C, FRIDAY, AUGUST 2, 1901  FIVE CENTS  LAWYERS GAN PLAY BALL  BEAT THE GOVERNMENT MEN  HANDS DOWN.  eigners.    Unless this policy is adopted  a great rebellion is certain."  t(  A Six Inning Game Which Furnished  ��� No End of Amusement for Appreciative Spectators.  The ball game yesterday between the  lawyers anil the employes of the provin-  v cial government' offices resulted in an  easy victory for the lawyers, much to  the surprise of the people who thought  they were in the know. The government men were supposed to have got  into fine shape as the result of several  weeks' practice, but what is causing the  greatest wonder today is just the kind  of a game they would have played had  '���'. they entered the field witli no practice  at all, as the members of the lawyer",'  team did.  The general opinion was that tlie government  men   were  going   to   have   a  ��� walkaway with  their battery of Laing  ,' and Henderson, but the result of the  game will show that the batters on the  lawyers' team did most of the walking  on charities. Laing got credit for an.  even  dozen  strikeouts,   but  ho "was. as  > wild as a hawk, keeping: Henderson  jumping around in the almost hopeless  ���endeavor to connect with his delivery.  ' In addition to sending 10 men to first  on balls, Laing had six wild pitches  charged up against him, all of which  occurred   while   the   lawyers   were   cir-  ;''��� cling the bases, and he also sent two of  the lawyers to first- by hitting them.  Tom Henderson was the only member  of the government team who made anything like a creditable showing. When  he  was  younger  he was  quite  a  ball  - player and a little of the game still  sticks to him.    He made a trio of er-  ���v rors, but the company he was in, 'no  doubt,7 accounted for them, as errors  seemed to be infectious.; At the bat he  made the best showing of all. He was  :\inly up three times. Twice in succes-,-  sion he rapped the ball out for two  bases, and the third time up he drew a  base on balls from Elliott. Tom's two  hits, with a.couple of scratch hits by  .Simpkins and Tuck, were the. only: hits  secured by the government iuen; during  the same. - 7^...yxy^, -..  .^..; Jack * Elliott-did: the;twiriiiig'-fbr the  .-Inv-yers. and after the first innings  did very effective-work. He got nine  strikeouts, and sent but six .of the government men to/.flrst on balls or being-  hit by pitched balls. He was also fortunate in that he- received excellent  support in the infield, and as Hendcr-  - son and Jarvis "were the only government men to get the ball out of the diamond, this meant everything. The lawyers came out of the game with but  two errors, Sherman's wide throw to  third and Elliott's fumble of Mills' short  hit between himself and Forin. Thr.  lawyers' Infield also used their heads  and always shut off the advanced men  on the bases instead of playing for tlie  batter. Of the outfielders Galliher was  the only one who got a chance. It was  a long fly from Jarvis' in the fourth inning, and Bill took it in like a veteran  and then gracefully acknowledged the  applause from the grand stand. Galliher  also  divided   the  honors  with  the  J)_est_ofJ:heJawyei*s_at_the_bat._securin  Cost of the War.  LONDON, August 1.���In the house of  commons today lord Stanley, the financial secretary of the war'oflice, replying  to a duestion, said the cost of the war  in South Africa from April 1 to July 31  was ��35,750,000, partly chargeable  against the deficit of last year. The actual cost in July was �� 1,250,000 weekly.  The statement was greeted with ironical Irish cheers. The chancellor of the  exchequer, sir Michael Hicks-Beach,  said if the war continued at the same  cost for the next threo months it would  necessitate spending the whole of the  reserve he had provided for financing  the 'third quarter, but he had reason  to hope that this would not be necessary.

BALTIMORE, August 1.���The Democratic state convention, which met here  today, declared that the purpose of the  party if successful in the coming elections   is  to  eliminate  the  negro  from  politics in Maryland if such a thing be  possible  under the  constitution of the  state.    Upon this, the paramount issue  of the campaign, will stand the candidates nominated today for state offices  and those chosen in the various country  and  district conventions as candidates  in  the legislature of 1902, which  body  will, elect a United  States senator to  succeed George L. Wellington.   That his  successor   in  the  event  of  Democratic  victory  will   be  Arthur  P.   Gorman   is  probable.'. The real business of the convention was the formulation and adoption of a platform upon which the Democrats could go before the people of the  state  with a reasonable show of winning.   The combined sagacity of all the  Democratic leaders in the state was called into requisition for this purpose and  under the advice and guidance of Mr.  Gorman the following declaration upon  ��� the chief, issue was involved:   The Democratic party represents more than 40,-  000   majority   of   the   white   people   of  Maryland.   They, in common with their,  brethren of other states in -which large  masses of colored voters have been injected into the body politic, recognize  that   the  peace,   good   order,   personal  safety ,and  proper .development of our  material interests depends upon the control of the commonwealth by its intelligent white residents.    Without the aid  of the 60,000 colored voters, the Republican party in Maryland would be a hopeless  minority.    We,  therefore,  without  hesitation proclaim that the success of  the  Democratic, party will  mean that  while we shall  deal with perfect fairness in securing all the. benefits of good  government and full and free opportunities for education to all classes such  action must be taken as to prevent the  control  of the state government from  passing  into  the  hands   of those  who  have neither the ability nor the interest to manage public affairs wisely and  well.

