 11  '��������"  fflh  WEDNESDAY  MORNING,  JANUARY  I,  1902  DAILY EDITION  SLOCAN COMPANIES MAKE  SHAREHOLDERS HAPPY.  ._ f  THE RAMBLER-CARIBOO, GOODENOUGH, AND SLOCAN STAR  DO THE TRICK.  v\  KASLO, December 31.���[Special to  The Tribune.]���The Rambler-Cariboo  Mines, Limited, have declared another  dividend of threo cents per share  amounting to $30,000. This is the fourth  ��� dividend of like amount which has been  paid during the past year. Besides doing extensive development, the company  has installed considerable new mining  equipment, consisting of 2500 .feet of  A flume and pipe line, 400-light electric  \- plant, 60-ton concentrating mill, ->elt-  driveri air compressor, and 40-ton hoist.  These improvements cost the company  in the neighborhood of $40,000, which  was paid out of' the earnings for the  current year.. A circular sent out to the  shareholders under date of December  31st says: "The work outlined having  been completed and paid Lor, and the  condition of the mines and the treasury  being both satisfactory and gratifying,  we take pleasure in., affording you notice herein of dividend No. 8, payable  January 30th, and we confidently expect  that the earnings for the coming >oar,  after payment for improvements and  dividends No. 5, 6, and .7, the property  is handsomely equipped should pay  more; than one percent per month.. The  Rambler-Cariboo dividend makes ihe  third dividend declared from Slocan  mines" during the past ten days, Lhe  Goodenough, Slocan Star, and ���.Rambler-  Cariboo- having all made Chris.avas  . presents to thoir shareholders.

Have Made Uwent.Representatlons.  WASHINGTON, December 31.���Secretary  Hay's view as to the proposed German program in Venezuela was communicated to  the German government in the shape of a.  written memorandum. This supplemented  verbal exchanges which had taken place  in Washington between ambassador Von  Holleben and president Roosevelt and between the ambassador and secretary Hay  at greater length. The state department  positively refuses to make public the memorandum or its substance,- but it is pointed  again that the basis of the United States  representations is to be looked tor iu Ihe  utterances of president Roosevelt in' his  annual message to congress tou-hmg on  the Monroe doctrine in its application to  South American countries which do not  pav thoir debts. Nothing has been heard  from Caracas to sustain the report that  United States minister Bowen,. through  urgent representations, has induced a  postponment of tlie execeution ot the German program. It is certain that no instructions to that effect have been given  Mr Bowen, though it is. admitted that it  ^-would-be=the_.duty^oLtlie=UiiUed___ States  minister to exercise all of liis powers  within the lines of the general policy of  this country to prevent possible bloodshed.  Confirmatory evidence Is had from unom-  cial sources of die purpose of the German  government to at least delay action against  Venezuela until the issue of the present  revolutionary movement.  Danish Government in a Stew.  BUFFALO, December 31.���A Washington  dispatch to a morning paper says: Information received hero' indicates that the  Danish government is in u terrible stew  "over the sale of the Danish West Indies  to the United Stales, the \\ iishliigion government thought that everything luul been  arranged lor the exchange of the treaty  by which possession'was to be transtorreii  from Denmark to the United States but  opposition to the sale has developed In  Copenhagen, which has frightened he new  Liberal ministry into withholding Its consent to the treivty arrangement. According  to tho understanding in oilicial circles hero,  the trouble ln consummating the deal lies  i'n" the inexperience of the Danish ministry.  For the llrst time ln many years the Liberals are In power, but they are ufi-uid to  take anv radical steps that may result in  the return of the Conservatives, who are  making the. most ot the matter over the  West India matter. A suggestion that a  plebiscite be held in the islands, to determine whether tlie inhabitants want American rule has been made but not formally'to the state department or Its diploamtlc  representative at Copenhagen. That this  government will not consent to a plebiscite  appears to have been determined, so that  Denmark has no chance,, of conciliating  her subjects by such a course.  Anxious to Sell the Panama Canal.  PARIS, December 31.���All the newspapers  her today publish an address to the shareholders   of   the   Panama   Canal   Company  issued bv M. Bunau Varilla, a large shareholder, who cabled December 21st and made  " an appeal to  the shareholders and others  at the beginning of .the year lo contribute  funds to carry on the work ot  the canal  and who  only  secured promises of.  _J0,uoU  francs.   In   this   address,   which   lakes   up  half  a  page  of  space   in   the  papers,   "*_.  Bunau  Varilla  gives  the   text  ol   a  lcttei  which he recently wrote to the new president of the canal company condemning the  decision  to  attempt   the  impractical  .task  of reopening the negotiations with Vv'a.,n-  inffton for the sale of the company's property, and urges that the only course open  to save the situation is for the company to���  make, before  January   17th   a.  straightfor-  Avard offer to sell the property for $-10,000.-  ���i-M   or    better   still,   notify   the   Isthmian  immission that it can itself fix the reason-  :   5)1_ purchase price at what it's report said  ft;,would.(haye\recommended  the Panama  rcUtef*'-"���*' -'���'-���  ' "   am  .   ,TJi&����-pe in Good Health.  ���ffSWii'.'.-bfeK, ..December   31.���A   private  * disrAt*^h.*l"A<!'5')f-^*.b,l8 evening from Rome  f_ froiiV tlie. i&Mr^tirenil J.

