Mike O'Brien Talks About the Recent  Strike  Which He  Fortunately  Made on Bird Creek.  Mike O'Brien, whoso recent strike  ou Bird creek lms iu a measure  revived interest iu that section, was  receiving - the congratulations of  his many friends yesterday upon  his luck. Tlio story of the lind as  told iu "Wednesday's Tribune is  substantially'correct: Tlie freshet  ������.'carried the wash olT the ground  and exposed tho ledge, which  O'Brien proceeded to strip for a  considerable distance. He describes  the ledge as seven feet between the  walls, both of -which have been  found, the ledge matter being made  up of three feet of quartz, three  feet of talc and tho rest gimgue.  Tho quart/, carries some copper,  and gold cau be panned from almost  any piece selected. The ledge has  been uncovered between the Ophir  ' and Ruby claims, aud a portion of  it" runs through a corner of the  former.  George H.

Christie's law  practice while tho latter is in England on the privy council appeal in  the celebrated C.illaghan vs. Coplen  cise. Tliis dispute, over mineral  ground upon which the Freddie Lee  v-r-in has been traced," has passed  through so many phases in the  courts that it is now almost impossible to- speculate as to whom the  title is vested ih. The decision of  ���' tlio privy council is anxiously  awaited  by everyone in  the in-pe  - tliat work upon tho claims in qius-  " tionwilKbo resumed. - The-Freddie  Lee is at present held by A. W.

Shaw and John McRae, who  aro developing the Pingree group  on Forty-nine creekabovo the May  and Jennie property, expect to  strike their- ledge in the crosscut  within the next few feet. Considerable work has been done upon the  group, one tunnel having been run  in upon the ledge for 35 feet and a  crosscut is now in some 45 feet. It  is estimated that another five or  six feet will catch the ledge in the  crosscut, giving a depth of 00 feet.  :--_7_ Y��}'y satisfactory assays have been  ^Kall^rotirtBisTlM^  i ndicated, values in the crosscut the  owners will have a, good thing.  W. M. Sandilands of Sandon was  in Nelson yesterday on his way to  Spokane to conclude a deal upou a  Slocan property. Iu speaking of  the Slocan pioneers, Mr. Sandilands  said-"Billy" Lynch had made a big  strike on the Prince of Wales island, and had his find sufficiently  developed to warrant its inspection  by experts. From such information as had come to hand it was  apparent that Lynch had one of  the biggest copper-gold propositions in the north.  W. A. McLean, road superintendent, has a crew of men completing  the trail from the Granite wagon  road to the head of Forty-nine  creek. This trail was put through  last year as far as the head of Eagle  creek, and will; now be completed to  the head of Forty-nine.  Chickens Gone Home to Roost.  At the last provincial election at.  Yinir all the influence the mine  owners ' had was thrown, sdlid*  against the successful candidate, as  was all the influence .of the Miners'  Union at that place. John Houston;  'according to the people of Ynlir,  was a blankety blanked blank. He  had a few friends there, however,  and now they laugh .at the antics  Ills opponents cut in their efforts to  obtain appropriations for public  works. Tho recent high water did  considerable damage in the town of  Ymir, aud yesterday a delegation  arrived at Nelson with a tale of  woe. They said tho railroad company, who owns the townsite, would  . not do anything and that the  government agent could not spend  any money unless the people of the  town shared the expense. They  approached a friend aud made their  lament to him. He advised them  to go and see Houston. "What!"  was the reply, "go aud see the man  that every- one. of ns voted  against!" They left for home  without interviewing the member  for Nelson riding.  Another American Winner.  London, June 7.���Another of  Britain's great racing trophies has  \ been captured by America, Foxhall  P. Keeuo having won the Oaks with  Cap and Bells II, ridden by Milton  Henry. Tho hollowness of the victory detracted from the interest in  the race.

Two lengths separated second and  third horses.- Cap and Bells, 9 to 4  iigainst; Sabrinetta, 50 to 1 against;  Minnie D., 100 to 1 against.  Punctilio won the Acorn stakes  of 1000 sovereigns. Fourteen  horses ran.  THE PROGRAM IS ARRANGED  For the Water Carnival.  The carnival committee of the  Dominion Day celebration held a  meeting last evening for the r-iir-  po3e of arranging their program.  It was decided in the first place to  have the water carnival on the first  night of the celebration so as to enable all visitors to see it. The question of holding a fancy dress ball  on ono of the barges was aL-o discussed and was incorporated in the  program. The ball will be given  on a barge suitably decorated.  While the procession is in motion  the barge will be anchored in midstream and from it the judges will  make their awards. AVhen the procession ends the barge will be towed  to the wharf so that aiiy who desire  to leave may do so. The ' admission to-the barge in' the evening  will be 50 cents for gentlemen and  ladies free. During the afternoon  of the regatta .the barge will" be  .used as a grand stand, -the admission being placed at 25 cents. While  the barge is in the stream steam  launches will convey passengers to  and from it.  The prizes decided upon by the  committee include three valuable  prizes for the best costumes  at tho fancy - dress ball,  $50 for the best decorated  launch*, $35 and $20 for the best  decorated boats, $25 and $15 for  the best decorated canoe, $35 for  the best decorated sailing boat, $15  for the best musical boat, aud $ 10  b.,_r the best comic effort at boat or  canoe decoration.

