Some Improvements Recommended by  the^ComniitteeWill Be Made, but  Others Are Hung Up.  The members of tho city council held  a short session Inst evening when the  current accounts were passed and a  number of minor repairs were ordered  to be made. The consideration of the  report of the finance committee developed the only division during the meeting. In JJiis report occurred a recommendation that contractor Hepburn be  paid the sum of $S7.50 for lumber left  over from tlio recent celebration. This  the majority of the members of the  council did not understand, and as a result this portion of the report was  thrown out. When mayor Fletcher arrived, however, he explained that ths  lumber in question had been used by  the city, and that nothing remained for  the council to do but pay the bill. It  was Hobson's choice for the council,  and the bill was ordered paid along  with the others.  , The public works committee presented  a lengthy report recommending a number of improvements. Such of them as  were considered " absolutely necessary  wore ordered to be done and the others  wero cither left over or referred to the  mayor and  city  engineer l'or such  ac-  _ tion as might be considered necessary.  'Clause'one, recommending certain repairs to the city stables, was adopted.  The second clause, recommending that  Vernon street, from Kootenay to Stanley, be graded,' was amended so that  nothing but necessary repairs will be  made at present. Clause.three, recommending that the sidewalk on the south  side of Houston street be extended to  Josephine street, was knocked out.  Clause four.' recommending that Hendryx street,' between Silica arid Carbonate street, be graded and ditched, was  left to the city engineer. -   -  The other clauses of tho report were  adopted as read. They were as follows:  Five���That a catch basin be put in at  tho corner of Victoria and Stanley  streets; sixth���that a temporary catch  ., 'basin be put iu the lane of block'36 at  '���"At cost of $10; seventh���that a car of  sewer  pipe  be  purchased  at a cost of  .$250j that the^outlet of.Cottonwood lake  be-dammed. at a cost 'of $250,"sb as to-'  increase the storage of water in the lake  for electric light'purposes; ninth���that  a suitable building be erected over the  city weigh scales for the use of the  wei-rhmaster.  - 'The  fire,  water and  light committee  . had a report before the council in which  they  recommended' the   purchase  of  a  split pulley at a cost of $298, and that  necossary repairs be made to ono of tho  armatures   at  the   light   station.     The  first recommendation of the committee  was referred.to mayor Fletcher and alderman Paterson for action and the second was adopted. .  The application of James Sproat for  , three months' leave of absence was referred to the superintendent, as well as  the application of George Beaumont for  .  employment in Sproat's place during the  former's absence.  E. A. Crease was given a month's^ya-  She overhauled the next very rapidly  and several minutes before the outward  mark was reached, she held a proud position in the van, beating the Columbia  four minutes-and seven seconds. Luffing beautifully round-the mark, she  buckled down to a pretty thresh to windward and iri this short leg she gained  56 seconds. In the last leg she gained  six seconds and romped past the stake  boat a winner of the commodore cup.  The extension of. the bowsprit of the  Constitution will necessitate a remeas-  urement of the yacht for time allowance.  Roughly estimated the Constitution  should allow the Columbia 51 seconds  over a 21-mile course, so on corrected  t:***.e the Constitution is a winner by  3 .minutes 27 seconds.  ^catibn7^ancli-afteF"the tax~rate by-law-*  were formally reconsidered aiid put  through their final stages the council  adjourned: ������''��� *  . Mrs! Kruger Buried.  '-..PRETORIA,'July 22.���-Mrs. Kruser,  wife of former president Kruger of tho  South African republic, who died Saturday last of pneumonia, after an illness  of three days, was buried here this afternoon. ���-���������.  ���AMSTERDAM.rTilly 22.���Former president Kruger of the South African republic is very depressed at the death  of his wife, but his health is unaffected.  On the contrary, he has thrown himself  into his work with -more than his usual  energy.  Press comment on the death of Mrs.  Kruger is sympathetic. The newspapers  do not attach any political significance  to the event.  The Constitution a Fiyer.  NEW YORK, .Tuly 22.���The race between the Constitution and Columbia on  Long Island sound today demonstrated  that the Constitution is-the faster boat.  In a light breeze and smooth water over  a 21-mile course the Columbia was d3-  feated 4 minutes 18 seconds elapsed  time. The cruise of the New York  Yacht Club opened brilliantly today  with the contest for three valuable cups,  presented by commodore Ledyard. After the rendezvous at Glen Cove tho  squadron got under way for the starting-  line off Matincook Point buoy, where  the steam yacht Reverie with the regatta committee aboard let go her anchor. The whole fleet was eligible to  compete and was divided into three  classes, schooners, single masted vessels  and yawls in cruising trim and the two  cup defenders, Constitution and Columbia in racing trim. Naturally the principal interest was on the two splendid'  racers which came to the encounter in  thoroughly fit condition. Both had been  hauled out and polished and burnished  until their underbodies gleamed. Many  defects in the rig of the Constitution  had been remedied.  The water was smooth and the wind  wjis fairly steady from start to finish.  ic Constitution started absolutely last.  Second Tiitl for Canada Cup  CHICAGO, July 22.���Th'e second trial  for the Canada cup was sailed this afternoon in a northeast wind, averaging 20  miles an hour, and was won by the Cadillac of Detroit, Detroit of Detroit second, Illinois third, Mineola" fourth and  Prairie fifth. The last three boats are  from Chicago. -The Milwaukee, which  won tho first race sailed Saturday, lost  her rudder 20 minutes after starting and  was compelled to drop out. The Yankee of Chicago and Orion of Milwaukee  turned back and did not go over the  course. The course today was nine  miles to windward and return.

