C, MONDAY, AUGUST 12, 1901  FIVE CENTS  A BLOODTHIRSTY HEATHEN  INSTRUMENTAL IN HAVING FOUE  CHINESE KILLED.  Manager's Report of Operations at the  Noble Five���News Notes From  Various Provincial Points.  VANCOUVER, August 11.���[Special to  The Tribune.]���A Chinese gambler  named Ah Mooey was last night committed for trial for the murder of four  otheroChinamen, "because he had paid,  according to good evidence, for the committing of the crime. They were the  four Chinamen killed last month in a  Chinese boarding house at Ladner's  Landing, near Vancouver. They were  hacked to death with an ax in the hands  of Quong, another ignorant Chinaman,  who was: simply a tool of Mooey. A  third Chinaman came to the police with  the story yesterday, saying that he had  heard. Mocey and Quong discussing the  , plan of the murder while they laid in  : their beds. Mooey offered-Quong $100  for killing one of the men and finally  they agreed that Quong should get the  full $200 if he would dispatch'" two or  :more of them into the particular department of liell to which the gambler's  long belonged.: .Quong killed them with  a double-butted ax, cutting their heads  and chests open before they could make  the alarm. During all this time Mooey  ���stood with one foot on the stairs and  when the fourth man had fallen out of  his bunk and tried to i usii to the door,,  though fatally injured, Mooey had call-  <ed out that there was trouble outside  and they had better be going! They all  rushed out of the building, Mooey to  steal away in the darkness arid; Quong  to be arrested because of the many  Wood stains on his hands arid, clothes.  Quong confessed to committing the  crime, but said in the examination yesterday that he had done it because it  was a money-making job, and according to his system of ethics he himself  had no moral responsibility. After he  had finished the job Mooey-had said,  "That is all risrht." Mooey, as . .well'as'-  Quong, has bean committed for trial and  is being held on the charge of murder.  Fineltins Contract Closed.;:;  GREENWOOD, August 10��� [Speciajl  to The Tribune.]���The "& C. Copper  Company-of this city has just closed a  ��� contract with the B. C. ���"'mine', for the  ���treatment of 200 tons of ore per day.  'The ore, it is said, was formerly treated  '.by the Trail smelter, but the Greenwood  people made them a rate which got the  .business. Paul Johnson, the manager of  the Greenwood smelter, says the company intends to have a new stack .which,  it is said, will be in readiness by the  month of October. He will then be in'a  position to treat SOO tone of ore per  day and says he expects to secure all  the ore in the district that is offering  -for customs treatment. This will give  'Greenwood the largest smelting plant  in the Dominion.  Northport smelter early on Saturday Is  confirmed. The loss will be very heavy.  No one was hurt, although the nonunion mon were greatly frightened.  Revelstoke Jottings.  REVELSTOKE, August 10.���[Special  to The Tribune.]���Jack McTaggart was  brought here from Ferguson, Trout Lake  district, last night, for medical treatment. Ho was working in an open cut  at the Metropolitan mine. After tiring  a hole he failed to get away, and was  struck by rock from the blast and hurled  over a 300-foot bluff. He has a broken  knee and a badly bruised body.  There is a good deal of feeling here  with regar'd to the deficiency of the  water supply. A petition has been circulated asking the council to cancel the  deal with the water works company for  the  purchase  of the  plant.  The striking trackmen here are confident that considerable, developments  will follow the meeting of the delegation  from the five railway brotherhoods with  president Shaughnessy at Montreal.  Bush fires are raging all over Revelstoke district.  MARLBOROUGH'S RECEPTION  THREE    THOUSAND    DELEGATES  WERE PRESENT.

VICTORIA, August 11.���Sergeant Edward George Meades of the regular  army hero shot himself while on duty  early this morning;  cause is unknown.  There was no trouble with union  'longshoremen upon the arrival of the  steamer Umatilla this morning from  SannFrancisco, as.anticipated.

