After Being Storm Bound Fought His  Way   for  Eighty Miles   on a  Small Quantity of Tea.  of liis  his re-  W. II. Swerdfeger, who spent a  low weeks in.the insane asylum in  Novv Westminster, is in Nelson receiving the congratulations of his  many friends upon his complete recovery. Ho is loud in his praises  of the oilicials of the insane asylum  and 'his only regret was that he was  not able to make the local physicians understand the cause  trouble which necessitated  uioval to New "Westminster.  Exposure and starvation wero  the causes which led to his being  adjudged insane. Following his  usual custom he '.had spent the  winter in trapping niarfceu in the  basin of one of the glacier fed  forks of the Little Slocan. He  had two camps established  and worked from one to the other  in attending and setting his traps.  His supplies iu the tipper camp got  low. but he contented himself for  several days on.short rations iu the  knowledge that lie had left plenty  of stores in the lower camp. Finally  lie saw the signs of a storm coining  and decided to move down to the  lower camp, which was fifteen miles  distant. The short rations of the  previous few days had made him  weak, however, and iC was after  nightfall when-he made the lower  camp. Here he made the startling  discovery tliat rats had eaten up  the whole of his stores. He  had his stores suspended from  tho roof on wires but  the rats had cut holes in. the sacks  and thus allowed, ������everything', to'  fall out on the door. The only portion of the stores which were not  consumed was the tea. The storm  hail now sot in and Bill was in the  position of having nothing to eat  and of being unable to make his  way out. From the remnants of  the Hour sacks hanging on the wire  he scraped about a pound of: flour,  which had caked to tho emvas  through moisture, and kept himself  alive on this and che tea during the  six  days  which  tho storm  listed.  Then famished with hunger he  decided to try and make tho eighty  mile tramp from the camp to Park  Suling. lie was too weak to pack  blankets and carried nobbing but  his skins, an axe, and tho remainder,  of the tea. Bill says ho made Park  Siding in four days-and was on the  move near!y all tlie' ti 1 ne owing to  "the (���old.^^IlV~fealiiWrt!il;trlre"haxl=  to hold himself together until he  reached the railway track or it  would bo all up with him, and his  strength of will pulled him tli rough.  When ho reached the railway he  mado a cabin and had some tea, but  after this he collapsed. Every nerve  in his body seemed to be twitching  in an opposite direction, and tho  strength of will whicli had enabled  him to endure the great privations  of tho past ten days completely  deserted him.  After being brought to Nelson  Bill says he knew tho doctors considered him insane, bub ho was content to go to New Westminster because he felt certain he could gob  better treatment there than anywhere else.  Athletes Bound for Buffalo.  Nkw York, June 11.���Forty four  athletes from this city are expected  to leave tomorrow night for Buffalo, where they will compete in  the amateur athletic union chain-  pionship3 on Thursday, Friday and  Saturday. The entry list is the  largest the union has ever iiad for  a national championship meet. For  the junior championships there aro  125 entries, and for the senior championships 1 1.9, a total of 214. This  is 71 more than last yoai;. There  aro twenty entries for the handicap  events on the opening day. These  handicaps are a now departure. It  will bo tho first time any western  cracks havo competed since the  championship meets in Detroit in  1888. ,   ,           Britain's Greatest Competitor.  Shanghai, June 11.���Admiral sir  Fid ward Seymour, Baitish commander-in-chief of tho China  station, was the principal guest of  tlie China Association at its annual  banquet last evening. During tho  course of a speech protesting  against the policy of trade exclusion, the admiral said Great Britain  had three powerful rivals ��� tlie  United States, Russia and Germany.  Of the three the United States was  the greatest of her trade rivals, but  the rivalry Avas not in conflict with  Great Britain's policy of the open  door. Germany was a keen competitor both as regards trade and  sea power. Great Britain someday  would have to reckon . with the  latter. Russia was not only extending Iter territory, but was repressing trade. Admiral Seymour  insisted on the importance of holding and defending Shanghai, in  order to preserve the prestige bf  foreign nations.  EXTENSIVE GOAL MEASURES  IMPROVEMENTS BEING MADE IN  THE  CROW'S NEST  PASS.  Contracts   Awarded for   Seven   Hundred Additional Coke Ovens and  Several Miles  of Railway.  