 ESABLISHED  1892  TUESDAY MOKtflNG,  JANUARY 28,  1902  DAILY EDITION  ITWASCBIMAL  MARQUIS  OF DUFFERIN'S  OPINION  WAS NOT A PARTY TO WHITTA-  KER WRIGHT'S RISKY STOCK  EXCHANOE SPECULATIONS  LONDON, January 27.���-On the resumption today in the bankruptcy court  of the inquiry into the affairs of tho  London Globe Finance Corporation, the  receiver read a letter from the marquis  of Dufferin, tlie former governor-general  of Canada, and ambassador at Paris,  denying that he had been a party to  Whittaker Wright's speculations, which  had resulted in losses amounting to  ��70,000. His lordship said he would  have considered himself highly criminal  had he allowed the shareholders money  thus to he gambled away, and he, added,  that on his recovery from his present  illness he proposed to offer himself for  examination in order to confirm the  above statements. The receiver announced that he did not propose to  trouble lord Dufferin to attend the inquiry as he did not think his lordship  could add anything to the information  which he had already given to the investigators.  The examination of lieutenant general  the honorable Somerset J. Gough-Col-  thrope, one of Whitaker Wright's co-  directors, furnished endless amusement.  After saying he had properly purchased  his holdings in the company, general  Gough-Colthrope admitted that he knew  practically nothing of city finance. .He  had such perfect faith in Whitaker  Wright that he followed him blindly.  When the London.& Globe lost ��70,000  .in Lakevicw speculation the general  knew nothing about it.. When �� 75,000.  was given to the British American Corporation he thought.the London ���& Globe  was so wealthy that it could afford such  ��� a gift. The general did jnot consider  it his duty to exercise control over Whi-  - taker'Wright. -Th-TWitnens������was--prir..-���.  cipally occupied in ;so.mahy thousand  share certificates.   .. .    -  Lord Edward Relham-Clinton, another  of the directors who had just, some off  duty as groom in ���waiting to the king,  also said he purchased his shares of  the London & Globe' with his own  money but knew practically nothing of  Whitaker Wright's speculations, but  supposed they were safe in Wright's  hands.  A Memorial to "Father Pat"  ROSSLAND, January 27.���Thomas F.  Wooderman, aged 67 years, died Sunday  It is believed that two sons reside on  the Coast; but the authorities have no  Rossland friends have subscribed a  substantial sum toward erecting a memorial to the memory of the late Rev.  W. H. Irwin, widely known throughout  the Kootenays as "Father Pat."  The weather for the past four days  has been the coldest in the history of  Rossland. The mercury has hovered  about zero during te day, dropping as  low as ten degrees below zero during the  night.    Cashier Middleton Suicides  WINNIPEG, January 27.���A Dawson  special dispatch to the Free Press says:  "Thomas Middleton, cashier in the gold  commissioner's office, committed suicide  by cutting his throat with a razor at  11:30 today. He belonged to Leeds,  England, and was in a bank in Halifax  before coming here in 1899. Middleton  had not been in his oflice for several  days. His accounts are short over $3000.  His defalcation and suicide have created  a great sensation, everyone believing  him to be above suspicion. He -was so  worried that it is thought he was temporally, insane when he committed the  rash act.  More Wrecks Feared  VICTORIA, January 27.���The steamer  Queen City, which arrived at Alberni  tonight, reports that Indians at Ahou-  sette have found a boat which is believed to be one of the missing Condor's.  News of other wreckage is reported by  the Queen City, the finding of which  will cause grave anxiety for the salmon  ship Red Rock, which sailed from Royal  Roads on November 25th, four days before the gale which sank the Mattewan.  One of her life buoys was found at Clay-  oquot as well as some cases of salmon,  a hardwood stanchion, and house doors.  Big Real Estate Deal  WASHINGTON, January 27. ��� The  senate today, in executive session, received the treaty with Denmark, transferring the West India possessions of  that country to the United States. The  exact consideration specified in the  treaty to be paid by this country is  $5,000,000. The senate ratified the extradition treaty .with Servia, and the  trade mark treaty with Guatemala.  Ib Not Cold in Death  VANCOUVER, January 27.���Those  Vancouverites who at the presentation  of the Mrs. Powell mystery shrugged  skeptic shoulders, and with elevated  brows observed that there was no occasion for double-locking doors or carrying revolvers, appear to have been  . prophets in their day and generation.  The air of tragedy that has hung like  a pall over the Powell home for six  weeks past has lifted with the intima  tion from Seattle that the mysteriosly  missing housewife was seen there less  than a week ago���alive and to all appearances enjoying perfect health. The  person who gives this information to  the police was sufficiently well acquainted with Mrs. Powell to be sure that eyes  did not deceive in the matter of identification. As there was no opportunity  for conversation at the time, there still  remains.a mystery, as to why she went  away���together with several other incidental particulars.  BIO IEGAL FIGHT STARTED  Minnesota Opposing the Deal  WASHINGTON, January 27.���In the  United States supreme court today, attorney general. Douglas of Minnesota,  renewed his motion for leave to file a  bill of complaint on behalf of the state  against the Northern Securities Company in the matter of the merging of  the Northern Pacific railroad with other  railroads. W. D. Guthrie, for the Northern Securities Company, filed a brief  with the court outlining that company's  position. He contended that the bill of  complaint proposed to be filed on behalf of the state of Minnesota does not  prevent a controversy of a civil and  judicial nature between a state and a  citizen of another state being justifiable  in this court, and that no state can call  upon this court to enforce its penal  or police laws in other states. Hence  this court is without jurisdiction. The  bill asks the court, he said, to restrain  by injunction a citizen of New Jersey  from doing there, acts which are entirely lawful according to her laws and  are sanctioned by her statutory policy, simply because those acts violate  or evade or tend to circumvent the public or penal or police laws of Minnesota,  the complainant state. He contended  that the injunction prayed for would be  nothing more or less than an- order  compelling the securities company to  obey in New Jersey the laws of Minnesota.  Sympathy From Rossland  ROSSLAND, January 27.���At a meeting of citizens to consider the Rev. H.  W-. Irwin (Father Pat) memorial tonight, the announcement .of the ; death  of J.

It was unanimously  resolved that a resolution of condolence  'from "the citizens of Rossland -should ;l>e'  drafted ahd forwarded to" the bereaved  family.

