 ItcUum  ESABLISHED  1892  SATURDAY  MORNING,  JANUARY  18,   1902  DAILY EDITION  MUST HAVE FUEL  FEDERAL  CABINET  MUST  FACE THE ISSUE.  MININO  AND SMELTING INDUSTRY IS DEPENDENT UPON  CROW S NEST COAL.  ���   VICTORIA,   January   17.���The   daily  Province of Vancouver, the leading Liberal paper   of   British   Columbia, publishes a long- special from its correspondent at Fort Steele today, in the course  of which it says:   "As every one knows,  East   Kootenay   contains   some  of the  richest silver-lead deposits on this con  tinent, perhaps in the world.   The task  of developing these properties has been  beset with many difficulties. Labor troubles at one time tied up the district, but  peace now reigns and tnough wages are  high, it is thought more economical to  pay big wages than to precipitate fresh  strikes.   The price  of  lead  ore in  the  United States is so much greater than  the price in eastern Canada, China, or  the United Kingdom, and that market  is so much nearer the base of operations  here, that with free trade between Canada and the United States every pound  of lead produced in the Kootenays would  go across the line and yield a far higher  profit to the mine owner than he can  possibly get today  in those lower and  more   distant   markets.    Unfortunately  congress has levied a duty of 1 1-2 cents  per pound on lead in ore, with a duty of  2,1-8 cents per pound on pig lead. Thus  our product is virtually excluded from  its nearest and best place of sale, a state  of things  which  reduces  the  value of  every silver lead mine in the country,  as compared with what its value would  be if it were on the American side, at  least,to the extent of $10 per ton of ore.  Under   the    Dingley    tariff,    American  smelters are at liberty to smelt Canadian  ores in bond, on condition that they export 90.per cent of the resulting lead.  For some time past, however, the smelting trust  in the United  States  has refused to buy Canadian ore, simply because it is unable to control the output  of lead in the   United   States   and   has  more on its hands than it can get rid of  without bringing about a reduction of  price, namely $3.50 per .100 pounds, which  it pays for the product of American ores.  Our Canadian ores have therefore to be  smelted at Nelson and Trail, or at Everett,  Washington,  and  San Francisco,  these two American smelters being the  only ones within reach that have not  been absorbed   by   the  smelting  trust.  Hitherto, for this reason, the smelting  charge, or as it is called, the cost of  freight and treatment paid by the Kootenay mine owners, has been somewhat  high, but was   reduced   the   other   day  from $19 to $15 per ton.   This reduction  has been forced by the fall in the value  of silver and lead, which amounts_all  round to no less than $20 per ton of ore.  The freight and treatment charge could  be still further reduced if we had cheaper coal and coke.   The cost of coal and  coke represents 25 or 30 per cent of the  ^whole=cost=of-smelting-!ead-ores,-and-aU  least 50 per cent of the cost of smelting  the gold copper ores of the Boundary  country.   The entire fuel supply of the  Kootenays comes from the Crow's Nest.  The Crow's Nest Coal Company, organized  by certain persons in Toronto, is  the pioneer of the industry and has had  to spend a great deal of money in experimenting and obtaining a knowledge of  the peculiar local coditions. On this account the Kootenay   mine  owners   are  quite willing to pay it enough to yield  a fair return upon the capital invested.  But the present price of $2 per ton for  coal and $4 for coke on the cars at Fernie is without doubt too high,    ln any  event it is essential that the Crow's Nesl  Coal Company should cease to have a  monopoly of the fuel supply of southeastern British Columbia.   There is no  hostility to the, existing company.    It  deserves and is given credit for the enterprise it has displayed.   But the time  has come now that we have entered upon  a period of depression, to terminate its  monopoly   and   introduce   competition.  The situation is aggravated by the fact  that James J. Hill has come into possession of a large interest in the Crow's  Nest Coal Company.    There is no coal  or coke so good as this on the American  side of the line at any point within convenient distance of the American smelters.    Mr. Hill is building a line from  Kalispel,   on   the   Great   Northern,   to  Fernie, which will be completed in July.  He will then, it is said, secure the controlling 'interest  in   the   Crow's    Nest  Coal Company. He "would scarcely spend  the money to build a road to Fernie unless he was sure of becoming master of  the mines.   With this road finished, he  will   at   once begin to   feed American  smelters   with   coal   and coke, and, of  course will be in a position to "hold up"  the  Canadian  smelters, and, in   truth,  drive the smelting industry of British  Columbia into the United States.  This but adds to tho necessity of establishing competition with the Crow's  Nest Coal Company and of establishing  it at once. It has taken that company  three years of hard work to ship a  thousand tons of coal daily. A rival  company would require at least, six  months or more to open its mines,, get  its machinery in working order, and be  ready to compete on anything like an  equal footing with Mr. Hill and his Kalispel road.   It so happens that there are  Wreck of a Steamer.  LUDINGTON, Michigan, January 17.  ���Tho Pere Marquette Railway Company  steamer No. 3 struck the bar at the  mouth of the harbor early today while  attempting to enter, in a high southwest  gale, and was scuttled in nine feet of  water. The nine passengers and the  crew of thirty were taken off the wrecked craft by a life saving crew with their  breeches buoy apparatus. The No. 3 lies  150 feet from the end of the north pier  and 20 feet from the shore with the  waters dashing over her decks. She is  already a mass of ice. The accident occurred before daylight. Passengers and  crew were rudely awakened by the succession of shocks as the steamer pounded on the bar. Singnals of distress were  immediately blown and the life saving  crew quickly responded. Running their  mortar out on the pier, the life savers  shot a line to the wreck. Over this line  nine passengers, four of whom were  women, and the crew of thirty were  safely taken in on the breeches buoy in  two hours. Great, waves broke over  them and all were drenched by the icy  waters.         Cruel Treatment Denied  LONDON, January 17.���A blue book,  which was issued this morning on the  subject of concentration camps in South  Africa, contains further detailed explanations from lord Milner, the British high  commissioner, and lord Kitchener, as to  the causes of the excessive death rate  in the camps, and refutations of the  charges of cruelty. Lord Kitchener emphatically denies commandant Schlak-  burger's charges of forcible removal and  exposure of pregnant women, and other  only  four available places  for  mining  in the Crow's Nest.    At two of these,  Michel and Coal Creek, the existing company has started mines and it will soon  begin to mine at a third point north of  Morrissey creek.    The only  remaining  point lies on the south side of Morrissey creek and is embraced in the area  reserved by tho Dominion government  for the purpose of "homing a club" over  Messrs. Hill Jaffray and Cox.    Though  they profess to deny it, these gentlemen  naturally enough, wish to get possession  of the deposit south of Morrissey, which  would give them absolute control of all  the Crow's Nest coal measures.    They  could not very well ask 'Mr. Sifton to  convey the land south of Morrissey_tO  themselves, that is, the Crow's Nest Coal  Company, so they are trying to induce  him to convey it to aii allied company,  masquerading under another name. Failing in this, they   will   insist   that Mr.  Sifton shall not lease the the land south  of Morrissey at all, but lock it up and  keep it out of the market in order to  shut off competition with themselves. As  may be imagined, the   Kootenay   mine  owners do not relish this prospect.   