CHINA MORE SENSIBLE
I -.--..
Prinoe Ching and Li Hung Chang Seem
Willing to Comply With Demands
'., of the Joint Note of the
Powers.
Pekin, Feb. 5.���The Chinese plenipotentiaries. Prince Ching and LI Hung
Chang, had a protracted interview this
morning with the foreign envoys.
Twelve names of prominent Chinese
officials were submitted with the request that China keep faitb with the
powers and punish the persons named
commensui-ately with their offences.
The Chinese plenipotentiaries replied
that China's earnest hope was to carry
out' fully the demands of the powers
and that she felt sure the punishment
which would be inflicted would be
satisfactory. It was discovered that
two out of the twelve persons named
were already dead.
In certain cases the Chinese plenipotentiaries gave reasons why the punishment inflicted ' should be banishment, and not death, asserting that
io'tbose cases they particularly desired-banishment only because the persons In question were so closely related lo   the  throne.    After a long con-
Li Hung  Chang   to   come   to   terms.
Prince Ching asked whether, providad
China showed  by   every means in her
power a desiie to carry out  the terms
of  the  jo-nt   note, the foreign troops
would leave Pekjn... ...
Tbe foreign envoys replied tbat
this waB a subject tbey could not discuss beyond saying that if everything
were satisfactory they - believed the
powers -would begin to withdraw the
troops early in the coming spriog, but
that tbis depended largely upon the
Chinese themselves. P'ince Ching and
Li Hung Chang said they desired to
know the names of the places where
guards wonld be kept for the purpose
of maintaining communications with
the sea in accordance with the terms
of the joint note. Tbey were informed
thai* tbltf- *tSttft a subject regarding,
which the military authorities had
more accurate knowledge than the
envoys, but that at present no determination had been reached. Prince
veSsation oh the subject of punish- Ctiing was anxious to know what prompt it was decided that the foreign,,,vision .-would be-made-to control the
envoys should draw up a full list of legation guards and to prevent tbem
tbi" accused officials, both national from disturbing business. He asked
anl provincial,with indictmentsspeci- if the guards would be allowed over
tymg the guilt of- each and a state- all parts of the city. To this enquiry
mejot of the punishment required the reply was given that tlie guards

U. S. TROOPS STAY IN CHINA.
Question of an Extra Session of Congress is Unsettled.
Washington, D. C, Feb. 5.���The
cabinet at its meeting today again
discussed tbe question of the number
of troops to be left in China. A tentative conclusion was reached, not to
augment or decrease the force now
there. Comfortable quarters for tbe
troops are now being prepared and,
unless conditions change, the present
force will remain during tbe winter.
Tho question of  an extra  cession is
still in abeyance, but  the opinion   is
expressed   that   in the event of   (Jon-
ress passing the   Spooner  Philippine
111 an extra session   may be avoided,
ipecially as there seems to  be  some
ubt whether the Cuban constitution
bill be adopted in time for  action at
an extra session if  called  soon  after
March 4.   With   the  Spooner bill unvoted upon  by this Congress, it is believed an extra session will be called.
-   During  the session of   the  cabinet
the nominations of  general officers of
tbe  army  sent   to   the Senate todny
ere discussed  at   length.   Some  re-
rangement of  the list aB proper for
ibmlssion to the   senate  was   made.
&n unusual course was pursued by tbe
Sresident with respect to the nomina-
on of Major General Nelson A.
Miles, to be lieutenant-general. Tbe
question of the nomination waB submitted to the oablnet and It therefore
was sent to the senate. No detailed
statement of the vote is obtainable.

the shortage affecting the loading of
lumbei ships at this port. Because of

taken advantage of the opportunity
and are establishing new camps.

