 -\~  x& m  00ft  ESTABLISHED  1892  FRIDAY  MORNING,   NOVEMBER  15,   1901  DAILY EDITION  'HE LEAD MIRERS  CONFERENCE WITH THE  !.   SMELTER TRUST.  [lIERICAN  REFINING  COMPANY  |may HANDLE SOME OF SLO-  j CAN'S LEAD ORE.  lit   = .,-    ..**''.,.-  y .-.^       *^   ,__���__.  y  IL  SPOKANE, November 14���There is a  ance that the price of lead paid to  e mine owij.r-rs of* the Coer d'Alenes  11 be reduced below the present arbit-  ^y quotation of'four-cents per pound,  ^conference between the mine owners  Jcl the American Smelting & Refining  pany will be held in New York next  sdnesday, and it will probably oontin-  ,{f or five days." * A. B. Campbell ofthe  indard and the Hecla companies is  ^\v in New York. So is Charles Sweeny  ^.he big Empire State-Idaho company,  Uch controls tho Lost Chance and the  "ger-Poorman groups. Either Peter  [Ireon or Tl.on as Greenough of the  Wing mine will also be in atendance.  [gene Braden, the northwestern mania- for the smelter trust, will leave to-  iht to-attend the conference. The con-  ''jCiice will be a most important one.  L*,c question of handling the' ores of all  Coeur d'Alene mines outside of the  inker Hill & Sullivan will probably  mc to a final decision. -Their present  iitracts for the treatment of ores ex-  ���e on .January 1, and the melting trust  11 not handle any of the various con:-  ,hies' ores after that date unless satis-  Stbry new contracts are entered into,  iese contracts, according to the present  mands of thc company, must be for -i  Viod of five years at rates practically  >e same as these now in vogue. The  ain factor in the abeyance relates to  ',*-' terms under whicli the price of lead  ill be fixed.  A contract was offered to tho miners  y the smelting trust last spring under  ;*ie terms of which thc mlneowners and  ,he   smelting   corporation   should   each  amo representatives who would  meet  ���very six months and would then fix'tho  Vice of lead for the coming half year  Period.   Some of tho mineowners objected to that.-The smelting trust thereupon  Arbitrarily withdrew its proposal and-an-  .-jounced that it alone wculd fix the pries  f tead.    It would leave the miners no  option in the matter.   The company.offered no guaranteo of permanency in"_h3  price.    In fact, under the terms of its  new   proposition    it   would   absolutely  dominate the lead miners and would fix  any price that it wished for their product :     u  The miners would have no redress in  the matter. The miners refused to consider such a proposition, and th.jy came  back west in an exceedingly dissatisfied  condition'.....Since then things have bee'*!  dormant. It appears now that the smelting trust will reconsider its arbitrary demands'and will make a proposal which  will permit the miners to have a voice  in fixing the price of lead along" some  plan as would be involved in the. confer-  once idea. The idea of well informed  wining men is that, the-price of lead-will*  "pi^tral51y_b"e~re"duced_sdmewhat-from-the'  present arbitrary figure of four cents a  .pound... The rate, as is generally cun-  eded, if in a measure a fictitious ono.  it.has leen maintained by the smelting  empany by cutting down the lead out-  ut of tho country. It is conceded tha;  ihe price of lead would fall if the normal output of the country should be restored. It is considered likely that the  oiineowners. and the smelting company  -n the proposed conferences will agree  ���pon what rate of reduction shall be  ���nade by the various companies in their  ���nitput, so as to reduce the output to  'i.eet consumption.  A most important feature of the new  .Aid situation is likely to relate to the.  .ItH.'ide of the American Smelting & Reining. Company toward British Colum-  jialead ores. At present tho smelting  :ompany refuses to buy ores from Brit-  ���ih Columbia lead mines. The smelting  jompany is now considering a plan by  vhich it will re-enter the British Col-  lmbia field, and will take at least a part  if the ores from thc Slocan and East  Cootenay.   . Rathbone Plead. Nofc Guilty  JEFFERSONVILLE, Indiana, Novem-  erU.���Newell C. Rathbone, suspected  �� killing Charles Goodman in a hotel  ere by poisoning, was today positively  lentified by an officer end an ac'quain-  uice of the prisoner from Little Rock,  .rkansas, where Rathbone lived for a  '.me*.

