ESTABLISHED  1892  FRIDAY MORNING,  SEPTEMBER 27,   1901  DAILY EDITIOJSP  THE CUP WILL NOT BE LIFTED  COLUMBIA OUTSAILS SHAMROCK  IN A LIGHT WIND.  The First Trial Results in No Race,  hut There Is Little Doubt as to  the Final Result.  NEW YORK, September 26���With a  brilliant autumn sun and a piping breeze  the first day of the international yacht  lace opened with every promise of perfect conditions of wind and weather.  After blowing half a gale nearly all  night the northeast breeze subsided a  trifle al sunrise. At S o'clock both Sandy  Hook and the Highlands of Navesink  reported 18 knots. It had swept away  I every vestige of mist or haze and the  Long Island shore was visible from the  Jcisey coast. The sea was quite rough  and a heavy surf was pounding on the  Leach at Sandy Hook. Off the Sandy  Hook lightship, a little fleet of pilot  boats scudded about under reefed mainsails, while two or three tramp steamers bound out lumbered heavily in the  _i_ seas.  On board the challenger and defender  everybody was astir at an early hour.  ''At G o'clook the launch from Columbia's  f tender put some sailors aboard the  ) yacht, and they finished up the work  they had begun yesterday of polishing  off the sidepaint. Shortly after Shamrock's crew was put aboard from the  Porto Rico, and went to work stripping  the protecting j canvas irom the boom  and bowsprit and putting the forward  sails in stops. In the meantime Columbia's crew had gone to-breakfast an_  the boat was jleserted for^about an houi.  On board the'two" tenners all was excitement and preparation. On the Porto  Rico, where the" sailors of Shamrock arc  quartered the men .\ ero hopeful that the  hreez. of early morning would continue.  A 15 to 17 knot breeze was what they  ���wanted. By S o'clock the full crews of  "_���oUi yachts were aboard and every man  was as busy as a bee. By S:10 o'clock  both boats had gotten their jibs* and  staysails���in stops and laid their spin-,  nakers 'ready ��� to< break. The big club.  ( topsails were then made ready and cov-  l,..pvs taken-"off tne*__ain__1Is.'"At'half-pail  [ S everything seemed ready for a start  No change has been made in the principal sails. Shamrock II had the.same  mainsail bent that she used in them  squalls-of Sandy Hook last week) and  Columbia's mainsail was the" same one  she had tried last Saturday oh Long Island sound.  Captain Sycamore walked the deck of  Shamrock   for   about   fifteen -minutes,  anxiously   looking   seaward.     Captain  .Barr  of the Columbia with  his  mate  Miller, did exactly the same thing.'   At  the challenger main truck a brand new  Shamrock flag was flying, while Columbia   flew  only  a   small  wind  pennant.  About 8:30 the crew of the  Columbia  went below and appeared a minute later  wearing clean white working suits and  caps of black and yellow, E. D. Morgan's colors.   The Shamrock's men wore  white navy hats with their white suits.  Sir_ Thomas _Linton   and _ his__guosts  turned out early, and from the quarterdeck of the Erin closely watched the  preparations    on    the    racing    yachts.  Standing with Mr. Jameson and designei  Watson, sir Thomas said:    "That boat,"  with   a gesture  toward   Shamrock, "is  perfectly fit; if she docs not win, it will  not be because --he has not been given  Il .very   attention.".  It    nad    been    sir  * Thomas Lipton's intention to sail in the  race on board Shamrock, but this morning he concluded that his leg, which Is  still lame from a recent fall, would pro-  vent his taking an active part in the  management of the boat, so he remained  on the Erin.   On board Shamrock were  W. Butter  Duncan,   Mr.   Jameson, and  Mr. Ratsey.   When Shamrock was close  to the southwest spit buoy, she sent up  'her mainsail; -.then .the" club-topsail went  iip, anda few. moments later her head-  , stays wereybroken out.    She did not;  however, drop her line to the.tug.Y Columbia ������ sassed the .bar at 9:35, but,did  l_iot break out ;any. sails  Columbia-?was tbe flrst to reach the  [fetarting point at Sandy Hook lightship,  larrivinsthere-at 10:10., No effort-was  Imade to set her. sails-until she was with,  ���in a half mile, of the lightship; but five.

