August 14.���[Special  The Trbune.]���Leo Long and Thomas  irk, well-known Spokane mining men,  ssed through here today en route to  public for the. purpose of inspecting  s Lone Pine-Surprise.  3. Charles, right-of-way agent of the  pat Northern railway, has nearly com-  ���ted his duties in this section.  The members of the International  undary Survey are now engaged east  Cascade.  The plans of the Republic-Marcus  inch of the Great Northern railway  ween here and Phoenix have been  minted to the lands and works de-  ���tmeut for approval. Work cannot  started until the provincial govevn-  nt grants the necessary authority tc  ss crown lands. This permission, it  expected, will be forthcoming shortly,  tarry Donough has returned from  inklin camp, situated on the east  k of the north fork of Kettle river,  nit 45 miles from Grand Forks. He  iressed the belief that the mineral  llth of that section far surpasses any-.  Lig in the Boundary. Speaking to  tr correspondent today he said: "All  ^t Franklin requires is railway translation. The ledges are immense, the  mation is perfect and the values in  cl,coppei* and silver are exceedingly  h. The same applies to Gloucester  1 McKinley camps in the same local-  This season's development work  , shown up the claims better than  tr, while new strikes have been made  ly.

As  in as the lead is followed I have no  ibt high grade pay shutes like the  surface showing will be encountered.  "John Myers has opened up the Banner lead on the Bullion, the adjoining  claim, by means of an eight-foot shaft'.1  Newby, Merchant and Garnet have a  bonanza in tho Gloucester. They have  sunk a 40-foot shaft through solid ore  that would almost stand transportation  by wagon. On Gloucester Creek hill  and Minion by means of a 12-foot surface cross-cut they have opened a rich  copper-gold lead the width of the working."  Mr. Donough did the assessment on  the Surprise, Doctor, Big Three and Annex. He found the contact on the Big  Three and Doctor and opened a promising lead on the Surprise, but its extent cannot be determined without additional work.  Two gangs of men are engaged building the extension of the North Fork  wagon road towards Franklin camp. The  appropriation will it -is believed, be exhausted at a point 15 miles south of  Franklin if reached. It will require  considerable money to build a road  across the Rock Slide, a narraw pathway  half way up tho mountain beyond Lynch  creek. The existing trail is a great  boon and enables'' prospectors to pack  in supplies.  IT IS RICH IN POSSIBILITIES  SMILKAMEEN DISTRICT AND ITS  MINERAL DEPOSITS.  Vancouver's News Quota. ' c  - VANCOUVER, August 14.���[Special to  The Tribune.]���The New Vancouver  Coal Company decided temporarily to  close clown No. 1 and Protection Island  shafts, his action was taken in consequence of lack of shipping; facilities  through the strike at San Francisco.  Notices of the shut down, commencing  .Thursday, were posted on all workings  except No. 5 and Hartwood shafts. Coal  mining is the-only industry in Nanaimo,  a town of 7000 inhabitants, therefore  the shut-down is bad, especially as  mines in the district which support a  population of nearly the same size are  in a similar predicament. The use of  oil in California foreshadows a lessening demand for coal in the future.  ������' The inquest concerning the death,of  Quinn,Tire'boss at No. 3 Extension, has  been postponed one week in order to  further investigate the matter. The  cause of the explosion is still a mystery, but the theory is advanced that  tool thieves, who have stolen a number  of miners' implements of, late, may be  ���responsible. Quinn's body was not badly Jiurhed and the authorities do not  believe the explosion was due to his  carelessness. Government inspector  Morgan is making a thorough inquiry.  The mine is being flooded to extinguish  the fire and several months must elapse  before it en be pumped out and worked again.  Arrangements : are still 'pending for  the sale cf the British Columbian Iron  Works plant to tlie Albion Iron Works  of Victoria. The deal will aggregate  nearly   $100,000.  The new bridge is to cross Fraser  river above Ashcroft for the accommodation of Cariboo people, according to  a statement of hon. W. C. Wells here  today. Chief government engineer Gamble and expert; Wad dell, who is in charge  of the Westminster bridge, left" today  to make an inspection. Mr. Wells said  today that the Great Northern, Canadian Pacific or some other railway  would be given the right-of-way over  the bridge. The Great Northern is expected to build into Vancouver from  South Wetminster on completion.of the  bridge.

