 t&^iruiu-^t.'r���mig*.-*-;' j  j-r-'-rara^^  ESABLISHED  1892  TUESDAY  MORNING,  FEBKUAEY  18  1902  DAILY EDITION  YflTE WAS CLOSE  DR, McLENNAN APPOINTED HEALTH OFFICER  CITY COUNCIL DECIDES TO  SUBMIT A LOAN BY-LAW TO  BAISE $35,000  in the city during the month of July, and  the granting oC financial support to It in  preference to the customary Dominion Day  celebration was read.  On motion ol" aldermen Morrison and  Selous it wa.s agreed, to meet tho request  of the petitioners.  Alderman Scanlan asked the mayor if  there had not been a number of applications for the position of driver in the fire  brigade. The mayor replied that two applications had been received, but as there  had been no complaints against the present  driver he did not think it necessary to  consider them.  It is the intention of the board to meet  semi-monthly, in tho future instead of  weekly.  SEVERE STORM IN THE EAST  The appointment of Dr. McLennan, as  successor to Dr. LaBau as medical health  ollicer was the most important action  taken by the city council at its adjourned  meeting lost evening. There were three applications for the position: Dr. McLennan,  Dr. E. C. Arthur, and Dr. XX. J. Hawkey.  The appointment was by ballot and the  votes were divided between the first two,  Dr. McLennan receiving a majority of one  in  the full vote of seven.  The matter of the promised investigation  into the causes leading up to the dismissal  by the former council of chief Lillie, who  was reappointed by the present council,  was not mentioned, nor the clauses of the  report of the board of works, which were  referred back to the committee.  Tenders for the supply of lumber for  sidewalks were opened: J. A. Sayward &  Co., $10 per m. delivered and $9.20 in the  yard; Nelson Saw & Planing Mills, $9.25  delivered and $S.7*3 at the yard; .Porto Rico  Lumber Company, $9.75 delivered and $S.75  at the Mountain  station.  On motion of alderman Morrison and Irving it was agreed that the tender of the  Nolson Saw & Planing Mill be accepted.  The report of the -finance committee was  received, which was as follows:  i.l) That the claim of James Hubbard and  wife, for compensation against the cily,  re. the destruction of their shack, be not  entertained.  11 was explained that this was the advice  of the city solicitor, and the council therefore adopte-1 the recommendation.  (2) That, the city solicitor be remunerated  by salary, and that the conditions of his  appointment be the same as those accepted  in 1S99.  Alderman Scanlan suggested that the  agreement' of tho yeai\be produced, which  ���was done and read by the city clerk, lt  provided that the salary would be $1000  per year, lt was shown that the change  from this arrangement had been made to  save costs, but, as during the past year the  costs had considerably exceeded the amount stipulated in the above agreement,  it was thought better to return to It. The  clause was allowed to stand.  (3) That tenders for horseshoeing, black-  smithing and the supplying oC drugs to the  city be called for.  Alderman Hamilton, as chairman, explained that owing to the charges in these  departments the recommendations aimed at  securing their reduction. The recommendation was adopted.  .(���!) That the collector be instructed to  ���press the payment of all outstanding accounts. It was agreed lo.  (5) That payment be made of the following accounts: P. E. Wilson re. legal expenses, $178, and W.' A.  Macdonald, $15S.50.  During the discussion it was revealed  that the above expenses had been incurred,  in the proceedings which had been taken  against the late medical health officer. Considerable difference of opinion arose as to  whether the council was responsible.  Alderman Scanlan claimed that it was a  ""sl5rloiis"matter=and^beforo-agreeing^to^nsjLrJ  sumo responsibility, they should know  where it stood. He said he would like to  have the opinion of the city solicitor In  writing before agreeing to the payment.  The mayor explained that at the lime  proceedings wore taken tho six aldermen  had agred to stand by their city official,  and although the present council might see  fit to repudiate the debt, the city would be  compelled lo pay if the matter wa.s taken  to the court. After some further discussion  il was agreed to leave the matter over to  a suhscfiueiU meeting.  ((i) "Your committee havo gone through  and considered the estimates prepared by  tho city clerk of the revenue and expenditure for the current year, and they report  thai, approximately, a rate of 17V& mills on  the dollar on lands, and 2V*. mills on the  dollar on 50 per cent of the assessed value  of Improvements, will be required to pay  tho interest and provide sinking fund for  debenture debt; that a general rate of f>  mills ii the doll-ir and a school rate of 2  mills on the dollar will require to be levied  on lands to pay the current expenses of the  board of school trustees for this year, and  that the sum of $35,000 be raised by the issue of debentures, to repay the amount  paid out of current revenue on account of  sewer, waterworks and electric light construction, and new high school and city  office buildings.  The mayor explained that the council  was not in a position at the present time  to make a rate, as the city's assessment  had not yet been completed.  Alderman Selous objected to the arrangement whereby the rates for education were  confined to the land. He claimed that there  wore cases where men had small houses  and large families, who were receiving the  educational benefits without rendering any  compensation. He claimed that fully 33  per cent of the valuable property on Baker  street, was, according to the arrangement  made, bearing the bulk of tho cost of education. The clause was allowed to stand.  (i) Provided that tho police department  should be employed to collect the dog  taxes, traders' licenses and the arrears of  taxes. This was allowed to stand.  <S)   That,  a   further   supply   of  dog   tags  be  provided,   and   that  the account of   W*.  <">.  Gillett for STiSS,  and of J.  A.  Sayward  for the sum of $00.CO be paid, was approved, j  Tho petition from the boat club contain- !  ing   tho   signatures   of  172  petitioners,   re- '  questing the approval of the council of the  regatta  of   the   North  Pacific  Association  of Amateur Oarsmen, which will be held  Considerable Damage Reported  .  WASHINGTON, February 17���The severe  storm of this morning oft tho New Jersey  coast has advanced to southeastern Massachusetts, increasing to almost hurricane  force. Heavy snow and high winds have  prevailed along the New Jersey coast, and  thence northward to the-Canadian Maritime provinces. Heavy snow has also fallen  in eastern Pennsylvania and eastern New  York, and light snow in the lower lake region and the upper Ohio valley. Rain continues on the Pacific coast and northern  plateau. The temperature continues to rise  along the Gulf Coast. There has been a  slight fall in north Texas, Oklahoma and  over the central plateau region. In the  Rocky mountain region and westward the  temperature continues above the average,  in some places as much as 20 degrees. The  storm will move northward during the  night, and will probably reach Nova Scotia  by morning. Winds of hurricane force are  probable on the New England coast tonight, diminishing somewhat Tuesday.  