WALKED INTO AN AMBUSH  British Convoy Captured.  Bushman Koi\ Saturday, March  81.���The British force connnanded  by colonel Broad wood, consisting  of tho 10th Hussars, Household  cavalry, horse batteries and a force  of mounted infantry under colouel  Pilcher, which had been garrisoning  Thaba Nehu, was obliged in consequence of the near approach of a  large force of Boers, to leave last  night. Colonel Broad wood marched  to tho Bloeiufontein waterworks  south of the Modder river, Avhere  he encamped at I o'clock this  morning.  At early dawn the camp was  shelled by the enemy from a near  point. Colonel Broad wood sent off  a convoy with the batteries while  the'rest of the force remained to act  as a rear guard. ' The convoy  arrived at a deep spruit where the  Boers were concealed, and the entire  body walked into an" ambush and  was captured, together with six  guns. The loss of life was not  great, since most of the British had  walked into the trap before a shot  was fired.  General Colville's division, which  left Bloemfontein early this morning, arrived here at noon and lie is  now shelling the Boors.  HIS DEATH IS NOW AVENCED  Eev. Brooks' Murderers.  Pekin, April 1. ���- The Chinese  government has settled the, controversy, arising out of the murder on  December 3rd last of the Rev. Mr.  Brooks of the Church Missionary  Society, on the following terms:  Two of the murderers will bo be-  hca'aid, one imprisoned for life, one  for ten years .and another for two  years. A memorial chapel will be  erected on the site of the murder  "and a tablet will be placed in  Canterbury cathedral, England, at  tho expense of the Chinese govern-  ; ment.  "The Rev. Mr. Brooks, at tlio time  of. his murder, was stationed -at  Ping Yin, in 'the province of Shan  1 Tung.  He was captured in that vicinity  and killed by the members of the  scdioious society known as  Boxers,  , who had beeu \ery active in destroying villages ancl slaughtering  native Christians.    The governor of  ' tho province had dispatched a foice  of cavalry to the scene of the disturbance, but the soldiers arrived  too late to save tho life of Mr.  Brooks.      ^^  Helps Out the British.  London, April 2.���-The Lisbon correspondent; of the Daily Mail says:  '"The 'Portuguese government lias  wired an order to Beira that British troops and ammunition be allowed to pass through Frealy to  Rhodesia. TJiojiiinistcr of foreign  affairs, senor Voiga Boirea, has announced in tho chamber of deputies  that the government is in possession of raihvay bonds with -which  ' to pay the award of the Delagoa  Bay railway arbitration tribunal."  The Chinese Reformer.  London, April 2, - The Peking  correspondent of tlio Daily Mail  says: "Li Hung Chung, viceroy of  Canton, recently wired the Chinese  authorities here that Kang Yu  Wei, tho reformer, had ordered  8000 uniforms in Hong Kong." The  Empress dowager was much alarmed by tho news and Li Hung  Chung has sent a formal protest to  the British governor of Hong  Kong against permitting Kang Yu  Wei's propaganda."  hotels are crowded, and train load  after train load of visitors are- arriving from the provinces. Grand  stands havo been erected in the  streets wliich are profusely decorated, and soon it will be difficult to  find space for hanging another flag.  A general holiday has been proclaimed for "Wednesday throughout  the county of Dublin. As a last attempt tit a counter attraction, the  extremists have placarded the city  with an invitation to the citizens to  join a monster procession of nationalist societies, which, according to  tho program, is to start from the  Transvaal committee room on the  night of her majesty's arrival. It  is probable that the demonstration  will be forbidden.  C. P. R. Prizes.  Montreal, April 1 -:The Canadian Pacific Railway Company lias  donated a series of handsome cash  prizes to be awarded at the "Winnipeg Twentieth Century Industrial  Exhibition next July for thoroughbred cattle bred and raised in Manitoba or the Northwest territories.  There, will be fifty prizes in all.  This is iu line with the company's  policy in encouraging the live stock  industry of the Canadian west by  the importation of thoroughbred  ,sires.   Scenes in Dublin.  Dublin, April 1.���The British  ���channel squadron has arrived off  Kingston for the queen's visit,  which is awaited with intense and  ever growing enthusiasm. Dublin  ���i rapidly filling np.   Already the  DETAILS STILUACKIND OF  Broadwood's Disaster.  London, April 2, 1:30 a. m.���Lord  Roberts' own report of the ambushing, if yet received by the war  office, has not been published and  no account of the affair is available  to the public except the dispatch  from Bushman Kop.     Nothiug  can  be said, therefore, regarding the  correct extent of the disaster.  Evidently, colouel Broadwood  thought it necessary to retire in  haste from Thaba Nehu; as he  marched all through Friday night  apparently, followed by a consider^-  able force of the enemy. The convoy and guns had to pass through  a deep spruit, which the Boers  had occupied. Six of twelve guns,  comprising two batteries, all the  wagons, and it is feared, many men,  fell into the hands of the Boers.  