 fa-2*agS5-_______^^^  *^J-r  ESTABLISHED  1892  THURSDAY  MORNING,   DECEMBER  5,   1901  DAILY EDITION  In  f*  9  fo  m  li  LABOR INTERESTS  MUST BE ZEALOUSLY PROTECTED.  PRESIDENT ROOSEVELT'S RECOMMENDATION TO CONGRESS  ON THE SUBJECT.  WASHINGTON, December 4.���Following is thc text ol! the portion of  president's Roosevelt's message dealing  with the wage working class, curtailed  in Monday's report to The Tribune:  With the sole exception of the farming  interest, no one matter is of such vital  moment to our whole people as the welfare of the wage workers. If the farmer  " and the wage worker arc well off, it is  absolutely certain that all others will  be well off too. It is therefore a matter of hearty congratulation that on the  whole wages are higher today in the  United States than ever before in our  history, and far higher than in any other  country. The.standard of living is also  higher than ever before. Every effort of  legislator and administrator should be  l. bent .to secure the permanency of this  condition of things and its improvement  wherever possible. Not only must our  labor be protected by the tariff, but it  should also be protected so far as it is  possible from the presence in .this country of any laborers brought, over by contract, or of those who, coming freely, yet  represent a standard of living so depressed that they can undersell our men  ih the labor market and drag them' to  a lower level. I regard it as necessary,  witli this end in view, to re:enact imme-  ���diately the law   excluding   Chinese' laborers  ana  to  strengthen  it wherever  "necessary in order to make its enforce-.  -ment  entirely  effective.  HIGH STANDARD,- SHORT HOURS.  The national government should demand the highest quality of service  from its employees; and in return it  should be a good employer. If possible  legislation should be passed, in connec-  .'- -tion, with the interstate commerce, law,  ��� which will render effective the efforts  ��� ~ of different-states to do.away with the  '-competition of convict contract labor in  the open labor market. So far as practicable under, the conditions of government work, provision snould he made  to render the enforcement of the eight  hour law easy and certain. In all Indus--  tries carried on directly or indirectly  for the United States government women and children should be protected  from excessive hours of labor, from  night work, and from work under unsanitary conditions. The government,  should provide in its contracts that.all  work should be done under "fair" conditions, and in addition to setting a  high standard should uphold it by  proper inspection, extending if necessary -to the sub-contractors. The government should Vforbid^allvnight work  for women arid���:childronf��as-well as excessive overtime'. jFQfetbe^Pistrict bf  Columbia a good factory law should be  passed; and, as a .powerful indirect aid  ==to=such-laws^provision=sholil-i=be=made^  to turn the inhabited alleys, the existence of which is a;reproach to our co.p-  itar city, into minor streets, where the  inhabitants can live. trader conditions  favorable to health and morals.  American wage workers work with  their heads as well as their bands.  Moreover, they take a keen pride in  what thev are doing: so that, independent of the "reward, Mey wish to turn  out a : perfect job. This is the gren^  secret of our success in comnetition with  the labor of foreign countries.  "A MOST VITAL PROBLEM.  The most vital problem with which  this country, and for that matter the  whole civilized world, has to deal, is tho  problem which has for one side the betterment of social conditions, moral and  physical, in large cities, and for another side the effort to deal with that  tangle of far-reaching questions which  we group together when we speak of  "labor." The chief factor in the success  of each man���wage worker, farmer and  capitalist alike���must ever be the sum  total of his own individual qualities and  ���abilities.- Second only to this comes the  power of acting in combination or association with others. Very great good  has been and will be accomplished by  associations or unions of wage workers,  when managed with forethought, and  when they combine insistence upon their  own rights with lawabiding respect for  the rights of others. The display of  these qualities in-\juch bodies as a Pity'  to the nation no less than to the associations themselves. Finally, here must  also in many cases be action by the  government in order to safeguard the  rights and interests of all. Under our  constitution there is much more scone;  for such action by the state and the:  municipality than by the nation. But  on points such as those touched on  above the national government, can act.  When all is said and done, the rule  of brotherhood remains as the indispensable prerequisite to success in the  kind of national life for which we  strive. Each man must work for himself, and unless he so works no outside  help can avoil him; but each man must  remember- also that he is indeed hip  brother's keeper, and that while no man  who refuses to walk can be carried with  advantage to himself or any one else.  yet that each at. times stumbles or halts  pui that each at times needs to have  the helping hand outstretched to him.  To be permanently effective, aid must  always take the form of helping a man  to help himself; and we can all best help  ourselves by joiiMig together in the  work, that is of common interest to all.  POOR IMMIGRATION LAWS.  - Our present immigration laws are unsatisfactory. We need every honest and  etlicient immigrant fitted to become an  American citizen, every immigrant who  comes here to stay, who brings here a  strong body, a stout heart, a good head  and a resolute purpose to do his duty  well in every *way and to bring up his  chirdren as lawabiding and Godfearing  members of the community. But there  should be a comprehensive law enacted  with the object of working a threefold  improvement in our present system.  First, we should aim to exclude absolutely not only all persons who are  known to be believers in anarchistic  principles or members of anarchistic societies, but also all persons who are of  a low moral tendency or of unsavory  reputation. This means that we should  require a more thorough system of inspection abroad and a more'rigid system of examination at our immigration  ports, the former being especially necessary.  *  EDUCATIONAL TESTS  The second object of a proper immigration' law ought-to be to secure by a  careful and not merely perfunctory educational test some intelligent capacity  to appreciate American institutions and  act sanely as American'citizens. .This  would not only keep out all anarchists,  for many of them belong to the intelligent criminal class. But it would do  what is also in point, that is, tend to  decrease the sum of ignorance, so patent in producing the envy, suspicion,  malignant passion, and hatred of order,  out of which anarchistic sentiment inevitably springs. Finally, all persons  should be excluded who are below a  certain standard of economic fitness to  enter our industrial fleld as competitors  with American labor. There should b*e  proper proof of personal capacity to  earn an American living and enough  money to insure a decent start under  American conditions. This would stop  the influx of cheap labor, and the resulting competition which gives rise to  so much of bitterness in American industrial life; and it .would dry-up the  springs of the pestilential social conditions in our* great cities, where anarchist organizations have, their greatest  possibility  of growth. '  Both the educational and economic  tests in a wise immigration law should  be- designed to protect and elevatethe  general body politic and social. A very  close supervision should be,.exercised  over the steamship companies which  mainly, bring over the immigrants, and  they should be held to a strict .accountability for any infraction of the law.  