 DAILY  EDITION   BY  MAIL  FIVE   DOLLARS=:A YEAR  WEEKLY EDITION  BY MAIL  TWO  DOLLARS A YEAR  EIGHTH YEAR  NELSOF:  SATURDAY MORNING, APRIL 7 1900.  PRICE FIVE CENTS.  CONVENTION ENDS IN A ROW  Nothing Was Done.  Vancouver, April (5���[Special to  The Tribune]���The Liberal convention  adjourned at ten  o'clock  tonight, sine die.    The evening session  was by far tho most  confused that  took   place   during   the    meeting.  The  feature  of   the  day's   session  was tho close vote on the reception  of   the   Cassiar   delegates.      They  ���were objected to by premier Martin  and his  section of  the  convention  ou account of the delegates  having  not  come  from  Cassiar, but were  appointed at a meeting  of electors  of Cassiar  held ab Victoria a  few  days   ago.    .10.   P.  Davis   and   the  .anti-Martin      party      held      that  *fche     delegates     should     be     received,     as     it     was     absolutely,  impossible, on account of  the  limited notice given of the convention,���  to have delegates appointed in Cassiar itself.    The  sensational  result  was a tie, 139 votes for and against,  and,   amid  cheers   that   could  be  heard   for    blocks,   tho   chairman  ! voted in favor of the reception of  the  delegates  from   the   northern  | district.  10. P. Davis  threw  a bomb  into  [the meeting the first thing  at the  I evening  session,     lie  moved that  "the Liberals in provincial  conven-  I tion assembled hereby refuse to ac-  Iceptthe government  of the  Hon.  I Joseph Martin as  a  representative  of the Liberal  administration, and  hereby declare that  it   is  optional  with any Liberal to support  or oppose the said government."  Martin objected to this as out of  order, but the chairman held it was  proper, and Davis held tho floor,  but for two hours the meeting refused to allow him to speak. Pandemonium reigned and the din was terrible. The meeting did nothing more,  and as no one coidd speak adjournment was made indefinitely. Tho  * invention opened with a riot early  Friday inorning. Thirty of tho  [-outside delegates whose credentials  were not upheld by the credentials  committee stormed the doors and  Jeven pas&ed the1 policeman who attempted to guard the doors.  Another account, speaking of the  scenes yesterday (1'Yiday) morning,  bays: -  Vanc'Ouvkk, Apiil 0.���The provincial Liberal convention got down  to business about 10:30 this morning after a very narrow escape from  a general smashup. All yesterday  and part of this morning was taken  np by the credentials committee,  which held four stormy sessions. The  Martinites were in the majority on  this committee and . were bent on  barring several proxies, who, they  claimed, were not regularly elected!  The anti-Martini tes, in spite of their  logic, were voted down, with the  result that about 30 representatives  who are opposed to Martin were  shut out of the convention.  The rejected ones were very  , much incensed over their treatment.  They determined not to _bo__qyit-  done, and, headed by Harry Senklor  of Vancouver, they smashed down  a side door and entered the hall by  force. A few men wore knocked  down in the crush, but no one was  seriously hurt.  The chairman being unable to restore order, the police were called.  A squad of live soon arrived, but,  as they were not certain of their  authority, they did nothing more  than stand on guard to pievent  further disturbance.  The uproar' inside lastqd more  than half an hour, when finally the  intruders decided to leave the hall.  Tlio convention took recess for  lunch at 12.30. The Avhole morning was taken up with debating a  motion to reject the report of the  credentials committee, which promises to last forever.  ing consideration, and in this direction practical suggestions would  bo valuable. The first lord of the  admiralty then said: "It seems  certain that a reply to this weapon  must be looked for in other directions than in building submarine  boats ourselves, for clearly, one  submarine boat cannot fight  another."  THE BOERS MAKE A BIG HAUL  Five Companies Captured.  London, April 6.-4:08 p.m.���The  followiug is the text of lord Roberts'.dispatch to tho war office, announcing the capture of five companies of his troops:  "Bloemfontein, .'April    5.���Another  unfortunate, occurrence  has  occurred, resulting, I fear,  in  the  capture of a part  of the  infantry  consisting of three companies of the  Royal Irisli'Fusileers and two cOni-  .panies  of  the Ninth...regiment . of  mounted   infantry,  near Redders-  burg, a little eastward of  Bethany  railway station, Avithin a few miles  of this place.    They were surrounded by a stronger force of the enemy  with four or five guns. The detachment held out from before noon on  Apiil 3 until 9 a.m. on April  4, and  then apparently surrendered, for it  is reported that the firing ceased at  that time. Immediately after Iheard  the news, during the  afternoon  of  April 3ul, J ordered Gatacre to proceed from Springfontein, his  present headquarters, with all  possible  speed, and  I dispatched  the  Cameron Highlanders  thence  to  Bethany.    He  arrived  at  Reddersburg  at 10:30 yesterday morning without  opposition, but could  get no  news  of the  British detachment.    There  can  be  no  doubt   that  the  party  have bean made pri- o :ers."  Dickson Discharged Cured.

