 DAILY  EDITION   BY  MA'L  FIVE   DOLLARS A YEAR  WEEKLY EDITION  BY MAIL  TWO  DOLLARS A YEAR  EIGHTH  YEAR  NELSON":   TUESDAY MORNING, APRIL i?  1900.  PRTCE FIVE  CENTS.  AINSWORTH'3 CHEAP POWER  Hydraulically Compressed Air.  Aix.swoimr, April i).���[Special to  Tlio Tribune].���An  event  of   considerable local importance to Ainsworth was! the connection  on  Sunday of the Stevenson  tunnel  plant  with   tho   Kootenay   Air    Supply  Company's pipe lino.    The  Kootenay Air Supply Company has been  carrying  on  picliminary  Avork  in  installing nnd  perfecting its power  plant  on  Coffee creek for  several  mouths, and yesterday, after an expenditure estimated at from  $40,-  000 to $."50,000, the company was in  shape  to  commeuce   earning  dividends.   The Kootenay Air Supply  Company   compresses   air   by  hydraulic   pressure   upon    a   system  known as the Taylor patent.    The  advantage of this system lies in the  fact that after tho  plant has been  perfected  the  operation  is wholly  mechanical,  the  waters   of   Coffee  creek,- in their fall down  the vertical shaft, compressing the  air and  driving it  wherever  desired  with  virtually no cost to the supply company for  supervision or  maintenance other than ordinary wear and  tear.  With the present (row of water  in Coffee creek the air supply company is developing about 000 horse  power, and the average power  available throughout the year is  estimated at 400. When it is stated  that this power is produced by the  Taylor system at virtually no cost  to the company aside from capital  expenditure it .wil! readily be understood that in its power plant the  company has a very valuable asset.  All that is necessary to insure the  stockholders a handsome return  upon their investment is a local demand for power,' and the outlook  for this is good.  Most   of   the  pioneers  of  Ainti-  worth   look   upon   the  commencement of the use of the Coffee creek  company's air as the turning point  'in the history of the camp, cutting,  *as it will, the cheapest power available from other sources by iifty per  cent.    This  being  so,  it  is  iitting  that the first company to take advantage of the improved condition  for mining should be the Stevenson  company, which  is  lit present  engaged in driving the 1200-foot tunnel   upon   the   Highlander. ,    The  Kootenay Air'Supply Company has  demonstrated that it  can   furnish  power cheaply, and the Stevenson  tunnel will demonstrate, just what  'the local demand" for power will be  in Ainsworth.    The Stevenson company had ios own compressor plant,  but the cost of developing the limited power required ia driving ahead  its   tunnel    was < so    very   much  in  excess   of the   charges   of   the  Coffee creek company  that a contract has been   entered   into   for  such  power as  is   at   present  required with  eveiy assurance of a  larger  contract   when    the  Highlander   tunnel   is   reached.       The  Stevenson tunnel  is  now in clo'ie  upou (500 feet,-which-is-about���half  the estimated distance, and  such  progress is being made, that  six  months should see  the  work  very  nearly if not altogether convicted*  Another source   of   revenue for  the Coffee creek company  -vv ill  be  tho Tariff mine.     Jn  driving the  Stevenson tunnel the Tariff ledge  was crosscut, and the manager of  the Tariff is Jiow running a drift in  from the tunnel to strike tho ore  chute exposed in tho upper  workings,    if this oio chute  proves to  be continuous and is  picked  up in  the drift now being riln from the  Stevenson   tunnel it will   make a  mine   out   of the  Tariff, as   there  will be 300 feet of stoping ground  from the tunnel level to the  upper  workings.     It ii.  the -intention of  the Tariff management to use compressed air from ColTce  creek and  arrangements for the use  of this  power are now���being made.  There aro many minors current  in the camp to the effect that work  will shortly bo i esumed upon several of the idle properties. It is  said that something in the nature  of a reorganization of the jSto. 1  Company will take place within  the next few weeks, when work is  to be resumed at tho mine. Something extensive iu the way of development is expected from the  Woodbury creek properties controlled by the Canadian 1'acific  company. This company already  ha& an extensive power plant installed, which was used to drive  three or four machine drills, and it  is now said that the company has  ordered four additional drills and  will prosecute on   extensive   pro  gram of development. Representatives of the company have recently taken options upon a number of claims in the neighborhood,  but anide from assessment work no  start has yet been made.

