 _r_  ESABLISHED   1892  FRIDAY   M0KN1N0,  JANUARY  3,. 1902  DAILY EDITION  CASTRO YS. MATOS  A STRUGGLE FOR SUPREMACY IN VENEZUELA.  THE FORMEE REPORTS CAPTURES,  AND THE LATTER ISSUES A  PROCLAMATION.  FORT DEFi-ANCE, Island of Martinique, January 2.���Tho British steamer  Banrigh, recently renamed the Liberator, which arrived nere on December  24th from Antwerp, having on board an  alleged cargo of munitions of war intended for the agents of senor Manuel  A. Matos, the reputed leader of the revolt in Venezuela against president  Castro, has left this port for the Venezuelan coast. She carries among her  passengers senor Matos, who is now referred to as general Matos. Several  -generals and other important personages  of Venezuela joined soncral Matos here.  Besides the leaders of the expedition,  the Liberator has on board 300 volunteers,.and it is understood that she will  embark a number of other volunteers  while on her way to r.he coast of Venezuela. Previous to lus departure from  Port de France, general Matos issued a  manifesto, calling on all his fellow-  countrymen to take up arms. While the  Liberator was at this port her sides  Were strengthened with light armors and  her gun positions were protected. Her  armament is of the modern type..  NEW YORK, January 2.���The Vene-  _r._lan consul in this city today received  the following cablegram:  "CARACAS, January 2.���Ferdinanclez  defeated. Pietrie prisoner. Revolution  crushed.        CASTRO."  PORT DE FRANCE. January 2.���The  text of general Mato's manifesto is as  follows:  To my Venezuelan C-riintryinen: Our  native country is moaning; she is per-  ��� suing. The pride and folly of a perjured magistrate havo brought our  country to the edge of an abyss. Let  us unite and save our native land.  Heedful of public opinion and mindful  of the honor with .vhicn a large number  of my very distinguished compatriots  invested me when they generally selected me to become enief of this cru-  _ado of redemption, I come to my country's aid quickly and with diligence, i  bring with me all the necessary munitions of war to strengthen our will and  render it irresistible. At the same time,  I hope to serve as a bond of union between all Venezuelans who desire to  save our beloved country from ruin.  Countrymen, the sole use of all our  arms shall be for the liring of joyful  salutes, bearing tidings of contentment  and happiness to our homes. Let each  one of you fulfill his supreme duty towards his desolate country. Do this  and each one of you will have the great  satisfaction ot^knowing he has saved  VenezuelOrom^m'ater^  family from the shedding of bitter tears.  The primary object oi" our endeavor is  to remove one man from his public position, a position in which he has committed every error aud every excess, and  who has compromised, not only Venezuela's good name, but even her national  integrity. Traitor to all his duties, this  unfortunate man has alienated from  Venezuela the good will of the countries  of tlie world, and his diseased brain  has led him to bring about a misunderstanding with Colombia.  Countrymen all, lot uc remove this  faithless magistrate, who alone is responsible for the misfortunes of Venezuela, and united into bond."* of sincere  brotherhood, let us at once re-establish  interior peace in our country, harmonious relations between Venezuela nnd  foreign powers, and let us liring about  the respectful observance in our land  of every man's rights and the strict  accomplishment of every man's duties.  Thus you will regain your good name,  win back your boloved country, and the  gieat Liberal cause will once again become invested with its merited prestige.  God, all-powerful, inspires us, and  with His help we will save Venezuela.  Your countryman:      M. A. MATOS.  On board the steamer Liberator, December 31st, 1901.

PARIS, January 2.���-The fashion of  dining at some smart restaurant is rapidly increasing in peculiarity, judging  by the series of brilliant evenings at the  Ritx aud Palace hotels given during the  last week. The dining rooms have been  crowded with the pick of Parisian .society. ':  On Wednesday a very smart dinner  was given at the Ritz by the marquis  de Paradas, in honor of "he infanta  Eulalie, who was charmingly attired iu  a cream guipure toilette. The high-  necked corsage showed the slightest  transparency at the necK in front, while  an embroidery of gold thread on the  lace draped front was repeated round  the hem of the skirt. An accompanying  large black picture hat completed a  pretty toilette. "  Another table was the comtesse Tor-  by, elegantly dressed in black spangled  embroidered net over white satin; a  pretty white toque of draped tulle, trimmed with the fashionable flower of the  moment, the edelweiss, and white  plumes, was a becoming complement.  They Favor ^Reciprocity,  NEW YORK, January 2.���A meeting, of  the cluunber of commerce was held here  today. Addresses were mado by M. \I.  Weill,...-, -a representative oi: Fro.ichliuer-  oslst, and by Laidwig Max Goldbcrgor of  Berlin, both of whom aro in this country  to investigate American commercial methods. The committee on foreign commerce  and revenue laws presented a report and  resolutions disapproving of the action  taken by the reciprocity convention hold  iu Washington. This report and the resolution:! were adopted after considerable debate. Tho resolutions adopted read as follows:  Whereas, this chamber has consistently  favored the establishment through reciprocal concessions in tariff rates of closer  trade relations between the United States  and tho commercial countries of tho world;  and,  Whereas, the national reciprocity convention, in its present session in Washington,  adopted a resolution commending reciprocity through tariff modifications where it  can bo done without injuring any of our  homo interests ol? manufacturing, commerce, or farming, thereby rendering any  application of reciprocal tariff concessions  impracticable: and,  Whereas, tho national reciprocity convention in a. second resolution commended  the establishment of a new commission,  to which shall bo referred all. reciprocal  trade agreements, thereby anriuling and  "dlsi-ogar(iiiig"ii;lio-*ivaluable"and^beneficinl-  work successfully accomplished by the present commissioner plenipotentiary, and the  negotiation ot tho important treaties  whereby a great part of the trade of the  countries would bo thrown open to us;  therefore, be it;  Resolved that this chamber hereby ox-  presses Its disapproval of the action taken  bv tho national reciprocity convention in  Washington on November 20th, as subversive to all attempts to bring closer trade  relations with out sister nations and open  now and wider markets for our products;  and bo It further  Resolved, that, the chamber views with  apprehension tho policy advocated by the  reciprocity convention as likely to Invito  hostile legislation on the part of other nations against this country, to tho great  detriment of its commercial interests."  Tuberculosis Not Contagious.  NEW YORK, January 2.���Dr. S. Knopf,  the well-known authority on tuberculosis,  tonight addressed the academy of medicine.  He said thai, contrary to the opinion of  the United States government, tuberculosis was not contagious. A man with well-  defined tuberculosis could do his work  dailv if tho proper precautions wore taken  and' the sputum removed and destroyed.  The government, he said, hud-stamped all  or those afflicted with the dread disease  with a stigma that was not proper. Dr.  Knopf declared that the exclusion of immigrants because of alleged tuberculosis  symptoms and tendencies was wrong. They  were in the major portion of cases well  provided not only to care for themselves  but their families as well.  Decorations to be Discarded.  HALIFAX, January 2.���According to information received by acting-general Bis-  coc in charge of imperial forces here, the  war office authorities in London have decided to prohibit the use of all useless ornaments on officer's uniforms. No gold lace  will be permitted, and belts and straps and  swords must disappear. Tho only distinctive  marks between officers and men will be  shoulder decorations. These orders will apply to Canadian military officers, also, so  'tis said.  Work to be Reorganized.  OTTAWA, January 2.���James A. Smart,  deputy minister of the interior, and AV. J.

