 AMERICAN AND BRITISH GUNS  ARE   BOMBARDING   APIA.  The Germans Do Not Like it, but Will Not  Construe   it   as   an   Overt   Act  Against  Germany.  Washington,   March   30.���The Samoau  crisis divided attention with the fighting'  about Manila in official quarters today.  At the foreign embassies, where this has  been a subject of consideration  of late,  eo��i��iderable anxiety was shown lest the  affair should assume a grave international  aspect.    Sir Julian  P.mnccfote, the British ambassador, went co the state department at eleven o'clock, accompanied by  his secretary and conferred with secretary  Hay.   As this is regular diplomatic day,  little significance would have attached to  the   call under   ordinary circumstauces,  but with British and American warships  cooperating in the bombardment of Apia  more than usual interest is attached to  the call..  While there may be a dearth of  official   information,   at   the  same  time  actual events carry out  what has been  anticipated     and     give    a     basis     for  intelligently considering the further joint  action of tbe governments in making a  sf.ttlem-.nt of the entire Samoan  trouble.  Both nations are acting in complete accord, not only for a general solution of  the Samoan   problem,   but   particularly  with reference to the  force  exerted-by  the  British  and  American    naval commanders.   As to the German attitude, it  is stated positively iu a quarter thoroughly  familiar with   German   official   sentiment,   that the outbreak now   reported  caunot under  the circumstances be construed as an overc act against Germany,  nor be a causus belli.    This is from such a  source that it largely removes the- possibility of international comulicatious.  THURSDAY AFTERNOON,  MARCH  30,  1890  PUBLISHED AT NELSON, BRITISH COLUMBIA.

Nearing the Insurgent Capital.  Manila, March 30.���It is now   believed  that the insurgents' faith iu Aguinaldo is  destroyed.   Aguinaldo with his family is  said to be preparing to flee from Malolos.  General Macarthur is making ready  an  armed railway car for future operations.  At six o'clock this   morning   the  dying  columu,   with   the   third  artillery,   the  Montana and the- Kansas volunteers on  the lefc of the,railroad, aud the Pennsylvania, the South Dakota  and   the Nebraska volunteers ou the right, started for**  Bocave across two miles of open  fields.

Elko, March 30.-[Special to  The  Tribune.]���Two  of the  Italians   who  .were  implicated in;che murder of young Ryan  were arrested  this   afternoon   close   to  where they had attempted ro  swim the  Elko   river   by   constable   Barnes   "and  special constable Frauk McVictie of Fort  Steele    assisted    by    Aneas     Campbell  of     Elko.       The     particulars^   of    the  case   are    as    follows:      The     Italians  had     a      quarrel      with      a      couple  of Cranbrook men   of leisure, iu   which  they apparently got the worst of if, judging from their appearance.    The Italians  vowed   vengeance   and   laid    in     wait  for     the     men     they      had       trouble  with.   Young  Ryan  came along  about  this time, aud it is  believed they took  him for one of the men they were looking  for, and shot him through the heart.   Altogether there has beeu four arrested as  implicated in the murder.   After arresting    the   last  one    at   Cranbrook,   constable Barnes got information that the  other      two     were    making     for    the  United     States     boundary.       He    and  Constable McVittie traced them to Jaff-  ray, lost the trail there, and caught it up  again at Elko.   As  they "would have to  cross the bridge or ford Elk river, they  guarded the bridge and made the arrests (  while the fugitives were attempting to  swim across the river.

Pari?, March 30.���The Echo de Paris today publishes a sensational dispatch from  Copenhagen, saying that a plot against  the czar of Russia, in which his mother  and the head of the holy synod are implicated, has been discovered. The object of  the conspirators was to take advantage  of the state of the czar's health to remove  him from power, and confide the government to his uncle, who is classed as a  notorious- reactionary. The mother of  the czar is a daughter of the king of Denmark -and a si.ter of the priuces-s of  Wales".