The hope is expressed here that  general Colville will recover the  convoy guns, but this is hardly  likely in such a difficult country,  and it is probable that the next  news will be that after a stiff fight  general Colville has extricated colonel Broadwood from his difficult  position.  It is possible that the affair may-  revive the Boer hopes."Great things  are expected by the Boers1 of the  new commander-in-chief, , Botha,  who has made his reputation  wholly during the present campaign: ' Foreign officers serving  with the Boers have expressed surprise at his clever tactics. <  Tho proof of continuing activity  in the Free State will compel greater circtnnapection on the part of  the British and will.probably delay  the march of Lord Roberts northward.  'Detailed accounts of the fight at  ivarce Siding estimate the Boer  force variously from 3000 to 5000  men. Brabant's force occupied  Kopener last Thursday unopposed.  Lord'Methuen has issued the following at Kimberley: "I havc received instructions that, if auy disturbance occurs wost of the Vaal  river, my force is to return and will  jiunish therebels immediately.  Inter-Varsity Boat Race.  TIio_eight-onred racejjotweenjthe  Ciiiubridge aud Oxford universities  was rowed on the Thames last Saturday, and resulted in an easy victory for Cambridge who won by 20  lengths in 18 minutes, 47 seconds,  thus tiding tho record time The  Can tabs were never pressed, and  in a moro closely contested race,  would easily liave beaten the record. The race has been rowed  continuously since 1810, and Cain-  bridge now lias 21 races to her  credit and Oxford 30. Cambridge  also won last year, but prior to 1809  she had not secured a race since  1889 when Gardiner, the famous  Emmanuel college oarsman,stroked  the eight to victory. There was  dead heat in 1S77. Up to Saturday's race the record had,been held  by Oxford, who, iu 1803, beat Cambridge but 2] lengths in 18 minutes  47 seconds.  THE EQERWARAS IT SEEMED  Yesterday Morning.  New   York, April  1.���Isaac N.  Ford  reviews   the   South  African  war situation in his cable dispatch  to the Tribune filed at 1 o'clock this  morning.   He  says:   "The details  of general Tucker's clearance of the  kopjes in front of the British positions confirm the impression that  the Boers were not malting a serious attempt to harass general Roberts' army.   They had sent forward  au advance guard to intimidate the  burghers who were either surrendering  their  arms  or  returning  to  their   farms;'and   to   enable   Mr.  Steyn to keep up appearances as a  president with a republic behind  him.   General Tucker found an inferior force entrenched, and planned  the battle in good style.   Artillery  fire was massed upon the Boer positions and the cavalry brigades were  sent   round   oh   the   flanks.    The  Boers hardly waited long enough to  enable general Tucker to carry out  these   scientific   evolutions.    They  fell back upon the main laager; at  Brandfort and, according to general  Roberts' second   message,  are retreating still further.  ;The Britisli outposts have now  been advanced near Brandfort and  thelburghers in the cehtrardistric^s  Roberts' Tribute to Joubert,  Br.OEur'ONTBiN, Friday, March,30.  ���Lord Roberts has sent the following dispatch to president Kruger:  "Have just heard of the death of  geueral Joubeit, and desire to offer  my sincere condolence upon the sad  event. Would ask you to convey  to general Joubert's family au expression or my most respectful  sympathy with their bereavement,  and to assure them also from me,  that all ranks of her majesty's  forces share my feelings of deep  regret at the sudden and untimely  end of so distinguished a general,  who devoted his life x,o the service  of his country, and whose personal  gallantry was only surpassed by  his humane conduct and chivalrous  hearing under all circumstances.  of;the Free Stat6 Have been warned'  that resistance is hopeless..... The  casualties on the British side were  about one hundred and seventy  with a large proportion of wounded. ��� ".."<  Rudyard Kipling was one of the  spectators of the: battle, and the  colonials displayed great ^gallantry.  Otherwise there is little news  from the theatre of war. There  are details of colonel Bethune's  movement towards Helpmaaker  wliich is now described as a reconnaissance in force. There is also  an official dispatch from colonel  Baden-Powell giving an encouraging account of-the health 'of the  garrison, and reporting that the  supplies of food"' and ammunition  are holding out. The correspondents' reports are naturally colored  by tho intense eagerness, of the  garrison to be released from an investment which has become a , terrible bore. Baden-Powell is a soldier whose fortitude is proof  against the ennui of a protracted  siege, and whose motto is "patience." His talent for 'versatility  is illustrated by his experiments  in finance. He has introduced a  paper money system in the Mafeking district, and is highly pleased  -with the result.  