Sensational Rumor Disposed of at Rossland--Sandon's Municipal Muddle.  Revelstoke Notes, Etc.  GRAND FORKS, August 13.���[Special  to The Tribune.]���A trail will be built  immediately from the forks of Kettle  river, 35 miles north of Grand Porks,  to the new North Fork coal fields, a  distance of 40 miles. The work will be  in charge of Joseph. Wiseman; who discovered coal in that locality less than a  month ago. Now that the Miner-Graves  syndicate has become interested, it is  expected that' the coal measures will be  opened up and developed this season.  Good progress in the work of enlarging the Granby smelter is being made.  Labor troubles in the United States,  however, have delayed the completion  of some of the machinery. One carload  of electrical machinery arrived this week  and two additional carloads with other  machinery is expected before Saturday.  The power house is being enlarged and  the extended foundations have been  completed. The power plant will be in-'  ,Creased by a 250 horse power horizontal  ���> turbine  water  wheel   and   a 250  horse  1/ power electric generator : directly .connected with tho water wheel, making a  total of S50 horse power developed for  the use of the smelter. This is exclusive of the 250 horse power developed  for the city of Grand. Forks, the total  power thus developed on the Kettle  river being 1090 horse power. There  will also be added an, additional triplex  power pump, which will supply an additional 750,000 gallons of water daily, for  granulating the slag and for the water  jackets. ; Th e enlargement of /tli e furnace building is also, in progress. It  will contain two furnaces, making the  total capacity"1300 tons daily. The new  No. 5 gyratory crusher in the sampling"  works willinerease the crushing capac-  ��� ity 1000 tons.daily. The converter, building now being erected will be a steel  fire-proof Structure 160xGS:. feet, its  height in the main portion being 35 feet.  The contract for its construction was  awarded to the Hamilton 'Bridge Company of Hamilton, Ontario. This building will contain two stands of converters of the horizontal barrel/type. The  shells will be 72 inches in diameter; by  \ .100 inches in length. Bach stand will  have three extra shells. This building  will contain a 40-ton electric traveling  crane for handling the shells and matte;  in another portion of the building will  be a 20-ton reverberatory tilting furnace.  In the same building there will also  be the quartz crushing plant and grinding pan for mixing the converter linings. Under each converter stand will  be three mold carriers and these will be  operated back and forth by a, hydraulic  ram. The converters as well as the  tilting furnace will also be operated by  hydraulic power. Near by the converter  building will be the engine room, in  ���which will be located the blowing engine for blowing the converters; also the  hydraulic pump which will furnish the  pressure   to   operate   the   various   ma-  ���chin es _A n^the-converter���building The,  blowing engine will be run by a belt  from a 20 horse power alternating motor. It is of. the power type, has an  air cylinder 36x36 inches and has a special unloading device attached so that  ���when the pressure reaches a maximum  of 12 pounds the valves are so arranged  - that they remain open and no power is  consumed when the converter is not  using air. This unloading device was  especially built for the Granby company and has never been used on any low  pressure blowing engine used for converter purposes.  Rossland Locals.  ROSSLAND, August 13.���[Special to  The Tribune.]���The coroner's jury in  the case of the late Mrs. Angus, wife of  the superintendent of the Josie mine,  who died last fall, reconvened today  after a month's adjournment to permit  of a report being made by the provincial analyst. The medical evidence  showed that the deceased died from  acute nephritis 'and a verdict was returned to that effect, effectually disposing of some malicious rumors which  ���were circulated here after the death of  the lady.  Connolly, foreman at the Le Roi smelter, was violently assaulted early this  morning by one of the non-union men  employed at the Northport smelter. The  furnace froze tip. during the night and  the foreman lost his temper and abused  the men, hence the assault. Other non-  linion men looked on at the fight, but  refused to interfere. No arrest was  made up to noon today.  The Horn assault case was adjourned  until Thursday. A vigorous objection  was made by defendant's counsel to  comments in the Miner on the pending  case. Thomas Beamish has been summoned for assault in connection with  the case. He is defending himself in  person and obtained an enlargement until Thursday.  Matters at Sandon.

LAID PEACEFULLY TO REST  BESIDE   THE   REMAINS   OF   HER  ROYAL CONSORT.  Last Rites Over the Body of the Dead  Empress Celebrated at Potsdam.  The Royal Mourners.  POTSDAM, August 13.���The remains  of the dowager empress Frederick were  interred today beside those of her husband in the mausoleum of Freidens-  kirche, near Potsdam.  Between 8 and 9 o'clock this morning  the bells of all the churches in Potsdam  were tolled with two intervals of rest.  Shortly before half-past 10 emperor William and the other members of the royal  family and the visiting princes assembled in, the royal hall at the Wild Park  railroad station. The high court officials,, military dignitaries, count von  Buelow and other members of the reichstag assembled at 10:25 o'clock in an  adjacent hall. Soon after 10 o'clock the  special train ordered by the emperor to  bring the invited guests from Berlin  reached the Wild Park station. Among  the guests the foreign ambassadors  made a striking figure, wearing their  highest official uniforms. At 10:30 the  signal was given that the funeral train  was approaching. Conversation, which  had been carried on in suppressed tones, ���  entirely ceased, and an air of great solemnity possessed the company. The  train rolled in slowly and noiselessly.  Twenty non-commissioned officers of the-  dowager empress' Hussar regiment No.  2 came forward and bore the coiiin to  the royal hearse, which had-in the meanwhile arrived from the new palace.  Chamberlains and courtiers with the  royal insignia participated in the transfer of the coffin from the funeral car to  the hearse. Slowly and solemnly the  procession formed. '.: Eight staff oflicers  seized the reins of the ei��"ht splendid"  black horses attached to the hearse and  four knights of the Black Eagle took  hold of the points of the pall cloth,  while 12 royal chamberlains held the  .support of the canopy covering the  hearse and four other courtiers held the  corners from the ground. Flanking  these to the right and left were two  staff oflicers and 12 captains. The procession formed in the shady avenue extending from Wild Park to the new palace. The public had their own opportunity to see the procession, but got  only the slightest view of it, and the immense crowds assembled oh the streets  intersecting the road at right angles  strained their necks to get a glimpse of  the cortege. The following was the order of the procession: .  