N. FORD  'POINTERS HOW THE DEPARTMENT SHOULD BE RUN.  -i -j  ^NEW   YORK,   November   17.���I.   N.  ord, in a special dispatch lo the-New  ork Tribune today, says:    I asked sir  tobcrt   Anderson   yesterday   how   ho  culd reform the New York police sys-  lin.    He replied that as a former as-  Istant commissioner of the metropolian police and the head of-the criminal  Intelligence department   he   could   not  fscuss with propriety the alleged scan-  ils of New York, but he might be jus-  Ined ' by virtue of official experienco in  Iplaining how any great center of pop-  lation could be provided with au hon-  pt and efficient police force.   It would  necessary to begin at tbe top and  ('cure  capable  and  iueorruptable  offl-  |als for directing lhe discipline of the  atire body and then go   all   the   way  own, weeding out incapable and dis-  onest   superintendents,   captains, .aiid  Inordinate   officials.   The  creation  of  la" ideal police force in uuy great city  lould be a gradual process and would  ���squire unceasing'vigilancc and pains-  liking care.   During his own experienco  It -Scotland Yard, he had witnessed a  Ireat improvement in the intelligence,  lapacity' and morale of "the - metropolitan police.    Like-every .other  branc__  Bf. service, the metropolitan force was  fcitirely out ofi politics.   Tlie force was  J'-scruited and maintained without ref-  luenco to political considerations.    No  "political manager had any control over  Jit.   Recruits joined it after a rigorous  ���examination and remained in it subject  Ito   good   conduct,  received   promotion  [when it was earned and a pension wheu  ithe limit of active service was reached.  [The standard of efficiency, of the Lon-  Jldon force had been considerably raised  ���/"during tbe last., quarter pf 'a* century.  VThe recruits were of a tbetter grado^in  ^'intelligence ,^and,'- education   and   there  'were" fewer infractions of ";the  regulations   for -sobriety   than '^formerly.    It  was an honest force, free'from scandal.  No -member of the force was allowed  >' to borrow money from a publican, much  my  less to take it as a bribe or gift. Even  the rewards for special service, which  'might be accepted  properly  from  any  class   except   publicans   or   criminils,  were reported to'the subordinate  officers,     and     higher     officials    decided  whether these could be retained.    Any  officer or man derh ing money from-a  gambling saloon or public house under  any pretence would bo M��xV*)ie to immediate dismissal  from the  force.    Sucn  incidents did not occur in London.   The  criminal   iutflligence   department    had  been reorganized -twenty-six ye-us ago  _on account of some irregularities, bu*c_  from that time the honest repute ofthe  entire service   had   never   been   called  into question.   He knew nothing about  the recent disclosures in New York and  was only prepared to discuss in general  terms a hypothetical case, but was con-  ' vinced that the organization of an honest and capable foice in any great city  "was a srlow and   laborious   process   of  weeding  out unfit men  and  gradually  raising the morale ond discipline.  BRITISH  POLITICS /  It rumor mongers can be trusted, two  [opposite processes aro now in progress  in British politics.   One is tho thawing  out and 'warming up of lord Rosebery  lu his lonely furrow.   Thc other is the  freezing out,of sir Michael Hicks-Beach  from the cabinet. Each process is delib-  , erate,  for lord  Rosebery had  deferred  i his political, deliverance'for  a month,  i and the chancellor of the exchequer is  answering the letters of corrcspou dents  respecting the sugar and coal duties as  they are   expected   to   remain   at   the  treasury    for    an      indefinite    period.  ["���Whether lord Rosebery has been chilled  |afresh by   the   iceberg   breath   of   sir  [William Vernon   Harcourt's   letters   to  I the Times is uncertain, but it is safe to  [forecast that a root and branch reform  ��� of tho administration   service   will   bo  Ithe   supreme   issue.     The   Shrewsbury  [speech of sir  Michael  Hicks-Beach  is  [credited by men in tho inner circle of  [politics Avith having frightened his col-  [leagues by tho revelation of financial  [proposals, so that everyone except lord  [Londonderry gave-him tho cold shoul-  Ider.   Whether he suggested loading uo  [American   millionaires   with   anywhere  [from ��25,000,000 to ��40,000,000 in con-  Isols, or sweating the income taxpayers  [with a largely increased rate, is a mys-  [tery.     Certainly   he   would   rot  have  icaused so much commotion by suggesting the doubling of the sugar tax, and  [presumably he can make peace with his  [colleagues' by assenting reluctantly to  Igivo cordial attention to the schedule  [of indirect taxation.  |    Generals Dewet and Botha are driv-  jlng nails into the free trads coffin. New  (tactics    from    Mr.    Winston    Spencsr  {Churchill are expected when parliament  [reassembles. He is reported to be form-  ling a small group of Tories which will  Itake an independent line in discussing  [military matters, and will stand on the  ^principle of economy. Mr. Broderick is  [preparing his  defemo  against the  at-'  I.tack by the Hooligans, as the group is  ���'called, by sending^relnforcements- from  llndia and Aldershot to the'seat of war  omy being a fresh letter, the treasury  watch dogs can only bark In front cf-  an empty cupboard. The burdens of war  have fallen heavily on the city, where  little money has been made on the  stock exchange. With a steady shrinkage of values in mining shares, brokers  and speculators complain bitterly of  stagnant markets and are in no mood  for attending meetings to support a  .government which conducts military  operations with l'ght driving power.  The revenue returns will disclose without doubt a shrinkage in the incomes of  the moneyed class and the morality of  millionaires has been exceptionally  light. A portion of ��12,250,000 which  the war is cofting weekly comes back,  as the Bradford district has increased  trade with South Africa on account of  an immense army requiring woolen  worsted goods. The cotton trade with  China and India is increasing and the  shipping business is fairly prosperous.  