 k  '���-'a i  ESTABLISHED   1892  TUESDAY  MORNING,  NOVEMBER  26,   1901  DAILY EDITION  TABLES TUMD  COLOMBIAN GOVERNMENT  HAS ITS INNINGS.  UNITED STATES WILL PROBABLY  PREVENT   THE   BOMBARDMENT OF COLON.  COLON, Colombia, November 25.���No  evening train left Panama yesterday.  The government are attacking the liberals at Culehra Tho government gunboat Geneial Pinzon. left her anchorage  close to the. other warships last nigiit  and it is reported to be landing troops  on the north end of Colon. There is  much con.motion in. the streets. People are seeking refuge on board the  'United States gunboats Marietta and  Machias ond along the railroads and on  the piers.  Transit across the isthmus has been  stopped. Marines from the United  States battleship Iowa at Panama havo  heen landed to piotect the railroad and  are now on the line where fighting is  going on. As this "dispatch is sent the  commotion in the streets is ended and  calm now reigns. There is no jubilation, which is evidence thai thc liberal  army is not advancing towards Panama.  It is reported to have been defeated at  Matchin by gener.U Alban's command.  Tho latter is said to 'te pushing on to  Colon: At a conference held at 1 o'clock  this morning on board the .British  cruiser Triune at which general Foliaco/  &enor_de Larosa, secretary to Diaz, and  the commander1: of the foreign warships were present. The general agreed  at tho request of the nuval commanders  and on thc ground of humanity, having  in view iho largo foreign population of  Colon, not to land troops here or open  ���fire on the town hefoie 6 o'clock Friday  evening. The Colombian gunboat general Pinzon is badly ofi for provisions  and the conimandeis of all the wai ships  agreed to supply her -with the necessary  stores. The gunboat has not yet returned to Colon and her whereabout* is unknown.  WASHINGTON, November 25.���Mr.  Hereira, charge de affairs of the Colombian legation, loday received following cablegram:  "PANAMA, .November 25.-��� Rebel  army completely defeated at Culebra  and Emperador. Governor inarched last  night upon Colon. Trafiic inteirupted  ���yt-i.terdav, but will be re-established to-  dav. ARJON, acting governor."  WASHINGTON, November 25.���The  state department has received a cablegram from consul - general Cudger at  Colon this afterncon in which he said  that the railroad is now unobstructed  and that tho government forces have  been successful ovtr the revoiutiouis*.s.  He further reports tliat tbe oluejackets  fiom the Machias have gone inland and  now occupy a .point midway  isthmus. J  i^^-NEW==YORKi^M.oyjemhCT:  sages from the agent of the* .-Panama  Railroad.& Steamship Company al. Colon were received here today at the olii-  ces of the company The cablegrams  . said that serious fighting was expected  at Empire, a small place on the line nf  the Panama railroad. .They also stated  that the'Machias. captain McCrea, had  landed more men at Colon, and that the  Iowa had for the first time landed marines at Panama. They-also contained  the information that the Colombian  gunboat General Pinzon had arrived at  Colon .under tho command of captain  Ignacio with troops aboard from Cartagena, and the threatened bombard-  lr.ent of the city of Colon was io take  place today at S o'clock. New York  time. They say that the city was in-tho  possession of the rebels and that captain McCrea had forbidden thc shelling  of the town. Consul-general pf Colombia dc Brigard was at his ofiice early.  He said that ho e> peeled advices today  regarding the situation.  WASHINGTON, November 25.���The  United States government has taken  charge of the isthmian transit. A dip-  patch at the navy department today  from captain Perrv o? the- battleship  Iowa at Panama reports that fact. Cap^  tain Perry says that general Alban  with 600 men is fighting the llberals-on  the line pear Empire. Transit is in  danger of interruption. Captain Perry  has landed with a detachment of men  from the Iowa and has started wilh a  train to clear transit, and also establish  detachments of men tf keep ic. Commander McCrea of the Machias at Colon  has cabled tiie uavy department of the  approaching bombardment of that town  and asking for instructions. He has  been ics-tiucled to take such steps as he  deems r.ecessary for *:he protection of  American interests at Colon.  WASHINGTON. November 25.���It is  pretty well understood here that thero  is to be no bombardment of Colon by  either side. While commander McCrea  was given wide discretionary power and  ���nothing was said to him about stopping  ihe bombardment directly, nevertheless  the state department established a precedent in these maUer�� last year when  it instructed Mr. Cudger to warn some  insurgents at Panama that they would  not be allowed to bombard that port.  If the government troops on the Pinzon  should persist in their purpose it is  said that the commanders of the various  varships at Colon would require that  ample time bo allowed for' tho with-  j_rawal irom, the Jown of all foreigners.  and the attacking force, lo escape restraint, would he obliged to direct their  bombardment with such rare precision  as to destroy tho insurgent defenses  without harming the railroad property  and even without endangering the passage of trains, conditions which probably could not be met.  Tho secretary of the navy cabled captain Perry of tlie Iowa to assume full  command of all thc United States naval  forces on both sides of the isthmus in  order to insure harmonious operations.  Consul-general Cadgers last dispatch,  which came after 1 o'clock, was about  as follows: "Our troops have arrived  at Matachin, one half of the way across  the isthmus. No obstruction aad Colombian government sremed to be victorious c\er tho insurgents."  