 3hf  /  1?  V  h  ��-  ESTABLISHED  1892  MONDAY MOKN1KG,  DECEMBER  9   1901  WEEKLY EDITION  FOBD'SREVIEW  NOW LONDON IS OPTIMISTIC ON WAR MATTERS.  GOOD REPORTS  EXPECTED PROM  KITCHENER THIS WEEK-GERMANY AND AMERICA.  P V  NEW YORK, December 7.���I. N.  Ford, cables as follows:. "It is expected that lord Kitchener will have a  satisfactory "bag" to report'as a result  of the week's work of the-British columns in South Africa. Rightly or  wrongly, the impression is again in the  ascendancy that 'the war is nearing a  close. With this' view comes the revival of tho anticipation that the posi-  ton will be so far clear by the time the  government wants more money that it  will be found possible to raise a Transvaal 3 per cent loan guaranteed by the  imperial government and that no further issue of consols will be necesary.  Meanwhile an official dispatch from  Calcutta reporting briefly the result of  operations against the Mahhuds comes  as a reminder to Englishmen that they  aie engaged in another little war on  the Indian frontier. Router's dispatch  reporting 25 British troops killed or  wounded reads" uncommonly like a  "regrettable incident."  IMPORTS AND EXPORTS..  The board of trade returns for November show further heavy declines in  British trade. Imports have decreased  ��2,923,177 and exports ��1,728,213.  The increase in imports is distributed  over almost every branch of trade aiid  the result is that tbe aggregate for the  year o date- which has hitherto kept  ahead of the 1900 figures, has now fallen  ��1.770,000. Exports have this redeeming feature, that for the low price of  coal thc decrease would have been much  less as, although the value of the coal  Iisipped is down ��1,360,000, there Is  only a diminuation in quantity of 590,-  .000 tons.  GERMANY   AND -AMERICA.  An article in the Saturday Review on  Germany as an American power, is  attracting some attention. The Review takes the view and not for the first  time, that the immense growth of German population in Brazil implies inevitably German interference in that  country and a conflict with the United  States. Tlie article goes on to say:  With friendly Germany posted in South  America and Joyal Canada in North  America we could hold the United States  in some kind of check. With Germany  forever eliminated from tho political  hcess board in the new world we should  with our present policy of admitting the  unbridled pretensions of the United  States everwhere one day find ourselves elbowed out forever both from  North and South America. Germany  established in South America would  not .effect  the development of Canada,  but the empire of~tlie_United_States"  commanding the inter-ocean canal holding Central America n free and dominating the south with a Chinese wall  of tariffs all round would ultimately  force Canada in self defence to amalgamate with it.  BETTER   PASSENGER   SERVICE.  For some time past the Liverpool  Atlantic passenger companies have been  negotiating with the London and Northwestern Railway with a view to gaining more luxurious trains between Liverpool and London. The result of these  rerpscutations, supported by the American consul, js satisfactory and yesterday the flrst train ()e luxe left Riverside station n Liverpool,  QUEEN'S CORONATION ROBES,  The designs for the queen's coronation robes have been finally decided on  by her majesty. The task has been no  easy one, as both the historical records and the precedents had to be consulted. A short time since, the king,  hearing that tlie robes worn by ^MQen  Adelaide, were in excellent state of preservation and were kept as heirlooms  at Brodie castle, commanded that they  should be brought to Marlbouough  house for the queen's inspection ftnd  guidance. The material of which they  were made is of black velvet manufactured on hand looms and finished robes  are elaborately embroidered and laced  with gold trimmings. The kings cape,  the most magnificent .cape which will  be worn at the ceremony, will be decorated with silver eagles and shamrocks  nad thistles, will be worked into the-  general design. The fleur de lis has a;  nptable historic significance as it point*  to "��luf days when English kings were  proclaimed riders ol France. The.gown  and jewels will !}���? specially arranged  for the occasion. The presioys atones,  which consist of diamonds, rubies,  pearls, sapphires and emeralds, will!  number 6190, and includes the famous  ruby which the king of Castile presen-  was suted to tho Black prince in 1367  and was subsequently worn by Henry  V at Agincourt. It is stated that  Alien Alexandra meditates signalizing  the coronaton by indicating a scheme  to help the hosptal fund by her illus-  trioushusband. This would take the  |orm of a direct appeal to the women  of England. Certain hospital author-  ii 'S, it is added, have been made aware  of the queen's purpose, and they are  naturally gratified at such fuither indication of royal sympathy with their  cause.  ONE OF THE CEREMONIES  Not the least interesting of the many  ceremonies that London will witness  j-exi J. n. wil be tho turning of the  first s >d for the queen Victoria memorial by king Edward in the presence  of his j.Mi"jts gathered from all parts  of the world. The happy idea of beginning this undertaking at the time  of the coronation originated with his  majesty, who considered tha the presence in England of &o many foreign  notabilities would prove an opportunity  that the nations of the world would  gladly seize to pay tribute to the memory to the late queen, it s regarded as  practically setled that the presents accepted by the prince and princess of  Wales in the course of their recent tour  through the colonies will exhibited.  Little, however, has been arranged in  the affair, and the exhibition will certainly not take place for several weeks.  A- precedent likely to be follower  would point to the imperial institute  as the first center at which the presents  would be shown and their is a probability of a subsequent exhibition of  the colonial gifts in the east and possibly in two or three of the leading  provincial cities.  ANOTHER UNFAIR CRITICISM  By the Canadian Mining Review.  