 m.  7. xyyiwu  ������xx-ysiim^i  ESTABLISHED  1892  MOOT) AT  MOBBING,  NOVEMBER 25,   1901  DAILY EDITION  THE GERMAN ATTACK ON  CHAMBERLAIN  MAY   MAKE   HIM    PREMIER   OF  ENGLAND-NEWS  REVIEW  OP THE WEEK.  '  NEW   YORK,   November   24.���I.   N.  Ford, special correspondent of the New  York Tribune, in his cable, says: There  is a preceptible hardening of public feeling   here   against   Germany.    The   remark is heard on every side that tha  German agitators may succeed in making Mr. Chamberlain prime minister if  they persevere in distorting the obvious  meaning of a harmless  phrase  and  in  holding him up to ridicule in indecent  cartoons.     Those   behind   the   scenes  smile   grimly   over   the   fatuity .with  which German agitators have run a tilt  against the English statesman, responsible in a large measure for the recent  entente cordiale between the two countries.   Singularly enough, Mr. Chamberlain was a strenuous advocate of the  dual agreement in China and of closer  relations with   Germany,   aud   is   now  singled out for an aheged deliberate affront   to  the   fatherland.    A   singular  feature of the German outbreak against  England is the neglect of tbe govern-  ��� ment at Berlin to bring pressure to bear,  upon the press   and   public   meetings.  This points io .cooler relations between  tlie British  and  German  governments,  caused by tho recent Mitylene incident  or some othor passage of secret diplomatic history.     There are two natural  effects of the German agitation, which  happily appears to be subsiding.    One  is a sympathetic-movement in England  toward Prance and   Russia   and   away  from Germany, the other is the promotion of cordial relations between .England and the United States.    There is,  indeed, danger that the sentimentalists  may go too far.   The Spectator, for example, while the pioneer of enlightened  judgment respecting the revision of the  . Clayton-Bulwer  treaty,   overshoots  tho  mark in suggesting British  and European sanction for the Monroe doctrine.  That doctrine, like the canal itself, will  be stronger and safer under exclusive  American ownership and control.  SOUTH AFRICAN MATTERS.  The Johannesburg conspiracy  is  the  most important disclosure of tho South  African dispatches.   It involves another  series of military trials and executions,  and   does   not   encctigrage  hope   of  a  . speedy settlement- of the race feud. The  censorship allows the passage of little  news from   the   land.    Private   letters  from men   in thc   employment   of   the  mining companies   report   a   stagnant  condition of that industry and a general  feeling that the war may last another  yeai-.  ENGLISH  POLITICS.  There are no leads of open water beyond the ice pack in which both political ships are drifting.   Al! the oflicers  been forecasting the conversion of the  trunk lines of railways into electrically  worked lines with the trains of lesser  magnitude, dispatched more frequently  and at higher rates of speed, resulting  in substantial gains in economy and the  purity of smokeless atmosphere. He  laid stress upon tlio necessity of ;work-  ing passenger and freight trains by the  same system of electric traction and  predicted the gradual abandonment of  steam propulsion for the railways of tho  United Kingdom, in which ��1,300,000,-  000 have been investi:d. Sir William  Preece's earnest plea for a rational telephone system, has also attracted widespread interest, owing to the defects in  the existing service.  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS.  Details of the remarkable frauds of  the clerk Goudie of the Liverpool bank  ore coming out slowly. The system by  which he manipulated ledgers and concealed an embezzlement of ��170,000  cannot be explained by the officials until  every accomplice is under arrest. Bank  book-keeping in England is a maze of  red tape, with daily cheeks and balances  which do not always operate as safeguards.  Santos-Dumont is ovenun with callers at the Carlton hotel, and will be  entertained by the Aero Club on Monday night. There will be a brilliant,  banquet to sii Thomas Lipton, the same  right at the Hotel Cecil, lord Tweed-  mouth presiding.  The stewards ofthe Henley regatta  received strong protests from the colonies against the exclusion of Canadians  and Australians from the contests on  the Thames and the London club voted  against the prohibitive policy of barring  out foreign crews. .The controversy  raised by Mr. Grenfell's proposal has  been a spirited one, with vigorous warnings against anything which might be  considered unsportsmanlike. The decisive vote by which the stewards rejected  it yesterday and decided against alteration of tbo lules was ir. line with the  traditior-al Enlish love of sport.  at 10 o'clock in the morning all the  men who went on striko last Tuseday  went to work again. Cars were shunted  from track "to track and the purling of  locomotives gave everything a different  appearance from what has been for the  last few days. The first train to leave  the yards tinder the direction of the, old  men left at 1 o'clock and the men lined  up along the track cheering. The headquarters of the strikers were deserted  all day, giving evidence that the strike  is over.        .  Riots Cause Cabinet's Resignation  ATHENS, November 24.���As a result  of the demonstrations against the proposed translation of the gospel into  modern Greek, the Grecian cabinet has  resigned. This action was taken in  spite of king George's efforts to induce  the cabinet and M. Theotokis, the premier, to remain in office. M. Thetokis considers the responsibility of an official  inquiry into" the riots should be left to  another cabinet, in order that the truth  may be established "beyond suspicion.  The party of M. Theotokis will support the new cabinet.  ALL FOUND DEAD  BODIES OF THE EXPLORING  PARTY BECOVERED.  THEY HAD SUCCUMBED TO  THE  DBADLT WHITE DAMP OF  THE MINE.  NOVEL CASE TO BE TESTED  ~of~tlie��� LiberalsbTaftTre-agfeed���in-ide^  nouncing tha incompetence of the ministry in the various stages of the war,  and the futility of concentration camps,  the devastation of the country and the  - proclamations for bringing hostilities  to an end. Sir Henry Campbell-Bannerman, sir William Harcourt and Mr.  Morley go further and advocate specifi***:  terms of peace and the dismissal of Mr.  