The   wires  fore,   however,   down   between   Nelson  '-id the Coast on Tusday night and no  Iq.'ticulars could be received, although  jpecials were filed at Vancouver by The  tribune  correspondent.   These   specials  jame through yesterday, and the latest  foes to show that Smith Curtis of Ross-  find is trying to shove himself to the  front as a  leader,  and  that  he is  en-  feavoring to get a majority of the mem-  Virs of the legislature to sign a round  |obin   to  the  lieutenant   governor   de-  landing that he call an extra session  ff the legislature.- This shows the cal-  jer of the maii. When premier Duns-  iiiir  meets  the  legislature  in  regular  lession the members of the house will  gave   a   chance to show that the premier  \o longer retains their confidence. Pos-  jbly by that time Smith Curtiswill have  pade another Hop, as sudden as was tho  we he made on the railway question,  .hen  a man  can  jump  from  government  ownership   of  railways  into  Jim  lill's breeches pockets, he is not to be  rasted. -  The Belated Dispatch.  VANCOUVER, September 3.���[Special  lo The Tribune.]���The news from Victoria of the crisis in the cabinet is the  fcole topic of conversation here. The  province says* that it is believed tho  premier will shortly retire, and tbat-W.  |W. B. Mclnnes, M.P.P. from North Na-  Inaimoj will succeed him. The whole  fthin.. is a virtual reversion to Martin-  |ism, the belief being that the premier's  [policy has been dictated by Mr. Martin,  land he-is'willing to-take Mr..Martin's  I advice rather than that of his own min-  'i.-.ters.  Hon. Mr. McBride .was seen this after-  'noon and said: - "My resignation is in  the hands of the lieutenana-governor.  for reasons which the public will surmise. I am packing up my effects and  will turn over my department to my successor os soon as he may be designated."  The World says this evening thai  Smith Curtis will be at the head of the  new party, but that gentleman says  nothing about it in a long interview published in the same.paper.  James F. Garden, M.P.P. of Vancouver, says: ;'.'I am certainly in direct  opposition to the government as at present constituted. I firmly believe that  it is Joseph Martin's influence which has.  [,ied the premier to take this unheard c_  step. - He thus, ywhile nominally leadei  of the opposition, has become the powe.  behind the throne, and practically obtains the position of power which he  would have occupied had not the people  =so=emphaticall>-rejectcd=him-at=the=la&ii  provincial election/ Some members o_  the house may stand for this, but I wil.  not."  R. G. Tatlow, M.P.P. of Vancouver,  says: "Mr. Dunsmuir admitted on the  floor of the house, when questioned b.>  Mr. McPhillips, that the principal legislation introduced during the session ha.  been submitted for. the approval of .Mi.  Martin, the leader of the opposition.  This conspiracy has been going on fo.  some time and I think the present situation is without parallel in constitutional history.'*____  Possible, but Not Probable.  VANCOUVER, September 4.���[Special  to   The   Tribune.]���The   possible  prospect of a special session of the provin-  J/cial legislature, is the principal feature  [in   the developments today in the cabinet  muddle  at  Victoria.      At  the  Head  o_  what is styled a Liberal-Labor o__)o_i-  i tion,   Smith  Curtis,   M.P.P.,   of   Ross-  iland,  who  is  here,   is   endeavoring  to  take every advantage of the trouble in  tlie cabinet.    He  declares  that now  is  the time to settle whether or not the  country is to be governed by the Mar-  f tin-Dunsmuir clique. The premier himself has so far maintained an absolute  [ silence   on   what   his   intentions   are.  [Smith Curtis' plan is that all members  [against the administration as at pres-  I ont ��� constituted, with hon. J. C. Brown  [as  a member  of  the cabinet���and  he  believes that, the majority of the house  lis against^.tfie government���shall sign  |a memorial-to the lieutenant-governor,  [sir Henry Jolly, asking him to call a  [special session of the house immediately,  {for the purposes of passing a want-of-  [confidence motion.   Mr. Curtis is pressing the point,  while public opinion is  at a high pitch and the proposal may be  [acceded to.    Hon. Richard McBride to-  :day formally gave up his office of min-  I aster of mines.   It is not announced who  [his successor will be.  Superintendent Duchesnay Killed  VANCOUVER, September 4.���[Special  [to The Tribune.]���E. J. Duchesnay, gen-  I oral superintendent of the Pacific division of the Canadian Pacific railway,  -was killed" this forenoon at No. 11 tun-  inel, 11 miles-west of North Bend. Mr.  [ Duchesnay was giving instructions to  his men when the fatality occurred. The  timber beams in the tunnel had caught  lire from a pasing train, and the men  were engaged in putting out tho fire.  Duchesnay was in the act of pointing  upwards at the flame -wnere he wished  the men to work, whon a large piece of  reck loosened by the fire, fell and struck  him on th head. He was killed almost'  instantly. Duchesnay was on. his way  home, having away since last May in  work connected with; the trackmen's  strike.

