Southampton, March 3.1.—The Stella,
wliich   belongs to  the London   A. Southwestern   'Railway   Company., left Southampton    yesterday  conveying   the   Jirsfc
excursion   of the season   to the  Channel
Islands.    There   were about   IS5 passengers   on   boa ni  and  the crew  numbered
thirty-live men.    The weather was  foggy
but  all   went well   until   the afternoon,
when   tbe   fog   became most ■dense.    .At
four o'clock the Casnet rocks loomed   up
through tho  fog bank,  and  the  steamer
almost   immediately   afterwards  struck
amidships.  • The captain, seeing that the
Stella,   was fast sinking, ordered the lifeboats   to.be launched.    Mis instructions
out with the utmost celor-
women nnd  children   wove
the  boats.    Then  the captain ordered tho men  to look after themselves.    A  survivor  states   that he and
twenty-five others put off from the Stella
in a, small   boat.    When   this boat was a.
short distance away from the wreck, the
boilers  of the  Stella, burst  with terrific
explosion   and the   vessel disappeared  in
the  sea.     The  last  thing  the  survivor
saw was the figure of the captain standing  calmly on the bridge giving orders.
The survivor interviewed, added: "The
suction     was   so    tremendous   that   we
thought  our boat would be engulfed.    I
saw  five boats and  the collapsible  boat
besides our boat leave   the wreck.    They
contained altogether between, fifty and
1.00 -passengers.    Five of the boats  were
soon   lost  to view,   but Ave  took a  boat
filled with   women in  tow, and   the occupants of our boat  took the oars  in turn
and    rowed  all   night,  until   most   of us
dropped   asleep,   thoroughly- exhausted.
We sighted a small boat at six o'clock in
the   morning,   but   the   Great Western
Railway Company's steamer Lynx, from
'Weymouth, had meanwhile hove in sight
She  bore down on us and took us all on
board.     She   eventually    landed   us   at
Guernsey."

frequently   heard   urging the  rowers to
pull for their lives.
The disaster is generally attributed to
the high speed at which the steamer was
travelling in the fog. The second mate
was the only officer of the Stella who was
saved. The captain and other officers,
most of the crew, and many of the passengers were lost.
Ciii.i.i.ouuc;, .March 31.- The tug Alar-
soulin has arrived here and reports having picked up a boat containing eight
passengers of the steamer Stella, which
was wrecked yesterday afternoon on the
Casuet rocks in a fog. All the rescued
passengers were suffering   from   injuries.

A   MODUS   VIVENDI
For   Fixing   up   the   Samoan   Difficulty  is
Receiving the Favorable Consideration of Three Governments.
Raise the Limit.
'Washington, March 81.—The delegates
from the Cuban assembly, Messrs. Villa-
lon and He via,, called informally at the
state department today, and had a long
conversation with secretary Hay. The
affairs in Cuba were freely discussed, and
the delegates presented the resolution of
the Cuban assembly. Secretary Hay
assured the delegates that the United
States government would not increase
the amount to pay the Cuban army above
the $3,000,000 already sent to Cuba. He
said that this matter could not be further
considered. He also informed them that
the president would not consent to any
scheme for raising money by the Cuban
assembly to pay the Cuban troops. Later
the secretary mentioned the call to presi-
dant McKinley, and the president informed him that there would be no other
or further answer to the delegation than
had already been given by the secretary.

