Nelson   Choral   Society  Pleased  Large
Audience With May Queen and
Wagnerian  Selections. ,'
The Nelson Choral Society in the
opera house last night produced Stern-
dale Bennett's cantata The May Queen
before an audience which by Its numbers
to some extent compensated foi its comparative lack of reBponslve enthusiasm.
During the past two years the society
has done much to elevate thc standard
of musical appreciation In the city, but
lta practlsing8 this year have been carried on under unprecedented difficulties
owing to the severity of the weather
and the prevalence of sickness. These
causes led to a certain depletion of the
chorus last evening, but in Bplle of tbis
drswback their performance reflected
the utmost credit on the energetic conductor. K. M. Macdonald, and the small
but select few under his baton. The
diminished number of male voices especially told against the fullness of effect which greater volume of tone would
have ensured.
The society showed enterprise In providing In the flrst part of the programme a selection from the best
known choruses of Wagner's operas. In
days long ago, before Richard Strauss
had commanded the attention of an astonished world, Wagner's music was
known as tho music of the future. Tho
pieces presented last night have long
boen established favorites aii over the
world. None of them, however, excited
the languid interest of last night's audience to any considerable extent. The
bright and happy Bridal chorus from
Lohengrin, "Faithful and True.'* waB
followed by the charming Spinning
chorus for female voices from the Fly-
ing Dutchman. The splendid and exhilarating festal chorus from Tannhau-
ser, "Hall Bright Abode," with Its brilliant Instrumental Introduction seemed
to give most pleasure to the listeners
The rendering of these pieces showed
that much careful labor had been bo-
stowed on thc preparation of them, and
they were sung with a vigor and certainty, and attention to light and shade
which were quite satisfactory. The support given by the small orchestra, and
their rendering of the Instrumental
part of the Tannhauser music was all
thai could be desired. During this part
of tho programme Mrs. Briggs, who was
ln fine voice, gave a highly finished rendering of Schubert's wlerd "Erl King,"
and In response to a well-merited encore sang the same composer's "Wanderers," with a command and beauty
of expression worthy of bo great a masterpiece. The difficult accompaniments
to these songs were played by H. 8
Bodmor with characteristic felicity.
Thc libretto of the "May Queen" cantata In weak and unreal. Tho composer
owed nothing to the poetaster who devised It. Nevertheless Sterndale Bennett was able to fit to the futile wordB
music both Bweet and scholarly .sufficiently melodious to please everyone
and not too exacting In its demand upon the dramatic sympathies of an audience. The part of the May Queen was
taken by Mrs. Shanks, whose clear and
sweet soprano voice, and whose purity
and simplicity of style in singing, suited
lt to perfection. Her rendering of the
air, "O My Liege Lady," wub especially noteworthy as an expression of full,
yet unstrained feeling. At very short
notice Mrs. llannlngton undertook tho
part of the Queen of England, which
had. beon originally entrusted to Mra.
Goepel, and sang the music with
a quiet dignity which suited tho part.
An the lover, Q. Brown, whoso clear
tenor voice has rendered good service
at all the society's performances, and
whose unpretending wlllngness to help
disarms criticism, shows the steady
progress which ho Is making ob a vocalist nnd gavo an efficient account of
tho part. The recitation nnd duet, Can
I Not Find," sung by the May Queen
nnd the lover, was a careful nnd excellent piece of work, nnd thc trio, ��� The
Hawthorn In the Glade," in which thoy
were Joined by S. A. Wye. as Robin
Hood, reflected credit on all three vo-
cnllsls. In tho ungrateful baritone part
of Robin Hood,    Mr. Wye showed evi
dence of careful study. His rendering
of the thoroughly English solo, '"Tis
Jolly to Hunt," was especially vigorous
and effective. The work of the chorus
waa tlone with much precision, the read-
ineBB of the attack being particularly
noticeable. The bright effect of the
opening, "Wake With a Smile, O Month
of May," evidently pleased the audience, particularly perhaps In view of
the tardiness of tho present springtime.
"A Melancholy Plight," was a model of
careful concerted singing. The solo
I Mrs. Shanks) nnd clioriiH, "With a
Laugh as We Oo 'Round," won last
night's audience from lis languor to demand an encore. Traces of weakness
appeared, oBpeclally in the male parts
In some of the more exacting passages
of the cantata. But these were easily
overlooked and forgotten In listening
b) the melodious, "Hark! Their Notes
Ihe Hautboys Swell," and the enBemble
of the stirring finale. Thc orchestral
work in the somewhat severe overture,
and the pleasing pageant music were
very well rendered, and the accompaniments throughout were played with
taste and judgment, the heaviest part
of the work of course devolving on H.
S. Bodmer at the pianoforte. R. M.
Macdonald. whose geniality and patience as a choir trainer are chiefly
responsible for the excellent results of
last evening's performance, conducted
with his usual ability, and before the
performers had left the building, received a hearty acknowledgment from
Inventory of Jewels Left by Lata Shah
of Persia,
London, April 26.���Advices from
Teheran say that a -careful Inventory
of the treasures left by the late Shab
bas been made. The collection Includes
a number of unrivalled diamonds and
other atones. The old crown of the
Persian dynasty contains a ruby as big
as a hen's egg.
A belt studded with diamonds and
worn only on state occasions weighs 18
pounds, and is valued at several hun
dred thousand pounds.
A wonderful silver vase Is decorated
with a hundred smaragds, one of
which is so large that it was found poe
slble to engrave on lt the Shah's num
erous titles.
A remarkable feature of the collection Is a square block of amber of 400
cubic inches said to have dropped trom

