 ti  -rrrr  .-.*!  ESTABLISHED  1892  FRIDAY MORNING,  DECEMBER  13;   1901  DAILY EDITION  TO VOTE MONDAY  ON RATIFICATION OF NEW  TREATY.  WARM   DEBATE   IN SENATE  ON  THE   MERITS   OF   THE  CONVENTION.  In  If  \i  (Ui  E'l  S*'  WASHINGTON, December 12.���The sen-  ' ate agred today to take a. vote before adjournment next Monday on the new Hay-  Pauncefote treaty for the abrogation of tho  Clayton-ltulwer treaty and opening the  ' way for thc construction of a canal across  the isthmus of Panama by the United  Statcs.This agreement was reached after  four hours debate, sufficiently interesting  to secure the constant attendance of most  of the senators. Senator Spooner, who was  one of the principal speakers of the day  had just concluded when senator Lodge  attempted to secure a vote. It developed  that there were other senators who desired to be heard, the .esult being that  the date for the vote was postponed until Monday. Thc agrement provides for an  adjournment of the .senate from today until Monday and for a meeting at 1 o'clock  on Monday, one hour In advance of tlio  -.1 -iial time. The understanding is that as  soon as practicable after the senate convenes, senator Lodge shall move an executive session and that thc treaty shall havo  thc entire attention of tho'senate until-a  final voto is reached before the adjournment for that day.  The principal speakers today beside senator Spooner and senator Money and senator Foraker.  Mr. Monoy. while finding much dn the  ( treaty to criticize, said that as lieTound  that the fortunes of tne proposed canal  across the isthmus were inextricably intertwined with the treaty, he could not see  his way clear lo do anything that would  prevent or even delay ratification. Thc  principal features of the now treaty  that he found fault with were those referring to the neutrality provision of the  Clayton-Bulwer convention and specifying  police control of the canal whon built.  He argued that the effect of those provision.- inevitably mi>>-t be t? limit and  prescribe the power of tho United States  to"control its own property in case of war.  Senn tor Foraker maintained that the .provisions of thc new treaty met every objection, made "to the original Hay-Pauncefote  treaty and cover every essential thing thai  was included in the amendment made by  the senate to that document. He regarded-  it as of the utmost Importance that the  Clayton-Bulwer treaty should be wiped out.  This result was affected by thc convention  under consideration. He asserted that all  rights of the United States were amply  protected under this treaty and that our  absolute and complete control of the eanal  could not be questioned by Great Britain or  any ol,her power. Mr. Foraker's speech  dealt largely with the legal construction  and the general effect of the treaty. He  said that aftor a careful study of its provisions he was firmly convinced that it  could bo honestly supported by every patriotic citizen.  Senator Fora'ker was frequently interrupted by senator Bacon. Jn the course of  one of these interruptions--Mr. Bacon  =asked=if=lt���was*=not���true=that���under=the=  terms of the treaty the construction of  the fortifications of the United States  would be an act of war. ,  Mr. Foraker replied in the negative, declaring that not only would such an act  not be an act of hostility, but that to build  fortifications in case of necessity was one  of the inherent rights of the government.  To this Mr. ��� Bacon replied that ho, for  one, would never bring himself to vote for  iho ratification of the treaty with the 'understanding* that this government was to  violate It. Mr, Foraker retorted sharply  tliat his friend from Georgia could be no  more virtuous along the lino of maintaining the country's honor in the matter of  keeping his agreement., with other nations  than wore olher senators.  "  Mr. Bacon replied that he had not meant  to assume virtue that he did not possess,  nor to Imply that others were not as jealous of the country's good name as he himself was.  Mr. Foraker then declared that he had  not meant to charge Mr. Foraker with an  unfair assumption, but merely to say that  like all. oilier nations supporting a treaty,  ho felt he was giving his name to a transaction which would be honorably carried  out as between nations.  Senator Spooner, who followed, also was  frequently interrupted by senators on the  Democratic side. One ot tne first interruptions came from senator Bacon and pertained to the right to fortify the canal.  P.eplylng to this Inquiry, Mr. Spooner said  that it was a well known principle of international law that all treaties, like all  statutes, must be read together and he'  contended in this connection that the Clayton-Bulwer treaty,, the original Hay-Pauncefote treaty and the pending agreement  for the proper construction of the agreement should be considered as one series.  The Clayton-Bulwer agrement had. provided that there should ho no fortifications  of the canal and the Hay-Pauncefote  treaty of the 5Gth congress had carried a  similar provision, but thc new treaty-  struck out the entire fortification provision,  clearly showing that England, after contending for half a century-against fortifications had waived that provision, thus  practically conceding our right to fortify  the '-proposed canal. A very important question was raised by a number of senators  on the Democratic side as to the right of  thc United Slates to give a differential rate  to vessels engaged In our coastwise trade.  