AN INTERVIEW WITH DEPEW  ;CK  Hi"h Grade Slocan Ore  .VICTORIA, August 10.���[Special to  -Tie-Tribune.-]���The-managev=ol!-the=No-  '���Mi* Five Mining Company, of which premier Dunsmuir is president, and ex-premier Joseph, Martin is a director, reports as follows:  "During the month of July the following work has been done: In tunnel  A the cross-cut we are running to,ci*03S-  ,-cut the Last Chance ledge lias been run  a distance of 113 3-4 feet, making a total  to date of 200 feet. In Last Chance tunnel No. 3 we have drifted on the ledge  35 feet, making a total from the Last  ���Chance end line of 151 feet. In.this distance we have encountered throe chutes  of ore, A, B and C. We have not upraised on chutes B and C, but in tlie  drift the maximum width -of ore was  16 inches, 12 inches and 3 feet, respectively. Assays of ore taken from chute  C gave from 174 ounces to 42(1 ounces of  silver per ton, and from 11 to 17 per cent  lead. We shipped during the month to  the Nelson smelter 24 tons of clean ore,  the net returns for which, after paying  freight and treatment charges, were  31928.33, a trifle better than $80 per ton."  Objects to"Being Misquoted"  LONDON; August" 11.���"I am going to  retire from the interviewing business  permanently," said United States senator Ghauncey M,-.'Depew to a representative of thev Associated Press yesterday.  "I have served my full term and have  generally enjoyed it,r but there have  been so many' fictitious and erroneous  reports of my sayings and speeches since,  I arrived in Europe this summer that I  have concluded to give up the job. J  have been seriously misquoted in. American papers concerning the efforts of the  European governments to offset Ameri-  .can inroads into trade and manufactures. My observation , of. this move  ment leads to the conclusion, that.while  the European, governments view.'with  alarm the increasing inroads of American products, it is impossible that'they  should successfully - combine against  themi'.' As* a United Statesi senator I am  precluded- from discussing lord Kitchener's proclamation, which,undoubtedly,  was the most'important feature of English politics this week. It is bound to  create widespread comment, appearing  as it does on the day lord Milner. is returning to South Africa. I presume Mr.  Balfour and Mr. Chamberlain wi'li enlighten us on the subject at Blenheim  today and it would have been a pleasure  to me to hear them and- witness the  demonstration at the duke of Marlborough's charming palace had I not  thought that my presence there might  be misconstrued in the ��� United States.  It is hopeless to expect European, intervention. No matter how much the  people sympathize with the heroic conduct of the Boers, governments are  forced to determine-exactly what effect  intervention is going..to have for the  =Boers=and=where=they=themsel"v*es=stajuU  when England declines their demand."  Non-Union Man's Grievance.  ROSSLAND, August 11.���[Special to  The Tribune.]���Joseph Horn, a Pole,  working at the Northport smelter, a  non-union man, came up oii the afternoon train on Saturday and was, on his  arrival, followed along the streets here  by a crowd of idle men and boys and  jeered at as a scab. No attempt was  made tb do the man any injury. Later  in the day Horn swore out a warrant  against Joseph Colistro, an Italian,  charging him with common .assault. This  case will come up before police magistrate Boultbee tomorrow. T. M. Daly  will prosecute and A. H. MaeNeill will  defend. Horn was about town last evening and all today, but no attempt was  made to molest him in any way. It is  said Daly wired the attorney general for  protection and received instructions to  act.     The   matter   was   aU   over   very  ^"iiiickly and there was no real disturb-  *r��..nt**.e. although the streets are full of  unemployed men. This is the only coifi-  plaint of the kind made since the strike,  commenced, a month ago.   The Miner's  .account this morning was hysterical and  .greatly exaggerated.  The report  of an  explosion   at  the  Maine Explosion Redivivus  NEW ORLEANS, August 11���What is  regarded as an attempt of a Boer sympathizer to blow up a British transport  occurred shortly after midnight Friday,  when there was a terrific explosion at  the .stock, landing, where the steamer  Meachiniah is loading. The Meachinian  is to carry mules to South Africa. The  explosion shook houses and awakened  "people for some distance around: Most  of the crew of the ship were asleep, but  the explosion brought them quickly to  the deck. An examination showed a  large dent on the starboard side of the  ship. Two plates'at the water's edge  had been sprung and considerable water  was let into the ship. Pumps were immediately put to work and when daybreak came it was found that the vessel was in no danger of sinking and  that the damage was not serious. The  crew of the vessel deny that there were  any explosives on board. There seems  little doubt but that the explosion was  from the outside and that some sort of  a bomb or torpedo had been used.  LONDON, August 11. ��� The great  Unionist celebration Saturday was favored with most pleasant weather." The  occasion was the third Unionist victory  in the by-elections. One hundred and  twenty members of parliament were  present, "with some 3000 delegates from  Conservative and Liberal-Unionist associations throughout the country, but  the others .present made a total of about  7000 persons. Mr. Balfour and Mr.  Chamberlain delivered addresses after  luncheon in the open air. The duchess  of Marlborough entertained the guests  in a huge tent. The duke of Marlborough presided. Tlie palace was open for  public inspection during the day. A feature of the entertainment was a'recital  xipon the local organ in the long library.  Both Mr. Balfour and Mr. Chamberlain  .were accorded a warm reception from  the enthusiastic crowd as they paraded  . the grounds, escorted respectively by  the duchess of, Marlborough, who was  dressed in half mourning, and by the  duke of Marlborough. During the course  of his remarks, after luncheon, Mr. Balfour said that the erstwhile alliance between the Conservatives and Liberal-  Unionists was now an indissoluble  union. A large section of the opposition  was avowedly unpatriotic and the country was not so moonstruck as to confide the conduct of public affairs to those  who, so far as they have uttered any  clear note, had uttered it against their  own country.   Mr.-,Bairour proceeded to  ���compare the opposition tactics to tlie  sniping, guerilla warfare in South Africa and said both would end at no distant date. Mr. Chamberlain spoke in a  similar vein.   He said the alliance of the  "parties  had  resulted  in  building up  a  . truly national party.' The Liberal party  were now only the "Rump" party. They  had sunk in the pro-Boer mud so deep'  that not even the Liberal Imperialists  could extricate them. ���" Even the latter  were not free from heresies and until  they were free the .Unionist party did  ���not want their communion.  ""'.'������*'        ""Kitchener's'Reports!   "  V LONDON, August 11.���A dispatch from  lord Kitchener dated from Pretoria yesterday says:    A blockhouse near Brad-  fort, Orange River Colony, was rushed  and captured by the Boers after severe  fighting the night of August 7th. Elliot  has captured 7Cr prisoners and a large  quantity of stock and wagons, which he  is sending in. No details have been received. '  Mail dispatches from, iord Kitchener,  issued yesterday in a parliamentary paper, says it is his constant endeavor to  improve the fortifications along the*  lines of communication, thus releasing  men from active service. The garrisons  off the railways have mostly been with-  .drawn: A spirited . narrative of the  ejectment of general Dewet from Cape  Colony concludes with the statement  -that=the-i*aiders=undoubtcdly=r**eei*;ccl=a=  number of recruits from the Colonial  Dutch, an ample supply of food and  timely information. Lord Kitchener received certain information that Dewet  intended to attack Cape Town, while  general Botha, as soon as he heard that  the concentration in Cape Colony was  effected, was to enter Natal with 500')  picked horsemen and make for Durban.  eight meals a day.

