 u.  ESTABLISHED   1892  ii  MONDAY'-.MOBNIN'.Q,- AUGUST  19,   1901  DAILY  EDITION"  BRITISH   COLUMBIA  NEWS  THERE   IS   JOY   IN   THE   M'DON-  ALD CAMP  Over the Non-Arrival of Definite News  From London���Strike Matters.  General News Notes.  > ROSSLAND, August IS���[Special to  The Tribune.]���The non-arrival of definite news from London of the ousting of  the Whitaker-Wright outfit from the Le  Roi control has caused great joy to Bernard McDonald and his paper, the Rossland Miner, as the manager fully expected bad news on Friday. What appears to have'happened in England has  been a further postponement of the Le  Roi meeting without any action being  taken meantime. It is not thought probable' here that the Whitaker-Wright  crowd can no longer retain control in  one Le Roi group and if a new directorate is formed and representatives are  sent to Rossland to report on the situation it will probably mean a settlement  of the labor troubles here and at North-  [,, port, and, of course, in McDonald's retirement of the management.  There has been no strike news of moT  mont today.   Between 30 and -10 of the  i<     non-union employes have left the smelter at Northport during the past week  and no new arrivals have come.  Smoke from bush fires has- been very  much in evidence all day.  A representative of one af the insurance companies doing business here has  suggested a withdrawal of all the companies "during the strike, but such outrageously high "premiums are always  paid  here  that no such step  is  at all  probable.    ~"~~~~~~*���"* '  Ymir Gossip.  0      YMIR,  August .18.���The 'Ladies'   Aid  Society of the Kirk held a two-day "at  '   home" in the dining room of the Hotel  . Ymir Friday and Saturday. Ice cream  and cake we're served to those who had  1 the price. The proceeds go to the building fund of the church. Judging by the  number who indulged in the cooling refreshments, the Kirk, must have had  quite a rake-off. It "'do beat the band"  tho gland hand one gets at ice cream socials.

Serious bush fires are raging in Eagle  pass, west of town.  A.non-union bridge crew started yesterday to repair the burned trestle work-  on the Nakusp & Slocan branch.- The  government is calling for tenders or  the Fish Creek wagon road in mile sections.

News Items From Greenwood  GREENWOOD,-August 17��� [S;e3ial tc  The Tribune.���Bush fires are raging in  several parts of the district and in places  are threatening to do serious damage.  One fire -is now close to P. Burns & 1  Company's slaughter yards, near Eholt  Meadow, about four miles northwest of  Greenwood. It is estimated that 30 or  10 men are now fighting the flames in  order to save from destruction the buildings and a lot of hides that have been  accumulated there. Another fire yesterday interrupted telephone communication on the B. C. mine near Eholt. Word  comes from Midway tonight that a fire  is burning on Ian McLung's ranch just  across the boundary line from Midway and other advices tell of fires burning up the fork of Kettle river between  "\Vest Bridge and Beaverdell.  The manager of the B. C. Copper Company is inviting tenders for deepening  the main shaft of the Motherlode mine  near Greenwood. It is-proposed to sink  either .100 or 200 feet deeper, but the  depth will be determined for the" present by the price oifered to do the work.  The shaft is now down 325 feet and  there are comparatively extensive workings at both the 200. and 300 levels. Altogether about C000 lineal feet of work  have been done in the development of  this mine, which, during the current  year has sent nearly 50,000 tons of ore  to the company's smelter at Greenwood,  of which reduction works Paul Johnston is in charge. A second furnace has  lately been ordered for this smelter. The  company is now preparing to enter upon  a more extensive plan of development  to increase the output of the mine pro-'  portionately to the intended enlargement of the treatment capacity pf the  smelter.  Boundary Ore Shipments.  PHOENIX, August 17.���[Special to  The Tribune.]���This week's Boundary  shipments are only a little behind those  for last week, which were the largest  in the history of the country. This week  the figures are as follows: Old Ironsides group, 5262 tons; B. C. mine, 060;  Winnipeg, 40; R. Boll, 60; Mother Lode,  2272; total for the week, 8294 tons; total for this year to date, 224,713 tons; total for last year and this year, 322,536  tons.  He Levied on a Railroad. .  PORTLAND, August IS.���The sheriff  today served a writ of execution in the  case of the Seattle ^-Montana railroad  against the Portland & Puget Sound  Railroad Company. The amount involved  was $1,67S,S80. The sheriff levied on all  tire property of the defendant company  which could' be found here, which consists of a railroad right ot' way across  Shaw's island in the Columbia opposite  Vancouver, and includes a partly constructed railroad bridge at this poiut.  Blackburn Returns.  NEW YORK, August 18��� Captain  -Howard Blackburn,-the fingerless - navigator of Gloucester, Mass., who last June  crossed the Atlantic from his Massachusetts home to Portugal in a small sloop,  has reached New^York on his way home.  The hazardous trip'was-made, but not  without great hardship and captain  Blackburn, who has made several trips  with a similar degree' of danger attached to them, says he will make no more.  REASONS' WHY  CORCORAN.  STEAMER ISLANDER GOES TO THE BOTTOM  Sixty to Eighty Passengers Reported  Lost.  VICTORIA, August 18.���The steamer  Islander, the crack passenger steamer  of the Alaskan route, operated by the  C. P. N. Co. of this city, struck an iceberg off Douglas island at 2 o'clock on  the morning of Thursday last and went  to the bottom, carrying from 65 to 80  souls, including passengers and members of the crew. Some of the.survivors  arrived here this evening by the steamer  Queen. They report that as the boat  went down her boilers exploded, causing  the death of many who might have  been saved. Captain Foote was. on the  bridge when the vessel struck and stayed there and went down with his steamer. Among the passengers lost on the  Islander were Mrs. Ross, wife of commissioner Ross of the Yukon .territory,  her child and niece; Dr. John Duncan  of this city; W. G. Preston and bride,  Seattle; F. Mills, Mrs. J. C. Henderson,  W. H. Keating and two sons of this city  and Los Angeles; J. Y. Douglas, Vancouver; Mrs. Phillips and-child, Seattle;  Mr. Bfcll and Mrs. captain Nickerson;  Mrs. W. Smith, Vancouver; J. A. Bleth-  en, Vancouver; J. L. Wilcox, Seattle.  The members of the crew lost are:  Captain Foote; George Allen, third engineer; Horace Smith, second steward;  S. J. Pitts, cook; two Chinese; Buck-  holder and Burke, oilers; two firemen;  one coal passer; night saloon watchman  Kendall; Joe Beard,-second pantryman;  two waiters; G. Miller, the barber; N.  Law, M. P. Jock, Porter and Moran,  coal passers.  F. G. Hinde-Bowker, late manager of  the British-American Corporation of  London, who was a passenger, says: "My.  first intimation of an accident was the_  running of passengers on the deck which  woke me up. I was in a cabin with Mr.:  TNaugfiten. I got up. and went out of  the, cabin and saw the steamer sinking  at the bow. I awoke my partner and we  dressed. By this time she was still  lower in the water.. ��At the time I got  out of the cabin the.water was abreast  the smoking room floor. I went up on  the upper deck, followed by my partner.  I saw the boats' were gone and I went  to a tall hanging _ davit. By this time  only the stern was out of the water.  I saw a raft in the water with, eight or  ten people on it. I slid down the rope  on to the raft and as soon as I got  on the stern the steamer sank and  sucked the raft and people down. We  were some time under water, but I held  on and-when "it came up only two of  us were left, v We "hailed two men who  were swimming and got them aboard,  also a Chinaman. By this time the  steamer had sunk out of sight. Many  people hung on to the raft at different  times, but' it was not air tight and we  had much difficulty keeping afloat. We  were turned over once by others climb  ing on, but generally managed to right  ourselves. The scene was heartrending.  