 I  BSABLISHED  SATURDAY  MORNUSTG,  FEBRUARY  22  1902  DAILY EDITION  ROSEBERY AGAIN  TIMES HINTS AT ANOTHER  COALITION  BRITAINS NAVAL ESTIMATES TO  BE  ABOUT  THE  SAME  AS  THOSE OF LAST YEAR  burned upward very rapidly. Before 2  o'clock the entire building was in ruins.  It was feared at that hour that the car  barns of the Metropolitan street railway to the south would also be ignited.  A large quantity of powder, stored in  the armory,_has exploded. Ambulance  calls were sent to the hospitals, but it is  not known whether any one was injured.  Hundreds of persons occupying a row  of flat buildings in Thirty-first street  were ousted by the police, and cared for  in neighboring houses.  FORTY-SIX  CARS  OF ORE  LONDON, February 21.���Lord Rosebery's announcement of his final separation from the sir Henry Campbell  Bannerman section of the Liberal party,  announced by the former in a letter to  the London Times this morning, forms  a fruitful topic for afternoon editorials  and for discussion in all quarters of  Great Britain. ,One of the most noticeable phases is the curious effect the letter produced in the wording of the  Times editorial on the subjest. Its  friendliness to the ex-premier might  easily be explained on the ground of  'unionist delight of a definite split in  the opposition ranks. Its declaration  that "what the country wants is not a  brand new set of principles, but a new  set of men capable of replacing the  present set without upsetting the policy of the empire," preceeds the significant demand that lord Rosebery's  party must prove that they can be trusted to Jnfuse business energy and capacity into the prosecution of an imperial policy. Concluding the Times says:  "If the fruition of efforts ln that direction may seem to be remote we can  only say it may come sooner than anybody expects." This cryptic utterance  has started rumors of a new coalition  between the unionists and imperial Lib-'  orals, under the leadership of the duke  of Devonshire and lord Rosebery, besides the possible defection of the  Times in its support of the present government.  The secretary of the admiralty, H. C.  Arnold Poster, introduced the naval estimates for 1902-3 in the house of commons today. They showed a total of  ���631.255,000 as compared with ��30.875,-  000 last year. During the course of an  accompany ine; statement, Arnold Foster remarked that no thinking men  could have anticipated any reduction  from the estimates" of last year, in view  of the fact that the army was engaged  in a 'difficult conflict, seven thousand  miles away. In regard to the naval reserve, the secretary of the admiralty  said that the government had discovered  that there were legal objections to engagement of men in Newfoundland. The  movement -would therefore be temporarily arrested, but legislation would be  introudced legalizing the engagement of  men in every part of the empire. He  also said that the progress of naval construction during the past year had been  unparalleled. The present estimates, he  said, gave the government ��15.000,000  for new ships and it was intended to  snend the money. No fewer than 49  shins would be under construction in  addition to twenty-seven others that  would be laid down. Besides this a larae  programme of reconstruction would be  undertaken, thereby adding greatly to  the fighting calibre of the fleet. Guns  of more formidable calibre would be  "mounted-on-many-vessels-and-six-inch-  guns of the latest and most improved  type would replace the 4.7 guns now in  use.  BERLIN, February 21.���Lord Lansdowne, the British secretary of state for  foreign affairs, has informed baron Von  Richterofen, secretary of the German  ministry for foreign affairs, that the  British government has taken note of  the publication in Germany of the dispatch of Dr. "Von Hollenden, the German  ambassador to the United States, concerning the meeting of ambassadors  held in Washington, April 14th, 1898,  without following the usual proceedure  of obtaining the consent of the other  governments interested. Lord Lansdowne and the British government desire Germany to know that it has mis-  iinderstood the action of lord Pauncefote, the British ambassador to the  "United States, in the note of April 14th,  1898. Lord Pauncefote's part in that  was simply that of senior member of the  diplomatic corps, and nothing that he  did was prompted by unfriendliness to  the United States. Baron Von Richterofen has not yet replied to lord Lans-  downe's dispatch of which the foregoing  is the substance. The indications are  that Germany in its reply thereto will  point out that the British foreign offlce  was the first to give information to the  press, coincident with the first speech  of lord Cranborne, the British under  secretary for foreign affairs.  Killed hy Dynamite  WINNIPEG, February 21.���A dispatch  from Port Arthur states that Joseph  Rouleau, an employee of the Fisher falls  camp, of the Pigeon River Boom Company, was killed by a premature explosion of dynamite.

Clever Counterfeiters  NEW YORK, February 21.���A special  to the Herald from Loudon says: Some  hundreds or forged bank ' of- England  notes, for ��5, have been put in circulation during the last fortnight. They  are almost perfect counterfeits and have  been accepted without hesitation by  bank cashiers, and at business establishments. Many of the notes were passed  off on bookmakers at the last Hurst  park race meeting. It is admitted that  the counterfeits, of which about 300  iiave already reached the bank of England, are the most perfect of their kind  ever attempted. They are beautifully  printed in lustrious black ink on paper  whose crispness of texture and water  marks resemble almost exactly the genuine article.  Scotland Yary is busily engaged in  task of trying to track down the counterfeiters, but the work is so immeasurably  superior to that of all the known forgers that new hands are suspected  which greatly increases the difficulties  of running them down.  Canal Treaty Concluded  WASHINGTON, February 21.���The  final ratifications of the Hay-Pauncefote  treaty, giving England's assent to the  construction of a canal across Central  America by the United States, were exchanged at the state department this  afternoon. There was very little ceremony at the exchange. Copies of the  treaty had been prepared, precisely similar, excepting the fact that the signatures were inverted, and these were formally exchanged between lord Pauncefote and secretary Hay, a protocol being  signed formally attesting to that fact  which will form part of the record.  Buffalo Woman Missing  BUFFALO, February 21.���Miss Alice  M. Colie, 22 years old, disappeared from  her home on Wednesday afternoon, and  the police have heen asked to locate  her.