My noon  meal is about tiro same, except that I  sometimes cat a. potato. At night- I sometimes drink" ten. 1 always eat white bread  and butter "and potatoes for supper." In  commenting on the case Dr. Eads says:  "The entire stomach was removed. That  Kruger's present diet agrees with him  there can be no doubt. It is a strong refutation of the old teaching-of physiology  that the stomach digests one kind of food  and the intestines another. The case' is  also a good argument for vegetarians."

Evans, acting upon the  complaint made by the former secretary  of the navy, Chandler, for criticism of  the latter, in admiral Evans' book, "A  Sailor's Log." The letter of reprimand  was sent to the rear admiral yesterday.

Robert Cr is well and Harry  Osborne, both of this place, were so  badly scalded and burned that they will  probably die.  Lives Without a Stomach.  Ci-ilCACiO, August 11���Carl- Kruger, the  man without a stomach is doing better  than many men with stomachs. Mr. Kruger's stomach was taken out in an eighty-  minute surgical operation on April 20th  and since then his health has improved  steadily. Previously he had been starving  with cancer of the stomach. From 9C  pounds he has come to weigh close to 100  pounds, and he is still gaining. For a long  time arter the operation Mr. .Kruger's  board was nothing a week, for makers of  patent food preparations furnished all he  could use. Within four weeks after rhe removal of his stomach he was able to go to  work. He now spends much of his time  working in his garden. Yesterday he  walked, three miles and felt no more exhausted than the ordinary man. In talking of his own case, Mr. Kruger said:  "T feci as well as any man can and better than I have felt for'years. For a long  time before tho operation I could not sleep  without dreaming and waking at frequent  intervals. Now as soon as I lie down 1 fall  asleep and sleep soundly. My food does not  trouble me now. 1 simply eat and that Is  all there is to It: I cannot tell whether 1  have a stomach or not. Tt is just as if the  stomach were there.

