 &_������  .Kv&ismm  ' i>  ESTABLISHED  1892  MONDAY MOBN1NG,  DECEMBER 2,   1901  DAILY EDITION  li! "  IP  \i  I-  , i?  AUSTBMBACM  FRED TARAL, THE JOCKEY,  ' TALKS HOSSE.  SAYS AMERICANS   DON'T  KNOW  WHAT THE SPORT IS-DIF-  FERENT METHODS.  r '          NEW YORK, December 1.���"They  dont know what racing is in America,"  said Fred Taral, the jockey, who with  Mrs. Taral returned on the Graf Waldersee recently. Under his arm was a  long golden decorated band of blue and  white polka dot satin, inscribed in big  type: "To Fred Taral, champion jockey  of Austro-Hungary, 1901, from his admirers at the Hotel Krantz." The colors are those of baron Utricht and Andrew von Pechy, the Austrian and the  Hungarian for whom he rode about  350 races, winning 90, $111,000 and the  championship. "Seventy-nine races was  the best ever clone before," said Mr.  Taral. "They race for sport in Austria.  Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and  Sundays are tho only racing days. They  have the best starter. I ever saw. They  call him Herr Reittmeister. Stand they  must. They do. The uorses go quiet.  They never bite. They never kick. The  trainers tie brush over their backs and  keep   breaking  them   until   they  learn.  .It's the lirst time up.and go. There's  no recall. Never saw a horso left. They  stand them up behind the starting machine just as if they were locked in  and ��� break them off. The horses must  behave. They're a smart lot of gentlemen and a smart lot of 'jocks." You  can't make a wrong move. If you don't  come up to time or if you jostle itc  just thc same as if you made a false  start. The starter won't do nothing to  you! Ten minutes is a tremendous wait.  Thoy warm up in going to the post and  there are no public trial heats. Only  owners are admitted.  "Talk about tracks. You could put  Morris Park into one of theirs and  never miss it. The tracks are all turf  and in places are 200^ yards wide.'There  arc no stables at the tracks, but brick  stables, fine as houses, half a mile outside. Betting is only in mutuals and  slates and pedestrian betting'. If a  jockey dissipates they don't want him.  If a jockey were caught within the betting ring they wouldn't disqualify him,  they would throw him -over the fence  into the river. You ride straight and  get paid for it. I have told every American jockey to ride straight, but some  are foolish. One rode two fouls and they  sent him back to Germany. One other  beside myself is doing right and winning  success. I rode at Vienna, Carlsbad and  in Huugaria. I'm going back in February. I had an offer of $12,000 for  seven months to ride in Russia, with  a pound a week for living expenses and  all traveling expenses paid. I wouldn't  go.^so far back.

