One affidavit,  from Uclulet, alleges that on January  26th some of the Grant's crew entered  an Indian hut on the reservation, when  only an invalid, who did not understand what they wanted, was present,  and took without payment a prized  dancing head gear. Other affidavits allege that two firemen sold two bottles  of whiskey to Robert and Earnest, Uclulet Indians, on January 26th.  COST OF RIVAL SCHEMES  island, found wreckage which appeared  to have come from a warship, more  probably from the Egeria than the Condor The wreckage consisted particularly of a studding sail boom, which is  used very little on the coast. The Egeria,  while in dry dock, received rush orders  to go out after the Co'ador and was to  cruise along the west coast of Vancouver island. Her continued absence, may  be explained by her having proceeded,  a long distance to sea.  VANCOUVER, February 7.���[Special  to The Tribune.]���The Liberal convention, at its session this morning, decided in favor of drawing party lines in  provincial politics. .This afternoon the  provincial executive, which was turned  down last evening, was declared defunct,  ; a new executive was appointed, and a  new constitution adopted. Martin's  support of Maxwell last evening is considered surprising, for it was currently  rumored today that Martin went so far  as to write to friends several days ago,  saying that it would be a.great mistake  to appoint Maxwell.  The motion favoring party lines was  proposed this morning by alderman Me-  yueen, and passed unanimously. Among  favoring speakers were W.  W. B. Mclnnes,   Richard   Hail,   Joseph   Martin,  Stables, of Cassiar, and Oliver, of Delta.  This   afternoon    alderman   McQueen  moved a resolution the effect of which  was that as the organization known as  . the provincial executive committee was  now defunct, the' constitution was also  defunct, and both had better be buried  in the same grave.   ;This was carried.  ,.   Last night G. ft. Maxwell, M. P. for..  Burrard, was elected president, and T.  " S. Baxter, secretary, and this afternoon  the following officers were added:    William Sloan, Nanaimo, treasurer;  Stuart  Henderson, Yale-Cariboo, flrst vice president;   Richard   Hall,   Victoria,   second  vice president; J. C. Brown, New Westminster, third vice president; S. S. Taylor, Yale-Cariboo, fourth vice president.  These with the following compose. the  executive committee of seventeen.

Docksteader, Sandon.  In addition to the Victoria delegates,  the delegates from Rossland, Greenwood, East Kootenay and one Kamloops delegate refused to attend the convention today and have left for their  homes  E. V. Bodwell, Victoria, today said:  "We left the meeting last evening purely  as a protest against.what we considered  ���was unfair treatment to the members  of the executive and to the editors of  Liberal newspapers. The action taken  by this new convention is not binding  on any one, and we will take no notice  of it whatever. That is all there is to  say.' No;"there is no intention.of holding another convention in oppossitioh to  the present one. We will treat it with  the contempt it deserves."  VANCOUVER, February 7.���The following is a summary of the planks of  ^tHe"platf6rm=adopted^this^evening-=by-  the Liberal convention:    (1) Immediate  redistribution of seats In the province  according   to   population;    (2)    Public  ownership of public services and utilities; (3) All aid to railways in cash, not  land; (4) Immediate construction of the  Coast-Kootenay  railway,   Cariboo  railway,  extension of the Island railway,  construction of the line from Alberni  across Vancouver island, railway in the  northern part of the province from the  Coast to the eastern boundary, railway  from Vernon to Midway, by west fork  Kettle river; (5) Enactment and enforcement of an accurate system of log scaling;   (6) Legislation to be enacted enabling land under dyking system to be  available for cultivation as soon as possible;   (7) That   the   government   shall  keep in touch with the mining industry,  preventing combines as far as possible,  and if necessary build smelters, and that  mining laws be not radically changed  without proper notice;   (8) That necessary steps be taken to discourage Oriental immigration and employment; (9)  That earnest effort be made to prevent  strikes and lockout, and approving compulsory arbitration; (10) That fiscal system shall be revised, taxation to bear  upon   privilege   rather   than   industry;  (11)   Prevention   of   the   alienation   of  . public domain except to, actual settlers  and for  bona  fide   business  purposes;  . (12) Construction of roads and develop  Admiral Walker's Canal Views  WASHINGTON, February 7.���Admiral  John G. Walker, chairman of the isthmian canal commission, testified before  the senate committee on tnter-oceaa  canals today. He went over much of  the ground covered by the reports of  that commission, and in reply to numerous questions explained the reasons  for the recent recommendation for the  acceptance of the offer of the Panama  Canal Company. In replying to1 these  inquiries, admiral Walker spoke at  some length upon the engineering features of the two canals.  Senator  Harris  questioned  especially  in reference   to   the   difficulty    of   excavating for the Bohia dam, devoloping  the fact that it would be necessary to  sink the proposed piers   to   a. greater  depth than had ever been done for such  a purpose.   The foundation of the piers  are 125 feet below sea level.    Admiral  Walker also was questioned concerning  the possibility of utilizing the Charges  river as a part of the canal.    He admitted that it is a torrential stream, but  expressed the opinion that it could be  safely confined.   With reference to the  estimate that ten years would be. necessary to build the Panama canal, while  eight years would suffice for the construction of the canal by the Nicaragua  route, he said that the difference against  the Panama route was due largely to the  extent of the great Culebra cut, and the  Bohia dam.   He thought that in ordinary weather   steam   vessels   would   be  able to make  their   way   through   the  Panama canal without being towed, but  the  towage might be  necessary  when  the winds are high.    He expressed the  opinion' that the Brito  harbor,  at the  Pacific   end   of   the   Nicaragua  route,  would possess  an  advantage  over the  Panama harbor, in that vessels would  be immediately able to avail themselves  in the former of the trade winds, while  in Panama bay th'ey would.not secure  this advantage until towed'out to sea!  However, he thought that good harbors  could be cheaply secured at the western  terminals of both routes.  Exchange Courtesies at St. Thomas  ST. THOMAS, Danish West Indies,  February 7.���The French flagship Tage  arrived here today, and the commander  of the German imperial yacht Hohenzollern, admiral count Von Baudissin,  and the French admiral, exchanged  visits.