The  coal deposits at the Crow's Nest are perhaps the sole factor in lead mining, in  which   we have  a   distinct   advantage  over the Americans,   lt is our one ewe  lamb, and to see it carried off by Mr.  Hil 1 in   the   interest   of the   American  smelters, is more than Canadian human  nature could endure.   No one supposes,  however, that Mr. Sifton will allow him  self to be jockeyed into consummating  the Hill monopoly in mat fashion.   The  Canadian Pacific railway, whose Crow's  Nest line traverses the coal measures,  is not at liberty to mine, being debarred  from doing so by an agreement made  four years ago   with   the   Crow's   Nest  Coal Company, when   no one   had any  idea that Mr. Hill would ever appear  upon the scene.. It is obvious, however,  that    the    only    effectual 0 competition  against Mr.  Hill  that  could  be  established would be a competition carried  on by a rival   coal   company   on   such  friendly terms with the C. P. R. that the  two together would leave nothing undone to cut prices   and   give   Canadian  smelters a good article of coal and coke.  As it is, the Canadian smelters declare  with one   voice, that  the   Crow's   Nest.  Coal Company is shipping its best coal  and coke to the United States via Leth-  bridge and  supplying them  with  infer  ior stuff at anexorbitant figure.  Happily, the subject is not mixed up  with party politics. Mr. Jaffray is president of the Toronto Globe, and Mr. Cox  a Liberal senator, but they are not the  whole Liberal party, with the cabinet  thrown in. As already said, no one h_s  the slightest desire to injure them or  their company. All tuat the Kootenay  mine owners ask, and it is a reasonable  request, is that honest competition shall  be set on foot so that Mr. Hill shall not  have it in his power to discriminate  against Canadian, and in favor of American smelters and also that the present high price of fuel may be reduced,  now that we are obliged to curtail outlays of all sorts because of the heavy  fall in the value of silver and lead. No  doubt Mr. Sifton will do what is right  and do it at once. It is essential that  the new coal company, who ever may  compose .it, should start development  work without delay, in order that it may  begin shipping to Canadian smelters as  soon as Mr. Hill's road is finished, otherwise the process of wrecking Canadian  smelters or discriminating against therii  may be carried so far as to leave the  situation far beyond the hope of recovery.  Last session the Dominion parliament  voted a bonus of $100,000 a year for the  establishment of a lead refinery in British Columbia. At present, our lead bul-  lioiv^has-to^be^sent-for-refining-to-San^  Francisco. The proprietors of the Trail  smelter have begun the erection of a refinery there which will cost $50,000. The  plant will be added to as the production  of lead increases. Mine owners will, it  is said, get the full benefit of the bounty  of $5 per ton, which will be of great assistance to the industry. But it would  be a manifest contradiction for the government to pay this bounty for refining  with one hand if with the other it was  helping James J. Hill to throttle mining  and smelting in this province.  accusations of rough and cruel treatment and says: "I offered Botha to  leave the families and relatives of fighting burgers in undisturbed possession  of their farms if Botha would agree to  spare the farms of families of surrendered burgers. Botha emphatically refused,  saying: 'I am entitled to force every  man to join, and if they do not join, to  confiscate their property and leave their  families on the veldt.'" The blue book  gives its statistics for the month of December last when there were 177,017 inmates of the camps, and 2380 deaths, of  which number 1767 were children.  TEBBIBLE HAYOC  CROWD OF WORSHIPPERS  KILLED.  _!__  More Exiled Boers.  HAMILTON, Bermuda, January 17.���  The British transport Montrose, has arrived here from Capetown, with another  detachment of Boer prisoners.  PRINCE HENRY SAILS TODAY  For Fair Columbia  BERLIN, January 17.���The secretary  of the imperial admirality Von Tireptez,  and the chief of emperor William's personal military staff, general Von Plessen,  are to accompany prince Henry of Prussia on the latter's visit to the United  States. The other members of the  prince's suite, besides vice-admiral  baron Von Seckendorf and adjutants  Von Schwind and Von Egidy, whose  names have already been mentioned,  will be captain Von Trotha, the emperor's general aide-de-camp, captain Von  Mueller, commander Von Grumme, who  is also aide-de-camp of the emperor's,  and staff surgeon Reich. . His majesty  definitely made these selections after  conferences this morning. Admiral Von Sechendorf, in giving the correspondent of the Associated Press these  names said: "The emperor personally,  is making all the arrangements that can  be made on this side. The details as to  how prince Henry shall spend his time  in the United States are left to secretary  Hay and Dr. Von Holleben, but our general idea of the dates is this:  "We arrive on the Kron Prinz Wilhelm, February 22nd, at New York, and  not at Hampton Roads as first reported.  Prince Henry will go an board the Hohenzollern and will stay there till the  launching of the emperor's new yacht,  which, we think, will probably be February 24th.. We go to Washington to see  the president, and, perhaps, stay there  several days. Then we make the most  of the next few days in seeing other  cities, returning to New York for two  more days before we sail for home on  the Deutschland on, March 8th. This  general design, as you see, fills about  four weeks, one week in going each way>  and a fortnight in the United States, it  was suggested to admiral Von Seckendorf that two weeks was not enough for  the prince to see much of America, and  that he ought to spend a longer time in  the United States and go west and south,  to which the admiral replied it would  be difficult for his royal highness to  spend a much longer time there though  the Deutschland sailing can be delayed  a day or two if it seems desirable. An  invitation from Chicago is mentioned, I  see, but I am unable to say whether it  will be accepted. That will be left to  your people."  Regret was expressed at the fact that  the emperor could not visit the United  States. "He would like to go," said admiral Von Seckendorf, "but we cannot  spare him for so long a journey now."  The admiral was asked if it was possible  that the emperor might visit the United  -States^at^some-future^time.���^It-would-  please him greatly," answered Von Seckendorf," it is not an impossibility."  BERLIN, January 17.���The Lokal An-  zieger today prints the following: "Emperor William has commissioned prince  Henry to meet the prominent New York  yachtsmen and invite them to participate in the Kiel regattas, beginning June  2'th. Prince Henry will also ask the  president to permit the United States  Mediterranean squadron to be present  at Kiel during the regatta week, so that  American seamen may participate in the  barge races. Prince Henry bears a valuable present from emperor Willian for  Miss Roosevelt.  WASHINGTON, January 17.���William  W. Downey, a member of the firm building emperor William's yacht, called at  the White House today. It was decided  that the launching shall occur at 10:30  a. m. on February 25th.-  Trial of Dr. Krauz Continued.  LONDON, January 17.���The trial of  Dr. Krauz, the former governor of  Johannesburg, on the charge of inciting  Cornelius Broecksman, the public prosecutor of Johannesburg (who was executed by the British authorities in South  Africa) to murder John Douglas Foster,  an English lawyer, who was on the staff  of lord Roberts, opened at the Old Bailey today. If the prisoner and his  friends were suspected of a design to explode dynamite in the court the precautions against the admission of unauthorized persons could not, have been more  stringent. Everyone was closely scrutinized and compelled to produce a card  of admission. The prisoner pleaded not  guilty. *  Premiers to Visit Canada.  TORONTO, January 17.���The executive of the Canadian Manufacturers' Association has decided to ask the government to ask the premiers of Australia  and New Zealand to return from the  king's coronation by way of Canada and  discuss trade questions.