The Erin has put oiit one of the lights)  the towing light. It means that she has  dropped the tow. Both yachts anchored  outside the bar at 11:'48 p. m. As the  yachts came to anchor the Erin burned  sir Thomas Lipton's private night signal, a star green and red, which was  immediately answered from the Sandy  Hook marine station. It is thought  probable the,yachts will remain outside  the-bar until o'ayiight.  SANDY HOOK, N. Y.. August 11��� Sir  Thomas Lipton's second challenger for  the America's cup, Shamrock II, in tow  of her consort, the big steam yacht Erin,  arrived off Sandy Hook lightship shortly  after 11 o'clock tonight and anchored  for the. night just inside the lightship  half an hour'-later.:. A newspaper tug  and the tugboat James R. Lawrence,  -with David Barrick, sir Thomas' personal representative in this . country,  aboard, has been cruising off Sandy  Hook for two days awaiting the appearance of the'foreign cup-hunter. When  off the lightship the Erin; turned her  signals, green and red with green star,  and the tugs ran alongside. Greetings  -on^both .sides-_wei*e^heai'-ty.^butJjeyond_  saying that the yacht had encountered  fine weather, neither captain Matthews  of the Erin nor captain Sycamore of the  challenger would give details of tho  voyage. They regarded it as a fine performance, as was evident by captain  Matthews' ejaculation of surprise when  informed that the tugs had been on the  outlook for her for two days. "Give^  her a-chance," he shouted. As a matter of fac't the actual time of.the Shamrock II is less than 14 days, counting  her stop of one day at .St. Michaels,  Azores, a day better than the time of  tlie old Shamrock, which was far and  away better than tliat of any former  challengers.  CRISPI  DIES  AT   NAPLES  And.Italy Mourns a Statesman.  NAPLES, .August 11.���Signor Crispi  died at 7:45 o'clock this evening. He  was surrounded by the members of his  family and several intimate friends. The  news was immediately telegraphed 5*to  king Victor Emmanuel and queen Helen.  The evening papers assert that the body  will be conveyed by steamer to Palermo, where the municipality will arrange  for a great public funeral. It is rumored  that signor Crispi will authorize a prominent Italian to examine his papers and  to publish his memoirs.  ROME, August 11.���In consequence of  the low condition of signor Crispi today, the injection of stimulants and the  administration of oxygen were stopped,  the physicians recognizing that the end  was near. He lay insensible and ho was  virtually dead for hours before the physicians certified that life was extinct.  Some indignation was expressed when  the public learned that the details of  the funeral had been arranged before  death came. It is rumored tliat tlie  affairs pf the deceased are in the greatest confusion and that signora Crispi  will have to depend solely upon tlie  proceeds of tho sales of the memoirs.  The body will be embalmed and will  lie in state for three days in the drawing room at Naples.  SAN FRANCISCO, August 11.���Jack  .'Winters, who was arrested for the Selby  smelting works robbery, has confessed  the crime, and so far $130,000 worth'of  bullion has been recovered from the  bay, where he had sunk it. For three  days the detectives have tried all sorts  of intimidation to make Winters confess, but their threats apparently had  no effect upon him. Finally he asked to  see superintendent Ropp of the works,  Who, he said, was'the only friend he.had,  In. his conversation with' Ropp Winters'.  .manner indicated-.that he knew where  the gold had been hidden. Ropp told  him that they had a strong case against  him and that he would be sent to prison  for 30 years.   He said: '  "You will be, an old mau when you  get out and it will do you no good to  hide the gold. We know it is hidden  in the water near the works and we will  search every inch. You may be sure'  that the gold will be found before you  get out of prison."  Winters finally weakened and told  Ropp that he had taken the gold, and  would take him to the spot where it was  hidden. Tho criminal, in company with  superintendent Ropp and a.force of detectives, left on a tug last night for  Crockett. There they waited all night  for the low tide. Winters pointed out  the place at the end of tho railroad  wharf," behind- tlie coal bunkers, at the  beginning of the Va'llejo ferry slip. At  that point at-low tide the mud is about  four feet deep, covered by a foot of  water. When the tug first reached  Crockett Winters pointed out the spot  in the water where he ��� said he had  thrown the gold. Superintendent Ropp  marked the placo on tho wharf and the  tug steamed away to wait for low tide.  This morning Winters himself got into  the mud- and water up to his neck and  for an hour-and a half groped for the  missing bullion.   Up to 10 o'clock $110,-  000 worth had beer\-recovered. This includes the four bars of fine gold. Win-  tors had put some of the.bars in bags.  He said that one of the bags had broken  and some small .bars .had dropped out.  It is now only a question of careful  search to find the rest of the $280,000.'  Winters claims that he did the job' all  alone. He says that he made 14 trips  from the vault to the wharf from which  he dropped rthe gold. The smelter officials, however, are positive that he received assistance from some one; The  detectives "think that his story that he  did it' all ��� himself is correct. The tug  with' the detectives and the prisoner,  Winters, on board lias returned to the  city. Winters, ���.-'���when he had made up  his mind, to tell ail he knew about the  crime, was exceedingly willing to give  all the information that was necessary  for the recovery of the bullion. He practically assumed charge of the operations  and  led captain Seymour and superin-  -tenrleiitf=Ropp=to=thrffnrockr==He^a"cted"  more like one of the detectives employed  than as a prisoner. As soon as he arrived at the water's edge he called the  superintendent to his side and said:  ���'Now watch where I am going to show.  Be careful that you get the locations  right." Stooping, he picked up three  stones and pacing forward ho tossed  one of them into the water. It fell to  the south of the spot at whicli the prisoner stood. Another stone fell to the  east and the third was thrown directly  in front of Winters. "That," said the  prisoner, "will mark the water boundary  of the place where your gold is hidden." Stepping to tlie loft, Winters  drew a nail from his pocket and asked  for a hammer. Me then paced a few  yards to tlie right and drove another  nail in tlie timber. "The gold," he continued, "will be between these two  nails, somewhere in line with the stones  1 just tossed into the water." A small  boat was secured and into, it sheriff  Veale, detective Kimball of the Pinker-  ton agency and two laborers were loaded. Winters assisted in the search for  the bricks. He talked glibly all the  while. The deep mud finally put a stop  to operations, and it was decided to  build a cofferdam before trying to recover tlie rest of the treasure.  Winters told the officers that he  planned the robbery long ago with minute detail. He had been two or -three  months on the work on his little tunnel.  It had taken two nights' labor to cut  through the brick wall of the smelter.  Most of the boring in the bottom of the  vaults had been done on the night when  the gold was taken. He carried the  plunder, which was heavy, from the  vault to the water and deposited it  where the water was from three to six  feet deep at low tide. ��� The distance  from the vault to tbis cache was about  a quarter of a mile and ho made 14  round trips. He was at work four hours  on Monday night. Four small bars of  refined gold lie concealed among the  stones of the breakwater, just at the  further mouth of the railroad tunnel.  His purpose had been to use this gold  for present need**. Winters on his last  trip had perceived that, dawn was breaking. Not daring to complete the trip,  ho laid on the shore the two bricks  wliich were found Tuesday morning at  the point where the robbers' boat was  supposed to have landed. The trail of  red pepper ending at that point had  been a blind.  In view of the fact that promises of  clemency were made Winters in consideration of his unearthing the gold, it is  thought that his punishment will be  light. Detective Gibson is quoted as  saying that it was promised Winters by  president Ralston of the Selby Smelting  Works that he should not only not be  prosecuted, but should receive $25,000.  "Winters cannot he prosecuted," said  detective Gibson, "for there is no evidence against him. All that has been  drawn from him was secured by the  detectives under promises that it would  not he used against him. Under such  circumstances it would be extremely difficult to secure a conviction."  REQUIEM   SERVICES   HELD  OVER THE REMAINS OF THE LATE  EMPRESS FREDERICK.  : i  Bomb Exploded in a Church.

