C, FRIDAY, JULY 26, 1901  FIVE CENTS  .MINE OWNERS' MEMORIAL  ADDRESSED TO THE GOVERNOR-  GENERAL-IN-COUNCIL.  A Document Dealing in the Condition  and Needs of the Mining Industry  -   i ���  of the Province.  ,    The Mine Owners' Association has had  ; 'two meetings at Nelson within a month.  The  members -'aro  very  close-mouthed  .    as to the proceedings had at these meetings.    The  first one  was  held  on  the  2Sth  of  June,   and   the  result; of  that  meeting is given rbclow.   It is published  exclusively this morning0 in The Trib-  ���'June, for the members of the association  are beginning to admit that The Tribune is the only newspaper in the province that is !a strictly impartial authority on the economic conditions at pres-  ' ent prevailing  in  Kootenay and  Yale.  The proceedings had at that meeting in  June were in 'the- shape of a Memorial  to His Excellency the Governor General  in Council.   It reads as follows:  TO HIS EXCELLENCY THE GOVERNOR GENERAL IN COUNCIL: This  memorial of tho British Columbia Mining Association, an organization duly  incorporated and formed under the laws  of the province of British Columbia, and its membership .the metal mining industry of the province, respectfully sets forth as follows:  That the province' of British Columbia  prior to the recent development of its'  metal mining industry had acquired n  population of only 65,000 whites.  During the past 10 years the growth  of this industry has afforded a rapidly  increasing annual .production which in  the year 1900, had reached a total of  S11.348.4S1.    .  ���.." Large amounts of Canadian and British capital have been invested in thic  new industry.  This rapid growth has stimulated numerous industries throughout the'province and the Dominion; lias brought the  physical,  geological,   and  mineralogica!  features .of the province to,the notice of  the world, and has been the chief factor  -   in increasing,its population to the-present figure of about L10.000 whites.  ��� ln  the  continent of  North  America!  4(|'he Cordilleras of the Rocky mountains'.  ��� after passing thr'ougli'j;M��xfc'6"'and tlie  United States, in their hdi'tliward course  enter the province of iaritish Columbia,  and pass through its entire length, 700  miles,   covering  the. entire 'width,   400  mile's:    From  these ' Cordilleras  within  Mexico and the United States have been  extracted   the   vast   stores   of   metallic  ..   wealth that .have enriched these countries and Europe.    There is no geological   reason  Svhy the  Rocky  mountains  should not be as prolific in mineral resources within the province of British  Columbia    as    within    the    '-countries  named;    therefore,    British    Columbia.  ''--measuring 700. miles in length and 40C  miles in ������width, and having an area of  '280,000 square miles, or 179,200,000 acres,  or. about 1630 acres'for each white inhabitant of the province, or 34 acres fo:  each white inhabitant of the Dominion  so far as is known is one vast minerai  field.   That this vast mineral field, witl  the exception of- a narrow strip  alon:  the Boundary line of the United States  ��� and a few isolated spots, elsewhere, is  ���entirely^undeveloped���and=even=unex���  pi oral..  The development of these resources  begun a few- years ago so auspiciously  has been brought to a practical standstill; and whereas a few years ago the  ���mountains were swarming with prospectors, today these pioneers of the mining, industry have nearly disappeared.  The flow of capital into the province  has been practically cut off; the metal  production is at present decreasing:  numbers of producing mines have closed  down, and,those operating have, with a  few; exceptions, ceased to pay dividends.  The working mines are struggling under  heavy burdens which are still accumulating each year. It is now frankly  admitted by mining men that the industry is prostrated in many mining divisions and; that its condition is rapidly  becomin**: worse.  This association has been reluptant to  make public these facts, hoping that  their realization by the communities immediately interested would lead to the  gradual removal of the evils that caused  the***., but it is, nt l?.st evident that  there is no chance of this ben*.**- realized,, and consequently any further con-  ee-alni'ent would be useless and detrimental to the, best ..interest of the country.  It is-believed that the only hope for  the industry and the communities interested lie's in wide and frank publicity  and .-officiaL.investigation. No other  course offers any hope of bringing about  the prompt- and radical reforms necessary to re-establish the industry in the  position it.- should occupy naturally.  Now, .-therefore.'the British Columbia  Mining-Association balls attention to the  fact that the, blighting of the industry  is not due' entirely to natural causes,  but mainly to unwise legislation. The  ore deposits of. British Columbia prom-  is�� to enual those found in the Rocky  .Mountains- elsewhere, but their development and utilization are .serious]*' retarded 1*7 br.rt !r.v/s.  In making these statements it is clearly recognized (that the growth of metal  mining, just now checked, has suffered  ���from .the infantile diseases that affect  the industr;*- in other minin--- regions' of  the world, to-wit: The ordinary elements of chance in the behaviour of ore  deposits in new fields; the difficulties of  -pioneer work in new regions; over valuation of prospective mines; stock swind  les; bad management, etc., etc. Such  evils, which always appear during the  early growth of the mining industry,  have been no worse in British Columbia  than in other mining regions of the  world, and should gradually lessen and  disappear as the industry becomes established and. permanent. These evils,  however, together with the tendency to  ascribe to each individual failure some  natural cause, have blinded the public  to the great and overwhelming burdens  resulting from legislative enactments.  With the improvement of the other conditions unfavorable to the industry during the past few years, this artificial  burden has become more clearly recognized as the main cause of the present  depressed condition, and it is believed  unless radical relief is given at. an early  day the industry will with the exception  of some rich deposits here and there,  be surely crushed out eventually.  The total-weight of the legislative  burdens bearing so heavily on the industry can only be properly seen by  viewing them in the aggregate, and considering not only those that may be  easily cured but also those which at  the present time seem permanently established. It is recognized, for instance,*  that the mining industry must bear its  fair share of the reasonable cost of government, and that it is not within the  power cf the Dominion government to  open the United States lead market to  the product of our lead mines unless it  become possible in the future by some  form of reciprocity, to be arranged for  by the representatives of both countries.  The need for radical-relief to the industry where it is possible, however, is apparent from the following summary of  the artificial burdens now imposed:  ; PUOVlN>*l.'\L    TAXATION.

