The Sheriff Sells It, and the Real Purchasers Are Said to Be the Crow's  Nest Coal Company.  Yesterday the sheriff of South Kootonay- -sold.- .the Miner newspaper, lock,  stock, and barrel, to W. A^ Macdonald,  acting as agent for* Miller & Richard,  type founders and printing machinery  dealers, Toronto, to satisfy judgments  obtained by that Arm against the company that owned the outfit. A short  history of the newspaper that has had  such an inglorious experience may not  he uninteresting.  The- first  number  of the Miner was  issued in June, 1890. by John Houston,  Charles H. Ink, and \V. Gesner Allen;  tlie two first named being the owners of  the plant and the latter being associated  with them in the publication of the paper.   The following June Allen severed  his connection with-the firm, and Houston & Ink continued its publication until  May, 1S92, when they sold to David 13.  Bogle and E. P. Whalley.   The year was  'a   very   i>ro��perous   one,   and   Messrs.  Bogle & Whalley made money.   In December,   1893.  they  found  parties  who  were eager to invest money in a newspaper in Nelson, and they sold out, the  purchasers being Clive PliilHps-Wolley,  B. H. Newton, and P.. A. Renwick, "the  former owning one-half and the other  ' two one-quarter  each  of the  stock  in  the Miner Printing & Publishing Company,  and  under  that name the  business was carried on by them and their  many-   successors.    Mr.  . Renwick _ .disposed of his interest to Wolley'in the  spring of 1894, and the" paper/was' ed-:.  -    ited and managed afterwards by.Charles  St. Barhe.    In 1895. W. A. Jowett. who  was conducting a real estate and mine  brokerage, business in Nelson, imagined  he was a born newspaper man.  He gained   control  of  the  Miner  company  by  trading Wolley real estate-at Trail for-  his shares.   Jowett ran it awhile alone,  but in 1897 disposed of an interest, to  W. F. Thompson, who supposed that'he  would be allowed to control it as busi-  j---"ss manager.   Disagreements followed,  and Thompson, who had-a newspaper at'  - Trail, retired.    In the fall of 1S98, Jow- ���  ett became financially embarrassed and  a" deal was arranged by which the late  D. J. Beaton assumed control as editor  -  and  manager,  the shares  in  the  company being held hy Beaton, Hugh Sutherland, John Elliott, W. A. Macdonald,  and others.   It was the purpose of these  men to use the paper to advance their  .mining schemes and promote their political ambitions.    A city election was  coming on and they defeated the then  mayor, who was a candidate for re-election; and elected four out of six aldermen.   This was all the glory they ever:  'accomplished in a political way. and if  v any of the mining ventures of.the.share-  - holders have, been benefited through -the,  influence of their newspaper, it is the  only secret of the company that.is not  public property.   Partly to get even for  his   defeat   for   mayor,   John   Houston  acquired  an   interest  in   The Tribune,  and began the publication of a daily on  January 15th, 1S99/ He had an advan^  =^tage=that=tells=in=a"newspaper--fight"~He"  knew the people of Kootenay and their  peculiarities; the manager of.the Miner  did not.    The Tribune was  owned by  men who either'hr.d all their property  in Kootenay, or so large a proportion of  it, that what benefited Kootenay benefited them, and the people realized that  its success meant the success of an enterprise that could7 always  be counted  ; on  to" battle  for  the  interests   of  the.  country  in   wliich   most   of. them   had  made their homes for -food.   The Miner,  on the other hand, was used to grind  individual axes, and for over a year it  has had a hand-to-mouth existence, living on subsidies from the Mine Owners'  Association  and' subscriptions  obtained from individuals on the special  plea that it would  not look well  for  Nelson to have its oldest paper suspend  publication.    Finally,    the    Merchants'  Bank refused to make the company further  advances  and  obtained  judgment  by consent for $1300.   Miller & Richard  of Toronto had sold the company type  and machinery on credit, and in order  to protect themselves they bought the  Merchants' Bank judgment and obtained judgment by consent for the amount  of their claim,-, the two judgments aggregating $5400.    The sheriff was then  called on to sell the.-'property so that  Miller & Richard could give title to a  ���purchaser, as they were not in the business of publishing newspapers.  Yesterday the sheriff did what he was  called in to do, and although the property was bid in by W. A. Macdonald, he  was merely acting for Miller & Richard.  ��4t is said the property will pass into the  possession of the Crow's Nest.Coal Company, who of late have made advances  to keep the concern afloat. If this is  true, the Miner will no doubt be made  the organ of the Liberal party, as the  Crow's Nest Coal Company magnates  are all Liberals, and it is the aim of that  party to carry this province at the next  ���provincial elections  The Tribune welcomes the change, for  there is little amusement and less glory-  in fighting a cripple.  