Mr. Szontagh has said: '"ine men who  are here can hold tlieir jobs, but they  must <:do their work right, and do as  much of it as the union men-did." Mr.  Szontagh evidently thinks that the time  is past when they were entitled to any  concessions, and as a result the smelter  company is.likely to have another strike  on its hands.

He was run down by a car in some unknown mariner. No one saw the accident and its cause is a mystery. Gunaer was an expert machinist from Liberty, Nebraska, who came to work .for  the Le Roi mine when that property  was reopened in September. He was  apparently doing somo work on the  tramway when he was caught by an  ascending or descending car and crushed about the head so severely as to  cause death within half an hour. The  cars do not cross at the point where he  , was injured, and by stepping on the  other track he could readily have escaped.    Deceased was one of the most  Bubonic Plague at Honolulu.

Outwitted and outpointed with a  fighter just the same .as himself, McGovern had to lower his colors this afternoon at the Nutmeg Athletic club to  Young Corbett within six minues from  the start of the fight.  Young Corbett, who, outside of ring  parlance is Billy. Roth well, got the better of the champion in less than two  $25,000 on the side that in case the lads  meet again, Terry will win."

November 29.���As  a result of a highbinder outbreak two  Chinese are dead and two others mortally wounded lie at the receiving hospital. There were two murderous attacks, both in Chinatown.. They were  the culmination of a long standing  fued between rival highbinder associations. The men who were killed outright were, killed as the lay sleeping  in a bunlc at 902 .Clay street. Their,  names are Quay Lucy and Suy Duck.  Loue Fook, better known as Little  Loue, and Jue Do are the other victims. Fook was shot four times as he  was entering his gambling place at 102  Waverly place, accompanied by Do,  who was his body guard. As^Little Loue  fell mortally wounded. Do-drew his  revolver, but before he could use-it he  received a bullet in the neck." Shortly  after thc shooting the police arrested  a notorious highbinder, who gave his  name as Lee Yu, on suspicion of having  wounded both men. About -fifteen minutes after the perpetration of the crime  another occurred at 902 Clay street.  Sergeant Donovan/ and officers Will-  man and McNamar ran to the place and  going upstairs they found Quan Luey  and Sue Duck dead. Both had been shot  while they slept in a small bunk in a  room on the second floor. After the  shooting a large squad of police was  sent into Chinatown and arrested half  a doze*ii highbinders who were heavily  armed and bent on avenging the murder of Little Loue.  MANY  OP   THE  UNFORTUNATES  ON THE EMIGRANT TRAIN  WERE ITALIANS.  been made to determine the copper,  values, thc owners being content to  wait for a smelter test to determine  this point. Although the vein has now  been crosscut for a distance af 12 feet,  tho hanging wall has not yet been  reached, and everything points to the  find as being one of the most important  that has been made in the vicintiy of  Nelson for some time.  *-roun*ds-of-flghtTiig~ana���dW it so per  fectly that there was no doubt about  it. The shock to the New York enthusiasts who crowded the boxing pavilion  when the little champion was knocked  out in the second round was a repetition  of the disappointment exhibited by the  adherants of John L. Sullivan when  Corbett defeated him in New Orleans.  Terry was as fit as the proverbial  fiddle, but was not fast enough for his  man. From the word "go" the men  went at each other like game cocks and  it looked as if either would go out in  the first round. McGovern got the worst  of tho opening round, and in his endeavor to got in left himself open several times. Corbett stood off McGovern  on every lend and trick, but the little  Brooklyn boy went on as if thero wero  nothing to >it but tho winner's end of  the purse.  When McGovern was knocked down  In the opening round there were cries  of dismay from hia backers, but his  wonderful recuperative powers were  equal to the occasion and he was on his  feet within seven seconds. This downfall seemed to take the stamina out of  McGovern, but he fought the round in  clever style and tried hard to stem the  tide of defeat which seemed to have set  against him. He tried all his rushing  work, whieh proved so profitable on  forriier occasions, but Corbett met his  every curve and countered -hard on  neck, jaw and head.  