'.The Tribune.]���the folowing cable message was received in Rossland this morning:    ���-,  LONDON,- August 23.���Whitaker  Wright, managing director of the Le  Roi Company, tendered his resignation  yesterday. The extraordinary general  I- meeting of shareholders will be held on  Thursday next. Proxies antagonistic to  the present management are being received by thousands'. It is altogether  probable a clean sweep of the entire  management will be made. The British  Columiba and Northport officials are  generally discredited."  Edwin Durant, formerly oflice manager at'the Le Roi head7oflice here, arrived in New'York on the Cimeric on  [-Tuesday last and started on his way  west immediately. He is expected in  Spokane tomorrow.  Kenneth Chisholm a,nd John Freeman, two miners working in the shaft  of the Green Mountain mine, have been  injured,; Chisholm by a piece of steel  entering his eye and Freeman by the ore  bucket falling on hitn.  Ton more of the non-union men at the  Le Roi smelter at Northport left on the  south-bound train today. Both furnaces  at the Northport- smelter went cold at  10 o'clock this morning, and were. not  free this afternoon. Peters and Hankers, two of the scab junk men at North-  port who were out on $400 cash bail,  have failed to deposit the amount and  the officer ���went after them this afternoon. Unless the money is forthcoming  both men will be jailed.  Bernard MacDonald returned from  Spokane this  afternoon.  Union Men Rejoice.  NORTHPORT, August 23.���[Special to  The Tribune.]��� President Ben R. Shed  of the Northport Mill and Smeltermen's  Union, recived a-, message from tho  Rossland Miners' union, this afternoon  informing him that a cablegram"had just  arrived from London- wliich stated that  Whitaker Wright had just resigned from  Lis position of managing director of the  7'Rossland Great Western'mines and allied companies. This'ail'ects Northport  very greatly, as the smelter here is controlled by the corporation:of which Mr.  Wright has been the director. It also  indicates that governor Mcintosh has  won his great fight against. Bernard  MacDonald; the local manager'of the  company's British Columbia property.  The union members are rejoicing,  as they are.' confident that governor Mcintosh. .. will recognize  their organization. Secretary' Conway, of the union said tonight: "The  treaty of peace will soon be signed."  . Manager Kadish of the smelter  was told of the cablegram this  evening. He laughed and said: "I wonder what their.story will be tomorrow."  He would hot say anything further on  =="ther=subject7^ ��� '   The Reason for It.  l' CRANBROOK, August 23.���[Special to  The Tribune.]���The chief topic of conversation the past two days is the sensational rise in Sullivan stock. It has  jumped from 7 1-2 to 13 bid and more  offered. Naturally there is a disposition  to guess what is back of this move, and  yesterday the secret leaked out when  John Hutchinson, one of the leading  mining brokers of the district, said that  he had had standing orders for Sullivan  stock for three months past, and imparted the information that the directors of the Sullivan mine had decided to  1'iiild a smelter. This will, mean a big  -thing to Southeast Kootenay, since it  will furnish the means of a-eiium? tli  .ore virtually on the ground. The location Js not given out, but there is little  ���doubt that it will go to Marysville, a  town with a name only at the present  lime, on the junction of Mark creek and  the St. Marys river.  Temporary Shut Down  GREENWOOD, August 23.���[Special to  Tlie Tribune.]���After a most successful  run of six months it has been found  necessary to shut down for a few days  the furnace . at the British' Columbia  Copper Company's smelter at Greenwood, to allow of the brickwork forming  the upper part of the furnace being renewed. The furnace was olown out yesterday afternoon and today bricklayers  commenced to make the requisite renewals. ' It is claimed for this single-  furnace, which has a nominal capacity  of 225 tons, that it has the best average  record known in the history of copper  smelting. During five months it has  -treated -i daily average of 371 tons of  ,ore. Latterly the average has open  .higher, that for the month of July having been 385 tons per day. The closing  down of the smelter has involved a  isimilar temporary suspension of all ore  producing work at the Mothsr Lode  ;mine, Deadwood. camp, practically all  the ore bins at the mine and smelter  being full. A few men continue at timbering and other'work requiring attention at the mine, but most of the mine  .employees have been laid off until Wednesday or Thursday of next week   The  most definite assurances are given bj"  the general manager of the company  wliich owns both the mine and smelter  that operations will be resumed on as  early a day next week as it shall be  possible to complete the repairs to the  furnace by. Tho smelter will still continue to receive all the ore the B. C.  mino will send in so the mine will not  bo inconvenienced by the temporary  stoppage at tho smelter.  Ymir Gossip.  , YMIR, August 23���[Special to The  Trubune.]���Rev. H. Young and bride arrived homo on the 4:30 train yesterday  afternoon and were met at the depot  by a crowd of wellwishers. In the evening at the Presbyterian church a reception was given the couple. The roll of  fare was talking, with a little music  and ice cream and cake on the side.  The music was furnished by Messrs.  McRoberts, Daly and Coffey, while the  ladies handled the refreshments in a  very cool manner. On behalf of the  Masons of the camp, Lawyer Burne presented the pastor with a good sized  purse, and P. Daly on behalf of the  boys handed him over another roll. The  Ladies' Aid society presented the pastor  and wife with two handsome oak chairs.  