Array I *  ESTABLISHED   1892  SATUKDA.Y MOEN'IN'G,' AUGUST  17,. 1901  DAILY  EDITION  MINE OPERATOR'S VIEWS  B. 0. VAN HOUTEN TALKS OF  THE INDUSTRY.  New Brunswick Syndicate Who Have  ; a Valuable Montana Property.  White Horse District.  B. C. Van Hon ten of Seattle, who is interested Willi A. J. Murks, P. Burns and W.  J. Wilson of this city in the California  mine near New Denver, is stopping at tho  Hume. Mi\ Van Houtcrr is in the eity in  connection with the . development of the  California. Work upon this property lias  been proceeding: for some time past.upon  a contract-basis'-and Mr. Van llouten ex-  ' pects to meet the contractor here today,  after which he will make a personal in-,  spection of the property, until which he  will not bo In ii position to say anything  as to the .program for the future, although  the advices which he has received from the  property from time lo time have been uniformly satisfactory with respect to the  manner ln which'it has been opened up.  During the past three years Mr. ' Aran  llouten has been, more or less mixed up  in mining in the state of Montana, where  :��� he says he has been -very successful. His  mission to Montana in the lirst instance  was In connection with the winding up of  a defunct bank and through this- means  he became interested in a mining venture  _ which resulted ln the opening up of a new  camp'which is now furnishing employment  to upwards of 150 men and promises to  make wealthy men out of a number of  New Brunswickers who later bought into  the prinoipal property of the camp. Amo.'ig  ' the other assets of the defunct bank was  an interest in a mining property upon  which work was suspended for some time.  The. neglected mining property proved to  be one of. the best assets of the bank. A  bond upon it was given to Harry Bush, thy  well known operator, but shortly after ho  took hold a portion of the property: was  Viumped. A- portion of the proporty ; happened to be patented, however, and upon  this portion the mill "erected by the original  holders stood. AVork upon this portion was  undertaken with vigor and in a short time  a 'new .-strike,.' was made * upon it which  yielded sufficient, ore to keep the mill go-  ��� ing. The.'jumpers were got rid. of at a cost  " of somethiiig'ljke..'$20,000 ..anti-Van Hou ten  and others got * hold of the ��� adjoining property at a very reasonable figure. In time a  company was; formeel which "took1 in the  outside" property, held by Van llouten and  his associates and one bond upon another*  was taken upon the group, which was,  known as the Bear Gulch. The latter bond  is for 51,300,000 and Is IiokI by St. John people, whose expert is how on his way to pass  liponthc proporty before the final payment  Is made.''The property Is situated at a town  called Jardine, .across from the Yellowstone park. It is a free milling proposition, the value'* saved in the mill ranging from $7 to if!) per ton with considerable  value in the tailings which . are to be  t-eated by the cyanide process. From recent reports made upon the property" it is.',  estimated that there are now at least 500, ���  000 tons of ore-of this grade now blocked  out and considerable additions are now contemplated to the milling capacity by the  addition of forty stamps.  Latterly Mr. Van Hon ten has been  through the AA'hlte Horse district in the  Canadian Northwest in which promising  =copper.=prospects=are=now=receiving^atten-=  , tion. His mission in this venture is in the  interests of Butte men. At present very  little work has been done, as the properties  arentill very largely in the hands of the.  original owners who have not the capital  to' open them up. but from the surface indication** Mr. Van rrouten says that the  -.district gives every Indication of being one  3 of the greatest copper eapips on the continent. Aftor looking the district over Mr.  ,Aran llouten took several samples out for  rifswy, the test upon which gave uniformly  high value* in copper, which Is curried in  bornltft and copper sulphides, the assays  ranging from al to 50 per cent copper with  from $*] to $S in gold and about 15 ounces  in silver. One feature which is very favorable to (he development of the district Is  the anxiety of tire White Pass railway to  get an outward tonnage from this district,  and to stimulate mining a freight and  treatment rate of about $15 per ton has  been offered. This will make mining comparatively easy, as It will leave a handsome margin if the ledges maintain tlieir  present indicated values. AVhen he concludes the private business which is al  present engaging, his attention Mr. Van  Houton intends to return north and he is  confident that tho White Horse district  will soon be as well known as the now  famous placers of'the Klondike. In short  Ire is the opinion that, the cntlro northern district will be given over to quart1-,  mining, ���which at least will be more permanent even should the returns from it  be less alluring 'than those from success-  a cordial greeting.  alderman Gillett, who is Interested in the  clearing of the street by reason of the circumstance that he has the contract for  the erection of the city school which it is  proposed to erect upon the block. AVhen  the matter was called to the attention of  mayor Fletcher ho at once gave orders for  the suspension of tho foreman for disobeying instructions and a summons was issued citing alderman Gillett to appear in  tlie police court this morning in answer, to.  a charge for violating the provisions of the  by-law-respecting the preservation of the  shade trees. It Is said that many of the  trees destroyed wero evergreens of several  years growth.  The New Steamship Line.  LONDN, August 16.���S. G. Fraser, the  Dublin engineer, who has prepared plans  for the new harbor at Berehaven, Bantry  bay, Ireland, in connection witli the proposed , steamship line which is to have  steamers capable of erasing tho Atlantic  in four and a half days, informed a representative of the Associated Press today  that the list includes six large steamers,  four for the New York and two for the  Canadian trade. It is the intention to burn  Texas oil. The Canadian port will be Sydney or Halifax. By building 65 miles of  railroad and connecting Berehaven with all  the Welsh lines the new company will be  able to take paserrgers and mails from  Berehaven to London in 12 hours, thus  landing passengers in New York and London In five days. The English port will be  Liverpool or Southampton until the new  works at Dover are completed. Austin  Chamberlain, Gerald Balfour, and George  Wyndham, respectively the financial secretary of the treasury, the president of the  board of trade, and chief secrotary of Ireland, besides lord James Hereford, chancellor of the duchy of Lancaster, actively  supported the bill and advised silence on  this side of the Atlantic until the bill was  passed. Mr. ��� Fraser says much American  capital is interested in the scheme.  THE TRACKMEN'S  STRIKE  NEW FAIRVIEW CORPORATION  RAPID   PROGRESS   BEING   MADE  IN IMPROVEMENTS.  Mills Already Erected and Course of  Completion���-Company's Affairs  Are in Good Shape.  Blue Paper for Gillett.  Alderman Gillett will figure ln the police,  court thif" morning as the defendant in  a case laid under the city by-laws. Alders' man Gillott's difficulty has come to him  _____ by reason of his action in causing the felling of shade trees on Latimer street in  front of the new school block. When tho  work of grading this blocjc was put in hand  the mayor gave the city foreman strict  |�� orders not to destroy any of the shade  trees on the streot. This order was so generally understood that when the city en-  ,! 'filoeer visited the site he was surprised to  ���find that the shade trees had been completely wiped out. The explanation offered  5>y Archie McDonald, the foreman, is that  I,   lie was ordered to cut the trees down by  Eupt. Marpole Interviewed.  ��� R. Marpole, general superintendent of the  Paciile division of the Canadian Pacific,  arrived in Nelson last evening. A representative of The Tribune-sought an interview with Mi*v Marpole as to the progress  being made* toward the settlement of the  trackmen's strike. Mr. Marpole, when approached, said that he had-very carefully  avoided newspaper interviews since the  trouble had been on, but he had just" received from Montreal headquarters a report of the proceedings of the conciliatory  committee which hie thought spoke for  itself.'vA 'report;-"of .this committee's^ profj-  ceedings: appears. in another column. It  shows a break in the ranks of the trainmen and trackmen, ;and one which is not  likely to be' bridged so long as president  AVilson of the trackmen's brotherhood continues to direct the affairs of the strike.  