PRICE FIVE CENTS  in  I  Id  WILL TEST COST OF WORK  City Council Meeting.  There wore two absentees at the  meeting of the oity council last  evening���alderman McKillop and  alderman "Wilson. The conllict between the mayor and certain members of the council came up, but  this time ifc took the form of a  notice of intention to pass a bylaw  defining the duties of the members  of the council, and was disposed of  without comment.  Alderman Irvine, chairman, presented the report of the public  works committee recommending (1)  'that a pipe sewer be laid on Willow  street from Water street, to connect with C. Jisczkowicz's premises ;  (2) that the sideAvalk on the west  .side ofe Stanley street be extended  from Richards to Delbruck street;  (3),that 4700 feet of lap welded  steel pipe be purchased for water  mains; (-1) that Hendryx street,  from Silica to Mill streot. be made  passable for teams and that a six-  foot sidewalk be laid on Hendryx  street between the said streets; (5)  that the city bear the extra expense  of connecting Thorpe & Company's  premises with the Cedar street  sewer: (0) that an eight-foot sidewalk be laid on the east side of  Ward street, from Victoria to Silica  street, and that a. crossing be laid  ou' the east side of Ward street intersection of Silica street.  Tlio first three clauses of the re.  port were adopted without debate-  Upon clause four, however, there  was some discussion as to the  policy of the council with respect  (o the carrying out of street im-  piovements.  Mayor Houston called tho attention of the council to the petition  sent in for the grading of Carbonate street from Hendryx to Hull  .stieet.. Uis impression was that  llie petitioners weie moro anxious  J or this work than they were for a  sidewalk from Silica to Carbonate  on Hendryx."  Dr. Arthur expressed the opinion  that there should bo an expression  of opinion upon the question of bor-  i owing money for street improvements. Alderman J rvine expressed  Lhe opiuion that it would be absolutely necessary for the council to  ii-iv for $2.'),000 or some such sum to  be agreed upou. The opinion was  that Bakor stieet should bo macadamized, but the council could not  do the work with the money that  would be available from the cur-  icnfc revenue.  Alderman Arthur again put himself on record that the council  should not borrow any money for  M rcet{ improvements.  Alderman Hall agreed with tin*-,  in the main, but, he thought the  council would ha justified iu bor-  iowing money for the paving of  <ho six blocks already decided upon.  This would not require the amount  -mentioned- by Alderman Irvine, as  t he engineer had estimated the cost  at #2000 per block. Alderman Mor-  ih-ou took the giound that the  council should borrow money -for  ���street improvements of a permanent nature. If the council did this  the city would be as far ahead in  live years. Alderman Arthur had  some doubt as to whether the ratepayers would vote any money for  street improvements. Alderman  Irvine was, sure that the amount  - necessary for Baker street could be  secured. ,   ��� -   ;'  The elau.se of the report was-fin-  " ally adopted and the balance of the  leporfcweut through without debate. ,   - _     ' *     ', .       , .  -      ".   -  AVhen'tho report of the finance  committee was called for alderman  Arthur directed attention ��� to the  fact that certain rock' drillers .were  ou the payroll at the rate "of $3.25  per day. He ,sauL it ��� was the first  Time he ever heard of rock drillers  . i eceiving $3.25 per day.  Mayor Houston said ifc was a matter ' for the consideration of the  council.' ~ If the corporation got  good workmen it should be willing  to pay good wages.  Alderman Arthur asked what  was paid for, rock-drillers on railway work.  Mayor lions bou replied' that the  men employed by the city wero not  railway drillers.  Alderman Arthur's retort was  that the rock drillers were uo  better.  Mayor Houston said the view expressed by alderman Arthur was  merely a matter of opinion. His  opinion was that the city never  had better workmen. With this  the matter ended.  A batch of comiminicatioiis wero  received and referred to the respective committees. E. J. Curran and  others' communication re the open-  iug of the alleyway in block 10,  went to the public works committee. The same disposition was made  of the communication of C. D. Ogilvie, J. Bradshaw and others, for  water connection, as well as that of  W. J. Goepel for the opening of  certain streets.  L. Pogue was given permission .to  remove a small building to Vernon  street provided he does not infringe  the provisions of the fire limits bylaw.  