Thursday's sale of town lots in New
Denver recalls the stirring'times in the
spring of 1S'92 when the lots in that
townsite were first ordered for sale by
tho government, and when New Denver
was looked-upon, as the coming .center
fi, of-the Slocan, .which was soon to have
'a population.'.equal'.to that of the Colorado city after which it was named.
New Denver.was first known as Eldorado, but by the time the government
was ready to rope in real estate investors the name had been changed to New
Denver.     Nelson   was   not   much   of   a
[' place in point of size at this time, but
its' people thought they saw a chance
to make a turn over in the.government
sale of New Denver lots and accordingly
they held a meeting in the Hudson Bay
store to determine upon a line of action. This was attended hy John A.
Turner, who at the time was manager
for the Hudson Bay Company in this
city, A. H. Buchanan, manager of'the
Bank of Montreal. Mr. Daly, who- was
then manager of the'Bank of British Columbia, F. W.'Valleau, who is at present
mining recorder for the Oniineca district, Leonard Craig, Harold Selous,
Claiide Hainber, H. B. Ashby, D. B. Bogle, and others who havesinco been forgotten in the changes whicli time has
.wrought. As a result of the meeting it
was decided to send H. B. Ashby to New
■Denver.--to.■'.represent', the Nelson purchasers. There was quite a discussion
as to whether the agent should be y.iid
a lump sum or "a consideration upon
sales ior his serviceSj hut in the end
Mr. Ashby had his own way and a commission upon purchases was decided
upon. The only thins remaining to be
done was to place a limit upon the price
of the lots beyond which the agem
should not go. It was generally.agreed
that tlie agent should have plenty o:
scope and a limit of ?250 per lot was
named more- as a matter of form than
anything else.' Mr. Ashby attended tlio
sale; hut did not succeed in, landing a
single lot -for.,.his 'principals,' as every
•-'"•Jet which he considered desirable was
run up 'away beyond his limit, some
of them going as high as ?G0. As a
result, many of the intending Nelson
purchasers were mad with Ashby for
not getting them in on the ground flooi
■ of New Denver's prosperity and Ashby
was fully as mad with himself for having insisted upon a commission upon
purchases instead of a straight amount,
for expenses. , Reference to' the.- prices,
bid at the first sale will-not come amiss
in comparison with the prices realized
on Thursday for some of the same lots
upon which those who bid them in' h.
the first instance did not complete theii
purchases. It will show that those" whe
neglected'to meet either their ■deferred
payments and their taxes came out muel
better than those who did, even afte;
their loss by the forfeiture of their firs'
0 payment has been taken'into.; account ,
The  price realized . at  Thursday's  sal-
for the 19 lots sold was ?2195, wherea.
the same lots at the sale of 1892 wero
down, which amounted in itself to more
than the total amount bid on Thursday.
At Thursday's sp.le Messrs. ■ Gethin**-
& Henderson secured lots 1 and 2 in
block G for $210, while nine years before they had-bid $455 for the saiu*-
property. Donald McLachlin also made
money by waiting,'as he get lot 4 in
the same block for $105, whicli he had
previously bid $325 for. The lot next
to this was bought in by Henry Stege
for $105. It was originally purchased
by John R. Cook, one of the pioneers of
the Toad Mountain camp, for $430.
Among the other old-timers whose
names appear in the original list of
