C, WEDNESDAY, JULY 31, 1901  FIVE CENTS  BUSINESS AT A STANDSTILL  SAN FRANCISCO LABOR TROUBLES  REACH A CRISIS.  Fifteen Thousand Men Are Affected-  Amalgamated Association Strike  Still Unsettled.  SAN FRANCISCO, July 30��� The labor  trouble in this city reached a crisis today. Maritime, traffic and labor along  .shore is nearly at a standstill, and industries are almost totally paralysed.  The order for a general walk-out in the  City Front Federation, which comprises  14 unions and organizations with a full  membership of about 15,000, was -n.ade  effective this morning. Three thousand  men are employed at sea or in other  cities and the strike order does not apply to them until they return to. San  Francisco. Twelve thousand meu obeyed the order today.. When the order to  walk out went into effect all the big  shipping companies, with one exception,  were left without a union man.  SAN FRANCISCO, July 30.���Owing to  the strike of the Water Front Federation, which was inaugurated today, the  business section of the city is completely  tied up and indications are that business stagnation will ensue. Although  a large "number of men were hired to  fill the places of the strikers, little merchandise has been ' mo'ed. No disturbances have been; reported.  The labor troubles in this city reached  their culmination last, night, when the  City Front Federation ordered a general strike on the docks of San Francisco, Oakland, Mission Rock and Port  Costa, to go into effect this morning.  The resolution to strike, which received  the unanimous indorsement of every;  delegate to cthe convention.: was shovt  but its effect will 'be to cause, such a  paralysis of shipping business iri San  Francisco .as1 has not been -known- before. It reads-as1 fallows: ;i -The full  membership of the. City Front Federation refuses ��� to work at the docks of  San Francisco, Oakland, Port Costa and  Mission Rock. The'steamers Bonitaand  Walla Walla, with mails and passengers  now in the stream, will be allowed to go  to sea."   ,    .... ��� ',Xx ������-���������' x-7  The meeting of the federated -boards:  was a long one,1 and there-was Tiuuch  heated argument, but -when the re'splu-  ' tion came to-a-vote; every 'delegate pres?  ent voted in favor of-the strike. ' The;  following were represented, comprising  all the workers on the. water front:  "Sailors' Union of the Pacific/four local,  unions'of 'longshoremen, marine men,  brotherhood of teamsters, ship "and  steamboat joiners, porters, packers,  warehousemen, shipping clerks, pile  drivers arid bridge builders, hoisting engineers," steam and hot water fitters and  coal teamsters. This action, which is  a direct outcome of the lockout of the  teamsters, will have for its immediate  effect the cessation of all labor in and  around the great docks about San Francisco, bay. The Sand. Teamsters' Union  and the Oakland Teamsters' Union also  ordered a strike. This will make a total  of 25,000 union workers who have  stopped their labors, divided as follows:  City Front Federation, comprising 14  organizations, 15,000 men; machinists  and ironworkers, 7000; cooks and Avait-  ers, 1500; sand teamsters, 600; Oakland  =teamsters,=1000.=The=tie-up=wilH*e=com-=  plete if the plans of the labor unions  are successful. They hope to stop the  loading and even to prevent the moving of ships that are now almost ready  for departure. Unless the proprietors  and managers are able to secure sufficient non-union men to load and man  their vessels the strike will practically  mean the closing of the port and the  suspension of business in the wholesale  and manufacturing sections of San  Francisco and Oakland. Two non-union  teamsters fired into a body of strikers  this afternoon. One man was wounded,  but not seriously.    The shooters were  'arrested.    They claim to have fired in  self-defense. '  The Steel Workers..,  PITTSBURG, July 30.���Disappointment and apprehension pervade tho air  of Pittsburg tonight because of the failure of the executive board of the Amalgamated Association of Iron. Steel and  Tin Workers to ratify the peace proposals arranged at the conference in  New York last Saturday between the  national officers of. the Amalgamated  Association and Messrs. Morgan, Gary  and Schwab, representing the United  States Steel Corporation. The members  gathered at the general offices of the  Amalgamated Association early in the  morning and at 9:30 o'clock were called  to order by president Shaffer. Those  present, in addition to officials of the  board, were J. Bischof, former president  of the association and now a member of  the Ohio board' of arbitration, and M.  M. Garland, also an ex-president of the  organization. When the meeting war-  opened all but the conferees were requested to leave. The discussion started after president Shaffer had gor.e  over the details of the conference he  had had with Mr. Morgan and president  Schwab in New York. Secretary Williams read the report of the conference  which he had prepared and also tiie  propositions that had been made by  the officials of the United States Steel  Corporation. At the close of the dny's  session the members of the board slipped  away to their respective homes, until  no one was left at headquarters but  president Shaffer and secretary Williams.   They at first refused to give any  information, but finally president Shaffer volunteered the statement that an  adjournment had been taken until tomorrow. Further than this he would  say nothing, and admitted that e-'ei!  the announcement of adjournment wan  more than he should have said. Secretary Williams said matters were in such  a condition that nothing could be made  public.  Narrow Escape of a Publisher.  LONDON, July 30.���The printer and  publisher of the Daily Mail of this city  had a narrow escape today from being  ordered to appear at the bar of the  house of commons on Thursjlay next as  the result of observations iijjnde in connection with the war secretary's (Mr.  Broderick) boycott of thaw newspaper  on account of African disclosures. The  Daily Mail this morning characterizes  as "baseless and mean" Mr. Broderick's  assertion "in the house of commons yesterday that the paper had.a habit, of  surreptitiously buying secret war office  information, .adding that if-Mr. Broderick ventured to repeat outside the house  that the paper had stolen official documents it would prosecute him for libel.  In the house of commons this afternoon  Swift" McNeill, Irish Nationalist,, made  a motion to the effect that the Daily  Mail's charges were a breach of priv-,  ile-re of the house. The government  leader, Mr. Balfour, assented, but apparently not desiring to stir the matter  up, he said he thought-it was not necessary to press the motion. Mr. McNeill,  however/insisted and the motion was  carried without a division. Mr. McNeill  then moved that the printer and publisher be ordered to,appear at the bar  of the house tomorrow. The motion  was defeated by 2SS to 12S votes.  YACHTING AND OTHER SPORT  A FOUR-DAYS' REGATTA STARTS  AT BUFFALO.

