Y*  ESTABLISHED  1892  SATURDAY  MOREING,  NOVEMBER  16,   1901  D'AILY EDITION  IS CHAMPION YET  [JEFFRIES'  QUICK   FINISH  OF THE AKRON GIANT.  |RUHLIN'S   SECONDS   THROW   UP  THE SPONGE AT END OF THE  FIFTH ROUND.  SAN FRANCISCO, November 15.���  ,Before an assemblage of 10,000 people  ,at the Mechanics' Pavilion, which has  been the scene of many important and  (bitter struggles in the past, James J.  [Jeffries of Los Angeles, California, met  'Gus Ruhlin, thu "Akron Giant" tonight  [and fotght for the title which he has  [held since his memorable battle with  iFitzsimmons. Early in the afternoon a  [icng line of*n.en assembled on the Lar-  jlcin street side of the pavilion and had  la vearied vigil in a drizzling rain until  [nghtfall, when, the sale of Uie.gallery  seats wai opened. Never in the history  of f San Francisco has there been Wh  [a crush of humanity at a pugilistic  event. Hardly had the sun dragged  iitself beneath the hill towards the  ocean before the "great pavilion began  to fill with enthusiastic crowds gathered to witness the championship cou-  kest. Thousands poured into the gallery until the door was finally opened  End long before the first preliminary  bait was called the upper portion of the-  'pavilion was black with spectators  People'coming from all points, between  Vancouver and Mexico, and embracing  well krewu slate officials, members of  the judiciary and prominent sporting  men, lock possession of the high-  priced seats early. At 8:15 "o'clock\a  stir at the east end ot thc pavilion  indicated that one of the principals had  arrived and was proceeding' to his  dressing room. The, word was soon  - passed that Gus Ruhlin. .the Akron  Giant, had reached the scene.of cons-  bat" from Blanken's Six - mile ��� house:  Ruhlin went at once tc. his dressing  rocm, accompanied by Billy Madde:i,  Denver Ed Martin, Chailie Goff and  young' Gibbs.'-who later eppeared in his  corner when the'flght was"called.- --'-_  A rumor emanating from Oakland  seized the crowd early in tlie evening  to the effect that Jeffries'had suffered  an injury to ono of his hands' before  starting for San Franclr.co, but popular  sentiment condemned the ytory as a  canard and tho betting at the ringside was not affected by the event.  The odds were 2 to 1, although there  -were bursts of enthusiasm from either  side in which longer odds were offered.  Almost from the beginning of the fight  Ruhlin appeared frightuned. The fight  was practically finished in the second  round, when Jeffries landed a left hook  on tlie jaw that took all the fight out  of Ruhlin. Ruhlin claimed that a chance  blow in the pit of the stomach rendered  -hi m-=-unfit_f or_^flgh ti ng^_His_s_e_eonds_  complained bittcrloy, but Ruhlin insisted that he was the victim of an accident. Jeffries we Iked to Ruhlin's corner, asked what was the matter, then  turned in disgust and proceeded to his  dressing room while the spectators  rose as one lvan and cheered the  champion Avhile they derovrced Ruhlin as a quitter and, fakir. The police  tumbled into the ring and stopped-the  fights in which Corbett, the referee, and  officers of the club were involved. The  rtmost '���excitement"' prevailed, during  ���which Ruhlin made hisr way cut of tha  ring. .���*..���'."..'.*  FIGHT BY ROUNDS.  Round 1.���Ruhlin taps JefTries on the  ear with left.

