 BSl  A.  QUEEN'S BIRTHDAY AT KASLO  WILL   BE   CELEBRATED.  Sp cial to The Tribune.  Kasi.o, April 8.���A largo  and   enthusiastic meeting Avas held last night to consider ways and means for our annual celebration on the queen's birthday.  Mayor  ilartin    presided   and   James   Anderson  acted   as   secretary.    After considerable  discussion, a .general committee of seven  was appointed as follows: mayor Martin,  li. I<\ (ireen. M.F.P., \V. K. ilodder,  \V. .1.  Twiss. II. B.   Fletcher,   l<\   IS.   King,  and  James Anderson.    Tins   committee   is to  have sole power to  make  such   arrangements a.s they may   see   lit   to  assure a  .successful   celebration.      It   is   expected  that about $800 in cash subscriptions can  be raised.    The day's sports will be made  up of Caledonian games, baseball   match,  hose reel contests  and   other interesting  features, and altogether Kaslo will   offer  as good or a better celebration   than   her  sister towns ou that date.  J. A. Whittier of the Goodenough  Mines has returned from the east accompanied by liis wife, who has been on a  pro ti'acted visit to friends.  F. J. Hill, accountant at the Whitewater -Mines, has returned from a two  weeks' trip to Manitoba.  Theappeara nee of the C.P.R. surveyors in  Kaslo caused eonsiderablespeculativetalk,  and some people a re "jumping at the conclusion that the Canadian Pacific will have  a road running to the upper end of  Kootenay lake before next .winter, but  the general opinion is that they are playing a game with their competitors, who  are backed by the Great Northern, for  the control of the business of the Lardo  country.  It is stated tliat the True Blue mine,  controlled by the Halls Mines, Limited, of  Nelson, has- closed down, * tlie result of  some trouble between the Hall Mines  -management and the superintendent, Mr.  Stephenson, who was the former owner.  The St. Patients Inn, which has been  vacant for over a. year, has beeu leased  by Mrs. Davis, and opened as a. boarding  house.

Ottawa, ���"* April 8. ��� The Dominion  government has been advised from Dawson City that out of the four murderers  awaiting execution there have died. The  eldest of the three Indians and the boy  are dead. The decision of the cabinet in  granting a commutation to the boy and  allowing the law to take its course in the  case of the other two Indians a-nd Mender-  son had not arrived until after the date  set for their execution, and therefore  judge Dugas bad them respited until  August 2nd next. It is not expected  that either of them will be living at that  time. This is the third respite. The  first respite for one day was because of  the execution going* to take place on Ash  Wednesday.' When the next arrived, the  legal objections were such that a respite  was granted until March; and now a' further respite is given. Henderson is dying  of consumption.  The Rails on the Crow's Nest Road.  Associated Press. r  ' Montreal, April 8.-���Sir William Van  Home, president of'the Canadian Pacific  Railway Company, was asked by a correspondent if he had read the Kossland  Miner's charges regarding the use of old  rails on the Crow's Nest Pass road. Sir  William's reply was as follows : "When  the Crow's Nest line is fully completed, it  Avill be just as good as the best sections  of the main line; but Ave have learned  better than to put our heaviest rails ou  new" earthworks, where they Avould bo  damaged'during construction and early  operation. On a great part of the Crow's  Nest, line, the heaviest rails are already  liid, ar.d the rest Avill follow in due  course, as soon as we deem it wise to put  them down."  England Wont Swap.  Associated Press.  London, April 8.���The Globe this afternoon refers to tho absurd reports that  Knglnud might change her possessions in  the West Indies for tlie Philippines. The  paper says * that.such an exchange for  England would amount to giving the  desirable for the undesirable. - /The  British ' West Indie;., it" "asserts^  have not the slightest wish  to change tlieir sovereignty.

Associated Press;  London, April S.���The report of baron  Cromer, the British agent aiid consul-  general in Egypt, is looked upon as being  -a wonderful story of progress^ and the  triumph of administrative foresight and  military vigor. He advocates extending  the rail road'from Jj-.harfcoi.iii through Abu  Harels to Godarif and Kassala to Suakiin,  and thus tap the territory about the  upper Nile, which sir Samuel Baker called  '���the granary of the Soudan." The British  agent also makes a significant remark,  tliat school statistics show that French is  flying out as the language of the middle  classes, and English lias already largely  taken its place.