NEW YORK, January 27.���An explosion has occurred in the "excavation ;for  the new rapid transit tunnel at Park  avenue, near 42nd street. One of those  killed was J. Roderick Robertson of  Nelson, B. C. He was a' guest of"-the'  Murray Hill hotel, and was killed'in'his  room. The number, injured is now* estimated at 75, many pedestrians:being  hurt by flying debris. The-accident was  caused by the explosion of: a--', large-  amount of dynamite. . . ";;    .;'.: .*-������'  A quantity of dynamite stored In a  temporary structure at 40th. street I and  Park avenue, which-was usedvby j'con-..-  tractors on the Rapid Transit tunnel,  exploded.    The shock Of the" explosion  was felt, in all large buildings in the  neighborhood.   All the windows in the;  south side of the Grand Central station  were broken, as were those in Grand  Union hotel, the Murray. Hill hotel, the  Manhatan eye and ear hospital, and the.  hospital for ruptured and crippled children, all of which are near the place  where the dynamite was stored.   Every  private house in the neighborhood felt  the shock.    Lamp posts were knocked  down, pedestrians were cut, by falling  glass, and cab men and cab horses were  thrown to the ground.  - The Murray Hill hotel suffered most  of    all    the    neighborhood    buildings.  Through the windows  huge  pieces  of  timber,   known   as   "Needling" .beams,  were sent as if they had been arrows:  All "of   the   workmen   within   several  blocks of 60th street were hurt. . One  man, Hamilton Jones, was blown nearly:  350 feet,, but was not killed:    He was  rescued by a fireman, who found, him  badly cut up and bruised, but able-to  talk.   Qnly a. few of the injured �� were  badly hurt.. Many were cut by;falling  'glass and ��� were able 'to- go" to ; their  homes^after the wounds had been dressed'by ambulance surg-ons.'"^-The quan-"-  tity of high explosives that went off; and?  the" cause^ of: explosion  have  not yet  been determined.   One-report-was that a  stone  was   dropped  into the -chamber  where the explosives were stored, and  that  the boiler of 'the hoisting plant  had blown up in a second  explosion.  The force generated by the main explos-?  ion was tremendous.    It  tore   open  a  great mine in the street and sent, a mass  of earth, splintered wood and broken  iron high into the air.    Part of this  crashed into the front of the Murray  Hill hotel, and the shock broke every  window and wrecked many of the front  rooms.   Plastering  was   stripped  from  the walls   and   carpets   torn   up.    The  areas of every residence in the locality  and the sidewalks were sprinkled with-:  broken   glass.     Twenty-eight   injured  were taken from the Murray Hill hotel  to be dressed by ambulance surgeons or  hurried away to hospitals.   About fifty  patients and nurses in the Manhattan  hospital were slightly injured.   A large  force of men were Immediately set to  work clearing: away-;.Wreckage. Broken  water mains were pouring a torrent of  water into the..tunnel-shaft, and it was  feared there would Wa a cave-in.  NEW   YORK/   Jahuary   27.���[Night  report of Associated Press.]���An explosion in "the Park avenue  shaft   of  the  Rapid   Transit   tunnel   in   this   city,  shortly after  noon's/today,  caused  the  death   of   six   persons,   at   least   one  hundred were injured, and serious damage was done to; property, including the  Murray. Hill hotel,-Manhattan--.eye and  ear  hospital,   Grand .Union  hotel   and  Grand   Central   station   on  East  42nd  street.   J, Rodericks Robertson,- or Nelson,, was killed T>y|: debris hurled into  his room in the Murray Hill hotel.   He  was, general  manager  for the  British  Columbia Goldflelds] Company.   The approach to   the   strjeet   railway   tunnel,  used by the; Madisiih avenue line, cuts  through   Park"'avenue,   and   the  shaft  for the Rapid Transit subway was run  down beside it,at the intersection used  for the operating;?plant of-the Rapid  Transit (.contractors.   Temporary buildings for storage purposes, in which a  quantity 'of explosives were stored, werei  thrown  up  against  the" superstructure  at the mouth of-^the shaft, and there  the explosion occurred.   It tore a great  .gorge in the street and demolished the  temporary/ buildings  and  part  of jthe  superstructure, and sent a mass of earth;  timber and iron high into the air.   Much  of it went against the front of the Murray Hill hotel, and although-the walls  and-main   structure   of   that   building  stood the shock;-'nearly every room in  the front of the House was wrecked. The  ��� Manhattan eye and ear hospital, on the;I  east, side "of the avenue had to be abandoned.   The windows, and glass partitions in .the: Grand "Union hotel and .the  Grand! Central station were shattered.  The clocks on the front towers of. the  station were  blown  from  their  cases.  Thousands of windows, some of them  blbcks  from   the   tunnel   shaft /were  ^..broken, and the ishpwer of broken glass  and-.falting;debils injured a gjeat number, ibf people.- Every: available- ambu--"  lance  in: .the  district -was  quickly  on  -the scene, and numbers of the injured  were treated on the spot.  The cause of the explosion is not  definitely known. Several have been  advanced but it will probably: take an  official, inquiry to clear the mater up.  .The most plausible was that a fire  started near- the powder room in which  a quantity of dynamite was stored. ��� It  is believed that mechanic ^William Tubbs  was killed, after making a desperate  atempt to quench the fire before it  leached the explosives.  District attorney Jerome visited the  scene at once and commenced an investigation. He examined witnesses who  told conflicting-stories, and as a result  Ira A. Shallock, engineer in charge of j  the work at Park avenue, John Bracken,  foreman, and Martin McGrath, an assistant foreman, were placed under arrest charged with homicide.  The  damage   may   exceed   $1,000,000.  The first estimate in the Murray Hill  hotel placed the loss at $100,000, but  later the building-was abandoned: as  unsafe. If the building is condemned,  the loss on it will reach $1,000,000.; The  fortunately the explosion.occurred at  an hour when not more than a hundred  people were in the main waiting* room  of the Grand Central station. Some of  these were slightly' injured by falling  glass.: Four" ticket sellers were cut with  the flying slivers. The ofilces of the  New York Central did not suffer as  much as the New Haven offices. President Newman was at .his desk at the  time of the explosion.  NEW'YORK, January 27���There was  a clash in court this afternoon between  district .attorney Jerome and coroner  Golddenkranz. The coroner had empanelled a jury and listened to an affidavit by a patrolman who said he had  arrested the three men, and that there  had been an explosion. Mr. Jerome insisted that there was no information in  the affidavit on which" to hold anybody,  and there was a wordy wrangle between  . the two officials. In spite of protests  the: coroner gave the case to the jury-'  . men, "who retired and came back" with a  verdict, recommending the discharge of  the prisoners. The coroner then opened  court as a sitting magistrate, and had  the men re-arrested and held them  without bail. Mr. Jerome protested and  the coroner changed his decision, holding the men in $10,000 bail each.  All this had worked up the feelings  of. everybody so much that there was  a free fight, in which Mr. Jerome was  struck in the face by John Murray, a  coroner's clerk, who in turn was beaten  by two of the district attorney's detectives. .Then the detectives and Murray  had, each other arrested, but better  counsel prevailed and all charges withdrawn-for the present.  ��� Andrew Murray was tonight locked up  at a /police station, though .no charge  was placed against him on the blotter.  Murray had charge Of passing out the  ���.sticks ,of dynamite* to the man in the"  .tunnel who were" engaged -in. blasting.  '������He'4aid-'--thef"e"'we-e> about twenty, sticks  of dynamite in the shanty when the explosion occurred.  Moses Epps, who was a powder man:  in charge of the shanty where the explosion occurred, is at Flower hospital,  ��� suffering from contusion "and shock.  :He*said that on going to the shanty  about "noon he found a candle which he  had left lighted "on a shelf, lying on the  floor and some paper which was about  it was on fire. . Close to this burning  paper were 13 boxes of dynamite cartridges, each box containing 60" to 75  cartridges. Epps threw." a pailful of  water over the fire and ran to get another one. On coming back with it,  ���he saw that the flames were close to  the dynamite, and dropping his pail he  tried to get away. Then came the explosion and the next he knew he was  a patient in the hospital.- This evening  Epps was practically a prisoner, a -policeman having been assigned to guard  him.  NELSON'S EDUCATION BILL  Makes Alderman Selous Uneasy  Last evening the second meeting of the  city council was held, the mayor and all  members of the council being present. The  principal Item of business was. the consideration of the estimate of the school board,  which is as follows:  Estimate for high school���Principal, $1290;  assistant teacher for last half of year, .$450;  insurance, $120; janitor, $150; fuel, $200; total for high school, $2210.  Estimate for public school���Principal,  $1200; first assistant, $900; second assistant,  $810; third assistant, $720; fourth assistant,  $CC0; fifth assistant, $600; sixth assistant!  last half of year, $300; primary teacher  $900; Insurance, $1(J0; janitor, $510; fuel, $500;  secretary ol' school boara, $100; contingent  fund, $1000; total for public schools, $8480.  Total for both schools, $10,690.  There is $1200 additional to this amount  for furnishing, $1000 of which has already  been paid, making a total estimate for  school purposes for the year of $11,S90.  Alderman Selous thought that the- secretary of the board should have been present  while the estimate was oeing considered,  as there were a number of matters which  it was of importance the council should  know, such as a comparison of the present'  estimate with that of previous years.  The mayor remarked that the item of  $1000 for contingencies came a little high  and was of the opinion that while they  could only deal with items respecting salaries by passing them, he thought it better  to refer tho estimate to the school committee to confer with the board and report at  the subsequent meeting.  Alderman Hamilton claimed that tn regard to the matter of salaries they wero  obliged to pay them and had no say in the  matter, and as far as the contingent fund  was concerned all they could do was to refuse to pass the item, which "would then  have   to  be  submitted  to  the  ratepayers.  Alderman Selous inquired if the school  board had volunteered the information as  to tho amount the city were entitled to receive from the government.  The information was suplled by the city  clerk, who stated that the amount based  on last year's estimates was $4300.  Alderman Selous then made an estimate  that the education of the 250 children now  attending the public school was at the rate  of $25 per head, and complained that It was  too high, and that the school staff was  larger than there was any need for.  In this alderman Selous was supported  by the mayor, who suggested that a better  plan would be to adopt that followed in  other cities by paying the teachers larger  salaries and giving them more work. However, that was none of their business, as  the board were as much responsible to the  ratepayers as tho city council, and as they  would have to pull wltn the school board  on these matters ho thought If the matter  was referred to the school committee to  report  at   the   next  meeting  thcro   would  be still plenty of time to pass the estimates  before the.monthly checks were due.  Alderman Selous ��� complained ��� that the  =councll-was-at'the-mercy-6f-the=board,.and.  If they. demanded a million a minute they  were at their mercy.  The city.clerk reminded alderman'Selous  that there was a limit fixed by law, Which  was that the estimates should not exceed  15 mills, which greatly soothed his anxiety.  The matter was finally left to the school  committee.  The tenders which had ben called for the  enlargement of the city hall wero then  opened and read: W. G. Glllett, $1658; John  Hepburn, $156*";: Donald Burgess, $1497; John  Toye, $1875; D. J. McNally, -J18S5.  All the tenders except the lowest contained the customary deposit, and some discussion arose as to whether it should bo  considered with ��� the others. The question  was further raised as to whether It would  not be better by an additional expenditure  of $300 or $400 to build of brick or stone,  as tho mayor had been given to understand  that this could be done.  The matter was finally left with the committee on public works to confer with the  different contractors as to the extra cost,  and report at the next meeting of the council.  The claim of James Hubbard.for the alleged loss in the burning of a shack came  up again for discussion. No action wus  taken on the matter as the council do not  favor establishing a precedent of this nature.  Tho following payrolls were recommended  by tho finance committee and passed by the  council: Salaries $1385, firemen $403, scavenging $295, waterworks $84.25, sidewalks $68,  electric light maintenance $38, election expenses $54.  Kootenay Lake Claims Another Victim  Ho was known only as Bosun. "When he  first boarded the steamer Nelson over a  year go. His appearance was not prepossessing and he showed signs of having been  In hard luck for a time. His agreablc manners soon endeared him to officers and crew  who vied with each other in making life  pleasant for him, and his strict attention  to duty was an object lesson to others of  the crew. But Bsoun is now only a sad  memory. It happened thus: The Nelson a  short time ago was transferring barges  with the "Valhalla on Kootenay lake. During the exchange Bosun, as usual, was in  evidence, here, there and everywhere. The  last seen of him was when the Nelson had  started on the return trip with the barge  alongside. Bosun was noticed on the barge,  and it is supposed that in stepping therefrom to the stjamer he missed his footing  and went overboard. On arrival at Kootenay Landing Bosun did not answer the roll  call, nor has he been seen or heard of since,  and tho only conclusion arrived at is that  Kootenay lake has claimed another victim.  Sincere regret was expressed by everyone  on tho steamer over his untoward loss.  Bosun was a dog.

