Array i/j  '^^YYiyYiy^:  ESTABLISHED  1892  SATURDAY  MORNING,  NOVEMBER 23,   1901  DAILY EDITION  ASEYEMP&AIE  DECIDED THE   PURCHASE  OF THE POORMAN.  A PIONEER OF NELSON DISTRICT  TALKS INTERESTINGLY OF  EARLT MINING DEALS.  John C. Davenport of Spokane, who  ,was one of the first men to put money  into,, the development of the mining  resources of the Nelson district, is at  present spending a couple of days in  thisocity awaiting the arrival of his  son, A. L. Davenport, who has in hand  the'development of the Bayonne group  of claims at the head of Summit creek.  Mr. Davenport has been engaged in  mining for many years and ho is still  at it. He at different times was interested in tjlie Ainsworthj the Nelsou  and the "Slocan districts, but he is best  known to the people of Nelson as the  first purchaser of tlie Poorman mine.  He made-his flrst trip into the country as the result of a stake which he'  gave to a "prospector who was working  ;  in the Ainsworth camp. This was in the  summer of 18S8, the man whom he had  assisted  being anxious that he should  get in "on tho ground floor of a mining  boom  which   threatened  Ainsworth  at  that time. Mr. Davenport was not very  favorably impressed with the showing  on the property of the man whom he  had   assisted,   and- the' latter   anxious  that he should invest in the camp took  him- over to the Little Donald property.  .   This at the  time was  supposed  to  be  owned by Tom Munn, who was particularly jealous  of anything that  might  be  said   of   it  in   a  general  way.   Mr.-  Davenport    was    favorably    impressed  '   with the Little Donald, but before starting,out to see the owner he was warned  that any disparagement of the property-:  ori his part would-'shut-out any chance  of a deal. He met*-Munn-and told him  that he had been up',to-look at his property. Munn asked him what ho thought"  , of itr and Mr.' Davenport in reply said  ho considered it one of the finest properties he had seen. This warmed Munn  to the purchaser, and ne did not hesitate to tell him jthat he considered him  a gentleman.: It came out in the bourse  of the conversation that Munn owned  but one-half of the property, and that  the remaining half was owned by John  T.   Stevens,   the   Spokane   railway, engineer. "A  deal was soon arranged for  the sale of the Munn interest for $10,-  ..:* 000 cash. The owner of the claim agreeing to take Mr. Davenport's check for  the amount of the purchase price,  he  turned over his interest in the property  at once. It was while engaged in working the Little Donald property that Mr.  Davenport heard of the Poorman mine  ana he made a trip to look over it. The  ���^owners-iwere-Ike=:Nailef=-with=whoin=Mr.=  Davenport was acquainted/and a man  named MacDougall. Mr. Davenport was  satisfied and getting an idea of what  the owners expected for it he started  back  for   Portland,   telling  them  that  they would probably hear from him. At  Portland, a friend who was a banker  agreed to go in with him and Mr. Davenport started back to close up the deal.  On   the   train   up   from   Portland   Mr.  Davenport noticed Jim Wardner. They  were well acquainted, hut neither said  anything to the other as to his destination. At Kootenay station Mr. Davenport was rather surprised to see Wardner get off with him. His interest in his  companion grew when he found him in  .   the   same  stage   bound   for   Bonner's  Ferry,   and   increased   when   they   became fellow passengers down the Koot-  enav.  It occurred to Mr. Davenport that Mr.  Wardner might be after the same piece  of property, and his suspicion was confirmed when the boat arrived at Nelson  arid they were met by both Naile and  MacDougall. Even then nothing was  said, and the owners left Davenport and  Wardner at Ward's hotel to get a meal  and follow them up to the mine with  horses. The owners showed both men  through, the property at the same time  and Davenport listened for any remarks  which Wardner might make upon it.  He heard Wardner praising the showings and at once made up his mind that  . he had a rival bidder. All four talked,  but no one said anything about purchasing. Finally Wardner proposed to  Davenport that they return to town,  and they started back together. On the  way to town Davenport asked Wardner  what he thought of the property. Jim  replied that he did not think much of  it. Davenport satisfied himself tbat this  was Wardner's real opinion, and then  told him that he had made the trip in  to buy the property, and as Wardner  did not want it he would go back and  complete the deal. Wardner then  changed front and said he was after  the property himself. This changed the  entire aspect for Davenport, as he realized that if Wardner got stuck on the  property and wanted it there was not  much ehanco of his getting it at anything like the first price quoted.  The two men continued the journey  to Nelson and kept turning the ���purchase of the property over in their  tnjnds all the time. Seeing there was  little prospect of getting the property  without Wardner being in on it, Davenport  suggested  that  they  should join  forces and buy the thing together. This;  however,  did  not appeal to Wardner.  He   did   ncft   thir\k   the   property,  big  enough for the two of them. The two  backed and filled over the deal and the  next day when the owners arrived in  town to complete the deal it was settled  that  the   two   should   go   in  together.  Davenport outlined to Wardner the offers  which he proposed  to make, and  they were assented to.  The four men  got together in front of Ward's hotel,  .Davenport doing the talking.. He made  his first proposition and it was refused.  