Manila, April 4.-4:45 p. m.��� General MoArthur reoonnoitered in force
this morning with the Montana regi-
meut, the Fourth Cavalry and two
guns of light artillery as far as the
river north of Maialos. The reconnaissance developed the fact that there
are fully 1,000 rehels armed with
Mauser rifles, preparing for defense.
Shots were exchanged and two of the
Montana regiment were wounded,but
there was no engagement. Later iu the
day General MoArthur moved north*
ward as the water supply of Maialos is
iuadeqaate.
The belief is spreading nmong the
residents hare that the effect of the
capture of Maialos, tho former rebel
capital, followed by the proclamation
of the United Statos Philippine Commission would convince the natives
that Aguiualdo's bubble has buist.
Dr. Schurman, President of the Commission, said :
"The Filipinos have been unceasingly asking 'What do you propose to
do for us.*" Tho proclamation answers
the question aud it should satisfy
them."
Colouel   Chas.   Denby,   member  of
the commission   and former   Minister
to China remarked :   "It is   the   most
important proclamation since  the   declaration of independence. "   With the
Spanish,   TagalmaU   and English versions have been printed, and it is proposed  to ciroulato them about Maialos
and at all the seaports.    Thoy will   be
seut to the lake  towns   by gunboats."
The Committee of Spaniards   under
the   leadership    of    Senor    Antonio
Fusel, President   of the Spanish   club,
has had little success with the expedition organized   to  deliver   mouey and
stores to the  Spanish   prisoners.    The
members of the   expedition   were  ob
liged to give the goods to the Filipino
officers at   Batangas.    The boat had   a
letter from   Aguinaldo   directing   the
Filipino official! to aid tbo mission but
General Triau, commanding   the Fil-
inipo forces in the southern   provinces
aud his   subordinates, declined to recognize    Agninaldo's  authority.    The
Spanish refused to accept   the   invitation  to land, haviug beeu warned that
they would b. held for ransoms.
Major Rafael Morales, the former
Spanish governor of the island of
Mindoro was brought onboard the ship
for an interview. He was so weak
that he fainted, aud at parting said "I
shall never see you again." The Filipinos thought the Red Cross flag was
the Americau battle flag. A commit
tee, whose members are of all national-
ties in Manila headed by John McLeod, an Englishman, has beon organized to interview the Filipinos' leaders, and petition for the release of the
prisoners in the name of humanity.
THEY WILL NOT REBEL.
Port Antonia, Jamaica, April 4.���So
far as this part of the island is concerned, though tlifo-o is displeasure
among tho public at the action of the
Governor ou the tariff and the appointment of new members of the council, there is no idea of a rebellion
against the government.

Dublin, April 4. ���A conference of
the Nationalist members of Parliament, with the view of bringing about
a reunion of the Irish parties, was
opened at the Mansion House here
today. The Parnellites were invited
to attend, but declined to do so owing
to the faot that the Nationalists had rejected their proposal for a joint parliamentary committee meeting to discuss
the basis of the uuiou. The bulk of
the Redmoiidites were, therefore, absent ; but Mr. Timothy Harrington
was present and was elected to tho
chair. Mr. Timothy M. Healey, Mr.
Timothy D. Sullivan aud Mr. Thomas
J. Hoaley sat with the anti-Paruell-
ites.
Mr. John Dillon moved and Mr.
Michael Davitt seconded a resolution
regrettiug the absence of the bulk of
the Parnellites, which it was pointed
out, would make reunion impossible,
and favoring the rpconstitntion of the
old Parnellito party as it existed from
1885 to 1800, and declaring their readiness, as an earnest of their exemplification of the spirit of the aiiti-Parnell-
ites to support a Parnellito for tho first
chairman of tho party. The resolutions were adopted, though thero was R
slight dissent to the last proposal.
AMERICANS ARE EASIER.
Berlin, April 4. ���Dr. Von Ham-
man, uuder secretary of tho German
Foreign Office was asked today for a
Statement regardiug Admiral Kautz's
charge made against Herr Rose, the
Gorman consul   at   Apia.       he   said:
"That is Admiral Kautz's views,
the other view is that the. whole trouble came by others in tlie royal election. We have no official nows about
Herr Rose, having issued a proclamation, so we cannot tell what its contents are. Impartial as we have been
in Dr. Rafael's case, 1 oan say that if
Heir Rose issued a provocative pro-
olatKation we shall disavow it. That
Herr Roso protested at the consuls'
meeting we know, but that is a different thing from a proclamation. "
Whon he was questioned as to the
Status of th*-* negotiations ou the subject of Samoa, Dr. Von Hamnien replied : "Dr. Von Buelow, the Minister of Foniigu affairs, has taken his
leave and returned to Berlin, because
he desires to carry on th" negotiations
himself. He had a long cout'eiouoe
yesterday with the British ambassador
and today he conferred with the
United States ambassador. It is true
that England is thus far holding back
against Germany's proposal to soud a
joint* commission to Samoa."

