ESTABLISHED   1892  h Z&- Ji'-  -���V". o~  ���S.-3-;  -*-   SI  THURSDAY  MORNING,-   AUGUST  22,   1901  DAILY  EDITION  ' it  BRITISH   COLUMBIA  NEWS  BELL   MINE   AT   SUMMIT   CAMP  SUSPENDS OPERATIONS.  Forest Fires Continue Destructive at  Several Points���Provincial News  Notes of Interest!  GREENWOOD, Aug. 21.���[Special to  The Tribune.]���The R. Bell mine In  Summit camp, closed down yesterday,  after having been worked for more than  a year. Reason of suspension of work  has not been made public. Its operations were not on a large scale, but during the last two or three "months, about  five hundred tons of ore of excellent  grade were sent to the Granby smelter  li at Grand Forks. John Hanly, who lias  been in charge and is one of the owners,  will leave the district shortly on a trip  to Salt Lake City, where others interested in the property reside.  �� A thunder storm accompanied by a  ���welcome rain was experienced throughout the Kettle river valley last night.  Light rain fell away from the valley,  hut fields and garden crops along the  valley were much refreshed; by the  soaking shower.  ��� Forest lires in this neighborhood  seem to-have pretty well burnt themselves out. Buildings at the B. C. mine  had a narrow escape, outbuildings or  the boarding house having been destroyed and with them two largo sows  which were too heavy to move when  the fire got hold of the sheds. Much  timber suitable for mine purposes has  been burned. Lequime & Poor, owners of the'Midway sawmill, have agreed  -to supply to the Toronto- company  which lately started to construct the  railway between Republic and Grand  Forks sawed lumber required for bridges, culverts and somo ties. The same  mill owners have arranged with tho  .assignee in Ernest Spraggett's estate to  take over tliat sawmill man's umbo.'*  ���limits. Both ol' these transactions have  been aranged and only await execution  of necessary documents to ��� complete  them. The Yale Columbia Lumber  Company yesterday completed distribution of the poles along the Keltlo River  power company's right of way oh tho  section between Coryell's ranch near  Grand Forks and Phoenix. Erection ol  Lransniission lines will not, however, be  commenced just yet. Meanwhile poles  will be spread along the remainder of  the route extending from Coryell's to  Cascade City.  Yjnir Gossip.  YMIR, Aug. 21.���[Special to The  Tribune.]���William' Claffe, one of the  owners of the Melrose, adjoining Lhe  Mastodon claim which was sold about  two months ago to an eastern syndicate, was in Ymir yesterday. The Melrose is situated about eight and one-  half miles southeast of Salmo, and is  under bond to the same syndicate.  William Stewart, shift boss at the  Ymir, has moved his wife and family  here from Nelson. They went up the  hill yesterday. James Buchanan's (boss  carpenter at the mill) wife and family  arived here yesterday and will live in  the burg.  ^ And VjiI^avender_has_rettirned,_to cami),=  after taking in the sights of several  eastern cities, and being taken in at the  Buffalo  fall  show. -    '  -Engineer Bolander at the Ymir miue  jumped his job and left Tuesday l'or the  "Web-foot" state to reside permanently  on his prune farm. *���  Ed Cole was in from the Spotted  Horse, near the Porto Rico group, Sunday and returned Monday with 100  sacks." A trial shipment of ore is to be  sent from the property to the smelter,  and if good results are received regular  shipments will be made.  Tho mill at the Second Relief, Eric,  will commence operations some time  next week. A crew of miners have beer,  put to work underground.  Harry Ashcroft passed through Ymir  last Sunday, per freight, en route to  Nelson, with some 1,000 speckled beauties, so he said.- A man who would rob  a stream of as many fish just for sport  would strike his mother-in-law because  she was cross-eyed and had a wart on  her nose. We doubt whether Harry  caught-as many fish as the first figure.  The Ymirites who took in Sell's circus have returned home, some walking,  and all say it was well named���a sell.  Chief Lillie of the Nelson lire department was in the camp yesterday looking for a mate for the lonesome flic  horse. He inspected Ed Lind's bunch.  If you can't get what,you want in Nelson, come to Ymir.  There was a, happy go lucky reunion  of four old-timers last Sunday. They  were Phil White, superintendent of the  Wilcox; Bill Claffe of the Melrose mine,  Salmo; Tom Flinn,:an old,time prospector; and Joe Burgoine, Erie's chef. Mr.  Burgoine, whose family resides here,  invited the hoys up to his residence,  where they were dined and wined in  French style. The four have been in  the camp for the past seven or eight  years.  The sawmill at the Ymir mine is already to commence cutting lumber, and  soon we will'see the frame work of the  new cyinade plant building.  Rossland Locals  ROSSLAND, August 21.���[Special  to The Tribune.]���The Spitzee company  today received a check from the Trail  smelter for $452 for the last car of ore  sent down. This represents the net  proceeds for about 23 tons, less the cost  of mining. Although only down to the  hundred-foot level 13 carloads have  been shipped this season. The mine is  in the heart of the city and is really  making a very good showing.  Down at Northport two carloads of  matte were got ready for shipment to  the New Jersey refinery last Monday.  This is the first shipment attempted  since May 2C. On assaying the matte,  however, it was found that the gold values had disappeared and the sipment.  has not been sent out as arranged for.  The management decline to make any  statement in the matter, it is said,  but the union men regard the occurrence very hopefully and naturally  look upon the incident as one of the  many bad results of employing green  hands at the Northport smelter.  < -Arthur Marsh, whose serious illness  has been reported, was not so well this  afternoon, but is resting easily tonight.  The city engineer has advised the  council that there is likely to be. a  scarcity of water if the dry season continues and orders have been issued to  stop sprinkling for the present and to  prevent the waste of city water in every  possible way.  Superintendent -Radish has only attempted to run two of the smelter furnaces at Northport and No. 2 furnace  went ou the retired list for some time  to come at 9 a. m. yesterday, the connection with the main stack haying  blown out at that time on account of  the furnacernan allowing too great an  accumulation of gas at that point.  Revelstoke Notes.  REVELSTOKE, August 21.���[Special  to The Tribune.]���Charles King, chairman of the North Bend division of the  Trackmen's Union, went through here  this morning to Montreal to take the  place of McTaggart as representative  of the bridge men. He was on the train  iu the Hope accident. He states he  and two interviewers saw track watchmen asleep in their shack after the  wreck occurred.  The request for an extension of Lime  on the Eva bond is looked upon here as  a game of freeze-out. The London &  B. C. Goldfields are putting a tramway  in  the  mine.  It is stated here that S. S. Taylor of  Nelson will be retained to oppose the  city deal with the water and light company for their plant.  ,   From Vancouver,  VANCOUVER, August 21.���[Special  Lo The Tribune.]���A Montreal special  dispatch says the last of the conciliation committee on the trackmen's  strike have left Montreal and it is likely  the strike will drag along some time.  E. S. Clouston, general manager of  the Bank of Montreal, passed through  to Victoria this afternoon.  Steamer Coquitlam arrived this morning from Rivers inlet with news that  ��� canneries havo closed down with about  half "their packs.  EASTERN CANADIAN NEWS  Wired in Brief.

