C, SATURDAY, AUGUST 3, 1901  FIVE CENTS  NELSON MINES AND MINING  GREAT   DANE  GROUP  OF  MINES  '    CHANGE OWNERS.  J. C. Drewry'JYesterday Obtained the  Controlling Interest and Will Form  a Company-for Development.  J. C. 'Drewry of Rossland yesterday  completed the purchase of the controlling interest in the Great Dane group  of claims. The group consists of the  Great Dane, White Star and Fisher  claims situated on Morris creek, the  north tributary'to' the St. Mary's river,  and known locally as the Sawyer group..  Tho group is one of the best developed properties in the St. Mary's district. The Avovk done so far consists  of a couple of tunnels run in on the  ledges and several big open cuts run  across the ledges in .different places to  determine their width. In speaking of  the present showing on the property,  Mr. Drewry said it was the largest lie  ever saw in view of the amount of work  done.  There are two strong ledges on the  property. One of them is from nine  to twelve feet wide, and is exposed for  the greatest width in the upper tunnel  and the lower cross-cut. The work done  upon it so far indicates that the ledge  carries...between 4 1-2 and 5 feet of.solid  galena, the galena in this case carrying  considerable quantities of copper pyrites,  copper assay made on the oro giving  returns of 6 per cent. Between this  body of ore and the hanging wall of  the ledge there occurs about six feet of  Avhat is said to be a good concentrating  ore, and on the hanging wall there is a  second paystreak of about a foot of  clean galena, which differs from that  .found on the footwall in that it carries  no copper values Avhatever. -*  On Uio second ledge the development  Avork done so far shows that ;it  carries about 2 1-2* feet of galena ore  at different points where it has been  cross-cut. This has been exposed in  the short prospecting tunnel wliich has  been run. in' on the vein. This ledger  is fully 12 feet .wide, but in. the work  done so far the second wall-has-not yet;  been encountered. The ledge carries  considerable quartz .Avith- generous  bunches of galena scattered through it,  but; so far there has not been sufficient  work done upon it to form a very correct estimate of its probable extent.  The , principal OAvners in the group  Avere the Sawyer Brothers of Pilot Bay,  Adolphe Lapointe and Avife of this city,;  and Fred Cogle, also of Pilot Bay. These  owners contributed a pro rata of the  holdings to the four-sevenths interest  acquired by Mr. Drewry, the deal made  being upon a basis of $40,000 for the  group. Mr. Drewry has commenced  ������������work at once upon the development of  the property and has let a contract to  the SaAvyer Brothers to run a tunnel  in on the Great Dane ledge for a distance of 200 feet. The SaAvyers are in  Nelson today purchasing their supplies  and will leave for the property tomorrow.  It is Mr. Drewry's intention to form a  joint stock company to take over and  develop the Great Dane group, the eapi-  ==tal-of=Avhich=-wilUbeJn=thc^neighborhood=  of $200,000, and the stock issued at par  so that the property will not be required  to pay dividends on watered stock. The  outlook is that a mill will be required  for the property* but in Mr. Drewry's  opinion this is a matter wliich can  afford to wait upon the development.  He has been aftor the SaAvyer group for  several months, and is naturally elated  at having secured control of it at jast.  In speaking of the St. Mary's district,  Mr. Drewry said be was confident that  it -will soon come to the front. There  are upwards of a dozen properties now  being" developed in a quiet way, upon  the greater number of wliich there ore  highly encouraging showings of copper  and galena, as well as some very good  gold quartz showings at the head of  Perry creek.  Mr. Drewry has just returned from a  visit to the St. Eugene mine at Moyie  and the True Blue mine near Kaslo, in  both of which properties ho is heavily  interested. He says the St. Eugene has  now a crew of about 100 men employed  solely upon development. The property  is riot shipping because the management  is awaiting the completion of arrange^  ments for the marketing of the ore.  The delay is not due to any difficulty  an securing a purchaser, as the management has already secured an offer from  one of the European smelting concerns  to take the whole of the St. Eugene output for the next five years. This, however, was a larger order than the management cared to enter upon and other  arrangements'are now being made. Mr.  Drewry. says he expects to hear within  the next few days of the settling of the  contract terms, when shipments Avill be  resumed. The normal capacity of the  St. Eugene is 100 tons of concentrates  per day, which means the milling of <-'  tons of ore in the 24 hours. The big  ore chute which the St. Eugene is now  developing in the three lower levels has  been proven to a depth of 250 feet below the level of the lake by means of  a diamond drill and the company intends to commence the sinking of a  three compartment shaft from the level  of the lowest tunnel for the development of this and the other ore bodies  which have been opened up on the  property. This shaft will be put down  for 200 feet as a starter so that two  levels can be run from it.  In speaking of the True Blue prop- *  erty, Mr. Drewry said he had every  confidence that ho had in it the makings  of the highest grade copper propeity  in the province. This property was formerly under bond to the Hall Alines,  but after a considerable sum had 1 *e-.i  spent in its development the "jond was  alloAved to lapse. From the maimer in  which tlie property has developed un<i*-!r  Mr. Drewry's direction he says :.Y_tt  tho failure of the previouse hold-irs of  the bond Avas in a measure due to their  mistake in determining the direction of  the vein so that Avhen their lower level  Avas run in they found that they had  missed the vein altogether. Mr. Drewry  now has the True Blue vein at a depth  of 100 feet, and for the last 20 feet has  been following a 16-inch streak of copper pyrites on the footwall, Avhich from  assays recently received, carry 20 per  cont copper. The ledge at this point is  nine feet Avide and in addition to the  paystreak mentioned carries a considerable quantity of brown oxides,' which  are so soft that they cam be shoveled  out without difficulty. An assay made  from these give an indicated copper  value of within a small fraction of 3  per cent. There is also a quantity of  decomposed rock in the vein, Avhich has  assayed 10 per cent in copper, but the  Id-inch paystreak is good enough in  itself. Mr. Drewry is now ctrivin-; to  strike the ledge at ���*. depth of 105 feet.  He expects to strike the ledge within  the next 10 days and if the valuss indicated''in the upper workings hold ont  he will consider that he has one of the  nicest little properties in the district.