The meeting came to an end by all present wishing the newly wedded couple  health, wealth and prosperity and that  their trail through the wilderness of  coming years may be ��� paved "with good  paying rock, and their troubles may  be ''|ittle ones." Mr. and Mrs. Young  will reside in Mr. Desbusay's bouse until the manse is completed.  Ymir Miners' Union can now boast  of a membership of nearly 350. The  jurisdiction extends from the limits of  Nelson to the boundary line. There are  only some half dozen unfair miners in  the camp, and they are branded forever  with,a big S.  Travelling passenger agent Carter of  the C. P. R. was in the camp yesterday,  and was shown the sights by John Buck-  worth.  A 10-stamp mill is installed at the  Fern mine and is working satisfactorily.  A number of .miners will be put to  work next week. The Fenio is under  lease to Mr. Nichols, a Montana- mining man.  Fishermen have had great luck the  past few days, most of the big strings  being caught in the neighboring camp of  Erie. Messrs. Lovell and De Harris returned Wednesday with1 900, Judge  Buckworth had a basket of 120 and  Charley Archibald had so many-, he  wouldn't count them.  Al Parr, secretary of the Miners''Union, sent out; some men yesterday morning to do development work on , the  Pathfinder, owned by..him and associates. The Pathfinder is. n free..' milling  proposition and is situated on the north  fork of Clear creek, adjoining the Summit and Dumas. - Recent assays range  from $20 to $36. -  :       .  D. McLachlan, the hardware man of  Nelson, Charles H. Wolf, ore buyer for  the Granby smelter, Grand Forks, and  A. R. McKinley, a' safe man from Toronto, were, doing the camp yesterday.  There are about 45 pupils attending  the public school, and Miss Urquhart,  the teacher, has troubles of- her own  these days. ., .'  J. Morley Hoag, H. M. Porteous, Nelson; and William Berry, traveler,"' of  Hamilton, registered at the Cosmopolitan yesterday.  At a meeting of the Ymir Liberal Association held on the 19th instant, Dr.  A. C. Sinclair of Rossland was unanimously endorsed for the vacancy in the  Dominion senate to represent the Kootenay as the census returns gives British  Columbia another senator. Outside of  Victoria we did not know there was  a=man=in=iBi*itislwColumbia=at=present=i  eligible for the senate, for when he gets  old and only in the way he is usually  sent to the old man's home at Kamloops.  If Kootenay is entitled to a senator, by  all menas let the doctor get the appointment, for he has been a great service in  years gone by to the Grit party.  The lumber has arrived for A. B.  Buckworth's cottage he is erecting on  Second avenue and carpenters were put  to work today. When completed it will  be by far the handsomest dwelling in  camp���and Ymir lias some good ones.  It is said that bedbugs are so plentiful up at the Ymir mine that the boys  before retiring for the night have to  picket their clothes to keep the bugs  from carrying them off. Strange, is'nt  It; but true.  The bakeries of Nelson make regular  shipments of bread to this camp. We  don't see any reason for this for there's  a flrst class bakery in town that turns  out punk like our mothers used to make,  and is far superior to the Nelson article.   Pilgrims, patronize home industry.  To Welcome Prince Chuan.  NEW YORK, August 23,���Chinese  merchants in this city and Chinese consul Chou Tsz Chi have already commenced elaborate preparations for the  reception of prince Kwan Su, who is expected to arrive in this city in about a  month.

Purser Places the Number That  Were Lost at Forty.  adjournment of the first session none of  the participants would give out any information of the proceedings further  than to say that the leaders had been  called together for the purpose of having the situation thoroughly explained  to them; to have some action taken  looking to the aid of the.strikers morally and financially by all. of the organizations represented. The conference ended tonight at 9 o'clock and the  conferees left for tlieir homes.  VANCOUVER, August 23.���[Special to  The Tribune.]���The steamer Hating arrived , at .10 o'clock this morning from  Skagway. Five hundred people met the  boat here, and many anxious inquiries  were made. The only Islander passenger who came down was Lister Gill, of  the Hudson's Bay stores here, who went  down with the ship., He was struck by  a plank and his head is still bandaged  as a result of the accident. He was in  the water three hours when rescued.  Five bodies were brought down by the  Hating, the remainder being buried at  Juneau. The bodies were those of Mrs.  J. H. Ross and child, Mrs. Ross of Seattle, Dr. John   Duncan. and   captain  Foote. 7 Governor Ross started out from  Dawson immediately on receipt of the  news,and came down by the Hating to  accompany the remains east. H. ,H.  Morris, of the Bank of Commerce," came  down, but contrary, to a former report  was not a passenger by the Islander.

An.inquest was held  at Juneau on the body of Dr. Duncan  and the following verdict rendered:  "We, the jury impaneled and sworn  in the matter of the inquest upon the  body of Dr. J. A. Duncan,.deceased, find  that he came to his death on August  15, 1901, by the wreck of the steamer  Islander and by the evidence produced  we find that we can blame no one for  the accident."  Purser Bishop will probably come  down by the steamer Danube. Search  for bodies is still going'on. The marshal-at Juneau has endeavored to capture Indians charged with looting the  bodies of the wreck victims..

