C, WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 7, 1901  FIVE CENTS  THE PROPHETIC ADVENTISTS  CAN FIND A BIBLICAL CAUSE FOR  EARTHLY EFFECTS.  Elder Young Has His Own Socialistic  Theories and Will Expound Them  in a Lecture Course.  Elder "WV C. Young, one of the Seventh  Day Adventists who have recently arrived in this city, last evening opened  a. series of lectures which he..proposes  to give each evening, dealing with the  1 relative positions of capital and labor.  The Seventh Day Adventists are a prophetic people in that they profess to  see in everything which is transpiring in  the world.at the present time the fulfill-'  ment of the prophecy of the Bible. In  the course of his lectures Mr. Young  Avill trace out the relationship of present day occurrences Avith the prophecies, especially with respect to the  amassing of riches by the few and'the  manner in which they are got together,  and in the end will attempt to demonstrate the final triumph of the Bible  socialism. ...-.  The Seventh Day "Adventists are an  offshoot of the Millerites, Avho in 1SS-1  attracted considerable attention by reason of their very pronounced views on  the second coming of Christ. Thoy Avent  so far as to set the day and hour for  the coming, and so filled were they with  the conviction that they Owcro on the  right track that they shoAved an absolute disregard for their worldly possessions and considered the easiest method  of dispossessing themselves of them the  best, to the end "that they might ho unhampered in tlfeir attendance upon tlie  vast reception committee which they  had drafted to receive the Saviour. It  is almost needless to remark that the  guest of the day did not appear, and in  consequence of their great disappoint-  , ment, and the trifling annoyance attendant upon the property loss, Avhich, in  tho event of the world continuing to do  business at the old stand, took on an.  added importance, it became necessary'  to revise the faith.  The evolution of thc-Sevonth Day Ad-  A-cntists  was the result.    They  do not  stani\ l'or the mistake which the Miller-  itcs made in the reading of the prophecies.    They believe with them that the  falling of the stars in 1S33 marked the  near  approach   of  the   second   coming,  but there are other things Avhich have  yet to happen, and in any event they do  not propose to make Uio mistake of setting    any    dates.    This    indefmiteness  robbed the sect of much of its claim for  public interest, but it avoided all possibility of. embarrassing conditions.    Another  change  which  may  be  noted  is  that  the  Adventists   of   thev day   have  not the  same  disregard  for  the'usual  forms of'worldly riches.   They consider  that in this respect the Millerites Avere..  more or less fanatical, as it is an excellent  thing  to   bo  possessed   of  that  Avhich can be of assistance to those in  Avant.   Another departure in tlieir teachings from that of the Millerites, which  probably is in the nature of a growth  more than a departure, is in their teach-  " ings for the care of the body.   The body  they contend, is the temple of the soul,  =and=foi-this=reasoii=the=A'ei*-y;=best=of=carG^  should bo taken of it.    This branch of  their teaching has led to the establishment of sanitariums all over the United  States.    The largest of these has been  established  at Battle Creek,  Michigan.  ���  and from a small beginning has steadily  grown until at present it furnishes employment to no less  than SOO persons.  The  preparation  of  cereal  food  stuffs  has also received a great deal of attention, in view of the fact that the Adventists are Avholly vegetarian in their diet,  and in this respect at least' their researches   have   had   a  very  widespread  effect upon the people of the entire continent, many of the food  stuffs  which  at present are now in daily use on tho  tables of the people of Canada and the  "United   States   having   been   originally  introduced   in   the   manufactories   conducted by the Adventists.  Perhaps the chief-'point of difference''  betAveen the Adventists and the orthodox Christian churches is that the Adventists do not accept hell and eternal  punishment, which at one time Avas the  chief horror raiser at the church revival  meetings. This they contend is contrary to reason, and they claim to base  all their teachings on reason. They  have a theory peculiarly their own Avith  respect to the hereafter, but those who  are interested in it had better take in  the meetings and receive it first hand  -���from elder .Young.

TROUBLE AT PHOENIX  DIED IN A PAINLESS SLEEP  LAST  HOURS OF  THE  DOWAGER  EMPRESS FREDERICK.  Preparations Making at Cronberg for  the Obsequies���German Journals  Comment on Her Death.  BUT INSTEAD, RECOBD-BP.EAKING  SHIPMENTS OP ORE MADE.  Three Train Loads a Dny, Aggregating  . Ono Thousand Tons, Are BeiDg  Hauled to the Smelter.  Yesterday's Rossland Miner had a long  cock-and-bull story regarding a reputed  disagreement betAveen the miners' union  at Phoenix and the superintendent of  the Old Ironsides and ��vriob Hill mines.  The sole aim of the Miner appears to be  to stir up trouble betAveen miner and  mine owner. The Rossland Miner's  owner happens to be the manager of a  mining company that is Avaging a Avar  of extermination, against unions,' and no  stone is to be left unturned to bring  about discord iri every camp in Kootenay  and Yale. It angers the manager of,  tho Le Roi to see other mirie'managers  getting along amicably with their employees, and no doubt it hurts his feel-:  ings Avhen he reads reports of ore shipments from single mines that far surpass in.A'olume any record he has been  able to make from the Le Roi. That  there is no trouble at Phoenix is evidenced by the folloAving Avired The Tribune by W. B. Willcox, editor of the  Phoenix Pioneer. On the contrary, Mr.  Willcox's telegram goes to shOAV that  the mines at Phoenix are shipping more  ore than ever before:  PHOENIX, August G.���The mines of  this camp are now shipping at the rate  of over 1000 tons of ore per day. Every  24 hours three trains: of 12 cars each,  the cars each holding an average of 30  tons, are sent out to the Granby smelter  at Grand Forks. The ore comes from  the Old Ironsides, Knob Hill,-and Victoria mines.- The three-train rate is  expected to prevail till the two additional furnaces hoav building at the  ^smeltei*���areJ-lownJn,_Avlien four^raing^  daily will be shipped.

