Cablegrams Received at Rossland Yes-  tsrday Show That the Famous  Cablegram Was a Fake.  " ROSSLAND, August 30��� [Special to  The Tribune.]���The following cables  were received in Rossland this morning:  : I "LONDON, August 29.���The extraordinary general meeting of the shareholders of the Le Roi Mining & Smelting Company, Limited, _took place this  afternoon and was largely attended.  Business was virtually suspended on the  Stock Exchange, consequent upon the  number of brokers and others being-  present at tlie meeting. Whitaker  Wright was not present. After the  chairman had read the petition asking  for the meeting to be called together,  Vwith other necessary documents, the resignation" of Messrs. Wright and Ruegg  was announced, evidently creating satisfaction. After preliminary proceedings  . a motion was made and carried unanimously electing Mr. Frecheville one of  the new directors. His "election was received- with' applause. Several - shareholders expressed great satisfaction that,  ho had consented to accept the position,  as his reputation for probity and as a  mining engineer was not confined to  one continent. The Whitaker Wright  element was in an immense minority.  The proceedings were very harmonious.  Mr. Frecheville' accepted the responsibility of choosing a colleague, either director Hill or "-'sir'Henry Tyler, to visit  Rossland. No resolutions whatever were  passed indorsing the management either  at Rossland or London, the act taken by  the meeting being considered sufficient  condemnation of these officials.".  .."LONDON, August 30.���A meeting of  the Le Roi directors took place today.  A mutual exchange of opinions resulted  in the agreement of the investigating  committee to sail for New York en route  to Rossland on Wednesday, September  .,4th.- Meanwhile a committee of direc-  '"tors' has been appointed to prepare a  statement of all points in dispute and  such evidence as is before; them bearing  upon the issue involved. Le Roi shares  have stiffened in consequence of the.  change of directors."  Other cables were received confirming  in many points the ones given, and all  unite in proving that no action or resolution was taken or passed such as was  indicated by the dispatch appearing in  *the Rossland Miner today. It is further  pointed out that the meeting of directors was not held until today, and consequently no such dispatch could have  been sent yesterday, as claimed by McDonald's-paper, i.-  ���  The case'.against ,A1 Geiser for violating tlfe,.Alien Labor.

I do  not thing he is very eager to retire; but  what is more to the point, I feel certain  the party would not allow it unless age  made far greater inroads on his health  .than it has at present. I think you will  ,see lord Salisbury premier as long as  his health lasts and a Unionist government is in power. Personally he has  not pursuits to which he desires,to devote more leisure..

A Good Rule. ���  NEW YORK, August 30.���-The Executive committee of the United States Golf  Association, as a result of charges unofficially brought to their notice, have  taken the precaution to guard against  outsiders coming.: here to compete for  the championships by compelling them  tb be members of a club for a period  net less than the entire season. "No  player," according to the.--.'rule, "can  have his club dues or1 charges paid by  another person, as an inducement to become a member' of a club, nor will a  player be allowed to receive transportation or board, or any reduction or  equivalent thereof,, as a consideration of  his playing golf or exhibiting his skill  as a; player." . ,-.-'    .  ^suc!Ta^tio^hs_ra^nd-in~vlBw_of"his_prompt"  action at the request of the Le Roi Company in the Colistro.case, a great deal  of feeling has been caused among the  union men, who have now applied to the  minister of justice at Ottawa.  Delayed in Transmission  The following telegrams regarding the  Le Roi Mining Company meeting were  delayed in transmission: .  TORONTO, August 30.���The Evening  Telegram's London cable says: "Energetic precautions were taken by the Lo  Roi Mining Company to secure proper  representation at its meeting held yesterday. Police were stationed at the entrance to the hall, with instructions to  exclude all applicants for admission save  bona fide shareholders of the company."  LONDON, August 29.���An excited  meeting of shareholders of the Le Roi  Mining Company was held In London  today. During the meeting shouts were  heard of "Where is Whitaker Wright?"  "On the telephone," somebody shouted  derisively in reply. It was then announced that Mr. Wright had telephoned  a letter explaining that owing to his  resignation there were only two directors left, and'^advising the meeting to  form a committee to appoint new members. It then transpired that Mr.  Wright, lord Divfferin, and Messrs.  Reugg and Mills had all resigned. The  two remaining directors, Messrs. Hill  and Andrew, both refused to take the  chair.  Stockholder Aaron was thereupon  voted to the chair and announced that  he had a majority of 131,438 proxies over  those held by the Wright party, thus  proving how confidence had been shaken  in Mr. Wright's management. Mr. Aaron  and others made very uncomplimentary  remarks about Mr. Wright, who, it is  now said, is a shareholder to the extent  of only 40 shares.  The meeting applauded Mr. Aaron's  comments, and after much commotion  appointed a mining engineer, R. J.  Frecheville, as a director, and resolved  to send him to British Columbia to examine into and report upon the whole  business, after which other directors  will be appointed.  Arrested.