Getting a Slice of Washin.tcn  ���'���VANCOUVER, September "4.���It 'is currently reported that the new survey, of  the international boundary line will  leave the greater part of the town ol  Blaine, Washington, .on the Canadian  side. Color has been given to this story  from the fact that the Canadian survey  party at.present defining the boundary  is now working in the Sumas prairies  section, and some one has discovered  that if the Canadian lines are continued  they will show part of Blaine to be in  Canada. Engineer McArthur, in charge  of the Canadian survey party, was interviewed regarding the matter, but stated  nothing would be definitely known until  next summer,' when the joint-survey  would be made.  Yachtsmen Getting Anxious. '  BATEMAN'S POINT, Rhode Island,  September 4.���The early prospects for  good racing weather today for another  .contest^between^Colunibia^and^Constt--.  tution were discouraging to the New  York Yacht Club contingent, who are  anxious for a settlement of the vexed  question of a cup defender. At 9 o'clock  there was no breeze at all, but the preparations for the race went on as usual.  The turning marks were made ready,  the big box of signals was hauled out of  the locker, while off in the harbor both  the yachts had their, two headsails up in  stops and the covers were off the mainsails. ��� ���   The Islander investigation.  VICTORIA, September 4.���The investigation into the loss of the Islander  began today. A number of witnesses  wore examined. The pilot told practically the same story as given in his interviews, and denied all reports that he  and the captain were under the influence of liquor. Mate Neurotsos, watchr  man Ward, chief engineer Brownlee and  other engineers, purser Bishop and  quartermaster Ferry gave evidence. The  evidence differed little from that published in the interviews; but 'the majority denied the charges made that the  master and pilot were intoxicated.

A Vancouver Island Strike  DUNCANS, Sept. 4.���A large body  of ore is reported to have been struck  at the bottom of the shaft at the Tyee  mine at Mount Sicker. The ore, which  is at a depth of 230 feet, is wonderfully rich. It is twelve feet in width and  no walls found. The discovery, which  is thought to be ou the Leonora load,  will enable the Tyee people -to begin  shipping at once.  The meeting of the parishioners of St.  Saviour's church which was held in the  school room last evening for the purpose  of considering the matter of the resignation of Rev. A. H. Akehurst, as Vector, was probably the liveliest that has  taken place in the school building since  it was built The opinion entertained  ' by the majority of those in attendance  was that the meeting had been called  for the purpose of endorsing the action  of the church committee in accepting  the resignation of the rector,, but when  they got there they thought from the  proceedings that an organized effort was  being made to have the rector withdraw  from the position which he had taken  and retain his connection with the parish. The result was that the meeting  became rather heated, and .several of  those in attendance allowed their feelings or their prejudices to carry them  too far, rendering themselves turbulent  in the expression of -their feelings and  wishes. To such- an extent was this  the case that the proceedings more  closely resembled a meeting of ward politicians endeavoring to whip their followers in line than a duly constituted  church meeting. The meeting lasted  for two hours and a half, and at times  feeling ran so high that to venture any  remarks on. the one side or the other-  was sure to call forth some short and  sharp retort from those who thought  differently. This led one of the speakers, who took a prominent part in the  discussion, to be cautious enou_*li to  preface his remarks with the observation  that he would venture to make.them  even at the risk of its being said he was  hot-a-gentleman _    ...���.,������  From the manner in whicli tlie meeting divided upon the motions made it  was easy to see that those who were  against the -rector were more in number than those who were for him, but  there was good fighting stuff in the rector's following and a bunch of themjiear  the door kept up a running fire of comment, expressive of their opinion of the  members who were trying to checkmate  any inducement offered for the with-.  drawal of the. rector's resignation. This  led one of the an tis to remark, while  he was on his feet, that although he had  been connected with the church for ten  years he had never since his connection  with it made the acquaintance in the  church of a number of those who were  intruding their opinions arid comments  upon the meeting from the rear of the  room. This was clearly an intimation  that the friends of the rector had stuffed  the meeting, and it was not well received. Later on in the meeting the  _suggeAtjon__was_ made _that the rectgr  ^should retire while certain matters, were  being discussed, when a stout champion  of the rector shouted out in protest that  the antis had said so much behind the  rector's back that they might well say  anything else that remained to be said  to his face.  