Although little is said about it,  there is considerable railway work  under way over in East Kootenay.  Breckenridge & Lund, the well-  known railway contractors, have  four camps at points on the Crow's  Nest railway, and are advertising  for men. Peter Lund of the firm is  now in Nelsou. He says his firm  have completed a contract for th-a  delivery of 500,000 ties to the  Crow's Nest road, and that during  the time they were at work they  had twenty camps strung along":  .between. Goat-fell and Macleod.  They have contracts for grading at the Loop and1' are  doing work at Michel and Fernie.  They have just closed a contract  for grading seven miles of roadbed  between the coal mines at Morrisey  and the Crow's ��� Nest track.. , This,  piece of work is for the Crow's  Nest Southern.  Elias Rogers 'of Toronto, managing director of the Crow's Nest  Coal Company, is now at Fernie,  and contracts have been awarded  for the construction of 700 coke  ovens, 300 of which will.be built at  Michel. Mr. Lund is enthusiastic  over tho future of that country.  He claims that the coal measures  extend for miles on both sides of  the railway, and that before loug  Alberta and British Columbia will  be furnishing the greater part of  the coal and coke used in the West.  Mr. Lund is of opinion that the  Crow's Nest Southern railway will  not be built this year.   Courtmartialed and Shot.  - Pretoria, Juno 11.���Two Boers  have been courtmartialed and shot  for trying to escape from Pretoria  and to rejoin their commando after  having taken the oath of neutrality.  WILL PAY OFF THE MORTGAGE  On Stemwinder Mine.  Fairvirw, B. C, June 11.���[Special to the Tribune].���Richard Russell, manager of the Fairview Corporation, Limited, at the request of  eastern shareholders lias left for  Montreal. His visit is for the purpose of raising funds to pay off the  Gooderham ifc Blackstock mortgage  of $40,000 and for continued  development of the Stemwinder  mine and tlie erection of a suitable  milling plant. At a depth of 300  feet the west drift is in a splendid  body of ore, the average of the last  ten samples being $794, a great improvement over values in the upper  levels.           Refused to Vacate.  Paris, June 11.���At a meeting of  tho shareholders of Figaro today  the action of the committee of surveillance was unanimously sustained. The shareholders voted in  favor of the removal of M. Perivier,  the manager, and of the acceptance  of tho resignation of M. Derodays,  editor in chief. M. Prestat, president of the company, was appointed  provisional manager of the paper.  M. Perivier refused to vacate tho  premises. M. Prestat tried to get  the police to eject him, but they declined to interfere.  NTOMBED IN  NING MINE  Thirty  Pennsylvania  Coal  Miners  Perish,  West Nuwton, Pa., June 11.���  Time only adds horror to the disastrous mino explosion which  occurred last evening at No. 2 mine  of the Pittsburg Coal Company at  Port Royal. Three men .were rescued and 27 others are imprisoned  in the burning mine. Last night  the mine was reported at the offices  of the company here to he on lire.  Division snperiutendants Wm. Mo-  Cnne and W. F. Allison of this  place started for the scene. They  entered the mine with the fire boss,  John Keck, who carried an open  lamp. Three explosions followed at  intervals of a few minutes, the  large fan being inadequate to control the rush of the fire damp.  Many of the miners escaped, bub  the latest reports state that McCune and Allison, with fifteen miners, are beyond reach of rescue,  being located over a mile from the  bottom of the pit. Since the efforts  of tho third rescuing party, which,  like previous attempts, was disastrous, no further attempt to reach  the men will be made until mine inspector Callaghan arrives from  Connelsville. The wives and children of the missiug - are gathered  about the mine shaft waiting for  some news of their loved ones, and  every few minutes appeal to some  men to try to rescue them.  The list of those supposed to  have lost their lives is not obtainable at this hour, and this is a partial list of those'; supposed dead:  William McCune, general superintendent of the district; Dennis  Wortley,  pit boss;   Michael   Roy,  foreman; Michael Daley, who entered the mine for the first time  yesterday morning; Frank Davenport, married; Anthony Stickles,  married; John Peoples, who has a  wife and two small children here,  and about thirty other miners. In  the attempt to rescue the men  known to be in the,mine other  lives were placed in jeopardy and  may be lost. About.0.o'clock there  was a low, rumbling sound, followed  by a roar which sounded like a  cyclone, then three sharp and short  reports. Immediately measures for  the rescue of those in the mine  were taken and a rescue party  composed of the men who had  knocked off early in the day was  formed. The men entered the  shaft and started towards the spot  where it was thought some of the  entombed men might be found.  