C, WEDNESDAY- MORNING, JUNE 5, 1901  rrdCE FIVE CENTS  O'BRIEN MAKES A STRIKE  HAS A RICH QUARTZ  LEDGE ON  BIRD  CREEK.  Bolieved That Ho Hag Uncovered the  Ledge for Which George Ellis  Searched So Diligently.  Mike O'Brien ia reported to have  made a rich strike of gold quartz  on Bird creek within the past few.  days. Tliis creek has been so  thoroughly prospected over in the  vain search for the ledge from  which rich float has been found,  that tho news that the ledge lias  beeu uncovered will doubtless be  received with surprise. No particulars of O'Brien's find have been  received other than that the quartz  is very rich and that the ledge was  uncovered by the recent freshet.  Men familiar wifch Bird creek are  of the opinion thafc O'Brien has discovered the ledge which George  Ellis, the Nelson assayer, worked so  hard to find in tlie summer of 1891.  Tlio attention of Ellis was directed  to tho creek by the finding of considerable quantities of very rich  float. In his search1 up and down  the creek he gathered togeth'er some  of the finest; specimens of gold  quart'! ever seen in Kootcuay.  Ellis guarded tlie secret; of the  location in which he was searching  very jealously. In the winter of  1891, however, he was taken down  witli pneumonia, but so anxious  was lie to discover tho ledge from  wliich his float came thafc lie  made  "'another trip "to Bird creek iu the,,  following May beforo he had fully  recovered his health. Tliis brought  on .a relapse which terminated  fatally. _  Before he' died, however, Ellis  confided to  his father the  locality  . from .whieh. the float came, but in  the directions given the father cjii-  .fugedLToni .Ward's cabin, wjth Tom  ' AVanf's" claim. "Xfc, this time Tom  Ward had a claim on Bird creek,  from whicli. some' very fine specimens came, and he also had a cabin  at tho ferry, but'iu- confusing the  two the local men sent to look for  the lost ledge found them-elves  called upon to prospect in a big  gravel bank, and after putting in  four or five days the Ellis cluo was  abandoned in tho search.  Since~ then  tlio search has been  -resumed from time to time on Bird  creek, but; although float was frequently picked up the wash on tlie  creek prevented discovery. If  O'Brien in his discovery has come  upon this lead he will doubtless bo  in great luck.   J._C._Ryan,_o_f_the Soho group, is  registered   at   tlie   Hume. lie  reports several mines ,in the McGuigan basin as working, chief  among which is the Rambler, which  sent out twelve cars of ore to Everett in May. Among tho other.properties working iii a smaller way  aro the Antoiuo, the Rod Fox and  the Soho group. The mines themselves never looked befcter, and if  the market would improve there  would bo a very busy season. On  the Soho group the work is being  done on the Tom Moore claim.  About a car of oro is shipped each  month to tho Nelson smelter, but  the prospects are good for increased  shipments."      A. D. Whealler, superintendent  of the Whitewater mine, was registered at the Phair yesterday. He  says that a complete shut-down has  taken place at the Whitewater, and  there is no immediate prospect of  re-opening." The Whitewater has  been decreasing.its force from time  to time,..���rather than shut down  completely, in the hope, thafc market conditions would improve, but  there.beiug no present prospect of  improvement the shut down .was  decided upou. All along the line of  the Kaslo & Slocan thei e are large  quantities of ore awaiting an outlet.  . John Hiunpson, foreman of the  Alice mine in the Goat river division, which T. G. Procter is developing, was in Nelson yesterday. Ho  says the work of putting in the upraise between the 250-foofc and 100-  foot levels is going ahead nicely  and will be completed in about two  weeks. Tliis will greatly facilitate  the work,as Hampson has been very  much hampered by bad air in the  lower tunnel. When the two levels  are connected an increase will be  made in the number of men employed and the property will lie  worked in three shifts instead of  two as at present.  MINING   RECORDS.