Six Tame Rounds to a Draw.  PHILADELPHIA, January 17.���Lew  Ryall and Young Kelly, both of this  city fought six tame rounds to a draw  tonight. ,  MEXICO CITY, January 17,-One of the  most   terrible   catastrophes   ever   recorded  in tho state of Guerroro is reported haye  occurred late yesterday afternoon when an  extremely violent earthquake, which was  felt at Chllpaningo, caused a great loss of  life   and   injuring   many   persons.   Details  from the stricken district are very meager,  but scattering reports received here indicate probably 300 persons were killed and  as many more Injured. It is known that the  state capital,    the   parish    church,   many  business   houses and   residences   are   in  ruins and there is niuch suffering as a result of the awful seismic disturbance. One  of the edifices that suffered most was the  federal telegraph office, which explains the  scarcity of news that'has reached this city.  The   telegraph   lines   and  apparatus   were  badly damaged, but the employees, all of  whom were Injured,  quickly proceeded  to  erect an improvised telegraph offlce on the  outskirts of the city. The number of deaths  were  greater  ln  the  parish   than  in  any  single place, as the crowd of worshippers  were gathered there for tne afternoon service. The solid masonry wall toppled down  on  the' worshippers.   The war department  has ordered the troops in the neighborhood  to co-operate In the work of��� rescue. "Until  this work is completed it will be impossible  to learn the number of victims. It Is believed that this Is the most destructive seismic phenomena that has occurred in Mexico. The greater part of the people of Chil-  paniclngo are now camping out under trees  around, the town, which is five days' journey from the national hospital. Tho earthquake shocks were felt in many other cities  and towns. In Mexico. City the earthquake  took place at.5:17 yesterday afternoon and  was of such violence as to shake the most  substantial  buildings.  The flrst movement  was very sharp. It was folowed by an easier  oscillating  movement  north  northeast  to  south  southwest.  The duration was 55  seconds. The damage in the city was only  slight. Reports received here tonight state  the shock was very severe at Chilapa. No  casualties are so far reported from there.  In.durance the Chilpanclngo. was less prolonged than ttiat  of Mexico  City,   having  lasted 50 seconds against 55 seconds at the  capital.    The   earthquake   was   also very  heavy at Iguadida, in the state of Guerroro.  destroying   the  parish   church,   and  many  buildings  in  the city    and    neighborhood.  Among the latter was a sugar mill of general Prisbi, an' American. The mill had just  been completed and fitted up with American machinery at a cost of $200,000. The property loss is immense throughout the state.  Progress of Marysville Smeter.  The payroll of the Sullivan Mining Company for the employes on its new smeller  plant at Marysville, East Kootenay, for  this month' reach id about $7000. The men  aro paid on the 10th day of the month, and  bills for supplies are| paid on the lSth.'i 1Ai  number of photographs from Maiysviile  have been tak :n, showing views of the i-ew  town and tho progress made on tbe smelting plant. Last October the only building on  the site was an oil log hotel, but the photograph taken the latter part of December  shows a number of well constructed business buildings ln -which is represented  pearly eveiy branch of trade, including  a real estate off.je and a newspaper. The  town has also a waterworks system and a  volunteer fire department. The photograph  of i he smelter building shows that it is  nearly completed, and a commodious office  building has b-sen finished and is ready for  occupancy. Close,to the smelter Is a saw-  niill, which has a daily capacity of 15;000  feet of lumber per day. This plant has  been ln operation for 3o?ne time and is cutting all the lumber and timbers that are  being used in the construction of the new  works. Superintendent J. S. Austin is now  In Denver, Colorado, purchasing machinery  for the plant. It Is expected that he will return from thera next week. Work on the  smelter is being rushed and the officials  here say that they will te ready to "blow  in by the 1st of June. The tailroad spur has  been completed to the smelter and several  carloads of lime and brick have dcoii do-  ;ivered to be used in the construction oft.he  roasters, the foundation stone for winch  has already been completed. The frame is  up for the power house and It will be com-  nloted In a short time.

SALT LAKE, Utah, January 17.���A  special to the Tribune from Spokane,  Washington, says: Lying guarded in  a lodge building of the Order of Washington, is an unknown candidate for initiation who was severely hurt during  the ceremonies last night. He is watched by fellow members who refuse to give  his name and are using all efforts to  prevent it becoming public. Part of the  initatory ceremony is blindfolding the  victim and drawing him around the room  at top speed in a little cart. The inia-  tion crew were unable to control the  wagon and the. helpless victim was  dumped over against the great high altar  in the room. His side was crushed in  and he was paifully hurt. Members  of the lodge have kept him under treatment in the lodge room. The Order of  Washington is a new fratenal insurance  organization. It has some women members and news of the accident is said to  have leaked out through them.  Dobell's Successor  QUEBEC, January 17.���The death of Hon.  R. R. Dobeli has given rise to a number of  interesting rumors. The young Liberal element here is a unit in urging the claims of  Mr. Carroll, M.P. for Kamaouraska,, as  Mr. Dobell's successor as minister without  a portfolio. It is anticipated the govcrn-  ment will lose no time in issuing writs for  the election of a successor and a number  of friends of Hon. Mr. Fitzpatrick are urging him to resign the representation of Quebec county to run for Quebec West. Many  are urging the candidacy of Mr. William  Power,.now en- route.to England, and. it is  said the solicitor general will be glad to  see him elected if he can secure the support of the Liberal convention. It is believed J. G. Hearn, M.L.A., could easily  carry the seat, but he declines to leave his  business interests to. go to Ottawa. Other  likely candidates mentioned are Harold  Kennedy and AVilliam Prire, either of  whom,- it is said in well informed circles  the government would be willing to appoint  to the cabinet without a. portfolio to represent the interests of the commercial community, interests.

Government Control of Cables.  AVASHINGTON, January 17.���Government  control of the projected Pacific <'able was  advocated before the house committee on  commerce today by general Greely, head  of the United States signal service, who  raid that an American cable to the Philippines would do much to Americanize the  islands. Ho gave instances of current news  appearing in the Philippines via foreign  cables presenting tho affairs of Germany  and other countries but not mentioning the  most important developments in the United  States. Vice-president Clark of the Western Union Telegraph Company -aid that  ihe plan presented by the Commercial "Company contemplated exclusive arrangements  with lines In the far east, and would debar  ihe public and the government from tho  advantages of competition. Calling attention to the prospective. development of  trade in the Orient, he emphasized the disadvantage which would result to American  commerce if control were granted to tho  Pacific cable. It would place the far eastern  lines of tho cable systems entirely under  forelcn control.  -   A  New Island,  HONOLULU, January 17.���via San Francisco.���The British sloop of war Condor,  leng overdue from Victoria, has not yet  ai rived at this port.