ONE   OF. NEW   DENVER'S   HOPES.  The Mollie Hughes Group.  But few persons are aware of- the fact  that an important discovery of mineral  has been-made upon the Mollie Hughes  group, yet, on account of its being, upon  the extreme water's edge it will not avail  much unless it be developed by a shaft  and tunnel driven from the inshore. The  discovery was made by, Messrs. Avison.  and Sheran, two of the owners, find there  is exposed ten' inches of high-grade ship-*  ping ore, carrying galena and copper. At  high water it will be completely sub-J  merged. It is on the Kinkora claim and  about 75 feet to the east of the old landing place on the creek. Now that the water is low, the showing looks most attractive, and! it can be seen- extending  some distance   uiider the   lake. _Tjje_  Mollie Hughes -group -consists of eight  claims, five of which have been  crown granted. Four well-defined  leads have been uncovered and traced on)  the group, upon whicli more or less work'  has been done, exposing pay ore on each  separate vein. Felix Hughe'-, and afterwards the Northwest Mining Syndicate,  did an immense amount of exploratory  work, demonstrating the richness of the  property by the Several shipments made.  Good cabin.', and trails are a portion of  the general assets. The Kinkora claim  takes in the water frOnt. and has had  much attention paid it, A shaftsevenby-  five feet deep on the vein, gives a pay  chute of eighteen inches, whicli, however,  becomes somewhat barren at the foot.  The old Hughes workings were further developed and are s toped' by the Northwest  Milling syndicate: Theore on this claim  will average upwards of 100 ounces in  silver* with additional copper and gold  values. On tlie Mollie Hughes claim, the  bulk of the work has been done, consisting of two or three tunnels and a number  of shafts, one of which is down seventy  feet. This has been sunk on a contact of  slate fifty feet wide, between true walls  of granite, and it is from this that the  richest ore has been taken. For forty-  five feet in the main shaft there is a  twenty-six inch paystreak, which gave  smelter returns of 550 ounces of silver,  with copper and gold values besides. On  the Pinto and Real Idea two other veins  carry gold Values running $108 to the  ton. About ten tons of this  has been sacked and is in the old cabins,  while much more is on the dumps. A carload of ore can be easily gathered up and  shipped from the various dumps. The  returns of the two carload shipped by the  Northwest Mining Syndicate went to the  owners, who are now considerably ahead  of the game. They purpose doing much  work, placing four men drifting and  stoping ore in the shafts, thus paying for  the general development. The Mollie  Hughes is certain to develop into a huge  property, and the company fortunate  enough in securing'it will reap rich and  steady dividends.  The   Enterprise   gFoup   on  Ten   Mile  creek, is the most extensively developed  property on Slocan  lake, and by many is  looked on as one of the big mines in the  Slocan, having pre reserve's sufficient to  last many years.   There are two claims in  the group, the Slbcan Queen and Enterprise, both of which are crown granted.  They were located on July 18th and 19ih,  1894,-by R. I. Kirkwood and J. L. McKinnon, who were prospecting the country  -from the Cody divide.   They found rich  float upon the surface, on the south side  of Ten Mile, and tracing it,up uncovered  the vein, which   was afterwards traced  along the face of the hill  in either direcr  . tion.   There is another vein, much larger,  i about 200 feet to the west and paralleling  cthe No. 1 lead, out no work has been done  on it, beyond the demonstration that it  carries concentrating values. The smaller  ,vein is a true fissure, and can be easily  traced   the entire   distance of the group.  The. gaugue, what  little there is of it, is  quartz,  the walls, being a dark micaeous  .granite, shading into the syenite characteristic of the neighborhood.   The ore is  both    fine  and   coarse   grained   galena,  carrying a large amount of zinc blende,  which holds the best silver values.   It is  generally found on the i'ootwall..  Kirkwood and McKinnon kept this find  a secret for a time, but upon the news get-  tingoufc a rush to the new camp resulted  "and many fine claims were located, among  them being the Iron Horse. Mabou, Ohio,-  Bondholder,-Neepawa, etc. After much  laborious work, as supplies had . to be  taken from New Denver by rowboat to  Ten Mile and then packed by the men up,  the rough creek, the locators commenced;  development, starting.two tunnels, and  making a number of open cuts, exposing!  the vein and cleau ore right to the surface.-  A .trail was built up the creek and-many,  other preliminary duties attended to.,  The property became muclr talked about  , and the invariably.high.-assays,secured,  'servedto'stren'gthen the' high repute "of  the find. In October, 1895, J. A. .Finch  took a bond of $25,000 on the group,- making a lOper cent payment down. He at  once put a force of men on cutting out a  good pack-trail and putting up the necessary buildings. During the season of 1896  he shipped two carloads -of ore from the  Enterprise to the Omaha smelter.the returns of which were paid Messrs. Kirkwood and ' McKinnon.