 3g&��iZP&8S82&?!!/5Ri!&S��S&XiS  vaxssa^fissssBaaiBmi'i^saei  ESABLISHED   1892  TUESDAY  M0EN1NG,  FEBRUARY  11   1902  COKE IS CHEAPEB  HAND OF COAL COMPANY  WAS FORCED  0.  P. E.   OFFERED  CONDITIONAL  REDUCTION OF TWENTY-FIVE  PER  CENT  IN  RATES  GRAND PORKS, February 10.���[Special to The Tribune.]���It is reported here  upon excellent authority that the chief  business,   which   recently   took   Messrs.  Graves and Flummerfelt, of the Granby  smelter, to Toronto and Montreal, was  the very important matter of securing a  reduction in the cost of coke.   And what  is   of  even   greater   importance   to   the  Boundary district is the assurance that  the  local   smeltermen   were  successful  in their mission and that in consequence  of their visit the smelters of the Boundary will effect a saving of $1.25 upon  every ton of coke used..  As was outlined  in The Tribune some weeks ago, in an  interview with   Paul   Johnson,   of   the  Greenwood  smelter,  the high  price ot"  fuel was becoming a very serious consideration in the treatment of the low  grade ores  of the  Boundary,  and| one  which received a very decided emphasis  when the copper market began to break.  In this interview it. was pointed out by  Mr. Johnson that fuel in the smelting of  the  Boundary   ores  constituted   65   per  cent of   the   cost,   and   that   the   fuel  charges   were   the   main   consideration  for the reason that any further economies  in  smelting  must   be   effected   in  them as labor charges had been reduced  to a point which admitted of no further  reduction and the retaining of capable  smelting men.   In the course of his interview it will be remembered that Mr.  Johnson said if a reduction of ten per  . cent could be   effected   in   the   cost, of  fuel it would mean a saving of $14,400  a year to the Grenwood smelter.    For  this reason it is-pleasing to be able to  sr.-'.that the management has effected a  saving in the cost of fuel, not' of ten  per cent as was hoped,   but   of   sixteen  per cent.  From a trustworthy source your correspondent  is   informed   that  while   in  the east Messrs. Graves and Flummer-;  felt lai'V the seriousness of the present  cost of fuel before the management of  the Canadian Pacific Railway Company  land that of the Crow's- Nest Coal Company.    The smelter men it is said had  no difficulty whatever in securing the ear  of the railway management and an offer  was   made   forthwith   to   reduce   the  freight charges on the coke 25 per cent  if corresponding reduction could be secured from the coal   company   on   the  charge for coke on the cars at the coke  ovens.    With the management of the  coal company the work of the smelter  managers was more difficult, but with  the railway company's offer of a sweeping   reduction   in    the   transportation  rate staring them in the face they were  in the end forced to yield and an understanding was arrived at that the charge  to smelters for coke should be reduced  from $4.75 f. o. b. to   ?4.    The  railway  company then more than met the coal  company and cut its transportation rate  from=*?3^to*=?2:50rthus=making"-the=cost-  of coke to the smelters $6.50 instead of  57.75.  February   1st,   warning   the   tariff   extremists against endangering the tariff  bill by insisting on further increase in  tho  duties,  feels  surer of  his  position  with the country behind him, in checking the landed interests' demands.   The  agrarians were also particularly feeling  the pressure of industrial and financial  opinion    that   the    government's    firm  stand has convinced the moderates that  they must acept the bill as it is or get  nothing.   It is understood that the chancellor intends to get the tariff bill' out  of the way as soon as possible, in order  that the general elections of 1903 may be  contested on   other   issues   than   bread  usury.   The results of the bye-elections  have   disheartened   the    Conservatives.  According   to   a   statement   emanating  from Conservative sources, some of the  Conservative members in the close districts have informed the party managers  that they can not make a fight against  a battle cry of bread   usury   after   the  reichstag is dissolved over the tariff bill.  would be returned to China, or handed  over to any other power, were entirely  unfounded. The decision had been  reached from the view point of naval  opinion, in favor of the course adopted.  RUSSIA MUST CLIMB DOWN  Greenwood Local News  GREENWOOD, February 10.���[Special  ��� to The Tribune.]���Mayor Naden is receiving congratulations on the birth of  his first son, which occurred today.  Rev. Dr. Whittington, who is visiting the Methodist churches in the district'spent today in Greenwood.  C. L. Foster, who came from Rossland  last week, is .now accountant in the  Greenwood branch of the Canadian  Bank of Commerce, succeeding L. F.  Ferris, transferred to Vancouver.  R. Helme Nelson, district superintendent of the Dominion Express Company,  arrived here on today's train.  No More Trickery Goes  WASHINGTON,    February    10.���The  negotiations between the United States  government and the government of Russia, relative to Manchuria, are progressing with the exhibition of a great deal  of energy on our part,  though the exchanges are in the kindliest spirit.   The  attitude of the Russian government in  this matter has shifted materially since  the  beginning  of  the  negotiations.-   A  treaty was drawn up originally between  Russia and China, providing for the evacuation of Manchuria by the Russian  troops who have been in military possession of the country since the early  days   of   the   boxer   outbreak.     This  contained a great many rather complex  guarantees in Russia's favor, but a singularly objectionable provision was one  placing the Russo-Chinese bank in practical   control   of   the   commercial   and  material interests of Manchuria.   It was  quickly perceived that the provision executed, practically would exclude Americans   from   competition   in   Manchuria,  which is very valuable as a market for.  our manufacturers' cottons.. .Tht;,. ef ore  Russia's attention was directed to our  existing  rights   under   the   treaty  with  China and also her own promise made  directly  to  the   United   States   government during tlie early days of the Russian occupation of Manchuria.        Apparently our representation were  effectual, for the objectionable proviso  touching the Russo-Cninese bank was  withdrawn from the treaty, and' that  convention, save in some minor respects, was regarded as unobjectionable.  However, it has been discovered that the  Rusian "government, following a practice known in European diplomacy, has  drawn up a secret agreement, with  China, conferring upon the Russo-Chinese bank all the powers contained in  the original treaty proviso. Therefore  the United States government has re-*  newed its objections, not only addressing itself to the Russian government,  but making a very strong protest to the  government of China. It is expressly  declared that in so doing our government has acted independently, though  is it a matter of common knowledge  that the commercial powers'whose interests in Manchuria are almost as considerable as our own, have addressed  similar representations to both China  and Russia.  Was a Million Short  DETROIT, February 10.���Vice president Frank C. Andrews, of the city savings bank, which has been in the hands  of state banking commissioner George  Maltz, since this morning, was arrested-  late this afternoon and arraigned at  9:30 o'clock tonight, on the charge of  "wilfully, fraudulently and knowingly"  securing from the bank, without security and without the knowledge of the  other directors, a sum exceeding $1,000,-  000. He was released on $10,000 bail,  and his examination was set for February 21st. Cashier Henry C. Andrews,  through whom F. C. Andrews is said to  have secured the money by means of  overdrafts and certified checks, is seriously ill at his home with nervous prostration.  DAILY EDITION  C. P. B.JIVIMD  PRESIDENT'S CIRCULAR TO  SHAREHOLDERS  MANAGEMENT WILL SPEND OVER  $22,000,000 ON THE SYSTEM'S  IMPROVEMENT  Smallpox Among the Indians  VANCOUVER, February 10.���[Special  to The Tribune.]