Mr. Marpole explained that the matters  in, dispute, between the company and its  striking trackmen had been referred to an  arbitration committee composed of the  chairmen of the various brotherhoods  whose services as conciliators had been accepted by both the trackmen and the company. As a result of their deliberations a  basis of settlement was arrived at,' which  In the opinion of the other rail way.brotherhoods was fair to the trackmen, but after  accepting the services of their associate  brotherhood chairmen the trackmen had  seen lit to reject their finding, and had  asked for an arbitration on their differences  instead of conciliation. The reply made by  the chairmen of the brotherhoods to this  request was; to say tire least, significant,  the members of the committee saying in  so many words that thoy did not consider  =that=they^could=accoinplish-Jinytliin^rThless~  president Wilson of the brotherhood of  trackmen would leave Montreal within  24 hours and agree not to interfere with  either committee in any way, and also give  the trackmen's committee power to call  the strike off when in their judgment a  reasonable basis of settlement could be  effected.  Mr. Marpole considered tho purport of the  finding of the conciliatory committee sufficiently plain, it was not the finding of  the company or of officials of the company  upon the matters at issue, but tlie finding  of the representatives of all tho brotherhoods of engineers, conductors, firemen,  trainmen and telegrapher.**. All that he had  to say upon the present phase of the question was that, he regarded It as a very regrettable condition that It should be In the  power of any man to continue a .condition  which meant considerable loss to the entire country, and it was even more unfor-  tunrtc when this power was wielded by an  alien who had no interest or even residence  in the country .  Touching the request of the trackmen  that their grievances now be referred to ���  a board of arbitrators, Mr. Marpole said  that in' his opinion the company could  como through such arbitration in a very  creditable manner, but he had no information from Montreal beyond that contained  in the dispatch dealing with the report of  the conciliation 'committee. One feature  which pleased him during the progress of  the strike was the disposition of tho company's striking foremen toward the company. As was to be expected there was  friction in one or two places, but he did  not think that in a single instance the  trouble could be traced to the old foremen.  In somo places the trackmen had given  trouble, but this was only to be expected  in view of the heavy percentage of foreigners employed in this work. Mr. Marpole  will remain in Nelson for a day or two.  OonrlitioTis in Tn*iia  LONDON, August 16.���Lord Georgo Hamilton, Indian commissioner, in the house  of commons today presented the financial  statement for India. He said that in spite  of three years of famine and acute depression in the three agricultural staples���tea.  indigo and cotton���he was able to present  the most favorable balance sheet since India came undor tho crown.  . FAIRVIEW, August; 16.���[Special to  The Tribune.]���Nelson shareholders in  the New Fairview Corporation will be  pleased to learn that rapid progress is  being made in the excavation for the  new.mill site at the Stemwinder mine.  Already the Tin Horn mill of eight batteries or two stamps each and the building itself have been dismantled and  hauled away to the mine ready to be re-  erected. This meant the handling cof  250 tons. Now the Joe Dandy mill, recently purchased by the directors of the  corporation for less than one-tenth of  its originalcost, is being torn down and  and is one of the most complete and  batteries of five stamps each manufactured'by Fraser. & Chalmer of Chicago,  and is ont of the most complete and  up-to-date mills ever brought into the  province. Sometime early inOctober the  re-erection of the combined mills should  be completed and crushing started. From  80 to 100 tons of ore AvilL.be treated  daily, according to the size of the screens  used. The erection of the stamps is under the superintendency of Charles Os-  tenburg, who has to his credit the building of the Cariboo mill.  