YORK,, November 3.���Danny  Maher, the little American jockey, is  now the premier rider of the world. Ho  has been engaged to ride the horses in  charge of tiainers T. Blackwell and  Richard Marsh- at the combined salary  -of-$25.000-for~riext=i"season���theThighest  amount ever paid, any jockey in the  world for a year's work in the saddle.  Richard Marsh trains for king Edward.  The engagement of Maher as jockey is,  regarded as a tactful way of expressing  the king's opinion that he is not prejudiced against American riders. Maher  says on the subject of his engagement  to ride king Edward's horses: "My flrst  engagement next season is for T. Black-  well's stable,' Mr. Marsh to have second  call on my services. Marsh trains for  king-Edward, and my retainer of course  includes riding*lher King's horses. This  has been the most successful season I  have ever had. I have ridden 85 winners  this year. I rode threo today. I think  tho English tracks are uetter than the  American course. Tho former are much  better to ride on. I have been treated  very well. I will go to my home in Hartford, Connecticut, in December, but will  leturn hero in March. It is pos-sible the  king's horses may be all leased next  year to the duke of Devonshire, in which  event I shall not ilde in the king's  colors."         Inhuman Female Nurses.  CHICAGO, November 3.���Two female  nurses at the asylum for the insane at  Dunning. Illinois, will on Monday be  formally chaiged by secretary Folllot of  the Civil Service Reform Association  with having caused the death of two pa-  .tients in the asylum, Kate^Neddo and  Kate Kurdowski. The charge will oe  made that the nurses deliberately withheld'food from the patients, sometimes  giving them nothing at all in several  days. Medicines provided for the patients  were not administered to them. The  motive to be assigned in the charges is  that the patients were especially obnoxious to the niirges and that their course,  was 'prompted by a desire to so weaken ���  them that thoy would become ill aud bo  sent to another ward,: thus relieving tha  nurses of the care of them. It will bo  charged that this course was .carried too  far and that, the* patients' death resulted, from it :'.* The -woipen died early  in Septembei- and .the causes of death  were given in the death certificates as  inanition in one case and scurvy In the  other.'

Its intentions  In decorating were perhaps better than  the   results   accomplished.   The   work  was   besun   at   the   last   moment  and  barely completed  in time.  There were  Venetian  masts  along the  upper  portion of the route and one arch with a  showy banner. Picadilly wa3 left to its  own   devices   and   some   householders  were thrifty and used purple and white  hangings left over from February. St  James slreet was the handsomest, with  an  abundance of  wreaths and flowers  between   the   Venetian   masts   and   an  enormous    blue    banner    with    words  "Welcome Home" as the most conspicuous    device.

NEW YORK, November S.v-Comment-  ing on the recent severe loss by the  British in South \frica, I. N. Ford, correspondent of.the New York.Tribune, In  a dispatch from London says: Reflecting men who follow the course, of military operations in South Africa aro bewildered by general Botha's latest exploit. They had'been convinced by lord  Kitchener's dispatches that Botha had  narrowly escaped capture and was somewhat east of Ermelo with only 300  burghers, and that a series of British  columns had come into line find Were in  jcommunicatlon with one another for tho  purposo of surrounding and: running  him: to earth, guddeitiy. they, are * con-  th a terrible casualty Hat of  over 222 killed and wounded, Including  many officers, aud with practical evidence that Botha with 1000 men succeeded in surprising the rear guard of a'  British force, rushing the guns and making so determined an attack that a relieving column was necessary. Tho  fighting was real and desperate on both  sides and the Boers, after Inflicting  heavy losses, retired either with or  withcut the captured guns. Details of  this engagement tend to - discredit, the  conclusion of a military'^journal that  general Bctha had ceased to be of much  account for the, present.1 This remarkable episode of the war in the east?rn  Transvaal directs attention to the question,of guns as an impediment for mobile columns. The Boers are apparently  flghting without artillery, whereas every  one of the sixty-seven British columns  is supplied with guns and these-invariably ,keep them back and* restrict their  operations. Military critics are beginning to blurt outtthe truth that guns are  useless when the Boers spriug out of the  darkness, mist or \eldt smoke and that  ,it is not worth while to trek,about the  country with them Keen, sportsmen  are asking whether the guns are not as  useless in operations against hands of  guerillas as motor cars would be'for'a  fox hunt across the country.