PITTSBURG, August 23.���A summary  of the steel strike situation tonight  shows about the following conditions:  This city���Star mill, two mills running. Strikers say five more men left  the plant and joined their ranks, but  the management positively deny this  statement. Painter mill, four mills running. Fire lighted in Bar mill furnaces,  but failed to start. Pennsylvania  Tube Works, mill idle. Machinists say  they will quit tonight. . All Carnegie  mills funning full.  McKeesport���Dommler plant idle and  no attempts will be made to start it  before next week. Everything else closed  down.  Irondale���Mill running with same  force as every day, making two turns  and assurance from the manager that  more men will be added to them.  Wellsville ��� Situation is unchanged.  Twelve mills running.  Lisbon���Fires started in tin plate  plant. Manager George Evans says that  everything is ready for starting soon  with plenty of men, Strikers voted today to remain out and mills strongly  picketed.  Wheeling���Everything tied up and no  apparent effort to start any of the mills.  Bellalr���The National Tube Company  idle. The plant will, it is said, be started  next week by a full loree of men. No  advices have been received by the Amalgamated officials from either Belleville or Joliet and the situation at these  points is considered by them to be unchanged.  A conference of the leaders at the offices of the Amalgamated Association  today was the leading feature of the  strike during the day. Officials of the  organization seemed pleased with the  way things are moving and one said  somewhat mysteriously,: "In another  six days you will see a deoided change  in the strike that will tell with greater  effect on the trust and aid in hurrying  the outcome.' Just what this change  is to be was not said, but it was inferred  strongly that the coming events hinged  upon the conference that was taking  place. Two sessions were held by the  conferees behind closed doors. After the  Broke Completely Down and Had to.  Ee Tied to a Board to Keep  Him Upright.  SEATTLE, August 23.���Charles ' W.  Nordstrom was hanged here today for  the murder November 27th, 1891, of William Mason. Shortly arter<, 9:30 o'clock  Nordstrom was taken to a room adjoining the death chamber. He wept  contiunally. It-required the utmost efforts of four men to keep him on his  feet. When he was taken into the death  chamber he broke down entirely, crying in a childish voice and praying that  his life be spared.,Then he collapsed entirely and fell to the'floor. Efforts to  raise him and keep him on his feet were;  frustrated. Finally sheriff .Cudihee ordered that a board be brought and to  this Nordstrom was tied. It-required six  men to 7 hold him ��� for the operation.  Several times I"Jordstrom seemed to  speak, but. his-'"words were unintelligible.

TORONTO, August 23.���Judgment  was delivered yesterday in an important  arbitration case between the Dominion  government and the provinces of Quebec and Ontario. The motion of the Dominion government to wipe out about  $190,000 of trust funds which were to b**  credited against portions of a debt of the  Dominion of Canada, due by the respective provinces, was refused  QUEBEC, August 23.'��� It is not expected that the duke and duchess of  Cornwall can reach Quebec September  16th, the date scheduled. In order to  reach Quebec in time the Ophir would  have to travel at the rate of 30 knots an  hour, and even if the Ophir were callable of attaining this high speed she  could not be pushed for such a distance.  It is therefore believed that tire royal  party will not reach Quebec before September 22nd.  To Phoenix and Other Towns, as Well  au to the Mines, in the Boundary Country.  Southeastern British Columbia has  great mines, and no section in the world  is making more rapid strides in developing water power' for the transmission  of electricity. The. plant of the "West  Kootenay Power & Light Company on  Kootenay river, 12 miles below Nelson,  is one pf the noted plants of America.  Electrical current for both power and  light is transmitted to Rossland, a dis-r  tance of nearly ,40 miles. .Another plant  is under way at Cascade, on the main  Kettle river, and when completed electrical current for power and light will be  transmitted over 20 miles' to Phoenix,  which has. the same relative position in  the Boundary that Rossland. lias in the  Trail Creek country. Both are towns  amid working mines. The plant at Cascade is owned by the Cascade Water,  Power & Light Company, Limited, of  which J. Roderick Robertson of Nelson  is general manager. The following description of the-work already done and  ���to-ibo done is authentic:  The plant is situated on the main  Kettle river at Cascade City. The river  at this point runs through a rocky  gorge in a series of rapids and falls for  a distance of about half a mile and has,  a natural fall in that distance-of 121  feet. For the development of the power  a dam lias been constructed at the head  of the gorge, wliich raises the water to'a  height of 36 feet above the' natural level,  thus giving;a.,- head of 156 feet at low  water. The dam is constructed of timber '.- crib work filled with rock and is  40 feet thick at the base and. slopes  back to a width of 24 feet on the top.  The total length of the dam is 400 feet  and the totalheight from the base to the  .-top".'is'50������feet in the deepest part of the  channel tapering off to a height nf "'  feet at the sides. About 10,000 cubic  yards of rock were required to fill -the  crib work.  -The''7site-Jis' on ��� .a -solid ��� rock -bod  throughout and the foundation timbers  are solidly-bolted, tb the rock. The permanent water level will be 10 feet below the top of-the dani, and provision  has been made to control the water level  during periods of high water by a series  of sluiceways, 12 in number, which .can  be opened to a depth of 12 feet below  normal level. This will give an area of  about 2000 square feet of. waterway  through which to pass the flood water.  The sluiceways are closed by means of  stop logs, 12 inches square, dropped one  on top of the other in a groove provided for their reception. A steel rail  track will be placed on the top of the  dam on which a traveling winch can be  run over the sluiceways for the purpose of drawing up the stop logs as the  water rises during floods. This winch  will be operated by hand or electrical  motor. The site of the present dam  was;chosen with the view that at some  future time a concrete masonry dam  could. Jje^eonstructed _b.e.lp_w_th.e_.p.r_es.e.nt  the outside work, buildings, etc. is being  completed for the early installation of  the machinery at the power house at  Cascade.  The Columbia & Western Railroad  Company are putting in a side track for  the unloading of the machinery - and  other material at Cascade, wihch will  probably amount to over 50 car loads  before the end of this year.  A Bandit Nailed.  HAVANA, August 23.���Lino Lima, the  notorious bandit for whose capture dead  or alive the military government offered  a reward of ?1,000, has been' killed at.  Masurijes in the province of Mantan-  zas. The police assisted the rural guard  and four other bandits were captured at  the same time. The body of Lima will  be photographed, for the purpose of  identification. Lima's operations irf the  province of. Mantazas and Havana  greatly exasperated the military authorities for some years. For several months  there was a standing reward of $500  for his head^ During the., latter part of  July he sent word to the authorities that  he would surrender for ?500 provided he  would be allowed to leave the -island.  On receipt of this the reward was  doubled. Finally the bandit's mother  asked acting governor Scott to promise  to pardon him if he surrendered.' The  reply was that if .he gave himself up he  would be tried as a bandit and if he  remained at large he would be hunted  down and killed if necessary.

