 ma0Mii_w_m**m*m_i*ma^mdmm**  ESTABLISHED   1892  MONDAY  MORNING,  SEPTEMBER  2,   1901  DAILY EDITION  FORD'S  EUROPEAN  GOSSIP  KRUO-ER SEEKING AN INTERVIEW  WITH THE CZAR.  The Transvaal Ex-President Has Been  in Europe Many Months Without  Making Any Headway.  NEW YORK, September .1.���The London correspondent of the New York  Tribune sends the following dispatch:  The movements and relations of the  royal figures on the European stage  made up the whole,of the news of midnight. It is reported from Copenhagen  that the czar and kins Edward will not  meet at Fredensburg, as has been previously announced. If this rumor be con-  lirmed, it will not be proof tliat anything has gone amiss, but merely that  it has been inconvenient to shorten the  king's stay at .Horn burg. The czar, while  on good terms with the king and German emperor, must consider the bearings of the dual alliance, and give pref-  , erence to France in ceremonial visits.  Ho is not likely to single out "England,  ior a deliberate alfront, and there is no  evidence thai he intends to-do so. The  Russian press is more hostile to Germany than to England, and this is an  indication that tne German emperor  rather than Edward VI1 would be  slighted if the czar were looking for an  opportunity to discriminate against  oiirier power. The kings desire to derive  all possible benefit from the waters at  Ilombiirg will be a natural explanation  'ir' the two sovereigns do not meet at  Frcdensberg.  The kowtow hitch over prince Chun's  mission is explained as due to ��� royal  > sensitiveness, Prince Chun is indifferent  "to the feelings of subo:u;nates,'and considers it beneath the dignity of a Chinese prince to kowtow himself. This is ti  subtle appeal to the German emperor's  ' sense of royal privilege, and may result  in a special dispensation relieving prince  Chun from the humiliating function of  prostrating himself:-anil 'genuflection,  and arranging,a suitable substitute. Tho  original tragedy of the Pekin embassies  plays down to the level of comic opera  * n the due'course of time.  Topsy turvydom is still the word that  describes South Africa. While general  French has been driving the guerillas to  ' ' the north of the Orange river, Scheep-  cr's commando seems to have bolted in  tho opposite direction, and to have got  within striking distance of the coast of  Cape Colony, 100 miles east of Capetown. Scheeper is one of the youngest  Boer commanders and may be mische-  vious enough to tumble into Capetown  at the moment when French is arranging for entrapping him in the southeast corner of the Orange River Colony.  Military men arc debating solemnly tho  chances of a general surrender of the  Boors during the next fortnight by a  preconcerted arrangement, but it is a  far cry from Scheeper at Ondtshoorn  to Botha and Delarey in the eastern  Transvaal and every guerilla leader is  tree to go as he pleases. Dewet has been  ���������ej'-orted at Zastron, in the Wepener  district, but the Hying Dutchman on the  wide sea is not more elusive. Piet De-  -7_iareyJs_a_^pi��SQ-Mr,_j*ut__he is not a  crafty general who has played skiTtlcs  -with Aldershot genius, and peace is still  a.cuckoo song when lord Kitchener is  forced to report a daring Boer raid on  the northern line, with the blowing up  of a train and the death of a gallant  I:-i_h officer.  An incident whicli has escaped general observation in England may have  a moral for Americans. It is the establishment of a German coaling station in  the Farsan, or Kermeteh group ol  ���feJands iii the Red sea. Russia has coveted r, harbor in these islands, but has*  wot vestured to take possession of the  group.!   Germany, without giving offense  ' to England, aiid probably by prearrange-  ���ment, has obtained a foothold there and  is treating the entire group as a possession of the empire. A coaling and  naval station will be established and extensive works constructed. This has  been done in the interest of German  commerce, in the far East and for the  sake of strengthening the navy, whicl.  th. emperor has laid down as the chief  work of. his reign. The time has gone  by when Russia can obtain a naval station near Aden and Massowah, since  the German emperor has closed tho  question. The moral of this episode  is that the emperor may have eyes upon  other sites for naval stations for the development of German commerce. Whilo  Americans are planning a canal across  Nicr.rr-gui*: or Darien, and negotiation,  over _ revision of the Clp.yton-Bulwer  ^treaty, he may be casting about for a  -n-j'val str.tion at St. TTTomas or in the  ���aijjSaoent islands. The purchase of .tho'  Danish group by the United States may  j*e fche wisest possible measure for anticipating his enterprise and avoiding  ���arj opeii (Challenge of the Monroe doctrine,  The Times has a dismal leader on  the opposition offered by Russia to the  (Oir-pning of the Queita-Nushki route be-  -.twsen India and Persia. This route  ���avoids Afghanistan territory aud passes  through Seistan to Birjand and Kerr-  ���man, and is a shorter and safer channel  i of trade between India and the commer-  ^���ciaj centers of Eastern Persia than the  ordinary Bandar-Abbas route. Russia,  having acouired effective control over  the customs service of Persia, by virtue  of a loan contracted last year, is making strenuous resistance to the development of traffic by the new route, and  Indian traders are convinced that Persia is virtually in the Russian sphere  of influence, and that British commerce  will be blocked and paralyzed. The  Times considers the decline of British  trade in that quarter a natural consequence of the inaction of the government when it might have been possible  to secure a loan from Loudon capitalists  and avoid arming Russia with fresh  resources for extending her influence  ,sPver Persia. It urges the necessity of  'more resolute British statesmanship, and  clearly is not hopeful that anything can  be done. The British foreign office has  been fortunate in having few advantages  taken by rival powers of the opportunity  offered by the South African war. It  owes its immunity from- attacks mainly  to the pacific purposes of the czar, and  to the close relations of the British  royal family and the continentalcourts.  'lhe czar having made engagements  with the French president and with Edward VII,'is importuned by Leyds for  an interview with ex-president Kruger.  It is not possible that he will grant this  request. Mr.' Kruger has been in Europe a year without meeting any European sovereign except queen Wilhelmina  and she was powerless to support a demand for intervention against Great  Britain.  Politics has reached its lowest ebb.  Mr. Broderick is the only minister  strictly at work in London, and he is  engaged on the routine business of the  Wc*.i* office. The comical story of tha  disappearance of a company of Yorkshire yeomanry was, easily explained,  but evidence of mismanagement in the  recruiting and dispatches of reserves to  the imperial yeomanry is more serious.  Transports are bringing back, week  by week, men who could neither ride:  nor shoot, and were physically unfit for  service. When these recruits were sent  out they received higher pay than the  veteran yeomanry already in the field,  but this grievance of the troops has been  removed. The war oflice is ordering  inquiries, but prestige cannot be restored by belated inquiries.  