RAILROAD FREIGHT RATES  I.NELSON   BOARD   OF   TRADE   TO  CONSIDER THEM.  And Discover, if Possible, if Any Discrimination Is Made Against This  City in the Matter.  I)  The question of railway freight rates  will'come up for consideration again at  .the adjourned meeting of the Nelson  -Board of Trade this evening. At the  former meeting of the'board appointed  a special committee to look into the  ouestion of railway rates and report  upon any discrimination which might  be found against Nelson as a commercial  center. This committee has gone into  the matter rather thoroughly, but it is  not likely that the committee will be  ready to report this evening, as its members have since found out that they have  a very large order on their hands, and  the probabilities, are that they will pimply report progress and ask for further  time. The Dominion commissioner will  not be in Rossland until the end of the  month, so thr.t there yet remains sufficient time to comply with the request  of the committee without interfering  with the original intention, which was  to present to tliis official the grievances  .which the board considered it has  against the railways entering Nelson.  It now looks as if the scope of the special committee will be extended so that  it will'be permitted to take notice of  tlie practice which some of the shippers  have been doing in Nelson for some  time past in entering merchandise, in its  wrong class in order.to secure the advantage of the more favorable classifications of the transportation companies..  This, intlie opinion of some of the shippers, .'; has worked, an. even - greater.''- discrimination against shippers who entered their gOods correctly than any of  the freight rates complained of. In this  connection it is said that a recommendation will be made by the committee  that misrepresentation in the classification of freight-be' made an offense of  some kind with a suflicient penalty.attached to discourage, the practice.  Among some of the- shippers" tliis phase ."'  of the question has an even greatei* interest than the consideration of .-.-the  rates themselves, as they contend that  it does not matter very much what the  rates are-if some check is not made on  the misrepresentations in the classifications. ���    .  ��� ���   ���������   7 ' '   :'.    ��� '    ���    ���  With a view to ascertaining what  merit there was in this contention a  Tribune representative called on H. E.  Macdonnell of the C. P. R. freight department. Mr. Macdonnell admitted that  tlie practice at one time had been more  or less general, but that, steps had since  been taken by the railway companies to  prevent it. In his own experience, he  said, he had encountered one' shipper  who entered groceries as potatoes, aiid  ethers had shipments of teas entered  as dried apples and so on all dowrf the  line. The means taken by the railway  companies to prevent this was by the  appointment of'an inspector whose business it is to inspect' all merchandise,  irrespective of the line it comes in over.  This officer has. had an extensive qs.-  p^rjencjejijL^thjs_br_anch_of_VNVork,_aiid,is  not easily fooled by the appearance of  the package. He not only inspects the  shipments but in cases in which the  goods have not been correctly entered  gives'them the classification which they  should have taken in the first place. It  had had the effect of very greatly lessening the practice, which in the greater  number of cases had its inception in the  shipping offices of the eastern houses  sending out mixed shipments to Nelson  traders. In speaking of the freight rate  question Mr. Macdonnell said he did  not sec what could come out of the present discussion. So far as he could see  it would be impossible for one company  single-handed to undertake to lower the  local rates out of Nelson. So far as the  Canadian Pacific was concerned, he did  not think that the American lines entering Nolson would agree to reductions  on the outward business from No'.f.on  to local points, as they might contend  that any such reduction on the otit-  wai*d local business might affect their  chance of securing a portion of the inward business. '  Brazil Has Troubles of Its Own  NEW YORK. August 7.���A special cable to the Herald from Rio de Janiero,  Brazil, says: The minister of the interior and the chief of police have resigned. President Camnos Salles has appointed Sabino Barroso, who is deputy  for Minas Ceraes, minister of the interior, and Edmundo Muniz chief of police. Several other high officials, including the director of the medical college  1 and the director of the sanitary department, have also resigned. The political  situation is becoming worse overy day.  Statements by the brother of president  Campos Salles, blaming the present administration  and  the  political  system,  1 have contributed to aggravate the situa-  ' tion. The opposition newspapers have  also accused president Campos Salles of  i having imported furniture without paying duty on it. This charge, though not  proved, has increased the bitter feeling.  , The situation is regarded as precarious.  .Conclave of Knights Templar.  LOUISVILLE, Ky., August 7.���The official program for the 29th triennial con-  [ clave of Knights Templar, to be held  here tlie last part of this month, was  issued today by the executive committee, whicli has had over $100,000 to draw  on to make the features of the entertainment attractive. The.week will open  Sunday with public 'worship at the  Broadway Methodist church, conducted  by very eminent sir I. W. W. Cox of  "Washington, Iowa, grand prelate of the  grand encampment.

