Iu a Loudon letter published yesterday tlm quotation of tbo London and
11. C. Goldfields company's shares was
given aa 7s. (id. This must bave
beeu a clorical error on tbe part of tbe
correspondent, as the par values of the
shares is ��1 and tbey were floated at
par and bave uever fallen below par.
It* is probable that he should hnve
written tl 7s. lid. At any rate, the
shares in question wore quoted at that
rate  not long ago.
Washington, May 17. ��� As the result
of a conference at tho Foreign oflice
in London hetweon Lord Salisbury,
Sir Julian Paunecfoto, and Ambassador Ohoate, it can now bo predicted
that tho High Joint, Commission to
adjust issues between tho United Statos
aud Canada will be reassembled during tbe coming summer or early fall,
Tbis outcome is not positively assured,
but Mr. Cbnate's report of the exchanges at the Foreign Olliee certainly
conveys great encouragement to the
ollicials here and warrant the expectation that negotiations may bo again
taken up with some prospeot of reaching au arrangement. It can be stated
that if the coninisision re-convenes it
will only do so upon a complete abandonment of tho old basis, which proved
to be unsuitable to tbo erection of a
complete agreement and the Uuited
States will bave some sort of assurance
in advanoe of the nature and degree of
tbe concessions thnt may be expeoted
from the other side, the lank of which,
it is said, caused the failure of tbo
lirst negotiations.
Washington, May 17.���The boundary
u6stion is said to be the main obstacle
to an agreement, so much so, that the
commission took ils last adjournment
because nf manifest inability to ccmo
together on this noint. Since then
the tw<- governments have triod to Ret-,
lie tbii question and some progress n.is
beeu made.
A final agreement does not appear to
bo in sight and a temporary adjustment n a modus vivendi is still open,
tinder tho circumstances the offloials
concerned iu the negotiations aro favorably considering arbitration as a
means of selttement of tbo boundary
matter. If the plan could be 'fleeted
if is suid tbe commission would not
only suro of re-assembliug but it
would meet with every prospect of
winding up all outstanding difficulties
between Canada and tbe United Slates.
While tho plan of arbitration is most
Favorably entertained by ollicials, il
is not known bow far it bas gone in
the wav of negotiations with Lord Salisbury,
Washington, May 17.���Tho negotiations bave taken a new turn by tha
suggestion that tbs Alaskan boundary
queBtion be submitted to arbitration
independent of the to the issues involved, thus leaving tbe commission free
io resume its work ou tbo many othor
pending questions.
Glasgow, Mny 17.���Tbe dock laborers employed by the Anchor Line and

conference of the Anchor Line officers
an offer wns made to the' men of nine
peucn an hour but the dockers' representatives refused to accept the proposition. At a second conference, however, the Anchor Lino ollicials conceded the demands of the dockers.
Detroit, Mich., May 17.���On ueti-
tion of Frederick N. Prince, of Boston,
.lodge Swan, U. S., District Court,
today appointed Percival W, Clements
Of Rutland, Vermont, receiver ot the