The iron and steel industries are sluggish. The great manufacturers are still  working on the problem of amalgamation and reporting"progress. The report  of the delegation headed by Ebenezer  Parks, which visited the United States,  will be a voluminous document of one  thousand pages and may help to revolutionize the iron and steel trade here.  * Tricks of the Rich.       [  BERLIN, November 17.���An eminent  medical practitioner in Beriln ' whose  fees for well to-do people are high, but  who gives two hours gratis daily to the  poor, has been victimized on a somewhat extensive scale. Under his apartments is a shoemaker's shop in which  well-dressed people have been incthe  habit of changing their clothes for the  rags of the beggar. As beggars -they  present themselves and their complaints to the physician who prescribes for them free. The shoemaker's  wife did a flourishing business until by  accident the physician discovered the  fraud and set the police to'work.  Brilliant Meteoric Shower. - * >  PHOENIX, Arizona, November 17.���  A meteoric t-hower of great brilliancy  and considerable length occurred here  early yesterday morning. The shower  continued half an hour and during that  timo, more than 200 meieors were  counted. / -    '  LOS ANGLES, California,- November  17.���The fall of leonids" was quite  marked in this city just before daylight. The display was at - one' "time  brilliant." One watcher 'counted -_. 385  meteors between 4 and 5 o'clock, while  the total cumber keen in this ��� city is  estimated at a-thousand.  WiLlr FIGHT THE SCHEME  Thinks Consolidation Unlawful.  WINONA, Minnesota, November 17.���  Governor Vaasant arrived from St  Paul last evening. When asked regarding lhe ir.corporation of the Northern  Securities Company in New Jersey he  made the following statement: "The  g-.eat railway deal in New York, having  Cor its object thc uniting of two great  companies���the Nort.iern Pacific and  the Great Northern ��� is a" matter of  gieat public interest; There is justly  wmupread oppositioi to it in our slate.  I. don't kuow whether it.can be preven  ted, but it is my intention to ask attor  ney general Douglas upon his return  to bring suit in the name of the state  to prevent if possible the consolidation  of the Great Northern and Northern  Pacific railroads. It is clearly in open  violation of the plain intent and purpose of the law. If under existing law  the consolidation cannot be prevented,  I feel that I would be justified in calling an extra session of the legislature  to take the necessary steps to success-  hilly resist it, if it can be accomplished,  by this means. Belitving it to be my  plain duty, I shall leave no stone unturned to prevent this consolidation."  Kaiser and America's Cup,  BERLTN, November 17.���The grand  marshal of kaiser's court, count Zu  Eulenburg, who is here, was questioned by the World correspondent today  about the report that the kaiser is having a yacht, built in Am'erica. "The  rumor is wholly untrue," the count  answered. "His new yacht will be built  in Germany. His majesty never intended to challenge for the America's  cup, nor, to my certain knowledge, will  the Kiel Club."  Murder Will Be Charged.  LEAVENWORTH, Kansas, November  17.���J. B. Waldrupe, a guard at the  Fort Leavenworth military prison, .who  was shot during the mutiny at that institution on November 7th, died today  of his wounds. Twenty-six mutineers  will now become liable to a charge of  murder.  Silver Coinage Prohibited  MADRID,   November  17.���The  Spanish senate has passed a bill prohibiting  silver coinage.  Skirmishes in the Philippines  MANILA, November 17.���Company  E of the Ninth infantry, caprain E. H.  SchoefCel, was attacked by fifty bolo-  men and several insurgents armed with  rifles at a point six miles from Taran-  guan in the island of Samar. The insurgents tried to rush the Americans, but  failing to accomplish their purpose,  they quickly brok. ond scattered. The  men of the Ninth had a corporal and  a scout killed and one private wounded.  Sixteen of the bolomeu were killed,  while th-3 riflemen escaped.  first infantry has been scouting for  several days* in Batangas province. He  had four serarate engagements with  the insurgents there. Judging from the  fighting on thoso occasions, captain  Halle estimates tin force'of each band  of rebels at from thirty to fifty. They  made an attempt to charge captain  Halle's party. Captain Halle's scouts  ieport the capture of one insurgent ofllcer and 50,000 pounds of rice.  Filipino president Deposy has been  sentenced by court-martial to the pei-  alty of death for the r.uider of certain  of his countrymen who favored the  Americans. Out of respect, however, to  the condemned man's calling and religious -body to which he belongs,  general Chaffee has commuted his sentence to twenty years' imprisonment.  Gone'al Chaffee desires It to oe understood that the leniency exercised in this  crse cannot be taken as a precedent  and that no person in the islands can  be permitted to plead his ^ office, however sacred and exalted this may be, ��.s  protection agairst crimes committed.  Chicago's Missing Ledger*?.  CHICAGO, November 17. ��� The  finance committee of the city council  has discovered the city's ledgers, covering its accounts from 1876 to 1884, are  missing. This was discovered in an investigation" of the sinking fund accounts, in which a discrepancy of more  than $2,100,000 was recently announced.  It is claimed that--previous administrations-have borrowed from this fund for  other corporate purposes and nonreturn  has been made of the amounts diverted.  MAY SUCCUMB TO OLD AGE  -Before a Settlement Is Reached.  SOFIA, Bulgaria, November 17.���The  brigands who abducted Miss Ellen M.  