William West, who was injured  by a flying piece of rock, wrote to  the council that he would not hold  the city for auy damages jJi'ovided  he was reinstated in the porpora-  tion service. His request was complied with.  Mayor Houston .called the attention of the council to the desirability of postponing the date of the  court of revision. He said this  would be necessary owing to the  haste with, which the assessment  roll had been prepared. It was decided to hold the revision on Monday, June 4th, at 10 o'clock in the  forenoon.  Dr. Hall gave notice that at the  next meeting of the council he  would introduce a bylaw for regulating the meetings of the council  and .for the general conduct of  business, and all other proceedings  at its meetings, and at meetings of  committees; and for defining by  what members of the committees  the powers of the body corporate  may be exercised.  The city engineer was instructed  to prepare specifications for stone  street crossings, specifications to  state that the surface of such crossings shall bo hanmier dressed, and  that tenders i'or such crossings be  called for to be in by 8 o'clock on  May 7th.  The mayor and city clerk were  authorized to sign a contract for au  additional 1500 feofc, more or less, of  curb, with Shackleton & Laidlaw at  $1.10 per foot.  Alderman Arthur moved, seconded  by alderman Irvine, that the council call for tenders for macadamizing  the five blocks on Baker street and  that tenders for the same be in by  Monday, May 14th.  Mayor Houston remarked that  the council had already decided to  do the work by day's? labor. This  statement was borne out by the  recollections Of aldermen Morrison,  Hull ancl Irvine, but alderman  Arthur had no such recollection  and he went on record as being in  favor.of having the work clone by  contract.  Slay or Houston said that he had  not changed his opinion that tbe  work could be done to advantage  by day's labor. His opinion was  that the block at present under way  would cost; about $2500.  Alderman Irvine remarked that  the city engineer's estimate was  $1000, and the eugineer informed  him that it would come within the  estimate.   ' FRANK FLETCHER SELECTED  As a Conservative Candidate.  Frank Fletcher, C. P. R. land  ageufc at Nelson, will carry the banner of the Conservative party in  this riding at the forthcoming provincial election. This decision was  arrived at last �� night, when... the-  Conservatives met in Fraternity  hall for the purpose of choosing a  candidate. Mr. Fletcher, who is  vice-president of the Conservative  Association, Occupied the chair in  the absence, of Fred Irvine, the president, and on assuming the chair  urged those present to gather about  the front of the hall. Between 35  and 40 persons were present.   "    -  Before the convention got down  to business secretary Brydges passed  through the hall with the membership roll of the Conservation association. All present who had~ not  already signed the roll were re--  quested to append their names or  retire from the apartment. Fiptfor  six gentlemen immediately J/jlgft.  Chairman Fletcher asked thatrtine  door be shut, and then asked if"; ft  was the will of the meeting that  the representative of The Tribune,  who had taken a seat at .the-.press  table, should be permittedI to reiriain  and report the proceedings. W. A.  Macdonald moved: That as The  Tribune is opposed to the Conservative party in this campaign,-: its  representative be. asked to retire  from the meeting. The resolution  was seconded, carried and immediately acted upon. A Miner reporter  present signed the membership roll  ancl was not interfered with.  The convention then proceeded  ancl a number of those present discussed the issues and prospects of  the campaign. A ballot to ascertain the feeling of the meeting resulted in the selection of several  gentlemen, among them being Mr.  Fletcher. The remaining nominees  retired from the field, leaving Mr.  Fletcher, who accepted the nomination and conveyed his thanks to  the convention. His candidature  was made unanimous, after which  tho gathering dispersed.  were published, and that lord Roberts declined to accept it.  The war specials today consist of  detached scraps of news, the favorite introduction o��**-the military  commentators and e fcoriai writers  being that as only ��.-.ht news has  been wired, something is probably  about to happen.  The Daily Chronicle's expert says  that before a solid victory is to be  attained the British must have different leadership from what has  been displayed;'in the Dewetsdorp  operations.

