Ohio River Valley.
Cincinnati, April '."J.���The singe of

was II feet nnd rising al tlie rate uf
two inches tin hour, 'This will nienn
53 feet at ti o'clock tomorrow, when
trains will    he shut out of   the (Irani!
Central station, All of the railways
have made arrangements for receiving
and delivering freight at higher stations so there will he no Interruption
here either lo passengers or freight,
Owing to the Inability of   steamers to
uo under the bridges navigation on
Hie river is suspended, but it also ctm
be resumed on Thursday so far as the
present rise is concerned. Thu residents of the tenement houses along
(he Ohio river front were driven from
the lirst stories when the 'Ivor reached the stage of Hi feet laHt nii>ht.
The most hopeful fact is thnt the
Hood is unobstructed in the lower
Ohio anil there Is less backwater than
usual and that the trouble will be of
shoit duration. It ib settled now that
if a second rise from tlie Alegluiny region shall come it will overtake the
present How. So fur the damage heie
has been limited to lumbermen and
otheis located along the river front.
The endless line of shanty bunts and
other craft along the river front has
been swept away, but so I'm without
loss of life, The baseball path is located In Mill Creek valley aud will he

their homes. It is now believed that
the Newport race track will not be
flooded, although the races are proceeding under very sloppy coniliions.
At Huntingdon, West Virginia, tonight the Ohio is .VI inches, rising an
inch an hour. A steady rain fell today throughout the central and southern portions of the state. Most of the
tributaries of the Ohio are falling
slowly. At Muysville, Kentucky, the
liver reached S0.4 at 7 o'clock tonight
and was ris!ng two and a half inches
per hour.
I'ittsbiirg, Pa., Apiil 2:.'.���The Hood
is over. Notwithstanding the fact that
early in the day there was every evidence of a renewal of the high water,
the announcement can be mads authoritatively tonight that there is not
the least danger of another rise at
this point nor above for tbe present,
hut towns on the Ohio liver below
here are not yet out of danger because
of rains iu the valley lust night and
today, All up river points reported
the rain anil snow having ceased and

Important Amendment to the
Revenue Tax Bill Secured
by Curtis.
(SPECIAL TO THE JIINF.R.)
Victoria, II. C, April 2 .���A caucus
of the government supporters will be
held tonight when the railway policy
and the estimates will be submitted.
It is said that the government's revised policy includes the Coast-Kootenay and Island road, one hundred
miles of northern road from Kitiniaat
to llazelton, and a revival of the sub
sidy to the Ashcroft-Cariboo line.
Dissenters wish the company specified
whicli is to receive the first named
charter, and the government want to
have the awarding of it left to themselves, hence the disscntion in thego;-
ernment ranks.
In the house this afternoon a resolution brought iu by Curtis of
Rossland, was cm tied in committee
of the whole on the revenue tax. The
bill provides that when a man reaches
the age of sixty and his income does
not exceed one thousand dollars, be
shall be exempt fiom the poll tax.
The resolution was strongly supported
by Hawthornthwaite, labor represent
alive,who held that the provision was
good in the absence of old age pension, such us they have in New Zealand, and which be hoped some day to
see adopted in Hritish Columbia. Oa
the same bill unpaid taxes of employes
forming a lien on the property of employers was struck out. A motion to
give a discount of twenty per cent to
the man who paid his tax before
Mareh 1st was defeated. Nignt sessions coinmenco tomorrow night.

meen Star, entertained the members
of the press gallery at dinner tonight,
at which Eberts, tlreen, Uaiden and
Helmcken were also guests.
Two of the tiio were lately from
China and will be deported. The
third had been in the country for
some time and is held for abetting the
other two. En route to Nelson on