Lying at the bottom of the shaft  were Lawrence Sottler and John  Staker, unconscious and covered  with dirt. They were quickly  taken to the top of the mine.  When they recovered they told the  rescue party where four other men  were entombed. About 7 o'clock  William McCune, Dennis. Wortley,  Michael Roy and several other  bosses, with about twenty men,  went down shaft No. 1, which is  just opposite on the Baltimore &  Ohio side of the river, and they are  probably lost.  About three hours after the  rescue party had been in the mine  two more explosions were heard.  Meanwhile the crowd around the  opening of the shaft had increased,  including mothers, wives and sisters  of many of the entombed.  At 3 o'clock A. W. Sweeny and  Frauk Stratton came to the surface,  bringing Harry Beveridge in an unconscious condition with both arms  and legs broken and badly burned.  He cannot live. Sweeny and Strait  ton succumbed shortly after reaching the surface. Sweeny, who was  mainly instrumental in saving  Beveridge, was able to tell that he  climbed over the bodies of at least  three men on his way out. The  explosion occurred at the time  when the shifts were changing  from the day to the night turn, and  it is impossible to tell how many  were in the mine at the time, but  certainly no' less than thirty are  entombed.  At 4 o'clock this morning superintendent William McCune's hat  and a couple of his letters were  found, the hat being blown to fragments. There is no trace of him or  any of the rescuing party. The  Port Royal mines' are situated on  the Youghioghny river, 37 milesf rom  Pittsburg. They are owned by the  Pittsburg Coal Company. District  superintendant McCune, who is  reported killed at the head of a  band of volunteers, was one of the  most experienced and best known  miners iu Western Pennsylvania.  The Port Royal mines are located  on the thick vein coal belt and are  for that reason extremely gaseous  and dangerous. The state mining  officials have made their management the object of repeated caution.  All the rescuing parties have  come out of the burning mine. They  say that the black damp makes  work impossible- and they give up  hope of finding any of the men  alive.  him a seat on the judicial committee of the privy council was erroneous. His only ambition was to remain at the. head of the federal  government, or at least as the  leader of the Liberal party. He desired to live and die among his fellow countrymen.  Germany Will Keep a Garrison.  .London, June II;���Lord Cranborne, the under foreign secretary  replying to a question in the house  of commons today" as to whether  Germany meant to maintain a large  military force at Shanghai, said  the government understood Germany intended to continue keeping  a garrison there. No explanation  had been given by Germany as to  why she had concluded to follow  this policy.       -  TRANSVAAL   CONCESSIONS  CHINESE MUST BE AMUSED  AT  THE  INTERMINABLE   WRANGLE OVER INDEMNITIES.

O'Neill, McEwen & Simpson,  William Hunter & Co., and Morrison & Simpson. ������  WORKING A BIG PROPERTY  In Seymour Narrows.  J. Fred Howe arrived in Nelson  last evening from Victoria. Mr.  Howe is now interested with a Vancouver syndicate in the develop-  ment^flVlrat^JrlJiiiises^tcrbe'a^big  gold property on the Seymour  narrows, above Comox, on Vancouver Island. This syndicate had  Dan Taylor, formerly of Nelson,  out prospecting for some four years,  and among other claims he located  the three upon which development  is now being carried on.  The ledge through tho three  claims is some 200 feet wide and  carries an iron capping. Assays  from the surface of the capping  gave au indicated valuo of $5 in  gold and copper, and three assessments were performed in sinking a  shaft,upon the ledge. At a depth  of 30 feet it was apparent that the  shaft was getting well through che  capping and the copper and gold  values rose steadily until they  reached something like $13 to the  tou. It was then decided to run in  a crosscut on the ledge aud ascertain its width. This has now been  run in for 75 feet, and the values  indicated in the bottom of the  shaft are well maintained. The  work of completing the crosscut is  now in hand, and the indications  are that the syndicate has a big  thing in the property.  A dispute, however, has arisen  between tho syndicate and the  Esquimalt. & Nanaimo Railway  Company, the railway company  claiming the property on the ground  that it is an iron ledge, and that  under the terms of its grant ib is  entitled to all its base metals. This  claim of the railway company is  being resisted by the syndicate and  it has .secured the best legal opinions in support of the contention  that tho gold and copper values remove the property from the base  metal classification.  