- The shipment  netted about $3500, or $80%per ton. This,  considering the cost of packing down to  _ the lake and' high, charges,'Vvas considered  marvelous, and * demonstrated the immense possibilities'.of mining in the-  grariite belt of Slocan 'lake, which has  since been made.certain by the great success attained by. the operators of the  Enteprise.  . '.  The bond-was taken up by Mr. Finch,  and since then general development has  been carried out systematically and al-'  most continuously. Upwards of 1000 tons  of ore have been shipped, paying every  expense;and.lea$ingDa bandsome.credit to  .tlie gBodh In(th(ekiipi0er\bi ��)7"a wagon  =road^*^as=buirt4'romithe=l-ike^t-o^the=miner  a distance of eight hiileS. which greatly'  lessened the cost of? transjiOrtatibn. A  fine wharf and ore shed aud chute were  built .at the landing, and larger dumps,  ehute-v'offices and bunk-houses at the  mine. In June of that year D, M. Hyraau,  a leading n_ihing man in .Colorado, purchased a-half iriterest in the Enterprise  upbn the advice"-"of (D, W. BriintOn, of  Aspen, Oolorado.ia pfcominent niining engineer. Mr.Hynfan paid $300;000 for his  purchase. Since then there" have been repeated efforts ihad6 by pjitside parties to  secure"control of fthe group.  At the present time the buildings on  the property aretsomni0dious and up-to-  date. Vast development lias taken place  in the mine, givingbre reserves Unequalled  by any other Slocan property and demonstrating the mo$t continuous and extensive ore chute yet uncovered in the West.  Workings of- varibuT nature have been  opened up on the vein from one end of the  group to the other, and all are connected  by good trails��and furnished with blacksmith shops, ore dumps and other permanent Works. The vein, has been proven  to a vertical depth of more than 500 feet  and 1500 feet in length. There are seven  tunnels, and these with their upraises and  connections, and various shafts, give  about 4000 feet of drifting. Most of the  work has been done on the Slocan Queen  claim, proving the vein to descend with  regularity and high grade. While an  average width of clean ore is given at one  foot, there are several places wliich show  three feet of the shipping article. One or  two faults have been met with and successfully passed through and there are  but'few places where the ore does not  show coutinually. No. 1 tunnel is in 100  feet, No. 2, 900 ; No. 3, OOO; intermediate,  300 ; No. 5, 800; No. 0, 125 ; No. 7, a crosscut to catch a new chute exposed by a  test shaft near the top end of the Enterprise, 200 feet. At the lake landing there  is 920 tons of ores in bulk and fully 1500  tons on the dumps at the mine. In almost  all the working!-* the ore is left standing  intact. Preparation for stoping has been  made in two or three of the tunnels,  giving room for 200 men to be. worked.  Special attention has been paid to the  conducting of fresh air,   which  is good  everywhere.  A conservative estimate places the  amount of ore blocked out at 40,000 tons,  which at the net returns supplied at first,  of $80 per ton, gives a fairly good idea of  the richness of the Enterprise. In the  No. 5 tunnel the vein splits off, the two  forks carrying nine inches of clean ore.  The vein on the Euterpri.se claim carries  considerable native silver, smelter returns  of 408 ounces having been obtained. The  lead also amounts to 18 per cent. Not  one-half of the surface has yet been tested, and it will be some years before sinking on the vein will be necessary. The  mine is" in a position to . pay immediate  and lasting dividends, sufficient to place  it in the front rank.       -  For the better <working of the property  the Iron Horse, situated between the Enterprise and the creek, should be obtained.  ���Then an excellent flat would be had for  the mine buildings, which are now located  principally round the No. 3 tunnel. A  tramway could be easily put in and advantageously worked, but as most of the  drifts are connected by shafts, the handling of theore can be done most cheaply.  A mill for tbe treatment of the zinc must  also be considered a necessity. Magnificent water power is available for all purposes, while the valley abounds in the  best of mining timber. An electric tramway up the creek could be built on an  easy grade and would yield big returns.  The success of the Enterprise in short  means the progress and success of the  whole granite area.  No -Need to Worry.  [Toronto Telegram, March 24t.li.]  There is not a doubt that if the rank  and file of the Liberal party west of Lake  Superior had been allowed to choose the  minister of the interior in the Laurier  government, Joseph Martin, now of British Columbia, would have polled an overwhelming majority over all competitors.  The people who carried the west for the  Liberal party in 1890 knew that they  owed nothing to the Canadian Pacific and  they wanted their" interests in the care of  a man who had never hesitated to stand  by the people against their oppressors. It  is easy to understand, then, that' western  liberal members should object to the-Win-;  .uipeg Free Press' assaults upon Mr. Mar-,  tin. It is not so easy to understand why  they should ask sir .Wilfrid Laurier to  interfere. The people of British Columbia,  are not extreme partisans, and their judg-!  ment upon the public acts of Joseph Mar-  -tin .will.not^'be-influenced by anything^  that -sir*. Wilfrid 'Laurier /may think or"  anything that the  Winnipeg Free Press  may say. ,The Free Press is owned  by  Clifford Sifton, who is minister of the interior in Mr. Laurier's government.

