J. H. Fosburg was foreman of the gang. Bricks  and fragments of iron were thrown several blocks away. All the windows within several blocks were broken and nearly all the plate glass windows in tho village were shattered.  Nelson  Saw  and  Planing Mill Workmen Walk Out on Thoir De-  0    mands BeiDg Refused.  " The men employed in the. sawmill of  the Nolson Saw & Planing Mills Company walked out yesterday morning. On  Friday the sawmill hands delivered an  ultimatum to the company that unless  the company would agree to give them  a nine-hour day they would quit. -Yesterday   morning  the .men   wanted   an  answer from the company before they  ��� would go to work and as their request  was refused they quit in a body.    The  trouble only affects the "men employed  ���iin the sawmill., about 20 .all told.���'������-.  From inquiries mad*? of a member of.  the trades and labor council it appears  that the sawmill men are not organized,  and the members of this body therefore  know nothing of their differences with  the sawmill company.    The trades and  labor council has a council of conciliation,  but it is only called'upon to act  in' cases of disputes between employer?  and members of organized labor bodier  -.affiliated  with  the  council.    Itsofficef  W could  be secured  in  the  present trou-  ' bio,. but   only   in   tho. event   of   botl'  parties, to   the  dispute  agreeing to   be  bound  by  its  verdict    There is  some  prospect of the  trouble being adjusted  in this manner.  In speaking of the difficulty a promi-  . nent member" of .the Carpenters' Unior  \: said lie did not know that any one or  -'the'strikers was a member of his union  although ho did know that there were  members of tho union working in  the*  company's factory.   With respect to fac-  ,  tory work, however, the union had taker  rail the circumstances into consideratioi  ; in   passing   over  the   question   as   t'  ; the number of hours that the member:  jj   of the union might work per day.    Ii  all   contract  work  about   the  city   th'  carpenters.wore now working an oight-  , hour day/but the members of the uuioi ,  ���'��� employed in the local factory wero per-  Emitted  to  work  a ten-hour   day.     Th*  reason for this was that the local com-  ,  pany was obliged to meet the competition of mills which not only worked f  ten-hour day, but which in addition employed a very considerable .number oi  Chinese arid Japanese.    The oflicers o.<  -tne Carpenters' Union recognized that it  would  be asking impossibilities to  demand  an  eight-hour  day  for  the   employes of the local mill and at the sam(  time   expect  its  management to  meet  the competition of the big mills on thr  coast.      ...  :7 Charles Hillyer, president of the loca^  Vmillj was seen.   He said that the actior  of the employes of the sawmill in walk-  * ing out,   practically  without   warning  had forced the mill to close down  foi  the  day,   but he  expected  to  make  ;  "start today or tomorrow at the outside  His company, had no desire to seek :  quarrel vwith. the   labor   organizations  but the request made  was  one  whic!  it was ^utterly impossible to grant. Th  /T-comnany   had 'several   large   orders   t'  J*=f1_l^vhieh=had^been=secui*ed=in=compe=  titiori witli the other mills of the province,'the cost of which had been base:  upon a'ten-hour day, and  to  force *  nine-hour day would have but one ef  feet, the driving of the work done b>  the local company to other mills  les:  hampered by labor restrictions and mil!  in which.a very considerable percentag*  of the labor employed was Asiatic.   I  all the mills with which he had to com  pete would agree to a' nine or an eight  hour day it would make no difference t<  him.xbut.it was out of the cuestion fc  the local-mill to accept a reduced dn>  and then hope to compete with the mill:  of the Coast.   He thought he would no*  have any difficulty in replacing the mei  who had  ouit and was confident tha  he would be able to fill all the order  on time. .   South African Trade.  WASHINGTON, August 19.���Tlio stat  department has received a long repori  on conditions in South Africa from con  suL general Stowe at Cape Town datct.  a few days before his resignation wa*  received at the department. The war an<  plague, says Mr. Stowe, have preventet  1 the customs officials from collecting th  usual annual., statistics covering tin  trade for the colonies for the calanda;  year of 1900, and'assail imports for tin  use of the imperial- and colonial military forces are admitted free of duty i"  'is impossible to make a comparison witl  the trade of the preceding year. However, the figures available show that  the imports from the United States ii  1900 were greater .than those of JS9'.  and that this country still stands second among the nations exporting direc'  . to South Africa and in addition ships e  large amount of supplies via England  v    ���*���       Dynamite Explosion.  ; UTICA, N.