the Republican side ot the chamber into  the cimtro.orsy. Senators Perkins and  Nelson are among those who contributed  lo this feature of tho controversy. Senator  Kelson insisted that under the existing  law ihu United States would have a perfect right to give to the coastwise trade  of this country any benefit it might see  proper In use of the canal. It was perfectly well understood, ho said, tliat thc  ships of a foreign nation would not do a  .���oastwlse business and Great Britain had  made the Ireaty with a full knowledge of  this fact.  Senator Perkins made the assertion that  by the acquisition or control of a strip  of territory through which the canal  would puss, the United States would acquire rii;ht.'i whicli would subject that territory to our coastwise laws, and said for-  e:��-n bottoms could not trade between  ports of tho United Slates and-any portion  of the territory through which the canal  was built. '  Dominion inspection by In.rpoo.tor Wilson.  Customs authorities are quoted as-saying  tliat they will not turn over shipments to  Cunningham.  J. R.  Stltt, the new C.  P. R. agent to  Australia,   arrived   todny.  The Tc<5S last night urought news of  terrible hardships to two Japs who were  cast ashore and were five days without  food on an Island off Skeena. One Jap had  bis legs amputated as the result of exposure.  MORGAN'S  CANAL REPORT  Scores Panama Company.  WASHINGTON,    December    12��� Senator  Morgan's report covers more than 5U0 pages  of   printed   matter   and  deals   with   many  question.-* in connection with the construction of tlie mial, including a thorough inquiry -into   the   attitudu  of  Great   Britain  upon   the   ���subject   of   the   different   canal  routes.  Tie also discusses  the relationship  of the Panama Canal Company to the construction by the United States of a waterway   across   the   isthmus,   and   while   he  makes   reference   to   a   letter   written   by  president Hutin of  the Panama  Company  to socrotary of stale Hay, he does not give  the text of  thc eommunication.~Mr.  Morgan ^ays that the letter addressed to secretary Hay was dated November 22nd last,  and that it was written alter admiral Walker,  as president of the commission,  had  closed his correspondence with Mr.  Hutin  relating to* the sale of the Panama canal.  He then adds: "The letter to Mr. Hay with-  the appendix there otand the memorandum  fiat   accompanies  it  Is  an  attack on  the  president  of  the commission  replete  with  false a?umptions and  perversions of fact,  .nd is evidently intended  to create an issue,  the debate on  wliich,  it is hoped' by  Mr. Hulin, will delay if it does nol defeat  thc  final  a>_Uon   of  congress  in  providing  for the construction of une canal. This proceeding and  the placing of this corospon-  dencc in tho hands of the president of thc  United States by Mr. Hulin with a request  that it be communicated to congress is but  a   continuation   of   the   presumptuous  and  offensive   proposition   previously   made   by  'he   Panama   Can 'il   Company. .This   company, " in   a^ previous   administration,   had  succeeded in obtaining the resignation of a  secretary of the navy to accept a nominal  position in  their service at a large salary  and expended $1,500,000 in New York chiefly  in  acquiring   the  aid   of  loading  business  houses in promoting the De Lessep's plan  without a do'lar of stock being subscribed  in that eity. The desperate financial straits  of the New Panma  Canal  Company compelled   them    to   make   overtures   to   thc  United   States   to   unload   their   enterprise  on tho United States and their agonts became accordingly aggressive in this effort.'"  Dredging a Channel.  During the low stage of wator the tugs  used bv the C. P. R. in towing barges  from iviotenay Landing to Procter and  Nelson are unable to reach the slip at the  Landing, and a small tug has to be used  i-o tow Ui3 barges to deep water. This  caused delays, and the company decided to  dredge, the channel so that tho deep wator  tugs could get to the slips at all seasons.  The*"work is being done by he Crow's Nest  division, the Nelson division leaning the"  barge. An ordinary steam shovel is used  for the dredger, the arm being lengthened  The channel to be (fredged will be 500  fpet long by 50 feet wide, and a month or  more wiM  be  '���equired to do the work.  Developing the New Route  NEW VOKK, December 12.���Another important step has b2en taKen in developing  the now route to Ireland authorized by  parliament which may at no distant day  provide the quickest route for mails and  passengers etween London and New York,  says a London dispatch to the Tribune,  The contract for the erection of a pier 1000  feet Jong at Rosslnre near Wexford has  been closed. This pier is a poition of the  scheme in whicli thc Great Southern of  Ireland js concerned. A last lino of steamers is to run betwen Fishguard on the'  Welsh coast and Rosslare, and the idea  ���s seriously entertained in certain quarters  that this is to be the American mail route  of  the  future.