Emperor William's Birthday  BERLTN, January 27.���Tlie oilicial Relch-  sanzeigcr this evening publishes an Imperial order on the subject of today's army  order, in which the wish Is expressed that  the "spirit which animated tlie bearers of  thoso names for centuries may ever remain  alive. Then will this distinction constitute  . a permanent incitement to answer for the  grandeur of the fatherland with blood and  treasure and never flinch or waver, even  though storms are raging on all sides."  Tho emperor and empress attended divine  services in the morning. After the service  the emperor held a "congratulation court,"  at which all the great- dignitaries of^tate  were present as were also the prince of  Wales and other foreign representatives.  In the afternoon the emperor and the  prince of Wales repaired to the armory accompanied by the crown prince Frederick  William, prince Eltel and the headquarters  staff. His majesty was, warmly cheered by  large crowds along the route. The empress'  birthday present to the emperor was a  model of her left hand, executed in marble  by professor Begas. The only ornament on  the hand is a wedding ring. "While emperor  �� William was receiving congratulations on  the anniversary of his birthday from foreign ambassadors here, he held Andrew  "White, the American ambassador, in conversation for a few minutes, during which  he said h�� was pleased with the very kind  way in which the'prospect of his;brother's  . visit was received in th'e United States.-  DEEP SCHEMEBS  CROWD OUT INDEPENDENT  CANDIDATES ��  Twelve Years a Fugitive  BUTTE, Montana, January 27.���A "Missoula special to the Miner says: G. A. Bennet, formerly a prominent merchant of this  city, and brother to William Bennett of  Deer Lodge and Nelson Bennett of Washington, who for the past twelve years has  been-hiding from an indictment of a grand  jury, issued October 12th, 1S90, on a charge  of cattle stealing, was last night brought  to Missoula by sheriff Prescott, The story  ��� of his downfall, so far as can be learned, is  that Bell Brothers, pi eminent stockmen of  Stevensvllle in tho summer of 1890 had been  missing cattle and suspicion fell on Bennet and hisrange riders. Bell Instructed  his cowboys to keep a close watch on Ben-  net's-riders, with the result that evidence  against Bennett, which was laid before district judge Marshall, was considered sufficient by that judge to warrant his calling  a grand jury to investigate. After a session  lasting several days the grand jury - returned a verdict against Bennett and four  others, charging them with stealing cattle.  Bennett drove l'rom his home through this  city to some unkiown point, where, dressed  in a woman's garb he made his escape. The  various sheriff- of this county. since the  escape have been constantly on the lookout for Bennett. Some weeks ago the sher-  ; Iff located his man at Albuquerque, New  Mexico, and quietly ''left the city for the  south with, all papers necessary fpr his ar-  erst and return here.