Hence the  above enormous taxation is saddled upon a pioneer population so small that  if collected in one spot it would consti-  -tute a town of only ordinary size, say  one-half the size of Toronto, and one-  third that of Montreal.

Owing to the imecual distribution of  present taxation it is notorious thai  mining districts bear an excessive proportion of the-load, making the per  capita, .for. .them-more''.than the above  amount. The above .taxation is shifted  mainly to the ultimate producers. If  divided among the five industries; according to their relative importance,  roughly indicated by such statistics of  production and exports ;as exist, the  probable share carried by each is:  Industry.

Balance   left   for   expenses   and  profit (?) $S,77G,20fl  As a matter of fact the unequal distribution mentioned makes the real load  much in excess of this 22.7 per cent.  It is also evident that the other four  industries shift :���- considerable portion  of their taxes on to mining through the  supplies which they furnish to it. Thus  the actual load is considerably in excess  of the above fiirure.  The results of the above excessive taxation show themselves in mining communities in the form of costs of living,  in business and in mining operations,  which, in view of their distance from  supplies, are very excessive. This is  notorious and is the subject of general"  complaint. Such items as the following  list bear directly on the mines, and are  thereby clearly recognized, while the  others reach them in innumerable ways  through the gradual shifting of taxation  on to the ultimate producers.  1. Customs duties, the effect of which  is to increase running expenses by an  amount which, as nearly as can be estimated, is about 12 per cent.  2.-Tho two per cent tax imposed" on.,  the output of mines. *. The effect of  this tax is to appropriate six per cent  of the net profits on ore of medium  grade, increasing to 12 per cent and upwards on ore of low grade. This prevents the extension of mining to low  grade ores, and has led to the practical  suspension of further investments of  capital in that direction. Such low  grade ores exist in large quantities in  the province, and experience in other  regions has shown that they constitute  the most powerful factor in establishing  a mining industry upon a permanent  basis.  3. Excessive fees payable on the incorporation or registration of mining  companies.  4. Excessive and vexatious fees for  boiler inspection.  And several other matters, such as  tho fees payable for the registration of  land titles, the high rates charged in  connection with the recording of min-  The Last Payment on the Bond Falls  Due on the Twentieth of  Next Month.  J. Frank Collom is steadily making  a mine out of the Speculator, group on  Springer creek, and the indications are  that it will be one of the biggest properties in the Slocan. Since he'has had  the bond upon the property!1 for his syndicate Mr. Collom has spent upwards of  $40,000 in its development, and it haSj  opened up so well that. there is now  very little doubt but that the syndicate  will complete the purchase on the 20th  of next month by the payment of the  balance upon the bond of- $55,000. There  are two full-sized claims and two fractions in the Speculator group, which are  located on the north fork of Springer'  creek. The work done upon the property has demonstrated that it has two  good strong ledges running through it,  much of the ore from which gives remarkably Jhigh values in silver. That,  the values indicated by the assays, will  be maintained when'the property is in  shape to make large shipments is not  to be supposed, as some' of it runs away  up in the hundreds of ounces in silver,  but there* is every reason to believe that,  the Speculator will be the producer of-  some of the highest grade ore on the-  creek, which is noted 'for its high grade  properties. The Speculator will require  to be worked by shafts and work upon  it has in a measure been" delayed by  reason of the non-arrival of a hoisting  plant, which as been tied up-in one of  the strikes on the other side of the-  line.  - On what is known as the No. 1 vein  a tunnel has been run in for 250 feet,  all of "which is said to be more or less  in ore. Some 200 feet in from the mouth  of this tunnel a winze has been sunk to a  depth of 100 feet. At the bottom of this'  winze a drift' has been run for 50 feet,  in which the ore body which had been  sunk on in the winze is said to have very  greatly improved. Where this vein has  been cross-cut it has been proven to be  from 25 to 30 feet. 'The whole of the  ledge is, mineralized, but along one of  the walls is a very rich paystreak. The  ore in this ledge so far as it has been  developed appears to be very much  mixed, some of it carrying- the.richest  values in the mine, and in other portions of it the ore carries as much as  30 and 40 per cent-lead. From the bottom on the winze which has been sunk on  the Ncv'l ledge a cross-cut has been run  for 9G feet, which cuts the No. 2 vein.  This vein carries-a- dry * ore.-which is  ofvlOO ounces silver, and is generally  supposed to be the Arlington vein. It  has been further opened up by a 900-  foot tunnel, run in through the upper  end of the Speculator, through the Speculator- Fractional, and into the Mineral  mountain. :This vein is said,to average  25 feet in width and in one place where  it has been cross-cut it has been found  to be 60 feet wide. Much of the worli  done upon the Speculator has been unr  der the personal supervision of W. Ml  Thomlinson, the'present superintendent  at the property. ��� :  admiral. In his desire to escape all  criticism on the point of bias, secretary  Long felt that these were reasons sufficient for looking out for new material  and for some man who was absolutely  disassociated from the great controversy  in any phase. Late this afternoon he  believed he had found such an officer in  the. person of captain Sam C. Lemley,  the judge advocate general of the navy,  a selection calculated because of the  rank of the officer to constitute a.full  recognition of the dignity and importance of the forthcoming court of inquiry. While it cannot be said that the  matter is absolutely settled, secretary  Long went so far as to ask Lemley if  he felt free to accept the assignment if  it were offered to him, and it is believed that captain iLemley will decide  to answer in the affirmative. Captain  Lemley- has * known j both men, Schley  better than Sampson, perhaps. He was  one of Schley's personal friends when  he (Lemley) was in' active line of service. He accompanied Schley on the  famous Greely relief ^expedition and rendered valuable service to, him on that  occasion, which service the senior oflir-  cer recognized. On.the other hand cap-;  tain Lemley has known Sampson officially in the navy department when the  admiral was at the?, head of the ordnance - -bureau and;, they were thus  thrown.into close contact in ���*. business  point of view for ��� several years.  TELEGRAMS IN BRIEF FORM  FROM   VARIOUS   QUARTERS   OF  THE  GLOBE.  Interesting Occurrences of Yesterday  Condensed and Printed in a  General Way.  Bob Nelson, who has charge of the  development on the Juno property, was  in town yesterday. He says he has about  125 feet more to go with the 600-foot  cross-cut which is being run to catch  the vein, but he is now in very. hard  rock and is not making more than, two  feet per day. The rock he. is now in  breaks well, but it requires good hard  work to get the drills into it. The present cross-cut will give the owners of  the Juno a vertical depth of 275 feet  on the vein, but the depth on the dip  will be very much -rreater.  "William as a Peacemaker.  LONDON, July 25.-PThe; rumor as to  early peace negotiations which has pervaded the house of commons for some  days, says the Daily Express, has taken  the more- definite form that emperor  William is soon to assume the role of  peacemaker. Mr. Kruger and his advisers are represented as having empowered the kaiser to act for tho Boers, and  he is considered willing to take the initiative in order to popularize himself  with the German people, who disapprove  his friendship for Great Britain.

