 ESABLISHED  1892  'iUESDAY  MORNING,  JANUARY 7,   1902  DAILY EDITION  THE   TIMES   NOT  AFRAID  OF AMERICA.  GERMAN SHIPBUILDING EXPERT  SAYS  AMERICA  LEADS  THE WORLD.  LONDON, January 6.���The Times  this morning devotes a long editorial  to a review of the economic situation  In the United States, in which it takes  tho view that, in spite of the apparently  tremendous material progress made in  America of recent years, this progress  is insufficient to warrant the view of its  economic results taken either hy sanguine Americans or timid Europeans.  The Times contends that the recent  prosperity has led to over investing, and  that the fact that exchange during the  past autumn remained in favor of Loudon tends to show that the balance of  trade is not in favor of tho United  SUit.es.  BERLIN, January C. ���.Theodore  Schwartz, a German naval constructor,  who was recently sent to the United  ���'������' States by the marine general staff to  investigate ship building there, has submitted his report. The investigator  says that materials for the construction  A? of steel ships are lower in price in the  \. United States than in any other country,  and the only thing to be complained of  I.; is the fluctuations in prices, which  I'y'^akes competition with foreign ship  builders difficult. He refers to the splen-  [���{ did body of American workmen earning  I;' wages from 30 to 50 per cent higher  t'l than those paid in Great Britain and  It ]00 per cent higher, than the wages paid  \i on . the continent. Schwartz reports  |? that notwithstanding the wages paid  freighters are being built on the great  \t lakes as cheaply as tramp steamers are  I; built in Great Britain. The new consol-  |"j idation of ship building companies in  ./the United.States, he says, is the larg-  \t est and richest in the world, and that  [!; it will devote its resources to economic  \yship building. In conclusion, he says:  'We see, therefore, that Ihe Americans  P are striving with all the means at their  command to put.their ship building industry in a position to successfully corns' pete with the long established ship  U builders on the ono hand and on the  I':; other with the younger but rapidly de-  [J.veloping ship builders of Germany.  What the Canal May Cost.  PHILADELPHIA,    January    6.���Pro-  !' fessor Lewis M. Haupt, a member of the  Isthmian  Canal  Commission,  does not  agree with  the reports from Washing-  ', ton  to  the  effect  that  the  Nicaragua  V canal may cost $1,000,000,000.  'tThat is a very extravagant statement,'' said Mr'. Haupt yesterday, when  he had read the dispatch. "There is  nothing in it. A commission of experts  who went over the ground carefully and  =corisidered-=ever-y-poiut-declared_th-_canal could be completed for $189,000,000.  My personal judgement is that the canal  need not cost the government that much  money.  "Taking the quantity of material to  be removed and the character of this  material, as ascertained by the various  borings, with a fair unit price for the  ��� actual cost by hand labor, the price is  higher than it should he under systematic management. In making our estimates we placed them at figures whicli  are higher than I think is necessary,  and in addition allowpd 20 per cent for  contingencies.  "Our estimates aro based on hand labor. Of course, machinery will be us-d  extensively, and that will materially  lower the cost of construction. The estimate of the old Nicaragua Canal Commission, which was dissolved two years  ago, was $11S,000,000 for a 30-foot canal.  Our present estimate of *-jlS9,000,000 is  for a 35-foot canal.  "This commission was appointed to  consider every possible route and to exhaust the' subject. This we have done.  AVe do not advocate anything, but  simply get tlie facts, arrange them for  presentation to the proper authorities  and draw some logical conclusions. If  this sort of talk is have any weight we  will never get a canal."  Professor Haupt said that one reason  why the Panama Canal cost so much  money was that a large part of the expenditures was eaten up in fees and  ;'bankers' commissions. If the United  :. States government builds a canal across  ; the isthmus it will not be under any such  ���:' expenses.  1 Peddler Fights the Trust.  CLEVELAND, Ohio, January 6.���The  ; clash between the Standard Oil inter-  ; ests and the citizens and merchants of  ?the little village of Chardon, Ohio, is  beginning to reach an acute stage. War  has been on for nearly four weeks, and  during that time not a merchant in the  town has been known to purchase a  gallon of the Rockefeller product. Last  Saturday a driver for the Standard Oil  wagon, named King, was arrested for  peddling without a license. He will  have a hearing on the case in a few days,  and in the meantime has paid $5 into  the village treasury tor a temporary  license good for the intervening time.  It is said that he has not sold enough  oil in Chardon since the fight began to  cover this amount.  