The  upper floor will be utilized partly for  the storage or display of stock and  partly for an iron and tin worker's shop.  The erection of buildings of the class  above described by business firms who  have learned'from practical experience  the actual condition of things of this  district is a significant testimony to the  improving state of trade and the good  prospects that promise increasing business and eventual profitable returns.  G. Arthur Rendell is relinquishing the  active management of mercantile business of the Eholt Trading Company at  Eholt. Mr. Rendell is retaining his interest in this flouiishmg concern, but  is for^ health reasons turning over its  management to H. J. Bayley, well and  favorably known in this district during a somewhat lengthy connection with  Rendell & Company of Greenwood, who  with Robeit Wood, whose store business  was amalgamated with theirs five or six  years ago, were the pioneer merchants  of< Boundary Creek valley.  The two county court cases mentioned  in last Monday's dispatch as having  been postponed until today for , trial  by jury, have fallen through, neither  plaintiffs having taken the stops requisite to secure a jury. .     >_  IT NOW LOOKS AS IF NO CASE  COULD BE MADE STICK AGAINST  EMMA GOLDMAN.

He  got into Spokane last night and came  on to Rossland at once on the delayed  j.Great Northern tiain, reaching here at  V;7:30 this evening    His coming direct  ���has set a great many rumors afloat as to  the cause and as to what will take place  at the Le Roi  offices  in consequence  jMr. Bratnober would not speak for publication this evening, and only admitted  that he had come here on Le Roi business.  '���; Architect Honeyman's residence on'  ���the south side was badly damaged by fire  early this morning. Loss $1500; insurance $1200.

The Minor states that it ha.  a its  possession  Incontrovertible  evidence that Mr. McDonald used the expression attributed to  him, and chal-  )*_ges the union official to deny on oath  he   truth  of its  assertion.    A couple  f days ago three men were discharged  com the Josie mine and came down  own to the Union hall, where they were  iken care of.    Today one of the trio,  iving the" name of Edward F. Frey of  ipokane, was arrested for carrying con-  ���jaled weapons.   He was.dismissed, but  ;.e gun, a.'$15 Smith & Wesson,.was  imflscated. ���������������������������  -   Political Situation at Victoria,  J. Fred Hume returned from a .trip  to Victoria last evening. He says matters political have become very much  .mixed by reason of the action of premier Dunsmuir in taking J. C. Brown,  the member for Westminster City, into  the cabinet The opinion on the Coast  seems to be that this will cost the government at least three-members m the  city of Victoria, as well as "two mem-  beis in Vancouver. All told the m-Label's of the legislature who are op.-'iajd  to the entrance of Biown into the cabinet figure out that this move,will result  in the defeat'of the government,, but  there is at present np means of knowing just how the" members in the' interior will take the change. ','  Of the members  of the house who  twill oppose the government as a protest against the entrance,, of the mem-  ;.ber for\Westminster into the cabinet  ' the. names ^ of Jthec| ollowmg*.. are.- mentioned;* but it has' ribtyet" been demon-;  &trated that all of those mentioned are  correctly placed:   'Helmcken and  McPhillips of Victoria, Haywa'rd of Esqui-  malt, Neil of Alberni, Garden and Tatlow of Vancouver, McBride of Dewdney,  Murphy ot West Yale, Ellison of East  Yale,  and   Green  ofi.Slocan.   ''Against'  these may be set the members _of the  Mai tin following in the house who can  be  counted  upon 'suppprtmg the .new  combination*   Martin, Brown, Maclnnes,  Gilmour,  Oliver,   Munro,  and   Stables.  The uncertain members, tlieiefore, easily  hold the balance of power.   As the two  bye-elections caused by the retirement  of finance minister Turner and Brown's  acceptance of a portfolio, the opponents  of the government profess to be able  to carry both, but at present the opponents of the government are doing all  the talking.    In Victoria the name of  the government candidate has not been  decided upon, and no one appears to be  -able-to_hint"whcrh"e^wilFbe^   In" "either"  case the issue would, in a very great  measure,   turn   upon   the   prospective  strength of the government . There is  one  seat  which   the  government  will  likely lose for the next session, at least.  This is the riding (North Victoria) represented by speaker Booth.   Mr. Booth  is at piesent ill in the hospital at Victoria, and it is-said theie is very little  prospect of his being able to take his  scat next session.

MONTREAL, September ll.���The synod of the Church of England opened its  session hero this morning with choral  celebration of holy communion in Christ  church  cathedral.    The celebrant was  the   bishop   of  Toronto,   while   bishop  Dunn of Quebec! and , Bishop Kingdon  of Fredericton, were epistler and gospeller, respectively.   The litany was intoned by bishop Mills ofKingston.   The  archbishop ofMontreal was.'the preacher.