SHOES FOR THE AUSTRIANS  Foreign Workmen Indignant.  -VIENNA, August 2.���The Fremden-  blatt publishes an interview with Herr  Bitza chairman of the " Shoemakers'  Guild, on the project of opening American retail shoe shops in Austria. Herr  Bitza sa'ys the Americans can sell 30  per cent cheaper than the local makers.  Tho excitement among the latter increases and violence is talked of if the  projected shops are opened.  LONDON, August 2.���The Austrian  government, replying today (Thursday)  to the shoemakers Avho had appealed for  a prohibition of American competition,  declined to interfere, says the Vienna  correspondent of the Morning Leader.  As soon as the decision of the government Avas known representatives of a  Philadelphia firm, Avho had been waiting, completed arrangements to take 1G  shops. They-will .place themselves under the protection of the United States  embassy if endangered by the threatened  violence.   '   Does Not Want Reciprocity.  MONTREAL, August 2.���The Montreal Star editorially claims that the Dominion of Canada does not Avant reciprocity with the United States. Tin  Star refers to the campaign conducted  in favor of unrestricted reciprocity bj  the Liberals in 1891, which resulted  their defeat. Concerning the transfer o  American industries across the Canadian boundary line the Star says Canada is familiar Avith that argument and  adds that the union of the spider and  the lly developed the energies and industries of both parties. Continuing,  the Star says: "We have already done  too much to build up the industries and  advance the prosperity of our neighbors.  We buy too much from them and sell  them too little, but there is grave danger  that in any new deal our lot may become Avorse.instead of better."  LONDON, August 2.���A discussion  arose in the house of commons tonight  over the colonial office appropriation,  and it gave the opponents of the government ample opportunity to bait Mr.  Chamberlain, Avhile making a motion  pro forma to reduce by ��100 the vote  out of which the colonial secretary's  salary Avill be paid. Sir Henry Camp-  bell-Bannerman, the Liberal leader, said  that in view of the patience Avith Avhich  the nation had for 21 months endured  Mr. Chamberlain's policy in South Africa, he thought it opportune to secure  a statement from the colonial secretary  as to the war situation. He went on to  point out that Cape Colony was now  invaded and overrun with Boers, and  he asked Avhat prospect there was of repelling the invaders, what the condition  of Cape Colony would be after the war,  Avhat Avas the prospect of famine as a  ..result of the government's "policy of  devastation" and ;where was Gape Colony's constitution, which appeared to  him to be under lock and key since the  declaration of martial law.  Chamberlain replied that farm burning.had been entirely abandoned and replaced by the policy of reconceritration  camps. . He continued that these were  humane and satisfactory institutions, as  has been shown by the fact that thousands of Boers came into them voluntarily. "The goyernment has the best  reasons to believe," continued the colonial secretary, "that a vast majority of  the Boers acknowledge themselves beaten and would gladly surrender and resume peaceful pursuits but for the comparative handful of irreconcilables who  were carrying on a guerilla war that is  rapidly degenerating into brigandage  j and absolute murderi Lord Kitchener'  is adequately dealing with the project  by ; establishing" block house cordons  within Avhich the peacefully inclined'can  safely settle and be protected."  Regarding the announcement by lord  Kitchener that commandant Ri lujiagor  had declared his intention to s/rioot all  natives in British employ, whether arm-  .eil or unarmed, Mr. Chamberlain said  the government had telegmvi 13'd lord  Kitchener to inform the Boer leaders  that such acts were contrary to.ii>-jli-ied  usage and that all guilty persons *f this  class if captured Avould be court-martialed and executed.  Mr. Chamberlain's declaration was received with loud cheers.  "There seems to be an impression that  we have come to some sort of an agreement with the Boers," said Mr. Chamberlain, in another portion of his speech,  "that natives are not to be employed in  this war, but there is no such agreement. Incursions into protected districts must be more severely dealt with  if there is to be 'sniping' of soldiers  from behind hedges, and even of women."  =^Rubbish^=cried=an=Irish=member.  the treasury and postponing the resumption of peaceful" industry. Tl*  time is clearly at hand if Ave rightfully  construe Mr. Chamb'erlain's words, Avhen  lord Kitchener will be instructed not to  treat as prisoners of war British subjects captured with arms in their hands.  It is a stage Avhich every guerilla conflict ultimately reaches and it is to be  deplored, since it may breed terrible  crimes, leading to terrible reprisals on  both sides, but the brigandage into  Avhich the campaign has degenerated  must be stamped out at any cost."  The -Times says: "The Boers have  announced their determination to shoot  every native who accepts service wir  the British or assists them in any Avay.  Mr. Chamberlain has., very properly telegraphed instructions that all Avho are  found guilty of such practices shall suffer death. We have carried leniency  very far, further than it has ever been  carried in the history of Avar and it is  time to think of the future in a business way."  The Invading Boers.  LONDON, August 2.���The Boers Avho  are invading Portuguese territory, say'*  the Lorenzo Marques correspondent of  the Daily.Mail, number 500. They crossed the line near Maiietzi and are now  going northward toward Komatipoort.  A Swiss farmer reports that his' farm  buildings have been burned and his  stock driven off and that his wife and  servants are missing. Although the  Portuguese authorities.are preparing to  make a vigorous resistance only 141 men  under captain Almida are pursuing the  Boers. ���'*;  VENEZUELA AND COLOMBIA  TELEGRAMS IN BRIEF FORM  FROM   VARIOUS    QUARTERS   OF  THE  GLOBE.