This is a function  that will be repeated each afternoon and  night during, the conclave, 400 well-  known Kentucky matrons and their  daughters serving on the reception committee at each or.e.  Another Gigantic Combine  PITTSBURG, - August 7.���The Times  tomorrow will say: Another vast industrial combination, one of the greatest that has ever been planned, is evidently under way, and two prominent  Pittsburgers are taking a leading part  in the consummation of the project,  which has for its. object the placing in  the power of one corporation the control  of the world's supply of window glass.  The proposed combine is to take in all  of the window glass manufacturers of  the< world, and if effected the business  would be conducted from Pittsburg, as  the nucleus of the organization is the  American Window Glass Company of  this city. This company practically controls the, window .glass business of the  United States and the only factories in  Europe that amount to anything are located in Belgium. e .  BRUSSELS, August 7���A representative of American capitalists'. named  Chambers, who is negotiating to acquire  the Charleroi Glass Works, had a three  hours' conference with the present owners of the works this afternoon. The  decision arrived at was not announced.  The glass company owns 40 furnaces and  values them at 500,000 franc's each.  PLEASANT FAREWELL SOCIAL  TENDERED   REV.  E.  W.  STAPLE-  FORD AT YMIR.

COLFAX, Wash., August 7.���Jack Downey of Spokane is dying at a farmhouse  near Garfield, with both legs cut off, Downey left Spokane yesterday afternoon on  the O. R. & N. for California, where he has  relatives.

Ho left here  yesterday afternoon to visit his folks in  California, saying to friends that he had  a. "bunch" of money, and did not intend  to stay here any longer.  Iowa   Reimbllcans   yesterday   nominated  A. B. Cummins of Des Moines for governor. J  YMIR, August 7.���Rev. E. "W. Staple-  ford, who has been pastor of the M. E.  church here, preached his farewell sermon on Sunday last. Last night a farewell social was tendered him by the  Ladies' Aid of the church and the citizens genei*ally. An.address and a purse  containing about 5100 were presented to  him by the boys���$40 being collected at  the Ymir mine. The address was read  by Pat Daly. The Miners' Union hall  was comfortably filled. A special musical program was rendered. The local  talent was assisted by Mrs. Murray and  Miss Geva Murray of Nelson. The piano  solos by Mrs. Murray were the best ever  heard in the camp. All the numbers  by Miss Kneeland were excellent, she  having, a well-trained and cultivated  voice. Following is the program: Guitar and mandolin, duet, "Danube Waves,"  Miss Kneeland and N. L. Kneeland;  vocal solo,. "Within a Mile of Edinboro,"  Mrs. Murray. As an encore she gave  '���Comiii' Thro' the Rye." Vocal solo,  "Sweetest Story Ever, Toldy" Miss Kneeland; piano ��� solo, "Weber's Last  Thought," Mrs. Murray; vocal solo, "The  Nightingale," Miss Kneeland; vocal solo,  "Tennisoh's Brook," Mrs. Murray; vocal  duet, "The Mandolin," MissKneeland,  Mrs. Murray. The recitation by Miss1  Geva Murray, "Who Was Santa Klaws,  Esq. ?.".." was very nicely rendered, but  it is not the" proper time to recite winter  poesies when the thermometer is 92 in  the shade. Rev. Mr. Young of the Kirk  gave a v rattling good: talk; which was  followed by a speech from Rev. Mr.  Stapleford. Ice cream and cake were  served by the camp's fairest, after which  everyone sang "Home, Sweet Home,"  and then turned their feetiets homeward. Mr. Stapleford left tonight for  Vancouver, .where-he will remain in  charge of the Homer Street M. E. church  for six weeks,.and then return to college, in.'Toronto to nut; in another hard  year's graft.    ���'. ������ ;  . H: Carr, who was superintendent of  the Dundee mine while in operation, left  yesterday for 'Frisco, where he intends  to reside permanently.  F. W. Hardy of Victoria University,  Toronto, a running mate of Rev. Stapleford, will arrive.in Ymir some time next  month and take charge, of the M.:B.  church here.  Rev. Father Ferland of Nelson has  been in the camp for the past few days.  Kelly, the man who fella distance of  over 30 feet at the Arlington mine,,Erie,  receiving internal injuries, and who has  been in the hospital here, came out yesterday on crutches.  Last "evening it was noticedthat quite  a brush fire was raging in the vicinity  of the, Porto Rico mill.' As everything  is dry around there, if the wind  keeps up, it will not be long in spreading  and many miners' cabins, etc., in the  hills will be destroyed.  Phil White, superintendent of the Wilcox, was in town yesterday, and \ says  ^that=over=1500^feet=of=-work==has=been=  done on that property���shafting, tunneling and cross-cutting. A 10-stamp  mill will be put in this fall. There are  over 1000 tons of ore on the dumn.  