 -J_?l!tf  '$i  : r, I  ESTABLISHED  1892  WEDNESDAY MORNING,  NOVEMBER 27,   1901  DAILY EDITION  THE LIFE OF THE PLACE  THREATENED.  COAL COMPANY PROPOSE BUILDING AND CONTROLLING A  TOWN OF ITS OWN.  .The town of Fernie is in the throes  of an excitement all its own and one  which affects the entire people of the  place. This is nothing short of an intimation from tho men iu charge of "he  Crow's Nest Pass Coal Company that  they intend to buna up a town or their  own at the mino at the expense of the  men who have invested their all in the  town of Fernie. This intimation from the  managers of the coal company is not  new, but the business men of the place,  thought they had exerted sufficient influence upon the company to induce a  change of program. In this, however,  they were evidently disappointed and  it is again announced that the company  will build a number of cottages at the  mine for the accommodation of the mar-  Tied men employed, and at the same  time put up a big general store. Tho  effect of such a move upon the business  men of Fernie could easily be imagined,  iu view of the.fact that coal mining is  the sole industry of the place, and it  is putting tho case mildly to say that  tho people of Fernie are very much  worked up over it. An indignation meeting of the residents of the town was  held on Monday evening, when the reported intention of the company was  denounced in unmeasured terms, and it  is' not unlikely that a delegation' of the  business interests of thc place will be  sent to Toronto to interview the directors of the company with a view to securing some assurance that the contemplated move will not be made.  The plea advanced by-the company is  that by providing accommodation for  the men at the mine, as well as a store,  the company would get clear of the  saloon nuisance, as no liquor would'be  permitted, to be sold on the company.'s"  ^property, unless under the regulation  of the company. This phase' hi the question is lost sight of by the business men  of Fernie, who do not relish being their  brother's keeper at the expense of the  businesses which they have built up in  the town. They point out that the coal  company owns the wator and light systems iu the town, from the operation  of which it bids fair to realize very substantial returns upon the amount invested in the same, and they contend  that the company should be satisfied  with its return from these public utilities without encroaching upon the legitimate trade of the business men who  have cast in their lot with the future of  the town. They are also particularly  ���sore at the action of the company in  .view of the fact that when its interests  were assailed by other centers' in the  ^pTovince'with'respec^toHhe'desired-rail-^  way legislation, the business men of Fernie to a man supported the coal company and did everything in their power  to secure the most favorable treatment  for the company both at Victoria and  Ottawa. They state that their object in  ���so doing was that by building up a  prosperous coal mining industry in their  immediate . neighborhood they ould  be able to establish a commercial center at Fernie, but this possibility is removed if the coal company reaches out  for the profit on the sale of necessaries  to the men as well as the profit on its  coal mining operations. ' <*<  Commercial men who have returned  from Fernie report business as more  or less stagnant in view of...the change  which threatens. The merchants express themselves as too uncertain to  buy, and they are now ordering from  hand to mouth instead of laying in  stocks as formerly. This condition will  hardly' be changed until some assurance  is received from the coal company that  it does not intend to embark in the  commercial business.  lent shape and capable of turning out  almost any quantity of ore desired, and  it is likely that the force of men will  be retained throughout the winter, if  it is not increased. In addition to tho  mill the owners of the property are installing a compressor plant, and the air  is expected to bo ready for the drills  by thb end of the present ^cek. As to  the output of the property when stoping is commenc2d Mr. Ewar said that  this would in a very great measure be  determined by the capacity of the mill  upon thc ore, as the mine was in such  shape that it could ue counted upon  furnishing all the ore it might be fouad  desirable to put through it.  With respect to the Keystone property Mr. Ewart said good progress  was being made with development. A  crew of ten men was employed on it  and tho property was looking well.  The appearances so far were that the  Keystone would be a shipping property, but further work might demonstrate that it was a'concentrating proposition. It was still in its prospect stage  and very little could be said definitely  concerning it. The -vein was very flat  and the conditions generally were described as those met with ir. the Arlington property, which was but a short  distance from it.  pany would demand cheaper rates than  they are now paying. The above are two  reasons why the West Kootenay Power  & Light Company are so anxious to  prevent Nelson from putting in her own  power plant; and they are two reasons  that should make every property owner  in Nelson more than anxious to see  the city put in its own plant.  MADE 10 PER CENT  IMPORTANT  NEGOTIATIONS  Affectine: Mining Interests.  Much good is expected to result to the  mining industry of the district from the  conference which is now going on in  St. Paul between the the transportation  companies and the smeltei- Interests  which have been handling and treating  the output of the mines of British Columbia during the past year. One of the  best informed mining men in the province assured a Tribune representative  yesterday that as a result of the present  conference the conditions for tho "producers of lead would be very much improved during the ensuing year. What  is expected is a reduction in the transportation aud treatment charges. The  smelter and railway interests are said  to be agreed on this, and the chief object  of the present conference is the arriving at a common understanding to this  end. If the object sought by the conference is obtained the mining industry of .British Columbia will be placed  in such a position as will render it entirely independent of.the United States  smelter trust. Once this ^position is se-.  cured, it is thought the representatives  of the trust will change their tactics  and treat with th3 British Columbia  miners, instead of trying to crush tham  _out.'.of .existence. -The -proposed refinery  project will also be greatly affected by  the result of the negotiations now going on at St. Paul and the result of the  conference will be awaited with interest, as in the interests represented  there is material for a combination of  no small proportions, and which would  bo sufficiently strong to command respect from the trust.  Lipton Will Undoubtedly Challenge.  LONDON, November 26.���Sir Thomas  Lipton's announcement yesterday evening at the banquet at the Hotel Cecil  that he was willing to make another  attempt to lift the America's cup should  no one else do so may be taken as tantamount to a definite challenge. His  inquiries in yachting circles have elicited the fact that no other British  yachtsman has the slightest desire to  step into the breach and it is safe to  say that his Shamrock III will be seen  in American waters. However, with a  view of taking no illegitimate advan  tajpe sir Thomas will not officially communicate his decision to the New York  Yacht Club until the eve of the expiration of the time which a challenge may  be received. W. G. Jameson, tbe ama:  teur yachtsman who represented sir  Thomas Lipton on the Shamrock II  during the races oft Sandy Hook this  year, whose absence from the banquet  last dight was much noticed, will not  take part in any of sir Thomas' future  yachting ventures.  