The Schley, Investigation.  WASHINGTON,' July 25..rf-Secretary  Long announced this morning that he  had selected Admiral Dewey,and rear  admirals S. Kimberly and Benham as  members of the Schley court of inquiry. The precept to the court has not  yet been published.  All day secretary Long was engrossed  in the consideration of the details of  the court, seeking particularly for a  suitable judge advocate, realizing that  upon this officer would devolve the  largest measure of responsibility for the  conduct of the inquiry to a successful  issue. It was thought that such a man  had been found in the person of commander John E. Pillsbury, a sailor who  hr..** the brightest reputation professionally, and is, moreover, regarded as  of a judicial temperament. In fact, it  was announced early in the day at the  department that he had been selected  for the place. But later, on more mature consideration, his name was abandoned. It was recalled that as commander of the dynamite cruiser Vesuvius he had served upder Sampson off  Santiago, and moreover as equipment officer of the Boston navy yard and was  now again a subordinate of the same  ��� The writs were'issued yesterday in  the cases of Regis Robitaille vs. Arehi;  bald -Victor Mason, superintendent of  the Nelson Electric Tramway Company,  =and=Charles^WriYoUng:-=3rovincial=con=  stable. .

When the tramway superintendent and  the police officer went to recover the  property in question Robitaille refused  to give it up. -Asa result he was placed  under arrest and as he did not take  kindly to this procedure the police olllcer thought it necessary to place tlie  hiindcuffs upon him. He was tried before stipendiary, magistrate Crease, who  set him at liberty, as he held'tliat the  floats in question did not come within  the meaning of the section of the criminal code under which the prosecution  was  laid.  Robitaille' now claims that he lias  suffered damages to the exte*rit"bf $S00,  wliich amount he would like to get  out of Mr. Mason of the tramway company, and of Mr. Young, the provincial  police officer, and_ from the summons  issued' in the case it is apparent that  he is not the least,particular which of  the two named puts up the amount  required to restore -to him the position  which he had in stieijety before his arrest upon the charge of refusing to deliver to the owners property illegally  in his possession. Of the amount claimed by Robitaille, the sum of $800 probably represents the injury done to his  feelings by reason of his arrest. Tho  remaining $G6 is made up of $50 as the  charges of his lawyer who defended  him upon his trial before the stipendiary  magistrate, three days' time at $4 per  day for time which lie lost in connection with the hearing of the charge  against himself, and another day at $1  for time lost while under arrest and  in jail awaiting bail.  The only things wliich stand between  Mr. Robitaille and the securing of.tlie  amount claimed are the tramway company, which will probably defend tlie  action of its superintendent, and the  attorney general's department, which  may be counted upon to defend the action of the police officer, otherwise he  bas plain sailing.

A    wave   of  vrionism swept over Nelson a year ago,  '���wnen  building operations were unusu-  ' ally '���ris!*:.   Hundred** of mechanics and  laboicrs were employed, and all the dif7  lercnt    trrdes    *'*ere    organized    into  unions.    Now that building operations  havo practically ceased, the members of  th'e   different  union1*   have  had   to   go  elsewhere fo- employment, leaving some  cf-t!*e unions with not dough members  to form a quorum, and others with so  few members that factional fights have  broken out as to who will hold the of-'  fices of honor and occupy the seats of  trust in the labor council.   What is hap-  "no-".i**g  i*i  Nelson  in   this  respect has  happened in hundreds of other places;  and will continue to- happen.    Nelson  has had no end of societies and organi-'  zations  of "one kind and  another, and  how many of them are in existence today?   So with its trade unions.   There  arc but three trades, miners, carpenters,  and printers, with a membership sufficiently large to  keep up  a union permanently.   The others, until their membership   can  be retained   at  twice  the  number required' for a quorum, should  return their charters and affiliate with  unions   in   the   nearest   city   that   has  permanent unions.   This advice may not  meet with the approval of local labor  leaders, but it will  meet with the approval of all men who have had practical   experience   as   members   of   labor  union0.    ,  Nothing is so disappointing  to tho angler as to return  home after a day's fishing  Vith~an~empty c7eel~You  may make elaborate preparations and take apparently everything  that Is necessary, rod, line, reel, casts,  flies, troll, bait, net and gaff, hut unless  they are ' made of the right stuff. it is  money thrown away.

The red  " rag was waved;so continuously before  "'the men that' a' strike had to come.  k " Tho Gtrike was brought about to satis-  "fy the real 'agitators' and stock job-  ".bers in London, and it is being used  " as a lever to bear the share market  "]there, to serve the ends of the cor-.