• pui-chasers whose lots were offered for
sale on Thursday were colonel Wharton,
whose advent into the Slocan was heralded as the sign of rapid advancement.
He was associated with J. R. Cook and
F. T. Kelly in his purchases. They bid
in lots at $1370 in 1892 which this week
sold for $515. To Robert E. Lemon, the
present warden of the provincial jail,
belongs the honor of having paid the
highe'st price for any single lot at the
original sale. He wanted lot 12 in block
12 and wanted it badly, so that the
price did not cut much figure. He bid
it in at $675 and on Thursday Harry
Sherran got the lot for one bid over the
upset pf $105, Of aU the lots sold on
Thursday there was but one on which
the government came out ahead. This
was lot 10 in block 14. It was the cheapest lot-sold in 1892, bringing but $110,
or but $5 more than it brought this
week.  '
Tne Tuhsrculosis Congress
LONDON, July 2G.—At the final meeting of the tuberculosis convention under
the presidency of lord Derby resolutions
were adopted in fa,vor of legislation toward suppression of expectoration in
public places and recommending notification of the proper authorities in
cases of phthisis, and the use of pocket
spittoons, asserting that these sanitary
provisions would be indispensable in order to diminish tuberculosis. A resolution was adopted expressing the opinion of the congress that the health officers should continue the effort to prevent the spread of tuberculosis through
milk and meat, and that as a doubt
concerning human immunity from bo
vine tuberculosis, raised by Dr. Koch,
was of vital importance to the public
health and the agricultural interests of
the country, the government should Institute a rigid inquiry into the identity
of human and bovine tuberculosis. Other
resolutions passed indorsed the educational work of the national societies
toward the prevention of tuberculosis
and invited legislation in support of
this work. The appointment of a permanent international committee to collect evidence, publish literature and recommend means for the prevention of tuberculosis was advocated. The members
of t.he committee are to be named by the
various governments from national societies.
The Welcome Rain,
WASHINGTON, July 26.—The past 24
hours probably have been the most favorable to, the states of the corn belt
since the existing hot wave began nearly 40 days ago. - Rains generally, light in
amount have fallen in Western Kansas,
Western Nebraska, Southwestern Missouri, Central Missouri, Arkansas and a
little in Oklahoma, and the prospects
seem to be favorable for a continuation
tomorrow of more numerous showers in
the section covered by these states and
territories. On Sunday showers are
looked for . in Northern Illinois and
Northern Indiana. Still there has been
no general, rain of which the crops stand
in so much need and there are no immediate prospects of any.
through Trains to Nelson.
SPOKANE, July 26.—It was officially
announced yesterday that the passenger
trains on the Kootenay- Valley railroad
would be discontinued August 1st. Passenger service north from Northport
will be resumed and passengers from the
Kootenay country will be forwarded by
way of Nelson. Nelson will thus have a
through service from Spokane ; instead
of the mixed train which is'now run
from Northport to "Nelson arid other
British Columbia points. This service
was in effect once before, but for some
reason was discontinued by the com-:
pany. - The patrons of the ■ road have
ever since been clamoring for its re-establishment.

