BOW STARTED IN THE CHAMBER  OF DEPUTIES WITH RESPECTABLE CASUALTIES.  BUENOS AYRES, January 10.���The rumors circulated here yesterday of a revolution in Paraguay turns out to be well  founded. The revolt, which broke out at  Asuntion, the capital, was caused by the  question of the presidential succession,  tlie term of president Aceval expiring November of this year. The revolutionary  junta was composed of general Caballero,  general Escodar, colonel J. A. Escurra, the  minister of war, senor Marro, a cabinet  minister, and senator Preilas. President  Aceval resigned the presidency and congress accepted his resignation. A collision  occurred in the chamber of deputies, during  which senator Facando Isfran, president  of the hygenic council was killed and general Caballero, senators Miguel and Cor-  balan and deputy Fernando Carrese were  severely wounded. The congress of Paraguay has placed the reins of government  ln the hands of the vice-president, senor  Hector Carvalla.

WASHINGTON, January 10.���The house  spent the day in considering the Hopkins  bill to create a permanent census bureau.  While the general sentiment was in favor  of a permanent bureau there was strong  opposition to the bill as drawn, on the  ground that it was not well matured.  There was also an overwhelming demand  for a provision to place the present employees of the census bureau under the  protection of the civil service law. The bill  was finally recommitted with instructions  to report back a bill containing a plan for  a detailed organization of a permanent  census bureau and to include also a provision to place the present employees under the civil service. The light to recommit  was made under the leadership of Mr.  Burkett of Nebraska, the new member of  the appropriation committee. A bill was  passed unanimously to give Mrs. McKinley  the free mailing privilege during the remainder of her life. The house then adjourned till Monday. '  Ashamed of Their Ancestry.  LEXINGTON, Kentucky, January: 10.���  The Lexington Chapter of the > United-  Daughters.of tho Confedaracy has sent a  written petition to Charles B. Scott, manager of the Lexington opera house, asking that the play "Uncle Tom's Cabin"  never again bo played .at the. opera house  here. They give, as reasons that'the best  citizens and old families in 'and. about  Lexington were once slave owners and  that the incidents of "Uncle Tom's Cabin  werenot typical of slave life In the south,  but of isolated cases, that the production  and Its advertisement with bloodhounds  *ind, pictures of an old negro in chains and  b slave owner with a whip in hand present a false history of the times to the  children of the city arid are in disrespect  to the southern gentlemen and good citizens and their families in this part, of the  country The petition is signed by four of  the most prominent women of the chapter  and is indorsed unanimously by the members.

STOLE GOVERNMENT BONDS  Amounting to $15,000.  BOSTON, January 10. ��� It became  known today that government bonds  valued at $15,000, stolen here last Monday, were obtained from N. W. Harris  & Co., bankers, on a forged certificate  on the National Shawmut bank. Other  bankers had been asked to buy $25,000  worth of bonds and to accept in payment a certified check on another firm.  Such a proceeding called for inquiry  and the result was that the check mentioned by the stranger in his telephonic  communication was declared to be bogus  by the firm which was supposed to have  given it.  It is understood, that Harris & Co.  were called upon Monday by a man giving his name as Bruce, who presented  a check, certified by the National Shawmut bank, asking that there be laid  aside for him quickly in bonds, $10,000  government four per cent coupons, due  in 1925, and $5000 Baltimore & Ohio  Southwestern 3 1-2 per cent bonds due  July 1st, 1925. The check was offered  and was accepted without question and  the bonds delivered.  At the bank both the; signature and  certification were declared to be forgeries and not clever ones at that. o  Marine  Matters.;    ���.'*���' ���-���-.  VICTORIA, January' 10.���The .collier  Wellington, which recently arrived at  Ladysmith to load coal "for San* jjrarif  Cisco, has been ordered to take her. cargo to Juneau to replace that lost on-the  collier Bristol. On her way north the  Wellington will stop at the scene of the  disaster and make a' search of the shore,  some still holding out hopes for those of  the crew of the lost collier who are  missing. At any rate the bodies might  be found.  The bark Santa Clara, which went on  Trial island during the storm of Christmas night, was floated this morning.  After having been lightened she floated  without any artificial aid.  Sergeant Murray, of the provincial  police, left tonight for the west coast,  having in charge Ole Carlson, the alleged whisky seller and opium smuggler,  who was captured after the wreck of his  sloop, in which he was taking a trunk  full of opium to the Sound. He will be  taken to each point at which it is believed he has been selling liquor and  ^tried-on^the^charge^so^that-if-convicted  his sentence will be a long one.  