NEW YORK, February 17.���New York  City has borne the brunt of the fiercest  snow storm that has struck this section of  the country since JSSS: Beginning soon after midnight the storm increased rapidly  in intensity, the rising force of the gale  piling up the snow in great drifts. Suburban traffic and communication between  Manhattan and Brooklyn was subject to  long delays, and shipping generally was  almost at a standstill. A number of steamers are supposed to bo off ��� Sandy Hook  waiting for the storm to abate before attempting to enter port. Tonight the local  weather bureau reports that the worst of  the snow fall which began to abate in the  afternoon, is probably over. The fall up to  3 o'clock this afternoon was nine inches.  The congestion of traffic on the Manhattan  street car lines was severe during the  morning. Many of the avenues were  blocked with long car lines. On Broadway  wheel traffis was confined to the narrow  limes betwen high snow hills, and along  these cabs, trucks and cars crawled at a  slow pace. On the elevated lines there was  considerable delay in the early hours, but  by evening, the rush hours, all trains were  running on time. In the shopping district  the blockade was so complete that several  of the department stores decided to close  their stores at 4 o'clock.  NEAV HAVEN, February. 17. ��� Eight  inches of snow had fallen up to 6 o'clock  this evening, according to the measurement  of the weather observer. It is the heaviest  snow fall of the winter, snow was piled into  drifts by a wind of a velocity of 30. miles  an hour, and has greatly delayed traffic all  over the state. Connecticut sound ports are  filled with vessels waiting the passing of  the gale.  TROY,    New    York,    February   17.���The  storm raged fiercely here all  day and tonights delaying-all-car-ser-vlce,aSteam^anda  electric service. At 9 p. m. over a foot of  snow had fallen.  POUGHKEEPS1E, February 17. ��� The  storm which began this morning was accompanied by a strong northwest wind and  by noon had tied up the Wappingers trolley, and a little later the trolley lines- in  the city. Central New England & Pough-  keepsle, and eastern trains, were delayed  by the conditions prevailing.  PLATTSl'tURG, February 17���The reports  received here tonight show that at least  the eastern portion of northern New York  Is again swept by a blizzard, the third  large one since January 1st. About six  inches of snow had fallen here, nnd a  strong wind i.s drifting It badly on the  roads and railways. The strength of the  storm now raging indicates that all tho  railroads in this -vicinity, except the main  line of the Delaware &. Hudson, will have  difficulty in moving trains tomorrow.  HALIFAX, February 17.���This city is enveloped in a blizzard tonight. Telephone  and electric wires are all down, the city is  in darkness and the stores are closed.  Great waves are breaking over wharves,  and damage to shipping will be large.  and recited the history of that trouble.  It appears that in June, 1900, he was admitted to the naval hospital at Yokohama,  Japan, when, according to the records,  ho suffered from weakness of the eyes and  retinus, which infirmities it was stated had  been contracted while on duty In repairing ships at Hong Kong. In January, 1902,  he was examined by a retiring board,  which decided that his incapacity was such  as to justify his retirement. The message  concludes as follows: "In consideration of  the foregoing, but especially by the valuable service rendered by Mr. Hobson in the  sinking of the Merrimac, in the harbor of  Santiago during the recent war with Spain,  I recommend the enactment of a suitable  measure for his retirement."  HUBBY HAS A STEADY JGB  Bat Ma Has the Dough  TOLEDO, February 17. ��� Mrs. Charles  Purdy has returned to Toledo from the  Klonwlke with a fortune. During her four  years residence in the north, besides keeping a boarding house and hotel, she bought  and sold claims aggregating millions in  value, and When she finally came away it  was with $1,000,000. Mrs. Purdy and her husband started west nearly ten years ago. It  is said that at Vancouver they disagreed  about going further, the husband returned  to Tacoma, where he is now said to be a  molorman for a street car company. Mrs.  Purdy went on to Alaska and from all accounts prospered. Besides looking after her  business interests she ran a ho"spital,  where hundreds of destitute miners were  admitted free of charge. One of her lucky  strikes was a third interest she bought In  a claim for a few hundred dollars, and  when she sold out eight months later her  net profits were $200,000. She still has large  interests in the Klondike and holds partnership interest in half a. dozen properties.  Gambling in Bands  LONDON, February 17.���Rands were still  the center of interest as well as the center  of activity during the last week for those  who were inclined to take a pessimistic  view of tlie outlook on the stock exchange.  The settlement was an arduous task, especially In the mining section, where the  accounts of several over rash speculators  were suspended. This checked, but it did  not stop the gambling now going on in  South Africas. The magnitude of recent  dealings is indicated by the fact that of  eiglit mining stocks alone, 33,000,000 shares  passed through the clearing house. One  effect of the difficult settlement was to prevent the development of much new business, still the general tone is good and the  outlook cheery, at least for the professionals. The rates of discount have been steady  and the accumulation of big balances by  the government .Is..making���money, scarce  on the open market. However, the low discount rates at Berlin and Vienna promise  to send considerable continental money  here, so London can look with equanamity  at the close prospect of gold being shipped  to New York.  The Anglo-Japanese treaty has been  warmly received in financial circles and  foreign securities generally were higher  in consequence. Americans improved somewhat, principally the transcontinental railroad lines. Considerable interest is manifested In the New York traction situation  and many persons are awaiting to see that  situation elucidated before making investments.  HARD ON OLD MEN  THEIR  INSURANCE   WILL  BE INCREASED  ARE DYING  TOO PAST  TO  SUIT  THB EXECUTIVE OF  THE A. O.jU. W.  Lynched a Negro Minstrel  NEW MADRID, Missouri, February 17.���  A mob of masked men overpowered the  jailer and took a negro, Louis Wright, a  short distance from the town last night  and hanged him. Richard and Prlngles negro minstrels gave an entertainment here  Saturday night, when an altercation arose  between ono of the musicians and some one  in the audience. The whites made an onslaught on the musician and one of the  negroes on the stage began to shoot. Several persons in the audience were hit, but  no one wa.s seriously hurt, All the negroes  were put in jail and in the preliminary  examination the name of the one who had  done the shooting was discovered. He was  lynched and the others will be released.  