Mr. Hanbury has pleased Glasgow by'  praising the enterprise of that corporation in demanding the right to set up  a municipal telephone service, when the  postal authorities were fostering a private monopoly whicli was charging excessive rates. This opened the way for  a forecast that trusts of all kinds must  be fought before they succeed in strangling the public. Mr. Hanbury has'point-  cd to a municipal or national undertaking as hnvfiig the necessary leverage  for offering' resistance to private trusts  and monopolies. The experience of Glasgow and where provincial cities,justified  the belief that the business of a municipality which was practically a monopoly  can be arranged as well as that of any  number of private companies pooled inio  a gigantic .trust.:.'.  IS THE PORTFOLIO BROWN'S?  THE   VICTORIA,. COLONIST  IS AS  DUMB AS AN OYSTER.  The Victoria Times Says Brown Will  Be Taken Into the Cabinet as  Finance Minister.  CLEVELAND'S CLOUD BURST  Does $1,000,000 Damage." "    '  CLEVELAND, Ohio. .September 1 ���  ��� With'the breaking of dawn this morning the citizens of Cleveland awoke to  look upon a scene of unparalleled devastation and destruction caused by a raging flood. While the entire city was  more or less affected, the great volume  of raging water vented its anger over  miles of the eastern portion and caused  an amount of damage approximated at  ��1,000',000. The appalling overflow was  caused by a terrific rain that commenced  to fall shortly after two o'clock", turning  into a perfect cloudburst between the  hours of 3 and 5 o'clock, and then continued with great fury until nearly .10  o'clock. That no lives were lost is nothing short of a miracle, as many stories  _of__*_s_c_apes_fi*omAim wto*_gn^_ey_er___of_  the principal residence streets of the  city are told. The surging waters spread  over an area in the east end nearly eight  miles long and a mile and a half wide.  Great volumes of water poured over the  country from Doan and Giddings brooks  and rushed over Cedar avenue, back over  on East Prospect street, rushed like a  millrace down Lincoln avenue, and then  on the Glen Park, where houses were undermined as though built of straw, and  did almost incredible damage to streets  and property, bridges, trestles; and for  hours nothing seemed capable of stemming the tide. Hundreds of residents  who wero imprisoned in their homes  like stranded islanders were panic-  stricken. Danger signals were flashed  about the city as quickly as the disabled telephone would allow and the work  of rescue commenced. Rowboats plied  back and forth, assisting whole families  from perilous positions, but these proved  pitifully inadequate, and it was soon  found necessary to go to the extraordinary precaution of calling on the life  sr.vins crew from the river, a distance  of seven miles. The lifeboats were  ouickly loaded on wagons and hurried  to the scene of destruction.  Boers Blow Up a Train.  LONDON. August 31.���A dispatch  from lord Kitchener, dated Pretoria, today, says: A train was blown up today  between Watcrvaal and Hamans Kraal,  by 200 Boers, who at once fired on the  train, sotting it on fire. Lieutenant-  colonel Vandalcur, of the Irish Guards,  a most promising officer was killed.  Eight others were killed and seventeen  wounded.  LONDON, August 31.���Lord Kitchener  telegraphing from Pretoria today says:  "Garratt has captured Pict Delarye,  brother of the assistant commander-  general."  Anarchists Gat the Credit,  LONDON, September 1.���A special dispatch from St. Petersburg says: "A  train *.yas derailed 2S miles from St.  Petersburg, at a place where the Warsaw line was being repaired, a rail having been temporarily removed. As the  invalid grand duchess Alexandria Josh-  iovna, and several court officials were on  board, although uninjured, a rumor  spread that the incident was a nihilist  p.ttem-it.   A stoker v.'i'.s killed.  The Coast papers of Friday and Saturday came to hand last night. All  three of the "Vancouver papers say that  J. C. Brown of New Westminster will  be invited to join the Dunsmuir government as finance minister. The Victoria  Colonist of Saturday does not say a word  about the matter; but the Times of Friday afternoon contains the following:  It is understood that a successor to  hon. J. H. Turner as finance minister has  been selected in the person of an ex-  finance minister of the province, and  one of its veteran war-horses, J. C.  Brown of New Westminster. The choosing of a successor to Mr. Turner has  awaited the return of the premier,* who  it was understood was a warm advocate  of Mr. Brown's selection for the position. Other elements in the cabinet-  were strenuously opposed to the advent  of Mr. Brown, and a certain section of  the government's supporters, of whicli  John Houston of Nelson was the spokesman, insisted on the appointment of R.  F. Green, M.P.P., for Slocan. Mr. Green  made two or three trips to the capital  in pursuance of this campaign, but the  absence of the premier stood in the way  of anything being effected. Another  strong candidate for the position was H.  D. Helmcken, senior member for the  city, and it was believed that he was the  nominee of Mr. Turner himself for the  portfolio.-which he is about to vacate.  Mr. Brown's claims found a warm advocate and sponsor, it is generally believed,  in Joseph Martin, M.P.P.,: whose strong  canvass foiv.Mr. Brown would seem to  have been successfulwith the premie*  The decision of the premier will probably be communicated to the member for  New Westminster at once. His selection will involve the government-in two  bye-elections, namely, one for the City  of .Victoria, to fill the seat vacated by  hon. Mr. Turner/and the other, the necessary bye-election of the new cabinet  minister for..New Westminster. Among  politicians the prospective promotion of  the. New Westminster politician while  regarded as bringing to the government"  a member of tried ability, is likely to  minimize: the prestige of Mr. McBride  on the lower Mainland/and thus lead to  friction between the two ministers mentioned. Indeed, it is said that the minister from Dewdney threatened to resign  his portfolio if his Westminster colleague were admitted to the executive  council, but his protests had no influence with the premier, who insisted on '������  hf-ving his way, even if it cost him a vacant portfolio of mines. Hon. W. C.  Wells was asked today to confirm the  rumored selection of Mr. Brown, but declined to discuss the matter.  10:30 a. m., and at 11:12 passed up the  main ship channel under mainsail, club  topsail, jib staysail and jib topsail.  When the sheets were trimmed down to  the southeast breeze, she jumped away  at a 12-knot clip for awhile. At Oowl's  Head, the challenger luffed anil started  back, passing the new West Bank lighthouse at 1:12 p. m. with all hor crew  huddled aft on her windward rail, she  slipped through the water at a 13-knot  pace, helped along by strong ebb tide.  None but the Erin, wliich carried sir  ThomasLipton, could stand the pace she  set. Although during this run she  showed more of her bronze under body  than on any previous occasion, still her  lee rail was not at any stage of the  journey under the water. She seemed  to' be a very stiff boat.  MACDONALD IS A PLUNGER  HE  WANTS TO  BET  THOUSANDS  THAT HIS CABLES  Switching Chinese Ministers.  LONDON, September 2.���Lie Cluing  Faiir; the adopted son of Li Hung  Ch**.i-!-_. having declined.the St. Petersburg legation, says a dispatch to the  Times from Pekin, China has appointed  sir Chili Chen Lo Feng Luh, Chinese'  minister in London, to St. Petersburg,  transferring Wu Ting Fang from Washington t'o London.

