To tho Arbitration Proposal.
The Hague, Juno 17.—It is important
that the present situation regarding the
board of arbitration question be clearly
understood. The work of the peace conference has been virtually suspended, on
this point, and probably will not be resinned for several days. On semi-official
authority it is said the situation i.s practically this: The German government
was opposed on principle to an organized
arbitration court, and it has been found
that these views existed prior to the conference, and tliat instructions to this
effect were given the German delegates.
Tlie conviction also existed in Berlin that
other powers, notably France, were instructing their delegates similarly.
As the conference proceeded the  spirit
of conciliation advanced, and the  desire
to accomplish  important permanent  results was manifested.    "With this grew up
schemes   for   an   organized    arbitration
board, notably tlie British   proposals  to
which  nearly  all  the   delegates  rallied
with the authoritative  support of  tlieir
respective  governments.     This at once
left the German  delegates in a  peculiar
position.    The difficulty was not at The
Hague but at Berlin.    Iu order to relieve
the situation Count Von Muuster head of
the German delegation, after a long  conference yesterday with his colleagues decided  to dispatch Dr.  Zorn  and  Baron
Von Stengel to inform the emperor  personally of the  condition of affairs.    In
tlie meantime efforts had  been   nufde  to
find means of conciliating by tho creation
of a  limited board   established at  The
Hague   under   the    ordinary   representatives of the powers which was  proposed by Mr.  Andrew  White, head of  the
American    delegation.      This   plan'   Dr.
Zorn and  Von  Stengel,  have beeu  commissioned to present to emperor. William.
The  question,  therefore,  is  what  his
majesty will reply.    The most important
fact is that the German  delegation from
Berlin were accompanied by Mr.  Hollis,
secretary   of   the  American  delegation,
who is able to explain fully the American
plan.    In the meantime the delegates of
the great powers here have been merely
marking time.    The  delegates of Russia,
Great Britain and France have held several meetings concerning which the delegates preserved silence probably because
no definite  decision  had been  reached.
There is a growing belief that emperor
William is favorable,  and  if the  other
powers will accept the new plan as the
basis "of .discussion,the .cpuferemtje-'will at

sul at that point to make an endeavor to
trace him, so the latter wired premier
Semlin requesting some information if
aiiy were obtainable. Mr. Semlin immediately communicated by wire witli the
Canadian Pacific railway oflicials, and today received a message from Mr. Marpole
to the effect that Mr. Schmucker had
gone east on the 7th instant. The missing man fully intended sailing on the
Teutonic.         - :| -.,
Another Strike Imminent.
Buffalo, June 17.—A secret- meeting
of representatives from the coal heavers'
union, the ore handlers,..elevator men,
marine firemen, freight handlers aud
grain shovelers was held tonight to consider the next step to be taken in an endeavor to force the Erie Railroad Company to grant the demand of the freight
handlers for an increase of wages. The
situation was thoroughly discussed and a
proposition was drawn, up demanding,
the increase. This proposition will be
submitted to the Erie company by a committee on Monday. Should the company
again refuse to grant the increase the
committee is to report back to the different unions, and a general strike of all
men employed along the docks will be
ordered. .0 '

Upon the Contract Basis.
The Trihune has been informed upon
good authority that the management of
the Athabasca mine has decided to bridge
the present difficulty between the mine
and the miners' union by letting a number of contracts. As has been previously
noted this policy was adopted at the
Granite mine, and also at the Royal Canadian, so that should the Athabasca management follow suit it Avill practically
settle the eight-hour trouble so far as the
mines in the immediate vicinity of Nelson
are concerned.
The officers of the miners' union
are not seeking any trouble with the
mining companies over the question of
the recognition of the union, and Avheii-
ever there is a chance to put members of
the union to Avork in any of the properties upon terms which renders it possible to secure the union scale of Avages
they accept it. They look upon the
adoption of the contract system as an
indication on the part of the companies
of a desire to bridge present difficulties,
and AA'ill phice no obstacle in the Avay.

