 LOCAL AND MINING NEWS FROM  ADJACENT   TOWNS   AND CAMPS.  Sp jcial to The Tribune.  Kaslo, May 10.���It will be the steainer  International that will run , on the excursion between Nelson and Kaslo on the  24th, and not the Moyie as previously  stated. [The Moyie has been chartered  for the Knights of Pythias excursion.���  Editor Trikunb.] A. Whealler, barrister, of Whealler <fc Martin, returned to  Kaslo last night from England, where he  has been on a visit for several mouths.  Frank O'Brien, at one time a mining  broker here, but now of tho C. P. li. ollice  force at Cascade, is in town.  Messrs. Fleutot, Mansfield &,Morin, the  French mining men, have returned   from  Victoria,   where  they  went   with   li.  F.  Green, M.P.P., to ask  for  an  appropriation for tho South Fork wagon road. Mr.  Green also returned last night.    AVe  expect to hear the result  of their   mission  during the   week.    William   Simpson, of  Simpson brothers, who oavu the  Duncan  City townsite, is in town for the purpose  of arranging  with  the Kaslo  <fc  Slocan  '     company  re a  transfer  of part  of the  townsite in order to get it surveyed   into  lots and jjlaced on the market.    Both the  C. P. R. and Kaslo &  Slocan  gangs  are  rushing tlieir respective  grades  through  the pass at Duncan  City. c The Kaslo &  Slocan   established   their   grade  higher  than the C. P. It.,  and   in scraping  and  digging dumped the dirt on the  C. P. li.  grade, thus giying their opponents twice  as much work as  they would  otherwise  do.    However, as it appears, the Kaslo &  Slocan were successful iu obtaining their  injunction' restraining  the C. P. Ii. from  interfering on their right-of-way through  the pass, it is likely they will  give  the  C. P. li. running powers over  their line  through  this pass in exchange for other  concessions  ou  the  part  of the C. P. R.  Both   companies  are  rushing men, tools  and supplies into the district as fast as  possible.  Silverton.  Sii/VERTON, May 10.���A good strike AA'as  made yesterday on the Queen Fraction  claim, while doing assessment work. The  specunens off the surface of a lead unco vered showed considerable clean galena,  and although nothing has as yet been  done to show up the size or character of  the lodge, all things go to show that the  find is likely to prove a valuable one.  The claim lies below the Galena Mines on  the lake shore, about; ten minutes ~ walk  from   town. V  David   Mathesou   and  M.V  ';.?.

Hon. .1. Fred   Hume had  a   conference  Avith nieinbers of the Nelson school hoard  yesterday afternoon, Avhen   the difficulty  between the board and the education department, which   resulted   in   a    partial  closing of the school, Avas gone into.   Tlie  school trustees impressed the_ minister of  mines  Avith   the reasonableness of their  demands, and .should tho  department at  Victoria show that It is Avilling to  meet  tlio trustees in the  matter, a temporary  rearrangement Avill be made in the school,  so that all pupils Avill be able to attend  at least half a day. The trustees, as a result of the conference, AA'ill make a request  to the department that they be alloAved  to expend in conjunction Avith  the  government's local architect the $2000 voted  for the completion of the two  unfinished  rooms.    If  this  is  done, they  say  that  tliey could have the tAvo rooms ready for  occupancy  in fifteen  days, and   the furnishing of the  two additional teachers  and the supplementing of the  incidental  grant by $150 avou Id wipe out all differences.    Supported as they expect to be  by the minister of   mines, the  trustees  think  that  their  request Avill  be  com-,  plied Avith at once.  The desirability of the city taking over  the management of the school avjis also  discussed, the members of the board  being unanimous in-the'opinion that under municipal control much greater efficiency in the schools could be secured.  As legislation is required to transfer the  school from provincial to municipal control; the-matter will be allowed to remain  in abeyance 'until the next annual meeting of the school board, when'the project  Avill be laid before the electors. As there  can scarcely be tAVo opinions upon the  desirability of the change, it may be predicted that the city-Avill obtain control of  the school at the beginning of the first  fiscal year after the next meeting of the  legislature.

London, May 11.���The Berlin correspondent of the Times says: "A manifesto has been issued, signed by an influential, commmittee of members of  roichstag aiid the Prussian diet, professors and authors, urging that public  lnretiiigs'lK!