The remainder of the afternoon session  was: occupied  by;, the  discussion  of a  resolution favoring the adoption of the  ��� Go'thenburg system., of liquor licensing  in Canada.,   No decision was reached.  ". Why Seymour, Resigned.  ;,':--'Y'.HAliIFAX-, September, -il.���The reason fo'r: the .resignation of lord William  Seymour, as-general ofilcer commanding the British troops in British North  America, has just become known. When;  the first Canadian contingent reached -  Halifax, Seymour- assumed command.  Hutton-objected, saying Seymour had  no jurisdiction over the troops. Seymour protested to lord Minto, and Minto  decided in Hutton's flavor. Se'ymour  then! appealed tp Lansdowne, and Hutton was again supported. As a result  Seymour resigned. When he "reached  England, he appealed to the war ofllce  board, which has just rendered a decision ln his favor, reversing the decisions of Lansdowne and Minto. .  WASHINGTON,   September   ll.���The  department of .justice'has'not decided  upon any steps to secure possession of  Emma Goldman for the purpose of taking action against her in^the federal  courts.   She was arrested by the Chicago police on the request of the Buffalo  authorities, and it is supposed by the  department of justice that ,she will be  itaken to New York state.    The belief  is  that  the  governor' ofi Illinois  will  honor  any request the  state  of New  York may makve for the prisoner. There  is no' reason for the federal authorities  to desire possession of ^Miss Goldman  now.    They haveYplenty of-time while  she 'is m the hands of Ytate authorities  to "discuss their plans,' and to act later  if they, see fit.    Secret 'service authorities state she .was] not arrested at their  request and that they have no idea of  prosecuting her, unless directed by the  department of justice'to do so, or unless  they secure testimony ^hat she was involved in the shooting'of the president.  Chief'Wilkie said today, that so far  he has not heard ,any evidence tending  to show that'the .Anarchist bodies at  Paterson, New Jersey, had anything,to  do with the shooting of the president.  Chief Wilkie denied in the most emphatic terms the report that his office  'had received warnings"that'the president's life would be' attempted *at'Buf-'  falo.    "Usually we get a large number  of letters from ^cranks every time the  president ��� goes toNa place1," said chief  Wilkie;  "but we did not get even any  crank letters just before the president  went to Buffalo.'* We investigate-practically, all'the warnings and intimations  that come 'here, >no matter  how convinced .we may;.be that .they are from,  irresponsible ' persons, "and   we,-would'  -have-made-; (antinvestigatldn- this-time  had anything been received."     ] < '*-  'BUFFALO, September 11.���District attorney Penny and secretary of war Root  will confer today on the legal steps to  be taken for the prosecution" of'Leon  Czolgosz and Emma Goldman.' The" police have encountered a difficulty m finding evidence of overt- acts within the  state of New York on the part of the  Goldman woman and seem Inclined to  favor her piosecution in the federal  courts. It is expected that the conference between the secretary of war and  the district attorney will result in some  definite plan of action.  CHICAGO, September 11.���Magistrate  Prindiville today granted a continuance  until the 19th in the case of the Anarchist lecturer, Emma Goldman, who  was arrested here yesterday. City prosecutor Owen said that the prisoner was  charged with conspiracy to murder the  president, and therefore he desired that  she be held without bail. No lawyer, ap-  pearedto represent her; but, with a determined snap of her teeth, she said she  was ready to proceed without counsel.  When the court granted the continuance,  she said she wished to be allowed her  freedom under bond. The magistrate  said that as the last bulletin indicated  that the distinguished patient at Buffalo was on the high road to recovery,  they would consider the matter of bail  further and would announce his decision at noon.  Late this afternoon he decided to hold  her without bail until Friday 'morniin^  or until she can come before a judge in  the upper courts.

