Germany Still Supports King
Mataafa.
PARTITION ABANDONED
Diplomatic   Conferences   at   Washington
do Not Seem to Battle This
Dispute.
Washington, March 27.���Tbe lively
discussion of Samoan affairs in the
foreign press seems to be the sequel to
the developments of last week, which
have not been followed by any material change in the situation Secre
tary Hay has held further conferences
with Ambassador Von Holleben of
Germany, and Sir Julian Pauncofote,
the British Ambassador, but these, it
is stated quite positively, have not
advanced the Bubjeot toward a settlement.
The Berlin report iu one of the Loudon papers to the effect that the Germans had determined to abandon the
support of King Mataafa in order to
induce tbe Uuted States to withdraw
chief Justice Chambers, is not home
out by any propositions made here.
It is the view of the stato department
tbat if the Germans withdraw support
from Mataafa, the trouble would practically be over, as his kingship is at
the botom of the present affair. Thus
far, however, there has beeu no intimation that tbe Germans wonld abandon Mataafa. On the contrary, the
understanding has beeu that die connection between Mataafa and Malieto
would go over to await fuller information, the only action in the meantime
being restrioted to the controversy between the German, Amerioau and
British consular and munioipal officers.
Berlin, Maroh 27.���The National
Zoituug sayB the German proposal for
the partition nt the Samoan islands
may be regarded as abaud. iif ' .. .* iug
to the little response, particularly from
Great Britaiu, received on the subject.

Ex Representative William Vicke
presided and delivered the opening address.
The meeting was a very enthusiastic
one and tha following declaration was
unanimously adopted:
"With profound iudigatiou we havo
noticed the persistent efforts of English-American newspapers not only to
incite among our people vicious prejudices against Germany and to defame the character of the Germnu-
Auiericaus.but also to drag the Uuited
States into an alliance   with England.
"As loyal citizens of this republic,
it is our right, as well ns onr duty to
resist these wicked practices with all
due firmness. The immigrants from
Germany have brought with them to
this laud the achievement of a civilization as high as it is old. Upon every
field of the intellectual life of our
nation, as well as iu commerce, industry and agriculture, tbeir efforts
have redounded to tne weal of our peoplo, aud in peace as well as in war
they bave at all tunes faithfully fulfilled (heir duty."

MAKING THEIR P0WEER
Filipinos Have an Ammunition  Factory
and   Now   Oan   Supply
Themselves.
Washington, Maroh 27.���Tho duration of the battle is beginning to attract the attention of army strategists
ns it is a very important element in
determining the strength of men, the
supplies of ammunitiou and stores,
and the spirit of the army. The first
blow was struck before daybreak last
Saturday, and tbe fighting continued
all that day, again on Sunday and uow
ou Monday. The reports show little
nignt fighting except iu repulsing an
insurgent attack Saturday night. With
today, the fighting has lasted 72
hours.
Judged by the standards of great
battles such as Waterloo, Plevna and
others, mentioned by army authorities,
this is a long and iutensely arduous
engagement. But the fighting about
Manila is quite different from the
standards of civilized armies, as it is
a running brush fight with only occasional issues between organized bodies of troops. The main question in
these long continued fights is to have
all supplies, stores, etc, kept abreast
of the fighting force so that they
may be no exhaustions. In this respect all the reports of the fighting
about Manila are most gratifying to
tho authorities here, in showing that
the quartermaster, commissary, medical and signal stores are well with
our fighting line.
The belief is expressed at the War
Department that the Filipinos aro
manufacturing the ammunition that
is being used with suoh recklessness.
When General Green was in tlie
Philippines whe went to the Filipiuo
camps and remained some time among
them, his report to the President
shows that the Filipinos obtained quite
a large supply of arms and ammuni
tiou wheu Dewey captured Oavite and
that they had heretofore, obtained
a supply of Remingtons and Mausers.
General Green also found that the Filipinos had established a factory for the
manufacture of ammunition for these
rifles and this factory is probably still
in operation and furuishing a sufficient
supply to the insurgents.
NEW   BRIDGE   AT   KHARTOUM.
American  Contractors   Get the Precedence Over English.
Philadelphia, Maroh 27.���An ereot-
ing gang from the Pencoyd Iron
Works will leave this oity in a few
days en route to Afrioa, to build a
bridge across the Atbara river in the
Soudan, near Khartoum. The seven
spans of the bridge, with a total length
of 1100 feet, have already been shipped.
The order was placed with the Pencoyd Iron Works by the British War
Office, Iobs than six weeks ago, the
company agreeing to build the struo-
ture in even weeks. The Peucoyd
company, it is said, was given precedence over the English budge builders, because the latter had stated that
it would roquire seven months to complete the structure. The British War
Office was auxious to have tho bridge
completed hefore tho fall, in order to
facilitate future operations of Genera
Kitchener against the Mnhdi.
ROETGEN RAYS BURNED.
The   Patient    Snes   the  Dootor   For
Heavy Damages.
Paris, March 27.���Some time ago a
dootor who was treating Madame
Mochert, a young woman, for an
affection of the thigh joint, attempted to photograph the Beat of the trouble with tbe Roentgen rays. Madame

