C, THURSDAY, JULY 11, 1901  FIVE CENTS  NELSON'S LOW TAX RATE  SHOULD   ENCOURAGE   BUILDING  OPERATIONS.      s  Improvements in This City Are Practically Exempt and Realty Rate   -  Little Above One Per Cent.  1 1  \  K  )  The meeting of the court of revision  ���which was held yesterday morning was  _ probably the most remarkable of any  court of revision ever held in the provinco in view of the few appeals entered  and the very insignificant reductions  made in the roll as returned by the assessor. In rll tho reduction'* made totaled just $1400. Of this sum the rebates made from the assessment of lands  amounted to $1310, and the remaining  ~ $150 represented the amount of the  deductions made from the pssessmont of  improvement**-.   All the membcis of the  - court were present, it being composed  of mayor Fletcher and aldermen Paterson, Hamilton, Irving and Gillett.  The first appeal taken up was that  of 1 Tarry Sheran of New Denver,  who  - " appealed .from the assessment of his  50 foot lot on Vevnon' street, adjoining  Turner, Beeton & Company's premises,  which was returned at $3Q00. Tlie assessment* was confirmed.  A. "LaPointCc appealed from his as-  rossment of ��1200 on p. 25 foot lot on  1hc corner of Vernon and. Josephine  streets.   The assessment was "con firmed.  John Elliot annealed from the asses&-  ���ment of lots 13, 1-1 and 15 in block 5S.  The propei ty is located on Park street  * and some shacks on it were assessed  at-S'TSO. This assessment was reduced  to $r>00 and the ���*sscs-*n*ent on the land  ' was allowed to "remain at the-original  figure.    The   seneral   notice, of  appeal  - on. the part of the -tramway  company  r and of "F. C.

'������"'. adjourned until Monday evening at 7:4a  -   o'clock.   "'' ������ ���  Without takiuginto consideration the  "very trifling reductions made by the  court of revision yesterday the assess-  ��� ment of the city for the present year  stands at $2,330,970. 01,' this amount  $1,321,595 represents the assessment oi  the east ward, comprising Jands returned at, $703,2G0, and improvements,  returned   at  ?61S.335.    The   west   ward  ' assessment was: Lands $547,100. and improvements $402,275, making a total for  the  ward  of  $1,009,375.  It is interesting to noto the manner  in which the value of property in Nelson has crept up without any new territory having, been taken into the municipality since incorporation. The first  assessment of the city was made ��� m  ISflS, when the total assesment was returned at $981,442, made up of UwU  assessed at $306,870, and improvements  assessed at $174,572. ��� During the next  year the assessment jumped to $1,��j92,-  055, which was made up of lands returned at $1,166,025, and of improvement** ���  returned at $428,030. Another bie gain  was made in the-next year, when olos-*  _ upon 340,000 was added to the total  assessed value of the city, the figures  being $2,065,400. Of this total the lands  represented a value of $1,247,250, and the  imnrovements $818,150.  For the purposes of taxation, however.  the imnrovements in Nelson .are.practically- eliminated. These by statues-  arc exempt to the. extent of 50 per cant  of their assessed^ value and the policy of  the several city councils that have been  in charge of the municipality's affair-*  has been' to keep .improvements alto- ,  gether exempt from taxation. The only  exception made to this rule was in the  framing of the by-law for the firs!; mone "  by-law when tho charges for interest  and sinking funds were spread over  the improvements as well as the real  property. This accounts for the tax cf  " 2 3-4 mills, which at present- is levied  against improvements, or rather upon  50 per cent of their assessed valua.  which is the sole impost upon improvements Jr. the city.  Another very pleasing feature for Nel-  sonites to contemplate is that they have  probably the lowest tax rate of any city  in Canada, a very small proportion of  the municipal revenue being raised by  taxes upou the land, the city being in.'  the very advantageous position of owning its public utilities, which are made  to shoulder tho greater portion of the  cost of the municipal government. That  Nolson has a remarkably low tax rate  will be appreciated when it is stated  that last year the levy upon lands was  only 11 1-2 mills, and the levy upon  improvements but 2 3-4 mills upon 50  per cent of their assessed value. The  total return to the municipal treasury  from this levy was $15,050, so that it.will  he seen at a glance that tlie city has  revenues from its public utilities that  go a long way in keeping the tax rate  upon lands down, and such*debt as the  city has-was to a very great "extent inclined in installing and extending these  same utilities.  The wisdom of the policy of keening  tlie taxes down lias been very well explained in the manner in which Nelson  has been built up with good substantial  buildings, there being every encouragement to  the  improvement of property  in Nelson's tax rates. *A comparison of  the manner  in which rates in  Nelson  compare with those in the city of .Winnipeg  will   not  come  amis.**.    The   K  W.  C.   block  in  Nelson  is  assessed  at.  $51,000,   of  which   the  land  represents  $11,000.    Under'the rate last ^ year the  tax upon tlie real estate amounted to  $1')6..*;0, and the tax upon the improvements  to  but '$55,  making a  total  of  $181.50;,and.if to this is added the retail   traders'   tax   of  the   dozen  people  occupying the block  the total revenue  resulting to  the city will  be found  to  reach $241.50.    If, however, the Winnipeg tax rates were applied to this same  building a very different result would  be disclosed.   The present rate in Winnipeg is 24 mills upon real estate and  improvements and upon an assessment  which has been forced up to the highest  limit.   This rate-applied to the Nelson  assessment of the K. W. C. block would  'mean taxes amounting to $1224, but th.*  tax does not end there, because in Winnipeg instead of the retail traders' tax  they  have  a  traders'   tax   based  upon  1 1-2.of the rental value of the premises occupied.   Taking the rental valiu1  at but 10-per cent of the/,value of'the  property such a tax in the case of the  . K. W. C block would mean an additiona I  tax   of  $425,   to  which   might  also   be  added   the   various   local   improvement  taxes  which  alpo obtain  in  Winn'peg ���  But leaving these out of consideration  thero is  the  Nelson  tax  of  $211.50  as  against the Winnipeg tax of $1649 upon,  the same property.   No doubt the knowl  cd?c th?t the ta-:es in Nel?on amount  to so little in any event accounts"in no  small mc**<-ure for fhe dearth of appeal?  Iron*   the   valuations   of   the   assessor.  Nelson  is the. one town'in Canada .ii.  which a, mrn.can hold .a little property  and not be iii constant fear that he will  be taxed to death. *      "'  AINSWORTH'S BIG PROPERTY  FORCE OF MINERS INCREASED ON  THE HIGHLAND.