He made the second and third with like  result. Then there was a deadlock and  Wardner spoke up with a roundabout  proposition  which   took  some  time  to  take in and Naile and MacDougall went  off to  one side to consider it. Before  they came back Davenport told Wardner that he could count him out on any  such deal, and Wardner said it would  not  do   either.   Naile  and  MacDougall  then returned to get. some explanation  from Wardner on his offer and the latter withdrew it. Then there was another  deadlock and  Davenport and Wardner  returned to the hotel to talk the matter  over. Davenport had made^ip his mind  by this time that he could not do much  with Wardner in'the deal and as they  entered Ward's hotel he proposed they  should  play a game of seven-up,  and  that the man who lost should get on the  steamer and leave the field to the other.  Wardner  assented  and  the  game was  started. Davenport dealt the cards and  Wardner stood.  He made four on the  first deal. Wardner then dealt. Davenport  begged,   and   Wardner  gave.   On  the second deal Wardner made another  three  and  Davenport was   out  of the  negotiations ' and . left   on   the,  little  steamer a few minutes after for Ainsworth. '  Wardner failed to come to terms with  the owners of the property, and in a  few ���" days - he .told Davenport he could  go ahead and made any deal he wanted  on the property. Davenport waited until Wardner was out of the country  and then returned to Nelson and in a  short time he had an agreement with  the owners of the Poorman to purchase  on a basis of $35,000, with the big payments spread over a considerable  period., The parties came down from  the mine to Nelson to have the papers  drawn up by "judge" Sproat. As they  reached the city, the little steamer was  just making the landing.' On it was a  letter to Naile .from "\Vardner offering  to ��� take tho property for ' $40,000 cash,  Davenport' saw the letter handed to  Naile and at once surmised tliat it was  from Wardrier. Naile and- MacDougall  went into Fred Hume's store to consider it, aud Davenport remembered  that he had not made any payment to  bind the bargain which he had made.  He followed them into the store and  laid two $100 bills on top of Wardner^s  letter, which was between them, saying that it was their first payment.  Naile was willing to stand by the deal  hut MacDougall was not. He did not ir.ee  the force of standing by a deal for $35,-  000 on time when one could be made for  $40,000 cash. Some alterations -were  made, however, with respect to the time  for the deferred payments and: the deal  over wnich there was so much fuss was  concluded.  As was the case with almost every  mining deal in which Mr. Davenport  was in the Poorman venture turned out  all' right.  Under his management and  present licenses run out," said the reporter.  "That depends-on the government's  action."  "Will  the   liquor  dealers  take  any  steps?"  "I cannot tell."  J. A. M. Aikens, who-framed the  liquor act, said: "The decision rendered  will, I have no doubt, not only be important with respect to transactions ln  liquor, in defining the different jurisdictions of the Dominion and provincial legislatures, but will no doubt be  important in fixing the limits of "these  jurisdictions in respect to other matters  too. I was not at all surprised at opinions differing as to the validity of the  act,' in view of the fact that previous  decisions of the privy council were-not  clear as to the right of the province  to [legislate in respecit to wholesale  transactions in liquor. It was difficult  to draw an act close up to the limit of  provincial jurisdiction and, after drawn,  difficult to say that it was clearly witlv-  in the power of the province."  Wff. IT'S WATEB  NEW TROUBLE CONFRONTS  NORTHPORT SMELTER.  Liverpool Bank Victimized.  LIVERPOOL, November 22.���Great  excitement was * caused here today by  the announcement that the Bank of  Liverpool had been '*; victimized by a  trusted bookkeeper to the extent; of  hundreds of thousands of dollars. What  the losses amount to is not yet known,  but an official statement issued by the  bank: says that through the dishonesty  and betting transactions, of a bookkeeper they may; lose ��170,000 ($850,-  ,000). The Bank of' Liverpool's shares  fell ��1 on the stock exchange today.  The defaulter has not yet been arrested.  ITS SOURCE  OF SUPPLY LIKELY  TO BE CONFISCATED BY  THE OWNER.  WILL PRESENT ULTIMATUM  "tlia~t""ori!is son the property was worked"  at a good profit and a good margin was  realized on its sale. ��� L  ��100000 or Nothing.       .  c  SOFIA,- November 22��� Mr. Dickinson,, the diplomatic agent here of the  United States, started-today "for Constantinople, there to confer with. Spencer Eddy, the ..secretary of the United  States legation, as to the hest means of  hastening a solution in the deadlock  which has arisen in- the negotiations  over the release of Miss Stone. Mr.  Dickinson will probably return here/  bringing with him cash with which to  pay Miss Stone's ransom, as her kidnapers insist this "payment must be  made in Turkish gold. Mr. Dickinson  is considering the advisability of presenting au ultimatum to' the brigands,  in which he will fix ten days as the  period in which, ��100,000 must be accepted by the brigands as Miss Stone's  ransom. If the proposal is not accepted  by the captors, all dealings will cease.  If these conditions have not already  been .dictated by Mr. Dickinson the ul-  itmatum promising them will almost  certainly be delivered as soon as -the  American diplomatic agent.returns from  Constantinople. -According to the latest  information received here both Miss  Stone and Mme. Tsilka continue in  good health. They are concealed, in a  large village near Dubnitza, ' whithor  they were taken blindfolded and where  only rude comforts are obtainable.  