 ALBERNI RAILWAY COMMENCED
VICTORIA   GREATLY   INTERESTED.
Victoria, May 0.—Railway work of
immense imiiortance to Vancouver Island
was commenced this morning, when the
construction of tlie road to run from Al-
berni canal clear across the island to
(Jowichan Bay, was begun near Nanaimo.
The Times this evening has a sensational article concerning this enterprise,
warning \1ctorin that the scheme may
be to send the terminus of the Canadian
Pacilic to Alberni, and that the Dunsmuir ferry, which they are asked to
bonus, may be used as part of this alarming scheme.
Tlie Alberni-Cowichen road, however
is promoted with much simpler intention,
being designed to draw lumber from the
extensive limits wliich the Boboaygon
Lumber Company and its associates secured several years ago, in the part of
Vancouver Island to be traversed. If the
Canadian Pacific or other steamers do
ever find it worth while to call at Alberni
canal, this railroad would of course give
quickest connection with Vancouver, and
therefore may in time be part of transcontinental route.

Negroes Should Be Deported.
Special to The Tribune.
Chicago, May 0.—Rev. John H. Boyd,
pastor of tlie First .Presbyterian church,
Evanston, and moderator of the Chicago
presbytery, discussed the recent lynch-
ings in the south and proposed a solution
of the "negro problem." 0 His idea is to
send all-members-'of the negro race in
this country to the West Indies and to
let them "work out their destiny" there.
He said on this point:
"If we have millions to spend for Cuba
and millions for the Philippines, let us
spend a few other millions for the development of the negro, preparing him to
work out his destiny in some scimrated
place si way from white men. I look upon
the West Indies as the place where the
negro'may become dominant in society
and politics, and there, according to his
own instincts and eulightnieut, .may organize a society and conduct a government under the oversight and tutelage of
our great republic."

Special to The Tribune;
Omaha, May (5.—The Omaha smelter,
late a part of the Omaha & Grant Smelting Company's property, how transferred
to the combine known as the American
Smelting and Refining Company, today
passed into the hands of its iioav owners.
Superintendent Page becomes manager

Dutchmen are Angry Now.
Special to The Tribune.
Brussels, May 6.—The ire of the.
Dutch is rising oyer the slight upon
Dutchmen in South Africa invoked in
the omission of president Kruger of the
Transvaal from the list of those invited
to participate iii the peace conference.
La Patriote's correspondent at The
Hague sends a dismal dispatch today regarding the outlook for the conference, regretting that even before the assembling of the delegates serious discord
should have been created; Not only are;
the Catholics dissatisfied, he says, that
the pope should not have been invited,
but even the Dutch, the host on the occasion of the conference, must be affront
ed in their sympathies by their own minister of foreign affairs. A numerously
signed petition has been presented to
Queen Wilhemina asking the removal of
this minister, M. de Beaufort, as unfit.
Inconvenient for Eloping Couples.
Special to The Tribune.
MiliWAUKKK, May (>.—The new marriage law will not go into ■ effect until May
10th, and the justices and ministers arc
expecting a rush during the next few
days. After the law takes effect there
cannot be a man-ago in this state for a
period of five days, as the laAV requires the
filing of a !i\re day's notice. It AA'as pointed
out by an enterprising justice of the peace
today that Chicago couples could be
spliced in this city by simply sending a
certified application up here five days in
advance. There is a general belief, Iioav-
eA-er, that the new law will break up the
excursion-marriage trade.   *
Cretans Have No Voice.
Special to The Tribune. ,
Athens, May (5.—The Cretan charter,
adopted Thursday by the admirals of
Great Britain, France, Italy and Russia,
charged Avith the administration of the
island, leaves the inhabitants no voice in
the election of officers of government. In
a note to the admirals Prince George of
Greece, the high commissioner, deprecates
this provision as calculated to engender
discontent in the island. The adminis--
trative council, Avhieh is to consist of four
Christians and one Moslem, is headed by
M. Sphakianakes.
GERMANY    GREATLY     DISSATISFIED.
Associated Press.
Berlin, May 0.—The belief has taken
complete possession of the public mind in
Germany that German interests in Samoa
have been brutally and ruthlessly disregarded by the English and the United
States officials. It seems that this ArieAv
is steadily gaining strength'with nearly
all classes. The press certainly reflects
the sentiment Avith increasing violence.-
The government, has done nothing during
■the past Aveek, either to fortify or to dispel  this  trend  of public  opinion..   The
FATHER   PAT'S    FOOTBALLERS
GET   SAT   ON.
The members of the Nelson Rugby
football team clinched their title to supremacy over Path or Pat's kickers yesterday afternoon, when they administered a second defeat to the Rossland
men. It was too much of a summer day
for football, but the players stood it well
and were 'frequently applauded. Although it was a return there, wore several
new men on the field who did not meet
in the former game at Rossland. In the
change it was apparent tliat Nelson
gained considerable over the visitors.
Rossland's chief loss Avas Ta.it, it star