In a letter to the press, Mr. Daykin,  the lighthouse keeper at Carmanah  Point, says: ..The schooner sighted off  Bonilla Point bottom up was one of  about 400 tons. He adds, *'I sighted a  vessel, bottom up, off Bonilla Point. 1  immediately sent my boys up to see if  she could be identified, but so far nothing has come ashore. She held in one  position, either by her anchor or broken  masts, until 2 a. m. when she blew up.  I think she blew her stern out, as it was  out of water about 10 feet and her bow  well under. She then sank and lies a  short distance east of where the Puritan  was lost.       Indians on the Warpath.  MILES CITY, Montana, January 10.���  Fort Keough yesterday received a telegram from Forsyth, asking that soldiers  be immediately dispatched to the Lame  Deer Indian agency. Word has arrived  from the agency that trouble was brewing and that an outbreak of Cheynnes  was imminent if it had not already occurred. Lieutenant Chapman of the post  stated that the request for troops had  been communicated to department headquarters, and that soldiers were making  preparations for immediate departure on  the receipt of orders. A. Beatty, a prom-  inent'eitizen of Ashland, near the Lame  Deer agency, said that the disturbance  originated by an Indian named White  being sent for by the agent in charge.  The Indian refused to obey the summons  and an Indian posse was dispatched  to bring him in. White opened fire upon  the appearance of the posse, Killing one  of the Indian policemen. The warring  Indian then turned upon his own wife  and daughter, killing them both, and  finally shot himself, dying instantly.  Election Mud Throwing.  VANCOUVER, January 10.���[Special  to The Tribune. 1���The result of the  election in favor of alderman Neelands  for mayor was the biggest surprise of  the kind in the municipal history of the  city. Mayor Townley, this morning,  gave out a statement congratulating the  new mayor and agreeing to support him  in every way. He also declared his in-  digination at those persons who threw  mud over Neelands during last night's  procession.  Paul Johnson, who is admitted to be  one of the best practical smelting men  in British Columbia, was in Nelson yesterday. Interviewed by The Tribune on  the mining and smelting situation in  Boundary district, Mr. Johnson said:  "The ores of the Boundary camps are  low grade, carrying values in gold and  copper. The drop of five cents in the  price of copper means a loss to the mine  owners of. one dollar a ton for every  unit of copper, that is, if the ore carries  one per cent copper the loss is ?I a ton;  if two per cent, the loss is $2 a ton, and  so on. The price of copper today is  lower than normal, and, in my opinion,  will be higher before long; but conditions as they exist must be considered,  not conditions that may exist at some  time in the future. The low-grade ore  of the Boundary can be worked at a  profit only by handling it in large quantities. We are now handling at the  British Columbia Copper Company's  plant near Greenwood an average of 420  tons a day in one furnace, more than is  handled in one furnace anywnere in the  world; but we must handle at least  treble that quantity, in order to make  a fair return on the capital invested."  Asked as to the cost of mining and  smelting Boundary ores, Mr. Johnson  said:  "We hope to make reductions in the  cost of mining and smelting our ores, so  that the total cost will not be in excess  of $2.25 a ton. This low cost will  be brought about by concessions  made us by ��� the Canadian Pacific railway in freight rates on handling our ore from the mines to the .smelter and coal and coke from the Crow's  Nest mines and coke ovens. .Future reductions in cost will be brought about  by the besmerizing of our matte at  the Granby works at Grand Forks. By  treating pur matte at Grand Forks, instead of shipping it to Newark, New  Jersey, we will save $2000 a month.  The cuts we have already obtained  in freight rates and prices of coke  means $100 a day to us now, and.you will  readily, see what it * would -mean if we  ..were treating treble- thes.quantity .:W(e:  "are iow treating." ��� 7 ----*���--i:-^*>T'?i���  What is the.greatest cost in smelting  the Boundary ores, Was the next question asked Mr. Johnson, and he replied:  "Fuel is 65 per ont of the total cost  of smelting, and ij is very important  that we have a supply that we can depend, on. At presat, we are entirely  dependent for our fuel supply on the  Crow's Nest coal macs and on the Canadian Pacific railwjyl The; mines furnish the coke and ��- railway does t&e  hauling. If through any cause the supply of coke was diyjrtkd, we would have  to close down our smelter, and if the  smelter was clos*d .down our mines  would also be close! down, for no mine  or smelter has uriiniited ore-bin capacity. While it is tiue that a coke con'7  taining a high perciritage. of ash can be  used in smelting rapper ores; it is also  very important thai _u,el of 'a-good grade  is obtained. The inelters of the Boundary, handling as'they; do copper ores  exclusively, can utilize a poorer quality  of coke to better aivahtageithan smelters that treat .sil^ertfrlead; 'ores exclusively.