The placards protest against the imposition of the house  tax saying it is only exacted in order  tb meet the indemnity, to be paid the  powers, and proceeds: "If money cannot be obtained, why not make war on  the foreigners? China is not yet defeated. It is only the government's eyes,  which are blinded by disloyal ministers.  If we refuse to fight, then it is a case of  being greedy to live, yet fearing death.  How can the carefully studied military  arts be used except against foreigners?  How can we otherwise employ our regiments? During 1900 much money was  collected through lotteries, gambling  and general taxes, but they were never  satisfied. If the house tax be collected  we will demolish the chapels and drive  out the Christians. If the emperor is  unable to pay, we Boxers have an excellent plan to gain a victory over the for  aged 3S, leaped from the Proctor utreet  bridge this afternoon and was dashed  to death against the rocks in the pinch  95 feet below. She was well-known in  social circles and had been ill for several  months. It is believed despondency, resulting from tho condition of her health,  was responsible for the act. Mrs. Price  spent the afternoon at Point Defiance  Park with a IC-year-old companion. Returning: she left the car at Proctor .-treet  and loitered about the bridge waiting  for another car. Her excuse was that  she desired to avoid the crowd on (he  first car. Suddenly Mrs. Price asked  her companion to look up the street a ail  see whether any person was approaching. When the girl turned her head  again Mrs. Price had disappeared. I-.'er  rail was witnessed by a minister "Mir  his wife, who hastened to the bottom  of tho gulch to assist the woman, but  she was dead when tncy reached hor.  It is believed Mrs. Price crept through  an opening in the rail beside the footpath alongside the bridge and leaped  into the gulch. A widower and small  son survive her.  Frank Watson and W. W. Greenwood  of Spokane will leave today for the  Fisher Maiden property on Slocan lake.  The owners of the Fisher Maiden have  agreed to ship- four cars of high grade  ore to the Granby smelter at Grand  Forks, anc} the shipping of this will be  the first matter to receive the attention  of Messrs. Watson and Greenwood when  they arrive at the property. The Fisher  Maiden is a high grade dry ore with its  chief values in silver. There is a considerable quantity of ore on. the dump  at present and the proposed four-car  shipment will be made entirely from  the dump without sorting. There is a  small force of men employed on the  Fisher Maiden in development. They  are at present engaged in running the  No. 4 tunnel, and only such ore as is  met withJ in development is being taken  out.. The work done so far has shown  the ledge to be a strong one, 12 feet of  which is well mineralized, with a paystreak, of several inches carrying high  silver values. There is at present a  great demand for the class of ore produced by the Fisher Maiden, but the  owners do not intend to commence stoping until they, have their development  well in hand.  B. C.

A. E.-Rand arrived in Nelson yesterday for the purpose of seeing -what can  be done in the way of closing' up the  deal on the Venus Company's property  to the Athabasca company.    It is  understood that the Hitch has cropped up  owing to the unwillingness of the looal  shareholders  to agree to the amended  ' bond as fixed up in Toronto with the  principal holders of Venus stock.  ',-,." Tlie-i-MontreaL syndicate which is developing the big iron ledge at Kitchener  did not make its payment yesterday, as  was expected.    Instead the-syndicate is  said to be looking for an extension of  time in which to more thoroughly prospect the property.    There are a  large  number of interests represented in the  bond  and some  difficulty  may be  expected   in  securing  a  unity  of  action  with  respect  to  the  extension  of  the  bond, although  what is  known as the  Fowler interest has agreed to the wishes  of the syndicate for a 30-day extension.  Lem Luther of Ainsworth was in Nelson yesterday.    He has been employed  all winter in running a tunnel in on the  Jackson Basin-group in the Slocan, he  and Alex MeLeod having the contract  for the work.   Luther says that things  are  on the mend   in  the Whitewater  camp.    The Whitewater is starting up  at once, and it is said that within a  couple  of  weeks  there  will  be a full  force of men at work.   The Whitewater  is said to have made a contract with the  <r-rail=snielter=for=the==output==Of^tlfe"  mine.   Work is also to be resumed upon  a  number  of  other  properties   in  the  camp and the outlook for the coming  season  is  generally   regarded   as   very  bright.  Santiago. The Brooklyn landed a shell  just ahead of my ship, and, with the  Oregon helping her, there was nothing  left for me to do but run ashore. I  should say that Schley was not only  brave but very competent, as is Sampson, whom I know personally. I don't  know Schley. Schley directed that our  officers retain their personal effects. A  coward is never generous. The suggestion of cowardice probably comes from  cowards. I have read in El Mundo Naval  that this attack upon an honorable naval  officer has a low political basis. The  navy should be left out of politics."  No Clue to the Robbers.  CHICAGO, August 1.���No clue has yet  ,been obtained of the men who held up  the Baltimore & Ohio vestibuled limited  last night near Miller's Station, Ind.  As soon as the attempted robbery was  reported to the railroad officials in Chicago a special train was made up and a  fast run was made to the scene of the  hold-up. The train carried officials of  the road, special detectives and officers  of the Chicago police department. Bloodhounds were secured from Long Beach,  aud these aided in the search for the  desperadoes. A reward of ?500 has been  offered by the superintendent of the  road for any information that will lead  to the arrest of the baiidits, and it is  thought that a greater amount will be  offered for their capture.  Seven suspects are under arrest in  connection with the hold-up of the Baltimore & Ohio limited last evening south  of this city.,Three of the'prisoners were  found hovering around a camp fire east  of Miller's, Ind., not far from the scene  of the hold-up. The other four were  taken in at Albion, Ind. There is apparently no conclusive.evidence against  any of the men.  STEEL MAGNATES STUBBORN  MORGAN REFUSES TO REOPEN THE  WAGE CONFERENCE.