A meeting of the Lead Miners' Protective Association AA'as held at Sandon on  Monday evening for the purpose of determining what action should be token by  the mine managers in the eA'ent of the  enforcement of the eight-hour laAV being  accompanied by a demand from the  miners for a continuance of the $3.50  scale, Avhicli is at present paid by the  mines for a ten-hour day. The meeting  was held Avith closed doors, but from a  reliable source Thk Tnibunk learns that  it was decided to meet any demand for a  scale of $o.50 by closing down the mines.  It is not the intention of the mine OAvners  of tho Slocan to wait for the date set for  the enforcement of the laA\\ So soon as  notice of the government's intention to  enforce the law appears in the Official  Gazette the mine OAvners of the Slocan  avIio make up the Lead Miners' Protective  Association will issue a statement of  what wages they are prepared to pay  under the eight-hour laAV, and if they  are not found acceptable to sufficient  miners to render the economical Avorking  of tho mines possible the mines will be  closed down.  The opinion proA'ails that the mine  OAvners Avill be willing to pay $3 per day  to miners as a minimum scale, and that  they Avill not ask any one to AA'ork in the  mines for less than $2.50 per day, bub  Avhether they would be Avilling to pay a  uniform rate of $3 for all the men employed underground could not be learned.  The mine owners profess to be apprehen-  siA-c of trouble, but as the working  miners are not any more communicative  than the mine OAvners, it is impossible to  determine Avhether the mine owners'  fears aro avoII grounded or not.  The number of Avorking miners a\1io  would be effected by the closing down of  the mines in the Slocan is variously estimated at from 700 to 1000, and it is conceded that they are virtually all members of the union. So far as can be  learned, no action lias been decided upon  by tho union, and the general opinion is  that no announcement Avill be made by  the miners until conferences are arranged  between tlie other unions throughout the  district.  The Shortage Made Good.  AVilliam  Gill,  inspector  of inland revenue for the province, spent yesterday  in Nelson checking up the books   of the.  local collector, and leaA'es  this  morning  on the steamer Moyie for Cranbrook.   He  roportsiuvviug found everything  in connection with the Nelson office in'a A'ery  satisfactory condition  and the  revenue  increasing, , Yesterday Mr. Gill received  , a.telcgrriuii-J!roni,_J-^'E.'M.iller; collector of  _inlaiid'rc\renue,* who is in   Spokane; st'at'-,  ing  that W. S. Jones, the Rossland col-, r  leqtoiyAvho' had  loft a shortage of $1242 ,J  hi his accounts, A\'ould return to Rossland  today,  as  the  charge  of embezzlement .  had  been   withdraAvn..    The   Dominion  government had   no  intention of prosecuting' Jones, but  .simply looked" to his :  bondsmen, A. RoA'sbach and Louis  Blue,  to make up tho shortage, which they did.  Mr. Gill has been in   the  inland   revenue,  service for   the past, twelve years, and  paid his first visit to Nolson seA'en years : "  ago, before the railway reached the place.  It was then a mere -hamletand  he  had  little expectation that iu so short a space  of time it Avould groAv into so large, and  prosperous a town.  Is the Agreement Violated? .

French Doctor's Sensational Suicide,  Associated Press.  Palms, May 1,0.���The Suicide at Ghoisy  le Roi, six miles south of Paris, of .Dr. La  Forest* a prominent and wealthy doctor,  has caused a sensation Dr. La Forest  Was accused of disgraceful conduct, and  his arrest was impending. He discussed  tlie position with his Avife and they concluded that, whether he was acquitted or  convicted, he would be ruined financially.  The doctor then resoh't'd to kill himself.  He made his Avill and bidding fareAA'ell to  his wife, shot himself in his bedroom. He  papered, the cracks in the door and window, and then turned on gas. For tAvo * *  hotirs he conversed Avith his Avife through  the closed door, and his voice became  'feebler until he could not be heard. Mine.  La. Forest then informed the police who,  upon entering the room, found him dead.  Wales Gets the Britannia Again.  Associated Press.

Of course  everybody .wears   neckties  nowadays,  and the .variety  of  tliem is  something    remarkable.      Some   of   the  neckties Avorn are exceedingly pretty and  some of the most fetching ones are made  by   thewearers   themselves,   and their  greatest charm to beauty lies in the fact  that fchey are uot skimpy, but have a generous  lot  of lace,  or  muslin,  or  gauze  forming them.    It  does uot require any  great amount of cleverness to .make one  of these neckties, only a little skill Avith  the needle, and a kuoAArledge; of plain sewing.    The necktie should  be long enough  to pass about the  throat tAvice and then  tie in a long boAVin. front.    There are a  number  of very  pretty  ideas  for  new  neckties.    One of the simplest is for dotted gauze.    Tlie dots are mere speckles  and  are sometimes  white,.but  as  often  black, wliich  is a  novelty.    The necktie  is made about half a yard wide and long  enough  to pass twice around tlie neck  and  tie Au a  soft, '.fluffy,- bow iu  front,  Avith ends the same length as. the boAvs.  About the bottom is a-full flounce knife  plaited and trimmed with lace.   When  this flounce'is. set  on a beading of.lace is  used.   AVhen the necktie is tied the knot  should be drawn tight, so that the center  is small and close.    This makes the bows  look much smarter when tliey are pulled  outtlian afrthe knot: was tied doose and ^  Yuiicertain.���YAnotheiYQharniiugadea:fpr.7  .necktief Avhieh ...anyone-.eaii^earivy out* is %  yythatgypi: ,]ilai ii^of tr; tuHe5s;.��wi th��flo weysvi u.��  .7i hlqfe^apjplied."''YTlie^tnU  rY^er$c|6ftVlindv^^  jYqreani color^Oi^ecritt^iTJiis.is.hemined.all;*  ".���jarpuud saUQl .has'V^he^euds^cutli'Qunded-i  h  ��� ^V��i:7.'.^T*,'f.tf.,^ft%V"J'.ii'7''*!��.s.W^u;,V-."J'*".";�� �����>i"'**����."! f  s;^ymXia:y.phs$edyh ty lis ^surrqimdiugi; i��� Above;  'j^thfesfi:flliin/tlietjefe  " ;ai:eM*&niig9 :*tlieYfi6*tve*rs: CofYlatik' cui.-.dii��  -irqin aliy"pretty4aee7pti|tter*tisior pnrchas-  Vfed"idistniqtj" JBut'Yiiij ihisfi fciise ��:*tjijey are  Is f|ow prepared -to issue Drafts and Letters  of Credit on Skaguay, U.