By Dr. Hugh Watt.  The history of the town of Fort Steele,  under that name, dees not go back farther  than the year 1SS7, when major, now colonel  Steele, came in with a small force of the  Northwest Mounted Police, there being  some signs of insubordination among the  Indian population. .'David' Griffith has the  honor of giving the .place its present name,  and it is ono of which every resident of  the town is proud���stirring up,'as it does,  pleasant memories, personal and patriotic,  not only of the gallant oflicer whose name  it boars, but of the brave little troop of  Strathconas who went out from here two  years'ago, and amid the hills of the Transvaal fought so bravely for the queen and  ihe empire. There is. something in a name  and its associations after all, but name  and associations will not assure.to a town  that growth and prosperity which in these  days of keenest-competition all are so  eager!v striving for.-  lt was in the year of 1S03 that gold was  flrst "discovered on Finlay creek, and in the  following vear rich diggings were struck on  Wild Horse creek. Some of the dust from  these diggings being exhibited south of the  boundary -line, a rush for the new gold  lields immediately followed, and among  those who came in at this time (lStM) were  the late John T. Galbraith, William Fernie,  David Grillith, Robert-Dore, F; Quirk, and  P. Boyle���the latter .four o�� whom are still  in the district. The Hudson's Bay Company had had a small trading post near  the boundary, and this, following the in-,  (tux. of miners, was ������"moved- up to Wild  Horse cr6elc,* Ui"j"aii-'c5i-seh'vbehi6 at iUa  bend ot* the creek- near the hospital.'Something of a trading town too sprang up near  the diggings, and this nourished during the-  best years of the creek, but is now the  habitation ot* Chinese only, who still work  tho creek with varying success. - -     '  Besides the diggings on Wild Horse creek,  other portions of the district .were explored, and gold was discovered on Perry  creek in 1S0S, oh the Moyie and its tributaries, Palmer liar, Weaver, etc., in 1S69-  70, and on Bull river in 1871. In those early  clays, when .supplies'and" tools wore dear  and thus the expense of mining great, only  the shallowest and richest ground on  these creeks was worked. Various attempts  especially on Perry creek," were made to  reach* the deeper ground, but without much  success. The recent strike by Thompson,  Thies. and the Banks brothers, has demonstrated, however, that this can be done,  and a revival of placer mining.may be  looked for as a consequence, not only on  Perry creek, but others of the old historic  creeks, and not least on famous old White  Horse. .'���-.,  Tho present Chinatown on this creek,  about four miles from Fort Steele, was  known at iirst as Fishervllle, and was for  years the government headquarters for  the mining district of Kootenay. The flrst  gold commissioner was J. Bowler .Geoghan,  "appointed by"gove"rno"*rT>ouglas.���Hls^sue-=  cessors were j. C. Haines, P. O'Reilly,  judge Ball of Cariboo, W. Bushby, and  A. \V. Vowoll. William Fernie was also  for some time assistant commissioner.  In the year of 1870 John T. Galbraith  bought out the stock of the Hudson's Bav  Company, and from that date the firm of  Galbraith Brothers was the only -business  houso of Importance In the district, their  stores being located at Perry Creek,  Joseph's ' Prairie, Wild Horse, and "Gaf-  bratth's Ferry���a name which eventually  gave way to that of Fort Steele. The raiiph,  now the site of Cranbrook, was bought  by John T. Galbraith In 186! and sold "in  the SO's to colonel Baker. The beautiful site  of the St. Eugene mission was located by-  James W. Gulbrallh, and later sold to  Markley. from whom it was purchased for  the Oblat Fathers. The flrst mission priest  was father Fouquel. From a small beginning lt has grown in scope and Importance,  until now, with Its Indian Industrial school  and stately church, nil under the energetic  management of father Coccola, It is ono of  the most Important Institutes In the district. In 1S(!5, Mr. Phllllpps, now of Tobacco  Plains, was put in charge of the Hudson's  Bay Company's business here and was succeeded, on Ills becoming Indian agent, by  Mr. Hanllsty, now private secretary to  lord Strathcona.  May Be Thrown Open.  WASHINGTON, December 31.���If congress follows tho recommendation of the  war department, commerce between' .the  United States .and the Philippines and  among the islands themselves will- be  thrown open to foreign bottoms for an indefinite time. Already there is pending In  the house legislation looking to the exemp-:  tion of tho traffic betwen the Philippines  and tho United States from the operation  of the coastwise shipping laws, which requires all trade between United States  ports to be carried in American bottoms.  At the Instance of the war department,  this measure will be amended at once so  as to place the Inter-island traffic on the  same footing. Meanwhile, pending conclusive action by congress, the treasury will  continue the order suspending the application of the coastwise shipping laws to  Philippine commerce.  ���The French Shore Question.  ST. JOHNS, Newfoundland, December 3i.  ���The Anglo-French modus Vivendi covering the lobster question on the French  shore of Newfoundland expires today, the  1?st day of the year. It is not known .what  course will be adopted with regard to the  future of this question. Newfoundland Is'  not desirous of renewing the measure unless it be required by imperial exigencies.  The condition of affairs in South Africa  weighs largely with the colonial government in deciding what action will be taken  in this matter.   Mayor Buried  ORANGEVTLLE, Ontario, December 31.���  William Still, mayor of this town who died  on Thursday of last week, was buried yesterday, the funeral procession being the  largest ever seen here.  Although accurate data is not obtainable, it is safe to approximate the output of the  metalliferous mines of East and West Kootenay and Yale at $10,000,000 for the year 1901.  This is a slight gain over the year 1900, notwithstanding the shutdown of the mines at  Rossland because of the demand of the muckers for the same rate of wages paid in other  camps. The mines in East Kootenay, owing to the fall in the prices of lead and silver,  also suspended operations early in the summer. The losses, of Rossland and East Kootenay are offset by the gains made in the Boundary and the Slocan. Close on to 850,000  tons of ore in all were mined, .and the aggregate value ($10,000,000) shows that the ore  averaged over $12 a ton, which is a pretty good average, seeing that the ores of the  Boundary are low grade, probably the lowest grade of any ores in the world profitably  treated by fire concentration.    The figures are as follows;  ���;,-    -' -. TONS ..

