Array ESTABLISHED   1892  'VVW^V'A-itiiHs w.  -v  f5kM��r*��-'-'>7^5��_  *ii33  WEDNESDAY  MOKNIN"G, -AUGUST  21,   1901  DAfLY   EDITION  MONEY HAS BEEN PAID OYER  DEAL CLOSED ON THE SPECULATOR GRO.UF.  San Francisco Company Witli an Unpronounceable Name-Are the  Purchasers  The deal on the Speculator group, adjoining the Arlington, oil Springer  creek, in the Slocan City division, was  closed in Nelson yesterday by the payment of $49,000 by J. Frank, Collom  at the Bank of Montreal, who throughout the negotiations has represented a  San Francisco company known as the  Ricowilabi Mining Company, the stockholders in which include R. P. Rithet  of Victoria and a number of wealthy  men of San Francisco, the name of the  company being arrived at by the inclusion of the first couple of letters in  the name of each.  The bond upon the Speculator group  was taken just a year ago by J."Frank  Collom, the terms of the bond "calling  for the payment of $55,000, of which 5  per cent was cash, 5 per cent in six  months, and the balance in 12 months.  This left $40,500 to bo paid at the end  of the year, but the receipts from two  small ore shipments brought this final  payment down to about an even $49,000,  which .was turned over to the owners  of. the group yesterday. "The claims  embraced were the Speculator, Speculator Fraction (staked in .the survey),  ., Mineral Mountain, Eda Fraction. Empire and Westside. The vendors of the  .property were Kirkwood,,of Slocan;  Thomas ���Kilpatrick, superintendent of  ��� the Mountain division of the Canadian  Pacific, Reyelstoke; C.;���___). Smitheringaio,  editor of the'Slocan Drill, and A. Tunics,  a prospector, of New Denver, the two  first mentioned getting away with the  bulk of the purchase price.  At the time the bond was taken upon  the property the work done upon it  . consisted of a number of open cuts by  ground sluicing and one short pros-,  pecting tunnel. The Speculator, wii"  is the best known of the claims, is.the  original location in that neighborhood  of Springer creek, the -Arlington prop-,  erty, which- has since .become'famous,-  being virtually-an" extension of it. Since  taking the" bond'Mr. Collom has kept  a large crew of men employed ih development, and upon, the completion of the  bond .his force is numbering 34 men.  The amount spent in development is upwards of $30,000 to date.  The work done upon the. group has  disclosed that there are two parallel  Icdges-upon it, while others are hei ���  to be on the ground. The work performed by the. original owners was dona  upon what has since become known as  the No. 2 vein. Upon this vein Mr. Collom ran a 200-;foot tunnel, a short distance from the breast of which he sank  a double compartment winze to a depth  of 70 feet. This Work was later abandoned for the time,being owing to the  inability of the development syndicate  to secure the delivery of a hoisting  plant, which got tied up in the strikes  which at present have disorganized "all  branches of industry on the other side   of__tho_international_line. At^.the_sam'_c_  time, as this work was being carried  on, a drift was started in from the  creek, on a showing which was thought  to be on the same ledge, but which  subsequent work disclosed to be a parallel one, and now known as the No.  1. When this drift had been continued  for a considerable distance, a cross-cut  was commenced and run for 98 feet  west from the bottom of tlie winze on  the No. 2 vein and cut the No. 1 ledge,  thus connecting the two ledges.  This No. 1 vein is now regarded as the  most important on the property, as it  is clearly the vein upon "which the  greater part of the work has been done  imon the Arlington. Upon it Mr. Collom has run upwards of 1000 feet of a  drift, with upraises and .cross-cuts to  determine the width and extent of the  ore chutes, which occur in lateral lenzes  through a ledge varying in width from  15 to 20 feet, the ore c-irrying very high  silver values, with a very small percentage in lead.'  On the Eda Fraction a shaft has been  sunk for 50 feet, from the bottom of  which a cross-cut has been run, showing the ledge to be 52 feet in width  at this point. An upraise is to be made  connecting this shaft with the long  drift run in on the No. 1 vein.  About a month ago work was started  on a cross-cut from the west side of  the north fork of Springer, below where  the cross-cut was run to connect the  No. 2 and No. 1 from the bottom of the  winze in the No. 2 tunnel. This crosscut cut the vein at a distance of 1G8 feet  from the surface, and drifts upon the  ledge are now being; run. Some very  quick work was ,:dphe" on this crosscut, the men making between six and  eight feet to the shift.  Besides this work there has been a  great deal done in the way of surface  work by the ground sluicing, and vein  tracing, the No. 1 vein having been  traced clear through the Speculator  group Qf three claims from the Arlington and on into the Ohio group.  There is ore showing in all the openings in the Speculator, but there has  not been sufficient work done to determine the depth of the ore bodies. 'Two  small shipments of ore were made to  the Nelson smelter last spring and the  returns are' said to have, been in the  neighborhood of $50, chiefly in silver.  Of the claims comprised, in the origi-  ���amm  nal group the Speculator, Speculator  Fractional; Mineral Mountain :>_u\ ���<���������'  have been crown granted, but since taking the bond upon the group the holders of it have purchased and staked  a number of properties, so that they  now have probably fhe lnrgest acreage  in one block of any company operating  in the Slocan.  The Speculator group has been developed under the superintendence of  William Thomlinson, who was ably assisted by W. I-I. Warren as foreman.  Will Now Han i?.  SEATTLE, '': Aug. 20.���-Charles W.