WASHINGTON, November 22��� The  reason for consul-general Dickinson's  departure from Sofia for Constantinople  is not known at; the state department.  That he has intended to leave'. Sofia  was known and it is assumed that he  _lms^found_i_hat���hte_ii*^  PROHIBITION FOR MANITOBA  Province Has a Right to Enforce It.  WINNIPEG. November 22.���Members  of the Manitoba government refuseto  talk as to the action of the government  following the finding of the, imperial  privy council, declaring that the province has the power to enforce prohibition. It is well known that members  of the cabinet are divided in opinion on  the prohibition question. F. H. Phippe.i,  who was counsel for the local liquor  dealers before the imperial privy council, was interviewed in regard to the  decision. He said: "I have just received  a cable which corroborates your information that the act is upheld. It is as  follows: 'The Manitoba liquor judgment  today decides the act valid. The answer to question No. 1 falls under No.  16; other questions are unanswered as  serving rvo" useful purpose.' Question  No. 1 submitted by the province to the  court was: Had the legislative assembly  of Manitoba jurisdiction to enact the  liquor act, and if not, in what particular respect has it exceeded its power?  The question No. 16 referred to in the  cablegram is sub-section 16 of section  92 of the B. N. -A. Act, which authorizes the province to legislate in- re-:  spect to all matters of a merely local  or private nature in the province. The  effect' of the judgment would appear to  be that the judicial committee is of  opinion that prohibition legislation as  dealt with by the liquor act is a local  matter and therefore within the competence of the. legislators. The court of  queen's bench of Manitoba took a different view; it thought the act affected matters beyond the province,  and was therefore bad as interfering  with trade and commerce.  "It is possible," said Mr. Phippen in  conclusion, "that on obtaining a copy  of the judement the decision may appear in a different light, but the above  is the explanation as it would seem to  me from the cablegram."  "Then nrohibition is practically an  accomplished fact, at least, when the  in Bulgaria, where he is "hampered in"  his attempts at communicating with  Miss Stone by the Bulgarian officials,  is harmful in her case. The movement  does not mean that the state department has decided to abandon its efforts towards securing Miss Stone's release and the fact is those efforts will  be continued in another and more  promising direction.  Cost Them a Million. ���  NEW YORK, November 22.���According to the World, heirs of the late Cornelius Vanderbilt must pay $361,803.43  into the coffers of the United States.  This is the total of the inheritance tax  fixed by the federal government against  the estate. The heirs have already been  compelled to pay a state tax of $520,-  998. The legal expenses of fighting the  tax, which has been .carried into the  highest courts of the state and nation,  will bring the grand total up to one-  million dollars..    , .  Indictments Against Bauk Officials.  NEW YORK, November 22.���The  King's county grand jury returned an  indictment today * against George Zol-  linhoffer, the aged teller of the Williamsburg Savings Bank, who confessed  that he and a fellow employee robbed  the institution of $60,000. The indictment charged four counts of grand larceny. It was expected that Zollinhoffer  would plead guilty, but instead he was  represented by counsel and asked until next Wednesday to plead.  NORTHPORT, November 22.���[Special to The Tribune.]���The Northport  Smelting & Refining Company is in a  fresh difficulty." Its water supply is  threatened by-Robert Morrill, owner of  the Northport Electric Company, who  owns Deep creek fall s, about a quarter  of a mile above the head of the smelter  company's flume. Mr. Morrill is fresh  from a victory over the Anaconda  smelter of Anaconda, Montana, from  whom he collected $50,000 in a suit over  real estate adjoining their plant, and it  is likely he will make things extremely  interesting for; the Northport smelter  company.. The smelter gets its water  supply and that for the city's system,  which it owns, from Deep creek,  through a flume about a mile and a half  long. Mr. Morrill is building a sawmill  at Deep creek falls and 10 o'clock Monday morning last he.fuuua It necessary  to close the gates of his dam. As a con-  sequence the creek went dry and the-  smelter water gauges began to fall. The  master mechanic' and a number, of men,  went out to the falls and requested  Morrill's men to open the gates of the  dam. This they refused to do. The  smeltermen threatened to demolish the  ���dam, but Morrill's' men' refused to be'  bluffed 'and the smelter was compelled  to close down for some time, as the  "water was not turned on again until 1  o'clock Monday afternoon. In the meantime two of the furnaces froze up and  some other damage was done to the  plant.  Mr. Morrill's wator right was located  prior to that, owned- by the smelter"  company and it seems' likely that he will  be able to do pretty much as he likesj  with -water matters, until the smelter,  company accede to what ever demand3  he may make," as the Deep creek water  supply is practically the only one available for the smelter's use unless they  pump their; water from the Columbia  at an enormous expense. The end is  not yet.  HOT   POLITICAL   MEETING  orders. The stock could not be bought  on the Toronto market and only a few  shares were obtainable in Montreal. No  particular reason is assigned for the  sudden rise in the shares.  Mayor Lalonde and Z. D. Axa, a visiting French journalist, were shown all  over the Le Roi yesterday morning.  The investigation into the-;" Le Roi  management is about -completed.