Gilker came down- fromrRevelstoke  and opened a store in a tent which he  pitched on the ground now occupied by  the building on Vernon street in which  D. J. Robertson & Co.'s furniture store  is. Mr. Gilker was not postmaster, but  his partner (Frank B. Wells) who was  at Revelstoke was. The accommodations were the most primitive, and the  supply of stamps kept on hand was procured from captain George Haywood of  the stefmer Galena, he making the purchases at Bonner's Ferry from Uncle  Sam's postmaster at that place.  Mr. Gilker returned to Revelstoke"  in the fall of 1S89 and remained at that place until the spring of  1890." In his absence, Ed Atherton, who  was manager for J. Fred Hume & Co.,  acted as postmaster, _the letters being  kept in a candl-box nnd_r-*Ed's~b-dr  That winter Ned Bray carried the Nelson and Ainsworth mail from Kootenay  gtation, Idaho, a small way point on the  Northern Pacific railway. He had to  make a round trip once a month, and do  the greater part of the distance on foot;  but Ned had great experience in the business, and his deliveries were always  on time.  In the spring of 1900 Mr. Gilker returned to Nelson, and having erected a  building on Bakar street (his present  business premises) lie removed the post-  office frcm Vernon street tp Baker street,  and along with' the postofllce went- the  business of the village.  In 1893 Mr. Gilktjr was mado postmaster, and Nelson was divorcsd from^Rev-  elstoke. The business of the ofllco grew  steadily and there were a number of assistant postmast3rs, among others  "Jack" Lowes, H. V. Rudd, Duncan McBeath, Fred W. Walker, D. W. Rutherford, W. W. Bradley, Fred W. Burn,  and Mrs. Ida Coolly:' In 1899 the post-  office was removed from Mr. Gilker's  premises on Bakor street to the opera  house building, at the corner of Victoria  and Ward streets.  During all the time Mr. Gilker has had  charge of the office no registered mail  has gone astray, which is a record few  offices in Canada have. . Last night at  7:30 o'clock postoffbe inspector Dorman  transferred the oflice from James A.  Gilker to John Ay ton Gibson, and today  Mr. Gibson will be ihe responsible postmaster. He will retain Mrs. Cooley,  Harry McBeath, and night clerk Good-  child as clerks, and has appointed John  Lahore as assista'at postmaster.  On retiring, Mr. Gilker has the goodwill and the respect of every man and  woman who has transacted business'at  the Nelson postoffice, and he has seen  the business grow f;om two exchanges  to thirty-eight, and from a postoffice  that dealt almost entirely in United  States postage stamps to one that ranks  third in the province in volume of bus-  ness.  WHY NOTTRY IT IN NELSON?  -Let the Doctors Experiment.  CLEVELAND, .Mecembe- 31.���When  the health officer of Cleveland stopped  the ineffective vaccination crusade and  started    a    campaign   of    disinfection  >a-":a^t-sma'ipox'^ by  three-fourths of the physicians in the  city, and his plan Vas pronounced by  them utterly impracticable. But he  went ahead along his own line and ob-.  literated smallpox from Cleveland. The  suggestion that other cities profit by the  experience of Cleveland is similarly assailed by the doctors, who oppose their  opinions to demonstrated fact and take  no pains to state correctly the proposition which they condemn. One physician, admitting that formaldehyde is a  sure destroyer of disease germs, protests  that "it would be impossible to disinfect  every building, room, ooset and apartment in the city." Difficult, no doubt,  but net .impossible if it were necessary.  However, no such proposition has  been made, nor has 5t been asserted that  the entire city of Cleveland was so treated. Every district of Cleveland in which  "_mallpox=developed^was=furoigatedrand-  the health officer reports that in every  case where the formaldehyde gas system was usetLno further cases were reported from'mat immediate neighborhood. *!���    .  An ounce of fact is worth more than  a ton of theory, and against assertion  that "formaldehyde can never take the  place of vaccination" stands ��� tKe fact  that formaldehyde killed smallpox* in  Cleveland after vaccination had failed  to ckeck the pest, ,'t is declared by one  physician that while formaldehyde is  the best germicide known, it will not  prevent smallpox. He says: "vaccination and nothing els. so far discovered  will prevent the spr_ad of smallpox,"  and he cites from memory a German instance, ignoring the positive evidence  that the spread of smallpox was prevented in Cleveland by formaldehyde  and has not been prevented in other  cities by vaccination.  Vaccination is uot germicidal. It is  supposed to enable the system to resist  the attacks of smallpox germs or to  mitigate their- sevsrity, but it does not  destroy the germs. Apparently the  theory of the physicians is that when  all persons are rendered immune, the  germs of smallpox will die of starvation.  Formaldehyde kills the germs wherever  it finds them, and it is obvious that if  . there were^-no smallpox germs lurking  <#in the filth'of the city the presence of  unvaccinated persons would be no menace to the��public health.  Disinfection of districts infested by  .bacilli of' contagious diseases is practicable and unquestionably efficacious.  Wjiy there should be any opposition to  supplementing incomplete vaccination  with thorough disinfection is incomprehensible.  Will Quit.  MONTREAL, December 31.���The old  wholesale dry goods firm of J. G. McKenzie & Co., established in 1829, it is  announced is about to withdraw from  business, The heirs of late Hector Mac-  Kenzie, head of the firm, are anxious to  realize on their holdings,  Lord Strathcona is About Again.  MONTREAL, December 31.���The Star's  London correspondent cables: "Lord  Strathcona is about again.