NEW YORK, November 29:���In sporting circles here nothing was talked  more of today than the defeat of Terry  McGovern by "Young Corbett' in Hartford yesterday afternoon. , That McGovern was beaten by a two handed rushing  fighter like himself was conceded by  everybody, but McGovern's friends are  evidently of the opinion that should  the boys meet again McGovern will relieve his lost laurels. This afternoon,  Sam Harris, McGovern's manager,  posted $2500 to bind another match, the  time and place to be at the will of  "Young Corbett." In an interview Harris said: "In order to get a return match  with "Young Corbett," Terry will agree  to knock him out before the limit of  twenty or twenty-five rounds is reached  or forfeit the entire purse. I do not  wish to take away any of the credit due  to "Young Corbett" over his great victory," continued Harris, "but I still in-  valued empoyees of -the Le Roi No. 2 j sist that the result of the fight was due  ^nine, and his untimely death is greatly J to a fluke.   I will wager aa much as  Why Colonel Gregory Resigned.  VICTORIA, November 29.���The Colonist says editorially. that the reason  colonel Gregory resigned from the command of the Fifth regiment was the  unfair treatment accorded to the regk.  TnenTiiy-the department-at Ottawa. It  seems that the usual grant made by the  government to the regiment is about  $1000 iu arrears and also the department  offered to pay tho grant for the current year, but refused to pay the arrears. The commanding officer's rooms  at the drill hall were also taken away  from the colonel and handed over to the  district officer commanding.  ADRIAN, Michigan, November 29.���  Just before the coroner's inquest on the  Wabayh railroad wreck adjourned, late  today, conductor Trowl of the ill-fated  immigrant train testified as to the number of persons who were on that train.  According to his statement there were  190 passengers oh board. When he was  ordered to meet the Continental Limited he was at' Holloway and received  his orders from operator Martindale.  He read the order in the presence of  the/operator and took three copies, giving two to the two engineers of his  train and retaining one for himself.  The engineer of engine 151 received the  order first. In each instance when the  order was delivered to -him the fireman was present. He understood .the  train was to. sidetrack at Seneca for.  the Continental Limited. If the train  had passed Seneca he would have set  the automatic brakes. Had the brakes  been.set.it would have required one-  eighth of a mile to stop the train. "He  had no warning that anything was  wrong until he felt the shock. Conductor Trowl was. the last witness, in the  city and at the conclusion of his testimony the .inquest was adjourned until  Tuesday next.  DETROIT,*-November 29.���In an interview this evening with Thomas E.  Moran, deputy customs collector at "this  port, he practically verifies the estimate  -that at least 80 lives were lost in Wednesday night's collision and awful holocaust on.. the . Wabash railroad near  Seneca. Two emigrant cars in which  the greatest loss of life occurred and in  which so many of the victims were  roasted to death were part of the emigrant train which crossed'the'; Detroit  river from Canada on the ferry jboat  Great Western Wednesday afternoon,  and deputy Moran inspected the baggage qf its passengers. He says there  were at the very least calculation 100  Italians in the two cars. In addition  to these there was 10 more in the smoking car, which was ahead of the two  emigrant cars. Official advices in the  oflice of superintendent Burns of this  division of the Wabash railroad said  that of the Italians in the wreck 24 escaped, unhurt and'10 were injured and  taken to the company's hospital at  Peru, Indiana. Subtracting these 24  from the 110 emigrants deputy Moran  says were on the train, leaves a death  list among the Italians alone of 76.  These bodies were burned to ashes in  the fire which followed the wreck. In  addition 8 other bodies were recovered  and identified, which makes a total of  84 dead. * *   *    .