Transportation   Facilities   Are   Eadly  Needed���Opinions of Mining Mi n  Who Have Investigated.  Revelstoke Notes.  REVELSTOKE, _August 14.���[Special  to The Tribune.]���Contractor Stewart  is building storehouses two miles west  of Field for a camp on the construction  of the cut-off, seven miles of which is  to be built to avoid the heavy grade  west of Field. Active work will begin the first part of September. It will  require three to five hundred men.  The new C. P. R. hotel at Field is  ready for the plasterers. Tourist business to that point is rushing.  A considerable body of nice looking  copper ore has been struck in Jordan  pass, about 12 miles from town.  Lipton Sails Away  LONDON, August 14.���Sir Thomas  Lipton started for the United States this  morning, leaving a cheering crowd of  accuaintancos and well wishers w'?o  had assembled nt.tbe station to bid him  farewell. His compartment on the train  was half filled with flowers, including  a model of the Shamrock II, the hull  being of manganese bronze from the  trimmings of the plates used on the  Shamrock II. gold plated; the rigging  of gold cords and the sails of woven  flowers. It was the gift of Miss May  Morell. Sir Thomas' party included  Charles Russell, J. B. Holliard and Robert Ure. George L. Watson, the yacht's  designer, will join the party at Liverpool. When the time drew near for the  train to leave the crowd cheered sir  Thomas, sang ".For He Is a Jolly Good  Fellow" and called for a speech. Sir  Thomas thanked those present for their  kind wishes and expressed the hope that  the Shamrock II would fulfill all expectations. "We have dene all on this  side that could be clone," said he, "and  the boat is in the hands of the most  skilled vachtsmen in the United Kingdom. If we fail we shall know we  have been beaten by the genius of high  feeling sportsmen who know more about  the game than we." Sir Thomas stepped  on the moving train amid the outbursts  of cheering.  It is said that the roar of a lion can  be heard further than the sound made  by any other living creature. Next to  that comes the note of a woman who  has found a mouse in her bureau.  PRINCETON, August 13.���[Special to  The Tribune.]���The numerous camps of  tlie Similkameen have recently been undergoing a thorough and painstaking  examination at the hands of a number  of mining men.. The district is a large  one in area and time is required to gain  only an impartial knowledge of the extent of its hiineraL deposits. That it is  rich in gold, silver, copper and lead,  has extensive measures of good coal and  is really an ideal country to mine in is  generally known on the outside. It  is also known that it lacks railway  transportation, which for the moment  serves as its greatest drawback, and is,  therefore, only in its prospective stage.  The government is apparently endeavoring to solve the railway problem by  having the Hope range surveyed for a  feasible pass for the proposed Coast-  Kootenay railway, and it may be stated  here, in advance of the official report,  that a pass will be found. In fact, during the past five years the Hope range  has received consideration in the matter  of preliminary surveys by the Canadian  Pacific railway, the Victoria, Vancouver  & Eastern railway and by D. C. Corbin  of Spokane, and there is today in this  city profile maps of one of the routes  showing" all tho altitudes between the  Coast and the Columbia river. When  a railway is built it will open up one of  the richest sections of the prpvince,  callable of producing an ore tonnage that  will surely satisfy the' most avaricious  railway magnate on the continent.  Regarding its mineral resources the  correspondent of The Tribune interviewed four gentlemen who have been  in the district with a view to obtaining  their opinion. This is what they say:  Speaking of the ore deposits of Copper  mountain, T. J. Vaughan-Rhys, M. E..  of Vancouver said: "My business has  been to examine new localities noted for  their copper showings. I have been all  over the Pacific slope as far" south as  Arizona. Nowhere have I seen such  large surface showings of copper ores  as on Copper mountain. Looking over  the claims on that mountain it struck  me that the time had not arrived' for-  the investment of large capital, but I  am more than satisfied that there is  a splendid opportunity for the middleman to take hold and develop claims  preparatory to turning them over to  larger syndicates. Then it will require  capital to operate them'on a.n extensive  scale, treating the ore locally, in fact,  much the same as the Granby company  is doing in the Boundary district. This  cannot be done until transportation facilities are provided, meanwhile there  is much that the claim owner can do in  exploiting the surface showings in strip-  pings, etc., that will naturally enhance  the value of the properties."  L. L. Patrick, M. E., of Molsoni, Washington, on his return from a week's  visit to Roche Rivor camp had the following to say: "I consider the Roche  ^River'camp'as'liaving'the'richest^quartz1  veins yet found in the district. The  veins are small, measuring from a few  inches up to two and three feet, carrying values in tellurium and copper. With  a smelter here it would pay haudsomely  to pack out the ore a distance of 38  miles. The present trail is one of the  roughest I have ever traveled over in  this province, and until a more easy  access is available into that section  I am afraid capital will hardly venture  there. It is essentially a "poor mail's"  camp and Its location makes it an ideal  one to carry on mining development.  