A few weeks ago Ine Tribune published a reply to certain strictures on  the Granby company which appeared in  the August, number of the Canadian  Mining Review. The November number  of the same journal again deals with  this subject, devoting to it nearly two"  of its pages. E. Jacobs of Greenwood,  who is the regular staff correspondent  of The Tribune - in t Boundary district,  wrote the first reply to the Review article, and his peply to that, journal's second, article is as follows:  It appears to me, though, that there  is exhibited such trickiness in attributing unreasonable delay in my previous  reply and in other matters, and such a  juggling of words and figures in the  statements made in the latter number  as compared-with the former, that to  fully expose these would require that 1  use more.,of your space than would be  reasonable to ask for. For "instance; the  Review's criticism was published in the  October issue of the B. C. Mining Record and my reply in the November  number. The Review says there was an  unaccountable lapse of time, but how  could I reply earlier to that monthly  journal? Similarly, were it worth while,  I could give satsfactory reasons for my  letter not havng appeared in your paper  until early in October.  As to juggling of words and figures���  the.Review says in November, "Our  August article commeiite"cl upon a reported sugestion for the increase in the  capital of the company," whilst the  words actually used in August were,  the announcement that the Granby people contemplate an increase," etc.; also,  "the stock the directors are apparently  bent on increasing and which in any case  they are offering the public as an attractive investment." Again, the August number stated that "the representatives- of this company, Messrs. Graves  and White, were in New York negotiat-  -ing-for-the-sale-of-the-propcrty.-^-and-  that the Amalgamater Copper Company  ���"could not be induced to give as much  as two million dollars for the property"  <Jand there was no printer's error, for  the "two millions" were printed in  words, not In figures). The November  number says "the Review has never  contended that the directors, as a body,  were trying to sell"���a seeming subterfuge, surely. In this connection I remark that the Review's informant, upon  whom it has since placed the responsibility for the August statements, is now  claiming that $12,000,000 was the price  mentioned in August, .appears to be  taking refuge in a misstatement, for we  have the Review's editorial assurance  that its correspondent mado a mistake,  hence its printing the words "two million dollars." Still again, in August the  Review stated that the total expenditure  in cash for the purchase and development of the mining properties and for  the smelter," does not exceed one million dollars." In November its words  are "a property upon which one million  and a half of dollars have been spent."  Let me here anticipate a possible quibble by giving reminder that Mr. Miner's  circular relative to the expenditure of  $200,000 during last summer ante-dated  the Review's first noticed criticism, published at the close of August.  But getting away from the Review's  juggling tactics, and making only this  passing reference to what, that journal  is pleased to designate "the principles  which governed it in publishing any  comments upon this company"���that  two of these three, were not even mentioned in its flrst. criticism���I come .to  what I assume to be, ih the opinion of  the Review or its Nelson informant, the  three main points to be considered. As  to these I submit that in regard to:  1(). Excessive capitalization: Neither  the Review nor the stockholders seem  to have made'a vigorous protest, if indeed, any at all, at the proper time, viz.,  prior to |*he carrying out of the consolidation. This is a situation this district had no part in bringing about, so  it is.not greatly concerned whether the  nominal-capital be excessive, as alleged,  or not.  (2). Publication of information as to  costs, -values and -returns: This, too,  is a matter about which this district has  little.or no complaint to make. If, as  alleged, eastern stockholders be persistently denied information they are en  titled   to,   they   surely   have   a  legal  remedy.  (3). The average value per ton of the  ore treated. In this matter the district  is interested, and deeply, too. ,-Mr. Miner  has reiterated that the ore .Is yielding  a profit and he, if. anyone knows. In  August the Review said: "If, as is currently believed by those in the best position to judge the average gross value  of the ore treated does not exceed ?5,  it is .doubtful if operations are not being carried on at a positive loss." In  November it said editorially: "On close  inquiry we have ascertained that the  gross assay value of the ore has increas-  er since the beginning of the year, and  that for the last six months of the present year it may have reached.the figure  of $7 per ton." 'Our correspondent claims  that the average realized value of the  ore is not over ?5 per ton." The correspondent himself says "the average realized yield of the ore treated for the  past three months is not more than $4."  Now, where are we at? First, the gross  value does not exceed ?&���; next, it may  have reached $7; then the correspondent is stated to claim that the average-  realized value is not over $5; finally;;  the correspondent asserts that the av-;;  erage realized yield is not more -than'  $4, and to cap the lot comes the editorial dictum that "the question of  whether the average assay value of the  ore be $5 or $7 per ton is entirely beside  the mark." And this last assertion,  too, in regard to a mine in which, with  its enormous tonnage,' a difference of  even twenty-five cents a ton, not to say  ?2, would largely determine-whether or  not it-could be operated at a profit. Is  this a fair sample of the criticism, put  forth as authoritative, ot a journal pretentiously claiming to be the "representative exponent of the mining industries of Canada." If so we may  thank the gods that its circulation in  the Boundary district is extremely  small, whatever it may be in the east  where t he existence of prejudice and  ignorance of western mining conditions  are not so easily detected as in the  mining districts of British Columbia.  Just a few reflections in conclusion.  The Review's later editorial utterances  relative to the value of the Granby  mines ore suggest that similar "close  inquiry" should have been made���and  probably iii the absence of- prejudice  would have'been���before publishing the  August allegations, so materially qualir  fled ��� in November. Next, the query  seems natural��� how is it possible in  the face of the Review's allegation as  to the "secrecy maintained about the  working of the property" for the anonymous Nelson mining engineer to ascertain "both by inspection and inquiry"  accurate and reliable information" about  values.