A steamer alleged to have on board  five million cartridges and 15,000 Mauser  rifles, destined for the use of Venezuelan revolutionists Is expected to arrive  in the West Indies about the middle of  December. The representatives of the  revolutionary element now here say the  revolt will start after cthese arms and  ammunition are available and that the  movement will receive the active or passive co-operation of large numbers of  Venezuelans, who they say are becoming tired of the existing state of affairs  in Venezuela, which is characterized by  general Castro's political opponents as  the "state of anarchy and persecution  created by the Castro" government."

Gilmour  roused McPhillips by; stating that it  was all very well for him to talk against  Dunsmuir now, but it was a,very late  day, adding that last winter these same  men who were talking now were  then attending government caucuses  and at the same time their names were  before the opposition to be voted upon  as members of the opposition. McPhillips sprung up and denied the statement. Gilmour reiterated it and McPhillips called cut, "It is a lie." The  crowd jelled for the Victoria member  to take his seat and Gilmour added an  allusion that tho cap had evidently  fitted McPhillips. The latter tried again  to speak but was prevented and on the  fifth or sixth interruption Gilmour said  he would not stand it much longer. A  moment later the Victoria member was  again on his feet and stood in front of  Gilmour. The latter put out his hand  and pushed him back, telling him to sit  down, when the chairman rushed between them. Similar episodes continued  whilo Gilmour spoke.  Vancouver Local News  VANCOUVER.

The Spectator will say: "If  .America will define the Monroe doctrine,  ��� why should we not pledge ourselves not  to .infringe upon'it. When we had acknowledged this doctrine America  might propose it to xhe .rest of the  powers for enforcement.. If she did, the  powers could hardly- refuse. If they  adhered, their adhesion would be of  great use, not to America, but to the  cause of peace, for it .would eliminate a  great "many .notable causes of war. . If  the Monroe doctrine became part of the  public law of the civilized world the  risk of a war breaking out with regard  to European interference in Brazil or  Spanish America, now always a possibility, would then pass away. Possibly  no other power but Great Britain would  at first be willing to recognize the Monroe doctrine as binding. Even so, it  would be worth our while to pledge  ourselves to respect it; for we never  meant to attack that doctrine and sooner or later our example would probably  be followed by other powers."

UTICA, Noveml'or 22.���An aged man  ran out from the sidewalk in this city  this afternoon to stop a runaway team  of cab horses. He caught the reins and  was thrown against the curb and his  skull crushed. He died ar. hour later  in the city hospital. His identity is  unknown.  NEW YORK, November 22.���Consul-  general A. D. Brigard of Colombia, received a cablegram today from general  Carlos Alban, governor of the department of Panama. The cable stated that  general Alban was to attack the insurgents under general Domingo Diaz today at Chorrera and Alban promised  if successful in routing them to proceed to Colon and retake the city. The  consul-general regards the outcome of  today's fighting as highly important If '  general Diaz should conquer-the entire  isthmus will be in the hands - of the"  liberal party. '   .  COLON,   November   22.���The   latest  news obtainable here is that the liberal  general  Lugo  has   arrived   at  Empire  station, about twelve miles from Pana-"  ma, with a force said to numbfTj 1000 ,-  men. The liberals are gaining and arm- -  ing   many   recruits   along   the entire -  length of the railroad and now control  the line up to within a point of two  miles from Panama. An attack on that  city is expected momentarily and much  uneasiness is felt.  The liberal leader Diaz is expected .to  arrive shortly at Colon. It is rumored  here that .Bonaventura, a Colombian"  port on the Pacific coast ' about -_ '4.00.-  miles south of Panama, has been taken  by the liberals. A confirmation of this  report is lacking.  Marines from - the gunboat Machias  still guard the station and.property of  the railroad herev The -battleship Iowa  will land forces at Panama when the  necessity arrives. ~  The liberals here have already given  notice  that  the ' ad  valorem   duty  on  goods disembarked at .Colon will hence-,  forth be ten per cent, not twenty vas'  formerly.'"AU tlie siores "in'Colon-ard" *"  open today and business resumed. -' ' T  The Colombian gunboat General Pin- '  zen is believed to be along the coast  somewhere   near  Colon,   as  when- she ,  left here she was short of coal. Transit  across the isthmus is still free, and un- .,  interrupted. ���$>  It  is  reported  that  the  government. ,  has addressed a communication to';the  United States consul setting forth that  it cannot guarantee protection for tha  isthmian   transit.   