SUFFOCATED IN A COLORADO MINE.  SMUGGLER UNION WORKS AT TELLURIDE THE SCENE OF A  TERRIBLE DISASTER.  forged name of E. S. Fox and indorse 1  by the name of Walter Pearsons, for  $13.25. He is 3S* years old and says lie  lias been traveling since his wile left  liim at Cincinnati. ''Call me a blackguard," said he, "I have lost all claim  to respect. I am related to the old English family of Neville, and that's why  1 sometimes assume that name." He re-  fHsed to give any further details.  TELLURIDE, Colorado, November 21.  .���Nearly 100 men were probably suffocated to death in the Smuggler Union  miue in Marshall basin as the result  of the fire which consumed the buildings at the mouth of the Bullion tunnel. Twenty-two miners are known to  be dead and scores of others are either  dead, or seeking safety in the remote  parts'of the mine until the place shall  bo   cleared   of   foul   gases   and  smone.  Fire broke out in the tramway bunk-,  house at the mouth oi tne Bullion tunnel, the principal opening from which  the   property   is   worked;,   andj  spread  rapidly to the boiler and engine house  and   blacksmith   shop.   The   tramway  terminal,  with its gieat ore bins, and  sev-eral   smaller   buildings,  were   soon  wrapped in flames. A strong draft blew  the smoke from the burning buildings  directly into the tunnel; and the mile  of drifts,  upraises and stopes connecting with jt began to fiill rapidly with  smoke.  In the excitement of trying to  control th'e fire on the outside buildings  the mine was forgotten and before the  situation   was   realized   the   workings  were fast filling "with" dense smoke. By  this time the buildings about the mouth  of the tunnel were all ablaze and nothing could be done to stop thc smoke  from going in. As soon as it was possible-great bodies of rock were blown  down  into  the  tunnel  mouth and  the  opening stopped, but not until the workings had been filled and the smoke was  working its way through thc shafts to  the surface, a mile or more up the mountain from  the  tunnel  houses The  day  shift, somo 200 men, had gone into the  mine and reached their stations before  the fire started. It is known that some  of   the'men   escaped   through  the" old.  Sheridan tunnel and also through the  eld    Union    workings,    but    they    are  thought to have been the small part of  the force in  the mine.  The  Smuggler  Union is the largest mine in the Telluride district,  the output being about  two-thirds of the total from the camp.  Only a meager report of the disastrous  fire at the Smuggler Union mine near  Telluride, .Colorado,  has  been received  by  the local  oflicers  of the  company.  It   is   not   known   here   this   morning  whether the loss of life will reach 100.  as feared, or whether any bodies havo  been found in addition to the 22 which  were recovered and identified last night.  The damage caused by fire and the loss  of buildings is estimated at $18,000, but  the mine will have to be closed for at  len.l a month.  Persons who came into town today  from tho Smuggler Union mine, four  miles distant from Marshall Gulch and  the mountains, said the workers had almost abandoned hope of finding any of  the imprisoned men alive. Every entrance to the property is the scene of  active work and in vain repeated attempts are made to enter the mine. The  men are . forced back helpless and  strangling from the foul smoke which  fills the tunnels and levels. Notwithstanding the dangers and difficulties  the officers declare the efforts will be  continued until every body has been le-  '-covered and v/ill be hastened as-rapidly  as possible in the hope that many may  be found alive. Telegraph and telephone  wires were destroyed by the fire and the  only means of communication is by  messenger.  DENVER, Colorado, November 21.���  At a late hour today twenty-three bodies  all told have been recovered from the  Telluride mines. An attempt was made  today to enter the ninth tunnel north,  but on account of. the density of tho  smoke it was impossible to do so. It is  stated by "one of the officei'S of the company that.only three or four men are  missing and that the total number of  dead will not exceed twenty-five.  Later.-���The number of victims of the  terrible disaster in the Smuggler Union  mine "yesterday is now said to be 29  witli a considerable, portion of the mine  yet unexplored. Besides the twenty-two  bodies taken out and identified- last  night, seven were located this Afternoon  iii-the north end ofthe ninth level, but  the gas is still too strong to permit the  searchers to reach them and their identity is unknown. -  Grief Made Him Turn Forger  INDIANAPOLIS, November 21.���John  "Verrall, the Englishman who walked into the police station last night and, after  admitting $12,000 worth of! forgeries  committed in varic-us parts of the country, said he wanted to give himself up,  told the policemen he had lost his wife  two years ago and since that time he  had "gone bad." He gave a dozen  names used in various cities in embez-  rlement and forgery, ni admits embezzling $300 from manager W. N. Mayers of the Western Newspaper Association of St. Louis. The forgeries for the  most part have been in small amounts.  fie turned oyer a. check signed by the  Built England's First Locomotive  ST. LOUIS, Missouri. November 21.���  Captain John Lawson, who built th^  first locomotive engine in England and  who was the oldest engineer in the  United States, is dead here. Captain  Lawson was born in Manchester, England, August Sth, 1805. When still a  boy he was apprenticed.to George Stevenson, the inventor o�� the locomotive  engine and under his direction built  the first engine. He served as a locomotive engineer on the various railroads in the country for many years,  principally in the east and south, abandoning the line of work to. go into the  steamboat business. He made a fortune  in the Cumberland - river trade. Captain Lawson will be buried in Paducah,  Kentucky, where he lived for 56 years.  THE DOMINION OF CANADA  Happenings in Brief.

THE PANAMA  GARRISON BEING  STRENGTHENED IN VIEW  OF ATTACK.  An Immense Coal Belt  PHILADELPHIA, November 21.���An  estimate^ prepared by a local banking  -house-shows that there remains .in the  anthracite fields of Pennsylvania 5,073,-  775,000 tons of unmined coal.

