 TRAMWAY COMPANY'S CHARTER  UNDER   ALDERMANIC   FIRE.  An adjourned meeting oi' the city council was held yesterday afternoon for the  purpose of considering the provisions of  the tramway bylaw, all the members of  the council being present save alderman  Fletcher.  When tlie question of the bylaw was  broached, mayor Neelands at once expressed the opinion that the council was  not prepared to go on. There were a  great many matters to be considered  which had not been brought up, and he  thought that the members of the council  would require more information before  they could safely proceed with the consideration of the tramway company's  franchise.  A. M. Johnson, who appealed for the  tramway company, said that the delay  of the council iu dealing with the matter,  Avas annoying, as so long as the question  of the company's franchise remained in  the present shape it would be impossible  ���- to inform the board of the London company whether there Avas any likelihood  of any satisfactory arrangement being  arrived at. So far as the application of  , the company was concerned, the essential  parts, of the tramway company's request  were well understood. As to the minor  details he said he was' prepared to concede anything the council desired.  Mayor Neelands, in reply, said that tlie  difficulty with respect to the council was  that.the council did not know .what it  did want.  Alderman McKillop asked what provisions there were with respect to the  streets over which the proposed tramway should operate its cars.  Tlie company's solicitor in reply said  that the company, did not contemplate  that it should be dictated to as to what  streets it should construct lines of railway on, and would uot consent to any  : such dictation.  ,.,< Alderman Beer expressed the opinion  that the council should reserve the right  to'compel the company to build lines of  railway to meet the wishes of the people  of the city.  The solicitor replied that no  tramway  company's  charter contained  any  such  provision.    If any such provision was inserted in the charter  tlie  board  of the  parent company avou Id simply drop  the  ��� scheme and the members of  the council  ���would be obliged to assume the responsibility for having the matter dropped.

