Police in civilian clothing interfered, siding jvith the inhabitants and  the. fight became'general   The Germans  .made   their   way   towards pthe   wharf,  where they boarded the German .steamer ^alcsla, mooored at that place. Jn"  -the meantime'-two petty'officers bf the.  Vonita,   who   wero  entirely  sober  aiTd"  'wore waiting at the .wharf to ,take th.  Venita's boat were attacked by the do-'  lice. They resisted and the police wounded them both badly with their, swords.  'All the Germans ashore were unarmed.  The  wounded  petty oflicers  were  earned on board the Valesia by members  of the Valesia's crew, the populace and  police still-.attacking them with stones  and sticks The mob then tried to board  the "Valesia, but were prevented from so  doing by the captain and crew of that  vessel. In the meanwhile the captain of  the Valesia had signalled to the Venita,  which was in the harbor, the perilous  situation of the Germans and the Ven  ita sent a boat load of 30 armed men to  the Valesia, which they boarded by the  side opposite the wharf,  not standing  on Venezuelan soil. The mob, estimated  to number 1200 persons, was still acting  _in _a J.h.E_atening___anner__and_having  fired a few shots the commander of the  Venita's boat ordered his men to perform the motions of loading, but not  to put cartridges into their rifes.

KANSAS CITY, October lO.-rGeorge  Green of Sftn Franj-isco got tlie decision  over Tommy Ryan in the sixth rouiifl Jn  A tout at a Jocal elub tonight ,  * . i-  There was a livel.Vj meeting of the  Nelson * board (ot trade f_ast evening.. It  was. generally .understood that the  board as a body would be asked to take  notice of a circular which had been  sent out to the retail grocers) of the district by the retailers of Nelson seeking  their co-operation with a view to defeating-the efforts of the board of trade  to secure for the wholesale" houses' of  Nelson a, wholesalers' tariff to apply to  all shipments sent from Nelson to retail traders throughout the' area tributary to Nelson. The result was'the  best meeting th'e board has had for several months. .. {  Peicy Chapman, chairman jof the'?pe-  cial committtee of.the boari upon the  railway rates, and who also.happens to  be president of the local wholesalers'  association, started the ball rolling by  handing in the report <~*f the committee  as presented to railway commissioner  McLean., The report was read  by the  secretary,  the  substance  of  it  having  been previously printed*1 in The Tribune.  In*speaking of the report the chairman  remarked that* a few- days after it had  appeared in the^press his attention had  oeen called by one of the patrons of his  firm i to a letter^which', had. been circulated throughout the [district by the retail giocers of Nelson _n which an at-  temnt was.beine; made* to'defeat the'object sought by the special committee on  railway .rates.* He. produced a copy of  the letter,.which he asked the secretary  of the board to" read. The letter dealt  with some matters''in dispute between  the local* retail grocers- and>the .wholesale  grocers  respecting the  respective  limits of, wholesale and retail trade, but  the" mam _ portion  of   it  was   directed  against the efforts of. the board 'of trade  to secure'.or-the Nelson. whciKsalers the  advantage    of   a   wholesalers^, freight  tariff on outward   shipments, .it   being  stated in so many words that" if this  object could'be attained as the<result of  the organized opposition of the retail  grocers of the district it" would more  than repay them for their trouble of organizing. This letter was signed by C.  Morrison as secretary, and T. McPherson as president of the Nelson Retail  Grocers' Association. -  Mr. Chapman m speaking on the subject of the letter said he was of the  opinion that while the first two portions  of the letter did not properly fall within  the jurisdiction - of   the  board  the  third section or clause was a matter of  which the ooard was bound in a measure to take up. The first two clauses of  the letter dealt with a matter of a purely   domestic   nature   as   between   the  wholesale and retail grocers, but there  -was-no-i elation-botween-them-and- the  third clause. On behalf of the A   Macdonald  Company  he  had  addressed  a  letter to lhe Retail Grocers' Association,  but had received no reply. On behalf of  the Wholesale Grocers' Association he  had addressed a second communication  to which he had received a reply, offering on behalt of the retailers to meet  the  wholesalers  on  Thursday  evening  next   The third clause in the letter of  the retail grocers raised a very,serious  issue, and one which affected the entire  wholesalo trade of the city, and for this  reason it was entitled to receive the attention of the board.  