Brown, president of tho Sunset  Copper Company, owning the Sunset mine  on Copper mountain, Simill'omeen district,  denies the report that ho is connected with  any extensive proposition near Copper  mountain.  The freight receipts at the Grand Forks  depot last week amounted to over $13,000.  This showing is tangible evidence of the  prosperity of the Boundary country.  Protest Against Discrimination.  WASHINGTON, August 6.���Complaint  Avas instituted today before the interstate commerce commission by tho National Hay Association against the Lake  Shore and Michigan Southern railway  and 29 other roads doing business in  the eastern section of the country, alleging unlawful discriminations against  hay and straw. It is alleged that commodity rates are given to Canadian hay,  -working a discrimination against ihe  domestic product.  .Union and Non-Union Men Clash.

Great heat prevails at Ashcroft and  Kamloops, varying from 110 to 120 degrees  Sunday.  The steamer Victorian arived Sunday to  load cattle for Skagway. Tho steam pipe  broke and she left at noon for Seattle for  repairs.  There is a report here that Ames Holden  will remove his headquarters from Victoria to Vancouver.  The salmon run last night was phenomenal, as many us a thousand being taken  in one boat.  A special edition, of the Reichsanzie-  gei- published this morning contains an  imperial cabinet order giving notice of  the death of empress Frederick and ordering six weeks' national mourning beginning today. The order also directs  that the public amusements, including  concerts and theaters, be suspended until after the funeral. According to dispatches from Cronberg, the death agony  of the doAvager empress Avas brief, lasting hardly a quarter of an hour. When  professor Renvers informed emperor.  William that his mother's heart had  ceased to beat the chaplain made a brief  prayer and his majesty placed Avhite  lillies in his mother's hands. Telegrams  are pouring in from all quarters. The  heads of the foreign states and the sovereigns of the German states have sent  messages of condolence couched in the  Avarmest terms.  COWES, August 6.���The time of king  Edward's departure for Germany is still  undetermined. He goes to London this  afternoon. ��� The royal yacht Victoria  and Albert aAvaits his arrival at Port  Victoria to convey his majesty to Flushing.  CRONBERG, August 6.���The body of  the doAvager empress still lies in the bed  chamber overlooking the valley of the  Main. She died in a soft sleep, painlessly, and her features bear the most  serene and peaceful- expression. The  gardeners,and .outdoor dependents Avere  admitted to vieAV the remains this morning. ,t .:   :  BERLIN, August 6.���The papers comment on the political side of the doAva-  ger empress' character Avith reserve. The  Post considers it easily comprehensible  that;a woman of her ability should seek  to influence the political. vieAvs of her  husband-:.,but the,_paper refrains from  criticisingvsince she avoided all political  activity after emperor Frederick's death.  The Kruetz���>��� Zeitung. ignores her politics.  The : Neuste-Nachrichten says she  brought from England political. vieAvs  Avhich Avere "suitable in a highly developed, solidly foundationed country like  England, but Avhich Avere out of place  in a country like Prussia, struggling for  existence." The Deutsche Tages Zeitung says: "It would be unseemly and  repugnant to our sentiments to recall  the struggles into which she was  draAvn." The Liberal papers describe  the hopes Germany indulged in through  tier, and emperor Frederick in English  constitutional vieAvs.  BERLIN, August 6.���It is asserted in  Berlin tonight that king Edward will  probably not go "to Homberg or Cronberg, but Avill proceed direct to Potsdam to Avait there the arrival of the  body.  CRONBERG, August 6,���In accordance Avith the expressed Avishes of the  deceased the funeral services Avill be  as simple as possible under the circum-  =stanceSi=-The=body=will=remain=on=the-  bed where she died until ready for the  coffin. The roses in Avhich it is almost  buried are from her private garden,  many of the bushes being cultivated  with her own hands. Emperor William  had a long intervieAV with count von  BuelOAV today. He drove from Homberg  to Freidrichschoff and soon after his  arrival the folloAving official announcement regarding the funeral arrangements Avas made: "On Thursday the  royal family Avill attend the funeral services in the castle, at Avhich the bishop  of Ripon, Avho Avas summoned by the  empress, will officiate. Only the immediate family will be present. Saturday  evening the coffin will be escorted from  Freiderischoff to the Protestant church  in Cronberg by a torchlight procession  folloAved by the royal family on foot.  Sunday afternoon a funeral service Avill  bo held in the presence of the family  of the empress, her household, her  friends and other privileged persons."  It is expected here that king.Edward  Avill be present- The royal family-will  go to Potsdam Sunday evening and the  body Avill be taken there Monday evening. The funeral service in the'mausoleum at Freidensriche, Potsdam, Avill  be held Tuesday. As it Avas the empress' Avish that there should be no state  ceremony the service will not be attended by all the German royal personages. It Avill be as simple as possible.  Emperor William has received a telegram of sympathy from the pope.  kin Avill probably be 1S00 men and that  an additional force of 30,000 men would  ho distributed at different points along  the routes along tho sea. The secretary  regarded the Anglo-German and the Anglo-Russian agreements as satisfactory  and as tending to the maintenance of  China's territorial integrity.  Von Waldersee's Reception.  BERLIN, August C���The steamer Ce-  rea Avith fleld marshal count von Waldersee on board has arrived off Heliogoland.  Count von Waldersee's reception at  Hamburg will be very simple in couse-  quence of the death of the dowager empress. All the pre-arranged festivities  have been declared off.* Avith the exception- of the military reception at the  pier and the municipal:reception at the  city hall. The municipal banquet will  ; be omitted.       . ".  Nicaraguan Canal.  LO-NDON, August G.���Commenting upon  the ' interview with lord-Pauncefote, the  British ambassador to the United States,  published in the United States July lSth,  in which Pauncefote expressed the belief  that a Nicaraugan canal treaty between  Great Britain and the United States Avould  be signed. Today voices the feeling that  so long as the free use of the canal can be  given to all nations, it cannot be seen why  Great Britain's interests is to demand  more. "Treaties are not eternal," says Today, and the Clayton-Bulwer treaty was  negotiated at a time and under circumstances very different from today. "It is  easy enough to understand why Germany  and other continental powers are doing  their best to prevent England from giving  way, but it is much less easy lo see why  England should play into the hands of the  continental powers by opposing the United  States."

