 I***:---.  ESTABLISHED   1892  FKJDA.Y  MOEOTNG,   AUGUST  23,   1901  DAILY- EDITION  DRY ORE ON TWELVE-MILE  PROPERTIES   BEING   DEVELOPED  IN THE DISTRICT.  Indicate a Sufficiency of Fluxing Ore  to Fill All Requirements of  Local Smelters,  W. H. Hinclicliffe of Slocan, who is  developing the Happy Medium and International properties on Twelye-mile,  is registered at the Queen's. He speaks  in the highest terms"of the dry ore belt  oii Twelve-mile and is of the opinion  that the" claims in it which are now receiving attention will soon remove all  anxiety on  the" part  of  local  smelters  for   an  ample  supply  of dry  ore   for  fluxing.  In the opinion of Mr.^Hinchcliffe the  :V. and M. group, which is being developed by a Vancouver syndicate, is the  most promising property on the creek.  The vein upon it is a true fissure in the  'granite. The group is situate about a  mile from the lake on Twelve-mile and  is being developed 'under the direction  of C. W. Harrington, who holds a large  block of the stock in the company owning the property. AcWy'e work has beeu  carried forward on it for some time  and with very good results, but the  company is now considering the advisability of installing a small power plant,  on the creek for the purpose of operating a compressor, the rock being so  hard that hard drilling has become very  expensive. Harrington's work upon the  group has shown it up in fine shape.  He has all told five short prospecting  tunnels run in on the main fissure. These  tunnels give a depth of about 100 feet  on the vein and for the greater part, are  in ore. Four of the tunnels have been  driven on the north "side of the creek  and the No. 2 on the south side. Tunnels Nos. 1, 2 and 3 are each in for about  50 feet. The No. 4 is run in for GO feet,  with a crocs-cut of 30 feet and. a'winze  of 20 feet; and the No. 5 tunnel-is in  about 60 feet. This work has shown  the ledge to be about five or six feel  wide, in which occurs a stringer of  quartz from IG to IS inches wide, the.  rest of the ledge being made up of  quartette. Tho values whicli occur in  the quartz are gold and silver and some  very, high assays have -j been received  from it. A small shipment" was ma'de  to the smelter from the run of the  ledge whicli gave returns of something  over ?50 to the ton. The assay values,  however, have been uniformly higher  than this, the gold returns in much of  It going as high as $75, with silver values away up in the hundreds of ounces.  The owners of the V. and M. expect to  ship some ore this winter.  The Happy Medium and Internationa]  properties which Mr. Hinclicliffe is personally interested in were staked by  himself in May last and are' now under ���  bond to R. B. Fishburn of this city. Or.  the surface the owners': have a big ore  showing, 100 feet lorigi-Trom which as-  ' says of $10 in gold; arid, phenomenal  values in silver; have- been received  The work done on the group cousistr  of a 50-foot cross-cut, which has just  broken into the ledge. There is a nice  showing of ore in the face of the tun-"  nel, but it is estimated that it will have  to be driven another 10 feet to get the  second wall. The present showing con-  =sists=ef=about=three^feetr=of=Tich-sul^  phide ore and two inches of galena.  Fred Benson .is' interested with Mr.  Hinclicliffe in the property and therr  is every likelihood of the bond upon it  being taken back.  About 1000 feet below the V. and M.  group is the Hamilton group owned by  Ralph Gill etti and p. number of other  Italians and they have seemingly struck  it rich. They have the ore exposed  on the. surface for about 400 feet, the  ledge carrying silver sulphides and native silver. Tlieir work consists of a  short tunnel driven in on the ledge for  50 feet and a lower tunnel driven in for  100 feet on a big ledge which runs at  right angles to the one upon which the  showing is. The ore in the ledge upon  which this tunnel has been driven carries some ore, but it is a low grade galena in which there appears to be more  or less zinc. To reach the ledge for  whicli they are driving with this crosscut the owners of the Hamilton will  have to go another 100 feet, whicli will  give them a pretty good depth on the  vein.  Charles Dempster of Rossland has become interested in the. district, having  purchased the Champion and Sapphire  properties from W. R. Harrington. These  properties adjoin the V. and M. on the  northwest and are supposed to have the  V. and M. lead. So far very little beyond surface work has been done upon  them. The vein has been stripped for  500 feet and is shown to be about three  feet wide, the croppings giving an assay  value of from $50 to $75 in gold and  silver. ���> iwif-E  Adjoining the V. and M. on the east is  the Coronation group, which has been  prospected by a number of open cuts  and drifts.. This property is owned by  James Smith and others. They appear  to have a-strong galena ledge which  assays high in silver. Nothing is being  done with it at present.  An'Ala'i-imx Fi-acaf.  BIRMINGHAM, Ala., August 22.���A  staff correspondent of the Birmingham  News telegraphs from Ashville, St.  Clare county, today saying that in a  battle wliich occurred there at 1 o'clock  between sheriff North's posse and a mob  of 400 men, who were seeking to lynch  James Brown, the negro rapist   from  Springville, three men were wounded,  two fatally. The mob disappeared for  t.ho time being. Brown was tried at a  special term of court this morning and  sentenced to be hanged September 20th.  The trial lasted two hours and the jury  was out 11 minutes. When it became  noised about that the court had directed  the sheriff to take the prisoner back to  Birmingham for safe keeping, a mob  surrounded the court where Brown was  being guarded bp the sheriff and deputies. The mob demanded the prisoner  and the sheriff informed them that he  would shoot the first man that put his  foot on the court house steps. In a  few miinites one of the mob dashed up  the steps firing a revolver, A general  fusillade followed. The sheriff's force  fired through the .windows and doors  and the mob retreated, tiring as they  went. Walter Blankenship was shot  through the'head. Arthur Blankenship  was shot in the head and shoulders with  buckshot. Both will die. A boy named  Hanby was shot in the head. Owing to  a heavy rain the mob sought shelter in  nearby stores. The sheriff is still in the  court house and is trying to open communication with the governor in order  to get troops. Another attack on the  court house is feared.  THE MEN GO BACK TO WORK  AND THE ARLINGTON MINE DIFFICULTY IS SETTLED.  A   Managing  Director   Who   Is   Not  Above Holding a Conference  With His Men.  Bad Fire in the Snowsheds  TRUCKEE, Cal., August 22.���A terrific fire is raging in the snowsheds this  side of the summit. The Larteview station has burned, and at last'accounts  2500 feet of snowsheds were destroyed,  and the fire is yet uncontrolled. The  fire trains from Summit and Truckee are  trying to check its progress, but a  strong wind is blowing and all efforts  have: been in vain. Limited No. 1,  westbound, is at tunnel No. 12.,  At 3 o'clock this afternoon the fire  was completely under control, and by  G o'clock the timbers had burned out  and the roadbed cooled clown, so that  400 workmen began clearing the debris  and laying new ties and rails. They will  work all night and will have the track  fully repaired by morning. The wind  blew a galeduring the day, but tonight  it is calm and the forest fires which  started on either side of the burning  sheds are under control.  CRESCEUS THE TURF KINC  His Performance Yesterday.  READVILLE, Mass., August 22.���The  celebrated  Cresceus,  who,  through  his  record  of 2:02  1-4,  is  the king of all  trotters   and   leader   of   the   turf,   was  the magnet today to draw almost 15,000  people to the grand circuit here.   As a  sort of recognition of the favors shown  him in the way of applause when he appeared on the track, the chestnut horse  proceeded in the second heat of his winning race with Lord Derby and Charley  ; Herr-to ..lower, the track record for the  mile by three-quarters of a second and  the world's record of final quarters by  trotting the distance in 29 3-4.   By this  latter performance Cresceus lowered the  record of 30 seconds for the final quarter  which he himself made at Detroit about  a month ago, when he did the mile in  2:05.   The accomplishment of today was  not the fastest quarter of all kinds, for  Peter the Great and Timmy Bratton did  the second quarter of a heat at Lexington, Ky., several years ago in 29 12 seconds.    Something' of  the  interest was'  j-emoved  from  the free-for-all  trot for  a purse of $2500 when Charley Herr, who  was driven by the owner, was distanced  in the first heat, thus leaving the affair  to Cresceus and Lord Derby, and there  were some who saw the big race who believed that the Geer gelding would have  done something wonderful in jhejLecoruL  'aiid^IasMreat'hUcrhe^iro'rbroken coming  home, for on the last of the bend he was  in front of the world's favorite.   All the  horses got a good reception at the scoring and when they were off in the first  heat Charley Hen* had the pole, with  Lord   Derby  beside  him   and   Cresceus  on the outside.    At the three-quarters  Lord Derby was breathing onto Ketch-  urn's back.   Coming home the driver got  all he could out of his gelding, but the  mighty strides of Cresceus brought him  ahead by a half length.   The time was  2:07 1-4.    In  the second heat Cresceus  drew away from Lord Derby, until at  the half he was two lengths to the good.  At   the   three-quarters   the   Kentucky  horse had his nose qt Cresceus' wheel  and a little later he was ahead of Cresceus, but at that moment Lord Derby  broke and it was all over.  SLOCAN, August 22.���[Special to The  TribuneJ���The difficulty at the Arlington mine has been settled and11 the men  return   to  work  in  the    morning.    J.  Frank   Collom,   managing  director    of  the company, came up from Nelson at  request of the men yesterday and again  today and several conferences were held_,  between him and a committee from the  employees, tlie union setting the difficulty to one side as a" matter of local  origin only.    Throughout the deliberations the best of feeling prevailed and  concessions were made by both, sides. A  majority of the men remained here since  the trouble.   There is no feeling whatever between the men and the management and harmony prevails, the men in  particular  expressing    themselves  well  satisfied -with Mr.  Cullom's treatment.  The  latter " wishes  to    deny that    differences exist between himself, and superintendent DuBois.    There is a great  feeling of relief here over the settlement.  Rossland Strike Notes.  ROSSLAND, August 22.���[Special to  The Tribune.]���There is a special meeting of mine managers in progress this  ovening at the B. A, C. offices. J. Roderick Robertson, J. J, Campbell and  other Nelson men: are.: in attendance.  The. object of the .meeting has not been  given out, but it is supposed to be-in  connection with the strike.  It was announced here positively this  evening that Whitaker: Wright had resigned from the; Le Roi directorate this  morning and tliat a preliminary meeting of shareholders would be held in  London tomorrow to arange matters for  tho formal meeting on August 29.  The union men at Northport have  beeu advised . that the injunction obtained from judge Hanford is valueless  and they will in future pay no attention  to it.  During the jast two days efforts havo  been openly made to induce, the smelter'  and federal authorities at Northport. to  arrest some of the strikers, but'for some  reason- the arrests have not-been made  and the inference is that the injunction  proceedings are invalid and have no  force.  Bernard MacDonald is making preparations io_ unload some of the lumber  cars at the Black Bear grounds and  there are other indications which point  to an attempt to work with non-union  men.    .,' ' -���..-- '  The Geiser proposition is regarded as  a bluff and the union men decline to  discuss it seriously.  strongest weapon in such cases is silence  and submission until it is demonstrated  that tlie mills cannot bo operated successfully without tlie aid of the skilled  .men now on strike. The steel mon, on  the other hand, are highly pleased with  their success in manning the Star plant  and say that if the men they secure aro  not molested it will be only a short timo  until all of their mills will bo iii full  operation and doing good work. While  the strikers claim that four of the'new-  men at the Star plant have deserted  the company and say that others would  leave if they could got out of tho mill,  superintendent Harper maintains that  he has 100 men at work; that none have  deserted and that the men can go and  come from the mills as they please. Mr.  Harper says that the plant will be in  smooth running order tonight and he  apprehends no further difficulty iu its  operation.  The Painter mill has 250 men at work  and the management expect to-be running full handed by next week. Two  mills are being operated at the Lindsay  and McCutcheon plant, one of.them the  ten-inch mill. No sign of a break in the  Carnegie upper and lower iron plants  made its appearance today.  McKeesport is still completely tied  up, but an attempt may be made to  start the De Muler Iron Works tonight  with men secured from outside points.  At Irondale the Tin Plate Company  gained another victory today by a sue-  cessfuL start of one of the rollers.  YACHTS  AND YACHTSMEN  ANOTHER TRIAL BETWEEN COLUMBIA AND CONSTITUTION.

