Winnipeg, April 3.���The hearing of
evidence in the Gordon murder case,
for which'Donald Todd iB on trial
.waa concluded this morning. The afternoon  was occupied by addresses to
. the jury,after which Chief Justice Ril-
lam made an Impartial charge. The

several times during the evening and
finally, at 9 p. m., were locked up for
the night:
Frederic Vllllers, the war corre
Bpondent, who lectured here last
night, says he considers   that Aguin-

rank, treachery, and the Filipinos
would have been perfectly justified in
hanging every one of his captors had
they been unsuccessful. No Hritish
officer would stoop to such a thing.

government measure amending the
Coal Mines Regulation bill was Introduced, and the government bill
providing Inspection for steam boilers also passed its second reading. A

NOW UNDER   CONSIDERATION BV
THE   SYNDICATE  OWNING

WHAT LOOKS LIKE   A MIDNIGHT
RACE   TO     YMIR    RECORD
OFFICE.
The affairs of the Hewitt mine in
the Silverton camp were under consideration here yesterday hy the owners. F. J. Holman and R. Unsinger
of Spokane, both members of the syndicate which owns the property were
In the city over night and met C. T.
Cross, of Silverton, the local manager
of the mine. The point under consideration is tbat of erecting a tramway
to connect the mine with the government road. No decision was arrived at,
but the outcome of the matter will
probably be known toward the end of
the week. A number of tenders for a
tramway have been filed witli the
company. The introduction of
a tram at the mine would mean that
the property would ship ore constantly during the summer, instead of confining Its attention to development until the snow necessary foi' shipping
put in an appearance next winter.
Naturally, the residents ot the camp
are anxious to see the management
proceed with the work. The Hewitt
is regarded as one of the most promising properties in the district in whicli
it is located.

Apparently the rush to relocate
claims supposed to have merit iB not
confined to the Nelson district. Yesterday's mining records contained another Instance of the entei prise manl-
ested in these matters when the circumstances seem to justify. Two records were filed on the same pleco of
ground, a claim on Wild Horse creek,
five miles from Ymir, and adjoining
the Black Cook property op the south.
In one instance the ground was staked at 8:30 a.m. as the Victoria Fraction, by A. Jullen, A. Andct and Eugene Julien. The other record was
by E. M. Peters, a business man pi
Ymir, who filed Ins record at 2..0 a.
m. There must have been some tall
hustling to get the records on file.
Peters recorded the ground as the
Black Hen claim, and apparently
drove his stakes within a few minutes
of midnight, riding posthaateto place

