The Boasted Starting Up bf the Le  Roi Mine With a Full Crew  a Failure.  ROSSLAND, September 23.���[Special  to The Tribune.]���The Le Roi whistle  was not blown any this morning or at  noon today. Some of the aliens working  in the Josie weie brougut over to the Le  Roi, and weie induced to sign applications for work, and these are to be par-  - aded to the public as new men applying  , for work. The union men say that the  0 only union men who responded to the  call this morning were Frank French,  who was promised a position as foreman  > at the Le Roi, conditional upon his inducing the former employees to come  to work, and Amos Lee, a union man,  who has been in the employ of the com-  i pany for some time. The only other  Rossland man applying" was "Doc" Johnson, who has been employed as shift  boss. - i  The  manifesto   to   the   smeltermen's  union   which   appeared   in   yesterday's  Miner signed .by Bela Kadish and Henry  Bratnober,   but  not   by   Bernard;  McDonald, has called out much local comment, the omission of the Le Roi manager's name and the insertion of Brat-  nober/s, who is not a director or an ^'official of either the Le Roi Mining Company or of the smelter, company, being  th'e chief point noted. Possibly the Rossland .Miner, may account tomorrow 'for  -, the omission of McDonald's" name,   i .  - ' The Nelson rifle team  defeated  the  j1'home rifle team today by a score of G25  " ; to cos.   *      "���     r. ^ * '  E. *H.

September 23. ���  Rear-admiral Sampson has requested  the navy department to relieve him of  his -present duty' as commandant of the  iJostonynavy yard on October 1st, on ac-  OTTAWA, September 23.���The duke  and duchess of [York spent today on the  Ottawa .river _and in*- uie forest lining,  its banks, and weie given a complete  exhibition of lumberm .n's life with all  its picturesqueness. They shot the timber slides on a raft, lunched in a lumberman's shanty, and enjoyed a day's  outing that was a novelty to them. The  loyal party were brought in from Rideau HaU on a special built electric car  and boarded the rafts at Regan street.  There wei'e six rafts, each manned by  half a dozen rivermen in red shirts and  blue jeans, and from the one assigned  to the duke and duchess flowed the royal standard. Beside the members of the  royal paity, the --' governor-general and  ^ho countess of Minto, premier and lady  Laurier, representatives of the lumbermen, and the newspaper correspondents  travelling with, the royal" pai ty, were  the only ones to make tne trip. The rafts  wore floated down the^ stream, and'then'  in succession sent.wheeling through the  slides, dropping 45 feet in a quarter of,  a mile. Every bridge-spanning the river  was crowded, and the banks were lined  with "people, who cheered--wildly as-.the  _royal couple floated ���"* quickly past*-' on  "their exhilerating* trip.: Scores^, of river  craft of' every' kind waited below the  slides, aud there was a repetition of the  cheering.. The cribs were quickly collected and the passengers .taken off in  birch bark canoes. .The. whole .flotilla  proceeded1 down the "river to Rockhffe,  Point. A landing was made at the clubhouse ot the Ottawa Canoe Club, from'  the veranda ot which the duke and duchess witnessed the aquatic .sports.--    ,  The lumbermen' first gave an exhibition" of'their, skill mThandling logs m  * tne water" and then a,series of, log rolling contests in which the - losing man  Awas    invariabLy/j; ducked, < _ fTbe^-Viver  i,"sports 'closeif, w_th"'a_r exciting.-race' of  war canoes.   Seven crews competed and  theie were 15 men in each canoe.   Tne  pace was very  fast  with   a -desperate  spurt   at   the  '- finish.       The ' Grand  Trunk Boating Club of Montreal won,  tne Britianmas of Ottawa finished secondhand the Ottawas third.   The duke  and duchess were then escorted to* Rockhffe   park, where   in   the   midst of a  heavy growth of hemlock and spruce a  model   lumberman's   shanty   had been  thrown up.    Fifty   red-shirted   woodsmen lined up to receive them and they  were shown at once to the shantv.   A  great open fire burned in the middle oi  'the log-walled house, and .the  smiling,  , cook announced that dinner was ready.  He offered steaming pork and beans and  other staples of bush life, and the duke  and duchess sampled each.   A large tent  stood next to the shanty and was stocked with the fare of civilization and hero  the entire party lunched.   