The  search of tho suspected houses continues,  resulting In the arrest of a large "number  of anarchists and revolutionists of all  kinds, who are considered to be the chief  movers In the troubles. The character of  Barcelonia makes it a resort for representatives of all the revolutionary elements  in Europe and the ranks of malcontent  workmen have been swelled by French and  other foreign political agitators. The republicans are busy among the troops urging them not to raise their arms against  their own class in defense of plutocrats.  The working people of Madrid favor the  strikers. Martial law has been' proclaimed  at Xarragonia. The strike is spreading In  the Lobregat and Cardona valleys. There  is a general cessation of work at Garve,  and much excitement prevails at Bateau.  Forces of gendarmes have ben dispatched  to those places.

Tonight tho operator on the  Audrew's Meteorie Career  DETROIT, February 21.���Warrants were  were issued today for F. C. Andrews, and  another officer of the City Savings Bank,  charging falsification of the report of the  bank's condition in February, 1901. This Is  the third warrant which has been issued  for Andrews'.  DETROIT, February 21.���Frank C. An-  diews, now under arrest on the charge of  wrecking the City Savings Bank; less than  a week ago was police commissioner of Detroit, vice-president of the. bank, promoter'  of many big schemes, a power In financial  circles here and a highly respected citizen.  By his energy, keen judgment, and seeming integrity he amassed a great fortune.'  He had nothing to start with when he  came to Detroit" eleven years ago. His entire cash capital at that time was $1.25.  How he got his start Is not known, but  before he was here a year he was making  money fast on the stock market.- He bought  and sold rapidly. His motto was quick  turns and small profits. He was lucky at  every turn. If he bought the stock was certain to rise. If he sold it was as sure to go  down. He laughed at those who preached  thrift to him.  "Human life is too short for the slow  process of thrift," he would say. "I concede that one gets a small start by keeping part of his salary, but we are not talking about business employees in this con-  ' hectibn, but commercial success in a broad  sense.  "Even if I am wrong, I go through with  it for the experience.  "Money making requires personal fitness.  After nature give thanks to your mother.  I look on It as I do on other talents. The  money faculty is an Instinct, the same as  pur other instincts. I do not see how a man  can possibly make a fortune unless he  speculates. Don't you believe that by saving his money a man doubles his capital.  He does it in strikes and big bunches.  : "All my good fortune, so far as it has  come, has resulted in taking chances. I  have preferred to take chances on a large  piece of real estate rather than a bushel  of beans. So I have made more money than  a corner grocer, and yet, with all due respect, I could not successfully, manage a  grocery store. Every man in his own place  is my rule. I find success Is an indomitable  faith in your own proposition."  And until a week ago It seemed that Andrews must be right, for his success was  dazzling. It was known that a few months  -agj-he-was-worth'more'than'a-milliondol-^  lars and his Investments ���'were such that,  with a little careful management, they  would have developed twice that amount.  He could have retired from active business  and had more than enough for all his  wants, for he was not a man of particularly extravagant tastes at any timo.  But Andrews was not satisfied. He had  speculated successfully for years, and he  believed he could keep It up. The copper  market temp.ted him. He bought on margins, and then came the drop in Amalgamated. He used up what money he could  get in renewing his margins, and then be-  .gan to draw on the resources of the City  Savings Bank.  Tho electric line fever, which wrecked the  Everett-Moore syndicate of Cleveland,  Ohio, also found in him a ready and willing victim. He started a line between Holland and Grand Rapids, Michigan. The  construction of the road seemed easy from  an engineering standpoint, and Andrews  decided to "take a chance." That chance  has tapped his pocketbook, or rather the  savings accounts of the depositors of his  bank for hundreds of thousands of dollars.  The road is practically Hushed; so is its  treasurer, Mr. Andrews.  Andrews literally cleaned out the bank  day after day of its cash, iff: acquired a  strange influence over, the bank's cashier,  H. R. Andrews, who by the way, Is in no  way related to Frank C. Andrews. Whenever the vice-president needed money he  would draw a check for the amount and  tell the cashier to certify It���and the cashier never refused.  Andrews would present this certified  check to tho person with whom he was doing business, and ask him to hold it for  that day as the bank was not in funds to  meet it. He might have the check held out  In this way for two or. three days. Then he  would go to the bank, got what money had  been deposited, lake It, leave a slip of  paper in tho drawi������ ���*���: :i.-; place, and personally pay the certified c-neck and tear it  ���Hi).  He did this again and again, and when  tho crash came he owed his bank $002,000.  In addition to this he overdrew his account  $900,000. The bank failed for about $1,G00,0(K).  Tho day It failed the Detroit clearing  house association issued this statement:  "The disaster which today has befallen  the City Savings Bank is the result of irregularities conllncd entirely to that Institution, and caused by the rash speculations  of  the vice-president,  who controlled tho  More of Codlin and Short  LONDON, February 21.���The weekly  reviews_make the impending arrival of  prince Henry of Prussia at New York  the occasion of another "chapter in the  Spanish-American war controversy.  The Spectator reviews at .length the.'  whole story of the diplomatic exchanges, with a view of controverting  what it terms "the distortion of the actual facts by. the German press." The  paper disclaims any intention of attempting to mar the reception to be tendered prince Henry, but declares that  both Englishmen and Americans see  through Germany's game/and refuse to  be misled by the "inspired" attempts  to undermine their mutual friendship  and understanding. "A fact which will  be written down by the historians,"  says the Spectator, "is as well recognized  today as it will ever be. That is,- that  England used her influence, and the  Americans know she used it, on the side  of the United States as against those  lwho wished to take the side of Spain.  A test of the attitude toward-America,  during the war, displayed by England  and Germany respectively, is found in  the respective attitudes at the English"  and German squadrons toward admiral  Dewey in Manila bay. The Germans  nearly fired on the Americans. If they  had done so, the English would have  acted on the American side."  The Outlook treats the matter lightly.  It says that emperor William, now as in  China, is using prince Henry as a bait  for the German hook. Neither prince  Henry \nor his, astute brother the emperor, will ever succeed in weakening  the substantial grounds upon which  Anglo-American co-operation now rests.  In the same connection, the Outlook expresses great satisfaction at secretary  Hay's note to Russia, and commends it  as a strong document, which gains additional force from its despisal of old  fashioned diplomacy.-.  The Saturday Review, on the other  hand, pursues its customary anti-American course, and, roundly abuses the  government for being drawn into this  fresh "humiliating position," and denominates the whole controversy as an  "internation slanging match."  Insane Servant's Crime  NEW YORK, February 21.���A peculiar  tragedy occurred today In the residence of  William J. Symons, at Caryl, a suburb of  Yonkers. It resulted in the serious wounding of Georgian, the five year old daughter  of Mr. and Mrs. Symons, and the probable  fatal wounding of Amelia Fisher, - a servant. The cause of the shooting, which was  done by the servant, Is supposed to have  been an Insane fondness for the child,  whom she feared would be separated from  her through dismissal. Mrs. Symons went  shopping, leaving the little girl in charge  of the servant. When she returned there  was no response to her ring, and she had  to affect an entrance by breaking a window. She instantly detected a strong odor  of gas, and heard groans on the top floor,  upon which were located the servant's  room and the children's playroom.^Hasten-.