During the first half of the game neither side scored, but the Nelson meu
pressed the visitors close and had the
best of the play, the Rossland team being weakened by the loss of Sword, who'
receiA'ed a fractured collar bone.
When play Avas resumed for the second half and before the game was finished Father Pat Avas disabled by a blow
in the eye. He Avas game to play the

with a bandage around his head, but the
other members thought he was sufficiently battered up .and prevailed upon
him to become a 'spectator. In tlie English game of football the disabling of a

Kaslo May 0.—-Kaslo's celebration   on
the 21 th of May will be as good as it ever
was in former years.    Tho committee  in
charge aro sparing neither pains nor  expense to make ita grand  success, and   in
spite of counter attractions  there will be
a. big crowd   in   Kaslo   for the day.    The
steainer Moyie has been chartered for an
excursion from Nelson and \vaypoints,and
the rate will be single fare for round trip.
The st.ea.mer Nelson will   run   from Bonner's  Ferry,  and   the  Spokane   Falls  &
Northern railway will offer single' fare
rate for round trip   good for   three days.
The trip on the lake is sure   to prove  an
attraction, and Kaslo Avill reap the benefit.     The  principal   eA-ents  on   the   programme will be the bicycle  races, a sailing race and canoe race,   baseball  match
between Bonner's Ferry and Kaslo, hose
reel race, Avet test, Sandon vs. Kaslo, pro-
b.ibly a foot  ball match  between  Trail
and Kaslo, all .kinds of Caledonian games,
besides numerous other attractions.    Tho
Kaslo rides also expect to be out in  then-
new uniforms  for the  occasion, and the
Kaslo  brass  band   will discourse  sweet
music during the day.    The proceedings
will Avinrl up Avith a grand ball.
The Nelson Miner gave a very exaggerated account of the raihvay operations in
the Lardo by saying the Hercules left
Kootenay Landing with 175 men and
supplies to commence work on the Great
Northern line to be built by the Kaslo &
Slocan company. The facts were stated
in The Tkihune that the Hercules left
Kaslo Avith tAventy-fivo men under contractor Carlson ; and at present that is
all the men that the Kaslo <fc Slocan people have in the'district,'.outside, of their
engineers. .3. ft. -.Gray and Mr. Carlson
returned last night, and it is reported that
there lias been some trouble tip there between the two companies, one gang tearing up.the other gang's stakes, and soon.
Your 'correspondent so far av.-is unable to
see either Mr. Gray or Mr. Carlson, and
t§0^anuo:€^'if*\^
lease. A meeting of the enthusiasts of
lawn tennis Avas hold on Thursday night
and tho club reorganized for the season.
The court has boon placed in excellent
condition. The potato famine has been
raised by the arrival of a carload of tubers this week. They sell at three cents.
The football club is practising daily in
anticipation of their match with Nelson
on the 21th. The citizens have cleared
off and graded a portion of the government square, making the contrast with
the other part most marked. Business is
incroariiig daily at the record office.
The C.P.R. Hampering Traffic.
F.  Schweitzer,  who  superintends  the
delivery of  ore and coke at the 'North-
port smeller, spent yesterday in   Nelson.
He was hero for  the purpose  of superintending   the. transfer   of,  1000 tons   of
Crow's   Nost  Pass coke  from  barges at
Five-mile point  to Great  Northern   cars
for use nt the  smelter.    Mr.   Schweitzer
reports   that  the  Northport  smelter   is
now running at its  full capacity, and   is
treating four hundred tons  per day, the
bulk  of Avhieh  is received  from  the Le
Roi mine, although  small shipments  are
received from Ymir and other camps along
the Nelson <fc Fort Sheppard and the Red
Mountain railways.    He claims that  the
smelter company loses $1 per ton on  the
value of the coke in the transfer through
the lumps being broken into  dust, Avhicli
cannot be used in their  furnaces, besides '
the cost  of transfer, Avhieh  amounts  to
25 cents per ton.    The cost of connecting
the tAvo railways at°Nelson- so"that  cars
could be transferred from,one line to the'
other, Avould be only about $200, and he
says the smelter company Avould Avilliug-
ly bear the, cost if allowed by the 'Canadian-Pacific to do'so.

