 ESTABLISHED  1892  SATURDAY  MORNING,   SEPTEMBER  7,   1901  DAILY EDITION  ONLY FORTY MEN AT WORK  IN  ALL  THE LE ��01 MINES AT  ROSSLAND.  Bernard   McDonald  Reported   to   Be  Disgusted, and Willing to Throw-  Up His Job as Manager.  ROSSLAND, September 6.���[Special to  The Tribune.]���The Stevenson case  against Al Geiser was concluded today  f_; before the police magistrate and judgment was reserved. A second case, in  which Geiser is charged with hiring one  J. Harvey Andrew at Baker City, Oregon, to work'as a mucker in the Le Roi'  ..mines, was commenced this afternoon  and will probably be concluded tomorrow. During the proceedings Geiser  swore that he had forty men at work  here on his two contracts with the Le  Rci and Le Roi No. 2 companies. Today Cliff Bowen, Geiser's foreman,  stated under oath that of the men employed only three were miners, and one  of these was. engaged yesterday. This  evidence from the contractor and his  foreman is .a complete answer to the  stories in the Rossland Miner about the  number of .miners returning to work.  Officers of.the Miners' Union stated this  evening that hone of the old miners  had returned to work, nor would they  work for Geiser unless the strike was  settled.  The bridge crew at Northport were  asked this morning to come here and  unload the timber cars at .the Le Roi  mines. Tho men refused and gave up  their jobs.  The World this evening publishes  long, extracts from leading English papers showing up Whitaker Wright's.last  circular to Le Roi shareholders. The circular includes letters and cables from  Bernard McDonald and others '��� in Rossland to Wright on the labor question,  amply justifying the stand taken by the  Miners' - Union,' namely, that McDonald  deliberately planned to destroy the  "Smeltermen's Union at Northport and  Miners' Union here.  , ��� It< was stated on good authority this  afternoon that McDonald has expressed  his "disgust at the way matters' have  turned out here and in London.-. He is.  said to desire to drop the. management  of both the-mines and the. smelter.  ROSSLAND, September 6.���[Associated Press.]���The trial of the charges  against ' Albert Geiser, for importing  miners, contrary to the alien labor law  was continued today. The case in which  Neil'Stevenson is informant was finished,   and: decision, reserved   for   one  ���week.' 'In-' the   case   now: -proceeding,-  James   Andrew   is   the  informant.. The  ��� grist of tlie evidence submitted is that"  Iboth  men  declare on oath . they  were"  Jiired to come to Rossland to work.  Opposed to this is the sworn statements  of Mr. Geiser and his superintendent,  Clifford Bbwen, that the men were hired  for NSrthjPOj't contracts which Mr.- Geiser is performing and that Rossland was  never mentioned in any shape orforni  to any of the men engaged. It was shown  In evidence that both men left Mr. Geiser's employ the day they reached North-'  port; and spent the balance of their  stay with the striking smeltermen.  defections, but I hope they will be few,  and I look forward at the time of tho  opening of-the noxt session.to see a  larger majority than ever for the premier."  McBrido and Wells passed through  here today, tho former to Westminster  and Wells to inspect the Chilliwack  dykes. Local politicians, supporters of  McBride, say they will not risk McBride  running against Brown at Westminster  on the 20th. Tom Briggs, an old timer,  and a Liberal, is mentioned as the man  who will oppose Brown.  Private meetings of tho Conservatives  and Liberals were hold this morning. At  both it was decided to work against the C  Dunsmuir-Martin combination. There is  no intention to draw party lines.

VANCOUVER, September 6��� [Special  to The Tribune.]��� Dr' I. M. Maclean,  medical health officer of the city, died  last night from the effects of a stomach  operation.. Ho was '42 . years old, and a  very clever physician, having been a  civic cmpolyeo for five years.  The funeral of tho late E. J. Duchesnay, former assistant general superintendent of.the Canadian Pacific, which  took place today was one of the largest"  ever seen in-the city. Friends of the deceased were, present��from all over the  province.  R. Catnoch, a logger, was killed yesterday at Shoal1 Bay,by a log rolling over  him.    :.'...  Work has been commenced/according  to advices by steamer Nell, arriving this  rnbrning from Fort Simpson, on the Pacific and Omineea railway from Kitimat  to Hazelton. The contract has been let  for the grading. It is said to be a part  of. the McKenzie-Mahm scheme, for a  transcontinental line. '���.,  An offer of $350,000 has been made by  an! English syndicate for a part of the  Goldsmith property on Howe Sound,  next the Britannia. The sale of the property will depend on J. D..Kendall, who  has just completed an examination of it.  Discusses Joe Martin.  VANCOUVER, September C.���[Special  to The Tribune.]���The burden of the  statement obtained from Mr. Wells this  morning is that he is in no fear at all  of Mr. Martin materially affecting the  stability of the Dunsmuir cabinet. "1  think that too much attention is paid  to Mr. Martin in connection with this  'business," said Mr. Wells. "Mr. Mc-  .Brj/je considered that he ought to resign and has done so, while others of  ,us iu the cabinet do not think the cir-  I( (Cumstanees warranted anything of this  ( -sort.   I am not criticising Mr. McBride's  conduct in any way, for he was probably  in a different position from others of  us,  having been   mixed  up   with   Mr.  Browa over in Westminster for a long  .time.   It was probably hjs relations with  Mr. Browii aver there that caused him  to resign, but I-do not see any cause  for any one else getting very sore oyer  that. .1 think that the government will  now be stronger with the  number of  men who will join the party with Mr.  Martin, unless there are. more defections  from the party, and it is hoped that  I there is no reason for being put about  I in this connection.   Mr, Martin did not  have a pleasant position at the head of  the opposition.   Such being the case he  considered it wiser to join the party of  the premier, then it is nouoavs o'usiness  but his own.   The only result that I can  , see that the government will gain the  |.support  and strength of  Martin men,  ���wio will go with him.   There is not any  -a'sa*. i?n to' kick.   All that has happened  vCQijiM have occurred without Mr. Mar-  .tin hsu-Off any sinister motive in view.  What _ fliean is that because Mr. Margin haj^Pte***5 to have gone into the ranks  of the gpye/nment,  it does not mean  ���.-that he LQV/ts .any great amount of ice,  \sor that ju.e Is running the government.  ���That js entirely erroneous.   Mr. Duns-  xnuir's action is entirely endorsed, and  _he is -working in harmony with his cab-  Iinet, as far as-1 know.    Some people  ���take Mr.. Martin too seriously, you know.  :JNow, as I said ^before, there may be some  James Breen to Own a Hotel.  ANACONDA, Montana, September 6.'���'���  James Breen, acting through Con .Hayes  =of=this^cityr=wlio=-will=b^his=pWt_ilr7  has purchased the famous Gregson  Springs property, ten miles from Anaconda. Last July the hotel and baths  there were burned. It is the intention  of the new owners to construct a splendid new hotel with accommodations for  150 guests. A huge plunge and a sanitarium, to be in charge of a noted specialist in rheumatics and kindred diseases,  will be established.