A gas bracket  had been wrenched from the wall and tho  room and hall was filled with gas. Mrs.  Symons rushed to the telephone and notified the police. Two small bullet wounds  were found In the child. Both were superficial, and she soon recovered from the effects of the gas. Three bullets had penetrated the servant's body, and she was removed to a hospital, where it was believed  she would not recover.

In  discussing it the governor was very  guarded. He said: "As far as the necessity; of water is concerned, there is no  question whatever but that there is insufficient water for the use of the mines  there now, and water would be the  greatest boon that could be given to the  miners of the Klondike. Whether every  safeguard has been thrown around tlie  order I cannot say, but I hope the interests of the district have been protected.  I have great hopesi that the order has  been misinterpreted. In any event the  only ground that could be given away  by thegovernment, is that which reverts  to the" crown, for the government has  no right to touch that ground which  has been already located, and the dispatches from Dawson telling of the  miners preparing to leave the district *-  in consequence of the order .must be  without foundation."  The Liberal club of Dawson at a  meeting last Saturday considered the  questions arising out of the concession  in all their bearings, and wired resolutions thereupon to Ottawa, and also to  commissioner Ross, now oh his way to  the Dpminion capital. The club made  it a point to place on records its confidence in commissioner Ross, and in his  fixed desire and determination to guard  the interests of the people of Canada  and that special portion called the  Klondike���and this confidence is unmistakably shared by the Dawson  public.  By the resolutions referred to, commissioner Ross is urged to use his in-  flence to secure the cancelation of the  obnoxious' features of the much-discu��-  sed'concession, it being the opinoih of  the meeting that such features:had been  obtained only hy gross misrepresentation of the facts and of condition in tho  Yukon.  It is believed, for example, that it  was never represented to the minister  who proposed the order, that it would  work an interference with, and abrogation of legitimate vested rights; that it  would necessarily be retroactive in operation and uncertain in effect; nor  could it ever have been made apparent  to the powers at Ottawa that the only  inmeasurably valuable rights and privileges acquired Would be a monopoly  water supply at virtually prohibitive  nrices.  Canadians Criticise Chamberlain  NEW YORK, February 21.���The strictures of the Canadian press on the reply of the colonial secretary, Joseph  Chamberlain, to the Welsh delegation  of Patagonian _ agriculturalists, who  =w.ish ^to^em igrate^to^JOanada, jir e^considr^  ered well founded by prominent Canadians here, says the Tribune's London  correspondent. They do not reproach  him for any feeling of unfriendliness  to the Dominion, but they charge him  with lack of tact in discriminating  sharply between Canada and South Africa. They assert that when tbe Dominion government offered to do so much  for the unfortunate Welsh colonists  stranded at Patagonia, Mr. Chamberlain ought to have avoiaed the implication that aid of the Imperial government might have been successfully invoked for sending them to Boer colonies, but not to Canada.  Germans Antartic Expedition  VICTORIA, February 21.���The steamer Miowera, which arrived here this afternoon, brought the report of the  steamer Langlin, which had arrived at  Sydney after taking provisions to Kar-  gueliin island for the German expedition  which is exploring the antarctic ocean  in the steamer Causs. Besides the provisions, the Langlin landed 880 dogs,  dog tenders, and two German scientists,  wh'o are to join the party on the Causs,  and continue the explorations toward  the south pole. There were some apprehensions as to whether the Causs had  been at the island before the Langlin  arrived, but there were no signs oC  such a visit. The buildings erected by  the British expedition in 1874 were  found intact, but badly in need of repair. . The island had an immense population of rabbits, the descendants of a  few left there by the British expedition.