A squadron of the line of the Guards  du Corps; a squadron of the dowager  empress' Hussar regiment; the band of  the Lehr infantry battalion; courtiers,  clergymen, pages and physicians of the  'dead dowager empress; the officers' corps  and a delegation from the dowager empress Frederick's infantry regiment;  four noble marshals bearing insignia  followed by general von Muschick, with  the dowager empress Frederick's foreign orders; general von der Hanitz,  with the Louisa order and the cross of  merit for women, and lieutenant general  baron von Loe, with the staff and chain  _of_the-Black_Eagle;_general von/Walder^  see, bearing the dowager empress Frederick's crown; numerous courtiers as  marshals; the dowager empress Frederick's ' courtiers and pages; the hearse;  emperor William, king Edward, the  crown prince Frederick William and  other royal princes and royal personages; the foreign ambassadors and ministers and personages from the emperor's  and empress' entourage; two noble marshals and princes belonging to the royal  family; the imperial chancellor; count  von Buelow and the other members of  the cabinet and government officials;  members of the order of the Black Eagle; members of the reichstag and of  the diet; the burgomasters of Berlin and  Potsdam.  The procession moved through the  tree-arched avenue to the new palace  and then through the park to the Sans  Sousi garden, all of which were closed  rigidly against the public, though a few  newspaper men wore admitted by card.  When the procession started the bells  in the Freidenskirche began tolling and  all the. other bells in Potsdam joined in.  When the procession reached the mausoleum adjacent to the Freidenskirche  all in the procession in advance of the  hearse took up a position opposite the  church. When the coffin was borne  across the threshold of the mausoleum  the cathedral choir from Berlin intoned  a solemn dirge. Only the emperor and  empress, the other members of the imperial family and king Edward, queen  Alexandra and the other members of  the British royal family and princes of  the highest rank entered the mausoleum,  which is small. Dr. Presus. the chaplain, offered a prayer, after which the  choir again sang. When their majesties  left the mausoleum the procession dissolved. The empress, queen Alexandra  and other ladies went in carriages direct  from Wild Park to the mausoleum.  LONDON, August 13.���A memorial  service was held today in the chapel  royal at St. James' palace, simultaneously with the funeral of the dowager empress Frederick at Potsdam. Among  those present were the duke and duchess  of Argyle, lord Salisbury, the United  States ambassador, Mr. Choate, sir William Vernon Harcourt and lady Harcourt, lord and lady Wolseley, lord Lansdowne, Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Chamberlain, A. J. Balfour and many members I  of the diplomatic corps. As the opening  sentences of the service were chanted a  royal salute was fired in St. James' park',  followed by the firing of CO minute guns.  Dispatches from all parts of tlie continent announce the celebration of memorial service in honor of the dowager  empress Frederick. Queen Wilhelmina,  her husband and the queen dowager of  Holland attended the service in the English church at The Hague. Services were  held at all the capitals of the German  states and were mostly attended by the  reigning princes.  BERLIN, August 13.���Tho correspondent of the Associated Press learns that  ambassador White's return here for the  funeral was upon the special invitation  of emperor William. After the services  at the mausoleum Mr. White was about  to withdraw with the other ambassadors, when the emperor sent for him  and expressed his warmest sympathy  with him, in his recent affliction. A  memorial service for the late dowager  empress Frederick, was held in the English church, which was built through  her.assistance. Present members of the  Anglo-American colony were present.  Mr. White's stay in the United States  will be only two weeks.  TOOK EVERYTHING IN SIGHT  FOULED BY THE CADILLAC  CANADA BOAT SCORES ANOTHER  EASY VICTORY.  Milwaukee, One of the Yachts in the  Trial Spins,  Tries  Conclusions  With the Invader.  PASSENGERS   AND  TRAIN   HELD  UP ON A TEXASJROAD.  Five Men Were in the Job and They  Overlooked Nothins���Blood-  hounds on Their Track.  DENISON, Texas, August 13.���Missouri, Kansas & Texas passenger train  No. 3, southbound, was held up atCaney  switch, I. T., at 1:30 a. m. today by five  men. Two miles north of Caney two  men crawled oyer the-/tender with pistols'in hand, covering the engineer.and  fireman, and commanded.,them to stop',  at Caney water tank.; The men' were  joined by three others and a fusilade.  of shots fired alongside the train, thoroughly arousing the crew and passengers. Postal clerk Tulley was compelled  to go through the train earring the sack  in which the. valuables were thrown.  Every passenger was robbed and then  the robbers turned their attention to the  express cars. Both safes,,were bl*ryn  open with dynamite and the... con teats  secured. The baggage car was practically wrecked. The amount stolen is  not yet known, although the robbers Lot  some valuable jewelry. They gave a diamond ring and "a shirt stud to-engineer  Tanham. After the work was done the  robbers, who seemed to enjoy the situa-  tion, sat around and laughed over ihe  matter. The whole affair, was -jarried  out without a hitch and it is belio mi  that the bandits were old hands at the  business. After holding the train two  hours the robbers left, going east into  the dense bottoms. The .trainmen cut  out the wrecked car and ran on to Caney  station, where they notified the oflicers  in both directions. Within two hours  posses of United States ' marshals with  bloodhounds were on the trail and it is  rumored two of them have been captured, but the rumor lacks verification. The express compauy claims  its loss is not known and conductor Nolan says the passenger*-' loss  is estimated at less than 81000. The  country surrounding Caney is gridironed  wjth telephone wires and if the robbers  "leave tlie^Uottoms they undoubTetny~wilV  be arrested or killed.  DENISON, Texas, August 13. ���J. L  Davis, deputy marshal at Colbert, I. T..  arrived here tonight from the sceao of  the robbery at Caney. Six iic.i have  been arrested on the charge of committing the robbery. These men were arrested at Caney and taken to Atoka  today. The operator at Caney, when he  heard the shooting, suspecting tlie train  was being held up, put out the ,.**.IH in  the depot and telegraphed to Atoka, 1 i.  miles away, for oflicers. Witnin two  hours after the robbery was committed,  bloodhounds had trailed these ui'jn to  their homes.  EASTERN    CANADIAN   WIRINGS.  ST. JOHNS, Quo., Augjst li}.���Hon.

