Washington, April 11.���Tbe condition of war which has existed between
the United States aud Spain since
April SI, 18118, terminated today when
the last formalities in tbe restoration
of peace were performed by the exchange of ratifications of the peace
treaty. Coincident with this, President McKinley issued bis proclamation
declaring that the war was at an end,
and the appointment of Bellamy Stor-
rer was determined upou as Uuited
States Minister to Spain.
The principal ceremony of the day
occurred iu the receptiou room at tho
White House when the exchange of

Iu anticipation of the historic character of the event, members of the cabinet and ollicials prominent in the administration gathered at the White
House. Shortly before 11 o'clock the
French ambassador, M. Cnmbou, arrived in company with M. Thiebant,
tlio first secretary of the embassy, the
latter bearing the Spanish copy of tbe
peace treaty. Mr. McKinley cordially
greeted tbo ambassador and after a
brief exchange of well wishes, the formal ceremony beg.au.
The President stood back of the large
desk presented to thn I io/eminent by
Queen Victoria, while Seoretary Hay
and Ambassador Oambon occupied
places at the desk, around the central
group were ranged the cabinet officers,
and others already mentioned, ami
the ollioials of (lie household. The
Bowers of M. Cainbon and Seoretary
Hay were examined, a protocol concerning the day's ceremony signed,
mid other formalities concluded.
These preliminaries took some time
so that it was nearly i! :80 before the
actual exchange   began.
The signing of tho protocol of the ox-
elinnge occurred at li :28 p. ID., Am
bassador Oambon signing for Spain and
Secretary Hay for the United Slates.
The protocol was iu Frenoh and briefly
recited the circumstances leading up to
the exchange.
This cleared the way for the exchange itself, constituting the final
aot. The President took from the desk
the Americau copy of the treaty,
handsomely engrossed, bound in dark
blue morocco, aud encased in a black
morocco portfolio and handed it to M.
Oambon, At the sumo time M. Cam-
bon handed to the President the Spanish copy of tho treaty, also engrossed,
bound iu morocco and encased in u nia-
roon colored marocco box. Thore were
deferential bows, and each received
from the other this final pledge of
peace.
This exchange of ratifications occurred at !) :3b p. m. The President
was tlio first to speak.
"Mr. Ambassador ' said ho, "I
will issue the proclamation lit once."
M. Oambon thanked the President
for the promptness with which the
proclamation followed. This tuded
the formal ceremony, and after brief
fclicittaions, tho ambassador and other
officials withdrew. Seoretary Hay
took him the Spanish copy of the
treaty recoived today and deposited it
in the archives of the stato department, M. Oambon cabled the Spanish
Government of the final restoration of
peace,and made known that the American copy of the treatv will bo forwarded through tlm Frenoh Foreign
(Jill ce. The effect of tho action taken
today is to completely renew the peaceful relations, trade, official, diplomatic,
consular, and in all other ways between this country aud Spain
Beuuett Objects  Strongly to the   Proposed Redistribution Measure.
Ottawa, April 11.���Speaking at a
Conservative meeting in the City last
evening, Mr. Bennett, M. P., for East
Simcoe said that if the Conservative
members of the House of Commons
held the same opinions on the redistribution bill as he did, they would be
prepared to become summer residents
of Ottawa for the purpose of fightiug
to a finish this iniquitous measure.
Never was a more abominable bill proposed. But little was to bo expeoted
of this Government.
The proposed measure would be oue
so unfair that if carried, the Conservative party would not only be practically wipod out of oxistence, but the
iutorests of the country would be seriously imperilled. Even worse and mere
outrageous was the proposed division of
Ottawa into electoral ridings.

Rome, April 11.���The Pope today
received the members of the Sacred
College, who congratulated the Pontiff on his restoration to health. In
his address to the cardinals, the Pope,
after expressing gratitude to the deity
for bis restoration to health and his
thankfulness for the proofs of affection
from all parts of the world, warmly
eulogized the Czar's initiative in oall-
ing the peace conference, aud expressed
the hope that it would lead to the settlement of all disputes between nations
by moral and pacific means.
The Pontiff dwelt upon the ohurohe's
mission <if  pacification, "Not  only in
the domain   of conscience, but also iu
the public  official   sphere,   a  mission
which the church fulfills iu proportion
with   the   freedom     left   to   her   actions."  .Continuing, the   Pope   said:
"Every time tho church has interfered
indireotly in the serious   uffairs.of tbe
world   it  assured   the public welfare,
and has often stopped   oppression   and
���iftcured truces and peace treaties.  Civilization would have perished  without
rhe papal authority   to    vindicate the
-upremacy of right   over  might.    Op
u-essions   may   sometimes   embarrass
md curtail the powers of religion, hut
imid all vicissitudes the   church   pur-
���nie   its    beneficent    mission,    which
mbraces    heaven    and   earth.    Pure,
lumanitariaiiism would not assure real
md lasting prosperity     An attempt is
veuuaw perceptible to withdraw oiv-
lizatioii from the   influence  of Chris-
inmty. "     The Pope concluded   with
estow.ing bis benedietiou upon   those
���resent in a firm,   strong   voice.    Be
ides the cardinals a number of bishops
md other  dignitaries  of   the   church
vere present. The health of the Pontiff
was apparently excellent.

