Judgment Is Handed Down In
Celebrated Delplt Marriage Case.
(SPF.CIAI.S TO THE MINER.)
Winnipeg, March 30.���Sensational
, evidence was given in the Todd murder trial today. Charles Linklater,
a new witness, stated that Todd had
frequently talked with him about the
murder, and speculated on Todd's
chances of escape from the gallows.
Sergt.-Major Wilby and H. W. Melton, of the British Columbia contingent of Strathcona's Horse, arrived
here this morning,
A St. Paul despatch says Geo. Garner, a visitor from Winnipeg, met
Florence Emerson in St. Paul last evening and accompanied her to a room
in the Ely hotel. This morning Garner woke up to find his companion
missing together with $80. Tbe woman waa arrested on tbe charge of
grand larceny.

"The premier's condition suddenly

Richard Douglas Powell, Dr. Walker
and other physicians were hastily
summoned. In order to avert a crisis,
a .pesial prescription was made up,
the application of which checked the
approaching complications, but the
premier's condition for the last day
or two, has disappointed all the medical men. One of the earliest callers
on Saturday waa a special messenger
from the king. Tbe family last evening expressed a hope that Lord Salisbury might make the journey to the
Rivera but the physicians are loth to
express an opinion except in so far
as forbidding any definite arrangements to be made for the present."

Montreal, March 30.���In the supreme court this morning, Judge
Archibald gave judgment in the celebrated Delplt case in favor of Mrs.
Delplt. The judge decides that Mrs.
Delpit is legally the wife of Delpit
a. and that the marriage contract performed by Rev. Mr. Barnes Is valid in
tbe eyes of civil laws of the province,
Slroin of legal phraseology, the
judgment means that tho decision of
the court plaoes the civil law in marriage above the ecclesiastical law,
and Delplt will have to ask a higher
court to give effect to the ecclesiastical judgment rendered in the case,
which meant divorce. Tbe judge
stated that the state had no right to
interfere with internal affairs of a
church of any character, but parties
in a church had a perfect i ight to go
to any legalized authority to get married if they wanted to.

' London, March 31.���The Weekly
Despatch repeats the story published
in the Dally Express of Saturday that
Lord Salisbury is suffering from a
kidney affection which is likely to incapacitate him for some time and says
it learns that tbe premier's Illness
bas taken so unfavorable a turn that

Rossland, B. O., March 30.���It leak
ed out today that the Le Roi, War
Eagle and Centre Star have under contemplation the bringing in of water
from near Sheep lake aud the erection of one or two very large concentrators. A line to bring in the water
will cost $150,000 and the concentrators will cost considerably more, as
they will be of large capacity. When
the plants are in operation it is
claimed that S4 ore can be made to
pay as the ores can be concentarted
from three to ten into one at a cost of
00 cents to the ton. The operation of
this plant would double the output of
the camp. It is claimed it will be
put in operation this summer. In the
Green mountain, the diamond drill at
a depth of 105 feet bas encountered a
20-foot ledge carrying ore of a pay
grade. A shaft is to be sunk to open
up the ledge.
The output for the week reached a
total of 8,478 tons being 132 tons less
than the returns for the previous
week. There is abundance of evidence
accumulating that the 8,000 ton lirn-
it'ias been permanently passed and
that henceforth each succeeding
week's shipments will exceed that
average, if not shortly approximate
the 10,000 ton mark. The Le Roi for
the past seven days sent down 4,060
tons, a slight falling off of 190 tons as
compared with the previous week.
The record of Le Roi No. 2 also falls
short by 202 tons. On the other hand
tire shipments ot the Rossland and
Great Western reached 600 tons, or 250
in excess of the proceeding week.
Tbe War Eagle is also beginning to
show up well, now that its surface facilities have been improved, and this
week is credited with 870 tons, a gain
of 170 tons over the previous report.
There is every likelihood that this
figure will continue to show an increase each succeeding week.

Victoria, B. C, March 30.���It is
rumored that when Finance Minister
Turner delivers his budget speech on
the lesupmtion of the house after the
Easter recess he will announce his retirement from political life to accept
the post of agent-general in London.
It is also stated that he will take up
his dutios there before the end of May
and that he will be assisted in bis
duties for the first few months of incumbency by R. E. Gosnell, tbe premier's private secretary.
R. M. Palmer, who was appointed
to take up the question of freight
rates on agricultural products leaves
for the mainland tonight to undertake
his duties.
Now that most of the members of
Strathcona's Horse from British' Columbia are borne, the proposition is
being revived to have them down to
Victoria for the prorogation of the
house. The government is understood
to be favorable to the proposal.

