 ESABLISHED   1892  FBIDA.Y MORJTOTG, JANUAEY 31*  1902  TAPS TBE WEST  NEW YORK CENTRAL BUYS  CANADA ATLANTIC  THIS GIVES THE AMERICAN ROAD  ACCESS  TO THE GREAT    '  LAKES VIA OTTAWA  OTTAWA,   January    30.���Despite   all  denials to the contrary, the sale of the  Canada   Atlantic   railway   to   the   New  York   Central   and   St.   Lawrence   and  Adirondack companies is all but completed.   Dr. Seward Webb, who arrived  here   today   confirmed   this   statement.  He said  that the sale had  been completed except for a few minor details.  The sale was made by Dr. Webb after he  had  interviewed  Mr.  Chamberlain,  the  general manager of the Canada Atlantic  and had been closeted for an hour and a  half with Mr. Booth, the principal owner  of the road.   To your correspondent Dr.  Webb was brief, but to the point.   "You  may state," said he, "that negotiations  for the sale of the road have been progressing satisfactorily and with the exception of a few minor details the deal  is about consumated.    I may say that  I have been down at Mr. Booth's offices  for the past hour and a half.    My interview with him was very satisfactory.'  It is pretty generally known that Dr.  Webb, who controls the New York Central and Rutland systems, is acting also  for vice president  .Meyer,   of   the   St.  Lawrence   and    Adirondack    company,  ��.vhieh is an adjunct to the New York  Central.    Dr. Webb has met Mr. Booth  on each occasion.    Although  denied at  first, the deal, it has been learned, has  been in progress since December when  the" officials of the company's store departments were ordered to  take  stock.  ���j   The   capital   stock   of   the   company  : consists of $2,000,000 of preferred stock  $5,200,000 of common stock and ?L200,-  000 of first mortgage at 5 per cent bonds,  making a  total   capitalization   of   $11,-.  400,000.    The  road  is  one of the. best  equipped in the country- and last year  the total earnings amounted to $403,000.  The price which is   said  Mr.   Booth   is  asking .-for,, the , system   is   $10,000,000.  This  amount will  give good  value to  tlie stock-holders.  Dr. Webb says that he will have an  interview today with Mr. Booth, in regard to the Canada Atlantic, so that  there is evidently some truth about the  story of parties being negotiating tc  purchasing the road.  Mr. Booth, who was seen late tonight,  now admits that negotiations have beer  going on for the sale of the Canada Atlantic for three months. This statement  was drawn from him after being told  what Dr. Webb said.  itive that his wife's beauty attracted a designing young man from New York, nnd  that she was abducted Dy him, aided by  other persons. The only facts that appear  to be clearly established aro that Mrs.  Francilla is gone, and that Francilla is  willing to pay $250 to get her back.  Mrs.  Francilla Is 22 years old. She lived  with her husband at COS Brown street. Two  days after Christmas she met him and they  went shopping together. Francilla returned  lo  his  work.  His  wife boarded  a car for  home.   That  was  the  last    seen    of    Mrs.  Francilla  by  her  husband..  When  he returned, at night  their rooms were  in disorder,  bureaus and    trunks    having   been  rifled of Mrs. Francllla's personal effects.  The husband  said  last night  that with a  detective he traced his wife from this city  to New York, where she was concealed for  a time In a house on East Fourth street,  and also in a. house on Eighty-fourth street.  "I have succeeded In learlng who took my  wife away and   the  persons  who assisted  her    in  Philadelphia,"'   said   Francilla.    "1  don't believe my wife had a chance to resist. If I get her back I will treat her as  before. Unfortunately I have not sufficient  evidence to warrant tlio arrest of persons  who wore present and helped her pack her  clothing. Once I get my wife  I can begin  suit.   Her  sister.   Mrs.   Theodore  Goitz,   of  Rockaway Beach, i.s assisting me, and she  will begin suit in a few days to compel the  young man who abducted her to produce  her in court.

IRELAND'S REIGN OF TERROR  FESTIVAL WAS A SUCCESS  Almon's Sensational Story  WASHINGTON, January 30.���James Almon, who died here yesterday insisted thai  $100,000 was offered him to poison president  Lincoln. Almon kept the dairy that supplied tho White House with milk and  cream during the civil war. This is the  way Almon .told the story:"  "One morning. In the early part of April.  186G, shortly before tho president was assassinated, I was driving in my wagon  when two men stopped and one of them  asked mc if I didn't want to make $100,00'  quickly. Lscarcely knew_whati_to_say. buL  -T~loia~Hlnn guessed"! did if it could be  made on the level. He then asked me il  I could keep a secret, and I told him 1  thought I could. Then he got right close to  me, leaning over the wagon and said:  'Well, my man, here's $100,000 In good money.  Every cent of it is vours if you will takr  this little box of powder and put In into  the cream you servo to president Lincoln  this morning. Pour out the cream in the  measure and put this powder into It. Nobody will over suspect anything and thr  $100,000 is yours.' Ho showed mc a tremendous big roll of money and It looked mighty  nice, but I don't want any of that kind  If it had been as large as the treasury  building it would not have tempted me.  I told the man r wanted and needed the  money, but I could have nothing to de  with any such business if they really  meant what they said. They tried to urgur  the mutter with me. but T wouldn't listen  and drove away, while they cursed me. 1  kept that experience to myself for a long  time."