• Entire Province in Revolt.
VICTORIA, July 26.—Advices by the
steamer Duke of Fife from the Orient
included details of the uprising in Manchuria. • Refugees from the affected district aro reaching Chee Foo and the
Japan Mail says -they report the whole
province -of Shing King in' a state;-of
' iusurr.eution. Rebels are pillaging, burning and killing around Moukden. All
the villages and harnjets have been
burned and hundreds of tho inhabitant*;
.who offered resistance havo been killed.
The Russian forces are insufficient to
maintain order in Southern Manchuria.
At Nan Tung, in the, southeast of Shing
King, the insurgents are daily developing strength. They now number several,
thousand and. have .possession of' Kiu-
lien Ching, as well as Nan Tung.. The
effects of the disturbance are felt even
in Wiju, beyond, the Manchurian frontier. The Russian garrison in 7 Fen
Chang does not seem sufficient to cope
with the movement and reinforcements
will have to' be sent from -Port Arthur
.or Moukden, an operation requiring
time. A great number of Chinese, men
and women,- are reported to have .fled
from Ta Tung to Chee Foo,.the insurgents /having brought the former place
within the sphere of their operations.
Chang. Tien is continually gaining
strength and it is believed' that there
is practically no' government in Manchuria. The Chinese insurgents crossed
the border, but were driven back by tho
Korean troops, the Chinese, losing 12
men. The number of men assembled at
Nan Tung is some 3000 and the inhabitants of Yalu are much perturbed, being
apprehensive of an insurrection across
the Yalu. This intelligence suggests
that there are two bodies of insurgents.
Fugitives arriving in Chee Foo give serious accounts of the sta.te of affairs.
They represent the whole of Shing King
as in a state of unrest, even to the gates
of Moukden. They declare that Russia
has not sufficient force to preserve order. The, Japanese consul at Chee Foo
in his report to the government states
that the pirates who recently appeared
along the coast of Shan Tung and Lia
Tung were pursued by a Chinese government transport and a number of
them were decapitated by the kao tai
of Chee Foo, and in conseauence these
places were liberated from practical depredations. The Russians have dispatched a force from Hai Chang to attack the
insurgents. .News was also received that
an organization called the Valage Union
-ienchuan Hai, have risen in five districts lying north of Pao Ting Fu. The
French troops have discovered that the
insurgent forces who now .have, their
headquarters at Yen Chew number 20,-
000, mostly disbanded soldiers and Box-
London Drenched.
LONDON, July 26.—A thunderstorm,
accompanied by hail and incessant lightning, raged for- a couple of hours in
London this afternoon. The streets were
turned into rivers. The water, overflowing the sidewalks, entered dwellings
and poured down every opening. The
underground railroad was flooded and
trains were stopped. The storm flooded
Mrs. Langtry's new theater, the Imperial. A number of public buildings were
damaged. The crops in the country surrounding London were laid low and the
telegraph wires torn down. Several suburban transportation lines were temporarily blocked as a result of the downpour, the water in some cases reaching
over the footboards of the trains.
CLEVELAND, July 26.—Amid the enthusiastic cheers of nearly 10,000 people Cresceus, the world's champion trotting stallion, again demonstrated that
he is the "peer of all trotters, by trotting
a mile this afternoon over the Glenville
track in 2:02 3-4. This establishes a
new world's trotting record for both
sexes, replacing the former world record
of 2:03 1-4 held by The Abbot. Owing
to the heavy rains of last night the
track was not in the best of condition
today and it was about 6:30 p. m. before
the track was deemed to be in sufficiently good shape to warrant making
the attempt. At that time the sun's
heat had been replaced by cool breezes.
Even then there were few horsemen
who looked for a mile better than 2:05.
After having been given several preliminary miles, George Ketchum came
out with the stallion to attempt what
seemed an impossible feat. Ketchum
nodded for the word on the third score,
the horse trotting like a machine. Accompanied by a runner, the chestnut
cstallion fairly flew to the quarter, the
timers' watches registering just 30 seconds. As Cresceus swung into the back
stretch he was joined by a second runner and although many predicted, that
the footing was such as would retard
his speed, he reached the half in 1:01.
As the time was' hung out the immense
crowd broke out in cheers. The three-
quarter Dole was reached in 1:31 3-4,
and as the great stallion trotted into
the stretch! a'runner on eithe*-.side. his
frictionless, machine-like stride was
fairly eating up the distance. Never
once faltering, notwithstanding the terrific clip, he fairly flew to the wire, not
being touched once by the whip, his
sole urging being the driver's voice and
the thundering hoof beats' of the accompanying runners.. As the time for the
mile was anounced, 2:02 3-4, and the
immense crowd realized.that-a new record had been established Ketchum-and
his favorite stallion received an ovation
such as has been seldom witnessed on a
race track. Thousands of enthusiastic
people rushed on the track.
A Rich Strike in the North.
SEATTLE, July 26.—The steamship
Nome City arrived yesterday morning
from Nome. Passengers report a rich
strike, in the Fairhaven district, 90 miles^