'��� MpNTREAL, July 10.���The city council today decided to call for new tenders for'lighting contract, to be opened  in September. A decision was only  reached alter an exciting debate, during whicli alderman Clearihue said he  had been offered S3000 to vote for giving the-contract to the Royal Electric  Company, the present holder. The Roya!  Electric bid $95 per light per year. The  lowest binder was the St. Ijawrenc-  Company, at $54.75. Today a motion war.  made to offer the contract to the Roya!  company at $60. An amendment made  to give the contract to the St. Lawrence  company was voted down by 18 to 15  It was then decided to call for new tenders. There was. much excitement, thr.  mayor havir:**- diliiculty in maintaining order. Tho St. Lawrence company  has such well known men behind it a<  Van Home, senator Drummond and sir  William O. MacDonald. ���   ,  The owners of the Highlander mine  have increased their force of men in  the long tunnel, and the manner in  which the property is developing is.exceeding the predictions of the most sanguine in the camp, although it is generally understood that the owners know  just what to expect from their explora  tions with the diamond drill last cummer. Drifting upon the mammoth ledge  is now being pushed ahead steadily and  when this is completed according to the  present programme outlined the owners of the Highlander will have easily  the biggest mine in British Columbia.  The success met with in the development, of the Highlander will also lead  to the resumption of work upon a number of other properties in the camp  wliich was sadly in need of a revival,  having experienced one reverse after  another until many were inclined to  give up.  Bruce White will leave"*for San*1*'*.!  today. The -Slocan Star is at presei.t  employing a force of, 120 men and Mr.  White gave an unqualified denial to the  reports being persistently circulated  that the company contemplated shutting down. The entire output of Uje  Slocan Star goes to the smelter at San-  Francisco, and there is no restriction"  upon the amount of the property's output. The ore is "sold to the San Francisco smelter upon the London c-uota--  tion for lead, and at no time has che  Star experienced any difficulty In marketing its product. As to the prese-it  outlook in the Slocan Mr. White said  that he" fully expected to see a number  .of the Slocan producers resume vvork  'within the next couple of months. Within" this period the 1600 foot tunnel on  the Last Chance property' should ha/*:  reached the ledge, and the general opin-  , ion was that when this was accomplished the'Last Chance would.resume work  upon an extensive scale.

