GERMAN VIEW OF
British and American Action
Considered Illegal.
ENGLAND UNFRIENDLY
This is the Opinion of the German Press*
���The English Oousider the Ger-
mansjire Obstinate.
Berlin. April 8.-Both Mr. White.
the United States ambassador, and
the British ambassador, Bir Frank
Lasoelles, conferred with Baton Von
Buolow todav with* reference to the
latest Samoan developments. The German Government earnestly urges the
speedy appointment and despatch of tlie
commission so as to prevent further
difficulties,
A foreign cilice offloia), empowered
to speak lor the Government, tells tbo
correspondent of the Associated Press
tbat the action of the Americans aud
British is a clear violation of the
Samoan treaty and that Germany intends to adhere to tbis view. She thus
considers the new Government of Samoa illegal and hns so instructed her
ambassadors at Washington and London.
Berlin, April 8.���Tbo Samoan Question continues to bold the attention
tif*,tbo public, Ibe newspapers being
Idled with despatches commenting on
the subject. Tbe Emperor has devoted
muob time to the matter and has
conferred several times on the subject
with the Minister on Foreign Affairs,
It is interesting to note German distrust and dissatisfaction at the latest
events are almost entirely aimed at
(.Irene Britain. The delay of Greal
Britain in accepting tho proposals or a
settlement of tho difficulty which
United States Ambassador White attributed mainly to lhe absence of tbe
Marquis of Salisbury from London is
generally interpreted in Germany as
showing distinctly unfriendly motives
ou tho part, of Great Britain.
The press comment is in tbe same
key, but naturally, more outspoken.
In a lengthy article the Krauze Zeitung
obarges Great Britaiu with bad faith
in the whole matter, alleging thai
she is "Trying for her own sellisli
purposes to entangle the United States
into hostility with all tbe continental
powers and at the same time drug her
into a polioy of expansion." The article concluded : "We say all this re-
grotully. An honest entente with
(iroat Britain would be an undenialiii
advantage, but perhaps it. is as well
thus early to be effectually undeceived
as it may spare us later and more painful surprises."
Thu Hoorsen Courier says the reason of Great Britain's delay in as
senting to Germany's propositions was
founded on ber desire to continue with
the aid of the United States, ber pol
icy of "Spitting Germany" andolaiins
to lind proof of tbis attitude in the
London press, which it accuses of reluming its old tactics of "Slandering
Germany and breeding trouble between th3 United States and Germany."
Loudon, April   8.���The  unravelling
of tlio Samoan entanglement is follow
ed  with   interest   here   especially   in
colonial   circles.    Germany's   "Obsti
uacy ," as ber altitude lias been termed here   from   the   beginning   of  the
troubles,   is regarded   as "Iuoompre*
liensihle, "uud   is   said   to be only e.v
plained liy   a   desire lo get   the uppei
band In the islands. This view is expressed by a colonial expert, who,
Writing to the Morning Post, says:
"Kor some reason never yet explain
id Germany regards Samoa as an important link in her foreign polioy,
Bother than give up Samoa, tlie Germans would go to war. No doubt
Germany ban not forgotten what tt
prize Heligoland bas proved and the
German chancellor possibly anticipates a more Important deal if he can
only get possession of Samoa. "
The newspapers point out the growing importance of Samoa to New Zeal
and and the signilicance of tbo hitter's
offer to send volunteers to Samoa.
The Spectutor, which thinks that
"Preposterous importance" bus been
given to tho whole affair says "Great
Britain only needs a coaling station,
if she needs that, But we must, vigorously support Amerioan claims and
Ibe business will be tedious and expensive. ''
THE   TREATY TO BE  RATIFIED,
The   Final   Ceremonies   Will Be Per-
formed in Paris Next Week.
Washington, April 8.���The exchange
of ratifications of the treaty of peace
between Spain and tbe United Slates
signed al Paris will probably lake
place in this city next week, and lhat
ceremony will be followed by a proclamation liy President McKinley oil!-
ciully announcing the dose of the war
witli Spain and the resumption of
friendly lelations, commercial and
Otherwise, between the two countries.
The Spanish copy of the treaty
whioh wus signed by the Queen Re-
Bent March 17, is expected to reach
here Monday and Ihe arrangement of
the    formalities     attending   the   ox-
ohange   of   ratifications    will     be
promptly    perfected.    The    exchange
of ratifications will be followed
promptly by the payment of 120,000,-
000 to the Spanish Government on account of the session of the   Philippine
islands to the United States.

