 ESABLISHED   1892  MONDAY  MORNING,  FEBRUAEY  2$ 1902  DAILY EDITION  ROYAL WELCOME  BOQUETS ARE DISHED OUT  ALL ROUND  PRINCE HENEY HAS A HEART  TO HEART TALK WITH THE  AMERICANS  NEW YORK, February 23.���The Kron  Prinz Wilhelm, having on board prince  Henry of Russia, came within sight of  the quarantine station at 9:57 a.m., and  in ten minutes was steaming past Fort, where she was boarded by  the health oilicers. After the Kron  Prinz Wilhelm passed between forts  Hamilton and Wad worth, a salute was  fired. The ship was itopt in quarantine  but a short while, and then proceeded  to her dock, at 34th stre-et, where the  imperial yacht Hohenzollern lay. As  she passed admiral Evan's squadron a  salute of 21 guns was fired from each  ship.  NEW   YORK,   February    23.���Prince  Henry of Prussia, representative of his  brother,   the  emperor   of   Germany,   at  the launching of the latter's American  built yacht, reached here today, and was  cordially welcomed as a guest of the nation.    The  land  batteries  sounded  the  lirst greeting of a salute of 21 guns, the  rifles cf a  special naval squadron, assembled in his honor, re-echoed the sentiments of the United States, and a great  crowd lined the way into  the city, to  see and cheer the sailor prince of Ger-  -man.    The great storm against which  the Kron Prinz Wilhelm. had struggled  for days, and which had glazed the Atlantic coast in armour of ice, had lost  its force and resigned us sway to warm  .   sunshine and cheery blue skies, so there  were   no  regrets  that   the  royal  guest  was a full day late for the entertainment prepared for him.   The genuis of  Marconi,  reaching out from the storm  swept coast, had definitely located the  belated  liner,   and   made   certain   the  hour that she would reach Sandy Hook.  There was a   curtain   of   haze   off   the  hook  early  this   morning,   and  it. was  -ifter    9   o'clock   before.  the   watchers  ��_3ught  the   shadowy,  outlines   of   the  cautiously approaching liner.  Rear admiral Robiey Evans,; comman-  ��� tier of the special squadron "and honorary aide to the prince, left the flagship  with his staff in  the  naval  tug Nina.  The Nina met the Kron Prinz beyond  Fort Wadsworth, and swinging around  on the starboard side of the liner, steamed up the bay.   Prince Henry, attired in  a uniform of .an admiral of the German  navy, and surrounded by his naval and  military   staff   in   brilliant   uniforms,  stood  on tho.  bridge of the liner.    As  the naval tug drew nearer to the side of  the steamship, prince Henry and admiral  Evans caught sight of one another, and  exchanged  informal  salutes.    The  distance from the steamer to the tug was  too great for conversation, however.  As the two vessels with a flotilla of  tugs and official craft moved in past  Fort Wadsworth, the fire of the salute  of 21 guns was fired. As the first gun  sounded the prince advanced to the end  of the bridge of the Kron Prinz Wilhelm  i-and^stood=at-attention.=,As-=he=passefV  the big American flag floating over the  fortifications, he touched his cap and  the members of his suite did the same.  The flag at the jack-staff of the Kron  Prinz Wilhelm was clipped, and the German naval band accompanying the  prince played the Star Spangled Banner. The guns at Fort Wadsworth were  not silenced before those across the  narrows at Fort Hamilton boomed out  their salute.  When that ceremony was over, the  Kron Prinz Wilhelm was stopped, and  the Nina hauled around to her port  side and admiral Evans and his staft  boarded her. The passengers were  gathered on the main deck, and there  was a hearty cheer as the admiral came  up the gangway. Admiral Evans was  escorted forward alone, and in the par-  ters of captain Richter, master of tho  Kron Prinz Wilhelm, he and the prince  met. The prince came forward and  grasping his hand of the naval ofllcei  shook it warmly. "1 am very glad to  see you, sir," said the admiral, "everybody in the United States is waiting to  welcome you. lt is my pleasure, sir, tc  greet you formally in their behalf.'  "I thank you, sir, and through you.  the people of your country," responded  the prince. I am very glad to be here,  and on this splendid day. The emperor  directed me to convey his compliment;:-  to you, admiral, and I do so with ver.  great pleasure."  Admiral Evans expressed gratificatior  at the ..thoughtfullness* of the emperor.  He presented the members of his staff  and the prince gave each a hearty hand  shake and a cordial word. The newspaper correspondents, who are to accompany the prince on his tour through the  country, also were introduced by the  admiral. The prince, who was in excellent spirits, smiled'when he faced tlu  newspaper writers, and after the forma  part of the presentation, said that Ik  was quite sure that their relations wouh  be very happy. After a brief halt, dinner moved ahead, and at 10:50 waft breast of the special squadron oi*  Tompkinsville. The German standar.  was run up to the fore top of the Kror  Prinz Wilhelm and its appearance gave  the signal to the American fleet to salute. The Sn.n Francisco, Cincinnati  Oiympia and Illinois raised the German  naval standard, and then opened blank  fire.   The prince stood at attention on  the bridge, and back of him were admiral Evans and his staff, and the numerous suite of the German visitor. The  prince and his staff were especially interested in the Illinois and Oiympia, and  offered warm congratulations to the  American admiral on the splendid appearance of his squadron. The prince  said that he was very anxious to visit  the squadron and that he would do this  at his earliest moment. As the Kron  Prinz Wilhelm cleared Tompkinsville,  the fleet of small craft around her increased, and they kept their whistles  sounding. When the Kron Prinz Wilhelm came abreast of Governor's island  there was another salute, and the prmew  again stood at attention until the last  of the 21 guns were fired.  The first of the large crowds was met  at  the battery, and from there on, up  to  Recreation  pier,  where   the  largest  crowd of all had gathered.    Every pier  to which admission was not denied was  partly filled. The big liners in port were  dressed, and the   German   colors   were  displayed   at  several  points   along  the  harbor   shore.   The   prince   frequently  went to the side and either saluted or  waved   his   hand   in   acknowledgement.  To the American's present he expressed  his appreciation of the warm welcome  extended  to   him.   ' Prince   Henry  "disembarked at 12:55, walking down the  gangway from   the   Kron   Prinz0 Wilhelm into the elaborately decorated pier.  He then, passed upon a sort of landing  down a flight of stairs to the pier floor,  through   an   ornamental   gangway   and  arch to the gang plank of the Hohenzollern, which had been decorated in the  German colors and was covered half its  length.   The prince was met at the foot  of the gangway by admiral  Baudissin,  commander,of the Hohenzollern, and his  officers.    Meanwhile the band from the  Kron  Prinz  Wilhelm0 was  playing  the  German national air.    Taking the precedence due to his rank, prince Henry  walked up the gang plank, followed by  the oilicers of the Hohenzollern.    The  first of his callers to arrive after he had  arrived   on   the   yacht,   was    general  Brooke, of the United States army, accompanied by two aides. Admiral Baker  and his aide, captain West, representing  the United  States navy,  followed, and  then the German ambassador at Wash-  irgton and his brilliantly attired suite  of military and naval attaches and secretaries, and the military attache of the  German embassy at Mexico, lieutenant  Baotels.   Following the German ambassador came the special representatives  of the president of  the   United   States,  headed by Dr. Hill, flrst assistant secretary of state,  aud  including general  Corbin, colonel Bingham and commander  Cowles,  the ��� brother-in-law  of  the  president.     Captain   Nathan   Sergeant  then came on as special representative  of admiral Dewey.    The list of callers-  'was   ended   with   the   mayor's    party,'  which included the mayor himself am.  his private secretary..  About an hour was spent by the princ*  in receiving his callers, and in making  an admiral's inspection of the troop?  and crew of the Hosenzpllern. Thet.  followed luncheon. The prince boarded  the tug Nina at 3:30,.to repay his..calls,  accompanied by one aide and' admiral  Evans and ensigns Evans and Chapin.  