A }con-_  "centratof for the 'Payne was also' being  considered.  Crop Conditions.  WASHINGTON.

P. R. to the'effect that he had  been waited upon by a deputation from  Winnipeg representing all the other  railway 'organizations on the road with  a view to settling the trackmen's strike.  "There is. no truth whatever in the  statement," he said. "The. report is evidently concocted to stop the return of  strikers to work that is daily taking  place, and it is not the only report that  is being circulated . for-that purpose.  Thatone in tliis evening's 'papers, stating that 1.7 gangs on the Owen Souni  section had been induced to again go  out, is equally false. The reports I  have of returning workmen," he continued,- "are most encouraging. It is  an old story, perhaps, but I can only  repeat it."

Shortly before the noon hour the Chinaman attacked Mrs. Kenney, wife of  the foreman of the mill, with a butcher  knife, inflicting a serious 'wound on her  face. He also struck Mrs. Kenney's little daughter, but the injury is slight.  The screams of the woman brought  the lumbermen to the scene. Mr. Kenney was the first to reach the house.  He was attacked by the Chinaman and  sustained a severe cut on the wrist. The  lumbermen knocked the Chinaman  down, placed a rope around his neck,  and hanged him to a tree.

A message from the Associated Press  correspondent at Marshall, Missouri,  says: The trains collided head on while  going at a good rate of speed. The engines were practically demolished and  the forward cars'of the passenger train  telescoped. Nine persons are reported  killed outright, two others are said  to have been burned to death, while  four are believed to be under the wreckage. Twenty-five others are reported  injured.- The cars are believed to have  been set afire by tlie wreckage of the  locomotives.

KANSAS CITY, Mo., July 10��� Southbound passenger train No. 7 on the Chicago & Alton railroad from* Chicago  crashed head on into the second section  of freight train No. 88 two miles west of  Norton, Missouri, today. Both engineers'and the conductor of the freight  train were instantly killed. Three passengers were killed and 25 injured. -The  coaches took fire and are now burning.  Special trains from Slater and Kansas  City," carrying physicians, have been  sent to the scene. The killed and injured will probaly be taken to Marshall, the* nearest station south of Norton. The names of the dead and injured are not reported.  ��� In the message received at the local  offices general agent McLain of.the passenger department states the entire  train was destroyed by fire soon' after  the wreck occurred. McLain reported  that he was unhurt, but gave no particulars.  CHICAGO, July 10.���The Kansas City  report that both engineers and three  passengers were killed and about 25  others injured in the Chicago & Alton  wreck near Norton, Missouri, has been  confirmed by the general superintendent's office in Chicago.  KANSAS CITY, July 10��� The passenger train was due at Marshall at  6:54, but was 55 minutes late. The  freight left .Marshall at 7:24 in an attempt to make Norton and met the  passenger five miles east of here. When  the crash came the smoker and diner  telescoped, turned to one side and went  by the baggage express .car and the engine and down an embankment. Few  =in=this=car=were=injured.==In^the^chair=  car half a dozen received scratches and  bruises, but the greatest number of victims were in the tourist car. This car  telescoped and. fell on top of the engine. The passengers were scalded by  steam. The chair car piled up near by.  The Pullman and the observation car-  remained on the track. The occupants  diiickly went to work to aid the injured in the forward cars. The tourist  sleeper and the chair oar caught fire  and were completely burned. Wreck-  ago was piled high, and it is feared several bodies are still underneath.. The  baggage car was completely wrecked  and freight cars were piled upon both  engines and  caught fire.  KANSAS CITY, July 10.���10 p. m.���  Thirteen persons are dead, two probably fatally injured and a large number  of'less'seriously hurt as tho result-of  the head on collision between a passenger and fast livestock train on the Chicago & Alton railroad near Norton,  Missouri, at 7 o'clock this morning. Six  were killed outright, four died on a  train conveving them to Kansas City  and three died at a hospital in this city.  The dead are: Daniel McAnna, Slater,  Mo., conductor of the freight train; J.  P. Anderson, Slater, Mo., engineer of  freight train; Frank Brydges, engineer  of the passenger train; C. S. Rogers,  Chicago, United States express messenger; Mrs. Gilland and daughter of Good-  land, Ind. These six were killed outright. D. W. Cooker of Syracuse, N.  Y., G. V. Snyder of Jasper? N. Y., and  G. L. Roy, cashier, of Wilmington, 111.,  died on the train. Sydney Jones of  Kansas City died in the hospital.  The passenger train was traveling in  three sections on accouut of the heavy  Epworth League business to San Francisco. The wrecked train was the first  section and contained no Leaguers. Conductor McAnna of the freight train,  easthound, had been ordered to meet  the second section of the passenger train  at Slater, the next station east of Norton, but apparently overlooked the fact  that the first section, which was 55  minutes late, had not passed. The head  brakeman on the freight, who was about  four cars from the engine, says conductor McAnna assumed the throttle himself on leaving Marshall and was running the encine when the collision occurred.