TERRIBLE FATALITY.
The report reached here yesterday of a terrible fatality at
the Chapleau mine on Lemon
creek. Mrs. George B. Hour,
wife of the accountant at the
mini;, was seized with a fainting
fit while working about a cook
stove. She fell across the stove
and was discovered in this position some time later. In the
meantime the unfortunate woman had'; sustained burns from
which she died before medical
attendance could be secured.
Dr. Forin, formerly of Nelson
was sent for and hastened from
Slooan Ci'y, to the Chapleau
with several other residents of
tbe town. When tbey arrived
Mrs. Hour had ceased to
breathe,having succumbed to her
terrible injuries within a few
hours. The remains JJwere
brought to Slooan City yesterday. Mr. and Mrs. Bour were
in Nelson in October last.

ROLAND REED DEAD.
Popular Actor Succumbs to Attack
of Cancer of the Stomach.
New York, March 30.���Mr. Roland
Reed, the aetor, died at 10 o'clock
this morning at the home of his mother-in-law, Mrs. Rush. At his bedside
thero was his daughter, Mrs. Florenoe
and Mrs. Rush. The actor's death
was caused by cancer of the stomach,
from which he had been suffering
for some time,nnd for the amelioration
of which he bad submitted to several
operations. The actor, for the past
twenty four hours, was in a state of
coma. He was born in Philadelphia
j in 1852. .
To the Editor,���The southeastern
portion of British Columbia depends
for advaacement on the development
of its mineral wealth, therefore, anything which tends to check mining
affects adversely all other business.
Excessive freight rates and smelting
charges are two of the principal lac-
tors now restraining mining development.
An examination of tbe situation
without prejudice must tend to convince anyone of ordinary business
acumen tbat tbe Canadian Paci Bo railway Is largely responsible for the existing eondition commonly known as
"the smelter trouble."
The 0. P. R. is the chief smelter
owner in southeast British Columbia,
and ores ean at present reach Canadian .inciters only over its line. The
building of these railways was large
ly assisted by money and grants of
land, so that the C. P B. has grown
strong and by pressure forced the sale
to it of the Trail smelter.
The next step in the process of milking the country has had some light
thrown upon it by the publication and
admission of tbe statement that 96 per
ton was charged by the C. P. R. for
freight, etc., on ore from Moyie to
Creston, a distance of forty-seven
miles, while but S3 per ton was
charged by the Great Northern from
Creston to (.eat Falls, a distance of
five hundred and thirty-two miles.
May this not give rise to the belief
that the C. P. R. has demanded, and,
until lately, obtained, an unearned
profit on lead ores going to Urlted
States smelters from BritiBh Columbia
���looking on" this country as a preserve upon which no enoroachment
could be permitted except for value received? And is tbis not the reason
why United States smelters are not
buying British Columbia lead ores?
Again, the C. P. R. has actively opposed the bu Iding of spuis from
United States railway lines into BritiBh Columbia. But it is now published that opposition to the construction of a spur from the Great Northern railway to Fernie has been withdrawn in consideration of the relinquishment by the Crow's Nest Coal
company of the condition that tbe coal
lands granted as a subsidy to the
Crow's Nest railway, (C.P.R.) should
not be opened up for a number of
years.
Does not tbis on the face of it point
to a deal whereby the United States
smelting trust, through the Great
Northern railway company, agrees
that in consideration of free access to
the coal and coke at Fernie, British
Columbia shall be left as a "preserve"
for tbe C. P. It., It being In a position to supply its own coke to Its own
smelters to which the ore would be
hauled over its own railways? Would
not this create an ideal condition of
affairs���for the C. P. R. ?
If any inclination to give fair
freight and treatment rates on ores
had been evinced, the people might
well join the C. P. R. in still further
fortifying itself against outside attack.
But on the contrary, immediately
following the cessation of purchase of
British Columbia lead ores by the
United States smelters, the smelting
charges in British Columbia were
raised about two dollars per ton.
That lead smelting is a very profitable business is evidenced by the latest report of the Ball Mines, Ltd.,
which shows tbat its small lead stack
has for several months paid from
profits nearly all tbe working expenses
of the Silver King mine. Tbe rates
charged by the Hall Mines are the
same as those charged by the C. P. R.
at tne Trail smelter, and it is not to
be supposed that ore is hauled to the
Bali Mines smelter free of charge.
Tbe C. P. R.i therefore reaps a double
profit; and when its smelting capacity is enlarged sufficiently, may at its
leisure by a simple juggling with
figures as to the smelting and freight
proportions of  charges, prevent tbe
Hall mines or any   other smelter than
its own doing business.
This exposes the weakness of the
position of the wholo lead mining industry of South east Uritish Columbia.
Under existing conditions, docs It
not appear folly on the part of the
people to propose taxing themeslves in
order to pay a bonus on lead refining
without guarantee of a substantial reduction in freight and treatment
charges?
If this bonus were granted, would
it not go Into the C. P. R. treasury
either as bonus on lead refined or
freight for the long haul of the product to market?
A solution of the treatment of ores
at reasonable cost might be arrived
at by the dxing of a fair mileage rate
for all ores, cokes, fluxos, and bullion. This being done, any person
or company having the necessary capital might with safety establish a
smelter in a locality where ore, coke,
and fluxes could be economically assembled. Since the ores form the
greater part of th. weight smelted,
the smelters would naturally be in
their neighborhood in order to save
freight charges on tbo valueless con
stituents (about 50 per cent, or more)
of the ores which pass off In slag.
This saving would permit the opening
up of low grade properties of no
value under present conditions, employing largo numbers of men contributing effectually to the advancement
of this richly endowed country.
If this fixed mileage rate was guaranteed, the C. P. R. might then refine
at a fair profit the lead bullion from
various smelters and thus secure the
profit of the haul on the product of
the ores, without forcing payment of
heavy freight charges on waste.
Therefore, before asking for a bonus
on refined lend,does it not seem bettsr
policy to assist lead mining by demanding tbat no corporation or combination of corporations shall have the
power of enforcing payment of freight
on thousands of tons of waste matter
as is now done etch year through
uncontrolled freight charging power'.