J. The-warning gun was fired-at 10.55.  I.urlng the five minute* preceding the  Jtart the jockeying was intricate^ and  Interesting.' So closely did both boats  Img the line, that; both went over before the starting gun had been fired and  I. ere compelled to turn back. Then, it  sras that captain Sycamore undertook  io wrest from the American skipper the  _l> ��i_        ..  ,.___     shamrock  into Columbia weather. The latter, however, came around quickly and guaged  her movements so well that Shamrock  was forced outside the lightship, and  when the two yachts came around the  line again, Shamrock's sails were seen  to bo flapping under the blanket of Columbia. Once again the British skipper  tried, and once more Columbia met him.  Shamrock essayed to split tacks, but the  Columbia waited just long enough and  then came around, still holding the advantage. The starting gun was fired at  last, and the yachts shot for the line.  As it was reached, it became evident  that tho American skipper had won the  initiative victory. He not only occupied  the weather position, but he had Columbia at the line twelve seconds ahead  of Shamrock.  The start occurred at Sandy Hook  lightship. The preliminary signal was  fired at 10:55, the warning "signal at  11:05, and the start signal at 11:10. Official time of the start was: Shamrock,  11:1.: 01. Columbia 11-10:49. Barr  seemed to have the best of the start but  Shamrock forged well ahead, footing,  much faster than the defender. In the  windward work Shamrock's performance was ceitainly remarkable. The  question was, could Shamrock force the  Columbia about. This was soon answered at 11:29, when Columbia went  about on the starboard tack, slightly under the lee of Shamrock. After the two  boats had gone about, it was noted that  Columbia was pointing higher than  Shamrock, .nd at 11:31 the American  beat seemed to appear more like her old  self. She began to get along faster, and  a minute later it was evident that she'  was to take the lead. Columbia met  Shamrock holding off short on starboard  tacks, the latter having the right-of-  way, as if she could reach Columbia.  Captain Sycamore gave Shamrock a  sharp luff just before reaching Colum-  bic but it was'not sufficient, and the  American boat passed ahead and took,  the lead. ' The boats were then very  close together, and with the exception  of the better position of Columbia, there  was little to choose between them. At  11:42, Columbia tacked on the weather  bow of Shamrock. As the yachts settled  down steadily to work, captain Ban"  more than held t his own, and every  movement of Columbia got all there was  in the wind to give her. While both  boats were on the port tack, just after  crossing the line Shamrock'was given a  hard pull and she moved away in fine  style, giving the impression that' she  was footing faster than the American  boat, ,but in the meanwhile Columbia  had been holding a much higher course  and doing such good work, that when  the racers came out on short tacks, Columbia was found slightly, ahead and  considerably to windward.        .  - ,NB,\yj YORI.,����� September 26.���One;, of  ttidTblggest crowds that-ever put to sea  went down to the Sandy Hook lightship  today to witness sir Thomas "Lipton's  second   challenger,   Shamrock   IL,   and  the white flyer Columbia, which' successfully    defended    the   America's    Cup  against his flist trophy-hunter two years  ago, struggle for the yachting supremacy of i the   world.   But the  excursion  fleet returned disappointed.    The great  single stickers went  out  this  morning  fresh for the battle, but the sea refused  them a   field   of   conflict.     The   wind,  never more than nine and sometimes as  low .as three knots, was too light and  shifty to carry the contestants over the  30-mile course in the time allotted by  the rules. At the end of five and a half  hours���the   prescribed   time���the   race  was   officially   declared   off, and   they  each were towed back to their berths  inside of Sandy Hook.   When the gun  aboard the committee boat was fired to  -call attention-to tho signal declaring-the  race off, the American boat was still  seven miles from the finish line.    The  Englishman was hull down   astern' of  her, the experts estimating her distance  behind Columbia at over three-quarters  of a mile.   Americans have reasons to  congratulate themselves upon the result  of the first trial.   The yacht which carried J. Pierpont Morgan's private signal, a black pennant with a yellow maltose cross, to victory two years ago was  headed but once in the 33 miles covered, and then the Englishman showed  the 'way   for   only   five   minutes.     In  windward work the Columbia beat the  foreigner 7 minutes and 15 seconds.to  the outer mark, and increased her lead  somewhat in the broad reach for home.  While the test was unsatisfactory, the  yachting sharp who" has been skeptical  up to this time as to the ability of Columbia to successfully defend the cup is  more confident tonight that it will be re-,  mr.in on this side of the Atlantic yet  a -while longer. . Certainly ���'������. Columbia',  superiority in light airs appears to have  been  demonstrated  -today.-    Shamrock  did riot, in fact, make so good a showing;  as did Lipton's' first challenger in the  half-dozen flukes that preceeded the actual races two years ago,   What Shamrock may be able to do in heavy weather  is of course problematical; but Columbia  has been tried and all lierYadmirers insist that''-.she' is distinctively ;a yheayy  weather boat.   ; _Y    ; ", ;        ; ;  Two years ago sir Thomas'.prayer  was forwind, but. when he gota:25-knot  o-ale in the last race, Columbia's victory  was even more decisive than in the first.  Since then Columbia's ability in: heavy  weather has been proved, and the harder  it-blows the faster she goes and the better she behaves. It is not strange, therefore, that the patriotic skippers and  spectators who. went down to Sandy  Hook this morning;with misgivings rer  turned tonight reassured and, strongly  disposed to wager.that the pretty wreath  of Shamrock and white heather on the  oldest yacht club in the world, which  sir Thomas is treasuring in the cabin of  his champion, will prove no mascot  after all.  The day had promised well at first. A  strong northeast wind had been blowing for two days and the weather prophets had offered assurance that it would  hold. It had piled up what the sailor-  atter's earlier advantage. ShamrocK j men called a nasty lump of sea outside  e along like a Hash and tried to cut J ami before the rase began was' whipping  the foam off the crest of the waves. The  procession that sailed out of New York  harbor  anticipated  a une  day's  sport.  So numerous were the various kinds of  craft that they seemed to fill the broad  expanse of the ocean between the Long  Island   and   Jersey   shores   as with a  countless fleet. Magnificent and palatial  steam yachts,  steamers and  excursion  boats lined tier above tier with people,,  picnic barges and sailing skiffs gathered  about the old yellow hulk which has for  years furnished a guide for shipping and  from which the start was made.  The  big racers had already been towed out  and when the fleet,arrived they, wer��  circling and' wheeling like great' gulls'  about the lightship. The polished bronze  hull of Shamrock, gleaming and glistening  in the  brilliant sun,. made her  look   like   a   craft of   gold, ^a   yellow  breasted gull with white pinions spreading.   The   white' revenue .cutters   and  yachts of the patrol fleet,"each with the  vertically  striped  revenue flag, at the  fore   peak,   marshalled   the   excursion  fleet behind the line.  ���    Shortly before 11 o'clock a big black  tug flying the*] blue flag' of the regatta  committee puffed up to the fleet, measured   off  the  200   yards   starting  line  from-the lightship, let her anchor go,  and then hoisted the signal "D. E. V.,"  indicating  that   the   course   would   be  east by north 15 miles straight into the  eye of the wind and return. Then another'big tug started off straight out to  Long Island shore   to*   set   the outer  "mark. The log over her taffrail which  measured the distance took no account  of the tide which 'was running out, so  that the distance she covered before the  float was dropped overboard measured  by the bottom of the sea, was probably  nearer 17 than 15 nautical miles. r  Five minutes before 11 o'clock a puff  of smoke burst from the committee  boat. The blue peter went up, and1 the  preparatory signal for the race had been  given. Then began tne jockeying behind the line of' which Charlie Barr,"  the eminent skipper, has 'proved himself so many times a grand master. He  got -into the windward berth and try as  the Englishman would,1 he, could not  shake Him off. As'the red ball which"  marked the warning'signal was hoisted  10 minutes later, the English skipper  m despair put up his'tiller, crossed the<  line and tacked about the lightship, butJ  Columbia hung to him as.it one'tiller  were acting for the two, and when they  again raced for the line it' was like two  thoroughbred horses, neck and" neck,  ,but Barr was still, to' windward. The  fascinating game the'two. skippers were"  fighting was so intense that both .miscalculated the time and crossed the' line  30 seconds before the starting gunfwas  fired.' ' y     _ ,        yr   '", --'     -  ' Three' blasts of the whistle sounded  the t'recall.;/rhe two*, big-canvas < clouded1"  racers were around as if turning" ori'  their heels and coming up again in'the  sni'oke of the gun, fled away across the  line both on the starboard tack,, but  Columbia a half a" length in the lead,  a length to windward. Both carried the  same sails, main club topsail, jib," and  baby jib. Then for ten miles down the  Long Island shore in plain view of the  people there the two big single stickers  smashed into the headseas, sending  spray smoking to their cross trees.  Strain as Shamrock .would she could not  hold her white rival even. Slowly but  surely Columbia forged ahead, pointing  higher and footing faster. Shamrock  tacked and tacked again, but Columbia  went about with her each time and appeared to be more nimble. Time and  again experts saw she was quicker in  stays by ten seconds.  The beat down the Long Island coast  made a beautiful marine spectacle -The  puff of smoke,, her boom was eased oft  and she was away for home on a broad  reach. The fleet courteously waited un-*  til Shamrock irounded 7 minutes and 15  seconds later and gave her a cordial reception. From that time on it was a  procession, not a race. The Englishman  tried half a-dozen head sails in the hope  of improving his position but the American forged ahead steadily. Then the  wind, which' had* been seven knots at  the stake boat, died down, and in an  hour, before the time limit expired it  was evident' that the yachts could' not  finish'in time. -'When the' committee  boat finally hoisted .her signals declaring-"No race," the.big excursion fleet'  headed back for New'York.       '        ���  Only the steam yacht Erin with sir  Thomas and-his party aboard remained  alongside the challenger and escorted  her to her anchorage. Under the rules  of an unfinished,race, the race will"be  resumed on Saturday, - and the course'  will be again 15 miles to windward or  leeward and return. -       !  