His time  was 2:05 flat. The attempt to break the  record was not made until 6 o'clock,  when the-wind had died down. The  track was smoothed over "and was in  the best shape for. the champion's  footing. He started down once, but  did not get a good start. The. second  time down George Ketcham nodded for  the word, but Cresceus went off his feet  in the stretch and they came down once  more. A runner followed, and a hundred watches were snapped on the great  stallion as he shot under the wire. He  got to the quarter in 31 1-2 seconds,  where a second runner joined and took  up a position a length behind the first.  The half was reached in 1:02 1-4, and the  three-quarters in 1:34 1-2. Hope of  breaking the record was gone, but Cresceus came home strong between..the two  runners, making . the last quarter in  30 1-2, and the mile in 2:05 fiat.  Wu Ting Fang, the Chinese-minister,  saw the great mile from the judges'  stand. There was a good card of events  and a crowd of people, making the last  day a success and bringing a notable  meeting to a close.  Against time, to lower the world's  trotting record of 2:02 1-4, Cresceus,  ch. h. by Robert McGregor, dam Mabel  of Mambrino.Howard (Ketcham); time  bv quarters, first 31 1-2, 30 3-4, 32 1-4,  30 1-2; total time 31 1-2/ 10:02 1-4,  1:34 1-4, 2:05.

NEW YORK, August 30.���What is  said to be the greatest ivager in the history of the sporting world was arranged  today upon the result of the international yacht race. Twenty English and  American capitalists are interested in  a venture which involves nearly half  a million dollars. W. F. Mustin. president of the Pittsburg stock exchange,  representing ten wealthy residents of  that city, gave assurance to Walter J.  Kingslay that the $150,000 which he  brought on the Deutchland yesterday  from an English syndicate of prominent men to be placed on the Shamrock  would be covered at odds of 5 to 3. This  afternoon the principals met to discuss details and wire to England the  exact state of affairs.  Salisbury to Retire.  LONDON, August 30.���The Pall Mall  Gazette, under the heading "The Prime  Minister's Impending Resignation," says  lord Salisbury's retirement probably will  occur after the coronation of king Edward, though some persons place it in  the autumn or early winter. Supporting  the news editorially, the paper says:  "The facts square with our own knowledge to the extent that the Unionist  party should prepare for a new premiership.  LONDON, August 30.���An official who  for over thirty years has been most  closely associated with lord Salisbury  said regarding the report published in  Injunction Did Not Stop -I-Jises.  NEWPORT, August 30.���The automobile races held by the national association which, as the result of an injunction/could not; be held on Ocean drive,  'were run oft" at Aquidneck Park this  afternoon" in short order without loss  of life or limbs. William K. Vanderbilt, jr., president of the organization,  was the star performer of the day. He  drove his own machine in four races,  made the best time on the track, and  won the championship cup. In all, there  were IG races, but the one attracting  most interest and arousing the greatest  excitement was that between young  Mr. Vanderbilt in his new racer of 35  horse-power and Foxhall Keene in a  machine of fully GO horse-power. Each  had won preliminary heats. Mr. Keene  in his contest with David W. Bishop had  something of a walkover, making the  five miles in S minutes. 2 seconds, and  being far ahead at the finish. Mr. Van-  ==d erbi I t7~irbweVerr"i n���II is-fa'ce-w itlTWi I~  Ham N. Murray had no easy victory. He  gained an advantage at the start and  was able to keep it, but his opponent  was never more than five seconds behind, and altogether it was the closest  race of the day among the larger machines. Mr. Vanderbilt's time for tbe  five miles was 7 minutes 43 1-2-seconds.  Mr. Vanderbilt finished the five miles  a winner in 7:30 3-4, the fastest five  miles of the' day. The last event of the  day was tbe championship race for the  winners of all classes, 10 miles, or 20  times around the track. This Mr. Vanderbilt won handily in 15:23 1-2. A  noteworthy competitor was Kenneth  Skinner, on a motor tricycle, who was  second, covering the 10 miles in 17:25.  Heinze Wins His Suit  HELENA, Montana, August 30.���The  supreme court announced an important  ruling in the litigation involving the  Minnie Healey mine in Butte today  when the application of Miles Finlcn  for an injunction to restrain F. A.  Heinze from operating the mine pending the appeal from judge Harney's  decision,-was denied. Work will immediately be resumedcin the mine. The  affidavits reilecting on the character of  judge Harney, who tried the Minnie  Healey case, were also ordered stricken  from the files of the court. The court  made a third order denying the motion  of the Boston & Montana Company for  an increase in the Pennsylvania indemnifying bond. In all of the orders made  Mr.   