NORWAY MOUNTAIN MINES  And Mine Owners.  H. W. C. Jackson, who is interested  in the development of properties in  the Norway mountain district on the divide between Trail Creek and the-  Grand Forks mining districts, was in  Nelson yesterday. From his knowledge  of the ledges in the district, Mr. Jackson says there are tho makings of a  number of nice little properties there,  but so far there are none wbich niiglii  be considered as; big.:' properties.: The  Norway district is about fifteen miles  from Rossland, and includes all that  portion of the country between the Co-  =lumbia=iuver=and==McRae==cr-eek==\vhich  is the main tributary of Chistina lake.  So far as development work has gone  the principal properties in the district  are those owned by the-Cascade Oold  Mining Company and the Bonanza Gold  Mining Company of Rossland, but in  addition to these there are upwards of  200 prospects upon which -more or" less  work has been done. The ledges in the  district vary in width from a few inches  to ICO feet, but from tli'e work-urn:*" i  narrow ledges are shown to carry good  values, while the wider ones carry no  values at all. Further work upon the  iWider ledges may prove up ore chutes,  but so far this has not yet been accomplished. With respect to the narrow  ledges work done upon them has  proven satisfactory and has resulted in  considerable tonnage. On the Cascnde  property the ledge has been proven to a  depth pi 100 feet, and a pay chute exposed for 25 feet, with a width of two  feet, tho ore in which is said to sample  $24 to the ton in gold and silver.  Thc Rossla id Bonanza Company owns  the adjoining property to the Cascade  and on it a similar chute of ore has  been opened up for a distance of 200  feet. The ledge on this portion of the  property* is only twenty inches wide  and .tiie;ore has a value of ?20 to the  ton in gold and silver. Of the other properties there are five feet of ore exposed on the Independence of an average value of ?10 to the ton, and on the  Christina, it is reported that a foot of  ore has been developed for a depth of  100 feet which samples $100 to the ton.  Mr. Jackson is interested largely in  the Bonanza Company, which induced  him. to take a contract for the building of a wagon road from that.property  to the C. & W. line of railway between  Farron and Coryell, a distance of seven  miles. This road haa now been completed, but it came a few weeks late)  tor the property-owners in the Norway  Mountain district, as smelter rates on  the class of ore produced by them have  advanced considerably in view of the  early completion- of the railway from  Grand Forks to the Republic camp. A  few weeks ago a representative of the  Granby smelter visited the Norway  Mountain district and quoted a rate of  ?3.75 for freight and treatment from the  line of railway, conditional upon the  properties furnishing 500 tons by the  first of the year. This offer the property-  owners were not able to entertain, and  they will now be called upon to pay the  rate of $5.50 per ton for freight and  treatment. A contract for the delivery  of 1000 tons upon this rate has been  signed by the Cascade and Bonanza  companies and shipments upon the same  are now being made.  The visit of Mr. Jackson to tho city  was in connection with the shipment of  ore. The wagon road to the C. P. R. line  has been completed, bit for facility in  shipping a switch is necessary. Satisfactory arrangements with regard to  this was made by superintendent Dow-  ( nie arid work upon thc construction of  the switch will be commenced at once.  In the two principal companies in the  district Mr. Jackson says there are a  number of Nelson men interested. In  his own company, the Bonanza, captain Troup is one of the principal shareholders, and in the Cascade the stockholders include J. Laing Stocks and  Robert Robertson.  A Dead Hoise Returns to His Stable.  W. C. McLean tells an amusing story  on himself. ��� Night before last one of his  horses took sick, and after caring for  it until, midnight, he told his teamster  to take the horse up to the city's du.no-  ing ground ^and leave him there,'as it  would save hauling him in the morning.  The teamster did as- directed, and left  the horse for dead on the hillside back  of the smelter. Yesterday morning the  foreman was directed to take-apick and  shovel and go up and bury the horse;  and W. A. McLean went along to see  ���that the job was done according to  Hoyle. Arrived on the ground, they began looking for the dead horse; but he  was nowhere to be found. Supposing  Chinese had carried the carcass off for  hog feed or for manure, they returned  to town, only to find the dead horse  standing at the stable door. W. C. and  W. A. are both devout Presbyterians  and both good Grits and they 'do not  swear, but they are doing a powerful  of thinking just now.  FIRST SHOT AT ANARCHY  Senator Burrows' Bill.  WASHINGTON, D. C,, December 4 ���  Senator Burrows today introduced a bill  to provide for the exclusion and deportation of. alien Anarchists. The first  section of the bill is as follows: "That  no alien Anarchist shall hereafter be  permitted to land at any port of the  United States or' be admitted into the  United States, but this prohibition shall  not be construed as to apply to political refugees or political offenders other  than Anarchists."  The second section directs the special board of inquiry authorized by the  .immigration laws to make diligent investigation concerning the antecedents  of any alien seeking admittance .into  the United States who is suspected of  being an Anarchist, authorizing - the  board to even go to the extent of examining the person of suspect for marks  indicative of membership in Anarchistic societies.  Section 3 provides ior the return of  persons to their native country who  have secured admission, to tbe United  ���States contrary to law and" who have  afterwards been found to be Anarchists.  The fourth section provides that  when *any alien is convicted of crime  in any United States court and it shall  ^appear^lTom^the^evidence^that-he'is^an"  Anarchist, the presiding judge shall direct a further hearing and if the judge  is satisfied that the convicted alien is  an Anarchist, or .that his remaining in  this country will be a menace to the government or society in general, he may,  in addition-to other punishment, adjudge that the convicted alien after undergoing such*-, punsihment shall be deported at the expense of the United  States to the country from which he  came and if.he returns to the United  states shall be.punished by imprisonment at hard labor for a term not exceeding five years and afterwards again  be deported.  Provision is made for the appointment  of twelve immigration agents at a salary of ?2500 each to make investigations  in foreign countries concerning intended immigrants.  