Cloudburst in Montana.-  HELENA, M-..nt.,- July 10.���A cloud-'  burst is reported to have almost destroyed the town of Corbin, twenty miles  south of Helena. No loss of life has as  yet oe*'n ropoited, but it is thought certain that escape for all the inhabitants  was impossible. Corbin is situate near a  line of hills of the Rockies. During the  night a terrific storm prevailed. Water  rushed down the hills in dense volumes.  Houses were torn from their foundations and reduced to debris. /The water  rose to S feet in the principal streets  arid only the most substantial buildings remained in position. Residents of  this city familiar with the I surround-,  ings at Corbin are of the opinion that a  loss of life must have accompanied tbe  flood..          ��� ������   ���  Train Robbers Still at Large.

The report "that the robbers were surrounded near Rocky Point and that a  fight.was in progress is without foundation."

CINCINNATI, July 10.--Today being  the last day of the international Christian Endeavor convention, events have  been crowded in upon each other, making it really the busiest day of the session, which lasted five days. There  was not an hour from suntise until the  time for the farewell meeting tonight  that was not marked for meetings and  services. The usual quiet hour meetings ushered in the day's program.

The twentieth national convention of  the United States Socioty of Christian  Endeavor was brought to a close here  tonight. The convention from beginning to end was a brilliant success. The  quiet hour meetings of the Rev. Floyd  Tompkins of Philadelphia and Cornelius WoolfKin of Brooklyn again ushered  in the day's work. The auditorium"*  were then used for ^thc two bi��r rallies  In the morning, which were devoted to  a discussion of the 20th anniversary  session of the society. Bishop ,B. W.  Arnott of Wilberforce, Ohio, presided  at the meeting in the Williston audi  torium. The afternoon' rallies were  given over to the missionaries for a  discussion of their needs.

Scores Another Inning.''    . - 7  ROTHESAY, Firth of Clyde, JuFyolO-'J"  Another open water trial of the!' Sham- ,  rocks   was   started   about* 11   o'clock '. ���  this morning off Boganny Point, island     ���  of Bute. The challenger allowed the old-^* -,  er boat to get "well away to-windward'  and   several  lengths  ahead,  thus  permitting her to get the flrst of the fresher off-shore wind. The Shamrock I maintained aH her advantage to Kilcattan, 7  but the challenger then picked up rapid-   *  ly and  passed .the  ex-challenger clear' ,  to leeward after a clever bit of sailing.  In Kilcattan* bay.'the' two��� Shamrocks ��  had" a-'co'uple of wind ward J<trials-at eight -  an~d"seve'n-.-ihiles�� respectively. The-;cup ���,/  challenger "finished the "first race- hai t_a.'_ "  mile in the lead. In the second race sheT.  started to leeward,  but worked out to    ^  windward and won by a mile. The "wind.  later freshened to quite ten knots and'  the water was white-capped. The chal-  lnger, however, continued to sail in good  form.   She  easily  outfooted  the  Shamrock I in beating to windward and .was  also faster in going free.  But on that  point of sailing the difference was less  perceptible. Calculated on a set match  today round a thirty mile course the .,  challenger would have beaten the older '  boat  by  about five  minutes.  The concluding feature of today's trial swas a  reach   home   in   a   breeze   which   submerged the yachts' lee rails. The challenger's  form seemed to improve with  the fres_hen|ng_wind. She did 7 lr2 mi les .  ^i  in 34 minutes.  Baseball Magnates  Confer.  ROCHESTER, N. Y., July 10.���President Powers of the Eastern league was  in town today. When seen by a representative of. the Associated Press he  said his visit to Rochester had no bearing on the local base ball situation, but  that he is. here to consult with president Higgins and magnate Callahan as  to the advisability of instituting a suit  for damages against the street railway  company of Syracuse because of several  Syracuse players being injured in a  wreck on the company's lines some tone  ago. Regarding the rumor that the Syracuse team may bo transferred to Newark Mr. Powers said that he had nothing to say, except that that was a question for the local owners to settle. In  regard to the suspension of Kuhns of  the Hartford club whao threw a bat at  umpire Warner at Culver fleld several  days ago, Mr. Powers said he allowed  the three days' suspension to stand, but  that the matter is not yet settled. Umpire Lanigan was dismissed, Mr. Powers  says, because he was not the man  wanted. President Powers says the prospects of the Eastern league are brilliant.  A Monster Meeting.  LONDON, July 10.���There was a meeting held at the Guild Hall this afternoon  in suport of the government's war  policy. It was a great success from the  "jingo" point of view. The idea originated on the stock exchange and was intended as an offset to the receui pio-  Boer gatherings at Queen's Hall. The  lord mayor, Frank Grs-en, and other  city magnates did their utmost to assure  its success, and the result was the great  hall of the Guild Hall, having a capacity  of four thousand people, did not suffice  to contain the crowd, which necessitated an overflow meeting outside, where  tlie pro-war enthusiasts made a-demonstration of a more pronounced character  than that of the stock brokers within.  Patriotic songs broke out at intends  both within and without the building.  A resolution expressing complete confidence in tho South African policy of  the government and ; rotesfing against  the unpatriotic attacks of the press was  adopted in the midst of wild scenes o��  enthusiasm. ������''-".  1 ���-���I.".' fr-i-���&��+A^sa3*i0**f**.-.+��*vrf~r>ii1.:.'*~'. -  --S��-.-*M/iS-a!p-fl'^^  ��� ntru0t*HiK'*0'  THE TEIBttfrE: KELSON, B.

