PEKIN, January 7th. 12:45 p. m.���A  telephone message from Miah Chia Wu  station, outside the city, says the special train bearing the emperor and empress dowager is just, arriving. Thousands ot! officials have ass-mbled there  to receive their majesties. The entire  route to the entrance of the palace is  lined with troops.  PEKIN, January 7.���The imperial  court entered tho forbidden city at 7:30  o'clock this evening. It was the most  brilliant scene Pekin ever witnessed.  The procession consisted of a thousand  gorgeously attired noblemen mounted  upon glittering caparisoned horses. The  emperor, the empress dowager, prince  Chun, and several princesses Avere  borne in yellow chairs, their escorts  carrying hundreds of gay, banners and  silk umbrellas. The troops of general  Yuan Shi Kai, governor of Pe Chi Li,  preceded the emperor. The foreign com-  ��� munity assembled on top of the Chen  gate. The emperor and empress dowager entered the temple in the gate and  burned incense. The dowager empress  upon emerging from the temple saw the  foreigners peering clown and bowed. A  double row of soldiers, kneeling, lined  the four-mile route.  PEKIN, January 7.���-The re-entrance  c-f the Chinese emperor into Pekin today  wns the most remarkable episode in the  annals of the dynasty. The spectacular  phases of the return of the court exceeded expectations. The cortege Avas a sort  of glorified lord mayor's show and was  a "bewildering exhibition  tinselled splendor.  soiling whisky to Indians. Carlson  makes his headquarters at Port Town-  send. He recently mado a successful  trip along the Vancouver Island coast  and came here for a load of opium. The  police being after him, he had to get out  in a hurry and left on Saturday afternoon, closely followed by the police  boats. Ho remained in a bay near Victoria during Saturday night and on Sunday morning made a fresh start. The  strong wind of Sunday blew his sloop  into McNeill's hay, where the Santa  Clara is stranded, and the sailors of the  bark took him off just as a big wave  washed over the little craft carrying a  trunkload of opium overboard. A diver  has been engaged to recover the trunk  and contents. Carlson was one of a ring  engaged in smuggling opium and selling  whiskey to Indians.  Street Car Accident.  TORONTO, January 7.���As a result of  a collision of two electric cars at the  corner of Bloor street and Dover Court  road last night six persons were more or  less severely injured. Failure of the  brakes to act properly on a Bloor and  McCaul street car was the cause of the  collision.  WHY   AMERiCANT EXCELL  ORDERED PLACED ON THE LIST  *    -  Candidate Kirkpatriek is Eligible.  There was some doubt, owing to the instructions received from the attorney-general re  holding a court of revision, as to whether John A. Kirkpatrick's name could be placed on  the voter's list. It seems that the taxes on the Kirkpatriek-Wilson-Clements block had  been paid in due time, but that the taxes on an unimproved lot in which he holds an  interest as trustee had not been paid until after the voter's list was certified to as correct  by the mayor. It is understood the city clerk obtained a written opinion from the city  solicitor, which was, in effect, that Mr. Kirkpatrick's name should be placed on the list.  This will remove any doubt as to Mr. Kirkpatrick's nomination being a legal one. His  friends are Working hard and are sanguine of success.  of . Oriental  The Crew Given a Bad Name.  SEATTLE,  January  V.���-The steamer  Dispatch, which picked up the surviviors  of tile Walla Walla disaster, arrived in  port    yesterday,    and    captain    Victor  Johnston   gave a vivid   accout  of- the  work of rescue.   Of his own great service in saving the lives of so many he  would   talk   but   little.    He   expressed  strong indigination   at   the   actions of  some   of the   Walla   Walla   crew.    In  speaking of the wreck he said:    "To begin at the beginning,  we sailed from  San Francisco on New Years' Day, and  were passed that afternoon by the Walla  Walla.    I  thought no more about he;  until 8 o'clock the morning of January  2nd, when we picked up a life-boat containing   three   firemen.     These   men 1  suppose I Avill have to designate noAv as  men���told me   the   Walla   Walla   had  sunk;   that no  one  except themselves  were left to tell the tale.   At flrst I was  , inclined   to   discredit,   them,  but   they  stuck to their   story   after   they   Avere  ,"Jboard, so I had to believe them. Thou  !*L.j-xlawned on me what they had done;  ^^~v^had���sneaked^away^like-c_wards=  Jr��J;je sailors in a strong boat, capable  ^f'^carrying   many,   and   left   helpless  JIlO*. -      -  - - -  Th  .men and children to drown.   "Within  "short   timo  we   came  upon  another  j^.oat, and another, until we had found  -/our boats and four life-rafts all told.  ^JiVe cruised  around,  picking up people  , here and there and every where.   Such  hardships.    Some  were   hauled   aboard  unconscious',    others   wero   practically  nude, and many had borne up with remarkable   strength   and   vitality.     We  had to handle them,roughly getting them  aboard."  SAN FRANCISCO, January 7.���Nothing has been heard from the missing  victims of the AValla Walla disaster,  and it is feared that they all went down  with the steamer. The statement oi  outlook Johnson, made to the coroiw  at Eureka, that he saw the lights on  the bark Max and warned the officers  on the bridge of the Walla Walla, is  denied by them. Other members of the  crew of the Walla Walla corroborate  Johnson's assertion that the lights ->n  the French bark Avere visible. The conflicting statements will be investigated  by the United States marine authorities  and the responsibility for the disaster  fixed.  Racers Arrive in Good Condition.  LONDON, January 7.���The Atlantic,  transport line steamer Minnehaha arrived today, having on board Willia_i  C. Whitney's Derby candidate Nasturtium, and his Peg Woflington colt. They  were tr.eated throughout the voyage like  saloon passengers and are in splendic1  condition. The horses when they land  tomorrow Avill be taken on special trair  to Newmarket. Commenting on the  racing prospects of the American horses  the London Sun says: "If Mr. Whitney'"  horses are run satisfactorily in 1902  which they most distinctly were not it  1901. though neither Mr. Whitney no:  iiis trainer were ever held accountabh  .for their vagaries in form, there is nc  doubt as to Nasturtium's victory, and il  he is the victor, it should be thorough^  popular."  Opium Smuggler Caught.  VICTORIA, January 7.���Ole Carlson  oi* Ole Oleson, as ho is known to tlu  police and revenue officers of Bridal  Columbia and the Washington coast  was arrested on tho stranded bark Santr  Clara this  morning and charged with  Ben Tillett's Reasons.  Writing to the Loncion Express from  New York, where he was serving as a  British delegate to the capital and labor  conference, Ben Tillett, the representative Unionist, made some lively and  acute comments on the superiority of  America iu general and of the American  workingman in particular.  After marveling that from such an intermixture of races as exist here an  "approximately homogeneous type of individual" has developed, he goes on to  say:  "AVe are. not so lively or so imaginative, a race as the American continent is  producing, but the American, although  he may not be worth two cents, will  speak with easy grace of millions. Carnegie, Rockefeller/the vjpulds could not  believe more in their own personal worth  than the American of the second or  third generation speaks of his worth as  an American citizen.  "The air is clearer in the big cities  than we ever expect to get in the Old  Country. The individual worker is less  of a subordinate in America than he-.'