 ESABLISHED  1892  WHO WILL IT HIT  MONDAY  MORNING,  JANUARY  20,  1902  WEEKLY EDITION  IMPORTANT QUESTION ON  THE ORDERS  IT WILL DISCLOSE THE COMBINATION FOBMED IN EUROPE  AGAINST THE STATES  NEW YORK, January 18.--Thc London correspondent of the New York Tribune In a special dispatch, dated London  1  a.   m.,   says:    Henry   Norman,  whose  practical   knowledge   of  foreign  affairs and American relations renders  him a most unusual member of the commons, will bring out an important diplomatic secret at Monday's session.   He  will ask the under secretary of foreign  affairs whether at the outbreak of the  war between   the   United   States   and  Spain   if  any  communication  was   received from the Austrian or any other  government relating to a proposal for  a joint collective action by the European states and what was the nature of  the reply made by the British government.   The question was postponed on  Friday,   at  the  special   request of  the  government,   but  unless  all  signs  fail  lord Cranborne will answer it decisively  on Monday and probably agree to lay  the  papers  before  parliament.   It  has  been an open secret in diplomatic circles in London and Washington that a  proposal for collective action was made  by Austria and strongly supported by  one or more European powers, and that  "the  British   government  rendered   the  . United   States   a  most  important  service in blocking the coalition and even  threatening to join fleets with the Americans against it.   Apparantly the British government: now has reasons of its  own  for  bringing to light  the precise  nature and extent of the service actually rendered to the United States in  a critical  emergency.    At any rate, J  have the strongest reason for believing  that Mr. Norman's industry will be rewarded -and  a question of exceptional'  '- interest to both countries will be answered  completely.  The motives of the British government for wishing to have the facts laid  bare at the present moment can only  be conjectured. Posibly a reminder, of  the useful services of England, at the  time0 when Americans had no other  friends among the Europeans, is considered timely.  The trial of Dr. Krause resulted in  the severe sentence of two years' imprisonment, after protracted delay and  numerous changes in the form of proceedings and the invalidation of the  main counts of the indictment on technical grounds!. The prosecuting authorities have not come out well, but have  avoided the original blunder of sending  the prisoners to the Transvaal for military trial.  The house of commons has lost by  death, sir Ellis Ashmead-BartJett, an  eccentric member, never really in touch  with it and never receiving full credit  ^forjiis, courage of .conyjc^^^  bine ability.  I, _L Ford, London correspondent of  the Tribune, says: Lord Roseberry's  Chesterfield speech has not been displaced by th�� king's speech as an event  of potential force in politics. The peace  movement in Holland and Belguim,  whether genuine or illusive, must be  attributed to the sugestion of lord Roseberry that the ministers would be prepared to listen to the earliest proposals  of peace from the Boer leaders in Europe. There Is no evidence that overtures of peace have been made to the  British government, but Messrs. Kruger,  Fischer and Leyds are manifestly anxious to create the impression that they  will discuss the matter if they receive  adequate encouragement. Two opinions are tenable respecting De Kuyper's  journey to Brussells and London and  the conference of the Boer leaders at  The Hague. One points to the conviction of Kruger's colleagues that the  war cannot be maintained much longer  and the time is fast approaching when  the claim of independece must be waived and a large grant for rebuilding the  mines and stocking the farms be substituted for it. The other implies a distrust of the sincerity of all the peace  talk at Brussells and The Hague and  credits the Boer intriguers with a crafty  desire to lengthen the war and bring  reproach upon the government for disregarding lord Roseberry's advice. The  ���Second is more reasonable, but the  ^capture of Botha or D,ewet may bring  about genuine peaee negotiations any  day. ,_  Lord Roseberry'"- speech also produced the direct effect of promoting  both the reunion of the Liberal forces  and Radical counterplots  The amendment to the address, which  Frederick Cawly will move next week,  is open to two interpretations. It may  be a laborious and well balanced attempt to bring the two wings of the  Liberal party together ln a single division of the lobby, or it may be a back  bench intrigue for committing the  Roseberry policy, which will discredit  its followers. Each view is plausible  and a correct conclusion cannot be  drawn until Mr. Crawly's amendment is  voted upon. If a Liberal reunion is in  the air, lord Roseberry has many enemies plotting against him in the dark,  "he truth remains that his Chesterfield speech has been fraught with important consequences.   The atmosphere  has been created both for the reunion of  the Liberal party and for peace negotiations. The king's speech has left the  diplomatic political situation unchanged, whereas the Chesterfield speech still  has promise and potency of momentous  results.  The South African situation has been  cleared by the meeting of parliament  and an important stress of blue books.  The dispatches of lord Kitchener and  lord Milner reveal substantial progress  in the working of railways, the re-open-  ng of the mines, the contraction of the  field of hostile operations and the pacification of the country.  There are also official denials of the  Boer charges of barbarism and inhumanity by soldiers, if the contradiction  of anything so credible be needed, and  detailed information respecting the concentration camps and treatment of  Boer women and children. The cumulative camps and treatment of this  mass of authentic information is, that  a great anti-Boer agitation on the continent can have no raison d'etre when  these store houses of official information  are opened. The only fact which tells  against the management of the concentration camp is the high mortality,  but the explanation ot the medical authorities is that in the circumstances it  could not be anything else, and that  everything has been done to minimize  the suffering and promote health and  comfort of the homeless families.  The latest dispatches from lord Kitchener indicate a steady progress in  clearing the country and a remarkable  increase in the mobility of the British  columns and create a strong impression  that the fighting is nearly over.  The debate on the reply to the address from the throne has opened with  a   long  list   of  amendments   and   will  piobably drag along for a week.    The.  government's   majority   reached   a   low  level on the amendment of the hous-.  ing of the working classes, since the  Tories and the Unionists found it impolitic to oppose it, but the result was  an accident, due to the bad whipping.  The   government  is,   indeed,  in  much  stronger form than its supporters had  expected.    The ministers are  standing  together and an armistice between Mr.  Chamberlaiin  and  sir  Mfichael   Hicks-  Beach has been arranged.   The government has been greatly strengthened by  the resolute attitude toward Germany,  and it has become a patriotic duty for  the solid men of the city to flng garlands in the path of Mr. Chamberlain.  Cynics have charged him with playing  to the galleries in appealing to the anti-  German spirit, always existing in the  English  commercial   classes.    A  more  accurate-view is. that the outbreak of  German criticism at the expense of the  British soldiers and ministers, has-been  bitterly   resented  and   that   both    Mr.  Chamberlain and the government have  commanded popular homage by a display of the old-time Anglo-philistinism.  The    preparations,    meanwhile,    for  prince   Henry's   visit   to   the   United  States are fully recorded by the London  press, with an occasional comment implying that   the   emperor   is   wooing  Uncle Sam with unwonted ardor;    The  more   discreet   moralists   confess   that  the British government has done everything in its power to conciliate American feeling by the substantial concessions of the canal treaty and otherwise,  and that Germany, with her well-known  talent for imitation, is sensibly adopting the same line of action.  The feeling on the stock exchange  at the close of the past week was decidedly happy. Whether or not this  was merely the upward end of the financial see-saw is hard to say; but, unless some unexpectedly discouraging  ^news..arriyes from South Africa, there_is  a good prospect for a continual upward  movement. Money has been easy during the past week and there is every  prospect that th bank rate of discount  will be reduced to 3 1-2 per cent during  the next fortnight. This reduction is  rendered likely in view of the large government loan which is regarded as inevitable in March or April. It is also  probable that there will be a Russian  loan, in Paris, in the spring, and naturally the Bank of England will endeavor  to stregthen the London monetary position as much as possible at that time.  The peace rumors, which were circulated as diligently on the stock exchange as elsewhere, have helped tho  boom, but the latest Boer statements  emanating from the continent, indicate  that these rumors were circulated  largely for the benefit of the stock exchange.  American securities did not share  largely in the recent upward movement,  but Grand Trunks were firmer. South  American generally were dull, with the  exception of Urugay bonds, which responded to the improved political outlook. Spanish fours were weak and  Rio Tints eclipsed in sympathy with the  break in copper.  Everybody appears to expect an immediate resumption of prosperity in  South Africa with the close of the war  an immense gold output. Persons of  conservative, .opinion, however, agree  that any general laying down of arms,  for some time to come, is not likely,  and that the long deferred peace, with  its accompanying prosperity, is likely  to have to wait the slow process of  arbitration.  terview with a representative of the  Associated Press today, denied that he  bad tried to go to England for the opening of parliament Colonel Lynch said  he had not left Paris for the good reason that he appreciated the fact that he  was not allowed to reach his goal, the  house of commons. He had some time  ago contemplated going to the opening  parliament, but, said he, jokingly, "I  could not think that a nation that considers itself one of sportsmen, would  be so unsportsmanlike as to seek to  reach me in cold blood when it might  have had me in warm blood in the  Transvaal." Colonel Lynch added that  his future movements would be governed by the counsels of the Irish party, in  which he has every confidence, and by  the wishes of his constituents.     '" ��� ���  BOUNDARY'S CONTRIBUTION  TWENTY MILLION  REPRESENTS   VALUE    OF  OUR MINERAL OUTPUT  Provincial and Federal Taxes:  GREENWOOD, January 18.���[Special  to The Tribune.]���The following figures  show the cash receipts at the office of  the provincial government agent, Greenwood, during the calendar year 1901.  Prior to last year revenue derived from  liquor licenses was not credited the local  office, but appeared as revenue received  at Victoria, Rossland, or, before the  Boundary was included in the Rossland  riding of West Kootenay, at Vernon.  Even now the figures given below do  not show all the revenue the provincial  government derives from the district  immediately tributary to Greenwood,  since all taxes from real estate and personal estate, timber dues, ore tax, and  other revenues are credited other offices  as part of their revenue receipts. The,  following,, however, shows in part the  revenue the province derives from the  district.

