NELSON, B. C, SATURDAY, JULY G, 1901  A  FIVE CENTS  CONFIDENCE IS MISPLACED  POLICE  ARE  NOW  LOOKING FOR  ROBERT THOMPSON.  H. A Prosser Has a Check for Twenty-five Dollars Whicli He Would  Like to Have Negotiated.  The city, police are looking for a man  named Robert Thompson, who if 'all  accounts of him are true, is probably  as smooth a crook as ever shook the  dust of Nelson's streets off his feet.  Something like six months ago Thompson was caught in the. act of going  through, one of- the rooms over the  Manhattan saloon. When charged with  theft on this occasion Thompson set  up a plea of mental aberration, but it  did not work, and he received a sentence "of six months'- imprisonment in  the provincial jail. Here Thompson  tit once made himself a warm favorite  with -his jailers, doing everything that  was assigned to him with such cheerfulness that the jail officials were almost sorry when his term expired on the  I Sth of June last:  Thompson came out of the jail with  just 25 cents.-and lie had no difficulty  in persuading the jail officials that this  amount was insufficient for a man to  hegih... life' with when '-'handicapped by  a jail: record.. Thompson was smart  enough not to **j*k' for financial assistance. All ho desired was to be placed  in a position where ho could earn an  honest livelihood or at least sufficient  to take him to some other placo where,  his former disgrace would not follow  him and where he could begin life  anew. This was not an unreasonable  request and it appealed to John A. Turner, government agent, who had heard  what an excellent reputation Thompson made while serving his six months'  sentence. To him Thompson only asked  for a couple of days' work, and the government agent decided to give it to  him" if it lay in his power, lie forthwith gave him a note to William Waldie, who has charge of some road work  now going on and requested Waldie to  give him a few days' work if possible.  Thompson lost no time in presenting  his letter to Waldie, who told him to  report in the morning, when ho would  be put at work.   This was the.last .that  ��� Waldie saw of tho man who was so.  anxious to begin life . anew in the'  straight and narrow way. The following day, however, the government agent  saw his^ man and asked him why he  was not at work. Thompson's reply  was that' he had reported for duty, but  that it was raining and that he would  not go back again; until the following  day. The next day the. government  agent, saw his man again, and his excuse this time was that Norman T. MeLeod of - the West Transfer Compauy  had promised him a steady job teaming  wliich he thought would' be better than  H. A. Prosser called at the government  road. Nothing more was seen of  Thompson and. he had dropped out of  mind until yesterday afternoon, when  H. A. Pi'ossner called at the government  office to inquire about a. check for .?25  drawn in Thompson's favor on th'e Canadian  Bank of Commerce and  bearing  _what_puri)o_rtefl' to be_the^gnature_oil  William Waldie. As road foremen on  government work do not pay their men  off with their private'checks the paper  which Mr. Prosser presented was at  once spotted as cueer and it was up to  Prosser to tell what he. knew of Thompson. His story was that Thompson came  to' him with a note purporting to be.  signed by Waldie, in which it was stated  tliat Thompson was employed on the  government roads under him and asking that .Prosser keep him going until-he  would receive his next pay. The scheme  worked and Prosser advanced several  Bums, waiting for the end of the mouth  to come around. On Saturday, June 29,  Thompson came around for the last  time. He said ho was going to get h'.s  money that day and asked Prosser what  he owed him on account of the advances made. Prosser stated the amount  and Thompson then went out. He returned in a few minutes with the cheek  for $25 and asked Prosser to take what  ���was coming to him out of it. This  Prosser did. He put the check in iiis  till and kept it there until yesterday,  when he thought he might as well turn  it into money, only to find that it was  worthless, and that by keeping it so  long he had' given the man who victimized him a chance to make good his  escape.               >    .   ���  Joe Is a Bad "Injun."  Joe PeeL the Indian now undergoing  ���a 30-rtay sentence upon a charge of car ���  ���rying a revolver, will be brought ..before  .stipendiary magistrate Crease this morning upon several new charges. For several weeks nast a number of Betty  thefts have been committed in the  neighborhood of Robson and Castlegar  and for a time the provincial police offi  cer, Alan Forrester, was at a loss t.i  locate the culprit. The most serious  offense of the lot was the breaking into  of the Livingstone store at Robson.  where the till was neatly tapped and a  number of articles of merchandise wore  also taken. PeeL the Indian, was  known to have been in the neighborhood  of the store at the timo of the burglary,  but the job was done so neatly that the  police did not credit him with the offense, and it was only after every other  clue had been run to the earth that constable Forrester save his attention to  the Indian. He was caught at Trail,  however, just after he had made a  dicker for his cayuse preparatory to  getting out of the country. When arrested he was found to have two suits  of clothes and' three shirts on, one of  the shirts being one of the articles  taken from the Livingstone store. Ko  was also carrying a large Colt's levol-  ver and to gain time a charge was laid  against him for carrying firearms. F >i  this- he was given a term of 30 days.  Following his conviction' upon this  charge the Indian confessed to the burglary, of the Livingstone store, and aiso  to theft from othe hotel at Castlegar,  and ho accompanied officer Forrester  to where he had cached most of the  booty. ��� The money taken from the Livingstone store was all in small change,  principally in nickels andlO-cent pieces,  and at the time of- his arrest the Indian had a tobacco, pouch filled with  such coins on his person. The police  now suspect that Pell is the man who  committed a" number of other thefts  from the Italian laborers working on  the construction, as well as the man  who entered the. office of contractor  Gunn some time back, but as all these  parties have since left the cuuitry it  will be impossible to bring these home  to him. The shop breaking charge if  proved, however, - carries a pea.V'y of  14 years, so that other charges will not  be necessary in order to put fif Indian out of harm's way should such a  course be deemed necessary. ���-'.  ENGLAND'S NEW WARSHIPS  .  Vessels to Be Built.  LONDON, July 5.���In the house of  commons' today Arnold Foster, the secretary of the admiralty, announced that  the year's shipbuilding programme includes three battleships of a new improved class/ six cruisers of the Mon-:  mouth class and 10 improved torpedo  boat destroyers. The battleships wiil  be of 1(>,500 tons and 20 feet longer than  thoso of the Formidable class. Their indicated horse 'power will be 18,000 and  their speed IS 1-2 knots. The armor  of the new battleships will be a bolt  eight to nine inches thick. A peculiar  feature of the now ships will be six-  inch guns not mounted in separate casements, but closed in a battery with  seven-inch armor. The ship's armament will consist of four forward fire,  two 12-inch guns, two 9.2-inch suns and  two. six-inch guns. The aft fire will  bo of tho same formidable character.  It is thought these ships will compare-  favorably with anything building by  any European power. The new ships  will be named King Edward, Dominion  and Commonwealth, to commemorate  fhe great support rendered to king and  country-by the .two great-.branches - cf-  -the kindred rac'd. The cruisers'"will bo  of- 9S00 tons and will havo a speed of  IS knots. Their armament will be  heavier than the Monmouth. It is believed that the cruisers which are about  to be laid, down will be equal to anything likely to be brought against them.  The new torpedo boat destroyers will be  of stronger construction. In regard to  hospital ships the secretary of' the admiralty said Great Britain now. had in  the Mediterranean through the generosity of an American citizen, Bernard  Baker, president of the Atlantic Transport line, the well-equipped Maine. All  the new ships will be fitted with wireless telegraphy, as will also all the other  ships as they come in for repairs. Efforts are being made to overcome tho  arrears in shipbuilding and, the secretary added, the government is now  able to supply guns as they are neel-  ed. The secretary of the admiralty also  "SaidTtlfercr"was-:an-absdliitcT-deterniiiia~  tion upon the part of the admiralty to  find the best type of boiler and the government was watching with interest a  German experiment of combining cylindrical and water tube boilers in the  samo ship.  LONDON, July 5.���In the house oi  lords today the earl of Selborn, first  lord of the admiralty, in a statement  on the present naval position of Great  Britain, said that the remainder of the  year l'JOl would witness the completion  of three armored cruisers of the Cressy  class, four first-class battleships of the  class of the Formidable, and two first-  class barbette ships of the class of the  Canopus. Lord Selborn said the first  half of 1S02 would sec the completior  of two more vessels of tho Cressy class,  two others of the Formidable class, one  armored cruiser of the Monmouth class  and three armored cruisers of the Drake  class. The first lord of the admiralty  added the total number of destroyers  built or building was 113 and of tlu-  five submarine vessels already ordered  the first would be ready for trial next  September.  Bloodthirsty Dagoes.