* We have no greati-complaint to  make now on the/quality of the coke  supplied us. We can get along wijh the  quality if we are only, assured of a constant supply." -',   *l.  - ;.'.'     -'...  What is the comparative cost of labor  and fuel in smelting?A  , "Roughly speaking,'[the smelter: of the  B. C. Copper Com^arty at Greenwood  pays out $7500 a. xapnth in wages for  superintendence an! labor and $12,000  a month for fuel.'Jo you will see that  any reduction in wages that could possibly be made would; have little bearing  on the situation. as,it exists. A 10  per cent cut would flower; wages below  the rates paid in othir >melting_centers,  and we would be,unable to}^eep good  men. Even a 10 per cent' cut. in the  price of fuel would japan much to the  smelting industry as it'is today, and you  can readily see the great saving it would  be were we in apposition to handle  1200 tons of Ore .a'Bay. We: are now  handling 420 tons and! the 10 per cent  reduction oh fuel would be a saving of  $1200 a month or $-4,400 a year. Multiply that by three and you have $43,200 a  year, which-is a 4'per- Cent dividend  for a company whose capital is $1,000,-  000."    ���";���;���>��� ' :r "  Then you. consider the-present cost of  ���labor as normal, arid.th'at future reduc-  -tlons invthe cost- of suj^lting -arerdepen--  dent almost entirely on reductions in  the cost of fuel?  "That is about the way to size up the  situation. While it. is possible that new  appliances may be introduced to lessen  the cost of both mining and smelting,  yet I believe the plant which I constructed for the B. C. Copper Company  is one of tbe most complete now in operation, and to give you an idea as to  what we are doing as compared with  what is done at smelters in Colorado:  In Colorado it is estimated that a ton  and a half of ore is handled per man per  shift. We have 28 men at our furnace  and we handled 422 tons a day on an  average during the month of December,  or 15 per day per man."  How does the present price of copper  compare with the prices that have ruled  in former years?  "The price today for Lake is $12.25.  During 1900 it averaged $16.-2, and 1899  the average was $17.61, arid in 1898  $12.03. In 1897 $11.29 was the average  and in 1896 $10.88. The price for Lake  is given, as that grade, is the one on  which quotations are based, other grades  being always a shade lower.- In 1867 the  price averaged $24127, and it dropped to  : $20.74 in: 1870. In 1872.it averaged $31.38,  but got down to $20.70 in 1876, $17.90 in  1877,-and $15.84. in 1878. In 1879 the  price was $16.90, in 1880 $18.71, and for  the next two years the price averaged  $17.87 and $17.58. In 1883 the price dropped to $15. In 1884 it was $52.52, and  the next year it was $11.16.' In 1886 it  was $11.25, in 1887 $12.08, and in 1888 it  had climbed up to $14.87, but the next  year it dropped to $12.31. In 1890 $14.73  was the average, and in 18D1 $13.14, in  .1892 $11.50, in 1893 $10.75, and in 1894 it  only averaged $9.55. In 18.95 the price  was $10.76. These figures show that the  price of copper has had a wide range in  35 years, and the average is not far  from the price ruling in New York yesterday. T.he United State*-- produces  more than half of the copper production  in the world, last year its total being  272,536 meteric tons as agaiiBt 492,625  tons as the world's total."  How low, in your opinion, could the  price of copper, go before it would reach  the cost of production?  "The cost varies.-in different mines  and in different districts. I believe .we.  can produce copper jn the Boundary at  ia-coct-6f>7-1-2 cents apoundi"- v r -  'Mr. Johnson was in Nelson attending  a; conference of mine managers, arid returned to Greenwood this inorning.  NO  STARTLING INCIDENTS  Both Sides at Work.  Things political jogged along yesterday without startling incidents.  Charles Augustus Waterman was seen  talking to John Houston during the afternoon, and when he appeared in the  Fletcher committee room in ihe evening he was ordered to sit on '.he mourner's bench by Deacon Cameron. The  Fletcher workers are working for  Fletcher and no one else on the ticket  They apparently do not-care for any of  Jthe_canjlidat^^foLald^r5ie.n.JWith them  it is, trade everybody and promise anything for a vote for Fletchsr. On the  Kirkpatriek side, everybody is working  hard for Kirkpatriek and the candidates  for aldermen who are supporting him.  "No trading and no promises" is the invariable answer to all approaches made  to them by Fletcher's followers.  At this writing, it looks like a clean  sweep for the Kirkpatriek side. The result in Vancouver has set people to  thinking. People who know the conditions that exist in Vancouver say they  are very similar to those rhat exist in  Nelson. Townley was a wide-open  mayor, as Fletcher is, and (he result  was that people who favored liberty but  not license turned Townley down, just  as they will turn Fletcher down in Nelson on Thursday. Fletcher has told the  "gang" that if he is uiected he will  make Nelson a wide-open town, and the  "gang" are working for him like Trojans. On the other hand, the people  who believe that public gamDling is an  evil will, support Kirkpatriek, knowing  full well that while he is ,'iberal in his  views on such questions, he will not, if  elected, tolerate for an instant public  gambling or anything that (macks of a  wide-open town.  