 ESABLTSHED   1892  Itelaon  MONDAY MORNING,  JANUARY  G,   1902  DAILY EDITION  mm ess lost  ^_lT__'  THE    SURVIVORS    R^ACH  SAN FlRANCISCO.  THE FRENCH S^mp THAT CAUS^d  THE WJ^ECK TOWED  IN'JTO PORT.  ./  '  _JV1S(  SAN FRANCISCO, January '**?%-  vioes from Eureka; California, early this  morning; indicate that the list of 'lead  and missing in the foundering of the  steamer Walla Wftlla has reached 41-  Of these eight are .known to have die*'..  The remaining 33 are probably adrift  on the ocean in two life-boats and a raft.  Of the 142 passengers and crew on the  Walla Walla, 109 are accounted for, as  follows: Eighty-four survivors are at  Eureka, 17 at Big Lagoon near Trinidad,  7 were drowned before reaching land,  and one unknown woman died from the  shock and exposure aft_r reaching shore.  This leaves 33 unaccounted for. it i<*  thought that nearly all are in boats at  sea, but it is impossible at present to obtain an accurate list of those missing,  owing to confusion and error made in  transmitting the names of the survivors  to this city for comparison with the official list.  SAN FRANCISCO, January 5.���It is  not yet known how many persons perished in the wreck of the Walla Walla.  The most conservative statement places  the number of dead at ten and the missing at thirity; another estimate is that  no less than 73 persons are yet unaccounted for. Those believed to be dead  are: Mrs. Herman Kotzschmar. wife of  lieutenant Kotzschmar; Mrs. Reynolds,  stewardess; Mrs. H. Erickson and threo  children; Louis Druby of San Francisco;  E. L. Nuttman, purser; William Bertel,  fireman; and John Wilson, also known  as Hans Anderson, quartermaster.  There are still on the ocean, as far as  known, two rafts. If either of these  have besn picked up, the number of supposed victims will be materially decreased. Sixty-two of the passengers  and crew were picked up and landed at  Eureka by the steam schooner Dispatch,  23 survivors drifted ashore near Trinidad and seventeen others were rescued  hy the tug Ranger. Captain Hall, who  went down with the vessel, but came to  the surface and was saved, thinks that  some of the missing may yet be heard  from. The fact that the bark whicti  caused the disaster did not stand by to  aid tne Walla Walla indicates to seafaring men that she must have been seriously disabled, if indeed, she remains  afloat.  EUREKA, California, January 5.���  Word has just reached here that a lifeboat from the wrecked steamer Walla  Walla containing seven passengers has  landed pafely in a big fresh water lagoon, 15 miles north of Trinidad. A  stage has been dispatched from Trinidad to return with the surviviors. Eight  other passengers who landed at tlie bis  lagoon yesterday arrived at Trinidad  =late^last^nightramong=themr-being��sec-  ond officer Luph, who was on watch at  the time of the collision. A life-boat  which left the Walla AValla with ten  persons on board arrived at Trinidad  with only nine, the wife of revenue officer Ketschnur of Tacoma having died  on board and her body was thrown overboard.  SAN FRANCISCO, January 5.���The  French hark Max, which collided with  the steamship Walla Walla early Thursday morning, is being towed to this city  in a badly disabled condition. The  steamer George W. Elder from Portland  reports that she passed the Max this  morning in tow of the steamer Acme  and the United States revenue cutter  McCulloch, IS miles northwest of Point  Reyes. The Max's bowsprit was carried  away and her bow was stove in both  above and below the water line. Her  water-tight compartment alone keeping  her afloat. Ninety-two survivors of the  Walla Walla arrived today from Eureka  on the steamer Pomona. There is still  some discrepancy in the list of the  dead and missing. This discrepancy in  the list of the dead and missing is due  to the fact that several passengers  boarded the vessel just as she was leaving port. Others who were traveling  second-class gave assumed names in  order to hide their identity. By striking out what possibly are duplicates,  the number of lost stands at 42, classed  as follows: Known dead 9, missing  passengers 13, crew 20. One life-raft ir  unaccounted for, and it is feared that  all the missing are lost.  Rev. Henry Erickson, who was among  the six survivors brought to this city  by the steamer Nome City last night, i&  at a hospital, a physical and almost  mental wreck. His wife and three children are among the dead and missing.  The Erickson family, excepting the  mother, were second-class passengers  When the crash came, they were awakened and all got on the upper deck together. Mrs. Erickson and the two  younger children were separated from  the father and elder brother. What  their fate is is not known, but it is presumed thev were drowned when the  vessel went down. Erickson and his:  son clung together and were pitched  into the water clear of the sinking vessel They floated around for some time.  and Anally were picked up by tbe life-  raft on whicli were a number of officers  of the Walla Walla. It was almost daybreak when they were found, and they  were in an exhausted condition. Father  and son were pulled on the light structure, but the boy was too weak to stand  the exposure. A few hours later he  died in his father's arms. The body was  consigned to the waves. The sea was  running high and dashing over the raft,  but all clung to it through the long  hours of the day and the night. They  hoped against hope until the Nome City  picked tliein up. Mr. Erickson was the  first to be lifted aboard. It is thought  he will recover from the terrible effect  of the exposure.  SAN FRANCISCO, January 5.���The  French bark Max, which was in collis-  sion with tho steamer Walla Walla, arrived here tonight in tow of tho steamer  Acme and the revenue cutter McCulloch.  TWO NEW FURNACES ARE READY  Will Smelt Fourteen Hundred Tons a Day.  AN IRREPRESSIBLE RIVALRY  Steamboat Men Will Eace.  The Canadian Pacific and the Great  Northern railway systems may have  traffic agreements and joint agencies  and aU sorts of understandings, but,  somehow, there is an irrepressible spirit  of rivalry between the steamboatmen  of the two companies. This rivalry  manifests itself whenever there is a  good chance to test the speed of the  boats of the two companies. The Great  Northern has. a cracker jack in the  ���steamer Kaslo, which makes daily trips  between Kaslo and Nelson, and she has  a crew who believe in her. The Canadian Pacific has several fast ones, among  the number being the Kokanee, which  was recently thoroughly overhauled in  the company's shipyard at Bogustown."  The crew of the Kokanee will not take  back water from any craft on the lake,  if they can help it, although the engineer has never- been known to order his  firemen to use any of the cargo, such as  bacon or imperial oil, to keep up steam.  As the boats do not leave Kaslo at the  same hour, they seldom get together  until they reach Five-mile point, which  is about five miles up the Outlet from  Nelson. The Great. Northern boat leaves  Kaslo thirty minutes ahead of the C. P.  R. boat, and makes a stop at Five-mile  point to connect with the southbound  train on the Nelson & Fort Sheppard  railway, and very often the stop is long  enough to allow the C. P. R. boat to  be abreast of the G. N-. boat when she  pulls out for the run to the wharf at  Nelson. On Saturday this was the case.  The Kaslo had backed out from the  lauding just as the Kokanee came along.  It is claimed she was loaded for. bear,  and was laying for the Kokanee. The  Kokanee must also have been looking  for trouble, for she was ready. The  Kaslo had the lead by a length and a  half, and as her captain is a pastmaster  in navigation he jockeyed his rival for  a time. The captain of the Kokanee  knows a think or two himself, as he has  for a long time been one of the. head  push of the party now in power at Ottawa. He pushed his boat along behind  his rival fr awhile, never losing an inch  however, and finally he pushed the  Kokanee so far into the channel that  the captain of the Kaslo quit jockeying  and made a bee-line for the wharf, lt  was a pretty race from that time on.  The Kokanee was flying light, having  little freight aboard, and she slipped  through the water with her wheel making 36 revolutions every minute. The  Kaslo had about 80 tons of ore aboard,  but it takes about 40 tons to trim her  for a race. Her wheel was making 39  revolutionseveryGO seconds, and her  engineer kept her. up to it as steadyTBT  a clock. Tlie Kokanee gained slowly  and when she crept past the Kaslo her  crew were of opinion the Kaslo was  "jollying" her. But it was no "jolly,"  and the Kokanee reached the wharf  three lengths ahead of the Kaslo.  PHOENIX, January 5.���[Special to The Tribune.]