"And they are still at  large," shouted another shareholder.  "Yes, they are," came the answer, and  immediately those present at the meeting rose to their feet, shouting "Lynch  them!'' It .was an exciting moment  for lord Pelham-CIinton, general Gough-  Halthorpe and others who were attending the meeting. A storm of angry  cries was hissed, but the receiver finally  succeeded in calming the shareholders  by promising them every possible protection. ���  HOW-KENNAN-LEFT-RUSSIA  Canadian Reciprocity.

It was also "hown  that the railroad rates aie lower than  for any former exposition for a five, ten  or fifteen-day ticket, according to dis- *  tance,   being at  the  rate of one  fare  plus $1 for  the round  trip,  from  all  parts of the country.   The Niagara Falls*,  one   day  special   excursion   of  former",  years,  when   trains  were  overcrowded  and   everyone' subjected   to   gieat   discomfort,  are  remembered  only so  far-  as the low rate is concerned, and this ,,  is   quoted   as   showing  what  rai'.ht  be  done.   The passenger agents assert that  the present half lates are as low as can-  be reasonably expected.    An extension p  of the present limit has been lookPd for,- .  as it gives too shoit a time for anyone  to see the  big exposition,  but it has  not  yet   been   modified      Other   points  which the rcpesentatives of the pub-.  Ushers' association will la;* stress upon  is that the exposition is complete in all  details and  that both  Buffalo and the-" ���  exposition aie well policed and as tiee--  from dangcious characters as anv city  in the countiy    A joint committea  vas    '  appointed   to   deal   with   questions   affecting the  exposition   ind   the pioper   '  welcome and caie of quests.

