 ESABLISHED  1892  TUBSDA.Y  MORNING, JANUARY  21;  1902  DAILY EDITION  SECRET NOW OUT  BRITAIN ALONE BLOCKED  THE POWERS  AUSTRIA,  FRANCE, RUSSIA AND  GERMANY WERE AGAINST  THB UNITED STATES  LONDON, January 2t*���The subject of  the proposed European intervention in  the Spanish-American "war was brought  up by Henry Norman (Liberal) in the  house of commons this, afternoon, in  the form of a. question asking whether  any communication, proposing or concerning joint note or collective action  by the "European states in view of the  outbreak, or expected outbreak of the  late war between the United States and  Spain was received from the Austrian  or any other government. Mr. Norman  further invited lord Cranborne, under  secretary of foreign affairs, to lay the  papers in case on the table. Lord Cranborne in reply said no such communication had been made to the govern-  . ment after the outbreak of the war, but  that immediately before the war communications were received from other  powers suggesting the presentation of  a joint note to the president of the  United States.  Her majesty's. government agreed to  join with, the other power's joint note,  expressing the hope that further negotiations might lead to a peaceful settle-  Yrient, accompanied by guarantees acceptable to the United States for the  pieservation of order in Cuba. The government first took steps to ascertain  whether the presentatian of the note  as well as its terms would be acceptable  to the president. Her majesty's government,, lord Cranbbre continued, ,de-  clinedto associate itself with other subsequent proposals, which senied open to  the objection of putting pressure on the  government of the United States and  offering an opinion on its action. The  under' secretary cdnClMe"d"wiln "saying  he was unable to lay the papers in the  esse on the table.  This statement was received with a  burst :of ringing cheers, such as seldom  greet a member of parliament. Inquiries  made by the Associated Press concerning  the "subsequent proposals" mentioned by  lord Cranborne elicited important information from the foreign office. There it was  stated" that Great Britain has been twice  formally approached on this matter, but  only once after tho commencement of hostilities between Spain _uu the United  States, The occasion upon which Great  Britain deliberately set down her foot was,  according to the foreign oflice, when the  Austrian ambassador at London interviewed lord Salisbury and asked him if  Great 'Britain would be willing ot join in a  collective note from the European powers,  urging the United States to desist from  war with Spain. Lord Salisbury, so the representative of the Associated Press was informed, regarded this proposition a.s an  unwarrantable Interference in the affairs  of a friendly country and said so. The foreign ollice heard nothing more on the subject, the matter of a collective note apparently being dropped.  Regarding the'much disputed point as to  what powers were previously prepared to  sign this note, had Great Britain acquiesced thereto, a foreign office official makes  the following statement: "We have no  i=-doeumentary--evldence-.to_i*rovei=that^any=  power; other than the one which formally  approached us was concerned in this effort  to send a collective note to the United  States. We had at the time, however, every  reason to believe that France, Germany  niicl Russia were only waiting our assent  formally to announce their own. We have  never had reason to change that .belief  which, in tho case of Prance, amounts to  moral certainty,"  Tho first Important debate of tho session  began in the house of commons tonight on  an' amendment to the address moved by  Frederic Cawley, Liberal, in reply to tho  speech from the throne. The debate called  out Mr. Chamberlain, the colonial secretary, who vigorously tooic the field In defense of the war. He mado the significant  statement that if, as lord Rosebery's  speeeh intimated, the Boers could at any  time secure a repetition of lord Kitchener's terms he wished to Inform ttfom thai  thov were mistaken. Mr. Chamberlain added, however, that the government prn  gram   was   not   ono  ot  cxteimination.  _ays: "Every Englishman who caros  for the solidity of the empire must regret the misunderstanding existing between the admiralty at London and the  colony concerning the naval reserve  which the latter desires, but it is idle  to deny that a very large question is  involved, that of colonial contributions  to imperial defence. Such contributions  must be spontaneous, entirely voluntary, and must be an expression of the  conviction that the British fleet is  maintained as much for their defence  as ours.  A WHOLESALE JAIL BREAK  Eleven Criminals at Large  TACOMA, January 20.���Eleven of the  most desperate prisoners in the United  States penitentiary on McNeills island  made their escape between 1 and 2  o'clock on Sunday aKernoon, and up  to a late hour last night were still at  liberty. It was the most daring and  successful jail break ever attempted in  this state, and the character of the men  implicated, makes it doubtful whether  they will be retaken without loss of life.  The men at large are: W. D. Snyder,  Idaho robber; James Campbell, Nome  pickpocket; Thomas Morton, Nome burglar; Frank Ainsworth, Nome thief;  Mike William, Spokane counterfeiter;  Harry Davis, Nome; Frank Moran,  true name Ed O'Neill, Spokane counterfeiter; James Moriarty, Spokane counterfeiter; J. P. Stewart, Idaho counterfeiter; Bruce Kenwnght, Nome murderer; 'James Carroll, Alaska murderer.  A hole in the brick wall of cell No.  10, occupied by convicts Snyder and  Davis reveals the method of escape.  The hole was about a foot in thickness,'  and the floor of the cell" is of equal  thickness, being covered, with concrete.  A tunnel was dug at the junction of  the wall and floor, sloping outwardly  until it formed a connection with the  air chamber about two feet below, and  a foot outwardly from the corridor wall  of the cell. Through this air chamber,  the prisoners crawled about forty feet  to where it opened into the boiler room,  the opening being covered by an iron  grating. This obstacle was overcome  .by the use of saws and the prisoners  then had only to walk out of the back  door of the boiler room, across the  yard and scale the board fence. A few  yards from the prison grounds the dense  growth of timber afforded them temporarily a safe shelter.  The .prisoners took advantage of the  latitude allowed them during the dinner  hour to consummate their plans. The  guards, with the exception of two, who  were on duty on the wall overlooking  the corridor, were eating dinner in the  dining room. A dinner gang was at  work putting the tables in order and the  other convicts had the privilege of the  corridors. One by one, the men slipped  into cell No. 10 and crawled through  the hole unnoticed. When the guards  came out and lined the prisoners up  for dinner, eleven were missing. Warden Palmer at once sent a squad of  guards in pursuit and made a tour of  the island. With two launches, three  tow boats and thirty men guarding the  shore line, it is believed by the officers  that if the men are still on the island  at 9 o'clock last night, their escape will  be blocked.