.s  at home in England. He takes "a great  pride in his work, encouraged to do so  not only by more wages-according to  merit, but, because he feels he is a part  and parcel of the economy of industrialism, being consulted by the management whenever capacity is shown. ��� ��� ���  "His intelligence is tak-ii for what it  is worth, while i*t_England-.the same individual's intelligent" interest in his work  would be tc^ken as. presumption, and he  would likely be discharged for his impudence in daring to .have or use his  brains. Although the specialization and  division of labor here is really a science,  yet at the same time most of the intelligent workmen take an interest in the  product, which may be the result oi  combined labor, subdivided into minute  simplicity. The erection of a huge building towering up''thirty or more stories  is a matter of -Interest keenly debated.  "The American workman will sit at  supper with the richest, at the same  hotel, or take a part at any civil, social  or state  function. ���  "Being an individual forever aspiring  to comprehend and take part in the bus-  1 i hessr~6f" tf.ade'flgovern men t" and" admi n-=  istration, his very desire to be considered an important part of the greater  whole of social life compensates for his  incompetence often for the lesser_part  of social duties.  "He is not modest by any means; but  his audacity, His contempt for any formality, his cynicism for red tape, in  whatever manner or place the latter  may be exercised, save him from littleness. The press of America, although  it may flout liis power, never treats  his rights with contempt���that, at least,  may be said of the typical American  press. No one whines about him, sneers  at him, preaches to him, condemns him;  and perhaps that it largely the reason  why he has such an estimate of himself.  "He is just a good talker, eater, drinker, dresses well, works hard, wants a  lot of leisure���gets it, too; is a robust,  boastful, energetic follow; swears by the  constitution he has, perhaps, never  read, and in consequence knows but little of, and is altogether a 'durned proposition' not to be ignored.  "There is but little racial exclusive-  ness in his social habits���hardly'any -it  all in his working life. His opposition  to the 'Dagoes' (Italians) or the lower  order of Jews is entirely owing to the  fact that these ai-e more slavish in their  drudgery than tlie more highly paid and  independent Americans. One point al30  which has* been half told by the numerous critics of British workmen is that  American workmen Avill do more work,  will consent to do so without grumbling,  so long as it adds to the effective competitive powers of the manufacturer,  either against a fellow-manufacturer or  another country who may be a trade  rival.  "There is certainly some truth in the  fact stated that the American workman  shares the interest of his employer  against competitors, but the employer  depends less upon sentiment to induce  such interest than he does upon material recognition and reward of such royalty.  "The 'minimum' bogey so much waggled before the British public, scaring  them out of their trade wits, is laid low  in America by the entire acceptance of  the minimum for the average workmen,  with rewards and increased Avages in  ratio to the increased valuer of the particular workman or workmen,  "The results may be easily gauged.  Although the American employer :s  more or less like other employers, anx  ious to obtain efficient labor at lowest  cost, he is more mathematical in his estimates of what is cheapest "labor by  results. He .does not, on the Avhole, begrudge the worker something more thah  a beggarly pittance, and as a result, he  obtains a willing and loyal servant.' I  should be the last to believe he does this  ���out of mere sentimental interests in the  workman. Far from that, he is a mater-  alistic, and values the productive results of a good Avage to the toiler exactly as he would measure the productive results of good feed lo his hors_e.  "The essence of difference between  American and Britis h labor relationship with capital is that AVhile Avorkmen  in England are expected to give the maximum of energy and skill for a minimum wage the American employer takes  the ordinary or average capacity of  workers as deciding the minimum rate,  rewarding according to superior efficiency the individual or individuals, being  only too pleased to pay extra for ability  out of the normal.  ;' "The encouragement thus given induces a loyalty and interest much beyond the mere value of additional wages.  It is a fact discreditable to British employers that the Americans have hit the  weak spot of our national vanity, and  are anxious to-see another big fight undertaken, so that 'the spoils of dislocation may go to America. Yet our press  and our employers let loose all the vic-  iousness of class prejudice in an. attempt to break down .the institutions  which have been made for the improvement 'of the people's condition.  "Trade unionism;is making more rapid  strides in America than in England, and  : hardly an article of daily use among  the people is sold without the label of  the union being attached.  "The whole secret of the superiority  in America is ' the fact that workmen  enforce recognition and respect, and at  all times, where'.' organization exists,  command the confidence of employers.  Discussing the drawbacks involved in  the race question in this country Mr.  Tillett alludes with emphasis to the  Chinese, for whom, he declares, there is  no hope.  The Englishman concludes his study  with this panegyric:  "If only our supposed leaders of  thought at home, our leading press and  statesmen would- learn that the best way  the German ambassador not only insisted upon the .attendance at the function of lady Pauncefote at the head of  the line, but offered to act as her personal escort. It'i was, therefore, at his  instance that she took the head of the  Una Diplomats \generaily deplore the  circulation this ''���morning of stories,  which, they assert, are not only untrue,  but place other diplomats in an attitude  of criticism, when,.as'a matter of fact,  they applaud herr vpn Holleben's consideration and tact.', Lord Pauncefote  was so much improved today that he  was able to be down stairs. ���'. The ambas-3  sador has been troubled for some time  with rheumatic goiit, which took rather  an acute turn a few days ago, confining  him to his room. There is every prospect that he will be restored soon to his  usual vigor.  The Bag for the Week.  LONDON, January --,'������.���-Lord Kitchener, telegraphing from ��� Johannesburg  on Monday, January 6th, reports the occurrence of a number of skirmishes in  various parts of the warfield, The most  serious was at Amersfbort, January 3rd  and 4th, when major. W. H. Plummer  and colonel J. S. Pens were in contact  "with commandant --Christian Botha's:  and commandant Opperman's commands. They drove the Bosrs from their  positions after considerable fighting,  during which the Somerset light infantry suffered severely. Major Valentine and 18 men were killed and 5 officers and 23 men were wounded. The  Boers left 9 men dead on the field. Colonel Brander surprised field :��� cornet  Louis' laager at Watervaal on January  5th, killing 5 men and capturing 29.  Lord Kitchener mentions other minor  surprises and captures. General French  reports that the Boers in Cape Colony  are so reduced in number, as to require  only an elaborate pqlice system to keep  them in check. The week's total of the  Boer casualities are 36 men killed, 9  wounded, 261 made prisoners, and 72  surrendered.  of making- a hatiofl~i,eally"great="is'~to  make the people themselves proudly independent, self-confident, with a love  and belief in their nationality, then,  and then only, can the potentialities of  Avill power, of energy and resources command an unassailable position such ps  is in evidence here.

