 DAILY  EDITION   BY  MAIL  FIVE   DOLLARS A YEAR  WEEKLY EDITION  BY MAIL  TWO DOLLARS A YEAR  EIGHTH YEAR.  NELSON:  WEDNESDAY ^MORNING JUNE 20  J900.  PRICE FIVE CENTS  FENCING INJHE GROUNDS  Athletic Notes.  The proposition to  fence  the recreation grounds  is  meeting  with  llie approval of every sportsman iu  the city.    The  great  advantage to  h_ achieved is that athletic sports  will be placed on a business instead  of a  charitable  basis."    Heretofore  when any of the local clubs desired  to bring an outside organization to  the city it was necessary to  cover  the town Avith a subscription list to  guarantee expenses.     The financial  burden has invariably fallen on a  comparatively small section  of the  (ommunity, Baker  street  business  Wj_ii     men having beeu particularly  generous  iri  this direction.    In future  gate receipts cau be depended upou  to  liquidate  the  expense   account  and'the  financial  burden  will   be  shifted from   the  shoulders  of the  few to those of the many  who attend the gaines.    The athletic clubs  will be in a position to bring  good  attractions here without a hurried  scramble for  the  wherewithal, because   the citizens  of'.Nelson have  earned the reputation of  patronizing good sports, and the imposition  ���of a  two-bit  coin  as  gate money  will  not affect  the  attendance at  games in the slightest degree.    The  baseball club  shows commendable  enterprise in undertaking to finance  the fence whicli is estimated to cost  $800.    Of  couiso  they  will be assisted by the obiter  clubs  who  are  expected to put up a proportion of  their gate receipts  for  matches  to  which an entrance  fee  is  charged.  The amount of this  per  ceutage is  yet to he agreed upon, but  no difficulty is  anticipated  iu arriviug at  an amicable arrangement.     Officers  of   the   lacrosse  club  have volunteered 25 per cent of their gross re-  c-,=v>t& and one of the leading  football men stated that liis club would  agree to+lntnd overdo  per cent of  thoir  gross  receipts  and  half tho  net profits of any game.    Should  any jcitizen Jje disposed  to  resent  the fencing of the  grounds, which  is   extremely   unlikely, it  may be  said "that tiny ratepayer   who  demands free admittance will not  be  refused, and that the baseball  club  assumes all 'responsibility  in  con-  1 nectiou with the matter.    The ball  t-lub will proceed at once with  the  fence, and one  of  the first  results  will probably be   the   appearance  on the recreation grounds and that  the effect would undoubtedly be to  tear up the grounds iu such a  manner as to undo all the work  done on the baseball diamond this  year. The aldermen agreed that  some step should be taken to insure  the grounds being left in good shape  and adopted a resolution requiring  tlio circus people to deposit $100  Avhich will not be returned until  the grounds are in apple-pie condition;  RUSSIANS  OUTSIDE  PEKIN  The lacrosse match on the recreation grounds tonight will doubtless  attract everyone who takes an interest in Canada's national sport.  The management of the club promises a fast game, and as an additional feature the citizens' band  has consented to play during the  evening. The game will be i-efereed  by Ed. Curran, who' is the father of  lacrosse in British Columbia, having organized the first team in  Vancouver many years ago.  WORK WILL START AT ONCE  here next week of the crack Stanford University, team from California.    The football team has received  au acceptance from the Kaslo  eleven of the invitation to play  here during the celebration. By  arrangement with the committee  the game has been fixed for 4:30  o'clock on Tuesday afternoon.  