LAYING    PACIFIC    CABLE
WORK HAS ALREADY BEEN COM
MENCED ON VANCOUVER ISLAND END.
JOHN JESSOP,   AN OLD   PIONEER
OF VICTORIA DROPS DEAD
ON   STREET.
(SPECIAL TO THE! MINER.)
Victoria, B.C., March 30.���The first
steps on behalf of Canada toward laying the Pacific cable are now being
taken on the west coast. On Thursday night the D. G. S. Quadra, with
Captaiu Gaudin, agent of marine and
fisheries, Mr. Beak, Pacific cable engineer, who arrived tbe same day
from England, via Ottawa, where he
conferred with the government, and
A. H. Fleming, photographer, proceeded to Jordan river and commenced a survey of tlie coast from that
point to Barclay Sound for the selection ot a suitable landing place for
tbe cable. Tbe party is expected to
return tomorrow or next clay. The
point where they commenced work Is
on a beach of sand which extends
along the shore for nearly half the
distance to Barclay sound, affording
an ideal spot to land a cable. Mr.
Fleming will take photographs of
different points. On the selection of
a site it Is understood that work on
tbe cable will commence Immediately
and buildings for the coast station be
erected. Work is to be completed before the end of 1002. From Vancouver Island to Norfolk island, the
first landing placo in the east is 3,500
miles, the longest stretch of cable In
the world. A repair ship will be
stationed at the point where the cable
terminus is selected.
John Jessop, immigration officer under the provincial government, and
seventy years of age, diopped dead in
front of Porter's butcher shop at noon.
He was one of the oldest residents,
and a very prominent official in Methodist church circles. Death was the
result of heart disease. He had charge
of the first school opened In Victoria
in 1800.
ALLEOED SWINDLER8 ARRESTED.
Berlin, Maroh   30.���Herr Otto San-
den and Alexander II. Haenschke, di
rectors of the Landed Property and
Mortgage Investments company, huve
been arrested in connection with the
Spclchan bank affair in which thousands of poor persons lost their savings.
J. C. Drewry, general manager of
tbe Canadian Gold Fields, Limited,
announced yesterday that a New
York captalist had gone thoroughly
into the conditions prevailing in East
Kootenay and had undertaken to erect
a smelter of 1,000 tons daily capaoity
at a point east of Kootenay Landing
on the completion of tbe Crow's Nest
Southern road.
Intimations  to   this effect have already leaked out but definite information has not   hitherto been forthcoming.   Tbe capitalist in question is Mr.
Hyams,   who  was largely   interested
in the American Smelting and   Refining trust.   When the trust bought out
the  Guggenheim   interests  in   South
Amerioa, Mr. Hyams  disagreed   with
his  colleagues and pulled out   of  the
trubt, receiving for his interest a sum
stated to be six  millions cash.    He is
looking for an   investment, and satis-
fled himself on a recent   tour through
the East Kootenay  country  that  the
opening for a smelter there was very
promising if the  railroad competition
necssary  to  render it   a  success was
forthcoming.   The Crow's NeBt Southern will fill this want, and   the claim
is made by  the   interests   whioh  are
backing the  granting of   the   .barter
that one of the first good effects to be
felt as the result of the advent of the
competitive road will be the establish*
ment of this large  and   important Industry.    It ia understood   that the location of   the   new smelter is   practically   determined,   but   no announcement has been made to this effect   as
yet.
Mr. Drewry recently returned from
Victoria where he spent a couple of
weeks in connection with the Crow's
Nest Southern charter. Asked as to
tbe probability of the bill passing the
house, he said; "The passage of the
bill as at present before tbo legislature is as nearly assured as anything
can be. There was a disposition on
the part of the government to shelve
thie matter, but we succeeded in plac-
ing its merits so strongly before tho
government that they were compelled
to do something. Mr. Prentice admitted that our arguments wero unanswerable, and the support of a large
majority of tbe members is assured.
In view of this the supporters of the
charter are thoroughly confident of
the outcome."
Mr. Drewry gives a bright report
of tho St. Eugene mine's output. He
states that the mill run for the present month will be the largest in the
history of tbe property. On Friday
morning the tonnage of concentrates
turned out amounted to 2,970. By to
night at midnight, when the month
closes, the tonnage will be 3,200, thus
topping the best previous record of
3,040 tons by a substantial quantity.
The concentrates are still being shipped to Antwerp. The smallpox scare
at the mine did not interfere with
operations. Tbe company was put to
tbe trifling expense of engaging a
couple of watchmen; but as this step
was taken as much in their own defence as for tho protection of .the general public, no complaint is made.
The St. Eugene ores run very high In
lead, and the present low figure at
which that commodity is "saleable has
affected the mine's earning uapaojty
to such an extent that the management
say they are seriously contemplating
a shutdown until prices recover.
The manager of the Canadian Gold
Fields will spend today at Kaslo inspect ii.g the Tiue Blue group, whicli
tbe syndicate iB working under bond.
A rich strike is reported by the superintendent, and it is to ascertain the
exact dimensions of the discovery tbat
ho went north. The report wns that
a fine body of copper ore, running 12
per cent, in copper and carrying some
gold, had been located In the prospect woik started some few weeks
ago. Tho True Blue shipped some
high grade copper ore to the smelter
under a previous management, but
the lead was lost, and It would now
seem as though tbe vein had been
picked up again. Nelson Daily Miner, Sunpay. Mrrch 31, ifflf.