Discounts 8torles of Strained Relations
Between British and German Empires.
New York, April 26.���A special cable
from London to the New York Herald
today says: "Outbursts ln the German
press against England, or anything In
the English press, are usually followed
by counter attacks in tbe English papers. But the frenzied outpourings
which have been appearing In German
newspapers and in German subsidized
papers, published in Austria, denouncing King Edward's Mediterranean tour
und his visits to King Alfonso, and
King Victor Emmanuel, have aroused
not the least excitement In England.
Beyond publishing despatches from
Berlin and other correspondents who
quote what the German papers bave to
say, hardly a word of comment has appeared in the London press. Even the
German talk about 'King Edward's relentless anti-German agitation,' and of a
'coming war,' Is passed over as apparently unworthy of notice. In fact, the
London Press Is much more Interested
in tho forthcoming visit of the German
Emperor, when he is promised a quite
hearty welcome. It is expected that,
given only fine weather, that Goodwood
and Cowes week this year should be
more than usually brilliant with the
promised presence of the German Em-
"His Majesty is to arrive in England
on the Hohenzollern at the end of July,
nnd according to present arrangements,
after anchoring In the roads at Cowes,
will go from there to attend the Goodwood races, returning for thc regratta
week, and do some automoblllng In the
New forest in the Interval. Thero will
be tho usual exchange of roynl hospitalities. Thursday during Cowes week
being sot for a big royal dinner on
board the Victoria and Albert, while
the dav following the Kaiser will entertain King Edward and Queen Alexandra
on the Hohenzollern. London Ib also returning thanks to the Kaiser for the
new enjoyment he has afforded society
by a new dance, which he has recently lnventod, called 'The Deulschlander.'
It Is being taught in all high class dancing acedomlca. It has also beon Introduced at Marlborough House, where,
when Iho Prince and Princess nre ln
town, thero ls n dancing class twice
weekly for the young princes and their
sister, the circle alao Including the
children of Lord nnd Lady Desborougb,
Lord nnd Lady Knollys, and Lord anJ
Lady Salisbury. It Is considered a very
graceful and picturesque dance."
Colonials Do Not Favor

Port Garrisons.
London, April 26.���Yesterday's sitting
of the Imperial Conference was devoted
to discussing matters -connected with
the defence of the Empire. The resolution providing for the creation of a general staff of the Empire, which was
tabled April 20th, was again brought up
and finally adopted with a few verbal
The first lord of the admiralty, Lord
Tweedmouth, outlined a scheme for Imperial defence, and lengthily discussed
Its general trend. .The remarks of the
colonial premiers on the subject were
In favor of a discontinuance of the colonial contributions, which hitherto
have been sunk in the general naval -expenditure, and the substitution of a system by which tbe colonies may man and
keep up a certain number of ships, to
be supplied by Great Britain, and undertake to maintain coaling stations and
ammunition and food depots available
for the Imperial navy.
Presentation   to   Retiring   Alderman���
Activity at Qrand Forks.
Orand Forks, April 26.���Last evening
a representative meeting of citizens
gathered in the city offices for the pur
pose of presenting an address to Alderman John Donaldson, who is about to
remove to Moose Jaw. Mayor Hammer,
on behalf of the citizens, also presented Mr. Donaldson with a very hand-
some gold watch and chain aa a alight
token of the high esteem Mr. Donald-
son iB held ln by bis fellow citizens.
Alderman John Donaldson has resided
in Grand Forks for the past seven years
and has been on two occasions elected
to the city council. He is leaving tomorrow for Moose Jaw, where he will
engage in the wholesale fruit business.
E. Spraggett, J. P., has Just returned