Fbil-  11 pa Avill issue a circular tomorrow addressed to tlie customers of his Iirm announcing that he will be able to resume  active operations on the Board of Trade  by next Tuesday or Wednesday at the  latest, possibly by Monday.  Mr. Chamberlain retorted that he met  some ladies who had been assaulted in  this way. "If things have ihanged frcm  bad to Avorse in Cape Colony,' "ie continued, 'it is because the -Jape rebels  have found rebellion a cheap, interesting and even amusing performance.  Then, there has been mistaken leniency,  and this Avas the policy in the past.  Botha, Dewet and Schalkburger do not  say that the war was caused by the raid.  They say they are fighting for their independence. It is nonsense to speak of  offering terms to men who say it must  be a fight to a finish. This is now the  policy of the government  Sir Edward Grey, Liberal Imperialist,  expressed bitter disappointment at the  tone of Mr. Chamberlain's speech, although he agreed with the general military policy of the government. He said  the colonial secretary had dealt carelessly with tho subject of employing native troops and had not distinguished  between Africans and highly-trained Indian troops.  John Redmond said Mr. Chamberlain's speech was a "candid, if somo-  Avhat brutal exposition of the government's policy," and he prayed to God  that the resistance of the Boers might  be strengthened.  The debate was continued for an hour  after Mr. Chamberlain's speech and the  amendment to reduce the salary of the  colonial secretary was rejected.  LONDON, August 3.���Mr. Chamberlain's declarations on behalf of the government in the house of commons that  great severity Avould be used hereafter  in dealing with Cape rebels and that  Boers shooting captured blacks Avill, if  taken, be executed, coupled with the assurance that a considerable number of  troops will be brought home at the end  of September are treated by the morning papers as the beginning of the thi'  period of the Avar. The Standard, Daily  Chronicle, Morning Post, Daily Telegraph, Daily Mail, Daily Graphic and  Daily Express rejoice at the "government's resolute attitude."  The Daily News, on the other hand,  regards it with uneasiness and apprehension, and the Morning Leader as  "the opening of an epoch of terror and  shame." The Standard says: "The pestilent activity of a small section is keeping the whole vast area in a state of  tumult, throwing an enormous cost on  SAN JUAN DE PORTO RICO, August  2.���Mail advices received here from Venezuela and Colombia say the censored  cablegrams Avhich the Venezuelan government allOAVs press correspondents to  foi'Avard from Caracas are inaccurate.