Reid Seriously Injured.  GLACE  BAY,  N.   S.,   September  0.���  Lawrence  Shannahan   end  D.   L.   Reid  were seriously injured by an' explosion  of dynamite yesterday.  BUFFALO, September 6.���-President  McKinley was shot and seriously wounded by a well-dressed assassin while holding a reception in the Temple of Music  at the Pan-American grounds, a few  minutes after 4 o'clock this afternoon.  One shot took effect in the left breast,  the other in the abdomen. The first is  not of a serious nature, and the bullet  ���has been extracted. The latter pierced  the abdominal wall, and has not been  located. As the man approached the  president, it is said, he had the revolver  covered with a handkerchief, and as  he reached out his hand to shake the  president's hand he fired.  The multitude, only. partially aware  that something serious had happened,  paused in surprise while necks were  craned and all eyes turned as one to trie  rostrum where a' great tragedy was being enacted. Then came a commotion.  Three men threw themselves forward as  with one impulse and sprang toward  the would-be assassin. Two of them  were United;. States secret service men,  who were on the lookout and whose duty  it was to guard against just such a  calamity as had befallen the president.  The third was a bystander, a negro, who  had only the moment previously grasped  the hand of the president. In a twinkling the assassin : was borne to ; the  ground, his weapon was wrested from  his grasp, and strong arms pinioned  him down. Then the multitude which  thronged the edifice began to'come to  a. realizing sense of the awfulnessyof  the scene of which they had been unwilling witnesses. A murmui" arose,  spread and swelled to a hum of contusion; then grew to a babel of sounds,  and later to a pandemonium of noises.  The crowd, which only a moment before  had stood mute and motionless1 as in bewildered ignorance of the enormity pi  the'thing, now- with a single impulse  surged forward, while hundreds outside  struggled blindly toward the stage of the  horrid drama, while a hoarse cry went  up from a thousand throats, and a thousand men charged forward to lay hands  upon thevperpetrator of the crime: in  a- moment the confusion. was terrible.  The crowd, surged forward regardless of  consequences. Men shouted and fought,  women fainted, and children screamed.  Many.fled from the edifice in fear of a  stampede, while hundreds outside struggled blindly forward in an effort to  penetrate the crowded building and solve  the mystery of the excitement and  panic, which every moment grew and  swelled within the congested interior  bf the edifice. .  Inside' on the slightly raised dias was-  enacted within a few moments a tragedy  so dramatic in character, so thrilling in  its intensity, that few who looked on  will-ever he able to give a clear account  of y what really did transpire. Even  those who attended the president came  out with . blanched faces, trembling-  limbs, and beating hearts, while their  brains throbbed with a tumult of conflicting emotions, which could not be  ^larifi��d"inW'a=lucid"narratiye-'of=events=  as they really transpired.  Of the multitude which witnessed or  took part in,the scene of turmoil and  turbulence, there was but one mind  which seemed to retain its equilibrium,  one hand remained steady, one .j--  which gazed with unflinching calmness,  and one voice which retained its even  tenor and faltered not at the most critical juncture. They were the mind and  hand and eye and voice of president  McKinley.^/After'the first shock of the  assassin's shot, he retreated a step. Then  as the detectives leaped upon his assassin he walked slowly to a chair and  seated himself, at the same time removing his hat and bowing his head in  his hands. In an instant secretary Cor-  telyou and president Milburn wero at  his side. His waistcoat was hurriedly  opened, the president meanwhile admonishing those about him to be calm  and telling them not to be alarmed. "But  you are wounded," cried his secretary,  "let me examine." "No, I think not,"  answered the president. "I am not  badly hurt, I assure you." Nevertheless  his garments Were hastily loosened and  when a trickling stream of crimson  was seen to wind its way down his  breast, spreading its tell-tale stain over  his white linen, their worst fears were  confirmed, /  A force rff exposition guards were soon  on thg scene and an effort was made to  clear the building, By this time the  crush was terrific. Spectators crowded  down the stairways from the galleries,  the crowd on the floor surged forward  towards fhe rostrum, *,vhile, despite the  strenuous efforts pf police and guards,  the t.hrpng without struggled madly to  pbtaih admission,  Immediately the president was cared  for at the exposition grounds, director  general W, I. Buchanan started for the  Milburn residence to forestall any information that might reach there by  telephone or otherwise. Luckily he was  first to arrive with the information. The  Niagara Falls trip had tired Mrs. McKinley, and on returning to the Mil-  burn residence she took leave of her  nieces, the Misses Barber, and the president's niece, Miss Duncan, as well as  their hostess, .Mrs. Milburn, and went  to her room to rest. Mr. Buchanan broke  the news as gently as possible to the  nieces and consulted with them and Mrs.  Milburn as to the best course to pursue in breaking the news to Mrs. McKinley. It was finally decided that on  her awakening, or shortly thereafter,  Mr. Buchanan should break the news  to her, if in the meantime her physician,  Dr. Rixey, had not arrived.  Mrs. McKinley awoke from her sleep,  at about 5:30 o'clock. She was feeling  splendidly, she said,'and at'once took  up her crocheting, which is one cf her  favorite diversions. Immediately on Mr.  Buchanan's arrival at the Milburn house,  he had telephonic communication cut  off, and he decided on. this as the wisest  course to pursue, lest Mrs. McKinley,  hearing the continual ringing of the bell,  might inquire what it. meant.  While the light of day continued Mrs.  McKinley. continued her crocheting,  keeping to. her room. When at became  dark she began to feel anxious concerning the president. "I wonder why he  does not come?" she asked of her nieces.  There: was no clock in Mrs. McKinley's  room, and when it was 7 o'clock she had  no idea it was so late, and then it was  she began to feel anxious concerning her  husband, for it was-time for him to return to' the Milburn home.    ~  At 7 o'clock Dr. Rixey arrived at the  Milburn residence. He had been driven  hurriedly down Delaware avenue in an  open carriage. As he came up, Mr.  