He was  of the  opinion that the letter had already done  considerable mischief in   that   it   had  reached lhe hands ot those who were  envious of Nelson as a commercial center and it was. not unlikely'.that the letter  coming from the  Nelson retailers  had been used to strike?at the wholesale trade of Nelson. Iii' the hands of  such men the letter might ;be used ,for  the.purpose of showing at Ottawa that  there was a divivsion of opinion in Nel-  * son iself.upon the advisability of granting to its wholesale merchants the ad-  ��� vantage of a wholesalers" tariff-.or any  other: cod cession : th at might be "ealcu-  '! lated. to, establish more.: firmly. Nelson's  ^position as a distributing?center.; With  ': respect to the first two grievances, cbm-'  ; plained -of in the letter of the 'retailers  ��� he. said'-he was ready at-any time to defend the course of the wholesalers toward the retail traders, and he ���was satisfied that he would have-'no difficulty  :in'convincing any reasonable man tliat  with respect to his own firm in particu-  ��� lar and the local wholesalers' iri general  ; every protection that the retailers could  < reasonably ask for had been extended  ithem...  . *.  President Holt suggested that any  discussion on the matter of tlie committee's report or the letter of the retailers eo far as it affected the report  should be made regular by amotion to  adopt the repoi-t as presented by Mb.  Chapman. This would enable all who  might desire to speak' upon the question  ' to do so Mr. Chapman acted upon the  suggestion of the chair and tedded that  in his opinion the third clause in the  j-ptailers' circular was a matter which  might properly be dip-cussed in connection with the report.  George Bell, who waa the only member of the Retail Grocers' Association  'preserit/exprepsefl the opinion that the  retail grocers should have a chance to  explain their action before being asked  to withdraw it or be condemned for it.  While he did not presume to speak for  the retail groceis, he did not mind saying that the retail grocers of Nelson  and tha surrounding district considered  that they had a grievance against the  local wholesalers. He was a retailer and  he claimed the retailers had a grievance. He was of the opinion that before  the board took action it should define  what a wholesale trader meant and  what a retail trader meant. .  F. J. Starkey, in reply to Mr. Bell,  said the retailers could not" claim that  they had been taken by surprise. In the  one r'.ply that the retailers had given  to the wholesalers they had shirked the  main question. He was of the* opinion  that the board was committed to the"  work of getting a wholesale tariff' for  the-local wholesale tiuuses" of Nelson  not solely in the interests of" Nelson,  but in the interests o�� the entire Kootenay district.  Edward Ferguson said that from the  reading of the letter of the retail gro-  cers.it appearedto him that anykdi_!er-  ences that there were existing were solely   differences   between   the "wholesale  .and  retail grocers  The proper  course  was to adopt the resolution approving  of the report ot the committee and then  take up'the letter, of the retailers and if  the board saw fit ask the retailers,to  withdraw  the  third  tiause.i to  which  j in  his   opinion   objection  might   very  justly be taken by the board,-* as the  ' retaileirs   certainly   appeared   to   have  misunderstood the action of the board,  which they were trying to defeat. '  _ . President Holt remarked^ that while  he' did not wish to .appear as'a partisan  in'the''chair, he felt free to say that for  a long time tbe board had devoted itself  to theStask of securing "a preferential  tariff, for the Nelson wholesalers .iind  'he did" not think that the board "would  recede from- the position that  it  had  taken."1 'Neither did he ' agree' with the  suggestion  that  the .board   should   be  palled (upoi* to define who was arJ wholesaler or who was a retjailer. The adoption 'ofthe report was simply a confirmation' of the action along^the lines  thatither board had pursued for.several  years. He then put'the ^motion,-, which  was carried without a division.  ' .Before"'opening the matter for^further  discussion the' president deprecated'"the  airing of quarrels .between the, different  branches - of, ti ade, at, meetings. of  the  board.   