He Says He Has a Contract to Work  the Le Roi Mine and Will Begin Work at Once.  No Bids for the Fight  SAN FRANCISCO, August 22.���A  hitch has arisen in the arrangements for  the proposed Jeffries-Ruhlin fight. When  the fighters' representatives met today  no sealed bids for the fight were in evidence. It was announced that the clubs  had agreed not to put in bids until certain clauses of the agreement made by  the fighters Tuesday should be modified. The clubs wish to have the $2500  bond clause eliminated, also the one pertaining to the referee. The clubs' objection to George Siler for referee is on  the grounds that the supervisors will  not issue n permit if the referee shall  be chosen outside of the state. It has  developed that the clubs have an understanding with each other and are  willing to give up 65 per cent of the  receipts. Madden and Delaney are holding out for 65 per cent and $500 training expenses.  Eastern Baseball.

GREENWOOD, August 22.���[Special  to The Tribune.]���A company has beeu  incorporated with tbe name of the  Beaverdell -Townsite Company to ac-  ai.iire the neighboring twin cities of  Beaverton and Rendelh situated np__the_  ^vest^forlrro"f"1C?ft'l(TT"iver and which  have for some time past been rivals for  the trade and resident population in  that promising mining section of the  Boundary country. Added to the conflicting stories of the opposing townsites  there were disputes relative to the  rights of the respective pre-emptors of  the land covered by part of Beaverton.  Finally after much ill feeling had been  aroused and money wasted in litigation  a successful endeavor was made to induce all parties financially interested  in the disputed lands in Rendell  to amalgamate their interests and to  co-operate in trying to make one good  town at the junction of Beaver creek  with tho wost fork of Kettle rivor, distant about forty miles from Rock creek.  The name of Beaverdell was mutually  agreed upon ns the name for the town  and the capital of the company fixed at  $50,000, in $1 shares assessable to face  value. The company acquires Mrs. W.  T. Thompson's pre-emption, on which  is the Beaverton townsite; Gus Wheat-  ley's pre-emption nnd that of J. T.  Bell, the last includin.-j the Reiulell  townsite, the whole comprising about  seven hundred acres. There are already  several hotels, stores and a sawmill established and James W. Crier, lately  manager of the now defunct Greenwood  Miner, has taken a small printing plant  up there and will shortly issue a newspaper d3votecI-to the interests of the  West Fork country. Theie are in the  vicinity some mineral claims tliat have  already been shown to be prospects of  considerable worth and those familiar  with the country predict for it a prosperous future as soon as a good wagon  road shall have been completed to it.  '       Progress of the Steel Strike.  PITTSBURG, August 22. ��� Aside  from the partial equipment of the Star  plant of the American Tinplate Company and the preparation for its immediate resumption of business there was  no special developments in tbe strike  situation in this city today. No further  trouble occurred at the Pennsylvania  Tube Works, and at all other strike  points quiet reigns. The incident at  the Star plant this morning is given as  an example of special significance and  to use an Amalgamated official's expression shows that the men have boen  educated  to tho  knowledge  that' their  SPOKANE, August 22.���Bernard MacDonald, manager of the.Le Roi at Rossland, hopes to start work on the property soon, fie has Ict a contract to Al  Geiser of Baker City, Oregon, to produce  at least 150 tons of ore daily from the  ;mine. Mr. Geiser has also secured a  contract for $132,000 worth of work to  be done around the smelter at North-  port. The job includes tlio production  of 300 tons of lime rock daily. That'tonnage is enough to keep the five furnaces  busy on ore. It is presumed that the  management expects to work the smelt--  er at its full capacity.  There are perhaps 75,000 tons of ore on.  .hand at the smeltei* now. That would  be enough to keep the smelter busy at  full capacity only about eight -weeks.  It is expected^ therefore, that an effort will be made to work the Le Roi  also at its full capacity. The contract  with Mr. Geiser only calls for mining  150 tons per day, but that is a minimum  figure, and Mr, Geiser willbe at liberty  to mine as much additional ore as he.  can  produce.  The question of getting men for the  new contractor **-������ an engrossing one.  The alien labor law of British Columbia  is very strict. It not only bars bringing  in laborers under contract, written or  implied, but it also forbids tho contractor to advertise in a foreign country that he will do work in British Columbia and can use men.  =^M-*,^Geisei:=hopes=that=he=can=get=the=  union men at Rossland to work for him,  as they have no strike against him,  since when working for him as contractor they will not be working for the  company.  The following dispatch to the Spokesman-Review from Baker City gives details of Mr.  Gciscr's project:  MR.   GEISER'S PROJECT.  BAKER CITY, Oregon, August 22.���  Albert Geiser, president of the Citizens'  bank and former owner* of the famous.  Bonanza mine, said today:  "While in Northport I took a contract to deliver daily 300 tons of limo to  the Northport smelter.  "Another contract 1 mado was for  quarrying and excavating the stone (or  the now converting and refinery plant to  he erected at once by the Northport  Smelting & Refining company. This  rcfiining plant will be a very largo institution and will require hundreds of  tons of stone in its erection and the  employment of many workmen of all  classes.  "I have also contracted to grade three  miles of roadbed for tho new electric  road which is being built by tho smelter  company. For this work I will need a  large number of laborers and mechanics  of all kinds. The smelter company has  now under way and in contemplation  in the immediate future an immense  amount of improvement. The company is building an entirely new town  at Northport and will employ many  hundreds of men at good wages.  "For the work whicli I have undertaken to do for this company I will need  at once 500 men. I want miners, engineers, blacksmiths and laborers and you  can say that I will have work for everyone who calls at my now .office, whicli  I will open tomorrow. Tho wage scale  will be made known on application.  "I made a contract while in Rossland  with tlie Le Roi Mining Company, limited, by which I have agreed to extract  daily from the Le Roi Group ISO tons  of ore."    REFUSES TO DISCUSS IT.  ROSSLAND, August 22.���Bernard  MacDonald, manager of tho Lc Roi  mine, when shown the statements in  tbis morning's Spokosinan-Rcvii-w. refused to either deny or confirm Goiser's  statements. He would not discuss the  question.  OPSTER BAY, L. I., August 23.