The schooner Manila, which arrived 23  days from Honolulu, brought no news  of her, but her master reports that  when two hundred miles or so out from  the Hawaiian port a lot of wreckage  was passed. It, consisted of lumber  which looked very new. and white, as  though it was dressed material. Two  sticks were discernable, which looked  like the spars of some vessel. The Manila did not pass in close range of the  wreckage, and the captain is therefore  unable to give the description of vessel  to which it belonged.

Wilson, secretary-treasurer, showed a decrease of the  funds of $30,759 notwithstanding the increase from the per capita tax caused by  assistance paid to strikers and small  returns from the strike assessments.

Panama Canal Company to sell its rights  property and unfinished works to tho  "United States _or $40,000,000 be accepted'-  The senate ordered tho report printed ln  the congressional 'record' and also as a  document.  After quoting the correspondence which  passed   between   the   commission  and   the  Panama Canal Company in Paris the report  says:   "The totality,  without exception of  its  property  and rights   on   the   isthmus  mentioned In the cablegram of January 9th  includes the following classes of property:  First���Lands not built   on.   There   are   50  parcels of land, to which the title rests in  the canal company, amountlne to about 30,-  000 acres, which with the lands belonging  to  tlie railroad  company cover nearly all  of the ground required for the actual construction  of  the canal.  Seconds-Buildings.  There are scheduled 2431 buildings," divided  among 47  sub-classifications,  used-for offices,    store    houses,    quarters,  'hospitals,  shops, stables and miscellaneous purposes.

Of the existing 70,000,000" shares of the Panama railway the canal company will transfer to the United States ail-but a fractional  part. These latter are held by, a few Individuals   residing  in  various   parts   of   tho  United Slates and in Europe. At the par  value   of   the   shares   to   be   transferred  to the United States by the canal company,  the amount is $0,886,300. It owns three passenger and freight steamers on the American   registry   of  approximately  20,000  tons  net each. For the past year It has operated  a line of chartered steamers of American  registry between San Francisco and Panama. The steamers on the Atlantic and Pacific  constitute  the Panama Railroad and  Steamship Company being the joint own-  owns an undivided Interest In the islands  of Naos,  Culebra, Perlcla and Flamencoln  In   the  bay  of  Panama,   the  Pacific  Mall  Stheamship Company being the joint owners. Besides Its right of way, the terminals,  wharves and considerable areas of land, lt  owns; nearly the whole town of Colon, tho  houses being constructed under leases. Tho  work of constructing the canal will largely,  increase  the  business  of the railway and  will enable it to pay off Its liabilities in a  few years. Sixth���Maps, drawings and records. The estimated annual cost of maintenance and  operation is $1,300,000 greater  at Nicaragua than at Panama. The Panama route would be 134.G iniles jshorteiLthan  the Nicaragua "route-from sea to sea, wittt  fewer locks and  less  curves,  both  in  degree and miles. The estimated time for a  deep draft vessel to pass through the Nicaragua  canal   was   placed   at  33  hours   aa  against 12 hours for Panama, the estimates  being  the  time  for actual  nnvlgatlon and  not  including  delays   for  winds,   currents,  and  darkness.   If  the  passage  were  made  without Interruption about a day could bo  saved by the Nicaragua over tho Panama)  routo by ordinary steamers handling commerce between our Pacific and nil Atlnntlo*  ports nnd about two days by steamers of  the same class  trading between  the Gulf  ports   and   the   North   Pacific   ports.   Tho  time advantage of   the   Nicaragua   routo  would be loss in the ca-sc of the fast high  power steamers,   the  use of  which  is increasing.  Between  Atlantic  ports and tha  west coast of South America the Panama'  routo has the advantage of about two days  and between  the Gulf ports and  the west  coast of South America the Panama routo  has tho advantage of about one day.