The boats were scattered and overcrowd-  . ed 'and people were adrift begging, pleading and crying for help. We gathered  lumber and made our raft float. We  were picked up by one of the boats  returning from shore. I cannot speak  too highly of the officers and crew."  There was $235,000 in gold'on the  steamer, $100,000 of which was carried  by passengers. H. H. Hart, who has  spent 16 years* in the Klondike, lost  $35,000 in dust. There was a heavy  fog at the time, and pilot Leblanc was  on the bridge, captain : Foote being at  lunch. When,he heard the crash he  rushed on deck and went down with  the ship. Some say, however,' that he  reached a raft, but .when he saw the  extent of the. disaster he jumped overboard. No accurate list -of the dead  will be available until the arrival of the  purser on the steamer Farallone tomorrow.  George McL. Brown, executive agent  ,of the C. P. It., after interviewing the  officers and passengers who returned,  said:    "The purser_;is remaining in the  . north attending to the forwarding of  through passengers. It is impossible to  give the exact list of those lost,, but  from the fact-that 11'3 were saved, the  number lost must be very much below  the figures mentioned. In my opinion  the loss of life will not exceed 20."  SOUTH   AFRICAN   AFFAIRS  KITCHENER'S PROCLAMATION AS  YET HAS NO EFFECT.  -    Was Pardoned.  - SALT LAKE, August 17.���A special to  the Tribune from Boise/Idaho says:  Governor Hunt today gave out the following as his reasons for voting for the  pardon of'Paul Corcoran:  "This is the first case acted upon by  the board of pardons where its decision  -*has=not-been=unanimous��T-hat>the=board=  failed to reach a united decision in this  case is due to the honest differences upon the merits of the question. Politics,  has at no time entered into the deliberations of the board and never wiirwith  my consent. Corcoran was the only man  convicted out of a thousand who joined  in the acts of destruction and violence  in  the  Coeur  d'Alenes  in  1899.   Every  ringleader in that mob should have received equal punishment: In my opinion  the punishment he has had is sufficient  to satisfy tho demands of justice and to  convince  those who advocate violence  and arson that the law will not tolerate such practice, and I believe that his  further confinement will only continue  to embitter the feeling existing in the  Coeur drAlenes. The object of the penal  confinement   is   not   only   to   cause   a  wholesome respect for the law and fear  among the criminal class, but its most  beneficial exercise is to make a bettei'  man of the person suffering such punishment. The  board is fully convinced  in the belief tliat Corcoran will rather  aid in enforcing and observing the law  hereafter than in defying it. Nearly C0O0  citizens in different parts of the state  petitioned for Corcoran's pardon, which  had some weight with the board. Another reason that influenced me in this  case was the man's family. A woman  slowly dying of grief is an appeal that I  cannot look upon without sympathy, but  my principal reason for.voting to pardon this man is that it will bring peace  and a better feeling to prevail in a section of the state that nas been torn by  disorer and murder.  Many of the men  who have been responsible for this condition   have  removed   from   the  state.  Organized labor in that "part of the state  is as firmly committed to peaceful methods as any class of people in the state,  and although the violence perpetrated  in its name in 1899 will always be a stain  that cannot be wiped out, yet I believe  that the time has come to extend the  clemency in this case that the law contemplates when sufficient reason exists."  Orange River Colony Is Comparatively  Peaceful, Belligerent Boeis Having Been Driven Away.  Joseph Joachim, the great German  violinist, who recently celebrated his  70th birthday, has been made a director  of philosophy by the University of Goet-  tingen, an honor, he says, he earned by  the philosophy with which he bore poverty in his younger days.  ' LONDON, August 18.���The effect of  lord Kitchener's, or, rather, Mr. Chamberlain's proclamation is not' distinctly  noticeable in South Africa. There are  rumors of a renewal of negotiations between general Botha and general Kitchener, but these are probably fictitions,  like the vagaries respecting Mr. Kruger's letters of marque to privateers.  The number of voluntary surrenders has  not increased, but it is premature to  look for a result of this kind when the  proclamation allows several weeks in  which the Boers can reconcile them-  , selves to the idea of submission. Practical military men have little confidence  in the efficacy of proclamations as a  peace-making agency, but admit that it  =will=be=useful=to=have-=a=convenient=date=  for another manifesto, withholding belligerent rights and changing the character of the military operations. There  has been no material change in the situation during the last 0week. The  Orange River Colony is more peaceful  than any other section but this is because the country has been thoroughly  cleared and the combatants have been  driven north and south for ammunition  and food. Four Boer commandos have  been lost recently in the Transvaal and  the burghers seem thoroughly dispirited.  General French has the most arduous  work among the Cape rebels but is  gaining ground and reducing the area  of hostile operations". He is driving  Kritzinger's and other commandos toward and across the Orange river into  districts which liave been emptied of  population and stores.  There is indeed ground for a larger  reserve of optimism than is displayed  in the meager reference in th'e king's  speech to the progress of British arms  in South Africa.  UNIVERSITY ATHLETIC TEAM.  No fault is found among sporting men  with the University athletic team now  on its way across the Atlantic. While  weak in hurdles, quarter mile and hammer, it is considered strong and representative of university athletes. The  high jump and hammer are conceded to  Harvard and Yale and the half mile and  two miles are claimed'for the blues. The  remaining events* are considered open  with chances in favor of the Americans  for the sprint and quarter mile and in  favor of the blues for the mile and the  long 'jump.  SOCIETY GOSSIP.  One of the closing weddings of the  season was well attended yesterday by  military officers at St. George, Hanover  square. The bridegroom was captain  Charles Hyde Villers of the Horse  Guards and the bride lady Victoria In-  nis, a goddaughter of queen Victoria.  As the bride's brothers, the duke of Roxburgh and lord Alastir Innis Kerr were  in duty in South Africa, her uncle, lord  Tweedmouth, gave her away, and as  lady Bell Rocherbert was prevented  from attending at the last moment there  were five instead of six bridesmaids.  There was a beautiful brooch from the  king, with queen Victoria's cipher among  the presents!  Winston Churchill, for whose benefit  the Blenheim Unionist picnic was ordered 'a, week ago,.will be master of  the political revels next week at a similar lawn party at Londsborough Lodge.  Lady Londsborough will be supported  by a bevy of young ladies of quality and.  a mixed entertainment will be provided  by masked musicians,-a chorus of singers and flower girls for the amusement  of the voters in the shire.  CORONATION PREPARATIONS  PLANS ARE NOW IN PROCESS OF  ELABORATION.  Mrs Stokes Didn't Pay Duly  NEW YORK. August 18��� After a  careful search of the records^ the local  customs officers of;this'city have been  unable to ascertain whether .or not the  jeweled chain possessed by Mrs. W. E.  D. Stokes when she' returned from  abroad on the. Oceanic recently ever paid  duty in this country. As a result Mrs.  