Mayor Houston replied that the  present position showed the disadvantage of the present system.  The city-engineer kept no data of  work performed..by the city by  days labor.  Alderman Hall agreed that such  data should be kept.     '      .';   ���  Mayor, Houston, continuing, said,  that the first council had proper  blanks prepared for tho keeping of  such data, and had tho system been  put into effect there would remain'  no reason for the city council" not  being able to know exactly what  every piece of -work performed by  day's labor had cost. ' The result of  the present lack of system wasthat.  although the eity had'.carried on  several pieces of work by day's labor  there was no data as to its cost.  ..Alderman Morrison thought that'  a.start should be made "at, -keeping  data upon the-block at present in  hand. . '     .'  '  Mayor Houston replied-,that even  this would be difficult now as there  was a great-deal of - preliminary  work to be included. . The loose  system should be remedied as  speedily as possible however, as  owing to the absence of data, estimates furnished by the eity engineer as to the cost of work were  merely guesswork.  The motion of alderman Arthur  was withdrawn for the present  after which the council adjourned.  Will Complete Uganda Kailway.

London, May 1.���5 a.m.���The  Boers are now showing uncommon  activity west of Bloemfontein.  They are in force between Fourteen Streams and Kimberley. On  Sunday they occupied Windsorton,  west of the railway, and now  threaten to interrupt the communications of the British force at  Warrington, to the north. This,  too at the time when general  Hunter is about to start on a 200-  mile march to Mafeking with 500J3  men.  To the east of Bloemfontein the  Boers, on Sunday night, were sti'l  holding the hills near Thaba Nehu,  while behind them long wagon  trains, loaded with wheat for the  Boer army in the north, are moving  through Ladybrand, The British  captured one Boer convoy on Saturday, but its size is not mentioned  iu the dispatch which, barely announces the fact.  Wepener, lately the scone ��� of incessant fighting, is deserted. General Brabant and colonel Dalgety  have moved north.  - According to information' from  Maseru, the,main body of the Boers  readied Keeuw river, west of Ladybrand, dn Sunday, small, parties  trailing behind at intervals of ten  miles, to protect the rear and whip  up the herds.     .  . Slight outpost actions take place  daily beyond Karee Siding, where  the head of the British invasion-is  cantoned. .  African horse sickness has broken  out in general Buller's army. It  proves fatal among freshly? arrived  animals. The Bloemfontein correspondent points out, that the deficiencies in the veterinary department cause thousands of losses.  General Lucas, Meyer's reply to  general Buller's complaint fchat some  of the British prisoners aTe lodged  in. the town jail says that only  those are so treated who tried, or  are suspected of trying, to escape.  He retorts that Boer prisoners are  confined in the town jail at Pieter-  niaritzburg with natives.  The morning papers give special  prominence to the statement of a  news agency that sir lledvers Buller  sent ia his resignation to lord Roberts after the Spion Kop censures  Explosion Felt in Dublin.  London, April 30.���Reports come  from Dublin of considerable un-  easiness^in the circles with which  Nolan, Walsh anflJRowaii, the thi ee  men arrested in Canada in connection with the blowing up of a lock  of tho Welland canal near Thorold,  .Ontario on the evening of April  21sfc, are alleged to be connected,  and the authoi ities anticipate some  hasty departures from the eity. It  is 'said that John Nolan had previously been arrested for complicity  in the Exchange court explosion  near Dublin castle, Nolan, Walsh,  Rowan and John Merna sailed for  Philadelphia in November, and ifc is  now suggested that Merna has been  "removed by his comrades." It is  further alleged that if Nolan and  the others aro convicted light will  be thrown on several noted crimes.  OCCUPY STRONG POSITIONS  South African News.  London, April 30.-2:30 p.m.���  The latest news received here from  the Orange Free State indicates  that, though the Boers havo evacuated Thaba Nehu, they have done  so to occupy stronger positions.  General Dewet on April 29th made  an effort to turn general French's  eastern flank and was foiled by the  cavalry, only after vigorous manoeuvring. The Boers hold the- ridges  to the eastward, whence they will  probably fall back when the pressure of superior numbers increases.  The British casualties sustained  during the Thaba Nehu fighting  were slight.'  General French's object, now that  all chance of catching the main  bodies of the burghers has disappeared, is to harrass the Boers  and prevent any well-organized retreat.  