nelson yesterday consulting government agent John A. Turner with a
view to securing some assistance
towards the building of a wagon
road to the Montana company's
pany is to a considerable extent an
eastern Canadian concern, much of
the treasury .stock having been
taken up by residents of ..Hamilton,
Ontario, and unless tlie company's
engineer is very wide in his estimate the shareholders have a very
valuable property in the Blue Bird
group. "Up to date about 700 feet
of work has been done upon the
property, which has given a deptli
of 100 feet upon the vein. The
ledge upon wliich the work has
been done has so far maintained a
uniform size of about three
feet, but the character of tho
ore appears to be changing as
depth is attained. At the outset
the company considered that it had
a silver-lead property in the Blue
Bird, the oro in the upper portions
of the ledge being chiefly galena,
smelter tests upon which give returns of $34 to the ton after making
allowance for the customary
smelter deductions. Sufficient work:
has been done to demonstrate that
there is a considerable body of this
galena ore, and the company has
now under consideration the erection of a 50-ton concentrator, irrespective of what greater depth
upon the property may disclose.
Three propositions are being considered by the company for the
erection of the concentrator and it
is expected that it will be in operation this fall with every prospect
of sufficient ore being blocked out
by that time to keep it going to its
utmost capacity.
With respect to the change
whicli is being noticed in tho character of the ledge matter in the 100-
foot level it is all on the right side.
The  galena appears  to  be giving
place to iron, and a recent assay
from the ledge showed 43-100 ounces
gold, 25 ounces silver and within a
fraction of 3 percent copper. Should
further work show that these values are maintained it would mean
that the.copijerjralues,would cover
tlie' cost' of smelting, leaving the
gold and silver values to cover the
cost of mining aud returns upon
AU told, the Montana Gold Mining Company has expended about
$20,000 in developing the property,
but sufficient remains in the, treasury to carry on its present plan of
development for another twelve
months. As to smelting facilities',
the property is situated about an
equal distance from the Trail and
Nelson smelters, so that it altogether depends upon; the demand
for this character of ore which
smelting point will be utilized.

W. Ii. Crosby of Ofallon, Illinois,
today won the championship shooting trophy and a purse of $1000 on

is believed to be without precedent.
Crosby killed 109 birds straight.
The match, which began yesterday,

today, while H. J. Sconce failed to
get his 103rd. When Crosby killed

Knoxvillk, Tennessee, May 22.—

commenced at once, and that he
thinks he has good grounds for his
conviction, as was evidenced by the
fact that shortly before he left on
the Kaslo boat he authorized the
engagement of 50 men at once for
the work, and placed orders with
several Nelson wholesale houses for
respectable bills of supplies.
In speaking of the immediate
construction, mayor Carlson said
the work would furnish employment for about 700 men, which
would hold out for the remainder
of the summer months, as it would
take fully five months to complete
the contract. His outfit was already on the ground, and pending
the recent shut-down upon the
grading contract he had been filling in. time in fixing up some portions of the roadbed which was
built during the race between the
Great Northern and Canadian Pacific to secure control of the Lardeau business.
Touching the cpiestion of supplies, Mayor Carlson said ho would
buy where he could get goods the
cheapest, and in his opinion the
bulk of the supplies would be purchased from Nelson's wholesale
merchants. He had had rather
extensive dealings with them
in the past and his experiences had been altogether satisfactory. His contract was comparatively small in the way of
railway construction, which would
preclude the policy so generally
adopted of having all supplies purchased in the eastern markets and
shipped in direct. In the case of
large contracts such a policy had,
doubtless, much to commend it to
the railway contractor, but on a
small piece of work, involving some