���The steamer Tees arrived this evening from the north. News  was brought of another outbreak of  smallpox abong the Naas river Indians.  Three were sick in the village of Is-An-  One, and one death had occurred. The  disease was brought from Ketchikan.  Among passengers by the Tees were five  men who were lost among the mountains of the northern end of Vancouver  island. They started from Quatsino,  for Alert bay, with one. day's food, and  for the remainder of the trip through  the snow they had nothing to eat. The  weather was mild, however, and they  did not suffer from the cold.  PATERSON'S  HEAVY  LOSS  Ead Week for the Boers  LONDON, February 10.���A report received today from  lord   Kitchener,   at  Pretoria, shows last week to have been  the   liveliest   one,   with   the   heaviest,  losses on both sides for several months  :' past.    Lord  Kitchener gives  the Boer  casualties as 69 killed, 17 wounded, 57  surrendered, and   574   taken   prisoners..  The British captured 480 rifles, one pom'  > pom and the usual grist of muitions and  | live stock.  Springfield Has Its Fire  SPRINGFIELD,     February    10.���The  largest fire in the history of Springfield  I; broke out in the Champion chemical  ���plant of the East street shop today at  9 a. m. An hour and a half later twelve  manufacturing plants were in ruins.  The latest estimated loss is $500,000.  Tlie fire was started by the explosioi;  of some chemicals in the Champion  chemical plant.  Fear Bread Usury Cry  BERLIN, February 10.��� The agrarians last evening cheered the earliei  part of chancellor Von Buelow's speech  but their enthusiasm was replaced ir,  gloomy silence when he announced thai  the new tariff bill represents the government's utmost limit of assistance to ag-  ) riculture. The chancellor, having tested  public opinion through the note published in the North German Gazette or,  Will Not Pay Radcliffe  ���DENVER,=February���10.���It���is���announced that attorney-general Post has  decided that William Radcliffe has no  just claim against the ctate of Colorado  or tlie government of the United States  for the destruction of his property by  Are at Grand Mesa, and that governor  Orman will reply to this effect to the  communication from secretary of state  Hay on the subject. The attorney-general's report on the incendiarism at  Grand Mesa, which has been forwarded  to secretary Hay, details the causes of  the bitter feeling against Radcliffe  among the inhabitants of "that region  and shows that the state made every  effort to fix' the responsibility for the  burning of Radcliffe's property, but  failed to apprehend the guilty parties.  Secretary Hay will be told that tho state  is sorry for Radcliffe's loss, but that is  all it can say in extenuation. It is  said that should the British ambassador,  lord Pauncefote, press Radcliffe's claim  for $55,000 damages after receiving the  governor's communication, evidence will  be produced showing that Radcliffe is  not a British subject, having applied for  citizenship in the United States and received his first papers.  Withdrawal of Troops  LONDON, February lO��� In the house  of commons today, tne war secretary,  Mr. Broderick, confirmed the report  that the government had decided to  withdraw the British troops at Wei  Hai Wei, and proceed no further with  building fortifications at the point.  In the house of lords the under secretary of the colonial offlce, lord Onslow,  referring to the government's intention  to withraw the British troops from  Wei Hai Wei, added the information  that the government had no intention  of giving up so valuable a colony as  Wei Hai Wei. It was extremely useful  as a small arms store for gunnery practice or as a sanatarium. The navy and  military officials there had every reason  to believe that Wei Hai Wei would become increasingly useful and valuable.  The Chinese regiment at Wei Hai Wei,  lord Onslow added, would be gradually  disbanded. It has been found that the  position could only be fortified at great  expense. The colonial oflice took over  the administration of the place January 1st.   The rumors that Wei Hai Wei  Will Approximate $8,000,000  PATERSON, New Jersey, February 10.���  The tierce conllagration which burned its  way through the business center of Paterson yesterday, has completely spent its  force and is dying out in the ashes and  broken bricks of its ruins. The firemen,  who hurried from other cities to save the  endangered city, have returned to then-  homes uiid several companies of the local  department have been ordered to their  homes for rest and refreshment, which  they so much need. Conservative opinion  is inclined today to cut $2,000,000 from the  aggregate loss ot* $10,000,000 agreed upon  yesterday, and $8,000,000 will probably be  accepted finally as the actual cost of the  tire. ... ,    ,.        .,  Probablv no fire of equal magnitude and  widespread destrucliveness ever produced  an equally small casualty list, dozens of"  firemen'and volunteers who labored with  them were , slightly injured by falling  bricks and Umber, burned by fire brands,  'of temporarily overcome with smoke, but  only a few ot them needed any surgical operation ror medical attendance. The small  casualty list is explained by the fact that  people had ample warning and time to  abandon their homes before the flames  came upon them. The fact that the great  silk mills escaped the ravages of the flames  is most important, as silk making is the  principal industry of the city, and if they -  had been swept away the suffering among  the working class would have been great.  Another important industry is that of lor  comotive building, and it was generally  important that these works escaped the  flames. All the banks of the city are open  for business today, having made their  headquarters in the Paterson Saving Institution, which was only slightly damaged  by the fire.  The fire made no headway during the  night. Fanned by a strong wind it burned  up fitfully in places during the early hours  of the morning, but whenever it showed  threatening strength the firemen turned  their streams upon it and beat it down.  The firemen were completely exhausted  after more than thirty hours' of continuous  service, but they remained at their posts  and will go on until nothing further remains tobe done __.   There was comparatively little suffering  on the part of those rendered, homeless by  the fire, and the armory, churches, and  public shelters opened their doors to applicants during the night. Practically every  home that escaped the flames was thrown  open in a spirit of broad charity and nearly every refugee found shelter in the house  of some friend. All of the banks and trust  companies announced that their safes and  vaults had proved strong enough to preserve the securities, monies and records  loclced in them at the close of business on  Saturday, Many of those whose homes  and business places were destroyed, were  ruined financially and must give up, but  the majority will be able to start afresh.  PATERSON, February 10.���A feeling ot  confidence in the future pervades the minds  of citizens of Paterson tonight. Mayor  Hinehliffe has the matter well in hand, and  to an offer of assistance which came from  mayor Low of New York, an answer was  returned containing thanks and the assurance that Paterson is managing the cure  of those in need. Money and securities  said to amount to $3,000,000 were safely recovered from the two huge vaults under  the ruins of the First National bank late  In the afternoon. Hooks, papers, bullion and  paper money was found to be uninjured.  Buried beneath the ruins of the city hall  were found the safes which belonged to the  city controller's ollice and in these also  the legal papers, documents and public records were found unharmed.  The greatest tangle in the city affairs  will result in the tax oflice. So far as can  be ascertained all tho records of the department have been destroyed. There is a  set of books lost which showed the valua-  . tion, etc., of each piece of property in the  city, but the assessors have their field  books from which all this can be duplicated. It is said, however, that it is almost certain that the records showing who  had paid their taxes and who had not are  all destroyed, and that there is not anything in existence from which the information can be obtained.  