The firth and last section of the bill  provides that "The'.fact that an alien  has declared his intention to become a  citizen of the United 'States shall constitute no bar to,'proceedings against  him under this act."  Champion Property Sold  C. W. Harrington oi Slocan arrived  in Nelson last evening. Mr. Harrington has lately completed a deal upon the  Champion property on Twelve-mile  creek adjoining the V and.M property,  the consideration being ?25,000 cash.  The deal, was put through by Charles  Dempster of Spokane on behalf of some  Detroit people. Nothing beyond surface  work has been done upon the property,  but this has disclosed a two foot vein  of ore which samples $100 in gold and  silver values. As there is very little  work done upon the property it is evident that the purchasers either have a  big thing or nothing.  Reported Resignation of Fill.  NEW YORK, December 4.���The Tribune tomorrow will say: "The statement was made yesterday that James  J. Hill would soon retire from the presidency of the Great Northern Railway  Company, which he has held for many  years, and that he would be succeeded  in office by his eldest son, J. D. Hill,  who a few days ago was elected first  vice-president of the road."  TURNED TURTLE  SHIP NELSON SINKS WITH  ALL ON BOARD.  BARK   HIGHLAND   LIGHT   FOUNDERS OFF CAPE FLATTERY.  STEAMER ASHORE.  ASTORIA, Oregon, December 4.���The  tug Tatoosh, which has just returned  to port reports that ine British'' ship  Nelson, captain Perriam, turned turtle  last night and went to the bottom with  her entire crew. The Nelson left Astoria November 25th. Monday she was  back at the river's mouui and yesterday  was reported to have shifted her cargo.  She had a bad list to starboard and  could go on only one tack. Yesterday  afternoon the tug Tatoosh went out and  picked up "the Nelson, passing a hawser. The tug started for shore, but  owing to the gale it was the intention  of captain'Bale of the Tatoosh-to remain with the ship during the night.  The gale that raged last night was too  severe for the vessel to withstand and  she broke from the-tug and then turned  turtle, sinking at once. In the darkness  it was impossible for the tug to render  assistance to the members of the  crew, who were carried down, and all  perished. The Nelson carried a crew of  28 men all told. She was an old wooden  vessel. Captain George Woods, the bar  pilot, was to have been placed aboard  the ship last night, but the weather was  too rough to permit it. The Nelson carried a cargo of lumber and was consigned to Cape Town, South Africa, by Taylor, Young & Co., this city.  Bark Highland Light Sinks.-  VICTORIA, December 4.���The bark  Highland Light, captain E. H. Gillespie, coal laden from Tacoma for San  Francisco, foundered on November 16th  during a heavy southeast gale in latitude 48:30'north and longitude 128 west,-  80 miles off the Vancouver island coast.  All hands.'were, saved, .being taken off  the" sinking vessel by the 40-ton  schooner Arilla'of Seattle, bound from  Cape Nome to Victoria, which arrived  in the nick of time to save captain Gillespie and his crew of 14 from a grave  in the waters of the North Pacific. It  was on November 16th that the Arilla,  which a kind Providence had drifted  back from Cape Flattery to the scene  of the loss of the Highland Light, was  sighted from the fast sinking bark, and  in answer to captain Gillespie's signals  of distress���his ensign being flying upside down���the schooner stood by and  the crew of the Highland Light went  over to her through the high seas in the  bark's boats. All reached the schooner  in safety, and just in time, for the old  coasting bark was by that time rolling  over, burying her, rails and with her  yards touching. the . seas as she swung  from side to side, now with the water  up to the center of her hatches on the  port side and then on the starboard  sider=It=was-just=in=time=that=her=crew=  was taken off, for had the Arilla not arrived when she did, it seems that the  Highland Light must have foundered  with all on board, ana ner fate would  have been wrapped in that mystery  which covers every vessel whose end is  simply announced as "posted as missing." The bark was leaking from the  time she left Tacoma and getting into  a succession of blows off the Cape, the  water continued to rise in her hold. The  men . remained continually at the  pumps and were exhausted when taken  off and the pumps were just about  played out.  After landing they made themselves  as comfortable as possible in a bunkhouse on the beach awaiting the arrival  of the Queen City, which brought them  to Victoria. The only one who showed  the effects of the exposure is Mr. Henry,  the bark's mate, who is very weak.  Captain Gillespie, explaining why he left  the schooner Arilla, says the schooner's  captain ordered 400 pounds of fresh  meat, also butter, milk, sugar, dried  apples and all necessary provisions to  stock his schooner, for the remainder of  the voyage. Then he asked captain  Gillespie to sign a bill for the same,  which he would present to the United  States consul at Victoria, but the captain refused to sign the bill and ordered  his men ashore, where ;they camped on  the beach. This actiorijdiscomfited captain Crowell of the Arilla somewhat and  he refused to take the provisions which  had been ordered and left them on captain Gillespie's hands. He was, however, obliged to pay for 120 pounds of  meat. Captain Gillespie says he is sorry  he had to ask captain Crowell for assistance, for it seemed to be the idea of  the schooner's master that he would  benefit because of the assistance rendered. Captain CroWell was short of  provisions when he took the men off the  Highland Light, but a considerable  quantity was transferred from the. sinking bark to the schooner.  The schooner Arilla, which arrived  at such an opportune time for the crew  of the Highland Light, had herself a  rough time of it. She left the sound in  June with lumber and coal for Cape  Nome and arrived there in due time.  She started on her return trip on September 20th. She called at Dutch Harbor and sailed again on October 22nd,  her destination being Victoria, calling  at any port  en  route  to  trade.   The  coast of Vancouver Island was first  sighted on November 6th, and since  that time the little vessel has been attempting to enter the straits only to be  blown out to sea again by the heavy  storms which have been prevailing during the month. This was unfortunate  for the crew of the schooner but. very  lucky for the men on the Highland  Light.          '     .   .-_,.  Steamer Driven Ashore.  SEATTLE, December 4.���The steamer  'Clara Brown one of the largest stern  wheelers on the Sound was driven  ashore at Alki point early last evening  during a gale, which raged all night.  In trying to round the point on her  usual trip to Seattle from Tacoma the  steamer became unmanageable and several times was in imminent danger of  foundering. She finally drove upon the  beach half a mile south of the point.  The passengers jumped overboard and  made their way ashore. The gale has  continued all day and the boat has been  badly broken up but will ��� probably be  saved unless the gale becomes worse.  Work for the Federation.  SCRANTON, Pennsylvania, December  4.���Tonight the hotel corridors are  crowded with delegates from all over  the United Stated and Canada campaigning' for and against the various  measures scheduled to come up in the  big convention of the Federation of  Labor" which will open here tomorrow.