The facts, however, seem to favor the corporation, inasmuch as in almost every instance they  have succeeded in starting those mills  which they said they would operate.  Adaitional men have been secured during the past week at the various plants  running in this city, and the managers  say they will have at least five more  plants, the Painters, in full operation,  double turn, within next week.      *'-  PITTSBURG. September 1.���The principal interest in strike matters today  was centered in the Dufresne plant,  where it was expected the strikers would  make a decided move toward closing  down the entire works. The report from  there tonight says the situation is critical, Two boss melters and all first helpers went to work as usual this morning,  and all twelve furnaces were charged.  Only one second helper went in, and ab  ladlemen stayed out. Sixty day turn  men are out, and the strikers say not a  man will report in the morning if the  open hearth is shut down. The forty-  inch mill must also shut down. This  mill supplies Monessen, Vandergrift, and  Limmils, hence the movement is important to the strikers. Mill officials say today that the strike is on, but they say  no serious results will follow.  John Redmond Talks.  LONDON, September 2.���John Redmond speaking yesterday in Westport,  Ireland, took up the Conservative challenge and characterized the policy of  reducing Ireland's representation in parliament, as hinted at by Mr. Balfour and  Mr. Chamberlain during the recent demonstration at Blenheim palace, as absurd. He declared that the Irish people  "Can safely disregard such threats and  rely upon the provision of the act of  union, which settles the question of representation." Dilating on what he called  "The collapse of the parliamentary system during the recent session," he said  that it proved that with a little pressure  the united Irish party could get anything they wanted.  Shamrock Gains ia Favor.  NEW   YORK,   August  31.���Shamrock  II sailed over the inside course today  with captain Jameson on hoard. She left  her   moorings  in Sandy  Hook  bay  at  A Length and a Half,  NEW; YORK, August 31.���Today was  set for the formal opening of the fall  racing season in the Metropolitan district, and thousands, of people flocked to  the scene at the Sheepshead Bay course  of the Coney Island Jockey Club to see  the'rich and classic Futurity decided.  The conditions vwere well nigh perfect,  a bright clear day and fast track, and a  record-breaking crowd was expected.  This was the fourteenth renewal of the  Futurity." It is .a produce slake, mares  being nominated in foal. The starting  fee is $250, and the association adds to  the entrance'.and starting fees ?750. The  race was to be run today for tho last  time over the old Futurity course, which  is 170 feet short of six furlongs. Only  two fihies have won in the history of  the race, Butterfly in 1S04 and L. C.  Qualloette in 1897, but it is thought Blue  Girl may make the third one to score  today. ��� Eighteen of the best youngsters  in training were announced as probable  starters today, including Goldsmith,  "Kiifg - Hanover;.-Nasturium,- Blue Girl,  and Yr.nhee.  The-betting ring was a seething mass  of humanity. The layers of odds were  besieged and a flood of money poured in.  It was almost impossible to fight one's  way near enough to the layers to get a  bet down. The rank and file could sec  nothing in the race but the Whitney  entries, Nasturum and King Hanover,  and opening at 9 to 5. they were played  clown to 7 to 5 and 12 to 10. The Madden horses, Yankee and Gunfire, were a  strong second choice at 4 to 1. When  Blue Girl was' scratched Heno and De-  reszke had a strong following at 10 to 1.  while Barron, the much-touted maiden,  and Lux Casta were also well played at  12 to 15 to 1, respectively. The others  ranged in price from 20 to 25 to 1, scattering bets being made on all of them.  In the paddock the scene \yas a pretty  one. The cancli~dateS~were-be"inT*rsalluTed-  and fitted for the struggle and a big  crowd watched the final touches.  There were two false breaks, and the  crowd was getting impatient, for the  word, when suddenly the familiar cry  of "they're off" sang through the stand.  It seemed to electrify the crowd and  everybody was on his feet echoing the  cry. At first it was a wild scramble for  nosition; Saturday was the first to  show, with King Hanover, Hyphen,  Yankee, and Dereszke close at his heels.  It was a good start for all except Heno,  who wheeled as the flag fell and was  left. At top speed they came to the  bend into the main track like a line of  cavalry, and at that point all eyes could  see the blue with brown cap of Mr.  Whitney's King Hanover on the rail and  a short neck before Penticont. Lux  Casta, Yankee, Dereszke, Caughnawage,  and Barron were well up and the most  prominent of the others. As they flashed nast the half mark it was still anybody's race. To everyone's surprise,  however, Nasturum, the pride of the  Whitney stables, was way back in the  -uck. *     ���  Into the last furlong they came for the  heartb-.-esU-in!*- dash to the wire. King  Hanover was gradually dropping back  and Odom sent Lux Casta to the front,  closely followed by Penticost, Yankee,  Dereszke, and Barron.  "The favorite is beaten," wailed the  crowd. "Lux Casta wins!" shi'ieked  those who were over-anxious to announce the result. But the race was not  over yet. O'Connor drew his whip on  Yankee and the colt responded in the  gamest manner, quickened his stride  and, foot by foot, crept up on the fly-  in**: leader. Odom was hard at work  wilh the whip and spur on Lux Casta  in an effort to earn tho coveted honors,  but Yankee, with long, even strides was  not to be denied. A hundred yards from  the wire the two were head and head.  Lux Casta hung on gamely, and for a  few strides neither could claim i'-ii advantage. It was a stirring struggle, a  bitter fight, and the monster crowd was  cheering and shouting. Then came the  cry "Yankee wins," as foot by foot ho  drew awav and passed under the wire  a length and a half in front.  Co'onhia's  Insurrection.  COLON, Colombia, September L��� Reinforcements numbering sixty left Colon  this evening for Bocas Del Torro.  ROSSLAND, Septcmbej** 1��� [Special  to The Tribune.]���Tho spectacle of-Bernard McDonald, manager of the Le Roi  mine parading Columbia avenue all yesterday morning and excitedly brandishing a marked check for $2500, which he  offered to wager that the cable news  published in his papery the Rossland  Miner, on Friday last was correct, has  created a rather painful impression in  Rossland. The Spokesman-Review of  yesterday published one of the famous  confirmatory cables in question, but unfortunately it has the name of Whittaker Wright attached to it, and this  rather spoils the whole of Mr. McDonald's fairy story, as Whittaker Wright's  cables no longer "go" in this community.  , The engineers, pumpmen and other  employees, who were left in the Le Roi  mines by the union at the timo the  strike was declared, were all called out  yesterday, and the non-union and union  men quit work. The mines now have  only "scab" men working. There were  new strike developments today.  Ernest Kennedy, one of Rossland's  pioneer brokers, returned today after a  year's visit to London.  GREAT  NORTHERN  WRECK  Over Thirty Killed.  KALISPELL, Montana, August 31.���It  is believed thirty-six lives were lost and  .thirteen persons were injured in the  wreck last night of a Great Northern  railway passenger train at Nyack, thirty  miles west of Kalispell. None of the  passengers were injuieu, the fatalities  having been confined to employes of the  road. The special car of assistant general superintendent H. L. Downs and a  day coach of laborers were demolished  and caught lire and burned. Superintendent-Downs and,his. son were instantly killed, as was also their cook.  Many laborers were killed and burned,  but the number cannot be estimated.  The sleeper caught fire, but it is'-reported that all passengers got out safely.  It is not known the extent or number  of injured among the passengers. AU  the physicians in Kalispell and a wrecking crew have been sent to the scene  of the accident. Ten cars of shingles  and" other freight caught fire, which  added to the horror of the disaster. A  train loaded with dead and injured will  arrive in a few hours. '  Superintendent Downs was at his supper when the cars struck, and it is the  general opinion of all that he with his  young son were killed instantly and that  they did not suffer.  Conductor Matthews, who was in  =cliaige=of=the=i'reight=-ti-ainj=is=almost=  crazed with grief over the sad accident  and ins trainmen aro likewise affected.  He was in the ofiice at Essex getting  orders and both brakemen were with  the engines. The air leaked and the  train, being on steep grade, slipped away  without the train crew's knowledge. It  dashed down theniountain at a tremendous rate of speed, variously estimated  from 75 to 100 miles an hour. The laborers killed were from Duluth, and were  coming west to work on the Jennings  branch of the Great Northern. They  were mostly Scandinavians and Norwegians. The coroner took charge of the  remains of the men killed and brought  them here. He will hold an inquest  tomorrow to determine the responsibility of  the wreck.  ST. PAUL, August 31.���General superintendent "Ward gave the Associated  Press the following statement: About  S:30 o'clock last evening, at Essex, Montana, eighteen cars broke loose from thu  rear end of the freight train and ran  down the hill, sixteen miles, to Nyack  Station, where it overtook a passenger  train, which was just starting out from  that station. In the collision, P. T.  Downs, assistant general superintendent,  was killed, together with his son, Kirk  T. Downs, his cook. Henry Blair, and  about twenty-five laborers, who were  moving west in a coach at the rear of  the train. None of the regular passengers on the train were injured. The  wreck took fire and the remains of all  except five of those killed were burned  and it is, therefore, not positively  known how many fatalities resulted. In  addition to those killed, twelve laborers  and brakeman Burke were injured. Mr.  Downs entered the railway service April  1st, 1SGS, as a brakmean on the Central  Vermont railroad. In ISSti he became  master ot trains on a division of the  Louisville & Nashville railroad, and after holding various positions with various Southern and Western roads, entered the service of the Great Northern  in 1S97.   Lord Salisbury's Ritirement.  LONDON, August 31.���A representative of tho Associated Press learns that  the rumors of lord Salisbury's retirement arc due to the existence of agitation within the premier's own family  that . he take the step in order to  preserve his health. Ilia sons and daughters believe tho strain of conducting the  affairs of the empire is bound to shorten  his life. In this they have been opposed  by several less closely related, members  of the Cecil family, and almost all the  leaders of the Unionist party. The latter, so far as can be ascertained, are  likely to prevail for the present at any  rate. Their contentions that relief from  the duties of premier would be a very  doubtful benefit to lord Salisbury's  health, which just now is not bad, considering his age. In former times when  his retirement was mooted, the opposition to such a step was based on the absolute necessity for lord Salisbury's  presence in the foreign office. Thanks  to lord Lansdowne's apparent ability to  handle that department, this necessity  no longer exists. But the theory is no a*  changed, and the Unionists admit that  the selection of a successor to lord Salisbury would perhaps precipitate an internecine struggle, Hence the extreme,  and as some of the members of lord Salisbury's family consider, almost inhuman pressure on the premier to retain power which, for himi has lost all  attraction. "���'���'",  American Sailors Enter tained.  LONDON, August 31.���-Seldom have so  many American war vessels '���> appeared  simultaneously in English ports. Scarcely had the Hartford and the Essex arrived in the Thames before the Chicago  excited the curiosity of Portsmouth citi-  vens.v Then the Dixie: arrived at Southampton, and now the Buffalo and crew  are being entertained at Greenock. The  Hartford and the; Essex have left, but  the others remain and are receiving the  most hospitable treatment. The English officers regret that the vessels.could  not all come to one port, so that a welcome could have been organized. The  officers are puzzled at the fact that the  European squadron at present consists  of the lonely little Chicago, and that  rear admiral Cromwell has no control  over or even communication with the  other American naval vessels now in  England. The arrival of the mayor and  the corporation of Southampton, in full  regalia alongside the 'Dixie created intense interest among the western lads  who are learning to be Jackies. Such an  array of gold and purple was something  new to them, and they commented upon  the visitors with all the vigor of first  impresions.  WORK HAS BEEN STOPPED  FOREMAN AND ARCHITECT CANNOT AGREE.  Poor   Workmanship   and   Refusal  to  Obey Instructions Are Charged  Against the Former.  Venezuela Shows Its Hand.  CARACAS, September 2.