The work of clearing up the burned district has not yet begun, but the firemen  were busy until night with ropes and dynamite tearing down the shaky, walls that  endangered those who had to be inside  the burning area. President David Young  of the street railway, in whose barns the  fire is said to have started, today said that  a.s the result of a careful investigation he  could positively state that the fire did not  originate iu the barns. His search for a  cause showed him the fire had started in a  shed back of the barns, which did not belong to the trolley company.  Fire in a Theater  CHICAGO, February ]0.���The Orpheum  theater on Washington street, opposite the  city hall, was damaged by fire this morning to-the extent of J'iO.OOO. The flames  spread with such rapidity that three attaches of the theater, who were In the  building when the lire started, were overcome by smoke and severely burned beTore  thoy could bo rescued by the firemen. None  will die. This is the third time within six .  months that the theater has been on lire.       I  MONTREAL, February 10. ���At a  meeting of the directors of the Canadian  Pacific Railway Company, today, the  usual dividend of two per cent on the  preference stock for the half year ending December last was declared, and a  dividend of two and a half per cent  for the same period was declared on the  common stock.  The following circular was issued by  sir Thomas) G.  Shaughnessy, president  of the C. P. R., to the shareholders after  the board meeting today:   '.  "The extraordinary expansion of the  company's business during, the past six  or seven years, and the apparent certainty that' the volume wi.ll continue  to increase year by year, renders it essential that the company, should, with  the least possible^ delay, provide such  additional rolling stock and other facilities as may be required for the prompt  and efficient handling of its traffic.  "The gradients and alignment on. the  busy sections of the system -should be  substantially improved, so that the large  and increasing tonnage may'be moved  with the economy requisite for the best  results..  "In view of the present and* prospective, net earnings of the company, the  directors feel justified in proposing that  the money required for these ���: purposes  be i secured by an issue of ordinary capital shares, rather than by other means,  and therefore they recommend that the  ordinary capital share be increased by/*  the amount of $19,500,000. The directors consider that it is due to the shareholders of the common stock that they  should be given the privilege of subscribing for the new stock at. par, in  the proportion of thirty per cent of their  respective" holdings;. of the- oiif-standing  common, shares, on the closing of the  books in London on Tuesday, February  18th, and in New York and ^Montreal on  Monday, March 3rd, 1902, and a resolution to that effect will be submitted to  the shareholders for their approval.   ���  "It is intended that the money thus  raised shall be expended for the following purposes: _Locomotlves, cars and  other equipment, ten million dollars; enlargement of construction and repair  shops at Montreal and at other points  on the system, two million dollars; reduction of grades, improvement of alignment, and second track where required,  six million, five hundred thousand dollars; additional grain elevators, terminals, business and passing sidings, and  other facilities, such as are. being provided from month to month to meet the  requirements of the company's business,  four million dollars.  "These estimates overrun the amount  of the contemplated issue of stock at  par, and therefore to make up the bal:  ance, and in order that the. company's  property may be benefitted to as full an  extent as if the shares had been sold at  a^preniium^on^the-open-market,--it-is  proposed that an amount equivalent to  about 15 per cent of the issue, or. three  million dollars, be appropriated from  the surplus earning funds, to be expended for the purpose above mentioned,  in. addition to the proceeds of the sale  of capital stock. After appropriating  this amount, and providing for payment  of the dividends just declared on the  preference and common shares, there  will still be eight millions, six hundred  thousand dollars in the surplus earnings  fund.  "The subscription price of the new  stock will be payable at the Bank of  Montreal, London, New York and Montreal as follows: Twenty per cent, or  twenty dollars per share, on subscription; twenty per cent, June 27th, 1902;  twenty per cent, August 27th, 1902;  twenty per cent, October 27th, 1902;  twenty per cent, December 27th, 1902.  No interest or dividend will be allowed  on the payments made previous to July  1st, or advance payments, but all shares  fully paid as above stipulated will take  rank for dividend with existing shares  for the half year ending December 31st,  1902.  "No fractional shares will be issued,  but rights may be assigned, and for  this purpose a blank form will be provided. Holders having rights for fractions of shares should make such adjustment of their holdings by purchase  or sale with other shareholders direct,  or through brokers as will make whole  shares."  en or published, which threaten to kill or  advise or instigate any to kill the persons  named. A new feature In connection with  the law is that the secretary of war is  authorized and directed to select a detail  from the regular army to guard and protect the person of the president, "without  unnecessary display," and the secretary of  war Is also authorized and directed to make  special rules and regulations as to dress,'  arms and equipment of such guard and to  publish only such rules and regulations as  he may deem proper.  - German Eoyalty and the President  BERLIN, February 10.���Emperor AVilliam  and prince Henry this morning expressed  concern at the news of the illness of president's Roosevelt's son and received telegraphic replies to their messages of Inquiry from Dr. Hollenben. the German ambassador at Washington. The ambassador  assured the emperor and pz*ince Henry that  the younger Roosevelt was no worse.  AVholesale houses here are filling orders  from New York for German flags, ribbons  of the German colors, hat bands with  prince Henry's name on them, and German  navy belt buckles, buttons, etc., and the  photographers are printing a large number  of portraits of prince and princess Henry  and the emperor and empress, to supply the  American demand.  that captain Simpson of H. M. S. Egeria,  to whom captain Tozler of the Grant handed over the ship's boat, picked up by Indians on the coast, immediately identified  the boat as one from the missing war ship.  No othor wreckage was found on the" coast.  To get the boat from the Indians captain  Tozler had to give them his dress sword.  The Egeria continued the search out to sea,  and captain Simpson also intended to make  a search of the Scott islands off the northern end of Vancouver Island, watch have  not been visited in several years. The Egeria is now expected at Esquimau at any  time.  CANADIANS KICK  DISSATISFIED WITH THEIR  COUNCIL TOOK NO ACTION  Postponed Business to Dance  A short session of the city, council was  held las't evening. The chief business of the  session was the opening of the applications  for the position of fire chief, which "were  twelve ln number. The "following are the  names and addresses of the applicants: T.  Acherman, Westminster; H. E. Campbell,  Vancouver; Charles Gummings, Rossland;  Thomas Deasey, Victoria; E. B. Irving,  Nelson; J. A. Lester, Vancouver; T.-.'W..  Lillie, Nelson; John C. A. Little, Portage  La Prairie; Thomas H. Hanuel, Winnipeg;.  F. H. McKenzie, Grand Forks; Ed Reece,  Grand Forks; Thomas Sargent, Toronto;  and John F. Taylor, Toronto. On the motion of aldermen Scanlan and Selous it was  agreed to leave the selection of th fire chief  until the adjourned meeting to be held  during the present week.  The report of the public works committee  was presented," but was also received without reading until the adjourned meeting.  