C, SATURDAY, AUGUST; 10, 1901  FIVE CENTS  ACTIVE   MINING   DISTRICT  ' PILOT BAY AND ITS SURROUNDING CAMPS.  . The Excellent Results Obtained From  the Highlander Mine Is in a  Measure Responsible,  .. PILOT BAY, August- 7.���[Special to  The Tribune.] ��� Notwithstanding the  goneral feeling of uncertainty in the  mining industry, there is greater ac-  f, tivity in the district".surrounding..Pilot  Bay than has been evident for several  seasons. This condition is due primarily  to the excellent results obtained' in the  deep workings of the Highlander at  Ainsworth and to the many meritorious  showings " uncovered in. the Crawford  Creole section and other nearby points.  Work on the new tunnel of the Commonwealth is being rushed and the contractors expect to complete the first  200 feet in about two months.  Sawyer Brothers, who have taken a  contract for a 200-foot the  Great Bane group, recently sold by them  and their co-owners to J. C. Drewry and  associates, have taken in a crew cf men  with supplies sufficient for three months  and will begin work to morrow. The  Great Dane, known��throughout the St.  ���Mary's district as tho "Big Galena," has  a good surface showing of oro, and tho  - new owners confidently expect to make  a mine out of the property.  E. C. Rose and R. A. Jackson have  completed the season's work on the  Xena and Wing groups in White Grouse,  besides doing assessment work on Henry  Roy's claims in that district, and yesterday took four men, with a complete  outfit, into St Mary's, where they own  several promising groups.' They will  devote the remainder of the season to  work on the Jackson and Mogul groups,  . .which lie on Bulldog mountain between  the west and north branches of the St.  Mary's. , Bach of these groups has an  immense ledge of quartz carrying copper pyrites' and gold. .The .Mogul shaft,  ~ begun, last fall, is to be deepened from  15 feet to G5 feet, while the tunnel, on  tho Jackson- ledge,' noiv'in. 20 feet, is to  be extended 50 or (50 feet. The difficulty of transporting supplies proves a  licavy handicap in working these claims,  in common with many others in St.  Mary's, but the owners expect that this  season's work will show results sufficiently favorable to justify thorough  development.  ��� Considerable attention is being paid  to .the copper ledge which runs frcm  Canyon creek to Sawyer creek. Many  claims' have been staked on the load,  and wherever the ledge has been opened  up good ore is to be seen. The biggest  showing'is undoubtedly that on the Climax group at tho head of the right hand  branch of Sawyer creek. This group  of four claims is owned by Fred Coglc,  Sawyer Brothers and W.. T. Dickson.  In the various places where it has been  uncovered the ledge shows a width of  four to seven feet, the filling being  ���quartz and yellow copper. The owners  claim the ore assays 2 1-2 to 22 por cent  copper, ;13 to 30 ounces of silver ar.d  from a trace to $9 in gold to the ton,  =^vJtlwan^ayerage^QCJ_0=p.eiLJ3.ent^.c_oppj*Lr..  Two thousand dollars have been expended on this group. A 20-foot tuunel,  giving 25 feet of depth, has cut the vein,  the face being all in ore. -  Below the Climax lies the Atlantic  ptoup of four claims, with a lodge of  the same character, and somewhat  greater average width. The ore is said  to assay about tho same as that of the  Climax and the showing is nearly as  good. On the Atlantic there is a crosscut tunnel 40 feet long, which is expected to cut the vein within a few feet.  From surface workings on this property  about four cars of ore have been taken.  These two ledges may be worked by  tunnels at a depth of over 1500 feet.  Smoke from bush fires around Crawford Bay hangs over the lake. Several  ranchers have suffered by me burning  of outbuildings and timber.  Lumbering operations around Kootenay lake are now about over for the season. The aggregate cut of logs is very  high, being estimated at 8,000.000 feet.  A great quantity of shingle bolts and  railroad ties have also been brought  out. .     -   "  John McKane returned yesterday  from Spring Creek, whither he went  to examine some galena properties.  Work on the Silver Hill tramway  is expected to begin in a few days.  Trackmen G-o Back to Work  The officials of the Canadian Pacific  railway report the trackmen's strike  as lifted on the branches of the Kootenay section of the Columbia river. The  men on the Rossland branch have been  at work for the past week, and on the  Columbia & Western branch from West  Robson to Greenwood the foremen have  been gradually resuming work. Yesterday morning there were but three of the  old track foremen out, but by noon yesterday all were reported to be back at  work. This is the report of H. L. Johnson, the roadmaster on the Columbia &  Western section. The last foreman to  resume work was the man stationed at  Farron, and at noon yesterday Mr. Johnson reported every man at work and  added that he had a couple of good foremen to spare. On the branches this  side of the Columbia a very different  condition of affairs exists, but the ofli-  ���cials are hopeful that within the ensuing week work upon these branches 1  will bo generally resumed, but it is  likely that several new men will be required, as many of the old foremen have  left for other parts.  