Burned in a Wallace Fire.. .  WALLACE, Idaho, July 31;���Fire in  the eastern part of town yesterday afternoon damaged the Hotel Stanley and  severely burned three people. ��� Charles  Stanley, si'., was in the kitchen* when  he discovered fire in a shed just outside,  and a moment later saw his four-year-  old boy,at the back end of the shed surrounded by flames. He rushed in after  the boy, and the mother jumped from a  sick bed and ran out in time7to catch  the child as the father fell with him.  All three were severely burned, although  not, dangerously. The department ar-,  rived promptly, considering- the length  of the run, and soon had the fire under  control. Two or three old sheds were  burned, and the kitchen of the hotel  was considerably scorched, while the  strawberry bed and several apple trees  iri ..the next lot, .belonging, to R, L. Dunv  can, .were: killed. : "       "-~-.������'������-'.'  STRIKERS BACK TO WORK  TROUBLE ABOUT OVER ON KOOTENAY BRANCHES.  Six Crews on the   Rossland   Section  Return to Work and Others Expected to Follow.  Uncle Sam Will Not Assist.  HELENA, Mont., August 1.���Governor  Toole today received a formal notice  from the secretary of the interior that  the government would not deport the  Cree Indians, wards of the British government, who are now wandering about  the state. The vagabond Crees have  spread smallpox through saveral Montana Indian reservations and for years  have been an annoyance to settlers and  the state authorities. Inspector McLaughlin recently recommended that the  government deport the Indians us was  done several years ago, but the commissioner of Indian affairs, whose recommendation has been adopted by the secretary, says the government cannot assist the state authorities.  Handsome Contribution.  LONDON, August 1.���The lord mayor  Frank Green has received through J.  S. Morgan & Co. of London a contribution of ��5000 to the queen Victoria memorial fund. The contribution is made  by the delegates of the New York Chamber of Commerce who recently visited  London.  The Schley Case.  WASHINGTON, August 1.���It was announced at the navy department today  that the letter of rear admiral Schley  acknowledging the receipt of the precept  to tho court of inquiry and making certain suggestions with reference thereto,  had at last been received. No explanation of the delay in its arrival, and no  statement of its contents wero furnished.  Judge advocate Lemley departs on his  annual leave Saturday, and tho supposition is that rear admiral Schley's letter  will bo considered and acted on oefore  that time. Captain James Parker, the  cx-naval officer, who is acting as admiral Schley's associate counsel, today continued his examination of the logs of  the ships engaged in the Santiago campaign and other official records pertaining thereto. He occupied secretary  Long's office adjoining the bureau of  navigation and by direction of admiral  Crowinshield, chief of that bureau, who  is now acting secretary of the navy,  newspaper men and others were permitted to communicate with him. One  of the officers of the bureau remained  constantly in the room to see that the  official records were not tampered with.  Admiral Schley's letter to the department together with the reply thereto,  as soon as the latter is prepared, will be  made nublic.  NEW YORK, August 1.���The Madrid  representative of the Journal and Advertiser has obtained an interview-with  captain Diaz Moreu, who commanded  the Cristobal Colon during the naval  campaign off Santiago. Says captain  Moreu in reference to the movements  of admiral Schley: "All the American  officers, without exception, aid their  duty in the naval battle of Santiago.  It is absurd and unpatriotic to make  any exception in the case of admiral  Schley. The Brooklyn was in the thickest of the fight throughout. She was at  the mouth of the harbor when we tried  to pass out ,and engaged us in a terrific  fire doing frightful damage in the end.  In the pursuit of the Colon we surrendered to the Brooklyn, 45 miles west of ,  A break was made yesterday in the  strike of the trackmen employed on the  Kootenay branches of the Canadian Pacific railway and it is now thought that  ^the=end=of=the=struggle=is=at=handi=at=  least insofar as the "Kootenay branches  of the system are concerned. Within  the past few days there have been several conferences between the representatives of the strikers and the officials  of the branch lines, and the outcome  of them was that yesterday morning  evory gang on the Rossland branch  agreed to go back to work. This arrangement affected six foremen and 21  trackmen, and their action in going  back to work has lifted the strike off  tho Rossland branch entirely.  It is generally understood that the  action of the men on the Rossland  branch will bo followed by thoso on the  Columbia & Western, Columbia & Kootenay. Slocan River, and Nakusp & Slocan. That this will be tho case is borne  out by the fact that two or three of the  foremen from the other branches went  over the Rossland line yesterday to satisfy themselves that the men there had  gone back to work. If their report corroborates that of the company's officials it is thought that the men on the  Columbia & Kootenay branch will go  back to work this morning and that the  men on the other branches will then  follow suit.  It is generally understood that ''*  continued fine weather has been the  greatest factor in the settlement of the  trouble, since it enabled the company to  hold out for a much longer period than  was supposed to be possible, and thus  cut the strikers off from their expected  assistance from the trainmen, who, if  they had been forced out by reason of  a dangerous state of the road, would  speedily have forced a settlement, which  could not have been otherwise than favorable to the trackmen. Throughout  the trouble, however, the best of feeling has prevailed between the strikers  and the officials of the company, there  being an utter absence of the bitterness which too frequently is in evidence  in troubles of like nature.  It is reported that the railway company has a crew of 100 men now on the  way to this section to fill the gaps made  in tho ranks of the sectionmen, who  have sought other employment by reason of the strike. Even should all the  men who are on the ground go back-  to work there would still be a number  of vacancies, but the old men will be  given the preference in every case.  PITTSBURG, August 1���The statement was given out by the Amalgamated board this afternoon that there  was nothing to report and that another  session will be held tomorrow morning.  The conference was still in progress,  but the guard said this statement was  final for the day. It is said that V.  Preston, Joseph Schwab and W. E. Corey of the steel combine were in telephonic conversation with the Amalgamated board at frequent intervals all  day. But what passed over the wires  is not known. It indicates, however,  that all hope of settlement is not abandoned by either side. The conference  adjourned at 5 p. m.  PITTSBURG, August 1.���The Amalgamated Journal, the organ of the Amalgamated Association, editorially says today that the result of the deliberations  of the board on Tuesday was sent to  the United States Steel Corporation officials. The board desires another conference with the representatives of the  constituent companies and will remain  in the city until an answer is received.  Upon the result of the answer, it says,  Will depend whether the strike will be  prolonged indefinitely.  PITTSBURG, August 1.���The Commercial Gazette tomorrow will say: "The ,  Amalgamated executive board last even-J  ing received by telegraph a fiat refusal  from J. Pierpont Morgan to reopen the  wage conference where it was broken  off at the Hotels Lincoln nearly three  weeks ago. The powers of the 'steel  combine; insist' in this communication  that the only basis of settlement would  be on terms which the financial backers of the combine and president C. M.  Schwab and chairman Elbert H. Gary  laid down at the meeting with the Amalgamated executive in New York last  Saturday. A member of the executive  board of the association last night said:  "These terms are denominated by those  who have the best-interests of the organization of steel workers at heart,; as  the most unfair, the most unjust ever  ���proposed to any -body of workingmen  by a set of employers or a corporation.  The terms are such that the executive  board of the Amalgamated Association  cannot accept and have already gone on  record to that effect."  Tomorrow the answer of Mr. Morgan  is expected by mail. There is scarcely  a fragment of a hope that the Amalgamated Association will back down from  its well-known position. The leaders of  the workers will in reply outline their  plans to the' steel corporation for a continuation of the great struggle. They  will include the stopping of every wheel  possible in, the works of the combine  and the extension of the strike in all  possible directions by the Amalgamated  Association. Today may develop much,  but if the combine cannot be made to  waver through the influence that will  be brought to bear, the great conflict  will  probably  be  fought  to  the bitter  end.    =^Tliere^was=some^exciteniiJnt"Ttt^We]l!>"  ville last night over the report that  enough men to start two mills were  coining from Apollo.

