ADVICES FROM .1APAN.
What Is Interesting the People in the
Land of the Chrysnnthemnm.
Yokohama, Dec. 23.��� The wearisome
and disappointing delays of the Pekin
diplomats aro having a marked effect
upon public opinion in Japan, producing what may be regarded as almost a
revolution of sentiment in favor of
China. The native papers are now
mainly ranged on the side of leniency
in dealing with tho chief instigators.
The missionary question, of course,
occupies a foremost plaee in the discussion. It is now felt us essential
that the western powers take cognizance of the sentiment here that religions invasions of Oriental countries
by powerful western organizations
are tantamount to filibustering expeditions and should not only be discountenanced but stern measures
should be adopted for their suppression.
The business stagnation continues
and is exciting some alarm in foreign
as wbII as in native circles. The harbor of Yokohama is well nigh denuded of shipping and there is a steady,
though as yet small,exodus of foreign
residents. When the Chinese troubles are settled, however, everyone is
looking for a substantial revival of
trade and preparations for them are
being made, In the meantime, indignation against the inexcusable delays
at Pekin is waxing hot.
Nothing yet has been heard from
the training ship T.sulushimn, which
disappeared off the eastern coast
in the recent storm and intenso anxiety is felt for those on board. A war
ship has been despatched   in search.
The enthusiasm among the Japanese
over the proposed 'memorial of the
Perry expedition is increasing and
something handsome will probably be
the result.
ANSWER ON. THURSDAY.
It is Expected the Chinese Authorities
Will lie Ready by Then.
Pekin, Dec. 23.���Ll nung Chang,
answering an enquiry from the foreign envoys regarding his health, said
be believed he would be able to attend the meeting tomorrow and in order to adopt with Prince Ching. the
preliminary joint note. Tho note will
be presented by the Spanish Minister
Senor He Cologan. dean of the diplomatic corps, with a few words expressive of a hope of as prompt a reply as possible to a note which has
been carefully prepared with every
desire to continue tho dynasty and
not to be hard toward the nation and
of a further hope that the Chinese
plenipotentiaries will urge upon Emperor Kwang Su tho necessity of im
mediate compliance. An answer is expected about Thursday.
FORTY INSURGENTS   KILLED.
Manila, Dec. 24.���Advices brought
today by steamer from Southern Luzon say thnt a lietuenaut and sixty
men of the UOtli United States cavalry
attacked a large body of insurgents
lust Wednesday near Guinobatan,
Province of Albay. Aftor the battle

AFFAIRS   IN   THE   PHILIPPINES.
Reports   Dealing With   the    Reforms
the United States Has Made.
Washington, Dec. 24.���The War Department has made public a series of
reports made to General MacArthur,
bv the subordinate officers constituting the heads of the various bureaus
ai: 1 departments whieh have administered tho civil affairs of the Philippine islands during the last year.
These i r ��� closely but sufficiently summarized in the report of Lieut. -
Colonel Croudcr. 30th Regiment, secretary to the military governor.
The customs service is discussed at
some length in the report and it is
stated that there does not seem to be
any present necessity for an increase
in the number of ports of entry.
Attention is directed to the marked
increase in the enstoms receipts under
American management.
CONGER SIGNED.
Washington, D. C , Dec. 24.���Secretary Hay received a cable from Master Conger at Pekin announcing tnat
he has signed the agreement reached
by the foreign Ministers,with a written explanatory statement setting
foith the exact position of his Government. The text of the statement
is not forwarded by Mr. Conger, but
it is understood to be based upon the
laat instructions he received from the
depurtmont which, while disapproving the inclusion in the agreement of
some of the more severe language,
accepted it ns the best arrangement
that could be mnde at that time.
DIVINE   HEALER.
Who Has Captured   the Patronage  of
New York's Swell Set.