All Are Unaminous as to the Bravery  . of the Crew���One. Complains of.  Lack cf Discipline.  VICTORIA, Aug. 20��� Interviews with  the survivors of the steamer Islander  who reached here last night and this  morning ��� failed to throw, any further  light on. the disaster and none were abler  to give any additional names. Both  Michael, Jock and Norman Law, sons  of TI. S. Law of Alberni, waiters, some  reports, say, arc to be added to the" hit  of dead, having been reported saved in  the first instance.. The-quartermasters  who were at the" wheel at the time corroborate the statement of pilot Le  Blanc as to ice having been seen and  also as to the condition of the weather  and. they reiterate the stories of .the  coolness of the officers and crew and cf  the efforts to save the'passengers tit thn  "risk  of tlieir * own  lives.  -  Second' mate Powell1 has modified��� hio  statement that a man on a raft drew a  revolver and threatened him- and captain Foote in his efforts to get them to  leave the raft, and he'now says that the  man simply threatened them and did  not draw a revolver. But the man accused. A. C. Beach, a member of the  first.Canadian contingent, has come forward and says he was the man who  threatened to shoot any one who attempted to. board the raft, saying in  justification that.the raft was already  overloaded and 'that he did not have a  life preserver on while'the others did.  He admits having tried to throw a Chinaman off the raft because he was rolling from side to side and causing ui-3  raft to capsize. He says captain Foote  was sitting on the raft smoking a pipe  which he had handed- him when the  raft capsized, and ho (the captain)  swam away to a spar. Captain Ferry,  one of* the quartermasters, says whon  the doors o the bunkers were .closed., vo  ~"*p"devcnt���the-inflow of water there were  eleven stowaways in there passing coal  and they were taken down in the ship.  The chief engineer who ordered the  bunkers closed did not know that theso  men were still in the bunkers. The  women, the captain says, acted splendidly and after they reached , shore  worked to restore those who were  brought in afterwards. Captain- Harris, formerly a sealing captain and latterly on one of the Yukon river steamers, was coming down as a passenger.  He was with captain Foote in the dining hall when the ship struck and says'-  that the report that the captain was  drunk or that anybody was the worse  for liquor is absolutely false. He wa3  on the bridge up to 12:30 with captain  Le Blanc and verifies the pilot's statement as to the condition of the weather.  When the ship struck he went on the  bridge with the captain and heard him  give his orders in the coolest possible  manner. When the boats were lowered  captain Harris went to the port side,  as the second mate had not yet beeu  called, and he says that every person  who was in sight was taken to the  boat, he being the last one to leave. As  to what happened on the starboard side  he is unable to say. . Every life that was  possible to save, he says, was saved.  The stewards did their utmost to awaken passengers, second steward Fowler giving up his life in the effort, but  the captain thinks many did not realize their danger and went down as  they slept. As others presented themselves there was room for them in the  port boats. S. Applebaum of Dawson  says that, he does not think that ail  the passengers were aroused and he adds  that there was a lack of discipline.  Andrew Keating and his 'two* sons of  Los Angeles and this city were not seen  after the ship struck and it is thought'  that they slept through it all. The Islander was insured for $100,000 but the  company estimates that they lost $b0,-  000 by the disaster and besides lose  their best steamer just as business ic  getting good.  The census of the north will have to  be taken over again as the list was'ioat  with the boat in the wreck.  Two suspects are under arrest at Un-  alaska as murderers of the Sutherland  brothers. Their names are Harding and  Ash ton.  MADE A  FATAL  MISTAKE  CURTIS BROTTLOSES HIS LIFE IN  THE SILVER KING.  Trying to Escape From a Blast He Is  Caught Betwren Cage and Timbers and Terribly Mangled.  A fatal accident occurred at the Silver King mine on Monday night, which-  cost Curtis Brott his life.    The victim  of the accident was employed as a machine man and with John Bolitho was  at  work  in  running a drift from "the  ninth   station   in   the   main   shaft.     A  cage  forms the  easiest means of exit  from these stations to the fifth level,  and as the drifts have not been run in  very far as yet it is the practice for the  men when firing a round of holes to  give a blasting signal to the engineer  in charge of the hoist just before firing, and when .the fuse is started to ascend to the fifth station.   At about 10:30  .on Monday night "Bolitho and his partner were ready to fire their rouiid of  shots.    A few-moments    before, however;   Brott  made  a  trip  to  the  fifth  level for something or other.   When he  got down to the station where he;and  his partner we're working the latter told  him to give the engineer the signal for  blasting,  which was  four  bells.    Brott  went to the hoist and a "minute later  announced  to  Bolitho  that everything  was all right.   The two men then made  their way to the cage and' Brott gave a  one  bell  signal,   which   in the  mining  code used at the mine simply means a  free cage.    He then remembered  that  he had failed to. give the blasting signal   as   instructed   by   Bolitho   and   so  informed his partner.   This placed boch  men  in   a  very  dangerous  position.- as  they were thus robbed of.the attention  of the engineer, .which would have been  theirs had they given the blasting signal, and being in danger in their; position on the hoist they became somewhat  excited.    In response to the seignal of  one bell  the engineer raised the hoist  a few feet to clear it of the station and  then wishing to oil some portion of the  machinery he dropped    it back    down  .part ..of-the'way,'.though not quite to the  station.    In their  excitement the men  on the hoist gave another signal of one  bell, but this being but a repetition of  the signal that the cage was free the  engineer  did   not  pay  much   attention  to it.   The men; in it were by this time  thoroughly frightened, but Bolitho, who  was the cooler of the two, told BroU Lo  give  a  three  bell  signal  which' meant  the   hoisting* of  the   t-age  to  the  surface.    The  engineer heard this signal,  but not having received any notice that  there was a blast going off he proceeded leisurely to throw the hoist into gear  and  comply with  th" signal.    In feat  of  the  shots,  wliich  were, expected  to  go off every moment, the seconds which  took   the   engineer   to   start  the   cage  seemed  minutes.    Brott,   who   by   thio  time was very nervous, announced his  intention of getting out of the cage and  getting out of harm's way by going up  the    ladder.      Bolitho cautioned    him  against this, but Brott thought it was  safer than by remaining on the cage. He  started,  but  about  the  same  time  th**  cage commenced to move up. Brott the;*  tried to get back into the cage but was  ^caught-^between^-the���timbers���and���the  cage  across   the  upper  portion   of  his  body.     A   few   groans   were   the   only  sounds that came from  the victim  us  his   life  was   beiug  crushed   out.     Thij  engineer   noticed   that, something   was  wrong  with  the  hoist and  stopped  it.  Brott was by this time tightly wedged  in and Bolitho gave a two bell signal  to lower the cage in order to free the  body.    The engineer responded and ai  the cage came down and freed the body  it slipped   under it and  falling to  the  ninth station bounded on down to the  sump .about 125 feet  below.    Bolithio  then signalled three bells and was  La-  ken up to the fifth station, where he reported that his partner had fallen down  the shaft.    When the  body was taken  to  the  surface  it  was  found  that  the  back was broken, as were both legs and  one of the armn.  Coroner Arthur was at once notified  of tho accident and yesterday morning  proceeded to the mine, where a jury  composed of M. J. McGrath, Richard  Baxendale, George Popejoy, J. E. West-  over, Samuel Roach and J. P. Stevens  were impaneled. After hearing the evidence, which bore out the circumstances as above related, the jury returned a verdict of accidental death,  through the negligence of the deceased  in not giving the proper blasting signals as instructed by his partner.  The victim of the accident had not  been employed at the mine very long  but was a general favorite He was  about 40 years of age and leaves a  widow and five small children in Brac***-  bridge, Ontario. He was a member of  the L. O. L. and it is thought of the  Foresters and other societies. The mine  will be closed down today to enable the  men to attend the funeral, which will  take place this afternoon at 3 o'clock  from the Miners' Union hall.  Importing a Contractor  SPOKANE, August 20.���If plans which  are under way mature work will soon  be started again with all vigor in tho !  Le Roi and other mines at Rossland,  under the management of Bernard McDonald.  Al Geiser of Baker City, Oregon, passed through Spokane yesterday on his  way home after inspecting the situation at Northport and at Rossland. Mr.  Geiser is a well-known mine operator  -who formerly owned a part of the famous Bonanza near Sumpter. He was  an old friend of Bela Kadesh, manager  of the Northport smelter, who formerly  ran a sampling plant at Baker City.  Mr. Geiser announced in Spokane yes-  tenlny that lie is planning to take a  contract for working the Ross I a rid  ���nines. He said he would also take a  contract for furnishing the Northport  smelter with about;300 tons of lime rock  a day. Mr. Geiser1 made the trip north  in order to get exact information as to  the situation there, before iinally_decid-  ing on the terms which he will offer.  He was furnished by manager McDonald with a full list of the; prices paid for  labor in "all parts of the mine.' ���  Mr. Geiser's object, as he tells it, is ari  extraordinary one. He would take a  contract from the mining companies to  operate-their properties outright. Then  he would go ahead with the mining just  as if he owned the properties. .-He' believes that he would not have any trouble with the union at Rossland, because  the miners would'be working for him  and not for the companies. The present  strike by the miners is chiefly a sympathetic one, brought; about through the*  action of the Le.R'oi company toward  the Smeltermen's .Union at Northport.  Therefore Mr. Geiser expects that he  would have no trouble .in getting the  union men to work for him.  It is not known what his attitude  would be toward hiring miners by contract or on straight wage basis. In  talking over the mucker situation, Mr.  Geiser said: :  "It seems to me thatthe rate of $2.50  per day is ample for'a mucker. A farm  laborer works 16 hours a day for a dollar  and his board. The mucker in Rossland  camp works eight hours for $2.50 a day.  I do not see why more than $2.50 per  day should be paid for mucking in Rossland."    Briber Arrested.  NEW YORK, August 20.���-Ernesto  Sapelli, steward'of the steamer La Gas-  cogne, was arrested and arraigned before justice Alexander today on a charge  of attempting to bribe a United States  officer. - The complaint was made by  William E. Junker, an immigration inspector, who said that Sapelli had offered him $41:. in Unite'd States money  and one 10-fraric piece to go into a  scheme with him to' a'dnut alien passengers' without having them first, pass  through the barge, ofiice. Sapelli was  held in $2500,bail for examination-tomorrow.; It is alleged that such frauds  date back six years and that 10,000 immigrants-have in this way entered .the  country..