The facility with which the Boer  outposts have Jbeen driven back  from the front of Tucker's division,  is proof that geueral Roberts will  not have much difficulty in turning  the enemy's positions and marching  on to Pretoria. The whole facts  serve to explain the inaction of his  army, One is the climate, on the  verge of a_South .African _winter._  While the days are warm, there is  a rapid fall of temperature after  sunset, and a lack of thick clothing  and underwear expose the men to  pneumonia. Geueral Roberts knows  this and is waiting for a fresh  equipment of clothing for his  soldiers. Secondly, the conversion  of Bloemfontein into an advanced  base of supplies for an army of  over sixty thousand men requires  time. Remounts for a third cavalry  force are needed, according to private letters from the front, forage  for the future operations of tiie  cavalry is indispensable and the  grass is disappearing from the veldt.  General Roberts irwaitiug until he  can be thoroughly prepared for  another strategic movement.  ,    Liberal Delegates from Kaslo.  Kaslo, April 1.���[Special* to The  Tribune.]���A peculiar quartette was  chosen on Saturday night to represent the Kaslo Liberals at the Vancouver convention. D, C. McGregor,  G. O. Buchanan, George T. Kane  and John MacDonald are delegates,  with Robert McLean and J. R. Ryan  alternates. The two iirst named  are supposed to be bitterly opposed  to "Joe" Martin, while ex-mayor  Kane and "Lardo Jack" McDonald  are admirers of the premier. The  delegates were given a free hand  and may vote as the spirit moves  them.  duct the war. It is a legitimate  mode and the most ^effective for  Boer purposes. So long as the  Boer army keeps the field such attacks | will embarrass the British,  and perhaps the best Avay to get  rid of the difficulty would be a swift  advance and decisive blows against  the main Boer army."  ANTARCTIC EXPEDITION  IS  Safe Horn? Again.  Wellington, Ni' Z, April 1.���  The exploring steamer Southern  Cross- bearing Mr. C- F. Borchgre-  vink and the survivors of "South  polar expedition fitted out in... 1808  by SirGeorge Newnes of London,  arrived today ati: Campbell town,,  near Bluff harbor, ^N,Z.

London, April 2.���-Spencer Wilkinson in tho "Morning Post says :  " The attack on Thaba Nehu and  the convoy is a sample of the mode  in which the Boors will try to eon-  equipment of every kind and should  return for them early in 1900. Act  cording to accouiitsKpf the explorer's plans, publishedat the time he  left . Europe, Miv,' Borchgrevink's  party consisted of nine besides himself. Lieutenant 3V> Colbeck,,R. N.  It., was selected -as; first magnetic  observer to be assisted by Mr. Louis  Beriiacchi; Mr. N.-Hansen -and Mr.  Hugh Evans were chosen as zoologists and Dr. H. Kloevstad as medical officer. Mr. Fougneae was general utility man and cook. With  these went two natives"of Finland  to look after ninety dogs.; Enormous supplies of provisions were  laid in.  The expedition carried 500 Union  Jacks, which Mr. Bi.rcbgrevink "intended to plant at' frequent intervals in the new regions lie hoped to  discover. lie took also' a large  Union Jack wliich he intended to  run up on landing. This was given  him by the duke of York. On  board there was a cinematograph  with which he hoped to  get interesting pictures of  sights little dreamed of by people  in the civilized World. T Apart from  discovery and solution of unsettled  problems, the explorer expected  that tho expedition would'yield an  immediate result of practical value.  His theory ,was that the weather  forecasts for the whole of Australia  could be made from the antarctic  regioo. As good and bad times in  the "Australian colonies of Great  Britain are dependent upon the  state of the weather, the Australians themselves have taken a peculiar interest in the outcome. Mr,  Borchgievinkhad always contended  that _the work of  -anticipating  meteorological conditions in that  part of the world could not be completed until reports from the  antarctic circle could ' be made  promptly ava ilnble.<  Broke all Amateur Record.

Tho date of 3iis appointment will  start from tho time he reaches  Dawson.   Pressure too Great.  Ciiekbouko, Franco, April 1.���  The Boilera, a French torpedo boat,  exploded yesterday during her  forced draught trials, and five of  the crew were terribly burned..  One died aud another, unable to  bear the agony, jumped iuto the  sea and was drowned.  THE REVENUE FOB MARCH  Surprises the Government.  Ottawa, March 31.-���[Special to  The   Tribune.]���Canada's   revenue  continues to ascend   like   a rocket.  Big as last year's collections   were,  1000 will far surpass   them.     The  receipts for the month wliich   ends  today shows a revenue   qf   $2,847,-  3S0; as   compares   with   $2,303,204  for the same month last year, or an  increase of nearly   half   a   million  dollars for the month.   This is- the  largest    monthly   receipt   in   the  history of the   Canadian   customs  revenue.    March last year   was   a  record breaker, but this month   far.  exceeds it.    Not a little credit   of  this increase is due to the preferential tariff.    In the   course  of time  the public will learn   that  tiie   reduction of duties means an increase,  in revenue; consumers will not only  get their goods cheaper, but   their  burdens will be   lightened "by an  overflowing treasury j the result   of  a revenue-tariff when compared to  high-protective   tariff,   which not  only prohibits imports but increases prices of all that   the   consumer  has to purchase.     -  DIPLOMATIC MATTERS  AS  insane.