During the excavation work for the  mill site the men uncovered an entirely  new vein, 100 feet to the north of the  so-called "north vein" of the Stem-  winder. It has a width of five feet and  shows good looking quartz. In time  the management will continue the present cross-cut from the north ledge another 100 feet to this new discovery and  should the vein hold its width and values with depth it will afford a considerable addition to the tonnage of the  mine.  The mill will be built 300 feet north  .from .the. shaft .house, and its situation  'is  an "advantageous "one  ih  many respects]    Midway between the mill  and  mine buildings is to be located the new  boiler house. . By  this  arrangement  a  saving  will  be  effected   in   not a  few  ways, ��� such  as  in  insurance rates'and  in the. employment of only one set of  firemen, as the boiler power^sdme 150  horse  power���will  run  both  mine* and  mill.    In  fact everything is. being arranged with a view to practicing economy in the smallest details.   The task of  installing the combined mills is no light  one when  it  is  remembered that over  400 tons "of machinery and lumber has  had to be torn down, loaded onto wagons  and   hauled   a   distance   of   over   three  miles to be erected into one combined  plant.    The, work is being done systematically and with all speed, so by the  time the heavy timbers are up for the  mill building, roughly SOxSO feet^in size,  the machinery will all be on the ground  ready to be put together.  - Asked  by  the  correspondent of  The  Tribune for a statement regarding the  affairs of the corporation, manager R.  =Russell=gave=oiit=the=following:=-**The  reorganization and assessment plan has  met with a prompt response from our  shareholders and is proving most successful.    Already owners  of over  two-  thirds of the issued capital have paid  their   initial   assessment.     This   represents   more  than   ��25,000   paid   in   and  every   mail   continues   to   add   to   this  amount.   Out of this sum a payment of  $14,000 has been made on .the Gooderham  & Blackstock mortgage, reducing  it by one-third.   The balance will be met  out of the second assessment.    All  the  old liabilities have been wiped out and  the balance of the money on hand will  meet present payrolls.    Shareholders, I  feel sure, will be satisfied with the work  already accomplished and will  be glad  to know, barring unforeseen contingencies, that the mill will be running early  in October. Regarding the initial assessment  it  might  be  pointed  out  to  any  shareholders who have not yet paid up  that at a recent meeting of the board  of directors it was agreed to extend the  time for payment to the first of September,  and  no  longer.    After  that date  delinquent stock will be absolutely forfeited and returned to the treasury," he  concluded.  Young Coibett Gets the Decision.  DENVER, August 16.���Young Corbett  was given the decision after 10 rounds  with George Dixon, former featherweight champion, tonight. While Corbett was the aggressor at all' times,  Dixon punished him severely and from  the fifth round to the finish Corbett's  face was bathed in blood. In the  seventh, ninth and tenth rounds Dixon  was badly punished by Corbett's persistent jabs in the ribs. .Dixon was in  his old-time form when it came to  blocking, but he fought a defensive battle all through. He was willing to mix  it up with his sturdy opponent, however, and always broke even in the  fighting.  Troops Still Remain in Pekin.  PEKIN, China, August IC���Tbe troops  of the powers have not yet evacuated  the public buildings. The British and  Americans propose to occupy the temple of heaven and the temple of agri  culture until their barracks are ready.  Sir Ernest Satow, the British minister,  thinks it would not be wisg to withdraw before the protocol has'"been signed in conjunction with the Chinese plenipotentiaries, as the withdrawal would  remove the chief inducement to the  Chinese to sign. The Japanese still  hold the northern section of the city.  It is considered significant of their relations with the Chinese .that a Japanese colonel has been selected to command and organize the Chinese. The  opinion is.growing that the court will  refuse to return so long as the powers  maintain such forces in the province' of  Chi Li. The protocol does not provide  for the destruction of the forts, ministers of the powers having failed to agree  on this point. v 7,  REPORT FROM BRADSTREET  BRITISH  COLUMBIA   NEWS  COLISTRO RELEASED ON SIX HUNDRED DOLLAR BONDS.