In tbis country nnd ou tbo other side
difficulties aud disputes between railway companies and Inwusile companies are numerous, and sometimes the
towusite people, but usually tbe railway companies, wiu. It is not long
since friction between Moyie City
and the C. P. R. induced the lutter
company to build tbeir station some
two miles out of town, but tho Nelson
St Fort Sheppard Company have recently resorted to still moro drastic
measures at Salmo.
There has been a dispute of ancient
date between the West Kootenay Lam"
Company, who own the Salmo town-
site, and the Nelson & Fort Sheppard
Railway, of whioh tho facts appear to
bo as follows. It seems that there was
an agreement between tho two where
by the towusite company were to pay
half tho cost of erecting a depot. The
towusite company also claim that the
depot was to be eroded al a place convenient to tbeir towusite. The
depot was duly nrocted, but the town-
site people were dissatisfied with its
site. Who was in the right, it is
diffloult iu tho light of recent information to say, but the fact remains
that the towusite company, considering
the railway had not kepi to Iho agreement, declined to pay their half. And-
this is where tho "sloppy road" got
iu its deadly work.
Two or three days ago a gang of men
appeared, and preceded In take down
tbe depot, pjrmtjy ll.o piide of Salmo.
It was a substantially built frame
nnilding 75 feet by 20. They took il
to pieces and piled the timbers on cars.
In a short timo it was entirely dismantled, and now only a strip of plat
forin is left. Some of the stuff is still
nn some cars on the siding awaiting
shipment, but the bulk of the remains
of the defunct station have beeu transported to Oolville, Wash., whore tbey
will be put together again as an addition to tbo station buildings there.
Tho Nelson & Fort Sheppard has another small complication on its hands,
this time with reference to the transhipping of freight from tbo Crow's
Nest Pass, which bas resulted iu thrum porary susnension of tbe movement of coke from Fernie. It will be
remembered that tbe Northport smelter uow gets its coke from tho Crow's
Nest, and recently ordered one thousand tons. Previously it got its coke
from Fairview or Pennsylvania.
The coke was transferred from the
cars into a barge, aud from the barge
it was reloaded into the Nelson St Fort
Sheppard cars. This was a cumbersome and expensive process, aud the
railway company bas given notice it
will receive no moro coke at Five
Mile Point owing to tbe lack of facilities there. The easiest solution of the
liiliculty would be an arrangement for
Ihe transfer of traffic between the
C. P. R. nud the American line.
Tho C. P. R has already built up to
Ibe edge of the Nelson & For' Sheppard right-of-way beyond the sampling
works, and of course can go no further. Tbe Nelsou St Fort Sheppard
lino comes within abont 11(10 feet of
where the C. P. R. lino ends, and tbe
connection oould be made at trifling
expense. Negotiations are now pending for the arrangement of n transfer
nf traffic, and before long this improvement should be elfectod.
Some Further Particulars of His Tragic
London, Mav 17.���The signalman
who was on duty at Porter's Bay station statos now tbat 'be saw the Eail
of Stratford "descend the sloping end
of tbo platform, apparently watching
for the train, which was late, and
that as he express passed through the
station the deceased appealed to walk
or full on tho line. There is not tbe
slightest suggestion here of premeditated suicide. Since bis attack of
apoplexy at Windsor, the Earl has
suffered from absent-mindedness nnd

Th money by-laws of which so much
has been said in advnnco, some of
it foolishly and ill-advisodly, we believe, are now beforo tho people and
in a few days thoy will ho asked to
declare at tho polls -whether thoy wish
thorn to go into effect. Thoy will
moan an addition of sixty or seventy
thousand dollars to tho debenture
debt of the City. That will moan in
its turn a slight addition to
the present taxos. We pay a shore
of tho extra burden, and thoso who
oo.ne alter us a share ; for tbey aro long
term debouturos, and as the improvements tho niouoy is intended to provide aie all necessary aud of a permanent character, it is proper that
the next generation of citizens shall
help to pay for them. A little common
sense is all any ratopayor requires to
enable him to take the proper view of
his duty in respect to those by-laws.
Once every year we elect a Mayor and
six Aldermen to look aftor and manage corporation affairs. A fow months
ago this was done, and the selection
has since boon regarded as a very good
one. We havo an intelligent, caie-
ful, und capable Council. They bavo
been chosen to do the City's business.
and having gone into tho matters covered by the by-laws thoy bave concluded that these thousands are neces
sary to provide for the safety, comfort,
and welfare of the Oity. They have
given to these various matters much
greater consideration than the avorago
ratepayer has either time or inclination
to do, and their position enables them to
do this to batter advantage and therefore more intelligently than those who
are not charged with responsibility for
them. If we trust the men, we can
safely adopt their recommendation.
They say the money is required,
and they are more likely to know than
the reBt of us. Wo elected them to
look after these things, believing in
their fitness, and if we are wise wo
shall voto tho mouey and leave them
to expend it in tbo public interest, on
the plan indicated in tbo by inwB.
Another thing: This town cannot
afford to staud still; wa must continue
to progress or drop out of the running.
We desire to attract population and
multiply businoss. To do this we must
put the town iu good order. The
embellishments will come later on ; at
present our duty is to lay a foundation
on which a healthy, thriving town can
continue to grow without dangor of
collapse. We want a good water service, a good sewerage systom, and for
comfort all the conveniences of good
lighting. Theso are necessary if the
town is to continue to grow. If wo
fail to provide thorn, we vote ourselves
unequal to the opportunities which nature and circumstances combined have
placed in our hands.
must know who his correspondents are
before ho can allow letters to appear,
the more especially when thoy presume
as this ono does, to criticise a third
party. This rule is so old and so
widely established that wo would
have thought the very birds in tbe
air know of it.
An A. P. em-respondent in London
is assured that tbe Washington negotiations have not beeu broken off or endangered, and adds that if matters
proceed as smoothly as at present Kir
Julian Paunoefote'S return to Washington will bo signalised by Ihe conclusion of a tmaty retracting evory
question in dispute, in a manner hon-
orablo and pleasing to all concerned.
What Dr. Doolittle has dono towards
providing the town with a bicycle path
affords all of ub a most useful little object lesson. Givon a liberal supply of
energy, with determination to match,
and any person who knows exactly
���what is wanted can set about getting
it in quick order. There was nothing
especially difficult, and therefore extraordinary, in raising in a day a hundred and fifty or two hundred doll-irB
in a town liko Nelson, whoso people
are distinguished lor their i ublic
spirit nnd generosity; all it wanted
was a man with a purpose, aud tho
man presented himself in tho person of
Dr. Dooli*te. Another man with a
similar purpose would havo done the
same, but unfortunately few of us take
the trouble to enthusiate the purpose,
or, having it, are fihy in putting it to
praotical use. Perhaps now that we
see how simple it all is some of us
will be encouraged to imitate the Doc
tor when another occasion presents itself.
Tbe Deadman's Island squabble has
not been an elevating or inspiring one,
and thero wero doubtless follies and
faults on both aides. But there can be
no question of thu entire propriety of
the latest act in the little drama.
Neither Mr. Ludgate nor any other
person cau bo permitted for oue moment to resist the authority of the law.
He may havo his pockets full of Dominion leases, but that does not make
him superior to tho law in British Columbia. The authorities are to be commended for acting with snob decision,
and if Mr. Ludgate is left to cool bis
heelB in jail it will serve him right.