-We--have his* own word for it  that it is refused by'those in authority.  Does he obtain it surreptitiously? and  if so, is it the custom of the Review to  encourage mining engineers to spy  about mines and smelters and to obtain  by foul means information not accessible to those who scori all but fair  means? Again, is tins instance of "no  case, so bully the witness," by insinuation, innuendo and thinly veiled disparagement? Lastly, its references to  "western boom sheets." My reply to the  Review's first article was published  successively in The Tribune, the Vancouver News-Advertisoivthe B. C. Mining Record, and the New York Mining  and Engineering Journal. Are these  boom sheets? If so what of the Canadian Mining Review, which to my  knowledge in 1896-7 accepted 2500 shares  of stock (no cash) for twelve months'  advertising o f a Boundary company's  mining claims of then unknown value,  which venture, afterwards proved a  disappointment and loss to those who  put money into it, comparatively little  development���work���having���meanwhile  been done on the claims.  Give us fair criticism; well-informed  and without prejudice; and, too, by men  not afraid to disclose their identity. We  may not relish hard hitting, but we at  least respect the man who has the  courage of his opinions and does not  snipe us from ambush. As to stocks:  Eastern people may manipulate them if  opportunity be given and it suit them to  do so, and squeal, too, as some of them  are apt to do if they cannot get dividends in the growing time of our mining ndustry.. But when t comes to the  successful transformation of a surface  cropping of mineral into a big mine���  well, we in the Boundary care not  whether success be attained by men  who are simply well experienced and  thoroughly practical miners or by professional mining engineers privileged  to spread their yellow-encased legs under the somewhat exclusive mahogany  of the Nelson cub, so long as it be attained, and wo extend the glad right  hand of appreciation to the one as readily as to the other.  Wandered Away While Delirious  WINNIPEG, December 7.���The bartender of the Royal hotel, who has been  ill for some time, got up from his bed  about midnight last night and putting  on his clothes escaped from the house  without being seen. Meeting a couple  of acqaintances on the street he started  to run after them, but they caught up  before he had gone far and^asked what  was the matter. After hesitating for  some time he replied that he was going  ot the river to drown himself. A little  later he bolted from his friends and  escaped twards the Red river. At an  early hour this morning nothing had  been heard of him.  This morning about 8:30 the dead  body of the bartender was found behind Kemp Bros, manufactory, L,omb^r-4  street with a gash on his' right wrist.  The unfortunate man's name is Pierre  Lapierre and he came to* Winnipeg  from tho cty of Quebec about eghteen  years ago.  Max O'Rell (Pan! Bluett) the  French writer and lecturer, is sick  in New York.  \  BONUS SECUBEB  NEW VIgTOR GROUP WILL  BE?0PENED UP.  ��  WILD HORSE FREE MILLING PROSPECT FROM WHICH BIO RETURNS ARE EXPECTED.  Davio Boot!) leaves for- Ymir today.-to  commence work upon the New Victor  group' ot.. claims on Wild Horse creek  upon\n��nicl|,4 "the - has   just   secured   a  lease/s'jandlvwQrking' r bond.' There   are  ^hreejclaiihs!~ln.,'-this group���New Vic-  rtgr^l.Royal, and- Excelsior���which   ad-  * jblfis the - well-known Wilcox - property.  There' has. ben  considerable  prospecting work fdony. .upon this property and  the   indicatioi^: are   that   the   ledges  upon it cary- good values in free milling ore.    ': .\  The bond secured by Mr. Booth upon  the property calls for the payment of  ?20,000. , TheVrfirst payment of $5000  falls".due on. July- 1st, the second of an  equal amount -three months later , and  hte balance on; January 1st, 1903. The.  bond is considered a very advantageous  one, but it is;-not likely that "it could  have< been, secured by anyone else,-"as  the holder ofjlt���Mr. Booth���is one of  ���the principal owners! n the property.  The work done upon the..New. Victor,  consists of a "shaft sunk 95 feet on the  hanging wall of one of the ledges. This  work has developed three feet of -gold  ore which Mt' is predicted will average  ?10 to the' ton', in "free milling values,"  in addition to'^which there' is a pay  streak of very1,-rich ore from 8 to 10  inches ���; widef On the Royal claim a  crosscut'- tunnel'" was- started for. a*  ledge which outcropped on he surface,  contribute to \i% development. It is now  in some 18 feet, 'but is as yet fully 50  feetfrom-the ledge which it was started*  ot ut.      -.    .  j-y  The principal showing on the group,  and' the. one���whioh prompted- Mr. Booth  to take'up'.itsf development "was uncovered ori the. New-Victor last fall. This  occurs on a different" ledge from that  upon which thc shaft was sunk and  so far nothing but surface work has  been done upon it. This consists of a  number of open cuts, about 50 feet  apart, for a total distance of 500 feet,  throughout the whole of which the new  ledge appears strong. The surface work  done upon it indicates the presence of  three feet of good paying quartz with  a pay streak of 18 inches, the averaga  "of which gave assay returns of $82 in  gold and some eight ounces in silver.  It is upon this showing that Mr. Booth  will do his first work and he proposes  to commence work witli a crew of six  men. To get any depth upon this ledge  will necessitate driving a crosscut tunnel some 150 feet.   ���  Work is going on in a-quiet way upon  a number of properties in the Ymir  district. A small crew of men is still  at work upon the' Wilcox and considerable has been sacked at the property  _awaiting_snow*_for_shipping   Above the New -Victor group the  Golden Monarch company of Spokane  has a force of 20 men.at work on the  Foghorn. On this property a shaft has  been sunk for 65 feet which has opened  up 5 feet of quartz for which is claimed  an assay value of over $50 to the ton.  This ledge is also being opened up'  by means of a short tunnel from which  considerable ore has been taken out and  will be shipped this winter. The management of the property is now driving a long crosscut to catch this ledge  nt depth and three shifts aro at work  upon it, the tunnel being now in a distance of 160 feet.  Among the other properties in the  district upon which work is beinn: carried on nre the Union Jack on Porcupine creek, upon which 8 men are  working, and the Shiloh.