The prisoner is  .coming less talkative and already resizes that he has talked too much, but  e is reported to have said to a fellow  risoner at the jail: "The officers  aven't a thing on wliich to convict me.  man's intention does not mean ho  ay be convicted."  Want Bandits to Capture Them  'PARIS,   November   14.���The   Turkish  overnment is much exercised over tho.  ^port that two American girls named  elauney and Stetson have "started for  Turkey with the idea of being captured  by brigands in a manner similar to the  case of Miss Stone. The Turkish legation hero has received a dispatch instructing tho officials to investigate the  matter and endeavor to ascertain the  girls' whereabouts, as it is thought they  wil! pass through Paris. A dispatch  from Philadelphia published here November 2nd announced that two girls,  " Kate Boyle and Flora Preston,. had  started for Macedonia with the idea of  getting abducted by brigands. Possibly  tlis was the origin of the porte's perturbation.  A Verdict of Not Guilty.

His condition is serious.  OPPOSED TO EXCLUSION ACT  Some Officials Think It Unjust. -  WASHINGTON, November 14.���In in  article of more than a column in length  a New York paper enters into the probabilities of the re-enactment of the  Chinese Exclusion Act. It is stated,  with what authority it be said,  lhat secretary Gag-? and the officials  of the treasury department, with thc exception of commissioner-general of immigration Powderly, are all opposed to  its re-enactment; that they, hold that it  is wrong in principle, ineffective in its  operation and that great commercial interests of the United States demand that  it should not be renewed.  As to the first;objection, viz.: That ;t  is wrong in principle, some very good  people are known, to entertain a very  different notion. The efforts to constantly make it apear that the entire agitation is the result of the exclusive activity of organized labor, is intended to  circumscribe its general importance and  to* make it appear as if it were merely  a question of wages. Were this* really  =the=case,=then=there=would=certainly*=be-  ample reason for its re-enactment, since  it may lie held with some degree of  equity that the more tnan 2,000,000 of  organized workingmen, _r���jiit all of whom  are American citizens by birth ojr naturalization, are entitled to some protection against a competition against which  not only our own labor, but the laborers  of the civilized world, stands helpless.  But the assertion is not based upon facts,  Organized labor furnishes the m'achin--  ery and gives it its unanimous support,  but the restriction and exclusion laws  were enacted because of the unanimous  sentiment of the people of the Pacfiic  coast. Organized labor was the smalle-'.t  factor involved. Thus far the balance  of trade has always heen in favor of  China, and when we consider tho large  amount of money annually sent to .China  by Chinese in this country, and tiie va')  trifling help they give our manufacturers and merchants, it hardly seems a fair  compensation for the return. One hundred thousand of our own people employed in place of the Chinese now fill'  ing their places would be infinitely more  valuable to our trade than all the advantage we may possibly derive from our  trade with China.- One hundred thousand of our people earning $400 a yeav  per head means $40,000,000 added annually to our wealth. An equal number of  Chinese earning $260 per head,- living on  $100 per year, including rent, using but  25 per cent of American product, add  hardly more than $20 per head per yjar  to the wealth of_cur nation.  The   game   hardly   seems worth   the  candle, j  .      ��� ���  Main Line Is Incomplete  NEW YORK, November 14.���A letter  appears in the London Times from a correspondent who has just been over the  whole route of tlie trans-Siberian railway. The writer intimated that the  Russian declarations regarding the completion of the line are untrue. He says  there are many gaps in the main line,  the large bridges are not completed and  three tunnels have scarcely been begun.  The construction trains frequently leave  the rails.       Burlington Deal Hangs Fire.  CHICAGO,     November     14���Another  adjournment  of  the  stockholders'  annual meting of the Chicago, Burlington  & Quiney railroad was taken today, this  timo until November 21st. The Post today says that while details which would  show tho reason for the delay in the  election of directors are lacking, it is  apparent that the settlement of the  Great Northern difficulty does not carry  with it a settlement of the Burlington  troubles. This is cadence, says tho Posr,  that the proportion of representation  which should be accorded the different  interests is still a stumbling block.  TONIGHT'S SCBAP  Slight Temblor in Utah.  SALT LAKE, Utah, November 14.���  Specials from various points in Southern  Utah gives meager accounts of an earthquake shock shortly after 9.30 o'clock  last night. The shock lasted fully 30  seconds in some places. So far as reported no loss of life and comparatively  little damage to property resulted.