Papal Candidates.
ROME, July 26.—Although the pope
is in excellent health, the feeling prevails at the Vatican that a meeting of
the college of cardinals cannot be far
off, and it is no secret that the candidates to the papacy are making elaborate preparations for this conclave. One
of the chief characteristics of the next
conclave, according to' a high prelate,
will be the large number of candidates
for the chair of St.'Peter. A first scrutiny is expected to show six or seven-
cardinals favorites ■ for the pontificate!:
Those who are well, informed anticipate

;PITTSFIELD, Mass., July 26—At the
opening of court today in the Fosburg
trial judge Stevens instructed the jury
to bring in a verdict of not guilty and
this was  done,  ending the trial.,   The
jurymen had not left their seats.   The
verdict was received with shouts of applause,   wliich  the court, immediately
suppressed.    The .demonstration,-'-'- however, was one of the most elaborate that
^has ever occurred in a court of justice.
Judge Stevens, in ordering the jury to
bring  in  a  verdict of acauittal,  said:
"Mr. Foreman aud gentlemen:    During
six days we have listened to a painful
recital of one of the saddest tragedies
ever presented to a jury.    A beautiful
girl just budding info womanhood was
shot down and her  brother has  been
accused of the crime.   The government
has endeavored to prove that the girl
.was not shot by burglars;  it. has endeavored to exclude all'other'members
of the family from the affair, and, third,
- to prove that the shot was fi.ed by her
brother, Robert S.  Fosburg.    The trial
has proceeded somewhat in the form of
an   inquiry   and   has   been   tried   with
great pains on the part of the government p.nd the defense.' There has been
a.desire to obtain proof, and so a great
deal  of  evidence  has   been  introduced
and admitted without objection which
might  hr.ve   been   excluded   under   the
strict rules of the law.   I think I might
also say to you that it is due to, this
chief of police,  who  has stood  behind
"this  prosecution, that,  in  the  view of
the court, he has tried to do his duty
with  a single eye to  ascertaining the
truth.    Now,  Mr.  foreman and gentlemen, a motion has been made that this
case   be  taken   from   the  jury   and   it
becomes my duty to say to you that in
the  opinion   of  the court  the  government has not-furnished proofs to-sustain a-verdict of guilty against the defendant, and, therefore, under the direction of the -court in the indictment of_
Robert...S._ Fosburg-for-killing..his sisr~
*tcf,' yo'ii- will  return  a  verdict at', not"
guilty."    In  the courtroom,  which  included  hundreds of friends  of the defendant, the crowd broke into loud applause,   which   the   court   immediately
quelled'by sternly raising lis finger and
cbmmahding:the sheriff, to see that the
demonstration was-not repeated. Robert
Stead F6sburg,; the defendant, was then
ordered to stand while the foreman of
the jury was asked:   "What is your verdict?"; The   reply   was:   "Not   guilty."
Judge Stevens then in official words expressed his thanks to the jury for their
careful consideration of the case during
its presentation to them.    Young Robert Fosburg was then discharged from
custody and the court adjourned.    The:
great. crowd then rushed  to shake the
hand of the smiling young man and it
was  several minutes before the courtroom -was cleared.
: The case of young Fosburg, thus happily ended, is one that has attracted,
more than usual interest. - Some six
monts ago the residence of the senioi
field, Mass., was entered by burglars
shortly after the family had retired foi
the night. One of- the inmates hearin*.
the marauders raised an alarm which
aroused tlie entire family. The elder
Fosburg was the flrst to encounter the
burglars, but was quickly joined by his
son, In the scuffle that ensued shots
were fired and Miss May Fosburg fell
dead as a result. The burglars escaped
and the unfortunate incident would have
then closed had it not been for the over-
zealousness of the detectives. Young
fosburg had been seen in Pittsfield late
in the night, drinking, and a theory of
the mistaken sleuths' that it was possible for him while intoxicated to have
fired the fatal shot led to the charges
being preferred against him for murder.
The best legal talent of the state has
been employed on the case and the result has proved how easily detectives
can be deceived.
by 10 o'clock this, Friday, evening.   Mr.
Kennan was  not allowed  to leave  his
room in the interim, but he was courteously treated.   This action by the Russian authorities is taken under the law
giving the minister of the interior authority to eject objectionable characters.
The   notice  served  upon   Mr.   Kennan
characterized him as untrustworthy politically.   Mr. Kennan has informed the
United States minister to Russia. Charlemagne Tower,  of this action  of the
Russian authorities, but has not asked
Mr. Tower to intervene in the matter.
Mr. Kennan in 1891 published a series of
articles reflecting on Russian methods
of treating- poltical and other prisoners
in Siberia.
.;.■   Asked to Repudiate Unionism.
PITTSBURG, July 26.—The National
Tube Works Company at McKeesport
has made an unexpected move intended
to checkmate the Amalgamated Association. Their skilled workmen have been
asked to sign individual contracts to
practically repudiate any labor union
and they have been given but a short
time to think it over. It Is said that
should they not sign the contracts they
will find their positions vacant. It
transpires today that late on Thursday
evening 600 welders of the mills were
paid off and taken into the office of the
general superintendent, where they were
presented with individual contracts to
be signed for at least a year. Some demurred, while others signed the contracts. This movement, fighting fire
with fire, carried consternation into the
ranks of the strikers. The welders are
highly skilled workmen and with their
co-operation the big mills would not
be closed down. With them in line the
plants will probably keep on running,
as though nothing had" happened. It
was intimated tonight by friends of the
welders that they would all sign the