The German  admiral entertained a party on board  the Hohenzollern today, but the general  public is not allowed on board the imperial yacht. The latter will leave here  Saturday morning for Bermuda. The  weather has been fine and members of  the crew of "the Hohenzollern have frequently been allowed on shore.

Their little schooner was anchored for the night, and one of the  fishermen, named Todd, had no soG'aer  come on deck next morning than the  boat was thrown violently around, and  Todd was knocked down into the hold.

Egeria, which sailed nearly a  fortnight ago in search of the missing  Condor. Yesterday the steamer Queen  City, on the west coast of Vancouver  Death of Adam Worth  CHICAGO,-February 6.���Adam Worth,  alias Henry j. Raymond, known as the  "Napoleon of Crime,".is dead in London,  and with the announcement of his death  today all the facts regarding the discovery of the celebrated Gainsboro picture  were made public in Chicago. When the  famous picture was restored to .its  owner in Chicago last April there were  many surmises as to the medium of its  return. William A. Pinkerton, who  made the formal announcement of the  recovery of the painting, refused to confirm or deny 'any of the stories. Now1  that Worth is dead, Mr. Pinkerton can  speak. Worth gave him written permission to reveal the Gainsboro secret after  he had died.  Wrapped in .oilcloth, the canvas was  handed over to & Moreland Agnew one  morning last April in Chicago by Worth,  who 25 years before had cut the painting from its frame in the Agnew galleries in: London.,  The returning of <. the painting took;  place- in Mr.- Pinker.ton's private office.'  The owner of the picture, hurried back  to London for fear the United States-  authorities would demand customs duty  on the work which had been secreted in  this country for 15"years.  It was while in London that Worth*  conceived the.idea of carrying off the  Gainsboro picture. His first plan was  to rob the Royal academy of its art  treasures. Then he changed his mind  and directed his attentions to the Gainsboro painting. Assisted by his partner,  he climbed into the Agnew galleries one  night, cut the painting from its canvas  and. carried it away.  Worth owned a steam yacht and' the  canvas was taken aboard and concealed  '. there until he sold the vessel tck lord  Lonsdale. Then he took the picture to  Paris and finally brought It to America,  where it was concealed for 15 years. In  the meantime Worth was arrested in  Brussels and forced to serve seven years.  Mr. Pinkerton had known Worth for  30 years. Two years ago Mr. Pinkerton  received a telegram telling him that an  -important letter was at his._home. The  letter was Worth, who asked an interview. This was granted and Worth said  he was going to die and wanted to "turn  up" the Gainsboro picture in order that  his two children, who had been educated  in a convent, might enjoy the proceeds.  Through a hitch the picture was not  recovered at that time. Worth returned  to London and early last spring he fulfilled his bargain.  Two Traitors Hanged  WASHINGTON, February 7. ��� Two  soldiers were hanged in the Philippines  today, in execution of sentences imposed by the military commission by  which they were tried and convicted o��  deserting to the enemy. Their names  were Edmund A. Dubose. and Lewis  Russell, and both were attached to company "E" of the 9th cavalry, a negro  regiment. While their company was  operating against.the insurgents in the  ���province of Albaya, in August last, the  two men deserted, and were afterwards  discovered serving in the ranks of the  enemy. They were tried before a military commission and sentenced .to be  hanged today. The case was laid before president Roosevelt, in time for  him to prevent the execution if he desired, but he declined to interfere.