But there was  a very,, serious  matter ^connected with the dispute and  one which the board should face'--To his  mind 'it .would be a very serious-thing  for Nelson it, its wholesale merchants  weie so. hampered.that they could not  carry 'on v their business at a profit,-- but  as there was. to be, a joint "meeting of  the wholesalers, and' retailers'onj-Thurs-  day evening next, he threw tout the hint  that it would probably "be best if the  boaid should express its opinion generally upon the question of the wholesale tariff and let'tho matter go over  until  itvcould'be  determined whether  tho contending forces could not come  to   some   arrangement   among   themselves,  coupled  with  a  provision that  the board should tcndei   its good offices in the event of i their failing.  Mr.   Feiguson  then   moved' that  +he  president appoint a committee of three  to meet the wholesale and retail grocers on Thursday evening with a view  to inducing the .rctaiJeis to withdraw  the third clause \)f their letter, which  had for its avowed objects the defeating  of the efforts of the board to secure for  the local wholesalers a wholesalers tariff such as was enjoyed by the wholesalers in other places. ���  ���George���BelMopposed���thc-ros01ution.-  He  contended that before taking any  action present differences between the  wholesale  and   retail   branches  of the  tiade should be straightened out  Mr. Chapman explained to the meeting that one of the points of difference  between the wholesale and retail trade  arose with respect to the supplying of  large mining companies. The retailers  wished to drive the wholesalers out of  this business, when, as _. matter of fact,  in order to secure it the local wholesalers were thrown .uto competition  not with the local retailers, but with the  wholesale houses on tho Coast, to whom  tho local letailers had refeired this very  grievance.   ���  Mr.  Robertson  seconded  the  motion  of Mr. Ferguson. He' ..as also of.the  opinion that the circulation of tho retailers' letter, especially clause   3, had  worked a great injury to the trade or  the Nelson wholesalers and he thought  it-was a mattery that the board could,  very properly deal witn. In his opinion  ��� the circular was no credit to the men  who were responsible for it.   With re-  spoct  to   the   difficulty   complained   of  : as to the- dividing' line between the retail trade and wholesale,-trade it was  not a difficulty peculiar to Nelson. The  same ' difficulty had present'ed ."itself in  ��� Winnipeg and other places. The .retailers complained, that the Nelson wholesalers   were   not   wholesalers   because  they sold to the. large mines. What had  they to say with? respect to the wholesale houses selling to restaurants? He  could tell-them that in Spokane Daven.  port's restaurant purchase.} 9II its supplies  f(*om  the  wholesale  houses,  and  from the largest wholesale houses.   The  retail' grocers of Nelson placed orders  in many instances for ?150, .while- the  large   mines   placed   orders   for   $1000,.  What the retailers wanted .yas that the  wholesalers should turn the $1000 "order  for  the $150 order.' In "Vy-inh'ipeg also  the    wholesale    houses    supplied    t*_9  hotels. Tp Ills pilnjl the (inl'y defipltio.n  of a wholesaler was one who sold in  a wholesale way. He was of the opinion  that the wholesale trade of Nelson had  sp.fferpd RS the result ot the retatl grocers'  plrcular and the board  of trade  should take notice of it,  J. M, Lay expressed himself as in  favqr of the resolution calling for a  committee. He thought that the retailers did not realize whx\, they were doing  and was of the opinion that the com  mittee would have no difficulty in inducing them to withdraw tho clause  complained of.  President Holt said it was not a question as to whether it ..as injudicious or  not. He was sure that every Independent  person would regret that it had, been  sent out, but the question before the  board  was whether the  board should  ���express its condemnation of clause 3 of  the circular or appoint a committee for  the purpose of seeing whether the retailers would withdraw it.  *- W..W..Beer said he did not take the  same view of the circular that the majority of the members took. He considered that' the wholW difficulty, was' in  the definition of a wholesaler and a retailer. ' '*-?-,  Percy Chapman ,then move'd an amendment to the motion as moved by Mr:  Ferguson' to,the' e'ffect* that .instead of  appointing a* committee to express the  disapproval of the board,with the'eir-?  cular.f that the board  express its disapproval by circular.

According to the same.census*returns,  Victoria district has 1418 men, women,  and children.

Eight  members, as above, represent   a   total  population of 23,567, or-one,member for  each  c2941 - of   population.