PHENOMENAL SMELTING RECORD  Made by Paul Johnson at Greenwood.  GREENWOOD, January 2.���[Special to The Tribune.]���The tonnage of ore smelted  at the British Columbia Copper Company's smelter at Greenwood since it commenced  operations last February aggregates 117,565 tons. Substituting a few days running in  February for those shut down for repairs in August, the above-named quantity  represents the ten months' run of a single furnace of the nominal capacity of only 250  tons, and it gives a daily average for the whole period of 384 tons. During recent months  though the daily averag. has steadily increased, having been 394 tons in September, 408  in October, 409 in November, and 422}^ in December. The. last month's run was a  record one, and totalled 13,098 tons. The last figures are remarkable and constitute  eloquent testimony to two prominent facts : First, the particularly favorable nature of the  self-fluxing ores of the Boundary; next, the skill of Paul Johnson in designing, constructing, and operating a smelter to produce results that are regarded as phenomenal in the  history of copper smelting.  CHINESE ARE ANTI-FOREIGN  Strong Feeling Manifested.  PJ-KIN, January 2.���Several recent  occurrences tend to discourage the hope  that the dowager empress has learned  a lesson of reform from the events of  tire past year. Foreigners r.re disposed  to take a pessimistic view of the outlook.  General Yung Tu'_ determination to organize two anti-foreign corps to offset  tiie commands of the pro-foreign Chinese  leaders, is particularly disquieting, and  is evidence of the continued domination  of Yang Tu's influence, whicli is bit-  terb" anti-foreign. Other incidents considered significant are the: suppression  of the only independent newspaper, in  this city by order, of the governor of  Pekin, and the closing of the industrial  school here, recently organized by philanthropic Chinese, also by the governor's order.  Proofs accumulate that prince Ching's  arguments persuadsd the dowager empress to trust herself within range of the  legation forts. Officials arriving here  describe the dowager empress and gen-  eial Yung Tu as being extremely nervous and suspicious lest the foreigners  rae planning to entrap them after their  ai rival and punish them for encouraging Boxerism. The foreigners will probably view the court's re-entrance into  Pekin from the wall near the legations.  The Chinese officials have been sounded  by the ministers as to whether they will  enforce the old -justom of restraining  foreigners from witnessing imperial  processions. The replys are not encouraging. The treaty gives the legations a strip of wall commanding a view  ot" the gates of the imperial city, and  tlio, members of the Jpreign. community,  are planning to assemble thereon. " ft  will be a great innovation.  A Remarkable Gift  CHICAGO, January 2.���One million  dollars is tho sum said to have been offered by Robert LeBaudy, a French  multi-millionaire, for the establishment  of a French industrial school in connection with the University of Chicago. It  is proposed that it shall be the greatest  institution of its kind in tho world. Th.?  tender was made to president Harper  through M. LeBaudy's agent, Emile  Ridel, of the French army. Dr. Harper  promptly replied it was the very thing  the university desired, and the preliminaries were settled _t once. The new  '���liool Is to be an integral part of the  University of Chicago, and the necessary buildings, for which M. LeBaudy  will furnish the money, will be located  on the campus of that institution. M.  LeBaudy, it is said, will also establish  an endowment fund. The students will  consist of U00 graduates "of French colleges, to be selected by the government,  and 200 will be sent over each year.  They will come on scholarships, all expenses of transportation and living being defrayed by France.  A Popular Appointment,  NEW YORK, January 2.-���According  to the London correspondent of the  Tribune the appointment of lord Marcus Beresford to care for tho king's  thoroughbreds is extremely popular.  The royal racing stables, after a period  of enforced rest, will, it is now expected,  resume their old activity. The king  takes the keenest interest in racing.  Lord Marcus Beresford will have the  management of the Wolfordon stud  farm as well as the Newmarket training stables.  Marconi is Lionized.  MONTREAL, January 2. ��� Signor  Marconi was tendered a luncheon today  - Mr. Fielding, at which sir Wilfrid  Laurier, sir Sandford Fleming, sir  Sluiughntssey, and other prominent men  were present. It is believed that a  Marconi station for warning vessels  will bo put up on Sable island. Tonight  signor Marconi was a guest of the governor-general at government house.  CANADIANS NOT SATISFIED  FREE STATE FORCED LABOR  Want to be Officered by Canadians.  TORONTO, January 2.���The Evening  Telegram's special cable says: "The  Express today says that 'a letter from  the Canadians at the front who have  joined Baden Powell's constabulary  show there is great dissatisfaction  among tho men on account of Canadian  troops being split up. making them  half English and half Canadian. It was  understood when colonel Steele left Canada that he would command all of the  1200 Canadians fhat went with him, but  instead he was given command of division B only, one which had no Canadians in"it. He >vas refused the Canadian troops that^vere.in -^division, and  soon lifter the volonol :'_oiug ordered  north tendered his resignation rather  than go away with unreliable recruits  instead of his own reliable Canadians.  One letter declares a storm is brewing,  and will come before long, and either  ���Monel Steele and a few of the Canadians will go back lo Canada inside of  six months or colon-1 Steele will have  his own way and get control over his  men from Canada.  Wants a Law Carried Out  WASHINGTON, January 2.���W. R.  Matchett of this city, representing the  government of Liberia, today made a  formal request of secretary Long that  action of congress, as embodied in the  act of April 17th, 1S6C, oroviding for the  relief of Liberia, be carried into" effect.  That act whicn was introduced in congress by senator Summer and representative Banks, both of Massachusetts,  provides that there shall be ^transferred  to the government of Liberia one of'the*  gunboats of the United States navy acceptable to the government of Liberia,  ard which in tho opinion of the secretary of the navy can be spared conveniently for the purpose. The secretary t  is empowered to enter into contract  'vith a representative of the Liberian  government for the sale of the vessel  to Liberia at a valuation to be fixed by  the secretary of the navy, and to be paid  in annual installments not exceeding  ten in number. Nothing was done in  connection with tho legislation until  president Cleveland came into power,  when secretary Herbert set aside the ol 1  wcoden warship Swarta tor the use of  the Liberian government. For various  causes, however, the order for the transfer of the vess3l was never carried into  effect.  A Grave Charge Against Eussia.  LONDON, January 2.���The Times tnis  morning publishes three alleged sacred  documents communicated by Dr. Ular,  a prominent student of Chinese affairs,  who recently returned to Europe from  Manchuria and Mongolia, which go to  prove the existence of a bargain negotiated between the late Li Hung Chang  raid Russia through the medium of the  Russian prince t-khtomsky. Under the  tenns. of this bargain thc; Boxer move-  n-nt, whicli it is hinted was fomented  by Russia, was to be turned against the  foreigners, Russia engaging to protect  the dowager empress against the western powers-in .cturn for permission to  cccupy-Manchuria and a very free hand  ir. Mongolia. Commenting editorially  on this matter, the Times says it sees  nothing in the recent history of Russian  act;on in the far cast inconsistent with  the story contain-d in the documents  supplied by Dr. Ular.  More Warships Ordered.  GLASGOW, January 2.���The British  admiralty has invited Clyde shipyards  to tender bids for the construction of  two battleships, each of 10,600 tons, five  armored first-class cruisers, and two  protected cruisers. Tho officials ask for  promptitude. Work on he twenty warships now under consti-uction may be  expedited. The new battleships will  have greater gun power than any vessels now in the navy.  Civilization is Disgraced,  LONDON,. January ?..��� Captain Guy  Burrows, who has just returned from the  employ of the Congo Free- State government after six years service, declared  in an interview today with a representative of the Associated Press that the  conditions prevailing in the Congo Free  State were a disgrace*to civilization and  far worse than ever before. He pictured  atrocities of the most horrible character  perpetrated on the natives by officials  and whites who had concessions of rubber land. As a typical case of the means  employed by the Free State government, captain Burrows corroborated the  statement of an American missionary,  to -iie effect that the' officials employed  .five hundred cannibals, to whom they  issued rifles, to "massacre and capture  unarmed natives who had rebelled  against their brutal methods."  "I have sworn testimony," said Burrows, "of the Belgians handing over natives to cannibals for the express purpose of being eaten. Forced labor prevails everywhere, and t-hotgun rule is  the truest discription of the present administration. The companies deriving  wealth from the collection of rubber are  all more or less state enterprises, as a  third or half the shares in them are invariably held by the government. Latterly king Leopold and the government  have made some show of action against  the agents of some of tbe Upper Congo  companies, but only minor officials are  ever touched, and ".he so-called reforms  are mer,ely intended to throw dust in the  eyes of the public, whose indignation has  been aroused by the stories of this reign  r.-f terror. While -"he present systems  .for. _the__collec.tion_of_.rubber.t-nd the re  cruitment of natives continues the  Congo Free State will remain a disgrace  to the white man's work in Africa." .  The Public Pleased.  NEW YORK, January 2.���A dispatch  from London to the Herald gives the  following account of the manner in  which London received the new king  Edward stamp. There was an enthusiastic demand and a ready supply but  king Edward coins were missing. Many  people got up early and went, considerably out of their way to make purchases  I" the pretty new penny and half-penny  stamps. Quite a number of ancient pil-  atelists waited until midnight on Tuesday at the general postoffice, and began  asking for tho new stamps which were  ���n sale immediately after twelve o'clock  struck for New Year'." Day. In the majority of cases the stamps were promptly  affixed to letters and post cards which  were forthwith postod at "'he nearest  letter box.   Hotel and Theatre Ablaze.  NEW YORK, January 2.���The Morton  house and Keuh's theater, at Union  Square and Fourteenth street, were  threatened with distinction by fire  early this morning. One hundred  frightened patrons of the notel were  forced by the smoke 'o make hasty exits from their rooms, and a great deal  of excitement was caused in the neighborhood by fear that the fire would  spread, Twenty-two firemen were overcome by smoke and the fire department  worked three hours before the flames  were under control. The loss is estimated at ?30,000.  Destructive Fire at Portage la Prairie.  PORT AG 13 LA PRAIR1K, Manitoba.