QUEBEC, August 21.���Telegraphic  communication is now established with  the straits of Belle Isle, the importance  of which is demonstrated by the fact  that word was received from there this  morning that many icebergs were visible, which serves as a warning to  ship owners whose vessels use- the  straits.

An offer of $100 a  side is made for the match here, gate  receipts going 75 per cent to winner  and 25 per cent to loser. McEarchen  says he is willing to meet Champion  oither in Montreal or Toronto If satisfactory arrangements can be made.  MONTREAL, August 21.���Joseph A.  Levcsque, who, in 1891, forged checks  to the amount of $15,000 while, an employee of the Montreal City and District Savings bank, appeared before  magistrate Lafontaine today, but owing  to 'the prosecution having lost their  proofs the accused was remanded for  eight days. Levesque was discovered a  few weeks ago working as a waiter in  New York, although the detectives for  the past ten years have been waiting  for  a clue to  his 'whereabouts.  Accidentally Shot.  SAN FRANCISCO, August 21.���While  Thomas Galvin and G. M. Duncan, special officers attached to the Curtin detective agency, were examining the former's revolver last evening it fell to the  floor and was discharged, the bullet entering Galvin's abdomen and inflicting  a wound from which he died in a few  hours.

A Silly Rumor That the Steel Corporation Intend to Remove Their  Plants to Europe.  PITTSBURG, August 21.���The steel  strike situation underwent no "change  today. There was no extension of the  strike and the steel managers did' not  ���attempt to start more mills. LaLe in  the day the fires were lighted in the  De Mulertin plate works at McKeesport hut the machinery was not started  and no attempt was made to operate it.  It is believed, however, that the move is  preliminary to a start with non-union  men. The managers of the company  have been preparing'for several days  to reopen a number of their properties  an it is thought they have decide'd to  act at once. Tlieir Monneson plant is  moving ahead uninterruptedly with full  crews and their Crescent works at-  Cleveland has about half the machinery  in operation. There has been no break  in the Carnegie group and the mills  that have been started with non-union  men since the strike are going ahead  with about the- same force of men.  The leaders on either side were busy all  day, but at nightfall both said there  was no announcement to make. On the  streets it was a day of exciting rumors,  beginning with a circumstantial story  of a plot to destroy the Monongahela  tin plate works and ending with a tale  of the removal of the large plants of the  United States Steel Corporation tp_  England. Between the two, 'rumors  again settled the strike in several ways.  At headquarters a cold denial was given  to all the interesting stories. It was another day of peace in all the strike districts although the general probability  of trouble still holds .good at places  .where feeling runs high.  - NEW YORK, August 21.���It was denied at the office of the United States  Steel Corporation today that Samuel  Gompers was to have a conference with  J. Pierpont Morgan' looiring to the ending of the steel strike. An official of the  corporation said the situation was unchanged.  SAN FRANCTSCO, August 21.���The  executive committee _of the labor council last night issued .a statement addressed to the farmers' of California,  presenting the labor troubles in this  city and defending the cause of- the  locked out men and strikers. The address places the blame for the transportation troubles, preventing the farmers  from moving their products, on the employers' association, which has forced  the issue by denying recognition to the  unions and has refused to treat for  speedy settlement of the troubles. Another attempt at conciliation has failed,  the City Front Federation having refused to modify, at the solicitation Of  the committee of 100 of the Federation  of Improved Clubs, its last draft of  terms of peace. A number of nonunion men were sent to Port Costa today to assist in discharging ships. A  number of non-union men today applied for and were given work at the  Union Iron Works. There were several  -f.lashPiB���yesterday���between_uni_on__and_  non-union men, but none were serious.  Kitchener Talks on the War.  LONDON, August 21.���In a dispatch  dated August 8th, and dealing with the  condition of affairs at the front at that  time, lord Kitchener says: "There are  no more than 13,500 Boers now under  arms. Although they are not able  longer to undertake extensive operations  their apparently inexhaustible supplies  of food enable them to maintain an  obstinate resistance " without retaining  anything or defending the smallest portion of this vast country. This wearing  down process is necessarily slow, rendering the employment of a large number of troops still necessary. Great patience is still required to see the inevitable end of an insensate resistance which,  while it cannot affect the result, has become unjustifiable in prolonging the war  and the sufferings of women and children." Since this dispatch was written  the losses of the Boers have brought  their forces down to about 11,000.  Old Plates a*cd Old Notes  NEW YORK, August 21.���Government  secret service officers last night visited  New Brunswick, N. J., and obtained possession of the plates and nearly $100,000  face value notes of the old Bank of New  Brunswick. The notes were not reprinted from the old plates. They were  genuine printed 30 years or more ago  by the bank itself, but were never signed by the president and cashier. Lax  methods in winding up the affairs of  the bank 26 years ago seeem to have  been responsible for tan alleged big  swindle in other states with the bank  notes as a basis. The bank went into  liquidation some years ago. Colonel  John A. Newell was at that time appointed receiver and wound up the-af-  fairs of the institution. He has since  died. In the course of his operations  he sold the old note plate to Adam Lud-  wig, a junk dealer of New Brunswick.  The sale was as old metal. The junk  dealer also bought the waste paper and  all the junk out of the bank. In the  waste paper he found about a half million dollars' worth of notes. These were  in the original sheets and uncut and un  signed. These notes he sold or gave to  Jacob Weigel, who is a collector of coins  and old notes. He kept them some years  and then began to dispose of them to  coin dealers. ��� Among others he sol  some to Greenberg & Smith of San Francisco. This firm, Mr. Weigel" says, af-  terwaj/s sent him large orders for the  notes, and in all purchased some $185,-  000 worth, counting their face' value.  The plates remained in the possession of  the junk dealer. Last night secret service agents saw Mr. Weigel. .They were  satisfied with his explanation and he  gave them what he had remaining of  the notes except those he kept for his  collection. He was not arrested. Lud-  wig, the junk man, turned over the  plates. They had never been used since  the bank last run off a lot of the bills.  Slaps Mrs Nation's Face.  WATERTOWN, N." Y., August 1.���Mrs.  Carrie Nation added to her experience  recently, when her face was slapped by  a man who resented her grabbing for a  cigar he was smoking. She5.was.taking'  a trip on one of the St. Lawrence river  boats and. was" giving the passengers  a tirade against the use ofLtobacco. She  was taking cigars and cigarettes from  the pssengers and made*an attempt to  snatch a_cigar fr.om the mouth bf Eugene Foley, a traveling man from Utica.  Foley slapped her in the face and she  Immediately terminated her crusade  against tobacco. Foley afterwards apologized for striking her.; Mrs. Nation  spoke at Glen-'parkin thef afternoon and  evening before two small" audiences. She  did not speak over five minutes in the!  afternoon and was gree'ted by hisses  ��� when she "finished. The I lectures were  given, under the- local -management of  "Dell" Slocum, proprietor of one of the  most notorious saloons in- the city.

