that it was not the intellectual
achievements of a nation that decided
its fate but its belligerent Btrength. ���
" The Russian press hns liocoiue somewhat less sanguine of the success of
the conference, and now frankly admits that if Russia is not prepared to
ser the example of reducing her own
armament she cannot expect others to
do so.

WHY GEN. LAWTON RETREATEI
The Prisoners   Taken   Will   Probabl*
Bo Allowed to   Return Home.
New York, April 18.���A special to
the Herald from Washington says:
When shown a dispatch announcing
the recall of General Lawton, Brigadier General Seliwan, acting adjutant
generals said it, was in accordance
with the understanding at the war department as to the purpose of General
Lawton's campaign.
"General Lawton seut this expedition to southern Luzon," be continued
"for the purpose of destroying any
insurgent forces that might lie found
there to make a careful reconnaissance
of the territory and to spiead broad
east tho recent liroclaiiintinn of Iho
Philippine commission setting forth
the purposes of this government wilh
respect to the islands.
' '1 expect he will clear all the prisoners he has taken and they will he
sent to their homes. Hy this action it
is hoped ho will prove to the Filipinos thnt the Americans are nol as
barbarous as the insurgents pretend we
are, and that wo   propose to   treat the
Filipinos humanely,
"Why ir General Lawton needed al
Manila?"
"General Otis has not comment*
eated his plans to the department,
the matter being left entirely to his
discretion, The insurgent leader
has established his headquarters at
Sun Fernando, to the northwest of Malolos, and 1 suppose General Otis contemplates a movement auainst that
city. General Lawton only had 1600
men under his command and it was
of course, Impossible for him to divide
bis force Jhv Stationing detachments
in every village enpturod.
"His command will be useful iu assisting in the advance on Malolos or in
reinforcing the line about the city ot
Manila, It is possible that when the
lake rises General Otis will resume ibe
i-anipnigu iu tlie southern part of tlm
island. "
GREAT      BRITAIN'S      BUDGET,
ImmenseRevenne Raised Without, Burdening the Peoplo.
New-    York,    April 18.���The   Times
London financial correspondent cables:
The     most   interesting     event     of
this week iB the  government  budget.
As yon know wo urn leading the nations of Europe in cue fashion of enormous naval and military expenditure which one party in lhe slate calls
wasteful and a prevoootive of strife
nml the other precautionary. Dot what
may interest yon is tlm manner in
which llio chancellor of the exchequer
provides for the taxes. For the year
ending on Maroh 111 next he requires
��118,000,000 for imperial purposes and
the revenue for the past year wns
��108,896,000. So, on the basis of existing taxation, the prospective deficit.
is about ��4,600,000. He knocks off
2800,000 of this by suspending parr, of
��� he debt, sinking fond and another
3900,000 he looks for from some small
increase in taxation. The rest he expects to make good by tbo natural increase of the revenue, so ho will come
out at the year's end with a small surplus. Tliese figures relate to the im
perial expenditure alone, but wc
give between nine ana ten millionsjnow
in grants of aid io the munioipal and
county spending authorities, so that
the total revenue to be raised this year
approaches ��120,000,000, an amount
wholly unprecedented in our annals.
How long the national can go ou car
rying this burden without gi-.imbling,
no man can say, but it is a burden so
artfully imposed that as yet nobody
seems to think it is heavy. "Your financiers might learn a lesson from ours
in the art'of extracting enormous revenues from n very few taxes which
leave trade free und the citizens unconscious of the great part of the
weight imposed.

NUMEROUS    REQUESTS! THEIR    INSTRUCTIONS.
HOW TO   SOLVE   THE PROBLEM.
Slir   Andrew   Olarke's     Advice    On
Governing tho   Philippines.
London, April 18.���The Daily Chronicle publishes an interview with Lieutenant General Sir Andrew Clarke,
agent general for Victoria and Tns-
innniu, and former governor und com-
ninnder-iii-cliief of the Straits Settlement, regarding Amerioan policy in
lhe Philippines, Sir Andrew urges
thorough understanding of the native
character, and a government so far
us possible, by native  institutions.     g
the Americans in his opinion
should lirst discover Aguiualdo's
���sources of supply, aud then turn these
into agencies of trade for the settlement of the country. They should sow
ibe natives that Ihis would be a better outlet for capital, and thoy woul
(lms bo depriving the enemy, nf *iie
smews of war.
After (but, he continues. they
should buy out the religious orders,
with tbe sanotion of the pope, umi
.itinch the clergy in some way to the
administration securing (heir powerful
influence,
"Underlying every government,'1
says Sir Andrew, "must be the goon
will of the natives. Then, with carefully selected administrators, On
11 nited States would have nothing tl
��� ur from the Filipinos,"
The interview wus supplemented  by
.. report based upon   the  experience o! I
iiritisb  administrators iu   the Straits
Settlement. I

