Probable That the Duchess of
Cornwall Will Not Gross
Canada.
A Conservative Unseated ln
West Durham.-Eastern News.
(SPECIALS TO THE!  .11 MO It.)
Montreal, June 10.���A private letter
received from London this morning
brings interesting news, which may,
if it proves correct, interfere with the
programme laid down for the tour of
t:ieir Royal Highnesses, the Duke and
Duchess of Cornwall and York, in
Canada. The loiter states that it is
currently reported in society circles
that her Royal Highness is expect'ng
an addition to her family and that this
interesting event is expected to take
place about the limo when the Royal
party is scheduled to reach Canada.
Should this prove correct, it is quite
possible that the Duke of Cornwall
and York will have to make the transcontinental ttip without the Duchess,
who may have to remain either in
Quebec or Ottawa until Ilis Royal
Highness returns.
Two social clubs incorporated by
the Oity Council were raided hy the

Canadians threaten to have the St.
James club raided also as retaliation.

OANNER'S OFFER

THE LAST OF
SUNDAY BALL
PLEASED THE   HOUSE.
"Shanius O'Brien" Scored a Big Success at tbe  Theater Last Night,
There was a whiff of Old Ireland at
the Opera House last evening when
Charles Erin Verner and company
produced the Irish comedy drama
"SV.amus O'Brien." Mr. Virnerlas
been lauded as a "celebrated Irish
comedian" and his work last night
showed that he is thoroughly entitled
to the distinction. His comedy is of a
dry, rich variety that is irresistible
and productive of peals of laughter.
In the heavier work he displayed his-
tronic ability of a high order, his
siene when parting from his mother
in the prison being very clever and
pathetic. Of his support the same
measure of deserved praise cannot be
given. The most pleasing work was
that of Miss Bishop, as "Miss
O'Rielly." It was a small part but
very daintily portrayed. Mr. Oblein
was an extravagant,but withal clever,
English officer. Louis Belmour had
the thankless part of the villian and
did it so well that the gallery sot up
a groat cheer when he wus killed.
Miss Miller and Miss Belmour were
fair in their parts.
The perforinnuce, on the whole, was
a pleasing Improvement ou most of
the companies that visit Nelson, and
tonight and tomorrow night the liouse
should be as orcwdtd as It was last
night by those an.:ious to see clean,
wholesome comedy. But a little moie
attention to details would be acceptable. The delightfully careless manner in which the house lights are controlled is refreshing. They wero not
turned on between two acts, leaving
tho house in semi-darKness, but the
genius of the switchboard made up
for it by leaving them on when the
curtain was up, and when a state of
semi-darkness would have been thc
proper thing.

(SPECIAI,. TO THE MINER.)
Vancouver, B. C., June 10.���Tile
canners' offer of 12 and 10 cents for
sockeyes has been refused by the
fishermen's unions. The Grand Lodge
of Fishermen met in Westminster on
Saturday. Reports were read from all
tbo unions regarding the vote taken
on thc offer made by thc canners and
avitholit exception each lodge refused
to accept the offer. Individually,however, .0 per cent of the fishermen
were in favor of accepting the otter.
The Province claims that they have
information to the effect thut Vancouver's population will be between 35,-
000 and 25,500.
Parmer Poison has disappeared from
Now Westminster. He recently lost
his horse and buggy at the ferry landing and fretted about it a good deal.
Next day he could not bo found and
it is feared he has been di owned. He
has been Snf-.ing  for ~ month.
Vancouver. B. C, Juno 10.���The
Grand Lodge of the Fishermen's
Union reported to the executive of the
canners' combine this afternoon that
the white fishermen and Indians declined to accept the offer of the canners. The proposition was to puy 12
cents for sockeyes during July und 10
cents during August, with tho understanding that the price would be
lowered thereafter if the run was too
big to bundle. A great deal of argument was advanced on both sides and
tho whole question was threshed out.
The canners' executive finally informed the fishermen's executive that
their demand for 15 for fish was simply out of the question and was not
considered, but that the time for the
. aymeut of 12 cents per fish would be
extended until the thiid of August,
thus taking in another Saturday,
Dr. Bell Irving, chairman of tbe
canners' executive, states that he
does not believe the fishermen will
accept the proposition of the cunners,
and he fears a strike and probably
trouble, for the canners were not prepared to make any further concessions
but would go on and put up their puck
with any fishermen, Japunese, Indians
or whites, who would accept their
terms.