Heinze wins.  Cassiar's Lest Returns  VICTORIA. August 30.���J. W. McFarland, census commissioner for Atlin district has reached the city. Mr. McFarland was a passenger on the Islander on  her last and fatal trip, and it was in his  custody that the census returns for the  Atlin district were being brought out  to chief commissioner Drury. The loss  of the ship anil of the returns necessitates another emimeration-and Mr. McFarland returns shortly to oversee the  work of taking it. While, of course, unable to disclose the actual result of the  census, Mr. McFarland admits that the  return, had it been available, would  have shown a population of over "000  for Northern Cassiar, namely, Dcaso  Lake, Porcupine, and Atlin.  NEWPORT, August 30���The final series of races between the Constitution  and Columbia will begin over the Newport, course tomorrow. Of all the contests that have taken place between the  American boats this season these are  the most important, for on their result depends the selection of the-defend-  -er to go against the Shamrock II in  the great races for the America's cup  - off Sandy Hook. Out of sixteen races  already finished, each boat has now  eight, and so close were they" in speed  that many good yachtsmen say that,  whatever the outcome of .the trials,  it will be a hard task to choose between  them. At the finish of the trial races  next Wednesday the regatta committee,-  consisting of former commodores Nicholson Kane, Chester Griswold, arid New-:  bury Lawton, will turn over to the challenge committee the data regarding all  the races between the Constitution and  the Columbia.  Both racers are at their moorings in  tho harbor tonight ready for. the fray;  Constitution has been put in the best  possible trim by none other than her  .designer, Nat Herreshoff, whose*illness  has hitherto preventec- him from devoting much time to the boat. The new  boat was given a trial spin' down the  bay today and the sails had a good  stretching. The head stays, which  slackened when the boat was hauled  out, were also set taut and all the rigging was given a thorough overhauling.  The Columbia also was given final  touches today and the boats are now  ready to show the best speed there is in  them. Sir Thomas Lipton, owner of the  cup challenger, will be a spectator of  the race on Monday. He has accepted  an invitation to be the guest of commodore Leonard at dinner on Monday,  and the- event will be made the first official welcome to "the' British yachtsman  by the officers of the New York yacht  club. Other guests will be the owners  of the Constitution and Columbia.  NEW YORK, August 30.���The Shamrock II took herself out today, and with  sir Thomas Lipton and designer Watson on board, passed outside the point  of the Hook at 11:05 o'clock for a spin.  The wind was blowing eight knots east  southeast, and with her sheets to port  the yacht made a long tack, heading  eastwards to a point opposite the Sandy  Hook lightship. About 1:35 o'clock the  green yacht's course was changed to the  .northwest, and with a 12-knot breeze  directly astern an enormous spinnaker  was broken out for the first time in  these waters. It appeared to set very  badly, and in a few minutes was hauled  in. The yacht returned to her anchorage at 3 o'clock.  At 12:40 o'clock, when about one and  a half miles due north of the Sandy  Hook lightship, the Shamrock tacked  and headed for that vessel. The wind  =sliifted^to=southeastT=arid-*-ble%v*ni=stea(:]y=  10-knot breeze. Although there was  quite a ground swell out on the ocean  the yacht went through the water with  less fuss than a sharp-prowed torpedo  boat.  After the spin sir Thomas Lipton said:  "It was a very good light weather trial,  but more of a sail stretching spin to get  the boat in good condition for Jameson,  who will arrive tonight we hope. He will  have absolute charge of the yacht when  he comes and I want to say that he is  worth five minutes to any yacht that  sails. We regard him as the best amateur yachtsman in England. The Shamrock will go out at 10 o'clock tomorrow  with Mr. Jameson on board. I shall  start for Newport with a party on Sunday morning and I hope to see a good  race between the two American yachts  on Monday."Sir Thomas Lipton when  informed that Walter ,t. Kingsley had  placed all of the $150,000 sent from England to wager on the Shamrock with a  Pittsburg syndicate, said: "I am glad  to hear it. What odds did he get?" Sir  Thomas declined to make any comments  on the wager.  