���The Venezuelan government has published a  memorandum, remitted to all foreign  nations, explaining of the, attitudevit  has adopted in the Venezuelan-Colombian controversy. In diplomatic circles  the question is considered A*ery serious.  LONDON STOCKS ARE EASIER  .  General Improvement Noted  LONDON, September 1.���The stock-  exchange situation may now be fairly  described as more hopeful than at any  other time since the vacation season began. As yet however, there is no great  buoyancy in any department. A number  of the leaders are cutting their holidays shorter than usual, apparently in  the hope of being on the spot whenever  there begins to be something doing.  Easy money continues to be a feature.  With its present reserve the Bank of  England views with apparent equinam-  ity prospective withdrawal for New  York. There seems to be little likelihood  of a sever autumnal stringency. At the  samo time continental exchanges are  -weakening-all-arouiidrand=itns= evident"  that London may be called upon to supply other demands than New York's.  Another feature, which sems to be persistently ignored by optimistic financial  critics, is the fact that the government  has never professed that the last consul  issue would provide for active operations in South Africa beyond October  15th. There seems small doubt that an  avalanche of criticism will accompany  the new loan which will inevitably bo  announced, and this will operate as a  serious setback for the present more  hopeful tone of the stock exchange. In  the meantime tlje small but steady absorption of gilt edged securities wliich  has been noted for the last fortnight  continues. Business in home railroad  stocks will bo slightly better than the  past week, although the statement of  twelve leading roads, while showing an  increase of ,e 192,000 in passenger earnings during the past nine weeks, showed  a decrease of .G30S,000 in freight earnings, as against the corresponding period  of last year.  The American department of the stock  exchange continues very active, coal  shares leading on further talk of community interest coupled with the aspect  of the steel strike which is regarded  as a breakdown. The substantial advance in Erie took bargain hunters off  their guard, but there was considerable  speculative demand, even at the rise,  on tho rumor that Erie common would  go to sixty. Mining shares in a way  showed the general feeling.of encouragement. The disposition of Whittaker  Wright at the meeting of the Lc Roi  Mining Company, Limited, added decidedly to the joyousness of thn situation.  The Rand now boasts of 3(S5 stamps, and  ono new permit to resume was issued  during the week. West Australians wero  stronger, outside buyers venturing in.  although timidly. Altogether, barring  accidents and the inevitable government  borrowing, the stock exchange seems to  be looking in the direction of more prosperous times.  Lord Strathcona in Montreal.  MONTREAL, September 1. ��� Lord  Strathcona and Mount Royal arrived in  the city today. In reply to a question of  resigning he said: "I am still high commissioner." Ho will remain here until  after the ducal visit, the party being entertained at his house here.  Work upon the federal government's  building was practically suspended on  Saturday by order of James A. McDonald, the government architect and clerk  in charge of the work. Ever since the  work was started there has been more  or less friction between the architect  and the foreman in charge of the work,  but on Saturday a crisis was reached  when the architect suspended the contractor's estimate, and called for the  discharge of foreman Doviaux, or some  assurance that for the future the forman  would comply with the requirements of  the contract.  As  before mentioned  there has  been  more or less friction between the foreman and the architect from the start,  but when it came to the setting of the  ashlar an open rupture occurred.  This  stone   is   from   tho   Mansfield   marble  quarry, and while the architcet has no  complaint whatever  to  make  with  the  quality of the stone, he has very serious  objections  to the  workmanship  of the  contractors upon the stone. The specifications   require   that  this  stone  shall  be dressed so that it shall have an even  bed, and  the trouble cropped  up with  practically the setting of the first stone.  It was not dressed to suit the architect,  who took exception to the spawls which  were set under it. This however was but  a   minor   objection   to   that   taken   to  the workmanship on the stone supplied '  from the quarry. Around the building'a  few feet from the ground, the plans call "  for a water table.  This is.required to  be chiselled, with a marginal draft he7'  low the wash but the architect complains  that  instead  of  being chiselled  is  has  been bush hammered, and the marginal draft has all the appearance of having put on with a corkscrew. Another^  and what may be regarded as an even  more serious objection taken by the architect was that some of the stone for  thp water table  had  virtually no bed,  coming off at one end to a feather point-)  The objections taken to the manner  in  which  the stone is cut aro that by  bush hammering the life of the stone is  destroyed,   and   the..appearance  of  the  building marred in that the manner in  which  the stone  is  dressed  will  cause  water to lodge on the water table. The  marble   is  also   at  fault  as   dimension  stone by reason of the fact that the variations in it are greater than those per-_  mittcd by the specifications. The objections taken to  the stone by reason of  the insufficient bod are that it will be  required   to   be   backed   up 'by   smaller  stuff with mortar,  in which  there will-  be   considerable  shrinkage,   thus   rendering the stone liable to crack as a result of the weight of the wall coming  upon a small surface. In short the architect is generally dissatisfied, and in  conversation with a Tribune representative said that he thought that some of  the  work   wliich   tlie   contractors  were  _tnying_to_put��� into-tho-building���would-  be rejected ou bridge work-.  It is not likely that anything further -  will be done on tho building until the  authorities at Ottawa arc heard from.  It is generally understood that the dif- :  Acuity will be determined by the political pull of the respective parties, but  the architect says ho is not afraid of,  this, wliich may bo taken to mean that  ho has a pull of his own. The action of  the government'in lotting the contract  to the eastern men was never approved  by tlio local Grits, and for tliis reason  they may Ire counted upon supporting  tho architect, who, whatever else may  bo said about him is certainly looking  to it that Nelson's show building is  not to he destroyed by inferior workmanship.