Nervy Express Robbery  CPIARLESTON, South Carolina, January  27.���Meagre details of a daring express robbery near Branchville which was committed shortly'after 7 o'clock this evening,  have been received. As , the northbound  train from Charleston slowed up two miles  from Branchville the engineer, fireman and  conductor were ordered by masked men to  stop the train. The robbers then uncoupled  the engine, unloaded the two iron express  safes, put them on a two horse wagon and  drove away. The leader is supposed to be  the notorious Barlow Warrane, who robbed  the express car within a few miles of  Branchville in 1899. He murdered tho chief  witness against him and escaped from jail,  and recently has been reported as at large  in Orange county.  FREFONTAINE   WILL   PROBABLY  SUCCEED HIMSELF AS MAYOR  OF MONTREAL  Ice Causing Trouble  The steamer Moyie had some difficulty  with ice on her trip from Nelson yesterday  morning. The river was rrozen solid from  Nelson to Five-mile point, the Ice being  from two to four inches thick. There was  also a large field between Eight-mile and  Nine-mile points. Beyond Nine-mile the  river was clear. The Ice at Kootenay Landing is from four to six Inches thick, and  considerable difficulty is being experienced  In handling the transfer barges at that  point. It Is expected that the C. P. It. will  releaso their Ice breaker, now being used  as a dredger at Kootenay Landing, and In  a day or two the steamers will again make  tho run through to Nelson.

The woman declared tlie shooting  was done by her husband. Mrs. Zeigler was  ermoved to a hospital where physicians say  she may live. She soon relapsed into unconsciousness after her arrival at the  hospital.

This  afternoon application was made to judge  Langeller for a writ of mandamus ordering:  the cit.y-clerk to restore mayor Prefontalne's  name* upon- the ballot paper, which was  granted.: It.' will be remembered' that four,  candidates were nominated. One,.Dr. La-  chapelle was nominated in the belief that  nobody but Frenchmen could beat Prefontalne. "Wilson Smith, a former mayor, was  nominated because It wns the turn of an  English. speaking mayor. James " Cochran  nominated himself because . he considered-  a scheme was on foot to force "Wilson  Smith on to an unwilling electorate. Matters were complicated by the fact that  Prefontalne had about ten days previously,  sailed for Europe. Cable communication  was opened with him and it was finally de-  ��� cided - that : -Lachapelle" and Prefontaino  should   retire.   The ��� city 'charter   provides  ��� that the retirement of a candidate shall bo  made personally. In Prefontalne's absence'  this of .course had to be done by proxy,  through power of attorney. The fight was  then* left between Cochran and Smith. A  canvas of the city soon showed indications  that Smith would be beaten by thousands.  Smith and Prefontalne are:supposed to represent the same interests, the big corporations with: public franchises. The result  was that the writ of mandamus1 noted  abovo was asked for and Prefontalne restored to ballot because his withdrawal not  being, made personally, was illegal. Smith  will now withdraw and the contest will bo  between Prefontalne: and Cochran. The"  election of the former is practically certain.  The impression' is that the whole affair  was a carefully planned game" in which  Prefontalne's departure for Europe was tho  first move.

From the statement of  the prisoners it appears that they had  blamed the Japanese or a man living  with him for practicing sorcery, to  which they ascribed the death of several  of their tribe. By way of revenge they  killed Kamamura, the Japanese, in the  belief that his death would save the  rest of the tribe from the consequences  of Kamamura's witchcraft.

Whether the Nanaimo labor men  can accomplish more by independent  action may be questioned but it is' evident that the prefer to take their  chances rather than act as a tail to  Ralph Smith's political kite.  The burning question in Vancouver's  municipal politics is whether or not the  aldermen should continue to draw down  their annual salary allowance of $300  each.