Indemnity   Granted Medical
Health Officer on Account
of Law Suit.
Unless tho wishes of a majority of
the City Aldermen can be overruled,
or ignored, by the minority,there will
be no more Sunday ball games on the
recreation grounds, notwithtanding
the recent violation of the resolution
of the Council to die contrary. The
early proeeedigs of tho Council meet
ing last evening went as smoothly as
a swallow skimming the untroubled
sea. All business was completed at
an early hour and the Aldermen were
preparing for adjournment and the
reporters were stacking their copy,
when all attention was directed to
Alderman Hamilton, who asked permission to ask a couple of questions.
Before the requisite permission was
granted or the questions asked everyone present knew what was coming.
The little cloud, no bigger than a
man's hand a week ago, had gath?ied
tjrce and descended   in a flood.
The questions asked by Alderman
Hamilton related to the cause of tbe
resolution passed by the Council at a
previous meeting, regarding the
prohibition of bull games on Sunday
not having been observed. The Mayor
asked that the resolution be read, and
followed the reading of it by the
stntcment that the resolution was addressed to no one who had authority
tc enforco it and there was nothing to
prevent the boys from playing ball on
the rcreation ground if thev so de-
sired. Ho further stated that the
only way they could take any action
on the matter ut all was for somo of
the Aldermen or some ono else to
lodge a complaint and ask to hnve
Sunday ball games suppiessed by a
charge of violating tho Lord's Day
Observance Act, and claimed that so
far as the resolution cf the Council
was concerned it was merely an expression of opinion and had no
weight.
Alderman Irving enquired as to
what were the powers of the Couneil
in regard to tho City property. The
Mayor replied that there was no bylaw in the city to enable the Council
to enforce the resolution and if they
were going to restrain people from
doing these things thoy must do
it in a legal way. Most of the
ground was prlvato property and thoy
oould not interfere.
An Alderman asked If they bad not
power to prevent ball games being
played on the oity thoroughfares,
which were pnrt of thc enclosed
space wheie the bull games were held.
The Mayor claimed that a resolution
of the Council could not open or close
them.
An Alderman claimed that thoy
have a right to order the fences removed whore it crosses the city
streets. The Mayor admitted that as
far as the streets wero concerned the
Council could aot. Alderman Patterson nsnod what would happen if ball
giimes were played on linker street?
He was satisfied that thoy would have
thoin stopped nt once. He claimed
that in the same inunner they bad the
power and right to enforce the resolution on the sumo principle und regarded it us a slight on a mujoiity of
the members of tbe Council that no
effort had been made to nave the resolution put into operation.
The Mayor claimed that If they had
not sprung the matter upon the
Council in the manner they did that
It might have been deliberated upon
more carefully and addressed to thc
propei  authority.
Alderman Irving hold that it wns
submitted to the propor authorities.
Thc Mayor snid they must nddress
their resolution to those in charge of
tho police.
Alderman Irving elainied that it
was the duty of tbe Mayor to seo the
wishes of the Council were executed.
Other deeisionns of the Couoil were
unforced either by the department in
Charge of that particular work or In
the absence of uny particular department being in charge of that particular work, the Mayor   was supposed to J
see it carried out. The Mayor elainied
that   it   was   not his duty to enforce
the resolution   und that he had power
to veto the resolution. Alderman Gillett asked that if the majority of the
Aldermen did uot rule he wanted to
know the reason why they did not.
All thin discussion had taken pluce
,'wihout a motion before the house and
J the Mayor called the meeting to order
demanding that before any further
discussion on tho matter would be
allowed that a motion must be put in
writing, whereupon Alderman Hamilton recorded the following motion,
whicli was seconded by Alderman Patterson, that the police commissioners
be requested to have the resolution,
passed by the Counc'l regarding the
Sunday games in the city limits, put
into effect.
No further discussion took place on
the matter. The motion was then put,
and supported by Aldermen Hamilton,
Putterson, Irving and (iillett and was.
passed without a contrary vote. Thisi
notion of the Couneil practically removes the responsibility of the enforcement of the resolution from Mayor Fletcher to Police Commissioner
Fletcher, who joins with Aldennan
Selous and Hugh Cameron tho duty of
ils application.
Another matter of interest, and another chapter in a weekly story,which
the Council is running, aiosc out of a
communication from Dr. La llau, the
Cityllealth Officer,requesting the Council to indemnify him for costs in the
suit in which Drs. Hall and Rose me
sning him for the amount of damages,
whicli previously they had sued the
Council for, but had withdrawn. Al-
deiiuan Patterson claimed that the
injury to the instruments in question
urose from contributory negligence on
the part of the sufferers. The Mny-
or remarked that the claims of Drs.
Hull und Rose was simply disgraceful,
and no reasonable men would be
guilty of making such a claim.
Alderman Selous suggested that the
Mayor request the press not to report
the proceedings under this head, seeing that thc Council wero in danger
of huving u lawsuit on their hands.
The Mayor remarked that he was now
speaking his mind on the question before the Conncil, and did not care
whether he was reported or not.
Alderman Selous elainied that it
was their duty as a Council to put
themselves on record and stand hy
their officials, because if they failed
to support them iu the discharge of
their duties they wonld soon be unable to get officials at any price.
The Mayor claimed that it was their
duty to assist Dr. LaBau in the discharge of his duties in every way
they possibly could and in fighting
the unjust claim   made against him.
Alderman Patterson claimed that it
was their duty to stand by theii city
officials.
The Mayor claimed thnt it would
indicate a spirit of meanness to step
out and allow the Health Officer to
suffer Ihe cost of the suit which was
laid against him.
Aldennan Irving approved of tho
idea suggested, that the Council
ought to stand by the officers of the
city, but thought that they ought not
to do so in this case at the present
Stage.
Aldennan Gillett claimed that the
city had nothing to do with the matter, and they ought not to ussnmo any
such liability as it might lead them
into costly litigation. He claimed
that the whole cause of the trouble
uroso from the fact thut the man employed by tho Health Olllcer to perform the duties of disinfecting did
not know his business and wns unfitted for the tusk. Therefore the eity
bad no right to he responsible.
Alderman living was decidedly in
fnvor of standing by the city officials,
but It wus not quite clear to him
whether the cause of the trouble wns
duo to the fuct as suggested by Aide
man Gillett, and if so he did not see
thnt thoy ought to be held responsible.
The Mayor stated that the same man
had disinfected his liouse und everything had teen all right and Dr. La
Bau claimed tbat he was a competent
man and the system adopted wns tho
one alavuys adopted in thc general
hospital where thoy bud expensive
operating fables and instruments, und
no complaints wero received or Injury
done.
It was thon moved by Alderman
Selous and seconded by Alderman
Madden that Dr. La llau be given the
letter of Indemnity bb requested by
his BolicitoiH, Macdonald at Johnson,
and carried by u majority, Alderman
Gillett being the only one voting
uguinst It.