KILLED HIS FRIEND'S WIFE  . The Deed of a Dago.  1 Nkw- York, Juue 4.���Francisco  Alasko, 22 years old. shot and  killed his first cousin, Mrs. Angelina Faia, 27 years old, in the  woman's home early today, and  then committed f-uieide by shooting  himself in the breast. The tragedy  occurred in a tenement, 133 Elizabeth street. Alasko had -been in  love with the woman for years.  ,Mrs. Faia, her husband, Angelo, and  Alasko were natives of the little  town of Potensea, Italy, and grew  up together. Alasko and Faia were  rivals for the woman's affections.  She married Faia and Alasko appeared to make the best of his disappointment. He professed enduring friendship for Angelo and ..his  wife, and'when the" couple,ca'me to  this country accompanied, -them;'  and all three, with the Faias'two  children, lived together. This morning Faia went out to buy milk and  bread for breakfast. The tragedy  occurred soon after" he leffc the  hou��e. No one except the two  children in tlie tenement heard the  shooting. When Faia returned to  his room he was met at the threshold by his daughter, Carmelia,  who cried, "Oh, Francisco has shot  mamma." Faia was arrested as a  suspicious person, but; his innocence  was established by the sfciaightfor-  ward story told by his lifctle daughter, Carmelia, who said Alasko had  done the shooting.  The Big Libel Suit,  Boston, Mass., June 4.���With the  100 or more witnesses who have  been summoned in connection with  the trial of the $150,000 libel suit  of Mrs. Josephine C. Woodbury  agaiust Mrs. Mary Baker G. Eddy,  founder of Christian Science, in  their places in the superior court  room, the space loft for spectators,  was meager and .this morning, as  on previous days, it was far too  small for the crowd that wanted to  get in. Judge-Septimis J. Hanna,  editor of the ^Christian Science  Journal, resumed the stand. Tho  first question by Mrs. Woodbury's  counsel was: "Have you the original of the message sout by Mrs.  Eddy to the Christian Science  Journal in May, 1S97?" "I have a  copy of the Journal containing the  message," was the answer. Counsel  offered tho publication referred to  as evidence, sayiug that Mrs. Eddy's  reference to Mrs.. Woodbury as being unfi iendly to Christian Science  showed malice. The evidence was  admitted, subject; to exception, simply on the question of malice.  Proposition of .Canners.

Charles Nelson Can Throw Very Little  Light Upon That Early Sunday  Morning Holdup.  The police court was crowded  yesterday morning when the cases  against Frank Rowlen and Fred  Bloomfield were.called. The men  were charged with assaulting and  robbing Charles Nelson early Sunday morning on Hall street, but  from -the evidence submitted by  the prosecution there appears to be  no casa whatever against Rowlen.  With respect; to Bloomfield everything depends upon" a hat.  When Nelson was knocked down  on Sunday morning he lost his hat,  and in the "scrimmage whieh  followed th'iugs began to get some-  whatmixedas between his assailants  and himself. The result was that  one of the footpads got Nelson's  hat and left his own -hat behind.  The police say they can establish  the fact that Bloomfield is the  owner of the hat found by Nelson.  This iu short is the only hope of  ���the prosecution, as Nelson's recollection of . the Sunday morning-  o<_-eurrerice appears to be growing  very hazy.  P. E."Wilson handled the case for  the prosecutiou,,-but he found ifc irar  possible to get Nelson to throw any  light, upon the affair.' Nelson's  story was that hercame to town on  Saturday,'when he had a cheek for  $48 and some $15 or $16. He cashed  the check'' in. the Bodega saloon.  There were a number bf people" in  the salooirwhom he did not kuow,  and he treated and went out. He  kept''circulating around the bars  until between" 11 and 12 o'clock,,  when he went to his boarding-house  "and planted the greater part of/his'  money.