C, FRIDAY, AUGUST 9, 1901  FJTE CENTS  NELSON MINES AND MINING  LEGAL ACTION TO WIND UP GRANITE MINE AFf AIRS,  Duncan  Mines Company Sues to Recover Judgment for $140,000.  Other Mining Matters.  A move was made yesterday-in. the  winding up of the Granite mines when  an application "was made before judge  Forin in the case of the Duncan mines  vs. tlie Granite mines for the sale of the  interest of the defendant company in the  Granite, Red Rock Fractional, White  Swan, Royal Canadian, Colorado, Roy  No. 2, Poorman, Hardscrabblc, White,  Mymer, Election and Millsite mineral  claims, as well as water rights to CO  inches, of water from Sandy creek, 250  inches from Eagle creek and 250 inches  from Sandy creek, in order to realize  the amount of tho plaintiff's judgment  against tho defendants for tho sum of  $1*10,000. The application was made by  A. M. Johnson for the plaintiff company,  the Duncan mines, and was not opposed.  The order asked for was made conditional upon no cause being shown  by tlie'defendant company to the contrary before August 12th. The Granite  mines was a subsidiary company to the  Duncan mines and the judgment in question represents the amount of a loan advanced by the parent company for tho  development of the properties taken  over by the Granite mines. Pending the  settlement of existing difficulties it is  not likely that anything will be done  in the way of resuming work upon any  of the properties affected by the recon-'  struction now going on in London.  M. S. Davys, who was formerly superintendent of the Silver King mine, is  at present serving as consulting engineer for .the Hewitt mine in the Slocan  in the place of Trafford Wynn, who is at  present on a trip of inspection to mining properties in South'-Africa. The  Hewitt is at present employing a crew of  30 men, who are taking- out about 10  tons of high grade ore per day. Being  a dry ore the- product of the Hewitt  is in great demand-and the owners1 of  the property, a Spokane syndicate,-have  received, a--very."advantageous rate for  treatment'at the "Nelson smelter. There  are, at present several thousand sacks  of ore at the Hewitt awaiting shipment,  and as the company's tramway is now  in running"-order it will be moved out  rapidly. This ore, it is expected, will  net the company from $20 to $25 per  ton. The principal development now  being done upon the property is the  driving of a 1200-foot" tunnel, which  will give an added depth of 400 feet on  the vein. It is now in about one-third-  of the distance.  E. Rammelmeyer, who .for several  months has been in charge of.the Emily  Edith mine near Silverton, has resigned  rhis position as manager of that property. Under the direction of Mr. Rammelmeyer >the Emily Edith has been  moved out of the prospect -class into  that of a well-developed mine, J-lie equal  of which it is said cannot be found along  Slocan lake. Mr. Rammelmeyer has ac-'  cepted a position as manager of the  =Fairview=Gold=Mining-&=Milling=Gom���  pany, which is developing a gold prbp-  ertyin the Okanagan district. The best  wishes of a host of friends will follow  him in his new undertaking:.  The shareholders of the Similkameen  Valley Coal Syndicate have ratified the  sale of 3000 acres of the syndicate's coal  lands to a Toronto company represented  by .1. W. St. John, the well-known barrister and representative for West York  in the Ontario legislature. By the terms  of the.deal the-local syndicate will receive $9000 in cash and one-twentieth  of the stock in the company organized  for the development of the property,  this stock to be fully paid-up and nonassessable. The intention of the purchasers is to organize a company with a  capital of $500^000 in two million share:;  of 25 cents each. At the meeting at  which the sale was confirmed there were  present captain Duncan, H. H. Pitts of  Sandon,-H. J. Robie, G. M. Phillips, W.  J. Beaven, S. M. Brydges and P. E. Wilson. Of the cash payment $2500 is to  be paid in 30 days and the remainder in  90 days. This will put the local syndicate on velvet, as it will retain two-  thirds of its holdings with all obligations met,: a neat turn-over on its original investment, and a good slice of stock  in the company formed for the development of the coal lands parted with.  W. B. Pool, manager of the Nettie L.  and other mines in the Lardeau, passed  through Nelson yesterday on his way  to Spokane. He says the Lardeau is at  present the busiest mining camp in the  province and he predicts that the work  being done in it this season will bring  it to the front. Special attention is  being given at present to the gold ledges,  as owing to the lack of transportation  facilities milling properties are in much  better demand. He says the London &  British Columbia Goldfields is but one  of a dozen companies that are operating  in the district at the present time and  so far there has not been a mining failure worthy of note, while in many instances the prospects have yielded a  profit from the grass roots. In speaking  of the Nettie L. Mr. Pool said that a  force of 20 men were employed in development, getting the property opened  up for stoping in the winter when it was  expected that 2000 tons of ore would be  shipped, which would return $150 to the  ton. There is no truth in the reports  of a deal on the Nettie L. Some time ago  an English syndicate quietly secured a  controlling interest in the property, but  the holders of the majority interest had  made no change in the management of  tho property, and the remainder of the  stock was not for sale unless a price  very much in advance of that secured  in the first instance was offered. For  much of the stock secured by the English syndicate a iirice equivalent to  $G00,000 for- the property was paid, but  a considerable advance on this would  have to be given'in'order to secure the  rest of it. -  A move in what promises to be a big  mining suit will be made" at, Vancouver  on Tuesday, when the Star Mining &  Milling Company as the owners of the  Heber Fractional and Rabbit Paw mineral claims will apply to the courts for  an injunction restraining the Slocan  Star Mining Company from mining certain-ore which, it is claimed, belongs  .to the plaintiff company. It is one of  the cases over the apex of the vein. The  property of the two companies was located under the old law which gave  the owners the right to follow the dip  and angles of the vein, and it will be  for the courts to decide whether, the  apex of the vein in question is on .the  ground of the plaintiff or the defendant  company. The move for the injunction  is but the first in what may prove to  be a long legal battle, as the plaintiff  company is seeking for a decree of tho  court to the effect that the Slocan Star  Company is wrongfully taking ore from  the plaintiff's property, for an accounting of the ore taken from the vein by  the defondant'eompany, for $500,000, for  leave to inspect the workings of the  Slocan Star mine, for the appointment  of a receiver for the Slocan Star, for  damages, and for such other relief as  the court might determine.

