ARE TOO MANY PUPILS, a commissioner's troubles. \QUARRELS ARE ENDED.!,THE MILL IS BLOWN UP
The Government has Paid no Attention to
Bequests lor Moie Kooui and Two
Additional Teachers
The continued negleot of the Nalson
I'u Mi;1 school by the powers that be
al Victoria has culminated very seriously. So overcrowded have the two
���junior classes become that after May 1
the rooms will be closed, and will remain closed nrfcil tho Government can
lind time to turn its attention from
bungling mining legislation.and supply more room for the pupils here.
This was docidel at a meeting of
the Board of Sohool Trustees held last
evening in the office of Dr. Arthur,
the secretary. Tho matter was fully
pone into and the trustees deoided
that the only course open w s to close
the rooms,thereby providing relief for
the whole school. It appears that the
weeks ago Dr. Arthur wrote the Attorney-General, whose department deals
with educational affairs asking him
to give his immediate attention to the
completion of the two rooms in the
upper story of the school building
autl to have them ready by the first* of
May. by whioh time the overcrowding
would be s.) severe that it would no
longer be possible to conduct classes,
To this letter Hon. M. Martin deigned
no reply, not even the stereotyped response thai he would take the matter
into his consideration. The former
H'.'vernuiunt nmdiJ ,1 grunt fm tin appointment of an additional teacher,
but the new government has taken uo
steps to see that the appointment was
made Letter after letter and telegram
afler telegram were despatched to Victoria asking for two additional teacher
but in most instances no answer was received, Tho sum of $126 for incidental expenses was also asked for, but
again the Department received the
rcijuest with silent contempt, at present there! is an outstanding account
for fuel of $70. and there is no money
available to meet the obligation. The
trustees naturally, resent this wanton
carelessness on the part of the Department and decided that the only way to
brill*,' Victoria to time was to adopt no
half measures but. to promptly close
the lower forms and keep them closed
until relief wus provided The trustees
were unanimous on this point and the
motion to close the rooms met with
no opposition. What will happen now
depends entirely upon the aotion of
the Government. Over IHO pupils will
be nimble to receive the benefits of the
pulilic school lor probably some weeks
owing to the inexcusable negleot of the
Department, and this fact will surelv
have the effect of wakening the Minister up to attend to his duties. In
each of tho rooms closed, Mis.
Pearcy's and Miss Wyokhiim's there
h:is been n s'endy attendance of over
sixty while it often reached over seventy. The increase has been rapid
of late and another month would make
the numbers so large tbat standing
room could not well be provided. All
ibis time there are two rooms upstairs
in the new building that need only a
ftw dollars worth of work to make
them fit for holding classes in. Tbis
work, and the appointment of the
new teachers, are absolutely necessary
if the work of the school is to bo cir-
ried on. It remains to bo seen whether
the Government will ever givo the
matter attention or whether Ihe children of Nelson will havo to look elsewhere for (heir education. Afler tbo
meeting last night, at which some
routine business was transacted, Dr.
Arthur wrote tbe following letter
which explains itself:
Nelson, April 20.
Superintendent     of   Education,   Viotoria :
Sir���I am instructed to state that
no answer has been recoived to my letter to tbe Minister of Education under date of April 10, asking for additional grant, of $125 for incidentals,the
immediate completion of the (wo
rooms upstairs in the new building,
and the appointment of additional
teachers. During the last I wo weeks
the two junior departments ot onr
school hnve had a daily average of
more than 00 pupils each, and new pupils are coming iu at the "ate of 10,
or more, per week. These rooms are
badly ventilated, aud the health of tho
pupils is endangered by overcrowding.
The Board has therefore decided to
close these two rooms on May 1, and
keen them closed until accommodation
is provided. As notification of the
congested state of tliese rooms was
given in amnio time to have it corrected by May 1, the responsibility for
losing them must rest with tho Department of Education. Yours tiuly,
E. 0. ARTHUR, Seoretary.
President Schurman Went Too Closo to
the Philippine Lines.
Seattle, Wash:, April vo.���Mail ad-
ivices from Manila received today say
lhat President Schurman, of Cornell
university, a member of the Philippine
commission, had a narrow escapo from
death while with Wheaton's brigade.