There were in the party 75 members of the Cobourg band and 112 members of the Broadview cadets of Toronto.  The boys are on their annual tour of  camp duty.  ST. PETERSBURG, July 22.���The Novosti reports that the capital of the copper company in which, according to the  Novo Vremya, United States senator W.  A. Clark hr.s joined with Kieff capitalists, will be 20,000,000 roubles, of which  Kieff will supply 3,000,000 roubles and  Moscow 4,600,000. The Ascension mines,  near Semipalatintsk, are among the  richest. It is said the government  granted the original syndicate a subsidy of 2,500.000 roubles. Senator Clark  will visit Kieff in the autumn, his son  going to Siberia to inspect the mines.      I  John McKane arrived in Nelson yesterday from Rossland on his, way to the  Lavina group in the Lardo, upon which  his company has mapped out extensive  work   for   the   summer.     Mr.   McKane  will wait over in Nelson for a couple  of days, in order to meet the company's  engineer, who is to lay the work out,  and is at present a guest at the Phair.  Mr. McKane is generally well inform-  I ed upon Rossland matters, and for this  reason a Tribune representative sought  an interview with him upon the pres-:  ent miners' strike.   In speaking on this  subject,   Mr.   McKane  said  one  would  hardly realize that there was a strike  on in Rossland, but for the larse number of idle men seen' on the streets in  the evening.   Despite predictions to the  contrary, everything remaied euiet and  orderly.   This was clearly demonstrated  the other day when the miners," to the  number of 1000, held their annual picnic,  without  the  slightest  disorder  of  any kind and with no indication of intoxication on the part of any man.in  the entire number.   There is no reason  why  the   miners   of  Kootenay   require  any such testimony of this nature, but  when so much is written and said to  intimate  that  they  are  on  the  whole  a disorderly set of men, there is some  excuse for setting out what they do in*  contrast to what others appear so fond  of  saying  they will   do.    I  have  been  at picnics before, and I have seen strikers' processions irf other countries, but  f have yet to see or learn of a more- respectable body of men than those who  paraded   the   streets   of   Rossland   the  other day.   In short, I consider that one  of the great losses of the. present strike  lies in the fact that many of these men'  by reason of the strike will seek employment elsewhere.   They are going out  quickly, and as a rule the most desirable of.the men are going." Up to the  present it  is  estimated  that  from  500'  to 700 men have g-one out of the ciitid-  to seek  employment elsewhere,  simply"'  because there does not appear to be 'a  disposition to give and .take a little on  both sides.   That a solution of the present difficulty could be. reached by- this  means appears to be the opinion of almost every reasonable man'in the camp,  but so far no intelligent move in this  direction has been--made.-  For my-own  part,'when I think over the years since  these mines fell into the hands of their  present owners,' I can't"help saying, O,  what a fall for the camp was there.  Over-capitalization, iiiutiipulntion, in a  word, fake. If from tlio standpoint of  the mines themselves a fight wore necessary, why was it not made upon the  eight-hour law whon it was first put  into effect. There would have been  some sense and justice In the mine owners then standing shoulder to shoulder  and demanding a reduced wage for a  reduced day of eight hours. But where  were the present Rossland mine owners  then? In the opinion of many, they  were simply lying low to make disgraceful flotations at the right moment and  scoop the public, who had confidence in  their ability and integrity. Could the  War Eagle fight the eight-hour law  when the Center Star had not bubbled  forth with a capital of ?2,500,000 at a  premium of 50 cents per share? Could  Whittaker Wright take a stand honestly when his-beautiful methods and  flotations had not matured? Properties  bought by ex-governor Macintosh for a  trifle, comparatively, $150,000 and $250,-  000, floated on the London market fen*  $2,500,000 and $3,000,000. ln the case of  the War-Eagle ��� and Center Star, J. B.  Hastings, the then idol of the Rossland  public, and-upon .whose examination the  Crown" Point, War Eagle,-'..and Center  Star were bought/made his pile by bearing the stock. He has vanished into  thin air, like some other idols that we  now have "might do to the general advantage of the camp. What of the War  Eagle now? All the War Eagle now  bears is a debt of-$600,000. Its yoke is  not easy, but Kirby and Blackstock aro  light.    ���  Take the Le Roi. Did W. A. Carlyle  stand Wright's methods? No. He refused point blank,to be subject, or make  a tool of himself/- to Whittaker Wright,  or to stoop to stock exchange fakirism.  The Globe disaster finished Wright, but  today Carlyle holds the respect of the  people'of Rossland, who now only fully  appreciate his sterling worth, and they  are glad to know that he is filling one  of the highest positions in the mining  world with credit to himself and the  ��� directors of the.great Rio Tinto mine.  If Carlyle were in Rossland today there  might be a strike,-but I could get 1000  m.eff in Rossland to swear" that there  would be no throat-cutting or stabbing  in the back game. - Blackstock has been  crying out" in Toronto months ago that  wages would have to come down,' and  today the Rossland Miner is bought to  fight the unions. This is denied by the  great open fighters ,.-.who bought/ the  ,Miner,", and Heinze .i.s^called ,inr.to .sub-,  ���'stantiate:,t'h"e~"lie7~"Toiiay -Heinze, in'the  Butte Reveille, his ownrpaper, says the  Rossland Miner is sold, and ��� demands  that his personal agent in -Rossland give  publicity  to  the statement.    Why  all  this  duplicity?  Why should McDonald and Kirby prepare and present obnoxious resolutions  to tho Rossland Board of.Trade with a  view to-enlisting the sympathy and support of that intelligent and prominent  body?   Why?   I tell you that there are  wheels within wheels, and a great many  men in Rossland who have no connection with the labor unions are in strong  sympathy  with    them   in  the   present  strike,  and  many of  them  appreciate  the stand which has been taken by The  Tribune, which is fair to the camp, in  that it does not go to the extreme either  way.    What is needed more than-anything else is an intelligent presentation  of tho present difficulty, so that the public can understand what is at issue be-  between the men who own the mines and  tho men who are required to work them.  There  has   been   altogether   too  much  prating   about   the   difficulties    under  wliich capital labors owing to the mining laws.    Why not strike at the real  evil from which the Rossland camp is  suffering,   over-capitalization ";p.nd   manipulation for stock exchange purposes?  Admitting that the mining laws of British Columbia are riot by any means perfect, have they inflicted the untold injury to this province done by the rottenness and robbery of the late high-  class promoters?   The present strike in  the Rossland camp is due largely to the  desire of the men- managing- over-capitalized   properties   to  make   the   labor  unions the scapegoats for their own sins.  This is a-phaso of tho difficulty which  should be fully understood before anyone attempts-to. pass upon the respective  merits of the two parties to the labor  dispute   in  the  Rossland   camp.     It  is  not solely a question of wages.   It cannot, be because the advance demanded  by  tlie muckers  in  the Le Roi  would  not  amount  in , a  year's   operation   to  over  .E 5000, arid the owners of the Le  Roi   are   supposed   to   have   $15,000,000  worth of ore in sight in their property  which- only  requires  tlie  labor  of  the  miners to make it marketable.   Mining  companies when  they have  $15,000,000  worth  of  ore in  sight  do  not usually  abandon it simply because ��5000 have  been added to the cost of the property's  working per annum.  -   As to the outcome of the present trouble, Mr. McKane said that matters had  not yet sufficiently crystalized  to ona-'  hie   anyone   to   speak   with   assurance,  but all hoped to see conciliation tried,  and there was a general feeling that in  the.near- future common sense and-good  fellowship will prevail and work be resumed in what should be tbe most prosperous   mining    camp    on   the    North  American - continent.  the Chinese government had finally been  adopted. The redemption.of the bonds  to be issued will begin in 1902 and the  plan contemplates the entire liquidation of both principal and. interest fiy  1940. It is expected that China will  raise $23,000,000 annually. This sum is  ,to be used to pay the- interest on the  bonds and to form a sinking fund for  the ultimate liquidation of the principal  IN THE STRIKERS' CAMPS  A TORONTO REPORTER  INVESTIGATES TOE HIMSELF.  Bisley Shooting.  , LONDON, July 22.���In the rifle shooting competitions at Bisley, held under  the auspices of the National Rifle Association, sergeant Proctor of the Seaforth Hnghlanders won the Dominion of  Canada grand aggregate challenge trophy with a score of 354.