The Mackenzie '& Mann newspaper  organs are howling for a new election.  They want that V. V. & E. subsidy, and  they want it bad. The chief of these  howlers is the Vancouver World. It  says: "British Columbia wants free-  "dom from political turmoil, from end-  "less. scheming for office. But it is not  "likely to get it while there is any possibility of a recurrence. If Mr. Duns-  "muir clings to office with the grip of  "the drowning man then the time from  "now to January will be nearly four  "months of intrigue? The province can-  "hot stand that sort of thing much  'longer.  While' the census returns for British  Columbia are incbmplete, a fairly, accurate estimate  can  be  made.   Victoria  city and Victoria'district have a popula-'  Ition  of 23,567,  New Westminster city  and New  Westminster /district .22,371,.  ^Vancouver   city' 26,196,   Nanaimo "city  6100, and the remainder of-Vancouver Island and Cassiar district say 10,000.,The  'total population of the*province outside  of   Yale-Cariboo   electoral,   district ,is  .therefore 88,234.   Estimating the Indian  'Population at 30,000, vne remainder of  the 190,000, of _ population   is   in   Yale-*  Cariboo.    This population (7_.,766) ,has  _one_member_m_the_house__6f_eommons_  against five members for the 88,234 people at the Coast.   Is it any wonder that  the Coast, politicians do not look w'ith  favor on any fair measure, of redistributing the seats in* the house of/Commons  or invtthe local house?   They know that  if the interior is treated with fairness  that their day for dominating the politics of the province is at an end. Members of the interior should have but one  purpose and work for but one end from  this time on, that is, equality in representation at both Ottawa and Victoria.

VENEZUELA IS FOR .PEACE  the  The Victoria Times says The Tribune"  is too modest "to name the men who.  should be .taken   into  premier  Duns-  muir's cabinet to replace  some .of the  worthless timber now in it.   No;  The  Tribune gave  the  names, and has  no  reason to change any one of them.   The  names, were':    Captain Tatlow of Vancouver for finance minister; Price Elli-r  son of East Yale for commissioner of'  lands and works; and Robert F. Green  of Slocan for minister of mines.   These  three gentlemen   represent   representative ridings, are men   of good  ability,,  and their personal  honesty  has  never  been questioned.   But The Times would  have it appear that the   member   for  Nelson is hankering   for   a   chance to  draw a cabinet minister's salary.   No;  the member for Nelson is not at all ambitious in that direction.   But, the mem-  (ber for Nelson can carry the country  against the junior senator for Victoria,  and do it too without drawing on Ottawa for either funds or ideas.

Venezuela recognizes the  .fact that the   maintenance  of  a, large  .army   on  the   frontier   is   exceedingly  costly, without directly benefitting the  'country.   Along the frontier, from Ta-  chia to Guajira, the Venezuelan army  has protected the occupied positions by  I entrenching and strengthening.them, in  which the troops will await attack, having orders to remain firmly, on the defensive and not to adopt measures of aggression, but to repel, invasion.   The reply, to the memorandum of Dr. Blanche,  the Venezuelan.minister of foreign af-  , fairs, and to Venezuela's r,equest to Dr.  Rico, the minister of Colombia to Ven-  ! ezuela, to explain Colombia's invasion of  Lachira in July could reach here at the  i end of this month,' according to the calculations of the time Dr. Rico requires  to reach Bogota to confer with the Colombian cabinet and transmit the letters  *with the answer to Caracas.   Venezuela  lis anxious to receive Colombia's reply.  In the meantime the frontier situation  is dangerous. ��� Two forces of field' men,  (With dividing neutral zone, "are confronting each other.   A misunderstood order,  I a trivial accident, or a miner unintended  engagement might precipitate a'bloody  ; fight.    Venezuela is confident that she  can successfully hold, her  present  position against a possible invasion.  To Buy American Horses.

