Hampered by  Coal  Shortage  and  Bad
Weather���Quotations on Stock
The week In mining hai been feature-
loss and rather confused. The restoration of peace in tho coal fields and the
prospect of a continuous supply ssf cu_l
have removed one threatening difficulty,
but labor troubles ln the Houndary have
more than offset the gain so far as that
district is concerned.
Negotiations for Sheep Creek and Lardeau properties have been in progress
for some tlmo but none are yet completed.
The stock market for lhe paat week
though showing no great advances or
declines was very steady and active.
The settlement of Uie labor trouble
caused the llrltlsh Columbia and Alberta securities listed on the Spokane
exchange to be In great demand with
Blight advances lu nearly every stock.
With the waning of tho Cobalt boom.
Western stocks are again becoming favorites on Eastern exchanges.
Of the coal stocks Alberta and llreck-
enrldge & Lund, while showing no greal
advance, were firmer and ln more demand. International on the other hand
gained 3 to 4 cents with every probability of a greater advance next week.
Western Oil Con. again became a favor
Ite, being in demand at from 15 to 20
cents advance over last week's prices,
and with every Indication of a greater
advance In the near future.
Dominion Copper was steady throughout and gained about $1 per share at
the cloBe. n. C. Copper was erratic, advancing one day and dropping tbe next,
and during the week changing but
Cariboo McKinney reacted with but
little demand. Consolidated Smelters
were offered freely at low and attrac-
llce prices. Rambler Cariboo and Sullivan remained quite unchanged.

Germany Wili Not Discuss Disarmament
Hostility to Britain Likely to Destroy
Possible Usefulness of Hague
London, May 11.���Germany's flat refusal to discuss any proposal for the
limitation uf armaments hue deprived
The Hague conference of Its chief Im-
poriaiicsi. lt will now, of course, be Impossible to accomplish auy practical result In this direction, and it Is doubted
in diplomatic circles if the subject will
even be raised for academic discussion.
The German authorities bave faced
squarely ihe reproach that their atUlude
will earn llie,11 the reputation for disturbing tbe noble word peace from
sheer love of war or from military ambition or other self-seeking motives.
Chancellor von Luclow says ln lhe
clearest language: "There are in England, France, Italy and American plenty
ot friends ot peace and civilization wbo
believe they will best promote peace lf
tbey allow no illusions to arise, and if,
while pursuring ideal alms, they do not
lose sight of realities. I lately had tbe
satisfaction ot finding an utterance in
this sense even ln a Social Democratic
Journal, lienor lute Ihan never. It is
impossible to subject Germany lo pressure .even to moral pressure."
lt was a maladroit move on the part
of the premier, Sir Henry Campbell-
llaiiiieiiiinii, to announce the Hritish
views on this subject in a partisan publication a month ago Instead of submitting tbem to tbe conference itself.
He accomplished nothing, except to
arouse German suspicion and give
Prince von Huelow an opportunity to
velo In advance a proposal which would
have carried a far greater weight lf only
submitted by a majority of the powers.
Moreover, he succeeded in focusing
upon Great Hritain ail tbe German
anger and resentment, with the result
that Anglophobia has been fanned to a
whiter beat in the Kaiser's dominions
than ever before. Even Herr RasBer-
iuan, the leader of the German Liberals,
has declared thut Germany would accept no dictation In regard to armaments, and be advised England to make
a note of it. Herr Wiener, the leading
Radical In the Reichstag, described the
proposal to limit armaments as a diplomatic means of weakening the position
of Germany.
An Act of Benevolence.
E. F. Gigot has received from the
manager of the Hudson's Bay stores at
Victoria a donation of $25 for the woman ln Nelson who has been left ln Indigent circumstances. The name of tbe
"donor ls not given. Tbe letter accompanying the donation simply states that
thc money was handed to the Victoria
manager by some one who had read of
tbe woman's unfortunate condition.

for some time and will put a strong aggregation ln the Held on this occasion.