THE MESSAGE IN ENGLAND  Coast Local News.  VANCOUVER, December 4.���[Special  to The Tribune.]���The steamer City of  Seattle arrived this evening from the  North with the first "mushers" over the  ice from Dawson. They came through  in fourteen days, and report the river  open in places and the recent floods  subsiding. The steamer Discovery, which  Newspaper Comment.  LONDON, December 4.���President  Roosevelt's message to congress hold,  first place in the afternoon papers here  today. The comment on it, however, differs little from that of the morning  papers. Strong, general approval of the  pronouncement which, as the St. James  Gazette says, "Strikes notes of conscious  strength and assurance" is the prevail-  1 ing tone of the editorials.  "The spirit of the declaration for  Monroeism will cause u flutter in Europe," says the Westminster Gazette,  which continues: "If the kaiser is really of the opinion, as alleged, that 'the  "AffTeri'can- p"eril'~is~ the-question-of _the~  future for Europe, he will find confirmation in the message. He will envy  secretary Gage's surplus of ��15,000,000  available for building iron-clads or  other purposes, for the American doctrine backed by the American surplus  means that many European ambitions  in South America are foredoomed to  failure. We do not doubt that it is the  policy of this country if called upon to  make a choice to stand by the United  States in defense of the doctrine. We  are also an American power and it was  we who first suggested the idea." After  noting that South America, the only  outlet for the surplus population of Europe, is largely in the possession of the  corrupt Spanish, over whom the I'nltnd  States throws its aegis without guaranteeing good government, the Westminster Gazette concludes: "It is not easy  to affirm that it is in the interests of  mankind, and when the United States,  after warning Europe not to enter America, proceeds itself to step out from  tt.e American continent even a theoretical defense is difficult. The situation  has the germs of a gigantic controversy  in the future."  Forming Irish Leagues.  NEW YORK, December 4.���About 150  delegates from* all parts of the United  States held a meeting at the Hoffman  House today to form an auxiliary  branch of the Irish League, the successor of the old Land League of Parnell's  time. Branch leagues are to be formed  to extend over the entire United States.  Thc meeting was called by John Redmond, M. P., Thomas O'Donnell, M. P.,  and Patrick McHugh and was presided  over by Michael Reading. Redmond,  who made the flrst speech, outlined the  Irish cause as it is today and the necessity of crystallizing the sentiment, and  views he had obtained while on his  present tour through America. After  Mr. Redmond came Mr. McHugh and  Mr. O'Donnell, who made speeches along  the same lines. Mr. Redmond sails for  Ireland on the Oceanic next week.  PARIS, December 4.���William K.  Vanderbilt was today condemned in a  French court to pay 1000 francs damages, as a result of a collision between  his automobile and a dog cart at Beau-  vllle last year.  PARIS, December 4.���The recent re-<,  vival of interest in the Dreyfus affair  has created several incidents which do  not affect-the question of the innocence  of Dreyfus, but throw interesting light  on the subsequent relations of Dreyfus,  Reinach,  Labor!,   Picquart   and   other f  Dreyfusards.   Reinach's  withdrawal  of  his brief from maitre Labori in the suit  brought against   the  former   by  Mme.  Henry was the flrst development which  drew attention to the rupture between  them.    Labori at the bdine time published an article in the Grand Review,  which he edits, on the political situa- -  tion, in which he pointed out that th�� -  Dreyfus affair was closed by   the' fact"  that Dreyfus had accepted a pardon. In _  acquiescing to this settlement and in ac-"  cepting amnesty, Labori considered that .*  Dreyfus'-friends had removed the question from a high moral plane into one  of pure personality and that the Dreyfus question had ceased to be human  and universal.    Labori > thinks that the  experience of Dreyfus will perhaps entitle him to despise men's justice, but  he adds that he is satisfied with the  judgment of   his own   conscience   and -  without studying the Interests of others \  he-can prefer freedom to legal honor.r   j  The Nationalist Echo de Paris, published an interview   with   a   friend'ot  Reinach and of the Dreyius family who  said that Reinach withdrew the brief  because his friend Comely, who repres-'  ented his views, had been,removed from'  the position of political leader writer on  Labori's Review.   The Informant of the  interviewer   also   asserted   that  Labori  was furious because Dreyfus did not remain in prison and.'from there continue  to prosecute the work of his rehabilitation.   Continuing, the informant of the  interviewer said Picquart was led as- ���  tray by Labori in withdrawing his appeal to the council of state and in re-r *  fusing to re-enter the army even if the  decision was in his favor.' "The news- *���.  paper's   informant   then .added:     "We-;  .don't comprehend Picquart's attitude or  "his  anti-Semitism, which is notorious.  Dreyfus, when he was released, wrote  to him expressing warm thanks for his  devotion and asked for an interview to  enable him to express his thanks personally.   Picquart sent a cool reply, say- ."  ing that he would let him know when"  he could receive him, and Dreyfus has  heard nothing from him since."  These statements caused interviewers ��  to flock to the -residences of Labori and  Reinach to seek further statements, but  they both refused to discuss it, Reinach  alone remarking that, for his part, the  Dreyfus affair was closed.  Labori today breaks silence in an article published by the Journal, the first  of a series which he announces, entitled "My Explanations." What he says  today is not of the first importance, but  it-is-cvidently-a_prelude_to interesting���  revelations regarding his relations with  Dreyfus and Reinach. He says that he  ceased to be counsel for Dreyfus a yejr  3go, at the request of the Dreyfus family, and that in view of divergence of  opinion as to the conduct of the Drey-  tus trial and the subsequent amnesty  question, he asked Reinach in October,  1899, to allow him to relinquish his  briefs in the Henry and other cases, ���  but Reinach appealed to his devotioi,  pointing out the grave effects of a public separation hetwen them. Labor!  says that win tever Reinach's real motives were he was obliged to accept this  explanation. Labori concludes with  saying that he has endured the calumnies of his adversaries for years past,  but allow himself to be calumniated  by clients or friends of clients, as in the  Echo de Paris article, which he knows  came through an authorized informant,  is too much to expect from him. Ho will  reply thereto in the next article. In a  footnote Labori alludes to thc Libre Parole interview. He does not deny the is-  sortions made, but says he will explain  the matter later. Another interesting incident has arisen in the placing on th��  retired list major Carriere. who was inspector at the Rennes courlmartial. In  an interview wilh the major just published he was asked whether he desired  thp post of magistrate and he leplied:  "What could I get from the minister of  justice? Those people hate me."  The Duel Story Revived.  AMSTERDAM, December 4.���In spite  of official denials, investigations show  that there is substantial foundation for  the story of a duel having been fought  betwen prince Henry of the Netherlands, husband of queen Wilhemina,  and major Von Tots, the queen's aide  de camp. It appears that at a dinner at  Hetoo her majesty was hurt by some  inattention on the part of the prince  and she spoke to him sharply. Princa  Henry retorted offensively, whereupon  major Von Tots made a remark upon  the impropriety of the prince consort's  conduct. A quarrel followed between the  prince and thc aide de camp and a duel  with swords was fought after dinner.  Von Tots was wounded. He has since  ���removed to Utrecht, to be operated  upon. . .