VILLEBOIS - MAREUIL KILLED  Leading Boer General.  London, April 0.���The war office  has received the following dispatch  from lord Roberts, dated Bloemfontein, Thursday, April 5th:  "Methuen telegraphs from Boshof,  in the Orange Free state a little  northeast of Kimberly as follows:  " 'Surrounded geueral Villebois-  Mareuil and.a body of Boers today.  None escaped. Villebois and seven  Boers were killed*-eight wounded,  fifty prisoners.' "      ;  "Our losses were���killed:: caj>  tains'.Boyle and Williams, both of  the yeomanry, and two men of the  yeomanry; wounded���about seven  men.       ." '":���-.  "The attack lasted four hours.  The corps behaved very well. Our  force" was composed of yeomanry,  the Kimberly mounted corps and  the fourth-battery of-artillery.":  Mareuil was the chief of staff, of  the Boer army, was 50 years old,  and is said to be responsible for  many - Boer successes." It is - said  that he entered the Boer service  merely because war was his trade.  He went through a number of campaigns in the French army. Iu the  death of Villebois-Mareuil the Boers  lost their best instructed soldier in  continental methods of warfare.   ���*  Little News Allowed Through.  London, April 7.���Not a word regarding the attack affair at Reddersburg has" beeu allowed to come  through, excepting the dispatch of  lord Roberts. It is impossible to  form an opinion as to what has  happened. Meanwhile the British  public is getting to realize the difficulties to' be overcome before Pretoria is reached, and is reviewing  its premature ideas with respect to  the time when the war will be over.  No one iioav believes that it will  have ended by the beginning of  June, -These latest events more  particularly illustrate the heavy  work involved iu holding the railway. -This.body of some fivje���hun^  dred British troops, without guns,  Avhich disappeared so completely  Avithin 35 miles of the great British  army, had for its business to guard  a section of nearly ninety miles of  railway between Bloemfontein and  Springfontein.  spirited little action a feAV miles  southeast, where he surrounded the  Boers on a kopje. Not a man escaped. We. took 54 prisoners, 00  horses and a quantity of baggage.  General de Villebois-Mareuil was  killed during the action. A Boer  hoisted a Avhite flag and then (ii jd  immediately after, killing a British  officer. The murderer AA'as immediately shot."  LATE NEWS FROropiiT  '   ,     Olivier May be Cut Off.  ; Lqndon, April 7.���It is said that  the Boers who captured the British  at Reddersburg belonged to  Olivier's commando.A'" If -so, he has  not retired north and hopes are ex-  jiressedthat he mayrstill be cut off.  It is asserted thatfiOOO rebels surrendered during general Clements'  march nortliAvard.;; The Boers will  do their utmost to hold Ladybrand,  being rich ground and a productive  district. ;  The correspondent of the Morning Post at Springfontein, telegraphing Thursday,? says : "I am  glad to be able to report that increased precautious haA'e been  taken in patrolling the railway. Of  the prisoners captured, most are  foreigners. The report that Mr.  Steyn has been appointed to the  command of the Free Staters, and  the further report that the Free  State has arranged'a^loan from the  Transvaal for Avar purposes are  both confirmed. Ten thousand remounts from South America are  due to arrive during the coining  week, at the ports of Natal and  Cape Colony. J  WHOLE PLOT NOW EXPOSED  GATACRE IS EXPECTED SOON  To Engage Boers.  London, April 0.���Detached bodies of Boer horse, numbering from  500 to 1000 each, hiiAre appeared at  several places to the south and  eastAAiird of Bloemfontein, threatening the railroad, but communication by Avire and rail is not in the  least affected. One of these forces  is near East Springfontein, on the  Bloemfontein railroad, and general  Gatacre's forces are reported to be  about to engage it.  Lord Roberts, except to safeguard  the railroad, seemingly declines to.  send columns chasing the Boer  bands. He is reserving his cavalry  and transport animals for the for-  Avard march.  Explanations at the AA'ar office as  to why Roberts is inactive is that  there has been a lack of horses and  remounts,- but new horses are arriving by trainloads hourly.  The pressure on the railroad is so  great that private parcels andf the  officers' newspapers have not been  forwarded from Cape Town for  three Aveeks.  The situation in the Free State  remains far from clear and is unsatisfactory to British observers.  The sickness among the Boer  prisoners at SimonstoAvn continues  to increase.  A dispatch from Cape Town  dated yesterday, announces the departure for the front of the second  contingent of Canadian "mounted  infantry.  Rudyard Kipling has returned to  Cape Town.  400, who are permitted, under a  law.'to remain in the rand. Those  who are expelled number 600. The  prisoners and guns taken at Sanuas  Post have arrived at Pretoria.  MINE SHOWING  UP WELL  Will Soon.Begin Shipping.  The Big Horn mine, situate on  Porcupine creek, 10 miles southeast  of Ymir, is said to be developing  into a valuable property. A shaft  is doAvn 40 feet on the vein, which  is 8 feet wide at the bottom of the  shaft. A crosscut tunnel is in 240  feet, and has reached the first vein,  which is 6 feet Avide. In doing this  Avork considerable ore has been ex-  tracted, and tAvo carloads are ready  for shipment.'/It will probably go  to the Northport smelter. The  values of the ore are gold, the vein  matter sampling $12 to the ton, but  high assays are obtained, one made  at Nelson yesterday running $131.  The Big Horn is owned by the Simcoe Mining Company, which is incorporated under the laAvs of Massa-  chusetts. S. DesBrisay of Ymir is  president of the company, and several of the residents of that town  hold stock. Warren Spencer is  superintendent, and he has ten men  at work, Avho are paid $3.50 a day.  The original loeators are Messrs.  Edgar, Todd and Wood.  NELSON LOCAL NEWS.  BUSINESS IS SATISFACTORY  Submarine Boats.  London, April 0.���A question was  asked in the house of commons today as to steps taken by her majesty's government Avith reference to  submarine boats and the American  submarine boat Holland. The first  lord of the admiralty, George J.  Goschen, replied that the admiralty  had given attention to the subject,  but, he added, oven if the practical difficulties attending the  use of submarine boats could be  overcome thejr must essentially  remain a Aveapon for maritime  poAvers on the defensive, "and ic is  natural that these nations who  anticipate holding that position  should endeavor to develop submarine boats." Mr. Goschen, continuing, said the best methods of  meeting their attacks Avas recciv-  Plague in Honolulu.