MONTREAL, November 3. ��� Prince  Ranjit of Beloochistan, as he describes  himself, who recently mysteriously appeared in London, the British Indian office confessing its inability to identify  him, arrived here this afternoon on the  Beaver line steamship Lake Simcoe. Tha  princo is accompanied by a suite of  ��� thirty-two Jnd'i'ans,; including a band and  a dancing girl. Hundreds of people  crowded the-wharf to witness the lauding of.the prince. Spectacularly he proved a disappointment. . He is: a young  man, slight in build,: his skin bronzed  rather, than black in color, and he wears  a heavy black beard.X He speaks English fluently;. When he came dowii the  gangway he was attired :iiv well-made  English clothing,:-brown pointed shoes  and a";'brown fedora hat' During the  passage,: however, he wore loose silken  robes of a rich golden hue. The passengers on the Lake Simcoe did not see  much of* him during the voyage, as he  suffered from sea' sickness and made  only one appearance in the saloon. That  was on the evening of the usual concert,  which he attended, subscribing ?10 to the  receipts, which go towards the support,  of sailors' homes and orphanages. .The  prince's dancing girl was on the concert programme, contributing two songs  in her native tongue most acceptably  and also an Oriental dance which did  not meet with the same general enthusiasm. 'During the passage the Oriental  potentate's staff looked entirely after  his comfort. His own cooks prepared  his meals and his' gorgeously attired  staff looked after his every want with  an assiduity which quite took away th-a  I breath .of the officers and: passengers.

Although it had nothing whatever to
do with the passage of the eight-hour
law, The Tribune has been boycotted by
the mine managers   and  mine  owners
ever since the day that law was put in
operation.   The Tribune contended that
the law should be given a fair trial, seeing that it was a law.   For daring to
have that opinion, it incurred the bitter
and   implacable   enmity   of rthe   Mine
Owners' Association.   Last summer tho
retail-store  cleikg  in Nelson  began a
movement to make Thursday afternoon
a mid week holiday.   Tin Tribune opposed the movement, as one that was not
warranted by either the necessities of
the clerks or the conditions that were
making Nelson a trade center for southeastern British   Columbia.   Tho  reiail-
storo clerks and their friends boycotted
The Ti ibune, aiid the boycott is is just

of tbe Mine Owners' Association. These
boycotts aro not confined to Tho Tribune, but are extended io embraco every
business man who patronizes The Trib- I had a Bite for a power station. Tho

West Kootenay  Power &   Light  Com-1
pany, Limited, of Rossland use the same
arguments to bolster up a proposed,deal
between the city 'and the Rossland company, it is time for the people of Nelson
to ask' themselves the question:   "jg it
possible that the interest?, of Uio city are
being watched as they should be?"  The
manager of the Rossland company says
the City of Nelson would be unable to
raise enough money to put in a power
plant on Kootenay river, even if the city
made Nelson what it is-today had^ faith

prosperity of the town,\in a greaf meas-

were satisfied with the pay theyVeceived,
and 'the smelter management were satisfied with the i work done by the men,
there should havebeen no friction;   But
there was, and the result was a strike.
, which is still on.   One of the results of
the strike is a determination on'the part
of the-smelter management to boycott
the. town.   They  intend .to  make  the
smelter ground" a community by itself,
a community entirely, independent of the

, ' NORTHPORT,,November 2--William
Nelson.of the  Northport'hotel  makes
the following statement in reply to au
' interview with Ii.H.Carey,
;lished in the  Spokane  Spokesman-Review:      ' '
"  lit, 'the Review of October 25th, I noticed^ puriiorteii iriterVJtew with D. it.
Carey, attorney for tlie Northport Smel-
,ting Company, tfiat ought not .to go .unanswered,' because of the deception and
■ fraud therein contained arid, sought to
be imposed on a confiding public., r'As I
'am somewhat conversant "with certain
'things therein 'alluded 'to, and  which
I know to be untrue, 1'tleom }t iny du*y
to state tho fact's and  let the  outside
world judge for themselves.
,    The'whole tenor of'Mr.' Carfey's article
is to the effect that the smelting com-
'pany, some weeks after the strike was
'inaugurated, notified   the   citizens   and
authorities of thn city of Northport, that
,if they did not give them ahd their'em-
plo;yee& protection, they would build a
town of their own about the smelter and
,run their  own  stores, 'hotels,   lodging
houses, saloons, etc., for protection and
in retaliation.
He would have the public understand
that the desiied protection was not accorded them, and hence the reason of
their 'building and Starting lodging
houses, restaurants, and stores. He also
makes it appear that if the desired protection had been given, rio stores would
have been started. '

