NELSON, B. C, TUESDAY, JULY-i), 1901  FIVE CENTS  Ten Stamps Are Dropping on  Quartz  Which Samples at $20 in Gold  Values to the Ton.   '���  Thomas James,'manager for the Onondaga Mines of Syracuse, New York,  'was in Nelson yesterday for the purpose  of making arrahgohieiits for the building  of a short waj-oil road and ferry over  tlie Kootenay rivei", which will enable  him to make'vhis'headquarters-in Nelson instead/of RbSslailil."-''The Onondaga  _. Mines are Jth'e- owners" of six mineral  claims on the "divide between the Kootenay and Columbia rivers, beingvs.it-  uate about an .equal distance from Waterloo on ihe Columbia,, and Robson  on the Kootenay. The claims are  known as the Maud S.. .Yellow Jacket.  Touch-Mo-Not; .Standard;.JEric"'and Syracuse. Although . very little ���' has a-p-  !*<*������*.rod in the : public'��� press concerning  the operations of the Syracuse* company  it lias expended over $100,000 in the  acquisition and development of its property, and of this sum fully 535,000 has-  been .put into" actual development and  in making the properly accessible. Thr  work done has demonstrated that the  company has a fieo gold property which  promises very largo.returns. _ The ledge  appears to vary greatly in wid'tli; but'  an estimate of its width at from two  to three foot js said to be-very conservative. Uppn it a depth of 225 feet  has already been attained. The ore  gives an assay'value of $20. in gold and  experiments made in the milling of -it  in tha company's 30 stamp mill show  that at least $12.50 .can be recovered by  this process, thcKromaining values being in the concentrates which ..will be  shipped to one of/the. local smelters <  There aro now employed at the property  some 30 men, but during the. construction, of the proposed-road and terry a  considerable addition will be mado tc  this number. ,,,  The company's iiresent means of. outlet is over a trail to the,Columbia river,  whore,.?   ferry "is made and  connection  - established   with .the, C.t.P...,R.  branch  to  Rossland.    All"'the* (supplies 'hereto--,  lore taken into the property have-gone  , in by this route, upon which the company has had to pay'a verylstiif transportation rate. The company has now  jbtarled milling operations, and "as 20  tons per day are put .tli rough the present mill the- concentrates, will*-accumulate very fast a'nd "some cheaper' means,,  of moving them becomes necessary.  From the property to the Kootenay  river near Robson three miles of very,,  li**ht wa**.on road will give--the improved facilities necessary, the csti-  . mated cost, of which, varies' fromv$3000  to $3500, and across thc'Kootenay a cable ferry can be installed at a cost of  something like $fi00. Iii view- of the  already heavy expenditures made by  this company upon' roads and'trails, the  provincial government has virtually decided to help out to the extent-of half  the cost of the wagon road, the. company undertaking to install the ferry  upon its own account. At the ferry the  C.' P. R. Company will be;-.asked to pui  in a short spur for the- convenience ol  the company in moving-supplies in and  :in shipping concentrates out; and itf*  construction is regarded as a matter of  course.  When this road: is'-'built Mr. .Tame*?  will remove his family to. ..Nelson, and  the business resulting from the development of this new section .'will be'"very  ��� -,largely   conserved   to   Nelson,   since . i."  will offer the easiest means of access.  THE VENUS DEAL.  The option which the Athabasca people have upon the Venus group calls foi  a substantial payment7 on Thursday.  This deal was'negotiated sonic time ago  by A. B. Raiid, and although tho terms  of it have, not been made public, it is-  said that .the consideration to be paid  for the property ranges from $1.50,000  to $175,000.' The property.is at present  held by .the' Venus Mining Company,  which was organized two years'ago by  Dr. Doolittle. This company secured  the group, for a cash payment of $7500.,  and the ���.surrender of 250,000 shares oi"  stock in.'.'the' total of one million, for  which the .'company was capitalized.: Of.  the entire authorized stock-of the company it is said that 700,000 shares have,  been issued, 250,000 going .to, the incorporators" of the- company and 200,000 of  the remainder, which went into, tlie  treasury. for development,. having been'  .disposed of to raise funds for that p'ur-  ���p-j-ge...'''The' acceptance of the deal, by  -the Athabasca people would- give the  ' Venus 'shareholders a very nice. turnover cm their investment, as-after tlie;  ���indebtedness of the company is.wipeil-  out they should receive close .upon" the  highest market price re'ached by the  Venus stock since its issue. Aside from  -.the stock held by the original ..vendors  (of. the group the bulk "of the- stock sold  *w-as takenMip by,people in Eastern'-Can-.  ad a-.

Interest in the reported gold find in  -the vicinity of Creston is abating. Sev  eral locations have been made by the  men who rushed'into the section after  the Indian.came out with his remarka-  jMy; rjch .specimens of gold quartz, and  although they are said to have located  on good looking ledges they cannot get  returns^, from, their pre -equal to. those  secured from'the, Indian specimens. One  great' difficulty which has been encountered so far;'in..'.the prospecting of the  district is the great quantity rof wash  covering the ground. -Much- rich float  is found, "but is has-not yet been satisfactorily determined, whether or not it  has bblne fi-am the ledges>that'have been  ���staked or- ,fi*om others higher up the  hill. There Is, however,' every indication of -.the" presence-of some very rich j  quartz ledges .in the vicinity and in consequence-the district-is sure to receive  considerable attention this summer from  thevprospectors in its neighborhood.