The offer  received from the new Panama company to  convey Its property. Including all Its Interest In the Panama railway to the United  States will make the estimated cost of tha  two canals as follows: Nicaragua $189,-54,-  002 and  Panama $184,23:1,358.  For the purpose of permitting the new,  Panama Canal Company to enter upon tha  negotiations which have resulted in tho  present offer, Colombia has waived these)  prohibitions and has authorized the company to treat directly with the' United  States with a view to the use and occupation of the territory of the former company for canal purposes If tho United States  ogvernment should select the Panama  route for an Isthmian canal.  The report concludes as follows: "After  considering the changed conditions that  now exist and all the circumstances upon  which its present judgment must bo based,  the commission is of the opinion that tho  most practicable and feasible route for an  Isthmian canal, to be under the control,  management and ownership of the United  O.......

The province of Ontario, may be less  Socialistic in its tendencies than British  Columbia but U must be admitted that  in progressive legislation the staid old  province has altogether outstripped its'  younger rival. In Ontario it would appear as if its law-makers were in touch  with the people and alive to their necessities, and in addition have the  courage to take the initiative in radical  departures from fixed politics when in  their judgment such changes are war-  i anted. Federal interference has no  terrors for the Ontario legislator and  his powers are never limited by his  own   presumption.    When   some   years   _gP--t_hfJumbering_industry._of_the--Pro-.  vince was threatened by the export' of  saw-logs to the United States, the right  of the province to hamper such exports  was questioned by constitutional authorities.   But this did not deter Ontario's  ministers.    They   presumed   that   they  had tho right and  they legislated, and  thoir  right  to so  legislate was  afterwards conceded.   It was the same when  tho scheme was  launched  to build up  the great   nickel-steel   industry   in the  new Ontario.   All sorts of constitutional  and other obstacles were interposed by  those interested,  but Ontario's government jogged along unheeding, and to-  dny in the northern portion of the province there is now springing into being  what promises to be the greatest nickel-  steel   industry   in   the   world.    Ontario  has it because its government had the  foresight to take in its possibilities, and  the courage to foster it in the face of all  opposition.   Right in line with such action comes the assurance that inside of  two  years the government of Ontario  will have constructed and in operation  a purely provincial railroad which it is  proposed to build out of the enhanced  value which. its construction will give  to  the crown  lands  opened  up  by it.  This road is to be known as the Temiskaming and Northern Ontario and will  run from" North Bay to a point on lake  Temiskaming.     With   the   selection   of  the route for the new road the' government will make a reservation of 20,000  acres per mile of the crown lands and  from the sale of these lands it is confidently predicted  that the entire cost  of construction will be met.   The wildest Socialist in British Columbbia never  asked for a greater advance in provincial   railway  legislation  than  this,  but  the achievement in  Ontario  passes  almost without notice.  other portion of the Dominion but they  are playing the game of politics.    The  Manitoba  provincial  liquor  act,  which  the courts have just declared constitutional was none of their framing,    lt  was a  legacy which  came to  premier  Roblin from his successor Hugh  John  Macdonald.   It was enacted because the  majority of the people wanted it,  but  in the hope that the courts would step  in and relieve its framers from the responsibility  of enforcing it.    The  constitution has been the refuge of insincere politicians for a long time back,  but in the case of the Manitoba liquor  act it failed to afford the desired relief.  Instead of declaring the regulation of  the liquor traffic ultra vires of the province the courts have said in effect, that  the act is all right and capable of being  er forced, which brought premier Roblin and his ministers face to face with  the problem of electing a stand with the  Prohibitionists or   the   liquor   interest.  Premier Roblin  has  atempted  to  temporize by taking a plebiscite upon the  enforcement or non-enforcement of the  act,  but   the   Prohibionists   will   have  none' of it.   They want the government  to act, and the Grit opposition is meeting with very gratifying success in key-  . ing them up.    So greatly has the feeling been aroused in Winnipeg that, at  a recent meeting in Grace church the  attorney-general of the province was refused the opportunity to even explain  the  government's   position,   and   by   a  vote of 600 to 7.   This does not necessarily'mean that Manitoba is any nearer  prohibition than before.   It only goes to  show; that premier Roblin did not know  his liquor bill was loaded.