Tarte, published in the Journal de  Paris, in which the Canadian minister of jJubh'c works is quoted as  saying that it is quite possible 09  per cent of the French Canadians  disapprove of the present South  African war, and think that Canada  could have put the money spent iu  sending contingents to that country to better practical use. "But,  as good citizens, we have to submit  to the opinion of the majority,  otherwise no progress would be  made," says Mr. Tarte. "French  Canadians," he added, "were loyal,  because they were obliged to. be,  for reasons economic and social."  The interviewer remarked that  some of the French-Canadian papers humiliated themselves before  the British in a manner painful[ to  observe. .-  To this Mr. Tarte replied '"that  that was not the case with La  Patrie, published by his two sons,  but under his supervision. He declared that that paper would con  tinue to defend the tri-color, "that  unique and holy relic which still  binds our hearts to France."  =>'-,-  arrived  and  is  Anti-Martin Coalition.

Ifc is impossible for me  to believe that you haye  advisedly asked me, the representative of Spain, to go to "your-city  and rejoice-���with'you oiTcthe destruction" of the Spanish ships and  on the death of so many brave  sailors���my compatriots.' ' That  would have been simply, an insult;  and as I do' not deserve it and it  cannot havo been iu your intention,  I am perfectly sure, as I say, that  all this is the result of an error. I  have the honor to remain, sir, very  respectfully yours, d'Arcos.

Washington, April* 10.���Up to  this poinl/f nothing has been done  by   the   Ijrapshiugtqn    authorities  looking toward .the. restriction of  lmmigratff^&^Japanese into this  country a3* indicated by dispatches  from Victoria, beyond the application of tho contract labor law. The  enforcement  of these laws  is  entrusted to the officials of the treasury department, and" so far as is  known theyc have not discovered  any movement towards the bringing   into   the" United^States   of  Japanese coolies undir labor ^contracts.      They     are   "uot,     liow-  ever,     authorized   CtcT   interfere  with    the   incoming'of-any Japs  who can satisfy the^requirements  of the immigration laws.    It is  believed that, unlike other orientals,  Japanese of the laboring class fail  to make a sufficient   showing on  these points to pass muster-and secure admission at the Golden  Gate.  If, however, the tide of Japanese  immigration  now sjetting towards  tho British Northwestern possessions should include Japanese coolies  under   contract   to .labor   in   the  United States, there will be a necessity for a reinforcement of the  number    of    treasury    employees  charged with  the  policing  of the  boundary line  between Washington and British Columbia iu order  to prevent their entrance into the  United States.     There is no formal  obligation .upon ti}e JB.c'itish , Colonial   authorities   to    prevent' such  Japanese from crossing the line beyond that of mere neighborly in-  *terest.  Although the" recent reports from  San-Francisco of the arrival of considerable numbers pf ' Japanese  laborers, taken in connection with  the steady increase of the Japanese  population of theJfawaiian government, it is said that, even supposing the presence of the Japs within  the United States territorial limits,  should be regarded as undesirable,  the subject of restriction is one entirely beyond the executive's reach  at present, being one for the consideration of congres?. Some of the  officials have been, and many  still are, of the opinion that the  steady growth of the industries iu  Japan upon the phenomenal development of that nation iu other  lines, aud ihe need for raw material  out of which to make soldiers and  sailors~fdr the" Japanese"~army fand  navy, would create a sufficient  home demand'to remove any menace to the United States from Japanese immigration. Figures of the  immigration bureau on the Pacific  coast are, however, being closely  watched, for on their showing may  depend important recommendations  on tills subject.  THE MILITIA HAS STARTED  Italians May Riot.  Croton Landing, New York,  April 16.��� Vague rumors of dynamite being used by the strikers to  break the old Croton dam and  flood the Croton valley were noised  around during the night, but up to  an early hour this forenoon everything was quiet and orderly.  When the result of the conference  at New York was circulated among  the men last night, and they knew  that the militia had been ordered  to the scene, there were growls and  murmurs of increased discontent,  and the recognized' leader of the  strikers made no secret" of the fact  that the fight would be continued  until the men got what they demanded.  The full quota of squadron A,  under   command   of   major  O.   B.  Bridgman, assembled this morning this, are presumed to be thinking  at their headquarters. The troops now 0f retreating. The investment  prepared for field  service and will j at Wepener, according to a special  dispatch   from   Bloemfontein,   has  absolutely been abandoned.  London waits confidently for the  immediate announcement of news  favorable to the British. Distrust  exists, however, as to any rapid de-  / dead and wounded, but when the  ambulance appeared the Boer commander declined to allow them to  be taken. It was discovered that  the Boer reports of the extent of  the British casualties had been  greatly exaggerated."  ROBERTS SPREADS HIS NET  Boers May be Caught.  London, April 17.���Lord Roberts  has spread his net far aud wide to  catch the adventurous commanders  that have been making mischief in  the southeastern part of the Free  State. The net has not been drawn  in, but at Lord Roberts' headquarters "the "impression is that the  power of the Boers is decreasing.