Statistics Gathered Regarding the
Bubonic Plague in Iniliu.
Bombay, April IS.���According to
statistics gathered regarding the bubonic plague it Is established that there
have been 360,000 deaths recorded In
India since its beginning These llg-
ures, however, ure undoubtedly far
below lhe actual lotal as the lictlves
am known to have concealed qriie n
number of deaths.
Bombay presidency Buffered the
most being responsible for 14,000 deaths
Without counting those which occurred
in the cily of Bombay which, with
Kurrachee, were the chief hot beds
of the disease. The deaths in Bombay
presidency are still about 1000 weekly,
With    die    return  of bol    weather
the plague, which is now the third
epidemic, is again disappearing, The

Ottawa, April IS.���The delegation
representing the Dominion Trade und
Labor congress waited on Sir Wilfrid
Laurier this morning to ask for various
legislative enactments designed to improve the condition of labor in Canada. It. includes Messrs. G. W. Dower, T, II. Fitzpatvick aud Chas.
March of Toronto, Wm. Keyes of
Montreal, and A. R. Macdouald of Ottawa. The delegation wus introduced
by Cowan M. P . and Hennv, M. P.,
of Montreal. Mr. Dower, the secre
tary of the Congress briefly explained
what the deputation desired. He lirst
mentioned (ho necessity of excluding
Chinese und J. panose. Ho said tliese
people were seriously injuring (be
white labor people of British Columbia and said (hal.lhoy would soou cros.'
i'lie mountains an be a menace to the
whites ou this side. To effect the
exclusion he advocated a poll tax ot
$600. Mr. Dower said that union laboi
should be legalized, the Crow's Nesi
Pass investigation evidence published
and a bureau of labor statistics established. Such a bureau exists iu the
United States and at stated period:-
���rutistics ure published.
Mr. Dower said lhe laboring peopll
*if Canada also desired Ihe introduc
tion of an eight   hour nay  on all Gov-
 invent -*vo**ks, and   the   labelling   oi
prison made goods in order that buy
**i*s should know what they were pnr-
���iiasiiig With regard to the Alien
Labor law, Dower said there may be a
.-rent deal to object to in its present
form. What laboring men wauled wis
i contract laboi    law.    At    present it
��� inly applied to the United States, and
ii'of.lo could be brought from Eng land
md Scotland uuder contract and thus
mfairiy enter into Competition with
"anadians. An amendment to (he
inpyright law to provide (hat all books
I'rom typesetting to binding must be
nade entirely in Canada was also ask- *
d for. Dower concluded by asking
(or the enforcement of the law respect-1
ing the   inspection   ot   the   gear   and
ackle used m the unloading of ships
)Wing to the lack of inspection man*,
lives were lost.
Mr. Keyes   in   talking   of the label
ing of prison made goo i ssaid there was
io complaint of prison work if no ma
ihinery   was   used   and   the  convicts
were mude to   work   only with   theii
���lands.    Maodonald   replied     that   nil
.ho departments should adopt an light
Hour day and day labor.    He said    tin
ioveriimcnt had become    popular   i
Ittawn    tbr* ugh     ihe   department;
idoptiug day labor.
Sir Wilfrid in replying to tbe dfipn-
a'ion took uu the various requests
i'1-inlim. He seemed disposed to
dightly favor increasing (he Chinese
noil lax but objected to a Japanese tax
,v bom be said were progressive, and
,vere allies of JBritnin. He hoped the
Senate would not again defeat the 001
o legalise union labels and said the
lemand for printing of the Crow's
Nest Pass evidence wus a moderate
nie. He regretted Hint the bureau of
statistics was not in operation, and
-md he would draw the attention ol
ibe Minister ot Agriculture to it Sir
iVilfrid expressed his gratification tbat
��� lay labor as ad* ptcd by some of the
departments wns ���uii'-fnetnry, and in-
liinated thai its application could
gradually he extended, With regard lo
the Alien Labor law, Laurier pointed
out ninny o triplications in conn* ition
.villi it, und  sind   the    International
'onl'ereiice was endenvnrillg to arrive
il a uniform law. He said of course
such a law could not apply to Britain.
Sir Wilfrid also pointed out the
dilliculties   in    connection      with    Ibe
copyright requests and said the Government wns moving in the diieetion
desired though nol ns far as asked for.
The Premier concluded by saving
he saw no reason why 'he law respect- j
Ing gear and tackle inspection should I
not lie enfoieed und said he would bring |
it to the attention of the proper mill'
tor.