COLON, Ncvember 25���An armed  guard of marines from the United  States battleship Iowa has re-established transit of the Mhrnus and details  from the Iowa's marines are now protecting each passenger trail'. There has  been tierce fightim* f.t Empire station  on the railroad line between Panama  and Colon, bftween the insurgents and  the troons of the Colombian government with heavy losses on both sides.  WHAT THEY SAYInENGLAND  plimonts to the United States he confessed his chagrin at" being unable to  bring back "the famous old mug." He  offered both the Shamrocks as. trial  boats to any Britisher anxious to challenge and closed his remarks with the  declaration lhat he would be willing  to make another attempt for the cup  should no one else do so, and expressing his confidence that the third Shamrock would be in better luck.  Lord Tweedmouth, proposing, sir  Thomas' health, said tho yachtsman's  influence and sportsmanlike conduct  has done much to clear the mists of  misunderstanding between the two  countries and paved the way to the  Nicaraguan  canal agrement.  BY-LAWS GALORE  On Isthmian Affairs  LONDON, November 25.���All tho  morning papers discuss South African  affairs. The Daily Telegraph says: "The  United States are'acting in accordance  with their diplomatic rights, but they  may find it extremely difficult to adhere  to their ideal program."  lhe Daily News says: "All this plavs  straight into the hands of the United  Stales and that energetic power has  not been slow to take advantage of it  by forceful acts, _ whicli may at any moment develop into an occupation of tho  isthmus." "   -  The Morning Post, which hardly expects the isthmian squabbles to have  any serious effect upon the relations  between the great powers, says:. "Germany will not indulge in any special  risks or exertions over a mere point of  honor-in the Venezuelan dispute. Without expressing an opinion on the.abstract justice of the claim of the United  States to control the isthmus, we believe no other power is likely to pro-  vent. Tho Munroe doctrine is not likely  to be contested so long as the European  powers are divided among themselves."  of   lhe  _25.���Mes^  Ravages of the Gale.  NEW ' YORK, November 25. ��� The  great storm which came speeding up  from the south on Saturday night has  spent its force in this section of the  country and the waters 'driven up on  lowland and beach are subsiding. A  mere careful survey of thc storm-swept  coast indicates that the aggregate dam-  ago will exceed the general estimates  of yesterday. Hundreds of small craft  were wrecked or badly damaged,  wharves and piers" at overy exposed  point were battered down, many buildings at seaside resorts were unroofed,  lowlands were Hooded, city cellars were  filled and hundreds of town houses  were danuiged. Estimates of the aggregate damage run slightly below and  considerably above ?1,000,000. Storm  bound shipping was released early today, but the seacoast railroads and  trolley service will limp until washouts  _are_-fillcd_-in.���Linemen^_were���busy__re__  Toronto Man Missing  "BOSTON, November 25.���On the arrival of the Dominion liner Commonwealth at this port today, captain McAuley reported that Arthur Bollon,  said to be living in Toronto, had been  missing since last night and that he  was supposed . to have been washed  overboard by the heavy seas or to have  committed suicide. Bolton when last  seen was wandering aimlessly about  lhe ship. This morning it.was noticed  that his bed had not been slept in and  the man could not be found. It is understood that Bolton was a civil engineer who had recently been in India,  where he had military fever.  ��� A Present From the Kaiser.  NEW YORK, November 25.���The  Berlin correspondent of the London  Times and the New Ycrk Times says,  as a token of interest in the Germanic  museum at Harvard ' University, emperor William is having prepared for  presentation to Harvard a unique collection of plaster casts. The casts will  duplicate . seme of the finest German  medieval stonework, such as the tracery  in the choir cf the Harberstadt cathedral. >  Bull righting in Mexico.  ��� MEXICO CITY." November 25.���The  hull fighting season in Mexico opened  Sunday with Mazzanti, the Spanish matador,- in the arena. Many prominent  people, well known in the political  world, were present.

WILL ATTEMPT  IT AGAIN  Lipton Is Not Discouraged;  LONDON, November 25���"Should no  one else challenge, I am willing seriously to make another attempt to lift the  cup." This announcement was given out  hy sir Thomas Lipton at the banquet  at the Hotel Cecil in his honor tonight  aud which was attended by more than  400 -jucsts.  "It would never do," said sir Thomas,  "to give up when only a pulse beat  came between us and victory."  Thc ovation to the challenger for  the America's cup was marked with the  greatest enthusiasm and all classes were  represented at the banquet this evening. Lord Tweedmouth acted as chairman, and in proposing the health of  president Roosevelt he referred to his  versatility as a politicia.n, statesman,  sportsman and yrriter. President  Roosevelt's name was greeted with tremendous applause, although only a few  Americans were present. Those included  general C. B. Williams.of Washington,  Reginald Ward of New York, who has  lived in London of recent years, and  Eugene Zimmerman, father of the  present duchess of Manchester. Sir  Thomas" speech was the feature of the  evening He maintained the excellence  of the Shamrock II and that a wee bit  of luck would have turned the tables.  "It was only the matter of the toss  of a coin," said sir Thomas. "We raced  over a hundred miles and the decision  was only a matter of seconds, which  goes to show that we are justified in  believing that we can build boats to  bring back the cup." Sir Thomas paid  warm tributes to W. G. James, to designer Watson and captain Sycamore,  as well as to the challenger crew. He  declared nothing could have exceded  the fairness of the Americans. "They  made, everything easy," said sir Thomas,  "except tho trifling matter of lifting  the cup. (Laughter).