Several of the prisoners were badly beaten.  Captain Hobson is Retired  WASHINGTON, February 17.���The president today sent a message to the senate  recommending the retirement of naval constructor Richmond P. Hobson, and in accordance with this recommendation, senator Galliher immediately introduced a bill  providing for Hobson's transfer to the retired list. In his message tho president  gives a.s his reason, the trouble that Mr.  Hobson  has had  since 1900  with his eyes  The U. S. Beal Estate Deal  WASHINGTON, February 17.���Today, In  a little more than an hour's time, the sen-  atee in executive session disposed of the  treaty with Denmark, ceding to the United  Slates for a consideration of $5,000,000 the  islands'of"Str^Thomas,-St.���John=-and-St.-  Croix, composing the group of the Antilles,  known as the Danish West Indies, and lying just east of Porto Rico, and thus, so  far as this country is concerned, consummated a transaction which has been under consideration intermittently since the  administration of president Lincoln.  Serious Ending of a Fight  OTTAWA, February 17.���An unusual ending to a shantyman's row is reported from  a camp near Sudbury. Xavler Genest, was  known as the dandy of the camp, and he  was the butt for the jokes of all the choppers. Some days ago he became angry and  struck one of his tormentors. A fight ensued, in which Genest's tie was grabbed by  the other man and tightened about his  neck until Genest was almost strangled before he was rescued. Ho was unconscious  for some time.  Minority Cable Beport  WASHINGTON, February 17.���The minority report on the Pacific cable bill which  was filed today dissents from the view that  the government should build the cable, and  states that a private concern, the Commercial Cable Company, has already contracted for a cable to Hawaii for November  next, intending to extend the line to the  Philippines within two years after.  Senate Ratifies the Treaty  WASHINGTON, February 17���The senate,  in executive session, today ratified the  treaty between the United States and Great  Britain extending for twelve months from  July 23rd, 1901, the time in which the British  colonies or foreign possessions may give  their adhesion to the convention, signed  March 2nd, 1899, for the tenure and disposition of real and personal property.  Caynses for South Africa  SALT LAKE, February 17.���Three thousand western horses, known as "cayuses,"  gathered from tho ranges of the inter-  mountain states, are to be shipped to South  Africa for use in the British army. They  have been concentrated in corralls In this  city and at Grand Junction, Colorado.  with the Kron Prlnz Wilhelm, which is  bearing prince Henry and his suite to  New York up to 9 a. m. today, when the  steamer was about 140 miles west of  the Lizard. A powerful Marconi station  at Mullion, Cornwall, was continuing to  dispatch wireless telegrams toward the  Kron Prinz Wilhelm, but the distance  covered will not be known until the  steamer's arrival on the other side of  the Atlantic, as she is not equipped  with an apparatus powerful enough to  enable her to reply.  Chinese Minister Dead  ST.   PETERSBURG,   February   17.���  Yang Yu, the Chinese minister to Russia, died here today after a short illness.  TORONTO, February 17.J���The executive of the grand lodge A. O. U. W. met  here today, preparatory to the annual  convention which opens on Wednesday.  The convention will likely order increased rates in the insurance department.  If adopted members over 40 years will  have rates increased 25 per cent, with  other ages increasing proportionately.  Prominent members in discussing the  situation explain that the order has bee.i  in existence thirty-five years, and the  old members are beginning to die off  more rapidly, and in consequence the  demands on funds have largely increased. r  WHATTHE PURCHASE MEANS  Islands Have Great Value  WASHINGTON, February 16.���In the  confidential report, of the committee on  foreign relations regarding the cession  of Danish islands in the West Indies,  the value of the islands to the United  States is shown. In view of the Isthmian canal and European settlement in  South America, every additional acquisition by the United States in the West  Indies is of value. One of the statements in the report displaying the important acquisitions of the islands is  as follows:  "Porto Rico is densely populated. Its  roads are poor. It has- a long coast line  with no ports for large vessels.- It is  consequently very difficult of defense.  San Juan is the only harbor capable of  fortification and this is only suitable for  vessels of light draught." \  Major Glassford of the signal corps,'  -in-writing of the military- advantages  at St, Thomas, has stated:  "The island of St. Thomas offers conditions suitable for developing a first-  class, military outpost. This island possesses all the natural advantages, enabling it to be converted into a second  Gibraltar. * *** * * * * * * "  The report states that the Danish  West Indies, together with Porto Rico,  are of great importance in connection  with the American isthmus, where a  canal will be constructed between the  Atlantic and Pacific. A note from the  state department in connection with  two clauses of the treaty, detailing the  obligations assumed by the American  government in purchasing the islands,  shows that they are not of a serious or  expensive nature.  Tlie St. Thomas Floating Company is  to secure the enjoyment of its exclusive  rights to make changes, regulations, etc.,  until 1918. This company is not subsidized by theJDanish government, and,  according^tb^the-^-navy-^ department,-  be of use and practical advantage to  our navy. The present pecuniary obligations of the Danish government to the  West India and Panama Telegraph Company, which is an English concern, is a  subsidy lately granted to the company  for five years until January 1st, 1905,  of $4000 a year. Services for the government are performed at schedule rates.  The concession holds only during the  life of the grant.  The Danish government assumes all  obligations of whatever character growing out of its relation to the St. Croix  Sugar Company, and it is the purpose of  that company to wind up its affairs.  Peddler Was Not Kaufman  VANCOUVER, February 17.���[Special  to The Tribune.]���The man from Victoria and Nanaimo, supposed to be murderer Kauffman, of San Francisco, was  arrested here today, having returned  from up the line. He turns out to be  an ordinary tramp, with a crippled  hand, and has been peddling lead pencils for a living. He resembles Kuatt-  man in general appearance, but not in  detail description. He has been in local  Coast cities for several months.  R. Thompson, a fisheman oif the  steamer Capilano, was taken to the hospital today. While on the last trip the  hoisting gear caught him by the hand  and he was yanked away to the topmast with the hook through one thumb.  Greenwood's Happenings  GREENWOOD, February 17.���[Special  to The Tribune.]���The weather for this  time of the year is extremely mild. The  warm rain is causing the snow to rapidly disappear from the valleys, whilst  the mountain roads are soft and very  heavy  for travelling.