The trouble started when Melvin  Hossler, a poor oil peddler, ceased to  purchase from the Standard Oil Company and began to patronize an independent concern. Tlie Standard sent an  agent into Chardon to negotiate with  the local merchants to close him out of  business. Hossler was a fellow-townsman and very popular, and the merchants and citizens sided with the peddler.  Trust people then sent a wagon to  Chardon with instructions to sell to the  farmers in contingent territory at prices  that, would bring the opposition to  terms. This plan also proved a failure,  and Hossler continues to monopolize the  trade of the community. The Standard  oil wagon recently resorted to the plan  of hitching up before a store and soliciting business from the farmers as  they came in.  Merchants have resented this action,  and the trouble culminated Saturday in  the arrest of King. The latter says he  has orders to continue his present* tactics for eight years. It is said that the  oil peddler has been asked if he would  accept a flattering offer to relinquish the  fight, but he remains indifferent to all  overtures.  NO TRUTH IN THE WORLD'S STORY  Duismuir Has No Intention of Resigning,  VICTORIA,   Janiary   6.���[Special   to   The   Tribune.]���The Vancouver World, ons of  E. V. Bodwell's newspaper organs, circulated the rumor that premier Dunsmuir had sent  in his resignation and recommended the lieutenant-governor to call on Mr. Bodwell to  form a government. The World yarn is so absurd that the Times of this city, which also  supports Bodwell, scouts! it, and says that Mr. Dunsmuir has no intention of resigning.  It says, however, that an attempt is being made to patch up a truce between Dunsmuir  and the recalcitrant Conservatives like Garden and McBride.  returns ho will hear the application of any  person who claims to have been left off  the voters' list improperly.  SPLIT INTO TWO FACTIONS  Over Best Course to Adopt.  PEKIN, January 6.���The Chinese officials have requested the ministers of  the powers to keep the legation guards  within their quarters tomorrow in order  to prevent the possibility of a collision  between the Chinese and foreign troops.  The ministers will comply.    The families of the foreign diplomats will occupy  buildings which the Chinese government  lias tendered them for the purpose of  viewing the parades in connection with  the return of the court-to Pekin. There  is much criticism at this course among  the foreigners,  who   are   not   satisfied  that the ministers alone will remain in  the legations.    They   believe   that   the  event   should   be   completely   ignored.  They say the presence of any members  of the legations will be construed as being a* sort of homage and will be thus  proclaimed among the-people.   The foreigners are divided   into   two  factions  concerning the future relations of the  diplomats with the court, one of them  holding that they should be limited to  the fulfillment of the most formal obligatory ceremonies, and th'e other holding that in official and social relations  the   ministers   should   endeavor  to be  more intimate.with the court-than formerly and should meet all Chinese advances in the most friendly spirit. Many  foreign soldiers and a few officers today  violated   the   governments   request   to  keep off the streets which   have   been  cleaned   and   decorated   for   the  royal  procession.   This is likely to create resentment.      Railroad    traffic    between  Pekin and Pao Ting Fu, except on the.  court's   business,   has   been   congested  since the arrival   of the ..court  at   Pao  Ting Fu.    Special ��� trains for  two days  past have been bringing the court's baggage here. Official business monopolizes  the telegraph lines and the postal service to Pao Ting Fu.  What the Majority Should Be.  TORONTO,   January   6.���The   Westminster, the organ of the Presbyterian  church publishes the views of  various  'leading-clergy "given-in^repiy to=the"fol-=  lowing question:   "In the event of a ref ���  c-i cridum being decided upon by the Ontario government should a bare major  it-, of the votes cast determine the issue  or should a certain proportion in favor  of such legislation be required?   If more  than the majority is deemed necessary  Ml-at, in your opinion should the pro  p'.ition be?  Principal Caven of Knox college, says  wrtainly not less than three-fourths of  tl:c total vote polled.  Chancellor Wallace, hejad of McMastov,  said it would be perilous to enact pro-  hibtion if only a bare majority of t'aa  people of Ontario.voted for it. He suggested that a two-thirds majority might  it sufficient, but even then it would not  be well to enact such a law if the minority included a large respectable element.  Chancellor Burwush of Victoria, suggested two-thirds' of all voters and  urftca that the tempeiance sentiment  had gone back of late years.   .     'A  Principal Sheraton of WyClii'fe (An-  glica), said the majority should not  be less than three-fourths.  Rev. Dr. Potts suggests from '60 to 75  per cent. .;  I'.ev. Dr. Warden, 'reasurer of tne  Presbyterian church, suggested a two-  t'.irt'.s majority. '     ���'  DID NOT GET ON THE LIST  Vancouver Locxl News.