Severe Cross Examination of
Prosecution's Witness
LOANED IT TO 0THEES
Bo3s Quay Repaid his   Own  Loans,
District Attorney OlaiuiB His
Case is  Proved.
bnt
Philadelphia, April 18.���Tbe defence had its iuuings today in the trial
of Senator yuny and it made the most
of its opportunity. Expert Accountant
Meyer Goldsmith the commonwealth's witness was under a scorching fire of cross examination all day,
aud the result ' thereof justifies the
opinion that the network of evidence
brought out by tbe prosecutiou from
tho      hooks of        the       broken
bank (euding to show any guilty participation by Senator tjuuy in the unlawful use of the bauks money was
very much shaken by the admissions
(he witness was compelled to make
under tho skillful questioning of Attorney Shields.
Nearly all of the apparently damaging entries attached to Senator
(Quays' name or account in the bank
���ts testified yesterday wero explained
away or greatly modified by the statements of tho commonwealth's own
witness. Taking up (he allegations
that Quay had borrowed $186,000 during the "Settlement periods" ending
October ill, 18117, the last settlements
before the bank closed, Mr. ShioldB
forced from Goldsmith, piece by piece
fncts tondiiirt to show that in nearlv
every instance the amounts charged to
Senator yuay were really loans to other
persons, politicians mostly, for whom
Quay endorsed. Whore there wns a de-
Unite loan to Senator Quay tho repayment was clearly proven.
In this connection District Attorney
Robez Rotliermel claims that he has
eh urly establish'd the fact wbioh be
���started out to Drove, namely that
1300,000 of the state deposits in tho
aank waii set aside for the use of Sena-
tcr Quay, whether he used it himself
or loaned ir to others is uot material
in proving the conspiracy.

ENTANGLING ALLIANCES.
It was many years ago that Liber*.1
leaders like Brown, Blako and Mai -
kenzie proclaimed the priuciple tbirt
there should be no entangling alliances between Provincial Governments
and the party in power at Ottawa
That was a good, sound principle, ami
mauy a castigatiou was administered
to Conservatives for their supposed violation of it. As one after another ol
the Provincial Governments becan e
Liberal in complexion, enthusiasm for
(he principle gradually lessened, although Brown and Mackenzie diid
stanchly adhering to it, and Blake, if
be were heard, would no doubt maintain its righteousness as strongly, as
earnestly. aud as sincerely as ever.
The leaders of today, however, pay r.o
beed to it. They are in close alliam e
with all Liberal Provincial Governments; working together for the continued supremacy ot the Liberal
pnrty, nnd, truth compels us to add,
not too scrupulous in the methods employed to compass their end.
A Liberal Provincial Government ia j
just now playing what is   intended   to|
be a deep game for the   mutual advantage of itself and of its friends at Ottawa;     The   Manitoba   Legislature,   in
play this game scarcely makes good
its title to be called patriotic. The
News adds this interesting bit of iu-
forniatiou :
"Prom Marcus to Midway tho Corbin road will cost not more than $1*-!, -
500 per milt), and it, will reach the
same point which it costs the C. P.
R.. $82,000 per mile to reach. Mr,
Corbin would enjoy all the traffic and
privileges at $9,000,000 less thau the
Columbia & Western is compelled to
expend, and at the same time possesses
the advantages of light operating expenses through having no steep grades,
And it is a fact, that if the C. & W,,
were, today, permittted to build from
Trail to Greeenwood via the Columbia Kiver and Kettle river, it would
be a greater advantage to build such a
road, than it would be to accept tho
present road from Hobson to Midway
as a gift, because of the heavy operating expenses. In view of these facts,
would the Dominion Government uot
be granting Mr. Corbin, by far an
undue advantage?"
The ritualists in England tbe
men of "lawlessness," have been dealt
a facer by uo less a body than Parliament itself. It has carried the following resolution by a vote oi 200 to 14 :
"This House deplores the spirit nf lawlessness displayed by certain members
of the Church, and expresses the hope
that hor Majesty's Ministers will not
recommend any clergymen for ecclesiastical preferment unless satisfied that
he would loyally obey the bishops and
the prayer-book, and obey the law
as decided by the courts whieh have
jurisdiction in eoolesiastioal matters."
This last clause of the resolution goes
t * tho root of the matter, as the ritu-
nlists profess to be superior to the interpretation ot the courts. The check
does not come (oo soon, as those "honest but mistaken ecclesiastical theorists, '.' as Mr. Balfour designates
ham, wero doing infinite harm to the
oLuroh.