heavy rain fell here early today and
more is in prospect. The heated term
in the southwestern corner of Missouri
was broken by the rain and high winds.
Philippine Government.
MANILA, July 26.—The charter.of Manila was discussed at a public session
of the Philippine commission today. It
contains no provision for elections, as
the latter would be regarded as a dangerous experiment .with the heterogenous population. It believes ..that the
legislature and executive authorities
should be vested in a board of three, appointed by the governor. The secretary
of the board is the city clerk. The assessor and collector will have charge of
the valuation and assessment of real estate, which will be taxed annually at
two per cent. All receipts will be deposited with the insular treasurer.
Governor general Taft will appoint the
first heads of the municipal departments,
but the municipal board will appoint
their successors. The commission will
make appropriations on the estimates
of the municipal board and the insular
government will contribute towards the
support of the city, the estimated cost
of which is $1,500,000 per annum.

FAIRMOUNT, W. Va., July 26.—Fon-
tain Gordian, a negro, shot and killed
Belle Campbell and fatally wounded
Mattie Simpson, both white, at Monon-
gah yesterday afternoon and ran away.
He was later arrested and is in jail here,
but he may be lynched at any moment.
Belle Campbell kept a miners' boarding
house and the shooting was the result
of a dispute over a board bill claimed
to be long overdue.
Parole of the Youngers.
By the new parole laws of Minnesota,
the Younger brothers, principals with
the James brothers in robbing the bank
at Northfleld in 1876, have been released
after 25 years of imprisonment. They
have paid a frightful penalty for their
crime. A sister's love has battled for
the law, which may now free them, for
the last 15 years. This devotion has
been supported by senator Stephen B.
Elkins of West Virginia, who has repeatedly in the last five years given his
influence in favor of the parole of the
GRAND FORKS, July 26.—[Special to
The Tribune.]—Word has been received
here from Toronto that the directors of-
the Dominion Copper Company, owning
the Brooklyn and Stemwinder groups at
Phoenix, at a recent meeting in Toronto
decided to locate their proposed 600-ton*
smelter in Grand Forks.   There is a^site
adjoining the Granby smelter, and another site across the Kettle river, opposite the Granby plant, is also available.
Although-no aid was suggested, it is supposed tnat-the city will offer to provide
the site and possibly will grant a cash
bonus.   The sentiment in favor of aiding the proposed  enterprise  ia  unanimous and definite terms will  be submitted to the Dominion Copper Company within a few days.    It is significant
that Mackenzie & Mann, who are largely
interested  in the Brooklyn and  Stem-_
winder, have located a branch of the>V.~
V. & E. railway from Phoenix to a point
near  Grand   Forks   and   have   already