The somewhat celebrated application  of the thirty-four men of Slocan City  to be placed on the municipal voters'  list of Slocan, as the joint owners of  two $50 lots, came up before judge Forin  yesterday. The facts as disclosed upon  the application were that tlie names of  the applicants had been placed upon the  list by the city clerk, but upon the revision of the same by mayor York th-y  were struck off by reason of the fact  that the names of the thirty-four men  did not appear on the last revised assessment roll as called for by the municipal act, which is the basis upon  which the voters' list should be built.  W. A. Galliher, M. P., appeared for  the applicants and urged that they had  been improperly left off by mayor York,  but the merits of .the case', as to  whether under the municipal act an unlimited number of persons can qualify  as municipal.voters -upon one or two  cheap lots, was not gone into.  R. S. Lennie, who opposed the application that the names should go upon  the list, took some preliminary objections. One of these was that the appli-.  cants had no status to make the application in that they merely claimed.to  be property owners and', not assessed  owners. This was held by the court .'.o  bo fatal to the applicants and their ap-  plication was refused.  Another circumstance which tended  very much to complicate matters was  the fact that Slocan City, was incorporated but a few months ago, and there  was therefore, no strictly municipal assessment roll from which 16 make up  the voters' list of property owners. A  few weeks ago the Slocan municipal  council undertook to remedy this by  holding a court of revision, but they  made the mistake of levying an assessment for the year 1902, which was quite  beyond their powers, and the move was  dropped. W. A. Galliher contended that  while the council for 1901 had no right  to levy a rate for 1902 it was within its  powers in endeavoring to get at a basis'  in this manner for the framing of a  voters' list. The court .held, however,  that in such a case the provincial assessment roll should be the basis.  _-_rhere^was-_one-_othei*__-application,,  Peter Shomberg applying to be put on  the list as a license holder. His name  was struck off the list by mayor York  on the ground that he was an alien, but  he had since become a naturalized subject. In his case it was pointed out that  the act did not contemplate any cases  save such as names improperly left off  the list. He had not his certificate as  a naturalized British subject at the time  the list was revised by the mayor and  therefore had not, been improperly left  off the list. His application, therefore,  was also refused.   May Go to Winnipeg.  The Nelson Curling Club has abandoned the scheme of sending representative rinks to the Calgary bonspiel.  When this was first proposed it was un-  derstood# that the Calgary event would  be pulled off on the 2lst instant, but hy  the time a meeting of the Nelson club  was convened last evening it was ascertained that the Calgary bonspiel had  been postponed until February 4th.  This shifting of the date threatened to  conflict with some of the Kootenay fixtures for the season and the trip to Calgary was dropped in consequence. The  local men did not relish being done out  of a chance to try conclusions with some  of the eastern clubs and the suggestion  was made that representatives be sent  to the Winnipeg bonspiel which comes  off earlier than that at Calgary. The  expense of going to Winnipeg would be  but little greater than the trip to Calgary and the suggested change was  warmly received. On motion of Joh?i  Rae, seconded hy P. E. Wilson it was  resolved that, instead of providing the  customary banquet with the proceeds of  the president and vice-president, club  competition, such funds be used to defray the expenses of sending representative rinks to Winnipeg if the club  should so decide.  It was also resolved upon motion of  J. H. Wallace, seconded by J. A. Turner,  that a committee composed of W. A.  Macdonald, judge Forin, A. H. Buchanan, P. E. Wilson, and Frank Tamblyn be appointed to discuss ways and  means.  The matter of deciding who should  represent the club at Winnipeg was, on  motion of judge Forin, seconded by R.  Weir, referred to a committee composed of J. A. Turner, J. F. Weir, N. A.  McLeod and Frank Tamblyn. The  work\of this committee will be largely  that of ascertaining the names of club  memljers who could make it convenient  to vi_t Winnipeg.   .  German Student Murdered.  BERLIN, January G.���Full narratives of  the diiel fought last Thursday at Jena, in  the dtchy of Saxe-Weimar Eisenach, in  whichj lieutenant Thieme of the 94th regiment killed a student, named Held, of  Hallo tlniversity, by shooting him through  the heJirt, are producing a deep sensation  througnout Germany. Lieutenant Thieme is  the bek pistol shot of his regiment, and  pistols\aro selected by the'court of honor,  which itipulated that five shots should be  exchanged. Hold was killed at the third  exchange of shots. The duel resulted from  a part-i of students having jostled some  army officers on the street. Held was'wlth  the students and he slapped the lieutenant's fate, who was in "plain clothes. About  the same time that the court of honor was  arranging the place for duel, emperor  William] was receiving New Year's congratulations from the German generals.  According to gossip current in military  messes, i the emperor on this occasion  talked for several minutes about duelling.  Emperor William is also credited with having said that if in 1902 there occurred duels  similar to some which hadUaken place in  1901, he would demand resignations.  Investigating the Looting of a Bank.  LONDON, January G.���Wlten 'the'-hear-  liearing of the charges of.fraud brought  In connection with the robbery of the Bank  of Liverpool was resumed trilay at the Bow  street police court, associates of Lawri  Marks .and James .Mances.' the American  bookmakers, testified to ttieir sudden departure for the continent-land, their sub-  seciuent-Tiov-inciitM' in Paris. -3uL tire wit-"  nesses denied any knowledge of their  movements after that.