From Beira, Portuguese East  Africa, under date of April 23rd,  comes the news of the arrival there  of a Canadian 12-pounder battery.  It is added that general Carrington,  who is to command the British  troops going to Rhodesia, ,has been  cordially welcomed by the Portuguese officials and that he has, reviewed the Portuguese troops.  Cape Town reports that Dr.  Jameson has recovered from the  severe attack of fever from which  he has been suffering, and he is  mentioned as a candidate for one  of the seats in the Cape parliament,  representing Kimberley,-in succession to Dr. Frederick Rutherford  Harris.  The agent of Jules Weil of Mafeking wrote under date of April 21st  most cheeifully, saying everything  was satisfactory. He added that  the Boer guns were "firing heavily  into the town, and that the determined attack had been repulsed  without casualties on the British  side. r ���  The continuous ravages of the  war are shown by a Cape Town dis-  jiateh dated today, briefly announcing the arrival from Natal-of 25  oflicers and 252 men invalided home  and the sailing of the Aurouie for  England with 400 sick aud wounded  soldiers.  Endeavors are being made to  remedy the remount question, a  Simla dispatch announcing that 500  experienced native hor*��e keepers,  150 shoesmiths and 50 veterinary  officers have been drawn from India  for service iu South Africa.

Turkey Will Settle.  London, May l.--The Constantinople correspondent of the Times  says ; "The porle has issued a circular formulating proposals to the  embassy for increasing the customs'  duties." The Constantinople correspondent of the Standard says:  "Jfc is just tolerably certain that a  settlement with the United States  is not far distant since not only is  Turkey averse to seeing a precedent established for making a naval  demonstration, but several powers  are disquieted over the active interference of the United States,  wliich introduces a new element  into the eastern question and offers  an example which might be followed  by Great Britain."  VERY BIG RAILROAD STRIKE  It Seems Inevitable.  New York, April 30.���Commissioner Francis Deleganty of the  state board of mediation arrived in  this city from Buffalo this:morning  to confer with superintendent  Wyatfc of the New York Central  railroad, in the hope of preventing  a general strike on the Central system.   He is reported to have said:  "The situation is extremely serious. The only hope I have of a  general strike being avoided is the  making of concessions by the officials of the Central. Unless they  meet the demands of the men, there  will be a general strike. I can say  nothing further until I have seen  superintendentWyatfc."  All of the employees of the New  York Central were reticent. Many  of them declared that they had. no  grievances and that the conductors  and trainmen were' not regularly  organized, their organization having  been broken up by the big strike on  the Central system.  Tonight about 1000 freight handlers employed in the railway freight  houses on the roads entering Buffalo, other than the Lake Shore, decided to strike for increased wages  and shorter hours.  Two hundred men employed in  the yards of the New York Lake  Shore and Western Railway repair  works also struck tonight.  1 Buffalo, April 30.���With the  ultimatum that was to have been  given today deferred, the status of  the strike of car repairers of the  New York Central railroad is unchanged tonight, excepting so far as  the action of president Callaway is  concerned in deciding that superintendent Waite of the motive  power department shall meet in  conference the members of the executive committee has tended to  create a belief among the strikers  that the company is disposed to  pursue a conciliatory policy. Tho  strike leaders declare they would  make no concessions.  B.C. SYNOD CONVENES TODAY  Outline of the Program.  The synod of British Columbia  convenes in Sfc.

''The flies we  get rid of .by horsewhips and other  appliances, and .the flies at least  depart afc .night." But tho women  are absolutely aud really a'terror.  They came, out in the guise of  amateur nurses, after "having- exhausted'every other form of excitement. 'Considering that we are engaged in a war, thc-number of well-  dressed ladies at* Cape Town and  elsewhere giving picnics', is a blot  on the campaign." _        '   *  .

As near as can be estimated  Moyie's payroll for the month of  March was $15,000. The Sfc. Eugene  Consolidated Mining Company paid  out $12,000 for wages alone and the  $3000 is easily made up from the  payrolls of Park, Mitchel & Co., M.  Sheady's contracting outfit, and  other smaller payrolls about town.