' WASHINGTON, August 1.���The break  in the Venezuelan cabinet caused by the  resignation of senor Pulido, the war  minister, caused considerable surprise  in diplomatic circles .here. The real  situation apparently is not understood  and especially the proposition to deliver  his passports to senor Rico, the Colombian minister. This act ardinarily  is regarded by diplomats as tantamount  to a casus belli and officials here are  at a loss to understand the reason for  consideration of such ��� a step, as it is  said that the relations of, the governments of Venezuela and Colombia are  cordial. There .appears to be some inconsistency in the reports of the battle  whicli has taken place near San Cristobal between the government troops and  the rebels, the dispatches from Port of  Spain declaring that the government  troops sustained defeat, while a telegram  received at the Venezuelan legation here  today from the consul general of that  country at New York announced the defeat of the revolutionists in the San  Cristobal encounter. .

August 1.���The  third day of the great strike opened  with no decisive change In the situation,  although the outlook for a settlement  has improved. Tho City Front Federation, which controls the men now out,  has submitted a series of proposals as  a basis for the re-establishment of peace.  Dispatches from various cities show that  the strike is affecting cities along the  coast. The steamer Columbia, which  was to have sailed this morning for  Portland with a full cargo and 200 Epworth Leaguers, has been held on telegraphic orders from Portland. The vessel was loaded by non-union men and  it is feared her arrival at the Oregon  port will precipitate another '.strike  there. Contrary to their previously announced intentions the sand teamsters  and stablemen have decided not to i*;o  out, as the Federation thinks it can win  without their aid. The fact of the sand  teamsters remaining at work is expected  to prevent the strike extending to the  building trades.  Now the Longshoremen.  BUFFALO, August 1.���An action that,  as its effect now stands, influences the  entire lake traffic went into 'effect today, when the 900 men- of local No. 109.  International 'Longshoremen's Association, in obedience to a letter from president Daniel J. O'Keefe, decided to refuse to handle the freight of any Anchor  lino boats out of sympathy with the  striking 'longshoremen of Erie, Pa. The  locals at overy port reached by the  Anchor line boats have received similar  letters from president O'Keefe of the  'Longshoremen's Association. Tlie Anchor line, being a member of the Lake  Carriers' Association, an organization  which includes the entire fresh water  fleet, it is said will be backed up in  their position. All the branches here  are affected, scoopers, oilers, firemen and  freight handlers and coal passers.

C.  on, notwithstanding there are gold and  gold-copper mines scattered here and.  there  over the district.  Messrs. McDonald and Kirby claim  . that the contract system introduced by  them in the Le Roi and War Eagle  mines at Rossland has proved from  2*0 to 40 per cent cheaper than the day-  wage system that prevailed before the  change was made. This is disputed by  men equally well-posted, who claim that  ���in-mines=irianaged==by=capable=3Uperin="  tendents the cost is less by day's wage  than by contract. Neither the War  Eagle nor the Le Roi were considered  ���well-managed mines before the change  from the day-wage to the contract system was made, and these comparisons  aro not accepted as accurate by mining  men who know the circumstances; but,  .such statements'help Messrs. McDonald  and Kirby where the facts are not  known. If the facts are as they state  them to be, why is it that no other  mines in Kootenay have adopted the  contract system? The-principal owners  in the War Eagle and Center Star are  controlling owners in other big mines  in Kootenay; then why do they not  make the contract system general in all  'the mines they control?  A Pertinent Query.  NELSON, August 1.���To the Editor of  The Tribune: Here is a problem in mathematics for you. to solve: If McDonald  and Kirby are saving from 25 to 40  per cent by the contract system and  still losing money,, what dividend would  the stockholders of the'Le Roi and War  Eagle receive if their ��� property was  managed on< an even basis with the  other mining properties of the Kootenay? If dishonest management does  not pay, please advise McDonald and  Kirby to try honest methods.  ABNER THOMPSON.  DOGS AND MEN IN MONTREAL  Judge Brents at Walla Walla, Washington, has declared the Sunday Closing  .Law of that state   unconstitutional   as  '.far as it refers to business houses other  .'than saloons.   The decision is based on  - common sense.   All people do not think  alike on the Sunday  Observance question.    Some prefer to observe Saturday  i as a day of rest and others Thursday.  -These  people  have  a  perfect  right  to  ' close their stores on Thursdays or Saturdays and keep open other days of the  weok, provided they do not try to coni-  ' pel   others  to  do  likewise.    Sunday  is  by common consent observed as a day  of rest;  but those who prefer to work  on that day and observe some other day  as a day of rest should have that privilege.   The announcement hy The Tribune  that the smelter at Trail would be kept  running as long as dry ores could be  procured acted as a tonic on business  'men throughout the silvor-lead districts  of Kootenay. Kootenay is a great mining country, and its silver-lead mines  are v/liat made it and what it depends  Create a Lively Scene.  The Montreal Star of last Saturday  contains an account of a dog fight and  its results, which is interesting, and is  given below in full:  There was such a mix-up of dogs and  humanity the other morning at the corner of Windsor and St. Antoine streets  as has not been witnessed in this city  for many a long day. It all started  'with a big white and hrowii-rac- u rfi.  Bernard, who was standing quietly en-  joyjng^th^sjmlighji-^iufi'pnt. 0_tLajliuig  "store. It was half-past eight in the  morning and the scene was calm and  peaceful. A short, stout man came down  the hill, followed by a bull dog. Whon  the bull got opposite the St. Bernard,  the big fellow growled, and in a twinkling there was a mix-up for your life.  The bull was a little slow on the go in,  but managed to get one of the St. Bernard's forepaws well down his throat,  and proceeded to perform an amputation. The L��:. Bernard was not idle during the preliminary stages, but was  slowly removing a large bunch of flesh  and collar from the bull's neck."  There was another big bull dog crossing St. Antoine about this time, and he  immediately went over and took a hand  in the argument. He tackled bull dog  No. 1, of course, who now had all he  could do to handle the St. Bernard and  his new antagonist. The yelping of  the three animals as they rolled about  in a heap and tore away at one another, made a great sensation in the  vicinity and a big crowd speedily collected. Crow bars -were produced to  pry the animals apart and some one  talked of exploding a dynamite cartridge  in the middle of the bunch. An employe  of the owner of bull dog No. 2 ran  across the street with a bucket of water  to pour upon the struggling animals,  when the water went by mistake over  the owner of bull dog No. 1, who was  poking his fingers in his dog's eyes,  hoping he would spit out the mouthful  of St. Bernard which by this time was  pretty much his own. Infuriated by  this treatment, the owner of No. 1 dog  got busy and knocked out the newcomer,  who discreetly picked himself up and  retired.  Meanwhile the owner of dog No. 2,  asleep when the combat flrst started,  heard the row, and recognizing his dog's  voice in the fray, rushed to the street  in his nightshirt with a little tack hammer in his hand. His appearance in  this neglige costume made a sensation,  but the owner of bull dog No. 1. was  mostly anxious as to what he was going  to do with the tack hammer. So, as  the new arrival lifted his little hammer  to crack a dog's head, he was surprised  by a blow which knocked him sprawling  into the street, nightshirt and all. So  he, too, retired from the field.  The dogs were Anally disentangled,  bull dog No. 2 ran across the street to  his owner and dog No. 1 followed. This  was where the owner of dog No. 1 made  his only big mistake, and that was when  he followed his dog into the shop. There  were sounds of heavy thuds, and when  the man came out he was in a worse  plight than were any of the dogs after  the battle. He had a hole in his ear,-  another in his nose, and was generally  pretty badly chewed up. These, it was  subsequently discovered, were made on  the intruder with an ice pick. Alto-  together, it was as warm a time as has  been seen in that vicinity for many a  long day.  Troubles in Colombia.  KINGSTON, Jamaica, August 1.���The  British steamer Texan, from Liverpool  July llth for this port by way of Colon,  has arrived here and brings information of the reports of severe fighting  along the railroad for miles out of Colon  Sunday and Monday last. The rebels  attacked the government troops with  determination and forced them back.  When the steamer left there was great  excitement among the residents of Colon, and they are leaving that city in  alarm. The Colombian government has  found it impossible to get a crew for  their gunboat, but is placing guns on  board of her. The English and American crew have deserted to a man.  COLON, Colombia, August 1 (via Gal-  rveston).���The report that the rebels  have captured, three towns is an exaggeration. The facts are as follows:  The rebels on Friday, Saturday and  Monday raided at night time Gautun,  Bohio and Bascobispo, three small railway stations without protection towards Colon, looting the Chinese shops  of provisions, clothing, etc., and kidnaping several persons, withdrawing immediately afterwards. One woman was  shot. The government has since garrisoned the three stations mentioned  and is pursuing the rebels closely. Four  trains are crossing the road daily as  usual.  -J��w��w^��'.  %f'0"  If  00*00'0S>-00'00'00'000-00  ^gj&^aqy *0!&iQK0  * 00' 00 '00*00  ���H5 (^x &  jsr-s'-ezx.s!-'  4g*_*r>* ^4j__^ Tiittii- -i***-^' .