Albany, June 7.���Dr. Johnson,  secretary of the state health committee, went to Suffern, New Jersey, today to investigate a complaint by the health authorities of  New Jersey to the effect that smallpox was being brought into that  state from New Yoik, and that the  disease had been traced to Suffern.  Dr. A. S. Seabroskie is health officer  of Suffern and he was asked some  time ago * by the United States  health department what the conditions were. He replied that there  was no smallpox there, but that  there was a number of cases of  Cuban itch. Subsequent investigation, however, showed that these  cases were smallpox. The conditions in Suffern are said to be serious.  Croker Having a Good Time.  London, June '>7.���Mr. Croker at  Epsom' today said he was having  such a good time that he did: not  know when he would go to New  York. Certainly it would not be  soon, as. nothing iri the affairs in  which he was interested required  his personal attention. He looked  uncommonly well and laughed at  the reports that he was melancholy  and going into a decline.  Barred From Trial Races.  New York, Juno 7.���Thomas W.  Lawson's yacht, the Independence,  will not be allowed to compete in  the trial races preliminary to the  races for the America's cup. This  decision was arrived. at by the  challenge committee of the New  York Yacht Club this afternoon,  juid was conveyed to Mr. Lawson  in a letter mailed tonight.  FLETCHER WINS HIS HEAT  DEFEATS THE DEWAR CREW BY  TWO   LENGTHS.  Will Now Go Against the Hodge Crew  in the First Heat Called This  Afternoon.  The Nelson Boat Club's Juno regatta opened in promising shape  last evening, when the Fletcher and  Dewar crews rowed off their heat  in the club fours. This contest.excited unusual interest, and in spite  of the frequent showers and the  generally threatening aspect of the  weather, quite a bunch of enthusiasts gathered at the club house  and at the several poiuts of vantage to witness the opening contest.  With the exception^ of his worship, nearly all of the men were  new at the business, arid in-his case  so many years had elapsed since he  was iu a racing boat that many  were inclined to think that he had  lost his hold on the art, but in this  they were very much at fault. Although the race was scheduled for  7 o'clock, it-was fully 7:30 when the  rival crews took to the water. The  Dewar boat put out from the club  house first and as they paddled  down the course' they .received,the  encouraging cheers of many ad  miters. -The Fletcher boat followed  a few seconds later, and its occupants received like encouragement.*  In moving up to the starting point  the Dewar crew- were certainly-the  favorities, as they appeared to  handle themselves better than their  rivals, but this did not disturb the  confidence of the supporters of the-  Fletcher boat. ���  The Hall launch, with E.._'M.Johnson aboard as star ter, foi lowed  the ��� crews down _ to the starting'  poin t. opposite Ithe sam'pling. works?  The Fletcher boat-took th'e-outside,  course.and'with ��� the starter in between it and the Dewer-boat the  word was given at 7:40. Mayor  Fletcher was on the alert and  caught the water first with a  strong, rapid stroke which shot his  boat almost two lengths in the lead  before the Dewercrew were in the  race. From the end of the course,  however, it looked as if the Dewar  boat would pick up the gap. They  were rowing a slower stroke, but  members of the crew were working  well together, while the men in the  Fletcher boat were splashing badly.  When one-third of the distance  was covered, however, the Fletcher  men had still a good length to  the good and their stroke was  pushirig_7them7���at^ajJively* rate.  .Carnegie's Scottish Gifts.  London,' June 7.���Andrew Carnegie signed a deed today ttansfer-  ring $10,000,000 in 5 per cent steel  trust bonds to trustees for the benefit of the universities of Scotland.  The amount becomes immediately  available. The next installment of  interest can be used for the October term. The deed contains a preamble saying '.that Mr. Carnegie,  having retired froth business,deems  it to be his duty and one of his  highest' privileges fco administer the  wealth which has,-!come to him as  trustee in , behalf! of others, enter-  taining the confident belief tliat one  of the best means of discharging  that trust is^ providing funds for  improving aud. extending .the opportunities for scientific research of  the universities 7joi' Scotland, ~ his  native land, and.,by rendering.the  attendance easier! A constitution,  as it is called, is attached tothe  derd directing that half the income  be devoted toiiicreasiiig the" facilities for the study jOf science, medicine, modern languages, history and  English literature.'- The other half  is to pay fees and assist students in  other ways, regardless of sex, and  in aid of preparatory schools, evening classes aud other means of education outside of the universities.  LECLAIR GETS TWO YEARS  A Bowling-Record.  Portland," Ore., June 7.���-In a  bowling contest here last night  with the Young 'Men's Christian  Association team'.the Multnomah  Athletic Club team broke the  American -*Cocked{Hat" record for  four games, scoring a total of 1140,  the former score being 1133.  Morgan's -Famous Painting.  London, June 7'. ��� J. Pierpont  Morgan's famous- 'picture of the  duchessof Gainsborough was taken  to Marlborough ^Ilouse this afternoon "for the. -king to - see. Mr.  Morgan was present.. The picture  was afterwards taken to Mr. Morgan's house."    ""/  A LITTLE TAFFY ALL ROUND  The members of the crew were  also handling themselves better and  they maintained their ad van tage to  the city wharf. At the half Dewar  lost his seat and the Fletcher boat  increased its lead to three lengths.  Dewar got back into the race, however, and, quickening his stroke,  crept up in a way which indicated  an exciting finish. The Fletcher  men also responded to shouts of encouragement, and; his worship, remembering some things lie had forgotten years ago,: hit up a pace  which for a time threatened to put  some of his crew out of business.  The tired ones rallied before it was  too late, however, and got over the  line with two lengths to the good.  The Dewar crew finished fresh,  aud in their opinion lost the race  by waiting too long before making  their final spurt. The time of the  heat was not taken.  