Bob  Campbell, as he was familiarly called,  discovered gold in paying quantities on  Eureka creek in October, and reported  the find to gold commissioner Bowron,  who has officially puMished it to the  world, and Mr. Campbell's statement  has been verified.  Beyond the immediate vicinity of Eureka creek nothing is known of the  country, except that there is a large  mineral belt unexplored in which both  quartz and placers are liable to be tls-  covered. It is claimed that Eureka  creek is good-for one to one and one-  half ounces a day to the man. But I  repeat that it is folly for anyone to  attempt to get in there or do anything  in the way of prospecting before May  or June next."  1900..

Dr. Leyds now denies himself to everybody. It is asserted that  Dr. Kuyper, the Dutch premier, on his  return to The Hague from the London  conference with Mr. Wolmarans, the  Boer delegate, has sent another delegate  to consult with Mr. Kruger and that  another meeting will be held next Monday. In spite of Boer denials, a strong  feeling exists here that some p'eae'e  movement is afoot between Great Britain and the Boer delegates, but that  there is difficulty arriving at any acceptable basis of terms, as Kruger and Dr.  Leyds are reluctant to committ them-  selves.-^It-is-declared^iD.-BoeT-^circles,  here that a number of Englishmen sup-I  posed to be officials of the British government, arrived at The Hague under  assumed names last Saturday and were  entertained at dinner by the British  minister there.  Andrew Lang Scores Kipling  LONDON, January 18.���Andrew Lang  joins the long list of critics of Rudyard  Kipling's poem "The Islanders," with a  scathing denunciation of the author's  personality. Mr. Lang takes the character of "Stalky & Company" generally  supposed to be Kipling 'himself, and  holds him up to derision for his "Un-  athletic brutality."

