Copper Company of New York. The Rio
Tinto Company hns made All the propositions which it Intends to make, but so
far. has received no Indication of the action the . Amalga.rnp.ted, Copper Company
proposes to ,'take. A feeung prevails that
the  conditions' will  not  ne  altered  In  the
- immediate present. The Pall Mall Gazette
says   that   if   Mr.   Rockefeller   has   really
.thrown down the gauntlet to the Rothschilds, which the paper thinks improbable,
'there can be little doubt.of the Rothschild's
victory. The Pall Mall," Gazette adds: "The
Rio Tinto company is in a position to re-
; gard  with   equanimity  a. further  drop   of
■'■ twenty shillings per ton,1 but not so the
Standard Oil Company,- who have to consider a-;, general smash df the American
market." Rio Tintos fell three-eighths at

night's price.

WASHINGTON, December 13.—The most
prolonged, interesting, and important naval
tribunal ever held ln thl's country came to
a close today, haying 'ofr) open and secret
session lasting three nalunths, short of one
week, when secretary.'Long was handed
the findings of the,cour^'of inquiry which
inquired into the coriducjt of: rear admiral
Schley durlng'the Santiago campaign.,. The
result was a complete surprise. Instead of
one report there we're ,1 two. Beth were
signed by George Dewrey, -- president, and
Sam C. Lemly, as judge-advocate. This'
is a form said to be recognized in all^ courts
of inquiry, the signatures of other Members not being necessnry: but tt js ' ex-'
plained that admiral foewey signed, the.
second report, ^a 'minority'.'' report," .to express his qualification-of or dissent from
the views expressed oj* the court, comprising, besides himself',' admiral* Bghham' and
admiral Ramsey, in the'first report. It is
said at the navy, department that there will
be no further proceedfngsjin'thls celebrated

A meeting of the finance commltte of tho
city council was held last evening when
the request of the city auditor for an increase in his salary was considered. K. B.
McDermid was present and explained to
the members of the committee the work
he had been doing. His request was for' a
salary of $75 per month, but after considerable discussion a compromise was arrived at and it is understood the committee
on Monday 'evening will report In favor of
making the salary $50 instead of $20 permonth. This will make thc remuneration
of the city auditor for the present year
about the same as that voted last year.
The committtee also went over the current accounts.
Santo Pascuzzo of Sirdar Is traveling in
hard luck. On Thursday he was charged by
John Chambrone, also of Sirdar, with using
abusive language. The case was tried at
Creston by Ed Mallandaine, J. P., who imposed a fine of $1 and costs and bound tho
accused over to keep the peace. At the
trial Puscuzzo was accompanied; by his
wife. All the parties took the train back
from Creston, but when thoy reached their
home It is alleged that Chambrone refused
to allow the wife of Pascuzzo to get off
the train. The two .men had a fight, in
which Pascuzzo got considerably the worst
of tt. Chambrone and Mrs. Pascuzzo then
came on together to Nelson, with one of
the Pascuzzo children, leaving a little girl
at the Pascuzzo home in charge of the
father. It looked very much like an elopement, but with that the authorities did
not concern themselves, and the party
would probably have been left to themselves but for the fact that when Pascuzzo
came to his senses he turned the tables on
Chambrone by laying a charge of assault
against him. Upon this charge constable
Wilson of Creston is now on the lookout
for Chambrone, and if he gets him he
will be taken back to Creston to stand hi;,

VANCOUVER, December 13.—[Special to

WASHINGTON, December -13:—The report, of the Schley court of-inquiry was
promulgated by secretary Long "tonight.
There"are two reports. .Admirals iBenham
and 'Ramsey concur;in the first, 'which" is
-signed-by admiral Dewey-also as a matter
of form.* Admiral Dewey makes.'a separate
report," although' he> agt ees' to the findings
of facts' subscribed'to by. the" others."' The
majority report condemns'admiraV Schley
on 13 -points, 'while^admiral- Dewey sustains" him in most particulars. -The 'majority opinion finds in" brief:"''    - .'u     • .'