-" He *then continued his  round" of pleasure until he was assaulted aud robbed on Ilall- street  early Sunday morning. Nelson's  evidence as to who assaulted hirti'  was utterly valueless, save in that  he testified that after the scrimmage the soft hat which, he had  been wearing had* been carried  away, and a hard hafc leffc in its  stead by one of his assailants.  When the case' had reached this  stage P. E. Wilson asked for an adjournment. - ��� He" said he was instructed that the police could establish tlie question as to the ownership bf the hat found by Nelson,  but the necessary witnesses were  nofc present.  The case was accordingly ad-  -journed-uutil���this-morning_afc- L0_  o'clock.     '  Neelands' Stock Brought Sixty Cents.  The Neelands stock of boofcs and  shoes was disposed of by sheriff's  salo yesterday morning in front of  the court house. The^stoelc, whicli  invoiced something over $8000, was  bought in by Lewis A. Godbolt at  (50 cents on. the. dollar. This will  just about.cover a mortgage on tho  stock held by H. G. Neelands.  Fine Ore in the Slocan Star.  "Bob" McDonald of Sandon is in  town'. He reports Sandon as being  a trifle quiet, but that .during the  winter more meu were employed in  that neighborhood than ever before. The Slocan.Star is in good  shape, and souye of ; the finest ore  ever seen in the camp is coming  from the shaft.  Stopped Operations for a Time.  The Whitewater mine, in the  Slocan, has stopped operations until  such time as the pre and concentrates can be marketed, to advantage. The property, ifc is said,  never looked better. The shutting  do wu " of the property is a hard  blow on the lifctle town of "Whitewater.      :  ���  -    -    "  '.

BOLD ATTEMPT AT 1SGAPE  TORONTO CONSTABLE SHOT DEAD  BY. PRISONERS.  Revolvers Thrown to the 'Men by an  Accomplice Are Used With  Deadly Effect.  Toronto, Out., June 4.���County  constable Boyd-was- shot-dead-this  afternoon in one of the most remarkable attempts of a criminal to  escape from justice in the annals of  crime in Toronto. Rice, Rutledge  and Jones were on trial afc the assizes on a charge of robbing the  postoffice afc Aurora, Ont. At the  conclusion of tho day's proceedings  the three men were placed in a  hack. County constable Boyd sat  inside and constable Stewart outside wifch the driver. Great precautions were taken tb prevent escape of the prisoners. Two of them  were shackled together aud all  haudcuffed. AU went well until  the corner of Sumach and Gerrard  streets was reached. Here is a  steep incline near the bridge leading to the jail.  A stranger at this point ran up  to the hack and threw three revolvers into it. The burglars seized  thera and began firing. Boyd was  shot in the head and killed instantly.  The hack stopped and;the prisoners  jumped out and ran 4]K> .a passing  Carlton street car, which would  take them out into the country.  Stewart, a second.constable, opened  fire on the men, hitting Jones in  the groiu. The prisoners jumped  ou the car and ordered the motor-  man to go on. Instead of doing so  the motorman drew off tho handle  and attacked tho men, the conductor pulling the trolley off the  wire. Stewart and the hackman  came up and after fight a succeeded  in recapturing the prisoners, who  were removed to the jail. Jones'  wound was not dangerous. The  young man who threw the revolvers  into the cab is being pursued by  the police, who hope to get; him.  Cleveland, June 4.���Stripped of  everything that would unnecessarily catch the wind two modern  side wheel passenger steamers-  City of Erie of Cleveland and the  Tashmoo of Detroit���lined"up this  morning for a ten-mile race from  Cleveland to Erie to decide the  speed championship of the two  lakes. Long before .starting' time  Cleveland harbor was alive with  crafts and the wharf was black  with people. Whistles blew and  bells rang and the din was deafening as the two racers, glistening in  the morning sunlight, steamed up  to the stakeboat. The patrol boats  busied . themselves keeping the  course clear. ' Apparently both  boats' were evenly matched���the  Erie 323 feet over all and 78 feet  beam against the Tashmoo's 320  feet length and 70 feet width. The  Erie was built to make fast  schedules between Cleveland and  Buffalo under all conditions and  has twice the power of her rival.  