merged. They will be propelled by a  120 horse power gasoline engine, when  on the surface, and a storage battery  when submerged. Each boat will carry  a fuel supply that will enable It to steam  400 knots at a surface speed of nine  knots, and seven knots when sub-"  merged. The armament will consjst of  one torpedo tube at the extreme end of  the bow, two feet underneath the water  line. Each boat will carry five torpedoes  11 3-4 feet long. The engines and the  automatic moving rudder will prevent  the boat from inclining at angles while  diving and rising, will keep them submerged as .long as desired, and, will  bring the vessels to a horizontal posi-!  tion when submerged. The official trial  will consist of a run of ten knots on the  surface and two.knots submerged.  WOULD  IMPEACH SHAFFER  HIS STRIKE MANAGEMENT NOW  BITTERLY DENOUNCED.  THE BALKANS WAR CLOUD  Russia Resumes Intrigues.'  LONDON, August 30.���The Roumanian premier, M. Sbutraza, recently visited Vienna, where he had a long conference with count Goluchowski, the  Austro-Hungarian minister of foreign  affairs, on the situation in the Balkans.  He conferred with general von Beck,  chief of the Austro-Hungarian general  staff.  Immediately after this visit articles  appeared in the semi-official Hungarian  papers���articles believed in some quarters to be inspired by count Goluchowski���warmly protesting.against Russia's  intrigues in the Balkans. These protests were based on rumors that Russia  was massing troops on the Roumanian  frontier and sending torpedo boats into  the Kilia, an arm of the Danube; and-  they plainly warned Russia that unless  she faithfully adhere to the Austro-Rus-  sian agreement of 1889 to preserve the  status quo in the Balkans, Austria will  "resume her liberty of action."  The idea underlying tnis warning appears to be that Russia,"having attained  her objects in Eastern -Asia, is now  ready to pursue similar claims in the  Balkans.  One Berlin paper has gone so far as  to describe the agreement qf 1897 as "an  instrument to keep Austria quiet while  Russia is engaged in Mancnuria."  The Daily Mail publishes the following dispatch today from its Vienna correspondent: "From most reliable  sources I hear that count Lamsdorff  (Russian foreign minister) has arranged  for an important conference in Vienna  with count Goluchowski after the czar's  visit to Rheims."  It Looks as if the Great Strike of the  Steel Workers Is About to  Collapse.  Strike Called Off.  MONTREAL, August 30.���The general  manager of the C. P. R. this morning  confirmed the report that the strike of  certain of its trackmen had been called  off, an understanding having been reached with the committee of the trackmen  here. The understanding arrived i at is  practically on the basis recommended  by the different conciliation committees,  who have been in the city for some time  past. Reinstatement of strikers not  guilty of violence consistent with promises made new hands and the possible  granting of a schedule to a certain portion of its permanent staff are features  of tho settlement, but no further advances have been made in the wages  granted in June last, immediatcl prior  to the strike.  New Submarine BoatF.  LONDON, August 30.���Viekers' Sons  and Maxim, who aro building five submarine topodo boats for the British  navy. gave the following particulars  in regard to the vessels, which will soon  be launched. They will bo G2 1-2 feet  long, 11 3-4 feet beam, and will have a  displacement   of  120   tons   when   sub-  .. Fight for Mining Prospe.ts.  SEATTLE, August 30.���Sixty-five determined men, armed and masked,  sought to take forcible possession of a  piece of rich mining ground in the Nome  district August 15th. The property is  known as the famous California Fractional bench, above Discovery, on Glacier creek. It was in possession of Fin-  ley Mcintosh and a force of 18 men. As  a result of the conflict. Richard O'Connor, a Mcintosh workman, lies in a hospital at Nome with a bullet wound in  his'left thigh, which it is feared will  cause the loss of the limb and possibly  his life. Thirteen of the invading force  were arrested by United States marshal  Richards, charged with participation in  a riot, with felonious results and intents. Eugene Richard disputes Mcintosh's possession of the'property, and  tho attacking men, it is claimed, were  acting in his behalf. Sixty-five men,  armed ' and all wearing black cloth  masks, came running from behind the  rdumpsr^vhei'^e"=tlm=riWif^h7rtl^l)WirTir  work. They ordered them off the grounds  and ran into the tents'where the shift  mon were and told them to get out as  quickly as possible. Then a number of  them ran down tho hill to where Mcintosh and his men were in camp.  O'Connor, who was in bod. began to put  on his shoes, but apparently ho did  not hurry fast enough, so thoy shot  him. It all occurred so quickly that  they could hardly realize what had happened.

C, received 137 votes.  The second ballot gave the office to  Thomas, he receiving 185 out of 208.  re-  Supreme Court Vacancy.