An arrangement has been arrived at  betAveen the shareholders of the Venus  Gold Mining Company Avhereby it may  be possible to bring about an amalgamation of the Athabasca and Venus companies.   This, it is said, is the outcome  of the bond, which the Athabasca company had upon the Venus property, to  purchase at $150,000.    This proposition  has been referred to the Toronto shareholders in the Athabasca, and if they  approve of it the amalgamation of the  two companies will folloAV.   In this event  a neAV company Avill be formed with a  capital  of  $2,000,000.    Of  this   amount  the   Athtbasca   company   Avill   receive  stock to the amount of $970,000, and the  Venus company stock to the amount of  $570,000.    It  is   also  expected   that  an  arrangement will be arrived at for the  inclusion   of   the   Exchequer   company.  The  Athabasca  company   already   has  some hold upon the Exchequer company's property by Avhich it can acquire  the Exchequer company's assets in return for a certain amount of Athabasca  stock,   but  the   Athabasca   stock    has  fallen so much in value since this arrangement  Avas   entered  into  that  the  Exchequer   company  Avill  be  given  an  opportunity to retire from the arrangement if the officers of the company so  desire.    It is considered, however, that  the inclusion of the Exchequer with the  Athabasca   and   Venus   Avould   make   a  very  strong  company,  and   if the Exchequer company Avill come in under the  neAV arrangement it is proposed to issue  to it stock in the new company to the  amount of $100,000.  Should the amalgamation of the Athabasca and Venus companies, be brought  about under the terms abovo suggested  an assessment of fh'o cents per share  Avill be levied on the stock issued to  the present holders of Athabasca for the  purpose of paying off the debts of the  Venus and present Athabasca companies  and also to meet the expenses in connection with the building of a trannvay  to connect the Venus property Avith the  Athabasca mill as Avell as for necessary  development on both the Venus and  Athabasca. The neAV company Avill be  a Canadian company, with head offices  in Toronto, instead of in London, as is  the case at present Avith the Athabasca.  There is said to be sufficient ore at present blocked out in the Venus to keep  the Athabasca company's mill running  at its full capacity for two years. The  Venus ore is hot so high grade as that  of the Athabasca, but the Venus ledge  is much more regular than that of the  Athabasca and it can be Avorked much  cheaper. The general opinion is that  the arrangement noAV submitted to the  Toronto men Avill be acceptable and that  the first steps in the matter of the  amalsamation^AvilI_be_tak_cn_wUhi_n_a^  week.  direction of the ore body as well as its  width and distance from the surface.

It  is to be hoped that Angus will realize his  dream, and by this means discover on the  Neepawa the greatest ore body on Ten-  mile, but is should be rememb**red that  the finding of ore on the Neepawa would  not establish the merit of the process,  nor would failure to find tho ore demonstrate that the scheme is a fake, because  A'ery much in either event would depend  upon the Neepawa itself.