The figures  show that the rural district's bf Ontario  and the Maritime provinces are decreasing and the city districts increasing in  population. British Columbia and the  Northwest Territories are not given:  A General Invitation.  WASHINGTON,-- August 21.���The  state department has issued a procla-'  mation signed by president McKinley  inviting the nations of the world to  "participate in the Louisiana Purchase  Exposition to be held at St. Louis in  1903. The proclamation says: "I do  hereby "invite all the nations of the earth  to'take^part in the commemoration of  the purchase of Louisiana territory, an  event of great interest to the United,  States and of abiding effect on 'its development, by appointing represent^-,  tives and sending exhibits to the"Lou-  isitina Purchase Exposition as will most  fitly and fully illustrate their resources, the industries and the progress in  civilization."  * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *  * *  * ONLY A QUESTION OF TIME.      *  *  *  NEW YORK, August 20.���It  -has all along been * evident that  the Hill-Morgan scheme to secure harmony, of operation in the  Northwest would be a failure unless 'the Canadian Pacific were  taken care of in some way. The  syndicate has evidently decided  on some plan for taking care of  the Canadian Pacific and it has  fortified itself by buying enough  Canadian Pacific stock or by having enough of the stock in the  hands of friendly interests to secure influence on Canadian Pacific policy. This accounts for the  recent movement in the stock.  Wall street has taken considerable stock and a good, deal has  been absorbed in the'West and  also abroad by those oh the inside or familiar with.the situation. It is expected that Canadian Pacific will hereafter pay  some attention to. the desires and  best ��� interests of its- American  ,cnmpetitnrs. ���-  *  ���I* *I* ���?* *l* �����* �������� *J* *5* "I* *I* ���!��� *J* *%* *t* "J* ���!* *I* *!"

The liner may be delayed on acount of the fog, but if slie  is on time it is probable that Lhe challenger will get away from her anchorage today. The steam yacht Priscilla  with a number of prominent New York  yachtsmen on board will also meet the  Teutonic. It is proposed to give the  Irish baronet a royal welcome. The  plan is, if possible, to take Sir Thomas  and his friends from the liner at quarantine. Should the Teutonic not arrive until night, it is proposed to emphasize the welcome with a pyrotechnic  display, for which a carte blanche order has been given. Sir Thomas Lipton will be the guest of the Seawan-  haka-Corinthian Yacht Club on Saturday and will witness the races at Oyster  Bay.