EASTERN CANADIAN NEWS  Wired in Brief.  QUEBEC, 11.���.Sheriff Gagnon  died at an early hour this morning.  He was one of the best known Liberals in this district. ,  CHARLOTTETOWN, 11.��� The  city council has passed a resolution  instructing the police to have nothing to do with tho enforcement of  the prohibition act. This throws  the responsibility, on the government.  TORONTO, 11.���At 11:30 this  morning thegeneral hospital authorities reported the ex-premier as  having passed a comfortable night  and was improved this morning.  The doctors now hope for his recovery.  LONDON, Out., 11.���The body of  Robert Fulford, who shot and  killed his mother-in-law*, Mrs. Rob-  -ert=McGord,=in=Arvn,^township=oiu  Saturday night, is lying at an  undertaking establishment here unclaimed.  MONTREAL, 11.���Tlio expected  action for damages was entered  today against archbishop Bond by  professor Steeii. He asks for $5000  damages and restoration of his  rights nnd privileges ns a clergyman of the diocese of Montreal.  STREETSVILLE, Ont., 11.���  Frank Rntledgo, 12 years of age, a  simple village boy, a week ngo a  bank robber and today a suicide,  was yesterday buried in the churchyard, tho body having been sent  on from Toronto to his parents, who  reside here.  MONTREAL, I J.���A Winnipeg  dispatch says that farmers evidently have great faith iu the crop outlook this season if a criterion cau  be taken by the quantity of machinery sold. One city traveler has  already sold 32 threshing machines,  aggregating $S4,000, for fall delivery.  MONTREAL, 11.���It is learned  here on good authority that 11. M.  Whitney has the contract for  building three of the largest and  finest steamers that can be built to  run between Sydney, C. B., and  Southampton, passage to be made  in four days. The ships are to be  built at the new yard to be established at Sydney.  MONTREAL, 11. ���Sir Wilfrid  Laurier paid a visit to L'Assomp-  tion college, L'Assomption, Quebec,  today and was given a reception by  his alma mater. Stops were made  at Maissoneuve aud Bout de Lisle,  where the premier delivered  speeches. At Maissoneuve he said  that the rumor  which ascribed to  London, June 11.���A blue book  was issued today containing the report of the Transvaal concessions  committee. It is clear, the commission avers, a state ''.which- has  annexed another is not legally  bound by s any ^contracts made by  the state which has ceased to exist  and that no court of law has jurisdiction to enforce such contracts if  the annexing state refuses to recognize them. The commission recommends that the government decline  to recognize the dynamite and  other concessions, and adds that it  is said Dr. Leyds and others have  received from' certain directors  shares and financial considerations.  Regarding the Netherlands ��� South  African railroad, the report, while  admitting that the concession was  legally granted, considers it injurious that the trunk railroad lines  should be,, the monopoly of a  single company. The concession  should be terminated even if  the company's conduct is not open  to complaint, brit its extraordinary  action in the Avar precludes the possibility of Its 'continuing under  British administration. Discussing  the position of the shareholders, the  report says the belligerent acts for  whieh all the shareholders were  legally responsible caused immense  damage to Great Britain, Capo  Colony and Natal. The British  government as an act of grace may  show some consideration to the  shareholders, but the commission  considers this should be postponed  till the shareholders have exhausted  =the-remedies^open^to^them_against_  the directors and until the damage  done by the company is made good.  RUN DOWN BY FIRE ENGINE  Harvard Student Instantly Killed.  CAMiminGic, Mass., June 11.���TI.  S. Bigelow, a freshman at Harvard,  was instantly killed by a chemical  engine of the Cambridge firo department tonight. Bigelow belonged to Buffalo, and had come to  Harvard from Exeter, where he had  been a prominent student aud class  poet. His parents are dead, but his  aunt and grandmother live in  Buffalo. A fire was found amoug a  pile of boards near the Harvard  architectural building by one of  the Harvard professors. An alarm  was rung'in, but before the firemen  responded professor Hollis and the  students had put the fire out. The  alarm, as usual, caused the  undergraduates to assemble,  and as .the firemen drove up  there was much jeering, as the  chemical engine was very late and  the crowd hooted the men. The  accident is described differently,  the firemen claiming that the horses  of the engine became excited at the  howling crowd and dashed forward  scattering it. The students claim  that tho driver, John Dowdis, deliberately drove his engine into the  crowd, Bigelow being caught under  the wheels. Other students were  knocked down, but only one had  auy injuries to speak of. As soon  as the students had realized what  had happened they made a demonstration, but cool-headed policemen  maintained control and the firemen  were allowed to return to their  stations.  