A survivor of the Stellii .named Bush,
say§ that the Speed of the 'vessel ill the
fog Wits not diminished though the log
whistle was sounded. Bush' adds that at
3:30 a. in. the engineer shoAved him in the
engine room a dial i'egistei'ing a Speed of
IHi knots, and that the vessel struck
.within twenty-five minutes afterwards.
V°Bush further asserts that two lifeboats
were suiik With tlie steamer, 'which after
resting on tlje rocks fbr ten or fifteen
minutes, split in two and disappeared, lie said that wheno the
Stella disappeared forty or fifty
passengers were discovered clinging to
pieces of the wreckage .or cabin furniture,
arid crying piteously for help. All the
passengers and crew had been provided
Avith life belts and there was little panic.
He first slipped into the Avatei* and then
swam to one of the boats into which he
was helped. The occupants of the boat
rowed supposedly in the 'direction of
Guernsey, but seven hours later found
themselves near the Wreck, and saw
dozens of passengers clinging to the
rocks. The boat from which Bush was a
passenger was afterwards picked up by
the Lynx.
The passengers all agree that perfect
order and discipline prevailed on board.
The vessel's entire company took their
stations Avheu the A'essel struck and
served out the life belts and loAvered the
boats. The scene at the moment of the
sinking of the vessel Avas heartrending.
AVomen were screaming and praying, anil
people were clinging to spars and-other
wreckage in -other directions. Those 'who.
had succeeded in... getting into the boats
had a iuutoav escape from the suction
caused by the sinking vessel. The A'oice

large boulder weighing many tons rests
on the gorge road tracks, while between
it and the cliff there is a mass of shale
torn from the cliff. At the top of the

breaking away froin the cliff and probably will fall before many hours, the
seam having opoued up about three
inches since early morning. This rock is
many feet wide, long and thick and
weighs hundreds of tons. AVhen it makes

of the Buttery elevator are not running.
More Bones Recovered.
Ni-W* York, March 31.—Some bones of
a body were taken out of the ruins of the
Windsor hotel about one (.'clock today.
They were found near the bake shop, and
consisted of a, leg bone and. about ten
ribs, so small that some of them looked
like the bones of an animal, perhaps a
■sheep. However, the police were satisfied that the bones were those of a human
(body and they .Ave re. .put in a, coffinv and;

Washington, March 31. -A modus Vivendi for the settlement of the Samoan
troubles has been -proposed, and is now
under favorable consideration by the
three governments concerned. It contemplates the creation of a joint high
commission, consisting of one member
from each country, to pass upon the recent clash of authority and resulting disorder. The proposition, it is understood,
Avas put forward- by Germany, and it is
the second one submitted for the settle,
ment of the entire question. The first
proposition AA*as that the United States
and Great Britain join with Germany in
removing all the officials uoav  serving in!
Samoa through  whom  the troubles had :
arisen.    To  this  the United States and;
Great Britain   replied that as  their re-;;
spective  officials  Avere not  regarded, as
having acted in the  wrong, it could  not;
be  conceded  that  they should be Withdrawn  and   thus  discredited.    Noaa- the
new  proposition   is  presented,  to lea.ve
the A\diole (piestion  to  high commissioners, one from each government, the higli
commission to have supreme authority iii
reaching a settlement.     This aa-ouIcI suspend, for the time being,  the  authority
of the present officials in Samoa, so far
as  the  recent difficulty was  concerned,
and lea,Are the settlement  to  an  entirely
neAV body, free from prejudice, and with
such a standing as to giA*e  added Aveight

