The board of trustees will meet  and elect officers in the.ollice of the secretary on January 29th. Mr. Carnegie's purpose as stated by himsell, in requesting the  various trustees to become members of the  board, is as follows: "lt is proposed to  found in the city of Washington an institution which, with the co-operation ot* the  Institutions now or hereafter established,  there or elsewhere, shall In the broadest  and most liberal manner encourage the  application of knowledge to the Improvement of mankind, provide such buildings,  laboratories, books and apparatus as may  be needed and afford instruction of an advanced character to students whenever  and wherever found inside or outside of  schools properlv qualified to profit thereby.  Among its aims are these: (1) To increase  the efficiency of the universities and other  institutions of learning throughout tho  country bv using and adding to their existing facilities and by aiding teachers in the  various institutions, for experimental and  other work, of these institutions as far as  may be advisable. (2) To discover the exceptional man In every department of  study whenever and wherever found, and  enable him. by financial aid, to make the  work for which he seems specially designed  his life work.

NEW YORK, January 9.���From Vienna  comes the news that Herr Bartelmus, an  Austrian electrician, has invented a system for preventing railway accidents, says  the London correspondent of the Tribune.  The invention, it is said, makes It possible  to prevent accidents arising out of trains  meeting one another, or from one train  running into the rear of another.  Granby Smelter at Work.  GRAND FORKS, January 9.���The Granby  smelter, which closed down last week, in  order to enable the blowers to be connected  with the two new furnaces, resumed operations vesterday.

Deceased was  63 years old. .  IS ONE DAY EARLIER THIS YEAR  Legislature Convenes on February 20th.  ENGLISHMEN   ARE    RILED  Over Von Buelow's Speech.  LONDON, January 9.���The stinging  rebuke administered to Mr. Chamberlain, the British colonial secretary, by  chancellor Von Buelow, in the reichstag  at Berlin yesterday, as a result of the  former's reference in his speech at Edinburgh, October 25th, last, to the con-,  duct of the German army In the war  with France, 1870-71, has markedly increased the bitterness of l_nglish-G.r-  man discord. The St. James Gazette,  which calls count Von Buelow a "swaggering pharisee," says "His offensive  speech has brought the growing irritation between the two countries into a  dangerous sphere. Even if Von Buelow  had been the head of a Republican ministry, dependent for its life on a fickle  popular opinion, there would have been  little excuse for his gross perversion of  facts and breach of international comity." The St James Gazette concludes  with expressing the belief that the  "Pharisaical impertinence of the German press is profoundly distasteful to  the kaiser, who is manfully striving to  stem the torrent, which is bearing his  empire toward the Niagara of disaster,"  and warns Germany that, both eastward  and westward of her there is a menace which holds her armed to the teeth  in sleepless vigilance, and when the expected catastrophe, in southeastern Europe, leaves her alone, between the upper  and nether millstone, she may bitterly  regret loss of the good will of this country, which she is now flinging away with  both hands.  Von Buelow's words cannot fail to be  hailed throughout Europe as "a snub to  Great Britain," says the Pall Mall Gazette in an editorial headed the "Retort  Discourteous."  The Globe accuses Von Buelow of "deliberately pandering to the lowest and  most illinformed elements of public  opinion in Germany."  The Globe then lectures emperor  William for not "checking the stream  of foul lies and obscene caricatures in  the German press."  The Westminster Gazette alone depreciates regarding Von Buelow's  speech as "a cause for further disturbing the relations between Great Britain  and Germany."  -���Such~comments_as these_JiuotejLabo^  are bound to further inflame the public,  already angered, in consequence of the  snub administered by emperor William  a few days ago in the North German  Gazette, the chief mouthpiece of the  German government, in which a note  appeared saying that the statement in  the English press to the effect that the  German emperor had pressed the prince  of Wales to attend* his toirthJay celebration, was untrue, and explaining that,  "king Edward had suggested the visit  and that emperor William had sent an  invitation."  In the reichstag yesterday, after cou.it  Von Selberg Wernigerode had denounced recent references of the British colonial secretary to the German army,  count Von Buelow made a speech. He  said: "The last speaker alluded to a  reference an English minister recently  made to the German army's conduct in  the Franco-German war. Should ���e,  however, wish to adduce examples  from abroad, it is advisable that he  should proceed with caution, as otherwise he may incur the risk of not only  being misunderstood, but also of hurting foreign feelings, even though, as I  am ready to assume, there was in tlie  case of the present instance, no intention of so doing. It is quite comprehensible that a people which has become  so thoroughly a part and parcel of its  glorious army as in Germany, should  revolt at any appearance on the history  of our glorious struggle for national  unity being misrepresented. Such a  critic, in the words of Frederick the  Great, concerning traducers of hims-if  and the German army, is 'simply biting  on granite.' "   Irish Land Leaguers.  DUBLIN, January 9.���John Redmond,  chairman of the United Irish League, announced today that William Redmond and  Joseph Devlin of Belfast, will sail for the  United States at the end of the month,  to complete the work of organizing the  league in America, in accordance with a decision arrived at by the preliminary meeting held in its headpuarters yesterday.  Mr. Redmond and Devlin are going to the  United States at the urgent request of the  Irish league of America, which Is arranging  their tour of that country.  Body Snatching  KINGSTON, Ontario, January 9.���Thieves  last night broke into a vault in St. Mary's  cemetery. Division street, and stole the  remains of Mrs. Hughes, Miss Haley und  Miss Mary Croliey, of Kingston.  