By their victory last evening the  Fletcher crew will go against the  Hodgo crew in the opening heat  this afternoon.  '. Considering the very short time  the members of tho two crews have  had to get in shape, they made a  very creditable showing, some of  them having been in the boat but  three times. The crews were mado  up as follows:   -  Uunyaii, bow Campbell, bow  McNichol 1-Yastr  Mclaughlin I'ulicn  Flelchor, utrcko Dewar, stroke  The regatta this afternoon will  start at 1:30, the course being laid  in front of the old C. P. R. shipyards. For tho convenience of  spectators tho steamer Moyie will  leave the city wharf at 1:30, taking  in the entire regatta. The It. M. R.  band will be in. attendance on the  steamer, the fare for the trip being  25 cents.  :LORD    MAYOR   OF,; LONDON   RE-  ,  CEiyES-THE^MERICANS,.-.-  Compliments Galore Are Passed and  a Regular Lovo Feast Par-  , ticipated in.  ., London, June 7:���The lord mayor,  Frauk'Green, and the sheriffs this  afternoon received the delegates of  the New York Chamber of Commerce at the Mansion /House. A  number of members of the London  Chamber of Commerce, including  lord-Brassey and sir Albert K. Rpl-  littv were present. The lord mayor  =addressed=the=Amerieaus,=thanking,  them in the warmest terms, for  their visit, and declaring that nothing could have done more to promote a perfect understanding and  unity between the greatest two  nations of the world. He referred  to Morris J. Jessup's reference in  his speech at the banquet Wednesday to the impossibility of jealous  rivalry existing between the United  States and Great Britain being one  pf the truest things ever said.  0 Lord Brassey spoke in a similar  strain.  Mr. Jessup, in replying, said:  "Your kindness has captivated our  hearts. Wo aro not worthy of it."  Loud cries of "No," in which somo  of the Americans joined, followed  Mr. Jessup's remarks. Mr. Jessup  then referred to his fellow-delegates  as "children of this great country,"  and concluded with an. expression  of fervent thanks for fJheir reception.  The lord mayor proposed the  healths of king Edward and president McKinley, coupling with the  latter a heartfelt wish for Mrs. McKinley's recovery.  Andrew Carnegie was the center  of attraction throughout. After  the ceremonies the lord mayor went  up to him and said he especially  wanted to shake hands with Mr.  Carnegie, who said: "In New York,  in my young and poor days, when,  1 read about Dick Whittington I  little thought I should stand heie  shaking the lord mayor's hand."  The lord mayor replied: "We read  nothing else today but of Mr. Carnegie's splendid gifts, aud in the  name of the English people I want  to thank you for your unexampled  generosity."  ROWLEN'S    BAIL    APPLICATION  STOOD   OVER.  Tony Leyden of Fernie Sentenced to  Six Months' Imprisonment for  Escaping From Custody.  P. McL Forin of Rossland, acting  county court judge, had a busy  time yesterday in chambers, and in  the disposition of the criminal  cases which have accumulated since  the last assize court.  In chambers there was a long  argument over an application of  the defendant in the case of Liu-  burg vs. McPherson to set aside a  garnishee order. In this case the  plaintiff, the keeper of a Rossland  livery stable, had served a garnishee  order upon the .Granite mines to  secure a claim of $2.50 for. the hire  of a rig in February last, as well as  the sum of $60 as damages to the  same through the horse running  away. Objection was taken to the  procedure with respect to the  amount claimed for damages on the  ground that it was not a debt thai  had- been determined. Decision  upon the point was reserved.  In the estate of Thomas Marks,  the well-known banker . of Port  Arthur, auxiliary probate was  granted under the will of the deceased conveying some lots in the  city of Sandon to the heirs of the  deceased.  ; Frank Rowlen and'' Frederick  Bloomfield, the prisoners committed  to stand their trial upon the charge  of robbing Charles Johnson on Sunday morning, were brought up for  election: They elected trial by  jury, and their cases will therefore  go overuntil the next assize. "An  application for ,bail was'made on  behalf< of the prisoner Rowlen, and  a lengthy argument took.place be;-  tween^theprison'er's counsel and_A.v,  M. Johnson^ who appeared - for the.  crown,! with the result that the  application for bail was set over  until the return of county court  judge Foriii next week.  In the case of Rex vs. Leyden, in  which the prisoner, Tony Leyden of  Fernie, was charged with theft and  also with escaping from custody, a  plea of not guilty was entered to  both charges.* The prisoner said he  was not ready to go on with the  thef t case owing to the absence of  a material'witness, and the same  was adjourned until the 17Lh install t. ' Upon the charge of escaping froni custody the prisoner was  found guilty and sentenced to six  months' imprisonment.  In the case of rex vs. LeClair, in  ^hiclrthe^pfisb^  was charged with an offence against  section 178 of the Criminal Code,  R. M. Macdonald for the prisoner  entered a plea of not guilty. The  hearing of the case occupied two  hours. LeClair was found guilty,  and sentenced to two years' imprisonment. A. M. Johnston conducted  the case for the crown,  George Pearse, the Lardo man,  charged with breaking into tho  warehouse of G. O. Buchanan, was  brought up for election and asked  for a speedy trial, the samo being  set for Monday, July 8th.  Cannot Mediate.  Vienna, June 7.���Count Golueho-  ski, the Austro-IIungarian minister of foreign affairs, informed an  Austrian deputation today that the  government could not entertain a  suggestion of mediation between  Great Britain and;,,the -Boers because no serioiis government would  care to undertake mediation after  the British government declared  that it would not accept mediation  and that an offer to mediate would  be regarded by Great Britain as an  unfriendly act.  Bringing Congratulations,  London, June 7.���A special embassy from the sultan of Morocco  bearing congratulations to king  Edward on his accession to the  throne created considerable interest on its arrival today. It arrived  at Portsmouth yesterday on board  the British cruiser Diadem. The  embassy is headed by Kaid El Mo-  hedi El Menebehi, the minister of  war.