NEW YORK, July 30.���Full traffic and  car service has bee'n resumed on Brooklyn bridge. Crowded bridge trains and  surface cars passed over all day Sunday, and the scare seems to have made  no lasting impression on the public  mind. Plans for a new truss for the  structure are under consideration by the  bridge commission. The World says it  learns from the highest authority that  the plans for the new truss have been  drawn, and that prior to the finding of  the break the attention of tin- authorities was to have been called to the fact  that if the bridge was to continue to be  burdened as at present, and was to receive the loads in the future, a 'new  truss would be an absolute necessity.

The Vancouver delegates  gracefully waived their claim to the regatta of 1902 in favor of Nelson, while  the Portland men said they would be  satisfied if they were assured of the  meeting at Portland in 1905, the occasion of their centenary exhibition. This  was conceded, and Nelson was definitely  chosen for 1902, the dates to be fixed  between July 10th and August 1st. The  question of transportation was discussed  in connection with Nelson regatta, and  several delegates testified to the kindness and liberality of the C. P. R. in  that respect.

The pioneers of Utah held a reunion  at Salt Lake last Thursday. In commenting on the procession, the Salt  Lake Tribune utters' words that are as  applicable to the pioneers of Canada as  tothe pioneers of the States. The Tribune says:  "It was pleasant yesterday as the gay  procession  was  passing with flags advanced   and   bands    playing,, and    the  green trees and decorated houses lending beauty to the scene, to contrast the'  splendid present with the sorrow*!iil beginning 54 years ago.    The upper nost  thought   was   that   the   foundation   of  American    States   are   laid: on    brave  hearts.    When a great bridge is to be  built caissons are sunk, and the debris  lifted out until the solid rock is -eached  on which to lay the deep foundations.  .When  states  are to  be created,  states  to be dedicated-, to liberty; and to jus-  -tice-riand=a=foundation=--is=sought=for,-=  thus   far   clear    across   the    continent  those foundations have been laid on the  brave  hearts,   grown   pulseless,   of  the  pioneers.    Theirs  the 'sacrifices,   theirs  the hardships, theirs the sorrows which  come   when   the    mother   cannot    give  her children what they need, when the  father   looks   upon   wife   and   children  with a mighty longing to make them  happier,  which   longing  is   never  realized.    And then the incessant toil, the  poor  reward,  the  utter  banishment  of  luxuries and of many of the ordinary  comforts; the work, the want, the dangers, all these are the wine press that  is trodden by the pioneer, and it is good  to 'honor   their  memories,  and   where  here and there one is left, around him  or her should be drawn the loving arms  of all the present generation, and they  should  be made to feel  that they are  the state's  pride and  perpetual  solicitude.    It is good to steady their steps;  good to crown them with flowers; good  to point out to them that because of  their coming the  frown  of the  desert  has  been  chased  away and   in  lieu  of  it all the world  is smiling;   it is good  to   feast   them   and   to  surround   them  with  music  and   in  every  joy-song  to  make them feel that henceforth so long  as  they  may  live  they  are  to  be  the  state's   chiefest   solicitude.    Then   the  thought comes  back  that the  foundations of all our states are laid in the  hearts of true men and uncomplaining  women;   those  who  toiled   until   their  youth died; those who suppressed many  and  many a reasonable longing;   those  who worked without reward and buoyed  by the only one hope that the burdens  on their children might be less hard to  bear than their own was."  