VICTORIA, January 9.���[Special to The Tribune.]���The legislative assembly has  been called3 to meet on February 20th, which is one day earlier than last year. The result  of the municipal election in Vancouver is said to have some significance, as the defeated  candidate for mayor was supported by J. F. Garden, M.P.P., and captain Tatlow, M.P.P.,  both of whom are opposing the Dunsmuir government. The successful candidate was  supported by the News-Advertiser, which is edited by ex-finance minister Cotton, and it is  intimated that Cotton may be asked to join the Dunsmuir government as finance  minister.  EVERYBODY   IS   GUESSING  At the Political Situation.  VICTORIA, January 9.���The political  atmosphere was somewhat disturbed by  the visit early in theweek of five of the  disaffected and .erstwhile supporters sjf  the government. They came to Victoria  to take part in a conference, but by  whom suggested, or with whom they  conferred a mysterious silence, is being preserved. Rumors of all kinds are  plentiful, but the net result was the  calling of a convention at New Westminster, in which they expect every  member of the provincial legislature  who is not in accord with the Dunsmuir administration to take part. If the  man on the street is to be believed, the  calling of another New Westminster convention was necessitated by the fact  that seven into five will not go, and  there are only five cabinet positioas  available, and as Island members who  conferred with the Malnlanders were too  modest to forego their own claims \o  recognition, somewhat of a deadlock  looked possible. It is understood that  Mr. Bodwell received the situation by  suggesting that he would prefer to  choose his own cabinet, and that in any  event it would be very unwise to leave  no position-open with which to reward  some waverer whose support might oe  needed. In one way their visit might  strengthen the government immensely.  Each and every one of them gave a certain influential politician to understand  that they would not consider those  against them who were not openly with  them, and that though they might be  willing to accept his assistance as a follower, in no other capacity could he  serve them. As it is understood that  he expressed his willingness to lead  them, should they succeed in overthrowing the government, and 3S it is well  known that he has most discreetly refrained on every occasion from hurting  the feelings of his erring brethren, such  base ingratitude came to him as an  overwhelming shock, and another most  strenuous orator will be in evidence on  the government side in the forthcoming  campaign.  But, singular to relate, Mr. Bodwell's  declaration of leadership did not receive  that warm reception from his chosen future associates, which the "little Lib-  eral_-clique_fondly^exp.ec_teA_^he_Coa-v  servative members of the opposition received a pretty plain intimation from the  local Conservative leaders that the recognition of Mr. Bodwell's -laims would  be answered by their party repudiating  any connection therewith. As prominent Conservatives pointed out, Mr. Bodwell is virtually discredited with his  own party, and for a few provincial Conservatives to take it upon themselves  to hand over to Mr. Bodwell the destinies and welfare, and, incidentally the  patronage of Conservatism in this province, in order that he might therewith  regain for himself and his insignificant  following the prestige which they once  enjoyed in the Liberal ranks, was altogether too much of a good thing. E. G.  Prior and the majority of prominent  and influential Conservatives look upon  Mr. Bodwell's candiaature with very  mixed feelings. Mr. Bodwell brought  every influence to bear to _ecure their  support, but with little success. These  few, who in the flr_t instance agreed to  support him, are beginning to realize  that they have possibly made a mistake  in pledging their support to a gentleman who has shown such a facility in  the past for supporting his own party  actively, only when he wished to use it,  and they are becoming lukewarm in  their enthusiasm.  But Mr. Bowell's Liberal supporters  are becoming more apprehensive than  even his Conservative friends. So bitter  is the feeling engendered by his candidature amongst the Liberals of this city,  that the "little Liberals," seeing themselves in a hopeless minority in their  support of him, are beginning to fear  that the efforts they are making on his  behalf will be punished by the party  with political oblivion. The Liberal executive met on Thursday evening to  take action in regard to the Vancouver  convention. Most of the "little Liberals" are members of this executive,  and one of them attempted, in the inter  ests of Mr. Bodwell, to question the advisability of having a convention at all,  claiming that he saw in it, or behind it  the Machiavellian hand of Joseph Martin. Had not a very staunch and respected Liberal quieted matters by having it referred to a general meeting of  the association, to be held on the 13th  of this month, the meeting would have  ended in a row. This is not comforting  to Mr. Bodwell's supporters. Hoping  against hope, they have been deluding  themselves with the idea that he would  be endorsed by the Liberals of the province. When those do not oppose him  ignore him.  The growing weakness of Mr. Bodwell,  however, will not excuse the government from strengthening their policy  and their administration, and if they  wish to retain public confidence, the  premier must infuse new blood into his  cabinet. This is demanded by his supporters in the house and country alike.  They feel that a vigorous and progressive policy is necessary to the province  in the present juncture, and with able  advisers at his back, the people realize  that no man is more able to give it than  James Dunsmuir.  THE EMPRESS IS RADICAL  Exercising Her Censorship.  PEKIN, January 9.���-The dowager  empress of China asserted her complete  supremacy today by giving an audience  in the most sacred hall in the forbidden city. The rules of the dynasty forbid women to enter this hall and the  dowager empress has never before violated its sanctity. The emperor will receive the foreign diplomats in this hall.  Officials believe the dowager empress to  be paving the way to be, present on this  occasion in order to prevent any communication between diplomats and tlie  emperor except under her censorship.  