The Tashmoo. was made for river  work, draws much less water than  the Erie and is built like a cigar,  with a sharp tapering prow.  Ib was estimated that over $100,-  000 would change .hands over the  result of the race. The betting was  even, ranging from small sums to  thousands of dollars. The Cleveland' & Buffalo Transit Company  posted $1000 on the Erie, against a  similar amount put up on the  Tashmoo by the "White Star people/  Just before the boats started the  wind veered around to the ��� north  ,and the racers had a seven-mile  breeze, against^their, quarter bows.  yyheiFthe" starter "gave > the signal  the two vessels were at a dead  ..standstill and on even terms. Much  to the surprise of the' spectators,  the Erie was first to gain headway  and crossed the stakeboat line fully  two lengths.ahead of the Tashmoo.  The Detroit boat, however, gradually drew up' on the- Erie, and as  they disappeared in the- "haze three  or four miles to the eastward the  Tashmoo had overtaken the Cleveland boat. Off Fairport, 28 miles  east of the start, the City of Erie  led by nearly a quarter of a mile.  The boats were both steaming afc  terrific speed. The Cifcy of Erie  reached the stake boat 1 minute  and 34 seconds ahead of the Tashmoo, unofficial time.  Cleveland, Ohio, June 4.���The  -100-mile���race���from- Cleveland-to  Erie today between the Cleveland  passenger steamer City of Erie,  owned by the Cleveland and Buffalo Transit Company, and tlie  Tashmoo, a crack passenger boat,  owned by. the White Star Company,  was in many respects the most  noteworthy race ever sailed on  fresh water. The Erie covered the  distance in 4 hours, 19 minutes and  9 seconds, passing the stake boat at  Erie 34 seconds ahead of the Tashmoo, beating the latter by 45 seconds elapsed time. Ifc was pronounced by old vesselmen to be the  finest race ever witnessed. Aside  from winning the speedy championship of the great lakes, the Erie  won about $100,000 for those who  bet on her.  The conditions under which the  race was sailed were ideal. There  was a fair sky aud the sea was as  calm as a millpond. The Erie made  no preparations for the race except  to unload her freight after coming  in from her Buffalo run in the  morning. ' The Tashmoo had been  scraped thoroughly;and everything  was done to facilitate her speed.  From the start ttie-= result was* in  doubt until wifchin a few miles' of  the finish. The race demonstrated  that both boats were well matched.  The boats approximately made  nearly 23 miles au hour. It was  neck and neck from the starting  point until just about Fairport,  where the Erie enqountered a swell  and dropped back full three lengths  behind her rival. From Fairport  to Ashtabula she made no gain, but  finally picked up and passed her  rival.  Boers Capture Jamestown.  London, June 4.���The war office  tonight publishes the following dis  patch from lord Kitchener, dated  Pretoria, June 4: " Jamestown,  Cape Colony, surrendered to Kritz-  inger's commando on the morning  of June 2nd, after four hours' fighting. The town guard and volunteers were overpowered before our  columns could come up. Our casualties were three killed and two  wounded. The Boer loss is said to  have been greater. The stores were  looted, but the garrison was released. Have placed general French  in charge of the operations in Cape  Colony."  >  Athletics at the Exposition. -  Buffalo, June 4.���Clear skies,  bright sunshine, tempered by a  cooling breeze, made an ideal day  for the first athletic contests to be  held in the Stadium at the Pan-  American exposition grounds. Sixteen of the colleges and universities  in the east and west sent their representatives to participate in  today's inter-collegiate track aud  field events which marked the real  opening of the Stadium to sports.