NEW YORK, July 8.���Rumors respecting the retirement of lord Salisbury'have  ; died out,-' says the. Tribune's correspondent,' and'it. is generally assumed that  while'he is weary of public,-life he will  consent-to. remain prime minister until  the coronation. Mr. Balfour arid' Mr.-  Chamberlaii are'oii excellent terms and  sir Michael Hicks-Baach is hojding his  ground with a tenacity of purpose. No  immediate changes of leadership in the  commons are considared probable by  those watching closely the course of political events.  The most important business before  the meeting of thev city council ; last  evening "was the report of the  fire, water and light committee upon'  the offer-of the West Kootenay Power  & Light Company to purchase the city's  light plant. for' $50,000. The best evidence of the feeling.of the council was  the manner in W'hich the members.of  the council ��� received the report of the  committee and adopted it without comment of any kind whatever. This clause  of the committee's report simplyset but  that the offer made by the power company was one .which in the .opinion of  the committee could not be entertained  ' _  by.the council.'   The  other clause -of  the report' suggested that contracts.be  enteredinto for the erection of the city  electric   light   poles.'    The   report  was  considered clause by clause and adopted  without debate.  ���The .report of the finance committee  recommending the payment of the current accounts was received and adopted%  A communication 'was received from  Ewart Brothers & Ringrose offering to  sell the city the 400 lamps at present installed on Baker street, together' with  the fixtures for $305.- In this connection the mayor explained that he had  gone into the.question of the supplying  of the power for the opera'tion of the  lights with the officers of the tramway  company, but that so far he had been  ninable to secure any ;rate from the company- as to the probable cost of the  Rights. -In any event if it was decided  ,to have the lights,burning on Saturday  nights, as suggested/it would be necessary to make some';provision .for overcoming the - rising .'and falling of the  power going into them, its at present  there would probably be considerable  damage throurrh the burning out of the  lamps. He agreed that the illumina-  *tion of Baker street pn Saturday nights  .would,be a good advertisement and he  !w.as*'of-the opinion, that -sif necessary the  merchants tw(ould' be ^ound- willing to  beai--apportion, 'of the 'cost.*' "He -suggested that-.the matter'.be referred to a  committee .composed of aldermen Selous, Paterson and the mayor. This was  seconded by alderman Irving, but as an  amendment alder man Selous moved that  the matter be referred to n. committee  composed of the mayor and the chair-  manvof the fire,: water and light committee, alderman Irving."... Upon the vote  being taken the amendment was declared carried.  A communication was received from  the Salvation Army asking for the stone  in the front of the Phair hotel for use  'in the new barracks which: the army  contemplates, erecting on its property  on Victoria street. As the council will  vecv.ivG. the stone, for the new school  ���"building the city clerk was authorized  to notify the army officers that the  'council could not comply with their request.  'The request of the Nelson Trading &  -Transfer-Company-for-certain_improve~  ments to the street in front of their  new building on the corner of Vernon  and Stanley streets was referred to the  city engineer for report. The same disposition .;was mode of the petition of  the residents1 of Houston, street for improvements to that streetvbetween Josephine and Kootenay streets; In the-lat-  ter case the report of the'.engineer will  go tothe public work's committee.  The cemetery and frontage tax bylaws were down on the order paper for  further consideration, but on motion of  alderman Selous theywere given a six  weeks' hoist. '  *"  ' Mayor Fletcher then announced to the  council the sale of the city debentures,  notice of which appeared. im-The Tribune some days ago., The'mayor announced that the $100,000 worth of debentures had been sold for something  like $105'.025.85, which he explained was  about $1200 better than the previous  offer, which had been hampered through  the irregularity in the' debentures bylaws.- -The second offer was $535 better  upon the principal, and also meant a  saving;of from $700 to $800'upon interest acdourit'.'- The announcement of the  sale upon theseterms was received with  applause by the members qf the council.  City engineer McCulloch was then  called upon, for his report upon the condition of the opera house with respect  tb its safety as a place of public entertainment in case of fire. He replied  that in view of the alterations 'made  in the building he now regarded it as a  safe place for any audience which might  be assembled in it.  Alderman Gillett said he wished to  call the attention of the council to the  neglect which the management showed  with respect to the opening of the doors  upon the completion of any performance. Manager Annable, he said, did  not seem to care whether the doors were  opened or not, and it did not matter  very, much what improved means of  exit there were if no steps were taken  to see that the doors were opened and  kept open in case of accidents,  In view of the report of the city engineer it was decided to . renew the  license of the opera house to date from  the 15th of January, the date from  which the license was refused on the  i ground that the house was unsafe and  was too much of a firgtrap to be  licensed. The matter of improving the  approach to the Porto Rico lumber yard  was referred to the mayor and the city,  engineer. The same disposition was  made of the matter of the removal of  the city weigh scales, it being understood in this connection that an arrangement should be arrived at if possible with the Canadian Pacific Railway officials for the location of-the  scales on the railway fla.t.  A, resolution was then moved authorizing the removal of the stone from the  front of, the Phair hotel to block' No.  49, the site of the proposed high-school.  There being no further business-alde.r-  . man Selous called the attention of the  council to an attack: which had . been  made upon him in the columns of the  Mi ner. for his actions in connection with  the securing of plans for the new  school. The point of the attack was  that in.the matter of securing the plans  he had* been pulling in the interests of  one iparticular architect. He considered  that, he owed it to the council'to; make  a general denial of the charge and- to  add that there was not the slightest  foundation for it. '.        ���   '  .'Alderman Hamilton added ; that, he  ���was present at the meeting of the committee when alderman Selous, had  moved that plans,for the proposed building be invited from all the architects  in the city. * "  Mayor Fletcher remarked that.alderman Selous was evidently in -tlie same  boat with the. members of the; executive committee of the celebration, but  if alderman Selous would give the-matter; the same attention as' the; members  of.the committee; had: given theattack  made upon them it would not" worry  him very much.  