v LONDON, September 26.���The failure  of the .yachts to cover the course in  time to constitute a race has created  general .disappointment in Great .Britain; but chagrin at the poor showing of  Shamrock overshadows all other expressions of feeling. The great suburban  population of London was kept advised  of the progress of events by pyrotechnics ' at the Alexandria and Crystal  palaces on the north and south sides of  the, city. ^ The London crowds chiefly  gathered on the Embankment watching  the red and green electric lights making'progress'up'the hign tower'on the  Surrey side'!in ,accordance .with' the  varying positions of the yacht's. Steam  launches carrying 'the' same colors" and  patrolling the Thames from London  bridge'to Westminster also served-.to  keep the eager multitude in touch Lwith  the transatlantic"' contest. Thousands  of persons gathered, in front ,of. the  newspaper offices,-while constant bulletins, at the, leading'hotels supplied the  news to" hundreds -o'f others. ', Among  the massesigathered;on the Embankment '_the . keenest /disappointment, was  evinced. ��� Evidently they had expected -  the-challenger to--outdo the defender  under any. conditions. The sporting  clubs announced a' very small-, amount  of- wagers... .King/Edward displayed,  'great'/interest and,;was kept posted as'-  to" every movement of -the yachts.  'LONDON/September 26.���The morning rpapcrs express;the keenest disappointment. The. Daily .Mail, the Daily  Graphic, ,vthe ' Morning. Post", and^ the  Standard all contend "-that the weather  conditions were too'fiuky to justify any  .verdict'on the-ultimate performances,  but' even the same' journals are not very  hopeful ^of. the ability.of the ^challen-  Jger to "lift" _the__cup,.���-and _they admit  that her. performance was* .very-disappointing.' .Tlie other'��� papers -virtually  abandon hope. ,  ��.  PRAIRIE  CAPITAL  VISITED  patrol fleet under the direction of cap  tain Walker of the revenue cutter service maintained a perfectly clear field.  Half a mile of revenue cutters and  yachts at an angle of four points from  each side of the course formed a right  angle, changing direction as the yachts  tacked. In the hollow of this angle,  as if in a fence corner, there was no  more interference with the yachts than  if they had been sailing in the middle  of the Atlantic, while behind the fence  on either side were tho solid moving  lines of hulls, rail to rail, their smoking stacks making a oiack wall above  them. On into the bucking seas the  yachts twent, spurting great geysers  fromy the-> sharp bows. The American  was undoubtedly the prettier boat, Her  skyscraping club topsail was not so  high ,by eight feet as that of her rival,  biilt she appeared more stately and  graceful..' The slender hulls of the racking machines looked, too frail to carry  the canvas that towered above them.  - Oyer 190 feet above the water line, a  height* equal to a modern building, the  slender' topriast: of. Shamrock lifted*a  pyramid' of canvas, but her -833; square  feet more of canvas than the Columbia  carried; did not make, her overtake the  white beautyY Y"������''   Y  It was directly off.Long.Beach-hotel,*'  with its crowded piazzas, that Shamrock  showed in front for the first and only  time during the day. As the -v. ind had  hauled-more to the southward and had.  died-down somewhat, Charlie Barr hugged:Columbia;off shore in the hope of  meeting the:wind; instead he poked his  hose into a dead calm and for some minutes he lay with sails flapping while  Shamrock catching a slant of wind  nearer shore drew rapidly ahead. But  the victory -was short lived. Columbia  rapidly,overtook her adversary. and captain Sycamore in desperation concluded  to press on more canvas by trying a  larger',.', jib topsail. While the sailors'  were out on th-e bowsprit taking in the  old arid bending* on the larger sail, Columbia went by Shamrock as if she had  been moored to the dock. From that  time to the outer mark Columbia gained  steadily.���-..��� As they approached the turning point, the excursion fleet, going at  full speed sided out and massed beyond  the mark to witness the turn. As she  came alongside, leaving the mark on,the  starboard, Barr put his helni hard-down  and luffed around. Then she filed away.",  Her great baloon jib broke out like a  THB   USUAL * RECEPTION   GIVEN  AND CEEEMONIES HELD.  The Duke and Duchess of York Leave  Winnipeg and the Next Stop Will  Be at Begina.  WINNIPEG, September 26.���After  about three weeks of continuous rain,  today was ushered in with bright sunshine and balmy weather, as if for the  purpose of permitting the patriotic citizens of Winnipeg to pay their respects  to their future king and his gentle consort. Sharp on time, the first section of  the royal train arrived at 11 o'clock,  bearing premier Laurier and lady Minto. Just 30 minutes afterwards tfic  booming of cannon announced the arrival of their royal highnesses, the duke  and duchess of York. The lieutenant-  governor and sir Wilfrid Laurier welcomed, the royal couple as they alighted  from their car. Very little time was lost  in starting the royal procession. The  flrst halt was made at the City __all,  where the formal welcome to" Winnipeg  was extended by the mayor, and aldermen. The duke and duchess .descended  from their carriage arid mounted a platform erected in front of the City Hall,  escorted; by mayor Arbuthnot,* -who was  presented by the lieutenant-governor.  