(SPECIAL TO THE MINER.)
Ottawa, April 2.���There was a
crowded meeting of tha railway committee today, as it was geneially expected that the bill to corporate the
Crow's.Nest Souther!., lallway would
come up for consideration . It was
tlie first On the order before the committee.
There have been conferences between the coal company and the C. P.
R. for some days past over this bill
and the parties interested sat until
an early hour this morning discussing the subect.
When the bill was called, Mr. Blair
said he wanted it to stand over, aa
there were some points outside the
companies concerned, in which the
public were Interested, (Hear, hear.)
He wanted a little more time to look
into these points, and therefore
would ask to allow the bill to stand.
There were no objections, and it
was decided to make the order the
first for Thursday week.
Thomas Murray, M. P., for Pontiae,
has given notice of the following resolution : "The time has arrived for
considering tbe advisability of. adopting such measures as may be deemed
necessary with a view of amending
the British Noith America Act in
the direction of reducing and limiting representation in the parliament
of Canada and the several assemblies
of the provinces; also the abolition of
tbe senate and legislative councils in
the several provinces In which tbey
exist, so that the whole machinery of
the government may be less cumbersome and expensive.
MANCHURIAN
AGREEMENT
The Russian View Explained
In a Despatch Prom St.
Petersburg.
If Agreement Is Not Signed
Might Be Unable to Retire At All.
JAVANESE WAR CLOUD.
Looms Up Blackly���Russia's Reply
WaB Not Satisfactory.
Yokohama, April 3.���Leading Japanese newspapers assert that the Russian government has leplied to Japan's protest against the Manchurlan
convention to the effect tbat Russia
does not wish to enter upon a discussion with a third power relative to
her negotiations with China, that
the proposed agreement Is purely temporary and not Intended to Impair
tbe sovereignty of China or to injure
the interests of other powers; that
the contents of the agreement immediately upon its conclusion will be
communicated to the other powers
who will undoubtedly find them acceptable; and finally, tbat it any of
the provisions are not acceptable to
Japan, Russia Is prepared to discuss
the matter  in a friendly spirit.
Russia's reply to Japan's protest
against the Manchurlan convention,
says the Yokohama correspondent of
the Dally Mail, is regarded aa unsatisfactory and further vigorous representations will follow. Prince Ko-
noye at Sumoro, president of the house
of peers lo tbe course of an Inflammatory speech, openly discussed the
probable results of war between Japan and Russia, and said that Japan
could count upon the friendly, neutrality of Great Britain and Germany.
He declared that the United States
would not interfere and that France
would only cause uneasiness by the
employment of her Annamese forces
and by a naval demonstration off
Foimosa. This, he predicted, would
be the limit ot French action and
therefore Japan's vastly superior array
would be enabled without great difficulty to drive Russia out of Manchuria.
THE GERMAN VIEW.
Berlin,   April    8.���Discussing
the
refusul of China to sign the Manchurlan convention, the Lokol Anzelger
says: "China cannot expert more
than the moral support of the European powers."
PARLIAMENT ADJOURNS.
London,   April    2.���The   house
commons   adjourned     yesterday
April 18th,
St. Petersburg, April 2.���The superior councillor of the Chinese legation, Chu We Jte, is continuing the
negotiations as charge d'affaires, regarding the Manchurlan agreement.
The Illness of tbe Chinese minister,
Yang Yu, is now admitted to be due
to apoplexy, which will Incapacitate
him from work probably for a long
period. It Is aaid that the loss of
half his estate through the destruction of a Chinese bank.combined with
political cares, Is undermining his
health.
Unofficial observers scarcely understand bow a doubt ean be possibly
enteitaincd abroad tbat China will
ultimately accept the Russian eondi

no power ta willing forcibly to uphold fraud, i For, aa it ta urged, while
Russia undoubtedly prefers to carry

but a Chinese refusal could easily
cause Russia to drop all negotiations.
She might say, "Very well, this
ends the matter. We desired to leave
Manchuria, but you prevent our leaving on terms consistent with the promotion of our railroad and other interests." It might easily happen that
Ruaaia would regard as an actuality
the contingency mentioned in the
August circular,- with a possibility
that the powers, by warning China
against accepting the Manchuria
agreement yesterday, rendered impossible the withdrawal of Russia.