A meeting of the Dundee Mining Company will be held in Rossland on the  15th instant; It is said the company will  be reorganized, and that the mine will  resume opei'ations immediately after the  meeting. The Dundee property is as  rich as any in the Ymir camp, and its  starting un would mean much to the  city of Ymir. ' ,  Several claims have been jumped  around here. There's one of the cases  all pied up. Hotel keeper Miller accuses  William Edgar of jumping his claim, the  Little Horn, adjoining the Big Horn,  and has been abusing that gentleman  ever since. Tho Little Horn reverted to  the crown on August 1st, as no assessment work had been done during the  year. On August 3d, while Edgar, who  has claims on the Big Horn mountain,  was looking over the mountain, lie noticed that the Little Horn had run out,  and in order to save Miller re-staked the  claim in one of Miller's partner's name,  giving Miller a half interest. But Miller  don't seem able to get it thro' his nut  that he still has the same interest in the  claim that he always had. A lawsuit  is threatened.  Several new buildings are going up.  Judge Buckworth has cleared his two  lots and intends putting up a large  dwelling house. W. Steele is building  a cottage near the brewery. Other improvements are going on.  The government wagon bridge over  Hidden creek, which was washed away  by the water, will shortly be completed,  and will be much shorter than the. old  one.  John Thorburn has been appointed  temporarily as constable at Erie. Police  courting seems to be the chief industry  of that thriving hamlet.  At present Ymir is full of Rossland  miners. Every clay a dozen or more  strike this camp.  enskirch mausoleum near Potsdam. Emperor William has issued a decree ordering the army to go into mourning  for six weeks and giving minute details  as to how the mourning emblems are to  be worn. There will be no military music for eight days. Court circles have  been notified as to how the ladies and  gentlemen of the court must dress till  November 5th. The ladies are to wear  full mourning until August 2Cth, medium mourning until September 23d, and  minor mourning until November. Some  of the papers take exception to the  mourning orders. One paper referring  to the prohibition of public entertainments and musical and theatrical performances until after' the funeral, says  "it believes this will hinder to certain degree the purpose for winch it was designed. It contrasts with this, order  emperor Frederick's order upon the  death of emperor William I,'in which  he.declined to make any mourning regulations, leaving the people to show their  sympathy in their own way.  WASHINGTON, August 7.���President  McKinley today sent the following message of condolence to king Edward upon  the death of his sister, the dowager  empress Frederick of Germany:  State Department, Washington, D.

Bolles  claims he acquired the checks legitimately.  Three   masked   burglars   entered   the  American   Express   office   the  night   of  April 2Gth and escaped with.30,000 francs  after  dynamiting the  safe.:������.The   burglars left behind them a complete outfit of American burglars', tools.    Before  beginning  work  on. the  safe the  burglars bound and gagged the colored porter, who was f.siee;-) on the second story.  They overlooked  a   packet of-. French  bills and a number of !*xrld  pieces.    A  feature was that the policeman oh duty  in the vicinity h,eard and saw nothing  of the burglars, though the latter worked loudly and the r:ound of the two explosions necessary to open the safe was  ^suJRcieiLtJc^'iwakeiLJ-h^^^  top story of a building across the street  and cause him.to  descend  and  search  his own house for intruders.    The express company's office is located in the  center  of  Paris,   has  a long frontage  facing the opera house and is surrounded by business houses.   "Tom Edward,"  said to be a native of Chicago and described as leader of the. gang, was arrested    the    following    morning     and  Geoi'ge Humher, reported to be the second member of the gang, was taken into  custody  May  1.     In  his  pockets  were  found burglars' tools and a number of  checks that had  been stolen  from  the  express office.    On June Sth the police  of  Paris   arrested   a   notorious   woman  named May Churchill, known its "Chicago May," who was suspected of complicity with "Tom Edwards" in the robbery.   Finally in June last "Eddie" Gue-  rin of Chicago was also arrested by the  French police on the chai*ge of  being  one of the three burglars concerned in  the  express" company's   robbery.    Gue-  rin, it was said by the police, is the same  man who 10 years ago robbed the bank  of Lyons, France, of 50,000 francs.   The  police of Chicago assisted in the identification of Guerin by means of the Ber-  tillion measures of the man taken  10  years ago by the French police.  Torpedo Boats at New York  NEW YORK, August 7.���The torpedo  boats dishing and Winslow, which have  reached the city, had a difficult passage  from Norfolk. They are on their way  to join the North Atlantic squadron.  Lieutenant Douglass was in command of  both boats and lieutenant Stone in command of the Winslow. The Winslow  developed leaks in her fresh water tanks  and about 2 a. m. Sunday the water gave  out. The -dishing then ran lines to the  Winslow, a ticklish job at sea, and towed her for five hours. At that time  lieutenant Douglass discovered that the  dishing had only fresh water enough  to get herself into port. So the lines  were cast off and the Winslow ordered  to go ahead with salt water for her  boilers, although it is injurious to- the  pipes. The Winslow will probably be  laid up at the yard for repairs for a  week. The dishing is expected to leave  at once. The crews of the two boats  were completely fagged out.  . NEW YORK, August 7.���The Commercial Advertiser; says: As far as can be  learned, no communication has been received by J. P. Morgan & Co. or.by any  of the steel companies here from the  labor leaders since the conference of  Saturday last. Peace, howeyer, may not  be far away after all. It is learned that  independent influences , are at-.- work  which may surprise everybody within  the next few days. Mr. Morgan will not  say a word, but it is believed in some  quarters that he-has received important  communications from persons strong  enough and independent enough to  bring about a settlement before president '. Shaffer's order to strike takes effect. They who know Mr. Morgan say  that he will welcome any move that will  . hasten the end of the controversy, providing the fundamental objections he  urged on Saturday last are respected.  That something.is being done in the direction of amity is apparent from the  manner of the men here and the course  of steel stocks on the exchange.  PITTSBURG, August 7.���With the issuance of the general strike order of  president Shaffer it is not any longer a  theory that confronts' the public, but  an actual condition. As- far. as Pittsburg is concerned, although it is the'  headquarters of the Amalgamated Association, few men are immediately involved in the strike inNcomparison with  other sections, the total number throughout the country being almost 100,000  . men.  ' Following is the text of president  Shaffer's call to the. members of the  Amalgamated.Association:   '  Brethren���The officials of the United  States Steel Trust have refused to recognize as union men those who are now  striving for the right to organize. The  executive board has authorized me to issue a call on all Amalgamated men in  ���name and heart to join in the movement to fight for labor's rights. ' We  must fight or give up forever our personal liberties. You will be told that  you have signed contracts, but you never  agreed to surrender those contracts to  the United States Steel Corporation. Its  officers think you were sold to them just  as the mills were, contracts arid all. Remember, before you agreed to any contract tyou took an obligation .to the  Amalgamated Association. It now calls'  you to help~in the hour of need. Unless the trouble is. settled on or before  Saturday/August 10th, 1901, the mills  will clone when the last turn is made on  that day. Brethren,,this is the call to  preserve' our organization. We trust  you and need you. Come and help us  and may right [come to a just cause.  Fraternally, yours,  T. J.  SHAFFER.

PARIS, August 7.���A high official of  the French foreign office today explained to the correspondent of the Associated Press the nature of the difficulty  at Constantinople between the French  ambassador there, M. Constans, and the  Turkish government. There are two  matters pending between France and  Turkey, the affair of the quay company  ami a number of claims of Frenchmen  against the porte, the amount of which  was fixed and the payment promised  long ago. M. Constans has been unable  to obtain satisfaction in either matter  and in May he intimated that he would  be forced to ask for his recall if the  Turkish government persisted in its procrastination. " The French minister. M.  Delcasse. who returned to Paris yesterday, went to Rambouillct, dined with  presidont Loubet, spent the night at  Rambouillet. and returning to Paris today he will see the Turkish ambassador  this afternoon or tomorrow. It is possible that he may have to renew M.  Constans' intimation regarding his recall, but it is more than likely that the  incident will not reach that point. In  fact, it is probable that the matter will  be speedily settled in a manner satisfactory to France. The members of the  Turkish embassy here maintain diplomatic silence.  PARIS.

BIRMINGHAM, Ala., August 7���With  agonizing screams and his eyes bulging  from his head, John Wesley Pennington,  a negro, was burned at the stake near .  Enterprise, jA.labama, before a crowd of  500 enraged and determined citizens of  Coffee county this morning.    Tho mob  was composed of both whites and blacks,  andcthough the suffering man pleaded  for  mercy  and   frantically  endeavored*  to break the chains tliat tightly bound  him, not a trace of sympathy was shown  on the faces-that peered at him through  the flames.    Pennington had committed  a brutal assault upon'Mis. J. C. Davis,  wife of one of the most prominent farm- ���  ers of Coffey county, and had confessed ^  his   guilt.   .The   crime   was   committed  Thursday afternoon of last week while  Mrs. Davis was gathenng vegetables in  hei- garden.   Pennington choked the woman into insensibility, accomplished.his  intention  and   fled  through  the  woods  near by.   As soon as she regained consciousness  Mrs.   Davis   crawled   to  the'  house and told her husband what had  happened.    A large posse was quickly  organized  with   bloodhounds  and  they/  chased the negro until early this morning, when ho was captured in a swamp.  He was bound hand and foot and taken  to   the   Davis   home   for   identification.  