Frightful Coasting Accident  PLATTSBTJRG, New York, January 30.-  A frightful coasting accident occurred al  Kceseville this morning, in which one  young man was killed and two young  ladies were fatally injured. A large party  was coasting on Academy hill, using .���:.  large bobsled holding from 12 to 20 people.  The.sleigh became unmanageable and ran  into a telegraph pole while going at great  speed. Wilfrid Craves, aged 23 years, wa>  almost instantly killed and his sister, Mis;--  Rachael Craves and . Miss Edith Bulley  were crushed, so that it is feared Ihat thoy  cannot recover. Among the others hurl  wero Harry Miles, leg broken; John King,  arm broken; Georgo Ladue, arm dislocated  Edward Increases the Reward  PHILADELPHIA, January 30.���Edwin  Francilla. being unable to find his wife  after consulting clarivoyants and employing detectives to search this city and New  York, last night raised tho reward of $100  for her safe return to $250. Francilla is pos  it Drew a Good Honse  The production of the musical'festival,  which was given in the opera house last  evening under the direction of Hen*  Steiner, was fully up to the high standard which anticipation had set for it.  Considering also the fact that it was the  first attempt in Nelson at a production  of the kind, the audience, both in point  of numbers and appreciation was most  encouraging.  Those who are at all familiar with  the work will recognize that in deciding  to produce the Stabat Mater, Mr. Kydd  undortoqlc no small*task, and for this  reason the success of last evening's production is more than gratifying. It  presents difficulties which well grounded  musical organizations do not care to  face without even more opportunities  for rehearsal than were accorded to the  members of the local chorus, and it was  therefore evident that the members of  the company must have given their  work careful study.  The opening chorus and quartette,  "Lord 'Most Holy" prepared the audience  for a most enjoyable musical evening.  The quartette was composed of Mesdames Parry and Hannington and  Messrs. Kydd and Grizzelle, to whom  also fell the whole of the solos, duets  and quartettes. Following this Mr. Kydd  sang, the air, "Cujus Animan," whicli  .is conceded to he one of the .finest tp.nnv  solos written. It was well rendered and  was easily Mr. Kydd's best effort in  Nelson.  Then came the soprano and mezzo  soprano duet, "Power Eternal," which  was remarkably well sung by Mrs. Parry  and Mrs. Hannington, their cadences at  the finish being very prettily rendered.  The bass solo, "Through the Darkness"  gave Mr. Grizzelle another opportunity  to add to his popularity. It is a very  difficult number but the soloist acquitted  himself well.   .  This was followed by the chorus  "Thou Hast Tried Our Hearts" which  was at the same time the prettiest and  best rendered, the soft passages being  remarkably well sung.  The cavatina, "I Will Sing of Thy  Great Mercy" Which was sung by Mrs.  Hannington, was one of the gems of the  evening and drew from the audience a  well deserved encore. In the air and  chorus, "lnfiammotus," Mrs. Parry was  heard to advantage. In this the soprano  has to take the high C, and although  suffering from a severe hoarseness Nel-  son's^favdrite^soloist^acquitted^herself  well. The chorus in this was also very  effective in its accompaniment, the tenors and basses producing excellent tones  in their chromatic ascensions. The  '"Amen" chorus was not as well rendered as the other numbers. It is even  more difficult than the others and could  doubtless have been improved upon with  practice.  Following an intermission of ten minutes the Cavaleria Rusticana, by Mas-  ccgni, furnished a very happy diversion, the participants being Mr. Harris,  violin; Herr Steiner, cello; and Mr.  ���Tcwett, piano. They received an encore  and responded.  Perhaps tlie most enjoyable number  of tho evening, however, wns Mrs. Parry's redition of "Ave Maria" in which  she was accompanied by Herr Steiner on  the cello and Mr. Jowett on the piano.  The prelude to this was by Bach and the  air by Gounod. Mrs. Parry's performance in this was artistic and received  a well merited encore.  The Hallelujah chorus from the Messiah, by Plandel, rounded out the evening's programme, and it was splendidly  sung.  The chorus was made up of the following:  Sopranos���Mesdames McLeod, R. M.  Macdonald, Dr. Armstrong, Rutherford,  Walley, R. M. Bird, J. J. Campbell, Otis,  Brown, George Bell, and Misses Lawr,  Temple ton, Manhart, Crickmay, Lennox, Hopkins, White, Skead and Lillie.  Altos���Mesdames Go'opel, Heathcote,  Thurman, Renwick, Flint, Annable,  Brockman, Day, Beer, Wallace, and  Misses Johnstone, Stubbs, Hannington.  Tenors���--Messrs. Chadbourne, Day, R.  M. Macdonald, Carrie, Irwin, Lennox,  Newling, Davidson, Hawthorne, Crickmay and Emory.  Bassos���Messrs. Clarke,.Brown, Smith,  Parry, Thomson, Scanlan, Ludwig, Robertson, Ross, Hawthorne, Sullivan, Bell  and Wadds.