•San FiiANcjiSuo, May i>.—A letter from
the Tonga Friendly islands, dated Api-il
lltli, says that a treaty has been entered
into between. Great Britain and the
islands. Germany has made tl demand
far £25,000 for debts Contracted by Ton-
gaus to German traders. Groat Britain
offered to pay the claim and protect these
little islands that Germany is so eager to
acquire. It is not the intention of the
British at this time to annex the islands,
Which comprise the Vavau, Haspian and
Tonga groups. The British and King
George II. lnirve merely formed a treaty
of alliance, offence and defensive. The
German claims Avill be paid as presented,
and the islands virtually become a dependency of Great Britain.

to the values saved upon the plates the

show that when in operation the Ymir

April was not  up  to expectations.    The
trouble wliich the company had with its
miners over the eight-hour law is responsible for the shortage in the output.    Instead of an output of elose upon $20,000,
which was the limit  set by- the management, it foil  off to $9,500, including the
-gold saved on   the  plates and the values
retained   in   the   concentrates.    With  a
steady run this   month   the  limit set for
April should be reached, which, added to
the  expected output of  the Ymir mill,
gives the two  gold   mines of the Nelsou
district a  prospective  output  of $50,000
per month.
In computing the possible output for
the summer account must be taken.of
the Duncan mines. The development
'which has been going on in this company's
properties for the past year has opened
up ore bodies sufficient to keep a 20
stamp mill running for some time, and
when the projected mill is in operation it
may be counted upon turning out another $20,0000 in a short time,
Then there remains also the Poorman
and Fern properties to be considered,
.which, when . operated, Avould have a
very considerable output, so that there is
every prospect before the Avinter that
the free golrl properties in the vicinity of
Nelson will Ikia-o a monthly output of
$100,000. Those figures carried on over
a year's operations Avould giA-c an output
from the five properties of OA'er $1,000,-
000, something Avhieh is nearer realization than most people of Nelson imagine.

New Tenders Will be Called Tor.
The Bank of Montreal has decided
call for now tenders for the erection
tho buildiug on the corner of Baker and
Kootenay streets. Of the tenders received in the first instance, one from a
Victoria contractor was about $0000
lower than the loAves't of the local ton-
dors, but the tenderer refused the contract at his own figures when it Avas
offered to him. With this contractor out
of the race, the contract will doubtless
be secured by local men. Tho tenders

CURRKNT RATB.OF INTERKST PAID  A   TOUGH   MINING   CAMP.  The following stoiy is going the rounds  of the press. The reader is led to believe that Lac-la-Hache is a modern mining town, and the incidents recited occurred last April. The incidents probably occurred in April, 1801 or'02, during  the Hush days of Cariboo. There is no  such town in British Columbia today,  and the toughest town in the province  is probably the one in which J. C.  McLagan's paper is published:  A special from Seattle to the San  Francisco Chronicle says: Up in the  mountains of British Columbia a new  "tough town" has sprung up which is in  a fair way to bear a worse reputation,  than Dodge City, Kas., or Tombstone, A.  T., ever did. The town in question is  Lac-la-Hache, ;md it has for inhabitants  less that 1000 miners. The strange part  about it is that Lac-la-Hache won its re-.,  putation for downright roughness in one  night, just as the miners gained the  wealth they are now recklessly spending  in one big lucky strike.  There is a premium on everything of a  sporting nature, and nothing is too bad  for the miners. The town has the only  dozen fighting turkey gobblers in the  country, and nearly every miner has a  pri/.e bulldog or game cock. Gambling  runs wide open all the time and saloons  never close. =  Sunday, April 10th, was a day of fame  for Lac-la-Hache. One. of the most terrible; and bloody, prize-fights in.the history of the ring Avas fought oii the green  turf thai* afternoon for a purse of $2000.  It lasted lifty rounds, and at the end of  four .hours'   fighting   the   ground , was  running with-human blood.