It  is expected that 50,000,000 tons of coal  wilFbe mined and marketed this year.  ORDER OF MIDNIGHT SUN  Which Failed to Materializp.  SEATTLE. November 21.���The Evening Times publishes today a story which  is a confirmation of the story published  in the San Francisco Call to the effect  that a conspiracy had bee.n planned  covering the entire Northwest Territories for the overthrow of Canadian rule  and the establishment of an indepen-  denfrepublic.���The-Times-in_its-article  lays great stress on the story obtained  from Fred Clark, formerly a stage  driver in this city, but who has been  in the Yukon for some time, who admits  a knowledge of the order of the "Midnight Sun," which is supposed to have  been organized for the sole purpose of  the rebellion.  It is claimed that the order was originally organized in strict secrecy in  Dawson in 1000 and from there spread  along the Yukon, with branches as far  as Circle City on one hand and Skagway  and Atlin in the other direction. It is  claimed that men came to Seattle in the  interests of the uprising and .solicited  support in the way of financial contributions. The Times says that no arms  were bought. The total membership  of tho order of the Midnight Sun is  pjaced at 1500, although the members  confidently expected outside assistance  that would bring the total of the insurgents to almost 5000.  The Times said that in the early days  of the organization a circular was issued and secretly distributed to disaffected miners on the upper Yukon in  which 19 different causes were given as  bfing the reasons for anuprising. These  dealt with defective mining laws, corruption of officials, royalty, liquor traffic and gambling, delays in the court of  British- Columbia, Alien Act duties,  miners' and loggers' licenses, recording  fees and boundary disputes. A similar  circular was handed to business men of  Skagway, in which they were solicited  to support the enterprise, and for a  time Clark made his headquarters at  the latter place conducting a junta of  the order. The plotters, according to  the Times, anticipated no trouble, in  getting together men enough to overpower the mounted police at different  towns of the interior. The raid was to  be started on the border and as fast as  a town was overpowered a government'  was to be installed. The officials were  to be secreted and held as hostages. The  raid was to be started immediately after  the close of navigation, and the telegraph lines to Dawson were to be cut  in different places. Thc leaders are said  to have believed that the Canadian government would bo a month getting men  and that at least it would have been  compelled to make terms with thc insurgents before they laid down their  arms.' The conspiracy is said to be  dead owing to ihe publication of its  secrete.  WASHINGTON, November 21.���The  secretary'of the navy received the following cablegram from captain Perry,  commanding the battleship Iowa, dated  Panama today: "Everything quiet. No  further interference since notification  with transit and telegraphic communl-  cation^.Colon is in possession of the  insurgents."  COLON, Colombia, November 21.���The  city of Colon was perfectly quiet all  yesterday and last night; It is claimed  on behalf of the liberals that there has  been no unseemly behavior. Foreigners  are being respected and protected and  transit across the isthmus is uninterrupted. The postoincel, .prefecture,,  all the' other government offices and  nearly all the' commercial houses were  closed yesterday. Colonel Barrera, the  commander, of the liberal forces, lays  that he has notified the. district representative of the department of tho inter- ���  ior and other former officials of the government .that .he has appointed a commission to take over their offices formally today. Senor Espriella, a promin-.  ent lawyer and counsel for the Panama  railway, is a member of the comis-  sion.The feeling of the community-can-'  not be regarded as antagonistic to liberalism.        '    ,  The existing conditions have created  no panic, but it is recognized, that. for  the' liberals to hold Colon' while the  ���conservatives are in possession of  Panama creates a state of affairs which  cannot possibly continue. Colonel Barrera admits that tho government troops  here r-.umbered less than 120 men.  It was at first reported that twelve or  more men had" been killed and that  about thirty had been wounded. Th9  bodies of more dead men have been discovered. The inspoctor_\o�� customs escaped on thn steamer. Several prison-"  ers who were' captured by the liberals  have since been released.  General Zaldana commands 200 liberal troops at Gaturi railroad station,  about six miles from Colon. The liberals say they are in possession of all  the railroad stations between Colon and  Las Cascada. which is' nearer to Panama than to Colon. Both sides used  Remingtons and Mausers. The former  caused the highest death rate. A liberal  trooper, who was shot in the neck with  a Mauser bullet, is "reported to be doing  well. No immediate attack on Panama  is contemplated. Colonel ' Barrera is  waiting the arrival at Colon of the Tib-  erian chief, Domineer Hazin, when definite plans will be formulated, General  Searria commands the - government  forces at Panama. General Patino, tho  original commander of the liberal force  which captured Colon, is said to have  -intended-to-capture-the-Colombian_gun^  boat General Pinzon in person and  some say that the general was drowned  in an effort to reach her in a boat which  capsized. Colonel Berrara denies this.  But there is no doubt that the capture  of the General Pinzon was contemplated.  The United States gunboat Machias, it  is understood, will not interfere with  any of the fighting, but will protect the  railroad and foreign interests.  