NELSON:  THURSDAY MORNING JANUARY 10 1901  ___  PRICE FIVE CENTS  FEDERAL AUTHORITIES DOFT LIKE IT  Rumor That They Will Request Modification of Legislation Against Chinese Immigration.  PREMIER DUNSMUIR TO BE CONSULTED WHEN IN OTTAWA  Ottaava, January 9.���Some concern is expressed here "at the fact  that the province of Briti-sh Columbia has re:enacted and. brought into  force provisions similar to those of  the Natal Immigration Afi^^hich  practically excludes  from entry into  eraianot make  in at least one of the European  lnnguaKos. The Dominion law per-  .uits the admission of Chinamen  ���on payment of a poll tax. of $100,  and it is felt that unless the pro-  viuce of British Columbia modifies  its immigration regulations or  withdraws;, from its present position, there * is danger of a serious  clash with the federal government.  Jti_rregarded as likely that the  attention of premier Dunsmnir will  be called to the .matter when he  comes to Ottawa in a. few days.  ' No Labor Trouble in Kootenay.

Throughout  the Slocan and Nelson districts all  is working between the two as well  a*** could be desired.'  This state of  affairs must be the case  where a.  conciliatory spirit on both sides is  kept well in view."    In speaking of  tlie  labor  conditions  in  Rossland,  he said :* "I have no't  found any  material change since my last visit.  There may be something yet to desire, a more unquestioning and less  merely formal feeling of trust aud  friendship between the two great  classes.    I  would  willingly do  ajl  within   my   power  to  bring   this  : about.    But this a matter  which  , only  mutual' agreement can   pro-  i duce.

Tierney   &   McPhail -Have   Finished  Their Contract for ihe Construe-  tion of the Centre Star Spur,  The steamboat men plying out of  the port of Nelson -Have an agitation on hand to establish a local  board   of   examiners ' for masters'  * * I.  and mates' certificates. The mat-  ter was to have been brought to the  attention of the official of the department of marifte and fisheries,  who visited Nelson'a-ecently but the  "' ��** *"  parties interested could not be got  together during the- visitor's short  stay in the city. The' understanding is that-*.the   department will  ' *��� "**  place a representative permanently  in British'C6lumbia*after this"win-  ter and inr"this eveni; an ."effort will  be made*to-secure the appointment  of local examinersTvThe arguments  brought forward in Support of the  idea are.'first, .the?saying, in time*  and money to,candidates for -masters' - and   mates'. certificates.' _ At,  present such candidates are'required  to go to   Victoria^ fop examination,  at an expense' of not- less than $100  outside of; tbe "sala'ry lost during  their absence and as)'candidates'are  almost always actively engaged; on  the lakes it is-frequently a matter-  bf extreme _ difficult'^Vfor themj"to,'  leave their'occupatiop at the, particular'period * when^the*.exn mina-.  .tions-are "held' atj��the C6'ast._:rThe  contention is made'f urther, that ex-;  aminers who1 are more familiar with  the requirement pfepftibeys who are  to navigate^inlSnd:;waters"'will give,  candidates ".a. more\practical**test  than they would r^Eeceive at,-the  Coast, swhere'.thfti*1 examiners '/are'  naturally more/familiar with deep  sea .na*agaJ;ibn^ii-��jTh^lac.aJv;menr  would not demand ."that the deeis-"  ions of a local  board  of ' examiners  should be final and would be  quite  willing to have  candidate's  papers  forwarded to the Coast for final  marking and approval... The suggestion seems to be reasonable.  Looking; for Ice..   ���-  Mariners who are familiar with  the weather conditions on the lake-  expect to see the west arm frozen  over within the next few days.  Already ice has formed for several  feet out from the banks on either  side, and nothing but the brisk  breeze which has prevailed for the  past week has prevented the ice  from extending across. Should  this wind drop, as seems extremely  probable,-ice js ccrtain,to form Informer winters such conditions  were viewed with misgivings by  the transportation people, but the  construction of the Balfour extension has done away with any danger of a tie-up in traffic. Barges  can be unloaded at Procter, and  their loads brought into the city as  rapidly, as they could be towed  down, and the same applies to the  passenger trafiic.  Finished the Contract.  Tierney. & McPhail have finished  their contract with the C. P. R. for  the construction of the spur from  the C. P. line at Rossland to the  Centre Star and Black Bear properties. The Great Northern  is building a section of the spur  and work- oh their section is riot  progressing very rapidly,, the  matter nOw being in litigation.  McPhail & .Tierney's plant was  brought back to Nelson yesterday.  When the spur is completed the Le  Roi people will be enabled to lay  down coke, coal and supplies' at  their Black Bear compressor by  rail instead;of teaming from the  depot at a heavy expense. In the  course of the- work* an"-interesting  mineral strike was made. The'spur,  crosses the Pack Train claim and  the cutting opened a;Strong vein of  mineral. Assays-were taken from  the ledge which' averaged $20.80  per ton. The value of the Pack  Train property was materially enhanced by the discovery of the  ledge. During the fall McPhail &  Tierney did considerable work for  the C. P. R. between Ne-SOQ ar-d  Robson and on other section of the  road. '  Roosevelt on Pugs.  Chicago, January 9.���Vice-president Roosevelt, in an interview on  prize   fighting,   published iu   the  Tribune, said: Boxing might have  been'going" on in New York right  now, if the men who had charge of  the clubs had handled it right.  They made a mistake by not stopping contests when they became  brutal, or when it was" manifest to  all that oue of the contestants had  no possible chance of winning. He  cited the Jeffries-Sharkey bout,  which he said should havo been  stopped at the end of the 23rd.  round, as it became brutal after  that and Sharkey had no chance-  Mr. Roosevelt characterized the Mc-  Coy-Corbett fight as a sell out, and  added that there were only a few  honest fighters.