P.., full olf the  train last night nonr Mngog, Ho was not  missed until tlie train had gone twonly-  livc miles. It was supposed that lie hail  been left behind nt Sherbrool-e. This  morning he was found lying beside the  track with a sprained ankle and bruises.  He was brought to the hospital hero.  CHICAGO, August 13.���The race started with an unfortunate occurrence which  caused flags of protest to be raised front  both yachts. The Cadillac crossed tire  line at 11 a. m. on the port tack, In-,  vader following a few seconds later on  the starboard tack, but so close were the  rivals that this maneuver forced the,,  Detroiter. to come about. As sh'e was  right on the ���> buoy the Invader fouled;  her, running/to Cadillac's starboard  quarter. Captain Jarvis hoisted the pro.-,  test flag and skipper Thompson, of the  Cadillac did likewise. At 11:04:30 Cadillac, after being spoken by the judges'  boat, turned back. At 11*20'invader,  about on port tack, ran to Cadillac arid  announced that-the Detroiter. had been  .disqualified by the. judges. Commodore Shaw, who was following- on,the-  yacht Truant, ordered captain ..Thompson to proceed over the course.' Thompson" started in-pursuit of Invader, which  by this time .was well ahead on-the port  tack. Cadillac held in shore; following  her second start at 12:06 and stood out  towards the fleeting Canadian. Invader  rounded the buoy at 12:28:23,- and there  she crossed the Cadillac's course. The  Detroiter turned about and. started back  for her moorings. The Milwaukee, having followed the course, took up the  race when the Cadillac dropped out, apparently to give the spectators a* taste  of what they came for. The judges worn  asked to give their reasons for disqualifying Cadillac; Judge Warner replied  that the Cadillac had fouled the Invader  and was therefore disqualified. He said  Cadillac had no ris-lit to the position  she held at the start.  CHICAGO, August 13.���William Hale  Thompson, the Cadillac's skipper, presented the Invader with the third race  of the international yachting match for  the. Canada's cup by fouling the Canadian boat.at the start, in full view of  -the- judges ;"and/m6st of the spectators.  Captain* Jarvis of the Invader declined  to fly his  flag,  but the judges  started  after the Cadillac and notified  captain  Thompson   that   they   had   disqualified  his  boat, ��� whereupon the  Cadillac  was  jibbed around and  left the race.    The  Invader sailed the course and was raced  by   the   Milwaukee,   the   Oshkosh   boat  that so hotly contested with the Cadillac the honor of defending the cup.   The  Invader  beat  the. Oshkosh  boat  handsomely at all points of sailing in a light  wind.    Captain Jarvis said ofter he got  ashore that he  felt no  satisfaction  in  getting a, cup race in this way,-but that  he was Diseased that his boat had had an  opportunity to beat the Cadillac's rival,  the Milwaukee.    Captain Thompson declined to say anything except that the  judges   had   disqualified   his   bout.     To  impartial    spectators    it   appeared    as  though the Canadian skipper had  outwitted   Thompson  and   that  the  latter  when he found that he was caught in a  trap with the buoy at one end  of the  starting line close under his lee and his  rival   with   the   right  of   way_ bearing  ~~iuowirTfpoh- liim7"t1TieTl_to_folic^ins_1vay-  through   instead   of  coming  about   the  Invader's stern. Captain Thompson came  down towards the buoy on the port tack,  meeting  the   Invader   on   the   opposite  tack  just  before   they  got to   the  line  and close to the buoy.   The Cadillac, of  course,    was    trapped    unless    captain  Thompson brought his boat about under  the Invader's stern.   If he tried to come  about on the starboard tack tinder the  Invader's lee he ran tho risk of fouling  cither the boat or the buoy as ho bore  around.   To lie forced to come about nnd  close under tlie Invader's stern right of  the line no doubt was a bitter pill  for  a racing skipper to havo to swallow, so  Thompson  elected   to  squeeze   through  where lie had no chance and the consequence was ho plainly fouled his rival.  Captain  Thompson  promptly luffed  his  boat to save her as much as possible and  one of the Cadillac's crew tried all  he  could to force the Invader off with his  hands.    The judges' boat soon weighed  anchor and the officials lost no time in  notifying Thompson that his boat was  disqualified.    At tliis juncture tho Milwaukee,  which  was  in  the attendance  fleet to leeward of tlie racers, wont about  and stood after tlie Invader.   It was not-  thought anything of at first, but when  it  became  apparent  that  the  Oshkosh  boat's purpose was to cut into an international cup race, even though the challenger was sailing over tlie course alone,  it was unfavorably commented upon on  every hand as a most unusual performance.   However, captain Jarvis soon saw  the intention of his would-be opponent.  He went in and beat the Milwaukee with  case, many of the spectators not knowing until the close of the race that die  Milwaukee   had   not   been   substituted.  Following are tlie bulletins:  FOUR "MILE CRIB, Lake Michigan,  August 1.3.���The gun starling the race  boomed at 11 n. m. The Invader crossed,  at 11:00:30, Cadillac a few seconds later.

Summary of the Situation and a Com-  ... plete List of the Various Steel  Plants Affected.  Printers' Convention,  7 BIRMINGHAM] Aii., August 13.���At  today's- session*of the 47th annual convention of the International Typographical Union, president Lynch submitted  a supplementary report regarding the  joint ownei-ship'of the label, as well as  the opinion of the attorneys of the International Typographical Union to the  effect that joint ownership of the label is  a legal impossibility. In view of recent  criticisms of the affairs of the Printers'  Home at Colorado Springs, trustee Mc-  Caffery asked for an investigation,  which request was submitted by president Lynch. A report cf the1 laws committee, looking to the practical separation of the stereotypers and clectro-  typers from the International Typographical Union was then' considered.  The committee made no recommendation. The proposition provides for complete autonomy of the stereotypers and  elcctrotypers in the district unions and  those employed in connection therewith.  The proposition was defeated at the convention last year.  COLOMBIANS ARETURBULENT  Make It W?.rm on the Ishmu-*  COLON, Colombia, Tuesday,, August  G.���[Correspondence of the Associated  Press.];���The political situation on the  isthmus has by no means improved and  there is a consequent feeling of uneasiness apparent on all sides. The government has taken no adequate steps to  prevent the rebels raiding the stations  along the railroads and as a result lhe  raids continue. Immunity from attack  has emboldened the rebels, small bodies  of whom have been seen at drillin the  daytime along the line and gunpowder  and dynamite belonging to the railroads  have been their late acquisition. In  view of the above the United States consul here, Mr. Malmros, cabled to Washington pointing out the necessity for  the immediate presence of a warship to  protect American interests in accordance  with treaty obligations.