Berlin Police on the Qui Vive
For the Emissary of the
Plotters.
Berlin, April 32.��� With refeience to
the statements cabled from the United
States of a plot said to have been concerted against Emperor William and
oilier European rulers by anarchists in
Argentina and New Jersey, extreme
reticence is observed iu otlieial circles
in Berlin. After careful investigation,
however, a representative of the Associated Press ascertained in a reliable
quarter that the Berlin police presidency issued an order on April (ith foi
the arrest whenever or wherever
caught of the alleged anarchist, Uo-
dolfo Romagnoli, alias Romanlsso,
alias Langkwick Mueller. The order
simultaneously requested all Inland
and foreign authorilies to assist in
apprehending Romagnolio. Photographs of the alleged anarchist witli a
minute description by tbe llertillon
method were furnished for identification.
The information received by the
Berlin authorities was that Romagnolio had been formally chosen by the
alleged nest of conspirators in Pater-
sou, N. J., to murder Emperor William. They were furthermore informed that he left Buenos Ayres March
87th on board the North German Lloyd
steamer Halle for Bremen. Whether
this infoiuiatioi) is correct they have
no means of knowing. Hut since n
portion of it la.official they are inclined to give it credence,
Emperor William lias been advised
as to the situation and has issued
strict orders to tlie president of the
Berlin police, Huron Von Winilheiin
to keep him informed as to all similar
news but thut under no conditions is
the matter to be brought to the al
tcntion of the empress.
It is a fact that for some months
tbe Berlin police huve kept a very
close watch upon known anarchists in
the city and an unusually careful surveillance of arrivals known or suspected to be of anarchistic affiliations.
Antonio Porporello who was here
until a few days ago lied to llentheini
where lie wus arrested.
The Berlin authorities seem tu know
nothing about the alleged plots
against Emperor Nicholas and King
Victor Emmanuel.
tides as Hour is anil there is a world
wide market for them. Just as soon
as tbis country begins tu make inure
of them than can be consumed at
home they can be sent tu China, tu
Mexico, to South Africa, and other
countries where thtre is a waiting
market for them. All these results,
we believe, will follow tbe granting
of the bounty to tlie lead refineries.
It is true that the evolution uf the lend
manufacturing industries into the
condition outlined will take some
lime, but all recognize tins, that at
te same time they feel that a start
must be made and this eau be most
advantageously accomplished by the
granting uf the bounty.���Kossland

MONGOLIA QUIET.
London, April 23.���"According to
Russian advices," suys tlie St. Peters

BOUT  MAY  PROVE FATAL
THE    LEAD   BOUNTY.
The mining men who went from
here to Ottawa to urge the Federal
government to pay a bounty of S..1 a
ton on lead rained and refined in
Canada were given as courteous and
full a hearing us tlie importance of
the measure demanded, The government, after tbe interview, stated thai
as^ answer to the petition that the
minister of finance would soon give a
reply. It Is thought from thu tttti
tudu of the ministry and the fact
that u reply would bo made soon thut
the petition, us prayed for, would be
granted. It is an Important question
and one which, if the Dominion government is as favorable ns it is expected it will be toward it, will be solved
lo the best Interests of the silver-lend
people. The production of lead in
Canada last year, according to a report just issued by the Dominiu. government, wus ill,.ISO tons. The consumption of lead in Canada is about
111,00(1 tons in the shape of sheet lead,
lead pipe, litharge, etc., nnd nearly
all of this Is Imported fronrthe United
States. When the lead refineries tile
started no,I they will spring into existence just us soon as the bounty of
tf.1 per ton Is given by tbo Dominion
guvernment, most of the silver-lend
ores will be smelted al home,which in
itself will be a good thing for this
country, us the money sent abroad
for this will remain ut home, und, In
a short time all tbis cluss of ore will
be smelted ut home. Close on the
heels of the establishment of the lend
refineries will spring up also while
lead, lead pipe and other works ami it
will not he long before ull Hie products uf lcud which ore now brought
in from other countries will be manufactured ut home. When these industries are able lo supply the home
dc-iund they will be protected from
competition of foreign niiiile goods by
heavy    import   tuxes.    Il may he stud
thnt Canada produces mure lead than
she consumes.     While lend,  shut, lend

Press representative visited Emilio
Aguinaldo tins afternoon. Aguinaldo,
whose bearing wus courteous and
dignified, was dressed in white, looked well anil altogether made an excellent impression. He was rather reluctant to talk for publication and con-
sldered every question carefully before
answering, He said he was doing all
be could to ussist in the pacification
of the Philippines and expressed himself as surprised at what the ^Americans had accomplished.
When lie was lirst captured, be went
on to say, he was greatly astonished
to find thnt il majority of the Filipinos
entertained tlie opinion that American
sovereignly wns preferable to independence, but now he was inclined to
believe Hint way himself. He explained that since the dissolution of the insurgent congress and the declaration
of guerilla warfare the chiefs had
operated to nil intents and purposes
independently. They recognized bim
as commander in chief, sending bim
reports occasionally and he issued
some orders but for the last seven
mouths communication had been difficult and he hod almost been disconnected.
"I am now urging in the stiongest
possible manner," said Aguinaldo,
"Hint nil insurgents should surrender
nnd swear allegiance to the United
States.'' lie expressed the opinion
that Tinio, I ucbiiii, Malvur and othe-
representative insurgents will surien-
der as suou as they cou:e to understand tbe nature of the amnesty olfei-