NEW YORK, December 7.���For a  long time there has been much optimistic feeling with regard to the war,  says a London dispatch to the Tribune.  For days past, rumors of peace negotiations have been current in various  quarters and these have hot dispersed  by lord Kitchener's official confirmation  of the report that, a large number of  Boers have been captured in the Transvaal. This important work seems to  have been the work of major Wools  Sampson. This officer's admirable  handling of the troops at Braackslagt  after colonel Benson was mortally  wounded rebounded very much to his  credit and his capture of the Boer  laager southwest.  Lynch Promises Fealty.  NEW YQRK, December 7���A telegram to the London Times from Dublin says that colonel Arthur Lynch who  fought for the Boers and who was recently returned to parliament for Galway city, has written to the electors of  that constituency thanking them for  his election. He promises to discharge  his parliamentary duties with his eyes  directed toward the welfare of Galway  and Ireland. The letter, however, does  not contain any reference to colonel  Lynch's proposed action in the near  future.   *  Episcopalians' New Bible,  NEW YORK, December 6.���A new  bible authorized by the late general  convention in San Francisco, to be read  in all Episcopal churches in the United  States, has been in process of completion by the committee on marginal  readings, which has sat at the Episcopal  general seminary in this city since last  Tuesday and will conclude its work tomorrow, says the Times. It was stated  that an English firm has promised to  undertake the publication of this bible  without* expense to the committee. The  new bible is to consist of the text and  renderings of the king James' version,  the renderings of the English revision  and the renderings of the recent American revisions. The renderings of the  Episcopal committee were ordered to be  printed in an appendix for pres.ervation.  The late convention, while it praised  the scholarship of its own commission,  did not place their work upon the same  level as that of the revisers, who had  Included lay scholars, and who had  spent many years at the work, besides  being far larger in numbers.' The new  bible Insures the very late renderings,  although the reading of them is permissive only, not obligatory.  THE LAND OF THE COLOSSAL  Max O'Rell on the United States '  ���Here I am in the United States-for  the seventh time. My first visit was  paid fourteen years ago, in 1887. Since  that day, what changes, what fairylike  transformations! It is like phantasmagoria.- In 1887 the population of  America was sixty millions; now it is  over seventy. In fifty years' time it will  be two hundred millions. Yea, the land  !of the colossal, the land of intelligence,  the land of light. In Europe they will  no .longer receive the light from the  East; they will have it from the West.  As before,  I find all the Americans  :at the wheel, almost recovered from a  tragedy that shocked tne world and obtained- for them the deepest sympathy  of.the most, exalted in the land, as well  as the lowest.   But America cannot stop  for the insane crime of a lunatic; ,she  'has her mission to fulfill; forward���she  must go on.   Rich and poor, young and  , old���ryes, all, with the exception perhaps  ,of,.avfew Anglo-maniacs "whom the Old*  ��� World call gentlemen and the New One  loafers.  On my first visit the, Americans had  "all built monumental blocks of fifteen  and sixteen stories; today I find some in  New York with thirty and thirty-two.  If they go a little higher up still t.he  Americans will have only a step to walk  into the sojourn of the Seraphim. For  that matter all things are explained.  New York is built on a narrow island  having the shape of a tongue from south  to north. It is impossible to get extension toward the east or west, so in  the business quarters, they spread- in  the only region of space which is disengaged���that is, toward the firmament.  Of course I cannot say that America  interests me now as much as it did formerly. The novelty has worn off a bit.  I am beginning to see things American  with eyes almost American, instead of  seeing them with those of the "intelligent foreigner." I no longer want to  be guided, and I no longer run the risk  of being guyed.  During my flrst visits I received light  impressions." which amused me and in-  war indemnity imposed on France by  Germany in 1870, and probably more.  The papers announce the amalgamation of two great railroad lines. In  future the new company will control  over 10,000 miles. The financier who  brought about this amalgamation is a  man who could buy, u they were on  sale, the Louvre museum and the Are  de Triomphe.  And how do these billionaires live?  Well, every one in this world lives according to his own fancy. Some lead  a life that might be envied by the European sovereigns.. Others prefer living  like little bourgeois retired from business. Some have trains and steamers  of ��� their own; others take the street  car. Some pay their cooks ten thousand dollars a year; others eat a chop  for luncheon.  But for the colossal, give me American journalistic enterprise. Give me  newspaper proprietors who from New  York run papers in Chicago and San  Francisco, and who, in order to do so,  have private telegraphic lines stretching  from one end to the other of this huge  .continent at a yearly cost of $50,000.  