MURRAY, Kentucky, January 6 ���  Nathan Stubblefield, the local electrician and inventor, who says he has solved the problem of wireless telephony,  gave a public exhibition of his apparatus in the main street here today.  Citizens Avere called into service and  stood at the instruments communicating  Avith one another, with perfect ease at a  distance of six blocks. The tests were  largely attended, this being the second  exhibition Stubblefield has given, and  his success created great excitement. He  has been working on the problem for  years.  Stubblefield and his son, who assisted,  him set up the apparatus during the  morning and tests were conducted at  noon. The apparatus is simple. A wire  is buried in the ground to a depth of  several feet, with a plate attached at the  bottom. The wire extends above ground  perpendicularly about six feet. Batteries  of special construction are attached.  Stubblefield has received offers for  public exhibitions, but he is as yet undecided whether or not to accept. At the  end of the exhibition several citizens  made affidavits as to the efficiency of  the apparatus.  German Ambassador Appointed.  WASHINGTON, January 7.���Both herr  von Holleben, the German ambassador,  and officials at the .state department, declare that there is no truth in the statement alleging that the ambassador Avas  affronted by the order of diplomatic  procedure at the White House reception  yesterday. The fact is that lady Pauncefote, Avife of the British ambassador,  early in the day sent word to the German embassy of the illness of her husband, and iuferentially resigned to the  representative of the kaiser the position  in the line accorded to the dean of the  diplomatic corps.   With great delicacy,  Mules Ate Timbers.    .  MAHANOY CITY, Pennsylvania, January 6.���Eleven, mules, imprisoned in a  gangway at William Penn colliery since  '~tE^fl-od_tir-eew  thought to be dead, were discovered alive  by the mine officials this morning. The  poor beasts were huddled together and  scarcely able to stand.  The surroundings told of their marvelous escape and frantic efforts to stay  off starvation. The mine timbers for  many yards up the gangway, along with  considerable canvas, had been completely eaten away. The beasts are now  being fed on oatmeal, and, with proper  care, the officials say can be saved.  Another remarkable freak of the flood  "was also unearthed at Maple Hill colliery today. A big mule, tho only one  of thirteen to escape death, has turned  gray with fright. The animal before the  deluge was coal-black in color, and has  now turned to a light gray. Identification was established only by means of  a flesh brand.  Pascoe, single; John Pearce, married;  Jacob Hunlalla, married. Thus far but  one body has been taken out, that of  Hunlalla, and one man was rescued  alive. It is thought the other bodies  can not be reached within 24 hours. The  miner rescued is Dominico Basso, an  Italian. Basso described the disaster in  the mine as follows: "We were seated  around the pump at the bottom of the  shaft, when, without any warning,  thousands of tons of ore came down. I  remember no more until I heard the  sound of picks and shovels in the hands  of the rescuers, and their shouts. I was  in total darkness, and my feelings can  not be described. What seemed ages to  me was but minutes. When the rescuers  found me I was 75 feet from the place  where I was sitting and found myself  in a drift. How I got there is a mystery, but can only be accounted for by  the concussion of th��'wind."' The Ne-  . gaunee is one of the most unlucky properties in the Lake Superior district.  Much trouble in sinking and drifting  has resulted from surplus water and  quicksands. It was at this mine that  $1,000,000 was recently expended to sink  a shaft to the ledge.  Gone to Investigate.  PORT TOWNSEND, Washington January 7.���The United States revenue cutter Grant sailed this morning for an extended cruise along the shores of the  straits of Juan de Fuca and also along  the coast south of Cape Flattery to examine the large amount of wreckage  reported along the beach during the past  two weeks. It is believed that many vessels have met with disaster during the'  continued gales which have prevailed  since December 25th as the Indians  daily bring reports to Neah bay of new  wreckage coming ashore south of Cape  Flattery. Captain Tozier of the Grant  will make a tour of investigation for  the purpose of ascertaining if possible  the names of the vessels from which the  reported wreckage came. The steamer  Alice Gertrude arriving from Neah bay  today reports last night this storm down  the,straits as being of great violence,  and off Cape Flattery the wind reached  the velocity almost of a hurricane, driving vessels in the vicinity of Cape Flattery out to sea. Vessels in the straits  sought__shelteri__in_Pprti^ngeJes^_and=  Callam bay.  acres of land. Of this 92,147 acres were  Manitoba and Northwestern railway  lands. This shows a very large increase  over 1900, when only 52,642 acres wero  disposed of. The remarkably fine  weather continues throughout the entire  west and the demand for farm lands  continues unabated. Manitoba's remarkable progress is said to be attracting the  attention of the Northern Pacific, and  it is believed to be in certain quarters  the desire of that road to again enter  the province. A party of Emerson gentlemen who own a charter for a road to  be built from Emerson through Rosen-  field and northwest to Portage la  Prairie were in the city yesterday to interview James Fisher, solicitor of the  Northern Pacific, but the result of the  negotiations are as yet a secret. When  interviewed today on the matter Mr.  Fisher said he did not deny the rumor.  HILL'S BAILBOAD  Smallpox.  TORONTO, January 7.���Smallpox has  broken out in a settlement of Dowie-  ites in Stephen township, Huron county,  and the health officials have been given  much trouble, as the people refuse acceptance of the assistance of physicians.  GRAFTERS GIVEN WARNING  LINE PROJECTED TO TAP  THE COAL FIELDS.  GONTRAOTORS CONFIDENT THAT  THE WORK WILL BE COMMENCED THIS SPRING.  President Grants Admiral's Request.  WASHINGTON, January 7.���The object of admiral Schley's visit to the  White House yesterday was to request  the president to entertain and consider  an appeal for the reversal of the action  of secretary Long and the disapproval  of the majority judgment of the court  of inquiry. The interview was satisfactory, the president granting the admiral's request. Messrs. Raynor and  Teague will today assist admiral Schley  in the preparation of the appeal. Admiral Schley's interview with the president was the result of his determination to exhaust every means in his power  to overrule the judgment which has been  rendered against him. His new appeal  will be different' from that submitted  to the department, bringing out some  facts which will have an important  bearing upon the controversy.  Cave-in at a Mine.  NEGAUNEE, January 7.���The most  distressing accident occurring in this  country for several years occurred at  the Nagaunee mine today at noon, when  by a cave-in the lives of thirteen to seventeen miners are thought to have been  lost. The cave-in was at the bottom of  the old shaft. Had it occurr-d an hour  sooner about 150 men would have lost  their lives. The names of the dead '.;o  far as known are William Williams,  married; John   Sullivan,   single;   John  Want to Know More About the Trade  VICTORIA, January 7.���The Victoria  Board of Trade this morning passed a  resolution urging the Dominion govern-  ment"t6~ have Mr. Parke, the Canadian  commissioner, return to Canada and  confer with the boards of trade on Australian trade, and to particularly inform the business men on the new conditions arising out of the confederation  of the Australian colonies. A committee  was also appointed to draft a memorial on trade, to strengthen the hands  of the Canadian premier at the conference of colonial premiers to be held fn  London.  Want Colonials in the Navy.  TORONTO, January 7.���The Evening  Telegram's London cable says: "Sir  Charles Dilke, at a meeting of the ship  masters' society, made a speech referring to admiralty sending a trainipg  ship to Newfoundland. He said the admiralty were troubled le3t they should  be spending money to increase efficiency  among the seamen, and indicating that  colonials might be induced to enter into  Uncle Sam's navy after they had received their training.  Went Against the Collector.  WASHINGTON, January. 7.���The- Bee-,  retary of the treasury, has rendered a  decision on the appeal of John Efflnger  against the action of the collector tf  customs at Honolulu in assessing duty  on merchandise brought into that_ port  from Pango Pango, Tutila. The secretary sustained the collector, holding that  Tutila is foreign territory within the  revenue laws of the United Statese.  Land Sales in Manitoba,  WINNIPEG, January 7.���It is announced here that the C. P. R. will in  future demand one-sixth cash payment  for all lands sold to persons who do not  propose to settle upon it, but rather purchase for speculation. It has hitherto  l>een the practice to charge as the first  payment one-tenth the purcnase price,  but this privilege, in future, will be allowed only to actual settlers. The provincial land department has during the  year   just   closed   disposed  of   151,079  Protection Promised Citizens.  NEW YORK, January 7.���Mayor Low  sent his' first message to the board of  aldermen today. It was brief and the  only subject treated therein was blackmail in the civil administration, in  stamping out of which he .said he desired the co-operation of the people of  the city.  "If during the next two years," the  message said, "any. citizen or employee  pays money illegally to avoid any inconvenience or to secure his service, he will  do it because he wants to and not because he must. No one, from the largest  corporation to the poorest bootblack,  need pay one dime for protection from  harm or to secure just treatment at the  hands of the city government. No laborer or pther employee need part with  one cent of his salary to anyone, either  in or out of the city government. Anyone asked to make lmprop er payment  for any purpose has only to report the  fact to the mayor to be sure of protection arid redress. With the co-operation  of the citizens and of the city employees,  the whole foul system can be broken  up."  In charging the January grand jury  today, judge Foster took notice, of tne  statement put forth ,by officers of. the  city government that attempt had been  made to. bribe fusion members of the  board of aldermen to vote with the  Democratic members of the organization.  "I don't know,", the judge said,  "whether these charges publicly made  are founded on truth, history or fiction.  The public is entitled to know. If, after  investigation, you find them true, the  guilty one ought to be indicted and to  receive severe punishment and the merited disgrace which our law provides for  such crimes. If, on the other hand, you,  after investigation, shall find them  wholly unsupported in fact, then those  who,gave cuurency to such baseless, yet  serious charges should be held up to the  community as alarmists and worthy of  rebuke. Such statements, if unfounded,  serve only to bring our government, our  institutions and our public officers into  groundless suspicion and disfavor."  The board of aldermen, after electing  Mclnnis, fusion, vice-chairman of the  board adopted by acclamation a resolution asking the mayor to furnish to the  "board^whatever "informatioa^he^may-  have regarding the alleged attempt at  bribery, in order that if such an attempt  had been made, prosecution of the offenders may be instituted.  Boundary Local News.  GREENWOOD, January 7.���[Special  to The Tribune.]���Judge Leamy heid  county court here today, sitting all day.  The cases were of little public interest.  Two carloads of machinery, part of  tho big hoisting engine manufactured  by the Jenckes Machine Company, consigned to the Sunset mine arrived today  from the manufactury at Sherbrooke,  Quebec.  Advices received from Halifax intimate that John L. Meiklejohn has been  appointed lance corporal and R. J. Coulter corporal. Both are Greenwood men.  They joined tho third contingent at  Nelson.

