TWEEN LIFE AND DEATH  IklNLEY'S CEIS1S HA8 NOT YET  BEEN REACHED.  lo   President's   Condition  Is   More  jHopeful, but the Physicians Have  Yet Little" to Say,  1/  Wr, '.1  IfSUFFALO, September 8.���-Tonight is  fcjluded^ within the time critical to tho  lesident. He is holding his own, as  Jcretary Cortelyou expressed it, and if  jl successfully^passes the night without  l>s of strength or the intervention of  T.eatening conditions his chances of  Icovery will be increased. He was seen  jnight by all of the physicians and  ligeons who are treating him and their  linion as expressed by the night bulle-  j is was favorable. They found his genial condition to" be unchanged, and  I em examination did not disclose anything of an unfavorable nature. They  | _ieve that the president is in a serious  rendition, and that the illness will not  I- past for another 48 hours. Popular  Junion continues to grow more opti-  I'lstic, but the opinion of professional  lien and officials that surround - the  rounded statesman remains in the shad-  Iv of doubt as to the outcome. * They  Jbpe for the best,' but until the ,case has  fc,n through the doubtful days,', and the  lariod of convalescence has come, they  Till not be reassured.*" r1*-- - * ���.,  I The Milbiirn home was very quiet to-  X'ght,' and "there were few callers.

His  condition   is   inspiring  his   physicians  -. with increasing confidence of his recov-  |j ery.s The 4 p. m. bulletin from the bed-  1 chamber was the best of, the day," and  I* -announced that the patient had slept  " ��quietly<"for f6ur~hours7~The-tempera-  -turo was 101, a" considerable improvc-  i'-ment from the earlier conditions.

'  BUFFALO, September 8.���The follow-  i Ing bulletin was issued by the physicians  at s*n   m.:    "The president is resting  | comfortably, and   there, is no   special  change since the last bulletin.

BUFFALO, September 8.���Major general  Brooke, in command of -military  forces here,  and senator Hanna camo  away from  the   Milburn   house  at  o  |* o'clock.    Senator Hanna said of the 4  o'clock bulletin.    "I want to be con-  ���. servative, but this bulletin simply adds  1*5 to my encouragement.    If this eontin-  1' -ties 34 hours longer I think wc will have  ?> something very satisfactory from  the  ���physicians  and  as  definite  as  human  1 -agency can devise.   That four hours of  I'-restful sleep the president has had Is  han  evidence  of almost ..normal  condi-  tions.   His mind is clear and his dispo-  \ -sition cheerful."   Whit the Penalty May Be.  2��TEW YORK, September 8,���Presidont  ! McKinley's recovery will mean that his  [-assassin can be confined in prison for  ien years, the maximum penalty lind-**  ihe penal code of New York state. Two  methods of procedure can be adopted-���  Jthe prisoner can be arraigned before a  [' justice of Erie county and can demand  1 an examination and will have the right  to counsel and time to prepare his defense, or the prisoner can waive this formality* and elect to go before the grand  . jury of Erie county.    The grand jury  \>t then can find an indictment of assault  in the first degree.  An act of congress providing a penalty  . for assault against the person ot the  I -president would, according to legaj au-  ���'thcritios, take precedence of the penal  code o_ -thp state of New York in case  '-the man made the attempt on president  -jvt.Kinley's 'life.    A search of such an  enactment by congress has been made.  Jt -would not be impossible to inflict  any greater punishment on the Anarchist Czolgosz'by any act of the legislature  ���Axing -a -more severe penalty for an attempt on the life of the president. The  (tleatli o�� the president would result in  the trial of the assailant for homicide  and his conviction would mean death  in the electric chair.  Sympathy in England,  LONDON, September 8���General re-  liof pervades England tonight over the  favorable reports regarding president  McKinley's condition and the prospects  of his recovery. Wei*e king Edward  lying wounded popular sympathy could  hai dly-have been stronger. Prayers for  tho recovery of Mr. McKinley were offered up in hundreds-of churches today,  notably St. Paul's," Westminster, and  Canterbury cathedral. Hundreds of callers made incessant inquiries throughout  the day at the United States embassy.  Among them were lord Pauncefote,  Charles,, Spencer Fiancis, minister of  Greece, who is en route to his post, and  United States senator Martin of iVr-  gima. Minister Francis said to the Associated Press representative* "I have  been a fiequent visitor to England for  many years, but I never have seen anything t like the general sympathy now  being evinced towards the president, and  it comes from the heart. f It is a natural  emotion and is unprecedented, being  greater than has ever been shown over  any event except perhaps the death of  queen Victoria. Everywhere you go McKinley's name is on the lips of the people, coupled with deeply - sympathetic  references. The intensity of this broad  spread feeling is marvelous, and bears  witness lo a friendship the depth of  which is scarcely realized..  King Edward has shown keen anxiety.  His fiist inquiry upon being met at Copenhagen by-the Danish royalties was  for news of >the president's condition,  and he immediately dispatched a congratulatory cablegram to ambassador  Choate. The foreign-* office and the  United States embassy are keeping the'  kine: fully informed of Mr. McKinley's  condition.  Dispatches are continually arriving  from the chief cities of the world 'describing, the sympathy of citizens and  'official circles, visits to .the embassies  and the legations, the prayers offered  in the churches, and the newspapers'  editorials are all., expressing - indignation., at the outrage. " ���  '     '*  LONDON, September 8.���The following telegram fi om king Edward at Fre-  densborg, to Mr. Choate, was received at  10 o'clock this evening* "I rejoice to  hear the favorable accounts of the president's health. God grant "that his life"  be pieserved.    (Signed) EdwardY',  . The Chicago Suspects ���  *��� CHICAGO, September 7.���The names  of,the men arrested here last night on  ,Uio charge, of being im^ratedjua ^the^  ? plot to"assaisinate .president "McKinlejr  are Abrani Isaac, Abram Isaac, ^r, Hip-  polyte Havel, Hemy'Tievelgo, Clemens  ,Pfoutzner,   Alfied   Schneider.   The -ex-  " animation of the pnsoneis lasted untrt  ,carly this morning, but the police re-'  fused to make public what information  'that had boen secured.t v  Captain Colleran, chief of the detective bureau, however, gave out the, foi;  "lowingr "The raid was made in consequence of ^a telegram from secret ser-(  vice officials in Buffalo asking us to investigate and.learn the wheieabouts or  headquarters of a paper known as the  Free Society. We traced the. owners to  the house of 515 Qarral avenue, and  there found the persons arrested, apparently in the midst of an important meetings All the prisoners admit they are anarchists and do not hesitate to say that  they have no regard for the laws as now  *=onforcedr1-Some-of-the-menr-I-learned,-  havo served terms in prjson in their native countries for attempted crimes inspired by the anarchistic beliefs.