The report of the health officer was received and was read by the city clerk. It  consisted of several pages ~of closely typewritten matter, and contained a number  of suggestions. It emphasized the Importance of providing an isolation hospital and  equipping it with a competent trained  nurse, also the necessity of better quarantine and.vaccination regulations. Regarding  the water supply of the city the report  urged the importance of connecting Cot-  tonw-ood creek with the. Cotton wood lake.  Reference was further made to the immediate necessity of providing filtering beds,  which would be required in the future. The  milk supply of the city was declared to be  free; from tuberculine, which was ascertained by a. careful analysis and examlna--:'  tion by J. A. Armstrong."  1 "Referring to the Japanese and Chinese  element of the city it. was observed that  their sanitary condition was greatly improved, but the wash houses on Victoria  street and Cottonwood creek would soon  become a menace to the city, as the former were not connected with the city sewers and the latter wore polluting the waters  of the creek, and it was urged that steps  to connect the same should be taken as  soon as possible.  The report showed that there had been  51 deaths during the year, several cases of  smallpox, none of which were fatal, nine  deaths from tuberculosis, four deaths from  typhoid fever. On motion of aldermen  Hamilton and Selous the report was accepted and submitted to the board of  health.  Application was made by Bullock-Webster for electric light connection. The superintendent of the city lighting returned  the probable cost at $100,and the work was  authorized to be performed.  A resolution was moved by aldermen  Scanlan and Drew that at the expiration  of the time limit of sixty days after the  serving of notice by the city clerk requiring  householders to complete their sewer connection that the city officials be empowered  to prosecute the same without further referring the matter to the city council.

This he declared impossible without close commercial reatlons  between the two countries. He believes a  reciprocal tariff will be nocessary, and  said he felt confident that a reduction of  50 per cent on Cuban sugar and tobacco,  Imported into the United States would be  granted.

But the men are the sufferers,  as their action, though natural, is considered mutinous.   The military authorities have broken faith; with the Canadians in several instances.

As might have been expected "the man-;  agers.of tile large American railway  systems have succeeded in [demonstrating, that given a monopoly in their respective territories they are in a positiion  to pay a higher rate of wages and offer  lower' transportation, rates' tfian~"tney  could in districts where they were oblig-  ^ed^to-TOeetWmpetitio^^  this is plain, as competition in a given  territory means a doubling of operating  expenses without any material increase  in the volume of business. If therefore  a railroad has a monopoly in a given  district, anil secures double the business that would come to it with a competing, line, with no relative increase in  operating expenses, it is manifestly possible for it to pay higher wages and  quote lower rates than would it be possible with competition. But while this  possibility of higher, wages and low  rates ��� presents itself, it cannot be said  that it is seized upon with any degree  of avidity by .railway managements  enoying such immunity from competition. At least the commissoiners enquiry failed to establish any such circumstance. It is here, however, that  the Toronto Globe suggests the remedy  of the commonwealth should be applied.  It recognizes that monopoly is capable  of great "economi.es, but, in order that  the-people, as a whole shall share in  such advantage, it points out that the  one* thing required is government control of existing railways. This it suggests is. .Canada's remedy rather than  the, expensive plan either of purchasing  them.or duplicating them.  The Dunsmuir government may have  a frail hold upon the confidence of the  electors of the province, as its detractors proclaim with such growing emphasis, and it may ill deserve that small  measure of confidence so grudgingly  conceded to it. But although such  statements have been repeated week in  and week out for several months, especially in that portion of the press  which is Liberal in its leanings, it cannot be said that anything in recent political happenings warrants any such assumption. A Liberal convention was  possibly the last place that tho3e  friendly to the Dunsmuir government  would look for support.   Yet something  approaching at least a temporary endorsement of the Dunsmuir goyernment  was jthe logical effect ofthe convention's  action in selecting Joseph Martin as  leader. Joseph Martin for a few months  -filled the position of premier of the province. He at present holds a seat in  the legislature; and frankly says he expects to again be premier. But for some  time past "Mr. Martin has been supporting the Dunsmuir government. He acknowledged the corn before his name  was placed in nomination for the leadership,' and he supplemented the admission with the further statement that in  all probability he would continue to tup-  port the Dunsmuir government. He gavr.  as his reason for such a course his own  conviction that whatever might be said  concerning the present administration  it was preferable to any government  which might be formed out of the Conservative bolters who were at present  fighting it, despite 'such .-leaven'-as might  be furnished by the inclusion of Victoria's eminent Liberal in the person of  E. V. Bodwell. Having made this declaration Mr. Martin's name was placed in  nomination for the-Liberal leadership.  He was the choice of the convention on  the first ballot, and forthwith was made  the unanimous choice. It cannot be  said, therefore, that is with, any degree  of fairness, that the Liberals of the  province are going "gunning"-for Dunsmuir and his government.  THE CANADIAN  REBELLION  Likened to Boer Revolt  The Times* report of Mr. Chamberlain'^ speech in' the British house of  eomjmons on January 20th shows that  the 'history of the rebellion in Canada  in 1J837 is being considered in relation  to the future of South Africa." The  speech also shows the attitude of the  goyernment as to peace overtures. Toward the end of his speech, on the Liberals* amendment to the address, Mr.  Chamberlain said:  -^I-now-come-to=the-ppsition-occupied-  by the leader of the opposition and his  friends. The right honorable gentleman  has been endeavoring to fix on the government a policy which we have never  expressed. He has said that our.policy  is a policy of extermination, "-y crushing a brave race into the dust. It is  perfectly ab"smd and rid/culou-; to confuse'a policy of unconditional surrender  with a policy of extermination. The  right honorable gentleman might think  we were in the middle ages, when a policy of unconditional surrender meant  that a town was to be given up to  sack, that outrages on women and the  confiscation of property were to be allowed, and the population decimated.  ���If we ever used the term "unconditional  surrender" we meant nothing of that  kind1.  > I am today challenged to adopt the  policy of lord Durham in Canada. It  is to me a very extraordinary thing  that gentlemen who talk about the precedent of Canada have evidently not  taken the trouble to read the history of  those times. They speak as if there were  some similarity between the two cases.  The honorable gentleman for Blland  discriminated���and laid great stress  upon the discrimination���between the  judgment of lord Durham and the conduct of his majesty's present government, and he forgot to tell you���because,  perhaps, he did not know���that the policy of lord Durham was a policy of unconditional surrender. When the rebellion was put down nothing but an  unconditional surrender was accepted,  but let me for a moment in two or  three words remind the house what took  place in Canada. The Canadians had  great grievances, which the Cape rebels  had not. The Cape rebels had every  liberty, every right, every privilege  which the Canadians desired or which  they have since acquired. There was  justification���or an excuse���for the conduct of the Canadian rebels. There was  no justification of any kind for the conduct of the Cape rebels. In the case of  Canada there was justification, which  was admitted by. subsequent legislation.  