New York, May 9.���Bryan is to be  nominated in spite .of'.-the protests from  the east. He has made a personal canvass  of all the southern and Avestern states  and his friends hold the party machinery  iu his interest. They are not going to  throw the east overboard openly,, but  eastern adA'ice is not going to be accepted  and eastern influences are not to be permitted any great SAvay in the national  councils of the party. If any formidable movement to defeat Bryan and the  Chicago platform becomes apparent,  there Avill be contesting silver delegations from each eastern state, and the  original party programme will be carried  out in spite of any opposition.

Special to Tho TrHiiim*.  Victoria, May 9.���Admiral Pallizer,  now on his Avay home to England, lias  queered the queen's birthday celebration  by cabling orders that the naval forces  shall take no part in any sham fight or  other pageant. His excuse is the small  number of men present, but this is palpably a subterfuge and the citizens are  furious. At a meeting held tonight a  formal protest to admiralty Avas proposed, but it was decided that  this Avould be a Avaste of  money that could better be'spent in fire-  works. Early in his stay Pallizer demanded admiral's residence from Victoria  and did not get it. Pallizer AA'as-further  soured by the dispute Avitli lieutenant-  gOA'ernor Mclnnes who declined to AvaiAre  his-right to precedence OA'er the admiral  as other governors had done. This parting slap at Victoria is the smallest of  many mean acts.  A Yarn About Chicago's Shrewdness.  Associated Press.  Chicago, May 9.���Some shreAvd Chicago  men have hit upon a plan by which they  hope to defraud the United States goA'ernment out of thousands of dollars  Avithout being brought to justice. The  scheme is to gather up all the second-class  advertising mail matter of the large commercial houses, ship it to Mexico by  freight, change their American money  into Mexico money at a' ratio of tAvo to  one, buy Mexican stamps, and then mail  the matter back to the United States,  thus suving half a cent on every letter.

Spec'al to The Tribune.  London, May 9.���All priA'ato advices  from the Transvaal show that the Boer  government.seriously suspects the British  government of some contemplated treachery and that preparations are steadily  being made to protect the independence  of the republic. Mr. Chamberlain, colonial secretary,.told the house of commons  the other day that it was quite true that  the garrisons in South Africa have been  strengthened Avithout requests from the  colonial governments. He might .haA'e.  gone further and stated that reinforcements have been sent from time to time  during the last six months, composed of  men carefully picked for their marksmanship, and that the ordinary drill in tlie  South African garrisons has given place  to an almost incessant practice in rifle  shooting.    ���-.-.-  The alarmists say that these preparations are due to the belief that president  Kruger has not long to live, ami that his  death will be followed by events AA'hich  AA'ill give this country as TraansA'aal's  suzerain ample justification for armed  intervention. The British government's  plans have nothing to do -Avith the designs of Cecil Rhodes. His prestige is a  trifle damaged just now, OAving to his  electoral losses in Cape Colony. His  agents in the TransA'aal haA'e also been  lniving a bad time, so much so that  Rhodes has felt compelled to establish a  neAV daily paper in Johannesburg.  To Bar Out Scallywags.

Buffalo, May 9.���The strike situation  along the docks remains 'practically unchanged. Contractor Connors stated today that he Ava-s working thirteen elevators with a full force of men, and was  elevating at lensb 1,000,000 bushels of  grain a day. Notwithstanding this statement the fact remains that there are  fifty-six large steamers in the harbor  Avaiting to be unloaded, and thirty-five  more are due within the next forty-eight  hours.  That the carrier's association A'ieAVS the  matter in a most serious light is  evident  from tlie concessions it is "making to .the  strikers.      Today    a    presentation  was  made  by  the .association   in    which  it  agreed to  practically  .shelve  contractor  Connors,   appointing   another    man   to  superintend the, Avork, and allow Connors  nothing to say as  regards  the Avorking-'  men, his only connection   Avith  the  unloading of grain  being the  payment  to  him    of    the     commission    guaranteed  under his contract.    To this proposal the  strikers refused to listen, nothing but the  doing away entirely Avith the contractors  Avill satisfy  them.     The  officers  of the  Jake carriers association  say  that it  is  impossible for them to deal directly with-  the grain shovellers owing to the  enormous interests at stake in fche unloading  of boats and tlie handling of two hundred  millions bushel each season.  The secretary of state for the colonies,  Joseph Chamberlain, said that he had  not received the replies of the colonial  governments, and if representations were  made ou their behalf with refrencc to  Great Britain's oll'er, they would be carefully considered.  and .

British Ship Wants Damages.  Associated Press.  AArASiii.VGTON, May 9,���The owners of  the British bark, Howard D. Troop,  through their representative, Robert B.  Beuidi'ck of New York, made an application today to tlie British ambiissy in  connection with the case of the captain  and a number of sailors of this ship who  are alleged to have been improperly  treated at Astoria, Oregon.