The  debts he contracted in those days  were to be settled after his marriage  with the rich young queen, and quite  recently Henry made a clean breast of  the matter to her Upon learning a.ll  the particulars queen Wilhelmina declined point blank to pay her,.consort's  debts,__the__result__being=a__v_ery^=violent-  scene between them, which ended in  Henry .rushing away to Germany and  Wilhelmina being taken' ill. II is said  that only the most important telegrams  sent to him by the queen's mother,  queen Emma, induced Henry to return  to Holland. The queen's mother is anxious to preserve appearances at least.  Since his return to Holland Henry has  not been once to the palace where his  -queen is. As a proof of the serious  character of the queen's illness, in spite  of all reassuring reports to the contrary, may be.mentioned the fact that  the recent Qfflcial Gazette officially did  not contain a single royal command,  which is an unprecedented state of  things.   Has His Money Ready.  EAU CLAIRE, Wisconsin, November  25.���H. Ingram received today a letter  from Charles A. Stone, brother of Miss  Stone, the captive missionary. Mr.  Stone asks Mr. Ingram to send assurances direct to the Peabody Banking  house in Boston that he (Ingram)  would pay by wire if necessary the $5000  offered by Ingram at the Hartford  board meeting. Mr. Stone says it may  come to pass when minutes as well as  dollars will be precious, but he intimates that a compromise may yet be  effected whereby the captives will be  released without raising the large amount of money at first talked of. Mi".  Ingram has written to the Peabody  bank, giving the assurance asked by  Mr. Stone. Mr. Ingram says he will telegraph the $5000 called for under the  conditions of his pledge.  The Knapp Rolling Boat,  OGDENSBURG, November 25. ���  Knapp's roller boat demonstrated today its ability to roll in a blinding snowstorm with a stiff north wind. It rolled  from Prescott across the St. Lawrence  river to Ogdensburg, but missed the  channel to the upper harbor and rolled  into the soft mud in a bar abreast the  city and settled hard, surrounded by  snow and ice. A steamer following the  roller was unable to get near her, owing to the shallow water. Efforts to tow  the boat by a long hawser into deep  water were unsuccessful and she may  not be released until spring. The inven  tor  and  a  stockholder,  who were  on  While sir Thomas paid glowing com- 1 hoard, were taken off Jn small boats. 1 street;   (2)  that tenders be called for  "The question of the city lighting  cropped up at the meeting of the city  council last evening when the communication addressed to the mayor by Mark  B. Thomas, manager of the Nelson  Coke" & Gas Company was read, in  which tho city was offered gas for  power purposes at the rate of $48 per  horse-power per annum. When tin  letter was read mayor Fletcher remark-,  ed that the communication had been received some time before but he did not  attach sufficient importance, to it to lay  it before the council. In his opinion the  letter was too indefinite. He added that  he had since asked, the manager "of the  gas company to furnish the city with  details as to the cost of gas engines  and when'they'could be laid down, but  up to the present he had not received a  reply. So far as the price quoted for  gas went ho said it figured out at just  *the# price which the city was entitled to  receive gas from tlie company under the  terms'of the by-law which was .the company's - charter. With respect to the  price of gas engines he said he had  asked for quotations .upon 100 horse--  power engines -from' three of the leading "makers and had received reply  from but one. -The firm which had answered his enquiry .was tlie Union Gas  Company- of San Francisco, and the  prico quoted for-a 100 horse-power gas  engine laid down in Nelson was $6500.  It would take about four months to get  delivery of it after the order was placed,  as orders for engines of this size were  not carried in.stock., -To this cost would  have to'be* added that' of a dyriajno  which would range from $2400 to $3115,'  according to thc kind purchased, with  $190 added f��:r necessary extras. The  dynamo would be rtady for shipment  in thirty days. It was apparent therefore lhat the chief delay would be over  the gas engine.  Alderman Irving said he was informed by manager Thomas of the gas company that the gas "engine wculd not cost  more than $4000 and that it could be installed in two months.  Mayor Fletcher in reply said he has  wired the gas company's officers in the  east and from the fact that they had  not answered his enquiry he took it  tbat they did not have an engine in  stock    This disposed of the matter.  J. K. Reid had a communication before the council asking to be kept Informed of the progress of the lighting  question and intimating that his company would be prepared to go ahead  with its undershot "wheels in tho spring  if there should be au opening for them.  His letter was filed.  Mayor Fletcher then brought up the  _question_cf_.the__vote__for__the__school__ex^,  penditures. He said he-had been informed by the school trustees that it  would cost a. great deal. more proportionately to furnish one of the rooms  in the new school than it would to complete the furnishings for the four  rooms. There would, also be other  money required for school purposes and  the secretary of the school board was  of the opinion that a vote of $10,000  would probably be sufficient to take care  of the $5000 already voted and provide  such further sum as might be required.  