At a meeting of'the local Conservatives* last evening Frank Fletcher  was nominated as tiie Conservative  r  candidate to contest the approaching provincial election in the Nelson  riding.    It is needless to say that  the nominee of the local  Conservatives is well known.     He  has been  "connected with the Canadian"Paei~  fie Railway Company in Nclaon foi-  soveral years,  and  is sLill  in   the  company's pevvlee,   lie has been a  candidate for the suffrages-- of the  people of Nolson on four different  occasions.    Following the incorporation of Nelson he was  elected as  an alderman  in   the  fii_L  eouncih  In the following year he again  offered as a candidate but  was defeated.       Tlio     third     municipal  campaign     found     JSlr. *   Kletchor  in the held as a candidate  foi   alderman, in which  contest he was  successful.     When   the   municipal.  elections   came, round   again   Mr.  Fletcher offered himself for the  office of chief magistrate, but was defeated, by mayor   Houston.     Just  what platform    the   Conservative  candidate   will   make tho  contest  upon has not yet been determined,  but   from  the  complexion  of the  convention which  nominated him  it may be gathered that he will  ' run as what is known as a Wilsou  Conservative.    Candidate  Fletcher  is a man of ability and will doubtless make as  creditable a  race  as  any candidate whom  the  con volition  which nominated   him  could  name.  Tub Mackintosh push in Rossland riding are about to throw up  the sponge, for they know that  their man is beaten before the  light has fairly commenced. Their  candidate was not a strong  man  before he was nominated, and a  mere nomination cannot make a  weak man strong. Mackintosh had  occupied high official positions as ji  Conservative; but before he accepted a nomination he repudiated  his party by saying that if elected  he would not stand out for a party-  line government. The men behind  him showed their weakness by hi-  "sis tin g~on���liom inat in g" ~li ~ ca nd Idate  on a party-Hue platform, when the  candidate lepudiated both the  party aud the party's platform. If  tho electors of Rossland who are  opposed to Martin will assert their  right to frame a platform and  nominate a candidate who will  stand on it, they will defeat Martin's candidate with case; but if  they allow things to drift along as  they *- aro drifting, Rossland will  havc for a representative in the  next assembly one who will bo one  of so small a minority as to bo  wholly without influence.

Wyudhain's reply  in  the  house  of  commons,  which  undertook to disconnect the delay  lord   Roberts'   advance   from   the  lack of horses.   He says:   "On   the  contrary the necessity for a large  and ever-increasing  supply of remounts can not bo too urgently insisted upon.    The sacrifice of horseflesh in tiie past i.s as nothing when  compared with the possibilities of  the future.

Editor op Tiik Tin hunk���-Allow  1110 to take up some of your valuable space iu answer to one of your  (Klitorial paragraphs in Saturday's  issue.    Having  resided  in  Florida  for the largest part of twelve years,  I am surely justified in saying that  /  a  false  impression  is likely to be  gleaned   from  the    paragraph  referred to.    The writer stating that  "Florida has nothing except climate,,, fine hotels and badly cooked  food as an inducement for tourists."  Now I own that if any one is on  tiie  lookout for a badly prepared  meal, it can be found  not only in  Florida, but in almost any placo in  the world where the art of cooking  is known.    But if any one, who has  stopped at auy of the best hotels in  the   state���the   Flagler   or   Plant  system      hotels���in    fact,     those  patronized by the tourist, can say  anything against the cooking, then  lie or she must be a chronic kicker.  And I have yet to meet anyone,  who,  having spent   one season  at  any one of the first-class hotels, has  not expressed  the hope  of being  able to return again, and people do  not, as a rule, go where they have  boon  badly   fed,    and   charged   a  heavy  price  for  it.      As  for   the  climatic conditions, remember, the  tourists, who are principally composed  of  the  wealthy  families of  the eastern "states, go  south iu the  winter months, December, January,  February and March, leaving cold  northern homes, so that they can  be where it is possible to play golf  and tennis, go sailing aud boating  nud  fishing, or have surf bathing  under a blue sky and'bright suji-  ���*.