���The pay-roll at the Granby  smelter will be almost doubled within ten days. The two new furnaces are ready, and as  soon as they are connected with the blowers, they will be started up. This will give the  smelter a daily capacity of 1400 tons, and the number of men employed will run into the  hundreds. This enlargement means promotion for a number of the old employees. It is  also given out that two more furnaces have been ordered, and that they will be smelting  ore by the middle of May. The Granby plant is likely to become one of the largest on  the Pacific Coast, and its pay-roll alone will make Grand Forks a good-sized town.  cent while tho United States has 12 per  cent, and that the latter is not only increasing her trade with Canada but with  Australia. This causes some disquoltude.  Tho Standard In an editorial expresses its  disappointment In this regard nnd insists  upon the necessity of the country bestirring itself.   Total Losses  LONDON, January 5.���Tho total reduction of Great Britain's military force in  South Africa from the beginning of the  war to the end of December, including  deaths from disease and reported missing,  etc., amounts to 2-1,299 men. Of this number 1!),430 were actually killed or died. A  total of 6-1,330 men were Invalided home,  the majority of whom recovered and rejoined their commands.  STANDING FOR A PRINCIPLE  TO RESUME TODAY  BOTH   HOUSES   OF    CONGRESS WILL MEET.  ISMITHIAN CANAL QUESTION IS  THE MOST IMPORTANT ONE  TO BE CONSIDEEED.  I! N. FORD'S WEEKLY REVIEW  Excellent Progress Made.  PHOENIX, January 5.���[Special to  The Tribune.]���During the year just  passed, although there has apparently  been no extraordinary activity in tlie  chief milling; town of the Boundary, excellent progress has been made in the  way of new'buildings, both in the way  of businoss blocks and residences. During 1901 buildings were erected in  Phoenix of an aggregate cost of $122,000,  divided as fellows: Business and store  buildings, $SO,000; residences, $-b\000;  churches, ?1'000. One notable fact in  this connection is that the character of  the structures put up is better than  those heretofore erected, as a rule. One  structure, the Bank block, erected' hy  Messrs. Graves and Williams, is built  of brick and stone, and cost close to  $16,000. Another is the McMillan block,  costing about $S000, and there were several costing from $3000 to $4000 each.  The residences also were of a better  character generally, and built in a substantial manner, of which there were  upwards of 40 erected in the last year.  Coast Local News.  VANCOUVER, January 5.���[Special  to The Tribune.]���The steamer Amur  from Skagway today brought news of  very severe weather in the north. At  Dawson 50 degrees below registered, and  it is even colder up the river. The  steamer Cottage City was caught in a  gale last Monday and a portion of her  rail was carried away by heavy seas.  The mayoralty campaign between alderman Neelands and mayor Townley  is becoming very animated. Today several city clergymen addressed a meeting  in the city hall in favor of a reform in  the municipal government, and championed the mora! government outlined  by candidate Neelands.  General Erasmus a Prisoner  LONDON, January ii.���"Lord Kitchener reports to (lie war ollice, under date of Johannesburg, January 3rd, ass follows: General Hruce Hamilton, operating to th_  eastward of Erinclu since December 2!)th,  has captured 101) prisoners, including general Erasmus.  Of the News of London.  NEW YORK, January 5.���I. N. Ford,  the Loudon correspondent of the New York  Tribune, is of the opinion that there will  be no change in the attitude of the government in dealing with tlie Boers. He says:  "The friends of Joseph Chamberlain are  confident that he will not change his policy  in South Africa, but that he will set his  face sternly against a revival of peace negotiations. They credit him with the determination to continue the military campaign  until every Boer in arms is a prisoner,  and they assert that he will not follow lord  Rosebery's advice and allow himself to  be drawn into negotiations with Mr. Kruger. This is not because he has a hardened  heart, but because he considers that everything within reason was done by lord  Kitchener to facilitate the conclusion of  an armistice with general Botha, and that  any reopening of negotiations with Mr.  Kruger is impracticable and will only expose the British cause to ridicule. The government is not likely to be influenced in  any degree by lord Rosebery's plain speaking. It takes its South African cue from  Mr. Chamberlain and will not attempt to  make peace when there is no peace. The  capture of Erasmus is considered to be an  offset for the heavy casualty lists reported  from the war ollice. While not one of the  most alert and resourceful Boer leaders,  he has exerted great influence through  sheer-force of character in keeping waver-,  ing burghers in tha Held. British veterans::  have been asserting for many months thai  the war would end as soon as a dozen leaders could be captured. Erasmus is one of  the most irreconcilable Boers."  Mr. Ford perceives a more hopeful feeling in Great Britain. He continues: "On  the threshold of the new year, a comfortable spirit of optimism is noticeable. The  political croakers havfe been unlusually  gloomy in the annual reviews and homilies, but above the rumbling bases has  rung out a high treble of cheerfulness and  hope. Coronation year has not opened with  auguries of peace in South Africa, but  there is evidence that the Boer successes  have been won at a terribly high cost, and  that those of generals Botha and Dewat  cannot be repeated without linal process  of exhaustion in the concentration of enfeebled commanders. The rebellion in the  Dutch districts is well nigh suppressed, and  the Boers, after the most persistent and  valorous resistance known in modern  times, are perilously near the last ditch  on each side of the vaal. Lord Kitchener's1  blockhouse svstem has not broken down  and the sheer weight of the British resources is slowly but surely crushing the  Dutch resistance. There may not be light  in Darkest Africa, but there is a sense of  departing darkness, and In England there  is a sense of consciousness of a new source  of strength in the loyalty of the self-gov-  erning-colonies.-Overwhelmed-ivith-burueiuu  of taxation as Englishmen are, and har-  rassed with increasing pressure of foreign  competition, they can console themselves  with the reflection that the old country  is passing through a crisis in the fortunes  of the empire without financial disturbance,  wheereas Germany, without an exhausting  war, has been shaken and paralyzed by  industrial depression."  The political situation is reviewed as follows: "A remarkably stimulated effect has  been produced by lord Rosebery's speech.  The newspapers are still discussing It, although it was made three weeks ago. It  has transformed the political situation, as  it has supplied an alternative prime minister, if it has not created an alternative  government. A strong Scotch Radical  has greeted me on my return from America with this declaration: 'We have found  our louder and shall not let him stray  away again.' Lord Rosebery is the only possible head of a Liberal cabinet. No alternative government can be formed without  him and he cannot bo anywhere except at  the top. Mr. Labouchere may revile him  and Mr. Massingham may sneer at him,  but the Scotch and English Radicals are  satisfied with his speecli and willing lo accept him as the only man who can unite  the party and restore it to the stronghold  of power. Always ambitious and never  more so than when he was reproached for  abandoning the Liberal party, he has been  tired with a noble enthusiasm for rallying  and uniting the factions and leading them  to victory. Nothing less than a miracle  hai been wrought when a consistent Radical and implacable antagonist of the titled  classes talks In this way. The most remarkable anomaly is the fusion of pronounced pro-Boers and stalwart Imperialists, who are alike invigorated and inspired by the text of the speech. Whatever  else happens the government will be exposed hereafter to the most destructive  criticism for lack of efficiency and practical ability, and the ministers will not be  believed when they assert that an alternative government cannot be formed from  the  wrangling  of  the opposition  factions.  "The weather in London is mild .with the  usual gray sky. The clubs are empty for  the holidays, and the political scouts for  the short session of parliament are not  on duty. The forecasts of the business of  the session and the changes of the rules  of the commons are numerous, and since  the secrets of the cabinet are not well kept,  the best guesses are likely to prove fairly  accurate. There will be no startling surprises in legislation or proceedure. lt will  be an uneventful session if sir Michael  Hicks-Beach remains in the cabinet and  Mr. Chamberlain does not replace him at  the treasury. The king has the Held this  year and nobody wishes to divert attention  from him. When the coronation is over  anything may happen."  