AVith this game in, view the foot  ballists should redouble their efforts to get into good shape. The  Kaslo team has deservedly tho  re-  - putation__of_���being _a wcll_ bal~_  a need, well disciplined aggrega-  tiou who play a fast combination  game. ��� Furthermore they have  been iu constant practice for a couple of mouths and fche flayers are  in splendid trim. The Nelsou team  should win out on fche merits of its  individual players, but even an aggregation of stars has been known  to meet defeat at the hands o�� a  team individually much weaker  but disciplined in combination play,  and to go into the forthcoming  match with confidence the Nolson  men must keep up their practice  aud study fche tactics oi" tho game  during the uext few days. To date  players have turned out to practice  splendidly and the measure of enthusiasm manifested should not be  allowed to wane, [fc would nofc be  a bad idea, either, for the club fco  enter iuto correspondencev with  other clubs in the district for the  purpose of arranging games later  in the season.  The land sports during the celebration will be run oil on Baker  bfcrccfc and fche city officials will do  .some work on the street with a view  to making "the course smooth and  oven. The demonstration committee should rope the street from  Stanley to Josephine streets and  hocure the assistance of chief Jarvis  aud his staff to keep spectators off  the ground over which the races are  fco take place.  At Monday night's city council  meeting manager Waterman of the  baseball club drew the attention of  llie aldermen to the fact that the  circus which exhibits here on Thursday proposed to erect fchdir tents  New C. P. R.,Yards. ,.,  The announcement in The Tribune that the crown grants transferring blocks 88 and 39 to the C.  P. R. in pursuance of the agreement between the company and the  city, will be forwarded Avithin a  day or tAvo from Victoria, AA'as received with pleasure at the local  headquarters of the road, Avhere no  intimation had previously been received as to the disposition of the  grants. In anticipation of the arrival of the grants, the engineering  staff is Avorking in the yards, so  that no further delay Avill ensue.  At the 0. P. II. offices it is stated  that Avork is to proceed immediately ou the matter of the title being  cleared up. The plans for the buildings are out, and it is predicted  thafc "dirt will fly" within >  Aveok. The company's program involves an expenditure estimated at  $80,000 to, $90,000, the appropriation for grading alone being placed  at $20,000.-"The" new yard is already staked oufc. The C. P. R.  will, ifc is understood, have all the  work done by contract under the  supervision of its engineers. The  depot, freight; sheds, roundhouse  and grading Avill be built by .separate contract, Avifch time alloAvances,  to-expedite tho Avork.  Ifc is difficult to state Iioav many  men Avill be employed on the Avork,  but the staff must necessarily be  large if the buildings and yards are  to be finished .before fche Avinter sets  in.   The depot officials will occupy  their "present   quarters  until   the  neAV promises are ready for occupation when all the division officers  and the station staff Avill be located  in the new building Avifch the  ex-"  ception of fche distriefc freightagent.  As has already been stated the  depot will bo a union affair, the  Great   Northern   having    running  rights into the centre  of the  cifcy  under-fcheii*- agreement���with  the  C. P. R. whereby the latter road  takes over the section of fche Nelson  & Fort Sheppard line between Five-  mile point and fche city.   No official  announcement   has been made of  the  transfer, but the fact that a  "tie-on" has been builfc atthe Point  and that tho continuation of the  line   from  the ' present  Nelson &  Forb Sheppard station to the west  end of the CroAv's Nest sAvifcch lias  been  surveyed points to the facfc  fchat the deal is no longer in doubt.  Several   contractors - Avent   over  the ground betAveen the terminals  of the  CroAv's  Neat road and the  Nelson   &   Port   Sheppard   tracks  yesterday with a vieAV to tendering  on the connection,   Ifc is expected  thafc the Avork will be commenced  wi thin a short time.  Ancient Order of Foresters.  Fraternal societies are numerous  in Nelson,-but another addition has  been made to their ranks by the  organization of the eourtK-'Sfcar of  Kootenay" of-the Ancient Order of  Foresters.