The   America   Cup,   now   the   great  yachting prize of the world, was originally known as the Hundred Guinea cup,  and was a trophy of the"Eng_ish Royal  Yacht Club.   It got its present name in  1851.    On the 22nd of August in that  year, at  the  Cowes   regatta,''the  keel  schooner yacht America, 70 tons owned  -    by John C. Stevens and G. L. Schuyler,  of New York, won the cup from a fleet  of 15 British yachts, her nearest opponent, T. Le Marchand's Aurora, 47 tons,  being over 20 minutes behind.   The, cup  thus won was presented by the owners  of the America to the New Yoik Yacht  Club for friendly competition, any organized    yacht   club    of   any   foreign  country having the right to compete, the  cup to become for the time the property  of the club, and not the members of the  club or owners of the winning yacht.  ���    ���- In 1870 James Ashbury fcent for the"  ���    flrst race for -'the cup iu America the  schooner   yacht   Cambria, of   227 tons,  to do battle for England.    On August  8th the Cambria was beaten by nearly  40 mmutes by the 97-ton schooner Mag'ic,  owned by J. F. Osgood.  In 1871 Mr. Ashbury returned-to the  game, sending over the schooner Li-  vornia, of 280-tons, with a waterline of  107 feet and 23 feet beam. The-conditions on this ocasion were 'to contest  seven matches, the Livorriia to be*op-  _>os'ed by a yacht selected by^the New  . York club on the" morning of each race,  but this was "due to the fact that" the  'Schooner   Columbia, 'which   sailed -the  first three matches and won the two previous* ones,   carried   away  her steering'gear.   The schooner Sappho owned  by W. P. Douglas, won the fourth race  by 30 minutes/21 seconds, "and'the fifth  and flnaL contests by 25 minutes, 27 seconds? ' - _�� _  In 1876 the Canadian appeared on the  scene and "the Royal Canadian   Yacht  Club sent-over the schooner Countess,  , -,   of-Dufferin, '138.tons, oyrned'by major. C.~  ��� ...; Gifford,''to oppose the 151_-ton schooner  ,  ��� "Madeline, the -property-pf 'J. S. Dlcker-  ���   son.1---Two,races settled"the question of  supremacy in-favor of Madeline,, which^  won the first1 match in 9 minutes, -IS^sec-  bnds,,on August llth.'and the second-on  the following day, by 27 minutes, 14 seconds.                -  In 1881 another Canadian' challenger  came,from the Bay of Quinte -Yacht  Club, which sent tov the contest the Atlanta, the United States boat being the  - Mischief. The first race'took place on  'November 9th, when the Mischief passed  the winning point 31 finutes, 15 seconds  to the good, and in the-second and deciding race increased'her advantage at'  the finish "to 36 minutes, 54 seconds.  It was not till 1885 that there was another contest. In that year sir Richard  Sutton's 80-ton cutter Genesta, was sent  over to try and wrest the* cup from its  .holders. She found more than her. match;  in the sloop Puritan, which proved sue-'  __'Cessful_in ,the_two_races_contested,_on_  -���September 14th and Ibth, by 6 minutes,  47 seconds, and 2 minutes, 9 seconds res-/  ���pectively.  In 1886 lieutenant ,\YiHiaf Henn, R.N.,  entered his cutter Galatea, 171 tons? but  she met with no more success than her  predecessors, being beaten by the Mayflower, 174 tons, the property of general  Charles J. Paine, the flrst race by" 12  minutes, 20 seconds, and in the second  by 29 minutes, 48 seconds.  The year 1887 saw general Paine again  in the lists, defending the cup with the  sloop -Vo'l unteery 200 tons, against the  Scottish cutter, Thistle, of 253 tons,  owned by James Bell of Glascow. The  Volunteer won both races with comparative ease?  In 1893 lord Dunraven entered the  cutter Valkyrie II., of 106 tons, designed  by G. L. Watson, but was defeated by  Iselin and Morgan's sloop Vigilant.  In 1893 lord   Dunraven   entered   the  other Valkyrie,   also   of   Mr.   Watson's  design.    In the flrst race Valkyrie III.  -was  beaten   by " Iselin   and   Morgan's  ���sloop Defender, 134 tons, by 8 minutes,  1 '20 seconds actual time.    In the second  race on September llth the British yacht  -won by 47 seconds, but the race yas giv-  *, en to the Defender on a foul. In the next  *. contest   the United States   yacht was  t' allowed to sail over the course alone,  Valkyrie III withdrawing from the race  after crossing the line.    This   contest  was marked by some serious ill-feeling,  ' one result being the expulsion from the  New York Yacht Club's membership of  -the Valkyrie's owner.     .  ���*      In 1899 sir Thomas Lipton entered his  ���sloop Shamrock, of   144   tons,   against  Messrs. Islen and   Morgan's   Columbia,  145   tons.     The   Columbia   won   after  Ij many delays from lack of wind.  The race this year is so recent that  ���even? reader of The Tribune knows the  jesult.  