Eleven Dead So Far.  NEW YORK, August 30.���The wreck  of the south bound passenger train on  the Solus Bay division of the Pennsylvania (Northern Central) last night,  has resulted up to tonight in the death  of 11 persons.  Gardner Wins From Carter.  SAN FRANCISCO, August 30.���Oscar  Gardiner won from Kid Carter tonight  in the 18th round.  PITTSBURG, August 30.���While thera  is no actual change in the strike situation,, much transpired today calculated'  to produce results in the near future.  The   conference   between   the   Bayview  committee and the   Amalgamated   officials, the continued efforts of president  Burns of the  Window   Glass  Workers  Association  to  bring about arbitration  oi*, conciliation,   the  scathing  editorial  in the Labor World calling for the impeachment   of   president   Shaffer,   the  march of the strikers of McKeesport to  Duquesne, and the decided effect of the"  injunction proceedings at Canal Dover, "  Ohio, all indicate that the crisis*is approaching and that an important change  in affairs is not far distant.   What-the  outcoine will be no man can tell.  The details of the conference of the  Bayview- convention   and   the  Amalgamated  officials   have  not  yet been   divulged by either party, but the fact that  the committee is here at all would indicate that the Bayview strikeis are uneasy.^ J. D. Hi.ckey and J. F. Cooper of  the   committee; have   been   here   since .  Monday, but their presence has not been  .generally   known.     The   general   belief ^  -is that the main object of the commit-   -  tee's visit was for the  purpose of arranging some compromise by which the  Bayview plant may resume.    President   -  Shaffer, on the contrary, says the two  men did  not come here as -representa- '  tives of: the Bayview lodge.   They were  simply here as  individual  members of  the   Amalgamated   Association   to   explain in person the reason-for their ac- '  tion  in regard to general strike order,  and the reversal of that decision after-  Tighe's  visit  to  Milwaukee.    The  two  gentlemen left for  home tonight,  and,  it is said, a meeting of their lodge will'  be held upon their return to take action  in the report, v  Notwithstanding the report from New  York that no conference has been held  or arranged between C. M. Schwab and  Simon Burns looking toward arbitration,  the latter has not relaxed his cffoits in  this direction and seems determined to  bring about some sort of a compromise.  The editorial in the current issuo of  the Labor World, the organ of the International Tin Workers' Protective Association, and the mouthpiece of the  Pittsburg district Mine Workers' Union  and the Patternmakers' Association, is  a long and bitter attack on president  Shaffer and demands his impeachment  for calling the present strike. The de--  mand for impeachment is made because-  it is charged Shaffer compelled the steel  workers to violate contracts, because he  expelled the Chicago men and revoked  their charter without constitutional  bearing, and because the whole strike is  unconstitutional and has brought ruin  and wreck to men who have made the  Amalgamated Association. The editorial gives twenty-four reasons why  'president Shaffer should be impeached.  =The~fa^tnh"at~GWi^iriirowi?117T>i'eRidont  of the Tin Plate Workers' Protective  Association of America. Ij. E. Thomas,  prosident of the Patternmakers' League,  and Patrick Dolan, president of the  United Mine Workers of Pittsburg district, constitute the board of control of  the publication, and president Shaffer  Shaffer himself iip to within a year ago,  was a member of tho board, would seem  to lend considerable weight to the utterances of the paper.  The march of the McKeesport strikers  to Duquesne this afternoon was a disappointment to the strikers, partly because of a heavy rain during the parade  and the meeting in an open lot, and  partly because of a lack of enthusiasm.  It was expected at least 5000 strikers  would take part In the march, but by  actual count there were 553 in line.  NKW YORK, August 30.���It was said  today at the oflice of the United States  Steel Corporation that no conference  with Simon Burns or any one else representing the Amalgamated Association  had been arranged or was contemplated.  PITTSBURG, August 30.���It is reported here that a'conference by long distance telephone has been arranged for  this afternoon between Charles M.  Schwab, president of the United States  Steel Corporation, and Simon Burns,  president of the National Window Glass  Workers' Association. Mr. Burns is in  this city and is trying to arrange another meeting with the Amalgamated  oflicers and the officers of the Steel Corporation for the purpose of settling the  strike.  to the strike. The final settlement has  been recommended by the conciliation  committees as fair and reasonable, under all the circumstances. It is understood that both parties are satisfied.  The Loss to be Inquired Into.  VICTORIA. August 30^���A court of  Inquiry into tho loss of tho Islander will  begin its sittings here in the court house  on Tuesday morning. This afternoon  captain Gaudin. local marine agent, received a dispatch from Ottawa announcing his appointment as commissioner to hold the inquiry, and that  captain J. G. Cox and J. A.

John Houston. Manager. Nel.son, B. C.  The Rossland Miner finds fault with  the census returns of Rossland, and  claims that the correct figures are 6165,  and not 6138 as published. Twenty-  seven inhabitants more or less cuts little  figure; but when a town has over a  thousand people cut out of its population there is good reason to Icicle. Nelson's population is, apparently, an unknown quantity. The boundaries of the  town are defined in the act of incorporation, but none of the census enuemra-  tors knew where the boundary lines  ran. If'they guessed at it, and left out  Hoover Addition and Hume Addition  and Fairview, then they left out about  2000 people. If they included these three  additions, then they have counted at  We are daily in  recelit ot fresh  photo supplies  ���films, printing  papers, plates,  chemicals, and  all     developing    accessories.