Cleghorn, for many years managing partner. Business will be continued by representatives of the Mackenzie heirs. ,  It has been definitely decided to build a  connecting link between the Great Northern and the Northern Pacific west of the  Rocky mountains. The line will extend  from Kallspell, Montana, on the main lino  of the Great Northern, to a point on the  Northern Pacific west of Missoula.  It is reported that the party of Great  Northern surveyors who have been in the  district for the past three months making  a complete survey will be ready to report  plans and specifications by March 1st, and  the work of construction will begin thereafter as soon as bids can be received and  contracts let,  It develops that president James J. Hill  had the building of this line In view when  he began negotiations for the control of  the output of the Crow's Nest Coal Company's mines at Fernie, British Columbia,  and the merging of the Great Northren  with the Northern and Burlington. The  road will be primarily _ coal road and  will be constructed for the purpose of furnishing the Northern Pacific and the Burlington with coal. v,  It is also conceded that president .Hill  has In view the carrying out of the pro-"  ject first formulated by the late Marcus  Daly to supply the Butte smelters' with  British Columbia coal and coke. There is  no finer coal ln existence for coking than  the Crow's Nest coal, and the building of  the Kallspell cut-off will mean the construction of Immense coking ovens in the  country along the boundary.  "While I do not want to be known ln the"  matter, you can say that the proposed lino  south from Kallspell to connect with the  Northern Pacific will be "built next summer," said a St. Paul railway contractor.  "I am not at liberty to give the source of  my information, but I "nm positive of the  facts. It will not be definitely known what  the.route will be until the surveyors now  engaged on the work make their report,  but enough Is known to say that the road  will follow the western shore of Flathead  lake, thence down the valley of the Flathead river to a junction with the Northern  Pacific probably In the .vicinity of Jocko,  44 miles west of Missoula; < ::  - "The' distance -between Kallspell ��� and  Jocko Is. about G5. miles, air line, and tho  distance by rail will not exceed 90 miles.  The Crow's Nest coal fields will thus be  reached by building a line north from Columbia Falls to the International boundary, or rather connect with the Montana  & Great Northern road from Jennings at  a point near the International boundary.  The Crow's Nest coal fields will thus bo  reached with about 76 miles of road, making tho total distance from the coal mines  to Jocko about 170 miles. The distance from  Jocko to Butte via the Northern Pacific is  172 miles.  "It will thus be seen that both line-  will have an equal haul ln putting the coal  into Butte. The Great Northern will havo  the advantage of a down grade haul the  entire distance, while the heavy work will  be done by the Northern Pacific. As a result the Great Northern, while getting on  equal distribution of the revenue, will bo  in a position to earn more per mile on tho  same basis than the Northern Pacific, and  thus keep the former road a little in advance of Its formidable rival in the matter  of earning capacity as compared with expenses, an item Uiut Is ntver overlooked  by president Hill. In fact, the Great Northern can deliver the coal destined for Butte  to the Northern at Jocko at a less revenue  and earn more than If it were to haul the  coal the entire distance over Its own lino  via Pacific Junction.  "The Great Northren to deliver C-ow's  -Nestiicoal=vI_^Its=own=line--to-the=smcUws__:  at Butte would have to haul It about 625  miles over the steepest grades on Ms Fys-  tem, hence the cost of hauling would more  than equal the difference in revenue if  hauled by the shorter route, which will not  exceed 350 miles. It Is a purely business  proposition, and, with the two roads working In harmony under the consolidation,  is bound to be a good one, and is b'.-.t another instance of the business acumen of  president Hill."  Corroborative evidence of the building of  tho proposed cut-off was given yestcidoy  by a railway contractor who arrived fiom  Jennings yesterday morning, after having  completed a contract on the Jennings  branch. He said: "I have seen with regret  the efforts of tho people of Kallspell to  hypnotize themselves into tho belief that  the so-culled Kalispell-Llbby cut-off will  be built by the Great Northern, and that  the route will run south of the present '  main line. This cut-ore will never be built.  Tho Jennings branch to the Crow's Nest  coal fields Is to be made a part ot a new  line which will cut out Kallspell altogether.  "A rood Is to be built north from Columbia Falls along the north fork of the Flathead river, thence west to connect with  tho Jennings branch at Tobacca Plains.  There are two feasible routes. One Is north  along the north fork to Yak-ln-1-kak creek,  thence west to Its headwaters and across  tho divide to Grave creek, down which an  easy grade Is found to a connection with  the Jennings branch near the International  boundary. The second route Is to extend,  tho line along the north fork of the Flathead river into British Columbia, thence  west to connect with the Crow's Nest  Southern.  "Tho distance between Jennings and Kallspell via the present line Is SI miles, and  while the proposed route appears to be a.  roundabout way it will not exceed the present line over 20 miles, and will have a  grade that will not be surpassed in any  mountainous district in the country. Tho  Jennings grade is at no place more than  one tenth of one per cent, and It is claimed  that almost as good results can be obtained  by the building of the line north from Columbia Falls.  "The Columbia Falls line Into the British  Columbia coal fields will connect at Kallspell with the proposed line south to tho  Northern Pacific, at some point west of  Missoula."