Loose Ball Game at Ymir.
The baseball match betAveen the Nelson and the Ymir teams avjis a very onesided affair, resulting in an easy victory
for Nelson, owing to lack of practice by

The Transvaal Problem.
Loxnox, June l"i.—-The Transvaal
sibuation is still the {.114-bsorbing topic
of discussion in Great Britain, and even
the continent lias caught the disease,
though in a less virulent term. Outwardly the qTiestioYi seems to have advanced but little, though those Ayho are
supposed to be oh the inside think the
cause of the Uitlanders has gone up
several points. The publication of the
Transvaal blue book, Avitli the emphatic
den a nciatioti of lYauS vaal niethodS,..etti 11 g
forth in measured paragraphs the alleged
political, financial and judicial incompetencies of the administration of president Kruger, and adopting as part of the
government's oavu programme: all the
grievances of the Uitlanders, constituted
a step of the highest • import. It is regarded as an unmistakable Avarning to
the Transvaal, as Avell as an indication to
the people of South Africa generally,
that the government has 'arrived at a
fixed decision from which it is impossible
to recede, and there are not lacking indications that the hint has not been lost
at Pretoria.

output of thirty tons per day can be obtained—that is, at the rate of about

March, 1800, AA'ere 1,909,355,000 pesetas,
of Avhieh 1,790,290,000 pesetas Avere for
Cuba, 7,007,000 for Porto Rico and 105,-
98Sy500 i^esetas for the Philippines. Of
these sums 1,445,279,000 are represented

The conferences Avhicli are uoav being
held betAveen the special committee of
the South Kootenay Board of Trade and
F. W.Peters of the Canadian Pacific rail-
Avay will probably result in the accomplishment of much toAvards the recognition of Nelson as the distributing
center for Southern Kootenay and
The  chief" question   Avhieh the  representatives   of   the   boa ril   are   iioav endeavoring to settle Avith the railway company is the area which shall be  considered  as   Nelson    territory.     At  the  first
meeting  of the committee the  members
were inclined to think  that the railway
company  proposed to  restrict the  territory which it would  consider tributary
to Nelson  to the Slocan and  Kootenay
lakepoints.J This, hoAveA*er, AA'as not favorably regarded by the Avholosale men.Avho
maintain that the Nelson area'should extend to Revelstoke on the  north, Fernie
on   the    east    and    Penticton   on    the
A\'est.       They    base    their    claim    for
this extended area upon   the  contention
that they could not profitably carry the
large stocks AA'hich the trade   requires if
they  AA'ere  restricted  to the  small area
Avhicli Avas first hinted at.    The members
of the  committee  are  inclined  to think
that the' will accede to
their demands.
At the last meeting each member of
the conimittee Avas requested, to make
out a list of the chief commodities which
they handle, for the purpose of ascertaining AA'hether there is at present any
discrimination against Nelson in the rail-
Avay coinpany's rates. These lists will be
presented on Monday, when some satisfactory solution may be expected. -

An important foreign office official  says that the distorted partistiu reports  of the doings of Germany's representatives at The Hague are calculated to create false impressions. It was on account  of this that count Minister proposed that  full reports of the transactions from  day to day be given out officially. As regards England's proposal  for a permanent court of arbitration,  this goes beyond the. Russian proposal.  Germany's objection to this was that it  failed to provide essential features, such  as absolute impartiality. As soon as  guarantees of such impartiality are given  Germany Avill be able to assent. Some  method, he thought, Avould probably'-be  found to improve on the. incompleteness  and unfairness of..the .meetings of the  conference now in A*ogue.  Although it is difficult to separate fact  from fiction iu ..the multiplicity of .-the  conflicting stories, it is the general impression of those in a position to know  that the conciIiatory despatch': which Dr.  Ley ds, the. representative in Europe; of'  _'__bJie_'Ti,i\n'*i:yaal.u^  p .._,..._..,._..