One instance of the richness of the ores  came under my observation. Last winter Hugh Kennedy, who owns the Pa-  sayton claini, packed out 1000 pounds  of ore a distance of 70 miles over the  Hope trail to the railway and sold the  same to a Vancouver metallurgist for  70 cents per pound, netting sufficient to  live on all that winter in comparative  luxury. I was pleased to note also that  this new El Dorado is now the mecca  for the pros'iector as I passed several  outfits en route to the camp."  After a fourth visit to the camps of  the district, James D. Sword, M. E., of  Rossland unhesitatingly stated that for  its area it contained more varieties of  ore than any other section of the province. He said: "I have taken in most  of the camps from Aspen Grove to Kennedy mountain. The Nickel Plate mine,  in i-Iedley camp is the best developed  property. Some of the iron ore���an  arsenical iron or mispickel���is phenomenally rich. While I do not believe the  tonnage of this camp will be as large  as some of-the older camps in the Kootenays and the Boundary, it will, in my  opinion, be of a far higher grade. On  Copper mountain, which, by the way,  has the largest amount of work done  in the aggregate of any camp in the  Similkameen, the ore deposits are all  very similar, being an eruptive rock  highly mineralized with copper pyrites  and, in places, bornite. There is no  question but that they are by far the  largest showings of copper ore in southern British Columbia. On Kennedy  mountain there are also many remarkable exposures of ore of a practically similar character and occurrence. In fact  there is little room for doubt but that  it is  geologically  the  same camp  as  Copper mountain. Taking it altogether,  the Similkameen district is a most promising one with its varieties of ores, its  coal measures, its immense stretches  of grazing and timber lands, and its  water powers. What is needed mostly  is railway transportation. Until a road  is constructed it will be simply impossible to carry on mining development on  any large scale. The salvation, in fact,  of all the country west from Midway to  the Coast is a railway, and no let up  should be made upon the government  until this much-desired undertaking is  accomplished."  Speaking of Copper and Kennedy  mountains, Smith Curtis, M. L. A. for  the Rossland riding, said: "It is safe  ,to say that in no other locality in the  province can be found such extensive  copper deposits as on these two mountains? The ore is generally low grade  and must be mined by companies with  ample capital, owning their own smelters. There is not room in most cases  for both mining and smelting profit in  handling ores. Claini. owners should  recognize this and not ask too much  for their properties or refuse amalgamation with adjoining properties where  the promoters are men of means guaranteeing ample funds for exploitation.  Summit City camp with its silver-lead  properties will, with development,, turn  out some promising mines. 'The trail  to this camp is simply a disgrace and  one ceases to wonder at the lack of development when they make the trip  into that camp and surmount the many  difficulties encountered in getting there.  I believe the Similkameen is destined  to become one of the greatest mining  sections of the province whenever it is  afforded railway facilities' and adequate  roads, trails and bridges to-the different mining camps," he concluded.  MET DEATH IN A TUNNEL  WOODWORK   CAUGHT  FIRE AND  PREVENTED ESCAPE.  BOTH SIDES  MAKE GAINS  CONDITION OF THE GREAT STEEL  STRIKE YESTERDAY.  Sixty-five Thousand Men, It Ts Now  Estimated,   Are  Directly   Involved in the Tie Up.  PITTSBURG, August 14.���Both sides  made material gains today in the great  strike being waged against the- United  States Steel Corporation by. the Amalgamated Association. Tho remaining  force at the plant of the National Tube  Works at McKeesport joined the strikers and that great plant is.now practically silent. The: situation today can  'be generally summarized as follows: In  regard to the numbers the last strike  ordered by president Shaffer has been  obeyed by 20,000.men and the total number of men who struck or are aiding  by their orders is now placed at 65,000.  The manufacturers continue to hold  their ground a.t Chicago, .Toliet, Bay-  view, Youn<*stown. Columbus, the Kis-  minotas valley and in all of the Carnegie plants except, the Lower Union mill  in Pittsburg. The steel in:*nagers also  count on the refusal of the furnace men  of the Mahoning and Shenandoah valleys to strike as a victory. The strikers  scored heavily at McKeesnort today,  when nearly 3000 men and boys employed by the National Tube Company  joined forces with the strikers and tied  =the-plant=up^=-The=strikers^are=also^in=  control at Bellaire and Mingo Junction.  Good order still rules.  , Night Report.  PITTSBURG, August 14.���There were  victories on both sides of the great steel  strike today, but they furnished no direct line on. the ultimate result of the  conflict. The strikers succeeded in  finally forcing the tube workers at McKeesport, probably the largest individual plant in the United.States Steel Corporation, to close down. On the other  hand, the steel corporation reopened the  big Painter plant in this city and also  resumed operations with non-union men  at the Crescent plant of the American  Tin Plate Company at Cleveland. Two  mills wero on at the Painter plant, although one of them broke down during  tho day, and according to the statement  of the oflieials, half the mills in the  Crescent plant were moving. Tho forces  at both tlio plants named are to be increased and the managers claim thoy  will soon have them working in full.  CHICAGO, August 14.���There will be  no strike of the employes at the steel  mills in South Chicago. This point was  settled tonight, when the men refused to  reconsider the action taken Saturday  night, at which time they decided to  stand by tlieir contracts with the mills  and refused to join tho strikers.