Death came to him suddenly yesterday  in his room in the Murray Hill hotel,  !in New York, where he was stricken  down with flying debris from an explosion of dynamite in one of the shaft-  leading to the tunnel of the Rapid Transit Company. The news of the explosion, with its tragic result, was received  in Nelson shortly after three o'clock,  and cast a gloom over the community  in which J. Roderick Robertson had  heen a central figure for several years.  Many were the expressions of sympathy  heard for the bereaved widow and orphan children, but aside from this it  was generally felt that Nelson had suffered a loss apart from that of the hns-  l.'and and father.   Tew men in the dis  trict had a wider circle of friends than  the deceased; and to him was given the  most    prominent    part    to    play    in  the   development   of   its , mineral   resources.       None     had     greater     faith  than     he     in     Kootenay's.    possibilities,   and   no   other   accomplished   so  much in demonstrating their worth.   In  this  it" is true  the  goddess of fortune  smiled upon him, but it cannot be forgotten that he brought to his aid rare  business   sagacity   and   foresight    Thc-  rosult was that all of his mining ventures   prospered,   until   it   came   about  that the association of his name with a  new enterprise was taken almost as a  guarantee of success.   J. Roderick Robertson first came to the front in Kootenay by reason of the skill he displayed  as general manager in piloting the Loudon & British Columbia Goldflelds from  the date of its inception until his death.  Later he commanded more or less favorable attention as manager of the Ymir  Gold Mines, Limited; and still later as  , manager of the Enterprise (B. C.) Mines,  Limited, and as president of the Cascade  Water, Power & Light Company.   Nelson had in him a stout champion, and  his lively interest in its welfare induced  him to associate himself with the board  of trade, of which body he at one time  was president.    "J. Roderick," as is intimates called him, was a man of generous impulses.    He prized the respect  and esteem of those who worked under  him equally with   that   of   those   who  worked   with   him.     His   friends   were  legion, and they with sorrow will read  of his death, throughout the province,  in the clubs, in the commercial centers  and in the miners cabins.  From the warmth that is being developed in'the bye election in Victoria  to fill the vacancy in the house of commons, it is easy to understand the desire  of the Bodwell faction to have the bye  election for the Victoria vacancy in  the legislature pulled off before the Liberals could declare for party lines. In  the present contest Helmcken and McPhillips, the Conservative bolters in the  legislature, are straining-every--effort to  persuade Victorians against endorsing  a Liberal candidate for ��� the commons,  and it would be a rather sharp curve,  even for them to make, to get out a few  weeks later and ask the same electors  to endorse a straight Liberal for the  ��� legislature.  BIG SALMON PLACER GROUND  The rupture in the Labor party in  Nanaimo has been unwelcome news to  the political managers who hoped to  bring about a coalition of the Liberal  pnd Labor parties in the province.   The'  Gives Large Eeturns  Traffice manager J. Francis Lee, of  the White Pass & Yukon route, has  just received a letter from F. R. Carpenter, who is operating in the Big  Salmon district, that contains much-information regarding that section. Mr.  Carpenter regards the district as the  best in the north for prospecting, and  as extremely rich. Last fall he laid out  the town of Commercial Center in the  Big=Salmon^country_and-had^just-estab--  lished a landing known as Eureka,  about twenty-eight miles above Hoota-  linqua, on the Hootalinqua river. The  new landing shortens the trail to Commercial Center by several miles, thus  making the district easier of access.  Mr. Carpenter writes as follows:  "There are about a hundred men  working in the district and about fifty  of them are miners, all working at  prospecting the hill sides and benches.  The gold all comes from the hills. The  winter's work has proven that conclusively.  "We havo three tunnels in the hillside on Moose creek, 350 feet abovo 'the  creek, and have got. big pay, gelling  pans that run as high as $25, and many  running from $3 to $S. Four men are  sinking a hole on the hill above Livingstone, arc down thirty feet and have  struck pay running from forty to eighty-  five cents to the pan. They believe it  is about fifty feet to bedrock. The tunnels on Summit creek are equally good  and Lake creek is turning out better  than was expected. Six men are working on the rim and taking out $25 to  the man. Little Violet is also at ,the  front. There are eight men at work,  all making good money.  "May creek is a new discovery, but  the work done so far shows up well,  four men working with rockers aud  making 515 to $20 per day. They are  also running a tunnel. There is no one  working on Cotton Eva this winter,  but it showed up well last fall. There  is no work being done on Silva at present, but there will be. Two hydraulics  go in early in the spring.  "Good prospects were found on Fish  creek last fall, ten miles from the  mouth. It was late, however, and no  work was clone this winter. Bear creek,  forty miles from Commercial Center up  the south fork of the Big Salmon, is  showing up well, nine men working by  last report, and taking out good money.  There have been several new creeks  discovered this winter, as we have had  a fine winter for prospecting; weather  mild, with very little snow. Eight below zero has been the coldest. That  only lasted two days. We have had it  40 above in December, so you can see  that we are favored in this respect.  "Men are working on the St. Germain getting out lumber for flumes, and  are preparing to   put   in  a  hydraulic  Niagara's Improvements  NEW YORK, January 27.���Another  great step in the utilization of Niagara  power is announced by the Electrical  World and Engineer. On the American  side of the falls the Niagara Falls Power  Company has long had in operation eleven dynamos, each driven with it's own  turbine, and developing 5000 horse  power. A wheel pit, parallel with the  first one, was recently completed and  within the la'st year orders were given  for eleven more water wheels and generators. When these are installed the  company will be able: to supply 110,000  horse power in the form of electricity.  Operations are now to be undertaken on  the Canadian side.   ���'.,.���  The Electrical World and Engineer  says that contracts have just been  placed with-the; General Electric Company for the construction of three ten  thousand horse power generators of the  new plant, whose ultimate capacity, it  is estimated will probably reach 200.000  horse power. The negotiations have  been conducted by the Canadian Niagara Power Company, which held, the  original charter of the enterprise, but  whose rights have been acquired by the  American company. These dynamos  will be situated like those of the Niagara Falls Power Company, at the level  of the surface of the earth, while the  turbines will be in a wheel pit directly  underneath. Vertical shafts over one  hundred feet.long will connect the water  wheels with the generators. It is asserted that" these dynamos will be the  largest ever built. The closest approaches to them is made by those-being installed in the power house of the  Manhattan Elevated Railway Company  of this city!   Second C. M E.