PORT OF SPAIN, -Island of Trinidad,  August 1.-���The Venezuelan.minister of  war, senor Pulido, who is the leader of  an important political party, has resigned after a violent scene in the cabinet, during whicli the minister refused  to accept orders of president Castro to  recognize the revolutionists in Colombia as belligerents and to deliver a passport to senor Rico, the Colombian minister. .-.';��� Senor Pulido denies that the invaders of Venezuelan territory are Colombians, as president Castro claims,  but insists that they are revolutionists.  The resignation of the war minister  has caused a profound impression here.  The situation is critical.

The public  prosecutor's office is authority for the  statement that Galliotti was arrested for  disseminating anarchistic writings in  Switzerland. The prisoner, who was  born in 1871 at San Sofia, in the vicinity  of Florence, Italy, is known as one of  the most fanatical anarchists. He has  undergone several terms of imprisonment, but there is no record of his having been engaged in any attempt at assassination. .  The Speedy Dueschland.

They nrc- commodious, well  provided with light and uir, with a floor  of wood plunking, covered with matting.  These are the cells which contained the  Jameson raid prisoners and In which W.  T. Slead edited the Pall Mall Gazette. So  far as the provision of the prison authorities arc concerned, earl Russell will  have an excellent bed, a washstand, a  water ewer, chair, looking- glass, with cup  and saucer, plate and callar of salt with  oilier lirst class misdemeanants. Tho earl  will rise at 5 a. m., take his exercise and  breakfast, either on prison faro or cocoa  and bread or on any luxuries that ho may  have brought in from the Cottage restaurant outside. A. pint of malt liquor or a  half pint of of wirio is allowed to each  prisoner por diem. The >>rlco paid for accommodation in one of lhe private- rooms  at Hollowell, with a common prisoner as  orderly, is $1.50 per- week. Karl Russell  will occupy tho room- in which sir John  AVIlloughby was incarcerated for his complicity in lhe Jameson raid. Countess Russell, the second, has seen colonel Miilman  on obtaining for the earl exceptional fare  and treatment. The countess said: "I have  provided him with specia! furniture, bedding, books, writing materials and everything to make him comfortable. As �� detenu in the lirst division, he Is not only  entitled to his own private room, no hair  cropping, a certain number of visitors,  Iris books and his correspondence, provided il is open for Inspection of the gov  ernor of the prison, but he has also the  privilege of having his meals supplied  from the outside. I have arranged with a  llrm of confectioners in Holloway Road  to supply earl Russell with his food. At  first they seemed rather averse to tak-  nig the order, for It appears that some first  class misdemeanants they supplied with  food on previous occasions had, neglected  to pay their bills. I ma-uaged to persuade  them, however, to take my order, and this  is what they will send in to my huabtiud  day by day: Ho cats only the plainest  food and is easily pleased. For breakfast  ho will 'receive' butter, eggs, coffee and  dry toast. His lunch, will consist of steak,  green vegetables stewed fruit and cream,  and dry toast. He eats no potatoes and  prefers dry toast, as he is afraid of growing stout. .Afternoon tea he will have to  dispense with, for although he is a tea  lover, the rules of . Holloway permit of  prisoners enjoying only three meals a day.  His last meal of the day, therefore, will  be dinner, and as at present arranged the  menu will be; soup, joint, vegetables as  at lunch, fruit,- pie and cream and dry  toast. Drink? AVell, he is. a teetotaler and  prefers 'water. We were both very much  surprised at his sentence., Wc never expected after his plea that it would be  more than the merely nominal one of a  day."  a  We have just received a Consignment of  Descendants of Edward Ball of Brant-  ford, Conn., who are blood relations of  George Washington, will hold a reunion  at Keuka Park, New Mexico, August  27, 28 and 29.

