Liter. ���Apia, Samoan "Islands,
March 2!1, via Auckland, N. Z., March
20.��� The troubles growiug out of the
election of a King of Samoa have taken
a more serions turn, and resulted in a
bombardment of the native villages
along the shore by the United States
cruiser Philadelphia, Admiral Kautz
commanding, and the British cruisers
Porpoise and Royalist. The bombardment has continued intermittently for
eight days, several villages have been
burned, and there have been a number
of casualties, among the British and
American sailors and marines. As
yet it is impossible to estimate the
number of  natives killed   or   injured.
As Mataafa aud his chiefs, constituting the provisional governmeut, continued to defy the treaty after the arrival of the Philadelphia, Admiral
Kautz snmomued the various cousuls
and the senior naval officers to a conference an heard tin- .,** .r ..l.i-ii iho
whole situation was carefully can
vassed. The upshot was a resolution
to dismiss the provisional government, and Admiral Kautz issued a
proclamation calling upou Mataafa
evacuate Mulinnu, lhe town ha had
made his headquarters, aud went into
the interior.
The German consul at Apia issued a
proclamation supplementing the one
he had issued several weeks before, upholding the provisional government.
As a result of this the Mataafans assembled in large force and hemmed in
the town. The British cruiser Royalist brought the Malietoa prisoners
from the island to wbioh they had
been transferred by the provisional
government. The Americans then for
tified Mulinnu wheie 2,000 Mnlietoni s
took refuge. The rebels, the adherents
of Mataafa, barricaded the road�� in
the Proviuce and seized the houses.
An ultimatum was then issued to
them to evacuate and threatening
'';. J'lit   of refusal with a
bombardment, to commence at !
o'clock in the afternoon of March 16.
This was ignored, nnd the rebels
commenced nn attack in the direction of tho United States nnd British
consulates. The Philadelphia, Porpoise and Royalist opeued fire upon the
distant villages. There was great difficulty iu locating lhe enemy, owing to
the dense forests, but several shore
villages were soon iu flames.
A defective shell fiom the Philadelphia exploded near the American
consulate but the marines outside escaped. A fragment struck the leg of
Private Budge, shattering it so badly
as to necessitate amputation. Another fragment struck the German con
salute smashing ll.e roof. The <!or-
iiians then went on board lln German
cruiser Falk. During the night the
rebels made a hot. attack on the town,
killing three British gallon, A British marine was shot in the leg by a
sentry of his own party and another
was shotjin the feet, while an American sentry was killed. Thn bombardment continue', mid the inhabitants
of the town took refugo on the Royalist, greatly orowding the vessel.
Many people were leaving Samoa, the
captain of the Royalist urging them
to go, so as not to interfere with the
military operations.
The Porpoise has shelled the villages east aud west of Apia and captured many boats. Tlie British and
Americans are fighting splendidly together bnt there is a .bitter feeling
against tho Germans. Two mon, a
British aud a German subject, have
heen arrested as spies. Tho bombardment of the junglo was tor a time
very hot.
If Sho Approves, the   Modus  Vivendi
Will Stand.
Washington, March 29.���The modus
viveudi to be recognized on the Alaskan boundary, as proposed by the
United States, has been referred to the
Canadian authorities, as well as to
the British Foreign Office, aud until
word conies from both quarters, it
will not be knowu whether the modus
viveudi is to be established. The impression prevails, however, thnt as
soon as Canada has expressed approval
the British Foreign Office will speedily give  her official assent.