Chamberlain, but Mr. Asquith, sir  Henry Fowler and sir Edward Grey do  not acquiesce. The .National Liberal  Federation may pass a resolution1 in  favor of the removal of Mr. Chamberlain as a step towards peace, but the  country is not prepared to desert the  colonial minister, cspe^aiiy when under  foreign fire. Otherwise, thc Liberals  are without a definite policy and at thu  mercy of the drifting pack. The ministers themselves are making little progress under the grinding pressure of the  endless war so far. They are united in  rejecting tho precedent offered by lord  Canning's proclamation of amnesty during the Indian mutiny, but are without  resource for accelerating the slow processes of the war or reducing the cost  of the campaign, which is. staggering  British tax payers, if not humanity. The  only practical method of getting Mr.  Chamberlain out of the colonial offic3  is the one employed when lord Lansdowne was conducted with pomp from  the rear office to the foreign office. No  associate aspires to succeed him in the  colonial office and there is no vacancy  yet in sight-in the treasury. If sir  Michael Hicks-Beach succeeds in producing financial proposals which his  colleagues can accept there will be no  cabinet changes and tne .viow drift will  continue with weekly soundings reported by lord Kitchener.  ELECTRIC TRANSPORTATION.  Londoners are hoping that metropolitan legislation will not be, neglected.  The prospect of the passage of the water  purchase bill is not bright, but a long  series of electric transit measures  awaits the sanction of the parliament.  The two penny tube can bo expanded  into a new inner circle if the Central  London acquires additional powers, and  Mr. Yeikes has a doaen fresh irons in  the fire if parliament will work the bellows for him. Scores of electri_  schemes will be presented to parliament. The London county council has  two enormous projects. "William Lang-  don in the presidential address at the  institution of electrical engineers has  Consumptive Immigrant Dt-ported,  NEW YORK, November 24.���In deciding the case of Thomas Bode.-i, tho  courts v/ill rule whether or not a man  suffering" from tuberculosis can be excluded from this country. This is the  .first case in which the cc-nsrtUutional-  iiy of the treasury ruling that consumptives shall be prevented frcm landing  as immigrants -will ��� be passed upon by  the courts. Thomas Boden arrived here  from Ireland November Oth on the Lu-  cania. His wife and child ,were with him.  He has relatives who live in Philadelphia. They are able to guarantee that  he would not become a public charge  and he had monsy of his cwn. The authorities at Ellis island were satisflod  on that score, but .they declined to ad-  lnit him because examinations by physicians of the marine- hospital corps  showed he had tuberculosis of tho  lungs. He appialed to the treasury department and a re-examination was  ordered. The Treasury department ordered that Mr. Boden be sent back on  the next Cunard line steamer, the  fJtruria, which salied Saturday. Francis Tracey Tobin, a lawyer of Philadelphia, hns obtained a writ of habeas  corpus. The act of congress under wliich  it is proposed to ,-xclude Mr. Boden is  framed   to   prevent   the   admission   of  "''persons^stiffefinj^frorr. a~lrathsome or  dangerous, disease." Mr. Boden claims  that the majority of physicians do not  regard consumption as contagious.  HEAVY WHEAT SHIPMENTS  Largest on Record.  FORT WILLIAM, November 24.���  Since Sunday iaorningj one week ago  there has been shipped from this port  over 2,500,000 bushels of wheat. This  includes the vessels that are now in the  harbor that will load today and tonight.  There is now lying in the "harbor carrying capacity for 7.10,000 bushels. It includes the two steamers Princeton and  Black of 210,000 and 230,000 respectively.  The Glengarry and Minnedosa with 80,-  000, the ��� Rosedale 80,000, the Ottawa  110,000. From September to November  21st, there has been shipped from here  8,712,357 bushels of wheat. Add to this  the amount that will go out tomorrow  and there will have been shipped more  wheat than was' shipped during the  whole season of ravigation of .188!),  which was the largest year yet recorded  up to now. Grain men expect that there  will be a total, shipment yet during "the  navigation of at least three millions,  which make a total of over twelve-  millions shipped out since- September  1st.    Championship Football Gamr. ?i!S3  MONTREAL, November 24.���The Ot-  . tawa College team ahd Argonauts of  Toronto played for the Canadian football championship Saturday,, afternoon  on the ;Montreal grounds-In the'pres-  tlme limit the "teams were tied, each  great one and at the expiration of the  ence of 2500 people. The game was a  having a score of 12 Although the Argonauts had the ball on thc college line  when time was called they refused to  continue and also declined to play off  on Thanksgiving day. President Clax-  ton has since ordered them to do so and  if they refuse the championship will go  to Ottawa by default. It was expected  that Saturday's game would prove quit9  an easy thing for the Toronto men, but  Ottawa showed up surprisingly strong  and had they adopted the- tactics they  used at the end earlier in the gama  they would probably have won out.  TEST OF SUBMARINE BOAT  Fifteen Hours Under Water.  Furious Gale at the East  NEW YORK, November 24.���The  storm of last night and today did considerable damage. Windows in the upper part of the city wero blown in and  a few roofs taken oft. The greatest  damage was along West street, fronting  the North river, where numberless cellars wero flrodorl. The rapid transit  tunnel was florded in many places. The  Western Telegraph Company reports  having suffered most in the Poconomo  mountain district, Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania. Sleet had broken down polos  and wires for nearly a mile. Some of  the Long Island wires were broken. The  Postal Company reports its heavy damage across the river between Suffern  and Guttenburg. Both companies expect to have all repairs made by morning. The wind here blew from 36 to 40  miles an hour this afternoon. The gale  sent shipping scurrying to shelter and  safety. In spite of.dropping of anchors  and putting out of additional hausers,  many small boats and other craft were  damaged or driven ashore.- The^wind  blew over the rivers and bay during  the morning with grea.t fury, and to add  to the trouble there was an unusually  ,high tide, which caused tho flooding of  numberless cellars along the water front  and great damage to merchandise.  A Sea Captain Suicides.  ��� MOBILE, Alabama, November 24.���  The British b-_rk Birnamwood from Rio  Janeiro, in charge of mate Poe, arrive 1  today and reported that on November  lSth t.he captain, named Morris, killed  tho vessel's steward. The .body was  buried" at sea. The captain kept his  cabin, pacing up and down. When informed that Sand island light was  sighted, November 22nd, he gave the  mate the course, picked up a sea lead  and jumped overboard and was drowacul.  