JUMPING THE RICH CLAIMS  CHANGE    IN    BOUNDARY    LINE  CAUSES   CONrUSION.  TRIAL OF SPEEDY YACHTS  Ex-Challenger Easily Leads.  Rothsay, Firth of Clyde, June 7.  ���The Glasgow exhibition regatta  opened today.     The yachts started  in a brisk northwest breeze over a  course   inj the form of   a  square  lying between the islands of Bute  and Ayrshire, giving a fair trial on  all points of sailing.   A distance of  50 miles was sailed.   The race was  decided between classes, they having  several points of interest to Americans.      In the first   division  the  Shamrock I was pitted against the  best'   single    stickers    in    British  waters..   She was heavily handicapped, a provision i of the  British  racing rules forcing her to give the  Meteor 45 minutes and 39 seconds,  the ' Sybarita   42 "minutes and  34  seconds and the Kariad 47  minutes  and 4 seconds.   It was the Shamrock I's open-1 competition and  she-  was expected to demonstrate what  improvement she had made' since  the   cup* races.      Interest   in  the  second race .centered in Charles F.  ��� Herrshoff,   "junior's*'1 new''   critter  Nevada, .built recently   at   Portsmouth.    'She   is   of    the   American    type    and    designed    with  little    regard   - for     the     restrictions of   the   British  racing rules.  It was admitted that if   she was  successful she would either set the  fashion   for   British   designing  or  force the racing association to materially modify  the   measurement  rules.    Her competitors, the Lais,  Carina   and   Tutty,,were not very  formidable, but   they  were  fairly  representative of the work of British builders two seasons ago.  The four big yachts were sent off  with full light-weather canvas and  a capital start. The Kariad, tho  Meteor and the Sybarita were beam  and beam, with the Shamrock half  lir=leTig"tU"Ttsterii7���^Thir^raii^air  easy five-mile reach to the first  mark and tho former cup challenger ran away from her competitors,  and when she turned the first mark  led the Meteor and the Kariad by  half a minute and the Sybarita by  1 minute and 24 seconds. The  yachts ran and reached across the  firth four miles more, the Shamrock  easily outfooting the others. The  Sybarita.lifted along better than  the Meteor, but neither could hold  the ex-challenger, and when this  log was finished the Sliamrock led  the Sybarita by 1 minute and 41  seconds, the Meteor by 4 minutes  and the Kariad by over 10 minutes.  The wind then softened and tho  pace slackened.  -    An Illegal Strike,  Buffalo, June 7.���The New York  Central railway officials have posted  notices in their shops at Depew to  the effect that all employees who  have beeu absent from work of late  without leave must report Monday  morning if they desire to remain in  the company's employ. Tonight  the striking machinists will meet to  take action on the decision of the  International Association that they  struck illegally and ordering the  men back to work. It is probable  that they will vote to return to  work.   A Sensible Jury.  New York, June 7.���The jury in  the trial of Benjamin Adams, accused of violation of the Sunday  law in Yonkers by playing golf on  Sunday, brought in a verdict of not  guilty and recommended that the  Sunday law be amended so as not  to interfere with the innocent  amusements of citizens on Sunday.