The Hall Mines smelter is treating betAveen sixty-five and seventy tons of ore  daily in the small furnace. About forty  por cent of this ore is obtained from one  of the Silver King workings, and is  smelted-in connection Avith purchased  lead ores from the Slocan. It is the intention of the smelter superintendent to  increase the proportion of ihoSilver King  ore next week to fnily fifty per cent, as  the idea of the company in treating the  Slocan ores is mainly to use their lead  contents for collecting the sih-er A'alucs  in the Ioav grade Silver King ore, Avhieh  carries but a small percentage of copper.  The present difficulty betAveen the  members of the Nelson board of school  trustees and the education department  at Victoria Avill very likely be settled today, or a commencement at least Avill be  made in the way of a settlement. At  the last meeting of the trustees it was  decided to close the two junior classes,  owing to tho fact that the education department had failed to furnish two additional teachers avIio were required, and  likewise failed to fui nihh the two extra  rooms in the neAV building. Since the  trustees and the education department  locked horns upon the issue on April 29th  there has been no school for the  youngsters.  This is one of the matters wliich  Hon.  J. Fred Hume Avill endeavor to straighten  out \vhile in Nelson.    A conference Avith  the school trustees will  probably be  arranged for today, Avhen the offer  avi'11 be  made to the school trustees that the necessary steps be taken  by  the  people of  Nelson     Avith     a     view       to     having  Nelson     created      a     school     district.  This     Mr.     Hume     says      the     government   Avould     be    only    too     well-  pleased  to  do, placing Nelson   upon the  =same basis Avith respect to  its school as  the large cities on the coast.  This would transfer the control of the  school from the education department at  Victoria to a board of school trustees to  be elected by the electors of the city, and  the cost for maintaining the school Avould  be borne by the municipality and a per  caijita alloAvance from the province instead of being wholly borne by the provincial government. If this suggestion  is acted upon, it is safe to say that Nelson's ''school'facilities will be A-ery much  improved, as there would be more money  available for their maintenance than the  proA'incial authorities appear able to  command. In this event, the provincial  revenue: tax of three dollars per head  Avhieh the province is supposed to collect  for school jmrposes would be collected by  the city council. Properly collected, this  head tax should realize at least $3000.  The jDer capita grant upon school attendance should realize another $4000, so  that at the outset Nelson avou Id bein  a much better position AA'ith respect to  school finances than it is at present, and  with efficient schools Nelson Avould become an even more desirable place'.of  residence than it is at present.

Mining Operations Around Erie.  Marc Gilliam  of  Erie  Avas  in  Nelson  yesterday.    He says  that a little time  will bear out all his predictions for  Erie  as  a   mining 'camp.    At  Erie yesterday  the sbeam hoisting plant of the Candian  King   Mining  Company Yvas  being  unloaded from the Nelson <fc Fort Sheppard  cars.    This property adjoins the Arlington, and' will be worked exteusiA'ely  this  summer.    On   the  Arlington  a force of  twenty  men  is  at  work.    The  shaft��� is-  down 425 feet and a drift is being run  north aiid south upon a ten-foot ore body.  Shipments will be commenced in about  ten days.   The Second Relief company, is  also Avorking a force of tAventy men and  has considerable-high grade ore ready for  shipment. 2  THE TRIBUNE:  NELSON,  B.C., WEDNESDAY, MAY 10,  1899.