It is  supposed that the thieves took their  plunder away by boat. The Selby smelter is the largest on the Pacific coast.  Ores are sent there, from all parts of  -the -western slope for reduction. The  Avorks are located near the bay shore  about 30 miles from San Francisco, and  through the clever device of tunneling through the loose sand the robbers  secured a princely sum, the loss of  Avhich was not discovered nutil after the  works resumed operations today.  .VALLEJO, Cal., August G.���Gold  bricks valued at $340,000 were stolen during the night from the Selby Smelting  Works.

It Avas  7 o'clock this morning before tho firemen, after working hard all night, had  the smoldering ruins sufficiently cooled  off to enable them to begin a search for  the  bodies  whicli  are  supposed   to  be  beneath the wrecked buildings.   At 1010 '  Locust street M.   Rosenthal,  Avife and -  five children lived.    They escaped Avith  broken  limbs  and -contusions,  but the  building  Avas   completely   Avrecked.     In  the   Rosenthal    home    Avas   a   boarder  named Frank Schmidt.    He Avas seated  at a thii'd story window Avhen the ex-  f plosion  occurred.    Schmidt AA'as  blown *.,  'through  the Avindow and  landed upon  the top cl  a stable 40 feet from'the  Avrecked  bull din-*.    He escaped  Avith a  few   bruises.     Forty-eight   persons   allJ. i  told wero taken to the hospital.   Of this  number  six   are    probably   fatally    injured.    Twenty-eight are suffering from  fractured limbs and burns, while the injuries   of  the  others   consist  of  slight  cuts from flying debris.    The scene at  the   Avreck   and   at   the   hospitals   this  morning is sickening.   Persons who had  relatives and friends living in the Avrecked structures are standing about Aveep-  ing and almost distracted, hoping that  ���their  loved  ones  may  have  escaped  a  .  terrible death, but fearful of the worst  The property loss will amount to about  $75,000, on which there is small insurance. &  PHILADELPHIA, August 6, 9:30 p. *  m.���Seven dead, three or four probably  fatally injured and more than CO other  persons, hurt more or loss seriously is  the revised record of last night's explosion in the block of buildings on Locust  street above Tenth in tliis city. Hoav  many more victims, if any, are still in  the ruins will not be knoAvn until all  the debris has been cleared aAvay. The.  latest find was made at S o'clock tonight.  The badly burned remains of a colored  man were found in the debris on the  sidcAvalk.  T"?r\  reported to his fellows that he heard  a noise in the strong room and declared  it Avas a ghost. The others ridiculed him  for his superstition, but no investigation  Avas made to sec Avhat caused the noise.  The entrance of the tunnel Avas covered with a frame, over Avhich the employes of the smelter passed repeatedly  every day, but no one seemed to notice  anything out of the Avay.  Sheriff "Vealo of Contra Costa county  and chief of police Sanford of Vallejo  have been notified and are now at the  works." The police of San Francisco arc  at work on the case, but so far there  is not the slightest cl.,-, to the robbers.  The work was that of skilled men and  their elaborate plans were carried out  without a hitch. They got all the bullion in tho vault, leaving behind only  the two bricks which dropped on the  shore. Only one day's accumulation of  refined gold was kept at the works. Yesterday's run was unusually heavy and  the gold was to have been shipped back  to San Francisco today.  The tunnel that the robbers excavated  was about three feet in diameter and  gave them plenty of room in which to  Avork.  It is supposed that the dirt from the  tunnel was taken out at night and  dropped into the bay. First reports  stated that the tunnel was tAvo or three  hundred feet long, but according to late  advices it was about 10 feet in length.  The shaft Avas started close to the wall  and was sunk below the foundation,  thence it was only a short distance  under the floor of the vault. It is thought  the men Avho committed the robbery  took their plunder in a launch and made  off for San Francisco. Following is a  list of the property stolen: Four fine  gold bricks, all numbered, and containing 6750 ounces; also 10,000 ounces of  gold in various shapes and a little silver. The gold in the bricks is worth  $20 an ounce.  Competition in Wine  SAN FRANCISCO, August C���Representatives of California viticuHural interests have learned that French exporters propose to enter into active competition with the wine makers of this state.  ~Itris~ltsserted_t!TaF~in tlTe~~Perfgord dis- '  trict of France the crop of grapes has  been so enormous that Avine has fallen  to less than one cent a gallon. The  French groAvers. according to the Chronicle, do not intend shipping Avine to this  country, oAVing to the tariff, but they  propose to send over condensed must.  Til's is unformed juice of the grape,  wli'ch can be quickly converted into a  fair wine by the addition of Avater. The  duty on must is only 20 per cent ad ,  valorem, it coming under the head of  "unr-numcratcd articles" in the tariff  schedules. Tho wine Interests of California will af once take steps to have  the omission of must from the tariff rectified by congress. |   ji  Fatal Election Disturbances.