SPOKANE, December 31.---"We. shall  have, a 20-drill compressor and a concentrator in place on the Continental  before spring, unless plans miscarry,"  ?aid A.^Klpchinann, resident - director of;  the new Idaho-CoAtinentai Mining company, lastnight. Mr. Klochrriinn is just  down from the mine, near Port Hill,  Idaho. , *  "It is looking fine," he said in discussing the property.' "We have 22 feet  of high grade concentrating ore in the  lower tunnel that will go ?26 to the ton.  In addition there is a 20-ihchstreak of  clean galena worth $80 a ton. The clean  ore, "which is of a magnificent quality,  is being sacked for shipment as fast as  broken down. The concentrating product is saved until the time comes when  we shall have a plant on the ���"������round capable of handling ihe lower grade stuff.  "The company, which is hacked by  iron miners of Duluth, Minnesota, is  planning to put in heavy machinery for  working the property on an extensive  scale.^-jy.e^are^satlstted^that the_jUon-_  tinental is one of the very biggest lead  mines in the country, and we mean to  operate it accordingly.  "As an instance of the. thorough way  in which the Idaho-Continental company  i going ahead with development, I may-  mention the fact that we have spent  $20,000 in improvements around the  mine in the past month. We now have  100 men at work. Thirty of them are  miners and teamsters getting opt ore,  and the others are at work on the road  which connects the property with Port  Hill. The road is nearly completed, and  will be in fine shape in a fortnight.  "We are meeting with only one trouble. The weather is so mild in the  Kootenay valley that there, is no snow  at all on tho lower part of ihe road, although there are five feet on the f-um-  mit. It is impossible, therefore, for us  to get out ore for shipment ,just now,  and we are eagerly waiting for more  snow. The company has made favorable  terms with the Everett smelter to handle the output of the mine, and we expect to ship 1000 tons this winter. That  will be clean high grade ore, for the  concentrator will not be working until  spring.  Iowa Controls the Government.  WASHINGTON, December 31.���When  Leslie M. Shaw of Iowa becomes secretary of the treasury three men from one  state will practically,cqpjt-ol the government of the United -States. Such a concentration of power is so unusual to be  unique in the history^ of the republic.  Speaker Henderson and senator Allison,  both of Iowa, endorsed the appointment  of governor Shaw, ard it was only after  consultation with them that h,e accepted  the position. Speaker Henderson can  arbitrarily control tn�� house. Senator  Allison, as chairman of the senate committee on appropriations, can almost  dominate legislation in that body. Secretary of the treasury Shaw will revise  the estimates of all governmental departments. He can make himself the  autocrat of the administration. The selection of governor Shaw to be secretary  of the treasury is regarded here as the  best political stroke yet made by president Roosevelt A large proportion of  financial dissatisfaction originates in the  west.    The   east,   which   controls   the  ii  Battle Eoyal in Ohio.  COLUMBUS, Ohio, December 31.���The  fight over the organization of the Ohio  legislature took definite form today at  noon, when the Hanna side of the controversy announced its slate. There is  no Hanna candidate for president of the  senate pro tern; W. B. Uhl of Cleveland  is slated for clerk of the senate; W. S.  McKinnon of Ashtabula for speaker of  the house, and Burgees L. McElroy for  clerk. The Foraker ticket is as follows.  For president of the. senate, Frank B.  Archer of Bellaire; for clerk, sheriff  Scobey of Troy; for speaker of the  house, Aaron E. Price of Athens; for  clerk,: Harvey V. Speelman of Marietta.  Each side accepted the terms of the  other. The candidates are on the ground,  and there will be a battle royal from  how on until the caucus on January 4th.  GOODERHAM IS BOYCOTTED  BAILROADS SHORT  HAVE NOT ENOUGH CARS  AND  ENGINES..  --������v5  j-j  -IS-  '_*.���-.  Want None of His Whisky.  ROSSLAND,.December 31.���A strong feeling of indignation Is being expressed all  > over Canada regarding the action of the  Gooderham syndicate towards the employees of their mines ln Rossland. Vigorous action is being taken to assist the  miners in their, struggle. The following  article, taken from the Vancouver World  of December 24th, expresses the feeling of  ��� the workingmen of the west:  "Tho labor men of the province are asked  to drink no more of Gooderham & Worts'  whiskies; at least not.until such times as  the Rossland labor troubles in connection  with the mines in which the Gooderham  syndicate is interested .are filially settled.  The Vancouver Trades and Labor Council  held its regular meeting" last night and at-  ter aidiscussion of the subject resolvea to  boycott the firm.- This, perhaps, is the  most aggressive action'taken by the labor  people against any of the Arms: who control  the mines. Usually they are so situated  that they are not getatable, - but in this  instance the men feel that they c_n hit  one of the owners by another means. Gooderham, the manufacturer of whisky, is connected with the syndicate of Gooderham Ac  Blackstock, which owns the War Eagle  and Center Star mines at Rossland, where  the strike is at- present In progress. Considerable of the productions of the distillery firm come to this province, and as  the labor element forms a large portion of  the population; thte boycott will mean  something. The action taken last night by  the Trades and Labor Council was decisive and after'the- matter had been fully  discussed'. The other unions ln the province  will be asked to join.in and make the boycott gen6i'al.''-*_i��-s;d��js*in*vitingall *-ubordin^  ate unions throughout the province to join  with them in eschewing any of the products of the Gooderham.& Worts distillery,  in consequence' of Mr." Gooderham's prominent identification with the Rossland  mines, In which owners and employers  have been at outs-for some time pas>t, lt  has been decided to extend the proscription to other large - concerns in which  Gooderham capital is invested, notably the  Manufacturers'i,Life Assurance Company,  and-the Bank'of Toronto."  Among the letters received by the Trades  and Labor Council of Rossland, promising  aid and support, are many from the extreme east.