Buchanan was out on the lawn conversing with a reporter*/' "Do you know,"  said Mr. Buchanan, "I had a sort of premonition ofythis. Since early morning  I had been extremely nervous and feared  that something would go wrong. Our  trip -to the Falls was uneventful, ���but  ���what an awful sad ending to our day."y  At 7:20 o'clock Dr. Rixey came out  of the house acQomi>anied ��� by Webb  Hayes, a son of former president Hayes,  who is a friend of president McKinley's.  They entered a carriage and returned^ to  the Exposition hospital. After Dr. Rixey  had gone,. Mr. Buchanan said* that the  doctor, had broken the news in a most  gentle manner to Mrs. .'McKinley. He  said'she stood it bravely. though much'  affected. If it was'-'possible to bring  him to her she wanted it done.' .Df.  Rixey assured her that the president  could be brought with safety from .the  Exposition grounds, and when' he left  Mr. Milburn's it was to complete all  arrangments for the removal cf the  president. ��� A big force of- patrolmen  was assigned to the Milburn residence.  At 7:30 secretary Wilson and Mrs. Wilson called and were admitted to the Mil-  burn'residence.  BUFFALO, September 7���The president's physicians, issued the following  bulletin at 1 o'clock this morning: "The  president is free from pain and resting  well.   Temperature 100.4; pulse 80."  One other bulletin was issued during  the earlier part of the night. At 10:35  the president's temperature was 100.4,  pulse 124, respiration 24. The bulletins  were signed by Drs. P. M. Rixey, M.  Mann, R. Parke, H. Mynter, and Eugene  Watson, and countersigned by George  B. Cortelyou, the president's private sec-  TPtnvv.       '  .  dition, and remarked defiantly to the  crowd about him, "That's good. He  ought to have been shot long ago." An  old man, wearing a Grand Army but-  otn, leaped out of the crowd and struck  the young man. He fell to the ground  like a log and the aged veteran pounced ���'  upon him. He beat the young Anarchist  unmercifully, while several hundred  men and women shouted approval. When  he arose, the young man started away.  Immediately the crowd took up the cry  of "Lynch him!" and started in pursuit. The man ran across the Eleventh  street bridge and into the country with  a rapidly diminishing crowd in pursuit.  He finally escaped. In the meantime the  old;veteran had slipped away.     y  SALT LAKE, September 6.���When  informed of the attempted assassination  of president McKinley, Lorenzo Snow,  president of the Mormon church, said:  "I think it is the most serious and lamentable thing that has occurred since  the- massacre of president Abraham Lincoln. It is, awful, and especially so considering the present state of affairs in  this and other countries."  LONDON, September 6.���The news of  the attempt on the life bf president McKinley spread slowly in London. With  the confirmation and general dissemination of the news arose a far-reaching  feeling of sorrow and indignation; which  wherever a crowd were gathered gained  almost the proportions of a panic, accompanied by feverish anxiety for further details. Thousands of Americans  now in London were mostly at the theatres when the news arrived, and returning-to their hotels; found anxious groups  of Englishmen and Americans discussing what, without, distinction of -.-race,  is regarded as a national calamity. London's telephones, usually silenced at  night, tingled with impatient inquiries  addressed to newspapers and-American  correspondents in hopes of securing a  denial'of thei report. The announcement  of the attempted assassination was received to late for extra editions of the  evening papers to announce the news  tb the mass of tlie English-people, and  they. will, not learn' until they- take up~  their "morning papers of the attempt to  l-ill" the "president.. A representative of  the Associated Press wired the intelligence to J. W. McKay, Thomas P. Ochiltree, C. L. Plummen, W. G. Gates, and  many.others, all of whom desired to express their unexpressible indignation at  the cowardly act, and express sympathy'  with president McKinley and hopes for  his recovery.  ble disorder and the discussion terminated without any conclusion beiug  reached. Robert W. Parks, a member of  parliament and a prominent contractor  and vicerpresident of the Liberal Imperial council, deprecated the usefulness  of clerical manifestos. He believed that  somo were necessary, but the growing  tendency towards unnecessary strife  was due greatly to the influence of corrupt, unlicensed journalism. Rev. E. E.  Hoss of Nashville, Tennessee, said it  would be impertinence for the conference to tell Great Britain what to do  in South Africa.  TRUE BLUE IS A BONANZA  HAS A PAYSTREAK THAT GOES  23 PER CENT COPPER.  CANADIAN   NEWS   SIFTED  The Assassin's Name.  BUFFALO, September 6.���The man  who attempted to assassinate president  McKinley gave his name as Fred Nie-  man, and said he belonged in Detroit,  Michigan. When arrested he was asked why ho shot the president and replied: "I am an Anarchist and have  done my duty." Later he denied to a police ofllcer that he was an Anarchist.  BUFFALO, September 6.���The police  have just learned that the real name of  tho would-be assassin is Leon Czolgosz.  He was born in Detroit, and came here  from Cleveland.  DETROIT, Michigan, September C���  Late tonight a newspaper reporter discovered that a man named Alfred Nie-  man had boarded at 17S Russell street  up to two weeks ago, when he left for  Buffalo. The description of Fred Nie-  man was read to his former landlady  and she said it fitted him, except that  Alfred's hair was not dark but medium  brown, wavy, and thick. He wore it  brushed back off his forehead. He also  has very white, even teeth. Alfred Nie-  mau was a wagonmakcr.  TACOMA, Washington, September 6.  R. C. Hunt, employed by the Northern  Pacific as a special agent, with headquarters in Tacoma, knows the would-  be assassin of president McKinley quite  well. As soon as he heard, the news  and the name of the man under arrest,  Mr. Hunt said: "I know Fred Nieman,  and if I am not mistaken he carries  some scars inflicted by me. Nieman  formerly lived in Detroit, but his home  is now in Toledo. Five or six years  ago, when in Detroit, Nieman, who was  a pronounced Anarchist, gathered a  crowd in the union depot by flourishing  a revolver and uttering pronounced anarchistic sentiments. I told him he must  stop that kind of business, and started  to lead him away. He resisted me, and  I pounded him good over the head. I  think he has some of the scars yet."  Outside Comment.