IT IS NOW UP TO WILSON  BUSINESS CONDITIONS THROUGHOUT CANADA.  General Trade  of the Dominion Has  Been Fairly Active During     -J  the Past Season.  TORONTO, August;; 16.--Business at  Montreal has been fair for this season.  It is scarcely time .yet for any active  movement in business such as is always  experienced in the attei* part of August,  but the preparations already being made  for the fall trade, plainly indicate that  the movement this year will be large  and retailers intend to be well prepared  for an increased demand before snow'  flies. Values are steady all round. Collections are fair for this season. Trade  has been rather less active in Toronto,  and this week there has been a fair  number of fall orders coming to hand,-  but travelers are now coming off their  routes to prepare for the sorting trips  and when they return to their routes  it is expected there will be renewed activity in buyingi, among tho retailers.  The,crop prospects are oncouraging to  business and the general expectation is  that the results will be increased activity in many departments of trade aud  manufacture.the.nextJjrow months. Values of staple goods continue steady  to firm.. Payments are not very satisfactory at the moment, but they never  are expected to be good at this time of  the year,,when the farmers are busy getting in their crops and little or no produce is being marketed.   ���  The feature in business at the.Pacific  coast the past 10 days .was, the enormous  run of salmon in the Fraser river, which  has beaten all records and the take has  been very ..heavy. This- will do much  for the prosperity'at the Coast and-cause  the circulation of a great.deal of money  in the far west. . Tho outlook for retail  trade at Vancouver and Victoria is  brighter. Payments are still somewhat  slow.  Business at London is fair for this"  .���week for the midsumai'er ;holiday season. Retailers have been buying some  good parcels of goods for the fall and  prospects seem to indicate that when  the grain movement begins there will  be considerable activity in trade at  country market points as well as increased activity in the larger canters.  ^=-l-hG=atte*Jt-ion=-o�����business=m^n^ff  Winnipeg is pretty well absorbed in the  crop situation at the moment. Wheat  cutting is progressing favorably in most  districts. The outlook is more'encouraging than it-was 10 days di* two weeks  ago and there is less heard about tho  deterioration of the grain now and many  districts are reporting good results.  Railroad traffic is already very heavy  and the increase in the movement when  the wheat begins to move will be very  great.  STRIKERS ARE ENCOURAGED  By the Action of Joliet Workmen.  PITTSBURG, August 1G.���The center  of interest in the steel strike shifted  to the west, where Joliet finally swung  into line with the strikers and Milwaukee appointed tomorrow as the time and  place for a final vote on the question.  Tho news that came out of the west  cheered the strikers throughout, the districts in this vicinity as.no other developments since the labor war was declared. They count upon favorable action at Milwaukee tomorrow and say  that they will yet win Chicago over.  These successes, they declare, will make  them masters of the situation and win  the strike. The steel operators, on the  other hand, say the strikers are nearly  at the flood tide of their success and  when the ebb comes it never can' be  stopped. They also claim that many of  their men,- particularly at McKeesport,  Wheeling and Bellaire, were forced out  by intimidation and will come back as  soon as the excitement dies out and their  safety is assured. Talk of terms has  been dropped for the time being and it  is agreed that in its present aspects the  situation indicates a prolonged and stubborn contest. Two hundred men employed in the national galvanizing works  of the National Tube Company at McKeesport struck today. They were the  last remaining workmen in tho affected  trades in that city and the tie-up is now  as complete as possible there. Many of  the tube workers, although on strike,  have refused to join any union and the  opinion is expressed that there will soon  be a break among the strikers.  ROSSLAND, August lG.-i-[Speciar to  The Tribune.]���Joseph Colistro, 'who  ���was sentenced yesterday by. police  magistrate Boultby in the technical assault case to two months' imprisonment  at Nelson with hard labor, vyithout the  option of a line, was released this afternoon pending the appeal taken by A.

Beamish held his own today and gave Horn  a hot two hours of it on cross-examination. ' The other crown witnesses were,  also ably handled by the accused. The  defence was commenced late this afternoon and an. adjournment was taken at  4:30 until Monday.  There has been no change in the strike  situation here or at Northport up to a  late hour this ovening.  (BY jVSSOCIATED PRESS.)  ROSSLAND, August 16.���[Special to  The Tribune.]���An appeal was taken  today in the case of Joseph Colistro, the  Italian miner, sentenced to two months'  imprisonment for an assault on- a nonunion employe of the Northport smelter. The prisoner was liberated on  ��1100 bail.  The Abo Lincoln mine ou Deer Park,  overlooking this city, will resume operations at once. The property has a  promising showing, but has been closed  down for two years because of a depleted  treasury. This has been remedied and.  operations will be commenced with a  view to demonstrating the merit of the  proposition.  Bit Off His Nose.  KASLO, August 16.���[Special to The  Tribune.]���John Power, a freighter of  McGuigan, was badly chewed up by a  man named Jim Gillis on the road between Whitewater and McGuigan on  Wednesday. Gillis had been in the employ of Power doing government. road  work, but was discharged last Friday.  Meeting Power afterwards he immediately knocked him down and getting  on top of him bit-a piece out of his  nose. In trying to free himself Power  got one of his thumbs in Gillis' mouth  and had it badly bitten, besides being  cut badly on his cheek and neck. Power  came to town yesterday to have his cuts  doctored and has sworn out a warrant  for the arrest' of Gillis, who has a bad  reputation.