New Zealand, and reiterated bit predilection for the day'labor system under proper supervision. People generally will be inclined to agree with

Province,
Mr. Justice Walkem has been ap-
pointed administrator of the government of Hritish Columbia, vice Chief
Justice McColl, and at the hitter's request.
The Miner accepts without hesitancy the explanation offered by Dr.
Pagan ri'gttiding quarantine matters
and regrets that there should have
been a inisiepresentation cf facts: hut
the reporter who wrote the utricle
complained of maintains that his Information was obtained from local
physicians.	
Within a very short time, no
doubt, active preparations will be
commenced nil over the Dominion
fur the reception to the fluke and
Duchess of York. Already a committee of sonic half dozen members of
the federal cabinet has been appointed
to.draw up ti programme, Beyond
the fact Hint I licit- Royal Highnesses
will arrive on or about September
JTth and will spend a month in the
country, of which at least a fortnight
will tie consumed in a trip to the coast,
very little has been settled with regard to the movements of the Royal
pan in the Dominion. IIis Excellency
the Governor-Oeneral will doubtless
accompany the Duke and Duchess
(luring their journey, and it is not improbable that a minister of the crown
may form one of the party. On the
occasion of the visit of the Prince uf
Wales, uow bis .Majesty the King, in
1800, Sir John Rose, the then finance
minister, hud the honor of travelling
with his royal highness, and a very
ooidial friendship was established between litem. Tlie Duke anil Duchess
are travelling witli a numerous party,
ho that the railway companies will
he called upon to make liberal provision in the matter of drawing room
cars and sleepers for such journeys as
may be required by railway. The
suite of their royal highnesses numbers about twenty, nnd in addition
there are no less than 20 servants,
The pi In ting and publishing business,which has been conducted for the
lust four years in Revelstoke by Mi.
A. Johnson, has been acquired by The
Revelstoke Herald I'ublshng Co., Limited, Liability, which will carry on
Ihe business under tbe same management as has heretofore conducted the
affairs of the paper.
Public opinion throughout the province appears tu he a unit in favor of
the constrnctlon of the Coast-Kootenay
railway by an independnt company.
The people aie also realizing the iin-
portnace of the Midway uud Vernon
road fiom a bnancial standpoint.
Governments do not always heed public opinion but with reference to those
two projects, it is so prononncedthat
it would mean political suicide for the
government to disregard it.���Greenwood Times.

HEAVY   INDEMNITIES.
The indemnity which it is reported
the powers will demand from .Una
is almost double tho amount the same
country had to pay to Japan ut the
close of Hie Chinese-Japanese war.
The total Indemnity that Japan obtained from China amounted to ��,'17,-
000,000, Japan's expenses in her war
witli the Celestial Empire were a little over ��0,000,000, so thut she obtain
ed ti profit ol nearly ��31,000,000. Tho
greatest war indemnity on record is
Hint whicli France paid to Germany
after the war of 1ST0. The wai cost
Germany about 8118,000,000, France
paid ��200,000,000 in cash, and, besides
tiiis, Germany took the provinces of
Alt-nee and Lorraine, valued at i'lil,-
0110,0(11): general goods valued ut ��10. -
000,000, nnd railway carriages and engines wortli another ��1,000,000, Germany also received .tl:.',(100,000 as Interest on the indemnity before it was
paid. The indemnity which Turkey
was to pay to Russia after the close of
the Russo-Turkish war wus settled,
after Russia had demanded over four
times tis much, at ��82,000,000. Turkey litis not yet paid the indemnity,
so that Russia is still unrecompensat-
ed foi her expenses in tlie war. Cuent
Britain spent 63,200,000 on ber war
with China of 1840-48, nnd obtained
nn Indemnity of ��4,200,000. In the war
between tlie same countries of 1857-00,
however, Great Britain spent ��7,000,
uno, and only demanded from China
the sum of ��1,750,000, part of the indemnity of s,01)0,000 taels going to
France,
Speaking of the Canadian ''linn
sard," the Montreal Witness says:
"We have tbe most efficient and probably the only correct and promptly
issued report of public debates published iu the world. " Canada's system is certainly unique. Every day
parlinment gets an exact reproduction
of its discussions of the day before.
For historical purposes, nnd foi the
necessities of tho future, in so far as
explaining tlie purpose of legislation
und the policy of public men, Hansard
is invaluable It supplies a want that
the newspapers cannot possibly cover.
"Tobacco smoke," suys Carlyle. "is
the one element in whicli. by out Eu
ropa-nn manners, men can sit silent
together without embarrassment, and
where no man is bound to speak one
word more than be litis actually and
veritable got to say. Nny, lathei
every mun is admonished and enjoined
by tbe laws of honor, and even of personal ease, to step short of that
point; and at all events to bold his
peuee and take his pipe again the instant he has spoken his meaning,if he
chance to have any. The results of
which salutary practice, if introduced
into the constitutional parliaments,
might evidently be incalculable."
CURRENT COMMENT
QUESTION ANSWERED.
Yes,August Flower still has the largest sale of uny medicine in the civilized world. Your mothers and grandmothers never thought uf using anything else for Indigestion or biliousness. Doctors were scarce, and they
seldom heard of Appendicitis, Nervous
Prostration or Heart fa"ure, etc.
They used August Flower to clean out
the system and stop fermentation of
undigested food, regulate the action
of the system, and tbat is all they
took when feeling dull and had 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.