On the 1st of this November the Paris  Figaro published an article of mine entitled   "A   New   Education   to   Start."'  Three days ago I received a Butte (Montana) paper of the next day, the 2nd of  November, containing an editorial of a  whole column on the Figaro article.  Ex uno disce omnes.  From such an insignficant thing as an  article of  mine  judge what American  journalism  can do in  the presence of  great events.    I have heard of cables  costing tens of thousands of dollars.  The Americans are well served. The  earth is theirs. ��� "All. they lack yet is a  bit of ivory on old walls. But this, if  necessary, thev. will, manufacture as  easily as cobwebs' are manufactured for  wine merchants and hotel keepers..  IT SUBPRISED AIM  GRANBY SMELTER PROVED  A REVELATION. '���  REPRESENTATIVE OF THEJ AMERICAN METAL COMPANY; VISITS THE BOUNDARY.  GRAND FORKS, Decern ber 8.���(Spec- . :'  ial to Thei Tribune.)��� Mr.' Ste'/nfiitlfc"'"'ir.'^*  of the American Metal Company of Neff J"^-^  York has left here for Phoenix. In anZ.Yf-ff  interview he said:   "I came'west with/"**-1''Zr[  -' ...  ���terested me, and which also seemed to  entertain the Americans who were kind  enough to allow me to communicate  them to them. Today I have opinions,  and a fairly good knowledge of the country; and the opinions of a foreigner on  the nation he visits have much less  value than those of the natives.- Impressions and opinions are very different things. The impression of a fair-  minded and fairly intelligent foreigner  are always interesting, and the fresher  they are the cmore piquant they read.  When, fourteen years ago, I was beholding men walking in Broadway,  frowning, careworn, tired looking, l remember that I exclaimed: "Poor devils, they are on a round of calls on  friends who live at 538 East 125th street;  892 West 138th street, and, maybe,  2354 West 162nd street. By George, so  would I look frowning and careworn if  1 had to remember all these combinations of figures!"  That was an impression. Now, when  I look at the same men, I say to myself: "So many men who do not know  whether they will be ruined or will be  millionaires today at four o'clock."  And by the side of all those preoccupied faces I see pass, as before, cheerful,  smiling, smart women, regular Paris-  iennes in gait and elegance, wearing all  the latest fashions of beautiful Paris,  handsome, well-made, supple, with eyes  dazzling with intelligence, beautifully  corseted, gloved and shod, the whole  crowned with magnificient hats, proudly  planted on the top of the most beautiful  heads in the world.  Was it not the other day that Andrew  Carnegie gave ten millions to found  scholarships in the four universities of  Scotland? This great American millionaire philanthropist's hobby is to be  found in free libraries. He establishes  them everywhere/in America and especially in his dear native land of Scotland.  "I have two hundred and fifty millions yet to distribute before my death,"  he said only the other day. He evidently Intends to start the next world  as he started this one���with little or  nothing.  ���The word millionaire, of course,  cannot now convey an exact idea of the  fortune of American plutocrats. We  must invent a word and say billionaire.  The Oil King of America possesses as  much money as would have paid the  -���:::*3-.  No Chance of a Visitor From Mars  Unless you have a longer than ordinary lease of life there is little hope  that you will live to shake hands with  a visitor from Mars.  The fascinating possibility of communication with this much-talked of  planet has been given ��� a solar plexus  blow by the 'eminent astronomer, sir  Robert Ball, now lecturing in this  country.  The likelihood of signalling to Mars  has been so often discussed -and- intertwined with so much of a network of romance and speculation that sir Robert  Ball's plain statement that it is an impossibility is causing a popular sensation.        ��� " _ ...   ��   " ' It is liis array of figures .that makes  sir Robert's statements impressive.  Mars, he points out, is one hundred.and  fifty times as far away as the moon,  and it is difficult enough to get accurate information about the surface of  the moon. Any building on earth  would have to be at least one hundred  and fifty times as long and as broad as  it is before an inhabitant of Mars, with  as powerful as telescope as we have on  earth today, might happen to see it  even if he were looking in this direction  and the atmosphere was unusually  clear.  Using the modern methods of military signalling with flags, it would require a flag at least 300 miles long, 200  miles wide, attached to a pole 500 miles  long, to be waved to and fro before an  inhabitant of Mars looking through his  sryglass would be impressed with the  idea lhat there was anything unusual  going on. Or, if the imagination could  conceive of Lake Superior filled with  petroleum and set on fire, the great  blaze might appear as a speck of light  to an inhabitant of Mars who happened  the object of making' afiother tour of  the   Boundary   country,   of   which   wei  hear so much of in New York, but primarily' to ascertain by personal observa-,  tion the prospects of the Granby company in the way of quantity of output,  of matte or blister copper and to in--  spect' its ore reserves' at Phoenix.