There was also money required for  other purposes, arid petitions had been  presented in connection therewith  which might be read to the council, so  that the members could take such action  with respect to them as it thought fit.  The petitions wero all signed by the  same realty owners. The first asked for  the submission of a by-law to, raise the  sum of $10,000 for school purposes, the  second $5000 for an Isolation hospital.  Alderman Selous, in explaining his  position, said he had always favored tho  isolation hospital. He was no*t sweet  on the other expenditures, but thought  it would be easier to dispose of debentures for a decent amount than for  $5000.  Alderman Irving thought it was  rather late in the life of the council to  submit s-uch by-laws. If, as had been  suggested, it was thought desirable to  submit by-laws for everything that was  needed why not have a by-law to raise  funds for a new city hall and fire-hall.  Alderman Gillett expressed the opinion that if the by-laws proposed were  to be submitted to the ratepayers it was  crly fair that, the by-law for the establishing of an electric light plant ou  Kootenay river should also bo submitted, as it had been asked for before  the by-laws at present suggested.  Mayor Fletcher said he was agreeable  and to advance matters alderman Selous  moved the reception of the petitions  and gave notice of his intention to move  the introduction of the necessary bylaws at the next meeting of the council.  The report cf the fire, water and  light, committee, was received and  adopted. It recommended the appointment of Thomas H. Rankin as engineer  at the city electric light station at a  salary of $100, to date from December  1st.  The report of tho public works committee was also adopted. It recommended the construction of a G foot  sidewalk to be laid from the west end  of Victoria street to connect with Silica  50 headboards for the marking of pauper graves; and (3) that the city engineer be instructed to take such steps  as might be necessary to abate the nuisance caused by the water under the  buildings on lots 23 and 24 in block 61.  W. W. Beer and J. E. Annable appeared before the council and asked for  rebate of half the license of the opera  house for the present year. The council  was willing and'half of the license was  cut off.  Dr. Stoddart was present to support  his request for electric power for-his  dental parlor. His request was granted  subject to the supervision of the superintendent of the electric light system.  E. Kirby's request for ^some -grading  on Park, street was referred to the city  -engineer,  F. W.-Swannell had a communication  before the council asking for the $500  remaining unpaid of the city grant of  $2000. On motion of alderman Irving,  seconded by alderman Madden, it was  decided to issue a check for the amount  On the subject of fire horses- chief  Lillie was instructed to purchase a  team in Rossland at a cost of $500 plus  the charges of bringing them over to  the city from Rossland.  The trouble over the sewer on Victoria street was   taken   up,   when   the  Jcity engineer explained that the sewer,  'was a foot shallower than was shown  ��� on the drawings in his office.    It was  left to tho mayor to make the hest arrangement possible for the drainage of  the Salvation Army barracks.  Liverpool Bank Frauds.  LONDON, November 25.���The pugilist  Dick Burge was arrested in London thi3  morning on a charge of complicity in  the Bank of Liverpool fraud. It is said  that the police have recovered a large  amount of the money that was taken.  The' sum discovered aggregated ��100.-  000. A number of other arrests are anticipated. An embargo has been placed  on the banking account of a well-known  bookmaker? Later in tho day Burge  was brought up in the Bow-street police  court charged with uttering checks aggregating ��86,000 when knowing them  to be forged and was remanded.

MONTREAL, November . 25.���Ocean  navigation closed here today with the  departure of the steamship Banana for  Bristol. During the season 396 steamers  arrived from sea with a tonnage of  998,018,* a decrease of 50,000 from last  year. Since 1898 there has been, a decrease of 300,000 tons. The South African war, which has taken away many  ships, is blamed.  ST. JOHNS, Newfoundland, November 25.���Four large icebergs are today  visible from this port. They are drifting south into the track of the Atlantic  shipping. Icebergs have never been  known to pass here so late in the season. Their presence is consequently all  the more dangerous to, ,ocean shipmasters, who do not now expect to find  icebergs on the Grand Banks.

HALIFAX, November 25.���Saturday  evening the dead body of an unknown  man was found in the woods two miles  from Dartmouth with a bullet hole in  his head. He was well dressed, but nothing was found on him which would  lead to his identity. Evidently a case  of suicide.  . TORONTO, November 25.���Investigation into the charge of alleged collusion  of police with gamblers of the city was"  concluded on Saturday. In view of what  had transpired at the' inquiry H. C.  Hocken, editor of the Daily News, who  made the charges, withdrew them and  practically admitted that he had been  misled.  TORONTO, November 25.���Professor  Goldwin Smith says the decision of the  privy council regarding the Manitoba  liquor act is a lesson for politicians  not to trifle with such questions any  more. They have played fast and loose  with the question which has now left  them in a scrape. They ore in a  dilemma and they deserve it, the professor says.