Hi  I!  Something must have gone wrong in  the    legislature    on    Thursday,   when  "Dick"    McBride's    opposition    forces  made their first assault upon the Dunsmuir  government.     Before   the  house  met there were all kinds of assurances  flying around to the effect that a majority  of the members  were pledged  to  vote against the government, but when  it came to a show down they were not  there.   Nor is it likely that the opposition will develop any further strength  as the session progresses.   In Thursday's  division the vote was 18 to 16, and there  was but one member absent.    This of  course    excepts    the    speaker,    whose  health will not permit him to attend.  Honorable C. E. Pooley is presiding in  his stead so that the government's following, by reason of~tfie speakler'Tlll-"  ness and the vacancy in Victoria, is two  short of what it was last session.   The  absent member on Thursday was Oliver.  He is an acknowledged follower of Joseph Martin, and may therefore be counted as a government supporter, at least  until  after the redistribution measure  is safely disposed of.    It is therefore  reasonable to expect that in subsequent  divisions the government can count upon  a vote of nineteen, out of a possible vote  upon the floor of the house of thirty-  five.   This is somewhat closer than any  of the important divisions last session.  Since  then,   however,  the  government  has lost Westminster city, one of the  Victoria's is vacant and the illness of  the speaker has taken Mr. Pooley out  of the division lists.   Aside from these  changes there are the deflections of McBride, Green, Garden, Fulton, and Taylor, who voted with the government last  session during the stormy times of debates  upon  the   government's  railway  bills.    Against this gain of five votes  there is an offset of three, as Gilmour,  Oliver and Hall, who voted against the  government's railway bills last session,  may be counted as government supporters, so that the net gain of the opposition's   voting   strength,   including   the  capture of Westminster city, is three.  :H  It is reported from Fernie that the  Crow's Nest Coal Company has decided  to open company stores at the mines  in competition with the Fernie merchants. This, it is claimed, is a gross  breach of an understanding which was  arrived at at the time Fernie was started. This townsite was owned by_the  coal company. The merchants who purchased lots from the company, put improvements upon them, and engaged in  business, claim that they did so upon the  strength of assurances given them by  the coal company that the system of  company stores would not be introduced.    There  is   money   in  company  stores, however, and the Crow's Nest  Coal Company is after it.   To the protest, that the introduction of company  stores means a breach of the company's  agreement with Fernie's merchants, the  reply is made that the company will repay the merchants the first cost of their  realty investments, and it own appraisements'   upon  their   improvements   and  stocks.    If this means disaster to the  merchants of Fernie that is their misfortune, and no concern of the coal company.     This   is   the   same   company,  concerning whose solicitude for the mining and smelting industries of southern  Kootenay, so much is heard.   It is the  same company that is seeking to secure  a perpetual monopoly of the supply of  coking coal in the Crow's Nest, and it  is this ambition of the company which  causes it to fill so large a" place in the  public eye.   For this reason, the action  of the coal company, towards the merchants of Fernie, becomes, the concern  of the people of southern Kootenay, in  that  it  evidences  the treatment  they  might likewise expect if they were made  dependent^ upon it.   1/ the Crow's Nest  Coal Company would break an agreement- of its own making,* in order to  increase its profits, what reason is there  for supposing that it would' sacrifice any  portion of its earnings to such patriotic  considerations   as   the   development of  British   Columbia's   mineral . resources  and the building up of its smelting in-  kustry.    Yet this is what a portion of  ihe press  of the province would like  the people to believe.    At.the present  .time the smelters of British Columbia  are required to pay $4 per ton at tlie  ovens   for. their   coke,   which   in   the  Boundary means $6.50 delivered.    The  'cost of transport is therefore something  over fifty per cent of the total charge.  In the case of coke shipped to Canadian  smelters the Crow's Nest Coal Company  "gets none of this, but if the coke were  "diverted to American smelting points  the allied railway interests of the coal  company would absorb the whole of it.  Is   it    likely   that   a   company   which  ^durd^break^an^-agreement^with-pur-  chasers of its real estate, for the relatively small profits of a company store,  would forego the advantages of hauling  the output of its own coal and coke over  its own railroad lines, in order that persons arid enterprises in whom it has no  interest, and with whom it has no agreement, should enjoy the largest possible  measure  of  prosperity.    This  is  what  the organs of   the   Crow's   Nest   Coal  Company would have the people believe,  and just upon the eve of the coal company's absorption by that philanthropic  concern known as the Northern Securities Company.  Word was received in Nelson yesterday to the effect that the work of reconstructing the Athabasca Mining  Company is proceeding satisfactorily in  Toronto and that the prospect is good  for the resumption of work upon the  property this summer. The new company will control the Venus as well as  the Athabasca, thus carrying out in  some respects the deal which fell,  through last summer. The head office  of the company will be in Toronto.

GREATEST RUIN OF ROME  Blames the Pilot  HALIFAX, February 21.���-An enquiry  was opened this morning into the  stranding of the Allen liner Grecian off  Herring cove. Captain Harrison, of the  stranded steamer, gave evidence to  show that the pilot was mistaken in  the course of the ship, although at. the  time of the accident" he put every confidence in the pilot, although he (the  captain) knew that the ship was in a  dilferent course.  Denv the Report  CONSTANTINOPLE, February 21.���  The authorities here deny that Rev.  Tsilka, husband of Mme. Tsilka, the  companion of Miss Ellen M. Stone, has  been arrested for complicity in the kidnapping of the latter. They say that  according to last reports Mr. Tsilka is  iu Sofia, Bulgaria.  The Coliseum and Its History  It costs the government of Italy about.  ?20,000 a year to keep up the Coliseum,  the most impressive and imposing ruin  in the world and the most conspicuous  type of Roman architecture and civilization.   Fifty or sixty masons are kept, at  work all the while repairing breaks and  cracks for fear o'f endangering the lives  of the tourists who constantly visit the  place.   They are working under the direction of an architect and engineer employed by the minister of public instruction.    People with artistic taste  complain about this "restoration," but it is  absolutely  necessary  in  order  to   save  the ruin.   At the same time it was not  necessary for the care takers after the  fall of the Papacy to tear out the shrubs  and plants which  decorated this  most  stateiy, solemn, majestic pile of stone.  Before 1870 the gaunt and bare interior, the glorious walls and the titanic  arches  were  softened  and  embellished  with garlands of green and in places  large trees grew from the cracks in the  stones.    The   crypts   and   vaults   were  cushioned with mosses, with the same  effect that   one   sees -in    the   Scottish  abbeys and the castle of Kenilworth.   It  was then the most beautiful as well as  the most imposing structure in existence,  and so great was the variety of vegeata-  tion and foliage which sprang from the  soil that had been saturated with the  blood of the   martyrs   that   a   botanist  named Deakin published a catalogue of  the flora of the Coliseum, identifying 420  species.   In tearing away this foliage the  workmen  did an  immense amount of  damage more than the decay of a century, would cause, because the roots of  the trees and shrubs had wormed their  way into the cracks and crevices and  had clinched themselves stoutly resisting the attempts at their eviction.  :  There is a popular notion that St Peter's cathedral would be placed inside of  the Coliseum, but than; is not quite true.  St. Peter's is in the form of a cross.  The Coliseum is oval 1790 feet in circumference, 630 feet at the major axis  and 525 feet at the minor axis.   St. Pet-  jer's is 636 feet long by 450 feet wide,  so that if it were shaped a little differently it might be squeezed within the  Coliseum walls.   The dome of St. Peter's  is 448 feet high; the walls of the Coliseum are 157 feet, ana they were probably thirty or forty' feet higher once.  :   There has been a- good deal of discussion as to the seating capacity of the  Coliseum, but nobody can tell exactly  what is was.   The estimates run all the  way from 40,0.00 to 87,000.    There were  eighty entrances and eighty stairways,  and four tiers of boxes and seats for  the different ranks of society, the no-  J)Uity_ surrounding the imperial box on  both" ~srdesT"anid^the=s61dieTs=andiisailors^  having free   entrance   into   what   was  called   the   peanut   gallery,  which   was  about 140 feet from the ground.    Free  admission was given to the sailors because they  handled  the  awnings  that  were  stretched  over  the seats  of thj  nobility when the sun was too bright  for comfort.    It is said the amphitheatre could be emptied of spectators in  ten minutes, the corridors and stairways  all being wide.  The Coliseum, like that other wonder  of the world, the pyramids of Egypt,  was built by Jewish labor, and completed by 12,000 captives whom Titus  brought from Jerusalem after the eon-  quest. The architect was a Jew, Gaud-  entius, who was converted to Christianity and afterwards suffered martyrdom  in the arena.  The material for the Coliseum came  chiefly from Nero's famous golden  house, which covered an area of nearly  a square mile, including the courts, and  a portion of it occupied the place where  the Coliseum stands. Much of the material in Nero's house came from the  temples and palaces erected by his predecessors, and hence it was perfectly  natural for the pope and the princes of  Rome to use the material in the Coliseum to build their churches and palaces. The records show that four of the  most famous of the Roman palaces, the  Farncse, Barberni, Venezia and Can-  cclleria, were built entirely from materials taken from its walls, and each of  them was erected by a cardinal who afterwards became pope.  We know that, without counting the  material taken from Nero's house, the  Coliseum cost the emperor Vespasian  $3,500,000, and it was only about half  done when he died. The decorations had  not yet begun. They were done under  the direction of the emperor Titus, and  must have cost as much more, because  there wero acres of-richly sculptured  marble, acres of mosaics and acres of  gilded bronze. The ironwork of the  Coliseum was all pulled out during the  middle ages, to be made over into arms,  because metal was scarce in those days.  Contemporary writers have given us  a vivid account of the ceremonies attending the dedication of the Coliseum  by the emperor Titus, which afforded  an opportunity for a display of magnifi-  cience and extravagance which remains  unrivaled at the present day.