Feared That All Have Perished  VICTORIA,    January    30.���There    is  still no news of the Condor, and Esquimau is  divided  with  hopes and fears.  News is   being   eagerly   awaited   from  the four cruisers   now   searching,   two  looking for wreckage and two scouring  the sea hoping to find the vessel adrift.  Some who hold hopes that the Condor  is adrift and helpless recall conversations with  lieutenants  of the Condor,  in which the officers of the missing warship told of her scant canvas.    If this  is the case, or. her canvas has been ribboned, she   will   be  adrift  helpless y if  still above the   water,   for   her   small  complement of coal will have long since  run out.   Others who have formed i��es-  simistic   opinions   regarding   the   warship's safety recall conversations with,  officers who  decried  the build  of  the^  craft, and spoke ominously from their  lashings in the sea, or of the disability  of the vessel to free herself by reason  of her well decks when she took in a  sea.

''-... ���       ���   - . ���   , ���  "The Rand" Is the world's ��� richest storehouse of gold, all in what the west would,  call a little patch of ground 25 miles either  sido of Johannesburg. It resembles anything but a mining district, having the appearance of a grazing country. The reefs  are accessible and rather easily worked.  The deposits are unique In their unparalleled persistance of ore, which Is interspersed in the quartz and sandstone. It is  not of very high quality, yielding about $10  per ton. There are about 10,000 stamps in  thg district, which can crush about 7,000,-  000 tons a year. The war has blown over  Johannesburg without doing any vital damage to the Dlants.  "Since its discovery, in 1S85, the Rand has  yielded $400,000,000 in gold, and just before  the war was yielding $iuu,000,000 a year, or  one-third of the world's production���a rate  which some years before, when the yield  was but $35,000,000 a year, I had predicted  would come before the end of the century.  "Yet, with all this richness there may bo  some disillusionment .in the next generation. The reefs, it is true, aro over a milo  deep and conditions favor deep mining. Tho  increment in temperature is only 1 .degree  in 200 feet, so that we can mlne^down _0,000  feet. Tho deposits are not, however, as asserted, practically unlimited. I believe tho  "future life of the Transvaal will not exceed  *30 years, whicli means a yield of not much  more than $3,000,000,000. In eight or ten years  after peace tho Rand will have reached its  zenith.  "The diamond mine sat Klmberley will  go on longer. At Klmberley they have in  30 years mined 15 tons of diamonds, worth  $500,000,000. The DeBeers company, which  controls the output and restricts it according to the market, produces yearly 2,000,000  to 3,000,000 karats, worth ->a),000.000. A syndicate purchases the whoie at from $5 to $S  n,.karat. The life of the mines Is Indeterminate, the company estimating it at 14  yars. Mining has been carried down 1600  feet, mostly In extinct volcano craters.  "In South Africa we compress centuries  of mining history into decades and we hold  tho world's record In mining for rapidity  in exploitation, drilling and hoisting. At  Klmberley 2000 tons have been lifted up a  1000 foot shaft ln ono day. while at. tho  'Simmer & Jack,' we sent down a 22 by" 20  foot shaft 2200 feet In one month. We have  at any expense got men from the Calumet  H.

South Africa rivals America in disrespect for tradition. In fact, its brightest  pioneers are Americans, and the leading?  figure among Johannesburg mining engineers Is T-Tennan Jennings, a Harvard graduate. There arc many problems ahead of  the Rand, the chief being that of power.  There nro no navigable rivers and practically no water falls. The Kaffir, of whom  there are 100.000 In the Rand.

' / '  '���*' 4.  "   ������*.-' .. -   ��� ������    +_  ���I-HrW-H-W^l-W'  A new scheme.for, concjtliation.in la-,  bor disputes has been introduced in the;  Ontario legislature.   It is called a con.-;  ciliaton and arbitration act,  and pro-:  A*ides that upon   the   reauest   of   the,  mayor, or other head of a municipality,,  in which a lockout or strike is threat-]  ened, the secretary   of, the. provincial;  labor  bureau   shall   forthwith  proceed]  to such point and use his best endeavors.:  with   both  parties  concerned to averts  the threatened strike or, lockout.   Whatever else may be said of this.suggestion  it must be conceded that it has one y,ery  important   advantage   over   somewhat-  similar enactments which, vest the ini-  tiative in provincial government executives.   If the bill before the Ontario leg-,  islature is given force of law it may. be,  -^accepted^as-assured^that-m^the-event-ol-  threatened trouble its merit will at least  he put to the test.   This is more than,  can  be  said   for   any   enactments   in.  which provincial authorities alone were  vested with authority to set the legislature machinery in motion.    The first  thought that comes to most provincial  ministers, in event of industrial troubles,  is the ordering out of the militia.   Brit--  ish Columbia as well as the other pro:  vinces has found out by experience, that  difficult as it may be to secure the nas:  sage of conciliation and arbitration acts,  it is easy compared with  the difficulty  of  forcing   administrations up   to  the  point of putting them into effect when  conditions are such as to require them.  Much depends upon general Kitchener  now   whether   Canada's   premier   shall  have a chance to shine as a peace maker  between the Briton   and   the   Boer   in  South   Africa.     If   Holland's   offer   ol  mediation is accepted sir Wilfred Laur  rier's chance to win fresh laurels will  be wiped out, and, as   the   press   dispatches indicate, it is now up to Kitchener to say whether it shall or shall  not be accepted.   The suggestion of sir  Wilfred in this capacity is not new.   II  originated months ago in eastern Canada, and has been more or less favorably commented  upon  hy  the  British  press.   For some time, however, nothing  was heard concerning the matter, and it  might  have become entirely  forgotten  hut for its revival by Lawson D. Smith  of  the  South  African  Chartered   Company.    That Canada's first minister is  eminently fitted for such  a mission  is  generally admitted, but it may he that  the Boers would prefer   to   deal   with  people of their own race, when they are  ready to discuss peace, than with Canada's eminent son.    It is just possible  that the achievements of Canada's representatives on the field have not increased the love of the Boers for Canadians,   And If those who have returned  from South Africa are to be believed  they certainly have not. This also is  a consideration, and, in the event of  sir Wilfred being passed over, it will be  no slight to him since it may be taken  for granted that his rejection was due  to the fact that he was too pronounced  a Briton for tlie job.  It is not improbable that executive  clemency will be exercised in the case  of Dr. Harbottle, of Burford, Ontario,  who a few days ago was sentenced to;  one year's confinement in Central prison  for shooting at a man named Stuart.  The concensus of opinion appears to be  that the unfortunate- doctor has already,  been sufficiently punished. He was a  pro-Boer and was foolish enough to say.  so. This was the cause of all his trouble, as the petty spirit of the villagers,  made it as unbearable for himself and the,  other members of his family as their  ingenuity could suggest. It is now intimated that the doctor's tormentors^  were as much to blame as himself and,  that the clemency of the crown miglit,  very properly be exercised.