The underground  work at the mine is now largely  confined to a long crosscut tunnel  designed to tap the ore body several hundred feet lower than the  original workings. This is expected to give the, owners a very  large tonnage in si_ht. The wagon  road recently completed, to the  May and Jennie is in splendid condition, and the transportation  facilities are excellent.  Ore Moving Lively.  The London Consolidated Company has exceptionally fine sleigh-  *"ing_from���the~Silvei,���Hill-mine- to  Crawford Bay, and the management figures on shipping 30 tons of  ore daily from now until the sleighing breaks up. The grade from the  top of the .wagon road to the bay  is so easy that the teams which  McVeigh Brothers have at work  are hauling unusually large loads.  .Every effort is being made to take  full advantage of the fine sleighing.  The Molly Gibson road is also in  good shape and the property is  shipping regularly. Similar reports are to-hand from the Slocan,  aud unless circumstances prevent  the total of the ore shipments for  the first quarter of 1901 "promises  to break all previous records.  Work on the Homestako.  On the Homestake and .T. C. P.  claims, near the May and Jennie,  the owners, J. C. and Dave Porter,  have a crew of men at work. They  are crosscutting to tap a strong  vein discovered last spring, and as  yet undeveloped. In event of this  being located in place the owners  propose to go lower down the hill  and crosscut to strike the vein at a  depth of 100 feet or more.  Latest Casualty List.

UP TO LAST ACCOUNTS BELIEVED NOT A LIFE WAS LOST  Marseilles, January 9.���Whon  night fell yesterday quite a number  of the incoming passengers were  seen clinging to the fore rigging  and deck rails of the ill-fated Russie  steamer, making despairing signals  for succor, which those ashore were0  powerless to afford. The gale increased in fury all night long, and  though a flickering light was perceived .from time to time, apparently waved by those, ou board to  attract attention, it was feared the  steamer would either break or disappear in the sinking sands by  morning.  A thousand persons waited along  the shore, and the fishermen prepared to launch a boat at'-the first  sign of the abatement of the hurricane. When day broke it was a  great relief for the watchers ashore  to find that'the bow and other parts  of ,the ship .were still' above .water.  The stern had completely vanished.  A group of men, huddled on the  steamer's bow, rendered their appeals for help. As the day-wore on  more persons appeared on the-deck  forming three .groups,- one -at, the  haw, anbtbeivon the bridge, and a  third around* tlie'funnel. Thus it  was seen that most of the crew and  passengers, numbering 102 according to a corrected listj were still  living. ,-  '. A signal message was received at  '3 o'clock -in^ the afternoon,* sayiug  /that up, to that' time . no one: had  perished. The Russie lay partly on  her beam ends, with her "deck- fac*-.  dng^seawai^jiaitui'c.'.the .c^asl^hicli"*  "had carried her 'hatchways*: away'  hid filled the holds and cabins witlr  water. Every possible expedient  was tried form shore to,'save"the  sufferers. The coast guardsmen  and fishermen manned the life-,  boats and made several ineffectual  attempts to reach the steamer.'  which was being shifted by the incessant pounding of the seas, a  trifle nearer the shore. One lifeboat got half way out and was capsized. Its crew swam back, and  were dragged out of the water by  the people ashore, who formed a  line with hands joined and waded  breast deep into the water to save  them. -'  A tug approached as near as pos-  sible to the wreck, and then flew a .^ i  kite to which a lifeline was  attached in the direction of the  ship, but it failed to reach the  stranded vessel. Floats were al_o  sent out from the beach with lines,  but in no case did they succeed in  reaching the steamer. The tug-;,  which made repeated efforts to approach the vessel, were themselves ,  menaced with disaster and' obliged  to relinquish the attempts.  Late in the  afternoon ~ another  expedient was tried, that of launching a raft with a lifeline from a tug  lying off the wreck.   The result of t  this attempt to reach the endan- ���  gered crew and passengers^ of the,  Russie   is   not   yet known.     The   -,  most   hopeful .news was   received  late this afternoon that  the gale; .  was subsiding." A message, posted *  at 3:30 p. m., says that up to that-  time all on board the Russie were  alive. " " ,-*��������� ���**.  .