Mining Notes From Ainsworth."" '
AINSWORTH,   July "26.—[Special   to
The Tribune.]—"The  Big Tunnel,"} as
everyone here calls it, is now in a dis-r
tance of over 1700 feet, and is probably
the longest funnel in the province.'' A
Tribune   representative   went   through?
the workings today under the guidance
of Maxwell Stevenson, under whose direction the'work cf the Highlander M.   ■*
& M. Co. is being carried on.   The tunnel, which is being driven by. compressed,
air 'supplied   by   the  patent  hydraulic
plant on Coffee creek, reflects credit 'bii_
Mr. Stevenson iajnd^Jhis staff..^.It.^as"*
ttegun -two years' ago*~fo* cross-cut* ,the '
various iedges on the_ Highlander, arid
runs straight as a string from mouth to
face. Five weeks ago what is known
as the Highlander vein was encountered,
1570 feet from the tunnel mouth at an
approximate depth of 1200 feet, proving
to be 60 feet between walls. The vein
matter is a mineralized quartz, carrying
where cut by the tunnel a paystreak
nearly five feet in thickness. On this
a drift is in progress, und the ore has
been followed for 100 feet to the south,
its width varying fiom two to five feet.
The face of the drift at present shows
three and a half feet of ore. This ore
is a galena of fine appearance, averaging, the manager states, well above
the pay limit.
No ore will be taken out for the present, it being the intention to proceed
with development until October, when
it is probable that large reserves of oie
will be blocked out The ore, which
will all go to the mill, will concentrate,
two into one. In the meantime'a siis-
ji*xe_tramway to the jnill_will_be_jn-
stalied. ThTfuistance is 700 feet and the
grade 30 per, cent.
The tunnel is now being driven to cut
the "Mamie lead," so called from its
first discovery on the adjoining claim,
which bears that name. It is expected
that this vein will be cut within a week,
as calculations indicate that it is not
more than 30 feet from the present face
of the tunnel, which is being driven' at
the rate of five feet a day. The Mamie
lead, where opened up on the surface
of the Highlander, is larger and gives
assay returns fully equal to the Highlander vein, making it probable that its
development at the depth of 1300 feet,
which will be obtained in the tunnel,
will show something fully equal to the
fine ore shoot of the Highlander mine.
Seventeen men are employed in the
tunnel and drift, two shifts working on
the drills and three shifts handling the
It is reported that work will shortly
begin on the No. 1, an Ainsworth property which has produced considerable

Happenings in Vancouver.
VANCOUVER, July 26.—[Special to
The Tribune.]—The wages of Canadian
Pacific blacksmiths have been raised
from three to seven cents per hour. An
attempt was made to include Nelson and
Trail in the special schedule, but this
was disallowed.
News has been received in a telegram
from Skeena that a big run of fish had
started there and canneries are filling
up fast.
The Indians of Kishpieaxe village are
putting in a telephone system from Ha-
zelton to that village.
The Dominion government assay office was opened this afternoon.
Pedigo, the witness employed by Ed
Gold in the recent cases against holders
of saloon licenses, has made affidavit in
whicli he swears that his evidence in the
cases was largely perjury and the result
of a conspiracy to close up certain saloons.
T. G. Holt, formerly a partner of
Mackenzie & Mnnn. has brought suit
against Thomas Dunn for recovery of