German Tariff Bill Doomed*  PEKIN, January 10.���The impression  is gathering force among the supporters  of the tariff bill in the reichstag, and  amounting almost to a certainty, that  the bill cannot be passed in its present  forni even if the midnight grain duties  be stricken out, and that the government may have to drop the measure altogether, although this, of course, would  only be done by long sequestration of  the bill with the committee, where it  now rests. The opposition to the tariif  bill is taking the form of a proposal  that a commission shall be appointed  to investigate German agriculture and  to determine whether distress really exists.    Meeting Behind Closed Doors.  NEW YORK, January 10.���Receiver  John F. Shanley, John M. Mack and  Henry Tatnall of the Asphalt Company  of America, and the National Asphalt  Company had their second meeting today in this city. Several others were  present, including Arthur Sewail.    The  meeting was held behind closed doors  and none of those present were- inclined  to discuss the proceedings. It was admitted, however, that the meeting was  only a preliminary one and, that the  auditors had not yet reported on the  condition of the subsidary .companies,  a matter of first importance in untangling the affairs of the parent companies.  It is stated that as a consequence of the  delay, of the auditors report no definite  plan of proceedure had been decided  upon.  Brutal Murderer Escapes.  UNIONTOWN, Pennsylvania, January  10.���A cold blooded murder vas committed at the new Sharon Steel Company's mine, 12 miles west of here this  afternoon, when Henry Grant almost instantly killed William Jenkins. Jenkins  was shaft boy for the gang sinking the  shaft and Grant had been in charge of  the drilling machines. He proved unsuitable and was reduced to helper,  while Jenkins put his brother in Grant's  place. Grant became jealous and just  as the men quit work this evening, Grant  slipped up behind Jenkins, -olunged a big  knife through his body and ran, escaping in the confusion.  Anti-Pass Agreement Annulled.  CHICAGO, January 10.���So far as the  territory of the Central Passenger Association is concerned, the anti-pass  agreement has apparently oeen broken  past all mending, for another 32 months  at least. Circulars were received in  Chicago, which were issued by the Pennsylvania and Lake Shore railways, announcing that for the year 1901, exchange passes would be given and inviting the same. Similar notices are being issued by all the lines.  French Demands on China.  PEKIN, January 10.���The "trench  minister M. Beau, refuses to present his  credentials until China fulfills certain  demands of the French government.  The joint audience of France and new  Chinese ministers, which has been arranged has been postponed because of  M. Beau's action. His colleagues are  discussing whether to support him or  not. A repetition of the Turkish incident is considered possible.  Dam Does Damage.  VANCOUVER, January 10.���[Special  to The Tribune.]���Seymoud creek dam  broke yesterday and a wall of water several feet high swept across the delta at  the mouth of the river. A residence, a  large barn and a number of cattle were  carried away, and only a bed of rocks  is now left ot the farm.  An Immense Tailshaft.  VANCOUVER, January 10.���[Special  to The Tribune.]���An immense tailshaft  for the steamer Victoria, measuring 20  feet long and 14 inches in diameter,  passed through here today and will be  put in place tomorrow.  PEACE   RUMORS   REVIVED  No "Any Fair Offer" Terms.  AMSTERDAM, January 10.���The Boer  delegates in Holland evidently anticipate that some kind of pease overtures  will shortly be forthcomi.ig, though  they are reticent as to their reasons for  this belief. They maintain, however,  that the demand for an unconditional  surrender must be abandoned. It is  privately admitted that one of the delegates will reject' what they call "any  fair offer of terms."  Stowed Away for Seven Days.  NEW YORK, January 10.���The North  German Lloyd steamer Kaiserin Maria  Theresa arrived here today from Bremen, Southampton and Cherbourg, and  reports an exceptionally stormy passage.  The wirids were from the northwest and  southwest, with heavy gales, snow and  hail. Sometimes the gale would increase  to hurricane force, with violent gusts,  which, with the enormous sea, would  stagger the steamer. The captain said  he was obliged to proceed at reduced  speed in order to ease the steamer. On  the seventh day two stowaways crawled  out on the deck in an almost exhausted  condition. They had stowad away in  the hold and after their provisions were  gone, they were driven by hunger to the  deck. They will be turned over to the  immigration authorities.  