For a Canoe Raoe Between British

Canoe club of England and the Winchester Boat club of Winchester took
H. J. Cambie, resident engineer for
the Pacific division of tho C. P. R.,
will spend today at Kootenay bridge
supervising the surveys now being
made there and securing other data
for use in preparing plans for the new
structure with which the company
proposes to replace the present bridge
When asked for particulars as to
the new work Mr. Cambie staled that
the bridge would be started in September next or thereabouts, when low
water set In. The conditions at high
water were such as to prevent the
work being carried on wbllo at low
vrafer the tilers could be erected on
dry land, thereby assuring first
class masonry. Tbe management had
not yet decided what style ot bridge
would be erected, but he hoped to Bee
a steel structure, ami would make a
recommendation to this effect.
It is generally understood that concurrent with the construction of the
new bridge at Kjotci.uy crossing, a
number of important improvements
will be made in connection with the
line on each side of the bridge for several hundred yards or a mile. Mr.
Cambie was asked as to this and replied that the new bridge would not
be built on the present line, whicli
would seem to indicate that the Improvements would be carried out.
One of the items iu this programme is
said to be a rock-cut of substantial
dimensions. With the work on the
bridge commenced in September next
and the operations continued as the
water level drops, It is estimated
by Mr. Cambie that the structure
could be completed by January.
Mr. Cambie spent yesterday at the
work on the Columbia river bridge,
and stated on his return to tho city
that tho undertaking was progressing
satisfactorily. On the completion of
the masonry contract it Is understood
that the work will stand for a time
until the water drops sufficiently to
permit of the false work necessary for
the erection of the steel superstructure
to be put up.
BRILLIANT ARMY OFFICER���
The local corps of the Salvation
Army is to be visited on Thursday
evening by one of the front rank women now at work In the army,
Lleut.-Colonel Blanche Head. As a
writer and speaker she lias few equals
In Canada and her visit Is looked
upon as u treat by those who huve
had the pleasure of hearing her elsewhere. Mrs. Head is and has been
for some time social secretary of 'the
department for women In the social
work of the army and consequently
has had a very varied experience aud
a deep insight Into the sad existing
conditions of things that hundreds of
army workers have given their lives
to remedy. She deals with different
aape.ts of the social question In her
address in the bairacks. Hev. J. 11.
White will act as chaiiinaii.
SHIPPING THE LAUNCH���
The handsome high-power steam
launch built at Hale's boat buuse for
Captain J. W. Troup will he shipped
to tho coast today. The craft will be
loaded on a barge at the boat house
and transferred to a couple of Hat
cars at the C, P. 11. slip.
LUMBER ARRIVING���
J. A.Sayward at Co, are now receiving a barge load of lumber daily from
their Pilot llay mill. The demand for
building material Is now lively.
Dr. Sinclair, of Rossland, spent yesterday in Nelson. He is Dominion
quarantine office for British Columbia
and in this capacity has full charge of
the quarantine stations at the international boundary line and Is charged
with the onerous task of providing
that no persons from suspected districts across the line ate permitted to
enter the province without establishing clean bills of health and undergoing vaccination if deemed necessary.
Discussing the work under his department, Dr. Sinclair  says:
"The quarantine now maintained
by the Dominion at the boundary is
perfect. It is next to Impossible for
dangerous persons to get over the line
into Canada, although tbe attempt is
frequently made. At Northport the
arriving trains from the south are detained and the doors of the coaches
oeked until the accredited agent of
the Dominion, a medical practitioner
if the State of Washington, passes
through and Inspects the passengers.
Then the cars are unlocked. Parties
boarding the train after the inspector
finishes his work do not escape. The
fact of their being aboard is wired
Ahead and on the arrival of the train
the offendeiB are detained and placed
undei arrest if necessary. The customs officer at Waneta has been placed under the direction of the quarantine by tho department and it ib part
of his routine duty to look after persons who attempt to cross Into the
province on foot. A number of people
do this, but whenever discovered they
are subjected to a rigid examination
and vaccinated or arrested If necessary. On the wagon road leading from
Northport to Rossland similar precautions are observed and with excellent ro.ults. We have had considerable trouble in enforcing tbe regulations, particularly at thu start, but
the system Is now worikng smoothly.
"The necessity for maintaining
these precautions will be realized
when It Ib stated that on the Colville
reservation tlie Washington state official under whose direction the matter
comes, informs me that there were in
March NT cases of malignant smallpox
reported, with nine deaths, and at
Spokane 19 cases. In Montana and
Idaho there are over mm cases, so that
the precautions are thoroughly justified. I am not advised how long the
quarantine is to be maintained, but
it will be kept up for this month at
least."
Dr. Sinclair leaves this morning for
Rossland, having completed bis tour
of inspection.

THE LAKE'S LEVEL-
Thc level of the water In the lake
at Nelson Is lowor today than It was

and Is 17 feet bilo.v normal high
water mark. If the lake rises this
year to the height attained by the
tlood In '94 the increase from the present levol will be as feet. At present
the water is stationary and there is
no indication of an Immediate or dangerous rlso. The fact that the snow
full on the hills Is unusually heavy
this year has led one of the old timet h who keep tab on conditions to predict etxra high water, but unless the
weather Is unpropltlous it is probable
the snow will pass off without any
trouble occurring.