New York, April 4.���The Times'
London fiuanoial corrospoudent cables :
We have passed a strait nnd in a
monetary sense are on a broad river
again. But it is a river betraying
symptoms of a coming drought. Dropping the simile, our money market
has this week had to borrow upward
of .��7,000,000 from the Bank of England to help it through the stock exchange exoitement aud end the quarter
demands for cash and credit. Added
to previous borrowings, this puts the
market ovor ��10,000,000 in debt to
the bauk. One year ago the debt of the
market to the bank was loss than half
this sum.
Perhaps the faot that Easter and tho
���nd of the quartor came together, in-
creasing the demand for assistance and
Bomo oi lhe holiday cash wil) doubtless
comeback. This, however, issoarcclv
worth weighing against tho inareased
poverty of thu market���a poverty
which gives it a permanent trend toward dearness. You may take it as
certain that the market will not. be
able to repay the bank all this money
during tho present quarter. For a
few days at a time it may gut free,
but each recurring stock exchange settlement will see the market forced tu
loan on tho bauk and as the mouths
pass ils dependence will increase.
Unless gold Hows in from abroad, as
there is no sign of its doing, we must
expect tho money market to be subject
to spasms and tightness all tbo summer. Uo not, then, allow tho present
lowuess of discount rates to mislead
you. If tho bank can not afford to allow its rate to fall below threo per
cent, uud it assuredly can not in the
present circumstances, thu open market is playing for a bad fall by driving
I it's rate down to two per cent, or little
moro. Short credits may be plentiful i
for tho next few days, but tho supply
will soon run short aud 1 will not be
surprised to see money as tight as ever
on the noxt stock pay day.
In some respects the demand for
money ou the stook exchange this week
was less thau was looked for. Less
new money, , that iB, was required.
Still the account was extremely heavy
aud afforded striking evidence of the
resources among largo capitalists.

tho particulars of the case aro reported to be as follows :
Egan has been keeping Hamilton for
some months during which time the

Monday night Kgan was commissioned
to go into the mountains to do some
work on a mining property and his
employer advanced him   ifio,   placing
it on a table before Egan and beside
whieh Hamilton stood. It is alleged
that the latter playfully pocketed
the bill und then disappeared shortly
after. As he did not turn up yesterday morning Egan grew apprehensive
and swore out an information charging Hamilton wilh the theft. A diligent search for the missing youth was
instituted   and   every   clue     followed

Obtained their "Information" from

assert the existence of "Mysterious

General Wesley Merritt, President
McKinley, Major General Elwoll S.
Otis and Archbishop Ireland leading
to tho hitter's journey to Rome."
Continuing tho statement says:
"The Panlist fathers actions prior to
tho fall of Manila were suspicious.
Now, in conjunction with Archbishop
Nozalodas, who is intimate with General Otis, they are endeavoring to procure the former ascendency of the
church in the Philippines. The Paul-
ist policy is more subtle than that of
the Jesuits and unless they are
promptly recalled they will work further mischief. Tho Philippines aro
a valuable hunting ground for tho