DiscussiDg the Tariff Bill  WASHINGTON, January 20. ��� The  debate on the Philippine tariff bill will  begin, in the senate tomorrow. In behalf of the majority of the committee  on the Philippines, chairman Lodge today reported the measure and gave notice that he would call it up at 2 o'clock  tomorrow. Mr. Rawlins (Utah), acting  for the majority of the committee, of-  ���ferred to substitute for the bill of the  majority and announced he would submit some remarks on it at the conclusion of Mr. Lodge's statement in support  o the majority report. During the  greater part of today's session, the  measure providing for the establishment of a department of commerce was  under consideration. An effort was  made by Mr. "Nfelson to secure a vote,  but the opposition to many provisions  in the bill became so strong that tho  effort had to be abandoned.  New Council's First Meeting  The first meeting of the newly elected  city council was held in the city hall last  evening. The chief business transacted was  the striking of the committees for the ensuing year, which were made up as follows:  Finance���Aldermen Hamilton, Irving and  Scanlan.  Public works���Aldermen Morrison, Scanlan and Selous.  Fire, water and light ��� Aldermen Selous,  Drew and Morrison.  Owing to the fact that the schools are  now under the jurisdiction of the city, the  appointment of another committee has been  rendered necessary, and to the committee  already mentioned a school committee was  appointed consisting of Aldermen Irving,  Drew and Scanlan.  The chief mutter of importance discussed  was in regard to the accommodation in the  city offices. The mayor in referring to the  matter observed that although the city was  not in as good a position at the present)  time to erect a new city hall such as the  requirements of the city called for, as they  would be in a couple of years, it was equally true that there wns not sufficient accommodation in the present quarters to efficiently perform the work, tie thought the  city was losing at least 30 per cent of the  ���efficiency of its staff by the present  crowded quarters.  After some discussion In reference, to the  option held by the city on the two~'adjoin-  ing lots, it was moved by alderman Selous  and seconded by alderman Irving that the  mayor be authorized to purchase-the lots  in question and that the city enginer prepare an estimate and plans of tho proposed  alterations and submit tlie same to the  next meeting of the council. The intention  appears to be to remove the partitions  from the present building, converting- it  into one room, which will be used as the  council chamber and police court. An addition will be erected at the rear in which  all the city staff will be located, their department being reached oy an entrance on  Victoria street.  Another matter which was introduced by  alderman Drew and seconded by alderman  Scanlan, was an instruction to tho city  clerk to ad-i��rtlse in the Montreal Star, Toronto Globe and the Nelson daily papers  for a tire chief, applications, for same to  be received until February 10th, which was  adopted  without discussion or division.  A communication was received from Dr.  Arthur, secretary of the school board, requesting the providing of funds for the  purchase of school furniture. In response  to the communication the council voted  the sum of $1000. finder the same head an  estimate was received for an additional  payment on tlio amount due the contractors  on the new school amounting to the sum of  $1023, and on the motion of aldermen Hamilton and Irving tho sum asked for was  voted.*'  A letter was received from architect Carrie requesting sewer connection to the additions in the Houston block, which was  referred to the city en_ineer.  During tho meeting alderman Selous suggested to tho mayor that a financial report,  In justice to the ratepayers, be made at this  meeting of the council. His worship intimated that it was impossible to do so at  the present time as the auditor was engaged on the public accounts and had not  been able to complete his work in time for  the meeting. The suggestion was then made  that some kind of n. statement might be  mado and in order to ascertain the prospect of this being done auditor McDermid  was called from the city clerk's office and  requested ^to-givc-a=statement.-_rn=replying:  to tho request ho slated he would do his  best to have the report ready for the next  meeting.

Hurricanes in Collision  'N12W YORK, January IS.���Tho British  steamer Adna arrived today from' China.  Japan and other places in tlie far east. Cap-  lain Smith says that from Ihe Azores to  this port ho had tempestuous weather and  relates an occurrence which ho says was  phenomenal. It . was a collision between  two hurricanes. His vessel had been experiencing heavy gales for 21' hours previous to this occurrence. At 11:15 a.m. on  tho 17th the wind was blowing with hurricane force from the south and a terrific  black storm from the north was seen to  approach rapidly when, at 11:55, it foil a  dead calm and the barometer wa.s 20 degrees. At noon precisely the two winds met  about a quarter of a mile from the vessel,  the impact of the winds could be seen to  churn the sea into foam and it became  rough and confused, rising tn a height of  50 feet above the level of the sea, presenting a most dangerous'appearnnee. The vessel got into the broken water, which came  tumbling over her in every direction, but  without doing much damage. The spring  of the steerage gear, was broken  and   tho  ��� stern post smashed. Tho son flooded the  steward's pan try and the stores were destroyed. After tho confusion the gale from  the north proved to be the stronger and  the wind, within a few minutes, was Mowing With hurricane force from that direction, and by 2 o'clock in the'nfternoon the  sea was running mountains high.