The wrongs of the Canadians were subsequently redressed, but they were redressed on the initiation of this country, and not as terms or conditions of  surrender. Mark the difference. What  we are going to do in the future, and  we urge that it should not be made a  term or condition of surrender.^ That  was exactly the case in Canada. But  the rebellion in Canada was a triuing  matter. It did not put this country or  Canada itself to any considerable loss.  The first rebellion lasted 22 days. Lord  Durham, after that rebellion was put  down, refused amnesty to the leaders.  What penalty have we put upon any  man who has taken a leading part in  the rebellion?   Nope.  Nobody has been shot for treason;  people have been shot for murder and  for other military offences, and. people  have been condemned to long terms of  penal servitude for similar offences, but  I believe the sentences upon those who  have been guilty of treason, pure and  simple, have in almost every case been  extremely light and lenient. Then lord  Durham not only refused amnesty to  the ringleaders, but he banished some of  the to the Bermudas, it is rather curious how he anticipated the present  state of things.  "A Nationalist member���Cromwell sent  Irish to the Bermudas.  We also have banished some of the  leaders to the Bermudas.- But. the government of the day rejected lord Durham's proposal, and lord Durham resigned in high dudgeon because his proposal to banish the Canadian leaders of  the rebellion to the Bermudas was not  accepted by the government of the time.  Immediately after his departure, or  nearly so, a renewal of the insurrection  followed. A gentleman who, I believe,  was universally recognized as a sober-  minded man, in writing about the matter, said to lord Glenelg that it was  excited by the recollection of past impunity and the hope of future amnesty.  After all, in proportion to the number  engaged, it seems to me that the severity which was carried out on that occasion has exceeded anything which up  to the present time has taken place in  South Africa. For on the whole I find  that 25 persons were executed and 158  leaders were either banished or transported to New South Wales. I doubt  whether we have reached those numbers at present, and certainly w<* are  dealing with a very much larger poula-  tioni That is the historical parallel to  which the honorable gentleman opposite  appeals. I accept the parallel, and certainly I can justify anything that we  have done from that.  Another parallel has been brought forward, again with the least possible acquaintance with the facts. No one has  ever' contested the magnanimity of the  United States in dealing with the rebels  at the time of Lee's surrender; but what  were the terms. The terms were unconditional surrender. In the first place,  whilst the lives of the soldiers were  spared, no political conditions whatsoever were laid down. The United States  government were free to deal with them  as they pleased, and afterwards it is  perfectly well known that they considered' themselves. free to deal with the  ex-president .of the confederacy on a  criminal charge. There was universal  confiscation,=affecting--~every^owner^.of.  property. Then, again, politically, representation was withheld from them for  a number of years���I think it was ten  year's. When it was granted to them  it was granted to their former slaves at  the same time, so that they were placed  under the political supremacy of their  former slaves.  I beg the house to contrast that with  what we are doing. We certainly shall  be less hard than the United States of  America. As I say, we do not propose  ���wc shall not propose���any general  confiscation. But we decline to be bound  at the time of surrender to any special  conditions which may embarrass us in  the future. The course or the principles  which were adopted by the United States  of America, although they did not immediately lead to harmony, did lead to  harmony in the end., and after a puriod  which was a mere trifle in the life of a  nation brought about a complete reunion. I say we have every indication  of the same result will follow in the  case of the Boers. It Is no slight thing  that at the present moment we have  2000 men who are native burghers of the  Transvaal fighting on our j-ute against  the men who are' -still in the field���  (cheers)���fighting' because they believe  the latter are enemies of their country.  Only the other day we received a communication from the prisoners in the  Bermudas expressing their entire disapproval of the continuance of the war.  I speak of these as indications. In  Ceylon it was suggested that the Boers  should join the British forces in India.  At once something under 200 men gave  in their names to fight in our pay and  under our flag, and we were shown that  if we had been willing to go on with the  proposal, which we rejected on various  grounds. 800 men would have been willing to follow the British flag. If-that is  going on among the prisoners, if it is  already going on in the Transvaal, why  should we assume that after peace has  been made the great majority will not,  recognizing their defeat, be willing to  settle down as peaceful citizens?  One other word. There is the question of amnesty. It is said that we  ought to grant a general amnesty. When  peace is restored it is wise to offer the  largest possible amnesty that, can be  offered in view of justice to those who  have suffered, in view of our own future  security and in view of tho general policy of nations  in such  circumstances.  00 ' 00' 00 ' 00' 00 ' 00*00 '00 t**'-^ ��� *��*"fc. ���><��v- <ST^I **<--^ ��� "^ ��� *"<��^  to  �� NEW SPRING  AND SUMMER DRY  GOODS {  to  9\  9)  9\  9\  to  9\  to  Just received a large importation direct from manufacturers the following lines of new spring and summer dry goods.

There will be no extermination of the  people. The utmost that will be done  will be to deal with those who have  committed military offences or ordinary crimes; and to deal in a more lenient way, probably by reference to the  franchise, with those who have shown  themselves worthy to use it. These are  our views as to the settlement that can  be made and as to the spirit in whjch  we shall approach it. I believe these  views are the views of the vast majority  of the people of the country.  In answer to a question Mr. Chamberlain said: No sentences of banishment  have been promulgated, and leaders captured since September 15th are for. the  present being detained like ordinary  prisoners of war.

A Twain Story  Mark Twain told & good story of  "Ho;w he met the king," at the recent  British dinner in New York, celebrating  king Edward's birthday. While he was  in England, he said, his head was once  taxed���he believed, as gasworks. He  wrote queen Victoria a friendly letter  of protest. He said, "I don't know you,  but I've met your son. He was at the  head .of a procession in the Strand, and  I was on a 'bus. Years afterwards he  met the prince" of Wales at Hamburg'*.  They had a long talk and walk together.  When bidding him good-bye, the prince  said: "I am glad to have met you  again." This remark troubled Mark  Twain, who feared that he had been  mistaken for someone else, perhaps  *bish15p=P6ttW;"^He^communioatedI=1this-  suspicion to the prince, who replied,  "Why, don't you remember when you  met me in the Strand, and I was at the  head of a procession and you were on  a 'bus?"���Mexican Herald.  Purchase of Telegraphs  Every telegraph company that was in  existence in 1S8G, and every telegraph  company that has been organized since  that time, has filed with the postmaster-  general of the United States its written  acceptance under seal of the terms of  the act of congress of July 24, 1886,  agreeing thereby, in consideration of  the right if way over post roads and  through government land and under or  across navigable waters, to transmit  messages at rates to be fixed annually  by the postmaster-general, and to sell  its lines to the United States at a price  to be fixed by arbitrators, one to be appointed by the postmaster-general, one  by the company, the third by these two.