ANNUAL REPORT OF CENTER STAR MINING CO.  FAIRLY  GOOD  SHOWING POR  BAD YEAR'S OPERATIONS  AT ROSSLAND.  Two Ymir District Mines  Robert Ewart, who is interested in  the development of the Keystone and  Second Relief properties which Messrs.  Finch aud Campbell have under way in  the Ymir district, was in Nelson yesterday. In speaking of the work at the  Second Relief Mr. Ewart said it was  . the expectation of the superintendent  to have the mill in operaion by the first  of the next month. This mill is something new of its kind in this section,  heing a combination process or amalgamation aud concentration. Its capacity is given as forty tons per day, and  from experiments made on the Second  Relief ore it is expected that it will  save 25 per cent of the values in amalgamation and the remainder in the  concentrates. The ore is also estimated  npon concentrating five into one: This  would give a remarkable high grade  conceutrate, as .00 tons of crude ore  which was shipped from the property  some years ago yielded ?-10 net to the  mine after dedeucting freight g.nd treatment charges, including a thirteen mile  haul.  There are at present some 50 men employed at the mine, which is in excel-  Pittstmrg Switchmen Strike  PITTSBURG, November 26.���A strike  for increased wages for all switchmen  belonging to the Switchmens' Union of  North America in Pittsburg district was  inaugurated this morning. Reports have  not been received from all parts, but the  officials of the road say that it affects  all roads entering Pjttsburg and all pri-  ^vate^iiTdividual^and corporations. ^Eere"  are between 600 and 1000 of the local  organizations, and officials say that response was general. In their demands  the switchmen asked for an enforcement of a" standard scale of wages. This  calls for 27 cents an hour for day foremen and conductors, the night men to  receive two cents more per hour, their  work being more difficult and dangerous.  Method'of the Cashier.  >EW YORK, November 26.���Concerning the Liverpool bank trouble the  London correspondent of the* Tribune  cables: "All the details are now known  as to the methods pursued by bookkeeper Goudie and his confederate in the  colossal . bank "frauds at Liverpool.  Goudie knew the nature of the accounts  in his ledger and became familiar with  his customers' checks. He is alleged to  have supplied expert forgers outside,  with information as' to amounts which  would pass without exciting suspicion.  The checks were forged, on the information and crossed and honored in due  course by the Bank of Liverpool.  A Sactimonious Fraud,  SAN FRANCISCO, November 26.���  The temperance restaurant proprietor,  W. A. Dennet, who once conducted a  chain of. restaurants across the continent from New'York to San Francisco,  has failed for $92,000 with no available  assets. He has nominal secured assets  of. $38,000. Most of his creditors are  women pf missionary societies.-  MANITOBA FARMHAND KILLED  DO  YOUR  OWN  THINKING  On Important Municipal Issues  The men and women who own real  estate in Nelson should not be mislead  by special pleading. They should not  allow mayor Fletcher and alderman  Selous to pull wool over their eyes. The  value of real estate in Nelson can only  be enhanced by a demand for real estate. A demand can only be created by  increasing the population of Nelson.  ��� The population of Nelson will not be  increased unless industrial enterprises  can be induced to locate here. Were the  city of Nelson' in a position to offer industrial enterprises cheap power and  light it would have an advantage over  any of its competitors. Cheap power is  within reach on Kootenay-river, and it  only awaits development. By developing and owning that power, Nelson will  be in a position to attract the attention  Of industrial. capital. Without it, she  will not. The West Kootenay Power &  Light Company is doing its best to prevent the city from getting a site for a  power station on Kootenay river. Why?  Because the managers of that company  knew that a municipal owned and operated up-to-date electric power and  light plant at Nelson .vould be competition that would hurt them in many  ways. Were Nelson to make a rate for  electric lighting lower than the present rates, which could readily be done  had the eity adequate power, the people of Rossland would be clamoring for  a reduction in the rates they are now  compelled to pay the West Kootenay  Power & Light Company. Were Nelson  to make even a $35 rate for power by  the year, the industrial enterprises that  are now purchasing power from the  West Kootenay Power & Light Com-  By a Desperate Bandit.  CARTWRIGHT, Manitoba, November  26.���About dark last night W. Bourness,  living three miles soivcn of here, and  his man, J. Asling, were sitting down  to supper when a man called and asked  to be directed to Mr. Wright's place  just across, the boundary. Mr. Bourness  went out a few rods with him to show  him the way, when the stranger pulled  out two revolvers and said: "You and  your mother have plenty of money in  the house and I must have it or I will  kill you and burn the "buildings." He  followed Bourness into the house with  his pistol leveled at him. As he came  in the door threatenig to shoot, Asling  rose up and opened the stair door, when  the murderer fired. The explosion put  out the light and Bourness dodged to  one side, when a shot passed over his  head. Asling was shot through the  heart, the bullet passing through the  stair door, while the bullet fired at  Bourness passed over his head through  a picture and lodged in the wall. The  murdered ran out of the house. Mrs.  Bourness, the aged mother of Bourness,  fainted as a result of the shock. Bourness ascertained that Asling was dead  and then carried his fainting mother  a distance of half a mile or more to  John Palmers, a neighbor. The word  was spread around and John Robertson, another neighbor, brought the information to town and laid information  with magistrate Laughlin. Provincial  policeman Gimby and Dr. Davidson  were at once dispatched to the spot,  accompanied by a number of citizens.  After a preliminary investigation _anJ  finding Asling quite dead they returned  to town and the intelligence was at  once wired to the chief of the provincial  police. Special, constables were dispatched from here to'neighboring points  on the American side and every step is  being taken to' affect a capture. The  murderer is of medium height and is  solid and active, either a Frenchman  or half-breed, withdark moustache and  features, and was riding a white horse.  Asling was an inoffensiye man of about  forty years of age, and a bachelor.  Swept Overboard and Drowned.  PHILADELPHIA, November 26.���  Captain Hill of the steamship Belgen-  land, which reached her docks today  from Liverpool, reports that when the  steamship was abreast of Nantucket  light Mrs. H. MacNeil, wife of Dr. Mac-  Neil of Ann Arbor, was washed overboard and was drowned. ./There was a  heavy sea running and Dr. MacNeil,  who was on deck watching the storm,  went to his stateroom and called his  wife to come on deck and view a passing steamship. The couple had only  been standing together for a few minutes when pn immense wave swept over  the Belgenland, carrying the unfortunate woman overboard. Her body was not  seen afterwards.  ��� ROSSLAND, i November 26.���[Special  to The Trihune..!���Tho union men had  a somewhat leDgthy conference with  manager Kirby of the Center Star yesterday;- but neither side Lave anything  to say for publication.