Pearson of the chair of English literature in the Northwestern university,  which is conducted under Methodist auspices, has thrown a bomb into the ranks  of Methodism in Evanston, the seat of  the university, by giving out for publication a statement or his belief that  bibilcal infallibility is a superstitious  and hurtful tradition and that the biblical stories of Christ bringing the dead  to life, of his walking, on the water  and feeding the multitude with the  loaves and fishes were mere poetic fancies, increditible and untrue. Professor  Pearson declares that the policy of the  Methodists is one of inactivity, obstruction and Jesuitical silence on the part  of leaders of the church. He says that  most of the present church teaching  and that most of the Sunday school  teaching is almost farcial and entirely  inadequate. ,  The Followers of Fashion  LONDON, January 18.���Considerable  flutter was created here by the announcement that king Edward had appeared in a frock coat with deep turned  up velvet cuffs. Hundreds of fashionable ones immediately rushed to their  tailors and ordered similar garments  in spite of their extraordinary novelty.  Consternation now prevails, as it is  learned that what the king wore was a  fiock overcoat on which velvet cuffs  are often worn.  VICTORIA, January 18.���[Special to  The Tfibune.]-YThe bureiu'of mines today issued a bulletin signed by W. F.  Robertson, provincial mlherologist, giving the mineral output pf the province  for the year 1901, as follows:  "This estimate is based upon the actual returns of ;-a- number of the mines,  and for those mines f-onVwhich returns  have not as yet been received, the output is based upon their approximate  known tonnage for 'the last year, together with the assays,of the ores from  the same mines fof the previous year.  You will note that these are not given  as final statistics for the year, which  can only be obtained after all returns  are in and checked very carefully. These  will be included in the annual report of  the department, which cannot be out for  about two months yet; I hand you these  figures now rather than wait for the  ���final statistics, as I believe the prompt  publication of even an approximate official estimate, making so good a showing,  will be of benefit!to the province, and  is generally desired by investors in our  mines.  "I think you will find this estimate  conservative, and very approximate,  quite sufficiently, so to show the progress which has. been made in the mining industry during:the past year. In  calculating the values of the products  the usual course has been followed, and  the average price'for the year in the  New York metal market, has been used  as a basis. For silver, 95 per cent, and  for lead 90 per cent, of such market  price has been taken. Treatment and  other charges have not been deducted.  Roughly speaking, the; increase, made in,  1901 over 1900 is 25 per/ cent on gross'  value of output of the province. This  will be a very agreeable surprise to  many, as the circulation of reports giving a contrary impression has caused a  very despondent view to be taken of the  progress of the mining industry during  1901, which does -not seem to be warranter by the facts. There is an appreciable drop in .the placer gold production,  owing to the sudden melting of the snow  last spring causing freshets, and leaving a shortage of water during the latter part of the season.  "The tonnage of ore mined from the  lode mines in the past year is about  871,832 tons, equal to an increase of 317,-  036 over the year 1900, a little "more than  57 per cent. There has been an increase  in the output of all the metals with the  exception of lead, the low price obtainable in this province for lead ores having discouraged this class of mining except where accompanied with good silver values. The gross value of the copper output has increased 206 per cent  over 1900, while lode gold has increased  36-percent-and=silver-14-per-cent.  MORGAN'S FRESH INVASION  To Facilitate the Panama Deal  PARIS, January 18.���It is explained  that if the sale of the property of the  Panama Canal Company is concluded,  juris-consuls will be appointed to decide whether a ratification by a French  tribunal is required, or whether the  vote of a general meeting will suffice.  But in any case it will be a matter of  form. No obstacle is anticipated on  that score.  "The attached forms shows the estimated production of the various metals  and for the various districts.  "Gold, placer, 43,204 ounces, value  $892,500; gold, lode, 227,696 ounces, value  $4,704,200; silver, 4,685,718, value $2,624,-  002; copper, 30,736,798 pounds, value  $4,951,698; lead, 50,529,260 pounds, value  $1,970,641; coal, (tons of 2240 pounds)  1,529,210, value $4,587,630; coke, (tons of  2240 pounds) 134.760. value $673,800;  other metals, $309,030 value; total value,  $20,713,501.  The value of the output of the several  minerals including coal and apportioned  by districts was as follows:  Cariboo and Quesnelle mining division $450,000; Omineca mining division,  $20,000; Cassiar district, value $320,000;  Kootenay East, tons 26,536, value $2,850,-  289; Kootenay West, value $7,362,189;  Trail Creek mining division, tons 279,-  084, value $3,855,556; Nelson mining  division, tons 103,486, value $1,110,226;  Ainsworth and Slocan divisions, tons  30,267, value $2,240,615; Other parts,  tons 1,229, value $155,792; Lilooet district, tons 3,670, value $56,900; Yale district, value $4,751,458; Grand Forks and  Kettle River district, tons 401,008, value  469,465; other divisions, tons 3,158,  value $55,980; Coast districts 2,339,400,  value $4,902,665.  Miss Stone is Well  CONSTANTINOPLE, January 19.���  Reliable news has been received here to  the effect that Miss Ellen Stone, the  captive American missionary, madame  Tsilka, her companion, and the latter's  baby are well. Negotiations are proceeding which is expected will result  in the early return of the captives. John  G. Leishman, the American minister  here, is now directing the negotiations.  He declines to say anything for publication in connection with the matter,  but he admits that there is ground for  the above report.  Cariboo Placer Discovery  R. H. Campbell, manager of the Miocene Company, Cariboo, in a recent interview said: "Regarding the new  strike on upper Horsefly, the strike was  -made late in October, just before snow  fell,   by   Robert   Campbell   and   party,  I who, by the way, is not in any way related to myself, he having been an old  Another $50,000,000 Trust  NEW YORK, January 18.���From Liverpool comes again the report that J.  Pierpont Morgan has under way a deal  of vast importancte "to the electrical  world involving a combined capital of  $50,000,000, says the London correspondent of the Tribune. The Westing-  house Electric Manufacturing Company,  the Pittsburg and Manchester, and the  General Electric Company, in which Mr.  Morgan is the controlling factor, are,  it is stated, to be amalgamated and to  be operated under a community of interest plan. The companies' branches  in France and Germany will, according  to the report, also pass into the hands  of one central organization.  NEW YORK, January 18.���A representative of J. P. Morgan & Company  denied that Mr. Morgan was organizing  a great steamship company to absorb  the American, Leyland, White Star and  Cunarti* lines. He said: "There is nothing in it. The whole thing is just so  much talk, that is the sum and substance of it all."  The Staats Zeitung today published a  cablegram from ..Berlin saying that the  director-general of the North German  Lloyds and Hamberg American steamship companies would come to the  United States together in February.  King .Edward at Perm House  LONDON; January 18. ��� King Edward's  visit to earl Howe at Pennhouse, Amer-  sham, is proving a brilliant social' and  sporting event.

The discovery was made on Blood creek, a mountainous country.  Corelli Caps the Climax  LONDON, January 18.���Marie Corelli in a  letter to a paper caps the climax on tho  anti-German feeling existing In England.  This authoress declares passionately  against the similarity of the British army  uniforms with those of Germany. Mario  Corelli adds that It Is scarcely necessary  to allude to the widespread Indignation at  the color and design of the new postage  stamps which are so essentially German  in appearance.   Another Bailwaw Smashup  DES MOINES, Iowa, January IS.���The  boiler of a Rock Island passenger locomotive exploded near Victoria, Iowa, today.

The scene of the tragedy was at a dance six miles south of here  in the heart of the mining region.  Yesterday was payday at the mines and  as usual the monthly dance was given,  the colored people coming for miles around  and even many whites dropping in to. witness the festivities. About midnight the:  Williams woman entered the hall, evident-.  ly under the influence of liquor. Proceeding to the center of the room she ordered  the musicians to play some rag-time music  and play it quickly. When her demand wa.s  not obeyed she whipped out a revolver  and began firing. Slaughter and Johnson  were almost instantly killed.' Calloway wa.s  fin onlooker at the dance and one of the  bullets, intended for a musician, penetrated his back. Physicians pronounced hi.s  wound fatal. The murderess escaped lynching only by the timely arrival of the oilicers, who succeeded in getting her away  and lodging her in jail at this place.