Reid's Great Power Scheme.  J. Keith Reid continues to keep his  power scheme before the city council.  This time he is writing from Montreal  and he incloses an indorsement of his  scheme from the manager of the Laurie  Engine Company of Montreal. This gentleman says he has very carefully gone  into the plans prepared by Mr. Reid for  the installation of a power plant, using  under-shot wheels with improved floats  upon, a double-hulled scow moored in  the swift water, and lie gives it as his  opinion that no part of the plans present  at.3' mechanical difficulties. With the  plans shown, and a . 12-mile current,  there should not be the least difficulty  in developing 500 horse power. This  opinion is of interest, inasmuch as It  differs from the opinion of almost every  other engineer who has 'given the  scheme of Mr. Reid any serious consideration whatever, but it will scarcely  have the effect of inducing the council  to give it any countenance.  Annual Election.of Officers  The annual   meeting   of the   Nelson  Operatic Society was held yesterday afternoon and was largely attended.   The  election of officers for the ensnins. year  resulted as follows: Honorary president, G. V. Holt; president, Dr. LaBau;  vice-presidents'. Hamilton Byers and S.  S. Taylor; manager, Melville Parry; secrotary, T. G. Haultain; committee, J.  C. T. Crofts, H. A. Stewart, J. S. Car-  tor, T. Morley, J. M. Lay, R. A. Weir, A.  R. Sherwood and D. A. McFarland. It  was decided to produce an opera about  the middle of November. Numerous  operas were suggested, but the final decision will bo made at another general  meeting of tho members of the society.

WASHINGTON, August 9.���Neither  the state nor tho navy departments were  able to throw any light upon the president's dispatch from Willemstad, stating  that the Venezuela government an-~  nounced that **. new Colombian invasion  occurred yesterday near Colon. An explanation suggested was that the Colon  mentioned was not that on the isthmus,  but some" obscure place along the Venezuelan frontier. No further official reports have come regarding the situation  -On_the~isthmus-and_the_officials_apnear_  content to rest for the present with  what has already been done in preparing  to protect American interests. They  don't regard the situation as serious,' but  desire to be ready'if it should become  serious.: The batleship Wisconsin had  not reported her departure to the navy  department during the early part of tho  clay, but it is expected that she will be  on her way south very soon. As San  Francisco is over 3000 miles from Panama the battle ship will probably proceed further down the coast, probably  to San Dieso, California, -and there  await developments on the isthmus. The  navy department has not yet decided  whether commander Nathan Sargeant  will take the Machias all the way down  to the isthmus or bo succeeded by some  other officer.  WASHINGTON, August 9���The situation in Colombia and Venezuela continued to occupy much of the attention  of officials here today and while it was  not felt that affairs had reached a serious aspect, yet it was appreciated that  both the official and unofficial advices  indicated a condition of affairs which  might mean war between Colombia and  Venezuela, complicated by revolutionary  outbreaks in both countries. During the  day the state- department received a  .rather lengthy mail communication from  consul general Gudger at Panama, and  though this was dated nearly a month  ago it told of the landing of a revolutionary expedition and expressed the  current belief held at Panama that this  would be followed by other expeditions.  The department also received a letter  from J. Edward Simmons of New York,  president of the Pan-American railroad,  confirming his communication of yesterday relative to the trouble on the  isthmus and stating that the superintendent of the road had advised him as  to the depredations of an insurgent band  which did not number, however, much  over 50 men. The more serious aspect  of the matter was presented in the press  dispatches from Willemstad, stating that  the Colombians again had invaded Venezuela. There was no official confirmation as to this and If it should prove  true there seems little chance of avoiding an open conflict between these two  countries, as such an invasion of Colombia would be in itself an act of war.  PARIS, August 9.���The Echo de Paris  today prints a long interview with the  French ambassador to the United States,  M. Jules Cambon, during which he says  on tho subject of the steel strike, that  the workman in America is not hostile  to the moneyed aristocracy and believes that with intelligence and good  luck he may also become.a Carnegie.  So, Instead of being jealous, he says  that Carnegie .played his game fairly.  M. Camboii is also quoted as saying:  "Europeans have no idea how hard  Americans, both- rich and poor, work.  Tho Fr.ench people are not aware how  many French there are in America, especially the descendants of French people. A large part of tne United States  was settled by the French and if their  descendants have not reserved that language they still love France. The  Americans speak English, but they are  not English. The whole efforts of the  Americans have been, to weld into a  single metal the French, English and  Germans who compose the nation. The  French language is popular. If the educated young women of France who are  vainly seeking employment in schools  would go to America they could easily  gain a good living there as teachers.  