In the matter of  population, so far as Colon is conci'iMcd,  certainly more than half are Americans.  In Panama there is a much larger ; '"*-  portion of Colombians, but even there  the bulk of trade is in the hands of foreigners.  The converted yacht Namouna, having been practically deserted by tlie  captain and crew that brought her over  from Italy, was eventually manned as  follows: The chief mate of a Norwegian steamer, the "Fri," who had been  confined in the calaboose several weeks  previous on the charge of misconduct,  was released and given command of the  vessel. The services of an engineer  were obtained and an altogether mixed  crew was placed on board. Manned as  above, the Namouna steamed out of the  harbor August -1 bound for Carthagcna.  It is said she was in search of reinforcements. General Alban, governor  of Panama, sailed on her and with him  is general Jeffries, an American, who  negotiated the purchase of the Namouna, now called the General Pinzon.  The government is trying to purchase  two or three steamers. As may be imagined, the Colombian government is  in great want of money at this moment. On this account it is not surprising that the ministers are availing  themselves of every means of raising  money. The lighthouse duties have  been increased, forced loans have been  raised and passenger passports at 50  cents must now be obtained by passengers before crossing the isthmus. With  reference to the Venezuelan complications, absolutely nothing is known here  of a definite nature beyond tlie broad  statement, believed on all sides, that  presidont Castro of Venezuela is giving the rebels moral support and even  more substantial aid. There are also  rumors of a declaration of war between  the two republics and of pitched battles  near the frontier, in which general  Uribe has been defeated and also victorious according to various versions.  PITTSBURG, "August 13.���Neither sido  moved decisively in tho great iudustiial  conflict between employers and employes  in the steel strike and the result is still  in the balance. The strikers made gains  in Pittsburg, McKeesport, Wheeling and  Bellaire in the last 24 .hours, but in  the main the advantage is still with  the mill owners. Both sides claim to  be preparing moves that will bring confusion to their opponents, but neither  side has shown its hand. Both sides  express their confidence in ultimate  victory, and are actively carrying forward their campaigns. The number of  men out as a result of the general order is now roughly estimated at 16,000  and on the three orders at 62,000. Many  strikers have found work in independent  mills or. at other occupations and many-  are idle merely because the steel .ten  are out.   According to an authoritative  a  announcement made today to a representative   of   the   Associated   Press   by  officials   of   the   American   Sheet   Steel  Company   the   destruction   of   auothsr  plant has been ordered by the steel corporation as a. result of the  refusal  of  the men to operate it.    This time it is'  the Charfers plant at Carnegie .hat is ,  to be dismantled.  PITTSBURG. August 13.���Complete  returns from all of the strike centers  have not been received today,' but as _  far as conditions show they indicate  that there has been but slight change in  conditions since yesterday. During the  night the strikers made further gains  from the National Tube Company nr. McKeesport and are somewhat stronger.  The Bellaire plant was closed last night,  but a determined attempt wil'/ be made  today-to operate it.  At a meeting last night th'e Riverside ���  steel workers at Wheeling voted to work  until September 7th, in observance .of.  their 30-day agreement with the National Tube Company. There are 500  mon at work in the Wheelinc district  mills of the United States Steel Corporation.  The strike situation early today is  briefly summarized as follows:  Lindsay & McCutcheon plant of ihe  American Steel Hoop Company���The  fires all lighted and the management declares that the plant will.soon be in full  operation.  Republic Iron Works���No effort is being made to start and no men are expected to work today. The fires in the  furnaces are banked.

August 13.���Tho house of  commons passed the factory bill to a  third reading last night after a debate  which arose out of the action of the  government in withdrawing a clause including laundries within tho scope of  the bill, because the Nationalists strongly objected to official inspection of the  Catholic conventional laundries on t.he  ground that such inspection would be  subversive of the discipline it is necessary to maintain in reformatory laundries conducted by nuns for fallen women. Mr. Ritchie, the home secretary,  and Mr. Balfour frankly admitted that  this concession was necessary, but many  of the supporters of the government  hotly denounced it as a surrender to  Trish obstruction. The Conservative papers today are angry at what is described as a cowardly surrender and  melancholy weakness.

Miners were paid $3.50 a day and  mine laborers  ?3.    They were charged  ?la day for board:-. Twelve years have  elapsed, and. what changes have been  made?   Are the miners and mine laborers getting higher wages, or are they  paying less for board?   If they are not,  ���what sense is there in publishing such  statements as the following, which appeared  in  the Rossland  Miner yesterday:    "Nearly all the investments are  .    "with   borrowed   capital.   Tom   Jones  *' goes tov England, Eastern  Canada or  '* elsewhere, and lie borrows ?250,000 to  *' invest in mining.   \He then buys ten  " prospects   at   an   average   of". $10,000  *-    " each (none too,much for the prospe'e-  - .." tor, who may have spent years of time;  "and  much  money   on their   claims).  "Jones next, expends $5000 on each in  " trails, bunlihouses, etc. He next spends  " $]0,000 on each (the last of his money),  "in machinery, tools, the feed of men,  " powder, etc., and out of the ten proper-  ���" ties he has found one that pays.   The  "moment this fact is known the miner  " -wants higher pay because the owner  "is making money.   The saloon keeper,  " the retailer/the customs manufacturer  " and tlie newspaper scribbler join the  "miner in the declaration the owner is  /"rolling in  wealth out of the money  *' made for him by the men, and no mat-  "'ter  what  restrictions,  obligations  or  V burdens are placed on him, he should  "be forced to meet them all without a  *' murmur."    The cost of living is apparently as much today as it was twelve  years ago, and the wages are no higher.  During all these twelve years there has  not been any effort made to raise wages,  hut there has been efforts made to re-  <l uce "tBemT^ffoTts^that^velrerf oFTrti BTe7  successful.    The   men   who   made   the  ���efforts to reduce'wages were "colonel"  XJcyton of Spokane, who made half a  million out of the Le Roi on an investment  of  a  shoestring,   and  consulting  engineer Harvey of the Hall Mines, Limited,,who, could see no reason why men  should be paid higher wages in British  Columbia than in Colorado, where he  ���was managing a mine.   These men were  "cheap" men, and had the wages been  553 a day instead of $3.50, they would  Siavc cut them just the same.   No; British Columbia has had a good class of  mine workers from the start; men who  "wore industrious, progressive, and law-  abiding; and if tho mining industry is  not as prosperous as it should be, no  blame can attach to the men who have*  ���done and are doing the actual ���work underground.