FRESH GERMAN ENCROACHMENTS
CAUSE   UNEASINESS.
Imprisonment   of  Missionaries   the   Excuse
Offered for the Extension of What is
Called a Sphere of Influence.
Pkkix, March  32.—in   consequence  of
the  recent attack   by   natives    upon  a
German patrol, a  small  German  expedition is being landed at La  Chan, a   coast
town, a short distance from Kiau  Chou.
The presence of  nearly the Avhole of  the
German fleet at Kiau Chan, it is believed,
indicates the possibility of extensive operations, and the Chinese in consequence
are  seriously  alarmed.     The  Tsung  Li
Yamen,  in  order to sIioav a desire to remove all possible causes of friction, has
dismissed three magistrates  voluntarily,
although   the   German   minister,  baron
Von Heyking, has been constantly pressing for their disgrace.. Tlie fearful ravages of the Yellow river flood Inwe caused
terrible misery and    discontent  inV the
pmvince of Shan Tung, and the native officials haArebeen unable to maintain order.
The landing of the Germans is  intended
to show the Chinese that if they are un-c
able to control the populace  it  is  necessary for the foreigners  to "protect theni-
seh*es.   The imprisonment of the German
missionary  near  the  German 'sphere of
influence, about Kiau Chou, is difficult to
explain, as the place mentioned,is within,
easy inarch of a  German   outpost.    The
Chinese fear that the present operations
Avill expand the German administration.
Spanish Residents Leaving Cuba.
Havana, March 3.1.—The steamerMont-
serrat sailed this morning for Spain, Iuia*-
ing on board 2S0 Spanish passengers,
formerly residents of Cuba and mostly
small merchants. This exodus is noticeable because of the numbers. There
have recently been at least three authentic murders of Spaniards in the country,
and in some.cases men of property ha\'e
been killed. If it is known who the murderers are, the fact has not deA*eloped,
though there are men in Havana who
'gtiy there is evidence* pointing to Cuban
soldiers being the guilty parlies. In the
past general Gomez punished murderer.,
of this kind with death, but since his removal the Cubans have been taking advantage of the lack of discipline to retaliate upon their Avar enemies, who arc-
still on the island.
Bi2i".j_i_\T, Alarch 3|.—The Gei-niaii press
having strongly intiiii.uted that, Mr.
White -tiid the Aiiiferican goA'ci'hnieiit
shOAved bad faith when they recently assured.the German .gOA^rumtiut that Cofi,--

Filipinos Will Be Made to Fight Filipinos.
VVASiMNtiTON, March <-!.—It is said at
the war department that with the capture of Malolos general Otis will not
make a, campaign during the rainy Season,
Uor is it believed that he will at present
chase the Filipinos into the mountain
fastnesses of Luzon. The officials consider it evident that all the fight tliat
was in Aguinaldo has been whipped out
of him, and it is believed that lie cannot
hold the Filipinos army together much
longer. A short rest will determine'
whether the Filipinos intend; to keep up
a guerilla warfare and if so a plan is
already maturing to meet any such conditions. Natives will be employed to fight
the guerrillas, and the government can
give them better pay and afford them
greater protection than Aguinaldo. There
is no doubt about the ability to employ
natives in this Avay. If there must be
guerrilla fighting during the rainy season,
Avhieh will soon be upon the Philippines,
the United States will not sacrifice its
troops in such warfare when the natives
can be obtained.

Pope's Resignation aiid Nelson Assizes.
[Spoviul to The Tribune.)
A'ictohia, March 31.--—Although superintendent of education Pope's resignation
takes effect today, no appointment has
yet been made/and premier Semlin says
none will be made for sonic time.
Nelson assizes are set for May 30th.

The Nettie L never looked better than
it does at present. A few days ago the
richest ore yet struck was encountered
in the drift. Ifc is heavily charged Avith
gray copper and will run over 1000
ounces to the ton in silver. This strike,
which is about three inches, in thickness,
is embedded in the other ore with which
the breast of the tunnel fairly glistens.
Billy Glenn is raAvhiding the ore down
from the property and is making good
lieadAvay.
The work of rawhidhig the Beatrice
ore down to Ferguson is not progressing
as favorably as it might, but it is expected that when Hugh McPhersou puts.-on
his fresh relay of horses at the upper end,
the work Avill proceed more rapidly.
Some seven horses are now at .work at
the Ferguson end and last night they
hauled in about four tons.
By the time the shoav is off the ground,
it is expected that work avi'11 be commenced on the Black Diamond at; the
head of the north fork aiid the Little
Robert and AVestfall groups located in
the saine.A'icinity.
The American and Morning Star Avill
be developed as soon as the season is
sufficiently advanced and the John L.
group near the former claim -will receive
a great deal of attention during the coin
ing summer. The former tAAro claims are
bonded to Rossland parties.
Many enquiries are being made regarding the tonnage, past, present^ and future
bf this district, and a vastly increased interest shoAvn in.the mining, development
of this section.
IiV" the Beatrice tunnel and shaft there
is a splendid showing of ore. From the
very grass roots this property has paid
and when supplies' are packed up and the
"men gel to work, ore will be made rapidly
with the present body.
DELEGATES   WILL   PROTEST
Against Eight-Hour Law.
A meeting of the representatives of the
several   mining  companies  operating   in
the vicinity--of Nelson was  held in the
Nelson Club yesterday afternoon for the
purpose  of taking  joint action- Avith respect  to the  enforcement of  the eight-
hour law.    The general opiniou'expressod-
at the meeting was that tlie operation of