General  Uribe-Uribe is reported to be on a  month's leave from Bogota, the capital  of Colombia, Avith less than 3000 men.  Battles are said to be imminent. The  Venezuelan revolutionists Avere. at San  Cristobal and the Colombian re\-olution-  ists were at Cucuta Avhen the mail advices Avere forwarded.  WASHINGTON, August 2.���The political situation in the neighboring republics of Venezuela and Colombia in South  America and the possibility of Avar between these tAvo states is attracting considerable attention in diplomatic circles. Should Avar actually result, the  authorities in each country Avould not  only have to deal Avith their foreign  enemies but also Avith their domestic  foes, as each of the countries uoav has  Avhat practically amounts to a civil Avar  on its hands.  . Neither the Colombia nor the Vene  zuelaJegations-here-has much^direct. iii;_  formation and the cable reports are ex  ceedingly conflicting. The officials at  the Colombia legation arc at a loss to  understand the report of president Caa-  tro's declaration of martial law on the  ground that his country is being invaded by Colombia. The revolution  headed by Dr. Calviras, who crossed the  Venezuelan border from Colombia where  he had made refuge, is to be in no sense  an invasion by Colombians. Dr. Calviras belonged to tlie party of Audradc,  who was overthrown by Castro, and it  is stated in diplomatic circles that ho is  simply heading a rebellion of Venezuelans against the latter's authority. No  definite information has been received  hero regarding the Avhcreabouts of gen-  oral Uribe, who in his turn is heading  a movement against the present government in Colombia from the Venezuelan  side.  Tho last news of his whereabouts was  that he was at Marscaibo and had not  yet crossed into Colombia, where it was  supposed he would attempt to effect a  juncture Avith Narin, a noted guerilla,  who is still carrying on a vestige of  Lhe last revolution in the mouutai.m of  the central range of the Andes.  At the Colombian legation here the  movement headed by Uribe is not considered at all serious thus far. A report rceived here on July 26 last gave  news of a projected simultaneous invasion of Colombia from Venezuela, Ecuador and Nicaragua. Nothing has been  heard of the movement since then.

PITTSBURG,  August 2.���The   situation in the Amalgamated steel strike is-,  anything but favorable to an amicable  adjustment of dispute between the Association and the  United  States  Steel  Corporation.   As far as can be learned  president Shaffer of the Amalgamated^  has not received anything from the New-  York officials of the company regarding  a  further  conference  except  the  tele-'  gram which it is said arrived last* night  and which-declined a further discussion  of the question  at issue between  the  labor leaders and the company.  It is said that beforo a general strike  is ordered the oilicials of the United  States Steel Corporation will bo "fully  informed of the intention of the Amal- *  .zam'ated Association officers if more  favorable terms are not promptly pre- '  sented for the consideration of the  board. A reasonable time wilt then bo  given before the extreme measures pro  resorted to hy the Amalgamated Asso-~  ciation for another conference. If refused the strike will be extended to all  the plants controlled by .the big steel  corporation Avhere the Amalgamated Association has a footing, and it will be  the bitterest struggle between capital  and labor over seen in this country. In  the big plant sot the Federal Steel Company, the National Steel'Company and  the National Tube Company all the or- *  ganized men will be callrfd out arid every  effort made to close the mills. "   -  CLEVELAND, August 2.���It is assert- -  ed that the steel corporation has given  ;  authority to its agents to gather all colored iron workers possible and to center  them at the various points of the strike.  SAN    FRANCISCO,    August    2.���An  early settlement of the trouble between  'the Employers' Association and the City  Front Federation   now  seems probiiblo  and an early end of the strike is antici-   '  pated.   The labor leaders and prominent  ���merchants   are  hopeful   that  tomorrow  at the latest will see peace restored 'and  that on Monday the strikers Avill return  to their former employments.  SEATTLE,. August 2.���A temporary  injunction restraining the strikers at  Northport, Washington, from attempting to interfere with the employment of  non-union men in the Northport smelter  has been signed by judge Hanaford of  the United States district court. The  order is sweeping in its terms., The injunction is made returnable in Spokane  September 18th;  NEWARK, Ohio, August 2.���Lines of  the Newark street railway and the Newark and Granville road, operated by tho  same company, were stopped today by a .  strike. The cause of the strike is not  known, as neither men nor officials will -  talk. The strikers demanded 17 1-2  cents per hour for a 10-hour day and 25  cents for overtime.  All Prizes Are Drawn.  EL RENO, O. T., August 2.���The drawing of winning numbers in the United  States land lottery was concluded today,  K'.OOO envelopes having been taken from  the wheels, 0500 for each land district. The  crowd about the platform on which the  drawing took place was much smaller than  on previous days. Beginning August (ith,  123 names In each district will be called  dally l'or ��0 days for the filing of homestead entries.. The estimate Is made by u  government oillcial that lu each land district 1000 of the C.iOO numbers will not be  taken ln lhe GO days because of homesteaders who will be disqualified or who  will leave the country, believing*- their  claims to be worthless. This will leave  only 3500 persons who will make entry In  their respective districts. Two thousand  claims will be left for the wagon emigrants and others who havo been in the  country for months and failed to draw a  number. j\t the end of GO days these persons can go Into their land olllce and ille  or settle upon n homestead in advance of  any pother person. They can remain on the  land'three months before filing entry.

