LOCAL NEWS OF CRANBROOK  Business Keeps Good.  Ckaniihook, April 11.���[Special  to tho Tribune.]��� Business in Cranbrook is maintaining its usual activity, though some oC the good citizens  think it is quite dull for tho simple  reason that there has been nothing  sensational in a commercial way or  otherwise for a week or two. As  an illustration of tlio business conditions it is a fact that one of the  principal mercantile establishments'  receipts for last month was more  than $1000 greater I ban at any  previous time in its history- and it  is one of the oldest establishments  in Southeastern Kootenay. Others  are doing as well apparently, and  It'Cranbrook is happy even if it is  ���'  "dull times."  No trace has yet been discovered  of W. AV. Barker, the missing  engineer, who installed the North  Star tramway. Ifc was leported  yesterday that traces of a newly  made excavation had been discovered, and that a large number  of crows were hovering arouud it,  so it was deemed possible that the  missing man might be interred  there. As the location was at a  point not far from the North Star  mine and the search party has not  been heard from at this writing,  the leliability of the rumor has not  been established.  There has been considerable  trouble on tho North Star  branch road duriug the past  week, owing to the settling  of tho track, and a train went oft'  the track a few days ago and was  not able to return until the second  night following. Nobody was seriously hurt. _  The A. F. & A. M. were out in  force last Saturday evening, the  occasion being the institution of  Cranbrook Lodge of Free Masons,  \J.

Refreshments were served by the wives  and daughters of tho brethren after  the business of the evening was  closed.  Iu tt>sliort time Moyie, our flourishing western neighbor,  will be in  full possession of a lodge of I.O.O.F.,  - aud  a strong organization  of the  order will be installed there.  Fred E.

PROVINCIAL WRITS ISSUED  Election on June 9th.  Ottawa,   April   IL���[Special  to  The Tribune].��� Lieutenant-governor Mclnnes of British Columbia  has at last taken the only course  open to him, and that is to dissolve  the legislature. There were but  two things that he could do, either  to call tho legislature together or  bring about a dissolution at once.  To call a hostile legislature in his  case would be useless, and he has  dissolved parliament. If premier  Martin succeeds the governor is  safe, but if not he will have to go.  He took his life iu his hands wheu  he called on Martin to form a government. The writs have beeu  issued aud the election will take  placo on June 9th. The reason that  it does not come off sooner is that  the voters' lists will not be ready  until the 1st of May.

Thefts of Beer Stamps.  - Nkw York, April 11.���AVithin  tho past few weeks two mysterious  robberies of beer stamps, by which  the government' has lost $16,000,  havc occurred. One of these thefts  occurred while the stamps were in  transit between the treasury department and the general post  office at* AVashington. , The other  was between the postofiice and the  internal revenue office in Chicago.  The stamps stolen in AVashington  were worth $10,000 and 'those in  Chicago $0000. Revenue agent  Thompson learned that the stamp  thioves had made arrangements for  the sale of a large quantity of  stamps to a brewer's agent at Astor  House. Late today Thomas Blaney,  a saloon bartender, was seen to  enter the hotel with a big brown  paper parcel under his arm. He  seemingly failed to meet the purchaser and ,was afterwards arrested by agent Thompson. The  bundle which Blaney carried, when  opened, was found to contain some  beer stamps.  ��� Fortifying Bloemfontein.  London, April 12.���The Bloemfontein correspondent of the Daily  Telegraph in a dispatch dated  Tuesday, says : "The permanent  defences are ncarlng completion so  that tho town can bo held by a relatively small garrison. A British  scout who has visited the" Bloemfontein waterworks reports that'  the machinery and dams are intact.  Only a few Boers remain in the  neighborhood. They have trekked  six miles north and formed a laager  near Watervaal. News from general Brabant at AArepener shows  that all is going on satisfactorily.  The troops are getting new khaki  serge uniforms and boots."  Wants to Race in August.  New York, April 11.���Major  Jameson, who arrived on the  Oceanic today, denied the rumor  that he was the bearer of messages  from sir Thomas Lipton to the New  York Yacht Club. lie said he  thought it probable that sir Thomas  Lipton would prefer to race in 1901  in August, rather than October.  Major Jameson saw C. Oliver Iselin  and sir Thomas Lipton before sailing, and declared he could see nothing to interfere with the challenge  for the cup race in 1901.  CHICACOANS FILIBUSTERING  Boers at Kroonstadt.  London, April   12.���The correspondent of the Daily Mtvil at Lorenzo Marquez,  telegraphing AVednesday, says:    "Tho departure of  the Chicago ambulance corps for  Pretoria was delayed ou suspicion  of filibustering.   The members left  by special train this afternoon, accompanied by a motley following  of Frenchmen   and  Germans,   100  in   all.     The      departure  ,  only  occurred   after   many   stormy interviews    with    the     Portuguese  authorities.   The members have no  passports and no credentials beyond  a letter from Miss Clara Barton, to  the effect that she knows some of  them personally and believes them  to   be   genuine,   but    many   have  openly expressed their   intentions  of fighting.   The Boers are paying  from ��30 to ��10 sterling per month  for such recruits.  Thirty-five thousand Boers, with  ninety guns, are concentrated on  the range of hills between Kroonstadt and Wynberg. The whole  line is fortified and is almost impregnable.  Foreigners in the Transvaal.  JDurban, April 11.���It is said that  state secretary Reitz of the Transvaal has asserted that all Britishers  and Americans, with a large proportion of the Germans, will be expelled from the two republics within a fortnight. Twenty-five of the  seventy arrivals at Delagoa Bay by  a German steamer have been refused passports to the Transvaal at  the instance of the British consul,  owing to the fact that ammunition  was found in their possession.