Strikers Return to Work-  NEW   YORK,   November  24.���There  was a rush of business at the Harlem  river   yards   of   the   New   York,   New  Haven & Harifcrd railroad today, jCor ,  NEW YORK, November 24.���In the  presence of a big crowd which assembled to witness the emerging of the submarine boat Fulton that craft rose  from the bottom of the bay this morning at 10:30 o'clock with all well and  greatly surprised to find thero was a  storm raging. The test of the Fulton's  staying powers was highly satisfactory,  not only to the officers of the company  that built her and the naval officers  present, but to those who went to the  bottom in the boat. They report there  was not the slightest discomfort to  them during their more than 15 hours  of submersion beneath the surface. Captain Cable of thc Holland Company,  who was in command, said tho boat  could have remained down for three  months if there was food enough on  board Although there was but six feet  of water over the top of the turret,  those on board folt nothing of the  storm. Through t.he night there was  a slight rolling motion to the craft, but  this was ascribed to the regular motion  of the water and not to tho disturbance  which was rolling the waves high on  the shore. Rear admiral Lowe and  lieutenant Arthur McArthur refused to  go into any discussion of the performance of the boat except, to say that they  would be satisfied to stay down-longer.  Members of the crew say they experienced no difficulty in breathing and  that the air was all that could be desired and much superior and better  than an ordinary closed room in which  are several persons. Every part of the  machinery worked to perfection during  the night. The men ato two meals  while under water and enjoyed them.  Most of them obtained three or four  hours' sleep.  BLUEFIELDS,   West  Virginia,   November 24.���The dead bodies of the lost  party  of eight men who  entered  the  west mine of the Pocahontas Collieries  Company on Friday morning last at 11  o'clock were recovered at 12:45 o'clock  today. At 7 o'clock this morning a rescuing party numbering 40 persons, entered at the main entrance, bratticing  the mine as they went in-order to improve the circulation of the air. They  had  reached   a .distance  of   3000   feet  from the entrance when they encountered   such, quantities  of  white   damp  that it was impossible to proceed further.   Retracing  their  steps   they   decided   to  make  another  attempt  from  the Tug river entrance, some six miles  across   the  Flat  Top  mountain.   They  went in this entrance about 10:30 a. m.  and after going about GOO feet tound  the dead bodies of A. S. Hurst, chief  inspector;   Bob  Odham,  sub-inspector;  and Frazier G. Bell, mining-engineer,'all  huddled together." From their positions  they must have met death suddenly and  without pain. All- of them were lying  face down, with no sign of a struggle.  Hurst had made a pillow of his coat;  in which his head rested. The bodies of  the other-members of the party, superintendent of mines Walter O'Malley,  Joseph  Cardell," superintendent  of the  Shamokin Coal and Coke Company, and  R. E. St. Clair, second assistant inspector,   were  found   several  hundred   feet  back in the mine, three of the bodies  lying some  little  distance  apart.   The  bodies of Joseph Cardwell and St. Clair  were lying "with  arms clasped around  each other cold in death. The bodies of  O'Malley, St. Glair and Price were discolored  and   bruised' about  the   facel  showing signs of a struggle, it being  very plain to see they made a desperate attempt at retracing their steps to  better  air,  but  already "had  advanced  too far into the deadly white damp to  escaiie alive.  Insurgent Fort Captured.  MANILA, November 24.���Captain Edward P. Lawton's company of the Nineteenth infantry has attacked and captured an insurgent fort on Bohol island  (south of Cebu, in the Viscayas group).  This fort was surrounded " on all sides  by a precipice and the only entrance  to the grounds was guarded by a  stockade, with a line of entrenchments  behind it Captain Lawton sent sergeant McMahon and 20 men to climb  the precipice and attack them from the  rear. Sergeant McMahon's party ac-  --complished=their=task=after=three=h"ours'"  arduous climbing through the thick undergrowth of brush and vines which  covered the almost perpendicular cliff.  They took the enemy by surprise and  drove them from the fort. As the insurgents escaped they had to pass the  balance of captain Lawlor's company at  a distance of 150 yards. Here the enemy  suffered terrible losses.. The insurgents  defended themselves with both cannon  and rifles. The cannon were captured.  The smaller ones were removed, while  tho larger ones wore buried.  closely. It is set fourth in an Illuminated, missal of ,the fourteenth century  preserved in the library of the abbey.  ,The question of incense has not yet  been settled, but an evangelical paper  is certainly wrong in the statement that  anointing oil will be dispensed with,  and the holy communion omitted. Precedents for both go back to the Saxon  kings.  Baltimore Press Feeders Strike.  BALTIMORE, November 24.���Two  hundred press feeders and helpers employed in about fifty of the job printing  offices of this city quit work today.  Their number will probably be increased by the pressmen, who will quit work  in sympathy with the others. Shops in  which union labor is employed are the  only ones interested in the strike.  Dickinson at Constantinople.  CONSTANTINOPLE, November 24.���  Mr. Dickinson, the special diplomatic  agent of the United States, who has  been conducting the negotiations for  the release of Miss Ellen Stone, arrived here today from Sofia.  COLON WILL BE BOMBARDED  Usual Notice Given.  -  COLON, November 24.���As the result  of an exchange of notes between the'  United States gunboat Machias and the  General  Pinzon  Ignacio  Feliaco;'"com-;  manding the Pinzon, which has 600 on  boaj;d has officially notified the American, British and French- warships now  in the harbor that he intends "to bombard Colon at noon tomorrow (Monday),  thus giving 24 hours' notice. The various consuls are notifying their respective fellow citizens that refuge may be  had on board the warships.  To  bombard thc town of Colon it will be necessary to fire across the railroad track-  and  railroad  employees  will  probably  refuse to work. Lieutenant commander  McCrea of the Machias is senior naval  officer and he"' awaits instructions' from  Washington  regarding  the  threat   to  bombard. There is much excitement in.  Colon.  The  afternoon  passenger  train  which  should  have arrived' here at  6  o'clock had not arrived at 8.  Heir to $33,000,000.  