Marks told the witness he was  going to Monte Carlo. The manager of a  hotel, a woman, testilied that when Marks  bade her farewell, he remarked: "Probably  you will never see my miserable face  again."  '  The Deed of a Crazy Man.

Newfoundland, January fi.���  The colonial authorities enturatin the hopo  that the British government does not expect a renewal of the French shore modus  Vivendi (which expired December 31st, 1901)  for the current year. They consider that  this arrangement has proved a very great  drawback to the welfare of the colony,  and that its renewal would prolong the  vexatious phases of the French question  for a further period. Were it not for the  Boer war, there is little doubt but that  the colony would refuse to renew this  measure. Even as it is, there is a strong  element in the upper house of the legislature which is opposed to the renewal of  this arrangement under any circumstances.  Anti Toxin Cures Locls-jaw.  TRENTON, New Jersey, January 6.���  AVilliam Chumar of this city, is the subject of considerable attention from the  medical profession at this time, because  of the fact that he has been cured of lockjaw in the St. Francis hospital here.  Three weeks ago while assisting in the  moving of a piano his finger was badly  lacerated. The usual home remedies were  applied, but lockjaw set in. The treatment  given Chumar by Dr. Martin Reddan of  the hospital staff, was explained by him as  follows:  '���The patient was given sixty centimeters  of tetanus antitoxin, fifteen centimeters at  an injection. The serum was injected in  the thick;muscles of the back by the aid  of a large antitoxin syringe. There was  an improvement within two days, the patient being gradually freed from the awful  cramp.  "The theory of this treatment is based on  tetanus being a germ disease, and the  serum killing the germ.  "I believe the patient will ultimate!v recover. There have been used in this treatment, which is absolutely new, two vials  of antitoxin serum, at a cost of $10 a vial.  St. Francis hospital has had three cases  of tetanus within two years, two recovered  and one died. Tn the case of the one death  the antitoxin was applied too late."  The Suez Oil Field-,  LONDON, January C���The reported discovery of petroleum In Egypt near Suez Is  expected to bring about as great financial  flutter in English cities as the discovery in  Texas created in the eastern cities of the  United States. The Egyptian finds were  made by operators working for the Petroleum Syndicate, and tho oil sand was  struck at a depth of 2115 fct. An explosion  of gas followed and blocked up the well.  The prospectors argue that the presence  of gas points to the existence of an extraordinary supply of petroleum.  This discovery is expected to open up a  very extensive oil territory, and its development is expected to be of great Importance to Egypt ana to British commerce. The existence of oil in the Sue-  section has long been suspected, and it is  said that indications appeared on the surface of. the' water during the construction  of the Suez canal.  The fact that gas has been encountered  goes to show that oil will be found in such  quantities as will warrant the sinking of  wells. The fact that American wells have  frequently reached a depth of 3000 feet  gives the promoters of the new field considerable-en _ouragcmcnt._Jt-is-expectpd_i>u  the case of a large production of oil, to  make the new district a source of supply  for oil-burning steamers passing through  tho canal.  There was a short session o_ the city  council last night. The mayor was not  present; all tlie aldermen were. Alderman  Hamilton occupied the chair. The voters'  list was discussed informally, the discussion bringing out the fact that mistakes,  no doubt, had been made by -the printer,  and that they would be corrected at once.  E. B. McDermid, accountant for the Duncan United Mines, Limited, has opened  Offices in the Clements-HIIlyer block and  will carry on business as an expert accountant and assignee. He will handle  anything in the way of regular and special audits, contract bookkeeping, special  examinations of commercial concerns, as--  signraents, settlements, winding up estates, etc. During eleven years spent in  commercial work with the wholesale trade  in the east, Mr. McDermid received a  thorough training along these lines which  has well fitted hini for his present venture. Since coming to Nelson his work  with the Duncan Mines and as city auditor have won for him a well deserved reputation, so that his success is already as-,  sured.

January G.���  A report was received of a bold attempt  to hold up a Baltimore & Ohio express  train which left here at 11 o'clock last  night for Chicago. The scene of the attempt was Swanton, an isolated spot on  the 17-miie grade In the Alleghanles, about  45 miles west of here. The operator, J. M.  Sarsfield, states that five men came Into  his ollice and ottered him candy. Then one  of the men struck him over the head and  he became insensible. The men then turned  a switch, running the express into a siding  used for freight trailic. The application of  brakes prevented the train from being  ditched.