Investigation Will Be Secret.  BUFFALO, September 7.���Director-  general Buchanan and secret agent Foster called at police headquarters shortly after 12 o'clock and were closeted for  some timo with superintendedt Bull and  district attorney Penny. When they lelt  it was announced that the secretary of  war had, through them, made a l equest  for complete secrecy in connection with  the investigation of the crime. District  attorney Penny said: "In order that tho  people may not bo unduly and improperly excited secretary of war Root has  asked that this matter be treated as  ouictly as possible. The making of a. l*.erp  ol this man with certain classes, or the  bitte: condemnation of him, would tend  to disturb the people, and'Mr. Roots  idea is to curb that. We will therefore  not make' public the confession made by  the prisoner, nor will we permit anyone  other than officials or witnesses to see  the prisoner. We fully appreciate the  force of the suggestion made by Mr.  Root and will do all we can to carry it  out. Thero is always an inclination to  oveiplay a man of the character of the  prisoner and we will do what we Van to  check ifc in this case. I cannot say when  the prisoner will be arraigned. I imagine that wo will take no formal action  against him until the result of the president's wounds is known,  Plot Batched in Chicago.  CLEVELAND, September 8.���-Later  information concerning the identity of  Czolgosz develops that he is the son of  Paul Czolgzosz, who it is said now lives  at 306 Fleet street in this city. Other  members of the family are -John, who  liyes at Lome with his fathei and stepmother, Michael, a soldier now serving  in tho Philippines, Vlid.on who is on his  father's farm, located i-ioris the Chagrin  Falls suburban line, and/jfasob of Mar-  -celline fame.  CHICAGO, September 8.���If any proof  were needed that Leon Czolgosz was the  guest of Chicago anarchists shortly be-  foer he went to Buffalo on his murderous mission,' it was supplied by three of  the prisoners at the central police station. They identified a photograph of the  murderer in "Red" as the picture of the  man whom they saw at the home of  Abram Isaac, 515 Carroll avenue, noi  longer ago than July J.2th. The eleven  men and women who were avowed anarchists, were^formally hooked tonight on  a charge of conspiracy to commit murder. They will be taken before justice  Prindeville tomorrow for a hearing. It  is settled practically that the prosecution will ask for a continuance to,the  end that tho police may have more time  for an investigation. This much was intimated tonight by, captain Colleian:,  "I am not prepared.to say that a conspiracy to kill president McKinley was  formed in Chicago," he fcaid. "The evidence in our possession has been turned;  ovei to the law department." ' *-'   ,  ��� ,   j    *     :    ��� x��  Europe's Eulers Sympathy.