The food, according to  captain Ilealy," is sufficient to sustain  thc white men and the natives for three  months. It will require ten days for the  McCulloch to roach Unalaska.  To the Wilds of Africa.  LONDON, Novembei J.���William Fitz  Hugh Whitehouse, Jr., of Newport,  Rhode Island, who is in London, intends starting on a fresh expedition to  Africa in a few weeks, accompanied by  captain Powell Cotton of the-Northumberland Fusileers. They intend to go  on a boat up tho Congo to Baskao,  thence through the pigmy forests to the  north, avoiding the usual forest route,  to Uganda, and then they will push on  and explore thc unknown portions of  lake Alberta. The chief object of the  expedition is to obtain big game, but  it will also include practical surveys.  Consequently valuable geographical  results may be expected. Mr. White-  house hopes to return In about nine  months.  Exodus of American Officials  LONDON, December 1.���-The regular  exodus of American officials from London is now occurring. Ambassador  Choate is now in the United States and  within a fortnight the second secretary  and thc naval and military attaches  will all be in America on leave of absence. Only Henry White, the charge  d'affaires, and William C. Eustis, the  third secretary, remaining at the embassy. Commander Richardson Clover,  the naval attache, takes back for the  inspection of the navy department another Invention for controlling torpedoes by wireless telegraphy which he  inspected this week.  Long Automobile Trip.  NEW YORK, December, 1.���Robert  Shaw of Chicago, who made the automobile record between New York and  Chicago last May, accompanied by his  wife, his brother, Walden Shaw, and the  latter's wife, will sail this morning on  tho Grafwalclerz to start from Paris on  the longest automobile trip ever attempted. It is their intention to travel in  their machine through France, Spain.  Italy, Germany and Austria, covering  a distance of 10,000 miles. They expect  to snend about four months in making  the trip.  Society Is Much Pleased.  LONDON, Decembor 1.���Society is delighted with tho announcement that  king Edward intends to, completely  change the system of holding drawing  rooms. Not only are they to be held at  night, but admission to them is to be  secured by invitation instead of by application through the lord chamberlain  as formerly.  Hall Caine Puts His Foot in It  NEW YORK, December 1.���The National Club of Whitehall is in a state  of considerable agitation', cablf|i /ihe  London correspondent of the Herald. A  few days ago tho general committeo  was called up to consider the fact that  Hall Caine had opened a Catholich bazaar a little while ago in the Isle of  Man. In doing so ho made a speech in  which hei announced himself as belonging to the "Big Church," the church  outside the church, saying that of all  the churches the Catholic church was the  church of tlie poor and speaking of the  pope as his holiness and his holy father.  These were grounds for offense to certain members of the National Club,  whose standing orders say that it shall  consist of members who hold the doctrines of the principles of the reformed  faith. Tho general committee at its recent meeting to consider whether Holl  Caine as a member had not violated the  principles" supposed. to be held by its  members passed a resolution denouncing Mr. Caine's conduct and requiring  him to give his attention to the rule  of the standing orders, which called for  an explanation or resignation, or failing either for expulsion.  Relief for Stranded Miners.  SAN FRANCISCO, December 1.���The  United States government is preparing  to send relief to the 115 Nome miners  who are reported to be stranded at  Unalaska. Captain Healy of the revenue service has received.instructions to  hold himself in readiness to proceed at  once to the far-north in command of the  McCulloch. The McCulloch is conditioned  for the trip and is only waiting more  specific information concerning the  stranded crew of the Ralph J. Long before dispatching the cutter on the mission of relief. Captain Hea',*�� when seen  said that he does not think the miners are in pressing danger of suffering  from lack of provisions, as both the  Alaska and the North American Commercial companies have provisions  stored at Unalaska. The men are destitute, but the companies will undoubt-  MUSTN'T BARK IN OMAHA  Novel Dog Ordinance  OMAHA, December 1.���-Upon the passage of an ordinance now ponding before the city council of Omaha it will  become a misdemeanor for a dog to bark  within the city limits. The measure  bears the title: "An ordinance to prohibit thQarking of dogs_jn_the__city__o��  Omaha to the annoyance of citizens and  residents and providing penalties for  the violation thereof."  The ordinance was drawn up by the  city attorney at the instance of H. F.  Wyman, a property owner and society  man, who complains that boisterous  dogs in his neighborhood makes it impossible for him to sleep. One dog in  particular, he says, has made it a practice to sit. on the asphalt in front of his  flat and bay steadfastly at t.he moon  during the early morning hours, when  social events among human beings aro  over and the householder wishes to  sleep. Mr. Wyman remonstrated with  his neighbor, the owner of the dog, but  tho animal barked on without interruption. Mr. Wyman looked up the ordinances and was surprised to find that  they afforded him no relief. In no portion of the code was a dog forbidden to  bark. The sleepless citizen took several shots at his tormentor, but his aim  was faulty in tho darkness, and the  noise simply served to awaken other  dogs. In despair ��� Mr. Wyman finally  conferred with the city attorney, and  the ordinance was drawn up. It provides in brief that dogs shall not be permitted tb occupy conspicuous seats on  asphalt, "TJrfck or other pavements, for  the purpose of raising a disturbance.  On being notified by a neighbor any one  harboring such a dog shall proceed to  reform it by either killing, shutting up  or otherwise disposing of it, under pain  of a fine.  and in the course of the search a picture  of Cleo de Merode was found in an illustrated journal. The chief of the searchers was overcome by tho sight of it,  and cried out to the English explorer:  "Do you know the good Mamizello,  tho beautiful French Mamizelle?"' And  with this he set all the prisoners free,  saying: "You are free, since the beautiful Mamizelle is your friend."  It then appeared that the chief of the  captors had been conducted to the Paris  exposition with some other natives to  figure in the exhibition of the Soudan,  and had often admired Cleo de Merode  in the dances that she performed in a  neighboring pavilion. The explorer felt  it his duty, as well as a pleasure, to  call upon the dancer and tell her of  the wonderful circumstance. Mme.  Cleo's rivals are offering a reward for  the name and a photograph of the explorer.  Wedding in High Life,  LONDON, December 1.���The wedding  of major Tweeclfmouth's sorf, Dudley  Churchill Marjoribajms, to Muriel,  daughter of the war secretary, Mr..  Broderick, at St. George's church, Hanover square, Saturday afternoon, was a  smart society function. There were several bridesmaids, including'' Muriel  White, daughter of the United States  charge d'affaires. The presents included gifts from king Edward and queen-  Alexandra, the prince and princess of  Wales, the duke and duchess of Marlborough and Mr. and Mrs. Henry White  and Adam Waldorf Astor. The duke and  duchess.have-lent Blenheim palace to  the newly married couple for their  honeymoon.  THE FUEL OF THE FUTURE  FOBD'S MELAN&E  OF THE WEEK'S EUROPEAN  HAPPENINGS.  BULLER'S   LATEST    PUBLIC   APPEARANCE DISAPPOINTING  TO HIS PRIENDS.  Much Expected of Alcohol.  PARIS, December 1.���The exhibition  of tho industrial application of alcohol has drawn crowds all the week and  has excited an unexpected wholly popular interest. Germany and England sent  engineers to study the apparatus exhibited. There are sixty patterns of illuminating appliances easily rivaling electricity, " and as for power there are  forty models of stationary engines,  from the one with a half horse power  used to run a sewing machine to twenty horse power pumps, threshers and  mills. Nine makers of "automobiles  claim that alcohol is cheaper than petroleum and has no nasty smell. One  also sees splendid parlor heaters, kitchen .apparatus and .even- a. small locomotive. M. Sartiaux, the chief engineer  of the Northern Railway, said to a  World correspondent: "Alcohol' is undoubtedly the fuel of the future. This  exposition foreshadows the greatest of  industrial revolutions in the immediate  future. Ten years hence between petroleum and alcohol coal mining will not  pay. By new processes alcohol is now  manufactured from fruit, grain, beets,  and even wood, at 15 cents a gallon,  the heating power of which is equal to  two gallons of petroleum. It is only a  question of a little time when the miners will ascend upon the joyous sunny  surface, transform themselves into  healthy ploughmen and grow fuel in  the world's open fields." Alcohol is having a great boom. The .newspapers hail  the new fuel as the greatest agricultural blessing.  A Mexican Sensation.  Latest Cleo de Merode Story.  PARIS, December 1.���From the latest  Cleo de Merode story going the rounds  it is concluded that her publicity agent  must' be a recruit from America. The  dancer declares that the story is true,  and that it merely marks another tribute to her beauty. Recently, the story  goes, au English explorer, just arrived  from the Soudan, requested an interview  with Mme. Cleo. This being graciously  granted, he proceeded to tell her how  rhe had unwittingly saved his life. He  said that he' and the explorers accompanying him were taken prisoners by  a tribe in the Soudan. They despaired  of gaining their freedom and were preparing to meet their doom, when a  happy chance changed the plans of their  bloodthirsty captors. The baggage of the  travelers was searched by the savages.  MEXICO CITY, December 1.���About  a year ago robbers entered the house of  an elderly lady named Vasquez and her  widowed daughter, senora Campello,  and were said to have stolen $50,000.  