Mrs. La Walden, of Paris, is staying at the Plaza in a suite of rooms
which costs her 835 a day. It is said
she is doing a land-office business
with those of the upper ten who have
come under her magic spell. When
she went to Paris not very many
months ago Bhe stopped at a humble
live-dollar-a-week boarding house, nnd
was known to the boarding house
mistress bb Mrs. Walden of Waco,
Tcx_B. Probably no man or woman
of modern time has crossed the water
dividing America and France to
greater financial adva-tnge than Mrs.
Walden.
Tales of the wonderful things she
can do for the flick without the aid of
medicine began to come to this side
last summer. Since then scores of
wealthy Americans have returned from
Paris bearing testimony to and much
faith in this strange daughter of the
Lone Star State, ller method of healing may bo described in many ways,
but she prefers to call it divine power.
Some have accuBed her of working
with a concealed battery, but her
friends denounce WiIb as malicious.
Most of her patients aro women, but
bhe has been known to trent men,
provided they were known to possess
sufficient wealth. Her women patients are treated very much as tbe
patients In a massage establishment.
In cases of rheumatism, for example,
La Wclden goes through a weird incantation accompanied by tho gestures generally seen In Mme. Herrmann 'b sleight-of-hand pcrformnnceB,
and then applies her large, strong
hands to the afflicted parts.
Her touch, it is said, will raise a
blister. If the patient is not strong
enough to stand her electric touch La
Welden will call for a silver bowl of
distilled water. This she favors with
her "wonderful" touch and then
bathes the sick one.
The woman will tell very little of
ber past, except that she married unhappily, and in a moment uf distress
10 yeare ago she received the power of
healing the sick. She traveled with-
��� out suocess Id this country until tbe
Paris Exposition opened. She went
there on a chance, put up at a small
hotel, and within a few weeks was
making 8100 a day.
Sho moved to a larger hotel and
practiced with increased success until
the police got after her for practicing
without a license. Then sho refused
to see anyone, not even hor royal patients. She lived quietly in Paris until
about 10 days ago, when she started
for New York. She has a daughter 111
Texas, and It is believed Mr. Walden
lives thero also.���New York Special

IN MANLEY
VS. COLLOM
Mr.  Justice Walkem  Gives
Judgment With Costs
for Plaintiff.
Decision Rendered In Case
Heard Here Last
Month.
On Saturday morning at Rossiand,
Mr. Justice Walkem delivered judgment in the case of Manley vs. Collom,
tried at NelBon, in favor of tbe plaintiff with costs, at the same time saying that the defendant, Mr. Collom,
manager of the Arlington, although
appaiently in the invidious position
of a claim jumper, had acted in an
upright and honorable manner aud
in one that was oalculated to serve
the beat interests of his employers. It
seems that these two mining cluin-B,
the Arlington and the Burlington,
which were supposed to be touching
each other and through which was
running a common lead. On an accurate survey of the properties it was
discovered that there was a gap or
fraction between the two, through
which ran the main ledge of the property. One lluller, who was stated by
the judge in his verbal judgment to
be foreman of either the Arlington or
Burlington discovering the matter,located the claims in his own name.
Afterwards Foreman Haller having
some groundless misgivings as to tho
validity of his title determined to
abandon the property. On hiB journey downwards to the recorder's office
for the purpose of executing his design of abandonment he communicates
his plaa to another man Cooper. The
latter suggests that the claim be relocated not by himself but by Halpin,
a miner of the Slocan who bad never
np to that timo seen the property nnd
who apparently has not seen it up to
date. Tho number of Mr. Hulpin's
certificate is obtained from him and
the relinquished claim is relocated in
his name. Next the three proceed to
sell a halt interest in the property to
the plaintiff for the sum of 80,000.
In the meantime Manager Collom,getting news of the matter, came to the
conclusion that the whole matter was
a fraud and that tbe four men including tbe plaintiff, Manley, had joined
together in it. He therefore jumps
the claim and in consequence of this
action the plaintiff brings in suit.