Ruhlin sends left  to mouth, but. Jeff lands hard left on  head Again Jeff chases Ruhlin around  ring and tries left. Jeff rushes Ruhlin  to ropes, puts left to stomach. Ruhlin  jabs left to chin. Jim uppercuts with left  to body. Ruhlin is pretty tired. Jim  misses left swing for head. Ruhlin  smothers left for chin. Ruhlin aends  straight left to head twice. Ruhlin  clucks a straight left and Jeff puts right  to ribs at bell.   .  Round 4.���Ruhlin sends 'sharp loft .mo  to mouth. They rush together. Jeff  sends hard left to neck twice. Ruhlin  tends stiff left to face. In a clinch Jeff  crosses Ruhlin's neck with left elbow  and is hissed.   They oxchangejeftejo  face. Jeft puts left to Ruhlin's eye, land*,  loft and right on body and Ruhlin looks  serious for a moment. Ruhlin is fairly  correct with his left, but has not dono  much damage. They clinch. As they  break away Jeffuppercuts with left and  right. Jeff has Ruhlin groggy from  right and left to jaw. Ruhlin went to  his knees from a light left to neck and  takes eight seconds. As he comes up  the bell rings.  Round 5.���Ruhlin gets straight left to  forehead. They waste no time sparring,  but fight all the time. They exchange  lefts to body. Ruhlin sends loft to stomach, but Jeff sends hard left uppercut  home to chest. Jeff swings hard loft to  neck. Jeff has Ruhlin very tirea. Jef  sends left to jaw.. Ruhlin is short with  left to face. Next time ho connects  lightly. Ruhlin is on his knees from a  light left swing to neck. He stays down  eight seconds. When he gets up Jeff  sends stiff loft to the neck. Kuhlin ducks  two left swings that were intended to  put him out of business. Both men are  tired and Ruhlin hanging on. Ruhlin's  seconds throw up the spongo at the end  of round Ruhlin was very groggy and  a beaten man. Jeff is warmly congratulated and is not the least bit damaged,  barring the bruise on his mouth. Madden  threw up the sponge, his man was fairly  beaten and he wanted to save him. Jeffries'would surely havo won in the next  round. Ruhlin did his best, but was  hopelessly outclassed.  Cpiura.

ROSSLAND, November 15.���[Special  to The Tribuue.]���Not only will tho  headquarters of the Le Roi-company, be  removed from the old- B. A. C. offices  to the Bank of Montreal building, but  R. J. Frecheville has made arrangements to live at the Hotel Allan, whero  he has engaged rooms. The current  story on the streets today war. that Mr.  Frecheville was invited to find quarters  oiscwheie by the ex-manager of the Le  Roi. In any cane, theie appears to ce  no doubt of the friction existing between tI-3 two. Le Roi continues to  drop in London, and it was insisted  today in Rossland that the drop is not  caused by manipulation, but by the past  na'i management of the mine.

ROANOKE, West Virginia, November  15.���Nine bodies have been taken from  the Baby mine at Pocahontas up to  noon. It is believed the list of deaths  will exceed twenty. The number of injured will.be about thirty. The mine is  still burning, but no more explosions are  looked for.  The report of the proceedings of.the  second ordinary general meeting of tho  Hall Mining & Smelting Company, Limited, which was held in London on the  31st ultimo, reached Nelson yesterday.  Lord Ernest Hamilton1, chairman of  the company, presided, ' and in the  course of his address ^to the shareholders.'ho gave a review of the company's  operations for the past fiscal year,  which will be read witli interest by the  people of Nelson." While the results attained in the period embraced in the  company's financial ,year were not in  themselves- calculated to arouse enthu-  .    r _ , f _  siasm among shareholders, the outlook  for the immediate future is very bright  indeed. The marked success achieved  by captain Gifford in his development  of the company's property received due  notice from the chairman, but the fruits  .of his work fell Must outside of the  year under review. In the course of  . his kremarks_>in-moving the directors'  report and" balance sheet the chairman  xsaid in part:      ^x\     , '  "You will remember perhaps, that we  looked to- the - smelter to pay the expenses of developing the * mine. Of course  it has been very far from'doing anything'of-the'sort;   in'"fact, financially  speaking, the lead' smelting during the  past year has been a failure, but it has  been a failure of, which the causes have  been  very   simple,.and .very  apparent.  Almost from the first moment of our  commencing    smelter ' 'iterations,    we  have���had to-face a fallHn the price of  lead "and silver which is quite without  parallel  in  recent years.  We did  not  practically begin,to smelt until the end  of October, though we had to buy ores  previous to that date.- I take up the official  returns  in  the" price of lead in  .London  during the. sJx--months  and, I  find   iri   October,   1900,   wliich  is  when  we began  lead  smelting,  the price of  lead was ��17 lis lid per ton; in November it was ��17 4s 7dpin December  it was ��16 4s 8d; in January, 1900, it  was   ��15  18s   6d;   in February  it was  ��L4  13s  4d;   in March   ��13 7s 7d;   in  April ��12 8s 5d; and in May ��12 5s 6d  You sec there was a steady and persistent fall in the price of lead, and in the  prico of silver it was very much tho  same, and this hits us severely in two  ways, both directly and indirectly. Ore  has to be bought for the smelter;   it  is bought on the basis of price which  exists at the moment of the purchase.  