The. attorney general  of  Ontario'  announced  this morning that frontier  police  would  attend   every  exhibition,  and anyYthing in,the nature of a prize,  fight would be promptly stopped.  Y VICTORIA, September 11.���M. K. Rogers , pf ; Seattle, representing the Amalgamated Copper Company, has, according tb reeenfc djspatchgs frpm the north,  purchased the Bonanza group 0?Ymines  put and it will also en���D,le the company  to('work a very mucn greater number  of men to advantage, thus cutting down  the cost of mining  It is thought that the crosscut which  is now being dmen will open up a veiy  rich body of ore, as it will strike the  ledge immediately below the rich chute  of oro which was taken out in the upper workings of the property while it  was being developed by the first owners.  This ore was thrown over the dump, but  when the present company took hold  some four ca��3 of the ore wero sorted  i and shipped to Pueblo That the chute  contained some of the richest ore mined  iu this section was ./idenced by >the  smelter returns, lrom these-shipments,  ono of the cars shipped giving a smelter return of 320 ounces silver, to the ton.  If'it should be, found that th_;ledge carries the same values where it is tapped  lower .own by.the present tunnel it will  mean a big thing for the holders of  Molly Gibson stock. 7'Z  .When the ledge is cut in the lower  level it is the intention of the company  to drift both ways on it as "well as tp  mako a raise of 250 feet to connect with  the 'upper workings. As it is-expected  that this upraise will be in pre, the  'making of it,will necessitate the:faking  out of considerable quantities yof high  grade product. -   ..';.���;-.  Those who.are familiar^vith^Jl-h. Molly  Gibson. say. 'that.Yfhat the.; prpRerty re'-;  quires more ;than .any thing else "is a  concentrator. There. are at ypresenty on'  th'e dumps,several thousand tons"-pf 'pre,  the average values of -which'", are -s^id  .to be from 25 to 30 ounces silver, as well  as considerable quantities of the -same  grade of pre in the ��� stopes, .This pre,  while it would yield a handsomeY profit  if concentrated, will barely payth*. qpst  ���of mining and treatment under present  .conditions. It is said that the company'  has received offers, from mill men. who  were willing to put up a mill for the ore  'at-present upon the dumps, but the offer  was not entertained .by; the officers of  the company, and.as yet the��� company  has not taken any steps to put in a mill  on its own account. While work upon the  crosscut has been proceeding the company has had a few men at work' in the  jipper workings cleaning up the stopes  and  getting things in shape -for  work  this winter. These men have now sacked.  ;and ready 'for shipment some 200 tons  of high grade ore, which will be brought  dpwn the kill as soon as snow comes,  ,    William McAdams, editor of the San-  , don Paystreak, is in Nelson on his' way"  ;east on. a-six week's holiday trip. He  says things in the Slocan have'taken* a  turn for the better. There'are now employed in the mines, aside from the pro-',  perties, along Slocan lake, at least'500  ,men,- and it is safe to say that tne'num-  ���ber will keep on growing. Of the prop-  'ertiesi'he said several  of them never  looked better, but in some Instances the  owners were face to face with, large expenditures in their search for fresh ore  bodies.. This was the case of the Last  Chance, Payne and others of lesser note,  Atrthe last Chance the long tunnel which  is being driven to tap'the ledge at'a  depth ofUOOO feet vertical is1 now in 50  feet( beyond'where it was'expected the  ledge    would    be    encountered.'   This'  prompted the management, of the* pro-'  erty to call in the sei vices of professor  Paiks of Spokans for a report on the  geology of.the hill. The'tunnel is now in  1780 feet, but professor Parks in-his re-<  port-predicts that the tunnel will have  tto crowd11900 feet pretty close before.it  can be expected to tap the ledge. Curiously, enough  the report of* piofessor  Parks i as a geologist is' said to have  borne out the report furnished by -the  men* operating  the   electrical   mineral  finder,  This  appliance,  which  was/at  flrst. generally regarded ^asv a ,fake,  is  .now;; being 'viewed with Very difcerent  feehngs.^The finder has been very extensively-employed in prospecting'the  Noble   Five   hill   and   the   results   attained with it are said to have been astonishing. As a test'of the merit "of the'  finder the Last Chance people have applied it to the work of tracing the-Last  Chance,, ledge, with the, result/tnat^ the  ledge has .been traced and/ pegged* but  lor a .distance of* 4000 feet   As located  by the nnder^the ledge-runs through ^the*  Summit and Bird fractional claim., making a very shaip tum, but bearing out  the   contention   which   superintendent  Regan of the Last Chance has made tor  s>ome time. At several points along the  couise traced out by the finder the ledge  has been opened and the reading of the  electric finder verified. One interesting  icature in connection with these openings is tne result of the work done on  the Summit* and Bird fraction, owned  by Alex Smith. These claims weie purchased by Smith some time ago on the  suength ot a very good surface showing and work started in a small way.  Up to date, out of a 38 foot hole the  owner  has  taken  seven  cais  of high  grade carbonates'and galena.  The big properties ot the camp in the  opinion of Mr. McAdams upon present  showings are the Slocan Star, Reco-  Goodenough, Rambler, and American  Boy The Star is at present working a  ioice of 50 men, but is expected that thib  number will shortly be increased to 150.  claimed  that  tho  company has  three  chutes of ore, but there is considerable  work ahead of the company. The word  from the American Boy is highly encouraging and it is reported that a dividend will shortly be-declared upon the  stock, which at present is down in the  vicinity of 10 cents. The Rambler property continues to develop well. Work at  this property has been  followed with  interest by mining men for the reason  that it was generally understood that  the primai y rock of the section would  be encountered sooner on this property  than on any of the others. The Rambler  has now attained, a depth of 700 feet and  the primary rock1 is proven to-be granite, but the most satisfactory, feature in  connection with the matter is the knowledge that the veins enter4 the granite,  and in the case of the Rambler'the ore  appears to be richer than ever before.  *--"���_,  j ��� -vt|  ���   *���" ^-wl  ,' '-^ri  *J1:   1  '-.

Pioiessor Parks is now at the Star. It  is generally uudeistood that he is pre-  panng himself to give evidence for the  Byion N   White Company in the apex  suit which has been entered against it  As to the Slocan Star, it is baid that  the bhowing in the property is the best  in its history. From the'No. 5 level a  winze ha. been sunk a distance of 120  feet ifpon a fine showing of grey copper. It is said that this ore body continues for the entire depth of the winze,  and in the bottom is ns strong as at any  point. This paystreak varies in \yldtli  from 8 inches to 2 feet aiid is said to  have an average value of 120 ounces  silver, Work upon this winze was discontinued some time ago owing to the  need for improved machinery.' The qwni  ers of the Slocan Star are at present  making  arrangements ' with   the   Trail  smelter fpr the shipping of, its entire  output iii its crude form, the mine in  return for an* exceptionally low treatment rate undertaking to do this and at  lead percentage in the shipments.     ���  In speaking qf tlie; Reco-Goodenough  showing Mr. McAdams said, that in one  v/inze,; which: has. been sunk for a depth.  of 130 feet to an'intermediate level, and  ���-.iehg a drift upon this level, for a distance of 110 feet,  the owners have a  showing of about eight inches of ore.  which is said to 'equal in value that bf  the former shipments whiclv.hav. made-  the Recq-Goodenqugh property famous.-  This paystreak,.it'is estimated, will average all the way from 800 to G0Q ounces'  silver to the ton.

