CHARMED A
BIG AUDIENCE
Nklson,   British Columbia, Tuesday,  April 16, 1901.
Eleventh  Year
Dm
Mme. Albani and Her Great
Company at the Nelson
Opera House.
Most Notable Musical Event
In the History of the
City.
Albani has come and gone. Albani
���the far-famed songstress who has delighted the hearts of thousands in all
lands���Albani, wbo has had princes at
her feet and received the homage
which royalty pays to merit on all oc>
casions, has visited Nelson and left
behind her n delightful memory of the
most notable and brilliant achievement which the people of the Queen
City of the Kootenays have been privileged to enjoy in the history of the
eity.
tlie star has surrounded herself
with assisting entertainers no less capable than herself. They are all
artistes of rare ability and their
efforts yesterday evening proved conclusively that the high reputation
wbich they all enjoy is well earned.
The opera bouse was crowded to
the doors with an audience representative of the - culture and fashion of
Nelson, and from the first note struck
by the accompanist until the concluding strains of "God Save the Ring,"
had died; a way the. building rang with
the plaudits of the assemblage in manifestation of approval at the success of
what must be ^termed the greatest
musical event in the history of Nelson.
Most of those present had heard Albani sing before, but hardly ever to,
better advantage. If the destroyer ol
all things, Time, has been at work
on her wonderful gift,it was not apparent to those who were delighted by
the wonderful songstress yesterday
evening. Her voice seems as sweet
and clear as ever, her manner as
charming, her ability quite as great���
she is still the Albani of the olden
days.
The programme was as follows:
Duet���"Andante and Finale" from
E Minor Concerto, ^(Mendelssohn),
(violin and piano), Mens. Tivadar
Nanchez   and Mr: Watkis.
Song ���"I Cannot Help Loving
Thee" (Clayton Johns), Mr. Douglas
Pdwell.
, Sons���(a) "the Rose," (b) "The
River and,the Sea," (Noel .Johnson),
Miss Muriel Foster.
Solo, flute���"Fantasie Sur La
Joive," (Halevy.'Mons. F. Ilrossa.)
Alr*-"Ah Fora'e Lui,'. (Traviata,
Verdi'), Madame Albani.
Solo,, violin���"fyegende,"   (Wienia-
wski), Mons. Tivadar Nachez.
'Suet���"D'un'  coeur   qui   t'aime,"
(Gounod),   Madame Albani and   Miss
Foster.
Songs��� (a)"At the Mid Hour of
Night," (Cowan), (b) "A May Morning,' (Denza), Mr. Douglas Powell.
Air���"Sweet Bird,' (Handel), Madame Albani, flute obligato, Mons.
Broa.a.
Songs���(a.) "When the Stars were
Young," (Paul Rubens), (b) "Love
the Pedlar," (Ed. German), Miss
Muriel Foster.
Violin Solo���"Scene do In, Czarda,"
(Hubay), Mons Tivadar Naehez.
Songs���(a) "What Does Little
Birdie Say?" (Macken-ie), (b) "Vocal
Waltz; Rosebuds," (Arditi), Madame
Albani.
Duet.���"The Lover and His Lass"
(Walthevv), Miss Foster and. Mr. Powell.
"GOD SAVE THE KING,"
Madame   Albani,     Miss   Foster  and
Mr.   Powell.
It would bo futile to attempt a crit-
iciBiu of the various numbers���suffice
to say that all which had been stated
in |tlie eulogistic advance notices
which appeared was amply warranted.
Each number was a gem. Encores
were'vociferously demanded, gracious;
ly given in generous quantity and
rapturously applauded. Albani has
won fame; Miss Foster is winning it.
The latter is a wonderful singer���
wonderful in the sense that she has a
marvellous voice, trained to perfection and with a, range and depth and
volume which startles the listener and
convinces him that he is hearing a
truly ; great artiste. The violinist,

unnecessary; it would be >...,., rlluous
���they are great. Nelsonites were told
so; now they know"it.
It was a great conoert���and will
long be remembered as the most dc-
lghtful musical treat ever given here.