preferred against A. H. Thompson of
that place. Tbe accused was fined )20

under a t200 bond to keep the peace for
the space of 12 months.
Both the Kettle Valley railway bridge
and the city bridge being built on 4th
and 6th streets respectively over the
Kettle river are nearly completed. It
13 estimated that the city bridge will
cost fully $8,000. while tbe railway
bridge will cost close to $16,000.
Provincial Road Supervisor E. Spraggett has left for the upper north fork
district yesterday to put the various
bridges ln good repair bo that they will
not be carried out by the high water.
The 20,000 Club haa taken up the mat-

Stephenson's Predictions Upset���Also a
Freight Engine.
Winnipeg, April 26.���The accident
sustained by Engineer George McLeod
on Friday last near Crallk on the
C. N. R. was caused by a single cow.
Cralk'a engine was pushing a snow
plow, and when the collision took place
the whole engine left the track and
part of the machinery was forced up
through-'the'bottom of the cab where
McLeod was standing. In addition to
this he was buried with the coal which
was hurled forward from the tender.
His leg was broken beneath the knee
and his foot was more or less crushed
and bruised. McLeod was taken on to
Wurman, where the Edmonton main
line train for Winnipeg was held for
him, and he reached the oity ahortly
after midnight on Saturday accompanied by Mrs. McLeod, who joined the
train at Humboldt.
The Injured man was at once taken
to the general hospital, where his condition was found to be less serious than
at flrst anticipated. Yesterday he received several friends, and Ib progressing favorably.
The fact that a single cow can cauBe
Buch havoc to a train puts George
Stephenson, the famous engineer, Into
the position of being a very poor prophet. When Stephenson wss demonstrating the flrst train that ever ran
he was asked what would happen If a
cow got In front of the engine. He answered: "It would be bad for tbe 'coo',"
but McLeod would probably say tbat
It would be bad for the engineer.
Dublin Complaint of Too Rigid Economy At the Cattle.
Dublin, April 26.���Tradespeople bere
compjain that the present lord lleuten-
and. Lord Aberdeen, does not make
things "go" at all. The fact that there
were only the smallest parties In the
vice-regal lodge for the punchestown
and Leopardstown races ls rather resented. It Is rumored, despite official
contradiction, that tbe rslgnation of
Lord Aberdeen ia only a matter of
It is Bald that visits to Ireland will
be paid next summer by the King and
Queen, the Prince and Princess of
Wales and the Duke and Duchess of
Connnaugbt. Should they come to Dublin, it will mean an enormous outlay
for the post of lord lieutenant of Ireland. People recall the visit of the
King and Queen many years ago, when
Prince and Princess of Wales, to Lord
Spencer, who, it ls said, spent ��26,000
(1126,000) on the royal visit. Those
were times Indeed.
Lords Londonderry, Cadogan and
Dudley all spent enormous sums during their respective tenures of offlce.
The parsimony ot the present "reign"
Is very much resented. There is not
the least doubt that the Irish people
like the pomp and circumstance and a
lord lieutenant who does the thing
Ex-Pugilltt Accused of Murder.
London, April 25.���"Pedlar" Palmer,
the ex-champion English pugilist and
another man, were arrested at the Pur-
ley railroad station yesterday on suspicion of having caused the death of
an unknown man, whose body was
found ln the -carriage of a train coming
from Epsom after the races ln which
Palmer and hia companion had ridden.
The man apparently was killed by
heavy blows, other passengers heard
the sounds of a violent quarrel coming
from the carriage occupied by the
Cobalt Mining Companiea Preparing to
Operate on Larger Scale Than
Cobalt .April 26.���Tbe Cobalt Lake
company la rapidly getting into shape
for the tunneling under the lake. They
have moved all their buildings which
were on the ice on the shore line, and
the bunkhouse behind the new offlce is
rapidly nearing completion. Sinking on
the nlccollte vein has ceased, aa it ran
at such a steep slant Into the lake tbat
It waa impracticable to follow It any
farther on the present working. To the
south of it the big silver vein is now
down 40 feet, and it ls proposed to sink
lt another 40 and then drift across to
tbe nlccollte vein and work the latter
from lt. A little leakage from the lake
Into No. 4 vein caused the superintendent some anxiety a little while ago, but
tbat has now entirely ceased. As for
the other shaft it Ib quite dry.
The latest find is on the south shore
near the McKinley-Darragh. A prospect
hole with hoist has been erected and
the shaft, which was purely a prospect
one, sunk 12 feet. At this level a ama-
tlte and calclte vein was struck carrying on an aasay 2,000 ounces ot sliver
to the ton. Development will now continue.
The City of Cobalt Mining company
has engaged Mr. William Donaldson to
act as their superintendent than whom
there are few men in camp of riper experience ln mining. He has mined in
the Klondike and all through the West,
and has the confidence of the camp in
the fullest measure. Prospecting snd
stripping are being conducted all over
the property with the result that another vein of sliver has been uncovered. Near the Buffalo line and to the
south of the Nancy Helen the vein was
flrst found, and now it has been strip
ped down to the road near which a
shaft ls being sunk. Another vein
crosses the original one here, and it is
on the Junction that the ahaft ls being
sunk. It is the intention of the management and Mr. Donaldson to push
the work with all speed, and there Is
not much doubt that before the summer
Ib far advanced the City of Cobalt will
be a shipping mine with some of the
richest ore ln camp.
The foundations for the new powerhouse of the Nancy Helen are now completed. There are 36 to 64 feet In concrete. Now the air compressor an the
100 two-ton boiler are anxiously awaited.
The Jackpot Mining company are hustling hard. The shaft ls now down 27
feet, but it has been discovered that the
little mac drill ls not large enough, and
a larger pattern of the Bame make will
be Installed.
The Conlagaa have pumped out their
ahaft opposite the Prospect hotel, and
are now rapidly sinking again. Explosions of dynamite throw small fragments of rock all over- the adjacent
town lots.
Buelow, While Working Abroad, Being
Undermined at Home,
Berlin, April 26.���According to reliable information received here the attitude of Germany toward the Italian
compromise proposition in the matter
of discussing The Hague peace con-
ference, the queation of.the limitation
of armaments, ia due to the international policy of the Empire. Prince
Von Buelow, the German Imperial chancellor, waa sincere ln agreeing wltb Slg-
nor Totlnl, the Italian foreign minister,
at Rapallo concerning the substance of
that proposal. But according to the reports received in Rome, Herr Von