He visited the navy yard first, called  on admiral Barker, and at Governor***  island, where he called on general  Brooke. From Governor's island, the  tug proceeded to the battleship Illinois,  where he called on admiral Evans and  inspected the ship. He "was receive-!  by a squadron with .ne honors due tu  his rank. From the Illinois, the prince  returned to the pier at 34th street and  went aboard the Hohenzollern for dinner.  7_BERLIN. February 23.���EmpergrWil-  liani received a cablegram while he" wan  at breakfast, this morning, informing  him that the Kron Prinz Wilhelm was  Hearing her destination, and that his  brother admiral prince Henry of Prussia, was well. The Sunday quiet of Berlin was broken today by the issuance of  a newspaper extra, on the arrival of the  Kron Prinz Wilhelm. This is a very unusual thing in German newspaperdom.  NEW YORK, February 23.���Prior to  his departure from Germany, it was officially announced that prince Henry  would not be interviewed, and today he  adhered strictly to this determination.  Whatever the prince has to say for publication will be given out by a member  of his staff. Captain Von Mueller, aide  de camp to the German emperor, who is  authorized to speak, not only for prince  Henry, but in a measure voices the emperor's own views, said today to the  Associated Press representatives:  "When the president, upon the inquiry  of the German emperor, whether Miss  Roosevelt would perform the ceremony  of christening his American built yacht,  had given his consent in a most graceful  manner, his majesty resolved to. show  his regard for tlie presidency by having  himself represented by a prince of his  house, on the occasion of the launching.  In contemplating this courtesy, the emperor remembered the pleasant relation  between prince Henry and admiral Dew-  ev, and rear admiral Evans, and recalled  the fact that his brother, on his return  fiom China, had expressed a strong  wish to visit the United States. The  prince is very grateful that the emperor  selected him for this mission. He is  delighted to make the acquaintance of  the great American nation at last, and  enjoys the honor of meeting the excellent man at the head of it."  time. They are all well. Miss Stone  immediately made herself known to the  authorities at Strumitza. The first news  of Miss Stone's release was contained in  a cablegram received by Mr. Dickinson,  the American consul-general at Constantinople, from the American vice-  consul at Salonica. The telegram gives  no details of the release. As Strumitza  is near the Salonica Unskb, Miss Stone  will proceed to Salonica.  'S  THE STRAIN OF THE WAR  IS RELAXING  SPAIN'S   LABOR   TROUBLE  Court Martial for Strikers -  BARCELONA, February 22.���Although  there were some resuscitation of ordinary life in this city yesterday, it was.  largely artificial. A iew public establishments re-opened, under the compulsion of the authorities, but practically  no business was transacted. The street  cars ceased running at eight in the evening and the newspapers were unable to  appear, the compositors refusing to  work. There were some isolated affrays  and attempts to sack bakeries, during  which five persons were wounded.  It was reported today, that a number  of workmen were caught in the act of  preparing bombs.  Agitators are urging the declaration  of a great strike at Madrid on February  24th in support of the strikers in Barcelona.  Advices from Valencia say the strike  there has been suppressed, but that the  workmen are clamoring for the release  of their comrades. Factories have r-  opened at Saragossa an Sabadell.  The captain general has allowed the  strikers three days in which to deliver  up all their arms. After the expiration  of that time any person found in the  possession of arms will be tried by  drumhead court martial. Orders have  been issued to all the saloons to close  at seven o'clock in the evening and citizens are not allowed to be out of their  residences after 8 p.m.  Spanish officials in London have received a private telegram from, the government at Madrid saying that no serious outcome is expected from the riots  at Barcelona, and adding that the newspapers are overestimating the importance of the disturbances.  SPECULATION IN SOUTH AFRICAN  STOCKS THE MOST REMARKABLE EVENT OF WEEK  Death of Joseph Murphy  GREENWOOD, February 23.���[Special  to The Tribune.]���Joseph Murphy, "formerly of Spokane, but latterly manager  of the Waterloo mine in Camp McKinney, died at the Sacred Heart hospital  at Greenwood today. He was taken to  the hospital on Chistmas evening - suf-  ieringT'from pneumonia and other complications. His recovery was considered doubtful for the. past month. He  was looked .after by George Dougherty,  president of the Greenwood Miners'  Union, who is an old friend, and also  acting on behalf of the Camp McKinney  Miners' Union. The deceased was a native of Cork, Ireland. He was, aged  about 45, and leaves two brothers, a  nephew and a niece at Cripple Creek, as  well as other relatives in Colorado. It  is intended to bury the body here on  Tuesday, unless the relatives request  otherwise.  The Naden-Flood block in the heart  of the business section, narrowly escaped destruction by fire today. The prompt  action of the fire department alone prevented this loss.  Miss Stone Released  CONSTANTINOPLE,   February   23 ���  Miss  Stone,  the  American  missionary,  who,  with  Mme.  Tsilka,  was  captured  by brigands in the district of Salonica,  on September 30th   last,   lias   been   released and arrived at Strumitza. Macedonia,   at  three   o'clock   this   morning.  Nobody wns at Strumitza to meet Miss  Stone as the brigands had given no indication where they proposed to release j  the   prisoners.     Mme.   Tsilka   and   her j  baby  were  also  released  at the same ,  Ten Years Imprisonment  LONDON, February 22.���Sentences  .were today pronounced on the prisoners  found guilty of complicity in the bank  of Liverpool frauds. Thomas Goudie,  the bookkeeper of the bank, and Burge,  the pugilist, were each sentenced to ten  years' imprisonment, and F. T. Kelly,  a bookmaker of Bradford, and Styles,  another bookmaker, each received two  years. Counsel had previously announced that Lawrie Marks, the American  bookmaker who is supposed to have  committed suicide; James Mances, another American bookmaker who is also  missing, and Burge had ��91,000 of the  bank's money, of which amount ��76,000  has been recovered, Burge having returned ��30,000, while ��12,0000 and  ��34,000 stood to the credit of Marks and  Mances respectively, in a bank. Kelly  and Stiles had divided ��75,000 between  themselves and Kelly had now restituted  ��17,000 and Stiles ��6,5000.  NEW YORK, February 22.���In a dispatch  dated London, I. N. Ford, special correspondent of the Tribune, says: The activity in mining stock. remains the leading  feature of the stock exchange "speculation.  It storts up fresh after every set back and  is maintained even when the supply of loanable capital In the market is small, and  the discount rates are firm. New Rhodesia  companies are forming, and there is a renewal of activity along the line. This  speculation cannot be attributed to the war  news, although that is improving, with  practical evidence that the burghers are  now employed as scouts In the British service, and are entrapping their fellow Boers  easily. Tho real secret of the Kaffir boom  is' because the British government intends  to remove the disabilities from the mining  industry, and convert it into a source of  wealth which will attract immigration on  a large scale. The Farrelly law," imposing!  a heavy tax upon the output "of gold, is  one of the Transvaal statutes repealed by  lord Milner, and other legislative obstacles  to the free development of the mining industry have been removed. The capitalist  class is satisfied that mining will become  vastly more profitable than ever before,  the .speculators and investors are 'taking  their cues from them.  The prosecuting authorities are receiving  more credit than they deserve for their success in obtaining Lhe restitution ot a large  proportion of the immense sum taken from  the Bank of Liverpool by Goudie and. the  gang of. turf gamblers. The work was easy,'  for when the forger was arrested he made  a clean breast of everythirg, and enabled  the prosecution to recover the bulk of the  plunder., Goudie was a unique criminal in  committing his stupendous series of forgeries, and instead of profiting, by them,  allowed turf gamblers to rob him systematically. The remarkable case willlinvolve  a radical reform in beekkeeping in many  English banks.  