Orton, one of Winnipeg's oldest medical  men, died today as the result of injuries  received several weeks ago while shooting.'; Deceased was a former member in  the house of commons for Wellington  Center.  PUBLICITY   IS  THE  CURE  For the Trust Evil.  CHICAGO. November 14.���James B.  Dill delivered an address on "Trusts;  Their Uses and Abuse ," before the Merchants' Club. It was a masterly handling  of the great industrial problem, for the  noted New 'i ork lawyer has perfected  some of the giant combinations of the  world,, and perhaps no 'mar. is so well  qualified to talk as an expert. Assuming that industrial pools are a part of  America's progress toward commercial  supremacy, and neither can nor should  be averted, Mr. Dill considered how thoy  could be regarded so as to be a beneficial . factor in the country's prosperity.  Belter results can be secured by wise  direction by the managements, Mr. Dill  held, than by legislation. Such laws as  are' requisite, he said, should be either  uniform in the states or national. The  tendency now is to have too much laxity  in somo states and too drastic and op-  p. csive legislation in others.  Publicity in the affairs of the combinations he regarded as a paramount necessity, The evil of trusts getting into  the field of legislation and thence into  rclitics wao erlarged upon, although  Mr. Dill held that rigid state laws often  drove them to this self-defense. He also  insisted'that the controllers of any trust  would bring ruin -upon it by manipulating the securities upon the stock mark9t.  University Professors Agree.  BERLIN, November 14.���The cancer  investigations made by professor Ros-  well Park of the University of 'Buffalo  have given results in every way identical with those secured by profesor  Maxmilian Schueller of the Berlin University, although both investigations  were made independently of each other.  Nurses Are Exonerated.

They  say most of the meetings will be of a  social -character.  ROSEBERY IS DISSATISFIED  With Conduct of House of Lords.  LONDON, November 14.���Lord Rosebery, speaking tonight in Edinburgh,  said ho did not intend to again try  to secure a reform of the house of lords,  as this was not a task for an individual, but ono needing a national impulse. "I would see," he continued, "an experiment for a year of a  government formed entirely of business men, such ofr example as sir  Thomas Lipton and Mr. Carnegie, instead of politicians. I would ask you,  are we getting our money's worth for  the money spent? We are beginning to  learn a lesson that great measures must  in future be carried more by the harmony of contending parties or by the  agreement of the belligerent politicians  than by the overpowering ascendancy  of any one faction in the country."  Continuing, the speaker said he  blamed no party and no government,  but saw arcund him questions demanding solution and general apathy and  impotence to deal with them. Political  parties, he said, must on occasions, he  willing to sink their differences and  forget who Was in power and' who  would get credit for the carrying out  of measures if they wish those measures  to be carried out.  An Eleven Million Contract.  HAVANA, Noveniber 14.���The commission of the municipal council of Havana appointed to investigate the proposition of Michael J. Daly to reduce his  bid for the sewer and paving contract  of Havana by $572,038 has agreed to accept Daly's proposition and will recommend tliat he be given the contract. The  amount of Daly's original bid was $11,-  485,596.06.  THE CHAMPION MAKES A  PREDICTION.  SAYS HE WILL DO RUHLIN ABOUT  THE TENTH OB TWELFTH  BOUND.  SAN FRANCISCO, November 14.���  With the Jeffries-Ruhlin championship  battle but twenty-four hours away public interest is kept up to a high pitch.  All day long enthusiastic people have  been flocking into the city from for and  wide. It is evident at this time that  Mechanics' Favilion, where the" fight  will take place, will be taxed to its utmost capacity. This means fully 10,000  people will witness the fight. A group  of clergymen have been striving all day  to induce the officials of the law to stop  the mill, but they have received no encouragement. Tonight they paid their  respects to mayor Phelan and received  the same information which was imparted to them by the district attorney and  chief of dectectives. They were apprised  of the fact that whilo a state law prohibits prize ring.fighting a local ordi-  rance countenances boxing exhibitions  held under the auspicies of/any incorporated club, and that the latter measure precludes all possibility'of the city  fathers stopping the fight at this juncture. The police, if thoy believe the mill  to be ^brutal and therefore, beyond the  pale of a legitimate, exhibition with  gloves, may enter the ring and stop the  bcut after it starts, but not-before. The  training ordeal is at an end and the  trainers of the fighters are anxious now  simply to keep their men from getting  a tiifle stale or possibly mentally depressed. Jefieries is full of life and  ���imilingly declares .that he will heat  Ruhlin along about the tenth or twelfth  rourd  copper property owned by a miner  named McDonald near Bella Coola on  the coast of British Columbia. Rogers  has closed the deal for another property  at Observatory inlet.  The Cassiar Central Company will  start a pulp mill industry on Goose Bay,  Conservatory inlet, where they will  have a water power of 30,000 inches, with  a fall of 200 feet.