The Buffalo Eegatta.  BUFFALO, August 2.���The last day's  racing of a four days successful regatta  under the auspices of the Buffalo Yacht  Club brought out some close finishes and  two surprises. Tlie Beaver, the fast Canadian boat, was defeated by the Echota  of Buffalo, and the Vesta of Toronto,  which ran away from her competitors in  Wednesday's race, finished a bad third  today 'hi tho 35 foot class. The Marco of  Buffalo won the event and the Pedro of  Rochester finished second. The boats sailed  over a nine mile course. The wind was  light during the first six miles. It freshened considerably on the last leg and the  vneht.s dossed the finish lino in a srx nile  breeze. The race between the Beaver and  Echota was close and the crew of tlie  latter boat won the race by good seamanship. They made the last turn together. By clever management the Echota  wns worked to windward, blanketing the  Beaver. She held her positiorr to the end,  crossing the finishing lino half a minute  ahead  of the Canadian  boat.  Stories of Bender Family.  DENVER, August 2.���The Republican  prints an interview with Edward York  of Kansas City, a brother of Dr. York,  whose disappearance three years ago led  to the search of the home occupied by'  the Bender family and the discovery of  his remains buried beneath the house.  According to the interview, Mr. York  said: "I cannot too highly condemn  the sensational reports that have appeared from those who pretended to  know all about the Bender case and who  make fantastic claims that the Benders  have been killed and buried and that  they have seen their graves. Absolutely  nothing is known of the whereabouts  of the family, and for all I know the  Benders may be alive and well today.  I have kept carefully in touch Avith all  the investigations that are being made,  but the family has not been seen since  the week my brother was murdered. All  reports to the contrary are false."  Nearing the End.  PEKIN, Adgust 2.���The protocol committee of tho minister-- of the powers lias  virtually finished the draft of the protocol  and will submit the same for approval  to the other ministers. All questions ot  principle have boen settled and the protocol will be signed within the course of a  few days, unless there should be some disagreement as to the phraseology resembling the discussion that arose over the  word "Irrevocable" in the early stage of  the negotiations. Should such a hitch occur, the signing may be Indefinitely delayed.  I   *l  n THE  TRIBUNE:  NELSON, B.

There would be no question as to Mr. Foster's election against  any candidate that could be nominated  by the Sifton Liberals of Manitoba.  There would be as little question as to  his defeat if he had to meet R. L. Richardson single-handed in Lisgar. The  election of lion. George E.

Mr.  Sifton has disgusted the independent  Liberals of Ontario by identifying the  Laurier government with his attempts  to unseat and disqualify R. L.

What is practically an abandonment  of the Bonner's Ferry-Kuskonook branch  of the Great Northern railway should  be an object lesson to the people of  Victoria and Vancouver who are shouting for the building of branch roads  that will give them a chance to figure  on a share of the trade of Kootenay.  The Kuskonook branch of the Great  Northern cost at least ?500,000, and it  has not earned operating expenses. Had  it been subsidized by the province, what  permanent benefit would the people of  the province have derived from their  outlay of capital? None whatever! Some  of the roads that are clamored for now  would be no more profitable, if built and  operated, than the Bonner's Ferry-Kus-  How War Was Averted,  The Paris Figaro continues its interesting' revelations concerning the private opinions of the late president Faure  of France. The Figaro now turns to  the "Schaebele affair," in which it is  shown how prince Munster von Derne-  burg averted what threatened to be another war between France and Germany.  It will be remembered that Schaebele  was arrested 15 years ago by a German  detective named Gautsch on the Franco-  German frontier. The difficulties which  followed the arrest produced a war scare  in Europe. According to M. Faure,  France's assertion that Schaebele had  been arrested on French territory was  bitterly contested by prince Bismarck.  A letter from Gautsch to Schaebele,  summoning the latter to a conference,  was found. This letter was immediately  sent to 3VI. Herbette, French ambassador in Berlin, but the latter had found  prince Bismarck so unfavorably disposed that he hesitated to entrust such  an important document to him. At  this juncture prince Munster von Derne-  burg, who was visiting Berlin, called  upon M. Herbette, saying he ardently  desired the maintenance of peace, .-md  offering to aid the French minister.  When the Gautsch letter was shown to  him the German diplomat said:  "Give it to me; {conilde it to me; I  will bring it back at 3 o'clock."  M. Herbette hesitated to turn over the  letter. Prince Minister demanded the  original. M. Herbette finally consented  and entrusted France's trump card to  the German ambassador at Paris. Prince  Munster went to prince Bismarck and  showed him the Gautsch letter. Bismarck angrily asked the diplomat what  business ho had to attend to M. Her-  bette's commissions. Munster firmly replied that he had only'come,,to warn  Bismarck and that he was going to show  the, letter to the emperor of'Germany.  This he did. The emperor read the letter carefully and said:  "Then Schaebele was under a flag of  truce; if we do not release that man  no one will ever dare to send a Hag of  truce into a Prussian camp. He must  be released. I will at once give the  order and you can tell Herbette what I  have done."7 ', "������". "'  A few hours later Bismarck set Schaebele at liberty" and the war cloud rolled  away.