American buying of iron and steel on a  large, scale is reported from Midlands. The  orders -art: lhe same ns' those r&eived in  Germany from America, and are explained  in the trade as the result of enormous domestic demand for raw material in the  United States.  Dr. Newman Hall's funeral at Christ  church, Westminster Bridge road, was attended by over a thousand people, including representative delegates from all the  prominent non-conformist societies. Canon  Fleming Michaels was the only conspicuous clergyman of the English church,  joining in the simple but impressive cere-  comnies in memory of the non-conformist  chamriion.  The English press is still talking about  lord Rosebery's secession as fresh proof  of Liberal disunion. The divisions of that  party are of long standing, and must always exist when it represents the more  -.���regressive elements of the general electorate. Only the commanding force of Gladstone's character imparted unity and direction to the party during the greater part  of his career, and even he was not strong  enough to prevent the _openjng of the lines  Captured 167 Boers  LONDON, February 22.���A dispatch  from lord Kitchener dated Pretoria Friday, February 21st, says that colonel  Park, with three hundred mounted national scouts, recently surprised a Boer  force at Nooitgedacht, Transvaal Colony, and captured 164 prisoners, together with a quantity of munitions of  war and a number of horses and wagons. There were no British casualties.  The prisoners include field cornets  Joubert and Dejater and lieutenant  Viljoen.  Big Factory Fire  AMHERST, Nova Scotia, February  22.���The erecting shops of Rhodes Curry  Company, car builders, together with  the contents, consisting of eight box  and seven flat cars ready to run and a  large number of cars under construction,  besides a large quantity of lumber, were  destroyed by fire yesterday. The loss  will be heavy.  Another Canadian Factory  FORT WILLIAM, February 22.���A. A.  Kennedy, general superintendent of the  Deering Harvesting Machine Company,  cf Chicago, is here with the idea of locating a Canadian factory this year.  The council meets tonight to confer  with him.  of cleavage. On the home rule question  the Liberal party remains divided, as It has  been since Gladstone's death, and the formation of the Liberal-Imperialist group, Including lord Rosebery, Mr. Asquith, Mr.  Grey, and Mr. Fowler, is neither new nor  startling. What is really important Is the  deliberate attempt of lord Rosebery to  prove, that, like Gladstone, he is a necessary man, without whom the Liberals cannot be permanently be united. Temporarily  he has failed to accomplish anything, and  the want of success is due mainly to the  lack of constructive ability and administrative originality. He has taken away all  tho Liberal principles at one sweep, and he  has not set up anything to replace them.  He has represented a species of political  agnosticism. Something besides tho leveling process Is required If the old articles of  tho Liberal faith are to be expunged. A  new democratic party must lie formed. Till  this is done lord Rosebery cannot unite  the distracted party.  The effect of lord Rosebery's separation Is  likely to be disastrous. Sir Henry Camp-  bell-Bannerman's leadership of tho old  Radical hands has tempted him to repulse  lord Rosebery overtures for reconciliation,  and he is momentarily left in supreme control of the fortunes of the Liberal party.  Ni practical politician thinks that sir Henry Campboll-Bannerman can reunite the  parly on the basis of pro-Boer sympathy  and Irish home rule, or in an emergency  form an alternative government organization. The Rosebery group may convince the  Liberals that sir Henry Campboll-Bannerman is an impossible leader, even if it does  not demonstrate that lord Rosebery is a  necessary leader. In this way ultimate reunion may bo promoted by the temporary  secession of lord Rosebery. He apparently  knows his own mind, and is bent upon  leading a reorganized party after proving  that nobody else can do it.  Tho Unionist, government Is delivered  from all political anxiety by the reversion  of the opposition to faction fueds. In  South Africa it continues to plod wearily,  if more hopefully. The successful ambuscades, like that of tho second dragoons,  light up the ardor of the burghers, but  there is a gradual wearing down of the resources of resistance on each side of the  Vaal. Today's news contains an account of  tli3 British exploit at Nooitgedacht, with  Boers themselves entrapped. In military reform the government remains incorrigible  and incompetent. Mr. Broderick's manage  ment of the remount scandal excites discontent, open revolt even, among the best  disciplined circles, and promises no larger  results than the fixity of the members' dinner hour, legislative sanction for the week  end adjournment to country houses, and  the curtailment of opportunities for self  advertisement by the postponment of the  question hour when galleries are empty.  These are not matters of high politics. The  government will not pull itself together on  the education question until after Easter,  and it is without a definite policy in Ireland where the no rent agitation by the  United Irish league may be the sequel to  evictions of lord do Freyne's estate.  The situation in Ireland is particularly  serious because it is the direct result of  a government scheme for buying out the  landlords and winding up the agrarian dis-  ccntent. The settlement of the Dillon estate  by purchase has unsettled the de Freyne  estate, and other properties whose landlords refuse to sell out. The ministers take  everything easily, even the menace of the  revival- of the agrarian agitation In Ireland on a large scale. They are stale, but  Indispensable, with no possible successors  among the faction rent mob in the Liberal  Donnybrook fair.  The government has gained prestige  abroad by stronger and more consistent diplomacy. This is evident from the change  of the tone of the continental press, which  now regards" lord Lansdowne as a great  statesman, taking the lead In diplomacy  in the far east, and having the moral support of the United States and Germany.  Secretary Hay's Manchurian note has induced the Spectator to lament that lord  Lansdowne had not joined him in. joint representations, instead of plunging Into an alliance with Japan. It is difficult for the  mrst trustworthy friends of America and  England to be convinced that no European  power can have more than the moral support of the United States, and that a formal alliance is out of the question. Otherwise foreign questions remain in the background., The Germany, tariff situation has  not cleared and the forecast of the possibilities of compromise among the factions  at Brussels is premature. The conference Is  still deliberating, with the prospect of ultimate action brightening.  The account of the Barcelona riots have  not been intelligible, especially as the details of the loss of life and the extent of  the disturbance have been grossly exaggerated. There is no direct evidence that  the anarchists have Instigated the riots,  and the rumors that the Carlists will take  advantage of a general outbreak are sensational. The resignation of the Italian cabL  net is a small flurry quickly ended.  The cost of coronation as represented In  civil service estimates, is ��1,000,000. This  may include the expenses of two processions, and the alterations In the A��pey.  but obviously does hot include the ���"entertainment of the guests by the crown, and  the special embassys of colonists and various others. The street decorations will be  managed by a committee of property owners, the burough councils having shown little energy In making arrangements of a  comprehensive scope. Clubland has already  come to the front with a unique decorative  scheme of St. James street. Sir Wilfrid  Laurier's presence becomes especially important, since the Australian premiers are  begging off on one pretext or another. Sir  Wilfrid and Mr. Barton will be the chief  colonial representatives, and will have the  places of honor in the Abbey, and probably  at both conventions. Lord Strathcona will  occupy a seat among the peers. The minor  colonial officials are not more likely than  the secretaries of the diplomatic embassies  to obtain entrance to the Abbey. The secretaries of the American embassy here-  frankly admit that they will be unable to  obtain seats in the Abbey or special privileges for the American visitors. The facilities for seeing the procession outside will  be ample,_and_tourists_need_not-make nr-  rangements until the last moment.

