NELSON, B. C, TUESDAY MORNING, MAY 21,  1901  PRICE FIVE CENTS  IT WAS A CASE OF FRAUD  CORDINGLY STOOD TO WIN IN  CASE OF FIRE.  Justice Drake Delivers His   Written  Judgment in the Nelson Furniture  Company's Insurance Suit.  Mr. Justice Drake yesterday delivered ii written judgment in tho  case of Cordingly, Purdy and It. AV.  Day in the'-Scottish Union aud  National Insurance Company, as  follows:  After the tiial had proceeded for  two days ifc was shown that the  plaintiffs, Cordingly aud Purdy, had  no interest in the subject matter of  tlie action, they having assigned all  their assets to Mr. Day as a trustee,  to realize thoir estate and pay their  creditor?, and any balance lef b was  to be paid to Cordingly and Purdy.  I was of the opinion that Day was  a necessary party and I directed  him to bo added. Mr. Day consented, understanding that ho would  not personally be liable for costs,  bub only the trust estate. The defendants knew before the action  was brought to trial thafc Mr. Day  was assignee, for they so plead in  their defence. They ought to have  objected to the institution of the  action before putting all parties to  the expense of a trial. Sue lliistiu  vs. Tobin, 49, s.c. ch. 2G2. If Mr.  Day had declined to be made a  plaintiff I should have dismissed  the action, bub as 1 think that there  l?v;.vo been errors on both sides I  siiall in this case not make Mr. Day  perso'-..illy liable for costs.  No\Vr, with regard to tlie action  itself, tlie jury finds tliat there was  fraud and misrepresentation and a  false statement; in the plaintiil's.  application for insurance. Insurance is merfely an indemnity for  actual loss. Some people consider  that over-valuation is of trifling  importance, but it becomes of  serious importance when it induces  insurance companies to tako risks  and permit other insurances to be  effected to au amount which will  induce dishonest persons to seb fire  to tlie property insured, and if a  total loss occurs they are enabled  to make a profit out of what should  be au indemnity only. Mr. justice  Taschereau, iu giving judgment in  " the supreme court iu North British  and Mercantile Insurance Company  vs. Towuville, 25 S. C. p. 193, says:  "Over-insurance is ono of the greatest sources of fraud in connection  with the insurance business, if tlio  insured is nob in part a co-insurer  wifch the company, that is if the  ���parties-donot-have a common interest in the preservation of the property insured one of the most  efficient safeguards agaiusb fraud  and crime is removed."  In this case there was am pio evidence of over-insurance. Tlie  plaintiffs wore on the verge of dissolution of their partnership, notice  to dissolve having been given, and  ia fact litigation had commenced  between tho partners. Cordingly  effected these insurances without  tlio kuowledgo of his parlner, after  the partnership disputes had commenced, and without Pardy's  knowledge and at a time when tlie  valuo of the property had been re-  ducod below the amount of the last  stocktaking, and on a statement by  hitri alleging the value of the stock  was double what it was in reality.  Tiie jury finds the declarations  made by the plaintiffs with regard  to their loss were untrue.  This being so the plaintiffs are  nob entitled..-to recover.  Tlie other questions were with relation to the appointment taken by  the defendant's appraiser and the  jury finds that no objection was  made thereto. This had reference to  clause No. I of the variations of the  conditions endorsed on the policy,  and the effect would bo that if the  policy iu all respects should be  valid, tho amount of loss would be  limited to tho amount thus appraised, and as the whole of the  goods have been sold by Mr. Day it  would be impossible ab this date to  ascertain the correctness of Cord-  ingly's alleged valuation sent, in on  the 2(5bh of September, 1900. I  think the whole of the evidence  "shows an attempted fraud by the  plaintiffs, aud on these findings I  dismiss the plaintiff's  action  with  CL.A.S.  Carnegie's Gift to Scotchmen.  London, May 20.���Mr. Carnegie  has for some years been considering the plau for helping Scotch  students to obtain a university education. He consulted with reputed  educators and the result was that  he presented ��2,000,000, which will  produce an income of ��50,000. Mr.  Carnegie's inquiries show that the  total fees paid to the four universities is ��40,000 annually. He considers tliat the ��2,000,000 lie has  donated will give an income sufficient to provide free university  education for every boy and girl in  Scotland capable of passing the  entrance examination. Mr. Carnegie is determined that the benefits shall be open to rich and poor  alike, so that there shall be nothing  suggestive of pauperism connected  with the gift. He desires that all  Scotchmen and Scotch women shall  enter the university on an equal  footing. The system is mado perpetually free and will probably be  under government auspices.  Another Yacht Race.  Rvde, Isle of Wight, May 20.���  The two Shamrocks started this  morning for a race over an open sea  course, the first leg of which is a  beat from Calshot castle to a mark  outside the Nab lightship. The  wind was steady fiom the east and  was blowing a club topsail breeze.  The Shamrock I had tho advantage  of the start and crossed the line  ahead of the challenger. When  they tacked ten minutes later  neither yacht had gained any advantage. The Sliamrock II won by  about a minute. '  London, May 21.���The time at  the finish of the triangular course  in yesterday's yacht races was as  follows: Shamrock II, 4 hours 5.  minutes 5 seconds; Shamrock I, 4  hours 2 minutes 27 seconds.  FOUR HUNDRED MIN LAID OFF  Because  of a  Grudge  Against  One  Man.  Rossland, May 20.���At the Le  Roi mine between 120 and 130 men  were laid off today. Inquiry of the  management as to the cause of tliis  elicited the statement that the men  were dismissed as a result of trouble  at the smelter at Northport.  Trouble lias beeu brewing there  for several days, and the smelter  was finally completely closed down.  Three hundred men employed  there are out.      A foreman in  the  smelter earned the ill-will (of somo  of the employees, and as *a consequence of this it is. alleged tliat  threats were made that he \Vas to be  run down the railway track, and that  he might be thrown in thef-Columbia river. The management of the  smelter therefore decided .fto close  down, as it did not desire'} to' have  any trouble, until such time as 'matters would quiet" down. The, only  work in progress is that of roasting  ore in the yards. It was further  stated that there was no question  of wages nor of hours involved, but  it was simply one of a personal  grievance against the foreman on  the part of the smelter men. If the  trouble continues the Rossland  Great Western, the Le Roi No. 2  and the Le Roi will be closed down,  as the yards at the smelter at  Northport are not of sufficient  capacity to hold much more ore.