Many Children Deprived of
Viotoria CrJ7ornui3!it Has Takra No Stops
to Havo tlio School Put iu
Proper  Condition,
Still nothing lias 1-een dono nli-iut
tho public aohool.   To tho first
10 tho Victoria Government on tho sm,
.loot uo answer wns received. When
word was wired that unless something was done the two rooms for junior children must be clusod, a letter
was finally sent saying to ^ncl particulars liy mail. This was dono and still
the rooms remain as bofore, and [somo
120 or more children who should bo nt-
tending school aro lott. to play in tho
streets all day.  ���
B It Booms strange that such a condition of things can exist in a civilized
cominuuity. In one small town, Wardner, B. 0., before there wns any assurance of tlie iK'i'iiianoney of tho
town, tho Government built a comfortable school house, properly fitted
up and equipped'. Before the sobotl
house was finished, the railway being
finished and the floating population
thnt accompanies railway construction
having  moved    on    there   -were  not
11 ore than a dozen obildren, if that of
school nuo in tho town, nnd of those,
the families of two stayed iu Wardner
bicnuse of the school,
Nelson, with considerably over n
hundred children that, are deprived of
schooling advantages because there is
110 school rooms for them to gu to,
nnd with tlie hundreds that are attending badly crowded rooms, is
pot off from month to month with
trivial excuses.
Most of tho children thus turned out
of school have comfortable hemes nud
parents who cm look after them, but a
large percentage owing to their parents working all day or through sickness and other causes not being able to
soo to them aro simply turned loose in
the streets from morning till night
learning the language nud tastes that
tbe streets teach. Aro tbe parents who
can afford it to bo forced to send tbeir
children to other cities or to the little
mining camps and railway construe
tion towns for education, and if so
what are the ones to do who ct.niiot
afford to scud their children away, are
questions that are asked every day.
Nelson -possesses so many advantages
ns n residential city thnt it, seems
a shame that tbe school, one of tbe
first and principal requirements of an
up-to-date city should be larking.
J (f it wns only a delay of a few weeks
that had occmred since the matter was
first mndo prominent it would not lie
so bad, but one month has followed
another, culniinatiug in tho closing of
the two worst rooms on May 1.
Nearly thrto weeks have passed by
since then, bnt nothing has been
dono. and nt present thore are apparently no prospects of anything being
done in the near torture.
How manv families tire residing in
other towns that would bo living here
if tho school had beeu put in proper
condition some months ago it wculd be
hard to say, but undoubtedly thoy are
not few.
One instanci (and thero aro probably
many similar ones) is hore given. A
railway contractor on tbo Nelson-Bed
lington Railway brought his wife and
children hero from Winnipeg intending tn have them reside here and attend school, so that they would bo near
him. Ho had beon in Nolson several
times and liked it very much aud
brought on his family nover doubting
of the educational facilities.
Thoy stayed hero ono week, nnd then
tbo family wns sent back to Winnipeg, so thnt the ehildien could got proper schooling.
The condition of affairs tbat caused
thnt is ono thnt nIToots not only parents, tint every-business man and citi
zen of Nolson.