A WONDERFUL REPORT.
London, April 8.���The report of Baron Oromer,the British agent and consul general in Egypt, is looked upon

and a triumph of administrative foresight and military vigor. Ho advocates extending the railroad from
Khartoum through Abu Ilarclis to

Nile, wh'ch Sir Samuel Baker called

NELSON. B. C.
THOSE PUBLIC BUILDINGS.
The delegates -whom the Board of
Trade aud City Council sent toOttawi.
to present the claim of Nelson to Government buildings suitable for tbe accommodation of the public business
went armed with a strong case presented in tbe form of a petition to the Gov-
ernor-General-in-Council. There are
three Government Departments vibicb
do a large business here, the Poit-
Office, the Customs, and the Inland
Kevenue. Last year tbe sale of postage stamps in Nelson aggregated $14,-
459; the Saving Bank deposits were
���38,170; there were issued Money Orders to the amount of $80,9011, aud tbe
Money Orders paid were $1)9,242.
These figures represent the importance
of Nelson as a postal centre. We exported last year products valued at $3,-
695,624 ;and our imports were $588,753,
on which duties were collected to the
amount of $160,772, For the nine
months ending February last tbe Inland revenue collected here was $40, -
094. In customs taxes of various kiuds
we contributed to the Federal revenue
over $200,000. This one fact tells in
a word tbat Nelson is a port of very
considerable consequence.
There can he no question, in the face
of these figures, of the extent of Government business done hore. Tbe next
point to consider is the accommodation provided for it. The three Departments are pretty well scattered
over the Oity, and wretchedly housed.
A stranger entering the. rrttice of any
one of them would come to the conclusion that Canada is hut one remove
from ��� oonditiou of poverty or bankruptcy. The Customs aud Inland Kevenue offices are not in keeping with
their character or the busiuess doue in
them. But the Post Office is simply a
disgrace, unworthy tbe Government
and unworthy the City which supports it. There is not a citizen with
aiy pride iu tbe place or any refinement of feeling who is not ashamed
to point it out to a stranger. The petition is mild in describing it; "It is
���n insignificant building, totally inadequate to the requirements of tbe
place, aud being a very small wooden
building is insecure and impossible
to be kept properly ventilated, and becomes so crowded that it is sometimes
impossible for business meu to get
their mail. " For the wrotched accommodation provided for the business of
tbe three Departments tbe Governmeut
pay in rents a sufficient sum to represent
the interest on $35,000, more than
ample to erect a building tbat would
accommodate ull three iu comfort and
convenience.
The Government have lurge business
interests h.u-e, end fail most shamefully iu providing decent facilities for
attending to them. What claim hare
we to demand something butter? On
this point there can he as little question as ou uuy of the others. Nelson is
important pnough to entitle it to every
consideration at the hands of thn Government. It is the idiief railway and
oommoroial centre of Southern British
Columbia. It is due to it that it
should bo provided with buildings for
the accommodation of Government
business somewhat iu keeping with
its importance. It contributes more
revenue thau scores of towns in Eastern Provinces that buve been provided
With public buildings, und to refuse
them here is a discrimination that is
without either reason or justice. We
belong to * Province that pays iuto
the Dominion treasury more per capita
than any othor, and that receives less
in return. If the Government wore
disposed to be impartial in tbe distrihu
tiou of their favors they would consider tbis and hasten to accede to a petition that asks for uot only what is
right and reasonable but necessary.
The Rossland Record is surely forgetting itself in the following: "It
now transpires that the miners working in Rosslaud camp are better paid
than those in the Slocan, where so
much fuss is beiug made over tbe
eight-hour law. If the Mayor of Nelson, the newspapers aud miue owners,
instead of chasing about and agitating
the trouble over the eight-hour law.
would devote their time aud energy
to their respective business, that section of the country would be far better
off." This is uncivil, not to say impertinent. The question of wages
may be open to dispute ; but the Mayor
of Nelson, the newspapers, aud mine
owners are attending strictly to their
business in protesting against a law
that threatens to givo needless disturbance to tbo curreut of industry iu this
portion of tbe Province. The law in
question is a matter of public concern
in respect to which every citizen bus
a right to take the course his judgment
approves. As for thej rest it may be
added that no one in Nelson conceives
it necessary to go to Rosslaud for guidance in behariour, or for evidences of
greater prosperity than they have at
home.

THE ORANBROOK CASE*
H. Bullock-Webster Returned Last Evening With Three Prisoners*���
Trial Next Month.