He said: "While  traveling in February and March between Abiline, Texas, and El Paso, An-  =tonio^MaggiOiJ=cornet=-player-=for=th*r  conipany, told me .that he belonged to  Maleste's Anarchistic Circle, with headquarters in Rome, Italy. He told me  that president McKinley and emperor  William were doomed to assassination,  and that men had already been selected  to kill them. 'The time is not set for  tho assassination of emperor William,'  he said; 'but president McKinley will be  killed before Oetober 1st.' 'Why?' I  asked. 'Because,' he said, 'he sent soldiers to the Philippines and king Humbert sent soldiers to kill tho natives of  Africa. All who seek to oppress must  die.' He also told mo that Maleste's Circle had assassins all over the world. He  made threats against manager Andrews  of the opera company and was discharged at Silver City, New Mexico,  where he was immediately engaged to  play in a saloon. Magglo also told me  that he expected some day to be called  upon to kill a tyrant, and that when he  was it would be tho proudest moment  of his life."

THE LOCAL SMELTERS ARE  Owners   Will Ship  Enough  Ore Tbis  Winter to Return Them Every    ,  Dollar They Invested.  Giving- Good Satisfaction.  W. R. Will of New Denver is in Nelson for a few days. As Mr. Will has been  _a_resident-of=N_cfeoruan(LSlocan=mining:  Stormy Methodist Meeting.  LONDON, September C���A stormy  meeting of the Methodist conference resulted this morning from the reading by  Smith of Pittsburg, of a paper on "The  Influence of Methodism in the Promotion  of International Peace." The five-minute rule was adopted and the pastors  made fiery speeches for and against the  war in South Africa. The campaign  came in for a lot of criticism, and eventually the chairman ruled rer'erence to  it out of order. Many Americans took  part in the discussion, but none of the  more prominent bishops spoke. The  speeches were punctuated by frequent  noisy interruptions, cheers and counter  cheers.   There was a scene of considera-  divisions, with the exception of about  a year, since 1890, he is fairly conversant  with former and present conditions. He  says that there are several producing  mines at the Slocan that are seldom  heard of, as they aro either owned by  individuals or close corporations. These  mines in the Slocan that are seldom  handsomely. Many,prospects are being  slowly developed, and some of them will  ultimately become good properties. Mr.  Will says that tho building of smelters  in the country is already beginning to  bear good results, and cites rutcs quoted  hy three smelters (Nelson, Trail, and  Grand Forks) competing for Slocan ores,  in which thoro is considerable difference, a difference that would be a fairly  good profit on low-grade ore. This competition stimulates the owners of dry-  ore mines and has a good effect on the  companies that own the big galena  mines. There is another point that Mr.  Will refers to whicli should be given  publicity, that is, that the smelter returns are very satisfactory, especially  those received from the smelter at Nelson,  J. C. Drewry arrived in Nelson yester-   <  day from the- Commonwealth .group, on  Hooker creek in the Crawford Bay-district, which he is developing.: In icorn-  mon with the other properties which he  has  in   hand  the 'Commonwealth   has   ;  the earmarks of a ...mine. The. development tunnel is now in for a "distance, of  135 feet. This tunnel is being driven for  the purpose of getting in under the'shaft  which has been sunk on- a.big showing  for a depth of 80 feet. At two different  points between this shaftand the.mouth  of the tunnel the ledge has been open-   ;  ed with surface work v'hich,resulted In   _  very nice showings. One of these' showings is but 65 feet ahead of the breast  of the -present  tunnel   so  that  it will  not be long before it will be reached,  thus    giving    consideraole    aepth.    To  reach the bottom of the 80  foot shaft  it is estimated that it will be necessary  to drive the tunnel a total distance-of  450. feet. This however is not proving  to be dead woik by any means, as. in  the distance that has been covered so  far- a new chute of ore has'.been encountered which did  not show on the surface. This.chute^continued in the' tunnel,    ,  for a distance of 42 feet, for which distance it averaged from 2 to 4 feet in  width. Assays from this ore gave uniformly   high   values   and   considerable, 7  quantities of it were taken out in development. It will take the men who have  the 'present   contract   for   driving   the  tunnel at least thirty days to complete   '  their work, but when this is completed  . t  it  is   Mr.   Drewry's   intention  to   keep    _'.  right ahead. To this end he has arranged for the erection of suitable-buildings  for'the winter's operations. He says that  the work done upon the property up to  *  date has given highly satisfactory re-   '  suits. Since passing through the ne*.v ore  ,chute tho tunnel, has been in.a comparai,.,-.  tively barren portion of the ledge, but  this was expected as it was not antici-    ,  pated that any thing would be,encoun->(,,M  tered until the tunnel'got in under; the'  fust open cut between the shaft and the  mouth of the tunnel.  Mr. Drewry reports that work is going  ahead  steadily  on  the  True vBlue  property near Kaslo. In the workingsrof  the True Blue a depth of 110 feet has      ���  now  been  attained,  and  the ledge appears to be about nine feet wide."Of this* \ '  there is a paystreak winch varies from-V .  16 to IS inches. This is made up of clean '���'/  ore;     Several     very y carefully-   taken������'������;/f  samples from this paystreak have given,  uniform  assays  of'23  per  cent .cop'pery'v '  with  small  values  in  gold.  Of the ,re-   ,.  maining portion of the ledge it is said ���,;���"  that assays have been' taken from time  to   time  giving  returns  of  7   per  cent  copper. Ore from this paystreak is now  being   sacked   and   shipments   will   bet  made from the property as soon as the  snow renders it posible to rawhide the  ore out.  Mr. Drewry says he will ship  sufficient ore from the True Blue this  wmtci-to repay-the owni-ib-alHhoy-have^-���;  paid for tho purchase of the property as  well as what they have expended; upon  its development, he being confident that  tho shipments  from   the property, this  winter will average 20 por cent of copper. Next summer it is proposed, if the  property does as well as it is now doing, to put in an aerial tramway to.the  lake, and until this is done no attempt  will be made to handle the lower grade  stuff in the ledge. To more thoroughly  cxplore the property a new tunnel will  be started in a few days  Work on the Great Dane group, whicli  wa3 recently secured by Mr. Drewry,  is also progressing favorably.  sy$  ;s��-  Have Good Looking Property.  Th.") owners of the Lone Dutchman  group of claims on the divide between  the north fork of Lemon creek and  Kokanee creek are congratulating  themselves that they have something  good. The work done upon the group  amounts practically to four assessments,  but it has been sufficient to make a very  lino showing. On the North Star claim  a shaft has been put down for fifteen  feet and in the bottom there is from  four to five feet of copper ore showing.  A_-..yc from this have given returns of  $30 in gold, 40 ounces silver, and four  per cent copper. On the Lone Dutchman a tunnel has been driven in for  fifteen feet upon a solid ledge of quartz.  There is a three-foot body of this quartz  which carries good values, assays from  it having returned $14 in gold. The  owners of the group, T. Henderson.  Jackson Radcliffe, Henry Reichert, and  J. C. Butler, have put in a raw-hide  trail from the Molly Gibson wagon road,  a distance of about three niiles, and will  continue work until the heavy mow  drives them  out.