The party is without a  leader, and a political party is like  an army. It must be led in order  to be successful. Sir Charles Hibbert Tupper should lead, but he is  backing and fulling, which goes to  show that he lacks the first requisite of leadership. No one takes  Charles Wilson seriously as leader  of a great political party. The  Rossland "white-shirted hoboes"  are yelling themselves hoarse over  candidate Mackintosh ; but he is a  has-been. Editor Cotton has many  of the requisites, but he has declared against party lines. None  of the Victoria crowd are auy  good, with the single exception of  lawyer Taylor, and he would  rather own a trotter with a record  than be leader of even the Conservative party, in Avhich he has been  a consistent worker.

One'candidate is a resident of the district, the  other claims residence in Vancouver and Victoria.    The resident of  the district is A. W. Smith, a merchant of the village of Lillooet.    He  has  represented  the district for a  good  many years  and  knows   its  wants.    He  says:    '"I believe that  " eight hours should be a day's work  " in all underground metalliferous  "mines, and that neither Chinese  " nor Japanese should be allowed to  " work in such mines."    That is a  clean-cut declaration, and anyone  that knows Mr. Smith will have but  one opinion as to what he would do  if an attempt was made to repeal  the    eight-hour    law.     The   nonresident  candidate claims  that he  has    large   mining    interests    in  Lillooet and other districts in the  province,  and  that   if  elected   he  would vote to repeal the eight-hour  law.    lie  says:    "With  regard to  " the   eight-hour  law:  I   consider  " that for an honest  eight  hours'  " work underground, any man is  " entitled to a full day's wage, but  " under certain circumstances aud  " conditions I see no reason why  " men should not be free to work  " extra time provided  they 'were  V compeiisa ted accordingly."    Candidate Smith will have a walkover  in West Lillooet.  0_'0* ' 0*  \m^ ���'^*, >^, ��� ���"��*,, .^a�� .^s^ ��� >����. -Xik ���<*!*. ���>*����.  00 .__   . fi* -0* . fi* .00:  i ��� ^i��.  -<��-^fe>��S"^fe'^l�� ",aa>'a��5 -*����>>?����� ^��-^& >*��5>^&  '00 .��S0.