GRAND FORKS, December 12���The rale-  payers today adopted two by-laws granting aid to the Victoria, Vancouver &  Eastern and Republic & Grand Forks railways, respectively. A light vote was polled.

Stone-,0 the American missionary, aod  madame Tsilka, her companion, indicates  that their condition has so far been ameliorated that they are able to obtain rude  comforts, ft is even.said that thc brigands  have a "doctor ready at hand in case his  services are' needed. Tt appears that the  brigands are now complaining that Miss'  Stone is trying to convert them to Chris-  tianitv. Recognizing the illegality of the  abduction of Miss Stone and her companion  the brigands contend that their^actiou was  in the interest of a sacred cause and therefore  justifiable.  SLOGAN  MINING MATTERS  Collector Milne Reversed.  VTCTORI A, December it.���The minister  of customs has reversed the decision of  collector Milne in the matter of the plans  for the New Westminister and roint Ellice  bridges which were seized for duty here.  The collector wanted to collect 20 per cent  on 2 1-2 per cent of the estimated cost .of  the work for which the plans were to be  sued. This made the duty on. the plans  for the New Wcsminister bridge $4G0. The  minister rules that duty shall only be collected on the actual cost of producing the  plans. Tinder this ruling the duty will  not amount to a very large amount  Coast Local News.  - VANCOUVER, December 12.���[Special to  The Tribune.]���Hon. W. <J. AVells arrived  Ibis afternon from' Ottawa and proceded  to Victoria. He says statements of railway negotiations which he cat ried out in  the east, as contained ln the" press dispatches, are correct, Although a definite  promise was not given, he is assured the  government will assist in the conslruction  of tho Westminster bridge, probably to the  extent of a quarter of a million dollars or  more. The Dominion will also assist in tho  construction of the Ooast-Kool.enay line.