Toronto, March 30.���.The,News says edi-  torily: ','Living in a particularly ft ail  glass house, the Conservative journals  ,and statesmen who are throwing stones  at .the government's redistribution bill  cannot be accused of exhibiting any special wisdom.,. No more outrageous redistribution ibill was ever introduced than  the gerrymander act of the Conservative  government, and even they must admit,  themselves, that the* measure-is not at all  a fair, arrangement of constituencies.

Memphis, March 30.���The manager of  the Lee line of steamers has just announced that only three lives were lost by  the sinking of the Rowena Lee in the  Mississippi river, near Tyler, Missouri,  yesterday afternoon.   .  the Tribune.]���There  will   not  be  any trouble  here between the miners and mine owners  over the  recent legislation constituting  eight hours a day  work in the  undei-  ground   workings  of   the   metalliferous  mines.   The miners are confident that the  mine owners will accede to their, request  for"the maintenance of the same rate of  wages   for  the eight  hour day as was  formerly paid for ten hours, and that the  new order of things will go into effect on  April 1st.   Heretofore the miners of Rossland have been working for a lower rate  of  wages than that which obtained in  fche Slocan and Ymir camps, the Rossland  rate being $3 against $3.50 in the Slocan  and   at   Ymir    It   is   needless   to   say  that the working miners around Rossland  are very well pleased with the outcome of  their  efforts   to  secure the amendment  made to the act and its enforcement.  Slocan Mines Will Shut Down.  Sandon, March 30.���It is generally understood here that as a result of the  amendment made to the act respecting  the inspection of metalliferous mines, that  all the mines will close down at the end  of the present month. The intention of  the mine owners is to pay the men off and  close dow"n until some arrangement can  be made with the men whereby they will ���'  accept $3 per day for the eight-hour day,  instead ot $3.50 as formerly for ten hours.  If there was any prospect of matters being allowed to remain as they were, without any attempt being made by the min- '-  ers to enforce the eight-hour day, the *  mine owners of Slocan would not have contemplated shutting down, but as working  under the old conditions would have  placed the companies operating at the  mercy of anyone who had a spite against  them, the decision was reached to shut  down until the matter could be adjusted.  The Situation in Nelson.  The circumstance that J. J. Campbell  and M. S. Davys, of the Hall Mines, Limited, left for Rossland yesterday started  a rumor to the effect that in the event of  the eight-hour day being insisted "upon .  the'eompany would close down operations '"  at the Silver King.   Enquiries 'made at  the company's office elicited the information that so far as known no such decision  had been arrived at.  A, C. P. R. Pake Telegram.  The following was received by The  "Tribune today as au Associated Press  dispatch. It is the only news that has  occurred at Spokane for the last three  months that has been thought of sufficient  importance to telegraph papers that get  their press reports through Canadian'  Pacific sources. It will be used [all over  Canada as an argument against the Kettle  River Valley railway charter, and will  have more effect on Eastern Canadian  members of the house of commons than  auy resolution favorable to the charter  than can be passed by boards of trade in  British Columbia :  Spokane, Washington, March 29, via  Vancouver, British Columbia, March 30.���  It is reported here that president Hill of  the Great Northern Railway Company  intends to make this city a" smelting  centre, aud furnish all transportation  facilities required if the citizens will erect  the smelter. The idea is to prevent the  .smelting industry getting on a solid basis  in Southern British Columbia and incidentally to cut the Canadian Pacific  railway out of chis traffic. ,, =_   <���**>,  A Disgrace to Ontario.