The ore is then subjected to a process  which covers several weeks, and at the  _end_pf_that_time_the_product is_sold_on_  the basis of the price which exists at  the moment of sale. So that it is very  apparent that if between the date of the  purchase and the date of sale you have  a   persistent   drop   of  the  metal,   you  have not the basis for a yery profitable  undertaking. We estimate'that In a direct way we have lost this year over  ��10,000.  However,  it i3 probable that  indirectly this fall in the price has hit  us   even  more  severely.   Most  of you  know that for successful smelting it is  necessary  to   have  a  continuous   supply of low grade ore of a certain quality for fluxing purposes. If this supply  is in any way interfered with the loss  to   the   smelter   is   very   considerable.  The profit on  public lead smelting is  not so magnificent that the smelter can  afford   to  take  occasional  holidays.  It  is apparent that in order to make a  respectable  profit   the  work   must   be  continuous.   The  standing  charges  are  very high and they remain the same  whether the smelter is in blast or not,  while every day that the smelter stanls  idle means a .ery considerable loss. At  the time we commenced operations we  had contracts for a sufficient quantity  of dry ores, but in the sudden, and unexpected fall in the price of the metals  a   number   of  the   mines   which   were  working)  low   grade   ores   found   they  could no longer do so at a profit on account of the depression - in prices, and  consequently shut down, amongst them  a good many upon whom we were dependent  for  our  supply  Of   dry  ore3,  with the result that our supply, instead  of being constant, became intermittent  and irregular. As I have explained the  result  of  this  was  that  our  furnaces  were   constantly  being  blown   in   and  blown   out,   and   as   lar  as. profitable  smelting goes that means absolute disaster. Our smelting manager, Mr. Hedley, and our general agent, Mr. Campbell,  made very great efforts  to cope  with the situation, but with only partial success.  Here vou have in a few  words the cause of the failure of lead  smelting during the-; past financial year,  and I think it is encouraging to note  that with even these overwhelming difficulties the smelting department shows  a small profit.  "You must bear ii mird, too, in considering the situation, that the condition of things we have had to face has  been quite an abnormal'one, and it is  rot in the least likely' that we shall  ever be called upon again to cope with  Euch a steady and persistent fall in the  price of metals. However, you must remember that this is a risk which is inseparable from the smelting of public  ores, and it is a risk which we have to  take, at any rate, so far as the direct  loss is concerned; with regard to whit  I have called the indirect loss, that is  to say the loss arising from the shortage of dry ores, I think we can easily  safeguard ourselves against any repetition* of loss in that direction, whatever  the fluctuations in price may be in the  future. You must also bear in mind if  the  prices  were  to rise  in  the "same  manner  that, they have fallen  during  the past financial year our profit would  be correspondingly increased. Now, as  to  the future.  Our representatives on  the other side have ii. view an arrangement both as regards the supply of dry  ores and as regards the disposal of our  lead   bullion,  which  shows  a  marked  improvement   upon   the    arrangement  which existed hitherto, and as we have  now only one furnace running on lead  instead, of two, as has been the case  during the past financial year, it should'  be a comparatively easy matter to secure a reasonable amount.of dry ore to  keep  that  one furnace perpetually in  blast while the smaller furnace is at  work on our -own copper ore. Now I  want you to realize how very greatly  the starting of the copper smelting has  relieved the situation all round. It has  not only enabled the copper smelting  department itself to make a" very useful  profit, but it has enabled th? mine to  make what I think one may fairly term  ���something more than a useful profit It  has materially assisted the lead smelting depaitment by taking its proportion of the standing - charges and, removing  the  difficulty  which   has   existed during the past financial year of  finding a sufficient amcunt of fluxing  ores to keep the two furnaces perpetually in. blast. In this connection you  may note that during the three months  ending September 30th the profit from  smelting ' is estimated at ��4000, "whi.in  is * .considerably  better   than   anything  we did'during the past financial year,  so that as far as smelting-alone goes  I. think.the outlook is exceedingly favorable. , '  , ("I ..turn  from   the  smelting  to   the  mining  department,  and  here Jat  nny  rate I do not think there is the slightest need to introduce the -word failure  in 'any sense.  