Regarding the Venezuela complication he  says: "The relations of the United States  and Germany excite more interest in diplomatic circles than any episode in continental flairs. The Venezuela complication  is closely watched and a naval demonstration is followed by the temporary seizure  of the revenues and a blockade either of  Laguavra or Marguerita Is expected. It is  taken for granted by everybody here conversant with foreign affairs that tho slate  department has not only a secret understanding with but a hard and fast declaration   from   the   Berlin   government,   that  no permanent occupation of any portion of  Venezuela is intended, nor any infringement of the Monroe doctrine, and that such  measures as are adopted in the emergency  are merely designed to facilitate the collection of lawful and just debts, and will  not differ materially from the expedients  employed by France and other powers for  enforcing equitable claims against the  porte. It is clear that the foreign offlce  here has been Informed that the United  States and Germany have come to a definite agreement respecting the scope and  limitations of the naval demonstrations  against Venezuela, and that the relations  of the two powers will not be clouded if  some form of coercion becomes necessary  for the enforcement of financial liabilities.  The three great maritime powers of the  world are united in the poley of holding  inferior states, republican or monarchial,  responsible for debts, and not allowing  them to repudiate the valid claims of foreigners."  The American "invasion" of Great Britain's industrial field is ��� referred to by Mr.  Ford as follows: "The business relations of  England and the United States were never  as intimate as at present. Every incoming  steamer from New York brings a swarm  of American commercial travelers, electrical engineers and "mercantile agents,  eager to reform and revolutionize the British industrial system. The Campania, which  followed in the wake of the Germanic and"  rode lightly the. seas which a few days before had been dashed by a hurricane, had  an unusually large contingent of representative American business men. The gold-  fields of Alaska, the railways of the Philippines, the shipping interests of Philadelphia, the export trade of Chicago were  represented among the saunterers on the  deck, and the card players in the smoking  room. There were agents of every import-  ,ant American industry from electrical engineering to corset making and there was  an inventor with working jmotTelw for.n^.hip  compartment closing door whicli could be  closed by water so as to render ships of  the largest tonnage secure against every  danger except fire.  "The benevolence of Americans eager to  run this snug little island is not limited to  industries, electric railways and miscellaneous inventions. They aro also prepared to compete for the honors of the  turf and sporting prizes of every kind.  Foxhall Keene, who has arrived in London by the Campania, expects to head a  polo team in the international tourney."  Have Not Been Released.  CONSTANTINOPLE, January 5. ��� The  news that the brigands holding Miss Stone  captive are being attacked by the inhabitants of the Turkish territory where they  are said to be in hiding has created considerable of a sensation here. A deadly  feud is said to exist between the leaders  of the hostile bands, part of which are reported to have deserted and are attempting  to re-enter Bulgaria, and much anxiety is  felt here with regard to the outcome of  theso developments. The American legation here has not yet received news from  M. Garlglio, the dragoman of the legation,  who left Salonica for.the interior the latter part of last month with the purpose ot  .meeting^Miss^Stonels^captor.s.-^and-^says^  the rumors of Miss Stone's release are  quite unfounded. No direct news has been  received from the American captive since  November loth, the date of the last letter  from Miss Stono to Mr. Dickinson, consul-  general at Constantinople, who was then  acting as diplomatic agent of the United  States at Sofia.  Want to Furnish Paris With Gas.  PARIS, January 5.���La Liberie has published a report to the effect that the Rockefellers intend to apply for a concession to  supply gas to tho city of Paris. The paper  vigorously opposes their scheme and says  it would ho an act of mental aberration to  accept such a proposition, which would be  disastrous to national production and a  powerful help to the designs of the Americans who wish not only to expel foreign  industry from their own country, but who  wish to supplant foreigners on their own  ground. La Llberto says the Rockefellers  would not use a ton of French coal, and  that the granting of this concession to  them would be a mighty weapon for the  realization of the economic schemes of  American imperialism in Europe.  Murdered in a Dispute.  MONTREAL, January 5.���Word comes  from L'Assomption, a small village about  twenty miles east of this city, that Alfred  Beoit, a farmer of St. Henri de Mascouh,  is dead as the result of wounds in the chest  caused by a knife in the hands of Joseph  Chaille, a laborer. Chaille is under arrest  awaiting the decision of the coroner's jury.  The murder is said to be due to a dispute  .cr property.  Honored by the Pope.  NEW" YORK, January 5.���Miss Ann  Leary of this city has received word from  Rome that the pope has conferred upon her  the title of countess. Miss Leary built the  chapel at Bellevue hospital and established  the Arthur Leary chair of English literature in the Loyola school.  Were Accidentally Killed.  MONMOUTH, Illinois, January 5.���Four  sectlonmen were instantly killed by bunting into a passenger train today. They  were going to work on a handcar, and  the train was concealed by the steam from  a freight train on a siding.  Insane Asylum Burned,  NORFOLK, Virginia, January 5.���One of  the buildings of the Eastern States hospital for the Insane at Williamsburg was  destroyed by lire early today. It is feared  that one or more of the inmates perished.  Prominent Presbyterian Dead.  TORONTO, January 5.���Rev. Dr. Robertson, superintendent of Presbyterian  missions In the Northwest, died here today.  Dr. Robertson wa.s born at Appen, Scotland, in 1S:!9. IIo was educated at Toronto  University,  ordained  in 1SC9,  and went to  Winnipeg in 1S74. For over twenty years he  has been superintendent of missions in the  west. He was moderator of the general assembly of the Presbyterian church in 1805.  Sailors Undergo Hardships,  NEW YORK, January 5.���The crew of  tho three-masted schooner Clifton, who  were picked up by the steamer Exeter City  of the Bristol line on Thursday about 400  miles east of Sandy Hook, had a pitiful  tale to tell today of the hardships they  suffered on their sinking ship. Those rescued were captain George Fisher, first  niate David Campbell, second mate James  Peine, and three seamen. Victor Koote, a  I1 mn, one of the seamen was washed overboard and drowned the day before the rescue. The first ill luck came when after the  Clfton -had left Chatham, New Brunswick,  She ran into a gale and was forced to put  into Halifax for repairs. There she stayed  until December 2Cth; All went well until  New Year's Day, when a gale sprang up  and a leak was started. The crew was put  a_ tnepumps and it was while at this work  that Koote was swept overboard by a  huge wave. The next calamity was the  carrying away of all the schooner's sails  and two of the main booms. Then the  steering gear and the rudder went by the  board, and nothing was left but to drift.  The only thing that saved the schooner  from sinking was the cargo of lath. All  through ihe night of January the crew suffered, but at dawn of the 2nd the Exeter  City was sighted only about 100 feet away.  A small boat of the steamer was lowered  and the schooner's crew taken on board  at some risk, as the sea was running high.  As the crew left her, the Clifton was fired,  and she was burning as the Exeter City  steamed away..  An Unprecedented Concession -  PEKIN, January 5.���The' Chinese capital  on the eve of the court's return presents  an animated and gaudy scene not before  equalled in its history. All the palaces and  temples have been painted to form a glittering spectacle. The roofs of these buildings viewed from the city walls are patches  of shining yellow tiles and brick. The wall  aoout the imperial city is a vivid crimson,  and the gates leading to the imperial city  have been repaired and gilded. On the towers above the Chen Men gate stands a gorgeous structure of wood, cloth, and paper,  with a yellow painted dragon entwined  about the massive cloth pillars. Hundreds  of Chinese officials clad in furs and embroidered silks ride about the streets of  Pekin and parties of foreign soldiers bent  upon sight seeing roam everywhere. The  ministers of the foreign powers have received notice from the Chinese foreign offices that all tho streets upon which tho  court will pass, will bo closed Monday* and  Tuesday. Two buidings on the principal  streets of the line of procession have been  provided from which tho members of the  legations will be permitted to witness the  re-entrance of the court. This is an unprecedented concession.  