PARIS, November 26.���A tragedy  characteristically Parisian was committed in thc heart of Paris today at the  corner of the boulevards des Capucines  and the place de L'Opera. A husband  shot his faithless wife and her lover  In full view of hundreds of people. The*  opera square was filled with Pjeople  at lunch time, when a cab drove across  the square followed by a man running.

LONDON, November 26���Much significance is attached here to the unusual  military tribute attending the removal  of count Von Hatzfeldt's remains from  the German embassy to the train which  is to carry the body of the late German  ambassador. It "is announced that king  Edward commanded "that these honors  be paid and it is understood that the  British government in so doing desired  to show that it was not affected by the  anti-English temper in Germany.

'  Carelessness Is Alleged.  WASHINGTON D. C, November 26 ���  At a cabinet meeting today secretary  Wilson talked to the cabinet a short  time about what he regards as the failure of Canadians to keep an agreement  with the United States as to the bringing of cattle to this country from Great  Britain, Scotland and Ireland. This  agreement, made a number of years ago,  provided that an American and Canadian inspector of cattle should be kept  in Great Britain to inspect cattle coming to Canada destined to there or the  United. States.    This    was    to   guard  SOME OF THE BODIES BLACKENED  AND CHARRED BEYOND POS-   /  SIBLE BECOONITION,  against getting disease into this country. The information secretary Wilson  has is that the Canadians have withdrawn their Inspector and permits the  inspection to be made by a citizen of  Great Britain, who may be competent,  but does not have the same interests  that a Canadian would have in the examination of cattle.  100 CONSERVATIVES KILLED  In Yesterday's Isthmian Fight.  COLON, November 26.���An overdue  passenger train with a marine guard on  hoard has just arrived here. The train  brings news to the effect that general  Alban with about 300 government troops  has crossed Barbacoa bridge and is continuing his march to Colon. He is now  at Tavernilla, where he is resting. The  liberal forces continue to retreat before  him. They explain their retreat by saying they have no ammunition.

DETROIT, Michigan, November 26.���  Twenty men are dead, IC of them unidentified  and  so  terribly  burned .and'  blackened that Identification is' impossible, and 27 other me*1 are lying in the  various hospitals of the city suffering  from terrible cuts and burns and other  injuries, all results of the explosion of  one of the hoilers in the Penberthy Injector  Company's   large  plant  at   the  corner of Abbot  street and  Brooklyn  avenue at 9:30 o'clock today. In addition to those more seriously injured a  dozen or more of the employees  who suffered comparatively slight injuries were  taken directly to their homes. Twenty-  five men and boys have not yet been located either at their homes or at the  hospitals. Tonight a great force of men  are searching the ruins by electric light  and this work will not be stopped until  every foot of the debris has been removed.  The  Penberthy Injector  Company's plant occupied,half a square at  the corner of Abbott street and Brooklyn avenue.   It was composed -of two.  brick buildings separated by a sixteen-^  foot alley. The rear building.in which  the-boilers was-located was completely'  destroyed.   It' was  three , stories   high.  The  boiler  room  was   located/at  the  northwest corner-on the first floor. It  was in this building, that most, of the  manufacturing was done. -  - It is impossible to tell exactly how  many men were at work,in the various  departments of ,thev rear- building when  the explosion occurred, hut the officers  insist that the number was not over 85.  The awful crash came without warning.  The floors and roof-of the rear building  bulged  upward-and  then  crashed/  down  a  mass  of  debris.   Windows  in;  houses for a block around were broke  by  the  concussion.  Flames   broke out  "from the.ruins almost immediately and  the horror of fire was added to the suffering ones imprisoned.  Calls were sent out for all the ambulances in the city. Pending their arrival neighboring houses were turned  into temporary hospitals. The flrst ambulances on the scene were inadequate  to carry those who had already been  extracted and express wagons wero  pressed into service. All the laborers  who could work to advantage were  clearing away the debris. The floors  and roofs had fallen at an angle and  had formed a sort of huge cover under '  which the fire burned fiercely. Not un--  til the firemen had chopped through  this did their streams begin to have  any appreciable effect on the fames.  Engineer Riley v.hs among the first  to be dug out from the wreckage, his  escape being miraculous-.;**. He _ was  knocked���to^the-���floor-and one of_tfie~  smaller testing boilers was blown o.cr  him, forming a shield that kept the  falling timbers from, crushing him. The  escaping ste?m, however, burned him  frightfully. Riley's firr.t words were,  "How did it hr.pren? The engine and  boilers were all right "  Gradually the leseuers worked their  way downward through the pile. By  this time there wer<i no cries or groans  to aid them, fer the flames had destroyed those unfcitunntes who were not  killed by the explosion or the fall, but  tho work cf rescue continued with unabated haste. Stretcher bearers stood  beside the delvors nnd bore away the  burned ..nd blackened bodies. A vacant  house adjoining the fictory was converted Into a temporary morgue. In  several cases the charred oorpses were  so hot when ievovered that theyculd  scareely he handled.  Tho hospitals were besieged by tho  relatives and friends of the injured men.  Tho front building of the plant sustained comparatively little damage considering the tremendous explosion  within fiffe-in" fe?t of it There were a  d<;7.en girls anions the employees on the  fourth finer of this building, but nobody wds injured  The nropcrty loss according to secretary Childs is afc< ut $lSr.,CG0. The firm  carried {70,000 fire ar.d some boiler insurance, but bow much of the latter  Childs could not state Subscriptions  for the relief of the sufferers have heen  started Nothing is known as yot about  the cause of the explosion. The boilers  had been recently inspected and the engineer was known as one of the most  careful nnd capablo men in the city.  Threat of the Brigands.