When a shipping mine is owned by an  individual or individuals, as a rule, shipments and values are withheld for the  reason that it is none of the public's  concern what private individuals may  be doing. When shipping mines are  owned by companies, the information  is withheld until it is given out hy the  directors of the company, notwithstanding the shares of these companies are  held by the public, and are bought and  sold daily on the stock exchanges much  the same as clear ribs and July corn and  May wheat. Money is required, to devel-  opo the mines of Kootenay. and Yale,  and- the money must be procured from  the outside, as British Columbia has no  spare- money. In order to secure outside money, it must be shown that our  mines are shipping something of value.  This can best be done by publishing  authentic returns of ore shipments and  their value.  v The evidence given at the trials now  going on at Rossland show very clearly how untruthful are the statements  sent but by the Associated. Press from  that place. ^Contractor Geiser -**,vQr_ yesterday that he had only forty men at  work on his two contracts, and his foreman swore that only^hree of tho forty  were miners. Is it not a trifle absurd to  claim that work has been resumed in the  mines at Rossland with forty men,  when from six hundred. to seven hundred wore required before tho strike?  The most unblushingly false statements  are daily made in the interest of Bernard McDonald's management of the  Le Roi mines, but all without avail.  Self-respecting mine workers will have  nothing to do with the mines under  McDonald's management until certain  conditions prevail, and these.men,seem  to have the active sympathy of the  business' element of Rossland. Bernard  McDonald's di},y is gyer in British Columbia, '  The attempted assassination of president McKinley yesterday will bring  down the condemnation of all right-  thinking people on the heads of the  bands of Anarchists scattered throughout the United States.