QUEBEC,    November    25. ��� Captain  General Desire to End the War,  . LONDON, November 25.���Sir Thomas  Weymiss "Reid,-the author and editor  of an article entitled, "A Message From  America," in the December number of  the Nineteenth Century; will quote one  of the most distinguished members of  the cabinet as saying: "I do not think  you in England realize the depth of  feeling that exists outside-of your own  country on the subject of the South African war, nor the extreme gravity of  the situation which that feeling has  brought into existence. I am not speaking of American feeling^ .which is. largely oh your side, but the more friendly  we are to England the more anxious  we are to see you extricated from the  meshes of the net'in which* you are now  caught. It is terrible to think of."the'  pitifulness of the whole thing and of the  loss suffered by unversal -humanity  owing to the effacement of England for  two years and the consequent, absence  of her influence from the side of justice and progress." Sir Thomas further  says that the member of the cabinet in  question told him that almost daily appeals were being made to the "government of the United States by representatives of European powers to take  some step to end the war. Those representations from the ministers of the  powers were made unofficially, although  the United States government well  knew their representative governments  were backing them in it.

MARIETTA.  Ohio,  November 25.���A  dual   murder   under   most  distressing  circumstances took place near here yesterday,  three miles north of Beverley,  this county, near the little postoffice of  Hacknoy where Robert Wilkin, a prosperous farmer, lived with his wife and  child.   All day Sunday Wilkin remained  around home and much of the time was  put in drinking hard cider.    By evening he   was   ready   for   any   kind   of  trouble.    His little son  came into the  house and was seized by the drunken  father, who beat   him   terribly  with   a  board.    The wife and mother protested  at such treatment and Wilkin threatened to kill her if she did not go away  and keep quiet. With a rush the mother  caught her little ore in her arms and  started   for thc   home   of   her   father,  Jacob Stokes, who lives but a short distance down the road.   Wilkin caught up  a gun and followed the fleeing woman,  shooting.after her as she ran.   Mr. and  Mrs. Stokes heard the noise and came  out to the front porch to see what the  trouble   was.     Wilkin   saw   them   and  pointing the gun at them fired. The shot  struck Mr. Stokes  in  the  side  of  thc  head and he staggered to the side of the  porch.    Mrs. Stokes   was   shot   in   the  face and her nose and ears wero shot  off.   Stokes managed to stagger through  the door, closing and locking it. Wilkin  then shot the lock off and rushed into  the house,  screaming- like a madman.  He was met by an IS-year old son of  Stokes and fired the gun at thc lad -with  murderous    intention.     Young   Stokes  seized a gun and fired the charge into  Wilkin's  head,  blowing out  his brains  and  killing him  instantly.    When, the  manjay dead on thc floor young Stokes  came to town and told of the tragedy,  offering to give himself up.    Rescuers  went to the house and the injured were  cared for.    Young Stokes is being applauded for his act and has not been arrested.    The older Stokes will die before morning and Mrs. Stokes is dangerously   ill   from   the   result   of   the  shock. Tho Stokes family is very prominent and wealthy.  the engine was broken and the engino  and four cars were piled up in a heap,  on the line. One car was apples,  another dry gc ods and another potatoes,  and the latter were scattered in all directions. Two tramps, stealing a ride,  were injiu ed, not seriously, and a  brakeman, who was buried in the ruins,  escaped with a bruised linger. Traffic-  was stalled four hours.

It is difficult for small communities  Iilce Nelson to stand off corporations  like the West Kootenay Power & Light  Company, allied as it is to every other  corporation doin^ business in Nelsou,  with one or two. exceptions. The West  Kootenay Power & Light Company, for  reasons of its own, is .trying to prevent Nelson from obtaining a site for  a power- station on Kootenay -river. Its  management knows that if the city gets  the site and installs a plant that there  will be no chance for it (the company)  to gain an entrance into Nelson as it  has at Rossland. Successful operation  of a municipal-owned electric power and  light plant at Nelson would cause the  West Kootenay Power & Light Company much work and trouble at Rossland. Hence every effort must be made  to prevent Nelson making a success of  its venture. And, strange to say, there  are many people in Nelson who lire  doing their utmost. to* aid the West  Kootenay Power & Light. Company ;'n  this effort. It is the one issue in the  next municipal election that must be  fought to a finish. Place no man on  guard that cannot be depended on to  stand up' for the city's interests first,  last, and all the time. No more Fletchers and Selouses and Patersons and  Gilletts are wanted in office ih times  like these.  A week ago mayor Fletcher and alderman Selous and alderman Gillett  and alderman ..Paterson, although requested to do so by a petition signed  by. the .heaviest property-owners in the  city, refused to submit a money'by-law  for the endorsement of the people,  simply because the money to be raised  was to be used for installing a power  plant that would make the city independent of the West Kootenay Power  & Light Company.^ Now these same men  appear, to be anxious tn submit money  by-laws for all sorts of purposes, notwithstanding they have less than six  weeks -to "remain in office.

Mr. Oliver  does not believe in jumping from the  frying-pan into the flre, merely to  please two men. who six months ;-agd  were calling each other liars across the  floor of the house.  Mr. Oliver wanted to know, if the  Dunsmuir government was defeated  what tho Curtte-McBride* outfit had to  put in its place? Neither Curtis nor McBride could answer the question. These  two politicians arc like the Irishman  who landed in New York, who on being asked .a day or two after landing  what his political leanings were,  promptly replied, "I'm ag'in the government."