OAKLAND, California, January 17.���Jack  O'Brien of New York was given the decision over "Young" Glbbs of Cleveland at  the end of the 15th round last night, lt was  O'Brien's fight all the way through.  " PHILADELPHIA, January 17. ��� Tom  Sharkey and Peter Maher, who were her-*  aided to fight six rounds before the Industrial Athletic Club for the champion ship,  of Ireland, were stopped' by referee Roecap  in the middle of the third round of ono  of the poorest exhibitions ever given In this  city. The ,men were arrested early In the  evening and bound over in $5000 bail to keep  the peace, and this damped their vigor  and reduced the steam of their blows.  There was not a blow struck which would  have rocked a cradle. When the bout had  progressed for about two and a half rounds  amid incessant yells of "take them off,"  referee Roecap stepped to the side of the  ring and said that he had been asked to  refree a contest. "This is not a contest," ho  concluded, and the men took their corners  and the contest was over. Both Sharkey  and the president of the club attempted  to address the angry crowd, but neither  were permitted to speak. The spectators  were worked to such a pitch that they  broke chairs and benches in/their desire to  get even. It was little satisfaction for the  4000 spectators who had paid from $2 to $5  for seats.  : PHILADELPHIA, January 17. ��� Tom  Sharkey and Peter Maher, the pugilists,  and James McFarland, an official of the  Industrial Athletic Club, under the auspices of which organization the Sharkey-  Maher fight took place tonight, were arrested late this afternoon on warrants  charging them with conspiracy to commit  a breach of the peace. They were held in  $5000 bonds to keep the peace and appear  in court tomorrow morning. Bail was furnished. The warrants were sworn out by  J. D. Barnitz, a citizen who represents the  law and order society of this city. More  than a dozen witnesses were subpoenaed,  most of them sporting writers on Philadelphia and New Yorks papers. About halC  a dozen of the witnesses were examined  and the magistrate considered that sufficient evidence had been elicited to warrant  him in holding the prisoners. The men  ���promised that there would be no knock out, '*  no violence and no Infraction of the state  laws regarding prize fighting and that they,  , would.' engage - only", in ,a sparring : contest.  This promise was accepted by the police  magistrate and the bail was fixed at $500  for the three men. He said If they' lived  up to the promise they will be discharged  on their appearance in court tomorrow,  morning.  At the commencement there was a tiresome wait of 40 minutes. The fighters insisted on seeing their money before entering tho ring and It was 11:40 when Sharkey;  made his appearance. He was followed a.'  moment later by Maher. Both men wero  greeted with tremendous applause. Seated  close to the ring were champion James J.  Jeffries and former champion Robert Fitzsimmons. Little time was wasted In formalities, the men quickly donned the gloves)  and at 1.1:45 the fight began.  In Sharkey's corner were Dave Sullivan,  Jim Buckley and Al F. King, while Tim  Callahan, p'eter Lowery and Mike Campbell were behind Maher  Round 1.���The men sparred for a few  seconds, Sharkey being the first to lead,  Maher rushed to a clinch. They merely tapped each other. There was loud cries oC  "take 'em off," and many of the spectators,  started to leave the building. There was  not a blow In tho first round hard enough,  to jar the teeth of a featherweight. "When  the men took their corners there was hisses:  and cries.  Round 2.���After fiddling for a few moments Maher led a light left on Sharkey's  stomach. Sharkey slapped Maher over tho  face with the open glove and the two mere  wrestled over tho ring. Sharkey led his left  and Maher ducked Into a left uppercut.  Tho men-con tin ued-their-glovo-tapping-an<J =-_  tlie crowd hissed. Sharkey landed a light  left nnd Maher countered with a good stiff  right over the heart. Sharkey landed his  open glove on Maher's face, but the blow  was not hard enough to snake Pete's head.  The men were dancing about the ring when  the gong sounded.  Ron ml .1.���Sharkey led for tho wind but  fell short and Peter slapped him on tho  face. Peter landed a light loft on Sharkey's  ribs and received a gentle tap on tho back  of tlie neck as ho ducked. Maher led for tho  head and the men clinched and wrestled.  Sharkev tapped Maher on the head and got  a light blow on the stomach In return. In  tho middle of the round referee Roecan  walked to Ihe side of the rtnjr and said:  "Gentlemen. I was asked to referee a  contest. This Is no contest." The men took  to thoir corners nnd Sharkey attempted to  make n. speech, but the crowd became so  boisterous that his words were lost among  (ho cat-calls and hisses. The contest was.  then adjourned.  A Twenty Round Eout  BALTIMORE, January 17.���Georgo Dixon*  and Joe Llpman fought twenty rounds to  a draw before the Eureka Athletic Club;  here tonight. Llpman, who Is a Baltimore  boy, had about twenty pounds the advantage of the veteran in weight, but Georgo  made it up in reach and science and tho  fight proved a very even one from start to  finish. Dixon did most of the leading and  landed oftener than the Baltomorian, but  the latter came up strong and knocked the  ex-champlon all over the ring in one o��  the fiercest rallies ever seen In this city.  The decision rendered by referee Manta  seemed a thoroughly popular one.  Protest Against American Capitalists  ST.