Several of the firemen were scorched and painfully bruised.  The origin of the fire is unknown, but it  is believed to have been caused by defective apparatus in the Central Hotel basement.  Engineer Stuck to His Post.  MONTREAL, January 2.���The Maritime  Express on the Intercolonial met with a  peculiar accident at St. Rosaile at 7 o'clock  tonight. The engine and cars left the track  while going at a high rate of speed, but no  one was hurt. The engineer stuck to'his  post and averted what might have resulted in loss of life.

QUEBEC, Quebec, January 2.���William A.  Schwartz, for twenty years consul-general  of Norway and Sweden In Quebec, died  this morning, aged 76.  MAY BUY TELEGRAPH LINES  Congress Likely to Take Action.  WASHINGTON, January 2.���Senator  Mason of Illinois shortly after the reconvening of congress will introduce a  bill providing for the purchase by the  United States government of the telegraph lines now operating in the country. Representative Jackson of Kansas  has already introduced such a measure  at the other end of the capital, 'but the  significance of senator Mason's bill is  that he is the chairman of the committee on postoffices. lt is not likely  that he would make a move in this direction unless he thoroughly understood  the attitude of the administration on  the question. His proposed action becomes ali the more significant when  taken into account with the fact "that  the next postmaster-general, Henry C.  Payne, is known to favor government  ownership of telegraph lines. Mr. Mason was not willing to talk m the subject today. He seemed surprised that  his connection with the matter should  have become known.  "It is true," he said that I favor the  government ownership of the telegraphs,  i hey ought to be a part of the postal  system of this country just ?.s they are  in Europe. The wires, like the mails,  are simply a' means ot* communicating  intelligence, the only difference being  that the telegraph is quicker. The question of the p'roposed purchase has  been brought to my intention, and I  know that the subject will receive attention at this session of congress. I  am contemplating the introduction of  a bill providing for a postal telegraph  through the purchase of the existing  lines." It is una"erstb&d that Mr. Mason's bill provides for the issuance of  bonds by the treasury department in  sufficient amount to pay for the property  of the existing company. The bonds are  to bear 2 or 2 1-2 per cent interest; and  to run for twenty-five years. It will  also provide for the extension of the service, gradually to all of the postoffices  of the country, a reduction in the rates,  anu for the creation of a sinking fund  from the earnings of the "lines with  which to pay the bonds. The bill is  also to provide that the bonds may be  used by the national banks for deposits  in the treasury as a basis for their jcir-  =culatlonT~~" _______________________  The Nihilists Are at Work.  PARIS, January 2.���A dispatch to the  Patrie, from Kiev, European Russia, under today's date, says a bomb exploded last  night under the balcony of the palace  of the grand duke Constantino.