Stokes will probably avail herself of a  clause in the law which will allow her  to send the chain back to Europe, there  to be dismounted by the maker. The  chain will then be reimported and in  the unmounted state, will pay duty of  10 per cent on the diamonds, 20 per cent  on the pearls and 60 per cent on the setting. Intact the chain would call for  an even duty of 60 per cent on each of  the items mentioned. - The foreign value  of the chain is about $3400. Mrs. Stokes  is acquitted of any attempt to defraud  the authorities. On her last trip from  Europe she-brought in a quantity of  costly apparel, jewelry and trinkets, on  which she paid duties amounting to  $2800.  Railroad to Black Hills.  MINNEAPOLIS, August 18. ���It is announced that final arrangements have  recently been concluded in New York  whereby Minneapolis and St. Paul aro  to be givon direct railroad connection  with the Black Hills. The company is to  be called the Twin City, Pierre & Black  Hills, and is to be built from Aberdeen  to Rapid City, in the hills, crossing the  Missouri river at Pierre. The road will  be 295 miles long and will eventually  become part of one of the great systems  and be a part of a short line from the  northwest to Denver, the Gulf and California. The plan is to extend the road  from Rapid City to a connection with  the Union Pacific at Orin Junction.  Wyoming.  King Edward Is in the Best of Health  Work of Parliament Criticised.  Ford's European Cables..  Talk of Botha's Surrender.  LONDON, August IS.���The Sun said  yesterday that it hears that the concentration of general Botha's forces at  Hondweni, on the borders of Zululand,  announced in a dispatch, does not foreshadow a fight with Botha, but his surrender, in pursuance with an understanding reached between general Botha  and lord Kitchener. The Sun adds that  the government is so satisfied thnt the  war is virtually over that lord Milner,  now on his way back to South Africa,  has in preparation a draft of a complete constitution and plans for the future government of the annexed territory.    A Ch'caso Cylistc.  BREST, August 18.���Miller of Chicago  was the seventh of the contestants in  the international bicycle race from Paris  to Brest and return, a distance of 1200  kilometers, to reach this city. He arrived here at 6:37 this morning. He  was fagged out. Lcsna passed Morlaix  about 34 miles northeast of Brest on his  return journey to Paris at 5:42 a", m.  He was going well.  The Salvation Army is doing splendid  work in Cleveland in the distribution of  free ice to the worthy poor. The army  probably believes the ice will be as acceptable now as it will later on.  NEW  YORK,   August  18.���A  special  from London by Isaac N. Ford and published in today's Tribune says:    Court  officials  are enjoying the first holiday  which they have had since the opening  of the new reign.    The king has kept  them employed-in a most businesslike  way and has changed all the methods  and habits of the country,  laying out  work for  everyone and insisting upon  having it done with precision and dispatch.    Inquiry  has  been  ordered  and  new details of organization introduced:  The  officials  accustomed  to the more  leisurely ways of the queen are fairly  out of breath.   Arrangements have been  made for the coronation with painstaking care and the plans are now in pro-  "cess=of=ela;bol'ati6Tr=dunff  absence on the continent.    Four great  officials will have charge of the coronation ceremonies.    The lord chamberlain  will  be  master of the  horse and  'the  earl  marshal   will   direct  the  progress of the royal procession to Westminster   Abbey  and   its   return   to  the  palace. The lord great chamberlain, and  the highest court must decide who he  is, will, have charge of the ceremony at  the Abbey and arrangements for seating the elect among the titled and privileged few.    The triumphal progress of  the king and  queen' on   tho  day  after  the  coronation   and   the   arrangements  for entertaining special  embassies and  royal  guests aro  matters  of detail   already under consideration.    Conditions  have   boen   transformed  since  the   last  coronation  and   the  ceremony  has  becomo vastly  more difficult to arrange,  owing to the increased pressure of titled  and privileged people seeking admission  to the abbey.   Spaces have been allotted  already  in  tlie-abbey and   plans  made  for   the   accommodation   of   the   titled  classes  and   royal  guests  and  the  officials  asserts  that when  the  ministers,  the court officials, the diplomatic corps  and   the   colonial   representatives   are  crowded in there will not be room for  anybody else.    The problem of accommodation for those who can present a  valid claim to be present is pronounced  in advance utterly impossible. The great  majority of those who contrive to gain  admission will be where they can't see  what goes  on.    During the protracted  ceremony the nave will be crowded, but  effectually cut off from 'a  view of the  coronation service.  Plans of the king for the remainder  of the year are stated in many contradicted forms. Apprehension respecting  his health is not well founded. Everybody who has been in touch with him  asserts that his voice is strong and that  he is a marvel of energy. Princess Henry of Battenberg will occupy the apartment; in St. James palace whore the  duke of Cornwall and York formerly  lived. The duke will have Marlborough  and possibly Osborne house also as a  marine residence, although the matter  has not been announced publicly. There  has been a rumor that the king will  visit Balmoral,   but  this plan  has  al  ready been made and changed several  times.  THE WORK OF PARLIAMENT.  There is a general agreement among  the moralists who are summing up the  record, that it has been a session with-  o'ut energy or enthusiasm and that the  legislative results are unworthy of a  party which" has won a remarkable victory at the general elections. The factory amendment is the only pledge of the  king's speech redeemed outside of military and naval projects, and there is a  beggarly array of legislation with renewals of the agricultural rates act  and the single educational clause and  measures relating to the demise of the  crown, the imperial title of ihe sovereign, a Pacific cable and a few small  Irish projects. There have been no great  debates and such interest" as there has  been in the proceedings has centered  in episodes of petty by-play and factional quarrels behind the scenes. Mr.  Redmond has had the only real success  as a party leader, although lord Spencer  has done well enough in the house of  lords. The Irish party has again become  ���powerful by virtue of unity of direction  and .the enforcement;of strict discipline.  The Liberals have tak'en. the place of  the Nationalists.as a mob of wrangling  factions and there has not been strength  enough in the bow of Unionist leadership. The mace has served to. differentiate ministerial inaptitude from the  turpitude and demoralization of the opposition. The final echoes from the  smoking ruins of the commons are  snatches of gossip about Cecil Rhodes'  subscription to the Liberal party during  the period of Mr. Schadhorst's management.  CECIL RHODES' SUBSCRIPTION.  The Spectator with a shoit letter from  Mr. Rhodes and a long one from Charles  Boyd returns to the attack upon sir  Henry Campbell-Bannerman who must  now regret the vehemence of his denial  given to a well-founded statement of  fact. The text of the correspondence  is 'promised by Mr. Rhodes but there  is no reason to doubt the fact that he  subscribed ��5000 to the Liberal political fund with the understanding that  Egypt should not be abandoned and that  he was reassured by Mr. Schnadhorst  when he suspected "that the money had  been secured under false pretences. Sir  Henry Campbell-Bannerman by giving  the lie unceremoniously to the Spectator  and its correspondent is now placed in  "an embarrassing position. Nobody supposes that Mr. Rhodes bribed the Gladstone government to remain in Egypt  by so "meager- a subscription or that the  cabinet ever discussed the subject and  authorized Mr. Schnadhorst to place its  policy in pawn. Consciences were not  bought and sold, but colonial statesmen  interested in imperialistic questions  made an investment in the Liberal campaign and required and-received^ satisfaction respecting their secretaries. The  disclosure is a most annoying one to  tlie Radicals, who have been denouncing  Mr. Rhodes as a conspirator and a disturber of the peace in South Africa and  are now confronted with the evidence  of his financial dealings with Mr.  