The Queen Bess mino is looking better  than ever and the management is making  arrangements to resume shipments.  The Hewitt mine, near Silverton,  resume shipments in the immediate future.  There are 200 tons of ore ready to be sent  down from the mine.  There is in the neighborhod of 100 men at  work on the Arlington property and the  mine is now in shape to ship  500 tons per month if the management so  dickies.  At the Bosun, mine, near New Denver,  shipments are to be resumed. There arc  110 tons of ore ready for shipment audit  is snid that this rate of shipment will bo  kept up for some time.  The Hartney mine expects to  ship  considerable ore  this  winter, 'and at the Ca-  pella there are said 200 tons of high  =^rivde__ore^^a\y_aHXng_ahJiim  said ��� will average $2000 to  the car. .;.*  ,   At the. Emily Edith property it is said the  managomen t is wait'ing for an advance in  the price of silver and lead before making  'shipments.   There   is   a   considerable   tonnage  awaiting shipment,  and  the mine is  said   to   be   in   excellent   shane.  Considerable shipments are expected  from the Republic property this-season.  A deal upon this property was recently  made by Dempster of. Spokane and'active-  development work upon tho property is  promised  this  winter.  Development on the Neepawa is most  satisfactory. There is but a small crew of  men at work on the property, but their  work has shown up a 20 inch stringer of  high grade ore nnd thb holders ot the bond  expect shortly to be In a position to ship  100  tons  of  ore per month.  At thc Iron Horso lt a question as t<l  when thc owners of tho proporty consider  it advisable to commence shipments, There  is now little doubt that tiie owners of this  property . have the. Enterprise vein, but  but the company operating hns plenty of  money and is not forced to ship.  Several changes have been made * at the  Enterprise mine on Ten-mile. The management of the mine and mill Is now in  charge of Mussen, who was formerly at  the Athabasca. It is also saidthat the con}  pany will make experiments with the new  process of oil concentration. The owners  of the property are reported to have re--  eeiveil from London an experimental plant,  and if it v-roves a. success it is said the  new process wil be introduced on Ten-mile,  So far it is said that considerable losses  have been met with in the attempts to concentrate thc dry ores in the Enterprise  and it is with a view to preventing this los.1  that the oil experiments will be made.  NEW YORK, December 12.���At S o'clock  this morning there were five teams tied"  for first place in tho six-day bicycle race,  at Madison Square. The leaders were then  26 miles behind the record. AU through the  early morning ��� hours, tne riders loafed  tround the track, falling far behind the  i-o. ord. Thiy were tired, especially Lawson,  who seemed to wobble all over the track at  times.' The men are now working two hour  relays except during an exciting sprint,  when the changes occur every few moments. Jimmy Hall of the English team stole  ' a lap shortly before S o'clock. The riders  were taking things easily when Hall shit,  out of fourth place and got ahead of the  bunch. In a very short time he had made  the coveted lap and was onlv three lap.J  behind the leaders. The crowd had hardly  stopped chering Hall, when Chevallier, one  of the Swiss team which "lost a lap last  night, got ahaad of the leaders. He made  a wonderful spurt and gained half a lap  when Fisohe"r, his partner, relieved him,  and mado up for the other half.  Eight o'clock score: McEachran and Walthour, Butler and McLean, Newkirk and  Munro, Mava and Wilson, Fischer- and  Chevallier, 1525 miles 9 laps; Babcock and  Turville, 1525 S laps; King and Samuelson,  1525 7 laps; Lawson and Julius, 1525 6 laps;  Hall and MacT.aren 1523 0 laps J.Fredericks  and Jaak, 1523 5 laps. fl  Noon score; McEachran and Walthour,  Butler and McLean, Newkirk and Munro,  May and Wilson and Fischer and Chevallier, 1598 miles 3 laps; Babcock "and Turville 159S 2 laps; King and Samuelson, 159S  1 lap; Lawson and Julius, "159S; Hall and  MacLaren, 159S; Fredericks and Jaak 1508  9 laps.  At 1:45 Babcock and Turville gained a lap,  which placed them on even terms with the  others in'the race. The score at 2 o'clock  was as follows: McEachran and Walthour,  Butler and McLean,. Mny and Wilson,  Fiseher-and Chevallier," Babcock and Turville .and King and Samuelson, 1631 miles  7 laps;- Newkirk and Munro, 1G3T C laps;  Lawson and Julius 1C31 3 laps; Hall and  MacLaren, 3031 1 lap; Fredericks'anct jaak  H531 1 lap.  NEW YORK, Decembor 12.���Along in the  afternoon a crash ocurred between McLean  and Chevallier. They fell from their wheels  and Chevallier was eviaently hurt. An instant later Fischer, who had been hastily  mounted on his wheel by his trainer 'to  take the place of his partner, was riding at  full speed about the track when Fredericks  who seemed to be very weak, struck the  rear of Fischer's bicycle. Both were thrown  to the track and Hall ran into the fallen  riders and was thrown from liis wheel.  He escaped injury, however. When his  irainers reached his side he was lifted up  and was about to be carried to his quarter's when he became wild and fought  them, kicking one of them in the stomach.  Later in the afternoon it was announced  that Fischer and Chev.iilier would be un-  able to continue the race. Fischer sustained  evory increase ln height has so far increased the range of wireless telegraphy.  Mr. Eddy says that should the receiving  vessel 2000 miles out to ��ea also send up a  receiving wire by means of a kite storm  flyers to a higlit of ^1000 he thinks the 1000  mile limit will be more than doubled.  "Major Baden-Powell," Mr. Eddy says,  "fastens one kite to the back of another  when flying tho kites tandem, but that  with the Improved system of fastening a  radiating line to a main line the safety will  be greater than with one kite, because if  one kite gives out the others will sustain  the apparatus, ire says that major Baden-  Powell was hoisted to a height of 100 feet  in the presence of the Scots Guards and  that the major is one of the most famous  kite experts in the world."  seems to be excellent authority, Since last  January the Boll company has expressed  Itself as willing to take up the Erie as  soon as it could put its affairs in shape.  Under the reorganization plan it is said  that the Bell company will acquire a controlling interest in the stock of the subsidiary companies and pay off the Erie  indebtedness  of  about $9,000,000..  GOMPERS OBJECTS  Philadelphia's Sportsmen's Show.  PHILADELPHIA, December- 12.���The  Philadelphlans, proverballlly conservative,  were slow in patronizing the sportsman's  show at first, butpthe great exposition has  now won its way into full favor. The Ojib-  way Indian canoeists, Messrs. Lewless and  Johnston of Ottawa, Canaulan guides Harris and Tongue's race against the Indians  are also very popular, and other features  are good. The fish, game, fowl and" big  game exhibitions are the best gathered together at any sportsman's show. The attendance has run as high as 20,000 in one  dny. At a meeting of the Forestry Association of Pennsylvania one of the popular speakers was L. E. Armstrong, who  represented the North American Fish and  Game Protective Association, which was  started in Montreal and now embraces ten  states  and provinces within  the  sphere.  More Soldiers Are Needed.    - _,  NEW YORK, December 12.���A dispatch  to the London Times from Wellington,  New Zealand, says responsible New Zea-  landers returning from South Africa declare that more sodiers are wanted to finish the war. The troops have the utmost  confidence in lord Kitchener, but his efforts are hampered by the ill-advised agitation in the United Kingdom.) It is-asserted that excessive consideration is shown  to tho Boors in tho refuge camps, while the  colonists in Natal are suffering hardships.

Several of them were  so weak they seemed hardly able to remain  on their wheels.  Manager Winsett of McEachran and  AValthour was very angry that the judges  refused to allow his team a Tap which ho  claimed they had made, and threatened to  pull the team from the track.  Shortly before. G o'clock McEachran,  dressed in citizen's clothes, appeared on the  track and announced that he would not  ride any moro unless the lap he claimed  was restored and allowed. Ho Walked off  the track wilh his partner, AValthour, who  was on *ils wheel, shouting to him to come  buck and not. desert him. To these'appeals  ho  paid   no  heed.  NEAV YORK, December 12.���AVIth the beginning of the last half of the six-day bicycle race ivlth its attenaant spills and  nervous tension ofthe riders strained to  the breaking point, thc interest of the public is greatly on the increase. This interest  was apparent in. the presence .of 16,000 people in Madison Square Garden at S o'clock  tonight. At 8 orcIock the men were 57 miles  and 4 laps behind the record. Early in the  evening the trainers of McEachran ��� and  Walthour agreed to withdraw their protest  against the referee's decision which refused them the lap they claimed to have  gained during the afternoon and for whieh  decision McEachran threatened to quit the  race.