to both the miners and mine owners/and
it was unanimously  resolved  to send a
couple   of delegates to   Victoria fbr  the
purpose of-urging the government tp suspend  the operation  ofthe amendment.

TROUT   LAKE   CONCENTRATES.
[Trout I.nko Topic, Murcli A5.J
Recently Dave Cowan secured the contract of running an 80-foot tunnel on the
Silver Queen, a very -promising property
situated on Great Northern mountain
and recently bonded-'-to James Dixon of
Vancouver. On Thursday last Dave,
accompanied by J. Hickman, Steve
Woods, Fred Johnson and George Spinles,
left the lake to commence work on the
property. These operations, it is expected, will open this promising little
property and put it in shape to commence
shipments.

An Australian writing of British Co*-
luiiibia says : "The folders of the C.P.K,
tell you there are thousands of hands
employed in the canning, fishing, lumbering nnd other industries- of- British CpJ-
Iunibia< but they take good care to omit
to mention that all the employees are
Chinese and Japanese, who will sopn

out tlie whites aiid making the country
an Asiatic settlement. Fngland is quite
indifferent so long as she obtains her own
selfish ends by halving an open door. She
has driven her own sons out of England
and is now seeking to drive them from
her colonies to make room for alien
races, who have nothing to offer in return,
but swarm the colonies with their pauper populations, so that a few nianufac-

wealth."

J.  J. .Campbell,   assistant manager  of
the Hall -Mines. Limited, and Al. S. Davys,
mine superintendent of the same  company, returned   from .Kossland last evening,  where they  Avere on   business  connected with  the movement for an eight-
hour day   for   miners  employed   underground.    Air. Davys, in an interview with
Tiik Titim-xi--. said that the mine.owners
of Rossland had not accepted the changed
condition so cheerfully as many supposed.
In the ease of the British  American Corporation,  Avhieh is operating the  Le Roi
and other properties, the eight-hour day
is  merely   being  given   a month's   trial.
The miners have stated that they could
do  as much work  in an  eight-hour shift
as in ten hours, and Air. Carlyle, who is in
charge for the company, has merely consented  to ascertain whether this is so or
not.    He proposes to Avork the properties
of the B. A.  C. on the eight-hour basis
for one month, and if at the end'of the
month it can be shoAvn that its labor has
not cost the mine any more than formerly, all will be Avell; but in the OArent of it
being  shown   that  the  change  has   increased  the cost  of labor,   the Avages  of
the _uen AA'ill be reduced or the property
"will- be shut down.
J. B. Hastings, themanogerof the AVar
Eagle Company's properties, has also consented to the change, but he will act in
conjunction Avith the other mine owners
throughout the country, and should they
decide to make reductions in the Avages
of miners the War Fagle company will
folloAV suit.
Air.-Davys found at Rossland that the
goA-ernment inspector of mines was already taking steps to enforce the pro\ds-
ions ofthe act with respect to the eight-
hour day. Instead of the government
waiting for some pronouncement upon the
question from the mining sections, he
found that the inspector had recei\red a
communication from the minister of
mines in which his attention Avas called
to the amendment'made to the inspection of mines act, and he Avas instructed
to enforce it. AVhile iu Rossland the in- 5
spector' notified'the representatives bf ,
the Hall Alines that-the company would
be required to comply with the eight-hour
hnv, and it is thought that within a...
Aveekhe will take-steps ."to enforce, compliance.  _. '"-'"■.--'-"'-
With   respect  to  the statement  that"
the miners ompIoyed*at the; Silver- King
were dissatisfied, or more poorly paid than  ;,
the miners in any other part ofthe coun-    '
try, Air.-Davys said that it   was not correct.    Over 70 per cent of the miner., employed by the coinpaiiyweVe on contract*  =
work.    This   work   was  let "so that  the.
men faking it could inake'Vfroni   $3.50, to.
$,4»pei\rlajy,aiid (luring the month  of Fe-
"bikftVj^y ",tlie°ineii   enipJoyed'on - contract "
work La]v0ra ged $1.10 per day.  "Just what,
action the Vllall  Alines  Avill take in the
"event bf  yhb  eight-hour hnv   being  enforced   Avill "probably depend  upon  the
Conclusion, arrived  at by the other mining companies  throughout  the  district.
They will take joint  action and   make a
uniform   reply   to   the  demands  of   the
men.