He was sitting ou a trench when a
large rebel force opened lire. A stray
shot, warned him to seek cover, wbl'jll
he did by hurriedly falling into the
trench. He lav there more than an
hour while Ihe Filipinos sent Manser
bullets singing over his head. An
occasion.il bullet would graze the top
of Ihe trench ami shower the college
man with dirt.

DHBY BELONG TO THE PROVINCE
Government's     Decision      Regarding
Deadman's Island.
Victoria, April 20. ���It is understood
lhat as a result nf his investigations of
the records of  l*bn   Lauds   ami   Works
Department  the Chief  Commissioner
has reported that he considers both
Deadman's Island. Stanley Park and
Point Grey reserve belong to the Provincial Government. In au iutervie ,
today Premier Semlin stated   that   tbe
o-* eminent had good grounds for
claiming these so-called reserves, and
lhat Steps wonld be taken to protect
the. Province's interests against either
Ihe Dominion or other parties This
seems to settle the content ions of either
Vancouver corporation or of Mr. l.nd-
gate. Anyhow the sland taken by
the Premier and council appears likely
ro lead to sub-tuntial benefit for tho
Province through the investigation
Whioh it has caused.
Mr. Robert Leaven, who was Chief
Commissioner for several years, stated
today there was no question that both
the park and island belong to the
Province.
CORNELL   WON
London, April 20.���The announcement that England and Rns-ia have
signed a self-denying agreement regarding China which is intend,id ro put.
an end to the contention over railway
and other concessions in that conn-
try is the most important nows ot the
day. It is officially confirmed here
this afternoon.and tin* papers nre running it with big head lines. The
preseut agreement puts an end to thn
Anglo-Russian struggle in China, and
is tantamount to a settlement of the
question of lhe spheres of influence of
the two countries. Under the agreement Great Britain has undertaken
not to press railway or other concessions in North China, while Russia
agrees to the British deni ind that no
part of the basin of tho Yuug-Tse-Ki-
ang shall be alienated. Russia also
recognizes explicitly that British commercial iiistercsts are supreme m tbe
Yang-'i'se-Kinng basin, which is understood to extend a considerable distance north and SOUtb of the river,
though UP attempt has heen made to
define the region.
Everything recently has pointed to
Russia's desire for a settlement, in
order to allow the successful exploits
tion of tbe Siberian railway and also
virii a vi, .-. of raising money in Great
Britain for rhe development of the industries of Russia.
London, April 20.���The annual
banquet of the Royal Academy was
held at Burlington House this evening. Replying to the toast to "Her
Majesty and Her Ministers" Lord Salisbury said he did not wish to exaggerate the extent of tho gratifying
agreement signed with Russia, but in
view of the relations which iu tho
course of the last century bad from
time to time prevailed between the
two countries, it was a matter for congratulation that they bad come to au
agreement with respect to Onina,
wbioh to a certain extent would pre
vent tbe liklihood of a collision between
Ihe interests and objects of the two
countries for  the future.
Continuing the Premier said: "We
have talked of alliances. In a certain
sense the phrase is a just one but an
alliance in the sense tlmt with any
mil ion we will go out to war together
and bear the cost and danger together
and for each other, can very rarely
take place. Tbe alliance of which we
speak are alliances of good feeling,
but with peoples and governments,and
are not engagements likely to bring
either side into war. "
Referring to the international conference to be held shortly ut The
Hague, Lord Salisbury said :
"Whether the peace conference will
effect anv improvement in the relations of the nations we do not kuow,
hut ihe fact that such a conference
has been summouod is a good omen
for future peace, and an augury on
whioh all who value the interests of
peace, civilization, and Christianity
may fitly dwell.
HH   ADVOCATED   ELECTRICITY.
Lord Beresford Would   Use Electricity
Both For Cabs and Warships.
London,   April    29.���Lord   Charles
Beresford came forth this week as an
advocate ef automobile ears. He attributed the congestion of Londou
streets In Ihe use of horses, and Raid :
"Wh le I was in New York I wis
supplied with a motor ear *���*��� hioh bad
tlm appearance of a cab and the manners of a kangaroo, hut it always got
mo safely to my destination."