They will not be  permitted, however, to remove any of  the  military supplies from- Colon and"  their   parole  will   prevent  them   from  joining any of the scattered bands of*  liberals at other-points.  WASHINGTON, D. C, November 29.���  With the restoration of order and trafiic "  on the isthmus of Panama' it Is expec- ,  ted that the navy department will be '  able to withdraw   some of 'the   United  States  warships .now on ,duty in that -  quarter and it is now probable that one "  ship    will    he   withdrawn   on    either  side of the isthmus. There will be no "  haste, however, in reducing the naval  strength, as the officials feel that the  surrender of .the liberals on the isthmus may not" terminate their struggle  there. The country is so extensive and  the signs of unrest at interior points  are so numerous' that itjs thought that  threro may be ia recurrence of .trouble  if the insurgents, at other points con- "  tinue to show strength. When the Iowa  is withdrawn she will   probably   go to  Talcapanc to be .docked. The Machias,  when  relieved  will  come  north  to  be  docked.  COLON, November 29.���The terms of  surrender agreed on at yesterday's con- .  ference held on board the United States  gunboat Marietta   at   which   the   commanding officers of the   Marietta,   the.  British  cruiser Triune and the French  cruiser   Suchet,   lieutenant   commander  McCrea of the Machias,  captain Perry  of the Iowa, generals   Alban  and  Jeff-  eries,  representing  the  government  of  Colombia, and senor de la Rosa, who  represented  the  liberals,  were present,  are briefly as follows:   Senor de la Rosa  agreed to surrender the uoeral soluiers  now at Colon with their arms to captain   Perry   at   noon .today.    Captain  Perry in his turn agreed to hand over  these men and their arms later in the  dayJ:o general Al Dan, who_jnvhis turn  guarariteea^life~a"n"d_lihefty to all men  recently in arms against the conservative government of Colombia.   The surrender of arms was to be bona fide in  every respect.   At half past one o'clock  a large number   of   marines  and   blue  jackets  from   the  Iowa,   the  Marrietta  and the Machias landed at Colon and  proceeded   to tho   barracks.    Here   tho  arms   belonging   to   the   liberals   were  taken over by tho American, llritish and  French consuls  at  Colon  and   a  largo  concourse   of   people   who   sympathize  with the liberal Insurrection.-* tiie lib-"  eral  guard  patroling Colon  tliis morning appenred sad and downcast.   Their  bohnvlor,  however, has all along been  most praiseworthy nnd it is not an exaggeration to say that they have gained  tho respect of a very largo portion of  tho community   and especially   of   tho  foreign element during their short administration of Colon.   Later in tho day  general Alban, accompanied by officers  of the conservative government of Colombia, arrived here from Panama and  senor de la Rosa, representing general  Domingo  Diaz,  whose secretary he is,  surrendered   himself    and   the    liberal  troops to the conservative general in the  presence of captain Perry and the naval  and consular officials above mentioned.  For years past the harbor   of   Colon  has not been so crowded as it is today.  Fivo men of war and several German,  Italian and British merchant and passenger steamers, as well asother steamers, are in port.    The men of war are  moored to the wharves.   The only flag-  bedecked ship in the harbor is the Colombian   conservative   gunboat oeneral  Pinzon. .  When general Alban received the surrender of the liberals the Pinzon blew  a series of noisy quick and irregular  notes from her fog horn indicative of  her joy at the proceedings. She is now  lying quite close to the dock. General  Alban is on board.  The majority of the American marines and blue jackets have returned to  their vessels. The Suchet has landed a  detachment of marines on the property  of the French Canal Company. American marines are still guarding the pier3  and the railroad station. Over 200 men  entered the city with general Alban.  De la Rosa on handing Alban his sword  said: "I accept the conditions of the  treaty to safeguard the lives and liberty  of my soldiers in Colon. As for my  brother and myself we personallv decline to accept the conditions of the  treaty."  *j  5\  ���y  '.���%.  f- K  ,r\  -r_v  '��� <L  -.rf 0  THE  NEIiSON TRIBUNE,  SATURDAY  MORNING,  NOVEMBER 30, 1901  P^mm^^^ to ^gggg^gss^  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  rn  to  to  to  to  to  UDSON'S  I.S'CC It MlltATKll  lliTO  c ODvn^^.3ST"3r  CHRISTMAS GIFTS  It. seems, perhaps, ii liltlu eurly to mention them, but every lady prefers  In give her friends something of her own handiwork nnd it is high time to  select nnd choose Uio necessary material.

Tatlow of Vancouver, who is one  of the four members of the' legislative,  assembly from that city, was in Nelson  yesterday. For two sessions, Mr. Tatlow enjoyed the distinction of being one  of the two members of* the Third party  in the house, the other being the member from Nelson riding. Mr. Tatlow  holds that the. first legislation should  be the passage of a redistribution bill;  he also holds that the members for the  Island and those from the Mainland  should be apportioned - to each section-  according to population, leaving the  members from the Island to fix the ridings to suit themselves, giving the  Mainland members the same privilege.  Mr. Tatlow said, as far as he knew,  there was no "probability of a general  election being held.  *I**I"*I**T##l**.I**l**I**I**%#l*>I*'��l*    ��T���%*|*��|��>|���I������!*��I���1#|��*|���I*��Tf  *  +  *      'NOTICE TO  SUBSCRIBERS       *~  ���I- BY   CARRIER. *  -.The failure of Thomas Eearle, who  was considered one of the solid business men of Victoria, goes to show that:  speculation and politics are more like-'  ly to result in ruin than riches.