The Appeal Dismissed.
The full judgment of justice Alartin in

the appeal of William Braden   from the
decision   of Hon.   G- B.   Alartin  as chief
commissioner  of   lands  and   Avorks   was
dismissed, has  been   published.    The decision of justice Alartin   was  based upon
section   3"/   of   the   Alineral  Act.     Justice     Alartin     held     that     taken     as
a      Avhole,       section       37      may       be
regarded  as a proA'ision ofthe same nature as the statutes of limitation, pro-

Attrill of Peterboro, strongly advocating  the mint, was read, the board, without a  dissenting voice, acquiesced in that gentleman's suggestion. Mr. Attrill in his  letter gave the board a. great mass of information bearing on the subject. He  pointed out that there were iioav three  mints in Australia, and that the one at  Melbourne, Victoria, has saved that colony the sum of ��0000 annually since its  establishment. He suggested that application be made to the home gcwerninent  through the office of the Canadian high  commissioner for information as to the  amount that Avould be saved to Canada  by coining its oavh gold, copper and silver. A peculiar feature of the letter  was that the Avriter advocated an export  duty on gold in its raw, smelted or bullion state, if exported to a foreign conn-  try. The pro!it of a Canadian mint, lie  said, should be, roughly speaking, $250,-  000 per annum, and this he considered a  very conservative estimate.  "Of making many books  there is no end."

G.  mffltet'  THE value of the exports from Kootenay for the year endihg ,Tim<_ 30tli, 189B,  was $8,258,402, as agahjst a total of $8,-  6(.l,2,*?o for the renutiiider of the province.  So it will be seen that the gold and silver  auct lead and copper mined in Kootenay  is wdrfcll niore thai! all the coal Wined on  Vahcouvrer Island, And all the salmon  qann<)d on the Fiaser aud Bkedia and  Stlfeirie rivers, and all the timber and  hnilbej. cut at Vancouver and New Westminster. Yet Kootenay has no influence  at either Ottawa or Victoria when legislation affecting its industries is sought  for. Kootenay bears the white man's  burden. __^   According to the Miner, the waterworks at Nelson is wretched, the electric  light plant at Nelson  is  wretched, the  city officials Of Nelson are a lot  of careless Avretches, and Nelson is a wretched  2.lace generally.   Newcomers in all lands  and in all communities are always dissatisfied   with  existing   conditions,  aud the  newcomers in Nelson are  not an exception.    The Miner is controlled by new-  comers,    hence    the   wailings   of    that  paper.    As a matter of fact, the water-  works system at  Nelson is not perfect;  but where can a perfect system he found ?  The system at Nelson cost in  the  neighborhood of $45,000, $42,000 of which was  expended for  pipe and pipe laying, for  building a reservoir,   and  for hydrants.  The balance ($3000) was expended in*con-:  structing a wooden flume 7000 feet. long.  The pipe and hydrants and 'valve*,   are  the best made in America, and were purchased by tender, so it is safe to  assume that the. city has got full .value  for the money expended in their purchase.  The reservoir cost about $1000 and was  built by contract, the lowest tender being  awarded the work. The contractors built  it according to the specifications furnished  by the city, and it is worth the,money it  cost. The flume between the reservoir  and the creek from which = the������ water  supply. :is taken is as. good as wooden-  iluines.aro-generally*; L The water1 supply  niay heinadequate in unusual "seasons.���  as -tli is 'winter has proved to be; but' it  was /the- only supply 0obtaiuiib]e..'at the  time. The same may be--S.ud of the electric light system. Thecity has got full  A'alue for every dollar expended, in,its  purchase. With regard to the city  council, the Miner was very much dissatisfied with the old couucil and exulted,  over their defeat. But it uoav says that,  ,the new is worse than the old���Avhieh is  pjrpbaj.ly._a. statementof fact.