According to  the annual report of' the minister ' of  minep these" six" offices recorded ��� 925  mineraL claims during the year "1900, as  against 777 recorded in the Nelson mining division alone, to say nothing of the  hundreds' that -were recorded at Fort  Steele and the Goat-River mining division and at Rosslaiidl- But staking'  claims is not a fair indication of what  is being done in a mining country. Certificates-of work are'what count, for it  is only by work"' that a mineral' claim  can be"developed. The-anniial report of  the minister' of mines shows'-that -1701  certificates of work Vere" recorded in the  mining" recorder's offlee at' Nelson during the year 1900,- as against a total of  1448 recorded in the' record' offices at  Nakusp, Lardeau^ Trout' Lake, Revelstoke, Golden, and Windermere. If the  ���figures given above prove anything,  they i prove that' James M. - Keilie of  Revelstoke is wrong" in his contentions.  According to thef plan of redistribution outlined by fhe^TrihunS/.the Nakusp- mining',division, -which- is ".now in  Revelstoke riding, would be in a-riding  made up of Slocan^ Slocan City, and Nakusp   mining   divisions.   Is -there   any.  "gerrymander", in /such a, group of mining divisions. The Nakusp division has  little in common with Revelstoke, and  much that is, in common with the towns  and camps on-Slocan lake. Trout Lake  mining division would' along" with Ainsworth'"mining"'-'division  form   another  riding. Where is the "gerrymander" in-  such a riding? Laideau mining divis-'  ion would, as it is now, be in the Revel-,  stoke riding, as Golden would he. Win--  dcrmere mining, division would be at-"  tached lo the. Fort. Steele-riding.

Sex ML  In a letter printed in the Nelson Miner yesterday, J. M. Keilie of Revelstoke  says the last letter he forwarded to The  Trihune was chopped into' mince-meat  and only such portions as suited The  Tribune were printed. Mr. Keilie is trying to mislead the public.  Mr.  Keilie  forwarded his letter on a printed slip,  much  the same as advance agents of  showmen  do  their  press  notices.   The  portion of tho effusion that he claims  was made mince-meat of by The Tribune was clipped from one of the Revelstoke papers, and cot from the printed  slip sent The Tribune. Mr. Keilie has^  a right to his opinions regarding the  question  at  issue;   but when  he  says  The Tribune is trying to gerrymander  Kootenay so as  to  deprive  James  M.  Keilie or Wilmer C. Wells or any other  politician of a seat in the legislative assembly, he is simply "talking through  his  hat."   Mr.  Keilie  starts  by saying  that the southern portion of Kootenay  has  been pap-fed  by the  government!  and  that Nelson  riding,  in particular,  is a grave-yard of disappointed hopas.  The Tribune took the public accounts  for the last two years and proved by  them that the Revelstoke and  Golden  ridings, in North Kootenay, had, in the  last   two   years,   received   ?132,450   for  roads,   trails,  and   bridges,  as  agaiiist  $106,572  for the/Fort Steele and Nelson ridings and that portion of Rossland   ridins   that   is   situate   in   wjest  Kootenay district.  These figures show  clearly which is the "pap-fed" portions  of   Kootenay.   The   Tribune   published  census  returns  showing  that  the  two  ridings in North Kootenay had a population of 4941, as against a population  of 20,567 in the three ridings in South  Kootenay.  There are no less than six mining  record .offices in the present ridings of  Revelstoke  and  Golden,   namely,   Na-  -Although Revelstoke and Golden are  recognized centers'of trade for a considerable area of country to the south  (there is"-neither population .nor trade'  north" of the main line of the. Canadian  Pacific, except the-little there is. in-the  vBig Bend country), only 507,free miners' licenses in all were jssued in the  two towns during the year. 1900. At the  town of New Denver, a plact that  makes no pretensions to anything other  than being a central point from which  ^to view magnificent scenery. 728 men  took out free miners' licenses.  The Tribune has no desire to belittle  any section of Kootenay,  or no wlsh-  ;to deprive any town or mining division of representation in the legislative  assembly.  During the nine years  that  it has been published, it has endeavored  to- describe  fairly  and  impartially  tho progress  that was being made I in  ' every section of East and' West Kootenay districts. When shipments of ore  were made from mines on Tobey cre'ek,-  in  Northeast Kootenay, as much "was  made of such shipments as if they had  been  made from mines on Forty-nine  creek,  in  Nelson  mining division.' No  newspaper in the province, outside) of  'the   Fieguson  Eagle  and Trout  Lake  Topic, has printed more news regarding  the mines in what is known as the Lardeau  country.  When James  M.  Keilie  of  Revelstoke  was   a  member  of. the,  legislature,:The Tribune often defended  him from the attacks of the very class  he is now- coddling up to. If the above  are statements of fact, is it at all likely  that The  Tribune is actuated  by improper   motives   when   insisting   on   a  fair redistribution of seats for Kootenay? The Tribune believes that Kootenay, outside of the two cities of Rossland and Nelson, is entitled to six mem-,  ��� bers in the legislative assembly; and it.  believes tthat" no section of the district  is entitled to.specia.1 consideration be-'  cause of. sparsity of population or because of undeveloped natural resources.  The   .Goat   River   mining' division,   in  South, kootenay, is as sparseiy. settled'  and is in-as undeveloped a condition1 as  any   section   of   North   Kootenay)" but  that is no.reason why Goat River mining  division  should   be shown special  favors. The population of Kootenay district, outside the two cities of Rossland  and Nelson) is 20,000, which "divided by  'clude'as nearly as -possible 3350 people  with'common" interests. It'would be unfair to give the 2000 people, around  Golden arid the 6000'in Southeast Kootenay-the same "representation; and it  would be equally as unfair to give the  3000 people- around Revelstoke the'same  representation as the 5300 in the Slocan  and Kootenay Lake sections"of the'dis-,  trict. There are* 3000 people in Trail  Creek and Nelson mining divisions, out--  side the cities of ^Rossland and. Nelson,  and-they are as "fairly entitled to a rep-  i eseritative --as'1 are   any ' 3000   people  ���"along the main line of the Canadian Pacific railway,' The Tribune stands for;"  a  fair  redistribution - of  seats   in the'  province;'but unless the people of Kootenay advocate fair treatment for themselves, how-can they expect the people  of Esquimalt and Victoria district and  Nanaimo district and  Lillooet district^  to_yield,that which' they have long had  unfairly? Probably James M., Keilie of  "Revelstoke can answer the above question, without referring ���to either The  Tribune or its editor or, the "pap-fed  constituencies"  in  Southern Kootenay.  