Mr. Frecheville, the Le Roi director,  has rented offices in the Bank of Montreal building, aud it is said the Le Roi  office headquarters will be transferred  from the old B. A. C. offices on Nickle  Plate flat'to the bank building at once.  Street talk points to very probable friction between Bernard McDonald and the  new management of the Le Roi, and the  change of quarters has emphasized the  rumor. The London news received  here today credits the fall in Le Roi  stock to company complications, with  what truth is not known here. .  Greenwood Local News.  GREEI.WOOD, November 14.-^-[Spec-  ial to The Tribune.]���Early this morning two well-known minors renewed a  quarrel about a woman.

OMAHA, November 14.���Twenty-four  sticks of dynamite, a piece of fuse aa-3  an explosion cap was found by a farmer's boy near the bridge of lhe Burlington road at Havelock, Nebraska, Sunday.  The matter was not reported to the railroad officials at once, however, and it is  feared the would be criminals have escaped. A force of detectives is at work  on the case. An attempt at train wrecking and robbery is supposed to be the  explanation of the explosives being  placed at the bridge. The matter has  been kept quiet with tho hope of sccur-  ingvthe culprits.  LINCOLN, Nebraska, November 14.���  Local officials of tho Burlington railroad admitted tonight that since the  first of tho week their night trains leaving Lincoln have gone out with a guard  armed with Winchester rifles. This precaution was taken following the discovery last Sunday of 24 sticks of dynamite,  together with a number of masks hidden  under a bridge just outside of the city.  Sunday night three men attempted to  beard the express car as a train pulled  out of Lincoln for the east, but they  were driven off. Monday the same three  men were at Ashland and an effort was  made to arrest them, but they disappeared. A watch has been kept on the bridge  whero the dynamite was stored but no  one has come to claim it.  Dueling in German Army.  BERLIN, November 14.���The public  was considerably excited this week on  account of the duel at Instorberg, East  Prussia, in which lieutenant Blasko-  witz of tho army was killed by lieutenant Hilderbrand, also of the army.  Tho military officials have not yet made  a .statement of the facts, but the National Zeitung has obtained an authoritative account of tho meeting, which is  as follows: Lieutenants Hildebrand and  Rassmussen met lieutenant Blaskowitz  going home one night in a state of Intoxication, carried him, to a spot near  his residence and left him there. They  returned to the spot later, however,  and found Blaskowitz crouching against  a wall, and tried to arouse him and get  him on his feet. Blaskowitz, being ignorant of the identity of the two men,  who wer3 endeavoring to assist him,  struck right and left in his semi-somnolent state and hit lieutenant Hildebrand.  The latter considered himself insulted  by the blow he received and reported  the matter to the court of honor, which  decided that a duel was unavoidable,  whereupon lieutenant Hildebrand challenged lieutenant Blasicowitz. The latter, however, unconscious of what had  occurred while he was intoxicated,  went to Eylau the next day to attend a  party held at the house of a young lady  whom he was to marry on the following day. When a telegram recalling him  to meet Hildebrand was received, Blaskowitz wanted to settle the matter with  an apology, but the highest officers of  the brigade and division sanctioned tha  finding of the court of honor, that a  duel was necossary, and it ended in the  manner detailed.  Newspapers of all shades of opinion  express amazement at thc action of the  court of honor. Even the conservative  rapers regard the action of the court as  heing incomprehensible. It is expected  that tho ease will come before the Reichstag. The papers use the strongest lan-  suaere against permitting such duels,  holding that the superior officers-are responsible. -  Loss by the Recent Gale.  LONDON, November 14.���It is still  impossible to estimate the total loss of  life and property resulting from the  protracted gale and probably the full  'extent -of the damage will never be  known. Tons of wreckage of unidentified vessels are still being thrown up.  Altogether, it is known that some fifty  vessels have been wrecked along the  British coast. Thirty-four of these have  been absolute wrecks, involving, it is  believed, a loss of more than 150  drowned. The Yarmouth lifeboat disaster alone leaves 44 fatherless children.