A TRAGEDY
OF THE COAST
Interesting Account of the Occurrence by Adjutant
McGill.
Terrible Ending to a Honeymoon.���A   Peculiar
Murderer.
In last Saturday's Miner mention is
made of a story in Mctlure's for Juno
of a , remarkable self-convicted murderer at Skagwa-, who after being
converted by the Salvation Army at
Skagway, of which Adjutant McGill,
now of Nelson, was then the head,
confessed to a iuoBt heinous crime,
his sentence of death being afterwards commuted by President Mc-
Kinley. Considerable interest having
been manifested in tho story and a
number of local exchanges having
made icference to it, an account given
to a representative of The Miner by
Adjutant McGill will prove intajrest-
ing.
There was an Indian feast given up
on un inlet on the coast some distance
from Skagaay at whish, aftei a few
days, provsjons began to run short.
An Indian and his wife left for
Haines' .Mission, 12 miles away, to
purchase supplies. After waiting several days for their return, the root of
the tribe became impatient and a
party of 13 started down to look for
them. At the mouth of the Inlet a
piece ot ennoe was observed, and
across a pebbln bar, a short distance
away, a tent with a young white man
standing beside it. According to tho
story finally elicited at the trial the
party advanced towards him, four
carrying gun's, with tlie intention of
questioning him. The white man was
a Mr. llorton, of Skagway, who with
his bride, a handsome and prepossessing young lady, were spending their
honeymoon on ii cumping trip. Mr.
llorton nppeured to bo suspicious of
the Indians and asked them what they
wanted, finally telling ill im to stand
hack. Jim Hansen, one of tbe Indians, then raised his gun and shot
llorton dead. At the sound of the
shot .Mis. llorton rushed out of the tent,
und was immediately shot by another
Indian, but not fatally. As she lay
on the ground a thud Indian ran forward and cut her throat. The murderers then destroyed or burned the
tent nnd belongings of the hapless
couple, ulso burying the bodies.
This was early in the summer. In
OUober Adjutant and Mrs. McGill,
who wore holding services at Skagway, happened to visit the Indian
settlement and seeing a good field for
their work held a special weekly ser-
vleo for Indians only. Early in November Jim Hansen came up to tho
penitent form,and among other things
made allusion to somo great crime he
had committed. Nothing yet having
been beard of the terrible deed up the
const, no particular nttention was
paid to liis disconnected words, until
early in January ho came to the Adjutant and told the whole story, as
above related. Ho asked wbat ho
should do, and was told that though
It meant death thut there wus but one
path, lie asked for a few weeks'
grace to put his affairs In order, so
that liis wife, to whom he had been
married but u shoit time, should not
lie left destitute. This wus grunted,
and puictuully, on the day appointed,
he luturnod Ind with the Adjutant he
went before tho looul Judge, who was
in perfect Ignorance of what ho was
to hear, There wus a drnmntic pause
ufter the Judge had asked the Indian
what he hnd to suy. Then Hansen
related his murder of llorton, not,
however, mentioning anything about
the murder of Mrs. llorton by the
others, lie took the Marshal to the
scene of the murder, where the bodies
were disintt rrcd, and bit by bit the
evidence accumulated which resulted
in the in icst of the eleven other culprits. After tho preliminary examination all were committed to a small
Jail,where thoy were kept from March
until the arrival of the Judge In June.
Hanson wns the lirst brought np.
He pleuded "guilty," but his attorney
wus asked to witndraw the plea in
ordei to allow the law to take Its