During the discussion which followed  upon the main motion that the recto:*  should withdraw his resignation, the  rector, his baby, the church services  and Mr. Harrison's cows became hopelessly mixed up. One -of the reasons  cited why he should no longer retain his  connection with the church was that  on a certain Good Friday, during one of  the most solemn services connected with  the church, the rector had deputed his  curate, Rev. D. Rhodes, to take the services, while he in the view of certain  members of the congregation committed  the mortal sin of dividing his time between picking some weeds out of his  garden and keeping the baby from crying by wheeling it about in a perambulator. The cows got into the discussion  by reason of the fact that they belonged  to a member of the congregation. The  owner of the cows was unlucky enough  to become ill, and the cows were so circumstanced that they required to be  milked whether their owner was ill or  not. The attempt was made to show  that the rector was at fault in that he  did not visit the cows and see that they  were milked, or see that some one else  did. The friends of the rector contended  that this point was not well taken, but  they were in the minority and the cows  were admitted.  To get back to the -beginning, it might  be said that when the meeting was opened Rev. A. H. Akehurst gave the parishioners an explanation of the circumstances leading up to his resignation.  He explained that while he was in Kamloops an opening had presented itself  to him to accept the office which had  been vacated by Rev. E. P. Flewelling,  several members of the church having  approached him upon the subject in  their individual capacity and asked him  to take charge of that parish. A., a result he had written to his warden, asking him whether it would be in the interests of the church, which he had at  heart, to tender his resignation. His  warden, feeling that it was too important for him to answer on his own responsibility,   called  a  meeting  of  the  church committee, and the committee  had written him in reply that it would  be in their opinion, all things considered, in the interests of thb church and  parish for him to resign. Upon receipt  of this letter, 'without further consultation with the committee, he had sent his  resignation to the bishop, and the same  had been accepted by. the bishop in a  letter to the church wardens. He had  later suggested to the wardens that they  call the present meeting in order that  he cpiild lay before the parishioners the  circumstances leading up to his resignation. The rector then vacated the chair  and George Johnstone, peoples' warden,  was appointed to preside over the meet-  in*:.  The first motion of note was moved  by H. E. Croasdaile, seconded by Mr.-  Clark. It was in effect that the members  of the church express their confidence in  Rev. A. H. Akehurst and ask him to  withdraw his resignation and retain his  connection with the church. This was  supported by the' mover and seconder,  Mr. Rowley, and several others in warm  speeches. The opposition to it came  from R. W. Hannington, Fred Irvine, S.  P. Tuck, W. Irvine, E. A. Crease, C. D.  J. Christie, A. G. Gamble, and others.  The meeting .had got into a hopeless  tanrrle over the matter when H. Bird,  on behalf of the church commitee, made  an explanation of the committee's position. Personally he said he was very  fond of Rev. Mr. Akehurst and had the  . greatest respect for him both as a clergyman and as an individual, but in view  of the disseution and opposition which  existed in the parish he thought it  would be for the. best interest of the  church that he should resign, and he had  united with the church committee in requesting Mr. Irvine-tq communicate this  as the unanimous opinion of the committee to the rector.  This brought matters to a head and  the motion of Mr. Croasdaile was sidetracked by a motion to adjourn, which  was carried. Before putting this motion the chairmtn called attention to  the suggestion of the bishop that the  members of he church should give their  retiring pastor a hearty send-off., in rec-  ognition-of his labors in the parish for  the past eight years, hut in view of the  expressions which had been drawn forth  during the meeting he said that he very  much regretted he did- not see how such  could be done as.coming from the members of the church as a whole.  The meeting was then declared to be  adjourned and the dissenting factions  filed out- ' .   AN INTERESTING TRIAL ON  CHINA'S  CRIME  EXPIATED  PRINCE CHUN KOWTOWS TO THE  -     GERMAN EMPEROR.  And That High and Mighty Potentate  Looks Stern, Then Relaxes and  Visits the Chinaman.  A TEST CASE UNDER THE ALIEN  LABOR LAW.  