Tlie so-called "canals" on Mars, discredited as such of late years, are, according to sir Robert, canals after all.  He says that they are not the work of  nature, becauso nature does not work on  straight lines. These canals with tho assured existence of arctic and tropical  regions, sir Robert said, arc indications that human life is existent on  Mars. No permanent water and no river  can be discerned on Mars. What astronomers sec are straight lines, or rather  lines falling in circles around the  globe. These aro undoubtedly canals in  a great state of development. It is not  known that these canals carried off the  ice and snow that melted during the  sjimmer season, but it is a fact that the  observation of the canals is clearer at  the season of the year when it may be  assumed that tlie snow and ice are melting.  Wcn't Consent to Transfer.  NEW YORK, Dcember 7.���The high  court of justice, chancery division, has  declined to consent, to the proposed  transfer of the life department of the  Atlas Assurance Company to the Pelican Life Insurance, says a dispatch to  the Journal of Commerce, from London. The terms of the arrangement  would have relieved the Atlas capital  from" all liability under the life policies of the Atlas. It is intimated that  tbis complication may be a serious  stumbling block in the way of the consummation of the Phoenix-Atlas amalgamation.  'Shipment'From'Molly^Huffhes Property,-  Harry Sh^ra of New  Denver was0 in  Nelson yesterday on his way home fronii;"'  the Trail smelter, .where   'he   and his -  partners in the Molly Hughes property,'-  .have, just delivered another car of high  grade ore. The returns from this ship- '  ment have not yet been received,  but  from  thre former cars it is ' expected  that the 20  tons will  net the owners,  something over    $1000    after deducting,  freight   and    treatment.      The    Molly  Hughes 'output is a dry ore with silver  and  gold  vclnes.   In  all  62  tons' have  been    shipped   to    the   Trail    smelter, -  which   after   deducting   a   freight   and  treatment rate of $14.50 per ton netted  the   owners   -something   over   $3000.   It  is understood that a reduction of $5.50  has been made by Harry Sheran of New  Denver was in Nelson yesterday on way  home from the Trail smelter, where he  and his partners in the Mollie Hughes  property   have   just   delivered   another  car of high grade ore. The returns from  this  shipment   have   not  yet - been   re-  cpived. but from the returns from three,  former cars it is expected  that the 20  tons will  net the    owners    somethins*;  over  ? 1000 after deducting freight and  treatment  Misleading Maxims.  Perhaps no maxims are so mislead- -  ing to the judgment of those .who implicitly believe them as those which  assert what is absolutely true actually  and very often false metaphorically.  For instance: "Where there's smoke  there's fire" and "Straws show which  way the wind blows." If by smoke wo  understand scandal and gossip, then  there is often a good deal of very nasty  smoke and no fire at all. Neither, metaphorically speaking, do straws show  which way the wind blows, for such aro  tho cross-currents of character that  you can seldom judge of it3 general  trend by a trivial action. A man may  save a penny and yet not be mean, or  throw away a pound without being  generous or even habitually extravagant.  Take, for instance, the common Yorkshire    saying,    "When    in    doubt    do  nought."    How  very  seldom  the  principle therein contained can be applied  with advantage. How many weak wills,  we should like to know, has this pestilential little proverb contributed to par-:  alyze? "All things happen to those who';,  wait"���and   so   they   do   wait,   till   the;  only thing which is sure to happen to .  every one does happen, and they die.  Cculd they but have realized that "he  who hesitates is lost" contains far more*  truth than its opposite they might have  done something in life.    Not that this  energetic   assertion    of   an   occasional;  fact is by any means a sure guide. Who  is not familiar with the man who never  hesitates before any decision and nearly  always   laments   his   precipitation,   usually aloud?   Who has not got tired of  imploring such a one to make the best  of a bad job or of suppressing the obvious comment of "We told you so?"  All the same, believers in a motto which  spurs  them  into  foolish   action  seems  to  do better in  the race of life than  those    who     rely    upon    one    which  preaches   nothing   but   caution.     And-  hasty people generally seem  to arrive  at their goal, in however bad condition.  ' i.

Is  not such a proceeding by the judge  government by injunction and a substitute for trial by jury?  If judges can create new offenses unknown to the statutes, prejudge defendants by anticipation, convict them  without trial by jury and prescribe penalties out of hand for acts not prohibited by law, the guarantees contained  in the constitution are of no avail. If  the courts are correct in construing the  right of injunction as they have done of  late, there is nothing to prevent an autocratic judiciary from making' still  further encroachments upon the liberty  of the individual.���Philadelphia North  American.   The Tinhorns Are Worse.  Nowadays we hear a lot of the cruel  way in which the capitaliststic class  puts the screws down oi the thumbs of  the poor man yet its mighty little we  hear of the oppression exercised by the  nimble fingered fraternity called "tinhorns" on the same hapless creation. It  is a fact that these gentry get-away  with more of the miner's hard earned  dollars than capital squeezes out of  him. Yet, it is rarely you hear him  kicked at although: there 'is not one in  ten of the men who go up against him  who do not know that he is not taking  any more chances than is necessary to  preserve the fineness of his graft.���  Trout Lake Topic.  1 <��\\.<  Lord Strathcona and Mount Royal ...President  Hon.

