 ��� �����**�������>���;-I  ���^���sps  *^^&t'  ESTABLISHED   1892  FRIDAY  MORNING,  SEPTEMBER  G,   1901  DAILY EDITION  JOE DEFINES HIS POSITION  SAYS   HE   WILL   SUPPORT   THE  DUNSMUIR GOVERNMENT  Provided. Their Policy Is Not Charged  Has No Uso for Smith Curtis,  of Rossland.  'VANCOUVER, September 5.���[Special  to The Tribune.]���Joseph Martin was interviewed this afternoon after having  consulted with- his political associates.  He said he intended to accord the government his support, provided no new  line op policy was promulgated whicli  -would interfere with the principles for.  -which he had always stood, and to which  -he still adhered. "I told Mr. Brown that  I would support him and the government  -when he mentioned the matter of entry  to me, and I am going to do so," said  Martin. "Then you will resign as leader  of the oppposition?" he was asked. "Certainly," was the reply. "There is now no  opposition, as far as"'I know, excepting  Smith Curtis, and B. C. Smith perhaps." Mr. Martin-added that so far  as his principles were concerned, he  would not hesitate to accept, a'"portfolio  ill the new cabinet, provided that it  suited his private convenience; but he  was careful to add, however, that he  ���would not under any circumstances accept a portfolio at present. The charge  pf Smith Curtis that he shaped a course  in which his followers were not consulted, Mr. Martin ridicules. He says  tnat the matter was fully discussed in  the opposition, caucus last session, but  at the very mention of the government  being supported Smith Curtis left the  room, saying he would not be- bound  by the caucus in such a course. . In the  meantime, lion. Mr. Eberts is administering the department of mines temporarily, aud no selection has been  made of a successor to Mr. McBride,  although there is a rumor current that  Denis Murphy, who is a Liberal, has  been offered the place vacated by McBride. Mr. Martin said that the government on the whole suited him pretty *  'well last session,. and lie thought - it  fortunate that the.province had-such a''  ���government, or a'much worse-state ol-  'affairs would have existed. Questioned ���  regarding what contingency he referred  to, he replied that the dissenting government supporters had wanted thr  opposition to join them to overthrow,  the government." Had the opposition,  done so, they would have dropped Mr.-  Wolls and- Mr. Dunsmuir and forme.  a , Conservative government. He said  Eberts had acted quite reasonably at  the last session, and he was prepared  to support a government of which he  .was a member.  The World tonight says Martin and  Dunsmuir are patching up their differences with president Hill and will do al.  in their power to aid tho Great Northern  in the Coast-Kootenay road and othei  schemes. Martin's action is thus sai.  to include a plan tq revenge .him'soli  on the Canadian" Pacific. It is reported  that Hugh P. Gilmour, M.P.P., will bi  offered the portfolio.of mines.

WASHINGTON, September 5. ��� A  careful translation at the state' department of the publisher* utterance of the  Venezuelan government on the subject  of the differences with Colombia disclose  tho fact that it is not as it was at first  reported, an identical note addressed to  the powers through their representatives' at Caracas. Instead, it appears  to bo something in the nature of a proclamation addressed to tlie world at large  and sighed by minister Blanco" in charge  of affairs. This fact .makes it impossible  for any.of tho_gqyernmenls of-the .world,  .to make any response'to the'note, which  may have'been an "object- with the Vene-  zulan - government: Dr. Silva, the Colombian minister, has sent..to, the state'  department a formal and written- acceptance on behalf of Colombia of the  American proposition ..o mediate. The  arrival of the Ranger at Panama makes  it impossible for commander Sargent of  the Machias to leave Colon temporarily  to meet any emergency even before the  arrival ,of tho Iowa at Panama. But  nothing less than an emergency would,  move him to this course, and to safeguard Colon in the absence of the Machias it will be necessary for commander Fields of the Ranger, lying at Panama, to send a portion of his small force  of marines and sailors across the isthmus by rail to Colon".

The German newspapers are, by desire of the  government, paying scant attention to  che Chinese mission in Germany. Prince  Chun's further stay here will probably  be brief.  The Big-Wagers Were a Fake.  NEW YORK, September 5.���The Evening World prints an interview with Walter J. Kingsley, the alleged commissioner for an English betting syndicate,  to the effect that the story of wafers,  between him and Pittsburg canitalists  aggregating $400,000 was a skillfully devised "fake."