Canadian  Permanent  Forces  Will  Go
Into Summer Camp At Petewawa���Long Mareh.
Ottawa, April 26.���It Is understood
that General Otter will have command
of the camp at Petewawa thla summer.
In Auguat there will be assembled at
this camp three-quarters ot all the permanent force ot competitive rank ln the
Dominion, for combined training. "A"
battey. Royal Canadian Horse Artillery,
will mareh from Kingston to Petewawa
as It did laat year, and will leave ao
aa to reach the camp by June 10th, and
will also make the return trip in the
fall by route march. "B" squadron,
Royal Canadian Dragoons, and "B" battery ot the Royal Canadian Horse
Artillery, both located at Toronto, will
march from that city acroaa the country
to Petewawa and also make the return
trip In the same way. "B" battery will
arrive In Petewawa at the aame time as
the battery from Kingston, hut the
squadron will not arrive until Auguat
1st. "A" squadron of Royal Canadian
Dragoons will make the long, inarch
from St. John's, Quebec, to Petewawa.
This squadron will cross the Ottawa
river at about Ilawkesbury, lt ls expected, and will pass through thla city.
Thus, two squadrons of dragoons of the
permanent force and two batteries will
conduct long marches through the oountry, which will give them an excellent
opportunity to get the training of outpost work, reconnoitring, etc., and the
time at Petewawa will thus be spent
ln other training. It will also give the
people, especially of Ontario, a chance
to Bee the regulars, since the routes of
the corps will be through varioua districts ot the province. Last year the
two batteries made auch a trip from
Kingston to Petewawa, and all along
the line the residents collected to aee
the soldiers.
The routes to be taken by the cavalry ami artillery on these marches
have all been mapped out b.' Col. Les-
sard, who, today, returned to Ottawa
from Toronto, where he was In command of the Royal Canadian" Dragoons,
to take Col Vidal's former postlop of
of adjutant general.
A battalion of 600 men of all ranks
will be drawn from the Royal Canadian
regiment, infantry, to also train at
Petewawa for three weeka in August.
This number will be drawn, 260 from
London, Toronto, Quebec and Frederic-
ton, and 360 from Halifax. The Infantry
will be transported by rail. It Is necessary to leave a force of 600 men in Hall-
fax, according to regulations, to be constantly ready for an attack. Thus the
garrison artillery and a portion of the
infantry regiment are left there.
Between Auguat let and Auguat 15th
all these corps of the permanent force
will unite In tactical wark, which will
probably occupy three or four days. Officers of the militia applying will be
allowed to take part In these manoeu-
vers, ln order to give them the benefit
of such experience.
the militia corps of the Ottawa garrison going to camp will be ln Petewawa at the time when "A" and "B" batteries are there, but the other corps of
the permanent force will not arrive until about August 1st.