" Stock jobbing, pure and simple, has  " given mining in British Columbia a  ".black eye.

There ic an element in Nelson and  in the Mine Owners' Association who  arc opposed to the effort that is being  made to build a lead refinery in British  Columbia. They claim the refinery  "honld '*? l**:i!t by the government or  by somo one other than the owners  of tho Trail smelter, and they have even  rtonc co far as to write letters to the  members cf the Don: in ion government  advising them to discourage private  capital fiom undertaking the enterprise.

R C  placed itself on record ��>s in favor of  the refinery being built at once by any  company with sufficient capital to successfully carry on the industry, which  was (-"linently sensible.  No event would bring more outsiders  from a distance to Nelson than the regatta of the North Pacific Coast Rowing Association. This year the regatta  is being held on Shawnigan lake, thirty-  odd miles or.t from Victoria on'the Es-  ru'malt & Nanaimo railway, and the  following boat clubs are represented:  Poitland, Victoria, Vancouver.,and Nelson. An effort is", being made to get  the regatta for Nelson next year, and it  may be successful. The Nelson Boating  Club has a crew at Shawnigan lake, and  tomorrow they will contest in the junior four race. If they win, nothing  will be too good for them when they return; but if they win both the race and  the regatta meeting, then they can have  the freedom of the city for at least a  The Mine Owners' Association has  drawn up a "Memorial to His Excellency the Governor General in Council,"  in which is recited all the troubles of  the association and some troubles that  are not of the association's. The burden of- the plaint' is that-taxation���pro-  =vincial=and^Dominion���is^so^excessive^  that the mining industry in British Columbia is being strangled. The text  of the Memorial is printed in full in  today's Tribune. This will enable the  people of Kootenay and Yale to judge  of the questions at issue for themselves.  In the opinion of The Tribune, un-  proven contentions so sandwiched  between statements of fact that the  Memorial will not have the weight at  Ott^ya that it would have had had the  truth been strictly adhered to.  A Pauper Prince  VIENNA, July 24.���Not only has baron Wall burg had all his household furniture and effects seized and sold at  public auction for the benefit of his  creditors, but he, his wife and their  six choldren have become inmates of  the poorhouse at Pesth, and. in spite of  their membership in-the imperial family, figure today on the municipal registers of the Hungarian capital as paupers, depen'dent on public charity. The;  baron is the son of the late archduke  Ernest by his actress wife, who was  created baroness Wallburg on his marriage. This marriage was regarded in  Austria as morganatic, and as such the  baron was debarred from inheriting any  of the enormous wealth of his father,  the archduke. The latter, however,  made his home in Hungary, where most  of his property was situated, and, according to Hungarian laws, all marriages are equal, and archduke Ernest's  son was, therefore, entitled not only to  his royal honors, but likewise to a considerable share of his property. This  the imperial family declined to admit,  and consequently the baron began legal  proceedings, not for any recognition as  a royal prince, but for tlie share of his  father's property, to which he was entitled by Hungarian law, Owing to this  the emperor cut off tlio small allowance  which lie had been paying him, thereby  reducing the hnron aiid his children to  de.-*t:t'.:tio::. When the emucror was  last In PeBth the baron in vain sought  audience of him, and at length threw a  petition into tho imperial carriage, be- j  ing in consequence thereof arrested. He  was, however, released after a few hours'  detention. His wife is a Woman of humble orisin.  A Cairo Hasheesh Joint.  A German physician describes in a  medical journal his visit to a. den of  hasheesh smokers in Cairo. His guide  was a donkey boy, who could speak  German. In a dark and dirty alley they  came to a lighted doorway. Entering,  they passed through a room filled with  men playing dominoes, to the smoking,,  room. "Here," says the explorer, "we  were welcomed like old acquaintances.  The room was filled with smoke of peculiar aromatic odor and the smokers  were in a very happy mood. On the  walls were Arabic inscriptions and pictures of European beauties. In one corner was a stone bearing a mass of glowing coals. A man cut up some tobacco,  another filled a clay pipe bowl with it,  a third bit off little pieces of brown  hasheesh paste and laid them on the  tobacco, a fourth added some glowing  coals and attached the bowl to a nai*-  ghileh, or water pipe, which he then  handed to his neighbor. The pipe passed from mouth to mouth, each man taking a few whiffs and expelling, the smoke  from nose to mouth." The German physician declined the proffered pipe and  ordered coffee. All the emokers talked  and laughed incessantly. Most of them  were young or middle-aged men. Suddenly an elderly man rose to his feet  and stood staring at the floor, with a  vacuous smile. He was a hasheesh  wreck, ah imbecile. "He is a philosopher," said one of the others, and a  general laugh followed. . The German  visitors did not stay long. Their guide  told them that the pipe would circulate  until midnight, after which the smokers would fall into deep sleep.  ^jtf��^��.��MG&A����,*lWMMfcM��&i^  ^^SC&cuw^^  f. ��-yiv iViAaa'fti  yBr-^tS'-tag*-ii8*Tia&*5IE*-i5ft'-w*-i?'^* w*���uB'*-S*���Si'* Si * ���Si'*iri*   fttih   00-00 -00-  ^A'f*'0^'00'00'00'00'00'00'00'00'00'00'00'00'00'0W0'00~1^}'    ^.*S?JS��?.  h LADIES' SUNSHADES 8  W AT HALF PRICE.