Senator Malay, however, representing an agricultural district, defended
the bill. He said tho Stato had i v-
pended a great deal of money in tlie
examination of tubercuioHis in cattle,
and had a right lo require that cattle
h*>ro ihould lio protected against infection from cattle brought into the state
fiom other localities. All the New

El Paso, Tex., Apiil 4. ���A six-
shooter fight took plaoe in the 'tenderloin" district of this city between an
Amerioan   and   a  Mexican, resulting
in the death uf Jesus Mampcla, the
Mexican. Walter Dunham, the man

Tho mini killed   claimed tu   be   the

he had killed the nephew and was anxious     tu   moot   thu   uncle.     Dunham
heard of the boast and kept his eye nu

He Answers the Silly Charges Brought
Against Him.
Considerable    oorament    has   beeu
caused in the City by the attack   upon
Aid. Fletcher   uu   the ground that  be
has been endeavoring  tu  bring  abont
the disqualification   of   Aid.    Hillyer.
It was alleged that he gave lnstrnctinns
twice, while acting Mayor.to bave Aid.
Hillyer informed that he was disqualified, first   on   tho ground that he   had
entered into a contract   with tho City
|aud the second time on   the score that
he had sold his interest in tho Hillyer
block and   could not   qualify.    No one
believed  the  story but the   following
letter to the Editor  of   the  Tribune,
which   has   also been handed   to   Tho
Miner    for   publication,   gives    Aid.
Fletcher's full denial:
Sir.���With roforenoe to the article in
ibis morning's Tribune re Alderman
Hillyer, I assume you do not wish to
circulate statements totally false,
knowingly; therefore, I will stato for
your information, that I never gave
any instructions fo notify Aid. Hi liver that he was disqnalfled, nor have
1 discussed tne matter so far as to
express an opinion that he was disqualified.
Your paper was the first to circulate
the report that Hillyer would resign. I
simply know from both parties, that
he had sold his property.
Regarding the supposed contract,
lhe facis of the caso aro as follows:
Mr. MoGhiO personally saw the Mayor
and myself with reference to a tender
for rock on Ward street. On Saturday
his letter came before the Council,
igned Charles Hillyer & Co. and tho
offer was not accepted. But a resolution was moved by Alderman Thomson, seconded by Kirkpatrick, specifying tin* terms upon which Ihe City
would dispose of tho rock iu question,
and it was left to the Mayor to see
Mr. MoQhie and  arrange   tne matter,
whioh I believe was nut carried out
In for*: be let';, sn much for the contract.
You may not believe it, but 1 consider Hillyer makes a good Alderman
notwithstanding lhe company he has
been ill, and I have no wish to see
him resign, nor do I covet the Polico
Oommissionerghrp, which I never asked for, as insinuated.
Had there been any desiro for fail-
dealing, a little investigation would
have dicBOVered sufficient tn shnw that
the article in question was Without
foundation.    Yours,
FRANK FLKTOHER.