The public  " utility gag is used by the opponents  " of Mr. Fletcher to throw dust into tlie  " eyes of the electors and as a cloud to  "cover personal antagonism of the edi-  " tor of The Tribune.    The latter has  " claimed  the right, as though he was  " the  Lord's annointed  and  born with  " the divine right to rule, to dictate the  " policy of every mayor Nelson has had  " and  failing in this  he  usually starts  " a crusade of defamation till the people  '��� have become tired of his blusterings.  " With Mr. Kirkpatriek   as   mayor   he  " would run municipal matters to suit  " his own  ideas;   on   the   other   hand,  " with Mr. Fletcher re-elected the wants  " and  the interests of the public,  and  " not of one individual, would be looked  " after as they should be."   Two candidates are in the field for mayor at the  coming election.    Both are well-known  citizens, and both   have  their   friends.  Surely,   in   all   fairness,   the  individual  friends of each of the two candidates  have a right to exercise all the privileges  the law accords them.   Or are such privileges to be exercised only by those who  for the time happen to support one of  the candidates, and that the one who'iQ  candidacy  meets with  the  approval  of  the Miner?    If this is so, where is the  "fair play" so much boaste.l of as a h2r-  itage of Britons?    In the election contests that have been held in Nelson, the  editor of The Tribune has exercised all  the privileges the law gave him, and no  more. He   has   stood    by   his   friends  whether they were popular or unpopular.  After the ballots were counted, the contest was over, as far as he was concerned.   No man elected to office in Nelson  can say that John  Houston   ever  ap-j  proach-d him,   directly,   or   indirectly,  to do any act that would benefit him  (John Houston) as an individual.   Nelson has been an incorporated city for  five years, three years of which John  Houston was mayor, and it is safe to assume that he dictated his own policy.  George H. Neelands was mayor for one  year, and he will not   say   that   John  Houston in any way attempted to dictate his policy, and in uo single line  in The Tribune was he defamed as an  official.   Frank Fletcher has been mayor  of Nelson one year, and John Houston  has, asked him for, but one favor���-the appointment of James McPhee to the position of city electrician.'   Neither The  Tribune nor its editor have attempted  to dictate mayor. Fletcher's policy.   The  Tribune has criticized mayor Fletcher's  official acts and condemned his change  of front on the eiectric light, question.  But mayor Fletcher has not.been defamed by The Tribune. During the five  years that Nelson has been incorporated,  the   Miner   has   kept   up   a continual  stream of dirty mud-thrt>wing at and  personal villificatiori of John Houston,  both as an official and as editor of The  Tribune.    Yet, John Houston has seen  the Miner go into the hands of the sheriff, and its friends go down to defeat  in every election except one" that has  been held in Nelson.  The Tribune supports John A. Kirkpatriek ��� for mayor because it believes  "Kittrb-th^capaM^  is capable is shown by the success he  has had in managing his own business  ventures, which is the only test that  should have weight with -nan who think  for themselves:,. His personal honesty  has never been questioned, and no city  can be well governed unless its officials  are personally honest. Apart from ue-  ing capable and honest, Mr. Kirkpatriek believes that the city should make  tho most of the public utilities it owns.  Close on to ?200,000 have been invested  in these utilities, and Mr. Kirkpatriek  does not believe in doing anything that  would impair this large investment. Instead, if elected to offlce he would do  his utmost to improve them so that thoy  would earn the maximum, and not tho  minimum, of revenue. As a good business man, which he is admitted to be,  he would see to It, if elected mayor, that  the paid officials of the city did their  whole duty to the city. ��� 'le would have  no loafing and no inefficiency. The capacity and honesty of a candidate und  the maintenance of public utilities to  a high degree of efficiency are questions  that concern the people, and they should  be discussed in the public press.  them in their efforts. Candidate Fletcher  and his supporters should be manly and  straightforward in the matter. If they  believe it would be to the people's interest "to have the lighting business  turned over to a private -jompany, why  do they not advocate such a policy?  There are arguments that could be used  in favor of it. But the Fletcher crowd  would have the people believe they are  in favor of municipal ownership of public utilities, when they are secretly  working to promote the interests of a  private company.   Latest Railroad Scheme.  "From New York to Paris without  change of cars!"  "It cannot be possible," exclaims the  world with a laugh.  "Nothing is impossible," replies M. De  Lobel. "We will be running through trains  tn  live or six  years."  "Oh, yes, the project will go through,"  echoes captain John J. Healey, the Alaskan pioneer from his winter home in  Nome. "We are arranging to begin work  in the spring."  "It will be a great thing. The greatest  railroading feat that ever was," continues  M. De Lobel, according to the New York  Tribune. "No more seasickness, no more  danger of wrecked liners a fast trip in palace cars, with every convenience."  "Go ahead and build your road," says  the public. "We will believe it when we see  It accomplished, and perhaps we will make  the trip If the fare is reasonable."  And this refreshing French explorer and  engineer is serious In his belief that the  road can be pushed through. He has made  captain Healey, the Klondike explorer and  manager of the North American Transportation Company believe him. Together  they will undertake to build the Trans-  Alaskan-Siberian railroad, = the most important link in the Paris-New York Trunk  line. It will connect the great Russian  railroad with one of the American transcontinental lines.  The difficult part of the plan lies in  getting the trains from Asia to America  across Behring strait. M. De Lobel says  "they a tunnel under the strait If  they cannot develop the ferry system. The  ferry would be possible in summer, but  the strait has a fashion of freezing solid in  winter, and the Ice Is a little rough for  iceboats, even if one could be built of sufficient size to carry the "palace trains."  The'Frenchman: flrst proposed the scheme  In 1898, and captain Healey promised' to interest the Chicago capitalists who have  backed him with great success In Alaskan  mining ventures. The Russian government  has been approached on the matter, and assistance is expected from the United States  and France. Even the English ought to  help but to a certain extent, for the road is  run through many miles of Canadian territory*���when it runs.  M. De Lobel is "strong" for Americans.  Ho fought for their Interests In the Klondike a few years ago. Since, his return to  ���France he has written several articles,  showing how American miners have.been  treated unjustly by the English authorities in "the Yukon country. He -has even  found facts- which he thinks will excuse  the attempts at making the Klondike Independent from British sovereignty.  This information regarding the round-  the-world-road should be a boon for- the  women who expecte to go abroad next  summer. They will have a valid excuse for  postponing the trip. Chicago people will  welcome the road with open arms. They  may even try to capture the American terminal. No-longer will they have to go; to  Europe by way of New York.  But, after all is said, is. this Paris-New  York railway scheme so visionary? No  one believed a few years ago that the trip  from Paris to Pekin and Shanghai would  ever bo made across the European and  Asiatic continents. Today the great Trans-  Siberian ��� railroad, the eighth wonder'of  the world, If you please, is complete. One  can board a train in Paris and ln twenty  days, more -or less, can be taking tiffin  in the Oriental at Shanghai, and that without having crossed a single mile of ocean.  The old-time zigzag route, through, the  ���Mediterranean and Indian ocean, took  something like six weeks. One may laugh  at the "windy" Paris engineer and the  energetic Alaskan pioneer, but It Is well  to do,so with a mental reservation that  some day one may be glad to join with  them in laughing at obstacles overcome.  ��� 0j^'00. 00.00 . 00 '00 .00 .00.00. 00 . 00 .030 . 00 . ^_,  S?"S_-*_ ^���"'S*' S_**' __^ *__'���������*'*__**"' -*���**��� SB*"**" _Sft>^���"SI-'*" *'��_��' __��������* *  '������-���"k'V' ������^,�����-��.��� ^-i ',**s. ������*��-*��������_,��� *���*. ��*��. ��� *��i^--SET���*���������_-> ���'Sya  to  to  to  to  to  to  �����*i��*��@��"S��a:#i_*#'S"*i����"#*��"*��ig��.��-��s  IVID  to  to  to  to  9\  to  to  What a howl would go up from candidate Fletcher's friends were it even insinuated that he is kept in leading  strings; that he takes no stand on any  public question, from repremanding a  policeman to making a deal with the  West Kootenay Power & Light Company, without first consulting Deacon  Cameron.  Of course, the supporters of candidate  Fletcher are annoyed when told their  ticket is a straight Bonnington Falls one.  But when men prefer to affiliate with  the West Kootenay Power & Light Company, they should not be ashamed of the  company they keep. The West Kootenay Power & Light Company wants to  gain an entrance into Nelson, and every  man on the   Fletcher   ticket   will   aid  A Philadelphia Grafter.  Select council, that remarkable aggregation of ward bosses who are so many  spokes ln the great fly-wheel of the Ash-  brldge machine, is about to lose one of its  most influential ��� members���the man with  a conscience, "who votes as he thinks," as  he has declared��� James P. McNlchol. That  politics make strange bed-fellows has,rarely been so curiously exemplified as in the  relations this man came to bear with one  whose chief political capital in his campaigns for the coronership, shrievalty and  mayoralty was his activity In secret organizations which would compel him to reject  "the stone th'a"t~maderthe: chiefreorner-stone^  ol" his administration.  