Delay   in - Rebuilding Trestle on Nakusp and  Slocan Branch.  3*  ' li  structure, which can be" built without  any stoppage of the plant whatever.  During the high, water in June a. large  boom of logs which were held by a sawmill company a few hundred yards abovo  the dam gave way and about one million  feet of logs were thrown against the dam  in a solid mass and at a time when the  water was at extreme flood without inflicting the sjightest damage to the  structure. This unexpected test of the  dam fully demonstrated its stability.  The water is conveyed from the dam  to tho power house, first by an open  cut 225 feet long (from this point a  tunnel 12x14 feet is driven for a distance of 410 feet through solid rock),  thence by another open channel for a  distance of 500 feet (at this point a concrete bulkhead will be placed and the  water conveyed in a circular flume of  12 feet diameter to the power house).  Thirty-five thousand yards of rock have'  been excavated for the open cuts alone.  The areas of the open cuts and tunnel  are so large that no appreciable loss of  head will occur and the water will enter the flume with a head equal to the  level of the water in the' dam. The  power house will be placed on a natural bay at the foot of the falls, where an  extensive site has been excavated out  of the solid rock. About 7000 yards of  rock have been removed for this purpose. The turbines are of the horizontal type, two wheels in each case,  and the generators are of the three-  phase alternating type and step-up  transformers are used to raise the current for transmission. The electrical  machinery is of the latest and most up-  to-date ��� construction of the Westing-  house company and the power house a  substantial fire-proof structure of brick  and stone, being, according to tiie engineer's plans, 200 feet long by '15 feet  wide. A right of way has been cleared  from Cascade to Phoenix in Green-  camp, a distance of 21 miles. The clearing is 132 feet wide. All brush and timber has boen removed. Two separate  duplicate lines arc boing constructed of  tho most up to date description, and  every posibio means will bo used to ensure a continuous current boing maintained. The heaviest wire will bo used  to ensure this. Tho main distributing  station will ob a fire-proof structure of  brick and stone. Poles are now boing  distributed along the right of way between.

NEW YORK, August 23���Owing to a  ���misunderstanding of orders, the cup  challenger, Shamrock II, did not have a  trial spin outside Sandy Hook today.  The original program was' to have the  yacht towed to Sandy .Hook from, her  anchorage off Stapleton," S. I., starting at  11 o'clock and then to have her go out  on a trial spin over the America's cup  course, but the forenoon was spent in  putting battens in the new mainsail and  making some alterations and repairs to  the yacht's rigging. It was noon before this was finished, so that the Shamrock was not ready to" start until after  the men had their dinner. At 1 o'clock  the crew began hoisting the mainsail,  captain vSycamore understanding that  the yacht was to sail'out-to' Sandy Hook  But sir Thomas Lipton and Mr. Watson  : after a conference decided that it "would  be better to tow the yacht with' the Erin  on account of the strong breeze prevailing, which if the yacht sailed would  make it a long, tedious beat down the  main ship channelto Sandy Hook. Accordingly at2 p. m. the-tow began. At  3 p.-m. it was decided not to sail over  any stated course and the boat returned  , to her moorings. She showed.wonderful  ability to work to windward under that  Jsbort sail... The.Asociated - Press-, tug  Unique towed her half "a mile until she  was made fast to her buoy at 4 p. "m. Sir  Thomas will see the Columbia-Constitution race off Oyster bay tomorrow. The  Shamrook will not sail again until Monday, but she will get out every day after  that except Sundays, leaving her moorings at 10 o'clock to take trial spins over  tlie America's cup course.   ���'  Criminal Statistics.