An experiment is to  be mado at the 'Payne with electric  drills, which will be put to work in the  No. S tunnel: These drills have been  found to work very advantageously at  Georgetown, Colorado, but they have  novel* been tried in British Columbia  and it yet remains to be proven whether  the conditions here are favorable to  them. The drills arrived at Kaslo on  Tuesday and were sent forward to the  Payne yesterday. They cost upwards of  $1700 each*.

LONDON,   September   11. ��� Martial  Faugerln,    a    Frenchman,    who    was  charged today at Clerkenwell court with  the  murder  of Herman  Jung, an  old  Jew, about ten days ago, told a remarkable story of a plot to kill Joseph Chamberlain, the colonial secretary. Faugerin  said ho had been the recipient of small  loans from Jung.   The day of the murder Jung summoned him to his shop,  where they discussed the misery caused  by the South African war, whicli Jung  declared Mr. Chamberlain was responsible for, and told Faugerln that if he  could kill Mr,yChamberlain, he (Jung),  through intermediaries, would guaranteo  him, a fortune, tendering him a ten-  pound note to buy good clothes to enable him tor approach his victim.   Faugerln says when he refused, Jung declared   he  should   not  leave the  shop  alive, and that the latter picked up a  heavy  iron,   rushed   on  Faugerin  and  felled him to the, ground.   Faugerin then  drew a. knife and stabbed his; assailant  in the neck,   The prisoner, who signed  the foregoing statement, was committed  for trial.

MONTREAL, September 11.���An injunction was served on the city this  morning by G.^A. Nantel, to prevent  mayor Prefontaine signing the lighting  contract with the Royal Electric Company, on the grounds that the contract  was given in an irregular manner. The  Royal first tendered at ?85 per lamp a  year ago, but was forced to come down  in prico, to ?60 by the action of the St.  Lawrence. Power Company, which  agreed to supply to light for $54.75 per"  lamp per year. The Royal's' friends in  the city couneil succeeded- in subsequently having, tjhe contract awijrd.ed  them at reduced price, henqe Nantel's  action.  hands, and I am sure you will understand that it has beet* no light task,  considering the short time I have had  to unravel the tangled skein of this  company's affairs. The threads of the  transactions of the three allied companies���that is to say, the London &  Globe Corporation, the British America  Corporation, and the Standard'Exploration Company���perpetually cross and  recross. I stand here today fully conscious of tlio extreme difficulty of making clear to you in words the whole  story of this company in which such  a number of difficulties aie necessarily  involved.  .HISTORY OF THE  COMPANY.  The company was registered  in October, 1.97, and: was promoted by the  London & Globe Corporation.    Its flrst  directors were lord  Dufferin,  who resigned Yin  December,  1900;   lord  Loch,  who died in June, 1900; the hon. C. H.  Macintosh, who resigned in May, 1899;  E.  A.  Hoare, who resigned in March,  1898, and Whitaker Wright.   Lord William Beresford was appointed a director  in January, 1898, and "he died  In  April, 1899.   R. E. Leman was appointed  a director in January, 1900, and resigned in December, 1900.   Sinclair Macleay  was appointed a director in February,  1900, and is still a director.* Thus Whitaker  Wright and  Sinclair  Macleay are  the only two directors-at present remaining.   I think that all the directors  who are bound to be present are i-ere*  today,   but  I  should   like  to  tell  yoir  of one thing I have done.   Lord Dufferin  came over to see me some time ago,  and gave all the information he had.  I believe he placed every memorandum,  in his possession at my disposal.   I am  not entitled to require lord Dufferin to  come to this meeting, T*ut he said he was  quite willing to come over from Ireland  for the purpose* in spite of his health  not being good.,   I told hinvthat really  I did not think it necessary; 7 did not  feel that I was justified in asking him  to come, and I hope ���* you will approve  of my action in tha matter.   (Applause.)  In December, 1897, the prospectus was  1 issued by the London & Globe Corporation.   One million pounds sterling was  offered for subscription, and the whole  of it was subscribed ;~��S00,000 was then  subscribed by the public, ��200,000 being-  kept in reserve by the Standard Explora-  (Contlnuod on Third Page,)  TTM]  '_$\  . ,'l R-y,___'l'ftfcR_-��_^ ��-  ���-w-sS.     - ��  * i,iW.-l����k"'*W_'ttJIl��.*3__-^^  i��*__ar��Has��a_iaB>v_i  nU^^At______jAiU_j__.'J  THE KELSON TRIBUNE,  THIJBSDAY MORNIISrG,vSEPTEMBER 12, 1901  2_*_2_ _____>��__  iff ���   to  to  m  to  to  ���L    *  4_*  sr,'  fl.  *  to  to  to  'for  ooDvcjp-A-isr^r  INCORPORATED 1670.