Of this amount $2,.'_(57 Avent  to John' Appleton of 'Winnipeg,' and  !)>2,'JS3 to judge Dugas.      ���   *  Special to The Tribune.  r.Miu, April S.���The Rio Grande group,  consisting of the Rio Grande, Champagne,  Sau Daulphin and Floral Float mineral  claims, is situated about one mile from  Ymir, on Porcupine creek. The two  quarto ledges, which are from 15 to 20  feet in Avidth, show'values in gold, silver  and lead of from $20 to .-j! 10.50 por ton.  Development work has been vigorously  carried on since the beginning of the  year, and the force of men is now steadily drifting on a "new level. This company will be a shipper.during the coming summer.  The well-known Elise property is showing  tip  Avell  under "i*eceiit development,  the vein having beeu tapped at a  depth,  of about 350 feet and a magnificent body  of high-grade ore exposed.  On the Early Bird development work  is being carried on. Tn the tunnel there  is six feet of solid ore.  In the Nip-aud-Tuck property, owned  by the London & Ymir Gold Mining  .Company, Limited, there is a well-defined  quartz lead in the tunnel, -which is in  o\rer 80 feet.  A property rapidly coming to the front  is the Good Hope, situated only a short  distance from the New Victor. A crosscut tunnel has been driven over 100 feet  and the lead expected to be struck at  any time. The Good Hope ledge is most  remarkable for straight uniformity and  continuity. Starting on the Fog Horn,  it is traceable in a northeasterly course  across the llalny Day property, through  the Good Hope property, and for half a  mile beyond it. At no place -where the  ledge crops out is it less than five feet  wide.    It assays from $10 to $105.  Work is to be started up shortly on  the Birthday, situated about three-quarters of a mile from the railway track.  The ledge is 20 inches wide and tlie owners are Sam Gibson and E. Peters.  Development work is to be resumed  immediately on the Nevada mineral  claim, which recently applied for a crown  grant.  The  assays from  samples taken from  the neAV ledge of the Great Western   returned $12.30 and $20.  ] On   the   Wilcox   steady  development  Avork is being proceeded with.  At the Tamarac drifting,,is being continued on the 200-foot level.  The directors of the Dundee Gold Mining Company arc expected in Ymir this  eA*ening, Avhen it is anticipated orders  will be at once given to start Avork in the  miue and mill, and also that the necessary machinery resulting from loss by  the recentrfire Avill be ordered:  The , Por to B.ic'Q��� expects to resjime  Operations' eli'iiy hext'iixbhth. -  THE AUDITOR WAS OVERRULED  AND   ACCOUNTS   PAID.

The German government  earnestly urges the speedy appointment  and despatch so as to prevent_fui'thor_  x \ il. ic ill WeW^yiT^fSFlign office official,  empowered to speak for the  govei-hmen, tells the correslpondent of the  Associated Press that the action' of the  American and British officials at Samoa  is a clear violation of the Samoan Act,  and that Germany intends to adhere to  this views and considers the new government Of Samoa illegal, and that she has  so instructed her .ambassadors at Washington and London.  Has Sesigned Office.  II. F. Tolmie, mining recorder of the  Nelson division, has sent in his resignation, to take effect oil the 15th. Mr.  Tolmie has given good satisfaction as an  official, and if he took a too active part  iii politics, it was because he Was, in a  great measure, forced to do so by his  friends in Victoria. Mr. Tolmie will probably remain in Nelson and engage in a  business in Avhieh he Avill be his own  "boss." The mining recordership will  probably go to Duncan A. McBeath, who  is now a clerk in the office.  Special lo The Tribune.  Ottawa, April 8.���The auditor-general's report Avas presented to parliament  last niglit. There is considerable correspondence shown between the auditor  and the justice department over the payment of ah account of $350 to Messrs.  "Archibald <fc Howell of Winnipeg, for  their services in connection Avith the  commission for the investigation of the  Manitoba penitentiary. In the opinion  of the auditor it ought to have been a  personal matter between the Avarden and  his hiAvyer. but the end of it all Avas that  the auditor's objections were overruled  by the treasury board, and a cheque was  issued to "Archibald ���&��� HoAvell for the  amount. The auditor, also objected to  .the payment of $10 per day to Joseph  Pope, It. i\T. EAving, W. S. Parmelee and  W. F. King while at the Quebec conference, instead of their outlay, as per account rendered, but after some correspondence on the subject the- amount to  each Avas alloAved by the treasury board,  the auditor's objections being overruled.  