day.
One witness. Dr. Bardot, Socretary
of the Societe Thorapeutique tasti-
lied that burning would result in raro
instances from the uso of the Roentgen rays. Everything deponded on

maintained that if doctors were made

would be obliged to ronounce the use
of tho rays. The court reserved its
docisiou

Fisher Gold Hill claim near Dawson.
A nugget weighing seven pounds

further proof of tho qnartz origin of

LACROSSE CLUB TO ORGANJ.ZE.
Meeting Called   For   Tonight   in  the
Fire  Hall.
Canada s National game bids fair to
flourish iu Nelsou this summer. Last
seasou tbe Nelsou club had the strongest team in thu Kootenays but Rossland and other towns will bo represented hy muoh stronger aggregations this
year than ever before so it will be necessary for Nolson to also strengthen
itself to retain its position at the head.
Several good players have como to
the Oity since last fall,and when these
are added to the list to choose the team
from, a first -class twelve will be available. Thompson, Jeffs, Taylor, Arch-
bald, Perrier, Wetmore, Grey and
others will he very good men to form
tbe nucleus of a strong team.
A meetng of those interested in the
game bas been called for fl o'olook this
evening m the Fire Hall. In order
lo assure a good season's sport there
should be a large attendance of all
those interested in the game in order
that tho club "an start the yearauspio-
iously. Rossland has written asking

it can in organizing a Kootenay Association.
TO DISCUSS THE LEAD QUESTION
Important   Mooting   of   the Board  of
Trade Tonight.
The meeting of the Board of Trade,
adjourned from last Friday evening
will be held this evening. The ad-
juurnment was made in order that the
Kaslo Hoard of Trade oould send repr��-
sentatives to Nelson to conier with
the local Hoard ou the lead question
which is of snch vast importance to
the Slocan district. Tho Kaslo people are well versed in the matter, having made a special study of it, and
their knowledge will be of great benefit to the Nelson Board iu determining
what course to adopt. It is probable
that the Kuslo and Nelson Boards will
decide upon some united actiou and it
is nm unlikely that a representative
of the two bodies will bo sent to Ottawa to lay tbe views before the Dorain
ion Government,
A question of such groat importance
should assure u largo attendance of
the members of Iho South Kootenay
Board of Trade Ibis evening. Mr. O.

Board of Trade, and possibly two or
three other mem bora will be preseat.