BAKERSFIELD, August IG.���-A terrible cloudburst has occurred at Teha-  chapi, doing an immense amount of  damage. All connections by wire, telephone and telegraph are severed and it  is impossible to obtain particulars. Four  or five washouts resulted and the Southern Pacific and Sante Fe trains are delayed here until the track is in shape  for traffic. It is said that two inches of  rain fell in halt* an hour.  MOBILE, Ala., August 16.���The tropical storm, which came up from the  south Wednesday and increased in force  during the night following, is believed  to have been the severest in the vicinity of Mobile. Here the wind blew at  the rate of 70 miles an hour. Various  reports of the drowning of men in the  bay have been received here, but it is  impossible to confirm them, as there  is very little means of communication.  NEW ORLEANS, La., August IG.���The  storm has passed and seems to have  done no great damage anywhere except  along t.he river below the city. In the  city the only injury was to the lakeside  resorts and to the section flooded by  the break in a canal bank, which was  closed before morning. Rice and orange  farms on thn lower coast were severely  injured.   A large house was overturned.  .1  7< ������;;&:  if  n&: .*!

The government should be fair to
all sections of the province. Money
should not be expended lavishly in ono
section and niggardly in another. The
people of one town should not be wet-
nursed and those of another town allowed to go dry. Judging by its actions
in the matter of public school buildings,
the government at Victoria—if the government has had anything to say in
the matter—is unfair. It gives the City
of Rossland all the money that a public
school building will cost. It makes the
City of Nelson bear half the cost of a
much-needed public school building. Is
this the' even-handed justice that is
dealt out by the government, or is it
the way the minister of education has
of evading one of the duties given him
to perform by premier Dunsmuir?    ••

A Commendable Feature.
One of the commendable and valuable
features of trades, unions is the manner
in> which they look after -any of their
members who are in distress.   This was
particularly noticeable during the past
week, when John McTaggart, a member of the Miners' Union here, Avas injured at the Metropolitan. The boys
packed McTaggart from the mine to
Thomson's Landing, a distance of some
26 miles, on a stretcher, and srave the
injured man the very best attention,
while $10 a week for 10 weeks,is also
provided by the union. Trades unionism
stands for justice and protection to those
who become members, and also secures
benefits for non-union men. If there is
a miner outside of the ranks of the
union in this camp today the above
should be an object lesson foi* him.—•

If the evidence is printed correctly in
the Rossland papers, police magistrate
Boultby did not give an impartial .decision in the Colistro case. The decision
indicates that the police magistrate of
Rossland is aching to place himself on
record along with Bernard McDonald as
a union smasher.
The Lardeau Eagle says: "Has pre-
" mier Dunsmuir a supporter in the in-
" terior who could safely resign his
"seat to accept a cabinet position? If
"he thinks so let him make the experi-
" ment." What is," the matter with Tom
Taylor taking a .fly at it? He surely
would be supported by the Eagle, and
he would make a better provincial secretary than Prentice.

Mayor Fletcher is of opinion that
there can only be one responsible head
in the management of civic business.
He had a different opinion Avhen he was
an alderman. In towns the size of.
Nelson, the mayor must of necessity
be the responsible manager of the civic
business. Aldermen should not, under
any circumstances, meddle with details.