The Boers Moving,  London, April 7.���The Bloemfontein correspondent of the Morning  Post telegraphing Thursday, says :  "The Boers are apparently making  an attempt to x*edeem their promise to retake Bloemfontein. A  considerable force has moved south  through Thaba Nehu. Geueral  Tucker's isolation at Karee, is more  apparent than real, since the open  ground north of Bloemfontein offers small opportunity for tactics.  They may possibly engage him to  distract attention from operations  elseAvhere. Remounts are anxiously  aAvaited."  For the Famine Stricken.

London, April 7,���Spencer Wilk-  _in_sonjn reviewing the situation in  the Morning Post, says the Boor  strategy at present may have one  or more of &OAreral aims. -The idea  of cutting off of the British detachments is natural" and obvious. So  is the plan of striking at the rail-,  Avay south of Bloemfontein, The  plan of collecting a large force in  the hills near Thaba Nehu is that  of a flank position. The theory of,  it is, that a strong Boer force here  Avould threaten the British communications, Avhen tho British advance is resumed, and Avould force  lord Roberts to attack and clear the  hills before moving forward.- If he  moves oast to attack them tho Boer  forces from KroousLadt would move  south agaiust his communications.

For a long  time the men fought incessantly  and kept tlieir AviA-es busy loading  their i ifl.es. Finally 50 British  soldiers* Avith fixed bayonets,  charged on the entrenchment. As  they came closer, the Boer men  crept over the eartlnvorks and,  while the Avomen began shooting,  Avith the'butts of their guns- tried  to hammer back the British .soldiers. Before their Avives' eyes all  of the 14 Boers were killed���bayoneted or shot.