Folix Paist is now lodged iu the
Provinoial goal here charged with the
murder of Edward Ryan ut Oranbrook on the 27th of Maroh. Mike
Messico is also hero churned with beiug an accessory after the fact
Tho two wero committed for trial
hy Justices of the Peace John Hutchinson aud J. II. Laidlow at Oreston
ou Thursday last and were brought to
the City last evening liy Chief of Provincial Polico Bullock-Webster, who
has spout the past ten days at tbe scene
of the murder working rn the cass.
Tho preliminary hearing occupied
some days and the story of the crime,
as it. came out iu the evidence is as
follows:
On the night of March 21, Paist and
Mossica, two Italian laborers, went to
a disorderly house at the corner of
Van Hoi-no and Louis streets in Cranbrook aud asked foi admittance. A
woman at tho door refused to let thein
outer and some vory uncomplimentary
terms wore used on both sides. Two
of the woman's satellites, who were
in tho l.ous*) at the time, thought
they would avenge tho insults and
commenced to maul the Italians Paist
drew a knife nnd Mansfield, ono of
tho aggressors, returned to tbe house
and secured a poker. With this be
inflicted a nasty wound over Paist's
eye. After a short light Mansfield
and his comrade, Mathrson, returned
to the house and the Italians went towards the railway track, abont 10 feel
distant,   Ten minutes or  so after the.
light occurred the men and women in
the bouse heard a shot tired and a few
minutes after tiny heard another. Immediately after the second one wi s
fired tin* body of Edward Kyan v. as
found on the railway tiark.
The statement made by Paist himself makes up tbo time that elans, cl
alter the two Italians left the house
anil before Ihe last shot was liieil. lie
says he wont over to the railway,
crawled under a box car aud after Icing there a short time ho saw a man
approaching him with a coupling pin
in his baud. To save him self lie lit ri
at tho man, killing bin*. Other evidence was to the ott'eot that Paist must
have gone to the box car where the
laborers lived and secured the revol
ver.for had he had it with him when
the row occurred be would have un
doubtodly have used it then Ho denies
going after it, however. A man passed
along the track with a lantern and
saw Paist standing, revolver iu hand,
as if waiting for some one. A few
moments aftor a shot was Bred end
thoso who ran to the scene found Kyan expiring.
It therefore appears that Paist secured his revolver und took up his stand
on tho railway, evidently expecting
that Mansfield and Matheson would
pass him as they came from the house
Kyan caino along and mistaking him
for Munstiold, lio shot him, tho bullet
going directly through the centre of
the heart. The Crown's contention
will evidently be thut us Piast hud
time after the attack lo recover 1 is
temper it was a case of murder, ho
reason whatever for the killing **l
Ryan oould no shown so it was undoubtedly a case of mistaken identity.
That thu murdered man had no wen
pon in bis hand as he approached Paist
wus evident from the fact thai when
the body was found a small clny pipe
was clutched in ono hand and then
was nothing in the other. Thai
Puist wus not bidden beneath a ear
was proven by the mun who saw 111 in
standing in the middle of the   Hack   a
moment  bofore  the  shot  wus  Axed.
Thu evidence of the   engineer und fixe-
man of nn engine which was slandin:*
near tho scene of the shooting was ll
thu ell'ect that, Kyan after being shot,
sli'.ggerurt from thu track in a direction he would not havo taken had the
���hot been lirud from honciilh Ibe ear as
Paist chained. .Some of the wilncssi*.
heard two shots nnd others only one.
What happened to tho llrst one is a
mystery as there was un interval of
somo minutes between the two. In
the revolver found on Pmsl when ur*
rested there wero two empty shells nml
four cartridges.
After tho shooting Paist. and Messico
wont to the lint of another Italian und
asked for admittance us they wereoov
oral with blood thoy were not allowed
in und they then passed along the
truck to tbo north ol' tlio town, Stopped
ut a store and purchased some bread
and a pair of shims. They then started
for tho boundary lino. Oouslnble
Barnes of Oxanhioofe gave chase.   As
luck would have it   there hud   been   a
light full of snow   that   night   so   lhe
foot murks of tho men   weio   plainly
discernnble. These woro followed cure
fully.   In places they separated as the
two fugitives purled company but still
maintained a southerly dlxeotionScom*
ing together   again   ubout   two   miles
farther on. Constable Barnes followed them in u very clever mariner
und in the morning of the *'Mli found
the two Italian** as they were crossing thu 101k river above Elko, They
bud waded up to theix wnisls I ml
tho wnter was too cold ana thoy returned to the hunk where thoy were standing
shivering when luken into custody.