The door leading into the  room was locked, and it was at" first  supposed that it was a case of suicide. Blood stains ou the fire escape gave the first clue to the police. Mrs. Bonine's confession was  entirely voluntary. At a few minutes after 3 o'clock this afternoon  she telegraphed for major Sylves- ,  ter, chief of police, saying that she  was coming to his ofiice, and she  appeared there a few minutes afterwards.  When she reached the ofiice she  said she had a statement which she  wished to make and she was immediately turned over to Home, who  took her' confession.    She said she  was alone in a room wilh him when  the killing took place, and that the l-  shooting was the result of her own-  misconduct.    She said  that he had  "drawn the pistol' upon her for the ,  purpose of making her respond to an ���  improper   proposal which   he  had ;,  made to,her.   "Mrs. Bonine says she- .  immediately grasped  the "revolver  and in  the  struggle which ensued  it was   discharged   three  different'  times, striking   him   at   each  discharge, the last  shot proving fatal.  She  says the  cries  for help which  -  .Miss Miuas heard were all from her,* -  as was also the "sobbing which Miss  Minas described.  Mrs. Bonine says that after the  shooting she passed through Ayers' "  room onto and down the fire-escape  ladder and entered the parlor window of the second floor, passed  through the parlor and back up the  stairway of the hotel to her own  room on the fourth floor. She then  washed her hands, undressed and  retired. Mrs. Bonnie was entirely  self possessed when she made her  confession and did not exhibit any  evidence ovf eibher present or past  unusual excitement. She is appar-'  eutly about 32 years of age and' .  says she was born in Mason, Missouri. She then removed to Hamilton, in that state and afterwards to  Richmond, Kansas, vyhore her hm>-   band was engaged in the drug business.

It was settled; but how?  Simply by the two parties interested getting together anrt hearing  each other talk. That is the way  all such differences can be settled.  If people having differences will  not come together to adjust tliem  within a reasonable time, the law  should step in and do it for thera.  The Victoria, Vancouver & Eastern, which is a railway that looks  well on a blue print, proposed that  theprovince give them asubsidyof  $4000 a mile for a section beginning  at Cascade and running thence  thirty miles toward Greenwood,  aud a like amount for another section beginuiug at a point on the  Fraser river and running thence  thirty miles east into theChilliwack  farming district., This meant the  construction of sixty miles of railway through a comparative easy  country in which to build railways,  and one in which there is promise  of paying traffic from the start.  The provincial subsidy would  amount to $240,000. In addition,  the same company has a bonus of  $350,000 from the City of Victoria.  They also say that they must be  allowed to bond the road for $35,-  000 a mile; bonds that if sold would  realize at least 90 cents on the  dollar, which would be d$l,890,000 ;  or a total of $2,480,000 from subsidies and bond sales. The thirty-  mile section into the Chilliwack  country would not cost to exceed  $17,500 a mile, and the Cascade sec-  -tiou-shouIdnot=cbst"to"exceed==$25F=  000 a mile ; or in all $1,275,000.  The difference between $2,480,000  is $1,205,000, which after making  all reasonable deductions for the  cost of moulding public opinion and  pay of parliamentary agents should  leave sufficient to pay interest on  the bonded debt for a period of ten  years anyway, even if the road did  not earn a dollar over operating expenses.    The V. V. and K people  are unwilling to tako any chances  of   making a loss.   They  want a  cinch.