The  bullet lodged in tho little one's neck ar.d  she died a few hours afterwards..  QUEBEC, August ]���!.���A Mr. Bona Id,  contractor oC New York, with his sister  and daughter were passengers on the H. it  O. boat which arrived here this morning.  While the party were at dinner' last night  a thief broke into their cabin and stole a  jewelry ease containing $1000 worth of jotv-  elry. No clue.  -V"*"\  Cornered   Like   Rats in  a Trap   the  Workmen Had to Choose Between  Suffocation and Drowning,  CLEVELAND, August 14. ��� Thirty  mpn suffocated in the new water works  tunnel in Lake Erie, five miles from  here, and a number of workmen Jro.v tied are the first reports' of the death  list of an awful calamity which occurred at an early hour this morning.  The new water works tunnel crib No.  2 caught fire and was almost demolished by the flames. Three gangs of  tunnel workmen who live at the crib  were caught like rats in a trap and  either had to jump into th?, lake and  possibly drown or else go back into  the tunnel to a probable death by suffocation. It is known that at least three  men were drowned and a number were  rescued. Men brought in by the tug  unite in saying that there was little  hope for the poor unfortunates Jett in  the shaft. "The elevator is burned,"  .they say, "and they are cornered down,  like rats. As soon as the air becomes  dead they will smother."  Later, foreman von Hartman, who  had ��� returned to the crib, on the tug  which rescued him and his fellow workers, went down into the tunnel shaft  a depth of 120 feet., A rope wa.s tied  around his body, so that if he should  bo overcome by the smoke, he would  have been drawn to: the top. He was  down in the shaft for 15 minutes and  said the men in the tunnel (were alive.  He claimed that he could hear them-  answer his calls. The tug immediately  returned to this city to get a storage  electric battery so the bottom of the  shaft -can be lighted and the rescue  of the 14 men imprisoned in the tunnel  can  be effected.        _  Finally, 'after a deluge of water, had  been thrown on the smoldering shaft  entrance, a voice was heard from the  bottom calling for help. "For God's  sake throw down a rope, throw down  a rope!", a man called. A line was  quickly dropped down*- the shaft and it  was quickly observed that the man *afc  the bottom was able to grasp it. Slowly  and carefully he was raised. - His pallid  face, covered with slime, 'his staring  eyes and heaving chest, told of the horror he had, been through. He was William Curry of Canton. As soon as he  could gasp 'Curry said: "They are all  at the bottom of the shaft; hurry up."  In quick succession the 11 others were  brought up. '������ All were in a most pitiable condition. They reported that, two  other men were lying unconscious at  the bottom of the shaft. A workman  volunteered to rescue these men and  he.was quickly lowered into the shaft.  In 'a few moments the unconscious men  were brought up more dead than alive.  One and possibly two men are supposed  to be lying dead in the tunnel, too fat-  away from the shaft to be reached. The  tugs that hurried to the scene as soon  as the fire was discovered succeeded in  rescuing no less than 20 men, who were  found clinging to the wreckage and  ropes tied to tho burning structure. The  tU-nilj3L^wl*jc]v^_as^j^i^  this afternoon Plummer Jones of Warren, Ohio, an employe of the tunnel contractors and one of the party of rescuers who descended into the shaft to  look for the missing men, was overcome by gas and expired within a, few  minutes. His body lies in the tunnel  75 feet from the bottom of the shaft  and is covered with water. The life  line attached to the body became fouled  and could not be pulled up. David  Kelly, a member of tho rescuing party,  was overcome by gas and is in a precarious condition.  BACK ACROSS THE BORDER  The International Typos,  BIRMINGHAM, Ala., August 14.���At  today's session of the annual convention  of the International Typographical  Union consideration of the report from  the laws committee was continued.- An  amendment offered* by president Lynch  relative to the manner of appeal from  the decision of subordinate unions was  adopted. The appeal is first to be submitted to the president, except where  allied crafts are organized as district  unions. The aggrieved party can appeal from the president's decision to the  executive council and finally to the international body. It was decided to  pay the president and secretary-treasurer $1800 each annually, with traveling  expenses added. Delegate Cutting of  Boston proposed a resolution prohibiting any member of the union from becoming a member of the National Guard  or other military organizations. This  gave rise to, an animated debate. - Finally the whole proposition was tabled.  Cincinnati was unanimously chosen for  the'eonverition of 1902.  CANADA'S CUP TAKEN HOME BY  THE INVADER.  Five Challenges Are Immediately Sent  to Toronto���Performances of the  Yachts Yesterday.  TELEGRAMS IN BRIEF FORM  of construction for several years past  and is still far from complete, has been  the cause all told of the loss of more  than 30 lives. The fire whicli destroyed  the crib this morning was due to an  overheated boiler smokestack. The  boiler exploded soon after the flames  broke out.  Night  Report  CLEVELAND, August 14.���Five men  wore burned to death, four were drowned, three and possibly four were suffocated and several were injured as the  result of a fire whicli destroyed a temporary water works crib, two miles off  l.ho Cleveland harbor today. Twenty-  six men obeyed the order of the manager, 0. C. Vandeur-'on, when tlio flames  broke out and took refuge in tbe water  on floating pieces of wreckage. Four  of them lost their bold upon their frail  floats and sank beneath tho wave:; just  as help reached them. The crew of the  tug J. I'-. Prankle heard the fire whistle  blow front the crib and raced to the  scene from the harbor. She picked up  IS of the survivors who bad drifted to  tlie west of the crib on their floats of  boards and wreckage. Vandeusen .im.*  three of his men were hanging in the  water from a two-inch line suspended  from the crib. Just as fhe line was  burning away from the men's hands,  a yawl boat from the barge Wilhelm,  manned by two men, dashed into heat  and smoke that enveloped tbe crib and  rescued the four men on this rope at the  risk of the boatmen's lives. The men  picked ui) i" the water were brought to  tho city on tbo tug Prankle. They were  naked, exhausted and badly burned.  Many of them wore cut by falling timber. The crib is a total loss. It was a  frame building 200x50 feet, the sides  sheathed with iron. It contained valuable machinery. Jt is now a charred,  shapeless mass of wreckage.  Mayor Johnson expressed great indignation today when he learned that no  boat or life preservers were provided as  a safety measure by the contractors tit  the crib. He declared that tbe case  would receive the closest investigation  and those found guilty of criminal  neglect in the matter would be prosecuted to the full extent of the law.