Atter lunch,  the lumbermen gave an exnibition   ot  _thelr_ woodwork rhoy-attacked-a^great-  tree with their axes, felled it,' sawed it  ,into lengths, and'piled it on a sleigh.  After that they danced on a rough platform to the scraping of a violin in the  hands of one of their number, and sang  the songs of the old voyageurs. When  they finished they gathered together and  here the duke thanked them. He said:  "The duchess and I thank you very  much. We have seen many interesting  things on our way around the world,  but none more interesting than this."  William Whistle, the French Canadian foreman of the camp, replied to the  duke and his speech, strongly marked  by'the dialect of his lace, was highly  amusing. It dealt with his own woes and  debts .and. the duke and duchess .who  faced could not restrain their laughter.  The duke and duchess returned to* Rideau Hall on the special, electric. car.  Late in the afternoon, a delegation representing the ladies of Ottawa called at  Rideau Hall and presented the duchess  with a mink cape, Lady Laurier made  the presentation, and the duchess in reply expressed her ;appreciation" arid  thanks.  The reception given by the duke, and  duchess of Cornwall in the senate.chamber tonight was "the most brilliant so-'  cial affair of the Canadian tour. All the  local troops were massed in Parliament  Square, and the entire group of buildings  was brilliantly-lighted, ,as: were all the  streets in the center of the capital. The  square and streets were 'crowded witn*  people '*;���) anxious ��� for a .glimpse.Yat the  guests.. The senate chamber was splendidly decorated. The duke and duchess  stood upon the speaker's throne, 'and  before theinstood the members .of:;the  former's staff in uniform and the local  oflicers. Aides-de-camp received ithe  guests and escorted them to the throne  for presentation, calling their riames as  they appeared before the royal couple.

He entered   a 'plea of guilty,  "which was susequently changed to ,not  guilty by direction of "the"' court.   .The  court convened" at 10 o'clock', and within  two hours eight jurors had b'een'secured.  .1 echnicalities were not raised by the examining counsel, but it'was significant  that every man who said-he'had formed  an opinion on the case was excused by  the district attorney.   Those who ac-1  * knowledged that they, had ' formed an  opinion, or stated that they were prejudiced, but admitted .that, their "opinion  could he changed by evidence, .were accepted by each side., Justice Trueman  -C. White, one of the oldest and most experienced of the supreme court' judges  was, on the bench. -   ,       ', -.  _, Immediately after the opening of the  court and after the prisoner had pleaded,  Lorn L. Lewis, senior-*counsel' for the  defense, announced ��� that, together with  his colleagues, Robert C.,Titus and Carleton E. Ladd, they were ready to act in  behalf of the prisoner?''   "I   thought i,  best,"--he said, "for my colleagues' and*  myself, that I,should say.something regarding, our presence.here as.attorneysr  for the defendant.  At the time my name'  'was suggested I was out of the'city and  knew, nothing of what was "transpiring  "here with reference to the',selection of  counsel for the defendant.%* When the  circumstances of my selection-were told  ;to .me,, I was extremely reluctant to accept:' 'But the duty had been*- imposed,  'andfl considered it my duty iri the light  of> all' the circumstances ��to defend this,  man.   I  The prisoner, Czolgosz, during the  morning evidenced no interest whatever  in the proceedings, but as tho testimony  was being introduced he paid more attention tp what was being said and  looked at the Various witnesses closely. The probable duration of the trial,  It is believed, can be placed at two full  days. When district attorney Penney  was asked by justice White at noon as  to the time he would take in the presentation of his case, he declared that  he would conclude by Tuesday noon.  Judge Titus for the defense, was noncommittal, however, and merely replied, "That depends upon the turn  things take."  It is not probable that any defense  will be put in, owing to the character  of the prisoner and his refusal to "help  "his attorneys'in any "way to procure  evidence which-they could use, in "his  favor. The idea of an attempt to enter  the question of hisisanity is not thought'  of, in view of the reports of the two  specialists who have recently examined  him, and there is ground for,the belief, that the trial 'will be concluded  with a session of but one day or more.

