Some  Interesting Reading for  People  Wlio.:Are  Inclined to Claim  ���    Salvage on Drift Stuff.  li  i'l,  IS  The trial of 11.

Much  complaint-has been received by the pro-  ���' vincialv police respecting petty thefts  along the water front, and for thisvrea-  ;'��� son an attempt was made in the Robitaille case to impress upon the public  mind that tho finding of anything alio .4  in the lake does not give the finder an\  title to it. Tliis was probably tne c.e.  point which tho authorities had in the  proceedings against Robitaille, and sin c  the hearing of the case'iias had the effect of directing attention to the law  in such matters they have doubtles-  succccded in their object. In view *���'  tliis feature of tlio case magistrate  Crease lias seen lit to deliver a writtei  judgment, which  is appended:  The question of salvage contcndcc"  for by Mr. Taylor does not really eu!.c!  into tlie consideration of thin case, filing floats, or in tho Avords of witnessc  defining them singly, *'a raft," cr "boat-  landing," and "a con'miction to !.  used for a definite purpose," and thero  fore a chattel, the finder has at coramoi  law no lien upon  it for a recompens*  Jn respect of his trouble in securing -.t  and in taking care of it for tbe owner  but he is entitled to be paid any reason  able expenses incurred in respect of tb-  thing    found.

The   conference   adjourned   until   tomorrow without having reached a set-  ��� tlement.  At the. conclusion of the session president Shaffer was.seen, but re-  * fused to intimate by even a word what  had   been   done.   Other   conferees   seen  were equally reticent as to the proceedings.  NEWPORT NEWS, Va., July il��� At'  a meeting- tonight of the machinists the.  strike at the Newport News ship yards  was declared .oft by a unanimous vote.:  SILVER KING IS  SHIPPING  WILL KEEP THE SMALL FURNACE  SUPPLIED.  conditional sales and chattel liens, p'p  1-12. im.

No evidence lia-  been oltercd for the defense, and no  expenses have been shown to have been  incurred by tho accused,, tlie finder, 1  cannot find that any lion exists. Ono  would, have arisen had there 'been a  reward offered ,by the owners, tho Nelson.

"Very often ot  the lakes the rafts break up. and thei-  is. a. class of men who pilfer the log  and hide" them in the-woods 'or tak  them to the saw "mills. These logs aiv  very- valuable.

The floats are the result of builds  ing and construction. Their parts hav**  been made a definite substantive -whoi c  for a specific purpose, and it might a-  well be claimed that a floating ;wha:'J  or a shack adrift could be brought within the category named, which would be  manifestly absurd. The remedy whici;  should'have been invoked is.the civil  process of replevin.  I therefore dismiss the charge, hut  witho'.'.t costs.  Soine Good Shooting.  ,.. .

HAWAIIAN ISLAND AFFAIRS  No Agreement Reached.  PITTSBURG, Pa., July 11.���The great  labor conference at the Hotel Lincoln  today failed to come to any agreement.  Another conference will be held at 10  o'clock tomorrow morning.. The object  of the conference 'was the settlement  of the strike ordered by the Amalgamated Association of Iron, Steel and Tin  Perjury'Charge Dismissed.  " Al.  July  3rd,  via Victoria,  July   11.���The   perjury   charge   against  editor Walter G.  Smith  was dismissed  today at the instance of the prosecution.  , Attorney-general  Dole'entered  a  nolk  prosequi in judge "Gear's court, declaring that there was no evidence to warrant the supposition that a jury would  .convict. Smith was indicted by the re-  .cent grand jury on-account .of testimonj  "he-^ave "regarding allcgcd**-attemp'ts..*'tCt*  Secure   bribes   for   legislators, for   the.  .support of a'franchise for-a railroad iL  Hawaii. Smith testified that he did not  (-.now of any corporation that had beci  asked   fer bribes,  though  he had  pre ���  viously testified that he knew of sucl  a   circumstance.' The .-attorney-genera  stated to the court that he had investigated the matter and had come to tin  conclusion that the testimony of Smitl  was correct, except as to the confusioi.  arising from the fact that-the railwaj  company in question was not. incorporated. The fact that it was not incorporated  made  Smith's  testimony':that; h<v  knew of no corporations that had;beet,  asked for.' bribes correct. In dismissin*;  the case judge Gear took occasion tt  criticize the-action of the attorney-gen-  , eral. He declared that the grand, jurj  had  brought the indictment under ad'  vice   of  the  attorney-general's   depart-,  ment that there was ���sufficient evidenc.'  