Vancouver, Juue 7.���[Special to  Tlie Tribune.]���A special dispatch  from Chilliwack says:   There is a'  row on at Mount Baker over tho  result of the American survey of  the boundary line.   The American  surveyors" located the line 3840 feet  further south than it was supposed  to be for the last three years.    Two  thousand feet of the Golden  Chariot and Golden Star claims  wero  shoved over into Canada.     These  are   owned   by   Seattle  and" New  York people.

Late News From Dawson,  Vancouver, June 7.���[Special to  The Tribune.]���The steamer Amur  arrived tonight from Skagway with  five of   the   first   passengers who  came  up  the Yukon  river by the.  Bailey.    They bring news that four  men, whose names are not be ascertained, were drowned last Saturday  at Five Fingers rapids through tho  overturning of a boat.    The water  was  very  low  and   deceptive and  the  men  struck  a  rock  with   the  bottom���of=their==eraft^wheir^-half^-  way through.    No  bodies were  re- '  covered.  Gambling was closed up tight in  Dawson as well as White Horse ou  June 1st. The biggist faro bank at  White Horse was broken the day  before by a miner. .  Late passengers say that Lake  Le Barge will not be open before  the 15th. :  Phoenix Makes Good Terms.  Phoenix, June 7. ��� [Special to  The Tribune.] ��� A well-attended  meeting of residents and ratepayers  was held last night to decide the  question of who should be given a  franchise for supplying the city  with light and water. Three propositions were expected to be presented, but oue was withdrawn.  Messrs. Graves, Flnmmerfelt and  Williams asked for a twents'-five-  year franchise, McArthur Sc, Monk,  representing the West Kootenay  Light and Power Company, asked  for a similar franchise and the  Greenwood Electric Company asked  for a twenty-year franchise. The  latter company has been supplying  this city with electric light ior.over  a year and wished to preserve the  investments already made. Accordingly they offered to give the city  free water for fire purposes and free  light for $50 per month, the whole  being equivalent to at least $1200  per year to the city. A ballot of  ratepayers was taken, which resulted in an overwhelming majority  for the Greenwood Electric Light  Company. As soon as legal requirements can be completed, work  on the new works will be inaugurated. This is possibly the  best deal ever made for water by a  city in the interior of the province.  s*ir  '-'"E'-jSjlM^  :^Si  ���-''.^'f-v'rs^s  Sii��5  'igSl^y^1  ?ff|f��i|  7 ������"'.^Vl-'i^'viB^r?