5. That, he should have' obeyed 'the' department's orders. " '    . -
6. That he should have endeavored to capture  the  Spanish vessels  in  Santiago.   ,
- 7. That he did not do his utmost to destroy the Colon. . ■
8. That  he' caused  the  squadron to lose
distance in the loop of-the Brooklyn.       .  •
.   9. That he  thereby caused  the Texas  to
10. That he did injustice to Hodgson.
11. That his conduct in.the campaign was
characterized by vacilliation, dilatorlness,
and lack of enterprise.
32. That-his official reports on the coal
supply were misleading and inaccurate.
13. That his conduct during the battle
was self-possessed and that he encouraged
in his own person his subordinates.
Admiral Dewey in his report says that
the passage to Cienfuegos was made with
all dispatch; that in view of his coal sup-
_ply,_the bIockade_of__Cienfuegos_was_effec:i_
tive; that- he allowed the Adula to enter
Cienfuegos to get information; that his
passage to Santiago was with as much dispatch as possible, keeping the squadron together; that the blockade off Santiago was
effective; and, finally, that he was the
senior officer off Santiago, in absolute command, and entitled to the credit due for
tho glorious victory, which resulted in the
total  destruction  of  the  Spanish  ships.
The report of the court of inquiry opens
with the statement that the court having
concluded the Investigation, reports Its
proceedings and the testimony taken, with
a full and detailed statement of all facts,
together with its opinion and recommendation in the premises.
The first facts recited are in regard to
the flying squadron under -command of
commodore Schley from Key West on May
19th, 1S.R, under orders to.proceed with utmost dispatch : to Cienfuegos to capture
the enemy off that'-coast, if possible, or to
blockade him and maintain the blockade
as close as possible. The arrival of the
squadron off Cienfuegos on May 22nd Is
cited and the "findings of this point are as
follows: "Commodore Schley-did not proceed with, utmost dispatch oft Cienfuegos
and blockade that port as close as possible." Then thc report relates the incidents which happened during the Cienfuegos blockade, Including the arrival there
of the Dupont with a dispatch from the
commander - in - chief, which stated that
the Spanish squadron was probably at Santiago, and ordered commodore Schley, if
he was satisfied that the Spanish squadron
was not at Cienfuegos, • to "proceed with
all dispatch, but cautiously, to Santiago
do Cuba, and if the enemy is there blockade him in that port." On May 2fith the
squadron stopped about 22 miles to the
southward of tho port of Santiago and
was joined by thc scouts Minneapolis, Yale
and St. Paul. The engines' of the collier
Merrimac were temporarily disabled.
Regarding admiral Schley's reply to the
later and more Imperative order to ascertain if the Spanish squadron was In
Santiago, as all the department's information indicated, in which the admiral said:
"Tt is to be regretted that thc department's
orders cannot be obeyed, earnestly as we
have all striven to that end. I* am forced
to return to Key West via Yucatan Passage for coal. I can ascertain nothing certain concerning the enemy. Was obliged to
send F.agle to Port Antonio, Jamlca, yes
terday as she had only 27 tons of coal on
board. Will leave St. Paul here. Will require'9500 tons of coal at Key West." The
court declares: "That at that date the flying squadron was accompanied by the collier Merrimac, containing 4350 tons of coal.
The amount of coal to completely fill the
coal bunkers of all the vessels of the flying-'
squadron,on the'samo' date was 2760 ton.^
The conditions of the wind, sea and weather from noon on May 2Cth to June 1st were'
favorable for taking coal from a collier at
sea off Santiago de Cuoa."
-The    court     then    finds:    "Commodore
Schley made' no effort to escertain whether
thc ' Spanish  squadron  was  in  the - harbor
of "Santiago. He  loft  said  harbor entirely
unguarded from 6 p.m. of May 26th tb 5 p.
m of May 27th, and guarded' only by "the
scout St. Paul from 5 p. m. of May 27th
until about 6 a. m. of May 28th. The flying
squadron  arrived  off  the  harbor  of  Santiago de Cuba, seven miles south of Moroo
at 6 p. m. of May 28th and.established a
blockade.  Commodore Schley did not proceed with dispatch from Cienfuegos to Santiago de Cuba "
Earlv on May 29th the Cristobal Colon
and other vessels of the Spanish squadron
were discovered at anchor In the harbor
of Santiago about 1200 yards from the entrance. No attempt' was made by commodore Sc hei y on May 29th or 30th to capture
or destroy these Spanish vessels. The court
'then-'goes Into the incident of the firing on
Mav 30th betwtn thc Massachusetts, Iowa,
nnd New Orleans on the' one side, and the
Colon and shore batteries on the other,
and declares "that the ships passed thc
harbor entrance, about 7000 yards distant
from the Morro, firing at the Colon and "the
shore batteries-with, ranges varying from
7000 yards to 8200 yard's and that all'projectiles fell short. Continuing it says. "When
the .hip. had passed to the eastward' of
.the entrance the flagship turned,off shore,
followed in succession by the other ships.
, repassed the -entrance and fired as before,
but with ranges varying from 9000 to-ll.OOO
yards Some of these projectiles fell near
the Colon. The blockade was maintained at
an average distance of about six to, seven
miles-from the harbor entrance during the
day and probably somewhat nearer during
the night." '      _,' v
Coming to the battle' of July 3rd, tho
court finds in part as follows: "The Brooklyn stood toward the Spanish vessels with
'varying helm and fired one shot from her
forward turret at 3500 yards range, which
proved short" and then engaged'with her
port battery. When about 1400 yards distant
•from the leading Spanish ship, the Teresa,
the Brooklyii turned to starboard with her
hard aport,; and continued to so . turn
until she lieaded"to the eastward, parallel
to the course of thc Spanish shlps.The commanding officer" of the" Brooklyn put tha
helm hard aport and almost at the same
instant commodore' Schley gave the ordjr
hard aport.Thc turn^of the Brooklyn was toward the Texas and the Texas stopped and
'backed 'her engines. About the time the
-Brooklyn-began'ih'er turn''to'starboard 'a
conversation'' regarding the proximity of
.the Texas took place between commodore
'.Schley and lieutenant Hodgson. Admiral
Schley caused to be published - in a daily
'newspaper,- a letter addressed to him by
licutneant-c-ommander Hodgson, in which
the latter said: -"The colloquy published
in the New York Sun and alleged to have
taken place between you and mc on the
day of the battle of Santiago on July 3rd,
1898, never' occurred. Admiral Schley did
not have published the other letters of lieutenant-commander Hodgson in regard to
this matter,"
This closes the statement of facts and
the court gives. the following opinion:
"Commodore Schley, in command of the
flying squadron, should have proceeded
with utmost dispatch off Cienfuegos and
should have maintained a close blockade
of that port. Ho should have endeavored
matlon regarding the Spanish squadron by
communicating with the insurgents. Ho
should have proceeded from Cienfuegos to
Santiago with all dispatch, and should
have disposed his vessels with a view of intercepting the enemy in any attempt to
pass the flying squadron."