to warrant such a'proceeding. The at-  J-orney-generr.l str.ted  that  he had  noi t  "^">"��iTt��d"t.o^tak^  had asked the Hon. Paul Neumann, whe  died suddenly yesterday, to act for tht  prosecution in the matter. Neumann  consented and a commission making  him deputy attorney-general had beet  issued the day before his death. Dolt  stated that he did not know of any othei  attorney in Honolulu as free from bias  as was-Neumann, who had kept alool  from the bitter factional fights of recent  days,, whom he could ask to act in the  "case. He felt that he might possibly be  unconsciously biased himself, but under  the circumstance:) he had decided tc  take hold of the case and the result of  his investigations w.as the withdrawal  of the prosecution. .Judge Gear discharged the accused and thus ended tht  most sensational case growing out ol  the recent grand jury indictments on  the charge that there had been bribers  in the legislature.  Tlie funeral of thu late Paul Neumann, held yesterday afternoon undei  the auspices of the Masonic fraternity,-  was one of the largest over seen in Honolulu. The flags were at half mast on the  government buildings and the entire  community took part in the obsequies.  The Supreme Court, the United-States  District Court and all other courts adjourned for the day on hearing of Neumann's, death, and in the United Stater  District. Court, a committee of the Hawaiian Bar Association presented resolutions which would' be spread on the  record of the court. Judge Estee de-  liyered. an eloquent eulogy of the deceased. Acting governor Cooper and attorney-general Dole also addressed tht  court, paying tributes to the dead lawyer, and "a number of other attorney*;  spoke in the same strain.  M. C. Lennon, an attorney said to be  from San Francisco, was arrested for  fraud just-as he was about to leave here  on the Zealandia for the coast yesterday. He is alleged to have passed a number of worthless checks. Lennon is said  to have been a well known lawyer and  politician ia Wisconsin. He is now in  Oahu jail, having failed to secure bail.  A few days ago he was married to a  Miss Coats of Honolulu and when arrested on the Zealandia he was leaving  her.-He was accused of passing a worthless check for ?100, and since his arrest  on this chargs a number of other alleged similar transactions have been  reported. :.���...  Captain Gigbrd of the Silver King  inine;; was in Nelson yesterday. He is  endeavoring to make arrangements with  the0educational department for the stationing of a school teacher at the mine  in order that the education of the children of the men employed may not bo  entirely neglected. Considerable additions have been made to" the working  force at the mine.recently and many of  the miners engaged are men of families,  so that educational facilities have be-'  come a matter of importance. Captain  Gifford states that the company is willing to furnish a school building as well  as fuel and light and all that the educational department is asked to do  is to furnish a teacher. The captain had,  .an interview with Mr. Houston upon  the subject and received a promise of  his support in his efforts to secure the  necessary assistance from the authorities at Victoria.  Captain Gifford is now making regular shipments to the company's smelter and says that ore will continue to  be sent down the hill in sufficient quantities to keep the small furnace running steadily. He has now some 130  men on the pay :*oll at the mine, and  while expressin**; himself as unwilling  to go into particulars as to the manner  in which the property .was developing,  said he had no hesitation in saying that  the Silver King mine had never looked  better than it did at present, and lie  ventured the prediction that it would  continue to be a producer for a greater  period than some of the properties  which at present were receiving more  public attention. Captain Gifford states  that he contemplates making further  additions to tho working staff at the  mine within the next few daysf.The Hall  Mines smelter is now running on Silver  ��� King ore ~and the people who are hand-  ���ling it sa"y't that the ore' is uniformly  ���richer than any which was formerly  /received" .from the"~mine. "Although*"the-  ',' smelter "has been working-steadily for  'some time past.it has been running  on custom ore. and the present week  will witness the first production of  matte from the company's own ore since  its  reconstruction.  The deal' on the Venus group was to  have been closed up in Toronto yesterday, and Nelson E. Fell of the Athabasca company is now in the east, where  the head office of the Venus company  is, but no word has been received in this  city as to whether the deal has gone  through or hot. The terms of the Athabasca company's bond calls for the payment of $25,000 in,cash and $125,000 in  four payments of an equal "amount  spread over.a period of one year. This  will -rive the. holders of Venus stock  17 cents per share, which is within a  few points'of the highest price reached  by the Venus stock after the installation  .of the rotary-miliV.. It is estimated that  there/is sufficient ore at present in sight  ;on the. Venus 'to keep a lOvstamp mill  =going=for^two=yearst=so=that=the=pur-*  chasers of the property will be able  to make the property pay. for itself oat  of the work already done upon it. It  is hot thought there,-is the least likelihood of the-deal falling through, but  if-'it" does the. Venus'-cqmpany will at  once install-a stamp-mill \ and procaed  with the development'"itself.        ,  C. E. Sraitheri.ngale of the Slocan  Drill is in Nelson oh a business trip.  He says that the conditions in the Slocan are improving.;-.It.is announced that  the Hewitt mine oh Four Mile creek  is to resume shipments this-week, and  that the ore will be sent.out at the rate  of two cars per week. H.v Sherry and  George Gormley, who are operating the  Black Prince at the head of Springer  creek, have another shipment of 20 tour,  ready, which is to be sent forward to  the Nelson smelter. This will make 120  tons, which they have shipped from  this property this season. P. McVicar.  who has a lease on the Bondholder,  will also make a small shipment this  wee!:.     ���  Control of Two Lines  TACOMA, Wash., July 11.���The Northern Pacific has purchased the Western  American' Company's system and perfected an agreement with ��� the Tacoma  Eastern, obviating all possibility of a  bitter railroad construction war which  was threatened when tho Northern Pacific gave the two-local roads the alternative of accepting its terms or having  their lines paralleled. The Western  American Company's lir.e taps a rich  coal district, and Northern Pacific coal  fields are located in the territory. In  order to reach these fields the Northern  Pacific was preparing to build, and the  Western American Company, which,  owns extensive coal properties, had prepared to parallel the Northern Pacific  into Tacoma at a cost of $70,000. Sites  for bunkers in this city had. been acquired. The purchase of the road involves a traffic agreement for handling  the Western American Company's coal  output. The situation with regard to  the Tacoma Eastern was somewhat similar. This road taps a rich timber belt  and is projected toward the Nisqually  coal fleldn. Tho Northern Pacific had  threatened to extend from Orting toward the same territory, and condem  nation proceedings had been commenced. These will now be dropped,  though eventually the Northern Pacific  will extend. The Tacoma Eastern,  which will cross the mountains aud dip  into a rich agricultural country in Chehalis county, was expected ultimately  to pass into the hands of another transcontinental line. It is believed by the  terms of the Northern Pacific deal that  no unfriendly sale can be accomplished,  though the Tacoma Eastern is free to  dispose of its interests. Ladd & Tilton,  Portland bankers, .own practically all  the stock of-the Tacoma Eastern.-. The  Western American\ company is backed  by unlimited capital, coal operators of  Iowa, Indiana and the middle west be-  ins interested.  ���  MAROONED ON AN ISLAND  JAP FISHERMEN  ARE  THUS DISPOSED OF,  :--Shob Herself.

Tha Miners'  Union has called out the crews .of the  War Eagle and Center Star mines to  take effect tomorrow morning at 7  o'clock, when the day. shift goes io  work. This will add 300 men to the  list of idle meu. Several of the smaller  mines have conceded the demand for an  advanco of 50 cents per day in mucker-*'  wages and have not been* interfered  with. The situation has been without  incident as yet and fairly good spirts  prevail among the parties interested.  Business men and. others are devoting  every effort to bring about an arrangement between the miners and mine  managers. A special session of the board  of trade is taking place tonight for this  purpose.  Pouring Into San Francisco.  OMAHA, Neb., July 11.���Four thousand Epworth Leaguers passed through  this city yesterday. Added to the great  number of Epworth Leaguers was an  unusually large travel of summer tourists to Colorado and other western states  who were attracted by the low rates.  The Union Pacific during the past. 21  hours has sent 21 extra passenger trains  west, besides additional equipment on  all the regular- trains. Included in today's party was a delegation from Pennsylvania, which required four special  trains, which were run in sections as a  part of the Union Pacific's California  express. Other roads report unusually  heavy travel, most of them running  from three to six extra trains carry!n:.;  delegates to San Francisco.  Disastrous Bush Fires.  TORONTO, July 11.���A private letter  received here says bush fires have rendered fifty families homeless in the  neighborhood of Liskeward, Temiscam-  ing district, and assistance is required  to avert starvation. Liskeward village  was saved by a fall of rain.  VANCOUVER, July 11���[Special to  The Tribune.]