Thk Trihune  was the only paper in the province  that maintained the mint should be  located at Ottawa, and it was tlie  only   paper   in  Canada  that  contended that  the cost  of  operating  ' assay offices was so small that one  should   be    established   'wherever  there was likelihood of any amount  of goldrdust. or gold-bullion  being  handled.      If   assay   offices   were  ���established   at   Dawson,   Victoria,  Vancouver, and Nelson, very little  gold mined-on the PaciBc Coast in  .tlie districts north of   the   international boundary line would  find  its   way   into   the  United   States  without  its owners   having    paid  tribute to the business men of tliis  portion of Canada.

By all  means, Mr. Sifton, see that the  "West is provided" with more' than  one assay oflice.    It will pay.  Judging ��� from the reports sent  The Tribune from its special reporter in the Boundary country,  there is going to be some railway  building in that section in the immediate future. It is just possible  that the Canadian Pacific K and  Great Northern will both have  roads in operation between Grand  Porks and Republic within a year.

The Carpenters and Power Company.  To the Editor of The Tribune :  Would you kindly allow me space  in your paper to  draw  the  attention of the carpenters  of this district.to some of the actions of the  West Kootenay Power  and Lijjht  Company    at    Bonnington    Falls.  They had a number  of  carpenters  engaged  on  their   works there  at  union time  and union   wages,  and  it appears they had   tried  hard   to  get them to work  one  hour extra  per day, but failed;   and so on last  Saturday every mau was  paid off,  without a word of warning or any  explanation-whatever.     As  I was  the last to go to  the office for iny  pay, and having complained  about  the way we were laid off, the manager, probably thinking lie hud one  that he could do as  ho  liked with,  asked me  to  call  on  him  Sunday  morning and he would  make me a  proposition that would  be to my  own interest (and as I did not belong   to  the   union  I suppose   he  thought I would jump at it), but  told me at the same time not to say  anything to any of the other  men,  and he would say - no. more until all  the others had lef t. , As I  did  not  intend leaving that night, anyway,  I thought I  would hear what ho  had ito say;   and on  Sunday morning he made, his proposition, aud it  was to the effect that I would stay  on and work at  the same pay, bub  to work ten hours instead of eight.  As I have never made a scab of myself yet, I did not accept his  kind  offer; and I would like toadvise all  carpenters to keep away from there  unless they wish to be looked upon  as scabs, aud are willing to work  ten hours per" day instead of union  time.     By kindly  publishing this  you will confer a  great favor on  the carpenters in this district.  J. E. BlSVE RIDGE.  Nelson, May 20th, 1901.

Golden Km.*  The chief justice, in his charge to  the jury, called attention to. some  of the statements made by counsel  for defence tliat were not supported  by evidence.   The judge was. very  careful to  refrain from expressing  an opinion, leaving that entirely to  the jury.     The judge deprecated  tlie practice of working on tho sympathy  of   the jurymen,  and   cautioned tho jury against being influenced by any emotion on  one side  or the other.    At 3 p. m.   the  jury  in the Collins case brought in their  verdict.    "We consider the prisoner  guilty   of   the  murder  of Arthur  Dando,   but   in   consideration    of  provocation he received we recommend him to mercy of court."   The  judge said that Avas  the only verdict they could have arrived at, but  would  call  their attention to tlie  fact that he had,no course open bub  one, though he would defer sentence  as long as possible and would make  representation  to the minister of  justice   of   their  recommendation.  His   lordship   then   directed   that  prisoner be asked if he had  anything to say why sentence  should  not be passed.    Collins made some  unintelligible reply.    His lordship,  ia   a voice choked with emotioi?j  then    pronounced    the    sentence:  "You shall  be  taken to the place  Surveyors on the Ground.