Montreal, March 2i).���A Star cable
from Londou says: Lord Strathcona

Another private bill, now before Ihe.
House of Commons, comprls holders

Strathcona hns represented to tho Colonial Office that this measure would
impose an invidious distinction upon
Universities of such a high position as
Toronto aud MoGill. The bill was
brought in by the High University
authorities, including Sir John Lubbock aud Mr. Carson, Q. C., who
feel strongly that some step is necessary to prevent tlie parade hero of
British degrees inferior to those of
the Colonial Universities.
; Brussels, March 20.���There were
some exciting scenes in the Chamber of
Deputies today, in connection with
the discussion of the recent expulsiou
from Belgium of a former priest, C.
Sarbouiiell, a native of France, whose
lectures on socialism had caused considerable objections. The socialist
members interpellated the Government, nnd the Rightist deputies tried
to closo the debate. Tbis led to violent Socialist protests, during which
the speakers attacked the King and the
Government generally, leading to much
uproar. Eventually the President of
the Chamber declared the sitting suspended and the Socialists and Leftists
resigned in a body,and rushed towards
the Rightists flourishing their fists.
Though actual fijAtinsr ivas avoidwJ,
the uproar was uEvxiciiuig. -"SW*. -*!��riTC*

The spectators appealed to the Socialists, who told them to remain. This
caused some of the spectators to resist
the ushers, and soldiers had to be summoned to clear the galleries, resulting
in ;i series of excitiug scuttles. In the
meanwhile the deputies ou the floor
continued to vituperate, but the house
was eventually cleared and the sitting
was suspended for au honr, during
whioh M. Bohune, a member of the
right and M. Journess, Socialist, exchanged challenges to fight a duel.

authorities had notified the company
that they proposed to terminate tho o\-
isting agieement in July next, adding, that at the present time negotiations were advancing regarding the

Loudon, Mnroh 29.���A deputation
representing the Interuatioual Peace
Crusade, including the bishops of London and Rochester,   Mr.    William   T.
Stead and a number of momberB of
Parliament waited upon Mr. A. J.
Balfour, the First Lord of the Treasury aud acting Minister of Foreign
Affairs duriug the absence of his uncle, tho Marquis of Salisbury, in order to urge that Her Majesty's Government instruct its representatives at
the Czar's pence conference to effectually support all practical proposals in
the direction of disarmament and ar-
Iu reply Mr. Balfour promised the
most, hearty sympathy with the wishes
of the delegation. Personally, he
added, he took a sanguine view of the
jjossjbility of the diminution of war,
aud, ho continued, there were few
things ho regretted more than the fact
that the scheme for general arbitration
between Great Britain aud the United
States had fallen through, though he
was well convinced that with two
snch communities, having so much in
common, the scheme, though defen-ed,
wus not defeated, and that general
arbitration would be adopted between
them, even if   it   were   not  generally
adopted throughout the world.

London, March 29.���A representative of the Associated Press had an interview with Sir Thomas Linton,
owner of tho challenger for the America cup. He said the Shamrock would
probably be launched duriug the first
week of Juno. She was not as ad-
vanood as he hoped, however, and he
was unable to fix the date for her
launching, which would be an entirely
private function. The owner of the
shamrock also said the decision as to
tho mode of crossing the Atlantic
would rest with the Captain of the
Shamrock and her builders. Every-
thing, however, would be done strictly
according to the rules of the Cup Competitions, and nothing in the nature of
sharp practice would be attempted.

New York, March 29. ��� A gray-whis-
kered old man, small lu stature, wearing specti cles and a light twoed inver-
ness, landed from the White Star
liuer Majestic this evening. The
stranger gave his name as J. L. Kipling and in reply to a chance question
said he was the father of Rudyard
Kipliug, tho sict uovelist and poet.
He said that be had traveled across
the ocean to see his sick sou and that
upon reaching Quarantine he had received a message that the patient was
rapidly improving.
About himself the old gentlemen declined to speak, but when the question
of the "White Mau's Bntdeu" wai
touched, ho remarked: "I live in a
country place aud of course anything
I could say regarding expansion cannot be regarded as official in any sense.
But. I can tell you how tho plain people of England think on the subject.
They are w.itching with the most intense inteiosr every move that the
United States is making in the Philippines. Ttiey want the United
States to hold the colonies which it has
wrested from Spain and open them
up to the business of the   world."
After getting his luggage passed Mr.
Kipliug hurried to the Grenoble Hotel.
Uo reached the hotel   at   1 :30   o'clock
and was nt oueo   taken   to   the   room
where his distinguished son is ill.