BID-HOT BATTLE  .���,.*?.'  NOW SAID TO BE ON BETWEEN RIVAL ROADS.  GRAND  FORKS'S HOT  AIB   LINE  UP AGAINST HILL'S GBEAT  NORTHERN,  Billiard Expert Dead.  CHICAGO, January _.���Kugeiie Carter,  the billiard expert, died today of lung  trouble.  SPOKANE, January 2.���Reports are  current that the Great Northern and  "Hot Air" lines to Republic are about  to become involved in lively litigation  over right of ways through certain mining properties in Republic camp. Th��  flght is said to be waxing so warm that  an extra session of court is to be held  in Republic, commencing tomorrow,  to settle some of the difficulties now existing between tne two roads.  ���The fight between the two lines now  seems to be centered on rights of way  through the properties belonging to the  Lone Pine-Surprise Mining Company  and the Quilp. The Hot Air line, otherwise known as the Kettle Falls & Re-  P-blic road, was the first to survey its  route and make definite location. Across  the Quilp and Lone Pine-Surprise definite location was made for a spur to  reach the ore bins of these two properties. Following this the Great Northern  in surveying its line to Republic, made  a survey across these two properties on  its direct line without any 'spur. The  reining companies were' at first of the  opinion that the two lines were not conflicting, but would run on different sides  of a gulch. This, however, was discovered to be a mistake, the two roads having surveyed almost the same ground.  Then came the trouble. The Hot Air  line claimed the right of way by priority of location, and also by a grant from  th( mining companies. The Great Northern makes its claim by grant from the  companies. The mining companies are  willing that both roads should run to  their ore bins, but nuitber road wants  its r'.val to tap these sources ot revenue.  This-is where the fight is now centered.'-  The Hot Air line, it is said, has already applied for an injunction against  tbe Great Northern, which, of course, is  to be fought by Hill's end. The two roads  could not very well run along the same  side of the gulch without interfering by  reason of the fact that it would be necessary to make two cuts, one above the ���  ether, and the company on the upper  cut would find no small amount of trouble in removing the dirt, which could  i ot be dumped over the side for fear of  filling in the cut below, while the opposite side of the gulch does not give  gcod access to tne ore bins. Each road  would like to keep the other from reaching these ore bins.  The Great Northern system has an unlimited backing, and will try hard to  freeze out the small short line. On the  other hand it is reported that the short,  line is backed by the Canadian Pacific,  and is ready to meet any onslaught  from Jim Hill's system.' In fact, it is  claimed by many that the Hot Air com-_  'pany"is"plannihg"tol;r^r^up=tMF"title-'  to its right of way dispute with the  Great Northern and bond its line, the  bonds to be taken by the C. P. R. Thera  seems to be no doubt Ihat the Hot Air  line made the first definite location ot  the right of way.  Reported. Alive and Well.  .

The Rossland Miner places the  value of the ore mined in that camp at  $3,700,000, or $700,000 more than the  estimate of The Tribune. As the Miner  is on the ground and should be able to  get figures that are approximately correct, still we believe The Tribune's total  is one that the country need not be  ashamed of.  The Tribune will spportthe candidacy  of John A. Kirkpatriek: for mayor of  Nelson for th�� year "*!*02, nnd will do  its level best to elect bim.  John A. Kirkpatriek has announced  that he is willing to make the race for  mayor at the coming election. Mr.  Kirkpatriek has helped make Nelson.  Successful in all his own business undertakings since coming here in 1892,  he has shown his faith in the town's  future by investing what he has made in  >i"_iness in the Kirkpatriek-Wilson-  Clements block, one of the finest buildings in the interior of British Columbia.  .    Ho has the time to devote to the duties  ' of the office; he has the ability to conduct the city's business on business lines;  has no enemies to punish or friends to  reward; has a clean record as an alder-  '   man, as a business man and as a citizen.  ' Tlie people of Nelson will make no mistake   in electing   John   A. Kirkpatriek  r__mayor,^for_r_he^cani_be_.dependedJ=.on^toi  look after the city's interests first���a  trait that cannot be too strongly developed in those who occupy the highest  civic position within the gift of the  people.  A number of names are mentioned in  connection with the ofiice of aldermen  for the East and West wards.    In the  East ward alderman 1j ving, ex-alderman  Malone,  ex-alderman Morrison,   R.  W.  Drew, J. H. Matheson, and Robert Robinson have friends and adherents, and  any thiee of these gentlemen could be  idepended on to work for the best interests of the city.   In the West ward alderman   Madden,   ex-alderman   Irvine,  captain D. C. McMonis, W. P. Tierney,  and W. C. McLean have supporters who  would do their best to elect them.   All  .  these  gentlemen   have faith  in   Nelson  and  believe  in its future.    They  have  confidence in the town and in the country that has made tho town.   No one of  them believes in going into partnership  with  outside  corporations   in  order  to  carry on our public utilities.    Instead,  they believe the City of Nelson should  be in a position through its public utilities, to extend a helping hand to private enterprises   that will   make   payrolls within the city limits.   Any six of  the   eleven   names    mentioned   above  would be representative, not of a class,  not of a faction, not of a party, but representative of the people of Nelson.  The Tribune has estimated the yield  . of the metalliferous mines of Kootenay  and Yale at $10,000,000 for the year end-  ind December 31st, 1001, and the Miner  estimates the yield at. $13,000,000, a difference   of    $3,000,000.     The    Tribune  hopes  that the estimate of  the  Miner  . is right;   but,  taking   the   information  that is obtainable as a basis, $10,000,000  will be found to be nearer the mark than  ��� $13,000,000.   The Tribune estimated the  i value of the Boundary ore at $6 a ton,  ��� the Rossland ore at $10, the Nelson ore  A Bit at the Soreheads,  . What insane folly induces either  Kootenay or Boundary papers to  "knock" their district for the purpose  of aiding a few coast "heelers" to make  a point on the govsranient is a closed  volume to us. There is not a section of  the province that is not doing remark-  ably well, the condition of silver, lead  and copper markets taken into consid-  ��� ation, to say nothing of the strenuous  efforts being put forth by both home and  outside papers to knock the resources  of the province. Banks ��� are establishing branches, railways -are building,  smelters are being c-re'eted,1 mine's arc  shipping, and the people are eating  three square meals a day with a surplus  laid by to purchase turkey and cranberry sauce, plum pudding.and mince  pie on Christmas. The doctor's are wearing store clothes and the preachers are  so dealt by that their spirits have arisen  to such an extent that they preach more  of the love of God ana less of hell-tire.  Last but not least anyone who has a  pain nowadays can establish a newspaper and work it off while incidentally-  earning his bacon and beans. So what  under the sun is there to occasion the  gloomy forebodings of newspapers. Editors like he of the Grand Porks News  and others of his kidney ought to be  banished to Kamschatka, where so  much of their time would be taken up  doctoring chilblains that they would  have no leisure to indulge their pessimism at the expense of the country.���  Trout Lake Topic.  A Boycott of Intellect.  ^"The^Daily'Chro'iicle^bf^Londbh^has"  succumbed   to the   argument   that the  male writers   employed   on  the  paper  need protection from the women, and  has reduced the salaries of the latter by  one-third.    The men waited in a body  on th3 proprietors and complained that  "the rapid   advance   of women   in the  practical work of daily journalism was  a menace to the profession.*'   The same  cry is heard in other newspaper offices  in London.   The dispatch which brings  this news omits to say what ratio the  pay of women bears to the earnings of  men eir ployed as newspaper writers. It  is not much of a strain on'the imagination to suppose that the women have to  work for what they can get.   Nor is it  a wild supposition that a cut of a third  in their pay might reduce their earnings  below a living wage.     Some   of them  may be widows with children to support,  and others may be spinsters whom nature has disqualifl.l for matrimony. Seldom is man  too  ill-favored  to  many,  and some of the -gliest men are married to the sweetest and fairest of women.   What is the matter with the London sir Galahads of the pen?   Are they  not witty enough, keen enough, stable  enough,  and busy enough  to compete  with  the women  who have to put  up  with less wages?   Why not marry some  of the poor   girls   and   let them   keep  house?     Instead   of deducting  a   third  from their pay, why not draw lots among  the single men   and   decree   so   many  marriages?���New York Sun.