If the solicitorYwent aAvay  As the bylaw avus drawn, it Avas sfcipw-  lated that the company should forfeit its  charter in the case of failing to operate  the system for three months. This was  amended so that the operation of the  system must be maintained daily, and an  interruption of 2! hours iu the service to  forfeit the charter, save in the event of  accidents beyond the control of the company. The solicitor for the company  readily agreed to this. The hour for  commencing the serA'ieo was fixed at six  o'clock in the morning.  The company was permitted to maintain its maximum fare of ten cents, but  it was decided to make a reduction in the  fares to be charged for Avorkingmcn during certain hours.  The question of exemptions Avas passed,  over as agreeable to the council, and the  next obstacle was the proportion of the  cost to be borne by the company in  strengthening the city bridges and renewing the same for the safe conduct of  the company's cars. It was suggested  that the tramway company should bear  one-half the cost of such work, and a  clause embodying this Avill be drafted  and submitted to the council.  The remaining clauses in the byUuv  were then .passed and the committee rose  and reported progress.  DUNSMUIR'S   NEW   SCHEME.  Special to The Tribune.  Victoria, May 3.���A proposition more  attractive than the scheme to pay $-100,-  000 for  connection  with  Port Angeles,  avus  today made to  the  citizen's  committee.    The Dunsmuir interest offers a  fast rail and ferry'���'service .which  Avould  virtually make Victoria the  terminus of  the Canadian Pacific raihvay, as  passenger and freight cars Avould  be brought  here in three hours from Vancoirvei*. The  ferry Avould  start  from  the  vicinity, of  Chemainus, where already the nucleus of  a   town   is    apparent     in     connection  Avith    the     place     being     the     outlet  for       Dunsmuir's      Alexandria      mines  which are  being equipped  to  give  the  largest output on the island.   The details  of   the   Duusnniir   proposition   are not  made public, but there is a rumor to the*  effect that tlie subsidy to, be  asked - for  Avill be $500,000.    Victorians Avould prob-.  ably agree to,,paying  that much,  if a.s  suggested the C. P. II. parlor 'and sleeping  cars   would - actually   be'run  straight  through to this city from Montreal.  No  SIXTY RIOTERS UNDER ARREST  MINERS   BADLY   SCARED.  Associated I'ress.  Wardxkii, Idaho, May 8.���Sixty of the  rioters who were concerned in the disturbance of last Sunday at the Bunker Hill  <fc Sullivan mine have been arrested since  the arrival this afternoon of Company M  of the Twenty-fourth infantry. As soon  as the serving of the warrants began the  rioters scrambled over the hills in frantic  efforts to ' escape. About sixty Avero  caught and others will be pursued. Only  one tried to resist. lie was promptly  overpowered. The prisoners were  marched to tlie soldiers' camp. Nearly  all were Swedes or Italians.  Fifty-nine men of the Fourth cavalry  arrived here from Walla Walla today.  Coroner France has empanelled a jury,  and the inquest on the victims of the  mob began this afternoon. No more  rioting is feared until arrests begin on  Canyon creek, Avhere there are 1300  miners who are said to be fully armed.  LOCAL AND MINING NEWS FROM  ADJACENT   TOWNS   AND   CAMPS.  chief en-  railway.  hje should .leave a man Avho could  attend  to his duties.  Mayoi* Neelands in reply said tliat tlie  eity solicitor's partner Avas attend ing to  the city's legal business, biit the council  could not proceed without more' information.  Alderman iCirkpatrick sttid that the  whole difficultly was that traniAyay franchises Wol-e neAv totho acting city soliei-  tpr.    lie had JieVur drawn one before.  Aklprnuui Jlillyer retorted that the:  city was paying i'or the .services of a  city solicitor, ahd if tlie present arrltilge-  meiit did not ehsure the legal service  Avhieh tlie council required, the city had  better secure the services of a solicitor  who could attend to the business.  The members of the council then decided to consider the byhvw of the company iii committee and alderman Beer  avJis voted to the chair.  The first stumbling block was over the  extent of supervision whicli the' council  should exercise AA'ith respect to the  streets to be traversed by the tramway  line. The matter Avas finally adjusted  by the acceptance of the suggestion of  alderman Hillyer, AA'hich, Avhile it does  not give: the council poAver to say. upou  what" streets the company shall be  obliged to build traimvay lines, gives the  council power to prevent the company  from building upon streets or portions of  streets where the tramway is not desired.  The next difficulty encountered A\ras  Avith respect to the amount of* the roatl-  Avay which the traimvay company should  keep in repair. Au attempt Avas made  to bind the company to keep its roadway  and two feet on the outside of all tracks  in repair, but this was eventually  changed, so that the company shall keep  in repair but eighteen inches of the road-  A\*ay outside its tracks and also the devil  strip in all cases of double tracking.

Masterton was  shot hVe times and died' within an hour  or tAvo. The murder Avas premediatated.  Plumb declared that Masterton had not  only ruined him financially, but had  attempted to alienate the affections of  his-wife and children and to cause his  social doAvnfall.  Independence Mooted for the Transvaal.  Associated Press.  London, May 3.���A movement is under  way to secure England's guarantee for  the independence of the TraiiSAraal, if  president Kruger will make concessions  to the Utlauders. This solution of the  Transvaal problem is put forth as a check  to the threatened crisis in Anglo-Boer  relations, by tliose who believe that  armed coercion on England's part to  secure the rights of English residents in  tho Transvaal/would react to. her detriment politically.       .  Dreyfus' -Chances  Improving.  Associated Press  Paris, May 3.���Slowly but steadily the  net is closing around the members of the  general staff in the Dreyfus revision inquiry. General-jMereior, Avho.Avas. minister of war at the time Dreyfus Avas condemned, on being called upon by M. De  Freycenet, the present minister of Avar,  to produce the report regarding the  secret dossier, Avhieh ���lieutenant-colonel  Du Paty de Clam testified he had sent to  Mercier, replied he had destroyed, it, and  he called general Gonse as a A\*ituess to  the truth of this statement. .Unfortunately for Mercier general Gonse had already testified before the court of cassation that although Mercier destroyed the  original, he.kept a copy.  Another anti-Dreyfus argument has received its death blow. General Zurliu-  clen, military gOA*ernor of Paris, and  others, Avhile testifying before the court  of cassation, attached great importance  to the closing sentence of the .bordereau :  "I am starting for the manceuvros," as  proving the guilt of Dreyfus and tho.  innocence of Estcrha/.y. It Avas con-'  tended tliat tho staff probationers were  .only .notified on August 20, that they.  "would" not be required to attend the  nianceuvros, but it lias since been proA'on  that this notification Avas actually dated  31 ay 17th. This being so, Dreyfus could  not haA'e Avritten : "1 am starting'1 for the  manoeuvres '" in the I'olIoAving August.  It is rumored that-it was lieutenant-  colonel Du Paty de Clam himself avIio  communicated to the Figaro the depositions made before the court of cassation.