TO THE PEOPLE  OF NELSON.
Because The Miner had the courage
to tell the truth about John Houston,
M. P. P., in his public capacity, the
editor of this paper is subjected to
gross personal abuse from the Tribune, Mr. Houston's organ. With tbe
idea of dealing absolutely fairly with
the public, it was the intention of
The Miner to reproduce the Tribune's
reply to the article which wc Bubii^h-
ed on Friday treating of Mr. .. ohn
Houston, so that both sides of the
case might be presented to our readers.
Inasmuch, however, as the Tribune
devotes all of its editorial space in
Its issue of yesterday to an attack upon the editor of The Miner, it is impossible, owing to shortage of space
this morning, to leproduce its reply.
We may say, however, in order to
do the Tribune full justice, that it
calls the editor of The Miner a liar, a
fool and a paid assassin. When that
is stated, Miner leaders will be able
to appreciate the force of the argument presented by the Tribune in reply to what waB said by this paper in
respect to John Houston, M. P. P.
The editor of the Miner has paid
the penalty which attaches in all instances when a foul-mouthod bully is
attacked and shown up in his true
light in the interests of the public-
be has bad spewed all over him the
epithets and curses which might be
expected to flow from a source poisonous with invective born of a hatred
of decency and fair dealing.
However, that is a small matter.
The personality of the editor of The
Miner is hardly an issue in the controversy. The people of Nelson know
John Houston, M. P. P., editor and
proprietor of the Tribune, very well.
They know him to be a blasphemous
bully and a trickster who has stopped
at nothing to gain his own ends in a
community where his will has been
paramount for some time. They
know him in all his variable phases,
and it is not necessary for The Miner
to attempt to educate them in that respect. What the Miner said about
John Honston in a public capacity is
true. Because it is true, and the
Miner had tbe courage to lay the facts
before the public, the editor is slandered by the Tribune, Mr. Houston's
peisonal organ. That is Mr. Houston's
style; nothing else could be expected ;
nothing else was expected. But is it
not timely in tbis connection to suggest that ii ia hardly fair that to The
Miner should be left unaided the task
of exposing in his true light a man
who is a menace to the welfare of the
community, a man whose conduct has
been so outrageous as to debar him
from entrance to decent society, a
man whose name is synonymous with
treachery and trickery? The Miner
respectfully sulmlts thnt the people
of Nelson are interested in this matter. The position of this paper iu
quite plain. It iB a newspaper. It is
dependent for existence upon public
patronage. It would be folly for it
to take an attitude antago: ' ',, .o
public opinion for t'.- jj_._,..u of g<
ifying personal spite. It has not done
so; it will not do so. It lias simply
done what it believes was its duty to
the public. What is the attitude of the
latter in respect to Its position?
Hoes it support it or does it leave it
alone at the task of grappling with a
common enemy who aims at stifling
all attempts to wrest from his grasp
a power for evil which he has weilded
all too long?
With the utmost, confidence The
Miner awaits a verdict at the hands
ot tbe people, {
PARTYISM  GONE MAD.
Nothing is more displeasing to colonials than to observe day after day
in the cabled reports of the proceedings of the Hritish house of commons
references to pro-lloer utterances
from certain Liberal members who
seem to take a delight in making
mean insinuations against the conduct
of the war in South Africa, with the
object of embarrassing tho government and injuring the military authorities. On Thursday Mr. James
Bryce (Liberal) expressed the hope
tha^t the government would re-open
the peace negotiations with General
Uotha. All who have read the terms
offered by General Kitchener will
a^ree that they were very liberal;and
it is quite apparent that the temper
of the Boers show that nothing but a
most crushing defeat will bring them
to their senses or induce them to
hearken to reason. The fierce implacable spirit of DeWet is in the ascendancy, and so long as that iB the case
peace can scarcely be looked for.
Then, the fact that an offer of peace
has been rejected haB, no doubt, considerably complicated matters. The
most will be made by tbe Boer leaders in impressing the men with the
idea tl.iit the British are growing tired of the war, that they are aoxious
to give it np; and thut all they bave
to do is to hold on a little longer in
order to have their independence re-
tored. Discussing tbe situation in
'���'niit'i Africa the Toronto Mail and
i_i_oire expresses the jelief that the
most discouraging fact of ~V. is the attitude taken by certain public men
and public journals in Great Britain
in respect to this matter. The most
dangerous of Britain's foes are those
of her own household. Liberty, when
it degenerates into licentiousness, becomes an appaling danger. And this
Is what has taken place in tho Old
Land in these perilous times. Even
in the house of commons men indulge
in the most mischievous talk, without
the slightest regard for duty or responsibility. At a time when the
most precious blood of tbe Empire is
being shed and the financial resources
of the people are being heavily taxed
to maintain the integrity and honor
of that Empire, these men act and
talk as if their only duty���the sole object for which they had been Bent to
parliament���was to give aid and comfort to the enemy! They know perfectly well that the die has been cast,
that the fiat has gone forth, that tbe
whilom South African republics are
henceforth to form a part of the British Empire; that there is no reasonable probability of this decree being
reversed by any human agency I that
oan be brought into requisition; and
yet these men are not ashamed to use
their influence to encourage these unfortunate people to pour out their
blood like water in the vain attempt
to retrieve the lost cause. Aud all