The experience of the British  forces  in.South Africa demonstrated the value  of  tlie sharpshooter,  and   charging an  intrenched position' seems now to be a  thing of the past.    Had  the Spaniards  been   as*well  armed  and  of the same  fighting*   material    as   the    Boers,   tlie  American'- victory   at   San  Juan   world  probably- have- been a disastrous defeat  .almost identical with that of the British  at   Colenso.    Hence   the   necessity   of  drilling the national guard according to  prevailing conditions.   -The old method;  of marching a company- in front of a  target, and-firing a volley while standing,.-has been eliminated, and skirmish  firing by company has replaced it.   According to the  new  orders - each '��� company advances'to the 500-yard line, and.  each man fires two rounds; then at lhe  word'of command the in en advance on  the run to''400 yards, and again'firing  two  rounds, they rush  forward  to .",00  yards, .where,/after   using   two.  more  rounds, the order is given to.retreat, the  line-being halted at 350 yards, and again  at 450'yards, a volley being fired at each  point:   The firing is always done prone,,  so   that   in   actual   warfare   each   man  would be able to.ake advantage of any  inequality the ground might offer.

Plans were also being  laid for the construction of a long distance trunk line between the two cities.  The construction of a. system in New  York and Boston will cost about $9,000,-  000.  NEW YORK, July 10.���A dispatch  from Washington to'the Herald says:  Efforts by the.

Mr. Sullivan, the agent of the Warner-.  Quinlan syndicate, asked the court in  Carupino to issue the oi-der, but the  court declined to grant tlie application.  This report from Mr. Russell disposes  of 'rumors that Venezuela had author  ized  the  Warner-Quinlan  syndicate  to  take possession of the asphalt property.  CHICAGO, July 10.���A special to the  Record-Herald  from   Helena.   Montana,  says:    Further particulars of the accident   to   Mrs.    John   L.    Zeibriskie   of  Brooklyn,- N.

While  the capital, charge will be abandoned,  the public prosecutor will press the  charge of obtaining the legacy by means  of fraud. At the time ofVogle's arrest  it was asserted that he was all accomplished ventriloGiiist. and 'that, while  supporting the dying Taubin in his arms  he uttered the testamentary words himself, deceiving the witnesses into tho belief that Taubin was speaking.