FOR THE HONOR OF CANADA.
Four or five expeditions in sesrch of
the Noith Pole a.e beiDg fitted out,
and as many in search of the South
Pole. An American gentleman is undertaking the entire expense o' ono
of thein. The United States has already earned a goodly share of such
credit as belongs to these enterprises.
Great Britain, of course, as in everything else calculated to promote scientific Knowledge, has long enjoyed a
pre-eminence in Polar explorations.
France and Germany have been more
or less prominently asLOciated with
them. This year, it is said, Russia,
Austiia, and Italy will each fit out an
expedition. Little Norway has covered herself with glory in connection
with this work. Only Canada of all
the advanced nations of the cirth is
without a single line of credit in this
field of great popular activity. A
Canadian navigator. Capt.Bernier, appealed to Parliament last session for
aid in fitting out an expedition. The
aid was not given. It was not refused,
however, tbe Premier promising tbat
if the Canadian people would contribute a share of the cost the Government would do the rest. Our plucky
countryman wa~, compelled to content
himself with that,and now he is waiting with true seaman's impatience to
see what the people propose to do
about it.
Some gentlemen of spirit have taken
the matter up and are soliciting sub-
seriptJons. Lists have been placed in
nearly all the ' jy?ns and cities of the
Dominion. T.ieio are lists in Nelson,
bnt it was said not many days ago
that not a single contribution had
been made. The Miner has had the
hooor of a personal request ..'om Capt
Bernier to op n a lis1, through its
columns.promisin;, that "the names of
the subscribers will be recorded in the
official records of the undertaking to
be handed down to po.le.lty in the
history of Aictic exp'oration," We
cannot refuse the request, although
sensible of the uniimeline-s of the appeal for aid, when the town is bled
freely for its annual Dominion Day
saturnalia. But we cannot but hope
that there are Caiiudia-is in Nelson
whose patriotism can rise superior to
the ephemeral sports cf even a national holiday, and who will be willing
to associate tbetnselvrj with a movement culcnlnted to give distinction
to their country. Individual subscrip
tions need not be lnrge. One hundred
dollars, or two at the most, will be
a generous contribution for a town
liko Nelson, and this sum we have no
doubt can readily bo raised if some
gentlemen prominent in the community will take sufficient interest to start
the ball rolling. The Minor wouln
appeal to the citizens of Nelson to
.now hy their response that, although