Tne plaintiff, accordiug to the evidence, had taken every pains that lay
within his power to satisfy himself
as to tbe validity of the title of the
vendors. The judge therefore found
that Manley was an innocent purchaser, without any knowledge of tbe
circumstances under which the land
had been acquired. He had examined the lecord at the mining oflice and
saw that the title as far ae the records would give him any informntion,
wns without blemish. The court
therefore held thut undur the circumstances the purchase of Manley of the
half Interest ought to be sustained
as he had paid cash for it and the decision was given in accordance.

Scarlet Fever Gases In Nelson That are Not Quarantined.
Aldermen are Asked to Inquire Into Existing
Conditions.
The Miner lias been asked a second
time to call the attention of the health
authorities und the Aldermen to the
conditions prevailing in the City in
eonneetion with what has almost
reached an epidemic of scnrletina and
scarlet fever. There la no desire to
frighten anyone, as there is not cause
for fright if the matter Is taken in
hand at onco, but if matters are allowed to continue as they are at tbe
present time it will only be a few
weeks before parents will have ample
cause for anxiety.
The Provincial health act provides
that houses in which scnrletina and
scarlet fever exists shall be quarantined for a period of six weeks. There
are homes in Nelson now in which
there are cases of these diseases which
are not quarantined and so far as the
authorities know the Inmates of these
homes nre mingling with their social
nnd nusincss associates. In every c*��e
the health authorities have been duly
notified but have taken no action.

one of Mr. White's sons is lying ill
with scarletina. As soon as the case
was diagonised as such the health
authorities were informed. Notwithstanding this the house has not been
quarantined and hud Mr. White himself not taken the necessary precautions bis other children would have
been allowed to attend school and
mingle with their playmates. There
is another such case on Cedar Street
and others in various portions of the
City.
Ordinary care will prevent scarlet
fever spreading but left alone it rapV
idly becomes epidemic.
Most malignant cases of scarlet fever may be contracted from contagion with Bcirlctinu. the latter being
a mild form of scarlet fever. It is as
necessary, therefore, that scarletina
should be quarantined as it is that
scarlet fever should be quarantined.
A GRAND DISPLAY.
Tho Retail Store of   P.  Burns &   Co.,
Presents a   Magnificent Sight.
Ono of the sights that attract the
army of shoppers today Is the display
of dressed meat in the commodious
store of r\ Burns & Co. The wall, are
almost entirely hidden behind rows
of carcasses, dressed with a skill that
speaks volumes for the ubillty of the
00mpany's butchers and decorated iu
a manner that redounds to their artistic tastes. One would Imagine that
meat is not tho best thing in the
world to use for decorations, but such
an idea is quickly dispelled by ft
glimpse of the store. The west window contains a tree,loaded with small
game of all descriptions which evidently whets the uppctito of a large
bear which is embracing the trunk
aa if anxious to rob the branches of
some of the dainty men.-,1s. This evening the east window will be dressed
and Manager Frank Paddock and hia
staff promise something highly artistic in accordance with the general
scheme of decoration. No ono In Nelsou should miss this display, which
certainly cannot be surpassed by any
���if its kind in Canada. The store waa
thronged with visitors today and all
agreed that it bent anything tbey had
ever seen.
Today the company Is distributing
turkeys free to any families where the
exchequer Is so low that they cannot
afford to buy this necessary adjunct
to true Christmns joy. Up to 1 o'clook
this nfternoon the company had Bold
no less than 4,000 pounds of turkey
which would indicate that very few
tables in Nelson will be without it
tomorrow.
KILLED HIS FATHER.
Chicago, Dec. 24.���To Bhlcld hia
mother from abuse and to save hlm��
self from a beating with a poker, Albert Albertsun, aged 17, yesterday
shot and killed his father at their
home in Wcntworth Avenue. Young
Albortson was arrested.
SLOAN RIDING.