One of the most characteristic stories  of president Roosevelt's hunting experiences in the "Bad Lands" is told by  J. A. Ferris, of Medora, who was  "Teddy's" guide on his flrst hunt for  buffalo.   He says:  "Roosevelfs. flrst trip to Medora was  made in the fall of 1S83. It was a prospect that would have dismayed a less  energetic and determined young man  than Roosevelt when he first stepped  from thc train on a September day. The  buffalo ranges wore fifty miles away  over a country exceedingly rough and  unbroken. Saddle horses were few_and  untrustworthy.  Chance led him to accost J. A. Ferris,  a young Canadian, who is still at Medora, where he owns a herd of cattle,  operates a general store-and prides himself on being the man who "broke  Roosevelt in" to Western life.  "He was rather a thin young man,  plainly dressed, and when ho asked me  to go buffalo hunting with him, I was  surprised indeed," said Mr. Ferris, in  speaking of Roosevelt's first trip.  "I was considerably in doubt, too, as  to whether he would stand tlie trip. It  meant lots of.hardship and-hard work  to kill a buffalo at that timo. But there  was something in the set of the young  . man's face that told me he was bound  to go, and finally T consented to be his  guide.  "We started out with a hunting outfit  to the head of Bacon creek, about fifty  miles from the railroad crossing.  Roosevelt was on horseback and he rode  better than I did, and could stand just  as much knocking about as I could.  "On the'flrst night out, when we were  twenty-five or thirty nines from a settlement, we went into camp on the open  prairie, with our saddle blankets over  us, our horsis picketed and tho picket  ropes tied about tho horns of our saddles, which we need for pillows. In the  middle of the night ���there was a rush,  our pillows were swept out from under  our heads and our horses went tearing  off over the prairie, frightened by  wolves, which were prowling in tho vicinity.  - {'Roosevelt was up and off in a minute  after tho horses. Together we chased  these frightened animals" over the prairie until they slackened speed aid we  caught up with them.  "On the fourth or fifth day out, I  think it was, our horses pricked up  their ears and I told Roosevelt there  was a buffalo close at hand. Wo dismounted and advanced to a big 'wash  out' near, peered oyer its edge, and  there stood a huge buffalo bull, calmly  feeding and unaware or our  presence.  " 'Hit him where tbat patch of red  shows on' his .side/ said I, 'and you've  got him.'  "Roosevelt was cool as a cucumber,  took a careful aim and fired. Out came  the   buffalo   from   the   wash:out,   with  Hon. Qeo. A. Cox,  President.  B   E. Walker,  Goneral Manager  London Offloe, 60 Lombard Street. B. O.  New York   Office, 16   Bxohange   Place.  and C- Brauchos in Cunoda and the  Vnited States.  blood pouring from his mouth and nose.  'You've shot him,' I shouted, and so  It proved, for the buffalo plunged a few  steps and fell."  It was on this trip that Roosevelt  saw the possibilities of-the business of  maturing Texas cattle on the broad  ranges of the Bad Lands. While'in the  buffalo hunting camp he sent word to  S. M. Ferris and A. W. Merrifield asking  them if they would consider a proposition to engage in the'cattle business  with him if he furnished the animals  to stock the range, they ��� to assume  charge of them while on the range. Tho  result of the conference was that  sufficient funds were raised to buy 500  head of steers and thus he became a  ranchman with "cattle on a thousand  hills.'  No better illustration of the patience  and persistence of Theodore Roosevelt  is afforded than the success with which  he is able to stalk the mountain ram.  He would crawl for hours to get within shooting distance of a mountain  sheep, says Mr. Ferris, aiid when his  rifle cracked he was pretty- sure to  bring down what he was after.  Cattle growing in those days was on  the bonanza plain. Thousands' upon  thousands of Texas steers were turned  out upon the ranges to seek their own  sustenance from the range grass.  Morning and afternoon the riders circled'the country for a distance of forty  cr fifty miles; bringing into camp all  the cattle found. At noon- and in the  evening the calves , were branded, the  beeves "cut out" of the main herd and  the day's work ended for the cowboy  with a night watch of two hours about  the beef... herd, to guard aginst. "stampedes.   It was the hardest kind of work.  "I want to work with my wagon as  cowboy," he said to his foreman, S.  M. Ferris, "and I don't want to be  shown any favors. I want you to treat  me just as any other cowboy with the  wagon, and I'll manage to get along."  So Roosevelt worked for a part of,a  season as cowboy. He had his own  "string" of horses and they wore as  ugly and ill-tempered as the majority  of cow-horses. He was not a bronco-  breaker, as he had been pictured to be,  and he took no unnecessary chances in  mounting or endeavoring to tame an  especially ugly horse. But he did not  shrink from riding his own horses  when they cut up their usual capers  of mustangs, and although he was  sometimes thrown and on one or two  occasions   jpreity  jbadty:   bruised   And 1  SAVINGS BANK DEPARTMENT:  Interest allowod on deposits. Present rate  threo per ceut.  GRANGE V. HOLT,  Manager Nelson Branoh,  hurt, he stuck to his mounts until he  had mastered them.  The men with whom Roosevelt hunted and worked as a cowboy are among  the firmest friends he has in 'the world,  and never tire of telling what an "all-  round good fellow" the president was in  the days when he shared their dangers  and privations.  Esquimaux as. Epicures.  