Well Satisfied With Results.  T. Fleutot, a., mining., engineer from  Paris, and R. Mansfield, manager of the  Joker mine, returned to Nelson last night  from a visit of inspection to the property, wliich consists of the Joker and  Derby claims, situated on the south fork  of Kaslo creek, owned by the Excelsior  Gold Mining Company of London, of  ���which Mr. Fleutot is attorney in British  Columbia. The party left Kokanee  Landing on Thursday morning, going  across the summit from the Molly Gibson  mine, a total distance of eighteen miles.  A force of men has been at Avork all winter, and the development Avork on the  property consists of a 72-foot shaft ami a  drift on the ledge of 102 feet. The ore is  continuous for the Avhole depth of the  shaft and improA*cs~ in appearance with  depth. Messrs. Fleutot and Mansfield  Avere well satisfied "with the result of  their inspection, and will leaA*e, on _\lon--  day for Ktislo to examine the facilities  for taking in "machinery to Avork the  mint- to better advantage.' It is proposed  , to .start another tunnel of about 1000  feet to tap the ledge.at a "'depth hi' 700  feet from' the present workings. Mr.  Fleutot, although not accustomed to  traveling over mountain ridges and*, glaciers, expressed himself as having-had a  very pleasant trip. He was especially  delighted with the view from the summit, Avhieh he said excelled anything he  had ever seen before. They, brought  back a very fine looking block bf ore,  Avhieh will be sent to the Paris exhibition. ���  .^___ ���  Anot.hei; i-it-ar Ohaimbei; Session;  The-iiienibefsuif stlie"fi,iui^if<-0" coinijuttee  of the city council" held :a��� meefcing yestGr-  xlpy afternoon, and spen"()r���abbjit &jif.ee  liOiU'S In disdussing what avus supposed  to-be public business, but themajoi-if-y of  the nienibers of the committee "Vvoitld  neither coijsent, to allow the representatives of tlie press to be present nor communicate afterwards what transpired in.  committee.

The   most   important  testimony      given     at      the      hearing,  was   that   given   by  constable   Barnes.  After telling of the chase and capture of  the prisoners, he said thatthe next morning while at   Elko   he   had   a  talk   Avith  them.

I,. i.-arl-or, superintendent, resigned his position, and a committee Was appointed to receive applications for the office.  Alderman     Charles    Hillyer   is   Thk  Tribute's authority for the statement  that tip to the end of the first quarter of  the present year  the city council's expenditures exceeded  the revenues from  all   sources  by   over  $10,000.    In other  words this means that   the  city  has received close upon one-fifth of the estimated revenue for the entire year,  and  that  the city council has expended two dollars  for every dollar it has taken in, and has  nothing to shoAvfor theexpendituressave  the work done on the Summit flume and  upon   sewer   construction.    As   matters  stand, thepresentcouncil has anoverdraft  at the bank of over $10,000, and   for the  next three months it will   be  obliged to  carry    this   overdraft   and     keep     the  municipal     machinery     running     from  the      proceeds      of     miscellaneous    receipts,    police    court  fines,  water   rates  and electric light rates, as license renewals will not*fall tine until July 15th, and  real estate taxes will not begin  to come  in until August.  As an illustration of the methods of  the present council, it is worthy of note  that they have not yet taken the ratepayers into their confidence with respect to  the manner iu which they are conducting  the public business, while the former  council on April 2nd had published a  statement showing from whom every dollar was received, and to whom every dollar expended was paid and tlie service for  which it was paid. This year the council  has withheld this information, and applications made by The Thiuuxj. for such  a statement have been refused, first on  the ground that, it was not ready, and  afterwards on the ground that the information could not be made public before  it came before the council.  ������" At the request of The Tiubuxe, alderman Hillyer secured the following statement of the receipts and disbursements  for the quarter ending March 31st:  KKCBIITS.