'  Striking Tire men Return to Work, as  Do the WiJke&barre Machinists���  The Steel-Workers.  FROM  PROVINCIAL POINTS  Contractors Getting Beady.  PILOT BAY, July 22.'���[Special to The  Tribune.]���Johnson Brothers, who have  secured a contract for the first 200 feet  of the Commonwealth tunnel, have  taken a crew of men up Hooker creek  to the property with the intention of  beginning work at once. The intention  of the company is to drive a 400 foot  tunnel on the big led*re on the Sultan  claim. The present contract is expected  to take three months to comrlete, two  shifts being employed. The "Commonwealth group, wliich comprises, four  claims, has a good showing of high  grade gray copper and galena cr-*.  Improved With Work.

Johnson and Workman have returned from the Grand  Prize group on Rose Pass,' and report  that the work done this season has considerably enhanced the value- of ,the  property, an improvement'in both the  quantity and quality of the galena in  the main ledge being noticeable as'depth  is gained.  GRAND FORKS NEWS NOTES  VOLCANIC BROWN TO ORGANIZE  A DEVELOPMENT COMPANY. .  Boundary   Line Will Not Be Moved  North, but a Branch of an American Railway Will.  GRAND FORKS, July 22.���[Special to  The Tribune.]���R. A. Brown has decided to organize a joint stock company  for the purpose of developing his well-  known Volcanic and Fantantine group  of claims in Brown's camp,* north fork  of Kettle; river. Development >work was  resumed a week ago. The Volcanic has  probably the best surface ^showing in  the Boundary country. Its enormous  iron cap is a landmark visible;for miles.  The American members of-the International Boundary survey, after completing their labors in the vicinity of  Midway, are now engaged in delimit-:,  ing the frontier near this city. TherA  is no foundation for the sensational report that Grand Forks would be found  to be located on American territory. The  line passes a point over two miles south  of the city. The surveyors intimate that  the boundary is approximately correct,  and that consequently no changes in  the locations of the monuments will be  made.  There has been a marked improvement in business since the commencement of construction work on the Republic branch of the Great Northern  railway. The outfits of a half dozen  sub-contractors are strung along the  line between here and Cascade,' and  grading is actually in progress within  two miles of Grand Forks. The clearing  of the right-of-way is nearly finished.  Construction work on the branch line  from Carson to Phoenix is expected to  be started within a fortnight. A portion of the outfit of Jack Stewart of  Spokane, who has the contract, reached  here last week. There is still a great  scarcity of laborers, and at the present  outlook the demand promises to exceed  the supply for weeks to come. A gang  of 300, hired by Pat Welch, will reach  here today and will be employed in this  vicinity.  There is a movement on foot to amalgamate Grand Forks and its neighbor,  Columbia. The negotiations have not  advanced beyond the preliminary stage.  court dissolving the injunction rendered  August 30, '1900, by justice Farwell in  the high court of justice, which enjoined  goneral secretary Bell of the Amalgamated Society of Railway Servants and  restraining secretary Holmes from  "watching and besetting" the Great  Western railroad ,- stations and approaches with a view of inducing non-  unionists to refrain from taking the  places of railroad strikers. This action  of the house of lords restores justice  Farwell's judgment. The house held  that it was not the intention of the  legislature to prevent a trades union  from being sued if, through its officers,  it was guilty of illegalities.  TO PREVENT CONSUMPTION  Sustained an Injunction.  LONDON, July 22.���The house of lords  has reversed the decision of the appeal  Congress Opened in London.  LONDON, July 22.���The British congress for the prevention of consumption was opened today by field marshal  H. R. H. the duke of Cambridge, president of the congress, who welcomed the  foreign delegates to the congress and  spoke of the interest taken in the congress by king Edward. Lord Lansdowne,  the foreign secretary, also welcomed the  delegates and in the name of the government promised all the assistance the  government was able to afford the congress in its endeavors to combat a disease more deadly than war. After the  lord mayor of London, Frank Green,  lord Strathcona and others had addressed the congress, lord Lister, one of the  British vice presidents of the congress,  in a few words conveyed the thanks of  that body to Professor Koch of Germany  and the other scientists for their welcome, saying they knew the enemy they  had to deal with and that it was not  only the prevention but the cure of consumption that the congress hoped to  effect. A telegram was read from king  Edward to the duke of Cambridge as  follows: "I pray you heartily to welcome for me the eminent delegates of  almost every nation who have assembled under your presidency and to express to them my earnest hope that the  result of the deliberations of the congress will be to assist the world in mitigating this dread disease which has  baffled the most distinguished physicians for so long."  