���Twenty-five boats of th-2  union fishermen's patrol bore, down on  the fleet of Japanese fishermen in the  Gulf of Georgia last night and early  this morning. According to all reports,  which are still being brought in this  evening, no person on either side was  seriously hurt, but dozens.of shots were  fired and between 20 and 30 of the  strike-breaking Japs were carried away  after their boats , had been smashed,  and their near and guns were sunk.  The Japs were practically marooned on'  an island 20 miles in the Gulf of Georgia and will be left there until the end  of the season to get off the best way  they know how. Where they are landed is still the secret of the fishermen,  who declare that it would take weeks  of patient searching by the police to  find the Japs who are so carefully put  out of business. One man was hurt with  an ax, but none of-the shots firid  wounded anyone.  This morning a passing steamer towed  in several of the upturned boats and  at noon a boat arrived with six white  prisoners o:i board who had been captured by a couple of constables while  trying to board one of the Japanese  fishing boats. Three hundred boats, including union fishermen and Japs, carried firearms on the gulf last night.  The plan of the union men was to stop  the Japs fishing with as little trouble as  possible", the operation usually being  to come on the'Japs unawares in the  darkness and hold them up with'two  or three pointed rifles. This plan worked in most cases, but on several occasions the Japs got the drop on the strikers and the latter had to move away.  Shots were fired continuously all night,  here and there, but they 'were usually  only signals of warning and both parties took care not to do bodily injury  to the. other. --     ��� _���-.���,...  -..Boat-after .boat ,o��- the Japanese jv.us.  boarded' and .the Japs carried away.  At least 10 boats were- floating in the  gulf this morning bottom up, and there  'was ��xeat destruction of nets and boat  fixtures. The-patrol boat load of union  fishermen who were captured were foreigners���Swedes, and Austrians���there  being but one Englishman in the party.  Thoy were tearing away the net from a  Jap boat in which were concealed two  police officers and in boarding the Jap  craft actually stepped on one of these  men before the alarm was given. The  Japs had* before this submitted and  their arms were thrown overboard, lo  that the strikers were unprepared for  the look they took down the two gun  ,barrels of the officers. While one officer covered them the other stacked the  guns in one end of the boat and with  the Japs as sailors the outfit was towod  ashore. 7.A rescue of the prisoners was  attempted by another union boat and  some shots were exchanged between  them and the police, but further trouble  iceased=at=this=point=and=the=niea=W-ere=  safely landed in jail.  The largest court room in town wa*  crowded this afternoon when the hearing acainst these men for intimidation  and molesting the Japs was begun. The  strikers have ' employed counsel; who  spent two hours in cross-examination  of the two Japs. The hearing was quite  orderly, but many threats were made by  the strikers to do further damage should  these men be given long terms of imprisonment.  Tore Up Tracks and Bridges..  HELENA, Mont., July 11.���Particulars of the washout at Corbin Tuesday  night show it to have been the worst  this year in Montana. It-worked havoc  with Northern Pacific tracks leading  from Helena to Boulder. The filling in  of a trestle on the Great Northern had  formed a dam across the gulch and when  a cloud burst over the gulch at 6 o'clock  a great wave of water six fc.';t high and  200 feet wide swept against it and backed  up for a quarter of a mile until it was  level with the track, when the bank  burst with a roar like thunder. The  water swept to Wickes, tearing up and  twisting the Northern Pacific tracks and  bridges for five miles. The flood brought  a landslide down on the house of Mrs.  Charles Turner near Wickes, and a  great boulder crushed it like an egg  shell, but the woman and children escaped to a neighbor's house. The flood  carried heavy timbers and debris down  the gulch to Corbin, burying the Peck  concentrator in four feet of mud and  crushing in one side of the building,  'lhe plant will be shut down for some  time. The damage to the machinery ii  heavy.    Reilly's Battery Is at Home.  WALLA WALLA, Wash., July 11 ���  One hundred and forty men, formerly of  Battery F, Fifth Artillery, and now  known as "Reilly's Battery," arrived  yesterday to garrison Fort Walla Walla  for an indefinite period. The time of  many of the soldiers is nearly up. and  they will be mustered out and discharged. The veterans of two years'  service in the Philippine and Chinese  wars are a splendid lot of men. The  men are under Thomas Ridgeway, cap  tain.   