The dowager empress is preparing to  send letters to the ministers of the foreign powers here, expressing her desire  for the maintenance of friendly relations and her unwillingness to receive  advice in audience.  Progressive Chinese officials explain  that the dowager empress disapproved  of Boxerism, that her wishes in this  matter were overruled and her edicts  gar.bled. It is possible that general  Tung Fuh Siang, the notorious anti-  foreigner, whose decapitation has been  ordered by the dowager empress in an  edict, has already been beheaded.  The Tartar general in Kan Su province, who was ordered to carry out this  sentence, has telegraphed that he has  imprisoned Tung Fuh Siang in his  yamen and asks for instructions. To  this message the dowager empress replied, ordering the Tartar general to  carry out her edict.  =An^Advocate of-Protection.-  MONTREAL January 9.���The Star's  London cable says: "Sir Robert Giffen,  ex-president of the statistical society,  who has long been associated with the  Gladstonian school of finance, significantly suggests in the Times today  that income tax be reduced from 14d  to lOd in pound, which would mean a  loss of ��10,000,000 to the national exchequer, and that ��20,000,000 be raised  by indirect taxation, including a tax of  one shilling per quarter on wheat and  one shilling per load on lumber."  The Westminster Gazette, the pillar  of free trade, says: "If we could be  certain that this is not the thin edge of  the protectionist wedge we might agree."  The St. James Gazette (Tory and protectionist), says: "A grain tax, touching the central article of our commercial creed would raise opposition, which  advantage thus gained would not make  it worth while to provoke." The chancellor of the exchequer will, it adds,  "regard sir Robert Giffen's agitation as  an indication of the reserve to be drawn  upon in case of necessity in addition to,  instead of substitution for, present  sources of revenue.  Greenwood Local News.  GREENWOOD, January 9.���[SpeciU  to The Tribune.]���On Tuesday night  deputy grand master, T. M. Gully, installed the officers of the Boundary  Lodge of Oddfellows, Greenwood. Between seventy and eighty brethren were  present. The installation was follow3d  by a banquet and social gath3ring.  The directors of the Boundary Creek  Mining and Milling Company, owning  a group of fourteen mineral claims :"n  close proximity to Greenwood, adopted  resolutions authorizing the London and  Canada syndicate to accept the offer of  an English comapny to take over the  local company's, assets, on condition  that the former provide a minimum capital of $100,000, to discharge the latter's  liabilities and leave a large oalanco for  development work, the local company  to receive 50,000 paid up, 10 shilling  shares. A special meeting of the shareholders is called for the 25th instant to  confirm the directors action.  Superintendent Downie of Nelson is  in the city tonight.  LIQUOR QUESTION BOTHERS  The Premier of Manitoba.  WINNIPEG, January 9.���Following  the interview which appeared in this  morning's Telegram, the provincial government's organ, with premier Roblin,  regarding a referendum to the people on  prohibition. Mr. Roblin was seen by a  Telegram reporter yesterday, with reference to the various interviews that  have appeared in the press relating to  his announcement on the Liquor Act  question. He said that his statement  was evidently differently understood  and differently interpreted by nearly  every one. Some had apparently understood the meaning he had intended 1,o  convey. Mr. Roblin was asked if he  had seen the interview with Mr. Banting in the morning Telegram, and if he  Svould say whether Mr. Banting was correct in his interpretation.  "Yes," said Mr. Roblin, "I have read  Mr. Banting's interview, and he is substantially correct."  "But Mr. Banting believes ihat a referendum should and will be held."  "That is what the government think,  also, and in my interview, on Monday,  I plainly led up to that conclusion, and  I was so understood by many. Mr.  Banting gives many sound reasons for  this step." -���'''....'  . Mr. Roblin's attention was called to  his reference on Monday to the importance of action by Ontario.  "I believe what I said of the importance of co-operation, and the action  Ontario takes will have a great effect in  facilitating, or otherwise, the operation  of the act in Manitoba. If Ontario is  going to take action, it would be in the  best interests of all concerned for this  to be known before anything is done in  Manitoba."  "But y'/J will not wait longer than  this session to find out what Ontario  intends to do."  "Certainly not," answered Mr. Rod-  lin. "The enforcement of the act will  be submitted to the will of the people  as soon as possible after the close of the  session.- Provision will be made for  this at the coming session of the legislature, but as I said before the government will not alter the act in any way."  Piatt Drops His Libel Suit  NEW YORK, January 9.���Friends of  "United^State^^  announce that he has reconsidered and  abandoned his determination to sue  McClure's Magazine and William Allen  White for libel. Piatt took exception  to an article about himself written by  White and published in last month's  issue of McClure's. In a character study  of the New York boss covering a dozen  pages, Mr. White, a hard hitter in his  most amiable moods, handled Piatt with  the very thinnest gloves. Apparently  stung this time beyond endurance, thn  hitherto imperturbable Piatt at once  cried out he had been grossly libeled  and would seek redress in court. That  was several weeks ago. It appears that  Piatt has since been consulting friends  here and in Pennsylvania, and it is hinted that largely upon the advice of the  latter has he been induced to suspend  legal hostilities.  Russians Blame the Consul.  ST. PETERSBURG, January 9. ���-  Charlemagne Tower, United States ambassador to Russia, discussed the fights  at New Chwang between sailors belonging to the United States gunboat Vicksburg and Russian soldiers at length today with count Lamsdorff, the Russian  foreign minister. After this conference,  Mr. Power said that no open questions  remained in connection with this matter. Opinion here inclines to put the  responsibility for all the trouble at New  Chwang on the failure of the American  consul there to try and punish the American sailors when the first instance of  disorder occurred and is inclined to  find fault with the administrators of  New Chwang.  