MEANS MUCH   FOR NELSON.
The Miner had the pleasure of presenting to its readers yesterday an
official announcement regarding C. P.
K. plans in Kootenay which will contribute very materially to the prosperity of Nelson. Not only is it intended
to replace the present bridge st Kootenay crossing with a larger and more
substantial structure, but within a
very short time through trains will be
run from Nelson to Boundary points,
and this city made divison headquarters for nearly all the engine and
train crews. This, of course, means
that the permanent residential population will receive an immediate and
important increase, with the result
that a decided stimulus will be giv
en to local trade. The construction of
tbe new bridge at Kootenay Crossing
will entail heavy expenditures in supplies and material and the disbursement ot large sums in wages, Nelson
benefiting in this connection also to a
very considerable degree. We think
all will admit that the outlook for
this city during l'.iol is very promising indeed.	
CROW'S NEST SOUTHERN.
The settlement of thedifferei...s be
tween tbe C.P.K. and tho Crow's Nest
Pass coal company removes tbe last
obstacle which stood in the way of
the construction of the Clow's Nest
Southern railway. It has been known
for some time that negotiations looking to a settlement have been proceeding between the chief contending parties to the controversy ; and the very
fact that an arrangement of the kind
proposed waa considered possible by
the C. P. R. ought to have made it
apparent to those newspapers which
have been creating such a howl iu opposition to the charter that the
interests of tbe people were not placed
in jeopardy by the proposed construction of the road���that, in short, the
fight was one solely between rival corporations. But many of the newspa
pert which have been so bitterly an
tagonistic to the application for I
oharter, refused to take the tip whicli
was given them and now find themselves in a very unenviable position.
Tbe Crow's Nest people stoutly main
talned that the building of the line
would greatly benefit the country; the

square themselves as best they can
with those they attempted to deceive.
Held up by several of the great
powers, China has mustered sufficient
courage to defy Russia and refuse to
sign the Manchurian agreements.
The wily Bear's next more will be

The finances of Nova Scotia are

operations and the consequent inflation of the revenue from royalties.
den city pass u resolution condemning
the Cro.v's Nest Southern railway and
asking that a royal commission be
appointed to look into the effects of
tho granting of that charter. We can
easily tell .lohn und all his puppets
what the effects of the building of
that railway will be. One result will
be tbat it will enable the Crow's Nest
Pass Coal company to at once proceed
with development work which in a
very short time will enable them to
not only supply all home demands as
heretofore, but also supply the American markets to the south, thereby
bringing millions of dollars of good,
American gold into the country.
Among other results will be.a revenue
of about a thousand dollars a day to
the province; a population of 20,000
where there is now 2,000; a pay list
of eight or ten thousand dollars a day
where there is now fifteen hundred;
two or three big towns where there
is now only one small one; the erection of smelters and the cheapening of
fuel bo that low-grade ore which." cannot now be smelted will be placed on
a paying basis; and last, but not
least, the amount of business-done in
coal nnd coke would be so large that
tne sudden shutting off of the home
demands, such as happened about this
time last year, would Dot effect the
producers in any way. Oh, yes, JohD,
the effects will be quite numerous,
and all for the good of the province,
and had tbat memorable trip to Montreal Dot been arranged for, Nelson's
despotic ruler would bave been
amongst the first to see and proclaim
the justice and benefit of building of
such a railway and the securing of
such a market for the billions of tons
of coal .around Fernie.���Fernie Free

It seems probable tbat the Dominion government will refuse to legalise
the railway contracts entered into by
tbe Manitoba government. If one may
judge by the Winnipeg newspapeis
the feeling of opposition to the bargain is growing in the Prairie province.
Residents of East Kootenay���and for
that matter of the whole of British
Columbia���have legitimate cause for
rejoicing at the announcement that
all obstacles which impeded the construction of the Crow's Nest Southern
railway are in a fair way to being
removed.