Buffalo, May 20.���Lowering  clouds that carried a threat of rain  and a wind that blew in fitful gusts  marked the opening hours of dedication day. The rain held off, however, and each hour of respite  added to the hopes of the men to  whose care the great ceremonies of  the day were committed. The holiday crowds were astir early and  the earlier trains brought" thousands of recruits to their ranks."  The exposition grounds "and business district of the city where tlie  military and civic parade formed  were the centers that attracted the  largest number, while -the streets  and avenues connecting the two  swarmed with animated crowds.  The exposition grounds were opened  at S o'clock and the turnstiles have  been steadily revolving ever  since.  Buffalo, May 20.���Director general Buchanan of the Pan-American  Exposition Company has received  telegrams of congratulation from  the governor-General of Canada,  president McKinley, the presidents  of Hayti, Colombia, Peru, Equador,  Nicaragua, Uruguay, Paraguay,  Argentina, the Dominician republic,  and the governors of Jamaica and  Martinique. The following was received from Ottawa: "The governor-general of Canada directs me to  express to you his hearty congratulations on the opening of the Pan-  American exposibiou which'his excellency sincerely hopes may be in  every Avay successful.

Ostrich Steals Diamond.  Colorado Springs, May 20.���  Jacob Becker, a mine owner of this  city, today made an involuntary  and sensational investment in an  ostrich. Becker with some friends  visited the newly established Zx>.  As he leaned over the fence looking  at the ostriches.; one of them  was attracted by a $600 diamond stud in his shirt front.  After a few side-steps -it straightened out its anatomy and deftly  snatched the sparkler. Becker kept  his eye on the thief while his friends  went to protest to the management.  Emetics were used on the bird, but  up to date' the ostrich is grinding  grain with the stone.  Presbyterian s^iif-SessionT^���   Philadelphia, May 20.��� With  today's session the actual work of  the Presbyterian general session began. The report of the revision  committee has beeu made the special order for Thursday and thereafter until tlie question of revising  the confession of faith shall finally  be settled. Today's order provided  for the report of the standing committee on missions for freedmen,  reports of the boards of ministerial  relief and education and of a special  committeo on judicial commissions.  This last report is considered second in importance only to that of  the committee on revision, as it  recommends the creation of judicial  commissions of Presbyterians and  syuods aud a permanent judicial  commission from the membership  of the general assembly to sit as a  court of linal appeal.  V.rill Train in Canada.  London, May 20.���According to  private cable dispatches from New  York, the proposal of the English  universities to hold an athletic  meeting at Montreal before they  meet the Americans in New York  is opposed by Harvard and Yale,  whose athletes want their meeting  with Oxford and Cambridge to occur first. In reference to this a  prominent Oxford official said:  "Oxford and Cambridge are not the  least likely to give way on this  point. We aire receiving a continuous stream of complaints that we  will court certain defeat by doing  the bulk of our preparation iu the  vicinity of Now York during the  intense heat of August and most of  September. Therefore we are seeking more invigorating quarters in  Canada.     We   will   complete   our  Strike Afcermath.  Aldany, May 19.���The incidents  of this the first day of active operations of all the railway lines affected by the great strike have  been few because of the heavy fall  of rain. The two men shot byNa-  tiohal Guardsmen in defence of life  and property were buried this afternoon, but the pouring rain kept  away the thousands of sightseers  that otherwise would have marked  the occasion with their, presence.  The departure of the Twenty-third  regiment early this morning was  the second feature of the day, and  striking sermons in many city pulpits aided in closing the incident.  .  HUM.

The steamer Moyie yesterday  brought in somo thirty Gallicians  from Edmonton. It is .said they  are intended for work on the Canadian Pacific sections.  The 18-room addition to the  Sherbrooke hotel is now completed,  and it is tbe intention of the proprietor to make it one of the most  popular houses in Nelson.  Some of the boys who were em-.  ployed'at the Athabasca have  removed to Moyie,  where they have  secured   work at the St. Eugene.  Among "others,0 L. D. Snider.  Herbert McKnight, who was tried  at the Golden assize upon a charge  of mischief, in placing' some explosive under a Chinaman's shack at  Athalmar, and thereby causing actual danger to life, was acquitted  by the jury.  The case for the plaintiff in Peters  vs. the Nelson Tramway was closed  yesterday, when W. A. Macdonald,  for the defendant company, moved  for'a non-suit.

Any new  players in the city-are cordially invited to show up,  Fred Collins, who is now Under  _d^ath^^ejntejK:_e_fm,==the=inurder=,o��  Arthur Dando, betrays very little  concern as to his fate. Ou the way  down from Golden to Nelson he  gave a sort of minstrel performance  with his banjo with a policeman on  either side of him. He says the  only mistake made was the omission of the people to kill him as  soon as he had got rid of Dando.