The work of securing the jury was  then undertaken with a celerity that was  amazing.' Before the day was over the  entire panel had been sworn; the jurors  had listened to a* description of the Temple of Music where the crime occurred;  "had seen' photographs of the interior  of that structure, and had been told by  three surgeons- what had caused the  death of the president and the effect of  the assassin's shot upon the various  organs of tbe body. They had also  learned why the fatal bullet had not  ueen located.  The presentation of the state's case  began shortly before 3 o'clock, when assistant district ��� attorney Miller began  -wIth~much-r=deliberatiori-to"Ha"ddr*_ss~the  jury. He spoke very briefly. "Wc shall  show," said he "that for some days prior  to the'shooting this defendant had premeditated the shooting of the president. He knew that on the sixth of September the president would receive the  people in -the Temple of Music; that on  that day he went to the exposition, got  into line with the people and appioach-  ed the president; that he hau a weapon  concealed in his hand, and as the president extended his hand in kindly greeting, he fired the fatal shot. He fired two  shots, in lact. One of them took effect  in the abdomen and caused the mortal  wound which caused the president's  VUeath. That, in brief, is the story we  shall show you. Witnesses will tell you  this story, and 1 am sure that when you  have heard the evidence you will have  no difficulty in reaching a verdict of  murder In the first degree."  The first witness, Samuel J. Fields,  chief engineer of the Pan-American exposition, described the ground floor  plan of the Temple of Music, and he was  followed by Percy A. Bliss, a photographer, who presented views of the interior of the building. The remainder of  the afternoon was taken up 'with the  testiihony of three, physicians, two of  whoiri had attended the. president during, his last hours, -whiteYthe' other performed the autopsy.     ..-Y  The latter, Dr. Harvey R. Gaylord,  was.the first of the three to be called.  He described the Ucation of the  wounds: in the stomach and;: the direc-.  tion of the bullet. The cause of death  was attributed to the gunshot wound;  but, fundamentally, he said, it was due  to the changes back of the stomach, in  the pancreas. caused by the "breaking  down" of the material of the pancreas  as a result of the passage of the bullet.  Dr. Herman Mynter iollowed, and his  testimony was of importance, in as'much  as it brought out the tact that the reason why the fatal bullet had not been  located at; the autopsy, was because of  the unwillingnes of the president's relatives to have the body further mutilated by their instruments.  Dr. Mynter and Dr. Mann, who followed both testified that the primary  cause of death was the gunshot wound  in the stomach. One effect of this  wound was, they said, to cause the gangrene to form in the pancreas, and the  spot of poisoned tissue was as large as  a silver dollar.  "  For Foreman Hamills Death  James'McGregor, provincial inspector  of mines, returned from" Erie ^on, Sunday evening where he has b'een.enquir-  ing  into  the  circumstances  connected  with*, the death ,bf rRobert'.H. Hamill,  foreman at the Arlington mine, .who-was  'killed by a fall*of roclc'in the^.450 foot  level'of the'Arlington on Tuesday last.  A personal inspection of ���< the - scene of  the'accident was sufficient ���to, explain  'to the inspector just how the'accident  happened.-It was  due  to' one^of' the  "slips that are met with -so 'frequently  in.mining, the rock that fell havingf been  loosened by-the blasting ^of the'(evening previous to the accidentV "'*���''f **-"'-/ .  7 The accident happened, in the '450 foot  level about 25 feet'south:of the -laddeW  rway-from the No. 5 tunnel, and although  several' of' the" ininers ..were within ,>a  few ,'feet fiom 'the place,"where])It occurred, none of them actually witnessed  it. Bert 'Porter, the miner who 'was .so  severely  injured  with  Hamill.-^is^still  in the* hospital at Ymir,' and -unable to  talk," so  that  the   circumstances   connected with the accident are still) a ma|-  .terYof deductiori.JtJs^Knogrn,- hbwexpr,,  ,tha"t 5he7'foremanrand Porter "Were" ex-'  arriining the roof of a new stope which  was 'just being opened up. .The- foreman1  was'^standing upon a small  ladder in1  the act of examining the roof when the  rock fell. He had-* his uack .to the ladder and was facing the mass of rock  that slipped.  