LIVES NOW KNOWN  TO HAVE BEEN LOST.  Steamer Turned Completely Cver While  the Wind Was-Blowing- a Gale.  List of the Dead.  PADUCAH, Ky., August 20��� The horror of the City of Golconda disaster at  Cottonwood bar, four miles west of Paducah last night, is just beginning to be  fully comprehended by the people of  Paducah, as the bodies are brought into  the city and taken to the undertaking  rooms. The boat's register has not yet  been recovered, but it is certain the  death list will number 17 and perhaps  22. An official investigation will be  made, as it seems that the most culpable  carelessness caused the catastrophe. A.  A. Peck, the pilot, says the engineer deserted his post and that he could not  manage the boat without'the engine's  help. The engineer denies this and asserts that he remained at the throttle  until the water was waist deep Frank  Enders, one of the passengers, corroborated by several others, declares that  the effort to land brought the side of  the boat around so that the wind struck  it with full force There had been almost a gale blowing for 10 minutes and  one man who could not swim went to  the pilot house and begged the pilot  to land When he did finally consent  to land the hurricane struck the boat  as it swung around in a position least  able to resist it Early this morning the  work of searching for the remains began, the party being led by Charles  Graham, county clerk,'and Luther Graham, his brother, whose sister was  among the drowned. Three bodies were  recovered in the forenoon. The boat  is being dismantled in order that the  dead, may-be reached.  A revised list of the dead as the r**  sult of the sinking of the river steamer  City of Golconda last night is as follows: Miss May Fleming, Birds vii h-  Miss Lizzie Graham, Grahamsville; Miss  Lucy Barnett, Smilhland; Miss Trixie  Grimes, Grahamsville; Mrs. W. A. Hogan and three children, Paducah; Watts  Dales, Livingston county; Clarence  Olayden, Lola, Ky.; Wallace Bennett,  Tolu, Ky.; J. Jackson, colored, Paducah;  Will Woods and Georgo Sandburg, colored, Golconda.  ROSSLAND, August 20���[Special to  The Tribune.]���There has been many  rumors of a possible settlement of the  labor troubles current ohthe street.'-t'o-  day, and it is said that mayor Lalonde  had a lengthy conference with Bernard  McDonald this afternoon on the pbssi-  biliites of an amicable settlement. The  officers of the union, however, know of  no proposition for a conference, and the  rumor apparently is based on news from  London. - It was stated this evening  that Whitaker Wright had been forced  to resign as a director and had been  enjoined, from, taking- any. part in the  affairs of the company owning' the Le  Roi-group:  . 'Superintendent Kadesh has not been  successful at Northport ,and his d.s-  charge was spoken of today. Yesterday  No. 5 'furnace was frozen from 10 a'.���in.  until 5 p. m. and No.; 2. furnace rro, .  a.-m, until 9 p.m., making-four freeze-  ups within 4S hours. ���  Arthur Marsh is better this, evening,  and it is hoped: that he can" be moved  to Halcyon Springs in a few days.

Kerr ��� Houlgate of  Vancouver, whose recent leasing of the  lines of the Columbia Telephone Company was announced last week by The  Tribune, is visiting that company's district offices. Sunday he was at Phoenix, Monday at Greenwood, today he  went to Midway and thence to" Camp  McKinney,-which is the farthest west  the Columbia system extends in British  Columbia. \G. C. Hodge; Nelson manager for Kootenay and Boundary of-the  Vernon" and iNeison company's telephone system, is accompanying Mr."  Houlgate,' who -will- proceed to -Penticton- and' Fairview, returning to the_ Coast  through the Similkameen country via-  Princeton and Hope. The Columbia  company owns a provincial charter empowering it to build telephone lines in  the Similkameen and through to the  coast, and it is probable that Mr. Houl-  gate's principals will arrange to extend  the system' from Camp McKinney to  Penticton,; Fairview and the Similkameen.  An interesting event took place at  the MothervLode mine near Greenwood  Sunday evening, the occasion being the  hoisting for the first time of a large  new Canadian flag-on the mine flagstaff.- The flag measures nine feet by  eighteen feet, and it was purchased, by  mine employes. The British Columbia  Copper, Company, owning the mine, is a  New York City organization, but many  of its men are patriotic Britishers. At  the head of the ceremony and the subsequent proceedings was John McDonald,  the mine poet and orator, who stirred up  much-patriotic-enthusiasm_by_his���elo~  quent and fevid utterances. At half-  past 7 o'clock, following an impassioned  speech by Mr. McDonald, the flag was  hoisted, and "God Save the King" was'  sang and. three cheers lustily given and  then ' the company, which included  Frederick, Keffer, general manager for  the British Columbia Copper Company,  Mrs. Keffer. and Miss Keller, a visitor  from Cleveland, Ohio, guests of the,  mine employes at this function, adjourned to the. mine dining hall, whore  a banquet was held. . The toast list included the following: "The King,"  "President ��� of the United States,"  "Union Jack and Stars am], Stripes,"  "The Flag Just Raised," "The Mother  Lode Mine," and others. Tlie proceedings terminated beforo midnight, all  present .first heartily singing "Soldiers  of the Queen."  stretch to the coal fields can now only  be reached on foot.