THE POPE'S WARNING
LEO     XIII.   DECRIES     THE    ATTEMPTS TO DESTROY CONGREGATIONS IN EUROPE.
SAYS  THE   PONTIFF'S  POSITION
IS SHAMEFUL AND DISAGREEABLE-BAD DIVORCE LAWS.
Rome, April 15.���The pope In his
allocution says: "Sad and dangerous
events had come to pass and were becoming more serious and spreading
from one part of Europe to another.
Several states widely separated but
united bv an identical desire had entered into open war against religion.
The campaign, was directed against
the religious congregations in order
to destroy them gradually. Neither
common law, nor equity, nor the deserts of congregations have prevailed
to prevent tbeir destruction. The
desire was also manifested to prevent
the youth from being educated by, the
congregations of whom many pupils
had become illustrious.
Tbe pontiff then spoke of the position of the pppe, which he said, was
most shameful'and disagreeable. Alluding to tbe divorce bill drawn up by
a socialist deputy of the Italian chamber, the pope said: "To the ancient
nsults levelled at the church, it is desired to add another, profaning tbe
sanctity of Christian marriage and destroying the basis of * domestic society."
The- pope deplored the seriousness of
the present time and foresaw a still
graver outlook in the future. He Urged society' to have recourse to the light
ot God and concluded by announcing
the appointment of the new cardinals
as already cabled,of whom Mgr. Delia
Voice and Mgr. San Miniatelli are reserved in Petto. Russian bishops, of
Mohilok and Jusk were appointed.

these with the later stages of the
American war of independence, as
though to emphasize these fluctuations. While the letters of responsible correspondents in Pretoria depict
the situation in a rather despairing
mood, the Pretoria representative of

CHINESE
INDEMNITY
This Problem Now Vexing the
Powers���Settlement Is
Far Off.
U. S. Proposal to Limit Total
to $200,000,000 Not Well
Received.
Prais, April 15.���The correspondent
here of thu Associated Press is informed from a trustworthy source, that
til _ outlook for an early settlement of
the Chinese indemnity question is
less promising than a week ago. The
negotiations between the powers are
bringing out conflicting ideas and interests and are likely to be very protracted.
The proposition of the United
States to limit thu total indemnity
to 8200,000,000 is the only one under
discussion and is not regarded with
favor by more than one government.
The others consider the sum too small
and are disinclined to reduce their
claims to the ligurus the United States
desires.
A Washington despatch published
in London affirming that the United
States proposes that the indemnity be
divided between the powers in proportion to the number of troops which
participated in the relief of the legations at Pekin is regarded as incorrect. No such proposal has reached
the French government which considers that the entire expense incurred
as a result of whole operations, carried out must be taken as the basis
for indemnity. It is believed that the
claims of individuals will be first
presented and paid. This matter will
be expedited as much as possible in
order to allow an early resumption of
commerce and work on other foreign
enterprises.
Nothing is known of the reported
intention of the emperor to return to
Pekin without the dowager empress
and no faith is placed here in the reported hostility between Russia and
Japan. French information indicates
that conciliatory negotiatons are proceeding between those two countries
with the prospect of a thorough understanding regarding the position of
both towards Manchuria and Korea.