Porter at this time was  standing three or four feet away. The'  rock came without any -warning whatever. All told; there was between two.  and three stons of rock that came down.  One piece, weighing'about 350 pounds,  struck Hamill' about.the lower portion  of.the body. It inflicted fatal internal  injuries in the region of the stomach  and fell with sufficient weight to break  both of the thigh bones, and carried the  ladder with Hamill pn it to the ground.  A smaller' piece of rock struck Porter  on the head, knocking him down as well.  The smaller pieces of rock that followed  down from the slip burled the two men.  The roof of the stope where the accident  happened  is  between   12  and   14  feet from the Jlop_r._and_the_rock_that  fell was in the immediate vicinity of ore  that was being stoped and was ground  that required to be brought down rather  than be held up by timbers. The accident was evidently due to one of the  most common dangers of mining which  men employed underground have to face  from time to  time In entering stopes  after blasting, and was not due to carelessness on the part of anyone.  Bert Porter, who was with Hamill  when he received his injuries, is now In  tho Ymir hospital and is said to be out  of all danger. With the exception of his  skull it is said that nearly every bone  in his face has been fractured, and for  a timo physicians feared that ho would  have brain troubles as a result ot the  crushing of his head, but this is no  longer feared.

Chief among the' men  in office that can be safely p.aced in tliis  class is the member from Rossland. He  came to the province hungry from Manitoba. ' If he has anything to_ay it' is  interests in coal lands 'and mineral  claims ** of a speculative value. How  these*Interests were acquired is not"a  question'for The/Tribune to" discuss. Bat  it is the duty of a 'newspaper to expose  the methods of public men who seek  to enrich themselves through the 'expenditure'of public money. How many'  acres of coal lands''ahd how many shares  in mining companies has Smith Curtis  acquired since coming to theprovince  by actual purchase? How many'acres  and how many shares has he acquired  simply because he is' Smith Curtis, M.  P. P.'! What is the present value of the  acre_* and shares he holds' both by pur-1  chaSe and by reason of his' being an M.P.  P.? What will be tlie value of these  acres and shares once the much talke>.  ot Coast to Kootenay railway is built?  The difference in value'may T_e the real  reason why the member for RoSsland is  so anxious to spend millions of the people's money in building the Coast to  Kootenay --railway. Surely a working-  man's friend, as Smith Cm tis is said to  be, would not be guilty of robbing them  as taxpayers in order to enrich himselt  as a vendor of coal lands and shares in  an undeveloped copper mine.

The same issue'of a'Ne'w York paper  which tells about the last hours bf'the  assassinated president 'tells also of tho  finding of a woman and her three children starving to death'in the city'of millionaires. It tells'also of a middle-aged  man" staggering into "a police station)  exhausted'from lack ,of food,'tto ask for  a meal. It is quite possible that William  McKinley In dying, as "in living, has  served his country well. The American  nation has long been known for its complete self-satisfaction. The average citizen* of the United States thinks there  is no country like his1" under the sun,  no nation so mighty, no people so talented, so utterly omnipotent. This complacency has undoubtedly moulded the  nation's legislation.' Legislators who are  optimists in the superlative degree cannot be expected to devote much time to  remedying defects 'and abuses' which  they prefer to believe do not exist. William ^McKinley will not have died in vain  if his dying will serve to draw the attention of the republic's statesmen to  the fact that in some respects the republic is ill-governed; that its magnificent  resources are not administered for the  benefit of the many but ara too often expended for the aggrandizement of the  few; and that, dsplte their country's  boundless wealth, there are many of its  inhabitants whom hard conditions of  li_;e, remediable conditions, have driven  well nigh desperate. It takes an alarm  clock to awaken some people. It sometimes takes an earthquake, a revolution;  or some great tragedy like the assassination of president McKinley to awaken a  m  *  Hi  Hi  Hi,  Hi  Hi'  Hi  *.  *_���*  fe-  Hi  Hi  th  Hi  Hi  Hi  Hi  Hi  tii  Hi  -   .