NEW ORLEANS, December 31.���President Kruttschnitt of the Southern Pacific  states that about only one-third of tho  new engines ordered by the Southren Pacific have been delivered, and it will be  impossible to get all the remainder before-  the middle of February. With its 8000 miles  ot road, the company has been short 1000  cars daily. This means a delay of 24 hours  on shipments, as tho dally movement is  from 3000 to 4000 cars. On some lines with  only 300 miles of road, the daily shortage  has been from 5000 to 6000 cars. One of tho  flrst things that- demanded Mr. Krutt-  schnltt's attention the other day when he  returned from New York was a problem-  growing out of "the car shortage. Tied up  at Houston, Texas, were between 300 and  400 cars of New York freight, owing to tho  lack of engines to move. The only remedy  for this condition was to divert these shipments to Galveston and load them on ono  or two ships. The cars thus released will  be used in getting the product of- the rice  and sugar belts to market. In sending the  freighc to New York by water, the delay  will not be greater and not as great as  would be caused by a continuation of 1ho  blockade at Houston.  MONTREAL, December 31. ��� Eastern  shippers, especially those in fhe northeastern states of the "Union, are in far  worse plight than those ot the west Tho  shortage of cars which is said to exist in ,  Manitoba is even more severely felt acrosa - ^*  the border. Mills, furnaces, and collieries -_  are shut down all through Pennsylvania, */<���  New York, Ohio, and New England becausa , **���  of the dearth of cars on the big American ~ '\  lines The fact is the great wave of pros-J*"*, j  rpelty which has swept over this continent" y  owing to good times and unusually abun-      �� ^  dant harvest, has caused such a huge and v   sudden demand for freight cars that tho' ~ *"*  transportation companies are not able to **��� *  supply them in numbers sufficient to ,re-" t '^  lieve the blockade Compared with th- -��� ,  deadlock In the great producing centers ot '-,  the United States, the slight congestion; *��� -  from which shippers in the Canadians.

Shippers all      "-'  over the country are complaining bitterly  of  their  inability  to   get  cars  enough  to  handle their freight. This condition of' affairs  is  said  to  be due to  the  unusually  hehvy  'traffic   westward,   and-Hv-*   stork... c J  coal, and lumber ate moving tn -ucluenor-  mous  quantities   that  it   is   impossible   to       '  tell how many cars are needed from day;  to day.

"Sir Thomas  told me," said Mr. Tains, "he would challenge, for the cup until he won lt or was .  convinced that It could not be won. I certainly think sir Thomas is very much In-  earnest and that his desire to win the cup  comes from sporting motives only, i  wanted to get him to talk about otlier  things, but his heart Is set on that cup."-    ',  A Crazy Jeweler..

For   the   tenth   time,   The   Tribune  :   wishes its readers and patrons a liuppy  "N|ew Year.     On   December   29th,   .18.2,  r   The Tribune .nade its first good resoiu-  ,   lions,   and it has   been   making   th.ni  :   right along at least onC3:.a year ever  -   since.   In December, 1892, The Tribune  w.as issued once a week, and its readers  '��� and patrons lived in the mining camps  in West Kootenay.    Now it is  issued  -..  every day in the year except Sundays  and holidays   and it has   readers and  patrons   at hundreds   of postoflices   in  America, besides a scattering few in the  Old Country and in South Africa.   The  ���   Tribune was started on borrowed*"moncy  and it has been borrowing money ever  since.    It has always been printed on  good paper by good workmen. While its  editorial   utterances   have   not   always  ���been=acceptable_lto=alL_the_.p-ople,^jie.t  all the people who are fair-minded concede that The Tribune has always been  true to   what   it   considered   the   best  interests of. Nelson and Kootenay. Wo  line has ever appeared in The Tribune  that could not be read by a good woman,  and no good man has ever gone astray  by following the advice given on its editorial page.   An evidence that The 1: i-  bune is today what it wa. in Decern her,  1-92, is the fact that its patrons then are  its patrons   now.    On   December   29th,  1S92, W. b\ Teetzel & Co;., the Dank of  Montreal, Malone & Tregilius, Thomas  Madden, Jacob Dover, James McDonald  it Co., Wilson & Perdue, the Hank of  J.rltish Columbia,  and others had advertisements in The Tribune, and Ucy  or their successors  are   advertising' .in  The  Tribune   today.      Some   of   these  firms (notably the   Bank   of   Montreal  and W. P.

How many, of  those mentioned above, and they are  nearly all liviug, would prefer the dsiys  of '92 to the days of the present?  The Nation'. Financial Standing.  The figures showing the present liuau-  cial standing of Canada, as supplied in  the public accounts' blue book, just issued at Ottawa, are, on the whole, satisfactory;   though it is not to be denied  that the shewing made by the Intercolonial is a disappointment.    During the  year the net debt increased by ?2':-S-,-  49G, but the total capital expenditures,  inclusive   of additions   to  the   sinking  funds, was over eleven millions.    Thus  the great bulk of the capital expenditures   were   met  out . of   the   revenue.  Among the permanent expenditures was  the payment of ?800,000 to public works  in the Yukon, a very proper outlay, in  view of the splendid- revenue-producing  powers of that district.   Statistics show  that during the last six years, the _u-  kon has turned into the Dominion treasury $6,700,193, while the total outlay of  all kinds in   that, country   during .the  same period has aggregated 85,945,21-���  showing a clear gain of three-quarters  of a million dollars to the Dominion  KOOTENAY. ���..