It is just possible that the population of Nelson will not be known; but,  at any rate, there will be no kick registered if the figures when officially announced are only 27 short of the actual  count.          ��� ���  ��� - .  Spokane's mayor, who went into office  with the avofed determination to abate  the saloon nuisance, known as the side-  door entrance, has fallen down. The  political power of the saloons was too  much for the mayor to stand up against.  In order to bring about reforms, officials  must be proof against political pressure.  No matter in what way money is made,  whether honestly or dishonestly, those  making it object to being interfered  with. In Spokane-the "disreputable saloons havec> side entrances, and back  rooms to which vicious men and women  are admitted. It is an evil, and it was  to have been suppressed in Spokane, but  Spokane's mayor was tried and he has  been found a weakling.  The men of Nelson who cannot see  why workingmen should organize to  protect their interests were quite jubilant yesterday jn the belief that the  Le Roi directors had wired Bernard McDonald that they sustained him in the  course he had adopted to smash the  Rossland Miners' Union. According to  the press reports from London, no such  action was taken by the shareholders;  and, further, according to these same  reports, there are now but three directors in the company, and four is a quorum.  .   The arrest of the government agent  at Revelstoke for an alleged shortage  of $3000 is a warning to the Conservative party. None but men of tried honesty should be put on guard in offices  of responsibility and trust. Fauquier  could not live in the style that befitted  ��� a gentleman of his cloth on his salary,  and as he could not live in any other  style than befitted a gentleman, he had  to use the government funds without  first getting permission of the government.    The subordinate officials of Nelsou do  not lack the ability to perform the duties for which they are hired. They  simply, at times, are lacking in application; they have frequent recurrences of  a complaint known as "tired feeling."  There is but one remedy for the disease  when it has become chronic, that is,  "fire," and not "fire water."  Thorpe & Co. bottle it. Ironbrew.  -KeeTENArYrrr.

And Prominent Labor Leader.
Everybody'in the iron and steel business, and especially in the labor organizations connected therewith, calls him
■"Dorry" Shaffer. His name is Theodore
J.  Shaffer, and  his title,  president of
v the Amalgamated  Association  of Iron
:and Steel and Tin Workers.   Still, very
few call him Mr.  Shaffer, and nobody
L»'calls him Theodore.    He used to be a
minister, and ills maner of greeting a
•stranger. cis  the  glad-to-see-you,   conie-
:and-join-us method of the camp-meeting
exhorter. When he was a boy he worked
in the iron mills.    Then, in early man-
Iioocl, he studied theology, and preached
i   Methodist  pulpits   for "eight   years.
, After that his health broke and he kept
a grocery store.   Ho made some money,
_mt the old  liking foi*  the  iron" mills
came back and he went to Syork rolling
again.    He  has   always   been  a  good
union man, and his education and natural ability made him'most valuable to
the Amalgamated Association when the
complicated question of scales came up
each year.   When president Garland rc-
: tired   Shaffer   was   made   president   of
tlie association.   He is 45 years old now.
>• Shaffer got his education under difficulties.    He had to support a widowed
mother and some younger brothers and
sisters.    When he became imbued with
the idea that he had a call to preach the
• gospel he was a roller's helper, aged 17.
He  went  to  see  a Methodist  minister
of his acquaintance and was told just
what he would have to do.   He was getting good money—four or five dollars a
..day—in; the mills.   .If:: he gave that up.
'there would be no income:for the fam-
■• -'-ilyi X 'So he took a, night-shift job and
went to; the Wesleyan Theological Col-'-
'lege in. the daytime.; When he went' on
at ;.nightrhe took his books with him
and worked out his Latin conjugations
: with chalk on the housings of-his mill.
'-There,  too, he,, solved  his problems  in
V-algebra and studied the art of sentence-
-making.   He always had a book or rhetoric with him.    He had a certain rude
facility of speech and composition/ and
he studied- assiduously to perfect liim-
self.    At night,  when  the  great  rolls
were slowly turning out the sheet steel
he declaimed  amid  the  clamor  of  the
mills'and cultivated the power of throat
-and lung that enables him to be heard
when a thousand noisy iron workers are
-gathered in front of him.