Lieutenant George S. Beer received
a notification from the militia authorities yesterday by wire tbat he had
been appointed to assist Captain Fall
of the Strathcona Horse in the re-
oruiting for the Baden-Powell constabulary. The telegram also contained instructions to report by letter
to Captain Fall at Ottawa at once.
This means that Lieutenant Beer
will be authorized to act in Nelson
and district for tbe officer who is
raising the Canadian contingent for
the new constabulary force. This post
is a difficult one to discharge satisfactorily, but Mr. Beer's experience in
connection with the enlistment of the
three previous contingents equip him
most thoroughly for the task.

a British field marshal's uniform, tbe
Duke of Connaught in tbe uniform of
a Prussian regiment of hussars, and
Prinoe Henry of Prussia left Windsor
castle today in a royal carriage,drawn
by four horses with postillions, and
an escort of Lifeguards. They drove
to the railway station and.look train
for London. Tbeir'- Majesties were
loudly acclaimed by the assembled
crowds.
On their arrival at' Paddington station, they were met by an assemblage
of high court and army officials. Tbe
band payed "God Saye the King," a
procession was formed and tne royal
carriages were driven-to Marlborough
house." Emperor William, wbo was
very pale, sat beside King Edward in
an open landau. Tbe people lining
the route gave the German emperor
enthusiastic ovations. Tbey were especially vociferous at'Hyde Park and
In Piccadilly.* �����

London, Feb. 5.���Emperor William
has returned on board the Imperial
yacht Hobenaellern at ;'Port Victoria
on his way home after receiving from
the London crowds demonstrations
expressive of the appreciation of bis
visit to England. The emperor's passage through London was somewhat
marred by bad weather.
A naval parade greeted the emperor's arrival at Port Victoria, when all
the war vessels dressed ship, tbis being further evidence of the exception
al cordiality existing between tbe
two countries. Emperor William was
accompanied by Crown Prince Frederick William and tbe Duke of Sparta.
It was at Charing Cross railway station, subsequent to the luncheon at
Marlborough Honse, that the chief
ovation occurred. The-crowds, packed densely, cheered loudly as each
state carriage containing the German
suite passed, and shouted themselves
hoarse when behind a brilliant escort
of Lifeguards, Emperor William, King
Edward, Crown Prince Frederick
William and the Duke of Connaught
drove up In the same carriage.
Tbe Archbishop of York, Field
Marshal Earl Roberts, the Lord Mayor and many distinguished people, including the members of tbe German
embassy and a number of officers,
gathered on the platform to bid farewell to Emperor William. The last
was in the highest spirits; He talked,
laughed and shook hands with all
around and smiled continually. King
Edward waB equally cheerful. He appeared to be in better health than for
weeks past.
After an affectionate farewell between the two monarchs, tbe train
started out amid the playing of the
national anthem by the band of the
Coldstream Guards and the cheers of
the people. King Ed wand ran forward to take a final grip of Emperor
William's hand, which was held out
of a window. It was evident that no
one was better pleased at events than
the emperor himself. A number of
German detectives ceaselessly followed
on his footsteps and boarded the Imperial train before It started.
PRINCE GEORGE BETTER.

Dnke of Connaught, Prince Christian
of Schleswig - Hnlstein, Princess

A YELLOW  JOURNAL FAKE.
There Is Nothing the Matter With
King Edward's Throat.
London, Feb. 5 ��� Professor Sir Felix
Semon, physician for diseases of the
throat to the National hospital for
epilepsy and paralysis and president
of the Laiyngologlcal Society of London, asks the Associated Press to say
that there is positively no word of
truth in the story, published in the
United States, that King Edward is
suffering from cancer of the throat.
Sir Felix Semon wishes it to be called
a "scandalous invention and ridiculous
report." he hopes thiB statement will
be an answer to the cable despatches
he is now receiving from America.
He declares he has not seen the King
for weeks past and that when he last
saw him, his throat and general condition were never better. The physician adds that any one hearing the
King speak in public would know
in a minute tbat there is nothing tbe
matter with his throat.
NO LONGER GRAND MASTER.
London, Feb. 5.���In conformity
with the course adopted by the former Prince of Wales afterwards King
George IV., who resigned th3 office of
grand master wben he was appointed
regent, King Edward has resigned
tbe office of grand master of Free
Masons in England, which be has
beld since 1874. But he will retain
his connection with masonry under
the probable title of protector. A
special grand ledge will be summoned
on February 15 when it is expected
that the Duke of Connaught will be
nominated to succeed His Majesty as
grand master.
Provincial Constable Forbes, who
resigned the post of provincial constable at New Denver to accompany the
Second Canadian Mounted Rifles to
South Africa, was in tbe city yesterday renewing old friendships. Mr.
Forbes came through the campaign
without a scratch and in excellent
shape generally. On one occasion
while nnder shell fire a projectile exploded almost at Forbes' feet but he
escaped unhurt. He states that tbe
climate of the country is excellent,
and tbat the sickness from which the
troops suffered so severely was caused
by bad water. ForbaB believes that
there will be many chances for men
when the country settles and a man
can get up to the front, a proposition
now impossible without a pass from
tbe military authorities. At Pretoria
in November Forbes met S. A. Kelly,
formerly of Nelson, who was looking
exceptionally well nnd enjoying life
with the three bars of a sergeant on
his arm.
The matter of taking the residents of
lot ISO, gioup 1, Kootenay, Into the
city as requested by petition was laid
before the city solicitor yesterday, the
point at issue being as to whether a
lot could be divided for the purpose
of being added to the city. The solicitor stated that no legal bar existed, and the matter can now be proceeded with. The council is required
to pass a resolution, after which tbe
consent of the lieutenant-governor in
council Is secured. Then a vote of
tbe property owners in the section
seeking incorporation Is taken and if
the majority votes in the affirmative
the suburb becomes part of the city.
It Is stated that tbe residents in lot
180 are unanimous in desiring to
come into the city in order to secure
city water and some grading on the
extensions of tbe streets.
An action . was started in the supreme court yesterday which will Involve the title of valuable mining
property in the Kaslo camp. Robinson P. Briggs and Maims Augustine
bave brought action against the Trust
Mining company, a Spokane company
with registered bead office at Kaslo,
adversing the company's application
for crown grants to the Stars and
Stripes and 10 to 1 mineral claims,
situate on the south fork of Kaslo
creek in the vicinity of the Cork
mine. Among other points the plaintiffs claim that the defendant company fraudulently obtained certificates of work, alleging certain work
to have been done, when, according
to the plaintiffs' allegation, no work
had been done at all. Taylor tit Han-
nington are acting for the plaintiffs
in tbe action.