YUKON'S   GOLD   DEPOSITS  Great Future for tbe North  Henry A. Miers, D.S. C, "F. R. S., Way-  ncliete, professor of mineralogy in the university of Oxford, in an oilicial report to  the minister of tho interior, Hon. Clifford  Sifton, gives his impression to the Yukon  goldflelds along with Prof. A. P. Coleman,  of the Toronto university last summer. The  principal object of their visit was to study  tho mining methods and the auriferous deposits oi the Klondike district. In giving  his impressions of the Canadian Yukon Dr.  Miers says.  "The cost of working and the sort of  gravel whicli-will pay vary of course with  local conditions. I was told that 5 cents to  the-pan may be taken as the average for  pay' gravel in tlie Klondike, but that the  deeper workings on some creeks can be  worked at 2 cents per pan. If I may venture an opinion on matters which I have  been able to survey very superficially on  a brief visit, it appears that, owing to the  great wealth of the Klondike, progress has  been too rapid and that methods whicli  must in the end .prevail as the most systematic and economical havo been introduced before the.cost of transport, of material, of labor,: /and of necessaries of life  have been sufficiently reduced to meet  them. I have already mentioned some instances of the enormous cost of mining; it  is, scarcely necessary to Quote statistics,  . moreover, it is difficult to feel sure that  they are really trustworthy.  "Signs of improvement are visible, however, in all these respects. The initial cost  of importing goods into the country seems  to be diminishing; althought freight rates  amount to 6 cents per pound by the AVhite  Pass route; they have been, I believe only  8 cents-by the St. Michael's route, and will,  no doubt, be capable of reduction by either  route. I was told that the cost of transport  from Dawson to the Grand Forks over the  Ridgo road, or lower road, which was no  less than 15 cents per pound in. 1899, .was 3%  cents per pound'in 1900, and is only 1 cent  per pound in 1901.The timber which used  to be ?1 a foot at Grand Porks Is now $110  per thousand for flume building, and .$16 a  cord for firewood. Fodder, which used to be  from $1000 to $1200 per ton, was obtained this  year at the rate of S tons for $1000. Still, it  is certain that the expenses are nearly prohibitive; it is, no doubt, well known to you  that wages of at least $5 a day a.nd $2.fi0  for board,, arc universally demanded and  paid for unskilled labor, and that an ?S  Wage has been sterotyped by Its adoption  as tho scale of pay offered by the government for road construction, etc. The miner's license of-$10 of course has to be paid  by every one employed in mining, 1. e., for  every member of the'camp except the cook.  Interest appears to be commonly charged  at the rate' of 5 per cent per month; the  necessaries of life arc very expensive; the  rent of a log cabin in Dawson is $50 per  month; and meat is still from 50 to 75  cents per pound. Some of the conditions  tell more against the large operator than  tho small one; the 5- per cent royalty, for  example, on an output above $5000; or again  the fact that-the owner :of thirty claims  must so far sub-divide his labor as to put  in the necessary representative work on  each group of ten claims, instead of being  allowed to concentrate ms labor on one;  also, the absence off'any-provision'assisting-  an owner to acquire intermediate claims  which intervene between isolated claims or  groups of claims which may be sold.  "Everything, however, is clearly tending  in the direction of large operations, and  towards the extinction of the small operator; the ��� concessions which have been  granted, mark no doubt, the opening page  of a new chapter in the history of Klondike  "mining. "And yet, it cannot be said, that the  concessions have as yet, been productive of the work which Was expected of  them. When one takes into account the  enormous''wealth of the district, aud the  fact that, as I have endeavored to show.  it"is"ldsing~the~preea:rlOus character of n  new placer camp, and is approximating to  the conditions of ordinary mining, in spite  of.the absence of quartz; that, in fact it is  ceasing to be a poor man's camp, and requires extensive capital'and labor for Its-  development; it is certainly remarkable  that so many serious failures should have  occurred, that so few of the mines have  been worked at a good profit, and that the  concessions should hitherto have failed to  produce any great effect. It:is a fact of  common knowledge that the failures connected with English capital have been particularly disastrous; a peculiar fatality  seems to have pursued English capitalists  In tho Klondike region. I heard it frequently remarked upon in the district nnd always deplored, that it" was not necessarily'  (Hie to want of judgment In selecting claims  is clear from the fact that in several Instances the very ground which failed to  yield a return to an English company has  subsequently been taken up and successfully operated bv others. Tho workers on the  creeks who are in a position to know arc  not only unanimous in confessing tlie fact,  but so far as I was able to judge they are  also unanimous in -ascribing a cause to, it.  They declare, that the men who were sent  out to represent the interests of tho English companies, either in many cases lackeu  thc judgment or stability of character  which were needed, or had not the interests .of their employers sufficiently at heart.  There is probably no place in the world  where a voting or inexperienced man may  more easily lose his balance, spehd his  money and forget his business than in  Dawson. From all accounts, companies  which really possessed fine property were  in some Instances wrecked because their  affairs were ruinously handled by then-  representatives. A short visit to the country is enough to anyone that these  disasters did hot take place because the  district was poor; or In any case played  out, but that the capitalists have themselves to blame. Nothing is more remarkable than to watch the successful operations of these enterprising men, who, without previous experience in mining, or even  in the employment of labor, have come to  the front a.s directors of large mining concerns, involving the construction of machinery and the organization of labor. Prominent examples are afforded by some of  the workings to which I have alluded to  above. Unless English and other companies  realize that the conditions are new. and  that In order to master them energy, enterprise and adaptability are required; unless thev send out industrious men possessing these characteristics devoted to the interests of their employers, and capable of  profiting bv the experience of the inhabitants they'will fail to secure good properties or will mismnnago those which come  into their hands. There is an abundance of  mon in the Klondike who have proved  themselves capable of mastering the new-  conditions,   and   there  is   room   for   many  Prof. Miers. in his outlook for the future  says: "Within tho limited nrea which .'  have described the auriferous creeks  radiate from a center; a glance at the mails sufficient to suggest that the gold ha."  not been brought from a distance: this opinion Is confirmed by the nature of the gold  THE CANADIAN  BANK OF COMMERCE  WITH WHICH IS AMALGAMATED  THE BANK OF BRITISH COLUMBIA.