It .was   evidently   sent  out by the gang who are still lamenting  over the defeat of the late-lamented bylaw.   The   telegram   is set  in   double-  column measure with a big scare head,  entitled    "Nelson    People    May    Soon  Walk."   As, 90 per cent of the people of  Nelson have heen walking since taking  up their residence here, being forced to  continue to do so will surely not bring  everlasting   "disaster" to   the   City   of  Nelson.    The Province telegram reads:  " Matters   have   reached   their   present  " crucial point owing to the refusal of  " the City of Nelson to allow the tram-  " way company to supply the city with  " light, although the civic electric plant  " is totally out of date, and well-nigh  " useless."   The City of Nelson owns its  own  electric lighting plant,  as it, does  its own water system.   Civic ownership  of an electric lighting system does not  mean partnership with private corporations   like   the   tramway   company,   a  company incorporated  to  carry people  from one part of the town to another.  .The tramway company has no franchise  to sell power within the city limits, and  even if it had it has no power to sell to  anyone.    It has contracted to take 150  horse-power   from  the West-Kootenay  Power & Light Company, the power to  be used in operating its street cars only.  Nearly   two   years   ago   (in   January,  1900), the then mayor of Nelson (John  Houston) offered to take any power the  tramway company were paying for and  not using, and pay the same price for  it as the tramway company was paying,  Jjut he  y��?s  told  the  West Kootenay  Power & light Company would sot al  low the tramway company to enter into  any such an arrangement. Had that  arrangement been made it would have  saved the tramway company ' $5000 a  year. The only arrangement that the  power company would allow the  tramway compaiy to enter into  with the city was one by which they  (the tramway company) would be allowed to supply-light direct to consumers. Later, on in 1900, a proposition was  made to the'city by the tramway company to light the streets with arc lamps  at a price that would be equal to $10  per horse-power per month". This proposition was rejected by 'the city council. This year the tramway company  and the West Kootenay Power & Light  Company' have been 'more successful in  "working" the city council. They  "worked" the council so successfully  that an arrangement ���' was reached  whereby the West Kootenay Power &  Light Company was to furnish the city  with power for its entire'electric lighting system on a basis of 45 per cent of  the gross earnings. (Yet the city has 300  horse-power effective 'installed in its  own power station). The city solicitor  gave it as his opinion that the proposed  agreement was illegal and that it could  not be entered into. Another'agreement  was then made to purchase power direct from the West Kootenay Power &  Light Company, and mat agreement  was submitted to the property-owners  for their approval. It was defeated by  a vote of 150 to 207. It would be  strange, indeed, if the tramway is a  paying venture. The men who put. their  money into like enterprises in Spokane  and Seattle and Victoria in. the early  days all wish they hadn't, but none of  them begged their respective cities to  make good their losses, and why should  the city of Nelson, a city of 5000 population, make good the losses of its local  tramway company; more especially  when its managers have joined forces^  with the West Kootenay Power & Light  Company in an attempt to render valueless an asset that has cost the city $70,-  000, and which is today earning $1000  a month over and above all expenses?  If Nelson is to increase in population,  we must show we liave advantages that  other places have not got. The location  of Nelson is a good one, but the world  is full of good locations for towns.  People cannot live off vacant lots; they  must have something more substantial.  If we can show the manufacturer that  ho can make his wares to as good advantage in Nelson as anywhere else in  the province, he will consider our claims  before deciding on a location. If we can  show thc wholesale dealer in merchandise that he can distribute his goods to  better advantage from Nelson than from  Vancouver or Victoria, he will more  than likely consider our claims. One  manufacturer locating here will tend to  cause others to do likewise, just as one  wholesaler causes others to follow him.  Power, light, and water are all factors  in manufacturing, just as transportation facilities are in distributing the  goods of the wholesale merchant. Nelson has unequaled transportation facilities, she has an almost unlimited  supply of water within easy reach, and  she has power going to waste at her  doors. Were the power that is going to  waste developed, the city would be in a  position to offer inducements in the  way of power and llgnt to manufacturers; inducements that no other city  in British Columbia could offer. Is it  worth the effort? The progressive element say it is. The element that is  non-progressive say the risk is too great  to take; that the city would be foolish  to spend $150,000.. in installing a power  plant on Kootenay river, when the  West Kootenay Power & Light Company stands ready to. sell the city power  at $45 a horse-power, per year. The  progressive element contend that the  West Kootenay Power & Light Company will not give anyone special inducements to locate at Nelson, so that  the city cannot hope to advance through  any interest that the -power company  Before he was elected mayor, Frank  Fletcher was of the opinion that the  city had a valuable asset 'in the electric  lighting plant and business, for did he  Inot say so in his printed address to the  I electors? ' He continued   to have   that  '.opinion until the   refinery   proposition  came up for consideration  (in' August  last), for did he not get the council to  pass a by-law -appropriating money to  purchase land for a site for a powerhouse, and did he not do several other  j things that he was asked to do in regard  {to the same matter by the member for  Nelson who'was then in Victoria?   Why  did the consideration   of   the' refinery  | proposition, which was left to a com-  imittee of three, namely, S. S. Fowler,  ���John   Houston,   and   A>rank   Fletcher,  'change his worship's views  as to the  .value   of   the   city's   electric   lighting  j plant and business?   It might be mentioned in this connection that his worship entirely ignored the other members'  jof the   committee   when   the   negotiations were pending   with- the   refinery  i people;   they were not  invited to any  .'of the conferences; they were looked on  !by his worship as sort of fifth wheels  'to his band-wagon.   But from the time  his worship began negotiating for that  refinery his interest in the city's power  plant on Kootenay river began to wane,  until now he has lost all interest in that  scheme.    According to mayor Fletcher,  the city's electric ligiiting plant is no  gcod and is  hot now   earning  a  cent.  Yet there are people in Nelson who believe  the city's' expenditure  of $70,000  on the electric ligiiting plant has been  money well spent, and .they, believe that  the plant is earning money.    The city  has one ofiicial who does not hold office  because of service rendered anyone during an election campaign.   That official  is the city auditor.    Auditor McDermid  received his appointment because he was  known to be an expert accountant, and  he has rendered the city good service  for two years. Why.does not the mayor,  iri an open session of the council, ask  auditor McDermid for an official statement as to the cost of the electric lighting plant, the cost of its maintenance  and operation, and its earning capacity?  Why not let the people have a statement  from an official" who is   entirely   independent of the faction that looks up to  mayor Fletcher as the official mouthpiece of the city?   Dare the mayor do  it?   Dare any of his henchmen in the  council do, it?   