Three years ago the Coeur d'Alene  country in Idaho was 'under martial  law, and the members of the miners'  union were in 'bull-pens or in exile,  The men in the bull-pens and in exile  were .replaced by men from Missouri  and work in the mines was resumed.  This led people to believe that miners'  -unions were a thing of the past in the  Coeur d'Alenes; that they'would never  again hold sway in that country. Now  there-are-unions-in-every-camp-in-the-  Coeur d'Alenes, and many of the members   are   the  Missourians' who  were  . i .  brought ,in, to rei)lace the union men.  Were the Rossland Miners' Union de-  feated^ tomorrow and disbanded, within  two years the union' would be as strong  as it ever has been^ and the strongest  members in the organization would-be  the,men from Missouri who were imported to break up the union organization. History but repeats itself. Unionism is not a fad. Instead, it is a principle. Local unions make mistakes, and  blunders, and are o'ten defeated, just  as do political parties; but such mistakes and blunders and defeats do not  destroy political parties, nor do they  kill unions. Both have principles that  are'in the main sound; hence both live  until organizations having broader or  better principles are brought into ex-.  isterice.  The annual report of the Center Star  Mining Company of Rossland should not  be discouraging to holders of the company's shares. The ore sales" during the  year amounted to 80,419 tons, "of-the average value of $14.64 a ton. The company paid $175,000 in dividends and m  addition wiped out $140,000 of debts.  The mind has been| unworked since  July last, but it is now being pumped  out/ and the manager and'the miners'  unions are conferring. It is to be hoped  the conference -will result: iri an aini-  cable arrangement of the differences that  .exist between the union and the' mine  management. With the Center Stari at'  work,- there surely should be no diffir  ciilty in paying' dividends regularly  vif the values in the ore hold good.  'fS,4n0f*���s fy^^Co^nAtf- Ml?

Lady Xlice Montagu i3 the title which  the baby daughter of the duchess of  Manchester, formerly Miss Helen Zimmerman of Cincinnati, is to receive at  Jier christening next week. The name  was decided upon at a family conclave  held shortly" after, the arival of the  little lady of Kimbolton castle on October 27. Naturally gossip says that the  young duke had hoped for a son, and  in that event even the heir would have  been lord Maudevilie. tfut if there is  any disappointment concerning the new  baby of the house of Manchester it is  *'��� qnot apparent to the villagers.  \ All day long on October 27 a messenger from Kimbolton Parish church  ���awaited news in the servants' hall of  ���' the castle. Finally the young duke  '.himself���"Kim," as he is called by the  old-country " families���came smilingly  to announce that the stork had brought  a daughter. The messenger set out posthaste to the church, and for the rest  of the day tae chimes rang out merrily  over the village. ,  Twenty-four years ago they rang out  to announce thc birth of thc present  duke���the ninth duke of. Manchester.  The day after lady Alice's birth the  whole village was en fete. The school  children were given a holiday and the  duke playtd cricket with tho villagers in  the public park. For many years no  heir in' the Manchester house has been  anticipated more-anxiously. The Manchester were married early in Novem-  liei" last year. It was a romantic and  ���scrret wedding, celebrated in the old  Marylebone- church, London.  When the facts became known  the young duke said to a "reporter:  Please tell the American people that  this is a love match. There is no dot,  no dowry and no marriage settlement."  A copy of this dispatch was shown to  Eugene Zimmerman, father of the bride,  - a Cincinnati capitalist rated at $15,000,-  000. Ho smiled, drove to a- telegraph  oifice and cabled immediately: "Congratulations and a blessing. Come home  ''ou a wedding trip." 0  The Manchesters were accustomed to  American duchesses, for tlie du ice's  mother was the beautiful Consuelo  Yznaga of New York, and they readily  accepted   the  American  heiress.    Kiin-  '/ bolton Hall, the ancient seat of the  Manchesters and associated with the  Montagues of Shakespeare, was opened  for the Manchesters on October 1st. The  young duchesss came with a retinue of  servants and nurses, and there the little  baby was born. The little girl flrst  opened her eyes in king William's  room, so-called frcm the fact that when  William of Orange reigned that room  in Kimbolton Hall was often occupied  by him   She-is-said-by---competeut--judges-to,  be a most prepossessing infant, with  blue eyes, reddish brown hair and an  extraordinary good pair of lungs. She  is a sturdy little miss, too, tipping the  beam at the figure that rivals the weight  ot the most plebeian baby in Kimbolton  village. Lady Alice's layette is an extensive affair and nothing like .it has  been- seen since the advent of the  duchess of Marlborough's' first child.  The outfit was the gift of the baby's  grandmother, the dowager duchess iif ���  Manchester. Althougn rumor has it  that she was not entirely pleased with  tlio  wedding   last, year, jthe   dowagor  '-duchess has become devotedly attached  to her daughter-in-law. Her-gifts to  the young duchess of late have been  -magnificent. For each check that she  sends to her son she dispatches one to  her daughter-in-law as well. The layette for lady Alice consisted of : the  daintiest linens and silks in London  shops, exquisite little caps and saques  from Pans aud lace made expressly  by Brussels women lace-makers. The  baby's grandmother, the duchess of  Devonshire, has sent a "beautiful cradle  lined with silk, richly embroidered with  the Manchester coat-of-arms. Among  the tenantry of Kimbolton estate there  is much, lfejoi'cing and many quaint  gifts have been sent up in token of the  good will to.Llady Alice..  The christening is to take place  publicly in St. Andrews church, and the  duke of Devonshire, who may be the  next premier of England, will probably  be godrfather.   From*the servants' hall  . stories filter out to Kimbolton folks of  the delight that the young duke takes  in the new baby. "'E's;like the rest  of us folks, and there's nought difference between a duke and a poor man,"  they say. "Kim," as they call Manchester there, insists upon holding the  baby, and has given it as his opinion  that lady Alice recognizes, him already.  The last of November the Manchesters  will go to Tanderagee castle, in Ireland, where the duke and duchess of  Connaught (king Edward's brother)  will be their guests for the fall shooting. It is said the dowager duchess of  Manchester was surprised when duke  "Kim's invitation was accepted by royalty. She wrote to her son: "How absurd of you to think that the king's  brother would accept your invitation  without your wife having first heen  THE CANADIAN  BANK OF COMMERCE  WITH WHICH IS AMAIX3AMATED  THE BANK  OF BRITISH COLUMBIA.