London, June 20;���3 a.m���The  Russian relieving forces arrived  outside of Pekin this morning, says  the Shanghai correspondent of the  Daily Express, and immediately began to attack the cifcy on both sides,  employing artillery. The forces  apparently arrived in time, for the  Chinese assert that the attack upon  the legations, had been unsuccessfully reneAved. On the night of June  Kith, the Chinese troops under  general Tung. Fu Siang and  Tung Ching attacked the legations and set on fire five  European buildings. Nothing  definitely is known as to the result  except that the Chinese Avere disappointed, although other reports,  utterly discredited by foreigners  here, are that the Chinese, infuriated by the destruction of Taku,  have since niassasred all the foreigners in Pekin.  A modified version of these  rumors, l-eceived at Berlin, is that  the French, as well as the German  minister, has been killed.  The English at Shanghai think  the Chinese have had foreign advice  in organizing the defences at Taku,  because of the precision wifch which  their afctack was delivered, The  wires connecting Avith the harbor  mines were cut by the boats of the  warships the night before the bombardment.  It is reported at Shanghai, that  it Avas on board the Russian cruiser  Korietz and not Maudschur, that  the explosion occurred, killing and  Avounding more than 50. lt is reported that no fewer than 700  Chinese were killed in the forts.  The Shanghai correspondent of  the Daily Express says he is officially informed that Japan is mob-  lizing 25,000 men for immediate  transportation. The Avhole fleet of  the Nippon Yu Sen Kaisha" (Japanese merchant shipping company)  has. been chartered. The British  cruiser ^Undaunted arrived at  Shanghai yesterday, cleared for  action and took up a position commanding fche Chinese forts. There  are three Chinese cruisers in the  harbor.  At Yum Nan Fu, where the rising  had been gathering force for days  past, 080 Christians have been  attacked at the French mission  settlement,," many being put to  death. * The French consul and  three missionaries are still in  prison.  The disorderly elements have  secured the upper hand at Wuhu  and Gzeehuan, where the native  Christians have been massacred. A  thousand Boxers have gathered on  fche outskirts of Tien Tsin.  The Shanghai correspondent - of  the Daily NeAvs, telegraphing yesterday, says:  "The Chinese officials here assert  that they have news from Pekin up  to���June _17th��� The_si fcuation- was  then very serious, beyond fchat they  have received nothing, but they  deny that dispatches have been  Avifchheld. Admiral Seymour's  column is uoav in the middle of an  arid plain, Avith no food and no  good water, and surrounded by  hostile forces'."  afternoon, and" ������ several hundred  delegates, representing nearly every  mining section of the country, including Alaska and Canada, Avere  in attendance. In connection Avith  the convention, .extensive exhibits  of minerals Avero displayed. President B. P. Montgomery of Colorado  outlined a plan v of permanent organization and submitted lines of  work for further .efforts.  SPEECH FROM CHAMBERLAIN  Copyright Bibles,  New York, June 19. ��� Judge  Wheeler, in the United States circuit court today, issued a final decree iu the case of the chancellor,  master and scholars of the university of Oxford against fche Wilnier-  Andrews Publishing Company of  Noav York, "ordering that the university of'Oxford is entitled fco fche  exclusive use of the designation  "Oxford," or "Oxford Bible,"  and the use of the symbol  and coat-of--arms used by the  Oxford press' in connection  with the publication ��� of bibles.  The Wilmer-AndreAvs Publishing  Co. is perpetually enjoined and restrained from using in any manner  the word Oxford in eonnection.wifch  bibles not published by the Oxford  university, The decree concludes:  "The loss which, fche complainants  may have suffered by reason of the  action of the defendants, and the  matter of costs having been adjusted by fche parties, there shall  be no recovery of damages and no  costs fco either party, and this shall  stand as a final decree."  IS NOTHING FROM ROBERTS  Wires May Be Cut.  London, June; 20.-3:25 a. m.���  The casualties made up by the Avar  office including a- long list of missing, shoAV British losses in engagements hifcherto, "not reported. In  an attack on a .-reconstruction train  at Leeuw Spruiti on June 14 three  were killed, five; wounded and sixty  captured. Leeuw Spruit is forty  miles, northeast" of Kroonstadt.  This was the day of the Zand river  attack eighty miles distant. Another list sIioavs nine Avounded and  eleven missing���;in an- action at  Vredefort on June 7th, uo previous  mention of which has been made.  The Daily Mail points that it is  quite possible the Avires have again  been: cut in Roberts' rear, as no  dispatch later than June 10th has  been received.- .'.  The Boers areJ gathering in force  in front of genoral Rundle, near  Ficksburg. His forces stretch 40  miles. As some parts of the line  are Aveakly held, the British fear  the Boers may break through. The  Boers there are commanded by  Devilliers and Hermann. Mr. Steyn  is at Bethlehem, the temporary  capital of the Free State.  