CUBA MAY BECOME A STATE  Further Reductions Asked  OTTAWA, February 17.���A deputation  from tho Canadian Press Association was  hero today to urge the minister of finance to further reduce the duty on paper.  May Control Montana Mines  BUTTE, Montana, February 18.���It is  stated on good authority that the big  copper war between F. Augustus Heinze  and the Amalgamated Copper Company  is nearer settlement today than it has  ever been, and when the settlement is  finally perfected Heinze will be general  manager of the Amalgamated company.  The information comes from a reliable  source in New York.  It is stated that Amalgamated and  Standard oil people have come to the  conclusion that it is better to make use  of Heinze's remarkable ability and popularity in Montana than to continue the  fight against him in an effort to eliminate him from the copper question.  Effort was made tonight, to get a  statement from.Heinze, but he could not  be seen. One of his close associates,  however, said:  "I do not know what truth there is in  the latest report, but it is certain that  if there is ever a settlement it will be  made on just those conditions and the  Amalgamated company will come to  Heinze instead of Heinze going to them."  When negotiations were first opened  with Heinze for settlement of the litigation several years ago, his first demand  was, before talking"about price, that he  was placed in charge of the mines of the  consolidated interests in Montana. He  declined to be eliminated from the situation. The Standard oil people would  not consider that proposition from  Heinze and all subsequent negotiations  fell through. Since then Heinze's properties have been increasing in value  and his victories over the Amalgamated  in the courts and in politics have increased his own value to such a degree  that'it is claimed the Amalgamated company is.ready to meet his terms.  Will Cross the Sea  NEW YORK, February 17,^-M. Santos  Dumont is already at work, preparing  his plans for the rebuilding of his airship wrecked on his last attempt to  cross the Mediterranean, says a dispatch  from Monaco. Efforts to grapple his  motor, the sinking of which was the  most serious loss of the disastrous attempt, have all failed, and he has ordered a new and more powerful one.  That he will ultimately cross the sea  is regarded here as a certainty, for  only his death will stop him. Though  he was near death from drowning, from  being smctheied in the silken folds of  his collapsed balloon and from being  burned to death by the igniting of the  oil he uses foi fuel, his peril seems to  have made thb least possible impression  on him. The peril to which he was expos*-') and the narrowness of his escape  he dismisses with a shrug of his shoul-  ���d.ei*s.=but-on..the_subjgct_of the loss of  his motor and the delay of his^plans"  caused by that misfortune he is desperately eloquent.  Counig Got the Decision  BUFFALO, February 17.���Referee McBride stopped the bout between Tom  Couhig, of Dunkirk, and Curley Supples,  of Buffalo, before the International Athletic club at Fort Erie, after 30 seconds  fighting in the 17th round, and gave the  decision in favor of Couhig. Supples had  the better of the fight up to the 13th  round, when Couhig put a hard left to  the jaw and right to the stomach, sending Supples to his knees. Couhig continued to play for the stomach with  hard rights in the succeeding rounds,  and when Supples came up for the 17th  round it was evident that he was in  great distress. Couhig planted a hard  left on the jaw and a right to the stomach. Supples clinched and refused to  break. The referee then stopped the  fight aud declared Couhig the kinner.  Castro Fighting Indians  PANAMA, February 17.���A government soldier who was a prisoner in the  camp of the Liberal general Herrera  made his escape and arrived here yesterday. He reported that last week an  Indian chief named Lorenzo attacked  the government forces of general Castro at _ Agua Dulce and was defeated.  Reinforced by 800 men, sent by general  Hererra, Lorenzo made another attack  on Castro's force and was again repulsed.

An adjournment was taken at 1  Invited to Join the Union  WASHINGTON, February 16.���Representative Newlands of Nevada, ��� of the  ways and means committee, who was the  author of the resolution, annexing Hawaii, has introduced a joint resolution  inviting the republic of Cuba to become  a part of the United States, first as a  territory and then as a state of the  union, to be called the state of Cuba, and  also authorizing a 25 per cent reduction  of duty in the present crop of Cuban  sugar, in consideration of Cuba's granting preferential rates to the United  States. The resolution confines the 25  per cent reduction of duties to the period prior to January 1st, 1903. The provision as to annexation is as follows:  "That meantime the republic of Cuba  is invited to become a part of the United  States of America and her people to become citizens of the United States, with  the assurance that Cuba will be entitled  at first to a territorial form of government under the constitution and laws  of the United States, with a delegate in  congress to represent her people, and  that ultimate statehood will be granted  when, in the judgment of congress, it is  advisable to admit Cuba, including such  other West.;. India islands belonging to  the United States as may be deemed advisable, as a single state in the union  to be called the state of Cuba."  Mr. Newlands, in explanation of his  resolution .said: ,������.���--..���'..'.  . "All those who have appeared to voice  Cuba's needs and requirement have H-  dlcated that an invitation-to Cuba of annexation would be accepted. The Cuban  congress will meet in February, a Cuban  eovernment will be organized and the  United States will then leave the government and control of the islands to Its  people. Cuba will then be in a position  to express her will, and it is only necessary to tide over the present emergency by a temporary measure, such as  I have introduced. By coming Into our  political union Cuba will secure immediately the highest degree of freedom and  with it.'a large market for varied products."

PARIS, February 17.���Dr. Leyds, the  European agent of the Boers, who is  now in this city, was questioned by the  Associated Press correspondent today  regarding the object of the mission to  the United States of the Boer delegates,  Messrs Wessels and Wolmarins, who  sailed for New York from Boulogne on  February 14th, on the steamer Rotterdam. He replied that they were merely  going to America in response. to invitations* from American pro-Boers, with  the view of reaching an arrangement  for the distribution, of funds and other  assistance contributed by people of the  United States toward the-* Boer cause.

'H"H-H��H"H"M"i-  Assuming that no materiai change is  made this year in the assessed value of  Nelson realty and improvements, the  tax rate upon lands will be;24'l-2 mills,  and 2 1-2 per cent upon 50 per cent of  the assessed value of improvements. Of  this rate it is estimated that 17 1-2 mills  of the rate upon lands, and the 2 1-2  mills upon fifty per cent of the assessed  Value of improvements, will, be required  to meet interest and sinking fund  charges upon the city's debenture debt.  The remainder of the tax upon lands is  required for public school' maintenance.  By the terms of the municipal act, how-,  ever, the council is restricted in Its rate  for school purposes to two mills. In  the case of Nelson this would be insufficient, so there will be a school rate of  good shape, and complaints with respect  to the service are met with the excuse  that it is as good as can be got out of  the rolling stock.    Whether the recent  unsatisfactory showing  is  due  to  the  management of the government road, or  whether it can be traced'to the circumstance that the business offering by the  districts tffrough whicn the road passes  'is insufficient, to pay operating expenses,  are questions requiring local knowledge  in order to pass upon them; but upon  its face the showing is .certainly discouraging to the advocates of government railroads.   According to the government report the total-out-ay chargeable to capital account on the government-lines of railway, is now ?63,975,2fa*l,  so that in addition- to the deficit of ?525,-  6701 in operating expenses last year it  , is necessary to add close upon $2,000,000  for interest charges, in oi*der to arrive  at any approximate idea as to what it  costs the Dominion for indulging in the  luxury of a state-owned and operated  railway. , By .way of comparison it Is  interesting to note that during the same  period the Canadian railways operated  by private^ corporations earned twenty-  four7 million, dollars.   Their gross, earnings were .$78,667,030, and the working  expenses $53,803,889,  leaving their net  earnings' at' slightly  over ' $24,000,000.  This shows , their working .expenses'"to  have been a little over 67 per cent' of  their gross earnings, and also that their  MORLEY & LAING  B00KSELLEES AND STATIOHEES  BAKEK STJIRBT. NELSON. B. O.