('ii.N'TI.A'T (111 DAY  LABOR,
A brief hut interesting discussion on
the relative advantages of the contract
und dny labor systems in connection
with government work took place recently in tbo house of commons. In
reply to some remarks by Mr. Clancy
upon tne desirability of doing government work by contract Mr. Tarte said
thut if the contract system weie
adopted the contractor would only
huve to make his profit out of the
work, nnd the government might as
well be its own contractor, and the
work would be dime cheaper by the
day-labor system, where the government had a gocd foreman to supervise
the work. Mr. Cluney said the logical
conclusion of Mr. Tartu's argument
would bo thnt nil government work
would be done by dny labor, No ten
men would say that where n Dumber
of men Were employed on the construe-
THE   CHOW'S   NEST   SOUTHERN
The Crow's Nest Southern bill has
passed the railway committee of parliament after an agreement hud heen
reached witli the government that
will in the opinion of the committee
and the government, fully safeguard
the smelting Interests in this province.
The care that has heen tiken in litis
mattei is very commendable and indicates a determination upon the part of
tli Laurier governnint not to allow
any great railway combination in the
United States to acquire powers granted to railways in Canada to tlie de'ri-
ment of Canadian intei ests. At present the Crow's Nest Southern is independent of any railway combine, and
we may accept the statement of its
promoters that they intend to keep it
independent,but no one can guarantee
tbis. Hence it became necessary to
provide against tlie possibility of the
line going out of their control and being used to tlie disadvantage of Can-
tula, It is probably true enough that
the promoters of the company and tho
Crow'H Nest Coal company would not
have the least desire to do anything
that would work an injury to Canada.
Tbey are gentlemen with huge interests in the Dominion. It is for
their own best welfnre that the mining industry in Kootenay should prosper. Hut as we bave said in discussing tbe general proposition of trusts,
it is never possiblo lo tell into whose
hands the stock of companies may
come, and it is therefore necessary to
guard against all; eventualities.���Victoria Colonist.