Springfield, Mass., April 26.���A special to the Union from. Greenfield says
that the hotel, railroad station, boat
houses and from 100 to 150 cottages,
at Lake Pleasant, have been destroyed
by a flre which started tn one of the
cottages about 5 o'clock this morning,

Succeeds Id Forcing One
Day's Belay
Important   Statement   by   Acting
Premler'onGovernment'i Reason for Withdraw**.
(Special to The Dally Canadian.)
Victoria, April 25.���Yesterday's sessions of the legislature were again devoted to the Land Act Amendment*.
The moat important contribution to
the debate waa made by acting Premier
Tatlow who said that while lt haa been
the intention of the government to*
have the new royalty come into tone
on the 1st ot January, 1908, several
circumstance*, unforseen at the time of
the framing of the measure, have combined In auch a way.as to make lt
abundantly certain that the Increase of
the royalties on timber at ao -early a
date as January would work a most
serious and unjust hardship upon ���
very Important Industry.
Chief among these circumstances la
the tact, plainly aet forth ln an explanatory communication from Mr. Marpole, that, owing to the unprecedented
congestion of traffic caused by the abnormally aevere winter, which la only
Just now beginning to loosen its grip
upon the country, the Canadian Paclflc
Railway company cannot poaallby handle more than a bare 50 per cent of
the ordera to be filled by the lumbermen. Those In the know aay that Mr.
Marpole la over-optimistic even sin
these low figures, and that 40 per cent
ls more likely to be the extreme limit
of the railroad's capacity.
The altuatlon and its Inevitable consequences were clearly laid before the
government hy Thomas Taylor, member for Revelstoke, and by others, with
the result that the Hon. Mr. Tatlow
and hia colleagues, recognising the argument contained ln the unusual condition of transportation facilities brought
about through natural agencies, decided
to postpone the Increase of the timber
royalties. The proposal to Increase will
probably go Into effect early ln 1908;
and the acting premier, ln giving notice of the government's determination
on Wednesday, publicly warned all concerned to make their future arrangements to take the proposed Increase In*
to account