The report of ,the official 'liquidator of  the   British   America V Corporation,   of  which s*Whittakpr (��� W/i ightYl of  London  was   managing.. director J and.' Bernard)  McDonald ' of  Rosslana  resident  man-  -a'ger, is interesting reading fatter, seeing'that both these "worthy" gentlemen  have said that mining has1 not been successful at Rossland, because of the arrogant interference of the"'miners' union  at that place. The Tribune today contains  the  report  in,- full.   All   that* is  wanted to kill the mining industry in  tliis province, so far as outside capital  is concerned, is a few more disclosures  'such- as is ,now being made in the B. A.t  C. case and which have been made in  the War Eagle and Center Star mines.  No other mining country on earth has  had so many mining companies organized for the purpose ,of fleecing the public. Yet the promoters and managers of  these   fraudulent  companies   have 'the  unblushing effrontery to .proclaim that  the non-success of their ventures > was-  due entirely to the bad laws of the province and to the worthlessness of the  men working underground.   1 ,   'I  Daniel James Munn, canneryman, has  decided not to make thei race against  John-Cunningham_Browri"InY;New_West="  minster, - and Thomas Gifford, senior,  jeweler, has-been tendered .and has accepted the job of trying : to. down, the  newly appointed provincial secretary,in  the Dunsmuir government.

There used to be a saying in some  parts of Canada that the man with' the  theodolite was the sure harbinger of an  election. Hopes of railway assistance  certainly have played a more or less important part in the provincial elections  of Nova Scotia ever since confederation.  The election now at hand is no exception  to the rule. A railway along the south  shore of the province has long been the  dream and desire of'a people who have  paid some of their share of the cost "of  railway construction in Canada and still  enjoy the privilege of the stage coachi  At one time when it looked as though  there was going to be a government assisted railway go their way, it swung in'  another direction and there was actu-  aljy/a grant of cash made from the  treasury of Nova Scotia towards the disappointed counties. This grant was  known as the "diverge fund," and was  meant to be used in improving the pub-  lie services of the counties (Queens and  Shelburne) as a recognition of the fact  that they were not being justly treated  in being kept so long without a railway.  The diverge fund was dispensed as political patronage by the party In power  In the provincial legislature, which happened to be the Liberal party.  Ten or twelve years ago there was a  charter granted by the provincial government, led by W. S. Fielding, for the  construction of a railway from Yarmouth to Halifax, along the south shore,  the usual government subvention being promised. While the promoters  were in the United States financing  their scheme, Mr. Fielding gave encour  agement to a narrow gauge railway project, and-eventually gave a charter to a  company to build a two foot road-along  exactly the same route as' that Yof the  South Shore Railway Company! The  narrow gauge company was being promoted by one of the local government's  political supporters. When the South  Shore" company's surveyors got oriY the  ground they found a. small party of surveyors-for the^narrow gauge concern  also at work, and, indeed, ground had  actually been broken towards construction, though at the time the narrow  gauge company had��not yet j received, a  charter. .Then there ensued the remarkable spectable of the "battle of the  gauges." The broad gauge people had  received assurances of the usual support  from the' Dominion government, (then  Conservative), but the affection of the  'Liberal local government was concentrated on. the narrow gauge company.'  The'resultwas that the local election of  * the year 1894, was very largelj, run in  that part'of th'e province on* the' railway  issue as usual, and the leader of the Conservative opposition was defeated' by the  promoter of the narrow gaugeMn person.  ' Some fifteen miles, of abandoned standard construction, involving "some tliree-.  hundred thousand dollars ' expenditure,  about thirty miles of narrow "gauge construction widened out to standard width  and .now in operation}jn a small way,  form the railway 'situation "in Southern  Nova Scotia at present ' '  Coincident with the announcement of  the dissolution of.the house comes the  news that the Nova Scotia government'  have entered Into an arrangement'with  Mackenzie & Mann for the construction  of'the road from Yarmouth to Halifax.  This road is to run through the counties  of Yarmouth, Shelburne, Queens, Lunr  enburg, and Halifax, so that eleven supporters of the provincial government out  -of * thirty-eight maybe expected to re--  ceive the gratitude of the''electorate.  The' contractors are to receive ?13,500  a mile from the government of Nova'  Scotia,_and_the_road^is_td-be-180-miles-  !  PKMEBOI  t ���        '.'

Thus it' is within the  range of possibility that- the railway  which is being built in connection with  the election of the province by the sea  will cost the public $3,582,000. The indications are that it will be built at last,  however, and it will open up an interesting piece of country, besides greatly  helping the government in the present  election.