Tin; vineyards In whole districts have been shriveled up by the sirocco arrd ruined to the  vory roots, as though set on lire. The air  In the province of Syracuse is barely re-  spirnble and the sea wator Is so warm that  bathing has been abandoned. The people  have been forced lo sleep In the open air.  Corcoran Case Not Up.  . COISI*. Idaho, August 10.���Toddy was the  time set by the board of pardons to pass  on the application for pardon of Paul Corcoran, convicted of murder in the second  degree for participating in lhe murder of  James Cheney during the Coeur d'jUene  riot in April In 1S99. The board did not take  up that rnn tier or any of the others set for  today, but took an adjournment until Monday. Thomas Il.-uiey, ex-sheriff of Shoshone county, is here looking after the  matter for* Corcoran and senator lleitfield  has been here for some days, supposedly  on the same business. It appears that secretary of state Bassetl is for granting the  pardon, that attorney-general Martin is  against and that governor Mull Is non-  commital.  Dragged Out by Undertow.  LONG BKjVCII. Cal., jVugust ]1.���"Elsie  and Imogene Wallace, two sisters, aged respectively 10 and IS years, and Cora Wallace, their cousin, aged 1!) wore drowned  while in bathing at Asbury park, about a  mile from Long "Beach, at 11 o'clock this  morning. Fred Wilkinson nnd Harry Smith  of Los Angeles were irr bathing also. Wilson was tho only member of the party who  could swim. A strong undertow was running and swept the party off their foci.  The girls wore carried beyond roach and  drowned. Smith also bad a narrow CMV.no.  Wilson mariiiged to bring him ashore in  au unconscious condition. The drowned  girls were all residents of Los Angelex  CRONBERG, August 13.���People flocked  into Cronberg from an early hour  today to see the august personages who  would attend the requiem services over  the  remains   of  the   dowager   empress  Frederick.    Throughout  the  night and  again today the officers of the regiment  of which the deceased was honorary colonel  had  stood  guard  over tho coffin.  At 2:30 p. m. the Iteghit regiment formed on the stieet and  the band  of the  Beckenheim Hussars look its stand opposite the. church.    Every window, bal-    -  cony and housetop was filled with people awaiting the arrival of the imperial  procession.      Baron    Reischach,    court  marshal of the dowager empress, superintended the arrangements.    He looked  after the coffin, which was covered with    _  wreaths.    On either  side of the coffin  were four officers holding the standards  of the empire of Prussia and of the deceased.    Between   the  coffin   were   her  officials bearing drawn swords.*  The congregation included the duke of  Connaught, the duke of Cambridge and    .  'several   members   of   British   royalty,   ..  count von Buelow, count von Waldersee,  Dr. Spiethagen and general von Linde-  cuist.  At 4 o'clock the roil of muffled drums  announced the arrival of the cortege, '  and king Edward, who were driven together from Homberg. The emperor,  wearing the black uniform of the empress' own guards, arrived with the p  king in the blue uniform of king Ed- ' '  ward's home guard. Princess* Victoria, "  with, crown prince Frederick William,  and a number of followers came next,  while grouped mound the chancel stood  the other royal personages mentioned,  together with prince Adelbert of Prussia, prince and princess Schaumbiirg  Lippe, the hereditary prince of Saxe-  Ivleingen, the prince and princess Charles  cf .Iles-ie, tlie gi and duke of Baden, the *  crown prince and ^princess of Greece  with their children and the prince of  Reuse, 'together with the suites of all.  Baron von Reischaiche stood at the  right .and count von Seikendorff, who  was .the grand chamberlain of the deceased, at the left of the coffin. As the  organ played the funeral march, Dr.  Dyrander advanced to the head of tlie  coffin. The choir sang, "I Know That  My ,Redeemer Liveth," and Dr. Dyrander read a specially written prayer, followed by the words of the buiial service, "Dust to dust, ashes to ashes." The  choir then sang the anthem, "The Spirit  Sayeth They Rest From Their Labors."  Then followed the magnificent hymn,  "Wenn Ich Einmal Soil Scheiden," and  a beautiful rendering of "Bo Thou Faithful. Unto Death." As the last strains  died away, the king and queen Alexandra advanced and laid a wreath upon  the coffin. The king remained standing  for a few moments alone boaide tho  coffin and then turned and left the  church, which  slowly  emptied.   The service owed much of its imprcs-  siveness to the historical associations  recalled by the medieval edifice in wliich  it was held.  CRONBERG, August 11.���Vast crowds  of people are arriving here, the hotels  are overflowing and the town is overrun with English people in deep mourning. After the funeral at Potsdam, king  Edward- will return to Homberg for a  course of waters, living at his accustomed hotel.  Tlie coffin of the dowager empress is  of English stylo with flat cover, not  German pyiamidal style. Tlio deceased  designated the rosettes ornamenting it  over and also designed the coffin. The  train to bring tlie funeral party to Potsdam has been prepared at Frankfort.  The car which will carry .the coffin is  trimmed with English mourning colors,  black and white, and richly ornamented.  IL*  Inroads by the Americans.  NEW YORK, August 11.���Among the  passengers who arrived from Europe on  the Hamburg-American liner Augusto  Victoria was Homy C. Payne, ex-chairman of the Republican national committee.  Mr. Payne said it was impossible for  an American in Europe not to be impressed with tlio strides made by American manufactuies. Particulaily in Austria-Hungary and Germany, he said,  were the people apprehensive of tlie inroads America was making in their  trade. A few years ago, he said, Austria  was sending shoes to America, whilo  now there was in operation in Vienna  an American shoe store, where only  American made shoes were sold. Tho  Germans, Mr. Payne said, are much impressed with the way Americans do business, and are sendimr their representatives to this country to get pointers.  Colombian Affairs  WILLEMSTAD, Curocoa, August 11.���  The Colombian minister and all tho  members of the Colombian legation will  leave Caracas tomorrow for a temporary  absence. Thero has been no rupture  of the diplomatic relations, however,  between Colombia and Venezuela. William V. Russell,,:: the .United States  charge d'affaires, will take care of Colombian  interests.  if'"I  ?  w  ? 7\\  fr j"i" 8!  h.  ���i ret- -<^i.-,i-"*3'^'-_n:'-3-i--.-wv  ,_\���_���,  THE  TRIBUTE:  KELSON, B. 0., MONDAY, AUGUST 12, 1901  CLEAR  OUT  This week we are making  clearance sales of a few  special lines of goods.