THE FEDERATION OF LABOR  "May Be Involved in Steel Strike.  PITTSBURG', August S.���Events are  moving quietly in the steel strike now  and unless there is some' unlooked for  intervention the contendinsr sides will  soon face one another in the full measure of thoir strength.  President Shaffer of the Amalgamated  Association devoted today to a conference with president ' Gompers of the  American Federation of Labor, who  came here for a personal study of the  situation before committing himself or_  his immense organization in any manner. The conference reached.no conclusion and unless "there is an alteration  of plans, will be resumed at 10 o'clock  tomorrow morning..  President Gompers declined to shite  the result of their deliberations and  would say nothing, other than that he  had come here to look over the situation  and consult with president Shaffer.  President Shaffer also declined to talk  about the conference.  SAN FRANCISCO, August 8.���Although the Municipal League has not  abandoned its attempt to have the labor  troubles in this city 'settled by a compromise, both sides are preparing for a  protracted struggle. -The tie-up of shipping is becoming serious. There are  at least 90 coasters and 20 deep-water,  vessels at anchor in-the bay. Some;of  these cannot be unloaded and others  cannot be loaded under existing conditions.       ��� .      .   - '���  Services at Freidrichoff.  CRONBERG, August 8.���The remains  of the dowager empress Frederick- were  placed Jn^acoflin^early^this, morning.  The funeral service held at Freidrichoff late today was simple but highly  impressive. It was performed at the  request of the late dowager empress  by the bishop of Ripon, her own chaplain, assisted.by the Rev. Thomas Teign-  mouth Short, canon of Worcester. The  coffin stood in the death chamber covered with a long black pall and strewn  with white roses. At the foot, with  bowed iicad and slightly in advance of  the other mourners, stood emperor William in the uniform of the Black Hussars, the regiment of the late dowager  empress. Just behind him were all the  other members of the royal family except Henry of Prussia. The service was  conducted without music. It consisted  of a portion of tho burial service of the  Church of England, the 90th Psalm, a  reading from the first epistle of the  Corinthians and the benediction. hTc  congregation rendered the responses.  Immediately after its conclusion emperor William and the empress drove  back to Homberg.  Count von Waldersee will arrive here  Saturday to report personally to the  emperor and it is expected that he will  attend the service on Sunday.  PRINCETON, August 8.���[Special to  The Tribune.]-���Information has been received here from the coast that instructions have been issued to superintendent  of roads Arthur Stevenson for the immediate construction of the -Summit City  camp and Roche River camp trails.  At the, last session $500 was placed in  the appropriations for each of these  trails, and as they will connect two of  the most important camps of the dic-  trict with Princeton considerable satisfaction is felt locally. The proposed  Copper Mountain wagon road to tap the  ore deposits 12 miles south of here will  be started some time early in the fall.  At Tulamecn City, the new government  townsite on Otter Flat, $500 is to be  expended in clearini*. the streets.  The past week has witnessed Quite an  influx of mining men, who are investigating the  resources  of the numerous  camps of the district.   From Vancouver  are T. J. Vaughan-Rhys, M. E. and W.  A. Campbell.   Mr. Rhys represents mining syndicates in London and Paris. Mr.  Campbell is manager of the Lost Horse  Copper Company,  owning interests  on  Copper mountain.    The two will put in  several days  examining both  Kennedy  and Copper mountain.   James D. Sword,  M. E., of Rossland and L. L. Patrick, M.  E.  of Molson,  Washington,  h'ave  been  in   the- district   two   weeks,   taking   in  Pearson's, Hedley, Stirling Creek, Copper  and  Kennedy   camps.    It  is  most  probable that Mr. Sword, who represents  a Montreal company," will acquire property    on    Copper    mountain.    Messrs.  Burns   and' Wilso'n,   two   mining   men  from Nelson, are investigating Boulder  creek, along with A. Gallinger, a California operator.   Dennis Murphy, M. L. A.,  will accompany hon. Richard McBride,  minister .of  mines,  on  a  tour  of   the  camps,   leaving. Ashcroft   on   the .10th  instant.   Smith Curtis, M. L. A., o'f Itossland' has  been  spending several' days  here and has left for Summit City camp.  While here he let a contract to James  Hislop, P. L. S., for the survey of his  .proposed   townsite   at   the   mouth    of  Whipsaw   .creek   on   the   Similkameen  river.    It will be known as Copperfield.  ' Work has -started  on  the provincial  government's survey of the Hope mountain with a.view to determining its feasibility as a railway route.   Ex-governor  Edgar Dewdney is in charge of the survey and is being assisted by engineers  Parry and Hannington, both well-known  in connection with the locating of the  Canadian   Pacific  railway  through  the  province.    The survey wj.ll  cover- that  portion of the proposed Coast-Kootenay  route between Hope station on the main  line of the .Canadian Pacific railway and  Princeton.    Operations will start from  the summit of the Hope range at the  source of the Coquehella river, one party  following this river down the western  slope..  The other party will run lines  down two known routes, following the  Tulameen river going easterly.    It has  tiired him and handed him over to the  police.  The police station now being repaired  temporarily is falling to pieces so badly  that it will take a couple of thousand  dollars to put it together again.  Excursion Train Wrecked.  PITTSBURG, August S.���Two sections  of an Atlantic City excursion train collided near Confluence. Pa., 84 miles east  of Pittsburg, about 11 o'clock this morning. A number : of passengers are reported injured, several seriously.  A Connellsville, Pa., dispatch says  there were three big sections of the express. As the third-section neared Confluence, on the Baltimore & Ohio railway, the engineer suddenly saw looming  up before him on the same track the rear  end of the second section. It was then  too-late to avoid the disaster, and the  engineer and fireman of the third section jumped. The third section crashed  into the Pullman'car of the rear of the  second section, telescoping it. The people in the car were mingled with the  debris and many were seriously hurt,  the total list numbering about 10. Messages were. immediately sent to Connellsville , and a. special train of three  passenger coaches was made up and hur-.  