Manila, April 11.-5:55 p. m.���It is
upposed that many of the rebels who
attacked General MacArthur's liue ol
ommunicatiou and who were repulsed
y the troops commanded by General
Vheaton, were natives who entered
hat region in the guise of,friendlies
L'hey had seemingly secreted arms in
everal places and fired on the Ameri-
ans from the bushes at so close a
���imgo that they could lie heard talking,
lno of the Filipinos yelled in Eng-
Uh: "We will give you damned
\mericans enough of this before w<
re through." "
The rebels undermined the railroad
t Manlao, and nnspiked the rails in
heir efforts to wrock a train, while the
uilruiid gang participated in thn
ight. The work of tbo rebels was dis-
overed and repaired before a train ar-

Berlin, Apiil 11 ���Dr. Johannes
Raffel, the former German president
of the Municipal council of Apia at
Samoa, has arrived here and haa had
several long conferences with the officials of the German Foreign Offioe.
The Lokal Anzeiger today prints an
interview with Dr. Raffel, in whioh
he is quoted as saying: "The dtoision
of Chief Justice Chambers in favor of
the Tanu was partly due to the faot
that Mataafa is a Catholic, while
Tanu is a proselyte of the English missionaries. Mataafa is only King the
���aamoans will tolerate."
There has been   a sadden veering of
views upon tbe part  of both the Minister   ot Foreign Affairs,   Baron   Von
Buelow and   the  Emperor,  a Foreign
Office official   said   tonight to the correspondent of  tbe   Associated   Press,
"In energetic  language Germany, be-
nre engaging  in   an   investigation of
lie Commissions work, must insist upon
'be   American   and   British   Governments   unmistakably   disavowing  the
Ingraut violations committed by   Ad-
���uriil   Kautz   and   Oapt.   Stnrda.    In
he absence if  a   disavowal   for Ger-
iimy to join   tha   commission  would
e a mere farce." He added:   "When
he commission   starts, it  must  start
n the status quo, and not on a status
rested by  the illegal acts of subordi-
mtes in Samoa."
More energetic still is the aemi-offi-
nil announcement of the  Hamburger
orrespondent,   who   declares that  if
England aud Amerioa do not heed  the
liplomntic  remonstrances    made    ia
 don and Washington,those   remon-
t ran cos will b e fortified. " Adding :
"Germany insists upon receiving full
iiisfantion for the number of breaches
���omniitted iii Samoa." The tone of
lie German press during the last two
lavs, has been most bitter. Enquiries
y the correspondent of the Associated
'ress at the Foreign Office have elioi-
nd the statement that nothing is
uown of the alleged British unnexa-
ion of tbe Tonga Islands, and it is
iot believed such action has been
ikon,as it is claimed it would be a
ross violation of the Anglo-German
greement of 1886.