I think you will agree  with  me  that  the work at  the mine  since captain Gifford took it in hand  is really quite remarkable. At the time  we took the mine in charge there was  practically not a ton of ore in sight.  Active work at the mine was not begun before the installation of the new  .machinery, in January of this year, but  since that time up'fib"the 30th of Sep-'  tember, he has sent down 14,543 tons.  Now the" proceeds amountiig from the  amount . enfc down during the last fiscal  year, that is to say the 5000 odd tons  you   see   in  the  balance   sheet   befjre  you, were not so great for the reason  I have already explained. That amount  was not sent down with a view to profit,   but  was   sent  down  really  under  protest.  I  think  I may say  from the  mine manager, almost as a charitable  act  to  the lead  smelting  department,  in order to tide over the difficulties of  the  moment,  Now  since   the   30th   of  June, you will see from the report, 9300  tons of ore have been smelted and that  the net proceeds from this amounts to  nearly ��12,000. That you see is a very^  different result? When captain  Gifford  alludes   to  net  proceeds   he   does   not  mean    proceeds    after    deducting    all  working cxpeises; but we estimate that  after   deducting   working   expenses   at  the mine the net profit to the whole  concern on that figure is  ��12,500. We  hnve since received  a cable from the  mine manager that for the five weeks  ending  the , 25th   October   the   output  hns been 3864 tons, of an average value  of 27.32 ounces silver and 6.5 per cent  copper. These two periods overlap one  another to-the extent of a fortnight,  but  we  calculate  that  by   this  recent  cable from the mine manager, we may  add .��G000   r.et  profit  to   the   ��12,500  which you see appearing in the directors' report, making the net profit on  mining up  to  date   ��18,500  since the  first day of July. Of course you must  take these figures merely as  an  estimate;   they   are   merely   approximate^  and vou must not take them as absolute;'still  if is  impossible  that  they  can be very wide of the mark. I think  you will agree with me. that this is a  very  excellent  record,, and   I   do  not  think that too much credit can possibly  be given to captain Gifford for his masterly handling of the mine.  You will  see that on the 30th of June he estimates   19,900   tons   of   ore   developed*  Since that date he sent down 9.000 tons  of ore roughly speaking, which, would  leave 10,000 tons supposing that development work had not been vigorously  pushed in the meantime; but we know  development  has   been  pushed   vigorously during the whole of the time the  ore   has   been   extracted   for   smelting  purposes.  "This morning'a letter was received  '/from captain Gifford confirming the  cable which yon see. in the directors'  report. You will see in .the first line  of the cable from him 'estimated reserves of ore in stopes at date 1200  tons.' Wo have today received a confirmation of that by mail, and in thc  confirmation the figures appear as 12,-  000 instead of 1200 tons, and there is  not the slightest doubt but that the 12,-  000 tons is correct. You will see that at  that date that there were 12,000 tons  developed in addition to the 9000 tons  which have been sent down to the  smelter, and there is no doubt that at  the present moment there is still a further quantity developed; in fact I  think I am justified in saying that  there is not a single stope in our mine  that does not look better at the present  moment thau on ;he 30th of June. (Applause.) But of courso you must understand that the ultimate success of thc  mine as a lasting concern depends on  the cutting of tho ore body at the 9th  and 10th levels. The ore body in the  8th level, which is the lowest level at  present, shows - exceedingly strong,  which is as good an indication as we  could have that it lives down. It is of  course a dangerous matter to > prophecy  anything so uncertain as mining, but I  may say this much, that captain Gifford, whose calculations have been exceedingly correct so far, holds to the  opinion that che probabilities are  strongly in favor bf getting the ore  body at both these levels. I do not think  I have anything -further to say about  mining, and I now come to the figures  of the balance sheet. There you have  a groat mass of figures, and I ,do not  think it necessary for me to go into  any of these with the exception of one  item which it may be rather difficult to  understand. You- will see a certain adjustment of tho amount spent upon development during the year. I wish to  explain that. The amount spent upon  development during the year is ��24,-  728. The amount of ore developed during the year is, 25,143 tons, of which  5243 tons" were extracted and sent  down. The way we arrive at the proper  proportion of the amount spent on development to profit and loss and ��� to  development account is as follows: As  5243 tons, which is the amount extracted, is to the total amount developed, 25,143 tons, so is the amount  which we charge to profit and loss account to tne entire amount spent pn de-  ���velopment during the year.