KRUGER RECEIVES WARNING  SENATORS EIGHT  CAROLINA MEMBERS MIX  MATTERS  Time to Sue for Peace  LONDON, February 22.���A correspondent  of the Times, wiring from Bank Kop, Eastern Transvaal, says the Boers are'thoroughly scared, and are more alert than  ever, keeping for the most part well beyond  striking distance. Prisoners testify by their  appearance and their statements to the  straits to which the burghers are reduced  by the slowly extending blockhouse lines.  The great difficulty with which the British  had to contend, namely, distance, is being  overcome. The Boers are still far from being cooped up, but proportionately as the  blockhouses' restrict their movements, so  British mobility Is increased. There has  now been run from Ermelo a line to Bank  Kop, which latter advanced depot is being  provisioned easily and securely from Ermelo, and brings the-columns twenty-three  miles nearer the Boers remaining on the  Swaziland border.  LONDON, February 22.���M. Blowitz, the  Times' Paris correspondent, ��sends an article which will appear in the Rome Tri-  buna today, and which is written by the  Paris correspondent of that paper, signor  Capponi, in the form of an open letter to  Mr. Kruger. In prefacing It De Blowitz remarks that Capponi forgets that Kruger  has not borrowed from the bible the humility it inculcates.  Capponi tells Kruger that he has borrowed from the bible his force and energy,  and also urges him to borrow from history  .the indication of his duty toward the country he represents. Kruger is advised to imitate the example of "Victor Emanuel In 1848,  and that of other great men, and sue for  peace. Whatever Kruger does, says Cap-.  ponni, there will no longer be a Transvaal  except as a geographical expression. Now  is the moment to act; perhaps it will never  come acai.n.  WILL PBOBABLY BE SUSPENDED  FOB THIRTY DATS AS  PUNISHMENT  Not for Publication  NEW YORK, February 22.���Henry  Norman has succeeded in inducing Mr.  Balfour to throw some fresh light on  the famous Spion Kop dispatch, says a  London correspondent to the Tribune.  It now seems that sir Redvers Buller  contented himself with forwarding  Charles Warren's account of the battle  with two opinions of general Warren's  conduct. In both of these general Buller adversely criticized his second in  command, but the one in which he really  spoke his mind was marked "not necessarily for publication." General Buller refused to write a connected story  of the whole affair. Mr. Balfour indignantly repudiates the suggestion that  general Buller was asked to tamper with  the truth in order to please the war  office.  Smuggler in Good Company  NEW YORK, Februtry 23.���Diamonds  valued,at $4000, sewn in a red flannel  belt, were smuggled into this country  by a passenger on the Kron Prinz Wilhelm, which arrived today. The passenger gave him name as Michael Leinkran,  said he is 21 years old and lived in this  city. He will be arraigned tomorrow.  The treasury agent was on the watch for  Leinkran, as a month ago he received  information which led him to believe a  smuggling attempt would be made. The  prisoner sailed from here about a month  ago, and says he was given the belt in  Bremen by a stranger who told him to  take it to a relative here. He disclaimed all knowledge of its contents.

Important Mining Deal  BUTTE, Montana, February 22.���One of  the most important mining deals that has  been effected in Butte in many years was  consummated-today when the-CbltisS-Par^"  rot Mining & Smelting Company sold the  Colusa-Parrot mine to the Anaconda Copper Mining Company. The terms of the  sale have not been made public, but it is  understood the consideration was a large  one. In addition to the sale of the mine  this deal brings to a close the famous litigation between the Colusa people and the  Anaconda company, which has been In the  courts for several years. During the trial  the famous Blue vien theory wns brought  out and in exploiting this theory many of  the most able mining experts and scientists  were engaged on the case. It was variously  estimated that tho trial of the case cost  both sides fully JSOO.OOO. The mine has been  a steady producer for many years and Is  still considered one of the best copper properties on the famous hill.  Death of the Toombs Angel .  NEW YORK, February 22.���Mrs.  Ellen Foster, who was killed in the  Park avenue hotel lire, was for many  years an active worker in the city prisons ��� among the women brought there  under various charges.

School Teachers for Filipinos  NEW YOKK, February 23.���The United  States transport "McLellan, which left her  dock yesterday and anchored in the bay for  the night, put to sea this afternoon on her  long voyage to Manila, by way of Gibraltar and the Suez canal. On board the  McLellan are two hundred school teachers,  most of them coming from the middle  states aud the south and yest.  WASHINGTON, February 23���The  topic of chief interest in senatorial circles today, in fact everywhere in'official  Washington, was the fight in the senate  yesterday between senators Tillman and  McLaurin of South Carolina. There  had been a number of conferences  among the senators as to what shall be  done to preserve the dignity of the senate, and to manifest its sentiment with  reference to two senators who violated  its traditions. While no plan of procedure has been agreed upon, it is learned that there will be very deliberate action, and it is said to be more than  likely that it will be not less than thirty;  days before . South Carolina senators  will be restored to their full powers'as  senators.  WASHINGTON, February 22���Scarcely had senator Tillman resumed his seat  after a remarkable speech today against  the Philippine bill today, when there  was enacted one of the most sensational  scenes ever witnessed in the history of  theUnited States senate.  Pale to the lips, and trembling with  the emotion which he endeavored  to control, senator McLaurin of South  Carolina arose and addressed the senate,  speaking to a question of personal privilege. Instantly a hush fell over the-  senate and over the throngs in the galleries. The atmosphere seemed charged  with excitement.���$ With breathless inter- -  est the auditors, both on the floor and  in the galleries, hung upon every word  uttered by the South, Carolina senator.  Despite the emotion under which he  labored, senator McLaurin seemed to  be the calmest man in the chamber.  He spoke with deliberation and his enunciation, was clear; and.disti net-- Every-  word'he; uttered 'Seemed to be felt as  well as heard in the remotest part of the  historic old hall.  "Mr. President," he began, "I rise to  a question of personal privilege." "During my absence," continued senator McLaurin, "a few moments from the senate chamber, in attendance upon the  committee on Indian affairs, the senator who has just taken his seat (senator Tillman) said that improper influences had been used in changing the  vote of somebody on the Paris treaty,  and then went on later and said that it  applied to the senator from South Carolina, who had been giyen_..he patronage in that state. I think'f got the sense  of the controversy."  Still controlling himself with an effort,  but still very calmly and with a carefully modulated tone, senator McLaurin  said���and his words cut through the  senate chamber like a knife:  "I desire to state, Mr. President, I  would not use as strong language as I  intend had I not soon after the senate  met replied  to these  insinuations and  said that they jwere untrue."    "I_ now   say," continued senator McLaurin, with  distinct emphasis upon every word, and  half turning toward his colleague, senator Tillman, who sat in the same row,  only three seats away, "that the statement is a wilful, malicious and deliberate lie."  Senator McLaurin got no further with  his statement when senator Tillman  sprang upon him and the two engaged  in a rough and tumble fight.  Will Increase the Tax  VANCOUVER, Feoruary 22.���Private  formation received from Ottawa yesterday is to the effect that the majority  report ot the Chinese commission,  whicli recently investigated Oriental  labor conditions in British Columbia,  will recommend the increase of the per  capita tax on Chinese immigrants to  $000, while the minority of the commission suggest $300 as a compromise figure. Tho commission's report was delivered to the secretary of state, honorable R. W. Scott, yesterday, by the commission's secretary, F. J. Deane.  Clark Survey About Completed  SAN FRANCISCO, February 22.���United  States senator W. A Clark of Montana, Is  rapidly completing the final surveys for his  San Pedro, Los Angeles & Salt Lake railroad. From the reports of chief engineer C.  H. Hawgood it is shown the approximate  length ot the line between San Pedro and  Salt Lake City will be 800 miles. Six hundred miles of the road havo been surveyed  and a portion of the road built. It is estimated that by paying cash instead of raising money by a bond Issue, the road can be  built and equipped for $20,000,000. Cash is  being raised by assessing the stock.  American Diplomacy  CHICAGO, February 22.���Dr. and Mrs.  H. a'. Thomas < f Ci> cago, have been refused passports to visit tho South African  concentration camps by secretary Hay, of  the slate department at Washington. Dr.  and Mrs. Thomas intended going to South  Africa for the purpose of distributing  money for use of tho camp prisoners. Secretary May, it Is said, gave as his reason  for refusing the passports that president  Roosevelt would object and consequently  he would not make application for them  to lord Pauncefote. w  i  I  P  --ht  ll  f  I if  I  fr  *'t  p  ���_���  4*?