Tribune.]���The North-  port Smelting & Refining Company was  compelled to close down this morning for  lack of water. Robert Morrill closed his  dam on Deep creek and raised the ice  off his rnill-pond. Tho- ice washed down  the creek nnd choked up the intake to  the smelter fiume. The water in the smelter company's reservoir was exhausted  before the smeltermen discovered that the  fiume was ont of order. One blast furnace  was very nearly wrecked, and the man-  ���nsremont estimate the damage to tlie works  nt XIOOO The flume was cleared out  nnd the smelter is working about half  force this evening. The shut-off of the  water today is the outcome of a dispute  over tho Deep creek water right between  Robert Morrill nnd the smelter company.  Tho company is building a pumping station  in   tho  river  at  a  cost of  $20,000  for  use.  Baden-Powell's Famous Kite.  BAYONNE, New Jersey, December 12.���  AVilliam A. Eddy, who arrived from No-  anck, Connecticut, today, says that he  writes to Mr. Marconi tonight enclosing  diagrams of an improven tandem kite system for reaching a height of 30000 feet  with major Baden-Powell's kite. He thinks  this system will enable Marconi to send  a   message   at   least   1000   miles,   because  wherever the Deep creek supply falfsT  Tho expense of raising water from the  river wil! be very large, and it is probable  that the comnany will be forced to make  terms with  Morrill.  Marconi's Newfoundland Experiments.  ST JOHNS, Newfoundland, Decembor 12.  ���The trial balloon used by William Marconi, the inventor of wireless telegraphy,  who is here conducting experiments with  his system, broke from its moorings last  night and drove away sea word. The accident Is not uncommon and occasions little annoyance. The inventor is prepared  for such emergencies and will send up another  balloon   today.  A dispatch from S. Johns, Newfoundland lo the Associated Press, on December  1st snld that Marconi had that afternoon  succeeded In floating a balloon 200 feet  above the summit of Signal Hill, which Is  000 fot high and overlooks the harbor of  St. Johns.

Johns, manager of the  Montreal'& Boston Copper Company's Sunset mine. Asked as to the truth of the  statement that he had agred to ship a  minimum of two hundred tons of ore daily  to the Granby smelter, Johns replied that  he had commenced loading cars yesterday,  but as he cannot as yet get sufficient dump  railway cars, only 60 to 100 tons dally will  be shipped, but will inciease the shipments  after additional furnaces are blown in at  the smelter. The large hoist for the Sunset is expected to arrive shortly. After It  is Installed he will be able to handle a larger output of ore at the mine.

The negro problem'in tha  south, as far as lt related to unionism, was'  unexpectedly injected into the proceedings ,  and the long standing conflict betwen the  socialists and trade unionists promised to  monopolize the attention of the delegates  had the 'socialists replied to the trade unionists. The question of organizing common,  laborers into a national union ard the calling out of unions of all organizations allied with the citj', state, national, or international unions if they refuse to affiliate  with the American Federation, of Labor  were also vigorously debated.  Thc   socialist  Incident   came 'up  in'the  morning session during trie discussion of  a. committee report indorsing most of; the  recommendations  contained' in Mr.   Gom-  per's annual report. D. H. Hays of Phila-_  delphia,   president  of   the  Glass   Blowers,  and Max Hays of the' Cleveland  Central  Labor   Union,   the   well   known   socialist,  made speeches strongly urging the enforcement of laws prohibiting child labor. The  latter,  during his remarks,  read  a list ot  decisions rendered   by   federal   and   state  courts against organized^ labor.  A motion    .  to-have the list printed "brought president  Gompers, who was hot ln the chair at'the j  time,  to  his feet and the delegates were  treated    to   a  ' three    minute   _ passionate  speech. He said it was unfair to incorporate  the  list  In  the  minutes in  that  way '__  and suggested' that a list of trade  union   _  , victories should be printed along with It.  Tie concluded by denouncing the "attempt'  to show that trade a failure."  and characterized it as an outrage. A wave  nf applauce swept .over the. convention as  Mr.   Gompers   took  his   scat.   The  motion  ,  was defeated and the recommendations of  the president were adorned except the one  referring to a general defense fund  The committee's suggestion that the fund  be raised by national and labor unlons'ln-,    '  stead  of  by"'the 'American' Federation < of .���  Labor was adopted:  The negro question came up on a resolution compelling all local unions affiliated  with theL federation to join the central  lobor bodies in their respective localities.  AVilliam Henry Clay, ono of the two colored  delegates from Virginia, made the point  that the federation last week In deciding a -  contested seat where the color line was  brought Into the question, had authorized  the creation of a separate central union In  Richmond for colored workmen. The reso-  liition was debated for more than an hour  by many delegates and was defeated.  .'  i*!

The offer of these bonds Is  embarrassing to the administration, owing  to complications which might arise if the  government acDepted them, and the piesident, it is understood, is now in correspondence with Mr. Carnegie about the matter.