Chicago yachtsmen  are not dismayed and both the Chicago  and Columbia Yacht Clubs challenged  immediately for the cup. Each club  sent a challenge direct to Toronto immediately after the race, at the same  time handing commodore Goodham of  the Royal Canadian Club a duplicate.  The Rochester Yacht Club also challenged at once and two Detroit clubs.  The Canadian commodore says he cannot tell.which of the five will be given  the preference,  x:  CHICAGO, August 14.���The fourth day  of the International yacht lace for the  Canadas cup broke clear and warm, with  all the weather signs favorable���a light  breeze and almost smooth sea. Today's  course was to be nine nautical miles to  windward and return, or just the opposite. If the wind holds as at present  the rival yachts will start with a light  beat to weather out into the lake with a  spinnaker run for the return trip. But  a shift of wind may make it necessary  to sail to leeward along the shore fnd  beat back.

LONDON, August 14.���The house of  lords took an unusual step this morning  in suspending the sessional order with  the object of passing, on its second  reading, the bill granting special powers to build a pier and other works at  Beechaven, in Bantry bay, Ireland, in  connection with tho proposed fast  steamship line from Beechaven to the  United States, by which it is hoped  the voyage will be accomplished in four  and a half days. The bill had already  passed tbo house of commons. Lord  =.Taines=of=Hereford_reniark-cd_that_such  great public interests were concerned  that the government desired to pass the  bill at the present session.  Lord James of Hereford, who is chancellor of the duchy of'Lancaster, added  that the promoters desired to contract  for harbor work with the object of inaugurating a lino of steamers to the  United States. The steamets will be  built in Great Britain nnd will accomplish the voyage in four and a half days.  The assent of the admiralty officials,  who are constructing naval works at  Beechaven, h.itl boen given for tho  building of the proposed works.  Considerable excitement has been  caused in shipping circles bore by tho  plans for the new trans-Ailaniic service mentioned in the house of lords  today. The shippers have been taken  by surprise. They generally express the  opinion that the vessels will be equipped  with turbine engines, ft is understood  that the enterprise includes tin express  line across southern Ireland and a channel ferry connecting directly with the  Great Western railroad for London. The  cost of the Beechaven harbor works and  tho railroad will be  .C000,000.  A Jap With a Kick.

The meeting  ended with the adoption of strong resolutions, copies of which will be sent  to the Japanese minister at Washington.

Thousands of men are on sti ike at McKeesport, men who woik in the mills  of Morgan's steel trust.    The mayor of  the Pennsylvania town has been criticised for not dispersing these mon when  they congregate on the streets, and his  reply to his critics shows that he has  -the  siuation  well  in  hand.    He says:  '��� At  a* time like  this  in  McKeesport,  " when so many men are idle, they are  " bound to come out on the streets and  " like every  other   crowd  will   gather  " where there is any excitement, but so  " far there has been litle or no disorder,  '��� and in all cases the police have han-  " died the. situation admirably.    There  " is no more orderly set of men in this  " " country than the men who are idle  "in this city today.    In the instances  " in which the tube company requested  ���"'me   to send   men   to   disperse   the  " crowds,  the chief  of police  was  on  *' the ground at the time and 1 eports  " that there was no disorder.   We can-  " not order a man to go home and stay  " there when he is doing no harm and  ** only standing on the streets.   As far  " as   the   tube   company   is   concerned,  "it has taken and appropriates to its  '��� own use a street of this city to which  "it has  no legal right whatever, and  " this is the very street on which it was  "complained that the strikers had con-  *" gregated.    If I allow a private corpo-  " ration to take up and appropriate to  "its own use a street, how can I con-  '" sistently refuse a private citizen the  " right to stand upon it?

During the session of the legislature  last year an act was passed that placed  city municipalities on an equal footing  with power companies as far as acquiring water  rights   is   concerned.    Late  last year the City of Nelson took every  step that the act says should be taken  in order to acquire a Avater right and a  site for the location of a power station.  A protest Avas made at the time by the  West Kootenay  Power & Light Company, and after a hearing before government agent Turner, the protest Avas  not allowed.    The city  got  its   water  record and paid the fees required under  the act.    The land for a site for the  power station %vas surveyed,  the field  notes were accepted, and the usual notice published  in the  official   Gazette.  Another protest Avas made by the West  Kootenay PoAver & Light Company, and  last April a hearing Avas said to have  been .ordered.   It is now August and the  hearing has not yet been had.    What  does the Chief Commissioner of Lands  and  Works  mean?    Has   the  City  of  Nelson with its thousands of people and  thousands of dollars invested in public  utilities no rights that need be respected  Avhen . they  conflict  Avith   the  interests  of the West Kootenay Power & Light  Company?    Or  is the West Kootenay  Power & Light Company to be granted  all the available sites for power stations  on Kootenay river, so that it shall have  a monopoly of the water running in that  great stream?   With the Le Roi Gold Mining Company and the Crow's Nest Coal Company  both engaged in the neAvspaper business  in Kootenay, the interests of these two  ���great companies should be amply pro-  From reports of parties who have recently visited the White Grouse Mountain district, the money that has been  expended on trails there has been practically Avasted.

Journals which Avould be indignant  at the suggestion that the Quebec census  returns have been stuffed by Liberals  in 1901, are not slow to declare that the  Ontario census returns were stuffed by  the Tories in 1S91. The Liberal theory  is that the Conservatives Avere so much  in love Avith Ontario that they stuffed  the population returns from this province in order to increase its parliamentary representation in 1891. The Conservative theory -will be that the Liberals are so much in love Avith Quebec  that they stuffed the population returns  from that province in order to decrease  Ontario's parliamentary representation  in 1901. Liberal journals which are  showing how easily their enemies could  have stuffed the population returns from  Ontario in 1891 show at the same time  that it Avas not impossible for their  friends to stuff the population returns  from Quebec in 1901.���Toronto Telegram.