Stone, the American missionary, and  rradame- Tsilka, her companion, have  not yet replied tcthe latest'proposals  of Mr. Dickinson, diplomatic agent of  the United States in Sofia. This is believed to be due to the fact that the'  -band has'mary leaders and'that the  latter are unable to agree among themselves. There is a ge-ieral impression  h(re,that time is be'ig frittered away  while waiting for the brigands to re-1*  duce their demands. It is felt that the  cnly. means by which matters can be  brought to a head is to inform them as  to the-sum available''for ransom-'���-nd  declare that- this cannot be increased  for any corrideration- whatever. Such  an'ultimatum might endanger, the life  of Miss Stc--ie, tut it is improbable-that  the brigands ?vill accept this condition.  Besides every day's delay imperils -her  life, not so much on the score of the  brigands themselves but by reason of  the exposuie and strain she is undergoing.         -   ' ;  Great Britain and Mosquito Indian!).  LONDON, November 17.���The negotiations between ths _ governments of  Great Britain and Nicaragua with regard to the Mosquito coast have been  ^ery voluminous, but it is row beiieved  .Nicaragua can provide a' satisfactory  . guarantee for the protection, of the  ���natives aud enable Great Britain to  rid herself of a responsibility which  brings-with it no. advantage. The ques-  tiou of a suitable guarantee has been  chiefly responsible for the prolongation of the matter, lord Lansdowne,  British foreign secretary, insisting that  the Indians must be adequately protested. Beyond this point the foreign, office  displays 1-ttlo interest in the matter,  believing that Great Britain's rights on  the Mosquito coast are quite valueless  and no quid pro quo is boing sought  from Nicaragua.  . Ttie Concentration Camps.  NEW YORK, November 17.���According to the London correspondent of the  Tribune, as to the result of the publication of an elaborate report issued by  tho colonial -office in relation to the  concentration camps in South Africa,  Unionist papers pronounce the history  of the camps as most creditable to England, while the pro-Boer journals maintain that the moral of these disclosures is the unutterable criminality of  the policy of concentration. It is admitted in tho ieport that thero is an  irdiscriiuinate massing together of  people, of insufficient housing and covering, absence of warmth and poor rations. It is stated that the camp prisoners have been divided into two classes  and that people whose relatives have  been on commando have been put on  half rations. But tbis policy has since  teen abandoned, it is said.  Honoring Li and His Children,  PEKIN, November 17���The empress  dowager has issued an other edict eulogizing the late Li Hum; Chang and ordering the erection of a memorial arch  near his birthplaea The edict also  directs that the i.'irk of DiP.rquis, conferred upon the eldest son of the lata  Chinese statesman ii his own right.,  shall descend through 23 generations.

Seattle Passenger Agent Dead.  SEATTLE, Washington, November  17.���R. Q. Stevens, Great Western passenger agent for the Great Northern  railway, is dead as a result of a severe  cold contracted while attending the  duke and dushess of Yory festivities at  KNOCKS THE CITY  ATTEMPTING   TO   INTIMIDATE RATEPAYERS,  WANTS   TO   BE   IN   PBEPETUAL  BONDAGE TO THE W. E. P. & L.  . CO. OF BOSSLAND.    ��  The tramway company; is using its influence to secure the ratification of the  W. K. P. & D. Co. by-law, that, is to be  voted on tomorrow. - The reasons it  gives are such as could bo givei by  every'- enterprise in Nelson that i3  equaly .as .unfortunate as the tramway  company. That company made a bad  bargain with the W. K. P. & L. Co., and  the bargain will be bad for three years  longer; but that is no reason why the  people of Nelson" should go down. into  their pockets and give the W. K. P. &  L C several thousand dollars. The  tramway,company has been informed  time and again that the city would arrange to .take the power it is paying for  but not using off its hands, and pay for.  it at the rate per -horse power it is compelled to pay. But the invariable answer to this business-like proposition  has been:- "We cannot'-'do that; the  power company will"not/let. us sell our.  surplus power-to'the city."  Evidently,- the tramway company has  made   a bad r bargain- with   the-"-West  Kootenay, Power.& Light Company,- and  it now wants the city to do the same.'  -  Misery likes" company. ,t~ ���'-  Of what "real benefit would the ratification of the by-law- be'to the tramway  company? The < agreement under the  ���by-law is only for a year; at the end of  that time the'tramway company would  'be in the same bad plight that it is now  "in,-unless the city .-renewed "the agreement, .which, would require the passage  and ratification of another by-lav/. The  .only-salvation for the tramway company  is in the city getting'a power station of  {its>own on Kootenay river; then the  city would be in a position to help the  .company by giving it .power at the minimum of cost.' Yet, instead'of helping  ,the; city in that-direction the tramway,  company is doing, everything in its  power, through its -resident directors  and management, to thwart- the city in  that endeavor. Apparently they not  only want to be^dependent on the W.  K. P. & L. C. for all time, but they  want to get the City of Nelson in the  same dependent position.  To say the least, the management of  the tramway'company is acting as if  short-sighted, and the plea of poverty  should not be allowed to influence a single ratepayer.  There are enterprises in Nelsou doing  more for the town than' the, tramway  company, and who are losing as much  money as the tramway company is, yet  they have never petitioned the city for a  dollar in the way of charity, and never  will. Mendicants should have no place  _iiTNelson7"and_if"the-tramway-company  cannot operate without passing around  the hat every day in the year, the,sooner  it suspends operations the better it will  bo for Nelson.  Nelson does not want to be known as  the abiding place of non-paying enterprises, more especially enterprises that  were started with such a flourish of the  "possession of unlimited old-country capital as was the tramway company.  