Looks a trifle fishy, does it not?"  This is the same Canadian Pacific Railway Company that wants a monopoly in  the Boundary Creek country.  The Victoria Colonist, in discussing the  question of re-arranging the Dominion  electoral districts in the province, says  that it is surely not extravagant to place  the population of East and West Kootenay and the Slocan at 00,000. - We have  all along been under the impression that  the Slocan was a mining' division in West  Kootenay, but it seems that we have  been mistaken. -  Easiyand West Kootenay have not  got (30,000 population, nor more than half  of 00,000, 'But East and West Kootenay  have about the same population as has  the city of/Victoria. East, and West  Kootenay have no representation in the  house of commons, while the city of Victoria is represented in the house by.two  members. The Colonist says it would be  unfair to Victoria to take away" one of  the members in order to give East and=  West Kootenay a member. But what is  the use of discussing so momentous a*  question with a newspaper that knows so  little about the geography of the province  and that'makes such absurd estimates, of  its population.'  J.

SAVINGS BANK BRANCH.  CURRENT RATE OF INTEREST PAID  TATTOOED   WHILE   HE   SLEPT.  True Story pf a Painful Episode in the Life  of a Troop A Man.  There is nothing in the cavalry regulations which deals with tattooing,  and as  there was lots of time on board the transport which brought up some of the Troop  A meu, ifc was not strange that the troopers should engage the services of the negro  tattoo  artist  who happened to be  aboard. * This artist's  name  was George  Washington Jones, and his distinguished  characteristic aside from his color and his  skill in  tattooing, was his unqueuchable  thirst for stimulating drinks.   One of the  troopers was an old football man  with a  splendid  arm  for the display of George  Washington  Jones's skill, but he stead-  L fastly refused all oilers to have it decor-  L ated.   Mr. Jones pricked in a realistic picture of the Maine for $3, a pierced heart  with the initials of the piercer for $2 50,  and three plain initials for $2, which, coti-  sidering the fact that he had a monopoly1  of the business on the transport, was very  reasonable.  The football player who turned trooper  might   have   been   named Jack   Brown.  "None but the criminal classes resort to.  -tattooing," was Brown's invariable reply  to Mr. Jones' offer to do a good job for  him.   The second day out was warm and  someone'from somewhere produced alcoholic drinks, of which  not only trooper  -Brown, but artist Jones drank freely. Alcohol caused Brown to do tho very things  when "slightly, elevated," as he expressed  it,  that in -his normal condition he de-  .   tested.   As a sqber man.he not ou]ysdid  not smoke cigarettes but' he "shamefully  abused everyone who.did. . W^en.stimu-  . lated his first request was ioi; a .cigarette.  Thus it happened that onthe secong day  out, when Brown had quenched his thirst,  he  hunted  up  Jones  and gave him   an  order to tattoo the initials "J. B." on his,  arm near the shoulder.   Selecting a shady-  spot   oh   deck,   Brown   rolled   back Jits"  sleeve,   stretched   out  and   went  sound  asleep.   George Washington Jones'si  delight at the job  was so great  that  he  begged just one.more drink before going  to work.   Tlieii he settled himself on  the  ���deck beside Brown, -t ���       ? -   -,  Jones had such a.bad memory= that his  patrons   usually   wrote out for him the  initials to Jbe tattooed.   Brown had  neglected this  precaution.   The'gentle, rock  of the transport,-added to* the alcohol,  -. made Brown   sleep   soundly."