Prior to the adjournment of the day's  session of the congress the (hike of Cambridge announced that a gift of ��120,-  000 would be coming for the purpose  of establishing the first public tuberculosis sanitarium as soon as the recommendations of the congress concerning  its establishment had been formulated.  Four hundred foreign delegates attended today's opening session. They included a number of Americans and Canadians. Several ambassadors and foreign ministers, including Joseph If.  Choate, the American ambassador, also  were present.  GHASTLY FIND ON THE TRAIL  BODIES OF SIX MEN FOUND NEAR  .   CAPE ROMANOFF.  Evidently Perished From Starvation and  Exposure���^Terrific Surf Sweeping Nome Beach.  ' NOME, July 10, via Seattle, July 22.���  A tragic story comes from St. Michael.  A party o'f men en route to Nome recently found the bodies of six men nt a  point near Cape Romanoff. It is presumed they all. froze to death during  some one of the terrible, blizzards that  prevailed last winter. The bodies were  scattered at intervals, five of them about  a quarter of a mile apart. ���Each had  some camp equipment near him, but"no  food. One of the dead mon had been  evidently injured or sick, as-he lay on  a litter constructed ^pfy,y[ pair of��� oai-s  and ������**, canvas sheet. Jt would scein  that the storm mtist'liavo overcome  those carrying him. -Evidently becoming exhausted they had abandoned him  and wandered off. each for himself to  perish where found. General Hand  thinks they were a party of prospectors,  who, in an effort to reach St. Michael,  had run out of provisions and perished  from  exhaustion  and exoosure. !i  PORT TOWNSEND, - July 22.���The  steamship Oregon lias arrived here. Tlie  Oregon sailed from Nome July 13th.  For several days previous to her sailing a fearful surf was sweeping the  beach at Nome. A party consisting of  ox-governor Ogilvie of Yukon territory,  Dr. Herbert B. Hatch, and Mrs. 13. S.  Walker, wife of captain Walker, whilo  being landed from the St. Paulina steam  launch, barely escaped drowning.  News comes from Unamlnk island that  two brothers named Sutherland, and a  man named Jackson were probably murdered. The three men were landed  there last fall by tlio schooner Thomas  F. Bayard. She returned for them this  season and found a collapsed tent. Inside were a coat and vest, both of which  were pierced with knife cuts. One of  the Sutherlands was known to have  $1000 when he landed on the island.  Judge Leamy Banqueted.  ' GREENWOOD,, July'22���[Special- to  The Tribune.]���Andrew Leamy, the  newly appointed county court judge for  the district of Kootenay, was tonight  banqueted at the Hotel Armstrong by  members of the local bar. Judge Leamy  formally opened court this morning and  was the recipient of an address and congratulations on his appointment to the  bench.  The Chinese Indemnity.  WASHINGTON, July 22.���The state  department received a dispatch today  from commissioner Rockhill at Pekin  announcing that a plan for the payment of the indemnity to the powers by  Steamer on Fire.  VICTORIA, July 22.���The master of  the steamer Nell, which arrived today,  reports that 10 days ago when he was  waiting for his tide to enter a creek below Fort Simpson-he watched a large  two-masted passenger steamer, seemingly an American vessel, which was  evidently on fire. For three-quarters  .oLanJi ou r_sh e Jayvstil 1 off JDundas JsJanjL  with a great cloud of smoke a hundred  feet above her spars and her hull hidden in a pall of steam, as though water  was being put on the fire. Then she ran  towards Dundas island, as though the  officers wero running her ashore. The  Nell's oflicers watched her for a long  time until the smoke obliterated their  vision, and when it cleared she was  gone. They made inquiries, but could  learn nothing of her whatever. The  crew must have got the fire under control and proceeded to their, destination.  To Meet Waldersee.  VICTOUIA, July 22.���Count Edmund  von Larlscli is here on his way to San  'Francisco to meet count von Waldersee,  who Is to return from China by way  of America.

VICTORIA, July 22.���Everett defeated  Victoria in the baseball game this afternoon by a score of 10 to 5. Costly errors  in the lirst five innings were, the cause  of the one-sided score. The Victorias  were not able to find a place for the  many   hits.  Coming to America.