The police arrested five men, who were  tried and sentenced to prison for long  terms. It now appears the affair was a  plot to prevent the money being left to  a church. It is alleged a woman, who is  planned the robbery, employing a friend  planed the robbery, employing a friend  under a promise of reward to get men  to pretend to steal the money while the  robbers entered the house and secured  a small amount of money and jewelry,  the larger sum heing hid. The man  who was employed to engineer the supposed steal, not receiving the "reward,  confessed and this led the police into  searching the houso and finding the  $50,000. The monoy was taken away and  deposited in the National Bank of Mexico. The men now in prison expect a  new trial and mitigated sentences. The  woman who is said to have planned the  alleged robbery has been arrested and  will be further interrogated. Sensational developments are expected.  Wilhelmina and Her Consort.  AMSTERDAM, December 1.���Grave  reports continue to be circulated regarding the differences between queen  Wilhelmina and her husband, prince  Henry. The story, however, that a duel  resulting therefrom has been fought and  that the queen's aide de camp, major  Van Tot, was wounded is absolutely d��-  ined by major Van Tot's brother, who  says the aide de camp is suffering from  peritonitits. At the theaters the bio-  graph pictures of the queen are tumul-  tuously cheered, while those of prince  Henry are loudly hissed.  All Quiet at Colon.  COLON, December 1.���Yesterday and  today were uneventful at Colon and  Panama. Both liberals and conservatives are gradually resuming their customary intercourse and fraternizing one  with the other.  Death's Doings.  BERLIN, December 1.���Professor Al-  brecht, the Orientalist, is dead.  LONDON, December 1.���George Loh-  man, the famous cricketer, is dead.  LONDON, December 1.���General Buller has disappointed his admirers. They  cheered him tremendously at the Devonian dinner, last night and assured  him- of. their unstinted admiration for  his brilliant services to the empire and  their unshaken confidence in him as a  skillful and gallant officer, but he  adopted a cautious tone and failed to  tell anything more about the historic  message which he sent to general White  in Ladysmith after the battle of Colenso. He excused himself on the  ground.that he was precluded from entering into any discussion of the subject, but in view of what has already  taken place it seems scarcely likely that  he would have been stopped by mere  considerations of discipline from revealing the whole truth about the helio-  gram if he did not realize that his case  was a bad one.  , MILITARY MOVEMENTS.  The new corps which has provisionally assumed the title of the King's  Colonials is making oausfactory progress with recruiting operations.'' Complete arrangements are being made for  thorough instruction ot the troopers in  riding,' shooting ' and other exercises  necessary to efficiency. Assistance has  been afforded to the originators of the  corps by the agents general of the various colonial governments, while lord  Strathcona is personally interesting  himself in the movement. The war office authorities have taken definite  steps to prevent further emigration to  South Africa for the present. News  that the Rand mines were gradually restarting operations has led to many demands for passage to the Cape and it  has been found necessary to announce  that there are thousands'"!1,, aiting at Cape  Town and other ports for' an opportunity to return to their homes in Johannesburg and these will have precedence  over later arrivals from England.    '  POLITICAL AFFAIRS.  There is a dead calm in public affairs  at home and abroad. The'German demonstration against Mr. Chamberlain, has  abated and the ministers are wondering  how they can explain it away. The  evidences that the outbreak of students  and agrarians has had no appreciable  effect except to create English distrust  of any continental alliance and to promote good feeling with America can  hardly please the sagacious emperor,  who manages his foreign relations with  more tact than his excitable mobs of  Anglophobists. Whatever may be the  force of the undercurrent there is not  a ripple on the surface of English politics. Sir Henry Campbell Bannerman  is making many speeches and saying lit-  =tler=Sir*=Edward=Gray=appears=seldomr  but rids his mind of cant when he does  speak. Lord Rosebery is meditating a  political coup of some kind, but he has  disappointed the country too often to  be taken seriously. The ministers are  drafting measures for a full dress parade  to receive the king's speech, even if  nothing more be heard from them. Sir  John Gorse has the education bill in  hand but there is no proof that he has  succeeded in reconciling the church  party to tho present imperial grant of  aid to voluntary schools. Mr. Long's  water bill will be an attempt to create  a water board with a tribunal for. assessing the compensation of existing  corporations. The powerful monopolies  will oppose tho measure, and although  they excited tho resentment of tho mod-  crates by their insensate folly in the  last election of'tho London county council they are likely to block the bill.  The cabinet will take up Mr. Balfour's  new rules for the house of commons at  the meeting and the rest of the  new parliament will be easily arranged.  These are dull matters and foreshadow  a somnolent session unless the Buller  affair becomes unmanageable and is  forced into politics. The war and taxes  are dreary certainties, which take the  enthusiasm out of public life.  SOUTH AFRICAN CAMPAIGN.  The campaign in South Africa has become an inscrutable mystery. Nobody  ventures to forecast how much time the  business of overtaking and running  down eight or- ten thousand guerillas  will probably require. Nobody undertakes to explain how the country can  be held and fresh uprisings and conspiracies be prevented after the bands  now in the field are captured and there  is a general release of prisoners, There  are, however, no signs of flinching on  the part of the English people. "Dogged  does it" sums the attitude of the coun/  try and the determination to carry the  campaign to the end is inflexible. Yet  sir Edward Grey has expressed the general feeling of uneasiness lest the confidence of some of the race may be lost  while there is a failure to win tho confidence and attachment of the other  race.  MISCELLANEOUS.  Galway is getting impatient to know  what colonel Lynch proposes to do.  The feeling among the Nationalists is  that thc new member should be allowed  a reasonable timo in which to make up  his mind, but if he is not, prepared to  take the risk of the situation, he should  not inflict disfranchisement on Galway  by retaining his seat. His enemies declare that his object in going to the  Transvaal with an introduction from  Dr. Leyds was not so much to fight for  the Boers as to gain information and  reputation for a lecturing tour in America.  Queen Alexandra today celebrated the  57th anniversary of her birthday. This  is a pathetic one in the lives of the king  and queen. On December 1st, thirty  years ago, the king, then the prince of  Wales, regained consciousness after lying for several days at the brink of  death.. His first words on recovering  were: "This is the prince's birthday."  As princess of Wales, queen Alexandra-  won the love of.all, especially that of  the poor, who have always found in  her a friend who never grew tired in  good works.  Thinks Aguinaldo Responsible.  LEAVENWORTH, Kansas, December  1.���A letter received here says that general Chaffee has recommended that  Aguinaldo be brought to this country.  It says he has been detected in carrying on treasonable correspondence and  trying to stir up strife.. Aguinaldo is  a close captive, but advices received here  say that Chaffee believes that the  leader's presence in the islands is responsible for the insurgents' recent activity.  Played Before Royalty.  LONDON, December 1.���Sousa and his  band, by royal command, today played  before king Edward,  queen Alexandra  and the royal family.  SMELTER AT OSBORNE BAY  $155,110; free ores and merchandise,  $;i72,433; total imports for November,  $272,543. Total business of the port during the month of November, $008,222.  To Be Ready in Six Months.  VICTORIA, December 1. ��� D. S.  Fotheringham, the smelter expert, reported Saturday afternoon from Butto  and announced that he and his associates, Messrs. James Breen and H. C."  Bellinger, had definitely decided to erect  a smelter which would be capable of  treating 400 tons of ore daily at Osborne bay, the terminus of the short  line of railway which runs from the  mines of Mount Sicker to tidewater,  about forty miles from Victoria. The  buildings" will be so erected that if  necessary, the plant can be converted  into a 000 ton- smelter without any  great additional outlay. They will also  erect a Bessemerizing plant, so that  there will be no shipment of matte, but  copper will be turned out at Osborne  bay. Work will be commenced this week  and in six months the smelter will be  ready to treat ore. Wharves and other  buildings will be erected simultaneously with the smelter, so me ore of other  coast mines will be treated, although  it is expected that the Lenora and Tyee  mines on Mount Sicker, which are already shipping to the sound smelters,  will be able to keep a 400 ton smelter  busy. The tests of the Mount Sicker ore  made at Butte were most satisfactory,  it being proved that they could be reduced with practically no flux. This announcement will be the making of the  Mount Sicker mining division and no  doubt within a short time other mines  besides the Lenora and Tyee will bo  getting_ore-QUt_for_shipment._Two_other_  island mines, the Hayes and Monitor  properties, have contracted to ship  largely to the Tacoma and Everett  smelters, but before long it is expected  that a local smelter will bo erected  to treat the ores of Alberni district in  which these mines are located.  Rossland Local News.  ROSSLAND, December 1.���[Special  to The Tribune.]���It is- now known that  John Gurerrar, who was killed on the  Josie tramway on Friday, was first  struck by one of,thc tram cars at the  switch and his left leg smashed; this  threw him in front of the other car,  which struck him on the head and killed  him. The body was at once sent south,  no inquest being held.  John McKane is back from the Lavina  mine in the Duncan River district. Albert Klockman and his bride have arrived. A. C.