Saving's Bank Branch  OOBBKNT BATK OF INTEREST PAID,  SIEGE OF PEKIN ROMANCE  Reward of a Dashing Lieutenant.  Blood and fire, long-drawn-out horror  and suspense, famine and fear of death  ���these and many other terrors shadowed'the historic siege of Pekin, a-year  ago.    A   ghastly   atmosphere   for   romance to hlossom in���yet, as has long  been surmised hy many wise singers of  songs and tellers of tales, romance has  a way  of  doing  that  very  thing.    So  it  happened   that  while  the  group   of  young    American.; women ��� under    the  charge of United  States minister Conger were suffering thoseoften-descrihed  days of mental torture and bodily privation,   they  were   also,   in  the  most  natural   way   in  the   world,   falling   in  love.   The romance of Miss Mary Con-  dit-Smith, sister of Mrs. Leonard Wood,  who -was  one of the  besieged  colony,  and who has since become" a bride, is  one instance.    Now conies the news of  the betrothal of Miss Laura Conger, eld-  daughter of Mr. Conger, and, before.affliction' fell  upon  it,   the  belle  of the  United  States legation  in Pekin.'   The  young man who was fortunate .enough  to form, one of the relief expedition and  to play a hero's part in the eyes of the  rescued  Americans, .and  who has  now  reaped so rich a reward, is lieutenant  Fred B. Buchan of Troop K, Third cavalry, one of the fighting young soldiers  whom the country sent to China.    It is  believed   that  the   wedding  will    take  place  at an early  date,., for  lieutenant  Buchan  has; all  the traditional  impatience of lovers, and  Miss Conger,  in  spite of her all-to-close observation of  the horrors of war, thinks nothing can  be more desirable than to be a soldier's  bride.;. The  secret  has   been; kept  for  .   ��� a year, but since the recent announcement of the engagement the details of  .the pretty  story have leaked  out one  ,'one.    The time was ripe for heroes  .'"'when lieutenant Buchan first Hashed his  , sword in Miss Conger's delighted sight.  Week after week the distressed foreigners had huddled .within  their ���insecure  shelter.   Day by day slaughter ��� fire and  'Quillets became more and more familiar  spectacles'. iBoxer horrors -were- as common  as  summer  showers:    Daily  the  specter of death'strode hearer. The food  , supply was practically gone, hope was  dying and communication with home or  with  any part of the  world  had  Long  been   impossible.  - So   familiar,   indaod,  had the thought of death become that it  seemed far less horrible than the possibility   of   capture   by  the   Boxers.     To  avert all chance of this one unspeakable horror the women of the colony were  daily schooled  in methods  of suicide,  that  they  misht  die  rather   than   fall  victims to the brutes from whom they  could expect no mercy.    And the strain  of   this   horrible   situation   had   beg.m  months before the siege actually set in.  "I tell you, they (all hate us," Laura  Conger  wrote  home  some weeks   pre-  ; yjous, "and'would be glad to see every  ���white uerson out of China."  Then, one heaven-sent day, came the  rescue party, and, well to the front of  jt, a tall,  fearless figure of a certain  young lieutenant.