Peki.v,   June 11.���A meeting of  the foreign ministers today showed  better prospects of their coining to  some definite   understanding,   the  majority favoring  the acceptance  of China's offer of 4(55,000,000 taels  as the amount of the indemnity to,  be paid to the powers.    There was  considerable discussion as  to how  the four per cent interest could be  collected.    Mr. Rockhill will present  at the next meeting an expression  of the American desire to finish the  business at   The Hague.A majority -  of the ministers confess themselves  against   the proposition,   thinking  that   within   the   next   ten   days  everything can be ad j usted.    In the  meantime the present military preparations for the  departure ot the1  troops and  the Chiness  intentions "'  regarding the  return  of the court .  to   Pekin   seem   premature.   ^The"  ministers  may force a decision iu'  the   matters , remaining to be ad-V  justed. ~ "  Mr. Rockhill has the translation -  of an edict by the wording of which  it would seem that the  library  of ,*  the forbidden  city was  intention-,  ally set  on  fire  by orders  of the  court and was not struck by lightning as was reported by the foreign.  guards.    The edict orders  the  destruction of all the archives.     The-,  fire must have happened  the  day  .  after the receipt of the telegraphic'  edict, although at the time a rumor *  of   the receipt of   the edict was  denied   by   prince   Ching   and  Li ~  Hung Chang.  St. Pi*tersuurg, June 11.���The -  impression prevails in official circles  here that the mode of paying the \  Chiuese indemnity will" not "be settled for a loug period, possibly, not  until the present ministers at Pekin  aro replaced. It is thought they  all would welcome a change of  post, and that new men would be  readier to settle the differences.  While Russia is not pressing tbe  guaranteed loan xiroposal, because _  the constitutional powers could nob  guarantee the loan without legislative consent, which would necessitate delay, tlie plan is not withdrawn. Tlie British provision 5*}  not acceptable, and minister Roc*- -  hill's arbitration proposition cause��  some wonder, since the mode r ?  payment is hardly considered ��.  suitable issue for a legal determination.    Sharkey Goes to the Floor.  CiiKVKijANn,���June���1 It��� Central-  i- 1,tl  *-��� .->,  ' *4  'A  armory, the largest  auditorium  in' ~ '  the city, was packed tonight with a  crowd tliat numbered between 8000   ,  and 10,000 people to see the wrestling match between  Tom  Sharkey  and   Tom   Jenkins,    chnmpion   of    ,  America.    Tlie terms of the contest  were  that Jenkins was  to  throw  Sharkey  twice  in an  hour.      The  first round started at 9:10, the men  struggling severely for  19 minutes,  when Jenkins threw Sharkey with  an   upright   double    Nelson   hold.  Once or twice in this round Sharkey  was ou the aggressive and Jenkins  had   to  take  care else  the  tables  would have been turned.    No holds  were barred.    After an interval of  15 minutes the second round began  the men struggling for  21 minutes,  when   Sharkey's    shoulders    were  forced  to  the  floor a second time  with a similar hold to  that  which -  put him  to  the  floor  in  the first  round.

The committee in charge of  land sports have arranged quite a  lengthy programme, and excepting  the prizes for horse races and drill-  .. ing contests, all prizes . will be  medals and trophies. No cash  prizes will, be given for baseball,  lacrosse, or football games; ,but  instead the expenses of visiting  teams will be paid.  Tub rumor that the Mine Owners'  Association has purchased the  Rossland Miner for $20,000, if true,  shows that the association has not  profited by its experience in trying  to keep the Nelson Miner from  going to the bone-yard. Neither  the Rossland Miner nor the Nelson  Miner are worth a dollar to the  Mine Owners' Association, for once  it becomes known that the association owns newspapers, the newspapers it owns will be entirely without influence. What the Mine  Owners' Association wants is not  newspapers, but sense enough to  .keep out of politics.