IN THEIR LAST LONG HOME  Plague in Australia.  SviiNEV, New South Wales, April  1.���Bleven fresh cases of bubonic  plague were officially reported today. Two additional deaths have  occurred.    Money for the Boors.  Berlin, April 1.���Dr. Leyds informs the Berlin press that 400,000  marks have been collected in Germany for the Boers.  ; Seen by Isaac Ford.  New YpRK,; April 1.���- "Foreign  affairs escape observation in London," says Isaac N. Ford, the Tribune correspondent, in his cabled  letter published in this morning's  paper, "as public attention is preoccupied with Lord Roberts' campaign and the complex questions  arising in the settlement of the  race feuds in South Africa.  "The     most     important     issue  abroad   is   the   struggle over the  German   Emperor's   naval   policy.  He will carry his point, because he  is bent upon doing it even if he   bo  ^forced to/make   many   concessions.  "The agrarians   perceive   their   advantage     and   will     insist .upon  having       treaties      and       tariffs  revised for  the   sake   of   securing  increased protection for agricultural 'products.    The centre is also  holding out and can dictate its own  terms. The kaiser has large policies  in his mind and must have a powerful fleet in order to carry them out.  "The   Delagoa    Bay    award   is  cynically regarded here as a warning that arbitration is a method of  surrendering one's case.  The award  has* 'fallen  short   of just  expectations and tends to  prejudice public  men agaiust arbitration.   The American  claims  have  suffered, without doubt, from their association  with the English claims and  have  been   cut   down    in    consequence.  There is a fixed idea on   the continent that John  Bull is a  bloated  millionaire who must be bled when  there is a convenient opportunity.  __J!The__correspondence _ over   the  'open door' question has been commented  on here  with  intelligence  aud  sympathy.    There  is a frank"  recognition of tho fact that secretary Hay has shown himself to be  a statesman  of  the  first  rank  in  taking up tho Chinese question and  treating tho letters  received from  tho powers as contracts which can  be enforced,   even   if no  punitive  measures are included in the bond.  There i.s no suggestion in the English proh.1 that president McKinley's  government has beeu carrying out  any secret arrangement with  the  foreign  office  of   adopting British  principles   of action,  on   the  contrary, tho  prevailing  idea  here is  that America has  acted from  motives*   of   enlightened   self-interest  and not for the purpose of rendering a special service to England."  Plague Subsiding.  IIonoli'lc, March 24, via San  Francisco, April l.--The board of  health has practically decided that  tlio plague has run its course. No  ca-=e has developed for over a  week. The members of the board  now feel that quarantine restrictions regarding the shipments of  merchandise from Honolulu, except  merchandise from Asiatic ports, will  be rescinded.

The Tribune is indebted to Mrs.  Hodgins for the following letter  from her husband, giving a short  account of his share in tiie memorable battle of Paardeberg, when the  British soldiers generally, the  Canadians particularly ;and A company more especially, : greatly distinguished themselves. The letter,  .which is as follows, gives a striking  idea of what fighting in South  Africa means:  "We were in the fight Sunday as  you know by now and were at it all  day.    I am perfectly well and safe.  Poor Arnold was a few feetin front  of me and exposed himself by looking through  his field glasses, and  got shot in the head.   I called to  him several times not to do it as it  drew the fire   to   our   particular  point.    Colonel Buchan, who was. a  few yards to my left, sent me back  for  reiuforcements and T   had to  crawl on my belly about 100 yards,  shoving my feet ahead and making  as little an object as I could of my  big body and long legs.    Of course,  I was a bit of a mark and when the  bullets let up for a second I was on  my feet and dodged  right and  left  until I got  coyer  and  breath  and  then I got in sight of C company,  and then back to my place in  th  front line,   This time I got good  cover and stayed there till the word  to charge  came, letting the  enemy  haAre a shot or two when I thought  i t safe to look over the ridge.   Here  we collected several of our regiment,  and we lay low giving them  the  benefit   of   several   of    our   good  marksmen and  we think1 we paid  up some  bf the  score 'for  Arnold,  When the stretcher bearers in my  company cams for Arnold they put  him on under fire and in going to the  rear with him  they were the only  'men on the veldt and we saw distinctly that a fusilade was directed  oil them and the dust flew all round  until they fell with the stretcher,  one shot-through  the leg and one  through   the  armpit  sinews.    The  Boer fire was hellish, especiaJly during the charge and our lines were all  mixed up with Cornwalls, Gordons  and the other regiment. I will write  a more detailed account when I get  time.              ,'  The Keys Handed Over.  On Saturday night the Nelson  Saw*& Planing Mills, Limited, who  had^the contract for erecting^the  Bank of Montreal building, formally handed it over'completed to A.  H. Buchanan, manager of the bank.  The contractors need not be  ashamed for their work, and the  bank manager and his staff can lay  claim to one_of the most handsome  and complete bank premises on the  Pacific Coast. The handing over  of the keys was witnessed by a  number of friends of the parties interested, and there was good cheer  and speech making, which was kept  up till about 10 o'clock. Manager  Buchanan, on behalf of the bunk,  handed each one of the meu present who helped complete the erection of the building a souvenir in  tho shape of a steel plato engraving bearing his signature in one  corner and that of Donald A. Smith  in the other. Eight years ago the  Bauk of Montreal occupied the  premises now occupied by Matheson Sc Graham. Time works changes  on some of our old-timers.  First Shoot of the Season.