QUARANTINE   MATTERS.
To the Editor, ���My attention has
heen called to your issue of April 9th,
in which appears a sharp criticism of
my advice regarding the quarantine
established hy Nelson against other
parts of the piovinie. I tliink, sir,
When you have the facts, you nil! be
generous enough to admit tint! the
.stand I took was the correct one from
a medical standpoint, nnd in the best
interests of all. fiom a commercial
aspect. 1 had consultation with Mayor
Fletcher and Dr. Symonds on March
30th, and we discussed the Nelson
quarantine regulations. I pointed out
the absurdity of demanding n medical
certificate, stating that "he or she
has not been in any place or building
infected with small pox, etc." How
could any medical man give such a
certificate? And if he did, what would
he the value of such? Even the
baggage, the certifying doctor must
vouch for its freedom from dangerous
proximity to infceled districts." I advised that the Nelson inspector ask
such questions and act as he thought
best according to the answer.
Again, I objected to the demand for
a certificate of successful vaccination
since January 1(11)1���such demands
only brinij our regulations into ridicule nnd almost compel medical men
to grant valueless certificates. People
will not be convinced that yearly vaccination is necessary.
I furthermore pointed out that the
demand for mail fumigation was not
wise, inasmuch as it only gave a false
sense of security, for it must be evident to all,that the facilities for fumigation at small places are inadequate
and that the fumigation of the collective mail could easily be carried out
either on the Kootenay boat or at Nelson.
I then told the mayor and acting
health officer what the province was
doing wherever infection spread. That
all cases were isolated and all known
to come in contact with same, quarantined-1 instanced the cases at
Moyie and Cranbrook. The Moyie
ease developed at St. Eugene mine���
the ease was placed in the pest house
and all the mine workers wero quarantined for sixteen days. The Cranbrook case waa discovered at the St.
Eugene hospital���this case was placed
in the pest house, and the hospital,
and all in it, was quarantined for sixteen days���I expressed the opinion
that with such action it was unnecessary for Nelson to be so alarmed.
Regarding Phoenix, we not only
took precautions similar to above and
quarantined sixty-five men, but moreover had Dr. Boucher to inspect the
train each day before it left.
Bertram's case is quite easily explained and I refuse to believe the :.-
port in The Miner when it says:
"The medical health olllcer. are disposed to criticize the actions of tlie
provincial health authorities in regard
to the situation at Phoenix in tlie severest terms. The charge is made
that the provincial authorities were
influenced by the mining companies
interested to raise the quarantine at
Phoenix before the dangerous period
had passed; and in support of the
charge the fact Is instanced that within a day or two of the raising of the
quaran.ine three cases were discovered at Phoenix, and that others, such
as Heitram ease, are likely to be moving through the country."
I don't believe the medical health
officers said anything of the kind as I
know they are neither ignorant nor
unjust. They would be ignorant if
Itiey said that sixteen days' quarantine was an absolute surety that smallpox could not develop later, and they
would be unjust if they said the provincial health authorities were influenced by the mining companies.
Tho usual time for quarantine is
fourteen days and this is tho time
the Ontario board of health orders���
our legulatious call for sixteen days,
so as to ensure greater safety, but
cases will occur which take longer-
even up to 21 days���surely the Nelson
health officers do not propose to hold
me lesponsible for such delays in tho
incubation of the disease? Bertram's
waB evidently a case of this kind, not
many such occur, but when they do,
r.o provision will protect against
then). The man Bertram was quarantined us a suspect for sixteen days.
He was vaccinated, like all the other
suspects, but his vaccination dH not
"take." He was not re-vaiciliated
because he was suffering from an attack of pleurisy and moreover was recently vaccinated. He. with all the
others, was disinfected and liberated
on thu sixteenth day (April 4th). On
April 'ith   he   left  Phoenix and   was
A CORRECTION.
To the Editor,���Among the tele-
graphic news in a recent issue of the
Daily Miller was an item from Toronto stating that the Rev. Dr. Potts had
been voted $10,00(1 for his services in
connection with the rnisintr of the
Twentieth Century Thanksgiving fund
by the Methodist church in Canada.
I stiongly suspected the accuracy of
the report and am now able to give
you the facts. When the books were
[closed a few weeks ago the fund
amounted to twelve hundred thousand
dollars. The collection occupied a
period of nearly two years aud involved an immense amount of labor which
might well have taken all the time of
a stiong man. This great work was
undertaken by Dr. Potts without fee
or reward of any kind iu addition to
his heavy responsibilities as general
secretary of education. As a result
his health has been much impaired.
In order to allow him to take a period of complete rest, and as an expression of gratitude for valuable services
freely rendered, the board voted him
an honorarium of one thousand
dollars.

KOOTENAY RESIDENCES.
To the Editor,���I notice in today's
issue of The Miner that yon refer to
the residence which is being built for
Captain Busk, at Koknnee creek, as
being hy all odds the finest residence
on Kootenay lake, outside of Nelson.
Please allow me to differ. There is a
residence in Kaslo, owned by II. (Jieg-
erioln which not only eclipses the one
being built for Captain Husk, but has
no equal, as a private residence, on
the mainland of British Columbia,outside of not only Nelson, but Vancouver; and I question very much if even
there. P. M'GBEQOB.