ried to the scene. On board "were three  physicians. The injured were brought  to Connellsville. All, it is thought, will  recover.  TELEGRAMS IN BRIEF FORM  FROM    VARIOUS    QUARTERS   OF  THE  GLOBE.  The Berlin Suspect.  BERLIN, August 8.���Dresdener bank  officials have informed the representative of the Associated Press that the  checks presented by the man representing himself to be K C. Bolles of  San Francisco, but who registered at  the Kaiserhof as Bolles of Boston and  who was arrested yesterday, amounted  to $300,000. Bolles claims that he acquired them in a regular manner at  Boston. The checks which were presented at a branch of the Dresdener  bank have been identified as part of the  booty secured at the robbery of the  American Express Company's Paris office. . Bolles has1 not yet applied for help  at the American embassy. The Kaiser-  ho'f people say that he acted in a suspicious manner and that he had ordered  his bill and his baggage' made ready,  evidently planning to leave the town  immediately after cashing the checks.  The-criminal police-have seized the baggage of the prisoner.  Interesting Occurrences of Yesterday  Condensed and Printed in a  General Way.

Severe Wind and Rain Storms.  SYRACUSE, August S.���A heavy rain  and wind storm that passed over sections of Cortland county last night did  heavy damage to crops, particularly to  corn. In many places whole fields were  leveled to the ground, _.ue damage will  amount to thousands of dollars.  PORTSMOUTH, August 8.���The most  disastrous wind storm since the summer  of 1S98, when a pavilion at Hampton  beach was demolished and several persons were killed, passed over here this  afternoon, causing the death of two persons at Seavy island and injuring half a  dozen others. The greatest force of the  wind was exerted on Seavy island, where  the big granite shed of contractor John  Pierce of New York, who is constructing the new dry dock at the navy yard,  was converted into a mass of debris.  The shed consisted simply of a large  roof supported by timbers with no sides  to it, and under this several persons had  gathered seeking protection. None of  the injured persons are considered in a  serious condition.  News Notes From Grand Forks.  GRAND FORKS, August 8.���[Special  to The Tribune.]'���Customs receipts at  this port during July amounted to $7000.  A new strike is reported from the  Pathfinder, north fork of Kettle river.  While prospecting the surface a few  days ago a rich body of ore was uncovered about two hundred feet from the  old workings. The Pathfinder is now on  a shipping basis, being in a position  without the addition of new equipment  to make regular shipments of 50 tons  daily. There is, however, little likelihood bf tlie property becoming a heavy  shipper until a railway is extended up  the north fork.  A. C. Flumervelt, assistant general  manager of the Granby smelter, has returned to the city after a trip to Boston  and Montreal. He met his family, whicli  had been traveling abroad, and then proceeded to his home in Victoria.  Large quantities of supplies, which arrive by rail, are being shipped daily to  points along the line of the Grand Forks  & Republic railway. Three hundred men  are employed on the construction work.  SAN FRANCISCO. August S��� The police now have in custody a man'known  as "Buck" Taylor, who is suspected of  complicity in the robbery of the Selby  Smelter Works. ' He was employed in  the works" until about six weeks ago,  when he quit, saying that he was ill.  He lived in a cabin half a mile from  the smelter and it is said had been  missing frcm Sunday night until he was  taken into custody yesterday.   It is also  Vancouver Notes.  VANCOUVER, August 8.���[Special to  The Tribune.]���The run of salmon averages five to six hundred to the boat.  Trap fish from Puget Sound are being  obtained in larger numbers than are  wanted at one cent apiece.  The barge at Lytton used by the Co-  beldick Mining Company broke its cable  Tuesday night and started down Fraser  river at a terrific rate. Five men wore  on board. They went through tlie canyon and traveled 05 miles in less than  three hours. The news was telegraphed  ahead and people were out all the way  down the river to see the big barge pass.  A sneak thief named Risman snatched  a lady's purse this morning on the Imperial bank steps. Manager Jukes saw  the man, chased him three blocks, cap-  reported that men now in the employ  of the smelter company are under suspicion and with the facts they have in  hand the police appear to be .confident  of making further arrests within the  next few hours. The Selby Smelting  Company has increased the reward offered from $5000 to $25,000.  SAN FRANCISCO, August 8���Captain  Seymour of the local detective force has  disclosed the identity of the man whom  the police have in custody on suspicion  of being implicated ia the robbery of  $2S3,000 worth of gold bullion from the  Selby smelter works at Vallcjo. The  suspect is' John Winters, 37 years old,  a former employe of the smelting company. Captain Seymour's outline of the  evidence on which Winters is being held  says: "The cover of the tunnel excavated by tho thieves was constructed  of laths upon which some clothes were  fastened with tacks of a peculiar pattern, and tacks similar to these were  found today in. Winters' cabin. Portions of laths similar to those composing the framework of the. cabin have  also been found. A pistol owned" by  Winters and found in his cabin is covered with mud which corresponds with  the earth taken from the tunnel. In  the tunnel were found several tubes of  peculiar chalk, which had evidently been  used to smother the grinding sound  made by the drill by which the floor  plate of the vault had been bored and  pieces of chalk like them were discovered in Winters' residence." Winters,  however, stoutly maintains that he  knows nothing whatever of the robbery.  Big Fire at Sydney.  VICTORIA, August 8.���News was received by steamer Miowera of the destruction.by fire of the department stores  of Anthony Hordcr & Sons in Sydney,  Australia. These monster department  stores, which are among the largest in  the world, employing nearly 1500 hands  and serving an average of-30,000 customers daily, were wiped out by fire on  July 13th and in the conflagration four  of the employes were burned to death  and one lost his life in a tragic manner  by jumping from tlie roof of the building while firemen were endeavoring to  raise a ladder to save him.