August 0.���An order issued by the head of the Chinese Reform  Association, with headquarters at San  Francisco, calls upon all Chinamen in  this country to remove their queqnes.  The order roads as follows, according to  the Tribune- "All good Chinamen who  are interested in tho cause of reform,  and who desire to better their condition and that of their native land, and  to improve their positions in the land of  their adoption, will at once proceed to  cut off their queques." It is said that  upon the members of the Association it  Avill be more binding than an imperal  edict from the hand of the emperor of  China. It wil affect several hundred  Chinese in this city although as yet no  branch of the association has been formed'here. In California the association  has G000 members.  Steel Workers' Strike.

But The Tribune  does knoAV that the members of the  miners' unions in British Columbia are  just as law-abiding and just as good citizens as are the men who employ them,  and Avhen Bernard McDonald's personal  organ, the Rossland Miner, attempts to  - blacken their reputation by reprinting  column after column of a report that  the governor of Idaho made to the secretaiy of Avar, he is not acting the part  .of a good citizen.    The people of Brit-  ���ish Columbia will judge miners' unions  ,'hy their actions in British Columbia. So  far, they have been laAV-abiding organisations; and Bernard McDonald's news-  .paper is no more justified in beginning  r,a campaign, of  detraction  against the*  -��-minors and miners' unions of this prov-  , ince than it has to commence such a  ; campaign against the printers and print-  - ers' unions of British Columbia." Bcr-  .'-nard McDonald has been credited Avith  -,- -having brains, but he has evidently been  ?, overrated,   for   no  man  Avith   ordinary  "common sense Avould willfully slander  ���a class of men AVithout AA'hose aid min-  'ing could not be made a profitable industry.  The Portland Oregonian, a newspaper  -'that cannot be classed as an organ of  - trades unionism, has the folloAving to  say editorially regarding the injunctions  recently issued by judge Hanford of  Washington and judge Gager of Connecticut: "Under this rule a striker  *: could not talk with another workman  ���'at any place or time Avith a purpose  "to convert him to the strikers' cause,  "under penalty of being5 punished for  '"contempt of court. If this injunction  " will hold water as the law of the  "land, why, then, the judge can forbid  '"the holding of n'ublic meetings by  "the strikers and the delivering of ad-  " dresses designed to influence non-  " union workmen, and prohibit the  "printing of reports of such meetings  '��� in the newspapers. This Connecticut  __!!_injunction_is_a_direct=bloAV=at=free,  " speech, the right of public assemblage  " and the freedom of the press since, all  " these things are in danger by logical  " extension of the doctrine of contempt  " of court set forth in judge Gager's in-  " junction. What labor asks at the  " hands of capital is not the beneficence  " that is dictated by self-interest but  " simple justice." ��  Great in Character.  Admirers of lord Roberts had perhaps  more reason than the Irish members to  object to the phrases in hon, A. J. Balfour's speech,  Avhich likened the commander-in-chief to John Churchill, duke  of Marlborough.    Irish jealousy for the  fame of Marlborough is a neAV development.   There are two sides to the question whether Roberts or Churchill was  the greater soldier.    The  military genius of Roberts might liaA'o been equal  to all the triumphs of Marlborough, and  the character of Marlborough would not  have enabled him to win the triumphs  Avhich adorn the fame of lord Roberts.  Roberts might not have been equal to  the  opportunities   Avhich   Marlborough  improved on the continent but it is far  from   certain   Marlborough   could   haA'e  brought  order   out  of  chaos   in  South  Africa.   The great duke Avould have had  to develop an honesty Avhich he never  displayed in life or he would have trucked and traded in the supplies and pay  for the army in South Africa Avhile his  men were starving.    The steady flame  of lord Roberts' greatness needs to borrow no glory from the corrupt genius  of John Churchill, duke of Marlborough.  ���Toronto Telegram.

Will Bar Foreigners  The imperial German government in  response to pressure from academical  quarters is about to take steps to restrict the access of foreign students to  German universities. At the present  moment there are 3000 foreigners on the  books of German universities, Berlin  heading the list with more than 900. Of  the 3000 there are about 500 Americans.  These figures do not include foreigners  studying at the technical high schools  of Germany. The German government  takes the ground that a disproportionate  share of the limited accommodations  of the laboratories of the universities  and technical high schools is given to  foreigners to the detriment of the native students for Avhom these institutions Avere primarily intended. All the  universities are state supported, -and it  is considered unfair that German taxpayers should provide for the education  of foreigners, whose instruction thus ob- ���  tained brings no return to the German  empire, since it is carried abroad. The  German government, therefore, plans  measures of a very radical character to  restrict, if not to stop entirely, the admission of foreigners to German univer-  sitiesand high schools, a laAv Avhich cannot fail to create a sensation in the  United States, where there are so many  men' of science avIio have received their  education in Germany.

