ESTABLISHED  1892  WEDNESDAY  MORNING,  DECEMBER  18   1901  DAILY EDITION  DOCTOBS' PLAIHT  THINK CONGRESS SHOULD  COME TO THEIR AID.  BILL   FOE  SERVICES   RENDERED  THE LATE PRESIDENT REMAINS UNPAID.  BUFFALO, December 17.���In view of  the wide discussion in circulation to the  question* of who should pay the physicians who attended president McKinley,  Dr. Matthew D. Mann consented to make  a statement today setting forth the attitude of himself and his associates. Dr.  Mann.in reply to a question by a newspaper reporter said: "We feel that, we  operated on the president, of the United  States; that we operated for the American people with a view to saving their  president for them; that we were called  not by the family, of president McKinley, but by the authorities, the cabinet  and others, to take charge of the president, and we feel, therefore, that we  have a right to, look to congress and the  - nation for our remuneration. We took  a tremendous responsibility, because we  took in our hands the life of the most  prominent* man in. the world, and we  feel that in talcing such a responsibility  we ran ; an immense risk. Had the  autopsy showed that we made any so--  rious mistake we would have received  unlimited condemnation and might even  havo been.'ruined- professionally.' From  all these fnets Aye feel that we should  not be called upon to render bills to th'e  family. Any bills which we might  render to the late president's estate  would be larger than Mrs. McKinley  ���>'. ought to pay. If we should render such  arbill as she could properly pay we  should feel that^ we would be very imperfectly remunerated. We feel, therefore, that congress should take up the  matter, and make an appropriation  such as it may see fit and save us from  becoming the objects of criticism by  sending in a bill, for no matter what  bill we might send in we would receive  a certain amout of abuse. We also feel  that the^dignity of the-medical profession demands;,that congress should pay  this 'bill, and that .the services should  be. handsomely rewarded. The medical  profession all over the world is waiting  with, great interest to see how this affair will turn out, and we do not propose to do anything, if we can avoid it,  which will lay. us open to criticism.

English PaiK rs on tho Treaty  LONDON, December 17.���Tho afternoon newspapers today comment approvingly on. the ratification of the Hay-  Pauncefote treaty by the United States  seriate yesterday with the sinfrle exception of the Globe, which sees in the  overwhelming majority for the ratification proof that the compact is regarded by thc senate as one sided and  calculated to adversely, affect British  political and commercial interests.  "Senator Teller's offensive ' phrase  clearly signifies," the paper says, "the  conviction that England has become too  Submissive to stand up for her rights  " against the great republic." The Globe  concludes: "It is a surrender, not a  bargain. We hand over national property as purchase money for American  friendship."  ���  A New ZenHnd Quake.

Hole, which had In charge the arrangements l'or the convention; that they performed with admirable thoroughness thy  great amount of work they had to do is  best attested by the results. Their, most  sanguine expectations could not well have  been greater than tho splendid and memorable success of the convention. A large  share of credit is due, too, to the Young  Men's Liberal Club, of this city, for the  loading part it has taken in preparing for  the convention. It is a model political organization of young men, and in its handsome and commodious quarters it is prospering greatly; the many attractions it has  to offer young meh; keeping its membership  rolls on the steady increase.

BIG FEE IN MOLINEAUX CASE  EASTERN CANADIAN NEWS  Wired in Brief,  WOOl.'STOCK, Ontario, December 17.���  ���Xlev. K. -H. MacKay has resigned the pastorate of the First Baptist church to accept  Roosevelt snd Carnegie.  It Is said to be definitely settled that  president Roosevelt will not accept Carnegie's offer of iflO.OOO.WO of steel trust  bonds for the proposed institution for  higher learning. The condition that Lb-.1  government should holn these bonds foi1  a number of years is said to be particularly  distasteful to tho president, inasmuch as  il would have ttie appearance of making  the government a partner In tlio steel  trust. Tills decision was expected from 11  president of Mr. Roosevelt's high standards and eleancut policies. Mr. Carnegie's  offer was objectionable for thc reason just  stated, and for the further reason that  the proposed institution bf higher learning,  to be ot enduring and lofty benefits, should  stand free to consider economic subjects  without even an appearance of bias. It may  be proper for that institution to accept a  large cash endowment from Mr. Carnegie  as a citizen. It would be manifestly im  proper to put it and the government in  partnership with a concern that violates  at least the spirit of the Sherman law  against trusts.���Spokane Spokesman-Review.

The "platform of the Independent Labor party of Nolson is incomplete, and  probably when it is completed it will be  like the' platforms of" the other political  parties: it will contain some planks that  really mean something that'is feasible  and "some that are mere fads ' and" unworkable while compulsory attendance  at schools and free text books, taken as  a whole, may be a little in advance of  public opinion, yet it is feasible, and if  carried out would mean a slight excess  in provincial expenditures, whicli would  have to be met by increased taxation".  Making the working day - eight hours'  and a week's work six days legal means  little more than cmaking a certain rato  of interest legal. Government inspection  of all industries would increase the  number of officeholders., and therefore  increase the provincial expenditures,  without resulting benefits. The abolition of the contract system on all public  works looks well in theory but is hardly  practicable. The law now compels the  contractor to pay fair wages and work  men fair hours.