To Honolulu by November.  WASHINGTON, January 10. ��� The  house committee on commerce took up  the subject of the Pacific cable today.  The main question is whether the cable  shall be constructed by the povernment  or by private parties. George G. Ward,  vice-president of the Commercial Pacific  Cable Company, stated that contracts  had been made for completing a cable  to Honolulu by November next and the  company intendedrjto extend the cable  to Manila within twor-years, from next  November. Half .tfc'&S-cost is between  $20,000,000 and $25,000,000. Mr. Ward  placed the expected rate to Manila at $1  and Honolulu at 35 cents per word. The  hearing will continue tomorrow.  Starving the Insurgents.  SAN FRANCISCO, Jar.'iary 10.���General Funston, c~----'-~ i;... t night of the  progress of the war in the Philippines  said, "there is little that can be added  to the news that has been sent out from  Manila by telegraph. In Batangas, our  troops are making good progress and  in Leyte the situation is very promising. Samar is a puzzle. The island is  being raked, from side to side, by columns of scouts but it is very difficult  to locate the insurgents. The navy  blockade is very effective, however, and  we may be able to starve the insurgents  out and compel a surrender of the armed  forces there, which will number about  3500 men, in a few months. The army  and navy are co-operating in an effort  to induce rebels to come and give up  their arms and good results may be looked for soon.  "The work of the civil commission is  progressing satisfactorily, but military  rule must be preserved in these provinces where stubborn and influental  leaders hold the ignorant arid bloodthirsty natives in the palm of their  hands and mould their opinions at will."  A Dividend Declared  NEW YORK, January 10.���The board  of managers of the Delaware & Hudson  Company has declared the regular dividend of 7 per cent for. the year 1902,  payable in four quarterly installments.  Death of a Nonagenarian.  KINGSTON, Ontario, January 10.���  Parker Allen, the oldest descendent of  a United Empire Loyalist settling in  Adolphustown died today aged ninety  years.  ENJOYABLE   PERFORMANCE  Nelson Amateurs in Vaudeville.  oThe vaudeville performance given in  the opera house last evening by the  Nelson amateurs drew a crowded house.  That the program was appreciated was  attested by the- frequent encores _e-  manded, and when the national anthem  brought the entertainment to a close  every one present agreed that it was  fully up to the advertisement���three  hours good fun. The program opened  with Toreador, from the opera Carmen,  in which Robert Thomson'- voice was  heard to great advantage. Mr. Thompson  is coming on well and when he acquires  an easy stage presence will be hard to  -beat in the ranks of amateurs.  The second number on the program  was the Lilliputian song and dance  artists, little Flossie Johnstone and  master Harold Cameron, introducing  the song "Bill and Mugs" from the Bells  of New York.;; The little **'olks were  trained well by Herr Steiner and their  performance showed that thiy were apt  pupils.  The sextette,'"Tell Me Pretty Maidens" from Florodbra, proved a very attractive feature,; the performers being  Mesdames - Macdonald, McLeod and  Parry, and Messrs. Parry, Cri-kmay and  Sherwood. The ladies were charming  in their; white frocks and Gainsborough  hats ��� and the gentlemen were natty in  their Prince Alberts arid silk tiles.  - Then followed the -only wait in the  performance. -E.Criddle was eh for his  coster songs but he was not ready and  T. J. McAstocker was forced to go on  with his lightning baton.swinging.  The scene Celestial: was a very happv  creation both from a spectacular and musical standpoint." George Kydd's pure tenor  was heard to advantage m the songs Tri-  .umph ��� and Palms, In which he was ably  supported by a quartette composed of  Messrs. Crickmay, Day, Sherwood and  Parry.  The Purity Brigade made quite a hit. It  was something in the nature of a Salvation Army production, cue ladles���Mesdames Davys, Armstrong, Goepel. Heath-  cote and Macdonald appearing in whitc-  costumes with red trimmings. The solo in  tho piece fell to Mrs. Macdonald, and wa.s  rendered in an excellent manner.  The performance was rounded out with  several of the sweetest songs in the Bohemian Girl. Robert Thompson sang the  "Heart Bowed Down: Mrs. Parry, "T Dremt  I Dwelt In Marble Halls," and It. W. Day.

PARIS, January 10.���Frenchmen having  claims against Venezuela are urging their  government to adopt coercive meiisures.  Tho government, however, Is undecided  whether to do so or not. Nevertheless, In  view of the possibility of such action it  has Informally sounded Washington on Unfeeling ot tho United States in the matter.  It can be positively said that whatever action France may take will be absolutely  Independent of that of Germany, wit 11  which country there will be no co-operation. In any case the action of France will  be non-political, and will be conllned to obtaining satisfaction for material injury to  the interests of French citizens.