PITTSBURG, Aug. 20.���Following the  rapid moves of yesterday on each sid'a  of the great steel strike, there was a lull  today and neither side took decisive action. The contest appears to'be settling down into a determined struggle,  in which-neither side will acknowledge  dfeat while there is hope lert. ��� Joseph  Bishop, the Ohio arbitrator, appeared  here today, but both sides promptly ib-  pudiated the suggestion that anoLncr  move for peace was being considered.  Tlie steel managers '.succeeded, in' stalling the last idle mill at the.Clark plant  'and > are evidently planning a series ol  ���extensions at every point where Lhoi'c  ���is .a chance, of success. .-.-,������ -- ���--  The tie-up of" the Continental and  Pennsylvania plant of the National  Tube Company in this city was completed during the night and early hours  of the morning. The shutting down of  the two plants adds about 1,SOO men to  the force of strikers. The success u:  the labor organizers in getting the men  out cheered the other strikers to a  high pitch of enthusiasm. Tho officials  of the National Tube Company would  not discuss the strike, beyond saying  that they have been keenly disappointed throughout the strike by' the atti  tude of their men and that they hope  that in time they will come to their  senses and come back.  They will probably start'the Star tin  mills'in this city and increase the force  at 'the Lindsay and McCutcheon mills.  An interesting feature of the light at  tlie latter mills,is_conti*ibiited_by���the-  clainr of the strikers that Mrs. Fred  Baugh, wife of the superintendent;, is  escorting tho strike breakers to and  from ' the mill. She has always been  very popular with the mill men, ana  the pickets say thoy would rather face  a regiment of soldiers than do anything  improper in her presence. They say  that in time of peace it was she who  nursed their families and that the;,  cannot interfere'with her or the men  she escorts. The steel manager.* are  also arranging for more men for Lhe  Painter and Monesson mill. Viril Preston,', representing president Schwab, is  here today. Mr. Preston and the oi'.i-  cials whom he met would not talk Tor  publication. Tlie strikers met lhe move  ment to reopen the mills with nonunion men with tho claim that it will  be simply impossible to secure a sufficient quantity of skilled men to operate them. The men here declared Llic>  are standing firm and must be consulted before the mills run. They say they  have the situation well in hand and despite the alleged danger of the strike  getting top heavy continue their work  of organization with a view of crippling more plants belonging Lo the corporation. They claim the Chicago men  will in the end come out and tliat there  is no danger of the Joliet men going  back- to work.  CHICAGO, Aug. 20.���There was no  conference tonight between the stcei  workers employed in the Illinois Steel  Works at Chicago and vice president  Davis, head of the affairs of the Amalgamated Association in the fourth district. It was reporterd during tho afternoon that Mr. Davis had asked Tor a  meeting of the men and that a conference would be held this evening and an  effort made to begin a strike; but the  report proved to be untrue. There is  little if any change in the situation, although an unusual number ol* men have  asked to be excused from work, alleging sickness.  NKW YOUK. Aug. 20.���The resignation of Chap. M. Schwab as president  of the United States Steel Corporation  is confidently predicted in a special to  the Tribune from Pittsburg. It is stated  that Mr. Schwab will devote his energies to the management of the Beth-  lehem Stool and Iron Company. Mr.  Schwab, when seen at the Hotol Lorraine in this city and questioned with  regard to the correctness of the report,  declined positively to discuss it.  SPRINGFIELD, Missouri, August 20."  ���Pierce City, where William Godley  and Geroge Carter, colored, were lynched last night in connection with the  murder of Miss Gazelle Wyld, is today  in the hands of hundreds of armed men  who are intent on driving all negroes  from town. All "negro houses -in this  city are being fired by the enraged  whites. One negro, Peter Hampton, is  said to have been cremated in his home.  The mob broke into the arsenal of the  local militia company and is now in  possession of improved rifles. So much  excitement prevails that it is almost:  impossible to secure over the wires a  connected- stoiy of the outbreak. Correspondents have started from here for  the  scene.  Most of the negroes have left Pierce  City and abandoned their-homes, which  have been burned. A report was sent  out that two negroes in addition to  Godley and Carter were lynched "early  today. This is denied. George Larke,  a porter on the St. Louis and Saii Francisco railway, whom Carter charged  with being Miss Wyld's murderer, was  arested in Springfield this morning and  is in jail here.: Larke declares his iririd- ���-  ceucc and says the man who committed  the crime boarded with him and fled.  Bloodhounds were put on the trail at  the scene of the murder and went directly, it is said, to Larke's home. *  Eugene Barred, a negro suspect, has  told that a man named Fiaveis, ?/fhor  formerly bearded with Larke/ was*the'  real murderer of Miss Gazelle Wyld,  in connection with which murder William Godley, and Gene Carter,; colored, _  were lynched last night. Flavers is said  to bo under arrest at Tulsa, 1. T.. over  the territory line from here, and Barrett is under arest at Mount Vernon,  25 miles from Pierce City. Flavers undoubtedly will be lynched if brought  back. It is not believed Barrett will  be molested. The excitement which led  up to-the lynching of Godley continued .  all night and this morning found the  enraged white people preparing to rid  the city and vicinity of negroes.'"."After  stringing young Godley iip to a pole and  riddling his body with bullets, the mob  went to the house of French Godley.  the young man's grandfather, and shot  ;him dead. They then bombarded -Ike .  Carter's houso, in which were Peter and  Robert Hampton, all negroes. Peter  Hampton, who was 75 years old, was  burned to death, when the -house^ was  set on fire. His wife and Robert Hampton escaped through the flames. The  mob then marched from place to place  burning negro houses and firing into  them. The negroes fled in all directions, many taking refuge in the woods,  while others are coming as far as  Springfield to find places of safety. The  authorities telephoned Monetta, a nearby town, for help, but at 10 o'clock this  morning the city was still in the hands  of the mob. which finally broke into the  arsenalof the Pierce City militia com-  _pany__and_abstractcd��� all rifles���stored���  there. Every train to Pierce City is  bringing in excited whites that add to  the general confusion. The report sent  out last night that a boy was shot is denied today and tlie name of the man  shot today is given as French Godley, instead of E. A. Carter, as previously  stated.   Hov-s From thi Noith  DAWSON CITY, August G.via Seattle,  August 20.���A telegram from Eagle today announces that captain E. D. Dixon,  master of the steamer Louise, died at  Circle August 3d of heart disease. The  Louise is etiroute up the river with four  barges. Tlie heavy tows make her progress slow, but she will be here in a day  or two. Captain Dixon leaves a wife,  a daughter and a son in Oakland, Cal.  He was formerly in the service of the  Diamond Joe Company on the Mississippi river, between Keokuk and St.  Louis.  VALDES, Alaska, August 13, via Seattle, August 20.���The telegraph line  from this place to Eagle City ou the  Yukon has been completed to Copper  Center, while the government trail is  finished as tar as the mouth of the  Chestochina river, 50 miles farther inland. Both telegraph line and trail will  in all probability be completed to Eaglo  before winter. A permanent t'eegraph  office has been estabished at Copper  Creek, which will be Of great convenience to the military authorities, as  well as mining men. The government,  Millard and Glacier trails all center at  this place, which is the only town between Valdes and Eagle. The government has a military reserve at this^  point, with barracks, warehouse, ofiice  and barns, while it-is a central point  for miners ana prospectors going to or  coming from the copper country or the  Chesna district.  PORT TOWNSEND, August 20.���The  steamer John G. Kimball from Nome  August Sth has arrived here. Passengers on the Kiniball bring hard luck  stories from Nome and say that when  winter sets in there will be the usual  number of destitute men who will have  to face starvation or be given transportation Lo Puget Sound. Most of these  had monoy when reaching Nome, but  their efforts to reach reported strikes  have expended their last dollar and they  are now seeking work, but the labor  market is over supplied.  m  ���ii  WM\  W  mmi  m  p*  Wl  S'vi THE IsTELSON TRIBUNE,  WEDNESDAY MORNING,  AUGUST  21, 1901  . i  $ !  * i  11  ��r ������ ���������   to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  Ut  "W ��?-��-: ���^���^"���������rvJiC  to  UDSON'SBAY  coi&:F^ETTr  INCORPORATED 1670.