It was  then known that finance minister Turner was to leave the government in order to go to England as agent-general  for the province.    The vacancy caused  hy the retirement of Mr. Turner is to  he filled, not by one of the six who  jumped the traces, but by one of the six  whom the leader of the opposition placed  in line at the opportune time. John Cunningham Brown is an abler man than  Harry Helmcken, and his honesty has  never  been  questioned.    His  standing  in New Westminster must be high, for  he' is seldom defeated for office, and he  often runs.   He has been alderman and  mayor and member  of the legislative  assembly at different times.    He was  postmaster there for years, and resigned  that position to take office under "Joe"  Martin  as  minister  of finance,  which  was a sacrifice on his part.    "Joe" is  true to his friends, and when he had the  chance to do Mr. Brown a good turn, he  evidently did so.   How the selection will  be taken by the rank and file of the supporters of the Duinsnniir government is  a question.   Some of them will not like  it and will kick over the traces.   Others  will not like it,  but will stay in line.  Others,   again,   will   be   afraid   to   say  whether they like it or not.    Premier  Dunsmuir should  keep right on, since  he has made a beginning at reconstructing his cabinet, and make a clean sweep.  rTTlTTTrtTrTtTTrrfrTTTTTTTTTTTmtTTTTr  LADIES' SUNSHADES \  AT HALF PRICE.

Prosser.  The   Sandon   Paystreak   comes   out  squarely against a policy that will permit our natural resources, like coal and  ore, to he hauled across the boundary  line in order to build up the smelting  industry in the United States, and says  that if the  province was  governed by  far-seeing   men   no   such   condition   of  affairs would be allowed to exist:   The  Tribune  is  the  one  newspaper  in  the  province that has always stood for the  smelting of our ore at home. ' It was the  one paper in the province that favored  making the mineral tax 4 per cent, and  remitting half  or  all  on  ore smelted  within the province.   This was considered too drastic, but it was the right  policy.    It would have caused the removal of the Le Roi smelter to "British  Columbia, and it would have hastened  the  erection  of silver-lead  smelters  in  several districts.    But a howl went up  from the mine owners, who appear to  howl every time any policy is suggested  that wnl benefit the province.  o'clock the two big main sails went  aloft. On the Constitution much care  was taken in getting up this big piece  of canvas, and it was fully half an hour  before it was in place. The regatta committee announced that the yachts would  hen sent over a fifteen mile windward  and leeward course under the regular  America's cup conditions, with a time  limit of five and a half hours. The Columbia crossed the finish line at 3.02.1  and the Constitution crossed at 3.06.3,  four minutes two seconds behind Columbia. The official time for the start  was Columbia 11; 41 ;15. Constitution  11; 42; 06. The Columbia therefore  beats Constitution 3 minutes 17 seconds  elapsed time, 4 minutes 28 seconds corrected time.  Greenwood."Smelter Again in Blast.

John  Houston, Manager. Nolson, 13. "C.  The reported invitation to John Cunningham Brown, M.P.P., of New Westminster City, to enter the Dunsmuir  government was not unexpected. The  railway policy of the government at the  last session created a break in the ranks  of its supporters; and also a break in  the ranks of the opposition. The government was made aware that it could  not depend on the votes of Messrs.  Helmcken, McPhillips, and Hall of Victoria City, Hayward of Esquimau, Tat-  law of Vancouver, and Murphy of West  Yale. To even up this defection, the  leader of the opposition handed over the  votes of Messrs. Brown of New Westminster CUy, Mclnnis of Nanaimo City,  Staples of*3iar, Oliver of Delta, Gil-  be considered in the q'lestion. The government, on the repeated demands of  the people, made an appropriation for a  public building. Tenders were called for,  and the- lowest tender happened to be  that of a firm of contractors who live  at or near Ottawa, The tender is too  low for good work; hut that Is no reason why shoddy work should be substituted. In the West, fortune is gained  by experience, not by political pull. II  the men who have contracted to erect  the public building at Nelson lose money  in carrying out their contract, no one  is to blame but themselves. They should  have remained in the East, and allowed  Western men to take care of Western  contracts.  The official Gazette of this week contains the following announcement:  " William John Goepel, of the City of  " Nelson, Esquire, inspector of offices,  " to be government agent at Revelstoke,  " and to perform the duties of the  " offices held by Mr. F. G. Fauquier, re-  " tired." it is reported that the "retired" Mr. Fauquier admits he made  false entries in his books and used upwards of three thousand dollars belonging to the province. His friends are trying to raise the amount of the shortage.  Thomas Downie, chief train dispatcher  of the C. P. R. at Revelstoke, is an applicant for the position.

