Island will be of little service. Our
interests in the matter, in this case
can only be fully taken into consideration when the peace treaty is
adopted by the Corles, which is not
expected to assemble before the end
of April. I am not in a position to
say anything further." Herr Richter
declared that he would strive to prevent the acquisition of worthless
colonies.
LoDdon, Maroh 11- The British lion
and tbe Rusfiau bear came to uncomfortably olose qnai ters this week over tl e
Chinese imbroglio. The newspapue
bid already begnn to talk of a serious
crisis and grave outlook, but the diplomatic switchman again succeeded in
warding off a collision on the subject of
the Northern railroad, a conflict being
averted by a Buasian backdown according to tbe jingoes, and by a compromise,
accorditg to more impartial observers
The real explanation of the affair appears to be tbat Russia made a protest
against the British railroad contract,
partly as a feeler, and partly a warning.
If the British Premier bad shown weakness, Russia would have persisted, but
iu any oase, Russia by ber protest elicited a Miuisteiial statement iu the House
of Commons, that the conditions of the
loan did uot constitute foreign control.
Thus Russia obtained a pledge that r.o
such interpretation would be plaoed on
the contract in tlie event of default,
which is a further substantial concession on the Russian claims in Noithirn
Cuius. On the other hand, Loid Salisbury scored in securing a withdrawal
of lhe Russian protest.

10 LONGER GENERAL
Cuban   Military Assembly
Dismisses Him.
FOR VARIOUS REASONS
Oommander-in-0hief of the Cuban Foroes
Impeaohedland Removed by a
Large] Vote-
Havana, March 11.���The Cuban
military assembly, in publio session
this afternoon, impeached General
Maximo Gomez and removed him
from his command as general-in-ohief
of the Cuban army, the first ballot
taken resulting in 26 votes being oast
in support of tbe motion to impeach
and remove General Gomez against
four in opposition. The meeting
lasted from 2 o'olock until 7. Much
passion was evident in the speeches,
in some of which Gomez was declared to bave been delinquent in his
duties and disobedient because he had
accepted the proposition of Mr. Robt.
P. Porter, President McKiuley's special emissary, without consulting the
assembly, because be bad taken upon
himself the arrangements for the payment aud disarming of the Cuban
troops independent of the assembly
and because he had declared to the
assembly tbat. he would observe its
rulings only insofar as lie considered
them beneficial ro Cuba. The assembly again du-hue.d that the $8,000,000
was iusulfluient und that ho hns not
,*at accepted ihe proposition. Tlie discussion   will   soon   bo  taken   up  now
liar I e era! Gomez has been removed.
General Gmiiz is believed to be strengthen the assembly in the affection of
the Cuban army.
Many privates aro anxious to leave
tlie army and go to work, especially
wlien I hey are able to obtain money to
start them in life anew. The position
of the assembly is notably weak as the
military administration supports General Gomez as do also the planters and
property owners, who are tirod of the
Cuban army, which subsists half upon
charity and half upon contributions
levied bv means of threats.

LARGE CLAIMS.
Washington, March 11.���The
Department of State has received
claims to the amount of $21,000,000
on account of property destroyed in
Cuba belonging to American citizens, and also on account of injuries
sustained by citizens for which pecuniary indemnity is sought. The
peace treaty expressly provided that
the United States and Spain each
should assume liability for all such
claims preferred by their respective
cit'zens. Congress made no provision for the settlement of these
claims, so tbe State Department is
at present unable to do more than
merely file them.
SAD  ACCIDENT.
Marshfield, Wis., March 11.-Al
Milladore, near here, last night,
Mrs. Etbard,a widow, left her home
to call an a neighbor and locked her
two children, a girl and a boy, aged
3 and 5 years, respective!, in tbe

and complained of being cold. I let-
little brother .thereupon went to the
stove, scraped a few live coals together and laid them on the bed be-
besidc his sister. The bedclothing
ingnited and burned the little one to