In the  concluding part of his circular Whitaker'Wright puts, his several extiacts  from a letter written to ihim by Ber-  naid McDonald The date of the letter  is not given, but presumably it wa.  written two summers ago, on the steamship Seattle, when McDonald was on- his  way to Alaska. MoDonald plainly says  that a mining engineer named Litchens-  tatter oftered him a large sunrof money  in return for which the Le Roi was to  bo "worked." Ho also brings Henry  Bratnober into the story in such a way  that the San Fiancisco man is placed  in anything but a pleasing light,' and  as Biatuobei is to meet Frecheville here  next week and inspect the management  of the Le Roi mine and smelter, McDonald can hardly expect to escapca pretty  stiff reception from the investigation  committee.

Thev allow us a concession of 15 cents  per 100 pounds under the price given  our customers for immediate delivery,  and at the same time the corporation  holds back goods we ask for, under our  contract while making immediate shipment of the consumers' rush order.  The consequence is that we have been'  driven out of the iron and steel trade."  There is no question that the smelter  company is feeling its way to a control  of the entire business of the two noith-  eastcrn counties of Washington, and it  seems that their success is assured if  their progress is not impeded by some  law lesembling the British Columbia  Truck Act. Their facilities are such  that no private concern could hope to  compete, and the only obstacle which  they have to fear is the enactment of  a law pi ohjbiting the company store.

Several Vessels Wrecked  ���-PORT-HURONrSeptember 8.���Tonight  witnesses the result of one of the worst  i  storm disasters on the lake, owing to  the severe gale which has been blowing  for 24 hours. Piled up on shore are  many thousand dollars of vessel property, and the chances for getting them  off are slight, unless many thousand  dollars Z, are expended in dredging.  Strange to say,'in conection with this  great calamity there has been no loss  of life. The life-saving crew took off  38 persons last night, and the others  were beyond'danger. The barge Ama-  ranthe, owned by captain Kochter of  Detroit, is among the others. She was  loaded'with laths as was also the steamer Pauley. " Their cargoes are strewn  along the shore. Ever since last night  the Wawatam has been endeavoring to  release herself, and at 5 o'clock tonight  she succeeded in, getting out into the  lake. The tug Sama 0f Sarnia, Ontario,  which went out to the assistance of  wrecked boats, is grounded on the bottom and deserted by her crew, but will  be saved. ,  WASHINGTON, September 8 ���Dispatches received by the life-saving service today report a number of disasters  to lake craft and show that all told 5G  seamen were rescued by the different  life-saving stations on the lake. The  first of the dispatches came from Huron, and says 'that last night the  schooner Pauly with a1 crew of 12, the  schooner Amanthe with a crew of seven,  the schooner Sarnia with a crew of  eight, stranded about three, miles south  of Port Huron life-saving station and  all the men were rescued by th�� life-  saving service. A message from Harbor  Beach, Michigan, reports the stranding  of the schojon***-* John Wesley, south-  bound; from Port Huron to Alpena, with  a crew of eight, one and a half miles  south of Harbor Beach life-saving station. All on board were saved by the  life-saving crew. The same dispatch reports the rescue of a crew of five persons from the schooner Vienna of  Beamsville, Canada, which was stranded at 4 o'clock this morning, a mile  from Harbor Beach. The force at Point  Alx Barques, Michigan, reports the  stranding of the schooner Annie Jackson, from Alpena for Port Huron, two  and a haljf miles east of Point Aux  Barques, yesterday. The crew of seven  were saved by the life-saving station.  greater, risk: from "envy^and' hatred ibe-"Mm  ciuse -of (thoir/,inherited'* titles ;thari-_h*��S��iS  French? president* is~ fromylike^maiice5?^  -against the .holder of jfc.