Jonn Oliver has scores] a triumph
-which he will no doubt recall with pride
to the end of his life. He has delayed
prorogation hy one day. The method
employed was a little coarse. It sounds
rather like the procedure of a townabip council or a rural school hoard
than a provincial legislature. The mem-
i>er for Delta succeeded after
several failures in raising a
point of order which the speaker
/lid not care to decide off-hand
Tke matter is of no importance and
-would hardly deserve reference of itself.
liut it ls a fitting end to the conduct of
the opposition during the session which
is about to close.
J. A. Macdonald began the session
under very favorable circumstances. Ho
had a faithful following, all men of
clean reputation, and, with the excep
tion of the member for Delta, of aver
age intelligence.
The overwhelming majority of the
government left no temptation to Mr
Macdonald to resort to the scandal
jmongering policy which disgraces! his following in the last legislature, and as
slated in disgusting the province with
the Liberal party.
Mr. Macdonald had an almost unique-
opportunity to retrieve himself, and to
establish himself and his party at least
in public respect. Ail he had to do was
to perform the regular duties of oppo
sitlon, by scrutinizing carefully even
measure proposed, and especially als
measures involving the expenditure oi
public money, and to endorse and sup
port all measures not contentious in
their nature.
Mr. Macdonald has done neither. His
analysis of bills has now no weight at
all. He has lost the confidence of the
legislature by his indiscriminate carping, and wearied and disgusted that
body by hla fighting over auch matters
as the wording of preambles.
The debate on the address in reply
to the speech from the throne was the
only part of the session's work which
is not discreditable to the opposition.
Through, that debate they behaved with
sense and moderation.
But from the moment of the introduction of the Better Terms resolution Mr.
Macdonald became merely an obstructed His opposition to that measure
was utterly Indefensible for two reasons. He had declared again and again
during the election campaign that he
entirely believed in the justice of Hritish Columbia's claim, and would Insist
on lt no less firmly than Mr. McBride;
and even In the legislature his only
quarrel was with the wording of the
The stand taken on the 1'niversity
Eudowment bill was even more reprehensible. After declaring himself in favor of the endowment of a university
Mr. Macdonald wished to cut the grant
In half, and subtract from the university's share anything that might possibly be of value.
No other interpretation can be
placed upon Mr. Macdonald's attitude
In regard to the matters referred to
than that he Is embittered by defeat
and determined to oppose and obstruct
everything. In this respect be has even
outdone his indefatigable lieutenant,
John Oliver. The House and the province lost Interest In John's extravaganzas long ago. They are fast losing

It Is an unpleasant fact to record
tliat not one Liberal had the mental or
moral Independence to disassociate
himself from the unworthy stand taken
by his leader on such questions as Better Terms and University Endowment.

party as represented In the legislature
at Vietoria will be "weighed and
The premier of Austrailla, Mr. Deakln, has taken the lead among colonial

honor would gladly have been given to

honors. Sir Wilfrid is quite justified

of Volcanoes in  Mexico and
Norfolk, Va., April _I5.���N'orfolk, Newport News and their neighbors are blossoming out in a sea of colur in Anticipation of the opening tomorrow- of the
Jamestown Tercentenary Kxposiiion. At
the exposition grounds the managers
and an army of workmen are getting
things in the best possible shape for
the opening. Although much remains
to be done���as ls the case usually with
all 6uch affaris���there will be more than
enough novelties even at the start to
interest all the sightseers, and the re
maiuing attractions undoubtedly will be
placed in position before many days
have passed.
Visitors in considerable numbers are
already arriving and the people of Nor
folk begin to get some idea of the con
ditions tha* will confront them during
the summer and fall. Governors and
tlieir staffs and many other public men
were among today's arrivals. The visi
tors wbo came merely to see arrived
by the hundreds. Though the rush came
like a tidal wave everybody was prompt-
and properly cared for. Bureaus of information provided quarters for all who
applied for them. The distinguished
guests were met by escorts and conducted to quarters previously set apart
for their comfort and entertainment.
.Many regular and state troops have
come in during the day to take part in
the military pageant that will he a feature of the opening exercises.
When President Roosevelt reaches
bere tomorrow on the yacht Mayflower
he will receive a salute from the larg
est fleet ever assembled in these waters.
Sixteen modern battleships flying the
United States flag and under the command Rear Admiral Evans are now anchored in Hampton Roads. Prominent
among these are the battleships Louisiana, Maine, VIglnia, Georgia, New Jersey. Rhode Island, Alabama, Illinois,
Kentuky, Ohio, Iowa, Connecticat and
Minnnesota. In addition there are six
first-class cruisers and a number of torpedo boats, making an aggregate of
thirty-six warships of the various classes, and constituting the most powerful
fleet ever assembled in the waters of
the United States.
Nearly a score of foreign warships
will participate in the great naval pa
geant. Among the vessels already here
or which are expected to arrive in
Hampton Roads before noon tomorrow
are the British armored cruisers Good
Hope, Argyll, Hampshire and Roxburgh,
the German cruisers Roon and Bremen,
the Italian cruisers Garibaldi and Ligu-
rla, the training ship Presidente Sar-
miente of the Argentine navy, the
Portuguese protected cruiser Don Carlos, the Austrian cruisers SankteGeorg
and Aspern, and the battleship Riachu-
ele, cruiser Barreso and gunboat Tarn-
ayo of the Brazilian navy. Later this
fleet will be joined by vessels representing the navies of France, Chile,
Japan. Denmark and Sweden.
The Virginian State building at the
exposition grounds is to be the scene
this evening of the first social function
that will help to make notable the opening ceremonies. The affair will be a reception by Gevernor and Mrs. Swanson
in honor of the visiting governors and
other distinguished guests.
The programme for the opening exercises tomorrow will be carried out as
previously announced. At sunrise tbe
Norfolk Light Artillery Blues, Btatloned
at the exposition grounds, will flre a
salute of 300 guns In commoratlon of
the three hundredth anniversary of the
flrst English settlement of America.
Upon the arrival of President Roosevelt In Hampton Roads a salute will be
fired by the United States and foreign