Found Guilty of Murder.  NEW YORK, January 9. ��� Henry  Schaub, who last June killed his wife  and infant daughter at Newark, New  Jersey, was today found guilty of murder in the first degree. Schaub was  crazed by drink when no murdered his  wife and child.  the derelict had been seen off there yesterday and Indians at San Juan told of  going out to it. They said it was seemingly a threo masted schooner.  Brigantine Blakely, bound ��� from Victoria to Cocos island, had a narrow escape from going ashore at San jaun yesterday. Her anchors dragged and she  drifted near the rocks.  Captain Smith, flrst oflicer and twenty  survivors of the steamer Bristol, lost  on a reef between Grey and Green islands, arrived here today.  ANOTHER STOBY  Wants Spreckels to Back Him.  SAN FRANCISCO, January 9.���Adolph  Spreckles, son of the California sugar king,  has received a telegram from Fitzsimmons  which indicates that the Cornishman is  ready to enter the ring again and fight Jeffries, if. suitable arrangements can be  made. In the telegram Fitzsimmons asked  the millionaire -if he would back him for  $25,000 against the champion, the winner to  tako the fighters entire share of the gate  receipts.   Local Option Carried.  OAK WOOD, Ontario, January 9.���The  township of Mariposa, by a majority ol*  252, has sustained tho Local Option prohibition by-law.  PANAMA DEAL IS REJECTED  WALLA WALLA OFFICERS  AT  FAULT-  CAPTAIN BENOIST OP THE MAX  GIVES HIS STATEMENT OF  THE COLLISION.  French Company Out of It.  WASHINGTON, January 9. ��� The  Hepburn Nicaraguan Canal Bill passed  the house this afternoon by a practically  unanimous vote, only two members out  of 310 voting against it. The opposition, in committing the government to  the Nicaraguan route, attempted to secure amendments to lodge with the  president the discretionary power to  purchase and complete the Panama  canal if it could be purchased for $10,-  0000,000. The test came on the first vote  when the advocates of an alternative  route polled 102 against 170 votes. At  each succeeding vote their strength  dwindled until Mr, Cannon of Illinois,  under whose leadership the fight was  made, was unable to get the ayes and  nays on a motion to recommit. All  other amendments failed and the bill  passed exactly as it came from committee. None of the votes, except that  on the final passage of the bill, was a  record vote. _  The debate, which preceded the taking of the final vote, was made memorable by a clash between Mr. Hepburn,  the author of the bill and Mr. Cannon,  chairman of the appropriations com-  mitteer On 'several previous ���occasions������  they have measured swords over canal  legislation. Two ��� years ago a similar  bill was passed by a vote of 224 to 36.  The bill as passed today, authorized the  president to secure from the states of  Costa Rica and'Nicaragua on behalf of  the United States, control of such a portion of the territory belonging to said  states as may be desiraDle and necessary on which to excavate, construct,  and protect a canal suitable to the  wants of modern navigation, and appropriates such a sum of money as may  \)i necessary to secure the control of  said   territory.  Section two authorizes the president,  after securing control of the needed territory, to direct the secretary of war to  construct such canal from the Caribbean sea at a point near Grey town, in  Nicaragua, by way of lake Nicaragua,  to a point on the Pacific ocean near  Brito and also to construct proper harbors at the termini of said canal and to  make necessary provision for the defence of the canal and narbors.  Section three and four authorize the  SAN FRANCISCO, January 9.-The official investigation into the cause of the  collision between the steamer Walla Walla  and tho French bark Max last Thursday  was commenced today before the local inspectors. Captain Benolst of the Max submitted a written statement to the effect  that at the lime of the accident his mate  was on the watch. The lookout reported  the lights of a steamer on the starboard  bow. The mate thereupon notified him and  he went upon deck and seeing the light of  the steamer, he went into his cabin to  dress. "While so engaged the collision occurred. The lights of his room were burning brightly. Immediately after the steam- '  er was struck he rushed on deck. As the  forepart of his ship was filling rapidly he  was to busy, in giving orders for the closing of the compartments to pay any attention to the other vessel. He ordered a  torchlight, however, to let the steamer  know where he was, but not seeing anything of the latter fifteen minutes after the  accident he concluded that she had proceeded.  Shipping Fatalities.  VICTORIA, January 9.���The steamer  Queen City from the west coast, reports  that a large schooner is afloat off the  Vancouver island coast upside down.  The missionary at Cloose reported that  president lonTake^suchn-un'eys-as^may  be necessary and to employ such persons  in constructing the canal as may to him  seem wise, and directs that in the construction of the canal the river San  Juan and lake Nicaragua shall be used  as far as they are available.  Section five authorizes the president  to guarantee to the governments of  Costa Rica and Nicaragua the uso of  the canal and harbors upon terms to bo  agreed upon by all vessels of said states  and by citizens thereof.  The last section makes a nrnsent appropriation of ?10,000,000 to carry on  this work and authorizes the secretary  of. war to enter into proper contracts  for material and work as may be deemed necessary therefor, such work and  material to be paid for as appropriations may be made from time to time.  The section fixes the aggregate cost at  $1 SO,000,000 to bo drawn from the treasury on warrants of the president.  To Revise Catholic Creeds  ROME, January 9.���The membership of  the Papal Commission, on modern quos-  tions, concerning the-Holy Writ, is ofli-  cially announced. It consists of cardinal  Parrochi, vice chancellor of the Holy  Roman church; cardinals Sagna, prefect  of tbe Vatican archives, and vivesy 1'uto,  as assessors.