Photographs of cx-presi-  dent Saravoff of tho Meccdonian committee have been circulated among the  troops on the Turkish side of the border,  the belief being that he is now with the  brigands in the vicinity of tho frontier.

A MINE DISASTEB  'I  i- i  ���,'U  WEST VIRGINIA COLLIERY  ON FIRE.  FIVE DEAD BODIES HAVE BEEN  TAKEN   OUT���MANY  UNACCOUNTED FOB.  ->    u  BLUEFIELD, West Virginia, November   14.���Five   dead   bodies   have  been  taken the Baby  mine  at   Pocoh-  ontas.    Other persons are unaccounted  lor and   25   have   been   rescued   more*  or less severely burned.    At 4 o'clock  this morning it was' discovered that tSo  Baby mine of the Pocohontas Colliery  Company was on fire. An alarm was sent  in  and   the   fire   company   responded  promptly.   In a very short time after the  fire-fighters had reached the mouth of  the mines and were attempting to extinguish the flames, some of the firemeu  and others hu\irg rushed into the mines  to ascertain the extent of the trouble  and to assist the miners entombed therein,  when a terrific explosion occurred  and  many  miners   and   their   friends  were more or less injured. It is supposed!  that the mines caught fire from a de-  '  fective electric light wire.   Five bodies  had been recovered, up to 6 o'clock tc-    f  night and it is uncertain how many mora  are dead, though it is now known that  there are several, perhaps eight or ten. >  still in the mines unless they succeeded ���  in making their escape through the Tug    ~  river   entrance.      Twenty-five    persons % ' 7  havo   been   rescued,   all   more   or -less"  burned, some seriously and perhaps fa-   \'-  tally.   The injured wero-carried to their. ,  hemes in wagons and all the physicians  in Pocohontas have been-busy all day""  attending to the injured.    One or 'two   ���  ether explosions have followed that'of   ,  the early morning and others are hourly-  expected.   The mine is still burning and  clouds of smoke are constantly issuing  from its mouth.   The fan has now been  stopped and as soon as it is possible to   ���  do so the mine will be re-entered with  the hope of extinguishing the fire.  Schley to Live in Washington  WASHINGTON, November 14.���Rear-  admiral Schley will make his permanent5  home in Washington. He will retain his  headquarters here at his hotel until the  decision of the court of inquiry has been  rendered. The friends of admiial Schley  do not expect'that the verdict of'the  court will be in any way a reflection on  him and he will not find it embarrassing  to livo in Washington among the naval  set. It is said, however, tbat admiral  Sampson will not remain in Washington  if rear-admiral Schley is sustained, not-  ���wthstanding Sampson has bought a  house here and it has been announced  by his friends that he will remain indefinitely. The old report has been revived that admiral Schley will, if he is  vindicated, bring suits against those  -i.ho defamed him. When close friends'  of the admiral were asked today about  Jhe renewal of therumor they said there_  was nothing specially new in the report.  Admiral Schley will not discuss the subject on the ground that ho could not talk  at this time.    Queen Wilhelmina's Condition.