CADIZ, December 12.���This city was in  a state of revolution practically all night  long. Riotous mobs, led by striking bakers, armed with knives and bludgeons,  pillaged stores, attacked people in the  streets, injured a number of persons,  threw tho town into a state of. panic and  made the night hideous with shouts of  "Long Live the Social Revolution" and  "Down with tho bourgooise." The police  were powerless to quell the disturbance.  ber 15th to express approval of thp action  of the government in dealing with the Argentine question. Even this, apparently,  is merely an offset to another meeting, promoted by tho advocates of peace at any  price.  The buying of ships to take the place of  vessels of questionable efficiency, the mobilization of the fleet for maneuvering, the  strengthening of relations -with friendly  neighbors.

Our evening contemporary reminds us of  what once was said about a certain small  insect: When you put your finger on where  he is, he isn't thero. The Colonist pointed  out that $210,000 had been saved to tho  province. The Times replied that the  Great Northern, not having got the subsidy for' the thirty miles on tho eastern  ond of Us proposed line was building a  short line- to tap the rich mlnct of the  iirovlnce and divert trafiic to its  main lino in the United States. Tho  Colonist answered that the lino would have  been built any way, and added that under  these circumstances its position in regard  to the eastern thirty miles was strengthened. Now it tells us that we held up the  Great- Northern- to-scorn~i'or-bulldlng���".V"  short link from its main line to Grand  Forks and diverting the trade of the province to tho United States." This is the  latest Great Northern hold-up and we  plead not guilty. Tt was our dearly-beloved  neighbor which drew attention to this  deeply interesting fact. We have a friendly  word for our gymnastic neighbor, and it is  that It ought not unduly to agitato itself  by seeing how far It can jump between issues. There are yet many days hefore  Polling Day, and it Is likely to strain Itself, or become "stale," to use the language of the prize ring.

"Joe"  might be all his enemies claim him yet  thnt is no reason why policy and everything else should be thrown to the winds  '"cause he approves of it.

Tt makes one tired to son representatives who have so little confidence  in one another's integrity that the movement of one man. has the power to scatter  Ihem like a flock of frightened sheop. yet  there Is not one of them who will admit  thnt he fears "Joe." Tf "Joe" ought to go  then tho rest of the outfit ought to go also,  for when representatives so distrust one  another that they dare not stand pat because they fear thoir fellows will be cajoled and befooled into some nefarious  scheme which although it may stand a  close inspection still coming from the  source it does might go off. then the sooner  the province wipes the slate and elects a  little nerve the better for all concerned.���  Trout Lake Topic.  The War Department.  When ox-president Benjamin Harrison  'lied he bequeathed to his son, colonel Rus-  ;:ol) B. Harrison, what might be called a  feud. It was his dying wiah that the soldier should not rest until ho had forced the  war department to remove the stain which  it had put upon the family name by practically dismissing colonel Harrison from  the army.  Colonel Harrison In carrying out his  father's rcqup.-t, has spent months in pre-  parntion. anil is ready now to open war.  lie declares lie "will light to the end the  unjust, unmilitary and outrageous treatment" he received from the authorities at  Washington. To equip himself for the task  he has made a thorough study of civil and  military law, and this week was admitted  to practice in the circuit -and superior  court at Indianapolis.  He was introduced to tho court by W. H.  H. -Miller, who was attorney-general in  president fl'irison's cabinet, and later a  law partner of his chief. Colonel Harrison  will at once enter the iirm.  He explained his reason for the move in  these words:  "T have long intended to take up the  practice of law, and my Intention was hastened by my'father's dying wish that I  should carry on tho light he had begun to  force justice in mv case from the war department. To take up the case properly it  was neevssary that I should have a  thorough understanding of law, and for  somo time T have devoted myself to study.  For the last eight months this has taken  all my time."  Whon colonel Harrison was appointed to  the staff general Fitzhugh Leo, at Jacksonville, in 1S.S. many persons considered  his appointment an instance of favoritism.  But. he displayed from the first the qualities "of a good soldier, and, when he was  made provost marshal ur the Seventh  Army Corps, performed his arduous and  delicate duties in a manner that won the  highest praise of his superiors. The 30,000  men subject to his authority found that he  was 'lot to be trifled with, and the.corps  soon settled into order.  His method of sobering men who had  been found drunk is "still remembered with  awe by the soldiers. He had a huge  shower hath built, and the refractory man  was held under the stream of cold water  until the effect of the liquor had worn off  and he promised to be "good."  Colonel Harrison was later appointed inspector general of Porto Rico, and in that  capacity also displayed excellent judgment.  He sr-cmed to have good prospects for earning rapid advancement as an officer. Both  ho and his friends wereamazed, therefore,  when he was notified in November, 1990,  that he had been "honorably- discharged"  from the army. As he had made no request  to be relieved of his uniform, this order  was tantamount tp a dismissal.  Angry criticism followed. It was recalled  that ex-president Harrison.had declined to  stump for the administration in the campaign just then closed on account of his  strong views against expansion, and it was  charged that the dismissal of colonel Harrison was because 'of this. Adjutant general Corbin denied that there was any personal feeling or malice in the matter, and  said the "honorable discharge" ,had been  ordered simply because the colonel's "services were "no longer required."  But the Harrisons and their friends were  never satisfied, and havo always maintained that the name, which had been illustrious in war since the revolution, had suffered aspersion. , The ex-president did not  conceal his chagrin, and was determined  that justice should be done. So colonel  Karri, on has the desire of his father to  strengthen "his own determination to get  what ho considers his rights.  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  ON THURSDAY OF  THIS WEEK WE WILL  SELL THE BALANCE  OF OUR STOCK OF  LADIES' MANTLES AND COSTUMES  AND CHILDREN'S COATS AT HALF PRICE   $  to  to WE WILL-.ALSO SHOW EXCEPTIONAL BARGAINS IN LADIES' FLANELETTE-WEAR 7I\  to GOODS   AND   PRICES  TO SUIT ALL  to '   to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  '<L  36 Baker Street, Nelson.