Tr. Koch Visits the Congress.  LONDON, July 23.���A feature of today's session of the British congress ou  tuberculosis was Dr. Robert Koch's paper,  which  was  listened  to  with  the  deepest interest by a big gathering in  St. James' hall. Lord Lister (professor  of surgery in Glasgow and Edinburgh  universities and one of the British vice-  presidents of the congress) introduced  the noted German professor tb the assembly. ���' During his address to the congress, Dr. Koch said his experiments  had satisfied him that human tuberculosis and bovine tuberculosis were radically different diseases and that he had  amply demonstrated that bovine could  not be infected with human tuberculosis.  The counter proposition that human.beings Svere not liable to infection from  bovine tuberculosis was harder to prove,  owing to the difficulty of experimenting  upon human subjects, but that personally he was satisfied such was" the case.  He then entered into a lengthy analysis  of the best methods of pi-eventing consumption. _Dr. Koch also highly complimented Dr.. Hermann Biggs, pathologist and director of the bacteriological  laboratory of.the New York city health  department, upon the' repressive measures concerning*, tuberculosis taken in  New York city, where, he said, the mortality from tuberculosis had been reduced 35 per cent since 1S8G and recommended the system organized by Dr.  Biggs of New York to the study and  imitation of all municipalities. Dr.  Koch closed his remarks expressing belief that the ultimate stamping out of  tuberculosis was possible.  VERY POORLY ADVERTISED  EFFECT OF THE DROUCHT  NELSON RARELY HEARD OF IN  ENGLAND.  Suggestion Prom W. A. Jowett Which  "���J- Would Be Well for the Board of  Trade to Consider.  On Various Cereals  WASHINGTON, July 23.���The weather bureau's summary of crop conditions  issued today says: The drouth has been  greatly intensified during the past week  and its area largely increased. Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma and portions  of Nebraska have suffered most, but  the conditions are now critical from the  lake region, Central Ohio valley and  Tennessee to the middle Rocky mountain region, including the greater part  of Texas. Portions of the middle and  .southern Atlantic states continue to  suffer from -excessive moisture, but  very favorable temperatures have been  experienced in these districts and. also  on the Pacific coast. The outlook for  corn is less favorable than at the close  of the previous week. Tn Nebraska,  Kansas, Oklahoma and Missouri early  corn is practically ruined. With early  and abundant rain in these states, late  corn would probably make a half crop  or Ions.  ��� The condition of the crop in Iowa is  more favorable than in the before mentioned states and copious rains with  moderate ���.temperatures_.,wiithin .a--weok  would greatly" improve'prospects for a-  large part, of the crop. In Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Kentucky and Tennessee,  more particularly the western portions  of., the last two named states, corn is  now seriously in need of rain. In Illinois the crop has not yet sustained  great damage, but will be materially  reduced unless the drouth is soon ended.  In the'middle Atlantic states the conditions have .been highly favorable for  corn and its condition is further improved. Moistui-e has caused considerable injury to .winter wheat in the  middle Atlantic states. The .spring  wheat harvest has begun over the'south-  ern portion of the spring- wheat region, where, as a result of premature  ripening, the yield is much impaired.  Over the northern portion, where the  crop is now ripening, its condition continues promising. Harvested oats have  suffered some injury in shuck from  -.moisture in the middle Atlantic state!  and;the unliarvested crop.from prema-  =ture=ripening=in=the=northwestr^whil��::  rust has caused injury in New York  and Pennsylvania. .Good yields are reported from the upper Ohio valley. Haying is nearly finished and a fine crop  has been secured in North Dakota. Minnesota, the lake region, Ohio valley, portions of the middle Atlantic states and  New England. Throughout the central  valleys prospects for apples have, been  reduced and no further improvement is  expected from New England and the  middle Atlantic states. On the whole  the fruit outlook, is not encouraging.  A Chinaman's Protest  HONOLULU. July 16.