Was   it not intolerable to  be  told that  a medical   practitioner��� lie  was not attacking these professional men  as a Avhole,  these cases Avere the  exceptions��� would  Avrite a   prescription  and  ���have   a   secret   arrangement    that   the  druggist should ghre him twenty-five per  cent on the amount  ofthe drugs?   Was  it not  disgusting  to be  told,  as  a fact,  that if a doctor recommended a particular undertaker  he got  a slice  of the undertaker's  business?   Any one who had  taken the trouble to look into tlie'matter.  would know that these were facts.    They  Avere exceptions���he hoped  rare exceptions���but  Avhere this  moral corruption  existed it blunted the sense of honor and  of honesty. , Not  only  Avas   it  morally  detrimental to those who took part in it  ���demoralizing   to   individuals   and,   in  part, to the community���but it. was unjust and unfair to men avIio maintained a  high standard of probity and of honor.  If lord Russell gets his bill passed into  hv\v there AA*ill still be enormous difficulty  in operating it, for, obviously, where the  giving" and receiving are both made  crimes, the motives for secrecy are  strengthened tenfold, and the likelihood  of detection, diminished as much.  the smoke difficulty, the residual products proved to be of great coiumerci-il  value. In another case the steam produced by the process of destruction was  utilized for tlie driving of electric lighting machinery and other power purposes.  No coal or coke Avhatever avus employed,  and in this instance also there was an  entire absence of smoke. Lord Kelvin's  report demonstrates that our public  bodies have no longer any excuse for  referring to "waste products," but haA'e  Avithin their reach the means of burning  the most unpromising kinds of refuse to a  highly profitably account.

The Secret Trade Commission Abuse.  Lord Russell of Killowen, in spite of  the sneers of solicitors and "the city," is  pressing on his bills to cheek  the abuses  of the Co*inp|\nies ^ets. aiid t]ie gh ing of  secret trade conlftiissioiis.    H[e intrOdtices  his bill lnaking the giving or receiving of  Secret commissions in trade bargains a  liiisdemgaiidr, punisl^abje Avith, two, years'  imprisonment,   into  the 'house Of lords  next Aveek.    It Avas discussed by the Lon-  dorl chamber of, commerce this Aveek and  generally approyed.   The recent deA:elpp-  ments in the life of the country, of whieh  it is a part, Avere criticised interestingly.  Lord  Russell,  aa^Iio AAras at the meeting,  said the London  chamber had a right to  be proud of the stand it had taken ou  secret commissions.   There AA-as no reason  in the Avorld AVhy men should.not stipulate for any manned of compensation or  commission they might choose, piwided,  ahvays,   that   it ,\yas open   and   above  board.   Therefore, let no.one for a moment think that the provisions of his bill  Avere of.so drastic aikind that.they could  possibly  act  .with; .undue   severity   or  harshness   upon  any   outspoken  honest  men.   The bill would probably receive a  first and second reading  iu the house of  lords.   It .avouId! ; then   probably be  referred to a( committee of that house, and  doubtless     be     considerably    improved  there.   But in order to carry the bill  through both ]ipuses:into laAV, they Avant-  ed the strong pressure of public opinion in  favor of its passing.

Bellamy returned on Tuesday  niglit from the Kamloops district, where  he spent the past five weeks examining  properties I'or Colorado and California  syndicates. .He reports that in the vicinity of Kamloops there are a. number of  prospects with good copper .showings,  but there has not been enough development work done to prove them to be  mines. The showings, however, indicate  that it will turn out to be a rich copper  camp. In his opinion the owners of  claims are retarding the development of  the cam]) by asking excessive prices for  mere prospects without any development.  S. .1. Mighton has settled with his creditors, all of them having accepted the  olTer he made of 35 cents on the dollar.  Arthur IrC. Hodgins will be appointed a  member of the licensing board of thecity  of Nelson, on recommendation of the  Hume campaign committee.

That the volume  of business  handled  by the merchants of Nelson is on   the increase is shown by the incoming and outgoing freight handled  by the Canadian  Pacific railway.'   The  incoming freight  for the  local   merchants  averages   four  carloads per  day,  and  the ��� outgoing' is  close upon  tliree carloads.    The growth  in the  outward,  freight  is A'ery-marked.  It is consigned to Rossland, Trail, Slocan  points, Revelstoke aiid all points south.  C. E.

The  company has plenty of capital and Mr. Perry  expects to  make quite a cleanup when  the   ground  is   in    shape   for   working.