Prior to the issue of the  prospectus  a provisional  contract had  been entered into by the British'America  Corporation with the London & Globe  to purchase certain options for ��500,000.  These options were in the Yukon and in  British Columbia, and had cost the Lon-  *   don & Globe ��100,000.    Mr. Macintosh  was the vendor.   Now, to take the options in British Columbia, the first step  that the board of the British America  Corporation  took  was  to  appoint  Mr.  Macintosh resident director in British  Columbia,   and   he   thereupon   started  from   England   for   British   Columbia.  .Among the options purchased from the  London & Globe was an option over the  shares of- a Canadian company which  then owned Le Roi mine.   That option  was to buy ?5 shares of the Canadian  company at $12 a share, making a total  of $6,000,000 for the whole mine.   When  the directors  came  to inquire  into it  they found that the price was'too-high,  consequently they; -abandoned this option   which   they ' purchased  from   the  London  & 'Globe.    There  were  500,000  shares of this Canadian company, and  eventually- the   board   of   the   British  America   Corporation    bought   270,670  shares at ?G each���half the option price  ���and they ultimately bought the rest  of the shares at $7.25'.  AN ACTION AGAINST THE CORPO-  t ���     * "        RATION. '"  *   Well, tho pepole who sold at $6 have  since  been *extremely dissatisfied,.- owing to" the fact that other dealers got  $7.25,,and the result is'that the owners  of the shares sold at ?6 -began an action  against the  British  America Corporation, in British Columbia to recover the  difference between $6 and $7.25..- On the  hoaring' before  the" court  of  first  instance there the British America Corporation won, but the holders'of the shares'  sold at $6 haye appealed^ and that appeal " is" still pending.    Now, at a very  . r ���early , date, in, .view^cf ^the; magnitude  ���  ' of- the variousv Canadian  undertakings  and properties of, the' British America  Corporation, the board had already invited   the ��� London _&   Globe,' and   that  company had agreed to co-operate and  to take a one-half intorest in their undertakings.   In these circumstances half  the cost of the shares of the Canadian  Le Roi  company was  charged to  the  London   &   Globe.     Then   the   British  America Corporation,proceeded to form  a company to ^alce- over the mine, all  the shares of whichVthey had bought  and in conjunction with the London ��  ,Globe they regis... ed - the Le Roi Min-  , *   ing Company on the 7th of June, 1898.  ���with a capital of ��1,000,000.    The pur-*  chase price of the property was fixed at  -   ��950,000.   The total cost to'the British  America Corporation and,tho London &  Globe  of Le  Roi  mine  was   ��785,634;  therefore, the profit on the sale to the  now  company was   ��164,315,  and that  profit was equally divided between the  ������British-;-_America���Corporation^and-the-  London & Globe.    Mr. * Macintosh, you  will remember, was the resident director in British Columbia.    He  took "up  some of the options purchased from the  London'-'&-.Globe, and he purchased other  -    options. YEventually the .options taken  up . by  him.Y were ' divided; into   three  groups-���Bast'Le Roi, West lie Roi, and  Columbia Kootenay; Y,They are all olos*?'  together, and the directors of the British Corporation;, egistered "threecompanies,  one called  East\Le Roi  Mining  Company, Limited;;another  called  the  West Le Roi Mining Company, Limited*  and a third called the Columbia Kootenay Mining Company, Limited, to take  over these three groups.    On the East  J_e Roi group the directors, at the timo  the company was formed, had expended  .��77,000; on the West Le Roi group they-  "had expended "��155i00Q',fand on the Co-,  .lumbia Kootenay group  they  had  expended ��62,000, making a total of ��294,-  G65.   The nominal capital of each of the:  three companies formed was  ��500,000,  and the purchase price paid was ��400*,-  000, in, sharesi of each of the: companies.  TSTo part of;the;capital of any one of  ���these  three .companies ; was, issued  to.  -the public, arid none of. them possessed  any working y capital.    All  the  shares  remainedYin the coffers of the London  & Globe. andYthe BritishyAmerica,Corporations,- and the working capital: was  from -time to time provided by the Brit-:  ish America Corporation; .' , ���, '  The immediate effect of the sale **yas  to   convert-'.'. -the'."amoniit y ���expended���  ��� namely, "��294,665���into  shares bearing  a face value of -��1,200,000, showing a  paper profit of��905,334,'half of which,  . was handed to the London & Globe.  By  this means'the London' & Globe and the  British America Corporations were each-  enabled   to   include   in   their  balance  sheets a paper profit of ��452,667.   Between June, 1898, and November, 1899,  ���various..other sums were expended by  ���the British America Corporation upon  these properties.    On-the East Le Roi  group they expended   ��33,000 odd,  on  the  West  Le Roi -group   ��37,000  odd,  and on the Columbia Kootenay group  ��32,000  odd,  making   ��102,000  odd  in.  all,   This amount, was eventually satisfied by 331000 shares in the East Le Roi  Mining Company, 37,000i shares in the  West Le Roi Mining Company, and 32,-  .00._sha.es in the Columbia Kootenay  London Office, 60 Lombard Street, ��1.

Now, some day a question must arise  ���as to how far there was a partnership  .between the London & Globe and the'  British America Corporation.   The London  &  Globe,  throughout the  history  of   the .British   America   Corporation,  seemes to have shared all the gains, but  it has been extremely irregular in sharing expenses, and on no single occasion  has the London & Globe shared in actual  losses.    (A laugh.)    Now, I will leave  British -Columbia for the present, 'and  pass on to the options in the Yukon district.   The mostjmportant option mentioned in, the prospectus related to the  acquisition of the business cf the Alaska  Commercial Company.  When the agents  of the'Britisli America Corporation came  to deal with.,the Alaska   Commercial  Company, the agents of that company  made  such  impossible  conditions * that  the option  entirely fell  through.    The  ���British America-Corporation thereupon  engaged a Mr. Bowker, who had a special knowledge bf the .Yukon,- to' proceed to Klondike with very large pow-,  ers.   He-had-instructions to*'take" over  a store in   Dawson, and to   purchase  stores and a* suitable vessel for river  navigation, the total of such purchases  being limited to ��300,000'.   Mr. Bowker  left England on February 5th, 1898/  On  the 3rd of the following month the board  decided to reduce th'e limit of Mr. Bow-  kor's   expenditure   from    ��300,000   to  ��200,000,  and   on   May  5th-,  1898,  his  power of trading in   the Yukon   was  again limited to the capital 'then at his  command���namely,  ��32,000.