The company obtained possession of tho  elevator owned by the Great Northern  railroad of Canada stationed at Quebec and  it already has good facilities at Duluth.  The elevator capacity has therefore been  arranged for and there will be no difficulty  whatever ln that respect. Presently when  the time shall permit, it is the purpose to  erect new elevators.  OUTLINING HIS CAMPAIGN  Qeneral Herrera's Note  PANAMA, February 7.���A note from  general Herrera has been addressed to  the American, French, British and German consuls here.    In it general Herrera claimed among other things that  the government  of  senor   Marrouquint  the president of Colombia, was not lawful, and that, therefore, the rebels, although deploring the bloody results of  war, would fight to the end for the ultimate success of the Liberal principles.  General Herrera proposed that the consuls address   their   respective   governments to declare the line of the Panama-  Colombia railroad to be a neutral zone,  within which the government should not  build entrenchments or the Liberals attack, and that only a police force be left  to   guard   the   line.     General   Herrera  said he proposed, if possible, to compel  the government to attack the Liberal  forces, and   that   the   Liberals   had   a  strong fleet  and  army,  provided :with  cannon.   General Herrera also declared  in his note that.the Liberals considered  the capture of Panama and Colon to be  absolutely   necessary  for  the  development of their military plans, that they  would act to  obtain such  results,  and  that in due time they would notify consuls of such proposed action, allowing  24 hours for foreigners to take refuge  at a place of safety, to be agreed that  the places so selected   would   not  -be  fired upon. <  loss on the building is J50C0, machinery  $100,000, and material $150,000. The engine  house was destroyed-, but the new $75,000  boiler plant was saved. The Are is still raging in the lumber yards, which contain  5,000,000 feet of lumber.

Big Order for Ships  CLEVELAND, February 7.���According to  A. P. Wolvin, the head of the Great Lakes  and St. Lawrence River Transportation  Company, that company is negotiating with  Jubilant Japs  YOKOHAMA, January 21.���Japan is noting with some satisfaction the rise in London in the value of her new loan bonds,  which a day or two ago were quoted at  ��78Vi, a rise of three and three-quarter  pounds. Her-war loan has jumped ��li4.  The rise is attributed, in a measure, to the  world tour;of the marquis Ito.  . United: States citizens here are much interested in a rumor from. New York of the  possible establishment in Yokohama of' an  -American .ibank. Itis; conceded **hero--that  the Americans suffer severely from - the  want of such an institution. All exchange  effected by American citizens is caluclated  to inure to the advantage of European  bankers, and considering the. amortization  of the American share of the Chinese indemnity and expenses of fleets and transports in these 'waters, together with the  transaction of the ordinary business it is  thought that an American bank, under American laws, could not fall to be a sound  enterprise.  Sun Yua Sen, the well known Chinese reformer and revolutionist, who is now in  Yokohama, recently apprised his followers  that he would henceforth abandon violent  methods of reform in China, would disband  his secret society, of which he is the head,  and distribute its members over America  and Europe, so that they might become  educated and inaugurate a campaign of  education. Sun, whose kidnaping at the  Chinese embassy, in London a few years  ago caused a sensation, intends to return  to China when the Chinese court reopens  and is now paving the way.  The representative of the emperor of Japan, at the forthcoming coronation of king  Edward, will be prince Komatsa, who has  twice been to Europe and is especially well  known to the royal family.

The report states that the committee have  carefully considered the many antl-anar-  chlst measures and has sought to present  wise, conservative, constitutional and effective measures. The purposes of the bill  are summed up as follows: First���To prevent resistance to protect the president and  vice-president of the United States, and  those by law ln line of succession to that  high oflice; second���To protect the ministers and ambassadors of foreign governments, accredited to and within the United  States. Third���To prevent the open and deliberate upproval ot certain crimes and also  certain unlawful teachings, which, If permitted, are calculated and intended to  breed lawlessness and crime and culminate  In tho destruction of the government.  Fourth���To prevent the coming to or naturalization in this country of those who  teach or entertain such pernicious doctrines. Fifth���To prevent conspiracies iu  the United States to murder the rulers of  other civilized nations. Sixth���To provide  adequate and uniform punishment for these  offenses wherever committed, and all the  offenses against the government and In-,  tended to impair or overthrow the government of the United Slates. The report  makes an elaborate presentation of the  powers of congress to deal with the subject, the need of shutting out the lawless  who seek the United States shores, and  the caro the committee has exercised, not  to trench upon legitimate freedom of  speech and of tho press.

It is the mandamus proceeding directed against the  archbishop of Canterbury and the vicar  general for hearing and considering cer--  tain doctrinal objections to the confirmation of canon Gore as bishop. ��  Three protracted arguments were made  Wednesday for and against the right of intervention between the election and confirmation of a bishop of the English church,  the lord chief justice vainly endeavoring to  induce, the barristers��� to go on. The law-'  yers' tables were loaded with musty folio  volumes and of statutes in the time of  Henry VIII. and queen Elizabeth from the:  British museum and the Lambeth library,;  and the learned solicitors were constantly  unclasping great brass hinges and pouring  over worm eaten pages.  The object of this extensive invasion of',  the ecclesiastical - archives is to demon-;  strate whether any limitation can be placed*  upon the royal prerogative in the selection;  of a bishop when.the prime minister has,'  according to custom, presented two names'  and the monarch has been pleased to favor  the first rather than the second.