The Toronto Star, referring to an expected   visit  from the  Kansas  saloon-  smasher, says: t'  -  Mrs. Carrie Nation will -arrive in Toronto this evening  ahout  7:15, 'having  _ lett Ottawa this morning on the' regular  C. P. R   train fiom the capitol.    The  ' tavern-sma'sher,   or   rather her  agents,  have arranged'"for her a   visit  to  this  city.   Like every  other   attraction  "on  the road," Carrie has her agents traveling in advance'.   These agents, it is said,  enter into nego.iations with certain of  the hotelkeepers of the city about to be  descended upon, and make all the necessary, arrangements for the .coming show.  Ihese airangements  include a^ procession, minstrel show fashion,'through the  principal streets.    In this procession the  lady appears, carrying her bag, and over  her shoulder swings an ominous" hatchet.  By way of a diversion, a stop in the  parade is sometimes made for the purpose of allowing the" iady   to   make a  call at   some   haidwaie   stoie .to purchase the hatchet, the idea''being  that  the smasher has spied an hotel on her  paiade through the streets   which   she  has   decided > ought   to be   demolished.  The   procession   then   wends -itsr*'way  back to the'hotel previously, selected by  the agents, who, ot comse, act as escorts,  and   then   the   fun   commences. .. The  "smasher.',boldly enters the^salopn anel  proceeds" to caVry onC her programme  ""This includes the smashing ot a s__>ali  mirror arid a fe,. botfles.

The police hei c*displayr no unusual signs ot excitement over theYoQ-  stiepeious lady's promised .visit/ but  they intimate that she must behave hoi-  soit it she wishes to i_ee_* out of trouble  "I would ticat her the same* as a_*._-\  oidmary disoiderly character, as far as  I am concerned," said inspector Archibald, who is acting as deputy chief of  police, this morning.  "1 don't believe in mob law of any  kind. It may be excusable in some  cases, but I,don't believe in it myseii,  and that is what Mis Nation personi-  hes. If Mrs. Nation comes here," ne  concluded, "and starts-to make a di_-  tmbance, why, we'll just lock her up.'  "Ceitamlyk we can't interfere wi.h  Mrs Nation'if she comes here like an  oidinary person," said detective-sei-  30_tnt Reburn.

When  in his tantrums' the chief was a verita-  i. .     -        . i    . _ .  ble Nero,pf_the,north,iand,he was feared  and hated by-all: 5 In a wild fit of lage  about a year ago'.hejnurclered'his father-  in-law and threatened*'"tb exterminate  his whole family. -Not a member of the  tribe dared to interfere with him while  rhe put his wife's father to a horrible  death, flrst tearing out his tongue and  cutting" off his ears and'then sending a  tomahawk crashing,thiough his skulh !  Chief David,'after his crime, became  gloomy g,nd 'morose,. tor - an avenging  Nemesis seemed to be following him!  His^wife flrst'became'sick/and, notwithstanding the treatment of a famous medf-'  lcine mart fron_Ya' distant/tribe,' Siedjin  'great agony, cursing her 'husijan_l"wit_i  her last bre'ath. -s Following* closely upon  the death of his wife' came the sickness  -of his four children. -* They,*- too, died1 of  a. most mysterious ailment.1, .   _jr!-  About a year'ago the member's of tlie  tribe decided that the Great. Spirit, ..was  angry with chief David for his crimes!  ���'and that'if he 'remained1' among  them  ,they, too, (would b�� visited with sickness  and death.   If(was decided tb expel luni  .from the tribe, -and givingvhim several  rblankets "and skins he was'exiled to a1  lonely---spot, situated -..about ���'thre'e. miles'  from the Indian encampment., Here the1  -once'powerfiil chieftain.Ied.an existence),  which in time drove him half crazy. ^No'  member' of "the tribe* was permitted to  speak to him,- but he _ was   frequently  seen wandering through  the  woods  in<  search of game. -    *_'-*>'     |  About a month and a half ago David  was seen to take his 'canoe and' stait  out for a small rocky^ island in God's  Lake, about a mile from shore, /sit was.  thought that 'he' was Agoing to* '-gather!  gulls' eggs, and. when, he did (not reap-!  