A Bryden in Chamber's Journal  On a bitter winter's morning- ol" the year  1537, Thomas Goodwin, peasant, rose, from  his pallet, shifted tho sheepskin coverlet  over his wife and babe, and in half darkness began to array himself for the Held.  Thomas awoke in no happy mood this  nark January morning, lie was out. of work  and nearly starving; his wire lay abed  wilh her first child, now only ten days old.  Do what he could he did- not know where  to turn for a day's wage or food must bo  cot somehow.  Thomas ���"'--'"��� win, strong of thews, a  giant in'S^.-rre, and a willing worker,  was just now, by no fault of his own ln  a hard case. The constant growth of the  wool and the spread of sheep throughout  Kngland had ruined the yeoman as it had  ruined many of his kind. At Michaelmas he  W had given up the struggle, and his small  >' patrimony had been acquired by the neigh-  of the great lord of Ihe manor, sir Edmund  Wing,   knight of  thr   shire.  Sir Edmund was one who jumped alertly  with the spirit of tho time, lie was zealous,  nay, a searching I-'rotestanl; and Thomas  Goodwin had lallcn under his displeasure  for thai, in his slow Saxon way, he had  not turned liis cloak of religion over ciulck-  fly. The nickering firelight fell upon the  woman's race as she sat up in bed and took  ihe porringer from her husband. Where  was he going she asked him. To Tliorue-  'fiekl, a neighboring' village, he uns-vered,  to see If by any chap.ee lie might get work  there.  Thomas Goodwin tramped steadily  through the snow. Crossing a belt which  lay between him and the more.open country, he presently entered upon a spreading  stretch of grass land���now sheeted ln with  snow���whicli formed a corner of the park  of the great lord of the monr, Sir Edmund  Wiuff.  Just before he came to tho high stile  which gave exit from the park to the  arable Yields beyond, Goodwin suddenly  halted. Something in. the snow arrested his  [attention.  ! A great hare had come loping down the  park,   picking  its   way  delicately   through  'the   snow   covering,   passing   beneath   the  stile  and   moving  out  over  the. Molds  be-  r.'yond. The man's hungry eyes were riveted  on   those  delicate  footprints.   If  he  could  Out secure  that hare his wife would  fare  "sumptiously   in   the   rich   Mesh   and   broth  jfor two days at least,  even if he himself  ' picked a bone or two.  Thomas looked around���not a figure  showed anywhere on the whole landscape.  The keepers he well knew were on the  .other side of the park, looking to the feeding of the deer,-.which in this hard season  wero being helped with the comforts of hay  and straw.  It was a risk, but Thomas 'mind was,,  quickly made up. The snow would be again  tailing in an hour or two and his footprints  and tho hare's would he obliterated. This  was a sequestered corner" of the park, seldom visited by the knight or his servants,  He was like most peasants of that period,  skilled in woodcraft, and had a pretty  ���shrewd idea whither the hare, was making  his -way. The instinct of the wild creature  ���warned it of a heavy snow fall about to descend, and the animal was now on its  way to some warmer and more cozy corner for shelter.  The tale so plainly told ln the snow,  came to an end just as Thomas Goodwin  had expected. Passing a thick piece of  bracken, below a sheltering wall of dark  grreen'grose, the man's "keen eye noted the  brown skin of a great doe hare, nestling  snugly In the form in-which she had so recently ensconced her self.  His eye carefully avoided hers, but just  as he passed her he gave one swift whirl  of the crabtree staff, which, crashing into  the skull.of the hare laid her instantly  dead. Within an hour the hare was skinned  and simmering in an iron pot, while  Thorn as and his wife, wonderf u 11 y ..bright-.  ehed by this unexpected piece of good for-  'tune, were devising fresh plans for the future.  But 'Goodwin's successful raid on the  hare had not entirely been unperceived.  ���fpst as Thomas had crossed that corner  and caught sight of the hare and halted,  sir Edmund Wing had entered his dining  hall, and before falling to breakfast happened to be surveying the landscape.  At that moment a llgure came Into view,  grossing the corner of the park. It was a  :lull dark morning, but. sir Edmund Wing  had a sharp eye, and ho noticed that the  "iguro stopped and looked around before  passing on. The knight's brow contracted.  Presently, after an Interview with ills  ���toward, ho called for his outdoor gear,  fowiird the end of the avenue sir Kdmund  .urned away from the well trodden path  md plunged across the smooth while waste  .hat lay' before him.  lie plowed his way steadily for nearly  wo furlongs. And then he suddenly came  ipon the traces he expected to find. The  ootprints told a clear tale and the knight's  >road brow knit ominously. Mere hnd a  aire passed. There had a man halted,  razed, and, taking up the tracks, pursued  lis quarry.  Ten or fifteen years before, In the fif-  eenth year of the reign of the present king  lenry, the knight hud busied himself for  he passing of a statute whicli provided I'or  ust such an offense as he now saw delin-  aled In the snow. Thus ran the statute:  'None shall trace, kill or destroy any hare  i the snow, in pain of Ss Gd for every such  'ffensc,' which penalty assessed in scs-  ions shall go to the king; but in a Leet,  o the lord thereof."  The knight now sot himself to follow the  ootprints of this man. Who was the varlet  vho dared   Ihus to break tho law on his  ind? He marched briskly on the snow and  resently  came   upon   the   scene    of    the  fi'are's death.  Tho   quick   eye   of   the   sportsman   saw  eadily   the   whole   tragedy   in   little.   Sir  idmund  cleared  away with  his  staff tlie  now  which  had carelessly  kicked  up  by  [Thomas Goodwin to cover up the traces of  lis  capture.   There,  as  he  expected,  were  he signs of death, a red, circular stain or  :wo.   where  the  hare's blood  had  dripped  *n the spotless snow.  Meanwhile the dark, leaden sky had bo-  come more overcast. Flakes were beginning  co descend lightly, tho forerunner of a  ighty fall. He folded his clonk more  tightly about him and entered the woodland, still following the man's footprints.  In little more than half an hour he stood  before the cottage of Thomas Goodwin.  The snow now fell in thick blinding flakes.  For the last ten minutes all footprints had  been obliterated, but sir Edmund now kn?w  v here his quarrv had taken refuge, and  he had struggled through the rising hurricane straight for the mud hovel where  were starved Thomas Goodwin and his  wife.  Without word or knock of warning Hip  knight of Cleathercote lifted the latch and  entered the poor dwelling, vigorously shook  the snow from his person and looked  around him.