Sir Wilfrid Laurier Sir Henri is the
most popular man in public life
Canada today. And he well deserves
his popularity. He Is a gentleman in
all that the word implies. Polished in
manner, highly educated, thoroughly
conversant with all current topics.and
possessing that charming grace of
speech and manner characteristic of
the eourtiers of olden times, it is a
treat to know Governor Joly and
spend a time in bis company. Though
a staunch Liberal, Sir Hum i has the
esteem and affection of politicians in
both the great federal parties. Upon
his appointment to tbe high office
which he now occupies a chorus of approval went np all over Canada at the
wisdom of the government's choice.
And on ooming to this province he
waa received with open arras, and
speedily endeared himself to all with
whom he came in contact. He is a
very charming old gentleman ; and his
acceptance of tbe gubernatorial chimin Hritish Columbia was all tbe more
welcome to Victoria because of the

The member for Nelson riding in
the local legislature is experiencing a
rather bard tun of luck these days.
He was not allowed to speak in defence of the argument against granting a charter for the Crow's Nest

undertaking has been ruled out of
order.
Count Tolstoi has heeu banished

Something seems radically wrong
with the manner in which the campaign is being conducted in South Africa. It is reported that the Boer gen
orals are mustering an army of 13,000
men. It is almost inconceivable that
the British generals, with the large
forces' which they have at their command, would be unable to prevent
such a mobilization.
That was a splendid April fool joke
which was played on tbe Montreal
lawyers who assembled at a railway
station in great numbers to meet a
mythical client from England. The
person who perpetrated the joke
should be tendered a vote of thanks
by the thousands in Canada whose
mirth will be exaited at reading an
account of the affair, As for the lawyers, they will be kept fairly busy
during the next few months answering tbe question: "When are you
leaving for Ottawa?"
In the telegram from Mr. S. S. Taylor which the Miner published yesterday tho interesting announcement Ib
inado that the Dominion government
bas determined upon the establishment of a bureau of mines. This Is
a very Impoitant step and is certain
to redound to the benefit of the min
Ing industiy of Canada. The federal
government has too long neglected
providing proper facilities for the conservation of one of the chief Industries of the country; and it is very
gratifying to note at last evlden.es
of a disposition to accord fairer treatment.

Significant   Announcement   Issued by
tbe Kossland   Mine Owners.
The   big mining companies   operating in Rossland   have   issued the appended address to theii employees:
"It being a matter of common report that a certain element in the
Bo-sland Minora' union is insisting
Upon the abrogation of the settlement
that was entered into a year ago at
tbe instance of Messrs. R. C. Clute
and Ralph Smith, we think it only
right to all concerned that we should
��tate at the earliest opportunity ottered, that if any action is taken by the
Miners' union looking to a change in
the existing labor conditions in this
camp, we, the undersigned, will have
no alternative bnt to close down our
amines and re-open only under a reduced scale of wages.
;B"The accumulating burdens that
havo been imposed upon the mining
Industry in this province are already
heavy to bear,and if those burdens are
increased it will be impossible to
operate these mines on a business
basis.
We have been struggling for a
g time past to put these mines on a
paying basis, and have been devising
all manner of ways and means for the
accomplishment of this end without
resorting to the reduction of wages.
���"Consequently, any further trouble
or expense to the companies nt this
time will leave no alternative but to
abandon our effort to maintain wages
at the old standard, and we will be
Compelled to adopt the long considered plan of reducing miners' wages to
|S per day, and muckers and unskilled surface labor to $3 per day.

Swears   Allegiance   to United   States
Under Amnesty Terms.
Washington, April ..���The war department today received information
from General McArthur that Aguinaldo had taken the oath of allegiance
to the United States under the
terms of amnesty offered by General
McArthur. The despatch conveying
this information contained much
more than was gi /en to the public.
The portion withheld related to the
future disposition of Aguinaldo and
made suggestions as to what the late
chief of the insurgents might accomplish. No official statement could be
obtained as to what finally would be
done with the prisoner, but it was
stated that he would be held for the
present, but would be granted all
possible immunity consistent with
existing conditions.
General McArthur lias hopes that a
great deal may be accomplished
through Aguinaldo. During the
time he has been prisoner he has
made quite a favorable impiession on
General McArthur. It has been suggested that under the terms of the notice of amnesty, the prisoner should
be set at liberty at once, but there
is a provision in the amnesty proclamation which says those who have violated the laws of war are excepted
from its terms. Whether or not Gen-
eral I..Arthur has satisfied himself
that Aguinaldo has not violated the
laws of war cannot be stated. Aguinaldo having been the head of the insurrection undoubtedly can be held
until further investigation is made
or until the circumstances which surround the situation in the Philippines, make it advisable to release
I him outright or otherwise dispose of
him.
tition. He said the total orders for
rails given to British makers in 1000
did not reach liO per cent, of the orders given during the preceding four
vears. Competition did not account
for the absolute decrease. Either
Icbs rails were required or buyers
were waiting in expectation of lower
prices.
NIGHT WAS  HEU TERROR.
"I would cough nearly all night
long," writes MrB. Chas. Applegate,
of Alexandria, Ind., "and could hardly get any sleep. I had consumption
so bad that if I walked a block I
would cough frightfully and spit
blood, but, when all other medicines
failed, three 81.00 bottles of Dr.
King's New Discovery wholly cured
me and I gained 58 pounds." It's absolutely guaranteed to cure Coughs,