Eidenour,  aged SO years, stabbed in the heart;  William Eidenour, a son, left jugular  vein cut and stabbed in the heart. The  injured are: Phillip Eidenour, -a son,  stabbed over the eyes, in the breast and  on the leg, may die; and Robert Eidenour, a son, cut on both arms. According  to Mrs. Phillip Eidenour of Stueben-  ville, herself and husband, with their  baby, were visiting Mr. Eidenour's parents and as they were leaving the home  of Mr. Eidenour's parents the father's  family went up on the main road to see  them orf. Three Italians, part of a gang  working on the railroad, came along and  one of them said something to Robert  Eidenour. who' called them vulgar  names. The three Italians then flashed  stilletos, killed the father and William  almost instantly, cut Phillip frightfully  and after stabbing Mrs. Phillip Eidenour  and Robert fled.  LEANDER DOES TBE TRICK BY ONE LENGTH  Most Exciting Race Ever Seen at Henley.  were well and happyl It is believed in  Glasgow that if they reach the Little  Rocky mountains the robbers will not  be captured. Nothing,is known in Glasgow of the report that the robbers were  surrounded and a battle imminent.  FROM  PROVINCIAL POINTS  HENLEY. July 5���The disappointment of all Americans at Heuley at the  Leander Rowing Club crew this morning defeating the crew of the University  of., Pennsylvania is great. There was  bright sunshine and puffy cross winds  blew from the Bucks shore, slightly  favoring the Leanders. The following  of the British crew evinced the greatest confidence, and Leander money, was  everywhere available, but this confidence never exceeded anything beyond  even money. A Philadelphia occupant  of a houseboat is said to have invested  ��500 in favor of his country's crew.  The following are the names of the two  crews; Leander���C. A. Williams, bow;  H. J. Duvallon, W. Dudley Ward, G. M.  Matlandi CD. Burnell, J. E. Payne,  C. J. D. Goldie, R. Betherington Smith,  stroke; C. S.- <MacLagan, coxswain.  Pennsylvania���R. R. Swan, bow; R.  H. Eisenbray,.. F. L. Davenport, N.  Crowther, jr., A. H. Flickwer, G.S.  Allyn, W. G. Gardiner, stroke; L. J.  Smith, coxswain. :t,;  Never before was such cheering heard  at Henley as greeted the contestants:  for the. grand challenge all down the  course. The result^called forth delirious  cheers from the partisans of the Leander. The Pennsylvanians; reached their  boathouse; at 11:10 o'clock apparently  as fit1 as possible, while-many of the  followers of the red and blue showed  marks of the intense strain of the final"  minutes. The crew stripped, chatted  and laughed as coolly as though going  out for practice. Ellis Ward, the American coach, placed a miniature American flag upon the rudder of his boat as  the coxswain came to the boathouse and  said to Smith: "Keep that as'far ahead,  my boy, as you can."  Both crews, at the start, showed no  trace of nervousness and were sent  away in capital style, the Pennsylvanians rowing 43 to the minute and the  Leanders 42. At the end of Temple  island the Americans led by three men.  At Fawley the time was 3 minutes  25 2-5 seconds, with" the Leanders three  feet ahead. From there it was ding  dong, a splendid struggle, out of which  the Leanders gained inch by inch. .The  mile wasreach"ed"in"5"minutes arid'15  seconds, with the Leanders half a length  ahead, whicli they increased to three-  quarters of a length at the Isthmain.  The Pennsylvanians made a desperate  spurt, but it was no good and two men  weakened perceptibly opposite the grand  stand.  The Leanders won by a length. Time,  7 minutes 44 seconds. "It was a grand  race," said coach Ward, as the Leanders^ crossed the finish line. "We were  simply outrowed and have no explanation to,-make." It certainly was the  best and most exciting contest ever  seen at Henley. ��� There was scarcely  the distance of three feet between them  half the way down. The cheering for  the contestants as they struggled for  'the lead .was terrific. Even Henley  had never before heard such wild applause as greeted the Pennsylvanians  and the Leanders all down the course  and_the_cheering7*^s^elirKmsJ[rojn^the  partisans of the  Leanders  as  the  lal>~  ter's boat crossed the line at the finish  ahead of the Pennsylvanians.  Theodore Cook, the Oxford oarsman,  wrote the following dispatch for the  Associated Press: "The morning dawned with splendid weather.   There was a  slight  breeze   off  the  Bucks,   but  the  wind fell towards noon and there was  very; little difference indeed in the stations.    As the Pennsylvanians paddled  down to the start, all of them in huge  straw hats, the   crowd gave   them   a  rousing   reception,, and  they   paddled  gaily through, the crowd towards Temple  island.    A. few  minutes  after the  Leanders came out the cheering grew  louder still, for there was an, enormous  crowd present, as after the Pennsylvanians' two victories the excitement was  intense,  for' the Americans  were" confident,   and  though the  Leanders  had  said nothing, their, beautiful form, together with  suppleness  and  elasticity,  spoke volumes for .their determination  to win, as^ they;did, with precisely the  result I have invariably predicted ever  since  I  saw them at their  first work  at Henley.   Umpire Williams was coach,  with R. Hart, the Pennsylvanians' manager.    The boats came to the pontoon  before the appointed hour,* and all the  Pennsylvania  men  seemed  happy  and  comfortable,   especially   No.   6   (G.   S.  Allyn)   and   stroke   (J.   P.   Gardiner).  Captain   Flickwer   watched    the   wind  carefully, but it was worth only a quarter of a length at the most, for the first  quarter   of  a  hriile,   and; it  became   a  following breezeif but no advantage to  either,^ as soon A as v the boats were past  the farm.    The ropes1'used to hold the.  boats   steady  were  partly  pulled   taut  as   umpire   Williams1^ leaned   over  the  boats from the launch and said:    "As  soon as this puff;of wind has passed I  will start, you. -I  shall say 'Are! you  ready' once.    If 'there, is no answer I  will say 'Go.'   The Pennsylvanians then  squared their blades and the coxswain  put a megaphone to his mouth, while  everything grew quiet.   