When all had taken their places, the  mayor, read the civic'address;'-to which  the duke made a.suitable reply:The AnT  glican; synod and ��� Catholic archbishop  of St. Boniface then presented;their addresses, and tne1 duke replied to each  briefly. Then immediately followed the  presentation of medals to the South African heroes. When this was completed,  the procession reformed and proceeded  to the Government House,'where luncheon was served.  In reply to theYaddresses: the duke  made the following reply: "Gentlemen'  ���Your kind and touching: reference to  the duchess is especially gratifying, and  in her name and on; my own behalf I  wish to acknowledge most sincerely the  hearty greeting and affection and prayers which are expressed in your addresses. .The pleasant associations  which you hope we. shall derive from  our visit will be emphasized by the interesting experience our first acquaintance with the Canadian west,, and by  the memory of today's welcome to its  chief city. . During the long and memorable journey -to. the extreme eastern  *,and from thence to the western limit  of our vast empire, we have seen everywhere many and varied proofs of steady  but certain.progress, material and political; but I doubt whether _n the whole  course of that experience a more striking example is to be found than in the  comparison of the Fort Garry of our  childhood with the Winnipeg ot today.  Then, as you say, a village hamlet in  a solitude broken only by the presence  of the "passing hunter-and fur trader;"  today, the busy center of what has become the great granary of the empire,  the political center of an active and enterprising population in the full-enjoyment of the privileges and institutions  of British citizenship. I rejoice that we  come amongst you at a time when we  can join in the congratulation of your  fellow subjects-in a year-of unprecedented prosperity which-you are enjoying, and we pray that years to come  may show no dimunition of the prosperity or of that energy and determination which characterized the pioneers  and settlers of the province."  .At.3 o'clock in the afternoon the duke  and duchess assisted in the formal opening of the new buildings'of the1 Manitoba university. There was, another  larg'e crowd gathered about the university and the duke and duchess - were  loudly cheered when they drove up and  entered the grounds. They .were presented with an address, and after .the  duke had replied were taken into the  building to sign the register. Three thousand school children marched,on a,great  stand and sang patriotic songs, and a  'cadet company of young Indian boys  gave an exhibition drill. ^Participants  and spectators joined, in the strains of  "God Save the King," when the duke'and  duchess"took their leave._United States  consul Graham was presented to the  duke' by mayor Arbuthnot/ and 'was  given a very'cordial greeting. The. duke  and duchess and the members of their  suite with a number of prominent Canadians were guests at a dinner tonight  at" Government House. '        .    !.

The painting is  a magnificent life-sized portrait of his  majesty,in full   regalia, i1*   a   splendid  work ofi art, dignified, yet easy in pose.  The committee in charge placed the portrait, tastily draped with the union jack,  immediately back of the raised dais on  which their royal highnesses were seated, making a very effective and highly  appropriate background   for   the royal  party.    The painting   was   unveiled as  his royal highness approached the platform, and thousands of cheers saluted  that touching demonstration.  The city wa3 brilliantly illuminated  and during the night there was a torch-  light procession i and an elaborate display of fireworks. The night scenes of  the streets with the lights and decorations and moving crowds were very attractive. Hundreds of men bearing  torches escorted the ducal party to their  train at 10 o'clock and gave a parting  cheer as it pulled out for the west.

He. denied that captain Leblanc, the  pilot," was drunk He'was with him on  the bridge from 7.45 p. m. to 8:15,p. m.  The'steamer ^Farrallon passed, and witness asked if he would blow the--passing  whistle. .The pilot replied,/"Oh, 'no!  she'll .clear." Witness tho\ight the  steamer was going a little close. There  was nothing to give witness, the, impression that the pilot's condition' was  such as to make him reckless* He ceitainly was not under the 'influence of'  ���liquor.   , w��� *-    ,.    y^ > (,  _, The Islander enquiry was 'continued  this afternoon,,with the first officer."of  the'wrecked-steamer still, on. the stand.  He swore that after launching the boats'  on ;the starboard side he called out^to  thcse'he'had placed in them'to stand by,  the' steamer to render assistance,, but'  the passengers refused and allowed the^  ' boats to ��� drift away. The sflrstfvjjpat  'launched *was the only 'onecto' leave the  steamer without a full load. As"far as  he knew,', there was no boat with>��� only  seven- men An it and they,- members^ of  the "crew. 'If'there was such a'boat, it  did not leave the side of the steamer-on  which he was on duty.      ���   �� / .  The second officer, who had been on  the bridge with the pilot, swore that  the pilot-had not been drinking; at least  he could "not notice liquor on him *  The evidence of Jthe bartender was to  the effect that the captain only had one  drink, at the.bar on the night of the accident", 'Two bottles of Scotch whiskey  went to the saloon for a'party of about  a dozen, including the "captain who was  sitting there." He saw the stewards calling the passengers by knocking at their  doors.  TOWN LOTS SOLD AT EHOLT  .-5SI  *     jf, '���*&_  . '"."*��� .-I  ��<*!*.