Contrary to the traditions that have  presented them as quite the reverse  of epicures, the latest explorer to return from the frozen north declares  the the Esquimaux are excellent cooks.  It .is Robert Stein of the United States  Geological survey, whose three-years, in  Greenland represent one of the most  daring and remarkable of arctic explorations, who has just presented the following tribute to the chefs of the arctic  regions:  "You read a great deal in books of  arctic travel," says. Mr. Stein, "about the  meager fare of the Esquimaux and their  disgusting gastronomy, hut I found, to  the contrary, that they were very fastidious in the matter of eating wherever  there was an abundance of game. It is  only when game is scarce'that the Esquimaux resort to raw meat, walrus  blubber and fat. or otherwise walrus  flesh is regarded a? fit only for their  dogs.  "On Northumberland Island we found  the Esquimaux surrounded by an  abundance of game of all kinds, and  their skill in preparing animal food in  all manner-of dainty styles'was quite  surprising. One of their dishes is simply  delicious. They take "young auks, a.sea  bird very common in the arctic regions,  remove only the larger tail, wing, back  and breast feathers,'and place them in'a  row on a flat stone that.lies crosswise  of one of their iarge soapstone blubber  lamps.  "Over these young auks they place a  layer of lichen-covered sod, "and on the  top of this another row of young auks,  topping the_whole with a layer ofthe  sod I have just mentioned.  "The burning walrus, and seal oil in  the lamp soon bakes the enure mass,  when the auks are removed, the skin,  with the feathers, peeled otf, and the  birds are eaten. I tell you the 'hot birds'  you get at Delmouico's are not to be compared with young auks cooked in this  manner. They also have a way of frying young auks that render them excellent eating. In short, they have a  dozen or more tricks in cookery whereby their animal-food is rendered palatable and given quite a variety.  "They appreciate to the full the fact  that the young of all animals and birds  are, when cooked, generally .tender and  toothsome, and they are always on the  lookout for tid-bits of this sor*:. Female  seals with young are eagerly sought for  the milk contained in the body, which  thc Esquimaux greedily drink. The  tongues of musk oxen aoid cariboo and  the brains of seals, bears, etc., are also  cooked and eaten. They have ways of  curing and preserving fish and flesh, so  that 011 the whole an Esquimaux lives  very well indeed when animals and  birds are plentiful."  While employed as translator in the  office of the United States Geological  survey Mr. Stein became interested in  the -work of arctic -exploration, and  formed.a desire to visit and explore.the  west coasts of Grinnel and Ellsmere  land, then, as now, a blank upon the  maps of those regions.  Finally, after many trials, he, together  with professor Kanu of Vienna, Austria,  and MivWarnbath of Boston, left Halifax on the steamer Diana, taking sup-  Flies to Peary, for a year's sojourn  in the north, .This undertaking Mr.  Stein and hip. companions carried  through to success independently and<  on their own personal funds, resources  and money. .   *  Russia Has the New Woman Also,  America1 does not produce' the only  new woman in the world. Russia, for  instance, beasts among the more prominent women an aerial navigator.  Miss Clara Folzky is the young woman  who has chosen this singular line of  distinction, and she has succeeded so  well in it'as to attract, imperial attention. At a recent "dress rehearsal" of  her flying machine the .czarina, herself  was present.. Scientists in every country  are wondering at the constructive genius-of the young Russian girl who has  designed an air. machine on original  lines.  Her machine consists of an egg-shaped airship just opened at the top, and  fitted at the base with an electric motor  apparatus. Accompanied by a little  girl, Miss Folzky ascended to a height  of about sixty yards at a recent exhibition, a sail spreading gracefully as  she rose in the air. After remaining  there poised for a while she descended  in her ship, proving tsat it was perfectly amenable to control.  Miss Polzky is expected soon to make  another test of her flying machine before the cZfir himself.  The Coronation Services.

It seems improbable, however, that the statement is  well founded. Nothing is known at  Westminster -abbey of such changes  and the English people generally would  view with- regret the, abrogation of the  strvice in any way. The homage is a  survival of the old recognition of the  sovereign by the people, and although  it is no longer necessary to kiss the  king's foot this was done certainly is  late as the coronation of Edward VI.  The ceremony of anointing dates back  to a very remote past. Every English  monarch, with the exception of James  II, has partaken of holy communion at  coronation service.  An Historic Edifice.  PHILADELPHIA, November 25.���The  main door in the historic Trinity Protestant Episcopal church in old Oxford township, a suburb of this city,  was opened yesterday for the flrst time  since the, days of the revolutionary war.  Exercises appropriate to the occasion  were conducted by Rev L. P. Bissell,  the rector. During the revolution the  American forces under "Mad Anthony"  Wayne encamped near the church and  general Wayne established temporary  headquarters at the "Old Soldieis' Inn,"  ".vhich still staids close by. It is a  matter of tradition that general Washington passed Eieveral days at the inn.  In the records of Trinity church it appears that ho irsued "orders to the soldiers that the church property was not  to be invaded under any pretext. Sinca  lhat time the dcor had remaired closed.