���Flying the flag of the Seawannaka Corinthian Yacht Club, the Constitution  dropped anchor off the club's house late  yesterday afternoon and this morning  her crew was ready on deck to prepare  the" intended cup defender for another  race with her rival, the Columbia. The  race today was for a cup offered by  former commodore SchutJo of the club  and the regatta committee planned to  send-the yachts over a 15-mile course  similar to the one that was sailed at  Larchmont last week. The conditions  for a good race were not particularly  favorable early today. _ 7    i    .  ��� During the morning word was received  that sir Thomas Lipton would not be  able to see today's race, but that-1 he,  would be down on Saturday for the race  on that day. Arrangements have: been  niade to tender sir Thomas; a dinner  on Saturday evening and it is expected  that vice-president- Roosevelt will also  be present, as well as the managers of  the Constitution and Columbia.  The committee at 1:20 p.'iri. signaled  the course, which was twice around a  triangle of 14 3-4 miles as follows: A  close reach of 3,1-2 miles to a stake-  boat north northwest of the start; a  beat down the sound a little north of  cast for a distance 4of 5 1-4 miles and  then a run to the starting line of 5 3-4  miles. The total distance twice around  was 29 1-2 miles. Tho preparatory signal was fired at 1:30 and the start was  made at 1:35. The wind was then blow-,  ing at about four knots from the east.  Columbia won by one minute 37 seconds corrected time. The finish time  was as follows: Columbia, 5:23:40; Constitution,1 5:25:17.  OYSTER   BAY,   August   22.���[Night  Report.]���-The Columbia gave the Constitution  a good  sound   beating  today  twice'   around  the   Zanhaka triangular*  course.    On corrected time the old boat  won by two minutes aiid five seconds  and en elapsed "..time by 1 minute 39 seconds. ��� But: the'-'figures .'do--.not represent  the decisiveness of'the Columbia's victory, for as a matter of fact she beat  the boat twice.    The first time around  the triangle of 14 3-4 miles she gained  over five minutes and then a shift of  wind on the short leg across the sound  put the Constitution upon even terms,  when a new race was practically started,  the wind now coming true again.   This  time the Columbia gained over a minute  and a fifth.   It Avas a day of flunky sound  breezes,  but if  either  got any advantage from  the changes in the wind it  was  the  Constitution.    The  new  boat  did not seem to have any of the speed  she has shown  in  light air.    She was  sluggish  on  the  starting line  and  although" the two  yachts crossed  almost  at the same minute with a onc:gun start  the  Columbia romped  off and  took  a  leadc-of one-eighth of. a mile, while the  Constitution  was  gathering way.    The  r.C.o nsUtuti on=was=tr-yi n g=a=n e w=m ai n sai 1=  and  drew very  badly  during the  first  round,  but  it  kept getting better  and  better and for the- last 15 miles of the  course was  drawin**-_vcry well.    Then,  too, the club sail  was at most use in  tlio windward work.    But all this does  not account for  her defeat.    Even  on  tho last leg of the race in a close run  for thn home, while both boats had exactly the samo wind and fhe Constitution's sails were apparently drawing for  all they were worth, the Columbia added  over a* minute to her lead.    Witli the  international contest loss than a month  away,   today's  race  reopens  the  whole  cup defender proposition and the yacht-  men arc guessing again.   Tho two boats  will  start again  over  the same course  on Saturday.   This will bo their last race  before tho trial at Newport.  NEW YORK. August 22.���Sir Thomas  Lipton started down the bay this morning, bound for his yacht, tho Erin. Ho  was accompanied by the hon. L. Russet,  representative of the Royal Ulster Yacht  Club; J. B. KilOard of the Clyde Yacht  Club and David Barrie. In reply to inquiries sir Thomas said: "I do not expect to return to the city until the races  are over. AVe go to Tompkinsville now.  where tho Erin is anchored. If there  is a good wind we will sail the Shamrock II this afternoon. On Saturday we  will go and see the Constitution-Colum-1  bia race off Oyster Bay. This afternoon's  trip of the Shamrock will be merely a  sail to stretch her canvas." Asked what  he thought his chances were of taking  the cup back with him, "sir Thomas  smiled pnd said: ''Really, you know  almost as much about the matter as 1  do, but I will prophesy that v."* -  givo whichever boat is chosen "as defender a good close race for the cup."  Sir Thomas was informed last night,  it is said, that C, Oliver Iselin would  accept the bet of S25.000 offered by C.  Arthur Pearson of London on the Sham-  roc!: II.  NEW YORK, August 22.���Sir Thomas  Lipton's new challenger for the American cup. Shamrock- If, had her first spin  in Now York lower bay, and although  it only lasted 90 minutes it. was a most  satisfactory performance from stirt to  finish. Sir Thomas Upton and designer  Watson, both of whom wero. on board  the yacht, during her trial, expressed  themselves as perfectly satisfied with  tho result. In sailing about night miles  dead to windward  against a two-knot  tide, she covered the distance in 57.miu-  utes and the reach back of six miles iu  40  minutes.    The wind  was  fresh  and  fairly steady from about south by oast  and of 10 to 12 knots' strength.    The  yacht carried mainsail, working topsail,  forestays and jib.   After the yacht's anchor was down, sir Thomas boarded the  Associated  Press tug and, told  the re-��  porter that the Shamrock" would go out  for a long trial spin tomorrow, extending to Sandy Hook and perhaps, if there  was clear weather and a good breeze,  she might, try to coyer vthe America's  cup course outside the Hook or 15 miles  to windward and back.   Sir Thomas with  a party of three guests will go to Oyster  Bay in the Erin on Saturday to wituess  the races between the Constitution aud  Columbia on'Long Island sound under  the management of.the Seawannaka-Co-  rinthian Yacht Club, whose guest he will  be at dinner that day.  FRANCO - TURKISH MUDDLE  LITTLE UNEAS1NSSS MANIFESTED  BY FRENCHMEN.  Another Battle.  NEW YORK, August 22.��� Dr. A. J.  Restrepo, diplomatic agent of the liberal  party now attempting to take possession  of the government in Colombia,' received  a dispatch today from the liberal agent;  at Quito announcing another battle with  the , government forces. The dispatch  was as follows: "Quito, August*20.���-The  expected battle near Pasto was fought  on Saturday, the 17th, ancL.the liberal:  generals won a triumph over the clericals." Through his secretary, Dr. Res-  prepo explained that-Pasto, where the  battle was reported. to have been fought,  was in the extreme southern part of  Colombia, 200 miles from where general  ;Uribe was operating and that it. indicated successful execution of the plans  of campaign mapped Out by -general  Uribe and forwarded to the commanding  officers of the other liberal forces before  the general left New York early in the  summer.