ties that will become so burdensome
as to cause men's minds to turn to
repudiation.
LET OUR   LIGHT SHINE.
The Colonial Goldfields Gazette commends the practice that is being
adopted by the loading British Columbia mining companies, of regularly
publishing cablegrams concerning recent developments in their properties.
"We havo frequently urged tbe importance of tbis step, "it says, '-regarding it. as we bave always done, as one
of the best means of awi keniug public
interest in British Columbia uiiumg
enterprises. * * * It is impossible to deny that in the
case of Western Australia the weekly
batch of cablegrams received from that
colony serves as a splendid advertisement for tbe mining industry, and
there can bo no doubt that British Columbia would also derive substantial
benefit from a more liberal use of tbe
cable in regard to mining operations."
We are looking to England for the
capital with which to develop our
mines, and as long as we do this we
shall, if wise, study English wishes
and conform to English expectations
and demands. It is uot easy to gain
tho confidence of British capitalists,
bnt once obtained their money will
flow freely in our direction. British
Columbia is but a youthful competitor
in tbe field. England's experience in
mining bas for long years been confined to Australia. Then camo South
Africa. Millions of capital weut to
those places, while British Columbia
was not oven noticed. They went, because care was taken to let tho world
know exactly what thoir mines were
doing. So far from practising concealment, the mine owners courted and encouraged publicity. Capitalists knew
where tbey stood, what thoy were doing. As soon as we adopt a similar
course, they will know how ..to deal
with us; aud until we do, we shall
find it necessary to cultivate a very
large measure of patience in our efforts
to woo British capital. Hiding
our light under a bushel is poor policy.
In an article condemning   in   severe
terms tbe action of our  Legislature iu
repudiating tho contracts with Mossrs.
Mackenzie & Mann, tbo Railway   and
Shipping World, of Toronto, an   unbiassed and impartial critic, says: "Unfortunately   for British   Columbia, its
Government at present is dominated by
the Attorney-General, a  oarpet-baggor
from Manitoba, who left  behind him
there a record for just the sort of legislation be has recently   forced   through
the  Victoria     House.    On   becoming
Attorney-General   of  Manitoba  about
ten years ago, une uf his first aots was
to secure the passage of a Bill  cancelling two contracts   with   the   Government,    which were   held  by   political
opponents;   among   the clauses  of the
Bill being ono   which   took away   the
rights of tbe coutractors to   appeal   to
the  courts   for compensation!    This
is mentioned merely to show that be is
capable   of   securing   any   legislation
which may suit his purpose, no  matter how arbitrary or outrageous it may
be and that no  contractor  or investor
ia safe in British Columbia so loug   as
he is a member of  its   Government."

AN EXAMPLE TO   BE SHUNNED.
Holders of Brandon municipal de*
Dentures met in London a few days
ago, to take stops to protect their interests in view of default in the payment of interest in January last. A
report of tho meeting is published in
Tbe Loudon Times. The chairman
explained that the excuse made iu behalf of the repudiating Manitoba town
was that the aggregate rate for current
expenses was so high that a large and
increasing number of ratepayers refused to pay, aud preferred to abandon
thoir property to the corporation. Ho
felt bound tn add that a perusal of the
Brandon and Winnipeg papers afforded no sign of any serious exodus out
of the city. The Chairman is to be
congratulated nn his incredulity. There
is no such exodus, and has not been.
Ratepayers are not abandoning their
property, and there aro no more additions to the tax sale list iu thut town
than iii other Manitoba towns, in proportion to population. The faot is
that Brandon is one of the most prosperous places in tho Province. The
tux rate is high, no doubt, but the
ratspayors cau pay everything assessed
against them. It is high, because
Brandon has been over-ambitious and
extravagant, and is now reaping the
harvest of the seed sown iu boom days.
It borrowed largely and at high rates,
aud to attempt now to escape its
liability, for no better reason thau that
it could borrow at a much less rate today, is a display of dishonesty that is
happily rare among municipalities
in Canada.
Thero are no boom towns iu British
Columbia, in tho sense or to tho degree that Brandon was. But there
are several that aro growing at a moro
rapid rate thau it evor did, and that
���will bo largo centres of population
when Brandon will still he a respectable country town. They are under
strong temptation to ho extravugaut.no
doubt, but it is well for towns to remember that with them, as with individuals, the day of reckoning will
oertainly   oomo.    Better   for   tbem to
proceed slowly than to assume liabili-
Possibly there may be an eleotion in
June. That is tbe word from Winnipeg, whioh has boen vacant several
weeks owing to the tragic death of its
late representative. Brockville did not
become vacant until some time afterwards. Yet the writ is issued and the
day set. But the Ministerial party was
ready in Brockville, nnd profess to
have hopes of carrying it. In Winnipeg they are not ready. The party
there are divided, therefore it is inconvenient to bring on tbe election
now. Thus goes up in smoke and
stench another cberisned principle of
tho old Liberals. We wonder if Sir
Richard Cartwright and Mr. Mills get
their sleep o'nights.