The  mines of the Boundary have been shipping ore for less than a year and half,  and they are making a surprisingly  good record. No section of British Columbia has made or is making a better  recoi'd than the camps of which Greenwood, Phoenix, and Grand Forks are  centers. Next year it is predicted that  the output of the Boundary mines will  not be less than a million tons, every  ton of which will be smelted in local  smelters. The gold-copper mines of the  Boundary and Rossland, the gold and  the silver-copper mines of Nelson, and  the silver-lead mines of the Slocan, the  Lardeau, and of East Kootenay should  make an output of 2,000,000 tons during  the year 1902, and the value of the ore  should not be far from $2,000,000. ' If  the ore was all smelted and the bullion  all refined in British Columbia, it would  mean tbat the Kootenays and Yale  would be among the most prosperous  sections of Canada.  The Selous-Waterman-Fletcher combine" are hard at work taking the declarations of householders, so as to put  their names on the voters' list. Few  people realize the importance of this  action.

A director of a company making such a fool deal for power  as did the tramway company should not;  air his views on any question. He should  be "dead." If the Cfty of Nelson is to  make good all the fool deals that W. A.  Macdonald and his business and political cronies enter into, the people should  be made aware of it. Mr. Macdonald  does not state that of those who voted  "for" the late lamented by-law ho less  of them than 28 voted twice. These  28 are not large property owners, but  they have taken the precaution to be in  a position to have a double voice on all  questions affecting the city's interests.  Committed for Contempt.

On motion of  counsel for the directors of the company a stay was granted pending an  appeal to the United States circuit court  of appeals.. The case of Mr. Flower  was by agreement made a test one as  affecting William G. Rockefeller, Henry  K. Rogers, J. P. Mcintosh, F. P. Olcutt,  James.

LONDON, November 29.���In the course  of an important speech .at Croydon last  night the right honorable C. T. Ritchie,  secretary of. state for home affairs," declared that premier Salisbury's statement : that "No shred of independence  should be left to the republics".had been  twisted, and contorted in a way that  lord Salisbury never intended. "It was.  not intended," said the secretary, "that,  the Boers should not have a representative in the government, or that we.in-'  sisted upon unconditional surrender ex-'  cept in the sense that we could not again'  afford; the terms which had been*rejected." If any general representing the!  Boers in arms, said the speaker, made:  the proposition of peace on; the. conditions that the Boers should in the course  of time have a representative in the  government he was satisfied that such  a proposition would be referred home  by lord Kitchener and would form a  basis for the conclusion of peace. "We  desired a conclusion of Hostilities,"  concluded Mr. Ritchiei, "so that the  Boer and Briton could live together in  peace and amity and the same extraof-  dinary. success which, has attended the  administration of Egypt would be repeated in South Africa if the Boers  would only frankly acknowledge their  defeat and ask for terms."

Last year the schooner  Edward Roy, captain Gilbert, belonging  to Victorians, took 1600 skins off the  Shetland islands and she is now  en route to the same grounds. The other  schooner dispatched by the Victorians  is the new schooner Beatrice tforkham,  which will first hunt oft the Cape of  Good Hope and then proceed to join  the Roy at the Shetland islands. The  first of the Victoria fleet to leave will  be the City of San Diego which will  sail on Tuesday for the Ualifornian  coast and follow the seals north. About  thirty schooners will hunt off this coast  and five will be sent to the Asiatic  coasts.  First Step Toward War.  WASHINGTON, November 28. ��� A  step towards vrar between Colombia and  Venezuela has been taken, me state  department has receivd confirmation of  the notification from the Colombian government to Venezuela that it has terminated diplomatic relations.

That he had walked  around the boat and when he returned  Marks was gone and two thorough  searches of the boat failed to find him.  The inspector maintains positively that  Marks did not land at Folkestone. The  World correspondent saw George Marks,  a brother of the "missing man, at the  Adelphi.

He said he had expressed no opinion on the annexation  of Cuba. "This rumor was probably  made," he said, "to affect the elections  in Cuba, but nothing will come of it.