Will the blue-ruin shouters in  British Columbia tell the people why  this is thus? The Tribune is of opinion  that the Payne mine is yet a good property, even if it was unloaded on suckers  at Montreal for three times its value;  but it was "gutted" in order ��� to pay  enormous dividends so as to make a  sale. Once sufficient development work  is done so that-shipments can be re-  ���-sumed and kept on a reasonably steady  basis, the Payne shareholders will again  get regular dividends. But how about'  the Republic? Was it also "gutted" in  order to pay dividends? or has the values in its ore disappeared altogether?  > i  L  7   The Mine Owners' Association Memo-  ,. rial  to  the  Dominion  government had  ���better. ne*-er  been penned.    This view  was taken by several  members of the  ���{association when it was considered and  '{adopted.    At  the  last   meeting  of  the  .association an effort was  made to reconsider its adoption, but failed because  .of the stand taken by the Rossland members, one of whom is its author.    That  it will have no effect on future legislation  is  now admitted.    Premier Duns-  ' mii.ii* and attorney general Eberts presented the case of the.province at Ottawa last January, and it was done in a  very able manner.   The facts presented  re-fardins   taxation   could   not   be   disputed, and had they been presented by  men in political accord with the Laurier government,-they might have borne  frr.it.  < The same methods were used to unload the Payne mine in the Slocan and  >    the Republic mine in Republic on Eastern Canadian speculators.    Both  were  unloaded   at  a  good  margin   of  profit  to  Patsey  Clark  of  Spokane  and  his  partners in the one instance and A. W.  ^flcGune of Sr.lt Lake and his partners  in the other.   Those who purchased the  shares, have not made money, however,  in either case.   And right here is where  the' shoe pinches.    The.

Nelson is the one place  between Winnipeg and the Coast at  which a regatta can be successfully  held. The stretch of water is unequalled; the weather in the fall is perfect; transportation facilities are exceptionally good; and hotel accommodations are ample. It is now up to our  people to do their part. The Nelson  Boating Club has done the work laid  out for it to do. Our people' should  _show_the_people_of_Portland_andJVicto^  ria and Vancouver that no mistake was,  made by their respective boat clubs  when Nelson was unanimously selected  as a fitp lace at which to hold the chief  annual aauatic event of the North Pacific Coast.  The tailor-made misfit who edits Bernard McDonald's newspaper at Rossland  calls on the people of Nelson to drive  John Houston off the face of the earth,-  for daring to say that a man who has  passed the age of sixty years, who is  penniless and friendless, if sent across  the dark river painlessly, is not in need  of mock sympathy from anyone. When  Mr. McDonald's hired-man is not vapid  he is rabid. *  this charming noblewoman has set to  work to earn her living. She is meeting with success in a line wholly new  in London���that of furnishing and re-  renting apartments. She is by all means  the most accomplished person in this  line in London. She leases a flat and  furnishes it with the exuuisite taste for  which she is renowned. Paragraphs appear in the society journals describing  and praising the art and beauty of her  apartment. Then she lets it at a high  figure to people who like to bask in an  atmosphere created by a member of the  nobility. Lady Essex has made quite  a snug sum in the past year by this  means, and has furnished and leased a  number of apartments at fancy figures.  When she first started in business, she  lacked executive ability and capacity to  keep accounts. Some of the furnishers  and upholsterers descended upon the  apartments and seized the effects, leaving the sub-tenants carpetless and bed-  less. This was entirely due to lady Essex's inexperience and to the fact that  slie kept no memoranda of when payments were due. Lately, however; everything has been running smoothly and  her clients have been more comfortable.  Another. method by which lady Essex  keeps the pot a-boiling is by chaperoning "paying guests" into society. This  business is one which has a good many  patrons from America.

The untrained big man will beat the  untrained little man at fisticuffs or in a  wrestling match, but in trained armies  weight tells for very little, remarks the  London Spectator. So long as their  armies were recruited "from the cities  and villages of Italy the small-limbed  Romans defeated the large-limbed Germans in almost every encounter, and  this, although the men of the forest  were hunters, lived in open air, and  ate, it is always assumed, quantities of  meat.