The Americans, perhaps, are inclined to  reproach the French with, remembering  too well what they did for America.  Still the cultured classes know, what  America owes to France."  Describing the country M. Cambon  says: "When one returns to Europe  after living with the Americans, everything here looks small. America is so  colossal aud so young that she has many  other surprises in store for the Euro-  iiean."  The Police Theory.  SAN .FRANCISCO, August 9.���The  theory upon which the detectives are-  now 'working Is -that the recent smelter  robbery was executed by one man only.  It is thought that the two-bars of gold  found on the waters' edge were placed,  there designedly for the purpose of ere-'  atlng the impression that the gold had  been carried away in a boat. On this  hypothesis a strict search is being made  near the scene of the robbery, for the  stolen property.  John Winters, alias . "Buck" Taylor,  now in custody, is claimed by the police to have beer, the man who planned  and executed the robbery of the Selby  smelter at Vallejo, which netted ?2S3.-  000. The stolen bullion, the police believe, is buried near Winters' cabin, not  far from the smelting- works, or sunk  in the shallow waters of the bay near  by. Winters is a man of some education,  but from the day he landed in America  from Prussia he has led a roving life,  seldom staying more than a few months  in any city. Since he arrived in Crockett, several years ago, he has lived a  hermit's life.  rolled over her beam ends, and before  she could recover a large roller caused  her to turn turtle.  The steamer Alexander Berry was  dashed on the rocks near Shell harbor  during the gale and four men were  drowned���captain Marshall, engineer  Bartlett, fireman W. Pearce. John Pratt  and, J. Jensen, seamen.  The,bark Passe Partout from Puget  Sound to Sydney with lumber was  caught in the gale and was almost a  wreck when picked up and towed to  New Castle.  The wreck of the bark Norden, off the  entrance to Suva, Fiji, was,also reported. She was a total loss, but her crew  of 13 were saved and taken to Sydney.  En Route to Cronberg.  LONDON, August 9.���King Edward,  queen Alexandra, princess Victoria,  prince Nicholas of Greece and a distinguished"-'-official'.narty" left London tonight for Port Victoria.

Their majesties will be welcomed  on tlieir arrival at Flushing by vice admiral Kennedy and other high naval  personages. There will be r.o salutes,  however, or other demonstrations. The  royal party will proceed to Cronberg  and thence to Potsdam for the funeral  next Tuesday.  Discredit the Rumor  LONDON, Aurrust 9.���The war office  has received no color to  the rumor circulated by' a news agency  in the United States that lord Kitchener  has been wounded in' a skirmish with  the Boers. The rumor is officially discredited. Lord .Kitchener's customary  dispatches reached the war office this  afternoon and contained no reference to  any accident to him.  WILL STAND BY STRIKERS  FEDERATION OF LABOR TO LEND  FINANCIAL SUPPORT, *  Strongest Labor Organization in America Allies Itself With the Amalgamated Association.  Claims Bresci Was Not the Man.  NEW YORK, August 9.���Alexander  Segura, a detective in the employ of  the Italian government, is credited by  the Journal and Advertiser with the  statement that Bresci was not the man  who killed king Humbert of Italy. The  man who killed Humbert is, according  to Segura, one Luigi Granottia,'a former  .comrade of Bresci in Paterson, who  stood .at Bresci's side when the latter  fired on the king. Granottia is said to  have fired the fatal shot after Bresci  had thrice discharged his revolver without effect. This discovery was made  by Segura, he maintains, while he was  working in the guise of a silk mill hand  among the anarchists of Paterson.  - ��� pittSBURG; August- '9.--^There' were  gravely important developments in the  strike situation today. The United  States Steel Corporation moved decisively in its strike campaign with a peremptory order directing that ��� the great  Dewees wood plant at McKeesport be  dismantled and removed to the Kiski-  menetas valley.  President Gompers of tho American  Federation of Labor, after a two days'  conference with president Shaffer and  his associates, issued a formal statement  tonight speciiically pledging the federation to the moral and financial support  of the Amalgamated Association. His  written review c!' tho train of events  loading u;. to the industrial quarrels  sustains the course of the Amalgamated  Association and declares tliat nothing  remains for labor but a battle for the  cause cf unionism. The ��� official announcement' of the ordoi* to dismantle  the Dewees wood plant came this afternoon toward the close of an otherwise  uneventful day and its importance was  ^such_that_it^claimed_the,serious-consid^  eratlon of the men on either side of the  great industrial conflict now being  wa_red here.  The Cyclers  PROVIDENCE, R. I.,, August 9.���Bobby Walthour defeated Moran in the 25-  mile motor-paced race at the Coliseum  tonight by four laps.