The fact .  that president McKinley has been the  most uncompromising champion of pro- v-  tection, and has dealt the most crushing blow which the free trade cause ever  received is not forgotten, but there is  not a trace of English resentment in  print this morning. His remarkable utterance regarding reciprocity is extolled  as a final proof of statesmanship and the  success of his administration in restoring prestige and prosperity to America  is frankly conceded. Full justice is done  a great American president in England,  if the press has often been critic and  sarcastic heretofore.  There aie many sign_ of sincere grief  and anxiety in London. The bulletin  boards at the clubs aie scanned silently  and wistfully for better reports from  the surgeons, and many turn away with  moist eyes after reading the details of  the piesident's thoughtfulness when  wounded, and his desire that his wife  should be spared pain, that the murderer  should be protected'and that the exposition managers should not be inconvenienced. His goodness of heart was  revealed in these touching details and!  Englishmen joined their brothers across "  the sea in the hope that his life would  be spared.  _,  Boundary Ore Shipments.

John    Cunningham   Brown   has   been
taken into the Dunsmuir cabinet.   The
Revelstoke Giit organ Is much the same
as are all party organs; it would have
,the  people   believe   that   thp   country
must of necessity go to the devil when
-the opponents of its party are in office.
<The Tribune does not happen to be a
party  organ,  and   after  thirty   years'
practical experience ,-with party politi-
-cians, its editor believes" that no politi-
, cal   party  can   possibly   have. all   the
honest  and. capable   men   within   its
ranks.    A political  party, in order to
.exist, must have a policy differing from
that of its opponents;   but the leaders
and  the  rank  and  file  of  parties  are
much    alike.    The  ' Tribune   ..is    not
wild because premier Dunsmuir has seen
>'fit to take John Cunningham Brown into
his   cabinet,   for _ it  believes. that   Mr.
(Brown is a capable and an honest man,
^although' he is a follower of %and believer in Joseph' Martin.   But The Trib-
"une does,not approve of the course that
the premier lias adopted.   He had supporters who stood by him loyally when
* the\ V,v v V,   & . E.   crowd, •■ through   the
"Helmcken insurgents, did their best to
overthrow1 his government. - Several of
these supporters aie"*as capable and as
honest, as is..John Cunningham.^Brown.
'If the. premier was dissatisfied with'any
of the members of his cabinet—and-no
sane- man could long be satisfied \with
rsucb! councillors as James, Douglas' Prentice 1 and  Wilmer "C.  Wells—he ^ should
have, called *on his supporters,-, for 'advisers  before going' into * the. camp  of
tlieVopposition, in search,.for' material.
Ifvitb.. premier has arrived at,the con-
iciusion thata government "conducted.on,
party" lines'/will  be .'b'etter (for•.British
Columbia' than one' conducted, on 'nonparty' lines,' all ,well   and   good:     He
j. should''1 make a declaration-to'that effect, andv call in as - advisers inen'^ who
affiliate/with1 the party he" has decided
'to' support.   The "members; of the legis-
Y'lature'of jbhe.* opposite party will then
•b.j-inYopposition,   ah_  if they  are in
'the majority,..James'.Dunsmuir's tenure
of* office,'as premiers-will be brief.    He
c'annot./ride' the Martin'horse and the
Liberal _, horse ,i and J the   Conservative
horse all at the same time.    He must

of circumstances, thrown amongst. But,
notwithstanding this narrowness on the
part of Mr. Smith', will he tell the public
what either Mr. Hawthornthwaite of
Nanaimo or Mr. Curtis of Rossland has
ever done for Labor? Let instances of
good be specified;-the people'are tired
of generalities! ■ There are members of

have done "more, j ten times over, for

of British Columbia cannot be made
believe that a Martin party could give
the province its best £ru*/ernment, therefore they are opposed to any government

J. Mc-  (VJ, the Dominion commissioner ap-  Jted to inquire into the railway rate  ���/ances, it is evident that the matter  Mway rates is not a burning issue,  the board had a memorial to lay  |l*e   the   commissioner   setting   out  <\ changes which they thought should |  hade in the C.