the midst of a session that might   ens- , ^ioe is uot responsible for the delay
liy have been closed by   this time, ins,      ...    *..���...,..,���
adjouruad   to   the   16th of June.    The j
reasons  giveu for this unusual  course j  	
are, that spring is ou and members
���want to get homo, that two members of
the Government are required at Ottawa to press the claims of the Province
to the School lands, and that some important railway legislation had still
to come up that would require lime
for consideration. Why any or all nf
this should involve au adjournment oi
two months is uot in tho least obvious
to the political mind that is without
guile. It is merely intended as an electioneering manoeuvre. The trifling
over the revision of Winnipeg voters'
list is a part of the game
Spring has come before   in Manitoba
and caught the Legislatuie   iu session,
but there was uo two months adjournment.    The   members   merely hurried
up their work and   got home, as   they
could have done in   this case.    No one
is required at   Ottawa   in  couuection
with tho School lands ; that   is  one of
tho thinnest of pretexts.    Aud if  personal solicitation is necessary the Fed-
eiai Ministers   are   not   worried   over
the cares of the sessiou.    The timo has
boon wheu the   Manitoba   Legislature.
uniler substantially the same Ministerial inllueuce as   today, could   pass the
most important railway legislation tbo '
the twinkling of an eye.    Consideration
was uot essential, and the present Legislature is uot   of the kind to   dispute
points with its leaders ;it will swallow '
anything with admirable readiness ami
docility.    No, these   are   but   excuses
111 a 1111 fact 11 red   for   the   occasion.    Tin*
fact is both Houses are about to beilis
solved soon   after   the   elnse   of   their
respective sessions, and the Provincial
leaders are  working   to  carry   Manitoba for both iu the   general  elections
to follow.    A   great   display   will   be
made over the School  lands, and Uttu
wa  will profess the most kindly interest and make   thu fairest of promises��� I
for next   session.    That will help   the
good work along, for   nothing rejoices |
the heart   of   a   Manitoba   elector  so j
much as the prospect   of getting something,    There   is to  be some   railway
legislation,   and tho nearer it  can   be ;
brought   to   the   geueral election   the
morn serviceable   it   can   be   made  in
the   campaign.    A Federal bonus will
entitle   the   Ottawa   people to participation in the   public   gratitude.    And
meantime the Winnipeg voters' list   is
being delayed,   for  an   election     now   copy:
would mean   defeat   for   the   Laurier
candidate, and that would be bad. Entangling alliances are   no   longer   the
work of the Kvil One,