Nelson will also have a good team. Scot-
ty Williams and Harry Jamieson will be
seen tn the line-up, which Ib a guarantee that the match will be a good one.
Shortage of Coal.
The railroads aud smelters still complain of a shortage ot coal. While the
strike has been settled, the output Ib
not as great as it was before the strike.
This Is caused by a Bborlage of miners,
many of whom left as soon as the strike
was declared, and It has been found
Impossible to All their places.

Praise   British. Diplomacy���But   Fear
German Resentment.
Paris, May 11.���The French press received with general satisfaction the announcement lhat negotiations are in
progress between .France and Japan,
looking to an undei standing guaranteeing the political and commercial interests of the two powers In the Far Eaet,
aa relieving Fran;* of the danger of
the loss of Indo China and as serving
all the nations with Interests In the Far
East. Tbe papers also recognize in the
approaching understanding a triumph
for British diplomacy. Tbe Petit Pari-
sien says it considers tbat the entente
involves "Japan's renunciation of the
new Munroe doctrine of Asia for the
Asiatics," and tbe Gil Blaa, while maintaining that the agreement Is not directed against any particular country,
contends that It constitutes "a warning
for the power wbleh Is excluded."
The Gaulola ia exercised lest the entente "create Inquietude fn America and
facilitate an American-German rapprochement," while tbe Eclaire says It

New London County Council Tackling
Problems of Financial Reform
���Heavy Burdena.
London, May 11.���Reform of the local
government of London is already bearing fruit. Tbe new county council has
already affected such economies that a
reduction in the rate ot taxation is announced. One of the chief scandals of
the municipal ownership administration
waB in connection with the worka department, which was wasteful beyond
words. The new council has decided to
obtain private estimates on all important works, and if their own engineers
figured a higher cost, then to award the
Job to the private contractor. This action was taken in regard to a sewer,
which Is to cost $1,600,000.
The reform members of the new council met yesterday to decide what to do
about the great electric scheme, Involving an expenditure of ��26,000,000,
which was adopted by the old council.
This contemplated a municipal monoply
ot all electric supplies under municipal
management. It was decided to promote a scheme for the consolidation of
all London electric enterprises, Including the erection of four great generating stations. Tbe council is to have
power to lease the undertaking to tbe
Consolidated companies, under proper
safeguards. Including a limit of cost of
two cents per unit of power. It was
agreed that under no circumstances
would the council consent to operate
the undertaking.
Roome Scarce.
The scarcity of dwelling accommodation has become so great that the

Roosevelt Says
Decision Fioal
Testimonials of National Esteem Hay
Help to Secure Continuation of His Policy.
Washington, May 11. ��� President
Roosevelt cisuractertzes as "absolute
nonsence ie talk of nominating and
electing blm for a third term.
Mr. Ro aevelt has talked freely with
several oi the callers at the While
House on this subject. He made lt
plain, however, that he will not come
out In any formal statement on the
subject of a third term. He considers
that what be said immediately following tbe election In lbu-i, and wb-.i be
said subsequently, should suffice. He
thinks he should be taken at hla word
and let lt go at that.
In any way, the agitation for a third
term Ib of considerable advantage to
him at the present time as a political
asset and will aid him in keeping control of his campaign to force the adoption of hla policies sat the next con-
tion. It will also continue to keep blm
as the dominating influence ln tbe Republican party and give blm a strong
leverage in naming his successor and
dictating the next party platform.
Those who were present yesterday
when be talked about the "third term"
sentiment and stated that from his
standpoint It would be "absolute nonsense" for him to give lt any encouragement, were convinced tbat be meant
every word he eald, and that he would
refuse the nomination if it were tendered him by the national convention.