Old  camps,   like   Rossland,   are   having   no  attention paid  them;   but new  camps,  like the Lardo, are attracting attention,  for they have merit.    They have been  backward  in coming to  the front,  because of the lack of transportation facilities.   But before the end of the year,  fairly  good  shipping facilities  will   be  within  reach  of  that section of West  Kootenay   lying 'between  the  liead   of  Kootenay  lake   and  the  Bast Arm   of  Upper Arrow lake.    The mines in that  section of the district that have  been  opened up are most promising, and no  section of West Kootenay has as many  undeveloped promising prospects.  Revelstoke wants $800.0-for a-new public school building, bint the board of  school trustees and the city council  have been told to wait until next spring.  Rossland also wants a school building  and refuses to contribute a cent towards  its cost; but instead of telling them to  Avait until next spring, the minister of  education assures the authorities of tliat  city that the province Avill bear the bur-  den_ alone.

If you take a trip to Europe, and if  you want to smuggle valuables into  the country as you come back, look out  for the woman detective. She will meet  you on the dock in New York. She has  the reputation of,.'spotting.more smugglers than six male officers. Diamonds  and lace and millinery are her specialties. Her thinking machinery is arranged so that she can guess it if you  carry these things in the soles of your  shoes. The United States customs department emp*loys seven women detectives on its force of inspectors at steamship docks. They are" Mrs. Jennie Ferris, Misses E. C. Ellis, C. K. Allen, M.  F. McQueeny, Annie Walsh, W. W.  Clark and Mrs. Darragh. Taken together  they are the shrewdest corps of women  detectives in the world. They deal with  tia greater number of people in a short  ��ime and get the work done with less  ss than does a Mulberry street or a  otlancl Yards squad. A few days ago  Jpunday. World reporter watched the  ("cam of cabin passengers as it poured  ,f a big North German Lloyd steamer,  small, fair woman in a big hat, a veil,  ,_ summer silk dress and carrying the  JBnevitable feminine pocket-book in her  "hand stood near the inspectors on the  wharf. She was expecting Cousin Sue.  At least she said she was, and her gray  eyes bored through the clothes and  handbag of every woman that came off.  She said something to an inspector, the  inspoctor nodded, and off she walked  with a woman passenger. The woman  took it all quietly and with perfect good  humor. Her 1.0-year-old daughter trotted  along making various remarks which  were pert for a youngster. The woman  in th'e big hat nnd the summer silk dress  was a woman detective. She had picked  out a passenger who probably carried a  lot of uncut diamonds wliich she was5  going to dispose of to a western jewelry  house. The tip had come from the other  sido. After a thorough search of the  passenger, even to the ribbons on her  hat. the detective remained mystified.  "Now are you convinced?" smiled, the  passenger. '-.'-'.  Tlie woman detective was not convinced but puzzled.  "I suppose you ain't searched the  soap?" interjected the pert child.  "Thank you, I will," said the detective. She broke open a bar of soap in  the handbag and out rolled a wad of  valuable diamonds. " The woman said-  afterward that the child had no idea  where the jewels were hidden, but  spoke entirely at random.  "'The mere fact that we employ seven  shrewd women detectives prevents  thousands of dollars' worth of smuggling annually," said colonel Story, head  of the bureau.  "If it were not known among would-  ���o he smugglers they might employ women  all the time to bring valuables over.  We find the women very capable and  faithful, and extremely observing. They  always notice when a woman's frock  sets as if it had yards of lace sewed in  it. One of them orice dug a lot of rings  =-oiit=of-an-innocent=A'elvet=liat.=J3ustles,=  I recollect, used to exasperate our women detectives when that article of  feminine apparel was fashionable. If  it ever comes back in style I imagine  they will bribe Paris dressmakers to  down it. All sorts of valuables were  smuggled in bustles, and of course you  can't search everybody." -  The woman detective at the docks has  a fairly easy time of it._ She stays at  home and does crochet work or reads  until an ocean liner strikes Quarantine.  Then headquarters sends her a telegram  that, the Oceanic, or . the Kaiser Wilhelm, or whatever it is, will make its  pier at a certain hour. , Then the  woman detective puts on her bonnet and  jroes down and inspects passengers.  Each detective has a certain number of  steamship lines which she must meet.  As nearly as possible she chooses her  own lines and keeps them from season  to season. On the average she meets  a steamer a day. She is likely to he  called at" almost any hour from 0 in the  morning until 9 at night.. She gets her  position through civil service appointment and knows the customs regulations  by heart. She receives a good salary  and makes a pretty penny on commission.  Very few passengers who make perhaps as many as a half dozen trips to  Europe in a year, know any of the  women detectives by sight. To professionals they are pretty well known, and  they are thoroughly feared. Mrs. Jennie  Ferris, the dean of the women's detective corps, has been in the service for  - 35 years.   P.izzled Judges.  Presumption of survivorship constitutes a very knotty point which comes  up for solution from time to time in law  cases. If two or more relatives, heirs  to each other, perish in one common accident��� e. g., shipwreck, fire or a falling building���and no evidence is forthcoming as to which was the last to die,  the question of survivorship, important  to the executors of each, has to be decided on purely presumptive grounds  and the arguments brought forward  when such cases come into court are  often in the highest degree ingenious  and interesting.  A few examples, culled from the rec-  THE CANADIAN  BANK OF COMMERCE  WITH WHICH IS AMALGAMATED  THE  BANK OF  BRITISH COLUMBIA.  HEAD OFFICE: TORONTO.