Cheap Blectioneering Dodge  Tho following circular is being mailed  ratepayers. The men whose names are  attached to it have had every opportunity tb enlighten the people of Nelson  on the question at issue; but have they  done so? Instead, they accuse the opponents of the by-law in question of  making vile insinuations against them.-  If Frank Fletcher, mayor, and John  Hamilton and W. G. Gillett and John  Paterson and Harold Selous, aldermen,  imagine they can bamboozle the ratepayers of Nelson by any such cheap electioneering dodge as the circulation of  the circular printed below they are mistaken.  POWER BY-LAW NO. 101.  Dear Sir: The undersigned beg to  remind you that the vote on this bylaw takes place on Tuesday, the 19th  instant.  This by-law is introduced and favored  by the majority of the present council,  simply and solely to provide consumers  with good and efficient electric light.  The conditions of tho electric light  service prevailing the last two winters  will bo fresh in the memory of all.  Do you wish for a similar condition  this coming winter?  This by-law represents tho best terms  the council have been able to obtain,  after much effort and investigation.  This by-law has been violently opposed, not by means of argument, but  by carping criticism and vile insinuation against the undersigned.  Any attempts at argument on the part  of the opposition arp so evidently appeals to prejudice or such obvious misstatements, as to be quite unworthy of  reply.  The undersigned beg to again remind  you that thc vote takes place on Tuesday the 19th instant, and are respectfully. FRANK FLETCHER,  Mayor.  JOHN HAMILTON,  W. G. GILLETT,  JOHN PATERSON,  HAROLD SELOUS,  Inmate of an Insane Asylum. *  LONDON, November 17.���Miss Helen  Vanderbilt-Wackerman of New York,  who was taken to St. Giles infirmary  Wednesday as a wandering lunatic and  was privately examined there by a justice of the peace, is spending her days  within the walls of a workhouse in one  of the grimiest part of London. Sho is  an inmate of the.insane ward, where  her companions with one exception are  decrepit old women, suffering from senile dementia. The exception is a  wealthy and well connected English  woman, who was brought in the day  after Miss Wackerman's arrival, suffering from a somewhat similar complaint,  which in Miss Wackerman's case is diagnosed as melancholia. She will remain in the care of the authorities until  Noyember 28th, by which time it is  hoped some of her relatives will have  reached London. The United States  consulate is now watching over Miss  Wackerman's interests.  Bubonic Plague Checked.

A BUSY MINING DISTRICT  )  ,   ,150 Men Working in Flat Creek.  NORTHPORT Washington "November " 17.���[Special to - The Tribune.]���  Superintendent Frank Davis of 'the  Copper Mountain Mining Company,"was  in-town this morning on his'way to  Rossland, where he will undergo an operation for the removal of a cancer  which has been forming on his-lip. The  Copper Mountain Company are operating- the Wheeler group on Copper  Mountain,(l Flat creek' district. Mr.  Davis gives the following information:  "Our main ^working shaft is now at a  depth-of 210 feet and we intend to continue it-down to the 300 foot level. A  crosscut at the 150 foot level showed the  ledge'to be 54^feet.in width at that  point. The values'are copper "and gold  and we have' received assays running  up to $60, but that is by no means an  average. Where there is such a large  body of ore the greater part of it is  usually very low grade and it is so with  our property. The foot wall is a mica  schist and the hanging wall is a dio-  rite." When asked as to the general  conditions on Flat creek. Mr. Davis  said. "Work is in progress on every  property in the camp and there must  be at least 150 men at work in the Flat  creek district. Manager Z. D. Brown  has two shifts at work on the Bullion  group on Blizzard mountain and a very  encouraging showing is reported from  the property. The Colville Mining Company is doing considerable work upon  their property, near the Flat creek store.  Sup"erihtend"ent~Johif_Hdpe_Has_a_]arge_  force at work on the Buckhorn. E. E.  Owen is working on a contract at the  Churchill. The Globe Goldfields Mining Company is also doing corsiderable  development on its Flat creek properties. The Dardanas Mining Company is  doing considerable work near the boundary line and the British Lion Mining  Company is working a full crew of men  on some claims just across the line.  The Morning Star, on the American  fork of Sheep creek, has 12 men at  work and will probably put in a com-  presor plant in the near future. Quite  a number of properties are also working on Fifteen-mile creek. Altogether  the eastern half of the Colville reservation is booming and prospects wero  never better for the district than they  are today."  Ore ar>d Bullion Shipments.

Captains Brouards has  _pent the past five years in the Arctic  regions on a prospecting and exploring  expedition. He has visited all sections  fiom Kotzebue sound to the shores vof  the Arctic ocean and has compiled a  chart of the coast from Kotzebue sound  to Point Hope. According to captain  Brouards, from the northern shores of  Kotzebue sound to the Arctic ocean, a  distance of 300 miles, is one immense  bed of bituminous coal, and ho says  theie is enough coal in sight to supply  the world for many years. It is but very-  little value for steaming purposes but  for "household purposes is all right.  Winnipeg News Items.

A brakeman named Hudson fell from  a freight train in tho railway yards hero  last night and met instant death. Deceased was well known in railway circles.

Those   present  maintained   subsequently the strictest sjlence concerning  the new evidence laid before them and"  their evident anxiety helped to confirm  the rumor of conspiracy. Captain Cor-'.,  rigan took a train back across the border next morning, while United States  marshal Shoups embarked on the first-  steamer   for   Seattle,   which   port   ho  reached several days ago.