A Complicated Mixup.  The start in the junior fours race was  rather ragged, and the boats had hardly  got 100 yards on thei:' course when Vancouver and Victoria fouled badly, Victoria's rudder being carried away. After  that Victoria assumed the character of  an aquatic comet, colliding with Nelson  and rushing wildly all over the course,  her loose rudder raising a crest of foam  in her erratic wake. When they got  out of the" mixup, Nelson took up the  rowing and gave Portland a good race  for a time, Vancouver and Victoria  struggling manfully to recover lost  ground. Midway of the course, Vancouver and Portland did some good  work, but it was impossible to follow  the race in detail as the judge's launch  was too slow to keep anywhere near  the shells. From the launch it seemed  to be the most complicated mixup imaginable, a succession of fouls and wild  steering, the Portlands alone pursuing  an even, steady course, which landed  them-over the line^in 9:25, with the  nose of Vancouver's shell almost touching theirs. Nelson came third, 2 1-2  lengths behind, and Victoria about 20  lengths in the rear.���Victoria Colonist.  v Successful Swindler-!.  PARIS, July 30.���The police here have  unearthed turf swindlers and card sharpers whose operations were characterized  by extraordinary audacity. The first  discovery was made at the end of May,  when a horse named Colimacon (the  Snail) and known as a worthless plater  won a race at Colombo easy, with the  betting 12 to 1 against the horse. A  week later Colimacon engaged in a similar performance at Maison Laffite. The  jockey club investigated the running of  Colimacon and found that a first-class  English race horse had been substituted  for the original Colimacon by a Belgian;  named Herbout, who had previously,  been warned off the French race courses.  The police then took the matter- up  and discovered that hevwas the head of  a perfect organization of crooks working in France and Belgium. A majority  of the members of the gang had as-,  sumed high-sounding titles and frequented fast circles and ; clubs. ��� One  member, a brother of a well-known  Abyssinian explorer, who styled himself  "count," was arrested. Two others were  self-styled barons and one had given  himself the title of prince. They occupied sumptuous apartments in the  Champs Elysees and Madeliene quarters,  to which they inveigled gilded youth  and swindled them at baccaret. The  losses of prince Karageorgovitch and  four other young men of good families,  alone amounted to 370,000 francs. The  Swindlers owned a yacht called the  Westernine, on board of which their  dupes were inivted and were subsequently plucked.  The police also traced to the gang  the promotion of a number of fictitious  mining and coal Companies. The investigations of the police .led to the flight  of the swindlers. Several of them have  gorie to Abyssinia. Herbout sailed for  Holland on board the Westernine.  Another Irisli Member Susnended  =LONDONr"July^30?^JameT^T^^  the Nationalist member for West Water-  ford, was suspended in the house of  commons today for disorderly conduct  in applying the term "judicial blackguardism" to the conduct of O'Brien,  the lord chief justice of Ireland, in  charging the jury at the recent trial  of T. Walsh, an alderman of the Water-  ford county council, on charges of conspiracy at Cork. Mr. Walsh is connected  with the United Irish League and the  latter boycotted a man who rented a  farm from which the previous tenant  had been evicted. The charge of conspiracy arose this morning. The Nationalists contend that baron O'Brien  conducted the case in an extremely partisan way.  xtxxx tzzzzzzzxzzzxzzzxzzizzzzz__zzzxzz-^____xz_fi  ' M  I LADIES' SUNSHADES I  ! AT HALF PRICK.