But working for the government is  much like other employment; tlie good  positions are difficult to cret." Indeed,  there are between 45,000 and 50,000 applicants for civil service' examination  on the average every year to 30,000 who  actually pass; and out-of this list only  between 7000 and S000 receive appointments. In other words, there are nearly seven applicants, to every position  and about four or five eligible ones to_  every ofiice open for appointment. This  demand for the positions shows that  the government is not an unpopular  employment agency, and that there are'  plenty whoi are willing to serve Uncle  Sam in wliatever capacity he assigns  them. ' ."  Not only men, but women, and even'  boys, are appointed to positions under  the government. Formerly there was  a decided prejudice against women employes in the government's service,  but today there are upward of 2000 women in the Washington departments,  not including the army . and navy.  These are made up.chiefly of.clerks,  typewriters,, matrons, . telegraph operators, stenographers, translators, nurses,  teachers and bookbinders. The , average ratio of men and women employed  by the goyernment under the civil service rules is about one to six. A few  positions are open to boys as young  as H.  The salaries of employes begin at  $500 per year.   That.is the lowest pai(Lv  7but���the~salary��� usually- paid^toTbefin^  ners in Washington is about $900. From  this they run up into the thousands;  according to the responsibilities of-the  position and the duties demanded of-  the incumbent. All sorts and kinds of  trades and professions . are represented  by the government employes. There  are positions for. skilled and, unskilled  labor; for experts in every department^  of science and industry; and for the  highest educated men .and women that  the country can produce. The man  with the technical training can find  places tinder the government where his  highest skill and knowledge may-show'  to the best advantage, although the  highest commercial rates may not be  paid  for them.  While the government pays beginners  well, and has an average wage-scale  above that-of almost any private business concern, it does not compete with  private corporations in the highest  grades of Vork. Tho man of extraorr'  dinary merit or accomplishments.would  not seek a government position for the  ."highest financial rewards. The highest  position under the government is not  more remunerative than that of many  private ones, and plenty of business,  men make two or three-times as much  as the president's salary. Yet withal  the government secures the very best  executive, business and professional talent. Men of the highest ability do not  hesitate to yield their best to the government, receiving in part payment  therefor the honor and glory attached  to the' work, and a fine consciousness'  of having served the country's cause.  The ordinary positions which require  little skilled labor to fill are always  the ones the most crowded and, in a  sense, the most difficult to secure. There  are scores clamoring- for each such position. As we go up the grade the demand is less because the list of eligi-  bles is smaller. By the time we reach  the technical positions, where special  talent or education of a rare,order is  required, the government frequently has  to seek the man instead of the latter the  government position. Men of the scientific, training and specialty, are needed  in ,the different departments and to .fill  the positions thus created with the right  sort of men it is necessary to hunt up  the men in all parts of the country.���  George E. Walsh in Leslie's Weekly,  As. Good as Sherlock Holmes.  A short time ago a  visitor  from  a  western state entered the .office of John  E.  Wilkie,  chief  of the secret  service  division of the United States treasury  department,  bearing a  letter of introduction from a common friend, relates  ,the Philadelphia Saturday Evening Port.  , He was accompanied by his daughter,  a remarkably prettly girl. -The girl had  a bad bruise on her cheek near the corner of the right eye, and  the visitor  said smilingly, as they were leaving: "I  didn't strike my daughter; she-'goi that-  bruise   in   another    way."-   The    chief  leaned  back  in his  chair,  holding  his  brier   pipe   in   his    hand,-- and    looked  thoughtful for a moment.    "I think I  can tell you how it happened," ha said  "On the morning of the day before yesterday-she was sitting on the side of  her berth in the sleeper from Indianap ���  olis.    She leaned ove*.* to lace her shoe,  the car lurched, and she fell across the  aisle,   striking   her   head   on   the   arm  -of the opposite seat."    The visitJr -aus"  astounded.    ".Were you on the train'*"  he asked.   "No;" replied the-chief, '"-jut  I  reason   in   this  way:*    Personal   violence in the case of this young la.iy'is  out of-the question.    Painful accidents,  sometimes   occur   from   colliding   wit'i.  the edge of an open door in the dark,'  but in that case the bruise would -nose  likely   have   been   on   some   prominent1  feature, like the temple, the '���heekbonc,-  or the nose, and not in the slight depression near the eye.    You have been  on  the sleeper  for  two  days,   for you  told -me so early in your conversation,  here.    The bruise is not a- ve..*v fresh'  one, so it seemed almost certain that the  accident  occurred .from  a  fall   on   tbe  train, 'as much as, and not more than,  48 hours ago.   My reasoning.is quite sim-1  pic, you see."    Both visitors expressed  their amazement and took their leave.'  The father then went to "the office of-  one of the higher officials of the treasury  department and- in  a s'traightfor-'  ward way explained that lie had called  to* express his appreciation of the' chi^f-  of the secret service.   "I have just-conic,  from his office." he said, " and in my-  short  interview   1   am   convinced .that'  he is the best man who ever occupied  the  place."    The -official   spoke- about";  ..the matter to Mr. Wilkie the next (lay,''  and the chief told of the visit and   **'-  the supposed  detective  incident.    "But,  it wasn't a clever.thing at all," said.he,  "and I must write a letter to that man.'  I   didn't  think  it  was  going to  make'  such a fuss.   Some friends of my family  came from Indiana two or three days  ago, and I heard them up at the house  talking   about   a   pretty    girl   on    the  sleeper    from    Indianapolis    who * fell  across the aisle from  her berth' while  dressing and  bruised her face. " When  that man brought his daughter into the  office  and   told   me   where, they   came  from it just popped into my head that  here was the girl my-friends had been  talking about:" ;  D.