Two or tho admirals (Benham and Ramsey) find Schley guilty of everything  charged against him, excepting that he  conducted himself like a brave and fearless man during the battle off Santiago in  which the Spanish fleet was destroyed.  One admiral (Dowey) finds that Schley was  not nt fault: that he did all that could  be reasonably expected of him; and that he  was the ranking officer in command during  the battle of Santiago, and that he is entitled to the' credit of winning tho light.  Those who read the evidence given at tho  Inquiry will, no doubt, bo divided in opinion; but the AVest will take Dewey's verdict  as the fairer of the two: Schley of the  Brooklyn an<i Clark of the Oregon won the  battle of Santiago, and won it with a comparatively   small   loss   of  life.

In no  olher. district arc sales made more readily,  and nowhere else do sales benefit a greater number of people. Besides the benefit  derived from the sales of prospects, hundreds of men at work on the developed  mines arc receiving good wages. Money  may not bo as plentiful as in the boom  days following the discovery-of the Payne  by Eli Carpenter and "Jack" Seaton, but  there is sufficient money in sight to keep  all the people comfortably housed and  clo.thed���and none of them aro going either  hungry or dry.  It   has   been' contended  that  the  wages  paid   mine   workers   at   Rossland   are. the  highest      paid     anywhere     in     America.  No   one   coversant   with   the   facts   would  make  any  such  statement,   because  there  are many mining camps scattered throughout the Rockies and Sierras where wage3  are higher than they are at Rossland.   At  Telluride,    Colorado,    underground   miners  work eight hours a day, the men going to  and  from  work- on  their  own  time.    Machine men are paid $_ a day and trammers  and shovelers $3.    Others are paid from $3  to $1 according to the labor at which they  are employed.   These rates are paid under  the terms of an agreement signed by the  Telluride Mining Association, an organization made up of mine owners, and the Telluride Miners' Union, and is for a term of  three years.    This shows  that mine owners in Colorado not only pay higher wages  than is paid in .British Columbia, but they  Enterprise Mine and Elmore Cil Plant.  NELSON, December 13.���To thc -Editor  of The Tribune: Jn reading my copy of The  Tribune this morning I observed two items  of news relating to the Enterprise mine,  one, appearing under the heading of "Slocan Mining Matters" and the other "City  and District." Your correspondent has  apparently badly mixed up two plants,  namely, the concentrator wliich we recently erected at the Enterprise mine (and  which only started to run on the lSth November, since which tnere 'has been no  time to ascertain its "actual working results, although we have no reason to bo.  In any way dissatisfied with the mill practice, so far as-it is known,) with the Elmore oil plant.  Since the 18th November a slight accident occurred to the Blake crusher, which  has .unfortunately thrown the mill out of  operation for the past ten days, but replacements have already been forwarded  to the mine, a crusher jaw having been  made at the Honeyman foundry at Nolson,  and doubtless ere this the .mill is again  in running" order.    ,  With regard to the Elmore concentration  process,-the London & B. C. Goldfields,  Limited, ordered an experimental plant at  an even earlier date than the machinery  was ordered for thc Enterprise concentrator.���This���plant���was���novcr-in tended-for"  use at the Enterprise mine, and from the  known characteristics of the mine it is  extremely doubtful whether such process  would be adaptable thereto. ' Doubtless  when erected we will use same for testing  ores -, of -various properties offered us for  purchase, that being the primary reason  why the plant was secured. Tf timo and  opportunity permits-It Is possible wo may  put through this plant some of the ores  from the properties under the management  of this offlco, but it is improbable th.it Enterprise ore will be so .tested for many,  months to come,' as from tho character of  the ore, which Is well known to the company's engineer, it appears extremely unlikely that It wil.I be of any assistance In  treating Enterprise ore.  T shall be much obliged by your kindly  making this correction In your, columns. T  may say that It Is not our Intention to use  this experimental plant for ores outside of  which our companies may be directly Interested, and it is not Intended in any way  to compete with the assaying profession.  Yours truly, ,  J.   RODERICK  ROBERTSON.  trust that the same will meet your hearty  approval.  It is a matter of pleasure to note that  after having served two years and fifteen  days in the state penlxeutlary at Boise,  Idaho, in punishment of a crime of which  he never was guilty, brother Paul Corcoran is once more a free man and restored to the bosom of his lamily, his release  having been effected through the  state board of pardons on August  15th of this year. Those who worked so  faithfully and zealously to secure the liberty of brother Corcoran are entitled to  the hearty thanks and appreciation of all  our unions throughout the judtsdlction of  t.he federation.  We are pleased to report that the strike  at Telluride, which was in progress during  the last convention, has been brought to  a termination fully satisfactory to the  members of Sixteen to One Union and the  members of this board. The victory  achieved in this fight hns been an important event in the history of the federation.  It has been the means of Inducing .our  members to take a keener,interest in the  affairs of our organization and creating a  stimulus In work of organisation throughout the entire western country.  AVe beg to draw your attention to the  Ro .sland-Northpoi-t strike, which at. the  present moment is the only trouble the federation has on 'its hands. The causes and  conditions of this contest arc doubtless  more or less familiar to you. Suffice to  say, our brothers in that district have been  engaged In a bitter struggle for the past  *=ix months and have made a most magnificent fight for their rights and principles. Your executive board is determined  to win this struggle and has made every  effort to conduct this strike to a successful termination withouv levying any assessment, if possible. But in the event of  suoh an assessment becoming necessary,  we are confident that all members of the  federation will heartily respond with that  degree of promptness which has always  characterized the Western Federation of  Miners.  .The proceeds of the July .assessment  authorized by the last convention has  placed our organization in a much better  and stronger "position, . financially and  otherwise, than lt previously occupied. Not  only has it enabled us to liquidate our indebtedness of $10,000 to Butte union, -but  also to prosecute a vigorous policy of organization, the good fruits and results of  which are already producing a pleasing  :ind beneficial effect upon our organization.  Since the last convention your executive board has had three organizers ln the  field undor the direction of our president.  The result of their efforts has very largely,  If not completely, verified the predictions  cf those who strongly, advocated at the  last convention the adoption of a more  vigorous policy of organization. Thirty  unions have been organized during the past  half year, adding several, thousand members to our ranks and creating a corresponding increase in tho revenues of affiliated unions So encouraged has, your executive board become as the result of the  efforts of your three organizers during the  recent past, that arrangements have been'  made to keep them constantly In the, field  until the assembling of the' next convention.  Your executive board believes that the  federation nt Inrga- has much cause for  congratulation ln the measure of progress  and success attained during the past six'  months, and once the troubles which the  federation has on-hand at tho present time  arc satisfactorily adjusted, we feel that a  grand opportunity will present itself .that  must be embraced by united efforts In  order to augment tho Influence and membership of our organization .ind raise it to  a higher condition of efficiency than il has  hitherto occupied.

