Compact That Would Be Likely to Pass the U. S.
Senate.
!/
London, May 21.���Tht draft of Secretary Hay's proposals for a new Nicaraguan treaty was received from
Lord Pauncefote by the last mail. It
ie a voluminous document and is being
^ printed previous to examination and
discussion. It is described as a re-
di aft of the Ilay-Pauncefoto treaty,
with what appears from a casual perusal to be extensive annotations.
Several weeks are likely to elapse before the cabinet can commence its
preliminary discussion.
The dispatches relative to thc possibility of.the substitute of a Panama
isthmian route are read with Interest In Downing street. It is assorted
that agents of tbe Panama company
have not approached thc Hritish government, but if the United States
Bhould think it advisable to complete
the Panama canal thc decision would
be hailed with intense satisfaction at
the foreign office as being an easy
way out of the present controversy.
"If it is advisable to abrogate the
Clavton-Bulwcr treaty on account of
its being out of dote," said a high
official, "how much more is it necessary to annul the French shore agreement,which was made long before the
Clayton-Bulwer treaty and which has
been a millstone around the neck of
Newfoundland."
Inquiries /reveal tho fact that negotiations to this latter condition arc
progressing, though slowly. Por
the first time in recent negotiations
France is said to be exhibiting a gun-
nine desire to havo the matter sett led :
and though, perhaps, at the expenre
of concessions in other parts of the
globe, Great Britain will endeavor to
meet her wishes.
The result of thc conference between
Mr.Bond, premier of Newfoundland,
artd Sir Wilfrid Laurier, premier of
Canada, regarding reciprocity with
th. United States has not yet been
communicated to the colonial office,
though Colonial Secretary Chamberlain sincerely hopes that tho reports
of Canada's assent to Mr. Bond's proposition are correct. With regard to
China, which, with the c ception of
the foregoing is the only foreign matter engaging the government's attention, It is still hoped in Downing
street thnt Great Britain and America
will be able to effect the reduction of
the indemnity. The German objections
continue to form the chief obstacle to
this end. The affair of the tug Ewo,
which was fired on at Tien Tsin May
4, by some German soldiers guarding
a bridge across the Pei no, and of
which the;. Times complained lately,
has not yet been reported to the foreign office, and so far remains a purely local matter, no replies or inquiries
having p~ssed between London and
Berlin, to the absence of official information th* press accounts of the
affnir do not tend to diminish the
slight fraction which exists between
Germany.and Great Britain over the
Far Eastern polioy.
An important development in the
National Federation of Employers' association and trades' unions occurred
this week, when labor leaders, members of the houBe of commons and employers met in London to discuss the
details of the organization, It will
be remembered, that the movement
ha. its Inception through the keenness
of American competition. Among
those present at the meeting were
two members of the house of commons, Charles Bill, Conservative, and
Hugh Crawford Smith, Liberal Union-
lit ;' representatives of the miners,
boilermakers, shipbuilders, lithographers, and other unions, ard several shipbuilders and factory owners
John Lockie, the well known student of labor problems snd founder of
the Hational federation, announced
tbat forty organized labor bodies had
expressed their willingness to join.

FOR PLANTS AT PHOENIX.
Jay P. Graves and Associates Ask For
a 25 Year Franchise.
Phoenix, B. C, May 21.���A syndicate including Juy P. Graves, A. C.
Flumerfelt and W. Yelen Williamr,
through its solicitor G. Q, S. llelstei-
man, has submitted to tbo Phoenix
city council a proposition for installing water and electric light systems
in Phoenix. A 25 years' franchise
with the privilege of renewing It for
two terms of 10 years each is sought
The city council is also given tl e
right to purcliaso the proposed systems at the end of cither of these
torms. Tho syndicate on its part
agrees to furnish water and light according to certain schedules of prices.
The oiler is now under  consideration.
Tlio water supply of Phoenix is altogether insullicient for fire protection. The tapid growth of population
ma'<es the installation of a new system imperative. If an agreement is
reached the syndicate will begin operations at once.