Mr. Geiser, of OregoD, Is Likely to Be  "      "Hit in the Neck, and Hit  Hard"  ROSSLAND, September ,4.���[Special  to The Tribune.]���The case; against Al  Geiser, the Baker City contractor, for  violation of the Alien Labor law, was  commenced in the police y.court this  morning.. The city hall was packed and  many were unable to gain admittance.  -'Bernard^M-:cdonald=was--absent=-when=  called, but  ho will be here  tomorrow.  Stevenson, a Baker City miner, testified to being hired by Geiser to come  up to Rossland to work in the Le Roi.  He swore positively that Geiser told  him that all trouble with the miners  was settled for good, and that the union  miners were going to work for him.  Geiser told him that he could only ticket  him to Northport on account of the  Alien Labor law, but that it was easy  to get into Rossland from Northport.  The witness only found out that he had  been badly taken in When the special  car which brought himself, along with  GO others from Missouri, stopped at  Northport. When he learned the truth,  he reproached Geiser in strong terms  for his deception but Geiser only replied: "Hit him on the heck, and hit him  hard; it will not cost you any thing;  I'll look after you," referring to a bystander who had told the witness of the  true situation in Rossland. Stevenson  told a perfectly straight story and Daly  on cross-examination was not able to  shake the witness.  The ease was adjourned until tomorrow for the examination of Bernard  Macdonald -and other evidence.  Thirty of the Missouriaus, recently  brought to Northport under the most  gross misrepresentations, left for the  south this afternoon. Bernard Macdonald spent all yesterday and part of today trying to get the men to go to work,  but they would not take his adivce.  Case Adjourned.  ROSSLAND, September 4.���[Special  to The Tribune.]���The hearing of the  charge against Albert Geiser, of Baker  City, Oregon, of having brought one  Neil Stevenson from that point under  contract to work in the Le Roi mine  here contrary to the alien Labor Law,  was commenced this morning before  police magistrate Boultbee. The only  evidence submitted was that of the complainant, and his testimony was severely shaken in tho course of a lengthy  cross - examination by honorable T.  Mayne Daly, K. C. counsel for the defense. Tomorrow the case will be resumed and concluded.  BERLIN, September 4.���Emperor William's reception of tho Chinese mission  of expiation, headed by prince Chun,  which' took place today at Potsdam,  was marked with all the severity consistent with an audience 'nominally  friendly. The Chinese'imperial envoy  on entering the palace was not accorded a salute hy the guard du corps. Emperor William received him seated. The  buttons and epaulets of his majesty's  white uniform were enveloped in crepe.  Prince Chun bowed thrice on entering  and leaving. Emperor William remained seated during the reading of the Chinese address.  Afterwards, however, he relaxed his  stern demeanor and welcomed the envoy courteously, and subsquently, accompanied by his adjutant, he . called  upon prince Chun at the Orangery later  in the evening. Th. emperor,- prince  Chun, and a dozen members of the expiatory mission took tea on an island  in the river Spree. The emperor had'  evidently arranged the entire ceremony  with a view of impressing prince Chun  with the feeling that the ceremony  meant expiation for a foul crime, and  that only through expiation had prince  Chun acquired the right to be treated  with, princely honor.  Not until after the 'ceremony did the  atmosphere change. Then the tropps{  outside having saluted, the band, heading the Hussars, escorted prince1 Chun  back to the Orangery. The imperial  envoy- seemed deeply impressed with  the solemnity of the occasion, and when  summoned to the throne room he showed visible embarrassment. He bowed  repeatedly while approaching the throne  and his voice was agitated while he  was reading the imperial address.  The-following is the text of the letter presented by prince Chun to - emperor William:'-"' ' --    ' '  "The "Great Emperor of the Chinese,-  to His Majesty the Great German Em-'  peror���Greeting: Ever since the empires have been mutually represented  by permanent legations we have stood  uninterrupted in friendly relationship  with one another, especially since the  visit of prince Henry, whom I had the  privilege of receiving frequently and  treating with on ..intimate terms. Un-.  