Williams' words  came with the shock of a cannon:  "Are  you ready; go."   The Leanders' second  stroke   was   in   before' Gardiner's,   and  -for.a short time the pink oars were a  few feet ahead,~ but the Pennsylvanians  soon wiped out that difference and at  the end of the first minute both bow  and Eisenbray,'No. 2, could see the back  of the Leander bow.    At this sight all  the first  four  oars rowed like  demons  and   the   Pennsylvanians   were   going  faster than they ever were before.   But  they also had a faster crew beside them,  for now the gap between the boats stayed  still  and   now  it  lessened   inch   by  inch.    Payne and Burnell of the Lean-  dere   were   swinging   out   and   putting  their oars through in great style, and  Flickwer beginning.to watch them, and  " "as botli "c'rews'tit highest pressure passed  the farm the Leanders drew up exactly  level.   Then came that crisis in the race  which   I   foretold.     It  was   a   splendid  sight to see the American boys refuse  to let the Leanders up.    They slashed  their big blades through the water: and  put in all the steam they knew.   Crowther and Davenport were especially efficient, and the boat fairly rushed under  their efforts.   Still the Leanders stayed  where they were.   It was no further forward, but' it was no further backward,  and every man was swinging right up  to his work, as elastic and as free as at  the start;     and  now  that' long swing  began to "tell.    It was but two feet advantage  the Englishmen  had  as  both  boats passed the half .way at 3:25.   Gardiner,   the   Pennsylvania   stroke,   then  put on a magnificent spurt and worked  his crew up to 42.    But they could not  do  it.    The  Leanders  only  lengthened  ^ut_ata slower jyate ol strikingand_ went  further away with every strokedTliey"  were half a length ahead as the mile  was finished.    Never have I seen such  frantic   and    continuous    cheering   as  greeted   both   crews   while   they   raced  down that brilliant lane of excited spectators, every one of whom was wearing  colors and shouting as Pennsylvania  made still another effort just after the  Leander lawn was passed, but two of  the first four oars were nearly finished.  They had worked like heroes at the impossible task that had been set them of  using arms and legs alone against the  English body swing, and now exhausted  nature claimed her tribute and several men lost the full power'-.. of their  drive. They had done such splendid  'work during the first half mile that I  was not surprised to see Davenport; and  Allyn too spent to beat the men in front  or them. Crowther, too, seemed terribly distressed and how he and Flickwer did, so well as they did still I cannot understand. The boat rolled a  little as she felt their crew might crack  her at any moment. Stroke side began to'pull bow side around and the  indomitable Gardiner called on his men  for the final effort. They could not respond. Humanity could do ho more for  the Pennsylvanians had never let up for  a second since the start. There had'been  none of that paddling which helps a  crew so irnuch to get its wind, and there  was, therefore, no spurt at the finish,  as there had been in the first two heats.  But no crew could ',��� have ��� rowed more  pluckily or had a fairer trial and-when  the Leanders won in 7 minutes and, 44  secorids; the- losers were cheered as  heartily as the. winners. Tms must  convince Ellis Ward that the last crew  in England "or America which uses the  professional sculling style should change  it for the one which gives the men more  chance. Of course Dublin will give the  Pennsylvanians no trouble whatever and  they are no more: worth arguing about  than were London and the Thames here  a few days ago. Dr. William White approached me as a prominent member  of the Pennsylvania University Athletic  Club committee as to the possibility"  of the winning English ' University at  the next March boat race (Oxford and  Cambridge) coming over to race at  Poughkeepsie next July, _ offering to  make the English crew Pennsylvania's  guests from the time they reached Philadelphia. Of course his courteous suggestion was much appreciated over here,  and though an old Oxford oar myself  I have not the slightest authority to  say what will be the result. But I expressed to Dr. White my personal opinion that after the Oxford or Cambridge  crew had been broken up after the race  it would be impossible- to collect it  again, because its. members >vould form  the backbone, in each case of the various" crews at Henley, and the success  of the regatta might' seriously suffer  by their absence and I believe the president of the club would prefer not to  harm the English rowing for one season to enjoy the. privilege and pleasure  of accepting Dr. White's suggestion."  After the race umpire Pittman said:  "I may tell you now that we have been  more afraid of the Pennsylvanians than  any American crew that ever visited  Henley. Their performance today justified it. However, we cannot air win.  I see no reason to alter our style of  rowing." The regatta progressed rather  tamely after the final heat of the grand  challenge cup. Many of the Americans  ���left early in the afternoon. Everyone  was sorry to see Eton lose the ladies'  challenge plate. The Leander four  rowed a terribly punishing race for the  stewards' cup, Trinity leading throughout. The Leanders were greatly ex-  hausted. The prizes were presented at  "the grand^tanli^iminelliately-aftei^tire"  regatta. The marquise D'Hautpole,  granddaughter of one of the founders of  the regatta, presented the prizes. Colonel Willen made a capital speech, in  which he paid a tribute to the American  crew.       ��  Due to the Current.  ST. JOHN, N. B., July 5.���The court  which has been investigating the wreck  of the Orient Steam Navigation Company's steamship Lusitania, captain  McKay, from Liverpool June 18th for  Montreal, which went ashore near Renews just before dawn June 26th holds  that the disaster was due to an unknown  and erratic current, which, threw the  ship thirteen miles out of her course.  The court has restored the captain's  certificate owing to his excellent handling of the passengers after the wreck.  PROMINENT  GREENWOOD   BANK  MANAGER PEAD.