New Yokk, April 1.���The  birth  of the Duchess of York's fourth  child ami third son is announced  with the usual congratulatory paragraphs in today's paper. The  Queen will be well attended with  princesses iu Ireland, and there will  be a full muster of royalty at the  first drawing room in Buckingham  Palace in May. The Queen herself  will conduct this function.  A Solemn Funeral.  ��� The last sad ceremony in connection with the Ontario Powder  Works disaster was performed  yesterday afternoon, when the remains of Harry Alex. Gervan and  William Way, the victims of the  accident, were laid to rest in the  Union cemetery with military and  fraternal honors. The scene"on the  streets as the long cortege wound  its way over the hills was perhaps  the most touching and impressive  ever witnessed in Nelson. Hundreds of citizens lined the principal  thoroughfares as the procession  filed by.  The bodies lay in the Odd Fellows' lodge rooms during the,day.  At 1.30 o'clock the Nelson company,  Rocky Mountain Rangers, paraded  some 25 strong under lieutenant G.  C. Beer, and privates McDonald,  McPherson, Boyd, Vanstone and  Jones were told off to act as pall  bearers under bugle-sergeant Sid  Foster. The detail proceeded to  Fraternity Hall, from where they  carried the casket to St. Paul's Presbyterian church, followed by the  members of the Independent Order  Oddfellows; bearing the remains of  their deceased brother, William "  Way. The Nelson Minstrels were  present to a man, aud carried walking sticks draped in crape.  At St. Paul's church Rev. James  Irvine of Rossland, who was filling  the pulpit in the absence of  the pastor; conducted the service  for the dead. The minstrels occupied the choir, and lead the singing.  They also contributed a touching  selection entitled "Good Night."*  The body of the church was occupied by the Oddfellows and citizens  generally, every inch of space being taken up.  While the service was in progress  the rifle company was drawn up  outside the building, divided  into  two   sections.    The   first was the  firing >party 12 strong under color-  sergeaiit Harry MeLeod, and the remaining men were the gun  squad.  The  latter drew  the   Maxim  gun  carriage, with the weapon removed, *  and a platform substituted  to  receive the coffin.    At  2,45  the  service within the  church  concluded,  and the pall bearers appeared with  the   caskets.    The   company    presented arms, while the body of tlieir  deceased comrade was carried down  the line and laid  on  the gun  carriage.    Then   the   commands   "Reverse   arms," Slow   march," were  given and the com pan v moved  off  with measured tread to the strains  of the Salvation Army dirge, played  by the excellent band of the local  corps.  The firing party of the militia  company led the way, followed by  the Salvation Army band. > Then  came the gun squad and ,their sad  burden. The casket enclosing the  remains of Harrv Gervan was  covered with the Union Jack, On  the top was- the dead- volunteer's  full dress head gear and side-arms.  A handsome floral wreath from tho  boys of the minstrel company also  reposed on the flag. Behind the  gun-carriage walked, James Mac-  gibbon, uncle of deceased, Thomas  MacCaramon, a cousin, and Charles  Griffin, a close friend. The minstrels were next, followed by the  L O. O. F. and the hearse containing tho second coffin. After the  hearse walked Thomas Way, a  brother of tho deceased, Daniel  Smith, proprietor of the pGWder  works; If. McPherson, local representative of the company and several of the late William Way's fellow emploi'ues who recently came  from the East with him.  On arriving at the entrance to  the cemetery, the militiamen halted, turned inward and leaned ou  arms reversed as the casket once  -more xjassed before them. Wheu  the funeral service was said, the  firing party marched to the grave  and at the sharp word of command,  fired three ringing volleys, the  soldier's tribute to the departed.  The concluding incident was when  the bugle-sergeant Foster sounded  the call "Lust Post" over the grave.  Then the company returned to the  city at a lively quickstep.  The impressive burial service of  the Oddfellows was performed over  the last resting place of William  Way and the body was laid to rest  with all the ceremony with which  the society enters its honored dead.  The entire pioceedings Were witnessed by many citizens, and no  event in the recent history of the  eity has excited such wide-spread  sorrow and sympathy. THE TRIBUNE:  NELSON B.