PARIS, August 22.���The approaching  visit of the czar to France largely overshadows interest taken in the Franco-  Turkish incident, growing out of the  French claims at Constantinople, which,  as cabled to the Associated Press yesterday, resulted in M. Constans, the  j French ambassador at Constantinople,  severing diplomatic relations with the*  porte. .The apathy of the public concerning the dispute with Turkey is reflected by the comments of the newspapers. They generally express confidence in a peaceful settlement of the  dispute.  .���/According to the foreign office officials this afternoon tnere is no news  and no change in the Turkish situation.  It"was'noticeable that the officials were  more reticent than yesterday. While  resserting tljat no naval demonstration  is contemplated, they refuse to confirm  or deny the truth of the news contained  in a special dispatch saying that three"  .battleships and a cruiser, which arrived  at Toulon'this morning, aro taking coal  and provisions on board. They said they  had no information on the subject. Perhaps it is-not lacking in significance  that M; Deschancl, president of the"  chamber of deputies, who was attending tlie council-general at Chartres, suddenly went to Rambouriet this morning  to see president Loubet, and also that  M. Delcasse, the minister of foreign affairs, leaves the council-general _of  Arile and returns to Paris tomorrow'to-  attend a specia! meeting of the cabinet, ,  called, it is asserted, to arrange the"  program for the reception and entertainment of the czar. In the meanwhile tlie Turkinh ambassador,^ Munir  Bey," is absent and at tho Turkish embassy, only: minor oilicials aro visible.  They assume an air of absolute indifference and; ignorance of the whole affair.  Most of the diplomats are away for  the summer holidays, hence it is difficult to obtain a consensus of opinion.  Talking.to the correspondent of the Associated Press one of the oldest officials,  who has been-connected "with the diplomatic corps for over 25 years, said:  "The sultan's hand contains one trump  just now. It is not likely that Krance  will run the risk of opening the question  on the eve of the czar's visit."  The newspapers here under the influence of the overwhelming joy at  the czar's approaching visit are  paying scant attention to Constantinople, and generally are  taking the viow that the matter will  soon be settled to France's satisfaction.  "The coming of the czar te causing intense satisfaction throughout the country. The councils-general are now sitting and even those in which the opponents of the government aro in the majority are passing resolutions warmly  congratulating president Loubet and the  ministry on the occasion of the czar's  visit, which is regarded as a happy result of the government's foreign policy.  =Thc=-Temps- has-a:r���official���note-this  afternoon on the lines of the interview  whicli tho correspondent of the Associated Press obtained yesterday with a high  official of the foreign oflice, saying:  "The rupture as yet is only the personal act of M. Constans, the French  ambassador at Constantinople, and will  only become officially complete if the  sultan persists in his present attitude,  in which case, as Munir Bey is absent  from France, it will only be necessary  to notify him not to return until diplomatic  relations are resumed."  Honolulu Affairs.  HONOLULU, August 11, via San Francisco, jVugust 22.���United States judge  Estcs rendered a decision in which ho  declares that all the Chinese born in  the Hawaiian Islands are American citizens, no matter what government they  were born  under.  Arrangements have been made by  territorial treasurer Wright wheroby  thc warrants that aro outstanding will  be paid by borrowing $150,000 from two  local banks.  A special meeting of the Planters'  Association has been called to discuss  the labor question. There is a shortage  of labor throughout the group. No more  negroes are wanted, as they have not  proved good workmen and have been  very troublesome.  The plumbers strike, which has been  in progress for over a year, has been  amicably settled. The plumbers demanded ?G a day; a compromise was effected  at  ?5.50.  A deal is said to be on between the  Wilic Steamship company and the Inter Island Steam Navigation company  to consolidate the two companies. They  have control of nearly all the inter-  island passenger and freight trafiic, running about 25 steamet-s.  The question of the constitution and  the flag is not yet settled in Hawaii,  as applying to criminal matters. The  supreme court has just begun a special  term to consider the cases of a number  of prisoners released by the circuit court  on the ground that they were illegally  convicted, because after annexation they  were found guilty and sentenced on verdicts of nine jurors. The supreme court  here heard lengthy arguments on tho  question yesterday. There are about  25 convicts whose cases depend on the  decision of the question and civil interests are also at stake.  *l  if  I  !!  !  : 21  Zit  ' * I  -i.'