The Congers have a special reason to delight in the affair, as they regard it in the light of a compensation  to Laura for a tragedy which she has  already   suffered.     Miss   Conger   is   29  years old, tall, graceful, fair-haired, a  singularly gracious and lovely girl. But  the sad look that you will sometimes  notice iri~ her eyes is the result of an  unfortunate marriage which she made  as a young girl.   Her husband, George  Londrum,   whom she  had  loved  devotedly, proved altogether unworthy, and  the  marriage  turned  out a  deplorable  mistake.'    After several   years  of  misery,   therefore,  the  girl   secured   a   divorce  and  the right to- return  to  her  maiden name.-   Since then she has lived  with her own family.    George Londrom  enlisted  during the  Spanish  war,  was  wounded and died in a southern hospital.   Wherever she has been, Laura Conger has been regarded as a brilliantly  accomplished   woman.    She   has   been  froni childhood something of a. mathematical   urodigy   and   was   for   several  years head bookkeeper in the Iowa state  treasurer's office.   She is a close friend  and  companion of her  father and  accompanied him on his last trip to.Brazil, when he was minister to that country.    In Des Moines, where the engagement was announced, Miss Conger was  very popular and the announcement of  her happiness has been followed by a  chorus of congratulations.

Whilo  not actually engaged in obeying the orders of his superiors, his only thought  peemecl to be the succor of the women  of the legation. And such comfort as  one young soldier could give them lieutenant Buchan saw to it that they  promptly had. Lieutenant Buchan is a  Kansan, His father is W, J. Buchan,  a well-known lawyer and politician cf  Kansas City. But Frederick Buchan hud  never a fancy for the dusty stillness of  a lawyer's office. Kansas is a state of  dauntless men, and young Buchan's particular hero happened to be a doughty  little man of the name of Funston, who  )ias since become famous as a general.  In Funston's footsteps, therefore, he was  determined to tread. And his hei/oic  conduct at the siege of Pekin was the  . flrst step toward that career. Miss Cogger was not the only American who admired the lieutenant's bravery. And no,  when the horrors of war had subsided  somewhat and a few; wjeeks of comparative quiet having "made a nearer acquaintance possible between the two,  lieutenant Buchan asked for Mr. and  Mrs. Conger's sanction to the engagement. It was cordially given. Laura  Conger's friends now laughingly relate  how promptly she recovered from the  hardships of the siege as soon as she  had met and known lieutenant Buchan,  for it was a love-at-flrst-sight affair, and  file young people did not confide their  ^ec-'gt at first. Indeed, Miss Conger's  raditiflt, manner was noticed by her own  ���iamiiYj who attributed it to the fact  jthat she had been relieved from hunger. " is not strong," wrote minister Conger abjjtijt this time, "but much  ���j-ettej* than when the trouble began.  Horse meat and rice was the diet she  needed," Which was, of cpurse, simply  -jr. Quaint instance of parental humor.  "Both the Buchans and the Congers are  delighted with the engagement, and interchange of family felicitations is now  well under way] Minister Conner  stopped at Kansas City recently on his  -yay to visit his brother in Arizona be-  fWP sa.iling on the 15th from Sn.n Fran-  cistw for China, and he visited the Buchan family at the same time. Miss  Conger paid her first visit to the family  ,of,hor betrothed soon after her return  from China in May, when she spent  several days   at the   Buchan   summer  WIS HAVK  THK BEST  FLIES  AND   THE  BEST LEADERS  MADE.

All but Two of the Nineteen Lots Sold  Were Bid in at an Advance  Above the Upset.  Charles A. Waterman returned from New  Denver last evening where he conducted  a very successful sale of the government  town lots which had been sold at the first  salo of-*lots in the government townsite,  but the bidders of which had neglected  to complete their purchases. There were  all told 4S lots offered for sale, the upset  price of which aggregated $S400. Upon a  number of them the original purchasers  had placed improvements, the value of  which the auctioneer appraised at $11,760.  There were just nineteen lots sold, and  the prices realized show that no' hardship  was worked on the original purchasers,  who were compelled by the sale to buy  in for the second time the same lots, as  the prices realized yesterday were in many  instances loss than one-third of the prices  paid at the original sale, so that those:  who purchased in the first instance and  lost their first payment in the end got their  lots cheaper than ���; those who made all  their-payments due under the first sale.  The lots were all offered with an upset  price of $100, and the terms of the sale  were that no bid of less than $5 would be  considered. Of the nineteen lots sold all  but two were bid in at $5 advance on the  upset price, and with but one or two ex-.  ceptions the persons who had the improvements upon the lots bid the lots in. The  provincial revenue will be swelled by $2193  as a result, of yesterday's sale. The purchasers were:  Gething-   &   Henderson,   lots   1   and   2,  block G, $105,each.   '���..