NEW YORK, November 24.~John  Dobson, an employee of the Standard  Block Sigual System Company, of New  York,-living on the Hackensack Plank-  road, New Durham, New Jersey, has re-"  ceived word from a firm of English lawyers that the courts, after many years'  litigation, have decided he is the sole  heir to an estate said to be worth $33,-  000,000. When Dobson's paternal  grandmother died twenty years ego she  left all her property, an estate in the  suburbs of London, to him. Other  heirs contested the will and the estate  has been tied up in the courts ever  since. At the time of Mrs. Dobson's  death the property was not worth as  much as it is today. The growth of  London during the past twenty years  has made the estate one of the most  valuable in the vicinity of the English  metropolis.  HAVE GOT THEIR DUTCH UP  wicker frames, were specimens of tho  robes to be worn by the peers and peeresses at next year's great function. This  inspection,   which   was   superintended  by the duke, was  to  enable  the  cos-  turners to  get  the exact  tint of  the  crimson velvet and tho position of the  ermine and miniver and other details  for the  all-important   making  of  the  robes,   on   which   work   will   now   be  started in earnest.    The   British  museum has been besieged by those who  are searching for news of the dresses  and regulations of previous coronations.  Queen   Alexandra   has   ordered   from  Delhi a quantity of tho finest embroidery,  for which the former capital  of  India is so  famous, which will adorn  her majesty's robes at the coronation  ceremonies.    This   action,   which   has  produced   the   greatest satisfaction, is  duo to the.good offices of the vicerine,  who when recently in England, showed  the   queen   some   priceless   Delhi   embroideries and so stimulated royal Interest as to cause the present order to  be given.           .   .,:_  Eva Ray Hamilton Again.  WILKESBARRE, Pennsylvania, November 24.���One hundred dollars, the  forfeited cash bail of Eva Hamilton,  widow of Robert Ray Hamilton, has  been turned over by the court to a committee of. lawyers for dispolsal. The  woman came into prominence twelve  years ago, when she attempted to force  upon her husband a child that was not  their1 own. Hamilton," who came from  the old revolutionary family,- felt the  exposure of his wife's trick keenly and  disappeared. Later he was found dead  in the west while hunting. Shortly after  the exposure in regard to the child Eva  Hamilton attacked her nurse, and later  attacked her father, William Steel of  Monroe'Township. She was arrested and  gave cash bail to appear for trial, but  has nipver appeared. Today the bail  was declared forfeited. It probably will  be used'to purchase law books for the  Bar.- Association.

CINCINNATI, November 24.���Leonard S. Smith, president of a manufacturing company, recently received a  letter at his home in Avondale, a suburb, threatening the abduction of his  six year old child unless he would place  $5000 in an envelope and leave it at a  point designated at a certain time. Mr.  Smith left the envelope as directed, but  it was filled with blank paper. Two men  appeared, but did not take the envelope.  They were not arrested. The child is being guarded.  More Serious Than Reported.  LONDON, November 24.���This morning's dispatches from South Africa show  that the recent fighting near Villicrs-  dorp, southwest of Standerton, as to  which lord Kitchener reported nothing  beyond the attack on 100 railroad pioneers, was really a serious affair. It  seems that Grobelaar's commando succeeded in surrounding and capturing a  British force of 100 British pioneers.  Subsequently colonel Remington came  up with reinforcements and after heavy  fighting compelled the Boers to retire  and to release their prisoners. The British losses included major Fisher killed  and three officers wounded. The casualties among the men have not yet been  reported.  No Traffic in Coronation Seats.  LONDON, November 24.���American  millionaires may buy'up steamship lines,  provide London with an electric transit  system, organize the iron and steel industry into gigantic combinations and  capture. an occasional Gainsboro, but  society draws' the line at traffic in  coronation seats. Not even the era of  good feeling has prevented acrid strictures on the reports that American  women are having coronation robes  made, their husbands having bought  seats from British peers. The social flat  has already gone out that no American  woman "shall enter the abbey unless  they have previously married peers.  The suggestion has been made that the  attendance at the abbey shall not exceed ten thousand, but nobody has seen  the plans by which so large a numfoar  cai. be accommodated. Many erroneous  acccuiits have been published of alteration in the consecration service. The  i order followed in 1838 will be followed  LONON, November 24.���Once more  has Joseph Chamberlain, the colonial  secretary approved his right and title  to be the most thoroughly hated British  statesman. The storm now raging in  Germany over his animadversions on  the Prussian army has had a powerful  reflex in Great Britain, where regardless  of party ties, Mr. Chamberlain has been  severely criticized for uselessly "putting  his foot into it." On all sides may be  heard iterated expi essions of opinion  by British business men and politicians;  who, while they perhaps believe Mr.  Chamberlain was correct ir. what he  said, denounce the uttering of such sentiments. It is recalled that Mr. Chamberlain's utterances regarding the czar  and tho Anglo-American-German alliance has been the causes of tho only  serious outbreaks of anti-British feeling  on the continent in recent times. It is  no exaggeration to say that the financial world of England would be delighted to have Mr. Chamberlain muzzled when intending to speak on England's foreign relations. As might be  expected, Mr. Chamberlain simply takes  the whole affair with his usual cynical  indifference. He is staying quietly at  Birmingham and is not exhibiting any  particular interest in this storm he has  raised. xyy\$$gm  At the colonial office a reporter ofthe  Associated Press was informed that Mr.  Chamberlain did not care to enter into  any controversy and would stand by  what he said. If the German papers  continue to misrepresent him it cannot  be helped, according to Mr. Chamberlain's point of view. At tho other government departments also the belief is  the whole agitation will die a natural  death and that everything will come out  all right. There is no doubt, however,  that by the latest break Mr. Chamberlain has seriously, perhaps irreparably,  damaged his reputation with the better  classes in England.