The operators assort they will not  endeavor to work the mines, but  will let them remain idle until the  men get tired of inactivity and return to work of their own accord.  Bussian Garrison at Etishk  London, April ,11.���The Simla  correspondent of the_ Times says:  '"1 learu from a trustworthy source  that the strength of the Russian  garrison at Kushk is about, 30,000  men including a mountain battery.

General Brabant's force is confident of being able to hold out. The  Boers, after showing considerable  dash, have wavered when it came  to the scratch and have sti uck at  the least vital point, where they  are greatly -handicapped by their  proximity to the Basuto border.  Owing to -the strategical coucen-'  trations since the enemy's movements became defined, there need  be little anxiety as to the safety of  the Cape border." ,  Boers at Elandslaagte.  ELANDSLAAGT13, April 11.���Last  night the Boers set fire to the grass  on two hills, almost on their extreme wings. The motive has uot  been ascertained as yet, but the incident disclosed the fact-that-their-  position extends over fifteen miles  on a continuous row of hills from  Jones kop on the British loft to a  kopje -commanding Sunday's river  bridge on the British right. During the night the Boers moved  most of their cannon. There ha.s  beeu some unimportant skirmishing today. The British still command Sunday's river bridge. No  developments from yesterday's  affair are expected.  Kitchener at Aliwal North, t  Aliwai, North, April 11.���Lord  Kitchener arrived here today and  left soon after. A Boer big gun  was knocked over yesterday at  Wepener. The garrison is holding  its own. There has been heavy  cannonading there again" today.

OUTPUT OF COAL DOUBLED  CLARK  IS  TURNED  DOWN  ROBERTS   STILL  INACTIVE  Commanders Changed.  London, April 12.-4:15 a.m.���  There is little fresh intelligence  from the seat of war in South Africa. It looks as though lord Roberts may be preparing to send a  strong foice to clear the Boers from  behind him. A Capetown dispatch  says ho will not move for another  week, owing to the necessity of  gathering stores and supplies.  Sir AVilliam Gatacro's sudden removal is the theme of much speculation. Tho curt manner in which  it i.s announced, causes much comment. The general impression is  that it is connected with the Reddersburg affair, although there are  many who consider that there must  be  something much   more serious.  The war office has received no  news of the death of colonel Baden-  Powell, and utterly discredits the  rumor.  The operations in Natal have not  yet been fully explained. There  appears to have been an attempt to  outflank the British at Elandslaagte  and to sever them from their base  at Ladysmith.  The duke of Marlborough has  arrived at Bloemfontein.