It gives  -him a monopoly to take from ground,  whose boundaries are defined, all the  minerals therein; minerals that once extracted and sold are no longer an asset  of the province. The minerals so extracted may yield the miner millions  in profit, or they may not yield him a  dollar. The job printer who gets nothing from the province, except the protection of its laws, is required to pay  taxes on the value of his plant, and pay  it every year whether he makes a profit  or a loss. The miner, who gets special  concessions from which millions are  sometimes realized, is not required to  pay a dollar in taxes on either his realty  or his personalty; he is only required to  pay 2 per cent on the value of the mineral actually mined, and the tax is then  not levied on the full value of the mineral, but only on its value after the costs  of transporting it and smelting.it are  deducted. The job printer pays an annual tax on his capital; the miner pays  taxes on something that he gets from  the province through the employment  of capital.  The statement is made that neither  the Canadian Pacific Railway Company  nor the men financially interested in  the company could secure tne services  of mechanics or laborers to erect a refinery or smelter at Nelson or any other  point in Kootenay, because of the sympathy felt by mechanics and laborers  for the trackmen who are on strike  against the Canadian Pacific railway.  Men who make such statements and repeat them are fit subjects for a lunatic  asylum. Were it announced tomorrow  that the Canadian Pacific Railway Company had decided to build a refinery  and smelter at some point in Kootenay,  and that the wages prevailing in the district would be jQaid for mechanics and  laborers, there . would he . no lack of  applications for work. Kootenay is not  the only section of Canada in which  the trackmen of the Canadian Pacific  have gone on strike, and it would be'  just as reasonable to contend that mechanics and laborers would refuse to  work on a C. P. R. refinery and smelter  at Montreal as at Nelson.  ^^^^^^^���^^^^^^���^���^^-^  f|i   ^&^-��T��'00'eZ.^.00.  f^ff''0^'00'00'00'00'007^'00^^^Si^f^'f^7^f^ if} ^r^-^r^t^^*^:^:^:  **&  fpzzx_axxxzx_z--Zxiz__xixiixzxxzi--Xziizx-.a_i_zxs  to  to  i!

The Rossland Miner says that the people of Nelson are "knocking" the town  of Rossland; that they .write.--blue-ruin  letters to the east regarding that town;  that they even attempted to keep the circus from going to Rossland.-   There are  "knockers" in 'every town,;and Nelson  is no exception;   The statement that the  people of Nelson are "knocking" Rossland is simply silly rot;   Rossland is  passing through a period of depression  .caused by a difference between the mine  managers on the one side; and several  'hundred miners on the other.    People  will comment on existing conditions, and  their comments are not likely to be all  one way.    The Tribune probably fairly  represents public opinion in Nelson, and  no word has appeared in its columns  that  could  possibly  be   construed   as  "knocking" Rossland.   The Miner is now  and has been doing its best to "knock"  the   province���and   misery   loves   company. *      ":' -  -      .���     -'. . -  - The Vancouver World says it is time,  that British ColuniDia should he given  representation in the Laurier government, and advocates the claims of Maxwell of Vancouver for the honor.

The  professor, surveying international relations from the standpoint of a political  philosopher,   observes   that   while  the  French  revolution  was   occasioned   by  the abuses of the privileged classes, the  present situation has  been caused  by  a revolution   of material   Institutions.  The declining national sentiment should  be replaced by a movement for the common defense of Central European states  against the American trusts, which are  moving to conquer the foreign markets  more surely than they could by battleships.    The American balance of trade  has reached an,unparalleled figure.    It  was a serious Question 'if .the present  political units of Central Europe were  strong enough to make an effective defense, taking into account the physical  conditions.   The present shifting of the'  center of gravity of the world's forces  would create three great units���China,  , Russia and America.   When China was  equipped with railroads the people would  find that she had the most capable merchants and the cheapest labor.   Russia  would have the largest army and the  greatest peasant state.    European capital would flow to the United States and  would *be'--an important increase to her  economic prosperity.*  'Of the three the  United  States had  decidedly the lead.  Its   policy ��� was   commercial   aggression  beyona* a doubt   and   states   like   the  American union and Russia had gained  far more in the way of the mobilization  of their powers from the construction of  railroads than such countries as  Germany and France.

There   could    only   be   ono  answer to such a question, and it should  be as follows:    The province of British  Columbia does not give the man engaged  in job printing any special concessions;  it does not give him anything that could  possibly   be   construed   as   a-  valuable  asset;   by  no  possible   combination   of  circumstances could the man engaged at  job printing make a large sum of money,  not even if he owned every job printing  oflice   in   the  province.     On   the  other  hand, the province does give the mine  owner a special concession; it does give  him something that is considered in all  members from British Columbia. The  place should go to senator Templeman of  Victoria, for he is the worthiest Grit of  them all. If he would not have it, then  it should be given to "Bill" Galliher of  Kootenay or Ralph Smith of Nanaimo.  Every printing oflice in British Columbia could be purchased outright for  $500,000. These printing offices pay the  province in the neighborhood of $5000  a year in taxes. The mines in British  Columbia could not be purchased for  $.100,000,000. Do the mines pay taxes  aggregating $1,000,000, Would not one-  fifth of that sum be nearer what they  pay?   There must be something rotten in the  management of the Le Roi mine at  Rossland, when its manager abdicates  his authority and control over the men  employed in the mine and allows a middleman to boss the job. Such methods  are a trifle coarse, but none of Bernard  McDonald's methods as a union smasher  are refined.          . The census returns when first published gave Calgary a population of  12,12S. These figures appeared a trifle  high even to the people of Calgary. The  returns were incorrect, and the population of Calgary is 4894.  Mine managers say that once a strike  occurs the good miners leave the country, and few of them ever return. Mine  managers then should do everything in  their  power  to prevent strikes.  Railway superintendents, like mine  managers, should keep out of print. Saw  wood and say nothing.  Political Philosophy.