BERLIN, January 10.���The richest man in  Germany is Herr Krupp. According to the  income tax returns he has an income ot  between twenty and thirty million marks  a year. No one approaches him in wealth.  He stands ln a class alone and there are  half a dozen classes between Herr Krupp  and tho next richest man In Germany. The  Identity of tho second richest man in the  empire, who has an Income of between five  and six million marks. Is not quite clear,  although It Is supposed to be the coal  master, Herr Von Thlels WInckler.  Mine Still Caving in  NEGAUNEE. Michigan, January 10.���  The surface of the Negaunec mine is still  caving ln, going direct to the drift where  the bodies of the workmen arc covered.  The blacksmith shop, west of the opening,  went down late last night, and from present Indications 'the dryhouse west of the  opening will go down. It Is now problematical when the bodies of tho burled miners  will bo recovered, as with water pouring  ln and the surface giving way, the work  cannot bo carried on with any degree of  satoty.  CHANGE OF TONE  GERMANS DID NOT MEAN  TO GIVE OFFENCE.  VON   BUELOW   GIVES   WABNING  THAT CHAMBERLAIN MUST  NOT BE ABUSED.  BERLIN, January 10.���During the debate  on the estimates in the reichstag Herr Bas-  serman declared today that the National  Liberal party would oppose any suggestion  of a loan of 35,000,000 marks to cover the  deficit. Financial reform was necessary and  the National Liberals were not averse to  direct imperial taxation. The chancellor,  count Von Buelow, making a general reply  to the preceding speakers, took occasion to  pour oil on the recently troubled British  waters. He spoke sharply against the abuse  of Mr. Chamberlain, indulged in by several  speakers, since the opening of the debate  as against the aspersions cast on the honor  of the British army, to which the chancellor paid a warm tribute.  Unequalled in America.  SAN FRANCISCO, January 10.���Rev.  A. L. Hazelett, a Methodist Episcopal  preacher of Colorado City, has returned  from the Philippines. He went to the  Philippines at the request of general  MacArthur, and under the authority of -  the secretary of war to study and report upon the moral conditions of the  islands, particularly at Manila. His report is that he found a gratifying condition of affairs in the metropolis of the  Philippines.  "Manila is the best governed city I  have ever seen," said Rev. Hazelett, "and  I don't believe its equal in this respect  exists in the United States today. Since  the American occupaiton the arrests for ���  drunknness have rapidly decreased and  for the good reason that the drunkenness has been discouraged by-the authorities in the right manner. It was  formerly said that there were 400 saloons on the Escolta, but now not one is  to be found there.- The total number of  saloons in the city is one hundred and  nine and they are goverened in;a strict  manner."  A Twentieth. Century Hero.  NEW YORK, January 10.���The surgeons at Bellevue hospital said today  that Thomas P. Murphy, whose leg was  amputated last, night, as a result of injuries received in "Wednesday's tunnel accident, had rallied from the operation  arid had good chances of recovery. Murphy's nerve in telling the rescuers not  to release him from the wreck, if so doing would endanger others, attracted  much attention to him and he has been,  in a sense, one of the most remarkable  patients Bellevue has ever seen. His  cheerfulness, under the terrible injuries  he received, astounded every one at the  hospital. Many messages of inquiry  concerning him were received yesterday  and today, and members of his family  and a committee of the Knights of Columbus remained all night at the hospital to hear how he was progressing.  France Asks $-0,000,000.  WASHINGTON, January 10.���Admiral Walker, chairman of the isthmian,  canal commission, stated today that he  had received a cable from the officers  of th.

Lampre, the secretary general  of the company, who is in Washington,  stated that the cablegram was explicit  and covered all the property owned by  his company in Panama, and that a copy  of the cablegram had been filed with the  American ambassador in Paris. Admiral Walker said that he would call the  members of the isthmian canal commission together as soon as possible and  lay the matter before them, when a report will be made to the president  through the secretary of state.

What the people expect  from those they elect to office is capable and  faithful  service.    They expect  a  mayor to be  not  only  capable, .but  honest.   He must have business capacity  and unquestioned integrity. Fair-mlndod  people do not care whether their ollicials  aro Masons   or Oddfellows   or   Eagles;  thoy do not care whether they are Presbyterians or Catholics or Baptists; they  do not care whether they visit or speak  to John Brown or John Smith.