For the flrst time in the history of  the America cuy races it has been possible to ret. a line upon the two boats  which will meet off Sandy Hook; for we  take -it for- granted that unless Constitution can be brought to the 'iioint"iri,  whicli she can beat Columbia in a wind  of more than seven knots' strength, the  older boat will be called udou for the  second timo to reprerent this eou.i.ry  in the famous contest, says a writer in  the Scientific American. In 1S99 Columbia met Shamrock I nearly a dozen  times off Sandy Hook, and during the  present season S'-amrock II has been  tested against the, old challenger in  numberless trials under all possible sailing. condition.1*.  In the present uncertainty as to Constitution's full capabilities we must take  Columbia as a basis of comparison. In  I.S99 she beat Shamrock I by-10 minutes in an averase eight-knot breeze,  and again beat her-by six minutes. 16  seconds in a breeze of about 20 knots  an hour. Both of these races consisted  of windward and leeward work with no  reaching. It is'generally admitted, both  here and in England, that Shamrock I  suffered somewhat from poor handling,  and much more from the fact that her  spars and "standing, rigging were too  frail, and failed to keep the sails up to  the wind. The only changes, we arc  now informed, made in Shamrock I preparatory to her trials with Shamrock II,  were to reduce her sail-plan and  greatly strengthen and stiffen her spars,  with the result that her sails set admirably aud she now no longer carried.a.lee  helm. As the result of the, improved  set of her sails, her better helm, anil the  fine weatherly qualities she; developed,  the experts who have had charge other trials have assured the writer that  she is at least five minutes faster over  a 30-mile course,:the gairubeing chiefly  in windward work. To this may be  added a possible gain iii speed due to  the' better handling whicli she received  under her new captain.  In the later trials of Shamrock II,  when her best trim had been determined, she beat the older boat by the  following carefully-timed amounts i::  good whole-sail breezes: Going to windward she gained three minutes in 13 1-2  miles, the boats having split tacks to  avoid' interference; going to leeward in  a 17-knot breeze she gained 4 1-2 minutes in 13.1-2 miles, Shamrock II beiti-*  the leading boat; while on a broad reach  in a 13-knot breeze, with the wine':  slightly abaft the beam, she gained 4 1-4  minutes in seven miles. This 'last is  certainly a remarkable performance in  view of the fact that Shamrock I. n;  a tuning-up trial down the Jersey coast  and .back, reached for 30 knots at a  speed of 13 knots an hour." These results would indicate that Shamrock II  is about 12 minutes faster in a club-top  sail breeze than Shamrock I in the form  that the latter showed v/hen over her  -MnrlSOOr  London Ofllce, 60 Lombard Street.

For instance, this morning it is learned that a new suit of sails will arrive  in America on the steamship St. Louis,  and that the canvasses cost ?13,000.  Sir Thomas believes in resting one  day a week, and his men never work on  Sundr.r.  It will interest those Canadians who  are talking of building a yacht to race  for the America's cup to read something about the cost of such luxuries!  j-:e exact sum of, money paid for the  Columbia in 1S99 is not known, but .it  has been estimated., at not less than  $150,000. Without a" doubt it cost over  $50,000 to carry her .through the season;  probably the sum was much greater than  this. In the first part of the season  ; her owners paid $16,000 for three suits  of sails. And then there was the De-  fonder. whicli acted as a trial horse  to the Columbia. - It cost just $50,000  for her to be a, trial horse, but it was  paid without a groan.

The Question of the absolute security cf  the cup is dependent just now, evidently, up.Mi what further speed cau be developed in Constitution.  Sir Thomas Lipton's second effort ts  lift that cup is costing the Irish sportsman ft mint of money. It is estimated  that tho expense of having the first  Shamrock beaten by Columbia two years  ago was close to $1,000,000. The expense of the second Shamrock's defeat  or victory will probably be more than  that  The Lipton fleet at anchor today off  Stapleton, Staten Island, is an imposing  one, when it is considered that sport is  its object. It comprises five ships, and  . strung out in a line they make a formidable array. At the head of the line  to the north is the big steam yacht  Erin, one , of the finest vessels of her  kind afloat. Next in line is Shamrocks  tender, the Porto Rico, an ocean-going-  steamship, which, until chartered by  sir Thomas, had been in the fruit-  carrying trade between American ports  and the West Indies. Astern of the  Porto Rico lies the Jame.** A. Lr.wrence,  an ocean-going tug. The Lawrence,  which is one of the handsomest and fast-  rest tugs in New York harbor, is the busi-  jiess boat of the fleet. Fourth in line  js the 50-foot electric launch Dufferin,  ���the only American-built boat in the lot.  *3he was designed on sir Thomas' order  for special use as a dispatch boat, and  was only recently finished. To the extreme south of the line Is the beautiful,  green hull and towering mast of Shamrock II, the "hope of the British yachts-  men,"  This fleet is manned by crews num-  Ijering almost 200 men, and it is estimated that merely to keep his five ships  jn commission is costing sir Thomas almost $2000 a day.  Of course the construction of the cup  challenger is the biggest item. No one  but sir Thomas, designer "Watson, and  the Dennys, her builders, know exactly  what Shamrock II cost. But a guess  of $400,000 is not likely to be far wide  of the mark.    And then there are a  United States.

The London Daily Telegraph publishes  a letter of an officer of the fight in which  captain Bennett of the South African  Constabulary (major Bennett of Vancouver) was captured. The letter says  in part: ���---.'.  On Thursday we decided to take a  strong patrol over to Vryfontein and  Zurfontein to get some water barrels,  barbed wire, and other useful things.  We. sent out three white scouts about 5  a. m., who returned and reported thirteen Boers only upon the hill. It was  ordered that we should take the seven-  pound gun, and so we pulled out at 7  a. m., about 60 strong. We went forward, 40 men, and came on with about  20 as escort to the gun. ; Of these we  had to. leave five to hold a house to cover  our retreat, and so we went on. As we  went up^-the hill I heard very heavy  firing on. my front and right, and we received an order to gallop and shell  Zurfontein farms from the sky-line, as  the Canadians were in a hole. We were  straining along when suddenly I heard  the commanding officer blowing the  "rally-' on his horn, so while thinking  things were serious we had the order,  "About and gallop." Captain McDowall  came up and told us .to fire one round  and then gallop hard for Vereenging,  which we did. The rear guard, instead  of falling back, ybecame advance guard  and went like smoke. As the ground  was fairly rotten some of us had to go  20 yeards ahead and pilot the gun: Bullets began to hail around, and upon  turning I saw, the hill simply covered  'with men galloping like blazes towards  me.y We increased your pace, and turning round I saw men on each side of the  gun/and behind it, shooting and shouting, but still we kept on.  But it was no good, for we ran into  ploughed land, and had to pull up. The  Boei*s simply formed a solid mass round  the. gun, about 200 strong, and yelled  to me and others to' "Hands up." I  waited upon _ the flankers : to come up,  but they were captured; and the. Boers  were firing ��� at me from 20 to 30 yards,  several kneeling. Then foiir started for  me,' so I kissed my hand to them and  rode off, as I rode on Monday night.  Phew! It was a go; but my beauty  carried me through till I reached the  kraals by the coal mine dam.- There I.  found four men, and together we rode  back to try and cover captain McDow-  all's retreat andsee whatcpuld be done.  We collected some more men, and then  I heard the particulars. It appears Dewet was trying to pass north and somebody gave us away, and they simply  egged us on till they had us. cornered,  and then rode us down. Captain-Bennett .(Canadian) was taken by Dewet  himself. Our total casualties: One gun,  four killed, six wounded, and 24 prisoners, and one Kaffir scout shot in cold  blood as well. The Boers reported seven  killed, four dangerously wounded, and  20 slightly. A dispatch rider was sent  as hard as he could go to Vereenging  for help; but they did not turn-out for  ian=hour=and"a=halfrand=theh*only"at"ir  walk. And they must have seen us and  our gun���they did���and it was. within  the range of fire of the Vereenging  garrison guns. We are now waiting'  "events. I suppose it means a district  court-martial and the sack for some;,  but there was no cowardice, and it was  the rotten intelligence sent us from.  Vereenging, as Dewet told Bennett he  was nearly 4000 strong. They made our  drivers take the gun to the laager, and  they say that there were thousands'  there. They tried to come into action  against us, but the sergeant had thrown  away the rammer, handspike, lanyard  and sights���thank God!  Were Cowed With Water,  ST.