His Lordship also pointed out how
much Great Britain is behind the times
in the use ot electricity. He was
amazed,be said, to see how much work
was douse by electricity on hoard
American warships where the, English
used steam,
MANY MINERS KILLED,
Berlin, April 20.���Owing to un inrush of water at the Ktschnar gold
mines near Toigk, Poland, today, a
shaft in which 06 men were at work
collapsed, 02 of tbe mineis were killed
and nearly all of the remainder wero
seriously injured.
Portland, Ore., April 20.��� President
A. L. Mohler, -. f the Oregon Railway
aud Navigation Company, at 8.80
o'clock this afternoon telegraphed the
ollicials in this oltv from Wardner,
Idaho, that the striking miners bad
fired the Buuker Hill aud Sullivan
mill, und that it was burning. It is
claimed that the mill is loaded with
dynamite and if this proves true, the
entire property will be a total loss.
The striking miners aro also reported
to be in possession of the Northern Pacific and Oregon Railway aud Navigation trains and have oompletu control
of Ihe situation, There are about 100
masked men heavily armed nt hand
about the mine, and there bave been
several skirmishes with tbe authorities, during one of w Inch une man is
reported to have been shot.
Tlv-re are fully 800 miners at Wardner, aud they are forming to go to the
mine in a body and drive out the 270
lion-union men employed there. President Mohler has notified the Governor
��� if Idaho of tlie situation and ollicers
have been despatched to the scene of
the trouble. The Governor has promised to do everything iu his power to
preserve order aud prevent bloodshed,
'int it is believed that unless prompt
ieps are taken there will bo great
ess ot life aud destruction of property, Siuco the telegram from President Mohler was received, the strikers
'"ave cut the wires and telegraphic
communication with Wardner is uow
���ut off.
Later.���Wardner, Idaho, April 29.���
Wardner was today the scene of the
worst riot siuce the deadly labor strike
nf 1802. Oue man is dead anothei
! bought to be mortally wounded, aud
property valued at $250,000 has been
��� iestroyed by giant powder and tire.
Tbe damage was done by union miu-
rs and sympathizers from Canyon
Ireek about. 20 miles from Wardner.
This morning a mob of from 100 to
i.000 men all of them armed.and many
nasked, seized a train it Burke, this
*ide of Canyon Creek. There were
nine box cars aud a passenger coach,
���md they were packed with the mob
Che visitors brought with them 8,000
pounds of giant powder.
DESTROYED   THE MILL.
After a parley of two hours 40 mask
ed men with Winchesters, the Burke
men in the lead and those from Ward-
icr following, started with yells for
he Bunker Hill and Sullivan mill and
other buildings a third of a mile from
ihe depot. They sent pickets ahead
..nd one of the pickets fired a shot as a
-ignal tbat tbe mill was abandoned.
I'bis was misunderstood by the main
body of the mob, who imagined
ihal non-onion miners ill the hills
bad opined fire ou them, and they be-
.tan to fire upou their owu pickets,and
Jack Smith, oue ot the pickets, formerly of British Colombia, aud a noted figure in drill contests, was shot
lead. Ry this time,- the strikers bad
taken possession of tlie Bunker Hill
and Sullivan mill which thoy found
deserted, the manager having directed his employees not to risk their
lives by battling with the mob.
Powder in 00 pound boxes was car
ried from the depot to thi mill. The
heaviest charge was placed under the
briok offloe buildings, other charges
were placed around the mill. Then
tbe boarding house, a frame structure,
wus burned, fuses leading to the
charges were lighted and the strikers,
carrying the dead body cf the picket,
retired to a safe distance. At, 2:80 p
m. tbe first blast went off. It shook
the ground for miles, and buildings in
Wardner, two miles away, trembled.
At intervals of about 00 seconds, four
other charges went off, the fifth being
the largest and completely demolishing
tbe mill. Tbe loss to the Bunker Hill
and Sullivan mines is estimated from
1360.000 to 1800,000. In a f��w minutes the strikers went hack to the station, the whistle was blown for the
stragglers, the mob climbed on board
and at. il o'clock, just three hours after
its arrival, the train started for Can
yon Creek.