Now  the Tories arc; scenting lho rush to mean  a short session and a. dissolution.  The prohibition question Is said to be the  reason for the rush, for if an early election were held there would not be the opportunity to organize on the question, and  it would not play such an important pari  in  the elections.

Colorado, January  20.���A courier has just reached here  from Pictou, a coal mining camp. 3  miles from Waisenburg, bringing news  that a terrible explosion occurred in one  of the mines operated by the Colorado  Fuel & Iron Company at that place  this morning, in which six men were  instantly kijled and Ipn orl (more  wounded, many of them perhaps fatally.  The mine immediately caught fire and  is now a seething furnace.  Only a Question of Place  CONSTANTINOPLE, January 20.���  The United States minister, John G. A.  Leishman says: "tlie brigands who abducted Miss Ellen Stone and madame  Tsilka on September 3 have agreed to  acciept the amount of ransom raised by  subscription. The place of payment is  now the only question unsettled."  Every Taxpayer a Miner  The decision of tho supreme court; giving  the city of. Lcad.villo, Colorado, the right  to the mineral under its streets, says tlie  Denver Republican, is an important victory to that town. It will probably greatly  add to its revenue and thus reduce taxation  on private property.  When Leudvillo was laid out the mines  were far away on the hills to tho cast of  the main part of the city. Gradually exploitation extended tho mineral area westward until today mines aro operated clearly within tlio down, town limits. The city  asserted a claim lo all the mineral found  beneath the surface of the street, but the  mining companies resisted tlie-claim. It has  now at last been decided in favor of the  town.  In thus being the owner of tho producing  mines Leadville will occupy a unique position among the cities of the country, for  mining is not ordinarily not a'municipal  function. It makes it a fortunate place  for tlio street area Is extensive, and il may  be that much valuable mineral ground may  be disclosed in the course of future development. The mine owners will not be retarded in their search.for ore by the fact  that part of what they discover may be  shown to belong to the city". '  It is an interesting problem how far toward tho west the mineral bearing area  extends. There seems to be no good reason  v.'hy.it may not cover practically the limits of tho entire municipality. .The .wliole  town will henceforth have a deeper interest  in the development of the mines, for in one  sense every taxpayer will bo a miner.

Sonic  months ago premier Ross practically announced In Middlasox that tbe elections  would lake plnce in Juno, but there is every  reason to believe in the light or recenli  events that lion. Mr. Ross' announcement  will  not  ho l'uimiod.  Men who arc usually in the confidence of  tho government will say nothing when  asked when tlie elections will he held. They  prefer to keep quiet. Members on the government side ol" the house are reticent, and  sire unusually uncommunicative when asked  about the caucus meeting last week.  Tory members of the legislature have  noticed a stir among tlio Grits of their ridings and believe thul the word bus gone out  that the elections will bo held early and  they should he ready for the political fray.  Tlie general opinion seems to be that instead of June the elections will take place  at   the end of March.  No matter when the elections are I" lie  held, one thing has been noticeable since  th opening of the house, and that is the  readiness of tho government to get along  with   the  business.