NELSON. B. C.
ONLY   BEGINNING.
Mr. Fowler was right when he
said at tbe Board of Trade meeting a
i ight or two ago that the fight over
the eight-hour law had only begun,
irritating as the prospect is, nothing
slse can be expected from the decision
of the Government to leave its enforcement to the report of the Koote-
any members of the Legislature. This
means that Ibe law and its operation
are to be resolved into agencies for the
manufacture of political capital, first
for tbe members themselves aud next
for the Government they support.
These members, it is said, are to
sound the communities affected, and
as they report the Government will decide.
This may have th* appearance of
Ministerial incapacity, but there cau
be uo questiou of tbe mischief and
danger of it. The Goverumeut desire to escape the responsibility of a
decision, and baud the question over
to the members. These will naturally
regard it in the light of their own
iuterest. As it will preseut itself to
them, the question has but oue side to
it: How can it be turned to theit advantage? As there is but oue side to the
question, so there will be but one answer to it���to encourage the miners to
stand out for the law, the whole law, aud
nothing but the law. There are more
votes among miners than amoug mine
owners, and the confliot which is
about to be precipitated cau only result in advantage to the members of
the Government. If it had not been
the purpose to make of the law a factor in the political game, the Government would never have dreamed cf
referring the matter of its enforcement to their supporters.���never, that
is, unless complete imbecility has over-
takeu them, of which there is not
overpowering evidence as yet.
What it all   meaus   is that  a disastrous labor dispute is  about to be provoked.    It cau be arrested by  the submission of   the   mine   owners   to  the
terms diotated by the working miners,
who will  prove   exacting   aud   deter-
iniued just iu proportion   as  thsy  are
convinced they have the support of the
Government and of tbat there   is now
little doubt or question. The men wer*
satisfied as they were; but as agitation
iB the lif* of the   preseat Government
it was necessary to   introduce discord,
aud therefore   this  fire   brand   of  an
eight-hour   law   was   suggested.    Th*
miners are encouraged   to believe that
th*y hav* been th*   victims   of   hardship, if not injustice, and as the Gov-
orument and Legislature have placed iu
their hands   a    means   to  ameliorate
lheir   condition   it is ouly human na-
i       that   they   should  employ it.    If
country is to escape a wholly n��ed-
,"*s and wanton disturbance, the mill
MM must either show themselves super-
i* i to  our   Proviucial   legislators,   or
* tJblio sentiment must declar* itself so
unmistakably opposod   to theso   inetb-
���j ,s of tbe demagogue that the Government     will   hesitate   over   the doubt
liuthor they   may not loso more support on tho  one   side   than   they   can
1 '.ssibly gain ou the other.
fundamental facts in human nature,
in their foolish and futile endeavor to
remedy the perversion of human in
stiucts by extirpating them; tru i
children of the mediaeval systems, of
mouastic asceticism, which they would
fain substitute for the freedom of a
regenerated manhood." But if wiser
than they are, they would cease their
effort to introduce prohibition into
Canada, iestiug ou the safe old maxim
that it is better to leave well enough
alone.
COMMUNICATIONS.
To the Editor of The Miuer:
Sir���We uoticed in a recent issue
of your paper a kick being made ou
uccount of the uight letter box being
totally iuadequate for the amount oi
mail matter posted over-night. Having a letter of some importance to uoai*
tonight, we walked over and found
the door closed, of course we knew
of the outside box but hardly liked to
trust our letter in it, as we could see
1 tters practically slicking out of tbe
bole, and they could, with e'se, have
been extracted by any unscrupulous
pcrsou.
We have been iu towns of.much less
importance than Nelson but have
in ver seen such badly arranged pos-
nl conveniences as yon bave lure.
The parties respousible don't seem to
ri tl.se the grave mistake they are
making iu not seeing to a matter
wbioh is, at preseut, a standing disgrace to the large aud important center, Nelsou. We are leaving for a few
mouths in a day or so aud trust when
we come back that the postal authori-
ti s will make a judicious investment
in lumber to rectify tbis, or, probably
some kindly disposed merchant will
provide a packing case to make up the
dilinqueucy if he were approached in
i proner manner. We remaiu, dear
sir. vburs truly, TWO CENTS.

GAS FOR NELSON
BIG OOMPABY WANTS TO INSTALL
A PLANT
A Proposition Will Come Before the Oity
Council at its Next Begukr
Meeting-
It a gas plant is not installed in Nelson it will not be on account uf a lack
of offers from oapitnl to spend the
necessary noney. On Monday evaning
the Oity Council laid on the table
nu offer from some English capitalists
to put in a plant it a franchise for
85 years were given. This the Aldermen thought was too long a period and
as the Company would not agree to
pay the Oity a portion of the gross
receipts the offer was laid over. Another offer from the same people will
probably be r'ce ved by the Counoil.
.Dr. P. E Doolittle of Toronto,
who has been in the City for some
time will make an offer to the Oity
Council for the privilege of installing a
gas plant in Nelson and it will come
up at the next meeting. He represents
the Economical Gas Apparatus Construction Company of Toronto, a gigantic concern with immense capital
and the work would be thoroughly
done if Dr. Doolittle and the Oity
come to satisfactory terms. The company has put in plants in Buffalo, Ottawa,' Montreal, two contracts of
two million feet each in Birmingham, Eng., 1,600,000 feet in Sydenham
and a complete one in Hastings, Eng.
Dr. Doolittle estimates roughly thnt
it would tnke $100 000 to place the
plant in Nolson, as a capacity for
supplying a Oity twice the present
size would be provided to make allowance for the expected increase in
the City's population. (Most of the
uioney would be spent in Nelson as
putting in a plant costs much moie
than the parts to be imported. Coke
would be mode during the process of
manufacture of gas and this could lie
used by the smelters. Tha works would
give employment to quite a number of
men.
speaking to The Miner regarding
the wisdom of the City, which owns
the electric light plant.Jadmitting opposition iu the lighting business, Dr.
Doolittle said thaa the principal re*i-
sou that his compnny wished to put
the plant in for was to supply gas for
fuel. All over America gas was supplanting wood aud coal as fuel. In a-
country as hot as this is iu summer
a gas range would oookjmeals without
raising tbe atmosphere of the house
to boiliug heat. Gas fire places were
very popular now as they oan be turned ou for a few minutes on^ a chilly
evening and supply a sufficient heat
aud a pretty blaze. Gas as fuel would
be much chauper than wood and householders could save a great deal by using gas. Of course the company
wouid be ready to supply lights when
ever ordered. An arrangement whereby the City can take over the plant at
a valuation at the end of five or ten
years will be cheerfully made by Dr.
Doolittle's company which expeots to
put   in a plnnt in  Bossland also.