The cost of freight  and treatment is deducted from the  value of the ore hefore the tax is levied.  It is generally admitted that the cost of  mining Boundary ores is as low as $1 a  ton in some of the mines. The average  cost of freight and treatment is said to  be ?3.75 a ton. This leaves the man  who mines $5 ore a profit of 25 cents a  ton after paying the cost of mining and  freight and treatment charges. Deduct  freight and treatment charges of ?3.7!  from the value of the ore at the mine,  and ?1.25 is left, on which the 2 per  cent tax is paid. The tax is therefore  2 1-2 cents a ton, which reduces the  mine owner's profit to 22 1-2 cents a  ton. If a mine produces 1000 tons a  day, the mine owner will pay $1000 a  day for mining, $3750 a day for freight  and treatment, $25 a day for taxes, and  will have $225 a day profit. Carry these  figures out for a year and the mine  owner will have disbursed $305,000 for  mining, $1,368,750 for freight and treatment, $9125 for taxes, and will have  made a profit of $82,125, which is 20  per cent on an investment of $410,625.  Suppose the tax was "not paid, but* tha:  the province remitted it altogether, the  profit then would be $91,250, or 22.2 per  cent on the investment, Taking everything into consideration, the 2 per cent  tax is not a hardship on the owners of  mines that will pay to work, and those  mines that will not pay to work .had  better remain unworked. Better for* the  owners and better for the province.  Working mines at a loss is ruinous to  the owners .and gives the province a  bad name.  1IIIXIIITTTIIIHTITITTTTTTTTTTT-  LADIES' SUNSHADES  AT HALF PRIOB.

Those who oppose the provincial government subsidizing a railway over Hope  mountains maintain, that traffic can be  hauled cheaper over a long route with  easy grades than over a short route with  heavy grades. Those whofavor the Hope  Mountain    route    for    the    subsidized  Coast-to-Kootenay railway say such a  contention is merely in the interest of  the C.  P. R.    One of the newspapers"  that   has   strongly   urged   the  building  of the railway over the Hope Mountain  route is the Greenwood Times. It wants  a   competitive   railway,   one   entirely  independent of tho C. P. R.   But somehow, the arguments that the Times uses  when   it   is   shouting  for   the   Hope  Mountain route to the Coast is not a  good argument when, discussing cheap  freight rates  between Greenwood  and  eastern points.   In its issue of Saturday  last the Times says:   "The construction  ���' of the Columbia & Western railway  " showed   great  pluck   and   enterprise,  " but we in the Boundary district- pay  "the   piper.  .The  rate'today   on   less  " than- carload lots is almost as high as  " in the old wagon freighting days. Rail-  " ways, if they are to give cheap rates,  "must follow: the-natural conformation  " of the country.    If we are going to  "refuse railways to follow the natural  " highways and allow the C. P. R. to  " charge for climbing over steep moun-  "tain ranges  we are taking the best  " means to drive off the capital we have  " been seeking in all financial centers  "of the globe."   The Times is not consistent.    If  the  Columbia  &  Western  does not haul freight over the mountains between the' Columbia river and  the   Boundary   country   at   reasonable  rates, what leads the Times to expect  that the V. V. & E. will haul freight  over the Hope mountains at reasonable  rates ?  �� NEW AUTUMN GOODS OPENING EVERY DAY ��  fix  _'; Call and see ow Fall Mantles and Ladies' Ready-to-wear Felt Hats.  ny Ladies' Furs, Ladies' Flanelette and Plaid Shirt Waists.  to  First lot of  >.\ WOOL MATTRESSES AND EIDERDOWN QUILTS  to' ���     ���   ��� "4 *  9\  9\  to  NEW GOODS ARRIVING DAILY $1  BARGAINS IN  VALISES  TRUNKS  AND  TRAVELING BAGS.