-  He  shook  nervously when Jones began  work. bufc=  _ did not wake up.    It. was two hours later  -when trooper Brown awoke.   A�� his consciousness developed his language became  profane.   He accused.a" trooper near him  of having Lurned his arm .with ba Jighted  cigarette; "all that^fhp"^yserkWg��th'i_i''gli;i  are good for, anywJa"y��"\he"fcclcie'd.  "liM-f  _was-au_indication-that#Bi(owuMvas=sobei'.^  "Nonsense," said theXecusedp\kn ; "you  have    had    your   ^>y&effearti's��   initials  tattooed on your arni.V  ��3_Bey are *tvell  done.     What is her nrjt liame. Jack-'-  Gracie?!' .*�����."���. ���   ..��� '  "Not by a long shbtV'said Brpwn. twisting his head arouud.to see, the; letters on  his arm. As he saw the'letters G. W. J.  tattooed there his remarks' became Sultry.,  "Who in the devil is G. W,"*J> and why  are those initials on my arm ? Here,  Jones, you scamp, wild put lip this game  on me? If you dou't. tell me Ihe truth  I'll kill you sure."   " " n ;  "It was jus' this -way* MaSsa Brown,"  said Jones. "I reck'leet nojy*. Yoii see,  sah, I have povv'ful bad memory, sab. I  clean forgot your initials, ah' I reraeiliber  iiiy own, an' I put them^ ori. I'm kxf fiil  forgetful an"'--bnfc Jones's conclusion w.i.'.'a  yeil of fear as Br.dvvn started for him.  The trooper raged and j.swore and  scrubbed his arm until it began to swell,  but it was of no use. The G. W. J. resisted bravely. It happened that he was  and is engaged to a girl whose Initials are  nob G. W. J., and he wondered Eosy he  could explain his tattooing. He said no-"  thing about it. It was an unpleasant  duty and he shirked it. . When the right  time came he would tell the story. For  the rest of the trip on the transport and  since landing the other Troop A men have  insisted on calling him George Washington Jones.  Brown is an enthusiastic handball  player, and when he gets an opponent  worthy of his skill he rolls back his sleeves  and plays for all he is worth. He was  playing in this fashion in a Brooklyn  court one morning , last week when the  young lady whose initials are not G. W.  J. called tosee him for a moment. Brown  came rushing out to see her with his  sleeves   still rolled   up,   and she   began:  "Jack,   I  just   wanted   to   tell  you"   Then came a pause, and she changed her  tone and style and continued, "Mr.  Brown, who is G. W. J. ? Don't you speak  a word to me 1 Who is she! Tell me ab  once."  "Heavens," said Brown fiercely. "I  didn't want yon to see that."  "Of course not, Mr. Brown," said the  young woman. "They are the initials of  some of those horrible Porto Rican people.  G., yes, Gonzales, that's what ifc is. Don't  tell me, sir. I know something about  Spanish names. Gonzales! I hate the  name! I never want to see you again,"  and out she flounced.  Brown thinks slowly. Two days later  he called at the house of the young  woman whose initials are not G. W. J.  and with him was a colored man who confessed to those initials. Moreover, Brown  brought affidavits from teu Troop A men  describing the way in which the initials  happened to be on his arm. A protocol  was arranged and this was followed by a  definite truce. The negro who had been  in at the protocol pocketed $5 and returned to the livery stable, where ho has  worked for ten ye_j.rs. The youug woman  has told all her friends about the way ih  which the initials happened to be on  Jack's arm and Jack smiles and says,  "Yes, that's right," every time he hears ifc  told. She really does tell the story much  as ifc is told above. The Troop A men,  after signing the affidavits, said they had  done their duty by Jack, aud, moreover,  they had nothing more to say about it.