It was after  Rome had enlisted the big barbarians  in scores of thousands that her standards went back in battle. The slight  and pallid Saracen drove the picked soldiers of Europe out of Palestine. If  armor is any test, the heroes of the  Middle Aees were compartively littla  men.

bor. The Zede was towed a certain dis-
tanco from Toulon and then proceeded
alone. She entered the harbor submerged, eluded all the warships and signal stations, planted a dummy torpedo
on the bottom of the biggest battleship
and escaped without detection. Experts

as one of grave suggestiveness, possibly
rendering the maneuvers of 1901 historical, as marking a revoltion .in naval

The reported engagement of Winston
Churchill, the well-known young Englishman, to lady Helen Stewart is one
of the chief topics in London society.
Lady Helen Stewart is the only daughter of the marciuis of Londonderry. She
is a handsome girl, with a talent for
acting, and is the companion and comrade of her mother, whose place she
takes .is hostess owiiig to the delicate
health of the marchioness. She and

The crowning *bf emperor Francis Joseph next year at Prague" as king of
Bohemia will be an incident of considerable -interest from a sentimental and
historical point of view. It will mark
the re-establishment of an ancient kingdom which once ranked among the
great power of Europe. It will mark,
also, the transformation of the composite and polyglot dual realm into a
triple realm. Once more the storied city
of Prague will be a royal residence,
and, after many years, the Czechs will
be able again to call themselves a- nation, '"he act will generally-be regarded as a just and graceful one, too long
deferred, yet none the less welcome. It
is probable that credit for it is to be
given to the venerable kaiser himself,
who, by the simple force of his personal influence, has so long held together a: vast and discordant empire.
Bohemia has been for many years only
a province of the Austrian-Hungarian
empire, with its own governor—count
Carl Coudenhove—but with no legislative body.

Thurman returnerl n-i Thursday  night from a trip to San Francisco, visiting Portland and Seattle en route. He met  quite a number of old Canadian acquaintances, and all are holding good positions  and doing well. They display much more  energy than they did when In Canada,  and seem to be able to successfully com-  iete with the natives of the Republic. San  Francisco Is a great city and very lively.

There was not sufficient timo yesterday to have the- ore assayed for silver ���  Full particulars of the strike have not yet  been received.  The Montreal syndicate which Is developing the big Iron ledge in the vicinity of  Kitchener continues to make good pro- .  .gress and there is every likelihood that  tho next payment of $10,000, which falls  due on the first of next month, will be met  as there is a good gamble on the property  so far as the work has progressed. Tne  syndicate may not have had sufficient time  to demonstrate the value of the ledge as  en Iron deposit, but it is so strong that  tho indications are that if it has not the  values desired as an iron ledge it will be  found to be of even greater value as carrying other minerals under Its heavy iron  capping. ���   �����   ��  Constable Barnes of Fernie brought a  quartet of culprits to the Nelson jail yes  terday who have various terms to serve  for offenses against the peace of the residents of the coal city of the interior. Some  lime ago one of the hotels In Fernie was  broken into when a quantity nf small  change was stolen as Tvell as a quantity  of liquor. For this oflense James Duffj-  and James Roberts were tried and found  guilty, a quantity of the stolen stuff being found on them at the time of their*  arrest. They were tried "upon a charge of  theft and being found guilty were sentenced to six months' Imprisonment. James  Leckie, the third member of the party,  was also suspicioned with the same offence, but the police were unable to secure  a conviction upon this charge, so he was  sentenced to six months' imprisonment as  a vagrant. The fourth man tn the quartet was John Kenny. He was convicted on  the charges of being "disorderly, fighting,  nnd resisting arrest. He was sentenced,  all told, to eight months' imprisonment.  * * ���  Strikes, like wars, are cruel things.  Louis Florl is an Italian resident of Nelson whose family Is in destitute circumstances. He endeavored to secure work on  the government road which is being built  along .he old Forty-nine creek trail but  was turned off because there were a number of British subjects who nlso desired  employment and whose claims had a first  call. He then secured work with the contractors who have the work of straightening out the bed of Cottonwood creek,  but on the first day upon which he was  to go to work the) striking trackmen  called the men' off the job for the reason  that they considered that the performing  of it would help the railway company out  in' its' struggle with its trackmen, and the  contractors have therefore been compelled  to give over the work'for the present.