"The Times does not object to taxing  " mines, but it does object to unfair  "taxation. If the Boundary district is  "to be the great mining district we  '* hope and believe it will he, less than  " ?5 ore will he treated at a profit, a  " profit possibly of 25 cents a ton. Why  "should the owner be called upon to  " pay a 2 per cent tax on ? t out of ?5,  "nearly all of which is wages? Thr  " province by its plan of taxation places  " a premium on the payment of low  " wages in the mines. The higher the  " rate of wages the higher the rate of  " taxation on the net proceeds of the  " mine." The words quoted above are  from the Greenwood Times. If the  Boundary ore is worth only ?5 a ton,  the 2 per cent tax i3 not paid on ?4, as  ^^The^VictoTiarTimes-saTs^there is-a  conspiracy, an that the conspirators are  trying to remove its particular friends  Wilmer  C.   Wells  and  James  Douglas  Prentice from the official positions they  now occupy.    The truth of the matter  is, there is no conspiracy except in the  Times ofllce, where senator Templeman,  who is the Grit head push in British  Columbia, is making plans, and having  them   photographed,    to   capture   the  Dunsmuir   government   for  the   party  that is behind him.   It would please the  Times to see these plans carried.out,  but the people do not care to see either  Joseph Martin or Wilmer C. Wells premier of British Columbia.    Joseph has  had a trial and messed the job.   Wilmer  will never get a trial, for he has bungled the job he has got worse than it  was ever bungled by any of his predecessors, and that is saying a good deal.  Notwithstanding the  assertion of the  Times, that "Wells is the one efficient  " administrator in charge of a depart-  " ment,, the only cabinet minister wit  "whose department work no fault can  "be found," the people of Kootenay, at  least, know that the department of lands  and  works  is  badly mismanaged,  not  only in respect to public works, but in  respect to crown lands.    Thousands of  dollars have  been wasted in building  roads,  and  no  one who has  dealings  with the land department can get satisfactory answers.   No one seems to be  responsible  for  the   waste   of   public  funds, and no one seems to know when  a crown grant will issue for lands. Were  the commissioner of lands and works  what the Times tries to make him appear, these charges could not be made.  The Times simply upholds Mr.  Wells  because Mr. Wells is a Grit, and for no  other reason.  "Boh" Kirkwood of the Slocan is one  of the lucky prospectors. lie has lived  in this district for ten years, and was  Famous in Several Ways.  Invader's victory at Chicago was famous  in  several 'ways.    She  was  the  pick of two boats.   .She defeated the  best craft of eight new boats.    She is  a fin keel craft, and beat a centerboard  boat in a  centerboard  boat's weather,  but was in her turn beaten under conditions usually reckoned as in favor of  a keel boat.- There was one unique feature about the Chicago races, and that  was, the attitude of the" scrutineers on  board  each  boat.    Usually scrutineers  sailing as they do on rival craft hunt  up the softest berth on hoard the craft  they are assigned to, and busy themselves keeping out of the way of the  working members of the crew.    They  try to make themselves as inconspicuous' as possible.    But not so  at Cb  . cago.    Both  George Ernest Macrae of  the  Royal   Canadian  Yacht  Club,   the  Canadian representative on  board  the  Cadillac, and measurer Cothroll of the  Chicago Yacht Club, who saied the Invader, are experts in the game.   It galled  them both to have tp remain passive  when so much depended on the efforts  'of the crews of both boats, so after the  ^first,rac.eJhey=shooluhands^on=an=agree-=  ment to turn in and help to the best of  their ability to .work the craft on which  they were sailing.   The skippers of the  rival craft were willing to accept the  services of an extra pair of hands, an  during the last three races Mr:' Cothroll  and' Mr. Macrae did their prettiest to  make the boats they were sailing on  win.   It shows the spirit of the contest  when such things are possible.    In almost every other sport an officer in the  position   occupied   by   the   scrutineers  would  have  not only refused  to  help  defeat his' own club,  but would  have  openly gloated  at the  discomfiture  of  the rival. . .

It is understood now, however, that Mr. Adam-  son has advised the mechanical department at Montreal that his preference  would be to remain in the steamship service, and he will therefore not accept  the proffered position. It is not improbable that the position of master-  mechanic will now be offered to Mr.  Richardson, chief engineer of the Empress of China.          Is sold everywhere. Ironbrew.

"The evils engendered by chartered  banks compared with their* utility is  overwhelming. Under the present sys-  ,tem bankers can manipulate and contract circulation at will, diverting money  from its proper channels and frequently when conditions are favorable diverting it into more profitable foreign markets. This wealth, too, after all, is  the product of labor, but labor has no  share in its own creation. It is high  time the common people ceased paying  exorbitant tributes in the way of interest compounded'at more than 12 per  cent per annum on loans to fill the  devouring maws of the insatiable banker;: nor do I expect the private banker,  the parasite of tlie financial world to.  '*The will of the people is sovereign  and to its. committee the government  could be safely entrusted the absolute  control, management and direction of  tlie currency. Let the government issue  ;money with its own guarantee. If Lhe  government jssued money at 1 per cent  per annum we would soon hear the last  of the money lords under the present  anarchic system. A scheme could be  easily worked out whereby through  the medium of postmasters :having access to assessment rolls and title deeds,  individuals could secure loans not to  exceed 50 per-cent of their possessions.  Money cannot be made too cheap. Then  would industry "blossom like the rose,"  and an end of the conflicts between  labor and capital be reached. , This is  no philosopher's dream. The thought  of today may be the reality of tomorrow. Tlie real enemies of civilization  are the money barons who out of their  ill-gotten gains build gilded mansions  of immeasurable wealth while the creators of all wealth live like slaves in  unpainted hovels.

The current number of the Mining and  Scientific Press of San Francisco con--  '-.ains a very interesting leading article  entitled "Two Kinds of Miners'  Unions," in which the methods employed in New Zealand in the adjustment of  '.abor disputes in the mining districts  ire contrasted with the means adopted  in British Columbia, the difference being  shown to be manifestly unfavorable in  che case of the latter." Additional point  :s given to the .argument by the coinci-  .lence that in both countries the muckers  or shovelers��in so'me of the mines are  Jissatisficd with-the rate of wage paid.  :or this class of labor, and in both cases  ire endeavoring to secure a recognition  ���of their claims. The difference, how-:  -yer, is that while in New Zealand there  :s no cessation of work, and, therefore,  io industrial disturbance,'in British Columbia the dispute has resulted * in  throwing .several hundred men out of  amployment, of locking up several millions of capital, and of throwing the  vvhole machinery upon the regular oper-  ���ition,of_which^the^Pi--Osperity^of=an=im-^  ,*ortant commercial.center depends, out  jf gear. Now, the dispute in New Zea-  .and is practically identical with that  it Rossland. In each instance the n-uck-  jrs demand increased pay, which the  jmployers refuse on the ground that the  margin of profit is not sufficient to ad-  .nit of an increase in the scale of wages,  i'lie difference in the position of the  .:wo countries is this: .In New Zealand  .he labor union is a. union of all employers and all who labor. It is the  .state. It is responsible, if labor has an  ���Quitable right to reasonable wages aud  .naintenahce of employment, so, too, has  die employer an equitable right to the  jonditions which permit fair wages and  jontinuous work. Neither is permitted  io injure the other, and the real facts  jontrol findings, regardless of who may  je sustained in the special contention.  Jn the otherhand, while in British Co-  ruinbia the political power of the labor  union is paramount, the power is exercised by a self-elected faction of the  people, and represents what they con-  ���ider their personal policy, regardless of  che equities of those not of their labor.  union faction. The labor union is no  t union of all employers and all men  who labor. It is a union of a self-  elected portion of the men who labor,  it has as an organization no place in  law. It is wholly irresponsible, in New  ieaiancl no laborer stops working, pend  .ng a dertermination of the facte. BoV  parties meet equally before the law, and  are equally bound by its judgment. If  che laborer is given what he asks, he is  bound to accept it for a definite time.  