Bryan had to state if he  had ever suffered from any fever, and if  so, what kind. He Is said to havo written:  '���Yes, had two severe attacks of presidential fever, followed by severe chills, but I  have fully recovered from both."  It is said that at certain seasons in Scot-  alnd, when the fishing is not very brisk,  the fishermen act as caddies, and are easily  recognized by their costumes, a woolen  jersey and trousers braced up to the armpits. One of these was asked his name by  thd gentleman for whim ho was carrying,  and the reply was: "Weel, sir, hereabouts  they mostly ca' me 'Breeks,' birt. ma  'maiden'   name is  'Broon.' "  After preaching a sermon on the fate of  the wicked, an English clergyman met an  old woman well known for her gossiping  propensities, and ho said: "I hope my sermon has borne fruit. You heard what I  said about the placo where there shall be  Wailing and gnashing of teeth?" "Well,  as to that," answered tho dame, "if I 'as  anything to say, it be this: Let them  gnash their teeth as has them���I ain't."  An English treasury official' was once  sent over to London to inquire into the  expenditure of fuel in the courts. He was  received politely by the late lord Morris,  the famous Irish lawyer and wit, who said  he would put him In communication with  tho proper person and rang the bell. When  tho elderly female who acted as court-  keeper appeared ho remarked, as ho left  the room: "Mary, this is the young man  who has come about the coals."  Lord Coleridge was driving toward his  court ono morning in his brougham, when  an accident happened to it at Grosvenor  square. Fearing ho would bo belated, he  called a cab from tho street rank, and bade  the jehu to drive .him as rapidly as possible to tho court of justice. "And where  be they?" "What! A London cabby, and  don't know where tho law courts are at  Temple Bar?" "Oh, tho law courts is It?  But yo.tr said the courts of justice."  jSlr Adam Ferguson describes a shooting  ramble ho had one day on tho high grounds  near Galashiels with sir Walter Scott.  It was an exceedingly windy day, and  coming to a farm houso In an exposed  situation they went up to it, but could get  no admission. At length a female voice  wa:i heard within and Ferguson called out:  "What's come of the men?" "Oh, they awa  o'er to tho Windydoors," (a real place so  named). "I think they might havo been  content with their ain doors," said Scott,  In his dry, droll way, as ho turned his  pony's head.  A new volume of reminiscences by Dean  Hole quotes the following extraordlnay  prayer as offered by a loyal but certainly  Injudicious English clergyman on behalf of  queen Adelaide, tho wifo of William the  Fourth: "Oh, Lord, save thy servant, our  sovereign lady, the queen; grant that as  sho grows an old woman she may become a  new man; strengthen her with thy blessing that she may live a pure virgin, bringing forth sons and daughters with the  glory of God, and give her grace that she  may go forth before her people like a he  goat on the mountain."  ��� On-a=recent:ivIsItHoiStr=Eouis"arehbishop  Ryan, a noted Philadelphia prelate, rode  in p. carriago to tho parochial residence  with bishop Glsnnon, who is rather dimu-  nitiva in size and of slight build, especially  in tho stomachic regions, while archbishop  Ryan is very tall and robust. As they  alighted from the carriago archbishop  Ryan said to his companion: "Bishop Glen-  non, I was onco asked to explain tho difference between an archbishop and a  bishop. I answered (and the archbishop extended his arms in a sem-circle from his  own healthy body, at the same time  glancing rather sharply at bishop Glennon),  " 'The difference is In the arch.' "  A man was once condemned in Afghanistan to have his ears sliced off as a minor  punishment. Ho had a powerful friend who  was much attached to him. This friend  begged tho late ameer, in duly submissive  tone_, to allow him to perform tho operation, a favor whicli was granted. However,  tho amateur asked tho ameer which portion of each ear ho wished to have removed. Tho ameer accordingly touched  them lightly. Whereupon tlio Ingenious���  and courageous person preceded to quote  a; passage in tho Koran which said that  anything touched by a representative of  the Almighty became sacred. The despot  smiled grimly and forgave them both.  What Ontario Has Left.  The blue book shows that only 22,-  863,578 acres, or 17 per cent of Ontario,  have been sold or leased. This leaves  103,130,422 acres, or -3 per cent of Ontario undisposed of, and in the possession  of the crown. Much of the crown land  is barren, or too rough for cultivation,  or too far north. Put a vastly greater  area of good soil or good timber remains untouched than has yet been disposed of. Nor, at the present rate, does  Ontario seem likely to be fully settled  for a century yet. Since 1894���seven  years���only 1,223,j86 acres have been  sold or leased by the crown, at which  rate the balance of the good land of the  province will not be all disposed of for  several centuries.���Ottawa Journal.  According to a story that Is going the  rounds ot the Italian papers, the tenor,  Tamango, gave a large supper In his villa  at Verese the other day, to which ho Invited all the local authorities and many of  his friends. In tho invitation it was Intimated that "while waiting the hour of sun-  -per, which is fixed at 11 p. m., there will  bo music to begin at 9." Ono of the authorities replied thanking him, adding, however,  that ho would some at eleven punctually.  Tamango, justly Indignant at such a slight  to his voico in favor of his supper, answered: "As the supper is only offered as  a reward to thoso who have tho patience  to hear mo sing, and who want to be indulgent with me. I pray you to renounce  tho supper, and come to dinner with me tomorrow at noon, assuring you that I will  not sing."  J;:  In the great campaign of lSGfl. ono of the  arguments used against Lincoln was that  he had served but one term In congress,  while .senator Douglas had for manv vears  enjoyed a national reputation. This point  was urged in a heated discussion, overheard, between an ardent .supporter of senator Douglas and a German voter, who  favored Mr. Lincoln. Tho former thought  to overwhelm his opponent by saying:  "Who is this Lincoln? Nobody over hoard  oi him until senator Douglas brought lilm  into notice by holding joint debates with  him. Senator Douglas, on tho other hand,  Is a great statesman. Why, ho has had his  eyu on tho presidential chair for the last  ten years." Vot Is dot you say?" was the  reply; "you sav Meester Douglas have had  his eyo on tho president chair for tho last  ten years." "Yes, that Is just what I said."  "Veil, you jest tell Mr. Douglas oof he  keep his eye on dot chair shoost a leedle  longer, ho will soo old Abo Lincoln sitting  down in It." That closed the debate nmld  roar  of  laughter  from  tho bystanders.  to  9}  9\  9\  9}  9\  ���  0^0.  *.