Steamship -'Company's' liner LIndra-'  velli, "which sailed from Portland on-Wednesday at noon" is back in the harbor with  her hatches battened down and her decks  piping hot, the result of a smouldering fire  which started yesterday.. From present indications the snip-has suffered little damage, but the loss on the cargo, which Is  valued -at $400,000, will probably be quite  heavy. When the fire was discovered steam  was turned Into the hold, both forward and  aft, and everything was battened down  tight. A chemical engine has been placed  en board tho Indraveill and it Is. expected  the Are will be under control shortly. The  between decks of number one hatch, where  the fire is smouldering contains 725 bales  of cotton and 4800 sacks of flour. Underneath this In the same hold ere 26,0000'  sacks of Hour and 400 bales of cotton.  ...

Senator Hoar then spoke briefly upon  the sedition laws enacted by the Philippine commission, saying that he was  sorry that the commission had had its  action justified by reference to the only  harsh and cruel provisions that were to  be found in the statutes of the United  Statesi Under this cruel provision in  the Philippines, a mother having knowledge of treason of her son must inform  the authorities upon him; the son mustt.'  inform upon the mother; the brother*^*;  upon the brother; the daughter upon -"  the father, and so on.' He said the laws  of the United States: were applied to.citizens of this country���citizens of either  nativity or adoption.  In the case* of the application of these  acts in the Philippines, he said,- they  were being put into execution by alien  authority responsible only to an alien  government or command.  Senator Patterson interrupted senator ,  Hoar to say that one of the members  of. the Philippine commission ought to  be relieved from any odium attaching,to  .the:,e*aactment;6f the Philippine sedl-  'tion-lawsi-^Governor Taft, he said had  informed, the Philippine committee that  he was ill when these acts were enacted  by the commission and. that had he  been present there probably would have  been some modifications of them.

"Open Door" in Manchuria  WASHINGTON.   Feoruary   7.���While  details of  the  negotiations   cannot  be  developed here at present without confirmation, it is said that the court in  Pekin is acting with Japan and Britain  in resisting any action by Russia and  China in the   shape  of  a  Manchurian  treaty that would threaten the interests *  of the United States in that important  section of the east. The state department  has made clear to Russia its purpose to  retain whatever trade advantages it has  i in Manchuria and its determined attitude in that matter probably has prevented the summary* closing of the Manchurian ports to any but Russian trade.  PThe   question   now   involved;   namely  those relating to mining concession and  right  to  construct   railroads   in   Man-  -churia, are remarked as only secondary  in importance to the  question of the  -'open,door",and the United States dip^  loma'tic representatives consequently are  acting under conservative, but firm instructions oh these points.

