C, MONDAY, JULY 22, 1901  FIVE CENTS  II  FATAL TRAMWAY ACCIDENT  DONALD J. BEATON MEET DEATH  SUDDENLY.  -Was Thrown From a Car Platform on  Stanley Street and Died. Three  Hours Later.  a period, however, that he has decided  to become a full-fledged American, and  will return from his home in Toronto  in the fall with his family.  . - - ��� ��� -, >  Donald ,T. Beaton, editor of the Nelson Miner, died last evening at the residence of John ilorton on Stanley street'  as the result of injuries received by  being thrown off one of the Nelson  tramway company's cars on Stanley  street. '���-.���'  Mr. Beaton had spent a short time  yesterday afternoon at the residence of  D. A. McFarland and :on the return  journey decided to take the. car clown  town. He boarded one of the red cars,  and as he was smoking rode on the rear  platform. When the car reached the  corner of - Observatory and Stanley  streets, where it turns out to avoid  the steep grade, Mr. Beaton lost his  footing  and   the  lurch  of  the   car  on  , the curve threw him put on the roadway. He struck the'ground on his head  and left shoulder. The car was stopped  at once and H. A. Langford of the tram-  , way company, who happened to be.on  the car at the time, together with H.  Bird, hurried to Mr. Beaton's assistance. When assisted to his. feet Mr.  Beaton appeared dazed, but was able to  walk with assistance. His injuries at  the time were not regarded as serious  and he was assisted to Mr. Horton's  residence to rest. Dr.- Arthur was summoned and also a nurse from the hospital. The doctor .did what he could  to ease the sufferings of the patient and  left him in the care of the nurse. Contrary to expectations, however, Mr. Beaton did not rally. Dr. Arthur made a  second visit shortly after 8 o'clock, when  ���he at once saw by the change which  had como over the patient that the end  was near and by 8:30 he broke the news  to W. W. Beaton, who was present, that  his father was' dead.  it is thought that death was due to  concussion of the brain, but there were  no marks of violence on the body save  a slight abrasion of the skin on the  left elbow. Death came' to the injured  ���p;an very gently, and .within three hours  from the time when he had boarded  the car to return to his home his body  was lifeless. No arrangements havo  been made for tlie funeral as yet.  Donald J. Beaton was 60 years of age.'  He had a long career as. a journalist.  At one time* he .was recognized as one'  of.the strongest writers on the Liberal  press of Canada, but when the Green-  way party in Manitoba split up he identified himself with* the Conservative  party in that province. He was also  very closely identified with Hugh Sutherland in his famous Hudson Bay railway scheme nr connection with which  he made several trips to the old country. After this he'resumed iiis newspaper work and for several years edited  the ���Manitoba Free Press while that  journal'was controlled by W. F. Luxton.  Mr. Beaton came to.Nelson in October,  1S98, when lie became editor of the  Miner, a position which, he continued: to  fill with one brief interval until his  vdeatl*/ Three sons survive him. The  eldest is Colin Beaton of Cape Nome,  ���"A'hpijWent���nor-th=ias=managei*=foi*==t!ie^  Alaska Commercial Company, but sines  resigned this position to look after his  own "extensive interests. The second  son is K. C. Beaton, who for some tima  was identified with his father in the  publication of the Miner, and more recently has filled the position of city  .editor of the Seattle Times; and the  third eon is W. W. Beaton, night editor  of the Mine:*.  Concession to Potato Shippers.  R. M. Palmer, who in addition to his  position as provincial inspector of  fruit pests, is serving as special commissioner in connection with railway  rates and traffic, has been spending  several days in ��� Vernon district,; says  the Vernon News. He informs us of  another important concession made to  shippers by the C. P. R. which will permit a minimum car rate of 12 tons for  shippers of new potatoes, instead of 18  tons as formerly. This will make matters much easier for shipping farmers  and produce dealors. Mr. Palmer states  that in no part of the province is there  such good prospects for tlie fruit.crop  as in this district, and he thinks that  apples will command an unusually good  price this fall, as in many parts the  crop is a partial failure.  Deathof Mrs. Kruger.  PRETORIA, July 21.���Mrs. Kruger,  wife of former president Kruger of the  South African republic, died yesterday  of pneumonia after an illness of three  days.   She was G7 years old.  LONDON, July 21.���Owing to the Sunday, telegraph hours in Holland, .says  a dispatch to the Daily Mail from Hil-  versnn, Mr. Kruger was not informed  of his wife's death until the evening.  The news, was broken to him by Dr.  ���Hermans,and secretary Boeschcoten. Mr.  Kruger, who had just returned from  Hilversun church,.'burst into tears and  asked to be left alone. He exclaimed:  "She was a good Svife; we quarreled  only once and that was six months after  we were married." He prayed for a long  time and is now calmly sleeping, his  Bible by his bed. The Transvaal and  Orange Free State flags flying above the  white village are draped and lialf-mast-  ed.