Alderman Selous added that he was  not doing any worrying, but he thought  that in"-justice to'the council he,should  take some notice of the charges made  against him.  JOE PEEL GETS TWO YEARS  POR BREAKING INTO A STORE AT  ROBSON.  Judge Forin Disposes of a Long List  of Oases in the Speedy Trials  Court Yesterday.  <- "-Side-Wiped" hy Switch Engine. .  COLUMBUS, Ohio, July 8.���-Panhandle  passenger train No. 19, known as the  New York express, reached here at 1:45  p.m., and was "side wiped" by'a switch  engine just outside the Union station  today. Twenty-five people were injuered,  seven of them being so badly,hurt that  they were unable to proceed on their  way west with the train. The train was  approaching the station at a rapid rate  of speed, when the switch engine with  a number of cars" dashed out' from ' a  siding, striking the third coach of the  passenger train. The car and11 the one  immediately following were-completely  demolished. Both trains were stopped  at once and aid was -summoned. The  injured were removed to th'e. Union  station; where they were made' as comfortable 'as*- possible. As soo'n as the  wreckage could be dumped from the  ' tracks-nev" cars were substituted and the  train proceeded" on "its way "west.-. ���    '. ���*  FIRST BLOOD  IS  SPILLED  JAPANESE  AND  UNldN' FISHERMEN CLASH.  Steveston Again the Scene of Disturbance Between the Rival ,  Salmon Catchers. .'  VANCOUVER,, July   8'---[Special   to  The Tribune.]���-The first clash between  ���   i  T\vhitejinion7fishei*men-and^the-Japs-on--  the Fraser river occurred last evening.  All day there were rumors of trouble  impending and early in the evening a  number of Japanese boats started out  to fish. There were half a dozen of.the  fishermen's patrol boats on hand. Right  opposite Steveston a Jap boat started  to fish. The patrol boat, bore down and  asked the Japs to haul ih their nets and  '.proceed to their wharves. This the Japs  proceeded to do, but a moment later a  big crowd of Japs set out from shore  and told the two fishermen to keep on.  The patrol did not return and the, Japs  took out their temporary triumph in  shouting. Almost exactly the same thing  occurred at the mouth of the north arm,  where the numbers o* ooth. sides were  larger. One Jap had his arm badly  bruised in the fight which occurred while  another was cut up. No one was seriously injured and. everyone returned to  shore after the trouble. At MacPher-  son's cannery on- Dnsmore island the  union men cut open the ..heads of a  couple of Japs, and for a time the gore  flowed quite freely, but the injuries are  ���not necessarily serious. Otherwise there  were no serious affrays. All the Jap  boats are going out this afternoon and  more trouble is expected that will settle the whole matter. Chief Hussey is  on the scene with a number of provincial constables. The Japs .are carrying  shotguns and ammunition, according to  the statement of the chief of police of  Steveston.  Treasure From the North.  SEATTLE, July 8.---The steamer City  of Seattle has arrived from Lynn canal  with a treasure cargo of $600,000, all  save $100,000 consigned by the Canadian Bank of Commerce to the United  States assay office in this city. William  Wachter, a cattle trader, and Mr. Lee,  a miner, had $50,000 in dust. The Klondike crowd left Dawson June 29. At that  time nearly every producing claim in the  district was being worked and the government had 500 men employed in the  construction of roads on the greatest  gold producing streams in the district.  About 1000 people are said to have left  the Klondike for Nome and the Koyoku  since the river opened.  Judge Forin yesterday; disposed of a  large number of speedy trial cases and  as the offenders in nearly every, instance entered a plea of guilty what  promised to be a very long session of  the court was wound up in one day,  The interest of the crown was looked  after by A.M. Johnson.  The first case called was' that of rex  vs. Harris, the Slocan case' in which the  prisoner is charged 'with, having attempted to take his own life. The  prisoner^ has been out on his own bail  for some time in the sum of $500, and  upon the case being called the crown  gave notice that a stay of proceedings  had been entered by which the prosecution 'would be dropped. The prisoner  was accordingly ��� discharged. The next  case was that of rex vs. Gardner, in  which:the prisoner, William Gardner of  Kaslo, was. charged with assault. In  this case the court asked W. H. Bullock-Webster of-the provincial police  what the department considered . the  ends of justice reauired in the Gardner  case, to which Mr. Webster replied that  in view of the age of the prisoner and  the unpleasant disclosures made by the  witiiosses for .".'thei" crown he did; not  think it was desirable that the prisoner should bo sent to the penitentiary.  The- Court then imposed a sentence of  one year's imprisonment.  Joe Peel, the Indian arrested by constable Forrester for carrying firearms,  for which offense he is now serving a  sentence of 30 days; was arraigned upon  a charge of breaking into the store"of  H. K. Livingstone at Robson and stealing therefrom a quantity of goods. The  prisoner - is also suspected of having  committed a number of other offenses  in the vicinity of Robson, but these  were not prossed.. He entered a' plea of  not guilty and was sentenced to two  years in the penitentiary.  In the case of lex vs. Leyden the prisoner was not ready to proceed owing  to : the. absence" of' a material witness.  As the case had been prviously- adjourned the adjournment un "the, present  ,instance was made'till*the next sitting  ofl-; the. assize court.,-",. - ne~ -prisoner * js  charged with!'the theft of a small.quantity.1 of silver. -,   -  ���The case of rex vs. Pearse was adjourned until Saturday-morning next  owing to the absence -of- John William  Lowther, the. owner of ��� the . goods', .the  theft of. which is charged against the  prisoner' Pearse. The witness Lowther  was served with a subpena to attend  the court, which he disregarded, and in  consequence a bench warrant was issued for his; arrest, which- will be executed by provincial constable Young in  time,to have' the case disposed of on  Saturday next.  The case of rex vs. Smith, in which  the prisoner, John Smith of Fernie, was  charged with the theft of an opal ring  from the bartender of the Alberta hotel, at Fernie, was the last case on'the  list.   This case developed the only fight  of_the-day Thc-court���held���the-evi���  dence sufficient for a conviction and a  sentence of six months' .imprisonment  was imposed.  larity between the man and the published description of Blondin. The  stranger is now being held-to await the  arrival of officers from Boston. The  prisoner stoutly denies his identity,  claiming that he is Fred Hemlock. He  acknowledges, however, that he was  born in Boston. .People who^ have seen  him declare he has the characteristics  of a French Canadian. He seems much  depressed "over" his' arrest, and is constantly watched in the fear that he may  commit suicide.- The stranger came to  Grahamvilie a week ago in search of  work and was engaged^ to do, hostler's  duties about a hotel. A comparison of  the veins of the prisoner with the published description shows them to be almost identical, even0 to the India ink  mark on the arms.

LONDON, July 8.���The Times announces the death last Saturday of William  James Stilman, the author and journalist at his home in Surrey. He had been  ill for a long time.  In the reign of George III a tax was  levied on hats. For a hat that did not  exceed 4s. in value the duty was 3d., and  for one costing 12s. a duty of Is. had to  be paid,' while all exceeding this sum  were dutiable at the exorbitant rate  of 2s.  il  NEWPORT, R..L, July 8.���If the vie: .  tory of the Constitution over the Colum- -  bia and the Independence in the first'   -  of the three-cornered races on Satur--"  day was  significant  and   definite,  her*  winning today may be well character���.'.,  ized'as  overwhelmin**: and the  defeat -  of   the  Independence  as   positive,  and f--a  almost* hopeless.

NEW YORK, July 8.���The London  correspondent of the Tribune says: Although *ebary of drawing any final deductions from the telegraphed reports  of Saturday's yacht race, the opinion  in London is that the Independence is ���  no match for the Herreshoff boats.. If  she-is-as-much-slower-as-the-race-indi-���  cates, Mr .Lawson's protest against-the  exclusive action of the New York Yacht  Club will 'find new supporters in London, nor will there be any'disappointment at the failure of a boat of such an  undesirable type.  Peculiar Russian Sect.  NEW YORK, July 8.���The World today contains a St. Petersburg dispatch  which says: Twenty peasants, 12 of  them women, have been arrested anrt  imprisoned in the provinces of Bassana-  bia and Kherson for having been implicated in a new outbreak of Beguny atrocities. The Beguny is a strange sect,  which kills many of its votaries, the  victims willingly consenting to the sacrifice. The favorite method is to bury  alive those selected for the sacrifice.  In the cases just discovered the victims were given a more merciful death.  Some of the women arrested confessed  to having smothered members of their  families with pillows. The Beguny has  existed for nearly 30 years. Though its  followers are religious fanatics, the  Beguny was originally a political and  economical organization, its agitations  having always been directed towards-  greater personal liberty and political  power for individual members of society. Thepolitical strength of the Beguny  was crushed long ago, but its strange  religious  features  have thrived.  Rosebery Visits the King.  LONDON, July 8.���Lord Rosebery  came to London today and was received  in audience by the king at Marlborough  House. The public announcement of  this visit to his majesty soon after the  former premier's return from the continent, whence he arrived Saturday, excites much comment in view of the political situation. At the same time well  informed persons point out tliat it is extremely unlikely that the king will in.  any way attempt to intervene in what,  after all, is wholly a family quarrel of  the Liberal party. Several recent occurrences, however, articles in weighty  reviews, etc., seem to point to an organized effort to bring lord Rosebery  back into the political arena. it;]* iK<*?i*WC K/~  THE TRIBUNE i KELSON, B.

'  The British Columbia Mining Record  can very properly he classed as the  equal of any mining publication on the  Coast, both as to general make-up and  the character of its contents. In discussing the outlook for mining in the prov-.  ince, it is not at all sanguine of any  groat change in tho near future. It  gives the following as hypothetical reasons why the industry is in bad odor  among capitalists: 1. Inadequate mineral resources. 2. Exaggerated anticipations on the part of the investors.  3. Extravagance and, incompetence on  the part of the representatives of ��� investors. 4. Bad mining laws.-- 5..Unstable relations between labor and capital.  '6. Overtaxation and injurious incidence  of taxation. 7. Extensive swindling on  the part of the company promoters.  8. Abnormally high cost of production  from inefficiency of labor. It rmay be  stated with safety that the mining industry in this province is suffering from  mismanagement, incompetence, and  swindling. It is not suffering from bad  laws, for the mining laws of this province are exceptionally liberal. The cry  of overtaxation was raised for the same  purpose as was that, of inefficiency of  labor, that is, to cover the shortcomings  of| incompetent mine managers. British  Columbia is all right, and within a year  little will be heard of anything other  than the dividends declared by our great  metal and coal  mines.

Ltd  greatest failing is that he does not  think there are any limits to his will.  It is almost impossible to tell before  hand where he will be and what he will  do. It often happens that weeks pass  without my seeing him. Then he suddenly appears and I am amazed at his  knowledge-of ��� the details of what is  going on." Regarding emperor William's famous telegram to Mr. Kruger  at the time of the Jameson raid, prince  von Hohenlohe said: "If the emperor  had known that Jameson had so many  sons of ��� respectable English families  with him he would not have sent the  telegram. He thought Jameson had  only filibusters with him; and that it  was an act of brigandage," On his appointment to the imperial chancellorship he wrote as follows: "I know what  a burden I am taking upon my old  shoulders. I hope for nothing and am  resigned to everything."  ' BERLIN, July 8.���Emperor William  in his telegram of condolence to prince  Phillip von Hohenloe, son of prince von  Hohenloe, the ex-German imperial chancellor who died in Switzerland July 5th,  refers to the marked services prince  von Hohenloe rendered the unity of the  fatherland and says: "History will accord him an honorable place and I will  always keep him in remembrance." Count  von Buel'oAv. the present imperial chancellor, has also telegraphed his condolence to  prince von Hohenloe's family.  . The gross value of the mineral products (coal included) of the province  for the year 1900 was a little over ?1G,-  .000,000. The revenue from the sale of  free miners' certificates, general mining receipts, mineral tax, ;.and royalty  on coal was in the neighborhood of  ��400,000, "which is 2 1-2 per cent .on the  gross value of the output of the mines.  Of this $400,000, ?300,000 were expended  on roads and trails in the mining districts, and the cost of maintaining record offices in the mining divisions was  over   $100,000.     These   figures   are   ap-  _p_rp_ximately correct,_and^J.��=J;h.ey==!.aiLe,j  does the mining industry pay an' undue  proportion of the taxes of the province?  What is the value of* the products of  the farm and tho stock range, and what  taxes are received from these two. industries? The value-of-products of the  forest can surely be obtained, and the  revenue paid by the lumbering industry  can be approximated. If it is found  that these industries do not pay proportionately as high a rate of taxation as the mining industry, then the  rates of taxation should be adjusted.  But until accurate figures are obtained,  the ravings of such newspapers as the  ���Rossland Miner should not' be accepted  as facts.  Pianos to IJknt.  NKLSON, B. O.  great state.

If British Columbia had-such a man at tho head of  her government, what would the carping newspapers say that are now yelping  about  overtaxation?  MUST REINSTATE THE MEN  Less than a fourth of the men actually employed at mining in southeastern British Columbia work in the mines  at Rossland.

Is it possible that the miners at Rossland are'different from the  miners in other camps in British Columbia? Or is it probable-'that the men  in charge of the mines at Rossland are  not constituted as are other mine managers in the province? The Tribune is  of opinion that there will be no permanent peace, and consequently no permanent prosperity, at Rossland until  there is a change in the management  of the War Eagle and the Le Roi mines  ���and the sooner the change is made  the better it will be for British Columbia.

PITTSBURG, July 8.���The peremptory  dismissal on Saturday of 12 members of  the Amalgamated Association at, the  Wollsville plant of the American Steel  Company may seriously affect the' expected settlement this week of the iron  and steel strike. When seen this morning, prcside'nt' Schaffer of ;the Amalgamated Association said: "I cannot say  when or where the conference will take  place, but one thing is certain there will  be no conference until the men discharged at Wellsville are reinstated.  These men came to us," he continued,"  ."and we, shall protect them. If they  are not reinstated and the conference  postponed', a general'strike will come."  As usual the trouble comes from some  =middleman=.who=cannot=realize=thai>=he=  may be undoing the conservative work  of thoughtful men on both sides, or that  his action may involve the commercial  world. If the Wellsville matter, can he  settled the conference will then, it is  believed, be quickly arranged, an agreement reached and the strike .declared  off before the :end of the week. Thei;e  was a.resumption of work-in many-iron  and'steel mills today. The mills havev  been idle for two weeks for repairs.

Hoar contributes  an interesting paper to the July number of Scribner's" Magazine on "Some  Famous Orators I Have Heard." On  several occasions he listened to Gladstone debate in the hoiioe of common-',  and, contrasting his style of orat ivy  with that of Disraeli, he says: ' "Gladstone showed in his speech the pro-  founder reflection on the general subject, the more philosophy and the' in-  tenser ' earnestness; Disraeli showed  quickness of wit, a ready command of  his resources, ability for subtle distinctions, and glimpses of his almost Satanic capacity for mockery and jeer-  ing."  In 1S71 Senator Hoar heard Gladstone,  when there was a great struggle between him. and Disraeli over the parliamentary and municipal elections bill:  '���Gladstone was terribly in> earnest.  Ho began his speech by^a compliment  'to Northcote, his opponent, for wh-im  ho had shown his esteem, by sending  him to the United States as one of the  joint high commission to make the Ala-,  bam a treaty. But when Mr. Gladstone  was well under way. Sir Stafford ini;.2r-"  posed a dissent from something he said  by calling out, 'No, no,���a very fre-  ijuent practice in the house! Gladstone,  turned upon him savagely, with a tone  of anger which I might almost call ��� .*�����-'  rious: "Can the gentleman tolerate no  opinion but his own;that he interject",  his audible contradiction into the inid-:  die of my sentence?' The 'house evidently did not like it. Hughes, who  ti greed with Gladstone,, said Ito me:  'What a pity it is that he cannot control tiistemper-rthat is his great fault.' " :  Senator ��� Hoar saysr Gladstone had a;  tendency to somewhat involved spaooh.  and at the same time a gift of comp-ict  epigrammatic.'.-utterance on occasions.  The only; American orators which he  can recall who had this rare gift wore ���  Choate and Byarts.   He adds:  "When Mr.' Evarts, who was my n-ear  relative;���'������and,a man with whom I oould  .take a.liberty, came into-the senate;-I  said to him ;tha,t we should haco -to.,  ���inien.d. the rules so that a motion ..to  firijonrn wtpuid be in order in the middle  of a"sentence; tpwliich he replied -vh'i.v  he knew of nobodyin j,his country who  objected to long i-entences .except'���tlie''  criminal classes."  Senator Hoar heard Lyman. Beeehor,  then a very old man, before a meeting  of the members of the Massachusetts  legislature .in 1852, when the measure  known as the "Maine Liquor Law" was  pending. He bore unmistakable marks  of Advanced age. But there were one  or two passages that showed the povw  of the orator,-one especially ih which  ���he described the beauty and delight of  ��).(*"��� homes, and intemperance threatening them .with its waves like a great sea  Of lire/  "He saw Henry Ward I?eechei* several  times in private, ahcl'haci peasant talks'  with him, but never heard him speak on  any  occasion  when . he  put forth  ins  power:''--'.'-.-  "But if half that is told of his speeche.  l\  -during=the=civil_war7"some���of_them to  hostile and angry audiences, be true,  jh*3 was a consummate master. One story  is tojd of him which-1 suppose is true,  and if it be true, ranks him as oue of  the greatest -pasters of his art that  eygr Jived.. It is (-.aid that he was spaai-: ���  ing to', ft' great isroiyd in girminghani,  oi* perhaps Liverpool, ��� \vtiit-h cftnstantl:-  goaded. him with hostile Interruption."*,  so that he had great difficulty in getting  on. At last one fellow provoked t.!n-  cheers and applause of the audience by  crying out:- 'Why didn't you put clown  the rebellion in GO days as you said yr.i  *-ypuld?' Beecher paused a moment until  they became still, in their eagerness to  heiu* his Vepfy, and then hurled back.  'We should if they hgd been Englishmen.' The fierce, untamed animal hesitated a moment between unger and admiration, and then the English love of  fair play, and pluck prevailed and the  crowd cheered him and let him go on."  Rufus Choate's method was pure ���>���?������-  suasion:  "He never appealed .to base mot'.v-*:',  nor tried to awake coarse prejudices i-r  stormy passions. He indulged in no in.-  ���/jnfitive. His wit and sarcasm and ririi-  mijii --j-nHSed the victim almost as much  as' it a,'mus.e,f the bystanders. He had a  voice without" ai*y gruff or any ;*,h;-ill  tones and lie never p.U*a.inr**-] it or seemed  if} exert it to" its'"fullest capacity.  WJietJiiB*' you liked hini or disliked him  yon gave him your ears, erect and intent. He need manuscript a great deal,  evon (n speaking tp juries. When a  trial was on, lasting day** or \yeeks, lie  kept pen, inl*: and paper at hand iu his  hsdroom and would often get up in the  ^niddje of the night to write, down  ���thoughts that came to him as he la.y  }n J*eci, He >vas always careful to krep  warm. It was .said he prepared fir a  great jury argument by taking off eight  great coats and drinking eight cup3 of  'green tea."  Of his power of persuasion, Senator  Hoar says:  "It was a curious sight to see on a  -jury 12 hard-headed and intelligent  countrymen���farmers, town officers,  trustees, men chosen by their neighbors  f.o transact their important affairs���after an argument by some clear-head ml  lawyer for the defense about somo apparently not very doul'tful transaction,  SAVINGS BANK DEPARTMENT:  Interest allowed on deposits.

The shoulder turned a little against the  speaker���-the averted eye���and then the  ehanere;   first,   the   changed   posture   of  the   body;   the   slight   opening   of   the  mouth;: theri the look, first of curiosity,  and then of doubt, then of respect; the  surrender of the eye to the eye of the  great   advocate,    then   the   spell,   the  charm,  the  .Treat  enchantment���till   at  last, jury and audience were all; swept  away, and followed the conqueror captive in his triumphal marcli.    He gesticulated  with  his  whole body.    Wendell  Phillips  most irreverently as well  as  most unjustly  compared him  to a  monkey  in  convulsions.    His   bowings  'down  and: straightening himself again  were spoken  of by another  critic, not  'unfriendly,,,as opening and shutting like  a   jackknife.

Edward Everett paid this, tribute to  Choate in Fanueil--Hp.il the week after  the great advocated death:  "He is sometimes satisfied, in. concise  opigiaromatic clauses, to skirmish with  his light troops, and drive in the enemy's outposts. It is. only on fitting occasions, when great principles are to be  vindicated, and solemn truths told, when:  some moral o:* political Waterloo or'  Solferino is to be fought, that he puts  on the entire panoply of his gorgeous  rhetoric. It is then "that his majestic  sentences swell to the dimensions *-f  his majesticvthought; then it is that we  hear afar off the awful roar of his rifled  ordnance;,and when he has stormed the  heights, and ' broken the: center, and  ���trampled the sauares, and; turned the  .staggoi'ing,wings;of the adversary, that  he sounds his imperial clarion along the  whole line of battle, and moves forward  with all his hosts in one overwhelming  charge.":   xx^... . ������..  y ' '-:..  Edward Everett seems to senator  Hoar, or. Uie whole, pur; best example  of the.orator, pure and simple: ;' .,;:77  ."Webster .'.'.was ,a.:great statesma.ii; a  great lawyer, a great advocate,; a great  public-teacher.' To" all these his matchless oratory 'was but an instrument and  incident. Choate was a. great winner  of cases, and as relaxation he gave, in  the brief vacations of an overworked  professional life (he once defined a lawyer's vacation as the time after he has  put a Question to a witness while lie is  waiting for an answer), a few wonderful literary and historical addresses. He  gave a brief period of brilliant but mo.*t  unwilling service in each house of congress. He made some powerful political speeches to popular audiences. But  his heart was always in the court house.*  No gambler ever hankered for the feverish -delight of the gaming table as  Choate did for'that absorbing game,  half chance, half skill, where 12 human  dice must al] turn up together one way,  or there is no victory. But Everett i.~  always the orator. He was ar clergy;  man a little while. He was minister to  England a little while. He was representative in congress -and sgnatpr/ JTo  was ?. governor of the Qprnmonwealth.  Jn_thj3se^pJa<*e'*^lLe=^did=goo.d^sei":'ic3=  HEAD  OFFICE. TORONTO.

Little of these "cuiht!S  is remembered now."  Senator Hoar also considers him the  foremost American orator in one olasss:  "There is one function of the orator,  Peculiar to our country, and almost  wholly unknown elsewhere. This is the  giving utterance to the emotion of the  peopJ��, whether pf joy or sorrow, on the  occasions when its soul is deeply stirred,  ���when some great man dies, or there Is  a great victory or defeat, or some notable anniversary is celebrated. This office was filled by other men, on some  few occasions by Daniel Webster himself, but by no man better than Everett.  A town, or city, or state is very human. In sorrow, it must utter'its cry  of pain; in victory, its note of'"triumph,  be fixed .and made more steadfast by  expression, It mUPfc givg vPiP��' t.P its  love and its approbation and itH condemnation, It must register the high  and low water mark of its tide, its rising  and its sinking in heat and cold. This  ofiice Edward Everett, for nearly 50  years, performed for Massachusetts and  for the whole country. In his orations  are preserved and recorded everything  of the emotion of the great hours of-  our people's history. The camera of  his delicate photography has preserved  for future generations what passed in  the soul of his own in the times that  tried the souls of such men."  If one would really appreciate the  beauty of Evgretfs styl��, senator Hoar  makes this* suggestionf '-ReaiJ the welcome to Lafayette or the close of the  matchless eulpgy on that illustrious object of the people's love. Read the close  of the oration pn Washington, Read  the contrast pf Washington and. Marlborough, Read the , beautiful passage  where, just before the ocean cable was  laid, the rich fancy of the speaker describes: 'The thoughts that we think  up here on the earth's surface in the  cheerful light of day���clothing themselves with elementary sparks, and  shooting with fiery speed in a moment,  in the twinkling of an eye, from hemisphere to hemisphere, for dawn among  the uncouth monsters that wallow in  the nether seas, along the wreck-paved  floor, through the oozy dungeons of the  rayless deep; the last intelligence of  the crops, whose dancing tasseis will in  The Endeavorers.  CINCINNATI, July 8.���After the business sessions of Saturday and the evangelistic and other mass meetings of yesterday the regular .programme of the  20th international convention of the  Christian Endeavorers were begun today, v Several of the largest churches  -in' the central part of 'the city were  used, in addition to Odeon Hall and  their three large auditoriums heretofore  used. At the Auditorium president  Clarke presiding and'H. C. Lincoln of  Philadelphia,as director of music, "The  Twentieth Century Home" ,was the  topic, with addresses by Clarence J.  Harris, Atlanta; Edwin Forrest Hallen-  beck, Albany; Ira Landrith, Nashville;  J. E. Pounds, Cleveland; W. G-. Marsh,  Adelaide; Australia, and Robert Johnson, London.1 ��� At the First Lutheran  church, J. Willis-Baer presiding and S.  Foster as musical"* director, there were  addresses on the school method for the  Junior Christian Endeavorers. At Odeon  Hall the field secretary, Clarence E.  Eberman, presided and addresses were  made by local,, district and state union  officials. The noonday evangelical services were conducted'by Dr. C. L. Work.  v When the Transvaal war was at its  height, Paul: Kruger, sent a commissioner to England to. find out if there were  any more men left there. The commissioner wired from London to say that  therewere ..four,- million men and women  "knocking about the; town," that there  was no excitement, and that men were  begging to be sent, to fight the Boers.  Kruger- wired -back: "Go north." The  commissioner -found, himself in Newcastle eventually,, and wired to Kruger:  VFor God's sake,; stop that war!

He had seen a coal  ���mine..;. ���'"'. ���'���;-.���   ��� ���' 7       V Julian Corbett may be said to have  established himself as an authority on  the-British navy.7A while ago Mr. Corbett'wrote to the admiralty to suggest  that a new first-class battleship then  building be ohristened "Drake." A formal intimation'that his letter nab" been  received and should have due attention  was followed, after a decent interval,  by a dignified reply from my lords, in  which they expressed their regret at not  being able to'carry out Mr. Corbett's  suggestion, and explained that it would  be contrary to precedent to name a  first-class battleship after a bird.  The day following the accident to sir  Thomas Lipton's cup challenger Shamrock II, king Edward Seventh was talking to certain of his friends, w-htm one  of them happened to' remark that the  only thing- that eseaped intact from the  -disaster were- the boom and the staysail. "Was the boom all right?" quickly  =asked=the"-"kingr=='.'Sb=ri"understandrslr;"  was the reply. "That makes the accident all the more extraordinary," remarked the king, reflectively; "for, if  sir Thomas Lipton's 'boom' has not suffered, how are we to account for the  bringing down of his sales."  The late Rev. JR. S. Storrs was a very  hard man to interview, for he'resented  the inquisi'tiVoneiss of the .press, 'and was  icy to its agents. One evening' a reporter  attended a reception' at his house, and, in  the course of the: evening, touched his  arm and whispered: "Doctor, I'm from  the. ��� ; I want the names of guests  and all the. particulars." Yes,", doctor  Storrs whispered in return; ."this way,  this way," and taking the young, man's  arm, he escorted him to the front door  and put him out,  C4^0lf\NI  PACIFIC RAILWAY CO.

storekeeper.   If, however, it is intended
to be'used for-home''necessities, it will
go through a further pr.ocess.    ln this
case, after" the sun.has-playo.d on it for
a day, it will-be taken' up and buried
in the cattle kraal for>affew hours. When
it i** ,taken"o'ut 'it will"' be, 'foi'-:the time
being, as pliable as a kid glove, andean
be, consequently; -easily, handled .during
the subsequent dressing processes, which
consist of greasing, stretching, twisting,
etc."  ThelBoe*''ni*ovidee.all.his own riding and„ ^driving' gear.1*   He will cut up
the .hide-into"strips'to mend;his,traces
or other harness;"or to'make reims, for
since the buck have 'been driven.farther
north he has;'to fall back on the bullock
to supply this iriosf 'necessary item in a
Boer household. - These reims are now;
simply strips of hide ''about. two inches
in width and are used- for all purposes.-
If the harness breaks^ on a journey it
is fastened nn witli a'i'eiiri; if -mything
happens to the wa*ron the reim again
comes   into  use  to repai**  the.  break.
Besides this,- every bullock in a wagon
span has his own' 6spreolai reim, which
in  the  daytime  is  knotted  around' his
horns, but at' night 'is used to fasten
the beast to the wagon chain. ,The Boer
is honest- enough in;.moat things, but
there is one exception to this rule., It
is said that the man ,has not yet been
discovered who would not'steal a better umbrella than his' own if he got the
chance, and the same, though in a far
more literal sense, may be' said of the
Boer as regards his reim.   A really good
worth its .weight in'silvej, in fact, silver
would not purchase'it,   The Beer does
not believe' in show; and it is a good
thing this is the case, for some ,of his
handiwork is ghastly to look upon; but-
he does 'believe in durability, and the
harness he turns out .will stand a lot of
usage.    His reins wi.ll be made of the
ubiquitous   reims,   bu,t  instead  of   fastening or buckling at the ends,  each-
will have a small knob of tough skin
doubled over at the extremities to prevent them slipping through the fingers.

tion, I will explain as ple'^rlj" a's j pan
the formation of these., winds. \V*3 'all
know if we pour alcohol in t-io palm of
our hand a cooling sensaci jn if- ovperi-
enced. Heat is required in evaporation,
and the cooling sensation is (Vie lo Iofs

the law of conservation of -.ner-;/, no
energy is ever wasted, iui:l tho -heat
that is required in evaporation will
again become liberated thro i*?"i the process of precipitation. Thi- is an essential fact in the explanatio 1 of the OliUi-
ook winds. It is also v/3'.l Unown that a
volume of air at. a given. tom*>ei'at''*'e
and pressure na3 a certain capacity rnr
holding mo'.-jt i*e. and that, i* *ve increase the temperature, thereby increasing the volume, we also increase the
moisture-holding capacity, and, inversely, if we decrease the temperature, we
decrease  its  capacity.    The  moist  air
1 from the Pacific moving landward becomes cooled hy coming in contact with
the colder mounatin, anrt still further
by expansion due to elevation. As the
air becomes more and more elevated
the • dew-point is finally reached and
precipitation takes • piace. As before
stated, when , precipitation takes place
latent heat is liberated, the temperature of the air is increased, it expands,
and, becoming still lighter, rises higher-
until the dew-point is reached, and precipitation is resumed once more. By
this succession of coolings practically
all the moisture is deposited on the
westward side of the mountain, and
when it reaches the summit it is practically dry air whose temperature is
far above the normal for that elevation.
It is now ready for its downward journey, and- its temperature, la gradually
increased,, due this time to compression,
and when it readies the plains on the
leeward side of the mountain it is like
a brep.th from a furnace in the intensity
of its heat.   Like an unsaturated sponge,
hit absorbs all the moisture in its? path,
causing the drifts of snow to vanish as
if by magic, yet not appreciably increasing the volumes of the rivers and
creeks."—Bismarck (N. D.) Tribune-.

Boots and Shoes
Notwithstanding that there are'
two bankrupt stocks of boots and
shoes now being offered in this city,.
I am prepared to meet the prices-
listed for same, and as my stock is-
fresh—jnst opened np—from the'
manufacturers, I would solicit' am
inspection before purchasing.
The results that I have obtained1
since advertising my discontinuance'
in business have been most satisfactory. The. great variety of ray
stock of clothing and gents' furnishing.'*, with all prices marked in*
plain figures, has proven an irresistible factor in securing sales.
Those who have not taken advantage of may reductions should!
call and compare prices and quotations with those offered in any
other store in the city. Everything-
is offered at eastern wholesale cost. •