modus vivendi will accrue to her.
Her aggressions into United States
territory will be temporarily legalized.
IIir assessments upon American miners will be approved. The domination by her armed offloers, the ^Canadian mounted police, will be indorsed.
And, when the situation comes to a
final consideration, she will be enabled
to represent that her rights hnve at
least been tentatively Tecognized."
It will be angrier still should the
oabled report of an understanding prove
true. The desire for more friendly relations between the two great Anglo-
Saxon families has uot extended as far
us Seattle.
THE EIGHT   HOUR DAY.
In yesterday's Miner Mr. E. P.
Bremner, of New Denver, gave what
we are to suppose is the laboring
miners' view of tho Eight-hour law recently passed by the Provincial Legislature. It will be interesting to all
connected with the mining industry in
this section of the Province. During
the past few weeks many of the newspapers have been discussing the law,
but in nearly every case that has
oome under our notice it has been regarded from the point of view of the
mine owner only. Our New Denver
correspondent shows thnt. like all
other questions, it has two sides to it,
and it will be admitted that his side
of it is presented with moderation and
ability.
If disposed to he severely critical it
would be open to us to question
whether Mr. Bremner takes as broad
a view of the matter as is necessary,
if we are to decide whether tbe new
law is exactly fair all round. It can
be said, of course, that be was not
bound to consider the owners' side of it
and was therefore not under the neces
sity of presenting it in its strong
light. But as we uuderstani him, he
set out to weigh the law on its merits,
and it may fairly be questioned if he
has done this. For instance, he asks
that tbe law be judged according as it
improves the condition of the working
miner and betters his circumstances.
True, he professes to consider tbe effect
on the miuiug industry and the community, but ibis he rather assumes
than shows to be beneficial. It is in
its influence on the miner that be
chiefly regards it. giving, as he does,
precedence to the question, are the
conditions of the miner as desirable as
they might be? Probably they are
not. The conditions of the newspaper
publisher, the grooer, the lumberman,
the salmon eanuer, are often uot as
desirable as they might be. If existing
conditions are to dooide, it would
probably be found that very few of us
are satisfied; and not only that, hut
we should find Legislatures aud Parliaments very strongly disinclined
to any effort to improve* them. The
average newspaper man. for example,
works from twelve to fourteen hours a
day ; he would be very glad of a law
to compel a condition of circumstances
that would lighten his labor, but
Legislatures would not listen to him
if he petitioned for it. It is desirable that the condition of the
miner should be made as satisfactory as possible ; it is desirable
that the condition of the entire com-
mnnity should be improved. Bnt the
improvement must come through individual effort, and not by legislation.
None of us can gain all we want excepting by hard striving.
ts a ten-hour day too long? That,
it seems to us, is the oue question
on which the whole nintter hinges. We
do not understand that tne question of wage has been raised. It is
ei-needed that the mine owners have
beon paying a liberal wage for t��n
hours' work. But, if teu hours is too
loug a time for contiuned work i�� a
mine, it is propor that it should be
shortened. It has beon stated that the
minors themselves were satisfied with
the old conditions, and if true the
Legislature is open to the charge of
altering them of its own accord and
presumably in ignorance of the circumstances, lint now that thoy havo
been altered, the question of first importance is whether it is expected the
shorter day is lo carry the same wage
as tbe longer. It iu a practical question of business, not social theories,
that confronts us. Miners ns a class
need no coddling from [legislatures;
thoy are quite capable of looking after
themselves. They have had an eight-
hour day forced upon them, i.ud now
they have to consider the new relations
between them ami their employers
which are involved in the change.
That is the actual situation iu it presents itself to practical minds. We
have not understood that among millers   themselves   thore   has   been   any