DANCE AT THE QUEENP-
A Miner reporter stepped into the
Queen's last evening on his last round
up for the day, and arrived just in
time for the lunch which the hostess
of the hotel, Mrs. Clark, was serving
out to a few of her invited guests who
were spending thc evening in a social
dance. There were about forty nou
pics and the time passed nil too
pleasantly.
ROBIIED THE CniEF-
Thc chief of police hasboen relieved
of Borao of his attire during the last
few days; by somo of the ones he has
been accommodating with board and
lodgings at the city's expense. Probably they only wished to have some
talisman of their city friend and
manifested it in that manner.
LAKE STILL RI8ING-

has risen two feet, at the rate of six
inches per day, and is now 12 feet
above its normal level nnd only two
feet above last year's high wjater
mark.
Bounty Begins on July 1st,
1902. and Runs for Five
Years.
(SPECIAL TO THE MINER.)
Ottawa, Mny 21.���Mr. (Fielding introduced a resolution giving a bounty
of 85 per ton on lead; refined in Canada. He explained the conditions
which caused the necessity of this in
British Columbia. The Canadian lead
industry had reached a point when it
was found necessary to do something
to save this business to the country
and prevent Its being concentrated in
the United StateB. Thc bounty would
not exceed 8100,000 in any one year,
Mr. Fielding changed his resolution
so that the bounty should begin on
July 1st, 18112, instead of January 1st
1002. This was.done because it is understood that a refinery cannot be
built and got ready for operation be
fore July 1st, 1002, and it is. desirable
thut the industry should have a full
benefit of the five years bounty.
The resol-tion was passed and a
bill based   upon   it   waB   introduced.
MILITIA ORDER.
(SPECIAL TO THE MINER.)
Ottawa, May 21.���The following
militiu order was issued today: "District officers commanding and commanding officers of units aro reminded that by the King's command all
military forces of the empire are still
in deep mourning for hor late gracious majesty, Queen Victoria, and
that such mourning does not expire
until the 24th of July. In those circumstances ceremonial display such a
salutes,feu de joi, trooping the colors,
reviews and other military exercises,
except sui'li as are for tactical instruction or for rifle practice, would be an
act of serious disrespect to the memory of our late beloved sovereign."
DIED   OF  SMALLPOX.
(SPECIAL TO THE MINER.)
Toronto, May 21.���Dr. Bryce was
advised today of the death of one of
thc smallpox patients in the pest
house at Sault Ste Marie. This Is only
the sixth death in Ontario during the
present outbreak. Two families hove

Strathcona's Horse; is making arrangements to leave for South Africa,

QUARANTINE
DISCUSSED
The Matter Again Game Up
Before the City Council
Last Night.
Mayor Says the Doctors Are
Trying to Shift Responsibility.
The city council had its regular
meeting last evening in tho council
chamber the mayor and all the aldermen being piesent.
, The matter which caused st much
discussion at the previous meeting
was again uppermost, and originated
hy n cominnnicution from Jesse Graham making an appeal to thc council
for information as to the cause of his
home being quarantined. Dr. Hall
had reported them as a case of suspected fever,and the health officer had
quarantined them at once with the
assurance that the same would be lifted when the attendant physician declared the cases as not  infectious.
Tho mayor explained that in consultation with the health officer, that
the latter had signified his intention
to remove the quarantine when Dr.
Hall reported favorably and was waiting for report. The mayor stated that
all they could dp in the matter was
to refer them back to the health officer who would not remove the quarantine until he received a certificate
from the attendant physician. The
mayor remarked that it looked as if
the city doctors were trying to shift
the responsibility on to^the city, but
claimed that it was the duty of every
doctor in the city by law to report
the eases definitely to health officer or
abide by the consequences. He wan t-
ed to know why the doctors did not
come out flat footed and make their
charges.
Mr. Hamilton said if Dr. nail found
thorc was no lever why did lie not say
so, and have tho quaratine removed,
but report it to the contrary if not so.
Another matter which came up
was the appoint ,nent. of a new pound-
keeper. Aldermen thought they might
get a good smart boy who would do
as well as the one they had. After
some further discussion it was finally
agreed to leave the matter of discharging the present ponndkeeper and ap-'
pointing   li new,one wit'.i the   mayor.
The finance committee recommended
the payment ' of accounts to the
amount of $1,050.48 and an order was
drawn on the treassury for the
amounts.
The board of works reported that
all the verandahs and hanging signs
had been removed except the one at
the Madduh'hoiise and explained that
the time^llowed was thirty days Instead o. sixty as wus represented by
the parties interested.
Tenders for the supply of 7,000 feet
of wire, and two telephones were received from the Kootenay Electric
Supply Co, for 81185.6, and from Ewart
Bros. & Ringrose for 8307.31. Tbe
former being the lower tender was accepted.
Another communication was received from Mr. Friel of Regina, who is
negotiating with the conncil ifor the
erection of a g.-ist mill. He inplained
that he had been delayed.In his reply
to their last communication owing
to the fact that he had |e|n negotiating with thc C. P. R. enteral freight
oflice for an arrangement of rates on
wheat nnd other grains from the
northwest to Nelson, and expected
to be in tbe city about Jnne 5, when
he hoped to be able to arrange a satis-
factory deal whereby he could proceed
with the erection cf the mill and the
placing of tbe order at once.
A communication was received from
Emmet C. Brown, on behalf of B. C.
Riblet, complaining of the unsanitary
condition of lots adjoining his property
arising from stagnant water, stable
refuse, Chinamen's wuBhouacs and
chicken ranches. Aid. Selous remarked that in the cup-like basin in that
vicinity the water was a bright green,
and complained of the fact that attempts had been made to clean up that
district yet nothing hod been done.
The matter was finally referred to the
city engineer.
An pplicatlon was made by
Shacklcton and Simpson for specia
water power rates to run their marble works. At the present   time   they
only required throe horse power but
Would later require ten additional
|horse power. The matter after being
discussed with Ihe city engineer was
referred to the mayor and engineer.
An nppeiil was made by Thorpe &
Co.'s soda water factory for a reduction of their water rates Whioh they
claimed was double the amount they
had to pay In Vancouver. After some
discussion it was elicited that they
were only paying the same ns the lintels and other firms of thc same character nnd their petition wob not
granted.
Gaable A O'Reilly notified the
couneil on behalf of F.C. Ennis,respecting damage done to his piopcrty near
the electric light dam. The communication wns received and   filed.
Regarding the matter brought up at.
thc last meeting respecting increased
vault accommodation, t'je council decided to build ono on the soutli side
of the city hall and behind the firo
hall, and invite tenders for tlio name.
It was also agreed to kalsominc the
walls of tbo city offices a" they havo
had nothing done to them since their
erection.
A new bylaw, No Oil, was introduced, copies of; which were placed in
the hands of the council and will bo
discussed at the next meeting.
The following recommendations
were mado by the public works committee and approved by the full council: The alley way between Robson
and Gore street, bo made passable for
teams. The alleyway from Stanley In
Kootenay, block 13, to bi opened up.