GOSSIP OF THE REVIEWS  Concerning Two Continents  A writer in the New York Tribune  quotes a. popular gentleman as saying:  "I was placed in a most uncomfortable  position last night. A woman to whom  1 was indebted for many a pleasant dinner, whose daughter had just come out,  called to me just as I was leaving the  B's dance. 'I am going to be perfectly  frank with you, Mr. Brown, and I know  you will Understand it,' she said. 'My  Mabel has no partner for the cotillion.'  Now, :what was I to do? I had a most  important piece of work to accomplish  early the next morning, and 1 knew if  1 stayed I would be a wreck, so I was  obliged to say so, and make my apologies, which were very coldly received,  indeed, and I know she will never forgive me." The writer adds: "Sensible  girls are making a joke of the situation,  which they see is not the fault of the  young men and which does not arise  from a want of appreciation of their  charms, and, when partners are lacking,  they dance 'stag' with equanimity.  This consists in taking the seat of cotillion leader allotted to them, and  choosing a partner to dance with them  when their turn comes, a much better  arrangement than to go home disconsolate, or wait for their carriage in the  dressing room, which formerly seemed  to be .their only resource. It is a great  nity that German fashions are not followed in this country. There a very  late dance is over by one o'clock, and  dinners arc relatively early."  Diplomatic Washington has found  . much to say concerning the gallantry  of Herr von Hpllebcn, the German ambassador, to lady Pauncefote, wife of  the British ambassador. At the New  Year's reception at the White House,  lord Pauncefote, dean of the diplomatic  corps, was expected to attend and "lead  the corps into the Blue Room. An attack of gout kept the ambassador at  home, but to do honor to the chief executive of the Unitecl States, lady  Pauncefote," the Misses Pauncefote, and  the staff of the embassy, decided to call  at the White House. The fact of  Pauncefote's absence soon became  known to the diplomats. It caused no  special remark, as, under the universal  rule, the senior diplomat immediately  assumes the place of clean in the latter's  absence. The wife of an ambassador  has no place in diplomacy, and only by  courtesy is she accorded the post next  to him on the occasion of the official  ceremonies. However, when the German embassador heard of lord Pauncefote's illness, he graciously allowed  lady Pauncefote, her daughters and the  embassy staff to take precedence. She  was therefore, the first to extend New  Year greetings to the president and Mrs.  Roosevelt and the ladies of the receiving party. Von Holleben and his secretary came after the junior secretary of  the British embassy, Cambon, the  French embassador, and his staff fol-  "l-Wing"Herr^von=-Holleben.^_-_-_-_______.,  An invalid who had been in the country for her health, and was ordered to  continue the "fresh air cure," even after  she had returned to the city, describes in  the Atlantic Monthly some of the amusing experiences which came to her  through the unrepresscd curiosity of the  public. She took her place on the sidewalk, in the sun, with steamer-chair  and rugs, expecting to "live and let  live." But she was destined to learn  something about human nature before  the day ended. She writes: "Nursemaids who have children out for an airing discuss me in the soothing tones  supposed to be adapted to infant ears,  and in the midst of my reading I hear  murmurs: "Yes, yes, a lady out taking  the sun. Nice sun for the lady. Will  do the lady good.' Homeless dogs and  friendless children shelter themselves  about my chair to rest. I am of groat  use to the organ-grinders, acting as the  nucleus of a quickly gathering crowd. 1  serve as an intelligence office, and receive constant inquiries as to where  people live, whether I kow any one who  would like to hire a servant, and  whether I know of servants who wish  to hire."  It appears that society in England,  from king Edward down, is much perplexed over sir Thomas Lipton and his  challenging for the American cup. "Sir  Thomas is ready to challenge again, and  yet again, for the trophy," remarks  Harper's Weekly; "but he is willing to  give way to another, if that other is  ready. Then it would seem from the  somewhat heated reports that come to  us, that the Royal Yacht Squadron is  looking for a man to build a boat to  challenge under its auspices. That is  good, too. We like the Royal Yacht  Squadron in this country. It comprises  a group of sportsmen as fine in their  metal as the world contains. We like-  Sir Thomas, too. He may sell tea but  they say it is good tea. At all events, he  builds good boats, he fights a good  sportsmanlike fight, and he takes his  beating with a genial smile, a word of  praise for the winner, and a statement  that he will try, try again. But rumor  further says that the Royal Yacht  Squadron will have none of sir Thomas  and that If the king wants to urge him  on the squadron, the squadron, or part  pf it, will get up and cross the street  THE CANADIAN  BANK OF COMMERCE  WITH WnlOH IS AMALGAMATED  THE BANK  OF  BRITISH COLUMBIA.