According to dispatches from  Lorenzo Marquez dated yestcrda3r,  the Malana bridge has beeu destroyed. Some say it was blown  up, others that it was undermined  by a patrol from Swasiland and  .qollapsed under the Aveighfc df a  train. This has �� temporarily interrupted tbe supplies of stores to  _the Boers fro��n Lorenzo Marque/.  The Bloemfontein correspondent  of the Daily Mail, June Kith, says  thafc lord Roberts is getting huts  for 30,000 men and is arranging  transports for a large part of - his  army, although his plans aro nofc to  take effect immediately.  The Lorenzo Marquez correspondent of the Daily Express says: "A  German-American, Avell known' to  fche Noav York police, is" alleged to  have planned a desperate attempt  to steal some of the bar gold from  the trucks' attached to president;  Kruger's travelling cquippage. lie  is said to have carried off some bars  before he was discovered."  The Lorenzo Marquez correspondent of the Times _ says: "Three escaped British prisoners are believed  fco have tampered with Malana  bridge. A freight train pitched  into the river aud two men were  killed outright."  M!INNES- FATE-IS SETTLED  International Mining Congress.  Milavaukee, June 19.���The third  annual convention of the International and Mining Congress opened  at  the   exposition    building   this  Resign or lie Dismissed.  Ottaava, June 19.���[Special to  The Tribune.]���A.t a meeting of the  cabinefc held this forenoon the position of tho lieutenant-governor of  British Columbia Avas up for consideration. " Lieutenant-governor  Mclnnes has had to form three governments in two years. Two of  them were dismissed, one Avith a  majority at its back.and another he  refused to permit to meet the legislature to see whore it stood. A  solid vote of the legislature was recorded against the selection of  Martin as premier, yet Mclnnes refused fco obey this and called upon  him to form an administration and  afterwards dissolved the legislature  to permit Martin appealing to the  province.  The result was -that Martin met  with an ovei'Avhelming defeat, and  now 25 of, those avIio were elected  out of a house of 38 members have  passed a resolution asking for the  dismissal of the lieutenant-governor. What is peculiar aboufc this is  thafc three ministers whom Mclnnes  has just sworn in, and whose  bounden duty ought to haA'O been  in that case when they did accept  office fco have defended tlieir governor, have instead signed a resolution demanding his removal. These  ministers Avere Dunsmuir, Eberts  and Turner.  The result was thafc at today's  cabinet meeting it was decided to  ask Mclnnes to resign. If ho does  not, then he will be dismissed.  Outside Criticism.  London, June 19.���Joseph Chamberlain, secretary of state for  fche  colonies,  addressing a   meeting of  the Woinens' Liberal Unionist Association   this   afternoon  said the  colonies had seen through the  haze  of tho South  African  anti-bellum  negotiations, Avhen sir Henry Camp-  bell-Bannerman, the Liberal leader  in the house of commons, and others  AArere mystified.   Noav that fche Avar  Avas    concluding,   he    added,     all  Avere unanimous that whatever the  final settlement may be, it must be  final, and should  not leave  behind  it the   seeds  of   further   mischief,  and make a repetition   of the trouble possible.   The Opposition Avant-  ed to knoAV when a general election  would be called.    He was unable to  gratify their natural curiosity, but  Avhether the election took place tomorrow, or was  postponed  indefi  nifcelyj ifc would be one of the most  momentous presented to the people  of the United    Kingdom    during  a    century,      involving      as      it  did,   the    question     of   the     future of South Africa,  and the future of  fche  empire.    Referring to  continental criticism, Mr. Chamberlain, after remarking that England  always expected  this, went on  to  say:      "Bufc   there    are    quarters  whence even a note of disapproval  would be a matter of serious  concern.    I refer to  our colonies  and  the United States.    I think  we are  happy in that Ave have their good  opinion   and approval.    It is true  this good  opinion  of   the   United  States is  not unmixed  with  other  sentiments.    I will not uoav  enter  upon  the  causes,  partly   political  and partly sentimental, Avhichhave  led  certain Americans   to  sympathize with Avhat they call  a republic,   although    its    whole     existence   and     practice     has     been  one pei petual denial of the  principles-upon whicli theii-own great  republic is founded.   I beiieve the  great majority of fche   Americans  recognize  thafc  our  claims  in this  Avar are as diigh  and  unselfish  as  those  Avhich animated  themselves  in the Spanish-American  struggle.  They fought'them for justice  und  liberty, nofc for their own  subjects,  but for those Avhom  they believed  to be fche victims of oppression, and  Ave did not-enter into  quizzical disquisitions or  technical  discussions,  but recognized that they were  carrying out as Anglo-Saxons a  great  work of civilization and humanity.  Now Ave are asking their sympathy  and avc believe that in the long run  Ave shall get in the final seal of their  approval.   Conflicting Dispatches.