Showrooms Mason & Itli-oh Pianos,  treasury. Other capital expenditures  were nearly four million dollars on the  government railways, and two and a  half million dollars in railway subsidies,  the chief items being the sums paid to  the Pontiac and Pacific Junction, the  Great Northern of Quebec, the Canadian Northern, and the Crow's Nest  Pass railways���all being roads that are  opening up and developing new and  valuable territories. Improvements to  the St. Lawrence waterways cost $400,-  000. The surplus on consolidated fund  operations for the year was ?5,648,--o���  one of the most handsome profits of the  kind in the Dominion's financial history. We hear a good deal from bilious  critics of the government about this  being a mere bookkeeping surplus, not  an actual one. These people want all  the income, from "whatever source, put  on one side of 'the ledger, and all the  outlay on the other; the resulting balance showing surplus or deficit, as the  case may be. In defence of the present  method, it may be.urged, flrst, that it  was adopted at Confederation, and has  been continued to the present time by  successive finance ministers; and, in the  second place, that it is in itself right.  There is a difference between capital  and-ordinary o^genditure, as every business man knows. To illustrate this let  us take a concrete case. A business  house making an average annual prolit  of $15,000, during the year builds a warehouse costing 1*325,000, thereby increasing its yearly outlay by that sum, which  -j up all the profits and $10,000 in addition. Now, does the year's operations  show a surplus of $15,000 or a deficit of  $10,000? To state the facts is to supply  the answer. The bookkeeping methods,  which are proper when applied to a business concern, are proper to the conduct  of the nation's business as well; and Lhe  finance minister's report would be entirely misleading were it not to .-naive  a distinction between ordinary and capital expenditure. j  Frepairing for War  BUENOS AYRES, December 31.���The  Diario today announced that the Argentine government had entered into  contracts with ship builders in Italy for  the immediate construction of two ar-.  mored vessels of 8500 tons at a cost of  17,000,000 francs each.

The school geographies would have to be  changed very frequently if an attempt  were made ty keep up with the rapid  march of chango in the Northwest. A paragraph from Winnipeg informs us that" the.  first train on the Canadian Northern from  Dauphin arrived at Winnipeg on the evening of December 26th. The meaning of that  means that the missing link in the company's system, namely, that between  Gladstone and Beaver, has been completed,  and that within a few days an important  section of a transcontinental route will be.  in, full operation. It is understood that a  week's work on that portion of the line  between Winnipeg and Port Arthur will  connect the two places, a fact which,  coupled with the announcement of the Beaver-Gladstone connection, is an assurance  to us that the new line is in operation from  fort Anhur through a wholly new portion of the province of Ontario, thence by  a short connection through the state of  Minnesota it enters at the .southwest corner of Manitoba and thence on to Winnipeg through land that only waits railway  communication to attract settlers. From  Winnipeg the road runs by way of Beaver  and Gladstone to Luke Dauphin, Gilbert  vlJlains and tlie Swan river, into the territory of the Saskatchewan, .ready at an  early day to take its llight along tne banks  of the Saskatchewan to l'rince Albert, J_U-  monton, and thence into the Rockies and  to the _"aeiilc ocean.  For some time this was a dream, but  with the actual completion of 450 miles of  the main line and with the acquisition  of important branch lines in the province  of Manitoba the dreams ot its projectors  have to that extent become a tangible reality. The portion of the line from Port  Arthur lo Hainy Lake is through a country presenting considerable engineering difficulties, but from the banks of the Swan  river there should not be any costly work,  so that we may look to see the continuation"  of the lino westward to the foothills soon  in actual being. Then, of course, will begin  another serious part of the undertaking���  the passage through the hills of northern  British Columbia.  The line,  when completed, will virtually  open   up   new   territory   of   greater   extent  than the majority of European kingdoms."  In New Ontario a large part of the territory   is   rocky   woodlands,   known   to  contain   mineral,   and   whose   future   population  depends  largely  upon  what discoveries might be made. On the Rainy river the  railway   will   supply   an   agricultural   dis-  rtict that has been settled lor many years.  Throughout  its   whole   course   in   the  province of Manitoba it will run through jrood  mineral   lands  and  the  same  can  be said  of the  branches in  that  province.  It does  not attempt to dispute with the Canadian  Paciiic  railway  the   region   through  which  that railway runs. It makes for the'north  and runs along a base an average tuhy aw  miles north of the pioneer railway, or,'say,  300   miles   from   the   boundary   line.   Those  who have been comparing the Dominion to  a. Ilshing pole  and  other elongated   things  of that sort should specially note this fact.  Scotland and Ireland could be placed side  by side on  the boundary line and  neither  Capo Wrath  nor Malin Head would  touch  tho   new   line,   and   in   width   Assiniboia  alone  would contain  them  and  have  some  '    to spare. We realize very inadequately the  ���.   meaning and the extent of the vast foun-  j    dations  that are in  that western  country  j    now being laid. AVe will not be many years  I    older   before  locomotives  will   be   blowing  its whistle on docks at Athabasca Landing,  I    and be answered by steamers which have  f    literally come from the Arctic sea. At the  i    Landing the railway will be in communi-  1    cation" with   thousands     of miles   of   the  ,    north.. We do not think that we are under  any   delusion   with   regard   to   the   region  in  which  those  vast  lakes and  navigable  rivers lie. Granted that most of it is outside the productive belt, it nevertheless remains  a   fact   that   scattered  as  industry  =may--be=iii-those-rcgions-thc_v'ery-vastness-  of   them,   coupled   with   the   accessibility  which   their   waterways   impart   to   them,  will in a very few years make a large aggregate of business. No one who reads Ihe  evidence gathered by the senate committee  a dozen years ago can doubt that the curtain is just beginning to roll up on a drama  of settlement and civilization  on a colossal scale.  Has Fitz Gone Back?  Many times since a year ago last August  when Bob Fitzsimmons engaged in his last  light, tho question has been asked: "Has  Fitz gone back?" The old fellow looks no  older than he did at that time, but whether  . he could put up a good fistic argument with  Jim Jeffries remains undetermined.  Probably none is belter to tell the ilstic  capabilities of Fitz than Tom Sharkey,  for he. on Saturday night, boxed un exhibition bout with the ex-champlon, and this  is what he says of Fitz:  "You can bet Fitz is the same old fellow.  Gone back? Anybody that talks that way of  Bob should call at Bellevue hospital and  have his sanity tested.  "It was the same old Fitz I boxed on Saturday night. He was just as quick as he  ever was; he had his old punch and he  stepped around like a youngster. 1 tell  vou he surprised me. 1 did not have a show  to make him look even a candidate for the  has-beens class.  "Understand, our bout was only a friendly one, but once in a while Fitz wouid  sneak in a jolt to show that he still had  that punch, lie skic-stepped in his own old-  fashioned "way, and altogether it does not  seem to me that he has in the least forgotten a thing he knew about the fighting  game.  "if one of thoso so-called champions butt  into him thinking that they may earn glory  bv beating him, and count on him as a  cinch, then what a sorry lot they would be  after hostilities ceased. There would not be  anything  to  it  but  Fitz.  "But, after all, I guess Fitz will never  light again. His word is as good as ho is  a lighter, and everybody knows how good  that is.  "Honestly, I believe he is as good as he  ever was in his life. With the necessary  training 1 do not believe that Jeffries  would have anything of a walk-over. In  fact, Fitz would have an even break, but  just how such a battle would terminate 1  would rather not say. But Fitz is the same  old clever fellow with the punch. His has-  been days are not yet reached, and I doubt  the ability of some people to put him  there."  The New Year's Resolutions.  There is plenty of room in the mining industry to assimilate the customary  New Year resolutions and adapt them  to useful ends. During the past year  enough has taken place to justify a readjustment along many lines, if the best  ">\ji)terests of the vocation are to be serv-  I  SAVINGS BANK DEPARTMENT:  Interest allowed on deposits.