RETAINS THE PRISONERS.
Madrid, March 1 1. ��� It is asserted
that Aguinaldo has redoubled his opposition to the release of the Spanish prisoners now in the hands of
the insiirgeants because General
Polaviejo, now Minister of War,
caused Dr. Rizal, who drew up the
statutes of the Philippine league, and
was therefore practically the instigator of the revolt in the islands, to
be be shot in December iHyO.
STILL CONVALASING.
New York, March 11 .���Mr. Kipling's condition was said tonight to
I e much improved. He has seen
inly his physicians, nurses and
Hlftnbers of his family yet.
Stratford, Ont., Maroh II���T .wards
the close of hie speeoh in this city last
night Mr. Sifton touched on immigration and the settlement of ihe Northwest. He quoted from a np*-tob ot Sir
John MacDonald iu 1878 in ��hieh that
statesman had deplored the fact of sn
many people leaving Canada for the
Uuited Stales. Sir J,*ho and his lieutenants went in-o power vowing they would
put a stop in that kh d of thing. When
they took the oensns in 1887 Ihe popula-
tiou was 4,424.810 and for the next ten
years the drain continued, thousands of
people m king their wny to tbe States
from Canada. They took no real steps
to piU a stop to i', though they had complete power to pass any bill they liked
to, or to decide any et.,p they deemed
necessary. The Seuiit- was no check
upon their legislation so the Conservatives had the powei lo carry out any
policy they saw fit. The win Is Northwest w is practical y no opeu sheet, they
had Ihe building of tl e C. P. It. and au
opportunity for settling 100,00(1 immi
grsn'S by t:.m giving them work. They
hid all ihat and what was the resultV
I . 181)1 when thn census was tak-n, it
showed a population of 4,821,429, an iu-
c.tase of about hall a million in 10years.
Tbe natural increase was 800,000 and we
brought in several hundred thousand
immigrants, .so we lost all the immigrant s
and 800,000 of our owu people. That
was the way they redeemed their pledges
to stop the exodus. Mr. Sifton contrasted this with the present state of affairs. There were uo people going from
Canada to the Uuited Slates at present
aud last year $2,223,200 worth of settlers'
effects were brought into Canada from
the United States, besides an immense
amount from other countries. We have
got in the last two or three years several
thousand from the United States and
Canada is the ouly country that is maintaining ils own in rogard to the percentage on immigrants coming from the British Empi'6. For the first time in many
tears nioyemeut of population was from
the Uuited States to Canada. He quoted
from the Mail aud Etnpiie an artiole expressing satisfaction that the exodus had
become a matter of history.
A BIG DEAL.

THAT   TELEC-RAM
WHY    WAS     WILFUL    WILLIAM
W0EBIED?
English Press Discusses the Emperor of
Germany's Message to Mrs.
Kipling,
London, March 11���Emperor
William's message to Mrs. Rudyard
Kipling has naturally attracted great
attention, particularly the reference
to 01.r "common race". The
" Spe tator " to-day says: "The
Empe or is evidently willing to sub-
stitut the Teuton for the Anglo-
Saxon as the ruling race 01 the
future. He did not venture to call
Kipling an American, but being
anxious that his telegram should be
taken as a compliment to Americans
rather than Englishmen, the German journals received a hint to describe him as an American at least.
The Germans read Kipling and
know his pedigree as well as we do.
That is the only explanation we can
offer for their otherwise inexplicable
unanmity in blundering."
" The Spectator " in another article remarked : "It must be a
singular experience,even tor Kipling,
to wake up from a serious illness
and find that two great peoples have
been interested in his fate, that an
Emperor has grieved for him in
words having the weight of a political manifesto, and that his value to
publishers has been increased by-
hundreds, perhaps by thousands a
year.
REFUSED THE APPLICATION.
London, March 11.���The Secretary
of State for Home Affairs, Sir Matthew
White Ridley, has refused tbo application previously granted by tlm consistory of the court of St. Paul's to Mrs.
Anna Maria Druce, who claims to be
the daughter-in-law of the fifth Duke
of Portland, to open tbe Druce vault
in llighgalc cemetry unless the owner
of the vault consents to have the
cofflu opened or the Probate Court
orders an inspection of the remains.
This decision is contrary to expectations and means further litigation,