ROSSIA GIVES ASSURANCES  OETS TEMPORARY SUPPORT  Times, telegraphing yesterday,says:  "The British flag is reported to have  been flying yesterday over the south  gate of Pekin. This is presumed to  indicate the arrival of admiral Seymour. The summoning of Li Hung  Chang to Pekin is regarded as a  complete change of front on fche part  of the Manchus, Avho havev abandoned the hope of opposing fche  powers."

Vancouver, June 19.��� [Special to  The Tribune.]���The so-called opposition convention closed harmoniously tonight. The Mainland gave  in, temporarily at leasfc, to the Vancouver Island delegation, this being  the only way in which, as one  member put it, ex-premier Martin  could be effectually extinguished.  The convention unanimously agreed  to support premier Dunsmuir and>  his government in passing  all necessary legislation at  the coming session, Avith  the understanding that there Avill  be a thorough reconstruction of the  cabinet after the session, which  takes place early in July. This Avill  be a very short one, lasting only  about ten days, for the voting of  supplies, and no contentious bills  are to be brought forward. This  leaves the millionaire coal king  practically master of the situation.  There was a fear this afternoon  that governor Mclnnes, who has  been asked to resign, would dismiss  the ministers -who have been unfaithful to him in asking the governor general his dismissal, and  thus playiug into Joe Martiu's hands  by precipitating another serious  situation. *  Just before adjournment an important resolution was passed to  the effect thafc members of the leg-  lature there assembled agteed to  the principle of the eight-hour law.  There Avas no arrangement, although that was mooted, fchafc  finance minister Turner and attorney-general Eberts should resign as  a necessary preface to the . reconstruction of the' cabinet. Mayor  Garden of Vancouver may be nominated premier in the leconstruc-  tion of the cabinefc.  Later���Mayor Garden has' definitely refused a portfolio tinder the  present rdministration. He has,  however, agreed to supporting  Dunsmuir as a temporary measure.  Mclnnes tonight refused to resign,  nofc being willing to be bound by a  Conservative eotiA'ention.  Fire at the Phair Hotel.  A fire brok'e out in the basement  of the annex of the Phair hotel  aboufc 10:45 yesterday evening. The  fire brigade was called out and fche  bla*/.e avus located under the building near the furnace. What started  it is a mystery as there has been no  fire there for .several weeks. One  theory Avas that a burning cigar  end or a lighted match might havo  dropped throng)i a grating. Fortunately not much harm was done,  and the fire Avas quickly put oufc,  the Avater, as usual in such caf-es,  doing more damage than Die flames.  A Secord Week.  Enoi/r, June 19.���Something over  S00 tons of ore left Eholt for Trail  lasfc Aveek. The shipments came  from the *B. C.�� Winnipeg, Athel-  stan and Golden. Crown. . This  amount; Avill be increased to over  1000 tons this week. The machinery  is now in position at the R. Bell.