Another act on the programme was a  battle betwen a squadron <of drafts and  a flock of cranes, aud 5000 animals, including beasts of every description,  from wolves to elephants and rhinosceri  were introduced into the arena to fight  .with slaves. The show was closed by  flooding the arena with water and making a lake, upon which was given a representation of a sea fight betwen the  Corinthians and the Corcyreans, as related by Thucydides. At the close of the  performance the emperor . was found  weeping, for during tne excitement an  accident occurred which the .astrologers  interpreted as an omen of death. He  exclaimed that he did not deserve to die,  but expired a few days later on September ISth, 81, being a little more than 39  years old.  The emperor Hadrian once celebrated  his birthday by turning the arena into  a forest and introducing a thousand  wild beasts, including more than a  hundred lions and lionesses and tigers.  Gladiators were sent in to kill them, and  the spectacle must have been very exciting.  Emperor Commodus descended into  the arena himself .dressed in a lion's  skin, with his hair sprinkled with gold'  dust. He called himself Hercules, and  fought both gladiators and wild beasts.  On one occasion it is written that he  killed 100 lions with his bow and arrows,  the animals being thrown into the arena  by trap doors from below, similar, I  suppose, to the trap used for throwing  pigeons, arid as they, struck the ground  bewildered the emperor shot them one  after another.  The first martyrdom in the Coliseum  was that of St. Ignacius, the disciple of  John the evangelist, and the first bishop  of Antioch. Lions were set loose upon  him and devoured him, except the largest bones, which the Christians collected  during the niaht and have since preserved in St. Clement's church, dedicat-  ed'tb^him'memory-herenn-Rome.���=���  KOOTENAY   COFFEE CO.  ************************  Coffee Roasters  Deal8rs ln Tea and Coffee  a'-saaaaa'-a^Hi'-jatfe-fe-t-fe-Ettet ***  We aro offering at lowest prices the best  grades o Coylon, India, China and Japan  Teas.

THE PRINCE OF CRACKSMEN  Career of Adam Worth  The death of Adam AVorth, the "Napoleon of Crooks," on February. 6'Ui, at  his apartments, near Regent park, London, brought to a finish one of the most  remarkable careers ever known in the  annals of crime.  Adam Worth, alias Henry Raymond,  alias Edward Gray, is listed as No. 215  in inspector Bryne's book, "The Professional Criminals in America." He. is  best known today as the man who stole  the Gainsborough portrait.  He was born in New York about sixty  years ago, of honest German parents.  He was sent to the public schools, but  his father and mother soon discovered  that Adam would neither study nor  work. '  When a mere youngster .he learned  to pick pockets, and before he wus nineteen he was known to the police as the  cleverest in his line in New York city.  "Troy" Dennis, a notorious sneak thief  of that time, took the boy into partnership, and the two worked together as  housebreakers until one night Dermis  fell from a second-story window aud  was  killed.  When the civil war began Worth became known as a bounty'juniper. He  frequently boasted that he had served  in the union army, and showed several  scars which he claimed to have received  in battle. At the close of the war Worth  made his headquarters in New York and  soon became a "'general among privates"  in criminal circles. He was soon a graduate of every branch of thievery known  among crooks. He was a "porch-  climber," a bank burglar,-a forger, a  "layer-down" of counterfeit money, a  receiver of stolen goods and the advisory counsel to all the great criminals in  ��� both America and Europe.  His first great exploit was in 1S69,  when in broad daylight, with Charles  W. Bullard and Ike Marsh, he robbed  the Ocean bank of $150,000. This was  j regarded as a record breaking achievement among bank sneaks.       - ���  Not long afterwards Worth planned  a successful raid on the Third National  hank of Baltimore, which established  his prestige as the cleverest bank robber in the United States. He and his  gang fled to Canada and lived in great  style for a time. On returning to New  York Worth and Bullard were at once  arrested. They engaged ex-recorder  Smith to defend them, paid him a retainer of $1000, and as soon as they  were realeased picked Smith's pocket  and recovered their ��1000.  After robbing a New York Central express train of $100,000 the gang located  in Boston and planned one of the most  famous bank robberies ever known.  Worth rented a fine store next door to  the Boylston bank, in the old Boylston  market building. Bullard leased the  premises in the name of Judson, but  Worth furnished all the money for the  scheme. They opened up a store for  ^the^sale_^j3it^exs^ul._piit^ in a large  stock of California wlnes���mefely*-a3=a:-  blind to enable them to wait until the  bank vaults were full of money.  The first act of the cracksmen was to'  arrange a false partition. This was  made moveable, so as to cover them in  their operations. For six weeks they dug  away at the brick wall that stood between them and the bank vault. By  the end of that timo they began drilling  on the heavy boiler-plate sides of the  vault. They chose a Saturday night  to finish the job, boring holes through  the plate in a circle. This was a slow  and tedious performance. The only pressure the thieves could exert upon the  boring implement was that proceeding  from their weight and muscles. Twice  they gave up in despair, all but Worth,  who insisted on carrying the burglary to  a finish.  That night there was a meeting of  Spiritualists in the hall above, and  among those attending it were two well-  known Boston detectives, who are still  living in that city. The robbers had  stuffed the partition with rags, so that  the Spiritualists were not aware of what  was being done in the room beneath.  It was daylight before the hole was  cut through. Worth crawled into the  vault and passed out money and securities to the value of $550,000. A small  box of diamonds worth about $100,000  he concealed in his ecai, keeping its ex-  istr-nce a secret from the others.  They packed their plunder in valises,  took different routes out of town and  made a division of the spoils. The robbery was not discovered until the following Monday morning, and by thai  time there was absolutely no clue for  the police to work on. For cool, systematic planning and nerve this robbery  is still reckoned one of the most notable ever committed in any country.  Worth escaped with his share of thr  plunder and has seldom set foot in thr-  United States since. All American  crooks who visited London for "business purposes" made Worth's house the.*,*  headquarters nnd followed his advice  in planning their raids. Before many  years he became the most successful  "fence" in London, defying the utmost  skill of the "English detectives to faster  any definite charge upon him.  His next adventure was to purchase  a mngnificient steam yacht, and together  "With several of his pals he made a tour  THE CANADIAN  BANK OF COMMERCE  - WITH WHICH 18 AMALGAMATED  THE BANK  OF BRITISH COLUMBIA.