But eminent as are the two distinguished bolt-j  _ers_it.cannoUbe=said-thatTthey-have-anyi  greater claims for recognition from the  Liberals of the province than have Jos-'  eph   Martin,   Willian   Wallace   Brucei  Mclnnes or James Cunningham Brow.;  It is true that of the senator it. may be!  said that he created the present Liberal i  party in the province, out of nothing,)  but the time has gone by for the rec--t  ognition by the party of anything in I  the shape of a perpetual mechanics lien  in the   senator's   favor.    That  senator  Templeman has done much for the party;  cannot be denied, nor can it be denied  that from the  party   he   has   received;  much.    Unbiased persons incline to the!  belief that the account between the party  and the senator is about balanced, and!  they are beginning to resent the senator's penchant   for   doing   the   entire)  party's  thinking and shaping its  destiny.  at the Mansion house by the lord mayor,  sir Joseph C.Dimsdale. The party included sir Thomas Lipton, Archibold  W. Macohechie, M. P., sheriff Bell and;  colonel Hunsiker, chairman of the Nicked  corporation.  Mr. Schwab'had-half and hour's audience with- king Edward at Marlborough/  house this, afternoon. Mr. Schwab was-  accompanied, by sir Thomas Lipton, who  introduced , him to his majesty. The;  king greeted his visitor in the most!.  cordial: manner and chatted freely withi  him, mainly on the' friendship between)  the United States and Great Britain..  His majesty especially- referred to the  iconnection^between=-the��=industries -oft  the countries and the friendship existing:  between them.  As was expected the Liberals oi the!  province, in convention, have decided  upon the introduction of federal party  lines. Upon one point, however, the  press reports of tho convention are indefinite. They do not state when the  change is to be introduced. It may be  that this matter of detail has been left  with the new executive. It. is worth  noting that five members of.the present  legislature supported in speeches, before  the convention, the introduction -. of fed-  ereral party lines. They were William  Wallace Bruce Mclnnes, of Nanaimo,  Richard Hall, of Victoria; Joseph Martin,  of Vancouver, Stables, of Cassiar, and  Oliver, of Delta. The vote upon the  question was unanimous.  Powers; Arranging Peace  LONDON, February 7.���The answering of questions in the house of commons today by government officials dis-  i closed the fact that the government had!  ��� no reason to believe. that the note of!  'the government of the Netherlands oni  peace in South Africa was formulated im  consultation   with   another    European!  j power. The war secretary, Mr. Broderick, said the number of horses purchased  during the war totalled  44C.008  of  ; which 77,101 came from the United i  States and 11,364 from Canada. In addition about 89,705 horses had been captured in South Africa.  Set Out in the Recent Act  The trade of stationary engineering is  one which calls for the best men to put  forth their best abilities. The new regulations governing the trade have been Issued.  From them it will be seen that some men  will lose their jobs. Many good engineers  in a practical sense who have continued  their vocation for years with" satisfaction  both to the employers and men have little  or no knowledge of arithmetic, euclid and  algebra. It is claimed that to ask these men  who are now up in years, to pass an examination on these subjects or have their  positions taken away is a hardship, and  they will have a good deal of public sympathy. It is pointed out that elsewhere it is  usual to set aside money to provide instruction in the branches required and if  the government desires to deal fairly with  the engineers and also the general public,  such an arrangement should be made here  at once, declares the Nanaimo Herald,  which also says:  "The instruction necessary is, we believe,  to 'some extent the same as is required in  the examination for mining certificates and  the absolute necessity of having men fully  competent in both mining and engineering  for the better protection of life carries with  it the responsibility on the part of the government to place the acquirement of the  proficiency within the reach of everyone  who may wish to qualify. A week or so ago  we suggested that the coal miners of British Columbia unite in an endeavor to secure  aid from the government to establish  schools of instruction in different sections  of the province. In view of the new regulations regarding engineers we believe the  necessity for this becomes greater, and  there is no doubt if the miners and engineers would join forces in petitioning the  government for an appropriation toward  this end it would be promptly and cheerfully granted."

It is   claimed   that   Christian!  science should be made illegal in Germany.

True Blue Mine Shipping  The True Blue ore is being hauled Into  town ready for shipment by Allen McKinnon. There are about 4G tons already down  the hill and it is expected that there will  be about as much more brought down before the snow goes off, for which 1000 new  sacks were sent up to the mine this week.

Stevenson, foreman of the mine, and one of  the largest stockholders, was in town on  Monday on business and says the vein on  which they are now working will run between IS and 20 per cent copper with some  gold and silver. Some of the assays go as  high as 24 per cent copper. It is expected  that enough ore can be shipped this winter to pay for development during the  coming season that will put.the mine in a1  position to ship steadily.