gorge eight feet wide and four feet
deep and was threatening to wash
away hiB house. The mntter was referred to the city engineer to look

STEVEDORES'
BIG COMBINE
Puget Sound and British C_-
'      lumbla Firms to Consolidate.
VICTORIA NEWS.
(SPECIAL TO THE MINER.)
Victoria, B. C, May 21.���A crisis
Is expected to be reached between the
stevedores and longshoreracns' union
upon the arrival of incoming Oriental
liners, the Idsuini Maru and Olympia.
The former is now due and the latter
is expected tomorrow, lloth tic. e
ships are discharged on the American side by non union stevedores, thc
rate of wages has been 40 cents an
hour, and tbe men are now asking 00
cents.
At a meeting of tho reception com-
mltteo for the 24th of May colebration
today Mayor Haywood announced that
he would not have liquors in his reception marque on the day of thc regatta.
The schooner rigged yacht Pelican,
with J. C. Vojs and N. K. Luxton on
board, cleared for Tahiti this morning. They intend to sail to London.
Voss attempted a similar trip in tho
Xurii, the adventures of which are
familiar to the B. C. press.
WATCHING THE STRIKE.
(SPECIAL TO THE .11151:11.)
Toronto, May 21.���The progress of
the machinist's strike in thc United
Statos Is being closely watched by
men engaged In the same trade here,
a majority of whom belong to the union. A number of the machinists' believe thntlf the- stiika.rs in the United
States secure a nine hour day It will
be obtained in Toronto and elsewhere without trouble.
San Francisco and Portland
Are to Gome Into the
Scheme.
(SPECIAL TO THE MINER.)
Vaneoiiver.il. C, May 21.���Preliminary steps were taken yesterday tending towards the organization of all tho
stovedore interests on Puget Sound
and in liritisli Columbia under one
head or trust, to control the business
ii." loading and unloading ships at Tail ~na, Seattle, Everett, Whatcom
and other points on the Hound, and
Victoria and Vancouver, 11. C.
The combine is to be directly connected wilh ono of the largust stevedore firms at San Francisco, and, la
fact, In tin on it is the intention to pei-
feet the same kind of an organization
at the California port nnd at Portland, and associate them with tho
Nor.h Pacific coast trust.
The head of the movement is n
woll known San Francisco stevedore,
who has been iu Vuncouver for the
past several days. Tho object of bin
mission has been kept quiet, and It
was thojiopo that it would not become
publio for several days yet. However, during yesterday afternoon it
leaked out on the water front.
All the plans have been peifected,
and within a few days at most the
trust will he a reality.
The present is the most gigantic
plan in this connection that has ever
been attempted, so far as known
among any of the local shipping men.
Tho capital stock of thc new com-
nine will be large and will be taken
up by tho firms in the parts of the
country it is the intention to organ-
ice in proportion tu the amount for
whicli their business is taken in for.
At least the tour points named on Puget aSound will be included In the
present organization and the tiro
Hritish Columbia points. There is to
be one head offlcc'of the new corporation, and in all probability it will be
located on the Sound, However, it
is stated that all the details have nut
li -eii completed, and uutil they are
there can bu no official announcement
from what city the compuny will
operate. Just as soon as all the
plans for the North Pacific coast have
been perfected the promoter of thu
scheme will return to San Francisco,
and then, it is stated, tbe work of
bringing the San Francisco stevedores
under control of tbe tiust will be b.--
gun.
The next movement will bo at Portland, and the opinion is expressed
that before many weeks have passed
all , he principal stevedore drain of the
Pacific const will be included.
As to the effect of this new organization there in no one who is lu a position to toli. Should It be that it Is the
object of tbe corporation to reduce
expenses by conLolldatlon, and nutting more, then there will be little effect. However, If onoe in control of
the business of loading and unloading
sliips on the Pacific coast, and It is
the Intention of the combine to Increase prices for work, the org_vi_a-
tion will have a deep meaning at
ovory port in tho territory affected,
so far as the expense iu removing csi-
gouB is concerned.
It Is intimated that one of the real
objects of the oiganfzatlem is to be
able to treat with strikes and labor
troubles that within the past two
years havo been numerous at all thc
discharging and loading ports on tbe
Pacific eoast. It Is stated that with
an organization, perfected, whereby
all the principal stevedore firms aro
under one head, a settlement of any
difficulty that may come up will be
much easier than if many firms have
to be treated with.
The details of the Hound and British Columbia combine, it Is stated,
will be concluded thc first of the present week.