The tug Robert Haddon is a  wreck,  but  her  crew was  saved.

Murphy, of the recorder's court,  today discharged the jury which has  been hearing evidence for the past  week in the third trial of Edward As-  cher on the charge of murdering Val-  more C. Nichols and ordered the arrest  for misconduct of jurors James Pou-  pard and James Saucr and also officer O'Keefe, who was one of the officers in charge of the jury. The three  men were arrested and held in $500  bail. They afterwards were released.  They denied tho charges. Judge  Murphy issued a statement in explanation of his action. He says that Pop-  pard during the examination as to his  qualifications to serve as a juror denied  that he knew any of Ascher's family,  when, as the judge had since learned,  ho is in debt to Louis Ascher, the defendant's brother. Saucr and Poupard  are charged with endeavoring to belittle to' other jurors testimony of witnesses and create sentiment in favor  of the prisoner. Both are charged with  buying liquor on which O'Keefe became  intoxicated on November 5th,  Jersey coast. The Haddon picked up the  Flottbeck yesterday afternoon after  dark. The ship, under command of captain Singer, was bound for New York  fiom Plymouth, England, with a caxgo  of whito clay and minerals. The tug  was commanded by captain Start. She  had a crew of seven men and the ship  had a crew of 24 men all told.  "Converted" Thirty Times.  PARIS, November 24.���-Lamar Lewis,  a Boston youth of the "Chimmie Fad-  den" type, has betaken himself to Belgium, the French police showing a disposition to lay hands on him. For two  years he had been exciting the religious  sympathies of American and English  Christians here���chiefly pious old women and clergymen���by his mental  struggles in search of the true faith.  At first he was a Protestant and  wanted to become a Catholic. No  sooner had he apparently got settled  In tho Catholic fold than ho wanted to  be shown the way to become a Protestant Lewis lived exceedingly well, wore  fine clothes and was able to borrow!  money during the periods of religious  instruction, and always got a lot of  presents when he was finally received  into the new denomination. From data  collected it is calculated that he was  converted at least thirty times. Finally  some Americans happened to compare  notes, and then decided that the young  man's moral evolution ought to ba  turned over to the police. It is said that  Lewis formerly was a rider In the Bar-i  num-Bailey circus.  Chamberlain in Poor Health.

One is the  Trout Lake Topic. It wants a riding  made up of the Lardeau and Trout Lake  mining divisions and the Duncan river  portion of the- Ainsworth mining division. Such a riding would have a population of about 1000. The Revelstoke  Herald and Mail want a riding with  Revelstoke as the center. Such a riding with thc Lardoau country cut off  would have less than 2000 population.  The Golden Era and the Canterbury  Outlook want northeast Kootenay, with  its less than 2000 of population, to remain as it is. The Kaslo Kootenaian  wants a riding mado up of the Ainsworth mining division alone, which has  a population of about 2500. Were the  wishes of these six newspapers granted,  7i>00 of the population of Kootenay  would have four members, and the remaining 22,500 would havo four. This  is the kind of representation Kootenay  and Yale and the lower Fraser country  have been denouncing for ten years or  more.  Too short a time has elapsed since  E. V. Bodwell announced his intention  to run for office for the newspapers of  the province to give their views on his  candidacy. A.s far as they have expressed themselves, the V. V. & E. press  ip solid for him; but it is noteworthy  that his candidacy is not looked on with  favor by a single newspaper other than  the V. V. & E. organs. There are a number pf newspapers in the province that  oppose the Dunsmuir govern ment, yet  who do not favor subsidizing either the  V. V. & E. or any other railway with  money or land. These newspapers appear to be a unit against Mr. Bodwell.  This is significant, inasmuch.atf it goes  to show that the people, if they had a  chance, would vote against Mr. Bodwell.  The Tribune, is of opinion that Mr. Bod-  ency in Kootenay on his policy as outlined in the Victoria Times. The people, outside of the few who hope to reap  temporary advantages, are opposed to  subsidizing railways and, getting nothing in return. If railways cannot be  built without,, fip.ajicial assistance from  the province, then-let-the-province use  its credit in building the railways, and  owning them after they are built. Ownership does not of necessity mean operation, but it' means something that is  of far more importance to.- tho people,  that is, control of rates. If the,Dominion government,- as is now. announced,  is willing to,subsidize  province, it is��� not at all likely.that the  subsidies, would '-be, withheld- simply, because the construction of the-roads was  undertaken by, the province.  The mining.laws.of British.Columbia  have come., in, for- much blazna in the  past two,years.. Companies, which have  failed attribute, their, failure to the  mining laws.- Companies that* have been  successful; however,, dp, not, seem, to  haye been.worrie<l by our���-bacnaws..Two  instances, may; he- cited. One. is, of-a  mine situate in .the Slocan. _ Its original  owners made money out of the-property  and sold' it to an old-co,untry .company.  The. . company worked the  property according to oldrcountrj*/methods, and the property-is-now shut down.  The name of -the .company, is tho Queen  Bess Proprietary, Limited.', The. other  instance.! is; of a. mine-.situate, in. Nelson  district. ln( 1893* the,property was acquired byian-oldTCOuntry: company,/who  worked it-for:-sixor, seven.yearsj.worked  itT until: there- was-, little-, ini sight except  debts. The company, was; reorganized  and a new�� man. placed in-control.' Today, taking every things into considera-r  tion, th,ere.are few, mines.-ia thexquntry  in, better, shape,, and' the.. repoiKtsi of ,the  company; have not-a-word to say-about  bad- mining laws or labor, troubles. The  name-. of this company*; is - the Hall  Smelting- &. Mining. Company.; E. V.  Bodwell1 of Victoria,, now that- he- Is  in "politics, should read, the rppo.r'ts.. Qf,  the,. two , compjauies, referred. to. After  -reading them he would probably, revise  his policy on.the "mining industry?' .  Charles Munro, M. P.