Serious Discriminations.
>
Sonic, interesting- information with regard
to rules 'that l_ni*Misli railways charge for
tho carriage of produce from looal points,
in comparison with tlie freight on the
same class of goods brought from America to tlie old country, is given in the course
of a review published in Ihe London
Chronicle on a. book entitled "The Ruin ot*
Rural Kngland: A Warning," from the.pon
of Sir. John Wesley Martin. The reviewer
is Dr. Augustus Jcssop. _"rom the remarks
of tho latter it would appear that Mr. Martin has attacked the methods of the English railway companies with considerable
vigor, sp far as their freight charges are
concerned, and he points t» these as one
reason for a decadence in agriculture. Another reason, Mr. Martin alleges, Is that
"the agricultural industry no longer offers
a future to those who remain on the soil."
The tenor of Mr. Martins remarks on
the railway problem may be gathered from
these extracts from the review of Dr. Jos-
sop, and they are strikingly like tlie complaints of discrimination at present being
made in Canada.
'"Assuming."' lie says, "that the statistics
quoted are to lie accepted as accurate,
there is cause for uneasiness in Ihe outlook. We are assured that tliilry years ago
there were .lsi,!>Uti miles of railway laid down
in Great Britain, at an average cost of
.C.-J 1.000 per mile. At the end of 1000 the mileage stood at 21,1100, but the cost of the additional OOUO miles amounted to the enormous
sum of more than £100,000 a mile, but this
money lias not been spent in building new
lines, but in carrying on a war among
themselves tthe railway companies) for
outside traffic. In order to secure this they
have built Meets and dock's, acquired harbors, multiplied their rolling stock * * *
veil knowing that the money so expended
would, from"-'a business point of view,
prove unremoperative.
"What explanation can bo offered for a
policy which at the first blush would seem
lo be suicidal? The competition between the
great trunk lines has been so keen and
fierce Ihat the temptation has ben growing to acquire at all hazards the carriago
of foreign imports from the American or
continental seaboard, nnd delivering them
not. merely at such ports as Liverpool,
Southampton or .Harwich, but carrying
them on to our great centers of population
—London, Manchester, • or Birmingham—
such through rates being charged as reduce the land carriage to a figure which
is out of all proportion lo the freight demanded for the transit of our home-grown
commodities.
"Tako the following as illustrations of
the working of the process: (1) The freight
for meat across the Atlantic from port to
port is las a ton, but to secure the carriage
of this meat, say from London to Liverpool,
a preferential rate of 25s per ton is charged
for the railway carriage. 'Preferential'—
for .we are told that from intermediate stations adjacent to Liverpool the rate for.
home-grown meat is actually double, viz.,
50s per ton. (2) Hay is now brought to
London from the' American seaboard at
15s per ton, but from stations in mid-Essex,
only forty miles distant from London, il
cannot be put on the market for less than
15s 2d a ton, while the vexatious delays in
forwarding this Essex grown hay, as
shown by Mr. Martin's figures, are almost
incredible. (3) Fresh meat imported from
the continent, and landed at; Southampton,
can be delivered in London at 17s lid a ton.
The same meat if put on the train at
Blshopstoke (six miles nearer to London)
by the English farmer is charged £1 7s
per ton. (4) Eggs shipped at Calais are
delivered by the Southeastern in London

"These are some few incidents out of
-a-greaUmany_given__in-this--curioiis-boolc,-
which go very far to prove Mr. Martin's
contention that our home produce is heavily handicapped in Ihe competition with
the. foreigners, and that the railway companies aro playing a desperate game of
war with one another, which is waged at
the expense, not ol* the foreigner, but at
the cost of the producer at home. He, poor
man, can probably supply a great deal
more corn or meat or eggs or butter than
ho does, but he cannot do this at a profit
when the cost of carriage in his case Is
double that which tho foreigner pavs. Under such conditions competition is"impossible."

SCIENCE VERSUS CORSETS

The Most Turbulent of People.
Afghanistan, tho. Soudan, Ireland, the
hill tribes of the Hindoo Koosh an 1 the
Himalayas, or the uneasy alien 'communities that Turkey misgoverns have
hitherto been supposed to be the 111031
turbulent of all the peoples, but they
run great danger just now of beiiur relegated,' one and all, to second place, because of conditions existing in the South
American republics. It would be difficult to devise a more animated spectacle than the southern tail of the hemisphere to which we belong presents at
the present moment. A box of mouk-js
would be a Quaker's meeting in comparison. Not to dwell on a number of "-mall
revolutions in Central America, we may
begin with the unpleasantness between
CoJombia and Venezuela, which led the
procession of disturbance. Practically
a state of war existed between the t-vo
countries, if conflicts of armed men may
be regarded as a state of war. Bui
there was war within war, for- in uotli
republics rebellions were in progrcss
that in Venezuela being really sanguinary, and widely extended. But for
Venezuela troubles do not come singly.
For many years the interest on a foreign loan, said to amount now to ?1j,-
000,000, has oeen unpaid. The mono
was loaned by German banks, and tin
Venezuelan government has virtually
repudiated it, Germany does not propose
to see her subjects defrauded in this olf-
hand manner, and she is threatening tc
.occupv a Venezuelan port and sei*3 tiu
customs until the debt is liquidated
Here, of course, another difficulty arises
Such a sum could not. be collected lor
two or three years, and the United Stater
would witness the occupation of a South