JACKSON, 111., August 21.���In a head-  on collision between the Chicago & Alton westbound "hummer" and a freight  train at Prentice today five men were  killed and six badly injured. None of  the passengers were injured. The freight  train was on a siding waiting for the  (Iyer. It is supposed the train gradually  worked out over the switch unobserved  by the crew and when the passenger  came along at ii high rate of speed the  impact was  terrific.  Botha is reported hemmed In, which  is another way of saying that the Boers  are once again almost sewed up.  CONSTANTINOPLE, Aug. 21.���Th^  French ambassador, M. Constans, noti- ,  fied the sultan's first secretary that all  diplomatic relations between France  and Turkey are broken off, and that the  ambassador has informed his government to this effect. M. Constans communicated direct with the sultan, because the latest negotiations were transacted with the sultan personally. Tho-  ambassador justified bisection on the  ground that the sultan broke his direct  personal promise given to M. Constans  at an audience in the Yildiz palace  Thursday, regarding the purchase of the  quay claini and the settlement of the  disputed French claims. The foreign  minister also garve formal notice that  the agreement would be carried out; so  in view of this double breach of faith,  M. Constans holds that it is impossible for France to continue diplomatic  relations with Turkey. It was announ-^  ced in a dispatch from Constantinople  Sunday that tho sultan had agreed to  raise a loan of 40,000,000 francs with  which to purchase the quays at Constantinople constructed by a French  compauy, on the understanding that,  eventually, they would be taken up by  the Turkish government. The French  ambassador at Constantinople has been  pressing the claims of the French'com-*  pany for some time past and threatened  to break off diplomatic relations witli  Turkey unless the sultan promises redress by noon August 19.  PARIS, Aug. 21.���rNight Report.]��� "  A high official of the foreign office today  informed the correspondent of the Associated Press that the exact situation-,  at Constantinople is as follows: Tho  sultan at the last audience which ho  granted to M. Constans, the French ambassador, agreed to send the latter the  same or the following day a document  giving complete satisfaction to France  rogardhig the claims of French citizens ih the matter of the quays in accordance with the terms arranged between the sultan and M. Constans vor-  bally. Insrcad of doing this, tho sultan waited until yesterday when he,s  sent M. Constans a document in which  the terms differed csentially from those  arranged at the audience. Thereupon M.  Constans declined to negotiate any-  further or to hold other communications with the porte and referred the  matter to tho French foreign oflice. His  dispatch to that effect arrived late last  night. As the matter stands relations  between M. Constans and the porte are  broken off, but France and Turkey are  still in diplomatic relations through the  Turkish ambassador at Paris.  If the sultan does not keep the promises whicli he made at tho last audieiu**'.  continued the informant of the correspondent of the Associated Press, we  will have to recall M. Constans and  send the ambassador his passports. A  solution ono way or the other is probable within the next two days. Reply- -  jug=to_n_niiestion, the forei**;n office offi-  cial said: "No naval action on the  part of Franco has yet boen decided upon. The --terries in the paners to the  effect that the French warships are uuder orders to be in readiness to proceed to the Bosiihorus have no foundation in fact. Such a measure might  of course become necessary, but that  eventuality has not yet been considered by the French governmnt." *  Firo Ptill Rages.  PHILADELPHIA, August 21.���The  big oil fire at the Atlantic Refining  Company's works at Point Breeze is  burning more fiercely today than at any  timo since the explosion occurred.  Shortly before six o'clock this morning  another lank exploded and the firemen  have given up all hope of saving any  of the propei ty. The wind is blowing  the (lames in the direction of the gasoline and naptha tanks and fears arr  entertained that the gasoline tank will  explode. The oil ran into the sewer  which empties into the Schuylkill river  this morning and the fire officials say  the sewer is a raging furnace and that  the flames will probably soon find their  way into the river surface. All police  boats that were throwing water on the  (lames left this morning, so that they  would not be caught by the burning oil  when  it  flows  into  the  river.

It concludes with a  letter from acting secretary Hackett to  admiral Schley stating that "The department having constituted the court  should not at this stage of the proceedings undertake to hear and determine  questions that may arise respecting the  competency of the members of the court  Such a proceeding would be irregular,  all questions of the nature being left  to the court itself." This is a declination  of the request made by admiral Schley's  counsel that the attention of admiral  Howison be called by the department to  an alleged interview in which he said  the credit for the victory of Santiago belonged   to  admiral   Sampson. 1  *!

Thirty years is a large space in the  'life of Toronto, and Dr. Goldwin Smith  is now associated by long residence  with the later stages m the life of the  great city which has grown- up around  him. ' Toronto has been advertised as  the home of one of the few, great modern writers "whose fame is universal.  The city has profited by its relationship  to Dr. Goldwin Smith, and in a"~flner  sense his high sense of public duty, his  unfailing kindness of heart, have  touched the lives of his fellow citizens.  The seventy-eighth birthday of Gold-'  win Smith afforded opportunity this  weok for the renewal of good wishes  to Toronto's greatest .citizen. The  passing years have not dimmed the brilliance of Goldwin Smith's genius, and it  is pleasant to know that his bodily  strength permitted him to journey to  Gueiph and' enrich the ceremonies at  the foundations of the new Massey Hall  at the Agricultural.College with one of  his own matchless speeches.���Toronto  Telegram.

Answer-  In answer to your question I am glad  to have the opportunity to testify to  the good-feeling that amounted to generosity on the part of the union in a  body four years after the union was  established. The condition of the coal  market called for a revision of the  scale;of wages paid to the men, and, on  the matter being explained, first to the  union oflicers, and afterwards to the  whole,of the .company's employees,..assembled to hear,my explanation, the  union, in a body, without, a single dissenting voice, accepted a reduction in  wages to take immediate effect of 20  per cent, which at that time Avas equivalent to making the company a present of $20,000 a month. This reduction  was.adhered to only for-a short'period,  but a 10 per cent reduction continued  for nearly-four years. We restored the  |- 10 per cent not quite four years ago.  HELJP^ WANTED.

The alarm was laughed at by some and  taken in earnest by others. The president of the Canadian Pacific said it was  possible for Hill and Morgan and their  associates to obtain control of the road,  but hardly probable. What was  thought only ��� possible is now probable, for dispatches from New York say  that the Hill-Moragan crowd must have  the Canadian Pacific in order to maintain harmony of operation in the  Northwest. What will now become of  the competitive independent railway  shouters in this province? Men who  dropped the government ownership o�� '  A Valuable Experience  The following is an extract from the  evidence given by Samuel Robins ��� of  Nanaimo, manager of the Vancouver  Coal Company, before the royal com-'  mission, and was furnished the Toronto  Glqbe by R/C. Clute, chairman of the  commission. It is interesting, as the  experience of a mine manager :  Question���-What is the effect of unions .upon the men?     Answer���The influence  is   certainly  good.     If  for   no  other   reason   than   it L gives   the  mail  a feeling of self-respect that he does  not possess where he considers himself  to be at the mercy of any irresponsible  or short-tempered boss.    For instance,  ^vher.ejher.e^is^no^union^any-'arbitrai-y-  treatment on the part of the. boss has  to be submitted to, there being practically no court of appeal," but with the  union a miner never ceases to realize  that  under   no  circumstances   can    lie  suffer arbitrary treatment.    In the one  case a man can be knocked out of r.Ue  mine, and must submit, even with starvation- staring him in the face; it may  be at the mere whim of the boss, but in  case of union  mines  if the boss loses  his temper, he thinks twice before allowing it to master him to the point of  committing an  injustice.    The general  influence of the union is to improve the  wages  of  the members  as well  as   to  raise their general status.   With regard  t othe question of hours of labor,    of  .whether work shall be done by the day  or by contract, these are, the questions  that at all times have to be discussed  fairly and frankly between the opposing interests, and so far as my experi ���  once goes, they can always be settled  on a basis fair and just to both sidos.  Question���For what period    of years  does your experience extend Over? Answer���I have been a close observer of labor matters for nearly thirty years, and  although   not   until   the   last.   sixteen  years brought into direct relation with  miners  and   other   laborers,   long previous to that as secretary of large collieries in England, I had special opportunities   of   studying   labor    questions,  and I may safely say that where differences between employee and employed  have   arisen,   and   no   satisfactory   arrangement   has   been   come     to,     and  strikes   have   resulted,   I   have    never  failed  to  be  able to  trace  the  cause  of.the failure to temper or the absence  of .reasonableness,   either   on   the   one  side or the other.    1 have in mind today a very bad strike in the' north ,of  England,   that  caused   a   stoppage    of  large   collieries   for   over   six   months,'  whicli   would   never  have taken  place  had   a  little  patience  and   forbearanc-3  been exercised on the part of the manager, and perhaps, I may add, a little  less vaunting of the principle of union  at  all   times and seasons,  that  caused  considorablo    amount   ���  of    irritation.  Questions in dispute that are comparatively Insignificant at the beginning aro  sometimes lost sight of during the heat  of  discusf ion,   and   attempted ��� coercion  on one side and resistance to unreasonable demands on the uuner.