Dudley's claim is not a just one;;and :is'try.T.  i,ng to prevent its payment.   In order to  do this, he had to apply for an injunction  Restraining   another   city   official   from  paying Dudley's claim; but in order to  make the application for the injunction,"  the mayor, had to secure the. services of  a lawyer.   Naturally, he applied to the.  corporation's  lawyer, Mr.. Judson;   but  that .official refused   to   act,  saying  he  ���kas employed by the man who was trying to gelt money out of tho city.: Were,  other city officials to do as city solicitors  sometimes do, they would be tarred and  feathered. ,  It is stated on what is believed to be  good authority that the building of a  lead refinery in Canada is now assured,  and that it may be located at-Nelson.  Whilst The Tribune merely voices local  public opinion in desiring its erection at  Nelson, yet the building of the refinery  is of first importance, no matter where,  it is located. The refinery will place tho  silver-lead mines of Kootenay entirely  independent of the American Smelting  & Refining Company, something.! that  will benefit every camp in Kootenay. The,  greatest good to the greatest number  cannot injure nny paiticular town in  Kootenay, and what benefits Kootenay  at large will help Nelson as Kootenay's  chief cci ni<rcial center.

Promising Froperty Mismanaged.  E. Rammelmeyer of Nelson, who for  many years has been actively engaged  in mining enterprises in Kootenay has  returned from Fairview. Mr. Rammelmeyer-some'time ago left' the Emily,  Edith mine at Silverton to take the su-  perintendency of the Stemwinder mine  in Pair,view.-d:strict. He reports mining  generally,-,.there- somewhat slack,- and  fears that-in some instances likely, looking pjx^ierties are suffering from want  of practical mining men being in charge.  Considerable, interest is'being manifested  in the' railway, survey, parties,' but hope  has been so long -deferred'-'that people  seem to have lost faith in those much  advertised transportation yentures. At  present no other'property is being worked in that camn except, the Stemwindjr.  This property, in' Mr.' Ra'mmelmeyer's  opinion, may be capable, if left in the  hands of practical '��� mining-men to~ develop .the mine -and- work the mill, of  producing..profits for--. its shareholders,  a 1 though:, like' most' 'of .the ptlier. mines  in* that section, the c>re is not high grade  and requires very careful handling.'

An inquiry' indicates that  there is danger of a complete misunderstanding of the matter. The-British  government is endeavoring to negotiate  a treaty with Nicaragua wi-ich will en-  , able the British tc retire from all claims  of jurisdiction on the Mosquito coast,  leaving Nicaragua in full sovereignty  there, with due guarantees for the proper  dealing with the.Indians hitherto under  : British protection.- The United States  government has taken ho action in the  matter, but it is of course to-the interests of the United States- that" some  such absolute recognition of the sovereignty of Nicaragua should be made'and  the pending questions arising out of the  treaty of Managua between Great Britain and Nicaragua gotten out bf the  way.

Queen Anne, who figures in "'The First  Duchess of Marlborough," which Mrs. Le  Moyne has been presenting at the Columbia theater, was once surrounded by  a host of gayly dressed coin-tiers, and in  the throng was an old man of eighty-  three, wearing the plain dross of a country farmer. "Have you ever scon such a  sight before?" asked a looker on, aud  the throng was startled to hear the old  man say: "Never since I sat in her  chair."   It was Cromwell's son.  ir.g the information."all's well." The  youth turned over, and settled down for  another nap, hut the. next hour was  awakened again by the unwelcome-call.  When this had been repeated the third  time he decided to endure it no longer,  and going to the door of his tent, called  out: "Look here, my good man, it's very  kind of you to tell me t.he time, but I  haye a watch here by my bed, so please  spare yourself further trouble."  Thc lato ameer of Afghanistan was  not a great admirer of the British system  of government. On_ one occasion a very  high perbonagc was conferring with him  and said, in relation to some matter:  "This is a very grave question, and 1  must refer it to her majesty's govcrn-  ��� ment." The ameer, who did not clearly  distinguish the raits of the British constitution, replied: "When you ask me  a question I am able to answer itcat  once; when I ask you, you say you must  first ask seven hundred ether gentlemen.