*ine," conditions  that are  hardly  possible in  the   northwest during  tho wintciyno-matter how fine the  summer or spring may be, as witnessed at present. "Therefore Florida cannot be a rival to tho Kootenays in tourist trallie,  for all the  tourists,arc gone in the summer to  Newport,    or   other    resorts,   and  possibly the only drawback to tlieir  not coming horo ih either the distance, or else an ignorance of1 the  'attractions of the "roads and hotels  ���along  the  stretch  of   water from  Nelson to Ward's Crossing."    And  if the Kootenays aro to be adver-  ti-ed to induce tourists  to come,  the advertising must  be truthful.  One   disappointed man   can   stop  more from visiting a "place, than a  dozen satisfied   men  could induce  to go. ll.  MINING SUITS AND MINING LAWS.  Hullo Mining World.  11��� may "strike ~tlie~ average 6br  server that Butte mining men are  tlio most litiguous aggregation of  mine operators ever thrown to-  gofcher in a western mining district.  That is a mistake. They are nothing of the sort. As a body they  are honest, intelligent, enterprising  - aud law-abiding. But they are  h'nauious of their rights, simply demanding that which they conserve  belongs to them and do not hebitate  to appeal to tlio courts to secure  them. There is nothing wrong in  this. If wrong exists anywhere it  may be found iu the law itself, or in  the interpretation "of "it by owners  of mining properties.  Scores of mining suits have been  instituted in Silver Bow courts, of  justice, but they prove only that  men differ in opluious of law and  of facts. The number does nob indicate that the plaintiffs and defendants are dishonest and grasping men seeking to gaiu by process  of law that which does not belong  lo them. Their multiplicity rather  allows a defective mining Jaw, or  defective judgment among litigants.  The law does not define the apex of  a lode, or its continuity, or the ends  and side lines of a claim, or extrala-  teral right, or the intersection of  lodes, or what constitutes a fault,  or a horse, or a mineralized zone, or  does the law solve the multitude of  problems which every wealth-producing western mining camp presents. The law does nothing of the  <*ort. It simply tells what constitutes a location and. how one may  .-ceure a government patent for his  claim. Only these and nothing  more. "Whether the law can do  more or should do more are debatable propositions which a better interpretation of God's handwriting  upon the bowels of the earth, may  determine.  But in His infinite wisdom the  Creator has raised a mighty host  which men call "mining experts,"  who, with models aud maps and  samples of rock and vein formation,  aro prepared to testify that one  man's claim belongs to another  until both judge and jury heartily  wish that internal disturbances of  earthly matter had been confined  to "Darkest Africa" or beneath the  deepest seas. But the experts and  the lawyers gain a great victory  for one party or the other and give  place to another aggregation of  litigants and experts and learned  doctors of the law to battle in a  like suit in which a different verdict  may be rendered. And during all  this time the same old law remains  upou our statute books, as silent,  upon the more essential points at  issue, as the tomb of the capulets.  Mining is  a science as exact as  mathematics,  but it is  not   thoroughly    understood.      Knowledge  alone will simplify it.    Until that  is gained mining men must worry  along as best they can, taking the  bitter with the sweet, justice or injustice,  as judges and juries may  mete it out.    But iu a mining district like  Butte,  where a foot of  ground may contain a fortune, mine  owners  guard their holdings with  jealous eyes and any encroachment  upon what they conceive to be their  rights  isf  fought   with   the   legal  knife and  the  knife  to  the   hilt.  Butte is the "greatest mining camp  ou  earth;"  it is  the  richest.    Its  number of mining suits aro, in one  sense,   a   compliment,   in   another  they are a sad commentary 'upon  our mining laws, or the ignorance  of mining upon the part of its mine  operators.    Uutil   one or  both  be  connected    by   time   and    dearly  bought experiences, the   investing  aud speculating world may continue  to hear of injunctions and restraining orders aud all other .kinds of  mining suits at law in the courts of  Silver Bow county.1   If Butte were  a  wild-cat  or played  out  mining  camp its courts would be employed  in appointing  receivers or broken  business firms and disposing of their  murder and divorce cases.   No mining laws" would be wanted for Butte  and mining suits would be things of  the past.       i  IT   WOULD   FAIL   HERE.  Imperial Bank of Canada  HEAD  OFFICE, TORONTO.