This  morning    the   230   non-union
miners at the Bunker Hill    and Sullivan mill had warning of thn   coming
* of the mob, und left tlie mill and took
to rhe hills.
ef the   govennient,  that   the,   journalistic mouthpiece  of   the   government
did not desire   lo   construe   the objectionable utterances as more   than   ibe
remarks of  a   man   who   is   unaccUB-
toraed to measuring his  words.   Some
of ihe newspaper   comments  are   very
significant.    For example,    the Frankfurter Zeitung admits   tbat it sau    no
��� necessity of   the     dispatch   of a large
German squadron to Mauila.   and   asserts that the squadron interfered injudiciously with thej American blockade.
I Tho   Zeitung  adds   this   interference
! was due to instructions from  Emperor
j William.    Even more signicliant is the
i fact that tbe Cologne  Volkes Zeitung.
! the main organ   of   tho   Centre,   the
dominant party in  tbe  Reichstag, has
an article agreeing with the   foregoing
statement and containing the following
mysterious      passage: Perhaps    it
was dun to negotiations on tlm part of
Germnuy in order to obtain if possible, a coaling station iu the Philip
pines, that a number of four vessels
weno to Manila. If this presumption
be correct those who sent instructions
to Admiral Von Diedrieh without
the knowledge of the foreign office
received a bitter lesson. The foreign
office has since been engaged in remedying the blunder and has succeeded
with the American Government,
bnt not yet with the people of tbe
United States, as tbe Ooghlan incident
again demonstrates."
The force of tbis editorial style is
heightened by the fact that, tbe paper
in which it was published, from the
outbreak of the war with Spain was
one of the most virulent enemies of
the United States.

I BRITISH   VIEW
JAPTAIN COGHLAN'S INDISCRETION
MINIMIZED.
Bia Statement was Substantially Correct
���German Insiuuitions ���Chamberlain's Statement-
London, April 20.���The Ooghlan
inoident has caused a great deal of
stir on this side of the Atlantic and
has furnished the press of England and
the continent with a fruitful topic of
discussion throughout the work. Tha
English papers bave taken a lenient
view of Captain Ooghlan's indiscretion
ind except in tbe case of ono or two
mti-Amorieaii journals bave been dis-
posed to find excuses for him.
The Spectator in" an article
wbioh is typical of English comment
says: "Though we must join in the
censure of Captain Ooghlan, for his
indiscretion, we must not forger that
what he said was substantially in ao-
.-ordance with the facts. The Germans
behaved at Manila in a most irritating and unfriendly way fo tho United
States. It was absurd for them to expect tn play the part they played without raising a feeling of the most intense bitterness in such a high spirited body of men as the ollicers and
sailors of the Amen cun navy, an explosion of this feeimg was bound to
come sooner or latter. "
Tbo Speaker rejects "The brutal and
insulting suggestions of tho German
oapers that Captain Coghlan was intoxicated.'' The Speaker assumes tbat
Oaptain Ooghlan thought ho was talking in confidence to personal friends
and members of the Union League Club
and let himself go. "His heaviest
punishment," thu Speaker adds,
"wil not be any lhat the secretary
of tbe navy oan inflict, out   tbe_"Joon-
sciousness that be has done an injury
to his own country. "
Referring to a speech made, by tlie
secretary of slate for the colonies, Mr.
Joseph 'Chamberlain, early in the
week, explaining that tbe massing of
a large British force in South Africa
was due to tbe fact that the Boers bad
erected forts in Pretoria and Johannesburg, will b was regarded as a
menace to Great Britain, the Speaker
declares that the speech "Was quite as
mischievous and unjustifiable as Captain Coghlun's and that it has given
greater offense to tbe Boers than Captain Ooghlan gave tbe Germans, and
Mr. Chamberlain's indiscretion was
just as useless as Coghlan's.
In conned ion with the foregoing remarks of Mr. Chamberlain's another occasion that has caused frictiou between Great Britain and Transvaal
is given in tbe anuonnoemeut liy Mr.
Chamberlain yesterday that Great
Britain had informed President Kru-
ger that tbe dynamite regulations   hy
the Transvaal are a breach of the London convention.