San Francisco, Dec. 24.���It la announced that Tod Sloan will ride
Vesuvius at Tanforan on Christmas day, under a license granted
him by the San Francisco Jockey
Club. It is possible that he may continue to accept mounts during the
winter meeting.
A friend^ asked us the other day
what wo thought Christ would do if
He was running Tho Herald. We

The Nelson Miner
CHRISTMAS GREETING.
It la the last Christmas of the century. The thought is not without
Its saddening influences, but Thu
Miner nevertheless hopes that to all
its readers It will be a merry one. It
wishes a Merry Christmas to all the
people of Nelson; to the old and to
the young, to the good and to the
bad, and In all sincerity to Its enemies as muoh as to its   friends.
An esteemed correspondent at Oril-
11a, whose letter appears herewith,
thinks that the present interchange of
postage stamps between this country
and the United States Is already sufficient for all practical purposes. It is
fairly liberal, no doubt, and aa far ar
It goes works satisfactorily, but because it does Is the very reason why it
Should be extended If possible. The
reciprocal arrangement with regard
to postcards does not meet tbe condition which we have had in view.
The Minor, for instance, iB frequently
In receipt of letters of inquiry
from the I'nited Strtes, in
which are enclosed stamps for reply.
This Ib no doubt tbe experience of
many others. The stamps, of course,
are useless, and are thrown aside
and wasted. Why not agree to make
them available? It is often necessary
to write to some place in the United
States for Information on some point.
The writer would be glad to enclose
a stamp for reply, but on reflection
knows that it could not be used if he
did. Why should it not be made good?
The reply postcard meets this difficulty to a certain extent, but not entirely, fcr the reason that it is not always desirable to have the contents
exposed. There may be difficulties
which we do not suspect in effecting
an agreement of tikis kind, but we do
not see that the postal revenues of
either country would suffer by It, nor
can we conceljre any other reason
why the convenience should be denied.	
Naturally tbe London presB is exasperated at the conduct of the United
States Senate In reference to the Hay-
Pauncefote treaty. So, for that matter, is the better class of the newspapers of the United States. We think,
however, that The London Times carries its exasperation to an extreme
longth when it says in effect that
President McKinley will be guilty of
discourtesy if he transmits the mutilated treaty to the British Government. We are very Bure no disoourt-
eay will be Intended, and we do not
Bee how any can be Imagined. The
treaty-making power under the constitution of the United States belongs
as much to the Senate as to the President. The latter takes the initiative, but with full knowledge that
whatever he does is subject to tbe revision and alteration of the Senate.
He would simply defy this power, and
affront it, if he refused to hand on
any determination it came to respecting this or any other treaty. It Is
said that without comment of any
kind he will transmit tho amended
Nicaragua Canal convention, and
Lord Lansdowne will receive it as the
product of the full treaty-making
power of the United States. If not
acceptable to tbo British Government
it will not be ratified, and there the
matter will drop. If friction shall result, it would bo manifestly unfair to
saddle the responsibility on the Preei
dent alone.      	
The Toronto Mall opens a leading
article on the new century nnd Pacific
trade with the following paragraph :
"With the ushering in of the new
ocntury is lifted the curtain on
new and vast theatre of traffic I'he
Pacific ocean comes into an era of
commerce, and instead of being a
sunderer of nations will now be a
medium of close connection. In the
past the mighty resources of thut
ocean for promoting trado relations
and for building up the material
wealth of the countries on Its shores
have been utilised to but un inslgniti
cant degree of their capacity. Com
pared with the tiafflc ou tho North
Atlantic, that on the North Pacific is
negligible. The gieat expanse of
ocean between North America and
China is almost as still a blank as tin
prairies were two generations ago
Yet the Pacific is flanked by contl
nents whose powers of production are
many times thoae of Europe. These
powers aro beginning to exert their in
fiuenoes on the course of affairs In the
Pacific, and before tho new contury
is far advanced they will have mado
that ocean scarcely less busy than the
Atlantic is. " To Canadians the time
has about arrived to turn their eyes
and thoughts westward, and to grasp
the opportunities that are presenting
themselves. It shonld be the duty of
our Western members to press tho
great possibilities of the Pacific trade
on the notice of Parliament. Perhaps Mr. Galliher will take up this
matter as one of bis hobbies. It is In
every respect worthy of his best
effort. He might Inquire.for Instance,
why our trado with nn enlightened
nation like Japan, with forty-five
millio.is of a population, i . so Infinitesimal, while the opportunities for
making it of magnificent dimensions
aro already opon.