In  1879  he  was   made   British   embassador   to  St.  Petersburg; was transferred to Constantinople in 1881 and in 1882 he proceeded  to Egypt to settle matters there for the  British government and was mainly instrumental in giving Great Britain the  control now exercised in Egypt by that  power.   In 1884 he was appointed viceroy of India;   in   18S8   embassador   at  Rome, and in that year   he   was   also  made marquis of Dufferin and Ava.   In  1891 he rounded out his political career  as embassador at Paris. He was a strong  light in  literature also;   he was  made  president of the Royal Geographical Society in 1878; in the same year Harvard  conferred the degree of L. L. D. upon  him, and in 1879 Oxford gave him the  degree of D. C. L.. although he did not  remain long enough at Oxford to graduate.    His age was not great, as British statesmen average, but it was full of  activity in  different   climes,   and   his  career entailed   great   and   heavy  responsibility, in the management of which  he reaped many triumphs, honors and  rewards.   He was an illustrious servant  of his country;  his gift of persuasion  and magnetic personality were such that  he seldom failed to win his cause, no  matter what th'e seeming, difficulty.   He  put'off his armor  after a  full  life  of  great deeds,'that earned him fame and  grateful remembrance from his countrymen.

This tax rate of 24 1-2  mills, however, will not enable the council to reduce its overdraft, and to meet  the requirements  in  this respect it is  proposed to ask the sanction of the ratepayers to the issue of $35,000 worth of  debentures.   This is the amount which  the council  estimates   has  been  taken  from the current revenue account from  time to time to meet what should have  been capital account expenditures upon  sewer   construction,    waterworks   construction, electric light construction and  high school and other civic buildings, as  well   as   similar   expenditures   contemplated.   The  issuance  of  these  debentures  will   relieve  the   present  council  of close upo'n   $6000   for   high    school  building, meet the demand for the addition to the city offices, retire the city  overdraft by the  repayment from  the  several  debenture  accounts,  and  leave  the council a few thousand dollars for  such improvements as may be decided  upon.  There  must  have, been   considerable  merit   in   The    Tribune's    suggestion,  made   some: weeks   ago, . that   Nelson  should forego its usual "Dominion Day  celebration this year,and'devote its energies to making a success of the regatta  of the North Pacific Association of Amateur Oarsmen.    The matter came  before the city council last evening in the  form of a petition, in which the regatta's  claim for recognition was set out and  a prayer, made for financial assistance^  1a=ffd~tnTT":Mncil=uhatn^  get in line with public opinion upon the  question.    In consequence there will be  no Dominion Day celebration this year  and; the executive of the Nelson Boat  club was given permission to tap the  finance committee for as much as they  can; get in the way of financial assistance.     As    the   city    has   never   got  through with the usual Dominion Day  affair short of one thousand dollars it  is not unlikely that the regatta management will  be able to secure assistance to a like extent.  The advocates of government railways  will not find any pleasant reading in  the report of the Dominion railway department, covering the operation of Canadian railways during   the   last   fiscal  year.    It shows that during the period  under review the railway line operated  by the federal government lost upon operation   account   $525,670.     The   gross  earnings of the government line were  $5,213,381, an increase of $439,219 over  those of the previous year, but fortunately or unfortunately as one may be  inclined to view it,  the  operating  expenses increased  two dollars and fifty  cents for every dollar's increase in the  earnings of the system.   In addition to  the   deficit on  operating expenses the  Dominion was also called upon to make  expenditures aggregating $3,652,313 upon  capital account.   But even this amount  was not sufficient to  put  the  road  in  Alderman Selous' views on the incidence of taxation will scarcely commend  themselves to the ratepayers of the city  as a whole. The west ward alderman  ,does not like the suggestion that the  tax rate for school purposes should be  levied upon lands only, to the exclusion  of improvements. He says the effect of  such an arrangement will be that the  valuable property on Baker street will  be called upon to pay one-third, of the  school expenditures, while the resident  with small landed interests and a large  family will practically escape. Alderman Selous should advocate a head tax  or a birth tax for school purposes.  The London quotation for silver keeps  bol." If annexation were brought about  the English-speaking states would be  "the supreme custodians of the waterways of the world capable by their flat  of blockading into submission any European state contemplating an appeal  to the arbitrament of war." We can  climbing up, and at the present rate of all agree with Mr. Stead that it would   ... ...n, u��� i,,,-. .. ���<���..���.. ��������� ��� ���-�����,��� ! be possible for   Great  Britain   and  the  ���  Reviewed by W, F. McLean  We have thought they were ail dead,  but1 we have perhaps been a little previous in forming our opinion. A specimen of the species annexationist, supposed to have become extinct, has been,  found. And, strange to say, it is not on  this continent  where  he  was  located,  ,but|in the British Isles. The type is the  one!quite familiar to us in Canada. The  newily-found specimen has all the characteristics of the species as it flourished  here in its heyday 15 years ago.- W. T.  Stead has come out in the role essayed  by pur unfortunate friend, Erastus Wiman. Wiman brought the annexation  banner from New York, and first unfurled it on the banks of Dufferin lake,  in the centre of a flourishing agricultural  section of this province. We all know  the ��� outcome of that propaganda. The,  issue is dead beyond resuscitation, and  the ioriginators of the project have retired into perpetual oblivion and obscurity.    We could hardly believe our  senses when   we   became   apprised  the  other day that the fad which had run its  -lamentable-=coiu-se-"ln"=Canada"*had!-been"  taken up by a so-called Englishman and  advocated  by him  in the heart of the  ^empire.    In introducing his annexation  scheme to the people of Great Britain,  W. T. Stead has very closely paralleled  the, method   adopted    by   Mr.    Wiman  when he sought to convert the people  of  Canada.    Wiman  quoted  figures  to  prove  how wonderfully great the Americans were and to show how foolish  Canadians were not to throw in their lot  with  them.    Stead  flies  tlie stars and  stripes on the cover of his pamphlet, and"  the reader does not get more than a few  pages into tho work   before  he   is  reminded of the immensity of the United  States and warned that if the British  empire does not move in the direction  of annexation and   move  quickly   "the  disintegration   of our  empire  and  our  definite displacement from the position  of commercial and financial primacy is  only a matter   of   a   short   time."   Mr.  Stead's  project of annexation involves  some kind of extension of the  United  States constitution  in  virtue of which  Great Britain could  become a member  of the English-speaking United  States.  Monarchy is to give way to Republicanism; although   Mr    Stead   is   generous j signed up t0 12 0-clock noon   Monday  I  enough to suggest that "the crown might I --������-������.���_,.,, 0Atr. - ��� ,,,���   .    ,  .