With a horde of vigilant man-hunters, in pursuit, neither resting by day nor  sleeping by night, M. D. Landis is hidden away in the depths of an Oregon  forest and the far-reaching linger of  justice has thus far failed-to point to  the spot where he may be captured.  M. D. Landis, fugitive, fleeing from the  law, to which, beyond doubt, he has  done most fearful outrage, is the real  estate and timber asent of Coquille  City; Oregon, wanted for a series of alleged crimes; wanted, indeed, for foul  play wliich has resulted in the robbery and murder of men whom, at various times, he enticed into the woods  under pretext of showing them certain  lands whicli lie had offered for sale.  Not since the capture of the Australian aroh-fiend, Frank Butler, arrested  in San Francisco and hanged in ' the  country that he had chosen for the  [i operating fleld of his cold-blooded criminality, has so extraordinary a depth of  iniquity been brought to-light. Human  slaughter for the purpose of robbery  was Butler's mania; not the mania of an  insane man, but the mania of a totally  depraved, inhuman creature ��� who, for  ' the dollars that he could gain by such  ghoulish means, plottedvwith a deliberation well nigh inconceivable the destruction of his victims, then lured them to  a violent death in the mountain fastnesses of Australia."  Butler's method was almost identical  rj*-with that of Landis.   So was his object.  He wove a net about his prey as a spider  entangles a fly.    Plis guilt was proven  upon him indisputably. Though an ocean  rolled between him and his buried victims, he was run to cover and taken  back to the scenes of his frightful-exploits, and there the, deaths of the men  . he had murdered were avenged.  Landis is believed to be the counterpart of Butler in the character of the  crimes he is accused of committing in  " Oregon; in the brutality of his. designs  on human life and the. sordid desires  that impelled him to carry his plans  into effect. Will he, like' Butler, lind  that the great round earth is too small  a place, after all, for a; human speck,  among the countless millions of other  human specks upon its surface, to elude  justice? Will he,, like Butler, be pronounced guilty and sent to an ignominious doom upon the scaffold?  What will happen if the Oregon forest  betrays its secret���the secret of Landis'  .lurking place?  Meanwhile the excitement in the Coquille River district is intense. Oflicers  are. exploring the country in, every direction, determined that Landis shall  not slip through their fingers, eager to  have the satisfaction, professional and  personal, of capturing the man who  has been for months la menace in their  midst; the man who, working to conclusion the desperate deeds that originated  in his brain, has been tolerated as a business associate by the peaceful, honest  law-abiding citizens of the community  in wliich he dwelt.:  It would_seein impossible for Landir  Robt.

Nor are the police the only  obstacle that a fleeing criminal, such  as Landis is believed to be, has reasor  to fear, citizens everywhere, includinc  even the children, are watching for him.  The detective force has thus far beer-  augmented to a degree that leaves the  suspected man little chance to find a  loophole that will lead to freedom.  If Landis entrapped prospective buyers into the lonely woods, there to roi*  and make way with them, their number  is unknown to_any save himself; the lisl  of his sins is his own terrible secret.  Nor will any one ever be able to hazard  a guess as to how many lives would  have been sacrificed had Landis not beer  seen in the perpetration of his last devilish deed, tho burying of the body of  J. B. Budaily.  It happened that Landis was detectec1  in this act by two young boys, berry  hunting in an unfrequented part ot thr  woods. They saw him digging, and their  childish imaginations pictured the motive to their own satisfaction���he war  burying gold.. They kept out of hif  sight, and when he was gone crept tr  the .spot where the freshly upturned  earth, which they supposed concealed  buried treasure, had been carefully covered with twigs and leaves.  Here was excitement extraordinary for  the country bred youngsters. To find  hidden gold was like living the thrillinr  romances that they had read with round-  eyed wonder. They plunged their strong,  brown fists into the soft earth and flung  it in handfuls from them, digging like  a couple of gophers���arid then���  They disclosed a man's coat. Therp  was a body within it; they could feel  it and the horrible truth burst in upon  their understanding.  Scrambling to their feet the lads rar  as fast as their nimble legs, hastened  "by fright, could carry them to their  father and told him of their discovery.  Because of that incident M. D. Landir  has disappeared from his place of business and all Oregon is alive with people  ���anxious to apprehend him.  Landis was long-headed in his scheming. He managed to cover up his tracks  so that no intimation of evil would  direct suspicion against iiim. When his  ���victims disappeared he headed off i  quiries for them by forging letters from  them to their friends. He had thought  out evory detail, apparently, with success. But there was one thing that he  had not calculated upon���the fact that,  upon a certain day in a certain week  and at a certain hour and moment, two  pairs of exceedingly bright young eyes,  diverted from' their search for the salmon berries that grow so abundantly  in Oregon, would be observing him  while he was stealthily putting the finishing touches to his latest deed of violence, fancying' himself unseen and,  therefore, quite safe.  Less than six months ago Landis arrived in Coquille City, opened an office  and advertised himself as a real estate  and timber agent. To all appearances  he was a desirable acquisition to the  business life of the locality. Today,  such are the changes that can take place  within a few months, the citizens there  have $1000 ready to'liand over to the  person who sjicceeds in capturing him  out in thev Oregon timber. They subscribed this amount as soon as Landis  disappeared, for his flight proved to  them his guilt. , :;  The missing real estate broker confined his murderous operations to  strangers, taking no chances with any  one whose failure to reappear in the  vicinity would cause alarm. Of course,  he did not slay all of his patrons. That  would have been utter folly, even had  it been sufficiently profitable. It was  only now and then he rode into the  timber lands and returned to town alone  and upon.:each!of these-occasions he was  shrewd enough to make plausible explanation, casually remarking that his  customer had not liked the property  shown him and to save time had proceeded directly to the coast to catch a  steamer to the north or south. When-7  ever there seemed any likelihood of' inquiries being made which would be awkward for the agent to answer, he would  forge letters calculated to throw off the  track any person who might trace the  missing man.  Notwithstanding the astuteness with  which Landis schemed, the coolness  which never deserted him, the care he  exercised to avoid a hint of suspicion,  he has finally fallen into the very trap  that he set for others���the forest he  had chosen' for a; burial ground/ That  he will cheat the'law is scarcely probable. Wide and deep though the Oregon  woods may be, a man cannot subsist  upon its trees <and mosses. Landis is  likely to starve there if he does not walk  into the waiting arms of an officer or the  custody of some citizen to whom the joy  of securing $1000. in cash and the honor  of landing the hunted man over to the  authorities is keeping him constantly  upon the alert. It is thought that he  may attempt to reach California, therefore the oilicials in the northern part  of the state are keeping a sharp lookout  for him.  It would be difficult for Landis to escape, even though he were cleverly disguised. One thousand dollars reward is  a remarkable incentive toward taking  prisoner one of the worst criminals  of the century���providing Landis is the  monster that Oregon declares him to.be.  Landis is described as about 40 years  of age, with whiskers of a sandy color,  hair the same hue, a body that inclines  somewhat to  the left, jj^j^ayy^tread,  Nelson Branch���Burns Block, 221 Baker  Street.