fortunately, on the fifth month of last  year, the Boxers rebelliously penetrated  into Pekin arid the soldiers joinedthem;  The resultwas the -murder of your  majesty's minister, baron von Ketteler,  a man who, as long as he occupied his  position in Pekiri, paid careful ' attention to the interests of our countries,  and to whom" we are bound to pay our  special acknowledgements. We regret  most deeply that baron von Ketteler  met so terrible an end. The fact that  we were not in a position to take due  protective measures is painful to_ oiir*^  ~sense~of responsihilityT-ir~is"~this feeling of responsibility whicli prompted  us to erect a monument on the spot as  a sign that the crime should not remain  unexpiated. Further, we have sent to  Germany, with this letter, the imperial  prince Tsun Tsai Song, heading a special mission. Prince Chun, our own  brother, will assure your majesty how  deeply the events of the past year have  grieved us, and how deeply feelings of  shame animate us. Your majesty sent  your troops from a far distance, put  down the Boxer rebellion, and restored  peace, for the welfare of our nation.  Wo have, therefore, commanded prince  Chun to express personally to your majesty our thanks for your efforts in  promoting peace. We cherish the hope  that your majesty's indignation will be  replaced by the old friendship. That  the relations between our empires will  be even more extensive and of a more  intimate and bencficient character than  hitherto, is our firm assurance.."  Prince Chun in delivering the letter  said: "I am in a position to assure your  majesty that the emperor, my most  gracious master, stood aloof from these  complications which brought misfortune upon China, and loss and care  upon Germany. Nevertheless, in accordance with the customs of thousands of  years, the emperor or China has taken  the blame on his own sacred person.  I have.therefore, the task of expressing  to your majesty the most cordial feelings of the emperor, my illustrious master, toward your imperial majesty and  the whole of the imperial family. 1 hope  (he passing cloud will only intensify  the succeeding sunshine and mutual  friendship of the two great empires,  when they understand the value of each  other better."  Emperor AVilliam in reply said: "It  is not a joyous or festive occasion, nor  the fulfillment of a simple act of courtesy, which brings your imperial highness to me, but a deeply melancholy  and very serious event. My minister to  the court of the emperor of China has  boon slain in the capital of China by  the murderous weapons of Chinese soldiers, acting under superior command,  an unheard of crime, which is branded  as infamous by international law. and  the usages of all nations. From the  mo'ith of your imperial highness I have  just received an expression of the deep  regret of the emperor oi China. I readily  believe your imperial brother stood  aloof from this crime'and the subsequent acts of violence against the inviolable legations and peaceful foreigners. All the greater the guilt resting on  his advisers and government. The latter must not delude themselves with  the belief that they are able to attain  atonement and; pardon for their guilt  by this expiatory mission alone. They  will be judged by their future conduct,  in accordance with the laws of nations.  If the emperor of China conducts his  government of his great empire henceforth strictly in the spirit of these prescriptions, then will his hopes be fulfilled and the result of the complications  of the past year will be overcome, and  between Germany and China, as formerly, peaceful and friendly relations will  again prevail. In the sincere wish that  this may be so, I bid your imperial highness a welcome."  THE NEWS OF THE WORLD  Canada.

Eholt is a station on the Columbia &  Western railway, where a branch line  runs to Phoenix. At a quarter to 10  o'clock when several men who had just  finished a card game had gone into the  bar for a drink, three masked men entered the bar. from the street and ordered them to throw up their hands.. .'  Two railway men were in the dining- -  .room having supper and they -were  brought into the bar and told to line  up with the ethers, eight in all. At first,  it was thought the proceedings were a  joke, but they were soon convinced 'that  the visitors mean, business, and serious  business, too. One man who did not  throw up his hands got a blow on the  side of-the head from a masked man's  gun, which quickly made him do as he  was told. Kaiser was ordered to open  his safe, which stood in the bar, and  this was rilled, currency and jewelry being taken and cheques and documents-  lelt on the floor. The cash register was  _emptied and the pockets of the men in  line gone through. .   .  Altogether about $100 in cash, three.-* "  goid' watches,  a  diamond   breastpin,  a   ���-  valuable diamond ring, and other trin- "  kets were taken._ The robbers then took-    '  four Lotties ot cnampagne, two of whis-.  ky, and two ot beer, and warning their  victims   that   anyone   showing   himself  outside whilst they were within range  would be fired at, left the bar.   - "'  An engineer who was under orders to  leave for another part  of tne 'railway   .  company's system  is reported  to have  had a lucky escape.   It is stated that h_  was on his way to the hotel,'but stopped  to light his cigar, and had to strike several matches before he could get a light.'  