A Bold Doctor's Convictions.
There is a story going the rounds that-
one Dr. Philippe Marechal, a French
scientist, wants to pass laws restricting
the wearing of corsets by the women
of his native land. Dr. Marechal is a
bold man, and he has the courage of his
convictions. Paris is. the stronghold of
the corset; all the good ones comes from
there. ■Women cross mountain chains
and perilous seas to get-them, arriving
as it were, sacks, and leaving, as it
were, sylphs.? They,are the choice products of the city by the Seine, that one
buys as one buys a mackintosh in London, corals in Naul'es, and cuckoo
clocks in Switzerland., Yet from the inner walls of the citadel Dr. Marechal
has lifted up his voice and denounced
the corset and all who barter-.in it;in
the market place. •'■■■..-: ■"■.'.'■"
The world is so used to his denunciation that it goes by without even pricking its ears. No one pays any more attention to the warning note than they
did in Niuevah to Johan sitting under
his gourd, dismally prophesying general ruin. But Dr. Marechal does not.
simply satisfy himself by saying that all
womenkind are detsriorating because
they persist in wearing garments injurious to health. He evidently knows
there is no good in Vnat. What he wants
done is a law pa.-sed forbidding the
wearing of-a;corset by any woman under-thirty. His idea is that the industry should be taken under the supervision of the government, and, when the
victim goes to the corsetiere, she shall
not only have to give her measurements,
but her age as well. How it will be ascertained that she '•_ telling the truth,
Dr. Marechal will have to decide. When
you are thirty in Paris, you-look eight-
^eenr-and^when^you-^iook^-thirty^heaven-
knows what age you are, but Methu-
saleh would be a boy beside you. When
a Frenchwoman has got to chocs'- between giving up her corset or owning
to the three decades, she is certainly
between the devil and the deep sea.
Dr. Marechal is not as naif as he sounds.
Me evidently intends to keep his countrywomen from weaving the deleterious
garment until they are at least fifty.
His crusade includes other things—
high heels, pointed toes, long skirts, and
tight collars. He does not seem to think
that women can be reasoned with on
these matters. Th*y can only be restrained in their folly by tho passing
of laws. The Hindoo widows have- to
be forcibly checked from burning themselves on their husband's biers. So the
modern women of all civilized countries,
having been shown tho iniquity of their
manner of dress in many and devious
ways, and still persisting in their errors, can only be deflected from their
pernicious course by the interference of
the law. Dr. Marechal has arrived at
the conclusion that there is no use telling them that a corset is an unnecessary evil. They have Deen told that for
centuries in books, on the stage, from
the pulpit, by doctors, by dress-reformers, by the inventors of patent health-
waists, by elderly ladies whose figures
are past repair, and it has been of no
avail. They have gnnc on down the
ringing grooves of .inanges wearing all
form."* of it, from the east-iron cages,
which were the mode in queen Eliza-
beth'sday, to the ribbon' girdles of modern Paris, and have suffered and been
strong with the courage of martyrs.
Scientists hold that this wierd and eccentric pleasure taken by women in
wearing uncomfortable and unsightly
articles of apparel, like tight belts or
shoes with very nigh heels; their love
of brilliant and sparkling articles of
adornment, such as jewels and beads;
and their inexplicable affection for headdresses adorned with feathers and which
never accurately fit tueir heads, are
proofs of the woman's close aflilation
with the savage. Men, it is urged, do not
delight in uncomfortable clothes; they
show no desire to be adorned with
bead; and they do not clamor for feathers in their hats, but they prefer them
severely untrimmed and of a size and
shape to set firmly upon their heads.
Man is thus much farther from the savage state than woman. There is a close
relation between the aborigine—who is

proudly uplifted when he can wear an
old silk hat several sizes too small for
him, and which nas to be held in place
by a pair of shoe "_ces tied under the
chin—and the fashionable lady in her
new* bonnet, which is daintly perched
on tlie top of her neatl and held on by
means of ornamental' pins and strings
of ribbon. And who can deny that the
same zest for a barbaric form of adornment does not actuate the native chief
with a ring in his nose, and the society
queen with diamonds thrust through
holes in her ears?
This is evidently Dr. Marechal's point
of view. There is uo use of arguing or
appealing to the intelligence of the simple, primitive femal- of the species. She
must be restrained i;.y law. In India
she must be.prevented from burning herself alive on her husband's funeral pyre,
and in the more enlightened west, she
must not wear a corset till she is thirty
—or tail she says she is thirty, which is
not exactly the same thing, but bears
enough resemblance to it to pass. Dr.
Marechal has not carelessly chosen this
age. His accuation'.against the coi'sot
is that it induces to rulmonary diseases,
which generally develop before thirty.
It is not that a .voman is supposed to
have more sense after that. I fear that
Dr. Marechal is of the opinion that a
woman—in^ the "/natter of personal
adornment—is without sense at any period of her career.
Is it not odd, however, that this
gifted Frenchman -tiould be skeptical
of reforming his countrywomen in this
particular. Americans appear to be the
only women who have seriously tried
to combine the rational and the beautiful in dress. This is the only country
in which the short skirt is really an institution. If is the only country in
which women wear properly wide, low-
heeled shoes. And it is certainly the
only country where one sees a reasonable number of normally large waists.
The French: scientist might well despair
of his country-women ■•with'-: their tiny,
high-heeled, pointed walking boo'.s,
their trailing dresses in the rain and
mud of winter, and their amazingly
slender figures. In England it is just
as bad.. .For .many .years I was regaled
with-fair'y^teles of the rational and sensible dressing of Englishwomen. Then,
when I saw it, I-realized another allusion", was dead. They are even more
frivolously and less hygenically attired
than the French. Their heels are quite
as high, their skirts are quite as trailing, and their belts are only a little bit
larger than their ODllars.
But after, all is said and done, is the
corset such an instrument of'death and
destruction? Can any one lay any very
serious charges at its door? We hear
a great deal of talk about it, but when
it comes to- actual facts and figures, we
don't seem to have much proof. Women
have been wearing something of the sort
according to the variations of fashion,
time, and the mechanical arts, since
apparel of any kind came into vogue.
Of course there is no knowing what
they might have been had they gone
corsetless since the beginning of things.
We might have been a race of giants
by-this-time^with^'tho-glory-that-was-
Greece and the .-.randeur that was
Rome." We might have got even past

There is one curious fact to notice,
and that is that the diatribe against the
corset always comes from men. Now
that so many woman are explorers into
scientific mysteries, it is odd that more
of them do not hold out the arresting
hand to stay their sisters' flight down
hill. But. even the women doctors are
reticient on the subject.' Some, I hear,
have been heard to •tdmit that a well-
made corset was not ouch a deadly thing
after all. Others of them don't say much,
but they wear the article under discus
sion, and their clothes always fit. Is it
that vanity is so :leeply grafted in the
feminine mind nothing will root it out,
or iSrithat men are talking of something
of which their knowledge is small? If
the latter supposition is the case, one
can only tell the story of the traveler
and the Scotch farm servant. The traveler noticed that the servant was barefooted, and said to her: "My good girl,
do all the Scotch farm servants'go barefooted?" To which she replied "Pairtly
they do, and pairtly they mind their own
business."—Geraidine Bonner, "in San