Savings Bank Branch  CURRENT BATE OF INTBBBST FAH).  IMPORTANT   MINING DEAL  Largest in History of the Boundary.  PHOENIX, November 28.���[Special  Correspondence of The Tribune.]���Evidence is, accumulating that the largest  mining deal that has taken place in the  Boundary country this year is about.to  be consummated in this camp. The deal  referred^ to is. the transfer, lease, or  purchase outright of the properties of  the Dominion ��� Copper Company by the  Liritish Columbia Copper Company, the  ' latter ueing the corporation now operating the Mother Lode mine and smelter, the latter being located at Greenwood. Practically nothing has been  given out by oilicials connected with  tlie two companies referred to, and it  is as yet diilicult to obtain thc tacts  in tiie matter. However, it is admitted,  by those in a position to known what,  is going on in the inside that a deal of  some kind is pending, and .other things  point that way most unmistakably.  For the past two weelcs or more w.  I-I Thomas of New York, the consulting engineer for the British Columbia  Copper Company, has been in and out  of Phoenix, and lately has begun a systematic examination of the Dominion  Copper Company's properties, the  ��� Brooklyn, Stemwinder, Idaho, and Rawhide. In addition to this, this week a  force of men, under the direction of Mr..  ' Thomas and Rudolph Liden, assistant  superintendent of ��� the Mother Lode  ���smelter, has been' set at work to thoroughly sample these mines, including  the large dump of the Brooklyn. Machinery was placed in the shaft house  of the Stemwinder for the. purpose of  pumping out the mino, so that it could  be inspected and sampled.  Just a year ago today the Dominion  Copper Company's properties wore started up in full blast, after heing idle for  ten months. At this time James Breen,  tho well-known smelter man, became interested in the company, becoming the  manager, with J. L. Parker as local superintendent. It was generally understood that Mr. Breen had agreed to  spend $100,000 or more on the property  in development, and to build a smelter  for the reduction of the ores, in return for which he was receive a large  block of the company's stock. Work  was prosecuted vigorously until this  last summer, when one after another of  the properties were closed upon receipt  of orders from Toronto, the Brooklyn  being the last to close down, a few  weeks'ago. No reason was given out for  this stoppage of work, but is was understood that Mr. Breen had had some misunderstanding with tho directors of the  company ��� in Toronto in regard to the'  location of the proposed smelter. While  thp Blooklyn mine was closed, the  pumps were kept running, showing that  it was . not the intention to close the  properties jpemanentlyv _   .;    ._  _===  ^"Tif-the 'meaiftime-JT^Er^Boss of To-,  ronto, who was largely instrumental  three years ago in securing the iorma-  tibn of the Dominion Copper Company,  and in getting the large capitalists in  that city to unite the interests of several claims now owned by the company,  arrived in camp, and is making his  headquarters here for the time being.  Mr. Boss, however, will not give out  the intentions of the company, although  he is one of the large shareholders.  The Dominion Copper Company has  a capital of $5,000,000, in $5 shares, the  chief'stockholders being D. D. Mann  and William. Mackenzie, the well-known  railway contractors; senator George A.  Cox, president of the Canadian Bank  of Commerce; Robert Jaffray, also of  Toronto; W. T. Smith James Breen, J.  E. Boss, and mayor G. W. Rumberger  of Phoenix, There arc few if auy small  shareholders, it being practically a  close corporation.  The properties owned by the company are the Brooklyn, Stemwinder,  Montezuma, Standard, Idaho, and Rawhide, the city of Phoenix being located  --upon a portion of the surface of the  four claims. It is no secret that since  Mr. Breen took hold the development  has been well up to the expectations,  and the properties are-worth- more today than they were a year ago, figuring simply on the quantity of ore that  has been blocked out and ready for  stoping. A large amount of work was  done this year on the Brooklyn, Stem-  winder, Idaho and Rawhide, and all of  them are regarded most favorably by  mining men generally.  There seems to be no doubt but that  the Mother Lode people would like to  secure the tonnage of the Brooklyn  group to smelt with the ore from its  own mines. As the smelter will be  doubled in size some time in January,  the new furnace now being in the process of installation, the acquirement of  the Brooklyn group, either by lease or  purchase, would give them an immense  daily tonnage immediately available.  But it is understood that should the deal  go through, as now seems more than  probable, the capacity of the smelter  will still further be enlarged to accommodate the vast quantities of orn  that can be got out of the Brooklyn  group now.