It  has  swallowed  the  assurance of the solicitor for the Crow's Nest  Coal Company, that James J. Hill does  not hold a controlling interest in the  stock of the coal company, and expresses  surprise   that   The   Tribune   does   not  swallow   it   as   well.    The   statement,  that a majority   of   the   stock   in   the  Crow's  Nest  Coal   Company  does  not  stand in the  name  of James  J.   Hill,  may be true.    But this  by no means  proves conclusively that Mr. HiU does  not control the  company.    There  are  other methods of determining the controlling  interest  of   the  Crow's   Nest  Coal  Company  than  presents  itself in  __a_search_jof__Lhe_com_^nyis^stpckiregiS2_  ter.   It has been shown that the Crow's  Nest Coal Company prefers to ship its  coke to United States smelting centres,  rather than to smelting points in British Columbia, and it is further charged  that coke is sold to United States sme-  ters for a lesser rate than that exacted  fr-im  biaish Columbia smelters.    The  Tribune has suggested that this preference shown  by  the  Crow's  Nest  Coal, in the filling of orders from  thi  United  States  smelters,   is  due to  ths control o\er the coal company ex-  c-i-c*sed by Mr. Hill, to the end that, the  coal n itrpauy in which he is so heavily  interested  should   supply  business   for  his*, railways rather than for the Canadian Pacific.    This contention is fully  supucrted  liy a recent letter  from D.  Miller,   second   vice   president   of   the  Great    No them    Railway    Company,  wh'ch wa* published a short time ago  in tho Spokane Chronicle.   In the course  cf this letter vice president Miller says:  ,: I llnd I'.pon investigation the situation  '��� to !�����> that the Canadian Pacific have  " increased their order for coal to such  " an extent that the coal company is not  " able to fill their outsiae orders, and the  " Canadian Pacific will not furnish cars  " for outside orders until their own or-  " ders have   been   filled.     Under   these  " conditions the coal company is power-  " less.   This company has had an order  " for 40 cars of coal per day, but same  " has been shut off.   I do not think we  " can depend upon any relief until we  " get our own line completed into the  " the coal fields, which I regret to say,  " however, will not be in time for this  " winter's  business,  as  we  do not ex-  " pect to have the line completed be-  " for May next."  supplies, and not as a hindrance. But  when Mr. Hill gets his own line of railway into the coal fields it is clear that  the mining and smelting industry of the  province will be his mercy.  What comfort can the people of southern British Columbia take from the assurance of the solicitor of the Crow's  Nest Coal Company that Mr. Hill does  not .hold a controlling interest in the  coal company in view of the statements  recently made under oath; by Mr. Hill  himself, in his examination in Minneapolis, respecting the intentions of the  promoters of the Northern Securities  Company. Briefly, Mr. Hill stated it as  the aim of these promoters, of whom he  is one, to control the Great Northern  and Northern Pacific railway companies,  and further that the Northern Securities Company is at the -present time  negotiating for the purchase of the  stock of the Crow's Nest Coal Company.  This stock, like others, is; on the market and its purchase becomes only a  question of price. Assuming that Mr.  Hill carries but his professed intention  and purchases, is there any sane person  in British Columbia who will contend  that the Crow's Nest Coal Company will  be opeuatied with a viewi to supplying  business for a rival railway in preference to its own railways? To say that  the present prospect is hot threatening  to British Columbia's smelter m,ea'i*��  nothing else, since preference for United States smelters in the purchase of  fuel supplies cannot but prove injurious  to British Columbia's mining and smelting development. British Columbia has  made out the strongest possible case as  to the necessity on the part of the federal government of furnishing competition in the supply of coal and coke, The  federal government has, the means at  hand and should apply the remedy.

"The Boers who are brought down to  the coast to be sent away look with  amazement, at the peaceful life there and  are vastly surprised to see the British  in charge. They all think the coast  is in the hands of the Boers. Things  are misrepresented to those . ignorant  burghers. Talk about the English being hard on their prisoners and cruel  beyond humanity and all that! Why,  I know for a positive fact that the Boers  under flags of truce go to the English  and ask for bandages and medicines and  they're not refused. No sir, not once  have the English refused to give out  those things to the enemy. But, the  other way, when an Englishman is taken  prisoner. Why, the Boers starve him  three of four days, and then strip him  of his clothes and send him off, telling  him to report to his captain. Sometimes  they paint the soldiers all colors and  tell him to go back to their camp. No,  I tell you. the Boers don't want education. Of course, I am speaking of the  masses. There are some who go to  school and want to be something, but  they are few. The Boer is indolent,  willing to heat the Kaffir slaves, and  have him do all the work, and let me  tell you that the natives of Africa are  waiting their chance to get at the Boers.  They have been their slaves and were  badly treated and they await a chance  to pay up. ,  "If the British army could be withdrawn from South Africa, say in twenty-  four hours, all the native tribes around  the Boers would swoop down on them.  Those natives respect the British and  ���hold off because of them. They say  the Irish soldiers won't fight agamst  Boers. That's all nonsense. Every  Irishman in the army down there knows  what the Boers are. Knowing, they'll  fight against them. Why, the Boers hate  Catholics as the devil hates holy water.  I say this because many Catholic societies have assisted the Boers. They don't  know what they are doing."  , When asked what he thought the  chances were for the Boers, Dr. Willgansz said: "It took the best soldiers  of this country three years to capture  one Indian. But they did it. The English will do it, too."  BOERS ARE WELL TREATED  The above letter doubtless explains  the shortage of cars, of which so much  has been heard, and it is worth remembering that the car shortage operated as a guarantee to the British Columbia smelters in the matter of fuel  In the Concentration Camps  BUFALLO, February 22.-���Dr. C. J.  WillgaWCa"w^irknlDWh"Bun'alb"veterin-  ary surgeon, has returned from South  Africa, whither he went in his professional capacity as an employee of the  British government. Dr. Willgansz  takes issue with stories recently told  in this city by Boer representatives, and  he spoke freely to a reporter at his  home, No. 216 Carolina street. Dr. Willgansz went to South Africa with a cargo  of horses for the British army. He  left New Orleans on October 1st, 1901.  On the ship were 1110 horses and 22 of  them died en route. Dr. Willgansz lirst  stop was at Capetown, but the ship continued up the Indian ocean SOO miles  to Durban before the horses were unloaded. The doctor was in South Africa  a month, and in that time he says a  good opportunity was given him to study  the Boer as an indiviaual. His opinion  of the burgher is not flattering.  Dr. Willgansz was asked about the  detension or reconcentrado camps which  have been the cause of many bitter attacks upon the British by Boer sympathizers.  "It has been stated that the women  and children in those camps are insufficiently fed," said he. "That is simply not true. I was in those camps���  lots of them���and I saw for myself day  after day. The people in them are well  fed, better than they ever were before  in their lives. If they don't like the  life there, it's because they have to'  keep clean. Some of the Boers that are  brought in there haven't had a bath in  five years. But the British make them  keep clean and as healthy as possible.  There are doctors in attendance and the  people get medicines when they need  them. I don't say that all of the Boers  are uneducated and don't wash but  most of them live like heathen. There  are a few of them educated and civilized,  but the majority stand in the light of  progress in every possible way.  "Of course, the leaders are intelligent  men, and their forces are hardly more  than slaves. They believe just what  their leaders tell them. I happened to  be away back from the coast for a few  days and the Boers in there all thought  that Capetown, Port Elizabeth, East  London, and in fact, all the towns and  country on the seacoast, were in the  hands of the Boers. That is a fact. The  leaders have told them such is the case  and they believe It   They are told that  WANTTND SLOANITO RIOE  Will Seek His Reinstatement  A LONDON, February 22.���Lord Beresford has written to Tod Sloan, the American jockey, who is in Paris, urging  him to apply for renewal of his English  license to ride. In view or lord Beres-  ford's connection with the king's stable  and the understanding that William C.