Peck is incorrect. But  both audits show that the old council  managed to carry on the city's business  without a deficit; and the minutes of the  council will show thatthe present council  have spent more time in session duriug  the three months they haA*e been in ollice  than the old council did in tho twenty  months they held ofiice. But, then, the  old council was not made up of educated  gentlemen���they didn't ��� know how to  talk.:    . :     .  .

The lowest estimate made by the ex-  mayor for the work was $7500, as against  an approximate estimate of .f.1500 made  by the engineer avIio surveyed the line  for the Hume. And $7500 would have  built the flume had the old council remained in ollice.  HUDSON'S BAY  COMPANY.  <��__j_iP  INCORPORATED 1670.  Purity  .   TjiiB statement in the -\Ihn.r that the  -present city council has had to Jjroyide  funds to meet obligations incilrred by  'tlieiy   predecessors   to   the   amount   of  ,$1,3��,Q0Q ih not inie, no more ti'ue than the  .stateiAeiit that the city engiueei*, in Mine  ctises out of tGii, Was not al'lowGd, to carry  on work as 'lie had planned it. If the city  engineer  is j:esponsil.le for tliat statement, then the records in his own office will  disproreliisassertions. Everyplansublnit-  ted by the city engineer was either carried  put as planned,, or if altered,  the  alterations were made with his consent.    The  water works flume was frozen the second  time,   causing  an  outlay  of about  one  thousand   dollars,   simply    because the  present city officials would not profit by  experience.    Had they, there was ample  time between the first and  second interruptions to have made alterations in the  flume that would have   prevented  the  second freezing.    These alterations will  have to be made, and will not cost as  much as did the chopping out of the ice  during the second  interruption.    Surely  the old council can not be held blameable  for this shortcoming of their successors.  Much is  also  made  of two  audits; one  made    by    the    auditor    of    tlie    old  council aud   one   by  the  auditor of  the  present    council.

Now they  carry on their games of chance less publicly than in the days ol* captain-general  Macias, and so they scarcely attract tiie  attention of tlie Yankee traveller. In  order to see them he must peek into the  back room of the rum shop, hunt among  the hogsheads at tho wharf, Avatch the  counter "of the mountain roadhouse and  also hire a negro lad for a copper to point  out the cockpit.  Cockfighting   is  the   principal  island  sport.      From    November   until   April,  which'is. the season, these contests take  place every  Sunday and holiday, and always pack the spectators' benches.     For  an arena every village, however small or  far up in  the mountains, has  a dirt pit,  covered by a wooden roof to keep out the  sun in the dry and the  rain iu the wet  season.    On  tlie rough  board  seats the  spectators make tlieir bets, and incidentally yell themselves hoarse.    Often they  make  so much noise  that even the birds  get   frightened.      In    betting   the   men  never deposit their money.    All  wagers  are settled at the close of the afternoon  fights.    If a man   Wanes   to   back   the  smaller' Gird for a, peso,   by way of illustration,  he merely adds  to the generaf  confusion   by calling  at ,the  top, of* his  voice, "A peso on the baby."    His ears or  eyes then must catch an answer to his cry."  San Juan,  the capital, is. so crowded a  city that,norroom is"left within the walls  for a cockpit.  Sportsmen there must pay  ten coppers for a ride in a small  native  sailboat across    the  harbor  to  Catana,  where* an American'(lag waves above the  Tpit.    In  Ponce, on   the other  hand,  the  cockpit  is iii   Castillo street,   not  half a  block from   the headquarters  of lieuten-  anc-colouel   Hood,   in   the  centre of the  town.    Jose Nebo, owner and manager of  the birds and  pit, is a wealthy old Spaniard.    Behind the rickety board fence he  keeps  more than a  hundred game birds,  worth  from $3  to  $200  each.    For his  best rooster, Avhieh he is willing to match  against all comers, he has, in fact, refused  $200.    Half a dozen negroes take care of  liis game stocsk, clip their, back feathers,  polisii the natural spurs, aud keep the,  " string by which all bird*", iwe fastened adjusted  properly oil the Ic. g.   i<"i*equently  iSrelio fights Ms birds two days in the  ____we__lL_____--_^nda:y^^  charges an admission fee of twenty-five  cents, five more than the Sail Juan price.  Pdnce, winch i is something  of a sporting  toAvn, has still another pit atthe bay settlement.  