Middle West Doesn't Like Them.
On the steamer from. New York; to
Naples was an Italian s.nose father had
sent him to the United States to learn
the   American  way  of  doing  business.
Here  is  an  instance  of  how  his  wits
had   been   sharpened   by-, contact   with
New York.   I had overheard a man ask
\ the smoking room  steward how much
he ought to give the head steward. The
steward  replied:     "Ten  dollars."    The
question was a foolish one anduthe answer absurd.   On the deck shortly afterward  I met the young Italian,  and to
;get some amusement out of him I told
■!him without any comment, what I had
"What-a!     Ten    dollars!      Cris_o!
."Madonna!     I  show  you."    He  rapidly
took   a   piece   of   pap,ar    out    of    his
pocket   and   a   pencil.     "Dis-a   steamer
have two hundred and. twenty passenger.      Make   one-a   round-a   treep New
York-a Napoli ever-a mont'.    Suppos-a
ft take   back - eighty   passengers.      Dat-a

Tourists  in Venice believe  that the
ysing(*rs in the boats who sing and tinky
tank at night opposite the main hotelsY
;:such as the Britannia, and Danieli, and
.'Bauer Greenwald, on the Grand Canal,
li'.ftre  employed by the hotel  association
y: as part of the game to attract tourists..
/This; may well be so, as one rarely sees
YVenetians  in  gondolas.    /While  I  was
there  I   saw  but "one  private  gondola,
■with  most  of  the  curtains  drawn;   LI
/caught a glimpse of an old Italian lady
-.seated   therein.    The  Venetians   walk
Mind cross the little, bridges, or take the
YJittle steamboats that ply up and do-wii
the main canals.

Ing her -former! popularity as a winter

Those now spend their winter month**
at Algiers or "Cario., There were not
many English .wandering over Italy this
year. That "tuppence" extra income
'■tax fe.e_.ps them at home.
I-met Mr. Middle West one day in'tho
Louvre,  where  I was  wandering on  ;\
7 vrainy   day.     He   was   seated,   loolrint
.across  the room  at  the   beautiful  pic-
; .-ture, "La Gioconda."
"Sit down, I've got something to say,"
•said he. I sat next to him. "I've had.
:'a_relapse;,.. I'm not feeling well today.
.; I've; just come   up   from   the   museum
• rlowrs   stairs   and   I've   seen   the   same

• ity,  as  you say a   great   Englishmen
>   named Carlyle called the great duality
■of  seeing  things  correctly;   but,   how-
• ever that may be, I am sick and tired
• .sure of the naked old Greeks and Ro-
: mans everywhere—in the shops, mu-
;seums, picture galleries. They are unfit
..for anything but the bath-tub. Do you
'.suppose that I will let my two young
(daughters see these things? Not for
aill the riches of the great state of Ohio
■would I do it. I gave a groan whenever
II saw young American girls goin**-
through those museums and galleries.
I never saw Italian, French, German,
or English girls—only American girls—
looking at Jupiter as the swan and Leda,
star instance
""Now . J am sitting here looking p.t
tliat lor.ejy Jocinde, dressed nearly up
to the neck, with her charming smile
and interesting face. That's all I want
to Bee of a woman, or a man—the face.
, Halph Stanzio painted one picture of a
'. woman, not a Madonna, dressed up to
the neck; La Fornarina, she was a
_a_.ere_nee, the guide told me. He loved
her; think of loving a woman who stood
all day in front of a roaring furnace,
baking bread, in hot summery Italy. He
painted another one of her showing her
—well, not dressed up to the neck. But
my wife says I must not talk of such
things. I have seen five thousand such
naked ladies in Italy—of course I mean
in pictures and statutes—and I'm tired
of them. I prefer looking at cow or
horse pictures.    It rests me.
"But   isn't" that  Joconde   picture   a
beauty.    That's the way to paint men
|-and women,  dressed  up  to  the  neck.
i "When I see naked pictures in a man's
| house,  I think there's a coarse streak
running through him.   When I see them
in  a  woman's   house—it  disgusts   mo.
; "When I get back to Chicago, I am going
[to  send  five  thousand   night-shirts   to
the Italian government as a present, to
I cover the naked statutes, and I am go-

States, Wc can understand them all.
They speak clearly, distinctly, each word
pronounced so one knows what they are
talking about. With the English you
can't. They have a 'brogue.' What is
the matter with them? Have they ton-
silitis of the throat? No, it's the Yorkshire pudding they are so fond of. They
talk as if they had their mouths filled
with it. And ain't their, jokes stupid?
England would be a pleasant place, to
visit if there were not so many Englishmen there. The English are afraid
to let the French build a tunnel from
Calais to Dover, for fear that the French
will come over some night and kick
them oft' the island."
Mr. Middle West's talk about the English reminded me of a story told by an
old sailor man before the mast speaking
of Tommy Atkins. His cruiser, went into
a South African port where there was
an English garrison. At the landing he
noticed a crowd of Atkinses looking
out at the ship and brushing the flies
off their faces and necks with a whisk
made out of a wooden handle and a
horse's tail. One of the sailor men
asked: •'-What's that Tommy Atkins
has in his 'ands?" The answer came
back from one cf the jackies: "That's
hall the bloody fools 'as left of their
bloomin' 'orses."
Mr. Middle West has a very high opinion of colonel Slccum, the American
army officer who watched the fight from
the British side. " ..   ■ .
"I'm dead gone," he said, "on colonel
Slocum. Hasn't he a pleasant way of
saying disagreeable things? I saw something like this in one cf the English
papers: 'If ever,' Slocum says, 'a people
or a nation exemplified/ the phrase,
"brave to a fault," it is the British. If
they had been less brave, there would
have been: many less faults and more
victories in the war.'.McKinley ought
to promote that man. 'Hasn't he a pleasant way of telling the truth?. Read between the lines. He means that the
British officers were so stupid that they
got a great many of their/soldiers killed
and lost many battles. I'll bet old Mac
and his cabinet had quite a chuckle when
they gave that to the papers. The English, are so hungry for American praise
that they swallow this taffy. We always
send taffy-givers to the English court,
and they swallow it all—every,bit.' Then
that daisy, Slocum, says that the little
fellow,' general Roberts, 'was generally
deceived., by the general professions of
submission by the Boers.' Isn't that a
diplomatic way of saying that lord Bobs
had his leg pulled? -
"S.-.y, ain't those cradles that a man
who has been married for twenty-eight
year's has to sleep in, in the French and
Italian hotels, with his wife in the ether,
a crazy idea? I kick around when I'm
asleep, and fall out three times a week.
I'm accustomed to the big Ohio beds.
"Say, I'm taking the usual Creosote