The War-  spite will he replaced on this station  by the Grafton.-  Macedonian Committee Disagree'  SOFIA, December 1.���M. Mihialowsky,  president of the Macdonian committee,  recently made a speech at Varna in Bulgaria, in which he denounced M. Saf-  arof, former president of the committee,  and the Macedonians as agitators,  murderers and blackmailers. Among  other crimes he accuses them of kidnaping Miss Stone, the American missionary. The Macedonians of Sofia held  an indignation meeting here today.  Violent speeches were made denouncing  M. Mihialowsky and in' which M. Saf-  arof was eulogized as the* hero of Macedonian youth. This incident is important as demonstrating the schism in the  Macedonian cf:mp. Reports received here  toady from. Dubnitza announce increased vigilance on the part of the authorities and the police of that place." Bulgarian official circles are evidently  much impressed by the menacing attitude of the United States government  in the Stone affair. They declare, however, that they are unable to do anything more in the matter than they have  already done.  FORECAST OF PROCEEDINGS  SCHLEY YEBDICT  A VINDICATION EXPECTED  FROM THE COURT.

Passers-by noticed flames on  tho upper floor of the warehouse, and  they broke in, and by using a few buckets of water prevented what might have  been a serious conflagration.  The third annual banquet of St. Andrew's Society was held at the Imperial  hotel on Saturday night. The attendance  was small.  Richard Plowman of Rossland, managing director of the Winnipeg Mines,  Limited, is again visiting the Winnipeg mine.

The annual message of  president Roosevelt will not be received  until Tuesday and on that account the  session of Monday will bo brief. It is  not   now   expected   that  anything  will  be done on  that day  beyond  tbe announcement   of   tlie   death   of   senator  Kyle,   following  which   the  senate,   in  accordance  with   custom,  will   adjourn  for the day.

RICHMOND, Quebec, December 1.���  Lord Aylmer, who had been ill for some  months, died at 6:30. Friday, night.  WASHINGTON,   December   1���Members of the Schley court' of inquiry deny  that they havo reached any conclusion  or that auy report has ben prepared for  submission to the secretary ofthe navy.  While none of the officers on the board  will discuss the matter, it is confidently,  predicted that the finding will he a vindication of admiral Schley. It is net expected that the court will, be able to  report for thirty days from this time.  The court has been occupied up to thq  present time In making a digest of the  testimony. Admiral Dewey and his col- '  leagues have discussed the main,points       ��  of the evidence, but much remains to"  be.   considered    before    a    finding    is   -  reached.  All the sessions of the .court have ' -  been held behind closed doors", and -  greater secrecy has' been' maintained <  than in any' similar proceedings - ever -  held before in Washington. The mem-- O  bers of the court have agreed that they, -  will not discuss the case in any.of its  phases except during- the executive^ses- ��� ���  sion. Enough has been learned to justify the statement that'admiral'.Dewey  will hesitate before sighing any-finding which will in any way be construed  as a censure of admiraL Schley.

Dr. Mitsukuri, who is in Chicago  o'n his way   home from Europe, said today:  "In writing the. history it will be my  purpose to accord to the United States?  full credit for tho regeneration of Japan.

Why give private parties a  portion of this land and millions of  money besides to build that which the  people can build themselves? Premier  Duusmuir's railway policy has one  merit. It does not give away a dollar  without a fair return in the way of  interest, and the money advanced is  a first mortgage on the railway built  through its aid. While such a policy is  a step towards government" ownership,  yet how was it received by men like  Smith Curtis, M.P.P., of. Rossland, who  have been preaching government ownership of railways? Why, it was openly  condemned, and those who favored it  wero denounced as betrayers of��� the people's" interests. The people are beginning  to realize that they need expect "little  that will benefit them^-from. any corporation, and that those 'that are now  clamoring for money subsidies, like the  V. V. & E., are in no way different  from those, like the British Columbia  Southern, that. received land subsidies  several years ago   people of St. John. A few months ago  a police magistrate of Rossland imposed  a jail sentence at hard labor on two  residents of that town for an alleged  breach of the laws of Canada. On their  release they were given a banquet by  thoir friends. The St. John editor may  have been wrong and the two Rossland  men may have been wrong, but the people of St. John and the people of Rossland did not think so, and they had the  courage of their convictions. If judges  and police magistrates would have the  respect of the people, they must first  show that their judgments are not the  result of partisan bias or personal malice. .  ^he contest for the control of the  municipal government of Nelson for  1S02 is now on. The forces are already  arrayed. It is the West Kootenay  Power & Light Company, led by mayor  Fletcher and alderman Selous and road  tax collector Waterman, against those/  who believe that Nelson is able to take  care of its own public utilities/Although  the candidates have not yet determined  on, it is generally believed alderman  Selous will be the power company's  candidate for mayor.  ifr:  .jt, ^***~7^K "^^^ ^^���9^_W." ^UU_W.'^^9ll^:^^^___w.^^B_^ "W>**^Hf ^^B^P^^M^*- ^*BP5^ j***^���^ ^MO^aro j^pw      WH     ' &k\____0 ^_\\_\__*0^________0 &K_\___0m_M_____0  ^K-f*'0*0'00-00'00'00'00- 00-00-00'00*00-007^2-00*0&**0 rjf} ^Sz*^Sz*^Z'^:^SY*  G�� *000,'0?0��� 00.^0 * 000 *00'.00  m  ������-..