Owing to breakages and other mishaps in moving Tho Tribune plant from  tho Burns block on East Baker street  to the McDonald building on West  Baker street, there may be shortcom-  nigs for a day or two. The Tribune,  however, will appear every day in some  form, and within a week everything  Will be running in shipshape.  The assertion by the Canadian Mining Review of Ottawa that the reply to  ���its strictures on the Granby company's  methods of doing business was published   in   "boom   sheets"   will   not   hold  water.   There are no more conservative  newspapers   in   the   country   than  the  Vancouver   News-Advertiser   and   The  Tribune, and the B. C. Mining Record  of Victoria and the Mining and Engineering Journal of New Yory have never  been classed as "boom" journals.   So far  as The Tribune is concerned, during the  ���nine years It has: been  published,  its  owners  and  managers  have  never  received directly or indirectly one dollar  for  the  publication   or  suppression   of  news relating to mines or mining companies.   It has printed hundreds of col-  *-urnis ��� of. mining news, and no prospector, miner? mine manager, mine owner,  or company promoter was  ever asked  for money, either directly or indirectly,  for   either   publishing   or   suppressing  news.    Undoubtedly, some of the news  printed could be construed as "boom,"  and some of it, no doubt, was unreliable;  but the inten was good as far as  The Tribune was concerned.   No special  credit is deserved for adopting and adhering to such a policy; but no man has  ���/aver lost a dollar in mining ln British  Columbia through wilful or paid-for  misrepresentations appearing in The  Tribune.  The Tribune is in possession of information that goes to show that the  Fetcher-Selous combine have been a  trifle hasty in asking the people to vote  them $10,000 purposes. No such sum  is needed according to their own showing, and it is known that the government is disposed to treat Nelson at  least not unfairly as compared with  its more than fair treatment of Rossland. The ?10,000 for the publis schools,  the $50000 for the isolation hospital (the  one thing that alderman Selpus is  "sweet" on), and the $5000 for the fire  alarm system were introduced for only  one purpose, and that purpose was to  try and defeat the endorsement of the  $150,000 for the electric power plant,  tl remains to be seen whether the property owners of Nelson will allow themselves to be "jobbed" in the interests  of the West Kootenay Power & Light  oCmpany.  Mackenzie & Mann seem to have  trouble with labor everywhere. The  contractors who are building their roads  through Ontario and Manitoba complain  of-the-way-j/n-which-they-are-treated-  and they seem to be the only silver-lead  mine operators in British Columbia who  are not working their mines because of  an unwillingness to pay the standard  rate of wages. At one time "Bill" Mackenzie and "Dan" Mann were considered pretty decent men with which to  do business, but, eveidently, since becoming capitalists they are like nine out  o�� ten capitalists in this respect: They  dislike to see anyone make a dollar except themselves.  More Chinese Murders.  SAN FRANCISCO December 7.���Another Chinese has been murdered as a  result of the Wong Chin family feud  in Chinatown.

Thus, periodically, he locks up  more than is wise in bricks and mortar  and steel. Even in his prudent moods  he does not keep much actual cash, but  he likes to keep his capital growing. He  does not believe in gut-edge security,  except for insurance companies and savings banks, because capital does not increase fast enough in 3 per cent stuff.  His admirers have been asserting that  he is going to be a great banker, if he  is not one already. Probably he will be,  some time, but that time is distant.  James M.

Increase of Government Injunction.  The pointed commems of judge Tuley  before the Iroquois Club of Chicago  upon the rapid development of government injunction cannot fail to arrest  the attention of the thoughtful. With  he past twelve months judges in the  United States and Canada have been  particularly busy reading new theories  'into the law which they are supposed  to interpret. In their eagerness to exercise authority at critical moments  they have arrogated to themselves not  only the right of the legislative power  to make laws but the duty of the administrative branch of the government  to enforce them. The fashion having  once been set, there has grown a sort of  rivalry betwen the courts of equity as  to which one can go the farthest. Thc  process of the usurpation of power by  the judiciary is thus briefly described  by judge Tuley:  The judge, without hearing the defendant, decrees what he shall or shall  not do in advance and without a hearing, enforces the performance of the  commands of the writ, then brings the  SAVINGS BANK DEPARTMENT:  Interest allowed on deposits.

WASHINGTON, December 8.���Publicity, which is president Roosevelt's  theory of the legislation best adapted  to restrict the trust evil, is provided for  upon an elaborate scale in a bill introduced by representative Littlefield of  Maine. It requires all corporations engaged in interstate commerce "to file  returns with the secretary of the treasury disclosing ..their true financial condition, and of their capital stock, and  imposing a tax upon surh as have outstanding capital stock unpaid in whole  or n part."  Before September 1st of each year all  corporations engaged in interstate commerce must make reports, upon blanks  -which=the=government^will^proyide=for  that purpose, giving their name and the  place and date of their organization, and  the same nformation respecting constituent companies. If there has been a  reorganization the name of the original  corporaton must be given with the same  information as to all prior companies  in the chain of organization.  These reports must show the amount  of capital stock, authorized number of  shares, par value, whether common or  preferred and distinction between each,  the amount issued and outstanding, the  amount paid in, and whether in cash or  property, and if in property, describing  in detail the kind and character, with  the cash market.value at the time paid  in. The total indebtedness also must  be shown, giving its nature and the purposo for which it was incured.  The reports also must set forth the  assets at prevailing prices and the liabilities, with current assets and liabilities, total earnings anu income, operating expenses, interest, taxes, mainten-,  ance, .permanent improvements, net  earnings and dividends declared, with  rate and date during preceding year, and  the salaries of officers and wages of employees. Swearing to a false report is  made perjury, punishable as such under  the criminal statutes.  Corporations engaged in interstate  commerce whose capital is. hot fully,  paid in are required to pay an. annual  tax on their capital stock. The tax is  made a first lien, and corporations failing to pay it shall be restricted from  ,doing interstate business.  The secretary of the treasury is required to publish for free distribution  a list of al corporations thus reporting.  America's Credit Relations.  NEW YORK, Decern Der 8.���An article  by theflnancial editor of the London  Times on the credit relations of the  Lnited States and Great Britain has  appeared. In the opinion of the editor  the United States is in the position of  a young, vigorous and honest manufacturer, who has also had great success  as a farmer, and who is able to command first class credit at his banker's.  He makes a great deal more net income  than he needs, and employes all that he  does not spend in extending his business. He has occasional fits of exhu-  berant energy and enthusiasm, when he  borrows   largely  to   construct   works  Getting Bather. Monotonous.  NEW YORK, December 6.���The Paris  correspondent of 'the London Times  quotes a dispatch from The Hague correspondent of the Temps in regard to  the reports of a serious quarrel between queen Wilhelmina and her husband, prince Henry of the Netherlands.  The Temps vouches for the correspondent as from a contributor who has the  reputation of sending accurate information. The correspondent says the  malicious rumors in ' regard to the  queen and prince Henry are fabrications  of cheap society papers in Holland.  He adds: "It is a most happy thing  that there is no domestic strife, the  queen loves her husband and harmony  has  always  prevailed."  LONDON, December 6.���A dispatch  to the Evening News from The Hague  published today says peace reigns at  the palace, and the happiest - man in  Holland is major Van Tots who was  wounded in defense of the queen by  prince Henry, or as all the Dutchmen  now contemptuously call him, "the  German."