The local banks forwarded the  checks to Chicago for collection and they  have been returned with the information  that the Portland Cement Company has no  existence. Walker disposed of quite a let  of his bogus paper here.  Waldersee's Ecturn  HAMBURG, August S.���Tho steamer  Ge'ra, which brought count von Waldersee, arrived today. The field marshal  landed immediately amid cheers from  the crews assembled. General von "Wit-  ticli; representing emperor William, welcomed him. After inspection of the guard  of honor the field marshal, accompanied  by general von Witticli and escorted by  a squadron of Uhlans, proceeded to the  town hall. He was warmly applauded  as he passed the thronged and decorated streets. At tlie town hall the  field marshal was received by the senate, which body subsequently gave a  luncheon in his honor.  General von Wittich read to von Waldersee a cabinet order in which the emperor thanked him for his Chinese services and bestowed upon him the order  of Pout* Le Moyte, with oak leaves, and  directed that the Ninth regiment of field  artillery hereafter bear the name of  von Waldersee.  At the town hall, replying to an address of the burgomaster, von Waldersee- gave credit for the German success  in China to the officers and men of the  expeditionary forces. He said he hoped  for the speedy advent of peace in order  that German trade and enterprise might  profit by the result of the year's operations, which had greatly increased German prestige in the far east.  Peter Jackson Dead.  VICTORIA, August 8.���Peter Jackson  died at Roma, a sanitarium near Brisbane, Australia, where he was buried  early in July. Before leaving here two  years ago for Australia Jackson had an  attack of pneumonia.  Ealloon   Collapses   and   the    Dai ing  .   Frenchman Hung Suspended in  Mid-Air Half an Eour.  PARIS, August S.���M. Santos-Dumont,  the aeronaut, this morning attempted to  circle the Eiffel tower.   Santos-Dumont  started from the Pare de St. Cloud at  6:10 a. m., amid hearty cheers.   His initial movements were promising, the balloon turning around Eiffel tower 9 minutes and 34 seconds after starting and  reaching for St. Cloud. ' Just over the  avenue Henri Marcon, however, a strong  gust of wind struck the balloon, which  veered violently to one side, almost simultaneously bounding backwards a dis- .  tance of 50 yards.    The hydrogen gas  was forced-from the front to the back  part  of  the   balloon,   creating  a  sudden .expansion  whicli caused  the  ma- -  chine to dip. tier screw touched the steel  cords and  broke them.    IvL Santos-Dumont   immediately   stopped  the   motor  and the balloon began to descend.   Unfortunately  the  cover  of the  aerostat  struck the corner of a six-story building.   A report like the shot of a cannon  followed.     The   balloo.r   collapsed   and  fell rapidly.    Luckily the frame caught  on the coping of the building and the  balloon remained suspended, otherwise  Santos-Dumont would have been killed. ,  As it was tho aeronaut hung in a most  dangerous position in mid-air for half,  an hour, until by a great effort he .sue- '  cecded   in   catching the bar of a window,  to. which  he  clung until  rescued .  with *ome difficulty by the use of ropes.  He escaped without a scratch and superintended the removal  of the machine.  The explosion ot the balloon attracted  enormous crowds and the reception of  M.   Santos-Dumont   upon   reaching  the  street was most enthusiastic, many ladies  clinging  to  his  neck and  kissing  him repeatedly.   The balloonist said he  is quite ready to commence operations. ,  CM. Deutsch, who offered the prize o'f  100.000  francs for the rounding of the  Eiffel tower and the return to the start- -  ing point within a given time, was so   "  affected by the danger that Santos-Du- .  mont had passed^ through that he told  him that he would rather present him  with  the  prize  at  once  than  see   him  kill  himself with his experiments,  but   .  the balloonist replied that he had rounded Eiffel tower in such a short period  of time  that  he  considered  the result  too satisfactory to permit the relinquishment of his attempts in the future.  PARIS, August S��� M. Santos-Dumont  gave the following-account of his trip:  "This time it was not the fault of the  motor, which worked admirably. It'was  the balloon which caused the accident.  I rounded the Eiffel tower with admira- ;  ble speed, as I had a favorable wind,  and was already returning over the Bois ���  de~Boulogne when the wind freshened  suddenly and struck me sideways. Like  a ship in a storm the balloon pitched  and rolled, now and then recovering  its   normal   position.   Another   sudden  veering -ot- the wind  caused  the  froni   of the balloon to pitch downwards and  the ropes connecting it with the frame  caught in the propeller, wliich struck the  wires. They broke. I saw the danger  and my only thought was to descend  as quickly as possible. This I was doing successfully, but I .was driven by a  contrary wind in the direction of the  Eiffel tower. Again the breeze veered  and threw mc against a building. The  balloon burst like a toy gas balloon  and the fragments fell, completely covering me. ' The rest you know. I am  unhuil. Not a scratch. I will soon  recommence. The motor is uninjured.  I have worked it for 10 minutes. I will  now send it to St. Cloud and set to  work repairing tho balloon. It is simply a matter of sewing the pieces together. The cause of the accident was  tliat the balloon was insufficiently filled.  I knew tliis. Tho ventilator also worked  badly."  M. Deutsch, who was present at the  start, shed tears when he saw tlie balloon falling. In an interview, after  bighly praising the courage and skill  of M. Santos-Dumont, he said: "I am  afraid the experiments will not be con-,  tinued, as his balloon will always be at  the mercy of the wind, which is not  tho kind of air ship wo have dreamed  of."  The aeronaut atributes his escape to  a medal of St. Bernard presented to him  by the countess D'Eua tho other day  on the occasion of one of his ascents.  The medal he wears atached to a bracelet on his wrist. When M. Santos-Dumont referred to this belief he kissed  the medal.  t^l  Death Setts, ce Approved.  . WASHINGTON,  Au^ist   8.���For   the ���  first   time   since   the   outbreak   of   the  Spanish war. president McKinley has ap- .  proved the death sentence in the case of  an  enlisted  man.