If not, then let alderman  Irving and Madden ask for the statement, and see _ if the  mayor   and   his  henchmen will oppose the giving out of  such'a statement  In the United States there are millions of acres of arid lands in the west,  all of which belong to the United States.  These lands are worthless without  "water:-With���water���they���would���be-  among the richest of all the rich areas  of that wonderfully rich country. President Roosevelt believes the general  government should bring water on these  lands, and do it as a public work. This  goes to show that the United States hats  a statesman as president. In British Columbia there are also millions" of acres  of wild land, all of which belong to the  province. These lands are practically  worthless without railway. - facilities.  With railway "facilities they would be  sought after by the prospector, th j  farmer, and the stock raiser. Had British Columbia a statesman at the" head of  her government these railways ' would  be undertaken as public works. But the  nearest approach ��� to statesmanship is  the declaration made by E. V. Bodwell  of Victoria, who aspires to the premiership. He would secure the building of  the needed railways with large cash  subsidies from the provincial treasury  and large grants of land from the public domain. The cash subsidies and the  land grants would help build railways  that when completed would be the.property of private corporations, and not  the property of the people. Is it any  wonder that our province does not. prosper, when the best we can get in the  way of statesmanship is Mr. Bodwell's  railway policy?  The Tribune this .morning prints the  full text of president Roosevelt's message on the labor . question. It should  be read carefully by every working-man  and every business'man ih Kotenay and  Yale.   The Economist, which is edited" by  David Mark Carley, says the people of  Nelson should drop their differences  and work together to secure one end���  the advancement of Nelson.

There is a common cry among the  busy people of this world: "Oil, but I  wish the day were an hour longer!" As  a matter of fact no less an authority  than sir Robert S. Ball, the distinguished English astronomer, declares  that today is longer than yesterday and  yesterday longer than the day before  and U_at ,the> tpwnty-iivo hours wiU  eventually arrive.  More consoling still to those who find  the present twenty-four hour day all too  short is tho reflection that the future  has in store not only the tewnty-flve  hour day, but one of even thirty hoars  a.ud over.  This announcement, startling as it  may appear to some and absurd to  others is based on -.sound scientific  logic. Tracing back farther and farther  ihrough the vista of time, we encounter  days of twenty-throe hours, of twenty-  two hours, of twenty hours, of ten, of  eight, and even of six hours. But this  was long, long ago.  Sir Robert Ball was delivering a lecture in the Lowell Institute course in  Boston, Massachusetts. His subject was  the "Origin of the Earth." In considering thc action of the tides ho show'ed  that they have an influence in slowing  up the earth's motion of rotation. It is  gradual, of course. In fact, it is too  gradual lo be-perceptive'even with the  aid of the most accurate chronometer,'  as the aggregate addition to the day's  length even.a few centuries hence will  not amount to more than a fraction of -  a second.  At-the end of a million years it will  take the earth seventeen minutes longer to revolve once around its own axis  than it. does today. The aggregate of the  loss in 4,000,000 years will be about an  hour, making a twenty-five-hour day.  This line of deduction may be followed  out ad infinitum or until the earth actually ceases to revolve at all.  On the other hand, the day of 4,000,-  000' years ago was about twenty-three  hours long. There is evidence that the  rotation of the earth was once four  times as rapid as now. In other words,  the' day was only six hours long. But  this must have been from 50,000,000 to  300,000,000  years -ago.  The advent of the twenty-five hour  day or even of the day when the present  arrangement of recording time has become inaccurate, may necessitate the  complete reconstruction of watches,  clocks and chronometers, provided that  such things are. still' in use when such  day arrives. The twenty-five hour day  will bq divided into two .halves of  twelve hours and thirty minutes each.  The old fashioned noon hour will be  passed out of date arid the sun will  reach its meridian at 12:30, noon, thirty  minutes behind the present scheduled  time. *���  i==jX!hc=obstacles===wliic]i===confron.t=-ith_u  manufacturer of the twenty-five hour  timepiece may be obviated by adding  two minutes and thirty seconds to the  ' present hour of sixty minutes and maintaining the present standard of twenty-  four hours. We may even���but who can  pretend to tell just what the inhabitants  of this, earth may or may not do 4,000,-  000 years from now?  One thing is reasonably certain, however. Ih case the earth is still inhabited when the twenty-five hour day arrives, some people will be heard to exclaim: "Oh, but I wish the day were an  hour longer!"  Another interesting fact whicli, sir  Richard Ball said, may now be considered established beyond dispute, is  that the earth is gradually dissipating  its heat into space. This heat is moving  out from the center of the earth to the  surface, and the amount there lost  each year would be sufficient to melt a  film of ice covering the earth's surface one-tenth of an inch thick.  This small quantity does not seem  of much moment, but it must be remembered that it is an influence always acting in the same direction, and these influences which act always in the same  direction are the architects of the universe. The geological forces act with  the greatest energy for perhaps hundreds of thousands of years, and. then  they begin, to tear dow*n what they have  built up. These forces may get back near  to where they have begun, but the influences that act always the same way  do accomplish wonders in the millions  of years of time "through which they  work.  If the earth.is losing heat, and has  been losing it, it was formerly hotter  than it is now, and continuing this argument back into the dim age,'we see  it was red hot, white hot and even  molten.  In the days when the earth's rotation  was four times as rapid as now it had  possibly sixteen times more energy  than at present. Energy is never lost,  but it is transformed into heat, and in  its radiation of heat the earth has  parted with so much of its original energy.  Ingenious investigators, one building where the others finished, have  found a means of computing the heat  gguiraleni of tidal action, and the grad-1  ient would be 1 degree for every 2000  feet, so that this cause is inadequate to  account for the SO degrees, which is the  unknown gradient. It will then be understood that the gradient of 80 degrees  is due to internal heat, and.in the past  the earth was hotter, even beyond the  possibility.of surface, and back of that  gases, "in fact, a nebula. It extended out  far -.beyond its present limits; it  touched the other great nebula, the  sun; it was part of it; the same chemical elements composing both.  But whatever the term, the earth is  more rigid than solid steel. It is so rigid  that the shocks.of earthquakes and volcanoes are transmitted' through it  with twice the velocity of passage  through steel. The intense heat of the  center of the earth is strikingly shown  by volcanic eruptions, that of Karatoa,  for example, when every particle of the  solid earth and the surrounding atmosphere tingled in response to the mighty  explosion. Vehement as was this eruption, sending as it did millions of.tons  of the earth's crust high into the air,  it was but a puny effort compared with  the mighty outbursts of the time when  the^ earth was young. It then had vast  quantities of heat to dissipate, and to  these eruptions that of Krakatoa was  but a popgun.  HKAD  OFFICK, TORONTO, ONTABIO.  Branches in Northwest, Territories.