THK   CROW'S    NEST   SOUTHERN.
There can no longer be any doubt
regarding the fate of the application
for a charter for the Crow's Nest
Southern railway. The delay met
with in the railway committee at Ottawa in arriving at a decision in the
matter is only the result of a desire���
and a very commendable one���on the
part of Mr, Blair to have incorporated
in the charter a clause so worded as to
provide a safeguard against any possibility of a shortage of coal and
coke for the Canadian market. The
minister of railways at some length
pointed ont to the members of the
committee that the interests affected
by the proposed railway weie not only
those of tho company and the C. P. R
which at the outset was understood
to be strongly opposed to the railway
project. Public interest was also con
ccrned, he said. He pointed out the
possibility of the coal and railway
companies sacrificing Canadian con
sumers and the Canadian mining and
other interests in favor of the great
er market afforded by the United
States. The government had consult
ed with the coal and railway company
people with a view to making an arrangement which, while not interfering with the expansion of the coal
trade in regard to the United States
market would still adequately protect
Cacadian interests. Up to the pres
ent the negotiations had not been as
successful as he woulu desire, but he
saw no objection to the railway bill
being dealt with, but not finally passed until a satisfactory arrangement
had been made. Replying to a question, Mr. Blair said there are some
who fear that the building of this short
line may lead to the drawing of the
product into the United States to
the detriment of Canadian interests
as the same people own the coal com
pany as are asking for tho railway,al
though not the same incorporation
The government   could very well   say
1 to these people that we intend to exercise our rights in regard to granting
you a charter until you enter into
such covenants as will satisfy all par
ties that Canadian interests will not
suffer. So far as the government's in
tercourse with the Crow's Nest Coal
people was concerned, tbey exhibited
every disposition to yield to any ordi
nary demands that were" made upen
them, tbe chief difficulty being as to
the manner in which Canadian interests were to bo guarded and as to how
such a clause was to be framed. It
was necessary to permit the develop
ment of this industry and at the same
time to see that the smelting industry
of the province of British Columbia
was not jeopardized. Mr. lilair - atti
tude in respect to the application for
tne charter appears reasonable, but
the arguments adduced by the coal
company against the injustice of insisting upon any hard and fast con
tract, seem worthy of some consider
ation. The Ottawa correspondent of
the Toronto Globe referring to the
announcement that the coal company
had consented, in its agreement with
the C. P. R., to the insertion of a
clause in the bill agreeing to sell to
the British Columbia smelter" at the
same rate as to the smelters in the
United States, says: The statement
of the directors of the coal company
who are here did not, however, tally
exactly with that furnished on behalf
of the C. P. R. They were glad to
receive the assurance that the C. P.
R. would not proceed with the opposition, lint they would not confirm the
ieport that they had entered into an
agreement to sell in British Columbia,
under all circumstances, at the same
rates as in the United States. In support of   the coal company's hesitancy
' to enter into such an agreement as re
ferred.to, it is, said that in the first
place the C. P. R.'s right to ask for
uny such understanding may seriously
be questioned. The C. P. R. corporation stands in no danger of interference with its own supply of fuel. It
has large areas.of coal lands at Lethbridge, and it is entitled to part of
the coal lands in the Crow's Nest
Pass district. The government, too,
reserved 50,000 acres for the public
jibe.    Its uwn   interests   being   safe
guarded, the C. P. R. professes to be
acting for the welfare of the British
Columbia smelters as a whole. The
company's record in the past, however, does not warrant the assumption
that its policy is influenced by any
unselfish regard for tbe inteiests of
the public. With respect to the Crow's
Nest Pass Coal Company and the British Columbia market the aigument
urged on behalf of the company is that
any hard and fast contract with respect to eales will really militate
against the interests of the province.
The demand for fuel in British Columbia mountains is small and uncertain.
For seven months of last year the
total demand of the smelters in the
province amounted lo only one weeu's
output of the Fernie mines with their
present plant. In order to develop
the mines and obtain some retuin for
the large amount of capital sunk a
large and assured market is required.
Such a market is to he had in Montana, if the company can adapt its
pi ices to meet the competition there.
If restricted to meeting the small
and fluctuating demand in Hritish
Colqmbia the company will be compelled to charge about $2 a ton more
than it does at present in order to
muct expenses and cany on mining at
a profit. The capture of the maiket
on the other side of the line would
mean such an expansion of operations
that the company would be able to sell
in British Columbia at tne lowest rate
compatible with profitable mining.
Moreover, there is one further point,
the larger the output of coal in British Columbia the greater the expenditure for wages and supplies in British
Columbia. Such is the nature of the
objections raised by the coal company
to the enactment of the clause, which
the C. P. 11. would like to see enforced, aod to which no other coal .om-
pany in this country is sifbject.
CURRENT COMMENT
It is now a debatable question as to
how much of China will be left after
the indemnity claims shall have been
paid.        __________________
It would not be at all surprising to
leain that the rumor that the C. P. R.
has acquired the White Pass & Yukon
railway is correct.
Now that Steyn has joined in with
the other Moor leaders who advise surrender, it will not likely be many
days before peace terms are agreed
upon. _______________
The attention of tbe people of Nelson is directed " to the article "The
Newspaper and the Man Who Reads
It," which appears under the head of
"Current   Comment"   in   this   issue.
The necessity of extreme watchfulness on the part of the local health
officials is shown in the unearthing of
the plot on the part of travellers to
evade the inspection provided for in
the quarantine regulations.
THE NEWSPAPER   AND THE MAN
WHO READS IT.
The man who subscribes for and
reads a newHpaper has a right to expect that it iviii treat him faiily, ana
if it fails in that it is erentually
found out, and from that moment will
stand still and cease to increase its
influence. Sometimes, by the use of
skill, a paper may manage to deceive
its readers for u long time, but gradually, one by one. they learn to distrust it, until in the end it is generally recongi/.ed that it gives short
weight to its  customers.
The man who subscribes for or buys
a newspaper in order to get the news
and the editor's views upon current
events is as clearly entitled to get the
news of the day for the money he
pays as he is entitled to get a pound
of tea when he pays for a pound of
tea. The reader of a newspaper
should be put in possession of the
facts; he is entitled to that under the
contract involved in his subscription.
To conceal important news from the
people who depend upon a pnper for
information, iB comparable with the
dishonesty that would deliver half a
ton of coal to a householder and collect pay for a ton.
As for its views, a newspaper is
free���and must be conceded freedom
���to interpret facts and construe the
news according to its honest judg
ment. It may take the wrong view in
the opinion of many of its readers,
but if it publishes the news if it does
not hide some of the known and authenticated facts, there can be no well
grounded complaint against it. The
paper that saericfies anything of candor or conscience to make its views
conform to the expectations of its
leaders will miss the mark, and its
intelligence will gradually fall into
disuse. Readers have a right to the
facts, to the news���perhapB, carrying
the idea to its extremest leach, they
should be privileged to sue for dam
ages in cases where tbey have been
misinformed, or deprived of current
information, just as a medical man
may be mulcted, in damages for mal
practice���but they have no grievance
if the newspaper's views do not corre
spond with their own ; they ought not
to expect it, always. The opinions
of a paper, like those of a man, may
be unfounded or partizan, or any
thing .else, but no paper or man can
live usefully without having views.
The leader usually seeks among the
newspapers for the one that, on the
average,stands for the same principles
as himself, but no one reader can follow anyone paper every day for a y.ar
and concur in all its opinions. The
editor docs not always agree with
himself the year round. If an editor
were afraid to say a word with which
his leaders disagreed, he would find
it necessary to stifle many a healthy
thought lest it should give offense.
But there is a difference between
views and news. The latter is marketable merchandise, ordered nnd paid
for by the subscriber,and the publisher should deliver the goods. By various attractive ways of parcelling it up,
newspapers seek to outstrip each other
in business and in attracting custom;
but whether delivered in chunks or in
pellets, in bags or boxes, delivered it
ought to be, or tbe reader has just
ground for complaining of breach of
contract.
It is a queer thing���true now, but
not always to be true, perhaps���that
a man can be fined or imprisoned for
poisoninga dog, but not for poisoning
the public mind.���Toronto Star.
It seemB like going just a little too
far for tbe Methodist court of appeal
to undertake to censure a clergyman
for baving used tobacco. It is conceivable that a pastor might do worse
than that and yet escape condemnation.
Montieal has decided to close the
theaterB on Sunday. We always had
the impression that the East was very
goody-goody ; but it appears they are
much more naughty there than we
are, for in the west there are few