NEW YORK, July 5.-7A severe thunder storm swept over this city this afternoon and brought with it comfort to  millions of heat stricken New Yorkers.

EASTERN CANADIAN NEWS  Wired in Brief  EVERYBODY MUCH PLEASED  At Completion of Telegraph Line.  PORT SIMPSON, July 5.���At a meeting convened at the Great Northern  Hotel June 20th a. most hearty vote  of thanks was proposed by J. M. Lindsay and seconded by"'the Rev. William  Hogan to J. B. Charleston, the superintendent of public works In..the Yukon district, "for the very able way in  which he had carried out the construction of the telegraph line from Port  Simpson to Hazelton within the prescribed time, and by so doing has placed  us in communication with the outside  world. The community at large feel  deeply grateful to the government, J.  B. Charleston and his splendid staff,  from the highest in command to the  lowest, who have nobly done their duty  to Canada and the empire, and at the  same time won the respect of the northern coast by their obliging disposition,  friendly bearing and good conduct. We  know the almost surmountable obstacles that these men had to contend with  ���heavy timbers, waters of the rivers,  enough to daunt the boldest hearts���  yet they have carried their work out to  a successful issue. Canada may well  be proud of such sons and_ Wilfred  Laurier's government of such faithful  servants. May they long be spared to  work faithfully for this country." J.  B. Charleston replied as follows: "When  I came out here my instructions were  to build the Yukon line and to shove it  through as quickly as possible. My instructions also were, too, that the line  was to be a humane line; after that, as  near as possible, a commercial, but at  no time was it to be a political line.  When I came here I knew very little  about the country, but the government  wanted connections made quickly as  possible' and I was told to rush the  work and we rushed it. I am glad that  I have met with the approval of the citizens of Port .Simpson."  Challenger Does Better.  ROTHESAY, July 5.���in a second trial  today the cup challengtr fared better.  The course was a broad reach down the  channel. The yachts rounded Garrick  Head with booms well off. The wind  then lightened, though it was still fresh  enough to wet the decks. Jib topsails  were sent up and the yachts stood up  channel close hauled, pointing high and  cutting a slight sea with great speed.  The challenger gained slightly on each  board across the channel. Half way  home the Shamrock II led by one and  a half minutes. Then for no apparent  reason she lowered her stay sail, thus  losing the lead. Reaching home the  Shamrock I led by half a length.  Plans of the A. O. H.  BUFFALO, July 5.���-The national  board of Ancient Order of Hibernians  in America voted today to proceed at  once with a plan promulgated some time  ago whereby the A. O. H. in America  will affiliate with the branches of the  order in Great Britain, Australia and  several of the smaller colonics of the  British empire. It is expected that this  can be accomplished within a year. Details of the plan will not be made public  at this time.  Fatal Gas Explosion.  CINCINNATI, July 5.���Four men were  fatally hurt and three others seriously  injured by a gas explosion in Pit No. 1  of the series of shafts of the now water  works for the Torence road late this  afternoon.  HOT ON  ROBBERS'   TRAIL  Sheriff's Posse but a Little Behind.  HAVRE, Mont, July 5.���The train  robbers who held up the Great Northern llyer Wednesday afternoon near  Wagner have been recognized as the  famous Curry outlaws. "Kid" Curry  Is the leader. Another is named Long  Bole; the third man is unknown... All  use the Texas dialect. A "cowpuncher"  riding north from the Missouri river  met the three bandits yesterday about  70 miles south of Malta. They asked the  "cowpuncher" to notify the men following them that they were going south.  The "cowpuncher" had only gone about  four miles when he met sheriff Griffith  with a posse of 45 men, comprising the  best gun men in western Montana. They  were only about eight miles behind the  robbers. The posse is growing larger  'steadily and their horses are being  changed frequently. The 'cowpuncher"  said the third man in the party had a  bandage around his head. This was  probably caused by one of the two shots  fired by sheriff Griffith, who was on the  train. At present it is not known how  much money was taken, but it is now estimated about $45,000. It is now stated  that brakeman Woodside was taken to  Great Falls hospital last night. It will  bo necessary to amputate his arm.  HELENA, Mont., July 5.���A special  to the Herald from Glasgow, the county  seat of Valley county, this afternoon  states that two possees are pursuing the  Great Northern robbers, and one posse  following the route taken by the robbers and the other taking a crosscut toward the Little Rocky mountains, to  which section it is believed the highwaymen are heading. A ranchman  named Walsh met the robbers. They  told him to inform the sheriff that they  NAPANEE, Ont., July 5.���J. W. Bell,  M.