Again fhe world has boen startled by
Ihe news of terlfflc earthquakes���this

hundreds of lives. The great mortality is due, doubtleBB, to the character of

class of structure is extremely unstable
In the throes of an earthquake. They
usually have thick substantial walls and

Orizaba, altitude 17,176 feet on the line
between the States of Pueblo and Vera
Cruz; Popocatepetl In the southeast corner of the State of Mexico, altitude 17,-
540 feet; Collma, near thc south line of
the State of Jalisco, altitude 12,750 feet,
and several other volcanic mountains
of less prominence, but sufficiently
great to cause widespread destruction
In their vicinity should they resume op*
eratlons at uny time.
The cities reported to have been most
affected by those temblorea are Chil-
punclngo, Tlxtla and Chllapa, In the
State of Guerrero. These three townB
are Bltuated a few miles apart along
a nearly east-west line, which Is coincident with Ihe direction of the mountain range near which they are built.
Tho entire country, over an area of several IhoiiBand square milea, is volcanic,
tho great mines, for which southern
Mexico Is noted, being mostly in mules-
Ite or trachytlc rocks.
That the earthquake of the 15th was
most severe Is evidenced by the fact
that the seismographs ln universities
throughout the world registered the
Mexican disturbance. Not only this,
bnut decided earthquake shocks have
been reported irom many countries
throughout the world.
This great seismic disturbance, coming just a year after tbe terrible experience at San Francisco and vicinity,
has caused some apprehension among
the more timid whose nerves have not
yet recovered their normal condition,
but so far as has been learned, California has remained quietly unheedful of
the disturbances in the southern republic.
There are ln California several great
volcanoes���Shasta and Lassen are of
the flrst order. They are from 10,000
to 14,000 feet ln altitude,, and the entire northeast end ot the state Is covered with the debris from these great
craters and subsidiary vents scattered
at random throughout that region. The
cinder cone ln eastern Shasta county,
10 miles east of Lassen Peak, has been
In er iptlon within 100 years. Old snags
of Uie pine trees killed by the sulphurous fumes and hot ashes of the last
eruption still stand ln that field of desolation that extends for miles about the
vent. Inskip Hill, near Payne Creek,
in southern Shasta county Is another
evidence ot uncomfortably recent eruption, but there ls no sign that these volcanoes will ever again belch forth
flames, ashes and molten rock.
In southern California there are numerous craters on the desert, but al
though these look startlingly fresh, lt
is probable they have been silent several hundred years, and there Is no
need to fear so long- as tliey remain as
tbey have since white men first came
Into this country.
Incident of  Presentation of "Madams
Butterfly" In Toronto.
There are often little romances behind the footlights concealed from the
eyes of the playgoer. Miss Florence
Easton, who sang the title role ln "Ma
dame Butterfly" last week, as 1b known,
spent her girlhood ln Toronto; Mr.
Francis Maclennan, who sings the tenor
role wltb her, spent much of his youth
in Colllngwood. The two did not meet
In Canada, however, but became ac
qualnted and married abroad. To many
readers these facts are not new, but
there was an episode last Thursday that
gave equal significance to tbe scenes
of the opera ln which Madame Butter
lly caresses her baby. Last June a little son was born to Mrs. Maclennan at
thc home of tbe Maclennan parents ln
Colllngwood, Ontario. In the early au.
tumn the prima donna, owing to exigencies of her profession, was obliged
to say farewell to her little one and
leave it with its grandparents. For
over six months she travelled ln many
cities until the Toronto engagement,
which opened at the Princess theatre
on Thursday of last week. A special
train with 300 passengers aboard came
from Colllngwood. for the opening performance. The chief member of the
party was Master Maclennan, a sturdy
lad of 10 months, wbo was borne proudly up and down the train by his grandfather, doubly proud because of tbe
artistic success of bis son and his
daughter-in-law. When the train pulled
in at the Union Station, the young
father and mother were waiting, and
the first thing Miss Gaston did was to
seize Ihe child and run away to look at
her baby all by herself. And though
perhaps too young to appreciate the
fine quality of his mother's voice, Master Mclennan had an opportunity of
hearing "Madame Butterfly" with the
rest of his Colllngwood townsmen, for
he was a listener In the nearby dressing-room all through hla mother's performance���Toronto   Saturday   Night.