WASHINGTON, January 6.���The senators and representatives of the Pacific  coast who have heen considering a bill  for Chinese exclusion have perfected a  measure which will be introduced in  both houses in a few days. It is much  more comprehensive than any bills that  have been presented heretofore on this  subject, most of which simply provided  for excluding Chinese or re-enacting the  Geary law. The bill under consideration  does not limit itself to any term of  years, as did the Geary act, but if passed  in its present form would be 'perpetual  unless repealed. The bill declares that  all Chinese, other than citizens of the  United States or those who are secured  in coming to and residing in'the United  States under the present treaty with  China, shall be refused admission and  returned to the country whence they  came at tlie expense of the transportation company bringing'them. The" only  Chinese, persons .permitted lo enter the  United States under the act are these  who have become citizens by birth and  naturalization and uiricials of the  Chinese government, teachsrs, students,  merchants, travelers for pleasure- or curiosity, returning laborers,, who must  have certificate, or domiciled merchants.  No Chinese except diplomatic or consular officers are allowed to enter the  United States at any other ports than  San Francisco, Port. Townsend, Portland, Boston, New York, New Orleans,  Honolulu, San Juan, and Manila. Ports  may.be designated on the Canadian or  Mexican boundary after contracts have  been made with the transportation lines  to comply with the act. Provision is  made for the registration of all Chinese  now in the United States to be completed within six months after the passage  of this act. All registered Chinese  shall have a certificate with photographs attached, and. those without certificates at the end of six months shall  be deported.  Compulsory Arbitration.  MEXICO CITY, January 6.���It is thought  now that the arbitration question in the  -Pan-Arnerlcaii^eongress^will-^be'determined^  ono way or another either tomorrow or  AVedncsday. Whether or not the solution  will be the dirsuption of the conference  will depend on what the ten delegations  who favor compulsory arbitration will accept a compromise measure to be offered  to them tomorrow on lines .suggested by  W. J. Buchanan of the United States delegation. Tho. Mexican delegation,-however,  will present tho compromise.

They  have agreed that candidate Fletcher  alone must make the race; that with  Fletcher and LaBau both in the field  the enemy would have a walkover. The  rallying cry of the two factions is now  said to be "Down With One-Man  Power!*' "White" Men Will not be  Slaves!" As the only man in Nelson  who has been a candidate at every  election held in Nelson since the town'  was incorporated is now the candidate  of these factions, their rallying cry is  like their party���a misfit.  ���I-M'M-M-H-M-I*-*  The voters' list for the coming civic  election is printed in today's Tribune.  The names of many well-known citizens   do_.iiot'_appear.���Tbe���reasons���for���the  omission of their names can, no doubt,  be given by the mayor and the city oilicial who compiled the list. If the letter  of the law had been strictly followed,  many names on the list would not be  on. If the law is not to be strictly followed, why make fish'of one and fowl  of another? The Tribune has no desire to cast reflections on any one. An  election is a game, and the points in the  game must be watched. One of the  points is for players to see that their  names are on the voters' list.  The men who are supporting candidate Kirkpatriek are not of one class or  of one nationality. They represent all  classes and all nationalities. Those who  are supporting him are not doing it  with the understanding that they shall  have a position in the city offices, or  contracts for city supplies, or special  privileges in the way of immunity from  city taxation. They are supporting him  because he is a young man who has  shown his faith ia the town, and because he is a successful and honorable  business man.  American Trusts Growth.  Census statistics Just made public  on industrial combinations, show a total' authorized capitalization May 3lst,  1900, for 183 corporations reported, of  $3,607,539,200, and the capital stock issued $3,085,200,868. Of this total the  authorized capital includes $270,127,250  in ! bonds, $1,259,540,900 in preferred  stock and $2,077,871,050 common stock.  The capital stock issued comprises $216,-  412,759 in bonds, $1,066,525,963 in preferred stock and $1,802,262,146 common  stock.  The total value of all the products of  the combinations reported is $1,661,-  295,364. The 183 corporations reported  emploj'ed an average of 339,192 wage-  earners, receiving $194,534,715 in wages.  Employment also was given to 24,583  ^salariecL-_officials.^clerks, -etc., receiving,  a total of $32,653,62- in.salaries.  Miscellaneous expenses of these coni-  binat'ons aggr-^ated $151,851,077. Total  cost of material used was $1,085,083,828.  Thf gross "value of products, less ihe  value of material purchased in partly  ni-*r.ufacturrd form, gives the net value  of product-; of these combinations as  $1,051,981.  