Batch of Manitoba News.  WINNIPEG, January 5.���A Chicago dispatch to the Free Press says: "After a  fruitless search throughout Chicago covering a period of seven days, constable  John Allen of the provincial police of  Whitewater, Manitoba, left Chicago last  night for him home. In his week's Slav  in Chicago constable Allen aided by loca'l  detectives sought in vain for Walter Gordon, who though only 22 years old, is  charged by the Canadian police with ->or-  petrating two of the most atrocious and  l��!'c~ieUltated murders known to Canadian  officials.  A large number of editors and newspaper  men, members of the Western Canada  Press Association, left here today on their  annual excursion trip. Throe weeks will be  spent iu visiting California and other west-  orn states.  On Christmas night last $1000 disappeared  from the store of Elliott Brothers at Cran-  dell s. No trace of the money or rubber  could be found until today, -when the  money was found secreted in a snowbank  near the store building.  Strength cf Religious Denominations.

LONDON, January 5.���The statistics just  Issued shows that of tho total trade with  Jior colonics, England only possesses 42 per  That Means Much for Nelson.  The supporters of John A. Kirkpatriek held their first meeting on Saturday night in their committee rooms on  Baker street. Fully one hundred electors dropped in during the time the  rooms wero open. John A. Irving presided as chairman and Harry AVright  acted as secretary. Short speeches were  made by the chairman and by Messrs.  Drew, Curran, Houston, and the candidate. An executive committee of thirty  was named and other preliminary steps  taken to advance the interests of candidate Kirkpatriek. There was no talk  of conferring with any of the other  mayoralty candidates, as "Jack" Kirkpatriek is the candidiato of the people  of Nelson who are fighting for a principle���the principle of municipal ownership of public utilities. It is a principle  that is worth fighting for, and the result of the fight means much to Nelson.

Byran Addresses a Pro-Boer Meeting  CLEVELAND, January 5. ��� Four  thousand people attended a pro-Boer  meeting in Gray's armory this afternoon.  vAu ur.c-xp'MH-Kl oven I. in. thfj, meeting, was'  the appearance, of William Jennings  Bryan, who was in tlie city for the day.  Mr. Bryan spoke for about five minutes,  during which time he said: "Sad will  be that day, fallen will be the star of  our destniy, if the time ever comes when  struggling freemen feel that they cannot look upon the people 'if these states  for sympathy." Mr. Bryan said that he  was in sympathy with the intent of the  meeting, eulogizing the fighting South  African farmers, and urged them to continue the struggle. Bryan said that he  considered it a compliment that the  Boers looked to the United States for  aid and sympathy in their struggle, and  that he considered it a disgrace that no  official expression of sympathy had yet  been made by the government. Bryan  believed that the English people are opposed to the continuance of the war, as  they too are suffering because of the  unhappy conflict and are the ones that  -^must-bear^the^burden���o��Hhe-costi---A-  resolution of great length was passed  and will he sent to the president. The  president is asked to enforce tlie Treaty  of Washington, which denies to vessels  operating under Britlsn authority the  opportunity for the augmentation of  supplies of war from the United States.

PARIS, January 5.���The directors of  the Panama Canal Company met at the  - company's office at 11 o'clock on Saturday morning and after a brief session  came to a definite decision to offer to sell  tho canal property to the United States,  -for $40,000,000. This price includes the  excavations of the canal, railroad, machinery ond all the other items specified  in the isthmian commission's report.  The company's representative at Washington was sent a cable message instructing him to formally submit this  offer to the president.  WASHINGTON, January 5.���A formal  proposition to sell th�� Panama canal  properties to the United States government for ��40,000,000 was submitted to  the authorities here yesterday., It was  made by a representative of the,canal  company to admiral Walker, as chairman of the Isthmian commission. Admiral Walker brought the proposition  to the knowledge of th'e secretary of  state and the president. The submission of this offer carries out a plan  which has been under consideration for  the last two weeks. The first step was  taken when M. Puton retired, from the  presidency of the caiial company. In  substance the notification delivered to  admiral Walker is as fellows:  "The Panama Canal Company declares  itself ready to transfer to the government of the United States its properties and concessions, estimated by the  Isthmian Canal Compary to be worth  $40,000,000, in conformity with the terms  and conditions of the estimates of said  commission." <���  Except to snbmit the proposition in  the, foregoing ierms,... there, was no; discussion with a/iii-iral Walker as to what  further steps were likely to be taken  except to bring the proposition to the  attention of the secretary of state ond  prosident. it can he stated the president will communicate the proposition  to congress This feature of the Isthmian  commission's report appears under the  caption: "Total value of the .Panama  canal," and is as follows: "Summing  up the foregoing sums, the total value  of the property is found to be: "Excavation already done ?27,474,033, Panama  railroad stock at par ?G,850,000, maps,  drawings. . and records $2,000,000, to  which add 10 per cent to cover commissions, making the total valuation of tlio  Panama canal  $40,000,000.  WASHINGTON, January 5.���After a  recess of almost three weeks both houses  of congress will reconvene tomorrow.  The principal item of the house program for the week is the Hepburn Isthmian Canal bill, which is the special  order for Tuesday. No limit has been  fixed =-as-to-the-time-for-debater-on^this=  measure, but Mr. Hepburn does not  contemplate a prolonged discussion of  it. It is surmised in some quarters,  however, that if the proposition of the  Panama Canal Company to sell its  properties and franchise for $40,000,000  should be mado tomorrow, as promised,  this may have tho eftect of opening a  wider field of discussion than at first  seemed probable, and If this should  prove to be the case, tlie hill may be  before the house for a longer timo than  is now contemplated. Mr. Burton has  given notice of a speech on the bill, and  it is understood that there will ho other  speeches in criticism of special features  of the measure, but its dearest friends  aro vory sanguine not only that tho bill  will pass, but that it will pass speedily.  Mr. Hepburn thinks that only a few.  days' debate will be necessary.  lt is expected that by the time tho  canal bill is disposed of there will bo  one or more appropriation bills ready  for consideration by the house. None  of the appropriation bills has yet been  passed on by the appropriation committee, but both the urgent deficiency  and the pension bills are in a forward  state, and the expectation is that they  will bo considered by the committee during the current week. The present intention is to give first attention to tho  deficiency bill. The estimates for the  bill aggregate $21,000,000, and it is not  believed these figures will be scaled  down materially.  The senate has no program for the  week, and the business on its calendar  is small as the reorganization of the  senate committees did not take place  until just before the holidays. There  are, however, a few bridge bills reported,  and senator Morgan's bill for the acquisition of right-of-way for the Nicaragua canal Is among the measures in position to receive attention. It is not  probable, however, that the right-of-  way bill will receive consideration at  this time, the disposition being rather  to wait, the action of the house upon the  general subject and then have the senate predicate its action on the house  bill. If this course should be decided  on. the discussion of the canal question  in the senate will be postponed for a few  weeks.  Tho committee on the Philippines will  take up the Philippine tariff question  very soon, but there is yet no indication  (Continued on Page Four.)