'Mr." Hunter held.no' brief for anyone at the meeting,' and was" himself.' He  was a trifle sarcastic'in- some of his allusions. ;'He sald'ipolitics"made strange  bed-fellows. A.:B."McPhillips, M. P: P.,  who had always been, such a consistent  supporter of- competitive railways,- was  now falling ontheTieck'of-and weeping  over Richard' McBride,' M.P.P., who had  alwaysv been such a stalwart friend of  the C. P. R.r Gordon should have inject-'  ed'Smith Curtis into the'melo-dramaas  a player who,had strenuously reslstod  all attempts-to smother .theprovince beneath a load-of debt, incurred through  subsidizing railways. The truth of the"  matter Is, McPhillips and .McBride are  on tho same platform-today for wholly  different'reasons.'"McPhillips, a year  ago,'was talking-and voting against the  chartering of roads that would-connect  the Boundary .country with mining  camps in the state of Washington; roads  that when built would not cost the province a'dollar in money or an acre of land  in theway'of subsidies or grants; roada  that are actually being built today. Now  he is talking in favor of subsidizing  with millions-of money a railway,that  would; if< built, connect these same mining camps in the state of Washington  with the city of.Victoria. Mr. Phillips  may be able to explain to the people of  "Victoria why he has flopped; but the explanation could not possibly show that  he has -been consistent on the railway  question. -McBrido was, a year ago, a  momber of the "Dunsmuir government,  not because of his special knowledge o*  the business of thc ��� department over  which he presided, but because he was  an under-study of a man who was then  and is yet the attorney-general of the  province. It suited attorney-general  Eberts to have Richard McBride, who  represented' a- farming .district, made  minister of'mines, and he was so gazetted. As long as Richard was minister  cf mines he was in accord with the views  much he may - havo differed with th-?  views of - premier Dunsmuir. Because-  premier Dunsmuir saw1 fit. to select a.  much abler man-than Mr. McBride to-  fill a vacancy in-his cabinet, Mr. McBride resigned, presumably becauso premier Dunsmuir had gone outside of his-  party fer'assistance to run the govern*  ment," and this is just exactly what Mr.  McBride did a few days afterwards. In.  order to carry an election, Mr. McBride-  ealled on Smith Curtis,-who had beenl  his arch-enemy during two sittings of  the house, for assistance; and now he  and Smith- are beslobbering each other;  as'if tliey had been political friends all  -their-livesr-G-ordon���Hunter-was-right-  Politics does make strange bed-follows,,  and there are no stranger fellows occupying the same political bed in British Columbia than Richard McBrido and.  Smith Curtis.  From the Erst day of its publication,.  The Tribune has paid the highest wages.  paid in British Columbia. Its owners,  before becoming publishers, wero members of the typographical union. They  still believe in unionism, and r.o newspaper on the Pacific coast has been a more*  consistent friend of organized labor than  The Tribune. This friendship has not  been of.the ostentatious kind. Its owners do not go around with union labels'.  on their hacks, nor are such labels pretentiously printed in its columns. The-  wearing of a pin or badge or label means-  nothing moro than that the wearer-  wants to be recognized aa a member oi.  some particular order or lodge or society  or party. It docs, not mean 'that the<  wearer either believes in oo- understands-  the principles of-the particular order or  lodge or society-or party of which the.  pin or badge or lahel is au emblem. So-  with the use oi the union.label. Printing  iMn the1 columns of a newspaper does,  not mean that the newspaper displaying it believes in tha principles of unionism. The Rossland Miner ostentatiously  prints the union label on its editorial  page; but one would have to search the  editorial pages of that paper for months  back before anything j!a voring unionism  could be found. The Tribune does not  display the union label'for two reasons:  One is that tho Nelson Typographical  Union has not given its permission to-  use their label, and that right has no^  heen requested. The other is that The  Tribune expects to be supported on its  merits as a newspaper* and not because  its owners-and printctrs happen to be  members of any organization, cither  labor, fraternal, religioms, or political.