Lieutenant Davis is on his way to,  his home" in Calgary, but he thinks he  will go once more to South Africa, and  accept a position on the constabulary  under colonel Steele.  Mr. Davis gives an authentic account  _of _the_death^of^Gatl ipg^Gn n^Howard ,���  as he arrived on the spot ten minutes  after the murder���for. it was a murder  ���took place, and learned the details  from a Kaffir servant, who had escen-  ed, as well as from" captain Beattie,  who, though wounded in the affair, was  able to join the column of which Mr.  Davis was a member.  Colonel Howard, accompanied by captain Beattie, an orderly named Northerly, and a Kaffir servant, rode in advance of the column of. scouters, whose  business it was to find the Boers, to  a place called Nooriplatts, on the border  of Swaziland. In a natural declivity a  number of Boer wagons had been collected, althought the Boers themselves,  having seen the column approaching  from the distance, removed behind  some hills. Colonel Howard and his  staff moved forward, and entered the  depression or hollow in which the wagons were huddled together. Seeing that,  he was almost'alone, the Boers from the  hills began firing. Captain Beattie was  hit, so was the orderly, but colonel  Howard remained unhurt. A Boer field  cornet descended the bill, and ordered  the colonel to throw up his hands. This  he did. His arms were taken from him,  and he was brought behind a cart,  where he was deliberately shot by the  field cornet���once in the mouth, and  once, in the shoulder. The.orderly was  riddled with bullets. Captain Beattie  mia'de his escape and rushed for the  advancing column. The Kaffir servant,  though struck, managed to crawl away.  When the column came up the scouts  began to fire, and got their guns in  position. The Boers retreated. Howard  and the orderly were then quite dead.  They were buried side by side.  Practical Sympathy for Victims  NEW YORK, January 30.���The contractors who are building the Rapid  Transit tunnel met today and subscribed  "J3000 to be used for the benefit of the  wife and family of William Tubbs,  master mechanic, who lost his life in  the dynamite explosion of Monday while  (endeavoring to put out the flames in  the dynamite house. Resolutions wore  also adopted expressing their sympathy  for the family of the unfortunate man,  and for sub-contractor Shaller, with respect to whom the resolution declared  absolute confidence   in   Mr,   Shallcr's  UBin�� Trail Eeffnery Product  MONTREAL, January 30.���What promises to become a very important industry for Canada is likely to be established shortly in Montreal. This is a  factory for the manufacture of white  and red lead and litharge���substances  used largely for the making of paint  and glass, and for the glazing of earthenware���from pig lead.  The decision of the Canadian Pacific  railway to establish a lead refinery in  connection with their smelter at Trail  has brought matters to a head. The  refinery, which forms an adjunct to the  Trail smelter, is now being built, and  will be ready for the treatment of the  smelted ore early in May. The commercial importance of the industry will  be realized when it is stated that many  thousands of tons of white and red  lead are imported annually from Germany, while the crude lead ore from  which these leads" are manufactured  has heen exported from the Rossland  and British Columbia mines to Europe.  The new refinery at Trail will take  the silver and lead ore from the smelter, and convert it into pig lead, separating the silver from it. The pig lead  where it will be manufactured into the  leads required by the painting trade,,  will afterwards be distributed for con-'  sumption all over the Dominion.  ,  Van Home's Cuban Schemes  MONTREAL, January 30.���"Sir Wil-:  liam Van Home, in Cuba, has one of  the greatest proposition in the world.:  The money that will be made out of  that island by his syndicate will, I be-1,  lieve, be fabulous."  Mr. W. H. Townsend, traveling passenger agent of the Great Rock island  Toute, who recently spent a year in  Cuba, was.at the Windsor hotel today,'  and spoke in enthusiastic terms of what  he had seen during his sojourn on that  island.  "It does not require very much in-:  sight to notice the vast scope of sir  William Van Home's scheme for the  development of the island of Cuba.:  There is a vast tract of country there  today with absolutely no railway facilities. Sir William will run a road right  through this rich country, and will thus  be in a position to tap marvelously rich  natural resorces. For instance, there  is��� the=H;iinber���the���most���expensive  woods in the world are here in profusion, only waiting to be cut and marketed. The mahogany and rosewood  growths are splendid.  "Then the road will probably lead to  the development of the famous copper  mine at Santiago, which was abandoned  owing to the expense under former condition for shipping tho ore to Havana.  Sir William's line will also run through  the' turquoise region."  9\  91  to  9\  (jjl 36   BAKER   STREET  Ifi^-fi''. 00. 00 .00 . 00 '00 . 00 -00 . 00 '00 . 00 .00. 00 .00.00. 00.  1    lf~    M\   T-i    WM    Till    Mil    Ml    ��W     WI" &��^&'4k-&SLS<  to  to  >0B��f  NELSON,   B.C.  .���^- -*^->__.. ������������n.'^. -b*.*^* -*��^.'^. **^.**��_L'_^  ��� 00 ' 00' 00 ' 0**" ia0 ' 0S0' 00 ��� 00' 00 ��� am* . 0r..  to  to  m  NEW  ARMY  REGOLATIQNS  All In Fluttering Anticipation  WASHINGTON, January 30. ���The  committee on arrangements for tlie re-  iccption of prince Henry held another  meeting today and completed the itinerary of the western and southern 'trip  which will be taken by the prince. The  committee has found itself embarrassed  by its desire to meet the wishes of  prince Henry to sec as much of the  United States as possible in the time al-  (loted to his visit and the wishes of the  various cities and communities has resulted in a programme which allots a  very short period of time to many of the  localities that had hoped to have the  prince with them at least, one or two  days. In Cincinnati his stay will be  less than half a day and in other cases  it has been necessary to cut out important cities or' break up the long projected night runs. Atlanta has been  omitted from the programme and Chat-  tenoga probably will be the extreme  southern point.  No More Luxurious Campaigning  At last we are going" to war, in war fashion..