Nothing has been heard from the  Coast with respect to the judgment of  the full court upon the application made  for a new trial in the case of the C. P.  R. vs. Fawcett an action for damages  instituted against the C. P. R. by the  parents of the late conductor Fawcett.  At the trial of the 'action in Nelson  the court did not let the case go to the  jury, and in consequence the application for a new trial was made.  "John R. Cook, capitalist," is the  president of the Vancouver Oil Company of Spokane, a company that is  drilling for oil in the oilfields recently  discovered in Spokane and Whitman  counties, Washington. Eleven years "ago  John R. was drilling.for high grade ore  on the Water Jacket mineral claim on  Morning Mountain, southwest of Nel-  pon. He afterwards discovered what  ho was drilling for at Rossland, and  became .**- critalist. John P.. Cook is  one of the lucky ones.  Nothing hf1-*; as yet been heard by  the" local railway' contractors with respect to the letting of the work on the  British Columbia .Southern brancii,  which is to connect the East Kootenay  coal fields with the markets of the  south. Men who have been over me  proposed road say it will make good  work for the contractors if they can  get anything like fair pi ices for.it, all  that portion of the work along the Kootenay river being of a remarkably  heavy nature. That portion of the road  from the mouth of the Elk river to  Elko is not so heavy. Tt is not known  yet whether that portion of the road  from Elko to Fernie will be built, paralleling the Crow's Nest or whether the  company"'will avail itself of its privilege of securing running rights over  the.Crow's Nest, thus shutting off tlie  necessity of building an additional 20  miles.  -���-The���now���bowling-green���in-the-rearr  of the court house was formally opened  yesterday afternoon, when a curling  ring composed of J. H. Wallace, J. F.  Weir, C. E. Miller and Frank Tamblyn  undertook to play a rink of government officials made jp "bf judge Forin,  J. A. Turner, E. T. H. Simpkins nnd  Harry Wright. The game resulted in  an easy victory for the government team  with, a score of 22 to 8. Among the  other men on the green who were Irving to get -their hand in at bowling  were J. C. McLennan, J. H. Nolan, H. F.  'MeLeod, P. K. Wilson, Charles' Wilson  and Dr. Arthur. The ground is not  yet in very good shape for bowling, but  it is .probably as well that it is not, as  if affords the poor bowlers a food excuse for failures to score. When the  green is fixed up bowling "should be a  popular summer pastime, as it is most  conveniently situated.  Mrs. Emma Gaskell of the Humo addition ��� will ai-year in the provincial  police court tlrs afternoon upon a  charge of a breach of the provisions of  the Poison Act. The case is the outcome of a neighbor's quarred over chickens whicli were allowed to run at large.  Mrs. Arthur Booth has the chickens, or  rather she had before the poison got in  its work, and Mrs. Gaskell has a garden.  Mrs, Booth was cautioned against allowing the chicken's to run at large,  but the caution was disregarded, and  soon after the chickens began to lie  off. A quantity of poisoned chicken  food was found in the vicinity of the  Booth premises, and the attempt will  be made to show that Mrs. Gaskell  placed it there. The char-re which the  police have laid against Mrs. Gaskell  is that she did unlawfully place poison  outside of her building without giving  notice to all persons and families residing within one mile of the place  where such poison was placed by posting notices on three of the most important places within one mile of the  place where such poison was put out,  contrary to the provisions of the Poison  Act. The complaint in the case was  made by Mr-?.  Arthur Booth.  to take up her residence In the Kootenay Lake country, her residence dating from April, 1884, and that of Mn  Rykert from the year previous. Mr,  Rykert is collector of customs at the  sub-port of Rykerts, and in the early  days was the ranking collector in all  this section of country. He was also  mining recorder of Goat River mining  division, and he tells some amusing  stories of his official experiences. Mr.  and Mrs. Rykert are accompanied by  Mrs. Cromley of Niagara Falls, New  York, and Mrs. Dempsie of Spokane.  Both these ladies are somewhat surprised to see Nelson so trim a town,,  some of the streets and gardens and  lawns comparing favorably with those  in Niagara and Spokane.