The extraordinary type of personage that  breaks faith with a community, and not  only attempts to justify himself therein,  but to show that he is a high-spirited public benefactor, was discussed in these columns a couple of weeks ago. Mr. McNich-  ol is another type with symptomatic variations. During the last few sessions of. Select Council Mr. McNichol's manifestations  . have been so aggressive that he might  properly claim attention as a victim of  a distinctively new malady which, tentatively, and for ��� purposes of convenience,  we ventured to term Ashbridgepsis. It  may not be amiss to repeat for the enlightenment of students who missed that brief  treatise, that those who are not directly or  indirectly in the pay of the local administration, are in receipt of some-equivalent  favor or hope of It, appear to be absolutely  immune from the ailment.  James P. McNlchol Is the select councilman from the Tenth ward, whicli is one  of the worst In tho city for political conditions. A recent addition to this ollice-hold-  hig contingent was a gentlemen who, it Is  reputably asserted, was In charge of the  repeaters whom sergeant Semple declined  to pilot through the Tacony district at the  last February ' election. For this refusal  Semple was "hounded," to repeat the term  he used In his open letter of resignation  to the department.  The presumption is that this man got  his place and $1S00 salary in the department  of Safety through Mr. McNichol's inllu-  ence. That the latter believes in advancing the interests of his ward was shown  last spring when he introduced into the  Select Council an ordinance appropriating  $8000 for a rookery in the Tenth ward assessed, at J1S00. The owner of the property  when asked, did not know who had lixed  the price of $8000, but the bill in that shape  passed Mr. McNichol's branch and is now  before the common council.  Tho Bullitt charter, which contains !so  many admirable��� features which haye  proven Inoperative, undertakes to prevent  ajiy'councilman from becoming Interested  In a bill upon which he votes, or In any  contract with the city or municipal department. Mr. McNlchol is a member of  the firm of McNlchol & Bro., contractors.  By a nice distinction which appears to satisfy the law under which a councilman  would lose his seat .if found participating  directly or Indirectly In a city contract,  the brother, D. J. McNlchol, who Is not a  member of the councils, has received $8.-  000,000 or $!),000,000 of city contracts during  the incumbency of the other brother-as  select councilman, and this notwithstanding the fact that the contracting brother  was not only not the lowest but the highest bidder to the extent of more than $100,-  000 on the filtration contracts alone.  Tho enthusiasm with which the brother,  who is in councils, lauds the liberality of  an administration that awards millions In  contracts to his brother and business partner, who is not in councils, can be appreciated without special effort or particular  insight. J. P. will be a loss to the administration whatever bis g-iin may be to D.  J. and to the Richardson & Rows Company,  of which J. P. wa.s one of the Incorporators  and which has been In receipt of city contracts.���The North American.  to  >*>  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  9\  to  to  to  9\  ���to  9\  m  to  to  to  to  9\  9}  ONE   WEEK   ONLV  ONE   WEEK  "We will offer the balance of our Fall and Winter  Stock at Bargain Prices to clear before stock taking.

SHINBURN THE CRACKSMAN  ��� \  The Frince of Ttiem All.  \t1ig moilcrn burs-liir alarm not only rcn-  ii(rs it iiltei-ly Impossible for any one'to  disturb a vault protected with it without  detection, but it also gives a signal at the  llrst attempt to raise n window, tile a bar,  or enter a door. So thoroughly does it.  protect tho depositors of great wealth that  il lias ilclied the wonderful skill of the  cracksmen, until today the few living experts of that class of crooks are found  either in abject poverty or devoting the  genius which brought them millions twenty  years ago to the practice of crime of the  most petty character. One can scarcely fall  to notico the utter absence o�� great bank  robberies during the past five or ten years,  A few have been successfully performed In  that time, but with one single exception  the money was obtained from the cashier  during banking hours as he glanced down  t'ne barrel of a six-shooter. The exception  was when a stranger engaged the cashier  in conversation while he hooked out a roll  with a wire under the official's nose.  The electrical burglar alarm of today, the  great modern safes, which will even resist dynamite, are the result of a series of  bunk robberies extending over a period ol!  twenty or thirty years, which were conceived and successfully carried out by a  band of criminals, many nf whom are alive  today. The fabulous sums which they  carried away made the invention of mechanical devices which would outwit their  skill necessary, and they came in the  course of time, until today a robbery like  that of the Manhattan or one like the  Ocean bank in New York city, where over  a. million dollars was taken in money is impossible. It is doubtful if one could be carried out no matter-how much care was employed, for experiments have shown'that  even the men who safeguard the vaults  of.tho great banks of the country, by surrounding them with a network of wires,  cannot go through the silent guardians  without giving an alarm.  TOOK BRAINS AND SKIM"..  Twenty years ago a. bank robbery with  proceeds up In the hundreds ot" thousands  of dollars was possible, but could only bo  successfully carried out by men with brains  and skill, who had tlio patience to study  their enterprise before entering upon it.  Bank (illleials were not a bit less vigilant  in those days than they are now, but the  brain of the crook had gone ahead of the  brain of the honest man, a. condition hard  to understand today, when the vevy re-  verso is the fact. Few people have any  idea of the amount of study put into the  job by Ihe crasksman, before any real attempt to realize is made. One of the best  living illustrations of the old school of  crooks is Maximillian Schonbein. better  known to the police of the world as Max-  millian Shinburn. After defying the vault  makers and safe makers of the world and  looting the banks in this country- and  abroad for an aggregate gain of $5,000,000  this great criminal fell a victim to modern science. Ho was released not long ago  from the C'linto, New York, prison, after  serving a five years' term for robbing the  Muddleburg bank, penniless, gray with  age. broken in health and spirit. The story  of the man's life is like a romance, full  of chapters which it is hard to believe.  In his prime ho was truly the greatest  criminal in the world. Ruloff, the butcher,  who fought his way to freedom scores of  times over the bodies ot his own victims,  excelled him In daring, perhaps, but no  criminal that ever lived had his mechanical genuis.  Shinburn is a German, was taught the  trade of machinist and locksmith by his  father, came to this country before he was  17 years of age, and had launched on a  career of crime before he was IS. Tie had  _Wimdei.'f-iil_&klJJ^j3^ Jqcjw  taken up hy two noted criminal's, George  \.?>liHs and "Fairy" McGuire. whom he met  inV-ii. New York gambling house.

At thai  2..ho  only   safe   in   use   in   banks  an-'  v'j's houses in  this country was madr  1 Lily company. Shinburn figured thai  a ,hvlin knew the l,ily lock could  loot  fe;,    j safe in the country.  I'jRAltNKl"* IT ALL.  He decided to go and work for the Lily  company, r.llss ami McGuire agreed te  keep him In funds while he studied. Such  an expert machinist its Shinburn had no  dllllculty In getting the Job he wanted.  It look him over a year to obtain till th-  knowledge lie wanted for the successful  consummation of the series of robberies*  lie had planned, but he. kept at work with  patience. The most important discovery he  made at that time was that a person with  acute- hearing could, by putting his car  near tlie lock of a Lily safe and turning the  diel, discover at what numbers the' tumblers drop in place. Tie made a careful study  of difficult combinations, and is creditor'  with the discovery that drove the Jjily  safe out of the market. He removed the  combination from a. safe and then placed  an Impressionable piece of paper under it  Then he turned tho dial slowly and found  that whenever a. combination number way  reached the impression on the paper became more distinct. By using a microscope  Shinburn was able to tell what the combination numbers wore. With this mass oi  information Shinburn and his associates  plundered 1'jlly safes all over the country,  finally driving the Lily company out o!  business. Time and again tho man was  arrested and a number of convictions are  on record against him, but no prison was  strong enough to hold him for long. With  the police of the country after him, Shin  burn went to New York city and invester"  a large amount of money in tho stock exchange. He was warned to fly. as the authorities were closing in on him, but h(  calmly waited to see how his investment  turned out. A .sudden rise in the market  brought him a. fortune, and with over n  million dollars stolen money he sailed fo>  Belgium, with whicli country the Unitcc*  States had no extradition treaty at that  time, lie purchased the title and estate of  a. decrepit nobleman and blossomed I'ortl  as count Shinburn. lie spent thousands o:  dollars on entertainments, the mngnitiuh  of his operation:-- on the staggeret.  the native speculators and his enomioiu  winnings and losings were commented or.  all over I'Jiirope, V<w lifteeii years li = ��� kei-  up his gall, and then came a series of misfortunes, and the gi'out burglar was penniless (it'.'.-e more.  in:   !���'��� :>!{|'*!<.���*>:   cai-ts.