OTTAWA, July 5.���The collecting  cards whoch are being issued in connection with lady Minto's cottage hospital  scheme are being applied for in a very  satisfactory manner, and some details  of the numbers out and their whereabouts may not be uninteresting at this  stage. Though^Uie cards have at pres-  ent mainly gone to-tlie~larger centersT  it is hoped that as the scheme becomes  better known applications will come in  from those wishing to act as collectors  from the country districts. Of the dollar cards, known as. series "A," 45 have  up to date been applied for, and it is  interesting in this connection to state  that thrte of them. Al, collected by  lady C. Davies; AG, of wliich Miss Scott  had charse, and A7, Mrs. Crombie's  card, all In Ottawa, have'been returned  filled up. Of the 50 cards,. or series  "IJ," some 31 are in the hands of collectors, BIG, Miss Hickson of Montreal,  having been already completed and sent  in. And of those of the value of 25  cents, or scries "C," some 73 have so  far been applied for. It Is most satisfactory and augurs well for the success  of the movement that some 150 cards  have been applied for In less than six  weeks.  Strikers Gradually Returning.  TORONTO, July 5.���There is trouble  among the Toronto committee of the  striking C. P. R. trackmen. The Montreal committee have been openly accused by them of suppressing general  manager McNicoll's letter of June 12th  outlining the advances and concessions  made until after the strike was ordered  and their refusal to now give any reason for their peculiar action has created  a feeling of hostility against Wilson and  his colleagues. The press generally condemns the stubborn attitude of the men  and advise that the strike, which is only  entailing hardships upon them and  likely to lose many of them their permanent positions,  be called  off.  ST. JOHN, N. B., July 5.���The general superintendent of the C. P. R. reports a full section force between St.  John, N. B., and Vanceboro, Maine, and  many of the gangs on the branch lines  have returned to work today. The  Maine Central strike having been called  off without any concessions beyond  what were previously offered by the  company is having its effect on the C.  P. R. strikers.  SHERBROOKE, Quebec, July 5.���Several of the striking C. P. R. sectionmen  gangs have returned to work in this  neighborhood. Over half of the old  gangs are now at work between St.  Johns, Quebec, and Megantlc.  II  GREENWOOD.

ROSSLAND, July 5.���The consensus  of opinion here Is that the labor troubles that threatened the prosperity of  the Rossland camp have been settled.  The members of the Miners' Union  voted as to whether they would strike  in sympathy with the smelter .men at  Northport, and it is understood the vote  was strongly adverse to such a move.  All the mines with one exception are  working and several are increasing their  crews and preparing to ship on an- px-  tenslve scale. The Jron Mask, for in-  "stance"ris_employing~*r=dbuble"for'ce"anuJ=-  shipping. over treble the amount of ore  ordinarily produced. The Homeseake  is preparing to make its first shipment  to the Trail smelter tomorrow and-  other mines are opening up and giving  employment to more men. The city  should have one of the most prosperous  seasons it has experienced in several  years, the large increases in the aggregate pay roll* fully justifying this forecast.       - " ���   - -    ���;  Eastern Weather.