When lie went on tour, Jenkins, the  -��� joint magistrate, took his wife into  camp "with him. Likewise his child.  The collector who was his chief didn't  quite like it. He said it. interfered with  the activity of Jenlcm's movements, and  he had .observed that Jenkins often halted for several days at places where there  was nothing special to investigate. He  failed, however, to notice that these  halts were usually within striking distance of productive snipe grounds, or  jungles that yielded deer or even more  coveted sam'**. Now Jenkins was a  sportsman as well as a Benedict, while  his morose superior owned neither a  wife nor a gun. But, en revanche, he  was very strong on the Code of Criminal Procedure, and had .aspirated r towards the high court. -He-would'have'  been   surprised   and   horrified   had   he  0 known how a wife in camp could help,  all unconsciously, to. turn aside the  current of the law, as it is the purpose  of this narrative to show. He was undoubtedly an able'-jman, this collector,  and conceived that the art of government lay iri the elaboration of rules and  . the judicious use of statistics/Such  men gain high advancement in quiet  times. "So lie exacted weeklyaud monthly returns of their work from his subordinates,' and ; he had taken Jenkins,  to task because the percentage of convictions out of the cases he had decided was S7.3, whereas the.district aver-  ago was only 79.2. v To- which Jenkins  ��� had politely:, replied that -he had hitli--  erto been guided, only by .the evidence  in his decisions, biit that-: henceforth he  would bear this hew instruction in mind.  when forming his opinion on the merits  of each case, and would be careful to  convict only that proportion of criminals which would indicate the highest  judicial, efficiency on his��� part. Which*,  ingenious fiction kept the collector silent  for several whole months.  But he lay low all the time, ready to  catch the joint tripping. For it musi  be admitted that Jenkins had a deplorable way of-putting justice before law,  which had endeared him to the simple  people,: who understood the one and  knew nothing about the other. .The col  lector's turn for transfer to a more attractive post was about.due, and it was  a question of time whether ho could  get his claws into Jenkins for.some.departure; from  prescribed  procedure" be-  ��� fore he moved up. .  Meanwhile he asserted his authorit?  by refusing, on soriie obvious pretext,  to let the Jenkinses have that spare ten!  which Mrs. Jenkins had found so convenient last season. This little meanness, however, didn't keep her in the  station when the pleasant cold weathsi  drew on, and the smoke began to. lie  in layers on the evening horizon, and  the tents were dragged out of the store  room,* and the guns locked up, and the  camels .hired, and Jenkins started oil  to make the round b�� his division, and  administer under the "village, tree the  nearest approach which he found con-  'Rifit.r*nt_with_the:codos,and_cjrcu_I_ars_U*.al  the collector loved and reverenced.  So it befell that the Jenkins camp  was pitched in a nice open grove, and  the joint one late afternoon was administering justice in a canvas court in ont  corner of it, while Mrs. Jenkins and  Evie, aged six, were lodged in their little tent some way back among the trees.  ��� "What's the next case?" said the presence rather crossly, for it was warm.  Indeed, the presence (whisper it not in  the high court) was in its shirtsleeves,  and had been compelled to give up a  ' chrished project of inspecting au adjacent lake whereon wild ducks descended in whizzing flights at sunset. Now  it looked doubtful if it would even get  time for its afternoon tea. These things  make even presences cross.  "Majesty," said the patient Munshi,  "it. is a case of kidnaping and personation." ���.'    ���  A groan from the presence. Kidnaping cases are apt to be tedious.  "My lord," suggested the crafty clerk,  "it can wait till tomorrow."      .  "No " said Jenkins decisively. That  would be hard on the witnesses who can  get no accommodation here. Besides,  it is now too late to get. to the ducks.  Produce the police papers and-let me  hear what it is about." :  The Munshi fished out a bundle of  hieroglyphics on flimsy yellow paper and  proceeded to intone the contents���swaying his body with the rhythm as. lie read.  The report set forth how a gang of  ingenious swindlers had for years carried on a thriving business in manufacturing brides for high-caste bridegrooms  who could not afford an expensive wedding It was a trade that would not  flourish in any other country where  people choose their own wives, or are  "hot married till they reach years of-discretion. But it did very well among  'Hindus, who are wedded any time after,  they are weaned. The Arm dealt ajmost  exclusively' in brides under 10 years,  and the younger the better. Some of  the little girls they ttole, and some  they bought cheap, and some they even  recruited from the families of their confederates. All of them were children of  low caste or no caste, or child-widows,  and therefore of no market value. The  gang included some Rajputs and Brah-  mans of good social standing, and it  was their function to ke^p the children  till they had forgotten their past or  jiad been trained to conceal it.   Then a  SAVINGS BANK DEPARTMENT:  Interest allowed on deposits.   I'i'osoiit rato  throe por cont.  GRANGE V. HOLT,  Manager Nolson Branch..  bargain was made with some necessitous  caste-fellow who wanted a cheap wife,  and was content to believe the plausible story under wliich her true origin  was concealed. So the scavenger's  daughter would become one of the, twice-  born castes, and a motner of priests or  warriors. ,.  At last a woman's jealousy had given  away the whole organization, and the  police had swooped on the gang and  produced them for trial, with a dozen  or so of the faked-up wives and swindled husbands to testify against them.  The witnesses were called and the sariie  miserable story was repeated to the  weary joint in half a dozen different aspects. Each, a sordid history of'greed  and cunning and folly���human beings  sold ���: and bought like sheep, and marriages that shamed the story of Eden. -  "I think that is enough," said Jenkins  at last. .'.-'.'.-���..'  "There is just one case more," said  the police inspector, who acted as public prosecutor; "it is a strong one,-but  the witnesses have not yet been, summoned. We are prosecuting the girl.  She shared" in . the fraud arid has confessed. Her statement and the man's  might be taken, if your honor pleases."  "Call Bulwunt Sing."  He came forward with slow step. A  Rajput of high caste, with all the. marks  of breeding in his tall figure arid his  "fine aquiline features, and of poverty  in his humble dress, his gaunt frame,  and trie deep lines in his kind and patient face. There was something pathetic in the air of grief and despondency that sat on the stooping shoulders  and: the bowed gray head. The story  was as sad as the man. He had been  left a, widower without a child. When  he was a younger'man his family had  urged him to marry another wife���for a  vsonlessrHindu lias.avblaek prospect in  cliis world: and the next. No son to  take over his burden of toil, to light liis  iiineral pyre, or.offer the annual sacri-  ilce.to his soul and deliver it from the  hell called.'.Put,'-'where the sonless must  abide. Even his wife had pressed him  ';o, bring a rival to the house. But he  had refused with loving" fidelity while  -he lived. He was an elderly man when  -he died, and alone in the world. Times  had gone hard with him,"and he could  not afford the "expense" that the ruinous  practice, of his race imposes on a for-  niar marriage. One of the gang, a distant connection of his family, had offered to find him'a wife���the daughter,  ;ie said, of people "of equal casto -with  ais own, but so impoverished that they  .vould accept a very slender dower. Sus-  -recting nothing, he went to the village  moneylender and; pledging his few regaining acres, raised the money that  was demanded.  The girl was indeed a Rajput of the  '���ightcaste, but, married in infancy, had  oeen left a widow while her husband  >vas still a little, child. The cruel custom of her class condemned her to a  life of enforced and despised widowhood  -^a drudge anda butt for the more for-  :unate mothers of children. She was  tutored in her new part, and cheerfully  accepted it, as she would have accepted  any alternative���even death in the village well. So Bulwunt Sing took her  to his home, a budding girl, and there  itf-tlie^comfor^and'proteetroirof^a^ldnd���  ly heart she forgot the bitter past. A  few years later the crown, of happiness  had come to both, for she bore to Bulwunt Sing the son for whom his heart  had yearned many a weary day. The'  Sirdar, too, made a canal through his  village,, and with its water his, fields  yielded so abundantly that he paid off  his most pressing debts and hung a  slender gold bangle on the arm of his  child's mother.  On this poor, happy little home a  thunderbolt had fallen. Two days before Bulwunt Sing had been ordered to  appear at the nearest police station with  his wife, and there he had learned the  whole bitter truth. He had been deceived even by her. Full well he knew  the consequences which must follow a  public exposure. He would be excluded  from his caste���a lingering social death,  and the boy, who was his pride and  hope, would share his fate. He had  begged the police officer to let the matter drop. He was ready to forgive the  wretched girl, whose happiness was now  bound up in his own, and to conceal his'  shame from his brotherhood and neighbors. If the matter came to court, concealment would be impossible���for her  a prison, and for him and his son an  outcast's miserable life. It was curious  that even at that bitter moment it never  occurred to him to blame the perverse  social laws which wrought such cruel  wrong to him and his. - He accepted  them as he accepted the pitiless heat  of the sun, or the flood that swept away  his crops���something he might try to  evade, but need not dream of altering.  Indeed, he would not alter them if he  could. Had his case been another's,  and had he sat in the caste council \:ith  his fellows' to judge it, his vote would  have gone with theirs to condemn the  innocent victims of a misfortune which  might have befallen any of them. Much  water will flow from the Ganges to the  sea before the slow-moving forces, that  reach even Orientals, have purified that  queer mixture of barbarity and benevolence that makes up the social code of  the Hindu.  All this Jenkins slowly and patiently  gathered from the unwilling witness.  "Anything more to say, Bulwunt  Sing?"  "Only this, sahib���I am an old man,  and tomorrow or today, what does it  matter?    I have done no wrong, but  HEAD  OFFICE. TORONTO.