Some  of the big jobs Shinburn engaged in were  the robbery of the 'Lehigh & Wilkesbarrc  Coal Company's office at Whitehaven,  Pennsylvania, of $70,000 in cash by tunneling his way to the vault from an adjoining  building; tlio robbery of the Walpole, New  Hampshire, bank of $",0,000; the robbing of  tho Ocean bank on Greenwich street, New  York, of $1,000,000 in money and securities;  the robbery of the West Maryland bank of  $25,000, and a score of others. Shinburn has  shot a dozen men, being shot several times  himself, and lias broken jail fully a dozen  times. It was over five years ago that Shinburn, an old man then, ran up against  modern science. It was at the Middleburg.  New York, bank. He and his associates had  fought their way to the doors of the vault  and had blown away everything with nitroglycerine before they realized that they  had set. off a burglar alarm. Shinburn escaped on a hand-car, but was arrested  later in New York city.  ANOTHER EXAMPLE.  Chauncey Johnson, a man who stole over  $2,000,000 in his time, died penniless not  long ago while serving a term in prison for  stealing a pocketbook from a woman in  a New York bookstore. He took the pocket-  book because he was in genuine need. In  his time he was one of the most skilled  and successful thieves in the country, bilt  the field for his peculiar talents has disappeared. He stole $100,000 from the Hat-  tor's Bank at Bethel, Connecticut, and  $100,000 from the Marine National bank.  In 1S63 he walked into a Philadelphia bank  and with a long stel wire hooked $10,000 out  through tho paying teller's window right  under the official's nose. He took it in three  packages and was not detected until he  had the third package nearly out. In ISO"  he walked into August Belmont's offlce on  ' Wall and William streets. New York,  sauntered past clerks and office boys,  reached Mr. Belmont's desk and took $25,-  000 worth of government bonds from it,  put them in his pocket and walked out  again. A month after this he walked into  the ofllco of the Adams Express Company  in New York just as the cashier wa.s leaving his cage to go luncheon. Ho slid in tho  cage just as the latter went out, put on  the latter's oflice duster and hat, and while  pretending to work over some books rifled  tlie safe and cash drawer of some $10,000.  lie walked into a New York bank one  morning and notified the bookkeeper that  he had been discharged and that he (Johnson) had been employed in his place, while  tho indignant bookkeeper went to see the  president, about it, Johnson vamoosed with  $25,000. By a similar exhibition of nerve  Johnson robbed a number of hotel safes  while the clerks were on duty a few feet  away. But his face became known, and  it finally became a police custom to,arrest  him every time he appeared on the street.  Prisdit life had robbed him of his wonderful nerve, and he descended to the potty  crimes of the street, picking pockets,-etc.  An almost similar case is that of Edward  Rice, better known as Big Ed Rice. He  was last arrested for stealing a pocketbook  from a woman in a Twentythird street car  in New York. Once or twice before that he  had been accused of picking pockets, but  the crimes could not be fastened on him.  When convicted of tho street par robbery  Tiice broke down and confessed that he  had turned pickpocket because there was  nothing else for him to do. The only money  he had had for a year was what he could  get by pawning the scarfpins, watches,  and articles of jewelry he had stolen from  men and women in crowded streets. This  confession from a man who, with his associates, had stolen millions in his time,  was interesting. Next to Shinburn he was  regarded as the most dangerous bank robber In the country.  THEIR PALMY DAYS.  Around the United States today there are  probably a score of other crooks who  thrived and made fortunes by their nerve  and skill in the palmy days of the cracksman. But their day has passed and every  year one or two of them are picked up  for some trifling crime that fifteen or  twenty years ago they would scorned to  think of committing. Electricity and tho  modern safe have driven them to the wall.  sGradually-ithey^aredyIng-off7i-Jamcs=-Dun-i  lap, the great bank robber, and partner of  Bob Scott, who was pardoned by governor  Russell of Massachusetts in 1S90, was re-  cen'fly arrested in Chicago while polishing  a set of the portable burglar tools that  Max Shinburn invented. Bent with age  and his eighteen years of prison life,  coughing his life away with consumption,  this one-time brilliant, thief worked away  over his tools, which as he afterwards  confessed, he was going to use to break  into a candy store. Luckier, far luckier  than these men who have lived to taste  the bitter experiences of life, are the score  or more of men who used to be associated  with them years ago. but either died iu  prison, or, ns the saying goes. Willi their  hoots on, which generally means by the  bullet or the knife. Among the most notable nf the associates &f Shinburn. Johnson. Rice, Brady, and Dunlap, who died  before they had passed middle age, were  "Piano Charley" Bttllard, "Rig lke'-Marsh,  "Little Adam" Worth, Ned Lynns, Jim  McCoy, Jimmy Hope of Manhattan bank  robbery fame. "Wooster Tom" Ferris.  Rory Simms, Billy Maher, Bob Scott, and  Tom Renyon.  Truly, the old time bank breaker Is passing away.  Artistic Signs ia Fans.  That constant vigilance which is the price  of civic beauty is illustrated in Paris in a  movement to encourage the production or  artistic signs. Initiated by tho eminent  military painter Detaille, the idea has been  received favorably by the, civic authorities,  and there is every likelihood that some of  the best painters and sculptors in Paris  will lend their assistance to the work.  There has of late been a feeling that Paris  beautiful as it is in its proportions, has  become too uniform and monotonous. The  present prefect of the Seine has somewhat  relaxed the strict censorship of the facades of new houses, in the hope that the  city will regain the picturesque aspect  which it had before the Haussman dispensation. The movement for artistic signs  is inspired by this same spirit. M. Detaille  feels that if the tradesmen will return to  the, habit of putting out distinctive signs,  painted or sculptured, and the best artists'  will lend a hand, this will be the idea manner of bringing art to the people. This  idea is an admirable one, but its execution  will involve a curious paradox. To have  painted a signboard as many artists have  done, is to a great artist what to have been  a barefoot boy is to a multi-millionaire.  The Parisians may yet see great members  of the Institute repeating, out of sheer  public spirit, the tasks to which formerly  only sheer necessity could have driven  them.

Ask  the army women who aro in that alleged  quietly peaceful city why they go to sleep  dreaming of the possibility of their awakening only to be massacred; read the Manila dally papers, and you will believe, if  you accept these evidences, that the dove  of peace in the Philippines is not pure  while. The civil government needs stable  conditions for Its perpetuation!, and It  would certainly fall but for the military.  That we have this strong arm we are  duly thankful. We believe that there Is  no one now alive who will see the time  when it will not be needed, and if it is  withdrawn a serious lesson will be taught  Americans. The assassination of president  McKinley had a bad effect on the Filipino  mind. Many reason that there must have  been a cause for such an act. Most of  them also fail to realize why, under military control, taxation* was about 1 per cent,  while under civil government the tax is  3 per cent. Be that as lt may, the white  man's ��� distrust of the Filipino and the  Filipino's distrust of the white man seems  to constitute the situation here at present.  It is a mistake not to let the army ladles  back in the States know that many of the  officers would give much to have their families in the United States. This is the concensus of opinion of reliable people who  have been here for some time."  CLASSIFIED ADS.  ARTICLES FOR SALE.