Tt was under  the terms of this act that the Thames  Minei'.-' Union applied io the court in respect of various grievances. Their two  chief. requirements wero snorter hours and  the establishment of a minimum wage on  a higher" scale. ������>��� The evidence extended  over some weeks, and the court was fully  convinced that any considerable increase  in ^working expenses would result: disastrously to the industry, and consequently  cause loss to the miners making the application. As regards hours of work, surface  laborers remain unaltered by.'- the award,  but with regard to underground miners in  wot shafts and hot or grassy places it is  provided that only six-hour shifts shall be  worked; tho men, therefore, do not obtain  much advantage under the award with the legal length of timo during  which work may be continued.

M, LAY, Manager,  sertion   of the   principle   of   a   minimum  wage,  although   the; scale of   charges   is  very much less than, they demanded, and  not very greatly in excess of the existing  rates.    Other ^noticeable   features   of  the  ��� ���judgment'** are   the"   provisions   that   where  work is let by. contract the same rate shall  be observed by the contractor,   and   that  subject to tin. rules of the union allowing  miners to enter the society merely by tho  payment  of  the  regulation  fee,   that  employers shall employ members of lhe union  in preference to non-union members.    The  employer of labor is thus very prejudicially  affected;  he practically cannot go outside  the union for his labor, and he is in no way  able to control the activity of. tho individual, as. the uniform rate of wages secures  to the most idle and incompetent miner as  a matter of right the same remuneration1  as his most active and skilful  co-worker.  In   this  way. the  control  essential   to   the  successful management of any business is  entirely destroyed and  industry placed at  the     mercy     of    .its     employees.

Tt may be that  'the contractors work with their men on  some co-operative plrui, or it may he that  they have more thorough, supervision than  do ihe managers "and foremen bf the companies themselves, but the fact remains  significant and surprising that putting  forth his ordinary energies the miner is  able to do so much more work that the  total cost is diminished by something like  one-third. The results obtained under tho  contract system seem to have come almost  as a surprise lo thc New Zealanders themselves, and the element of competition thus  introduced is likely to prove the salvation  of an industry which, it is clear, cannot  continue on the basis of the present demands which are made upon it.

When the remount  horses are taken out for exercise, It is not  in twos and threes, but In troops of many  hundreds.