The crashing of  glasses, the shrill cries of excited women  and the sound of shooting only added to  the excitement. The fighting gobblers  were called in, and in a terrible contest  gored each other to death. Two bulldogs,  the pride of the camp, were pitted, and  the crowd looked on. Fights over women  were numerous. No one went home  sober. The champagne held out, and before morning the floor of Somerset hall  was covered with drunken sleepers entirely overcome by wine and excitement.  Lac-la-Hache will never forget that  Sunday. They are already planning for  more good times and purpose raising a"  magnificent purse for two eastern fighters of Avorld-drawing reputation. If the  gold in Lac-la-Hache placer beds holds  out the camp will soon be known as the  toughest place in all the world.  Plea of the Nickel Monopolists.  Hamilton Herald.  Naturally, the Canadian Copper Company, and the Orford Copper Company  don't want an,, export duty imposed on  nickel ore and matte. The Canadian  Copper Company, -wliich has got control  of the producing nickel mines in Sudbury,  is an American concern, and the Orford  Copper Company is the same concern under another name.- Under the name of  the Canadian Copper Company certain  Standard Oil magnates hold a monopoly  of Canadian nickel, mine it in quantities  to suit their own purposes, ship it to  New Jersey, where the Orford company  refines it. Under this arrangement the  minimum of benefit from the industry is  received by Canadian workmen, and the  maximum of benefit goes to American  workmen.  An export duty would change all that.  It Avould eomiK.il the refining ofthe nickel  in Canada. The tremendous advantage  yt,o Canada to be derived from from an export duty on raw nickel is now so well  understood, that the Canadian people are  practically a unit in its favor. So strong  is the feeling on the subject that tlie  Yankee monopolists have taken alarm,  and have deputed Ii. ti-. Leckio, the manager ofthe Orford Copper Company to  make out the best possible case for the  monopoly and get ib published. He has  done so, and got it published in the Toronto Globe.  ��� Probably he has made out the best case  possible for the great monopoly, but it is  a A'ery  Aveak case  all the same.    He has  the impudence to declare-that an export  duty   would   injure   Canada   because   it  would restrict tins production of nickel���  that  the   United  States   avou Id   in that  event get its supply from New Caledonia.  He presumes too much on the ignorance  of-��� the'Canadian    people.      He   assumes  that Canadians don't know, or have forgotten, that the monopolists with  whom  lie is associated gave testimony at Washington   that the   nickel refining industry  ���iu the United  States was wholly dependent  upon   the Sudbury  mines for   raw  material.    This  testimony  they gave to  prevent the imposition of an import duty  on raw nickel.. Either they made a false  statement  then, or  Mr. Leckie  makes a  false statement in his letter to the Globe.  The  known   facts are   in favor  of  bhe  Washington statement.  But the best answer  to Mr.oLeckie is  this  cold  fact:    The Nickel Steel  Com  pany of Canada has offered to enter into  an agreement 'with the Canadian Copper  Company to take the total product of its  mines for three years at present market  prices in case an export duty on nickel  ore and matte is imposed. The Nickel  Steel Company has .$20,000,000 behind it.  There is no doubt of its ability bo carry  out its proposed agreement. In the  teeth of that oiler, what can be thought  of bhe pica of Mr. Leckie that an export  duty would restrict the production of  nickel at Sudbury? It is simply an impudent bluff.

Tom Kee. a Chinaman,laid a complaint  before magistrate Crease last evening  against another Chinaman named Lum.  Tin; complainant charged Lum with having assaulted him with an axe. He lioj-e  marks of the assault, but as he could ,lot,  speak Knglish the ease was enlarged ,m_  til Monday.  James Weymack, the waif who has  been a. charge upon the charitably disposed people of Nelson for the past six  months, left on Saturday for the reformatory at Victoria. J.'olice magistrate  Crease decided that as the boy was incorrigible the reformatory for the next two  years would, be the best place for him.  He was accordingly given in charge of  chief Thompson, who is on a, holiday trip  to AHctoria.  A meeting of the Nelson Miner's Union  was held last evening in the Oddfellow's  hall, when the question of the eight-  hour law and the scale of wages to be  demanded under it was discussed.  A business man who is pretty well  posted on the ins and outs of things said  yesterday that the city council were going blind on everything; that they asked  for $30,000 for water works extensions,  and $5,000 for additions to public buildings without having any data at hand ou  which to make estimates. He said he  knew for a certainty that the electric  light plant was, at present time, generating twice as much current as was paid  for.  There was a well-authenticated report  in circulation last night that Beer 'Brothers had sold the Victoria block to the  street railway syndicate. The Victoria,  block is considered tlie best situated and  best paying property in Nelson.  The people of Nelson who intend to  celebrate the queen's birthday in neighboring towns will have the choice of tAvo  excursions. The Oddfellows will run an  excursion, to New.Den ver and the.

If Scions is preparing his annual advertisement of Nelson- the best kept  garden and orchard in any town in  Kootenay.  The smoker given by tin; members of  the Nelson Rugby football club in the  hall of the Hotel liunie last evening  proved a very enjoyable affair. It was a  smoker in which every one present took  part, and was therefore enjoyable.  Orange V. Holt was master of ceremonies.