FRANCE IS IN A QUANDARY  Over the .Turkish Affair.  CONSTANTINOPLE, August 23.���The  French ambassador, M. Constans, has  today sent a letter to the sultan personally informing him that he would leave  Constantinople with the entire stall of  the embassy if the matters in dispute  were not settled immediately. The letter has the nature of an ultimatum. It  accords.the sultan the briefest time in  wliich  to comply  with  the demands.  PARIS, August 23.���While the oilicials  of the foreign oflice decline to confirm  or deny the dispatch of the Associated  Press from Constantinople announcing  that the French ambassador has sent  the sultan a letter which has the nature  of an ultimatum they admit having received a telegram from M. Constans  which has been laid before the council now sitting at the Elysee palace.  Only three ministers were present. The  premier, M. Waldeck Rosseau. the minister of agriculture, M, Dupuy, and the  minister of public works, M. Baudin, are  absent from Paris. Tlie correspondent  learns that M. Constans has been given  a free hand. Any step he finds proper  to take will bo fully indorsed. The foreign minister, M. Delcasse, if he deems  it necessary, will withdraw the French  embassy from Constantinople, and  Munir Bey, the Turkish ambassador,  who is now in Switzerland, will be notified not to return to Par,is, in whicli  case Munir Bey probably will withdraw  the legation to Berlin, as he is also accredited as minister to Switzerland.  In regard to the Turkish situation it  is stated that no naval demonstration  is yet contemplated, but the sultan will  probably be seriously inconvenienced by  the closure of the Turkish embassy here,  which is the center of the espionage  maintained to watch the numerous  young Turks and other disaffected Ottoman subjects and voluntary exiles  who make their headquarters in Paris  and who will have a'Trec hand if diplomatic relations between Franco and  Turkey are completely broken off. It  has been suggested that the French government issue riders for the bourse to  cease dealing in Turkish securities. But  it is not likely that this step will be  taken, as it would only injure the  French bondholders. The entire Turkish group fell on the bourse today, in  some cases going down 10 to 12 francs.  The Canadian Pacific Railway Company is meeting with better sucecss on ���  the Kootenay branches in its fight with  the, striking trackmen than it is. on the  main line of the Pacific division.   More,  men have gone back to work  on' the.  Kootenay branches than on any section  on the main line of the Pacific division  and the main line trackmen inconsequence are not inclined to acceptv'the  statement of the,railway officials with  respect   to   the   number   of   men   who '  have returned to work on' the Kootenay  branches.   From Medicine Hat.through  to the Landing and in fact upon all the    ���  branches   east   of   Kootenay   lake   the  railway officials assert that the strike  of the trackmen is nowipractically.lifted  and the road is now well covered'with  men putting the  track in shape.   .The   '  greatest difficulty has been met with in  respect to the bridgemen!   Some of ..them,  have gone back to work but a" number  of them still remain out and there ap-_,  pears' to be no immediate prospect'!of~  their  faling  into   line.    The  action of "  thev bridgemen   has*  naturally  had   the ���  effect of delaying the replacing' of the  long trestle which was  burned out on  the Nakusp  &  Slocan    branch.      This  trestle is about 560 feet long with an  average height of about forty feet, so  that it is no small job for the company -i  to tackle with  the differences existing ,  with   the  bridgemen.    Work  upon\ it, -^  however,  is reported to  be well  under.*'.  way,-there being a foreman and ten men". Z  at work upon it.   Eighteen cars of tim-1 ���-.  ber have been delivered on the ground. V~  The foundations have been set foi*. about'-  twenty   bents   and   the   frames   are   up,   ,,  for a number.    It is expected that the  trestle   will   be   complete'd   in   about   a~,  week or ten clays.                >                    i   ,  The  breach   between  the  representatives of the other railway brotherhoods  and president Wilson of the Trackmen's  union appears to be wideniiigand-there   <-  i snow very litle chance of concerted; ac-  . tion so long as president Wilson is per-  ' niitted to direct'the-affairs of-the strike^-  The members of, the conciliation",' committee,   composed   of   members   of   the  various   other    railway      organizations  have seen fit to publish the terms    of  settlement which  they arrived at ������.with  the company and  which were rejected  as unfair to the .tracumeu by president  Wilson.    This they claim was necessitated  by  reason  of the  misrepresentations of the terms of settlement by president Wilson.    From  this statement it  appears that the break with  president  Wilson  occurred   over  the  measure  of  recognition which the railway company  was prepared to concede to the track-'  mens' organization, rather than over the  question of wages.   From tho statemejSit  issued by the conciliation committee it  appears that the railway committee was  prepared   to  recognize    the   trackmen's  union provided it was restricted to the  foremen  and  first and second  men  on  the gangs of one year's service with the ,  company, and provided that the schedule. and^conditions^o.fJhe-J*irganizatloH   were not made to apply to the other men  employed on the sections or on extra  gangs.  The basis of settlement also provided  that the company should reinstate all  the men in their old positions provided  such positions had not been filled under promise of permanency during the  absence of the strikers, but in such cases  the company agreed to give the remaining men the preference in filling other  similar positions as near to their old  location as possible. This clause was to  apply to all save those who had been  guilty of acts of violence.  In connection with the above the conciliation comniittco secured from vice  president McNicoll an assurance that  should the question of the responsibility or workability of the trackmen's organization be questioned by the company, and the company be unable to  agree on that head with the trackmen,  that the parties to the dispute should  leave the question at issue to the decision of the five leading brotherhoods of  the road, and any other questions growing out of the terms of the settlement  were to be similarly referred.  These terms were recommended to the  trackmen by the conciliation committee  and although they were favorably received by a number of the trackmen's committee president Wilson exerted sufficient influence to bring about their rejection.  Lehigh Valley Train Wrecked.  ITHACA, N. Y., August 23.���The Le-.  high Valley passenger train which left  Auburn for Ithaca at 4:50 p. m. on the  Cayuga Lake division was wrecked  north of Kingsferry, 20 mies north of  Ithaca, at 8 o'clock tonight. The engine  ran into the lake. Fireman Fitzgerald  of this city is missing and engineer La-  franco, also of this city, was injured.  The track where the accident occurred  runs near the edge of Cayuga lake. A.  heavy rainstorm loosened a large boulder which rolled down on the track just  beyond a sharp curve. Neither engtneer  nor fireman had time to jump, but stuck  to their posts as the engine plunged into*  the lake. It is thought fireman Fitzgerald is pinned beneath the locomotive'.  Engineer Lafrance had his arm badly-  crushed, but managed to get clear of  t.ho wreckage and swam ashore. Passengers were badly shaken up,, but none  seriously injured,.  IM  mmu  �� 2?