What a fat ce!  Ten Tno us and additional people  in a town like Nelson are worth  more to the Canadian Pacific railway than twice that number added  to the population of places like  Montreal.  There is rather an amusing story  in The Tribune this morning. It  relates the difficulties people have  to overcome in purchasing supplies  in the commercial metropolis of  Kootenay on a week day. While  intending purchasers are.hunting  around for open doors, merchants  are in out-of-the-way places kicking themselves . for signing that  Thursday Closing Agreement.  Notwithstanding all statements  to the contrary, the mining laws of  the Province of British Columbia  are fair to the prospector and.lib-  eral to the mine owner. The former  can.go where he pleases, even on to  occupied land, and stake a mineral  claim. The latter is not required  to pay taxes until his mine is a  producer. There may be ambiguous sections in the law; but the  letter of the law is fair and the  spirit is liberal. Much of the faultfinding is mere senseless clamor  made by men who are failures as  individuals.  KODAKS,  CAMERAS AND  The best.Kodads  are made; by the  Eastman Kodak  Co.

The reorganization of the Duncan  Mines, Limited, is another  link  in  the chain of evidence that is accumulating against the management  of old country mining compauies.  This company is one of the  nuraer-  ���ous���prospecting=and=developiug=  companies organized in London a  few years ago.     It had ample.capital, but it too often  paid too much  for the whistles it bought.     Partially developed omines  were purchased   at  high  figures and  overcapitalized.     The public would nofc  take   the1 shares of   these " pup"  companies, and the parent company  had to advance large sums for'development work; money that could  not be returned.    The result is thafc  the "pup"   companies   are   being  wound up and the pareut company  reorganized.    After awhile, some of  these    old    country    mismanaged  companies will get down to business and pay dividends.  Simply Buried Him.  Blackfoot, Idaho, June 7.���Word  his been received of a.tragedy on  Lost river, west of here. William  Williams, a well-known rancher,  living on Little Wood river, had a  ranch hand employed for some time  past whose name could not be  learned. The fellow stole a valuable horse from Williams and decamped. Williams started in pursuit, coining up wifch the thief near  Martin postoffice. Upon observing  Williams approaching the fugitive  commenced firing and one shot  .-struck Williams in the groin, inflicting a dangerous wound. Williams thereupon opened fire and instantly killed his man. The authorities decided nothing more than to  bury the stranger was necessary.  Busy Times at Dawson.  Dawson,   May   21,   via   Seattle,  June 7.���The .spring cleanup season  is in full swing in parts of the Klondike camp. Millions of dollars'  worth of gold dust have been  washed from the pay .dirt taken  out by the army of toiling miners  through the long weary months of  winter. Within a month three  million or four million more dirt  will have been taken out and the  washing of the winter dumps ��� will  then be finished. The spring cleanup of the camp is estimated at fifteen millions, and the summer output at ten millions. Gold dust is  now coming into Dawson" afc the  rate of'$30,000. to' $40,000. a day.  After two or three, weeks the. roads  will be dry, and it will How in at a  heavier rate. The two. banks here  are busier than they have been for  months buying ore and receiving  the dust for storage. The big trading companies are receiving a great  deal of dust iu payment for goods  advanced to miners during tho winter. The camp is in a flourishing  condition, and everywhere good  feeling prevails.,  A Nervy Sheriff.  Carroij-ton, Ga., June 7.���A mob"  of 300   white men broke into the  jail here this afternoon in an  attempt to   secure   a   negro named  Williams.      Iu front of the negroe  =fche-mobewa9=confronted=by^=sheriff=  Merrill, revolver in hand.     A fight  ensued, in  which  the sheriff  shot  and wounded two men, one of them  ifc is  believed iatally.     The   mob  fired on the sheriff, but. he was nofc  hurt,  although   one bullet  passed  through   his  hat.      The mob  dispersed without  getting the  negro.  Williams was to have been hanged  today   for   the   murder   of   John  Worle, but the execution was postponed owing to   an   appeal made  this morning.  Governor Chandler at 2 p. m. ordered one company of militia to  Carroll ton-by special train. It is  feared another attempt will be  made to lynch Williams tonight.  Japan Still Belligerent,  New York, June 7.���-The Jour-'  nal of Commerce publishes a dispatch from Washington as follows:  Advices  from  the   Orient  are  far  from reassuring as to the maintenance of peace in the future, even  after the successful adjustment of  the   existing   difficulties    between  China and the powers.   Those who  have   recently   come  from   Japan  confirm the reports   of trained observers there that the Japanese are  generally preparing for war with  Russia.    Intimations several times  have been given since the close of  the war between China and Japan  in 1895  that Japan   would  regard  interference with the autonomy of  Korea as a hostile act.   The Japanese, including-their representative  ministers,   have   firmly   made   up  their minds that when the  results  of Russian interests are disclosed in  an open movement hostile to Japan,  the Japanese army shall be landed  in Korea and Russia warned that  she must retrace her steps or fight.  DUNCAN   MINES,   LIMITED  'To Be Reorganized,  London, May 22.���Owing' to the unfortunate failure of the GraniteGohl  Mines, Limitcd.the Duncan Mines, Lini-  ited_ the parent; company has been  forced into liquidation. It will be remembered that in order to develop its  properties the Duncan Mines advanced  a large sum of money to the Granite  Company, and before tlie collapse of  that concern, obtained and registered a  judgment against the company. Not being able to realize its assets to such an  advantage as to pay off its liabilities  the company had no alternative but to  go into liquidation. Consequently, a  meeting of the shareholders was held  on Monday last, when, after considerable discussion,a resolution to go into  voluntary liquidation was unanimously carried, Mr. William McBwenbeing  appointed liquidator.  The directors have, however, great  faith in the company, and at the meeting a proposed scheme for the reconstruction was briefly outlined by the  chairman, Mr. A. McNab, who after referring to tlie. unfortunate position of  the company, said that the directors  fully believed iu the ultimate success  of the Granite and Poorman mines,  while the company's holding of 47,000  shares in the Queen Bess Proprietary  was a most valuable asset. It was proposed that the new company, which  would take over the assets of the old  company, should havo a capital of ��300-  000, which would be underwritten to  the extent of 100,000 shares at acost of  6d. per share. Shareholders in'the old  company will have the right to apply  for shaves-in the new company.and to  raise the necessary capital ,the new  shares will be issued as ��1 shares, with  15s. paid the 5s. being payable in small  assessments. Out of a total capital of  some ��133,000. holders of shares amounting to ��90,000 haa approved of the  reconstruction scheme.  In the course of his remarks the  chairman said that he felt quite satisfied that the. company had turned the  corner. Official news had been received that day of the discovery of a  new vein in the Granite, and this new  vein, if it bore out the position it was  in now, would double the output of the  mine quite easily.  A shareholder was informed that to  wind up the old company and carry  through the t reconstruction scheme  would take some six weeks or two  months.  The Duncan Mines, Limited had a  capital of ��135,301, in fully paid up  shares of ��1 each.  NOTICE.  "CANADIAN CONTI.N'CKNT KXKMPTrO.V ACTS."

