New York, N. Y. May 2.—It is announced, says a special to the Times
from Tampa, l-'lu., that negotiations
which have been pending for three
months between the American Cigar
company, a branch of the American
Tobacco company, aud the Havana-
American Cigar company, owning the
largest clear Havana factories in the
bnited Slates, have been completed in
Tampa. All the factories of the latter
company will puss into the possession
of Ihe tobacco combine.
The Havana-American company, is a
recently formed consolidation. It owns
clear Havana Cigar faOtorlej at Tampa,
j Key     West,    Chicago,    New  Orleans,
New York and   llinghamton,  N.
capitalized at t:n million doliars.
Y.    It
As stated in the stock report for today
there is a growing demand for Rambler-
Cariboo stock around 2;, and the reason
is clear.   It is   known that tbe mine
management have completed arrangement with  the Everett smelter for the
dispos.ii of the  mine's  output for the
next two years and about 25O tons per
month will be sent out.   This  and the
fact lhat the mine is reported to be a
particularly good condition chiefly account for the demand in question but
in addition it ia recalled that Mr. Adams
the manager of the Rambler was (member of thc deputation which recently returned fromOttawa and as it isknownthat
tbe Dominion government intend bringing down a "bonus" bill very shortly
the Rambler should be in a paiticular-
ly good position for the next 24 months.
Whatever "The Barren" may be doing

Star Chief Macdonald is hustling shipments from tbe Le Roi.   Great Western
and  Le Roi   No. 2.   Unless   something
happens   before    Saturday    night   the
week's shipments should  be  unusually
high.   On Sunday last the Le Roi alone
sent out 4o car loads.1'     On Woday I.e
Hoi No. 2, sent  12  and the Le Koi 20
cars on Tuesday Le Roi shipped 17, and
yestciday   the  output  was    unusually
heavy,    made    up    of    Le    Roi 22,
I.e    Roi    No.    2     10, - and     Great
Western   10,   making   a   total   of   141
carloads in four days.     When it is remembered that that the new 50 ton cats
of ihe Great Northern were used it will
be seen how very heavy the output has
been.   Allowing an average of 35 tons to
the car,  which   is  probably  below the
average, as ihe  new 50  ton  cars carry
nearly that amount it  will be seen that
5000 tons were shipped out in the 4 days
mentioned from the 3 given mines.  The
shipments to-day were equally heavy, so
the camp's total for the week ia pure to
be very high   when   tbe  other shipping
mines are counted in.
The Le Koi shipping arrangements
are now working quickly and smoothly,
it takes just about one anda half minutes to load one of the big 50 ton cars including the time taken in moving the
car. The aerial tram way has improved
ita running qualities—timed yesterday
the 500 lbs. buckets dropped their loads
into Ihe big ore bins every 17 seconds,
showing how quickly the outputcan now
he handled.
In sections of the Le Roi yesterday
contract prices were again cut by the
management some 3c a foot.

A NEEDED CHANGE.
If we omit the BerieB of articles
of articles which appeared iu the
Industrial World last fall wbnrein
the War Eagle-Centre Star management was arraigned in no uncertain manner, there has lioen no
allusion to the troublesome state of
aftairs on "The Hill" by the Rossland press until the World appeared yesterday. This is not
creditable to the enterprise and
honesty of the Rossland press, but
it is an unpalatable fact. Here ia
a question which is being hotly
discussed from one ond of Canada
to the other, and in the town in
which the mines are situated
around which all this interest centers not a word or Hue has ap-
peored in the local papers. It can
hardly be wondered, therefore, if
the eastern'papers let the matter
alone. Had the matter been promptly aud vigorously pushed here a
very different state of affairs would
now exist. We believe that "the
good of the camp'' demands vigor
Ous handling of all such questions
and are greatly encouraged by the
prompt applause which greeted the
views expressed yesterday and pro
pose to place on record a statement
of tho facts which lead up to the
very unpleasant, slate of affairs now
current and to '-everlastingly keep
at it" until a change is affected.
There would seem to be uo good
reason why a marriage bureau in
the east with branch agencies
throughout the west should not
prove an immense success. There
have been three known instanoes
of recent date where happy marriages have been contracted in thin
city by meanB of an eastern marriage agency, aud it is said there
are two more cases peuding. Marriages are said to be made iu
Heaven, but there is nothing to
prevent a human agency from being the means by which the decree of
the Sovereign Power is carried out.
Without question this is so in many
human affairs, why not in marriage?