Apparently the details of the acquirement  have been arranged, although not divulged as yet, and the deal hinges on  the report of Mr. Thomas. Those most  familiar with the properties under consideration have no doubt about the outcome of the. report, as the Brooklyn  group of mines has always stood among  mining men as "one of the best groups  iu the entire Boundary country.  In addition to the above those in a  position to know what is going on in  the inside assert, that, even if the transfer outright of the Brooklyn group to  the British Columbia Copper Company,  through any unforeseen contingency,  shouldi miscarry, the properties will  start up again by tho first of the year,  and will be operated by the Dominion  Copper Company itself to their fullest  capacity.  A STUDY OF HEREDITY.  Dr. Archdall Reid, one .of the leading  scientists and evolutionists of (England,  has just published "A Study of Heredity." It is peculiarly interesting because it contains the latest scientific  views upon the subject of alcohol and  drunkards.  To those who are familiar with Dr.  Reid's writings the first five chapters  of "Alcoholism" will convey nothing  that is new, with the exception perhaps  of his theory of retrogression (mo're  adequately dealt with in the appendix)  which is a corollary of his exposition  of human evolution and is likely to  give rise to controversy in inner scientific circles. without effecting, however,  the main contention contained Aiu the  volume. Tho ground" familiar to students of the present evolution of man  is retraced in simpler language and the  subject of human .evolution by means  of disease is pursued -with a daring  and brilliant persistency. The author  suggests that the first five chapters  dealing with heredity may be skipped  by those who are interested only, in the  bearing of heredity upon inebriety, but  wc believe these chapters are indispensable to both the scientists and general  reader, who would rightly appreciate  Dr. Reid's work in this special application of his views. However, chapter 5,  entitled, The "Roots of the Empire, is  highly suggestive to the social reformer  and the politician and throws light on  hitherto inexplicable problems. It deals  with thc part played by disease in the  fortunes of the Anglo-Saxon race.  There is much in the chapter devoted  to the inebriety question to startle the  general reader. The treatment of the  subject, scientific and logical' as it is, is  so entirely novel that the breath of the  reader is taken a-.yay more than once.'  Here we have Nee-Darwinism applied  to the most pressing social problem of  the day with courage, ingenuity and  -stincoi'ifcy",rr'    ���'      ;,,;~  ' ~���'   Briefly, the autljbr argues that temperance is not an acquired moral virtue, but  an inborn characteristic. The teetotaler  abstains not because of his strong moral  fibre, his power of self-control but because of lack of inborn desire for alcohol. This lack of desire has arisen by  the elimination of those who possess  great inborn desire for alcohol, alcohol  being a poison. The race has been and  is being continued by those who havo  little or.no desire for excessive indulgence in the intoxicant. Nature, by a  long and cruel process of natural selection (which Dr. Reid would have us *ut  short by artificial selection)' is thus  evolving a race of temperate mortals.  Our well-meant temperance efforts  must continue to fail to attain the desired end so long as wc permit tho inebriate to beget offspring and to hand  on the inborn "alcoholic diathesis." Wo  should find that races which have been  longest exposed to the influence of alcohol are now the most temperate and  Dr. Reid has a chapter brimful of historical facts devoted to a proof of this.  On this aspect of the subject hangs the  proof or disproof in actual fact of Dr.  Reid's views on inebriety, and it is exactly here that he will be attacked by  the extremists who seek for the extinc-  taion of drink rather than only of  drunkards. But the scientist, who admits the non-transmissibility of acquirements will find difficulty in discovering a weak place in these facts and  arguments.  By his adherence to a cool, scientific  method the author has thrown a wonderful light on this important and intricate subject of the causature of national inebriety. His zeal is for a race  as well as for the individual, although  perhaps he places the race too much in  the first place; he does not, however,  condemn modern temperance efforts altogether, but merely asserts with a  whole volume of proof that temperance  efforts have failed hereto and will'continue to fail only because artificial selection has not been employed. A final  chapter exposes what, to the author's  mind, is the chief hindrance to the application of his remedy for inebriety  and to the development of real national  temperance, and is probably the most  outspoken utterance on national morality which has ever been printed.  Dr. Reid's main thesis regarding inebriety has been practically endorsed  by a special committee of the Society  IMPERIAL BANK  on?  o_A__n".a-:d-a.