HOLT,  Manager Nelson Brunch. ��  ords- of the last uiree centuries, are  well worth consideration, says the London Mail. In 1629 a French lady and  her little four-year-old daughter were  drowned in the River Loire. Some important property was involved,,and, on  appeal, the parliament of Paris decided  that the (laughter succumbed 'first, being by far the weaker of the two parlies. On the other hand, a case, also in  France, was decided in a contrary way  only a year later. A mother and two  children of tender years were murdered  in the dead of night. The widower  claimed his wife's property on the  ground that the children had survived  their mother, and the property was adjudged to him, the argument admitted  being that the murderer would first  dispatch the victim he feared most.  A singular case was recorded in 165S.  A father and son, fighting in the French  army, which, in alliance with that, of  Cromwell, defeated the Spaniards at the  battle of the Dunes, fell during the engagement, which commenced at noon.  A daughter of the father, on the same  day at noon, became a nun, thereby rendering herself dead in law, -and the  court had to settle which of the three  survived. It decided: (1) That the  daughter died (in law) first, because her  vow, being voluntary, was consummated  instantaneously, whereas her father's  and her brother's wounds were not necessarily immediately fatal; .(2).that the  father, not having the physical powers  of-resistance possessed by the son, died  before him; (3) that the son therefore  survived. A case somewhat similar to  the last came on in the English court  of ��� chancery 15 years later. . General  Stanwix, his second wife, and his only  daughter by his first wife were drowned  in a shipwreck in the Irish channel. A  nephew of the geueral (on the mother's  side), as heir to the daughter, did likewise, and a representative of the second wife also claimed;   v      .        -       '"  On behalf of the general's heir it was  argued that, the ship having -foundered  in a storm, the general was probably  on deck; and his wife and daughter,  being probably below, would be drowned  first. .-������Counsel' for the daughter's heir  urged that the eeneral was old, and  consequently feeble, while,the daughter  was of particularly, strong .constitution  and nerve, and counsel for the wife's  heir brought arguments as to the probability of the wife's having been the last  to expire.  Not a soul -was saved, and there was,  therefore, no shred of evidence as to the  incidents of the disaster, and the case  was so complicated that the court, in despair of arriving at a conclusion, advised a compromise between the parties, which was eventually adopted.  Where drowning has been the cause of  death, the fact that one of' the parties  and not the otlier could swim is sometimes adduced, and the height of ingenuity was; perhaps, reached by the  executors of a lady drowned with her  husband, when they contended that in  his efforts to save his wife the man  doubtless exhausted himself and so sank  lirst. . ���  Cases such as these continue to arise  not infrequently, and, although they are  usually settled without going into court,  it is felt that it would be an advantage  if the law on the subject were more  clear than it is at present.  Ut- o-Date Journalism.  Local Chinese journalism is getting a  wiggle cm. Once upon a time it"was "yellow" from age and exposure on the dead  walls of Chinatown. As the years pass-'  ed it got a Melican hand press, an occasional 'ream of paper and issued daily.  Now, probably because the Chinese  stomach has a fondness for pork, it has  gone the whole hog. Counting: from  Friday afternoon its motto will be "Hoo-  Pla," which is the Manchu equivalent  of "Get there," illustrated with half  tones. Apparently provocation was all  tliat was necessary to stir the Chinese  journalistic stumps. It came with the  murder early yesterday morning in Ross  alley of Gee Chung, a cook. Ng Poon  Chew, managing editor of the "Chung  Sai Yet Po," a Chinese newspaper published at 804 Sacramento street, saw his  opportunity. He detailed on the case  his entire editorial staff of two reporters  and a photographer. The result of their  efforts appeared during the afternoon on  the first page of "Chung Sai Yet Po."  All Chinatown looked and wondered.  Many doubted their eyes and dusted  their spectacles. Yes, sure enough there  it was, something unheard of in the  quarter, unseen before in a Chinese  journal���a half-tone photograph of the  murdered man. Above it all, the legend,  "Hoo-Pla," which means "Get there."  Extras sold like fish on a Friday. The  circulation of "Chung Sai Yet Po" went  up 500 in an hour. Ng Poon Chew made  money. Incidentally, in addition to this  great feat of modern journalism, his  stall! had gathered many facts concerning the tragedy. In the most exasperating of Chinese characters they told that  early Friday morning Gee Chung, a 19-  year-old boy, residing at 644 Commercial  street, was shot and killed by highbinders while mounting the stairs of a gambling house at 9 Ross alley. Eight shots  were fired, three of which entered the  body of the boy.  "Chung Sai Yet Po" then tells the  story of eye-witnesses, who stated that  the shots were fired by two Chinese  boys, small of stature, each about 17  years old. Ng Poon Chew, the managing editor of "Chung Sai Yet Po," is an  Americanized Chinaman. In speaking  of Ms enterprise he said:    "We try to  IMPERIAL BAM  o:f  o-A.:isr.A.:D.A.