Saving's Bank Branch  CURRENT RATE OF INTEREST PAID,  WILL SMELT TEXADA ORE  Pittsburg Company Interested  The appended account of the prospects of iron making at Irondale, Washington, is interesting because those at  the head of the enterprise are the principals of the syndicate which recently  purchased the Marble Bay Coper mine  and other Texada island mining interests belonging to J. J. Palmer.  The flrst of the year will witness the  production of the flrst pig-iron made in  the state of Washington in more than  a decade, at Irondale, five miles south  of Port" Townsend, on Port !rbwnse'nd  Bay.  Twenty years ago there was at this  place a smelting plant that was built  and run for a short time by the Puget  Sound Iron Company, Texada ore ^being used. The smelter was finally "closed  down.and the furnaces were allowed to  go to ruin.. .������''���;  Some six months ago ' a" company  known as the Pacific Steel ���Company  was formed of Pittsburg and McKees-~  port capital, with Homer, H.-Swaney. at;  the head. Six months of hard work  has placed the old plant of the Puget  Sound Iron Company at Irondale, which  was in first-class shape, when it was  abandoned, in even better condition  then ever, and it is claimed that in a  short time it will be turning out pig-  iron at the rate of fifty tons a day. For  the present, a high-class magnetic ore  from Texada island, British Columbia,  will be used.  For the first few weeks the new company will use coke from Skagit county  for fuel, and a series of experiments  with different. Puget Sound and British.  Columbia cokes'will be conducted. By  this time the elaborate charcoal burning plant which the company is now  installing will be in active operation,  and therefore charcoal alone * will be  used, and a superior quality of charcoal  v pig-iron produced.   .-".,'������:-;    *  The new- company has done its work  quietly, and. is still ready to admit that  its efforts may prove vain, and its money  wasted, but if it does succeed, the one  essential to the complete realization of  the brightest dreams of the future of  the whole Pacific coast will be accomplished.  The success of the Irondale experiment will mean a complete business revolution of the Pacific coast. Shipbuilding alone will in that case assume a  great importance. The profitable production of pig-iron at Irondale, while it  will benefit Port Townsend primarily, it  will prove of even greater benefit to Seattle and other manufacturing cities of  Puget Sound. It will not only remove  an incubus from the shipbuilders, but  it will emancipate the cannerymen of.  the entire coast, from the gulf of California to Behring sea, for one of the  flrst industries to follow successful production of pig-iron will be a plant for  the manufacture of tinplates, upon the  priceof which greatly depend the prqiits  of the canning industry.  It was last March that Mr. Swaney  determined to begin operations at Iron-  dale. Since that time a large force, of  men, brought out from McKeesport,  have been engaged in placing the old  smelter in repair. ''The furnaces have  been relined and alterations made which  the engineers <claim place it in bettei  condition than it was when new. All  the machinery for crushing and handling ore was overhauled and placed in  perfect order. The steam plant was altered to secure more economical operation.  This refitting has been done under the  direction of Henry Hall, of the Well-  man-Seaver ��� Engineering Company of  Cleveland, Ohio. The alteration in the  steel plant have been made by the company itself. Under the new company a  new laboratory has been built and will  be maintained with the most improved  appliance.  The Irondale plant will employ directly  and indirectly 300 . men. One hundred  will be empoyed about the smelter, the,  same number or more, in the mines.  Approximately 100 or more will be on-  gaged in cutting wood for the charcoal  plant.  '���'������' In brief the new plant may be described asjfollows: The stack is sixty  . feet in height, twelve feet in the bosh,  six feet on the crucible, and of about  fifty'tons capacity a day. Power to  drive the hoisting and ore-crushing  rnachinery will be.furnished by a battery of four, steam boilers, and large  blowing-engines will furnish the blast  for the furnaces.  The ores from Texada island, one hundred and thirty miles distant, are being used for the present, and until the  value of the company's own mines can  be demonstrated. Here they will be  loaded on scows, transported to the  plant, and dumped into the bunkers by  a powerful steam derrick. From the  bunkers it is hauled in small cars, and  arranged in huge heaps, each containing some 2000 tons.  In order to render the smelting process easy, -a low-grade hematite, instead  of black oxide, like the Texada ore, will  be used in small Quantities. This will  be used as a "mix"." It is found near  Hamilton, in Skagit county.  Arourtd the plant are scattered many  rusty pigs of iron which were left there  when the fiu*nace was abandoned. Many  pf these pigs contain iron of a surpris-  THE CANADIAN  BANK OF COMMERCE  WITH WHICH IS AMALGAMATED  THE  BANK OP  BRITISH COLUMBIA.  HEAD OFFICE: TORONTO.