Remarkable Wine Germs,  Wine "germs which make it possible  to duplicate exactly the famous wines"  of Bordeaux, Burgundy or the Rhine in  New York, Chicago or any other place,  are among the latest pests of science.  And considering that the wine germ  when carefully handled has actually  been doing the work required of him,  it is safe to say; that he has come to  stay.   ���  French Sauterne wines, the Rudesh-  eimer. white wines and the Lauciro,  made hunderds of miles from the home  of the genuine article and toned up  through the instrumentality of the respective wine germs, have deceived the  most expert^ connoisseurs.  Profesor Alwood, head of the My-  cological Laboratory of the Virginia  Agricultural experiment station, at  Blacksburg, Virginia, has been conducting some interesting experiments with  these germs, and has succeeded ih  thoroughly establishing their utility.  Tho germs are obtained from the  dregs of casks which have contained  the genuine wine, and those of each  particular. brand are . placed for safekeeping in a substance prepared from  Japanese isinglass and fruit juice. In  the jelly-like mass the germs soon establish a colony. When needed, sufficient germs may be-removed with the  tip of a sterilized platinum wire into a  tube of sterilized, fruit juice. After two  or three days the juice will be in full  fermentation with plentiful effervescence. This process imparts to the  wine the exact flavor, bouquet and characteristics of the wine from which the  germs originally came.  In France and Germany these germs  are beginning to be cultivated extensively." They can be packed and shipped  by-mail to any part of the continent, or  even to far distant countries, by putting  them into liquid solution in a tightly  sealed bottle. Professor Alwood hopes  to .induce the United States department  of agriculture to establish a laboratory  for the culture and ��� dissemination of  these imported wine germs of world famous brands,     .0  Can't Supply the Demand.  .

C, N. Monsaratt, the C.P.R. engineer  in "charge of the work on the bridge  over the Columbia river at Robson,  was in Nelson yesterday. He expects  to be able to pass the bridge within  the next couple of weeks.  The receipts of the port of Nelson  for the current ��� month will show a material gain over the corresponding period of the previous year. This is evidence thatithe merchants anticipate an  even better holiday trade this Christmas  than they had last year.  The appeal in the case of the Nelson  Sawmill vs Marks, in whicli tbe defend-  and was appealing from the decision of  stipendary magistrate Crease in a small  debts action over some lumber supplied  for the fixing pf St. Mark's church, has  been settled. �� compromise was reached  by the parties to the dispute and the  appeal has been dropped.  .Sheriff Tuck has returned from Sandon, .where he effected the seizure of  536,667 shares of the stock in the Urban  Mining Company, Limited, the property  of John Maxwell Donnelly, to satisfy  a'judgment in favor of A.

A report was current yesterday that  the case of Gamble vs Stocks will not  go to trial at the approaching sitting of  the supreme court. This was a suit  brought by A. G. Gamble against J.  Laing Stocks to recover a real estate  agent's commission alleged to be due  over the sale of the Victoria block.  Negotiations looking to a settlement of  the case are said to be in progress  with every prospect of an agreement being reached.  Phil Aspinwall of Spokane was In Nelson yesterday for a short time on his  way to Greenwood. He spent his time  in renewing old acquaintances, among  others John Ayton Gibson. Although  "Phil" is now a successful mining operator and "Jack" a successful politician, they both remember well the time  when they cut even more ice than they  do now. This was in the winter of 1889  at Donald, when they were both cutting ice for a livlihood.  stock. A majority of tllfe stock in the  Athabasca company is held in Canada  and if the proposed reconstruction is  effected the property will be managed  in Canada.

A Socialistic "meeting will be held in  the Miners' Union hall on Monday evening for the purpose of listening to an  address hy provincial organizer Cameron.