The week just closing has  been  satisfactory from the standpoint of  the Nelson Avholesale trade.   While  none of the  business men  report  extra   heavy   transactions   during  the week,  it  is significant that all  of them  express satisfaction Avith  the volume of trade.   March Avas  an unusually good month,  despite  conditions which led  to predictions  of   a   pessimistic nature  in   some  quarters.       The   earnings  of   the  transportation companies afford an  excellent indication of the volume of  business, and it is only necessary to  quote the fact that the earnings of  the  C.  P.  R.   freight   department  were   nearly    $10,000    more    last  month than in March,  1899, to demonstrate that the  wholesalers in  Nelson are upholding the reputation of the city as the  distributing  centre for the Kootenays.

In  this the Rowland men have made  the greater piogres^; but they haA-e  " an advantage over .the party   in  Nelson in that their political mine-  manager happens to be a Conserva-  tive, while the political mine-manager whom the party desires to serve  in Nek_pil is a Liberal. -Iu-Rosslaiid-  the party has not stopped at nominating    ex-governor   Mackintosh.

Since the commercial aud mining  papers have realized that tho eight-  hour Jaw is upon the statute book  to stay there a re no longer any pre  dictions of blue ruin.  Columbia Review is a  . lislied in the interests of the British  companies engaged in mining in  this province; it is opposed to organized labor, and therefore opposed to concessions to or recognition  . of organized labor. When the  eight-hour law was0 first enacted  the ReA'iew did not consider. it  necessary to even quality the demoralization and stagnation which  it would engender. Now it looks  at tiie question in a new Jiglit, In  a recent issue it says :  Tiie position of labor in British  Columbia has received mucli"attention   lately   from   investors    aud  others   interested iu  tho development of this portion of the Dominion  of Canada  on account  of the  adoption of the eight-hour law for  miners    working   underground   in  metalliferous mines, and the consequent disturbance in the industry  and decrease of tiie output.    Incursion   of American  enterprise   and  capital has been followed by a large  immigration from Eastern Canada,  and  the business  interests of the  mining districts are largely in the  hands  of citizens,  by whom,  also,  " tiie labor market is supplied in the  industries subsidiary to actual mining.    The miners  are  still largely  alien.    This  eastern  population  is  gradually controlling  the  government of British Columbia, and assimilating it  to   eastern  methods  and ideas, while tho conditions of  industry arc becoming more modern  every day.    The miners employed  over 'the whole Pacific Northwest  are an industrial unit federated in  a  very strong association having  ith headquarters in Butte, Montana,  The profits actually obtained, and  the outlook for profitable investments is so satisfactory that the  mining industry wiJl sooner or later  adapt itself to the new conditions  even   if   these   are more' onerous.  Aiul although hai'm ha = beeu done  there ib a counter-balancing good.  The late government had ,a sharp  lesson as to bhe care which should  be exercised in trying industrial experiment?   without Sufficient   enquiry iuto their different effects under differing conditions; the laboring populations have learned that  justice  and   fjlir dealing   avo   the  characteristics of their employer.-,,  but that undue  interference with  economic conditions will have effects on. capital disastrous to the  interests of labor.    "While the public opinion of the. eountry_is_eqn-_  -iirmed"t() tile belief that to insure  progress it is best "to make haste  slowly,   there  is ,no  new   country  which presents so great attractions  to  the  highest -grade of laboring  men.    Nor is there anywhere the  conservatism of public opinion on  social questions which gives a more  .solid guarantee of adequate protection   to  tho   interests   of   capital.  And tho experience it hat. had with  the ejghtdioi)r law, unfortunate in  noine   respects,   Ju|,<t   strengthened  both of thobo characteristics of tho  industrial situation,  Is now prepared to issue Drafts and  Letters of Credit on Skaguay, U. S.,  Atlin, B. 0., and Dawson City, N. W. T.  mor of such a transfer. In addition  to controlling the War Eagle and  Centre Star tho Gooderham interest  also controls the St. Eugene and  Lake Shore, two great silver lead  mines at Moyie. These properties  possess large ore-bodies. They have  beeu equipped Avith mining and concentrating machinery, and would  form a- good base for the operations  of the lead smelter. Nelson also is  just as nearly as possible half-way  between Moyie and Rossland. The  arrangement would lend itself to  tho economical treatment of the  product of both groups of property.  Sir Roderick Cameron's Bear.  New York Sun.  "Is it true that sir Roderick  Cameron keeps a savage bear iu the  grounds around his house," was the  question which a Sun reporter put  to one of sir Roderick's employees  on Stateu Island.  "Well, no, not now," replied the  jnsular hayseed, "for his honor sentenced the bar to Bronx Park for  life for attempted manslaughter.  But I have some doubts as to tiie  justify of the sentence. I don't  think the bar knew anything about  the Marquis of Queensbury rules,  and, after all, he wasn't a bad fellow, as bars go. You see it, was  this way: Long ago, his honor, sir  Roderick,-used to be fond of bulls ;  but later lie took to bars. His  bulls was holy terrors, but  that poor bar was a _ quiet  and inoffensive sort of chap.  All he wanted was to be let alone.  He was very fond of his keeper, the  man who used to feed him. With  that man he was as gentle and  playful as a kitten,.but with strangers he was always on his dignity.  The keeper used to amuse himself  boxing with the bar. When the  man put on the gloves the bar  would sttiud up and put up. Then  there would be the queerest kind of  a  scrap.   The bar seemed to like  Imperial Bank of Canada  JIKAD  OFFICE. TORONTO.