He  must have done something serious  to be fed well, decorated with the  iron jewelry, have a trained chaperon'and become really the exclusive ward of the nation.  If he gets seven years iu all probability     he    should     have    beeu  I > hanged, for the  queen's agents are  '   tolerant  of these half-tamed"' chil-  ;   dren of the forest.  ;       Maxepeto, a Black foot half-breed,  |   had been  sent  to  Stony Mountain  '   for seven years.    According to this  tale,   a   "white   mail  in   his   place  j   would have been hanged.  ;       Maxepeto     was      always     bad.  i   Those who knew him best said he  ;   was exclusively bad.  j       When  an  evil  Indian  dies���too  '   evil to getinto the Happy Hunting  Ground ���he   comes   back    rcincar-  '������������ nated as a half-breed, and Maxepeto  was unholy even for a "breed."  It was at Trapper's Landing that  [  the thing happened.  Trapper's Landing wus within  seven miles of the northwest boundary line of the Canadian territories. Beyond that was a wilderness  of spruce and muskeg and fierce-  running rivers, stretching away to  the Arctic. In the -wilderness were  fur animals, Indians, a few white  traders, and a deficiency of law and  holy writ.  The clay feet of Trapper's Landing rested in the waters of tlio  Saska'river, and a box tossed on its  current at the landing would fetch  up oh the shores of Athabasca, or  Great Slave lakoh, over a thousand  ,miles away ; in pieces of course, for  the�� hell-gate of Grand Bapids  would batter it into smithereens,  4as a Collee"bean is smashed'in the  mill.  Maxepeto knew that wa Ler roadway well, clean through (o tho-  -'home of the musk ox, in the land  \_ that had been cursed by tho Gods,  and >lefb bare of everything but  moss, away to the north and east  of Great Slave lake.  Once he had gone there with a  mad Englishman who had a long  purse and wondrous rifles of unique  make. The half-breed had returned  with money enough to develop a  highly embellished season of delirium tremens, and some classical  Ovford oaths, which he had adapted  from tho Englishman's vocabulary.  Muxepeto's "By Jove! I get me  bully squiffy, don't you know!"  was a revelation to his coft'e-colored  brethren. ''Oh, he had a bally bad  time," he assured them.  And as i'or the Biitishcr, he had  acquired uo musk ox heads, but had  loft an ear, three fingers of Jlis right  hand, and several toes to bear witness to tho "bloody awful climate,  don't you know,"  If tho sporting rifles could have  shot through 200 miles of atmosphere, almost frozen solid, without  a stick of wood the size of a pen  haudle in tho whole expanse of it.  lie might havc bagged a bull's head.  But together lie and Maxepeto  tracked their Peterboro cauoe up  the muddy side of the Athabasca,  and he sailed back.to England,  while tho half-breed industriously  labored at the propagation of ah  c^tatic drunk.  Trooper's Landing "was the  whiskey limit. No man might take  the iirewater beyond the territories' borders, and to that end two  preventive police abode at this  jumping-off place.  "With extreme diligence that  liquor law was enforced, so that  the Landing's soil was more or less  always soaked in corn juice. A keg  stopped was a keg broached, and  jiquor drunk was liquor destroyed.  Life at the Landing in consequence Avas one long jubilee of hilarious precaution; it would have  been a sin to lot the firewater go  out amongst the benighted redmen  of tho north.  The trading company's factor  was king of this Bacchanalian vale,  lie was magistrate in  the  face  of  the law, and arbiter of all things,  in belief of the Indians. Sometimes when a petty case was on in  his court room, which "was the  store, and it dragged a bit, he  would say, with drunken gravity^  '���Oh, Shool" Give him three years."  xheu court would stand adjourned { tho pork, and  for a week, and the policeman  would bring the case up again at  the end of that time; the magistrate would have forgotten all  about it, and probably put the culprit on to work for the compauy at  a dollar-and-a-half a day, under the  impression that the man was a victim of somebody's malice.  There were no courts of appeal,  nothing only the varying moods of  the factor magistrate to average  out justice. Some offenders got  ten times the possible sentence,  while others got nothing who should  have been hanged.  It was because of this climatic  atmosphere that Maxepeto selected  Trapper's Landing as his place of  abode. '  One morning the factor called  Maxepeto into the store and said :  "Go and get Nonokasi and bring  her here : I'll marry you."  