The annual game of foot ball played  under association rules between Oxford  and Cambridge, took place today at the  Queen's club here and was won by Oxford with a score of two to nothing.  The Irish party attaches great significance to the evicition of the tenants  of forty farms on Defreyene estate in  Rosscommon country, Ireland, for refusal to pay rent, and intends to make  a fierce parliamentary struggle over the  matter. John Redmond, chairman of  the Irish parliamentary party said to a  representative of the Associated Press:  "Not only are forty tenants now sold  out, but many hundreds of others are  being proceeded against. The country  thereabouts is alive with police, who patrol the roads day and night, force themselves into people's houses and in every  way create a reign of terror. Fifteen  representative public men of the district have been imprisoned, merely for  taking part in meetings of a peaceable  nature, and many others are being prosecuted. Everything has been peaceable  so far but the proceedings of the government are so extraordinary that we cannot help seeming anxious lest violence  occurs. The cause of all the trouble is  the government's refusal to face the unanimous demands of Irish people, that  it pass legislation giving compulsory  powers to put out Irish landlords and  thus restore to the Irish people their  land."  David Mills, the Canadian statesman,  in an article in the March number of  the Empire Review, written while Mr.  Mills was Canadian minister of justice,  bitterly assails president Roosevelt's  and senator Lodge's interpretation of  Monroeism. He declares that the United States "are so long enamored of their  own political institutions and so devoted  to self worship that they think no others  are deserving of admiration." Mr. Mills  says that it would be to the state of  Maine's commercial advantage to enter  the Canadian federation, and says:  America has no more right to dictate to  South and Central America than to Canada." In conclusion Mr. Mills quotes  the United States reply to the Barbary  States. "We prefer -war to tribute,"  adding that the United States must not  be surprised when the occasion arises  if she receives  from  European states-  00' 000-00' 00' 00' 00 ' 00' 00 ��� 00- 00  '00- 00 ' 00' 00 ' ���0���  -.00* '      ' 0^ ��� 0^ ��� 0^ ' ^0^ '^0 ' t  * 1MT_g -1___,- i___p- WBBm ��� <��__v^5_��' <  ��� 5_T- ��^. ^. ��r.��_% ��_T. *  *__5T *  *^____. *  ���-tBT-1***^*^  to  to  9\  to  to  to  to  to  to  9}  to  '*_*  36 BAKEK STREET, NELSON, B.

OPENING UP ALBERTA GOAL  Work Commenced on Second Tunnel  This week sees another long Step  taken towards the systematic opening  up and develpoment of the Frank,mine,  work having been begun un the proposed new main entry, while plans have  been formed to begin another main entry still further up the mountain on  the coal seam.  The tunnel began this week is 340  feet above the present main entry, and  41 feet below another tunnel will be  driven to ventilate and drain the entry,  which has also been begun.  The coal from this new entry will be  dropped down the hill on an incline, a  two-car surface tram, to a road which  ���will be built around the hill from the  tipple on a % per cent grade. The coal  will be taken on this to the tipple and  loaded on the railroad cars . with the  coal from the present workings.  Supplies for the new workings will  be carried up by.the train in an empty  car, the weight of the descending car of  coal furnishing the power.  This work means a large increase in  the working force, the driving of the  tunnel, the building of the road and the  installing of the tram' car calling for  men.  A little later on, when the deep snow  now on the mountain has gone, another main entry will be begun 400 feet  above No. 2, and 740 feet above the level  of the present main entry.���Frank Sen-  tiner^-^^^"-^^-^^^-^ ; ,^-=^=  KOOTENAY....

TESLA TALKS OF HIS PLANS  Will Improve Marconi's System  Nicola Tesla says he is nearly ready to  make a text of his wireless teleyrapliy at  lony distances, lie expects to be able to  make a definite announcement on the subject within three months.  Mr. Tesla's work and plans in this connection have been surrounded by much  mystery. He haa been experimenting- for  several yours. Some of his experiments  were conducted on the top of Pike's Peak,  which Rivo rise to tho report that his sending and receiving stations were to be located at very high altitudes.  In August last, however, he purchased  20H acres of land at Wardenclyffe, Long  ."Island,, and announced that his principal  station on this side of the Atlantic would  bo located there. Wardenclyffe i.s on the  north shore of Long Island, about sixty-  live miles from New York. It is reached by  the Port Jefferson branch ol" the Long Island railroad. ,  Since tho purchase of the land work has  Veen going forward rapidly on the construction of buiidinys. The; plant. ��� when  completed will consist of live or six buildings. It is reported that Mr. Tesla intends  to remove his entire electrical laboratory  from East Houston street, N��\v York, to  WarrlenclylVe, but the Inventor declines to  discuss plans on tit is subject.  The most interesting building in course  of erection at W'ardenclylTe is the tower,  from which wireless messages will be sent  ond received. When completed ' it will be  21ti feet. high. The diameter at the base is  100 feet, and at the top SO feet. It Is constructed of wood and iron. The secrets of  the interior of the tower are closely guarded. It is known, however, that at the base  of the tower there is an entrance to a well  ]_0 feet deep with a staircase leading down  into it. From the bottom of the well there  will, be four, tunnels, each 100 foot long,  which are now being excavated. Most of  the electrical apparatus, a portion of which  is already in.position, will be located at or  below the surface of the ground.  Mr. Tesla has recently taken out patents  on several new devices for receiving wireless messages. The purpose of his new instruments is to increase the forces of the.  impulses produced by the Hertz waves.  Speaking ol* his system  he said:  "Tlie current which 1 shall use will be  of the familiar alternating type. The energy which is generated in that form will  Ik: stored in a condenser, but after its discharge therefrom its intensity of the vibrations will be magnified 10,000 times.  These vibrations will be of the kind best  calculated for transmission through the  earth, which is my best conductor. At the  receiving station I will provide means for  magnifying the force of the incoming bi-  brations a quarter of a million times."  It is not known where the Tesla station  on the other side of the Atlantic will be located. The inventor is conducting his work  as secretly us possible, because he does  not want his rivals to learn of his plans.  It i.s known among his friends that he was  greatly disappointed because Marconi was  the first to send a wireless message across  the Atlantic, an honor which he had hoped  to win for himself. He has declared, how-  ^ever._=.thati-he^.expocts^-to^eclipse^-the^per���  formanco of 'Marconi when he gets his  system i noperation. J lis only comment for  publication when Marconi's success was  announced was:  '���I never doubt the statements of my coworkers. I prefer to wait until I open communication myself."  ROW OVER HINDO TWINS  Show Sentiment Too Strong  PARTS, February 22.���No recent topic has  monopolized interest in Paris so completely as tho surgical operation which parted  the Hindoo twins.  A violent controversy Is on over the  ethics of the case. Certain prominent phy-  (Vii-i-ins attack Dr. Doyen, who performed  the operation, saying that while he did  brilliant work with remarkable speed, his  allowing photographs and even a biogruph  to be present was unbecoming a member  of the profession.  Dr. Doyen retorts that the operation was  a rare one and therefore interesting. Consequently a complete record, including a  biograph representation of it, should be  available for medical purposes and foreign practitioners.  The Francais (a newspaper) published  long descriptions of the operation, but editorially denounces Dr. Doyen's self- advertising and alleges that Mrs. Coleman, an  American woman, who poses as the foster  mother of the twins, actually bought the  twins and farmed them out to Barnum in  Iho United Stales and afterwards to a one-  h-orse traveling French show, where the  twins got consumption. The Francais declares that it was Mrs. Coleman's cwn idea  to biograph the operation, so that one or  both of the girls should survive that either  of the pair could be exhibited with the  moving pictures, showing how the knife  had narted them.  Other papers demand that the police and  the humane societies intervene to stop disgraceful exploitation  of all  human  freaks.  .The World correspondent has ascertained  from Dr. Doyen himself that, in addition to  the photographers and Mrs. Coleman  there were present sculptor Beinstamm,  who had besn commissioned to make three  wax groups, showing the surgeon, his assistants, tlie sisters of charity and the patients stretched on an operating table.  These groups are said to have already been  <old for $'.09,000 apiece to New York, Paris,  'V  i  THE NELSON TRIBUNE:  MONDAY MORNING, FEBRUARY % 1902  ' -rrmrrrrT rjr  BA^K OF COMMERCE  WITH WHICH 18 AMALGAMATED  THE BANK OF  BRITISH COLUMBIA.