Nevertheless the  invitation was accepted through the  influence of lord and lady Rossmor*).  It is expected now that when the young  duchess appeals in the court set it will  be with as much prestige as was accorded the duchess of Marlborough a  few years ago.  Mr. Zimmerman vibrates between  London aud Kimbolton castle, and the  probabilities are that he will settle  a handsome dot upon the baby. A few  days ago he advanced $50,000 in a last  payment which cleat ed the young duke  of debt ar.d made him eligible to his  seat in the house of lords when parliament meets.  Kimbolton-castle now has a retinue  of forty servants, in contrast to the one  cook and butler who have inhabited  the place for a number of years. They  were sent down from London, and it is  l umored that they were all selected and  pait by the dowager duchess. It is said  that the day previous to the departure  of the Manchesters for Kimbolton,  Crucher, the young duchess's maid, wa.s  abruptly dismissed by a telegram from  Portman Square. It ran: "Your services are no longer required. Please  send your account." Croucher was  formerly the maid of Mrs. Howard  Gould and had Deen with the young  duchess"since her marriage. Papa Zimmerman, when informed of the affair  by Croucher, who was furious, express-  3d mild surprise but declined to inter-  fore.  ��� Long experience with a spendthrift  husband has made the older duchess  keenly aware of the value of money,  and the story goes that duke "Kim,"  who has boen dependent"upon her and"  his grandmother, the parsimonious  duchess of Devonshire, has not left an  order with his London tailor for twelve  months. He is showing a disposition  to settle down that gratifies his mother  and his American; father-in-law. He  has given up his old haunts in London  and is rarely seen in public except in  the company of the duchess or his  friend Arthur Peet.  In 1S92 the present duke of -Manches-<  tor came to the title���one of the oldest  in England���and to estates so heavily  encumbered as to render -him practically a bankrupt. He started however,  upon the career of a man with millions  to spend. In Paris and at Monte Carlo  his face becaine as well known as in  England. He gambled prodigally and  began a series of engagements to actresses and of courtships" to heiresses  that has seldom been - equalled. First  ho sued for the hand of Miss May Goe-  lei, daughter of the late Ogden Goelet  and  possessing   a   dot   of   $10,000,000.  "I would rather see a daughter of  mine dead than married to the young  duke of Manchester!" said the sturdy.  American, who knew well the beautiful Consuelo Yznaga, the New York  girl, and her unhappy life as duchess  of Manchester. To console himself the  younk duke offered, his hand to; a  charming girl at the Gaiety theater  popularly~known^as_Miss -Gladys:���HisL  mother intervened and rescued him.  After that came the wooing of Edna  May, Gertrude Elliot, Miss Pauline  Astor, daughter of W. W. Astor, and  finally an engagement to Miss Joan  Wilson.  Miss Wilson was an-Erglish beauty  of the famous Transby Croft family of  Wilsons. This match was broken off  because the Wilsons were not prepared^  to furnish a large dowry, and the  dowager duchess declared that ,duke  "Kim's" allowance was just sixteen  shilling a week. In despair, tne duke  then rushed off to Paris and began an  ardent courtship of the dazzling but  somewhat passe Cleo de Merode, the  dancer. He opened. an account with  a jeweler and bought $3,000 worth of  jewelry which- Cleo graciously accepted. Sho coyly promised to marry  him. and when the news became known  at the British embassy some one seut  word to the duke's mother and grandmother. They proceeded post-haste, to  Paris and took the duke by force away  from the object of his affections.  Cleo Merode protested that she was  heart-broken, although. afterwards she  said she had considered the duke's proposal only a complimentary, one, such  as she had had-from the king ofthe  Belgians. .'������''���  By this time the duke's finances had  reached the last stage of a down grade.  He confided to his chums that he. would  have to "marry an heiress or throw up  the sponge."  Meantime, he thought seriously of  takiug to the stege and went through  a short career as a reporter for a New  York newspaper.  At: a fancy dress ball early last year_  in   London   he  met   Miss  Zimmerman,  the Cincinnati heiress. It is said to have  been a case of love at first sight.  Miss Zimmerman was a blonde with  fine reddish brown hair, deep blue eyes  and a charming manner. Through her  mother's family she is related to George  Eliot.  Within six weeks of the meeing the  duke had proposed and was accepted.  Assured by Mr. Zimmerman's blessing���for the young duchess is his only  child���the young couple came to.the  United States and toured the country  in a private car on their wedding journey.