Those who attended the rally were not all of one  class. There were workingmen, professional men, business rr,en, and a fair  sprinkling of men who have retired  from active business pursuits. While  it is true the younger men were in the  majority, still there were enough old  men present to make themselves felt.  When all classes unite on a candidate  for the high and responsible ofiice of  mayor, there is something besides sentiment in the movement. The people  who are supporting John A. Kirkpatriek  .-.for^niayor believe   in the   principle of  municipal ownership of public^tilitiesT  a principle in which all classes are interested, aud one that it supported by  many of the ablest men of Canada, lt  is a principle that was adopted by Nelson in 1897, and there should be no  halting now in carrying it out, notwithstanding the opposition of the West  Kootenay Power & Light Company,  whose ticket in this contest is headed  hy Frank Fletcher for mayor.  The Fletcher ticket is announced in  the Miner of yesterday. It is as follows:  For mayor���Frank Fletcher; for aldermen East ward���John Paterson and W.  G. Gillett; for aldermen West ward���  Harold Selous, John Hamilton, and  John Elliot. It will be seen by the  names for aldermen that four of the  present council are seeking re-election,  and all four are Kootenay Power &  Light Company adherents. John Elliot,  the new man in the West ward, is the  solicitor in Nelson of the West Kootenay Power & Light Company. The  ticket can very properly be named the  Bonnington Falls Ticket, as the si.v  names on it have voted for the West  Kootenay Power & Light Company |  every chance they have had.  Ex-alderman Hillyer, although he announced himself as a candidate for alderman in the East ward, has decided  to withdraw the announcement, as he  does not wish to take any action that  would tend to weaken those who are opposed to the re-election of mayor  Fletcher and aldermen Paterson, Gillett, Hamilton, and Selous. This is a  sensible way to look at the situation,  and Mr. Hillyer has considerable influence in the East ward.  No more flagrant violation of a law  ever took place in Canada than the recent violation of the Alien Labor Act  at Rossland by the management of the  Le Roi mine.    Yet   none   of   the   men  brought in to the country contrary to  the provisions of the act nor any of the  men who induced them to violate the  provisions 'of the act have been punished.    This would indicate that the Laurier government is afraid to enforce the  ���provisions of a law placed in the statutes  by themselves.   The Tribune is of opinion that the law is a "sop" thrown to  the Labor men who "boost" for the Liberal party.    It has   not  been  enforced  and never will be enforced, except, pos1  sibly on occasion, when some poor individual is made an example of merely  as a blind.   What is true of the enforce.-  ment of the act in Canada is also true  of the enforcement of a similar law in  the United  States.    Deportation agent  Bubarry at Buffalo is reported as almost  daily sending Canadians back from Buffalo and points near that place for violating .he Alien Labor law of the United  States.    Yet Dubarry has not deported  "ia=dozen=men"and-iwomen=-during-all-the  time he has been in oflice.   In order to  hold his job, he makes a showing by  trumping up  cases  against individuals  who never existed except in his reports.  So with the law in Canada.   Few actual  deportations have ever taken place, and  few ever   will   take   place,   and   none  know this better than the men who are  drawing salaries as officials of the Labor Bureau at Ottawa.   The law should  be repealed.   Labor can yet along without legislation that is farcial, aud without the assistance of men like William  Lyon McKenzie King, the head of the  Labor Bureau at Ottawa.  New Westminster Columbian from the  secretary of that association, Mr.  Thrift, in which he says:  "In view of the state of affairs now  existing in the country districts of B.  C, wherein tiie G. N. R. system is operated, and the experience we have gained of Mr. Hill's disinterested and philanthropic methods, one cannot but enter a vigorous protest against any further give way to this grasping southern  octopus. We are just as anxious for  railway development as any other persons in B. C, but we believe whatever  government is in charge of the destinies  of the country for the time being they  should guide and guard those destinies;  not in the interest of themselves and  personal friends, but in the interest of  the country at large. And we further  believe that it cannot be done by handing over our destinies to the tender  mercies of a huge monopoly whose interests are antagonistic to those of  British Columbia. And since the government has undertaken the construction of the Westminster bridge as a government work, we feel other necessary  public works should be undertaken in  the same manner, and thus carry on the  development of the country in the interest of the people."  -���_-��� *%-~t-*��-^->-_5'j��'_S'*^- ���_��-���-"PK'^fr* __V -"*' _->��^��        0^.*. 00 .ff& .0* .00 .^r  ^^^?0B0 <^f& *-*Q& *^^0> "^Bp "4& <*^^9 -*^^fr ^~w *-^^^ ^~^0 *^^_** ^**w0 ^^H*�� ^~B> ^~��� ^g        0^^0 ^Jfe? ^^^r ^-^0 ^^-f 4t^0 4��t0> 49P^ ^Qfe- ^*t0" *~***3fr- *T__i   ^&��w ti��3_����' 4^^ ^^ftk. _^_.  TEMPLEMAN'S EXPLANATION  The V. V. & E. press is calling for a  caucus of the opposition members of the  legislative assembly. They want the  caucus to be held in New Westminster  on a date previous to the date of the  Liberal convention. According to the  .Victoria Times, there is a split in the  Smelter's Capacity Doubled.  In order to couple up or connect the  two new furnaces at the G:.nby smelter,  the works were closed last Wednesday  night. It will probably require about a  week to do the work, wiiou smelting will  bo resumed again in the old furnaces,  and a few days later the entire plant,  with a daily capacity of about 1400 tons,  will bo in operation. This is the information given the Pioneer hy William  Yolen Williams, the mine superintendent, who spent Thursday at the smelter,  on his return form a trip to the coast.  Mr. Williams also stated that he did not  expect that the close down would make  any difference in the working force at  the mine, although shipments would  have to he suspended, as the ore bins at  the smelter are kept full all the time.  In addition to this, ne said there was  so much other work that he wished to  have done in the mines, that he expected to keep the large force of men at  work on this, instead of laying them  off. About the middle of the month the  increase of ore shipments will commence, and will have to be maintained  steadily to keep the smelter running.  The smelter ore bins now have about  10,000 tons, and the mine ore bins  nearly as much.���Phoenix Pioneer.  A Significant Statement  The Settlers' Association is one of the  most representative bodies of the farmers in the province, and no class is more  interested in the railway transportation  problem than the farmers. It is therefore significant to find a letter in the  Of Liberal Executive's Action.  