Tho father wus almost overcome by
emotion as he embraced his son, and
it was somo minutes before he was
quite calm enough to converse. The
tut her did not remain more than half
an hour. It was thought best by the
physicians and nurses not to submit
the sou to too great a strain, and the
elder Kipling readily acquiesced in the
decision. He said he would return to
the hotel tomorrow morning.

himself of thai charge before this
suit should  be   heard,  that   important
witnesses, whom ho requires on the

British Columbia, that he cannot now
properly prepare for his trial, and

Between the suggestions made by Mr
Bnohanau,    President  of    the  Kaslo
Hoard of Trade, and by Mr. .1. .1.
Campbell of the Hull Mines Company,
the Government at Ottawa ought to be
tious over American. He is intensely
Cuiiudiau, nnd therefore liable to be
a little biased ; but he is ulso u man
of excellent judgment in such things,
ami his opinion is the right one. Cauada lias superior institutions, and
whether tints or Tories are in it is ou
the whole will governed. We huve a
tine country, und nre doing well. But
the postal arrangements iu the Kootenay are probably tho worst in the
world ;lho worst, that is, for a countiy
supposed to be governed ou enlightened
and progressive principles. We are
sorry tbo Postmaster General has failed
to observt this. He must he subject
to some hypnotic iuUuenco fur enough
bus beeu said ou the matter to arouse
the attention of the dead.
The report, indeed, is careful lo
avoid grievances of ull kinds. That
is a wny the politicians have. Instead of grievances, it gives promi
Ueuce lo u elnim that the deficit has
been reduced from (781,000 in 1890-117
to $-17,000 in 1897-98. That is anotner
way the politicians have ; they love
to sound their own praises, especially
if at the expense of their opponents.
Mv. Foster who knows something of
the public accounts, says it is luipos
sible to make good this claim by any
recogui/.ed process of figuring; hut
thero it is. on the first page of the re
port, and much will be made of it at
the next election.
The report has its political features,
of course, but it also contains some
interesting bits of  information.    One
able   to   deal   intelligently   with   the | of the most curious is   that   iu   refer-
question thut is of   such vital moment : cnoe to dead letters.      It seems incrtid-
to the lend industry of this Proviuce.
It is but slightly removed from a
crime to lefuse to take the Stops ntvps-
nary to insure the development of the
enormous lead resources of the Slooan
region. Tbey are rich beyond computation, but thoy lie unproductive be-
cause the Government are undecided
how to act in respect to them, Mr.
Campbell says thai the industry will be
materially helped if Parliament will
but permit the tree admission of lead
mined and smelted here but refined
in the United States Mr Buchanan
suggests two or three courses ; one a
bounty on lend, another an increase of
duty on foreign lead, and a third an
arrangement by which lead mined and
smelted in Canada can be refined in
bond and returned free ol duty, which
is identical with Mr. Campbell's
Both of these gentlemen ure perfect y
familiar with the lsad qnestiou in all
its phases They kuow exactly what
is required to give life to the industry,
and lhe men at QttSV a- who do not
know are expeoted to have the good
sense to listen to (hen),
Ptrhaps they will. Unfortunately
the present is not an opportune time