An eminent hvyer, while intoxicated,  once entered a church where the minis-  - ter was holding forth on thc future punishment of the. wicked. Fixing his eyes  upon the lawyer, who was reeling near  the door, tho preacher exclaimed: "There  glands a sinner against whom I shall  hear witness in the day of judgment."  At this the lawyer folded his arms,  planted himself as firmly as he could,  and addrcscd kir self thus to the preacher: "Sir, I have been practicing in the  criminal courts for twenty years, and I  have always fcund that the greatest rascal is the., flrst to give slate's evidence.  A pathetic incident is related in connection with a bicgraph scene, which  was exhibited in Detroit last March. A  view made at the occupation of Pekin  was flashed across the screen. It represented a detachment nf the Fourteenth  United States infantry entering the gates  of the Chinese capital. As the last file  of.soldiers seemed literally stepping out  of thc frame cf the stage, there arcse a  scream from a woman, who sat in front.

I sent it to a popular singer ln the music-halls, and the  audience that heard it first .seemed to  like it. The next day the following message was sent to the theater-and later  turned over to me. It was signed 'Aa  Idaho American,' and read: 'You blasted  Englishman, don't you know there isn't  a coon in all the state of Idaho? But  thero are girls in Idaho.

Dewar and family accompanied by-his-mother and a brother from  Vancouver, left this morning for Pic-  tcn, Nova Scotia, where they will hereafter reside. They went via the Crow's  Nest. road.  Commercial travelers are reported!  as saying that orders are larger by 25  per cent th'an at this time during,the  last two years. -The banks also report  collection good. Jjoth are indications  that this country is all right.  Commercial men who have returned  from Lardo over the railroad grade  report it as pretty crough traveling.  They say the contractors run as few  trains to the Lardo as they can for the  reason that when a train is known to  be running the men on the grade climb  on and pull out.  Two registrations were made at the-  Nelson registry office yesterday, the fees  upon which aggregated something over  $500. The one was the mortgage in favor  of the debenture holders of the Hall  Mining & Smelting Company, and the  second was the registration pf title ofthe Giant mining property in the Rossland camp.  ���  The laying of steel has commenced  on the Hot Air ;Lino which is being constructed between Grand Forks' and  j^ie__J___puWta___2ampl=i n^the^state^of^  Washington, and the company's rolling stock is said to be on the way. out  from the east. It is said this line will  be extended on to Spokane from Republic next summer.  In the case of Morgues vs. the Chapleau Mining Company, an application  was made before judge Fcrin yesterday  for the examination of the plaintiff in  the case so that he could return to  France, but the application was refused,  so the engineer of the company will be  obliged to remain until the action comes  on for trial in the ordinary way.  Chauncey Boyengton, the man who was  brought to Nelson by constable Barnes  upon a charge of having brought stolen  good into the country, was taken before  judge Forin yesterday for election. He  entered a plea of not guilty and elected  speedy trial, the same being fixed for  Monday, the 25th instant. Boyengton's  trouble is the result of hiring a horso,  which was not returned to its owner.  QBOCBB8 ASH FBQVtBVDN DEALKB8, Houston Block, BaSgr Street.  The list of those who are entitled to  vote on the W. K. P. &. L. Co. by-law  has been printed. It shows that the  East ward has 555 property owners, of  whom 457 are residents and 98 nonresidents. The West ward has 304 property owners, of whom 229 are residents and 75 non-residents. The names  on the list will be printed in The Tribune tomorrow, so that there will be no  excuse for people to say they did not  know their names were on the list.   .  The force at the Arlington mine was  increased by 15 .men this week. This  gives the Arlington a payroll of 70 me-i.  The appearance of the property is said  to be very much improved within the  past two weeks and commencing next  week the output of the property will  be increased up to one car of concentrates and crude ore per day. The Arlington ore and concentrates are treated  at the Nelson smelter and are said to  yield uniformly high values;  The directors of the Summit-Ymir  Company have let a contract with W.  Duncan for the completion of the crosscut upon the vein and for the running  the property is now in some 120 feet,  the last Ave feet of which has crosscut  the vein from the hanging wall side.  Where tapped by the crosscut the values in the property were very small,  but the directors of the property believe  that values can be secured when the  footwall is reached. It is estimated that  tlie footwall will be reached with 15  feet of work and the amount of drifting on it will be largely determined by  the values in the ore.  B. F. Jenkins, general superintendent  of the Canadian Pacific telegraph, Western division, has returned to Winnipeg  from his annual trip of inspection of  thc lines west of Manitoba. Interviewed  by a Free Press reporter, he said that  everything in connection with the company's lines was founa in a very satisfactory condition. An additional through  wire of extra heavy gauge is now being  strung through to Nelson over the  Crow's Nest Pass road.  J. J. Roets of Ymir had a lively time  at the Grand Central yesterday. He registered under, an assumed name in order  to avoid a number of. Ymir men who  were stopping at the hotel, but they  found, him-.put' and .invaded "his room.  While a number of the party were engaged in shaking his hands the others  employed themselves in shaking his  trousers, which they relieved of all  loose money. While the jolly men from  Ymir were enjoying themselves on the  plt'oceeda pfl their' haul, their, victim  slipped out of his room and engaging  an expressman carted their baggage  away and pledged it in the secondhand store, is safe to say there  will be some mad men from Ymir in the  morning.    ;:-* _'*.', *, '.'**."-  PERSONALS.