A rumor is abroad tliat the Hall  Mines smelter at Nelson is to be sold  to George Gooderham. Whether  tJiis rumor Jias any foundation in*  actual negotiations begun, or is inspired only by the logic of the situation, it is hard to say. There arc  circumstances which seem to render  it a likely outcome. George Gooderham controls the "War E'igle aud  Centre Star mines, and it is freely  said ���though with a doubtful  jneasuie of truth���that one of the  reasons for the recent shut-down  of thewe properties was unsatisfactory relations with the Canadian  Pacific railway smelter at Trail. If  the smelter changed hands tho War  tingle and. Centre Star mines would  ensure Q.�� ample supply of copper  ore; nor would the fact that a contract has been entered into with  ihe Trail smelter for ��0,000 tons  . militate much against it as this rs-  prcseuts tho annual output of tho  Wnr Eagle alone, although certainly the existence of such a cou-  p-aet does not lend color to the vu-  Thc bar seemed to  the fuiK Jfe would close his fists  .up tight, not to make them hurt,  but to make them harmless. ,That  is r to" say, he would turn in his  claws, just like a cat at play. The  more the man pounded him the  better iic liked it. Sometimes he  would get in a clip,1 duly just a  little one for hini^ but if; always  sent the keeper to grass and ended  tho bout.  '���None of the other men about the  place ever boxed with that bar, except one, and that fellow will never  box with another bar as long as he  lives, ire was a strapping big Kng-  lishmau, and, after witnessing one  of the bouts between the keeper  and the bar, he insisted on having  ago with the brute. He donned  the gloves and put up before the  bar. Tho lord of the forest���J believe that's what you paper chaps  call a bal'~ treated him witli contempt, and refused to put up. He  did not liko the familiarity of  strangers. But the blamed fool  teased him and at last the bar  shaped himself. The man gave him  _a_pim_ch_iu_the_siioot. The bar let  go right and left. The left landed  , 'way below the belt, and carried  away a piece of tho man's leg, and the  right caromed from the shoulder to  the collar bone, which it broke. If  ib had landed a little higher it  would havc broken the neck or the  skull. You see it is a dangerous  thing to scrap with a strange bar.  "So sir .Roderick sent the bar  away. I was sorry for the poor  fellow, lie never bothered anybody that didn't bother him. But  lie was somewhat of a tramp.  Once in a while lie would get out  and wander away, and nobody but  his keeper could-bring him back.  Just liko a dog lie would follow  his master. If you mot him on the  road and you felb disposed to climb  a tree, he had ho objection. If you  ran away he was contented. If  you climbed over a fence that was  your privilege, ho didn't care. If  you walked boldly past hini he  would pay no more attention to  you than a chicken pays to a church.  But if you stood in front of him  nnd attempted to turn him back,  he would just walk over you. Then  you wonUi think that you were  under a trolley ptir.