The choice wns soou narrowed down
to between New Denver and Silverton
but the difficulty of making the choice
was by no means thereby lessem *1.
The friendliest, feohngs are entertained
towards both these towns by the Nelson boys, and both offered substantial
inducements.
Such being the case, the matter naturally came down to the basis of which
town would make the best ofer.
Both were liberal iu their offers, and
finally New Denver promised $160 for
the hub and bub race, $125 for the
base ball match and the same for the
lacrosse match. It was further represented tbat the Sandon teams would
compete in the various sports. Accordingly ou Sunday last,representatives of
the various Nelsou teams met at the
Hume Hotel, and, after thoroughly going iuto the matter, decided that all
three teams would go to New Denver
on the 24th of May. The matter was
for the time considered settled, but on
Sunday evening delegates both from
New Denver and Silverton appeared and
the matter was reopened, though on
rather a diffeient basis.
The Nelson meu had promised to go
to New Denver on the Queeu's birthday, and therefore to New Denver
they had to go. Still, there appeared
to be no reason why they should nol go
to Silverton also, if the matter could
be arranged. Silverton and New Denver are but four miles apart, and
strong efforts were made to induce the
two towns to bring about a joint celebration, the games to be held one day
in one town, and the next in the
other A conference was held on Monday to this end, and another yesterday. Unfortunately difficulties presented themselves as each town naturally wants to have its celebration on
the 24th. If Silverton will consent lo
havo its games on Ihe 25th the difficulties will all be Btnoothed over nnd
both Nelson and Sandon will gladly
attend. Otherwise iu view of their
promise the Nelson leanis will not he
able to visit Silverton on this occasion.
Although contradictory reports are in
circulation it appears to bo tolerably
certain that the Sandon teams have do
cided to compete at New Denver on
the 24th.
Tho Silverton representatives in iho
city havo retusod to accept tho I wo
days celebration proposition but as lhe
Nelson organizations bave finally decided to go to New Denver on the 2 lib
of May it, is probable that Silvenon
will yet fi*.'. into line by having a celebration on tha   25th.
THEY WANT  TO   CLOSi: EARLY.
Movement   is   Meeting With   Almnt-t
Unanimous Support.
Tho enrly dosing movement, oi in-
nienoed by the moi-chants* promises to
be very successful and the chances are
good for all the retail stores in the
Oity closing at 7 o'clock each evening
after May 1. Yesterday considerable
progress was made iu seeming the signatures ot retailers to tho agreement
to close early. The hardwarers have
agreed to close nt 6:80, and the tailors,
boot and shoe,drygoods,and furnishing
houses have signed. A couple of grocery firms still stand out but thoir signatures aro expected today and Ihn
movement will be made general. It is a
noticeable fact that in Nelson thf, employers were the ones to take the
initiative whereas the employes in
other citios where the movement has
been successful wero the ones to
start tho ball rolling.
Iu all probability a retailer's association will be organized in Nelson. It
hiiN been mooted and tho merchants
view it with favor. Tho object will
be to preserve the interest of all re-
tailors. One of tho first moves will
likely be in the direction of having an
early closing by-law,passed in Nelson
which will force all stores to look up
at a certain hour. The Council can
not puss such an ordinance without
authority from the Provincial Government aud an effort will be made to
have the Lieutenant-Governor pass an
Ordor-iu-Council giving the necessary
power.
ENTKHRPISING FERNIE.
A. G. McKerrey, representing the

Free Press reg-irding his visit to that
town shows that the citizens are very
entorprising.
Mr. A. U. MoKenny, representing
the Guttn Percha and Rubber Manufacturing Oo., of Toronto has heen in
town for the past few days, und has
induced the business men of Pernio
to procure tlOO or more feet of Maltese
Cross, 2}^ inch 4-ply rubber lire
hose, tho best hose in the world, two
Maltese Cross rubber play pipes, a hose
reel, a Siamese coupler and a dozen
spanners. The necessary money lo
purchase this outfit, about $Nf>(), was
subscribed by the business men in less
than two hours today. Of Ibis amount
the Coal Company contributed tlie
handsome sum of $250. aud have signified their willingness to put in all
the neccssury hydrants to give ample
fire protection. The readiness with
which this largo sum of money was
subscribed is ample evidenoe of lhe
prosperity of the town, nnd although
it is understood that when tho town
is incorporated the money thus secured
will be returned  by   the  corporation,

The Library Association has changed the date of its ball to Friday May
12. It will bo held in tho Opera House
aud promises to bo a very enjoyable
event. As the tickets havo been placed
at the very low figure of $1.50 for

a nee should be large.
The next attraction at the Nelson
opera House will be the Metropolitan
Opera Company who will play a return engagement commencing on the
97th inst. If $1.50 is not charged
for the best seats as they were bet',,re,
the company whioh gave good satisl'ac
tion should do vory good business.
Aid. Beer left yesterday to look after
his interests in the Lardoconutry. He
will be back in a few days and as it
will take some days to unravel the
banking tangle it is not likely (bat
a special meeting of tho Council can
be held before bo returns. But this
would bo a great opportunity.