them with a callous unscrupulousuess|
which has forever made them Ills enemies.���Rossand Miner.
The editor of the Rossland Miner |
is going to be called a liar and a |
blackguard by the Nelson Tribune-
at least it may be assumed so, for the
former has had the audacity to tell
the truth about John Houston,
M. P. P.
As we have said, no attention what
soever would be paid to anything that
John Houston may have to say, or
to anything that he may do were it
not that his position as a member of
the assembly gives him the privilege
of blocking legislation which is in tho
best interest of the district and of the
province at large.���Rossland Miner.
By his (John Houston's) single voice
on Wednesday, the consideration of
the bill for granting the charter for
the construction of the British Columbia A Southern railway was laid
over until next week, thus occasioning a needless and annoying delay.
Mr. Houston knows, or ought to
know, that neither he, nor tbe company whose tool he is, can prevent the
construction of this line; he knows
that the people of the Kootenays are
demanding in the strongest manner
that this charter shall be given, and
yet to serve the purposes of a corporation which in this particular at least,
are the enemies of the people, he is
willing to swallow all that he has
said in the past and hold himself up
to the contempt of the people among
whom he has to live and on whom
he depends for his livelihood.���Rossland Miner.
TAs the editor of a newspaper John
Houston for years shrieked wildly for
provincial rights and competitive
railways, and posed as an enemy of
railways and monopolies and therefore
of the C. P. R. Recently he paid a
visit to the federal capital and Montreal and on his return he was a
changed man. Since that time he
has been the warmest and most uncompromising fiiend of the 0. P. R.
He not only speaks, writes and votes
in favor ot giving to that company
e��e.ything whicli it asks, but he op-
. /er. concession a_y mpany
wV'iri t'rtn -n th." most remote wuy be
regarded as a compel.. _ those
whom be so faithfully serves.���Rossland Miner.
In politics in this province John
Houston has been "everything
by turns and nothing long." in
the fullest sense of the words. He
has coquetted with every faction and
been true to none. He aspired to be
the counsellor and friend of the Labor
party. He was the loudest shouter
in the province for the rights of the
workingman, and as soon as he had
succeeded in obaining, to a partial
degree, at least, their confidence and
seouring   their voice,   he    betrayed
If the record of Mr. John Houston,
the local member from Nelson, and
the editor and proprietor of the Tribune in that city, were not so well
known to the people of Kootenay,
some store might be placed by his utterance and his attitude in regard to
the railway policy of the province
As it is, however, no person in this
district will treat anything that he
has to say, or action he may choose
to adopt, either in his paper or on
the floor of the house, with aught but
derision and contempt.���Rossland
Miner.
John Houston posed for a while
��� ; a L" .'ral and then, without warning, transferred his wavering allegiance to the Conservative party. He
nominated Mr. MacNeill at a Conservative convention in Revelstolte and
through his paper did his utmost to
weaken that gentleman in the constituency, and finally urged him to retire. He took no stand, publicly,
whatsoever when Mr. McKane jumped
into the breach occasioned by Mr.
MacNeill's withdrawal, but gave
his secret and treacherous support to
Mr. Galliher.���Rossland Miner.