PEKIN, July 30.���The edict of the  emperor providing for the reorganization of the Chinese foreign office has  been received here. Its tone and substance satisfy the ministers of the powers.! The edict coincides with their demands on the subject formulated by the  United States special commissioner of  peace. The edict declares that foreign  affairs will hereafter be the most important part of the business of the government, gives the foreign office precer  dence over the six old-boards that previously,; outranked it and provides for  the reception of the ministers in the hall  in which heretofore only near relatives  of the emperor have entered. It also  provides for the entertainment oi! the  ministers by the emperor at occasional  banquets. The German'.'..-minister. Dr.  Mumm von Schwarzenstein, is engaged  in drafting a protocol providing for trie  punishment of. Chinamen guilty of participating, in the Boxer movement. A  feature of this: is that the number of  culprits has dwindled from 160 men  originally named to 5.- This is due to  the fact that: in the majority of cases  it has ;been found impossible to prove  the guilt of the accused.

"Now, the imnz-ovement in the lead  output is really very good. , The MOO  yield was more than three times- the  poor showing of 1S99, and more than  double that of 1S9S.

When I speak of the pau-  De Mores and tbe Bustlers.  The slaying of the famous marquis  de Mores while leading an expedition in  Tunis is made the occasion of a sh-ong  story of tlie marcuiis' adventures with  the rustlers in the -Bad Lands of Montana, told in the July number of Everybody's Magazine, an extract from which  is here reproduced:  The   marquise   lived   under   constant  dread that some 'raneeman would kill  her husband, and when he was abroad  on his tours of inspection she spent  most of her time in the little church. It  was well she remained in Medora. or  ���his'crave, would now be on the melancholy, lava-strewn_ shoulder of some little butte, instead of in far-away Tunis.  One day the Frenchman adopted the  tactics of his rustler neighbors and  brought down his man. He fired from  ambush into a party which had just cut  his fence and was riding away, laughing over the trick they thought they  had played on the silly marquis. One  man plunged from his saddle and the  others galloped over the hill'with bullet's from the enraged nobleman's gun  clipping the sage brush around them.  The man who was killed belonged to a  band of cattle rustlers who operated  all over the Little Missouri country.  They rode into Medora one afternoon,  hitched their horses cin front of the  saloon and openly announced that they  had come down to hang de Mores to a  telegraph pole.  '���'We'll hang him," said the leader,  "where the madam can look out of her  winder an' see him claw air."  They hung about the saloon iall_the_  "afterno"on7"arrd"ab"out sundown the lead-"  er of the crew and his lieutenants retired behind the church to perfect their  plans. It had been one of those skin-  shriveling clays in the Bad Lands, but  "the madam" had walked across the  bridge to the little church. She was  sitting beside an open window when  the men who were hungry for her husband's life left the 'saloon and disappeared behind the church. They stopped  within two yards of the spot where  she sat and unfolded their plot in detail, the leader giving each of his subalterns their. instructions. They were  to watch for the marquis' arrival, and  one of the gang was to ride up to the  gate, call him out, and hold him in conversation regarding his fences until the  others could surround the house and  close in. "The madam" waited until  she heard the men move away, then  crept along the floor to the door, determined to warn her husband. It was  several hundred yards to the railroad,  and between it and the church was  nothing to shield her from the outlaws.  In a few seconds she was well on her  way across the stretch of white between  the church and the railroad, speeding  like one of those little desert whirlwinds. Half a dozen revolvers were  .-jerked from their holsters and half a  dozen little clouds of dust were kicked  up around the racing woman's feet. But  "the madam" did not slacken her spied.  She reached home as the marquis came  galloping up to the gate. When de Moi es  heard her story, he was furious. He  mounted a horse, and, unattended; rode  over to Medora. There he learned that  his enemies had crossed the river and  gone into camp. The marquis swung  into the saddle again and rode away  toward the river. The saloon keeper  and the few citizens who had plucked  up courage to come out for their regular  nightly round of drinking stood looking  blankly into each other's faces as he  disappeared in the darkness. They were  daily witnesses of audacious feats, but  this Frenchman going single-handed  against 25 ruffians who were ready to  hang him was the most striking exhibition of* nerve ever seen in Medora.  The rustlers were eating their supper,  some drunk and none very sober, around  the embers of their fire, when the thump  of horse's hoofs and the rustle of the  scrub sagebrush as the animal came on,  HEAD   OFFICE.