EVERY NUMBER WAS ENCORED.
Enjoyable Oonoert Given By   the Chicago Ladies'   Quartette.
It was a very fair sized and most
enthusiastic audience that greeted the
Chloago Ladies Quartette in the Opera
House last evening. The favorable
impression given by the ladies on
Monday evening earned for them a
muoh better house last night and the
fact that every number on the programme was encored, eloquently
attests the complete satisfaction that
the ooncert gave those present.
The Miner has already referred to
the charming voices of the young
ladies and it is unnecessary to go into
it again except to say that hearing
them a second time only strengthens the
Opinion that they are artists, the like
of which is seldom seen in tbis country. The programme was a varied
one, simple melodies being intermixed
with the classical. The quartette ia
remarkably well balanced, the true
expression and delioaoy of shading being a feature of their singing. Miss
Bolkcom's readings were again immensely popular.
It is to be hoped that the organization will plaoe Nelsou on its itinerary
eaoh year hereafter and if they come
when we are not having a plethora of
concerts they may be sure of crowded
hoiisss. The Quartette appears in
Rossland this evening.

Tenders are being called for in Victoria by Arobiteot Battenbury for the
work of eroding a pressed brick and
terra cotta building for the Bank of
Montreal here. Bids must he in by

The Nelson Lacrosse Club nre trying
to organize a league in which all
Kootenay towns will be included. It
is too soon yet to prophecy whether
the promoters of the organization will
meet with the success they oertainly
deserve.
The snowy, rainy and sloppy
weather yesterday had a distressinj*
inflnence on bus ness wbioh was generally quiet. There has been a decided improvement in business lately and
tbe merohants are sanguine that the
next few months will keep them very
busy.
J. T. Fife of Toronto, who has trn
veled through British Columbia fo:
some years representing -eastern firm*
has arrive I in Nelson and will hereafter remain here, opening an office as
* manufacturers' agent. He expects t��
erect a warehouse shortly and will g>

The advance sale ef seats for tin
oonoert to be given in the Nelson
Opera House tomorrow under the aus-
iiioes of the Ladies Aid of tbe Methi -
dint Church has been large and a full

is a splendid one. Mrs. Brougham am*
Mrs. Parrywill sing and Herr Steintri

Mr. F. J. Starkey left last eveninp

Mr. Starkey's family will remain in
Nelson for some time.    *
The West Kootenay Brick and Lime
Oompany has reoeived tbe first kiln of
lime burned at the kiln opposite Kaslo.
It is a high grade article and shoul i
certainly give good satisfaction here.
The oompany expects to start its regular shipments this week. It is also
probably that; the manufacture ol
brinks will also commence this   week.
J. J. Walker is one of those up to
date business men who thoroughly
believe in printers ink as a medium
in making them rich. He attributes a
large part of the rapid inorease in his
biisiriess to'hls judicious advertising.
Advertising brings people to bis