PREPARING FOR TOURISTS  Field as a Summer Resort  VANCOUVER, February 22.���The Canadian Pacific railway is getting ready for  any boom in the Hookies that may come  from the explorations and writings of Edward AVhymper, the man who has conquered the Alps and the Andes. He returned home to London after a. season  spent in British Columbia, very much in  love with what he calls the Switzerland of  Canada. He has given that title to a new  book which ho is issuing., It deals with his  explorations of the mountains" around  Field. A.s peak climbers pay much attention  to what Mr. Whyrnper says,, it is expected  that the next few seasons will see many  experts with alpen-stock come to this province to Hnd out for themselves tho wonders whicli their veteran leader writes  about.  Tho Canadian Pacific Is preparing for  them. Trainmaster Cary-ol* Field has given  out the statement that the company will  spend between $.10,00'.) and $50,000 in improvements around that station this season. The  idea is to make it the great, holiday resort  pf the mountains. A skating and curling  pavilion, a coasting landing and bowling  alley are all to be added to the natural attractions of the place. A chalet, to cost  $0000, is also to be erected at Emerald lake,  that wonderful sheet of water of delicate  hue high up in tlie mountains.  lt has also before been announced that  the company also intends to "commence  work this year on the reduction of; the  grade of the big grade east of Field. This  grade is the heaviest of the whole system  and is an enormous1 cost to the company.  To overcome It the line will cross the  Kicking Horse river at Field, then a tunnel V. ill be-built through 'ii- spur of Mount  Field, which will allow the line to follow  the west bank of the north fork lo the  famous valley called Yoho by the discoverer, the late superintendent Duscheney.  These improvements will make tho distance between Field and Hector about 30  miles instead of nine as at present. The  grade will be reduced so that one engine  can haul a full train, thus doing away with  the pushers at Field.  Another work contemplated is the reduction of the Palliser grade. This is to be  done by following the river above Palliser  and by doing away with the mud tunnel at  Palliser, either by making an open cut or  by cleaning out the old tunnel and lining it  properly.  FIFTEEN LIVES ARE LOST  In New York Hotel Fire  NEW YORK, February 22���Fifteen  persons lost their lives and fifty or  more were injured in a fire which was  communicated early today from the  71st regiment's armory to the Park avenue hotel. The armory was destroyed,  entailing a loss estimated at $050,000.  In the hotel the damage was principally  in the tiers of rooms surrounding the  elevator shafts. The loss to the hotel  building is estimated ux $100,000.  When tlie fire started in the armory,  scores cf guests in the Park avenue  hotel were awakened by the clang of the  engines, and crowded the windows. It  was about forty-five minutes after the  ilanies were discovered in the armory-  before they were spread to the hotel,  but in spite of this, many of the guests  were in their rooms dressed in their  night clothes, and some of them were  in bed. The firemen, as soon as they  learned that the hotel was in danger, decided to devote all their efforts to the  rescue of its occupants. Men and women  appeared at the windows on the Park  avenue side of the hotel and called for  help.  Mrs. Charlotte Bennett and her husband Harold, of Alabama, stood on a  ledge on the fifth floor, just over the  portico over the main entrance to the  hotel. Mrs. Bennett was terror stricken  and screamed again and again for some  one to rescue her. Her husband grasped  her, and from the -crowd of thousands  gathered in the streets there were  shouts warning them not to jump. When  it was seen that she was determined to  jump, the firemen gathered in a circle  and stretched out their arms, and with  a final desperate effort Mrs. Bennett  wrenched herself from her husband's  grasp and with a piercing scream flung  herself into the arms of the waiting firemen five stories below. When she jumped from the ledge on which she and her  husband had stood, the flames- were  licking out the window behind her and  around her form. The inside of the  room was all in flames. Mrs. Bennett  struck the arms of the firemen, but her  weight caused them to sag, and the  woman struck the pavement. She was  terribly .burned about, the hody. She  was carried into the hotel by a fireman  and later was taken to the Bellevue hos-  os1  o^3sr_A_:D.A.

He was not seen afterwards, and it is believed that he was  burned or suffocated to death.  How the fire started in the hotel is a  mystery. Many of the police and fire  officials declare this forenoon that in  their opinion the blaze in the hotel was  independent of that at the armory. It  was established with a fair degree of  certainty today that the fire at the  Park avenue hotel originated at the  base of the north elevator shaft. From  this point it crept up to the fifth and  sixth floors and spread in every direction, completely gutting the upper floors.  The Park avenue hotel was built by A.  T. Stewart, who spent thee million dollars on its construction and furnishings.  MET DEATH BY LIVE WIRES  Storms Cause Much Damage  PHILADELPHIA, February 22.���The severe sleet and rain storm, which struck  this section during the early hours of yesterday, is probably the worst that has visited this city since the blizzard of 1SSS. Telegraph and telephone communication with  cutside points has been completely interrupted since early ��� yesterday afternoon.  The telegraph, telephone and electric light  companies are the heaviest sufferers. In  every part of the city broken wires are  dangling, making it dangerous for pedestrians. Upwards of a dozen.horses have  been killed by broken wires, heavily  charged with electricity falling upon them  and several persons sustained slight injuries.  NEW YORK, February 22.���Telegraph  poles carried down by the sleet burdened  vires, caused a^'delay of from one to five  hours in the passenger service of the Pennsylvania lino during the night between this  city and "Baltimore. The main trouble as  reported by passengers from the south,  is in the district between Chester, Pennsylvania, and Trenton, New Jersey. At the_  fc'rirer place the entire telephone, telegraph"  and electric light systems aro a total  wreck, and the town Is ln darkness. Trains  on the Philadelphia, Wilmington & Baltimore division are being run without the  aid ot the telegraph, necessitating slow  progress. The worst of the wreck among  the wires was between Bristol and Trenton, New Jersey. In the eleven miles between those two points more than 100 telegraph poles wero broken'with more in danger of falling. Half of these which fell  dropped across the track of the Pennsylvania railroad. Construction gangs were  kept busy clearing the wreckage away,  but all trains proceeded through that territory at a reduced speed. Telegraph companies are handling air messages to and  from Philadelphia by train.  The wire and train service from Baltimore to Washington and the south are in  fairly good shape.  Live wires killed one man in Jersey City  and dozens of horses were killed by the  same agency on suburban roads. Jersey  City is ankle deep in water, many cellars  are flooded and the fire alarm system has  been seriously Interfered with.  ^^^Qerman*"E6yalty in a Gale  I-IEW YORK, February 22.���Although no  word has been received of the Kron Prlnz  Wilhelm up to 10 o'clock, everything was  in readiness for prince Henry's reception  in spite of the storm. Admiral Evans'  squadron, lying off to Mortonsville, prepared to celebrate the national holiday  and also to assist In the reception of the  royal visitor, awoke after a tempestuous  night'to'find the sky overcast with dark  and threatening clouds and tho wind  shrieking through the rigging of tho ships.  No word had been received from the steamer, and even if she had then been within  a few miles of the harbor, the fact would  not have been known at the quarantine station or to the licet lying a few miles to the  northward, for there was not a telegraph  or telephone lino working In that part of  the Island.  Word lias been received here from Nantucket! that the wind is blowing sixty  miles an hour at that point and that up  to (! o'clock this morning the Kron Prinz  Wilhelm had not been seen.