Two   sailing   boats,  having   75   men   on   board,   which  left  Panama  with  general  Alban  returned  to^that place at 6 p. m. yesterday.'Gen- ,���*  eral Alban and 50 soldiers subsequently,"  arrived  there on  the  gunboat Boyoca ,  at 7 p. m. The liberals here assert'that;  general  Lorenzo  attacked  general AI-.  ban's  force   after   it   had ."���: landed   at"  Chame, near Chorrera, and defeated it; '  only general Alban and a few of hia  troops escaping. It is also asserted by  .  the liberals that the other division of  general   Alban's   army  was   routed   by;,  general   Lugo,   when   400   of   Alban's  troops   joined   the   liberal   ranks.   The  liberals at Colon are jubilant and say  that they expect general Lugo to arrive  at Colon momentarily. Further details  of later decisive fighting are expected  at Panama at any moment.  Senor Espriclla, counsel for the Panama railroad, who was appointed provisional prefect by the liberals yesterday, has declined the office, and Dr.  Cambrillo has been appointed prefect. '  in his place. Senor Salas has accepted  thc appointment as mayor, which was  offered to Dr. Valvoid. The United  States gunboat Marietta, ordered here  from Key West, has not yet arrived.  m  zm\  mi  _$��  .   *>>-  �����S58S1  ��5|P"  mm  m  mm  HI  ilf  m  Stopped His Experiments.  NEW YORK, November 22.���Tuberculosis experiments by Dr. George D.  Barney of Brooklyn, whicli aroused considerable indignation when he ' announced recently that he had inoculated  a young woman with the disease, were  brought to a sudden close by Dr. A.  Black, head of tho board of health in  that borough, who seized the cow on  whicli he had founded his work. Dr.  Barney combats the theory of Dr. Koch,  the eminent German medical authority,  that consumption could not be. communicated from a lower animal to' a'  human being, and with that end in  view he inoculated the cow with the  disease. The cow was very sick and he  was proposing soon to hold an autopsy  on her when the agent of Dr. Black  pounced upon the creature and carried!  her way to the public pound, where  it is said she will be destroyed.  An Increase of Paupers  NEW YORK, November 22.���According to the London correspondent of tha  Times the industrial problems of tha  British metropolis are complicated by;  the increase of pauperism, the number  of paupers in London, according to tha  report just issued, being 115 'more than  recorded in any report issued in the last'  eight years. The increase last year was  nearly 4500. The paupers thus emimer-  ated are only those who have been  relieved in the workhouse or by otheQ  means. _ 1 m

The Victoria "Times of Tiies'day contains what it designate- as E. V. Bod-
well's "comprehensive and vigorous
policy." "Wh'en'analayzcd, thc "comprehensive aiid vigorous policy" ot Mr.
Bodwell consists of subsidizing .projected trunk railways with both money
and land; alleviating alledged grievances of mine owners; and, incidentally,
making an appeal to the British foreign" office to'relieve the province from
Chinese and Japanese 'immigration.       "
Mr. Bodwell- has been so long a legal
adviser ;6f railways' seeking charters and
subsidies"that we fear .he   views   the
railway, question from the standpoint of
the' railwaycompanies; we 'fear that ■'he'
is not able 'to view" the* question" froim
the standpoint, that if the people built
the   railways   with...their -moneys   and
lands that they should own them, or at
least own the proportion that was built
with  their money-and  lands.    British
Columbia  hts  already  tried  Mr. : Bod-
well's plan, and what have the people
got for their, large,  gifts in   land   and
money?    They have merely got transportation facilities that they would have
got without parting with  a  dollar of
money of an acre of land.   The province
has hundreds of millions   of   acres   of
land, much   of' it   known   to   contain
wealth in minerals and timber; wealth
that can be gained once the country has
transportation   facilities.    If  Mr.   Bodwell were a statesman, now that he has
entered politics, he would have a.pblicy
whereby some of these 'millions of acres
could be traded "bif for trunk railways,
whicli when built would be owned ' by
the people of the province.   Instead, Mr.
JkMhreU, would gire away the jniliioins
Mr. Eodwell may, if he is successful
jn carrying Victoria in the bye-election,
be recognized as tho'leader bf tfco'v. V.