���The legislature has finished'the business of passing  appropriation bills for which it was  called ir. special session. The amounts  appropriated are largely in excess of  the estimated income. The government  has decided to use for its current financial needs about S235.000 which was put  up by Chinese immigrants who entered  the country under contracts with the  ���republic of Hawaii. Chines**- consul  Yang Wei Pin has made a protest which  he is said to have forwarded to Washington. The money has been lying -idle in  a locn.lbank. It is the deposits .of Chinese who came here to work as plantation laborers, each of whom was required by the old government to put up  $36 as a guarantee that he would do  only plantation work, the money to be  refunded to pay the passage of any who  wanted to go home. The consul feared  that the applicants would no longer he  able to get their money. In reply to  his protest, acting governor Cooper  wrote the consul informing him that  the deposits would be paid to Chinese  entitled to them as formerly.  The Sweltering East.  ST. LOUIS, July 23.���During the past  24 hours eight deaths from the heat and  many prostrations have been reported.  After insufferable heat throughout the  night a cool breeze sprung up this morning and at 10 v.. m. the mercury registered 92, as compared with 100 pesterday.  OMAHA, July 23.���With a record of  nine deaths and 13 prostrations for  Omaha and vicinity for the last 36 hours,-  today opened with a clouded sky and  the mercury registering 82 at 7 a. pi.  DUNHAM-ON-TRENT, Newark, Not-  to., July 9.���To the Editor of The Tribune: In a late copy of The Tribune I  saw .that Nelson" had not had justice  done her iii the pamphlet sent to Glasgow . by the British Columbia government. In my travels in England, I  have found this, to be the-case on all.  sides, people I meet have heard of British Columbia and West Kootenay, and  possibly Rossland, but Nelson, well,  "hardly ever." Baedeker's Guide to  Canada gives a very fair account of  Rossland, but a very poor one of Nelson, and even the C. P. R., although I  do not know that there is any reason  that their officials should wish- to .belittle Nelson, but should think, on the  contrary, they would wish to be fair,  in **. letter sent out "from London  says, "Rossland is the station for the  Kootenay Goldfields," never mentioning  Nelson.  I have written by this mail to Swan-  -nell,  suggesting   something should   be'  done at once by the Board of Trade to  bring  Nelson  prominently- before  the  public at Glasgow.   ,  I saw some time ago that you were  thinking of bringing- out a supplement  to The Tribune. I am sure if you are  getting one. up it would be a most'opportune time, if it could be done at once,  and distributed at Glasgow and Buffalo.  I find people are very anxious to have  reliable information of the Kootenay  district, and although we have had a  setback in London lately, the time will  come, and I think before very long,";  when the country will take its proper'  place in the. London market. I have  just returned from London. They are  at present mad on West Africa. I met  railway men who had been working on  a government line, and found that from  fever, etc., "they lost 25 per cent of the  picked men taken there, and the mortality amongst mining experts is much  greater,.probably four out of five dying.  Contrast this with the beautiful climate  of British Columbia.-'  I think there are already signs that  the public are not taking .the interest  they have done in West Africa, and I  heard that a late company brought out  had only 1 per cent subscribed by the  public and the underwriters were saddled with 99 per cent: The West African,  market is, however, firmly supported by  "Jew money," as it is called on the Exchange, and until this is withdrawn,  ���'West Africa" will continue to look well  on paper. The properties are the wildest of wildcats; men who have been sent  out report on claims they have never  seen,-which is well known byvthos'e in  the inside ring. There is gold.no doubt,  but scarcely anything is known as to  real values, and the titles are generally  defective, having been sold by the nigger^ owners time and again, after the  manner of Manitoba half-breed scrip.  I read with great interest your idea  of railway building in The Tribune last  April. I think some such scheme is the  ^yerj^thing^for^British^Columbia.^Lsup-^  pose it is too much in advance of the  time for anything to be done, but with  proper safeguards and perhaps some  modifications, it would be the very thing  'required.  Mr. Swannell will, no doubt, have a  talk with you as to my ideas for Glasgow. W. A. JOWET.T.-  Another Jingo Demonstration.  LONDON, Jiily 23.���The presentation  of the freedom of the city of London to  lord Milner of Cape ,i*6wn at the Guild  Hall today was '"made ithe occasion of  another "jingo" demonstration in favor  bf the war in South Africa and the policy of the government. Joseph Chamberlain, the colonial secretary, the duke  of Devonshire, president, of the council,  and other cabinet ministers.were among  those on the platform. Lord Milner in  a speech said the compromising of the  settlement of the South African situation by injudicious concessions must  not be thought of. ��� The speaker said  there was an immense difference between stout old burghers of the late republics and the "roving ruffians" harrowing their fellow British subjects of  Care Colony.  angular course 21 miles in length, each  leg of the course ^being seven* miles.