News of the assault had been spread for, -  miles around Enterpi i-_e and every farmer in the  neighborhood  had joined  in  the  pursuit'   When   the  posse  arrived   ,  this morning at'Pennington at least 500  persons were gathered near the Davis'  residence.   A great shout went up when   -  the prisoner. appeal ed, but at a signal ,  the  men  withdrew   to   me   woods  and  quietly awaited the result of the meeting of Pennington and Mrs. Davis.  Mrs.  Davis recognized  him as her assailant  and the negro  broke down  and  wept.  He admitted having committed the assault and pleaded for mercy, but he was  dragged from the ho'".e to the woods,    '  where   the  crowd   had  gathered.    Evidently expecting the confession, several  citizens   had   driven   an   iron   into 'the  ground,   and   as   the   captors   appeared  with Pennington, both whites and blacks  were piling brushwood around the stake.  The  negro saw  his doom  and  with  a  scream of terror fell in a faint.   He was ,  quickly revived and dragged to the stake  while the crowd stood silently by.   The  frightened man was limp and had to be  held up while the chains were fastened    '  around   his  neck  and   body.    A  match  was applied to the pile and with oil to  .feed upon the tiny flame soon,burst into  a roaring fire.   The tei rifled negro again  pleaded for mercy in the most agonizing  tones   and   prayed   to   God   that   those  around him might perish.   Pie then called upon his maker for forgueness, and  as the flames leaped up and lapped his  neck, an unearthly shriek was heard and  the   man's, eyes   almost  bulged   out  of  their sockets.   By this time the fiie had  gained such, headway that nothing could  be seen except a wi lggling motion in tlie   "eifcTerof'fi re. ATsi 1 eilce foi '.owed aiftFi n  a few minutes the flames had subsided  sufficiently to show that Pennington's  head had fallen foi ward and hung limp  over the iron chain His body was  quickly consumed and nothing remained  but a pile of ashes. The ciowd then  dispersed.  (.  "  * >i  Hild Ud at Moyie.  MOYIE, August 7���[Special to The  Tribune.]���S. A. Scott was sandbagged  here at .1 o'clock this morning and relieved of over ?'-!00.

BUFFALO, N. Y., August 7.���The directors of the Pan-American exposition  have decided to ask the exhibitors of  various buildings to co-operate with  newspapers of this and other cities in  giving wider range of publicity to the  exhibit features of the exposition. Two  events of surpassing importance, the  visit of the president and later of the  duke and duchess of Cornwall and York,  were discussed by the board. No date  has been fixed for the president. A  committee, including president Milbur,  director general, will <ro to Canton tomorrow to make arrangements for the  visit of the president. President's day  will undoubtedly be on or about September 10th. The duke of Cornwall and  York and his suite are expected at  Niagara about October 9th, at which  time it is expected that he will consent  to have his itinerary changed slightly  so as to include the exposition for a  visit of, a day or  two.  The Tribune may not bo managed on  "business principles; but it has a code  of rules from whicli it does not deviate.  One of these rules is not to accept objectionable advertisements, and no one  lias ever seen advertisements of cure-all  medicines or Quack doctors in its col-  timns. Another rule is not to accept  free tickets from shows or circuses, and  it reauires the managers of shows and  circuses to pay full rates for all advertisements and reading notices published.  Living up to these rules may keep The  Tribune poor, but it makes its advertising columns clean, and leaves dirai  free for the sole use of local advertisers.  A   Sacramento''    (California)     judge  named Hart has an unenviable reputation for giving footpads sentences that  are practically for life.   The other day  ri he refused to accept a plea of guilty,  and sentenced a footpad for life.   Some  ������time before he sentenced three footpads  thirty, thirty-live, and forty-five years,  respectively,   for   a   crime  from   which  they  had  realized  thirty  cents  and  a  bunch  of keys.    Had these four foot-  * pads had monoy, or wealthy relatives,  the chances are they would now be out  on bail  instead  of serving long terms  in penitentiaries.  The expression, "Robbing Peter to  pay Paul," had its origin in.the rivalry  existing between Westminster abbey,  formerly St. Peter's cathedral, and St.  Paul's cathedral, in London. In 1550  there was a deficiency in the treasury  of St. Paul's. An appropriation of money  belonging to St. Peter's was made to  cover the deficiency. The people who  we're averse to the action asked the  question, "Why rob St. Peter's to pay  St. Paul's ?" Z.X--'    :  .'  The new cooling drink, Ironbrew.  D.R/|cARTHUR  & Coy  RALPH CLARE, I. O, NELSON,  Undertaker, flight Call 238, Manager  ' If a person'commits a crime in Canada, there is a trial without unnecessary  delay, and if there is a conviction, there  is immediate punishment. In the United  States there seems to be a different procedure, and there are as many delays  in criminal cases as there are in civil  cases in Canada. Ten years ago a murder was committed in King county,  Washington, and a man named Nordstrom was arrested for the crime, tried,  convicted, and sentenced to be hanged.  