Sojourning brethren Invited.  - Nelson Lodge, No,  8 in I. <S.<0."  streets, every  Opponents of Exercise.  St. Louis Globe-Democrat.  A story is going the rounds that  when "William M. Evarts was asked  the'other day to what he ascribed  his long life and excellent health,  he replied : "I don't know, unless  it is because I don't take any exercise." This has been taken as one  of Mr. Evart's jokes. Those who  know the venerable gentleman best  recognize the answer as absolutely  true. Mr. Evarts takes no exercise.  He has carefully avoided exercise  for many years. When he went  from his home to his office he would  not Avalk a block; he would take a  carriage, no matter how short the  distance.  Mr. Evarts isn't the only public  man who has a theory that physical exercise, added to mental effort.'  is a waste of tissue," which tends  towards debility and shortening of  life. Joseph Chamberlain is a conspicuous example. He spares himself all physical effort, so far as he  can.- lie will not walk up a single  light of stairs* if he can help it.  Senator Hanmi is, perhaps, the  most notable exponent of this practice in Washington. Vigorous as  he is in speech ,and mental effort,  the senator is,seldom seen save in  an attitude of physical repose. The  president walk& daily. He feels  badly without his constitutional.  He strides with^the movements of  a man to whom the exercise is keen  enjoyment. Usually he is accompanied by someone who may be at  the White House when he starts.  Nobody can remember to have seen  senator Hanna accompany the president ou a walk in the three yeai'S  at Washington.

The funeral of the late Miss Bessie Johnstone took place yesterday  afternoon from the residence of her  brother, George Johnstone, corner  Silica and Hall streets, to St. Saviour's church, and thence to the  cemetery.

Shaw and N.  T. MeLeod.  An interesting case came ��� before  magistrate Crease yesterday at the  court house. A family named Good-  row have been living in a float at  Thirteen-mile point for some time  aud an application by them for a  license was recently refused by the  commissioners. Provincial constable  Forrester laid au information  against Mrs. Goodrow for selling  liquor without a license, one of his  principal- Avitnesses Ibeing Harry  Williams. ' The .magistrate found  defendant guilty, imposing a fine  of $100 aud costs to be paid by the  13th instant. In, default of payment the fine will be levied by distress on defendant's goods and chattels, aud iu" default of a sufficient  sum being realized in this way a  penalty of three months is imposed.  Mrs. Goodrow - charged Williams  with assault, but the case was dismissed with costs.  The funeral of the infant son of  E. B. McDermid took place yesterday to the cemetery. - Rev. J. Colter White, -pastor of the Baptist  church, officiated. Among the floral tributes were those from Mes-  dames J. Lain'g Stocks, Sims, Byers  and Sharp.  - J. P. Gutelius, district C. P. Si.  district1 engineer, made au inspection trip over the Boundary Creek  road yesterday as far as Eholt.  The benediction and distribution    ���  of tho palms takes   place at the    ^f  church ~of ���Mary   Immaculate-on  Sunday morning   at  10:30  o'clock.  "Rev.-Father Ferland will conduct  the services.  Dr.t Rogers    of   Kaslo,   medical  health officer for-the Lardeau-Dun-    -��  can distiict, was iu the eity yester-    *y>  day on official  business.    The provincial health officer having heard  a rumor to the efl'ect that smallpox  existed in the railroad camps along  the Balfour extension, dispatched  him to look into the matter. Dr.  Rogers informed The Tuibune that  he had satisfied himself there was  no foundation in fact for the rumor.  W. J. Martin, timber inspector,  returned yesterday from a tour  along the line of the Balfour extension, where a quantity of timber  is being taken out for ties. The  major portion of ties and the piles  for the slip at Procter will be cut  along the line on the opposite side  of the lake, where an abundance of  suitable material is available. n  The household goods of II. Harris,  who leaves shortly for Colorado,  will be sold by auction this afternoon at 2 o'clock at his residence  on the corner of Observatory and  Ward streets. C. A. Waterman  will conduct the sale.  The Chinamen who alleged they  had been swiudled by white men,  who sold them a house situate near  the electric light dam, do not appear to have been swindled. They  purchased for $300 improvements  in the way of dwelling and outhouses that cost over $1000. Before they purchased the houses thoy  they were distinctly told that the  owner of the buildiugs had no title  to the land, and they paid the purchase price with that knowledge.  Chinese are not so easily swindled.