permitted on Sunday.
The rates of pension to he granted
to the non-commissioned officers and
men of the permanent corps, if the
minister of militia's pension bill is
enacted, will be on the following ba-
sis: On completing twenty, but not
lesB than 25 years service, an annual
Bum equal to twenty-fiftieths of his
annually pay,with an addition of two-
fiftieths of his annual pay, for every
completed year of service above twenty
years; on completing 36 years' service
an annual sum ,equal to thirty-
fiftieths of his annual pay for every
completed year of service above 25
years; provided, however, that the
pension shall not exceed two-thirds of
his annual pay on his retirement.
Capt. Hernier has strong hopes that
the Ottawa government will agree to
meet the expenditure for building a
vessel to take him to the north pole
He is now consulting with Capt. Mc-
Elhinney, nautical adviser to the marine department, who has been authorized to pieparc an estimate of the
coat of such a vessel for tbe government. In Capt. Bernier's opinion the
vessel should be 110 feet long, with
an extreme breadth of BQ feet, a depth
of 18 feet and 300 indicated horsepower. Such a vessel would cost 880,-
000 if built at Vancouver. Capt. Hernier has written to Lord Strathcona,
asking him to become honorary president of the expedition. lie says that
Mr. J. I!. Tyrnll, the explorer, and
another well-known Canadian, have
promised to accompany the expedition if it Is organized. J