Sir Ashmead-Bartlett Dead  LONDON, January IS.���Sir Ellis Ashmead-Bartlett died this morning, as the result of an operation for appendicitis.  Tho first meeting of the newly elected  school board was held on Saturday evening at the office of Dr. Arthur. AU the  members were present, and on the motion  of F. W. Swannell, seconded by A. L. McKillop, Dr. Hall was elected chairman of  the board for the ensuing year Dr. Arthur,  who has been secretary of the board during the past year, was re-elected to that  position, and Messrs. Swannell and McKillop were elected as the finance committee.  The chief matter dealt with at the Initial  meeting was the order of the health officer,  who requested that all children in attendance at the public school'not already vaccinated be required to comply with the  order Immediately, and that those not vaccinated by Monday be dismissed. As it was  found that the supply of vaccine had only  arrived- that evening if was impossible to  comply with the demand. After considerable, duscussion the secretary was authorized to interview the mayor, requesting the  city to, vaccinate,free those children whose  parents had not complied with the regulations.  ��� Another matter discussed, and ���: upon  which there has been considerable agitation on the part-of the parents, was-tho  suggested changing of the dinner recess  from an hour to an hour and a half. This  is a matter which the council of public  Instruction at Victoria alone has the power  to deal with, and the secretary was Instructed to write suggesting the desirability, of the change.  : Some time was spent in-discussing tho  estimate of expenditure for the year, which. "  has to bo presented to the city council at  -its meeting today, as under the new arrangement the salaries" and the public  school accounts will be paid by the city,  treasurer. ._ ,: . .... f  One of the reforms which will be adopted  by the new school board will'be to increase  the salaries of the teaching staff, which  hitherto have been regulated by'the department of education at Victoria and. havo  been " inadequate to the cost of living In  comparison to the salaries prevailing elsewhere. It was decided that the checks for  salaries will be issued the first Tuesday of  each month. The regular meetings of the  school board will be.held on the second and  fourth Friday^of each month"at the.ofiice ���  of Dr. Arthur. .  The existing arrangement will increase  the labors of the school trustees, as they  ..'will now havo all the w.ork connected with  tho school management under their own  . jurisdiction. All salaries will be paid by the  city, except the $300 grant by-the department of education for high school purpose,  and a per capita of $15 for every child making the required attendance based on the  average of the six months preceding the-  1st of January, and every day that a child  is absent from the public school, less, than  the total required by the department of  education to become entitled to-the-payment of the grant, will'mean a reduction of  eight cents per day, hence the Importance  ot avoiding the closing of the school and  the reason for the board ��� urging the vaccination question upon the attention of the "  city authorities.  The total amount of income derived from  the department of .educational purposes,  based on the latest estimates of the per  capita grant, will be $5000.  All salaries are fixed by the school board,  but all sums required for additional accommodation ln the matter of school buildings  or repairs to same will be at the option of  the council, pending an appeal to the ratepayers.  It is the aim of the new board to Increase  the educational facilities of Nelson to tho  highest standard and without being extravagant to procure the best teaching talent available, to the end that Nelson may  =bec6me"the"'cducationarcenterIofJthciKoot-���  enays. . v  Former Governor Sent to Prison  LONDON, Jan.

The approaching convention of the,  Liberals   of the   province,   which   has  been taken in hand by the members of  the provincial executive, gives promise:  of  being the most  important political'  gathering in the history of British Col-'  umbia,  and  one  which  may  leave  its;  impress upon  the politics of the province. First and foremost, it is expected-  that a stand will be made by the Lib-'  erals upon the question of party lines!  in provincial politics.    All that is necessary  to   secure  an   outspoken   pronouncement upon this question, and one;  committing   the   Liberal   organization  irrevocably   to   the   adoption   of  party  _-Jincs,._=is-1a--fair--representation-;Of���the  mining and interipr sections of the pro-1  vince in the convention.   The men who!  control   of  the   Liberal machine on the!  Coast are aware of this, and the sus  picion has taken hold in many quarters!  that an effort will be made by them to  muzzle the convention upon this issue,  at  least  until after  the  Victoria  bye-  election has been pulled off.   Their rea-;  son for this is manifest.   The machine  Liberals are behind the candidature of  10.   V.  Bodwell, the recognized head of!  the Vancouver, Victoria & Eastern rail-;  way forces iu the legislature.   This fac-j  tion   ir.  made  up   largely  of Conserva-)  fives  who  bolted  on  the railway issuej  Inst session.    There are   the   elements;  here for a very lively convention, but!  tho ginger has yet to be added.    This  will   he   furnished   by   Joseph   Martin..  The nod well wing of the Liberal party1  has  always opposed Martin's aspirations,;  and "Joe" has a chance in the coming-  convention to play even with those who;  have crossed him so often.    He knows'  better   than  anyone   else   how   a  pronouncement in favor of the adoption of  party lines would cut the ground from!  under Bodwell's feet, and those who are  intimate   with   him   say   if   there   is   a  way to secure it that Martin will find  the   way     There   will,    therefore,    be  three divisions of the party in the approaching convention if it is at all representative.     These   will    include   the  Martinites     and     the     anti-Martinites,  whose fued is no less bitter now than it  was two years ago, and as a third division, the great body of the Liberals in  the interior, who, if they so will it, can!  take the destiny of their party out of  the hands of the warring factions.    If  they  decide  to  do   this  the   issue  will  probably be forced upon  the selection j  of a  leader for  the province.    At the  present time the party is without a rec-  osnized  provincial  leader, and when it  ccdiios to naming one, the interior Liberals,  who  chafe  under the control  of  the machine-men at tho Coast, and who  U4. the same time aro not content to in  crease prestige of Martin, will probably  select one of their own number. Tf  this course is decided upon it is said  the honor will probably fall upon W. A.  Galliher of this city, the representative  in the commons of the important district of Yale-Kootenay-Cariboo. In his  favor it is urged that he has no entanglements with either the turbulent  factions of the party on the Coast, and  that he also stands high in the estimation, of premier Laurier and his ministers.  The statement issued by the provincial mineralogist, giving the mineral  output of British Columbia for the past  year, is very encouraging. It places  the value of the output of the mines of  the province for the year 1901 at $20,-  713,501, showing an increase of 25 per  cent over the previous year. Those who  were led to believe that the mining industry had stagnated during 1901 will  be surprised at the figures, and more so  when they are analyzed, for while the  increase in the gross output of the  mines has increased but 25 per cent during the year under review, the increase  in the output of the lode mines increased 57 per cent over the output of  the previous year. Lead was the only  mineral that did not show a gain in the  aggregate value of its output. The silver- output of the province increased 14  per cent, the lode gold output increased  36 per cent, but the great gain was in  the copper output, consequent upon the'  operation of the big companies at Phoenix and Greenwood, the increase of the  copper output being no less than 206  per cent.