Dent. Mayor Neelands met the mem

Yesterday afternoon a Nelson lady
wi died to show a friend som i of Ho

Three Nelson Men Resident
Work Done on the Ivanhoe and Sunshine
Groups���Othor Slocan Notes���
An Explanation.
Tho Pom Gold Milling Company
has linen reorganized, und Iho head
oflioe transferred from Vancouver to
Nelson. Mr. Urigstock is tho secretary of the newly organized company,
aud he is expected here today or tomorrow. Three well known gentlemen have been elected as resident directors, Messrs. J. J. Campbell,
George Kydd, and P. W. Peters. An
oflice has been provisionally engaged
in tho Hillyer block, and a mooting
will shortly be held to discuss the best
method of continuing the operations
of the mine. The Pern, it will be
remembered, is situated at Hall Sid
ing aud is a free milliug proposition.
The ore has changed slightly in char
acter with depth, and last autumn a
chlorination plant was put iu to extract values which escaped the stamps
and the vanners. The miue has already paid several dividends.
Mr. Phil Hiokey, manager of the
Minnostota Silvor Mining Company
was in town yesterday, when a Miner
reporter had a talk with him about his
company's properties. The company
aro operating the Ivanhoe aud Sun-
shiue groups, comprising 10 claims iu
all, which adjoin those well kuown
mines the Ruth and the Slocan Star.
On the Sunshine a cross-nut driven
from the lower tunnel struck a very
good body of ore last winter. A drift
has been run along.this vein for about
175 feet, aud the good values are maintained. This ore body averages about
two feet in width and is a parallel
veiu to the Queen Bess vein further
sonth. On the Ivanhoe about 5,800
feet of development work hns been
done, and a very large quantity of ore
has been blocked out, but no sloping
has beeu done, the ore shipped lust
wiutor baviug boeu taken out in the
course of development work. There is
a largo amount of cloau oro, as well as
concentrating ore in sight*. The ore
of those properties averages about 1(0
ouunces in silver, and no less than (is
per cent. lead. It is intended to erect
a 100-tou concentrator on the properties next summer.
It is also intended to eroct a concentrator on the Slocan Star, while the
uew concentrator at tho Ruth mine has
already been begun, and the foundation
timbers were being hanled in the other
day. The Noble Pivo is lookiug very
well, as is tho Queen Bess. The Payue
is shipping about 50 tous a day, ai:d
tho Last Chauce about 20 tous. The
Idaho and the Reco are not shipping
at present owing to the state of the
roads. It is impossible to rawhide
any longer and tho snow has not gone
off sufficiently to permit of pacing or
hauling oro in wagons. For this reason this time of the yenr is always
rather quiet in the Slocan, though
otherwise everything is   looking well.
As the anuoucomout has been made
that the Governmeut of British Columbia purpose forcing the Amendment
to the Mctalliforous Mines Inspection
Act, making eight hours a working
day for those employed underground
in metalliferous mines; Sec. lit.���"No
person shall be employed underground
in any metalliferous miue for more
than eight hours in every twenty-four
hours;" the undersigned as represent.
ing one of the tw<i parties mainly
affected, consider it advisable to make
publio their views on the situation
created by'this uncalled for legislation,
and to indicate what their line of action must inevitably be.
While the noderslgood am determined to respect and adliero to the laws of
tho Province, it may bo pointed out
that this law is far reaching in the
injuries it must infliot upou tho mining interests of the Province, and on
the amount of wages earned by tlie
It moans reducing the hours of labor
in tho mines from 20 hours a dny to
Hi hours, us mnny of tho mines are so
circumstanced that three shifts cannot bo worked to advantage. This
meuus a reduction of 20 per cent in
the amount of the production of many
mi es, aud a reduction of 20 per cent
iu the development work boiug carried ou in tho mines prepnring for
production and a reduction in the supplies used in tne niiLes.
The most amicable relations existed, and still exist, between the em
ployers and employed at tho mines.
The meu wero earning good wages,
equal to any being paid in ramps in
the Uuited Stutes, and higher thau
thoso paid in many,und they were rendering good    services for tliese   wages.
If unv discontent was rife at the existing state of affairs, it was not generally known. It is therefore deeply
to bo regretted thut the Legislature
has see fit disturb the existing bar-
mony, to interfere with tho growing
prosperity of the miniug diftricts,
to reduce the -wages oarniug power of
tho men employed, and to interfere
with tho free light of contract hithor-
to enjoyed.
As to tho future, after the 1st of
June next, at the minns represented
by the undersigned, the standard rate
of wages that will bo paid to skilled
miners for an eight hours working day
will bo three dollars ($3.00), and other
labor will necessarily bu also paid for
according to the time worked.