CINCINNATI, August 18.���Over 2000  carriage makers were notified by seven  shops '��� here last night that their services were not needed now and that the  places would open on September as nonunion shops. 'Following factories ��� were  closed: Itatterinan & Luth, Anchor Buggy Company, Lion Buggy Company,  Sayres & Scoville, George Enger Company, Hukay Buggy Company and the  Sotiter Carriage Company. Hundreds of  girl's and boys will also be thrown out  of,'-employment. Recently the - factories  combined under one incorporation and  announced that they would employ  whom they pleased, fix their own wage  scale, settle the matter of apprentices  and work piece work and contract system. At the American Buggy Company  and the Brown Carriage Company the  owners discharged, leading officials of  the carriage workers' union and replaced them with non-union men. On  last Wednesday the,. 300 employees of  this firm struck after submitting a proposal to the manufacturers, who referred  them to their" recent circular, stating  they would stand;by it.    .-."������      ���  THE  ILL-FATED ISLANDER  LOSS OF LTFE IS NOW PLACED AT  PORTY-TWO.

"PIERCE CITY, Mo., August 19.���-Wil'  Godley, a negro, was lynched by a mob  shortly after dark tonight for the murder of Miss Caralle Wild, whose dead  body was found today in the woods near  here. The mob went to; the jail about  9 o'clock and battered down the_doors  and-threw ropes around the necks of  Godley and Jean Carter, another suspect. Godley was hanged in front of  the hotel and his body riddled with bullets. Carter's guilt was not clearly established and he was taken back to'  the jail.

TORONTO, August 19.���The Toronto  Telegram, speaking of the trackmen's  strike, says: "The representatives" of  -the various organizations of workers on  the C. P. R. seem to be quite confident  that they could bring about peace with  honor if the alien boss of the strike  would put the reins in their hands for  24 hours. The position of ths GVP. R.  has been immensely strengthened and  the position of the irackmenvl-as been  greatly weakened by that .fine reuse of  dignity which will.not_p-?rmit president  Wilson to place the interests ct the  trackmen in the hands Of their fellow  Canadians, who represent the old'  branches of organized laoo'r on the C.  P.'.R." '   '  "  , MONTREAL, August 19.���The committee of trackmen here have-gprie some  way in following the advice of the board  of conciliation. It will be remembered  ,that the board in a preliminary report  . recommended that president Wison  should leave Montreal and not interfere  .with them (the trackmen's committee)  during the .negotiations with the company. Mr. Wilson refused to do this,  but the company has now ruined him.  down to the extent of appointing Mr.  =Balrerra=laWyer'from'tHe^  rickville, with whom all negotiations  are held.  v PITTSBURG, August 19.���The steel  managers made another gain over the  strikers today, when two. more mills at  the Painter plant were put in motion.  Thoy were started at 7 o'clock . and  brought the total number of mills in  operation in that property to four. They  claim that several of.their old men have  broken from tlie strikers and returned  to thoir. places. C. L. Harper, manager  of the property, said that he now had  200 men at work and that of the number about 50 were skilled men. He .says  that within a month the mill will be  running to its full capacity. The .steel  mill at Monessen.was not started this  morning, but the steel mill managers  say that it will be running before night.  The fires have been started and "every  ������reparation made for initial operations.  The steel managers also scored at the  Clark mill in this city today. They succeeded in starting the ten-inch mill with  ai (Inn crew of skilled men and with the  exception of the small cisht-inch mill  have every mill in the plant working.  According to superintendent Brown' five  more men "were taken on this morning  and he now states his force to be 600.  Colombia's Revolution. .,-,  KINGSTON, Jamaica, August 19.���The  British steamer Rosneath arrived here  today from Central American ports an  brought advices from Colon of continue-  and persistent attacks by the rebels on  the outskirts of Colon and Panama. Tb  repeated efforts on the part of the government to repulse the rebels have failed and the belief is gaining ground tha  the Colombian government is weakening.   When the Rosneath left Colon on  August 15th the French cruiser Suchet  was there and the arrival of British a"  American warships was anxiously awaited.    Business generally was crippled.

The official statement of,the number of deaths  is now 42.   Twenty-five men of the crew  and 30 of the Islander's passengers came  by the Farallon.    There is noT change  in the condition of affairs at the wreck.  Statements of the passengers show that  captain Foote did not commit suicide,  hut was exhausted and compelled to let  go his hold on the raft to which he had  been clinging.    He threw up his arms  and   his  life-belt slipped  as  he  sank.  Some  of  the   passengers   declare  that  there   was    no   justification   for    the  Islander to .have been running at full  speed through a thick fog.    She was  going 15 1-2 knots and when the passengers got; out on the deck they could  not. see^ more than a dozen feet;   Then  it is stated that if' lifeboats had been  better directed-and stood by the result  would have been different. A boat which  was built to carry 45 people left and  went ashore with as few as six or seven  persons,  another  with- 19.  when  there  were still many men in the water who  were so badly chilled  that they sank  and were drowned. ' Men were unable  to endure the terrible exposure.    Samuel Jamieson, one of the passengers arriving  this   afternoon,   graphically   describes the scene of the disaster after he  attempted to get aboard the raft:    "I  slipped down the rope and on to the  raft.   By this time the bow was sinking  and the stern was up in the air with  the propeller out.of water.    Then'the  stern began to sink.   I was hanging on  tho outer edge of the raft "and some of  the others may have been struck by the  propeller.   I was struck on the head by  the side, of,the steamer,as it glanced by,  but' was' not' badly   hurt.    The   bruise  mark is there yet, but I had a good hold  and a deep breath and down I went.  Wewere sucked a long way down. Then  the air in the cabin was apparently released, for I was tossed to the surface  .quicker than-1." went down.    The only  damage.I sustained was from a mouthful or two of salt water and some, bruises  to the ribs, and chest.   As we were going  down:. I could see the propeller above  me.    When I came, up .there were but  two of our party left, another man and  myself.    By this time there were men  all  around  us in the water.    Most of  them had life-belts.    Three more men  came up to get on the raft and we told  them   not   to   climb   on,   as   it   would  drown us all.   We told them to hold on  to it, which they did.   Finally one man  climbed on arid the raft upset and we  all were submerged again.    The two or  three who had been hanging on did not  come   up   again.   Then   we   gathered  sticks and helped keep the raft afloat.  Finally, we  got a heavy  door, which  was buoyant, and  other material  and  .had_severaLmen around ���ushanging_on_  to the wreckage.   By the time we were  relieved we had a couple of chairs and  some   other   light  furniture  and   managed to keep up.   It took a very strong  man to-withstand the conditions that  prevailed.   There were men who simply  had to give up after being but a minute or two in the icy water.   You could  not see any distance.   There were others  talking around and stray bits of conversations were ever and anon audible  through the thick. mantle of the fog.  I saw men even with life-belts on who  could not stand it-   A; man would be  trying to hold up, clinging to a piece  of  wreckage,  and  suddenly  he  won!  duck his  head..   There would  be two  or three bubbles and the body of the  man would float away with a part of  the back and a little bit of the life-belt  visible above the water.   Men died from  exhaustion and the sheer rigor of the  experience.   This accounts for the fact  that few - of the passengers who were  inthe water even with life-belts were  saved.    But the members of the crew,  who were hardier men, were many of  them picked up.   It speaks well for the  crew, for nearly all of them were dumped in the water and were among the  last to be picked up.    There was not  the slightest bad feeling or trouble and  little "excitement.    You   could   not  imagine a scene more coolly acted.   A man  would  swim up to his fellow and the  latter would tell him that if he grasped  the same wreckage he was holding.both  would sink.   The first.man would then  turn around to seek a scantling of his  own." '   .-    .  VICTORIA, August 19.���[By, Associated Press.]���Victorians are waiting  patiently for an official list of those who  lost their lives in the disaster which  overtook the steamer Islander, for although the list of dead has been reduced to 42 by the reports which reached  Vancouver this afternoon there are-still  a number of names which have not been  received here. ��� The day has been given  to a discussion of the accident. It is  said by some that it is quite possible  that the steamer struck on a rugged  reef which runs out from Tantallon  Point, as few icebergs are found in that  part of the sound, they mostly finding  their way out by Taku arm. But, it  must be remembered, that for every  foot of ice above water there are seven  feet under water and  it is sometimes  impossible for a navigator to see one.  All admit that by the time that captain  Foote reached  the bridge  it was  too  late to beach the vessel; in fact, it was  impossible, as the propeller was out of  water.   The crew, according to the evidence of all, acted splendidly and left'  the boats to the passengers, they themselves   being  satisfied   with  pieces   of  wreckage to cling to until picked up  by the boats.    Captain Foote did not  jump  from the raft,  but .was thrown  off it when  it" capsized  and he went  down, as he could not swim a stroke.  Some of the passengers acted most inhumanely, cutting the ropes as soon as  they got into the boats and pushing off  from the steamer. . The chief criticism  as to the operation of the steamer is  that she should have been slowed down  asisoon as it was found that she was  running, into ice.   ; '  ^SECOND OFFICER'S STATEMENT,  Second ofilcer Powell made the statement tonight that he and captain Foote  got on a raft after leaving the steamer,  which sank under them.    The "passengers on the raft badgered the captain  so that,he dropped off and got hold of  an oar, which kept him up until after  daylight, when he sank;    The second  officer was threatened with a, revolver  in the hands of one of the passengers  and slipped from the raft and got,on  to a cabin door,  from which he was  taken in the morning.   'The stewards  stayed with the steamer until she sank,  endeavoring to get the passengers out.  In fact, the second ^steward, remained  after,the vessel had sunk and was lost,-  being^drawn down as he was running  through the saloon waking the passengers  and  urging theriY to  save themselves.   When it is considered that 135  people were saved out of 170 in 17 minutes,  in which  time-the six lifeboats  and   four   life  rafts  were  successfully  launched, it shows that-splendid work,  was done by the crew.  ; Of the 23 men  in the steward's department only four  found places in the boats,' tho others  relying on such wreckage as they could  find,  as  the  engineers  and  othor  oflicers   had   done.      The- fact   that   the  Islander  was   well   supplied   with   lifebelts' made'it possible for many of the  passengers to remain afloat until picked up by the boats.  - 'THE PILOT'S STORY.  Pilot Leblanc, in charge of the steamer at the time she struck, says: "The  night- was fine and as we always expect  to meet ice a sharp lookout was kept.  About 2:48 a. m. the crash came. The  boat was under full speed and no ice  was in sight and there was no fog, but  the" wind was blowing and it was. dark  and cloudy. The fatal berg was, no  doubt, even with the water. After she  struck I stopped the engines, .when captain Foote. appeared witli the night  ��� watchman, who reported the ship leaking forward. I told captain Foote that  we had better head for the beach,' but  he demurred and when he decided to  do so the ship was taking water so  fast she would not answer her helm.  Then I called the mate and ordered the  boats out. This was done and they  were loaded with passengers. Many passengers jumped overboard with life preservers on. I jumped overboard and was  in the'water two hours and. a quarter  before securing a piece of wreckage."  The pilot said that many of the men  acted badly, attempting to jump into  the boats before they had been launched.  Had it not been for this crowding and  rushing of the boats he believed all  would have been saved, with the possible  exception of those who were unable to  or who did not get out of their staterooms, among whom were Andrew Keating and his soris, Arthur and Julius of  Los=Angeles..  NINETY-FIVE QUIT  WORK  BOTH SHIFTS AT THE ARLINGTON  GET THEIR TIME  The Men Say It Is All Because of Bad  Grub and a Hot-Headed  Foreman.  The crew, on the other hand, behaved  splendidly and looked to the safety of  the passengers. After the boats had  been launched the crew turned their attention to the rafts, but these also were  rushed and after they had been launched  some of the crew had to swim for the  wreckage, as there were too many on  the rafts. ,.He believes the vessel sank  in 23 fathoms and that the boiler did  not explode; that the woodwork was  carried away by a rush of water and  air. He figured that 42 persons were  drowned. - -  A BLACK-HILLS MYSTERY  Three Missing Boys.  DEADWOOD^ S. D., August 19.���Excitement is running, high in this part  of the Black Hills over the unearthing  today of the remains of a man three  miles south, of this city. About three  weeks ago an old miner named Ward .  created a great deal of talk by his actions towards three brothers, Lee, Kirk,  and Harley Shepherd. The old man professed to think a great deal of Harley,  the youngest, and promised him several  thousand dollars as soon as he reached  his majority. All three boys suddenly  disappeared and when questioned Ward  pretended to be broken up over the matter, Harley returned afterward, but there  were no signs of the two brothers. A  searching party went through the premises of Ward, but failed to find the boys.  Ward once'asked one of the searchers  what would be done to him if the bodies  of the missing boys were found on his  premises. When told that he would be  strung up he acted strangely. He went  with one of the searching parties to the  creek near his house and helped search  for the boys, but soon made the excuse  that he must return to the house and  has not been seen since that day. The  body found today was covered with  about two feet of earth in Ward's potato patch near the cabin. It is supposed  to be the body of Kirk Shepherd, one of  the-missing boys. The body was decomposed beyond recognition. A heavy reward will be offered immediately for  Ward's capture.  Trouble has developed, at the Arlington mine, seven miles from Slocan City.  According to the story of the men, many  of whom arrived at Nelson on-,"last  night's train, the trouble arose over the  board. A new: cook was employed on  the first of the month, and the meals  since (especially the breakfasts) have,  not been satisfactory to the men, and  there has.been riiore or less grumbling.  On Sunday night Dan Harrington, the  foreman, entered the mess-house, where  anumber'of the men were, and remarked: "If any of you men are dissatisfied  with the grub, you can call at the ofiice  and get your time." This the men construed as a case of "fire."  Yesterday morning the men, as was  their custom, went direct from the bunkhouse. to the mess-house, but'found the  doors locked. After standing around for  ten to fifteen minutes, some of them  started to leave. The doors were then  suddenly opened and the men Svho were  leaving were called back.- Harrington  was in the mess-house, and he again  told, fifteen to twenty of the men that  they could get their time at'the office.  The men "then went to the office to see  superintendent DuBois. He said that  some of them would have to go, and  made special reference to eight" men  from Rossland. Harrington,' who was  present, interrupted DuBois by saying:  "Make out the time for 50 of them; the  whole day shift."  Tho men withdrew from the office  and sent a messenger to Slocan City for  J. V. Purviance, the president of the  local Miners' Union. When he arrived,  DuBois refused to Fee him. The men  then appointed a committee of three to'  wait on DuBois, in order to try and adjust the difficulty. The committee was  told, that the'eight, Rossland'men. must  go. "This was reported to'the men, and  the eight from Rossland on'hearing the  report said they would willingly go  so that the others could remain at work.  This was not at all satisfactory to  Harrington,-the foreman, who insisted  the whole day shift (50 men) should  go. The day shift took Harrington at  his word, considered themselves discharged, and called for their time. The  night shift, on,hearing what the day  shift had done, concluded they did riot,  want any more of Mr. Harrington in  theirs, and they also quit. Every man  employed at the mine, except the cook's  crew and the oflico staff, quit. Even the  one man working on the road said he  wouid not stay and be called a "scab."  Ninety-five in. all went'down the hill  to Slocan City and "got their checks.  The men who are employed at erecting buildings are working for a contractor, and they remain at work.  In the afternoon a special meeting of  the Slocan City Miners' Union was held,  but what was done is not known to the  public. ..���'':������  Superintendent DuBois; it is said,  Aviretrf^NelsT>.-r?Or-^^  came on here. There is said to be more  or less friction between the superintendent and the managing director, and  in consequence of this^ friction things  have not been running smoothly at the  mine for some time.  to make Cascade his headquarters until  such time as a peace officer is permanently located here.

HAVANA, August IS.���Chief surgeon  Havard announced today that the experiments in the division of propogation of  yellow fever,,'so..far as these involved  the mosquito test, will be discontinued.  This decision was taken because one of  tlie nonininiunes, who was recently bitten by an infected mosquito, died of yellow fever today. The man, who was a  Spaniard, desired to become an immune  and therefore allowed himself to be bitten by an infected mosquito. Another  man, who was bitten, also suffered from  a very bad case. Both were bitten by  insects whicli had been set apart for  the experiments of Dr. Calda**, the Brazilian expert, arranging, to demonstrate  the alleged etneiency of serum as a preventive against yellow fever. According to major Havard the cases duo to  mosquito infection prior to the latest  two, were light, but the matter has assumed a more dangerous form than the  first experiment led the yellow fever  commission to expect. The experiments  of Dr. Caldaz have not begun.

Beamish made a lengthy address  to the' magistrate aud claimed there was  no evidence against him and that it was  a case of persecution because he had  been active in trying to bring certain  mine managers betore the court recently  for unlawfully having firearms in their  possession. T. M. Daly pressed for a conviction and the magistrate found the accused guilty and sentenced him to two  months in the Nelson jail with hard labor.

NORTHPORT, Wash., August 19.���  [Special to The Tribune.]���The smelter  strike situation continues practically  unchanged. About 200 men are working,  oiit of a normal force of 600. A few new  men straggle in occasionally and as  many of those at work are discharged or  quit work. Two furnaces are in operation, but the management are short of  experienced men and tappers and furnace men are at times compelled to work  IS hours out of the 24. The company  have apparently jumped out of the trying pan into the lire, as the new men are  rmoWinfncult-to���manage- thairthircrew  of union men who were locked out. The  general opinion is that Whittaker  Wright has far more to do with the  strike than have the local officials of  the Northport Smelting & Refining Company or the smeltcrmcns' union. There  has been no question at issue.of sufficient importance to cause any trouble  if the company had not wished trouble.  The strike has cost the union and its  members a great deal of money, but it  has cost the company far more. A conservative estimate ol the loss to thcni  would be $230,000, but it is thought that  Mr. Wright's London brokers have met  with success sutiicient to make him a  very rich man. It cannot well be otherwise than a very good speculation for  Mr. Wright, considering, the fact that  he wins alone, while any loss is distributed among the stocholders pro rata.  , ���_.

The cost of shipment is  smaller, the risk is less, and the time  required for making transactions has  been reduced by the use of the telegraph, the : ocean cable and the telephone. The larger the ownership of  foreign securities on a given market,  the more elastic is the cushion which  that market presents against sudden  shocks*" Foreign securities do not usually suffer impairment from the same  causes which affect domestic securities,  and they therefore represent in international transactions the most' perfect  substitute for money.  to  to  to  to  to  to  9\  9\  to  Established In Nelson 1890.  said Mr..Dooley.

The stock market offers the most effective safeguard today against unexpected demands upon the money market. By providing'a means of v exchange -_ which supplements metallic  money in international operations the  stock market gives to the money market that wonderful elasticity which  permits loans of hundreds of millions  to be floated without disturbance, and  j,yhlch_enabl_es���7the__largei7_markets__to_  resist catastrophes -*vyith. a firmness  and a readiness of rebound which  would not have been possible in transactions of such magnitude half a century ago.  Nothing can be more beautiful from  the standpoint of pure reasoning, and  nothing is more vital to the smooth  working of the great- machine of modern civilized life than this transfer of  capital through the mechanism of the  stock market. Let us suppose the volume of capital seeking investment,  both permanent and temporary, to be  as large as it is today, but without, any  common markets in which transferable  securities could be sold. Then what  would happen if a sudden demand for  money should fall upon London, Paris  or New York? If the entire demand  had,to be met in gold, or even in trade  bills of exchange, the result would be  a drain upon the market where- the  money was demanded which would result in convulsion upon convulsion, in  the impairment of values below any  point ever reached in a "stock market panic," and in. the paralysis of the  whole industrial mechanism of the country. Mills would stop and wages would  cease to be paid, because the commercial  banks would be called upon to denude themselves of gold and commercial  bills, so that they would hoard with the  tenacity of terror what ittle money they  had left. ���     -     . ���  How does the stock market avert such  dangers? Simply by substituting securities for money. If money becomes plentiful in a given market like New York,  the surplus gravitates to the stock market. This increases the offer of money  for securities, and the prices of securities rise. Such securities are then  drawn by the magnet of high prices  from other markets, where money is less  plentiful and prices are lower. The  money, in other words, is drawn from  the market where it is abundant to the  market where it is most needed. It becomes profitable to sell securities for  money where they bring a good price,  because the money obtained for them  can be lent at a high, rate in the market where it is scarce. The rate of interest for money thus co-operates with  the fluctuations in securities to maintain, in the supply of money and loanable capital, a balance which is the more  accurate in proportion to the ease with  Fort and Starboard.  The Marine Journal calls attention to  something which will not only interest^  seafaring men, but all who handle or  sail in boats. This is a movement on the  part of German shipowners to do away  with the terms "port" and "starboard."  The proposition is to substitute' for these  words "left" and "right," and to apply  them to the direction in which the head  of. the ship is to be turned. AU sailors  know that at present "starboard" means  the right hand of the ship looking forward, and "port" the left. But when  these terms are used as steering orders,  they refer to the helm, and not to the  ship's head.'To port the helm sends the  bow of the vessel to starboard, and to  starboard the' helm sends the, vessel to  port These orders' were brought ' into,  use in early days when the helmsman  had only a tiller to handle. All vessels  except small.yachts are now rigged with  a wheel for steering, and many of th'em  are so arranged that the wheel turns in  the same direction as the. bow of the  ship With such.a wheel the helmsman  who receives the order to port his helm  must turn the wheel-to the right.-It can  be readily understood that no matter  how skillful;the helmsman may.be, mistakes occasionaly- occur" with wheels  rigged to work "with the "ship's tiead/ahd  such mistakes-lead to collisions, sometimes with ��� serious' results. -The use of  the terms '-'right" and "left" applied 'to  the ship's head would make mistakes  of this sort impossible. .The terms "starboard" and "port" could; be retained if  desired, for such things as port tack or  starboard braces, but-: the probabilities  are that if "right" and "left" supersede  the present steering orders, they would  come into, general use for-everything on  a ship. As the Marine Journal wisely  remarks: "There is no reason for clinging to old terms and conditions on shipboard when; they can be simplified and  better understood through a .more apt  application of language or invention.

Railway Speed,  . The points of my argument as to the  further development:of the American locomotive as. a high speed and high power machine' are these: That a radically  new- locomotive is. not available for im-  mediate service; that railway officials  "Will-giv~e"pTomising_devices"fair_trialsr  and lastly, that the.field for radical improvement is exceedingly limited. Step  by step the present engine has been  raisd from 500 horse power to 1500 horse  power and more ih some cases, but, not  by means of startling novelties of any  kind. The chief improvement has been  secured through increasing the boiler  power from 150 pounds per square inch  which was the maximum fifteen years  ago to 200 pounds as a rule and 225  pounds to the square inch in some engines; but the steam distributing derails  remain just where they were -fifteen  years ago with some modifications in dimensions���none whatever in application. I believe that the cylindrical, corrugated fire box recently introduced by  Mr. Cornelius Vanderbilt has great possibilities in the direction of still higher  pressures, and in the direction of an advance; but higher pressure alone will  not increase average railway speed 20  per cent, and at least that is demanded  The greatest stumbling block is the line  itself, as it exists on most American railways, and it seems hopeless to expect  any improvement until the roadbeds of  the United States are constructed for  high speed. There is no object in build-,  ing high power locomotives to drag  trains up steep hills and around short,  curves, or upon gradients more or less  heavy, by brute force That is merely  burning the candle at both ends, for. it  increases the expense of maintenance  without 'correspondingly improving the  tion that the Germans were a trifle un-  ent is costly���and railway managers are  well aware of it.  English mod**l. The empress Frederick,  however, was certain that she could not  be mistaken, and she took her self-imposed duty in all. seriousness. It is probable that she did enlarge somewhat the  sphere of activity of the Berlin women.  Got them to doing things they had not  done before; made,them understand the  functions of a president, secretary and  treasurer. But the process was not pleasant for her. Bismarck believed, too,  that she mixed in srious politics too  much for Germany's good.Then her husband died and she was left without a  foothold.' By a not uncommon twist of  the feminine mind, she decided from the  first to regard herselfas a missionary sojourner in Germany; and this-is the position she has always held among the  German people, down to these last days,  of illness and finally death.  How Women "Stand By" Each Other.  Once in a while some Rip Van Winkle  wakens from his nap and gives utterance  to the venerabfe aphorism that women  do not stand by each other. There aie  actually a few specimens who believe in  this, but they are antediluvians. Theie  is nothing more certain, and few things  as obvious, than that women stand by  each other as never men have done, but  standing with- women" means more It  means standing by her babies, and providing a day nursery or creche for them  while,she stands, by somebody's wash-  tub. It means giving to-their baby fingers the beautiful employment ot the  kindergarten. It means teaching her  sons and daughters to do things as well  as know them, and it means establishing truancy, schools, better called parental schools, when her authority has  been worn threadbare. It means giving them a decent city to grow up in.  and furnishing public baths, libraries,  and gymnasiums, and "piecening out"���  as one poor woman expressedit���the  faulty homes that leave so :much to be  desired. It means girls' clubs and boys'  clubs; it means-women's and children's  .hospitals,-and home -for the' incmables  and for the old and helpless: To stand  by, to a-woman, means to supplant the  blue cow of eastern legend, or the tortoise or Atlas, and bear the world, not  only on one'S'head and shoulclsis, but  one's heart: as wcllv Nevertheless, all  over this 'world women are doing it,  quietly, and gladly without;sounding of  loud timbrels or blowing of trumpets.  It is reported that Kitchener is to be  recalled. If Roberts and Kitchener are  not able to wipe out Boer resistance  completely, it will be hard work to find  any other officers who are equal to the  task.  Try it. Ironbrew.

She went over  to Germany from England with the- notion that the Germans were a trifle uncivilized, and that they needed to be improved, and it was her duty to apply to  them a curative dose of English civilization. In a way this was Mr. Gladstone's view of Germany. He knew both  France and Italy well, and for him the  French and Italians were the two European nations in which a high civilization prevailed. As a matter of course,  the German women, and particularly the  Berlin women, did not agree that they  needed to be reformed according to the  B|adden House  Bakor and Ward  Streets,  Nelson.

Farwell has returned from a trip  to Revelstoke, where he has been look-  iilg: afterjUs.._townsite._.interests.--wliic_h^  "have been more or less tied up in litigation for the past 15 years. Matters  were supposed to have been Anally adjusted between the Dominion and provincial governments in December, 1895,  but the crown-grants for the lots in dispute are only comi**g to hand now, and  the almost hopeless tangle into which  affairs got has bred further trouble with  persons who squatted upon the property  in dispute. :  There was very little trouble with the  circus rounders yesterday. The police  gave the circus men to understand early  in the day that sharp practices would  not be tolerated and as a result there  was little complaint. The customary  gambling games were shut down as soon  as they were started up and the few who  reported short change at the circus "got  what was coming to them by making  the matter known to the police, as the  management of tlie show explained that  they were not looking for any police  court trouble.  John Schneider, a trusty employe at  the provincial jail in building a retaining ..wall, made his escape yesterday  morning while the circus parade was  passing the jail and his absence was not  noticed until the noon hour. Schneider  was a resident of Phoenix and had but  six days more to serve upon a six  months' sentence for being drunk and  .disorderly, so that it was not thought  that he would mako any attempt to escape. From remarks which he has made  within the past few days it is evident  that Schneider feared that upon his release he would be subjected to further  prosecution from the chief of police of  Phoenix and he evidently took French  leave of the institution to escape the  police officer of Phoenix. He left a gold  watch and chain and $12.50 in cash behind him.  The case against alderman Gillett,  who was charged in the police court  yesterday morning with a breach of (he  city by-law by the destruction of shade  trees, did not pan out as was expected.  When ttie matter was first reported by  tlie city oilicials it was made to apprvir  that the alderman had got hold of r.n  ax and felled the trees in question in  face of the protests of the foreman on  Nickel Mine Near Kettle Eiver.  MARCUS, Wash., August 17.���Among  the owners of the Orient mine there has  been considerable excitement during the  past-few days.    A rich strike was recently made, the. exact nature" of which  thoso in charge of the mine have been  endeavoring to keep quiet.   Some samples of the ore have recently been sent  to Wardner,  Idaho,  for assay.    However, it has leaked out that rich' tracings  of nickel have been disclosed.   Just how  extensive   .these .tracings -are   is   not  known, as those in a position to tell arc  resolutely silent,   The Orient is located  near Kettle river and is in the heart ot  the Kettle valley mineral zone.    Some  excellent prospects are located not far  from the well-known Little Giant property in Kettle valley.    All these prospects are located within what are known  as   the   "mineral   belt."    One  of  these  prospects is the Paul Kruger.'   Thus far  only about $500 has been expended in  development.    An  open  cut has   been  run in over 100 feet.   The lode is about  25 feet in width.   Some of tho samples  have  a showing of $92 per  ton.    The  surface showings are copper, gold, silver and leal.   At 25 foot depth the lode  gave a sample assay, of $36' in gold, silver and lead.   About two miles northwest of the- Little Giant are located the  group���King   William,   King   Solomon  and King George. ; About $3000 has been  expended on this group in the way of development���double compartment shaft,  buildings, hoist, etc.    The average assays of this group are about $40 per -ton.  The showings are gold, copper and sii-  =ver.==iExcelsior,=St.=Pati-ick=and===Giad-  stone  are  also  good   prospects.    This  group is located above the Deep Creek  falls, and within two"miles of the'Canadian Pacific railroad.   A tuniielnas been  run 124 feet into the Excelsior, with a  very fair showing.    The Glad'jtono and  St. Patrick are shortly io be further developed.   All these prospects named belong to  Gilbert K.  Kinnear  of  Kettle  river.   He has had' years of experience  in   mining,   and   has   every  confidence  that these prospects will develop  into  excellent properties.    Another promising prospect of this belt is the Montana,  which is located a short distance from  the First Thought mine.    A shaft SO  feet deep has been sunk.   The showing  thus far is very encouraging.  Michael  Cooper, formerly of Rossland, B, Q,, js  one of the principal owners,    Development work Is still in progress.    Work  is shortly to be reopened on the Scotia  and also the Champion.   Both of these  properties are situated on Toulon mountain, one and a half miles east of Kettle  river.   The claims are owned by a company.   Charles E. Hoffman of Spokane  is the superintendent.    A tunnel  over  100 feet has  been run;   also 'a 50-foot  shaft sunk.    Thus far the showing is  good.   The lode is claimed to be a continuation of the Orient ledge, whicli is  located  near the river.    It is the expressed  determination of the company  to place both the Scotia and Champion  on a shipping basis this.fall.