One-  stupendous fake organized to mislead  investors will hoodoo and ruin the prospects of a thousand tirst-class properties. While it is true large, capital as  veil as small must take the ordinary  chances of business in one vocation as  well, as another it is equally true that  any temporary advantage-secured to the  individual through, unloading valueless  property reacts disastrous upon the  wider interests of the community.  Hence it is a good resolution to frown  down the over-booming of mines or  mining districts. Every adverse expert  report injures the property experted  and the district in which it is located.  The report on a creditable property estimating its value above the claims  made by the promoter is.worth infinitely  more than if it falls below such  claims. Regardless of the amounts involved it is easy to determine which report would most favorably offset the investor in mining properties. The day  is past when investors scramble for mining stock, fearing it will get beyond  their reach if they take time to properly  investigate into its merits. Every min-.  ing proposition placed on the" market  these days must undergo a rigid scrutiny; and it will be a good New year  resolution for pormoters to hereafter  represent salable properties on their  merits, assuming nothing not j:istined  by geological and mineralogical conditions,     r.       ��� . :" .','���  Any state or community acquiring a  reputation along these lines will secure  vastly more capital for investment than  if other and less honorable means! were  employed. Capitalists -have learned to  look with more or less suspicion upon  the exhorbitant claims which promoters are often tempt.a to mal'e in the  hope of developing the appetite for  enormous profits in a speculative venture. Conservatism in a promoter is  as essential in the long run as it is in  the investor. The lack of it will prove  inimical to the interests of ea>;h.  These reflections grow out of the) belief that, an era of-.unparall.eled activity  in mining lias dawned and th'.it ^capital,  in recognition of its most available opportunities, is ready to improve them.  There is no sign in the horoscope of  this country's industrial future that does  point to new life and vigor in mining.  .For the time gold and copper mining  will usurp attention, but in the near  future the production of silver will be  added under conditions that insure the  permanency of that important branch  of the industry.���Butte M'.ning World.

CHAFFEE AND TAFT CLASH  Filipinos Promised Too Much.  WASHINGTON, December 31.���Absolute,  confirmation was received at the war department today of the reports in circulation for several months of friction between  governor Taft, president of the Philippine  commission, and general Chaffee. The information came from general Chaffe himself in a letter dated November lath.  " l?y request,'"iKHrpTfFU6=H^6t"tIft^ietter"rb-"  ferring to his differences with governor  Taft is tyitliheld. He says, however, that  the great mistake wa.s in promising too  much to the Filipino.!* in' the beginning.  At the same time, hovever, he praises vice-  governor Wright for his strong speech in  favor of the treason and sedition bill recently passed by the Philippine commission.  Vice-governor AVright told the Filipino  leaders that peace must be established and  that the United States would not let up in  the slightest in Its purpose to put down sedition. General Chaffee says in his letter:  '���The situation improves every day. You  may think the progress slow. I admit that  it seems so to anyone at a distance, not  familiar with the situation and the character of the people. In time they will be  forced to udmlt that our purpose to secure  peace Is fixed and that the United States  cannot be swerved from its purpose at any  cos.t.  "My 'opinion Is Unit tjiere ha.s been altogether too much talk hitherto of what the  Filipino may hope from us. The commission recently passed a treason and sedition act. Vice-governor Wrlght'H speech  opened their eye". It was from the shoulder and a wonderfully good blow. The  good it has done is very great. The politicians are beginning to act In a war they  should have long ago���that is, using their  influence for peace."  .Gcncr.il Chaffee then alludes to the situation in Samar and the efforts of general  Smith to suppress the natives there. He  shows that he upholds the vigorous measures adopted by general Smith and remarks:  "If Smith can mako a ten-strike in Samar  by a. vigorous course there, which il: is  hoped ho may do, tho influence will be immense toward subduing Malavar, tho hardest nut in; the basket which we have to  crack at  this time."  Squaring the Prince.  AMSTERDAM, December 31.���With the  almost complete recoy-jry of queen Wil-  helmina Trom her recent serious illness,  there has conteTa,l_fn"ip> in the production  ot. stories of her unhiippiness with her  husband, prince Henry. Many of the Dutch  newspapers from which came the first news  of the unpleasant incidents that marked  the period just preceding the illness of the  queen, are now telling the public how nice  a prince Henry really is. As a matter of  fact the stories were grossly exaggerated,  The greatest reason for a coolness between  the queen and her consort has been a failure on tho part of Henry to realize his  wife's ambition that he should be a statesman. He has declined to take nnv Interest  In the stnte council, having found'them not  to his liking and being too profoundly impressed with the determination of the councillors to teach him tlie peculiar brand of  statecraft that finds favor at the Dutch  capita]. Henry's inclination is towards agriculture. He believes in scientific farming.  