Senator Templeman has made the following statement in vindication of the policy  of the Liberal executive, formulated at its  recent meeting, and in answer to the protest of many members of the party:  To the Liberals of British Columbia: The  Vancouver Liberal Association has issued  a circular to the Liberals of the province  protesting against the action of the execu-  tire of the Provincial Liberal Association  in including as ex-oilicio delegates to the  convention to 'be held at Vancouver on  January 30th: (1) The oilicers and executive of the British Columbia. Liberal Association; C!) Liberal editors of newspapers  supporting the Dominion government; (3)  ana in arranging that a credential committee should, Ue chosen by the executive  as soon as the delegates had assembled at  Vancouver. This -protest," which is aeT  companied by. a letter signed by the secretary of the Vancouver Liberal Association-,  explaining at greater length the reasons pf  the Vancouver Association for coming to  this decision, calls for a statement from  me in explanation of the reasons actuating  the executive in coming to the- decision  that it did.  (1) The contention that the executive of  the British Columbia Liberal Association���  who are the oilicers appointed at the New  Westminster convention of 1SU7���are not  properlv ex-ofiicio members of the convention, is", according to my view, untenable;  ln all associations, political or otherwise,  where permanent organization is maintained, the men appointed to manage the  business of the association remain in ollice  until their successors are appointed. Necessarily the oilicers must ue present at  conventions or meting-* of the body of  which they are oilicers, or otherwise there  would be no continuity of the organization.  The absence of the secretary, for instance,  would deprive the convention of the record  of proceedings of past meetings, while the  failure of the other oilicers to attend would  be equally confusing. Surely, if a convention of a political party appoints officers lo  manage its affairs until they are replaced  by new men, the following convention is  not justilied in saying to those oilicers:  "You have no standing here; come as delegates specially appointed, or do not come  at all." That attitude, 1 must say, cannot  be justilied by precedent nor yet on the  ground of expediency. In my view the  j-iberals will approve of the action of the  executive in this matter, and will sustain  the decision that the officials for the time  being are ex-oflicio members of the convention called for January 30th, just as  thoir successors in ollice will be ex-ofiicio  members of the following convention,  whenever it may be held.  (2; The admission of editors supporting  the Liberal government at Ottawa, was  suggested to the executive by myself. I  noticed that all the Manitoba Liberal convention editors of Liberal papers were  mado eligible for membership, and I  thought the idea could be adopted in British Columbia to the advantage of the Liberal party. It was, in my opinion, good  policy to recognize the men who help direct public opinion and whose services to  the Liberal cause in the past have been  too seldom recognized or rewarded. The  executive also stipulated that the Liberal  members of the British Columbia legislature should be members of the convention,  but as Lo this tlie Vancouver "protest" is  altogether silent. "Why? If it is wrong or  expedient to admit the editors, It is equally wrong to admit the members. The atter,  who were elected to the legislature on the  "Ijbmlnlon'piirty'platfdrinrhave'nb'strongcr  claim for recognition than the former.  But In my opinion both have claims to be  thus recognized. The action of the executive in this regard was manifestly in the  interests of the party as a whole. The sole  object was to strengthen the party by enlisting the co-operation of a class of men  who take an active an intelligent interest  in public affairs and whose influential support at a general election we are all anxious to secure.  (:',) The proposal of the executive to appoint a credentials committee as soon as  the delegates arrived In Vancouver was  due to a desire to expedite business and  save time. It was felt that If this were  done tlie convention would get down to  business more quickly. Speaking for myself, I may say that no great Importance is  attached to this arrangement, and there  should be no difficulty in adjusting it to  Iho satisfaction of all.  It Is the earnest wish of the executive  that the convention .should be fully representative in order that the views of the  Liberals of the province as a whole should  not only be presented but acted upon, and  that at least one result of the meeting  will be the unification of tho party, so  that its Influent-- in the cause of good government, both Federal and Provincial, will  bo more potent than it has ever been before.  I will call the executive before tho meeting of the convention, and submit to it  the "protest" of the Vancouver Association  and some other questions affecting the  convention.    Yours sincerely,  \VM.  TEMPLEMAN,  Prosident  British  Columbia Liberal  Association.

The recent conference between capitalists and labor leaders to devise a  way of ending strikes and disputes  opens prospects so large that we are  anxious to hear what the great captains  of industry think about it. Is peace between the two sides an iridescent, dream,  or may we really look for that union between the laborer and the owner which,  if it could be frankly and genuinely established, would solve more than half  the problems of our civilization and  bring us a permanent prosperity Une-  qualetl hitherto in the world?  From the point of view of abstract  political economy, the benefits of such  a union are beyond question, but are  the two parties to such a possible agreement to be depended on to carry it out,  should it be made, with constancy and  fidelity? Does, the present teiule icy of  - both labor and capital to combine favor  or injure the likelihood of such a consummation? Th^se are pregnant questions, and I have been asking them of  some of the most important men among  the employers of labor. They have had  experience, and have given much  thought to the subject, and what thoy  say should enable the public to see a  little way into the millstone of things  to come. ��  1 ran into Mr. Wharton on the sidewalk in front of his office, and he invited me to come up. A remarkably  clean and neat little oflice it is. witli  nothing out of order, no clutter or disarray of any sort; Mr. Wharton is an  erect, swarthy man, looking about 60,  though I believe he is older; with a face  of authority and keen good sense, tempered by kindliness. He expressed him-  solf with frankness and freedom.  He said that nobody could fail to wish  that the recent conference might achieve  all it hoped. The advantages of arbitration were plain, if it could be made  to work. A court established to pass  upon the rights of differences between  employers and employees, prepared to  act. upon matters brought before it,  whose judgments should he obeyed,  could not be but desirable. But was  this possible? Mr. Wharton would not  commit himself to an optimistic view;  for, he said, the party of labor could  not be depended upon to act up, in all  cases, to its agreement.  The laboring men were numerous, and  contrary, and without settled ideas as to  the equity of a given case, or conscious  of any obligation to stand by a contract  which did not seem to them likely to secure them the best results. The leaders  of labor might arrive at an understanding with capitalists, but there could be  no certainty that the bulk of the men.  influenced by walking delegates and  similar intermediary officials, would  ��� back-'Up-the-word-of_the-leaders.