THOMSON STATIONERY CO. ltd  the postponment of the trial granted  yesterday at a special session of the  house of lords to August 6th was insuf-.  ficient to enable his lawyers to prepare  his defence, and he therefore elected  to be tried on the original date, July  ISth.  c PHILADELPHIA, July 5.���Delegates  representing workingmen in all branches  of the leather trade in this country aud  Canada at a meeting in this city have  ���formed the Amalgamated Leather  Works Association of America. Mar-  ceiltis Waste of Philadelphia was elected  president and Dennis Healy of Lowell,  Mass., secretary. The constitution adopted states that the objects of the association aro to gain increased wages, decreased hours cf labor and better conditions of work for its members.  WASHINGTON, "July 5.���M. Do Wol-  lant the charge of the Russian embassy  here, today called at the state department and in behalf of his government  formally acknowledged the receipt of  secretary Hay's note respecting the imposition of Russian retaliatory tariff  duties. The Russian note is understood  to be indefinite in terms, the principal  purpose being to keep the issue between  the two governments in its present condition until count Cassini, the Russian  ambassador, arrives at St Petersburg  and has had an opportunity to confer  with the foreign office officials. There is,  however, an earnest expression of desire on the part of Russia to cultivate  the warmest relations with the United  States not only politically, but commercially and industrially.  X.  Is it hot strange that while the "blue  ruin" press-are howling about-the mining-laws of this province that the London & British Columbia Gold Fields,  Limited, is picking up mines; in an out-  of-the-way district-' and ��� paying big  money for them? If our mining laws  , were so bad as they are represented to  be by these senseless scribblers,''.British  capitalists would not look at a mine in  this province, let alone purchase it.  - It seems that Skagway is not the only,  town on the Pacific Coast that has p'eo-.  pie who get mad at the sight of bunting. Victoria, also, has, some of these  'super-sensitive individuals. It is a pity  that the Millers of Oregon' and the  Jeeves of British Columbia were not in  positions where they would stand some  ��� show of spilling blood in defending the  flags of their respective countries;   but  vnone  of such gentry ever get to  ithe  front when there is danger.

He may never be able to  return to South Africa. Although his  illness is kept secret his friends know  he is threatened with general paralysis.  His now. decrepit form, gaping mouth,  hanging lips and staring, haggard eyes  are in strange contrast with that lively,  erect stature I cr\n remember when I  met him in 1893. .Cynic and dreamer he  -appeared to me, but a marveloiisly powerful personality, a .dreamer who :was.  preparing a new map of South Africa  and. a cynic, who has prepared to carry  .out his. plans .regardless of means.

The negroes opened  .fire on the. officers and the latter 'returned,,to the town. About 20 men returned to the scene and commenced  firing on the negroes. About 15 negroes we're in the house. They returned-the fire, but soon there was a break  for the woods. In the running fight  that followed three negroes are said to  have been fatally shot and, a number of  others wounded.

PARIS, July -i.���One more tragic epi-  . sode has entered the life of Sybil Sanderson,   the   beautiful  American   prima  donna. There is no woman living m ttie  same number of years has seen so much  romance,    tragedy,   sorrow,    so   many  ���strange  vicissitudes of fortune as this  lovely*'Californian. On the night of her  brilliant   return   to   the   stage   of   the  Opera   Comiqno,   Sybil   Sanderson   was  deluged with flowers. Among them was  a  magnificent  bouquet  of white  roses,  by far the finest of all these floral tributes.   Tlio   prima ".donna   examined   it  with pleased attention, curious to learn  who had  sent her��� so charming a gift.  She found no card with it, but a dagger.  It  was   no  toy  weapon,   biit"a  heavy,  sharp, steel dagger,.such as might easily  -be driven to tho heart of a man or woman. On the blade was engraved roughly   the   mysterious   word   "Duplicate."  What could this word mean? There is  (���Me obvious explanation that seems to  have suggested itself to many persons.  This is that the dagger is a duplicate  of one that the sender will use with his  own hand. Aliss Sanderson has been so  shocked by the incident that she has not  ventured out of her house since, except  in a cab to drive to the theatre.  Her  house is guarded by the police and only  very old friends are ''allowed to see her.  Who  is  the person who sent the dagger'to   Sybil   Sanderson?   That   is   the  c'uestion  now agitating all Paris. It is  the talk of the whole city, of the newspapers and of the boulevards. Was it a  man or a woman? It might have been  either, for jealousy is not peculiar to  one sex. Miss Sanderson has given no  explanation of the mystery. She is practically barricaded in her house and-will  see no stranger. To all who are familiar  with her career it is not surprising that  such an incident as this should happen,  but that does not make it any the less  interesting.'. Murder and suicide in' tin-  highest ranks of European society have  followed  the triumphant hut. devastating progress of Sybil Sanderson. Many  known incidents in her earlier career in  Paris have been revived as suggesting  an oxpla*mtion_of jjie mysterious���dag^.  ^,*TWrno"wirvvell substantiated report  of a much more recent romance is gaining currency. It is said that a French  nobleman belonging to the most exclusive group of families descended  from  the ancient regime,,and at the same time  a leader of modern fashionable society,  has been madly infatuated with hei' fer  several months. Ho is an owner of famous race horses in France and England,  and a leader in international sports. His  name is familiar in every civilized country. He showered upon Miss Sanderson  flowers and presents, but was regarded  by her with nothing more than polite  interest.  It is   well   known  that  Sybil  Sanderson pays little attention to those  she does not care for, however high their  rank may be. Finally she became so displeased with this man that oho refused  to see him nt her home at any time.  Finding no other way of meeting her,  he lay in wait one morning as sho came  away from a rehersal at the opera house.  He attempted to join her and was repulsed  very abruptly. Sho got into her  carriage, and  he put his hand on tho  door, thrust his head through the door  and shouted in an infuriated voice:  "You will be sorry for this. I will  show you that I am not a man to bo  treated in this manner." Is this tlie  man who seut the dagger? That is  the phase of the mystery that is'now  uppermost. If he did, his infatuation  for Sybil Sanderson must have driven  him to insanity. He has been hitherto  regarded' as a very sane man of the  world. His threat as given above would  ordinarily have been regarded as meaning that he would have her engagement broken, or would hire a band of  strong men to hiss her down, or would  do some other gentlemanly act known  to Parisian patrons of the drama. There  is another explanation. This nobleman has a brilliant and handsome wife,  famous as a leader of Parisian society.  She is fiercely jealous of his infatuation  for the singer, and does not know, perhaps, how contemptuously he has been  rejected. Perhaus it was she who sent  the dagger. There is, after all, a somewhat feminine air about this method of  frightening a woman. That is as much  light as can be thrown on the dagger  mystery at present. In connection with  this mystery it is interesting to recall  some features of the brilliant, curiously  stormy career of Sybil Sanderson.   She  London Ofiice, 60 Lombard Streot, El. O.