Depew  exposition,   he    and  Frank Buck land, the naturalist, when  collecting -information about White of  Selborne, met with an old lady who professed to have seen him, "a Avhite-haired  old gent who used to walk about his garden with a crocodile." "Wasn't it a tortoise?" suggested Buckland. The old lady  admitted it might have been "one of tlieni  furren birds."  Dumas the elder was not in the habit  of counting his money, but did so once,  afterward leaving it on the mantel while  he left the room for a few minutes.  When he returned, and was, giving some  instructions to a servant, he mechanically  counted the pieces over again, and found  a louis missing. "Well," he said, with a  sigh, "considering that= I never counted  niy nioney before, I can't say it pays."  A story at the expense of the colonial  secretary is going the rounds. Mr. Chamberlain, when a little boy, was playing  one day with his sister at a game of  "battles"���each child having a regiment  of toy soldiers and a popgun to fire at the  enemy. The little girl's soldiers went  down quickly under her brother's heavy  firing, and he Avas proclaimed the victor.  Thoughtful child, he had glued his men to  the floor.  was at the  president  Callaway   of   the   New   'York    Central  chanced   to go into  a booth  on the Midway Plaisanee.    It Avas a tame en te r tain -  nieut and   their stay   would .have  been  very brief except for the fact that they  had   scarcely   taken   their   seats  before  there began a steady inpouring of people,  which continued until the small auditorium was crowded.    Half an  hour's wait-,  ing failed to reward tlieir  patient expectancy,  howeA'er,  and Mr.  Callaway suggested that they move on.    Just then ex-  secretary of agriculture 3. Sterling Morton pushed  his way through the crowd,  and extending his hand to Mr. Depew exclaimed:    "Well,  Mr. Depew,  so you are  really here!    I thought that 'barker' was  lying."    "What do yon mean?"  inquired  Mr. Depew.    "Why, tlie 'barker' for  this  shoAvis standing outside and inviting.the'  crowd to   'step up   lively'  and  pay ten  c..nts for the prmlege of seeing the 'great  and only Chimney M. Depew.' "  Some time ago a young poet brought  tlie manuscript of a Volume of his verses  to a Avell-knoAvii London publisher and  agreed to pay for its publication,* he being  allowed to deduct such copied as chanced  to be sold. Time passed and the book  was published, but the poet could not  find a copy of it anywhere except in a  feAv bookstores. In despair he Avrote to;  the publisher to know Iioav miich he owed  and to close up the deal. To his astonishment he received a check for fifty  pounds Avith the intimation that the book?  had "gone up." The bewildered poet'  wrote.back   ahiote to   know  where  the  a large amount of shipping ore in sight  and is becoming quite a factor among our  local mines. It i.s held under bond and  lease by J. M. M. Benedum and Stewart  Brothers, and tinder Avhose management  it is being operated. It i.s probably needless to remark that this is a union mine  and conforming to "the eight-hour law  and union scale of wages*.  His Secret Agents Were Bloodsuckers.  President Kruger has determined to  abolish the political secret service which  has cost the state so much nioney. The  sums paid Avere enormous, and at least  one-fifth of the entire Avhite population  Avere on the list. The barmaids of Johannesburg came in for a particularly large  share eachmonth. This body of so-called  agents has been responsible for much of  the unrest in the Transvaal. To prove  their vigilance they constantly sent reports to the chief detective in Johannesburg that for the most part consisted of  the suspicious sayings of men at the public bars, when they had indulged too  freely. Mr. Kruger has at last arrived at  the conclusion that his agents are nothing  more than blood-suckers, who live at tlte  expense of the state, and draAv pay for  furnishing false iicavs.  FULL LINE OF  HOTEL   ARRIVALS.  �� SILVI.R KING.  .S.

During the siege of Paris, Dr. W. II.  'Russell, unpleasantly familiar to Americans as "Bull Run Russell," was acting as  war correspondent fOr the London Times,  and was very much in Bismarck's society.  One evening, when Bismarck had been  denouncing the other English . papers  with his usual violence and pungency of  phrase, Dr. Russell took occasion to observe, in a self-complacent way: "Well,  you must admit, count Bismarck, that I,  at least, have been entirely discreet iu  everything that I have written to the  Times. Ybu have ahvays conversed be-  Fore me with the utmost frankness upou  all sorts of subjects, and I have been  most careful never to repeat a word of  anything that youhave said."