', A drove of Mavericks were herded' every  Night in a sad European -Hotel. One of  them was a Lady-Killer, who didn't deny  It. He had left a Trail of Broken Hearts  from -Penobscot, Maine, to the Puget  Sound.   He had a Style of Beauty made fa-  - miliar by the Wood-Cuts In the Weekly  Story Paper. He was the Police Gazette's  Idea of a Gent.. Also he was an identical  ' Ringer for the polished Vllllan of the Ten-  Twent-andThlrt- Repertoire Troupe. He had  a long, silky Gambler's Mustache and he  wore embroidered Suspenders. He was  Elegant ln every Detail. Trust him for  that.  His name should have been Chilton  Travers-or Lionel Lyndhurst, but his Parents could not foretell that-he would grow  up to be manicured once a Week, so they  called Mm Bill.  He wore Satin Fronts and Velvet Collars  and put Brilliantlne on the Mustache. BUI  had massive Jewels on each hand and a  Watch-Charm the-size of a Padlock. When  he had combed his Hair so that it stood  - up tn 'front, a la Polite Brakeman, and  whitened' himself with Talcum Powder and  splashed hlmsef with Musk and eaten a  few Cachous to perfume the Breath, he  was more than .Satisfied with himself. He  "wore sharp-toed "Patent Leathers with the  Green Tops at all Hours of the Day and  '..ight.   ,BIU  read  the  "Smart  Set"  every  - Month and told how; much his Clothes  cost and before he had 'conversed with  a  ! Stranger very long he would bring up the"  . Subject of Silk   Underwear.   One   of   the  .yearnlng'ambltlons of his Life was to own  a" Seal-Skin Overcoat.  .When  Bill 'was on  the  road  there  was  -, never a. Waitress with a waspy ,Walst and  high-heeled  Shoes  that   did   not   tremble  violently when she handed him' his 'Tender-  - loin of Beef Larded with Mushrooms. It,  Is not often' a poor. Working Girl gets a  Chance to - see - the real Zafoozalum, although she often 'reads about him ln The  Duchess.  |__t the. Hotel -.which he. Illuminated; with  - his plre'i^ncS, ^6111 was wont to gather" a few  'Friends'about him and tell of the Happy  Homes he had wrecked. He let lt be understood that when he held up his linger and  whistled, they came running from all Directions.  His Stock Narrative always began with  a Scene in a Parlor Car. According to his  Tell 'it was practically Impossible for him  to ride any distance ln_a Pullman without  having some Society Girl of ravishing  Beauty fix a hungry Gaze, on him and begin to wig-wag for a'Better Acquaintance.  She -was usually the daughter of a Cincinnati Millionaire- with a Swell Place on  ' Walnut Hill, or mayhap he learned afterward that,she belonged to a Prominent  Family living' In Euclid Avenue, Cleveland.  - If he �� cared " to '* mention Names he could  tell of a certain'Party that moved ln the  very -highest Push of Fifth Avenue, who  wanted to'break off an-Engagement with  a Guy from Boston, and' all on   his   Ac-  _count._He_wa_a.Ta_deyillamong_the_W_<>_nen,_  and he admitted lt.    As soon as a Lady  had counted up his Rings and Lockets and  got a good whiff of the Musk, she Capitulated and fell ln a swoon.  Sometimes, when the 'Pipe was drawing  very freely, he would tell all about being  Invited out to spend the Evening with a  certain Queen whose Father owned one of  the. principal Banks in Omaha. To prove  that all he said was True, he would show  a Pink Envelope with Sealing Wax on the  back of lt.  Those who had obtained a Flash of these  Missives noticed that they were addressed  in 'Blue Ink, with a Curly Tall to each Capital Letter, thus proving that they must  have been written by Heiresses.  One Peculiar Fact in connection with the  .Killings made   by.- 'this   Commercial   Don  . Juan-was that-all the-Victims of his Fatal  Beauty lived at least 200 miles away.   Here  ���'In'the town which 'was'Hendquarters for  him'he seemed comparatively Harmless.  He, .could put on his Fawn-Colored Prince  Albert with a Red Carnation and Jaundlce-  - colored "Cravat," and carry his Gold-headed  Cane:all up and down the main Thoroughfares and then come back to the European  .Hotel without having any of the. Elite tag-"  'gink 'after, him and.trying to Date him iip!  In fact, If he hadn't Confessed ,so. often no  ;o(ie--would-have   Buspected: that   Rainbow  Bill, the human Mardi Gras,' had ever cut  any Melons   outside   of   the   Switchmen's.  Ball. :  At t.hls. same Hotel there lived two or  three' Toting I'Fellows who did not i use  Brilliantlne or Scented Soap ahd not" one of  them had ever made Cruel Sport of; the  trusting Affections of a Railway Presl^  dent's only Child. ��� They thought theystood  good and lucky if they could sally-put after  Nightfall and while away a careless'Hour  with a few nice Stenographers and Music-  Teachers. .All they, expected was a.little���  Coon Stuff on the Piano and then some  Dutch Lunch.  It happened .that they told the Girls  about.Rainbow Bill who. lived down at the  jfoteland was receiving come-back-to-me  Letters every- ��� Minute or two from the  Leaders of Kansas City's 400 and the Prize  Beauties of Lexington, Kentucky, to say  nothing of the Hot Looker whose Old Man  had just built a $250,000 Hut outside of  T hlladelphla. The girls said they would  like to meet one who had got In right, with  so manr of the First Families, but they  ���were, afraid that he wouldn't pause to  .dally with them, seeing that they were on  Salary.