Court Has Over-Ruled 1hs Objections of
of the Miaority Creditors of
the Estate.
It will be remembered that nt the
last meeting of the creditors of the T.
\V. Gray estate, an ofl'er was made by
Alderman Charles Hillyer of $16,000
for the sawmill and stook on hand,
Out of 02 (iretlitora present, a large
majority favored the sale to Mr. Hillyer, the figures being 43 in favor and
19 against. Messrs. Macdonald and
Johnson, however, acting on behalf
of the Bunk of Halifax, thu Braden
Bros., nnd most of the other dissatisfied creditors opposed the snle. Mr.
T. M. Ward, the assignee, accordingly
began confirmation procceedings, with
a view to having the legality of the
salo placed beyond dispute.
Yesterday, however, Messrs. Taylor
and Hannington, counsel for Mr.
Gray, received a telegram from Alderman Hillyer to the effect that the
Judge hud deoided thnt in view
of the overwhelming majority in favor
of the sale, the assignee must give a
title to the property at once. No order
wns considered necessary by the
court. The result ia that Mr. Hillyer
becomes owner of tho saw mill and
its appurtenances, aud one of Nelson's
important industries will soon be
ouco again in full operation.

The Force nt Last Will Be on An Efficient   Basis.
A little over a year ago Cantaiu A.
E. Hodgins received instructions to
raise a company of riflemen in Nelson,
Similar compmies were to be raised
in Rossland, Revelstoke and Kamloops, the whole to form a regiment
called the South Kootenay Rifles.
The company was speedily raised,
and the authorities duly notified of
the fact. Regular drilling began,
and after a few months, Caotain Hodgins' Commission was gazetted ; but
the men had no arms, am' nothing
seemed able to induce the department
to forward them. At last about two
months ago the rifles arrived, and
drilling recommenced with renewed
vigor, though still the force had no
It would seem, however, that all
difficulties are at last at an end, for
yesterday Captain Hodgins reoeivod a
letter from Mr. Howitt Bostock stating
that all arrangements had been math
foi the supply and despatch of the iie-
cessary uniforms and kit, which
should arrive any day now. Iu case
of their not coming immediately, ti
letter from Oaptaiu Hodgins to'the
Dupartuieut will suffice.

An Attempt to   Prove   Mrs.   Mallette
Runs  a  Gambling House.    JJJ;
The whole of yesterday afternoon
was taken up at the Police Court in
hearing an information laid against
Mrs. Mallette of the Kootenay Until,
for keeping a gambling house.
It appears that the prosecutor went
into the Kootenay on the 25th and
challenged the bartender who was alsi
au Italian, to play a game called
'' tricks.'' The bartender was 'stuck,'
whoreupou Colsinio wanted to pay him
another game for $13 a side. The bartender demurred, but eventually they
put up $13 apiece aud agreed to play
for drinks for the house. Tho house
was crowded, there being about* 75 persons present. They played, Oolosimo
lost, and the spectators imbibed at hi.-
expense. Oolosimo afterwards lain
this information.
The case for the prosecution closed
yesterday, aud several witnesses for

A Largo Oongrogatiou  in St. Saviours
Church Last Evening.
Yesterday being Wednesday in Holy
Woek there was service in " St. Saviour's church lust evening. An especially iittructive musical programme
had been arranged and tlio bundsome
edifice was completely filled. In its
completed   condition     St.    Saviour's
church is one' of the most tasty buildings ot its kind in tho Province and
the congregation can congratulate
itself on possession of it. Last evening's service was conducted by Rev.
Mr. Rhodes and the musical portion
was under the management of Mr. W.
F. Brougham, the choir being \augmented by the addition of several
members of the Nelson Musical Society. Mr. Brougham deserves great
credit for the earnest manner in
which he has worked to ussure tho
success of the service and that it was a
success is the best praise ho can receive. The service opened with an
autiphone for Palm Sunday by Mr.
Brougham anil was followed by a
hymn aud the Benediotns. The Benedict us was an old Gregorian chant, as
old as English Christianity for it dates
from the time of St. Augnstin, the
first missionary bishop to Eugland.
Two selections from Gounod, "Offer
tory from tha Messe Solennello" and
"All Ye Who Weep" wero splendidly
given. As a solo Mrs. Brougham
sang, "Ho Was Despised" from Handel's Messiah. Her rich, pure and
powerful voice aud artistic interpretation of the selection greatly charmed
the cougregatiou. The chorus,
"Surely He Hath Borue Our Griefs"
was sung by the choir and was followed by the solo and chorus from the
Crucifixion by Spohr "Tnough all
thy friends forsake thee.'' Mrs. W.
A. Macdonald sung the solo, her sweet
voice proving 7ery pleasing. Handel's
"Behold the Lamb of God" and
Steiner's Sevenfold "Amen" were
the other selections. The singing of
the choir was of a high class nature,
and it reflects great credit on Nelsou
that she possesses musicians who undertake and carry to a successful issue the rendering of such ambitions
selections. An orchestra greatly assisted. A goodly collection in aid of tbe
building fund of the church was taken