pear in several 'days'" time, nothing ,was  thought of it. "When, however,.a *-wee__'  passed by and the late chief was not  seen around, his accustomed -haunts,- a1  .search for him was instituted. No tiace'  of the missing man could be found. No,  vone apparently thought of looking on  the rocky islet ior him until, forty-live',  ..days atter the disappearance of the'  chief,-- Mr Clements, -a Hudson . -B.iy,  tiader, visited the encampment. '  Ho was told the story, and at once,  suggested that a-visit be made-to-the' is-|  land, wheie he thought the skeleton ofi  the chief might be found.   A flotilla oit  canoes put out and in the rank* 'grass!  which was the only vegetation on., the1  island, chici David was ioundhn'the last  stages of staivaticn    He had been on  the little rock in full view of .the en-'  campment for tcity-iive days, and during that time had absolutely nothing  to cat, as, when he recovered (ho saicli  he had been unable to gather any gu Is  eggs and had taken no food with him. ���  Reduced to meie skin and   bone,   it  took tho chief a week to /recover.    He  told his story   to   Mr.   Clements,   v/no!  had remained in the camp, and it was  repeated to Mr. Stevens by members of  the  tribe several  weeks   ago.      David 1  tiled of his  isolation,   and,   remorseful  for his crimes, had determined to com-'  mit suicide by starving himself to death  when he started out ln his canoe. Upon  reaching the little rock in the center 01  the lake, he turned his canoe adrift and  stoically laid down to die.   He said he  suffered terribly from tho pangs ot hunger for the first two weeks, and prayed  for death, but made, no&attempt to at  tract the attenion of the in .ians in^the  camp.  After the first ten days he became  semi-conscious, and did nothing but take  a drink occasionally and lie in the grass  When Mr. Stevens reached the camp of  the Crees several weeks ago, chief  David had been restored to his former  position as leader. He was fat and  hearty, notwithstanding his terrible experience, which, by the way, has made  him one of the best-natured Indians-.in  the entire district.

The city council held a twenty minute  session last evening, wnen routine matters wero disposed of. The members  present wore aldermen Hamilton, Selous,  Paterson, Madden and Gillett. In the ab-  sonco of the mayor alderman Hamilton  was called upon to preside.  The report of tho finance committee  recommending ,the payment of the current accounts was adopted as read, and  the by-law amending the health bylaw, which prohibits the carrying of  swill through the streets by Chinamen,  was reconsidered and finally adopted.,  A communication was read from F.  W. Swannell,' secretary- of the Kootenay Lake General Hospital Society, calling the attention of the council to the  fact that the balance of the civic grant  to the hospital remained unpaid, and  setting out that a check for the same  would be welcome by the management  of the hospital. The balance amounts to  ?1000 and the council decided to authorize the signing of a check for one half  of the grant and to pay the balance some  time next month.  Chief Lilhe of the fire department was  present and reported that the horse  purchasd by the mayor for the use of  the flre department had proven useless  for the purposes of the department and  had been'turned over to the scavenger  department in'return for the mare formerly in use by the department.

Forin   sentenced  the  prisoner" tQ   sfj_  months Imprisonment upon each charge,  tho sentences- to run concurrently   The  judge explained tho light nature of the  sentences by saying that it had been  -represented ; to him  that the- prisoner  just previous-to the thefts complained  of was   suffering  from  the  effects   of  rheumatism and that to relieve his sufferings he had taken some drugs and  that the thefts had. taken place while  the prisoner was under the effects of  the drugs and therefore not strictly accountable for his actions. Judge Forin  observed that the prisoner's actions following the thefts bore out this interpretation of-the circumstances, as it was  known  that following the   thefts  the j  prisoner came to Nelson and left for ]  yancoaver Vkerg tftepe ma every chance 1  ^3S^g^ifa^f'^*a^��_g-?*^^^  HUME���S.