They should say how money is to be
expended, and hold the mayor responsible for carrying out the details.
One Blot in the West.
Whether the Laurier government has
behaved towards Conservative office
holders in Western Canada as cruelly as
the Roblin government has behaved to
Liberal office holders in Manitoba is a
question which can only be settled by a
detailed comparison of dismissals. Western Canada is" the one blot in the dealings of the Laurier government with
Conservative officeholders. It is not
yet certain that the slaughter of Tory
■civil servants under LiberaL auspices in
the West is at all comparable to the
massacre of Liberal civil servants under the auspices of hon. R. P. Roblin
in Manitoba.—Toronto Telegram.
To Care for, Lepers
The army officers in the Philippines
are making preparations for the care of
lepers'.- The report of a board of officers convened in Northern Luzon to
gather data on the conditions obtaining
on the subject, recommends the island
of Barri, which is said to be uninhabited and of sufficient size, two miles by
one mile, to accommodate the lepers of
Luzon; .This report Avas transmitted to
the commission, and attention invited
to'the recommendations contained in
indorsements from the officers transmitting previous reports on the same general subject. Further developments of
the leper colony and the actual work
of the aggregation of lepers await proper
legislation.
It Is a Good Circus.
The Spokane Spokesman-Review of
yesterday has the following regarding
the Sells & Gray circus that exhibits
in Nelson on Monday next: "The Sells
& Gray circus, which showed yesterday
at the old grounds on College avenue,
•made^an^excellenWrnpressioni^-Prbbabry
6000 people saw the show, and most of
them were well pleased. The premier
act of the circus is given by the Eddy
family, whose acrobatic work in complete dress is of the highest order. There
are eight people in the company—four
men ,two women, a girl and a tiny tot
of a boy about six years old. When they
get into action they resemble nothing on
earth so much as a flock of cyclones on a
frolic.   The Tyballs, two women and a
; man, did some brilliant work in head
balancing. Even more interesting, however, was the Avork of the two women
alone. One of them, hanging from a
trapeze, held up another trapeze by her
teeth and supported her sister while
performing upon it. Edna Marietta,
who is advertised as the only woman
in America turning a back somersault
on horseback, proved her ability to do
the turn. An interesting feature about
the   circus   Avas   the  freshness   of   the
.costumes and the neatness of the performers. The horses likewise attracted
most  favorable  attention."

His views,; natura'lly  brought him into the Republican party  when it was organized, and in 1S62 he  \ was appointed a federal collector of  internal revenue by his personal friend,  .president Lincoln.

But-it  seems that other members of the association resented Mrs. Washington's absence from their reception, chiefly from   the���fact_that_she  attended   a si-nilar  function given by white women at fhe  Twentieth Century Club where her husband was a guest of honor. Mrs. Washington was elected vice-president, and  the- retiring president, Mrs. M. C. T-r  rell of the Harriet Beecher Stowe Ch-b  of Washington, was made, honorary  president.

From his  books and lectures Nansen has made a  fortune���not less than $100,000 in the  United States alone���and nearly as much  more in England, Germany, Sweden and  other European countries. His book has  been published in, four different languages and he receives a comfortable  income from the copyright. He has  purchased a handsome villa about four  miles from Christiana, where he lives  in fine style. In addition to his large  personal fortune, his Arctic achievement has given him a life position at the  head of a department in the University  of Christiana, recently, established with  an endowment of $270,000. The money  was raised by a lottery and private subscription.  ' *   *   ��  Martin Irons, who succeeded, through  the Knights of Labor, in tying up the  Gould railroad properties southwest of  St. Louis in 1SS6, had a meteoric career.  He was scarcely five feet six in height,  had stoop shoulders and'an unimpressive shock of dark red hair and was  representative of the lawless element  "among the strikers. He was opposed  by Terrence V. Powderly,. also in the  Knights of Labor,. who\ did not believe  in strikes where settlements could be  effected- otherwise. For a while Irons  was a great man. He not only made  considerable money, but occupied a great  deal of space in the newspapers and  printed his autobiography in one of  the current magazines. At this time he  was blindly worshiped by his men. When"  the strike failed, as it did signally, his  men would have nothing more to do  with him. ,:He wandered about the -West  and got into various troubles, among  which was his arrest in October, 1S94,  at Fort '.Worth,'" Texas, for attempted,  assault on a; seven-year-old child.- Recently lie died in poverty and disgrace.  Terrence V;,-Powderly,���;��� who opposed-  Irons, was high in the councils of the  'Knights'of Labor, but he said of strikes:  "I do not- believe in strikes, because I  do not think there is any necessity  for them." In the 'SOs Powderly had a  disagreement with John-W. Hayes, general secretary of;.the Knights.of-Labor:  he gradually--drew away from his former associate's and ih ythe campaign of  1S9G was stumping the country for McKinley. After the latter's election Powderly was rewarded by being made commissioner of immigration, a post which  he still holds.  Aggressive ..Davitt.