How   much   heat   can   a   human   being  stand? Thousands of New Yorkers asked  themselves   this   when   the   thermometers  on  Broadway  registered 102 degrees.  The  .system   of   a   normal   person   can   endurs  twice that much. It is quite poslble to tone  it up to withstand fiOO degrees of heat. Nowhere In the world does the solar heat begin to approach man's capacity for resistance. Iri Death Velley, Cal., the thermometer   has   registered   140   degrees   Fahrenheit. The ordinary man can and does adjust  himself to  the climate in  safety.  Stokers  In big steamships work ln an average temperature of from 100 to ISO degrees. In the  boiler  room   of  a  dozen  buildings  in   tho  skyscraper district the heat from the boilers Is Intense enough to cook an egg hard  in ten minutes if it is laid on the iloor six  feet away from the furnace. Firemen work  in this atmosphere year after year without  visible harm. AVomen walk in the-ovens of  the La Rouehefoucauld bakeries of France  when   the   ovens   are   heated  103   degrees.  Colored races can endure more heat than  white racesv The educated freak, Chatrort,  the Fire King, used to enter, an oven which  ranged from 400 to GOO degrees Fahrenheit.  A common modern remedy for rheumatism  is in the baking of the body in an asbestos  tub heated-at" 225 degrees.  Nobody knows  what   takes   place   in   the   human   systam  under stress of sunstroke. Dr. Sambon of  London,  the  greatest  authority  upon  the  question,  pronounces  sunstroke  an   infectious disease. He-says it is due to a mierj-  organism.  True sunstroke,  says Dr.  Sambon, is unknown in Europe. It does not. occur in Central America, or the high; table  lands  of  the: United   States.   The  limit  of  what one may endure in the way.of solar  heat,is, of course, ho.veyer| far from that  at which normal health ��s more or less in  danger. The doctors declare that anything  above So degrees  in a temperate  climate,  such as that which New York is supposed  to enjoy, constitutes a menace. The chief  reason for this Is, naturally, that the human system in the temperate zones is not  acclimated to so fierce a temperature and  has no chance to become sb owing to the  comparatively short duration of the heated  periods.  Possibilities of Hypnotism.  If Charles Jones should die, as he believes he will, from some murdoious hypnotic Influence exeited by Albert Patilck,  the unpleasant thorny of tho posslbrlrty  of "hypnotic suicide" will have received  some confirmation. According to Dr. John  D-. Quackenbos, "There issuch a thing as  compulsory hypnotism, which can be applied to any person without his consent.  It is possible to break a human will as  you might break a vase. Can murderers  avail themselves of this frightful, intangible weapon of death? Can one man, wish-  iing=anothe��s^deatli,^ciiiiningly=plotUo^av.oid=  the incriminating aids of knife or pistol or  poison and by fiendishly concentrating his  evil thoughts kill his distant victim without moving from his chair? This hideous  possibility has often been suggested, but  from its very nature is practically impossible to prove. Dr. Spltzka, however, claims  to have known in Europe many mysterious  daaths which he explained in just this  fashion. Dr. George Shrady told not long-  ago of a case in Hamburg, Germany, where  a young wife, whos") life was insured for  a large sum in her husband's favor, was  beset by hallucinations compelling her to  kill herself. It was finally discovered that  her husband bad hypnotized her and commanded her while in a trance to poison  herself at tha expiration of a certain time.  -"Unquestionably suicide Is often communicated from one morbid mind to another," says Dr. John H. Gird ner. The case  some three years ago of Miss Leila Herbert, daughter of the secretary of tho  navy, Is well remembered. It may not be  as well known, however, that Miss Herbert'!* death was immediately followed by  that of her most Intlmat= ..riend, Miss Anna  Wells. Miss Wells shot herself in less than  a week after the death of her friend. In  this case it was not hypnotic suicide, but  suicide by suggestion, another curious  phase of this mysterious subject. "There  is- a communicableness of suicidal emotion," says Dr. M. Eleazearlan. "Not a few  susceptible natures are subject to the wills  of others to such a degree that they may  be led to attempt suicide through an impulse ill-definable and scarcely understood  by the most learned."

Arlington Mine Will Ship 1000 Tons  of High Grade Silver Ore Per Month  to the Nelson 8melter.  Robert Ewart, who for several year's was  identified with the development of the  Poorman mine before it nasseil into the  possession of the Duncan Mines, was at  lhe Hume yesterday for the purpose of  making- tho final payment on the bond  which he and A. 1-.. Davenport have upon  the Keystone group of claims, the bill of  sale upon which passing the title to the  property to A. L. Davenport was recorded  in the Nelson record oflico yesterday, the  consideration 'for which is given, as !"L'0,aOU.  The Keystone group is situated about a  mile to the right of the well known Arlington property, which is being developed  by the Hastings (B. C.) Exploration Syndicate. "Mi*. Davenport has held a bond up-  o i the group L'or tho past year, during  which period upwards of ?10,O0U have been  spent in its development. Jt is a gold bearing property arrd tho ore appears to be  very similar in character to that from the  Arlington, so that tho owners of the Keystone will be able to profit by the experiments in treatment; now being; made by the  Arlington people. Tho work clone upon the  property up to date shows the Keystone  ledge to vary In width from three to six  feet, iu which consldoraole quantities of  ore occur sufficiently rich to stand shipment in the crude state. The development  done upon the property consists chiclly  of a crosscut tunnel run" iri for a distance  of 300 feet which gives a-vertical depth .of  150 feet where it cuts the lead, and a shaft  which has been sunk for 100 feet. Messrs.  Ewart and Davenport" are developing "the  group for a syndicate of Spokane men, to  whom they have given an option upon the  property and their object at present is to  merely open it up without regard to present shipments. The vendors of tho group  to  Messrs.  Ewart and  Davenport wero C.  T2r^Iilfd"TfHa=Tr=shmti5^vBrTh7     ^ ~  Arlington's Eig Shimnents  W. F. Dubois,, superintendent of the Arlington mine on Springer creek, was a guest  at the Phair yesterday. Work at tho Arlington is now being pushed ahead as rapidly as possible and arrangements have been  miido for the shipping of 1000 tons per  month, The product of tho Arlington is a  dry ore with high values in silver and not  more limn sis per Cent lead. The Arlington and Speculator' groups arc being developed by practically .the samo people and  the present outlook is tjiat. In these two  (���roups they will have the greatest (Iry oro  producers in .the province. Tho Arlington  lodge has been traced .through six of tho  claims and a depth of SOU feet has boen  rittiUnod In its development. As the Arlington ledge has a width of in foet with  tho ore more or less scattered through It  tlio cost of working Is somewhat greater  than met with in the development of other  properties, but tho values ol' llio oro are  so uniformly high that this does not materially affect the working of the properly.  All loid thero are at present something like  ISO men employed upon the two properties,  but when tho Arlington enters upon Its  i*|*csent contract to supply the local smelter  it ��'(),*!sjtlerablo addition will be mado to the  Working t'orpe. Upon U*is group there is a  heavy payment t;) be made within a month  and although the holders of the bond arc  naturally reticent in regard to It, it is generally understood that tho payment will  be. met.  