These two  men can have special constables sworn  in at will, can store arms on the premises under their control, in fact, can do  anything they wish except operate mines  successfully, and no one, not even the  constituted authorities, dare lift a finger  without having the mud batteries of the  Rossland Miner turned on them at short  range. What a blessing it is to live in  a free country!  The honorable J. D. Prentice, provincial secretary and minister of education,  who is a sort of fifth-wheel in the  Dunsmuir government, is at Rossland  working himself to death trying to convince the people of that town that they  should cheerfully contribute a portion  of the money reauired for the erection  of public school buildings.  -*;      The Greenwood Times says that the  2 per cent tax on the output of the mines  , means  a. 20  per  cent tax  on   the  net  . - 'profits of some of the low-grade Bout--  dary district ores���a tax that would  lot  1- be tolerated or paid on any other in-  ~r    dustry.     Such   expressions   of   opinion  j     disgust reasonable-thinking men.    How  ,*���    many industrial and business ventures  tin this province, in the way of farming  _"  ;and  lumbering and printing and  merchandising, can show a profit?   Yet all,  "   , without a single exception, are required  -to pay taxes.   -The Tribune will venture  '' .the assertion tliat the Greenwood Times  t.    is regulaily assessed for taxation, y��-t  I   the Times has hot declared very n-.yny  i"   "dividends.   How many farmers in Brit-  y  -ish'Columbia are making net profits?  *���"    Yet every one of them is required to  "7' pay taxes.   How many of the sawmills  <-"   operated in the province are operated  y ,at a profit?   Yet every one of them are  y 'not only required  to pays direct taxes  ' \ on. their real estate, but a royalty, as  , *  well, on the lumber they manufacture.  .Z   It is safe to say that 25 per cent of the  ty men engaged in merchandising are not  "'-  making a dollar, but they are all  re-  '*    quired to pay taxes on their merchan-  .,  * dise.   Is it not about time to Quit talk-  ���*-    ing about  the   inability  of  our  mines  to pay taxes?   If there are mines in the  -   Boundary district that are being worked  * at a loss, why advertise" the fact?   A  mine that is unable to pay a tax of two  cents a ton on its  output had   better  -   remain unworked until such time as it  ''can be worked at a profit.  The Outcrop, a newspaper published  at Peterboro, in East Kootenay, mentions hon. W. C. Wells, the only Liberal  in the Dunsmuir government, as a coming premier of British Columbia, and  the motion is seconded by the Revelstoke Mail. It is safe to say Wells will  never be heard of as a political entity  once premier Dunsmuir casts him adrift.  ���J* ���!" *** "J* *J" %* *J* *���" "I* *I* *i* *I* *I* *i* *i* *1* *I" *I*  * Classified    advertisements    in-   *  * serted for ONE-HALF CENT A *  * word each insertion.

The Victoria Colonist says it is not  the personal organ of premier puns-  muir.