The commissioner of lands  and works is a Liberal, and he does not  feel at home among such dyed-in-the-  wool Tories as Eberts and McBride, The  provincial secretary and minister of education is simply worked to death. When  the premier returns he should give the  pack a good shuffle and make a new  deal. With Price Ellison as commissioner of lands and works and Robert F.  Green as minister of mines and captain  R. G. Tatlow as finance minister, the  premier would have at least three ministers who could be trusted to do their  duty to both the people and himself, and  do it intelligently and expeditiously and  without friction or scandal.  clearance sales of a few  special lines of goods.

The one class are sanguine that in this fight Labor Unions  will suffer so signal a defeat that they  will no longer be a factor in industrial  enterprises.   The other class know it is  only by standing together that they can  hope to get a fair share of the wealth  they create.    They know this by experience, and they know that if defeated  now,  the  battle  will  only  have  to   be  -.-fought and   won  at  some   other  time.  Labor sees gigantic fortunes made in a  few days by a few men who manage to  ^combine ; competitive   industrial   enterprises into non-competitive trusts; and  they-realize that ��� if ��� such combinations  can;he successfully carried on that there  will'.be no competition in anything except labor.    Those who have labor to  sell will be forced to accept the price  offered by these trusts, and there being no competition except among those  "who have, that commodity to sell, the  price will be regulated by the necessities  of the seller.   The seller if hungry and  in want will accept the price offered,  and in time the standard of wages will  be so low that the worker will be little  better than a slave.   This will not only-  he; the status of the unskilled, but the  status of the skilled worker as well.   If  there is  no  competition between  employers, there can be no bidding for the  services of the man who has become expert in his calling.   The skilled and the  .unskilled will be in the''same-boat.'. It  is the aim of the Trusts to keep profits  from going below a certain level.   The  aim  of the Unions  is  to  keep wages  from going below a certain level.   If the  one is justified in.combining, surely the  other is equally- justified, and the more  so .when many are often wholly dependent on the earnings of one man.  The meeting of the Le Roi company  that was to have taken place in London  on the 7th was postponed to the 15th  instant. This is looked on as significant by the opponents of Bernard McDonald, the manager of the company!s  ���properties at Rossland and Northport.  These people say the directors of the  Le Roi must be considering the charges  that have been filed against McDonald,  and they hope that when they are carefully considered his tenure of authority  will be brief. There.is the bitterest kind  of a fight on between McDonald and ex-  governor Macintosh. The latter engineered the deal that created the B. A. C.,  the company that placed the several Le  Roi companies on the market. While  the ex-governor may not have had full  charge of these several companies at  any one time, yet he had strong friends  in control. These friends were all cast  adrift when Bernard McDonald assumed  the management, and they are now aiding Macintosh to secure the removal of  McDonald, it is a pretty fight to those  who are on the inside, and its result  means'much to Rossland. If Macintosh  and his friends succeed in ousting.McDonald, the strike will be declared off  within twenty-four hours, and Rossland  will, soon regain its usual prosperity.  If McDonald wins, it will be many a day  " before there is either peace or prosperity  at Rossland, for he has determined to  smash the Miners' Union at that place,,  and.if he succeeds other mine managers  will be willing to try it in other places.  It is to be hoped that Macintosh will  succeed in knocking McDonald out, for  the province can stand men like Macintosh and can get along very well without men like McDonald.  Premier Dunsmuir has gone north on  a pleasure trip and minister of finance  Turner is packing-tip for his farewell  trip to the Old Country. The remaining  members of the government are at sea  ds to what to do. The attorney-general's  health is bad and he is unable to give  public business the attention he would  were he in good health.   The minister of  The Evening World, without a dollar  behind it, is making a much better fight  for the Miners' Union of Rossland than  the Miner, with all the Le Roi company's  credit backing it, is making for the  mine managers. It is simply a case of  brains pitted against an overdrawn bank  account.    ^    . ;    -  7, The Prophet Kipling.  Genius has given Rudyard Kipling a  reputation which will take care of itself,  and Kipling can disregard all the laws  of meter in his attempts to talk to the  British people like an Old Testament  prophet. John Bull will give ear to  Rudyard Kipling. Good truth may be  put in bad verse. Why write verse at  all? Why not put the good truth in  good prose? Truth that dances into  the understanding in a jingle is more  powerful than the truth that drags its  slow length along through majestic columns of the finest English prose. Verse  is the medium by which Rudyard-Kipling can best reach the mind of John  Bull. If Kipling has a mission to pillory  the defects of the English military system, let him keep on writing without regard to the technical imperfections of  his stanzas. Kipling is not a soldier  Therefore he is unfit to be the Martin  Luther of a military reformation. That  is the argument of the military priesthood. Kipling is not a soldier. Neithei  was DeWet two years ago. DeWet would  have had to serve 15 years before he  would have been considered fit to act  as troop sergeant in a British cavalry  regiment. DeWet is capable of actions  which teach soldiers the'rudiments of  their business.1 DeWet has brains. So  has Kipling. And the. man who has  brains and eyes and commands the attention of John Bull can supply advice  which is worth handling in verse: which  may jar on the fine and long ears of the  London Advertiser.���Toronto Telegram  ************ * * *b * * *  * Classified    advertisements   in-   -_���  * serted for ONE-HALF CENT A   ���_-  * word each insertion.