If the man had  had anv sentiment of pity in his heart it  would surely havo arose at that moment  to rebuke him.  But in sir Edmund's heart, In the stead  of pitv, only a tierce resentment burned.  The smell of cooking whicli had greeted his  nostrils told him quickly what had become of the hare. A bloody knife on tlie  table and the skin completed the chain of  evidence.  The man, who had been stooping over  his cooking pot on the rude stone hearth,  had straightened himself as the knight entered, and making a clumsy obeisance, now  looked at him ruefully, tongue-tied and  Willi fear.  "So," said the knight in a harsh, angry  voice, "tis as I had expected, you are the  man who steals my hares, snares0 my  pheasants, and 1 dare wager, slays ray  deer. 1 have watched every move in your  knavish lawbreaking, and by my troth you  shall suffer for it."  "Your honor���reckon I was tempted. I  killed de hare, 'tis true, hut 1 been't a  poacher by nalur' as some be. We starve;  de wife be sick and weakly. A man must  live. 1 cannot get work, and dis bitter  weather do try us sorely. I cannot see my  wife and babe die for lack of victual. What  be a man to do?"  "Do?" roared the knight angrily. "Why,  take that hare from t^io pot, put it into  Ilia sack, it will do to feed my dogs, and  come to the manor with me. I'll teach theo  knave to steal my game from my park  right under my very nose.''  "I won't part with do food, asking your  honor's pardon, and that's flat."  Sur Edmund uttered a tierce oath, strode  lo tho hearth, kicked tlie pot over with his  boot and Curios'*,* trampled the piece of half  cooked tlesli Into the fire and ashes.  In a sudden impulse ot frenzy, Goodwin  snatched the long knife from the table;  the knight's back was towards him. With  all tlie energy of his huge frame and the  frantic hatred, of despair and passion, he  drove the weapon deep between Iho ribs  of his enemy and  destroyer.  A gasp or two, a. convulsive struggle of  the limbs and chest, and in a few seconds  tho knight of the shire lay there as much  clay as the walls of the hut around him.  Tho man and woman looked at one another with eyes in which sickening horror  and tlio birth of a haunting fear struggled  for  tho mastery.  "AVhat���what shall ns do?" he gasped.  The woman,  pale, and  trembling as  she  was,  had  the readier wit.  Her instinct of  self preservation wa.s the keener.  "Put him under the bed until nightfall,  and clean that knife."  Goodwin did as he was told, shuddering  at his foil task, tidied up the cottage, destroyed all trace of the hare and then opened the door and looked out.  Once, indeed, a sharp knock came to the  door, and a head was thrust inside, and a  blue-faced forester Inquired, "Hath sir Edmund been seen this way today?" Goodwin answered "nay," and the man passed  hastily on. It was a fearsome moment but  nothing came of it.  That evening, Thomas Goodwin, fastening a long coil of rope about his waist, and  carrying on his back a ghastly burden,  staggered through the forest, and after incredible exertion reached a huge oak tree  in the woods more than a half "mile away.  This oak ho had known in his boyhood,  when, to his vast delight, he had found  at tlie crown of tlie massive bole a great  cavernous hollow. He reached the tree, fastened a running noose under the armpits  of the now stiff corpse, and then, with the  free end of this stout rope in his grip,  climbed from branch to branch until he  had reached his resting place.  Then, with tho exertion of all his mighty  strength, slowly, slowly he drew the grisly burden up toward him. The man's iron  sinews cracked and stretched, yet the task  was achieved, the rope loosened from the  heavy corpse, and then the body of sir  Edmund "Wing finally vanished from tlie  eve of the world. With a dull, crashing  thud it reached the bottom of the hollow  tree.  Sir Edmund Wing's murder was never  discovered. The countryside was searched,  the greatest anxiety prevailed, but the  snow and oak tree effectually ballled  every effort of the searchers.  ^=--IU^was=belIe.ved=that���during-^that- wild  tempest, the knight had lost his way,, had  either fallen into the neighboring- river or  perished in a snow drift in some deep bottom or pit. The search in time was abandoned, and the wonder of tho knighl's disappearance finally faded into a mere memory.  More than 200 years later, when the old  oak had rotted lo pieces and some bones  wore discovered in its recesses, the Wing  family had died out, and the estate had  passed inlo tho hands of dillorcnt owners  and the mystery was forgotten.  The shock of that dreadful day and  night killed Goodwin's wife, who died and  was buried a fortnight later. The man and  Ills child lived on, and they slill make their  .homes within sight of the pleasant South  Downs.  And il is a curious fact that a hare in  that family is looked upon as an unwholesome or poisonous food; and to this day not  a man or woman of the blood will partake  of 11.

LAY, Manager.  m  to  to  to  9)  to  MARTIN'S POSITION DEFINED  "I fully  by   Mr.  Monopoly and Freight Bates  The wide attention given to recent utterances by James J. Hill with regard to  railway competition shows that the public  have learned Ihe futiltiy of many schemes  formerly advocated for dealing with the  freight rate problem. If we were confronted  with the alternative of uncontrolled monopoly, as at present, and competitive lines,  the latter would no doubt be preferable;  but it is within tha power of the Canadian  government to create a commission with  power Lo regulate rates, and that would  no doubt bo preferable to Ihe illusory advantages of competition. Mr. Hill pointed  out to the caltle raisers in Fargo, North  Dakota, that without competition rates  had been reduced faster there than any  place in the country. This seems to be substantiated by the following from a skelch  of Mr. Hill in Harper's Weekly:        "'  "It has been said a hundred times, but  it can be said again, that James J. Hill,  from the time he was working on the railway to the present moment, when he is  working on problems bigger than any monarch ever thought or attempting, has,  while working for himself, made the Northwest. Everything was there, to be sure,  except inhabitants and a way of getting in  and out. He made his work transportation.  He built railroads; lie absorbed other railroads; he reduced rates as wages rose, until now rates arc lower and wages higher  than anywhere else in the world."  That a railway enjoying a monopoly can  give cheaper rates and pay higher wages  than under competition requires no argument. But will it do so? A railway will not  charge as little, but as much as It can.  A monopoly enables a railway to charge  low rates, but It also enables it to charge  high rates, and if there is no restriction or  control the latter course will naturally be  be followed.. Tho best policy in most parts  of the Dominion is a monopoly enabling the  railways to charge low rates, and a commission to compel them to do so.���Toronto  Globe.  Has a Strong Following  Liberals who are inclined to quarrel  wiUh the decision of the recent Vancouver convention, in making Joseph Martin the- leader of the party in this province will find little solace in the press  reports of the Liberal gathering. From  the telegraphic summary of the proceedings it. was made to appear tlhat Martin  won by a bare majority. This, however, was far from being the case. There  was but one ballot taken, and as is usual  in such cases there were a number of  complimentary votes. There were but  t'aree candidates who received a vote  greater than that of their home delegates.  These were Joseph Martin, and W. W. B.  