In the office of the  new company are several samples of  the old Irondale product, side by, side  with samples of the best grades of iron  eastern furnaces. ��fhe Puget Sound pig  is super! or to the eastern, as a general  rule.  Limestone for' fluxing purposes will  be brought, from the quarries in Roche  harbor. The coke, which will first be  used at Irondale, will be brought from  Cokedale, being transported in the same  manner as the ore.  Experiments conducted by the Pacific  Steel Company up to the present time  have been rather flattering to the cokes  of this state. All of it is rated as fairly  good, and one particular coke is stated  to be one of particularly fine character  for iron making. There are two faults  with most of the coke so far tested.  Some of them contain a little more phosphorus than they should have for use  in steel- making, and most of them have  more ash than the eastern coke. It is  considered probable that more careful  washing :.wpuld greatly reduct the percentage of ash in the Washington cokes.  After the experiments with cokes of  -.the state ��� have been made the company  "will' use charcoal exclusively. About  $6000 has-been expended in improvements "and* additions to the old cliar-  ���cpal plant,*-! The original cost of this  "plant "alone was a little over ? 40,000.  There the twenty kilns thirty feet high  and thirty feet in "diameter at the base  and each will hold seventy-five cords of  wood, in the old days the kilns were  filled by hand, and this process the new  company is' following, but will not long  continue to do so. The kilns will burn  ISO cords of wood a day. If .men were  employed to cut wood to supply them,  the cost would be enormous. The company is erecting machinery which will-  saw, split and convey the wood to the  kilns automatically. At the present'time  a large quantity of charcoal is being  burned under supervision of a veteran  charcoal burner brought to Irondale from  Missouri, who has entire charge of the-  charcoal, burning plant. The bye-products of-the distillation,of the wood-are  at present wasted. In time.however, it-  is hoped to save them.  General manager Swaney of the steel  company says that it has been demonstrated in Germany and also in Michigan that wood can be distilled fa.'nd'i C'{  profit made by the sale of the b*yo-pro-'  ducts alone. That is to say, the charcoal could be thrown away and the burners still make money.  Senator Foster of Tacoma is one of  the stockholders of the Pacific Steeel  Company, and a members of the board  of directors. Mr. Swaney speaks in high  terms of the part taken by him in paving the way for the commencement of  work at Irondale, both by the investment of money, and in many other ways.  ��To Henry .Hewitt, of Tacoma, who is interested with senator Foster in the company,'much credit is also due.  BAD YEAR FOR CHAMPIONS  Several Were Defeated  =^The-=year^l901^may-not^be-=said--to-have=  been a good one for fighters. Not only were  there more or less of a ban on the lighting'  game throughout the year, but it also  brought grief to an unusually largo number of champions. Danny Dougherty, who  held the bantam weight premiership, bestowed on him by Terry McGovern, whose  sparring partner he .was, came to grief in  an encounter with Harry Forbes ol" Chicago. Dougherty was deposed after a session that lasted but two rljunds.  Terry McGovern was another lighter that  had his crown lifted. For nearly two years  McGovern held the featherweight honors,  lie seemed invincible, nnd in the majority  ol' his lights he mado his opponents look  cheap. But just as he had been winning in  jig timo, so he lost. Young Corbett wallop-  ped him soundly in Hartford, Connecticut,  on New Year's Day. The victory of Young  Corbett probably was tho biggest surprise  of the year. There were but few sporting  men that saw where Young Corbett even  had a chance, but the Denver boy had  something up his sleeve, and Terry was  given a clean knockout In tho second round.  There was no joy over Terry's Thanksgiving turkey.  Earlier in the year Matty Matthews, of  New York, a clever fellow with the mitts,  bore the title of the welterweight, champion. Fighters went' after the title but  Matthews was always.able to retain his  laurels, until one day, a. Kansas scrapper  by the name of "Rube" Ferns came along,  and at the end .of ten rounds Matthews was  on his back and the referee tolled the ten  seconds. The name of "Rube" was given  to Ferns because he was thought to be a  farmer pug, with little or no chance of doing anything worthy.  Kerns' tenure of the title was briefer  than Matthews'. He got through with his  next two fights without yielding, and then  tackled the ebony hued Joe Wolcott. When  "Wolcott is right and his heart in place, he  is a dangerous proposition for anybody or  anything to go against. Wolcott was in this  condition the night he fought Ferns, and  five rounds sufficed to put to the Kansan  on the shelf;   International Chess Results  MONTE CARLO, February 6.���At the  conclusion of today's play the following  additional results were recorded: Plllsbury  and Telchman drew, as did Mason and Napier; Tschigorin lost to Poplel, while Mar-  cozv and .Tanowski also drew.

KETCHAM'S PET AMBITION  Wants a Two Minute Trotter  Ever since Crescues, the monarch of  the trotting track, returned from his triumphant tour and went into winter  quarters at George H. Ketcham's stock  farm, at Toledo, rumors have been rife  concerning the plans for the champion's  future. As there is rid * horse on the  turf, in the stall or in the paddock today  in which the public is as much interested as it is in Crescues, it is natural that  rumors concerning him are numerous.  . First it is said that Mr. Ketcham; will  retire the trotting king from the track,  satisfied with the honors already  achieved.. Next Crescues will be only  driven in exhibitions and showed at  horse shows. It. was even said that the  great stallion had received an offer from  a thetrical manager to go on the vaudeville stage.  To all the rumors Mr. Ketcham has  replied nothing. He has his own plans  for his favorite's future and' is perfectly  willing to allow the public to make its.  own guesses concerning them. . - ;  No one who knows Ketcham intimately, and knows his ambitions and feelings toward the horse that has become  his one hobby, can go far astray con-<  cerning the future of Crescues.  Ketcham's ambition is to own the.  two-minute trotter. Crescues's cam-  pionship records, numerous as they are,  are not-sufficient to suit his owner. The  one mark he wishes his horse to make  is the two-minute mark.  "There will be a two-minute trotter  before another light harness season  closes," said Mr. Ketcham,- when he was  in Philadelphia less -man two weeks,  ago. He did not add, "That trotter will  be Crescues," but he thought it, and he  :meant it.. 1 v '.' " ...,.>'  The career of the great trotter is brilliant from the start. He:was first campaigned in' 1897,'- but came east in .fast  company.- That season iie started nine  times, and was never behind the money,  winning six firsts and three seconds.  His record that season was 2.11 1-4.  The next year Crescues started only five  times and got a record of 2.09 2-4..  Being elibible for the 2.10 class, he  started in company such, as Elloree,  Tommy Britton, Pilatus, Belle J. Battle-  ton, Grayton, Mdnteroy, Carcalla and  Oakland Baron. His first start was at  Cleveland on July 28, finishing third to  Elloree and fTommy Britton.  At Readville on August 24th he won  the 2.10 class trot in the last three heats  of a five heat race. Time, 2.10 3-4bpttao  of a five heat race.. Time, 2.10 1-2,  York on September 4th he won the free-  for-all ita straight heats. Time, 2.10 1-4  2.07 1-4, beating Charley Herr and Mon-  teroy, and in the second heat distanced  Askey, Benton M., Dare Devil, Bingen  and Oakland Baron. He also,won the  free-forrall-at.