The .'twenty-ninth annual report presented at the annual meetint*:,  held at tlie head office of the association on April 20th, 1901, was entirely  satisfactory.    The following is a synopsis of the report:  The directors are well pleased to be able to present, a report which  cannot fail to prove satisfactory to both shareholders and policy holders.  A ratio of expenses to income is the lowest in the history of the  company. -  '  The new applications for the year amounted to $3,301,S04; accepted  and issued for the year, $32,332,90S.  The claims arising from death Ave.-e well within the expectation,  calling for a total Sinn of $290,S33, under 175 policies, on 144 lives.  In addition to the amount paid to the representatives of deceased  policy-holders during the past year, the association paid to living policyholders the large sum of $250,714.50 under endowment policies. This is  much the largest sum paid lor endowments in any one year of the  association's history.

The financial statements fully set forth tho position of the company  at the close of the year, and do not call for special remark. The audit,  as usual, was made monthly during the year, and the report of the  auditors is subjoined to the financial statements.

Odd Fellows' Day.  Buki<'AijO, June 7.���Odd Fellows'  day, June 2(5th and 27th, promises  to be among the most interesting  aud memorable of the Pan-American exposition. A. fraternal invitation has been issued to 12,000  I. 6. 0.1<Y lodges throughout the  United States and Canada requesting the rhembers to participate in  .the' ceremonies of theso days. The  numerous replies received indicate  enthusiasm and assure a large  attendance of three linkers. General E. C. Shafer, department commander of the state of New York,  has issued orders for a grand 'cantonment of the uniformed bodies,  the parade being on June 20th. Accommodations have been made for  35,000 visitors.  Crooked Officials.  Nraw' York, June 7. ��� Justice  Jerome of the Court of Special  Sessions gave out an interview today concerning the city administration. In it he says : "I have  got to get out and light crooks and  the police and public officials have  beoii charged by respectable citizens  with fflonies. Why don't they  bring criminal libel suits? They  have not got the sand. . Why, in  England men who had charges  made against them such as the  officials of New York have thrown  ac them would be given 24 hours to  bring criminal libel suits or resign.  Respectable citizens assert that  there i** not a single city department wliich is not corrupt, except  possibly the fiscal department. The  charges are made openly and are  not refuted. A prominent Tammany  leader, I understand a dock commissioner, is said by the papers to  have been the proprietor of a pool  room at the corner of Twenty-sixth  street and Third avenue. Has he  brought a criminal libel suit ? I will  give a warrant immediately against  any paper he may designate."  Always Get the Best of It.