TORONTO, July 22.���On account of  the flatly contradictory accounts of the  condition  of  affairs  in  regard  to  the  strike of the C.- P.  R.  trackmen," the  News decided to send a special correspondent over the main line from Toronto  to  Windsor,   Toronto   to   Ow<*n  Sound and Toronto to Montreal, in order to ascertain how things really stand.  Yesterday the News correspondent traveled, over  the  Windsor line  as  far as  Walkerville   Junction,   which   is   four  miles this side of Windsor, and found .  that whatever progress the strike may ,  be making in other parts of the sys- .  tern, on this division it has undoubtedly" !  fizzled-out.    The regular summer force  is   four   men   to   every   section   of. six ,  miles, which would mean that in the 37  sections between here and Walkerville ���  Junction, 148 men would be a full force  of trackmen.   The News ecorrespondent  saw by actual count 131 men at work  on the line, mowing, weeding, putting "  in ties and fixing culverts.   On only two "  sections  were  no  men  seen,  and   they  bore every evidence of recent attention,  the ties being well filled and the track  as clear from weeds as a well kept garden patch.    Ar, far as could be judged  the whole track was in first-class condition, no roughness being approached,  while the trains in which the News correspondent  traveled,   namely,   the   7:45  a. m. from Toronto and the 1:35 p. in. -  from Windsor, were on time almost to  the   minute   all   along   the   route.     By  watching  the  track  both  ways  it was  possible to,make a double check of-the  number of men actually at work in each  ���section and the result elicited the number to be 131.  TORONTO, Juiy 22.���General superintendent Timmerman of the C. P. R".  in his report.today on the strike situa- '  tfon says: "On the 20 sections between  Toronto and Owen Sound, there are 20  foremen and 03 trackmen. This is three  over the regular complement. On Mr.  Price's-division, which is known as the  O. & Q. division, there are only three  vacancies." Mr. Timmerman thinks it  is too bad that so many of the old men  are kept from going to work for the  glorification of men like president Wilson. "The class of men we have looking after our roadbed at present," continues Mr. Timmerman, "are all experienced men, and not weed cutters, as  stated by the opposition. A number of  these .men wore formerly employed by  the Grand Trunk. Our present condition is very gratifying and we have no  cause for complaint."  WILKESBARRE, Pa., July 22.���More  mines, with the aid of the United Mine  Workers, resumed operations in the  Wyoming valley today. Committees  from the striking stationary firemen  waited upon the superintendents of the  various coal companies and asked to be  reinstated.    At some of the mines the  _committees���were���told���that^tho^places .-  of the strikers were filled. At others  the names of the old firemen were taken  and the committees were told that if  their services were needed they would  be sent for. There seems to be no question but that this strike will be officially declared off tonight and that at  least 85 per cent of the strikers will be  back in their old places tomorrow, when  it: is expected there will be a general  resumption of mining operations.  'WILKESBARRE," July 22.���After a  two .months' strike the machinists employed by the Lehigh Valley have given  up the fight and are returning to work,  not in a body, but as individuals. About  40 men returned to work at the Caxton  shops today. It is thought that by tonight there will be a rush of applications for work. The GOO machinists  and car repairers at the Ashley shops  of the Central Railway of New Jersey  are still out, but a break in the strikers' ranks is expected at any time.  PITTSBURG, July 22.���The situation  of the strike today is practically the  same as on -Saturday, Wellsville and  McKeesport being points around which  the interest centers and any developments no doubt will emanate from these  points. The situation this morning  throughout Pittsburg and Allegheny in  the strike district was about the samo  as Saturday. Contrary to the expectations of many, no effort was made on  the part of any of the plants to run.  SCRANTON, Pa., July 22.���The striking boiler makers, machinists and foun-  drymen at the shops of the Delaware,  Lackawanna & Western railroad returned to work at the old rate of wages today, notice having been posted by tho  company following a decision of the men  to return if the 537 men who went on  strike eight weeks ago would be taken  back. Two men were discharged for  cause.  Won the Championship.  LONDON, July 22.���II. O. Blackstaff  of the Vesta Rowing Club won the Wing-  field sculls, which carry the title of  .amateur scullin<r champion of Great  Britain in a race over the Thames championship course today. Blackstaff defeated his competitors in the event, G.  Ashe and H. Cloutte, by two lengths.  C. V. Fox. winner of the Wingtiehl  sculls last year, did not defend his title  in this year's contest.