PAUL, July 10.���After a night aiid  a day spent in considering a verdit t.  the jury in the case of Herbert W. Pearson of Duluth against the Great Northern railroad reported its inability io  agree and was discharged. Mr. Pearson sued to recover"- 11,000,000, whiyh  he alleges to be due from the railroad  company under a contract whicli he  claimed to have been made with it  for the location of vast beds of coal in  the states of Washington and Montana. Mr. Pearson claimed ��� to "have  evolved a theory as to the existeno2  of prehistoric sea beaches, by the location of which he was able to determine  where deposits of coal-"existed. His  theory is one that'has created-a-great  deal of discussion among scientists,-  many eminent men ridiculing it, while  others just" as eminent are .ardent in  its support. The case has been sharply  contested and has occupied over threo  weeks in its_hearing. Judge Kelly in hi3  charge to the juryTuled that,the "question as to the Washington' coal field-i  was not to-be considered and that liu'  point to be" decided was-whether "or uoz  the plainuif had located for the defendant company.- the. immense deposits 'al  and near Stockett,- in Cascade county,  Montana. The company r.laimed to havo  had knowledge of the Stockett deposits  prior to 1896, the year "in which Mr.  Pearson's explorations were made. Mi.  Pearson's attorneys state, that they wil!  again bring the case to trial as speed!'r  as possible. -   ���  Why Boers Keep on Piguting.  NEW YORK, July 10.���British military men, ��� says the Tribune's" London  correspondent, have been shaking their  heads ominously over the disclosures  made by a special correspondent of the  Daily Mail respecting the conduct of  the Boer war and the arbitrary suppression of facts by the press censors. They  find- evidence of what they have been  expecting for a long time, namely, that  lord Kitchener is not allowed to be as  thoroug'.i and as ruthless as they tli inl:  he ought to be, and that the government  _insists_upon_interfering_with���him-for-  political reasons. The radicals on the  other hand, assert that sir Henry Camp-  bell-Bannerman's indictment of the government for conducting a barbarous  waifare is fully. sustained and that Boo-i-  atrocities aro the natural sequel*; to lord  Kitchener's drastic measures.-There will  be a heavy crossfire of questions in the  house of commons in cor.sequeiK*e of  all these painful revelations, but Mr.  Broderick has a safe refuge in silence.  A parliamentary nbie J*��ssue*l last night  ���.'���"���latin*-* to the peace negotiations demonstrates that tha Boer forces aie in a  very perilous state and that the burghers are only.kept in tne field by unblushing perversions of lord Kitchener's  terms and extravagant tables of Boei'  sun-esses. The- most notable instance  of the latter is" Dewet'-* statement that  Cape Colony has -������i'-on to a man against  'he British, and that in proceeding to  invade the colony he killed general  Knox. Othor statements are that the  czar had received a Boer delegation, introduced bj Dr. 1 oyds, and that France  was ready to land troops in England on  November 1st. The assurance given by  Mr. Kruger that he had made arrangements in Europe by which the safety  and comfort of tl*2 women and children  ir. the refuge camps wo.ild be assured  had considerable influence with the Boer  leaders in deciding to continue the fight.

NEW YORK, July 10.���There was a  close approach to a skirmish, says i'..p  Tribune's London correspondent, at th?  latest meeting of the commission to  whicli the British foreign office has referred the European and American  claims respecting the war in South Africa. The representative of the Dutch  government and the chairman of tn<-  committee corrected ind disciplined  each other for a half hour, until S'r  John Ardagh took up a large class of  railroad claims and sought to rule th-*n  out on the ground that the claimants-  were not neutral, but virtually belligerent-:.