There Avas nothing very startling in this,, sudden command, because they were all at Trapper's  Landing. If the factor had said:  "Here's a parr of new boots for you,  Nichie," the half-breed would have  been more surprised. That he had  never thought of marrying Nonokasi, or, for the matter of that, any  other woman, did not matter in the  slightest; the factor had not consulted his 'wishes in the affair���  didn't ���care a mink skin' whether  ���Maxepeto" would like to have Nonokasi. for squaw or not. Also ��� what  the Indian maiden, might think  about it was of small moment;  Hudson's Bay factors are supposed  to do the thinking for the people in  these districts. So he simply said :  "Marsh (Go) bring her soon."  Maxepeto rummaged among the  tepees until he found Nonokasi.  " 'Tho Ookimous wanting you, I  think me," he said iu his crook-  limbed patois.  The girl brushed her black, glistening hair smooth; tied a bilious  yellow silk handkerchief, with impossible blue designs in the corners,  about her neck; threw a Scotch  plaid shawl over her bhoulders, and  bilently followed the big half-breed  to the company's store. Perhaps  tho factor wanted to give her a  l)ound of tea, or an order for silk-  worked moccasins.  The factor had been enforcing  tho law by patriotically destroying  much ovorproof whiskey, so he was  enthusiastically^ primed -i'or 'the  work in ham!,  "Stand up there together," he  said with maudlin dignity. "Hold  on a, bit!" ancl he fumbled in a  drawer where much jewellery of  unique design and unheard of metal  was kept in orderly abandon. He  fished out a ring with an olive-  colored diamond, half the size of  the Koh-i-noor, and handing it to  Maxepeto, said: "Now wo1ll go on.  Wheu 1 shout put it on her finger."  The marriage was mo* or less  legally * consummated, with the  store assistant as witness.  "How old are you?" tho Factor  askod Mexepeto, the census routine  becoming   indefinitely    mixed   up  _with_the other_rite in his mind   "Fifty summers," answered the  breed.  "And you?"      '"  "Twenty," lisped Nonokasi, covering her face with   the red  chocked  shawl, bashfully.  The Factor pulled a big sheet of  brown wrapping paper'.towards  him, made an exhaustive calculation with his pencil ancl said: "That  averaged as thirty-live, Write  them down as thirty-live years old,"  he added to the clerk.  Then Maxepeto's reward materialized immediately.  "Give them debt for a good outfit," the factor commanded the  clerk.  The bridegroom loaded up the  bride as he would a pack Jior.sc,  with, tea, sugar, biscuit, tinned  jams, fat pork and some'household  furniture, consisting of a looking  glass, comb, a frying pan and several yards of gaudy print. lie  throw a bag of flour on his own  broad shoulders, and stolidly led  tho way over the hill, behind which  nestled the smoke-tanned canvas  tepees of his red-skinned friends.  "He's a damn bad lot," muttered  the factor, leanly groggily against  tho door-jamb, as he watched the  two figures slouch along the winding trail. "He's a bad lot, but she'll  steady him, and it'll take her out of  the way."  "By Goss!" muttered the breed,  as he labored along under his hundred weight of flour. "What the  dobbil 1 want get squaw me for?  S'pose the factor got some game  make me marry dat gal."  Then ho thought cheerfully of  the sugar, and Jthe  Nelson Branch���Burns Block, 221 Baker Street  J. M. LAY, Manager.  GAMBLING   SPIBIT   IN   SOCIETY.  New York Tj ibunc.  There is no denying the fact that  the gambling spirit is rifo iu society  In these latter days. Bridge whist,  which is equal to poker in its unexpected turns of fortune, has almost  entirely superseded the scientific  game which depended on the skill  of the players for its interest, irrespective   of   the   stakes   involved.  many plugs of black tobacco, and  they rose like a barrier between  him and.the inconvenience of having a wife. Also there was no  doubt he had made a friend of the  man in charge of the commissariat,  the Ookimous. That was as good  as a pension." He even might hope  to take part iu some of the whiskey-  destroying bouts.  The marriage was the making of  Maxepeto from a worldly point of  view. From that time forth he was  like the lilies of the field; he toiled  not,' yet still had raiment���not gorr  geous, but shop-made and of wondrous cut���still it was raiment.'  Of a free choice work is never included in the curriculum of an Indian. Maxepeto was a specific red  man in his abhorrence of labor.  There were many things he could  do, but best of all, could he steer a  six-ton flatboat, carrying a hundred  pieces of goods, down through the  treacherous rapids of the Saska  river.  And this was the one thing he-  would do. When well loaded with;  liquor of unquestioned vileness his ���  constant boast was:.-"I'm- debest-  bully steersman on de ribber ? "  No man on all that boiling, turbulent stream, with its rock-blocked  rapids, could handle a boat like the  huge half-breed. He liked the danger of it, and the pay was big.  There Avas little manual labor,  which was the saving grace of the  thing in his eye3.  Two months after his marriage  he Avent down Avith the first boat of  the season; he ������"���was gone three  moons. The boats never came up  the river again���they couldn't; so  the pilots always walked* back.  