Nothing but an interruption  of isthmian traffic, which the United  States is pledged to keep open, or a.  threat directed against American interests, could induce the government to interfere.

BOOK BINDING  SPECIAL RJRED BLANK BOOKS  SPECIAL RULED FORMS  ���G. H. Manhart. who is employed by  the Nelson tramway company as motor-  man and lineman, had a close call for  his life yesterday. Early yesterday  morning was the time set for the firing of a number of blasts on tho wagon  road which the provincial government  is building to the mining properties to  the south of Nelson, and as it was feared  the shots would disturb the wires which  bring the electric current to the tramway company's station, the officers of  that company were notified to bo on  hand.  In order to interfere with the tramway company as little as possiule W.  A. McLean, who has charge of the road  construction for the provincial government, arranged matters so- that he the whole of his shots at one  time, and A.. V. Mason, manager of the  tramway company, had men on the  ground to cut the wires so that they  would not be destroyed by the blasts.  This precaution was well taken as there  were fifty shots fired all told. The firing  took place shortly after 4 o'clock Sunday morning, and as the shots were sent  off simultaneously,- there was a hurricane of-(lying rocks. The place.where  the firing occurred was at a point about  three miles from the city, on a bluff  whicli constitutes the highest portion  of the-roadway. The road here cornes  out about on a..level with the top of the  poles which carry the electric current  to the tramway company/and in order  to save the wires manager Mason had  them cut. This work was accomplished,  in plenty of time, and after tho shots  were fired Manhart and II. Q. Cummins  wore started to work repairing the  lines. They were still employed on this  work about 7,o'clock, when by some accident the current was turned on-at the  power station at Bonnington Falls, As  it happened Manhart was at the very  moment at the top of ono of the  poles making a splice of the wire, and  he received the greater portion of the  current through his body. Tlio current  was on for but a few niomants, but this  was sufficient to cause a severe burning  to Manhart's left hand and loft foot.  Manhart showed remarkable nerve. He  nover'" lost his head, When .he felt the  first shock of the current ho called to  the men below to ground tho wires, but  before they could comply -with his request the current was cut off at the  power house and Manhart slid down the  pole and fell over on the ground in an  unconscious condition. When he was  picked  UP jt was found  that his boot  had praet.i-jniiy bae.n burnt of. Ul�� foot  anil the leg of. his trousers, wa.s also on  fire. At first it was fqared that ho was  so severely burned that ho would lose  his leg, A messenger was at once, sent  to this city ou hoi'sebnt'l' for .medical,  assistance, and Dr. Doherty responded  in a hack.. He was aule to reach- the  camp, about a mile from the scene of the  accident, to which point Manhart had  htjpn r*n,*'rjeri in the meantime, and the  yiijtin* '*,yas'-}*����!eY*_cJ withQiit lOSS Of time,  to. tho hospital; Here his \ygunrt.s "were  dressed and th��3 very gratifying assurance received by his friends that his  foot would be saved, and that the victim of- the accident would be about in  the course of a week. Just how Manhart  escaped with his life is a mystery, as  the GuTrent which passes over the wires  is 20,00(1. vfflis, IJ.. js thought. }19 ,Y_Y_r  "that-the_blasting--hat~t,he-gffetj;-*oi="dis^  turbing the wires which wero left standing and that as a result Manhart did  not receive the full torce of the current.. -  What is now regarded as an amusing  accident happened to u. Q, Cummins,  the tramway -QiPtiany's engineer t*,*- the  sub-station,'While Manhart was receiving the shock on the pole Cummins, became entangled in one of the wires  which wore on the ground. The current  was just sufficiently strong to hold him  against his will and ho called out for  assistance, In response to his cries manager Mason name \ip to him ��.iul ordered  him to get put of the way of the wires.  Cummins replied that he could not.  Mason then went back a few paces and  came on Cummins ut lull tilt. The force  of tho Impact was sti flic-lent to divorce  Cummins from the wire and throw him  over on his back in safety. It is not  likoly that Cummins would have been  injured in any event, but he is none the  less thankful to Mason for the bunt  which he gave him, even if It might bo  considered unnecessarily harsh in the  light of subsequent events.  The report of the. blasts were sufficiently loud to awaken most of the  residents of the city. In all there were  50 hOl^s fired, some of which were down  seven feet. They moved a great mass of  rock, some of the pieces sent over the  bluff being fully twenty feet square.  There V'ero tlliee shots fired about midnight, vy'thoiit thfi Knowledge of the  men in charge pf the woru, rjjid r^n effort is now being made'to liii'ij out \yhy  fired them, If the person is apprehended  prosecution will follow, as the firing of  the shots" before the appointed time  might have resulted In jpsa Bf ]ifo,  Mining Records.

J, McLean, the Dominion commissioner on railway rates grievances, has  notified F. W.

The special committee of the  Nelson board of trade will have a memorial ready against the coming of the  commissioner. It is understood that their  kick will be that Nelson has not a sufficient margin in rates for its jobbing  trade to the points east of the city, and  a comparison of the rates is said to disclose the fact that better rates prevail  Where the G.