The cyanide works are well placed for  treating the tailings and for getting  benefit of the water power. The buildings are completed and the vats being  erected. It is hoped they will be all  finished during January, and the general  expectation is that they will increase the  profits by at least ��1000 per month after  the first month or two, when tho zinc  boxes will have been thoroughly coated  with solution. Generally, I am convinced that the mine is exceptionally good,  and it certainly is a much better and  bigger one than I had any idea of; and  as soon as the capital expenditure is  finished there is no doubt that the dividends can be considerably increased and  maintained. Very little more capital  expenditure will be required when the  cyanide works are finished; but there is  no doubt in my mind that the recommendation of Mr. Fowler and his assistants, and confirmed by Mr. Wether-  ed, to the effect that not only the cyanide plant but also- the electric plant  should be worked by water power, should  be carried out; and now that the flume,  carrying the water to the cyanide works  has been built, the only cost would be  that of moving the dynamos from the  mill to the cyanide house, and this,'-I  think, should be undertaken at once, i.  e., as soon as the weather permits. I do  not think there is any probability, of the  flume being frozen, but it might be well  to defer shifting the dynamos until the  spring, and untilo the flume has been  tested.

WILL GONT  DURING   THIS   WEEK  Biff Dividends Expected  Allen H. P. Stoneham, one of the directors of the West Australian Goldflelds, a company which is heavily interested in the Ymir mine, has recently  ^forwarded-to^London^a^letter^giving-his  opinion of the Ymir and its possibilities  as a dividend maker. While on his way  to Australia Mr. Stoneham paid a visit  to the Ymir and he makes the prediction that the property will pay dividends  equal to 25 per cent during this year,  and an additional shilling in the pound  during the year 1903. In the letter giving his opinion of the property Mr.  Stoneham says: "I managed to find  time to visit the Ymir mine, am very  glad I did so. I spent two days at the  Ymir, the first day going over tho workings of the mine Itself and also through  the mill, and the second day I visited the  tho cyanide works and the long tunnel,  which hits been driven nearly 1800 feet,  with a view of cutting the reef at a  depth of 1000 feet. The tunnel will  probably have to be driven about 400  feet more before the reef is cut; and as  the reef has been proved to a depth of  about 350 feet from the proposed point  of intersection, and is both wide and  rich at that depth, there is every reason  to believe that the reef will be met with  in the tunnel.  The lowest workings in tho shaft are  about 620 feet from the top of the shaft,  but as the shaft opens on the hill side,  and the reef outcrops some 50 feet, above  the shaft, the reef has really been proven  some 770 feet from the surface. The so-  called 1000-foot level, where the tunnel  will intersect the reef, is really 1150 feet  from the outcrop. Almost all the ore  hitherto taken from the mine has been  taken���  (a) From above the top of the shaft  and below the outcrop;  (b) From the shaft down to the 300-  foot level;  (c) A very little from the 400-foot  level;  but neither of these levels is anythjng  like exhausted yet, and indeed can hardly  be said to have been touched; for there  is an immense quantity of ore left in  them, and the reef in the face at each  end is somewhat above 30 feet wide. In  fact, it. might quite truthfully be said  that the mine is hardly touched yet, and  there is enough ore provided to keep the  present stamp mill supplied for several  years to come; and when the tunnel has  opened up the reef at the so-called 1000  feet it will, beyond a doubt, be necessary  to double the present mill. The mill is  about one mile by road from the mine  and the cyanide works half a mile below  Last Year was a Good One  As an indication of trade iri any country the earnings of the railroads are  supposed to be a good barometer. What  the two great Canadian railroads, the  Canadian Pacific and the Grand Trunk,  have earned during the past year,  therefore, might be expected to show  to some degree the expansion of trade  throughout the Dominion. Both roads  can boast of large increases in gross  earnings, the Canadian Pacific even  more than the Grand Trunk, but it has  been a prosperous year for both roads.  The financial year of the two railroads  ends on June 30, but for purposes of  comparison the ordinary year may be  taken. From the figures given out each  week as official by the railroads, the  gross earnings of the Grand Trunk in  1900 were ?27,55G,376, and in 1901 they  were $28,993,687, an increase of $1,437,-  311. In the same periods the Canadian  Pacific showed gross earnings of $29,-  944,000 "for l-6ff^r$-C053;0-0"W"I90l7  an increase of $4,109,000. The net earnings of the Grand Trunk are not available, but in the case of the Canadian  Pacific they are for the eleven months  of last year and for the twelve months  of 1900. During 1900 the net earnings  of the road were $11,857,585, and  the eleven months of 1901 they  $12,151,893, so that, leaving  month of December  to  to  to  to  to  9\  Special Low Prices on all  Dress Goods, Silks, Underwear, Ready-to-Wear Suits,  Skirts, etc.  A few Silk Blouses at cut  prices.