VICTORIA, August 9.���Heavy gales  off the Australian coast during early  July caused the loss of several vessels  and the loss of a number of lives. The  steamer Manley was wrecked off the  entrance to Sydney heads and 50 passengers and her crew spent an awful  night in the gale before reaching shore.  During the same gale the tug Protector turned turtle while entering Ballina  harbor and six men were drowned. They  were captain J. J. Lewis, engineer Ben  Walton, fireman John Vickey, T. Tobia-  son and D. Phillips, deck hands. The  tug was crossing the bar when the seas 1  DISASTERS ON  THE  RAIL  Smashups North and South.  CHICAGO, August 9.���Advices received from Galveston, Texas, from Sabine,  says the correspondent of the Record-  Herald, state that the southbound  Southern Pacific passenger train from  Beaumont to Sabine pass fell through  the bridge over Keith lake bayou, seven  miles north of that place yesterday. The  entire train was precipitated into the  bayou, almost sinking out of sight.  Thirty passengers were aboard and had  It not been for the tug Earnest being  anchored near by with a fishing party  aboard thoy would have perished in the  water. The members of the fishing  party and the crew.of the tug hastened  to the rescue of those on the train and  succeeded in getting all the passengers  out. Holes were cut through the roof  of the cars. . <  BATAVIA, N.Y., August 9.���The! two  rear cars and observation coach and a  Pullman parlor car on the Lehigh Valley's eastbound Black Diamond express  jumped the track and broke loose from  the balance of the train at North Leroy,  10 miles east of Batavia, shortly after  noon today. The parlor car remained  on the ties and no person in it was injured, but the observation car plunged  down the embankment and dropped over  on its side in the ditch. .It was badly  demolished, but only eight of its occupants were injured and they were not  seriously. The injured who sustained  only bruises and small cuts about the  head and body were: Mr. and Mrs.  Fred Keener of Lakewood, N. J.; Mr.  and Mrs. Luke Johnson of Lakewood,  N. J.; F. M. Crane, Brooklyn; L. W.  Pop, Brooklyn, and George M. Bently,  Pullman car conductor, and L. M. Amos,  porter. Their wounds were dressed by  doctors summoned from Leroy, and they  proceeded on the unwrecked portion of  the train, which went on to New York.  The cause of tho accident is a mystery.  Where the observation car went down  the embankment the rails seem to have  spread towards the edge.