Four of the Coast dailies printed the  Mine Owners' Memorial to the Dominion  i government, and all save one (the Vic-  " toria Times) gave it slight editorial  comment. They recognize that the facts  regarding our people paying the Dominion a greater tax per capita than the  people of other provinces was so clearly  set forth by premier Dunsmuir and attorney-general Eberts when at Ottawa  that a rehash of the arguments they  used will avail little now, even if presented in the shape of a Memorial addressed to his excellency the governor-  general. The remainder of the Memorial is so silly, that the Times, even,  tieats It with silence. This should he  takn as an admission that there has  been altogether too much whining over  the supposed wrongs of the class who  promote and manage British Columbia  mining companies, and that it is high  time to stop sniffling and accept laws  that are as good as those of any other  country and conditions that are no more  onerous than those existing in countries where mining is successfully carried on.   Bernard McDonald can send agents  broadcast over the United States, and  through misrepresentations made by  these agents can induce men to come  to Northport, Washington, to work in  the smelter at that place of which he  Is general manager. Then Bernard McDonald, after all this, can go down to  Spokane, Washington, and have a good  time with the boys.

The faction opposed to Galliher favored, although not  openly, the Labor candidate at the Ust  election, and are working on the same  lines now, that is, to bring about a  coalition of the Labor men and (he  Liberals. As tho Labor men believo  they outnumber the Liberals, they claim  they will have the big end of the -leal  when It comes to a division of the offices and the spoils of victory.  R.

CORONATION PREPARATIONS  And Obner Pithy Paragraphs.  Max O'Rell in his short cables to the  Now York Journal presents the following: ..   ,,j  On his return to England in November next the duke of Cornwall will be  created prince of "Wales. As soon as  preparations are finished at Buckingham  palace king 'Edward' and queen Alexandra will remove there from Marlborough  houso which will he handed to the new  prince. The king has given to the heir  presumptive for a country residence  frogmore house in "Windsor forest,  which used to be inhabited by the duchess of Kent, queen Victoria's mother.  The king and queen will keep Sandring-  ham as the country house of their predilection.  * *   *  It will take a year to make the elaborate preparations for jthe coronation.  Picadilly is to be widened at the expense  of, beautiful Green Park. People are  already making engagements of windows to view the procession which will  take two days going over a route 10  miles long.. As much as $2000 will he  paid for the windows, as the landlords  of houses on the route ask tremendous  prices for rent, and the rent of many  will be paid in full by letting a few  windows. There will be speculation,  money made and money lost.  . *     *     a.  Earl Russell will serve three months  in Holloway jail for bigamy, and for  that uninteresting case all the lords  turned out in ..their velvet and ermine  gowns. The trial cost an enormous sum  of money. The house of commons will  have no more of it. As the holders of  the public-: purse they will pass a bill  that will enable peers to be tried before  ordinary tribunals.,Perhaps one day the  English will also0discover that a man  in plain clothes is sufficient to inilicc  six months on a common pickpocket and  suppress gala ---'carriages, trumpeters,  wigs and ermine. What prevents us  from feeling any sympathy for Russell  is,that after the experiences of his first  marriage he should again have a taste  for matrimony.  ���������.-���   '������-.. ...��- *   * '.  Now that Rosebery. has practically  seceded from the Liberal party aiid declared he will never again seek office,  the Conservatives will he eomfortabi.-.  in power for 20 yearsv If the Liberals  ever again are a party it will be under  some other,name that they will succeed  in getting the ear of the nation. "Where  are the days when the Liberal party  conted In its ranks the duke of Argyll,  the duke of Devonshire, Gladstone, John  Bright, Chamberlain and sir Charles  Dilke? An illustrious list, indeed! Now  the leader of the party is a nonentity.  Rosebery is out of it, Harcourt useless;  only Asquith is clever, John Morley is  a pedant.  * *   *  To break the monotony of life on the  surface of the earth we are all now  concerned about submarines and 'balloons. After' the success of Dumont  navigating in the air around the Eiffel  ���tower,   we^ have   a   Fr-*nchman,_JDela^  ���gar'derwli6~Kars_in"veiitea" a most successful navigable balloon.   He made an as-  ' cent at Valenciennes and appeared to  have his airship under perfect control,  and, after describing a series of curves  at a considerable altitude, descended  without difficulty. Another young  French aeronaut, Bassan, will in a few  days cross Russia in his balloon. It  will take him four days, during which  he will remain in tho air in the car of  the balloon. Soon we will go to you  that way instead of patronizing the  White Star, Cunard and American lino  companies.  * e     *  The Irish are a gallant nation. A few  days ago an Irish judge was delivering  judgment on an action brought by two  charming ladies, and he began thus:  "Everything In .this case is plain except  Mrs. Murphy and hor charming sister."  This reminds me of a remark once made  by lord Morris, the well-known Irish  judge of appeal. A very pretty woman  was giving her evidence in the witness  box. "Are you Irish ?" said lord Morris. "No, my lord, I am not," replied  the lady. "And that is another grievance for Ireland," gallantly rejoined his  ,lordship.  * *   *  Never have the American millionaires  [been so conspicuous on this side of the  > Atlantic as they have been this year,  i They have been the heroes, the lions,  [the talk of.the Paris and London season. They have been feted, banqueted,  lat-homed, photographed and- carica-  Iturcd. They have bought fleets, castles,  [shootings, and the time seems to be  ���not very, far distant when Europe will  [be run by an American syndicate. For  |my part, I would not regret it. Who  Jknows? It may be the best thing that  [can happen to that poor old Europe;  Ithat dear old Museum of Antiquities.  ['Meanwhile there is pretty well accrcd-  lited rumor that the king of England  [does not care for Osborne house, Isle  Jof Wight, where queen Victoria breathed  [iier last, and this royal castle will come  rinto the market. May be that soon the  iStars and Stripes will float on the top  I'of that house.  * *   *  Was it not the California Silver King  (who, on the occasion of his daugnter's  liwedding, wrote to the town council of  [Paris t.Q ask for the loan of the Arc-de-  iTriomJphe,  just to  pass  the  redding  THE CANADIAN  BANK OF COMMERCE  WITH WHICH IS AMALGAMATED  THE BANK .OF BRITISH COLUMBIA.