"Well, I will tell  ���you, general," the soldier said, dryly,  ,"Bob Lee is at Petersburg, and Stonewall Jaclcson is in heaven. Hell is the  only place left for you." Grant enjoyed  the thrust, grim as it was.

Another time he  said to a culprit: "I can produce Ave  witnesses who saw you steal that cow."  "Yes," said the prisoner, "but I can  produce five hundred who did not."  V - *    * . *  Hans Jensen, a Dane, recently appeared before the magistrate of the district court held in Garnett, Kansas, to  be naturalized. At the close of the usual  examination, the judge asked the applicant: "Hans, are you satisfied with the  general conditions in this country? Does  this government suit you entirely?"  "Yas, yas," answered Hails; "only I  would like to see more rain." You may  be sworn," said the judge; "I perceive  you already have the Kansas idea."  ������s     *     *'  A young British officer at, the front  reecntly wrote" home to his father from  South Africa: "Dear Father: Kindly  send me fifty pounds at once; lost another leg iu a stiff engagement, and am  in the hospital without" means." ��'.: The  answer was: "My Dear Son: As this  is-the fourth leg you have lost, according to your letters, you ought to be  'Accustomed to it by this time.

During one of the later rehearsals a consultation was held on the stage between si��"  Henry, sir Alexander Mackenzie, whu  wrote the music, and sir Laurence Alma  Tadema, who designed the scenery.  "Three blooming knights," remarked a  supernumary. "Yes," replied . another,  "and that's about as-long as-the piece  will run."  . *   *   *  It is said that one evening when Dr.  Freind was summoned from a rather too  festive board to the bedside of a lady  patient, he felt her pulse but could not  count its beats. ��� "Drunk, by Jove!" he  soliloquized, and pulled himself together  sufficiently to order some harmless mixture. His delight may be imagined  when, the next morning, instead of an  indignant dismissal from further attendance, he received from his patient  a confession that he had diagnosed her  complaint quite correctly.  ��     *     a   .

In astonishment, the physician asked what they were doing. Some questioning finally elicited an explanation  from the biggest girl, who shamefacedly  explained that "de. one what tells de  biggest lie wins it." "Oh," said the doctor; "I am ashamed of you; -when I  was little like you I never told lies." A  slight pause, then from the smallest  girl: "Give him the candy."

Like others on board,  the duke had been seasick. One day he  was reading the published account of a  storm wliich struck the Ophir, in which  it was stated that Mr. So-and-So had  suffered from mal-de-mer; that captain  Somebody Else had been seasick; and  that his, royal highness, the duke of  Cornwall and York, had been "slightly  indisposed." "Humbug!" the duke is  said to have exclaimed; "'slightly indisposed,' indeed!