Since then; his case has been' reviewed  two or three times by the supreme  court of the state and twice-by the. supreme court of the United States. Last  week Nordstrom's atorney appeared before the United States circuit court at  Portland, Oregon, and asked that a writ  of habeas corpus, be issued for his client.  The application was denied, and it 'is'  now believed that the sentence of the  trial judge, pronounced ten years a.-*-*,,  will soon be carried out.  Before and After tne Boer War.  One   of   the   important   movements  which led to the war in South Africa  was the refusal of the Transvaal government to accede to the demand of the  mine owners that the black native labor  be foiced to work in the mines, no matter how much the owners saw fit to reduce  their  wages. ' These propositions  rame out distinctly in the inquiry held  ot Johannesburg in 1897.    The scheme  clea: y  outlined   by  representatives  of  the n'nes was that Kaffir skilled labor  ���*hoi;H be reduced as low as one shilling  and   sixpence   per   shift  and   ordinary  labor  lo  one  shilling  or   less.    If  the  Kaffir demurred and retired to his kraal,  the government should step in and by  piling excessive taxation upon him compel mm to return to the mines and work,  or starve.   The refusal of the Boer government   to   establish   what   would   be  virtual   slavery  in  the   interest  of  the  mines   cused  the  outlander  agitation,  and was largely responsible for the war.  With the British in control of the Rand  and Kimberly. it seems that the plans  outlined   are  to  be  carried  out  or  attempted    At least, that is the inference  from the reported statements of a Mr.  Stewait, an Englisman interested in the  diamond mines, and now in this country.  He says that a trust has been formed  to  control  the  supply  of  native  labor  . In the Transvaal and distribute it among  the mines  as  it sees  fit.    Wages  may  .oasily be lowered by the abolishment of  competition   for   black   labor,   and   the  Kaffir himself kept in hand by feeding  him  on  the  truck  system,  which" will  also  have  the  effect of  driving many  small shopkeepers out of business. Such  a consummation,  if  accomplished,  will  'consort badly with a British excuse for  the war, that the Boers were mistreating, grinding down,, and. enslaving the  native population.    Whether  the British, government   will   concur   in   these  plans may well be doubted.    The mine  trust, at least, will not have smooth sailing.   Members of a party in the United  Kingdom, by no means insignificant, are  -seriously proposing that the cost of the  ���war shall fall upon the men in whose  interest it was wajred.

Nearly all cultivation is carried on by  spading. To one who has never been in  Europe before, the working of the women in the fields with the men would  seem curious, but the same thing is done  in France, Germany, Austria and Belgium. It calls attention to the great  poverty of the poor. The thrifty, hardworking Portuguese in California have  been trained for , generations to hard  work and economy, and while unable  to save anything in their own count, y,  their pay being so small, in the United  States many of tliem make fortunes, as  do the'Italians.        .   ���'  *    *    * t  |j To the eye, from, the bay, Naples is  beautiful. To the nose, in the narrow  streets, it is not. The landing and getting your baggage is most disagreeable. <*It is a matter of surprise to many  that the steamship company does not  land the passengers more comfortably.  The shallow bay prevents thb big steamer from going to the custom house dock.  You board a steamer tender and go  ashore iii that, but your baggage does  not go ashore1 with you. You wait on  the dock an hour or more in the rain,  if it is raining, not knowing at what  hotel you can get rooms (during the  crowded season), and finally a barge approaches the dock. Few ornone of the  passengers speak Italian. Experience  teaches that the best thing to do is this:  Before leaving home liave your trunks  arid your heavy small baggage marked  on the ends with your initials in a circle  ;or a;diamond.   On landing grab one of  '.' the English-speaking guides. There are  generally a dozen or more. Give him a  slip of paper on which you have drawn  a facsimile of your mark and initials.  Tell him to get you a cab; he will tell  the driver what hotel you want; then go.  English is spoken at every good hotel  in Naples, the best are on the bay, on  the Via Caraciollov and Via Parteuope.  There is"one nearer the custom, house,  near the shops and theaters and car  lines, whicli was, new and good last  spring, the Hotel de Londres. When  you have selected your hotel, return to  the custom house, by which time your  baggage may be ashore. Examination is  a mere form. If you have .much baggage that can not go on a cab, send it  up by your hotel omnibus. Give tho  guide at least iive lire tor himself and  an extra one or two to pay the porters.  It is little enough. Do not quarrel with  him as some do. Treat him decently.  