The excellent showing made  hy the 'varsity crew at Poughkeepsie  after so many miserable failures thoroughly pleased every alumnus and attendant of the college and the lion's  ���share of the credit was given to the  coaching. In the agreement reached Mr.  Hanlan was engaged for a long term  of years, just how long neither he nor  the members of the rowing committee  -would say.   He is to be here for such  Bisley Shooting and" Other'Sports.

Ford, correspondent of the New York Tribune,  says: Cecil Rhodes and Dr. Jameson  have remained virtually in retirement  since their return to England and have  not revealed their plans. .Mr. Rhodes  affects mystery at all-times and enjoins  silence as a necessary condition of service rendered to him by all his associates and employes. Dr. Jameson is  entirely under Mr. Rhodes' influence  and imitates the inscrutable reticence  of his chief. They have a strong body  of mine owners and partisans in London with whom they liave opened com-  1 munications and exchanged confidences.  They are outspoken critics of the military administration during the war, but  respect lord Kitchener, and' are not disposed to hold him responsible for the  delay in bringing the campaign to an  end. - They will remain in the background and look aftwr their business  affairs. Dr. Jameson's health has not  been fully restored^ still he is fairly  well and Mr. Rhodes: never was more  vigorous and alert.  The mining interests in South Africa,  according to well Informed /men like  Alfred Beit, are slowly improving. Johannesburg is filling up as rapidly as  the railway can supply food for the  workers and one neglected property after another is receiving attention. There  is a more hopeful feeling among South  Africans than among military men respecting the situation. The captured:  correspondence between Messrs. "Reitz  and Steyn has convinced the mine owners that the Boer ammunition is nearly  exhausted and that guerilla operations  cannot be maintained, when about 500  Boers are accounted for every week as  killed, wounded or prisoners.- They are  also encouraged' by the signs of thoroughness with which the. Orange River  Colony and the Eastern Transvaal have  been cleared and by the evidence that  the Boers remaining in the Dutch districts of Cape Colony are Cape rebels  who can be' brought to trial and" punished for depredations.  ' IRVING AND TERRY.  "Coriolanus" was enacted for the last  time at the Lyceum Theater last night,  and the friends of Sir Henry Irving and  .Miss Ellen Terry rallied in force to  give them a hearty greeting.; The play  went smoothly and Sir Henry Irving's  acting was stronger and much more  distinct than on the opening night. He  had a most hearty greeting after every  act and was recalled at thei close for  his usual affectionate speech of thanks  and the announcement of his plans for  the provinces of America.  LONDON GOSSIP.  From hot weather, politics and pageants, there is a merciful deliverance  over Sunday. The peeresses scuttled out  of town after the dullest matinees ever  planned for smart society: The mercury has continued to rise, while the  Liberals have been floundering in hot  =waterf=-The=Gity=Liberal=Glub,=Avhich-  is recruited mainly from the Liberal-  Unionist followers of Mr. Chamberlain,  heard lord Rosebery in an atmosphere  like the breath of a fiery furnace, and  the faithful friends of Mr. Asquith joining together repeated Sidney Smith's  joke about taking off one's flesh and  sitting in one's bones.  The weather remains sweltering, but  the railway stations have been thronged from an early hour with refugees,  from the inclement weather.  The season has ended without further ado and the leading theaters are  closing tonight, leaving the opera,to  drag on for a few evenings with ,the  house half filled. ���  The trial of earl Russell has been  generally dismissed with tho unanswerable comment that so picturesque a ceremony wr.s farcical when the peer was  tried for a vulgar felony instead of  hiirh treason.  POLITICALLY DEAD.  The general opinion is gaining ground  that lord Rosebery is politically dead  under existing circumstances. His letter has been dropped. He might have  joined Mr. Asquith, Sir Henry Fowler  and Sir Edward Grey and assumed the  leadership of the Liberal Imperialist  group which gained a majority of the  opposition seats last autumn. This  would have been r. practical method of  working out a supreme political end  within the lines of the party; and the  importance of leadership and fusion is  proved by the captured correspondence  of Mr. Steyn, showing that the despairing Boers, with their ammunition exhausted and with the hope of foreign  intervention dispelled as a hollow mockery, are counting upon radical disaffection and the growing uneasiness of  public opinion in