London, April 12.���The correspondent of the Times at Mafeking,  under date of March 30th, comments  upon the fluctuation of spirits in  the garrison, as to the chances of  relief since Tuesday's terrible bom-  Verdict Unanimous.  Washington, April 11.���The senate committee on privileges and  elections today decided by a unanimous vote to recommend the adoption of a resolution declaring that  Hon. W. A. Clark of Montana, is  not entitled to occupy his seat as  senator from that state. The decision was reached after a two  hours' sitting, at which all of the  members of the committee were  present, except one. The absentee  was senator Caffery, and he wired  his vote in opposition to Clark. The  ballot was not taken until all the  members present had expressed  themselves upon the question, some  of them speaking at some length  aud all expressing different shades  of opinion.  Senator Harris indicated a most  pronounced leaning toward leniency  for Clark. He did not express, any  doubt that there had been a lavish  expenditure of money in Clark's  behalf, and while not condoning  this course, he spoke in terms of  strong condemnation of the tactics  pursued by some of Clark's opponents, referring especially to congressman Campbell and ex-senator  Whiteside.  He said that whatever Clark's offenses were, they were but little  worse than the methods pursued  by Campbell aud AVhiteside, aud  their efforts to expose tho senator,  and he insisted that if the report  was to be antagonistic to Clark it  should at the same time relate in  full detail the course pursued by  the two principal witnesses against  him.  > Senator Pettus practically agreed  with senator Harris.   -  There were many expressions in  the committee favorable to senator  Clark from a personal point of view  and.m^ve than one senator gave  "*''' "- .Jeer,, t-e doubts-to -whether he  hau actual personal part in the  knowledge of the expenditure.  Others expressed the opinion that  the senator was in a certain sense  the victim of environment and of  , habit. - Tho outlay of money in past  elections in Montana was dwelt on  as one of the explanations of the  liberal expenditure in this case.  Senator Turley dissented fromv  the view that Clark could have been  informed of the fact that money  was used to promote,the election  and he made one of the vigorous  talks in favor of an adverse report.  The fact that Clark and his representatives had failed to make their  reports to the state authorities of  Montana as required by the state  Saw was also urged against him in  the discussion of the committee, as  was the fact that he and his representatives had destroyed all of  their vouchers showing where the  jnoney had been used and to whom  paid. When attention was called  to the fact that this course was  usual with campaign managers, the  statement was met with the  contention that, while this plan  might bo more commonly adopted  than it should be, still there could  be no reasonable excuse for it after  the AVhiteside exposure.' it was  then known there would be a contest, and the argument was made  that every scrap ot" paper bearing  upon the election should have been  preserved after this development  in tlio case.  Senator Clark was at the capitol  when the announcement of tho ac-  tion of the committee was made  known. Ho was surprised at tho  result, but refused to make a statement until after consultation with  his friends and attorneys. The senator bore himself with his usual  composure. His face appeared somewhat flushed, but his voice was  calm and his manner collected, and  he discussed other business affairs  as if nothing had transpired.  Hklbna, Montana, April II. ���  Senator Clark's son, Charles AV.  Clark, said tonight:  "There is absolutely no truth in  the rumor that my father will resign, and I do not know the origin  of it."  Charles Clark received a telegram  from the senator today, saying:  "Committee report will be adverse,  but do not worry about that. I  will bo vindicated here and in  Montana."  This is taken to mean that semi  tor Clark will cuter the fight again  and   seek   to   be  returned to  the  senate.  Mines at Fernie.  Frank Gibbs, local manager of  the Brackman & Ker Milling Compauy, returned yesterday from a  short business trip to Fernie, where  he says everybody anticipates a  busy aud successful summer. He  says that owing to the temporary  close down of the AVest Kootenay  smelters, most of the Crow's Nest  Coal Company's coKe contracts in  the district wore cancelled, aud  that now their coke goes almost  entirely to the Montana smelters.  The new manager, Mr. AVilson  from Philadelphia, is having a new  tunnel driven and another trestle  built. The result of these improvements will be to double the  present output of the coal. It is  also the intention of the management to immediately start building'  120 more coke ovens.  CITY   LOCAL   NEWS.