While at Constantinople the gang planned a daring  burglary, but Worth was caught by the  police and imprisoned for a time in a  Turkish jail. He finally bribed a .Greek  to liberate him, and since that time he  took no active part in the robberies he  planned.  Returning to London Worth married  the daughter of a wealthy merchant  and settled down to a more respectable  life. His wife was a woman of education and: refinement, very handisome  and accomplished. It was a love match  pure and simple. Worth's marriage  worked a great change in him. He began to read the best books and to study  art and literature. Among writers Ruskin was his special favorite.  ��� His knowledge of precious stones .was  so complete that the owner of the biggest diamond business in Paris hired  him as a purchasing agent. He bought  stones_ct.it and uncut and no doubt disposed of a great deal'of burglars' booty  in the regular way of .business..  -  At one time he was.believed to be pos-  sesed of over a million dollars, through  legitimate and illegal means.  Worth's attempt to be respectable was  not made so much on his own account  as on account of his wife and family.  He had one son, now being educated at  an aristrocratic English school, and  three daughters, who have been taught  in a well-known convent in Paris. The  children are kept in total- ignorance of  their father's record, and were given to  understand that he was a wholesale  jeweller and art conuoiseur. Two of his  children are now in the United States.  Of all Worth's crimes the most famous and the most daring was his theft  of the Gainsborough portrait from the  ���Vgnews in 1S7B. This robbery, carried  out under cover of a London fog, was  not undertaken to make money, but to  induce Mr. Agnew to go bail for one of.  Worth's burglar friends, who had been  arrested in Paris.  The hue and cry over the loss of the.  picture prevented Worth from coming  forward, and the beautiful portrait,,  whicli had brought $50,000 at auction  a few days before/was nailed into the  false bottom of a trunk.  Last April, through the mediation of  Pat Sheedy and Robert Pinkerton, the  picture was restored to the Agnew family on payment of $25,000, and today,  hangs in the Agnew picure gallery in  London. It is said that many years ago  when Sheedy had lost all his money in  a gambling house,1 he was befriended,  by Adam Worth, who lent him $500.  Sheedy had not forgotten the favor and  reciprocated by conducting negotiations  with the Agnews.  In appearance Worth had more res-  -mbiaiice to a respectable merchant than  to a bank-breaker and burglar. He was  Invariably well dressed, with side whiskers and a* heavy mustache.  For years he lived a double life harboring and instructing the most notor-  :011s crooks in London, yet at the same  time posing as a patron'of art and lit-  ���rature, deceiving even his own chil-  lren. Though arrested again and again  for his various burglaries, the records  fnil to show, that,he._ey_er_w.pre_the_.garb  .f a convict. For forty-five years he  made war upon society and defied its  laws, a criminal record which has perhaps never been equalled.  j  HISTORY  OF  TELECRAPHY  Franklin's Kite Experiments  it may ho said that a. certain kind ot clec-  IricUy tends to travel like waves made by  lropping a st'ono in a pond���in all direction.-?. Rut it travels farthest and with least  resistance in those directions where it finds  Uie best conductors for it. Some substances  ire hotter conductors than others. Glass  mil rubber aro non-conductors, so-culled,  .'is you may see by looking at the rubber  ooverlns of wires on the street car system,  *r the glass insulators on a telegraph pole.  'Me'.uls, such as iron, steel and copper, are  first class conductors, and that is why  wire is used for telegraph and telephone  tnd electric light purposes. Water and the  earth 'ire conductors of electricity and so  's the atmosphere. AVhen Benjamin Franklin, with his famous experiment with the  ".tite, proved that lightning Is nothing but  ���leclricity, he also proved that the atmos-  ���hero is a conductor, for u bolt of lightning  nay travel many miles before striking the  '���urili. Mere Kpace, finally, is a conductor  if electricity as you can prove by passing  t current through a vacuni.  As soon as one learns that electrical  .vaves can move in space without the conventional wire conductors it is evident that  he question of telegraphy with or without  .vires must depend largely upon the trans-  TiittinK and receiving apparatus. Wires  litlierto have been used because, with the  apparatus available for sending and receiving electrical currents, they have afforded tlie best results; indeed, for considerable distances they afforded the only  ���esults that could lie depended upon. Kven  with wire as n conductor far more delicate  receiving instruments have to be used on  ���in Atlantic cable than on a circuit between  Springfield and Buffalo. Now, Marconi is  by no means the first one to experiment  with wireless telegraphy. Many men have  been working at the problem for years.  And essentially their problem liar* been to  perfect apparatus at one end which would  generate electric waves strong enough to  travel long distances with mere space as  the conductor, and apparatus at the other  IMPERIAL BANK _&*  OIF    O-A-nsr-AJD-A.