W\jf��  English Briar Pipes  POLITICAL   POINTERS.  The Grit push get closer to the  common people than tlieir opponents in the Tory force. On Saturday night the Grit meeting was  wide open to everybody, and Dave  McBeath and Bill McLean were  seated side by side, the one being as  stalwart a Conservative as the other  is a stubborn Liberal.  The mine owners are running C.  II. Mackintosh as their candidate in  the Rossland riding and J. Roderick  Robertson is to be the candidate in  the Nelson riding. Both cannot be  the next premier, even if elected,  but that is the position both believe thoy are by nature fitted for.  With J. Roderick Robertson and  G. Frank Beer and John Elliot as  candidates, respectively, of the  Mine Owners' Own, Liberal and  Conservative parties, the business  men and wage workers might slip  in a candidate broad enough to  represent all the people except the  politicians.  Mayor. Hardy of Greenwood, if  he could be induced to accept a  nomination, could give Mackintosh  cards and spades and beat him in  Rossland riding. Mackintosh hasn't  got sense enough to spot a policeman unless he is in uniform.  w.  A. THURMAN  Tobacconist.  Martiu will capture the Liberal  convention as sure as it meets. He  Jias forty straight fighters from  Vancouver and over half the Victoria delegates are known to be  favorable to him. Every one of  the up-country delegations will  have Martin men among them. East  Kootenay is solid for Martin. Men  who attend a convention, if they  are honorable, should abide by a decision of a majority. Liberals who  do not Avant to have "Joe" swallow  them and the party should not be  in Vancouver on the oth instant.  Mr  Xti  Hi  Xti  _\,'__' ___'*?

Small Profit Prices. 269   BAKER   STREET.  ��to QCrthmte*  ' ���������i ��� ���������" >~���  This secretary,of the Mine Owners' Association,  Roderick   Fiulay-  son Tolmie, when at,   Grand  Forks  last week, is   reported   as     declaring that the  association   of  which  he is secretary would take   a hand  in the coming election, and  that   a  "pronouncement"' would   be issued  in duo   time.     The    mine owners  .have the same   right   to   take an  activcTpivrt" in"an election as~ "other"  people, and no doubt they  can  get  their " pronouncement" inserted  in  the columns of many  of the news-  papeis iu the province. Their "pronouncement" will contain but   one  plank.    The one plank   will   read:  "We are opposed to   any   legislation thab interferes with our  right  to hire and work whom wo   pletibe,  when   wo     please,   and   how   Ave  please."   The mine owners  tlo not  care a copper cent for any  interest  except  their   own.      The greatest  good to the greatest   number   is  a  meaningless phrase to them.  he reserved the right to pay surface men from $2.50 to $3, according to their worth." He claimed, so  it is said, that .he had to give \eva-  ploymeut to many men who,  through age or other 'causes, were  unable to eani $3 a clay, and that  it would be unfair to compel him  to either discharge these' men or  pay them more than they were  worth. If the adjustment of existing differences has got that near  a-settlement atthe Granite,���surely  sensible men like captain Duncan  aud his miners should be able to  make a trade "without any great  amount of haggling.

The   mine  managers     raised     the  wages 25 cents a day,   but   at   the  same time raised the price of boaidi  25 cents a   day.     This   concession  wa.s not considered an  adoption  of  the     Slocan     standard   Scale    of  Wages, and the mine  workers   are  still holding out for  the   following  scale":   Machine men $3.50   a   day,  hammermen $3.25, and $3.00 a  day  for muckers, witii a   deduction   of  $1 per day for   board   all   round.  Jt was rumored on Saturday   night  that captain Duncan of the Granite  had agreed to pay all his  muckers  underground the $3 rate, but that  The Liberals of Xelson have declared against a party line light and  against "Joe" Martin for leader,  which was a foregone conclusion.  But the party is not all.of one way  of thinking, -by any means. Ex-  uldurman Beer wants to make the  light on party lines, and Michael  Mi-Andrews is'for " Joe " Martin for  leader. These two gentlemen wield  considerable influence in the party,  and if the election is only slaved off  long enough, may yet compel the  majority to adopt their views."  Slvci-j   the   above   was   wiitten,  Ti.'BTitnufNK   has   been   informed  thjitthe  manager  of-   the  Granite  mine and the manager of the Athabasca mine and committees of their  mine workers have arrived at the  following agreement as to   wages :  Machine men per day $3.50   to   $1,  hammermen $3.25,and muckers.car-  men   and   shovellers   $3,   with    a  uniform deduction of $1 a day   for  board.    Both the   mine   managers  and their men have acted  sensibly  in thus adjusting their   differences.  All the mines iu the Nolson district  are now paying tho Slocan Standard  Scale of Wages.   ,  INCORPORATED 16T0.  "After lookingall overtownfand  getting prices on Carpets and Linoleums, come to us.