Boodling in "War Supplies  LONDON, January 30.���The report of  the parliamentary committee to investigate the charges of bribery and corruption made by sir John B. Lundell Maple,  Conservative, against the British officers who purchased army horses in  Austria-Hungary, censured sir John for  unjustifiable attacks on the integrity of  tlie oilicers. At the same time, however, the committee finds that an excessive price was paid whereby horse  dealers wore enabled to divide a profit  of about $75 in the case of each horse,  or animal, which cost the dealers only  ifUO to $85. The committee also expresses surprise at the fact that the  government remounts department took  no steps to ascertain the best source of  supply in Hungary until the South African war had been in progress for six  months, thereby involving the country  in a loss of $60,000 on a single contract.

Stormy Scene in Dutch Chamber  BRUSSELS, January 30.���The chamber of deputies here was the scene of a  free fight today between the Socialist  and Catholic factions. The trouble grew  out of a proposal to prosecute M. Smeets,  a Socialist, for a recent revolutionary  speech. The disorder began in the galleries, which were eventually cleared by  force. Thereafter the uproar was continued on the floor. The Socialists advanced in a body against the benches  of the Catholics, shouting taunts and  epithets. The deputies finally engaged  in a fight, and the sitting was suspended, but when the session was resumed,  the disturbances recommenced and prevented the transaction of business.