He noticed a man walking up and down  the sidewalk in front of the hotel, and  then three others came out, and tho four  hurried away.   When he entered the har*<  just   afterwards   he   learned   the   story  of the robbery.   lie was wearing a valu- *  able golil watch and had about ��100 in  currency   in   his    pocket,   having   just^  closed up his affairs in the town in read- '  i-*.**.���--��� to leave on tlie next day's train.  By the time the news reached chief  constable McMynn at Greenwood all telephone and tclegiaph offices in the district other than Eholt and Greenwood  were closed for the night, so no speedy  communication with other stations was--  ���-ossiblc. However, he sent out some  men along likely roads, but they had a  fruitless journey, for up to 0 o'clock this  evening no clue to the robbers or the  direction they took had been obtained.  There are several reds and trails over  which men acquainted with this country  could get to the international boundary  I'.ive-and-tlience "*outlnvards across tho  Colville reservation, so the chances of  the arrest of the robbeis and the recovery of their plunder aro small. Mr. and  Mrs. Kaiser are the heaviest losers, for  besides the money, they each lost a gold  wateh and some diamond jewelry.  Arrested on a Seco_.d Charge.  REVELSTOKE, September 4.���[Special to The Tribune.]���Fail .tiler was  brought up last night on a second charge  of embezzling $SJ9 of government funds.  The case was remanded and he was admitted to bail. The deputy attorney-general is on delayed No. 2 to conduct the  case for the government nt the preliminary hearing tomorrow. G. S. McCartcr  will appear for Fauquier. No. 2, due at  4:15 this morning, is delayed by the fire  in the tunnel near North  Bend.  New Developments Expected.  NORTHPORT, Washington, September 4.���[Special to The Tribune.]���The  situation here is quiet, hut more developments may be expected, including  some friction between the state and  national authorities. Nearly ali the men  who arrived from Joplin, Missouri, have  left the smelter, refusing to work under  existing conditions.  Will Appeal to Parliament.  SWANSEA, Wales, September 4.���The  Trades Union Congress today continued  to debate the Taff-Yale decision, the  president cautioning the delegates to be  careful of the language used in reference  to the house of lords. Voting on the  recommendations of the parliamentary  committee, the congress was unanimous  in declaring that an appeal should bo  made to parliament to alter the law, and  that an authoritative decision should be  sought as to whether peaceful picketing  was illegal.

Joseph Martin plays the game of politics much better than he is credited with  playing the game of poker; but his gains  at both games are about the same.  The Vancouver World wants ��� Smith  Curtis of Rossland to lead the new opposition. Since editor McLagan crossed  the dark river the World has not been  "noxt" to any one worth being next to  in politics.  Honorable John Cunningham Brown,  minister of education, does not sound  as big to many people as did J. C.  Brown, M.P.P.; but there is $4000 more  a year in the salary and J. C. B. is a  r-oor man.  . For concerns that are working  smoothly and with little trouble because  of a scarcity of labor, the Le Roi mine  and smelter seem .to have a heap of  "trouble in the. police courts of two  Nations.     '  What has become of the city's site  for a power station on Kootenay river?  Is that river and all the land along it  set apart for .the sole use of the West  Kootenay Power & Light Company .of  Rossland? Stand up, Mr. Weils, and  tell us! '   Somo of the Coast members of the  legislature, are quite indignant because  premier Dunsmuir has taken Joseph  Martin into his confidence. Well, who  has a better right to be taken into the  premier's confidence? Didn't .Joseph  make James Dunsmuir premier of British Columbia? One good turn deserves  __.otho_.  It has been claimed that the mineral  tax works a hardship on poor men, who  are struggling to develop their properties. . The "Assessment Act, 1900," sec-,  tion'5, reads: All ore producing mines  not yielding and realizing on ore a  market value of $5000 in any one year  shall be entitled to a refund of one-half  of the tax. Or in othor .words, if a mine  yields less than five thousand dollars  worth of ore in a-year, the rate of taxation is one per cent. A case in point:  According to the Lardeau Eagle, four  men have a lease on the Triune mino,  in Lardeau district. They made a 20-  ton shipment of ore of the gross value  of ?5157.16. After deducting a freight  and treatment charge of ?386.G7, they  _had_$_.7-7-0,  a further deduction of $25 a ton for  hauling the ore from the mine to the  steamboat landing on the East Arm of  Arrow lake. This would leave them $4270  on which the tax of 1 per cent would  be paid." Surely a tax of $42.70 is not  such a burden as to be classed' as unbearable.