On another occasion the advantage  was illustrated of having on the ground  men of determination and courage to  handle disturbing elements. A strike  had been declared, and a mob of employees was threatening the works. The  man on guard, though unarmed, drew a  line across the road, and told the men  that the first to cross that line would  forfeit his life. This held them in check  for a time. Meanwhile, the sheriff had  been sent for, .and was on his way with  a fast team. Before he could arrive the  line had been crossed, und the man on  guard was being roughly handled, but  the next minute the sheriff drove up.  He had a revolver and lie meant busi-  nes. He leaped out, rescued the guardian, and the two quelled the riot, and  sent the men to their homes. This was  one way of solving such troubles, but  of course its success must depend upon  the presence at the critical point of the  right sort of men.  Still another strike in Mr. Wharton's  txperience, ordered by a walking delegate, had been going on for several  weeks, the cause being the discharge of  two men for fighting. This being  against the written rules, so that, as the  overseer expressed it, the men had, in  fact, discharged themselves. But the  delegate insisted on their being restored,  and to forestall their action the mills  wore shut down before the men could  be called out.  The delegates announced that they  would appeal to Mr. Wharton, who was  a gentleman and would decide right. But  Mr. Wharton had already written to the  overseer that he approved of his action,  and tlie latter now published this letter  in the papers. This crippled the delegates, and the strike was called off. "All  this is only gossip," Mr. Wharton remarked with a smile, but it shows how  things go."  "Then do you think the future will  be only a reptition of the past?" I asked.  "Speaking roughly, I should suppose  it might be," he replied. "But of course  such meetings as the "recent one must  have a good effect, and it is likely that  as time goes on the relations between  la.bor and capital will improve. It would  improve more rapidly in England, or in  a small community, not open as ours is  to constant influx of new people. But  common sense and fair dealing should  have their influence in the long run  even here, and though I cannot wholly  endorse the optimistic views of some  persons, still I should expect to see a  bettering of conditions as we become  better acquainted with one another, and  with the true aspects of the questions  under discussion.1'  And I judged, though nothing was  said to that effect, that Mr. Wharton  was not altogether inclined to despair,  even were things to go on as they are.  There is plenty of work to be done in  the country, and the men will be found  to do it. There may always be malcontents, but their influence is not fatal or  lasting.  IMPERIAL BANK  03?

In his interview with the executive of the  miners'  union  during  his  visit  here "William Lyon Mackenzie King stated that one  reason why the labor "department at Ottawa was unable to enforce the alien labor act  in Rossland, was the fact that no impropriation had ben voted for the purpose and  that consequently the government, and in  its  turn,  the  labor department was quite  powerless to move in the matter. Everyone  present at the interview, including the deputy   minister   himself,   is   said   to   have  smiled audibly when this lucid and forcible explanation was given. Mr. -King does  not  mention   the  circumstance  in  his  report.   Possibly   he   thought  it  better   and  wiser to leave It out. An effort has been  made to register a point against the union  executive because they did not invite Mr.  King to address the members of the union  after it was ascertained that no investigation could be held, owing to the refusal of  the managers, to submit their side of the  story. AVhat happened, however, was this.  When   the   deputy   minister  informed   the  union executive that he was powerless to  take any action on their behalf,  they refused to call a meeting of the union for the  purpose of Mr. King's addressing the members,  but at the regular weekly meeting,  the following evening, the matter was fully  explained and the union unanimously sustained tlie action of their executive. It was  the union  therefore who declined to hear  Mr. King, once it was known he was powerless  to   take  any action  in  the matter.  It is quite plain the government does not  regard either the conciliation or the alien  labor  act  as  statutes  to  be  taken  at all  seriously���except  possibly  around  election  times   and   the   labor   department   at   Ottawa, including Mr. King and his valuable  gazette, may be included in the same category for all practical  purposes  so far as  wage earners are concerned. Is there a line  in  Mr.   King's  report   which   "vindicates"  the Intemperate and Insane policy of Bernard McDonald and the Morning Whiner?  If there is by all means let us have it. Mr.  King does assert that the chief cause of  the original strike was unjust and unfair  discrimination against union men. The deputy   minister,   however,   quite   overlooks  fact   that   a   lock-out   preceded   the  to  to  9\  to  to  to  9\  to  to  to  to  DISPATGH IS THE SOUL OF BUSINESS  This is always true, but never more so thau in the   holiday   season   of   the   Jewelry   business  when the loss of a day in filling an order means the loss of a sale.

ARTICLES FOR SALE.  the  strike at the smelter. AVe hope the union  will enclose a copy of today's Whiner  with their protest against Mr. King's report. Nothing that the executive could say  to the minister would make the situation  clearer on some points than the articles  referred to.���Rossland Word.  Therefore if one party could not he  depended on, it was evident that the  other could not with any conB.'lence attempt to conclude bargains.  He thought that the organization ol  capital would have a good effect, so far  as it could be made effective at all in  these disputes. For when capital acted  in unison, there would be little opportunity, and consequently little temptation, for one employer to take advantage  of the embarrassments of another to go  behind the latter in making contracts  with employees. When the men found  that they could not bettor themselves  by piaying ono .employer against another, they would become more settled,  and less disposed to try to improve  thoir position by seeking new employment.  lt was understood that the employers,  being united and having mutual understandings, would not seek to crush labor, or to. work injustice in contracts  with laborers, but would proceed upon  lines which experience and study of the  questions involved had proved to be  most conducive to the welfare in the  long run of both sides.  If both factoTs in the problem could  be trusted to be constant, then at least  it was well that one of them should be  so. As to the labor unions, they had  their favorable aspects, but it should he  remembered that tlie greater the number of members in a labor union the less  could it be trusted to stand by an engagement; there would be so much tht  greater chance that malcontents in the  ranks would create disturbances and oppose the wishes of others. f  Would the situation be improved if  the number of immigrants was diminished? I wanted to know. Mr. Wharton did not seem to think that the difficulties lay in this direction. He referred to an experience of his own  when he wished to establish a certain  industry; there was no workmen in the-  country competent to carry it on. He-  imported men from Belgium, skilled  laborers, and for some time all went  well; they spoke only French, which he  also spoke, and this fact aided in keeping them together; the wages were fair.  But it came to his ears that a strike  was meditated at. a near date. He  quietly imported another lot of laborers  similarly qualified for the work. Tho  intending seceders were unpleasantly  surprised, but there was no more trouble in the conduct of that business. This  was legitimate strategy, being a counter-  ^���^A& Watclir'Wit_rarHistoryrm-^  Five thousand dollars for a watch.  It seems an enormous price to pay for  a timepiece iu these days of cheap  watches. But this particular watch belonged to Thomas Spratt, dean of Westminster, and is 212 years old. It has  been purchased by the duke of Northumberland, probably for presentation  to the British Museum.  It is one inch and a half thick. Its  outer case is of tortoise shell, embossed  in silver. There is a minute hand, but  no hour hand. Instead, there is a moving semi-circular disc, whoso flat side  cuts the face ol" the watch in half. It  contains on the left hand corner of the  upper side a representation of the sun,  and on the right, hand corner a representation of the moon; these edges indicate the hour, and the positIon,pf the  sun and moon to the earth at thftt" hour.  The works are filed out by hand and  run on diamonds, and inside the watch  is the inscription that the timepiece was  made by Barnett of London, in 1(>S9. On  another case is engraved the fact that  this watch was presented to the dean  of Westminster by the duke of Buckingham as a mark of esteem.  When the dean died the Buckingham  watch was handed to his son, Thomas  Spratt, M. A., and on the death of the  second Thomas Spratt the watch descended to his eldest son. At his death  it passed into the possession of captain  Spratt, who ran a three-masted schooner  from England to Charlottetown, Prince  Edward's Island.  On captain Spratt's last voyage he  handed the watch to his daughter, with  the remark that he would not carry it  with him on that voyage, as was his  custom.  Captain Spratt may have had a presentment. Be that as it may, he never  returned home. His ship was seized by  pirates and all hands were murdered.  The watch then traveled across the seas  to repose in a treasured family heirloom  in the home of America's great shipbuilder, Nelson Spratt, uncle of Mr. La  Tage. Mr. La Page embarked in the  glue business in America., and later secured the precious family heirloom, the  Buckingham watch.  Mr. La Page is now starting two glue  factories along the big salmon runs in  British Columbia. He parted with the  watch for commercial reasons, although  ho has regretted the act ever since the  Three Trains Wrecked  JOHNSTOWN, Pennsylvania, January 5.  ���Threo trains were piled up in a wreck  on tho Pennsylvania railway about seven  miles west of this place last night. According to the reports obtainable one man  was killed and four injured, several others  sustained slight injuries. The killed and  injured were railroaders. There were two  wrecks. The first was caused by the east-  bound mail and express train that carries  the through passengers from Pittsburg to  New York running into a side track on  which was standing an eastbound freight  train. Tho wreckage was piled high over  the tracks, and before flagmen could be  sent out a fast westbound freight on the  Pittsburg division ran into the wreckage."  According to the reports received here,  much of the debris was tumbled down into  the Conemaugh river.  Well Known Man Suicides.  ST. LOUIS, January 5.���Henry C.