He intends to be useful and friendly.  He is not a thief. . He makes your entrance into a foreign country easy,  pleasant and secure. On the steamer one  hears  stories  of  the  rascality  of  the  'cabmen, guides and hotel servants in  Italy. I found none. Travelers somehow seem to get a crick in their brains.  They look upon a lire as if it were a  dollar. It is only twenty cents���less  in fact. Of course it is well to be cautious, but it is also wise to get rid of  that unexplainable travelers' crick in  I=the=brainr=If^you=get=into-a=squabble-  . with a cabman don't bother or try to  explain; he does not understand English, French or gibberish,, hut he does  understand Italian. Go to the hotel concierge, or porter; he is at the front door  and speaks Italian. The porters are all  wonderful fellows. They know everything that a tourist wants. The concierge will treat you better than he will  the cabby. The decision is law to the  driven And do not forget to give the  porter five or ten lire on leaving, depending upon the trouble you have given  him.   He is fully worthy of that pay.  *     a     *  What does it amount to? In Italy the  longest trip the average person takes  generally includes eight towns���Naples,  Rome, Florence, Venice, Bologna. Milan,  Turin, Genoa. Five lire per town, or  less than Ave dollars. Do.not look upon  it as forty dollars. It Is only eight,  and eight different amounts of practical information, in eight different towns,  are worth eight good American dollars,  and, in my humble opinion, are cheap  at that. I have never found, in any  other part of the world such gratitude  for little compliments and little generosities as I have found in Italy and  Franec. A man told about a scheme he  had: "In Florence, after my flrst breakfast there, I hired a cabby to drive me  around* for an hour through the princi-  , pal streets for two lire (forty cents).  He pleased me, anil when he stopped his  cab at the hotel it was an hour, and I  gave him, with the remark, 'Bene, bene,'  an extra lira. He lifted his hat, gave  me a beaming smile, and said: 'Gra*-ic,  grazie, signore.' A little mite of a compliment, a little mite of generosity, and  the pleasure it gave the cabby made  my lunch taste better." The little the  Italian laborer gets for his work is a  wonder���a lira a day. The poverty is  something awful.  There is little or no begging in Northern Italy, as there is in Naples. In the  southern part of the peninsula the people are mixed with the scum of the  Levant. In the north the country is  agriculturally rich, and there are no  crop failures. The irrigation system is  so good and the water from the mountains so plentiful that the plains of  Lombardy are a delight to the eye. The  people are a business people, serious.

The  average tourist stays in Naples, including Pompeii, Vesuvius, Sorrento, Amalfl,  ten days; Rome, two weeks; Florence,  flye or seven days; Venice, four; Genoa,  one; and Milan, one or three. Tourists  generally do hot see Turin, and Milan  and Turin gave me a distinct pleasure.  If may surprise Californians to know  th'at the big , opera house of Milan,  known as "La Scala." has been very  little used of late years. It belongs to  the past. Reputations were made there  formerly, but not now.  At 9 or 10 p, m. the lower floor of  the hotels in Italy are deserted. , The  smoking room sometimes is occupied until . half-past 10���for smokers are men.  The women generally go earlier. At  about 9 the next morning they all appear in the breakfast room, hungry-  eyed, keen-eyed, not for food, but to  see, more���to see those things their  friends in America have told them about  and that the guide books tell them that  they "must not overlook. A German told  me the reason for the early disappearance of the hotel guests is because they  are so tired. "I have: climbed mountains," said he; "nine, ten, eleven thousand feet high. I have been up and dqwn  ladders in mining shafts and winzes; I  have gone through stopes, squeezing  through them for 20 years, as superintendent and manager or examiner, of  mines; I have been on.my legs many  hours during the day, and then again at  night. But Thave never;done so hard a  clay's work as I have done in Italy sightseeing.

A li.'.le bother can be saved in Naples by providing one's self before leaving the hotel with the copper one-cent  pieces���centesimi���of the country. It  saves a little worry. In Naples and the  towns about, the children beg' in the  streets and the roadside. But they give  their little for the little that one is  expected to give. They run along rapidly by. the rapidly moving carriage,  singing or turning hand-springs, asking  for a "maccheroni." In France it is for  something to drink, but in Ttalj- it is  for food. They are nearly starved, they  earn so'little. This constant call is  sometimes irritating, and I found that  the American woman is more patient,  more generous, than her man. In the  churches one gives these little coppers,  and the guardian at the museum doors,  who takes your cane, umbrella, or parasol, expects some small gift when you  return���and it' is just that he should  get it. The charge for entrance is sometimes nothing, sometimes a lira.���Covington Johnson in San Francisco Argonaut.  Thorpe & Co. bottle it.