AKKIVE  11 a. m.  11 a.m  near Curlew, AVashington, yesterday afternoon over a disputed crossing between  rival forces of tlie Clival Northern and  the Republic iV Grand Forks railway. The  sheriff of 1'Yrry county and several armed  deputies arc now on the scene with the object of preventing a breach of tho peace.  Two miles south of Curlew. IS miles from  the international boundary, the Republic  iVc Grand Forks road crosses tho Kettle  river on a high bridge, now in advanced  state of completion. Tho approaches on  either side consist of long irestles, the  ono on the east bank crossing the grades  of the Great Northern overhead al a high  elevallon.  The accounts of tlie affair are conflicting,  but from reliable iu forma lion it seems  thai ihe briiigeineii or the contractors,  Lane it Co., were engaged in constructing  the narrow gap overhead across the Great  Northern grade, when a gang of men in  the employ of the Clival Northern put in  an appearance, and. alter a war of words,  started to hitch their teams to the timbers  of the trestle, with the evident intention  of hauling il down.  The bi-idgeinen sent for reinforcements,  und after threatening tu roll the huge limbers down on top of tlio horses, compelled  the Invaders to withdraw. Several teams  in the meantime had tugged away at the  trestle work, but the timbers were found  to havo been practically undisturbed. Several  threats of reprisals were made.  Judge Palmer of Republic. "Washington,  who happened to be in Grand Forks spending Sunday, wa.s sent for hurriedly, and,  upon learning of the state of affairs, proceeded to Curlew. It is reported he subsequently issued an injunction, restraining  the Republic & Grand Forks railway from  continuing work.  ������S^-S���^���^'^^-^���.^���^^'a^^^���^^^^^���^^^^���^^'^���'^^'^^^ ���  _��* /^_i^*^* "^���^^���^^fr -^D^Qfr^Vfr *9'4w'^^"v''W'9'0 ^fc<MBj<l><gt>jMli_il^__ih ���"���^v 0$Br *4^t -*^^V .^Mfc ��<B^*^Mfc _B_*�� 0^Utm0tBm0���m^ <abiAjA<4l��W'V    I  GREAT NORTHERN SYSTEM.

McLaughlin, Wetmore, Wrasse, Fraser, Winter, Bunyan, Heaven and Croasdaile of the  club committee.  The Fletcher supporters had their first  rally last night in their committee room,  which ig the room lately occupied by The  Tribune Association in the Burns block.  Among those present were: Candidate  Fletcher, candidate Paterson, candidate  Wilson and. Messrs. Ashcroft Winerals,  Cameron, W. A. Macdonald, and Waterman. Candidate Wilson made a short  speech and candidate Fletcher a long one.  Meeting of Kirkpatrick's Supporters  Tho Kirkpatriek party had. a good  meeting in their committee rooms last  night. Speech-making di:l not occupy  any of the time. The voters' list was  carefully gone over, and there were few  names on it not known to those present.  Candidates for aldermen were discussed  and a full ticket will be in the field. It  was remarked that some people had a  strange antipathy to tickets when the  tickets were run by thair opponents.  This is notably true of most of the men  who are supporting candidate Fletcher.  They have always decried tickets; but,  (Strange to say, they have a straight  ticket in thig contest. In the West ward  the ticket " is: Harold Seious, Jon-  Hamilton, and John Elliot, ,'n the East  ward the ticket is: W. G. Gillett, John  Paterson, and W. J. Wilson. All have  served as aldermen, except John  Elliot, who was city solicitor during  1897 and a portion of 189S. The five  who have served in the council are  probably^running=on-theii-records,-and  Mr. Elliot expects to make one should  he succeed in his ambition.  Boer and British Losses  LONDON, January 7.���A published review of operations in South Africa during  the past year, based upon official reports,  gives an interesting comparison of Boer  and British losses. The review says that  the total reduction of the Boer forces in  killed, wounded, taken prisoners, and surrendered amounts to 18,320 men. Out of this  total only "9!)3 rifles were secured. British  columns are supposed to have taken all the  Boer artillery, amounting to 27 guns exclusive of the two captured by general Dewet at Zoefonteln. The capture of Boer  stock was enormous, considering the great  hauls made during the earlier years of the  war. During the last year the total of  29.SS2 horses were ccnturcd. while of other  stock, such as cattle. o:<��n, and sheep.  36,821 head were captured. The British  casualties from actual fighting amount to  only half of those sustained by the Boers,  namely 9113 men, of which 1153 were taken  prisoners and have since been released.  During the last year 4040 men died of disease, 15 officers and 342 men were accidentally killed, and 25.S00 men were invalided  home,  CITY AND DISTRICT.

MONTREAL, January 7.���A mild sensation was created today by the announcement that sister' Hilda of the  Order of the Sisters of St. Margaret,  would leave the order" to marry R. Montague Davey, the well-known member  of the choir of the church of the Advent. As Miss Hilda Cudlip she entered the sisterhood at Mother house iu  Boston coming from St. John, New  Brunswick, and was later transferred  to Montreal house, of which she has  been practically in charge for a year  past ,   Donation for Schools.  TORONTO, January 7.���-Sir William  McDonald of Montreal has made a further donation to the cause of education  in Ontario. He has offered the provincial government to provide for the establishment of graded schools in sections where several small school hou_es  are doing work which might better be  done by large graded schools. The  amount of the donation will depend  largely upon the requirements.  Accused of Selling Secrets.  VIENNA January 7.���The trial began behind closed doors here today of  captain Carina of the Austrian cavalry  on the charge of divulging military secrets to the French government, in payment for which he is alleged to have received ��2000. Captain Carnia pleaded  not guilty and said he had never possessed nor had access to the information  which he was accused of selling.  The Canal Debate Opened.  WASHINGTON, January 7.���There was  a fairly large attendance in the galleries  of the house today in anticipation of tlie  opening of the debate on the Nicaragua  Canal bill, which had been made a special order for today. By Ihe terms of the  order, the bill will continue before the  houso until disposed of. Without preliminary business the house went into committee of the whole for the consideration  of the canal bill, and Mr. Hepburn, the  chairman of the committee of interstate  and foreign commerce, which reported the  bill, took the floor to ..ipen the debate.  Referring to the efforts of the Panama  company to build a canal by private enterprise, he summed up their efforts as  follows: ���'The company raised $356,000,000  by the sale of $435,000,000 of bonds, and after  eight years the managers of the company  found themselves with the work less than  one-fourth completed. Penniless and bankrupt in money and' character the disaster  of this company." he said, "proved conclusively that the work should be undertaken by governmental agency."  A telegram just received this morning  states that- the total which the IMPERIAL  LIFE ASSURANCE COMPANY of Canada  set out to complete for the year 1901 has  been more than realized, viz: Four millions  of new business. This is the company's  greatest year's business. Mr. Day, the  company's Nelson manager, states that the  western business is considerably in excess  of any previous year, indicating the more  ���settled feeling and prosperous condition  of the province, as well as the Increasing  popularity of investing In a strong, substantial  financial  institution,  like  the Im-  -perial Life.

ANACONDA, Montana, January 7.���Something of the magnitude of the new smelting plant at Anaconda can be seen when  it is understod that to build the works it  took more than 10,000 carloads of material.  Of this 1000 carloads were brick. Over 25,.-  OOO.OUO feet of lumber were used in the  buildings and flume. This flume delivers  50,000 gallons of water every minute. Fifty  thousand yards of masonry were constructed in tho work and more than 250,000 yards  of earth were excavated for foundations.  The site occupied contains 300 acres, seven  acres of which aro covered by the concentrator building alone. The capacity of the  works is fully 5000 tons of ore each 21  hours. It took a force of 900 men employed  from June ISth to date to complete the  immense plant. This is certainly the largest  smelting plant in the world.  Bank Manager Dead.