It  is  a.,trille  late  to  raise  an  outcry  .  after the deed has been done. Many of  the   newspapers   now   howling   because  millions   of  acres   of   land   have   been  granted  to aid  in  the  construction  of  railways favor the granting of millions  of dollars in money to aid in the construction   of, a  railway   from. Midway,  in the Boundary country, to a point on  Fraser  river,   near   New   Westminster.  They not only favor the giving,away  of millions in money, but they-demand  that the subsidy shall be given to one  company, and that a company controlled  by James J.  Hill  of St.  Paul,  Minnesota.   Why   are   these   newspapers   not  consistent? If it was wrong to grant;land  to aidsjn the construction .of railways  that since  their construction have become part of the Canadian Pacific railway system, will it not be equally wrong  to grant money to aid in the construction  of railways that when completed  will be a part of the Great Northern  system? Is not the policy of subsidizing companies to aid  in the construction  of railways  wholly and radically  wrong? If railways are needed to. open  up undeveloped sections of the province,  and   their  building  cannot  he  secured  through the investment of private capital, why is the work Not undertaken by  the  goyernment?  Is  not the credit of  British   Columbia  as   good  as  that  of  private   individuals?   British   Columbia  Jhas 250,000,000 acres of land that have  not l>een alienated. Why not use a por-  Tho policy of class hatred that has  held sway in Nelson for three years is  beginning to have its. effect. Men who  believe that men should be-judged oii  their   merits   are  beginning  to  realize  that there are too many snobs ana toadies in Nelson, and that these, snobs and  toadies must be made uiKe a back seatf*  Business men who have done much and  are doing much to keep Nelson to;the  front have been slighted" and belittled  by^ class who imagine  that because  they  were  born  in  a  certain   locality  'across   the   Atlantic   they- are   better  than their neighbors who were born on  this side of the Atlantic/This class have  had    control   of   business   and   semi-  cocial organizations, but now they realize   that   "the   people   must)   pull   together" in order to advance the interests  of the town.  Men have been repeatedly "turned^down-in���business-and  semi-social    organizations    during   the  last  three  years  because  they  do  not  happen to hold the same views on all  questions as do a few. self-constituted  leaders of a set .hailing from across the  "sea. This set have had their day, with  the   result  that, ail   the   organizations  they control are dying of dry rot. Let  them die; the sooner the. end comes the  bettor.  Then let the men who believe  that  one  man  is  as  good  as  another  put their shoulders to the wheel, and  start  organizations   (business,  athletic,  and social) whose rule3 ahd regulations  will not contain clauses as to ancestry  and place of birth. Elect oflicers to manage them who have brains and not merely an affectation of pronunciation, and  the chances are Nelson within a year-  will again take the rank she once held  as the foremost town in the interior of  British Columbia.  Last spring the people of Fernie were  up in arms against The Tribune because  it insisted that a clause should be inserted in the Crow's Nest Southern railway charter that would insure smelters  in British Columbia a supply, of coal  and coke from the coal mines and coke  ovens at Fernie in preference to smelters in the United States. It is admitted  now that the position taken by The Tribune on that question was the right  one. The people of Fernie believe the  Crow's Nest Southern railway and the  coal company which it controls are endeavoring to destroy the business and  property interests of that town, and  The Tribune is asked to help the people  in their fight. The Tribune has always  been found on the side of the people,  and always will be as long as it is  edited by the men who now edit it.  Some years ago an editor of St. John,  Followed by Many.  The necessity of .keeping in fashion  has become so general in these days,  that almost everyone is more or less  concerned, though the origins of many  of the customs, we follow so rigorously  are as eccentric as they are incomprehensible.  A- gate post, standing in front of a  house, be it of wood or of stone, usually has a ball at the head, and probably  not one person in a thousand knows the  reason why. It is nothing -more than  the survival ofthe barbaric fad of our  forebears, who hung .over their gates  the heads of their enemies killed in  combat. All London's' public bridges  and. gates were. also - adorned with .the  .heads of criminals, and rather tuan let  the custom die out altogether we have  constituted balls of wood or stone for  human heads.  Many men wear spats, not so much  for comfort's sake as because it is the.  fashion. The Highland regiments ori;  ginated this practice as a distinction iri  dress, and during the Indian Mutiny  these troops became so popular in this  country through their bravery at Luckr  now and elsewhere that people sought  to imitate their dress. Children were  clothed in Highland costume, a custom  that is still in vogue, and city men,  unable to. garb themselves in the same  manner without appearing ludicrous,  thus started a. fashion that, has since  beconuMiniversal.  A man wears two buttons at the back  of his coat, though they are not of the  slightest use and cause people to wonder why" they are placed there. This  fashion dates from the time when all  men carried swords, and our ancestors  required these buttons to rest their  swords upon. In this way a city man in  .up-to-date attire tries to keep green a^  fashion which is two centuries old,  though, curiously enough, the dress  he dons for a friendly bout with the  foils has no buttons at the back.  Blue spectacles are still worn, though  had it not been for sir Ralph Abercrom-  bie and his fine work in Egypt in .1801  they would probably he unknown. That  great soldier had spectacles made of  blue glass for his men to wear as a  protection against ophthalmia caused by  the glare of the desert sands, and after  his victory at Alexandria the fashion of  wearing., blue glasses became popular  throughout the country, and still exists  in a modified degree.  Successful novels have more than  once founded new fashions. The Dolly  Varden hat had a great vogue after it  was designed by Dickens for the heroine  of "Barnaby Rudge." The Pamela hat  likewise took its name from the demure  heroine of a popular novel published  some years ago, it being specially designed by the writer to further illustrate the sobriety of Pamela, though at  the time he was doubtless aware that  he was founding a new fashion in female head gear.  In 1880 all ladies dressed in white to.  be in fashion, little knowing that  "Ouida" was entirely responsible for  the absence of color that season. Her  famous novel, "Moths," had just been  published, wherein Vera, the heroine,  is described as having an eccentric fad  for dressing, in white.  The turned-down collar which every  year becomes more fasniohable owes its  origin entirely to a play. When Mr.  Pinero's ��� fine '��� work, "The Squire," was  produced, a_ladies' collar was designed  for Mrs. Kendal to wear as Kate Verity,  the heroine. The shape became popular  with both sexes, and is now perhaps  more than  ever worn.  Thirty years ago a craze-sprung up  for carrying loaded canes. Manufacturers found their stocks exhausted as fast  as they were made, but the purchasers  were almost entirely ignorant, of: the  fact that they were following a fashion  originated by a crime. William Gunter,  a jeweler's assistant, was murdered and  robbed of a quantity of jewels he was  carrying by two men in the outskirts  of Birmingham, England. But he happened to have in his hand a loaded cane,  with which he struck one of his assailants so severely that the man died, and  We will offer our complete stock of Furs at prices never before equalled in this city.