bead-roll of her sons who have achieved greatness and made their names
known to the world, a special place
in the regard Of all: Canadians is kept
for the distinguished daughter of the
Dominion whom Winnipeg haB the
honor Of having as a guest this week.
As Mme. Albani's. countrymen, we
all feel that she somehow reflects upon
us all somewhat of the honor and
fame which she has won for herself
in such abundant - measure. Her
name,like Adelina Patti's, is a household world among the world's lovers
of music, and i,t is her special glory
to have widened their numbers by disclosing the beauty and the compelling
power of .pathos that can be drawn
from simple, homely ballads that
3peak to the hearts of all. Great as
have been ber lyric triumphs on the
operatic stage, and unqualified as
her success as the first of oratorio
singers in England, it is the notes of
her liquid voice in the plain songs
which people love, like "HOme,
Sweet Home," that will linger longest in the hearts of the many thousands who have heard ber sing. The
prophecy of tbe great Italian maestro,
Lamperti, "There is a fortune in
that little throat," has been richly
fulfilled. The career of Mme. Albani
has been an unbroken series of artistic triumphs in Italy, France, Germany, Russia and England, on this
continent and, in fact, in every land.
Canadians take pride in her as a great
singer, and they take an added pride
in her because she is, like the great
Queen who held her as a close friend,
a good woman.���Winnipeg Free

THE FRIGHTENED KAISER.
German Press   Believes Emperor William Is   Badly Scared.
Berlin, March 30.���Emperor William's speeches at the dedication of
tbe new barracks, near the Imperial
castle, of the- Emperor Alexander's
grenadier regiment, are still the sensation of the hour. The Vorwelohs
today vouches for its sharpest version
of the emperor's speech. The Ham
burg correspondent also sayB that the
version published by tbe Kreuz Zelt
ung is much milder than the emperor's original woi-iIh.
The police are still puzzling over
what caused the emperor recently to
indulge in such pessimistic talk and
consider his words to be unwarranted
by facts. They point out also that
the emperor's prediction, answering a
toast Thursday night, to the effect
that Germany would soon have to fight
' against overwhelming odds, is at variance with all the declarations of
Count Von Buelow,the imperial chancellor,who represents Germany as surrounded by friends.
Outside of Prussia,   the  disapproval
of the press including tho serni-oBieial
' newspapers of the emperor's sensational speeches is even greater. The
comments of the Stuttgart Schwae-
hische Mercury are to the effect that
the speeches are calculated to arouse
widespread misunderstandings. The
semi-official newspaper of August-
burg says the speeches fill every patriot with deepest regret and greatest
fear tor the future and  awakens  the
. fear that the Bremen incident had
bred images   in   the emperor's   mind
��� whioh are the product   of an over ex-
>' erted fancy.
GERMANY AND CHINA.
;  0. S.  and   Germany   Are   nt  One on
Indemnity Problem.
Berlin, March 30.���The correspond-
i ent of the Associated Press hears that
| regarding tbe Chinese   indemnity and
li the mode of apportioning  it, there '.is
.' no divergence of  opinion between the
'' United States and Germany, notwithstanding the  numerous  statements to
the contrary.   The American embassy
and the German foreign office hold almost dally conferences   on the subject
of China, hitherto always   leading to
mutual understanding.
It is said in official circles that the
negotiations at Pekin are now wholly
confined to the details of questions
regarding indemnity and that noth
ing of Importance is transpiring
there. Germany does not know
whether the   Russo-Cbinese Manchur-
��� ia.. agreement bas been signed or not.
Officials here regard the Corean question to be progressing satisfactorily
and do not believe Japan will become
aggressive in the matter.
today received a cablegram from his
government, stating that the constituent has appointed President Castro to
be president of Venezuela. When the
presidency changed hands not long
ago Castro pioelairned himself president and this action of tbe constituent invests him with the full powers
of a presidential ruler to the limit of
its authority. Up to this time, while
generally recognized as president of
Venezuela he has In reality been simply direetor of tbe republic.