QUESTION ANSWERED.
Yes.Augnst Flower still has the largest sale of any medicine in the civilized world. Your mothers and grandmothers never thought of using any
thing else for Indigestion or HIliouB-
nesB. Doctors were scarce, and they
seldom heard of Appendicitis, Nervous
Prostration or Heart faf'ure, etc
They used August Flower to clean out
the system and stop fermentation of
undigested food, regulate the- action
of the system, and that is all they
took when feeling dull and bad with
headaches and other aches. You only
need a few doses of Green's August

CAPTUREU  AN AMERICAN.
Alleged   Son   of   Wealthy    American
Captured Among Boers.
Paris, April 15.���"Among the Boer
prisoners who recently arrived in
Lisbon from Loren.o Marques,'' says
a special dispatch from the Portuguese
capital, "was a young American,
Randolph Martinsen, who described
himself as a son of the president of
the Missouri, Kansas A Texas railroad. He was captured by the Hritish
but released as an American with a
promise not to fight. Rut he was
again arrested in Lorenzo Marques
at the request of the British authoritiesunder suspicion of being a Uoer
agent.
"Mr. Martinsen, on being brought
here, secured his release through the
American charge d'affaires and his
father sent him money to pay his way
home. According to his representations he was aide de camp to Colonel
John Blake, commander of the Irish
brigade."
A dispatch to the London Daily
Mail from Lorenzo Marques cabled to
the Associated Press, March 11, said
that Mr. Martinsen, who was said to
have resigned a position the United
States army to join the Boer forces,
had been shipped from Lisbon on the
Portguese transport Zare, which carried 103 Boer families, after he had
made an ineffectual attempt to obtain
consular protection.

The Nelson Masons who were initi

MEETING ADJOURNED- J
The regular meeting of th 'AT ,y
oouncil last night was adjomii_.i to