MARVELS OF ROYAL GEMS  ��6,000 in Pearls in Tobacco Tin.  At a timo when millions of men are  stuggling their hardest for the doubtful privilege of keeping themselves alive  it seems difficult to realize that jewels  and gold whose value is counted in hundreds of millions of pounds should be  lying hidden in royal treasure-houses,  untouched and seen only by a privileged  and curious few.  Those who have been privileged to  gaze on the wonders of the shah's treasure-house tell astonishing stories of  wealth which is indeed beyond tho  dreams of avarice, and which might  well form a climax to une marvels of  the Arabian Nights' tales; of diamonds  and rubies, emeralds and sapphires, so  countless that they might literally be  , measured by the peck; of shields, hel-  ' mets, and armor thickly incrusted with  priceless gems, and sword-scabbards  which it pains the eye to look on, so  dazzling aro the jewels which sheath  them.  One of these scabbards is completely  covered with diamonds, the smallest of  which is as large as a finger nail. Vessels of solid gold, so large that only a  strong man could lilt one of them,  crowns blazing with every color of thc  rainbow, chains of gold and rare precious stones, enamels of matchless  beauty, lie scattered about in careless  profusion; trays are heaped to overflowing with sapphires and pearls, many  of which are worth tens ol tnousands  of pounds. ���  A glass case, two feet long and a foot  and a half in width and heignt; is more  than half filled with thousands of pearls  perfect in shape and'luster. By its side  is a globe of gold, twenty inches in diameter, with seas of emeralds and continents of rubies and diamonds to the  number of 50,000, and each stone specially chosen for its purity and" beauty.  The weight of this globe is three-quarter of a hundredweight, and its value  ��1,000,000 sterling.  Among the countless treasures of the'  shah are a flawless uncut, ruby said to  be as large as a hen's egg and of a value  which no one has ventured to estimate;  ' a torquoise as long as a man's finger;  and a belt a foot wide which is so closely set with many-hucd precious stones  that it is one unbroken blaze of diamonds and emeralds, pearls and rubies.  Of all the native princes of India the  Gaekwar of Baroda is the richest in  gold and jewels, a mere catalogue of  which would fill some of the world's  richest millionaires with despair. One  of his most interesting, mough .by no  means most valuable, possessions is a  carpet, 10 feet long and six. feet in  width, composed entirely of a groundwork of exquisite pearls on which is  traced a design in diamonds. This carpet, which certainly has no rival in the  world, is said to bo worth ��300,000, or  ��5000 a square foot.. _           Of much greater value than this carpet  of gems is a matchless collar, consisting  of five rows of diamonds and two of  emeralds, the stones being of graduated  sizes from that of a walnut to the size  of a pea; from this collar of 700 of the  most perfect stones in existence hangs  as a pendant the famous "Star of the  South" diamond, ono of --io most mag-  nificiont diamonds the world has ever  seen.  The czar of Russia has a treasure-  house in each of his many palaces, any  ono of which might well satisfy the ambition of any monarch in thc variety  and value of its contents. Two crowns  alone are valued at ��3,000,000; and the  jewels in the Winter Palace, whicli include many of the choicest gems in the  world, are valued at many millions  more.  The treasures of the Kremlin are said,  on authority, to be worth over ��100,-  000,000; and the gold on the walls of  the palace of xsarskoye Selo, with its  walls and ceilings of amber, tortoise-  shell, ivory, and mother-of-pearl, has  been valued at nearly a quarter of a  million pounds.  But it is doubtful whether the czar's  wonders of gold and jewels can rival  those of the sultan, the accumulations  of centuries of predecessors. The sultan is as careless of his treasures as  the shah, and the room in which they  are kept has rather the appearance of a  lumber-room than a treasury of countless millions. But no disorder can conceal the richness and splendor of gold  vessels filled with aiamonds and sapphires, rubies and emeralds; of suits  of armor, crowns, sword-scabbards,  chains and rings blazing with gems;  although, as :a traveler recently declared, "One cannot fail to gasp with  amazement at the spectacle of hundreds  of beautiful pearls worth probably ��00,-  000 contained in an old tobacco tin."  MEMCBI33 OF GREAT MUSICIAN?  The late sir Charles Halle had a phenomenal memory.   Wilhelm Kuhe, in his  "Musical Recollections," relates that he  was able to sit down and, at a monent's  notice, play any composition of Bach  Beethoven  or  Chopin.   On  more  than'  one occasion, also, he played from memory  during a   cycle   performance   thr j  ���whole of Beethoven's thirty-two sonatas J  alternately, with  the  forty-eight  pre-J  THE CANADIAN  BANK OF COMMERCE  WITH WHICH IS AMATX3AMATKD  THE  BANK OF  BRITISH COLUMBIA.

Dr. Hans Richter, whose world-wide  fame as a conductor is alone able to  fill the largest concert-hall, affords another example of wonderful memonic  power. Not only is he thoroughly proficient on almost any instrument, but  his acquaintance with the masters  whose works he conducts is so complete  and exhaustive that, were their entire  scores lost, he would be able to recover  them whole from the depths of his marvelous memory.  Equally remarkable are the performances recorded of Rubinstein, the celebrated' pianist. During * one season  alone he played without once referring  to the score over 1000 compositions, a  feat of magnitude of which may be  grasped when one considers that they  contained nearly 5,000,000 notes. Pad-  erewski's memory also is abnormal, a  gift which he likewise displays in private lfe, for, like our king, he never forgets a name or face.  To these names that of Hans von  Bulow, as eminent as a conductor as he  is as a pianist, must be added. He knew  all the Wagner music-dramas by heart,  and often conducted long concert programmes in their entirety without the  score. On one occasion, while *- on a  railway journey, he read through for  the first time the score of a concert by  Saint-Saens, and the same evening gave,  a brilliant rendering of it from memory.  Once during a discussion upon musical feats Mascagni, the composer of  "Cavalleria Rusticana," offered to play  from memory any work of six chosen  composers. Doubting his ability to fulfil his boast, those present decided to  put him to the test. The least-known  works by the given masters were selected, but Mascagni was never for a  moment at fault, and came out of the  ordeal with flying colors.  Campaini, a singer too soon lost to  the English stage, -was a remarkably  quick study, and, what is more, could  rely upon his recollection for every  role that he had once learnt. i-Although  he had not played the part of Don Ot-  tavio in "Don Giovanni" for over ten  years he, at a moment's notice, gal-  antly stepped into the breach caused by  the sudden and unexpected absence of  a brother artist, and, trusting entirely.-  to his retentive memory, sang the music  as correctly, and as brilliantly as he had  done a decade since when just fresh  from,study, and rehearsal.  How retentive was Liszt's memory for  small as well as for great things connected with his beloved art is well  exemplified by the following anecdote:  In his younger days especially his goodnature made him a pray to bores. On  one occasion one of this genus inflicted  upon him a tedious orchestral work of  his own composition. Liszt heard it  with polite indifference, and at its conclusion dismissed -its composer, as he  hoped, forever. But such was not to  be, for he turned up two weeks later,  and wth tears in his eyes told the master that his beloved composition had  boen lost acci'dently. Liszt, struck by his  evidently sincere regret, told him to be  of good cheer and to call on the mor-  I'ow._This he did, when there was hand-  e"d to lTinT"the~scofe_"bf"the_lost_workT  which the kind-hearted master had  written out from memory.  op  o_a._n*_a.:d.a.  INDIVIDUALITIES,  General Frederick Funston has completely recovered from the operation  performed on him about a month ago  for appendicitis, and is said to drive  daily on the Luneta, at Manila.  Mrs. Humphry Ward is a mistress of  Spanish, French, Italian and German.  Her knowledge of Spanish literature is  such that when only eighteen she was  asked to adjudicate in a Spanish essay  competition. Mrs. Ward's girlhood was  spent at Oxford, where, almost every  day she was to be found studying in  the splendid Bodleian library.  Mrs. Baden-Powell, mother of the  hero of Mafeking, is said tp be a remarkable woman. As a girl she astonished her teacher by her aptitude for  mathematics, and at the age of ten so  fond was she of astronomy that she  used to creep out at night through the  garden to her father's observatory to  work at the telescope. She became an  accomplished linguist and translated  foreign books for her father's reference.  Edison; when he is deeply absorbed in  .work, consumes about twenty cigars a  day; when he is less active mentally,  about ten. They are always strong  cigars. The inventor says that this  excessive smoking has never, so far as  he can discover, done him any harm.  Mis family has been one of smokers,  his grandfather, who lived to be 103,  having been an inveterate smoker and  chewer of tobacco as well.  Li Hung Chang, the late viceroy of  China, was generally admitted to be the  richest man in the world. He possessed  an enormous fortune in furs alone, and  he has immense warehouses in Pekin  crammed from top to bottom with rare  ind precious specimens.