The meeting of the Nelson Labor  party, which was held in the Miners'  Union hall last evening for the purpose of perfecting organization was attended by upwards of thirty-five members. So far some eighty-five men have  signified their intention of joining  Uie organization by the purchase of  membership tickets, but of these less  than one-half attended iast evening's  meeting and the majority of those who  did attend were members of the Socialistic Club and they had no difficulty  in capturing the greater number of the  offices. There was just one test of  strength between the Socialistic members and those who were not connected  with that organization. This resulted in  the vote for president and resulted in  such a sweeping victory for the Socialistic wing of the party that those who  were not members of it declined to accept nomination for any of the other  offices.  The-meeting was called to order by  "W. R. K<?e, president pro tern., and  the first work was the enrolling of  those present. This done the election of  officers-was brought on. J. H. Matheson  was placed in nomination by the Socialistic " members and W. ��� R. Kee by the  other side. When the result of the.balloting wa3.announced it was seen that  Matheson "had received 21 votes and  Kee 11.  For the office of vice-president three  members'were-placed in nomination���  W. Lynch, W. R. Kee and J. D. Moyer.  The last two nominated withdrew and  the election"of Lynch was made unanimous. For the office of secretary there  were also three nominations���Max Mc-  Swain, J.' Knauf and D. S. Stanley, but  the first two withdrew from the race  and the election of Stanley was made  unanimous. John Roberts was made the  unanimous choice for the office of treasurer.  The question of the election of an ex-  cutive to act with the. officers was taken  up, when it was decided to have an executive of ten including the officers.  There were seven nominations for the  six places on the board, the nominees  being J. McPherson, .T. D. Moyer, W.  Hancock, Thomas Hunter, W. Ebbs, W.  Ii. Kee, J. P. Manhart and Frank Phillips. The ballot resulted in the election  of McPherson 29, Manhart 28, Ebbs 26,  Hunter 25, Phillips 22, and Kee 19. The  vote cast for Hancock and Moyer-was  18 and 16 respectively.

A resolution was passed authorizing  the executive to fix the date and place  of meeting and also "to submit a platform. '  R. G. Tatlow, M. P. t\, ot Vancouver,  provincial' liquidator for the Athabasca  mines, made a visit to the Athabasca  yesterday and formally took possession  of the property. Mr. Tatlow's appointment has not yet been confirmed but  a meeting of those interested, will shortly be held for this purpose, presumably  at Vancouver. No further work will be  done at the Athabasca until thc present  company is wound up and reconstruction effected. Failing reconstruction  the property will be sold to satisfy the  claims against it. The move to have  the company wound up by the courts  was taken by the Canadian shareholders  for the purpose of avoiding the heavy  assessment schemes on foot in London.  I Had this scheme been carried out it is  J said that it -would have broken a aunt'  jfcEr of tho large Gmnfiian Judders ot  ^fnembers~fof���the honor confcrrri"d~on  him. While admitting that he did not  feel tqual to the responsibilities thrust  upon him he promised to do his utmost  to deserve the confidence reposed in  him. His view of the situation as expressed by the meeting was that labor  had come to the conclusion that independent action was necessary in political  matters in order that it should receive the consideration it was entitled  to. The first meeting of the new party  was in every respect a representative  one, and if it indicated anything it  was that the labor party would meet  with considerable success in the work  which it had taken in hand. One of the  first matters to receive attention would  be the drafting of a platform and it  would be for the meeting to decide  whether this should be undertaken at  once or left to the members of the executive. His own view as to a platform  was one upon which all who were in  sympathy with labor could stand and  with the assistance of the members of  the executive he did not think'there  ������ uld be any difficulty in fran .ng <ne  which could be calculated to have this  result. He was comparatively new nt  the business and he thought it would'  be well if he and the other members  of the committee had the advantage of  listening to the opinions of older hands  upon the matter. Vice-president Lynch,  secretary Stanley and treasurer Roberts in turn expressed their thanks for  tihe confidence reposed in them and  promised to do all in ther power to  show that it had been well placed.  A vote of thanks was then tendered  to" the provisional officers, which was  replied to by W. R. Kee, provisional  president. He said he did not think the  retiring officers were deserving of very  much in the way of thanks, as they had  had very little to do. Their work consisted chiefly" in the issuing of membership tickets. These had not been pushed,  for the reason that those who were Interested, were expected to indicate their  interest'without pressure, but upwards  of 85 had purchased them, which was  a very encouraging sign and the attendance ~at the meeting tonight itself  was a very good sign. With respect to  the oflicers elect he hoped they would  get along in the discharge of their  duties as easily as the provisional offl-  cers had etone^ and if as election came  AT THE HOTELS.