The government at Panama is still  busy erecting breastworks in the vicinity of the railroad property, in tho  direction of which tne, liberal attack  is expected. The mayor of Panama  started in a launch belonging to the  canal company yesterday morning to  report the state of affairs to general  Alban. Since the mayor's return to  Panama it has become rumored that he  found the general at Chorrera, who  decided to take his forces back to Panama by land and reinforce the garrison  there. Certain sources of information  have it that the canal company's largest  launch was loaned to the government  last Sunday to convey general Alban  and troops toward Chorrera and was  sunk on Tuesday near Tobago. The political prisoners at Panama have been  removed from their usual prison to a  safer place of confinement at the farther end of Panama.  United States consul Hezekiah Ag-  uder, captain Perry of the, United States  battleship Iowa and the secretaries of  the government held a conference at  Panama yesterday, -phe last named  averred, that the. conductors of the train  should not have allowed "armed liberals  to embark on the train at Las Casadas.  Captain Perry replied that the government should protect free transit on the  isthmus and ought to have prevented  the embarkation ofthe liberals. Sub-  seqlently a letter was sent to the Colombian authorities by the American  officials with reference to future action.  It is not improbable that the Iowa will  shortly land a force to protect transit.  Trial of Mrs. Bonine."  WASHINGTON, November 21��� The  trial of Mrs. Lola Nina Bonine on tho  charge of killing James Seymour Ayres,  jr., was fairly launched today^ The  preliminary presentation of the case  on behalf of the government was made  by assistant district attorney Hugh T.  Taggart and after he had concluded a  number of witnesses were heard.   Mr.  Taggart's statement consumed only  about an hour and fifteen minutes and  consisted for the most part of a review  of the circumstances connected wifch the  tragedy. Mr. Taggart stated the theory  of the prosecution to be that Ayres was  murdered by Mrs. Bonine and that she  gained admission to his room in thc  hotel through the window, reaching  that by means of the fire escape. He  attempted to show that she was piqued  by his non-attention to her. Mrs.  Bonine apparently was unmoved by his  representations. The witnesses of the  day did not throw any new light upon  the killing.   Mammoth Tobacco Combine.  . NEW YORK, November 21.���Amove-  ment of a significant character in the  tobacco interest is attracting much attention in the trado and financial districts, says the Journal of Commerce.  This movement is the project of a new  tobacco combination which when completed is likely to have a capital stock  of $50,000,000. William H. Butler, now  president of the Universal Tobacco Company and formerly vice-president of the  American Tobacco Company, in all-  probability will be chosen president of  the organization. Besides the Universal  Tobacco Company, the nucleus of the  combine, the more important concerns  to" be taken over are the Havana Commercial Company, Henry Clay, Bock &  Co., D. H. McAlpine & Co., and Weisen-  berger & Co. The consolidated company  is-likely to be incorporated under the  law's of New Jersey within'a few weeks.  President- Butler of the Universal ��� Tobacco Company declines to make known  his plans at present. It is regarded that  a "tobacco war similar to that now going, on in Great Britain may yet take  place in this country.  aro of the opinion that it is impossible  under tho terms of the protocol for  foreigners to continue to govern Tie.-i  Tsin.  Corea has secured the premises long  'occupied by the United. States" legation  and will take possession thereof at the  expiration of the American lease next  spring.  HONG' KONG, November 21.���The  rumored death of Tao Mu, viceroy of  Kwang Tung and Kwang Si,, is denied.  It is now said the viceroy has resigned  owing to the empress of China having  refused to allow him to grant a concession for Honan island (opposite Canton) to certain foreigners, presumably  on an application made by the American, German, French and Japanese consuls. The empress telegraphing the  viceroy her reply to his request to  grant this concession, ��� said: "Defend  the boundaries; those are your orders."  CASE IS DECIDED  CENTER  STAR   VS.   B.   C.

VIENNA, November 21.���An official  Servian statement just issued declares  there is absolutely no foundation for  the reports that queen Draga has been  shot at, or that she has committed  "suicide.  A special -dispatch from 'Buda Pesth  today says that a newspaper there asserts that queen Draga and king Alexander of Servia recently riuarrelled and  the king slapped the queen's face. The  latter thereupon drank poison, but her  life was saved by physicians.  INTEREST AT WASHINGTON  In Isthmian Affairs.  WASHINGTON, D. C, November 21.���  Save for two reassuring dispatches tro.n  consul-general  Cudger at Panama and  captain Perry of the battleship Iowa lying off that port, neither the state nor  the navy departments have received any  advices concerning the situation on the  '-isthmus���Great-interest _is_felt_here_as_  to the outcome of the Chorrera expedition, for it is realized that the result  of the engagement at that point will be  decisive in giving the conservative or  the liberal element control of the isthmus. Secretary Long has not sent any  additional   instructions   to   the   commanders of the Iowa and the Machias,  believing    tha    too    full    instructions  j-ometimes hamper instead of facilitate  in such a situation as now exists on the  isthmus, preferring to trust to the officer's own judgment in suiting their actions to the prime purposes of keeping  traffic    free    and    American    interests  fully protected. In a fey days the gunboat Concord will have reached Panama to relieve the Iowa, and the Marietta  on  the  Atlantic  side  will  be at  Colon to take the place of the Machias.  However, if the present situation continues all four of these vessels will be  held on the isthmus pending futher developments.  Greek Student Riots   ATHENS, November 21.���The agitation against the proposal to translate  the gospels into modern Greek was  continued today. Twenty thousand persons assembled around the ruins of the  temple of Jupiter Olympus and took  part in the demonstration organized .by  the students. A resolution was passed,  calling on the holy synod to excommunicate any person who translated the gospels into modern Greek as now spoken.  