Claims for Coronation Services  NEW YORK, December 4.��� Close  upon sixty claims for services performed at the coronation of king Edward  have been submitted for consideration  to the court of claims, which meets in  the privy council chamber at White  Hall today, says a London dispatch to  the Tribune. Afnong other curious  claims is that of the duke, of Norfolk,  as lord of the workshop, to present a  pair of gloves to the sovereign and to  hold the scepter with the' cross while  the peers do homage. Besides this  =special=claim=the=duke=in-the=right***?of=  the earldom.of Arundel claims tne office of butler at the banquet. Nobody  who was, present at the proceedings of  the last court, which sat in 1838, is now  alive, but precedent, as revealed by. the  records; will be strictly followed. In  virtue of the office of lord chancellor,  lord Halsbury is expected to preside  over the court today.  Great Britain ar.d Menelik.  NEW YORK, December 4.���A letter  from Jibuti, East Africa, is. quoted by  the Paris correspondent of the London  Times and credits Great Britain with  adroitness in her dealings with emperor  Menelik. It says Great. Britain has induced the negus to leave dormant the  frontier question while the South African war lasts, and that Great Britain  intends to settle this question finally in  a manner detrimental to Abyssinia.The  letter asserts that the various British  missions to Abyssinia were designed to  pave the way for the seizure of the vast  territory separating the Egytian Soudan from Uganda Meanwhile, he says,  the Abyssinian Exploration Company  has purchased from the negus for ��85,-  000 the mines of the equatorial provinces. It is asserted that colonel Harrington' skillfully gained   an   excellent  footing, with emperor Menelik.  ..-������,..>'      ��� .  Duke of Hamilton Weds.

DENVER, November 23.���After * as  wild a ride in black, darkness as any"  nian ever took, ^and after jumping 'in*  the dark from the rear of a train going at a tremendous speed, Charles A.  Ambler, a freight conductor on the  Santa Fe railroad, is able to sit up in  bed and tell how it happened. Three of  his ribs are broken, his shoulder is dislocated and his body is one bruise from  the soles of his feet to the top of his  head, yet. he expects to go out again on  his run within a few weeks.  Ambler was. conductor of an extra  freight train composed of twenty-three  ballast-cars loaded "with iron ore, and  one car loaded with bridge timbers.  There were 1607 tons of freight in the  train, and two �� of the heaviest engines  on .the road were necessary to pull.it  up the steep grade toward Palmer Lake.  Just before midnight the train pulled  into a siding caled - Bruce, two miles  this side of the top of the divide, to let  the night passenger train pass. In  starting the train on the main line  again, one of the "knuckles" in a coupling was broken and the train stopped  to have it replaced. It had just cleared  the switch to the main line, when the  coupling broke in front of the eleventh-  car, leaving twenty-one cars of ore,  one of bridge -iron and the caboose in  the^rear.'  All of the crew were forward, where  they had been replacing the broken  knuckle, and Ambler-was alone in the  caboose. His first impulse was to jump  when he felt the train start back down  the hill, and then he ��� remembered another "extra" coming,behind him, and  rushed to the hand-brakes. In almost a  moment the' train was moving at a  rapid rate. The brakes apparently had  no effect in.checking tne speed of the  train. In a mile the great projectile  was shooting down the grade around  sharp curves, and on the ever-increasing grade down���sixty miles an hour.  ��� .-The speed blew,out the. end lights on  the caboose, which led the train, and  Ambler could not keep his lantern lighted for a moment. In absolute darkness  he worked his way back over the cars.  The train was pitching and swaying as  though it would leave the track at every  curve, and to jump across the intervening blackness from* one flat car to another took a high degree of courage.  The loose red hematite "ore, rattling  about in the cars, sent up' a dense cloud  of dust, almost choking the conductor.  Still he-worked his way back, setting the  brakes as he went, but with no checking of the swift motion.  As the train reached Castle Rock Ambler set the last brake on the last.car,  and decided to get off. He was powerless to do anything further to prevent  either a collision or the derailment of  the cars, and it seemed almost certain  that in one way or the other the whole  heavy train would be "piled up," making the instant killing, of any person on  it almost equally certain: :  =*=-The=gondola=-had=a=hahd-rail^only=a=  foot long, and no step with which Ambler might dismount. . He swung himself out and down as far as he could,  so that his foot reached the ground:  But the speed was so great that the  slighest touch of his foot to the ground  tended to throw him back. At last,  just opposite the Castle Rock station,  he let loose and was piled up in a heap  on the 'cinders between the main and  side tracks..  Ambler has no recollection, further  than of when he let go, until he came  to consciousness, perhaps an hour, later,  and saw by the light, that he was near  a station. He then called for help, and  the operator responded. Ambler's injuries wero dressed, and he was sent  to Denver.  By the block system, the extra train  following behind was stopped at Se-  dalia. The runaway was longer than  the Sedalia switch, and so it was necessary to stand the other, train on the  main line, and open both" ends ,vof the  switch, so that tiie runaway could go  around. It was feared that the cars  would jump the track at the switches,  b)ut the whole three men went around  . them without a break, though going  then at fully forty miles an hour.  ? The other train crew heard the rails  singing under the approaching cars,  then saw them swing past with a deafening roar and clouds of dust, with  every break-shoe splitting a shower of  sparks and flames, and in an instant, the  black bulk was gone down the track.  . At Littleton the grade lessens and the,  brakes began to take hold, so that the'  train slowed up and came to a stop in  front of the Littleton depot. If Ambler  had not. set the brakes it would have  probably have been necessary to run it  into the derailing switch, to stop it."  Just as the train drew out at Spruce  and started up the hill conductor Ambler  looked at his watch and found it was  11:57 p. m. When he fell off at Castle  Rock the jar stopped the watch at 12:23  a. m. The distance between the points  is twenty miles. The train had slowed  somewhat when he jumped, but, nevertheless traveled the twenty miles in  twenty-three minutes, or at the rate of  fifty-two miles an hour. At some points  in its journey it is beleived the rate was  nearer eighty miles an hour.  At Larkspur there is a sharp: curve,  and so great was the speed that the operator listened for the  crash of thej  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  DO NOT WAIT UNTIL IT IS TIME TO CUT THE XMAS TREE BEF0EE TOU 0RDEE YOUR  HOLIDAY GOODS AT JACOB DOVER'S, " THE JEWELER."