She of the house is young,  and the women folk know nothing of  laws.   And there is the child���who will  tend him if his mother is taken away?  Send  us  across  the  black  water,   but  -send us together.    Incarnation of justice, that is all."  Then came the poor child-mother. The  same cloak of clean white cotton cloth  that, shrouded her covered the small  son that cowered in her arms under its.  thin shelter, in terror of the white man  and the crowd round about.him. Two  fat brown legs hung out and answered  with a kick to the convulsive clutch  with which the startled mother grasped  him when the sahib spoke. In a low  voice, - broken by tears, she told her  story of the wrongs she had suffered and  done.   No need to repeat it.  The inspector smiled with satisfaction  while she admitted her share in the deception���seeking in a blind way to take  all the blame *on. herself, lest any evil  might, through her, befall the other  two. No box of precious ointment was  hers to offer, but a sacrifice of tears  that might wash white a blacker sin  than her paltry transgression.  "The father of >'Zalim," she said���for  no Hindu wife must speak her husband's name while he lives���"is blameless���he knew nothing. They told me  what I should say, and theythreatened  to beat me, and I said it. I deceived  him, and he���-he was very good to me."  And here the voice faltered and broke  in a flood of tears, and little Zalini,  under the cloak, answered with a sympathetic wail.  "It will go to the sessions court," said  the inspector to himself, "and I shall  gain credit, for the judge-sahib will see  that the confession is true. These women are fools���she had only to deny,  and we had no good proof against her."  In all that crowd the pathos of the  story appealed to the listening Englishman alone. Unblinded by laws which,  to the others, had supplanted natural  feeling, he could see with clear vision  the balance of right and wrong. What  the woman had done seemed so little,  and what she had suffered seemed so  much, and before her still"a life of hopeless misery, with just enough happiness  in the past to reveal its wretchedness,  Beyond that, two innocent lives wrecked  and a home broken up forever. And  what was it all for? What'- sin- had  these people committed that offended  against the moral code? A man had, in  ignoranoj, -married a widow and violated a law of caste. A broken, timid  girl had allowed him to do it, and lent  herself to the deception. ,A child had  committed the offense of being born.  So all three must suffer in the interest of the man, who would be rained by  his vindication, and of the community,  whose own heartless law was at the  bottom of all the trouble.  Still, the law was clear, and Jenkins  was there to administer it. A fraud had  been committed, and the woman had  joined in it. The codes provide that  people who join in fraud are to be prosecuted and punished, and magistrates  are Uent to Dunish them.  "It is not our business," the collector  had more than once laid down with  severity, "to make or. defy the law. How  many of us are wiser than it?"  So to prison the poor little nuDther  =must~goTalfd^=wof^e~degfada^^^  fall   on  her  child  and  its   father,   the  innocent  victims o��c, Western law  and  Eastern justice.  "It is a beastly shame." said Jenkins  inwardly; but I don't see how it can be  helped. The collector is after me, and  he is sure to hear of it. Some of his  toadies will let him know. But it goes  against the grain.. I wish he had the job  himself."  While he pondered, silence lay on the.  court, and a woman s sobs and a child';  wail came from the mango shade where  the prisoners sat.  Jeevan Sing, the orderly, took advantage of this pause in the proceedings  to deliver a message.  "The mem-sahib sends word that tea  is ready in the outer tent."  "I'll be back in a few minutes," said  the harassed joint. "Let the people go  and have a drink at the well." And he  went off with his. heart rather full; for  this young man had his weak points.  As he moved slowly across under the  trees from his office tent, two ruddy little legs rushed to meet him, and two little white arrns*were extended, and a  rosy little mouth said, "Daddy! Daddy!  take me up and carry me in to tea oh  your shoulder." And a smiling face  looked out,a welcome for him from beneath the uplifted screen that served as  a dobr to the dwelling tent.  With a sudden resolution he put down  the child with a kiss. ."  "Run in, Evie; tell mother I have  something which must be done. I cannot come to you and her till it is done."  As he turned on his heel and strode  back he muttered between his teeth,  "By Heaven! I'll do such justice as  these people understand, if- I do it for  the last time."  He took Bulwunt aside beyond ear-,  shot of the others. ,  "Bulwunt Sing, I, too, am a husband  and a father, as you are. Look me in  the face and speaR as one man to another who wishes him well. Havo the  people of your village heard this thing?"  "No, sahib; none knows it.   The messenger came at dawn and said we v.  wanted.   He was a rustic and knew not  wherefore."  "Then take a friend's counsel. See  that none ever knows. I will release  you and yours, and I will send you back  to tell them what story you please to  explain your absence.