All the best business men of Nelsou
are astute enough to appreciate the
value of The Miner us un advertising
medium. It is chiefly valuable because uf the fact that it enters into
more of tbo homes of Nelson than
any other single newspaper published,
and it Is the homes of Nelson that
are tho shoppers of Nelson.
In New York It is proposed to welcome the advent of tho new century
by assembling nn Immense congregation of choirs and choral societies and
singing the Nutiounl Anthem on the
steps of the City Hall on the stroke
of twelve, midnight. This is to be
one, and the most striking, feature of
the celebration. Toronto is agitat
ing for some similar ceremonial in
honor of the great event���tho death of
an old and thu birth of a new cuntury.
Everywhere throughout tho civilised
world It will bo made tho occasion of
some unusual demonstration. Every
hamlet in Canada will celebrate, but
In nearly overy case the nature of the
celebration will be left to chance and
to the last moment. It would be much
better to plan a fow days in advance,
and to agree on somo ceremonial in
which all who desired could partici
pate.

Fin de Sieele.
uv Dear Uncle,-I promised to
_..!& vou when wo had been here a
��ar a/d had got an idea of things iu
Serai. To tell you what has happen-
K In that time would take too long,
^t a few words will snttice to tell
J__ what has NOT oc.urred. None of
the _irls have got maried, spite of all
.fforts to the contrary, nor has my
tntutious Theodore located a millionaire making paystreak on any of the
Joraerous prospecting trips he has
t.keu I simply cannot induce him
Jo _ive up tramping among the mountains and when I ask to be allowed
to accompany him even up to the
.ummlt of MorningMountnin, he looks
compassionately at me and says, "Vou
^or little thing, the wind would
flow you away before you got halfway up, ��nd if you did manage to
reach tho top,all you would see would
b_ more hills. " That is what 1 want
���, Beo and when Reglnal and Andy
come here. I will bo sure of all tbe
outing 1 want. My sons are better to
Be than their father is.
There have been many improvements
In this fair City since I came here. It
nouhl take a whole newspaper to toll
jou In brief, less than half, but as I
know you aro Interested, I will just
mention a fow. We have a gas plant;
If vou ever sat trying to read or work
by the ligbt they called "electric,"
you would know how to appreciate
the change. One night when we were
Lo church, without warning the lights
���cnt out. The usual llutter, spasmodic twittering among the young-
iters and little suppressed shrieks
among the ladies took place. A rush
was made tor lamps which could not
lie fouDd just for a little while, etc.
tommy leaned over and whispered
audibly to mo, "Mamma, Someone ',ns
dipped a .ail ��_ water out of the creek
and thnt has stopped the power." I
put rov hand over his mouth but ho
had been heard and his remark caused
quite a titter in our near neighborhood. Gas is an established fact,
however, and sueh troubles arc things
of the past.
Many  beautiful   homes   have   been
built In   every   part of   the City.    A
n��_Dificent  brick   block   adorns   the
corner of baker and Ward Streets.    It
il known   as   "The K.-W.-C."   It is
tjitee stork'H high and has a multiplicity of   windows���all    plate    glass.