The flre department nad a couple of  calls yesterday. The first was from a  house on Lake street, in which an electric lamp was permitted to fall upon a  bed and ignite the bed clothes, very little damage being done. The second call  came from the C. P. It. yard in wliich  a car used as living quarters got on flre  through an explosion of a coal oil lamp.  Tho blaze in this case was speedily  brought under subjection although the  flre was outside of the hose limits.  CITY AND DISTRICT,  O. J. Boucher and wife will leave this  evening on the steamer Moyie on a trip  to friends in Ottawa. They expect to be  gone several months.'  A number of prominent mining men  arrived in. the city last evening for the  purpose of attending tne meeting of the  lead producers ot" the district which has  been called for today to consider the  lead situation.  * ,  The collections of the port of Nelson for the past month were $10,109.37,  the value of free imports being $18,654,  and of the dutiable imports $69,496. The  figures show a material increase over  the returns for the corresponding period  of the previous year.  Henry Roy of the London Consolidated Company says his company will  employ upwards of 5<0 men this winter  on the Silver Hill mine as soon as the  tramway is completed, It is thought a  start will be made on the property about  the middle of the present month.  , Tlio case of the Imperial Mines vs.  the ^Valparaiso Mining Company, an adverse action over the title to the ground  contained in the Government mineral  claim in the Goat River mining division :has been postponed until the  "next sitting of the supreme court.  The returns from the port of North-  port for the past week show that there  were exported from the mines and  smelters of - Kootenay via -that point  gold bullion to the value of ��11,214, silver bullion to the value of $21,205, and  silver-lead ore to the value of $9491.  Charles Dundee of the Dundee Mining  Company was in Nelson yesterday. He  had nothing to say with respect to the  deal which has been reported upon the  Dundee beyond the fact that the water  In the property has been pumped out  and that Barney McDonald has com-  -pleted-his-examination-of^the-property.-  The members of the Nelson Operatic  Society are practicing hard for their  performance of the Chimes of Normandy next week. There are rehearsals  every evening this week with a full  dress rehearsal on Monday evening.  The costumes and scenery have arrived  and everything promises a good production of the old time iavorite.  D. W. Moore of the Trail smelter has  returned from St- Paul. He was accompanied by D. C. Johnson of the  Everett smelter, but had nothing to say  with respect to the conference which  took place in that city as bearing upon  the smelting industry of the Kootenays. William Aldridge of the' Trail  smelter went on to Montreal and J. J.  Campbell of the Nelson smelter made a  trip tb New York. r.  There are a number of Nelson men  anxious for service in the new force  which the Dominion government is  about to organize for service in South  Africa. Tom Brown, who served with the  Strathcona Horse, is endeavoring to se-  ���cure a commission in the rcw force,  anc. it is understood tha* Ja k Kraser  and TomVDunn, who also saw service  with th'3 ^Strathcona Horse, are willing  to take'-iheir chances and go out with  the for.ee as privates.if necessary.  : There were but two instruments recorded in the Nelson record office yesterday. One was a bill of sale in which A.  Burgess of Ymir transferred to A. Walr  lace the Barbara mineral claim on Tamarack mountain, and the second was the  recording of an option In which A. J.  Hughes, J. T. Armstrong and N. Riviere gave A. B. Buckworth an option  on the Silver Lake, Union and Montreal mineral claims, located on the  south fork of Porcupine creek, until the  end of February.  Frank Fulmer, who has the bond on  the Beatrice mine in the Lardeau district reports that the tunnel which he  is driving upon the property is now in  a distance of 80 feet and good progress  is being made. As it is estimated that  this tunnel has to be driven for a distance of 500 feet interest in the work so  lax pons upon fhe rate of progress  AT THE JE0TELS.  TREMONT���-A. J.

The Wallace-Miller Company, doing  business at Nelson and Greenwood as  dealers in. men's clothing, has had an  airing in court. The^ company is made  up of J. H. Wallace* and C. E. Miller  of Nelson and P. W. George, who travels  for an eastern wholesale house.  About two years ago Wallace & Miller,  then doing business as a partnership,  induced George ,to join them and form  a limited liability company. They represented, so it is said, that their Nelson  store had made a profit of some $iu,U00  the two previous years. Ueorge joined  them and put in $12,962 into the company. Everything went swimmingly  for a time, but the statement for ther  first year's business did not show that  Mr. George had made any great profit  In his investment, and like all capitalists, under like circumstances, he began  to make inquiries. The inquiries led  him to consult a lawyer, and the lawyer  consulted, no doubt, advised him to  begin' legal proceedings. Legal proceedings were commenced, with the result  that yesterday a settlement" was arrived at. Mr. George gets his original  investment of $12,962 returned to hira,  and, in addition, gets profits amounting to about $5000. As part of what  is coming to him, George takes the stock  of the Wallace-Miller Company ��� at  Greenwood at 80 cents on the dollar,  the remainder is to be paid in cash.  Wallace & Miller are to pay all liabilities of the company and rent George  their store premises at Greenwood for  $75 per month for two years', with the  privilege _of_a_renewal -for-three-years-  longer at the same rental.  David! O, David!  The Nelson Economist, edited by  David Mark Carley; says: "Beyond  doubt, there are a great number of Canadians who are more English than the  English themselves, but only brainless  Canadians can be included in this  class. For the Englishman, Scotchman,  and Irishman, Canadians as a whole  have a regard approaching veneration,  even overlooking their mannerisms  which are the vestige of their early environment; but for the Canadian who  apes their mannerisms, the genuine  pure-blooded Canadian has nothing but  pity and contempt." David Mark Carley  has always admired Frank Fetcher, and  now the reason for his admiration is  known. He admires his worship almost  to the verge of veneration because his  worship is an Englishman and not because he is an expert horse buyer or a  progressive manager of the municipality's business affairs.