W. M. Branch returned a few days
;t��o from the Golden Wedge properly
ut Lemon Creek. The Oro Com puny
has done f60,000 worth of work in
connection with its towusite and the
Golden Wedge and the prospects are
that the latter will prove to he one of
the richest mines iu the country. Mr.
Brasoh was the locator nf the property
autl was also the first man to lind free
gold ou Lemon Greek. For 20 years
be hud heen prospecting around silver
camps hut he got tired of that, came
to British Columbia and started np
Lemon Creek with a pan. pestle and
mortar on the still hunt for gold. Some
people hinged at him hut he kept at it
and found traces of pure gold at tin
first attempt. He has prospected ovei
the Lemon Creek district for the past
four years and has located sonn
splendid claims. He has a group ol
eight or ten claims adjoining tin
Golden Wodge and will eommeuci
next month to do asssossuiont work on
them. Mr. Brasch expects that In
and his partners ��� will spend at leasi
$5,000 on opening up properties title
summer. He looks forward to a great
deal being done ou Lemon Creek fhi-
season.
* *   ���:
D. J. McNally, the mill builder is
in the City after a visit to Helena,
Mont., and othet mining centres. H*
put in the mill for the Uro company
at the Golden Wedge some weeks tig*
and speaks in the highest terms ol
the niachiueiy. This will be one of th*
few in this country of Canadian
manufacture, it having been made by
the. Jenks Machine Co., of She* -
brooke, Quebec. Mr. McNally has
handled United States mills alljiis lifi
and was somewhat surprised to find
that the Canadian article was fully up
to anything ho had ever seen. He
thinks this will be a big year for mining around Nelson as indications aie
that a great deal of work will be commenced as soon aa the snow leaves the
ground.
* .*   *
The snow is fast disappearing from
the hills surrounding the camp 01
Brie and prospectors aud claim owner*-
aro coming in on every truiii to prospect and represent claims already located. The properties which have bet i,
working the past winter have so fan
exceeded the fondest hopes of tin
owners that everybody who has a surface showing of any merit will tit
more thau representative*) work upoii
them the following summer. Witli u
first class wagon road up the north
fork of Salmon it will enable the prospectors to reach their claims with provisions and tools at a much re lueed
figure iu comparison to previous years
Many of the old time prospectors anticipate shipping surface ore this summer. As the principal value of tin
ore of this camp is oopper they want
to reup a bountiful harvest while cupper is at so high a figure. Ure will b<
shipped this summer from the Noii'l:
Fork. Belle Kosa, Jupiter, \V. J. Bryan, Belle Singlehurst, Eva, Armstrong, Antonio and the two regulai
shippers���the Second Relief and tin
Arlington.
The development of the two last
mentioned has been kept up constantly
all winter with the exception of tut
weeks ou the Arlington. Owing tt
the use of strong copper water frtui
their shaft the boiler tubes bad to lu
replaced and necessitated a close dow i.
for two weeks. They aro, however,
working again anil have reached lln
depth of 42b feet. This work hi;; al*

eight mouths and at present in the hot
torn of the shaft, which is six by uint
feet, thoy have a faoe of solid ore riming on an average of six per cent, copper and one and one-half ounces ol
gold to the ton. This property staitec
on the surface with a broken up mas*
of qnartz and through the extremch
good engineering of Manager M. A
Bucko they fouud lhe vein at ahont n
feet depth, which was at that point
about in inches wide. Good, pel-sever
ing ami hard work put the shaft to tin
100-foot level, where the vein hat'.
gradually widened to the width ot li
inches. The vein has been wideninj
until now the ore is over six feet wiil,
and tho value is improved by lln
greater percentage of copper,
This improvement lms, been identi