charged with having substituted for
men who are to be deported by the
government, men who had been held

China. It is claimed that the Chinamen made the substitution so as to
send the two who wished to go baok
to China, to that country at the expense of the United States government, while those who should be deported, remained in their places.

Colonel Poster Goes toll igher Office in

Lieutenant-Colonel Hubert Foster,
quartermaster general of the Canadian

department at Ottawa, his wish to

commanding.

Dark and Killed His Wife.

Montgomery, residing near Hobart,

Ben," the   Peterboro  bull-dog  taken
as a mascot to South Africa by Strathcona's Horse, arrived in the city after
a  most   eventful   experience.    "Ben
jamin Ben" developed  a   remarkable
aptitude for getting lost, and  caused
the regiment no end of   worry search
ing for its  mascot.   He was stolen at
Cape Town by a  South   African, who
had the good taste  to  appreciate  the
iine-looking  Canadian   dog, and   was
eventually recovered.   Ben accompan

ings over   tbe   veldt   and   kopje, and
made tbe   return   trip  as far as Lon
don.   There the dog again managed to
lose  himself,   and  the  regiment   re<
turned to Canada without   him.   The
mascot's luck proved genuine, for in a

at the refnge for stray dogs at Batter

to Canada by Sergt. Milligan, and his
future bas yec to be determined.

QUESTION   ANSWERED.
Yes, August Flower still has the lar-
?;est sale of any medicine in the civil-
zed world. Your mothers and grandmothers never thought of using any
thing else for Indigestion or Biliousness. Doctors were scarce, and they
seldom heard of Appendicitis, Nervous
Prostration or- Heart failure, etc.
They used August Flower to clean out
the system and stop fermentation of
undigested food, regulate the action
of the system, and that is all they
took when feeling dull and bad with
headaches and other aches. You only
need a few doses of Green's August
Flower, in liquid form, to make you
satisfied there is nothing serious the
matter with yon. For sale by W. F.

The report on the validity of the
by-law under which tbe recent issue
of debentures was sold has been forwarded to Ames A. Co., of Toronto,
the successful tenderers, by R. W.
Ilannington, wbo represented the
company in tne matter. It appears
that a very nice point of law has arisen in connection with the matter.
There is a possibility, though not a
probability, that the debenture may
he declared illegal through an apparently trifling mistake in publishing
the by-law. The by-laws were advertised for the legal number of insertions in both local papers. One of the
clauses as published in the Tribune
reads: "And whereas, it will be necessary to raise annually by rate the
sum of sixty-seven and ninety-four
80,701.00) dollars for paying the said
debentures and interest."
Tho error will be seen at a glance,
namely that in spelling out the amount
to be raised annually the word hundred is omitted. Although the
amount is described accurately in the
bracketted Agues, Mr. Hannington's
opinion, after looking into the matter
closely, was tbat the error was not
fatal to the by-law, and he bas advised Messrs. Ames A Co. to this  effect.
The company's own solicitors will
take tbe question up, however, and
upon their reading of the law regarding debenture issues will tbe completion of the t.ansac'ion be determined.
There is no precede H in the records
of Canadian conrts leal ing directly
with the point in issue here, the only
judgment quoted being one in which
it is stated that the bylaw must be
followed accurately in the advertisement. The case in which this judgment was given involved a disparity
in dates which would naturally be a
more serious factor. The outcome of
the matter is 'one of vital interest to
ratepayers.