LONDON, September 5.���Most of the  time of today's conference was taken up  by reports on the. progress of Methodism in the United States and Canada,  Mexico and South America. The proceedings were enlivened by an ardent  pro-English speech delivered by the  Rev. Joseph, Gibson of Ingersoll,. Ontario, who defended the action of the  British iii South Africa, amid the frequent interruptions from the British  delegates, one of whom finally declared  that if Mr. Gibson proceeded he would"  have to be answered in controversial  strain, whereon the- chairman called  Mr. Gibson out of order. The Rev. J. C.  Goucher of Baltimore read a paper on  "The present position rof Methodism in  the western section." *.  The Rev. J. D.-Hammond of Nashville, Tennessee, reported on Methodism  in the south, and the Rev. Johnson pf  Belleville, Ontario, reported for Canada.  Discussing the present position of Methodism, the Rev. Deckles of King Wil-  liamstown, Capo Colony, went into the  relations between the South African natives aiid the Europeans. He said he believed the war would purify the administration of the.natives. Bishop Hartzel,  missionary bishop of the Methodist  Episcopal church in South Africa, said  that the present time was the beginning  of another empire of Anglo Saxon civilization. The war .was merely an incident. Dr. Leonard of New York thanked  God for what Great Britain was doing  in South Africa and expressed the hope  that the' war would soon end with the  union jack floating everywhere.  ��� Accident in Australian Town.  - VICTORIA, September 5.���-The Miowera brings news of a serious accident  occurring at Quirindi last month. The  Imperial hotel balcony of that city collapsed with 150 people on it: Mr. Mcdonald, president of the Polo Club, had  just finished presenting the prizes to  the winners of the events, and was about  to present the cup to the Weetalabah  team", when the balcony began to sway.  Wailing went up from the ladies, the  flooring seemed' to give way also, and  the rafters "and* roofing came down.  Amidst the screams of the women, vigorous-efforts were made to extricate the  people, but it took several minutes to  set the timber and iron-away. Many  people .had. been seriously injured, and  women' we're .'dragge'd from, amongst the  debris. The balcony fell with a repo.v.t  ���like "a' cannon. The Imperial hotel interior'* was. like a hospital 'afterwards.  Many aged pastorialists' were present  with tlieir wives, sons, and daughters.  The people of the town soon gathered  and dragged the fallen timber and iron  away. It is estimated that 18 persons  sustained broken legs, 49 were seriously  injured, whilst a large number suffered  from minor injuries.  tire haul was $50,000. Tonight the  posses returned here having called the  bloodhounds from .the track. It has  been discovered that the robbers secured  one bag of gold which required the combined efforts of two' men to carry from  the express car to the engine. The  through safe was dynamited. While  the dogs were trailing it is said enough  was learned to place the guilty persons  who are believed to be from Texarkana,  one being a man, the remainder boys.  The arrest of the leader is looked for  hourly. The Cotton Belt has offered a  reward of $1S00 for the robbers and  the express company ten per cent of all  money recovered. All the posses, have-  been recalled to Texarkana and pursuit is now' confined strictly to Tex-',  arkana. * ' . .:,-���  INTERNATIONAL    CONTEST  EASTERN CANADIAN NEWS  Won by Canadian Team.