that were being made by the Boers for  war. Mr. Green was also well supplied  by friends with" a precise form of the  correspondence of the Transvaal representatives and their agents in Europe  with Pretoria, detailing the interviews  with the different foreign ministers of  Europe, besides copies of offlcjal, and  secret correspondence that went from  Pretoria to Europe. It is only fair to  assume that Mr. Green forwarded all the  documents that came into his hands to  the home government, so it becomes  more difficult than ever to understand  our unpreparedness- for war.  Copies of secret correspondence are  says the viscount, still in existence, for  all that is known" to the contrary. Before hostilities broke out one of the  parties who held information, sent the  particulars out of the country for safety  and future* use. On the arrival of lord  Roberts at Pretoria, an order was given  to send the papers back to the Trans-'  vaal capital. Directly afterwards it was  deemed fit to countermand this order*  but' least the papers should be lost, ci-  vost marshal at Pretoria! ��� The writer  vost mai shall at Pretona. The writer  of this pamphlet expressed the hope  that when the time is ripe ahd seasona-**  ble, the press will be in a position to  publish the correspondence.  With regard to the future he thinks  if there was" a sir "Wilfrid Laurier in'  South Africa, one whom the Dutch people could implicitly trust and believe in  always close to the high .commissioner,'  there would be chance soon of creating  the desired harmonious whole, by making its able pro-consul better understood  and appreciated.

The'drain on'the forests of the state has been enormous in  past years.. Where coal was unavailable  rehance -had to be   placed   chiefly   on  cordwood   by   interior   industhies   and  iliose sections of the railroads operated  at  a distance -from  the seaboard ' and  other sources of supply. As a> result the  growing timber which the logger found  unavailable for lumber fell before the  Hxe of the woodchopper. 'in some, sec"  uqn.   the^ finish  of the' forest seemed  co be actually iri "sight   Fortunately"for  -he remnant-.   of_ the woodlands which  havo    escaped  "the    axe,    particularly  those in Hie ranges south dl "this city,  crude petroleum .s^coniing to the front  ^o; thoir  relief,  and' they ' may! yet  be  saved for posterity to enjoy./1'he "influence, of'oil as a fuel promises to be very_  marked   in "tho  northern  partvof  the  state, where it has been found to be  .suitable   and   more   economical  'than  r cordwood to-use as fuel for the smelting of ores. The great smelting", establishments m Shasta county have been  drawing .something like 80,000 cords of  wood a year from  the forests' at the  head of tuo McCloud river. As the number and capacity of these smelters were  being increased annually, the tremendous drain on "the forests was ominous  of evil days in the coming years through  the   prospective   denudation,  of   these  timber lands.  The product of our oil  wells promises now to save them from  that 'fate, or at all events, to prevent  the experiencing a worse one than the  weeding out of the timber convertible'  into lumber. Crude oil has been introduced  into the  smelting furnaces and  the consumption  of cordwood  as fU3l  will soon be greatly diminished? if it  docs not altogether cease. The outlook  is,   therefore,   gratifying  to   the  advocates of forest preservation, to-the producers of oil.and to those dependent on  an inexhaustible source of cheap fuel  supply.  That Kitchener Built. . l  > Lord'Kitchener's railroad in South Africa has a mileage bf 779   miles   from  the   Soudan   northward. "Its   earnings  last year, were $732,755*. 'The net'earnings, however,"were but ?174',290.   The  percentage    of ��� working  * expenses ' to  gross arningsVaV 77 per cent,' and that  is doing pretty- well over an absolute  desert.*. It makes us a little jealous to  have that called lord Kitchener's railroad, because 'when Kitchener's expedition was1 announced ,we suggested the  road to Great Britain, ,and we believe it.  ,was   on    our   suggestion   that  it"1 was  'built. , When Gordon was i In-peril, Eng-  'landisent an expedition'to help,.only to  have it run down and almost annihilate  ed in the desert.    It was-the Tribune'  that told-them to push the locomotive  into that desert1 at the head of the next  army; ''something that 'the heat would  not overcome; something that the wild  Dervishes   could ** shiver   their ''lances  against in   vain. ' It' pointed   out-how  wild 'was   thought ~the   experiment   to  build the old Union and Central Pacific  railroad, by careful*business men; how  they said that the men would not live  long enough'to see the road pay for the  babbit metal im the 'boxes of the cars,  but - how civilization followed it;  how  the-wild, beast and the wilder men retired'before it;, how Indian'wars were  stopped;  how civilization' followed and  began,     building, .'up.,   her    temples,  until . an     oasis    .was  . made    clear  across    that   part    of   the .continent  which was formerly- looked upon  as ��� a  desert. - Just'-.'asriwet.