Neligan, third officer of the  steamship Irada and an official observer  of marine events for the hydrographic  office, makes the following, official report:  October 26th, 1901.���At 11 a. m*. today,  in latitude 27 degrees 26 minutes north,  and longitude 90 degrees 18 minutes  west, passed a large sea serpent appearing about 100 feet long. The head was  blunt; square-' nose and was ejecting  water to the height of two or theree feet  from; its nostrils. The animal or fish  had three distinct sets' of fins and a tail  lying- across like a porpoise. On its  back was a series of humps like a  camel. It was heaumg about east  (true) and moving slowly.  This seems to settle it���if there was  any doubt about it. Since the dawn of  history, since that flrst mariner whom  Horace sauTmust have ' had a heart  thrice bound round with triple brass to  dare to adventure the unknown sea,  there have been reports of sea serpents.  They have ranged in size from the  length of a giant boa-constrictor to the  one described in the fo'castle song:  From the tip pf his nose to the tip of his  tail  It's just nine thousand mile. .  Scientific men have made due allowance for the vivid imaginations of seafaring men and have recognized that  behind these tales there was a solid  truth���a survival of those ancient monsters which peopled the sea when man  was still a tailed arborean, speaking the  ian"guage=which=professoriGarner*-makes=  a living and a stir by trying to recover.-  It is not strange that none of these  monsters has ever been captured. The  sea is so vast both in surface and In  depth... When they die they go to the  bottom or are soon torn to pieces by  other fish and sea birds. They avoid the  haunts of man. It may be that some of  the more formidable ones have now and  then met and attacked a small ship. If  so, perhaps they destroyed th'e last  witness of a combat so hideous that no  imagination of possible horrors of the  mysterious sea could conceive it.  Origin of Beneficent Institution.  One afternoon last year a Parisian  lady saw a servant girl dissolved in  tears seated on her knees. Inquiries elicited tho naive confession that she had  been spending the previous hour in  fruitless efforts to arrange the infant's  attire, and after hopelessly struggling  with the mysteries of swaddling clothes  had given up the attempt. How was  she to face the mother, her mistress,  with the child in this undressed state?  Despair at the thought had driven her  to tears. Between the sobs she explained  that she had that morning accepted an  r.ivitation as nursery maid without ever  having held a baby in her arms before.  The kind hearted lady dressed the hapless infant and determined there and  then to start a school for servant girls.  The institution is now a flourishing concern, and the lady who founded it has  had the. satisfaction of turning out several hundred domestic servants, fully  equipped for the efficient discharge of  their duties in various branches.  ooiMiiP-A-isnz"  0FFICE:��BAKER STREET WEST, NELSOfl, B.

The youth turned over and settled down  to another nap, but the next hour he  was awakened by the unwelcome, call.  When this had been repeated for the  third time he decided to endure it no  longer; and going to the door of his  tent called out: "Look here, my good  man, it's very kind of,you to tell me  the time, but 1 have a watch here by  my bed, so please spare yourself further trouble^   Philippine Forts Closed.  MANILA, December 5. ��� General  Chaffee has issued orders for the closing of all ports in the Batangas and  Lagiian provinces. The quartermasters  there will cease paying rent to the Filipinos for buildings used for military  purposes, as it is found that a large  portion of the money so paid finds, its  way to the insurgents in the way of  contributions, and general Chaffee intends that no more government money  shall find its way into the hands of the  enemy. The reason for closing the ports  is that too many supplies are found to  be getting into the possession of the  insurgents. General Chaffee intends  giving* general Ball, commanding the  troops in Batangas, every assistance  he may require to subdue the insurgents.  Governor Taft is improving rapidly and  expects to return to the United States  in the government transport Grant,  which sails  before  Christmas.  Denver's Experiment in Consumption.  Enterprising physicians and citizens  of Denver, Colorado, have undertaken  an experiment of world-interest. They  have formed a colony of consumptives  on a ten-acre tract of land five miles  from their city for the purpose of thoroughly testing what Is known as "the  open-air cure." The colonists are all In  the early stages of the disease. They are  compelled by the rules to live outdoors  day and night, summer and winter.  They are provided with warm clothing,  blankets and roomy tents, warmed by  small stoves. All the work of the colony  is done by its members.   No profits are  to be made by the enterprise, It is running on the co-operative basis, assisted  by contributions of benevolent persons  all over the country who take an interest in seeing the continuous-out-of-doors  theory for the cure for consumption  scientifically tried and, if it can be,  proved. In several states, Massachusetts particularly, the open-air-sanitarium idea has been more or less tested,  and good results are claimed for it.  Denver's colony, as its promoters expect, will become large enough to furnish conclusive proof of its value.  MONEYTALKS  BUT WHAT YOU CET FOR YOUR  tyONEY TALKS MORE.