Eight hundred marines were landed to  patrol the locality. Several collisions occurred and occasional shots were fired.  The students still hold the university  buildings.  Matters in the Orient,  PEKIN, November 21.���The military  government established over the native  city of Tien Tsin continues in effect,  the military commanders refusing to  yield the collection of taxes to the Chinese. They also decline to submit the  question of their control of the native  city to the ministers of the foreign powers here, holding that continuance of  military government there is vital to  the maintenance of communication between Pekin and Taku. The ministers  apparently regard the question as within their jurisdiction and some of them  Approaching'a Climax.  PARIS, November 21.���The. situation  in the mining contest of France is  again approaching a climax. The next  day or two will see a definite decision  upon the question of a general strike.  The result of the recent referendum  which, while it gave a majority in favo-  on the actual number who voted, actually indicated that a very considerable number of the miners "were either  opposed to a strike or not enthusiastic,  impelled the federation officials -to put  elf. a strike declaration on the plea that  it was advisable to wait the.,decision,  of" the "commission--'of the chamber of  deputies engaged in 'studying the demands of the mineis. It now appears unlikely that the commission will satisfy  these demands and the extreme partisans are endeavoring to force.the haad  of the federation officials in favor of a  strike.  Already a partial strike has broken  out in.a coal field of Nord, where a general meeting of miners voted yesterday  in favor of a strike and-sent a dispatch  to M. Cott, secretary of the federation,  calling upon him to declare a strike,  immediately. M!..Cott declines to assume  the responsibility and"announces the  holding of a final consultation of delegates of the various mining centers  and the publication of the decision in  the course of a day or so. In the meantime the committee of the important  Pas de Calais district has published' a  manifesto against the declaration of a  strike until the commission of the chamber of deputies shall have concluded'  its labors, and a similar feeling is  evinced in other districts. Indications  therefore go to show that the strike even  if declared will be only partial and not  general and that it is doomed in advance to failure.  The Belgian and British miners who  have been consulted have refused to  consent to reduce the output, although  they have promised to give financial  aid. Consequently the opponents of the  strike predict that the object of the  -Frcnch-strikers-will-be-defeated-by-the-  invasion of foreign coal, including American.  The situation at present is that 4200  out of the 15,000 miners in the department of the Nord have struck and that  about 10,000 have gone on strike in the  adjacent pits of tho Pas de Calais district. The movement is spreading in  the department of the Nord and it is  asserted that all miners there will cease  work tomorrow.  Thus far complete order prevails, but  an imposing' force of gendarmes, infantry and cavalry has been billeted in  every coal field to cope with any disorder.  of> mines under one management they,  desire the water and place where .waten  is to be used to be defined.  The Amur brought two French wo-*  men   passengers   from   Skagway   thi3.  morning.

Queen Wilhelmina's Illness  ANTWERP, November 21.���The Nieue  Gazette todays prints a story to the  effect that the illness of queen Wilhelmina of Holland was a sequel to a series  of somewhat serious quarrels with her  husband. Several reports of disagreements due to the prince consort's jealous, cold and-severe disposition have  been current and have gained considerable credence. The young queen in-  .heirts all the Orange obstinacy and  dislike of criticism and rumors of royal  unhappiness started some months ago.  Although queen Wilhelmina has not  left her room her condition has improved. The court physician visits her  majesty only once a day She is still  weak and requires a great deal of rest.  The queen will probably be able to return to The Hague in about a month.  Ground to a Pulp.

V, O, _Bw 1CL       . ���   . ���  The   Kamloops   Sentinel   has   asked  leading  men  throughout -the  province  to  give their views  on  redistribution.  Among   those' who   have   replied   are:  Captain. Tatlow, M.P.P., of Vancouver,  R.  F.  Green, M.P.P.,  of Kaslo;  Smith  Curtis, M.P.P., of Rossland, John Oliver,  ri.P.P., of Delta, F. C. Cotton, ex-M.P.  P., of Vancouver, J. M. Keilie, ex-M.P.  P.,  of Revelstoke,  editor Grace of the  Fort Steele Prospector,  and would-be-  s'enator  Sinclair  of  Rossland.   Messrs.  Tatlow, Green, Curtis, and Oliver practically agree in  their views.  All four  favor passing a redistribution bill before any other legislation, and all four  favor a redistribution of seats on the  lines   suggested   by   The  Tribune,   although, as Mr. Green puts it, the boundaries of some of the ridings are not to  his  liking.  It is safe to assume that  Messrs.    Tatlow,    Green,    Curtis,    and  Oliver can be depended upon to oppose  any  legislation   until   a  redistribution  bill is passed. Messrs. Cotton and Keilie  want all the census returns in before  they   give  an* opinion,   although   Mr.  Keilie, without these returns, denounces-  the redistribution of seats as outlined  by   The   Tribune   as   one   that   would  " practically    disfranchise    the    whola  " northern mainland, restrict its influ-  " ence   in   the   legislature,   and   throw  " all  the patronage into the capacious  " paws of a small area of country." The  would-be-senator from Rossland is not  expected  to have any very Intelligent  idea of the requirements of the people  of the province in which he has been  so short a time a resident, but he "con-  " siders   that  it   is   most   unfair   that  "Rossland riding   with   16,000,   and  a  "voting power ot of 3500, should have  The   plan' of   redistribution - as   outlined by The Tribune is so manifestly  fair to all sections of theprovince-that  the only James AE Keilie objects to it.  