COBURG, Ont., August C���Mrs. Nellie  Grant Sartoris, cltuiglitcr of general U.  ,?.S. Grant, sealed legally today the inir-  j chase of the magnificent residence of  ;��� Miss   Allan,   daughter   of   the   late   sir  Hugh Allan, founder of I.he" Allan line  '���. of steamships, and will have almost immediate possession.   This princely resi-  ;. dence,  with  its  handsome grounds,  is  :i situated in the southwest part of the  1' town,  on   the  most   commandi.*M  Fife  within its limits.   It has a vio.v ��� >'.' the  town and of the beautiful couna-y for  many miles north, east and west, with a  ��� .panoramic view to the south of the har-  /ibor,  the ��� lake, and  the  crescent-shaped  Iff shore   of   the  bay,  in   the   middle   of  .which   the   residence   is   located.     The  ;bouse was built by tho late Wentworth  'Tremaine, a lumberman.    It was after-  |,ward  purchased and occupied by "Wil-  ' liam Weller, the great mail contractor-  , and proprietor of the line of mail stages  running  between   Hamilton   and   Montreal  for  many  years  previous  to  the  ''construction and opening of the Grand  fjTrunk railway system.   Subsequently it  (was purchased by George Ley, an English gentleman, whose widow sold it to  Miss Allan.    Mrs. Sartoris is accompanied here by her mother, widow of the  [great general, who has just left Saratoga.    Coburg has of late years grown  [in importance as a favorite summer re-  f'sort, and today there is not au available   residence   for    occupation   in    the  ['place.   Its unrivalled situation on Lake  u'Ontario,  with  its  ever  pure  sparkling  ���'waters   and   with   a  balmy,   lisht   but  cooling   and   healthful   breeze   always  coming'off the lake during the summer  'months, has made for it a name and a  fame.     This,   with   the   many   palatial  private residences in the town and the  suburbs,  marks Coburg as  one of the  most beautiful towns in the Dominion of  Canada.    American  visitors,  of  whom  there are hundreds, are charmed with  its situation "and  health-giving atmosphere,   and   many   of   them   have  contributed   much   to   its   wealth   in   residences   they   havo    either   erected    or  bought and  improved.'  Indeed, Coburg  has  had   tho  honor   of  welcoming  as  summer visitors many of the most notable citizens of tho United States.  THE ''..NELSON" TRIBUNE,   THURSDAY MORNING,   AUGUST 115,:; 1901  Intelligence of Dumb. Animals  In a circus ln Paris a lion was given  some meat shut up in a box with a lid  .-'."to"it,...and. the  spectators  watched  to  see whether the lion would open the lid  or crack the box.    He did the former,  much to the gratification of the company. '.   ;, '  '     Female  deer,  when  brought  up   by  .hand, often show quite astonishing intelligence, as do the males until they  i  become vicious, which they-always do.  The>stag: which used to climb the barrack stairs, go out on the outside gal-  t  lery and knock at the doors of the married quarters, which were the only place  ..where milk, of which he was particular-  ' ly fond, was delivered in the morning,  ��� is only one instance in many of their  cleverness.  In the London "Zoo" a large African  elephant restores to" his would-be entertainers all the biscuits, whole or broken,  which  strike the  bars  and  fall  alike  ', out_of JbJs rgaclvand theirs in the space,  T"b~etween the barrier and his cage.    He  ' points  his  trunk straight at  the biscuits and  blows them  hard  along the  If floor to the feet of the persons who  H, have thrown them.    He clearly knows  /( what he is doing, because if the biscuit  l> does riot travel well he gives it a harder  I blow.  Many animals, either pursuing or pursued, exhibit a knowledge of facts very  little known to the majority of mankind,  such as of the places where scent lies  or is obliterated and of tbe effects of  wind in carrying evidence of their presence to the pursuer. The hunted roe  or hare will make circles, double on its  own tracks and take to water or fling  itself for a considerable distance  through the air as cleverly as if it had  read up all tho theory of scent in a  book. Nor are the pursuers less ingenious.. They have learned the art of  "making a cast." This is the dodge by  which a huntsman alike saves time and  picks up a lost scent.  1/ German Thoroughness.  I   The magnificent organization of trade  ,and   technical  schools  in  Germany   is  three generations old!    Our competitors  lare not content with what exists. They  are incessantly employed in perfecting  their practical equipment.   How can we  expect to compete with a country where  thousands of apprenticed clerks, the business directors and commercial travelers  of the future, attend their continuation  .schools for two hours in the morning���  rom 7 o'clock to 9?   Then they go to  their' offices, and long before attaining  their majority they are proficient in at  least a couple of living languages, have  a thorough'grasp of the whole theory  I'land practice of foreign trade, and, above  |��:all, in their own special line have got  IKquite to the bottom of their business.  IliBetween 15  and  19 with  us  the state  Kvknows  next  to nothing of  its  youth,  IfVjthough that is the very period in whicli  ''?Tpermanent   character   ana  faculty  are  .-^shaped.   The thousand boys who might  ff^have become technical experts or com-  [���Hmercial travelers as fluent and j-ersua-  ���ysive as their  Continental rivals  in as  ''many tongues, would be worth a roil-  Uion of the elementary instructed, v. ho  'retain little more on the'average than a  TME CANADIAN  BANfe OF COMMERCE  *  wrXfn which is amalgamated  THE  BAN-rK  OF BRITISH COLUMBIA.

