[  .       n V " I  _S 4-Ap.l  NECK AP NECK  WERE THE YACHTS FROM  START TO FINISH.     ,  CAPTAIN SYCAMORE GAVE CAPTAIN BARR A ROLAND FOR .  HIS OLIVER.  NEW YORK,   September   28���When  the two yachts were towed out to Sandy  Hook lightship there was a fine sailing  breeze blowing nine knots from a little  south of east, with a possible promise  of becoming more southerly as the day  progiessed     The   long   greasy  swells,  always the forerunner of a storm, came  in with considerable force and the roll  of the sea from the southward, caused  by   the   disturbance   down   the   coast,  made it unpleasant for those not accustomed to ocean waves.  .    Columbia hoisted her white sails and  set them till they showed not the slightest wrinkle or soft spot m their .whole  '   surface.   When once her canvas was up  and sheeted home,   Columbia cast loose  from her tug and took a spin seaward,  steering away to the southeast m older  to test the strength of the wind and sea.  Shamrock, when she let   go   her tow,  stood to the eastward and in a series  of preliminary tacks got her canvas in  trim for the serious business of the day.  The wind had freshened a bit when  the   tug   Navigator,   with   the   regatta  committee   aboard,   anchored   at ��� the  southeasterly end of the line off'Sandy  Hook lightship, forming the outer extremity.    Soon aftei wards signals'were  " . hoisted on the committee tug denoting  the course would be east by south, 15  miles to windward and return    The preparatory gun was fired at 10-45'.    Columbia had secured meanwhile a berth  to windward at a considerable distance  to leeward    Baby jibs were hoisted in  stops on both boats and the' Britisher  was first to break out hers to the breeze.  ���  'Captain Sycamore,was at her  tiller as  usual.   Columbia's skipper, Barr,, was at  the wheel.   The fore e^ of -the wind .Vas  now 'fully nine"knots "an houi.   It' was  sometimes puffy and occasionally reached the dimensions of a scupper breeze,  >   *when the yachts heeled to its strength  The' warning gun was fired at 10 55  and at that time both yachts had worked to the windward of the line, with  Shamrock now in the weather position.  At the warning signal both yachts bore  (down and came to leeward    Theie Columbia luffed sharp   to the   port   tack,  ���with Shamiock close on her heels.   At  10:58 Columbia went on the staiboaid  tack, this maneuver being repeated by  her rival. ' Shamrock, luffed up to windward of  Columbia,  when  the  starting  gun came had a splendid position and  went over the line two seconds ahead of  her rival and well placed in the windward   berth.     For   once   the   doughty  ���Charles Bair had met his equal in the  starting trick. -        *���  Columbia tried in vain to work-out  .through the lee of',her opponent. Sey-  erarshorftacks were takenrbut m spite  of all efforts -she could not get clears  She --was jammed under the lee of the  challenger, a position not often occupied  by the old defender. Columbia, on the  port tack,.tned to cross the bows of the  Shamrock, 'but in vain. The Challenger,  having the rxight of way, forced her  about. Instead of v going under her  ���aval's stern Columbia preferred the position under the lee bow so long as she,  scould get the wind free.  At 11:40 Shamrock had a good lead  of nearly 300' yards. When the vessels  were on the port tack they encounteied  a pretty hard sea, while on the starboard tack the sea smote them abeam.  .Shamrock .appeared to splash more  against the-nose-enders than Columbia,-  "but the splashing did not retard her  speed in the least. Not a tremor could  be detected in" the luffs of the sails of  either racer. Both wore handled to perfection, not' the'-least quiver being allowed to'make itself manifest in,a sin-;  gie Cloth.   ;��� XyZyX     . --. -*' ��� :-'-;'..*;   ''  At ythe .Stake Boat_ 1 Y  .By, several sharp tacks.