One  very valuable source of gold is the deposit  known as the White Channel, of which the  origin is shrouded in mystery; it is therefore conceivable that all the gold of the  creek claims have been derived from extensive deposits of this material which pre-  viouslv filled the valleys and have been denuded' away except upon the hillsides; t  might be concluded that there is not much  prospect of finding gold except in the white  channel or in the gravels derived from this  that the stream gravels overlying the white  channel do not contain much gold. On the  other hand the materials (quartz and seri-  cite schist) composing the white channel  are found in the country rock of which  the district consists. Further, the gold is  often found attached to quartz of the same  character. On Hunker creek I saw a nugget bearing sharp and distinct impressions  of quartz crystals, proving unmistakably  that it was derived from erystallne quartz.  These facts render the search for auriferous quartz somewhat hopeful, and the discoveries of the present year shows that it  undoubtedly exists in the schists of the  Klondike. It remains to be seen how extensive the deposits may be.  "As regards mining the conditions are  rapidly changing. Machinery and organized labor are being introduced, and the  camp is no longer a placer camp for the  poor man. In fact ordinary placer mining  can now only bo seen on some of the lower  bench claims on Dominion and Bonanza  creeks, where the conditions are so favorable that the gravel can, I believe, be  worked as low as a half a cent a pan.. With  more economical methods, employed on a  large scale, ground should be profitably  worked which has not been rich enough  for the early miner, and doubtless, herein  will be included many of the creek claims  whicli are supposed to have been worked  out. and much of tho tailings; the introduction of dredging and hydraulicing. to  which I have called special attention, has  been the first step in this direction. The  present almost prohibitive cost of transport, material and labor, and the high  standards of living stand in the way of  progress. The new government -roads do  much to relievo the first dufflculty, but in  many respects the district has maintained  the abnormal peculiarities of a placer  camp. Although a thrifty- miner ought to  be able to live on $2 or S3 a day, yet ifS to  $10 is the rate of wages,. the interest on  loans is 60 per cent, and house rent is half  the value of the house. There is always a  sense of insecurity about a placer mining  region, and I have found outside the country a somewhat widespread impression  that the "Yukon Territory has seen its best  days, and will not long continue to be productive; I must confess that I shared this  impression before visiting Dawson. A short  stay in the country is, however, suiilcient  to convince a visitor that, even putting on  one side the possibility of quartz mining,  many of the properties now being worked  have many years' life left in them at the  present rate, and that a comparatively  small portion of even the Klondike, district  has been worked out. lt may well be that  the extravagantly rich deposits are exhausted and that no stretch of three and a halt  miles on a single creek will again produce  from twenty-live to thirty million dollars  of gold. Yet, even when the Klondike district Is exhausted, there remains the whole  Yukon territory, which is certainly auriferous over certain areas. The territory has  been very imperfectly prospected, and prospecting in this country is very difficult on  account of the vegetation. There is no reason why it should not ultimately yield  other remunerative gold fields when the  country has been opened up. Other resources are gradually revealing themselves;  very fair coal is mined at Cliff creek, about  55 miles below Dawson, and has been  traced from that point to Rock creek, on  tho Klondike, and possibly much farther to  the east. The coal mined on the Yukon,  four miles above Five Finger rapids, is said  to be even better. A considerable amount  of placer copper evidently exists up the  White river, where it is said to be used by  tho Indians for bullets, and copper ores  are reported from various localities, and*  notably (bromite. etc.) from the neighborhood of White Horse. Meanwhile there is  an opening for honest, determined and i-  dustrious men who will confront the usual  .conditions of^the^country, .and^be^pxopared^  to live arid work economically."  IRISHMEN ARE FRACTIOUS  Some Exciting Arrests  . If it bo decided to arrest the new member for -Galway on his arrival at Westminster London may have a repitition of the  extraordinary and humorous scenes that  wero enacted in the vicinity of the house  of commons in 1SSS and 1S80.  Warrants were issued under tlie Crimes  Act for the arrest of several Irish M. P.'s,  but the "birds" were coy, and, although  anxious - eyed detectives lay in ambush  around the palace of St. Stephen's, tho  hunted ones proved themselves for a time  as elusive as the wily Dewet.  Mr. Douglas Pync, who was .subsequently  drowned under mysterious circumstances  in the passage between Holyhead and Dublin, was tho first to be captured. It was on  November 10th, 1NSS, that the honorable  gentleman fell a victim to tho stratcgems  of the Saxon. He had driven up in a cab to  the entrance at the foot of the clock tower  and was making a dash for the steps leading to the palace yard, when the officers  seized him. Another moment and Mr. Pyne  would have been safe. As it was, he struggled violently to-cross the border, but it  was too late, and'-finding resistance of no  avail he good naturedly surrendered.  That same afternoon the police made a  sad blunder, which was subsequently  brought before the house as a question of  privilege. A warrant was in their hands  for the arrest of Mr. Gilhooly. Now Mr.  Gilhooly was a little man, and a detective  inspector, who was on the lookout, seeing  an Irish member of short stature in the  neighborhood of the house, promptly arrested him.  The officer was on his way to Scotland  Yard with his prisoner when he discovered  to his horror that he had arrested the  wrong man. Mr. Gilhooly wa.s his legitimate quarry, and he had seized upon Mr.  Patrick O'Brien.  The immediate sequel was diverting. With  the idea of putting matters right, the inspector went down to tho house that same  afternoon and sent his card Into Mr.  O'Brien, the honorable gentleman came out  into the Central Hall, and was receiving  the officer's apologies, when Mr. Gilhooly  appeared on the scene, and assuming that  the inspector was a friend of O'Brien's,  proceeded to relate with glee the story of  how on the previous night he had fooled  the police who were in pursuit of him.  ��� "Why, here is Mr. Gilhooly," said M**.  O'Brien to the inspector. "Why don't you  arrest him?"  Tho officer with a sickly smile replied:  "No, he's within tho sacred precincts now."  That night Mr. Gilhooly fell into the enemy'.1* hands. He was taken Into custody  outside tho palace yard amid one of the  most remarkable scones in tho history of  Irish politics.