Oity Fathers   in   Regular
Session Last Evening-
INDORSES MR GALLIHER
Council Puts Itself on Beoord as  Being
Very Much in Favor of a Vote For
Publio   Buildings*
Tho sound of a fire alarm in the middle ofthe meeting bid fair to break up
the regular session of the Oity Council last eveuiiiR, but a telephone message, conveying the intelligence that
tlie blaze had been conquered before it
passed the incipient Htage, arrived just
in time to prevent a general stampede
of the Oity Fathers. That was the
most exciting feature of the meetiug,
which, ou the -whole, was a very
peaceable and orderly affair. Considerable business was transacted. It was
the first uppearnnce at, a meeting of tbe
Oouunil of Mayor Neelands since tho
commencement of his illness ovor three
weeks a��o. He is by no means well
yet but. is able to attend to his
municipal duties. There were also
present Aldermen Thomson, Fletcher,
Kirkpatrick aud McKillop.
The Finance Committee recommended the payment of the following accounts : Salaries, pay roll for week,
$940.511; Streets, pav roll for w��ek,
$1136,75; Waterworks inaintainenco.
$185.25; J. J. Driaooll, electric light
construction services, $88.50; Frank
Lavin, lumber, $440.63; N. & F. S.
Ry, Co., $15; J. A. Sayward, cemetery fence and lumber, $219.42.
The committee also recommended
that rebates on electric light rates for
March be 10 per ceut. on ordinary accounts if paid before April 10th aud 20
per cent, on all night rates if paid
within the same period.
A letter waa read from the Provincial Secretary stating that Aid. Hillyer had been appointed as the Council's representative on the Board of Licensing Commissioners.
H. V. Kuskip wrote stating thnt ho
had received a cable from his principals in London stating that they were
uuable to accept the City's terms for
granting a gas franchise for the City.
Full particulars are beiug forwarded
from Eugland.
W. A. Macdonald, Q. 0., wrote asking the City Council to assume a lia
bility of $11.05 which sum ho had paid
for having the water main in front of
his house uncovered in an attempt to
procure water. Tbe work was dono on
Oity property. The letter was referred
to the Board of Work?.*
Macdonald and Johnson wrote enclosing tbe statement of the accounts of
Mrs. Gilbert against the City for nursing and care at her hospital of eiidit
men. Tho coiniiiuiiication was tiled
ponding tho unswer from Ihe Provincial Government concern ing tho matter.
The Mayor and City Olerk were
empowered to sign a promissory nolo
for $10,000 to provide for current expenses.
As it was too late to do anything
effective, tho resolution which wag before the Couucil, endorsing O. M. Hon-
endalo's application for the position of
tho Province's representative at Paris
next year was withdrawn by the seconder, Aid.  Kirkpatrick
On motion of Aid. Fletcher and
Thomson it wi s resolved thnt "This
Council endorses tho action of the
Board of Trade ro Public Buildings for
the City and iu sending Mr. \V. A.
Galliher to lay the matter before the
proper authorities at Ottawa and that
he bo authorized to state that thiH
Council strongly advocates the justice
of the citizen's petition. "
Sanitary Inspector Thompson reported on the wash houses iu the Oity and
the ropott wns referred to tho Board
of Works.
James McPhee reported on the additional poles which should be erected
for electric light purposes as folows :
Pole line from Viotoria to Mill street
ou Josephiue street; from Josephine
to power house on Mill street; from
Ward street to Ilendryx on Carbonate
street; from Observatory to Robson on
Josephine; from Josephine to Hall on
Observatory. This would require 47
polos. There is enough wire in stock
for the exteusion outlined. Tho Oity
Engineer was instructed to advertise
for tenders to erect the polos and the
Board of Works was empowered to proceed with the work. The city has 107
poles in stook.
H. D. Book, the caretaker ot the
cemetery, complained through Aid.
Flotchor, that thorn was not a living
in his position as thero were net
enough graves to dig and as powder
had to be used on some of them it was
an expensive work. On motion of
Aid. MoKillop aud Kirkpatrick it was
deoided to grant him $15 for all the
powder used.
A. W. Peek's account of $75 for auditing the City accounts for tho
year 1898 waB ordered   to bo paid.
On motion of Aid. Thomson and McKillop, A. W. Pock was appointed auditor of tho Oity to prepare and submit
to the oity Couucil a monthly statement of receipts ami expenditures,
An informal discussion on the City
Soavauging took place. It seemed
to be the consensus of opinion that the
present arrangeinont waa not satisfactory and that it would bo better for
the City if tho Council took over tho
work. A nuisance ground will have
to be scoured and the proper disposition of all garbage assured, It will
oost upwards of a thousand dollars to
secure a complete Outfit with which to
do tho work, two teams, harness and
wagons, being necessary. The whole
question was referred to the Board of
Works to roport.and from opinions ox-
pressed by the Aldermen it gonitis probable that the City will hereafter do tbe
BoaTeugiug and" charge householders
a reasonable fee for tho service.
Tho meeting then adjourned for
two weeks.
NELSON DAILY MINER, TUESDAY, MARCH 28, 1899
LOCAL  AND PERSONAL
Mr. W. R. Digby is oonfined to hiB
rooms,suffering from a slight attack of
grippe.
Mr. W. P. Robinson has been succeeded in his olliee Sheriff of South
Kooteuay by Mr. S. P. Tuck, of Kaslo.
The "Gunner From Galway" yesterday paid the penalty of a rather prolonged spree, by a contribution of $5
aud costs to the City treasury.
The new books received by the Publio Library have had the effect of
largely Increasing tho number of subscribers. Last week thore were 177
visitors to the reading rooms.
A very encouraging practice of the
Nelson Music il Society was hold iu
the Opera House laBt evening. The
concert on Wednesday evening of next
week promises to bo a groat treat.
It is anticipated that tho regular service on the Columbia will be resumed
next week, and tho old sohedule time
table comes iuto force again, tho present temporary connection vin Slocan
Lake and Nakusp   will be abnudonod.
Mr. and Mrs. Bruce White leave
this morning on a visit to the Coast.
While at Victoria Mr. White will discuss the new eight-hour a day mining legislation with Hon. J. Fred
Hume Mr. White thinks the law
will do this country a great deal of
harm.
Tho assessment roll of the oity has
been nearly completed by Mr. J. K.
Straohan, the City Clerk, who will
present it to the City Council on the
10th prox. The value in improvements
shows a big advance on last year's,
ns it takes in nearly all tho buildings
erected lust summer.
Mr. A. T. Van Etliuger, inspootor
of the Commercial Uuiou Assurance
Co., has been in Nelson for some days
in the interests of his company. It
has been decided to add the Commercial Union to the assurance companies
doing business in Nelsou and Messrs.
Gamble & O'Reilly have been appoint
ed agents.
About 8 :30 last night the fire bell
rang, and the Fire Brigade turned
out with their usual promptitude. It
was ouly a false alarm, however. A
chimney in Wilson & Harshaw's stable
on Veruou street threatened to catch
fire, but by the time the fire department wus on the spot everything was
all right.
Mr. W. A. Gallihei leaves this morning for Ottawa where he goes as the
accredited representative of the Board
of Trade and tho City Council to urge
upou tho Dominion authorities a grant
towards the erectiou of a publio building iu Nelson suitable for the officers of
the Goverumeut. He will be^absent
about a month.
Mr. W. W. Beor has added to his already extensive real estate holdings in
Nelson by purchasing lots 14 and 15
iu block 26 which face Carbonate
street, aud also Iho corner lot on Carbonate aud Josephine, at present occupied by Donate, an Italian storekeeper
Mr. Beer will erect private residences
for rental on his new purchases.
Tho third member of the Licensing
Board is Mr. J. A.Turner,Gold Commissioner. The Canadian Pacific Telegraph
Company is responsible for the mistake
which caused The Miner to announce
in its Press despatches of last Friday,
tbat Alderman Diaries Hillyer had
boon appointed to thur position. Aid.
Hillyer'B appointment was that of Pc-
lico Commissioner, hence doubtless,
the mistake.