Govempi^n.t  or;the Opposition caucus,, but,almpstiin-  variably- voting-, with. the. Opposition  then,under- the . leadership of, J.osepja  Martin.,, He was. one., of- the thirteen  Who. voted, for-the V. V. &,E. subsidy.  So Mr., Munrp's. recent." declaration  should.-not; be of.-anyi particular, signifl-;  cance. The.only-gain made by the. thirteen is Richard. McBride of. D_ewd.ney(  and as, the, V. V. &. E. railway, if b.uilt,  would- not; give, the. farmers, of .-Dewdney  any relief: from the C. P.

Oomp*res��ed Air, Is Suggested.  To the Editor of The Tribune: There  is much discussion going on at present  abput the eflicient. lighting, of the  city, and the best and cheapest means  of It might not be.uninteresting if you would give space to the  m'atter in.the columns bf your.paper to  bring before the nptice. of the public  tbe merits of the compressed air, system as a valuable agent for so doing.  An air - compressor installed  :n Nelson, at' much less expense than  an electric plant, and when, installed  tbe working of same.would,be. cheaper  and the,, uses, tc which, it could be iput  moie numerous.  There, is no power house required, the  plant consisits- of a shaft sunk to a.sufficient-depth to obtain.the air-pressure  required/ ending in a receiving tank  for the air and water. Water is cjirrie.d-  to, the head* pf the shaft and air is carried- do^n' the shaft by the water and  compressed in passage, and;delivered- in  the receiving tank six times drier than  the atmosphere and at the same temperature as.the water. These two fea-  tures. are of the greatest i'rr.portanc3,  overcoming, as.- they do, the, serious  objection: to. the mechanical compressor in its loss, of ppwer due ,tp .the heat-,  ir.g of air and cooling in transmission.  There are no moving, parte tc the cpm-  liresspr;  no machinery in rrietipn.

Although the compositor is generally  regarded as the type of sober reliability, there are moments when he even  lapses into humor which is none the  less amusing because it is usually unconscious and unpremeditated.  It must have  been  in a  moment of-  ' very   uncommon   forgctfulness   that   a  ' compositor mado a friend of the late  ' Mr. Richard   Proctor,   the astronomer,  (who used to tell the story), say of his  hero   in   a   sentimental   and   touching  poem: "Ho kicked her under the cellar  Fiairs," when the poet had written, "He  kisscu  her  uuder the  silent stars,"   a  ���.cry  different  wd more commendable  thing.  But some of these lapses of the com-  ', positor suggest that the humor is not  always   unconscious;   and   one   cannot  help suspecting, that the compositor in  an announcement of a new company,  iuformed   the   public  that  the   capital  would   consist   of   "teu   thousand   five-  pound snares," know from painful ex-  ��� perience that company shares occasionally partake of the nature of snares.  It is ditficult to find any excuse for  tlie gentleman who in setting up an  account of, a railway accident which  proved fatal to an old- lady .informed  readers that "after the train had passed  over her it was found that the lady had  been cut in two calves."  It was- only the misplacing of a few,  commas that was responsible for thc  following announcement in one of pin-  daily papers:  "After him came lord Rosebery on bis  head, a white hat on his feet, large but  well polished' boots on his brow, a dark  cloud -in his hand, the inevitable walk-.  ��� ing stick in his eyes, a stern aspect in  gloomy silence."  Nor- was it the same compositor who  was responsible for the following "description of lord Roberts as he appeared in the jubilee procession: "Next  came lord Roberts riding. On a grey  Arab steed "wearing a splendid scarlet  uniform, covered with medals on his  head, a fleld marshal's hat with plumes  in his hand, the boton of a fleld marshal on his rugged features, a smile of  pleasure as he ackowledged the thundering plaudits of the crowd."  A'short time ago a startling notice  might have been seen in a station -n  Warwickshire, warning people aganst  - crossing the line, "as. a man bad been  killed by so doing by order of the directors." This is almost as alarming as  tbe following notice of a suicide: "Dec-cased blew out his brains after bidding farewell ro his wife and childre.i  with a f.un."  At a foot note to a poem printed in  a provincial paper some time ago wero  -these���lines,���which���must��� have���been���a-  starlling revelation to the poet's family  and friends: "The above beautiful pcem  was composed half a century ago by a  gentleman who has long been in his  grave for his own amusement."  .Economy in space is no doubt an admirable quality in a compositor, but  that it was possible to indulge that  quality too far was proved by the Intel  SAVINGS BANK DEPARTMENT:  Interest allowod on deposits.

There is one notable exception, however, to the rul��, and a railway exists  in that country which seems to have  been entirely overlooked. It is not a  large undertaking, and it may be that  its very insignificance has been to it a  means of grace. Certainly the shareholders have no reason to complain ofthe want of attention bestowed on their  property run by the state officials.  The railway runs from the harbor of-  Poti,  on the  Black  Sea,  inland for a  distance  of twenty-five  miles  through  the manganese mining district of thc  Caucasus.    The total cost of construction was  ��150,000, and   in   two   years  the profits were equal to that sum.   The  line has only been working since 1895,  and during the last few years the receipts  have  been   ��150,000,   while the  working   expenses, have   not   exceeded  ��13,000 per annum. This shows a yearly,  proiit of over ��5000 per mile of track.  ,   It will naturally be thought that under these .circumstances the managers  are doing everything in their power to  study the wants of the district through  which the railway runs, but unfortun-!  ately that is not the case.   No passengers are carried, and only ono kind' of  material,  namely,  the  manganese  ore,  just as it comes from the mines.   There,  is not sufiicieiit plant to deal with the,  traffic, and the business, of the mine-'  owners greatly suffers in consequence.  Steamers may be chartered to load man-'  ganese at the harbor' of Poti, and are,  often kept lying there for days before,  tlieir cargo is brought down.   The stations are obstructed with ore, and manganese producers have "no redress.  This want of foresight, however, on  the part of tho railway company will*  probably 'lead to its' downfall, for it  stands j;o reason that an important industry cannot long be allowed to lan-  ���guish without some effort being made-  by those interested. The Russians, however, are a long-suffering people, and.  they seem to- regard it as impossible to;  have any reform effected unless it is,  initiated by their government.