Acting   city   cleik  "W'a.ssoii  furnishes Tun Tit i hunk:  with  the  following   sununnry  of  receipts   and  disbursements for the quarter  ending March 31sfc,   1900.    The  figures  show that the aldermen must exercise  care  or  they  will find  themselves in a fix that their predecessors  found themselves iu just before leaving oflicc'.    The  health department  iSionppiirentljr,  operated  at  a  lose.  The   receipts  of  that   department  total $1240.23 for the  quarter and  the disbursements amount to$lG91.  02, which is a loss of  $147.79, or at  the rate  of $1791.10  for the year.  That  department should be  made  pay its way.    The water aud  light  receipts are above the estimates for  the year, but there will be a falling  off iu the electric light receipts during   tho   summer    months.        The  receipts from licenses are not up to  the estimates  and the police  court  fines are not  sullicieut  to  pay the  salary of the police magistrate and  tho  rent   of his  court-room.    The  revenue for the  first three months  ���  is  $17,930.0S, which is at  the  rate  ,  of $71,720.32 for the year, or  $5000  i  short of the estimate of the finance  committee. The      expenditures  total $25,757.27, or $7827.19  in  excess of.the revenue.    While it  true  ,   that^fche council havo paid $0000 in-  oterest on debentures and fully $5000  of  the debts  contracted  by  their  predecessors, it must also be borne  _ju mind  that  the March ^accounts  have not been paid.  As the people like to see where  tlieir money goes, The Trihunh  publishes the. disbursements iu de-  ,tail, all except the names of those,  who appear on the different payrolls. ��� These should also appear in  future reports.. In fact, the council  should cause to be printed,at the  end of every quarter a statement in  detail of the receipts and expenditures. The cost would bei a small  sum, and the people like to know*  who pays money into the city  treasury and to whomat is paid :  Is now prepared to'issue Drafts and  Letters of Credit on Skaguay, U.

Pedro Cherbo, hotel keeper of  Kuskonook, was in the city yesterday. He states that the residents  of the destroyed town are getting  along comfortably, shacks and  other buildings having been built  for temporary use. No permanent  buildings will be proceeded with  ��� until a suggestion to re-survey the  townsite has been decided upon.  During the past month Dr. Rose,  house physician, admitted thirty  patients to the general hospital  and gave 100 consultations. The  majority of the latter were for eases  of la grippe, which is epidemic just  now. "  Mogul locomotive No. 584, the pet  of the Nelson yard for the past  three months, got up steam yesterday and rolled over to Trail, to  which point she has beeu transferred much to the disgust and regret of the depot officials. The  staff have a half-promise-that the  "pride of the yard" may comeback  in the near future, but are rather  dubious, as the railroad boys across  the river never yet gave up anything that once passed into their  control. Engine SS is now being  temporarily used in switching, but  the yard staff from yardmaster  Clarence Olgilvie arc not taking  half the comfoi t out of life that  they had with the ''old mill."  A new bunker lias been built at  the lower end of the C. P. R. yards  for holding locomotive coal. The  building is now full, the stock being G50 tons, sufficient to last the  locomotives running out of Nelson  for slightly more than two months  without replenishing. A number  of men are at work grading the  lower end of the yard.  Judge Forin holds chambers tomorrow and a number of cilmiual  cases aie set down for a hearing.  H. H. Bowden comes up finally to  elect as to his tiial and plead. It  is thought that the cato will be disposed of. ' Clayborne, committed  for theft, comes up for trial and  Sanderson, the C. P. R. porter who  stoutly maintains his innocence,  will also be tried. The authorities  wore busy Piiday and* Saturday  serving papers in these cases.  The Ontario Powder Company  starts today to replace the buildings  at their works opposite Mve-mile  point, which were destroyed in  Thursday's explosion. The new  building, which will be larger than  the old premises, will be erected a  short distance further up the lake  shore from the old site. It will be  rushed to completion, the company  desiringtoget _operations_under_  way at as early a date as possible.  During the past couple of days  certain changes have been made to  the big bell in the tower of the fire  hall, with the object of making the  alarm strike louder than has been the  ease up to the present. On various  occasions the call men of the department h&ve complained that  they could not hear the bell and an  effort is being made io remedy this  defect.  l^Iags were (lying at half mast  over the Iiotel Phair, the opera  house and at other points in the  pity yesterday in honor of the  funeral of the victims of the powdei  works explosion.   .  