TORONTO, September 26.���Socialist  leaders have decided in connection with  Did Not Lower His Becord.  PHILADELPHIA, September 26. ���  Cresceus, the king of trotters, today  failed to lower his record of 2.02 1-4  made at Columbus on August 2nd, in  a trial on the Belmont driving park  course. The great son of Robert McGregor stepped the mile in 2.04 1-2, and  reduced the track record of 2.08 3-4,  made by Alix on November 7th, 1894.  It was 4:20 when the horse*made his  appearance for the final effort at record  breaking. After scoring once, Ketchum  gave the starter the nod, and the great  =trottcr���was-offr-paccd-by-a-runner-at-  tached to a sulky. When the first quarter was reached in 30 1-4, everybody  though the record would be broken. The  second quarter ori the straight back  stretch was made in 30 3-4, but the  third was a fraction of a second slower.  Turning into the home stretch, Ketchum urged the trotting machine to his  utmost, but the best he could do was  31 1-2 for the quarter. Mr. Ketchum had  no excuso to offer for the failure to  break the record.  Proposo a Trek to Mexico.  NEW YORK, September 26.���A trek  to Mexico is contemplated by the Boers,  according to a cable dispatch from London to the World, which says that part  of the land is the Foreshale's estate,-a*  concession from the government of Mexico to: certain financiers, one of which  is a member of the house of commons.  The purchase price has been set down  at $7,500,000, which will buy. 20,000,000  acres;' this being the aggregate of two  concessions in the hands of the syndicates. Trie ^smaller of the two estates  comprises 5,000,000 acres. This land has  a seaboard of 200. miles, and will offer  shipping: facilities that were denied to  the Boers in South Africa, and which  they so much desired. Y   ' y '    Y  Have a. Just Grievance.

A financial crisis exists in  Venezuela, owing to the refusal of' the  Bank of Venezuela and the Bank of  Commerce to comply with president  Castro's demand; that they subscribe to  a forced loan.  Six years ago, A. C. Shaw, C E, now of>  Greenwood,  when' exploring  the,..Hope  mountains for a pass for the V* V.^_& E.-'*  railway happened upon a big formation  that appeared to be mineral bearingYHe"^1  took -v specimens, and an assayer after-  awards told lum that the rock contained " ,  a'little nickel. A month sinceJ JY Ed-' '  wards Leckie, M.E., induced Mr. Shaw '  to  go with  him  to  the  locality, ��� and  Leckie there located ,a mineral claim.  Samples have been sent away for examination, but there is as. yet nothing but " ���  the flimsiest foundation for  the story   '  that a-discovery of nickel has been made.  The Tribune's correspondent had a talk-' .  with Mr.  Shaw on the subject on the"  ���'  16th instant, when it was decided that  /"  until assay results were known, there  was nothing to warrant the assumption  that  the rock  contained  nickel.  It is  hoped that it will be found to do so,  J)Ut_ln_.th-_meantime-no-corresponden-!=-!:i--  with  regard for the reliability of his  news will jump at the conclusion that  it was nickei bearing.  The Situation at .Rossland  ROSSLAND, September 26.���[Special  to The Tribune.]���The recent jump in  Center Star stock, which is now firm *  around 50 cents, although the mine is  now closed down without any immediate  prospects of work being resumed, has  caused a good deal of comment. It Is  stated that director Frecheville went  to Montreal after landing in New York  last week, and that the forward movement of the stock commenced on his  reaching Montreal. In any case, there  is a strong probability that a deal of  some'sort, for'the control of the proporty is under-way, otherwise, tho shares  would not have moved up so rapidly,  under existing circumstances.  Edward Williams, the deportation  commissioner sent here by the Dominion government to c.foice the Alien  Labor Act,,arrived in town last night.  He has been busy all day making inquiries into the local situation, but declined-to make an> statement for publication this; afternoon.  Henry Bratnober is in Spokane today,  but is: expected here again tomorrow,  and Frecheville's advent may happen,  at any. moment, though he is expected  to reach here about Sunday.  Except as mentioned the strike situation remained unchanged today.  3. aid the Penalty for Murder.

Nelson, B. C.  If the "Vancouver Province would only  print a date on its first page, its exchanges could give it proper credit v. hen  they scissored from its columns. In-the  last issue that reached Nelson, the Province says: ."It is considered extreme-  " ly probable that the portfolio of labor,  " which is now held by Hon. Mr. Mu-  " lock in conjunction with that of post-  " master-general, will be offered'to Mr.  " Ralph   Smith,   M.P.,   for   Vancouver,  " the acknowledged leader of union labor  " in Canada. The new department was  " created last year, and has already be-  " come extremely valuable." The elevation of Ralph Smith to a cabinet position would bring down on his head the  ire of every labor leader in Eastern Canada, for they are extremely jealous of  the standing of the man from British  Columbia. .Were senator Templeman in  the house, the position should eo to him.

The New Westminster Columbia says  the government should not do anything  other than routine business until the  legislature meets, as if the gevernment  had been doing even routine work since  the legislature adjourned."lt is just this  neglect of routine work that'has made  the people who have had dealings with  the government distrustful of the whole  lot. j No one of the ministers, .with the  single exception of -Mr. <t Turner, ever  made an effort to do any work; they left  everything to their .subordinates, and  their subordinates wouid not take any  responsibility. The result is, that all the  ministers are discredited. The fault lies  with the head of the government. He neglected his duties as premier to attend  to his duties asr the head of the Dunsmuir coal companies. Were he to reverse  the order, and give.his'personal attention ,to his duties as premier, and leave  the management of his coal companies  if t.     . /  $0  entirely to his subordinates," he would  find his business in six months in .pretty  much the same condition! as the business  of the province is��� today.- James Duns-  ,muir owes as grea"_ a. duty- to the people  as he does to himself. He1 accepted political responsibilities,-and-,he should  not shirk the duties'the'responsibilities  impose. One of his duties is to see that  the business of Uhe province is conducted carefully and economically, and  in order that this result is" obtained, he  imust have-subordinates of capacity." He  %as Wells and Prentice and Eberts left.  ���The. twj. former are lacking in .capacity,  'and the*latter is lacking in everything  except capacity. . If premier 'Dunsmuif  did his duty he'would use'a new broom  in the, parliament buildings,r and ,use  it at once. .'_'.'        r..  '".    ' "Lead, Kindly Light.".    ,   .