London Stock and Money Market.  LONDON, November 17.���In spite of  various happenings following in which1 V  a rise in stock exchange quotations waa  confidently predicted, the condition of  affairs at the end of the week has not  materially improved. Neither the Northern Pacific nor the Franco-Turkish, -  settlements, the cheerful speeches of  lord Salisbury and Mr. Broderick, nor  the lack of serious news from South Africa served to impart tho promised upward movement on the exchange. Up  to the present time the- cable advices  have failed to satisfy operators as to exactly what the Northern Pacific settlement means and the published details  had rather "a depressing effect. Critics  point out that the gold shipments from'  the United States indicate that New  York resources are decidedly strained,  considering the magnitude of various  financial projects afoot in Wall street,  consequently the members of the London stock exchange are Inclined to hold  off rather than stake anything upon a.  tentative motion.  President Roosevelt enters somewhat  into London's calculations. The rumors of stringent anti-trust measures  which would break up many of the existing combinations result In the presi-1  dent's message being awaited here with  keenest anxiety. In the meanwhile  money is by no means plentiful. Discount rates are steady. The actual transactions on the stock exchange were in- x  significant. Home rails were dead and  mining shares almost all declined fractionally. Industrials generally suffered  in sympathy with tho tobacco war,  which is daily assuming a more bitter,  aspect.

James  M.  Keilie  ot  Revelstoke  and  Prairie Mountain, one of the most broad-  minded  and self-sacrificing of men,  a  man who poses as being for Kootenay  .first, last, and all the time, has this to  say of a section of Kootenay that helped  place him in an honorable position in  1S90,  and whose people,  iu the years  that have followed, have time and again  defended him when he was assailed by  his political enemies:     "Nelson riding  '* mining camp is a graveyard of baffled  ." aspirations,- baulked ambition, ruined  " prospects, blighted hopes, and wasted  " treasure, grid-ironed with a plethora  " of railway lines,   wagon   roads,   and  " trails, that afford cheap and competi-  '" tive transportation, enjoying the ad-  ," vantage cf a smelting reduction works  " within its boundaries, with the invest-  " ment of millions in capital in its num-  " erous ledges, combined with years of  " hardship   and   toil   by  thousands   of  " miners   and   prospectors,   how   many  " self-sustaining,  productive,   and  divl-  ���' dend paying mines has it got to its  " credit? and per contrast, how many  " abandoned    shafts,    deserted    drifts;  " gopher cross-cuts,  and yawning pot-  " holes adorn its mountain slopes ?   Like  " the stars     of  the heavens  they are  " beyond  computation.    What  a  great  "record has Nelson riding made as a  " fleld for lucrative investment in min-  " ing properties, that its representative  " should feel warranted in casting slura  "on North Kootenay?"    Hew low-can  the mighty fall!   Tho mighty and hon-  .   The   people   of   Nelson." riding , have  never truckled to" those in power; their  representatives   have   not   traded   on  their    official    positions;     for     every  dollar   that   has -been1 spent   within  the    riding' for" public-  works,    the  money    for    such L" expenditures * was  contributed by the people* who live in  the riding.   There has-been failures and  mistakes and losses ln"inlning ventures,  as there has been-in-every district in  the province; yet^the mines in tl}e district have kept pegging away, and every  year shows an increasodf'output over  the previous   year.,, "The�� district "has  mills and smclterst/b'ut none "of them'  hvere built" as' real estate"spe'6ulalions or  to boom townsited. "l Nelson" district has  mines that pay'dividends, 'and, it is not  unlikely that the'number will decrease.  Every mine" in 'Nelscn" riding that pays  V dividend'helps other mining districts  ;bf the province.'   The' riding has railways, ali'o'f which are operated, it is to'  .be lhoped;*~at a 'profits' None' of thasc  railways are'local';  all are" portions'of  systems that-benefl't-other ridings besides Nelson.    It has" numerous road3j  and trails; the cost of .which was largely  borne by prospectors and by men who  [developed   or . are   working   developed"  mines.-   No riding in the province' caa  show as^good. a record in this respect.  Nelson riding has towns and' villages,  whose people make an effort to care for  .themselves, arid it has the one ,city in'  the province that is not continually begging the. provincial government for' appropriations for school houses arid"bther  purposes.   The people of th'e riding try  to keep in.the lead, but that is a common  'fault;' if they have ^succeeded in  that  respect   better   than    their    neighors,  surely  they are  entitled  to   words' of  praise, tot villiflcation.for their enterprise and self-reliance.    The people of  Nelson-ridiiig-are-not-asking^for-ani'-  advantages over the people of any, other  section of Kootenay.or of the province;  and they will see to it, through' their  representative in the local legislature,  that no other section gets any advantages over them.  to  to  to  to  to  to!  *!  to 36 Bakep Street, Nelson.  . ���ifl^_:   '* ___.   ���,  ���      -'    -   --*_���*. - ^c.   ,.- "- -**���*��'*���;  ^^W'-iSfi't*'���*' <2i^'���*'j��-_'<S?-<H^V-_B__ ��� flf ���**��� **'0*��� ^'^��� ^���   vi\ ��� ^��^*�� ^���JS*.- ^���5ft* '"���*��Ss-^J*���S^'^*J2&*^^*^2^*^&*J2S>��rf�� t  w * p^fc* **^^fe^ ^tBt** 4)^0^ ^^m^^^^00^B^F*^&&?