Finally  _.t 1:37 Columbia broke; out her spinnaker and at the same timei a tremens  ���-,doufl  balloon jib.  Sl____r_K_-  followed  suit. In the heavy roll of the sea, which  was,now on the port quarter of the two  boats, the main booms trailed in the  water as they luiched to leeward. These  were tauted up clear of the sea, thereby spoiling somewhat the set of the  mainsails.  The stern chase is a long chase, but  slowly the old Columbia crawled up on  the new Shamrock. At 2:10 she was  abeam and half a minute later she wa_  the leading boat. Slowly she still crept,  and at 2:14 was all of a half a length  ahead, from that time on to the finish  lino she kept in the lead The wind wasr  now dropping, but in spite of hei larger  sail plan the Shamrock could not prevent the steady but slow' gam of the  Columbia. For nearly an hour the race  continued without further event. Then  at 3 15 the wind freshened slightly, filling out the immense sails of Shamrock,  Slowly she crept up and lessened the  gap betweeen her and the defender.  Now she was only a half length behind Now she was on pretty near even  terms and it became a matter of doubt  _s to which boat would-first cross the  finish line, less than a mile away.  It was the last of the many excitinc  nioments of the. contest, for very soon  Columbia, getting her wind free again,  pulled out and with sui prising" rapidity, opened up on the challenger and  ���pulled out a lead that left the result  no longer in doubt. She crossed the line  a winner, not only on time allowance,  but boat for boat. -  a    Start.  Shamrock   .   .. .v 11*00:14  Columbia   ...Z7 - 11:00 16  ' Outer Mark.

York Clubmen Anxious.      f  NEW YORK, September^..���An^anx-  lous but determined lot of "yachtsmen  gathered'at the New York Yacht Club  tonight for'another  talk   over .yesterday's race, and the chances of Columbia  m her next, contest 'jvith Sjhamrock on  Tuesday, but above all the question of  the prospects of the famous cup at last re- ���  turning from WheneiTit' ca__e7"a_ter b_P*  ing in American hands a brief month  over half a century.   The anxious moments seemed to be m the��rnajonty, although the grim determination not to-  give up the cup   was' quite  prevalent.  Every member frankly admitted that he  had c-perienced something like a scare  and nobody'wanted Columbia to win another race by so close a margin. The  -bulletin board on which was tacked the  committee's brief summary   of   yesterday's race was   the   chief   q-uestion  of  what Columbia would   be   able   to accomplish m the triangular race on Tuesday    Everyone hoped for the best, and  many recalled that during the preliminary racing with the Constitution and Independence, the Morgan boat had shown  much speed when sailing with started  sheets   ��In the race on Tuesday if the  wind holds true, two or the legs of the  triangle will be sailed under these conditions.   One bf the legs, probably the  first,  will  be about 10 miles to wind-  -waid,���the-next-will-be~a���broad~reacbr  under large jig topsails 01 balloon jibs,  while the third leg will be a close fetch  to the finish line.   On these two reaches  all the raceis have shown great speed,  and Columbia has frequently made one  of the 10 miles of the triangle m something under tlnee-quarters of an hour.  It is said that Shamrock has shown a  good 14-kno,t gait in a reach, which is  a tiifle better than Columbia ,has done;  but such timing cannot  be  considered  absolutely leliable.   At anyrate, with a  good breeze the race on Tuesday should  be a fast one.   Much will depend on the  position of the boats at the start, but all  the yacht clubs tonight seems to be the  utmost confidence  in  captain  Barr  of  'Columbia, despite the tact that he.was  outgeneralled yesterday by. the skipper  of Shamrock II.   With Columbia' holding the weather position at the' start,  it seemed to   be   the   general   opinion  that she would keep it to the first turn,  but here came the question of the American boat's ability to; hold the Irishman  in the next two legs, there, were many  who seemed to think that the challenger  might outfoot  the; defender,   and that  captain Barr's only resource -would be  in a hot luffing match.   That there will  be any attempt by one'or the other of-,  the skippers to luff cut to windward in.  the two:reaching legs in Tuesday's race-  seems    almost ..certain;   provided,    of-  course, they are close at the first marker end of the, beat to windward. .  large slice of luck, she will hardly win  the cup. This���latter opinion is the least  hopeful among those > voiced by the  morning papers.

PETORIA, September 29.���A pamphlet has been.published-here, under, lord  Kitchener's authority containing a notice  of the permanent banishment of several  Boer-leaders captured since September'  ,15th,,and also^a longj, letter fror_j|lordi  'Kitchener replying to a communication  ' from acting-president Schalkburger, re-1  ceiyed, September "5th/ Lord-'Ki.chener  promises to send - the Schalkburger let-  ' ter' to the' imperial* government, which  he says1'reciprocates ^nfe'Boer* stated-  man's desire' for peace. Lord -Kitchener  then*- proceeds to explain <,that the, responsibility for the war rests with'the  burghers, whose invasion of unprotected  British- territory opened the! saddest  page in South African history.,,, He has  a letter from a member of vthe volks-  raad to a member of the Cape Colony  assembly, declaring that* "the time is  ripe to drive the English* from South  Afuca." In conclusion, lord Kitchener  declares that having annexed the two  republics to Great Britain, he cannot  break faith with the people who have  shown loyalty to the new regime, and  so far as clemency to Cape Colony rebels is concerned, this is the prerogative  of the ruler, which must be exercised  with unfettered discretion.  A proclamation has been issued providing for the sale of the property of  the burghers still in the field, in accordance with the terms of lord Kitchener's  previous proclamation.  *F AIR VIEW, ^September, 27-rESpeciaI;  Correspondence:]���Ther> postal "depart-'  ment is coming in for a goodly share of j  abuse these days that is not altogether/  unwarranted.