BRYAN AFTER HILL'S SCALP  NEBRASKAN OUT OF THE FIELD  AS A CANDIDATE  But Is in It to Defeat Any Gold Democrat, Particularly New York's  Ex-Governor.  The Tide Has Turned.  LONDON, July 23.���In the house of  lords tonight the marauis of Salisbury  made a pessimistic speech in support  of the finance bill. The premier said:  "The tendency to extravagance is increasing. We have had no choice. AVe  have had to protect ourselves and must  pay the cost. For years publicVopinion  was in favor of a pacific policy, but now  that state of opinion has passed away.  The tide has turned, and who are we  that we should attempt to stem the tide?  If the tide has turned, we shall have to  go with it. We are in the possession  of forces far larger than we can wield."  For the Canada Cup.

Her victory was complete, as she  passed over the line and beat the Cadillac and Illinois by about six minutes.   The race today was over a tri-  NEW YORK, July 23.'���A tremendous  fact on the horizon of national politics  is the admission of David B. Hill to several of his intimate friends, that he intends to make a fight for the Democratic  nomination for president. And the next  most tremendous fact is Mr. Bryan's  statement to. his 'intimate friends that  he will do everything in his power to  prevent Mr. Hill's nomination. This divides, the Democratic party into two  /great camps. Mr. Bryan is convinced  Mr. Hill is the only man capable of organizing a serious opposition to the radical-leadership whicli has'controlled the'  Democracy since; that thrilling and pic-  turesaue week in 1896 when the old  Democratic policy-was deserted at Chi-  cago and the scepter of powei*_ passed  to the united west and south. He is also  satisfied that Mr. Hill is a determined  candidate for the Democratic nomination two years hence. If ever Mr. Bryan was in earnest he is in earnest now  in his opposition to the influence and  ambition of Mr. Hill. He makes no  secret of his hostility and intends to  use his whole influence, to defeat the  New York leader. The opening gun in  the new national fiirht was the Ohio  state convention last- week, controlled  by John R. McLean, who is Hill's friend.  It repudiated "Bryanism." It may surprise those who are not aware of the  real situation to find Mr. Bryan in bitter antagonism lo Mr. n.ij so soon after  the struggle in wliich Mr. Hill supported  the Democratic ticket, biit the facts explain the matter. Two days before the  Kansas City convention Mr. Hill visited  Mr. Bryan at his home in Lincoln, Neb.  It was the first time they had.met since  the memorable campaign of 1896. Mr.  Bryan told Mr. Hill that if the free silver plank was omitted from the party,  platform he would refuse to be a candidate. He declared in the most emphatic  and explicit language that nothing could  induce him to accept the nomination if  the convention failed to reassert the free  silver doctrine. Mr. Hill thereupon went  to Kansas City and did everything in  his power to kill the silver plank. Mr.  Bryan and his friends believe that Mr.  Hill's motive was a desire to be nominated himself. Mr. Bryan has within  the past few days declared that Mr. Hill  supported the Democratic ticket last  year simply because he was a candidate  for the presidency and was compelled  to re-enter the party forces in order to  gain a position of party regularity  which would serve him this year, next  year and the year after in his struggle  for the nomination���that his heart was  not in the campaign, and that he was  really pleased by the defeat of the Democratic candidates. The war between  Mr. Bryan and Mr. Hill promises to lie  the bitterest struggle that has occurred  in the Democratic party in modern  times. Mr. Hill is denounced as a "Corporation Democrat," On the other hand  Mr. Bryan is sneered at by the Hill managers as a leader who has driven almost  every Democrat of substance out of his  party and hr.s placed the Democracy in  the position of an enemy of property  rights and progress.