The  above  are * fair  samples' of public men who are held  up as consistent and upright members  of the legislature by newspapers like the'  .Vancouver World.  ,   The   Mackenzie   &   Mann   newspaper-  organ in Vancouver; the Wcrld���a news-  raper   that   supported   lhe" old   Davie-"  Turner regime arid afterwards supported  Joseph Martin's administration���is boiling mad -because premier Dunsmuir is  believed to have the support of a major-/  ity of'the members of the legislature.  It rages because certain members refuse  to go into hysterics over a suppositious  political crisis, and refuse to prance up  and   down  the  country  declaiming  in  favor of'the V. V. & E. subsidy.   The  piovince has   had   too   much   schoolgirl politics and too many Huckleberry  Finn oath- bound pledges made' by men  elected  to  conduct  the affairs  of the  province for the best interests' of the  greatest number of people.    Instead of  working for the greatest good to the  greatest  number,  a  good-sized faction  of the legislative assembly, led by Hei-'  mcken and McPhillips cf Victoria- and  Curtis of Rossland, is working to secure  a large-sized subsidy   for   cne   special  railway, urging as a reason for doing  so, that the building of that particular  railway  will   give  competitive  railway-  facilities to a section of country now  wholly without railway facilities.   It is'  not a fight to give any particular company  the  right   to   build   a   railway  through that particular section, for three  companies have that right; but merely  a fight to grant a subsidy of millions to  one. particular  company.    This   object  is sought to be gained by men, like Helmcken and McPhillips of Victoria, who  a year ago opposed granting charters to  any railway that entered territory clairii-  od by the C. P. R.     A year ago,' Smith  Curtis would have no railways built unless built in such a way that the government- would have absolute control ovei*  them, now he, like Helmcken* and Mc  A' yeax^ago^ a foni was-introduced iri  the legislature'to incorporate the Lake  Benn&t'^'Railfyay Company;'a' company  that intended1^to build, a railway from'  Dyeavto a point' on- the 'Yukon river.  The "road'if'built would-have givon the  peopleiof'Dawson'and^the Yukon country,   competitive   transportation' facilities.'    The - company ; was - riot - a skirig  forja subsidy" In either land or money,  "lts'buildiri'g^would not /have" cost 'the'  province a dollar. ��� When built" it would  have given "the business men of, Victoria  and Vancouver' a' competitive system-of  [transportatiori^into a section'of country"  iwhose tfade'is1 theirs naturally.*  But  how-did the men vc>te who are now posturing as-being in^favor of competitive-  railways?      Messrs.     Helnicken",    Mc-"  Phillips,  Hall,  Hayward,^ Garden,- and'  Murphy-voted against the second read-  'ing of the bill, and the second reading  was defeated by a vote of 25 to 8.   Were"  >the .six   men  nairie'd^abpve^h'oriest  in  1890 iri placing themselves", on record as  being, opposed <to ��� coiripetitive railways  when "the competition 'would' not'- cost ���  the province a dollar? If they were, .how"  "can 'they >now be classed as" honest and  consistent in clamoring'for competitive  railways, when'.the'railway a are to be  built, by the aid* of^ large subsidies in  money  from  the  provincial  treasury?

NEW    YORK,    November    17.���The  [Tribune today publishes the following:  \a cable message to the Tribune from  |Erzeroum, Turksy, last night announces   the  partial   destruction  by  earth-  [qualco of that old city, with a loss of  several  lives.   Tho. dispatch,  which   is  signed by Mr. Stapleton, and American  [missionary, is as follows:  "Ezoroum, Turkey, was visited by an  earthquake. One thousand houses were  Idcstroyed and fifteen "hundred damaged,  lit 'is known  that several were killed.  Fifteen   thousand   people,   who   have  leen driven to huts for shelter, are in  iced of immediate relief. The winter is  coming oii severe. Contributions can be  remitted to thc American Bible House,  3onstantinoplc. One hundred and fifty  Hhoiu.and dollars are needed for immediate relief."  Erzeroum is the chief city of Armenia  |in Asiatic Turkey, the capital of a district of the'same name, and is situatsd  3n a large elevated plateau on the "west  branch   of   the   Euphrates   river,   155  liles west"of Mount Ararat. It is part-  ny enclosed by a wall -thirty feet high  ind has an extensive citadel. The population   is   estimated   at   from   60,000  ���to-100,000. Erzeroum was founded about  1415 ritear the cite of thc ancient Arize,  ���under the name of Theodcsicpolis and  was the bulwark of Armenia under the  [Bysantines. The Turks regarded  it as  lan''important .military post. The win-  |*qr and'spriug climate is severe. '  Ireland's Donnybrook Exhibibtor.  DUBLIN, November 17.���The fight  betweon the Horace Plunkett and Arthur Lynch factions, as a result of the  parliamentary contest in Galway, was  renewed last right The" Lynchitcs"  stormed the Unionist headquarters and  further demolished thc doors and win-  kOows. Numbers'of persons were'injured  and in several cases heads, were split.  Colon'el Lynch has not yet appeared on  the scene and is not expected. The Nationalists assert that if the colonel is  elected he will be smuggled inside the  house of commons to take the oath  and then "face the music" if accused of  treason for fighting in behalf of the  Boers. 'John Dillon is activelv campaigning against Mr. Plunkett. His object, it is alleged, being to cause Mr.  Plunkett's retirement from the Irish  agriculture and industries department:,  which would probably follow his defeat.  'Mr. Dillon's attitude is in a line with  his denunciation of John Redmond because the latter so warmly supported  Mr. Plunkett's project for regeneration  of agriculture ln Ireland on the parliamentary committee whose labors result-  \���ed_ln_the-formation-of-a^new��� department.  Mayor Broke the Law.  OTTAWA,      November      17.���Mayor  Morris     yesterday    morning     nleaded  .guilty to a charge of having purchased  liquor at the Russell house during prohibited hours and was fined ?5. The conviction disqualifies the mayor from occupying a municipal position for two  years.    The mayoralty chair thus  be-  ��� comes vacant. The mayor in pleading  guilty admitted lhat the actswas committed through ignorance of the law,-  but thought the charge was leveled  more against reform by depriving him  of his seat, the punishment which foi-'  loweu conviction, than for vindication  of the laws. The charge was laid by  the police department, the head of  which, chief Powell, hus been at loggerheads with the mayor ror some months  past.    