Neither Mr. 'Andre nor Mr.  Hill of the Le Roi accompanied Mr.  Frecheville, but a mau well known in  London mining circles is with him. The  London mining engineer has the reputation of being a trifle slow in his  methods, but very thorough' in all he  undertakes. He will doubtless commence  his investigation'at once.  Edward Williams has, completed his  inquiry into the alleged violation of the  Alien Labor Act, and tomorrow a "full  and detailed report will go to the min-r  ister of justice, setting* out the situa-<  tion-,as found by Mr. Williams.. While  the deportatipn agent has not-spoken'  for publication, it is known that his  report will say that the act* is'and has  'been openly and fragrantly violated. If  the Dominion government decides to'  let the law take its course, Mr. Williams,  can be depended upon to take very'  prompt action once his'instructions are  received. Presumably the reply to the  report will be wired, 'and, if .so, the end'  ,of this week will see some great changes  on Red Mountain and', the hurried exit  of the Missourians, who ^ have been1  brought in here.

Rammelmeyer of Nelson, who has  for the past four years been superintendent of the Emily Edith  mine  in the  Slocan, arrived on'today's stage to take  charge of the mine and mill of the New  Fairview   Corporation,   Limited.    Good  progress is being made in the erection  of the company's mill, the work being  in charge of C. Ostenburg, an expert in  this particular line.   It is expected that  about   the   middle" of   next  month   it  ^should be completed and milling start-  ed early in~TSTovember.     Most   of   the  heavy machinery'is in place.   The boilers have to be bricked in and one engine installed.   Richard Russell, managing director of the company gave out  the following statement to the correspondent of The Tribune:    "It will be a  matter of considerable   satisfaction   to  the shareholders to know that the assessment plan has proved most successful, and we have now sufficient capital  from the flrst call  to  warrant  me in  stating that when the final call is met  we shall be in a good financial position,  entirely free from debt and the machinery   installed   and   running,    The   response has been general to the flrst call  and with few exceptions ��� all the large  shareholders   have- paid   their assessments.   As a result--ye were able to pay  a third. of. the" amount of %Mr. Gooder-  ham's mortgage on our property three  months before it was due, and all other  liabilities.   Besides this the amount,re-  peiyed was sufficient to pay for the necessary   additional   machinery   and   the  cost of erection to date.   We anticipate  that we shall have enough from, the first  call to pay for the future, costs of erection of mill, etc., and that on payment  ;of the final call,of 1 1-2 cents per share,  due on ,or before Octqbler 19th, we shall  have a considerable balance after paying  Mr. Gooderham's mortgage in full."  .'  The first ordinary, general meeting of  , the shareholders1, of the corporation will  be ,,held ,at the local office '��� on Friday,  October: 18th, at 2 p. m.     The meeting  will receive the reports Yof the retiring  directors, elect new directors for.the'ensuing year and transact such other business   as   may   come   before   it.-   The  plan of holding the meeting at Fairview.  will allow many shareholders desirous  of personally attending a chance to ex-  arnine'the   Stemwinder mine  and the  new mill, which by that time should be  ready;to crush  ore.    If, Mr.   Rammelmeyer succeeds   in  making  the ?5 ore  of the Stemwinder pay with the present  moderate milling capacity, it will  not'  be long before an immense milling plant  will be erected to treat a correspondingly larger output,   In Mr. Russell the  company has had as manging  director  one of the most energetic and conservative officials that any mining company  in the province could be blessed with.  ,King Sojomon  .",; '.,..,    60  ,'Total tonnage.for week-6,858.  *' Total   for 'year   264,418;^valued /at'  $1,586,508.  r.       . -,'���.-  ">.