LONDON, January 9.���Commenting on  the boom in lawn tennis, which is attributed to the presence of Davis and Ward,  the Americnn players, in the championship  games of 1001. and to their prospective return in Y.W1 with other Americans of their  own caliber, the Pall Mall Gazette says:  "The American prospects of winning the  championship are unpleasantly hopeful,  from the British point of view."  Buying German Warships  BERLIN, January 9.���The Klelnes Journal, .which sometimes prints exclusive  news, publishes the following dispatch today from Hamburg: "Nicaragua is making  extensive war preparations. She has purchased German warships and has bought  cannon, rifles, and ammunition, amounting  in value to 1,500,000 marks, through the  Nicaraguan minister at Berlin, senor  Roeha, a certain Hamburg bank loaning  the money for the purchases.

Kloss, pastor of the First Congregational  church at Webster Grove, has caused a  sensation by suggesting in an Interview  that women should propose marriage.  There are nearly 300 members of the congregation, and last year there were only  about a dozen marriages among the members. Dr. Kloss is disposed to blame the  woman. He says they are too timid and  that there is no reason why they should  not do the proposing themselves. "The idea  seems to always have been that women are  dependent on the men," Dr. Kloss says.  "There is no reason why this opinion  should not be removed. Let them become  men's economic equals, and then they can  do the proposing themselves, instead ot  waiting for the men to come along and ask  them to become their wives. Right now  women do not usually let men propose to  them until they are ready, and there is no  reason why they should not have and exer-  icisenlie=same-right--of-proposing-as_men."=  Will Build Large Refinery.  PITTSBURG, January 9.���The Guffey Petroleum Company, an associate concern of  tho J. "M. Guffey Petroleum Company, has  let contracts for the erection of an additional refinery at Port Arthur, Texas, lt  will have a capacity of 10,000 barrels of  crude oil per day. A refinery has just been  finished with a capacity of 5000 barrels a  dav. The completed plant will be among-  the largest in the country. It adjoins the  docks ot the shipping company. No efforts  will be made to barrel the refined product,  but It will be shipped In tank steamers.  The company Intends to utilize the valuable bv-products as soon as the refinery is  erected. Texas oil does not yield a large  percentage r.f the refined product, and tho  sediment forms a large portion of the fluid.  This will be used for fuel purposes nnd  can be sold at a far lower price than tlio  crude oil, which Is now being burned for  fuel.  Twenty-six Kecruits Discharged.

Men who are honestly in favor  of municipal ownership of public utilities would not seek to entangle the city  in a partnership with a corporation to  carry on the business of electric lighting  on a percentage basis.   They would not  do it at a lime when the corporation to  be taken into partnership was doing its  utmost  to  prevent   the   city   acquiring  rights and privilege-cmfwyp ioa o[ptrtg  rights and property interests that would  place it in an independent position. Vet  this is exactly what Frank Fletcher has  done.   Elected mayor pledged to do hi.  utmost to  put the  public  utilities  belonging to the city so that they wouid  be independent of  the  West Kootenay  Power & Light Company, he, before his  term of ollice had expired, attempted to  foist upon the people art agreement with  the West Kootenay Power &. Light Company that was so manifestly unfair to  the" city that it was repudiated by the  people.     Now   his   newspapsr   mouthpiece says that it is absurd to charge  him (Fletcher) with being anything else  than a believer in the soundness of the  principles   of   municipal   ownership   of  public utilities.    The people of Nelson  care little for what Mr. Fletcher says  he believes in; but they do care a whole  lot about what iie practices.   They want  as mayor a man who will do what he  says he will do.  '. One of the Fletcher "push,*' who has  an office near the corner of Baker and  Ward streets, remarked yesterday:  "That letter of captain McMorris's, published in The Tribune this morning, has  hit our crowd hard. We never thought  ho could write."  "Bob" Winerals is slated for city  clerk if the Fletcher crowd win the election. He was Nelson's first chief of  police.  It is admitted the Fletcher ticket is  weak as compared with that of their  opponents. Captain , McMorris is admitted to be as able a man as Haroid  Selous, and "Tom" Scanlan is more  than a match for John Hamilton or  John Elliot In the East ward, "Dick"  Drew and "Johnnie" Irving and "Chris"  Morrison easily hold the "age" over  John Paterson and W. G. Oillett and  "Blake" Wilson.  In the East ward, the Fletcher men  say they have no show of electing any  of their candidates, but they hope to be  able=-to-trade-Paterson= and=Gillett-l"or-  votes for Wilson. In the West ward  they are "plumping" for Seljus, having  no confidence in Hamilton or Elliot.  A Front street wholesaler remarkcl:  "No; I won't vote for you, or anyone  else who is supported by Houston or  The Tribune."  ��� It seems the Fletch-r crowd are not  satisfied to allow the school trustees to  be elected by acclamation. It was understood that Dr. Hall and Dr. Arthur  and Mr. Swannell would servo as trustees, and that two other citizens could  be induced to offer themselves as sacrifices for the common good. This arrangement was not at all satisfactory to  the Fletcher "push." They do not wait  anyone on the schcol board who is not  a supporter of candidate Fletcher. This  is a narrow view to take of a question  that should not be mixed up in ward  Coal Mines Regulations.  The amendments to the Coal  Mines  Regulation Act, passed at the last session of tlie legislature, are to come into  force on the 15th instant. These amendments were enacted to provide additional  protection to miners and others working in coal mines, and they provide that  no person shall  be employed as a coal  miner, fire boss, over-man, or shot lighter in any coal mine who is not in possession of a certificate of competency,  granted by a board of five examiners,  which board shall be composed (at each  mine) of the following:    One appointed  by    the    lieut.enant-governor-in-council,  two appointed by the owner or manager  of the mine, and. two coal  miners, actually working in  the mine who shall  have had at least three years' experience  as working miners,   and   be elected as  members of the board by the miners actually working in the mine.    It is further provided that in order to obtain a  certificate the applicant must satisfy the  examiners that he is sufficiently conversant with   the   English   language, and  with the acts relating   to coal   mining  and  the rules and  regulations,  to render his employment   safe.    If   a   shot  lighter, fire-boss or overman that he has  a good knowledge of the character and  use of explosives and is fully competent  to perform his duties.    Before subjecting the men to the examination necessary lo the obtaining of certificates  it  was deemed advisable to hold a conference   of mining   inspectors   and   mine  managers to settle the form of rules and  regulations governing ��xamination,  for  although  a majority of the  applicants  would be found able to undergo written  examinations,   some   miners,   in   every  other way capable, are unable to write  the answers to the questions and must  therefore be examined orally.    For the  purpose of settling these matters definitely invitations lo a conference were  sent out by the government to the coal  mine inspectors and  managers,  and  in  response a number of these gentlemen  arrived in Victoria yesterday arid met  premier Dunsmuir. Hon. D. M. Eberts,  acting minister of mines, and W. T.  Robertson, provincial mineralogist.  Among the inspectors and managers  present Avere: Thomas Morgan, Nanaimo, inspector; F. D. Little, superintendent Wellington Colliery Company;  Thomas Stockatt, general manager of  the Crow's Nest Coal Company, Fernie,  and Thomas Russell, manager New Vancouver Coal Company, Nanaimo. The  mining men found that the rules and  regulations drafted by the government  fairly covered the ground und beyond a  few very trifling suggestions no changes  were deemed necessary. As one of them  said last night, the government and the  officials of the department of mines had  evidently worked with a desire to carry  out the spirit as well as the form of the  law, and had succeeded admirably. Yesterday's conference will result in the  immediate distribution of copies of the  rules and regulations to the various coal  mines, and the appointment of the nao-  essary boards of examiners to whom  the details of the examinations will l>e  entrusted.  The Trust Not Dead.  When president Schwab of the Steel  "Consolidation" declarer! that the trust  HP longer exists as a business proposition, and that   it (lied   because   it ,,was  founded   upon   evil   principles,  among  them  being the throttling of competition, he must have overlooked the Standard Oil Company.   That benevolent consolidation or capital is   working  right  along on the original line of the trust,  restricting production, controlling prices  and throttling competition wherever it  can.    In the village of Chardon, Ohio,  Mr. Rockefeller's hundred-million-dollar  corporation is engaged in a strenuous  effort to ruin a poor oil peddler, who refuses to buy his stock from Mr. Rockefeller.   The peddler pays a license fee  and has a legal as well as a moral right  to earn his living   by   selling   oil, Mr.  Rockefeller denies the right of anyone  to earn a living by selling other than  Standard oil, and besides, Mr. Rockefeller needs the money paid by the citizens  of Chardon village for kerosene. Therefore the Standard  Oil Company orders  its Chardon agent to throttle competition and drive peddler Hossler out of  business if it takes   eight   years   arid  costs more than all the oil he sells ?s  worth.   In the course of the fight it develops that the Standard Oil Trust has  no legal right to do business in Chardo'i,  and Is violating the   law   by   peddling  without a license, and its agent is arrested.    These are the tactics and  the  ways of the trust���the methods which  have made Standard Oil detested wherever its name is known.    Much of the  popular hatred of trusts in the abstract  is due to the nefarious practices of the  Standard Oil Trust, and while that Incorporated appetite   for   other  people's  wealth exists and thrives by throttling  competition, Mr.  Schwab   will   fail   to  persuade the people that the trust is a  "dead proposition."���Philadelphia North  American.