Full Court Reverses Decision
of Mr. Justice Drake-
PAYMENT WAS REFUSED
Oourt Considered; 'hey HadlNothinglto do
WitbCDisput<-| Between Mr- Jones
and  Attorney- General-
Victoria, March 11���The Full
Court to-day gave judgment on the
appeal from the deoision of Mr.
Justice Drake in Pender vs. War
Eagle, refusing to order stenographer
Jones to deliver a transcript of his
notes in the case, which he withheld
on account of the department disputing the amount of his claim for
pay.
The full Court reversed this decision, their judgment concluding as
follows : " We have nothing to do
with the dispute which has arisen
between Mr. Jones and the Attorney
General's department with respect
to compensation, and it must be
obvious that 110 suitors right to a
transcript of the notes, such as that
now asked for can be prejudiced in
consequence of any such dispute.
In sitting and acting in the coujt at
Rossland as ollicialstenographer Mr.
Jones, in effect, held himself out to
the suitors of that court as having
been duly appointed and there is no
reason to believe that the suitors
thought otherwise, hence they must
have relied upon him lor transcript
of the notes taken by him in their
several cases if they should need
them. The result of what has been
said is that the appeal must be allowed and .following the usual rule,
with costs."
DANGEROUS FOR   FAMILIES.
Washington, March 11-The War JDe-
dartment today received the following
cablegram from General Otis at Manila:
"Manila no safe place for officials' families. Oreat difficulty experienced in caring for the meu uow here and their safety

States."
Under such conditions the Secretary of
War says that no more families uf officers or enlisted meu will be permitted to
accompany troops.

HARD UP FOR A ROW.
FROM
$200,00
TO
a Washington dispatch alleging
Canadian trespass in the Potcupine
region. "They are treading on the
toes of Americans,"itisadded.Thisis
another example of the immense
fund of uninfbrmation possessed by
the average American editor. What
he does not know would fill several
libraries each several times as large
as the one the ladies of Nelson were
so successful in establishing a short
time ago. The Governor of Alaska,
it is said, has written to the American Minister of the Interior that
Canadians have encroached six
miles or more on Alaskan territory;
that the American settlers have
threatened to drive them back by
force, and that there was imminent
danger of a conflict.
We doubt if there in any truth at
all in the story. The boundary
north from Mount St. Elias is a
meridian of longitude, the 141st. It
is impossible to get up a quarrel
over a meridian of longitude. That
is fixed by the sun and the north
star and such things, and they are
absolutely incapable of partiality
and cannot lie if they would. If the
authorities do not know where the
longitude is, all they have to do is
to employ an expert, who, with his
sextant, can establish it in a short
time. We do not know whether
any Canadian surveyors or engineers have been living down the longitude through the Porcupine country, nor do we know whether there
is anything in the Porcupine country to induce them to take the
trouble. Rut if they have been
taking observations, we have no
doubt they established the boundary
within a few yards of where the sun
and north star say it ought to be.
They did this several years ago
further south in the Klondike region, and although there were reports of similar trouble on that occasion the American authorities accepted the Canadian survey and it
stands to this day. If there is any
foundation for the story that has
come down from Alaska, it will
probably be ascertained that some
Canadians, with more intelligence
and enterprise than their American
neighbors, have established the
boundary in that particular locality
in the regular and only possible
way, and having done so have further resolved to take possession of
their own. If the Governor of
Alaska, who must be a bit of an ass,
according to the reports of his communication, is not satisfied with
this he has merely to employ an
American with intelligence   enough
In several places in his report Mr.
Kelso speaks of the difficulties he has
encountered through the reluctance
of some of the authorities to interfere with parental rights. There
are no parental rights without parental duties. As against the safety
of the child, the feelings of the parent have no more right to be regarded than have those of a mad
dog. The judge or magistrate who
would hesitate, out of regard lor

lo deal wilh.    The unwedded mother often has the feeling of maternity
as strongly developed as any other.
She clings to her child,  although a