Ridgeway was chosen to captain  the artillery when Reilly was killed. The  other officers are first sergeant Follins-  . by, quartermaster sergeant Kubltza, stable sergeant George Winniger, sergeants  Proctor,   Gonnenwein,   Hunt,   Sunder-  mann, Killeen and Wood, corporals Carter, Gardner, Wright, Roberts, Effridge,  .Carr, Lynch, Myers, Austin and Bellamy.  "Reilly was killed before the forbidden wall of the city of ..Pekin,"-'said privates Drew and Boyen last'night. "Two  days we fought and on the morning of  the third captain Reilly was struck in  the mouth by a Boxer bullet from the  interior of the city..   He. was killed instantly."   He was a splendid captain as  far as governing the men and military  discipline go.   He was considered a hard  worker., We left China in May and the  Philippines last month, and so are fresh  from the field of action.   As to the Chinese situation things are quiet.    With  Russia in possession" of Manchuria there  will be a fight to oust herand we look  for a war between Russia and Japan as  the next move in the orient of importance. ''All accounts as far as -we know  of Boxer atrocities are correct.    They  certainly are a race of fiends; but were  urged on by the higher Chinese classes."  It made the boys wild to-see,their atrocities and our men were with difficulty  restrained    sometimes/However, .the  Russians,  French  and  Germans,  especially the former, kept up with them.  We' have  seen  Russian  cruelties  that  could  equal   anything  recorded.    They  spared neither women nor children."  WENT THROUGH A BRIDGE  ENTIRE STRUCTURE GIVES WAT  UNDER   SLIGHT  WEIGHT.  Passenger Train Had Just Crossed and  the Escape of Its Occupants Was  Simply Marvelous.  Urban Population.  WASHINGTON, July ll.���The census  office issued a bulletin today concerning  the urban population of the country. It  shows that 28,411,898 people in the  United States live in cities and towns  of over 4000 population.

WALLA WALLA, July ll.-rOne week  from   Sunday   any   business   house   ur  saloon  in  the county, of Walla Walla  opening its doors will be prosecuted on  complaint.    Seventy-three    farmers    of  this county presented a petition today  to prosecuting attorney Oscar Cain requesting that the section of Ballinger's  code of Washington relating to keeping  open saloons and places of amusements  be enforced."  The section specifies a fine  between $30 and $250 for violation. The  Jfarmors, allege that their harvest hands  come into 'town- Sunday; get drunk and  are either unfit for work Monday or do  not turn up at all.   The prosecuting attorney states that he., will,, enforce the  law.    He,said, last night: ' "I .have no  desire  to  evade  the  text- of the  code,  though it could be done.    The reason I  have  never  enforced-it  before  is  that  no complaint has been made and I was  not supposed officially to know the violation.   One petitioner would have been  enough   to   procure   the ,enforcement.  Seventy-three have petitioned, and the  penalty  of  neglect to  enforce, is   loss  of   office."     Mr.   Cain   then 'made   the  startling     statement:*    "All .business  houses  of  any  description.Will   be  included in this. .The petitioners specified  only saloons, but now that a start has  been made we will enforce the law to  the utmost.    It means that no business  houses would be open'a week from Sunday without being prosecuted on complaint."    Asked  if he would prosecute  on   his   own   resnonsibility,   Mr.   Cain  _isaid:__1The::e_wilLhe r.ovneed People-  ::���:  Hi  ���: i  in town are ready to,take the prosecu  tion up and make complaint on violation." The petitioners are all farmers  within a radius of 10 miles of Walla  Walla.- For years the harvest hands  have worked all week and on Sundays  have gotten drunk and have been intoxicated for several days. In the middle  of harvest the conseauence was heavy  loss, especially when hands were short.  This agitation resulted. The prosecuting, attorney looks at the letter of the  law! His theory is that If saloons must  close, there shall he no discrimination  and business houses must -jo with them.  Similarly, if business houses and ''a-  loons'cannot keep open in Walla Walla  it Is unfair they should In any part of  tlie county. Business houses will be  notified throu-rh the press to close. A  circular letter will ;be sent to some.  This will be the only notification.  Corean Troubles.  BERLIN. July ll.���The Cologne Gazette publishes a dispatch from Seoul,  Corea, dated July 0, saying that bloody  conflicts extending over a period of 10  days have occurred on the Island of  Quelpart between the Catholic missionaries and their pupils and the populace  of the island. Fifteen of the natives  and about 1300 of the mission pupils  are reported to have been killed during the encounters. The governor of  Quelpart, according to the dispatch, says  the trouble was the fault of the pupils  and arose from their support of the tax  collectors in levying' illegal taxes upon  the natives.