HOLT,  Manager Nelson Branch.  went from California to Paris, and immediately became the favorite pupil of  Massenet, the most prominent composer  in France.    From her debut she found  success.     Paris    raved   over    her    as  "Phyrne."    It was said she could sing  higher and clearer than any Avoman who  ever lived.    Besides "Phryne" she sang  "Mammon,"   "Esclarmonde"   and  other  roles that bore a curious similarity. She  went  to  Brussels,  and  there  not  only  the populace but the count of Flanders,  brother of the king, admired her. Prince  Baldwin  of Flanders,  the count's son,  was shot dead one evening, .and it is  generally believed that his own father  shot him on account of a common interest in Sybil Sanderson.    Four years  ago she married Antonio Terry, the famous   Cuban   millionaire.     She   retired  from the stage, and everybody supposed  that she would live as a great lady for  the rest of her life.   She was stricken  very ill with a form of paralysis, and  her husband lavished untold gold in his  efforts   to   save  her.     She   had   barely  recovered when he died. To everybody's  profound astonishment he left her almost penniless.   For a time she was in a  state of deep melancholy.   Her attempt-  el suicide was once reported.   Then she  returned   to   the stage  once  more  and-  at once renewed her old triumphs. Now  another mystery checkers this! complicated career. '������  HEAD   OFFICK. TORONTO.

From the manner in which the offer was received by  the members of the committee when it  was read in council, it goes without  saying that it will be turned down, but  it is open to the members of the committee if they choose to explain just  why such an absurd.offer is not entitled  to any serious consideration from the  council whatever. This should be an  easy matter in view of the margin between the receipts from lighting service and the cost of maintenance.

Upon this basis the rate levied last year  was . 11 1-2 mills on lands and 2 3-4  -mills=on=improvernentSf=arid==it=is=nofc  likely that this rate will be exceeded  this year by more than two mills. That  this is a very low rate may be gathered  from the fact that the rate struck in  Winnipeg this year is 24 mills upon an  assessment representing the high water  line of values.  OF MORE OR LESS INTEREST  The Boys are Homesick.  KRUGERSDORP, Transvaal, May 18.  ���To the Editor of The Tribune: From  the place this letter is dated you will  see that we have reached our destination, and many of the boys from Nelson wish they had remained at home.  The main.causes of the discontent are;  grub and'discipline. Living,-in British  Columbia .as you please ancLgeeting all  you can eat is far different from doing  as you are ordered and living on a  pound of bread and four ounces of meat  a day. George Partridge is sick in the  hospital. I. am getting along well, and  the only fault l.have to find is -with.the  temperature at ��� night. It is quite cold.  I have been promoted to staff sergeant  of my troop. Can you not send us The  Tribune, as the sight of it would do the  boys as much good as an extra ration.  C. J. HISLOP.  Lower the Steamboat Bates.  AINSWORTH, June 27.���To the Editor of The Tribune: Why is it that working people send east for goods? The reason is that the rates on the steamboats  are so high that we can save money  by sending east for goods instead of  going to Nelson once a month. The  steamboats are to blame. If the old rates  were restored,-people would go to Nelson to do their shopping; as it is, many  of us are unable to get to Nelson once a  year.      ���    MRS.  WILLIAM  DUNNE.  Not Known if Body Has Been Found.  WHITE HORSE, June '21.��� To the  Editor of Tbe Tribune.: Enclosed find  an account of the drowning of Jack  Lowes.