That German Spy.  PakI's, April 11.- It now appears  that Leon Gaffot, who was arrested  on Sunday according to the Le Petit  PaiNien, charged with having relations with Germany, wib a clerk in  a big establishment and was arrested on the charge of offering to  communicate the German war  office a number of very important  military documents, lie was dis-  coveied thiough tho return, on account of insufficient postage, of a  letter he had sent. Its contents  were thus ascertained and the letter forwarded to the minister of interior, where a trap Avas laid into  which Gaget fell. A search of his  apartments revealed a statement of  the amount of money he had received f i om Germany totalling 25  inaiks. The prisoner claims he intended simply to make money out  of the German government by communicating bogus documents.  Sensible French View.  Pa 11 is, April JI.���The question of  the transport of British troops  across Portugue=e toriitory to  Rhodesia with tho permission of  Portugal, Mas brought up in the  chamber of deputies today by two  interpellations. The minister of  foi'oign affairs, M. Deleasse, in refusing to discuss the matter, said  Franco had declared her neutrality  at the opening of the Avar, but that  she Avas not expected to guarantee  the neutrality of other poAvers.  France could not be expected to  undertake alone such a guarantee  while the other powers held back.  There AA-as no reason 'to suppose  that Fiench capital invested in  Mozambique would be endangered,  but if such an event occurred the  government Avould not fail to furnish protection.

dispatch from Mafeking, which is a
strong commentary on tlio chivalrous manner in wliich the Boors
conduct Avar :
The public are feverishly awaiting news of the relief of Ladysmith, and the excitement is intense.
On January 31st the enemy
shelled the huts in the location.
They knew men were uot there,
and killed two -women and two
child i en.
We uoc the convent as a convalescent home, since the Boers demolished the oiigiual one.
The Boers wore notified of this,
but on January 25th they shelled
the convent with a nine-pounder.
A shell entered a ward in wliich
lady Sarah Wilson and major
Goold-Adams were sitting, and they
both received concussions. Lady
Uordon'Wilson escaped unhurt.
Rowland's farm, a mile out on
the western side of the town, has
ibeen converted into a refuge for
women and children. A bombproof trench has been constructed
as a shelter from the "hells.
Many havo fallen there, though
the Boer leadois have promised to
respect it. b'our hundred women
and children arc iu this laager; half
of whom, perhaps, are Dutch.
The latter aro clothed and fed at
our expense, but nevertheless thoy
are in constant communication with
the enemy.
Ou Friday  evening, January 20,
'•all the Dutch women went into the
trenches to sleGp. * They had never
tdone so before, which excited cuii-
• •osity.   -The occupants of Row land's
ilaager understand Boeftrieks.    Bo-
coming suspicious, they ordered all
the English to take shelter aUo.
Tho Boer^. shelled the women
with all their guns all day on Saturday. It makes one'b blood boil to
think of it. Our signaller read the
enemy's signals, diicoting the fire.
The Dutch women clapped their
hands, cheered, and sang when the
shells fell near the English.
The Boors were afraid to attack
our defence "Avorks, whore the men
await them, but from a distance
"bombard tho helpless. -
1 am glad to say that effective
means have been taken to protect
this laager in future.
Colonel Baden Powell has taken
the spies from the gaol, and put
them ucarer the women's laager,
and has sent word accordingly to
the enemy, that if they shell again
they Avill perhaps kill their own