It gave Vancouver "City 5 members, Vic-,  toria City 4, Nanaimo City 1, New Westminster City"' 1, Rossland City '1, Nelson   City   1,   Cassiar   2j,   Cariboo"'and  Lillooet 3, the -west coast- of Vancouver Island 1,* Victoria'district-1, Cowichan district 1, Nanaimo district 1, Comox-  district- 1, New Westminster district 4,  Yale   district'  5,   and   East. and". West  Kootenay districts 6. -Such a redistribution leaves the house as at-present with  38 members. "The- changes on the Island  are  tbat Esquimalt 'and Victoria  district,   with-a population bf  less  than  3000, are given" one member instead of-  four, as at present, aiid'Nariairho "district  is given one*-instead' of two- members,  as at present. The Island'would therefore have' five members from city-constituencies-and'Ave from rural'districts.  The sparsely settled. northern districts  would have five members, they now have  six,   Lillooet  losing  one.   The   city  of  Vancouver  would   gain  one.   The  city  of  New Westminster  and the  district  of  New  'Westminster  would  have five  members; .as^ at  present.   Yale  district  would'gain two, which'would go to the  Boundary,  which  is  now* tacked. onto  the Rossland riding of West kootenay.  The   cities   of   Rossland   and   Nelson  would each get a member. The Revelstoke,    Golden,,    and    Slocan    ridings,  which now have three members would  get   four;   South-east   Kootenay   would  get two, which would be a gain of one,,  and Nelson and Trail Creek mining divisions ���',-* would: - get. one. . The northern  part of the Mainland, which Mr. Keilie  prates.so.much about, would have three  members   from   Cariboo   and   Lillooet,  two from the-main line of the Canadian  Facific, and, three from the more central  portions   of, Kootenay  arid  Yale.   The  south   would   have   two   in   Southeast  Kootenay, one in. Nelson, one in Rossland,   one in- Nelson-Trail  Creek,  and  twoMn-the-Boundaryror~seven"members~  in-all,  to which  might be added the  member for the western portion of Yale.  If a redistribution of seats should -be  made as outlined above, no section of'  the province would be unfairly treated,  and no section would have such a preponderance of .votes as to give it undue political power.  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  '.V.  to  to  to  to  to  to  SB Baker Street, Nelson.  to  to  ffflV' ���**��������� W      MMXVVl. 9^0VMX\0S0%0m       JL"* ^sM.KT\SAA.e  Ellison and- P.' J. - Fulton of Yale can  be depended on-to vote straight on that"  issue. Thomas Kidd and Charles' Munro  of New Westminster district should be  of the same" opinion as John 'Oliver of  Delta. The twelve- membersnamed.above  can force any'government-made up "of  anycombiriatidn^of the present member-'  ship - to- pass" a-, redistribution measure,-  and The1 Tribune" is of opinion" that" they  wili'do'itr-    -  Representative government, if it  means anything, must mean that one  man is as good as another. It cannot  possibly mean that one man shall have  the same representation in parliament  as twenty men. It cannot mean-that  one section of the province with 1000  people must have double the voting  strength of another section with 5000  people. It surely does not mean that a  village like Esquimalt and a country district like Lillooet which have representation to which they are not entitled/that  they must-always have such representation. It cannot niean that an uninhabited wilder ness',. nb riiauer what may be  its probable hidden wealth, should be  given a member merely because some  politician wants a "safe" seat. Representative government means' that one  man is as good as another, and not that  one man .or one section is better than  another man or another section.       "  Iff the members of the legislature  will only drop self, a redistribution bill  could be passed within a. week after  the legislature meets. But how,, many  of the members can do this? Captain  Tatlow of Vancouver can evidently do  it. John Oliver of Delta can do it. Robert  F. Green of Kaslo can be depended on  to do it. John Houston' of Nelson will  not vote for any government that does  not bring down and pass a fair redistribution bill before doing anything else  in the way of legislation. Messrs Clifford and Stables of Cassiar should be  of the same way of thinking, as should  be B. C- Smith of JSasH Kootenay.

Tlie third  suggestion mndeby Mr. Andrews, while-  iio more original than'the other two,  is really the host of the tliree!   Were it  adopticl, government ownership of railways, telegraphs, ahd telephones would  follow,  simply  because   stich   corporation's would find it impossible to. secure  legislation that ten tis   to   make   them  ni ore  powerful  than   the  government.  ���Millions of dollars and millions of acres  of land have Been granted to railway  corporations, in the way of subsidies; by  a few men..sitting.in legislative-bodies.

Ther people of  Canada will have good government  when her officials and servants, high and  low, aire imbued with the same motives  that govern those who manage and op-  erate the great .financial and industrial  concerns of the country, and not-until  then. Men who believe in party first  cannot be depended on to give the people-  good government, simply because their  fcalrty is to their party rather than to the  people. When men elected to office "6r  appointed to office are as truo to the  interests of the people as aro those w;ho  are selected to' manage successful corporations, then the people will have  little to complain- of in the direction of  either unwise legislation or inefficiency in the management of the public's business. * .  06$ MCttts SrfLds CfiinJittfi Ml?  0&n/ 0/ QtUUrt/' *�� 4n_*4fc  0$M* -^  Wsfcvf&b Z  /  <yfUr{f��r  W.