FROM  PROVINCIAL POINTS  GRAND FORKS FIRE DEPARTMENT  ON DRESS PARADE.,  VICTORIOUS CONSTITUTION  Interesting Budget of News From the  Boundary���-Vancouver Occurrences, Etc, Etc.  Again Proves Her Superiority,  NEW HAVEN, Conn'., July 23.���Again  today the Constitution proved faster  than the Columbia in light airs and fluky  weather. It was the first squadron run  of the New York Yacht Club from Huntingdon to Morris Cove, the trip being  remarkable for the wind, which boxed  the compass completely from the east  northeast to west ' southwest from" 9  o'clock in the morning until 7 o'clock  in the evening. -The racers started out  close-hauled on the starboard tack. The  wind grew free and sheets were eased  broad off. The Constitution crossed the  starting line first at 11:35:35, the Columbia at 11:35-53, the Constitution  having the windward position and  quickly overtaking the large fleet which  had gotten away earlier. The wind was  so light that it barely filled the lower  sails of the big sloops and they seemed  to derive most of their headway from  the club topsails, which were, full when  the, other sails were flapping. As the  wind shifted canvas was trimmed to  meet it. At 1 o'clock, while the Constitution was tacking, the Columbia got a  lucky streak of wind and ran past her,  .getting a lejul of a quarter of a mile.  Her advantage was short-lived, however, for at 1:35 p. m. the wind once  again filled the Constitution's sails and  she glided to tbe front in a wonderful  manner and maintained her lead to the  finish, increasing it constantly. On  elapsed time she won by 5 minutes and  IC seconds and by 4 minutes and 6 seconds corrected time, the length of the  cruise being 23 miles.  Hanged Negro in City Park.  ELKINS, W. Va., Julv 23.���William  Brooks, a negro, was lynched last night  being hanged from the limb of a tree  in the city park. Brooks shot and fatally wounded chief of police Lilly, who  sought to arrest him for creating a disturbance. The negro was chased half  a mile by a. crowd and captured. lis  fought desperately, but could not get  away. Brooks was handed over to the  sheriff to be taken to the county jail.  Just as the sheriff and the negro reached the prison door a mob of_mpn_4Oil.  strong surrounded the officers and demanded the prisoner. The sheriff and  guards refused and made resistance, but  to no avail. Brooks was seized .and rushed through the streets towards the city  park. When the park was reached tinmen who were leading Brooks told him  to walk under a big shade tree in the  center of the park and prepare to die.  Tho negro could not speak and seemed  almost insensible to what was going on.  He was drawn up and in a few minutes  the body swung from the tree lifeless.  Then the mob disappeared. Hundreds  of men and women came later and viewed the body. The body was still hanging at a late hour last night.  GRAND FORKS, July 23.'���[Special to  The TribuneJ���John MacEwen, inspector of the Norwich Union, Toronto,' and  R. W. Douglas, inspector of the' Atlas  and Guardian Insurance Companies, To-'  ronto, are making a tour of the Boun-   *  dary country.    In their honor the fire*,  brigade was called out last evening and  gave an exhibition near the Yale hotel.  Three streams from the hydrants were"  maintained   simultaneously;    and    the  steam fire engine also passed the ;in-    ,  spection  very  creditably.   The  visitors  expressed   themselves  as  well   pleased ���*  with the efficiency of the brigade and'  the protection it affords against fire. Mr.  MacEwen will visit (he various raining'  camps.    He is greatly impressed .with-'"  the   future   of   the   Boundary   district,  which, he said, is becoming very favora-.=  bly known in the east. . -  Fred Lane has sold  his Black Hawk-;  livery stable to J. Anderson, formerly of /.  Huntingdon,    Quebec.    Mr.    Lane  -was",  successful in securing a sub-contract on  ..-  the V.  V.  & E.  railway  between here -  and Cascade. ���l  A music hall will be opened here next ��� -  month.   The initial attraction,will be a'  ladies' orchestra, all the way from San..;,  Francisco.  C. D. Rand of Spokane is here on min- ' -  ing and real estato business." -      ' - *  Nelson,  Wash.,  jubt across  the  line, .- --  is cnjo>ing a boom in view of the.activity in railway building in that vicin- /.  ity.    The business outlook at Cascade, \.  B. C, is also showing marked improve- '-'  ment, due to the same cause.  Colonel XV. C. Haywood of this city  has returned from Franklin camp, north  fork- of Kettle river.    He is greatly im- ,  pressed with the future of that section  and reports that a great deal of devei- ���  opment  work  is  in progress.    