whon the strike was commenced, and
ever   since,   they   have   honestly   and
industriously striven to preserve peace'
and accord protection to'everyone; that

have an excellent record for the way
they have conducted themselves and tho

1 To show that Mr. Carey is mistaken,
when he,alleges the cause of coldness
between ihe 'smelter management, and
the business men lo have arisen from the
failure of the city authorities to give
them protection, and that the new town
was built for that reason, I wish lo say,
that on or about the 27th day of May,
1901, only a very few  days  after the
strike was inaugurated, I was called into
the private oflice of Bela Kadish, at the
smelter, and by him shown the plans
and draughts of residence buildings, of

lodging houses, of hotel buildings, and
a profile or plat of the streets of his proposed town. He also showed me four
buildings, which were at that, time nearly completed, and which were shown on
the plans, evidencing, to my mind, that
theso plans -were drawn at least mouths
before. And, furthermore, Mr. Kadish
at this same time, offered me the hotel
sho-m by the plans for two years freo
of rent if I would take charge as soon
as tho builcjgng was completed. I gave
him to understand that I wished to run
asked him if a license could be secured,
and whether he would have any objection to running a saloon. He consented
and promised to get me a license by November of this year. For these reasons,
I know that the smelting company intended to build the new town long before
the strike was started.' I am satisfied
that when Mr. Carey made his statement
he was cognisant of all these facts, and
therefore, for purposes of his own, was
knowingly attempting to deceive the
At any Wmo, when thought best, I will
make an affidavit concerning the above-
mentioned facts. Mr. Kadish told me
further, that if the hotel keepers and
business men would stand in with him
that he would starve the rtrikers out
ln a week or two.
I will say that I have not heard of a
single union man going back to work,
and believe from what I heai and ste
that they are in condition to continue
the strike for their rights indefinitely.
They are a well-behaved lot of men and
seem to have great confidence cf ultimately obtaining a complete victory.

Ono will not soon forget those days.

Day by day the frames grow gaunt and
the faces full ot wonder that looked upon

came --pestilence, and at last dospair.
1 Stricken for a fault unknown, they folded their blankets about their bowed
heads, and with the simple stoicism of
their raco awaited deatn. There svas
little wailing or complaint. Tho low-
murmured "Ah Dios' ' could scarce be
heard beyond tho threshold, but none the
less was the grief Intonse. Ard the sun
beat down upon the fields, and the dust
grew deeper upon tho loads, and the
world melted farther and farther away,

of the church lay,°and where the greac
pictuic of the Christ hung sheltered iri
its golden frame; and it lit ^the" frame
with a two,-fold glorV and paused—lingering. Then flashed a thought uron
fathei Anselmo and a revelation like a
blow. Gold foi the corn; here it was,
hero m this frame. But how' To rob
the church, the Christ? God forbid thi
saciilege And then came a still, small
\oice: "The son of Man hath not
where to lay his head." What need had
he then of a golden fiame' He who had
scorned the riches of the world. Still
father Anselmo sluank in honor. And
The light, traveling, awoke the face of
the Christ, the face glorified with its ten-
'der eyes, and theie hoveyed there a
smile, which seemed to* say: "Fear not.
This do in my name " -   ,
And the sun.rose higher till the whole
chapel was full of light, and for the flrst
time in many weary weeks a mrd s son.j
broke upon the moi ning air. Then father
Anselmo "crossed himself, and, rising
leverently, approached tne .great .aty/ir,
and he took the golden frame which for
so many years had been the awe and
wonder of the people, and he left tho
picture of the Christ upon the' altar,"
thinking it well that this hopeless son of
man should be within God's hands And
father Anselmo passed out canying the
frame beneath his robe, and before many
days the suffering ol the patient people
wore lelieved. But it is a question which
is discussed even to.this day, whether
the holy father committed sacrilege in
thus lobbing the church. Somo say it
was a miracle. B. V. GREEN.