It- says that premier  dunsmuir has not at his back a servile'  voting machine. No, but he has as advisers two or three as servile men as  ever held office, and if he wishes to remain what the Columbian says he is,  that is, "a leader of unijuestioned busi-  " ness ability, a man of the highest  " integrity and purest honor, broad-minded, progressive, and loyal to the  -"core to the interests of British Colum-  " bia," he will have to surround himself  with heads of departments who are men  of unquestioned  business ability,  men  _of the_highest_integrity=and���purest^  honor,  men  broadminded,  progressive,  and loyal to the core to the interests of  British   Columbia.

New Zealand, the only country which  lias a compulsory arbitration law, is  the only country in which for five! years,  with one or two insignificant exceptions,  there has -been no strike or lockout  in the world of organized labor. The  New Zealand experiment answers every  test which can be applied to prove the  claim of a new institution to be a; permanent "and veritable addition*to the  world's social inventions. Practically it  does! what it undertook to do���it.ushers  in industrial peace. Philosophically, it  is-an extension to a. new field���that of  industrial anarchy���of' anv old institution���that of the law���by which social  peace has been created in the other territories of disorder. Every day since  its introduction the law has struck" its  roots deeper into the life'of the New  Zealand people, and it further approves  itself by producing not only what was  expected of it, but many new and almost equally important fruits, such as  checking cut-throat competition between  business men and putting an end to  trade dishonesty. Another feature of  the New Zealand law which commends  itself to the philosophical student of  institutions is that its appearance came  in the direct line'of evolutionary development. Other communities, notably  Massachusetts, had carried arbitration  up to the Rubicon of compulsion. New  Zealand took the next step.

Hall and print-  II  in  the  Now York Engineering and  lining Journal, may be of interest to  lining men who read The Tribune:  I "With the advent of electricity on the  jmstock, it became necessary to take  I) the problem  of hoisting from  con-  Jderable depths by means of electrical  Bicrgy and after much research and a  ���orough investigation of the then ex-  ting electrical  hoisting machinery,  it  las evident that in order to meet our  Imditions of service and power some-  l.ing  must  be  had   radically  different  [om the usual run of such machinery,  le  writer  then,   after  discussing  the  [after with the Risdon Iron Works of.  in  Francisco,- decided  on the system  (���scribed in this article, the ultimate refit being the development, installation  lid successful.operation of a continuous  !>pe electric hoist, driven by means ot  variable speed, three-phase induction  |:o tor.  The power of the Comstock is develop-  on the Truckee river at a point near  Jloriston, 33  miles from the mines in  jtorey county, Nevada.   The generating  pttioii' .is  equipped  with  a�� 2-750 Kw.,  phase, GO cycle,' Westinghouse generators  and   G-300   Kw. , oil-cooled   transformers.    McCormic  turbines  arc  used  fo drive the generators and a close regulation is secured by means of Lombard  Governors.   At tlie station the potential  Is raised from 400 volts to 24,000 volts,  \t whicli pressure it is transmitted over  la double circuit of No.  4  hard  drawn  I'opper wire.   At-the sub-station in Vir-  inia City the potential is reduced  io  12300 volts and in this form is distributed to the various mining companies.  , In the case of each hoist but one, namely, that at the C. & C. shaft, it is again  reduced to about 450 volts.  The power is purchased of the Truckee  River General Electric Company upon  la continuous rate basis, the amount beting-" fixed by a peak load of two minutes'  (duration. Under these conditions, it has  fthercfore been the endeavor of the minting  companies  to  secure a  hoist that  SAVINGS BANK DEPARTMENT:  Intorost allowed  ou  deposits.

" .      ' o .  To meet the condition of high efficiency, it is evident that the motor  should operate continuously at or near  its full load capacity and be designed  especially for the work it has to perform. For a continuous full load condition, the work must of necessity be constant at all points in the lift and the  nearest possible approach to this was  secured by the adoption of the continuous rope or balanced system, where the  load is reduced to the weight of the rock  alone. Then to secure the necessary  variation in speed an induction motor  with a non-induction resistance in both,  primary and secondary was developed,  the resistance being varied by the introduction of a modified- form of the ordinary street car controller. With an  equipment of this kind the cages aro  started slowly and the dip in line voltage is comparatively slight, being about  7 per cent at starting. By running on  the second notch of the controller one-  third of the maximum speed may be  maintained for the full length of the  shaft.  The hoist itself consists essentially of  ,a main driving drum to secure the necessary friction for lifting. From the main  drivings-drum, the rope is carried over  the head sheave, down one compartment,  under a movable tail sheave, back to  the second compartment over a second,  head sheave and on to the driving drum.  One cage is inserted between the ends'  of the cable and tho other fastened by-  means of heavy iron clamps, one above  and one below the cage in the adjacent  compartment. This simple arrangement enables us to vary the relative  positions of the cages at pleasure and  also permits .us to use one cage in a  single compartment without reference  to the other.  The hoist is necessarily a geared machine, the motor speed being reduced  by the introduction of cut gearing. To  the main drum is attached a brake ring  upon which is operated a' heavy post  brake. This brake is set automatically  by means of a heavy weight and is released by hydraulic pressure. In the case  of the Yellow Jacket and Belcher, there  are two hoists side by side, both being  operated by one motor. One of these is  intended,for the vertical shaft and the  other for the incline, which leaves the  vertical at-the point where the vein  intersects it. Double deck cages are  used in each compartment of the vertical shafts and a two-ton self-dumping  giraffe .in each compartment of tho inclines.  The hoists have been erected in the  most substantial manner upon concrete  foundations and thero is practically no  vibration and very little noise. The  following table will give complete data  upon each of the four installations:  Nelson Branch���Burns Block, 221 Baker  Street.  J. M.