Colonel   '  Haywood  has  secured  a  townsite  aud-   '  two valuable water powers near the con-'  fluence of the north fork and east fork  of .Kettle river, 30 miles north of Grand-/ *  Forks.  At the concluding meeting of the Dominion   Day   celebration  committee,   a  sub-committee was appointed to report  on  the cost of acquiring a permanent  race   track.     For   several   weeks   past  commodore   Biden,   T.    Dunham,   Fred ...  Lane and AI Traunweiser, who cousti- ".  tute the committee, have been gathering data.    Several  sites have been inspected and the.selection of a large tract  of land in close proximity to the city  will  be announced  shortly.    Jt is pro-   ,  posed to form an association and leading citizens will be invited to take stock,  payable in small monthly installments.  The plan is to have a half-mile track.    '  An effort will  be made to hold spring  and  fall meetings here.  There are 160 names on the Granby  smelter  payroll.  E. Spraggett's saw mill at Smelter  lake is cutting 40,000 feet a day. A  large part of the output is absorbed in  construction work at the Granby smelter. Tbe_logs_are_floated-down-stream *-  from timber limits on the north fork,  25 miles north of Grand Forks.  \ TJvada Railway Muddle,  SALT LAKE, July 22.���A .special to  the Tribune from Carson, Nevada, says  that judge Hawley in the federal court  today rendered his decision in the. injunction case of the Utah, Nevada &  California Railroad Company (Oregon  Short Line) against the San Pedro, Los  Angeles ���& Salt Lake Company, popularly known as senator Clark's road.  This case "involves the ownership of the  right of way in Nevada, near the Utah  state line, for Which tho two companies  have been contesting for the past three  months, the fight becoming so bitter  that at one time it threatened to result  in open hostilities between the constructing forces of the two lines. Judge Hawley has sustained the injunction in favor  of the Short Line for the 40 miles of the  grade and road in Nevada from the state  line nt Uvada to Clover Junction, but  refused to sustain the injunction as to  the remainder of the route, pending a  decision of the land ofiice as to the  proper maps filed.-  Captain and Crew Killed.  STOCKHOLM, July 23.���An explosion  today of petroleum on board the American schooner Louise Adelaide, captain  Orr, which left Philadelphia April 21  and Portland June 4 for Stockholm, in  the harbor here, resulted in the death  of captain Orr, 10 members of the  schooner's, crew and four Swedish customs officials. Two of the Louise Adelaide's crew were saved. The explosion  set the schooner on fire, and the blazing  petroleum enveloped the vessel and  those on board.  Vancouver Jottings  VANCOUVER, July 23.���H. P. For-  shaw, contractor, fell down two stories  through the elevator shaft in a new  building tbis morning and was seriously  injured.  Captain" J. Reynolds Tite and captain  Duff Stuart left this afternoon for Victoria to make final arrangements for  the provincial rifle meeting to be held  at Clover Point range. There are 105  entries in all, 40 being from the Esquimau navy, 30 from Victoria, and 15  from Nanaimo and vicinity. This is the  largest entry list on record and everything promises a successful meet. Pit-  tendrigh, holder of the Cornwall cup,  will not bo able to defend it, neither  will private Packard of Nelson, holder  of the Westminster cup, be at the meet.  Many of the veteran riflemen have entered.  W. L. Newsome, who returned from  Lytton last night, says there is little  doubt that William Young was murdered. He was camping with two other  men named Cochrane and Taylor and  all had been drinking. An Indian camped a short distance away heard shots  and the next morning Young was found  with three bullets in him, one of smaller  caliber than the other two. The coroner  has gone to investigate.  .  Orangemen in SessioB.  TORONTO, July 23.���The Grand Orange Lodge of British America opened  its sessions here this afternoon. The  grand secretary's report showed a large  increase in the order during the year,  especially in Manitoba and the west.  Thirty-one new lodges were formed. The  total number of* members under the  grand lodge is now over 60,000. In an  address grand master Clark Wallace,  referring to tho coronation oath, said  every brother was proud of the position of members of parliament who opposed the Costisran resolution. While a  large majority of members voted for the  resolution, they do not represent the  views of the Orange association,, who  expect that the successor to the throne  of the empire will be a Protestant and  that our ruler will still continue to be  a defender of the Protestant faith.  j tl  THE  TRIBUTE:  NELSON, B.