CLEVELAND, Ohio, July 11.���A special to the Plain Dealer from Conneaut,  Ohio, says:    Just after 10 o'clock today three cars of the east and' locar  freight went through the Nickel Plate  bridge  at  Springfield,  Pa.    The  train  left Conneaut only a few minutes before the accident in charge of engineer  William Griffith and conductor Phil 'A.  Moore, both of Buffalo. fThe latter was"  killed outright.    The bridge gang was  at work on the bridge and the 10 men.  injured are mostly workmen.   The horrible affair occurred just after thepas-'  senger train No. 3 had pulled through.  The local, after the passenger train had '  passed, pushed three cars heavily laden"  out on to the structure to unload stone  for the masons working beneath on,the  large stone foundations.    The work, of  unloading   had  .hardly   begun,'   when,  without warning,  the whole  structure  bearing the three laden cars filled with,  laborers fell with an awful crash Into  the valley.    So suddt..  was the affair  that only  one  man,  a  mason  named  George Smith, had a chance to jump  in time to save himself from injury.  Five Italians are included in_the dead.���  These men, as tbe train fell,  had v.l  leaped as far as possible, so that only '  two or three were" buried under the av -  ful mass of debris at the bottom of the  ravine.   -These were easily pulled out ���  and carried to the top of the hill',and^~ *\  placed  on  the lawn  awaiting  medical  *���*"  assistance,  which  came promptly. -��� As i>  soon as the news of the accident reached Conneaut, the connecting train .md a; \r_  hurriedly constructed  ambulance train "<**'"  was  dispatched  to   the  scene  and   tho .���*  wounded were brought to Conneaut. The  living were conveyed to a hospital.,The  remains  of-'the dead  were  transferred  to the morgue for identification.  The place where the accident occuned' ���  "'  was a crooked creek directly north of  East Springfield.    For many years the * j  creek  has* been  spanned   by  a  heavy J '  structural  steel  bridge.    On  May  J 0th  work of filling'up the valley "was "com- -J r  menced.    Down  in  the ravine* 55  feet "  below masons were at work*buildinS a'�� '  large stone abutment. - _     . /    <���  The scene presented a horrible ap- J* >  pearance. The steel was wrenched and  twisted into one huge masst The three  cars containing stone .were broken into  by this and the railway track obliterated in% the pile. The'accident stopped  all traffic on the line. The passen^ars  weie sent over the Lake Shore. The  cause of the wreck can be laid only to>  accident. For-a long time/all -tiains  have been recuired to reduce1 their  speedto four miles an hour in p*~.3'*iug  over the bridge. Railroad men regard it  as little less than miraculous '���h'a'" it  withstood the strain of the heavy laden  passenger train.

GALVESTON, Texas., July 11.���Two  hundred dollars will more than cover  the damage occasioned by wind and  water from last night's storm. Four  small houses were floated from their  foundations and overturned. The tide  was six feet, which is the highest since  188G, with the exception of the storm  of last September. The Galveston  weather bureau at 10 o'clock announced  that the disturbance is moving northwest, and is now central west of San  Antonio. A high tide is predicted for  Galveston tonight, but nothing like as  high as that of last night.  <?4  Ask Removal of Eveehardt.  TOPEKA. Kansas, July 11.���A delegation from the colored ministerial union  of Kansas is here endeavoring to persuade governor Stanley to remove sheriff Everhardt of Leavenworth county  from office. They claim the sheriff was  guilty of malfeasance in not attempting  to rescue or protect Fred Alexander,  the young negro who was burned at the  stake by a Leavenworth mob on January 15th last. The governor and attorney general are carefully considering  the evidence presented and it is expected by some, that the officer will be  removed.  In Qeneral.

Electric  Cars Run Without Trolleys  The.Metropolitan Street Railway Company's officials of Now York  have repeatedly said that the only reason that  they continued  to  experiment'with the  clumsy, dirty and unsafe compressed air  cars was because the expense of putting  in electrical subways on crosstown linos:  is  prohibitory.    This is  because,  as it  was said, of tlio interference of all sorts  of pipe lines and subways at the avenues whieh makes it cost as much to  cross a single avenue as it does to build  a mile of straight track.   Now that Mr.  Edison  has' perfected  his  storage  battery this may solve the problem and result in  finally  relieving the streets of  New York of the horse cars, but there  may be no need to even wait for this.  Paris has set New York an example in  .     tliis matter, and lias electric cars in us5  over miles of track without using either  the storage battery, an overhead trolley  Avire or an underground  trolley. The'se  lines  which   have just  been  completed  for the companies of tlie Bast and West,  reach to the Opera on one side aiid to  Montfermen on the other, use a surface  contact system not unlike tliat of cap-  ' tain Murphy, whicli was exhibited last  year at Manhattan -Beach.   That in use  in Taris is the Diatto system. Along-the  surface of the street, at intervals of 10  feet, are placed metal studs, each slightly  raisotl  above  the  surface  and  eaoh  fixed firmly in place.   A shoe fitted under the car slides along ph.these'studs,  touching a second stud, each time before  it leaves the last.    Under each stud ;is  a piece of soft iron rod floating-in a cup  of mercury.   A cable carrying the working  current  runs   beneath   the  surfac-'  of the street and connects the cups one  ���with another.   As the cars pass magnets  in them raise up the soft iron rods beneath and this makes the contact that,  feeds the current to the car's motors.'  As the car'passes the rods drop back,  leaving the studs on theP'stveet' electrically   dead.    It has been   ar-rued that  snow   and   ice:'would   make   such   systems unworkable in our winters,.but in  answer to this it may be said that it is  just  as   necessary^to   keep   the  tracks,  of the trolley lines clear as it would be  :).* to clear the line of studs.  ,Uses for Liquid Air.  As there is reason to believe that a  syndicate has been formed for the purpose of floating a limited company ostensibly for the commercial utilization  of- liquid air, one or two observations  . on this interesting substance" may be  timely. In the judgment of the most  prominent authorities on the subject,  the commercial use of liquid air is not  an economic possibility. It is true that  a larg-e number. if suggestions have  been made pointing to its adaptability  for different purposes. It has been proposed as an explosive,: and liquid air  cartridges have actually been used with  'indifferent results for blasting. Mr.  Tesla lias been credited with its employment for increasing electrical conductivity, and thereby transporting-elec-  tric energy for thousands of. miles without loss. Liquid air, too. has been suggested as a motive power, a preservative, a caustic for medical purposes, and^  ===a=variet-y-of^otlicr=similar^emproylrrefftl7  Robt. Kllgour,         Vice-President.

HOLT,  Manager Nelson Brunch.   .  to this it places ih the order of injurious-  ness, beginning wMth the.worst first, the  cigar, the pipe, and the cigarette.  It has to be borne in mind, however,  that liquid air for power purposes cost's  ���200 times as much as steam., requiring  200 degrees (Fahrenheit) of frost for its  production, and that in any case it is  expensive.to make, and most difficult of  preservation. No doubt it excited great  hopes on its entry into the world as a  manufactured product, but the bettor in-'  formed now regard it as destined to relapse into the position of a more scientific curiosity.   ': _.;  Cigarettes, Pipes and Cigars;  The London Lancet, the foremost medical journal in mo world, has como f;o  the conclusion that the most injurious'  way to smoke tobacco is by means of  a cigar. The pipe, it declares, is next  in   harmfulness,   and   tho   much-abused  ���>  cigarette least laden with evil effect*:.  It is practically certain, tho Lancet declares, that the nicotine of tobacco docs  not ��oceu!' as-such, at any rate to any  extent, in the smoke. By far tho  greater portion of the nicotine in tobacco���and the amount of nicotine in  Virginia tobacco does-not often exceed  one per cent, although there is a popular idea that the. quantity of nicotine  is much more than this���is destroyed by  , the combustion. New products, however, aret formed, consisting of tobacco  taroils, which are undoubtedly' poisonous. The foul smell of a well-used pipe  is due to these oils, .in which'analysis  has shown but a trifling quantity of  nicotine. The composition of these oils  indicates that they are very closely related to nicotine, and their chief constituent is pyridine, and it and its "relatives" are responsible for the violent  headache, trembling and giddiness following excessive smokin*-". The degree  of poisonous quality of the smoke, however, probably depends largely upon tlie  completeness of the combustion; Tho  combustion of the cigarette is probably  more complete than that of the tobacco  in a pipe or of tho uncut leaf of a cigar.  