There are many inequalities in the  present Municipal Elections Act. One of  the most glaring is the qualifications for  voters. As the Act is construed, any  person who holds a license and does business in one ward can vote in that ward  and can qualify as a householder and  vote in another ward. The same is true  if. the person who owns property in one  ward; he can vote in that ward as an  assessed owner, and in another ward as  a license holder or as a householder.   A  ' man who is unable or unwilling to own  property in his own name has his wife  ��� assessed as the property owner, and he  votes as a householder. The present  voters' list Of Nelson contains the names  -^cL^TS-Persons^wjio^h^d^he rightto cast  votes for aldermen in both wards. In  other words, these 78 persons had a dual  vote for members of the city council;  and after all is said the aldermen really  govern the city, the mayor having only  one vote, and on all questions decided  by votes, the decision of the majority  governs. At the election on Thursday,  70 out of the 78 persons who had dual  votes exercised their rights. Of these,  22 are known to have supported John  A. Kirkpatriek for mayor, and no doubt  thoy voted for candidates for aldermen  who supported Mr. Kirkpatriek.' The  remaining 48 are known to have supported Frank Fletcher lor mayor, and  they no doubt supported the Fletcher  candidates for aldermen. Nelson is divided into two wards, which are not  evenly divided either in assessed valuation of property or in voting strength.  Judging from the results of past elections, twenty to thirty votes elect the  aldermen in each ward. Take the vote  of last Thursday as an example of how  this dual voting affects the general result. Mr. Kirkpatriek polled 199 votes  in the East ward as against 170 for Mr.  Fletcher. Mr. Kirkpatrick's aldermanic  candidates therefore could not expect a  larger vote than was polled for the head  of the ticket, but along comes the dual  voters. As stated above, 22 of these  voted for Kirkpatriek and 48 for  Fletcher, which means that the Fletcher  candidates for aldermen in the East  ward had 21�� votes to come to their assistance. These 2G added to the vote  cast for Mr. Fletcher brought the  Fletcher aldermanic vote up to 196, or  within three votes of the total polled for  Mr. Kirkpatriek. W. J. Wilson, who was  n candidate for alderman in the East  ward on the Fletcher ticket polled 189  votes, or seven less than the vote for  Fletcher plus the dual voters who are  known to have voted for Fletcher. The  Kirkpatriek candidates for aldermen in  tho East ward were strong men, and  With tbe exception of Mr. Wilson, the  Fletcher candidates were lacking in elements of strength. Had the two tickets  been equally strong in the East ward,  the 26 dual voters might possibly have elected one or two of the  Fletcher candidates for aldermen, notwithstanding the fact that Mr. Kirkpatriek carried the ward by a majority of  29 votes. Few of these dual voters are  large property owners, and many of  them do not own a dollar's worth of  real estate. Men who have large property and business interests, like John  J. Malone, Al Tregillus, W. F. Teetzel,  Jacob- Dover, Hamilton Byers, John  Biomberg, James A. Gilker, Percy Crid-  dle, Edward Ferguson, R. J. Hamilton,  A. H. Buchanan, J. A. Irving, John  Johnson, Chris Morrison, Robert McGregor, Thomas M. Ward, John Paterson, Robert Reisterer, J. R. F. Rowley,  William R. Seatle, H. J. Scott, Alfred  Bunker, Alexander Dow, John Hamilton, Grange V. Holt, C. W. Busk, .lame-  Lawrence, A. L. McKillop, David McKay, D. C. McMorris, E. E. Phair, J.  Roderick Robertson, and Joe Sturgeon,  have but one vote for aldermen.  The ward system should be abolished,  and there should be but one qualification for the voter. The qualification, in  the opinion of The Tribune, should be  a declaration that the. person making it  is a British subject, 21 years old, and  has resided in the municipality during  the year in which the declaration is  made, and that he has paid all taxes,  rates, and licenses for which he is liable  to the municipality (except such taxes  and. rates as become a charge on real  property if not paid when due), the declaration to be made at any time between  the first and the last days of December  in each year, and to be made before either  the city clerk or the police magistrate.  The mayor should hot have anything to  do with revising the list. A court of  revision, if held, should be before a  county court judge or police magistrate,  officials in no way dependent for their  offices on the result of a civic election.  One man one vote, and the same quali-  Incl^i-i-^-or^all^voterar"^"^ ���=  The election of Thursday has taught  people . a lesson. In order to have a  voice in the government of the city, it  is very necessary to be on the voters'  list.    The Miner, which is tho' newspaper  organ of the Crow's Nest Coal Company  and of E. V. Bodwell of Victoria, declares that the defeat of John A. Kirkpatriek means the end of John Houston's  political career. For the information  of the Miner, it may be stated that John  Houston is not losing any sleep over  either his past or his future political  career.  The Fletcher crowd are already beginning to "butter" two of tlie aldermen  elected in opposition to their ticket.  They are now called "reasonable" men.  This is not what they were called before they were elected. Before the result of the election was known they were  called "Houston's puppets.': The majority of the present council were elected because they are reasonable and sensible and honorable men, and they can  be depended on to discharge their official duties with reason and sense* and  honor. In doing this, they may, and no  doubt will, at times differ from the  mayor and his two supporters in the  council. But government in city councils, as in legislative bodies, is carried  on by the majority, and if mayor  Fletcher finds himself in a minority on  important civic questions, the chances  are the majority will be in the right in  exercising their rights.  All city officials are elected by ballot,  and none can be called elected without  having received a clear majority of the  votes cast. City officials need not be  friends of the mayor, no more than  friends of individual members of the  council; but the mayor has the power  to suspend any official at any time and  give his reasons to the council for so  DELICATE  TINTS  The newest "thing"  in correspondence  papers is  DIMITT  This paper is unlike any other.

If they believe the reasons  are good ones, the act of the mayor is  approved; if they believe the reasons  are not good, the suspended official is  reinstated.  A Telegram  ROSSLAND, January 17.���To John  Houston, Nelson: Did you hear anything drop in Nelson and Rossland today. (Signed.) A. S. Goodeve, L. A.  Campbell, A. Deschamps, and John S.  Clute.  These four men are not so. well acquainted with John Houston as to justify them in sending him a message of  either congratulation or condolence.  But John Houston is a good-natured  politician, and he will admit he did hear  something drop on Thursday. He heard  that the men who work with their hands  and their brains, and not with their  mouths, made a clean sweep at Slocan  City and at Kaslo; elected seven out  of twelve of their candidates at Nelson,  and polled 393 votes for an almost unknown man for mayor at Rossland as  against 455 for one of the signers of the  above telegram. Yes; something did  drop on Thursday. The something that  dropped that was heard sounded the  death-knell to class and grafter government in every city in British Columbia.  Men���and we mean men in the best  sense in which the word is used���now  know that if they are to be governed  wisely and well thoy must see to it that  they have a vote, and that their vote  will have an equal strength with that of  any other voter.  Some Interesting Figures  OTTAWA, January 17.���A return prepared by the Dominion statistican from  the United States census returns shows  that there were' 1,181,778 Canadians in  that  country in  1900.  In 1890 there were 980,938.  The increase from 1880 to 1890 was  203,781, and from 1890 to 1900 was 200,-  840. The increase between 1880 and 1890  was? 30.8 per cent, and between 1890 and  1900 it was 20.5 per cent.  Of the 1,181,778 persons who have  transferred themselves from the Canadian side of the line to the United States  786,581 were English-speaking Canadians, and 395,197 were - French-speaking.  In the last ten years the increase of  Englisb-speaking Canadians in the  United States was 16 per cent, and of  French-speaking Canadians 30 per cent.  The attraction for Canadians has been  largely in the border centers. From 1885  to 1890 about 12,000 Canadians left Canada every year to take up their residence  in Massachusetts alone.  In every state and territory of the  United States English-speaking Canadians outnumber the French-speaking  Canadians except in Conneticut, New  i,HampshiM,^WK^JsJand,^.nd Vermont.  The Dominion staOs-icaii^-ipresses1  the opinion that the general movement  of Canadians to the United States is on  the decrease.  The Bolters Convention  There was one little surprise in store  for the opposition members of the legislature who attended the" convention in  New Westminster this afternoon.  It was that Thomas Kidd and John  Oliver, who have been accounted recently by the opposition members as unfriendly to the government, declined to  attend the caucus and have practically  announced themselves in favor of'the  government. Their decision is stated to  be based more immediately upon the  published statement oi the premier this  week, in which his policy was fully outlined.  This afternoon when the convention  opened at New Westminster there were  only ten members present. From the  upper country there came W. C. Munro,  of Chilliwack; Dennis Murphy of Ashcroft; Tom Taylor, of Revelstoke; F. J.  Fulton, qf Kamloops. From Vancouver  there went R. G. Tatlow and James F.  Garden, and from Victoria came D. H.  Helmcken and A. ID. McPhillips. while  in New Westminster city there were  Thomas Gifford and Richard" McBride,  the latter of Dewdney.  John Oliver, of Delta, did not heed the  summons, and was not in the Royal  City. Mr. Kidd, of Richmond, was in  town, but declined to attend.  Letters agreeing with the calling of  the caucus were read from Smith Curtis  and J. P. Booth.���The Province.  Ninth Infantry Return From Pekin.