IT WILL HIT THE TRUSTS  \    One Effect of the Canal.  ���The"London "Guardian," a noted English  wisekly'- o�� long established reputation,  writes in a recent issue thus: "What will be  the effect of the opening of a trans-Isthmian canal on the commerce of the world  in general and, more especially, on the  .ommorlcial position ot Canada and the  United States? This Is a question worth  ���asking, but not easily answered. That the  eastern states will prolit by a short cut  to the Philippines and the Chinese ports  Is suftlciently obvious, and it would soein  to follow that sooner or later they must obtain the lion's share of the trade with the  Far East. Canada, though her transcontinental railway will lose muuh��of its Importance as a connecting link between \Vesi  ���ind East, will certainly gain something:  the factories of Ontario und the furnaces  ot Sydney���destined manifestly to become a  Plttsburg-by-the-sea���should lind a murket  for their product on the further shores of  the Pacltlc. As yet the cities of the termini  of the Canadian Pacllic railway and the  Iron trails that traverse the breadth of the  'United Slates are afraid'that much of the  trade which they now enjoy and all, or  nearly all, of that which they hoped to gain  in the future, will be lost to the new Cor-  inths of the Isthmus. San Francisco has  already entered a formal protest against  the opening of a direct route to the'Uri.nt,  and, but for the fact that Seattle and Victoria now share between them the lucrative  AJaskan trade which was onoe monopillzed  by the capital of the Pacific .slope, they,  too, would have prophesied evil to themselves. The same fearlessness, long since  proved baseless, caused the construction of  the Suez canal to opposed in this country.  Even if the cities on 'the Coast���a term applied lo the seaboard from Alaska to Mexl-  ��� co by all classes of Pacific adventurers-  lose  something  at  the  outset,   this  direct  -and   immediate   loss   will   be   insignificant  compared with the gain which must eventually   follow   the   shortening   of   the   sea  .journey from  the ivorts on either side of  the Atlantic,  and  the consequent disintegration of tha graat railway monopolies of  the United  States. The American railway  ���corporation���the   retiarius   of   the   trusts���  . has long held the west in a triple woven  net,   and   the   construction   of   the   inter-  ��� ocean    canal���president    Roosevelt's    best  ��� weapon against those trust makers, who  .- tire also landlords���will bring about a vast  ' increase   in   the   prosperity   of   the   fruit  growers of the Pacific states and of the  farmers throughout the American Northwest."  Such  tho confused  and  confusing  rhap-  : sody in which a usually well informed and  . as a rule eminently cautious English weekly Indulges in regard to the supposed gen-  ��� oral benellts to be conferred on Canada and  the United States by  the  opening ot the  ; Nicaragua canal.- In the course of this the  ' "Guardian"  unwittingly  exaggerates alto-  : gether  the" main  position,  whilst ignoring  the significance to this and the neighboring coast and seaboard of the facts of the  : greater nearness of British Columbian and  Washington  state ports  to  central  points  ��� in the Orient than any points to be served  by tho canal, and is also unaware that our  ��� recognition of the vast inherent productivity of this Pacific seaboard and its tributary territory enables us to look with  the utmost complacency, so far as our  future   material   interests   are   concerned,  ��� upon any scheme of trans-Isthmian can-  : alizatlon.  The reference of the sharing between "Vlc-  'toria and  Seattle of the  "lucrative  Alas-  ��� kan trade," meanwhile affords a curious  ' Instance of the half knowledge of the case.  possessed by the "Guardian" writer, as he  " is evidently unaware that the best of the  Northern  trade of Pacific America is not  now   with   Alaska,   but   with   the   Yukon,  ��� as also we of Vancouver share In lt to a  Tstcadily^lncreaslii'g-=exten|t-^vlth_ii__Seat.tJel  : and Victoria. That the construction of the"  Nicaragua canal  will bring about a vasi  ' Increaso   of   the. prosperity   of   the   fruit  ��� growers of the Pacific states and the farm-  ��� ers   of ��� tho  American   Northwest   may   be  ��� furthermore be regarded as we out west  ���call "ponpveock." The Northwestern farm-  ��� cr, who'ls usually already separated from  Ihe seaboard by  long railroad hauls,  will  ��� not   find   his  access   to   his   best   market?  ��� cheapened to any material extent by th'  Nicaragua canal and its competition, and  the   same   remarks   apply   to   the   Pacific  ��� Coast fruit grower. The latter will find  ' his best markets near at hand at home  ���and ln tho Northwest country, rather than  In any distant region to be served hy the  canal when, probably at leaBt ton years  hence, when It begins Its work.���News Ad-  vetlscr. ���   Christmas in the Hospital.  Wo were strangely quiet that Christmas  ' Eve In Ward B, Cape Town hospital two  .years ago.. The young Englishman In  tho  northeast corner who had been grumbling  -ull week at the "beastly nuisance of being  penned up while all the other fellows were  right In "the show," forgot the pain of the  .hole  made  by  tho Mauser bullet  through  the  calf, of  his  leg.   The  old  major,   two  ��� cots away, didn't swear al things in gen-  ��� eral, as had been his wont. The almost convalescent lancer who had battled with en-  steric and won stilled his clamoring for  .something more to eat, and lay quietly  humming some old English love song. The  Boer Held cornet next cot to me retained  his usual impassive manner that savoreu  ���of churlishness, but his face seemed soft-  ���ened by the subdued half lighted room.  It would be two hours before she came,  :and it was now 10 o'clock. It was she  who brought us news from the outsidr  world���to the Boer news from Colenso, to  .us news from the Modder river. It was sh_  who stopped the discussion as we relieved  Ladysmith from our respective cots in  ways unheard of by Buller.  We all knew who she was. A Boer to tht  tips of her delicate fingers that ministered  to us as we lay throbbing in pain or delirious with fever. A Boer of that class that  has given their cause its best blood���Its  best soldiers��� the old mixture of Dutch  ���and French Huguenot.  The minutes crept slowly on with the  slowness of hospital time, the though U  and hearts of most of us had gone out  to the loved ones across the seas.