THE ENTERPRISE DEAL
The legotiations Have Praotioally Been
Concluded*���Uew Map of the
Boundary*
-rert Lenient to the outside -world of
the immense extent of this liob
Hound ury Mining District
��   *   *
There have been rumors on the
streets and statements in various papers that the Enterprise mine had
been bought by the Loudon and B. C.
Goldfields' Company, these, however,
have all been premature for the deal is
not concluded yet, though it ia in* a
fair way of going through. Interviewed yesterday by a Miner reporter Mr.
S. S. Fowler, who is in' sole oharge of
the company's affairs iu the absence
of Mr. Robertson, stated that negotiations have been going on for some time
and that yesterday he was cabled from
London that a proposition recently
submitted by Mr. J. A. Finch, one ot
the chief owners, had been acoepted.
This, Mr. Fowler admitted, looked as
if tbe deal was now practioally
through. He would not disouss the
price of the property, but said that, bo
far as he knew, no money had been
paid over yet. The purchase money,
if paid, will probably be paid through
the Nelson office.
There iB a lull before the storm,
the Government has consented to listen to reason, and the eight-honr law
legislation will not be enforced yet for
a while. The deputation which recently waited on the Minister of
Mines in the matter has every cause of
congratulation, forthey have been as suo-
cessful as they could reasonably
have expeoted to be. Nobody supposed
that the Government would, or oould
under the citronmstancen, give an unqualified promise to make the law a
(lend letter; bnt tbey bave promised to
do now the law has passed, what most
people think they should have done
before it was passed, namely to find
out what the majority of those people
affected think in tbe matter and govern themselves accordingly.
What, according to the returning
delegates, the Government has promised to do is this. They will ascertain
from the Kootenay members what is
the wish of tbe majority of the constituents and govern themselves accordingly. If they report in f ,vor of
the measure the mine owuers will be
given a month or six weeks' notioe in
whioh to make the necessary arrangements to comply with the law. Mr.
Hume informed the deputation on
Thursday afternoon last, on the occasion of their second conference, that he
had telegraphed instructions to Mr.
J. McGregor, Inspector of Mines not
to take any futher steps regarding the
enforcement of the law until further
orders.
How the Kootenay members will ascertain the feeling of their constituents is not so olear���a poll of the districts oould hardly be held. The more
general opinion is that they will hold
a series of public meetings in their
constituencies which will be called
to oonsider the subject. The local
miue owners seem fairly well satisfied
with the present outlook, and are confident that the bill will be turned
down by acclamation. It is now thoroughly understood by the men, tbat
a decrease in their working hours also
means a decrease in their wages, and
and it is expected that they will pronounce in favor of the maintainence of
of the present regime.
James MacGregor, Provincial Inspector of Mines, arrived in Sandon
on Thursday evening's train, armed
with instructions and authority to enforce tbe amendment to the Mineral
Aot whioh provides that no man may
work underground more than eight
hours ont of every 24, Bays the San
don Paystreak.
He was met at the depot by a dele
gation from the Miner's Union and by
a number of mine managers, to whom
he stated that his instruction were to
���nforoe the law. Tbe announcement
oreated considerable exoitement
town and immediate trouble was apprehended.
A meeting of tbe mine owners was
held during the evening in the Virginia blook. This meeting was secret,
but it is generally understood that it
wuh resolved, in case the law were
enforced, to close all propel ties renre
limited, which included almost all the
mines in the camp. F. A. Wood, who
wub one of the delegates who recently
waited upon tbe Minister of Mines,
telegraphed to Mr. Hume in Victoria,
explaining the situation and asking
why the promise whioh he had re
oently given the delegation was being
disregarded.
This promise wns that then as Minister of Mines.hejwould not enforoe the
eight-hour law unless the pressure in
its favor became bo strong tbat he
oould uot ignore it.
As a result of the telegrams seut,
Inspector McGregor received a wire
yesterday morning to" await ^further
iiiHtnirt.mil. At a lute nour last night
he was still waiting, aud, as might be
expected, was altogether non committal as to the course he thought the
Government would be likely to take in
the matter.
In the conference, that have been
held by the mine owners the idea of
payiug $11. HO for eight hours work was
not entertained. Tlie miners, ou the
other hand, it is generally believed,
would not be willing to accept f2. 80
or "|I8 a day for eight hours work. The
enforcement of the luw would therefore mean a lookout or a strike, either
of which would be disastrous to thn
interests of the oamp and would work
a great hardship to both the miners
and mine owners.
���Another map has just been issued
by Mr. John A. Coryell, C. E., P. L.
S., of Grand Forks, of the Grand
Forks aud Kettle River Mining Divisions. It shows the mineral claims
located up to April 1, 1S9", in these
two mining districts. Mr. Coryell has
been a resident of tin Boundary
Distriot since 1887 and bas been able
to gather the information now given
on his map during thut time, from tho
many surveying trips mado for tbe
Governmeut and individuals. The