Alexander Tremblay, the famous  hunter and trapper ot* tlie Parry Sound  district relates the folloAviug bear tales:  Two years ago last, spring he was returning to his shanty after buying a  quantity of supplies. These he packed  and carried them on his shoulders in  tlie Indian fashion, with a supporting  strap around his brow, the bundle projecting high above his head. Walking  slowly along the main trail Avith his  head bent, his sense of smell warned  him of the presence of a bear. He looked up quickly, and saw a fair-sized  bruin of the black variety some twenty  paces in front of him. The bear regarded him Avith wondering gaze, apparently doubtful as to Avhether his  form, with the big pack looming boldly  above him, Avas really that of the man's,  or that of some new animal. Tremblay  on his part was mentally debating as to  the best course to pursue under the  circumstances. And so they halted for  Avhat seemed to the man to be "a leetle  cternitee." The bear was on its hind  feet, standing straight "1>, waved its  paws in an aimless fashion, and finally  drew one across its eyes, as though to  clear his vision. Then it dropped to all  fours and backed slowly to a little  stone-capped knoll on the side of the  road, sat down and waited. ��� Tremblay  concluded that, boldness in this case  was the better part of valor, and continued to walk, conscious that, bruin was  still trying to form an opinion as to  Avhat manner ol" animal this could be.  On passing the knoll Tremblay turned  and gave vent to a series of shouts.  Bruin's head was sharply raised, his  Avhole attitude betokened startled conviction and fear. "Scratch my fur, but  it's man after all," he seemed to be  saying to himself, as he plunged into  the thicket arid  disappeared. *  An amateur sportman during tlie  spring season spent a few weeks with  Tremblay and met Avith an adventure  which, while ending happily, and furnishing a hearty laugh, he has no wish  to repeat. He borroAved one of the  trapper's dugout canoes, and started off  on ono of the small lakes of the Parry  Sound district in search of game, his  Aveapon being an old, but hitherto reliable musket and a tomahawk. Fortune  Avas against him, and after unsuccessful  explorations of several points at which  he landed, he commenced his return  journey in the late afternoon. Within  a mile of the home shore he saAV what  he at first thought to be a piece of  clothing floating in the Avater. He paddled toAvards it. and his heart beat  fast with anticipation AVhen he discovered it 'to "be a-good-si-ed black' bear.  Bringing1 the'canoe alongside ^ruin*,. lie  i'eached o'utV placed the muzzle of the  musket against the ajumal's head and  pulled the trigger. But, alas, for visions of glory, bear steak and a good  hide, the weapon missed flee. Again he  "tviedrand-again^the-muskct-refusea-to.  act up to its reputation. Meanwhile  the bear, evidently tired of swimming,  had apparantly arrived at the qonchis-  ion that he would go to shore as  assistant crew of the dugout. Placing his paAvs on the dugout he proceeded to climb aboard, A dugout is ant  (o play queer tricks unless properly  handled, and the young sportsman, having no desire to take a hath at that  time, and realizing too. late the bear's  Intention, confined himself to preserving the equilibrium of his craft. If  necessity demanded it he determined  to fight With his tomuhaulc and take  the chances of a ducking. Bruin, however, had uo thought of war. He simply desired to get to land with as little  exertion as possible, and he squatted  down- at one end ot" the dugout, while  the sportsman, sitting as far away as  possible, paddled toward tho fihore. The  mail ��as< frightened and"Kept a" close  Watch' on 'the' animal. The bear sal  pprfectly quiet however and seemed to  be "filled with the melancholy thoughts  winch a brilliant;, sunlight followed by  f,he falling*-hadows of night are apt to  produce' in even the healthiest of. minds.  At last the 'dugout Avith its strangly  varied UYing freight struck land. The  man "jumped out quickly the bears  movements were more leisurely. On  reaching terra Anna it nodded its head  as though to convey a "Thank you old  chap," and Avalked slowly aAvay. Tremblay, Avho had been looking for his  young friend, was a spectator of the  close of the episode. At the young man s  request he made no attempt to slay the  animal, but the forme;', Ay.hqso nervous  sv-tphfwa-'yet'xths'ti'ui'ig by the.strange  encounter, could not give a corrected  story of the incident until he had rested  and partaken of the evening meal.  ' r��]*e sportsman referred to himseli  tells the following' story of which he  was an eye-witness, as illustrating one  of'tho'manv fine traits in Tremblay's  character. One year ago last spring the  old hunter set a trap on the main trail,  near to his shanty, at a point where  he believed bears were in the habit ot  ������rosriing. ''On the following morning,"  _ays the young man, "we found a sho  bear in the trap, quite dead. Lying  on her body Avas a cub Avith claw  wounds on its back. Another sat near  her head and his own head Was cut in  attempting an escape. They took no no-  THE CANADIAN  BANK OF COMMERCE  WITH WHICH IS AMALGAMATED  THE  BANK OF  BRITISH COLUMBIA.