The president practically concedes
that be Ib playing a big game to force
the adoption of his policies by tbe next
Republican national convention. To
bring this about, the third term furore
is not proving a hindrance. Wltb a
widespread demand for his re-nomtna-
tion, he will be in an excellent position
10 reject the office, but insist tbat a man
be named wbom he considers will carry
out the ideas be stands for. For this
reason he will not object to being kept
in the forefront as the favorite of the
United Statea for a time as a means of
blocking the plans of other candidates
In whom he ls not interested.
The president regards most ot these
candidates aa having been put forward
to assure the selection of delegations
from the states that will not Insist on
waiting for the next national convention.
The third term boom he believes Is
also of Inestimable value as a rallying
cry for all his supporters or the supporters of his policies and so he ls
willing to let lt go ahead without any
further formal Btatement or denial on
his part.
As a matter of tact the president ls
laughing quietly tn hla sleeve at the
assurances he is constantly receiving
from senators and members of tbe
house that they want him for the next
Republican candidate. He does not go
so far as to impeach the sincerity of
their motives ln telling him that their
states and districts want him to run
again, but he generally knows how near
the senator ln question is up for reelection, and with the members of the
house, they have to face their constituents every two years, and he thinks
that explains a lot of telegrams.
When the president makes bis speech
at Indianapolis on Decoration Day he
will take occasion to outline his policies
all over again. It ls understood tbat Income and Inheritance taxes and the federal regulation of corporations, to prevent over-capltallaatlon, will be a leading feature.
* New Machinery.
The Kootenay Marble Works has
added a new planer to thetr plant on
Front street. This piece of machinery
will save a great deal of labor and will
turn out better work than was done by
the old method. It ls now being placed
ln position and will be In operation
within a few days.
American  Naval   Manoeuvres  Showing
Valuable Results.
Newport, R. I.. May 11.���All American records for quick diving were
broken yesterday when the submarine
Octopus went through a series of extraordinary testa In the Covington Cove
ln a nasty ses with a thick fog and a
wind that blew at a rate of 40 miles an
hour. The principal thing was to determine whether the Octopus would be
able to be submerged quickly should an
enemy be sighted running at tull speed
on the surface propelled by gasoline engines. The Octopus received the signal,
Immediately the engines were stopped
and power waa furnished by storage
batteries. The submarine sank to a
depth of 20 feet so that the deck was
at a depth of 16 feet. All thle was accomplished In four and a half Inmutes.
A Becond test reduced the time to four
Sir WliTiam Ramsay's Chemical Work
Scientifically Interesting.
London, Hay 11���Sir William Ramsay, of Cambridge university, wbo ls reported to have succeeded In accomplishing what no other chemist has been
able to do, the production of copper by
the synthetic, or combination process,
from the elements sodium, lltlum and
potassium, was questioned yesterday,
but he declined to either affirm or deny
the report.
From another source lt was learned
that Sir William, who has been carrying on experiments for months past, has
produced interesting and valuable scientific results by treating copper with the
emanations of radium. It Is declared,
however, that these discoveries have no
commercial :alue.
Only Waiting fer Coke Supply���Labor
Troubles Not Serious���Other
Boundary Newa.
Grand Forks, May 10.���It ls unofficially stated today that, the Granby smelter
will resume operations again and be
running in full blast before the end of
the present month. The plant will, It
is understood, not start up again until
a sufficient supply of coke has been secured to warrant a steady run of the
eight furnaces. No serious difficulties
are anticipated from any existing differences regarding wages between the
company and ita employees aa lt ls
understood that things will be settled
satisfactorily all round. A mining
man arriving here from Greenwood today is authority for the statement that
nearly all the high-grade properties In
that camp are- being forced to greatly
reduce their force until the present labor difficulties are ended; he also states
that a systematic form of prospecting
the Strathmore property would now be
carried on by means of diamond drills,
It being proposed to bore a -series of
holes 1,500 feet deep at various places
on the property. In spite of the fact
that the price of lumber has advanced
aa well as the workmen's wuges, a great
deal of building will be carried on here
this summer, already several doxen
handsome buildings have been contracted for and It is fully expected that several business blocks will be erected during the next tew months.