Insurrection in Bulgaria.  Bucharrst, June 19.���The insurrection in Bulgaria is spreading,  and ."50 peasants have been killed by  the military at Durau-Lekah.  China Stops Telegrams.  Washington,   June   19.���When  the official day closed it was found  that a message had been received in  the morning from admiral Remey  at the navy department, touching  the readiness of the Princeton and  Marietta and Seafire for immediate  service.    He presented all the news  that had come to the government  from the east since yesterday.   One  of   the   most   important developments, however, was the notice of  the Russian government of its intention to dispatch 0000  troops  to  China which was accompanied by  the     understanding     that     these  troops    were    to     be "= used   for  the      assistance     of      Europeans  and Americans  and   with no   purpose of territorial aggression on the  part of Russia.    This assurance was  received Avith the greatest satisfaction. It is understood thafc Japan, in  view of Russia's frank  declaration,'  Avill consent   to assume   the same  obligation   toAvard   the other   na;  tions, in   which   ease the  greatest  obstacle to effective action, whether concurrent or joint, by the powers in China, may   be considered as  removed. v  Lord Pauncefote, the British ambassador," called at the state department this afternoon and spent  half an hour in conference Avith  secretary Hay. His lordship had  no neAvs from his own gOA*ornruenfc  beyond that contained in the morning papers respecting developments  in China, and he A\*as anxious to be  informed as to the details of the  reported battle on Sunday morning.  The state department Avas without  information on this point. It is  expected that admiral Kempff will  be heard from Avithin a day or tAvo.  Tho difficulties  in   the   Avay   of'  speedy communication between the -  navy     department    and   admiral  Kempff are illustrated in the series  of messages that have come in the  last.48 hours'-from the cable offit-es.  Yesterday the department was in- *  formed that Avhile fche Avire system  beyond Chefoo, and  leading- up to'  Taku and Tien Tiin had  been cut,  ifc had arranged that a daily st(-am-  er should take messages for  fchfjse  points afc Chefoo and carry them fco .  their    destination   up   'the   river.  Though this  arrangement involved  a day's delay, it AA'as acceptable *rud  the authorities  Avere  disappointed  afrreceiving today fche following no-* -  fciee from the cable office: ���  '    "Cable   office   reports    that the  Chinese   administration   has   cancelled   arrangements" for a  po-tal  service from   Chefoo to Tien Tsin  and   Taku.     The  Great Northern  route through Siberia  will  do  its   '  utmost to get telegrams through to  Tien   Tsin,   but   messages   can   be  accepted only afc the sender's risk."  A   notable   feature   about   this  notice is the  disclosure  of an^ apparent purpose on the  part; of the  Chinese  government   to    interfere  with- -free���communication   -be���  tween   the   foreign    naval"  commanders at Tien Tsin and Chefoo  and their  respective  governments,  au. action   which may have some  bearing on the decision Avhich must  be readied very shortly as to the  status   of   the   relations   betAveen  China and the other nations of the  world.  Berlin, June J9.���The i'olknving  semi-official dispatch has been re-  eei\*ed here from Tokio: "The  Japanese government has been exit  off from all communication with  Pekin since June 14th. The Japanese consul at Chefoo does not report  anything concerning the destruction of the legations at Pekin."  Degree Conferred.  The University of Toronto litis  conferred the degree of C. S_. upon  H. K, T. Haultain, manager of the  Yellowstone mine. Mr. Haultain  graduated in the School of Practical Science���the engineering department of Toronto University���  in 1889, and aftenvards took post  graduate courses in London and  Freiburg. Since that time he has  been actively and continuously engaged in mining in Ireland, Austria and South Africa, as Avell as in  the Slocan' and this district.