Despite these  figures  as  to population  and trade that Mr. Stead produces, Great  Britain has stood, the storms of a thousand years.    We in Canada are able to  pass an unbiased judgment on the merits of the   constitution   of   the   United  States.    We   know  that   Great  Britain  has domestic troubles of her own, but  they  are  neither   more  numerous   nor  more serious than the domestic problems  that confront our neighbors.   No prominent citizen of the'United States would  have the assurance to suggest that Great  Britain should assume the servile role  that is assigned her by a hair-brained  British   journalist      However,   W.   T.  Stead speaks only for himself, and we  are perhaps giving him too much importance to his vaporings.   We believe in  maintaining the   harmony  of  the  two  branches of the English-speaking people as far as this can be done consistent  with our own self respect, and national  integrity.     Such   harmony   is   possible  without the sacrifice; of its nationality  by any state or country.   Great Britain  is today doing noble work in the federation of the empire.    She is engaged in  the formation of a constitution.that will  permit of a federation between differently constituted and widely separated  countries and peoples.   This constitution  might easily be made wide enough to  include the United States, but the inclusion of the United States is by no  means an essential of the Anglo-Saxon  unity.    It is difficult enough to devise  a constitution that will cover the federation of the different parts of the British empire.    Much more difficult would  be the drawing up of a constitution that  would provide^, for the amalgamation of  Great Britain   and the : United   States.  The   English-speaking   peoples   of   the.  word may, and probably will, finally be  wield  together in . some way.  but the  Briton  who   suggests   that   the   union  should be effected by the effacement of  Great  Britain   is  a   contemptible  Poltroon. . The  United  States  would  never  ^onsent_t.o^i)ay^it.^W.=T-.-Stead-likes=-to=  hear himself talk, but we imagine the  people of Great Britain will regard him  no more seriously than do the people  of Canada.  advocates expect. Indeed, a really simple scheme of phonetic spelling will be  an unprecedented phenomenon in this  world. The Italians have tried it, and  (so far) failed; the most successful have,  probably been the Russians, Poles,  Czechs and Magyars���but at the expense of what a panopoly of alphabet  and accents! Think of the three silent  "accent letters" in Russia (well-night  ithe despair of lexicographers), and of  the Czech and Hungarian system of accents, beside which the French is mere  child's'play, Consider again, as has often  been pointed out, that, no matter how  simple and perfect a system of phonetic  spelling may be, its application is practically impossible where there is no universally recognized standard of proun-  ciation. Is a Philadelphian to read  "Bahsket," and call it "Bas-k't"? How  is Vvase" to be spelt phonetically?  As for such monstrosities as "thogh"  (for "though"),    Why not "tho," tout  court?    Is the u more, superflous than  the gh.    Or   is   u   to   be   reserved   for  "tugh"?    If so,  how would you  spell  "cough"?   Perhaps, "cawgh."   The tro-  ble with the   spelling   reform   is   that  nothing yet has been suggested that is  easier than the old way.   I do not say  that the old way is good; only no newer  one seems any   better.     If   some   one  would   only  preach   an  historic-etymological spelling reform in English, that  might lead  to something worth  while  from another point of view.    Think of  the luxury   of   putting   two   m's   into  "amount"���so  that you  could  see the.  Latin through it!    But, though people  enough rail at our present English spelling for not being uniformly historical  and etymological, no one seems to take  it into his head to propose making it so.

WAS AN ASSASSIN BY TRADE  Long Criminal Career  CHEYENNE, Wyoming, February 16.���  Assasination at $G0O per head is said to be  the. ghastly trade of Tom Horn of Iron  Mountain, who is now in jail, and will next'  May be brought to trial in the Laramie  county district court to answer for one  at least of his self-confessed crimes.  ���Though he is believed to have been the  murderer of more than six men, it is the  murder last summer of two year old Willie  Nickell that has so aroused the spirit of  popular vengeance against him, and It is  for this crime that he will be brought to  trial, if, indeed, he be permitted to live so  long.  According to his own confession it was a  love affair that  started Tom Horn, scout,  Indian  fighter,  guide,  stock detective and  professional  assassin    on    his    career    of  crime.  The murderer by. trade now is a handsoe  The  murderer   by   trade   is   a handsome  fellow, now,   and   was   probably   far  more  good to look at in the days when he was  chief   of   the   scouts   and   accompanied   a  small  party    of    officers    to    a   town    In  Northern Mexico. Here Horn met a beautiful  seniorita,  the daughter of the  wealthiest Spaniard  in  the place.  .    It was a case of love at first sight. The  | senorita promptly threw over a young lieutenant in the Mexican army to whom she  wasengagcd. The lieutenant and Horn met  in   the  public   square   one  afternoon,   and  the  officer  promptly  slapped Horn's  face.  The   scout   promptly   whipped   out   a   six-  shooter and as quick as wink shot the officer dead. ���-...,.-.  . ���Horn fle'd to the mountains, where, aided  by some friendly Indians, he made his way  . out across the border to Eagle Pass, Tex-  I'as, where he was joined a month later by  \ his seniorita. The couple were to be marbled, but the day set for their nuptials the  [,, girl   received   word   that  her  mother   was  |. dead and she hurried away to her home to  attend the funeral, promising to return and  [ marry Horn within a month.  ,    Tho scout waited one month, two months,  l'nnd a year sped by, but his senorita never  | returned, and gradually Horn drifted to the  plains of Wyoming.  ,    If, as Horn claims, it was the disastrous  ' ending of this romance that embittered him  I for life, the senorita who was false to him  I certainly should have a great deal on her  f conscience.  For since the day when he realized that  the beautiful Mexican would never return  to him,  the scout has pursued a deliber-  ��� ately vlllianous career as any criminal that  M.cver lived.  Because of Horn's exploits there has been  ; a reign of terror among the ranching districts.   During   this  period  many   murders  , have been committed on the plains of Wyoming, Northern Colorado, Western Nebraska and Southern Montana. The victims in each case have been,small ranchmen, or men suspected or rustling cattle  or branding mavericks.  The murderer performed each bloody job  in exactly the same manner, and each time  tho officers of the law were completely baf-  =flearas"helet't--noHrail^for^UiemHo--l'ollow^  The alleged rustlers were shot from ambush, the assassin using a rifle of small  bore, and the lirst bullet fired doing its  deadly work showed that the man behind  the gun was a crack shot and his aim- was  certain.  But not until July ISth last, when little  "Willie Nickell, an- innocent lad who had  never harmed a living soul, was cruell*}  murdered, did tho people wake up and demand that the assassin bo run down and  punished. The previous killing did not  arouse so much feeling as the victims were  poor maverick hunters, and as the cattle j  barons said it was the only way of putting  a stop to rustling.  The story of the long list of murders of  the Wyoming plains, which culminated iii  tlio* killing of little Willie Nickells is as  follows:  , During the early SO's a large number of  rustlers were arrested and tried, but many  were committed on the ranges during the  lute SO's and early 90's, but the rustling continued with such vigor that the cattle barons called a meeting and decided to take  more  drastic  measures   against  the   mar-  i auders. .  Early in the summer of 1S92, seventy-five  , of the wealthiest and leading cattlemen in  Wyoming formed a party and, accompan-  ' led  by  about  fifty  picked   cowboys   from  ��� Texas, chartered a special train and left  Cheyenne for the north. Surgeons, thousands of rounds of ammunition and food  for  a  two  months'   campaign  were  taken  I along. It is said that Tom Horn was in the  party.  The small army marched ninety miles due  '. north to the Powder river country, for in  this way the cattle barons intended to  mako a clean .sweep.  The cattlemen were betrayed, however,  and with their Texas hirelings were placed  under arrest by the United States authorities. They were charged with murder, and  after several weeks spent in trying to secure a jury they were tried and acquitted.  When the affair had quieted down, it is  alleged that the cattle association brought  in stock detectives to hunt down the rustlers. During the summer of 1S95 William  Powell and William Lewis, ranchmen living in the Iron Mountain country, were  murdered. It was alleged that Horn committed the murders. He was brought before  tho grand jury, but not Indicted.  One ot the startling incidents of the inquiry, however, occurred the day that Horn  was brought into court to testify on his  own behalf.