The Neepawa as a Shipper.  The holders of the lease and bond on  the Neepawa are convinced that they  have a'good thing in their Ten-mile  property. It is only about a month  since' F. W. Polehampton commenced  work under his bond, but the results  have been marvelous. They may be  judged from the fact that manager  Sandiford stated Tuesday that he would  ship four cars of ore this month, and  that by the time the bond was up, the  property would have paid, for itself out  of the ore to be shipped. The smelters  have promised a rate of $7 on the ore'.  Sixty-five feet have been driven on the  ore chute where first encoiintered in the  No. 2 workings, opening/up a stope of  ore 2 1-2 feet wide, which will ship at  not less than 80. ounces. In the face of  the drift is 7 feet of mixed ore, which  is a most encouraging exposure. Jusf  above the Enterprise- wagon road is  another opening, with 6 feet of miner-*-  alized matter in sight. Ten men are  working in three shifts, funning in 80  feet of a crosscut, so as - to reach the1  main drift without having to pass ovei*  the dangerous slide, last week's expe^  riences haying proven that way too per-j  ilous. The crosscut will be finished next  week and then attention will be paid  to shipping.       r~ -.__-____,-  An important discovery has been  made on the Neepawa, a -_econd vein  having been .cut 100 feet-to the east of  and paralleling the. main vein. It is 8  feet in width and carries surface, values  of $13.20 in gold-,n-14 ounces silver and  3 per cent copper. The discovery  greatly enhances the value of the property. The-Noepawa bond covers all the  ground to the Enterprise, and it is the  intention to float a company on the  London market to handle the. combined  claims.  The interview with Paul Johnson  printed in The Tribune today shows  clearly how necessary cheap fuel is to  the smelting industry of British Columbia. Cripple the smelting industry, and  the output of our mines would be reduced 50 per cent. Fuel is 65 per cent  of the cost of smelting our low-grade  copper-gold ores, and copper-gold ores  is what keeps alive the city of Rossland  and the entire Boundary country. Both  the Dominion and the provincial governments should do everything possible  to safeguard our smelting interests, and  no one thing is so important to these  interests as a fuel supply.  High Grade Slocan Ore.  N. F. McNaught of Silverton has received his returns from the last shipment of ore from the Hampton, the  figures being remarkably high. Four  tons of the lot yielded 720 1-2 ounces to  the ton and the balance 346 ounces. For  the three small shipments made by the  Hampton, last summer the average re-:  turns were 700 ounces 'per ton, making  the banner record "for the division. The  Hampton not only paid for its' new  buildings and development last summer,  but gave a dividend - besides from - its  shipments.  Early, spring will witness the resumption of operations, with a large force of  men, at the Viking-Phoenix group, on-  Erin mountain to the east nf the city J  During. the winter the company com-1  posed mainly of Portland men, has perfected its organization and has got  things in shape for working the mine.  Charles A. Sandiford, son !of W. H.  Sandiford, of the Bosun, New Denver,  will have the superintendency of the  Viking when it starts up.���-The Slocan  Drill.  The Fletcher partisians are trying to  make it appear that any candidate for  oflice who has the friendship or support  uf John Houston is of necessity dominated by him. The people of Nelson  had confidence enough in John Houston J  to make him mayor three terms, and  The Bosun's Becord.  Of the English companies operating  in Kootenay only two paid dividends,  last year. One was the Bosun, New Denver, and the other was the Ymir at  Ymir. The former property has had  phenominal success. An average of 100  tons a month has been the record of the  mine, affording sufficient funds to cover  all development, erect blink house, offices, blacksmith shop and ore houses at  a general cost of $25,000, and also to pay  the shareholders 5 per cent of a profit  for the year just, closed. Last month  180 tons of ore was shipped, being the  highest   record   yet   reached.     Twenty  To Prosecute Smugglers.  WASHINGTON, January 9.-General H.  L.

Legislation Against Long Skirts.  The health commissioners of two widely  ��� separated towns almost simultaneously  presented ordinances to tho common coun-  ��� cils of their towns requiring women to  wear skirts at least three inches from thf  : ground. Both of them advanced the argument that if men were to be lined for spit-  : ting in street cars, women ought to be finer  "-for dragging the filth'of the streets around  -town and into their homes. Both .the.