ETTLING PRICE   REDUCED.
Smelting Trust's Move to Reduce Production of Lead Ores.
Word has been received in Nelson
that the American smelting company
has reduced the basis of the settling
price for lead from $4 to 83.00. It is
probably merely a coincidence that
the reduction came at the same time
that the consolidation with the Guggenheim's occurred���a stroke that removed all danger of competition in
the western market. The manage
ment says it was necessitated because
the production so far exceeds the demand that the iormer price could not
be maintained. In the meantime the
New York quotation remains the
Bame, Si.'ilhi. "If over-production is
the reason," said a well known operator, "if that 10 cent cut does not close
down some of the lead-producing
mines pretty soon, the trust will likely make another slash and compel a
curtailment in the amount."
ASSESSMENT COMMENCED���
Major Strachan, city clerk, has begun his annual assessment work in
earnest. Though authorized to begin
the compilation of the roll a month or
more ago he has not been able to ge.
out of the city hall until the present
time by'reason of the work which in
constantly increasing quantities devolves ou himin his capacity as clerk.
The assessment roll is to be completed early in May and is expected to
show a very material increase in the
value of real estate on account of extensive buiding operations   last   year.
INDUSTRIOUS MINER���
William Fell, well known in police
circles through his affection for the
provincial jail, has been in town for
several days after working a few
shifts at the Silver King mine. Fell
went to the police cells voluntarily on
Friday night and on Saturday went In
again after imbibing freely. To show
that be was grateful for the protection and lodging William set to in the
morning to scrub out the entire premises and split several days supply of
wood. The door of the cells will always be on the latch for this gentleman.
HOW MANY PEOPLE���
The completion of the work of taking the census in Nelson is awaited
with keen interest. Many estimates
of the population have been made,
ranging from 5.000 to 7,000. An
enumerator who is taking one of the
principal residential and business sections of tbe city has estimated that
the population will total in the neighborhood of .1,500.
MINING RECORDS���
Yesterday's mining records were as
follows: Transfers, a half interest in
the Brown, Killarney, Homeward nnd
Alverston claims on the divide between Forty-Nine and Bird creeks by
Mike Egan to Daniel Palmer and the
remaining interest in the claims by
Egan to John Simpson, a half interest
in the Quo Vadis and Plezze claims
by Simpson to Palmer.
HOLMES IN COMMAND���
The offlcers^of the Nelson Rlflo company have received a notification to
the effect that Lieut.-Col. Holmes has
taken over the militia in British Columbia as district officer commanding. Colonel Holmes was in command
of No. i district with headquarters
at London, (int., when the street riots
were commenced. He handled the situation diplomatically and won a reputation for himself.
QUESTION SHELVED���
W. A. Galliher, M. P., has written
the local militia'.uflicers stating that
he had Interviewed the officials of the
militia department at Ottawa in regard to matters of interest to the Nelson company. The department had
stated that 'he question of reorganizing the entire militia service was
under consideration and that the Nelson company's affairs would be taken
into consideralirti in connection with
the general scheme.
RAILROAD WORK���
W. P. Tierney A Co. now have 13
teams and .10 men at work on the big
earth cut at the. approach to the Columbia river hridgo on the Castlegar
approach. Within a week or two the
���work will be sufficiently advanced to

7.1 men. The firm is making preparations to establish camps at bridges 82,
08, 0!) and (io which are to be filled
in. This and other itorns will keep
the firm busy all summer und probably for a part of next winter.
FORESTERS TO MEET���
The subsidiary grand lodge of the
Independent Order of Foresters meets
at Revelstoke on Monday next. Kootenay court of this city will be repressed by (1. C, S. Paterson and J, J.
Chambers. The meeting is of more
than ordinary general interest because
of the fact that Ihe Independent Foresters is the only fraternity whose executive head is located 'u Nelson.
F. W. Swannell. collector of Inland
Revenues, is high chief ranger of the
jurisdiction and in that capacity will
preside   at   the meetings at which   50
jodjjes will he reprewnted.
EXPENSIVE SPREE���
Bonnie Carlyle, keeper of a disorderly house at Robson, went on a spree
tbe other day and paid dearly for the
fun. She was arrested and brought to
the city yesterday by Constable Alan
Forrester. Court was held at the provincial polise office, Frank Fletcher,
J. P., presiding. The Carlyle woman
was fined 92H and costs or three
months on the charge of keeping g
disorderly house nnd a similar amount
for creating a disturbance by being
drunk and disorderly at Sproat's
Landing on Friday, the sentences to
be consecutive. Defendant did not
have'the $.18.40 necessary to liquidate
the fine and is now  in jail.
BULGARIANS PROTEST.
Sofia, Bulgaria, April 15.���At an
open mass meeting held here today at
which 10,000 people were present, a
resolution was passed protesting
against the arrest of a member of the
Macedonian committee and condemning tbe attitude of Russia on the
Macedonian question. The meeting
expressed itself as in favor of asking
for European intervention against the
persecution of Bulgarians by Turkey.
The demonstration passed off quietly.
Numerous similar meetings have
been held in the province.
AFTER MANY YEARS.
Philadelphia, April 15.���The famous ''hat trimming" cases involving
about $20,000,000, and which since
1884 have been the subject of bitter
legal battles between the government
and a number of merchants, have at
last been settled. It is stated on high
authority that a compromise has bean
effected through which the merchants
interested will receive $4,000,000 from
the treasury in full payment of the
much larger amounts they claim to
have been forced to pay in excess of
legal duties.