LONDON, September 5.���While a section of the English press has been printing sensational New York specials lately representing that all Americans despairs of keeping the America's cup, and  that even the New York Yacht Club  members are betting on the Shamrock,  the stories-give little real encouragement in English . yachting circles. The  feeling there.is reflected by the "Yachts-  =man,4^which=says=tpday:T-���Why==the.  fears of our cousins sliould be excited or  the hopes of sir Thomas,Lipton's friends  be raised by the turn of events is not  very easy to see.. Of course, if Constitution had beaten Columbia all through the  season, Ave should know that Herres-  choff had improved on his design. But  the fact that this is not proved to be tha  case indicates that the old design i.<  perfect. It simply shows that Columbia  is a very difficult boat to beat, and anj  one who has seen her will be quite prepared to admit that fact. Of one thing  we are quite certain, and that is, that  the chances are in favor of the defender, though Shamrock may make' a close  ii-Zht.       . '  Fought a Pitched Battle.  VICTORIA, September 5.���Information regarding the operations of the German warship correspondent, which was  recently dispatched to Matthias islands,  to punish the natives for the massacre  of Herr Mercker and three or four  others, forming a ' party of German  scientists, is received from ' Brisbane  through the arrival pf the Miowera this  morning. The massacre of the little  party occurred some six or seven months  or even longer ago, particulars of the  cruel manner in which they were killed  being- published soon after. The Cormorant, when sent to investigate the  affair, met with strong opposition. Her  crew was compelled, to fight a pitched  battle, and the result was most disastrous, the.natives sustaining, a loss of  80 killed and 17 captured. After they  had been thoroughly subdued the captured were taken to Herbert shoe, a  Gei man New Guinea.

MONTREAL, September 5.���"England is constantly progressing, and it  is nonsense to talk about its decadence  or that she is losing her prestige either  at home or abroad," was the declaration made.by lord Strathcona and Mount-  Royal on his arrival here. Lady Strathcona accompanied his lordship, and it  will be agreeable news .to thousands of  Canadians to know, that both'are in the  enjoyment of good health. " '  " Questioned as to the report that the  czar is thinking of intervening in the  South African war, and that he-will talk  the matter over with king Edward and  president Loubet, lord Strathcona said:  "There is not a shadow of .-truth in the  rumor.' There can be no interfering with  England's well defined policy in South  Africa, and I may add that, the czar of  Russia has his own-troubles without  interfering with ours." Continuing, lord  Strathcona said. "I. noticed a'report in  a New York-paper yestcr.day that the  prime' minister of - Great '.Britain ' was  about to retire from public life, but I  do "not think there is any foundation for  such-a report: I saw lord Salisubry quite  recently and he was in''good health and  full of vigor," sb I do- not ."anticipate, his  "retirement.from-the high position ..which  he fills with such signal ability and to  the well being of the British empire."  His lordship said that'the Canadian  credit was of the best, and he need not  say that the Dominion held - a high  place in the affections of the motherland. "Yes," lord Strathcona repeated with emphasis, "England is all right  and Canada should do all in her power  to help her, for the success of the Old  Country means the success of the Dominion of Canada. I am still high commissioner and working away the best I  can for Canada and the empire," was  his lordship's reply to a reference by  the interviewer to' certain rumors that  had been set afloat touching his resignation. Without ' committing himself  to Sydney or any other port, the high  commissioner, said he believed that the  passage across the ocean by the new  fast freight project could be made in  four days at least, and if such a ser-  ^vice=were=once=established=ho^said=that=  there was scarcely an end to the possibilities of such a project. He said  the Canadian line would have to possess ships quite as rapid as the best  ocean greyhounds out of .New York,  and anything inferior to these would  simply be out of the question.  Lord Strathcona said that the new  king is proving exceedingly popular to  all classes of his subjects and his tact  and good judgment are most remarkable.*- "His majesty," he added, "is in  perfect health and deals most vigorously with all the details of his exalted  position. England is much pleased at  the enthusiastic manner in which the  duke and' duchess of Cornwall and  York had been received in the different  countries over the sea, and I feel that  Canada will not be behind in Its sincere manifestations of loyalty and devotion."