The Roman* pe of Warfare.  Very characteristic', but unfounded, ' said  tho speaker, was tl^io objection made by  colonel Graves when\ he said: "The Doer  fights to prevent hisT foe getting at'him,  while the British, 1 ;iim proud to believe,  fights with the view oil' getting-' at his t'oe."  Surely the question hei-c is not who fought  in the most chivalrous!',and romantic way,  but who fought best Iwith the object of  gaining victory. The qrlrestion was merely  which was (he best li'iiir of lighting under  modern conditions. As.ccVlonel Graves made  his comparison for tlie'pWposo of explaining British rvorses they inuist como to the  conslusion that the unrolmaiitlc Boer way  was tlie best. But if this I was so, this was  the method which would lbo adopted In the  continental war, in spite lot' all regulation  and maneuver drill. The iFrench, for instance, were a very chivamous and romantic race, but when it was .al question of defending their fatherland thley would fight  in the way that was most I likely to gain  victory, and not in the waly that looked  best in a picture. Therefore,! if tlie Boers  were most successful bccausili they lay behind entrenchments, never exposed themselves, and crept instead of Walked, they  merely adapted themselves tol new conditions of war, and did whatl .continental  military men had often declared it was  necessary to do. There was no-, use In accusing the Boors in lighting iiji an unro-  mantic way. Their object Was tk> gain the  victory, and if the so-called Boq-r methods  ���that was to say, ingenious ��� entrenchments, creeping attacks and i\ general  preference for tho defensive���were,! the best  they might be ���-ure that they -would be  adopted in a future war. Colonc1' Graves  said that as a, consaquenec of ithis dif-  I'crerrLiorr "we find greater losses! on the  part of tlio British troops." IKxactly.  But that the Boor-methods do noil waste  lives unnecoss'ii'ily was Its best justification. To those who did not agree wiUh this  opinion"he would say that it was unworthy  to regard war from tlie point of view of a  sportsman and to regard an army .\is an  instrument, of seeking adventure \ and  showing address and audacity. Those! who  regarded war in this light had bettelr go  hunting lions or competing in chamilion-  ships. The sacrifice of a.single life melrely  Is  sold  everywhere.  Ironbrew.  HKAD  OFFICK.

VICTORIA, August 13.��� News was received by tho steamer Olympia of the trial  of three Americans���James Winn, Alfred  rit'iit, and'Richard Leslie Butler��� who together with Andy .Homan, a Dane, and H.  JS. Piper, formerly correspondent of the  North China Dally News and Chinese interpreter, looted a Chinese pawnbroker's  store in a village about thirty miles from  Pekin on June 25th. The case was tried at  Tien Tsin before United States consul  Ragsdale on the complaint' of the pawnbroker, Chan Yiun Peng, which was dated  July Sth. He alleged that tho foreigners  came to his store with a number of carts  and, declaring that ho was accused of boing a Boxer leader and had fire arms hidden, began to mako a search. They strung  up one of the Chinese and bound the others  and demanded five thousand taels, of which  the Chinese could raise only 500. After  spending a night in the store they left next  morning carrying away a quantity of silver and jewelry. Their carts had Hod, being chased by the Chinese patrol.  A petition has boon presented to LI Hung  Chang by the people of Chi LI, praying exemption from the indemnity demanded for  losses suffered by the missionaries and  converts. Tho plea puts forth that the people will find it impossible to pay' the indemnity and coercion would drive the province to revolt.  Does  not' contain  any harmful ingredients.