Maxepeto tramped up the river  bank day after day, and when he  Avas near home cut across the hillside and appeared unannounced in  his tepee home.  He should not have come as a  leopard stalks a deer. But he Avas  a big, blundering breed, with" a  i housand-year heritage of savagery  in his blood,   '  That night he came to the store  and asked for a bottle of Jamaica  ginger for Nonokasi; she was ill,  he said.  The next day he came again, aud  fumbled among the limited stock of  patent medicines, and went off with  a bottle of fruit salts and a tin of  mustard plasters���his Avife AA'as,  worse.  Next day he came back and said  she was dead.  Tho clerk Avent o\'er to the tepee  and had a look at Nonokasi. She  Avas dead, of a surety.  Maxepeto got a few rough pine  boards from tho factor, made a  rude coffin, and in that she Avas  "brought doAvn to the mission house,  so that father Le Farge might perform the last rites before she was  laid away In the little clay cell up  on the hillside.  There was uo inquest, no bother  of any sort: doctors and lawyers  and undertakers and coroners, and  the others Avho make such a_herions  bubiness of dying, were hundreds of  miles away. Trapper's Landing  had no time for that sort of thing.  When people wanted to die in  peace they just died, and nobody  bothered them or the friends who  Avere left behind.  There Avas the body in its rough  pine case down at the mission  house, if anybody wished to look at  it. Father Le Farge would return  that night, and Nonokasi would bo  buried next morning, as became a  good Catholic. * -  In the morning, after the simple  service, they Avere carrying the  colliu outside to fasten on the  cover. Some one tripped on the  step and the case fell. The good  father started back with , a cry of  horror, for the head of tho dead girl  had rolled to oiic side.  The slender neck had been completely severed by a sharp knife,  and that wliile she was alive.  The glazed eyes stared with horrible grotesqueness into the face of  the evil Maxepeto as he stood beside the coffin and glared down at  his dead victim.  Why he only got seven years no  one can say, for he never denied it  ���but that was his sentence.  The "old-fashioned idea that it AA-as  wrong to play for money at all has  been changed in modern ethics to  tho more elastic code wliich merely  seeks to impress upon the younger  generation that it is wrong to play  for what you cannot afford to pay.  Now eA'en the youngest children require some excitement in the way  of a candy wager to give zest to  their round games.   Some discussion over a trick arose among a party  of little   ones Avho  Avere   playiug  "hearts" in an up-to-date nursery a  few   days   ago.     The   disputants  grew   eager and angry   over -the  point at issue, Avliereupon, to the  visitor's great amusement, a tiny  tot of fiA'e remarked,   philosophically:    "Bobbie   and    Jennie   are  'sillies' to mind ; Ave Averen't playiug  for    anything."     This    spirit   of  gambling, however, does not confine itself to cards alone.   The active stock   market   has   tempted  many society  Avomen during   the  last year to try financiering, and at  modern luncheon tables the latest  information  from  the ticker   and  the various losses and gains to their ���  acquaintances    are    discussed    as  eagerly as at the down-town restaurants.    "I   send  my maid   out  every morning for the opening quotations," said a girl of 20 to a man  who took her to dinner the other  evening.     "I study them all   the  time "while  she  is doing my hair.  Hoav haA'e I come out?   Well, about  even so far.    I made a good deal a  few months ago, but lately t have  lost.    It is the greatest fun.    I have  to do it all ou'6 of my own pin  money, but a lot of us have made a  pool, so that we can put in small  amounts.    Does my father approve?  Oh, I would  not tell him for the  world.    He gives hie my allowance,  and I do what I please Avith it; his  only stipulation is that I shall not  ask him for more."  "1 have had the [telephone moved  up to my dressing room," remarked  a yourg widow, avIio has been attacked by tho feA'er of speculation.  "You Avould laugh to see the costumes in Avhich I hold business consultations with my broker. The  other day I Avas in my bath when  the bell rang, and I had to jump  out, Avrap myself in a bathrobe and  stand, Avet and shivering, while the  man of business explained calmly  and inexorably that I must immediately put ui) more margin."  The delight of these Avomen  Avhen they make a lucky coup  knows no bounds, and the fame of  their transaction spreads far and  Avide, tempting their associates to  go and do likewise. "Of course,"  said a society man recently, speaking of the increasing love of speculation among Avomen, "there is no  more harm in a woman dabbling in .  stocks than a man, but, all the same,  I do not like to see her do it."