Schnadhorst-   PARLIAMENT IS PROROGUED  Comment of the Critics  NEW YORK, August 18.���Parliament  was prorogued today after a phenomenally dull session, during which the government has done little except replenish the war chest, while the demoralized  Liberals have been sowing tho winds  after plowing the sands, says the Loh-  on correspondent of the Tribune. The  Irislwnembei-s_hav^J^en_kept wel]_in_  hand by Mr. Redmond a"nd "have  strengthened the home rule cause by  perseverance in tactics of their own.  The breach of privilege committed by  the Tory Globe enable the Nationalists  to vindicate their dignity after the English members had shown themselves less  sensitive to partisan attacks. George Elliot Armstrong, recalled in hot haste  from a holiday vacation, joined the publisher, Mr. Magde, in expressing regret  for having affronted the Irish members  and shared with him the burden of tho  speaker's reprimand. The Nationalists  affected seriousness over the offence, but  were highly amused by the episode. Mr.  Armstrong is a son of sir George Armstrong, sole owner of the Globe, and resigned from the navy to edit the journal.  The article which is alleged to have excited the resentment of the Nationalists  is alleged to'have been written by lord  Mountmorrcs, whose .dther was murdered in Ireland. Mr. Balfour has driven  the commons furiously this week and  speaker, members, and officials are sorely jaded. The Liberal Imperialists,  bracketed or otherwise, promise to take  the field as soon as they have regained  their breath. Mr. Asquith and sir Henry  Fowler will carry on an educational  campaign in the provinces without  awaiting the signal from lord Rosebery  in lonely Harrow.  The proroguin--: of parliament today  is the occasion of much comment. The  Pall Mall Gazette refers to the results  accomplished with notations on "the  decay of parliamentary government" and  "the break down of the constitutional  system." However this may be, finance  was the only big thing dealt with during  the session. Even the Times and the  Globe point out the decline of the authority of the ministers in the house of  commons. The closure has been used  more frequentfy than ever before. Mr.  Balfour, the government leader, has delighted the cynics by his cool unconcern  in walking into the house of commons  at llo'clock and breaking off debate by  the closure.  REPORT OF THE AUDITOR  FINANCIAL  CONDITION   OF   THE  CIIY OF NELSON.  Receipts and  Disbursements   for  the  Six Months Ending June  30th, 1901  '  . r  The consideration of the financial results of their first six months' stewardship will  be  the principal  business at  the session of the city council this evening, when the report of the auditor will  be submitted.*   Although there has been'  more or less talk during the past month  of another debenture issue, the financial'  statement of the council does not show  that any such issue is necessary.    The *  report of the auditor shows a total expenditure of $49,786.00 for the first six  months, with receipts from all sources ,  of  $35,019.35,   so   that  the   council  has'  gone behind upon the flrst half year's'  operations just $14,766.65; but it should  be remembered that the expeditures for  -the first half of the  year are always  heavier than those of the second half,  while the revenue is very much, lighter"  than that of the second half.   A glance  at the  heads  of  receipts   for  the past  six   months  will  show  that  under   no*  important heads can decreases  be ex-   *���  pected   for   the   second   half,   while   in    .  many  of  the   items   very  material   in-   '"  creases may be safely anticipated.   For  these reasons it will be safe to say that  the revenue for the recond half of the -  year will be fully $35,000, exclusive of"  the receipts from real estate taxes,- and __  in the aggregate should be fully $50,000.'"  Indeed this total should, be very greatly  ,  exceeded,   for  accompanying  the  audi--  tor's report is a summary of'the out-^  standing accounts clue to the city "tor'  its    several    services.    This    summary"/  shows $1920 due for scavenger service.''-  $2463.99 as airears for taxes, $1015.65 due ' '  upon sewer rentals,* $3833.10 due for electric   light   rates,   $1293.38   upon   water' "  rates, and  $595  for licenses,  making a  grand total of $11,121.12. "    ,  Whon���the auditor's statement is carefully gone into by the members of the  council, it is just possible that they -  will see a way to complete the year  without another debenture issue unless  the money to be raised is for some extraordinary purpose.

In other words, the city council  expended on ordinary every-day disbursements ?5000 more than they received from ordinary every-day receipts.  For the six months ending December  31st they must curtail these ordinary  every-day expenditures by $10,000, in order to meet tho payment of ?5000 for  the new public school building and wipe  out the indebtedness incurred, during the  first six months. They should be able  to do it. Street and sidewalk work has  been suspended, which amounted to over  $11,000 the first six months; the health  .department should not be very expensive for the present six months, for it  cost $2417.09 the first six; and donations should not be as much by $1000.  It can be done, if rigid economy is practiced, and to do this expenditures that  are needless should not bo made.

It saj-s that if snobbery of the Ottawa  brand is the rule throughout ��� Canada,  the coming visit of the heir apparent  will, be lacking in many pleasant features. The Sandon Paystreak, also, has  a word to say regarding the coming  visit. It calls it a ponderous farce  There is nothing wrong in the visit. It  would not be a farce were the snobs  kept in the background. Men entrusted  with the responsibilities of office should,  as often as is consistent with the proper  performance of their official duties, visit  the people whose servants they are. It  is only by visits, such as he is now making, that the heir apparent can gain  a true estimate of the greatness of the  British Empire and the people -,\ ho  make the empire great. But the snob  is everywhere, and the greater number  of them are always iu evidence when a  person of distinction is to be shown attention.     .   West Is at Fault.  Eastern Canada does not deserve a  lecture from such journals as the Vancouver Province on the sin of indifference to the evils of Japanese immigration. When British Columbia really  wakes up, Eastern Canada will not be  asleep. Western Canadians need not  take the advice bf the Vancouver Province and dump a few Japanese toilers  on the Toronto and Montreal market  in order to bring home the blessings of  Oriental labor to the voters east of Lake  Superior. Japanese immigration will  cease the minute that British Columbia  goes to the polls and votes for its cessation. Eastern Canada may be excused  for scepticism as to the grievances of a  people who tolerate such editorial shufflers as the Vancouver Province and pin  their faith to the deaf, dumb, and blind  partisanship of Aulay Morrison, Ralph  Smith, E. G. Prior, G. R. Maxwell, and  hon. senator William Templeman.���Toronto Telegram.    ,;���''��� ,  toto  to  to  toto  9\  9\  9}  to  i\x  to  9\  9\  9\  9\  IXIX nxxxxzzx  p  4  j  i  LADIES' SUNSHADES  AT HALF PRICE.

In order to better understand the city's  receipts and disbursements, both should  be divided into two heads. The receipts  should be di'/id*d as coming from ordinary revenue and from taxes that arc  payable once a year. Under the flrst  head would be grouped licenses,'police  court fines, miscellaneous, electric light  rates, water rates, scavenger rates, and  weigh scale receipts. To these might  be included dog taxes, burial permits,  and supplies sold. These sources yielded the city $32,739.53 for the six months  ending June 30th last. Under the second head should be grouped real estate  taxes, sewer rentals, and road taxes.  These three sources yielded ?227!).S2 during the same time. For the six months  ending December 31st next, the receipts  from the sources included under the  first head should not be less than for  the six months ending June 30th last,  and the receipts from the sources included under the second head should be  greatly increased, as the taxes for 1901  have not been paid, nor have tiie sewer  rentals, and the bulk of the road taxes  for the year remain unpaid. The sums  realized from these three sources of revenue should meet all interest and sinking fund requirements for the entire  year. This would leave the revenue  from the sources under the first head  to be used for ordinary disbursements.  Tlie ordinary disbursements for the six-  months ending June 30th last total  $37,692.91. This includes every expenditure made fo.r the police department,  scavenger department, fire department,  health department, city hall salaries, do-  Was Not a Case of Suicide.  The Fort; Steele Prospector gives the  following account of the finding of the  body of-the late Charles Clark, collector of customs at Fort Steele: "On  Monday last the mystery relating to the  disappearance _ of Charles Clark was in  some degree'solved by 7the finding of  the body inrthe river nearly two miles  below .town.; Coroner Watt having been  notified, went down and made an examination of the body, concluding that it  was unnecessary to hold an inquest. Decomposition had advanced considerably,  and it was not easy, owing to this condition";'of the body; to come to positive  conclusions--as to the exact cause of  death., But an extensive discoloration  of one side of the head, face and shoulder, caused more probably previous to  death, lends great likelihood to a theory  _no~w7advanced_as__to__the_jnoclo of death.  It is certain that Mr. Clark had expressed a wish to go over the river to'  see the operation of two mowing machines in R. L. T. Galbraith's hayfield;  and he had probably left home with that  intention on the day of his disappearance. ' He was observed and spoken to  on the high bank behind the Imperial  hotel and near the trail or steps leading down to the 'bridge! Proceeding to  cross the bridge, the day being very  hot, he was probably seized with a sudden faintness: or spasm of tho-heart,  and leaning ovor the railing lost his balance and fell, striking one of the piers,  and being thus stunned, dropped- into  the river. All the facts of the case, as  carefully searched out, and the condition of tho body as above described,  make it all but certain that this was the  mode of death."  KOOTENAY GOFFEE GO.

In addition to giving  employment to an army.of men on the  actual labor works- at Beechaven, the  Irish people say it is quite within the  bounds of probability that the completion of these works will lead to important railway developments. Certainly  a harbor.at'Beechaven would be of no  'use tb tlie Atlantic liners without an  express railway";'service to Dublin or  some other port .on the east coast of  Ireland, from wliei'e the passengers could  make tlieir way rapidly to London.

Mendelssohn, Burns and By-'  jri belonged to this sign, and were men  I the same emotions.    Each portrayed  emotion in his art:  fflie vibrating impulse of Aquarius in-  j'iably finds its outlet in music, poetry  painting.   These men attained much,  Id the fulfillment of thoir still greater  amise was balked only by the leisurely  Ibits characterizing all proteges of this  \n.   Like the rest of mankind, Ao.ua-  |is' heirs find it much easier to dream  sties than to build them���much easier  I think heroic deeds than to do them.  Iiey are the students, the thinkers, the  (formers, the supporters of any and all  Novations that tend  toward  the ad-  fncement of art, letters or liberty. AI-  foug-h  brilliant writers,  they are sel-  ?m   clever  conversationalists,  lacking  fat personal  magnetism and  dramatic  lanner of expression that compel undi-  fcdetl attention. George Washington was  i*rn under the cusp of this sign, Abra-  lm Lincoln under it's full influence. ���  February'19th to March 20th.���People  lorn during the latter half of February  Iritho early half of  March  enter life  fnder the influence of the sign Pisces  watery, fruitful sign, indicating a pure  Impid soul, a tremulous sympathy with  mture.'and a scattering of vital fo.rcc:  These people spend their emotions on  [humanity.with the same prodigality that  [water spends its force on dry soil. They  fare so modest, so wanting in seif-appre-  Vjiatioh, so full of., "the milk -of human  fkindness," that  they  repeatedly  allow  themselves to be used as a ladder by  *hich the unscrupulous  may climb  to  L'selfish success.   Messohier, born under  jhis sign; stroked his very soul upon  Janvas  for  the world  to  see;   Victor  bugo sounded every, fiber of pity in the  "uman heart, persuading every man "to  aercy;  Copernicus, taught us the voice  If the stars; and Darwin has shown us  purpose and a possible, perfection in;'  all that should make man proud te'  fe ,the tiniest cog-wheel of' so great "a.-  cheme.

THE   CURRENT   BATE   OF    INTEREST   ALLOWED.  , March 20th . to April 19th���People.  orn between these dates take up the  read of life uuder the influence of the  jry sign Aries, a movable, equinoctial  gn of the zodiac, indicating a stormy,  petuous nature, and an eventful course  .  life:  These people enter life's arena with  mad martial music in their souls that  r*rces them forward to conquer or die.  heir loins are girded round with a domination  that strikes  its . colors  tc  either   man,   maid   nor   circumstance,  nee having conquered indecision as tc  lie course they mean to pursue, they  ill march to success over the corpse of  ���eir   own" dead   slaves,   content  with  ctory as its. own reward, gaining their  [nils at any cost, hut giving the prefer-  'ice to honorable means,  unless such  eahs obstruct the direct road to their  mievenients.   The women of this sign  e born leaders.   The men draw irre-  ;stibly  toward  war and  politics,  and  '���nerally carry a throng of satellites  th them.   Henry Clay, Bismarck and  liakespeare   all   belong   to   this   sign.  * * Of the months of the year, June  Id July should prove most congenial  the successful development of Aries  terests, and it is advisable that aU  filcult transactions and precarious un-  wtakings should be referred as much  possible to these months.    Tuesday  given the preference as the most pro-  tious day of .the week; hut all days  e useful to���auick-witted Aries, who  rns early in life that "we must take  e  tide  when   it  serves   or  lose  our  ���ntures."    The flower of  this  storm-  ssed month is the amaryllis, signify-  g unbending pride.  April 19th to May 20th.���People born  tween these dates enter life under the  [didance of the mighty Taurus, a strong.  -ed, earthly sign, bequeathing to its  '���oteges a wealth of sterling attribute*-  at can scarcely fail of success:  rIThese people a're the sturdy oaks or  jciety.   But even the sturdy oak is nol  ''dependent of outside forces;  it "must  ���:*aw   sustenance   from   earth,   air  and  ater.    And   so  with  the  assimilative  !ind of Taurus.    It is not independent  ��� original, but must draw inspiration  om the minds of other men.   Theirs is  1 e power that Emerson alludes to when  * says:    "Great genial power consists  uot being original at all; in being _  altogether receptive." And these people above all others are capable of receiving and successfully maturing the  half-formed plans of their less executive fellow-men. They are the Realists  who bring to happy fruition the visionary schemes of Idealists. In a word,  they are the practical, useful, dependable people of the earth. They are seldom talkative, however, nor are they  likely txr soar to" any great heights of  imagination, for tlieir knowledge lies  deep and-does not come readily to the  surface.4 * * * But people of more  superficial signs soon learn to rely upon  these sturdy proteges of Taurus for mental, moral and physical .support. * * *  To Taurus belonged Huxley, Wellington  and John Stuart Mill.  . May 20th to June 21st.���Persons waking to light during tnis period take  their inheritance from the sign Gemini,  an airy, barren, changeable sign,, indicating a variable nature and changeful existence:  These people are usually a bewildering combination!*) of contradictions and  seem possessed of two distinct natures.  Their friends find it difficult to know  -upon'which of them to depend. * * *  They love and they don't love; they are  happy and unhappy; they wish to give  and they wish to retain. They are  filled with unrest, and long to be away,  to do something or be something, though  they seldom know what. As poets, artists, teachers,' intellectual leaders, or  after-dinner speakers they excel. Many  famous wits have been born under this  sign, among them Alexander Pope and  Ralph Waldo Emerson. Their quick,  restless minds find expression with such  aptness and rapidity its to astonish even  themselves.  June 21st to July 22d.���The-Romans  dedicated the radiant-month of June  to Luna, .the- moon goddess. Persons,  born during the latter half of this fickle  month, or the earlier half of July enter  life under the doubtful influence of the  sign Cancer, a watery, tropical, changeable sign, indicating a wavering of character and a complexity of good and  bad- attributes .that are apt to result  in a very unusual manner- in life, and  render these people wholly incomprehensible to the larger humanity:  These people, though gifted in many  directions to the verge of genius, like  senilis, they are alluring, unstable, never  Quite defined. They are the people whom"  Emerson describes as "having no next.  They live from hand .to mouth without  plan, and after each 'action they wait.  cor an impulse from abroad.'" * * *  But neither broad-minded nor open to  conviction, they seldom progress. Like  the slow, conservative Chinese empire  (which is under this sign), they retire  within themselves at the, first hint of  change or improvement. They invariably construe any attempt made for their  advancement into a personal reflection  upon their own capability, and become  moody and melancholy in consequence.  ����� * ;*; In the words of Le Gaillienne,  they are "a curious mixture of'dream  and illusion." John Jacob Astor belongs'to this sign.  ���".'. July 22d to August 22d.���Persons entering life during this period take their  inheritance from the magnetic Leo, a  fiery, commanding, changing sign, gov-  .erning^tho^heat^ofJife^and^radiating^  life and warmth:  These . people are generous, sympathetic, kind-hearted and impulsive to a  dangerous degree. Let impulse once be  coupled with their inborn courage, and  determination, and they rush to alarming extremes, unmindful of the cost.  Quick intuition alone may sometimes enable them to avert the deserved consequence of their foolhardiness. With  them argument is useless. They act  from the heart, not from the head, and  are managed only through love or sympathy. * * * Like tlie late Mr. Vanderbilt, these people arc "not lazy, but  constitutionally opposed to physical exertion." Robert Ingersoll was a protege  of this sign; also Napoleon, Sarah Sid-  ddns and innumerable social leaders,  orators and actors���persons who were  in their element only when dealing with  humanity in its broader sense and winning the plaudits of the world at large.  August 22d to September 23d.���People  born during this period enter life under  the influence of the sign Virgo, an  earthly, barren sign, indicating a materialistic, matter-of-fact turn of mind,  a keen insight into human nature and a  cold-blooded estimate of life and the  things of life:  These people are qualified for success  in various directions, becoming successful chemists, lawyers, designers, scholars, philosophers, journalists, novelists,  or politicians; the latter because of an  inborn aptitude for sounding public  opinion. Goethe belonged to this sign,  also Eugene Field. * * * An amusing inconsistency in the lives of these  people is their absolute helplessness to  cope with the family feuds and misunderstandings that they themselves have  unwittingly created. * * * The most  helpful' marital relations are possible  for them, however, for they inherit a  genuine love of home and family. * *  Epieurean in their faith as well as in  their tastes, they take little account  of their future state, preferring to get  all they can out of the present. Yet,  as life advances, the idealism of their  nature sometimes so develops as to lift  them far above the lonely plane at which  they started. * * * These people are  seldom extensive travelers. * * They  are far more active in mind than in  body.  September 23d to October 23d.���Per-  Nelson Branch���Bums Block, 221 Baker  Street.  J. M. LAY, Manager.  m  9\  to  to  to  to  Established In Nelson 1890.  to  sons born during this period take up the  thread of life under the influence of the  sign Libra, an airy, sanguine sign, indicating impartial justice, rare good judgment and'fine liberality of thought:  These people, above those of all other  signs, are qualified to fill worthily the  high* places of earth, holding the whip-  hand over their fellow men by sheer  force of unassailable right. To this  sign belonged innumerable jurists, generals and leaders of people. * * *  Born leaders, these men are bad followers. * * * Many of the world's  famous actors and actresses have taken  their origin in this sign, among them  Sarah Bernhardt,- Peg Woffington and  Mme. Modjeska. * * * The men in  Libra excel in constancy to the few  whom they' love, fop. it is no more in  their nature to scatter their affection  than to scatter their force. Having  once made their choice, they are content  to ."follow Love's folding star to the  evening land."  October 23d to November 22d.���Persons born during the latter half of October or .the earlier half of November  draw unto themselves the vibratory influence of the sign Scorpio, a fixed, nocturnal, southern sign, indicating a  moody, determined, commanding nature, destined to strange vicissitudes of  fortune, but recognizing no obstacles:  It matters little what pursuit these  people elect to follow so long as they  are the head. Theirs is the motto of  Lucifer himself: '.'Better- to: reign in  hell than serve in heaven.". It is impossible- for them to .fill subordinate  positions with any marked degree of  success.. In1 the first place they are too  entirely selfish to work conscientiously  in the interests of another; in.the second place,.they have very decided convictions as to the way life and most of  its affairs should be conducted. * * *  Richard the Third, Murie Antoinette and  many dark figures iri. the world's history of-blood' and crime, drew inheritances from the violent sign of Scorpio,  and all - proteges of the period invariably drift toward places of fire,- blood  and tragedy.  November 22d to' December 21st.���People entering life during this period take  theirsinheritance from the .sign "Sagit-.  tarius, a fiery-speaking sign, indicating  a frank, energetic, progressive nature,  rich in love and hope, and blessed in an  inexhaustible faith in its fellow-man:  These people, such is the indomitable  energy and distressing activity of L> .&-  ittarius born, combine remarkable energy, keen insight, and an intuitive  knowledge of outcomes. They are excellent financiers in any enterprise that  involves the handling of money. * * *  Be the day or the hour what it may,  these busy people will be found to ru'-.h  drive_an'd push their, affairs in a nerve-  destroying fashion that taxes- mental  endurance to the uttermost. * -* *'; In  an artistic way, the heirs of Sagittarius  are sifted toward music (Padere-yski  was toil, under this sign) or the occult  scier..���������;'���.- . -'  -.  December 21st -to January 20th.���-  Those born-during the latter half ol  December or the earlier half of-January take up the thread, of life undo.*  the influence of the sign Capricornus, a  dry, earthly sign of the zodiac, influencing the protege toward a materialistic  estimate=of-life=and=the=things-of=life.==  Cold, calculating and exclusive by nature, the proteges of this sign inherit  a cautious, far-seeing instinct that precludes the possibility of impulse ever  gaining the mastery over their reason.  These > e^ple crime-, into life with thv.r*  minds mad*? up. They are'exempt Irom  the misery of in decision'that paralyzes  the will of weaker creatures. They  know nothing of the struggle that other  men undergo, having, arrived at the  choice of life's cross-roads. Barinc-  Gould has cleverly said that "on lite's  way all the direction posts are painted  to show us where we have iUverged  from the right way, and not whither we  are going." These brave, self-reliant  people of Capricornus feel little need  of direction posts. * * * William E.  Gladstone, Disraeli, Daniel Webster and  sir Isaac Newton belonged to this sign.  to  9\  to  to  YOU &\N PROVE"  The more you hare to do with Jacob Dover, Iho Jeweler, tho more you will understand how the absolute success of a  specialty houso like hlsdupcnds on having tho right things at tho right prices, and having them all the time.

The first census bulletin of Canada's  population was issued on Friday and was  published that day in the afternoon  papers in the States. It managed to sift  through to Nelson on Saturday night.  British Columbia is not complete, being  put down at 190,000, as against !)S,173 in  1S91. This is a gain of over 100 per cent.  Vancouver leads Victoria by over 5000,  and shows a gain of 91 per cent. Quebec  with a population of 1,020,974 is entitled  to 05 members of the house of commons,  which makes the basis for representation 24,938. British Columbia will therefore be entitled to eight :members in the  commons instead of six, as at present.  Manitoba will be entitled to 10, New  Brunswick 13, Nova Scotia IS, Ontario  87, the Northwest Territories 6, and  Prince Edward Island 4.

It is expected that  from 40 to 45 tons of rock will be treated  per day.  The Slocan District.  Judging from the local newspapers of  Saturday times are improving in the  Slocan district. Por the week the shipments of ore and concentrates from Sandon and points on Slocan lake aggregated 443 t*^s.^jie^jpean,S_tarJeads���Qff  tion of the minister of education was  drawn to the.smallness of the sum set  apart for Nelson as compared with the  sums set apart for Rossland and Revelstoke, that official replied: "O, Ross-  " land asked for $15,000, and I am only  " going to give them half what they  " asked for." Neither Rossland or Revelstoke have expressed a willingness towards the erection of school buildings,  yet both must take over tlieir schools  on January 1st cnext. Nelson, on the  other hand, took it for granted that  $5000 was all she need expect from the  government for a new building and  chipped in the other $5000 herself. The  Mail article reads: -  "Hon. J. D. Prentice, minister of education, was in the city Monday and  spent most of the day in session with  the school board and Thomas Taylor,  M.P.P.*, on business in connection with  the erection of the new school buildings  for which a grant or $8000 was made  at. the last session of the legislature.  Mr. Prentice promised to at once put in  hand the erection of an eight room  frame structure with a stone foundation,  four rooms of which would be completed  at an expenditure to come within the  limit of:- the grant. The trustees, however, held out l'or a brick building .estimated to cost when completed about  $15,000, which would necessitate the  raising of another $7000, of which amount Mr. Taylor feels confident that at  the next session he can procure the  greater portion. With this assurance the  board dicided to allow the matter to  stand over for the present, in the hope  .that next spring there will be an appropriation sufficient tb undertake the erection of a building which they consider  would meet with the approval of the  citizens. The present grant of.$8000 does  not lapse until September of next year."  Mining Records.  There was but one location recorded  at tho Nelson record oflice Saturday.

McDonald in the Cristine mineral  claim on Cody creek to satisfy a judgment for costs in the case of W. M. Bots-  ford and John McQueen vs. McDonald.  This was an action to enforce an adverse  in which McDonald as the owner of the  Cristine was adversing the owners of  the Cube mineral claim. McDonald lost  the suit and the sheriff has now seized  his interest ip the Cristine to secure  taxed costs of $20.0.  The Athabasca company has engineers at work running a trial line for  the tramway by which it is proposed to  connect the Venus mine with the Athabasca mill. This may be taken to moan  that no time will be,lost in the amalga^  mation of the two properties and resuming work. At the Venus there is  said to be sufficient ore blocked out to  keep the Athabasca running at its utmost capacity for the next two years.  The Venus ore does not carry the same  values as the Athabasca but it is much  more easily mined and is expected to  yield even better returns,  The large elephant with the circus  gave a young man quite a scare yesterday. The young man had been warned  by the attendant several times to keep  at a distance, but without, effect, as he  kept crowding in to inspect things. A  miniature pony is among the circus animals, and between it aud the elephant a  remarkable friendship bas existed for  some time. The young man who knew it  with 12G tons, the Hewitt with 100 tons,  the Arlington with 70 tons, the American Boy with 01 tons, the Last Chance  with 40 tons, the Enterprise with a carload, and the Noble Five with 16 tons.  The Last Chance tunnel is in 1700  feet, and the face is supposed to be within-50 feet-of tlie ledge on the Qalena,  and it should be tapped within two  *,veeks. This will give a depth on the  vein of 1G00 feet, the deepest workings  in the Slocan. The American Boy owners have.built a wagon road to the Last  Chance, so as to be able to ship over the  tram at that mine. In one month 100  ���tons of ore was marketed, that brought  $100 to the ton. There is enough ore  blocked out in sight which would take  two years for the present staff to handle.  The development work and stoping is  being carried on so as to have the mine  in a position to ship steadily.  Dr. Hendryx, who is managing the  Last Chance in the absence of Mr. Heap,  is said to be buying the Jo Jo, a dry ore  proposition on the north fork of GoZr-  penter creek, in which Tom Trenary 13  tlie heaviest owner,  J. D. Kendall, the mining engineer,  was expected at Silverton on Saturday.  He is consulting engineer of the Emily  Edith Company, and it is likely that the  question of building a concentrator for  the Emily Edith mine will be settled  during his stay,  There are iS5 men on the Queen Bess  payroll  HOW SCHOOL BUILDINGS ARE  Going to Be Built.  The Revelstoke Mail of Saturday  shows how the money appropriated for  public school buildings throughout the  province is being manipulated by the  minister of education, It might be stated  in this connection that no specific ap-  priations were made for > public school  buildings at the the last session of the  legislature. A lump sum was appropriated, and of this lump sum Revelstoke  was down for $5000, Rossland $7500,  and Nelson for $5000. When the atten-  Winters Tells of His Wort:  "I have committed the greatest robbery  of this century. I had an opportunity \Q  steal a large sum frpm *r. rich man, and  unaided, I took advantage of the opportunity. I thought out and,executed the plan  myself. 1 neither stoop to smalt things nor  rob the poor. They suy that I committed  a theft at Stoekton. That Is a lie. When I  plan a robbery I plan a big one. Monday  evening, when.! took the bullion out of tlie  vault at the smelter, I did the hardest  work of my life, it took me the whole night  to finish drilling through the bottom of the  safe and to carry away the gold. I�� there-  had been more time I would have tuken  the $130,000 I left, behind me. Daylight came  too soon. When I saw that I would havo  =fo~~^IlT'rTffoppeci-tlIe���two bars on- tlie"  beach. I preferred to lose them rather.than  risk losing the whole of the quarter of a  million. It took me six weeks to dig the  tunnel under the vault and two nights to  get through the brick foundation. I did  large part of the drilling the last night and  forced through the bottom of the vault.  