Fulforthv time 15 3-4 seconds. *  He struck Deprend on the right side of  the abdomen with a"knife or other sharp  weapon, cutting an "It" gash in his overcoat; an inch and a half long each way,  and a smaller one in his blouse. The'  flesh was not broken, but was bruised  under the cuts in the clothing. Deprend  in the struggle fell andJ rolled down the  side,: of *the vaults Lieutenant Ash-  bridge, officer of the day, was, in front of  the vault and rushed to the top on hearing thej shot, but the , men made good  their escape.

ROSSLAND,   Septemuer  29l��� [Special  ' to The Tribune.]���-Robert James Freche-  ��� ville, the looked for new director of the  * Attacked With a Knife. i  CANTON, Ohio, September 29.���The  guard at- the McKinley tomb claiiris; to  have been attacked tonight. He, fired a  shot, 'but was di verted by a second" riian  with a knife thrust, which penetrated  the guard's overcoat and blouse.  CANTON, Ohio, September 29.���Military* regulations prevent either the "officers or the men of the post from being  quoted on any matter connected with  their service., For this reason captain  Bindle. was obliged to decline to be  quoted'at camp tonight. He will make  a full report to his superior officers at  once. Reliable authority made the folr  lowing statement:   ���  Private Deprend was on. guard duty  on top of the vault at a point commanding the entrance below, and the man approached from the rear. Shortly before  7:30 o'clock he saw what he took to be  the face, of a man peering from behind  a tree about thirty feet from his post.  He watched for twenty minutes, he says,  and at 7:46 saw the man hurry to a tree  ten feet nearer. He challenged-the man  to halt, but this was not heeded, and the  fellow approached nearer. Deprend leveled his gun and aimed to shoot for effect, but;just at that Instant another  man,-who came towards him from the  opposite side, caught the gun, threw it  up, and the. bullet was spent in the air.  Making it Hot for Special Police..! 1  SAN FRANCISCO, September 29���A  pitched battle between stnkcis and policemen occurred shortly after 1 o'clock  this morning in Kearney street. Seven  men are known to have been wounded,  one1 probably fatally, and it is though-  several others who escaped arrest were  injured. Not less than 50 shots were  fired. A'number of plate glass windows  were broken by flying bullets. Four special police and a recently discharged  naval man were made, targets for an  assault by a mob of strikers and-sympathizers numbering 200. William Miller, a striking teamster, was shot in  the left breast, and will probably die.  The special police were on their way  home.from'a variety theatre. When they  turned into Market street they noticed  a large crowd following.; They asked ;a  motorman to accompany them. Just as  the party reached Kearney, street a shot  was fired. It-was followed by several  others,; and. a regular fusilade resulted.  Th'e'rriob scattered in all directions, but  not before the police had succeeded in  arresting, about thirty of them. Four  were identified as striking teamsters.  While - officer Tillman was attempting to  protect the specials, when the first shots  were fired, one of the men fired at him  at short range. The bullet grazed Tillman's ear.  ' The Abducted Miss Stone.  CONSTANTINOPLE, September 29.���  O.

The" Tribune has no motive other than  the one that all fair-minded men should  have, that is, a desire to have the business of the province carried on reasonably well. The Tribune Delieves that Mr.  Wells has not conducted his department  even reasonably well, and its opinion is  shared by many who have had direct  dealings with the lands and works department before 'and since Mr. 'Well's  incumbency'of that office. The Tribune  is an independent newspaper, and its  opinions are without party bias. It is  as free1 from party bias as any newspaper sin Canada, and its recommendation* to the premier that Price Ellison  of East Yale be given a -chance to do  wh'at'W. C. Wells has failed'tb do was  not 'because Mr. Ellison was a Conservative or Mr. Wells a-Liberal. Far  from" ��� it. Mr. Ellison is a < successful  farmer and has large interests in the riding'which he represents, and the riding  _Xt *  i   I �� ---v      i  he represents is the most Important in  the province from an agricultural standpoint. .Its people' have 'chosen ^ Mr/, El-  'lisoDYto represent'them?,'and* he is as  representative   of   Kis"  riding   as; Mr.  Wells'is of his riding; the. one'-difference  is "that Mr. Ellison represents ^ttiree'peor  pie' toJ Mr. -'Wells's. . The'-Tribune ' has  not attacked Mr. Wells n"s'an" individual ;  it has "merely attacked -liim Wan- official.  ,'Mr; -Ellison may be all the "Era.'says he  is^ but*he certainly 'cannot'be charged  'with* being a failure as ^commissioner  'of-lands and works .'until''he has-been  tried: The Tribune must take-issue with  the 'Era on Mr.:Wells's 'popularity. lAt  .the last session-Mr. :WellsYwas i the most  unpopular member of the government,  'notf even 'excepting"- 'James   Douglas  Prentice. Here is what.the Era says:  *v>"We'wo'uld respectfully ask the Nelson Tribune to. state,'truthfully its real  'objections to Hon. W.' C. Wells as chief  commissioner rbf lands and works. The  -Tribune*''"has).iof 'course' stated certain  reasons^ but they are'of;such a nature  as'.can"be easily,disproved. It has said  that-Mr. Wells ,is-incompetent. What'  proof'"can-The Tribune bring forth tp'  substantiate1 .jtliis  charge? Last winter  while the house was in session, the press  of ' the -��� province * unanimously declare'di  that  Mr/t Wells - was  by ' far the  b'estr  commissioner, of lands and works that  the province,ever h^d.