IMPERIAL BANK  OB1   C_b.3Sr__D__  ONTARIO TAKES THE LEAD  "Will Build a Government Road  All doubt as to whether Ontario is to  have a provincial railroad into the  Temiskaming district has been removed  by the introduction of a bill into its  legislature providing for the immediate construction of the line. Lumber  limits along the line of the road and  elsewhere in the district of Nippissing  will be set aside to the extent of 20,009  acres per mile of the proposed road. In'  this way it is expected that the province  will be completely indemnified for the  construction and equipment of the railway, and the bill does not ask the legislature for any cash grant whatever.  "We will be running trains over the  road inside two years," says premier  Ross.  The railway is to be known as the  Temiskaming and Northern Ontario  Railway. Its construction and management is to be placed in the hands  of a commission of not less than three  or more than five persons. The road  is to run from North Bay to a point on  Lake Temiskaming. lt may acquire  reciprocal running powers and equitable traffic arrangements with any  other railway with which  it connects.  The railway is to be built as far as  practicable of material made and purchased in Canada. No alien is to be  employed on the road. A clause provides that the workmen are to receive  the current rate of wages. The committee will have power to issue debentures for the construction and  maintenance of the road. The revenue  derived is to be used in paying interest, in establishing a sinking fund to  meet the debentures as they mature,  and any surplus after meeting other  expenses will be paid into the treasury of the province.  ARTIC   CIRCLE   RAILWAYS  Will Assist Quartz Mining  When it was announced that E. C.  Hawkins was going into a big railway  deal, there was much comment heard.  The news now comes from Dawson that  he hoped to build an electric road to  Grand Forks. A report from Klondike  says, however, "the option on the charter secured by the builder of the White  Pass road has been declared to have  expired by its own limitation of time,  and-therefor.e-the_transfer_-to-,lie.utenant  Adair and th�� men behind him will  hold. The railway is to tap the quartz  between Dawson and the Forks, and  to bring to town the necessary rock to  keep the mills riming next summer as  they ai-e running this winter."  "In anticipation of the building of the  road, the whole of Klondike City has  been bought up, and any odd pieces of  property now moving are going at an  advanced figure. This has been done  in anticipation of the town across the  river being made the terminus of the  railway as was the plan originally when  in 1898 the road was under way, and  the grade was all built. However, the  conditions arc modified today, and the  requirements are now for at least a  branch which is more necessary that  a quartz mill is already erected here,  and more arc anticipated for the coming  summer.  "The road, which is to bo graded this  winter and the iron laid immediately  on the resumption of navigation in the  spring, is to be an electric one, the overhead system having been decided upon  for the present. The terminal buildings are to be in Klondike City. A  branch is to be constructed from the  Forks to the Victoria mines, as well as  to several other veins located on Bonanza lower down.  "Lieutenant Adair is very reticent  about the road and its plans. The conflict over the charter seems to have been  amicably arranged as the promised suit  in the local court has failed to materialize.  "The building and maintenance of  government roads prevent any possibility of the maintaining of any such rates  as the road was empowered to charge  when the charter was first obtained.  Freight is now hauled to Sulpher for  less than the original two cents per  pound allowed to be charged to the  Forks, and the promoters declare that  there is no intention on their part to  make any such charge. Clearly such  a charge would defeat itself, at any  rate in the winter time, when ore is being hauled to town for the fraction of a  cent.  '.'It is not denied that the present activity of the long dead railway scheme  in the result of the assurance which has  been given lately of the genuineness of  the quartz development of the country.

Indeed.it  lifts the building of the road out of the  realm of speculation entirely, for there  is no element of chance about it. The  quartz has to be brought down to where  there is an abundant supply, of water,  and the nearest supply is the Klondike.  If the ore is to be brought that far it  might as well continue on to town���  as most of it probably will.  Territorial engineer Thibedeau has  submitted a report to' governor Ross  that an overland trail can be made from  Dawson to Selkirk and on to White  Horse, which .will afford constant communication with the outside the year  round and will be particularly valuable  when the river is not solid and is unfit  for travel. He says 60 miles can be  saved as compared to the all-river winter route. The trail will have to be 276  miles long, and will cost, the engineer  says, not to exceed $320 a mile. The  engineers has also recommended 44  miles of road to complete a road from  White Horse to the Big Salmon camp.  This short piece would save 91 miles.

The  shares which have a par value of ��5  are now quoted at ��4 3-16, and as a disposition to unload is suspected should  the market advance it is not thought  any such advance will' be made until  the actual showings * of the property  warrant it.  The comments of the financial press  upon the report of director Frecheville  were favorable to the new Le Roi management, but they did not save the  stock from the greatest slump in its  history. The following extracts express  the general tenor of the press comments:  "Financial Times:" Mr. Frecheville's  report on the property of the Le Roi  Mining Company explains why shareholders have received only one 5 per  cent dividend, and also elucidates the  selling by those stock exchange operators who a few months ago bought  to secure the control. According to Mr.  Frecheville the concern has been  shamefully mismanaged, and, while a  good mine, is not, so far as is proved  by present developments, the extra  magnificent, property which it was supposed to be. Shareholders need not  be discouraged, but, at the same time,  highly sanguine expectations must be  modified. Mr. Frecheville anticipates  that when certain economies have been  egected there will be profits at the rate  of ?2.75 per ton, and says the full capacity of the furnace plant, when completed, will be from 1,200 to 1,500 tons  of ore per day. On this basis shareholders might feas6nably^expect*"later-  on to get annual dividends of 20 per  cent, and this might make about ��8 a  fair value for the share, the nominal  value of whicli is ��5. Were those who  nought for control to release, as they  apparently desire to do, this market  value might presently be established.  At present they are a damper on the  market. They do not attempt to sell  at the present low price, but it is understood that they would promptly take  advantage of a substantial rise to do  so, not. being satisfied with their bargain. Other holders may therefore expect to see their shares depressed, perhaps for a rather long period, but with  the improved management which Mr.  Frecheville's report promises they  should receive a good rate of interest  on the current market value.  "Financial News:" In the exhaustive report which Mr. Frecheville has  made on the property and the late management of the Le Roi Mining Company the ore reserves laid open in the  mine are estimated at 483,872 tons, valued at $5,626,163, or roughly ��1,125,000.  This is apart from the second-class ore  dump, which is said to represent an asset of about ��20,000. Mr. Frecheville  states that after the exhaustion of the  existing ore reserves the future of the  mine will mainly depend on the results  to be obtained by development work to  the deep on the Middle Vein. In this  connection it is encouraging to note  that the pay-chute now being opened  out on the 9th level west of Combination Shaft has an assay value of $15.75.  A STRAIGHTFORWARD PLATFOBM.