Years ago many manufactories in  which nowadays thousands of people are  employed were carried on by one or  two people, who alone possessed, the  trade secret, which enabled them to  monopolize the whole market .for then-  particular industry. Tho mannar in  which some of these secrets leaked out,  in spite of every precaution, is rather  interesting.  A striking instance of this description is afforded in the history of the  world-renowned Dresden porcelain. A  German alchemist named Bottger, in  the service of Augustus II of Saxony,  was the"first to discover the process of  making a white hard porcelain in 1709.  The king immediately saw the value of  the discovery, and caused extraordinary  precautions to be taken in order-to prevent the process of manufacture being  revealed in any way. No one was allowed to enter the manufactory, which  was established at Meissen, near Dresden, except the workmen, upon whom  oaths of secrecy wore imposed. They  were also kept under strictest supervision, being watched day and night by  the king's emissaries.  In spite of all these precautions, how-,  ever, the secret was betrayed by a workman named Stofzel, who fled lo Vienna,  where he was instrumental in founding  - the Imperial porcelain factory, which  is in existence there at the present time.  Since then many other factories have  been established, at some of the principal  towns  on  tho  continent,   most  of  * which are under national protection.  Few people are probably aware that  the manufacture of nitric acid was at  one time a secret known to but one  chemist, whose shop was situated near  Fleet street, London. Thc process was  much that he did not need the assistance of any workmen, and consequently  it seemed as though he would be able  to enjoy the monopoly of manufacture  all his life, without any fear of the secret leaking out. The chemist was always  most careiul to keep the doors of his  laboratory locked and me windows barred. But he forgot the chimney, and  this pro\ed his undoing. One day, after  he had left his laboratory, a sciontifi-  cally inclined chimney-sweep slipped  down tbe chimney, obtained all the information he required, and thus deprived the chemist of his secret.  There is very little that is secret nowadays connected with the manufacture  of cast-steel.    Thc credit of its discov-  ��� ery, however, belonged to a man named  Huntsman, who carried on the business  of a watchmaker at Attercliffe, near  Sheffield, in 17'iO. Being much dissatisfied with the iron watch-springs which  were made in his day, he set about trying to improve the metal, and amongst  other experiments melted a piece of  iron and cast, into an ingot.  This, of course, was the secret of cast-  steel, and  Huntsman was not slow in  THE CANADIAN  BANK OF COMMERCE  WITH WHICH IS .iMAMJAMATBD  THE  BANK OF  BRITISH COLUMBIA.  HEAD OFFICE: TORONTO.

In 1770 he established a large manufactory at Attercliffe, employing those workmen whose  honesty and integrity he could rely  upon. By some means or other, however, a stranger found his way into the  works and witnessed the whole process, and in this manner the secret of  the manufacture of cast-steel was revealed to the world.  It was hot until 1670 that tin-plate  was first made in England. Many attempts were made before then to discover tlie correct method of tinning  plate-iron, but without success. At last  an English workman went over to Bohemia, and after some trouble entered a  tin-plate manufactory there. Ho stayed  long enough to learn the whole secret  of the process, after which* ho came  "back to his country and imparted his  knowledge to his. fellow-countrymen.  ODD HOTELP.  Possibly a' stranger freak was never  dreamed of by an architect than tlie  hotel built iu the shape of an elephant  at Coney Island, near New York. At a  distance the illusion was perfect. The  building which aecbmodated*2000 people,  looked exactly.like a colossal statue of  an elephant, even to the trunk and tail.  This curiosity in buildings was burnt  down a few years ago, but there is another elephant hotel in existence at  Atlantic City, Philadelphia's watering-  place. It is not. quite so large as the  Coney Island building was, but it is  quite as popular.   .  Following on the. same idea, the centennial committee of Ohio is constructing a gigantic building n the form of a  fish, which is to serve as exhibition, restaurant, "ania hotel in one.' It will lie  on a slab built in a lako a little way  from tbe shore.  The great attraction of Baldwin,  Georgia, is.a gigantic barrel of capacity  of 40,000 gallons, which has been  mounted on a platform and fitted with  a neat porch. It is to be used as an  inn, though its size���22 ft. by 16.ft���  does not admit of very extensive accommodation,  Floating hotels are becoming popular  in places where building sites on land  are scarce or expensive. Messrs. Viekers, Son, and Maxim recently purchased  tbe famous old Atlantic liner, the  Alaska, and fitted her up as an hotel for  some four hundred of their *Brarlanen  SAVINGS BANK DEPARTMENT:  Interest allowed on doposits.. Present rate  threo por cent.  GRANGE V. HOLT,  Manager Nelson Branch.  at Barrow. She lies iu the docks, and  the cabins which once were occupied by  princes and millionaires are now inhabited by sturdy and clever British  workmen.  Another of these ship hostelries is  the pet project of the great coffee'mil-  lionare, Mr. John Arbuckle. He bought  a big sea-going ship, the Jacob A.  Stamler, and is fitting her up as a most  lururious hotel, with seventy-five rooms.  But, unlike the Alaska, the Stamler is  not to be dismantled as a ship. She will  lie in dock only during the day. Every'  evening in summer she 'will steam out  to sea, so that her' guests may. enjoy, the,  benefit of a night spent in the cool,' fresn  sea air.  Thc average charge for a bunk aboard  her is only Rs a night. It may be mentioned that she will be conducted on  principles pf the most strict teetotalism,  but her cooking,will be by'a'first-class  chef; she will have a splendid electric  lighting plant, and a first-rate orchestra  will be aboard.  