After removing the trap and before  skinning the dead animal Tremblay  took off his thick hunter's shirt, wrapped it carefully and tenderly around  the cubs and carried them to his shanty.  He Avashed their wounds, fed them some  bread, all the time remarking, "Pore  leetle fell'rs, pore leetle fell'rs." Then  he made a. bed for them near the fireplace. No one would have given kinder  care to a sick friend than he did to  thoso cubs, and from his conversation  and conduct I am convinced that he was  actuated solely by kind-heartedness,  and not by any thought of bringing  them up for future gain. They died  within two days, however, and Tremblay's soitoav Avas genuinely deep."  VANITY FAIR.  Bennet Burleigh, the noted English  war corespondent, reports a suggestive  conversation between a British officer  and a Boer field cornet, under the ilag  of truce. The former asked: "When do  you think the war Avill be over?" "Oh,"  replied the other, "AVhen you people are  able to catch a horse with an ox-Avagon;  not before."  Not long ago, AVhen Wu Ting-fang,  the Chinese minister, Avas showing the  portraits in the Corcoran Art Gallery,  his guide pointed out a portrait of the  late Li Hung Chang, "lt doesn't look  like him," said the minister. "It's only  a three-quarters vieAv," replied the  guide. "It doesn't look three-quarters  like him," returned Mr. Wu.  On one occasion, governor "Dick"  Oglesby went down to Joliet to inspect  the state prison, and in one of the cells  he found a very ugly man. "How did  you get in here?" asked Oglesby. "Abduction," Avas the reply; "1 tried to run  off Avith a girl, and they caught me."  "I'll pardon you as soon as I get back  to Springfield,' said the governor; "1  don't see how you could expect to get a  wife in any other Avay.."  A travelling man v/no drove across  the country to a little town in Western  Kansas the other day, met a farmer  hauling a wagon-load of Avater. "Where  do you get water?" he asked. "Up the  road about seven miles," the farmer  replied. "And you haul water seven  miles for your family and stock?"  "Yep." "Why, in the name of sense,  don't you dig a Avell?" asked the. traveller. "Because its just as far one way  as the other, stranger."  Captain Richard Phillips Lary, IJ. S.  N., who passed away a fortnight ago,  issued a number of proclamations  shortly after he was made first governor of Guam, which contributed materially to %he gayety of natipnss. Perhaps  his most famous order was on the subject of matrimony, upon which subject  the natives of Guam did not seem to  have very definite ideas. Captain Leary  reported that "the divorce court and  the hymeneal altar are popular resorts.  The.court_orders and the _merry_ wed  ding bells are constantly and harmoniously ringing out their decrees."  When he was plain professor Thompson, lord Kelvin invented a mirror gal-  anometer and siphon recorder, which  made submarine telegraphy commercially practicable. It is rolated that one  day when he was engaged on his deep-  sea sounding \vorlc, he was discovered  by a visitor experimenting Avith a long  coil of wire, "What is that for?" inquired the visitor, pointing to the wire.  "Making sounds," replied tho professor.  "Ah," said the guest, jocularly, "what  kind of note does it give oil"?" "The  deep C, of course," came tho answer,  like a shot, accompanied by the well-  known winkle in the professor's eye.  Not so many years ago, there Avas a  veteran teacher in the Boyd- High  School, vv'ho often ma'ile his classes  wince under the lash of his bitter sarcasm and ready wit. One day a little  half-starved, yellow cur strayed into  the school, anil tfio buys thought they  saw a cluince to express their feelings  toward ''Fussy," who AVas busy in another rooni- The frightened mongrel  was picked up, quickly fitted Avith a  pair of large Avire spectacles, and placed  on the teacher's chair. "Fussy*' entered  the room, walked to his desk, and then,  turning to them, pleasantly said: "In  my absence, I see you have hold a business meeting and elected one of your  number chairman."  General William Joyce ScAV.ell, who  passed away at $vmfj_:������,, N.'.)'., on December _7t.h,' was a generous friend and  an equally good hater, as Avas shown  by his treatment of colonel Scovel, \yho  had dared to dispute nis authority in  Camden politics. On. lime, when the  colonul thought he had smoothed  things over sufficiently to make it possible, he ventured to ask Scwell to send  him a pass to San Francisco. The pass  came by return of mail. "But, general,"  Scovel exclaimed, at an early morning  call at the West Jersey railway oflleo  the next day, "tlie pass is only to San  Francisco. There is no return coupon  Avith it." "Sir," the general rontral,  "I'm willing to send you to California,  but I'll be   if I'll help you to get  back ;igain."

The "navy" of the particular power referred to consists of a  single, old-fashioned, side-wheel steamer, armed Avith one gun. In time of  peace sho is engaged in hauling freight  up and doAvn the river which runs close  to the capital. At the outbreak of one  of the periodical wars, not so very long  ago, the president of the republic took  charge of the steamer and started up  stream on a recruiting expedition, leaving his senior general in charge of the  mlilitary preparations at the capital.  A couple of days later, the steamer returned, and some seventy miserable-  looking natives, each firmly bound Avith  a strong rope, were marched off and  turned over to the general, with a note  from the president, which read: Dear  General���I send you herewith seventy  volunteers.

"You see,  it's like this," the stranger began. "I  had a girl that I loved, and we was .going to git married. She had her things  made up, and we was all ready, wlien  she Avas taken ill and died. Now, what  I want is a picture of me sit-in' on her  grave Aveepin'." The photographer was  touched at the homely story of grief,  and told him he could send a man Avith  him to the grave, and have the picture  taken as desired. "It's some distance,"  the stranger explained, "it's over in  Ireland. I expect it 'ud cost a lot to  send over your traps for Avhat I want."  The photographer said it Avould, whereupon his visitor added: "I thought that  mebbe you could rig up a grave here in  your shop, and I would weep on it, and  it Avould do just as well. It's no trouble  for me to weep anyAvhere."  Commenting on tbe gondola service  of Venice, William E. Curtis says:  "James Gordon Bennett, of the NeAV  York Herald, Avho spends a good deal of  time in Venice, has a white gondola  trimmed with gold, which he uses as a  ���runabout Avhen he comes here, and creates a great sensation because all. the  other gondolas are black. They look as  if they were draped in mounring, the  bodies being painted a dull black and the  upholstering being black broadcloth,  such as is used in coffins. This has been  the rule since the fifteenth century, and  was adopted in order that the citizens  might escape the surveillance of the  spies of the government, because one  black gondola cannot be detected from  another. Many of the private gondolas  are handsomely upholstered, and the  costumes of the gondoliers are picturesque. They handle tne awkward-look-  ing boats with Ayonde*-ful" skill with a  single oar, which, they use standing.  They seldom lift it out of the water, and  do not pull, but push, 'feathering' to return the blade. The movement looks  very easy and simple to those who have  uot tried it, but the person who has  once attempted to navigate a gondola  will not be apt to try it a second time.  The accuracy with Avhich a gondolier  can guide a boat Avithout a rudder is  "marveloliis^for'they^pa-S^through^the  crowded canals in an almost miraculous  manner, Avithout disturbing the passengers or colliding Avith other boats, and  are able to stop suddenly when going at  a considerable speed. You hire a gondola in Venice just as you do a cab in  any other city, the tariff being fixed by  law. It costs twenty cents for a single  trip for two passengers, and thirty cents  for three or four passengers. By the  hour you pay twenty cents, and one dollar and twenty cents for the Avhole day  for one person, and one-half more for  every additional person."  ir iilutc at tljo White House.