Washington, April 2.���There are
at present about 57 V. S. naval vessels on the Asiatic station, a greater
number than ever has been mobil.
ized there aud including some of the
finest battleships, cruisers and iron
clads in the American navy. A good
many of them will now be sent home.
It is possible that the European
station with headquarters in the Mediterranean will be revived and also
that the re-creation of the old South
Pacific station, will follow.
There has been a marked shortage
of officers to fill assignments in this
country, owing to the drain that
came from China and tbe Philippines, so the home coming of so
many vessels will be welcome. The
Oregon and Newark, both of which
have been on service in the far east a
great while past are already setting
sail for the United States to be completely overhauled and repaired.

THE   LOCAL   MILLINERS   DID   A
BUSHING BUSINESS DURING
YESTERDAY.
RICH FEMININE  FANCIES SHOWN
AS OFFERINGS  FOR EASTEB
SEASON.
The weather man got over his dys-
petic spell early yesterday morning
and when the ladies of Nelson begun
to bestir themselves in preparation
for a visit to tbe millinery openings
the sun was sblning brightly, the
streets were rapidly drying and the
millinery men and women wore smiles
that betokened expectations of a good.
dnv'H business. And these expectations were fulfilled. There may hare
been some ladies who remained at
home (luring the afternoon, but there
were only a few. Certainly the great
majority of them were out. When
they got home, their husbands were
out���anywhere from $5 to 850, for it
costs money to buy a new spring bon-
nett.

in the store to be delivered later. It's
different with the lades, however.
They enjoy a week of joyful expectation of glances of admiration. They
visit the. millinery store, look over
all of the hats two or three times, finally decide to take this one, then
change their minds and take this
one. Then the dealer puts a "sold"
card on it and tlie purchaser goes
home. A day or two later the hat is
delivered. Then Easter Sunday comes.
If it is raining some of the more tender hearted ladies cry. Others roast the
servants, say mean things to the hus-i
band and children ami generally carry
on as though they had a veiy bad
night.    Of course they're  not   cranky

it rained, for they wanted so badly to
go to church. This is the durk side
of the picture. The bright side Is
made so by a cloudless sky, dry

are nothing but pleasant words for
the husband and the children. The
breakfast Is eaten with a relish.
Then comes an hour or two of dressing with many pleasant moments

endeavor to arouse the necessary measure of enthusiasm at another juncture. __  J

AMERICAN BRAINS.
Brain Workers Bequire Special Food.
Amciiciiii brain workers have for
some years past been largely using an
especially prepared food for rebuilding the gray matter and nerve centers. Any man or woman who cures
to make a test by using this food,
Grape-Nuts, tor a portion of one or
two meals each day, will find a distinct increase in vigor, and particularly in brain power.
Then If they feel dispose'* '. ' \ow
the reasons w'i" '.'��������� (!9u *"v��p
Orape Nuts analyzed, or take the analysis of the London Lancet and the
result will show that the food contains the natural phosphate of potash
obtained in a natural wuy from the
cereals, and albumen obtained in the
same way.
These two elements unite together
in the human body to make and rebuild the gray matter of which the
brain, solar plexus and neive centers
are filled.
These are scientific facts which can
be ascertained by any careful investigator. The food, Grape-Nuts, Is not
only tbe most scientifically made food
In the world, but almost any user
will agree with us that the flavor is
unique aud most winning.
CHAMBER SITTINGS���
