be condemned for the adoption of
measures to protect rights acquired in
Manchuria. Under the present conditions, the duty of presenting order
in Manchuria would devolve upon
those responsible for Russia's withdrawal nnd it would not conduce to

A NEW COURT
HOUSE WANTED
Citizens* Meeting to Discuss
the Question Has Been
.   Called.
Present Building Unsuitable
and a  Disgrace to
Kootenay.
RECOVERED DAMAGES.
Middletown, N.Y., April 10.���James
Foster of " Monntaindule, Sullivan
county has secured a verdict for 811,>
000 in the Hupreme court of this county against the International Paper Co.
of Niagara Falls for injuries received.
On Friday evening the citizens of
Nelson will meet at the opera house
to discuss the question of a neV�� courthouse for Nelson and to take such
steps as will bring the matter before
the legislature in such a light as to
convince the house that the present
building is not only unsuited to tbe
purposes but that it a disgrace to a
prosperous country such as Kootenay
is and altogether inadequate to the
demands of the legal business transacted here. The matter has been discussed at various periods and the exact situation laid before the government but practically nothing has been
accomplished. It is believed that united action on the part of citizens generally will have the effect of placing an
emphasis on the demand for better
courthouse accommodation that
cannot be disregarded by the government. The present juncture is regarded ns a fovorite stage of the proceedings to take action in the direction indicated, hence the publio meeting called for Friday night by Mayor Fletcher.
When tbo present courthouse was
erected it amply filled the bill,but the
county of Kootenay has grown and
expanded with leaps and bounds until
the buildinc is no longer adequate or
sightly. With tho growth of the
county industrially and commercially
it was a matter of course that the
amount of legal business to be transacted and the litigation to be handled would increase in equal ratio.
For this reason it occurs that legal
business equal in volume, it is said,
to either of the big coast cities is
transacted in premises erected to handle business of fractional measure.
Court sat in Nelson last year as
long as at the coast and the complaints as to the building were numerous. Mr. Justice Walkem was ill for
several days as the result of exposure
in the building and finally refused to
occupy the court room further, moving to the judgo's private room on
tbe ground floor. When Mr. Justice
Irving arrived to hold the last sitting
of the supreme court here the conditions were similar and his lordship
transacted considerable of the business downstairs, besides declining to
use the dais in the court room set
aside for the judge's use. There is no
room in the courthouse which can be
used for witnesses. The apartment
ocoupied by the law library was used
as a place to Isolate witnesses when
the case in which they happened to be
interested was being heard, until last
winter when one of the witnesses
who hud been thus Isolated grnvely
announced in the witness box that
every word said by the preceding witness had been heard by him in the adjoining room. The legal men In attendance at court have absolutely no
accommodation except tbat afforded
by a tiny room at the south east corner, and tho space is so limited us to
be practically useless. Moreover, the
space set aside for the bar Is so limited that the lawyers are hampered for
room When the publio attends a
case they are cramped into a limited
space at the back of the hall with two
big wood stoves going at top speed in
their midst. The stoves must be kept
hot to warm the room which is otherwise unhealed and the spectators
must suffer. The ventilation Is a
travesty. Judges and juries have
placed their views on record) the
board of trade has discussed the mut
ter and unanimously resolved that the
city of Nelson and the County of
Kootenay is^ worthy of better courthouse buildings and now the citizens
are about to take a bund In the
matter. When a corporation like the
C. P. R. is sufficiently wideawake to
tho Importance of Nelson to erect
here a handsome and .spurious passenger depot, surely it Is up to the government of the country to replace a
couthouse which would be it dlsgruce
to a centre of half the Importance.
ROBBERY ON
A STEAMSHIP
A Serious Affair on  Board
the Kaiser Wilhelm der
Crosse.
Thought That the Theft Was
the Result of a Big
Conspiracy.
London, April. 10.���A big robbery
of specie is reported to have occurred
on the steamship Kaiser William der
Grosse. Passengers who were landed
at'Southampton told a reporter of the
Associated Press that at Cherbourg,
contrary to custom, the passengers
had been kept on board until six
o'clock in the morning. The officers
of the steamer explained that the tender had not come out, but this failed
to satisfy the impatient passengers,
who, however, were quite ignorant
unitl they landed that their detention
was due to the investigations consequent upon the theft and the precautions exercised at Cherbourg. But the
fact that these precautions were not
observed subsequently at Southampton was taken to indicate that the
officials believe the conspiracy had its
chief end on the continent. The passengers are inclined to believe that
the lobbery must have been accomplished by an individual exceptionally
conversant with the arrangements of
the steamship company, for not one
of the cabin passengers apparently
knew there was specie on board, much
less where it was kept.
Paris, April 10.���The only suspicious incident on board the steamer
was a fight between two members of
tho crew on tho evening of her arrival at Cherbourg during which both
men,were stabbed with knives. A
little later, the robbery was discovered. These particulais have been tele,
graphed to Bremen.
ing to be shipped to England and
there is such a run on vessels ihat
even colliers are being pressed into
service. Sugar imports for the month
of Marcli were .57,4911 tons as against
131,363 tons in Mareh of lust year. If
it should turn out that no tax is to be
levied on sugar, there would doubtless be a great slump in prices and
probably a number of speculators
would fail.
TRICOLOR   AND   OLD GLORY
Were Entwined at a Washington State
Ball Last Night.
Washington, April 10.���The ball
given tonight by the French ambassador in honor of the French naval officers and cadets of the training ship
"Guguay Touin" now lying at Baltimore was one of the most brilliant social events Washington lias seen for a
long time. Something of an international significance was given to the
affair by the entwining of the French
tri-color and the American stars aud
stripes, the presence of [nearly the entire membership of the president's
cabinet and their wives and the fraternizing of officers of all branches
of the United States military and naval service, with tbeir companions in
arms from the republic of France.