thority for
"The mines

shifts at the same ia;e
it is expected that iLe
Hi'Uni'ssv,    Secretary   of
Miner's   L'nion,   is  au
the following   statement.
at Rossland have reduced
of   work   to   eight-hour
of wages,   and
Minis of   Nel
son will follow suit."
On Tuesday evening Mr. U. 0.
Buchanan informed 'he Board of Trade
that there was a well defined rumor
abroad that the miners of Slocan district on May 1st intended ro strike
for au eight-hour dnv at the old rate
of wages, and that the mine owners
intended to reply by closing down the
mines. but Mr. Ile.messy's statement would appear lo show that the
Rosslaud mine owners intend to submit quietly to the ini posit ion of the
extra wage.
Further advices from Rossland are
eagerly awaired. for it i-* generally
thought here that the attitude of Ross
laud in rhe matter will have an important influence on the issue of the
affair. It is kno.*.u that the Ross
land Union is largely responsible for
the alteration iu tin* act.
Accordingly The Miner telegraphed
Rossland for information last night,
aud received the following reply froru
an authentic source :
Rossland, K (J., March 20���"Tbe
eight-hour law which w s passed by
rhe last legislature is being oomplied
with in every particular, and -wages
have not been reduce.!. In some of
the mines there aro uow three eight
hour shifts and the men stay down in
the mine and ear their lunch while
there. 1"> minutes beius allowed for
this. The men most be at their post
when the whistle blows ami must nut
not leave till then
"In other mines ami prospects there
are only two shifrs of eight-hoars each
ami a lay off of lour hour* between.
The mine owners were liy no means
pleased with the law, but nnani
mously decided to obey it."

It has been learn *d from a thoroughly reliable source that, tlie Movie
aud Queen of the Hill- have been sold,
au English syndicate being tlie purchaser, A few davs ago N. A. Wai-
liuger, the resident agent for the

ver, one of the principal owners, srat-
iug that the miue bad been sold to an
English syndicate, It is also said tha'
uctive work will begin on the property
within 80 days.
The Moyie and Queen of the Hills
are situated about midwny between
the .Lake Shore and St. Eugene mines,
aud are traversed by rhe same ledge
About 200 feet of tunnels have been
run ou tho properties, and large bodies
of ore have been exposed on every
hand, and with the same amount of
development work promise to be a;
equally valuable as tbe Jit Eugene

direction from the North Stur, and
south west from the Sullivan. It
is reported that the above named
properties bave been purchased and

that tbe report is true, tor it is very
desirable and to .the best interests of

According to late advices from Juneau the new stamp mills being erected bv the Treadwell Mining Company

grinding away at the lew grade ore
that yields many huiidieds of thousands of dollars every year, The
number of stamps added is 750 and the
output of the mine will be materially
increased. The Al-ki and City of To-

The Eminent Piano Manufacturers
Have been attaining enormous success recently with their new Scale
Cabinet Pianos. In Ontario and Quebec provinces especially, recently
many lead-ng families have purchased these high-grade pianofortes, in
preference to those of any other Canadian maker. The trade associations which the Messrs. Nordheimer have enjoyed for over 50 years in
connection with their representation, for the Dominion of Canada, ot the
world-renowned Steinway, Chickering, and Dunham Pianos, have given