MARRIED HIM THREE TIMES  Novel Matrimonial Experience.  On an Atlantic liner bound for Liverpool, a handsome woman, still young, is  taking her fourth wedding trip and,  spending the first quarter of her fourth  honeymoon with her flrst husband,  whom she married for the third time.  If this woman, for the fourth time a  bride, though having had but one husband ence, and one liusLand threo times,  wero to be given her names in their actual chronological order, she would be  called Mrs. Grace Snell-Coffin-Coffin-  Walker-Coffin.  She chooses to ignore one of her husbands and objects to the repetition of  the other's name,' so that she is simply  written down on the steamship's passenger list as Mrs. FrmiK Nixon Coffin,  just as she was seventeen years ago  when she began marrying Mr. Coffin.  The name Snell she avoids when she  can, because it has painful associations  and is apt to provoke questions.  She is the daughter of Amos J. Snell,  the Chicago multi-millionare, who was  murdered in his home thirteen years  ago, and whose murderer has never been  found..  Why has Mrs. Coffin .married four  times, andthree times married the same  man?  Sho answers in one word "Destiny."  "Circumstance, chance, fate, whatever you choose to call that which is  quite outside ourselves, and yet controls us," she adds.  It was seventeen years ago that Miss  Grace Snell, when sixteen years old,  first married Frank Nixon Coffin. Ho  was a man of many occupations Once  he taught a dancing class. It is said that  he was once Mr. Snell's coachman and  that it was while he was such that Miss  Snell eloped with him. He denied this,  but there are old friends of the Snells  who hold persistently to it. At any  rate, Frank Nixon Coffin was penniless  and it was equally certain that this fact  made no difference to sixteen-year-old  Miss Snell, because she ran away with  him and married him.  . They lived together for two years.  Then the wife applied for a divorce.  She accused him of incompatibility of  temper.    The courts freed her.  Thoy went their different ways, she v  live in the old Snell horastoad, where  her father had been murdered, ho to follow his different vocations, and to forget the luxury in wliich ho had lived as  the son-in-law of a multi-millionare.  They had one child���a boy.  While he was in Boston at school the  lad fell ill, and his mother hurried.to  his bedside. In his delirium ho called  constantly for "Fapa! Papa." The  physicians in attendance begged that  he be humored, for the end was near  and the little follow could only die in  peace if his father was with him. The  mother  telegraphed   at  once  to  Franit  Coffin and he took tne first train for  Boston.  He arrived in time Lo take the little  fellow into his arms and hold him there  until he died.  The parents wept together over the  body^ of-the young boy, who had died,  and they married again.  Their newly wedded life happened to  have its home in one of Chicago's hotels,  the Virginia. It was not long before  it began to be whispered about the  hotel that the second union was moro  bitterly unhappy than the flrst. Ther ?  were bickerings, reproaches, sadness  and anger and tears.  And so there came a time when they  refused to dine at the same table.  Then, after a fiercer outburst of temper than usual, Mr. Coffin left thc hotel  and ordered his trunks sent aftor him.  Mrs. Coffin sent for the chief clerk, and  told him that on. no account should Mr.  Coffin's cards be sent up to her.  The name of the chief clerk was James  C. Walker. He promised faithfuliy and  sympathized respectfully. Mrs. Coffin  in tears thanked him.  "I never want to see Mr. Coffin again.  Never."  "You shall not, if I can help it." said  the clerk.  Mrs. Coffin found his sympathy soothing.. She discovered that he had a fine,  though untrained, singing voice, and she  insisted upon his going abroad to cultivate'it. She -loaned him a generous  sum for that purpose. While he was  gone Mrs. Coffin again applied for a  divorce from the obliging Chicago  courts. Again she alleged incompatibility, and this time she complained  bitterly of Mr. Coffin's ungovernable  temper.   She secured hei- second decree.  The chief clerk was abroad l'or a  year. When he came back he married  Mrs. Coffin, and on their wedding day  she gave him ?S0,000. He went back  with her to Europe on ��� their wedding  journey. After her third "trial trip"  Mrs. Coffin-Walker settled down in  Waukesha Springs, Wis., where tho  bridegroom' became manager of tho  Fountain House.  When the early days of the honeymoon were over Mrs. Walker began to  see that her new husband not only had  the familiar "ungovernable temper,"  but jealousy as well. He was not jealous of any of her flesh, and blood admirers. But he was jealous of the creations of her brains.  His wife wrote novels.  /jid the bridegroom was  -especially,  SAVINGS BANK DEPARTMENT:  Interest allowed on deposits.   Present rate  three per cent.  GRANGE V. HOLT,  Manager Nelson Branoh.  jealous of Alexander Patton, the hero  ���of a story which she called "The Return  of an Expatriate."  This is a leaf from the romance:  "'Alexander Patton!" The name  awoke memories. The man had loved  her oncfc, honestly, almost insanely. She  could close her eyes and see his white  face as he pleaded; she could hear, too,  the laugh with which she answered  him. Yet she liked him well���better, in  fact, than any man she had met before  or since���infinitely better th^m the  flashy scoundrel she had used as a  weapon with which to strike her father  -dead; more consumingly than the  wreck for whom she was immolating  herself. Why had she refused him?  Pride, of couiso; an idiotic, stiff-necked  j.ride. There had been in her, too,  the desire to run counter to her father's  wishes, for she knew that the speculator  liked the resourceful, strong employee  whoin he had introduced to his home.  Five years had passed since he went  from her���five years, long, leaden and  full of misery. And now he was at the  top of, fortune's wheel, rich, powerful,  courted, and she at the bottom, poor,  unrecognized, almost in hiding.  ' "Try as sho would, however, she  cculd not - fancy him in high estate.  To her mind's eye he was still young,  obscure and pleading thickly and passionately."  Mr. Walker hated Alexander Patton,  One day,,he threw the novel and two,  basketfuls of manuscript into the fire.  She begged him to leave but one, her  favorite, "Tho Pre-Sanctified," but that  followed the others into the grate.  Then Mrs. Walker left her husband.  Cn explanation she said, again to her  friend, tho divorce* court: "When Mr.'  Walker learned that a firm of Chicago  publishers had accepted a story I sent  tlieni without his knowledge there was  war at Waukesha's Fountain House. He  threw all of my manuscripts into the  flames, every one of them. Having no  more of my innocent manuscripts within  reach of destruction, he beat me with  his fists,.kicked me about the room and  all but killed me.  "His desire to kill the creation of my  brain I could undersand on his prudis-i  plea that they would bring criticism on  their author and certain elements of  society, although I don't believe that  any fear of scandal or disgrace was his  real motive.  "What caused his rage was jealousy.  But it was not ordinary jealousy. He  was jealous because of the creatures  figuring in my story���jealous of them  because I had lavished on them all the  affections and tenderness bestowed on a  child by the mother who gives it birth."  The court granted a, verdict on the  ground of extreme cruelty. Mrs. Walker had been heard to say, "I shall not  be single twenty-four hours after I  am free."  She proved to be a clever prophet.  On October 23rd she married her flrst  husband the third time "quietly." The  re-marriage was made at St. Chrys-  ostom's church, in Chicago, by the Rev.  