The Daily Mail commenting upon
this   statement,    says:     " Kroger'��
sands ure fast running out and the hour
is approaching when England must
take action. '���

THE TWO   FRANCHISES.
There will be a special meetiug of the
City   Council   tomorrow,   to   considei
the two   applications   that have  been
made   to it   within the past few days,
one for a   tramway   franchise aud the
other for a gas franchise.    If the members were tc be   influenced solely   and
only by tbe   state   of   public   feeling,
they would   shut   their   eyes and vote
the tramway franchise without a Word
and iu any shape   the   company   chose
to give it.    Everybody   recognises   the
value of a tramway   system iu Nelson.
There is   perhaps   no   place ou   earth
that offers better inducements or great-
ei enouragement to   an  enterprise  of
that   kind.    Nelson   never   cau   be   a
carriage town, for we shall never bave
roads to make it worth while,    tt will
not be a bicycle   town, excepting iu   a
limited sense, for the same reason.    It
fs so situated   that   tramways can   be
built and operated without   too   great
expense; and there is room for a population of  fifty thousand any way. aud
for several thousand more if the  necessity is put upon it.    And in addition to
all these, it is so hilly tbat people will
not walk if   tbey   can   ride.    It   is  a
mining tonn, and   mining   towns are
proverbially   liberal   in   personal   expenditure ;   a   car   fare will never  be
too much for the poorest,when a  steep
climb of a block or two is to be avoided.
In comparison with the average
town iu the East, Nelsou is good for
a patronage at least three times as
great as that of any simliar population. With its five thousand today, it
will afford as much patronage as any
town in the East having fifteen thousand. With fifty thousaud of a population, it will be equal in tramway
patronage to any town of one hundred
and fifty thousand. This is a fact that
it would be will he hoar iu mind,
and a fact tbat would under ordinary
circumstances be taken into very serious consideration iu negotiating for a
franchise if the people were not so
crazy to get a tramway that they
throw prudence to tho winds. But
the wildest excitement cools down in
time. If uot next year, certainly the
year after we shall look back and inquire of ourselves if it were not possible to make better terms thau were obtained. As the town grows to twelve or
fifteen thousand of a population, we
ahull marvel greatly at our simplicity
should we now give everything that
is a^ked. The Miner would not huve
the Council drive too hard a bargain.
A tramway will be a great convenience ; it will enhance the value of property, and it will be a splendid advertisement for Nelsou. But all these
benefits will also inure to the company
building it. Even so, however, the
eompauy are entitled to liberal treatment, bscause for a time at least, perhaps two or three years, tbeir dividends will not be ' excessive. What
the members of the Council have to do
is to look beyond the two or three
years, on to tbe expiration of
the long parinrl of thirty-five, and determine according to their best judgment what will be a fair bargain between company and citizeus.
The gaH franchise is a simpler matter; in fact, it is absolutely without
difficulties. Tho application is merely
for permission to put iu mains. The
company ask for no bonus, no exemption, no exclusive privilege, uo nothing that involves the least sacrifice or
obligation on our purt. The plea that
a gas plant would enter into competition with the electric light plant recently foisted upon the municipality
will uot bold water; rather, it will not
bear the light, gas or electric. If it
shall compete, it will be because the
citizeus prefer tho gas and reap the advantage, and as they aro themselves
the owners of tbe electric plant whose
affair is it but their own? This
other, however, is expected to be less
for lighting than for cooking and
beating, and in view of the price
of fuel in Nelson the Oity cannot
afford to turn its back to an offer of
this kind. There is also the basic industry of making coke, the company's
chief relianoe, It would be as reasonable to oppose tho establishment of the
proposed foundry as to refuse tho application of the gas company.