Dr. Parker, who presided,  said: ''Because Mr. Morgan is being taken away I don't entertain an  unfriendly feeling for those across  the Atlantic. My friends in America' were wise iu their choice of  such a man. as Morgan. To take  Americans in bulk, which, by the  way, we never could, is to handle a  multitudinous, expressive quantity.  I havo never known an unwise  American. They always get the  best of things, look out as we may.  Let us think we are getting the  better of them, we soon find we are  mistaken. There is much holy and.  unholy ambition in that most wonderful country."  Bernhardt as Borneo.  London;' June 7.���Sarah Bernhardt will play Romeo for- a hundred nights iu America to Maude  Adams' Jnliet. This important  theatricarevent was arranged yesterday evening at a supper given  by Sarah Bernhardt to Charles  Frohman, at which Maurice Grau,  the manager, was also present.  Madame Bernhardt will play in  English, and after the American  tour the two actresses will appear  here and on the continent. Madame  Bernhardt has taken Mr. Frohman's  prompt copy in manuscript and  will study the role in English during the summer. It is the desire of  both managers to have Madame  Bernhardt appear as Romeo.following her coming . production . of  "Theodora" at the Sarah Bernhardt  theater in Paris. Before Miss  Adams shall return to America she.  will meet' Madame Bernhardt in  Paris and go over the scenes of the  first act.    To Preach in Theaters.  Chicago,'June 7.���The aim of the  National Church, just organized by  those interested ih tho People's  Church in Chicago, is to preach the  gospel in the theaters of every  great city in the United States.  The idea is to gather into the theaters men and women who are der  voted to Christianity, but independent of sectarian dogma and  practice, Thus far the only obstacle  to large cash contributions for the  work has, been the lack of recognized organization.

A license tb wed was.issued yesterday to Philip Bert Sauschagrin  and Dora Ardell Breneuian, both  of Slocan City. The license was applied for by the lady, and being, the  first time such a thing has occurred  during his office the registrar was  for the moment uncertain whether  the license could issue without the  customary declaration of the groom.

There was a baseball game on the  Hall street recreation grounds yesterday afternoon that was a  whizzer. The contesting nines  were from the two great schools of  the town, and the nine from the  Sisters' school beat the nine from  the' Public school by a score of 0 to  3.

There is an old proverb that fortune seldom knocks twice at any  man's door, and this in a measure  was exemplified yesterday morning  when a number of cayuses ladeu  with groceries threaded their way  down Josephine street and trudged  past the big grocery stores on  Baker street on their way to Forty-  nine creek.  The stores were purchased by  William Waldie, who has charge of  the work of putting.in- the bridge  over Forty-nine creek, whieh was  taken out during the recent freshet.  Waldie went out to look over the  work and got back to Nelson on the  2:30 train. As the absence of the  bridge is a source .of great inconvenience to the meu working on.  Forty-nine creek Mr. Waldie at  once set about securing a crew of  men to go* out on the woik early  Friday morning. He had little dif-  iicuIty iu getting his men together,  and, leaving them with their assurances that they .would bo'..oii hand,  set out to secure his supplies. .. He  had no difficulty with regard to  hard ware, but. when it came to groceries he ran foul of < the Thursday  closing movement, and from Stanley to Josephine on Baker3 street  there was not one grocery house  prepared to do business.  This put Mr. Waldie ih a quandary. To wait until the Nelson  grocers on Baker street were prepared to do business would entail  upou him the work of hunting up all his men, and  telling them they could not  start until Saturday morning, and  would also mean the delay of one  whole day. This he did not relish  so he started up Josephine street in  search of some of the less pretentious grocers, who were not  above doing business six days in  the week, and he was forced to  keep climbing-until he came to the  Ideal grocery, on the corner of Mill  and Josephine streets. Here he had  his order filled and the cayuses  were started- bright and early  Friday morning for the work. The  Thursday closing forced this buyer  into new business relations whicli  will doubtless continue for the  summer, and -what happened hist  Thursday may happen next Thursday, and every Thursday Nelson's  retail grocers., remain closed.

Notwithstanding the number of  launches in Nelson there was" a  dearth of them last evening when  an effort was made to secure one  for the starting of the race between  the Fletcher and Dewar crews.  Captain Holmos' launch, the High-  laud Girl, was finally secured, but  when the starters were aboard aud  ready to go a new difficulty was  encouutered. First officer McPhee  was on the bridge, and he set the  engine bells ringing only to find  tliat the captain had failed to  bring down the coal oil, and they  were therefore without motive  power. The Hale launch was eventually secured, however, and the  crews started iu good shape.  PERSONAL.  P.   Burns   is   registered  at   the  Phair.  L. J.