The 183 corporations reported control  2029 plants that were active during the  census year, and 174 reported as idle  during that period. The returns show  an average of 11 active plants to each  corporation. Of these industrial combinations 63 were organized prior to  1897, and in the years 1897, 1898, 1S90,  t'nti prior to June 30th, 1900, there were  organized 7, 20, 79, and 13 corporations,  respectively. Over 50 per cent of the  total number of such corporations were  chartered during the 18 months, from  J-nuary 1st, 1899,   to June   30th,   1900.  The statistics of industrial combinations exclude all corporations manufacturing and distributing gas and electric  lijrht and power, it b-jng impossible to  trace all of the latter.  The returns show that the iron and  steel inoustry is at the head of the list,  with a gross product of $508,626,482,  which is more than double the value of  that of any other group except food and  kindred products, and represents nearly  C. P. R. Holds the Key.  Cumulative evidence tends to strengthen the rumors to the effect that a road  will be built up   the St. Marys   valley  next summer, and at the present writing it looks as if both Shaughnessy and  Hill had their eye on the gun.   It is conceded oy all who have studied the railway situation in western British Colli tibia., that. Jim Hill intends to go after  his share of the business in East and  West Kootenay.   He will have a line to  tap Elko and the coal fields at Morrissey and Fernie when his Elko-Jennings  road is completed.    He already has two  to reach Kootenay lake, one terminating at Nelson, the other at Kuskonook.  By connecting these lines in East and  West Kootenay, he would be placed in  a position to say something about rates  and business for these two prosperous  sections. This connecti-n could be easily  made by building from Elko to Marysville and then on up the valley on the  charter already secured, and   there   is  reason to believe that he is seriously  contemplating this very move.    On the  other hand the C. P. R. holds the key  to the traffic situation in West Kootenay,  and  by  building the Crow's line,  dicve in the wedge in East Kooienay.  It is pretty generally understood that  tho C. P. R. does not propose to take  the chances in East Kootenay that it did  in West Kootenay, for competition cost  it a lot of money.    Its field at Fernie  and Morrissey is being invaded by Hill,  and it realises   that   the   lesources of  South East Kootenay will prove attractive to that shrewd railroad operator,  who is strengthening the Great North-  ��'ii by the construction of feeders that  tap the rich countries tributary to that  line.    Therefore, it is not strange that  the: C. P. R. proposes to protect itself in  a section that it has been guarding with  j( alous - care, and that is why the idea  is generally accepted that this company  v. ill begin (-operations in the St. Marys  valley just as soon as the opening of  spring will  permit.    This  is  the news  that, comes from   various   sources,   the  authenticity of which   can   hardly   be  questioned    by    reasonable    minds. ���  Marysville Tribune.

Savings Bank Branch  ODRKENT BATE OF INTKREflT PAID,  IS A GREAT GAiN~FOR~_ABGR  Army of Equal Rights at Work.  The fact that secretary Easluy .of the  Industrial Court of Arbitration has  opened permanent headquarters in New-  York, city, with a view to actual work  along the lines agreed upon in the nnieh-  written-ahout "labor and capital" conference recently held in that city, invites serious and careful consideration  of tho project.  Shearing the subject, of all tho wild  and nonsensical chatter about the absolute prevention of strikes in the future and the commencement of a golden  peace between labor and capital, let us  view the matter from its common-sense  aspects.  To tho man who has followed the pro-  gross of the industrial movement for  the past few years the first extraordinary feature of the labor and capital  conference in New York was tlie meeting on terms of at least outward cordiality and equality of men holding commanding rank in the trades union world  with men who are call-vl "captains of  industry," but who up to comparatively  recently wero openly hostile to organized labor, and would in no way treat  with-it. Mere these- two elements met  in a kind of public love feast, making  speeches flowing with milk and honey,  and protesting-mutual respect and confidence; and all this in open assemblage, with large numbers of representative--men of other \valks of life present, and a newspaper press reporting  the proceedings down to the last utterances The monopoly magnates meeting in friendly discourse with the leaders of the greatest of the trade unions  with a view to effecting a board of examination into future industrial disagreements in the larger fields of labor  was dramatic, if not sensational. What  could it.mean? Was the natural question. The "great employers" have .hitherto not been, animated by extravagant  love for labor unionism. Could this be  intended for a trap, a scheme to snare  the more important leaders and hold  them as hostages for the good conduct,  of their followers? Or since the United  States senator Hanna, the leader of the  national Republican party organization,  was made the chairman of the permanent body of arbitration���the committee  of 36, as it is also called���could it he  that the main purpose of this getting  together of tho representatives of "labor  and capital" was nothing more than n  political move under a mask?  TO USB LABOR ORGANIZATIONS.  