Theoretically tlie house of commons  ends its day's business at midnight, but  the 12 o'clock rule has been suspended  and the past week the house worked  till 5 or 6 in the morning in order to get  through with the ministerial program.  In conseauence it has been a most ill-  tempered assembly. Each hour was  marked by asperities, wliich is quite unusual. T. P. O'Connor says the late  hours were responsible for this. Anybody acquainted with members of parliament can tell at a glance whether  they had been up the night before. The  hair of the members, in that case, is  disheveled, their cheeks -are pale and  there is a certain hysterical acrid ring  in their voices. Many were lying fast  asleep at 5 in- the morning. Indeed,  everybody's temper gives way ' after  these long sittings. The violent scenes  the past week were also partly due to  the excessive heat.  to  to  9\  to  Established Jn Nelson 1890.  -Tho more yniii lin vo lodo with Jacob Dover.

In each of the foregoing the contin-  lous rope or balanced system has been  fdopted and the actual load lifted  (mounts.to the weight of the rock alone,  Jus the friction losses. The load is  instant at all points in the lift, aiTd the  train upon the mechanism equalized at  111 times except when starting and stop-  ling.  ^The Yellow Jacket hoist was a success  |om  the  start  and  was  operated  for  |iore than a month with a single cage  one compartment.   This is the heaviest test to which the hoist can be sub-  fccted and under  these conditions the  arformance  is  as   near  perfection  as  liy hoist I have ever seen.   Tests were  Jade during the time and the following  Il*e the results:    Weight of cage, 1200  Is.; car, 850 lbs.; rock, 1600-lbs.;'total  feight lifted, 3C50 lbs.   Other conditions  lere:    Maximum rope t.peed, 600 ft. per  Mnute; length of vertical lift, 1175 ft.;  Rme of hoisting,  2  min.   10 sec.  from  lie moment the load was started until  Itge was landed on chairs at the sur-  lice; time to accelarate load, 8 seconds;  pwer required as per wattmeter read-  igs was 88.40 H. P.; theoretical power  [���.quired, 66.40 H. P.   Efficiency of sys-  T-m is therefore about 75 per cent and  [lis includes motor deficiency and all  fiction Josses from secondary of trans  formers.  Secondary voltage was 525 volts before starting and the running voltage  slightly over 500. The maximum current  per phase at starting was 180 amperes  and 85 amperes when operating at full  load. A reading was also taken while  lifting the empty cage at 600 ft. per minute and the wattmeter showed 48 H. P.  It.will therefore be seen that the results obtained are remarkably good and  no trouble should be experienced with  a hoist of this character upon any well  regulated plant.  It is believed the successful operation  of this hoist is a decided advance in  mine hoisting���-not alone in the high  efficiency secured, but also in the large  capacity as compared with the size of  the motor in use. Of course, there are  cases to which this system is not adapted, but wherever it is applicable it is  certainly worthy of serious consideration where economical operation is a  feature of the development  All the hoists are built so that the  speed can be doubled using two motors  instead of one. This would give twice  the capacity named in the table.  Pursuant to the "Creditor's Trust Deeds  jVct" tiiitl amending' acts.

Owing to the unskilled work of the  green employees, the entire molten contents "of the furnace was emptied on the  floor of the smelter. The fiery stream ran  across the floor of'the smelter and into the  ditch which runs alongside the settling  tank. On reaching the water the molten  mass began to escape. The settling tank  containing tons of matte valued at about  $3000 was blown to atoms and the contents  of the tank was precipitated into the  ditch, also exploding, the stream of boiling metal flowing into the water ditch,  causing a continuous series of explosions  for some time. -At each explosion a great  mass of flame and fiery metal was hurled  high In the ah*.

While the  greater part of the carpenter work to be  done till tne new buildings go up later in  the year Is already finished, Mr. Williams  has put several carpenters at work, and  will,put on more us needed. Those that conferred with Mr. Williams are not slow to  appreciate the consideration which ho  showed them. .On his part Air.

Apparently Canadian municipal debentures are somewhat of a drug on tho market, judging from the tenders received by  tne city of Winnipeg. Out of .��000,000 l_pcr  cent .debentures offered by the city, only  one-third, or $300,000, have boen placed.  This amount was alloted in two pontons  to Montreal firms, at the price of Si'.Y.) and  ���fUS.IO respectively. It is quite easy to understand that owing to the vast expansion  of Canadian trade local firms can phice  their money to bettei advantage than lu l  per cent debentures.