You  on  the  will  have no kick  on the price  .or-quality. ���  bia  required a stable government  above all things.    They endeavored  to make it appear that an understanding existed between the Conservative candidates on the Mainland, and tbe Tui-nerite candidates  on the Island;  and they promised  that af ter election they would unite  and   form   a   strong   government.  The result of the elections plaeed it  in tlieir   power to   redeem   their  promise.   The Martin government  was overwhelmingly defeated,' and  the Turnerites  and  Conservatives  found themselves in the-majority.  Acting, it is said, upon the recommendation of the retiring minis tiy,  lieutenant-governor Mclnnes called  upon James Dunsmuir  to form a  government.   Pie succeeded at once  in securing the co-operation of ex-  premier Turner, and ex-atfcorney-  general    Eberts,   as    minister   of  finance   and   attorney-general   respectively,  and  thus fortified   attended a   political   convention   iu  Vancouver supposed to be called by  sympathizers with the old Turner  government of   1898.     Just  what  transpired  at   this   convention   is  more or less a mystery, as those in  attendance are said to have been  pledged to secrecy, but  sufficient  has leaked out to demonstrate thafc  the real object of the convention  was to secure a straight Conservative government, and to AArithhold  support from any government other  than such as the convention should  formulate.    If this policy is persisted in ifc can only tend to further  complicate matters.' It means that  the Turnerites of Victoria and Vancouver Island must either  violate  their   pledge*,  or   break  with   the  Mainland Couservati ves,, and iu such  an event the Conservatives would  be   nothing    short   of   a   faction.  Given  every Mainland member of  Conservative   leanings   they could  nofc muster more than eleven members, and several of the'se might  consider that they oAved more allegiance to ex-premier Turner than  to the Conservative faction.  In the house   of   commons   the  other day several   speeches   Ave re  house of commons who undertook  to defend it, and the probabilities  are that the last has been heard of  setting one corrupt election off  against another equally ..corrupt,  and thus shutting off all enquiry by  the courts. f  Tur.Ri. are several points of difference between the mine-owners of  Kootenay and the urine-owners  south of the international boundary, ' In New York this A\eek the  western mine-OAvners ���will hold a  conference for the purpose of maintaining the: price of lead, Avhile iu  Victoria the Kootenay miue-owners  are subordinating the Avelfare of  the mining industry to the advancement of the Conservative party of  the province.  The case of lieutenant-governor  Mclnnes was before the federal executive yesterday Avitli the result  thafc lieutenant-governor Mclnues  will be given an opportunity to resign, failing Avhich he- Avill be dismissed, Tt is difficult to .see what  other course- Avas open to the- federal authorities in view of the circumstances of the ease, and, aside  from the followeis of Joseph Martin, the decision of the OttaAva authorities will be hailed with delight  by the people of British  Columbia.  Who will be the next lieutenant  governor? This will be tho question of the next few days. A month  ago ifc AA'as generally conceded thafc  the appointment Avould fall to  Hewitt Bostock, bufc his chances  have no doubt been Avoakened by  tho hostility of the Martinites. Tlio  problem before the Ottawa authorities is to please the three factions  of the parfcy in tho provinco. To  overcome the difficulty ifc is not unlikely thafc some Eastern politician  will be selected.  matters military, both in and out of  season, made him rather unpopular.  Churchill and the aggressive major  sat side hy side at the table, and  the martial potentate voiced his  opinions in his usual manner,  phurehill bore the infliction dumbly  for a season; then, taking advantage of a pause, when the major  wanted to take breath, he said, very  complacently and irrelevantly:  "Do you know, major, I met a  man this morning Avho would  gladly forfeit ��50 for - the pleasure  of kicking you,"  "Kicking me, sir!" roared the  angry major. "Kicking me!" 1  must ask you to mention his name  immediately!",  ���'But, the fact is, major, I am not  sure that I ought to tell you," replied Churchill Avifch well-assumed  caution.  "But I insist on knowing his name  at once, sir!" shouted,the truculent  officer, uoav red Avith rage.  "Well, sir, I suppose I must tell  you.