There is no loss of productive energy  anywhere. There is only a more equitable distribution of its production. Every  man has a right to work and is insured  a. just wage for his labor. The employer  is not restricted in the use, enjoyment  ">r reproductive power of his capita'.  In British Columbia every laborer  stops working, not alone those who consider they have a grievance, but every  laborer in other branches of the same  trade, and laborers in other trades as  well, entirely independent of any direct  material interest in the differenc*. The  employers are stopped by force from  working. Neither party is before the  law. There are no judgments. If the  laborer is given what he asks, he is no'  bound to continue accepting it for any  period of time at all. There is the loss  of the prpductive energy of an entire  Nelson Branch���Burns Block, 221 Baker  Street.  J. M. LAY, Manager.  community, or it may be several communities, till the-difference is adjusted.  Every man does not have a right to  work. No man is insured just wages  for. his labor. The employer is restricted  in the use, enjoyment and reproductive  power ������-���of his   capital.  This briefly summarizes the article in  the journal to which I have referred,  and no one will deny that the comparison as made is fair and admirably  stated. One cannot, however, under the  circumstances, help being amused at tha  following paragraphs:  "Broadly speaking, the New Zealand  idea of labor union is constructive of  society; the British Columbia idea is"  destructive of society. The difference  starts with the difference between responsibility aiid; irresponsibility: The.  difference in the two countriesi to ('-.lumen aiid society, the state or the public,  as a result of the difference of method  employed'-. by workmen doing the same  kind of work, and making the same demand of their employers, is measured by  an enormous sum ,of productive energy.  . "New Zealand shows what responsible;  lawful labor union does for the laborer  and for society. British Columbia shows  what irresponsible; unlawful labor union  will do to degrade society." Tie details  of how New Zealand--'does.;it are nn  essential. The essential element is responsibility.". ;.: :X7:"- '-���'.'.  The writer of these paragraphs is the  editor of a San Francisco paper,.a"-1  will be observed that he speaks, of the  "BritislKColumbia idea" of settling labor difficulties as something quite unique  and .peculiar to this country. Having  just returned from a visit to San Francisco, I can authoritatively state that  the pernicious and disastrous ."British  Columbia idea" lias already been communicated to California, and .the system .there has become so popular that  every branch of trade, manufacturing  and commerce has, since it" was put  into practice in April last, become paralyzed. Doubtless it will afford the.editor of the Mining and Scientific Press  some satisfaction to learn that British  Columbia, having originated the strike  system, is now being fitly rebuked by  the compulsory suspension of operations  at tho Nanaimo . collieries, In consequence of the successful adoption of  this novel "idea" by the "workingmen of  San Francisco/'  A'Primitive Railroad;  The Japanese may claini the distinction of having the smallest and most  primitive railroad in actual .operation.  Running between the "pretty little seashore coast town of Atami and Yoshi-  hama, in the province of Izu, Japan,  there is a railroad-that is small enough  to be a child's plaything. It is seven  miles long; the cars are not more than  five feet high; the motive power is the  muscle of the Japanese coolies. If the  ���traveler wishes to see Japan as she  appeared before she began to adopt the  arts of civilization it is necessary for  him to leave the great cities and the  beaten routes of travel. The only ways'  of getting into the primitive places are  to walk or be carried in jinricksras. It  was in a tramp of this kind that J.  _g. T-nrl-an of the Pacific_Mail-Steamship,  company discovered the minature railroad.  Speaking of this railroad, Mr. Larken  writes: "Arriving at Atami late in the  clay, after a ten-mile tramp over the  Ten Province pass, our time being  rather limited, we decided to start sight  seeing early the following morning" by  visiting the 1500-year-old temple of Iz-  usan, three miles distant, Our host,  in flowing kimono, with repeated bows  and continuous smi'le, informed us that  Atami was quite a railroad center, and  that a train would convey us to tlie  temple in quick time. We accepted his  offer, though rather regretting after  two days of hard walking in search of  native customs, to again find ourselves  in tho tourists' beaten track. Happily  our impression was erroneous, and we  were much surprised the following  morning when we reached the miniature carhouse to see the car backed out.  The 'engineer' on the front platform  gave a long blast on a horn, and we  were off at a lively pace. ��� Griping-a  hand rail on either side of the rear  end of the car, two powerful little coolies were pushing and puffing at a great  rate. When under good headway or  going down grade the pushers would  jump on the rear platform to rest. The  engineer's duty on the front platform  was to apply the brake, blow a warning horn on rounding curves aud try  his level best to hang on. This miniature monopoly runs through tiers of  rice paddies and fine groves, skinting  the sea of Japan, some 450 feet above  its level. In America a trip of this  character, occupying five hours, the  services of a private car and three men,  would cost ten dollars. In Japan the  trip costs 21 cents, including tips for  the coolies' tea. The first class cars  open at the end, just as our coaches  do. The second class cars open on the  side, like the coaches in England. There  is no such thing as standing up in one  of these cars and the traveler gets  many bumps on his head before he arrives at his journey's end. It is perfectly safe for foreigners to travel  through the country where this railroad runs; a woman could travel  through it alone without fear of injury  or insult, unless she ran across foreigners."

Times without, number since he has  been in the colony he has been described as hotly -pursued, cornered or  crushed up against the' Orange river in  full flood, his capture being expected  every hour, but when; the columns surrounding him ' and his hard-pressed  forces-converged at the point where he  was expected to; be found it-was invariably discovered' that he had .passed  through some gap in .the British encir-  cling line and doubled hack on his  tracks or-gone off in some other direction. At one moment he will have more  than -1,0,00 men with him and a day or  two later,.'when- the British have concentrated, it-'wiir.be only to find that  they have broken up into small bands  and disappeared among the nlountains  where pursuit is useless.'One correspondent wrote at the end of March that  the chase* after Kritzinger continued unabated and twas-full of curious situations .No fewer than seven columns  were in hot pursuit of-liimj driving him  to the Orange river," which was unford-  able; but when they thought they had  him caught they discovered that he was  fifty miles in their rear threatening the  railway after having Droken up his  command into two sections. Then everything had to begin again! An officer  of the Intelligence Department who fell  into Kritzinger's hands gives an interesting account of his experience He  was on his way to notify the local force  in the Craddock-district of Kritzinger's  proximity, when he found the , dnft  where he proposed-to cross a river held  by the Boers. Endeavoring to swim the  stream at another point he lost his  horse and narrowly escaped drowning,  boing rescued by a passing Kaffir who  chanced that way." Later he recovered  his horse, which had landed lower  clown, and rode off to warn the locals  He had ridden barely ten minutes in the  direction he had to go when he "was  brought up short by two men sitting  on a bank. One called but "Good morning," and the two. advanced to make  him prisoner. One was the Boer commandant and the other, his riglr.-liand  man Krog.''.'They were watching a  large British force which was crossing  the  railway  line   in  the  far ..distance.  Finding there was no help for it, ho  submitted-with good grace and was  closely searched, but no papers were  found on him, he having previously destroyed those he had carried. :He was  deprived of his horse, saddle and field  glass, but his watch and money "weie  left with him... Kritzinger he d.es.cribcl  as Ir'fincTlooking man about five feet  ten inches iu height, broadly built and  speaking English perfectly. At the time  of their meeting the Boer commander  was attired in lavender colored trousers," with yellow tanned gaiters, a. well-  cut coat, starched white linen sliirt and  a brand-new tallyho hat with puggaree. He wore gloves and carried a  hunting crop. His men were well dressed and all their horses wero in splendid condition. It was believed that one  of tlie reasons of general De Wet's ic-  turn north of the Orange rivor so soon  after his last advance into Capo Colony  was his recognition of Kritzinger's ability to carry on tho operations without  his assistance.