Since'-then -there- has  been* a larger loss in the Yukon.   Now,  to return home.   The general financial  policy > of   the   corporation   has" 'been  throughout under the direction and' control of its managing director, Whitaker  Wright, and--it is important to bear in  mind that Whitaker Wright was also  the managing director of the London &  "Globe and of the' Standard Exploration  Company.- In the early-stages bf this  company's history a considerable part of  the cash at its disposal was lent out at  interest to bankers, but on the 17th of  February, 1898, the, managing director  was authorized to call in all" these loans  and  to place the' same when received  with tho London & Globe on deposit at'  4 per cent interest.    At this time the  London & Globe owed the British America Corporation on loan account ��150,-  000, but in pursuance.of the authority  referred to~ this indebtedness was immediately increased to ��450,000.   E. A.  Hoare, who was then one of the directors,   objected   strongly  to   this,   and  eventually resigned in consequence of  -his objection-���From SeptemberriS98rto~  February,   1899,   large  sums   were   advanced by the British America "Corporation to the London & Globe, and were  repaid on account.   After hearing from  me that the British America Corporation had such,large.debts due to it from  the. London & Globe, you must be won--  dering where 'the necessity for co-operating with the London &-.Globe camein.  At the ���time when, the British America  Corporation resolved to invite the London & Globe to co-operate the'London &  Globe owed the British America" Corporation :�� 400,0^ no. know-how  many .here   were  shareholders   in   the  year 1899, but in that year the British  America -Corporation made up its flrst  balance sheet," and for the first and only  time "at that  period   the. transactions  between the Loridbn & Globe and the  British -America Corporation were in favor of the British America Corporation.  ;The balance sheet showed a net profit  of   ��225,944,- -and- a cash   balance  of  ��266,807.    In October, 1899, the board  resolved to close the books as. on. the  30th of November, and I find these .two"  minutes on the books of the corporation:.. "Resolved, That the purchaseYof  264,110 s International - Nickel . Corporation, Limited, shares'from, the London &  Globe Finance Corporation, Limited, on  the 29th of September/ 1899; at' 18s.; per  share, be and is _iereby 'confirmed. 'Resolved, That the sale of 264'110 shares  in the International Nickel" Corporation,  Limited- to the London &;Globe Finance  Corporation,   Limited,   on . the! 24th > of  November, 1899, at 20s. per share, be  and . is   hereby   confirmed." This   domestic   sale   and   purchase���'(laughter)  :���was apparently, effected by 'Whitaker s  Wright; alone in his capacity_ pfYman-  aging: director of  both the London  &  Globe   and   British- America   Corporations, and the result; was a gift-to the  British 'American Corporation of ��26,-  411.   At the first date .(29th of September, 1899) the account between the two  corporations showed a large balance due  from the. London  &  Globe.    No  payment was, therefore, made by the British  America Corporation, but on the 28th of  November���the date on which the accounts  of the  corporation  were  made  up���the London & Globe paid ��2S3,110  to the British America Corporation in  respect of the shares re-purchased.