Just where the increases of both  roads comes from it. is rather difficult  to say. The ordinary annual reports of  the two roads do not show where the  revenue-producing territories arc. The  Grand Trunk has a rich territory in  Ontario, but it also docs a very large  through business from the western  States, at low rates, it is true, but  still revenue-producing, the railway  company says. The query, therefore, in  regard to the Grand Trunk is, does it  derive its paying revenue from Canada  or from the traffic that it secures from  its American territory?  There is a rather different condition  of  altars   to   be   considered   in   dealing  with the earning power of the Canadian  Pacific Railway, as its earnings are supposed  to  typify  the  prosperity  of  the  country.   The Canadian Pacific earnings  come to a very considerable extent from  business in Canadian territory. It would  look  as  if  the  increase  the  past  year  in earnings was due altogether to the  extraordinary crop   in   the   northwest.  The net earnings of the road  in  1900  were $282,579 less than in 1899, due to  the partial  failure in that year of the  western crop.    This past year the west  has come to the rescue of the company,  for there were resources of revenue in  Ontario  that   under   ordinary   circumstances were to   bo   relied   upon,   but  which failed the company. Among these  may be mentioned the partial failure of  the egg trade, both to the old country  and to the Pacific coast, and also the  almost entire failure of the apple crop,  both of which cut off a most lucrative  source of -revenue.    It is  to  the west,  then, that the Canadian Pacific appears  to be  indebted for its increase of revenue, despite a possible loss in Ontario.  In   connection   with   the  earnings   of  the  two   companies,   the  Grand   Trunk  and Canadian Pacific railway, it. is interesting to note that the former today  or.orates  directly   4179   miles,  and   the  latter 7156 miles. 1  Six of the World's Great Men  A fortune amassed by the manufacture  of dynamite and other death dealing agents  of warfare is now being devoted to tho  apothosis of iieace.  On December 10th, the fifth anniversary  of the death of Nobel, the Swedish inventor and philanthropist, intellectual Europe^  met in Stockholm to award the generous  bequests Alfred Nobel left those who, within the past five years, have achieved the  most for the advancement of the arts and  sciences, and for the amelioration of the  horrors of warfare.  To assure an impartial decision the deceased benefactor had made a wise provision. In his will he delegated the right to  make awards to several learned bodies. To  the-Swedish Academy of-Medicine was  charged' the responsibility of choosing between the candidates for the scientific  awards; judgment of physiology and medicine was left to the Caroline Acadamey of  Medicine; the Academy of Stockholm, an  institution similar to tho French Academy,  was to pass oii literature; and a committee  of five members elected by the senate and  house of tho Swedish parliament were con-  stituded a body to decide which workers in  the holy cause of peace were most entitled  to reward.  Abovo all it was specified that national  prejudice should in no way affect the  awards, that no preference should be exercised in favor of the Scandinavian states,  but-that the worthy men of all nations  should stand equal in the eyes of the  judges.  Tlie results prove how faithfully the commission did their work; the six prizes were  distributed to four countries���France Switzerland, Germany and Holland.  Sully Prudmore of Paris, received tho  ���award for poetic philosophy; Roentgen, the  famous German physician, was awarded  first honors for the discovery of the "X-  Ray;" Van T'Hoff of Amsterdam , for  chemistry; Dr. Hehrlng of Berlin, for discoveries in medicine; and Frederick Passy  of France, and Henri Durant of Geneva for  greatest services in curtailing the sufferings  incidental to warfare.  -=-'i-hese-six=inen_will_divide,iabetw.enn^lhemi  the revenue that has accrued on $10,000,000  within th past live years. The money will  now be invested again and an award made  every year.  Willi tho possible cxcoptlon of Dr. Beh-  ring, all the successful candidates are men  of international fame, and while, of course,  thero were some inevitable disappointments  the general opinion seems to be that each  has come into an honor he has well merited.  Pruilhomin'e is really the French poet  luareate. Though not so well known in the  United States and England as Rostand and  some of the younger dramatic poets, he enjoys an unquestionable supremacy among  his own countrymen.  Besides Prudhomme the French academy  also forwarded the names of Edmond Rosin ml, Vallery Radot and Frederic Mistral;  none of these, wore, however, considered  against the venerable dean or French poesy  who was selected not only because of the  brilliancy or his technique, but because of  the inspiring nobility ot his sentiments.  The justice of the award to Dr. Roentgen will hardly be disputed. No discovery  or the last decade has heen more far reaching in its effect than the "X-Ray." It is  true that other scientists had wrestled wJHh  this problem prior to Roentgen, but to him  goes the glory of having brought it to a  successful finish and of having demonstrated its applicability to everyday surgery.  Jacobus Henricus Van T'Hoff, who carries oft the prize for supremacy in chemical science, is a famous Dutch savant, who  holds chairs at the universities of Berlin  and Rotterdam. So popular is he in his native land that recently his twenty-fifth anniversary as doctor of sciences at the university of Utrecht was celebrated by a  great demonstration in Rotterdam.  Dr. Behrinc of Berlin, is a member of  that noted group of physicians that include  Dr. Koch. Ho was selected by the Stockholm conference because of his discovery  of a vaccine for croup.  The fame of Henri Durant dates from  1R5i). In that year, in the battle of Sol Torino, when under Napoleon TIT. Italy was  finally wrested from Italian control, the  Red Cross Society began its work of mercy.  Durant founded the society and under his  management it has found recognition from  all civilized governments, and is now as  much a part of the military service a.s the  medical corps.  It was fitting that Frederick Passy should  share the peace prize with such a. man.  Passy is the founder of the Peace League  and secretary of the society of the Friends  nf Peace. He has devoted his life to opposing warfare, and has written many papers'  on its barbarity and uselcssnoss. Tn advancing his propaganda he has addressed  every parliament in Europe.  It is significant in planning his rewards  for tho world's benefactors, Alfred Nobel  had thought only for the peaceful arts.  He prepared no la.urels for military brows  Indeed, he emphasized his hatred for the  soldier's calling by remembering the men  of peace, those who work to lessen the  horrors nf war and even abolish it altogether. Tt is significant that the wealth  that Nobel left, came lo him mainly through  his Invention of the most terrible explosive  known tn modern warfare���dynamite.  This discovery was partly the result of  an accident. Tn 18S5 while experimenting  with  nltro-glycerine he caused some  dis- '  carded material to bo dumped on a sand  pile preparatory to its removal later on.  During the night the liquid nitro-glyccrine  leaked through and mixed with the sand;  when Nobel came to examine the mixture  next day lie found that chance had revealed  to him the combination he had vainly been  searching for for twelve years. The result  was dynamite.  But the fortune thus founded on. an agent  of destruction has been put to gentle uses.  In life Nobel aided men in the arts of battle; in death he has become a mute apostle  of the glories of peace.  The Largest Wheel Ever Cast  Tlie largest commercial wheel ever.cast  has just been set up in liie shops of Us  makers, the Robert Pool & Sons Company  of Baltimore, to be tested before it is shipped to its owner, the Calument & Heela  Mining Company of Michigan.  Its height, or diameter, rather, is IS foot,  and with its supports it weighs more than  1,000,000 pounds. It is to be used to carry  away the refuse from stamp mills.  Tho wheel is known as a sand Wheel. Upon' the inner surface of its rim will be arranged G50- buckets, eacli measuring 4 fed.  (i inches by *J feet. As the mighty wheel revolves each bucket will scoop up its capacity of earth and refuse, which it will,  dump in a trough at the top.  ��� The order for the wheel was given in  June, 1000, and work upon it began a month  later. It is expected that in two months  more il will bo ready for shipment. Hence  it will havo taken one and one-half years  to build it.  Tlie shaft of this great moving mass of  steel came from tho Krupp gun factory.  It is S2 inches in diameter and 27 feet long,  with a 2(j inch hole through the center. Its  weight is  12,000 pounds.  Tn building the wheel tlie work was laid  out in twentieths, and when the makers  were ready to put the segments together  thoy found that the work had been so skillfully done that every piece fitted to perfection. Several pieces of machinery had to  be specially invented and made in order  to produce certain portions of the wheel.  So carefully is the work of setting up being done that a magnifying glass is in constant use to determine the accuracy of tho  bolt adjustments, etc. So accurately has tho  wheel been balanced that it can be easily  operated with a small screw and by ono  man.  AVhen in actual use at the mines it will  require the force from a 700 horse power  electric  motor.  ^Ifor-.y-t-1.rs*-Wi 11 bo required_to move the  structural work to its destination.