The Tribune has received over 150  new subscribers to its daily and weekly  editions in the last two weeks largely  owing to the missionary efforts of  Thomas Cottrell Collins. The daily  edition of The Tribune has the largest  circulation in Kootenay of any daily  newspaper either printed or circulated  in the district. Its subscription lists  are open for the inspection of bona  fide advertisers.  In chambers yesterday, in the case  of Bremner vs. Arlington, an application was made before judge Forin by  W. A. Macdonald for leave to amend the'  statement of the defense. The amendment was allowed with costs to the  plaintiff in any event. The case is an  action for damages. The plaintiff contracted to deliver timber to the defendant's property, and it is alleged the  defendant undertook to build a road so  that the timber could be delivered. The  road, it is alleged, was not built, hence  the action for damages.  It is reported that the case of Briggs  vs. Newswander is to be taken to the  supreme court of Canada. This was an  action taken by Briggs to recover certain shares in a mining company to be  organized to develop the Cork and Dublin mineral claims on the south fork  of Kaslo creek. At the trial of the action before justice Irving it was held  that the contract set up by the plaintiff  was illusory and judgment was given  for the defendant.

The case of Rex vs. Boyengton occupied a couple of hours before judge  Forin yesterday. The prisoner, - E.  Chauncey Boyengton, was committed for  trial before stipendiary magistrate Arm-  E-trion-^ of. Fernie upon, a charge of  bringing, a stolen horse into the country, but when the case came to trial before judge Forin the charge was amended so that the prisoner was charged  with stealing the horse and also having  obtained money under false pretenses  by the representation that he owned  the horse.  The trial brought out the fact that  -the-prisoner-hired-the-horse^-from-the  keeper of a livery at Gateway, Montana,  for the purpose of making a trip to one  of the railway camps on this side of the  ���lino with' a view to securing some  wedges and mauls to be used in his  business.of cutting wood. The prisoner  made his way to Elko, where the horse  was put in a livery stable. On the evening of his arrival Boyengton announced  his intention of continuing his journey  to" Fernie. It was explained to him that  the trail was in bad shape and that he  had better take the train, and: upon the  belief that he was the owner of the  horse the livery man made him an advance of ?5.75 to meet the expenses of  the trip by train to Fernie. Boyengton  did not return and was arrested a few  days later at Fernie.  The defense-set up was that the prisoner was not able to secure what he  wanted at the railway camp and that  he continued his search to Elko and  Moyiq,. and further that he was in  search of a man named Huggins, who  was engaged in railway survey work,  whom he claimed owed him considerable of a balance ior canvas goods  supplied while Boyengton was engaged  in the tent and awning business in Kalispell. He claimed that he did not pledge  the horse for the $5.75 which he had received, but that the money that he got  there was in the nature of a voluntary  loan. The weak point in the prisoner's  statement was that he had but 85 cents  with which to purchase the tools he  was after and that he did not know of  anyone whom che could have- got them  from on credit. R. S. Lennie, who appeared for the prisoner, made the most  of his case, but he had no witnesses to  corroborate Boyengton and the court  stated plainly that the prisoner's story  was not worthy of credence.  The crown was represented by A. M.  Johnson, who pressed strongly for conviction, and Boyengton was sentenced  to one year's imprisonment.      '.  and the record which he kept of his  takings showed that properly worked  a man shy of a. leg or an arm can make  much more hy begging than an able  bodied man can make at almost any  manual labor he may designate. Jones'  record goes back as far as 1899, and ������ n  inventory of his takings show that during that time he has received from ?2.50  to ?12 per day. His operations in Rossland are interesting. He reached Rossland on the 20th instant. His diary  showed lhat he "worked" two hours  and made $9, and on the following day  he "worked" for half an hour and made  $2.65. In the book was a note that the  owner had arrived in Rossland a few  days late. Had he arrived five days earlier he estimated that he would have  cleaned up ?30. From Rossland Jones  went to Trail, but there is no record of  his earnings, and he came to Nelson on  Friday night. He had visited but a few  places on Saturday when his work was  stopped by the police. He expressed a  desire yesterday to be permitted to go  to Vancouver, but was informed that  unlesshe took the train for'Spokane he  would be sentenced for vagrancy.  Nelson Mining Division Records.

WASHINGTON, November 25.���The  trial of Mrs. Lola Ida Bonine began in  real earnest today. Preliminary details  .as to the finding of the body, location,  furniture and blood stains were all in  with the conclusion of the testimony of  J. F. Drew, the capitol policeman, who  was on the stand when the court adjourned last Friday. Baker, the man  who saw Mrs. Bonine descend the firo  escape; Hopkins, who roomed over  Ayres, and Miss Lawless and Miss  Minas, who roomed on the other side  of him, testified. The two latter were  regarded as star witnesses but they testified to no facts not developed .at the  inquest. Mrs. Bonine throughout the  trial today, when witnesses described  the cries, groans and throat gurgling of  the dying man remained absolutely unmoved.  NOTICE OF MEETING  INDEPENDENT LABOR PARTY.