GRAND FORKS BOARD OF TRADE
Favors Kettle River Road.
The board of trade of Grand Forks, in
the Boundary Creek country, held a
meeting and passed tlie following resolutions in favor of the building of the
Kettle Hi ver Valley railway under a
Dominion charter, notwithstanding tlie
fact that the Canadian Pacific. AVaut that
country as a preserve:
Whereas, railway competition is essential for the development, of the mineral
and "-other, resources of the Boundary
country; and
.Whereas, tlie Canadian Pacific railway
extension, subsidized at the rate of $4000
a mile by tlie government of British
Columbia, is seeking to secure a monopoly
of raiUvay transportation in the Boundary district; and
Whereas, such a contingency would
involve the imposition of excessive rates
so injurious to a new country"; and
Whereas, it would retard public and
private enterprise; and .y
Whereas, it would crush private smelters to the advantage of smelters controlled by certain officials of the Canadian Pacific railway; and <V
dustrial !iori/.on is steadily brightening.
Only a few weeks ago one of our largest
manufacturing roiic'-rn.s voluntarily increased ,,, wages, aud since then many
others have quietly'followed tin; example.
Tlie volume of deposits in the banks,
both active and passive, was never larger;
failures are few and unimportant, and it
is generally recognized that we are ou
the threshold of better times. Evidently
then, the balance of trade theories are
founded upon premises which, although
correct  in   themselves, are   liable   to   be
D
nullified by outside conditions.
The reason that our exports show a
decrease in value is due to three facts.
In the first place the price of wheat is
lower than it was a year ago. In the
second place our farmers are prosperous
enough to hold their wheat in the hope
of better prices later on, and hence have
not shipped it as yet; although it still
remains as a potential factor in the
wealth of the country.'-And, in the third
ease, Ave are consuming more of our agricultural and fishery products within our
own borders, and hence require to send
less abroad. In other words,, we have
simply exchanged one market for another. We are selling our goods in the
home instead of in the foreign
market,' because it is more profitable to do so. And with the
increase in wealth thus accumulated Ave
can afford to buy more freely of the
.things Ave do not produce. Hence the
increase of our imports, which balance of
trade faddists predict means national
insolvency. It does nothing of the kind.
It is simply an object lesson of the futility of basing estimates.of national prosperity upon comparisons of" the export
and import trade, .without taking into
consideration the domestic market. Did
Ave sell only in the foreign market the
figures _.\;ould„ jbg.»of»Hv.<hie>.„ ..Bjit.^^clq-