Why Canada Doesn't Grow.  A correspondent of the Buffalo Times  thinks  he  can  explain  the  reason  for  Canada's slow growth in population. The  reason why Canada does not grow faster  is, in my firm opinion, this:- "The lack  of oppcrtiiility for young men.   I myself  came from Canada, and aril now a citizen  of the United States.   I was born in the  province of Ontario, which is the garden  spot of Canada, and one whicli  ought  to show  development if any province  dees.   But it exhibits only a trifling increase.   The reason is very plain:    The  Canadians, like the English, believe that  a man is good for nothing until he is  advanced in years.   He is not supposed  to be competent to fill any position of  importance until he is 45 or 50 years old.  The result is that thousands of Canadians who are well educated and capable  enough to command good salaries are  struggling.along during; the best years  of their lives on salaries of $S to. ?12  per week and are thankful to get even  that much.    There wore six boys who  graduated with me from a certain Canadian high school.   Of the seven, six arc  now in the United States enjoying incomes from $2000 to ?5000 a year, while  the seventh, who has just as good natu-  ���    ral abilities, is receiving about $12 per  week in Canada.    This is only ono instance.    Buffalo alone has a population  of 25,000 Canadians, and there are 5,000,-  000 of them in the United States.   That  is the reason that Canada doesn't grow."  The Stratford (Ontario) Beacon dissents  from the above view.   It"says that young  men are appreciated in both Canada and  Great Britain.   It cites as instances that  Pitt, the younger, was prime minister  of England at 24 (the constitution of the  United  States debars a man from  tho  presidency until he is 35 years old). Sir  Wilfrid Laurier was a minister of the  crown at 36,  and sir  Charles  Hibbert  Tupper at 33. ��� In the business and professional circles  young men  of ability  have always occupied high positions in  Canada.    But the trouble is that under  our excellent school system and in our  frugal,- moral homes, we have been turning our  larger  numbers  of  intelligent  and well-conditioned young men that a  -country' of our size can find remunerative employment for, and they have been  finding tlieir way to the larger market  for such ih the States. This may sound  boastful, and even egotistical, but it i_  gospel truth all the same.  The prominent positions held by young Canadians  in  the Statos  attest they possess   the  worth  needed  for the jobs.  If,  as  tho  Hamilton Herald points out, the United  States were not so near and easy of access, a large proportion of the surplus ;;  would be obliged to go west and north  and develop the  waste��places  of  our  countr*-*.   But mechanics and clerks and  laborers and professional men naturally  desire  to  continue  doing  the  kind   of  work that they have learned to do, and  so when they can't make a living at  that kind of work in Canada, they go  where they may get the kind of work  -thoy=want.=Thero=areimore��cliances-hi=  the States, not only because of the vast  population there, -but because of  much  greater  diversity  in   industries   there  than in Canada. ..With the development  of oiir varied natural resources, Canadian  industries  will  become  more  diverse as well as greater in number and  extent, and  the opportunities  for our  young   men   will   correspondingly   in-  cre-ise.

The dispatch is as follows:    De-  _:*.i__   have  now   been  received-of  the  fighting    in     which     general     Walter  Kitchener's and general Campbell's columnsyweix;  engaged when  their forces  were  intercepted - by a party, of Boers  i*.*-:'-er Beii Viljoen in,the Selous river  deille.   This defile, which extends for a  distance of 3G miles in a northwesterly  direction, is a most-uninviting place as  there   aro   high   rugged   mountains   on  eithe-.' side, and the defile is so narrow  in some places that"a shot fired from  mountain to mountain would have, effect.    The slopes of the mountains are  mostly denuded of trees, but stretching  from a farm at Laatste Drift, just be-  -'ond the end of the defile, there are  miles cf forest.    It was in a part of  this forest that there were concealed a  number of the enemy,, who opened  a  heavy fire on the transport train as it  was going along the roads below.._ Our  artillery-succeeded in driving the enemy  out of the bush over the mountain in  all direction.    While our guns were in  operation, the cavalry and the irregulars were working round the mountain  to intercept the retreating Boers.   They  did their work well,  and succeeded  in  capturing a laager and one "pom-pom"  intact,  another   pom-pom   being  blown  up by tho Boers.   These pom-poms had  been taken from the, Victorian contingent two months before.   Wo also captured 37 prisoners and a large number  of cattle.   Later, when scouring the bush  a lr.i'Ke number ot' dead and wounded  were found, and brought into camp.   It  ia   stated   that  the   two  columns  were  daily in contact with  the remnants of  Viljcen's men.   In the process of scour-  in*: the country our scouts  discovered  numerous families hidden away in the  valleys.   .These valleys were invariably  full of thick bush and shrub.   The Boers  had taken the iron roofs off the houses  in "the  vicinity  and   carted   them   into  these recesses, thus making shelters for  themselves  and  their  families.    These  shelters are so cuningly devised and covered with green foliage that it is a difficult   matter, to   discover   their   whereabouts.  With the two columns are a number  of surrendered burghers who have taken  the oath of allegiance. These mon are  mounted, and act as scouts. As they arc  privileged to roam about at will with little'or no restraint, an o:*:*ortunity of  **i-ovin_* their fitness is daily afforded  them, and the.authorities state that they  are doing excellent work.