Among them was Mr. Parnell, who  sternly looked on. "Show your warrant,"  cried many Irish voices, and one excited  member shouted, "If he attempts to drag  you away, Jim, without producing a warrant, you would be justified in shooting  him dead."  In due time .after a great deal of shouting and scuffling, the warrant was produced and Mr. Gilhooly was led off into  captivity, followed up Parliament street  by a crowd of cheering members of the  house of commons.  A year later the police were in pursuit of  the genial and eccentric Dr. Tanner, who  has since gone over to the great majority.  Suddenly, amid wild Irish cheering, the  doctor appeared in the house of commons  itself.  He had driven at great speed into the  palace yard in a friend's carriage, jumped  hastily from the vehicle and rushed  through the member's entrance before ambushed detectives could seize him. That  night Dr. Tanner voted in.the division on  Mr. Morley's Irish amendment to the address, and when the house rose he proceeded to the Westminster Palace - hotel,  surrounded by a crowd of Irish members,  who formed a solid square around their  colleague, and lustily sang "God Save Ireland," as they marched.  On the steps the doctor gave his blessing  to  his  escort,   and  when his  friends  dispersed was quietly arrested in the smoking room.  These exciting proceedings were in the  main characterized by good humor and  sportsmanlike conduct on both sides, the  Irish frankly recognizing that the police  were only doing their duty.  LORD MILNER IS HOPEFUL  His Views on South Africa council, the chamber of commerce, and the chamber of mines of Johannesburg gave a banquet at Heath's  hotel recently in honor of lord Milner.  St. John Carr, the acting mayor, presided. Mr. Carr, in proposing the toast  to the the health of the guest, said lord  Milner was rightly regarded as the  ���friend of every one in South Africa. He  had tried with patience and argument  before the war to promote harmony, but  an organized conspiracy frustrated his  efforts and the struggle ensued in which  Johannesburg hastened to take a manly  part. There was the greatest sympathy  with the man who had borne the stress  of offlce with patience, fortitude and patriotism. The toast was drunk with enthusiasm.  Lord Milner, in reply, thanked those  present for their cordial reception, and  also expressed his appreciation of the  sincere words of the chairman. He felt  deeply, he said, the welcome extended  to him by the combined public bodies of  Johannesburg, which met under such  unique conditions. The country had  been devasted by a lengthy war. All  had suffered material losses, and there  were other losses, human and personal.  He hesitated, he said, to refer to the  gaps in the ranks of the citizens. Some  of the best known, respected and beloved had gone; others not so well  known had fallen victims to war in the  field, or to its companion, pestilence,  and their graves were scattered all over  South Africa. He hoped to see a memorial to these citizens erected in this  -city,-_which--many^believed -cared��� only-  for gold. In his experience, he had  found that it was second to none in respect for men. Although there had been  losses, disappointments and anxieties  in the past, he hoped that the spirit of  the men would show itself, and that  they would brace themselves for the  task of reconstructing. He felt that the  storm cloud which had burst in the air  had already cleared. Men breathed  freely, and it would i*e imposible for  folly and mismanagement to ever again  bring similar disaster.  'Lord Milner said there were still  counsellers who desired another settlement similar to that after the battle  of Majuba; but the people of Great  Britain would have none of them. Still,  they mako a noise, darken counsel and  weaken action. The majority of the  people, while regretting the war, recognize its necessity, and will not be  cheated of the results by a moment's  despondency. The friends of the enemy, thre governor said, pretended that  the war would never end unless the  British went on their knees to the enemy, the governor said, pretended that  would come quickest if there was no  fidgeting about negotiations. It was the  useless either to threaten or wheedle.  The only way was to keep squeezing  the commandoes in the field and confine  clemency to those who desired peace.  Those who desired peace prophesied  terrible things after the war. He remembered the time when they were always blubbering about Egypt. He himself did not believe in any terrible future for South Africa. The war itself  had been an inconceivable difficulty.  The statesman's task afterward would  not be so difficult, and only required  patriotism and resolution. All the danger was not here, but on the other side.  Some people at home refused to see that  the peoples of the sister colonies had no  such doubts. They had been a great  standby on battlefields, and were an  equally valued standby on political  fields.  The pro-Boers, he said, considered  only the Boers, morning, noon and  night. It was Boer, Boer, Boer. There  was no consideration for the rest of  South Africa, the loyal British, the loyal  Dutch, and those of the enemy who  had accepted British rule. The moment  a Boer surrendered the pro-Boers had  no further interest in him.

Never had there been  such sacrifices by a distant section of  the race. This section was conciliatory,  and had no desire to cut up the Boers;  but also had shrewder notions as to  how to conciliate them. Theorists at  home, while conciliatory, were against  a policy which would prove to pay better, that of fighting to the last gap.  Lord Milner said he was against particularism; he wished equally well to  Pretoria and to the country, and agricultural sections of the people. His  duty was to all of South Africa. There  was an enormous amount of work to be  done, and it was not necessary to wait  until the end of the war before beginning. While he was oposed to setting  up civil government in opposition to  military government, he favored the  speediest resumption of the normal life,  subject to the military requirements,  that it was right and necessary for each  man to do a part of the military duties.  He was against giving ficticious importance to remnants of the enemy by allowing them to paralize the industries  of the country. The transition from  war to peace, would be gradual, but  would be no worse for that. It was their  duty now to prepare to work to enlighten the stress of the feverish activity which prevailed after the war.  Lord Milner's speech was enthusiastically received.  At the conclusion the chairman proposed the health of lord Kitchener, who  was absent from the city. Lord Kitchener sent word that he could not be(  present, and expressed the hope that  the army would soon finish its business  in South Africa,  WeDon't  KEEP OUR GOODS TO LOOK AT  WE SELL AND HE-BUY  /���  You will find our stock  complete with the most  up-to-date  FURNITURE  CARPETS  HIGH ART PICTURES  LINOLEUMS  AT LOWEST PRIDES  Don't miss seeing our  fine line of Xmas goods.

Tn cross examination of the plaintiff tho fact was revealed  tliat she was a much married woman. It  appears that her present venture, which  occurred about n. year ago, was her fourth  .speculation   In   the   mrtirimonial   market.  Two of the former husbands were divorced,  and tho third had died, and tho last one  had quit after the tenvu day. She stated  that her reasons, for marrying tho last one  was that he claimed that he was a foreman  at ono of tho mines, and was in receipt of  $.!.ffl) per day. For some time after thov  were married he had not been working,  after which timo he had left for one of the  mines and had given her $30. Since that  time he had been away from the city and  had not requested tho pleasure of her company on the trip. She claimed that ho had  neglected to support her and she was not  able to support herself. The defendant in  the case was not examined and the case  was again remanded to give the contending  parties an opportunity to settle the matter  out of court. In the case of this not being  done the case will likely come up again before his worship in the morning.  Those who desire cheap furniture will  have an opportunity of getting it during  the mortgagee's sale of the stock of J. G.  Bunyan & Company, which commences today. An announcement of .the sale appears  in another column.  Judge Forin has one conscientious hen.  It belongs to the barred Plymouth Rock  variety and evidently believes in retaining  some relationship between the size of hen  fruit and the prevailing local price of CO  cents per. Yesterday this hen provided an  egg which measured 6'/i inches one way and  7% inches another.    *  The news of the death of Rev. I-I. Trwin  was received In Nelson with" genuine regret, where "Father Pat", was known to  most of the old timers. In tho course of his  sermon in St. Saviour's church on Sunday  Rev. IT. Finnes Clinton paid a graceful tribute to the memory of tho deceased, at  tho close of which W. A. Jowett played the  "Dead March in Saul," the entire congregation Ptandlnrr.

Thompson, late manager of the Yukon Sun,  and formerly connected with the Nelson  Miner, will shortly leave Dawson for Ottawa to.-Interest the Canadian cabinet in a  project to try the Marconi wireless telegraph to connect Dawson with the outside  world at Ashcroft on the Canadian Pacific. After finishing his work at Ottawa Mr.  Thompson will go to New York and enter  the Marconi laboratory to make a thorough  study of the wireless telegraph. He will endeavor to personally interest Marconi in  the project. The matter to be tested will be  the-transmission of signals across land as  well as sea. High mountain ranges intervene between here and the rest of the  world, and to send wireless messages over  them will be the thing to accomplish. Mr.  Thompson's plan is to flrst try a signal station at White Horse, and later establish  one at Ashcroft.  ughtepiiig'..'  Sale  Eng-  AT THE HOTELS.  PHAIR���F.  W.  Flanagan, London,  land; J. A.