A GREAT POTHER.
An organ devoted heart and soul to
its wont���and must of them are���can
see in any matter subject for political
capital. All that is required is in-
genuty to give it tho necessary twist.
Often queer choices nre made, and_one
of the strangest is also one of the
latest. It is nothing less than the
statue of Sir John Macdonald that
stands in front of tho Legislative
buildings in Toronto. The Ontario
Government have arranged to erect a
statue in.memory of her Iste Majesty.
It is to be a Provincial affair, nnd
the Government are anxious to select
the best possible Kite. Forty years
age, when his present Majesty visited
Toronto, a site was selected, and in a
manner dedicated, for a statue to the
Queen which was then ir. contemplation. The movement, however, fell
through, and the site chosen reverted
to the city. This was the site selected for the Mncdonald statue. It is
the choicest and mosl conspicuous in
Toronto. Now that a statue to the
Queen is really to be erected, it is
thought that the least that can he
done In honor of her memory is to select the choicest si to. The Premier
of the Government, Mr. Geo. W.
Ross, has put in a request to the city
authoritis to remove the Macdonald
statue, in order that thc Provincial
monument to her late Majesty may
have the   place of honor.
Mr. Ross is neither the wisest nor
the greatest of men. He is a politician merely, and ull his life has been
recognized as an extreme partisan.
But there is no evidence whatever
that in this matter he has been
actuated by any other desire than to
do fitting honor to tho memory of thc
Queen. The organs on the other side,
however, will not believe this. They
see in his request to the citv corpora,
tion a deliberate design to slap the
cheek of the Conservative party
through this Act of disrespect to ils
Chieftain. Therefore thoy are up in
arms against the proposal. To remove the statue would be desecration.
There are other sites for that to
her Majesty, a plenty of tbein. Let
it be tnken to Victoria Square, and set
up In front of the city buildings, but
in any case leave the Chieftain's
statue alone. For wus he not the
father of his country, as much as
Washington was of the United States?
And so the battle rages. What mon-
stions shapes this allege I sacrilege
will take before the excitement subsides it would be impossible to guess.
In the end reason will have its
way, and all concerned with it will
cheerfully consent to the removal of
the Maedonnld statue. One Conservative member for the city has had the
good sense to suggest that if living
Sir John would himself be the first to
agree to the change. If there is a
place of honor at all, it is certainly
due to the good Queen whom Canadians hold in loving memory above all
others. Wc h��ve no reason to suppose thnt any other thought but this
occurred to Mr. Boss and his colleagues, when they decided to_apply to
the city authorities to permit the
Queen's statue to stand in thnt, conspicuous spot in front of Ontario's
Parliament buildings.