Broken Political Boss  NEW YORK, January 20.���Tho mutations of American politics, exemplified  in the retirement of Croker, frequently  offer contrasts which point an obvious  moral. As the Tammany chieftain,  opulent from the spoils of power, withdraws-to enjoy its ease and luxury, a  poor old man who one wielded a sway  almost as potent passes along Broadway, broken in physical and mental  health and virtually a pauper.  He is John I. Davenport, of "Blocks  of Five" renown, once military secretary to general Benjamin P. Butler,  afterward the mailed-first ruler of the  Republican machine in New York.  " Time was when Davenport boasted  that he made and spent $50,000 a'year.  Today he timidly went, as he has gone  on many other days, to the offlce of an  old-time friend.in one of the big down  town buildings, to receive his usual  allowance of alms. And in the streets  where he once was pointed to as one of  the illustrious now no one knows him  as he passes.  Davenport lives miserably in a little  flat in One Hundred and Sixty-sixth  street. Daily he leaves it and walks  tho miles that lie between his home and  the office of his friend in City Hall  park. He is tremulous with palsy, and  he speaks like a child, although he is  not yet 60 years old.  lt was just after the civil war that  Davenport became a factor in New  York politics. A national law, applicable only to this city, gave him.a place  equivalent to that occupied now by superintendent of elections McCullagh.  His way of protecting the purity of  elections was to lock up electors. He  captured thousands of Democratic voters and locked them up in iron cages  in the corridor of the post office. It. was  rot done in malice. He cared nothing  for his inability to convict the men  lecked up, AH he wanted was to keep  them away from .the" polls���and this he  usually did.       . ���  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  t,.^_S5____a_5__a__i,_a>_S'  �� ^C->-*^ "--^ 0tQm 0*00*- -^^p Tin  nTf-   nf  ����� ^^09-0? >0*?��'.09 -00^S^  .��____��_�����_�����_��  %(  to  to  to  ft  &  ESTABLISHED 1892  &-  Portland Cement  Fire Brick  Fire Clay-  Sheet Iron  T Rails  Ore Cars  Blowers  Exhausters  Pumps  Graniteware  'Tinware  ������9-  HARDWARE AND IRON MERCHANTS  HEATING STOVES  COOKING STOVES  AND  RANGES  -*.NELSON, B.C.

This  Big Machinists Strike Threatened  CHICAGO, January 20.���Railroads in  every part of the country- are threatened  with serioii- trouble as the result of the  announcement of the intention of the  machinists employed iii their shops to  strike this spring. ' Preparations for the  strike are well under way, and unless  the companies agree to the terms demanded by members of the union the  prospect, is that the repair shops will  be tied up. Announcement of the intention of the machinists was made by  vice president Conlon ' of Washington,  in an address delivered before the  members of local union No. 30 in Mil-  vaukee, when he declared the ��� men  demanding a nine-hour day and the ad-  c ption of the union. wage scale which  would vary with the various districts  in the country. In another month the  demands of the machinists are to be  submitted to the railroads, and unless  agreed upon to a strike will be declared  on May 1st. . - ���'���        -  Expect Fits to Fight Again  NEW YORK, January 20.���Bob Fitzsimmons has.received a direct offer to re-enter  the ring and is now considering it. Martin Julian, who is said to be interested in a  boxing club in Philadelphia, a few days ago  offered Fitzsimmons .strong inducements to  take on J op Choynski in a, six round bout_  "av tlitropcnin'g tit tlie ClUb 6'n January "2_th.  Fitzsimmons and Martin" quarrelled more  than two years ago, and have just begun  speaking to each other again. Mrs. Fitzsimmons, who Is Julixn's sister, has all  along been opposed to Flt'z's re-eniering the  ring, and it was to her that Julian principally addressed himself. Julian is satislicd  that his brother-in-law wants to light again  and impressed on him that a bout with  Choj nsKi would be a good trial in anticipation of a match with Jeffries. Since receiving Julian's otter FilzSihimons has been  doing hard road work around Bath Beach  and Coney Island. Tom O'Rourke said today that if Fitzsimmons anil Jeffries were  n.ntcliod lie would put in a bid for the light,  with an ample guarantee that he could pull  it olt' within six miles of New York City  Hall. "I have my choice of two places,"  said O'Uourlce, "and can seat 10,twu spectators iu either one. For those who want to  sec Jeffries and Kltsutlinmunx light a railroad trip of an hour or >\> would amount to  nothing.