The transmitting and receiving apparatus  so far developed is complicated and one  needs some technical knowledge to understand it. You will read much about Hertzian waves in this connection. Hertzian  waves are waves of electricity. Hertz was  a German professor, who died in 1S94. He  was the first man to prove by experiment  that whenever any circuit electro-magnetic changes are brought about, as when an  induction coil is ln action, the disturbances  are transmitted in all directions, bringing  about similar changes in neighboring conductors. His great work was to show that  these disturbances are transmitted by the  means of vibrations of the luminiferous  ether (which is assumed by physicists to  fill all space), and also to show the character and measure the velocity of those  waves. T,he wireless telegrapher therefore  generates Hertzian waves of electricity into space. General Greely, head of the  United States army signal, service, in describing the transmitter used by the signal  corps in experiments, over two years ago,  reported that he used a coil in oil, "ener-  ���_i;-'ed by-a three-quarter horse power rotary transformer, furnishing .125 volts alternating potential," an arrangement making "a very powerful and-efficient source of  Hertzian radiation." Marconi used at that  day a Ruhmkorni coil. According to present  methods Hertzian waves are transmitted  by 'be generator through the wire to the  top of a high pole and that is where the  jumping off place is.  From the top of the pole the Hertzian  waves arc radiated off into space. About  one-fifth of a horse power is necessary to  send them sixty miles off to sea, and a one  thousand mile range, it is said, ought not  require much more than three and three-  quarters'horse power, provided the energy  can be utilized. To send the waves across  the Atlantic the problem of transmission is  a question of propelling force. The Hertzian  waves follow  the curvature of the earth.  Marconi improved the receiving apparatus by discovering, or investing, what is  known as the decoherer, which consists of  a ball working on an arm attached to the  armautre of an electric magnet in the circuit of the coherer or receiver. But that  aside. Enough has ben said to show that  this apparatus, both sending arid receiving  is highly technical and difficult to be understood in detail by one who is not an electrician, or who has never witnessed experiments in wireless telegraphy. Suffice it to  say that when Marconi the other day in  Newfoundland, received the wireless message from the coast of England, he flew a  kite in the air, and from the kite was a  wire connecting with his receiving instrument. The Hertzian waves had passed over  the ocean from the tail pole on the English coast, and had struck the wire on the  kite in Newfoundland. The electric vibrations were thus transmitted to Marconi's  delicately adjusted receiver, and read by  him. exactly as they had ben sent across  l.StiO miles of ocean.  Marconi's system uses the atmosphere as  a conductor. Nicola Tdsla, it is understood,  is experimenting on a system that uses the  earth as a conductor. It seems safe to predict that science will completely master  the field of wireless communication  through long distances before many years  have passed. Evidently the experimenters  _are_ pnly_l.ii_theinfancyofthe art.���Springfield Republican.  THE  JOY   OF  RETURNING  Story of Reconciliation  ' ��� "Pull in the oars Rose and let us drift  down tlie stream a bit." I obeyed willingly,  for it was a warm day and I realized after  an hour's steady rowing and the charms  of tho riverside could be bettor appreciated when the hands were idle. Leaning  .'back on my cushions I listened to the  droning of tho bees and the musical lapping  of the water against the sides of tlie boat,  watching, meanwhile, the varying expressions which flitted over my companion's  face.  "How sweet and peaceful it all is here,"  she half mused. "Just a day for conll-  dcfices. Tell me, Rose, have I over kept  a secret from you?"  "Not to my knowledge," T returned.  "Well, there is one big secret which I  have always kept locked in my heart, the  only one, I thing I ever refrained from confiding to you. I am going to tell you it now.  How long is it since I first came to live  with you?"  "Two years," I answered somewhat anxiously, "and the happiest two years of my  life. Don't say you are thinking of leaving  mo yet awhile."  ; "Did it ever strike you as a strange thing  for me to leave my home and friends and  come out and bury myself in the country  like this?"  "I thought, perhaps," I began blunderingly, "that you might have had some disappointment���that is���"  1 broke off in some confusion and my  friend looked at me through her long,  fringed eyelids.  "Vou were quite right," slie said, the  smile dying away from her mouth and a  shade passing over her face. "You thought  there was a man in the case. Well, there  was."  Her voice sank as she made this confession, and her eyes strayed far away over  the water with that far-away expression  which had become so familiar. I looked  at her silently, desperately curious, as a  woman can bo and yet did not put a question.  "Yes," she said, softly, "ho was the cause  of my going away. I loved him too well to  stay."  ^'^.^.^'2S*C*L40i0W.0wr.00.00.  ��� 0*' 0*' 0*' 00 ��� **��* \ir, ��T�� ��?������ -5T- ^��  ^***************************************************-****************^  1890-__STABI__SH__D IN MH!__80N-_902  Jacob Dover   The Jeweler   Nelson, B.

"D'dn't he eare for you?"  "Yes," she said, "that was the reason I  went.  "Was���was he married?" I asked nervously.  "yes," she said.