Tt  is  admitted  that some  public works can best he carried out by  contractors, while   others   can best   he  carried   out   as   direct   government undertakings.    A minimum .living   wage,  based on local conditions, is not unfair.  Public ownership of franchises docs not  mean anything.   Thc public own all the  franchises ' now.     What,   is   wanted   is  actual ownership by the public of railways, telegraphs, and other public utilities.    Tax reform based on increasing  land taxes and decreasing taxes on industries sounds well, but if carried out  practically   who   would    it   affect   the  most?   Would   it  not   hurt,  the  small  holders of real estate in town and country more   than   tho   corporations   and  large land  holders?    Abolition   of   the  Dominion senate is a fad.   Exclusion of  the Chinese is a plank on which there  is little difference of opinion in British  Columbia. The union label, when unions  compel their members  to undergo examinations as to competency, would be  a certificate that the article on which  it is placed was   made   by   competent  workmen.    Abolition  of child  labor is  right, but. the abolition of female labor  in all branches of industrial life would  work  a  great wrong on   thousands  of  good  and   deserving women.    Compulsory arbitration of labor disputes should  be made a workable law.   Proportionate  representation by grouped constituenccs  and the abolition of the ward system is  on right lines, as is tho abolition of the  property qualification  for  elective  municipal    officials.        Direct    legislation  through the initiative and the referendum is impracticable.    Instead, certain  legislation   before   becoming   operative  should have the approval of the electorate,  much  the   same   as is now required on money by-laws in municipalities.      Prison    labor    should    not    be  brought   into   competition   with    free  labor, and there Is little danger of its  The Miner in its efforts to defeat Bylaw No. 102 slates   the   city   engineer.  It says any estimate that   official   may  make on the cost of installing a power  plant on Kootonay river would be valueless unless first approved of by an electrical expert.-   The Miner cannot be serious when it makes such a manifestly  absurd   statement. '  Electrical   experts  are very necessary when it comes to installing an   electrical   plant;    but   the  average electrical  expert cannot know  any more about ��� the cost of dynamos  and water wheels and copper wire and  poles and   rock   excavation   and   road  making and   house " building   than the  average city engineer.   It may be stated  in this connection that the estimate of  the cost of installing a power plant on  Kootenay river by city   engineer   McCulloch is approximately the same as  one   made   by   B. C. Riblet,   the .well-  known hydraulic engineer of Nelson and  Spokane.    Mr. .Riblet was employed-by  the city in the fall of last year to select  a suitable site on Kootenay river for a  power station, and the site selected met  with his  approval.   While  he  did ' not-  make an estimate in detail   as   to   the  cost of installation,   he   made   an   ap^  proximate estimate.    His estimate was  $125,000, and he said an additional $25,-"  000 would be a liberal sum for contingencies.     Mr. Riblet   is   considered  an  authority  on  developing water  power,  and has been employed as constructing  and consulting engineer on several of  the largest works of that kind on the  Pacific Coast.   Mr. Riblet does not claim  -to-be^an'electrical-engineerj-but-thecost-  of   electrical   machinery   can   be  estimated almost to a dollar, while determining the. size of flumes and waste-  ways and the cost of excavating rock  and earth is the work of the hydraulic  engineer and not of the electrical expert.   The expressions of the Miner'arc  evidently inspired  by mayor  Fletcher,  and as the opinions of the mayor arc  merely echoes of those of tho management of the West Kootenay Power  &  Light Company,   why   are   not   figures  givon to show wherein the estimates of  tho city engineer are wrong?   With all  his experience as' an electrical expert,  surely the manager of the West Kootenay Power & Light Company, Limited,  of Rossland should   be   able   to   givo  mayor Fletcher   pointers   as to   where  city engineer McCulloch  is out in his  fip-ures.  Not counting   the   aspirants   at   the  Coast,  there  are three candidates for  the position   of senator   from   British  Columbia    should    a    vacancy    occur  through  senator  Templeman's  resignation.    One of the aspirants is Dr. Sinclair of Rossland.    Another is George  Owen  Buchanan   of Kaslo.    The  third  is J. B. McArthur of Columbia. The first  claims to have been a resident of * Rossland for five years, coming to that city  from Ontario.   He is an aristocratic appearing old gentleman, and if a dignified  bearing was thc   one   qualification required,  the  doctor  would  be  a  strong  candidate.    The Tribune is of opinion  that a dignified bearing   is about   the  only qualification the doctor has, so if  The   Tribune   is   right,   the    doctor's  claims need not be seriously considered.  George  Owen  Buchanan  of  Kaslo  has  been a resident of the province for fifteen years.   He hails from Nova Scotia.  At one time George Owen was narrow  and  one-ideaed; but adversity and shoulder-rubbing has wrought a great change.  He is well read and well informed.   He  can express his ideas clearly, and if he  could only shorten his speeches ho would  be an effective speaker. He knows tho  wants of Kootenay and Yale probably  as well, from the Liberal party point of  view, as any other man in the province.  He lacks force, but what he lacks in  that respect, is made up in application  and persistency. J. B. McArthur of  Columbia is probably an abler man  than George Owen Buchanan, and it is  just possible that he is a broader-  minded and a more far-seeing one. His  elevation to the senate would be in the  nature of a surprise to a large majority  of its members, who arc 'as prosy as  they are non-progressive. British Columbia needs for a senator a man who  knows the wants and the rights of its  people, and has tho ability to not only  express himself in good, toarse English,  but thc dignity that gives force to  ability.