The purchase was not "modest;' In  fact for Uvu day, it was really regal, but  it :������> ciiaiiced that Just hl that time a Hus-  siim nobleman who had met with reverses  was obliged to part with his family plate,  und had brought it to Paris to sell. Tho  American minister heard of this, and upon  c_a.mina.tion bought the entire lot. It contained soup tureons, tea, coffee and chocolate auts, plates f.nd platters, besides  spoons and Knives and forks of all d-wnc  tions, covering in short three hundred and  thirty-eight pieces. Seme of this silver Is  still In use at the AA'hito House, and, with  much that has been added, is kept in tho  wicden. leather-bound trunks inscribed  "M. le Baron de Tuyll," in which it was originally brought over. Almost a,}\ or the  plate of th.2 executive n^oyi^i^U is engraved  "Prcsid'crt-*- l-touse." and part of it, wiOi  most '6- the out glass, bears the coat of  arms of tho United States. The linen is  marked with the embroidered letters "U  S." There are a few pieces: af the Polly  Madison set of china loft, and more th/in  a hundred pluees ot red-bordered, schiclcl-  bearliiH- china which Lincoln ordered.  Yhere are three hundred and sixty-two  pieces of the hand-painted china which Mrs.  Hayes took such pride in selecting, and  the Harriscn and Cleveland sets are still  practically intact; but even with all th.se  I here are scarcely enough dishes to servo;  tho different courses at tho great state  dinners.  Much clamor and confusion has been done  nwnv with at the Metropolitan opera house  In Now York by the installation of an illuminated carriage call system, whicli sig-  rals to waiting coachmen a half mile distant. The proper numbers are dashed from  a conspicuous place commanding the  si retches of pavement where the carriages,  cabs and automobiles fcunerly crowded  and .lammed the cros.-.ing.s after opera  hours. Operators stationed at tho entrance  .���ire given numbered checks, and, without  the aid of the -nan with tho fog-horn voice,  calling one's vehicle now is only a matter  of switching a series of- levers, arranged  somewhat like a typewriter board. The figures from 0 to 9 can be shown in the three  largo apertures, so.that cai-riage calls may  be numbered up in the hundreds and  changed every few seconds. The principle  of the device is something similar to the  shifting advertising legends written in col-  oi ed incandescent lights. This innovation  does away with all shouting for carriages,  and gives the coachman no excuse for delay or confusion, as lhey are able to read  their numbers against the sky a half dozen  blocks away.  Poultney Bigelow says ho has sampled  a large number of hotels in his time--even  in Greece���but for barefaced dishonesty in  making bills, the English landlord takes  flrst place. "After charging twice what lnr-  meals and rooms are worth, he takes on a  further charge for service, another tor  lights, another for bath, another for fire.  In short, my experience of country inns in  England���and I can speak with some authority���is that I pay as much a day at a  shabbv little country inn in "England  where" the food Is poor and ill cooued, tlio  attendance inferior, and the bods poor, as  I would at a good hotel ln Springfield, Massachusetts, or the very dest In f"wif7crUnd  or Germany. Indeed, it must have struck  tho average American that the inco sparable Baedeker hardly ever finds it possible  to recommend an English hotel."  Twenty-two Persons Drowned.

The flags at tho county court anl provincial police offices were half masted yesterday on account of the death of chief .iustico  McColl of Victoria, who died on Thursday  evening during a convulsion. He had been  suffering for some time from Bright's  disease.  T. "W. L/illie, ex-chief of the fire department, has received a communication from  Messrs.

C. Kating, prime  leader in the prisoner mutiny of November 7th, has been located near Quebec and can be had whenever wanted.  He was located by the Canadian police  through the Bertillon system of identification.  Miss Helen Gould to Build  LITTLE ROCK, January 17.���Miss  Helen Gould and party arrived here today. The new shops on the Iron Mountain were inspected and a location for  a handsome Y. M. C. A. building for employees of the Iron Mountain system  was chosen. The purpose of Miss Gould's  trip -south is to inspect personally the  needs of the workingmen of the Missouri Pacific railway, in the hope of aiding their condition by establishing suitable Y. M. C. A. departments, with appropriate buildings, at concentrating  points for the exclusive use and benefit  of the employees. Slie will go to Texas  points from this city to look over the  situation in the Lone Star State.  ginning, and promises well for the future.  Tho Munger mill, situate on the banks  of the Klondyke, is of the two-stamp,  steam hammer variety, equal, it is said,  to five stamps of the old gravity system.  The machinery i.s all enclosed from the  weather, and no difficulty was encountered from the temperature. The pulp,  after running over the necessary plates  and concentrators, is discharged into a  six-inch pipe which empties into the  Klondyke below the level of the ice, and  through a covered way which it is believed will prevent all stoppages from  freezing.  The rock ground up by tlie mill so  far, is from claims on the hill at tbe  head of Victoria gulch, the claims having been acquired by the Munger mill  people themselves. The snow has made  the hauling of the rock a comparatvely  easy matter, and no scarcity of rock is  anticipated this winter.  The results of tbe mill run are not  yet being given to the public. Since the  Munger people are buyers of quart-  claims, it is not to be expected that  their books will ever be thrown open to  the public. But that is the least of Dawson's troubles. What we are interested  in is that the mill shall continue to run,  and other and larger ones be installed  next year. In so doubly practical a  country as this, the fact that the mill  continues to run is sufficient guarantee  of its being operated at a profit, and the  existence of a profit is again a guarantee  that profitable rock lias been found and  is being worked.  The mill has been hammering away all  this week, though some small improvements to be made have caused a number  of short shut-downs. The mill people" have  little to say of results, but as an indication as to which way the wind is blowing,  it may be mentioned that while the Douglas Island people charge $75 per ton for a  test mill run, lt is said that the Muncer  peoplo havo offered to grind and wash the  Victoria Hill quartz of independent mine  owners for the half of what shall be taken  out of the rock. Tho offer was not made  for publication but is said to have been a  genuine offer to a. possible producer. The  starting up of the Munger mill was not accompanied by the blare of trumpets, yet is  self-evidently the most important event in  tho life of the Klondike since the discovery  of its best streams. Quietly and unobtrusively the proprietors have gone to work  and at their own expense are furnishing  the community with a means of demonstrating to the skeptical world the value of  tho several thousand quartz claims of the  district, if such value exists. Their confidence in the quartz is demonstrated, not  only by volumes of printed assertion, but  by commencing to grind on quartz from  their own ground, where their only possible  returns must, be from the rock itself. No  bill can be presented for collection.  Defalcations of a Methodist Treasurer  GALT, Ontario, January 17.���Thomas  McGiverin, who was arrested in Buffalo  on a charge of grand larceny, was treasurer of the Methodist church here. A  discovery was made by the trustees  some time ago that he was short in his  accounts. Investigation showed a defalcation of several thousands, money received for reduction of mortgage indebtedness having been appropriated and  covered up by forged vouchers.  Fort Steele Boys en Route  The Winnipeg Free Press of the 15th instant says: "Yesterday afternoon there  passed through the city a squad of thirty  new recruits en route to join tho Canadian  Mounted Rifles at. Halifax. The men wero  recruited by major Howe of the Northwest  Mounted Police and will replace a number  of the Canadian Mounted Rifles dismissed  by colonel Evans as unsuitable. They wero  unexpected in the city and only a few were  at the station to meet them. Prom Port  Steele was a party of sixteen, and as this  thriving burg had not a very largo representation with the llrst trainload of the  Canadian Mounted Rifles, they made ur>  for it by being pretty nearly the "whole  cheese," as they put it, with this crowd.  This party was composed of "Edward  Murphy, acting corporal; Georgo,G. Phillips, Charles N. Hughs, Patrick Ryan, William J.

What tho trade  would have done without the line samples  of apples that Canada has sent us it  would be difficult to Imagine. The Canadian  apple will make its appearance on many  million  tables during the  festive season."