Victoria and Vancouver are auxions
for an Americau road into the Bouudary country, for the reason that they
expect it would enable them to do the
trade from some point on tbe Ooast.
Perhaps it would, but their gain
would hi Nelson's loss. We suspect
1 Kettle River Railway would be of
little benefit to Canadian trade anywhere, but it would certninly not help
that of Nelson.
The British Columbia Weekly deplores the report that tbe Canadian Pacific Company was endeavoring to injure the Hall Mines' smelter. It seems
to have reached even Loudon, it says,
where it "did mischief by depreciating the value of Hall Minos stock.
Thus do newspapers fictions cause at
times much mischief." It expresses
its gratification that the report has
been stamped as false by those best
qualified to know.
Major Walsh's friends, and he has
many of them, will hope that be is
supplied with stronger evidence than
nis sltnplo denial to disprove tbe very
serious charges preferred against him
in the House the other night by Sir
Hibbert Tupper.

THE CROW'S NEST.
Of this road the last annual report
of the Department of Railways and
Canals says : "The work of construction has so far been confined to the section between Lethbridgo and Kuskonook Station, 290 miles, ovor which
the track laying was completed on,the
8th October ultimo, and at this date
of writing the line over this section is
in safe condition for public traffic A
train transfer landing has beon constructed ou Kootenay Lake at Kuskonook, so that cars with thiir loads
can be transferred without transhipment from tbat point to Nelson, which
will greatly assist mining operations
through the Kootenay district."
Iu aid of the road the Government
granted a subsidy of $11.,000 per
tulle, and up to November 1, the
amount paid on account was $2,1(12,-
190, The total is not to exceed (8,080,
000, which loaves nearly a million
and a half for the 54 miles still to be
built in to Nelson. Tne Company
have until 81st December, 11)00, to
complete the road. It is believed thai
construction on the extension is de
layed beoauso of difficulty in locating
a satisfactory liue.
teams. The rocks will be removed
winch will be a great boon to the
builders and the fair sized community already settled in lhe district. After Silica streot is attended to, the men
will work smith on the cross streets
and make them all passable. That part
of the City is beiug rapidly built
up and as it is in great need "of improved streets tho Oity has decided to
attend to it first.
It is probable that over ten thousand
dollars will bo spent on the streets ot
Iselson this season. This will mean
quite a number of sidewalks, plenty of
crossings and not a little grading of
streets that aro rapidly becoming important ou ..account of tho building
boom. Street improving in Nelsou is
an expensive proposition and it is
quite apparent" that the only wise
way of doing it, is bit by bit as the
City grows. It has been ouly during
the past few days that the frost is out
of the ground sufficiently to make it
practicable to commence work. Tbat
the frost lias been an obstacle has been
amply demonstrated by the fact that
powder had to be used tbis week to
loosen the earth for the excavation now
being proceeded with ou the site of
the now Hank of Montreal building.
But now that tho balmy breezes of
spring aro blowing no doubt the City
will lose no more time in pushing on
With the necessary work.
Tho tile drain has been completed in
tho Ward Street ravine which will
now bo tilled in with grade material
from Victoria streot. The filling in
will extend far enough to allow of a !i0
foot roadway from Baker street to
Victoria streot being opened this summer. It is probable that Josephine
street will be well graded a long way
up tho bill. This will supply a main
artery for thu well populated blocks
both east aud wost, of it, the sido
streets to be sufficiently improved to
allow easy access lo the houses on
either side. Stanley street is now iu
reasonably good condition to bo the
main artery for the moro western part
of tbe City.  ,

THE CITY'S WATER SUPPLY.
How the Aldormen Will Ovorcome the
Difficulty.
One of the questions that the Aldermen of the City are now devoting
thoir attontion to is the water supply
���one of the most important mattoiH
that any municipality has tc deal
with. Oity Engineer McCulloch will
shortly investigate nnd report upon the
cost of laying a steel pipe line to tap
Cottonwood Crook above Giveout
Creek at a sufficient elevation to supply the reservoir. Such a work would
(jive the Oity au unfailing supply of
water and as tho line will be buried
all danger of fnrthor trouble from frost
will disappear. That the presont
supply would be utterly inadequate
ut the present rate of inorease in population, te give wator to the City all
the year round has beon amply demonstrated, If it is not improved tho
City would be in a sorry plight next
winter. In looking about for the
niost feasible, aud at the sumo time
the cheapest method of reliof tho Aldermen have deoided upon the scheme
outlined above. It is probable that
about f20,000 will be required to do
the work and for power to borrow tins
amount tbe Council will submit a bylaw to the rate payers. This will be
done as soon as the Oity Engineer
presents his report to the Council.
Tkore is no likelihood ol any opposition boing offered to the passage of
tho by-law.