Late Stories of President McKinley.  Stories about president McKinley are  f now being collected from every oossible  source^ _The result is a most Interesting  and varied* illumination of a well-loved  character.     Among   the  newest  anec-  |* dotes collected are the following:  An intimate friend, with whom he was  chatting one day on the subject of his  | will, remarked upon the smallness of the  pi esident's estate, whereupon Mr. McKinley said: "No. I don't leave much,  but what I do leave was honestly acquired, -for if never cost anybody a  tear nor ray country a penny."  A number of senators wero talkiag on  [the different forces and powers of the  world, and the conversation drifted to  | the subject of the heads of states.  "I don't envy any one of them that  l power which Providence has given to  them," said the president,' "but there  is one thing of which 1 may be allowed  j to boast, which is, I fear no man.    I  (fear neither the "revolver of the burg-  jlar. nor the spleen-, of, an injured citizen"���a curious and patnetic sentiment  | in the light of what occurred at Buffalo.  Mr. McKinley was a careful reader;  [he slowly digested every line and every  sentiment printed and expresssd; that  no doubt was  the effect of his legal  graining.   He cared little for fiction, but  rone day: a friend caught him reading a  [licpular novel and expressed surprise.  "Well," said Mr.  McKinley,  "there's  jmpre reality about fiction than there is  tabout: fact, and vit; takes; me longer to  B   E. Walker,  General Manager  London Ofiice, 60 Lombard Street. B. 0.

Loubet, president of the French Republic, Mi*. McKinley's mother shook her head doubtfully when she was congratulated oa  her son't. accession to the highest position in>the country. I had rather my  William were a Methodist bishop than  anything else in the world," she said.  The lato president was in his early  life intended for the ministry. When a  lad of "sixteen his brother David, who  was the superintendent of a coal mino,  came into the room where Williams was  studying his Latin grammar and peremptorily ordered klm'to harness his  pony by a certain time in order toj-jo to'  -a dance.  When he,had gone William turned  round on his aunt and sai.d:  "Aunt, don't you think it is humiliating for a Methodist>to have to hitch up a  hoise for a .brother to go to a dance?"  A smart'" young lady, on seeing the'  president rising 'to leave church after  the service was over, broke all precedent and, standing upon one* of tho  benches, waved her lace handkerchief  and called out, "Cheers for the President!", ,The cheers thundered put in the  sacred edifice, and the president acknowledge them ���\yith becoming gravity.-  "*��� Mahotastanism in the Philippines.  Mahomctanism has taken root in the  Philippines. 'Within two months"time  the religion of the Crescent'has been  securely established aud_ the 5 strength  of Christianity shaken, not in Manila alone but over the entire archipelago. Er.im Nabckofl, perhaps the most  remarkable missionary in thc world, and  seven societies, arc responsible lor the  present startling, state -of affairs The  fact 'that ?4O,C'0O per month has' already  been expended and that the International Moslem Union has authorized the future expenditure of $1,000,000 a year indicates with what zeal the Moslems are  ���woiking. '       ' : -���-   v~      > ,  ' The mission at present includes three  Americans, threo Filipinos and'two Malays���thc Americans are Emm Nabokoff,  its manager; Mohammed Lant, its literary manager, and Ali Price, Its organizer. The Filipinos are Abdul Forces,  expounder "of the Koran; Othman Va-  donos, editor of La Creclonte, the organ  of tho mission, and Ahmed Cousino, assistant organizer. The Malays' are  Chowdri Nabi Nakhsh, correspondent of  the Ludl.iana, India headquarters of the  International Moslem Union, and Moulvi  Mohammed Barakat-UUah, correspondent of thr* Singapore branch of the International Moslem Union, which is subject to the Ludhiana headquarters, over  which Hamid Snow, a Eurasian Moslem, presides. With this branch support thc Philippine mission will when  necessary call to its aid all Mahometan  India. NabokofE, lhe leader, is a remarkable man. He is a Russian by birth,  and having received an ecclesiastical^ education, was, wbreTT_a^>^unir~mXn7_aJF  pointed Bishop of Alaska by the Russian government to atone for its injustice in abandoning his brother, Captain  Nabokofi, to the mercy of the Bulgarians. After two years in Sitka, Enim  became a convert to Islam, and later  a naturalized American. For some  years he conducted a Muhometan mission in New York. Since then he has  traveled over the world, his rare linguistic prowess enabling him to do effective missionary work in every country.  The three principles which the Moslem  teachers chiefly insist upon at present  are said to be the abolition of slavery,  and doing away with usury and a wariness as regards new converts. Poly;  gamy is ignored by the missionaries",  who are aware that this feature of  Mahometauisnr would be repugnant to  the Filipinos.  ,      L  ���  Career of an Outlaw  The career of the most picturesque  outlaw in American^ history has lately  been foicibly recalled by thc discoveries  mado near Cave-in Rock, in Hardin  county, of probably the greatest deposit  of kaolin in ihe world. Half a century  ago Cave-in Rock was tlie home of John  Murrel, the shelter for his countless  dimes. For more than twenty years  the Illinois bandit defied the law from  his subterranean stronghold. Many lives  and many hundreds of thousands of dollars were the tribute levied on the countiy by Murrel and the gang that ho so  adroitly organized and masterfully  ruled. For years the government vainly  attempted his capture. At length with  a price on his head of $50,000, and the-  entire country demanding to be rid of  him, he was betrayed by one of his own  followers and treacherously shot.  ���_ Murrel's aeloption of his criminal career was deliberate. Of gentle birth, hi3  boyhood was quietly passed on a Louisiana plantation. Then tho desire came  to him to accumalate millions. The ordi-  r.ary avenues to mercantile success he  passed by as uninteresting and chose instead a safe and comfortable form of  piracy to he practiced on the Ohio and  Mississippi rivers. At that timo, 1X20,  these rivers swarmed with flat boats  laden with all manner of produce and  manufactured goods, sometimes bearing  quantities of gold and silver coin and  other government valuables. It was  Murrel's first move to organize a band  of forty picked men."   At Cave-In Rock  ilVIPErfiAL BANK ��� ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^sfc^  Capita!