What Some Local Mining
Men Think-
LOCAL   MINING  ITEMS
Molly Ulbion Will Not Start Up Jut
Now    Masting   of   tho   Nolnon-
Slooan Mining Company.
The if" ciil letflslntlOU limiting Hi"
luitirs during vvbioh men mny work
under ground to eight, iim* onuisd u
neat dmi ot comment. With the ob
jeot ot RHoertniniug the vlawi of thoBB
iiidsi   Interested,    A   Miner   reporter
culled yimti'i'ilny upon 11 number ol'   tho
the leading mining men in town, and
the opinion of Boms will be found below.
In order in present both ildei ot 1)10 oass,
it ia iho Intention ulso in subsequent
iiiuoi, to give tlif views of pruotloal
and experienced working miners:
Oaptaiu Duooau, general manager of
thn Ihineiiii Minns fiiitipuiiy, ronxulni'-
ml Umi ilm aotion of the legislature
was 1111    unwarrantable   Intorfereuae
with tlio ohief industry of the rnini
try, and could only losnlt in tin*
miners earning loss money, So far
ilm majority of the mines or Kooteimy
wero being developed nnd iimi nol
vet 1'iyiin ii) pay dividends, and oou-
seo^nently so far labor was getting all
the pmiu out of iho mining, His i-v-
perlenoa hud ihowu that n man who
was up In his work could work a lo*
hour alnft without Inoouveuisuoo.
Mr. (i, A. Kurini. general  manager
of the Uro   Mining nnd   Milling Oom
puniv, was also averse to the now IorIb*
lniinii Whether men oould do more
work iii eight hours thau they oould
in inn   hours or  not,   there was  no
ilnnlu thai they iiul not,und work done
by three eight-hour shifts always cost
more per running foot, than would
the same work done by  two   10-hour
rdllt'ls.
Mr. s. S. Fowler, oousultiug engineer for the Loudon and B, 0. Gold
ileliis Oompany, oonsldered   that   the
restriction   of   llio limns   of   work   to
eight hours would in> detrimental to tbe
Provinoe, In thnt it would  retard   development  of   its   mineral  riisoiiri.es
if tlio law i�� euforoed, the oo��i of operating   big mines   will   he  enhauoed
So fur as he understood  the  act,   Mr
Fowls!   thought   Individual  prospect-
ors would not be   permitted   to  work
their chums mora  than eight hours n
day,   whioh    would   m    many    In-
sinuous   met    as    -i  great   hardship.
Tho  law   wns   tlm    more    nuueoes
sary ns the men do not now wmk a
straight 10 hour shift, it being the
custom in the Kootenays for the nighl
shift only M work nine hours, while
in many   nun *s   the   Saturday  night
slnfl oulv works eight hours.
Asked if ho had lienrd llio rumor that
the Slooan,mine owners intended nil
to shut dowu   then* mines,   wore   this
law   enforced.   Mr.    Fowler  replied
thnt he had. adding thnt he wns not
iu a position to say what action, if
any, his own oompany intended tnk-
Lug   iu   the   mutter.

The contractor at the Whitewater
nunc, which has heen closer! dowu
since the second Instant, started up at
noon ou Sunday. Regular shipments
of the concentrates will shortly he
resumed.
The statement in yesterday's Miner
thai the Molly Gibson mine was about
to start np again was incorrect. A
couple of men will ho seut up to haul
Wood and look after the    property, hut
mining operations will not be resumed until the litigation is settled. An
appeal before to Privy Council is bow
pending. ,