THE BALANCE OF TRADE THEORY
^r-i*?
n porta
Receives a Rude Shock.
The theory of the balance of trade, as
propounded by i_oliticiaus and magazine
writers, has received a someAvliat rude
shock so far as Canada is concerned, by
the publication of the trade returns for
the eight months ended on February
2Sth last. They sliow~tl_..t the exports
of Canadian produce for the period cov-
ered decreased $7,128,335 in value from
those of the corresponding period of
1897, Avhile the imports for the eight
months of 1898-99 Avere $1(5,592,005 more
than those of the parallel months of
1897-98..
Theoretically, then, avo ought to be
shrouded in a period of commercial
gloom. For, under the balance of trade
theories, aii excess of'exports, over imports -is a necessary condition of prosperity. Yet we all know we are not. . On
the other hand, the  commercial  and  in-

Of course it is argued iu many cjiiar-
=ters^that=thisHs'the=A-ieAv^onIy=of^lroseSi
who syiiipathize with the eight-hour
movenient, but as a matter of fact
many large employers oi' labor who:
have at one tune or another been opposed
to the idea have, as the result of experiments, been converted to it. The organized carpenters of this city ai'e endeiiA^oi'-
iug to have .eight hours constitute a day's
Avork in their trade, and it. is said that
their employers are practically unanimous in desiring to see it. This would
seen! tOvsettle the question at Once, but
the fact is that there are many carpenters here Avhoilo npt belong to the local
organization, and as a consequence are
not working in sympathy with them. If
there is a possibility of making the experiment here on a large scale: It seems a
pity that it is not carried into.effect, seeing that a test would .soon settle the
ciuestlon one A\ay or the other. If better
results can be achieved by Working eight
hours a day instead of nine hours, Avhy
should not the shorter day prevail?

We have just received and opened up a large stock of hard and  soft hats, including Stetson's, Fedora's, Christie's, Roelof's and Carter's for spring and summer wear.  LOCAL   NEWS   AND   GOSSIP.  The license to .sell liquor at retail at  David IMoriee's hotel tit Fredericton, on  Toad mountain, has been reissued, not-  .vithstandiiii-,* that efforts were made by  interested parties to have it cancelled.  IMr. Morice, who has been in the hospital  at Nelson I'or two months, expects to be  able to get back up on the mountain in a  day or two.  Tlie societies that are arrangin.-*,* to  dedicate the new hall in the Odd Fellows  block have decided to postpone the event  until IMay 2nd, when the committees  having the matter in charge hope to pull  it oil' successfully. Tickets to the ball  and supper are to be $2 each, ladies  free.  Chief IMcKinnon gathered in a Chi milium yesterday afternoon upon a. charge  of discharging an air gun within the city  limits. He was target shooting in the  rear of the lion Ton restaurant and a  stray bullet found its way into the  kitchen and made cause for compla-int.  The air gun was confiscated and the  Chinaman pleaded guilty to the charge  against him. He left $25 on deposit with  the chief and will probably be fined that  amount today.  A special Easter service will be held on  Sunday morning at the Roman  Catholic church. Special music has been  prepared by the choir, and the church  will be tastefully decorated for the occasion.  AV. A. Galliher will leave tomorrow  morning for Ottawa as the accredited  delegate of tlie Nelson board of trade and  the city council, to urge upon the Dominion government the necessity of erecting a  government building in Nelson, to be  used as a post ofiice, customs office, inland revenue office, etc.  A meeting of those interested in the  organization of a local lacrosse team will  be held in the lire hall this evening.  Word has been received from Rossland  that a team has been organized in. that  city, and with another team in Sandon  some good lacrosse may be expected this  summer. There are several new players  in both Nelson and Rossland, so that considerable improvement may be expected  over the play of the past season. _  The local musicians .have organized an  orchestra to previde music for the firemen's smoking concert on Thursday  evening.

While  tho authorities have so far failed to provide uniforms, they have decided that  the uniform of the rifles will not be as  distinctive a.s Avas at first proposed.  Captain Hodgins has received instructions from the assistant adjutant-general  of artillery to the effect that the uniform  ofthe regiment will be the same as tlie  other rifle regiments of the Dominion,  save that a frock will be worn instead of  the close-fitting tunic.