Both forks ot the Kettle, river are now
booming and trom the preeent indications the high water this year will fully
equal that ot 1898. All the low lands in
the valley are being flooded and there
ls considerable hustling among the residents ot these sections to move their
families to places of safety. Great volumes of water���are coming over the
smelter dam and both rivera are tull of
floating driftwood.
New Match for Burns.
New York, May 11.���A despatch from
Los Angeles says Bill Squires, of Australia, and Tommy Burns were matched
there yesterday to box at Colma for the
world's championship on May 30th.
James W. Coffroth, the San Francisco
promoter, arranged the event at a conference with the parties interested at a
local sporting resort. Squires' end was
looked after by hla manager, Barney
Reynolds. The bout Is expected to go
45 rounds.
Anarchist Arrested.
Bucharest, May 11.���An anarchist
named Galdoff, charged with complicity
in a plot against the life ot King
Charles, was arrested here yesterday.
He refused absolutely to reveal the real
names of his associates or impart details of tbe conspiracy.
Floor Collapsed.
Chicago, May l'l.���One man .was
killed, and a dosen other persons injured last night by the collapse of part

any negotiations being entered upon by
the parties to the controversy.
Mexico is Patient Wltb
Minister of Foreign Relations Talks
of Situation aad Hopes
lor Settlem-pit.
Mexico City, May 11.���Mexico will not
go to war with Guatemala over the
question of the extradition of General
Jose Maria Lima, charged with complicity ln tbe assassination of General
Manuel Lasandrio Barillas, formerly
president of Guatemala, who was killed
ln the City of Mexico. This tact waa
today officially communicated to the Associated Press by Minister of Foreign
Relations Marlscala. This decision of the
government is Irrevocable. Minister
Marlscala modified his statement to say
that any overt act or direct Insult by
the Cabrera government would completely change the attitude of the Mexican government. He added that no such
contingency was expected to arise.
For the third time Mexico has addressed Guatemala In regard to the affair* In the latest note the government
pointed out the extreme patience wltb
which lt had acted and wanted President Cabrera of the light in which he
would be placed before the world In
case of his refusal to acquiesce ln Mexico's request. Until a reply ot this ls
received no cabinet m-aetings will be
held. What will happen ln the event
tbat the reply to this latest and most
urgent note. If unfavorable to the government, la a matter which the state
department refuses to discuss la detail.
Minister Marlscala stated that relations
between the two countries might be
broken off, but even this, he satd, would
not be construed as a proposal for war.
This was as tar as Minister Marlscala
cared to be quoted, but trom an official
source aa high as thst of the head of
the state department It was learned that
tbe decision of the Mexican government
unravelled one thread ot the tangle In
which the Guatemalan affair ls bound.
President Estrada Cabrada of Guatemala played his last card when he sent
a note to the Mexican government demanding the extradition of Dr. Emlle
Leon, Colonel Francisco Orla. snd Dr.
Louis Felipe O'Brien. It was charged
that he had positive proof, in the communication, that those three men were
Implicated ln the recent attempts to assassinate him.
Mexico regards this movement of
Cabrera as an undignified political trick..

pne   -week   from   next   Monday   tlie
biierty owners nf Nelson will volo on
a bylaw authorizing tbe issuo of city
debentures to the extent of ���$110,0011 to
provide Hciiool uccoltiniuduUou.
There Is little argument about the
matter. Those who believe in public education, und ulsu believe In Neluon, take
for grant-ad that nil others have the
same faith, nnd ciiiiiiofctniceive of on-
position. Those who de.s|iino popular
education or doubt of the future of Nelsou, naturally refrain from expressing
opinions tliey know would be unpopular.