The Inventions of the Tear-  The achievements of Mr. Marconi with  "his -wireless telegraphy are the wonder oi  the world, but apparently the confusion o!  a mitn'b.er".of other scientists, some of their  his friends, some his jealous rivals. We d<  not find all these agreeing as to the credibility of the foat by -which tho wireler.;-  communication between the two world?  is said to have been accomplished. No on-  questions Mr. Marconi's good faith in th'  matter, but certain scientific minds arnot so receptive of his facts as to be convinced that the inventor is not deceived  It is reassuring, however, to find one of the  cable companies trying to oust Mr. Marconi from his experimental station because  Theatre-Goers' Manual.  A competent authority might compile a  very useful little volume to be called "A  Manual of Etiquette for Theater Goers."  There is no prospect that it would be found  in the lists of "best selling books," but it  would enjoy a certain appreciation and  could be made much more specific than a  manual on "How to Make Love." It might  awaken in some people a half sense of  consideration for others. It should be presented to the young lady with the compilers compliments who makes a practice of-  eating candy at a performance. She has  a habit of rummaging for a choice morsel  at the most tense moments of a play, setting on edge the nerves of a rapt author  by the crackling of the'paper that lines the  bon bon box. A copy should be given to the  foreigner who insists in translating into  his native tongue the lines of the piece  as they are delivered by the actors. Another nuisance is the man who has had just  enough with his dinner to inspire him  with the hospitable aim of taking his  share in the dialogue on the stage. The  young lady who has already.seen the play,  and who delights in anticipating every situation by announcing it to her escort and  the immediate neighbors should also be  favored with a copy. The man who has  been going to theater since his nursing  days, and knows all about acting and actors, frequently makes himself obnoxious  by the flow of audible comment. The marl  and women who come in late, walk on your  toes and block the view of the stage at the  vital juncture, should receive copies of the  "Manual of Etiquette for Theater Goers."  Upon reflection, it appears that, as most  of the copies of this worthy book would be  given away, perhaps it were more prudent  to print the most needful instructions in  programs.  A Hundred Years Hence.  The -twentieth century is not closing  without issues to be settled, says John  Bates Clark in the January Atlantic. You  know what foreign relations now mean;  not a struggle to keep from fighting, but  an effort lo adjust trade connections and  other vast and involved interests. The intimacy in which nations live, while it guarantees peace, makes work for International  courts. In individual morality we .are not  yet at the portal of the milennium; for  prosperity has brought its sore temptations. Here, indeed our gains seem to be  in some danger, and in this connection the  strongest effort is needed in order to save  them. A certain manly quality in our people  gives the.assurance that we have the material out of which a millenium may grow.  Fraternity abounds where once it was rare.  We can look with toleration on our new  billionaires, knowing, as we do, how little  the excess of their fortunes really does  for them. In the retrospect it seems to me  that the ship that carries our fortunes  had once been half dismasted by storms,  but had out ridden them and were well  on its way to port. Mor�� wealth, strength,  and virtue are yet to be attained, and in  the- struggles against _eyil_we_ shall gain  moral stamina. There are contests enough  still in progress to give virility to the popular character. You have work before you,  children of the twenty-first century; but  my hope is that the area of the greatest  danger has passed and that your tasks will  be lighter than ours have been, and your  strength stronger .  How Invention Promotes Peace  Anything that advances the cause of  peace among men is to be welcomed; and  nothing of late has done so much to promote this good cause ns the shattering of  military ideals and traditions by the hand  of the inventor. Liberty, industry and civilization have suffered in untold measure for  half a century past by reason of the arrogance and doiniimiiec of professional  militarism in Europe. But now, in the  opening of this new century, it has dawned  'upon the minds of statesmen and ordinary  citizens alike that militarism as a system is  absolutely doomed. From this point of view  the continuance of the South African war  with all Its misery and shame, has been  of immense value to the world as an object lesson. It has demonstrated the ineffectiveness of regular warfare under the  new conditions made possible by such inventions as the long range rifle, with  smokeless high explosives. The Boers  themselves, though their leaders had some  consciousness of their defensive strength,  but no really intelligent idea of the course  that events were destined to take. If they  had known, at the beginning what they now  know, they "would have greatly prolonged  the war, ari*t-!"probably wore England out  In the end, by a careful avoidance of open  actions and by the adoption of guerrila  methods long before. they had exhausted  their supplies and munitions and had allowed bodies of their best men to be captured.  World's Centenarians.  It is not surprising that more people live  to be over 100 years old in warm climates  than in the higher latitudes. The German  empire, with 55,000,000 inhabitants, has 77S  centenarians. France .with 40,000,000, has  213. England has only I'd. and Scotland 4G.  Sweden has 10, Norway 101, and Switzerland  has none. Servia, with a. population of 2,-  250,000, has 575 people over 100 years old.-  It is claimed that the oldest living person,  one I initio Cotrim, living at Rio de Janiero.  is 1B0 years old.-.  The Biggest Bags  The biggest authenticated bag secured at  ono shot, of which I have ever heard, consisted of one rabbit (the cause of the shot)  ono beater, one onlooker (a French cook),  a boy, and a dog.

Curious circumstances  sometimes occur out shooting. A friend  walking in line down a turnip field saw  a startled hare running straight and fast  toward him up a furrow. He stood still,  waiting for her; to turn, but the hare, with  its peculiar vision, did not see htm and  ran head plump against his shin, killing  herself and very seriously bruising his shin.  American Locomotives the Best  American locomotives, running on American rails, now whistle past the Pyramids  and across the long Siberian steppes. They  'carry the Hlndos from all parts of their  empire to the sacred waters of the Gang5s.  Three years ago there was but one American locomotive in the United Kingdom;  today there is not a road of importance  there on which trains are not being pulled  by American engines. The American, locomotive has successfully invaded Prance,  The Manchurian railway, which is the  real beginning the Orieiual railway building, bought all its rails and rolling stock  in the United States.