Thaddeus A. Snively. The divorce had  been granted by judge James Dick six  weeks before. At noon A. J. Stone, her  brother-in-law, appeared in court as  attorney in fact to.secure the permission for Miss Snell, lately Mrs. Walker,  formerly Mrs. Coffin, to become Mrs.  Coffin again. This is a form necessary  in Wisconsin, where there is a law  against divorced couples marrying  again within the year without the consent of the court of records. The court  willingly granted this consent. At 2  o'clock, in response to a telegram, Mr.  Coffin went to Miss Snell's country  home, near Waukesha. They came together to Chicago and late in the afternoon secured a license. Accompanied by a few old-time friends thoy  drove to St. Chrysostom's church and  were made "one" again and again. They  were married in an Episcopal church  by an Episcopal clergyman, who would  not discuss the bearing of the case upon the Episcopal divorce canon. Another  clergyman, more talkative, said:  "The Episcopal church does not oppose the reuniting of the same persons  who have been divorced, In fact, the  church is glad to reunite the couples  under such circumstances."  "We are glad, too," said Mrs Coffin  in congratulating her friends. "Frank  and I feel that those dreadful divorces  were really only little quarrels, after  all. It seems to us that we have always been married from the first."  Mrs. Coffin imputes her first marriage  to love, her second to mutual sympathy,  her third she calls contemptuously "a  regrettable mistake," her fourth to the  "habit of marriage to the same man."  Her friends arc less general as to  reasons. "Mr. Coffin, whatever his  faults, never burned my books," they  quote her as saying. ' tie always encouraged my writing and seemed proud  of it. I can go on with my literary  career now."  Mrs. Coffin has thrown away the two  decrees in the name of Coffin and bearing the seal of the divorce court, and  has saddled the third to the certificates  bearing the name of Coffin and signed  by a clergyman, and she says she is  confident of happiness with this her  first, second, and fourth husband.  Mrs. Coffin, the daughter of a multimillionaire, has inherited a great deal  of her father's wealth.

She is still a handsome woman, radiant and blithe hearted, in spite of her  many trials on the troubled sea of matrimony.  ; The murder of her father, Amos J.  iSnell, is one of the mysteries of criminal annals. He was one of the richest  men in Chicago. Though unpopular because of uncertain infirmities of temper, he was credited with being an honest man and,, in a hard way, a good one.  His fortune was founded by the building of an old plank road out of Milwaukee avenue, through the town of  Jefferson. It was the only road leading  from the northwest into Chicago, and  Mr. Snell reaped a harvest through his  toll gates. Time and time again they  were burned by the farmers who objected" to the ��� stiff ,tolls, but all to no  avail. They were invariably rebuilt the  rext day. The money earned in this way  he reinvested in real estate, which, with  .the rapid -growth of r Chicago, increased  in value in the same ratio. He built a  fine stone house at Washington boulevard and Ada street. Here it was .that  the mysterious murder occurred on the  night of February Sth, 1888. It is supposed-that about 2:30 in the morning  ho heard burglars tampering with his  safe in the library. He went down stairs  tb investigate and was shot at the lower  landing. The servants said they heard  the report, but "were too frightened to  give an alarm until daybreak.  Some burglar tools were found upon  the floor. There were small footprints,  as though made by .a woman or a boy  in the snow. Those were the,only clews,  but they led the'police to Willie Tas-  cott, an elevator boy in the Palmer  House. When they went to his room  they found that he had escaped them  by an hour. ''  Then began a man-hunt that has  lasted thirteen years and is still unsuccessful.  Two thousand men have been arrested  on suspicion. Multitudinous, absurd  clews have been followed in the hope  of winning,the $50,000 reward, offered  by the family. But the Snell murder remains a mystery. But probably the  strangest of all is this third marriage  to the one husband.  m  Dis Debar Had Many Titles.

In order .to hold the men whom they  get the city police department is having a' couple of cells in the city lockap  made more secure.

The meeting of the Nelson board of  trade which was called for last even-  nig did not materialize, as there was no  quorum. The special committee appointed to interview the retail grocers with  a view to inducing them to withdraw a  portion of a circular which their association had issued was to have reported.  It is likely now that the i-etail and  wholesale grocers will have their differences threshed out before another  meeting of the board is held.  on the clearing of the right of way has  already commenced and the grading outfit will be shipped from this city on  Monday. Henry Boie, the well known  railway contractor, who for several  years was connected with the firm of  O'Leary Brothers, will have charge of  the work for Mr. Tierney. In addition  to the grading of the right of way Mr.  Tierney's contract calls for the grading of the smelter site. The preliminary  work to smelter construction is being  pushed for all it is worth, there being  upwards of 100 men already employed  on it. Of these there are a number engaged in making the brick for the  smelter, and another gang is employed  in getting out tlie lumber necessary,  the company having a small sawmill  in operation. It is not likely that a line  of railway will be built from the co-n-  pany's mines to the smelter, a distance  of five miles, but this is conditional  whether the company finds it to its  advantage to build a railway or a tramway. .'..*'���.*'  Dan Bloom, the man who made his  escape from the city lockup on Wednesday evening is how looked upon by  the police as being much smarter than  they gave him credit for. They are now  convinced that upon his last visit to the  second hand jktbres Bloom not; only  disposed of four suits of clothes which  were stolen from the Canadian Pacific  railway baggage car, but succeeded in  lifting a coat from the second hand  store as well. Silver King Mike did not  miss the overcoat- from his store until  yesterday morning, and by this time  Bloom had made good his escape, but  his description of the lost garment tallied closely with the coat which Bloom  was wearing at the time of his arrest.  There was a rumor on the street yesterday morning that the local'tramway  company had decided to suspend operations at the' end., of the present month,  but the rumor so far lacks confirmation.  Some months ago the local directors  of the tramway company sought a  conference with the city authorities  with a view to seeing what could be  done to help them out of the hole in  which they found themselves in view  of tho long? price which the company  was obliged to pay the "West Kootenay  Power & Light Company for p'ow��r,  but so far as could be learned at the  time nothing came of it. Under its bylaw the tramway company would forfeit its charter in the event of the suspension . of. operations for two months  in any one year..  i. *  H. G. Nichols, a mining man who  makes his headquarters" in Nelson, has  an article in. the last number of the  Vernon News - in which he comments  on the mismanagement which he says  characterizes the operations of the mining companies that are carrying on mining in the Okanagan district. If the  strictures of Mr.;'Nichols are well founded the circum'stances are very much  to be regretted,1 as the successful operation of mines'is'a necessary" adjunct to  the great colonization scheme which it  is said is under way for the peopling  of the valley with 50,000 settlers. The  land upon which it is proposed to .settle the new settlers is rich enough, but  the local market of the settlers would  iv. a very great measure depend on the  mining iLdustry.  NELSON. B.C.