But the pipe serves as a condenser, the  condensed products not. reaching ui~  mouth. The filthy fluid accumulating in  a pipe is very poisonous. A good deal  of condensation must take place in the  cigar, and, moreover, the products reacn  the mouth and are absorbed.   According  Most Icy Sro5 in the World.  The coldest region ���,-*, the. world, that  of Werkonjank,  in  Siberia,   where the  lowest temperature ���cf 90 degrees Fahrenheit has beeen observed and the mean  of January's 4S degrees Fahrenheit, is  inhabited   by   about   10,500   persons   cf  the Jakut and Lam lit races.   In a laixe  part of the region, according to the representation of Sergius Kovalik, in this  bulletin of the Geographical Society of  Irkutsk,  the air  is  so  dry and winds  are  so  rare  that  the intensity  of  tne  .cold is not fully realized.   Farther east  there are'sometimes terrible storms. In  the summer time the temperature sometimes rises to SG degrees F. in the shade,  while  it freezes  at  night.    The  latter  part of this season is often marked by  copious rains and extensive inundations.'  Vegetation   is   scanty.    There are   n*  trees, only meadows.    The people hunt  fur-bearing animals, fish and raise cattle and reindeer.   It requires about'eight  cows  to  support  a  family,  four  being>  milked in the summer and two in the  winter.    The cattle are fed hay in the  winter and allowed to go put occasionally when'it'is not too cold, their teats  being  carefully  covered   up   with  felt:  Milk is the principal food, occasionally'  supplemented   with   hares,   which   are  quite   abundant     The    houses   are    of  wood, covered with clay, and consist of  one room, in which the people and their  animais   live   together.     The  wealthier  classes are better provided with lodging  and food.   The people are very hospitable but excessively punctilious concerning points of honor, such as the placo at  table.  New Pipes in the Museum.  Four hundred pipes, no two of which'  r.ro alike, form part of a coll ection of  .Indian relics recently presented to ".lie  American Museum of Natural History  by Ancii-i-v- K. Douglasu.

It is easy  to distinguish the modern from the ancient pipes.. Those of prehistoric date  excel in beauty rf workmanship.' The  ancient tribes had a much higher artistic sense, corresponding somewhat to  that of the Aztecs in Mexico. Smoking  was not only a social pleasure to them  but a solemn rite. All the Indian artists'  patient skill went into the making of  elaborate pipes. They workedoWith stone  implements of a very crude sort. The  pipes for the- most part are stone, but  son:... live of pipe,clay and hard woods!  While they are fantastic in shape and  decoration, they show a curious similarity to pipes of modern time's. There  arc not so many ways in whicli a pipe  can be smoked', ,but the Indians varied  the rite, as much as possible. For ex^-  ample, thirty-nine of the pipes have the  clay stem set at a. widely obtuse angle  to the bowl; as against 103 which form  the ordinary right angle between bowl  and stem.

What the lawyers call an" interesting  argument took place in chambers before  judge Forin yesterady. It was one of  those cases in which every other consideration had disappeared save the lawyers' costs, and'the argument was solely directed as to which set of lawyers  should be permitted to secure his costs.  _out-Qf-What-\va3-left over-from-an-exe--  cutiou which had been-issued in a. previous case. The nominal defendant in  ihe case was"'the Lode Star Mining  Company, which formerly operated the  little steamer -Marion. A man named  Mackenzie had supplied the steamer  with wood, for, which he sued and got.  judgment. An execution followed judgment, and when "th-i Maokonalo claim  had been satisfied thoro was.left over  some  $70,  There wore then left' some  execution ' creditors with unsatisfied  claims, Borne execution creditors- who  .were also workmen, ana some men who  ���had claims for sarvices as sailors on  the steamer. These.-claimants had all  received legal'assistance in the prpsecu-  ,r.ir>7* nf the claims, and the argument of  yesterday narrowed down.. to, the nice  legal; question; as to which set of lawyers should be permitted to eat up what:  was left for., .their costs. The "question  which was passed up tb "the������'court to  decide was whether all execution wed-'-  itors were entitled to their casks under  the. see.tiqn or whetht-u* it was restricted  to the first execution ci editor. The lawyers ln the argument were W. A. Macdonald, who represented the men employed on the steamer, R. M. Macdonald,  who represented execution creditors,  and P. El Wilson, who represented execution creditors who were also workmen. The court reserved judgment, but  the lawyers -'doubtless do not mind  waiting.  Mining Records,  There were but two new locations recorded1 in the Nelson record ofllce yesterday. The :Mingues on Ymir. mountain, a relocation of the Diamond, by  J. E.