OALL AND SEE.
QUEEN STUDIO,
Baker Street.
In the spring of 1898 Nelson joined
the ranks of fashion centres. The
"Old Timers" shook their heads and
prophesied all kinds of dire things.
They had been living in the blessed-,
ness of isolation from those marts
where seasons bring with them
changes in the styles. The hats their
wives wore were not of necessity discarded at the end ot three months.
They were put away and "made
over," the liu.bnrids hank account
was drawn on for only a dollar or
two and the wife was thoroughly satisfied.
But in April, 1898, there came a
change. Fred Irvine A Co. advertised
an Easter millinery opening and
then it was the "Old Timers" were
heard to mourn. The "made over"
bats wouldn't do any more. The hats
shown to the ladies of Nelson at that
first Easter opening were too tempting in their beauty to allow them to
remain where they were nnd the bank
accounts suffered. In 1899 there was
another Easter opening and again
the ladies of Nelson were offered the
latest styles in headgear. And so the
Easter millinery opening became an
annual affair and the Nelson ladies,
us do those of all other enterprising
towns, waited for the first days of
April.
This year's Easter openings occur
next Tuesday. The pioneer milliners
of four yenrs ago, Fred Irvine A Co.,
are not alone in extending an invitation this year to the ladies of Nelson.
Messrs. Kerr A Co. advertise their
second opening.and promise to show
to the visitors many new and novel
things in hats. Mrs. McLaughlin
and Mrs. Enfield are also in the field
with all of the newest patterns.
It is safe to say that tbe displays in
Nelson next Tuesday will be the most
extensive and most beautiful ever
seen in this city. A glance at the millinery departments yesterday, none of
them yet in complete readiness for
Tuesday, showed the tastiest arrangement of fluff and frill and color that
could possibly be obtained. Dainty
shades of pink and purple and blue
and gray are exquisitely arranged in
the wonderful creations of the milliners' skill. Hats this year, so the m)lr
liners explain, are nearly all of the
flat variety. Exactly what folble;:_d
fashion is responsible for this jt is IB.-
possible to tell with accuracy, foi*lilt
that even the lady experts themselttep
will tell is that it is the style now;
and therefore, flat hands are in demand. Probably It is on account /of
the prevailing style of hair dressing,
which is low and flat in the front,
and naturally hats are made to conform with the style of hair. For the
woman wbo dislikes to make herself
conspicuous, but who loves a handsome hat, this year's styles would appear to be just the proper thing.
This dissertation on hats, it had better be stated here,'is written by a
man and the ladies are at perfect liberty to take exception to any expressions of opinion contained herein, for
if there is anything tbat the ordinary
man knows nothing of, it is hats. He
knows the prices of them but beyond
that all is blank. The man in question was shown some Parisian hats
by Mr. Will Irvine yesterday morning. Like the New York patterns,
they are flat. Like them, too, they are
beautiful. So dainty are some of
them that a man would be afraid to
touch them for fear of crushing a
pretty flower or a piece of lace. At
Kerr & Co.'s, too, The Miner man
was lost in bewilderment amid a vast
display of hats of all inscriptions. He
has forgotten what he was told about
them but the visions of their .eauty
still remain. Mrs. McLaughlin and
Mrs. Enfield, the former in her new
store in the premises recently vacated hy .1. J. Walker, the jeweler, and
the latter in the opera house block,
also have extensive stocks of beautiful
pattern hats.
Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday
next have been set aside as millinery
days in Nelson and during that time
the hats will be on display.
While the Hudson's Bay stores have
no millinery department Manager
Gebot wbb recently offered and purchased at a very low price some handsome Parisian bats which he will
have on exhibition and for sale during
the coming week. They are of the
latost patterns and made up of the finest materials and will be offered for
sale at-low -prices.

HOODOOED FREIGHT���
Some one possessing tho evil eye appears to bave cast a hoodoo on the P.
Burns Co. Earlier in the week the
firm shipped a refrigerator car loaded
with meat to Slocan nnd the car jumped tbe track at bridge No. 40 into the
river which is many feet deep. Yesterday another "ar was sent forward
to replace the one lost, and at Ihe
identical spot tbe second car jumped
tbe track. Fortunately it did not get
into the river and the company did
not lose the shipment.

STRIKES A RICH FIND.
"I was troubled for several years
with chronic indigestion and nervous
debility," writes F. J. Green, of
Lancaster, N. H., "No remedy helped
me until I began using Electric Bitters, which did me more good than
all the medicines I ever used. They
have also kept my wife in excellent
health for years. She says Electric
Bitters are just splendid for female
troubles; tbat they are a grand tonic
and invigorator for weak, run down
women. No other medicine can take
its place in our family." Try them.