She has the best  equipped and best drilled fire department in the province.  Every effort possible should be  made to secure the location  at or  near Nelson  of the proposed lead  refinery.    Towns, like individuals,  .' must saw wood to be successful.  That no action was taken by the  city council on Monday night; on  the Sunday Observance question is  an indication thafc the aldermen  have concluded to let; the people of  Nelson observe Sunday as they individually see fit. This would be  the sensible way to end a controversy that should not have arisen.  An extra issue of the British-Columbia Gazette coutaius the proclamation that makes Slocan City a  city, and hereafter ifc will nofc be  .. proper for fche people of that town  to use the word "city" after the  word "Slocan."

IRON MOUNTAIN, Mich., 4.���  Eight miners were killed today in  tlie seventh level of tho Ludiugton  mine by deadly fumes of gas following an explosion "of dynamite.  Nearly thirty children were rendered fatherless by the explosion.  The men entered the level early  this morning and it is supposed  they forgot to keep the powder-  thawing machine supplied with  powder. The reason for the explosion probably lies in the fact that  the machine soon became red hot  and set off a quantity of dynamite  stored near by.  MOTHER-IN-LAW'S SCHEME  To Free Her Daughter.  Springfield, III., June 4.���Mrs.  Mary McWilliamsof Quiney, mother  of Mrs. Mary Barnes of that city;  who has been arrested on a charge  of being implicated iu the plot to  murder Mrs. Barues' husband, for  which crime Mrs. Barnes and William Web Ferguson have been indicted, had, a preliminary examination before justice Henderson of  Jacksonville yesterday and. was  bound over to the grand jury in  the sum of $5000, which she has not  yet given. Ferguson, the negro,  who confessed to having given Dr.  Barnes poisoned candy at the central hospital for the insane at Jacksonville, testified that the candy  had been given him in Quiney by  Mrs. Barnes iu the presence of Mrs.  Mc Williams. Ferguson* said Mrs?.  Barnes advised him to- use -the  name of William Finn, a negro who  formerly lived in Monticello, in order' to obtain admission to Dr.  Barnes, and that Mrs. McWilliams  wrote the letter of identity. This  letter was introduced in evidence  andboro th"e_signaturoof-"Mrs���M���  15. Hill, Monticello." It requested  superintendent Winslow "to allow  bearer, Mr. Finn, tp see my brother,  Joe Ij. Barues, as they are old  friends." Ferguson stated that the  woman had given him money and  railrod tickets. Ferguson said he  ate three of the pieces of candy  himself, not knowing it was poisoned. Mrs; McWilliams ou his return to Quiney told him it was a  wonder he was not dead too, she  having received a telegram announcing the death of Mr. Barnes  that afternoon. Several witnesses  testified that Mrs. McWilliams had  talked to them in regard to her  daughter marrying in the event of  her husband's death.  S. HOWLAND Prosidont..  It. WILKIK Uouoral Managor.

Two days' advertising in Thb Tribune' cleaned out  his stock of ladies' shirtwaists.  According'to the genial old-gentleman who edits the Mine Owners'-  Own, A. J.���Marks is a bold bad mau  for daring to write a letter, and  The Tribune js real mean for publishing it. The g. o. g. is hard to  please.  Captain McMoriis of the steamer  Moyie is lelieviug captain Seaman  of the steamer Slocan, on Slocan  lake. In the meantime the, Moyie  will be cleaned up so as to be in  readiness for the imperial limited  service.

Lennox received $275 as commission on the sale, but claims $500  in all.  The concert advertised to' be  given in aid of the English church  will be held in the opera house, and  not in Fraternity hall, on Friday  evening. So many tickets have  been sold that Fraternity hall  would be too small to.hold the  crowd, hence the change to the  opera house.  Wheu Hugh Nixon was apprised  of the generosity of the city council in allowing him full time while  he was traveling through the spillway, he remarked that some difficulty might be encountered in determining the same, as he had lost  his watch and that of "Bill" Young  who rescued him had stopped. -  The sidewalk that is being relaid  full 15 feet wide on the south side  of Baker street, between Josephine  and Stanley, will make the business  portion of the town look like business.