Being told by the councillors that the arch was not to let,  he merely replied: "That's all right;  name your price and I will buy it." I  don't think I have ever been accused  of bi*agging about my "noble ancestors."  There is one, however, of whom I am  particularly proud, and that is Abel  Blouet, my great unelc, the architect-  academican, who mado the Arc-de-Tri-  onuilie.  *   �� ��������  Really the English are suffering from  a self-complacency for which they are  paying dearly in the Transvaal and for  which they may have to pay dearer still  in some other parts of the world. Although they have the reputation of being the most practical people on earth,  the}'- often act like children living in a  fool's paradise. A French team has  beaten them at football, French and  American crews have beaten them on  the river, and yesterday I received a  letter from an Englishman requesting  me to be kind enough to tell him if  French youth ever indulged in--manly  games. The naval maneuvers now going on in France they call a perfect revelation, and an English journalist, commenting on the subject, says: "Nothing  is omitted, nothing neglected, and the  science of war is studied witli a care and  a precision of mathematical-exactness."  7 " #'���' *'  * '   -  "Woolniarans, one of three Boer delegates who went to. America and had a  somewhat cold reception there as well  as in Europe, was one of the most typical members of the late Raad, or Boei'  parliament. It was he who objected to  the government house in Pretoria being  insured, "'because if it was the will of  God that that building should be burned  down it was wicked to commit any act  that might be regarded as a criticism  of the Almighty's ways." VIn 1893 1 had  the unique good fortune to be present  at a sitting of the Raad when Dr. Leyds,  the minister of state, proposed a scheme  for ridding the Transvaal of the niuch  dreaded locusts. Woolmarans rose to  the occasion. "The locustsp" he said,  "were sacred' insects sent by God for  the punishment of our sins, and we have  no right to attempt to'-jnterfere with  them. Remember the plagues of Egypt."  This illustrates the modernity and intelligence of the Boers. . The scheme was  rejected.  THE ENGLISH NOT SO SLOW  !       When Forced to Act.  Three years ago, according to the  London Daily Mail, an English company,  Dick, Kerr & Co. of Preston, secured  a contract to supply the whole equipment of electric tramways in Barcelona  and Madrid, only to find that the articles required, could not he manufactured in England. They accordingly executed the contract in the capacity of  selling agents for American manufacturers. Feeling humiliated by this experience, for Dick, Kerr & Co. were for  a quarter of a century the largest tramway contractors iu Great Britain, they  flgtermined^to^go-iiito^the^nianufacture-  cf electric railway appliances in earnest,  and two great factories are rapidly Hearing completion at Preston. "What was  a bare flejd of 15 acres in the June of  one year," says the Mail, "was the site  of the best equipped electrical engineering works and car works in Europe in  the following June. The firm which  three years ago was reduced to the  status of a mere commission agent when  dealing with electrical tramways, depending on American manufacturers for  its supplies, can now supply 4000 electric  motors a year from its works and turn  out four finished tramcars a day. It  can take in hand the whole tramway  undertaking of a town���providing a complete service from beginning to finish  ���track, rolling stock, electric equipment, generating station, and execute  all the work within 12 months. It is  now laying down electric tramways in  Calcutta, and causing the American consul in that city to send home reports  lamenting the lack of American enterprise. It has beaten all firms in prices  as well as time in executing a tramway  contract in Cape.Town."  In starting these works Dick, Kerr &  Co. sent to the United States for men  to design the new works but while they  were making these efforts they had to  encounter an effort on the part of Amer^  ican manufacturers to crush this rising  yo*mg English industry, They had entered into an alliance with the Walker  Company of Cleveland, Ohio, the third  largest American manufacturers of electric traction appliances in the United  States, but the Walker company was  absorbed by one of its competitors,  which, had its own offshoots in Europe,  and would not supply the British manufacturer. Dick, Kerr & Co, had for a  time to get their supplies in a roundabout way, but the absorption of the  Walker company was of some advantage  to them, as they were enabled to secure  the services of the ablest officials of  that company, whose experience was invaluable. Among these was Mr. Armstrong, a young Canadian, with wide experience of traction work, under whose  charge the electric traction department  in London was placed. Already the firm  is executing more than half of the tramway work in Great Britain. The Portsmouth town council, for instance, gave  an order for a complete electrical tramway equipment at a cost of ��^50,000.  The whole system had to be complete  IMPEBIAL BANK  OIF    O-^aST-AJD-A.  HEAD  OFFICE, TORONTO.  Capital        -       -       $2,600,000  Rest       -       -       -    $1,850,000  H. S.