LONDON, September 5.���President  McKinley's speech at the Pan-American .'exposition in Buffalo yesterday is  the theme of much comment in the London papers today. -"It will excite  throughout Europe," says the Standard,  "as keen interest as it will across the  western continent. It is the utterance  of a man who feels that he is at the  head of a great nation with vast ambitions and feels a new-born consciousness  of strength. American has become an  imperial power. Her national life is no  longer self-contained and interospective.  Heedless of scoffers at 'spread eagleism,'  tho United States will go their way regardless of attempted combinations  such as count Goluchowski has sketched,  and with a certain carelessness whether  or not they come into violent conflict  with any European power."  So Long as the Work Is Done���Agree-  . ment Between G.iser and Macdonald Produced in Court.  A Cheap Tunnel.  GLASGOW, September 5.���James Barton today explained to the Engineering  Congress, now in session here, the proposed tunnel between Scotland and Ireland. The committee which considered  the routes thought that the best one  was from a projecting portion of W'ig-  tonshire, where the Scotch coast is  within 25 miles of the coast of county  Antrim, Ireland. The cost is estimated  at   ��1,000,000.   ���      -  ROSSLAND, September 5.���[Special to  .The'Tribune.]���The Geiser case was continued before police magistrate today,  with a crowded and interested audience  in attendance.   Bernard McDonald was  examined by MacNeil for the prosecution.   He said there was a contract with  Geiser from the Le Roi No. 2 Company,  to break down and ship 75,000 tons'of  ore.   He produced the* agreement, dated  August 17th.    There was also a verbal  contract with  Geiser to ship ore from'  the second-class ore dump of the Le Roi  mine to Trail.    Speakin*. of the Alien  Labor law,  he told  Geiser he did  not  care where he got his men from, so long  as the work was done.   Elmer Treat, a  Baker City miner, told the same story  of being hired by Geiser in Baker City  to work at the Le Roi as was told by the  witness Stevenson yesterday, and. confirmed Stevenson's evidence.    Attorney ,  Kellogg   of   Northport ..explained   the '  American Alien Labor law, and the case  ���for   the   prosecution   was    closed.     A  lengthy   argument   followed   and   the.1  magistrate  reserved   his  decision  upon  the points raised by Mr. Daly for the -  defense.   Geiser was called on his own v  belialf.   His cross-examination was just  fairly-begun when the court rose for the  day.   The case will be resumed tomor-    '  row mornin*r. ' ',-.'-'  " ��� The ai rival here of some of the Whita"^'/;'  ker  Wright circulars jrssued  to  sharer.  holders of Le Roi last monthrhas caused,  some excitement,- as they show-the'clo'se  connection existing between-Wright-.and.,;,"  manager McDonald, and throw a/good  deal of light on the stand taken by the  manager on the labor struggle.  Pres dent Mckinley at Buffalo.   a , _  BUFFALO, September 5.���President's   '  day   at-   the   Pan-American   exposition    '  da\yned bright and clear with the tem-   *  perature-. suflicie'ntly  low  to -make the.*.-  day -all "tliat could be .desired. At. l;v;,  o'clock the president and Mr. Milburn, ;  with members of the party,in carriages, .'  all escorted by a troop of mounted po-,  lice and a platoon of the Twenty-fourth  signal corps, proceeded to the Lincoln  Park gate.- As tho president's carriage -  entered the grounds a salute of 21 guns  were fired. What was probably the  greatest crowd that ever assembled  on the Esplanade at the Pan-American  exhibition greeted the president with  ringing cheers as he ascended the stand  erected there. The Esplanade was  crowded to suffocation and the vast assemblage overflowed to the Court of  Fountains. President Milburn introduced the president, who spoke and congratulated the exposition on its splendor and glory and concluded his address  by saying: "We hope that all who are  represented here may he moved to higher and nobler efforts for their own and  the world's good, and that out of this  icount1=j--ma"y-comcrnot only"greater".om- =  merce and trade for us all, but, more  essential than these, relations of mutual  respect, confidence and friendship, which  will deepen and endure. Our earnest  prayer is that God will graciously vouchsafe prosperity, happiness, and peace to  all our neighbors, and like blessings to  all the peoples and powers of earth."  ''-"���J'; Xr.  11  Lacey s New Job.  VANCOUVER, September 5.���Major  Lacy R. Johnson, a resident of this city  since the summer of 1SS7, and one of  Vancouver's best known citizens, left  by the C. P. R. this afternoon for Montreal, where he goes to assume the position of assistant superintendent of  rolling stock of the C. P. R. Major  Johnson has lately been superintendent  of marine engineering in connection  with C. P. R. vessels on the China route,  and while his absence from this city  will be greatly felt among his large circle of friends and acquaintances, there  are none who do not congratulate him  upon the well-deserved promotion. A  great many people were down at the station to witness the departure of major  Johnson and to wish him good luck with  a hearty handshake.  Major   Johnson   was   well   knowi.   in-  British Columbia.   He ca_ne-t__-oug_��.th��  mountains with the C. P. B_,___id one o_. -  his first stations in this pro-iase waa at."