"Plow do our women compare  with those of China?" the kaiser asked  Li on his visit to Germany. "I really  cannot tell," was the quiet response, as  he glanced at the ladies present; "we  never see half as much of our women  as you do of yours."  It is said that the Negus of Abyssinia  is running kaiser Wilhelm clo��e in the  variety of his accomplishments. Menelik recently showed to M. Lagarde, the  French envoy, plans which had been  drawn up for the new royal palace at  Addis Ababa, the_ aichitect being no  less a person than the Negus himself.  When the first sewing machine he had  seen arrived in Abyssinia out of order  Menelik looked over it, found out what  the matter was, and repaired the machine with his own hands.  Mme. Albani designs all her own operatic dresses, which cost on an average from $350 to $500. She has a wardrobe for over twenty' operas, some of  which require several different dresses.  In many parts the prima donna is magnificently bejewelled, but her jewelry  has cost her next to nothing. It has  nearly all been given by royalty and  other admirers, who, in recognition of  her genius, have bestowed diamonds  and precious stones upon her to the  value of many thousands of dollars.  Count Leo Lvovich, a son of the great  novelist, recently made his debut as a  playwrigh at the New Theater, in St.  Petersburg, with a play called "Nights  of Felly." It is felt that there is not  much promise of young count Leo's  ultimate success. The son, moreover,  went out of his -way to ridicule his  father, a fact which promptly cooled  any willingness on the part of the audience to afford him a favorable reception. The incoherency of the play was  so absolute that all the passages calculated to bring tears provoked  laughter.  At the close of the run of "Ben Hur,"  in Chicago, last week, it was announced  that the total receipts of the dramatization since its first performance in  New York, two years ago, amounted to  ?1,091,500, of which $100,000 has been  .given to general Lew Wallace in royalties. An English production will be  made at Drury Lane theater, London,  in March, and before that time an Australian production will have been made  at Melbourne. Next September a French  version will be launched in Paris, and  a month later German and Russian  adaptations will be produced at Berlin  and at St. Petersburg.  Mr. Beerbohm Tree has a special liking for dogs. Some years ago, when the  famous actor was playing in "Captain  Swift," he possessed a handsome collie  by the name .of Argus. Argus was fond  of the profession, but disliked sensational scenes. During the run of "Captain Swift',' Argus used to take his place  in the wing and follow his master's  every word and gesture until the suici-  -dal-situation-was-reached.---The-moment  Mr. Tree felt for his pistol Argus would  rush into the darkest corner he could  And, and burying his head between his  paws, listen for the thud of the actor's  fall. After that Argus would crawl  back to meet his master with a howl of  joy at Mr. Tree's return to life.  It is on record that Mme. Melba,  shortly before leaving her native Australia, sang to an audience worth in the  aggregate about $8. So it would seem  that the prophetess, any more than the  prophet, must not expect honor in her  own country���until she has achieved  fame and fortune outside its borders.  An enterprising Australian manager has  asked Mme. Melba on what terms she  would revisit her native land, which  she has not seen for fourteen years. He  was somewhat staggered by the reply���  $2500 per night and all expenses paid.  Mme. Molba's father, Mr. David Mitchell, a retired builder and contractor,  and other relatives are residents of Melbourne, the temporary capital of the  Australian Commonwealth.  The charming opera singer, Emma  Eames (Mrs.' Story),* possesses a diamond which has a pleasant history, and  has become so thoroughly identified  with the soprano as to be called the  "Eames diamond." Several years ago,  while Mme. Eames was singing in Paris  she met an old French nobleman, passionately fond of music. He. and his  wife went often to hear her sing. The  poor old man was in wretched health,  and on his.death shortly afterwards his  wife sent Mrs. Story a diamond asking  her to wear it in memory of one who  greatly admired her voice. The stone  is set rather high on a wire which is  invisible at a short distance, so that  the diamond has the appearance of a  firefly alighting here and there among  the singer's_ curls.  It is said that t.he savings of forty-  five years of active service in the United  States navy have been eaten up by the  expenses of inquiry by which admiral  Schley hopes to clear his record as a  naval officer. Since the final adjournment of the public sessions of the court,  the admiral has been staying at Wash-  'ngton. attempting to extricate himself  from the financial tangle caused by the  'nquiry. He has ended with his accounts, and he finds that every cent  of the twenty thousand dollars -which he  m  to  to  to  to  fl  HEADQUARTERS FOR ALL THAT IS NEW AND NOVEL IN  Diamonds,   Watches   and   Jewelry  INTEGBITT  is the main spring of every successful bussiness.