Not long ago a well known member of  parliament when referring in grateful  [.. - ttrms to hisuniversity a _ his alma mater  was horrified to find that the compositor had transferred his gratitude to  "alum water;" and a well known actor  who had narrowly escaped being run  over by a train was announced as having appeared at the   Theater "tbe  same evening in three pieces," which is  eloquent to the vitality, and'determination of the actor.���Tit Bits.  Best Paying Eailwiy in the World.  The railways in Russia are, generally  speaking,   either   the   property   of  the  government  or  under  its  control.    In  our own country, of course, parliament  reserves   to   itself  nominal   powers   in  railway matters, but to the general public the advantage of this reservation is  not very obvious.   The Russian government, however, is nothing if not auto-  .  .cratic,  and in this connection  fortun-  f-*ately its powers  are exercised ln the  interests of the public, with the result  Jliai passenger lares and goods rates  William Leslie Edison and Thomas  Edison, jr.,- sons of the great inventor,  are now all ready for their proposed*  cruise to Florida in a glass-inclosed  launch, and will sail in a few days from  Baltimore. The glass launch was taken  for a trial trip this week to the Susquehanna Plats, whero the men of the.  party had a try at the canvas-back's and  red-heads. Seventy gallons of gasoline  wero put on board the Quananiche,  which it is expected will carry the boat  as far as Norfolk.  William Edison, known on Broadway  in New York as "Billy," and who gave  moral support to his brother "Tommy"  when the latter took for his wife Miss.  Marie Louise Tuohey of the Casino is  enthusiastic about the prospective trip.  "While there is, of course," he said, "a  certain amount of danger in making  _such_a_long_trip_in_such_a_boat>_still_it_is.  comparatively safe traveling along the  bays and rivers in our boat. She is built  as strong as the best of workmen could  make her, and in case of a storm we can  always run her into the nearest harbor.  "The advantage of such a small boat,  is that we can go where we want, stop  when we want and see any amount of  pleasure. The feedom of traveling in  such a boat is simply great, and we always see a fine time .with our little  party.       -      ���    *  "All of the ladies are eager sportswomen, and enjoy hunting and fishing  as much as Ave do. They are all good  .shots. My wife has often shot large  gamo in the Adirondacks, and I have a  hard time keeping even with her."  William Edison is the youngest of  Thomas A. Edison's two sons by hia first  marriage. His wife was Miss Blanche  Fowler Travers, daughter of Dr. Edward M. Travers of this city, whom he  married in 1899, at the home of a relative of the bride in Elizabeth. The  wedding was a very important affair in  Elizabeth social circles. Mr, Edison is  an electrician. .  Thomas A. Edison, jr., is older than  his brother, and is also an electrician.  He has announced at various times that  he had perfected plans to harness the  sea, to snapshot a thought, to telephone  across the ocean, had invented a wonderful lamp and' done other marvelous  things calculated to make his eminent  father look like "small potatoes."   "  Young Thomas Edison married Miss  Tuohey in November, 1899 and there  was much domestic discord following,  the wife declares. She said her husband  was a "high-flyer" and spent money  like water and that he had a mountain  of clothes shoes and other wearing apparel. Mrs. Edison is now playing at  the Madison Square theater.  The two brothers have elieady mapped out an interesting plan of pleasure  touring for next autumn. A handsome 100-foot steel launch is beins* built  in New York especialy adapted for  cruising in the Florida waters. With  the exception of the interior woodwork,  there will not be a bit of wood on'her,  and she will be far stronger and more  seaworthy than the present boat. The  new boat will develop a speed of only  about eleven knots a hour. Her beam  will bo about fifteen feet, and she will  draw only about three and a half feet.

Byers & Company, agents  for the Giant Powder Company, have  decided to have a powder day, and Wednesday has been decided on as the most  convenient. Orders can be placed for  powder at any time, but will be filled  on Wednesdays. In a circular issued hy  the powder company in this connection  it is pointed out that this course was  forced on the powder company chiefly  through the action of the Nelson city  council in refusing the use of the city  wharf  and  other  slight concessions.  H. C. Killeo.i, the engineer in charge  of the public work which the provincial government has in hand in thc in ���  terior of the province), has returned  from Kast Kootenay, where he laid  out the work for a bridge at Michel  and one across Perry creek near Old  Town. He leaves this morning to inspect the road from Deer Park on Kootenay lake to the Blue Bird mine, a dis-  j tanre of three miles.. This Toad Tvas  i fount jointly by the owners of the Bins,  Bird group of mines and the government, and the company is now taking  in a concentrator to its property over it.  A meeting of the new labor party  which has been organized in this city  will be held in the Miners' Union hall  on Friday evening for tho purpose of  electing officers.  John Fitzgerald, the Fernie man committed to stand his trial by stipendiary  magistrate Armstrong upon a charge  of attempted murder, was brought to  Nelson last evening by constable Henderson. Fitzgerald is charged with having used an axe on his man, but the  victim of the assault is now out of  danger.   ' . "*  J. M. Cameron, the Socialist, whose  mission it is to organize branches  wherever he can, did not meet with  very much success in the Slocan. He  doubtless owes his failure to Tom Mulvey, one of the pioneers of Slocan, who  met him on the platform and put the  visiting Socialist to rcut. Tom claims  to be semthing of a Socialist himself,  but he has no room for the Socialism  as advocated by Cameron. As nearly  as can be learned Tom is a Socialist  of the Edward Bellamy school, and he  poured a broadside of rhetoric into the  Sccialism as preached by Cameron until there was not enough left of the new  propaganda to wad a^ gun, and Slocan  as a result will have to get along without it. ,  NELSON, B.C.  KASLO, B.C.  ESTABLISHED 1892  SANDON, B.C.  Gus Theiss and his two partners are  meeting with great success in their  placer mining venture on Perry creek.  Their ground is about a mile above Old  Town, a point>more or less famous in the  old days of placer mining on Perry  creek*. They are now down about eighty  feet and are drifting along the bed of  the old channel of the creek, and are  taking out on an average of $20 a day  for the tthree men. Their plant is about  the most perfect of its kind ever seen  in the province. They have a water  wheel attached to their flume which develops sufficient power to run their  hoist, and the, water after driving the  wheel is 'utilized to wash the "gravel  through their sluice boxes. A number  of other mining ventures on the same  creek are.said to promise good results.  H. BYERS & CO.