-had- finished  the'  article,    a. distinguished . editor   from  Sidney; Australia, came' by on the* way  to the "qiieen's jubilee/*He-came loHhe  office, got the paper >and! said'he would  lay.the,matter before'the-.lords of the  admiralty and the lords, of the army,  and "about"three^months 'afterwards it  was������' stated [that-- lord!   Kitchener   was'  going'to .begin his march for j the Soudan, and was -going to push the locomotive 'before;, him.-.We ^suspect* that "the  Sidney  editor   stole, our, thunder,.��� but  anyway, the road is built,'the Dervishes  are overthrown, the Soudan is captured,  and England, in her-thrifty way, is.- beginning, to''pick._up��trade in that country. The account says that the^Kerma  line,-which  extends ^up  the>-river, towards  Dongola,  carries  a heavy  date  freightage iji the fall'months, and tho  main line, extending'from Wady Haifa  to  Khartoum.' carries' gum' arabic'a'nd  other tropical*products of Egypt. Dongola'sends some"wheat also -to ��� Khartoum. Improved cars are now running  and a large tourist business is'expected  -this coming winter. And'England, looking-over the results, does not. count tho  small profits, but does count the tre-  vmendous expenses which were formerly incurred in transportation across the  desei ts by "-camels. If the present tonnage were charged at camel rates, the  m  Mail orders receive pur* prompt J  and careful atteh-f  tion.  JACOB DOVER,  , C. P. R.

The end of the rope  was under the end of the plank  and Young attempted to free it. He  evidently imagined the rope end was  very fast, as he braced himself on his  feet in order to give it a tug. There being nothing but the weight of the plank  holding it, the rope end came away  much easier than Young expected, and  he lost his footing and staggered backwards across the deck of the steamer  in the direction of the gangway opposite to that from which the landing was  to be made. This was protected by a  chain at a sufficient height to prevent  anyone from going overboard in an ordinary manner, but as Young came up  to it the force'with which he was coming-doubled his body up and he fell  in under it and dropped into the lake.  It is thought .tliat in striking the chain  the unfortunate man was stunned. The  body rose to'the surface but Young appeared to be unconscious. Life preservers were thrown to him but he made ro  effort to help * himself, and it is said  when his body came to the surface one  of his legs showed above the water, but  his bead was under. The steamer's life  boat was at'once ordered out, and those  on board agree that the crew got it  lowered away ih remarkably quick time,  something less than _ minute being required to perform the feat, the proficiency being doubtless due to the regular drills and' exercises through, which  the crew is put every week. Quick as  the me,n were, however, they were not  quick enough to render any assistance  to the drowning' man, as he did not  rise to the surface more than once and  after a fruitless, search the work of recovering the* body' was abandoned until the,following morning.  George Young, the victim of the accident was well' known in Nelson, having resided in'this city for a number of  years., He was employed about town  chiefly as a laborer, and for a time was  treasurer of'the Nelson Laborers' Protective Association. Some time ago he  decided to pre-empt a piece of land near  the * narrows, ''and" at the time of his  death had his home there with his wife  and family of four small children. It was  with a view Vo securing money for living expenses' that he sought..employment on the steamer as a,.deckhand,  the land uponr which he had settled not  being sufficiently cultivated to maintain  him. ' r    ���.   .   '  When it was made known on the  steamer that the victim of the accident,  had a large family dependent upon him  for support, tbe officers and -passengers  at once started a subscription for the'  relief of the'widow ana orphans,, with  the result that a purse of ?110 was  raised in a few minutes. The news of  her bereavemtnt was broken to the  widow by captain Fraser of the Kokanee. Captain Gore, port captain, ot the  C. P. R. fleet, left for the scene of the  fatality yesterday on the tug Procter.  He has a number of men with him and  will grapple for the body as long as  there is any chance of recovering it.  From the circumstances as related  by witnesses of the accident, it was one  of those accidents which no fqresight  _coul<. have    prevented.    There __were  plenty about to "help the victim and  everything appeared ravorablo for getting him out of the water, but the  man was evidently stunned so that he  could not avail himself of the aid extended to him and sank too quickly to  permit of his rescue, although less than  a minute elapsed between the time he  went overboard and the launching of  the small boat from the'steamer.