the character of the service supplied
Western Canada by the Associated
Press, and leave the cable and general
service East to other hands. There is

of the tervice supplied to newspapers

Conservative Governments knew
what it was to have deficits in operating Canada's one State-owned railway, tha Intercolonial, although for
a year or two Mr, Iluggert professed
to ranke ends pretty nearly meet. This
was probablv due, however, to speciul
book-keeping and to systematic starvation of tbe service. When the Liberals
came in they were going to do better.
Pursuit of 'ike methods made a good
showing for a time, but it could not
be kept up wit'iout inviting disaster.
Latterly substantia deficits have been
the rule. At Montreal a few days ago
MY.Blair had to admit that the defi-.it
for tlie last half year would be in the
vicinity of half a million dollars.
As railway managers Canadian governments havo not been a.succesb.
We wonder if the Ministers at Victoria were induced to double the tax on

it is not surpiising that tbeir stupidity found the particular form of ex-
pretiion that it did.

A LUCKY FIND.
What proved to be a more profitable find than gold happened the other day to a traveller a'rom San Francisco, while at Innch in one of tbe
leading restaurants in Nelson, lie
ordered a portion of 1J uronkin pie,
when to his astonishment his appe-
titie, which he had lost fifteen years
ago in Arizona, suddenly returned lo
hiin, with renewed vigor. The pie
had a very solid texture and a rich
mellow flavor. The cook informs us
that it was made from "The Morse
Pumpkin Flour." None other just as
good.    Insist on "Tlie Morse llrand."