Financially the admiral  is worse off than he was almost half a  century ago, when1 he'entered the naval  academy as a cadet. Mrs. Schley insists  that the money has been well spent.  Her children agree with her. They say  the clearing away of the cloud placed on  the admiral's naval record will be of  more lasting satisfaction than anything  money could buy. During the inquiry  witnesses were brought from long distances, -stenographers were employed,  and clerks were kept busy. "I can not  say I wish I had It back," said admiral  Schley, "but I do wish that I had the  assurance now that I had a year ago  that my wife would never come to  want." "  On one occasion John Philip Sousa,  by his promptness, was the direct  means of stopping a panic, which might  have had the most disastrous results.  While his band was playing before  twelve thousand people in St. Louis the  electric lights in the hall went out suddenly. People began to move uneasily  in their seats, and some even began to  make a rush'for the_doors. Coolly tapping his baton, Sousa gave.the signal,  and immediately his band began playing "Oh; dear, what can the matter be?"  A tiny ripple of laughter that went  around the audience showed that confidence had partially been, restored.  When the band began to play "Wait  till the clouds roll by" the laughter  deepened into a roar of merriment-that  only ended when the lights were turned  on again.  The conferring of the title of prince  of Wales and earl of Chester on the  duke of Cornwall and York on November 9th, king Eward's sixtieth birthday,  came with peculiar appropriateness  immediately on the return of the duke  from his colonial tour. The title of  prince of Wales was originally borne  by the native"rulersOof that territory,  who governed it as suzerains of the  English crown. The commonly received  story of the transfer of the title to the  heirs of the English kings is that Ed-  _ward_the_ First, when expecting, the  birth of a son, promised the Welsh to  give them a prince "free from any blemish upon his honor, and unable to speak  a word of English," and that queen  Eleanor was then taken to Carnarvon  castle, where her son was born. The  earldom of Chester has, ever since Uie  days of Henry the Fourth, been conferred with the princedom of Wales.  Both titles were conferred on king Edward the Seventh by patent on December Sth, 1841, a month after his birth.  The coat-of-arms of the prince of Wales  bears the "prince of Wales's feathers,"  consisting of three ostrich feathers.  At the base of these is an antique coronet, with the motto, "Ich Dien" (I  serve"). Three feathers were taken by  the Black Prince from the head-dress  of the king of Bohemia, who was slain  at Crecy, and this resulted'in the adoption of the coat-of-arms.

A letter was received in Nelson from  segreant Hislop, who is at present serving with tho South African constabulary. The letter is dated October 19th,  and was written from Halfonteln. It  deals with a number of skirmishes  which have taken place since the engagement at Zuerfontein on July llth,  when a number of Nelson men wero  wounded and the seven-pounders were  captured by the Boers. Since this engagement the constabulary have kept  pretty well up with the Boers and captured small bunches of them at different places. On one of these prisoners  a number of explosive bullets were  found and in order to save his neck  the prisoner agreed to show his captors where the seven-pounder had been  hidden.

FIRE AT THE SILVER KING  Bunkhouse Totally Destroyed.  The large bunkhouse at the "Silver  King mine was burned to the ground  early yesterday morning. The flee was  flrst noticed shortly after 4 o'clock, but  it had gained such headway by this  time that there was no chance for the  men to fight it, and several of the inmates had a close call for their lives  The" bunkhouse was a  building and at the time of the fire was  occupied by close upon 100 men. Just  what the loss will be to the comapny  has not been figured up, but in addition  to the structure itself the loss will run  quantities of stores were laid in a few  weeks ago for the winter's use. The flre  broke out in the drying room in the  basement, and when the door leading to  the drying room was open the rush  of smoke was so dense that it was  found-impossible-to-get-it-closed-again.-  This smoke quickly filled the entire  building and rendered it impossible for  the inmates to save anything. The men  who were living in the building lost  their clothes and valuables, the money  loss of some of the men running up  into hundreds of dollars. There were  -two feet of snow at the mine, which  greatly assisted the men to escape by  jumping from the windows.  Captain Gifford was in Nelson. He  received a��message by telephone to the  effect that the bunkhouse was burning  and saw the reflection of the blaze from  this city. He says the company carried<  about $14,000 insurance upon the bunk-'  house, but just what the loss would be  upon the building and contents he would  not know until an inventory of the contents could be made up. To his mind  the greatest loss which the company  would suffer by reason of the flre was  in the interruption in mining operations. It will take well on to two or  three months before the bunkhouse  could be rebuilt and until it is built the  company will be forced to lay off the  greater number of the men. This will  mean that shipments to the smelter will  be interfered with and when the stock  of ore on hand is treated the copper  furnace at the smelter will most likely  be blown out.  Captain Gifford lost no time yesterday  in getting supplies up to the mine, and  three hours after the bunkhouse was  destroyed he had teams on the road  from Nelson with such supplies as were  urgently required. Work was also  started on a temporary bunkhouse  capable of accommodating forty or  .fifty men.  The flre did not reach any of the  other buildings at the mine. During the  farenoon the miners began to come  down the hill. Many of them were forced  to make the 'trip in their wbrking  clothes. Most of them look for a lay-off  of two months.

LONDON, December 1.���In anticipation of this being the last appearance  in public of Theodore Jackson and  Laura Jackson (Ann Odelia Dis Bar)  before their committal for trial before  the Bailey Saturday morning Marlybone  police court iras packed.   The principal  ing which Mrs. Jackson denounced her  as the murderer of her husband. According to the evidence of Daisy Adams  she left Ohio in 1899 and got mixed up  with the prisoners at Glen Echo, a suburb of Washington. She further testi-  fied"that"the"prisoners"obtainedfrom-her  money under false pretenses and lured  her to New York. She accompanied  them to England, Paris and Cape Town.  Finding that the trend of Daisy Adams'  evidence was unpalatable the prisoner  suddenly shouted: "Your husband died  of poison, didn't he?" "No," replied the  witness. At this point the. male prisoner jumped to his feet. "You are a  murderess," he shouted. Mrs. Jackson  calmed her husband and then continued  to cross-examine Daisy Adams, who denied that she was ever accused of killing her husband. When, later, she was  ���examined by Charles W. Matthews,  senior councillor of the treasury, she  related her own experience with the  prisoners, which resembled incidents  related by the girl'victims. While at  Cape Town the Jacksons' establishment was so notorious that the house  was mobbed. After further testimony  had been made in regard to the prisoners' malpractice they both denounced  -Daisy Adams with shouts of "Liar" and  "Perjurer." The prisoners were committed for trial at the Old Bailey.  Charged "With Leading Bother Band.  PITTSBURG, Kansas, December 1.���  George Lane, his wife, a fourteen-year-  old daughter and an adopted son, eighteen years old, have been arrested here  charged with being the leaders of a band  that has been systematically robbing  merchants of this city for the.past year.  Lane and his wife are prominent in  society and church work. They have a  beautiful home in West Fourth street,  where nearly a thousand dollars worth  of stolen goods was found.. It is charged  that the boy would conceal himself in  a store and be locked in when the store  was closed and then in the night he  would open the rear door, after which  the robbery was easy. The arrest was  caused by the boy being captured in a  store and confessing. Lane is a contracting builder by trade and has always  been considered a respectable citizen.  Anderson when told of the traffic in the  tickets held a consultation with marshal  Palmer and it was decided to have all  the tickets whicli have been issued presented on Monday morning, ��� when  many will be taken up. It is the intention to limit the tickets to the actual  seating capacity of the court room.  Sale  Winnipeg Land Sales.