The bride is the  daughter of Thomas Jerome of this city  and the ceremony was. attended by a  large number of her friends. A number  of presents testified to the esteeem in  -which^the-bride-was-held-by-iriends.-  John Carmiehael, who has been put  in charge of the Edgewood dairy at  Fire Valley, has arrived at the dairy  property accompanied by his wife and  family. He brought out a car of stock,  grain and implement? and ��� will put  the dairy in shape as rapidly as possible with a view to securing the dairy  product business of the entire Kootenay district.  C. P. Hill arrived in Nelson yesterday  from Kitchener. He reports a deal as  having been made on the Morning Star,  a copper prospect located five and u  half- miles north of Kitchener. He says  a syndicate of London; Ontario, men  have taken a bond upon the property  and made their first payment of $2500.  Comparati /e]y little work has been done  on tho property and the showing consists of a 4-foot body of copper ore.  S. W. Hall of Rossland was in Nelson  yesterday on business connected with  the Cascade and Bonanza mining properties in the Boundary district, not  far from Gladstone. Mr. Hall's missbn  was to induce the C. P. R. officials to  put a short spur into the property to  facilitate shipments and in this he has  been.successful. The properties will be  in shape-to ship ten tons of ore per'day  throughout the winter. A contract has  been placed with the Granby smelter  for 500.tons and Mr. Hall had an'interview yesterday with the management of the Nelson smelter with a view  to making a contract with it. Mr. Hall  i* also superintendent of tho Iron Mask  property at Rossland, which has bean  closed down since last spring. He says  there is some talk of ai. early resump  tion of work at the Iron Mask.  Petition for Winding. Up Its Affairs.  W. A. Gallihor, M.P., returned from  Vancouver last evening with a budget  of the latest -i3ws from the Coast. He  says that in addition to the Nelson  cases already report 3d there was one  other matter before the court at Vancouver which has considerable interest  to the people of this-city. This was an  application tb the court for lhe ind-  iug up of the Athabasca Gold Mine,  which came before the chief justice and  was granted.  The petitioner' in the case was Edgar L. Weber of the city of New Westminster, who is the holder of a number  of shares in the company. This action  is said to have been taken with the  knowledge of a v umber of the Canadian  shareholders in the Athabasca with a.  view to^ defeating the proposed recoi-  f-truction which is said to be on foot,  in London, as it is said it will date from  the time'of the application for the order and not from the date upon which  the'drder was made. In the petition sup-_  porting the application for the winding  up of the coriipany it is. stated that the-  debts jof the company are in the" neighborhood of 150,000, the greater proportion   of, which   is   owing   tcT peiple*  in this province. It is further stated, as  believed  by  tbe 'petitioner,  that it is  the intention of the liquidator of the  Athabasca-,  -who   was   appointed- at  .i  meeting", of the company held in London on the 7th of August, to convey  the property- of the company to a new  company - to. be   formed,   which   new  company-will pay for the same by the  issue of stock assessable to the' extent  of five shillings or more on the pound,  which assessment if made will produce  .$125,000 or more. This call, it is set out,'  is excessive''and. unnecessary, and payment thereof will be beyond the means  of   many   of  the  shareholders   of  the  company,  and" that through failure to  make payment of such call such shareholders will Hose their interest in-the  company.   The   pftitiorer   further  sees  out his belief that in the event of the  company being wnmd up that its property could be, scld at a price which  would pay all of its indebtedness and  leave a considerable  margin  to  divide  among its Fliarehblders. ���'  The granting of the winding up order  by the ccurts will seem to set at rest  ASSIGNEE'S SALE.      -  Tenders are invited for the purchase of the  -stock in trade of ���Thoo.-Madson,-o_-Nolson,-B.LC.,-  consisting of clothing, boots and shoes, men's  furnishings, and chattels, and a tent and awning  factory, with canvas, tent hardware and sewing  machines, etc.  Tenders may be for tho wholo of thc stock in  trade or for any part thereof.

Locally the opinion seems to  be that the English shareholders are  arxious to proceed with reorganization  with sufficient assessment on the stock  to wipe out all liabilities and leave a  substantial margin for development  purposes, but that the Canadian, nhare-  holders are more concerned in getting  out of the concern without further loss.