John McKane of Rossland, in an.interview piinted on the first page of today's Tribune, tells a,, plain, unvarnished  story of the mining situation at Rossland.   Mi*. McKane was for many years  *   a bank manager, and since coming to  Kootenay   has   had   every   opportunity  of-seeing how mines are manipulated;  suddenly   changed    from    undeveloped  prospects into companies with millions'  of capital in shares.    The story is one  that  goes  to  show  that,   in   many  instances, company mining as carried on  ' in British Columbia is a fraud on the  public;   but the  newspaper that would  make  ��uch   a  statement would   be  declared an anarchist by the newspapers  that are dominated by the foreign mine  managers,  who.   for  the  time,   are  attempting to control the politics of this  province. ^ Accordin-j to  these newspapers   ell   the  blame   for   failures   must  be saddled on the men who do the actual work in the mines.   Were a thor-  oiifh   investigation   made   by   disinterested  experts,  it would  be found that  no single mining venture in British Columbia has resulted in failure because  of the shiftlessness of the workins min-  eis or the wages paid them.    On the  other hand,.every failure can be traced  to one or more of the following causes:  Fraud   in   purchase;    mismanagement;  over-capitalization; decrease in ore values.    The story is an old one, but the  public   must  not  know   how.they   are  defrauded,  hence reports are  sent  out  attributing  the   failures  to  pay    dividends    to    unreasonable    demands    of  the   men  who   do  the actual  work   of  mininir.

The  trouble with  workingmen  is  that  they ignore the assistance of the legal  iraternity in their fights, nnd fights cannot be won nowadays without someone  getting   into   court.     The   whole   force  power of the provincial government was  brought to bear to prevent the fishermen from doing illegal acts, and as long  as tho game was carried on according  to the old rules, not a word was heard  of settlinrrr.   But once the fishermen began swearing out warrants for the arrest  of the  Japanese fishermen  for  obtaining licenses illegally, for the arrest of  provincial   constables   for  trespass,  for  the arrest, of cannerymen for violating  the Navigation Act. there was a sudden  stampede by the cannery owners for a  settlement.    The  fishermen,   no  doubt,  committed illegal acts;  but the illegal  acts they committed were trivial as compared with the conspiracy that the cannerymen entered into to violate the laws  of the  country:   first,   by illegally  importing thousands of Japanese; second,  securing the issuance of fraudulent naturalization papers-for them; third, procuring fishing licenses for men illegally  imported and fraudulently naturalized.  -Every   Japanese   fisherman   on   Fraser  river should be legally arrested, convicted, and imprisoned.    Such a lesson at  enforcement of law would do both the  cannerymen and the provincial government a power of good.  On the construction of the Arrowhead &  Kootenay railway In the Lardo district.

The law of public trusteeship '.which  New  Zealand  placed  upon  its  statute  hooks in 1S72, and has amended many-  times since then,,is without doubt one  of the most humanizing enactments in  the   history  of- world-wide- legislation.  Every  section,, .every  sub-section,   and  every clause is -entirely 'devoid of centripetal influence, and' wholly centrifugal  in its effect.;. ..T-heV m'jssiph of the.  act has been construcU^;ji'athei'. than  destructive,   unifying .'ihy.jyi-efereiice.-. to  rending asunder.    .When.sir,],Julius" Vo-  ger created the public trustee; he-never  dreamed that in 28 years an,Officer who  was only intended to be a cleric of records and a director of trust funds should  develop into the-best friend of ihe peo-  [,pie, safeguarding their interests during  seasons of sorrow, impotency and  disaster.   The functions of-this-sui geneus  [  official  can  be outlined .in  a  word  or  two,   andv.-yet   volumes '_ fipoii- volumes  might be writteiv^cdncerning them.'He  jiccepts-the-executiomof wills,  the ad-  [' ministration of intestacies and tlie performance  of : aijy,- and   all   diitics   eon-  , nected  with'tru'steeship.'    So  well   has  he estabhshed-himself in the confidence  of the financial  world  that European'"  ^frequently place" property in  his keep-  [(ing.v  The' present  aggregate   value  of  estates   held   by   public   trusteeship   In  New  Zealand   is   over - $11,000,000, .and  their number exceeds 3000.  7 -A summaryVpf the checks on the pow-  L*er of this marvelous man may conduce  to avbetter ;understandiii*T of his position.   He *has,to work in harmony with  a government  hoard,  composed  of  the  ^.colonial ..treasurer, the native minister,  the government insurance commissioner, the commissioner of taxes, tho solicitor general, the surveyor general, and  the public trustees.   These officials have  been chosen-with the greatest care by  Ji the legislature.    The two ministers are  among them, in order that the existing  1' administration may keep in touch with  [��� ,a ctv&artment ;whose worldn-js it is di-  ��� rectly responsible for. They never mako  an effort, to control  the. affairs .of. the.  office, however, realizing that to do so  would be to shako public confidence in  them arid it.   Further restraints on the  trustee are held by the'colonial treasurer, or any clerks of the treasury he  may empower to examine the books of  the  trust bureau.    