Finance minister Turner has taken a  turn at that Memorial of ".the Miners'  Association of British Columbia, and has  shown that there is little foundation for  the claim that the mining industry is  oppressively taxed as compared with  other businesses and occupations. Minor  grievances are admitted. It is a matter  of impossibility to devise a system of  taxation that will be perfectly equitable. Compared with other countries, the  capitalists interested in British Columbia mines, have nothing to complain of  and much to be thankful, for. It is on  account of abuses from within, and not  because of inordinate burdens, from  Without, that the industry is suffering;  for it is not in as healthy a state as it  ought to be in.���Victoria.Times.

Strange Story of Lillian E Allen,  An interesting story was published in  the New York Tribune recently. It relates that the '-husband" o�� Mrs. Lillian  B. Allen, to whom Pierre Lorillard bequeathed Rancocas stock farm, was not  a man but a woman. It explains the  purposes of such a "marriage," one being to avoid an open scandal, and says  the "bridegroom" was the wife of one  of Mr. Lorillard's servants.  So, when the "bridegroom" put on her  frocks after the wedding "Mr. Allen"  disappeared.  The story quotes in support of its  own truth the peculiarity of Mr. Lorillard's description of Mrs. Allen in his  will. She is there described as "Lily A.  Barnes," also known "and sometimes  known"  as  Mrs.  Lily B.  Allen.  But read the story:  "All the mystery surrounding the  identity of the man who became Lhe  husband of "Mrs." Allen was dispelled  yesterday by the discovery that "he"  was a woman. The person who went  through a marriage ceremony with Miss  Barnes was the wife of one of Mr. Lorillard's employes. After the ceremony,  she simply took off her man's attire and  resumed her gown, which fact explains  why no one has been able to discover  who "Mr." Allen was, or what became  of him. The conflicting stories that Mr.  Allen was an Englishman, who 'received  $10,000 to become the husband of Mi&s"  Barnes and then conveniently disappeared; that he had gone west immediately after tho ceremony and had conveniently died; that he had gone to Europe,' Africa and almost all other countries under the sun, are thus explained.  Some reason had to be given for "his"  disappearance,' but the accounts of various ' people who had an object in explaining his absence did not always  agree. This explanation of 'Mr.' Allen's  identity also explains the peculiar wording of the will of Mr. Lorillard in the  clauses in which he bequeathed property  to 'Mrs.' Allen. She is described as  Lily A . Barnes, 'also known,' and 'sometimes known' as Mrs. Lily B. Allen. It  ' is obvious that there was no such person as.'Mrs. Lily B. Allen/ or 'Mrs. Lillian Barnes Allen' in a legal sense, and a  bequest to her would have been void,  or of doubtful validity. So the bequest  .was made to the woman under the only  name which she could legally claim as  her own, and to that name was added,  for purposes of better identification, the  name under which she was generally  known. The story is that a number of  years ago Mr. Lorillard became fascinated with the Barnes woman, and his  attentions were so constant that her  parents seriously objectod to their  daughter being seen so cmuch in - the  company of a married^man. People in  Orange, N. J., remember that there was  considerable talk caused by the aifair.  About the time of this talk it was announced that Miss Barnes was about to  marry a Mr. Louis, or Lewis, Allen. The  prospective bridegroom appears to have  been as much out of sight and as mysterious then as at a later date. People  who heard the report that Miss Barnes  ��� was"about-to-be-married-to-a-Mr���Alien-  never saw the intended bridegroom, although they frequently saw Miss'Barnes.  The 'marriage' took place not long after  the first announcement was made coupling the names of Miss Barnes and 'Mr.'  Allen. How much of the plan to have a  marriage ceremony performed between  herself and a woman was-originated by  Miss Barnes is not known. The fact  seems to bo that she at least fell in witli  the plan. Apparently she was not deceived as to the sex of 'Mr,' Allen, ior  after the ceremony was performed she  went with Mr. Lorillard on a long cm tee  on his yacht. It is believed that Mr.  Barnes did not know anything about this  plan, and that he thought his daughter  was to be and was married to a real 'Mr.'  Allen. It was. of course, to avoid an  open scandal that this plan was conceived and carried out. The people most  interested wished to avoid the talk  wliich an elopement would cause, and  the plan adopted covered up the real  purpose for the time" being. This plan,  too, was much safer than the one which  it has generally been reported was pursued. Many people have wondered why  a man of Mr. Lorillard's ability and  judgment would take such a risk of he-  coming the victim of a blackmailer, as  he would evidently run, in arranging a  marriage between Miss Barnes and a  man in his employ. Any man who  would lend himself to such a scheme  for $10,000, or any other sum, and conveniently disappear, leaving his wife  behind.under the conditions suggested  by these stories, would not be likely  either to be satisfied -with, that sum or  to hesitate in his demands for more.  No doubt these dangers-were all appreciated, and to avoid them the ceremony  with a woman was arranged. This, of  course, would be absolutely void* as a  matter of law, while it prevented 'in-  pleasant talk. Neither the identity nor  the name of the woman who impersonated the putative husband is known,  except that she was the wife of one  of Mr. Lorillard's servants."  Emharassing Mixup.  A story was told me by a man on  the steamer from New York to Naples  of a thing that happened the year before when he had made a previous trip.  Jt is well that American women who J  Robt.