(he   proceedings   opened   with'   thp  Iding cf the commission, authorizing  J Lean to_hold his investigation. Fol-  I'-ing this Mr. McLean made a few in-  fductory remarks. He.explained  that  object of the commission was to en-  lire as to the manner in which existing  [;*es on the railroads-met with the retirements of the different communities,  lid to ascertain whether the people were  Itisfied with them.   He added that since  I1 had been holding his enquiry there  Id been more or less  discussion with  lerence to the desirability of securing  [no amendment to the existing legis-  lion providing for tho regulation o.  I sting railway rates. This phase of the  I tter was also within the scope of the  jnmission, and if it was thought that  lie amendment was desirable it would  |competent for those interested to sug-  in what respect amendments should  [���made.

In submit-  ', he said it was the desire of the board  lhav it known that in their flnclln.*--  line matter cf rates thoy spoke* for tho  lire wholesale trade of the oty. Th'*  It clause of the report recitsd tha  Ire is at present a- large and well cs -  |lishod trade between Nelson and th"  |es of the southern portion or Bas*.  West Kootenay, but the figures tr-  Jiiibmitted would indicate to sc mo ex ���  |c the difficulties which confront Nel-  wholesale dealers in supplyin'*; thr*  |le of their own territory, tho N 2lson  |jlesalers being obliged to sac rlflco  "r own profit on the additional cost  Jtheir goods, such aditional cost L reing  Jsed by a higher inward rate than that  IJ by their competitors.

The report  added that while recognizing the difficulty of arranging rates to please everyone the members of the committee felt  that Nelson wholesalers should be given  a special wholesalers' schedule the same  as was granted to other wholesale centers, when shipments were made from a  wholesaler to a retailer.    -  The last clause iu the report dealt  ���with the practice* of mis-describing  goods in order that they might secure  more favorable classification. It recited  that it was well-known' that at times  goods were mis-described'in order to secure a lower rate. This left the wholesalers the choice of stooping to the same  practice or allowing their competitors to  secure business through this illegitimate  means. ��� The members of the committee  added that while they believed the rail-  "way companies were doing all iii their  % power to prevent this by tho employment of inspectors, they were-iof the  opinion that the best remedy .would be  for the government to make the misdescription of goods a penal offense.  There  were less  than  half a dozen  members of ,the board present by the  time the secretary had concluded the  reading of the report; and as the majority  of  them  wero  members  of the  special committee who had ,taken part  m the preparation of the report they  naturally had very little to add.   Percy  Chapman of the A. Macdonald Company, who is credited with most of the  work in the preparation of the special  committee's report, was the firstrmem-  ber to break the silence. -He said what  the committee was striving for was not  so much a reduction of rates as an* equalization of rates,  or the recognition of  Nelson as  a .distributing center for  a  certain area. - The*.committee-did- not  ���jxpect even this recognition to" be general, but to apply only to wholesalers  in their shipments to retailers, so that  Nelson wholesalers would be on a common   footing  with  wholesalers   in   the  cast and on tho Coast with respect to  points considered tributary to Nelson.  Robert Robertson of J.  Y.  Grifiin &  Companv mado a few remarks, but they  did not travel outside the report itself.  "Mr.   Robertson  raised  the  question  of  blanke.   rater,  to   other  points  in  the  ���vicinity' of  Nelson,   which  drew forth  fi reply from H. E. Macdonnel, general  ireight agent for the Canadian Pacific,  that this blanket rate worked both ways  in  that while  it might seem to work  mi injustice at one end it worked just  the  opposite from  the  other  end.    In  this connection he remaiked that Kaslo  and Rossland were .both nearer to the  eastern shipping points over the Ameri-"  can systems, but the result of the blanket rate  was. that Nelson  secured as  favorable a rate as either of them. This  was   the   nearest  approach   there  was  to a discussion on the question, and no  one desiring to speak the commissioner  declared the session closed.  25  19  37  49  37  22  31  24  22  85  64  H8  G3  47  42  BOOM IS ON AT PRINCETON  316 264 211 158.143  licouver to Fernie  Irect ...216 182 141 106   97  l'rom this it will be seen that while  fifth class freight charged a Nelson  |*_esaler to Fernie is 58 cents, his Van-  Iver- competitor has practically only  ���face 12 cents for this additional dis-  jce. : ...'.���_.___:_:.-;_,._Ji_j.ji_--��E'."  People Want a Jail  PRINCETON, September 5.���rSpccial  to The Tribune.]���Plans and specifications for Georgo R. Jackson's store and  offlco building have arrived and local  contractors are figuring on tho same.  Tho building is a two-story and a half  frame. On the first floor provision is  made for a roomy bank office with the  manager's private office in the rear. This  will occupy half the floor space. The  balance 16x32 feet will be used for a  store. The second story, 32x32 feet,  with a row of pillars down the center  supporting the ceiling, will be used for  a private hall. The style of the architecture is gothic, from plans prepared  by architect William McClure of Victoria. The structure when completed  will cost $2500. The building will be  erected on the 33-foot lot at the corner  of Fenchurch avenue and Bridge street,  adjoining the Star block. It is to be  ready for occupancy within five weeks.  Pending its completion Mr. Jackson will  remain in Victoria, where he will purchase the books, stationery, and other  necessary paraphernalia for his private  bank. -,,.-���  The provincial government's new office buiJ ding, a ?3500 frame structure, is  rapidly, nearing the' finishing point. The  painters are now. at work on the outside.  Inside some alteration will probably be  made over the original plans, so as  to provide for the whole of one side of  the building for a large room for court  purposes. If the present plans are carried out the .courtroom will be altogether too small and stuffy when crowded, and the room in the back, to be  used as a judges' private ofl3.ee much too  large for the purposes needed. By  throwing the two into one large-courtroom thero will still be left sufficient  space iii one corner for a change room  for  the  presiding  justice.