"Colonel Jack" Egai., an old-time Pacific   Coast   printer-journalist,   has   as-  ''''*.; sumed  editorial  charge of the  Nelson  \   Miner.   In the early days "Colonel Jack"  was a compositor on the Virginia (Ne-  ; vada)   Enterprise, and  afterwards was  a reporter on the San Francisco Examiner.    When Nathan Cole, jr.,  started  the Portland  (Oregon)  News to knock  the Oregonian  out,  he hired  Egan as  -managing editor.    From  the News he  went to the Seattle Telegraph as city  editor, and from Seattle came to Rossland, where he was city editor of the  ���  ,Miner until Bernard McDonald became  .   its owner.   Egan is well versed in mining lore and knows what news is.   He  has been so long in the business, and  experienced   so  many  of  its  ups   and  I downs, that he is a cosmopolitan.   The  Miner has been so long in the hands of  men who were not cosmopolitan and not  newspapermen,  that a change in that  journal should he noticeable from this  time on.   ;A conflict that may not be as serious  as was the one that began in 1SG1 is  surely coming in the United States.

Apropos of the approaching court-martial   of  admiral   Schley   the   following  Ipoints to be touched upon will be of interest.   Schley's defense will be:  First���That the delay before Cienfue-  feos was caused by the failure of Sampson to provide Schley with certain signal codes.  Second-���That  the movement toward  Key West for coal was made after the  liblest   scouts   of   the   navy   informed  |5chley that the Spanish fleet had  not  ���een seen to enter the harbor of-Santiago; and that weather conditions made  advisable to coal in port.  Third���That the resuts of the battle  jiliow the loop to have been courageous,  jlirewd and effective.  * CHIEF WITNESS SCHLEY.  First���The alleged delay at Cienfue-  3s, Cuba:  "My orders from rear admiral Samp-  ton of May 19th were to blockade Cien-  aiegos. Tbis 1 proceeded to do imme-  (.iately.  ."I was on the spot acting under orders  t*hich   gave  me   entire  discretion   and  Ict clothed me with the responsibility  f going .to Santiago only after I was  atisfied that the Spanish licet was not  t Cienfuegos."  , Second���The alleged slow progress toward Santiago de Cuba.  "The secretary assumes that I was in  liult for allowing the Eagle, which was  If small importance as a fighting, force  |ompared with the rest of the force, to  Dduce materially tho speed of the  |quadron.  "She was a part of the force which  jflmiral Sampson had thought proper to  *nd me, together with the Iowa and the  (ci-Iier Merrimac.    If I had known that  he Spanish lleet was in the latter port  trust it is not necessary for me to assure anyone that no consideration of the  ^.agle or anything else would have pre-  ���ented   me   from   getting there  tit   the  1 earliest possible moment with the larger  f-essels; but the weather and sea and  the slow-moving vessels made it impossible to do better than 1 did."  Third���The retrograde movements of  rjMay 26th and 27th:  "Acting in accordance with my best  J judgment, in view of the circumstances,  I.without any certain  knowledge of the  [^hereabouts of the Spanish fleet; after  '-'having been informed  by the  'scouts,'  commanded by such oflicers as Sigsbee,  .Jewell   and   Wise,   that  although   they  'had all been off Santiago de Cuba for a  Iweek they had seen nothing of it and  fknew nothing of its movements or its  fwhereabouts since it had left Curacao;  fafter  having  been  assured   by  Sigsbee  Ithat he did not believe it Avas in San-;  tiago, and by the emphatic declaration-  *>f pilot Nunez, and knowing that,  as  Jthe sea and weather were then, it would  lie impossible to coal any squadron off  [the port, I deemed it best to take the  iction I did, the final result of which  Kvas the location of the enemy's fleet in  Ithe Santiago harbor."  r'=Eour-th���The=battle-of-=Santiago=anct  fche destruction of Cervera's fleet:  "The facts of that contest speak for  themselves."  This will be the arraignme.nt by ad-  liral Sampson:  First���That   Schley   negligently   de-  Iayed the progress of the flying squadron  rom Cienfuegos to Santiago.  Second���That   Schley   turned   away  I rom Santiago under the excuse of need-  ng coal for the squadron, without hav-  lg ascertained that the Spanish fleet  vas not in the harbor of Santiago; that  [his movement, halted in its incipiency,  ras in disobedience of orders.  Third���That Schley made a cowardly  Dop in the face of the enemy with his  (agship Brooklyn during the battle of  mtiago.  CHIEF WITNESS SAMPSON.  As outlining his possible testimony,  tdmiral Sampson has said of the Maclay  listory, in which admiral Schley is call-  Id "caitiff," "coward" and "incompe-  l-nt":  "In one way, possibly, I was responsi-  Ile for. the statements made in the his-  >ry.   I was commander-in-chief of the  liiadron, and was responsible, so far as  rading the proof goes.   If the historian  is taken facts from my official reports  the navy department that is all well  ad good.   I stand by first reports and  llicial  communications.    