London actress, sued the duke for breach  of promise, and as a climax he was declared bankrupt and debarred from parliament.  it is believed that the Zimmerman  money, combined with a sum from the  duchess of Devonshire, has smoothed  over these" difficulties and that from  now on it will be plain sailing for lhe  young duke ahd duchess.  As Miss Helen- Zimmerman the  young duchess of Manchester displayed  a firmness of character and an independence "of judgment that augur well fo.*  the future career of the couple.  Her educations was chiefly acquired  at the convent at Auteuil, France, where  she was an especial favorite with the  sisters. She was extremely devout, almost ascetic. "  _ She was an excellent student, and  received a thorough grounding in literature, history and modern languages.  Then she-went to England under the  chaperonage of her mother's sister,  Miss Evans, and was introduced- into  .the smartest set in London.  She was well liked by the duchess of  Marlborough, whose influence is, of  course, of paramount value _in social  circles.  .-At one time Miss Zimmerman became  strongly impressed with the ancient Oriental religion as taught by Swami Vi-  vikananda, the Hindoo scholar, who  lectured ��� in America about four years  aeo.  In appearance she is lithe and graceful. She is devoted to outdoor spo'rts,  rides superbly and plays golf like a  veteran. She has won six prizes in golfing, one from Tom ,Morris, the. amateur champion, on St. Andrey's links,  in Scotland.     ��� .  The duke of -Manchester is scarcely  a typical Englishman except in athletic  build and sturdy carriage.. From .his-  mother he has inherited the "dark face  and dark eyes- of the Spanish. He is tall  and heavily built, weighing 200 pounds,"  with the neck and shoulders of a boxer.  He goes in ~for" all sorts'of athletic  sports.  In manner he is extsemely democrat-:,  ic ahd is a favorite - with" interviewers."  His habit of .talking' frankly, combined with his youthfulness, has sometimes involved him in difficulties.

F. Tilley, the commandant at the station. The news was received with_ great  surprise by- the" Samoan people, who  had been making extensive preparations  for the .past month tb welcome captain  Tilley on his return. On "November 6th  the Samoan arrived with captain Tilley, and Mrs. Tilley on board. The Sa-  moans of-Pago Pago had built a,huge  catamaran of native trees on which was  a bower decorated with evergreens and  flowers. Flags.andi* streamers were flying from the-masts. They approached  the steamer with this huge raft and captain and Mrs Tilley descended to. it,  whence they were rowed ashore, while  songs of welcome composed for the occasion were sung. Upon landing at the  custom house there was a large crowd  to meet the- captain, who was loudly  cheered .by whites and natives. Captain-  Tilley at' once resumed his oflice as  commandant. The Solace arrived on November 7th with admiral Evans and-the  oflicers of the court martial. The same  day captain Tilley was served with a  copy of the charges and specifications  and ,was ordered - to deliver up . his  sword. The trial of captain Tilley began on Saturday, -November Oth. The  most important witness was Dr. Black-  well. He-testified that at about 10:30  p.% m. and toward midnight he once-  saw captain Tilley lying down outside  his ��� cabin door undergoing a Samoan  mssaage treatment. This treatment' -'s  very common here'with whites as well  as native chiefs, The prosecution closed  its case on Monday, November llth,  rather earlier than -was expected. Tuesday the defense began. The trial is expected .to close tomorrow. It appears  that admiral Casey .-after the investigation dropped the charges of maladministration against captain Tilley.

Their cases were very mild.  Allan Forrester, provincial constable  at Robson has been straightening out  the affairs of the late "Jerry" McBride,  who died in the Kootenay lake general  hospital a few weeks ago. The estate  consists of a few chattels, the sale of  which will be sufficient to pay the funeral and other expenses.  "The C. P. R. bridge over the Columbia near Robson is about completed,  the riveting of the structure being  about the only work remaining to be  done. This it is expected will be completed by Christmas, after which the  transfer point will be removed to the  west side of the river.  The tenders for the Theo Madson  stock of men's clothing, furnishings,'  and boots and shoes were opened yesterday, and of the eleven bids that of  A. Ferland was the highest, his being  a half cent higher than the next best.  Mr. Ferland will move the stock to his  store in tho Elliot block and have it  on sale in a few days.  George Johnson of Thompson's Landing is in the city. Ho reports work as  being advanced on the Beatrice as  rapidly as possible. The former workings on the property have been abandoned for the present and the 500 foot  crosscut which is now being run is designed to catch a new ledge carrying  substantial gold values which has bean  traced through the Beatrice group.  The Indians of British Columbia have  little .cause for complaint over the  treatment they receive. Two months  ago, Baptiste, an Indian who makes his  home near Castlegar, had a couple of  horses killed on the C. P. R. track.  His case was taken up by the Indian  department and the other day a check  was issued by the railway company for  the amount of the claim. Had Christian,  been white lie would probably now be  fairly veil started on a law suit of t��t  doubtful outcome.  * The wholesale grocers of Nelson and  ihe retail grocers of Nolson and vicinity  am no nearer the settlement, of their  differences than they were a month ago.  They"held, arcther joint meeting last  evening and talked and talked but nothing in the way of a settlement was arrived at. The -.'whoJeoilp grocers were  represented by Percy. Chapman of the  A Macdonald . Company. und Robert  Robertson of J. Y. 'Griffin & Company,  and in the couise cf the evening they  were drawn into about torty speeches.  Throughout; tbo mest of them it was  evident that -they regarded the ultimatum of the letailers. that they should  ..online their business within such channels as would be equivalent to a request  to get off the earth, and they declined  to move. They eaid in effr-.t tnat the  retail merchants of Nelson did very Dc-  tle business with them as it was," tnat  in effect they were us-ed by the Nelson  retailers merely as conveniences, and  i>n top of this it was proposed by the  limitations suggested for the wholesale  trade to prevent them from doing business with others.  The proceedings' wore opened by T.  S. McPherson, who was in the chair. He  announced that the object of the meeting was to f.eeure from -the wholesale  men their views With respect to the  definition given to wholesalers and  whether-they would cor.s-.ent to be bound  by it.     - ���  Percy Chapman was the first to take  tho floor. Ho said ho considered it a  qirestioa upon wliich each wholesale  house should .speak for itself. So far  as bis own he use was concerned he was  not pcepaie.