Savings Bank Branch  OCRK-NT RAT- OF INTEREST PAID.  FAMOUS AUTHORS FORTUNES  Geraldine Bonner is the Argonaut  A short time ago sir Walter Besant,  the novelist, died in England, leaving an  estate valued at forty thousand dollars.  For years sir "Walter has been one of  the foremost figures in the English lit-  terey world; a grateful sovereign  knighted him; an admiring people read  ' his books. He was as well known on  this side of the water, where not only  his novels had a good circulation, but  where articles of his appeared from time  to time in the best-known periodicals.  His working life had extended over a  long period. 'No writer could have been  more industrious, and few modern ones  have produced so large a number of  books. The epoch of his collaboration  with Rice, to which such charmng tales  as "The Golden Butterfly," Ready Money  Mortiboy," and "So They Were Married," belong, is quite a long way behind  us. After Rice's death, when people  were wondering what Besant would do  now, he quite electrified the public by  the launching of that most delightful  "novel with a purpose," "All Sorts and  Conditions of Men." This book made  such an impression that the "People's  ���Palace" he had dreamed of became a  reality. Many other aooks followed it,  romances mire and simple, like "Arm-  orel of Lyonesse," other novels with a  purpose, tales with a historical background," like "The Chaplain of the  Fleet," and purely historical and antiquarian works on London, on which  subject he was an authority. The period of his active literary life must have  extended over from twenty-five to thirty-  five years, and-during this time his work  was ceaseless. " Yet when he dies he  leaves a fortune that would be considered poor for a prosperous grocer in a  small way of business.  There can be no question that the rewards of literary labor are pitifully  small. Besant is only one of many.  The writing man has advanced from the  position where he lived in Grub street,  . and put food into his stomach, and a  coat on his back by being a flattered  sycophant of some rich man of quality,  to whom he dedicated his books and  wrote poems. AVhen he was too proud  to do. this he starved, like Farquhar,  in a garret, or underwent the bitter  pangs of Johnson, who is said to have  written Rasselas in two days to make  money to pay for his mother's funeral.  A few debonair spirits became the protegees of fashion and beauty, and made  a scrambling passage of success between tbe uncertain favor of princes,  and even more uncertain smiles of  great ladies.  But, for the most part, the writer was  a member of the same family of mountebank entertainers of the public, to  which the player belonged. He lived  by the caprice of the rich, tolerated for  his capacity to amuse, or his power to  turn and sting holding a position little  more dignified than, that of the black  servants who wore silver collars, and  "were'at^once'the'pets^and'the^slaves-ol^  the ladies of fashion.  The writer has risen from these  dark places with much more success  than the actor. The world is still inclined to look askance at the sta-*;e and  its people. But the profession of, letters has come to stand for all that is  brave, dignified, and honorable. The  one clinging remnant of its despised  days is in the inadequate payment that  rewards its efforts. Here and there a  large sum is made; the public hears of  this, and infers that it Is in the ordinary course of things. But astonishingly  few fortunes have been realized from  the literature of fiction, Ouida, it is  said, made one in this century, whicli  she has now lost. Dickens did not leave  a fortune, neither did Thackeray, and  in the Brookfleld letters, then at the  summit of his fame, he several times  alludes to the irksomeness of writing  his weekly article for Punch, but says  he can not afford to give it up, as it  brings him five guineas a week. This  is twenty-five dollars, and one of the  ' most prominent novelists in England  could not afford to lose it.  Money has been made in large sums  by odd books, which strike the public  n.t the right moment, or which, for  some occult reason seize them like an  epidemic. Mrs. Stowe made a fair fortune by "Uncle Tom's Cabin;" Miss  Beatrice Harvadan would have made a  small fortune by "Ships That Pass in  the Night" if she had held her royalties  in it, and had had it copyrighted in the  United States. But these are odd  chances, queer divagation of public  taste, that no one can count on, or account for. And in nine cases out of ten  they are never repeated by tho same  people. The established novelists with  the great reputations leave no large  sums behind them. Some of them have  worked for years eight hours a day, and  produced books that have been read by  the hundreds of thousands, yet they  died comparatively poor. How much  money did Wilkie Collins and Charles  Reade leave when they passed to the  undiscovered country?  In his curious and interesting autobiography Anthony Trollope gives us  a picture of the conscientious, and what  might have been called unspirited novelist, and his manner of work. By the  effort, of years of production he amassed  What would be called, if made in a dry-  THE CANADIAN  BANK OF COMMERCE  " with wnicn is amaixjamatkd  THE  BANK OF  BRITISH COLUMBIA.

He did not live entirely  by literature, as he had a good position  in the postal department, which gave  him a fair income. Yet, his reputation  once established, he worked day in and  day out, when traveling, when visiting,  in the intervals of business. He wrote  at sea on the wash-stand of a rolling  ship, in the train on a blotting-book.  He became recognized as one of the leading realistic novelists of his country and  era; yet, after this untiring lire ot labor, he died as sir Walter Besant did,  leaving a modest fortune that would  have been doubled and tripled had he  been .the proprietor of a fashionable  soda-water and candy store.  Some years ago one of the American  reviews published an article called  ���'The Confession of a Literary Hack,"  which created much talk as being a  plain, unvarnished revelation of the  wretched situation of the writers as regards pay. The "Literary Hack" did  not profess to be a person of star-  spangled talents, or international reputation. He was the hack journalist, reviewer, occasional story-writer, and  producer of special articles. But he undoubtedly knew whereof he spoke. He  contended that journalism and literature  were amongst the worst paid professions in the world, and he appended a  list of his yearly makings in proof of  his statement. In later years, when  distinguished, if illiterate citizens were  writing memories and biographies,  which the literary hack had to write  over, he made as much as five thousand  per annum. In less prosperous seasons  his income ran down toward three. This  amount was earned by the most ardous  labor, many articles needing much study  beforehand. Had he been an ordinary  cleric in a bank, or an insurance  house, he would have received as  much, and in a business where he would  have expended an equal amount of energy, initiative, and brain power, three  or four times the amount.  But it is not the pecuniary returns of  ��� tiie profession of letters which is its  fatal, alluring charm. Those who know  Besant's forty thousand is not a princely  Besant's forty thousand, is a princely  renumeration for forty .years of hard  work. Neither is tit the prestige which,  in the common mind, apears to attach  to those who woo- the muse either in  garrets under the leads, like Zola, or on  a hearth-rug of Russian sables, like  Ouida. It is none of these things. It is  the charm of hopeful uncertainty. The;  passion of the gambler, wliose chances  lie on the turn of a card, is not more'  engrossing than the passion of the  writer who does not know at what moment he may not produce the masterpiece of.the age.,This is the true, delirious, unescapable spell that writing casts  upon its victims. No man or woman,  who drives the pen for a living, or for  a pastime, but knows its siren whispers.  Everybody cherishes exemples of suddenly won successes; every one cherishes  belief in himself as the being selected  by fate to make those successes. A  hundred failures do not dampen one's  belief in one's star, for have not countless geniuses been misunderstood for  years? Age does not dim this hope, for  often in age the conquest of a vast  publichas suddenly and blindinly come,  as it did to Du Maurier.