The money was  advanced by tlio bank to pay for i:.a-  chiucry and for ordinary operati \g expenses, .".s the Le Roi company I-ad not  sufficient capital of its own to carry on  the legitimate business of the company.  The  Bank   of  Montreal   is  one   of  the  great financial institutions of the world,"  no  othor   bank  in  America  having  as  -   large a paid-up capital and none having  Greater resources.   According to its last  "statement,  made on  June   3d. last,  its  capital   was   $12,000,000   and   its   rest  ?7,'CO0.i>ijO.    It had cash assets of ?39,-  882,22ri.05, of whicli $23,530,628 were call  '  and short loans in Great Britain and the  United   State's.    Its  current loans  and  discounts  amounted   to  the   enormous  total of $58,850,449.34, of which the Le  Roi company owed $530,000, or a hundredth of the total.   From .what source  does the bank derive the enormous sums  that it loans to industrial and commercial companies and enterprises? Its capital and .rest amount to $19,000,000;   it  has 918,184,774.47 on deposit on which  no interest is paid; its note circulation-  amounts to only $0,482,214.    But it has  ��51,501,853.13 of deposits bearing interest.    This enormous sum is the aggre-  catc of the savings of workingmen and  other poor people in Canada who have  confidence in the bank, and who make  the bank directors their trustees. .The  directors of the bank loan this money  to industrial enterprises like the Le Roi.

Presentation to the King  LONDON,  July  23.���Much  gossip   in  American and English society has been  caused by the presentation to king Ed-  v/ard yesterday by some American ladies of the hospital ship Maine commit-  1ce of a  medal commemorative of the  Maine's work with a recti est that the  king transmit the medal to queen Alexandra.    It seems that the idea was opposed by a number of influential members  of the  committee  on the ground  that the king did not want the medal,  hut  the others carried  the day.    The  king's   reply   to   the   delegation   which  made the presentation is causing some  comment, as he thanked "this American  committee" for their "loyal, dutiful sentiments," "as he did the Kansas legislature in answering their telegram of condolence on the queen's death and as he  also thanked the committee for bringing their valuable services to a culmination by presenting the ship to the government, whereas this was done solely  hy Bernard H.

It goes to show that prosperity has resulted in New Ontario from  the manufacture in New Ontario of the  natural resources of New Ontario. It  is worthy of perusal by all "classes of  our people. No part of Canada has  greater and more . varied natural resources than British Columbia, but it is  impossible to get a'government in power big enough to grasp the situation.  The Globe article is as follows:  P. J. Loughrin, who was formerly general organizer in the Dominion of Canada for the Federation of Labor, came  to town yesterday, after an extended  tour in the north country. It'will be remembered'that some five years ago.Mr.  Loughrin strongly advbcatd in the press  and on the public platform the "policy of  putting export duties on pulpwood, pine  logs and. nickel ore, and the formation  of regulations forbidding the export of  these materials unless in a manufactured  condition.- During his recent tour Mr.  Loughrin, who was intimatelyAcquainted with the Algoma of foiir years ago,  made a comparison of the country as  it then, was with the situation today.  "The transformation is marvelous," said  he. "Four years .ago the Soo was a  town of. 3000 people; today it has at  least 8000. Four years ago Blind River,  had 210 people; now it has; 1100, and the  increase of population, was directly due  to the-prohibition of the export of logs.-  "The J3ruee mines have been opened up,  and there are 450 men-there now mining  copper. The population of Thessalon is  2300, an increase of- 500' in 'foiir years.  Victoria Mines four years ago was a  primeval forest; now, as'"the; result of  . the establishment of Ludwig Monti's  nickel works, it is a town of 1*100 people. Copper Cliff and' Sudbury have  doubled in poulation, very largely asa  result of the policy which has induced  them:to refine the nickel to tho extent  of.80'..-pec cent, whereas formerly, the  ma-tie was shipped out entirely unrefined. Cook's mills are running again  night and day. At Rayside, Dean Lake  and Thessalon River new .saw mills have  been erected, giving employment in the  (Aggregate to hundreds of men. Sturgeon  Falls is becoming a fine town, and the  railway from' North Bay to the Temis-  kaming has at last been bogun. The  future of Mattawa is assured, for its  resources in pulpwood are the best in  Canada, the -upper Ottawa being tributary.  "Now, what has done all this? Simply the logical carrying out of the policy of manufacturing our own re  sources in our own country, and finding  employment for the surplus labor that  was so much in evidence in 1897.