STRATFORD  VELLUM  The only railways built in Brit-  :V's ���"��� Columbia this year will be roads  that will  help maintain values  in  ���' Kootenay and Yale districts.    None  vwill tear down one section to build  ' up another.    In  other words, they  , will be industrial and not ''political"  railways.  The tconstruction of the  Lardo  ; railway means an  expenditure of  over a quarter, of a million dollars  for wage9 alone.     The bulk of this  < money will be spent iu Kaslo and  , Nelson, which will help to make the  ' people of these two towns contented and happy.  No time should be lost in announcing that Nelson means to  build the silver-lead refinery on  Kootenay lake. Why should tlie  silver-lead mining districts continually pay tribute to cities afc a  distance. The more men employed  in Kootenay the more demand  there will be for mineral claims,  and the more mineral claims developed the more money there will  be in circulation.  The Irrepressible Quarantine Question.  To the Editor of The Tribune:  In mayor Fletcher's reply of the  20fch instant   through   a Trihune   representative to my letter,  he in-  timated thatTThad got~off wrong  with respect to reporting suspected  cases. Well, I am not the only one  that has got off wrong according to  his worship, as every, physician in  town with one exception holds the  same opinion as myself. I may  also state that when the secretary  of the provincial board of health  was in town only a few weeks ago  he was asked regarding this, and he.  said the only thing that could be  done was to report them as suspicious, as very rarely could a case be  reported definitely when first seen.  . The mayor cites section 74 of the  Health Act of 1897, which, however,: does not deal with the question at issue, but simply makes it  impossible for any person to wilfully allow dangerous diseases to  spread without making himself liable.  As Mr. Fletcher, being chief  magistrate of the city, should  know that the city health bylaw  which was passed last year reads  as follows: "Duties of medical  health officer, sub-section E., section  7. On receiving information of the  outbreak of any contagious, infectious or epidemic disease of a  dangerous character within the  city of Nelson, he (health officer)  shall visit without delay the spot  where the outbreak has occurred  and inquire into the cause and circumstances of such outbreak, etc.  Sub-section K., section 7: He shall  examine into all nuisances, sources  of filth and causes of sickness  within the city which may be injurious to the public health/etc."  What is meant by these sections?  That when the health officer receives information that there is  danger of the public health being  affected by contagious diseases lie  Is tho name of a  very line Correspondence paper  which we have in  all the fashionable  tints and sizes.

Berlin, May 22.���It is authoritatively announced that tlie powers will agree to require the present Chinese export duties to be  paid in gold, which is equivalent to  doubling the duties. The same payment will also probably be required  in the ease of the salt and opium  taxes. Germany is apparently  averse to interfering with the likin  dues, since they are too complicated  and require too much administrative machinery and too much mixing in tlie internal ..affairs of China.  Oilicials here admit that the powers  arc likely to divide into two groups  upon the mode of settlement, some  following Great Britain's idea of  a loan and others supporting payment through increased revenue.  It is not expected, however, that a  disagreement will disturb the present harmonious action.  SAVINGS BANK DEPARTMENT:  Interest allowed on  deposits.    Present rate  three per cent..  GRANGE V.

New    York,   May   22.���Geueral  Rafael Uribibe, the Colombian revolutionary leader, nojv in this city,  issued a  statement last night regarding the treatment of political  and military prisoners by the present   Colombian   government.     He  said: "The  penitentiary at  Bogota  is a small one and in it has been  crowded   more   than  200  political  prisoners,    besides    500    ordinary  criminals.    In  order to get to sleep  the prisoners have to take turns iu  lying down, as there is not enough  room  for all  to  lie down  at-once.  Their beds  are the damp, cold and  filthy pavementof the prison.   There  is neither water nor sanitary facilities.    The wretches'breath poisons  the air; and smallpox, dysentery and  typhus   fever   have   been playing  havoc among the unfortunate creatures.    These   statements   are  confirmed in the  records published by  the official, board of health.    Well-  known and prominent   men  have  been loaded with chains. ;  "Among the prisoners are a large  number of boys, from 10 to 14*  years old. The methods followed  for sending people to the duugeons  have been copied after those of the  inquisition; that is, by anonymous  denunciations. General Marceliano  Velz, the commander-in-chief, on  being appealed to by the prisoners,  and finding himself powerless to  put a stop to the horrors, resigned.  The government promised to release the prisoners if I would issue  a manifesto advising the liberals to  stop fighting. In spite of the fact  that the government has not kept  its word, the fighting will cease for  a time. When, however, the liberals have succeeded in gathering  sufficient money and ammunition  the fighting will bo resumed. When  it begins again I shall return to  Colombia and lead the liberal  army."   Switchmen Did Not Strike.