Mclnnes, and J. C. Brown, two of Martin's staunchest supporters  Previous to the voting upon the question of leadership Mr. Martin took occasion to make a statement. He said  hie intended to bend his course in the  house entirely in the interests of the  Liberal party, having been elected as a  straight Grit. He supported the present  government last session, toward the end  of it, and possibly might support it this  session, because he preferred it to a  straight Conservative government,  which be believed would be formed, if  the present coalition were defeated. In  other words, he preferred Mr. Dunsmuir  and his associates to such a government  as Messrs, Helmcken, McPhillips, McBride, Garden, Tatlow, and others might  form, even if leavened by the presence  of B. V. Bodwell. He would take his  position in the house entirely untrammelled, and would agitate for the passage of a redistribution bill before any  other legislation was allowed to come  up in the house.  John Oliver, M. P. P., said:  endorse the statement made  Martin." c  The question of electing a leader was  then taken- up for consideration. Many  of the delegates from the Upper Country  were desirous that the choice of a leader  should not be made at the present convention, and a vote by ballot was .taken  on the point whether or no the election  should take place, which resulted in G5  for and 25 against. The election was  accordingly proceeded with. Ballot papers were distributed, the roll was called, and delegates stepped forward and  cast their votes into a hat, held by the  scrutineers. The result of the count  was declared as follows:  Joseph Martin  47  W. W. B. Mclnnes. 17  J. C. Brown    8  G. R. Maxwell   4  James McQueen  4  John Oliver  3  Richard Hall   3  Stuart Henderson  1  Spoiled Ballot   1  Mr. Martin, having a clear majority  over all of 7 votes, was declared elected,  and upon motion of W". W. B. Mclnnes,  seconded by J. C. Brown, the election  was made unanimous.  There__was considerable, cheering at  the announcement of Mr. Martin's election, and the enthusiasm was redoubled  when unanimous endorsation was given  it.  The new leader was called upon for  a speech, and in responding, acknow-  legded the honor that had.been conferred upon him. He had been an active  politician for a long time, and had experience what might be called a varied career. In some respects his party  had been good to him. He had declined  high positions offered to him. by the  Dominion government, positions which  promised relief from care, but there was  no position which could have been offered him in connection with his {sojourn in British Columbia which could  have been so acceptable as that received at their hands, although that position had no great comfort in it from a  worldly point of view. It mean great  responsibility, and probably a continuation of that abuse which he was so  much accustomed to.  He asked the hearty support of all  the Liberals of the province, and believed he would get it. He would endeavor to so conduct himself that not  only those who voted for him, but  those who voted against him, would  never have cause to be sorry for. casting their choice upon his shoulders.  In political matters he was sanguine,  and, like his friend Mr. Brown, believed  victory would soon come. If it did not  he would not be discouraged. While  prepared (having been chosen by them  to represent the Liberals of the province) to act as the premier of the province, still if the decision of the people  be otherwise, and their opponents were  chosen, he was just as prepared to  stand up in the house and fight as leader in the opposition.  It was not necessary for him to speak  of his platform, as that had been decided by themselves. Within the four  corners of that platform were the principles upon which the campaign must  be fought. He was absolutely bound  by that. Not only would he advocate  these principles in the campaign, but  after they were elected would see that  they were fully and completely carried  out.  The campaign of the new Liberal  party was to commence tonight. He  discredited the idea of some of their  friends who had left them, that the convention would not be accepted by the  9}  9>  to  ft  ft  ft  %  Jacob Dover   The Jeweler   Nelson, B. C.

When those  gentlemen had time to think matters  over, he thought they would conclude  it was best to fall into line with the  convention.  When they felt prepared to fall into  line and accept what was done in convention he would welcome them gladly.  Personal jealousies must be eschewed  where there was a common opponent  to fight against, in the Conservative  party of the province.  . There was perhaps one advantage in  his selection for the leadership, in that  he occupied a seat in'the local house;",,  and also had at his back four gentlemen who were prepared to help him in  every possible way, and take advantage  of the situation there and work it in  every possible way to the advantage of  the Liberal party.  _ He was not in a position to give details, but could say that he thought he  saw his way clear to bring things round  in such a way that they would not get  the worst of it at any rate.

Owing to the illness of judge Forin's eldest daughter, he has been compelled to cancel the arrangement made to attend the  sitting of the court at Greenwood today in  place of judge Leamy, who is ill and unable to discharge his official duties.  Owing to a slight railroad accident at  Revelstoke Mr. Justice Martin wired to the  deputy registrar yesterday that he would  be unable to reach the city on time to open  the sitting of the supreme court this morning, and it has therefore been adjourned  until tomorrow morning.

The police are In receipt of a communi-  -cation-from=the=father-of-a-young-man-of-=  the name of Sebastian Short, who left  London, England, in March, 1900. The last  that was heard of him was on October 10th  of last year, when he was residing with  a man of the name of Spring Rice, Panse,  Assinaboia. He is then reported to have  loft for the west, having purchased a ticket  for Vancouver or Victoria.  The conversazione and dance at tho  Phair hotel in the interest of the publio library, was a decided success. About sixty  couples were present. During the llrst part  of tho evening Mesdames Davys, Bruce  White and Hannington and George Kydd  rendered vocal and instrumental selections.  Tt Is expected that a. substantial sum will  be at the disposal of Ihe library committee  for the continuation of the work.  A very plcasnnt socinl was held In (lie  parlors of the Congregational church last  evening, when a short program wns rendered by members of the choir and others.  Mrs. Murray sang ln her best style "The  Brook," by reo.ue.st, which was well received. Miss Manhart sang "Last Night,"  and Miss Manson rendered a nice song entitled "O! Promise me," which were well  received. A short address was given by the  Rev. W. Munroe.  A communication was recently received  In the city from P. J. Russell, who Is now  residing in Seattle, reporting the arrest and  conviction of a man of the name of Sullivan, who has been found guilty of passing  forged checks in a very similar way, and  for about the same amounts, as was done  In this city on several occasions during the  last two years. Mr. Russell, who was "bit"  by one of the fraternity, Is of tho opinion  that Sullivan was the man who operated in  Nelson.  The Spokane Review publishes a sensational story from "a man who knows" to  the effect that Wluttaker Wright has  again secured control of the Le Roi mine.  This story, improbable as it appears, may  be true, but if the man who knows all  about the Le Roi affairs is no better posted  concerning them than he is respecting the  movements of the late J. Roderick Robertson, his story is not worthy of serious consideration. He rounds out his Le Roi story  with the statement that at the time of his  death Mr. Robertson was on his way to  London in connection with tho Le Roi reorganization.