HOLT,  Manager Nelson Branch..  his Style more or less cramped when  thrown Into the 6x9 Parlor of a $22 Flat.  However, the Boys said they would try  to Inveigle Rainbow Bill. Only, they gave  Fair Warning that he claimed to be a  Sorcerer and that after he looked a Sou-  brette in-the Eye and made a couple of  ! Passes, she was his Willing Slave and  Took Orders from no one else. The Girls  said they were ready to take a Chance.  Besides they had been Vaccinated.  The Boy with the Wardrobe of many  Colors did not show any. Eagerness when  told that he was wanted up 'at the Flat.  He began to back Water and fake up Excuses. They had to tell him that the Girls  had seen him on the Street and wore dying  for an Introduction. At last he fixed himself up until he smelled like the front part  of a Drug Store and they took him in Tow.  Ho began to lose out from the Minute  that he came up .he front Steps. His reputation had preceded him and it was the  .kind that'would sink a Ship. The nifty  Tailor-made Damsel of 1901 doesn't ask  any better Sport than to walk up and down  on the Tonsorial Wretch who fancies that  he Is Irreslstable. As soon as a Man hills  himself as a Girl-tamer, me .whole Sorority wants to get out and stab him to death  with Hat-pins. For some Reason, the  latest variety of New Woman resents-the  Suggestion that She Is a Soft Mark for the  curb-stone Masher who uiTctnds ln front of  Cigar Stores ahd does the Ogle.  . It may have been True that Rainbow Bill  cut a wide Swath in Kansas City and visited.all the warm Tamales ln'St. Paul, but  .up In the dinky Flat he was one cold Portion of a'Lobster a la Newburg. The Girls  fparred him back into a corner and kidded him to a Frazzle. They passed the  Sarcastic Shots at the rate of ono per Second with no return, although frequently  lie had told that he was a great Hand for  Repartee. They hurled the Javelins into  him until he curled ..like a Rubber Band.  The fascinating Wiles that had played such  Havoc among the Society Belles at other  Points somehow refused to come to the  Surface. All he could do was shift his legs  the..Evening he found his Voice 8 times,  but" he' didnU. say anything that would  have Induced a Girl to leave her comfortable.Home. After the first- half hour they  wouldn't have known that he was there  at all. If he hadn't got in the Way occasionally.  ', MORAL:    Copper all  Confessions.  .     BITS ABOUT THE BOXERS.  Torry McGovern argues that he had the  best of the fight up to the time that he  got licked. And that's like the small boy  who thought the second horse should have  won the race because lt led most of the  way. , ,  Canadians will take more Interest in thc  conquerer of Terry McGovern" when they  learn that His father, John H. Rothwell,  was born ln Llstowed, Ontario, about 45  years ago. .His grandfather emigrated from  England to Canada about 1S00. John H.  Rothwell's wife, the mother of Young Corbett, was also named Rothwell. She was a  remote cousin of her husband.   The pugll-  .lst's_father_was_a_traliier_and_drlver of  trotting horses ln his youth, as his father  was before him. As a youngster he was  fond of sports but never boxed. He Is a  small, wiry man of no great muscular  ability, but with a strong, healthy constitution:    .    ���  Lou Houseman of the Chicago Record,  states that on the train from Hartford  back to New York he sat with manager  Harris and the McGovern foi lowers from  the big city. From their talk, lt seems that  it was agreed before the light that McGovern was to let Corbett stay five rounds,  afterwards of course winning. This the  Denver sports agreed to, but when the  men got Into the ring, Corbett got Instructions to put McGovern out as soon as he  could, In other words, to give McGovern  the double-cross. McGovern was not ln  the best of shape, and the fast pace tired  him. He left himself open, so the story  goes, and Corbett put him down In the.second round. The thing came as such a surprise to McGovern, thinking everything  had already been fixed, that he lost his  head, and was. eventually put down and  out "as has already-been described.  It Is not likely that Frank Erne, the  lightweight champion of the world, will  ever fight again. He Is now In England  and, from present indications, will not  come back to America for two years. Erne,  according to Jimmy Michael, has fallen into  a "soft thing" in London, having been engaged as boxing Instructor of Oxford university. -.When the champion flrst landed  on-the other side he wa�� introduced to' the  best people there, and one afternoon at a  set of physical exercises of the university,  to which he was invited, he was asked to  give- ah* exhibition with a local boy. Erne  did as ho was requested and so. impressed  the committee on athletics of the institution-that a meeting was held at which he  was appointed to teach boxing. Erne accepted the-offer, which was said to bo flattering, and signed a contract for two years.  McGovern, like many of his predecessors  who have followed the well-trodden path  that leads from victory to defeat, will  probably attempt to climb back again. It is  notorious that the footing Is very poor under such circumstances. If he regains the  pinnacle he will have accomplished that  which has never before been done. McGovern is young, only 21, and there seems  no legitimate reason why he should abandon the game merely because of one defeat.   He may develop better than ever be-  IMPERIAL BANK  OF    Q-A._EsT A TD.A.  Capital (paid up)  Rest       -  $2,600,000  $1,850,000  HEAD  OFFICE. TORONTO, ONTARIO.