Coquille, as a  convenient spot for carrying out Landis' diabolical-, schemes, could scarcely  have been improved upon.  Eudaily had a comparatively small  sum of money with him���about $250.  When found, his throat had been cut  and his heart pierced by a sharp instrument. Landis, suspecting that he was  being shadowed, adroitly escaped by  sauntering carelessly out of his hotel,  turning a corner, and clearing the town  by a roundabout route.  Will he succeed: in slipping through  the net spread by the law,: That is the  question that, above all others, interests Oregon now.  to  to  to  to  9}  toto  Established in Nelson 1890.

His eyes have a squinting  tendency, he makes acquaintances easily  and is bland of speech. Since arriving  in Coquille City he has always been well  dressed and has .exerted himself to be  on affable terms with his acquaintances.  People in Coquille are trying to recall  all the strangers with whom Landis has  driven into the woods and whom he has  not brought back.  One was a man named Thompson,  from Minnesota, who one day left his  baggage at a hotel, saying that he was  going with Landis into the country to  look at somo land with a view to settling  in that vicinity. He never returned to  claim his property. Landis, coming back  to town, next day alone, said that  Thompson had decided not to purchase  and had gone on up the coast by  steamer.  After the disappearance of Landis, the  baggage left by Thompson was searched.  A letter was found from one Ole Larsen of North Bend. The officers immediately communicated with Larsen. His  reply was that he had received a letter  from his friend stating that he was  going to Portland on the steamer Alliance and thence to Gray's Harbor. This  letter he forwarded to the police. Then  an important discovery was made. The  letter was in Landis' handwriting on paper customarily used by him and, furthermore, it bore a date subsequent to  the disappearance of Thompson. The  steamer people were questioned. No one  answering the description of the missing man had taken passage on the Alliance.  It is also recalled that a man from  from Portland went last spring with  Landis to locate some, land in the timber  regions; that he was known to have a  large roll of greenbacks upon his person; that Landis, returning alone next  day, remarked that his customer "would  not pay the price asked" and that "the  deal was all off." In the light of recent sensational events���the murder of"  Eudaily, the finding of his body and  tho disappearance of the real estate  agent, it might Teem a little odd that*  no one during all these months has remarked upon.the coincidences connected with the trips taken by Landis; but  it must be remembered that it was no  uncommon thing for strangers to make  Nations Tall.  As the world stands today the fall of  nations is through internal decay and  disintegration, father .than' from the  invasion of armed enemies. The mightiest empires of the past, whose legions  once ruled- a good part of the world,'  are falling into bankruptcy, and must  inevitably end their existence as independent countries.. China-is the most  important nation oh the chess-board  today, and her enemies have been eager  to claim indemnity on slight occasions.  From 1874 to" the beginning of the Japanese war she has negotiated six loans,  aggregating about* $45,000,000, and to  pay the war indemnity to Japan of  ?1(>0,000,000. (and $24,000,000 for the return of I.iao-Tung peninsula) she had  to raise more money among the European nations. Russian and French capitalists showed their ready disposition  to loan'." her money, taking as security  whole provinces and ports. In 1897-  93, China had to go into the monev  markets of the world and negotiate  another loan of $80,000,000. The loan  was raised by Great Britain, and the  other powers have ever since used this  as a pretext for grabbing more land to  counterbalance., the .British power in-the  Orient. Every little outbreak is a fresh  cause for bleeding China, an6 so the  partitioning of the empire has gone  on apace. Immense as the country is,  it will not be a matter of a decade before the greater part of the dominion  will  be in pawn.  The absorption of Persia by Russia  and Great Britain is another concrete  illustration of the new method of invasion of one country by a more powerful  empire. Persia is practically a bankrupt nation today, and is owned part  and parcel by Russia and Great Britain.  She has raised loans time and again  from the two powers, and today mortgages cover her railroads and chief industries. The end of her resources may  not yet be in sight, but she has practically delivered over half her empire to  Russia and the other half to England.  The result is that Russia can not make  a move in the game of politics without  consulting her owners, and if she attempted it one or the other would block  =the'iriove.  I.  C. P. R.

Although a rich and fertile  country, Portugal has not "been able to  support herself, and she has mortgaged  : her industries to foreign governments  until she is nearly as much in pawn as  Persia.  Turkey is the problem of Europe,  and at the samo time the most puzzling  of nations in pawn. The whole continent of Europe holds her pledges and  securities, but it is a much more difficult matter to redeem these thair in  the case of China, for instance. When  the country first went bankrupt years  ago, it raised over $200,000,000 in Europe and pledged territory as security.  Then Turkey offered to pledge her tobacco, opium and liquor duties, and succeeded in this way in raising some  $600,000,000. For the past decade Turkey has not been a favorite resort for  money investments, and now that she  has pledged most of her revenues, she  finds it a difficult task to raise further  funds. The European money lenders  find a more profitable field in the far  east for .putting out their capital with  some assurance of adequate returns.  .In South America the work of mortgaging and buying up nations proceeds  with as much expedition as in the  Orient, and a great many of the South  American republics are owned by money-lenders and capitalists. Argentine  owes over $300,000,000. Already her  wines, railroads and other natural re-  -sources are pledged, and it seems doubt-'  ful if anything valuable can be found  as security for the new loans. There is  not much attempt to pay the interest  on this debt, and the country is satisfied  if the creditors content, themselves with  seizing a few more square miles of territory to call the matter even. Bolivia owes a debt$of,...jo��er $150,000,000,  which she contractedj'iri the war with  Chili, and which she had to guarantee  by handing over to the control of her  enemy the best part of her seaboard.  Chili exacts payment of the interest on  this debt, and she stands ready to absorb her weaker neighbor upon confession of bankruptcy.  The worst part of this financial situation, in the weak nations mentioned,  is that there is little prospect of improvement. When China, Turkey, Persia and Bolivia have mortgaged all the  land and natural resources they have,  they must in-time cease to be nations,  except in name-only. That sad state of  affairs has already ben reached by somo  of them. Their financial disintegration  is more insidious in its growth than the  forces leading to moral or physical  downfall.  Barbed Wire Telephone  WICHITA, Kansas, August 22.���In Indian Territory, the home of the outlaws, a scheme has been put into successful operation which will result in  the complete undoing of this class of individuals.    It is  the use of the telephone���not  the   one   strung  on  poles,  but a new invention, the use of barbed-  wire fences as a conductor of messages.  The outlaws have been in the habit of  cutting all the wires which were in sight  and which they imagined to  be telephone   or  telegraph  wires.    This  was  done so that their movements could: not  be traced.    Not long ago the Officers'  Association: of   the   Indian   Territory  learned 0 that" certain' kinds  of barbed  -wire were good conductors of talk, so  they put'the cattlemen into their secret  . and a complete line^f barbed wire telephoning connections  encircle the  outlaws' roosts.   When a band of bad men  start off on a robbing trip the barbed  wire telephone, which runs underground  "from  the   pasture  fence  near  a  small  town in the woods, to the small express  office or general store, is put into use.  Several  important ..captures- have  been  made recently., by means of this new  scheme.. The outlaws.arc at a loss to  know how their movements get around  so quickly when they are sure all the  telephone  wires__have -. been  cut., before  their departure.   They clo not kndw the  wire fence along which  they may be  riding is carrying their plans.  Czar Would Mediate.