"Incarnation of justice," said the Rajput, with a low reverence, "it is tho  word of a wise ruler. I will do as the  protector of the poor has ordered. May  the English Raj endure forever!"  A few tears trickled silently down the  furrowed cheeks as he walked quietly  away towards the mango tree, and Jenkins, who knew their ways, knew well  that the heart was full of gratitude,  though no.word of it was spoken. He  knew, too/that if there again was trouble in the land," there was one man  more who would lay down his life for  the white rulers. v  .The inspector accepted it as one of  "the inexplicable eccentricities of these  sahibs whon Jenkins took his seat again  and said that the case against Bulwunt  Sing's wife had failed, and she should  be forthwith discharged and made over  to her husband. Jenkins forgot all  about his tea. He lighted'a cheroot and  went on with the business -of the court  till darkness put a stop to work. Before the sun set he saw a man with  head erect and firm step striding olf  in the distance down the white road.  He had a child in his arms and a woman walked behind him.  That evening his wife said:  "Why didn't you come over to tea,  dear? Evie was so disappointed,when  you turned back. Then such a queer  thing happened. A tall old man and a  girl with a baby came and waited outside our-tent, and when wo came out  they asked leavc���to .touch my feet and  Evie's, and they made the little baby  do the same, and then they all went  away and didn't ask for anything."  At that moment the orderly again interposed.  "My lord, the coolie Has come with  the vegetables from the station, and he  has brought, this letter also." He handed' a large official envelope to the joint.  ' Jenkins opened it and cried with a  shout that distinctly lowered him in  the 'opinion of the impassive Jeevan  Sine."

C. F.

Yesterday the counsel for the accused intimated that his client was prepared to pay  the amount of the license if the case  against him was dropped and P. .IS.  Wilson, who appeared for the city, recommended the settlement of the matter upon the terms suggested by Mr.  Macdonald. This left justices Fletcher  and Strachan, who were on the bench,  nothing else to do and the matter ac-  cordingy dropped upon the undertaking  of the accused to-pay uie ?50 license.