England. Instead of  joining natural allies and making a  strong stand, he has separated himself from them, exposed them to ridicule and retired gloomily to his own  furrow with the strange delusion that  in a country with a double party system of government and representative  institutions a new party can be formed  around a sensitive and fastidious leader  who considers himself above. all parties and never leads. Single furrow  agriculture in politics is a sentimental  vagary in comparison with which even  ploughing the.sands was a scientific  process. The formation of a new imperialistic party with democratic tendencies is not a crying public need, when  Mr. Chamberlain represents these principles and has secured the confidence  of the self-governing colonies.  FAILURE OF THE CONFERENCE.  The conference respecting permanent  colonial representation in an imperial  court of appeal is a failure, since Canada has not been; convinced that the  time has come for changing existing arrangements and the proposals of the  colonial ofllce will ��� be referred to' each  home government ifor deliberate judgment. Mr. Chamberlain is not discouraged, but is planning a new scheme for  stimulating the affection of the loyal ���  colonists. As the king will be crowned ,with a new imperial title, the presence of. representative men from the  colonies will be in.dispensible at- the  coronation. He is hoping to secure the  attendance of the jpremiers of all the  self-governing colonies and to-have'on  parade contingents of the auxiliary  troops which haye: been fighting the  battles of the empire. The scheme has  not been worked.out in"detail, but Mr.  Chamberlain is alive to the necessity  for converting the j coronation into a'  splendid imperial fete.    , ' V  Foreign affairs are remarkably quiet.  The hitch between j England and Russia  over the Chinese ^indemnity leads some  writers for the pressjto' sigh for a modus  vivendi 'of some kind between the two  foreign offices by'j which everything  would he straightened, out.  TELEGRAMS IN BRIEF FORM  FROM    VARIOUS   QUARTERS  THE  GLOBE.  OP  Interesting Occurrences of Yesterday  Condensed and Printed in a  General Way.  iffices    by' j  straighterk  MILLS T:  BUILD MILLS THIS SUMMER  SLOCAN MINES LIKELY TO MAKE  .    SUOH IMPROVEMENTS.  The Famous Kootenay Silver-Lead Districts Are HustliEg to Keep  . Thing's Moving.  The Slocan Paystreak of Saturday  says a business revival seems to be  fairly in sight in-the Slocan. Nearly  every property in the district is working a force .of some kind, though in  several cases the payroll is still small,  but persistent rumors are heard of such  properties as the Ruth, Ivanhoe, Whitewater, and Last Chance putting on full  forces. The Payne and Rambler - can  also be counted on to build mills this"  summer. Operations will be resumed  at the Reco property next week. A cook  was sent up to the mine yesterday to  make preparations for receiving the  working force which will be put on in a  few days. The trails are now in first-  class shape, the workings are dry, and  everything points to a successful summer's operations. A $1000 contract on  the Texas claini of the Reco group has  been completed.  Considerable work is, being done on  the dry ore properties in the vicinity of  Bear lake this summer and the returns  are very encouraging. On the Silver  Glance and Summit Queen, situated  about two and a half miles up the trail  from the lake a tunnel has been run in  25 feet on the ledge, opening a very  rich six-inch streak of quartz which  carries antimonial silver and black  sulphurates. Assays as" high as $78  to the ton have been obtained. The  -property^is-now^being^de.velopM^yjth^  small force. ...The, government has appropriated a small sum to put the trail  in good shape. Men are at work on the  Silver King and Oscar claims, also close  to Bear lake. Considerable surface  work has been done on the properties  and a cross-cut tunnel is now being  run in to tap the ledge with depth.  Sixty men are now on the payroll at  the Rambler and a car of ore a day is  being shipped. A new strike, richer  than ever, is reported on the shaft,  which explains the recent advance of  Rambler stock to 37. cents. It is rumored that the Rambler company will purchase the Washington mill and move It  to a point further down the hill, where  an adequate water supply will be assured.  On the Rabbit Paw property, which  belongs to the Star Mining & Milling  Company and which adjoins the Slocan Star claims, the apex of the ledge  has been discovered and shown up in  open cuts near the cabin and close to  the end. line-of the property and has  been traced onto the Heber ground, a  fractional claim also owned by the Star.  A short tunnel has been run in .parallel  with the Rabbit Paw line, cross-cutting  the ledge some distance below surface.  Assays from the ledge matter found  in this tunnel show 15 ounces in silver  and 3 1-2 per cent lead. This is considered an important discovery, as it is  believed by the Star people to\be the  outcrop of the Slocan Star ledge on their  ground. Work will be continued on  the ledge to prove the dip and trend.  The shipments for the week aggro-  gated 174 tons, of which 109 tons were  from the Slocan Star, 25 from the Payne,  and 20 each from the Trade Dollar and  American Boy.  Prayers Were Unavailing.