Finally the mine-  owner ships the 1000 tons of low grade  ore, which has cost him all it is worth  (?5 a ton) to mine. He gets a freight*  and treatment rate of $3.50 a ton, which  leaves him $1.50 a ton, on which he is  required to'pay the province a tax of 2  per cent The tax on the 1000 tons of low-  grade ore is just ?30, which, according  to some newspapers is a grievous burden on the mine owner.

Several weeks  ago av statement 'was  published to the effect that sir Thomas  'Lipton, on his recent itrip-across'the  water to this country, made the state-  ,ment that one of his"captains sold him  out  in,the  last, race  for'��300.   This  statement was credited to B. F. Wade^  for years "one of.the foremost business  men "in   Toledo/ Ohio/  who (said   sir  Thomas"cmade that lemark'to him when  they were fellow passengers.- Sir Thomas  promptly denied it. Mr.^Wade. remembered that a prominent wholesale meri  chant of New York, John McCullough,  of the Belfast Linen Handkerchief Com^  pany, had. been< present and,overheard^  the statement. He. was rather nettled at  sinse iv    sir Thomas'* curt* denial 'of 'the assertion and wrote to Mr. "McCullough for  confirmation ofthe matters Following  the statement made by Mr. /Wade and  appended^, thereto  is the letter' fhe - received - from Mr. McCullough-Y   ���-���-.*'���* (  "On our second morning out from Liv^  erpool, Friday, August 16th, 1901, about  6:40 a   m.,  John'McCullough and^the  writer were seated 'at "the head of the  main stairs on board the" steamer" Teutonic  bound for-New-York"; when'sir  Thomas  came   up   the   stairs.   At  the  landing   we   arose   and   extended   the  morning greeting,, whon he asked us--to  be seated. During, the conversation we  wished he might 'Win 'the'* coming race,  as we believed it would cieate a livelier  interest in yachting for'the future^ when,  unsolicited on our part, and without any  reserve on his part, he went on to'^tell  us -how his captain had sold .out two  years ago for about  ��200 or  ��300���1  am not certain whether he-said "two or  three,--but that his crew was-true *as  steel. We then said that when he^found  his, captain was  not  doing what  was  right he should have discharged him".  Mr.  Lipton replied that he was,not'a  sailor and could not sail the boat, but  this time he had the designer with him  and  captain  Svcamore,  who were the,  -bcst-and-truest-sailors^in-all^Ehglana^  In a general conversation he was ciuitc  severe with his former captain.

I remember it distinctly, but there  appeared in tfne of our papers the statement  which   credits   you   with   saying  that sir Thomas told you that his crew  was, disloyal.   He  denied   eyer  making  such a statement and from your letter  you evidently did not, either. Some re-  poi ter got your statement twisted as regards  the  crew  and  it was  evidently  shown to sir Thomas, as he came out  with a prompt .denial.

Captain Gifford has received word  from the educational department at Victoria notifying him that Miss Read, the  teacher engaged by the department for  the nevf school to be opened at the Silver  King mine, had left Victoria for Nelson  on Saturday. This information will be  pleasant reading to tho large number of  families now at the mine, who were induced-to take up their residence at the  mine on the assurance of captain Gifford, secretary of the school board, that  the school would be opened without delay.  For the past few days the rumor has  been persistently circulated that the  deal by which the Athabasca company  was, to secure control of the Venus property has fallen through. While it has  not been possible to verify the rumor,  it 'has received .some confirmation from  the circumstance that the Athabasca  management has decided upon removing  a Quantity of stores from the mine to  Nelson. This is taken to mean that  there is no prospect of the company resuming work either on the Athabasca or  the-Venus within the immediate future.  iffl^i. ���?/ ���'-___��� 'v'  WM74.1 - ~.. iig  - ���  i*W'&;    .'-Ml   .^'l'*  WE ARE SHOWING THE FINEST STOCK OF RATTAN  .> < --> GOODS EVER SHOWN IN THE CITY; .   -    * ���  IWfA   . 3  ��-. -  Pis- ��L  (m-'y<  life'  ILfe^-'  J-*   .     r-irt  th       />,-  !��� _.     r,��  Ir - a .'  ���v.1' --     '-  -.