This is an excellent example  of the energy with which British manufacturers can, when convinced of the  need for action, throw themselves into  the work of remodeling their plants  and methods.  American Girls in Paris.  Miss Becker, the reputed fiancee of  consul general Holloway of St. Petersburg, and sister-in-law of senator Mitchell of Milwaukee, has lived for the last  two years among the students of the  Latin Quartier, and takes a practical  interest in their welfare. "The number  of American girls here studying art and  music is enormous," said Miss Becker  recently. "They are all over the Latin  Quartier from the Boulevard St. Michel  to _��� the Boulevard Montpainasse. Most  of "them live upon three or four dollars  per week. Mrs. Davis and her daughter  from Boston pay ?70 a year as rent of  their pretty flat. True, it is-the flrst  story one meets when coming, down  from heaven; nevertheless, it is not too  high for even great composers like Massenet to climb. The girls study hard;  they love to make pilgrimages to the  tomb of Marie Bashkirtseff at the cemetery at Passy, and the more romantic  of them sometimes shed a tear over the  grave of Abelard and Heloise in Pere  Lachaise. Pope's poem upon this unfortunate pair is the piece of literature  best known to our American girl students. They frequently dine at restaurants for a franc. I have -seen some  , pretty frescoes done by some of the  girles in out-of-the-way restaurants.  Doubtless they are potboilers. The  question of nude models does not bother  them very much; they go to Julien's  .and other schools arid study from the  nude as a matter of course. Perhaps  they, woiild not do it in the United  States, but if they study here they must  follow the rules of the class: but the  girls do not like to have male students  among them when studying from the  nude, for the risque remarks which  Marie Bashkirtseff used to make about  models are handed down-by tradition."

Thompson, formerly  chief of the tire department. It is dated  from Krugersdorp, and *cing the lirst letter written by Thompson since he left  this city contains considerable information which has already appeared in the  letters of other members of the constabulary. Thompson says the country in the  vicinity of Krugersdorp very much resembles -lortlons of the Northwest Territories. Since they have been on active service' there have been numerous losses  among the constabulary, but so far the  men from Kootenay have escaped. Thompson says that the members of the force  are not very well equipped. They are short  of horses moro especially and some of  them at the time at which he wrote were  still lighting in civilians clothing. Tho  members of the force have been told that  if they are short of horses the Boers have  plenty and they are proiiting by the hint.  In view of this Thompson says that the  lariat which was presented to him by P.  J. Russell will probably come in useful  in improving the mounts of the force. The  men on the force know nothing of the progress made by the troops engaged in pacifying the country, as the local papers are  not permitted to print any war news.  AVhen Thompson wrote the Nelson members of the force were all well.  j^^^i^ll^S^^^I^^K^^sg^^^s^;^^  TELEPHONE 27  w        ��a_w^m_tsO        rifinCwrUtiaHMti <  PAINTS, OILS AND GLASS.

The dry ores arc in demand  and the treatment charges havo been)  reduced, giving smaller prospects every  encouragement to ship. It requires but 74  tons to equal the total export of last year.