Captain Fishley of the  vessel, speaking of the Boer prisoners  on the island/ says: ''There ar,e just  4700 prisoners. Of these 17 per cent are  Transvaalers and Orange Free Staters.

The number of  Scandinavians is surprising. I found  that many of the Scandinavians held  masters' and mates' certificates. There  were many desertions from Scandinavian ships in South African ports.

LONDON, July 21.���The dinner given  last night to Herbert Asquith by 30  Liberal members of the house of commons and 370 other public men, whicli  had been looked forward to for a month  as an event that might result in the  organized recession of the Liberal Imperialists, was a quiet and even dreary  affair. Mr. Asquith's speech had been  spoiled by the Incidents of the week,  especially by lord Rosebery's letter to  the City Liberal Club, and by his speech  later before that body. Mr. Asquith  spoke with deference of Sir Henry  Campbell-Bannerman, but did not mention lord Rosebery. He reaffirmed in  moderate phrases his protest against  the Liberals identifying themselves with  the pro-Boer group,, declaring that the  Liberals must recognize the empire and  its needs and then go in for domestic  reforms. The speech is generally regarded as not in any way altering the  situation of.the Liberals. Lord Rosebery's allusion before the City Liberal  Club yesterday to ploughing his furrow is considered enigmatic, but as  seeming to mean his posible re-entrance  upon the responsibility of party leadership at a later period.  A road is being built in the high Alps  which passes the Great St. Bernard and  also the hospice of that name. This  great engineering feat will be finished  and opened to traffic in July of next  year.  0 new record in dynamiting has been  made at a Penobscot bay quarry, in  Maine. A 52,000 ton block of granite was  easily   lifted.  �� D. W. Moore, ore buyer for the Tiall  smelter, is back on the road after an  absence of three months spent holid.iy-  ing in California.    The most remarka-  *  ble thing he witness*.*! while away was  the new use which is^now being made  of the petroleum output in California v  as a motive power.   Tho Southern Pa-1 -  ciflc railway has led the way In this re- .'.  spect and has now 95 locomotives fitted  up to burn petroleum from a sprey.   In  locomotive work  it  is  estimated  that. "  one barrel of oil is equal to a ton of  coal in effectiveness.and as the oil cr.   '  be purchased at a saving of at least  one-third on the price of coal the Jnno-    -  vation is destined to work wonders. The  saving which the change will make on ���  the Southern Pacific system is estimated  as high as $4,000,000 per annum.  When  the saving is applied'to all the rail: ��.  ways of the state the total will reach   "  very high figures.    This will mean a -  great gain for the state of California  and   a  corresponding   loss   for  British" ^  Columbia, as much of the coal at present  being shipped  from  the  mines  of  Vancouver island has been used by the  railways entering San Francisco. Present indications are that the oil supply'1  of the state is practically unlimited and   *'  the saving effected by its use is* such "*  that it will be but a short time until tho "���  peti oleum supplants coal for power pur-  *  poses throughout the entire state, which ^J  will mean the shutting off of the chief'-"'  export market of the Vancouver Island  coal mines.  While in California Mr. Moore saw a���   <���  number of the men who have made a. -  competence for themselves, out of the*  mines of West Kootenay.   Among these '  were J. C. Eaton and his partner Price, >���  who made their turn on the sale of their!."  Whitewater   properties   in the  Slocan.  Price is now living at Pasadena and is "r-  at present contemplating putting $20,1- ' >  000 into a scheme for the, recovery of  the asphaltum out of the crude oil. This  scheme  involves   a  partial  refining  of"-  the oil and-would effect the. saving of  ���*  the asphaltum contents without destroying the value of the oil for power purposes.    Jack Thompson, who made his  money out of the Goodenough and othei-  Slocan properties, is now at Riverside,  and is making money out of an orange  crop.    Another man  at Riverside who  was wel} known in the early development of the Slocan  is H.  