l��iv the smaller villages and towns,  Avhere, according to tlie yative i?ports=  men, some of the best fights take place*  the |)it and birds are not always owned  by the S-ime man. At Agnail ilia, a town  of 10.000 'population on the West. coast,  for example, Rtti.Jqn Molinary is owner of  the pit, and his brothers, slstca-s, nephews  and neices have/ the fOosk.i's. In ail, the  family has 1QQ birds, whose total value is  more than $5000. ��� At Yautio. too, in the  back yard of the? hotel "25th of July,"  nam<_d in honor of tlie d.iy tho American  troops landed a few miles south At Guan-  ica, the .landlord has a pit for the sole  benefit of guests. Sunday visitors there,  accordingly, need only look out of their  back window in order to Avitness an afternoon of sport. Along the western  coast, the natives often hold fights between the birds of two towns for a purse  ���pei-haps1 of $50, $75 or $100. Such contests, held not more than once a month,  usually have an advanced admission fee  of seventy-five cents to civilians and soldiers alike. Further north, in the picturesque mountain village of TJtuado,  even the toAvn prisoners, until stopped by  general Henry, had cockfights for their  amusement in the jail.  Although cockfighting is 'the great  island sport, the natives also have other  pastimes. When the Americans first  came, in October, November and December, small boys Avere seen every day  matching coppers . in the street. But  iioav the youngsters are chased by the  police to some quiet* spot, such as the  shadow of a Spanish sentry box on the  ancient city wall. In the back room of  the rum shops inonte is a popular card  game.     At Ponce another widely played  game is styled by tho Americans Roman  billiards. Shot by a spring, an ivory  ball rolls to the top of an inclined plane,  like a slanting billiard table surface, and  then returning knocks down from one to  nine thick pins. Players bet either on  the total number knocked down or on  the odd or even number to fall. Yet in  all these games of chance, the wide open  feature so prominent at first has now disappeared.  One  exception, perhaps, may be made  to   the   foregoing   statement.     An   old  printer and newspaper man named Manning, avIio  travelled through   the  mountain districts  in February  on a pleasure  tour, often got more comfort on the road  at night  than in the  hot sun of midday.  One starless  night, therefore, found him  afoot in   the mountains.     On  the  outskirts of Adjuntas  at midnight he  Avas  surprised  to find a  stray pack  horse by  the roadside.    Further along iu the country, not more  than 500 feet, he discovered two more loose horses and also a flickering light in the middle of the highway.  An old Western mining camp prospector,  Manning naturally unbuckled his leather  pistol  coA*er,  for he   had  been, warned  against robbers.    He soon found, not the  blaze  of  a  brigands'  camp  fire,  but a  circle of six farmers  seated in  the roadway, deeply   interested  in  a   game   of  montc.    For a table they had:?, flat stone  lighted   by two candles.    Nor,  at his approach,  did the game  stop.    He had an  invitation to  take a hand,  but thanking  the Porto  Ricans, he  left them at their  wide open game.  At lilayague/., a pretty toAvn on the  Avest coast, the professional gamblers  reap a. harvest in copper and silver eveiy  Avinter at* the Foste de Candelaria. For  more than a Aveek the market, which is  by far the best on the island, is ovei-ruii  with thimble games, roulette Avheels,  prize-package' tables and all games of  such description. Nor prohibitory Jaw 'is  enforced- against the 'fakirs. Therefore,  like j the New .England country fair  sharpers, they offer the farmer a variety"  oT ways in Avhieh to lose his money.  Such Avas tlie situation this year, when  lieutenant-colonel Burke ofthe Eleventh  Infantry took command of the Mayaguez  district. He not only found the gambling  stalls in full blast, but also saw in them  the life and success of the fair. So, although the Puritanical training of his  boyhood days in Connecticut opposed  such widespread gambling, the colonel  decided not to interfere and thus break  up the native holidays. His decision, of  course, met with the hearty approval of  the toAvn merchants. Accordingly the  Keste de Candelaria, Avhieh extended  from January 23rd until February 2nd,  Avas held as usual, in IMayaguez this  Avinter.*  American gamblers, as a rule, have  had poor success in�� Porto JE-vico. After  the installation of general Henry as military governor hist October, two young  men went there With a dozen slot  machines; and then found the Alfonso  PIANO  OKG-AN  VIOLIN  GUITAR  MANDOlilN  BANJO"  AUTOHARP  ACOORDEON  VIOLIN BOW  STRINGS  or MUSIC  Call at our Store and we "will do the rest."