WHAT THE MISTER
Of wrong mm
Slocan  Mine Owners  Feel
Reassured.
IT RESTS WITH THE MEN
,; ivemment will Not Initiate Prose-
Slooan Miners Content
-Some M'uing Items*
The outlook in regard to  the 1 ��� ��� 111
eight-hour legislation now seems to be
��������� hopeful, especially as regards tbe
mines of the Slocan, atj iny rate this
is ih* opinion of Mr. Brnce White.
wno should be in a position to judge.
Mr. White hns just returned trona Victoria,and like several other Slocan mine
owners, he interviewed the Hon. .1.
Fred Hume, Minister of Mines, on
1 In* Bubject.
Mr. Hume did not appear personally
1*) favor the new legislation, which
was slipped through during his absence; and his assurances on tbe subject renssured Mr.    White very much.
position of the Government as
outlined by Mr. Hume is as follows:
The Government will not institute
any prosecutions under the new aot, or
in any way seek to disturb the existing relations between employers and
employed, The law, however, is on
the statute book and onnnot be ignored
��� onsequently if the Government is requisitioned by the majority of the
minors e mployed in 'a mine, the law
will be enforoed. Tims the position
is largely in the hands ol the men
themselves, though   eaoh case   will be
I into on its merits, thus prevent-
;i turbulent few   causing trouble,
This is the substance of   the   Minister
.liiii s' Assurances   as   received   by
Mr. Bruce White, who   does   not now
anticipate trouble in the future.
While pnssing through on bis way
nack from tbe (.oast, Mr. Brnce White
enquiries, and. so far as he
could learn, the Slocan miners do not
intend making any trouble. They an-
pear to be quite satisfied with the existing state of affairs, and have not as
yel made any demand through then
Uuton. In fnol everything points, in
tin* Slooan at least, to tbe in';i'-i lul continuance of the syBtem l*y which til*
miner receives $3 50 for 10hours work.
��� ���*: if there was much excitement
at tin- Ooasl over tin* Atlin placer
country, Mr. White replied that there
waa not tn present, though the re*
- from '.lu* claims continue to be
encouraging.    Stories   of   rich  quartz
in that country were rife, ami
Mr.  Whit" was   informed  by   a   man
 hould know what he was talking
it, that a six foot ledge of free
milling quartz has been disc vered
which runs over 11,000  iu gold to tie*
The story seems   incredible.'   but
iVhite's informant vouched for it.

himself.

Tho water from the surface has been
coming in so fast that it was found
to be impossible to keep the Commander workings clear with the present
pumping plant. The proporty has
therefore been shut down pending the
installation of a larger electrical plant.
Duke Harris, the superintendent,states
that he thought the new plant would
be installed in about 80 days. The
tho plant had not yet been ordered
and it was his impression that it would
take the management a few days to
look over plans and decide just the sort
of a plant needed. That it will be
larger than the one now in use is certain.
* *   *
Under the recent legislation, all
chattel mortgages and transfers of personal property situato in the Trail
Division must be filed in the Court
House at Rossland, instead of in this
City as heretofore.

"I am not at liberty tosny Anything
moro about it" said a trustworthy
mining man yestedray, "but you may
state that within tho next UO nays
active work will be commenced by a
Oanadian Oompany on a Toad Mountain property aud the development
will do a great deal of good to Nelson.
The property is already well developed but will be worked with a will
hereafter," and that is as far as he
will take The Miner man into his confidence.