Gracey has returned from a  visit to the Imperial and Eva groups  on Lexington mountain in the Lardeau.  He has a crew of twelve men at work  on the property and the force will be  maintained all winter.  D. Wilson, inspector of schools for  Kootenay district, is now out of the  hospital. He came to Nelson three  .weeks ago suffering as he supposed froni  a broken arm, but it turned out afterwards that his shoulder was dislocated.  W. H. Aldridge and D. W. Moore of  the Trail smelter, H. E. Macdonnell,  general freight agent of the Canadian  Pacific, W. F. Newell of the Selby  smelter at San Francisco, D. C. Johnson of the Everett smelter, and J. J.  Campbell" of the Nelson smelter, left  this morning for St. Paul. As the existing contracts run out' at the end of the  year, and all of the smelters represented by the above mentioned persons  have been handling Kootenay ores, it  is presumed that the present visit may  have its effect -on smelting contracts  in Kootenay. All of the smelters mentioned are operating outside of the  United States smelter trust and It is  not unlikely that such arrangements  will be' made as will place it out of  the power of; the big smelter trust to  hamper the silver-lead mining industry  of this province.' x-  The statement that the recently organized assayers* institute has elec;ed  its officers is iuconect. All that has  been donu is to place certain members  in nomination and before any election  takes place tha assayers on the coast  will be invited to put in other nominations. The institute has beer, formed as  the result of the failure of the provincial government to carry out the act  recently passed by the provincial legislature which provides for the examining  of assajers and the fining of these who  practice without a certificate. So far the  enly result of the a��_-ajers' examinations that have been held has been -.he  sale by the government of certificates  to the successful candidal es, which are  of little use so long as persons not  proR^rlj^.certiftcated^are^allowed^to.carnyt  en business as assayers. The enforcs-  nr-ent of the act of the legislature is  said to be the chief object of the assayers of Kootenay in organizing their  iistitute.  The shareholders of the Dundee  company have heard nothing of the  rumored deal on the Dundee. Although  the mine is said to have few equals in  view of prospective value, the affairs  of the company are in somewhat of a  tangle. This is due to the former deal  which did not go through. This deal it  is understood was promoted by some  London stock brokers who, it is alleged, ag.-.-eed to purchase the stock of  the Dundee at 25 cents per share and  also put ?200,000 in the treasury for development purposes. This flotation is  said to have failed owing to the unsettled state (f the London stock market  upon the outbreak of the trouble in  South Africa, and a suit was to have  been stated by -the Dundee company  against the London men for damages  ftr breach of contract. Nothing has  ever been heard of the suit and it is  suggested that tha iecent deal in Du 1-  dee is but a revival of the old one whijh  ;rissed fire. The work that is now going on at lhe property is orly such as  would be necessary for its irspectioa  and it is being carried on by a crew of  nine men under the foremanship of  Tom Flynn of Ymir.

Otherwise all  surmises are guesses in the dark. The  borrowing powers are still ample, although the Boer war has sent down  consuls from 112 to 92, but a large proportion of the military expenses falls  upon a limited class ot; income payers  which cannot endure increased burdens.

The importance of registration should  not be overlooked. Householders who  often pay more revenue to the city than  property-owners must make a declaration as to their qualifications and hand  it to the city clerk this week; if they do  not they cannot vote at the next city  election.  The element that was defeated at the  polls on Tuesday last are a.gain at  work, and with the same object in view.  Mayor Fletcher and alderman Selous  are both J. P.'s, Charles Augustus  Waterman, adjutant or the West Kootenay Power & Light Company force, is  =roadr-tax=collector.=i=It=is=an=easy-mat-=  ter to obtain a householder's., declaration when the road-tax is heing collected, provided, always, that the party  paying the road-tax is likely to vote the  right way, and the two J. P.'s above-  named are never far distant  The scheme is a good one, and is being worked for all it is worth. The West  Kootenay Power & Light Company know  that if the City of Nelson builds a power  plant on Kootenay river, that there  will be no show for it to gain an entrance into Nelson in the future, and  the management of that company is  making every effort to prevent such a  thing happening. One way to prevent  it is to elect a mayor and council who  will do as the present mayor and council have done.  This question means much to Nelson.  First. It means that an outside corporation is attempting to interfere in  our local affairs, and that these attempts are being aided by nine out. of  ten of the managers of outside corporations resident in Nelson. The influence  of these men must not be overlooked.  Second. It means that tho growth of  Nelson is to be retarded so as to enable  tha West Kootenay Power & Light  Company to have a monopoly of selling  electric power in the vi��mty of Nelson.  Third. It means that the investment  of the city in the electric lighting business is to be rendered valueless.  Fourth. It means that the people of  .. elson must do as they arc bidden to  by men who take their orders from  places outside of Nelson.  So far the people of Nelson have been  true to themselves. Let them continue  to be true and the gang of grafters who  are now at worlc will get a repulse that  will settle them for good. But there  is only one way in which this can be  accomplished; at the ballot-box. The  ballot-box can only be reached by having your name on the voters' list.