As.*cilited j'l'Css  London, May 3.���A dispatch from  Lagos, West Ajriea, says that the Europeans there are vary indignant at bhe  state) net it made by the Rev. Herbert  TligWell, Anglican bishop of Equatorial  Africa, in a letter to the London Thi'ios  on .Mal'Ch 2.7th to the ��licet that seventy-  live per cent of the deaths of Europeans  on the coast of Africa was' due to drunk-  eness. A Writ for slander has been issued  against Ttigwell, which Avill be served  upon him when he arrives at Lagos, on  his way to England.  Alderman Beer has succeeded in inducing the city council to double the amount  of the public buildings bylaw.' He thinks  that $5000 would not go far enough. He  has in mind the construction of a brick  or stone building 45 x 72 feet, at an estimated cost of $10,000, At the meeting  of thecity council yesterday afternoon  he urged that the council circulate a ucav  petition among the assessed owners so  that the council could submit a bylaw for  $10,000 instead of $5000, as proposed.  The propo>ul to increase  the cityV de-"  benture indebtedne.-s by $70,000   instead  of $05,000  was warmly  approved  of by  alderman Thomson.  -Mayor Neelands also said that he considered the council -avouId be making a  great mistake in spending but $5000. If  the council could not spend $10,000, the  question of public buildings might as  Avell go over for another year.  Alderman Jlillyer Avas the only member of the council who opppserl the proposition. He thought the council Avas  making a mistake in deciding to spend so  much money in one year.  -Alderman Thomson seconded the motion for the submission of another petition, and it was carried.  The council decided to purchase 1200  copies of the 3Iinei-'s Avrite-up at a cost of  $120. Alderman Hillyer was the only  member of the council avIio was not  sweet upon the proposal.

A petition has recently been filed with  the minister of railways narrating a set  of facts that call for particular attention.  Moyie City is a community situated on  the line of the Crow's Nest raihvay.    It  was  a town  site" and Settlement  before  the railway was begun.   It oavcs its existence  to the  fact that three shipping  mines are Avithin a mile of it.   A steamboat also plies on the lake, bringing tlie  town into  contact Avith aii points along  the shore.    At the time the petition Avas  drafted   there  Avere   in   the   place  five  hotels,  three   stores,  a   church,   school,  neAVspaper,  saw mill,  breAvery, customs  office,  real   estate  office,   besides   other  businesses such as  baker, butcher, blacksmith,  laundry, feed  stable, cigar store,  billiard saloon, barber shop, and, in addition,   about a. dozen   private   residences.

This is a'particularly gross example of  a species of coercion that has been too  much practised in the past. If the facts  are correctly stated in the petition, there  is no good reason why a station and siding, and every other reasonable facility,  should not be afforded JMoyie, and we  feel sure that Mr. Blair will use every  power that the law puts in his hands to  compel the railway company to do its  duty ami frustrate this high-handed attempt on the part of a powerful corporation to ''hold up" a. community.