Mr. Davitt will  be here two months, speaking to Irish-  American societies in ten cities, the first  timo in Chicago, August 15th. "The Boer  .war is one of the most criminal enterprises  of modern times," said Mr. Davitt. "I-  consider general Roberts a meaner soldier than goneral Weyler. "With 10,000 more  men the Boers would have driven the  English into the Indian ocean. The war has  thus cost a billion pounds, and Is going on  at the rate of ��2,000,000 a week. The onlj-  issue is the Boer.war. The withdrawal of  70,000 infrantrymen means that the soldiers are unfit. The war will last another  year and will cost a billion and half  pounds. Lord Roberts has been voted ��100,-  000, but doesn't deserve 100,000 marks. He  imprisoned women to induce men to lay  down their arms, but the Boor men and  women will not give up.

S. Lennie on,behalf of the Chapleau company asked .for an extension of  another thirty days upon condition of the  payment of $3000.'.upon, account. This will  leave a balance of something like SSOOO, and  the request of the company's solicitor was  unanimously agreed lb.' The creditors are  now in a.'very good-position, as or? the balance of $S000 which "remains they have  something approaching to a security for  about half of the amount by reason of an  assignment from the company of the government's rebate on the construction of  the Chapleau wagon road. The only-thing  which, stands between- the creditors, and  the amount coming from this source is a  difference over accounts between the Chapleau company and ;C. Halifax Hall, the engineer employed in the building of the  ���road,.and there are said to be good chances  of effecting the' desired settlement.  *   *   ��� . '���'  N. F. McNaught of, Silverton and J. F.  McNaught of Spokane, are in Nelson in  connection with the litigation which has  cropped up over the Humpton group in the  Slocan. Some time ago the sheriff seized'  the inlerest of J. A.. MacKinnon in this  group to satisfy a judgment, but_a_fter_tlie.  Tleizufe'MTicKinnon allowed his interest to  '.lapse. Kor this reason'; the co-owner Mc-  "Naught claimed the interest by reversion  under the terms of the'mineral act. To  settle the question as to title to the MacKinnon interest between McNaught and  the judgment creditor's the sheriff has entered an interpleader which will come before judge Forin on Monday. .It Is an interesting point of law and the decision of  the court will bo awaited with interest.  ��� * ��  M. S. Logan of Rossland has returned  home after having settled up the monthly  accounts in connection with tho Juno development. Work upon the long crosscut  tunnel which the owners of the Juno are  driving to tholr ledge has been suspended  for the present by reason of the fact that  "Bob" Nlson, who had the contract for the  work has thrown "up the' contract. The tunnel is now In lliO feet aiid'lt is expected that  another 150 or 200 feet should cut the ledge,  the remaining distance being determined  in a measure by tho manner in which the  ledge Is standing, as it is dipping towards  the work. It Is understood that for the  past few weeks Nelson has been in very  hard rock, whicli it is said is1 his reason  for throwing up the work. The company  will let a new contract and expect to reach  the ledge in two months.  Mining Records,  Two locations were recorded at the Nelson record oflice yesterday.