Take me quick!  That is the man (pointing to Horn) that  shot my papa."  Powell was killed while haying in a meadow near his house. He was shot with a  rifle ball Mired at. long range. Lewis was  killed in his corrall while loading some  beef.  Horn then dropped out o'f sight for  awhile, but in 1S99 two prosperous ranchmen, lsham Dart and Matt Rash, who were  alleged to be rustlers, were killed in their  ranch houses in Brown's park, Colorado,  just over the Wyoming line and about  sixty miles south of Rawlins, Wyoming.  Horn was seen in the vicinity at the time  the murders were committed, and his name  was connected with the crimes.  During the last eight years Horn made  his headquarters at the ranch of John C.  Coble, a wealthy cattleman, formerly of  Carlisle, Pennsylvania, who now lives at  Bosler, Wyoming, thirty miles west of Iron  Mountain, and the scene of the Powell,  Lewis and Nickell murders.  During this time Horn made frequent  trips to Cheyenne, but he was never molested although the belief was that he was  the. murderer of Powell, Lewis, Dart and  Rash. When not in town Horn put in his  time on the range watching suspected cattle rustlers.  On July 15th last Horn left the Coble  ranch at Bosled and rode to the ranch of  William Miller, who lived three miles  northeast of the ranch of Kels P. Nickell,  father of the murdered boy. Horn remained at the Miller ranch until the evening of July 17th, when he disappeared. At  7:30 on the morning of the ISth Willie Nickell was killed. Horn showed up at the Coble  ranch on the morning of the 21st.  Immediately after the murder the coroner of Laramie county empanelled a jury  and investigated the case for five months,  not adjourning until December 15th last.  The jury found that the boy came to his  death at the hands of persons unknown.  The sheriff of Laramie went to work on  the case, and, armed, with the information  that had been gathered by the coroner's  jury, it was not long until Horn was settled upon as the" guilty man. But to catch  him was another matter.  Deputy United States marshal Joe La  Fors, a celebrated western detective and  terror to the outlaws and train robbers,  was engaged on the case. La Fors told  Horn he knew of a cattle outfit in Montana  that wanted a killer, but said that the man  selected would-have to come well recommended. La Fors made Horn believe he  was his friend. Horn came to town to discuss the matter with La Fors, and the  two met in the outer office of the United  States marshal in this city on January 12th.  The county officers had previously placed  deputy sheriff L. E. Snow and stenographer Charles J. Ohnhaus in an adjoining room  and close enough to hear all that was said  by Horn.  ' The following conversation which was  taken down verbatim by the stenograhper  followed:  "There is one thing about me, I shoot too  damned much. You have got to protect  your employers, but I have never got my  employers into any trouble yet."  ^La^Fors^replled:-���No,=JTom,-^you-are^the.  best man to cover up your trail that I have  ever seen. In the killing of Willie Nickell  I could never find any trail."  "No, I never make a trail; no one else  saw it either. The only way to cover up  your trail is to go barefooted.'.'  "Why was Willie Nickell shot? It has  never been explained to me yet. Was it because he was one of the victims marked or  was it compulsion?"  "I think it was this way: Supposing there  wa.s a man in the big draw to the right of  the gate (meaning the gate at which the  boy was shot), you recollect the draw that  runs down by Nickell's house? I think it  was this way: Supposing a man was here  and the kid saw him and then ran up to the  house to give the alarm. The man ran  across to the gate and headed the kid off  and shot him there. Now that is my opinion  of it, and the only way to cover up your  trail is to go barefooted."  Horn was asked by. La Fors where his  horse was all this time, and Horn replied  that it was a long way off. La Fors said  he should think the stock detective would  be afraid to leave his horse so far away.  Horn replied that he had nothing to fear,  as the people in that neighborhood were  unorganized. Horn said:  "The only thing that I have been afraid  of was that I might have to kill an officer.  I would always try to keep out of sight,  but if anyone followed me I was ready to  shoot him."  "Did you have your boots on when you  ran across the draw to the gate-" asked  La Fors.  "No, I did not. I was barefooted."  "But, didn't it make your feet sore? I  could not stand it myself."  "No, I generally have ten days to rest  up after a job of this kind."  Horn then told of a school teacher In the  Iron Mountain district, a Miss Gwendoline  Irene Kimmell, who had become infatuated with him and had kept him posted of  the doings of the coroner's jury and of  people in Cheyenne and Iron Mountain.  The conversation then drifted to Horn  being on the plains for days without food,  and La Fors asked the detective if he  didn't get hungry. "Yes," replied Horn.  "I get so hungry sometimes I would kill  my mother for some food."  When asked what kind of a gun he used  he replied that It was a 30-30 Winchester.  Asked  if  he  thought a 30-30 held  up as  well  as a 30-40.  Horn  replied  that he  did  not,   but  that  ho  wanted  to  get  close  to  his man.

"I thought  he was-going to get away once. It was the  best shot and the dirtiest job I ever done."  "Tom, in the Powell and Lewis killings  you got $600 apiece; you killed Lewis in a  corrall."  "How did you know that?"  "I have known everything that you have  done for a good many years. You were paid  this money for killing Powell and Lewis on  the train between Cheyenne and Denver;  you were paid two one hundred dollar bills,  and the rest in gold, weren't you?"  "Yes."  "And you got $500 for killing the Nickell  boy. Why did you cut the price?"  "I got $2100 for killing the three men and  shooting at another five times." (Meaning  that he had shot at Kels P. Nickells, father  of the boy, five times. Nickells was wounded and has a crippled arm as the result.  The shooting occurred a few weeks after  the shooting of the boy.)  "Killing is my specialty," said Horn. "I  look at it as a business proposition, and I  think I have a corner on the market."  "Why did you put a rock under Willie.  Nickell's head after you had killed him,.  Tom?"  "That is the way I hang out my sign  and collect my money for a job of that  kind."  "Did you have an agreement drawn up  with reference to the killing?"  "No, I do all my business through Coble."  (Meaning J. C. Coble, manager of the Iron  Mountain ranch.)  "Did you ever have any trouble about  collecting your money after a job of this  kind?"  "No. I would kill a man that beat me  out of ten cents that I had earned."  The penalty for murder in this state is  hanging. ���'���"'.  Horn is six feet one inch tall, weighs 190  pounds and is slender and muscular. He is  straight as an arrow, with broad shoulders,  ruddy complexion, black, piercing eyes and  pearly white teeth. He has a high forehead  and a rather well shaped head, which is  partially bald and the rest of the head is  covered with a thick growth of dark brown  hair. His long straight nose is rather prominent and has a reddish scar across cthe  bridge, the record of a cutting scrape. On  the right side of his neck and extending  from the Adam's apple back under the  right ear, Is an ugly scar caused by a slash  with a bowie knife during a fight with cowboys in Wyoming two years ago. The lower  left jaw is slightly out of alignment where  it was broken one day last' summer during  a saloon row in Denver.  When a boy Horn accompanied his father  on all his freighting expeditions and  learned to use a rifle and pistol with great  skill. The younger Horn always kept the  freight outfit supplied with fresh meat,  for he could knock over a buffalo with as  much ease as the famous Buffalo Bill of  wild west fame.  During one of these trips the freight  train was' attacked by a band of Apache  Indians. Horn's father was killed and although only fourteen years old, Tom Horn  swore vengeance. In. less than three years  he tok the trail, entered the hostile country and picked off the Indians of the par-,  ticular;_band_ that murdered his father, one  by  one,   until  he  exterminated  the entire  band���nineteen in number.  Horn became familiar with every foot  of the Arizona, western Texas and New  Mexico country, and at the age of twenty  years he was engaged as a scout in the  United States army. It was Horn who led  the troops against Geronimo, the murderous chief of the Apaches, and but for his  skill as a scout the old chief would probably have retained his liberty for many years.  SAYS DANIELS IS A GROOK  President Roc-Bevelt's Bough Eider  WASHINGTON, February 15��� If any  citizen has any knowledge of the whereabouts of Benjamin Franklin Daniels, recently appointed United States marshal for  the territory of Arizona, he will confer a  favor by sending his address to the White  House, Washington, D. C. Until recently it  was not quite clear whether the man's  name was Ben Daniels or Benjamin S.  Daniel, but the authoratlve announcement  Is now made that tho right name of tho  gallant Rough Rider, who is said to be a  victim of mistaken identity, is Benjamin  Franklin Daniels. IC there are two men of  that name who formerly lived in "Wyoming  and Colorado, each of whom has: lost the  lobe of his left ear, then it is possible that  the one who has been appointed marshal  of Arizona will live to fill that office. Otherwise he will not.  President Roosevelt is sincerely anxious  that his Benjamin Franklin Daniels will  come to the front with proof of the claim  made by his friends that he never committed larceny and never served a term in  prison. The president grows enthusiastic  in discussing the good qualities of the  Rough Rider who served with him with  such conspicious gallantry on San Juan  Mil, and he is confident he possesses all the  qualifications essential in an ideal United  States marshal in a western territory.  Every paper on file at the White House in  the Daniels case, except the one statement  that he has a prison record, is in his favor,  and this makes the president more than  ever anxious to learn that when Daniels  told him that he had never been convicted  or accused of crime, that he spoko the  truth. Within the past three days many  testimonials from towns in Wyoming and  Colorado have come to tho White Mouse  by mail and telegraph, testifying to the  integrity, bravery and ability of the president's appointee. The people of Cripple  Creek to a man, without regard to politics or religion, deny that Daniels ever  dealt a "brace" game of faro, but say the  game he ran was always fair and square.  The Daniels case lias become a favorite  topic in administration circles and In clubs  and at dinners, and one of the most interesting incidents in connection with it is  the account of the speech made in the executive session by senator Hoar ol Massa-  *-rr*nvfrVt*iKrMf0g.  in, ww    - ,....,.

Senator Hoar grew eloquent In repelling the  charge that Daniels was a desperado, and  a bad man, and in summing up his eloquent  plea he expressed his desire to be perfectly  fair, for, as he said, he did not desire to  allow his somewhat puritanical New England notions to put a curb on the free and  untrammelled habits of life in the wild and  woolly west.  It Is remembered by senators that when  president Roosevelt appointed the Hon. Pat  Garrett to ofiice, just before the nomination of Benjamin Franklin Daniels was  sent to the senate, an urgent appeal came  from the citizens of Nogales demanding  that before the nomination was confirmed  the senate should ascertain the truth of  he charge that Hon. Pat is an agnostic.  The other counts in the indictment  brought against him by ills enemies were  lost sight of, but when the charge of agnosticism was disproved Garrett was  -promptly confirmed. In the behalf of Daniels tho assurance is given that ..he Is a  Methodist, and therefore there'is ho objection from any source on the score of his  religion.  Porto Rico Lumber Go.

Graves, manager of the big Granby  copper property at Grand Forks, who has  just returned from an extended trip to Boston, ��� New York and southern California,  speaks encouragingly of the mining outlook  of British Columbia. He says:  "The decline in the price of copper will  have no effect on the continued operation  of the Granby mines. It will, of course, reduce the profits of the company in the  treatment of Its own ores, but as we can  treat those ores as cheaply as any other  ores can be treated by any. other smelter  In the world, we feel no uneasiness on the  score of the reduction in the market price  "WTibpplSr. ""  "While I have not visited the smelter  since leaving for the cast, I have kept in  touch with its operation. The plant Is  equipped for the treatment of ores by tho  latest scientidc methods and now has a capacity of 1500 per day. Two furnaces will  be started at once, and if after a trial run  to test the capacity of the plant with reference to the amount of ore we can handle  to advantage from our mines, the conditions are satisfactory, the plant will be increased to a capacity of 2000 tons per day.  "Wo are treating our own matte, thus  saving the cost of transportation to New  York. AVe aro producing blister copper, almost chemically pure, and have demonstrated that we can do this as cheaply a.s  lt can be done in tho oast. We are now successfully treating the matte from other  British  Columbia smelters.  "While no definite plans have been formulated looking to the immediate establishment of a copper refinery, such is the  intention of the company. There is no reason why the refining of copper ores can not  be done as cheaply, if not cheaper, than in  the east. At least our company has determined to test.the matter.  "Dr. A. R. 'Ledoux, who is regarded as  one of the best export authorities on copper  ores, in his report after examinig our mines  ^declared that the ore deposit wns the largest that he had ever visited or inspected.���  Spokano Review."