He said that a fellow passenger  remarked to him one day: "That lady  seated next to you at meals has a man  in her cabin. She is Mrs. A. on the list  and a Mr. X. is also on the list as being  in the same cabin. I' guess she's no  good."  - This was a distinct reflection on the  'woman's honor. My acquaintance happened to be seated next to her. She  had treated him very coldly, never bowed to him on deck, always walked alone.  He had no reason to like her, but being  of an investigating turn of mind, he  asked his acquaintance to say nothing  to any one else about the matter and  that he would try to unravel it. He  got the printed passenger list whicli is  distributed as soon as the steamer gets  to sea, and sure enough there was No.  212, Mrs. A. Going down the list (the  list is alphabetic), he saw No. 212, Mr.  X. To the casual observer that looked  as If Mrs. A. were "no good," indeed.  My informant then went to the head  steward and got from his a copy of the  steward's private passenger list for wine  and mineral water orders. He carefully  went over the list. Much to his delight  he found a Mrs. X., no Mr. At dinner  that day he remarked to Mrs. A. that he  had a very amusing cabin associate, an  Italian.  "And I have a charming old lady, Mrs.  X, she sits over there."  The testimony was now entirely and  absolutely in favor of Mrs. A.; but he  was not through with the matter. He  went to the head steward, showed him  the printed and the written list.  "Mcin Gott!" said the German; "vat  a- mistake. It was the quickness of  brinting."  Of course in the hurry and scurry of  getting a big steamer with many passengers off, typographical errors arc  likely to occur. But it would be better  to print more deliberately and not have  such errors happen.���Covington Johnson in San Francisco Argonaut.  0 ,  A Million'Minutes.

Hill,  president of the Great Northern railroad,  ''who has returned from the Northwest,  said today that the wheat, barley, flax,  hay and most of the crops along the  Great Northern and Northern Pacific  roads arc looking extremely well, and  promise to be much ahead of last year.  "To show the growth of our general traffic," said Mr. Kill, "I need only to call  attention to what we have accomplished  in spite of a partial crop failure last year  along the Great Northern and Northern  Pacific. The loss was '10,000,000 bushels of  .grain. In transportation and purchasing  power this meant a'Ioss"of 55,000,000 to the  Great Northern railroad, all of which loss  was made up within $130,000 with increase  in our trafiic and retrenchment of expenses." "How will the Burlington do with so  great a failure in the corn crop?" was  asked Mr. Hill. "That js a question tliat  nobody can .answer definitely at this time,"  replied Mr. Hill, "but I expect that the  Burlington will give a good account of  itself���as good as tho Great Northern and  Northern Pacific have���following the partial failure of the spring wheat crop of last  year, maybe better." .  -Thorpe & Co.'bottle'it.

U Ills gave iiie vendor close upon 100 per  cent upon his investment. The second payment upon tho London & li. C.

Estate Will Fay Ten Cents  The litigation over'what remains of the  =Gf=Mr=Froiik=-;estate���wa-.~s6tt.ed-up-y-S-***'  terday by a consent order before judge  Foi in. There were three parties to the dis-  . ���. ute. Buscombe it Co. were trying to get in  as judgment creditors for a claim of $900;  Heney was pressing for recognition as a  mortgagee for a claim of $900; and A. P.  Hay ligured in the case as assignee for  the creditors. The stock in trade which  comprised the whole estate was sold for  $ii50, so that in the event of either the  judgment creditor, or the mortgagee succeeding there would have been nothing left  for the unsecured crettluors. VV. A. Macdonald represented Buscombe & Company,  and P. E. Wilson the other parties to the  suit in the proceedings before judge Forin.  The order made in the matter was arrived  at by consent, the claim of the assignee  to the estate being allowed and the others  coming in as ordinary creditors. By this  arrangement the estate will pay about 10  cents on tho dollar.  PERSONALS.  C. 1-1. Green of Spokane is at tho l-Jurne  * *   *  AV. N.