The revolutionary steamers Daricn and Gaitana appeared on the scene soon after the engagement commenced. The lire of the Chucito  was so well directed that it caused the revolutionary fleet to draw in towards the  shore, where tho enemy's ships were protected by tho batteries. The Chucito and  Boyaca 'then retired unmolested and arrived here at 5 o'clock yesterday evening.  The General Campo was not engaged. The  forces of general Herrera, the revolutionary commander are at San Carlos, ���!() miles  from Panama.

Arthur built houses for the fund at  New Orange, New Jersey, under contract  agreement, and claimed that this agreement had been broken. He asked for judgment for a loss of $53,000 and $17,000 interest. Arthur's attorneys gave notice of a  new trial.  More Trolley Car Victims  PITTSBURG, January 29.���A report  has reached the city that four people  were killed and fifteen or twenty injured  in a trolley car wreck at Wilmerding tonight. ;  Big Clean-up in the Spring  James Stables, M. P, P., representing  the Cassiar district in the local house,  is down from the north to attend the  Liberal convention. Mr. Stables says  a great deal of work lias been done on  the creeks of Atlin this winter by the  placer miners. On Pine creek and the  upper banks there were at least 250 men,  who were engaged in drifting, and all  were getting out large lumps. Several  tunnels have been driven for a distance  of 200 feet or more, and all the miners  are well satisfied with their prospects,  although none can tell how much gold  they have taken out until they wash  their dumps in the spring. On Spruce  creek there are as many men as on Pine  creek���perhaps more���and Mr. Stables  when he went over this creek about  three weeks ago, found the miners well  pleased with the result of their work.  On Boulder, McKee, Otter and other  creeks there are many placer miners at  work with pan and rocker, and, all told,  there is considerable work going on  at Atlin this winter.  None of the hydraulicing companies  are working during the winter, but before work ceased they were all pleased  with the results, and the managers talk  of increased plants and larger outfits  during the coming season. It is likely,  too, that some new outfits will go into  the district C. Capplice, of Butte, Montana, who has had a staff at work in  the district, will increase his staff, and  he is having a dredger built at the present time at San Francisco, which will  be shipped in section to Pine creek in  the spring. This dredger will bejised  on the lower banks of Pine creek, near  the mouth .of that water.  The quartz miners are busy, and all  have good prospects. The copper claims  being developed at the south end of the  lake are especially promising. The Engineer group has made a fine showing,  and Mr. Stables has some good specimens of free milling quartz from his  mine, which carried free gold in large  quantities. The White Moose group, a  free milling proposition, in which some  Victorians are interested, was also turning out well, and the silver galena property on Fourth of July and Munro  mountains were also showing up well.  Much work was also being done with  the Mother Lode, a free milling quartz  proposition on Pine creek, and the  Munro mountain quartz claims were  soon to be extensively developed, arrangements having been made to that  effect with an English syndicate.  to  to  *  *  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  &************************************************���************���****���**%  1890-BBTABHBHBD IN NBL8ON-10O2  Before stock taking this month a  REDUCTION   OF  10   PER  CENT  will be given on every dollar.