John Snyder/ the prisoner, who committed suicide in ithe Grand Forfts jail  on'Friday, was the man ��� who , walked  ���out of the. pro vincial jail, yard in this  city a* short time ago. At'the time of  his escape Snyder had'but seven days  to serve on a six month's sentence, and  '-for this reason was employed as a trusty  about the institution. Since his' escape  from letters'he" had" written to the provincial- jail officials, ,:\f ������ js ^evident 'the  man was more or; less, insane.- He had  left a quantity of -clothing and ��� other  personal effects ih the jail and in writing back for Yit gave as his .reason'for.  leaving the jail' the story that he had  heard the Yofflcials. .of "the '.jaij talking  over his case and 'his ^belief that they  were in .collusion with,_ the chief of _JoT  -Jice of-Phoenix'in 8Q*m.e fancied persecution of himself..After leaving Nelson-  Snyder, worked .for a few; days at the  Northport smelter,'"but. left there in.  order to get out of ,the way of' the. po7  lice .officers,'whom he.'tthought.,*vyere  after ,him.', ; '.,      '' "   ���     "'   ,f -���-  It is /reported that .A.- H. Kelly, is  meeting with great success in his development of the May and Jennie property  on Forty-nine creek, which was1 under  bond-* to the Fleutot syndicate. for sevr  eral. months. One of the > reasons * asf  < signed for throwing up the bond'by the  Fleutot syndicate was that in- raising  for the pay chute, from the lower level  to .-the .upper . level, it had been , lost  c-gmpletely. Since taking over, the property Mr. Kelly has given his entire attention to exploratory work ip this upraise, with a view to finding tb. pay,  chute, and it is reported that he has  been altogether successful, The explanation given for the missing of the pay  chute by the previous operators is that  -the~chut.rtook-a-greater-dip~than"iirwas  supposed * to have, and that, in raising  the.'Fleutot people encountered a barren-portion* and passed through without recognizing it. In this way it is said  that the 'chute was completely .missed  and the upraise was put up behind the  body of ore it was being driven to tap  instead of running up with it. The story  that Mr, Kelly disclosed the chute of  ore he was after with comparatively few  shots furnished a good illustration of  how easy, it is to miss what is' being  sought under ground. Sinking is being  done pn the' ore body and the lower  tunnel will be ^continued to tap it on  that level. Those who aro familiar with  the property say that recent developments arc such as should very shortly  restore it to favor, and that the present  showin; is sufficient to warrant the  erectio* of a small mill. "'>.  John Gallagher- a stonemason employed jat the Kaslo marble quarry, occasion'fl the police a good deal of worry  on Sat rday. He came to the city on the  morniig steamer and "proceeded to fill  up on iquor. It was soon noised around  that tlere was a man in the city from  Kaslo who had been in a shooting affray  in tha; city- and that he was carrying  a coui le of bullets around in his body.  As Gillagher was doing considerable  talkinc himself, the police had no difficulty n locating him. To chief Jarvis'  Gallagner repeated that he had been shot  twite/ but he professed to .know nothing fu *ther about the matter beyond the  fact ttat the shooting had taken place  while he was in Kaslo on the previous  evenii g. The police decided to have the  mans . ounds examined and he was taken  to Dr LaBau. The examination showed  that Gallagher had been stabbed instead  of --shpto but - none of the wounds were  serious. One slash on the wrist required  a couple" of stitches, but two stabs, evidently from a small-bladed knife, which  were (found on the lower portion of his  body, did not require attention. When  assured that he had not been shot Gallagher appeared to be greatly relieved,  and it. once proceeded to load up. He  was fathered in for drunkenness, by the  police a few hours later, and by way of  diveipion smashed in one of the door  panels of the lockup. He will come before the police magistrate this morning, when it isithought some light will  be thrown upon the circumstances connected'with his wounding.  PERSONALS.  W. P.