The advocates of the school cannot nf
ford to lake things for granted. They
huve two -enemies to contend with. They
have ihe resolute, though comparatively
silent, opposition of a few who have no
sympathy with free education, eienien
tary. BOCOndary or university, and con
sider money spent for il us wasted; anil
they have the indifference of a class
probably larger, who have no children
of school age, who believe in education
in a general wa,-, but lake little Interest in lt, and who in the present circumstances think chiefly of Increased
It should be unnecessary tu remind
all qualified voters that it requires
three-fifths of the vote polled to curry
a money bylaw. If the vote is very
light, a small number of opponents may
defeat the bylaw and do irreparable
damage to Nelson.
It iB to the credit of the citizens that
they are ashamed of the public school
buildings. They are not shown to
strangers and no views of them are Included in advertiBlns matter. Descriptions of them avoid mention ot the
buildings and praise the staff.
No one will seriously deny that such
��� state of affair* is damaging as well
as discreditable to the city. Every effort is being made by local organizations to promote the progress of Nelson by Improving the city uud by attracting settlers. Nelson hus long been
the most attractive residential city in
the interior of Hritish Columbia. Surely it is the desire of all that that position should be maintained. The residents wanted for Nelson are families of
a good cIusb. To the heads of all such
families the first consideration invariably, in muking choice of location, is
the facilities for the educutiou of their
Nelson cannot afford to offer facilities Inferior to those of every other
city in the province and that is her present  position.
Pretences of dispute as to whether
the city should vote $50,000 or $110,000
may be ignored. Nine out of twelve-
men elected by the city believe that
the larger sum is required. The choke
is not between $50,00(1 and $60,000. It
is between $00,000 aud nothing.
We are confident thut lf the vote on
the bylaw is anywhere nearly representative, the bylaw will he carried by o
decisive majority.
The Dally Canadian bus frequently
been tuken to task liy Liberal or nondescript papers for failure to duly admire the grcutness of Sir Wilfrid Laurier and J. A, Macdonald,
For the sake of argument we have
conceded thnt Sir Wilfrid is a graceful
and charming speaker nnd as an ornamental     representative     without    a
We would glady have continued to
believe so, but some, two especially, of
Sir Wilfrid's latest speeches have been
rather a shock. Probably it ls impossible for thc style not to Buffer from the
poverty of the matter.
At the -Guildhall, on April 16th, when
the colonial premiers were given the
freedom of the city of London, thore
was an opportunity for comparison. Sir
Wilfrid wns thc only speaker of the
day who even ln his own country had
lieen acclaimed as an orator. His speech
on that occasion was below the level of
all the others. It was full of absolutely
meaningless repetition and unsuccessful
straining after rhetorical effect.
His latest speech at the luncheon In
Westminister Hall, which our contemporary quotes ln full, is even worse.
The first two sentences begin "In these
modern days." ln his reference to the
scene he say: "this hull ,thls old historic building." That Is not happy, It is
not particularly euphonious, and it is
commonplace. Lord Maoaulay exhausted the rhetorical possibilities of Westminister Hull In his introduction lo the
trial of Hastings. "Masters of craft
und eloquence" in not a very happy epithet for the great statesmen or Britain.
The only thing iu the speech thul conveys any meaning, thai Is nol Utterly
commonplace is the closing phrase "Imperial amity bused upon local
Observe "amity"; Sir Wilfrid won't
even say "unity." The "cheers," "loud
aud prolonged cheers," bear eloquent
testimony to the generosity uud polite-
ness of Uritish members of parliament
The birth of an heir to the Spanish
throne is rightly u mutter for rejoicing
not only to Spain bul to all friends of
the peace of Europe and the world. The
monarchy is more popular In Spain now
thun for many decades before, and
Spuin's relations with all her neighbors
are excellent. The popularity of Queen
Victoria will cement the traditional
friendship "f Spain and Hritain born of
Spanish gratitude for Urltisb aid against
.Napoleon, lt may also be hoped thai
the British Influence of a half-English
ruler some day will lead Spain a little
faster aloug tlie path of industrial
Like the case of Harry Thaw, the
trial of the Western Federation of Miners officials Is evidently to be the occasion for a vast auiouut of Irrelevant
gossip. Stories aboul prisoners, witnesses and counsel, rumors of ohanges
of jiliin and the like. The Daily Canadian will as far as possible eliminate
such stuff from its reports. As the
case now stunds the tedious tusk of selecting the jury will probably not be
completed till near the end of next
week, and not till then can any evidence
be offered.