Briggs, who  had properties on Four-mile creek.   He  also is on easy street and  is enjoying-  life.    Bob Jackson, who made enough.    ���  out of his Blue Bell property in Jackson Basin to buy an orange grove, has  grown tired of raising oranges.   He sold  out some time ago and is now in the  Northwest Terntoi ies raising wheat instead of oranges.  The Eastern Strikers.  PITTSBURG, July 21. ��� President *  Shaffer when shown the statement of  Warner Arms in New York, concerning the non-union mills, said: "Mr.  =Arms agreed-to sign-the scale-for-Salcs���=���  burg and the Old Meadow mine at Scots-  dale, but not non-union mills, as did  the other representatives of the United  States Steel Cor;ioration. Mr. Arms  is reported to have said that he would  sign for Monessen. I do not believe that  Mr. Arms ever said that to the public,  for he never made any such statement  before the confcience or to me privately, but I know he agreed to sign for  two mills. If he is willing to sign for-  two, why not all. This definition of  the wage agreement is correct, whether*  it comes from Mr. Arms or not. I stated  to the representatives of the United  States Steel Corporation in conference  that I represented the men ot the Lindsay, McCutchcon's and Painter's mills,  nnd agreed to prove that I represented  them by stating that they were at work  at that time because I insisted that they  continue work In the hope of reaching  a settlement, and that If they, the representatives of the company, doubted  my statement I would prove it by closing those mills almost immediately. The  men of these mills arc showing now by  ceasing work that they wish the scale  to be signed. This is also true of the  men at Claik's mill and the likelihood  is that if a settlement is not effected  speedily the men in other supposed nonunion mills will indicate their desire  to h**ve the scale signed."  WILKESBARRE. July 21.���The stationary firemen's strike has practically  collapsed. At a confeience here today  between the executive board of the  United Mine Workers of America and  the striking firemen, committees were  appointed to wait on the coal companies and if the strikers are taken back  the strike will be declared off.

FOUNTAIN  PENS . .  .  A   fountain   pen   is  not    a    necessity,  neither is the telegraph, telephone or  The   follov.'ing   from   the   Greenwood  Times  of  Friday  might  be  read   with  profit by the business men of Nelson,  who are responsible for prolonging the  ��      life of at least one moribund newspaper.   Thero is no more room in Nelson  for daily newspapers  than there is  in  Greenwood for two weekly newspapers,  and there would  be but one were the  business of publishing a newspaper conducted as' are other- legitimate business  ventures: -.In Nelson one daily newspaper  has  been  kept  alive   by  subsidies  v,from   mining  companies  and  subscriptions   from   business   men   who   wer��  afraid of the hostility of the managers  of the mining companies, and the result  ,   qf   all   their   expenditure   of  money   is  that the newspaper is in the hands oz  the sheriff.   The Tribune is a legitimate  v business  venture.    It has  a  first-class  newspaper, job, and  bindery plant.    It  pays its obligations when due.    It has  disbursed   for -wages   in   the   last  two  years and a half ?37,000, and its payroll  -now averages over ?250 a week.   It has  not appealed to any man, faction, party,  ^,or organization for support.   The news-  . paper is run on its merits, and the work  turned out in the job and binedry departments  speaks   for  itself.    The  one  method has  landed  one  newspaper  in  the   hands   of   the   sheriff;   the   other  method has built up a newspaper that'  has a reputation for business honesty,  the equal of any newspaper in the prov-  * ince. It is not unlikely that the sheriff  will continue .the publication bf the  Miner, but its publication will-no doubt  be contiuued by someone, not in the interest of Nelson as a business commu-   nity,=but-=in=the=interest=of=men=who=  have axes to grind. Railway subsidies  are looked for by one set of men; the  mineral tax hurts another set; the ownership   of  public  utilities   like  electric  ��� lighting plants goes against the grain  of another set;  there are men in office  ' whom   another   set  would   like   to   see  clubbed to death.   .These-mcn combine  ��� and chip in once or twice a year to keep  a    discredited    newspaper    alive.    The  Greenwood Times' article is as follows:  AN   AN'NOON'CliMliNT.  Arnii'Krnments ��cr* <:omi'leto<l this week  under  which  thu Greenwood  Miner ceases  publication  and   the jol>  printing bUHiiics.s  ol   the  Miner has  been   tniii.sferred  to thu  Greenwood   Times.