Terry's manager should be more superstitious, and in the future, If his charge  ever mounts the pedestal as chief gladiator in any pugilistic class, he should not  start him out on the "Road to Ruin." It, is  an ominous title.  Tim Hegarty, the Australian champion  lightweight, thinks he has a cinch on the  American boxers of his class. In a letter  to the Sidney Referee, Hegarty harps at  length on the manner in which he has  been treated by the fight promoters who  brought him over here and then launches  off with his opinion ot the fighters here.  In speaking of the Callahan-Bernsteiri  fight, Hegarty said he nearly cried when  he saw the two together, and that It would  have been no trick at all for him to put  the two out in one ring at the same time.  "I can assure you," says Hegarty ln his  letter, "Ned Cullen could have stopped the  pair Inside of ten rounds. Picture for yourself how I felt, and I was sorely In want  of the money, too!" Speaking of his treatment, Hegarty had this to say: "The people here are very good to me. The Australians recently here made a very bad  name for our country by the way in which  they conducted themselves. T can assure  you that a man don't want to be seen  drinking here or his name is 'mud' in a  very short time. For a long time after I  landed the newspapers kept harping on my  bout with Tweedie. 'Why didn't you beat  him?' they said. I had to explain that it  was merely an exhibition of boxing for  Tweedie's benefit." Hegarty will be given  a chance to show what he can do December 12th, when he meets Kid Lavinge before the new Acme Club in Oakland.  FAR FROM A BACK NUMBER  John Bull Still Strong and Lusty.  Some superficial observers are proclaiming aloud that John Bun is henceforth to  be. regarded as a back- number in the  world's story. He has played his part, we  are told; a grand enough part in its time,  but henceforth he is- to be reckoned as a  decaying and declining force. : "    i  If this were true, it would be a bad  thing, not only for John Bull himself, but  for all who have dealings with him, America, in particular, would regret it. for  England Is now America's best customer  for exported goods, and the 'stronger and  better and richer England is, the more will  lt be able to buy. From a purely selfish  point of view America should desire nothing more than that British prosperity  should go on by leaps and bounds.  Nations are slow to learn what individuals have long since seen���that the well  being of one helps all.  'But is John Bull played out? Has he  started out on that down slide along which  the great empires of the'past have run?  There is something to justify the fear  at first. The story of Smith Africa, dinned  through the world for two long years, has  revealed many unsuspected weaknesses.  British political institutions, the model of  representative government' in many lands,  _are_today on__thelr_trlal._.Representative.  government in England has become almost  a farce, there is a total lack of great  statesmen, and the house of commons, long  the glory - of the nation, has become the  mock and jibe of the mob. * .  _/  English manufacturers have been asleep.  English trade sunions have been foolish.  There has been too much resting on past  tradition. The freshest and most original  of English life has gone abroad, to the colonies or to America, and there has more  than maintained the traditions of Its race.  But John Bull Is waking up. He Is not  a born fool,: and those who reckon too confidently on his folly may find that they  have made a grave mistake. He is learning from the American and the Gorman,  but ln a few years he will do again what  he has often done ln tlie past. He will  suck some of those Invading strangers ln,  and make them part of himself.  Nearly all the great British mercantile  families of the past have been strangers  who came to England to exploit her, and,  soon found themselves the stoutest Englishmen. Thus the Barings were sons of  a Dutch pastor. Now one of them rules  Egypt for England, several members of the  family, such as the Ashburtons, the Rev-  elstokes and the Northbrooks, sit among  England's lords.     '*-'���.'  Lord Milner came almost direct from  Germany, yet surely In South Africa he has  proved himself pro-Briton enough to please  any ono. The Rothchllds came* from  Frankfurt, now they are the British overlords of the most of a county. And one  might go on indefinitely.  The same thing continues today. American Importers send in their surplus stock.  Soon they find it more convenient to build  a factory in England. Then one member  of the family settles ln England and usually becomes more English than the Englishman.   Both nations profit.  John Bull is not yet played out, because  he Is willing to learn (in business, If not in  politics) from his own namesakes. He is  waking up In earnest. During this past  summer every big American factory has  been visited by many Englishmen seeking  to know what America has to teach, them.  They have gone home to adopt American  methods, greatly to the benefit of both nations.  Decadent nations will never really admit  that there can be anything the matter with  them. Insinuate to the Spaniard that his  Is not the mightiest and greatest people  on earth and there will be trouble.