Ex-President Koosevelt .the title he is
determined to enjoy soon, will be a remarkable figure. His influence is personal und almost independent of his
office. It seems a defect in the American constitution that the services of u
man ln the prime of life, in whose ability and integrity the whole nation believes, should be available only a limited
time. Britain and her colonies enjoy
the life service of their greatest.

Teaching of the Nature and Function of
the Holy Ghoat���Services Announced for Tomorrow.
To morrow will be the Sunday afler
Aactmiiluu Duy. No holy days occur
during the following week.
Ascensiontide und the following week
Is the Beason chosen In Canada by nearly all the religious bodies for making
aiipi-uls for support of Home Missions.
In the history of the openlug up of
Canada, far more than In that of the
United States, of Australia, South Africa or any other of the new nations, the
riimtler preacher and missionary haB
lieen an Important (lRiiri'. It Is often
referred to as a disgrace lo Canada
that liiiuiii-iai assistance for Us religious
bodies Bhould be sought in the old country where tlie average of prosperity is
lower than In Canada. Hut no othor
counlry has had anything like Canada's
problems to solve and, on the whole the
effort has been successful. There ls no
doubt that the maintenance of law and
public morality, in whicli Canada has
undoubtedly excelled all other countries
ln their pioneer periods, has been greatly assisted by the frontier preachers.
The influence on the Kootenay, for example, of the life and work of men like
the late Rev Henry Irvine and Rev.
Father Coccola, can hardly be exaggerated.
The gospel for tomorrow contains
Christ'B teaching to the disciples of the
comlug of the Holy Ghost, and of the
time of trial and adversity through
which the early church was to go.
The following services are announced
for tomorrow ln the churches of Nel
Church of England���St. Saviour's,

26th, 1903, while en route from Ceylon,
where he had been ln command. He
fought with distinction in Afghanistan,
in the Boer war of 1881 aud also In the
recent Boer War, in which lie commanded the Highland Brigade, and he also
figured consplciously in the fighting
against Arab! Pasha in Egypt and the
Mahdi ln the Sudan.
The publication in the Machester paper Ib to the effect that "Fighting Mac,"
as Sir Hector was known ln military
and Scottish circles, is still very much
alive, and is now organizing a powerful
army for China.
The most circumstantial story bearing on Sir Hector's alleged survival
emanates from Johannesburg from a
man who recently arrived there from
the Far East. He asserts tbat he saw
"Fighting Mac" at Nanking, China, last
year, putting his astonishing declaration
In the following form:
"I knew Hector Macdonald very well,
hoth ln Egypt and South Africa. 1 was
In Nanking in December last. I saw a
battalion of Chinese soldiers being
drilled in European style on a space in
the centre of the city, and, feeling curious, 1 walked up to where three officers
were standing. One of them was Sir
Hector Macdonald. He was clean-shaven
but otherwise he had altered very little
since the occasion of my last meeting
him in Pretoria.
"I was almoBt breathless with astonishment. I was about to speak to htm
when his eyes met mine. He turned
rapidly round to one of the other officers and said something quickly in
"The officer, almost springing at me,
shouted: 'Leave this ground at once, or
we will put you where your friends
won't find you in a hurry.' I left Nanking that night for Shanghai, and I
found that the fact that Sir Hector Macdonald was In that country was believed by a great many English people."
Ab strengthening the story, it Is pointed out that no inquest was held on the
body alleged to he that of Sir Hector
Macdonald; but in official and other
quarters little attention has been paid
to the matter. The paper's Johannesburg Informant, officials believe, waB
mistaken in his man.