There   arc   altogether   (oo   many   newspapers  in   British  Columbia.  The  expen.se  i onnccled   with  the  publication  of even  a  ���weekly paper is far too  large to warrant  the publication of a paper in many of the  small  towns and of more than one in  tiie  laiger  towns  in   the  mining- district,   '.fho  publication-  of   two   papers   in- Greenwood  -.vps   mipri'fil.'i.blo   to   the   publishers   and  enUiluel  a  hardship  on  the  business  rri-*!>  who for patriotic reasons patronized bath  pupers with  a view to keeping them both  alive.   There   was   not   sulllcient   revenue  coming   to  either  paper   to  meet  the  ex-  p-'ruli'.iu*-'    neci-ssary    to    pulili.-h . a   good  paper.   With  only  one  paper  in  the  field,  Mich  expenditure  is  possible and   we  feel  confident   that  one  good   paper  can  more  < ffictivoly   reflect   the   business   stKiidtn;;  of the city than  two published under different circumstances. The publishers of the  Time1- have lost sufficient in  the business  to  learn   the   lessori  taiiKht  by. experience  and   they  know   it   is   folly   lo  attempt  to  publish a better paper than its p;Uronnr,e  will   warrant.   There   was   never  room   for  iwo   papers  in   Greenwood   and   there  will  not be business for two p.-tpor*. Tor years  to  come no-matter how rapid  the .tfrowlh  of tin- city may lie. With the assistance of  tho   business   men.   with   a  determination  on   the  part  of  the  citizens   to  encour.*i��ro  the  publication  of a really  flrst-class  paper the Times of the future will be n much  better paper than in the past.

Messrs. ��� McDonald and Kirby  have in the most public'manner possible  invited   criticism,  and  if they  are  now   being   "pounded    on   the    back"  through the press, they are only getting  what  they should  expect.    There is  a  wide difference in commenting; on the  acts of these two men in their capacity  as mine managers and on their acts as  private   individuals.     As    far   as    The  Tribune is aware, neither Mr; McDonald  nor Mr. Kirby has had  cause to complain of attacks on their personal character.

The following: is from the Fort Steele  Prospector of Saturday: "The town has  this week been thrown into a fever,of  excitement by the disappearance of  Charles Clark, for many years collector  of customs. For a month or two past  Mr. Clark has been suffering from a  condition of nervous prostration accompanied by neurastherine symptoms and  some insomnia. On Wednesday forenoon last he left the house unnoticed,  and since then his movements can only  ,be with great uncertainty traced. The  fear, however, is that in a temporary  aberration of mind he may have slipped  into the river and been drowned.  There was ��� nothing: whatever in Mr.  Clark's domestic, financial or official relations to frivc cause for him cloins an  injury to himself; but if this has been  the case it could only have been in a  moment of temporary aberration whicli  deprived him of all responsibility for  his actions. Mr.' Clark was a. man uni-*  versally respected in the district and  his friends and particularly his wife  have the sincere sympathy of .everyone  ,in their present affliction."  ___  If you are in need of  a good flask for picnic orfishing or traveling purposes- call  and seethe styles we  carry.