When Messico could not be convielcd
with the commission of tbo crime he
waB arrested on the Charge of being
an accessory after the fact and on this
charge was sent   up for   trial.    Mans-
fteld was sent up for tin-*- onibs al i
hard labor ou the ehurgo of vigrancy.

MINES OF
I        KOOTENAY I
Mi. E. Nelson Fell, Superintendent
of the Athabasca, has furnished The
Miner with tbe official figures of the !
March run at the Athabasca. The
total clean-up lor March is larger thau
that of previous months, and there
ll every probability tbat this month's
and succeeding months' will be larger
���till
The March run consisted   of 3b days
and seven hours during which time 4bb
tous   of   ore   were   crushed.    The ap
proximate value of   tbe bullion  recov- I
sred was 18,167.46, aud the gross value
of tbe concentrates  amounted   to  |2,-I
196.66,    making   the   total amount   of
the values   recovered   110,888.11.    The1
value of the bullion   extracted per ton j
of ore crushed was   117.64,   while   the,
values of the concentrates were  $4.57. !
making   the   total   values     recovered
from a ton of ore $22.11.
...
Crawford Creek is likely to lie the !
scene of lively mining development
this summer as there are several good
properties which were worked last
aeasou and which showed great promise
Notably among them is the silver
Hill group on Canyon Creek a
branch of Crawford Creek, which is
being operated by the London and Consolidated Mining Company, shares in
which company were readily selling
last summer from two to seven cents,
but are now hard to get at 35 cents.
The Humboldt which is under bond
to James McLaren was extensively
worked last su nimer and during the
coming season considerably more development work will done.
The Commonwealth and Empress
groups at the head of Hooker owned
by Mr. T. G. Procter are properties
upon which considerable work bas
already been done, and during tbe
summer it is anticipated the work on
these promising prospeots will be vigorously pushed.
The Big Copper or Bracebridgr
group on the St. Mary's slope, beyond
tbe head of Crawford Creek, is under bond to the Pyramid Copper Syndicate of London who worked th <
property until late in December when
snow made it imposible to get in supplies, as the property promises well tbe
bond will doubtless be taken up and
extensive work on the property will bt
done as soon as the snow goes.
The Welcome group which lieB
across the ravine from the Big Copper
has a fine surface showing of some
16 feet of ore and arrangements an*
being made whereby it will be further opened up in the near future.
The Blank Prince group at the bead
of Sawyer Creek a tributary of Crawford Creek is a oopper property of great
promise which is under bond to B
Vancouver Syndicate. There an
many more promising prospects on
Crawford Creek and its tributaries,
upon which considerable work will bi
done during this season, and, owing
to the encouraging showings of those
claims which have already been open
ed up, quite a lively period of development is expected in this section.
*   *   *
The annual meeting of the Dundee
Gold Mining Company, was held in
Rossland on Thursday. The first business done was tbe election of a board
of directors and resulted in the election
of the old board as follows: Charles
Dundee, W. A. Galliher, J. L. Parker.
W. D. Barclay, C. F. P. Conybeare,
Ernest Kennedy and Robert Scott.
The report of Ernest Kennedy
secretary-treasurer, wns read aud adopted. The meeting of the shareholders
then adjourned aud a meeting of directors was then held.
The report of J. L. Parker, the superintendent, was read, and it was
decided that thej recommendations] he
made should be carried out. Among
other things he recommended^ that tin-
shaft be dfepeued to) 500 feet, and ti
immediately replace the plant which
was recently destroyed by a fire.
Mr. Parker resigned the position ot
superintendent, giving as a reason lor
bis action that be was unable to give
all his time to thej management of the
Dundee niine|aud mill because his pi l-
vtitf* busiuess did not give, him tin
necessary time. He recognized the
fact that the mine uud concentrating
mill needed all the time of a superintendent and as he could not devote nil
his attention to them he thought ii
best to resign. The resignation was
accepted.
A committee of three, consisting of
Messrs. Dundee, Kennedy uud Parker,
was appointed to receive applications
for the position J of superintendent,
made vacant by tbe resignation of Mr
Parker, and the place will be tilled
just as Mn n as the proper man can be
secured.
The trustees elected the following
oftlcors to serve for tbe ensuing yeiir :
Charles Dundee, President; \V. A.|Gnl-
liher, Vice-President; R. A.O. Hotiben,
Secretary-Treasurer; Mr. Parker was
chosen as consulting ougineer for the
company.