I'  j*?  l-v* .  I'Vl   >  if  r-  I  k'  \w  ��  No person should be admitted to membership in a trades union unless able  and willing to pass an examination as  to competency.   A trades union working  ���f     card should be a certificate of competency, and the person who carried one  should not be ashamed to show the card  when applying for work.   Much of the  ���     friction that has arisen in Kootenay was  caused by the admission to labor unions  1   of  persons  who  were not qualified to  become   members  of  the  unions  they  joined.   At the last session of the legis-  latuie the Coal  Mines Regulation Act  was amended, and provision was "made  for the examination of coal miners, fire-  bosses, overmen, and shot lighters.   .On  -and after January 15th next no person  "   will be employed in any coal mine in  the province of British Columbia as a  >    coal miner,, hreboss, overman, or shot  lighter who is  not in possession of a  certificate of competency.    Such certificate of competency will be granted by  a board of five examiners, .to be con-  .   stituted at each mine, one appointed by  the government, two by the owner or  l     "manager of the mine, and two by miners  ���J    actually working m the mine;  and no  certificate is to be granted to any person who does not satisfy the'majority  ,   of the board of examiners that he is  sufficiently conversant with the English  -  language and with the provisions of the  ;-    acts reletting to coal mining and rules  and   regulations   made   thereunder,   to  render  his  employment  as  such. safe.  Similar legislation might not work an  . injury to other trades and callings.  The last issue of the Mining Record  , of Victoria (which, by the way, is fast  becoming the equal of any mining pub-  - 'lication in America) contains the financial statement of the North Star Mining Company, which- operates the celebrated  Noith  Star  group *of  mines  at  ��� 'Kimberley in East Kootenay. For the  twelve months ending May 31st, 1901,  the company shipped ore of the value of  $719,195.51. The cost of mining, developing, and prospecting is put down at  $75,43183, and the amount paid over  for freight and treatment-is given at  $354,324.27. The government was paid  $0950.33 ore tax, and the directors got   $4000_as_fees AlLother=.expenses=-total=  $2256.12. Under the taxation laws of  British Columbia the North Star paid 2  per cent on the value of. the ore after  the cost of freight and treatment was  deducted, which amounted to $354,324.27..  The tax therefore was paid on the difference between that amount and the  amount received from the ore shipped,  that is, $719,195.51. The difference  amounts to $364,871.24; 2 per cent on  which is $7297.42. The difference be-  . tween this sum and the sum actually  paid is explained by the fact that the  tax.was but 1 per cent for three months  of the year. In Montana, where the tax  is 3 per cent on the net returns, the  same ore values would have paid  $8286.98 taxes, or $1000 more than in  British Columbia under the 2 per cent  tax.   In March, 1900, Red Mountain at Rossland was like an armed camp.    Guards  were everywhere, over 30 having been  sworn in in two weeks as special policemen by the city authorities.    They  were under a sergeant, and he took his  orders from Le Roi McDonald and War  Eagle Kirby.    Arms were secreted on  ���the premises of the War Eagle company!     Winchester   rifles   and   sawed-off  shotguns   and   44   Colt's   were  handy.  But,   in   time,   the    guards   were    discharged.    The   Winchester   rifles   and  ..awed-off shotguns and 44 Colt's were  laid aside until they would  be needed.  The Northport strike followed in about  a year, and it is generally believed the  arms and  ammunition were  smuggled  across the line in ore cars so as to be  useful   in   breaking  that   strike.    But  there are people in Rossland who imagined the rifles and shotguns and revolvers were still on Red Mountain, and  a search was made for them on Thursday.   The only weapons found, however,  fvere champagne bottles-���a much more  ijcs.1 !���/ w-<si,.r.., Uian oluiw a WhRtetsr  rifle ol' u Colt's revolver.  The strike. .It the Northport smelter  commenced about two months ago, and  the United States has been pretty well  scoured for men to take the places of  the strikers. Men were brought to North-  port from Redding, California, only to  quit when (the condition of affairs was  explained to them. Men were brought  from Leadville, Colorado, herded like  convlcta, and they quit when they found  that they had been deceived. Men were  brought from Duluth, Minnesota, and  they refused to go farther than Spokane,  when they learned the true condition  of affairs. There should be a judge in  the United States willing to issue an  injunction restraining the agents of corporations like the Northport smelter  from making false representations to  laboring men. Government by injunc  tion should work both ways.  <*.< $ >J* ��.���* -j' * *j* �� 'P # ��!���< J& -<*��� -i- -j*��>- ��i< ��J��  * Cla&aifU'tl   advertiH-jinehtg   In*  * serted for ONE-HALF CENT A  * word each insertion.

WASHINGTON,'August 9.���The annual report of major general MacArthur  to July 4, 1901, the day he relinquished  command of the division of the Philippines, has been received by the war department. The period covered by the  report is from October, 1900, when the  last report from general MacArthur was  dated. He reviews the policy of the  Filipinos who were hostile to the Americans, saying that their action since the  practical collapse of the insurrection has  been a perplexing problem. With the  disbandment of the insurgent field  armies the Filipinos organized desperate resistance by- banding the people  together in support of the guerillas.  This was carried out by means of committees who collected contributions, inflicted punishment and carried ��� on a  considerable opposition to the Americans. General MacArthur says that the  proclamation issued on December 20,  firmly declaring the Intention of the  United States'to hold the islands and to  have the laws observed, had a good  effect and the secret resistance was  much abated. A considerable proportion of the. report is devoted to the field  operations of the army.  Wisconsin May Go to Panama.  WASHINGTON, August 9.���The navy  department has ordered the. battleship  Wisconsin, now at the '��� Puget Sound  naval station, to San Francisco, to be  in readiness there to proceed to Panama  in case the state department asked for  a war vessel on the Pacific side of the  isthmus. This, action was taken wheii'  the navy department received from the  state department a dispatch of president Simmons of the Panama Railroad  Company suggesting that a warship be  sent to the Pacific side of the isthmus.  ___jUmCLES FOR SALE.