Since  the last meeting the secretary has received an intimation from S. J. McLean,  the Dominion commissioner on railway  rates, to the eifect that lie will be able  to" visit Nelson instead of obliging Nelson to visit him In Rossland. The commissioner has not yet settled when he  will be able to.get here but it will be  during the last" week of the present  month or the'first week of September.  Just why the commissioner of railway  rates should go to Rossland-to-Inquire  into discrimination in railway rates  and pass over Nelson is rather hard to  understand, but if all the commissioner's work is mapped out in the same  way his report will not carry the weight  which might be expected of it.  It is .claimed that a dozen good  "Scotch, Irish, and English men, all  of them'voters," wore let "out on the  government road .yesterday by foreman  Lindblad. -.*e men discharged say their  places were filled with natives of Sweden, who are not voters.  ^^l^^te "��*������ *^___t* 00i*9 0-^_W> <v *^__t ***__> *���*������* "���*!> 0^__P ~TTr 0*S& 0^k_P -0L.__P '*'-<�� *0  ���^���9*0'0V'^^'0'S��'TSV'0'0'0'0'^'.  to  V.

They found that the  water comes in through a layer of sand  which occurs between two stratas of  clay and as the water may outer the  sand half a mile away it was decided  that the only thing to do was to put in  a drain at a sufficient distance from the  building to protect it.

IRVING & CO,  The funeral of the late Curtis Brott,  who was killed at the Silver King mine  on Monday night, took place from the  undertaking parlors of D. McArthur &  Company yesterday afternoon. The services in the Baptist church and at the  grave were conducted by Rev. J. B.  Morgan. Work at the Silver King mine  was suspended to enable the men to attend the funeral ln a body and there  wore upwards of 350 members of the  Miners' Union in line. The pall bearers were Fred Overton, Joseph Lamb,  Thomas 'Jerome. Richard Gaskill, Alexander VV. Grant and Robert F. Wright.  The funeral service of the union at'the  grave was conducted by James Wilks,  secretary of the Nelson union,  - Captain Gifford is down rrom the Silver King. He says that his cshool-  liouee is now ready fpi* occupancy and  Mex'o Peaceful and Laborious.  In  his   last'inaugural  address  president Diaz of Mexico said that there was  nothing brilliant to'chronicle'in the history of his country for tho last twenty-  five years, but he added that "those nations that deserve to  be called happy  in the only Intelligible    sense    of the  word, far from  being without a    history, have a very glorious and interesting one if besides being peaceful and  laborious they are    also    progressive."  Mexico    undoubtedly belongs    to    this  class, and it has achieved immeasurably  more in the last decade than in the preceding  centuries  of  wars  and  revolutions.    The first thing to note is its  general stability and the progress that  .is implied in sound finance, railway and  telegraph construction, business    prosperity, the final and complete substitution of order for anarchy. But there are  certain  things  that  stand  out preemi-.  nently in the record which deserve    a  more special notice. - In 1S9<5 the publio  school system was re-established    and  =the=authorities=began=to=enforce=in=ear-=  nest a compulsory education���* law.    Instruction is after the best models, and  Mexico today Is doing far more to escape from illiteracy    than Is done In  some   of   the   countries   of  Europe.    It  was in the year  1S96 also that interstate taxes were abolished.    They had  been a great impediment to trade, but  were a main source of state revenue,  and their abolition involved a complete  reconstruction    of the system of taxation, which could    have   been   accomplished  only  in  a  country  of  diffused  industries    and    well-ordered   finances.  The great drainage scheme for the city  of Mexico was completed  In 1898 at a  cost of $20,000,000.    Canal and  tunnel  are some thirty-seven miles In length  and both the energy Implied in the undertaking  and the cost speak for the vil-  tality of the country.    The same may  be said of the Tehuantepec railway en-:  terprise, with i\s fifteen    millions  .Qf  government money for port    improve-,  ments.    During the last five years the  population of Mexico increased by 7.43  per cent.    It now numbers    13,570,545,  Numbers  alone  thus  give  Mexico  Importance, but, as has been shown, they  are not its greatest claim for respect.  Indian blood makes a people unfit for  political and industrial progress, Mexico under the wise dictatorship of president Diaz gives proof, seemingly ineon-.  testable, that this is not so,  N Tba Visit of the" Duke.  The sunshine of a royal presence does  not shimmer every day upon the prosaic landscapes of Canada, and if the  peoplo of this wooden country require  to be schooled and rehearsed, as Is now  being done, in order that no "breaks"  may be committed in giving welcome to  a prince and princess, we may all be  devoutly thankful that royal visits are  rare, and that we chance to have preceptors, ln lord Crcmo de Minto and  major Maudle, who know how to put;  us through our facings. The intention  evidently, is that as few Canadians as  possible shall be permitted to look upon  the future occupant, of the throno. A  social ring fence, it seems, is to bo  erected around his royal highness and  all but the elect are to be shut out from  contact with the holy few inside. ��� In  order to give prince George a correct  impression of the benevolent disposition of the Canadian populace, the  streets wherever he goes are to be tight  ly lined with troops, who will keep the  savage denizens of these wilds from  eating the royal party, and as far as'  possible from satisfying their nonsensical desire to see something of what is  going on. The fire-eating colonels,  meanwhile, will disport themselves and  monopolize as far as possible the attention of everybody.  - According to the present arrangc5-  ments, it will be a grand occasion for  the self-projection of official, military  and social bounders, while those on  foot will be expected to permit themselves to be handled and utilized as  stage properties for effect. 1, for one.  doubt whether the young duke wants  the kind of cut and dried, mechanical,  eight-by-twenty-four velcome that tiie  high cockalorums are arranging. Of  course it is generally understood that  good taste will prevent his taking exception to the program as mapped out  in advance. He is .thus apt to find  himself at the mercy of a clique of official busybodies who are utterly out of  touch with the spirit and wishes of the  loyal thousands who might'% violate  some propriety if not sternly repressed  and  held back.���From Saturday Night.  Disastrous Storms.  HOOSAIC FALLS, N. Y., August 21.  ���Destructive storms in Berushide county, Lower Vermont, and in Eastern New  York, which began yesterday afternoon,  culminated in a disastrous cloudburst  last night. A bridge is gone at Pownal,  Vermont, and people are forced to keep  in houses by the depth of water in the  streets. The wrecking force of the Boston & Maine railway is repairing washouts in the vicinity. North' Adams suffered great, loss from the cloudburst.  The damage there is estimated at half  a million dollars. A man named Fitz-  patrick was drowned while trying to  rescue a horse from the flood. The rainfall continues today.