The question of taxing Canadian  Ftici'j'* raihvay lands in the IVortli-  "���.vcsW'emtories will be brought before parliament by Mr. R. L.  Richardson, who lias given notice  of a resolution declaring that the  landfe owned by the company shall  become subject to taxation on February 15th, J 901, ancl that all such  l.nids should be patented to the  company on that date, so that the,  taxation may be imposed as soon as  llie exemption contemplated By  parliament at the passing of the act  of 18S1 has expired. The clause in  ���the agreement under which theae  lands are now exempt reads :  "The Canadian Pacific railway,  and all stations autl station grounds,  workshops, buildings,' yards and  other property, rolling stock and  appurtenances required and, used  for tho construction and working  thereof, and, the capital stock oi"  the company, shall be forever free  from taxation by the Dominion or  by any province hereafter to be established, or by any municipal corporation therein ; and the lands of  the company in the Northwest  Territories, until they are either  sold or occupied, shall also be fiee  from such taxation for twenty  years after- tho-grant thereof from  the crown."  This is dated February I Oth, 1SS1,  and the evident ambiguity of it  may be made the ground fora claim  by the Canadian Pacific Railway  Company for what would be virtually a perpetual exemption. It is  contended by the company that the  ('vemption is to bo twenty years  from the issuing of the patent.  This, according to the established  method of dealing with the raihvay  lands, is meaningless, and the clause  would have the same effect if.it  finished at the stipulation that the  lands bo exempt "until they are  either sold or occupied." The company does not takeout a patent for  lands until they are sold or occupied, consequently an exemption for  twenty years after the patenting of  the lands would enable the company to hold them for all time free  of taxation, Mr. Richardson's  resolution declares that the lands  owned by the company become subject to taxation on February 15th,  iS91. The date flxod is twenty  years, less one day, by the way,  from the date of the agreement,  and it*- was clearly understood by  both parliament and the country  that the agreement implied only an  exemption of twenty years. The  resolution merely declares an interpretation of the agreement as ifc  was understood at the time it was  adopted. That is seen by a reference to the debate on the agreement in the commons.  The Senate and Trades Unions.  The criminal code uoav boforo the  parliament of Canada  contain,-* a;  section forbidding combines in  trade. The senate has struck out  au exception made in favor of trades  unions: "Nothing in this section  shall be construed to apply to combinations of workmen or employees  for their own reasonable protection  as such workmen or employees."  It would be interesting to know  whether the senators imagine: that  at this stage in the history of the  world they can render trades unions  illegal. The matter has been fought  over in England as Avell as in Canada, aud decided in favor of trades  unions; and the senate might as  well try to revive the laws against  witchcraft as bheJlaws against these  organizations. There is a Canadian  statute recognizing and regulating  them, and those" who wanted laws  forbidding trusts and combines had  not the slightest intention of abolishing trades unions.        _,  The senate in this case has far exceeded its legitimate power of revising legislation. It is endeavoring, under cover of amending a  statute revising the criminal code,  to revive a set of obsolete laws  again'bt trades unions. All the talk  about icfusing to pander to the  labor sentiment is , rubbish. The  legalization of trades unions is uot  the dream of a visionary reformer ;  it is the settled Ia.w of the land, here  as in Kngland. All the senate can  do is to create some temporary confusion. The laws against trades  unions will not be revived * even if  through some technicality they  should bo restored to���shadowy existence nobody will enforce them,  and governments would be quite  justified in placing every possible  obstacle in the way of their en-  foreement--  _   _   TWO   NOTED   SOLDIERS.  P. R. Wilkie, General Manager.  .    E..Hay, Inspecter.  .-,.;  Sir Francis Wingate, the present  Sirdar, who succeeded lord Kitchener on the latter being called by  the British government to South  Africa, holds au extremely important position for so young a man.  He is only 39 years old, bu$ has, it  is said, the wisdom and astuteness  of a much maturer ago. When  only nineteen he entered the Royal  Artillery, and when 23 he was military secretary to sir Evelyn  Wood in the Nile expedition,  and was specially commended  in the official dispatches for his  brilliant work. He was iu action  at Toski, Tokar, Hafir, Atbara and  Omdurman, and has been awarded  more medals and decorations, it is  said, than any other man of his age,  lie has made several essays in literature with some success, among  his published works being : "Mah-  disra and the Egyptian Soudan,"  ���'Ten. Years of Captivity in the  Mahdi's Camp," and i. translation  of Slatin Pasha's "Fire and Sword  in the Soudan."  The brilliant exploits of general  French, the dashing cavalry leader  of the British forces in South Africa, have made him the subject of  much public discussion. Considerable curiosity has been excited as  to his nationality, and he has been  claimed by different people as Irish,  English and Scotch. Ifc would appear, however, that the family  came over to England originally  from France, the head of it being lord de Freyne. A branch  of    the     Frenches      settled    in  Nelson Branch���Burns Block, 221 Baker Street  J. M.-LAY, Manager.  Roscommon and remained there  for some generations. The grandr  father of general French lef t  Ireland and settled at Ripple Vale,  inKent,cEngland,rand, to confuse  matters more, the mother of general  French, who was Miss Eccles, was a  Scotchwoman. As, however, he  was born in England, he may be  considered an Englishman of mixed  extraction. ' His youth was mainly  passed in the north of London.