I  An extraordinary geneial meeting: of the  shareholders of the Athabasca Gold Mine,  Limited, was held in London on Wednesday last for the purpose of considering a  resolution offered by the directors of the  company; to the end that the Athabasca  company should go into voluntary liquidation.Vlt has been known for some'time, that  the management of the Athabasca company contemplated-a.reconstruction'In the  event of the dsal on the -..Venus': group go-  ii'S through, but while" this deal is mentioned in the circular calling attention to  iho extraordinary general meeting it is  suggested that in any event it will be in  the interests of all concerned lo put the  company into volunt'uj- liquidation. The  resolution which was submitted , to the  shareholders of the Athabasca for their approval reads as follows:  "That this company too wound up voluntarily, it having beeiv proved to the shareholders' satisfaction that the company cannot by reason of its liabilities continue its  business, and that it is advisable to wind  up the same, and John A.VR. Clark bo and ���  he is hereby appointed lipuidator, for the  purpose of; such winding up at a feu of  lifty guineas. ���       ,k  Jchn A. Turner, the secretary of the  company, in his circular to'tlio shareholders calling attention to the extraordinary  general meeting attempts to locate the reasons for tlie winding up of the company,  but oddly enough does not mention the ore  bodies in the Athabasca mine. The state  of the mine, however, was probably inquired into at the meeting of the shareholders, but it .will be a week or more before the reports of the meeting will "reach  Nelson. Since the Athabasca meeting was  called, however, the deal upon the Venus  property was perfected, which may have  _a!Wimpoi'lartf^bearJng=upba=the=li(|Uidation=  resolution submitted.  In his circular the secretary remarks  that the shareholders are probably aware  that lack of water in the early part of the  year, and the consequent inability to work  the air compressor plant and rock drills,  caused the development of the mine to fall  greatly into arrears to such an extent that  it was necessary from lack of oro to close  down tlie mill and simply keep a small  force of men on development work and the  cyanide process. The cyanide plant works  Willi great success and, as the mill was  closed, the sr>.S72 yield of gold l'or .lune was  obtained entirely from the cyanide. Unfortunately the amount of tailings on hand  cannot keep the cyanide plant supplied for  more than a few weeks,  Under- the circumstances it was deemed  best by IJir directors to confer with the  itiiilinpT. lie came tn England !n  May and explained the position of affairs,  and that a considerable overdraft had boon  'necessary from our bankers at Nel.son to  moot thu losses on working during tho  past live months. The directors then decided that before proposing anything to the  English shareholders- it would be well to  get the opinion of the Canadian shareholders, who hold more than half tho  shares in the company. The manager lias  now ueen in Toronto for somo days discussing a plan whereby tho company may be  greatly strengthened by an:aI*janiati:iiT  with an adjacent property which is in a  highly developed state, with largo bodies  of oro ready for stoping and practically  ready to commence shipping to the Athabasca mill. Tho Canadian shareholders  have entire confidence in the mine.  The following letter from a Canadian  firm in Toronto, representing the Canadian shareholders, dated July 12th, gives  the latest information in tlie possession  of the board: "We had been waiting to  answer your letter of tlie llth of June until we had Keen Nelson Fell, who arrived  here last Monday, the Sth July, and since  then wc have i-een in close communication  witli him and other pa>'tics interested in the  Athabasca and the Venus as to some way  of getting out of the pros-rent dllllculty,  find we arc very hopeful that in the course  of the next week or ten days wc will be  able to fovvard you a scheme of reconstruction   that  -will   meet  with .your approval  The Tribune Is Strictly Impartial.  NELSON,'August 14th.���To the'Editor of  The  Tribune:  Having read in  your paper  of  this  date  the   following item  of news:  "The strike of the C.  P. E.  trackmen on  the Kootenay branches of the 0. I". It. is  now virtually  over,  as  practically all  the  old foremen have gone back to work" and  being  able   from   personal   observation   to  correct   this   statement,   i   hope   you   will  grant me space in your valuable paper to  do so. 1 went over the line on the Kith instant  and  found, that  there is  one  trackwalker from jNelson  to Bonnington  Falls,  two foremen and'two men from that point  to Robson. Another crew at Sloean Junc-  iton.  A  crew  composed  of one Italian  at  Park  Siding.   Neither  foremen  or  men  on  Slocan City section. Your paper last week  stated that sections on the C. & W. were  all   tilled   and   roadmaster   had   two   good  men to spare. I read a telegram to a section foreman dated the 12th instant, ottering him  a  choice  of  several   vacant  sections, and as tp all the old foremen having  gone to work,  out of twelve foremen employed on Slocan branches only three have  taken sides with the company and decided  to  scab on  their fellow-foromen.  In sone  paragraphs your paper states that work in  replacing the burned trestle on the Nakusp  branch   is  now   well   under   way.   A  good  word to use, as-It Is so well under that it  is out of sight. Curious how the: local news-,  hunter  would, not  mention   the  fact  that  neither in Rossland, Nelson nor Slocan City.  can  the  agents  of  the  C.  P.  K.  company  find a carpenter to go  to work while  the  strike is on. A line specimen of the Weary  Willie   class   was   seen   speaking   to. the  bridge  superintendent  in  Slocan  City  and  go out on the boat, so with the assistance  of such a helper and properly written, fictitious   reports   in   newspapers   the   public  may be brought to believe that said trestle  is under repair,   but as arrangements are  being made to carry traffic via Slocan and  Kobson and over the K.  Ss S., it is adivs-  able   to   see ..for   one's   self   the   truth   of  ���U*eso_renor.ts._Lmust-say���that-some-pE-tho-  local would-be-ollicials are placed in some  curious positions. 1 heard one swear that  he never would employ en Italian in future,  aid a week later seeks, finds, coaxes,  and coerces the ex-organ grinder to take  charge of a section. Gets him to do so, no  doubt, to get kicked out neck and crop  when the strike Is settled. Then we read  the strike is over. What a subject for a  sermon on truth.  T. G.  M'MANAMON,  B. of It.

Young of the Seventh Day  Adventists will this evening commence a  series of talks on the nature of man and  the probability of his ever being obliged  to sizzle in hell fire and torment for ever  and ever. The talks will be divided into  three heads, the nature of man from creation, the sleep of the dead, and the final  destiny.  Nelson's water works extensions are evidently dependent upon the steel worker's  strike. Several months ago the city placed,  an order with the National Tube Works at  McKeesport for a car of pipe-and fittings,  but so far the car has failed to come to  hand and it appears to be impossible to determine whether the material has been  shipped or whether it is tied up in the  strike.    -.����'*.  Dr. LaBau has transmitted to the city  council a copy of the provincial board of  health's regulations for the care of cases  of tuberculosis with the suggestion that  the city should adopt them and make them  apply to the city.

The   two  skips  handled   their  men   to   the   host, advantage, with  fhe result that several very  close   ends   were   put   up   with   the   result  in doubt until the last bowl was delivered.  For the first six ends the play was as close  as  it  could  be,  neither  side getting more  than one ball in one ei.u,  the lirst half of  the game ending three all. Tho Dover rink  scored   one   in   the  ninth  end,   but  in   the  tenth   thoy went all   to  pieces.  The Booth  rink were lying about live shots and their  .skip  had  one  more  bowl  to deliver whon  Neelands, thinking the end was over, liftad  one of his rink's bowls. The Dover rink at  once  raised  the  objection   that  under  this  rules it was no end.