You will remember tasked you to keep ih mind the paper profit  created by the formation of the East  Le Roi; the West Le Roi, and the Columbia Kootenay Company.    That paper profit,"amounting to ��452,667, was  included in the-profits of the 'British  America. Corporation, and  they wrote  off ��250,000 of the  ��500,000 originally  paid to the London & Globe for options.  There is no sum of ��500,000 paid for  options mentioned in the report'or bal-,  ance sheet at all;  the only sum mentioned, is ��250,000.'. Of course all moneys paid for options,*were gone; either  the options had been exercised, in which  case they were'represented by properties and included in'the balance sheet  under the head of properties,' or they  had not been exercised, in which case  the options lapsed and were valueless.  The directors seem to have recognized  this, and they wrote off ��250,000.   Then  they had to deal with the balance of  ��250,000, and the directors of the British   America   Corporation   represented  to-the^Lcndon.&v Globe 'that the sum  originally paid for options had been too  heavy,  and  they, also  represented the  partnership which existed between,them.  Inconsequence of that the London &  Globe   Corporation   agree'd   to   return  ��250 000 to the British America Corporation. They could not return the shares  to  the  British  American  Corporation,  because that company,could not hold its  own shares; but they did return shares  in   other    companies���namely,'   195,000  shares in the East Le Roi Mining Company, and 55,000 shares in the Columbia  'Kootenay Mining Compa'ny, making together a nominal amount of ��250,000:  ���As I said* those are the only two occasions.on which the London __ GloGe did  anything*kindly to the British America  Corporation.     Well,   supposing   these  shares had not been handed over, ac-:  cording to my view there' would have  been a loss of ��24,000," instead o'f a profit  of ��225,000, odd.   Eventually,; however  this   surrender   of   ��250,000' worth \ of  shares by the- London & Globe"''to 'the  British America Corporation proved to  be only temporary, for when the London  & Globe were making iip their'accounts  in December last they took the advice  of _their solicitors on the '4th���the-Lon-  don & Globe accounts being made up to  the 5th���and their solicitors, <who had  not been asked about the previous transaction, advised that this transaction was  ultra vires���beyond the powers of the  London & Globe.   Thereupon th'e British America Corporation handed  back  to the London- & Globe the   ��250,000  which they received.    (Laughter.)    Of  course, the question must arise whether  ___e_l_LP_er_cent_dividend_which'-was-paid  in November, 1899, was paid out of capital or not.   I do not" want here to argue  any question of .accountancy;  the'only  point I want to push now is this, that  the ��250,000 was included in the British America;.balance sheet in November  1899,. that that ��250,000 does not now  form part of' the assets of the. British  j America Corporation,   but   does   form  'part of the   assets of the   London &  Globe.    I believe that the first" surrender of shares by the" London v& Globe  to the British America Corporation was  thoroughly bona- fide.   I believe it was  done after a great deal of consultation  and at 'the  urgent request of several  of the directors.   They believed the London & Globe had not treated the British  America Corporation fairly up.to that  point.    But with regard to the second  transaction, I am bound to express ray  opinion that it seems to form a Berics  of efforts to reduce the , liabilities Yand  to increase the assets of the-London &���  Globe at the time of its last balance  sheet on the,5th o��_Dcember._ ,  THE vY COLUMBIAN;   PROPRIETARY;  :������;'��� \xr-.':-,..''��� LIMITED..

The  capital of Le Roi- No. 2 was '��600,000;  the purchase price' was   ��550,000,   the  whole, of which was paid to the British  America Corporation in cash. The cap-*  ital of, the, Rossland   Great   Western  Mines  was   ��500,000,  and   ��450,000  of  purchase money was,paid to the British-  America    Corporation    in ��� cash.   'The  Kootenay Mining Company had a capital  of-��400,000,   and' ��350,000, being-the ���  purchase'price,'was again paid to the  British''America, Corporation in  cash.'  In-each ' case the, parent company re-  , tained a small,amount of property.

'  �� [A REMARKABLE TRANSACTION.'  " X'^0?\ t0  return ] to  the transactions  winch took place in November and December last. At the   beginning of November,   1900,  the-balance-remaining"due  from the London &'Globe to the British  America    Corporation    was    ��941,013.  X.ns was changed by sales of shares in  November and December, 1900, by the  London & Globe to the British America Corporation to an indebtedness by  the British America Coiporation to the  .London & Globe of ��10,173. Thus on the  dato  of  the London  &, Globe balance  shoot (Sth December, 1900)  tho British  America   Corporation   instead   of   being a creditor for ��941,000,- was a debtor to the London & Globe of something  over   ��10,000.   That   might   have  been  a perfectly fair transaction, but let mo  tell you how this indebtedness was repaid.   I  take two  instances  of shares  handed over by the London & Globe to  tho British America Corporation. First  there are 200,000 shares of the -West Lo  Roi Company at par ex div. Now, if that  means any thing, it Mast mean ex tho  , purchase money of the new company,  ���for what had the West Le Roi Company  _at_that_datQ?_As_I-havo-_ust-told^ybuf-  it; had-fivo  undeveloped  claims which  orijriually cost $38,000, to represent its  issuod capital of ��437,000; consequently the London & Globe paid a debt to  the . British) .. America,. Corporation   of  ��200,000 by giving the: British America Corporation something less than a  one-half interest in five claims which  had cost ?,3S,000. -.'("Shame.'.)  Next,. tho  London &. Globe paid a further sum of  �� 145,000 to  the Britislu-America .Corporation   by   handing., over   shares   to  that amount in the Columbia & Kootenay Company ex divY Now,, tho Colum-  Ybia Kootenay  Company  was   liko  the  Wost Lo Roi at that date-it had parted  with practically all its properties; it had  its issued capital of ��432,000, but it had  no; property whatever left, except the  one small claini whioh had cost $10,000;  consequently tho London, &:Globe paid  a debt of. ��145,000 ,by^ giving the British American Corporation something between a third and a half interest in an  undeveloped claim which*had cost ?10,-  000.' Among the shares said to have been  .purchased.by the British-America Corporation on 30th November last were  69,578 Standard' Exploration Company's  shares-at 10s. a shareY'Now, that purchase bt shares stands upon a. perfectly  "different basis to the other' purchases I  have spoken of, the London & Globe did  ]"not; own   those   Standard "^Exploration  ���___���___.___.���___}___     '��   -     '      '-V"'- . vlrVV-?'  ��____.__&__?. __jt __j-j. !Ja r^fe ���^���-^���^ ._>�����> jy _iy Affifo  it.   .Si-"- I ' -     ,.'.*^-i  ~x.  ^0. ,^"^?/^.y>i*?,-ji-Vrf- i  *f '  \^7^i%  -*vv��y_l  OQ2_i_P_A._LT^T - - -,      *  OFFICE: BAKER STREET WEST,* NELS0JI, B.