S. .Foster,  ex-M.   P.  for  Suffolk,  England,   believes at the present time  public opinion is changing in England,  ; and that the Old Country must soon protect   her' own ��� interests    against- ���the  United  States,  German and other for-,  eign powers. The products of the .United  States, he said, should not be admitted  .to   the   English   market   on  the  same  terms as those from Canada. Cobden, he  added, made a mistake in supposing that  free trade was a divine institution. The  people  of England are now anxiously  awaiting the. close of the war, and it  v. ould not be surprising if more drastic  measures were now taken by the military  authorities  since  the  limit  mentioned in lord Kitchener's proclamation  had expired. The masses of the people  are solidly behind the government's war  policy and Mr. Chamberlain has the support of his leaders, his party and the entire British electorate.  /l\   v   We   have   just .received  a large  yk stock of Childrens', Misses' and Ladies'  w{ool shirts, vests and drawers in all  sizes and qualities..; Childrens' and  Ladies' wool combination suits, which  _ 0  9)  we are offering at specially low ppicejs. m  Ladies'   and    Childrens'   Mantles, /��  Jackets, Capes, etc.   Latest up-to-date m  styles.

John George Milburn, in whose home  president McKinley died at Buffalo, has  for twenty years been known as one of  the ablest lawyers in the western part  ' of New York state. He was born in the  North   of  England  50  years  ago,  and  started in life as a mechanical engineer.  But the work was not to his taste, and  when he came to America, in 1869, he  soon round an opportunity to study law  in tbe office ot Wake*___�� & Watson. _-_.  Batavia, New York. In 1873, after four  years of preparation,' he passed the bar  examination, but was not permitted to  practice because it was found, that he  had not been In the country long enough  to gain citizenship. His case was taken  up by a number of influential men ot  New York, and a bill was introduced in  the legislature to waive his alienage  and give him the privilege of full citizenship. The introduction of the bill  aroused intense opposition, and after a  protracted storm of anti-British oratory  in the senate, the measure was passed,  and became chapter 7 of the laws of  1874.       -    .  -  Porto Rico Lumber Go.

Quiet, controlled faces were full  of well-bred composure, but eager, nervous hands showed that the 'stake was  '������ large. In the park more than a thousand peasants from the baron's different  ,cstates, wearing,the costumes which distinguished their places, feasted where  an ox and sheep and pigs were roasted  whole for them, or danced Russian  dances, m which the grandees sometimes joined. '  Among the guests in the palace were  the grand dukes Constantine and Valdi-  mir, and the Naashednix, the present  czar's father. They represented the  emperor and empress, and were accompanied by aides-de-camp.  The hostess gave thirteen dancing  pai ties within two weeks, the ladiesb  sometimes changed ' their dresses five  -times in one evening, in compliment to  the diceient parts of Russia repie&ented  among them.

No more coffee in the ro-,  mantic regions of the lake for that season, at least, and the wearv servants'  were quite ready to set my image, up as  an icon, at the earliest opportunity.  In a bright, pleasant room the  princess always kept twelve girls engaged in most delicate embroidery. One  thought of Penelope and her maidens,  as they sang sweet Russian songs and  plied their swift needles. But this Penelope did not work with them, but wore  their dainty stitches on her own apparel, which was of such exquisite fineness that she could draw one of her  linen garments through her wedding  ring. They were busy, too, upon the  trousseau of Vava, winch had been in  progress since her birth or,.baptism.. ;;  The summer palace of the.G .. swas;  about thirty versts from the town house,.  and much finer and larger. Bach mem-1  her of the family had here a suit of  five rooms. Large drays could drive directly through, the wine cellars under  the house. The gardens had the beauty  of a dreaih, with little Greek temples  here and there, and an artificial. lake,  with cascades* amid greenery, made by  a succession of steps. There were fujlyj  five,versts, of flowersY cared for'by  thirty such pretty Bussian peasant girls,  wearing bright kerchiefs on their heads,  and their beautiful' blonde hair in 'a  Gretchen braid often reaching the  knees. The simple crash dress, made  like a chemise, showed such unconscious  grace and beauty, even in- their bare"  feet.  A pretty and unique summer dining'  hall in the park' had white marble walls,  arranged the, whole length with nitches,  in which grew delicate ferns luxuriantly, giving out a faint thymy sweetness. Branches of overhanging trees,  interlaced with festoons*of living vines,  made" the ceiling, and cast loving, flickering shadows on the tiled floor of cool  .green and white. Plashing, jeweled,  limpid water of fountains added to the  delicious coolness, and freshened the-  leaves of lilies in their clear, trembling  depths. The loveliest room in the summer palace was copied in pink and white  mai hie/ from one m the Alhambra���a  fountain "of perfumed water in the center, and soft silken cushions all about it.  The twenty-first birthday of Sergius,  the oldest son, saw Russian festivity at  its height. ^ Two hundred thousand Japanese lanterns'made a fairyland of park  and gardens.1 The glass-covered orang-"  ery was cleared for dancing.' A large  hall was-arranged ,for theatricals. The  green-baize tables'glittered'with gold,  and had always their eager'devotees. <  " .The fete is like a splendid, bewildering dream in. my. memory; everywhere  the bonny heir,- with His manly grace,-  the hero of the hour. I,like to think of  lum in his picturesque hunting coi-  tume, something 'like*the old Norser  'dress; "broad-brimmed hat with long  plume many-butto'ned ' waistcoat, -and  dark green doublet, 'the high-toppe'd  boots rolled over jauntily, and not quite,  reaching the iull breeches.