Tho Slocan Drill is enthusiastic ve-  ;arding the prospects ot the country  Immediately tributary to the town in  ���which it is published. Iii its last issue  lit says:    "What is true of the Slocan  |:livision proper  is  decidedly so of the  Slocan City division, where the advance-  fmcnt of the past year has been as re-  Imarkable as it is gratifying. It is known  [as the dry ore belt and is receiving rec-  lognition today .'from every mining au-  Ithority in the "west.   The outside press  |c.evotes considerable space to the camp  md mining men are giving it an attention   strongly   marked   in   contrast   to  ���years past.    The progress of the camp  lis   directly   attributable   to   the  opera-'  Itions pf the combination of capital era-  [braced in the Arlington and Speculator-  lines,; and  the  success  met  with   by  them is encouraging others to opoiivup  land develop properties.   Today there are  lat a conservative estimate 325 lnenein-  j'loyed in the camp, giving a daily pay-  froll-of $1000.   With supplies added, the  monthly disbursements are not far short  lof ��� $50,000. ���* The result of this is seen  lin-the shipments, "which, now equal the  (figures-:-for-all" 1900, while the tonnage  Ifor the full year will'surely roach the  |4000-ton mark, establishing a record the  lost  sanguine    of  a   year   ago    never  [dreamed of.   In value the shipments are  squally as good  as  in the past., while  (reduced rates for freight and treatment  [make the net profits greater.  "Last   year's   shipnunits   have   been  ^passed and a new record established for  [the local division, affording a striking  ('demonstration   of  the   resources   and  I great developments of the dry ore belt.  [The total for 1900 was 28<17 tons, while  ftlibse of 1901 to date amount to  2S97  (.tons, being a gain of 32 tons.    But the  end is not yet and the outlook is favorable for a .continuation of heavy shipments.     At   the   Arlington   two   more  teams have been added to the hauling  force and exports havo been raised to  80 tons "weekly.   Two teams are hauling  from the'Enterprise, tho shipments being 40 tons per week instead of a month.  For the week 106 tons were shipped, SO  tons  from  the, Arlington, 20  from  the  Enterprise,.,and  6  from  the Hampton.  A second car is  now ready to go  out  from the'Enterprise, and ore. is comin**;  in from  the Black  Prince,  which  will  make a 30-ton shipment.   Tlie ore-from  the Hampton was divided between the  Nelson  and Trail  smelters  and  is the  first sent out by this  mine this year.  It is very high grade and is expected to  equal last year's returns of G!)0 ounces  per ton.  "Last year the exports from this division amounted to 2847 tons, made up  from 10 properties."

He is the kind of a  man who would send out a report like that.  Jjiist February I wanted to arrest this fellow, and while I was -jetting a warrant  he got away and went to Seattle. In a few  days I got a telegram from there saying,  'Do you want Downey? He is in Seattle.'  Downey sent that telegram, but he'signed  a fictitious name. .Later he came back to  Spokane and I caught him in the Pioneer  block and arrested him as a disorderly  person. This fellow Downey has not dono  any honest work for live years that 1 know  of." Downey is a bad man,", said sergi-nal  Sullivan. "There is now a $75 fine hanging  over him'TWhich was imposed last March,  he being convicted of being a disorderly  person. The fine was suspended upon his  promise to leave town. About a week ago  he clandestinely returned and kept himself in hiding. The girl, Violet Burton,carried his meals to him in the block where  he was stopping. Tesday morning the two  quarreled and he beat her. She reported to the police and Downey prepared  to get out of town again, she having repented and told him that the police were  after him. Downey is not the man's right  name." 7 (  It is supposed Downey went to Moscow  and gave out the report at Colfax as he  was passing .through.���Spokesman-Review.  Is  sold, everywhere.   Ironbrew.