He says:  "It is not diilicult to understand how the  rumors of his poverty were set abroad.  Tho special grant of diSCOUO a year in 1��>��  had probably something to do with It, but  we owe it chielly, no doubt, to the prince's  well known sympathy with the race, of  Israel. The king has always been on excellent terms with the Jews, and it is an  open secret that his sympathy has been  misinterpreted. When he attended a Rothschild's wedding in 1SS1, there were not  wanting those who deliberately misunderstood his presence in the synagogue, where  no other prince had ever been since the  llrst decade of tho century. It was maliciously imagined and openly suggested,  that the prince had particular reasons for  being friendly with the race ot* money-lenders, and tho talk ot* his being greatly  in debt that tho prince thought worth while  to contradict it. Sir Francis Knollys" the  king's private secretary, declared that his  master had no debts worth speaking of;  that he could pay every farthing that he  owed Immediately; that there was not a  word of truth ln tlie tales of a mortgage on  Sandrlngham; and that the whole thing  was a ."fabrication, on a par with similar  tales representing the prince as being assisted by llnanciers ot more or less doubtful honesty.  "The truth is that from tho moment of  his birth king Edward has been splendidly  rich. He was born, as an Irishman would  say, with ��00,000 in his pocket, and from  that day until he ceased to be prince of  Wales the duchy of Cornwall yielded that  magnificent revenue. The king married at  22 and parliament gave him Marlborough  House and -��40,000 a year as a wedding present. That, too, has come to him regularly  since 1S03. In 1SS3, when the prince's family  ran away with his money, parliament once  more came to his aid, and nearly doubled  the grant he had received since 1S03. For  eleven years the king has been relieved of  the anxieties of a father for the linancial  welfare of his children by a special grant  of ��3(1,003 a year, bringing his annual public income up to ��130,000 ($G80,000). That is  what it is worth to be prince of Wales.  But even that huge income is much within the mark of the real income of king Edward before he came to the throne, lt has  been stated that the king has a private estate of ��100,000 a year, which would have  made his annual income before his accession something like a quarter of a million;  but not having authority for that statement, wo may leave it out of our reckoning. AU the world knows that the king has  at least two private sources of revenue���  his estates and the turf. As prince of Wales  ho won ��120 a week on the race course. Six  thousand pounds a year represents the  winning of his horses during ,the last ten  years. And Sandrlngham, which was purchased out of his winnings, has a rental of  ��7000 a year, bringing his Income as we  know it to within ��1000 of ��150,000 a year.  "That is the minimum, whatever may be  the maximum, of the revenue king Edward  enjoyed as heir to the throne. The man who  would be poor on ��150,000 a year would be  poor on a million. The house of commons,  when  the  prince  was  receiving  ��100,000 a  year, Increased his allowance by ��30,000,  but the grant was by no means unanimous,  a fact which shows that a considerable  section In parliament considered the prince  as rich enough.  Mr. Mee also recounts the grants to the  prince for his' Indian trip:  "The prince was seventeen weeks in India, and the bill came to over ��1000 a day.  The admiralty spent ��52,000 ln taking him  out and bringing him home. The Indian  government voted ��30,000 to his reception,  and the house gave the prince ��C0,000 as  pocket money. A few years before the  prince's visit to Canada had cost nearly  ��70,000�����16,000 of which had been granted  by parliament, and ��53,000 from the Canadian treasury; but as there was nothing  in this grant of a purely personal nature,  and as the greater part of it was made by  Canada Itself, we may dismiss it from our  reckoning.  We are now able to form some Idea of  the amount of money tne prince of Wales  has had at his disposal during his lifetime.  He was born with ��60,000 a year, set up  housekeeping with ��100,000 a year, and from  18S9 to 1901, had ��150,000 a year. Parliament  gave the princess of Wales ��10,000 a year  on her marriage in 1S63, which totals up for  thirty-seven years to ��370,000. So that we  can now risk, and say with some approach  to accuracy, how much money the prince  of Wales has had at his disposal. Totaling  up all his grants from parliament, his revenues from the Duchy of Cornwall, his  rental from Sandrlngham, and incomes  from other sources, we And that he has  had enough money to make him a millionaire many times over in money. The account  stands  in  rough  figures  something  From Duchy of Cornwall ..��3,480.000  From   parliament    1,936.000  From Sandrlngham estate       260.000  Ten years' winning on the turf.....       60,000  Total ��� ��5,736,000  Payments to princess of Wales ....   . 370,000  Grand total ��6,106,000  "Six millions of money! Roughly, it is  an income of ��100,000 a year through the  whole of his life. Every day the king before  his accession had an income of ��274 5s.;  'every hour ��11 8s. 3d.; every minute 3s.  O'M. Every time the clock has ticked since  the light of Albert Edward dawned upon  the world, his wealth has grown by three  farthings. It loks undignified enough  brought down to farthings, but ��6,000,000���  fortv-five tons of English gold, more than  the mint makes in a year���Is an income not  to be desnised, even in these money-worshipping days.'"  "Since his accession to the throne, even  these princely wages have been increased.  As Edward VII. he roc-elves ��385.000 f-1.-  925.000) a year, or a trifle more than ��1000,  a day.

The case of assault for which the man  Gough was arre.-t.'d on Wednesday last,  came up for hearing yesterday morning at  tho police court bofore magistrate Crease.  It appears that the assault wa.s the result  of a quarrel between Oough and a man  named Boyle on account of the purchase of  a house by the former from the latter.  There was als_ a boat in connection with  the deal which the defendant claimed as  part of the triinsact.lnn, but which was  denied by the plaintiff. As a result of the  difference of opinion a fight ensued, in  which the defendant appears to have boon  the aggressor. The court, while sympathizing with the accused, upheld the dig-illy of  the law by Imposing a line of $5 and costs  as a warning that he was not entitled to  take the law Into his own hands.

Macdonald, as arbitrator, has just  handed down a decision in the matter  of the controversy between Reddy &  Jamison against Albert Klockman. He  awards to Reddy & Jamison, as brokers,  in the sale of the Continental group of  mines $2500 and 49,000 shares of capital stock in the Idaho Continental Mining Company, the corporation organized  to develop the property sold.  This controversy grew out of the sale  of. the Continental group, which was  owned by Albert Klockman, and is located near Port Hill, Idaho. The property was sold to Duluth parties last fall  through J. F. Reddy and A. C. Jamison,  brokers. For his property Mr. Klockman received $250,000 cash and 499,000  shares of stock in the new company  organized to develop the property.  In the matter of settling commission,  Reddy & Jamison asked $500 cash and  49,900 shares of stock. Mr. Klockman  denied their right to that amount. He  agreed that they were entitled to some  commission, but  wanted   to give   only  HAH AND LAKE flTBK*-T8, *T_LSOW  $2500: The parties entered into an  agreement to settle their difficulty before Mr. Macdonald, as arbitrator,  rather than to go into the courts. The  agreement signed by both parties is to  the effect that Mr. Macdonald shallde-  ���cidc all matters in the controversy between tho parties after hearing the law  and evidence, and that his ruling shall  bo final, and neither party is to take  any further proceedings.  The opinion handed down by Mr.  Macdonald this morning is quite lengthy  and all the case is thoroughly reviewed.  The arbitrator come to the conclusion  that Roddy & Jamison are entitled to  $2500 in cash and to 49,900 shares of  the capital stock of the Idaho Continental Mining Company. Reddy & Jamison, by this decision, get all the stock  they asked for, but get $2500 instead of  $5000.