Schley's  first  itement regarding the battle of San-  igo    was    moderately    correct.  . The  Jterviews given out some time after-  ird were not at all correct.   They were  I.tirely different from his first accounts,  id were written in a different spirit, I  ink."  The first complaint admiral Sampson  ide was  of date of July 10,  1898,  a  feel,  after  the  naval   engagement  at  jntiago.    Admiral Sampson telegraph-  the secretary of the navy as follows:  ["With regard to commodore Schley, I  iich prefer that the department should  side his case.   I am unwilling to fully  (press my own opinion.    His conduct  ion he first assumed command on the  ith coast of Cuba I assumed to be as  l?ll  known to  the  department as  to  /���self.    Had the commodore left his  Iition  off   Santiago  de   Cuba  at  that  le he probably would have been court-  Jirtialed.   Were I alone in this opinion  Ivould certainly doubt my judgment,  Jt as far as I  know this  opinion is  lfirmed by the say of other command-  ; oflicers here acquainted with the cir  cumstances. This reprehensible conduct I cannot separate from his subsequent conduct, and for this reason I  ask you to do him ample justice on this  occasion. All was wrong with Schley,  from the first moment he had anything  to:do with tlie naval engagement that  ended-in the annihilation of the Spanish fleet off Santiago. Misunderstanding there never was, and never could  have been."  ; Here follows the 'attack made by historian Maclay, which caused the admiral  to demand an investigation:  "In his report about the coal supply  of the vessels under his command, Schley  exhibited either a timidity " amounting  to absolute cowardice or a prevarication  of facts that were intrinsically falsehoods. Schley r turned in caifi.1 flight  from the danger spot toward which  duty, honor and the whole American  people were most earnestly urging him.  Viewed in whatever light it may be, the  foregoing dispatch cannot be characterized otherwise than as being without  exception the most humiliating, cowardly and lamentable report ever penned  by an American naval officer."  As to the reconnoissance at Santiago:  "This timid and nerveless attack on  Cervera's ships is the more disappointing when we remember the elaborate  and brave preparations Schley had made  to get at the enemy in earnest. Schley's  farcical blockade cannot; be described  otherwise than as willful disobedience  of orders."  As to the loop of the Brooklyn:  "Schley hastily ordered his helm aport.  'But that will carry us,into the Texas,'  said the officer. /Let the Texas take care  of herself,' was 'the heartless reply, and  the shameful spectacle1 of an American  ���'warship, supported by'a force superior  to the enemy's���a warship whose commander had expended such vast quantities of ammunition on target practice  in the presence of a fashionable hotel  at Hampton Roads, in order to meet a  worthy foe���-deliberately turning tail  and running away, was presented." ,  "Cervera nobly threw down the gauntlet.   Schley cravenly declined to pick it  up." - '-         WHAT CERVERA THINKS.  "Actions speak. The good-old proverb is:.! 'Actions speak louder than  words.' Why not apply it to admiral  Schley. Understand that what I say is  in light of this distinction. As a Spaniard I look upon that war as being as  unjust as the war which England is;  no*,y waging against the Boer republics.  Personally, I shall never forget the generous and courteous treatment that was'  accorded to me by the Americans, and  particularly by admiral Schley. He impressed me as a gallant officer and a  high-minded gentleman to the fullest  sense of the phrase. A priori, I should  say that a man of noble principles and  general impulses cannot be a coward.  To such men I would look rather for  Castilian bravery. The naval battle of  Santiago was short and decisive-r60  short that there was ho time for any  exchange of compliments; so decisive  that I can hardly believe that cowardice  was thinkable. The fight was over in  about three hours and three-quarters.  Had  I  been  captured  in  the_days  qf_  Nelson Branch���Burns Block, 221 Baker  Street.  J. M. LAY, Manager.  blockading position, was within range  of our ships and batteries all the time,  though our ships lacked certain things  necessary for full effectiveness. Admiral  Schley showed ability and thoroughness.  It is a case of demonstrated valor  against possible bravery. It is a case  of the difference between the act and  the possibility, or, as the old -philosophers used to say, between the esse and  the posse. The^ philosophical axiom  which -I learned in my schooldays,  namely, 'A posse ad' actum non valet  consecutio,' ('To be able to do a thing  is not the same as doing it') probably  applies to this case. I don't know admiral Sampson and I have no comment  to make upon him. Your ships .went  straight to work, probably without much  commanding. Admiral Schley accomplished fully the work allotted to him,  and, therefore, it does not seem to me  that there is any room for adverse criticism���at least, from the American side."  to  9\  to  to  Established in Nelson 1890.