'- [  England is still in proportion to her population, the largest manuiacturing nation.  She Is still supreme in the world's shipping, and her dockyards ring day arid night  with the sound of busy hammers. Her  reputation for . solid honesty still" stands  high in the world's markets.  There is another thing, which those who  look forward into the world's future must  not ignore. In the past, the government of  the British empire has b'ee'n left in the  hands of the small ruling-'class in England.  The strong and enterprising^ men of "the  colonies, while ruling themselves as they  would within certain limits, have "not been  allowed to take their share in imperial administration.     ' ���       '       '  The colonies are not much longer going  to allow blunderers to spoil the affairs of  their empire. They will make an end of  the amateur politicians, who find their  real joy in life in golf or literature, or  (lower gardens, while the affairs of state  under them are allowed . to be wrecked.  Once younger England steps to the front,  there will be little more talk of decadence.  John Bull is going to have trouble, and  great trouble. It needs no prophet to foretell that. But, with all his shortcomings,  ho retains such solid virtues as will make  him anything but a spent force in future  struggles for supremacy. And it is well for  his friendly rivals that this is so.���San  Francisco Examiner.   =���The-New-Star-in-Perseus.   The astronomical staff at Greenwich Is  much interested in the latest developments  in the new star discovered February last  in the constellation Perseus. One of the  mathematical experts, lu*speaking of it recently, said:  "New stars are not looked upon now  with the same feelings of .wonderment as  formerly, and they are catalogued and  placed on the star maps'"In.the same routine way as thair less spectacular brethren;  but the Perseus star has,apparently shown  such marked peculiarities that, admitting  thoir truth, li Is the most wonderful object  In the heaveis. The main cause it gives  for astonishment is this: Two photographs taken six weeks apart show that it  has moved over an interval of celestial  space which Is defined as one minute of  arc.  "To the non-mathematical mind there Is  nothing especially remarkable in this  statement, but a cleaier understanding  makes plain the reasons why astronomers  are now according this .new star the principal place In their speculations.  "An observer on thc earth is, in round  numbers. 90,000,000 miles from the sun.  Should he note the position of the solar  body at any hour of the day and then at  the same hour the day following he would  see the sun had moved over the space of  one celestial degree; strictly speaking, it  is not the sun which has moved, but the  earth, and the distance it has traversed in  its orbit ln tha twenty-four hours���1,500,000  miles���is what causes the change of one  degree in the sun's position. In passing  over one inin'ite of arc the earth takes  about twenty minutes and travels 25,000  miles.  "But the new star is* so much farther  away from the earth than the sun that tho  figures applicable to them are hardly dignified enough to be called yard sticks,  when the tremendous speed of one minute  of arc in six weeks for a. similar angular  displacement Is considered at the distance  of the nearest fixed star.  "Slrlus. which is the nearest first magnetic star. Is one million times thc sun's  distance from us, and its change in position from one year's end to another is nol  quite one-third of a minute of arc; this  means a speed of thirty miles per second  of its mass through space. But the stars  in the constellation Perseus are at even a  rpmoter distance than Sirlus, and the new  star, until Its parallax Is determined, Is,  , t presumed to be one of them.   . ...  c oiivc-Fj^isrir  0FFICE:��BAKER STREET WEST, NELSOJJ, B.