January 14th, 1902.  .VICTOR  ROCK  ELM  In 1900 he started eleven times and  won nine races every heat below 2.10.  Crescues' greatest attempt came last  season when he lowered the world's  race record twice in ene week, then  smashed the record against time. In  that season he reduced the world's trotting record to 2.02 1-4, the world's race  record to 2.03 1-4, the half miilel profile'  record to 2.09 1-3, and broke a number  of other records of less importance.  No one who has even seen Crescues  will be likely to forget him, for that  plebeian dun shading off to a light  blonde at his points make such a weird  picture when he is. in action that the  impression remains for a long time. His  mane and tail fringe out to a ashy pale  color that it odd and attractive at the  same time, and that is about all'that can  be said about him. .  His head has not an ounce of flesh on  it. It is hard and finely drawn. The  ears are set well together: afrad bespeak  the character of the horse.- His nostrils and mouth, both wide and well-  formed, furnish, ample room for. the air  he. needs, and there is not a suggestion  of coarseness in the whole head at any  point.  King he has been termed, and king he  is. Never,' say wiseacres, have such  qualities as Crescues possesses been  found in any one animal, and again it  is repeated that he is a puzzle to "those  who know him. It is thought he is easy  to drive, but ho other than Mr. Ketcham can say, for no one else but Mur-  nen has ever driven him, and they only  smile and say little. Yet to the observer  he seems to be a remarkably easy animal to drive and seems to cause no trouble. His name is at- once peculiar and  appropriate. It has puzzled many people  and doubtless seems strange at first.  Mr. Ketcham selected it was care and  forethought. It is an extract from ancient Roman history. Crescues of history was a famous charioteer and an  intimate friend of Caesar's, a wonderful  horseman and a noted rider. In fact, the  Roman Crescues was the king of his  class, just as his namesake is today.

Club was held last evening in Fraternity hall for*the purpose of discussing the  arrangements for. the. regatta which will,  be held in this city during the summer. A.  H. Buchanan .was called to, the chair., The  first matter .was. the discussion of plans for  the erection of a boat house. Some were in.  favor of erecting a two story one, but  others who thought that sufficient funds  could not-be procured for the purpose, were  in favor of a'one story building. A long  discussion followed, when it was .moved  by Mr. Selous and seconded by Mr. Miller,  that the matter-be left to the committee to  arrange as they found best, as it was impos-;  sible for such' a.'large meeting to- come to  any definite' conclusion on the matter." The  committee, appointed to: take charge of the  work is Messrs:!.Wragge, Wetmore, Sevan,  Johnston and Mason, ln this connection it  was agreed: that the new boat house should  be erected oh'the site of the old one.  The question-of petitioning the city council for a grant towards, the. support of the  regatta was introduced. by one . of the ���  speakers, and after some discussion it was  agreed that > a committee composed " of  Messrs. J. Elliot, a. C. Hodge, H. E. Croasdaile, and J. J. Malone, should be a committee to wait upon the city council to  make an undivided grant towards the .boat  club for this year, Instead of the Dominion Day celebrations. Incidentally in this  connection the idea of substituting the regatta for the Dominion Day celebration  was received with considerable favor. The  date of the regatta was fixed for July 25th  and 26th, as. it could not be held before the  10th nor after the 31st. "  Before the meeting was adjourned a resolution of condolence was passed, extending  the sympathies of the Nelson Boat Club to  Mrs. Robertson and family in the untimely death of Mr. J. Roderick Robertson.  It is expected that-H. W. Kent, of Vancouver, .the secretary of the association,  will arrive In the city this evening and the  committee of management will confer with  him in.regard to future arrangements.  "Father Pat's" Faith  Dear Sir: In your issue today appears a  semi-official statement from the Hotel Dieu  hospital, Montreal, to the effect that the  ^lateiRe^*.^H.^Irwin,=w.ho,i.as���your=_readerss  all know, was a priest in the Church of  England, "a short-time before his death embraced the Roman Catholic faith." Knowing the extraordinary credence which is always given to such statements by the public, I hope that in the absence of more definite information you will allow me to deny this rumor. I am In possession of a letter written-to me by Mr. Irwin, on the very  eve of his departure for England as late  as December 12th, in which he says "if.  ever vou have any hard work away up  north and you want me, please let me  know," a statement which is as true to  his character as it Is false to the above  version. I may. also add .that at his own  special request, the Rev. Canon Wood-of  St. Johns, Montreal, visited him before his  death in the hospital. Yours, &c.  EDWYN S.