It is  best   to   separate   them.    The*|||

exclamation of a  clergyman   pleading for his class,that all of us would
do well to take to heart: "Illegitimate  Children!    There   are   none.
There arc illegitimate parents, but
no illegitimate children."
Of local interest is the following :
" During my visit to Manitoba I received a telegraph from the Hon.
Jas. Haker, Provincial Secretary of
British Columbia, inviting me on behalf of the Government to visit that
Province and address the Legislature,
which was then in session. This I
was very glad to do, and spent the
early part of April in British Columbia, giving addresses in Victoria,
Vancouver, and Nanaimo. On
April 6th lhe Hon. Mr. Turner,
Premier of British Columbia, moved
that the Speaker leave the chair and
that I be requested to give an address on the Children's Protection
Laws of Ontario, and for considerably over an hour 1 was privileged
to present the claim of neglected
children upon the consideration of
parliament. The honor of thus addressing Ihe Legislature while in
regular session was one rarely if
ever accorded to an outsider, and it
was therefore an occasion which I
look back upon with feelings of the
greatest pleasure. As the session
was drawing to a close and a new
election was shortly to lake place,
the Members of the Government informed me that while they might
not act at once the subject was one
that met with their heartiest approv-

SAMPLING WORKS-
Secures Concessions From the fl, P. ��������
and WilllBesin Oonstruotion in
a Few Weeks.
Mr. William Whyte, (teuer.il man-
Hger of tlie C P. Ii west of Fort
William, arrived in Nelson Saturday
111 il left for Rossland lust night. Whi'e
in Nelion Mr. Whyte conferred with
Superintendent Marpole and the local
officials of the road in regard to the
sampling works luked fur by Mr. G.
M. McDowell, An extended conference
was held yesterday afternoon in the
pailoui of the Phair Hotel, nnd a compromise wi*s effected, which will
undoubtedly ensure the construction uf
the works. There were present nt the
conference: Messrs. Whyte, Mai pole,
Peters, McDowell, McDonald, F. G.
Bier, Kjdd und Bensley. Mr. McDouell
wasnotgiveu exactly what be naked
for, but whs giveu a si'e 22 feet fiom
the centre of the track, which will
compel him to build tho works wholly
on pileB 1 ut lit the same time enable
the Spokane Falls and Northern road
to build a switch from their li e to Ihe
works. Au agreement was reached
whereby Mr. McDowell will have a 30
-years' lease upoD tbe property, providing he will begin work upon the plant
within three mouths aud bave it completed in six months.
Seen by a Mine reporter last night
Mr. McDowell said that while he had
not secured from the C.P R. just what
he had f sked for be was satisfied.
"I found Mr. Whyte and Mr. Marpole splendid gentlemen to do business
wilh. They were of conrse looking
after the interests of tbe C.P.R., but
were perfectly willing to make any
concessions tbat lay in their power.
While I did not get exactly what I
was looking for, I got probably all that
they could grant me and have therefore no oomplaints to make. They bave
named me very satisfactoiy rates upon
the machinery for the works, and good
rates upon the ore from lilterent
points."
Mr. McDowell snjs work on the
plant will likely commence within the
next three weeks and completed long
before the six months specified in bis
agreement with the C.P.K. people.
Nelsou last evening, and registered at
I the Grand Ce *ttal Hotel Toni��bt,

Tbe Miner bus been asked to give
its opinion of a dispute regarding
prize money, growing out of the gun
club shoot oi Saturday- H. W.
Hawley and H. B. Beasley tied in one
contest, each killing four birds. In
the shoot-off Beasley won and secured
first prize, the second prize being
given to a mun who bad killed three
birds. This was not right as tbe
second prize should have gone to
Hawley, the tie being shot off lo see
who woul 1 get first and who would
get second money.

It looks ns thofifrb tbe Crow's Nest

officials who were in Nelson yesterday
said as much, but iu conversation ibe
inference was given that wsrk would
not coinnience in tbe near future.
"In regard to the Crow's Nest road.
I muoh prefor to say no h Ug.'' su d
General Superintendent Whyte lo n
Miner reporter aud this is all that
could bo loarnod.
" I do believe, however,." ho continued, "that Nelson is to be the trading
centre of the Kootenays It is the natural point of distribution aud this,
coupled with the energetio people you
have here, should make it a thriving
city."
NELSON WON.
By a score ot" eight goals to four
tbe Nelson hockey team defeated
the Slocan City seven at the Crystal

match was a rather interesting one