Dennis Murphy, M. L. A., is taking up  with attorney-general Eberts, the question of building a jail here. The town-  site company have agreed to donate  the government two lots immediately  in the rear of the government building,  which fronts on Vermillion avenue, for  this purpose. The jail will be surrounded with a high wooden stockade.  The past few months nas witnessed a  noticeable improvement in the' building  line. Over twenty new cottages and,  residences have been built and in several instances, the owners have gone to  no little additional expense in making  their homes and surroundings attractive.  Foreman Goldsborough of the government road gang has received instructions to give the new Howe truss bridge  across the Tulameen river a coat, of  paint for the better preservation of the  structure. Now that the bridge is completed and open for "traffic-the .town-  site people have agreed to grade 'Bridge  street and the approach to the bridge.'  This work wil make a' decided improvement to the main business thoroughfare"  of the town.  Sawmill Camp Development.  PRINCETON,  September 5.���[Special  to The Tribune.���The amount of assessment work performed this year on the  claims in' the Summit City camp lead  many miners 'to believe that when* a  railway   enters   the   Similkameen,   this,  camp will be the first producer. Sum-  .mit City camp is, as it's name would im-,  'ply, on the summit of the Hope range  of mountains, and is reached from here  by a, trail following up the 'Tulameen'  river 46 miles. The oro is galena and the  values rank it as being remarkably rich.  If in   time   a   railway   is. constructed  turough the Hope range following Rail--  road Pass as is fondly hoped, it will run  within' twelve miles of the' camp, with  which it can be" easily 'connected by a-  wagon road. In-this manner ore could'  be   rawhided" out >. during ��� the  winter  months, as is done in the Slocan, or  hauled-by wagon in-the summer.    ,  Frank Lambert, one of the poineer  'prospectors and claims owners of the  camp, who has just returned to town  after doing his annual assessment work,  gave the ��� correspondent of >The Tribune  the following information: On the Summit No. 2 a six-foot ledge has been uncovered carrying a paystreak -of 22  inches of * solid galena. The Mountain  View claim has a four foot vein of good,  ore. On the Gussie group, owned by  Silverthorne & Rogers, a force,of men  are now at work stripping the le'dge.  Samples of the ore gave returns of $295  in silver and lead. Dan Ross has opened  a 20-inch vein of clean galena that is exceptionally rich. Messrs. Amberty and  Thomas have also line showings of ore,  opened by recent assessments. * Altogether he says for the small amount of  work done the future of the camp is  improving.

It is reported that the Athabasca company has decided that it will not be desirable to run their tramway from the  Venus property; to the Athabasca ore  bins.