Speekiug of teetotal hotels," there is  one in England which'is in its way a  curiosity. It is to be found near Bury  St. Edmunds. Every year for ten years  past its license has been duly renewed  by the authorities, yet during all 'that  time not a drop of liquor has ever been  sold in it.  There is probably only one hotel in  the world, which .has a princo as innkeeper. There is a little health resort  near Munich which was once a Benedictine hospital. It belongs to the duke  Theodore of Bavaria. When he came  into possession of it he found ha could'  not afford to keep the hospital \open free.  So he opened it as an- hotel, with his  brother, pi ince Ludwig, in charge. For  the three summer months it is filled with  paying guests But all these leave at  the end of August, and the kindly duke  devotes the profits to keeping open  house during ��� the rest of the year -for  poor teachers, clergymen, and others,  whom he invites as his guests.  A New York innkeeper happened to  take refuge one day from a shower in  a smithy, and saw the blacksmith toast-^  ing some meat over the forge fire,   The  idea occurred to him that there was a,  chance for a novelty in hotels.   He has'  since fitted up a chop-house resembling  in every particular a smithy.   Grills are  worked over forge fires blown by automatic bellows.   Liquors are drawn from  imitation anvils, and the plates resemble  pieces  cut from a blacksmith's  apron.  Tho place is said to be simply coining  money.  Mushrooms and Toadstools  How to distinguish mushrooms from  toadstools is a secret tnat, if it could  be succinctly written out once for all,  would be almost priceless.  Unfortunately, no invariable rule has  been discovered." The one sure test of  the edibility of a fungus is to eat it.  It is, however, a fact generally believed by fungologists that the edible  opecies, tar from being the exception,  tis���llormerly���regarded���are���the���rule;-  t,nat a great majority of our wild fungi  j.ie at least harmless, if not positively  wholesome and nutritious. The popular  tests, like most superstitions, are worse  ihan useless for they are often treacherous and deceptive. "If the skin peels  oil easily it is a mushroom; if it will  not peel, a toadstool"���therefore deadly. Is that so? Let ussee. A majority of  die most delicious and healthful species  will not peel at all under any amouat  of coaxing. The deadly amanita peels  with cheerful .accommodation,'..and',also  offers an inviting odor and pleasant  tasto when raw, thereby controverting  another popular belief that taste and  smell may be a safe guide. As to "boiling with a silver spoon," this* superstition is more often responsible than any  other for the coroner's verdict, "Died  from eating toadstools in mistake for  mushrooms."  The common mushroom is a very safe  and desirable specimen to eat when  identified, but there are one or two  others which resemble him rather closely and which are by no means so friendly to the amateur. The campestris always grow thickly over cultivated  meadow land and grassy fields, .espec-'  iaily those where animals have been,  at pasture. They are never found in  woods, banks, roadsides or tree trunks.  They usually grow singly, but occasionally are found in clusters. A very safe  specie for the amateur to experiment  with is the corprinus micaceus, whicli  grows everywhere all summer long. It  is among the commonest of the edible  species'. It generally thrives on decaying wood. An old stump is one of its  favorite homes. Around the stump will  spring up dozens of this little plant,  growing in clusters like half-opened  Japanese parasols tied together at the  handles.  Along the sidewalks of city streets,  or in back yards where a tree has been  cut down, they spring up in quantities.  Even in pasture fields some of the corprinus family will be found. Nor is this  mushroom easily mistaken for an enemy. It has a white, fragile hollow stem  two or three inches long. The cap is a  pale whitish buff, or tawny color, with  darker color on top. It is bell-shaped  when young, opening wider when old.  The shining particles on top that glisten in the sun give it the name of  "micaceus," or "glistening mushroom."

To be sure,  that" one has the right thing it would  be well to look at a number of them  growing around the same stump. If  the older ones are expanding their urn-,  brellas and have black ribs which leave  a smutty mark on the fingers and the  smaller ones are but half opened with  pinkish, purplish gills, it is the genuine, glistening corprinus and you may  load, up ycur basket and go home and-  enjoy your-meal.  How Bob Evan's Met the -Prince.  At a reception given' on board one of  the German battle-ships on the Sunday  after our arrival at Kiel I#had an interesting experience. When I went over  the side I found a large company, most  of them dancing. 'As I was not a dancing man I stood on one side to be out  of the way and entered into conversation with a young, clean-cut-looking  Berman captain who spoke English'perfectly. It was soon evident to me that,  he was brilliant in his profession, and  we engaged in a rather sharp professional talk.% I did not agree with the  "captain, whose name I had not caught,  and did not hesitate to speak my mind���  nor did hex. After a time he said he  would be glad to present me to his wife,  and he did, and I found her a very  charming and - attractive woman. Of  course I had not caught her name either,  and after talking with her half an houri  I noticed a good many people seemed to'  be'waiting to speak to her, so I took  myself off to the smoking apartment'  to enjoy a cigar.. When. I entered.admiral Knorr greeted' me and said:  "Evans, the prince says you are a good  fellow, and he wants the emperor to  know you." I replied, "My dear admiral,!  I haven't seen the prince and don't know  him." "Well," he said, "you ought to  .know him, you ba\e been talking shop  with him for half an hour,-and"! don't  know what, you have been saying to  the princess during your -conversation  with her." I had been talking with two  of the most delightful people I ever met,  prince Henry and thc princess Irene,  without in the least knowing who they  were, and I certainly told them both  exactly what I thought about the different things we discussed.���B..