M. S. Logan, managing director of

touching the company's Morning
mountain propeity.
H. Richardson, secretary of the

The company is shipping a ear of high

mine and will bring down the week's
accumulation of ore on Sunday.

who recently bonded a property un

Canadian capitalists, is at the Hotel
Hume today.
THE   KASLO SMELTER.
Charles Plowman of Kaslo was in
the city yesterday on business. He
states that the Kaslo smelter proposition is progressing favorably and believes,in common with other residents
of the town, that the success of the
enterprise is now practically assured.
Mr. Plowman bas the Fletcher group,
a promising Kaslo creek property,
under bnr��i and will jr..badly commence operations in tbe spring when
the weather  conditions are favorable.
mining deal were closed yesterday at
Slocan City, where an option was
signed by the parties interested in the
Black Prince group on the divide between Springer aud Lemon creeks.
The option is to W. II. Jeffrey, consulting engineer for the Canadian
Gold Fields, who is now In Montreal
and will, presumably, complete the
deal during his stay there. Tbe consideration stipulated In the option Is
875,0U0, 10 per cent, of which is cash
and the balance in payments extending over eighteen months. In addition to the Black Prince claim, the
property included in the option consists of five other claims as follows:
The Dundee No 3, the Darius, the
Black Prince fraction, the Summei-
side and the Four Friends, the owners
being Messrs. J. and Leo Dorion, J.
C. Shook, D. Arnot, John Elliot.
Prank Sherry, P. Schomberg, C. Murphy and W. E. Bole. The Black
Prince claim is put in at $50,000. It
is a well known property having been
developed to a considerable extent and
been a producer for some time. At
present the claim is being worked by
Fiank Sherry on a lease, and a recent
consignment of ore to the Nelson
smelter gave excellent returns. " A
total of 500 feet of tunne'ling has been
driven and a large amount of ore if.
iu sight. In event of the deal being
closed, ns seems extremely probable,
the property will be worked on a
large scale and will undoubtedly take
n position among the richest producers of the section.
FROM THE ALEXANDRA-DELLEY.
The Gambs brothers came in yesterday from the Alexandra-Delley prop
erty on the divide between Six Mill
and Lemon creeks,where they bave
been engaged for several months in
contract work for the Rosalia, Washington, syndicate which owns tbi
property. Two hundred feet of drift
ing was run on the lead giving thi
mine considerably more derelopmen
than it had formerly. The tunn 1
was run to locate the ore body whiei
is supposed to exist somewhere oi
the vein. While this was not discovered bunches of very high grade ship
ping ore were found in such shape Oi
to indicate the presence of a chute.
It is thought that the syndicate will
carry on further woik, but that operations will be delayed until the snow
goes off as the conditions for working
are now unfavorable owlDg to the
deep snow. The Messrs. Gambs are
familiar with the development of a
number of big Slocan properties and
predict that the Alexandra-Delley
will yet be an extensive producer.
They came down the Six Mile wagon
road and report that at a point some
three miles from the lake a snowsllde
has taken out a considerable section
of the right of way. J. N. Gambs
had his feet frozen recently and the
eighteen mi'e trip on skis was so trying as to lay him up on his arrival In
Nelson. Both leave this morning for
Rosalia.
ST. EUGENE STARTS UP.
The St. Eugene concentrator will
start up tomorrow or the next day,
and a full force of men will again be
employed, says the Moyie Leader.
The company has signed a contract
with a firm in Antwerp, Belgium,
which will extend over a period of
several months. The concentrates will
be sacked, and the shipments will be
made up to the full capacity of the
mill. Before the shutdown the company had 275 men on its payroll, and
fully this number will again be cm-
ployed. There is little doubt but by
the time this contract is finished the
difficulty between the American smelters and the C. P. R. will be settled,
and another shutdown will be
avoided.