Within a few days the isolation  hospital on the Hall Mines road will  be deserted. Misses Hearlo and  Fahey came down yesterday, Edward Clayton will probably be discharged from the institution today,  and Dr. McLennan expects to fumigate the premises thoroughly and  come into tho city on Tuesday.  Mrs. S. A. Ink, who lias been  visiting her son, Charles II. Ink of  Hoover street, left Nelson yesterday morning for her home in Lewis  & Clarke county, Montana.  P. Burns returned on Saturday  night from Greenwood,  R. Insinger of Spokane, was at  the Iiotel Phair yesterday, leaving  this morning for Silverton. In company with other Spokane men Mr.  Insinger is interested in the Hewett  proposition at Silverton, and is inspecting the work done to date ou  the property.   Bight  men are at  work on the property and a car of  ore was recently shipped to Trail  from which big returns, particularly in silver values, are expeeted.  Work will be commenced today  on both Kootenay and Stanley  streets. The former will be graded  for a half block south of Baker, and  material will be moved from the  latter so that E. J. Curran can  erect a retaining wall in front of  the Club hotel.  Fred Irvine Sc Co., have issued  cards of invitation to a spring millinery opening for, Wednesday  afternoon.    Ices -will be dispensed.  The Columbian Comedy Company  will show tonight at the opera  house, in "A Stranger in New  York." A feature of the performance will be specialties between the  acts, in 'which the Somers family  will appear. This clever family  visited Nelson about two years ago.  Accounts against the city for the  the month of March should be presented at the city office not later  than the morning of the Oth instant,  so that they can be passed on by  the finance committee, which meets  ou Friday evening at 8 o'clock.  W. C. Forrester, provincial constable, late of Ymir, is in the city  and leaves today to assume his new  post on the Balfour extension with  headquarters at Thirteen-mile  point.

The Nelson Liberals announced  on Saturday night iu no uncertain  tones that they do not want the  coming provincial elections to be  fought on party lines, and still less  do they want Joe Martin as their  leader.  The meeting was presided over  by W. A. Galliher, president of the  local association, and G. C. Tunstall  was secretary. The attendance Avas  a good one, over 50 members being  present, and the proceedings  were    marked    with    remarkable  unanimity. If any of those present  did not agree with the views of the  majority, they lacked the courage  of their convictions aud kept their  opinions to themselves.  After the objects of the meeting  had been stated by the chairman  and. the arrangements for the transportation ;of the delegates to Vancouver explained, a motion*was proposed by John Hamilton and  seconded by C. B.Miller nominating  ten delegates to represent this  riding at the forthcoming convention of the Liberal party to be held  at Vancouver on the 5th aud Oth  instant. Some of those nominated  were prevented from accepting  owing to business engagements, but  finally the following delegates weie  selected, (twelve were nominated as  some weie uncertain as to whether  they would not be prevented from  going at the last moment): Dr. E.  C. Arthur, A. M. Johnson. John A.  Gibson, G. Frank Beer, John Mc-  Vicar, C. K. Miller, W. G. Gillett,  John MeLeod, John Ellis, Thomas  Madden, W. A. Martyn, and A. SI.  Sherwood. E. P. Davis and J.  Harold Senkler, both of Vancouver,  were nominated as alternates.  The delegates were also empowered to choose other alternates  at Vancouver in case any unexpected event should prevent a full  delegation from leaving i'or the  coast.  James Bannermau seconded by  W. Rutherford, then proposed the  following l esolution : '��� That iu the  event of a motion beiug made in  thei'orthcoming convention favoring  the introduction of federal lines into the approaching provincial elections the delegates of the Liberals  of the Nelson riding of West  Kootenay be instiacted to vote  "no."  Some amendments were suggested which tended to give * the  delegates more initiative, but it  was thought best to tie down the  delegates and they failed to" find  seconders,-the "original" "resolution  being passed unanimously.   -'  On the motion of Dr. Arthur and  James Bannermau, it was resolved  that the Nelson, .Liberals would,  under no circumstances, recognise  premier Joe Martin as the leader of  the Liberal party in British Columbia, and the delegates were insti uefced to vote accordingly. This  motion- was passed with but one  dissenting vote.  As the treasury of tho association  is somewhat depleted, a discussion  of ways and means ensued and a  collection was taken up which will  be devoted to-defraying the-expenses of the delegates.  Theiueeting then adjourned'until the 10th instant when1'the delegates to the.eonvention will report,  and the.annual election of officers  be held.      . *"*-..  BUSINESS   MENTION.  T. II.