Mail Killed at Blairmore  ��� His majesty's mail was.gone through  by a sneak thief In Blairmore on  Thursday morning and at least $47 contained in one of the registered letters,  was stolen. The mail sacks were taken  off the west-bound train as usual on  Thursday morning by the C. P. R. agent  and left in the station to be called for  some hours later by the mail carrier..  When the sacks were taken to the post-  office they appeared -to be all right, but  when the mail was emptied out to be  distributed, the letters -were found untied and the registered mail opened as  well as many unregistered letters. Examination showed that the sacks had  been cut open and then carefully pinned  up again. Only one registered letter  had contained money, some ?47, which  was of course taken.    -  Will Use American Jockey  LONDON, ..February 22.���W. K.

Mr. Newltt, of the firm of Brown & Co.,  clothiers, has opened up a branch of their  dry goods business In Ymlr.  W.  A.   McLean   has Just completed   the  erection   ot   a   bridge across   the   Salmon  river at Ymlr on  the wagon  road  to  the  Ymir mine.  A MHz. of this city, loft on the Crow's  Nest boat on Sunday morning for a three  or four months' holiday to his home in  Newfoundland.  A meeting of the Nelson gun club will be  held at the Hume hotel this evening at 8  o'clock to arrange for the snooting contests  for the coming summer.  The Epworth League of the Methodist  church will hold a literary evening at their  regular meeting tomorrow evening and will  have "An evening with Longfellow."  D. S. Stanley, blacksmith of this city, returned yesterday from Ymlr, where he has  completed the purchase of. a blacksmith  shep. The deal has been pending for some  time and was completed on Saturday.  At a private meeting of the members of  the Nelson socialistic league held yesterday afternoon In the Miners' Union hall, a  "weeding Out" process was gone through,  when the heads of the Martinltes were  guillotined into the party basket. It appears from what has leaked out, according  to the interpretation of the more radical  elpment of the association, the pledge of  the- club is so binding that no member of  the club has a right to vote in any other [  manner than the club dictates. This, according to some members, Is contrary to  their ideas of liberty of thought and action,  hence the revolt.  David B. Bogle, who at different times  has been connected with the press of Nelson and other provincial cities, has succeeded C. H. Lugrln as editor of the Colonist.  There will bo a box social at the residence  of Mrs. Traves, on Lake street, on Wednesday evening next. A program of music  has been prepared and refreshments will be  served.  A. Mackenzie, of this city, left on the International yesterday for Kaslo, where he  has procured a position with the K. & S.  railway company, and will be in charge of  the company's station at McGuigan, between Kaslo and Sandon.  The return of the cold weather attracted  quite a number of skaters to the lake yesterday. During the night the ice had  formed enough to bear them, and along the  shore was so thick that the steamer International had to use a barge to affect a  landing.  The contract for the erection of the new  boat house was let on Saturday last to  Mr. I'felffer for the sum of $1017. his tender  for the construction of the float was $115,  but It has been decided to let tho supplying  of tho logs to Mr. Shannon, who has agreed  to supply the same at the rate of 7 cents  per foot. There were five other tenders  from Messrs. Toye, Hepburn, Coxhead,  Burgess and Sayward, but the one accepted  was considerably less than any of the  others. The boat house will be a story and \  RAILWAY TIME TABLE  CANADIAN PACIFIC SYSTEM  LEAVE  7:15 a in.  Daily.

The proceeds will be  devoted to the erection of St. George's  memorial church at Rossland, which is being erected as the memorial.  The Nelson hockey players returned from  Rossland last evening quite exultant over  the glories and trophies they won. In their  match with the Sandon team, for the championship of British Columbia, Nelson won  with a score of 5 to 2.  The secretary of the Nelson boat club  is in receipt of a communication from the  Winnipeg rowing club, relative to their entering for the regatta, which will be held  in this city on the 25th and 26th of July,  who states that, in the event of their not  entering for any of the events in England  that they will be in attendance.  The bonspiel of the Kootenay Curling Association will open at Sandon today. The  ice is said to be in splendid condition and  tho following rinks from Nelson will represent the club from here: G. Stanley, D.  J. Robertson, A. Carrie and "VV. Richardson  (skip); J. Neelands, Dr. Armstrong, H. R.  Cameron and J. A. Turner (skip); G. Bell,  II. J. Hamilton, R. Robertson and G. C.  Hodge (skip).  Part of the curlers from the Winnipeg  bonspiel returned on Saturday evening,  Messrs. Rae, Bradley and Fox. They expressed themselves as delighted with the  ;trip-and=the=treatmont--the>"rocoived=fromi  the Winnipegers. They report the bonspiel  as one of the largest events of the kind  ever held in the city, and although they  did not succeed In winning any of the  trcphies or medals they won five out of the  ten games played. The other Nelson men  will arrive during the next few days.  The story of a very lively scrap, which  occurred in Slocan a few days ago, i.s to  hand, ln whicli a lady and a C. P. R. oilicial  had an encounter. The report has It that  a woman named May Clino, attacked  Gecrge T. Moir, the station that  place, with an umbrella and whip, striking  him several heavy blows on the head. A  lively bout wa.s the result for some minutes, which finally resulted In the woman  being arrested. She wa.s made to appear before magistrate Foley and the acting mayor, who committed her to stand her trial  at the next assizes In Nelson. Bail was  applied for and granted.  Sullivan Knocked Out  LOUISVILLE, February 22.���Terry McGovern defeated Dave Sullivan in the arena  of the Southern Athletic Club in 15 rounds  of as desperate fighting as was ever seen.  Frtm the first tap of the gong until the  end it was slap bang, hammer and tongs  nearly every second, both mon working  away with all the energy they possessed.  McGovern knowing that the light meant  his position in the front ranks' as a fighter, went after his man every second. In  a majority of the rounds he wa.s on the aggressive and Sullivan was forced to do  more defensive work than his opponent.  But he put up a wonderful Tight, and was  game to the core and lost the fight more  through a blunder of his own than because  he was knocked out. AVhen the crash  came, however, he was groggy and going  fast, Tlie chances are that he would not  have lasted many more rounds had he  risen to his feet before Fitzsimmons called  timo. In the fourth round Sullivan was at  his best. He forced the fighting, especially  in the last half and plainly had McGovern  going. The latter wa.s very unsteady as he  went to his corner and nothing but his  splendid recuperative powers enabled him  to come out in shape for the fifth round.  Tn the fifteenth McGovern succeeded in  knocking his man out.  Call up Telephone 33 if you want coal or  wood. Birch, fir and cedar. Prompt delivery. West Transfer Company.  MARTIN GIVES HIS VIEWS  On the Political Situation  Joseph Martin, the leader of the Liberal  forces ln the province, has given his opinion upon the present political situation. In  un interview on Friday Mr. Martin said:  ���'I think the government will be sustained  throughout the session. In fact l am sure  of it. There Is no legislation outlined in the  speech from the throne to which great objection should be raised, and there is none  in prospect now to which I would object.  I do not see where the benefit would come  In of defeating the government, and perhaps putting in oflice an opposition which  is even now divided against itself. There  is no difference between the government  and the present constituted opposition, and  Mr. McBride is not consistent in his objection to Mr. Dunsmuir. He deserted the  premier for the reason that he asked Mr.  Brown to be one of his cabinet, Mr. Brown  belonging to opposition as it was then  formed. Now he takes into his advisory  council Smith Curtis, who was also a member of the same opposition.  "What do I think of ihe present opposition as lt came to light in the division yesterday? It is absurd, simply absurd. They  are as far as I can see all scramblers for  office, and if they got into power there  would be no peace unless there was an office for each and every one. Unless the constitution could be changed to allow a portfolio for each, there would be constant  ti cubic.  "I do not know whether or not I will support the government all the session, but if  the legislation to be introduced does not  depart radically from the outline in the address, it is probable I will. One thing I will  insist upon and that will be a redistribution measure. I will not consent to anything in the way of a commission being appointed, but will adhere to the statement  I made while the convention was in  session."  Public School Report  In the annual report of the superintendent of education for the year 1900-  1901, it is said that the total enrollment  during the year was 23,615, an increase  for the year of 2084.