This will mean good hard work and  can ony be accomplished if each member  devotes the time necessary for the rehearsals. As the supply of books is somewhat  limited, members unable to attend rehearsals will please leave their copies at the  church or with Mr. Kydd.

In taking this action, I wish to thank my many  friends for their very generous promises  of support. CHARLES HILLYER.  The Campaign in Ohio  COLUMBUS, Ohio, January 5.���In the  Republican caucuses this evening for  the organization of the general assembly, the Hanna men secured control of  the house and the Foraker men of the  senate. Some of the nominations for  officials of the senate were made without opposition, but there was a "fight to  a finish" for those of the house, especially for the speakership. There Was no  compromise in tho case. In the senate  the senators make up the standing committees themselves. In the house the  speaker appoints all the committees and  the contest, was primarily for the speakership, with everything else as secondary.  The Republican senate caucus was  short and featureless, but the house caucus was animated and lasted several  hours. Representative Cole, in presenting the name of W. S. McKinnon of  Ashtabula for speaker, denied that Mc-  Kinnon's election could he construed as  a humiliation of senator Foraker, whose  re-election they all desired.  Representative Guerin, in presenting  the name of Aaron Price of Athens for  speaker, repeated the statement that  Price had been indorsed originally by  both senators and other Republican  leaders. He denounced "outside influences" and the threats to make "one  termers" out of certain members. McKinnon was nominated over Price on  the first ballot by a vote of 38 to 30.  After McKinnon's address of acceptance Price was called out and made the  sensational speech of the day by. nominating and declaring himself for Hanna  for re-election to the senate two years  hence. Price said that he found it easier  to get pledges than votes and eulogized  Hanna and McKinnon, to whom he  credited his defeat as men of the highest character.  Burgess L. McElroy was nominated  for re-election as chief clerk of the house  over H. V. Speelman on the first ballot  by a vote of 43 to 25.  In the Republican senate caucus most  the time was devoted to the selection  a committee to apportion the stand-  Says Prohibition is & Fraud.  NEW YORK,- January 5.���During a  discussion of the subject of the opening  of Sunday saloons before the Church  Club, bishop Potter said that, inasmuch  as the "powers that be" had decided  against any change in the existing excise laws of New York state, the subject  was academic. Bishop Potter then went  on to describe the law as it exists at  present, saying it recognized drunkenness as a mitigation of crime, and that  this attitude of the law was false and  vicious. "That was the first blunder  that was made," said bishop Potter.  "The next was in the matter of vicious  sentiment. John B. Gough always pictured the drunkard as a victim who was  not a criminal in getting drunk, because  he was practically a martyr. That is  just as false a sentiment as the other  is a false lie, and the whole theory of  Mr. Gough's teaching was false and  wrong."  Bishop Potter said, concerning prohibition: "Wherever it has triumphed  it has educated a race of frauds and hypocrites. In Maine, New Hampshire  and Vermont- today, by actual statistics, the consumption of certain preparations is larger-than anywhere else in  the country. One of these is sarsapar-  illa, which has 17 per cent of alcohol,  another is a compound with 27 per cent  of alcohol, another is a- bitters with 61  per cent of alcohol. A good claret has  10 per _ent of alcohol, and great multitudes of people who are sworn prohibitionists are the consumers of these  things. We ar.e going to persist in this  policy to screw up all the front doors  on Sunday and open the back doors; we  are going to nurse a race of hypocrites,  to furnish an opportunity to the police  .to exact a bonus, and to close the door  to the manly and Christian method of  dealing with intemperance. Prohibition is an impudent fraud, and an impudent failure."  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  _S^vs_s^^u5_a_s_s_s__ft_ft>&_s_s____sa_a____a_a_& j  ���0*.0*-0?.0*.^.0*.00^-00-00^. 00-00.^.^^.^.^.^.'%,.^,r00^\^  H.

Yours respectfully,  FRANK FLETCHER.  January 4th, 1902,  ANNOUNCEMENT.  A Political Forecast.  LONDON, January 5.���When king  Edward opens parliament on January  16th, which will be an occasion of even  greater pomp and ceremony than was  his last appearance in the house of  lords, one of the most interesting sessions of recent years will be commenced.  Before its conclusion, the whole status  of the Liberal party is likely to be altered, and lord Roseberry's future determined. Present indications point to a  split, which no middle road pronouncements can heal, and in which sir Edward Gray, H. H. Asquith, sir H. H.  Fowler, R. W. Perks, R. B. Haldane and  other imperialists, together with a few  unionists, will flock to lord Roseberry's  standard and initiate an. organization  with the hope of securing control of all  the Liberal elements. Prior to the general election this diversion of the opposition will greatly facilitate the government's program, the chief "Item of  which is a sweeping reform of parliamentary procedure. The hopeless delay  and confusion which at present characterizes all executive labors at Westminster have reached a point where parliament has become ridiculous in the eyes  of the country. In the drastic recasting  of the procedure many methods employed by the United States congress will  either be adopted or given a trial in  modified form. Among other important  features of the session will be a  thorough investigation of general Bul-  ler's dismissal from command of the  flrst army corps. This doubtless, will  once more involve the nation in a whirlpool of bitter controversy, education and  finance are two routine matters which  will carry more than usual interest.

CHICAGO, January 5.���Fully $600,000  of the money George V. Hankins made  in twenty years' gambling business in  Chicago went into the coffers of the  Chicago University yesterday. Proceeds  of faro, roulette and stud poker will now  be used to cultivate the higher life of  discontent. The strange transfer came  about because the Hankin real estate,  valued at more than $600,000, was foreclosed and purchased by the university  for $415,000. This is the last of $1,500,-  000, which Hankins once possessed and  which left him faster than it came.  When Hankins heard of the purchase he  said: "If if it will do the sons and  daughters of poor people any good 1  hope it will grow to $2,000,000. I am  out of real estate, but I am not all in  yet"  AT   SKATING   RINK  -ON-  TUESDAY EVENING, JANUARY 7th.  AT 8 P, M,  Well-Known Engineer Dead.