Alimonia, to commemorate,the triumphs
of her beauty and magnetism." He describes her as "a beautiful devil, possessed of an ungovernable and satanic
temper, and losing control of it at the
least chance, and without any provocation whatsoever," and expresses contempt for a "wife, the supreme custodian of a husband's honor," who "wantonly runs to lawyers and the court and
the public,'with that husband's confidential love-letters, relating to nothing
else than his ardent love for her." Concluding, he-states, "as a fact terribly,
pertinent hereto,, that alimony is simply a standing premium the law offers
for wifely , weakness, treachery, and
worthlessless. But for its seductions,
my wife would not have deserted me."

Dr. Fridtjof Nansen, the Arctic explorer, is a litigant in a Chicago court.
Dr. Nansen was in a fair way to receive the fortune left by Mathias Blessing, a wealthy Scandinavian, who died
in Chicago two years ago, as the other
heirs, it is said, had waived their claims
in his favor. The petition, however, is
filed by Mrs. Cunningham of Chattanooga, Tenessee, who says she is the daughter of the decedent's brother, David.
Mary Anderson-Navarro emerged from
her rural retirement last week and attended a bazaar given by lady Elcho at
Wiskhamford Manor to raise funds to
restore Wicl-hamford church, one of the
oldest and most interesting churches in
England. Arthur Balfour was the guest
of honor, but Mrs. Navarro, though
shunning publicity, attracted more attention that the leader of the house cf
commons. One means of raising money
was the selling of autographs written
by notables present. Mrs. Navarro's
autographs brought the highest prices.
General Frederick D. Grant, upon his
arrival in New York last week after a
trip through Russia and Eastern Germany, said that in all the time he had
been away, the custom house in the metropolis was the only place where his
Ln,'.L.iigo had been subjected to an examination. "After making me declare
everything which I brought and swear
to the truth of my statement," he says,
"they immediately searched my trunks
and turned them upside down to see
whether I was a liar and smusrsler
which the government presuposes all its
citizens to be. I am a high-tariff man
myself, but I do not think the Republican party has done itself any good by
these new regulations. I had only sixty-
three dollars' worth of articles, and they
made me pay thirty-three dollars duty.
That seems a trifle excessive."
Paymaster Robert Burton Rodney,
United States America, retired, of Washington, D. C, has filed a cross petition

Liane de Pougy, the noted Parisian
beauty, has just made an interesting
appearance in the French courts, owing
to difficulties she has been having with
one of her former dressmakers. It appears that a magnificent dress, described
as the role of a mediaeval queen, all
white,. with. silver embroidery, and garnished with moon-stone" work, was ^supplied some time ago to Mme. de Pougy.
The bil amounted to three hundred and
twenty dollars, the lace embroidery and
garnishing being estimated at one.hundred and twenty dollars. Mme. de Pougy
took the dress and used it, but neglected
to pay the bill. Weeks and months rolled by, and the fashionable tradesman
who supplied the queenly robe finally
took the.case to court. Liane declared
that she was not responsible for ordering the dress. She had not even gone to
the dressmaker's about it. The article
was ordered for her by'one of her admirers, at a house where her measure
was known, and then sent to her as a
gift. The president of the sixth chamber
of the civic tribunal evidently had faith
in Liane's testimony, for he gave judgment in favor of the dressmaker, but
ordered twenty dollars deducted from
the bill, as it contained an arithmetical
Servaut Girl Question Solved.
William E. Curtis, who is traveling in
Norway, says that the servant-girl problem has been solved there, although he
doubts whether a similar solution would
be accepted by domestic servants in
America. "In large cities like Bergen
and Christiania,'' he writes, "there is a
central employment bureau under the
direction of the municipal government,
and twice a year—one week before New
Year's Day, the 4th of June—there is a
general change of servants by those who
are dissatisfied with existing conditions,
and engagements are made for the ensuing six months of the year. Families
who want servants fill out blanks setting
forth what is required, and the wages
they are willing to pay. These are filed
at the employment office, and are noted
in a conspicuous manner upon a blackboard. Women or men in search of
employment go to this bureau during
the weeks named, examine the blackboard, and apply to the clerk in charge
for further information. If they desire
submit their recommendations to the
clerk, and if he is satisfied he gives them,
a card to the lady of the house. That
card is good for the day only, and must
be returned by the lady of the house
before the close of office hours. If the
girl is engaged, the blanks upon the
card are filled out with a general statement as to her duties, the term of service and the wages agreed upon, and the
card is filed away for reference, if necessary. If the lady of the house is not
satisfied with the applicant she sends
her away, and returns the card marked
'not satisfactory' to headquarters, with
a request that other applicants be sent
to her. If the applicant is satisfactory
tho lady of the house pays her a bonus
of one krone or two kroner, called 'hand
money'—that is, she crosses her hand
with silver as an evidence of good faith
—and the girl agrees to report for duty
within one week after New Year's or
Midsummer's Day, as the case may be.
This is to allow her present employer
an opportunity to fill her place. In
some of the smaller towns the dates for
changing servants are April 14th and
October 14th^	
English Domestic Life.
A writer in the London Daily Mail
thus pictures the domestic life of the
average Englishman: "He rises in the
morning from his New England folding
bed, shaves with American soap and a
Yankee safety razor, pulls on his Boston
boots over his socks from North Carolina, fastens his Connecticut braces, slips
his Waltham or Waterbury watch in
his pocket, and sits down to breakfast.
There he congratulates his wife on the
way her Illinois straight-front corset
sets off her Massachusetts blouse, and he
tackles his breakfast, where he eats
bread made from prairie flour, tinned
oysters from the Pacific coast, and a
slice of Kansas City, bacon, while his
wife plays with a slice of Chicago ox
tongue. The children are given American oats. At the same time he reads
his morning paper printed by American
machines, and possibly on American paper. He rushes out, catches the electric
tram (New York) to Shepherd's Bush,
where he gets in a Yankee elevator to
take him on to the American-fitted electric railway to the city. At luncheon he
hastily swallows some cold roast beef