Shaffer is *a tall man nearly six feet
in.his stockings. He is broad across the
shoulders and has an oval chest and the
slight stoop of the man who' has done
-much heavy work with his hands. ' His
.jiair was red when he was a boy. Man-;
Jiood changed it to that* indefinite indeterminate color the Scotch call "Sandy." His complexion is light, and the
red stubble of his beard gives his cheeks
the peculiar mottled apearance of the
strong man whose hair is light. His
hair is the most noticeable thing about
him. It is thick and bushy and is swept
back from his high forehead in a careless wave. His eyes are gray and far
apart. His nose is long and sharp. His
depressions under his eyes. His arms
are long and ungainly and his hands
huge and knotted. He walks with quick
stride, and at times almost runs, so
great is-his enthusiasm to get to the
place.for which he has started.
Shaffer speaks well. His elonuence if
Jike that of Bryan. He has the same
sort of a .musical, well-modulated voice,
and when he talks seems to get into a
frenzy of inspiration and rolls out his
words so fast it is often difficult to follow him. The ministerial teaching has
left its impress on him. He talks to
the iron workers are interspersed with
references to the Almighty and he
makes frequent Biblical allusions. At
times he seems almost to be preaching
a sermon. Then suddenly he cuts loose
in the familiar talk of the ironmen and
exhorts them to stand by and organize,
just as a roller would talk to a pudcller
or a heater.
Shaffer, when he was in the iron mills,
worked all about Pittsburg. He was in
the mills at McKeesport and at Wellsville. In 1S6S he worked as a riveter
on the big Pittsburg and Alleghany
bridge. The men in this section all
know him, and when he goes on the
platform he is greeted with cries of
"Hello, Dorry, do you remember old
times?" or "Hello, Dorry, you're getting
thin, old man!" -
Shaffer has a brain that works as
quick as lightning. He sees through a
proposition iri a minute and gives a direct answer almost before the statement
being, made to him is finished. He is
clumsy and almost uncouth at times in
his dealings with men, for he has none
of-the finesse of other labor leaders. He
jumps into an argument and hits out
right and left without regard to whom
he may hurt. The reporters are a great
trial to him. He has never before this
been accustomed to seeing press men,
except the labor men for the various
Pittsburg papers, all of whom he knows
intimately and who meet with him as-
personal friends rather than as news-
gatherers. Consequently, when a lot of
out-of-town correspondents begin to ask
•him rapid-fire questions he prances
around and gets excited and at times
vehement. He is so thoroughly impressed with the right of his cause that he
cannot see how any newspaper can
print, either editorially or in its news
columns, any criticism of the Amalgamated Association, ana when he sees
Interest allowed on deposits.   "Present rate
three per cent.
Manager Nelson Branch.
such criticism he takes it as a personal
affront and gives the correspondents of
the offending paper a rating every time
he sees them.
He is the wildest sort of enthusiast.
He believes absolutely that everything
connected with the Amalgamated-Association is exactly right, and that the
Steel Trust in this present argument is
absolutely wrong. No one can convince
him that he has a chance to lose. So
fervent is he' that he said in a. speech
to the Clark mills strikers: "Rather
than sign a scale that does not include
every man on strike or going on strike,
I would give up my place as president
of the Amalgamated Association." He
meant it.

Wanted the Money, not the Lover.
: A report of the arrest of a man and
woman at Calgary for stealing money
and jewelry at Portland,^Oregon, appeared in The Tribune this week. The
following from the Vancouver Province
gives additional particulars:.
Detective Frank Day of the Portland
police force left Vancouver this afternoon for Calgary, for the purpose  of
securing $7500, of stolen money, besides
a lot of jewelry.    The detective came
to; Vancouver on an exceedingly interesting case.   The money is owned by a
prominent  citizen  of . Portland  named
Henry Watson, and the manner in which
the cash was taken involves several people, besides those prominently in evidence.0 The disclosures  regarding the
case- caused   a  sensation  in  Portland,
where the parties were all well-known,
and the affair caused a greatv deal of
comment.    The trouble arose partially
out of a family disagreement,    It appears that Watson had been married to
a sister of Mrs;-Emma Burgess, who is
now under arrest in Calgary, with her
brother, George Callow.   The sister had
had trouble with Watson^ and they had
a separation.   Then Watson wanted to
marry Mrs. Burgess, who is a pretty
woman and a widow. .His affection was
apparently returned by the latter, and
the wedding would probably have taken
place this week, if all the arrangements
had been carried out according to program.   Unfortunately, Watson had business in Eastern Oregon, and he went
there.    Before  his   departure  he   left
his money, amounting to over $7000, in
the care of his bride-to-be.   He showed
her where the money was secreted in a
trunk, so that she could remove it in
case of fire.   According to detective Day,
Watson had just left the city when the
lady took all the money, and with her
brother left for the north.   They passed
through Mission Junction with the coin,
as well as a quantity of jewelry,  and
were   arrested   at   Calgary   on   Sunday
night.    Detective Day is now going up
to get the money back, and if he succeeds  in recovering the  cash,  he  will
not  bother  Mrs.   Burgess  nor  Callow,
who will be liberated.