Prisoner From Rossland.
Constable Stewart arrived from Rossland at noon today with George Henderson, sentenced to six months' Imprison'
ment iu the Nelson gaol for intlecenL exposure.
Not  Only  Nelson.
Rossland is sufferins from an epidemic of Hoollcanism. Their offences
are similar to those of Nelson's young
criminals. Their conduct betrays an
utter absence of any concept of obedience or of manners, and in some cases
indicates   mental   degeneracy.
Hand Injured.
O. Hanson, employed at th*> Hudson's
Buy store, had his hand badly cut this
morning while cleaning a (ransom. The
transom fell backwards and the glass
cut his hand so badly that Dr. Havkey
was obliged to make several stitches in
tbe injured flesh.
Visiting in Nelson.
G. J. Thorpe, who resided In Nelson
for many years but now makes his
home in Calgary, is here on a short
visit. While Mr. Thorpe likes his new
home he says he till regards Nelson
as an ideal place for residence. He
will  remain here a few days.
Home  From the  Okanagan.
George Keys got back from the Oka
nagan last evening. He has been engaged in building the new boat that
was launched at Okanagan Landing last
week. Mr. Keys Bays the new vessel is
giving splendid satisfaction. After be
ing launched Capt. Gore too kail the
visitors for a trip down the lake and
the event was made a day of general
holiday rejoicing.
Painful Accident.
Arthur Allen, a teamster in the employ of the City transfer, met with a
palnfttl accident this morning at th*'
Mountain station. While loading lum
b;ir tbe team which had change of took
fright, and in his effort to check them
Allen got his leg under the wagon,
which passed over his ankle. While tht
ankle was not fractured, the bruises
will be very painful, and Dr. Hartin ex
presses the opinion that ft will be o
week at least before Allen is able to
return to work.
Police Court.
Two "drunks" appeared In the city
police court this morning. One was a
stranger from Montana, whose only offence was an error in calculation as to
the relative potency of Canadian and
American whisky. He was better this
morning and was allowed to go. The
other was no stranger and was not
slighted. He was permitted to help pay
'he city's debts.
Petition to P. M. G.
The special comntitte appointed by
the Board of Trade to secure signatures
to a petition to the postmaster-genera!
ior the placing of letter boxes in the
outlying and suburban districts of the
city, have prepared blank petitions, and
copies of the same have been placed
at the Hall Mines smelter, the C. P. R.
work shops, the Imperial, Commerce
and Montreal banks, and at C. Jiscko-
wicz's store in Fairview. AU citizen;-;
who favor the movement are requested
to tatje advantage of the opportunity
thus afforded to sign the said petition
at any of the places above mentioned.
The account of the method or burning ashes discovered by Mr. Ellmore
of Altoona, printed in The Daily Canadian yesterday, has aroused much interest in Nelson and several citizens have
declared their intention of experimenting. One has already done so with entire success. Capt. D. C. McMorris
tried the salt solution and found that it
worked perfectly. He not only had his
ashes burn but succeeded in using coal
that had hitherto proved non-inflam-
able. He reports that the mixture produced the greatest and steadiest heat
he has had from a stove this winter.
He haB not yet tried oxalic acid; the
simpler solution was sufficient. The
coal problem may be considered solved,
but there is now a new ashes problem.
Extinct volcanoes may now have a mar
ket value.