The newspapers of Kootenay and Yale  as a rule are advocating a redistribution of  scats in the provincial legislature along the  lines of representation by population. It is  not alone on population that the redistribution should be made, but also the geographical position and industrial interests  oi.' communities should be taken into consideration in a scheme for redistribution.  Take for instance the country through  which the Kettle river and Us tributaries  flbw, although from boui a geographical  and an industrial point of view the interests of the whole district are the same, yet  it is divided and tacked on to other districts. Thc Boundary is a part of the  -Rossland���riding,���although^goographlcaily-  JJie two districts have about the samo interests in common as the cities of Vancouver and Victoria. The West, Fork, a  purely mining district, is tacked on to an  agricultural district one hundred miles distant. The whole Kettle River country  should be an independent electoral district  as thc industrial interests of the 'people  are practically the 'same throughout the  whole territory,' and geographically one  part of the district is easy of access from  lhe ether. The people of the Boundary  could hardly expect the attention to their  wants that would be "given by a member  residing in the district could be given by  a member residing outside the district. Besides the member for Rossland does not  appear to have any regular place of residence, but appears to spend his time  roaming' round the country discovering  passes for Jim Hill, telling the people  what the Hon. Smith is doing for them,  and fusing himself with every faction born,  in Vancouver, the home of political freaks.  Thc member for East Yale resides about,  one, hundred miles froni the .mines of .the  West Fork. He is a rancher, elected by a  ranching community, and his sympathies  naturally run towards turnips, alfalfa, and  other products of the soil from the cultivation of which he makes his living. It is  not probable he could tell whether the ore  bodies of the AVest Fork occur in a liquid  or solid form, or whether they are annuals  or not. So, apart from the inequalities in  population to be remedied in the^electornl  districts of the provinco, there are also  the equally important questions of geographical position and industrial interests  to be considered in a redistribution of  seats.���West Fork News.

Copper  Company's Mother Lode mine contributed  a dollar each to provide a Christmas tree  and presents for the children living at the  mine.

Big Contracts Made for Iron Ore.  CLEVELAND, December 13.-~Tho Plain-  dealer says:' ".The independent iron "ond  steel companies havo contracted for upwards of 20,000,000 tons of raw material  under contracts running for several years.  Millions of dollars; are involved in tbe  deal. Since the organization of the United  States Steel 'Corporation there has been  considerable talk about that organization  buying the property of the outside mines,  accordingly, the independent furnacemen  have taken .thefaction noted above. In  some cases the prices have been fixed and  the Mesaba or.es . will Do based on this  year's figures. The prices for the long  contracts .will- not have much bearing on  pricos .for 1902. All sales of Mesaba ores  are being made at an advance of 25 cents  a ton over the.prices that ruled this year.  .Vice-president Cayley of the United States  Steel Corporation'-'suggested the abovo advance, and the" independent mine owners,  as a'rule,1" agreed with him, and the  greater part of the deals that have been  closed for 1902 were made on that basis!  Costa Rica in a Bad Way.'  SAN JOSE, Costa Rica, December 13.���  The rejmblic of Costa Rica has for a few-  years past been sinking into poverty and  today misery stares the citizens in the  face. Business of all sorts is practically  stopped and many pending failures are  being discussed in business circles. The  government is.without funds to meet the  most pressing needs and hundreds of  workmen are idle in the streets. To make  things worse, the approach of the presidential election is causing nervousness. The  bitter feeling between the government and  the republican and national parties grows  more intense every day and several leaders predict bloodshed will be the outcome.  Policy Gambling Doomed.