The work. done upon  the property has shown the ledge to be  20 feet wide. The values are carried in  the quartz, which, in some places, is  six feet wide, and the average value  indicated from assays gives $50 to the  ton. Two tunnels have boen run in  upon the ledge. The upper one has  been carried in for a distance or :���  feet. In tliis tunnel the ore varies in  width from 10 inches to four feet, and  in the driving of the tunnel about threo  cars of shipping oro were taken out, one  of whicli \wis.,,shi plied'ra nil tire rest is on  the (lump. The second tunnel litis been  run iii about. UIO feet lower down the  hill. It. is in 200 reel and is in ore  all   the   way  t.o  the  face.  Upon what appears to be u parallel  vein a shaft has been sunk to a depth  of 30 feet, following down a chute of  ore, but work on this was discontinued,  owing to the presence of considerable  quantities of water. A second shaft  was also sunk over the upper" tunnel.  This was put down nearly 50 feet and  is in ore for the greater .portion of the  way, but the water forced the workmen out, and work upon it has been  suspended until an upraise can be safely  put in from the tunnel. All told th'**  Portland men have expended about  $100,000 on the development of the property. Two men are at present employed,  but the force is to be increased at once.  {""j  TELEPHONE 27  B~5rsns Sc co.  PAINTS, OILS /\ND CLASS.  GARDEN   TOOLS.

Grundy, a piano salesman, was  up in the police court yesterday charged  with a breach of the city by-law in that  he was selling pianos, or endeavoring  to sell them, without flrst taking out a  license. When tHe case was first called  in the afternoon Grundy did not seem  to realize that he was in a court and  sat puffing a cigar until he was called  down by" the court. This roused him  and when he appeared again in the afternoon he took the precaution of having counsel in the person of W. A. Macdonald. The only material ��� evidence  taken was that of S. M. Brydges and in  the opinion of justices Fletcher and  Strachan, who took tlio csise, a conviction was made out. XV. A. Macdonald,  however, took exception to Mr. Strachan  sitting on the case in view of the fact  that it was a city case and ho was also  city clerk, and the further objection that  the charge was bad in that it was not  sufficiently specific. In viow of this and  the further fact that chief Jarvis said  that lie had further evidence which he  could produce, tlio* case was enlarged  until this morning.  A Slncnn Mininfi- T>:*.1  George Aylard  of  New Denver  and  Neil Gething of Slocan were in Nelson  yesterday closing up a deal on the Gold  Viking, New Phoenix, and Viking Fraction, situated two miles east of Slocan.  This  group  of  claims  has  been  under  bond since the first of November last  to Thomas S. Dunbar, who represents a  syndicate of Portland   men,  who  have  formed a development syndicate known  as the Viking Development Syndicate.  ���    The   life   of   the   bond   held   by   the  Portland   people   had  not  expired,   but  the property has developed so well and  has received so favorable a report from  W.   H.   Sandiford   of  the   Bosun  mine,  New  Denver,   that  the  holders   of   the  bond considered they were perfectly safe j  in   closing  the  matter   up,  which   was !  done   last  ovening  by  the  payment of I  ���$7500 in cash, and the allotment of 15 j  per cent of the stock in t.ho company I **���  be formed  to  develop  the property;   it  also  being  ono  of the  conditions  that  the   promoters   of   the   company   shall  place in tho treasury $50,000 for devel- i  opment. i  The Viking  is   a  gold  property  and  the ore, "while not a free milling pro-  Routine Business Transacted.  There was little outside of routine  business taken, up at the meeting of the.  city council last evening. The financial  issue presented by the auditor's report  was not discussed, the report being simply read and ordered filed with practically no debate." The only other matters  which afforded room fof discussion were  the three by-laws, but these were all  laid over. The cemetery by-law was  laid over because the copy of .tho by-law  desired from Winnipeg had not arrived;  the local improvement frontage tax by-  law.because the'members of the council  have..' not- yet -made up their minds  whether to make it a law'or-to .kill it,  and the tuberculosis by-law for; the  reason that the provincial regulations  embodied in it have not yet been adopted  by any other municipality and the.best  medical authorities still continue to differ as to whether tuberculosis is infectious or not. This presents briefly what  the council did not do. What it did attend to were simple routine matters.  A communication was received from  Dr. Arthur) .secretary of the board  of.  school trustees, inclosing the account of  architect Carrie for service in connection  with   the .. preparation   of    school  plans, the account being for one-half of  his fees, which, according to the good  habit   of   architects,   becomes   payable  when the contract for the building is  executed, namely, $244.25.   The trustees  are out of funds and the matter was  referred to the council with a view to  securing   payment.    After   much    dis-  =eussion,=iin=tlie-=couri>,j=of=whiclwthe^  mayor commented on the somewhat unusual feature of an alderman having a  contract for the erection of a buiding  in which the city was financially interested, the entire matter of the expenditure of the city's $5000 contribution toward the school building was referred to  alderman Hamilton as chairman of the  finance committee to consult with the  school board and the government agent  and decide upon some definite plans for  payment.    Alderman Hamilton will report to the council at its next meeting.  The matter of a necessary drain for the  school   building   was   referred   to   the  mayor and city engineer.  The report of the finance committee  recommending the payment of the current accounts and recommending that  the claim of the local telephone company for a remission of its telephone  license be not allowed, was received  and adopted.  The matter of a destitute family on  Water street, in whicli a woman has  been left with the care of a large family off her hands, was referred to the  mayor to look into.  The application of Emerson & Reisterer for sewer connection for their  new brewery was referred to the city  engineer to report. The desired connection will cost about $500.  The communication of W. JR. Bloom  and others for a sidewalk on the eastern end of Victoria street was referred  to the board of works.  to Greeinyood,' arriving there about 12  o'clock, but learning that the woman had  gone on->to cross the line at Midway  and had had more time than needed, he  did not go further. But Johnson had  blood in his eye. It is said he lo ���  money in the failure of a Spokane bank  in 1S93, and since then he would trust  no bank, and he proposed to make an  effort to recover the $1S00. He engaged  solicitor Whiteside "and swore out a  warrant, charging a woman named Clara  Wells with the theft and had her arT  rested.  "The case came up for hearing on  Tuesday evening before police judge  Williams, and as the defendant, by advice, of her solicitor, W. B. Cochrane,  would not plead, she was held over for  trial at the county court. She was  taken to Greenwood and placed in jail  till she could'furnish $2000 bonds. The  testimony and papers iri the case were  mislaid or lost on Tuesday night or  Wednesday morning, which has occasioned some trouble to those interested.  In the meantime, Alexander Bloomfield,  the livery man, who was hired by the  woman'who took French leave, returned, saying he had been as far as the  American Okanagan.