He has  been watching the trails in the vicinity of  the Columbia and Kootonay rivers in the  hope of heading off Tony Leyden, who  made his escape from the Nelson jail last  week. There are too many ways out of the  country for one man to watch, and in consequence Leyden is stil  at large.  * *   *  A petition has been received at Nelson  asking that a sum bo set apart from tho  appropriation for* roads and trails for the  Nolson riding for building a trail from  Maccaroni basin to tho Marris group of  claims. As tlie trail would be in tlio southeast riding of East Kootenay, the government agent at Nelson does not see his way  clear to grant the prayer of the petitioners.  * *   *  John McKane arrived In Nelson yesterday from the Lavina group in the Lardo  which he is developing, lie reports tliat the  .sacking of ore lias been commenced and  that tne estimate of the engineer is that  upwards of 2000 tons of sorted ore will be  shipped from .the, property this Winter.  '.I acre is already a large quantity of ore  out on tho damp, but it will be impossible  ro move it until the snow comas. The main,  vein orr tho group carries a galena ore in  wnieh occurs a large quantity of chloride  of silver. Tliis oro it is expected will aver-  ago $io0 to tho ton. It is upon this vein that  tlie principal work has been done and a  little figuring will show that 2000 tons of  such.ore will turn into large ligures. There  is another smaller vein upon the property  from wliich some very high grade copper  ore has been taken, but so far tho management olVtho Lavina have not taken it into  account. ' Samples taken from this vein  have given an indicated value of 20 per  cont copper.  * �� *  Tlie new schedule of prices agreed upon  by tlie members of the local Retail Grocors' Association will go into effect on  Thursday next. The members of the association say tliat no advance has been made  in prices, but they hope by tlie schedule  adopted to abolish the practice of some  grocers in making loaders of one or two  articles and selling them on a closer margin..thai, they otherwise would. The trade  'in three staples has .suffered in this way.  The lirst of these is sugar. In the schedule  this is now listed at 13 pounds for the dollar. In some instances this will cut a pound  oft' the.weight formerly sold for the dollar. Hams and bacon will also feel the effect of.-the new agreement. They have been  soiling at 17 and IS centn, nut on Thursday  they will go back to IS and 19 cents. An  advance will also be made in the price of  lard.

Benny, the proprietor of the  Sirdar hotel, which was'entered by masked  men on Sunday last, was in Nelson yesterday explaining to his friends just how he  folt when he was looking into the barrel  of the robber's revolver and kept his hands  up as high in tiie air as he could. Benny is  of tho opinion that the robbers were after  himself more than anyone else, lie makes  a practice of carrying all his money on his  person, and when, the robbers first made  their appearance they singled him out at  once and ordered him to stand off by himself. Benny says he took chances and held  out SfilJO on the robbers. As they came into  the room he got his pocket book out of  his hip pocket nnd dropped it on the floor  under  the table without attracting atten-  =tlon,=4Ulie=robbers=iii=seaEchlng=Benny=at=  once made for his hip pocket. They were so  completely disgusted that it would be impossible to identify them, but Bonny is  convinced that tho taller man of the two  was in his hotel a tew days before sizing  up the situation. Benny's description of  this man is tho only clow which the police  have as to the appearance of either of the  robbers. The ritle and shotgun which they  took from behind tlie bar of the hotel were  founa on the trail a short distance away.  It is thought that the robbers are now  safely over- the lino and there tiro but faint  hopes that they will be taken,, and even if  they v/e re It is doubtful if/sutiicient evidence could be secured against them t to  secure their extradition. Mr. Benny, says  that all told ho does not think the robbers  got. more than $75 out cf the several men  whom they held up in his hotel.  FINED   FOR   INTIMIDATION  ���Dick Varian the Culprit.  CASCADE, August 7.���[Special to The  Tribune.]���The Canadian Pacillo 'Railway  Company has made a move in the way of  protecting tho special watchmen whom it  has employed in looking after the bridges  on the Columbia & Western section. Since  the strike of the trackmen has been on the  company has had very little difiiculty -in  securing men for watchmen's' duty on the  several bridges, but somo difficulty has  been experienced in getting men who for  any length of time would withstand the  persuasion and intimidation of the trackmen and tlieir sympathizers. Several days  ago the company had three' men guarding  a bridge at Fife, a short distance out of  Cascade. These men were performing their  duties all right up to the 23rd of July,  when they were waited upon by upwards  of a dozen strikers on a handcar who came  down from Cascade, and by a mixture of  persuasion and threats of violence induced  tlie watchmen to get on the handcar and  go back to Cascade with them. This was  but one of a number of similar cases and  the oilicials of tho railway decided to make  an example of the offenders. The men who  made up the party, however, got wind of  the company'.'! intention and most of them  got across the line before they could be  gathered In. Dick Varian was one of them  who didn't, and the result was he was arrested upon a charge of intimidation. Tho  case   came   bofore   justices   o?  the  pealce ,  =Ang.us=Garriero n=o f=Gascade=an d=-Kr=UWMc=  Collum of Columbia this afternoon. The  principal witnesses for the company were  the three watchmen, Messrs. Dillon, McDougall and l-'l ippersoii. Tlieir evidence  clearly showed that intimidation had been  practiced upon them by a number of men  of whom Varian' was one, and that by reason of. such threats they wero induced to  (|ult the service of the company nnd return with tlie strikers. The case was established and the justices found the -accused guilty and imposed a line of .$20, or  In default ono month's imprisonment.  Try it. Iron brow.  Is  sold  everywhere.  Ironbrew.