A TRAGEDY OF THE COAST
Continued from First Page.
situation developed. All tbe tribe
turned against Hansen, and some of
the othor Indians win bad .eon present, and had been released to act as
witnesses all told exactly tbe same
Story, namely, tbat Hansen hud fired
flred three .hots, one at tbe man and
'.two at the woman. Hansen declared
he had flred one shot at the man, and
meant to fire another, but that the
second cartridge jammed and he was
unable to force it in, and tbat while
Btinggling with tbo gun, another Indian fired and tbe second horrible
tragedy was enacted. His wife, who
had been the only Indian woman present, refused to say whether two or
three shots bad been died, pretenJing
���he was asleep. Despite all the evidence being so plain against him bis
manner impressed all, and when the
Marshal produced a loaded cartridge
which had been found on the spot
where Hansen had stood, showing the
clearest evidence of having been repeatedly scored by the breech block
In the effort to force it into the
breech, all were convinced of his
truthfulness. Hansen made no effort
to excuse or exculpate himsef but instead tried to shield the others, de-
Spite their calumniating him to the
tallest extent possible. The other Indians had tbe services of two lirst
class lawyers, the tribe, a very
wealthy one, having furnished the
money for their defense. Hansen at
one time was cross-examined without
cessation for four and one-half hours,
bat the questioning only more clearly
Jlroved bis truthfulness. Finally the
Judge sentenced Hansen to death, and
the other two Indians were condemned to fifty years each. In passing sentence on Hansen the Judge said:"The
Court has great sympathy for you. It
is through you that this crime bas
been exposed and yourself and tbe
Others brought to justice and punished. You have been truthful and have
not tried to screen yourself in the
slightest degree. Your conduct in this
respect entitles you to the highest
consideration. I trust that while this
Court is com'elled to pass upon you
the sentence of death that the Great
Father at Washington may Jet exer-
eise clemency towards you, and save
you from the consequences of your
fearful crime. It may be that the
Gieat Father of the white people will
not be able to do anything for you.
God alone can tell what the future
unfolds for you." The usual formula
of condemnation was then proceeded
with and September set for the execution of Hansen, An appeal for clem-
ency suggested by the Judge, prosecuting attorney and tlie leading people of Skagway was granted, and the
sentence changed to imprisonment for
life.
Hansen is now undergoing tbe same
at McNeil's Island, and Adjutant
McGill has secured several letters
from him. Thc Ail jut.nil. also has in
bis possession a most interesting
series of photcs of the places and all
connected with the story. The photo
Of Mr. and Mrs. Hoiton is an especially pathetic one; the groom a manly
looking young fellow, and the bride a
winsome g'rl, whose laughing eyes
contain little presage of the fate that
was to overtake her within a couple of
weeks after the photo was taken.
By a coincidence a letter arrived
from IIai.6en while the Adjutant was
nutrating the story. In it the convict
told of his daily round in tho prison,
and shows the same honest spiiit
that he manifested throughout the
trial.
LOST NO TIME���
About seven weeks ago James J.
Godfrey was appointed deputy mining
recorder here. Some three or four
days ago the suspicions of Recorder
Moluues, of New Denver, and Gold
Commissioner Chipman, of Kaslo,
were aroused; they came up, aud

ONE DRUNK���
A solitary drunk at the Police Court
was the only case of Sunday jubilation which the magistrate bad to deal
with yesterday morning and as he
was proved guilty the usual fine of So
and costs was imposed and immediately paid.
CHANGE OF TIME-
Next Sunday evening the service in
the Congregational church will begin
at 8 o'clock instead of 7:3(1.to give late
church goeis a chance to get there on
time and Mr. Munroe will preach in
the evening on tbe subject, ".Must the
Chinese Go?"
HIS TASTES-
No trace lias been found of the
sneak thives who broke into the residence of Mayor Fletcher and 0. C
Hodge on Saturday afternoon last during the absence of the proprietors at
the regatta. The one who entered the
house of the latter was evidently a
shoeless vegetarian, wbo took a pair
of shoes along with some oranges,
bread aud other articles of food, although lie left untouched a Supply of
ment which was equally handy.
ISA D ENOUGH���
There has heen enough sulphurous
language used about tlie weather tbis
last couple of weeks to warm it up,
but in Nelson there is some small
reason for satisfaction in that neighboring towns have had worse. The
Kossland Miner of Saturday says:
"Snow, rain, hail and brilliant sunshine within twelve hours is yesterday's tale, and this is difficult to beat
In. June. Rosiilas.ers are lucky they
raise 01c and not wheat."
THE LAST OF SUNDAY BALL
(Continued from First Page)
WHAT HAPPENED TO POWER���
Yesterday afternoon about 3 o'clock
the eastbonnd trolley car No. 1 was
waiting on the switch near Hall
street for the westbound No. 2 oar to
pass. No. 2 was almost on the switch
when it stopped short, to the surprise
of the motorman. An examination
was made of the working apparatus
but everything seemed to to be all
right and it was finally discovered
lhat the power bad been shut oiT.
There were a number of passengers in
both cars, all of whom after waiting
for varying periods, got out and
walked. In about an hour the power
came on again and the cars started.