And  iioaa', played  Avith steel  disks  over  the  counter, the machines;  in cafes and  saloons,  scarcely  pay- expenses.    Craps,  dice  games and  stud  poker  seem to  be  more popular Avith  the soldiers.    But if  these games are run Avide open, they immediately find an enemy in the law.    At  San Juau    two American   saloons,   the  "Social Club" and "Soldiers' Rest," under  the  shadow respectively of the infantry  barracks  and  San  Cristobal  fort,  have  been  closed by  the police.    In  the "Soldiers' Rest,"   for two  months, the  craps  and   chuck-luck tables  were surrounded  day  and  night.     At  the  right   time a  poker  game can be Avatched in the back  room  of the  "Bob Kity.sinnnon.s"  saloon,  whose manager advertises  in a San .Juan  paper, "If you want protection from .Jim  Corbett,  eat at  the hMt/.sinimon.s  cafe."  At  IMayaguez,    however,   the   unlawful  games are run less publicly.    A  fat, red-  laced gambler, avIio had for a partner in  February  a  Chicago detective,, .reports  poor luck and expects  to return soon to  his old  ground in  Central  America and  Mexico.  In Ponce the soldiers .have' a poker  den of their own. Half a block from the  old Spanish barracks, the place is distinguishable from the private houses only  by a sign winch reads: "American Bakery and Lunchroom." True, in the front  room New England cakes, pies and  doughnuts are sold, but in the rooms back  of the bar is a complete roulette and  poker layout. Stud poker here is the  favorite game. An infantry first sergeant deals on the gray baize cloth, and  takes five cents from-every dollar of the  stakes for the house percentage. No  Spanish silver is played.  One American gambling outfit is in full  operation at San Juan. A little black  button, when' pressed, brings a negro ser-  'vant to the staircase, and, after an in  LUMBER  SljINGLES  All  kinds  In  . stock  SASH  DOORS  MOLDINGS  spection, he admits the stranger to the  den. Although in the wholesale business  district, the interior is furnished comfortably Avith imported rugs, chairs and  tables. The decorations include potted  banana and orange tree shrubs, huge  7_alms and the red, Avliite and blue. As  for game.**, the house has hazard for dice  throAver.s, poker tables, a faro bank, and  roulette. Roulette is played here almost  exclusively. At the opening night, when  the little ivory ball started around tho  mahogany, silver-trimmed wheel, the  genial proprietor remarked : "Von sec,  gentlemen, 1 am not an old hand at this  business." But the ivory (lew over the  polished surface so swiftly and smoothly  that even the speaker himself smiled.  Are the Jesuits in It?  "Inasmuch as an attempt is being made  in Europe to saddle the responsibility for  the Dreyfus scandal   upon   the  order  of  the Jesuits, most circumstantial accounts  having   been    published    of mysterious  visits of colonel   Paty  du  Clam  and   of  other adversaries of  the  revision  move-  inent to the house of the  order at San  Nicole  da  Tolentino, in   Borne,  for  the  purpose of  obtaining  instructions    and  papers, and also of equally mysterious  conferences asserted to, have taken placeCT  at Versailles  between   general  de Bois-  deffre and father Diilae, of the order, the  alleged object of this Jesuit  conspiracy  against   the   French   republic  being  to  secure a monarchical restoration in favor  of the duke of Orleans, or prince Louis  Bonaparte, it may be just as Avell to point  out that if the Jesuits have any candidate for the French throne, it is not the  duke  of Orleans, nor  yet, prince  Louis  Bonaparte, but Don Jaime, only  sou  of  Don Carlos.    Don,Jaime is, strange to relate, the only pretender  to  the French  ���throne  avIio has been  educated by the  Jesuits.