African Securities-Advance.  LONDON, September 8.���The immediate financial future hangs anxiously  on the outcome of president McKinley's  Injuries. Fortunately, perhaps, the stock  exchange was closed yesterday, and thus  the markets probably escaped a feverish  if not worse ending.   Otherwise the week  -was-rather-uninterestingr-^Until-deflnite  news is received from Buffalo'it is impossible to expect the speculative public  to embark upon any extensive undertakings, ,and thus a temporary check  > is  put- to"the. resumption of  activity  ' which recently seemed in sight. Next to  the attempted assassination of president  McKinley, the condition of money is the  dominant factor in the'situation. Gold  shipments of two or three millions for  New York are undoubtedly. imminent.  Possibly the amount will be considerably  exceeded on account of the present anxiety and uncertainty, and the natural  desire of the larger interests to entrencti  themselves against contingencies. It is  probably that the larger portion of what  is needed will -be down from France's  enormous reserve, though the Bank of  England could spare a couple of millions  without raising its rate more than one-  quarter per cent. The future course  of the market depends mainly upon the  amount that the United States needs.  During the past:week' stoeks were very  quiet and quotations were uninteresting.  Home railway securities were quiet with-  fractional Improvements,.and 'American  railways were Irregular and the changes  were mostly adverse. The dealings in  foreign, securities were few and small,  but mines on the contrary showed some  animation. West Australians Improved  decidedly on the elimination of- the  Whittaker Wright Interest.- There was  considerable continental enquiry in this  department. Judging from the August  returns of West.Australian gold exports  a renewal of confidence is justified.  More favorable South African war news  also helped Rands, while Debeers have  . risen 1 1-6 on continental buying, American enquiries, and confidence that the  coronation ceremonies of king Edward  will increase the demand for diamonds.  The talk of a ten point war tax is appar-,  ently without foundation, but there is  some apprehension locally owing to a  report that Americans are preparing to  corner the coronation supply.  ���*-m P'- "i.vyv.:���_ ^q.-S  HONDI TEA  J.

Jack Stewart of Nelson", who enlisted  for service in the South African constabulary, has written to_ friends in Nelson giving them his experiences in the  brush which the constabulary force had  with the Boers under Dewet in July last,  when three of them were killed and several wounded and taken prisoners. The  letter is written from Hout Kop, under  the date of July 25th, so that" it is several days later than those which reached  Nelson immediately after* the skirmish,  which occurred on July llth.  Stewart was with the advance party  which left,Hout Kop at 5:30 on the  morning of the llth. He says they kept  going until 10 o'clock, when they came  upon an advance guard, or what they  thought was a small party, of Boers.  Jack says the constabulary force thought-  they had an easy thing and galloped  toward the Boers. They poured a heavy  flrejnt6 the Boers for about an hour  and a half when finding they could not  dislodge them they ��� decided to retire.  The party of which Stewart was a member had been depending upon another  contingent for support, but when they  commenced to'fall back they found that  the supporting party had made tracks  for camp, t leaving them in the lurch.  The result' of this' was that the Boers  were able to completely surround theni  When the boys saw there was no way  out they, made a fine stand and the Boer  casualty'list is the" best'evidence of it.  There "were about twenty-seven men  ~in the party of which Stewart was*a  member, and'Yafter three had been killed  and several others wounded they decided  to'capitulate, but there was nothing disgraceful about it, as, by this time there  were^but nine men and captain*Benett  capable' of bearing" arms ^against" a Boer  force of- from 600 to 800, which "party was  in a position,to draw upon an equally  strong force about a mile away. When  Stewart "and the rest'of the prisoners  were taken into the Boer camp they  found "that the* Boer dead numbered 28,  with 32 wounded and 20 horses'disabled  and killed, which was not a bad record  for their small force. * Stewart says the  ' Boers were very short of supplies of _ all  kinds, and he and the other prisoners  were stripped of everything save their  underclothing andZ forced to walk nine  miles over the rough country in their  bare feet to the British camp. Stewart  says he would not have missed the af-  fairi for anything, but would not like  another- of" the same against the 'same  odds* for anything." Just-how any of  the party escaped alive te a mystery to  him. , *' ���  All those wounded in the engagement  of July llth were doing, well on the  date of Stewart's letter and several of  them reported for < duty again. 'W. J.  Thompson and George Partridge were  still in the hospital on the date of tho  skirmish and were not able to report for  duty at the date of Stewart's writingr  Towns an Easy Winner..  RAT PORTAGE, <*jptember 7. ���  Towns took the lead at the start and  was, never in danger. He increased '���his  lead gradually to the turn, which he  made much quicker than Gaudaur and  got around five lengths to the good.  Towns took it" easy on the^rcturn, but  kept well in the lead, finishing two  lengths and a half ahead. The time was  slow, 20.32. The course! was a little  choppy. Gaudaur took his defeat in good  style, and was first to shake hands with  the champion. Sullivan was-trying to  get all the bets ho could at even money  soon as the race was started, but only  got up $2500. With Towns well in the  lead he offered 2 to 1 with no takers.