Yet  because I advocated the manufacture  of our own resources on our- own soil  by our own people, Mr. Gompers of the  American Federation of Labor withdrew  my so-called commission as organizer.  The reason he gave was that I was advocating something that would be detrimental to the laboring class south of  the line. Looking at these facts, I make  the claim that Canadians should attend  to their own industries and industrial  organizations. If the trackmen in tho  present difficulty would tell Gompers  and Wilson that they are capable of  obtaining more wages by. applying individual.!*/ to the local superintendent,  and did not need the services of a Yankee, controlled committee, they would  be better off. I am no judge of men  if Mr. McNicoll complies with the track-  jncn's demands so long as they seek  ������euognltifln through these parties.  "The Increase in wages in the past  four years in northern Ontario- has not  cost the labor class one two-cent postage stamp. B. B. Eddy, F. H. \Clergue,  the Laurentide Pulp Company, and the  policy of the Ontario government in  forcing the manufacture of raw material in Canada, did more to increase  the wages of laborers in the north  country in three months than all the  paid officers of the American Federation will do in the next Ave years."

The  .meeting was not convened until a late hour  and .was in session for a considerable time.  Among those present was J .Roderick Robertson of the London & British Columbia  Gold Fields, captain Gifford of the Silver  King mine, George Alexander of Kaslo,  Paul Johnson of the Greenwood smelte"r,  S. F. Parish of the B. C. mine, H. B.  Alexander of the Ruth mine at Sandon,  George AV. Plughes and P. D.

Parker of Phoenix, VV. Pf. Aldridge of the C. P. R. smelter at. Trail, W. PI. Sandiford of the Bosun  mine at New Denver, and Alfred Garde of  the Payne mine. After the meeting thoso  in attendance to the number of thirty were  fcanqueted' at  the Phair by JV Roderick J  William. R.   Ramsdell,   who  represented  Flathead county; Montana, for two terms  in the state senate and. who for a number  of  years  was  prominent   in   both  mining  and political circles in that state, is in the  city, registered from San Diego, California,  For the past two years he has been mining in Lower California. "Early, last spring  I heard of a property in the state of Jalisco,  near Guadalajara,"  he said.  "I immediately   bought   it.   It   was   in- a   very  old district. Some of the properties, tradition says, have been working for over threo  hundred years.  I found a country ncv,- in  the sense of not having any foreign capital    and no machinery of modern pattern  or   methods   for   working  its   mines.   The  common system of handling ores in that  section is the  'patco,' which Is a chlorin-  ation process in which salt is thrown into the ore and tramped by mules, bringing  tho   salt  in   contact-with   all   the   metals  which forms a chloride.  Then quicksilver  is   thrown   in   and   the   same   process   of  tramping  and   beating  is   continued.   Tho  amalgam is then retorted, which gives the  product  in  its  pure  state.   They  save  by  this crude process from 50 to 70 per cent  of the values in their ores. Wages in this  district is 50 cents per day,  Mexican  silver.   While   there  I  let  several   contracts  for drifting and  tunnel  work  at  from  70  cents to $1.40 per foot,  the. latter was for  hard   rock   which   had   to   be   handled  500  feet.  As  far as efficiency goes I  consider  Mexican   labor   about   two-thirds   that. of  white   labor,   and   in. many   instances ��� of  handling   heavy   loads. or   using   wheelbarrows  tho Mexicans will  do even  more  than the white man. So far as I have been  able to see, Mexican mining laws are better than our own. They do not split hairs  over technical quibbles, but their statutes  are   plain,    straightforward   and   sensibly  administered. No court pretends to go Into  the uncertain and confusing intricacies of  the apex and  the side lines,  but a claim  can hold only what a government surveyor,   ln  case  of contest,  can  show  is  contained   in   a   surface   right   with   vertical  lines   runing   into   depth."- Mr.   Ramsdell  was   reticent   about   speaking   about   his  property, but said:  "The mines we bought  have been w;orked for over;,threc hundred  years and several  hundred-thousand  tons  of ore have been exposed. We have formed  a company  to., put  in  a modern  plant  to  work oyer the ores  the natives, have left  on the dumps and.in the mines. The value  of this ore is double .that of many large  TELEPHONE 27  EC.    _B-__~2E_e*S   cfe  OO.  Store, Corner Baker and Josophino Sltea  PAINTS, OILS /\ND GLASS.  GARDEN  TOOLS.