Mr. Templeiuan, who   is   one of tlie
Senators for this   Province,   says   the
population   of   British   Columbia   has
largely increased, therefore   there   cau
be no exodus.    It  is   very   likely   the
gentleman   knows   better,   but he is a
machine politician, without a mind of
his own or   the   courage   to speak   it,
ind as bis party just now are   eudenv-
oring to escape the reproach they were
ready enough to heap upon their opponents he chimes in with the delara-
tion that   there   is   no   exodus.    As a
matter of fact there has been no interruption to tbe exodus; it has goue
on quite as serenely under tbe present
Government ns it did under former
oues. It was not stopped by the Liberals, as claimed. A period of good
times has checked it sensibly, and increased immigration, due largely to
the policy adopted by Mr. Daly wheu
Minister of that Department, has add-
ed to  the   population ; but   Canadians j Pj       T)        T      HTTP TSTTF

I A correspondent of The Kamloops
Standard severely censures tbe citizens
of that place for thoir ill maimers at
public entertainments. It was on the
occasion of tbe visit of tho Metropolitan Onera. Compauy. and he says it
appears to him out of keeping that,
" when the full strength of an Americau company comes forward at the end
of a performance to sing our National
anthem, a British audience should,
in place of standing up to show their
appreciation and respect, begin at
once to put ou coats aud wraps and be
half way down the ball before the
time-honored anthem is finished."
The same extraordinary spectacle
oan be witnessed at Nelson. What a
contempt for our professions of loyalty
these Americans must feel! And
then there is the discourtesy to   them.

NOTICE
The despatch, whieh will be found
elsewhere, announcing the fact that
Great Britain aud Russia have come
to an agreement regarding China, is of
an importance which can hardly be
exaggerated. Not only are the chances
of complications in the Far East thereby greatly minimised, but the despatch
al-**o points to a possibility of intimate
financial relatious between the two
countries, which are far more powerful for peace than staudiug armies or
Invinoible fleets.

seems n pity that the legislature onn-

If the present Government nre not

some energetic citizens will bring
this matter to their notice

OLIVETTE-BOHEMIAN       GIRL.
Two   Successful   Productions   By   the
Metropolitan Opera Company.
The Metropolitan Opera Company
was greeted by two good houses yesterday when "Olivette" was presented
at the Mntiuee,and "Bohemian Girl"
in the evening. It was the company's
first production of Aw (Iran's tuneful
comic opera and it was a decided
success.
Mr. Smith made Coquelicot, tin-
weak minded foster brothel of the
scheming Duke, the chief character.
He was genuinely funny and his work
was free from that tendency for hor-*e
play that has marred some of his acting here. It would be hard to find a
better Coquelicot. Miss Millard appeared in the title role. She made a
charming Olivette and her singing
was splendid. Miss Lincoln's rich
voice showed np well in her part ns
the Countess. Mr. Hageman, as the
irresistible caprain was extremely
funny. Mr. Rising took his part much
better than on the night previous and
was in better voice. The chorus was
a strong feature.
Balfe's beautiful "Bohemian Girl"
was sung very well, the chorus being
especially good. Mr. Rising agaiu
showed improvement, but his mannerisms greatly marred his work. His
"Then You'll Remember me.'" was
well received, but was not sung as such
a beautiful song should be. Mr. Rising oan*."|thiink himself for having
spoiled the voice that once bid fair lo
make him famous. Mr. Rhorer made
a splendid   count.    His   singing   w.is
greatly enjoyed, especially bis "Heart
Bowed Down." Mr. Hove, a new man,
made a capital Flcrestine. He is pos*
sessed of a pleasing voico and acts
well. Mr. Hageman was very good
in the part of   "Devil's   hoof.''    Mies
Aldrach was admirable us Arllne, both
her acting nnd singing being excellent. She made u mnoh more favor
able impiession this time than on the
occasion of the former engagement of
the oompany here. Miss Lincoln was
a modei (lypsey Queen looking, acting
and singing tlm part to perfection,
With Mr. Hageman she received the
only recall for their singing ot the
Btiring duet ill the last act. The caste
was the best of the engagement and
tbe oompany showed last week tbat
tbey now understand what pleases n
Nelson audience. It is to he hoped
thnt they will see tbeir way clear to
pay Nelson another visit when they
may be assured of a warm welcome ns
long as they do not attempt to improve on tbe work of tbe authors and
composers. The next engagement at
the Opera House is the Lyceum Dramatic Company whioh opens a week's
engagement on the nth of May. The
company appears to bo a capital oue.