WASHINGTON, January 2. ��� It was  stated on good authority at the capitol  today that senator Quay will never return to his seat in the senate," says the  Washington Times, "that he is preparing to  retire from active political life in the neat-  future. In a letter received at the capitol  today, it was positively stated* that the  Pennsylvania senator has decided to resign from tho senate. Mr. Quay has been  unable to attend the sessions of the upper  body except for one day since the fifty-  seventh congress convened. He has remained in Florida and his health, instead  of improving, has gradually grown worse.  To return to Washington, it is said, would  be but to Imperil his life. Senator Quijy  has stated that he would have liked to  remain her to attend to the legislation of  which he is especially Interested, but that  he found this Impossible. His friends say  that under the most favorable circumstances he would hardly be able to serve  out his term as United States senator. Mr.  Quay has at present. It Is claimed, no desire to remain in public life, and will surrender as soon as he can do so and do  justice to his friends. He can no longer  take an active part in legislation, and as  he has won all of his battles he is content  to retire with present honors. It was admitted today by a senator who is close to  Mr. Quay that the resignation will be sent  to senator Pry before many weeks. As  senator Quay is in Florida and senator  Penrose ln Philadelphia, the above story  could not be corroborated here tonight, but  it was generally accepted among Mr.  Quay's friends as being approximately  correct.  pany will make none, that made a year  ago proving unsatisfactory to both parties  and productive of the present trouble. The  strikers are determined, and have called  labor mass-meetings for tomorrow and  Tuesday evenings. The belief is general-  that the strike is nearly at an end.  Official Figures.  VICTORIA.

Schley the Favorite. ���  WASHINGTON,    January    2. ��� The  members of the American Historical Association were mute when rear admiral  Sampson was named by the toastmaster  at  the luncheon in  the congressional  library today, but applauded loudly at  the mention of rear admiral Schley. The  character of the men composing the association  makes  the  incident striking  and suggestive.   Charles Francis Adams  is   president   of the organization, and  among its members are scientists,  literary men and college presidents..   One  ���of the guests who was to respond to a  toast, after the   luncheon   at. the congressional library   this   aft-rnoon, was  captain Mal-an of the navy.   Introducing him, the toastmaster explained that  the association   would   doubtless   have  been happy to have been permitted to  greet George Dewey. There was a hearty  round of applause  at  the   mention of  Dewey's name and the toastmaster continued:    "Or admiral Samjison."    Not  a sound was heard.    The stillness was  actually painful as the toastmaster hesitated   an   instant   before   continuing:  "Or rear admiral Schley."   Then there  was a roar of applause that made the  banquet  room   ring   and   drowned the  speaker's voice.   The cheers died away  and broke forth again.    Grave and ordinarily dignified'men of letters clapped  their hands and shouted like a crowd of  school   boys   or   pleased   first-nighters.  The demonstration Avas remarkable in  that it came from men by whom the  history of the Spanish war will be written.  Killed an Alleged Highwayman.  CHICAGO, January 2.���Eugene Hector,  formerly financial agent of a Chicago  newspaper, shot and killed an alleged highwayman last night. The" man killed is supposed to bo a Bostonian, named Donovan.  Coast Strewn With Wreckage.  VICTORIA, January 2.���W. P.

John Biomberg has resumed the proprietorship of the Grand hotel on Vernon  street, and wants his old friends and patrons to know the fact.  Tha dredger at Kootenay Landing has  broke.down, which has put a stop to the  work for a few days. A channel for about  half the distance has been excavated.  Martin O'Reilly is stock taking and expects to be through in about a week's time.  As soon as he is through, he will begin  moving to Fernie, whero ho has decided to  locate.  A special meeting of the Licensed Victualler;;' Association will bo held In the  board of trade rooms this afternoon at 3  o'clock. All members aro requested to attend.

Claims to he the Original Discoverer.  ^STrEOUISrJ anuary=2.^Jr GrReeh= of  this city today presented to director-  of-works Taylor of the world's fair  plans and specifications of an airship,  thf original drawings of which he  claims were stolen from him nearly ten  years ago by a Frenchman and taken to  France, where he now claims they have  been reproduced in th3 air craft made  famous by Sanio_-Dum'ont. Mr. Reen  _ays he is the discoverer of the principle which has lc-t-n used by the daring  Brazilian in his (lights around the Eiffel  tower. He has requested director Taylor to inspect his models and drawings,  with a view to building and equipping  *vi airship for experiments at the world's  fair.  Yesterday, on paying a subscription for  tho daily edition of The Tribune, a business  man of Nelson who has not In tho past  been classed as a "Houston man." said:  "t have been a resident of Nelson for four  years, and during that timo 1 have not al-  ' ways  agreed with  tho views expressed by  ��� The  Tribune; but  I am  now compelled  to  ��� admit that tho stand taken by The Tribune  Tho Rossland amateurs will appear at the  opera house this evening in tho laughable  comedy Confusion. Tho Rossland people  have played to good houses In their home  city, nnd this, more than anything else,  has induced them to give a performance in  this city. Those who patronize the show  may be sure of a very enjoyable entertainment and aside from this Nelson owes It-  to tho visitors from Rossland, ln return for  past favors, to see that they get a bumper  house.  Thomas Cottrell Collins Is back in Nelson  from a trip through the Lardeau. He reports everyone at Ferguson and Trout Lake  confident that they have the best mining  district in British Columbia. The railway  is within ten miles of Selkirk, which is situate at the east end of Trout lake. The  force at work numbers about 200, and they  will be employed at finishing up the grade,  which will take about two months. The  tracklaying crew has been taken off, and  no more track will be laid until spring.  A good story comes from Molly Gibson  Landing. The ore coming down from the  Molly Gibson mine Is very rich, and some  of the pieces make fine specimens. A well-  known ranchman was at the landing the  other day, and asked the man in charge of  the ore for a few specimens to send to a  mining man in Montana. The specimens  were given freely and upon being asked tho  name of the mining man to whom they were  to bo sent, the ranchman replied, "Whv,  to my friend Marcus Daly." As Marcus  Daly has been dead for over a year, the  ranchman Is now treating the boys to keep  them from telling the Joke that is on him.  Telephones on Dining Tables  There is a new quick-lunch telephone  in Chicago, and the city has the honor  through te Chicago Telephone Company  of being the first in the world to provide  diners with telephones while they eat.  The broker, financier, merchant now  eats his lunch placidly, certain that his  place of business can call him up and  talk back to it without, leaving his table.  Three cafes of the city are already using  the system, and it promises to be installed in all the popular eating houses  within a short time. All the dining  table now needs is a stenographer and  typewriter to make man absolutely  happy.���Chicago Herald.