The properties affected by the suit are on the Freddie Lee  mountain in the Slocan.  Another interesting case that will  be on the list is that of Van Norman  vs. McNaught. This case will be of interest in that it will decide the point in  the Mineral Act brought to light in the  attempt of the plaintiff Van Norman' to  take in execution the interest of J. A.  Mackinnon in the Hampton group of  claims. McNaught, the defendant in the  present suit, was a co-owner with Mackinnon in the Hampton group and he  set up a claim to the Mackinnon interest  by reason of the fact that after his interest in the property had been seized  toy the sheriff, Mackinnon allowed his  free miners' certificate to lapse. In the  present suit the court will be asked to  determine the effect upon the Mackinnon  interest by reason of his having allowed  his license to run out.  ..AT THE HOTELS.,  HUME���B. E.

Stanley, on tbe  Midge Fractional.  , Company Must Pay Up  Ii the case  of  J_attoni  vs.  Western  Canadian Accident and Beneyplent Association, -judge  Forin  yesterday  gave  judgment for the plaintiff with costs. In  this suit the plaintiff, Michael Zattoni,  a miner formerly employed at the Athabasca mine, sued the defendants for $56  as representing the   amount  due   him  from the defendants upon an aocldent  policy.   His evidence was that while he  was working at the mine on the 14th of  December last he'was induced by their  agent to take out  an  accident  policy.  With his application on that   date   he  paid the agent ?11, of which $5 represented the first cost of the policy and $6  the dues under it for three months.   He  did not receive his receipt from the insurance company until about the end of  December, it bearing date of the 23rd,  but on the 24th of December he slipped  on the Athabacsa trail and broke one of  the bones in his hand.   As a result of  the accident he was   incapacitated   for  work for four weeks  and  three   days.  The policy for his insurance, however,  was dated on December 25th, one day  after the accident and the claim was resisted on the grpund that the plaintiff  was not entitled to recover a.ijy benefits  until the policy   was   issued.   A   npte-  worthy feature of the case was that tbe  company's receipt for the first premium  was dated on a Sunday and the policy  bore date of Christmas day. Judge Forin  held that the plaintiff was entitled to  insurance from the date that his application yas accepted by the defendant  company's figenfc and be gave judgment  for the plaintiff with epsfcs,   It is likely  that the costs \yili equal "the ft*pm.nt 0.  the claim.   .R.

The civil list of cases for the approaching assizes is growing. Yesterday there were four cases added whloh  are of sufficient importance to occupy as  many days of the sitting. One of these,  Sandilands vs. Warner, is an action for  a commission on the sale of mining  property. In it the plaintiff, E. M.  Sandilands of Sandon, vno is described  as a mining broker, is suing W. W. Warner and the Coin Mining and Development Company for a commission of  $2500 upon the sale of the Mountain  Coin group of claims, situate in the  Ainsworth and Slocan mining divisions.  The plaintiff in his pleadings sets out  that he had an arrangement with the defendants whereby if he succeeded in effecting a sale of the group for $15,000  cash or upon a bond for $25,000 he  should be paid a commission of 10 per  cent. He alleges that through his agenoy  the group yas bonded \o a man named  Graham, as the~ representative of R, G,  Tatlow of Vancouver for $25,000, and  he is therefore suing for a commission  of $2500.  The case of Carmiehael vs. Egan is  an action brought by D. A. Carmiehael  and E. P. Burns of Sandon against Annie Egan and William Stutt, chief of police of Sandon, for illegal distress. The  plaintiffs in the action are suing for $800  damages against the owners of the property |n ���yyhiqh they cfttr-led on business.  There are two cases of Dooksteader vs,  Botsford, but as they appear to be very  much alike it is probable that one of  them will be withdrawn, The cases are  in the nature of an adverse, the plain*  tiffs as the owners of the Colonial mineral claim asking for a declaration ot  FINISH AND  PRICES IN  MILLINERY,  ETC., CALL  ON  MRS.