Boer Women Fugitives.
The farms were all deserted, the Boers
having fled into the mountains with
their families, who lived in caves and
wagons. Almost every kloof and cave
contained hidden furniture and supplies
ot gram. Some twenty-five women and
children were found in one cave high up
a mountain, tho Boers having hauled
their up by moans of ropes. Most of
the women were at first bitter, and when
asked why they had fled from their
homes on tho appioach of tho Biitish
stated that the Boers had told them
most frightful stones of how women and
children wci'p ill-treated by the British.
After being a few days in our hands the
wromen appeared quite happy, and
offered to bake bread for the ofllceis. _

Dropped Dead on tho Street.
TORONTO,- November , 3. — James
Fitzgerald of, Bathurst street, until'recently a merchant of Millbrook, while
out walking last night fell dead oh the
street:Death' -was due to; paJ-alyBia.*;. 'VZ
lord   Pauncefote   m, London   not   omj
word    officially h authoiizecl   has  -been
given out"-here with,xeftience  io  the
canal.   The   -.ditorial   comments .which
have  appeared in  England  have";been
entirely   based   upon   dispatches /from
tne   United ' States  'This, is' explained
by   the   lathei   astonishing,' announcement that all negotiations-"tc the'piesent day have been entneJy unofficial
'from   a  &ti ictly   d jplomatic   point   of
■view, and that upon'pour-pailers" only
depcrd the generally shared hopes for
a oucces-iul budging over of the diplomatic  difficult*.  These pour, parlers,
ing  Official negotiations will only commence   when   the   ambassador   leaches
Washington   Until that time the exact
conditions   of  tho   contract   are   withheld   TLough it is admitted that Great
Bntair  has agieed to put the'Clayton-
Bulwer tieaty to one side aud tc acquiesce in the constiuction cf the canal
by and uildei the contiol of tno United
Flates t   This    coni-ession    from    lord
Lansdowne's   onginal   contention   has
not' been  £i anted   without 'some   real
or farcied advantage to Great Britain.
It would not be fair to say that a quid
pro qui. constituted the main' featuies
ol the pi oti acted rour parlers, but that
it will diiectly or indirectly lesult is
flrmly established in the minds of tlio
memberf   of  the   cabinet.   One   of   the
incst    responsible    officials    connected
with theso and tho eailier negotiations
"Wo never really objected to the
constiuction of the canal,; but we did
and'do object to a cavalier abrogation
of the Clayton-Bulwer treaty. In was
in that rpirit lord .-.ansdowne coached
his l.ply to the senate in rejection to
tho last Hay Pauncefote treaty. It was
not what >ou wanted to do, but thr.
rasty way wou said it that was the chief
reason foi our crposition."* Since then
we have teen arproached in a rational,
polite manner, ?nd we have again endeavored to substitute the Clayton-
Bulwer tieaty with a treaty that will
enable .Amenca to carry out a design
which m a bioad sense will doubtlcbs
benefit the whole woiid"
The mollification of lhe foreign of-
iico has dcubtles.. done more than anything else to secure the assent of tho
British government to a new treaty,
but almost n< tho same breath must lie
mentiorecl the state department's willingness to cgree to lec'procal arrangements legaiding the British West Indies and other British possessions.
This, while in line with the views latterly attnbuted by special cable du-
patches to ^resident McKinley and
president Roosevelt, was so at variance
with the British government's experience with .tho American attitude that
they regard it in the light-of a'quid pro*
quo for what they believe, to be 'a' concession over . the Nicaragua .proposal.
The allegation -contained in. some of
the British ".papers that /lordyEansdowne
has'tamely giye'il iip the inherent riglit
without any return Is atrenuously^de-1
niei 'on rthe 'foregoing ground. What is
'peihaps', lhbre'''interesting   even - than
the reasons prompting Great Britain'to
send' over   lord   Pauncefote   with   his
draft treaty is the fact that the"inner
circles  of the  cabinet are  pot nearly
so'r-sure' of'•'the? acceptance of the "•contract as -_re^some(£o'frthe leading .pepers
"on*both' side^'of'thV water. When the?
full* terms are announced it 'is feared)
some members*- of' the sei ate may fiudj
robjections   arid   thatv the   forecasts' jbo,
far published attributing too' sweeping
.concession .on ,the part of Great Britain
may.jhaye a. dele'terious reaction. For, instance^ "the,deduction that tbe proposed
"ti;eaty;( in. any ,way .reaffirms,ior extends;
",the scope pf .the Monioe doctrine meets-
with", a direct j denial from the foreignj
.office.' For ttiese and ether reasons lord
(Pauncefote  is*t,ubt< likely- to" affix rhis|
signature'' to' the' document until a ma-;
jority of'the senate shall have h_id af
full ^opportunity    of   studying    Great;
-Britain's ;proposal.'-In  tho  meanwhile!
there exists 'here- a, stoical and, rather j
amusing feeling that'after, all*the;new?
treaty^ may the* pigeon-holed. on_accountf
.of-vsome- senatorial1* objection,*-'though;
,this development} would ^create * the>-uw