THE  BINDERY DEPARTMENT OB"  THE TRIBUNE ASSOCIATION, LIMITED,  90pX&&M0B,2mUB0K,  BOOK BINDING  SPECIAL RjHED BUM *O0J(S  $mWL IRIUD FOfiMS  Victoria Boilermakers Strike.  VICTORIA, November 21���Boilermakers employed by the Albion Iron  Works Company went on strike today,  refusing to ,work more than eight hours  a day on the steamer City of Topeka,  which the company is repairing. They  claim that the steamer, being an American vessel, they have to abide by the  rule of the American association for  eight hours on outside work. Men were  secured to take, their places and the  company say they will have the steamer ready in the time prescribed by the  contract.  ; On the Coast.  George H. Cowan of Vancouver, who  has been in the city for the past couple  of days, was approached last evening by  a Tribune representative for his view  upon the present political situation at  ��� Victoria.*. Mr, Cowan is something of a  politician himself,and is supposed to be  fairly well iu touch with the moves of  the other men in the game and for this  reason his views may be of some interest.  In the outset he was careful to say he  did not speak for anyone but himself.  He then expressed the opinion that E.  V. Bodwell was the logical candidate  of the forces that were opposed to the  Dunsmuir administration. Being a Conservative he said it was but natural that  he would like-to see a Conservative administration, but there was no prospect  of this. One difficulty was that there was  nc provincial Conservative who could  claim sufficient precedence over the  others to set,himself up as the leader  of an administration. There were Conservatives who might be considered as  leaders of factions, but none of them  had sufficient strength to lead the whole  party. Like a number of other prominent Conservatives, both inside and outside the house, he said he was inclined  to support the Bodwell boom.  The political situation he sized up m  this,way: Bodwell will run in Victoria  and be - elected. The government was  anxious to delay the bye-election there  as long as possible, but he was confident it would be forced-to issue-the  writ and have the election before the  legislature meets. Once in the house  he figured that it would be easy work  for Bodwell to bring about the--defeat  of the government. In fact he felt confident that a man like Bodwell would  develop such strength in the present legislature that he would be able to carry  on the government without 'a general  election. The new movement to his  mind meant a strai^ut fight against  Martinism and Dunsmuirism and its  following would in a very great measure be made up of the members of the  house who bolted the government upoa  the railway issue. Mr. Cowen said he  was aware that the two political parti js  were in a measure committed to party  lines, but he thought this little dim-,  culty could be got around. Personally  he was not in favor of party lines in  provincial politics, and he was of the  opinion that a stable government could  be formed from tho present members  in the legislature without respect to  their federal politics.  It will take a few months to decide  just how near right Mr. Cowan is in  conception of the present situation and  his forecast* for the future, but in the  "meantime his views are' interesting as  those of a politician who loses no opportunity to keep himself posted.  King Edward's Health and Edict.  NEW YORK, November 21���Regarding the health of ithe king, the London  correspondent ofi the Tribune cables  that from the highest sources of information come the most reassuring accounts of the king's health. Those recently with him assert that he has no  throat ailment whatever and that his  general health and spirits are how better than for a long time. London  tradesmen might have saved charges  for insurance on their stocks in coronation year if these facts had been generally known.  King Edward has checkmated the  thrifty nobles and others who proposed  to line their pockets with American  and continental gold by the sale of  their seats in Westminster Abbey for  the coronation ceremonies, by decreeing  that excepting in an official capacity  only British subjects are to be present.  He has decided'that the mere fact of  any seat being sold dispossesses both  the holder and the nominee- from the  right of occupying it. It is understood  that large sums have been offered, both  in America and Europe, for seats on  the occasion of the coronation.  stated at the state department that up  to this time no application has been  made by the United States government  to the porte for permission to send war  ships to the Dardanelles to demonstrate  off the Bulgarian coast, as reported in  a Vienna dispatch this morning. It is  further supposed that the status of Miss  Stone's case remains unchanged so far  as the department is advised.  Meeting of Archbishops  WASHINGTON, November 21.���The  archbishops of the Catholic church in  this country began their annual meeting here today in MacMahon haU at the  Catholic university. The proceedings  were secret.

Archbishop Keane of  Dubuque, Iowa, and others stated that  there was nothing to be made public at  this time.