Tlie Edmonton Bulletin gives the following additional details of the double
tragedy tit:that place last Aveek, in which
AV. P. Rowland and Lottie Brunette, his
-affianced Avife, committed suicide by taking strychnine:
"No inquest   aviis  held,  as numerous
letters written by the two explained the
reason and proved that the deed was pre-
niediated.    She    Avas a   Catholic,   he   a
Protestant,  and  strong  objections   had
apparently been made to tlieir marriage.
In ■ their last letters they refer to ' these
objections and stiite that if they cannot
live together they  Avill die together.    In
the  afternoon  Rowland had  taken* the*
blanket  and  canvass-, ■'sheet out  to  the
bluff and after that they Avere  seen,.on
the street together seemingly happy and
in  the best of spirits. . He  Avas   about
tAventy-two and she twenty-one years of
age.    Both  Avere  Avell kiioAvn" here.    He
had  been on  several trips  through the

combated in every possible Avay, and with,
considerable success, by'the'improvement
of the Avater  supply and  sanitation  of
such  large toAvns as Accra,,  Lagos, and
Freetown.    It is probable that the climate of AVest Africa Avill shortly be considered no  Avorse.than that of our other
tropical     possessions.      The     health   of
Europeans at Sierra Leone and on the Gold
Coast,  lam 'informed, has   been phenomenally good, for the  last six 'months.    I
tni/velled from -Sekondi   to  Kuinasi, A'ia
TarkAva,oby • a hitherto unexplored route,
and discovered  a fairly easy route for a
raihvay skirting the formidable Adansi
Hills.    Gold is abundant along this route,
and some extraordinary assays havo been
made  at several  places, eAren   in this almost unknoAvn territory, Avhere the Avhite
man  is still  a great  curiosity.    Perfect
order and contentment preA*ail under the
equitable rule of the colonial government.
I imiioi'ted fi'oiii Sierra Leone to Sekondi
the Avholeof my carriers for the journey,
and the ease Avitli  Avhieh such  an operation can  beelfected  sei'ves to  illustrate
the? harmonious  co-operation Avhieh exists among the AVest African colonies under the present ci-oavii colony system.
An: Officer's Heroic-Death.
A shocking fate has befallen lieutenant
Maurice Bell, a young officer seizing in
the Belgian ranks in the Congo. He was

soldiers fled when the rebels attacked,
leaA'ingthe lieutenant and a. brave native
corporal to face them. Protected by the
thick bush, they kept up a. deadly (ire on
their assailants. Mr. Roll shot eleA*en of
them, but was finally disabled by a spear
wound in the shoulder. As he fell, he
Avas caught inthe arms ofthe corporal,
Avho dragged him from the bush into the
(>pen and tried to escape. Both, how-
CA'er, were overpowered by numbers and
killed. As soon as the news of tlie disaster reached the Free State authorities a
large force was sent out to punish the
natiAres. It Avas found that the bodies of
the two brave men had been eaten by
the natiA'es, pieces having been sent
round as trophies to villages as far distant as twenty miles from the 'place
whore they fell.
Half a Wife Better Than None.
Judgment Avas delivered at  Cincinnati
on Saturday iu the remarkable action for
divorce brought by Charles lv.ra.11s against
his wife Katharine,    lie alleged that she
had a glass eye and a false leg, and that,
as  these  imperfections   did not become
knoAvn to  him until  after the marriage,
deception was practised upon him, which
entitled him to a divorce.    He contended
also  that as he  had not  married a complete woman,  as.he had   hoped to do, he
should be released from his obligations.
Judge DaAds, before  whom the case was
heard, decided  in favor  of the wife and
dismissed  the  petition.    In giving judgment he said his Avife  had   neArer  been
asked before  marriage whether  she had
any physical  defects,  and consequently
there could be no positive deceit.    Dealing Avith the legal aspect of the case he
said:    "It is not imlaAvful for Avoman to
attract mankind Avith devices and attachments used to improA'e the work of nature.    OtherAvise Avhy should  not false
hair "iind   other    falsities- peculiar   to
females be made a ground of divorce."
hundred soldiers who were discharged
from the United Stales army three weeks
ago, are a-Avaiting transportation home.
They are without funds, and are becoming much exasperated oA'er tlie delay.
These men are a source of great care to
the military and police, who fear that
unless they are soon provided Avith transportation to the United States, their demoralisation will affect the city. Major-
general Henry has authorized them to
sleep and eat in the military barracks.
Many of the men are Avithout a cent.