The election of officers of the.- Nelson  Royal Arch .Chapter will be held on Wednesday evening* next.  Tli**! funeral of the late Mrs. P. F. Emerson, which was fixed for this afternoon,  has boen postponed until the arrival of  relatives. It is likely, that the funeral will  lake place on  Saturday.  The c.ise of the Lioi-i .orewcry vs William Gosnell of this city, an action over  some beer kegs, which came before chief  justice McColl at Rossland'is still in doubt,  judgment on the same having ben reserved.  P. F. Emerson was reported' to be in a  verv low condition at a late hour last evening. He is suffering from Bright's disease  with complications and the span of his  life wns considered to but a matter of  hours.     _ "'  A new jury has been subpenaed to try the  case of Hall vs. LaBau, whieh comes up  again for trial before his honor judge Forin  on Monday next. The hearing in this case  case wil have to be gone over from the  fommencemont.  James Bannernian of' uns city, who has  been appointed to Jhe ofllce of Dominion  land agent, has received instructions froni  tho department to report for duty at once  nt Kamloops. He will leave Nelson for  the Kamloops olllco on Saturday.  The members of the Canadian Mounted.  Infantry will make the trip over the Canadian Pacific railway to Montreal. From, this  point they will go over the Intercolonial,  fhe only all-Canadian'route to the Marl-  time provinces. It is expected that the  men-bars of the contingent will have about  n month's drill to put in in, Halifax before  embarking. -  A telegram was received in Nelson yesterday by Messrs. Onllihcr'& Wilson from  judge Forin announcing that the session  of the county court for li'aslo which had  been called for today had been postponed  till a' date to be fixed. Judge Forin is at'  present in Vancouver and it is not known  definitely when he will return to take up  the  county  court  work.  There was a warm time at Waneta the  other day when a prospector named Gardiner was charged with using abusive language to Taylor, the agent of the Nelson  <& Fort Sheppard railway at that place.  Gardiner is developing some prospects on  the Pond d'Oreille on the American side  of the line. He found it most convenient  to purchase his supplies from Fred Adie,  the store keeper at that point. This matter  was called to the attention of the customs  officer.nt Northport and Gardiner accused  Taylor of having interfered in his business  matters. He told Taylor what he thought  of him in language more forcible than polite, with the result that Taylor had him  charged with using abusive language. As  Adie, the grocer, is the only justice of the  peace in the vicinity the case came before  him. Ho fined the accused tl and the verdict was received with every manifestation  of public approval.  James Flndley of Montreal, who superintended the construction of the C. P. R.  bridge across the Columbia river at Roo-  son, was in Nelson yesterday. The work  is practlc?Uy finished. Asked wheiher there  h.-ii-l been "any accidents, Mr. Flnley. jokingly nnswerod, "No; I don't believe any of  lhe boys lost as much .-is a finger-nail."  The funeral of the late W. P. Robinson  took place from his residence yesterday afternoon. It was under-the direction of the  Masonic fraternity and was attended by a  large number of the members of the order.  Tho pall bearers were Hamilton Byers,  Charles H. Crandon, Thomas S. McPherson, W. J. AVilson; A. R. Sherwood and F.  L.   McFarland.  "  ��� The' election of officers for the Nelson  lodge A. F. &, A. M.; No. 23, took place on  Wednesday evening, when the following:  officers were elected: E A. Crease, W. M.;  Fred Irvine, I. P. M.; C H. Crandon, S.  W; R. W. Day, J. \V.; J. A. Turner treasurer; George Johnstone, secretary; ana  Rev. R. Frew, chaplain. The' appointive officers to be-elected by the master of the  lodge have not been- solectd as yet.  The. Kokanee, which has been on the'  v.-avs for over a month undergoing an overhauling, was slid into the water yesterday.  She had over 200 feet to slide, and captain  Gore was a trifle anxious as to thc result,  i-wt muster ship ' builder Bulger did tho  job up in style, and the Kokanee slid into  the water ns prettily'as she did on the  ���.lay when Mr. Bulger first launched her.  She will be ready tti resume her run to  S'aslo   on   Tuesday   or   Wednesday.  It is reported that the London & British  Columbia." Goldfields will make an experiment with the new process of oil concentration for the saving of values in the ore  of the Enterprise mine on Ten-mile. The  results attained with the present concentrating plant are said to be rather unsatisfactory as considerable of the values in  the dry-ore escape. It-Is predicted for the  process of oil concentration that the great;  er part of the values that are lost in the  water concentration can be saved by the  former. _  '      '  .The performance of the Chimes.of Normandy by the members of the Nelson Operatic Soclet/ last evening was witnessed  by a larger audience than that which  greeted .'t on the opening night. The production last - evening went off much  smoother, the performers evidently feeling, more at home. The plan for this evening opens at McDonald's fruit store at 10  -o'clock���andHn-view-of-the-success-which-  tbe members of the society'have scored  the sale of seats should be greater than  lhat of either of the first two performances..' ,  Bill Feeney, who Is uetter known as  "Canada Bill," Is at present engaged in  nutting a bridge over Sheep creek, at a  point off the Yellowstone road some miles  from Salnm. Bill has taken up some 000  acres of land In this neighborhood and  lias interested 'the provincial government  In the construction of a bridge over thc  creek. This involves the construction of a  structure for a width of 140 feet, with a  d'.ieen truss spanning u width of 58 feot.  The arrangements for the building of the  bridge arc the best* that could be made,  as Bill understand bridge building as well  as anyone. He has a steel cable rigged up  for the moving .of his* timbers across-the.  river and in-every way the work is going  ahead as methodically as if lt was in  charge of a government enginer. The.Fee-  ney land Is about eight miles from the  town of Salmo and Bill nas prepared quarters for the, housing of his family in comfort.' It is the intention of Feeney to put  the land In timothy and in connection with  this he will raise considerable stocK.  W. A. McLean has returned from Waneta,. where he was engaged In'the superintendence of the construction of the cut-off  to the Bunker Hill property on the Pend  d'Oreille. The cut-off is three and-a half  miles long and will greatly facilitate the  moving of supplies to the proporty. '-AVork  upon the Blinker- Hill Is shortly to be resumed and arrangements' are now' being  made for the Installation of a new process  for the treatment of the ore,, which' has  been found to be in a measure refractory.  In the meantime development work on the  property is to be resumed and when the  eleotrlcal-cyanlde process is Installed there  will be considerable, ore reserves for treat-  mnt. The ledge in the Bunker HH1 Is very  wide, and as the ore has an indicated value  of $10 per ton, there .will be good values In  it if the new process proves satisfactory.  All the values of the. Pend d'Oreille valley  are not summed up In Its mining possibilities. ;It Is possessed of great possibilities  in the way of ranching.