From a  long corridor filled with wonderful sta-  lactities, deceptive passages Di'anch off  at frequent intervals. Murrel's own  room was reached by a ladder. Miles of  undergrown passageway would serve  now as then to bewilder the unimtoatsd  hopelessly. One of these routes, however, led over a distance of thirty miles  to Equality, Gallitan county. This provided an infallible escape for Murrel and  his confederates.  In the long interval between 1820 and  1S50 hundreds of boats were captured by  the gang, their own men placed in  charge, and the boat's crew and passengers held prisoners in the cave while  the pirates took the cargo south, assumed the real owner's name, sold out the  contents and returned to the cave with  the booty. Not infrequently would the  captives bo released later to return as  best they could to their homes.-A pretty  and winsome lady-was alwaj'3 a prize for  the outlaws, and a number that lived and  died in the cave with the gang will never  be known. v <i  .

T. A. Mills is  gazetted a deputy in the office of the  court registrar at Nelson.  Frank McQuaid of San Francisco who  'is largely interested in the Maple Leaf  Mining Company, arrived in Nelson last  evening. IL is reported, the company  will commence work upon a property  which it has in behind Pilot Bay. It is  not likely that anything will be done  on the Maple Leaf property, after which  the company takes its name.  William Lyon MacKenzie King, the  grandson of the famous Ontario rebel,  arrived in Nelson yesterday from Rossland. Mr. King is the editor of the official labor gazette and deputy mlnlstBr  of labor. He has been in Rossland for  the * past few days looking into the labor trouble, but declined to make any  statement for publication until he has  sent in his report to the minister.  Mayor Fletcher and aldermen Hamilton, Gillett, Paterson, and' Selous have  placed themselves on record as branding those who oppose the W. K. P. &  L. Co. by-law as vile slanderers. It is  a pretty come to pass when the people  of Nelson have not the right to oppose  a scheme that happens to be framed  by these five woithies. Is all the intelligence and all the honesty of purpose  of the people of Nelson ��� concentrated  in their five heads? If so, God help  Nelson.  Many by-l��ws have been submitted  to the people of Nelson for their ratification, but the mayor and aldermen  who favored the by-laws never found  it necessary to issue and mail circulars  to propei ty owners on the eve of the  day of election advising them what to  do. The rule has been broken, however,  and mayor Fletcher and aldermen Hamilton, Gillett, Paterson, and Selou3  have so far forgotten the dignity of  their positions as to cause their names  to be attached to a cheap electioneer-?  ing circular, in which an attempt Is  made to dragoon property-owners into  ihe support of a very questionable  scheme. .  The men who have the preliminaries  in hand in the work or organizing a labor party, in this city report gratifying  success  and   it   is  thought   that  the  meeting to complete organization and  week. The membership for voting purposes will be by ticket at the first meeting. These tickets are sold for a nominal sum and their purchasers aie rt-  corded as members of the organization.  Tho object ol those who have lhe inove-  ���i out in Land is u. unite the h:.slniFS  men and toilers whose sympathies are  with the lnboi party but who have rio  connection with it through the ordinary agencies such as trades unions.  As a result of the decision of the full  court on the appeal in the case of Hall  vs LaBau, the hearing of the case will  require to be gone over again. When  the case was-adjourned by judge Forin  the case for the plaintiff was completed and a start had been made on the  case for the defense, but by a decision  of the full court the plaintiffs are saddled with all - costs up to date, and  when these are paid they will be just  where they were when their action was  started. The appeal did not touch on the  merits of the case, but dealt simply with  a ruling of the trial judge upon the de-  fondant's application to amend his de-.  fense.        ' -     ��� ��  Percy. Chapman, of the A. Macdonald  Company, - has, returned from Vancouver, where he has been for the past  three weeks in connection with the letting of the contract for the new warehouse which his.company has decided  to put up. The' building is now well under way and it is expected that it will  be completed by the middle of Marcn.  It is 50 by'100 and three stories with  basement, containing all told , 20,000  square feet of floor space. The building  "will have a cut stone front, the flrst  story being of granite and the rest  sandstone. It is likely that the meeting  of the retail and wholesale grocers,  which has been delayed on account of  Mr. Chapman's absence, will be called  within the next few days and an effort  made at determining where th�� line  shall be drawn between the wholesaler  and tne retailer.