-l't'o. atcei-t the truue limitations suggested. Since the house had  been opened in Nelson every endeavor  hai! been-made, to c>tend every reasonable protection'tc the retail trade. He  realized tliat there wore instances in  which it inigh! te consideied that goods  were sold which should properly be  handled-by the retail trade but in every  case such tin-ines*? war. repugnant to the  hoiiM> and was only tolerated because of  considerations asid'j from the sale of Lhe  articles involved. It was a class of business of which,, tho wholesale hoa&cs  would ho very" glad to got rid, but. refusal to fillihe crdeia might result in  driving, away a ,very -arge volume of  business whichg even tho membeis of  the retail'grVijcors conceded was legitimate, for the ..wholesale- houses. .Mr.  Chapman did not* feel that he was in-  any wav an:��weralle for-the shortcomings ot others, but he w?is prepare! to  stand by the recv.d o: his own house in  Nelfcon for the past six years. He de-  fled anyone to,,shcwih,-it its treatment  of rtho. retair trade Md not been considerate and-this being so he r:id not  feel bound to piomif*o _more than a  continuance of the same course.  !t was then up to Robert Robertson.  He too ?sid he could not accept the limitations sup-pested by the retailers. He  expl.'iine-l that his house did not sell  to hotel?, tc yrdlng lions*-.s, restaurants  or fiinal! mining comranips. and nc was  willing to discuss" ar-y account upon his  led&f.r as to whether it was legitimate  tr.'uie cr net, but ir. askii.g the Nelson  wholesalers to accept the limitations  suggesiod the offcrl was made to force  their- business- within-narro\ver"-iines  than confined the'lupinesa of wholesale  housf>*? anyv.hero in Canada or the  United States He lemsrfced that it had  been suggested that if the.������wholesale'  houses would accept the timitations set  out for them any loss in business which  they might suffer in cne direction would  be madf> up to them in the increased  trade -vhich they would do with the  retail traders. This was very weli as  far as it went, but le did not think t^at  the mon prnsent c'ctihl lay claim to-representing the retail trade of the country. He had reasons for holding this1  opinion, as there did not appear to be  any gonoral sympathy on the part of  the reti'l traders of the country with  the action which had teou taken by the  retail trailers of Nelson.  Edward Forgnson was present and  was asked fur hi* views upon the question in dispute. Ho explained that he  was not. a grocer or.-d did,not feel inclined to mix up in the quarrel which  appeared to e>ist between the wholesalo and retail brancue.-. of the trade.  Having fortified himself iu this fashion  hn then proceeded to pour,a broadside  into the retail grocers for their action  in issuing the circular which they did  to the trade throughout the country  wilh a view to defeating Hie elf oils of  the wholesal.*> trade cf Nelson in securing a reduction in the outward freight  from Nolson on gcods consigned to bona  fide retail traders. He said it did not  matter very much to him whether the  Nelson' retail grrceis brought the  wholesale grocers to their knees, but he  was free to express it as his opinion  that thoy had emplojed a dirty weapon  to accor.iplisn their ol-iect, as they had  struck at.the entire v.'holc-sale trade interests of-'iheircfty. ���*���.������  On the-retailers', side there was a  now talkur in tho'���'r��,is-cu of Robert F.  Green, M. P. P., of .Casio. He listened  to wliat the wholesalo roci! had to say  and thf-n proceeded to light into them  after tlio most approved fashion. He  could see no justification for them in  pursuing trade which they did not want.  His idea of it was that if the wholesale  -men did not wish to travel outside of  the limits of the wholesale trade they  had the rwiody in their own hands-  refusal to cc business Being in Lhe  letail business, Mr Green was not very  particular where the limit was drawn  on the wholesale ��..���___ Iu fact he waa  of the opinion that several who called  ihewae&rea vlwlcsale  men  vere  not  NELSON, B.C.  ag*6����*B*s^ffC.i��__��ai^^  KASLO, B.C.

This remark he did not intend to apply  to the wholesale men present, but from  the remaiks that had heen made by  them he did not cenpidw tnat ;j,ny good  could c:nie from a continuance of the  discussion, as there did rot appear to  bo any chance of arriving at a decision  with respect to tho limitation bf the  trade nf the wholesaler as distinguished  from the trade of the icwi;ier.  II. Giegerieh made, a number of  speeches, in the cou>se of which he reiterated tho \jews. he expressed at tlie  previous meeting. The gist of nis remarks was that ho. had coo much at  stake to permit of the granting of a  special rate to the wholesalers of Ncl-  ,->on unless they would agrea to confine  themselves strictly to tho wholesale  trade.  The local retail men presented a  united tront. They wore for the. trade  limitations as.set out ic their dratt to  the wholesale men and wanted united  action on th>3 part c��f the wholesalers  rather than indivdual treatment of tne  question, though they expressed themselves as willing to consider a question  s-f .compromise. They considered that  the volume of illigitimate business done  by some of the wholesale houses waa so  small tint from thc standpoint of policy  the wholesale houses doing it misht  very profitably content to discard it. It  ���was not sc much the loss of the sa,les  referred to that they complained of a."  the demoralization whieh they workud  upon ihe other trwle. They submitted  the wholosale men to a running fire of  questions for a couple of houis and in  the end suggested that the matter be  referred to a committee with a view to  bringing about an arrangement, "out this  suggestion was rejected by tbe wholesale men on the ground that they had  stated their position individually as  clearly as they evild and tnat further  conferences were unnecessary. An aa-  ji'iirnnnont. wis then moved and earned  and rho matter rests just where - the  opening of tho Q'Fcns^ion found it.  BUSINESS MENTION.

WASHINGTON, November 26.���-The  fact was brought out today in the trial  of Mrs. Lola Ida Bonine for the killing  of James Seymour Ayres, jr., that she  made a private confession of her part  of the tragedy on the evening after the  .homicide, several days before she took  the police officials into her confidence.  This recital was made to George B.  Gardner, an attorney employed in the  law division of the interior department,  who was a.:boarder at the Kenmore  hotel and usually sat.at the same table  at which Mrs. Bonine took her meals.  Gardner was on the witness stand today and told his story'for the first  time. He said Mrs. Bcnine had sought  him out and asked him as to whether  she should make a public statement.  That he had suggested to her that, sha  delay her confession until the theory of  suicide, which was first entertained,  should be fully exploited. A number of  other witnesses were heard during the  day, several of them being men who  had taken Ayres out to neighboring saloons during the evening of May 14th.  These witnesses generally added that  Ayres had taken about two glasses of  beer and that he was not under the. influence of liauor.  Acting under instructions from D. J.