Soon there was a rustling sound in the  passage ; ifc stopped at my door, aud someone spoke.     "Sahib,  the chief calls."    I  immediately pufc on niy hat, and followed  the servant into the garden.    There was  the Nawab  with his golden lantern, the  prime minister and the private secretary,  laud the bodyguard.  - The Nawab said, "I  thought you would like to see a nautch."  So I joined the procession, and we wended  our  way   through  another  part of the  garden, past dusky sentinels, and into a  walled inclosure,   with still another, in:  closed with kanats ; but these "were unlike  those used for pig-sticking, as tbey were  covered with most elaborate designs on  both sides.iu.red,* green and lilac, orange  and black.   The" ground was covered with'  carpets and rugs, and under a shamiana  at one end were spread gold-embroidered  rugs and pillows on which to sit. - Lamps,  were ranged in fcwo rows nearly half the  length of the inclosure. The servant with  the box of cigars  being at hand,  we all:  had a smoke.   ',*_-.' -  The Nawab took,his.seat in the middle,*  and motioned the prime minister to hisn  left, .the  private .secretary to his-right.  Spaces were reserved for, others to come,  later, and the, bodyguard were divided,  some behind and the rest in two ,rows to  the right and left of, tho middle.. Just,  "outside there was a rustling of silks, and,  the chink-chink, chihk^chink of bell anklets.' V In' came ten or twelve liautch girls,*  all "glittering with gold and silver.   The,  rich colors of their costumes were not apparent   until ythey    emerged    into   the  .sfcrongerligut. " All salaamed .to the Nawab. ' At a sign they=sat down, always ih  a row, each one spreading her twenty-fivei  yards of skirt carefully about her feet,;  and arranging and re-arranging her .sari,!  which is a "shawl���-in this case of- gauze ���  covered with gold and silver tinsel���used  for cohering the head and shoulders, and,;  . very-.often,;lhe^ face.; 6Then"hdji-k-dpzen,j  fcuusjciahs",entered', with" strange "fi^dlfesi"  -dra.as=and-cymbal'?.^^  aiid hunninj* oyer passages of strange mii--  sic, fullof trills, arid ;g^acg-;nptes,Vprdduc-  iugVplaintjive and "weird haifm"c.ri_ej|.'"  Ac a sign from, a coiifidential sfervant  who sat behind; the Na*>ya;b, Wft; vylib had  charge pf all amusemehfcs,." tVo of the;  nautch gii'ls rose and came forwai-dwitli  a swauV'ing step peculiar" "to them/ahd' accented greatly by the fullness and shortness of't��h 3 skirt, under which they wore  baggy trousen-5; ITlie .nlusieiahs stood  only a few feet behind- tfae.dancerf*, and;  .after the saris were, properly ^arranged,  and the instruments, ihcltidirigthedrunis,  were in perfect; accord, the dancers tin.tied* and reverently touched each instrument, and then the breast and head, in  homage td tlie art.  Then the inugic began to vibrate in  strange, subdued, undulating minor trills,  suggestive of an i^oliah harp sinking to  the fitful pulses of a summer breeze. The  dancer began k short forward-iand-back-  ward step, accented by the jingling of the  anklets, the swaying of the skirts and a  remarkable fiexabie movement of hands  and fingers, which were held as high  as the head or slightly above it. The  bead swayed gently from side to  side* and every movement was in time  with the music* This continued fbr perhaps ten minutes, during which time  each of the musicians in turn sang in a  most distressful manner certain passages  of the song that always accompanies a  dance. Then each girl in turn sang a  verse, interrupted now and then" by a  solo from one of the musicians. So they  went on, from half an hour to two hours,  according to the wish of the Nawab.  Then one or two other girls were called,  and went through the same sort of performance, each dancer having her own  musicians. To the uncultivated ear such  sounds grow monotonous, and tbe motony  induces gentle sleep, indulged in by all  the company, including the bodyguard,  in spite of, or on account of, the fact that  the songs are classic lyric poems, sung by  the best singers in Sankrit, Udru, atid  Hindi, and by the ordinary singers in the  colloquial tongue of the district. As at  European entertainments the best is al-  NELSON BRANCH  A general banking business transacted.  Savings bank department.  Deposits of $1  nnd  upwards received  and interest  allowed.  J...M.