Much has bei-n written, in the press of  the United States and Canada concerning Edward O'Brien, the man who now  awaits the death sentence in Dawfon upon  charge of murder. Notice was first directed to the case of O'Brien by reason nf the  heavy expense Incurred by the Canadian  government in the fastening of the crinio  of murder upen him, it boing g-merally  known that the conviction of this raur-  ���dcrer in the fnr north was not secured until an expenditure amounting up into the  hundred thousands had been incurred.  This was cited all through the press of  the'United States as an evidence of th"*  thorough manner In -v,"Ch the criminal  law of the Dominion is administered. It  now transpir-is, howei'e.-, that O'Brien is  none other, than the celebrated '"E-rstoa"  O'Brien.r who is known from one end of  the Dominion to the other as an old tun--  sprinter.  Eighteen years ago O'Brien was a  resident o*; Ottwa. Ho was a bnckiayi*.-  by trade.

OPPRESSIVE   LEGISLATION.  1. Eight hour law, the effect of which  has been to increase the* cost of underground labor by about 16 per cent, which  was passed by the provincial government during the last two days of a  session; without any previous notice to  the general public, the mine managers  or the miners themselves.  2. Severe struggles between capital  and labor originating through the eight  hour law. These struggles accompanying the decline of the industry have  changed, the former friendly relations  to class antagonism, which leads to incessant urging of class legislation dangerous to the industry and communities  dependent thereon.  3. Extension of the eight hour, lavFto ���  certain surface employes.  4. Unreasonable demands by the provincial government for information concerning private business for alleged statistical   purposes.    .?.'���  5. Unwise technical provisions In  Mines Inspection Act, one instance-of  which is the new code of signals for  shaft hoisting. This unnecessary interference with the most delicate and dangerous technical operation of mining  was not asked for by'anyone or . justified on any grounds, and was framed by  parties not practically acquainted with  mining. It endangers life and restricts  the-hoisting capacity of mines and was  passed against the official protest of this  association.  6. The steady increase of taxation and  the continued urging of oppressive legislation so that mining capital is kept  in constant apprehension and uncertainty as to further burdens.  7. The provincial "Master and Servant  Act," which practically prohibits the  employment of labor in any other province, notwithstanding the fact that labor for a new and unpopulated province  must come from elsewhere.  8. The Dominion "Alien Act," prohibiting the engagement of labor in the  United States, notwithstanding the fact  that Canada hasonly a small supply  of skilled miners and that the men required for developing the mining industry therefore must come mainly' from  the mining regions of the United States.  ''���-���   UNITED STATES-CUSTOMS.  .    United. States   tariff   duties   on   lead  in  ores  and   bullion,   thereby  shutting  off the United States market for this  product.  We call attention to the fact that the  sum total of these artificial burdens,  due to human enactment, is not equaled  in any mining region of the world.  In individual capacity, and as an association, we have repeatedly informed  the provincial government of our distress and petitioned for relief. These  requests, together with those for a commission to investigate the industry have  ���HitlTefto'per^  ignored. So far, from having, any prospect of relief every session of the legislature sees new additions to the load,  and still more severe.legislation is being- ursed.  Generally speaking, there is little hope  for proper security for investors in British Columbia mines until this policy is  changed and radical measures for relief  adopted.  We beg to record our appreciation of  the fact that the special difficulties affecting the silver-lead industry, recently  laid before the Dominion government,  were by it afforded a' measure of relief, and trust that the present petition  will receive no less favorable consideration.  Your memorialists therefore humbly  pray that, in,'view of the vast sums of  Canadian aiid British capital now involved, the 'very existence of which is  imperiled,, a royal commission be appointed to inquire into the conditions  set forth herein with a view to recommending measures for relieving the mining inflhstry of British Columbia from  many grievances complained of.  The Sheriff Was Eight  The last Issue of the Monetary Times  contains the decision of the Ontario courts  upon a question as to whether the sheriff  could seize the proceeds of a bank check,,  which had been placed on the bank counter  and appropriated-'by the sheriff's officer  before the execu'fibn debtor could get his  hands upon it.i The case came up in Toronto. The debtor Called in at the branch  of the Bank of Montreal and handed in a  check for payment.'amounting to $63. The  teller in the bank laid tho amount the  check called for on.fth'e' counter in front  of the debtor, but "before he could get his .  hands upon it the sheriff's officer had it  in his possession.