Wlien the stores are occupied they will
rank with the finest in  tho   West and
will be a  lasting  monument   to   the
enterprise of the ilrm of Kitrkpatriek,
Wilson St  Clements.    The    structure
ctnt JM.OOO,   and is  approached from
the four  corners,   by     four   43 cent
orOMlnj[fl,    the  most   villinnous   you
���rer law.    I nearly lost my boots the
other day ia orossing  and Tommy did
lnw one of his rubbers in a mud-hole
i_ the centre. I suggestd that he carry
the other back   and  deposit it In   the
ntlfhborhood, but   he   thought   somo
day a one-logged   boy   might  come
���loo; and it would   be hotter to  save
the odd rubber, for   nothing  lost  on
that Crossing   would   ever   be  found
again; cute youth, my Tommy, eh?   I
think if  we   had   "City Mothers" in
Council, instead of   "City   Fathers,"
there would   be   a change   In tho appearance of certain parts of the streets
md an  Injanotion    restraining  the
ihowcring of  the   sidewalks with tobacco juloo, but  as K.    Kipling  says,
"that Is another story."
Dy way of digression, just heie,people In the East think   we   Westerners
ire living   in   the   primeaval   forest,
tome of them should   walk   down 11a-
_r Street and   see   the storeB and the
ioppers.    Every   known   luxury and
iee��_ity, both in  drygoods and other
lies ire  here   in   profusion   and   at
prices, except in tlie case of   a few of
Ihe more perishable products, at   rea-
-nable prices;   no need to   send East
for anything.
As an instance of how   back woodsy
*e ire considered, a, friend   of  mine
received   by   mail   yesterday,   a   one
pound   tin   of     plum-pudding     for
Christmas!   Ye   gods,     and      Cousin
Cl��r_!   Did we   laugh?   Well we did.
"hit Christmas   box���no,    can���cost
shout 84 cents and   there   were   three
five cent  stamps  on   the  wrapper, it
tame over two thousand   miles, nnd a
junjry child   conld eat it all lit once.
"J friend offered   to keep it unopen -
M until the first wedding takes  place
>n our circle,   but   I suggested that it
���� enclosed in a  plush   lined   casket
��nd exhibited in J. J. Walker's   win

Just now thu municipal election is
the absorbing topic of the day.
(Theodore says all I do not know
ubout politics would till a small library.) I am tired of elections. First
there was the Provincial, then tbe
Dominion, and now tbe City. We
have two candidates in the arena, of
equal attainments in every respect, it
is said. I do not know either of the
gentlemen, but hope tho best one will
have the honor of being the butt of
every faultfinder for a year to come.
I shall be glad when thc matter is decided for my house has only been the
boarding plaee of Mr. Ilrown for
many moous. I'erliaps I will be allowed the pleasure of cultivating his acquaintance when all public business
has been settled. Next year I shall
insist on him entering the field himself. If ho refuses I will part with
him. With all the compliments of
the   season,   I am   your   affectionate

INTERCHANGE OF STAMP.S.
Editor Miner:
Sir���It seems to me that we already
have as near an interchange of postage Btamps as is practicable with the
United States. If a reply postcard be
sent from one country to the other the
reply half will bo returned without
additional stamp. If sending to uny
other country in tbo Postal Union,
ailix one cent stamp to each half of
the card; or if enclosed in a letter
with the necessary stamp to make it a
two-cent card, it will be returned
without additional charge.
Another convenience sought hy the
Canadian Vostinaster-Oeueral is an
intercliage of postal orders (called in
Canada postal notes), for remitting
small amounts between Canada and
the Mother Country. Still another,
the delivery of newspapers and periodicals from ono country to subscribers
in the other, on payment of tho domestic rate of the country of origin us
is now done with tho United States.
These reforms are advocated by the
Hritish Empire League In Canada,
our historical societies, the Hon. Wm.
Mulock, M. P., Cunadian l'ostrauster-
General, and Mr. Ilonniker Beaton,
M. 1'., for Canterbury, in the Imperial House of Commons, and were endorsed hy Sir Charles Tupper when
High Commissioner for Canada in
London. But the Imperial Postoffice
Department has so fa.' successfully
blocked the way. Yours faithfully,
G. H. H.