Men's motives are usually complex. A  subtle mingling of reasons precede most  important actions. But in this conference I am persuaded that tho leading  motive that influenced "capital," so-  called, was not the hope of taking advantage of labor, but the. desire to raise  laior organizations as r, uefeuse against  _an aggressiveness of the. body of the  ���' peojio against speciarin-ivilBges^These-  "grctt employers" are truly great employers, but they are more than that.  Tley are in possession of very valuable  p-ivileges of one kind or another. The  Tttblic mind is now opening to an in-  qiiry into all forms of privilege, and  prticularly those forms which have tho  Mine of "trust," and which bear with  such obvious burden upon the masses  of the community. Legislation, some recent decisions of the courts and tin- contents of a large part of the press and the  periodicals indicate increasing interest  of the general public in this subject and  a disposition to abolish privileges, or "i"  allowing them continued life, to subj��-c*  them to substantial burden, lt is said  that there is nothing so timid as money,  and if we take privilege as one .of- the  forms ot riches, we may surely say that  it is the most timid of all timid things.  It knows of danger by instinct, and in  tho present situation the groat trust  forms of privilege have better proof;*  than instinct can supply of real menace  to their exclusive institutions if anything like an industrial war should  break out, for that must, through the  wide extension of tlie trade union organization, involve not a few but a vast  number of workers, these in turn exerting a sympathetic influence over ?  large and increasing proportion of the  people. ��� In such circumstances would  not privilege reason thus: Better, far  better, for the trusts to make some  concessions to the labor unions���meet  their representatives in a permanent  body for conciliation, yield ground  stifliy held for many years against parleying with workmen���and thereby, perhaps, keep them quiet, than to continue  coldly along with the old habit of brusquely ordering workmen to accept  ������agreements" satisfactory to the employers?  SCHWAB'S CHANGE Off ATTITUDE  Does this not explain the present attitude of president Schwab of the Unitee-  States Steel and Iron Corporation, who  in years nast was an outspoken advocate-  of the Carnegie Company's policy o:'  bitter hostility to organizations ol  workingmen ��� a "labor crusher." in  other words? Does this not reveal ���������  sufficient motive for bis paiticipatin.'  in a kind of love feast committee, wit!  himself as ono of its members? It is r.  matter of hut a short time since Mr.  Schwab publicly and privately exni-er-.sf.d  jn plain, if polite, language his coldness; ,  WITH WHICH IS AMALGAMATED  THE  BANK  OF BRITISH COLUMBIA.

But, whereas,  of yore his words described his attitude and his actions toward banded  workmen, his recent statement was obviously made more with the intention  of appearing consistent than with the  view to raising the least objection to the  policy of friendliness and conciliation  toward all workingmen, whose good  feeling toward his company the present  threatening state of the public mind  makes necessary to have.-  "But," interpose some, "this does not  look much like what senator Hanna is  reported to have said about the chief  function of the Court of Arbitration, or  committee of 36."

The organization of capital, which  has come lo stay, was an. evolution which  was preceded by an organization of labor,  whicli also has come to stay, and the concentration of the interest ot the two sides,  which should ho friendly, not hostile, into  the hands ol" a comparatively few individuals, will be for the host interests of both.'.'  More was said, but this was the essential  part. And what does It signify"? At first  glance it might seem like an attempt of the  monopoly leaders to draw l!i_ largo undies  of labor into a kind of trust, (.��> l-e lnliu-  enced through a few labor leaders. i.:\ the  principle that it is much easier to endeavor  to find grounds of ugrement with a few  leaders than to try the arbitrament of war  with the mass of workers, l-llmlnating any  question of bribery of local labor chiefs,  this might reasonably be thought to be tho  easiest of all ways lo moot differences  with labor. Hence, this New York confidence and its consequent permanent committee of thirty-six might be thought to be  the t'u'st steps toward an attempt to do  wha bonis F. Post, in the Chicago Public  calls "Arthuri_ing tho labor movement;  that is. to resolve it Into a state similar to  that of the Brotherhood of Locomotive  Engineers, whose head, chief Arthur, keeps  in close communion with the railroad managements, which give much to the engineers in return for their refusal them-elvos  to strike, and their abstention from comfort  to others who strike.  ���But oven if the labor leaders were In  sympathy with and disposed to adopt the  Arthur plan, I think circumstances . are-  such as to make its successful carrying  out Impossible.- Arthur could succeed he-  ca.use he commanded a comparatively small  number of very highly skilled and peculiarly trusted men, who banded themselves  together In a union that should have no  communication or sympathy for any other  union or body of workmen. The Rvolher-  hood of Locomotive "Engineers says in substance: "Wo stand for ourselves alone."  Uther labor unions are of necessity numerous, have an in,ter-V<">mmunication and  warm bond of sympathy, and they proceed  on the principle of the Knights of Labor  motto, namely, that "the injury of one is  tho concern of all." Indeed, the idea of the  solidarity of labor is not restricted to  skilled workmen,' bu,t applies as well to  the greater number of unskilled workmen.  