Upon tho removal o_ the  Yale shops to Vncouver, in the summer  of   1887,   major   Johnson   came  to  this  city, and has resided here ever since.  Surprised at Ecuador's Intentions  WASHINGTON, September 5.���Considerable surprise is uxpressed at the  news of the intention of Ecuador to invade Colombia. Senor Plaza, the new  president of the latter country, heretofore has given e\idence of his intention  to obesrvc strict neutrality between Colombia and Venezuela in their pending  difficulties. The real objective point is  believed to be where the invaders may  assist the Colombia revolutionists and  thoso who may be brought from Nicaragua. Reliance is placed, however, by  the Colombian oilicials in the United  States menrof-war at Panama to prevent any attack on the place. ���i��__nora..T_;^_giiw��_-  Ifc.

Eastern people got a severe  shaking np through the flotation of wildcat mining companies and through the  mismanagement of companies that were  not wildcats, and it will take some time  for these people to regain sufficient confidence in mining to make new ventures;  but there is yet much idle capital in the  East that can be secured for investment  in British Columbia once existing labor  troubles and other difficulties are adjusted. Good times are coming, and the  only thing needed is patience and a stiff  upper lip.    If the reports that come from Victoria are credible, the. one man in  the Dunsmuir government who is playing a despicable part is James Douglas  Prentice. According to the reports,  .he violontly opposed the entrance of  John Cunningham Brown- into. James  Dunsmuir's cabinet���until he (Prentice)  was made minister of finance. Once he  was given that position his opposition  ceased. Is Mr. Prentice a man of principle? If he opposed Mr. Brown's entrance into the cabinet on principle,  then he should have resigned as did  Richard McBride. But, apparently, his  opposition^was baised on no liighei*  grounds, than fear that Mr. Brown  wculd be made finance minister, a position he (Prentice)* coveted. Given that  pcpition, he at once ��� embraced the man  he, a few minutes before, had -violently  oppesed. James Dunsmuir, do your duty.

LESSON FROM NEW ZEALAND  State Aids Settlers,  The Toronto News- of last Saturday  has a.special article on New"Zealand  by W. E. Gunn. It is we'll worth reading;;  If the governments of the world would  follow New Zealand's example and subsidize colonization by loaning money'to  the numerous classes of the poor but deserving settlers in their respective countries, they would do more to promote  solid national progress than all their  much-vaunted * bonuses to wealthy corporations-can never hope to accomplish.  The farmers need capital, and when  supplied with it under favorable conditions, never fail to contribute largely  to the material advancement of the land  they inhabit. Canada depends almost  ���solely upon.the-strength. of its agricultural community, and is prosperous according to the wealth of the farming  interests; yet the Dominion has made  no effort to supply the tillers cf the soil  with the unrestricted principal they require. Money-lenders, many of whom  are modern Shylocks, and loan companies harass rather than help the poor  husbandman.  In '*the land of the long white, cloud"  the settler in need of ready cash has  only to go to the nearest postoffice to  secure from the national treasury a  large or small loan unincumbered with  lees, except those for* actual expenses,  free from enclosure and devoid of usurious provisions. State lending has  profited New Zealand to the extent of a  general 'reduction in interest charges, an  increased settlement, and the prosperity  which emanates from industrial, activity.  Pligh rates of interest and heavy legal  expenses in connection with mortgages  were established in the Commonwealth  during years of good prices and big profits, hut of course were never felt till  the produce market slumped in the early  =nineties.-r=^T-hen=a=howl=went=up-fr6m=-  the colonists, and the government, seeing that something would have to be  done to lift the burdens of the people  and remove all obstacles to the development of the land, passed the Advances  to Settlers' Act in the closing parliamentary session of '94. The preamble  of the measure read:  "Whereas, by reason of the high rates  of interest charged on the mortgage of  land, and the heavy incidental expenses,  connected therewith, settlers are heavily  burdened and the progress of the colony  is much retarded, and. "   "���  "Whereas, it is expedient that the  government should afford such relief in  the premises as is consistent with the  public safety,  "Be it enacted," etc.  The measure, which was accompanied  by a decline of 2 per cent on ��32,000,000  of landed indebtedness, and ��32,000,000  of other debts, authorized the borrowing  of ��3,000,000 within two years in sums  of ��1,50,000 per annum at a maximum  rate of 4 per cent. Amending acts extended the time for raising the second  installment to.six years.. The first million and a half pounds were realized by  the sale of 3 per cent inscribed Government stock at ��94 8s. 9d. per ��100, and  ��500,000 of the second sum has brought  an even better figure. ' The money is  being administered by the "Government  Advances to Settlers' Oflice," whose  chief official is called a superintendent.  He carries out the resolutions of a general board, which meets.weekly, or as  occasion requires, ��� to pass upon each  and every application for money. The  ofiice lends money on security of first  mortgage of lands, occupied for farming/dairying or market gardening purposes', and in some cases goes so far as  to aid manufacturing concerns and urban  residents.-  Loans are made on mortgages, repayable, principal and interest, by seventy-  three half yearly installments, and  fixed loans on freehold lands for terms  not exceeding ten years. Both the former and the. latter may be for any amount  from ��25 to ��3000, and are subject at  all times to a reduction of ��5 or any  multiple of ��5. Only 5 per cent interest  is charged on advances, but the amounts  collected monthly on installment loans  are figured out at the rate of G per cent,  the extra per cent being set aside for re-  Nelson.