Butto, Montana, and Virginia  City, Nevada, two of the greatest mining camps that th'e* world has had, have  never had a strike. But at both places  the miner's union is given full recognition. If like recognition was given the  miner's union at Rossland, is it likely  the result would be any different from  what it has been at Butte and Virginia?  There seems to be differences of opinion as to the eillcacy of compulsory arbitration. Reports from New Zealand are  conflicting. But, then, no radical change  was ever made that did not meet with the  disapproval of a portion of.tho people.  There are people in Nelson who would,  if they could, have British Columbia  again made a Crown Colony. Thesa  people believe that the crown colony  system of, government is better than  representative government; but somehow the majority of the people do not  think so. The majority of the people In  New Zealand believe that, compulsory  arbitration will prevent strikes. The  present laws may not be perfect, and  their defects are being magnified by the  reactionists. Few laws are perfect when  first enacted. It is only by trial that  the deletes are found, and this is probably true of; the compulsory arbitration  laws of New Zealand.  f��^'fy^teag^^a-ti^^��ft;a3'��  ..-x_;;?zi&r__''?SA  -^   f  NELSON LODGE, NO. 23., A.

In every other mining camp  in Kootenay, there is the minimum of  friction, and there is no good reason  why like conditions should not prevail  at Rossland. The ore at Rossland is of  higher grade than that mined in the  Boundary; the mines havo competitive  railways over which to market their  output; supplies are as cheap as in any  sections of the country; and there must  be advantages in working mines where  employees can have tlieir own homes in  the neighborhood of good schools. Sure- i  With every province in the Dominion  except British Columbia represented in  the Laurier government, is it any great  wonder that the interests of British Columbia are overlooked? The minister of  the interior, who is a member of parliament from Manitoba, is supposed to look  after the interests of the West, but the  Rocky Mountains Is a wall that he is  not big enough to see over. British Columbia will continue to be oyer-taxeel  and overlooked just as long as she is  without a seat at Mr. Laurier's council  table. Anyone would be better than no  one. Even the member for Vancouver  would be tolerated.  The Ymir Liberal Association is a versatile organization.,, One day it is used  to boost the Liberal party, and tho next  day is donig its level best to further the  alms of the Laborites. Its latest is a  boost for Doctor Sinclair of Rossland  who Js a Candidate for the appointment  of senator from a province In which he  has been hardly long enough to warm  a chair.  R. C. Clute of Toronto, chairman of  the royal commission appointed to investigate the Chinese and Japanese immigration question, is coming in for a  good deal of abuse from newspapers,  like the Rossland Miner, because he has  had the hardihood to say that Samuel  Robins of Nanaimo is a worthy citizen of Britis'h Columbia;  If the Rossland Miner's Union wins  out in the, fight against Bernard McDonald and War Eagle Kirby, ex-governor Charles H. Mackintosh will once  more be Duke of Rossland. Ho has ;di-  rected the fight from the Rossland end  of the line/while others managed it in  London.

Quito recently some members of parliament have been doing duty on one of  the men-of-war   of the   Mediterranean  squadron to learn, by actual experience,  whether the jackies are rightly and sufficiently  nourished.    They  suffered   the  trial of eating just what the men  eat'  and performing duty with the men in  order to be able to report to the nation,  whether the sailors who grumbled knew  their  own  feelings  about the matter.  The report unofficially stated that the  time from noon of one clay to early the  ��� next morning was too long a time for  the men to go without any food "except  a hearty tea" at four or five in the evening.   The members of parliament,   who  were in the habit of taking a gluttonous  meal at seven or eight or nine o'clock  in the.evening'and :wlio lia'd habituated  their stomachs to expect a stuffing.between  those  hours    found    themselves  "faint"  from want "of the accustomed  stuffing when they attempted to subsist  on the sailor's rations. .-->������'  During the past year some experiments have been carried out in Venice  which prove that the present ration of  the British sailor, is about three times  as much as his body can profitably digest, and that most,of the ills he suffers  come from the Strain upon his body  caused by its efforts to get rid of the  superflous two-thirds of "grub." The results of these experiments show that  Ijiiigi Cornaro was right in his assertion  that twelve dunces of solid food per day  like that commonly consumed Vis as  much as ��� the average man can eat and  remain perfectly healthy, i This7 quantity is about one-third of the usual ration given to soldiers and sailors.  During the time that the investigating  memebrs of parliament were making preparations to undergo a trial of sailor's  rations, a report of the Venice experir  ments was made tothe British war office  by an English physician and also a request to continue the experiments with  a body of soldiers, if a number of them  could be induced to submit themselves  to experiment. The physician-reported  that the experiments were conclusive  as far as Venetian subjects were.con-  cerned, and that they showed a way by  which one-third the food comonly^given  as rations could be made to completely  nourish the body, completely satisfy the  appetite, and, at the same time, give  to the eater an amount of good taste  for his gratification that he had not previously enjoyed. The physican also offered to demonstrate that the excess  quantity of food usually taken by the  average person provoked more or less  strain upon the whole human organism  under the most favorable conditions.,  frequently caused a predisposition of  disease, and nearly always resulted in  putrid decomposition of the various excreta. A commission of army physicians reports that the probable cause  of enteric fever among the South African troops was'putrid excreta.  