SPRING AND RUSHED.
Rossland, April 10.-Though announced only nt 2 p. in., a large and
representative meeting was held here
tonight to discuss the Coast-Kootenay
railway. Speeches wore made by
Smith Curtis, V. VI. Rolt, J. B. McArthur. and James II. Martin. Irrespective of party political leanings the
sentiment was strongly for railway
competition. The following resolution was passed unanimously und
certainly voiced the sentiment of the
oitizens:
"Resolved, .that it being assumed
that die provincial government will
not built the direct Coast-Kootenay
railway as a public work, but intends
as declared in the speech from the
throne, to subsidize a company to
build it, then it is the emphatic opinion of tbis meeting that such subsidy
should go only to a competitive line
entirely independent of the C. P. R,
with provisions absolutely preventing
any amalgamation with or control
by the C. P. R.
"Also, that such railway should be
oxtended at least as far as the boundary at Cascade, and that it is the imperative duty of the government in
the interests ot the countiy to have
such railway begun this spring aud
pushed to completion at the earliest
possible date."
TWO MEN LOST IN A FIRE WHICH
DESTROYS STEAMER ROYAL
CITY.
(SI'KCIAI, TO THE MINER.)
Vancouver, B. 0., April 10.���J. C.
Mc Lagan, proprietor of the Vancouver
World, one. of the best kuown journalist., in the west and for years a prominent worker in the ranks of the Liberal party died at $:���',., tonight,
aged 02
The waters around British Columbia
gave up their dead today and two
Americans who had been missing foi
some time were given u Christian
burial. One of the unfortunates was
Charles Dean, a young man but 2H
years old. He had been missing for
some time. On Wednesday his body
wus found half buried in the mud on
False creek. Dean's people live in
Eagle, Nebraska. His father is u
prominent divine there.
The other unfortunate was Duncan
Rowan, a widower, whose father and
mother reside in Erie, Pa. Mr. Rowan was engaged in watching a consignment of salmon at Terra Nova,
B. C, in December last. In a blinding snow storm he walked off tbe
wharf Into the Fraser. His body was
found on Wednesday entangled In a
fisherman's net.
The steamer Royal City was burned
at the wharf at Mission City at 2
o'clock this morning, with fatal results. The loss is 815,000. Jack
West, one of the owners, first noticed
the Humes and rescued his sisters.
Two tons of hay caught fire. The
ship wus all ablaze in a few minutes.
So quickly did it burn that two men
lost their lives before thoy could
rousn them from sleep antl reach the
wharf. Paul Peter ot Port Hammond,
and Frank Edwards, of llatzic, were
burned.
The steamer Umatilla has arrived
from Central -America with S,0,1,1 bags
of sugur for the Vancouver Sugur Refinery. The shipment wus so large
that it wus decided  not   to   tranship.
COLORED MAN WON.
Baltimore, Md.', April 10.���Harry
Lyons, the colored featherweight of
this city defeated Tom Moran of
Brooklyn here tonight. Moran's seconds threw up the sponge In tho loth
round to save him fiom being knocked out. The match was for 20 rounds
at 128 pounds.
EXCITEMENT IN SUGAR.
London, April 11.���With the approach of the budget statement, the
excitement In the sugar market is
reaching fever heal. Wharves at
Hamburg are choked with sugur wait
RUSSIA   THREATENS.
Warns Li Hung Chung That Severe
Methods Will Bu Advocuted.
London, April 11.���"M. Deglcru demands the return of ull communications to the Chinese authorities from
the Russian legutlon regarding the
Manchurian negotiations" says Dr.
Morrison, wiring to the Times from
Pekin, "and hi) has warned Li Hung
Chung thut, instead of being, us has
heretofore, an udvoeuto of the Chinese cause in tlie conference of the
minisstcr of the powers, he will
henceforth support the policy of the
utmost severity. Russlu has still
ample means to indulge this spirit.
The report is current, but I believe it
is premature thut Russia has already prepared a fresh form of convention. Doubtless, however, when
thu process of intiiuidutlon bus been
cariied fur enough, a fresh attempt
will be ui.ule to reeovei the lust
ground. "
Cupetown, April 10.���General Botha
has reopened negotiations with the
British for peace. As announced here,
thiB action was determined in part
by Botha's discovery at a recent meeting that General Dewet's intellect had
weakened, and tbis his influence with
his followers was diminishing and
that a continuance of the campaign,
in view of General Dewet's Irresponsibility, rested with General
Botha alone.
It Ib understood here that although
Qene.al Dewet at his recent interview
with General Botha, refused to surrender, General Botha, regarding bim
as irresponsible, undertakes to negotiate in behalf of the free Boer forces.
The British authorities here cousider
that if General Botha surrenders Dewet's following can be easily taken.
London, April 11.���"It is semi-offl-
eially asserted here," says the Capetown correspondent of the Dally Telegraph, "that General Botha has hid
another interview with Lord Kitchener in which he informed him that
he had seen General Dewet, who still
refused to entertain tbe Idea of surrender on any terms. General Botha,
however, regards Dewet as no longer
responsible for his actions and serin
a mod -s v' jn '       "of  all   the
burghers forces."
London, April 10.���The report that
General Botbu has renewed the negotiations of Lord Kitchener is not yet
officially confirmed, but it Is generally credited and is received with satisfaction except by the ultra-jingoes,
who fear that the government will
renew the terms recently rejected.
Regarding General Dewet's mental
condition reports have been very conflicting for some time. Ills recent
inactivity points to theie being some
truth In the rumors which allege that
long continued hardships under the
harassing British pursuit have unhinged his mind. On the other hand,
a correspondent of the Times quite
recently acknowledged "the wonderful foresight and fertility of resource"
which characterized General Dewet's
retreat from Cape Colony.
Ab during the previous negotiations,
the British press again loudly insist
on "unconditional surrender," but
with the budgetary necessities staring
the country in the face, if negotiations are reopened tlie Boers, as the
Dally Chronicle remarks editorially,
"may reckon on fair ticatment," at
the hands of the Biltish,
New York, April 10.���Charles I),
Pierce, official representative In New
York of the Boers, gives positive d��-
nial of the statement cabled from Europe thut President Kruger will sail
for the United States on May 31.
"There Is absolutely nothing in the
story," he said, "Mr. Kruger may
come here In the fall, but not sooner.
He la taking the rest which he needs
so badly."
A DOUBLE PURPOSE.
London, April 10.���The Pall Mall
Gazette today discussing a cabled suggestion that J. Picrpont Morgan's
visit to Europe concerns not only the
steel trust but the Panama canal project, considers it probable that the
strong feeling of British ship owners
in regard to tho Panama route has
some Influence with Mr. Morgan, and
says the White Star lino officials issued special orders that no reporters
be allowed to hoard tho Teutonic at
Qurenstown, owing to tho pre��ence_of
Mr. Morgan on board.

OUTLOOK FOR NELSCN.
It is   very   difficult   to  understand
how anyone with a knowledge of what
is  contemplated by mining companies
in the exploitation of properties adjacent to Nelson, and   by   the   C. P. R.
in expenditures in permanent improvements upon   its  transportation   lines,
can doubt for one moment that this city
is certain   to continue to  grow   with
rapid strides and that   the   immediate
future   will   show   a   satisfactory increase in the volume of business���that,
in short, there is to be no stoppage in
the   continuation   of   "good   times."
Yet if one cares to search for   opinion
of a contrary   nature, he will   hear it
stated that we are   going   to   have  a
quiet summer.    Wc do   not think this
latter estimate of the situation is well
founded���on the contrary,   we believe
it can   be   demonstrated to   the satisfaction of even   the   most   pessimistic
that the   outlook   foi Nelson is  most
excellent.    Yesterday The Miner gave
publicity to the plans of the   C. P. R.
in pursuance of its summer programme
of improvements on Its  lines adjacent
to     Nelson.    An      appropriation     of
8100,000 has been made for   improving
the line between   Nelson  and Kobson,
and this sum is likely   to   be   further
increased by the   construction of   the
new bridge   at   Kootenay   Crossing-
swelling the aggregate   amount to   be
disbursed in Nelson this year close   to
8300,000.    Then,   also,    there is a certainty   that   development   In   mining
properties in   the  immediate   vicinity
of the city is to be pushed   with vigor
and on such a scale as will necessitate
the   expenditure    of    much   capital.
Properties   on the   great free-milling
belt which   stretches   for   miles   west
of Nelson are to be   taken hold of energetically,   stamp-mills   erected   und
lurge   additions   made    to   operating
plants.    The Molly   Gibson mine is to
resume   work   in   a   few   weeks, this
property being regarded   as one of the
biggest   propositions   in   tlie   Nelson
camp; the May und   Jennie   group   of
mines are to be exploited   vigorously,
as also will the Elgin group,   situated
in a new camp likely to be   established on Proctor creek.
It will thus be seen that promise is
given of much which will icsult in
Immediate benefit to Nelson. But
aside altogether from the specific in
stances which lire mentioned ubove as
calculated to conduce to the prosper
ity of the city, Nelson possesss an advantage in its position which cannot
fall to ultimately give her a placo
among the larger cities of western
Canada. The great distributing point
for Southern Hritish Columbiu, and
situuted In the very heart of a country
with grcut untiiinl resources, Nelbon
cun face the future with the utmost
Confidence,
Ireland and repeat in ull of them his
alluring tales of free farms,free transportation, and certain fortunes. He
will endcavoi to turn the attention of
Young Brittannia to Canada so completely that it will not want to live
anywhere else. He said to a correspondent: "Canada wants to attract
to itself a great English-speaking population. That country is the rightful heritage of the sons and daughters
of the Mother Country. It is my mission to inform them what a priceless
heritage is theirs. We need a Cecil
Rhodes there, a man of blood and
iron, who will grasp the possibilities
of the land and devote his life to
their development."
THE  REFINERY.
The report which Mr. S. S. Taylor,
delegate from the Nelson board of
trade, brings from Ottawa,| where he
went to lay before the federal government the claims of British Columbiu for aid in the establishment of a
refinery, is roost cheering. There
seems every likelihood that the required bonus will be forthcoming and
that before long the mining industry
will be placed on a satisfactory basis
in so far as the establishment of a refinery may contribute to that end.
The representations made by Mr. Taylor no doubt made a profound impression at Ottawa,and, backed up as they
will be by the expression of opinion
on the same subject by the large delegation now at the capital, the government cannot but be convinced that
the interests of the country demand
the concession asked for and will readily yield to tlie piessure thus brought
to bear upon it.
A   PROPER   PROTEST.
Outbursts of Canadian patriotism
rendered noteworthy a meeting at the
Royal Canadian Institute in London
recently. They were provoked by the
Rev. John McDougall, the famous
"preaoher scout" of tho North-West
Territory, who has been sent to Great
Britain to conduct a missionary campaign for emigrants throughout the
United Kingdom. His glowing descriptions of the resources of Canada
fired the soul of K. C, Ireland,u native.
of Canudu, who is now a resident of
London. Addressing Lord Strathcona,
the Dominion high commissioner,
who was in the chair, Ireland said:
"I urn tired of hearing the peoplo of
Canada spoken of us Americans. We
are not Americans, wc are Cunadlans,
Let the people of the United States
have a monopoly of the name American. Canadian manufacturers arc stupidly fond of stumping their wares
'Made in America.' They ought lo
know better. We Cuniiaiuns huve no
occasion to take u back seut so fur us
the United States is concerned, The
people of that country are crossing
the border-line in swarms and taking
up their residence in tile great Dominion. When Canada shall be us old as
the United Stutos is now half the

CITY OF NELSON.
Public  Meeting.
Canada has declared war upon the
"white plague," consumption, the
federal government having voted the
sum of 830,000 to be devoted to devising ways and means to combat the ravages of the enemy.
J. C. McLagan editor and proprietor
of the Vancouver World is dear1.
Mr. McLagan was one of the hardest
working journalists in Canada, and
did very effective work for the Liberal   party^ ^^
In is now shown that "Gat" Howard was shot down in cold blood by
the Boers, he and a single companion
having surrendered to greatly superior numbers. After this let us hear nq
more of alleged harsh treatment accorded the enemy by Kitchener,
The Rossland Miner is booming Dr.
Sinclair for the new senatorship,
which, it is anticipated, will be given
British Columbia. On the assumption
that it is the early bird which catches
the worm, Dr. Sinclair would seem
to have a good chance for getting the
plum.       _-.._.....    ._	
The utility of the Marconi wireless
telegraphy system was strikingly illustrated when two of His Majesty's
ships were passing Malta recently.
The latest telegrams from London, including a summary of Mr. Arnold-
Footer's speech on the Navy Estimates in tbe House of Commons, the
latest news uf Dewet, and other items
of intelligence,were successfully taken
in ut a distance of thirty miles.
The Hamilton Spectator protests
against the system of "lobbying,"
Piotests are all right, but It is difficult to name a romedy for tho grievance complained of. "Lobbying" is
but another name for Interviewing
members of pnrllament with the object to Inducing them to act in accordance with the interviewers' wishes on
some particular mutter. A man who
could frame u law which would prevent that would be a "dandy." True,
the "lobbyists" could be prevented
irom entering the house, but' they
would urrungc to button-hole the
members in some other place.
In accordance with a petition presented to me, requesting me to convene a meeting of the citizens of Nel,

considering the question of the urgent necessity for tlie erection of a
new court house in this city, I hereby
convene a
Public Meeting
of the citizens of Nelson to be held in

Mr. Edgar Wallace, If what the

Is said to be a good sample of Mr!

A stretcher���and on It a Case;

TO ESTABLISH CREMATORY
THE CITY   COUNCIL   IS   SHORTLY
TO TAKE DP THE QUE8-
������-Bb TION.
FACILITIES   REQUIRED    TO   DIS
POSE OF THE RUBBISH AND
OTHER WASTE.
Within the next lew weeks the city
council will proba.ly'go into the mutter of establishing a crematory in the
city to dispose ot the rubbish and other waste and objectionable matter
now hauled to the city dumping
grounds on Cottonwood creek. Alderman Patterson, chairman of the board
of works, has the proposition under
advisement and purposes bringing the
question to the attention of the council as soon as he secures the information necessary to bave it discussed
from a business standpoint. It will
he remembered that last year's council had the crematory proposition under consideration at one time and
went to the length of instructing the
city engineer to secure data relating
to the operation of similar institu
tions at Victoria and other points.
No definite action, however, was taken, although the advantage of crematory methods over the existing plan
for the disposition of waste matter
was admitted by every member_of the
board. Alderman Patterson has gone
into tbe question again and proposes
to urge upon the council the adoption
of the scheme. His arguments are
those of efficiency and economy. The
chairman of the board of works maintains that with the crematory the
work of cleaning up the yards and alleys so essential to the health and
good appearance of the city will be
performed iSiore thoroughly than is
the case at present. Further, he ar
gues that the present plan of hauling
garbage two miles up hill to a dumping ground is opposed to economy. He
would locate the crematory on the
lake front at a point where any fumes
arising from the burning rubbish
would not inconvenience any residents. Then the haul would be reduced in length by one-half at the
least, and by reason of avoiding the
heavy grades tbe men and teams could
make more frequent trips and the
wear and tear would be reduced to a
comparatively narrow margin. The
saving effected by reducing the haul
and tbe cost of handling generally
would more than pay the interest on
the sum invested in the purchase and
erection of the pl&ut.
Alderman Patterson has already
gone into the crematory question at
considerable length and has possessed
himself of considerable information
hearing on the subject. Furthermore,
he is in communication with a firm of
English manufacturers who ar3 reputed to build the most modern and efficient system of garbage crematories.
From this establishment Alderman
Patterson proposes to secure all the
details relating to the erection and
maintenance Of crematory to supply
the needs of city of 10,0110 inhabitants.
Equipped with the data he will place
the question.before his committee and
the city council and urge the adoption
of the system, it is estimated that a
crematory for Nelson would not cost
over 83,500 _t the outside and that
the maintenance is only a small item

QUESTION ANSWERED.
Ycs.August Flower still has the largest sale of any medicine in the civilized world. Your mothers and giund-
mothers never thought of 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 tbe Bystem. 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
Flower, in liquid form, to make you
satisfied there is nothing serious the
matter with yon. For sale by W. F.

He: wgs inlormed that the figures

" JUST LIKE PAPA."
Children Glad to Have Their Coffee Liko
Their Parents.
More than any of the old folks realize, tho little folks at the table like to
have food and drink the same as
Father and Mother. Perhaps you can
remember the time when a fork full
of the meat or potatD or a sir from
the cup that your Father and Mother
was using seemed to possess some remarkable merit and flavor. If the
children can be given a strong, nourishing food drink such as Postum
Food Coffee It more than satisfies their
desire to have things like the older
fol���B,aiid at the same time gives them
a drink they love antl fatten on.
A lady up In (lakes, N. D,, says
that since their family have been
drinking Postum the children are
strong,-! and better than ever before,
and arc so glad to think they can have
coffee to drink "just like papa."
The husband and father was takon
sick with a very severe attack of
stomach trouble und had to give up
work, being confined to the house for
some weeks, suffering greatly. For
some time he had been in the habit of
drinking coffee for breafast, and tea
for dinner and supper. The wifu
writes, "After reading some of your
advertisements we wondered if coffee
adn tea had not been the cause of his
sickness.
We finally decided to have him quit
tea and coffee and try I'ostum Food
Coffee. He dates his recovery from
the day he commenced, to drink Postum, antl has not had to stop work
from sickness since then. Some
years ago I tried a package of Postum
and did not like It, but I know now
that was because I did not mako it
right. It is easy to make good Postum" if the simple direction urc followed. The only failure is when people do not boil it long enough.
Please do not publish myL name. I
am always ready to teli, however, of
the merits of Postum. " Name given
by the Postum Cereal Co., Ltd., at
Battle deck, Mich.
MINING RECORDS���
Yesterday's mining records were as
follows: Transfers, a quarter interest
in the Smuggler fraotion on Wild
Horse creek by Herman Flanders of
Nelson to Samuel Marshall, consideration, 8100; a half interest in the
Amethystine, Tourmaline and New
Year claims, three miles from Trail,
by W. W. Carlisle, to Jacob Hoeges.of
Oakland, California; certificates of
work, to M. C. Monaghan on the Gold
Standard, Ruby and Garnet; to Frank
Fletcher on the Turcoise; to the Erie
Mountain Con. on the Fritz of Nan-
sen fractional; to J. B. Iiaxter on the
Ophir.
JUDGMENT GIVEN���
The judgment was received here
yesterday in the matter of Oppenhelm-
er vs. Brackman at. Ker Milling company, before the supreme court of
Canada. Elliot A Lennie for the
plaintiff.made application for leave to
appeal per saltum to the supreme
court at Ottawa without going to the
supreme court of British Columbia at
Vancouver, on the ground that in a
pievi.us appeal the supreme court of
this province had decided that the letters relating to the sale of hay which
formed the basis of the action amounted to a contract and that no advantage
could be gained by again appealing to
that court. Taylor ft Hannington
opposed the application. Judgment
was given on April 4, dismissing the
application with costs.
THE ALBANI CONCERT���
The advance sale of tickets for the
Albani concert to be held in the Nelson opera house next Muuday evening
assures the distinguished singer aud
the artists associated with her, one of
the largest houses ever gathered together lu Nelson. The high prices ut
which the seats had to be sold, In order to secure the attraction, did not
appaicntly deter Nelson citizens from
purchasing seats. They were anxious
of an opportunity to go at any price.
The seats held for out of town patrons
have not all been disposed of and it is
possible that some of these will be
ottered to thoso Nelson people who
have heen unuble to secure what they
desired. Madame Albaul and her
compuny are expected to arrive in
Nelson on Sunday evening. On Tuesday they will go to Rossland where
they will appear on Wednesday night
AFTER LONG DELAY���
The obligations incurred at the time
of the smallpox case In 11(00 are to be
settled in part after a delay of over a
year. It lias been arranged to puy
the acuuunts on u two-thirds basis of
which the city will pay one-half anil
the provincial authorities the balance.
At the time the accounts were incurred, the city met what was regarded as its proper shnre,aggregating between 81,1100 and 81.700. On a basis
of two-thlnls of the whole the obligations amount to some 83,700, of which
the city undertakes to pay half. The
amounts disbursed last year apply on
the settlement, however, so that the
city now has only to put up a couple
of hundred dollars to square its portion of the account. The merchants
and others who will thus secure the
major portion of their money will
doubtless be glad to huve the matter
straightened out after the long delay.