CITY FINANCES.
Considering the present state of
the city finances and the aspect of
the money market, to which the
city must go with its debentures if
it desires to raise the necessary
funds, would it not be desirable to
practice the most rigid economy?
In any case should not this be done
until tbe outlook for selling debentures improves aud improves very
considerably from what it is at
present?
It is: of course deeirabld to have
a team available for the boui. and
ladder wagon, provided the city
could afford it. but thu >.auger
which the aldermen and mayor afa
so afraid of appears to be over estimated. There are no lofty buildings in Rossland and it, would be
quite feasible to send back tbe hose
team in any cases where ladders
are required at a fire. There are
many matters oomiug up before the
council at the present time involving the expenditure of, what at
this time, is a very large amount of
money and it is absolutely necessary that the mo-t rigid economy
should be practiced, The ratepayers will insist on holding tho council down to "necessaries'' aud the
fate of any money bylaw submitted
to tho people will he sure unless it
is bitBed on this ground.
New York, May 2.—The transports
rfedgewick which has just arrived had a
rather curious experience. On tbo third
night out from Juan, about g o'elock in
the evening, every one on deck saw ■
distress rocket suddenly shoot up in the
darkness. The Sedgewick answered the
rocket and started to give assistance.
Captain Burns saw a faint light where
the rocket had gon< up about a mile
away. lie steamed in that direction
about two miles, but the light seemed to
keep its distance. After going five miles
out of his way he did not seem to approach any nearer to the light. Another rocket was sent up but there was
no answer. Suddenly the light in the
distance went out. Then some one Baid
he saw the outline of a ship about half
mile away. The captain saw It too. The
Sedgewick steamed over an hour, but
did not get any nearer the vessel. She
then lay to till morning, but when daylight came nothing was in sight.

MAY MEETINGS.
Thin is tho timo when tho church
parliaments nssemblo and discuss
the grave questions which church
assemblies are always confronted
with, as well as to arrange for gtlm
coining year's work. The Methodist conference of the Kootenay
district is now in .session here and
it is attracting unusual attention
among the members of that body.
These conferences are always productive of good, not only to those
immediately interested, but in a
leBS sense to the community at
large. It may be remarked in
passing that it is extremely desirable from a purely business point of
view that such meetings here
should be encouraged in every way
and nothing should bo left undone
We are carrying too large a stock of
fine photographic mounts and other
supplies for making photographs, and
most reduce tbe same immediately ; and
until samejis reduced, we are going to
reduce all prices nearly one-half. Don't
wait, but come now ; there is no telling
how soon these prices will be raised, as
we will have a big sale at eut h wonderfully low prices, aud they will only last
until our present stock is reduced. Carpenter & Co.

England is spending money
in Africa like water. Millions
and millions are thrown in
with the aim of controling the
dark continent. But Carlyle,
if he were alive, would be
moved to an unusual burst of
saturnine humor by the fact
that to Americans went the
contracts for the construction
of the Uganda bridges.
And from everv direction
similar stories come. In South
America, in Europe, in Asia,
in Africa, in Australia—everywhere are our business representatives and everywhere
are our manufactured pro-
ducks.
The ocean is white with
sails that are visible signs of
a great and broad expansion.
And so it is not to be wondered at that there are patriotic Americans who ask
why, as a business proposition, even if nothing more, if
the commerce of the world is
open to us on terms of merit
and competition, we should
spend monstrous sums of
money to gain the right to fly
the Stars and Stripes over the
Philippines.

States expansion by force of
arms; but there is but one
view in regard to the expansion that comes through manufacturers and business. Trade
has its victories no less renowned than war.
Day by day, from some ever
new and unexpected place,
the good news comes, in regard to every variety of man-
factnre, and from every quarter of the globe.
While our armies are fighting in the Philippines, while
we are guarding ports and
cities in China, while we are
holding absolute sway in
tropical Porte Rico and in
frozen Alaska, while we are
dictating to the Cubans what
kind of a constitution they
must adopt, our manufacturers are more and more widely
extending their peaceful
sway.
There are numberless examples which might be given,
but we need mention but a
few of those that have most
recently become known.
While our soldiers were standing guard at the execution of
officials in China, our manufacturers were bidding on locomotives for India. English
bidders asked $7349 each for
locomotives delivered in Calcutta. American bidders
asked $6908 each.
England rules India at immense cost, but to the Indian
officials who wanted Jocora-
tives that difference of £1351
on each one looked very
large, and so the order came
to America.

THE TAX ON COAL
Large Attendance in British House of Commons.
GOVERNMENT   IS    FIRM
Allotment of New Loan—Rothschilds
and Bank of England Take the
Bulk of £30,000,000 Loan.
Dondoa, Mav 2.—There was a large
attendance in the house of commons to
day tn anticipation of the discussion of
the new export tax on coal. The government is standing firm and is taking
strong precautions to secure a majority.
There is considerable excitement on
the Cardiff coal exchange today. The
paucity of free coal indisposes the selling at any price. Some firms are suspending their charging operation, pending developments.
Lord Oranborne, the foreign under
secretary, said rumors have reached the
government from various sourceB of the
intention of Germany to increase the
duties on steel and other goods. The
government was alive to the importance
of such information, but in the absence
of definite knowledge of Germany's intentions tbe ministry were unable to
make any statement in reply to the
members suggestion of withdrawing free
trade from Germany.
The chancellor of tne exchequer, Sir
Michael Hicks-Beach, replying to Mr.
Ohanning (Liberal) said thirty million
pounds of tbe new loan had been allotted as follows: To Ihe Rothschilds,
eleven million pounds; J. P. Morgan &
Co., ten million piuuds; the Bank ol
England, nine million pounds.

Our stock ot fine photographic mounts
and other supplies for making photographs is much too large and must be
reduced immediately. In order to do
this we have reduced all prices on these
goods one-half. Do not wait but take
advantage of this reduction at once, as
there is no telling how soon the price
will again be raised. There is sure to
be an immense demand, which will reduce the stock very quickly. Remember
these prices only last until the present
stock is decreased.