Highlander Pleases Hiin  Maxwell Stevenson of Philadelphia, who  Is one of the heaviest holders of stock in  the Highlander mine, was at the ''hair yesterday, having but recently returned from  a trip of Inspection to the Ainsworth. property in tho development of which he  showed so much nerve by driving the long  working tunnel which cut the main Highlander vein at a. depth of something like  3200 feet. Mr-. Stevenson expressed himself  as highly pleased with the manner in  whicli Iho properly has developed. The  drift on llm footwall has now been run In  for a distance of MO feet and h:is opened  UP a continuous eh uio of ore which in extent has few if nny equals in the province.  Tills In Itseir is a big thing, as this ore  body varies ill width from three to six feet.  But it is not from this portion of the mammoth ledge that the owners of the Highlander expect to get their greatest results.  In the upper wordings of the property tho  ore upon this wall has been their low  grade product, while the ore upon the other  wall has been uniformly high in. silver with  considerable values in gold as well. This  fact in a measure accounts for the circumstance that up to the present no attempt  has been made to accurately arrive at the  probable average value of the ore on the  footwall. From the end of this 110 foot  drift a crosscut is now being run to prospect tlie hanging, wall side of the ledge.  This will have to be run a distance of 50  odd feet, but the' formation of the big  ledge has so far conformed so closely with  what was expected of it from the work  done in the upper workings that the management are confident that they will have  somo very good news.for their shareholders when the hangingwall is reached. In  speaking of the copper values which were  indicated by the diamond drill borings, "Mr.  Stevenson explained that these were nol  ���secured from the big ledge but from a blind  ledge wliich was cut in driving the main  tunnel. This was naturally very pleasing,  but where the blind ledge was passed with  the main tunnel tho showing was not very  large and'at the time it was not considered sufliciently important to divert from  Iho original program of driving for the  Highlander ledge. This ledge will be explored, however,' when the work at present in hand is completed. 7  As to the report which was current that  work on the Highlander would be shut down  Mr. Stevenson said it was all news to him.  In his opinion the only immediate shutdown in store for the property was  such as might be occasioned in putting in  the tramway. As to the program of tho  Highlander company Mr. Stevenson' said,  lie was not prepared to speak, as since going upon the bench he had retired from the  presidency of the company and was now  simply a shareholder. The property was in  shape to commence shipments at once, but  it would remain for the .directors to determine their own line of action. There was  one factor, however, which they would  probably consider and this was the low-  price of lead. At present quotations it was  very much like giving the lead away and  the general opinion was that with the resumption of trade with China a very material betterment -vviil result to the lead  market. ���        ,       .  High Grade Lardeau Ore.  ^^Viidrcrw^^erguson o'f~FeT*-*tfsT3Hj otic-of"  the owners of the famous Triune mine in  the Lardeau, was at the Hume yesterday  on his way home from the Trail smelter  whore ho has been looking after a ship-  . ment of two cars of ore, wheih were worth  close upon S5000 per car. Mr. Ferguson says  this is the first of the season's shipments,  the total of which it is expected will reach  200 tons. Tlie Triune is differently situated  from most of the properties in the J-.C-.������  deau in that it is obliged to work in tlio  summer and shut down In the winter, it  being impossible to move tho ore out in  rawhides as is usually done. To remove  this liadicap lo working It will be necessary to put In a tramway, and tills Is now  receiving attention,  Mr. Ferguson says the Lardeau Is at  present experiencing the liveliest time in  Us history and as a result there has becrr  considerable building in" Ferguson. This  townsite was staked by his brother and he  naturally regards it as the coming town  of (he Lardeau. While in Trail Mr. Ferguson was given to understand that the  C. P. H. Lardo branch would bo completed  to the southern end of Trout lake by the  1st; of November. This will come as a surprise to those who have been over the  work;- but the railway people may have a  card up their sleeve by which they count  on making better progress than seems possible at present. The completion of the  road to this point will cut the present team  haul on Lardeau ores in two and should  result in the saving of at least $V2 in transport charges, and if the mine owners were  sure that the railway people, could carry  out their program they would team their  ore to Trout Lake instead of to Thompson's Landing as at present.

The claims are in Nelson mining division for registration, but in  Slocan riding for appropriations.

M. R. band Is having some difli-  sulty in reconciling Its affiliation with the  Federation of American Musicians with Its  standing as a Canadian militia band. For  several days the band was advertising itself  as a Canadian militia organization with a  spread eagle holding a couple of j\.merican-  Hags. The idea was so absurd that the  notice of the oflicers was called to the  matter. This has had the effect of dropping tlie eagle and American Hags from  the band advertisements.  ��   ��   �� "*  Tlie police are on the lookout for a Chinese market gardener who has a small  garden In the vicinity of the city stables.  The Chinaman has complained that he has  suffered from thefts from his garden and  the olher night ho took matters into his  own hands and appeared on the scene  armed with a gun and a large knife with  whicli he professed his intention of llxlng  anyone who might visit his garden. The  police will lay complaint against the Chinaman for carrying offensive weapons,  *   *   *  Robert McMahon, the barber, pleaded  guilty in the police court yesterday to the  charge of violating the provisions of Bylaw No. 52, which makes it an offence for  a barber to shave anyone on Sunday. This  made it easy for the mayor, who was upon  the bench, and he simply taxed McMahon  the costs and let him go. Had the case  been fought it is difficult-to say just how  It would have ended, as It Is an open question as to whether the provincial legislature has tho power to authorize municipal  councils to deal with the closing of barber shops, and the latest decision of Mr.  Justice Irving upon the matter is that the  fact that there are persons in a barber  shop during prohibited hours is not conclusive evidence that the barber in question has his shop open within the meaning  of the law.  (V ���  "   *   *  ^   The trouble between  the contractors for-  the postoflice building and the men employed in the marble quarry a' Kaslo has  been patched up. The trouble arose through I  tile efforts of tho contractors to work them  nine hours instead of eight. This was rectified, but in order to got ti'cu with the men  for bucking the contractors undertook to  charge them $1.50 per day for board. This  was resented by tlie men and unless redress was given they threatened to call  all union men off the jobtvoh gnoohc Lli  all the union men off tho building in this  city. This had the desired effect and the  matter was soon satisfactorily arranged.