LOOKING    AFTER    THEMSELVES.
Members never wanted for an excuse when thoy made claim to an increase of indemnity. At Ottawa there
is to be an increase all round. They
have been getting a thousjind for the
session, witli mileage, since Confederation, but now this is to he increased
to fifteen hundred. The excuse in this
case is that conditions have changed
since the former indemnity was fixed.
It Is more expensive to live now than
it   was   twenty-five   or   thirty   years
where they get five thousand dollars.
Therefore let us vote ourselves fifteen hundred at least.
It is true that conditions have
changed, but those conditions affect,
others besides members and Senators
at Ottawa. Increased cost of living
is not peculiar to them alone. Members of the Civil Service aro getting
tho salaries that were fixed as long
ago as the old indemnity, and they
are equally affected by the changed
conditions. It does not appear to have
occurred to members that they, too,
are entitled to some consideration.
Almost simultaneously with the announcement that the indemnity was
to be increased, notice was given that
an additional Judge was to be appointed at Vancouver, nt a salary of
83,400. Consider this for a moment.
A member of Parliament at Ottawa
requires 81,500 to meet his expenses
for three or four months, while a
Judge at Vancouver, a much more expensive placo than Ottawa, is to keep
himself und family ull the year round
and maintain the dignity of the Heneh
on 82,400! Thc member may or may
not be of use, may or may not have
education enough to write a simple
letter,but the Judge must be a man of
learning and refinement, skilled in
the law, and with ability to interpret
it intelligibly. He has his pittance
of two hundred dollars a month,
while the member is given five hundred a month for his hotel expenses
at Ottawa.
Ii wa�� never intended that Canadian
members of Parliament should be paid
a salary. Onr theory is thnt they
shall be reimbursed necessary expenses while engaged In their dut.es
at the Capital. In Great llritain,
which we take as our pattern in nil
things parliamentary,not even this is
done; but there they have rich men
who can afford thc expense, while
in Canada it was recognized that if we
had to depend on the rich we should
have slim Parliaments. Hence the indemnity. As a people we a-_ getting
very extravagant in our habits if a
thousand dollars are not enough to
pay one's hotel bill for three or four
months. If more is needed, however,
the country will not begrudge it, but
it would give with better heart if
members showed that they wero as
mindful of others as of themselves.
As long as Judges' salaries remain as
they are this increased indemnity will
be a reproa.li to tne Canadian Parliament.
not know that the decision, if unfavorable to the Province, will affect
conditions hero; but If something
should arise to sweep away tlie mineral tax in Hritish Columbia, our Legislature might he induced to consider
more deliberately than it has yet done
whether there Is not a bettei way to
encourage mineial development than
to tax it.
A London cable says that negotiations looking to the settlement of the
vexed Fiench Shore question in Newfoundland are actually making progress. It is thought that France will
nbandon her claims In return for eon-
cessions in some other part of the
world. The claims in question are a
monstrous exaggeration of the terms
of the treaty of Utrecht, and if it
were not. for Great Tiritain'B reverence
for treaty obliagtions it would have
been denounced long ago.

There is renewed activity in the
South Africa mining fields, and The
Spokane Review takes it to mean a revival of the mining industry in the
camps of Hritish Columbia. This is
a gratifying view of it, and perhaps a
correct one; hut the more general
impression is Ihut the uctivity which
is showing itself will distract attention from mining operations in this
Province. The Review adds: "The
Hriti.h investor, frightened into his
shell by the Transvaal wur, cut loose
from nearly all mining connections,
no matter in what, quarter of the
globe, but he will come out again und
start, the wheels of the now idle hoists
as soon ns revenue flows in from the
Johannesburg.rcefs. The news from
South Africa that Johunnesburg mines
are reopening therefore is good news
for this section."
A GOOD THING.
German Syrup is tbe special prescription of Dr. A. Boschree, a celebrated German Physician, and Ib acknowledged to be one of the most fortunate discoveries in Medicine. It
quickly cures Coughs, Colds and all
Lung troubles of the stverest nature,
removing as it does- the cause of tbe
a Heel i.111 and leaving the parts in a
strong and healthy condition. It Is not
an experimental medicine, but has
stood the test of years, giving satisfaction in every case, which its
rapidly increasing sale every season
confirms. Two million bottles sold
nnnuiilly. Boschree's German Syrup
was introduced in the United States in
1SI18, and is now sold in every town

"Halloa!  Old Fellow!
" How are you? What time have
you got? By Jove! My watch is
stopped!    It is always stopping,"
"Very sorry, my dear It-Mow, but
I'll tell you what to do if you want
to have no more trouble with your
watch. Take it to Patenaude Bros.
They'll do the rest."
We have just added to our watch
repairing department a first-class
watchmaker, Mr. G. Gendrow, a
graduate of the Canadian Horolog-
ical Institute and the maker of a
fine pocket chronometer.