Then I climbed into the vault and threw  clown about half the gold. I carried the  gold to the outer end of the tunnel and  went back and threw down the rest. Then  I began to carry off the gold.  " I made fourteen trips from my tunnel  to the warf, where I lowered the bullion  into the bay, [ made a mark opposite where  I dropped each bar, so that I could readily  find them when 1 was ready. I planned  the robbery very well, but spoiled it all by  leaving my pistol and that package of  tacks in my cabin. It is too bad, but it can't  bo helped now. The detectives didn't have  the "dope" on me. The shovel I u.**ed I  threw into the bay. I didn't ii.s.e that electric light they found. If they had looked  they would have seen that it waa burned  out and wouldn't make a light. I used a  little patent bicycle gas lamp to light the  tunnel.  "Tho fact that I burned my clothes did  not appeal - to mc as strange, because I  ��� had boen for years and years in tho habit  of burning my old clothes. The shovel that  they found in my cabin, had been there for  .(_evcr_i._ years, and I (lid not use It in digging the tunnel. The marks they said were  made by my spade were made by another  Implement, which I threw into the water.  I planned how I would get rid of the bullion, without bringing suspicion on myself  long bofore I committed the robbery. I  planned to remove the gold from the bay  a bar at a time. I had Intended to melt the  ��� gold, to mix- it with an alloy and to dispose  of it in quantities that would bring me  about $10,000. Jt would have been a very  easy matter, at intervals of several months  to sell tho gold at different places. I intended to take several years in disposing  of the bullion.  "rf my plan had been successful to the  end, and if I had gained the wealth that  I stole, T would have not spent it in rich  display, but would have lived frugally and  simply as I do now. I would probably have  traveled in foreign countries. I had no  fixed idea in my mind when I stole the gold  Superintendent's Story.  Speaking of the robbery at tho Selby  smelting works near San Francisco, superintendent Van der Kopp said to a reporter recently:  "At 7 o'clook last Tuesday morning, two  hours after the vault was opened, I knew  that Winters was the man who did the job.  Four men saw him about tho smoltcr and  immediately reported tho fact to me as  soon as the robbery became known. Besides, AVinters' actions for some time previous had been the subject of much comment. On the" morning of the robbery I  said that the missing gold was not further  from the smelter than I could twice throw  a stone. I never changed my opinion. The  events of today have proved that my Idea  was correct. The sleuths have been strutting and bragging and claiming all. the  honor of the capture of Winters> "when  Crockett people know that tlieir pretensions were presumptious, as the man who  really solved tho mystery was an humble  employee, who named AVinters within an  hour after the vault was opened on Tuesday. Peter Donaldson is the man who lirst  thought that Winters committed tlie crime,  and many people here believe he should  share in the reward, at least to the extent  of some of the detectivs who had nothing  to do but to try weave to about the suspect  a chain of circumstantial evidence. Donaldson is a quiet, industrious man and his  experience as a Sherlock Holmes has been  "succesi*[irl but unfortunate. As a reward for  his services in pointing out AVinters' and  keeping a watch on the man on the morning of the' robbery, Donaldson was placed  under suspicion and a pretense made of  'sweating'' him.' He was never told of the  real value of his services, which" would  have mado the reputation ot a detective.  AVe have not mado any promise of clemency lo Winters, nor have we offered him  any money for telling us whore he had  hidden the gold bars. This you can state  emphatically. I know many 'people have  said that we were going to compromise  with the robber. All the money wo shall  pay out for the recovery of our bullion is  the $25,000 which we offered and whicli we  will pay as soon as it can be settled who  is entitled to it." Al this point the superintendent's smile became a laugh. "I  expeot. we shall have a gay time dcldins  to whom the reward muMt be paid,' he said.  "How shall you settle it?" was asked.  - "Oh, we shall not have to settle it, thank  goodness!"- he replied. "We'll take no part  whatsoever in airy dispute that may arise.  "If there is not an amicable agreement as to  the distribution of the money we shall put  it in escrow and let them fight for it. I  am particularly anxious not to seem to  favor any one particular or any particular  set of men. All have worked hard and  faithfully and havo accomplished wonders.  I knew Just about where AVinters had hidden the stuff. It you will remember, I  placed a watchman on.guard at this plnoo  where we are now taking out our bullion,  =and=kep"t=him==bri==duty=jiist^t^tlfa't^spof  until -the police assumed charge of the  case." I did this because I was afraid AAln-  ters had accomplices and that they might  come and take the stuff out of the water. ���  Still,, the detectives did a. great dear of  hard work, and I think that all the men  who took part in the case should get a  share of the money. They are very welcome to ti."  "When   did   AVinters   finally   make   his  confession?"  was asked.  "That," saitl .Mr. A*an der Ropp, "is one  of the questions I must not answer."  "AVas it yesterday afternoon?"  "Well, I shouldn't bother to guess any  mure." Then he laughed. "I can tell you  this: He made his confession to mo and  captain Lees and captain Seymour. It was  very brief. He merely said he had taken the  bullion, and he told us how he had done  it. It waa a remarkable sight to see thoso  detectives diving in the Icy cold water,  while old captain Lees stood 011 shore and  sent them in again and again. I was Anally obliged to tell him that he must let  detective Crockett come out of the water,  as I was afraid he would get pneumonia.  'Not much, said the old man; let him stay  in.' Lees was really, anxious to have the  other men get but the bullion. Crockett was  finally overeome with the cold, but he soon  recovered. Now, you know I told you I  could not be interviewed," concluded Mr.  A*on der Ropp, "so you must excuse me if  I don't say anything. By the was*," he  added, after a most suggestive pause, "I  am certain that AAlnters is not in his right  mind. He has been under a severe mental  strain for somo time."  Another pause.