present stage of the development of
that district will answer all practical
purposes. This does not content the
Herald, hence its fulminations. The
Herald seems to forget that the government has practically an unlimited
area of undeveloped country to look
after with a very limited amount of
funds. There is not really enough
money to go round, and the various
districts must perforce wait their
turn. The Revelstoke people will get
their wagon road finished after a
while, and in the meantime they
should be more grateful for their
steamer.

Mrs. Carrie Nation, who is spending her spare time breaking up Kansas saloons with an axe, is creating
great excitement in the big prohibition state. She has sworn in a regiment of 400 exoitable women to help
her in her crusade, and fresh developments are awaited with interest. It
is said that Mrs. Nation's two husbands both squandered their fortunes
and subsequently died through drink,
and also another near male relation,
with the result that she has become a
monomaniac on the subject. The selling of liquoi is illegal in Kansas, and
consequently Mrs. Nation thinks she
is justified in making kindling of the
illicit saloons there. No permanent
good has ever been done by people
who use destruction of property as an
argument, and Mrs. Nation, though
evidently sincere, is doomed to failure. Her crusade, too, is not unattended with risk to herself. Those
who know Kansas say that her saloon
wrecking career is likely at any time
to be ended by a bullet.

satisfactory arrangements have been
concluded with regard to freight
rates, wbich, it will be remembered,
constituted oue of the chief reasons
why the concentrator Bhut down. In

I long her wait in Nelson. Her success
speaks for itself. Her character delineations are correct and her prophesies made in many different parts
ol the world have come true In numberless cases. It is not necessary
to canvass at length the foundation
upon which this knowledge of future
events is based. Observatiou of tbe
repeated occurrence of particular
marks or signs In the hand haB served to furnish the data for making predictions. Careful examination, through
identification and generalization
were the processes by which the laws
of scientific prediction were arrived
at.

A GOOD THING.
German Syrup is the special prescription of Dr. A. Boshee, a celebrated German Physician, and is acknowledged to be one of the most fortunate discoveries in Medicine. It
quickly cures' Coughs, Colds and Lung
troubles of the severest nature, removing, as it does, the cause of the affec-
tou. and leaving the parts in a strong
and healthy condition. It is not an
experimental medicine, but has stood
the test or years, giving satisfaction
In every case, which its rapidly increasing sale every season confirms.
Two million bottles sold annually.
Bosche's German Syrup was introduced In the United States in 1868,
and Is now sold in every town and
village in tbe civilized world. Three
doses will relieve any ordinary cougS.
Price 75 cents. For Sale by W. P.-

The finest English elm in New York
city Is on the west side of Madison
square. Probably the choicest tree In any
of the New York city parks Is tbe cedar
of Lebanon in Prospect park. It standi
on tho meadow northeast of Lookout hill.
The height, about 40 feet, Is remarkable
for this country, and it would bear no
mean comparison to some of the famous
ones in Ko\v gnidens, London. It is
claimed that there is only one finer cedar
of Lebanon in the United States. It Is on
the Huntington estate st West Chester
and Is about 00 feet high. These trees
are most attractive in the early summer,
when the old and new cones hang pend-