We knew not how her English lover had  been sent away, for, unreasoning as women  are, she would be true to her race. We  knew little probably of her life In the world  but we knew her as the sweet faced sister who was forebearing in our invalid  petulance and sweetly womanly as she  came und went, soothed and comforted her  country's enemies. And we waited for her  as we had learned to wmc.  It was hearing midnight and not a sound  of tho great city around us. even an echo  of the great war to the north, came to our  minds as the great day of the Christian  came nearer and nearer.  There was the faint rustle of a skirt in  the corridor. Every white face in tha teem  turned, and as the door opened she stood  framed in Its portals for a minute. <���  At that minute the cathedral bell tolled  out the hour of midnight. There was silence, still as death, till the last loud musical note had teen sounded, and as it died  away the sweet voice that Is given to  every colonial In South Africa softly said:  ���.   "I wish everybody a Merry Christmas."  There was a half sob In the softly spokei  words at their seeming mockery in bloodstained ..South African soil, on the natal  -dny of "Him who came to preach "peace  on  earth  and  good will  towards men."

The total amount of ore shipped from tho  Slocan and Slocan City mining divisions  for the year 1900 according to the new Denver Ledge; was, approximately, 35,000 tons.

SAN FRANCISCO, January 9.���Jacob  Miller, a capitalist of Seattle, who was  on the Walla Walla with his wife, lays  the blame unequivocally upon the officers of the steamer. He says that lie  was on the deck a moment after the  crash and then he saw the lights of the  hark burning brightly. The night was  so clear, he declares, that cvea if the  Max had had no lights she could have  been seen 1000 .feet away with the naked  eye. Miller also makes the sensational  charge of drunkness on board the Wal?.a  Walla. J. W. Ettershank, the quartermaster, who was at the wheel of the  Walla Walla when the Max crashed into  her on the port side, saw the bark approaching, but shifts all responsibility  for the disaster to the two officers he  says were on the bridge���second officer  Lupp and third, officer Hughes. "I have  made my statement to the inspectors of  hulls and boilers," said Bttershanks,  "signed my name to it and swore to iv.s  truth. It will surprise everybody, even  the officials of the steamship company.  All sorts of stories have besn published  about the wreck, but they are all wrong.  My statement is right. I was in the  wheelhouse when the bark rammed her  prow into us. "On the bridge were second officer Lupp and third officer  Hughes. Johnson was station man,  Wilson deck watchman. It was a clear  night and we were casting north northwest at good speed. I saw the lights of  the bark and knew that she was approaching us. All of us���Lupp, Hughes,  Johnson and myself���knew that the bark  was coming. I did not receive any  orders, however, until half a minute before the collision. Johnson and the second officer yelled down to me: 'Hard  aport' I worked the wheel for dear life,  but the best I could do did not save us.  The bark pushed her nose into us and  I knew it was the last of the Walla  Walla. "It was a bad ending to a merry  new year on board, and I guess next  time some of us will not celebrate half  so much.   I never drink myself."

Mark Twain was recently chafllng sir  W'eymiss Keld on the vagaries of English  pronunciation. "You spelL a name Beau-  champs and pronounce it Marchbanks,"  he said. "And you do precisely the same  thing," replied sir AVeymlss. "What do you  mean'.'" asked Mark. "Well, you spell your  name  Clemens and pronounce it Twain."  Dr. Varnadoe, a noted professor of Greek,  is very fond of llowers, and, some days  ago, on returning from his college duties,  ho found in his yard a pestiferous calf  belonging to a neighbor. The doctor gave  chase and the calf plunged toward tho  flower pit, and in another Instant crashed  through the glass cover and mixed at  random with the pots and plants below.  When another professor passed a few minutes lates, he said gravely: "I don't understand, Dr. Varnadoe, why you should object so seriously of having a modest cowslip added to your lino collection of plants."  The doctor's frowning face relaxed. "Ah,  Sanborn," he retorted, "you see this was  only a worthless bulrush."

"In that  case," replied the professor, preparing to  resume with tho cmotation, "1 should advise you to get up early some morning before breakfast and learn it."  Very amusing is the story of the latest  Parisian duel. Two, rivals boxed .each  others ears, and a mutual challenge to mortal combat followed. Accompanied by doctors and seconds, the foes, thirsting for  each other's blood, drove out to the Bois  early one very chilly morning. The spot  was chosen. Coats were doffed, swords  measured, the referee said: "Go, gentlemen," and tho fight began. But it soon  dawned on the seconds that the combatants were less determined with cold steel  than they were with the open hand. Both  gallants exhibited an extraordinary circumspection in their play, and after twenty-four resumptions of the battle, neither  had received a scratch. It was already  past 1 in the afternoon, the seconds were  r.hiv-aring and the doctors felt they were  catching their death of cold, and there  was no prospect of either combanant ever  hitting the other. Suddenly one of the keepers of the. Bois emerged from behind a tree,  and exclaimed crossly: "Look here, gentlemen, I have had enough of this. Here I  have been for three hours looking at you  two, and you are no further on with your  fight than you were when you began. Now.  duelling is illegal in this country. I don't  mind winking at a duel for a reasonable  time, but I can't go on allowing the law  to be broken for three hours." Whereat  the foils were put up, and the fight stopped  to the Intense relief of everyone, particularly the combantants.