NEW YORK, Decern nor 17.���Sensational revelations are expected in Uie  report which special agent G. F. Cross  will make in a few days of thc investigation of reported frauds in the New  York customs house, which lie lias been  conducting for three weeks.  Facts have been discovered, it was  said yesterday, tliat show that tlie government has boen defrauded out of between ��500,000 and $1,000,000 in duties  on laces and embroideries, perhaps  more! Five firms profited, it is said, by  these alleged wholesalo frauds.  Special agent. Cress said yesterday it  was impossible to say how extensive  tho frauds had been. It will never be  known, as the goods which were slipped  SAVINGS BANK DEPARTMENT:  Intercut allowed on  doposlts.    l*>resont, rate  threo por cent.  GRANGE V.  HOLT,  ManiiKor Nolnon Hnwich.  through at undervaluations were long  ago dispersed in the channels of trade  and it is utterly impossible to trace  them. The only way by which the extent of the frauds can lie gauged is by  the discovery of recent frauds.''  "Tho trouble has been located in the  second ..division," said Mr. Cross. This  is tho entry department. I think I know  where it is, but I can give none of.the  results of our investigation until I have  made my report. Thc facts will have to  come out through tho treasury department at Washington."  Collector George R. Bidwell said the  case of alleged fraud that, is being investigated by agent Cross was the only  ono in the customs department that he  had heard of in four years.  "My first information of this alleged  fraud," said the collector, "came from  Washington. No complaint was made  to nie. If there has beci any fraud it  occurred in the entry department.

This system was that one  case out of every ten should be sent to  the. appraiser for appraisement. The  case -was, of course, to be selected by  the entry clery, he making his decision  according to the showing of the invoice.  I know nothing about this case except  that it is being investigated by the  special agent."  Importers apparently have effected  the frauds by influencing the official  whose duty it is to select the cases for  appraisement to choose the cases indicated by the importer. In this way, it  is said, the-least valuable case in each  ten has been selected to send to the appraiser, and thus the firm has escaped  thousands of dollars of duties. Whenever the collector had scented undervaluation in such cases and has written to  the importer to have the remaining nine  cases sent to the appraiser for inspec-  ii i I ������. :  ,V   ^ ^ ^ S^  m  to  to  to  to  to  to  Hurry  Up  for  ENGRAVING  Christmas  Gifts  FREE OF CHARGE  For "engraving, first come, fhst served.

And all kinds of small  wares and trimmings will be given  special attention.  tion, he has invariably received the  reply that the goods have already been  disposed of to customers and that it is  impossible. It will be seen from this  how impossible it is for the investigators to discover the actual extent of the  ���frauds.  "It is the duty of the entry clerk,"  said agent Cross, "to designate the  cases of goods to be sent to the appraiser. He is guided by the invoice in  making his selection. He selects one  case out of each ten to be sent to the  appraiser. The appraiser makes an advisory appraisement on this case. The  importer gives a ten-day bond and receives the other nine eases. If the collector suspects something is wrong and  writes to the importer to send the contents of the nine cases to the appraiser  for investigation, it usually happens  that these goods have been disposed of.  "All the trouble has been over laces  and embroideries. The investigation has  not yet been completed, and until it is  I will have no report, to make upon it."  It is hinted that the importers have  done all this by-means of comparatively  small bribes. This phase of the matter  will - be gone into thoroughly by the  special treasury agents.  The treasury department at Washington has ordered agent Cross to make a  thorough and complete investigation.  Thinks It Time to Mediate  NEW YORK, December 17.���A dispatch to the Herald from Bogota, Colombia, says senor Herbos, the Chilian  minister, has cabled to president Castro, of Venezuela, that he hoped that  once mediation had been accepted and  the opportunity arriving, each republic,  Venezuela and Colombia, would submit  its grievances and claim of rights of indemnity strengthening its demands by  documents and proofs and accepting  without reserve the decision of the mediator. "I regret to have to communi-  cate," the Chilian minister adds, ''that  the Colombian government considers  that the conditions submitted by you  can not be accepted by Colombia. I regret, in the name of the .Chilian government and myself, my inability to reestablish harmony between the republics." *     ��� ���  ..  Steamer Sinks in Collision.

His scheme was to fence  in all the ice that was fit for skating and  then charge an admission fee to those who  desired to skate'upon it. Tiie attention of  the provincial police oflicers was called to  the matter and, the intimation was given  that any form of fencing would not be permitted. This, .wai?'hailed "with overy manifestation qf glee by a host of youngsters  w,ho had. c'ouriteg ti.pon, skating; on the ice,  but were afraid'tp,'.