He loves lo put his ideas on the subject  into practice, lie has employed a great deal  of his time in improving the grounds at  i-let Loo. Ho has also accepted tho honorary presidency of several agricultural societies, und he takes much interest ln the  meetings of these organizations. He Is  planning Important farming innovations on  tho crown estates,  and these are as dis  tasteful to the members of the council as  statecraft is to him. Those who are friendly toward the prince declare that his position as consort is one of the most difficult occupied by any member of European  royalty.  The Venez elan Difficulty.  BERLIN, December 31.���Until Dr. O.  Schmidt Ledn, the German minister to  Venezuela, arrives at Caracas, which will  bo about January 5th, nothing will be done  by tho German charge d'affaires there,  Herr Von Pilgrim-Palazzi, to press president Castro further. Dr. Schmidt Leda  bears instructions from the German government. The carrying out of the successive steps outlined in these instructions  will end in coercive measures, which will  probably be applied in four or five weeks'  'time, if in the meantime) intermediate  measures shall havo failed. It is possible,  however, that even this may shorten this  period. Inasmuch as. Germany is possessed  of the goodwill of tlio United Slates in  this matter, baron-Von Riththofen, imperial secretary of foreign affairs, desires to  give president Castro ample time to recog-  nizo this fact and also that Germany Is  really in earnest in the matter. Germany  is not going to act the moment when a  foreign difficulty might strengthen president Castro's hold on his country by uniting Venezuelan national feeling against  Germany, it is understood at the foreign office here that the United States is not only  tolerant to Germany's purposes toward  Venezuela, but pleased that Germany, and  not the United States, is to undertake to  discipline Venezuela into paying her debts  and keeping faith with foreigners doing  business there. Germany's action with regard to Venezuela has ben likened here  to France's recent course concerning Turkey, which was considered wholesomely  to have effected the controversies between  Turkey and other countries.. The German cruiser Gasalee is still at Kiel," although she has been ordered to sail to the  Caribbean sea. Her departure is delayed  by necessary outfitting. The German press  today prints with satisfaction copious extracts from American editorials disapproving of the dispatch from Washington to a  New York newspaper, printed Sunday, to  the effect that persons of importance in the  American war and navy departments considered war between Germany and the  United States to be Inevitable.  Maclean's Programme,  W. F. Maclean, M. P., will ask the  people of Toronto to make nim. their  mayor because by so doing they will  endorse the principle of public owner-,  !>ip of great public franahisss, for  which principle he stands, By this appeal Mi*. Maclean will not succeed in  cetting a fair expression of public opinion on the question of public ownership.  To ask people'to vote for him in order  to endorse the abstract principle is not  the right way to bring about reforms  which he favors. It is too much like a  plebiscite on the abstract principle of  prohibition. It will result in nothing.  What he should do is to formulate ���= a  definite plan for municipalizing any or  all of the public services which,, in his  opinion, it is practicable to transfer  from private to public ownership, and  appeal to the electors on that platform.  The answer to his appeal could then be  accepted as satisfactory evidence of the  state of public opinion on the question.  Does Mr. .Maclean favor the municipalization of the street railway, the gas and  electric light services, and the establishment of a municipal electric power  service? If so, let him say so, show the  people how the' thing can be done, and  invite them to endorse his definite proposition. If (they do endorse it, such  an endorsatibn-would give, the principle of public' ownership a tremendous  boom in this country.���Hamilton Herald. ���  __  Morgan Sues a Woman*  BALTIMORE, December 31.���J. Pier-  pont Morgan of New York, through his  local attorneys, Barton, Wilmer, Ambler  & Stewart, filed a petition in the circuit  court here today asking that a decree  be entered for $1700 against Ellen Williams in his behalf. The petition is  brief and simply states that Mr. Morgan  loaned Miss Williams $1650, and that she  gave him a mortgage on. her property  for the amount. He-states the loan was  never paid. By the terms of the will of  the late DeWitt div-ton Winans, who  died November 27th, 1892, a life, interest  in his estate was left to his widow, Mrs.  -Mathilda���Felice���Winans.���-Upon=-hej*-  death the income from the entire estate, valued at $150,000, was to go to  Miss Williams. Mrs. Winans died January 22nd, 1895, and Mr. Morgan's mortgage was executed a few days afterward  by Miss Williams. How Mr. Morgan  and Miss Williams Ci.me together in a  financial deal involving "so small an  amount, which she could have obtained  at any bank here with ease, is not set  forth. Miss Williams is a peculiarly attractive woman and lives in a style befitting one of wealth. She makes frequent journeys to New York but her  name never figures in the lists of guests  at fashionable entertainments there.  Fatal Bow in a Church.  PIT-ETON. Ohio, December 31,-Slx men  wero probably fatally wounded ln a general  fight at a t-mnj.1 country church at Pike  postofllce last night, and a panic gecurred  among the worshippers. During a religious  service Charles D. Orrin appeared and announced thai they had come to clean out  the Le'ggs, a family with which the Days  had hud frequent quarrels. A general light  ensued in the church and around it. Women and children shrieked and sought  safety from revolvers and knives by jumping from the windows. Only the minister,  Rev. Mr. Rowe, remained. At the close six  men lay wounded, Orrin and Charles Day,  Leslie Legg, Joseph Williams, John Currant, and Lebannon Williams. Physicians  were called from Piketon and Idaho to attend tho wounded men, and the sheriff  notified. It is believed the six men will die.  Many others were slightly injured.