Orea, a little city in Sweden,  owns and operates a nursery, which  is said to yield a revenue of $150,-  000 to the municipality���a sum  sufficient to pay all its expenses, including free schools and a free system of telephone communication.  But while a system may succeed in  Orea, ifc might not in Toronto, for  in the matter of municipal owner-  _s_h_ip a_very grcafc dcaUlepends_upon_  public temper It is to be doubted  if Toronto could own and operate  a nuisery with any profit. Everybody who walked past the place  would>find fault Avith the way the  shrubs were set out, or with the  handling of tho ground, or with tho  watering. They would quarrel  with the gardeners, report them to  the park commissioner, and write  letters to the newspaper*. People  would want to pull up the trees  every spring to see if they were  growing. At the end of the first  year it is pretty safe to say that  an agitation would be started to  abolish the nursery because it was  not paying, and to change it into a  municipal tinshop or hennery or  some other attractive line of endeavor. - '  At the Paris Exhibition.  i  One of the most interesting features of the exposition is to be a pal-  ais du costume, where the fashions  of France from the early monarchies to the present day wilj be  shown. The exhibit has been pro-  pared by Felix, the dressmaker, and  is to cost several million francs.  The "palace" in which these costumes will be shown occupies 3000  centiares of ground. Not only will  fashions be represented, but historical events and scenes are to be illustrated aud depicted iu a suitable  environment by costumed manni-  kins. The greatest care has been  taken to have this exhibit as accurate as artistic. Exact productions of  rooms in French palaces have been  mado, and old books and old paintings have aided in the reproduction of some of the very early  periods to be portrayed. The  Byzantine epoch is to be especially  elaborate.     When this  Scientific Notes.  It appears from an observation  by Heise that even flameless explosives may set fire to gas in  mines.. " A compression of 200 atmospheres would raise the temperature of air to 1069 degrees C��� and,  as explosives in bore holes can exert a pressure of - 6000 to 8000 atmospheres the heat of compression  would be quite sufficient to ignite  inflammable gases in the neighborhood. A photograph , described by  Oscar Guttmann is held to confirm  this theory. It shows a flash at  the meeting point of the explosive  waves from two simultaneously  fired safety cartridges, proving  that the air,was so heated by compression as to become luminous.  Restoration to life after hours of  apparent death is noAv known to be  possible in cases of persons taken  from the water or from suffocating  gases. ��� Iu 1898 an apparently  drowned boy of sixteen was resuscitated by tongue traction continued for three hours, and to make  it easier to persist in life saving effort for hours iu similar cases, Dr.  Laborde; a French physician, has  devised a mechanical tongue tractor,  driven by an electric motor.  This is a. .German method of making "Shio Liao," a famous cement  used by the Chinese to unite gypsum, porcelain, i_arble,t stones and  stoneware. The materials are 54  parts of shackled -powdered lime,  six parts of powdered alum, and 40  parts of fresh, well-strained blood,  aud these are stirred until a well-  mixed mass of the consistency of  somewhat stiff salve is obtained.  When sufficiently thinned, this cement becomes a durable waterproof  paint of varied uses. Two or thiee  coats make cardboard covers as  hard as wood, it may be used for  painting houses, and it gives barrels an oil tight glaze.  Crooked Work Exposed.  Washington*, _Apri!l 30^���The.  house this afternoon voted to strike  out the entire appropriation for  pneumatic tube service of the post-  office. During the discussion of the  item Mr. Moody of Massachusetts,  mado some startling statements.  He declared that former assistant  postmaster-general Neilson, under  whom the experiments of the pneumatic tubs service were made, when  he retired accepted from the company $1000 in cash and $10,000 in  stock for his services here during  tho succeeding year. What that  service could be Mr. Moody  said he could not imagine.  Mr. Moody's next statement created a sensation. The service, he  said, had been constructed by contractors, who took their pay in  stock' and bonds,. The only asset  of the company was its contract  with the government.

An officer and two  or three privates were hit; bufc a  big fellow in the Bull's sprang forward over the twenty yards or so  that separated him from the enemy  and bayoneted the man who had  held up the white flag, driving the  steel through the Boer's throat and  was beiug [ killing him on the spot.