any degree of celerity the rails

slated on very good authority that
just as soon as the graders liave

Two rode up to tho gate, and came
up ou tho veranda, so wc an cut-out
(there Avere only lone females ou
Lhe place), and after greeting us
they asked: "Where aro tho
English     troops?" Wo     said:
"There aro none here,'' Avhich
Avas quite true, for the small patrol
liad just left the farm. Tlio Boers
said they saw kettles ou the camp
fire, and the English rooibaatjes
must be near,
know   in   AAhat
AA'ant^d to Icuqav in Avhat direction
the tioops had gone, but avc
Avoukln't tell them. Next the commandant came up and asked aaIici-c
fabhor_A\_as,_bnt being told ho was
aAvay from homo, ho asked for tho
keys of the store and shop. Ts\ o
of us> girls went with him, and they
at once started canying all the
goods out, and packing them
in packing eases. The com-
commandant told us if Llioio Avas
anything avc needed, Ave must t.tire
ilj so we selected a Sew aiticloj.
By good luck they did not find the
till, which has a sot-ret compartment. One Boer asked wheie the
till was, and another answered him :
"Do you think"it likely that .they
Avould keep their money hero?"
The money was actually there, and
after thoy left I went down and
pocketed all the ca-ah. It was
lucky f did thus, for °oon after
about a hundred more came.
Thoy broke their Avay into the
shop, by"" smashing the shutter,
but found nothing. Tho first lot
Avent into the store, dragged out
the carts and all saddles. They
took all but tho ladies' saddles. Our
horses had not yet come up, but
the second lot of Boors .simply \\cnt
through tho veldt collecting every
horse. They met Booi. tho groom,
and told him, AviLli a gun at hh
Dead that he Avas to tell wluM-o all
the horses Avhere. Thoy allowed
us Lo keep six cows only. One of
the natives sneaked oil into the
mountain with father*** gun, and
hid it iu a tree, bub thoy found it
and brought it to tlue house. Ilow-
CA-or, as it was not an '"oorlog gun,"
thoy left it.
The commandant gave an oider
that no Boor «Jiould put his foot in
our house, and thoy timted oui
Avord that thoro were no guns,
ammunition   or   menfolk    in    the

Tho Pacific Cable Bill.
Washixotox,  April   11.—With
little   debate    of    importance   the
senate    today   passed   the   Pacific
cable bill, a measure appropriating
y.'B.OOO.OOO for the construction of a
cable lino   between   San   Francisco
and Honolulu,  at  the  instance  of
Mr.   Hale,  chairman   of  the  naval
committee.   Tho senate took up Lhe
bill.     The bill   as   icpoitcdto   tho
'•oiiato    N    <i   substitute    for   the
measure as oiiginally introduced by
Mr. Hale.     It carries an appropriation of #3,000,000 for  the  pioject.
The bill provides for  a  cable from
S.m   I'Vanci^oo   to   Honolulu,   the
the  AA'ork   to be   done   under   the
supervision   of  the   navy    department, a\ hich has made surveys and
determined  the    piacticability   of
tin* route.     Tlio  na\y  department
may use any of its   '•hips  that  can
be adapted to  the  task  of  hiy ing
the cable, and if it needs other ships
iL may charter them.     In  addition
to this it provides  that  the   societal y of the navy, in his discretion,
if ho finds it not practicable to lay
the cable "by the force of his own
department, may construct it under
specifications and due advertisement . for the construction,
laying and equipment of the
cable. All material and appurtenances shall be of first-class quality.
Mr. Hale explained that the bill
provides for the building of a cable
from San Francisco to Honolulu.
This, he said, would bo in the nature of an experiment, and on the
result of it would depend, in a measure, the fu tin c cour«e of tho government, it might be desiiable iu
the light of experience to start the
Philippine cable from a point like
Seattle and proceed to Japan by
tho northern route. Tho bill passed
without a division.

• Queen Drives in the Rain., Apiil 11.—In spite of the
almost continuous  rain, the  queen,
accompanied by   the   princess   Victoria of Uattenberg, surprised a few
spectators iu Phoenix Park by chiving out during the afternoon.    Her
majesty's   destination    today   was
the duke of Con naught's residence,
«hcie she made  a  brief  \isit. and
continued    her   drive   past   Cattle
Iiuock college and  Mount Sackville
convent, where the scholars greeted
her.    The roacK were deserted, rain
and wind prevailed and   the streets
were in terrible condition.    In .spite
of  this, it  was   not  until a  point
ovclooking   the  river  Liffey   was
icached,  that the   queen   ordered
her     caniage      lo       be      closed.
Ju^t  a^>  tho    Highland attendants
closed the carriage the .storm burst
out -with renewed rage but at  tho
hi&i signs of abatement her majesty
oidcred tho carriage to be reopened.
As the vice regal grouncK  came  in
view the storm,   reached almost  a
hurricane, wiLh   blinding rain, and
though the can iago vuis open, the
queen contented   herself  AA'ith  the
■-heller   of   an   umbrella,   and   the
hor*e.- dashed i'orwaid as rapidlyjis
possible,   reaching   tho  vice  regal
lodge rifely no .j o'clock.