"The stranger  guided his horse up to the fire, sprang  to the ground, dropped the long bridle  reins at his feet, faced, the astonished  men and remarked:  "Now, gentlemen, if you have the rope  ready here I am. ������ I am the marquis de  Mores." ,  The unsteady blaze, '* leaping up and  falling low, like the pulse of a man  who is dying of thirst oh the desert,  showed the marquis' strange, pale face.  One-of the long pistols, invhis hands  pointed at the breast of the leader of  the gang; the other persistently followed his head, no matter how he turned  it. Presently the leader of the gang  threw his revolver down with an oath  which made the marquis' horse start,  jerked his hat off, advanced toward the  Frenchman/holding out his hand.  "Put 'er there, pard," he said; "you  got a blanked sight more grit'n I give  you credit fur." Then facing: his grim-  faced'crew he continued: "Boys, they  won't be any hangin' up to Medora tonight. That affair has been indef'nitely  postponed."  Together, de Mores and the men who  had a.:few minutes before enjoyed the  prospect of seeing him "claw the air,"  rode over to Medora. The gang drank  long life and tight fences to the nar-  quis and several gallant toasts vo his  pretty wife. That was the last adventure of the brittle-tempered Frenchman  in the northwest. He stay-d. in ihe  Bad Lands until he was whipped by. the  country. One afternoon v.'no inhabitants  of Medora were not surprised wheu iliey  saw the numerous trunks nf the dwellers in the green mansion piled -.tp "i"the  depot platform. The marquis was a  strange man. who came into the west  as a fantastic shadow out of am.iher  world and tried to fashion the big, raw  country after the pattern of things he  knew. He was slain, as he slew his man  in the Bad Lands, from ambush, Wuile  leading a French military expedition in  Tunis, something more than four years  ago. His widow now advances his claim  that he was the victim of a conspiracy  on the part of certain French government officials.  Does  not  contain  any  ent-<*.

Jasper Phair, the Dominion quarantine  officer at Rykerts was in Nelson yesterday. He was a witness of a very plucky  rescue from drowning of a deckhand on  the steamer Kaslo as that boat was approaching the landing wharf at Kaslo.  "When the steamer was within a few feet  of the floating wharf Mr. Phair heard a  splash and on looking over the side of the  steamer saw the head oi a man disappearing under the water. He at once gave the  alarm. A man named Hall was standing  on the wharf at the time and saw the  deckhand go overboard.'Without a moment's delay he plunged in after him but the  action of the steamer's wheel carried the  two men in-under the floating wharf. Hall  had no difficulty in reaching tho drowning  man, but the latter managed to clutch  him around the neck w.-iich rendered him  powerless to effect the rescue or save himself. As neither of the men rose to the  surface tne spectators began to think tliat  they had witnessed a double drowning  fatality. Fortunately ii occurred to some  one on the wharf to probe under the wharf  wuii a. bamboo pole. In doing so he prodded Hall and the latter had just sufficient  sense left to take hold of It and in tliis  manner was drawn out from under the  wharf together with tho deckhand. The  breath of air which Hall got revived him  for a moment and he then went down  for the deckuand a second time, who was  now unconscious. He suceeded in bringing him -to ..the surface, when he again  gave out. Tlie two men were then fished  out of the water and ��� after several minutes' work were resuscitated. Hall's feat  was pronounced by all who witnessed it  as tho most daring attempt at saving life  ever seen on Kootenay lake, as he took  a,. Kinds of chances in going ln after the  deckhand in .'view of the proximity of the  steamer to the floating wharf. He will be  recommended for the Royal Humane Society's medal.

It is said that  tlie local holders of Venus stock do not  favor tho arrangement, which has been  arrived at in the east, wliich involves a  considerable departure from the original  deal in that It provides vor a much smaller  cash payment. A. E. Rand was expected  to arrive in Nelson for the purpose of effecting a hotter arrangement among the  local- shareholders of the Venus company  but he either missed his ���connection or  was detained at the coast. The Athabasca  people are conlident that they will be able  to make a deal on the Venus, in which  event it is said tho Athabasca company  will be reconstructed.  Maxwell Stevenson, junior, arrived in  Nelson from Ainsworth for the purpose  of meeting his father, judge Stevenson,  of Philadelphia, who intends to spend the  next month in tlie Ainsworth camp. Maxwell Stevenson says the Highlander property continues to develop nicely. The south  dirft, which lias been driven in on the big  ledgo which was cut by the crosscut tunnel, is now in a distance of 1J10 feet and  lias disclosed a fine body of ore in what  appears to be a continuous chute. A drift  has also been started north, but it is not  in more than 20 feet at the present. Work  upon the crosscut is being pushed for tiie I  purpose of eatelilne the Mamie ledge.