Canada has immense natural resources  .which must tempt American capital as  British   and   foreign   capital   has   been  tempted  to  exploit our  own  resources  during half a century.    That is one of  the surest guarantees of future indus-  inaltrial progress in the Dominion.   But  there is another side to the question of  progress, and it is only fair to say that  in all the factors of law and order, especially in the administration of criminal  justice, and in the cherishing of principles and ideals that protect the home,  th_ Dominion might read us a lesson in  somo important respects."  to  to  m  9\  to  m  Are the only kind to be found in our stock.

NEW YORK, September 4.���A dispatch to the Tribune from.London says:  Lord Milner has not been idle since, his  return to South Africa. One of his first  public acts on resuming his duties has  been to offer some assurances in reply  to the representations made on behalf  of tho outlander refugees. The high  commissioner declares that there is no  object for which he will work more  strenuously than that of bringing the  people back to the Transvaal as quickly as possible.  Military men f.ankly express that  they do not understand what is happening in South Africa. They are confused and.bewildered when they stick  pins in -their maps and observe the extent and magnitude of the operations of  the raiders. -   ��� ��� ���:  An experienced official says that he  suspects that Mr. Kruger .was not far  from the truth when he asserted that  12,000 Cape rebels had revolted. This is  a pessimistic confession, but it illustrates the impression prevailing in official circles. ������_ ' :"  '.   -"���'���'������ ������ ���  LONDON, September 4.���A'dispatch  from Middleburg* ot the Times says the  approach of mid-September ��� has had the^  effect of drawing a sharp line between"  the two parties among the Cape Colony  Dutch. A few of them have joined the  fighting burghers in consequence of the  exasperation of lord Kitchener's latest  proclamation, but others have thrown  in their lot with the British. Last week  the British authorities received two offers on the part of the Dutch inhabitants of Cape Colony to'raise special  corps to hunt for Boer rebels, Scheeper's  recent dash into the northwest: corner  of Cape Colony is regarded as unimportant. His 300.followers are mostly boys,  and half his horses are in poor condition.  Train Held Up in Texas  TEXARKANA, Texas, September. 4.���  The Cotton Belt train, leaving Texarka-  na at 9:25 p. m., in charge of conductor  Armstrong and engineer Henderson, was  held up and robbed last night near Ey-  lau, four miles south of Texarkana. The  train was flagged by one of the robbers,  who forced the fireman- to go back and  cut off the mail and express car, and returning forced the engineer to give up  the management of his engine. One of  the robbers ran the engine, mail, and  express cars about a mile- away and  forced the express messenger to open  his car. The robbers then blew open the  safe with dynamite, securing, it is said,  ���a very large amount of booty. The ex-  .act amount is. withheld,.by. the railroad  and the express people, 'but it is known  that a very large shipment was made  on this train.' The robbers next cut off  the engine from; the mail and express  cars, and forcing engineer. Henderson  to get off, they took^he'engine in charge  of.the robber engineer (and went south  at full "speed. At 1:40 o'clock this morning the engine had nbt'.been found. No  passengers were molested,, though they  were badly frightened".,'. .  The First Stake Driyen.  ST.

FALMOUTH, England, September 4.���  The Wilson line steamer Buffalo, which  passed the Lizard last night and signalled that she had broken her shaft,  arrived here today. The captain reported that a New York passenger, a  man named Joy, had committed suicide  by taking poison during the voyage.  ln a letter to the captain, he requested  that his remains be buried at sea, which  was done.

The Kingston (Ontario) Whig has  stated that Kingston w-as given a bad  deal in the recent census and had evidence to sustain the complaint. In one  family of three houses in this city nine  persons were not enumerated, and they  were not recorded elsewhere. The whole  country has had a bad deal. The enumerators were ��� bound down by instruc-  tions so that they passed over names  which every argument of common sense  would, dictate the recording of. They  acted like machines, not like men with  intellects or regard for national interests. Some of these omitted were lifelong residents of the city and had real  estate property here, but were boarding  at the time of the census.- Because they  were boarders enumerators refused to  record them. If one family can show  such lapses, what must the aggregate  be, In these columns the importance  of accurate work in the enumeration  was pressed upon the powers that' be,  but Kingston lacks representatives firm  and devoted in defending her interests  in certain auarters.