But the nawab, I  must say, seldom slept, and he kept me  so constantly supplied with cigars that I  managed to remain awake, although I exhausted all the small talk at my command  before morning. To have taken leave  would have been an unpardonable breach  of etiquette.  It appeared that the .monotony so depressing to a European is a most delightful recreation to the Oriental. As all  things must end or change; in some way,  so, just as the dawn began to soften the  shadows and silver the lights on the distant group of nautch girls, as they sat  half dozing in the background, the Nawab  arose and made a slight motion with his  head..- The music and singing ceased ; the  girls arose, salaamed, and slowly disappeared in single file. As the last jingle  of fche silver and brass faded away, ih  perfect silence we wended our way to the  palace, where all but the bodyguard took  their leave.  The Nawab.'turning to me, said : "You  must find it very warm sleeping iudoors.  I sleep outside on top of the palace, and  you'd better come up with me."  So up I went, and there, under a large  swinging fan. were two cots placed side  bv side. He pointed to one, saying,  "That is for you."     -  WINTER   ON   THE   RAILROADS.  other physical characteristics. Neither  do these figures apply to the fast freights,  which nowadays enmes from San Francisco to New York fully as quickly as a  letter and nearly as quickly as an unincumbered passenger can make it.  "The   minimum   number of  ears to a  train is reached during the most severe  winter weather.   Then the average falls  down   to  about forty-five.   Durinjg  the  coldest weather of this winter we did not  dare to use more than forty to a train, I  should say.   It's all right as long as the  train is kept iu continual motion, but the  moment it stops the trouble begins.   The  oil that lubricates the axles congeals so  that the train is what we call frozen after  ifc stands for a short time.    I have seen  every wheel in a train slide, and the cars  must not exceed in .number those that the  motive power can start with  the brakes  set.    You see it costs as much money and  energy to run a train of forty cars as it  does one of eighty cars���very often more.  This means that in a traffic of 1700 cars a  day it takes forty engines in winter to  twenty   in   summer,   and   train   crews,  switching   facilities,   storage  room   and  operating expenses all in proportion.   Besides all this, there are always delays and  complications coming up that are directly  traceable to the cold.   Frozen steel is almost  as   brittle as so   much glass, and  everything from the rails up is subjected  to a greater strain when in this state of  contraction.   Valves and pipes filled with  hob steam freeze with incredible  speed  with the thermometer at 15 degrees below  zero, and the locomotive going afc the rate  of twenty miles an hour.   Engineers are  held as strictly accountable as ever, but  these accidents do happen to the best of  them, and each accident causes so much  additional delay.  "There is only one thing worse than cold  weather and that is cold weather with  snow.   For   its  size and capabilities an  The Tremont Hotel  engine in a snowstorm is the most helplessly stupid  thing imaginable.   A locomotive  dot", not push the snow to one  side and make a path for itself.   It seems  to wallow around in it and take most of  it along with it, apparently for the purpose of decorating the running gear.   Ifc  isn't long before an engine is loaded down  with half a ton of ice, and throughout  the train the friction causes the snow to  melt just enough to freeze tighter than it  ordinarily would.   The break blocks accumulate enough ico to make the wheels  slide, and if the train ever comes to a halt  in this condition she is apt to stay right  thereuntildugloo.se.   Losing trains isn't  so bad, but our busy day comes wheu we  begin to   find them again.   There is not  only the point of congestion to overcome,  but it must be overcome with  the least  possible delay to the traffic that continues  to pour in upon us from both directions.  "On the whole,"  concluded   the train  despatcher, "you'll  see why there is no  bluebird in the land more gleeful  than I  at the approach of warm weather."  governor-general rules Canada.

Foley Brothers & Larsen have  secured the contract for the building of  the Great Northern cut-off to the east of  Wenatchee, Washington, and Burns &  Jordan will sub under them on the work.  A representative of the Trail smelter  was in Nelson today for the purpose of  securing a quotation from the West  Kootenay Brick &Lime Company for the  delivery of several thousand brick. It is  not likely that the local company will  make any effort to fill the order. The  output of the* company's yards will probable hot exceed 2,000,000 brick this year,  and the company is confident that it will  find a better market locally for the entire  output.  H. D.

Tho preliminary hearing in tho case  against Mrs. Mary Mallette upon the  charge of keeping a common gaming  house at the Kootenay hotel was disposed  of at one o'clock today, after having occupied one and a half days. The prosecution was brought by an Italian vvho lost  Sjvl.'J iu a game of ai*.*s, and was conducted  by li. M. Macdoimhl. Tlie del'i'iireof Mrs.  Mallette was looked alter by S. S. Taylor,  Q. C, who contended that a prima facie  case had not been made out, as it was not  bhown tli.it the defeudant kept a gaming  house or benefited in any way out of any  gaining which might go on in the house.  He held that the action of any men in a  hotel in playing games of chance for the  purpose of ascertaining who should pay  for the drinks did not make any hotel a  common gaming house. Magistrate  Crease held, however, that a prima facie  case had been made out and that it should  go to the next court of competent jurisdiction. He fixed the bail of Mrs. Mailette  at $400 in herself and two sureties of $200  each.  ,__  BUSINESS   MENTION.