After two or more months of consider-  _ation,_tHe-war^office.rei*lied-to^th.e^Vene^  tian physician that his report was in  spirit of cheerfulness, religion and good  sense, as are the natural concomitants  of temperance and sobriety.' He died at  the age of 98 (100?). His case is an evidence that those who have suffered the-  results of sensual excesses may, not only  with safety, but witli advantage, adopt  the opposite extreme of ascetic abstinence; but it does not show that persons  with unimpaired constitutions, living  regular lives, would be the better for it.  A proof of this is the rarity with wliich  his system has been persisted in, compared with the frequency with which  his books have been read.' ^  "The first three of these treatises were  published during his life, .(Padua, 1558),  and all four have since been frequently  reprinted in the original and other languages. An English translation of the  *Sure Method' has gone through more  than thirty editions."     7  Cornaro assures his readers that he  never knew what it was to enjoy life  and food until he adopted his regimen  of temperance.   He had spent a fortune  ' in high living, so that he certainly knew  the  difference.    But by recent experi-���  ments it has been discovered how Luigi  got much  enjoyment out of his small  rations.    The recent experiments referred tp have consisted of nutrition tests,  made  upon subjects  of dill'e'rent charr  acteristics  and  various   habits  of  life,  and the results obtained have been-compared with the ordinary experiences of  peoples of different countries arid ^various occupations.    Individuals differ ��� so  greatly and Nature is so deliberate in  her methods, thatthe* experiments can  not be hurried to a conclusion.  -.... Cornaro reached  a  minimum    of  12  ���ounces of solid food a day���only about a  fourth of which he had been consuming.  Later in life he took even less.   He does  riot tell us S0j but it is natural to infer  that he did riot bolt, his food. He chewed  and sipped it as long as possible, to get  .-all;the taste out of it. In doing- so, he conformed' to  Nature's requirements,  and  thoroughly insalivated his food.  Try it yourself. Select 12-ounces of  the sort of food that pleases yotu most,  but in simple variety. Divide it into  four rations a day, and of three ounces  .each, as Cornaro.did; and fix the feeding time to suit your fancy. You will  probably sit- down to eat your" three  ounces of favorite, fare with an appetite  born of waiting and expectation. You  will! linger over each morsel so as to  prolong the pleasure of it. At first you  may' not be satisfied with your three  ounces, for your organism is habituated  to stuffing, but in ten minutes after the  three-ounce meal you will notice that  appetite is more perfectly satisfied than  usual.    .':���  That is what happened " to Cornaro,  Without doubt, but he failed to dwell  upon this feature of his experience, and  lence it is that so few have persisted  in practicing his advice.- It was the  key to his secret which he forgot to  leave behind.

It  was  by  suspended  cable  from the hills at each end of the lake  oyer which a traction engine drug huge  scoops.   The fish were taken out during  tne cleaning-process and then replaced,  and now the lake is bounteously stocked  with carp, eels, pike, perch, trout, roach  and dace.    Since it has  been cleaned  James Clifford, an old Oxford fisherman,  made the banner catch by landing a 37-  pound pike.   The next stop is made on  the edge of, the forest that has made  Blenheim such a rich estate.    Not one  tree can be cut down by any of the  Marlboroughs, such is the law, and so  it is that nature has had her way in  this wilderness of her own creation for  hundreds   of   years;   and   by  the  same  token it" has  followed  that successive  dukes, though reputed wondrously rich,  have had their resources badly crippled  because they could not carry out their  personal desires and convert this verdant growth into valuable lumber. The  coach passes through  this forest and  then returns  to the Kings Arms inn  in Woodstock before returning to Oxford.    The simple townsfolk of Woodstock adore, the graceful young duchess,  who takes a womanly interest in their  quiet lives and they look in wonder upon:  the merriment now rife in stately Blenheim.   About this time of the year the  duke entertains the Oxford Cricket club,  interesting to us because so many representative Americans are there. 'There  is still anothr point of interest which  tourists to Blenheim should not neglect.   One mile and a half distant from  Woodstock   is   Wotton,   a  typical.English   village,   the   most   secluded   and  quaint  in   its   simplicity  of  any  little  hamlet in England.   Here is one of the  largest old country rectories in all England, ��� with shaded avenues, where the  nightingales sing and < other rare birds  build their nests.,' The old church, old  mill, old trout stream and old inli are  ���well worth visiting.   The inn stands at  the junction of four cross-roads, utterly secluded, no house near, and still this  quiet place is not without its tragedy.  Fifty yards from the house is a green  cross, cut out'in the turf, kept watered  and trimmed, marking the spot where a  villager committed  suicide because he  could not meet a small debt;���San Francisco Examiner. ���- ������ �����  to  to  Established In Nelson 1890.