CAPTURE OF AN  AMAZON  Had Led Troops for Tears  MANILA, January 19.���General Chaffee in the annual report which has just  been received sums up the situation  from the military point of view, saying  that the provinces of Batangas and  Laguna, in southern Luzon, and the  islands of Samara, Mindoro and Cebu,  constitute the disturbed area in which  bodies of the insurgents in force are  to be found.  General Chaffee says the prolongation  of guerilla warefare is due to the physical character of the country and the  nature of the warfare carried on by the  insurgents, who pose as friends and act  as enemies in the same hour, to the humanity displayed by the American  troops, of which the insurgents take  advantage and to the fear of assassination, on the part.of those natives who  are friendly disposed towards the Americans, should they give the latter information concerning the movements or  the whereabouts of the insurgents.  Municipal and provincial governments  are being organized. These governments have not yet received a practical  trial. They constitute the only certian  and reliable method of ascertaining the  progress of the Filipinos toward self-  government.  According to the opinion of the army  officers, the disaster to company "C" of.  the 9th infantry at Balangiga, Samar,  when 4."! men were killed, is attributed  to the great confidence of these men in  a territory which they assumed to be  pacified.  In the same report judge advocate  Groesbeck says the suppression of brigandage will probably be one of the  most trying problems of the future. If  the military arm be left free to "deal  with the marauders, there is no doubt  of their final suppression, but the presence of the civil government complicates the situation considerably. With  the civil and military authorities work  ing in harmony, says judge Groesbach,  no evil results should be anticipated.  A report has been received that a dugout canoe in which eleven men of company "I" of the second nfantry, were  travelling, is missing and probably lost.  It is believed the men have perished or  were captured.  An important capture was made in  Laguna province, Luzon, when eight  men of the 8th infantry captured a woman insurgent named Aquda Kaha-  bagar. She commanded an insurgent  force of 800 men, three hundred of  whom carried rifles, while 500 are armed  with bolos, and for six years past she  has been leading insurgent bands  against the Spaniards and the Americans.  WASHINGTON, January 19.���The  Philippine question will be precipitated  on the senate tomorrow when the committee on the Philippines, which has  had the house Philippine tariff bill  under consideration, expects to report  the measure. The bi.ll, with its comix tte amendments, will be sent to the  printer, and senator Lodge, chairman of  the committee, will give notice of his  intention to call it up on the following  day ad ask for its continued consideration until fully disposed of.  There is a general acquiscence of Republican senators in this programme.  There are other important measures to  be presented at the proper time, by administration senators, but the present  agreement is to pass the Philippine bill  first, as being of the most immediate  importance. A long discussion of the  bill is expected by the Republicans and  promised by  the  Democrats.  Tomorrow senator Prye will report  the ship subsidy bill, but he will not  attempt to secure consideraton for it,  for the present and probably not until  after the Philippine bill shall have been  disposed of.  The report of the committee on the  inter-ocean canals is expected later in  the week, but may be delayed. The consideration of that question in the senate will also wait on the Philippine  bill.  During thr week senator Nelson will  Make renewed efforts to secure the pas  sage o" his; bill for the creation of a  depai tn ent of commerce.

DETROIT, January 19.���Four buildings, each four stories high, located in:  the heart of the wholesale district, of  this city, collapsed tonight without any  apparent cause, and all that'now remains is a small heap of smoldering  ruins. The buildings were a part of  the block bounded by Jefferson avenue  and Shelby and Griswold streets, and;  were occupied by five concerns. Their  stocks are a ...total loss, which is esti-:  mated at $152,000 exclusive of the loss;  on the buildings, which amounts to  $.r.0,000. One building was occupied by:  the Maddocks Glove Company and the;  Imperial Gar- Company. The loss on;  the stock of the glove company is esti-:  mated at $25,000 and the loss to the;  Imperial Gas Company at $15,000. Noj  one seems to know what caused the-  collapse of the buildings. After the:  buildings collapsed the inflammable material caught fire. There was no loss:  of life.  squad of policemen and locked up. .They  gave their names as Frank Williams and  Frank Jines.

After securing the;  money and the cash, drawer they rushed:  down the stairs into Douglas street, where  a policeman gave chase, firing several shots:  after them. A riot call was turned Into the:  police station and a wagon load of officers  rushed to the scene. One of the robbers:  ran out of an alleyway into the arms of;  a policeman and the other was found in a  hall .way. At the station both men admitted their identity and said they had lost  their money in the place and thought their  game was as fair as that of the gambling  house. All of the stolen money was found  on them, the cash box having been emptied  and its contents thrown into the street.

A STEAIGHTPOEVAED PLATF0BM.  ._rr  Engineers Will Not Strike  WASHINGTON, January 19. ���The  great lakes engineers, who are delegates to the national convention of  marine engineers, which will meet here  tomorrow, decided at a conference that  there was no occasion, for a strike on  the great lakes so far as their demands  are concerned. The question arose as  to whether engineers, as members of  the association, would be permitted to  operate vessels owned by the steel trust.  These have signed contracts for the  coming season with the trust at the  association scale and a decision was  reached that there was nothing in the  contracts to prevent the engineers from  carying out their agreement with the  various local associations in the vicinity  of the great lakes who will be notified  after today's decision.