In six months she ran through all  his money and incurred debts which it was  .impossible to.pay, and altogether made his  life a perfect misery. Rose! Rose! There  never was a greater curse, to a man than  a bad wife."  - "That  must  have, ben  hard  for  you  to  bear,"  I murmured, sympatehetically.  "But not nearly so hard as for him."  "And do you think he loved you?"  "I am sure of it," she returned. "Do you  think my life these two years would have  been possible il' I had not known? It was  that that gave me the courage to go, away  and keep away all through these long  months."  "And now," I began anxiously, staying  the motion of the oars in the water.  She dabbled her hands in the' water before speaking.  "And now," she said, "I am going to see  him a-rain."  She saw the look of pained surprise that  came over my face, but did not heed it,  and went on talking as if to herself.  "I am going to meet him in the city tomorrow. He will be at the station when  my train comes in. I haven't seen him for  two whole years."  "Then his wife is dead," I made remark.  "No.she is not; women of that sort do  not die easily."  "But"���I remonstrated.  "There are no buts about- it," she cried  almost angrily. "We have suffered long  enough and we are going to pretend that  the other woman is dead. We are going to  forget all tho misery of the past. He is going to take me abroad and we are going to  start life over again. It is the thought of  thi** which has kept me alive these years."  "You are a very selfish girl," I said with  some emotion." Do you think happiness  will come at such a cost? Think over it all  again or you will repent it bitterly. You  have had courage enough to keep away so  long, don't spoil it all now. I am pleading  now for his sake and yours."-  She shook her head obstinately and her  eyes shnne with a light which was maddening to me. Knowing her as I did this  weakening change in her character surprised me more than I flared own. I looked  at her silently and met her glance of defiance with a sorrowful thought of what she  had been to me for the past two years.  Then  I found my. voice.  But she did not heed entreaties and sat  half smiling to herself as she played with  "tli^1stsering'rdpesr*-i^^^^'i=^-^���"-^^^-^^^^=i^  "We are willing to risk everything," she  said.

Afterwards, in chambers, his lordship  heard an application by Elliot & Lennie in  the S. S. Bailey vs. Dellie Mining Company,  for an order that the property should be  sold to satisfy judgments. The application'  was granted.  Coal Company's Harsh Treatment  The Crow's Nest Coal Company has  at last thrown off the_ mask with the  people of Fernie and announced frankly  that it will open a company store to  enter into competition with the merchants of that town. This. Jias been  done in spite of the fact that there existed a tacit understanding between the  company and the merchants from the  start that the former would not engage  in the mercantile business in that town.  As a result the business men of Fernie  built large stores, put in heavy stocks,  and proceeded with business, on the  basis of permanency. Having confidence  in the integrity and good will of v,he  coal company, there existed ho doubt  as to that corporation keeping faith  with the people. But they were deceived. After sending a delegation to Toronto to confer with the officials of the  company they discovered that the company had no less idea of carrying out  its professed intentions of keeping out  of the mercantile field, but it was bluntly  told that if the merchants of Fernie did  not like it they could get out and the  company would pay first cost of property and an equitable amount for improvements and stocks, the equity, of  course, to be dicided by the coal company. In other words, the company  proposes to adopt the Pennsylvania coal  town system, and as the trade of Fernie  depends upon the coal miners, the trade  that has heretofore belonged legitimately to the merchants will be confiscated by the company. It is no wonder that the ^merchants of_Fernfe have  Petty Thieves Sentenced  The man Lewis, who was arrested on  Thursday last on the charge of stealing a  coat from the Kootenay hotel, was brought  up before magistrate Crease yesterday.  CVnstable Heavener, who went out to  Granite Siding to make the arrest, produced the coat, which had been hidden in  the center span of the Kootenay bridge.  Lewis pleaded guilty and was sentenced to  three months' imprisonment.  James Jackman pleaded guilty to the  charge of having in his possession a coat  which had been stolen from the Kootenay  hctel and also a clock, which has not been  pruduccd but has been located. He was sentenced to three months' imprisonment.  The case of Brewster brothers was disposed of during the afternoon. A. Brewster was charged with the theft of a coat  belonging to a man of the name of A. C.  Smith, which had been taken from the  Grand Central hotel. The stolen property  was found on Archie, who was in the act  of putting on the gloves whicli were in the  pocket of the stolen coat at the time of  his arrest. He pleaded guilty to the charge  and was sentenced to three months' imprisonment. The charge against the brother, Peter Brewster, was not proceeded with,  as the former admitted the charge of having stolen the coat.  The Ottawa Deal Goes Through  The lessees and owners of the Ottawa  v/ere informed on Wednesday that tho  money was in the bank to cover the option  held on that property by Pittsburg capitalists, associated with W. D. AVrighter of  Spokane. The men at the mine came down  yesterday and the papers will likely be  signed today through Angus McLean, who  is' acting for the holders of the option.  When here a month ago Messrs. Coleman  and Wrighter secured a 30 day option,  which expires on Saturday. The price of  the bond is in the neighborhood of $45,000,  but the particulars will be made known  when the papers are signed. At the mine  things are looking uncommonly well, the  paystreak showing 18 inches of shipping  ore in the face of the drift. A contraction  in the vein occurred a couple of weeks  ago, but it has been passed and the vein  wonderfully improved.���Slocan Drill.

In blasting the Italian was injured  in the head and face, and had one of his  ribs broken. The victim was to blame, as  he remained too near the blast.  A number of tho Coast delegates to the  L. O. L. paid a visit to the smelter and the  general hospital, accompanied by W. W.  Bradley, grand secretary, and ex-mayor  Neelands, and expressed themselves as  well pleased and interested. Most of the  delegates returned to the Coast last evening, although a few of them are remaining  over until Monday.  In addition to other officers elected, and  previously mentioned, J.

The charter will remain open for  six months for those who wish to enter as  charter members.  Editor Smttheringale, of the Slocan Drill,  snyr, there Is no foundation for the rumor  that he will be a candidate. He says he  dees not, never has, and hopes he never  will aspire to such high honors as the chief  magistracy of the baby city of the Slocan.  A certificate of work was granted yesterday at the mining recorder's ofiice to E.  Pelleut on the Alexandla mining claim. A  location was also recorded by S. A.

SUPREME COURT CASES  protested, and it is no wonder that they  feel blue over the prospects. The coal  company is now ready to do the grind  business regardless who is hurt. The  system will of course Increase the revenues of the company but it. will kill  Fernie, which promised to be one of  the best towns in British Columbia.���  Cranbrook Herald.

His lordship gave judgment for  the plaintiff. In doing so he expressed his  regret at having to so decree, saying it  was a very distressing case, but as he was  compelled to abide by law there was no  other course open to him. He added that  he hoped the parties would be able to settle the matter ln a more equitable way.  The court then adjourned until 3:30 o'clock,  when his lordship rendered his reserved  decision in the Bremner vs. Arlington case,  giving judgment on behalf of Bremner for  work done and logs and stulls furnished,  as sued for, to the extent of $1,276.05, with  costs, but dismissed the claim for damages,  for breach of contract.