And  of  course the  auditor general possesses the same authority-over this branch  that he does  in connection with other sections of the  civil service.     ;  People drawing up their last wills and  I* testaments have the right to name the  |/public.trustee   as their   sole   executor,  while the realty and personalty of those  k who die-intestate is always handed over  I' to him. When it becomes necessary for  the courts 'to'choose an  administrator  they invariably select the government's  appointee.    He  is  a ' corporation  sole,  1 and   consequently  his  office   never  be-  |' comes vacant, no matter how many in-  : cumbents_oLitJmay die,_r.esign- or_disap- -  pear.    l-lris relieves estates of the expense necessary.-to the election of a new  /trustee,    Then the public officer has 33  'agencies in all the large and small towns  iot the colony, special postoffice facilities, and the guarantee of the govern-  fcment, so that he can transact business  Twith   greater  ease  arid ��� efficiency  than  [any private person. His charges are all  [moderate, and made according to a published  scale,  being figured out  on  the  Jbasis of actual.expense.    In a hundred  (and one ways the trustee can be of assistance to those in troubled    He may  Istraigliten  out a poor widow's  entan-  [gled affairs, carry on a great businec.i  Ithat has been robbed of its manager by  Ideath and would suffer' loss or ruin if  (temporarily stopped, create public trusts  Jj-or cities or individuals, and direct the  filnancial affairs of those who are com-  [pelled by the strange vicissitudes of fortune to. neglect them for. a time.    This  iccommodating official may also assume  charge of some philanthropic trust,, and  |iid. succeeding generations along indi-  sated lines, or finance the estates of the  lentally.and the physically helpless.on  behalf   of.their  respective  heirs.     He  lias been known to accept the administration of property belonging to people  In far-away lands,  and to have taken  Jver the estates of those who were not  Qualified to handle them in a businesslike way: '- Public trusteeship pays four  |er cent on all amounts up to $15,000,  Jnd three and a half,per cent on sums  Ibove that, whether or not immediate  Investment is found for them.    Interest  las always been paid quarterly,  being  Jompoundecl  for   six  years,   and   reckoned   on .the  simple  scale   after   that,  [.'he state bears any and all losses that  [iay result from its selection of weak  ecurities or poor stocks.  The trustee's better judgment has not  leen curbed by the government. He is  ���Mowed to exercise the greatest kindli-  less and  consideration in all  transac-  lons.    While ca private official  cannot  lepart from tlie very letter of the document  under which  he acts,, his public  ���rother may take any steps that soem  lecessary  to   the  proper   execution   of  |hat the. creator  of a  trust  intended  have done or what he ought to have  Itended   to  have   done.

In such instances the trustee, after  consultation with the beneficiaries, pursues what he deems the best course regarding the disposition of the deceased's  properties. On each occasion John C.  Martin was called upon to sell: but a  rich man's estate, which . consisted  among other things of many personal  articles greatly prized by members of  the latter's family. Instead of auctioning off these heirlooms at trivial prices,  he placed'a value upon them, and allowed the heirs to buy them privately.  The deceased had. made'his will, never  "thinking that the public sale of certain  trinkets would be an injustice to his  relatives.  The trustee stepped in once where an  executor had already ueen appointed.  A manufacturer died, and left his will  without anyone to look after it, the administrator of his estate being- absent  in Europe. Even a week's cessation of  work, at the factory would have resulted  in enormous loss. Accordingly the public officer assumed control of the' deceased man's affairs, kept the plant running and subsequently handed it over  in perfect condition to the executor. In  cases where there are immediate heirs,  anxious to look after their own interests, the state does not meddle with  intestacies, nor does it ever do so until  the non-existence of a will has been  well established. Sometimes the last  testament is easily found, while those  benefiting by it are not. Every available means of locating them is exhausted before they arc given up for lost.  Some years ago ��30,000 was raised to  aid the sufferers from a mining calamity.' The money has been carefully managed by the public trustee. He pays out  a weekly allowance to each widow, and  a further allowance for each child under  a certain ago. Lump sums were granted  to beneficiaries of the fund who desire  to lift mortgages or straighten out their  affairs in other ways.  It often happens that the state - sets  aside a sum of money for the benefit of  an official's widow and children. Where  the exact disposition of the amount is  not stated the public trustee utilizes it  to, educate the sons and daughters, and  pffevifle theinas. .well as tlieir mother  with a comfortdpile,, if 'not luxurious,  living. In handling,the property of lunatics, twp things 'are kept in view, the  conservation ofiari' estate in order" that  it may be instantly- available in the  event of-the-owner's'recovery, and the  maintenance of'the wife and family during the patient's illiiess.   ,  Public trusteeship ''.has proven itself  an unqualified success ,in New Zealand,  and should be adopted by every progressive country within the confines of  tlie world.