The case of Paul Nipou vs. the Jenckes  Machine Company will come to trial  at the approaching session of the county  court. This is an action in which the  Nelson laundry man is suing the  Jenckes Machine Company for damages,  resulting, as the plaintiff claims, in the  action of the defendant in supplying a  second-hand engine in the place of a  first-class engine as ordered.-  The familiar case of Genelle'vs. Fox  has been settled. This case has been in  the court since 1899, and was originally  an action for a lumber bill in "which the  plaintiff secured a judgment for $400.  As an offset to this Pox put in a counter  claim, and as the result of the settlement arrived at yesterday Fox not only  got rid of the judgment of $400, but secured ��150 on his counter claim, as well  as costs which were taxed at $135. The  terms of the settlement,'while in the nature of a compromise, are very much  in favor of the defendant Fox.  - /-Now is your time to get  must dispose of them all this month  a bargain  in   these 'lines  If you , want.,  ���'both, of-"these, lines the price won't hinder .you.  as  one  we  or  Edward McGregor, the* city pound-  keaper, came across a couple-of'Chinamen who were violating the city bylaw,  which prohibits the carrying of swill  through the streets of the city.'He at-  ' tempted to bring .the'Chinamen to the  city hall for the purpose of securing  their attendance in the police court,"but  one of the Chinamen gave( him the slip  and the other put up so good a defense'  that it was necessary to call the police  to the assistance 'of the poundkeeper.'  The Chinamen afterwards professed ig-  '.norance of the by-law and were allowed  .their liberty with a .warning.  , The Stewart .-Brothers,"owners of the  .property which was supposed to belong  to the Noonday-Curly Mining Company,  have another*-lawsuit on their hands  which will come up at the approaching  session of the county court, This is in  ���the nature of an action .to enforce a  mechanic's lien which has been ' filed  against the Noonday-Curly property by  a numher of men who were employed on  the property on' development. The plaintiffs in the case are Ed Smith, Charles  Fihdlay, Alfred Thompson, Donald McDonald, Ed Andreen, William' Thompson,' Thomas Carley and Archie Mc-  Donpjd. and the total amount of their  claims fer V. ftges is $1540.75.  Plate  group   of  fourteen   claims.   This  property was secured some three years  ago by an American syndicate, the head  of which was generally conceded to be  the  late  Marcus  Daly.   The  owners  of  the property have been represented by  M.  K.  Rogers,  and  since the property  has been acquired it is said that over  a quarter of a million dollars have been  expended in its development. Just what  the owners of the property have is more  or less, a mystery, but common report  has it that they have a large body of  ore which will yield very large values  in gold. The ledge, which is said to be  40- feet wide, has been tapped at a depth  of 800 feet and considerable drifting on  the vein at this depth has been done.  The ledge carries arsenical iron in which  there are remarkably high gold values.  In the course of development considerable quantities of ore have been sacked  and are now ready for shipment, which  it is said will run high in gold values.  The outlet for this company is via Penticton,   and   to   facilitate  shipments  a  wagon road   has  been  built  from the  mine   to   Penticton,   a   distance   of  26  miles.  This road is said to have cost  $16,000,   of  which   the  owners   of  the  Nickel   Plate "contributed   $10,000.   The  Nickel  Plate, ��� however,  is  but one of  other   properties   that   are   undergoing  development in the immediate vicinity  of Carnegie. In the, Uniman camp, five  miles from the' townsite, W. H. Bullock-  Webster of this city has a crew of men  at work. He is reported to have large  bodies of copper and magnetite carrying free gold. Work is also being performed on Pearson mountain, Red mountain, and Rierdon mountain," all of which  are tributary to the Carnegie townsite.  Mr. Meikeljohn says that the townsite  will be a sure winner if the surrounding  district turns out anything like it promises to. He says it is a,big district and  although  very  little  has  beeen  heard  concerning it the people who have done  the most work.in it appear to be the  best,satisfied.  NELSON, B.C.