Tlie train was being  backed into the union depot at the rate  of about 10 miles an hour, and when  about opposite to the sampling works  a refrigerator car jumped the track, taking a stock car loaded with sheep for  P. Burns & Company with it. The trucks  were knocked out from under the refrigerator car and the track badly torn  up for some distance. It took a large  crew of men several hours to clear the  track.  The will of Archibald Logan was  proven before judge Forin yesterday and  probate granted to Lillian May Logan,  a sister of the deceased who resides in  England. Logan was formerly a resident of Slocan and volunteered for service in,South Africa with the Strathcona  Horse, being killed in action. The usual  difficulty in proving death jn such cases  was averted by reason of the fact that  E. C. Wragge, who also saw service with  the Strathconas, was present when Logan was killed and made an affidavit  to this effect. The estate is valued at  $1000 and includes one lot in addition  A in this city.  A Theosophical lecture will be given  this evening at 8 o'clock at Miners'  Union hall by A. F.

It is believed in by  millions in the east and was firmly accepted by the early Christians, but  thrown out by the Romish church about  the third century. No other hypothesis  can account for a genius like, as an  illustration, Paloma, the girl pianist of  five, who can play Mozart's and Beethoven's most difficult classics than slie  is the reincarnation of song and the  great musician child who said his  mother was the best he ever had uttered  more wisdom tTian he has ever been  given credit for.  D<~*mes Authorship.  Yesterday The Tribune stated that tlie  Nelson correspondent of the New Denver Ledge was holding down a job in  Old-Age Pension System.  ,. In New Zealand there exists a rainbow of hope for those who are cast up  on the shore of time by the storms of  6a strenuous life. It is the old age pension system, which during its four years  of usefulness has reclaimed much flotsam and jetsam from the ceaseless tos-  sing of the social sea. The people who  have been instrumental in constructing  the fabric, of a country's greatness deserve kindly consideration from the  government if fortune's vicissitudes  would leave them Impoverished in the  winter of their years, but only in the  land of the long white cloud are old age  pensions provided out of the general  revenue for the victims of life's vagaries. , "    '.')';.  ;.-.In-.1892 some philanthropists launched  an  agitation in  favor    of substituting  public relief for private generosity in  the maintenance of .the elderly poor, It  was taken up by the Progressive Liberal Association: and passed on to the  electors,    who aroused so much attention to the scheme that a measure embodying it was introduced in parliament  during the-session :of 1897.   The fundamental principles of the act rested on  the assumption that    the    respectable  poor  should   not  bo  dependent    upon  charity, or treated as objects of commiseration by existing administrations, but  given a fair share of the national wealth  which they had; helped to create. Before the bill became law its opponents  did  their  best  to  defeat  it.   The  land  owners scented increased taxation and  put up a vigorous.opposition. They attempted to switch it into a compulsory  insurance  fund  with   regular  premium  rates   and,   failing  in   this,   demanded  a universal pension, which, as they argued, would preclude any suggestion'of  pauperism in the recipient.   The Trades  and Labor Conference fought for a contributory clause in the enactment and  the   Conservatives   not   only   stamped  the whole measure as impracticable, but  prophesied   that  ito would  attract    the  mendicant class.     Counter   arguments  were well made by a supporter of the  innovation, who said:     "Our    pioneers  have contributed vast sums of money to  the colony's revenues and they are entitled  to a reasonable income from  it  without any additional payments. It is  ^ight^jthat^-Cleseiiving^persons^who^have  spent   the- best   days   of   their   life   in  building up the commonwealth and have  failed to provide a personal competence  should receive annuities in their old age.  Premier Seddon-sauelched all objections  to the idea of levying a general pension  tax w.hen he declared that as relief had  been voted  to the  sufferers from the  snow  storms  In  the  North   Otega and  Canterbury districts, it was only proper  that aid should be given to those whom  disaster had overtaken iu another way  and  who  had  fallen  in  the  industrial  struggle.    If the state had a right to  aid the storm victims it also possessed  power to provide for the aged.  Workingmen put forth every effort to  have the bill passed, for it meant much  to them.   A man who receives from four  to six shillings per day does very well  if he supports his family in common decency.   It is absurd to think that he can  lay aside enough to live on in old age.  Keeping five or six mouths filled and an  equal  number of bodies clothed  is no  easy task when the income is limited.  In Canada, the poor, worn-out wage  earner and his wife go to some charitable institution, become beggars or resort to crime, and the children shift for  themselves,  but in  New. Zealand    the  old-age pension keeps    the house   together  and  preserves the  integrity of  the family.   This unique act provides for  the payment of a minimum annuity of  ?90 to persons over 65 years of age who  have resided in the colony for 25 years  and committed no serious offences during that time.    It insists that the last  five  years  shall  have  been  free  from  idleness and drunkenness, and the previous 12 devoid of misdemeanors. One  must not be poverty stricken in order  to secure a pension.   Men or women who  receive less than $260 a year from all  sources, or with estates of smaller value  than $1,350 are entitled to a government  allowance sufficient to  bring their annual income up to $260. but in no case is  ti'i official grant allowed to exceed $90.  All payments are made monthly through  the   various   post  offices.    Applications  for  pensions  have  to  be  renewed   every year and  it is said that this fact  keeps many sensitive and deserving people from securing financial aid they require.     Drunkenness   and   dishonorable  acts render the government allowances  forfeitable, but in the case of a married  man it is possible to transfer them to  the wife for a time,  Hamilton Lewis, who,, has for many  years kept Nordstrom from the gallows,  has announced his withdrawal from the  case-. All hope of appeal has vanished.  Governor Rogers has announced that he  will not interfere. Nordstrom himself  has finally broken down and he has  more than once during the past two  days shed tears. .Mr. Lewis left the case  yesterday.

The case has been carried three  times to the supreme court of the  United States and in each instance this  tribunal has refused to interfere.  * -a  p.  n  BRANDY  j?