ABOUT READY FOR THE PLANT  Cascade Power Company's Progress.  J. Roderick Robertson has returned  from Cascade, where he has been looking over the construction work in connection with the large power plant  which the Cascade Power Company is  installing at that point. He reports good  progress as being made in all of the  work with the exception of one piece  being under co.ntract, and the. indications are that the company will be" in  readiness for the machinery before the  WeBtinghouse people will be able to  supply it. When completed the plant  and lines of the Cascade company will  represent an expenditure of close upon  $450,000, the expediture for copper alone  being considerably over the $100,000  mark owing to the length of the lines  which the company has arranged to  build and to the further fact that much  heavier copper is necessary as the line  is carried further from the power house.  When the company is ready for business, as it expects to be in about a  couple of months, it will have machinery installed capable of developing  3000 horse power, so that its capacity  will be equal to that of the Bonnington  Falls plant, but the plant at Cascade  NELSON, B.C.

The company aims at supplying power to all important points in  the Boundary such as Phoenix, Greenwood and Grand Forks, and the present  outlook is that it will have a profitable  market at the outset for all the power  that it can generate.  In discussing the refinery project,  which during the past couple of weeks  has received considerable attention from  the Canadian Pacific Railway Company  and the chief producers of lead ores in  the district, Mr. Robertson said that the  prospects for securing the refinery had  very much improved within the past  few days and there was now every reason to believe that an early start would  be made in the erection of the refinery.  On being questioned as to the truth  of the report that a meeting of the lead  producers was to be called for the purpose of taking independent action  with respect to the erection of a smelter  and refinery, Mr. Robertson said that a  movement was on foot for the calling  of a meeting'of the lead producers for  the purpose of discussing the situation,  but tbat a better understanding had  been brought about. within the past  two days with the promoters of the C:  P. R.���project, -and as a result of this it  was not likely that a meeting of the lead  producers would be. held, and in any  event it would not be held on the date  originally decided upon, which was December 4th.  On the outlook for'home smelting and  refining of British Columbia ores Mr.  Reberston expressed himself as very  hopeful. The erection of the smelting  plants at Nelson and Trail in his opinion marked but, the commencement of  an Important smelting and/refining industry and. with the development of  the coal resources of East Kootenay and  the iron resources of the southern portion of- West Kootenay he looked to  see something in the way of a complete  reversal of the" mining and smelting  conditions which had previously obtained and. ores imported Into the district for treatment instead of its' own  ores ��� being exported for treatment in  tbe. smelters of the United States. A  commencement along this line would  first be noted with respect to the ores  of-the-Republic camp In the state of  Washington, and he looked to see ores  coming from the states of Idaho and  Montana for, treatment In the smelters  and refineries of this province.