They have decided on  the smelter and it will be run up as  quickly as possible.

A well-known railway man, who  .makes his headquarters at Rossland, has  referred a; bet 'to the sporting editor  of this high-class family journal to  decide. The" bet is as^follows: "A bets  B,- that the Rossland Miner, was first  named the Rossland Recorder, and that  Ross Thompson did riot help get out  the first number." Tile man that started  the Rossland Miner intended to name  the paper the Rosslahd Recorder, but  he was. compelledvto drop- that name,  because EberC. Smithgot. out a paper  at Colfax, named the Rossland Record  arid circulated it in Rossland a week  before the first number : of the Miner  was issued. Ross Thompson owned the  cabin in which the Miner was printed,,  and w illingly assisted iri: many ways  to get but the first number. He helped  do the presswork and acted" as "devil."  "Bert" Crane, the first president of the  Rossland Miners' Union, was assistant  "devil." John Houston- did the typesetting and the other heavy work. John  M. Burke, Peter Porter, and colonel Topping acted as assistant editors, and John  R. Cooke got up the diagram of the  mines which appeared -on one of its  pages.

"The Trout Lake Topic of Saturday last  says:     "The  returns  from  the recent  __sjyp_mejLt^of=Triune=ore=have=been=-re-=  ceived.   They give a net value on almost  21 tons of $238 to the ton.    The total  gross gold value was ?412.70, or about  $19 per ton.   The total gross silver value  is $4722.76, or within a few cents of $225  to the ton.   The total gross lead value  was $299.71, or a few cents over $14 to  the ton.   The total, gross, of all values  was $5435, and deducting $21' for freight  and treatment charges from the Landing, gives a net return of $4996.   From  this take the charge for freight from  the mine to the Landing, $25 per ton,  and the total proiit is $4471, or a total  profit per ton of $212.   Out of this will  have to be taken the cost of mining and  living expenses, which will reduce this  figure to about $200 per ton, which goes  into the pockets of the owners free of  any further tax on it, which is a wonderful showing with the metal market  in the shape it is today,"  Company Wants Tonnage.

Chief census commissioner Blue was  the other day asked if the, population  as given out by the census bureau would  result in any reduction in the parliamentary representation of Ontario. Mr.  Blue replied: .. "Something depends on  the correct interpretation of sub-section  4 of section 51 of the British North  American Act, which says that the number of members for a province shall not  he reduced unless the proportion which  the number of population of the prov  ince bears to the number of the aggregate population of Canada at the then  last preceding readjustment of the number of -members for the province is ascertained at the then latest census to be  diminished   by   one-twentieth   part   or  upwards.    Perhaps the meaning of this  language  will, be  more  clearly  understood by quoting number 21 of the resolutions   of  the   parliament  of   Canada,  which formed the basis of the Act of  Confederation,  and which  reads:     'No  reduction shall be made in the number  of members  returned  by  any  section  unless  its   population  shall   have   decreased relatively to the population of  the whole.-, union to the extent of five  per centum.'    Assuming that the final  figures of population will not materially change the proportion of the population of Ontario to the rest of the, Dominion it appears to be certain that "no  reduction whatever will be made in the  present representation /of that province  in parliament.   According to the census  of 1891 the population of Ontario to that  of the whole country was as  1000. to  2296, while by the present census; the  proportion is as 1000. to 2458. This makes  the proportion_of_reduction=aboutj=ohQ-=  thirty-second,   which,  being less, than  one-twentieth, of course brings Ontario  within the operation of the saving clause  of the Act, and not liable to any disturbance of its present representation.  Assuming the population of Ontario to  stand at the figures now published, the  total population of Canada must be increased  to  5,600,000  before any  reduction can be made in the representation  of Ontario,     o "  ���  Disaffection at the Capo.  LONDON, August 30.���The Cologne  Gazette's correspondent in Capetown  declares that the entire Cape Colony is  a "seething mass of disorder and  alarm." He asserts also that the Boers  are receiving support from all sides.  In the early part of August a correspondent of the Morning Post had a long  talk with lord Kitchener from which he  gathered that "it is not lord Kitchener  but the government that is to blame  for many of the present evils'."' Lord  Kitchener, it seems, complained that the  home government continually Worried  him about trivial details " merely to  reply to parliamentary heckling" and  this compelled him to enforce a strict  censorship over telegrams although personally he objected to the present sys-'  tern. He said he thougn _ correspondents  should be given great liberty and to be  made responsible.  ness  AUCTION SALE    ���  Dry Goods Gent5s Furuishiugs, Boots, Shoes, Hats and  Caps.