"  a    a    *  When Richard Wagner was conductor of the Royal Opera in Dresden, the  orchestra of that institution, though one  of the best in Germany, was far from  being as good as it is now, and Wagner  had a good deal of trouble in making  it follow his intentions. Some years  later, when he was living as an exile in  Zurich, he undertook to train the local  orchestra. After a few attempts, he exclaimed: "Gentlemen, you have just  given me a great pleasure; you have  played exactly as badly as the Dresden  orchestra. The Zurich players laughed,  and the idea that they might play better than the royal musicians in Dresden  so fired their zeal that they actually  succeeded in doing It  *    a    *  Once, in a semi-humorous vein, the  late John Fiske, whose appearance was  of the herculean rather than scholastic  build, wrote out his system of health  rules as follows: "Always sit in a  draught, when I lind one; wear the thinnest clothes I can And, winter and summer; catch cold once in three or four  ���years, but not severely, and prefer to J  A Beauty of Napoleon's Court.  A woman who created quite a stir  in Paris at the court of Napoleon the  Third, the comtesse de" Castiglione, died  here- not long ago. She lived in absolute retirement for the last 15 years,  on a little apartment on the Rue Cambon. Interest in her has been revived  by her will, the sale of her pearls, pictures, furniture, etc. In her "will she  orders that her nurse shall see her  dressed after death, "beau." The directions she gives as to how she is to be  dressed I leave in French, as I know  little about women's clothes:  "Chemise de unit 1S57 batiste, den-  telles et peignoir long, rave velour noir,  peluche blanche. Le collier de perles,  tl rangs,_^ranss_blancs_eL3^noirs,_col:  Tier habituel q ue jai toujours porte  avec le sou troue en fermoir cristal,  chirfre (deux Ventrolaces) et couronne  que toutes les habilleuses connaissent.  "Feet and arms uncovered. My embalmed dogs, Toto and Zig, 'buried with  me; at my feet the rosary of the mountain; the medallion of Lourdes at my  neck, with the pearls."  Her pearls were sold at the Hotel  Drouot the other day. A necklace of  live strands went for 421,500 francs  (."ft>4,ii00J. Five additional large single  pearls went for nearly ?15,000. One of  the newspapers says this about the sale  of her portraits:  "To the surprise of the auctioneer  and the experts, prices went up in the  most exaggerated fashion. Portraits of  the beautiful countess, under the strangest and most varied aspects, in satin  and silk mounts, embroidered with gold,  were disposed of. * * * The colored  photograph of the countess's bare legs,  up to the knees, showing beneath a  turned-up petticoat, was knocked down  for 70 francs."  The countess had the reputation of  having appeared more or less nude at a  ball given at the Tuileries by the empress Eugenie. ��� Pierre de Lano, who  has written a good deal about the court  of Napoieon the Third, contradicts this  assertion, saying in his book, "Las Bals  Travestis," that it was not the countess, but Mme. Gortschakoff, who appeared at the Tuileries in the costume  of Salambo, which caused so much talk.  He has in his book some 25 aquarelles,  one of them showing the countess' bare  ankles and feet with rings on her- bare  toes. He gives another of Mme. Gortschakoff, showing her entire figure in  tights with a scarf around her hips. He  further says that princess Metternich  was one of the most daring in her costume. At one ball she appeared as a  coachman bf those days, virtually tights  from the waist clown, and sang a very  risque song. He says that the empress  Eugenie, while cold herself and careful  in her dress, liked to have the ladies  of her court' in such undress fancy costumes.  The Napoleon women, First and Third,  seem to have been a curious lot. The  inner life of Josephine is now known,  and when the immediate descendants of  those of the court of Napoleon the Third  die, many things that are now locked up  will be .given to the world.    Pauline  Nelson Branch���Burns Block, 221 Baker  Street.  J. M. LAY, Manager.  Bonaparte Borghese, Napoleon the  First's younger sister, posed entirely  nude to Canova, and it is said that she.  remarked, when asked if she did not  feel cold without drapery: "No, the  room was kept warm by a stove." Si  'non e yero. The duchess of d'Abrantes,  Junoti's wife, in her charming book,  says that no picture could represent correctly the extreme beauty of Pauline.  One sees her in the Canova statue at  the Borghese villa at Rome.  As the comtesse de Castiglione did  not go as far in showing her figure as  did Mme. Gortschakoff, nor any further  than did the pjrincess Metternich, perhaps her chief fame ought to rest on  the part she took in smoothing over  the difficulties between Victor Emmanuel, and Pius the Ninth, when United  Italy took to Rome, September 20th,  1870. It is stated that the pope,was  advised by the cardinals to leave Rome  and go to Gaeta. He was asked���so  general Estancelin is reported to have  said���to intermediate between the two  powers, and the pope remained In Rome,  much to the gratification of Victor Emmanuel. The pope being pleased, made  the countess a present of a magnificent  tiara surrounded by amethysts and emeralds, worth,.not considering the value  of association, the sum of $5000.; Victor  Emmanuel gave her as a recompense  a jeweled medallion, with his portrait  in the center, and these words from the  donor: "To the beautiful Nichette, her  unhappy master." Why king Emmanuel  called himself so is probably because,  though fighting for United Italy, he  was at heart a Catholic, and loved Pion  Nona   ;���'  General Estancelin said that the countess kept a carriage from 11 a. m. to 11  p. m. at her; door, but he had never  known her to use it. She never went  out during the day, walked in the evening around Place Vendome accompanied  by two dogs (perhaps v Toto and Zig)  and, excepting her7servants,, he was  the only one she had admitted, to her  darkened little drawing-rooms during  the-last 15 years. For 45 years he had  been her friend. Her letters, he went  on, have been destroyed, by diplomatic  intervention of Italy. He adds ���that  she was satirical, biting, of an extraordinary conversational charm. One of  the Paris papers hints that she had a  "flirtation" with Victor Emmanuel. A  curious little story, so unimportant that  I have left it to the last, is told. She  hated her-mother-in-law. Her husl*and\-  got her into a carriage, almost forcing"  her, and they went to call on his mother.  When crossing one of the bridges over  the Seine, she suddenly pulled off her  slippers, threw them out of the window  into the river, and said: "You certainly cannot expect me to call on your  mother in my stocking feet."���-Covington  Johnson in San Francisco Argonaut.  New Democratic Issues.  CHILLICOTHE, Ohio, July 31.���-W. J.  Bryan, who lectured here yesterday, was  asked as to the importance of the silver  question in 1904, and replied:  "No man can say at present the part  the money question will play in the next  campaign. That will depend on conditions. But various phases of the money  =,question,ar.e-constantlyrpresenting4hom-=  selves, and the Democratic party ought  not to recede from its position on this  question, although other questions may  be of more importance for the time being. Those who are so much afraid of  the Kansas City platform seem inclined  to return to the methods employed when  the financiers filled the platforrh with  glittering generalities ind then ran the  administration in the interest of Wall  street. As a rule the men who are opposed to the Kansas City platform have  no positive or definite remedy for any  evil." Asked if he would be a candidate for the presidential nomination  again in 1904, Mr. Bryan said: "I have  said repeatedly that I hid a candidate  for no office. However, I will not enter  into bond never to become a candidate.  It would be foolish in any man to announce his candidacy for such an office  at such a time, and it strikes me 'as  a foolish question to be contrhually put  to me by the newspaper men."  m  to  to  to  to  to  to  5!>1  Established In Nelson 1890.

A meeting of the police commissioners  was held yesttrday for the purpose of con-  isdering the suspension of police constable  Heabener, who was relieved from duty  by chief Jarvis for fighting on the street  with Thomas Cunningham. The evidence  of a number of witnesses was taken, after  which the commissioners decided to censure Heabener for his conduct for fighting and reinstate him.  �����*��������  Chief engineer Starke of tho British Columbia Southern railway, has decided to  revise the lino already laid out oii this  side of the international boundary line.