Cigars for Eoyal Smokers  Tho crowned heads of Europe have their  cigars mado expressly for them by th6  largest factory in Havana, according to the  Cigar and Tobacco Journal. King Edward  and emperor William are the sovereigns to  whom money is no objecct in comparison  with a Rood smoke.  The English king favors a long and fat  cigar about eight inches long. The kaiser  prefers a much smaller cigar, one measuring six and three-quarter inches In length  by thirteen-sixteenths of an Inch in diameter.  These cigars are on sale to the general  public. They are made up in lots of 1000,  which is the regulation order received from  tho royal customers of the Cuban factory.  Nevertheless, a few of these prize Havanas  aro kept on hand for sole to travelers as  souvenirs, and in that way many a connoisseur Is able on special occasions to enjoy a royal smoke.  As might bo supposed the cigars are made  from the choicest leaves and by the best  workmen ln the factory. The men who roll  the cigar for king Edward receive 25 cents  for each cigar thoy finish. These cigars are  worth $1 each in Havana, and if offered  for sale in New York, with the duty paid,  each would cost $2.30. It is only a few weeks  ago that the secretary for the king of Kng-  land sent the factory a draft for ��200, with  an order for a thousand cigars.

Second Bed-Bock Discovered-  PORT TOWNSEND, Washington, January IS.���The steamer Dirigo has arrived  from Skagway, bringing fifty passengers,  some of whom are from the Klondike. They  report that much excitement prevails at  Dawson over the striking of a second bedrock on Eldorado creek, thirty feet below  tho first. The gravel ran from $1 to $5 to  the pan. Circle City, once one of the leading camps in the north is now deserted except by storekeepers, all having stampeded  to Good Pasture, creek In the Tanau country, where rich gravel has been discovered.  The White Pass & Yukon railway is blockaded and passengers have to bo transferred  across a big snowslide a mile and a half  wide and 100 feet long, which covers the  track to a depth of eight feet.  Mine Workers in Convention  INDIANAPOLIS, Indiana, January IS.���  Several hundred delegates have already arrived here to attend the 13th annual con-  vntion of the United Mine Workers of America, which opens Monday morning. Fear  is expressed that the convention will be un-  wieldly, as it is expected that there will be  over 1000 delegate's," making it the largest  convention ever held by 'organized labor.  President Mitchell will preside. Ben Tillett,  the famous English labor leader, will arrive tonight, to be the guest of the miners'  union. President Gompers of the American  Federation may also visit the city. It is  understood that the miners will present a  demand for an increase of at least 10 per  cent over the wages they at present receive, but it is almost equally certain that  the operators will make a stubborn resistance, as many of them claim that they  are either operating at a loss or very small  profit. The miners will also ask for an extension of the run of.mine bosses to the  districts where the screen basis now' prevails. This has been in. controversy for a  long time, and will be an important feature  of the convention. "Anagreement now exists  as to wages, made here two years ago a:#l  ratified at the joint conference at Columbus  last year.  The fact that the miners havo failed to  unionize West Virginia may prevent thcln  from getting an Increase at the present  time, as the operators of J'ennsylvaiila,  Ohio, Indiana and Illinois. claim that the  West Virginia operators who pay non-union  wages aro able to undersell them. The  union in West Virginia will probably receive considerable attention, ns the miners  are determined to'unionize the state.  President Mitchell, vlco-president Lewis  and secretary-treasurer Wilson will probably be elected without opposition.  Tho national executive board of the miners met here today to take up grievances  that will be presented to the convention.  The joint conference between the miners  and operators begins January 30th.  -*-4  ,-^'-S'8'^'^'S^'S'a'S,S'a'��'S'a��*^*a*^'i>'>'>'>''-��'>-->'->-->-->-->'^-'^-^-*^  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  IK  ESTABLISHED 1892  3  -&���  #  Portland Cement  Fire Brick  Fire Clay-  Sheet Iron  T Rails  Ore Cars  Blowers  Exhausters  Pumps  Graniteware  *Tinware  HARDWARE AND IRON MERCHANTS  HEATING STOVES  COOKING STOVES  AND RANGES 7  _* NELSON, B.

Papers have just been  prepared in this city.   The suit will be  to secure title to Cumberland island, off  the coast of Georgia,  which  Mr.  Carnegie aud his sister-in-law have made  a beautiful   park   and   mid-sea   home.  The fact that the' Stafford heirs had any  claim  to the property was  discovered  by an accident.    In tne papers on file  in   the  case  it  is  alleged   that Robert  Stafford bought the island now in dispute in 1848."  He had $300 at that time,  and went to the island to raise cotton.  In the second year of his work there he  'was married.r His wife was Elizabeth  Barnaby, famed as "The White Slave."  She was employed by a Georgia planter,  and her ancestors were white, but she  had been sold into slavery, and an action .was pending at the time to secure  her   freedom.    Robert  Stafford   fell   in  love with  her,  purchased  her  freedom  and made her his .wife.    It is the descendants   of  this   woman   and   Robert  Stafford   who  are  now  contending  for  the ?2,000,000.

Its property  to tho United Statos for .$10,000,000 was delivered to president Roosevelt this evening.  Tho members of the oommlasion refuse to  discuss the nature of the report, and like reticence was maintained at the White  House, but it was stated on excellent authority that the report unanimously recommends that the offers of the Panama company be accepted.  The report, it is stated, is very voluminous, going into all phases of the question  nnd attempting to meet the objections that  legal complications, will arise out of the  purchase or that there will be any international difficulties should the deal be consummated. The report was completed about  C o'clock this evening, .and after being  signed by the members of the commission  was carried by admiral "Walker, chairman  of the commission, to secretary Hay! who  transmitted it to the president. The latter  will send the report to congress the first of  the week, probably Monday.  The report goes fully into the steps that  must be taken in order to insure a perfect  title to the United States, for. in addition  to the present Panama Ganal Company, the  old organization and ' the Colombian government must be reckoned with. The report finds, however, that the new company  can give a clear title. It is stated that when  the commission made its recent report fav-  "ibring~the-"Nicaraguaniroute=no-offer^tO'sell-  to this government had been made by the  Panama company. The offer of 840.000,00  made in behalf of the company by M. Lam-  pre, it is said, changed the situation completely.  Rossland Strike Rumor  ROSSLAND, January 18.���Considerable interest was excited here today by  an announcement from various members of the miners' union that at an  emergency meeting of the union this  evening steps would be taken to discontinue the strike. The report was circulated so assiduously by well-known  union men that it was generally taken  for granted there could be no doubt as  to the result of the deliberations. The  expected did not happen, however, for  within a few minutes after the meeting  opened the executive asked for an adjournment to Tuesday or Wednesday  or next week on the ground that manager Kirby of the Centre Star and the  War Eagle mines had not yet been seen  was taken, and matters are still in statu  auo.