As Wn-  nipeg is ono of the most. important  branches of the bank Mr. Bell's transfer  is in the way of a'promotion and the  news of which will be received with a  great deal of satisfaction by the many  friends he has made since his coming,  to this city.  It. B. Wood of Ymir, who was connected with the Ymir mine during the  early stages of its development, is in  Nelson. Mr. Wood has traveled over almost every mining section of British  Columbia and has made up his mind  that there are none of them which compare better than the Ymir district for  the investment of capital. This district  has received much more attec.tion during the past season and the indications  are that several of the properties at  present idle 'or indifferently worked  will be giving employment to a considerable number of men next season.  With a View to Purchase.  N. Lehnen of St." Paul arrived in Nelson yesterday from the. Slocan City mining   division/  where   he   was   looking  over the Tamarack1 mining property on  Springer creek, about a mile above the  Ottawa group. This property is at present under bond to a Spokane company  and Mr. Lehnen made nis inspection of  it with a .view of acquiring an interest  with  the holders of the bond  which,  considering  the  showing  on  the  property,- is* a ,very advantageous one for  them. Three tunnels i have been driven  in on the Tamarack- ledge, the lowest  of which .gives a depth of something  like 300 feet. These show the ledge :.o  be "from two to  three feet wide with  from 12 to 16 inches of high grade silver ore, a class  of ore at present in  very great demand by the local smelters.- Mr.  Lehrien  has  not yet  decided  whether be will  become interested in  the property, but as a result of his inspection ' he';says he will at least recommend 'to: the holders of the bond that  they'complete1'-their purchase of it by  the first' of-"the next month .and save  the discount'which' the owners are willing to allow in consideration of more  prompt paym'ent," :-and that a tramway  or' wagon road be 'built. Another thing  which he will recommend, and which he  will be prepared to carry out if he becomes   interested   in   the  property,   is  the increasing of the force of men employed  on  development.  The  work  of  opening up  the property is not going  ahead fast enough to s.uit *him. In his  opinion the Tamarack is not a big mine,  but it is a rich one. The last shipment  from the, property went 172 ounces sir's er arid 36 per cent lead.  ��� This is Mr.  Lehen's second visit to  Nelson, _ but   something    like    twelve  years   have   intervened  between  them,  and what was then a partially cleared  townsite is now the fourth city in the  province. When Mr. Lehnen first visited  Nelson he came in for. the puropse of  purchasing  tlie  Silver  King  group   of  mines,   which,  though- slightly   developed, had ac that time. attracted considerable attention on the outside by  reason of the unusual richness of the  ore.

One interesting case will come before the  court of revision, which has been called  for the 29th instant. Some 34 residents  ore anxious to exercise the franchise.  They gtot together and purchased a  couple of town lots at ?50 each, and  tbe entire 34 are seeking to have their  names placed on th'. voters' list as  joint owners of the two lots. If they  have their purchase registered it is  doubtful to see how they can fail, but  their applicatiou for registration is being opposed.  perty-it was one of the finest looking  prospects he had seen and he at on^e  set to work to fix UP a deal for their  purchase. Old "Bill" Hall was at the  time the head of the Hall partnership  owning the mine, and little difficulty  was experienced by Mr. Lehnen in coming to terms with him. The-deal called  for the payment of $70,000, which, in  those days, considering the inaccessibility of the>country,-\vas a large figuro  to pay for a property. The Halls had no  money and had gone in debt to people  all over the coup try, to some of whom  Interests had been promised, and several of those who had interests refused  to soil upon the terms agreed to between Lehnen and Bill HaU. They considered that thoy had a million dollar  property and when an intending purchaser showed a disposition to approach the figure they set upon the property they raised. it at once. After a  great deal of dickering Lehnen gave it  up as a bad job and returned without  making the deal. In these negotiations  the present governor Bliss of the state  of Michigan was interested with Lehnen. Several other Americans endeavored to.get hold of the property, but  they met with no better success and It  was not until the negotiations with the  London investors were opened up that  the different interests in the property  were harmonized and tbe deal put  through.  Mr. Lehnen bas been in Kootenay  several time since he opened the negotiations with the Halls, but the present is the first visit he has paid to  Nelson since that time.  end  audience  would.

The  terms of the match were that the men  were to wrestle for two hours. In the  first hour neither secured a fall. After  a 15 minute interval the contest was  continued-and~after-21"~miriutes Roeber  succeeded in putting his man to tho  floor. The rest of the time gave no further result and Roeber was declared  the winner. The men were' evenly  matched as to weight and it is conceded  that Nechad is the best man Roeber has  yet defeated. Bob Fitzsimmons acted as  the time keeper. After tho result was  announced Roeber anr.cur-c-ed that he  would retire from the wiestling ring.  Hayes Resumes Management.