that comes from a cow in Iowa, and
flavors it with,the latest New England
pickles, and then soothes his mind with
a couple of Virginia cigarettes. To follow his course all. day would be wearisome. But when evening comes he seeks
relaxation at the latest American musical comedy, and finishes up with a couple of 'little liver pills' 'made in America.' "

At Vancouver an effort .was made to have the ex  parte injunction continued until the trial  of the action.

The allegation of the plaintiff is that while he, was ill and as'he  thought on his death* bed he made what  he.thought was a will, in which he made  his property 'over to his  wife for the  benefit of herself and heir children. He  did not die,as wasYexpected, and he. is  now of the opinion that what he signed  while ill was not,a will but a deed of  conveyance, and. he has. started an action in the .court ;8f King's Bench in  Manitoba for' the purpose, of having the  deed of conveyance which he elgned set  aside, and to have his wife declared a  trustee of the f.unds already' paid, her on  account of the deed and to  have the  same set aside.

McKillop of Lethbridge. Miss McKillop Ib a niece of A.  L. McKillop of this city and will spend  the winter in Nelson as the guest of  Mrs. Lawrence. Mrs. Lawrence brought  back from Winnipeg a number of souvenirs of the South African campaign,  ln the siege of Kimberley Mr. Lawrence had no fewer than 47 relatives.  At the time of the siege the head of the  family occupied a double house. One end  of this house was struck by a Boer shell,  killing one man and wrecking.the building. Pieces of this shell were worked  uy into souvenirs and brought to Win-  Company May Wind Up  R. S. Lennie and P. E. Wilson leave  tins  morning to  attend a meeting of  the   Noonday-Curley   Mining   Company  at Silverton.   At,this- meeting it is'expected that some decision .will  be arrived at with respect to. the indebtedness of the company, whether the com-  ���p'any'will go into liquidation or make  somo  other   disposition   of  its  assets.  There are a number of claims against  the  company,  and in addition to the  ordinary. claims'there are those - of H.  J.   Stewart and-Andrew  Stewart,  who  virtually claim all of the assets of the  company.   The company was organized  to   develop'   the; ' Noonday   arid   Curley  properties.   At   the  time   it 'was   supposed that the company'owned a quarter interest in tlie group" and held a  bond upon the remaining interest.   The  bond was allowed to lapse and the Stewarts, it is said, now cjaiiri tne remaining quarter upon tho grounds that the  transfer \o the company was conditional  and that .the conditions were not complied with.   It now looks as if it-will'be  a fight between the ordinary creditors  and  the  Stewarts  for  the  quarter  interest.

The  work is now going ahead in the face of  the written orders of the architect to  stop. Just what authority the foreman  has for this very unusual proceeding it  is difficult to say, but the architect has  ���so far received no word from Ottawa  to account for ifc- The only instructions  that the architect has received are with  respect to the water tables/concerning  only some minor objections to which he  had .referred incidentally. The chief objections   taken   by   the   architect   were  with  respect to  the manner, in which  the dimension stone waj^bj^ded^nclYtlie^  "bush~h!im__ering~of~th"e~m  of chiselling.  These matters were not  even referred to by the authorities and  the architect is therefore at a loss to  understand the action  of the foreman  in; ignoring Jiim   and  proceeding  with  the  work  in  the  face  of  his, written  orders to quit. The present state of affairs means that Nelson's public building is now going up without any supervision at all/and it is not unlikely that  several  of  the stones ��� going  into  the  building today will  have to come out  next week,  In order that tho authorities at Ottawa may clearly understand the class of  work tliat they are getting on the building architect Macdonald has taken the  trouble to have most of the stones which  he has taken exception photographed.  These photographs speak for themselves. They should .each Ottawa by  Monday evening^ and until they do the  architect does not expect to hear anything further from the capital.  . If in the face of the evidence submitted by the architect, to the effect that  the contractors are. not complying with  the specifications, the Dominion archi-  ' tect should; support th;e contractors,  the cause of the local architect will be  ���taken up by the local -Liberal association. It is evident to most citizens who  have taken the'trouble to familiarize  themselves with the matter that the  architect is doing his best to secure the  stability and preserve the appearance  of the building, and the local Grits are  determined that the architect shall not  be sacrificed to the BoJitieal pull which  the contractors are supposed to possess.