Admiral  Schley treated me on. terms of absolute  equality. His flagship, the Brooklyn,  was west in the blockading line, and  was therefore the most exposed. She  was engaged in a running fight with  the Viscaya and the Colon. When the  Brooklyn and the Oregon got within  range of the Colon they opened fire, and  the latter was compelled to run ashore.  The Christobal Colon also struck her  colors to the Brooklyn and the Oregon.  The   Brooklyn,  holding the   westward  Astor Wants Battle Abbey. ',.;   ,  "William Waldorf At>;.or is negotiating  with thes executors of the late duchess  of  Cleveland,  and   with  her  principal,  heir, captain Forrester/for the purchase  of Battle Abbey, her historic home in  Sussex, which was built by William the  Conqueror and endowed as a monastery  for the purpose of  having its monks  offer up prayers for the souls of those  who fell in the battle of Hastings in,the  year 1066.   William Waldorf Astor has  had his eye on Battle Abbey ever since  the memorable answer given to him by  the old duchess of- Cleveland, when at  the inauguration of his, magnificent .offices in London he-called upon her to  admire the beauty, of his great black  marble staircase.   "Yes," exclaimed the  old duchess, "it is-much finer and better looking than my. black marble staircase'at Battle Abbey, where the marble  has all been chipped and/damaged by  the swords, the spurs and the mailed  feet;' of the  Crusaders.",   It was, then  that" Astor  realized  for  the  first1 time  the yalue of .the antique, and from that  time'foftli he has entertained a desire  to possess not only the black marble  staircase at Battle, but. likewise the old  Abbey itself, where is kept the so-called  "roll of Battle Abbey," which bears the  names of all those Norman and Saxon  knights who took part in the battle of  Hastings,   a  roll   which.- is   the   golden  book of the British aristocracy.   The Abbey was  a  monastery  until  the  reign  of Henry VIII. who gave it to one of  his favorites.   The latter was cursed by  the ousted abbot and his family, after  the most extraordinary vicissitudes, became extinct early last century by fire  and water, as predicted by the monk.  Afterward it was purchased by the Webster family, who in turn sold it to the  late duke of Cleveland,  and  now the  Webster  family is endeavoring to  recover possession, competing in the matter with  William   Waldorf Astor, who  has virtually, however, secured the place.

Contractor Olson, who  has this work in hand, is now in 400 feet on  the east end of tho work and work has  been started on the west end in the way of  erecting a'portal. This tunnel was contemplated, when the Crow's Nest line was  under construction, but as it would tako  considerable timo a temporary lino was  built first. The tunnel when built will  shorten the line by halt' a mile and will  effect a considerable saving in timo and  operating expenses.  * .   .  An attempt is being mado to provide for  the moving of the several companies of  the R. M. R. to the Coast In connection  with the visit of tho duke of York. The  sanction of the militia authorities has not  yet been received for the move, but as Lno  desire is general from all the companies it  is thought that the required arrangements  will be made by the militia department.  Thero are still a number of vacancies in  the Nelson company for good men.  * .   .  So far the provincial police have received very little news of the masked men  who held up the poker game al tho Sirdar  Hotel on Sunday night. At tho time the affair occurred there was no police ofllcer  within several miles-of tho scene of the  robbery, as 'ofllcer "Wilson, who is  stationed at Creston, was at that time on  his way homo from New Westminster,  where ho had taken the- prisoner John  Cuba. From such information as tho police have received it is evident that thero  were Ihrce men mixed up in the affair,  although there were but two in evidence  at the time the holdup occurred. jVs Sirdar is but a short distance from the inter-national boundary lino ii. is not unlikely that the men who were mixed up.  in the affair have got safely into the domains of Uncle Sam.

Wlieh"  one innings had been played the man in  charge of the colored team thought that it  was "opportune to pass the hat, but none  of the Nelson men were willing to ofliciate  in airy capacity. Failing this the manager  announced that unless the spectators would  put up something he would take his mon  off the held. This announcement was made  to those in the grand stand. 11 was ac-.  copied in the proper spirit. It was a case  of grafting and the audience to si man resented it, ami il began to silently fade  away until there wore none loft to'witness,  tlie game, when the colored gents awoke  to the fact thnt (heir work was as courso  as their minslrel performance and that the  people would not stand for It,  Grafting Ball Players.  The men who compose the ball team of  the Georgia minstrels disgusted a number  of Nelsorrites yesterday and to an extent  sufilcient to affect the attendance at the  company's performance last evening. The  men who composed this ball teaiii professed  to be very anxious to get a ball game on  yesterday. The Nelson boys were not at  all anxious to play, but in ordor to oblige  tho visitors a rustle was made and a team  was got together. It turned out that, it  was not the game so much as the gate rc-  eeliits that tlie colored gents were after.  The announcement had been made at the  opera house the previous evening that the  game would bo played and a general invitation was extended to all to go and see It.  The Silver Kin/*; Mine ScLool.

At the meeting of the executive of the  Nelson boat club which was held last night  it was decided to hold the next club regatta  on Saturday, September'7th. A considerable portion of the evening was spent in  discussing ways and means in connection  wtih the regatta which is to be held in  Nelson next summer. This will entail a  heavy expenditure upon the local club in  the way pf making the preparations necessary for the accommodation of the visiting oarsmen and an effort will be made to  maintain interest in rowing throughout the  winter by means of entertainments of  various kinds. One of the first expenditures which the club will have to face will  be for the purchase of a shell. This was referred to a. special committee composed  of Messrs. Wragge and Ford.  It was also decided to hold another dance  on Tuesday evening and the arrangements  for tlie same were left In the hands of a  "specilfl committee. composetl__o'f MeTSsTST  Winter, Wragge, Rutherford, ' Bunyan,  Woln-orc and .Ford.