The annual meeting of the shareholders  ot the Rambler-Cariboo Silver Mining  Company was held at Rossland on Tuesday. The old-board of directors was reelected, as follows: Bernard McDonald,  J. J. Humphreys, Alfred Coolidge, C. ��� J.  Kapps, AA'. H. Adams, J D. Chaplin, and  A. F. McLaine. Afterwards the following  were elected officers: A.' FV McLaine of  Tacoma, president; J. J. Humphreys of  Colfax, vice-president; and AV. H. Adams  of Kaslo, secretary-treasurer and manager. A dividend of one cent a share was  declared, amounting to $12,500. This will  bring the aggregate of dividends up to  $127,500. ��� The following is a summary of  manager Adam's report to tlie shareholders:  The lowest the mine is 700  feet deep on No. 5 level. The drift at this  point is In 300 feet, of which 200 feet-runs  on. the lead and is in solid ore. AVhen we  visited the .property yesterday this drift  was in 10 feet of solid, clean galena. The  smelter returns from 50 carloads of ore  practically all from this drift, gave 123  ounces of silver and 45 per cent lead. AVe  have been working but eight men on ore,  as we have required the balance of our  force and compressor power in sinking  to another level and in raisingJ:oivJiii\ AVe^  pSSSS^&,S?%d.     Brewer, at Nelson I  Output to Be Doubled.  Ellas Rogers,* managing director of the  Crow's Nest Coal Company, was in Nelson  day before yesterday en route oast from a  visit to the Coast. AVhen here he was  closeted with a bank manager and a lawyer most of the timo and could not be  interviewed. AVhile at Vancouver it is  stated that he was over at Victoria conferring with the members of the government upon several matters connected with  the mines and with the Crow's Nest Southern railway. He states that the mines are  now producing about 2000 tons of coal per  day, but that the output will bo largely  increased if not doubled before the. end of  the year. Last year the gross output of  the Crow's Nest Pass collieries was 20G,-  ifOi  tons,   half  of  which   was  made   into I  =are^iiciw'=^ere^tihg^_a"^riSw^Soist and are  also putting in additional compressor  power, an electric light plant and a 75-ton  concentrator, all of which will be run by  water power. AA'e have a minimum water  power of 100 horse power, which is now being installed and will be completed on  November 15th. After the completion of  these improvements we will be able to  double our output of ore."  Mr. McLaine said: "AVe resent the report that has been circulated that the  stock of the Rambler-Cariboo has seen  more manipulation than any other on tho  local market with the imputation that the  stockholders were being jobbed by the  management. No member of the management has ever bought or sold any contracts for the stock. AVe have always held  In our opinion that the mine Is worth a  great deal more than the stock was selling  for."  BOYS, DO NOT GO TO PERU  No Country for Poor Men.  Speaking of Peru, B. C. Riblet of Nelson who recently returned from that,eoun-  try says, "It is a good country to look at  from the stern of a steamship." Mr. Riblet was down there erecting tramways for  American mining companies, and spent  several months in the country, making  three trips from the coast to the mines,  which are situate at an altitude of 17,000  feet.  "There are no strikes in that country,"  said Mr. Riblet, "because those who work  are generally in debt to their employers,  often getting their pay in advance. Miners  are paid $1.25 a day in silver, whieh Is 00  cents gold. They appear to be good and  faithful workers, but, of course, are not  the equal of the miners in this country.  Carpenters, apparently because they are  scarce, are paid $3 a day in silver. Laborers on railway construction are paid -10  cents gold a day, and appear to do as  much work as laborers do here on the  same kind of work."  Mr. Riblet says. In his opinion, Peru is  no country for men of small means. The  country although credited with having  rich mines is almost wholly without transportation facilities, and those who undertake to open up and work the mines must  be backed by large capital. A. AV. McCune of Salt Lake, .who is interested in  mines in tho Slocan, is probably iri Peru  by this time, Mr. Riblet meeting him en [  -j-g-Sm-j  HI.    IB-Y  TELEPHONE 27  &D   OO.

LAW IS UNCONSTITUTIONAL  Walla Walla Judge's Decision.  AVALLA AVALLjV, AVash., July 31.���That  portion of the state law which declares  no wares, goods or merchandise shall be  sold in AVashingtoii on Sunday is unconstitutional, according to the decision  handed, down by judge Thomas H. Brentz  of the superior court' this afternoon. That  all business houses in Washington except  saloons can be thrown wide open on Sundays without fear of complaint and law  is the text of judge Brentz's decision. The  verdict is oiie of the broadest ever delivered in the state. Its rendering lasted  nearly an hour. A week ago Sunday Dor-  soy Nichols of College Place kept open  store because ho was a Seventh Day ��\.d-  ventist, in .spite of the prosecuting .attorney's order that everything should close.  Today ho was arraigned for thev alleged  violation. John Sharpstein, his attorney,  held that the text of the code involved unjust discrimination among business houses  and was therefore unconstitutional. In a  two hour argument. he cited precedents  and quoted law. His contention was, sustained. The judge said in brief: "f confess  1 have no sympathy with the Sunday laws.  I think an act which- is wrong on Sunday is wrong on every other day of the  week. What- tho legislature forbids to be  done on Sunday, to be consistent, unless  it be acting from religious motives, should,  be prohibited throughout the week. As already intimated in some of the police court  opinions, the legislature cannot discriminate between businesses of the same class,  naturo" or character. It cannot prohibit  one and allow another to go on if. there  be no material difference between them.  The statute contains this proviso: 'This  section shall not apply to drug stores,  livery stables or undertakers.' AVhy the  legislature should discriminate against  those who trade in dr..sell goods, wares,  and merchandise and in favor of 11 very  I cannot discern. But it appears to me  there is a greater discrimination further  on. The law says: 'It shall not apply to  drug stores.' Now the drug store is a  store for the sale of goods, wares and merchandise just as a store is for the sale of  other goods, wares and merchandise. I  am strongly impressed that this law is a  discrimination against a business that uif-  fers in no particular respect from the other  businesses that are allowed to be carried  on; one that cannot affect the morals, the  health or general welfare of the t-ommun-  ity in any different respect from what  they are affected by those other .businesses. I have given what I think is the  law. It is because I-think the legislature  has transcended its power, and whenever  I am convinced of that it is my duty to declare the act invalid."  The decision means an open town again,  except for saloons. A .struggle is anticipated with those, who" will probably make  a desperate attempt to win out, now that  the merchants are on top.

The following is from the Northport  News of AVednesday and shows how men  are being brought in to run the Le Roi  smelter at Northport, at which there has  been a strike for over two months:   '  Last Sunday morning, about 5 o'clock,  a locomotive, passenger car and caboose  containing .',S workmen for the smelter,  five guardsmen and a boss, armed to the  teeth with six-shooters and Winchesters,  slowly pulled through the city from the  south and did not stop until it reached,  the water tank, which Is at the side of  the smelter grounds aird just outside of  the eity limits. The union had been apprised of their departure from Spokane  at (j o'clock the previous evening, and  consequently wero lined up a hundred  strong, reaching from tho depot to the  water tank. Just abovo the water tank  at tho south side of the railroad track  and on the ground is a hill about twenty  feet high, on which stood about 10 or 50  armed smelter men, with manager Kad-  Ish, wielding a six-shooter, in the bunch.  It was a wild looking sight,- and the actions of the resident smelter men were  about on a par with the wild scene. Union  men who tried to talk with the men had  six-shooters thrust in their faces and  told that if thoy insisted on going on the  train or proceeding further they would be  bored full of holes. The union men were  nervy, however, and stood their ground,  advancing upon the new arrivals and talking to them. The union men were cool,  peaceable and unarmed, and as soon as  the new and old smelter men had reached  their quarters the union men dispersed to  their homes. Most of the new arrivals were  direct from Leadville, Colorado. Sunday  evening two of the new smelter arrivals  came down town and told the union president that they would not go to work,  and that 10 or 15 more of the men would  come out the next morning. On Monday  morning several of them came out, more  are talking of it, "and the probability Is  that by this time they have nearly all  emit.