Likely to Be Settled.  An unconfirmed rumor was In circulation  in Nelson yesterday that the differences  between the C. P. R. trackmen and the  management was in a fair way to be sctV  lled. The rumor was that general manager McNicoll, who is ln Vancouver, was  i.iterviewcd by representatives of the several trainmen's organizations, who have  grievances as well as tho truckmen, and  that tho result of the conference would  be an adjustment of all existing difficulties. The trackmen say that, while many.  Italians arc employed "as sectionmen on  the main line of the Pacific division, not  one of the bridgemen who struck have returned to work, and that the company has  not to exceed one-third as many men employed in the bridge gangs as were employed before the strike.  ;_       Will Move to Vancouver.  H. J. Evans, doing business as H. J.  v Evans & Co., has decided to close out at  Nelson and move to Vancouver. Mr. Evans  began business in Nelson about live years  ago as a. wholesale liquor and commission  merchant. He did a large business, but  has come to the consluslon that he can  engage in a more congenial and profitable  business at the Coast, and, consequently,  ivi.!' dispose of tlie stock carried here cither  In tlio rogular way or in bulk as a business  venture. Mr. Evans believes that there aro  too many houses in the trade for the business that can be secured for Nelson, and  Is therefore unwilling to remain in the  field and do business below what is considered a safe margin of profit.  Does Not Know the Difference.  ���j he Revelstoke Herald does not know the  difference between crude ore and concentrates, and is continually harping on "the  ��li5 ore of the Coeur d'AIoncs." The Coeur  d'jVlone ore averages about $10 a ton, and  Utile ore mined In that camp is shipped  crinle; it is first concentrated, then shipped,  i'iirl tire concentrates may average $(i5 a  ton. The trouble with the Herald is it is pub-.  ii:hcd |or* people who do not want to pay  taxes; but they are wonderfully strong on  wauling to spend money that can only be  j.Used by taxation.

According to the Drill, there is as much  fiietion between the aldermen of Slocan  aim the mayor as there is between the  aluermcn of Sandon and the mayor of that  c'ly, arrd the cause of the friction is the  same in both places, that is, lack of money  and scramble for olllce. At Slocan the council elected a man city clerk who is not  liked by the mayor, who had his own man  ior tho job. At Sandon the row is also over  the city clerkship. The truth is, neither  place should be an incorporated city; both  are *. 'Mages and should be treated'as such.  There aro not enough offices to go round,  and if there were, there is not enough  money in sight to pay the salaries demanded. .  As Great as Last Year  It is claimed that busine*,!- is dull; that  times are bad. While no general canvas  has been made, casual inquiry goes to show  that the volume of business done at Nelson is as great as at this time last year.  =ka=L=w.eiit=out=beai*^hunting-oiie=day-ana'  had tiie misfortune to lose my way. After  a unie I found my way again, and just at  the samo moment I found the bear. It was  liien that I no'liced that j-. had no bullet  i" ��� ray gun. The horror of this discovery  caused u,'cold perspiration to break out all  over my forehead; Owing* to the intense  cold which prevails in those parts, this immediately froze into solid balls of ice.  Grasping- a.handful of these I thrust them  J'-'to'the muzzle of my gun and fired. Ov.-ing  to trie intense heat of tho explosion the ice  at once melted, and issuod from the muzzle  ��:' ilii*- _run in the form of a long streak of  ������>.*itcr. Owing to the intense cold this, at  '���.���ice froze into a .solid spike of ice, tho  point of: which entered the head of the  bear. Owing to tho intense heat inside  rile head of the bear, this at once molted,  anu the bear died���ot water on the brain."  A Chance for Nelson,  N er ion people who like base ball as a  game will remember Kelly of the Spokane  team who played here last summer. An effort was made to secure Kelly foi* Nelson,  but Spokane evidently made a more attractive offer and he was installed as manager  of the Spokane team. This year Spokane  became a member of the Northwest  League, and Kelly has been made play sec-  ���nci fiddle, and now has been released altogether. The Spokane Chronicle says:  "Kelly has been generally acknowledged  a strong sticker, and that fact has placed  him in high estimation among the fans.  l!is fielding has not been gilt edged, and lie  A Hindoo Clock.  There is a clock now in the possession of  king Edward V1T. at Marlborough House  to which a somewhat curious story is attached. It was presented to the then prince  of Wales on the occasion of his visit to  India, and was said to have been made by  a priest of the greatest sanctity. It was so  constructed to show the hours in Sanscrit  figures, the change of the moon, and other  things. After it had been brought to London tho clock remained quiescent for some  years, and eventually the prince desired  that it should bo put in working order.  When it was taken to pieces it was found  on the interior of the case which covered  the mainspring the name of a Clerkenwell  firm.  A True Tale  They had been  telling yarns about wild  beasts,    and    the   unassuming   sportsman  pulled himself together and moderately re-  lu'ed his bear story. "When I was In Alas-  Says Lead Will Go Lower.  "I  look   for  a  sttill   further   Tall   in   the  price both for lead and copper on lhe London   market,"   said   Henry  Urntnober,   tlio.  famous San Francisco mining man, who is  at  the Hotel  Spokane.   "The  world's  production of lead is now considerably in excess of the demand. There is both an overproduction  and  an  under consumption  of  these  metals.   The  Chinese  troubles  have  reduced  the  market-for lead in Asia, amnio ��� Australian   product   is   being   thrown  on the Kuropcan market. The copper situation  is  in  somewhat  siriiilar  shape.'  Tho  mines   arc  producing  more   of   the  metal  than the market can consume. Even New  York is beginning to realize this, although,  of  course,   the  big  copper  companies  ������ire  making   gigantic   efforts   to   hold   up   tho  price at the present nominal figures. Nevertheless, I understand that sales are boing  freely  made   off  tho  exchanges  at  prices  below the nominal figures.'' Mr. Bratnober  recently made a trip to Prince of Wales  island  to  look after sonic copper propositions   there.   "The   surface   showing  indicates that somo valuable deposits of copper may be found on the island," said lie,  in discussing the situation there.���Spokesman-Review.  ���Hi-  91  .#.  ...  91  *����  91  (n  .m  (TV  ft  ,tf&'��32'&*15'&*'*''*W*.��&*.*.*.&*.**.��-f;.