These men were noted for their prodigious strength and endurance. They cul-  tr'vaeu the one-meal-a-day habit. Hi:-  tory shows that abstemiousness has always been the habit of peoples that  have accomplished much, and that with  increasing gluttony and luxury nations  degenerate, as England is degenerating  now, as rapidly as gluttony can accomplish the decline.  It is to bo presumed that the reader  has heard of Luigi Cornaro. He flourished between 1467 and 15GC. and hence  rounded out a century of life. He was  contemporary with Titian, who was also  a Venetian, and there is reason to believe that the great painter owed his  100 years' somewhat to the influence of  Cornaro, for they were friends as well  as fellow-citizens. ��� Here follows the  "Encyclopaedia Britannica" account of  his life:  "Cornaro.'Luigi (1467-1566), a Venetian nobleman, famous for his treatise  on a temperate life. From some dishonesty on the part of his relatives he was  deprived of his rank, and induced to retire, to I^adua, where' he acquired the experience in regard to food and regimen  which he detailed in his works. In his  youth he lived freely, but after a severe  illness at the age of 40, he began- under  medical advice gradually to reducehis  diet. For some time he restricted himself to a daily allowance of 12 ounces  of solid, food and .14 ounces of wine;  later in life he reduced still further his  bill of fare and he found he could support his life and strength with no more  solid meat than an egg a day. So much  habituated did he become to this simple  diet, that when he was about 70 years  of age the addition by way of experiment of .two ounces a day had nearly  proved fatal. At the age of 83 he wrote  his treatise on "The Sure and Certain  Method of Attaining a Long and Healthful Life,' and this work was followed by  three.others on the same subject, composed at the ages of S6, 91 and 95 respectively. 'They are written,' says Ad-  'disdn, (Spectator, No. 195), with such aj  FOIBLES OF THE WEALTHY  Marlborough's  Extravagance.

And all this  by one man for his own special pleasure and, mayhap, occasionally, for the  iniusement of a few- friends. Of course  ���"his savors most strongly of American  ������old and the spirit of lofty and spectacular extravagances that has grown up  in this country with the fabulous fortunes of the last decade, but it was only  .in incident in an English nobleman's  ocheme of improvements in his country  home, for ever since Consuelo Vanderbilt married the duke of Marlborough  Blenheim palace and its surroundings  have been of undiminished interest to  Americans, and it was simply to make  it even more attractive to his wife's  country folk that the duke lavished so  much money on improvements.  Of course everybody knows Blenheim  palace is in Woodstock, the place made,  famous by Sir Walter Scott's novel,  'Woodstock," wherein the untimely fate  of Fair Rosamond is so graphically described. It was a favorite estate of King  Henry II, and there jealous Queen Eleanor instigated the pitiful suicide of her  rival, Fair Rosamond,-in 1177. Woodstock is old and sleepy, but Blenheim  is still there with the ninth duke of  Marlborough in possession, and "Our  Consuelo" its mistress. So once more  old Woodstock comes to the front, and  with American progressiveness claims  its share of modern notice. A coach and  four horses, driver and truiii'peter clad  in scarlet, comes rattling into quiet  Woodstock every clay, the sound of its  horn waking the echoes in the sleepy  old town. The coach is a new thing  and is driven between Oxford to Woodstock through the historic park and  ���*Tounds of Blenheim solely for the benefit of sightseers. The park itself, comprising 2,700 acres, is inclosed by a  continuous wall 15 miles around. The  route of the coach is over eight miles  long and through the most delightful  sections of the park. Up the long hills  the horses are driven at a swift pace  and sometimes, too, through such narrow glades that one trembles. The horn  rouses into flight tens of thousands of  rabbits, beautiful, soft, brown creatures,  whose whito spotted skin dot the grass  like moon daisies. These rabbits are  famous, through England. The first stop  is made at the lake, which, as before sta-.  TELEGRAMS IN BRIEF FORM  From Various-Sources.---.

During the past few days there has  been an- unusual waste of water and  as a measure of protection the mayor  hfts decided tp cut off the water service  through wfiiph waste is reported- A�� ^  spection of the services will be m**4e ��pr  day and consumers should govern them'r  selves accordingly. In addition to the  waste which is complained of there is  a heavy <1arln upon the supply from the  local smelter and the o, p, h, and. to  meet this the city engineer has deemed  it necessary to taite in another small  stream of water which is expected to  add a few thousand gallons to the supply.  P. J. Nichols, who has the lease on the  Fern mine, is likely to prove that the  Fern is all right when properly handled.  He has started the mill on tho old  dumps which were piled up under tht)  former management and litis put  through 150 tons of sorted ore so far,  The ore that he is treating from the  dump has a value of about ?7.E>0 per ton,  of which Nichols is saving about one-  half on the mill plates, the rest being  in ,��he tailings. The sorting and the  milling of this ore costs about ?1 per  ton. and as there are considerable quan-  CONTRACTS HAVE BEEN LET  On British Columbia Southern.  The bulk of the work on the provincial end of the British Columbia Southern railway was jet on" Thursday and  the men who_ took, the contracts upon it  are now free to see Svhether they can  .make money on the; prices fixed or go  broke/While tlie. prices at which the  work was let are said to be low there  is one feature in connection with the  work which commends itself to everyone and this is'that no attempt will be  made to build the road out of the profits  from the sale of supplies to the men  employed upon the grade.   As is usual  in such cases the contractors expect to  sell the bulk of the goods consumed upon the  work,  but this time the retail  price of supplies is fixed at ten per cent  advance upon the first cost to the contractors, and the sub-contractor's have  also the option if they see fit of purchasing their supplies where they like. From  the sub-contractor's point of view thin  is a marked advantage over the system  which obtained on every other piece of  work which has.been carried out in the  district, where for  the most, part the  sub-contractors' broke, perhaps  a little  better than  even.;,on. the   .contractor's  prices, and went- broke  on  the  prices  charged for stores. ; In. addition to the  very fair arrangement which has been  made with respect to the purchase of  stores there is the variety, whicli has  been made in the classifications of the  work.    Instead of the arbitrary classification of rock and earth the sub-contractors on this piece of work are given  six    classifications:    Earth,    cemented  gravel, loose rock, gumbo, hard pan, and  solid rock.  The first six miles of the work has  been given to. Twohey. Brothers of Spokane. They have the first work on this  side of the international line.