According  to the New York Engineering and Mining Journal, British Columbia has eighteen silver-lead, gold-copper, and silver-  copper mines that have paid dividends  aggiegating ?5,771,3,J7? Of these mines,  Slocan  has  seven,   with   dividends   of  $2,230,000 to their credit; Rossland has  iour,   with   dividends   aggregating  ?2,-  169,000;  Camp McKinney, in Yale district, has one" which has paid $478,08.*  to   its   shareholders;    Nelson   district  has four, with $447,000 to their credit;  and   East   Kootenay  has  two,   one  at  Moyie   and   the   other- at   Kimberley.  that  have  paid   $447,000.   When  it  is  taken into consideration that none ot  these   mines,   except   the   Cariboo   at  Camp  McKinney, paid' dividends prior  to 1895, and that some*of them In addition to the dividends paid shareholders  have paid large sums to their', owners  before thu mines were turned over to  incorporated  companies,  the record  is  one that Kootenay need not be ashamed  of   (all  the  mines  except the  one at  ,Campv .McKinney   are   in   Kootenay).  What is more, every mine lhat has paid  dividends,   with   the   exception   of  the  Athaoasca   at   Nelson4 and   the   War  Eagle and Center Star at, Rossland; are  at work, with every'indication of paying  dividends for  years' to  come.

TOR ONE WEEK ONLY  FANCY  P  J?  DR. JEOKYLL AND MR. HYDE  Bad rn the Open; Good on the Quiet  It will be remembered, last summer  a moral wave passed over Nelson. Those  whose' chief stock in trado is morality"  loudly proclaimed that Sunday base ball  was a crime', a crime that must bepun-  ished.   Four aldermen placed themselves  on record on the question, the mayor  and two aldermen doing likewise.   The  _fpi_r_aldermen,_for_-the^tirne-being,.-were-  good; the mayor and tao aldermen, for  the time being, were bad.   But judging'  from the following,  the mayor, while  pretending to be real bad, was in reality  ���real good; he was playing a double part,  something he is said to be exceedingly  proficient at. Imagine tho mayor declaiming loudly again&t any encroachment of  tho personal liberty of the subject when  he was sitting in the council chamber  with   two   newspaper   reporters   ever  ready to take down his spoken words,  then immediately   afterwards,   on   the  quiet, tolling the captain of the base ball  team that if he dared to arrange for a  ."

The Tribune hardly believes that mayor Fletcher, whose  enemies bay is duplicity ��� personified,  would be guilty of such an act of duplicity. But the authority for the statement In the Westminster, a * religious  publication of Toronto. Tltflt gaper's  story is as follows'  "A match ball game was announced  for a certain Sunday afternoon in a. mining city of British Columbia.   A young  minister who had not been long in the  Kootenay felt that  this   must  be prevented, if^possible.   Having appealed to  the team captains without avail, and being by. them courteously invited to mind  his own business, he continued to determine to do so by writing a vigorous appeal to the better public opinion of the  community to pronounce against Sunday  sport; he delivered in additlcto a strong  protest from his  pulpit  on  the Lord's  Day, in which he was joined by the other  ministers, and afterwards went to the  council meeting to ask the council to  prevent such things in the future.   The  council, however, was divided in opinion,  and while the mayor did not feel liko using bis casting vote to settle the problem, ho did so privately, afterwards by  warning the responsible parties that f\  repetition of the offense would gall down  the full weight of his authority upon the  otfenders, which would put an ond to  Sunday sport in that community.   When  the  said  minister  was   vigorously  attacked by an editor, a number of respectable laymen of the city called upon  the editor and withdrew:their subcrlp-  tions and their advertlscmenta from hia  .. ,, . ... ���-.-._-. ��� apprenticeship m British Columbia, for he is  m the habit of sending letters in the  most roundabout way  instead  of  the  most  direct  route.