C.  eminent authorities on the question  as the Nelson Miner and Sandon  Mining Review. As a matter of  fact, there is no country on earth  that has more liberal laws than  British Columbia. The trouble in  British Columbia is that there are  too many soreheads in control of  newspapers and too many jack-leg  lawyers and tin-horn mine managers running loose. The opinions  of the soreheads in control of newspapers are of as little value as are  the opinions of the jack-leg lawyers  or the reports of the tin-horn mine  managers. .  To Mark Their Course.  Chicago, June 11.���A special to  the Chronicle from Quiney, III.,  says: Packed in hermetically sealed  cans forty balloons have been  shipped to Tromsoe, Norway, where  the outfit will bo added to the  equipment of the Baldwin-Zeigler  north pole expedition. These balloons are not to be used for carry-  iug passengers, but to mark the  path of the expedition. To each  will be attached ten buoys, ten feet  apart, hanging one below the other,  weighing ten pounds each, arranged  with a liberator for detaching the  buoys one at a time as they strike  the earth. The buoy will contain  a message showing the latitude  whence the balloon was sent up  and such other word as the explorers care to leave behind. Tlie  buoys are made of copper and cord  and are shaped like a top. In the  center is a hollow space which will  contaiu the messages. When a  certain   amount   of   the   gas   has  escaped the balloon will descend.  As sooii as it gets near enough to  the earth for one of the buoys to  strike the lower oue is immediately  detached, and, liberated from the  weight, the balloon at once begins  another ascent. This operation is  repeated automatically .until all of  the buoys have been dropped, when  the balloon, now emptied of its gas,  collapses and sinks to the ground.  As there are forty of these this  operation will be continued until  the 400 buoys are scattered over  the Arctic region. -  POPE IS IH COOP HEALTH  Cabled Reports Erroneous.  Rome, June 11.���The report  cabled to the United States that  the pope is again ill is without  foundation. His holiness is well  and yesterday granted an audience  to the Belgian Dominican ministers.  The statement circulated in America shows that the annual reports  of the pontiff's illness, critical condition and fainting fits have already  commenced, and as the summer  wanes he, no doubt, as usual, will  be reported at death's. door. The  truth is  his  holiness at  present is  "in exceptionally good health and "is  enjoying his daily drive and walk,  the heavy cares of state seeming to bear lightly on his old  age. The other day the pope  stood gazing at the yellow  strip of sunlit Mediterranean and  turning with a sigh to his nephew,  the pontiff used for the first time  since his "imprisonment" ''&' phrase  which might have been construed  as impatience at his captivity. Said  he, "How I wish I could go to sea.  I would readily renew my youth.  The last time I really stayed at sea  was about 55 years ago when I was  nuncio at Brussels. I then went  near Antwerp on the advice of a  physician and can vividly remember even now how cool the water  was, how invigorating and what  pleasure. I took in swimming. I  found the cure most benefiting."  As a matter of fact the pope has  such pleasant recollections of the  benefits of the sea that he decided  some time ago to try the Kneippe  cure for iheumatism, but this was  such a dismal failure that for a  long time after the word "water"  was offensive to the pope.  No Third Term.  Washington, D. C, June 11.���  The following statement has been  given out at the White House:  "I regret that the suggestion of a  third term has been made. I doubt  whether I am called upon to give  notice, but there are now questions  of the gravest importance before  the administration and the country  ���and their just consideration  should not be prejudiced in the  public mind by even the suspicion  of the thought of a third term. In  view, therefore, of the reiteration of  the suggestion of it, I will say now,  once for all, expressing a long settled conviction, that I not only am  not and will nob be a caudidaco  for a third term, but would not  accept a nomination for it were it  oil'ered. My only ambition is to  serve through my second term to  the acceptance of my countrymen,  whose generous confidence 1 so  deeply appreciate, and then with  them to do my duty in the ranks of  private citizenship.

Whitney of  New York, who leased Volodyvski,  the English Derby winner, from  lady Meux, is extremely anxious to  buy the colt and has offered her  $75,000 in cash, besides $20,000, one-  half of the Derby winnings, or lady  Meux's share in case the horse won.  Mr. Whitney's lease of the horse  does not expire until .the-fall of  1902. Every offer made by Mr.  Whitney up to date for the purchase of the colt lady Meux has  refused.  ENGAGEMENT  RINGS . . .