Thus for a loan  of ��100 the borrower pays ��3 every  six months for thirty-six yojirs and  makes a seventy-third payment of ��1  16 shillings. On freehoiu property sixty  per cont will be loaned by the state and  on leasehold fifty per cent.   '  For a loan not exceeding  ��100, 10s.  6d.  Exceeding ��100, but not ��250,, ��l*ls.

The scale for mortgages under the  "Land Transfer Act, 1895," law costs of  preparing, or perusing, and of registering mortgage to be deducted from the  advance, is as follows:  If advance be not exceeding ��500,  10s.

The subsequent fees are as follows:  Mortgage form, 2 shillings; search fee,  2 shillings; registration, 10, shillings,  and every certificate of title after the  first,   2  shillings.  The cost of preparing, or perusing,  and of registering mortgages under the  "Deeds Registration Act, 1868 " including subsequent fees, to be deducted  from the advance, are as follows:  If   advance   be   not   exceeding   ��500,  ��2 10s.  For every additional ��500, 15s.  Cost-.or discharge, including registration fees, ��1 Is.  The business done under the act during the 'first five years of its enforcement is clearly shown by the following  table:  Numben*   of  applications   received'     8,778  Aggregate   amount   applied  for    ��2,881,310  Number of applications on  which advances' were authorized    ���.    n     6,831  Aggregate amount .loaned   ..��1,994,115  Number  of advance's authorized but declined by applicants    .'

The amount accepted by applicants  includes mortgages repaid and reinvested.  Of the ��2,000,000, advanced by the  government not one' shilling of *prin-  cipal or interest has been lost. The state  loan office, while directly benefiting the  farmer, gives indirect aid to the-citizen and does not shoulder either of them  with any-expense. The bloated capitalist naturally object to it, however, for*  now they receive low rates of interest,  where in bygone days exorbitant charges  were the rule.  In a word, state loan has emancipated  the great mass of New Zealand's people  from slavery-to note shavers and money  lenders, and given a strong impetus to  colonization.  to  to  to  Are the only kind to be found in our stock.

So far Mr. Nicols has practically paid for sucb work as.has been  done upon the property from the dumps  which were left from the former management, and the indications are that  there yet remains some 200 tons of ore  which will pay handsomely to be  worked. "    _  Mr. Nicols' is at present working a  force of 18 men and has up till the present taken out some 100 tons of ore,  which it is expected will average $25 to  the ton. In speaking-of the property  Mr. Nichols said that the aim of the former management seemed to be to clear  the mine of waste rather than of ore,  and that as the result of. this process  there was now in sight in the property  sufficient ore to keep the mill going  =to-fits=fullest"capacity=fdr=the=next=twcr  years. Since he has taken charge Mr.  Nicols has .endeavored to work up the  dumps left by the former management,  but the indications are that the No. 3  dump will not be reached this season.  This will force upon the property the  necessity of keeping up a supply of some  25 tons of ore per day, a supply which  Mr. Nicols says he is quite prepared to  furnish.  Mrs. Buxton to Wed.