Anv labor trust, or even approximation to  the beauracracy. to be in the least degree  successful would have to have the active  or passive approval or support ot this  enormous army of organized and unorganized workingmen, a thing not supposable  in this stirring, changing ago, whatever  might ho done at some other period, far  removed in timo and circumstance.  DJ-SIRE FOR INVESTIGATION.  1 might admit that were the spirit of inquiry not abroad, were the monopolies and  their sponsors not under serious suspicion,  and were Ihe popular mind in a state of  passivity and quietude, then perhaps some  promise of a share of the advantages of  monopoly might serve lo draw and hold  some part of tho labor unions under the  ct61Tlr"iU^yf"st)iiTc^  lion. But too many men have conceived tho  idea that there is something in monopolies fundamental out of keeping with  equal rights, and the desire for investigation is too rampant for a labor trust to be  formed.  Or, to put tho same thing in another  form: Senator Hanna speaks of the organization of capital coming to stay. Does he  include monopoly in the word "capital?"  It is not as a capitalist that Mr. Schwab,  for instance, is most notable in this matter, for tho word "capital" in the sense  of political economy, means some form of  wealth used by labor lo produce- more  wealth, and tlie word "wealth" means the  produce; of labor from land, that Is. from  the materials of nature... Capital, therefore,  comes from labor, and a factory, or steel  rail or locomotive, when used in production, is capital; but an ore- bed or a coal  Held or a railroad right of way cannot be.  Thai is a privilege. Now iauo.dU'i.Ot'i.) represents approximately tbe value of the actual capital of Mr. Schwab's Steel Trust,  using the word "capital" in Its true, economic sense; and $l,liii,,i'00,0',f' represents the  value of privilege In a total so-called capitalization  of $1,I()0,(J(JU,00(I.  So, therefore, il is far- more as a monopolist than as a capitalist Ihat Mr. Schwab  becomes a member of ihe committee of  thirty-six. If the body of the people do  not see. this In sharpness of outline, a sufficiently largely and widely scattered number do see it to point it out and give direction to that popular animus against privilege which is now beginning to change  from thought to action.  "But," it will he asked, "if tho trusts  aro endeavoring to'draw-the trade unions  info a kind of a league and covenant that  shall be. useful to privilege, what is labor  lo gel out of this committee of arbitration,  as it is called? Why did the labor leaders  go into il?" *';  My judgment is that while the. captains  of monopoly vainly seek by this means to  raise defense works betwen their domains  of privilege and the approaching popular  equal rights army, thoy have had to yield  very important ground to the trade unions.  All that the unions need to be successful  in most of their lights, when their cause  is just, is a popular hearing. The greatest  strike in recent years���The Pennsylvania  anthracite strike of WOO���was won because  John Mitchell, the strike leader, was able  to gel his case through Ihe newspapers  before tbe people. That made a public  opinion that awakened tbe politicians to  activity, aad I hey were able to use the  threat, of exposure against the railroads,  who were the real opponents to the mine  workers. The railroads feared attack on  l heir transportation or coal mining privileges or any revelation of tho hitter's  great value. This brought the extraordinary exhibition of the powerful combination  of railroads yielding to labor organization  which, when it: entered the fight, had no  money and not more than a sixteenth  part of all the mine workers in that territory iu its membership���yielding absolutely  and granting a. pi per cent increase In  wages and several other of llie most important of the men's demands.

The trusts may design to  avoid this difficulty by making ,a tool of  the unions, but even if the union leaders  were willing to be used, whicli I do not believe is the case, the masses:of the union  members would not be, and the trusts may  find that they have made a club)that will  bo used against them at the first sign of  serious trouble between them (and their  workingmen. \  And ��� that trouble may not be, far off.  Just now we are enjoying a wave of prosperity, but sooner or later the depression  under which present conditions Inevitably  follows prosperity will cause a slackened  demand for trust products. Reduced demand means reduced production. Reduced  production necessarily involves men out of  work and hard times. These conditions Invariably beget labor troubles. Then must  come an' investigation by the committee of  thirty-six, and the least exposure of trust  affairs must reveal privilege, against  which popular thought, now so strong,  will then be intensified. Messrs. Hanna,  Schwab���monopolists must take this or else  the other horn of the dilema���the trust  members of the committee of thirty-six  may refuse to act���an. attitude not likely  to quiet matters and allay thought.  _.-5��_��J8:  m   to  _rt_  to  to  to  to  KfEP OUR MODS TO LOOK AT  WE SELL AND I)-BUY  You will find our stock  complete with the most  up-to-date  FURNITURE  CARPETS  HIGH ART PICTURES  LINOLEUMS  AT LOWEST PRICES  Don't miss seeing oiir  fine line of Xmas goods.