Missouri within a few days, telling of zinc ore reaching, the record price  of $55 a ton, indicates to these who have  been 'watching  the course of the   zinc  market that there; is likely to be a boom  in zinc mines and mining  shares of much  the same character as that which swept  over the  copper properties a year ago.  The high price of zinc ore is incident to a  like advance in...the ..price of metallic ziuc, ���;  and this in turn has come from a scarcity  of   the '. metal   iu   the  world's. markets.  One of the -'evidences of this scarcity is  that  a recent order  was  received here  Y from London for 2500 tons of zinc, and  the  broker who tried to  fill the order  could buy only 1800 tons after'scraping  the markets.  After being ourselves   dependent for  many ;yearsupon Europe for a part at  least of our supplies of ^inc.   Ameriea  now suddenly finds herself the most important  factor iu  the world in the production of this indispensable metal, with  Europe begging at her doors for more of  it than we have to sell.    This is the more  remarkable when one considers that only  about 'three-years., ago the  demand  for  zinc had fallen so low comparatively that  the  price dropped  to 3] cents a pound,  and it could .hardly be produced. except,  at a loss. Iu'fact.rthere were many ".mines  from  weich none would have beeu produced at-all but for, the fact-that its pro--  duction was incidental to the, producing  of-I cad from the same ores.  it was about six  mouths ago that the  - present strong upward tendency in zinc  , values  began and today metallic' zinc is"  worth (J| to.Oi cents a pound, or practi-  .   cally-twice what  it would, bring three  years ago. * According .to men   well informed in the trade, this advance is due  mostly to natural and* normal'causes and  indicates that the market willjLcontinue  firm and high for zinc for a 'considerable  time,   and    this   notwithstanding,   that  there   has been  within a short time a  "great increase in the production of* zinc  in this country.  The  present situation has come, it is  .  declared,  from   two  causes.    In Europe  tho zinc mines are giving out, while with  - tlio recurrence of good times, both here  and abroad,   the demand for zinc in the  arts has greatly increased.   This demand  is only normal, and so long as good times  continue VjT.I1   keep   growing.    There is  only one special industry where the use  of zinc has become comparatively greater  than it was before.   This is the use in  .   Europe aiid some other '(-fouufrie^Sf sheet  zinc to-take thg;place of ��^rruga*fced iron  =^orn^ofliig7a"n^^i|closi  tliisjiijurpos^llt hiijiprQVejii" greatly superior |jo.*the jjjlaih iroii $pr Steel or,"to? that  "which, was zinccoated or galvanized as it  is styled. The iron oi* steel plate rapidly  eats a**t\fay *by misting atthe hail holes  unless it is kept painted' tjarcfully, while  tho ziiic sheet is unaffected by the  \veather. This is Of great importance in  warin and moist climates such as those of  our new possessions;  The minds, wliich   are   becoming   exhausted abroad are soine of the oldest  and heretofore most important' in the  WoiM'aUd are-pr^  others are iii Algeria.  ft Was not until 1888 that any zinc was  produced in this country, and then it was  Only an experiment, the government producing enough at the Washington' Arisen ���*���  al to make the brass of which to make  the standard weights ordered by congress, This zine was made of the ores  found at Franklin, New Jersey, and it  AvaS from these ores thatthe regular pro-  du^tioh: of zinc xvas first- uiidoi'taken in.  the.fcdnuti'y hi 1$50.

Is now prepared to issue Drafts and Letters  of Credit on Skaguay, U. S., Atlir*, B. C, and  Dawson City, Yul^on District.  Jersey, and the ore is peculiar, requiring  a^sijecial treatment.and producing a number   of  separate   marketable   products.  Other   deposits   have   been    found   and  worked  in   Pennsylvania.  Virginia,   .Arkansas, Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas and  Missouri, but it is principally iu  Missouri in the  Joplin  district that tlie  -recent great development is talcing place.  For   years   many   small   mines   were  Avorked in that district by men who put  into the pits only their labor and  were  content to get out enough to make wages  for themselves.    Recently a more organized method  ofAvork  has been  adopted  and large comiianies formed, with the result of enormously increasing the output,  while  at the same time  increasing   the  chances  of   profit by  more   economical  methods.    In  189(5  the, total production  of metallic zinc for the whole  country  was about 78,000 tons.    In 1897 this had  increased to 100,000  tons, and the Joplin  district  produced   52,000   tons   of   this.  Last year the total production was 225,-  000 tons, and the .Joplin district production, which had been :i(Mi,<)0(),0()0 pounds  of ore in 189(5 and .15(5,000,000 pounds in  1897, rose to -170,000,000 pounds, The  returns for the first quarter of this year  indicate that the output of the region  will be 500,000.000 pounds of ore.  That the present demand and high  prices will stimulate a great increase in  production is certain, but experts declare  tliat any company having good mines  will be certain to make a lot of money  and that prices must remain firm ancl remunerative for a long time. This assertion is based upon the fact that there is  no metal to take the place of zinc in the  arts.  The largest consumers of zinc are the  manufacturers of galvanized iron work.  Then come the brass founders, for zinc is  an important element in brass alloys, anil  large quantities are used in the sheet  form and as an element in galvanic batteries. Zinc is put under stoves and is  used to line bathtubs.  Great quantities of tlie ore arc used  also to make zinc white, or zinc oxide, for  paint, but this is made direct from the  ores and is not materially affected by the  present rise of A'alues, the zinc oxide having,, gone tip only about half a cent a  pound in price. Of this the United  States imported at one time about 30,-  000 barrels a year. Now avc can export  it as we do the metal and ore. Our exports of the ore Avere only 4S.000 pounds  in 1895, but last year rose to 21,0<10,000  pounds, Avhile our exports of pig rose in  the same period from about '3,000,000  pounds to'21,000,000.

Busk, the Kokanee creek  rancher,.is having .his efforts as a stock  raiser frustrated by a hungry Avolf. For  some time past he has been endeavoring  to raise four calves. Three of them were  bull calves, to which he attached little  value, and the fourth was a heifer, which  he thought *As*as destined to supply the  ranch with milk. Air. Rusk's complaint  against the wolf is that in selecting a calf  for a meal on Tuesday he ate the heifer,  instead of one of the bull calves.