Four well played and closely contested curling games were played  yesterday at the rink between  Nelson and Rossland curlers.

The McArthur-Rae match  started out badly for Nelson, Rossland being five up in the first end.  The score was eleven-three for  Rossland when Nelson's luck changed  and five points were piled Up, followed quickly by three more, but  Rossland was not to be overtaken  and pulled out two points up.  After the games the visitors and  the local curlers made merry at  Fraternity hall, where refreshments were served. J. B. McArthur, speaking for the visiting curlers, requests The Tribune to give  expression to their hearty apprecia  -tion-^of���the - hospitable���treatment-  accorded them during their stay in  the city.      Knocked Ont the Canteen.  Washington, January 9.���The  array canteen is to be abolished, a9  the senate today, by a very decisive  vote, concurred in the house provision relating to the array canteen.  Only fifteen votes could be must-'  ered in. the senate in favor of the  canteen and 31 were cast against.  Most of the time today was occupied by senators Teller of Colorado, Pettigrew of South Da-'  kota, and Cutler of North Carolina, who all opposed the adop- ���  tion of the senate committte's  amendment, which provided for  a continuance of the canteen.  Before disposing finally of the canteen the senate accomplished little,  and it seems doubtful whether a  final vote upon the measure will be  reached before Friday or Saturday.  The rapid growth of the saloon in  Manila was referred to by several  senators, all agreeing that something should be done to restrict the  traffic. Mr. Lodge said that while  he did not believe the canteen had  done any particular harm in the  Philippines, he was convinced that  the saloon had .done incalculable  harm there.

HUDSON'SBAY  STORES.  ffihe ffiribtmc*  This majority of thinking people  tire of the opinion that there should  be an- entire separation of. Church  and State in Canada. . That the  Church 'is maintained by individuals for individual good; .that the  State is maintained by all the people for the common good. . The  fathers and mothers of the children  who are educated at the expense of  the-State are not,all members o!  one Church; many of them are not  members of any Church. Then,  why'should the childreuof parent's  who _ do noL affiliate with any-  Church be compelled to receive religious instruction in schools maintained by the State?  -Religious in-   sti,uetionJn_school8_mi_,htJbe_good,_  or it might be bad; but it is certainly a question with which the  State has no concern. The public  schools of British Columbia are as  free to the child of Catholic parents  as to the child of Presbyterian  parents, and there is no de-  liiand for J religious instruction  in the schools; yet the people  of this province dwell together in  peace and harmony, and the children are probably just as well-behaved and just as good as tho children of provinces where people are  continually harping for either separate public schools or for religious  instruction in the public schools.  Oi-** the 1424 inmates of penitentiaries in Canada, 103 were total  abstainers and 742 temperate in  the use of intoxicating liquors before entering the reformatory institution. ____________  The Church of England lias 210  of its members in the penitentiaries  of Canada, yet only 124 of those in  the penitentiaries were born in  England.      -    Tatlow's "Act to Regulate Immigration into British Columbia"  seems to be repugnant to an Act of  Parliament which'"allows Chinese  to land in Canada on payment of a  head tax of $100. The Tatlow Act  requires all immigrants -to write  out and sigh in the characters of  some.language of Europe a declaration :Vtjia*-i>'' "they/ are of good  4-hnroctejY etc.    The Chinese will  be unable to do this-, yet the  regulations of the Dominion allow  them to enter the province on tlie  payment of $100. It looks as if  everything had to be sacrificed to  the payment of the Almighty  Dollar.        '���The 2 per cent tax on mineral is  " the most equitable way of taxing  " a mineral claim. Your arguments  " iu its favor are all right." The  words quoted is the opinion of a  man who has followed mining for a  living for more than a dozen years.  Of course, his opinion is no better  than that of auy other mining  man: but it goes to show that  mining men are not all of ono way  of thinking.        o  FIVE HUNDREDJN  PRIZES  Offered to Tribune Subscribers.

The loss is $35,000,,  which is covered by insurance.  TO THE ELECTORS OF NELSON:  At the request of a number of olectors, I havo  decided Io offer inyrolf as a candidate for mayor  at the coming civic elections. . I have, served as  alderman two years of tho four during  which the city has been conducting its own affairs, and my record whilo in tho council on the  questions.that aro now the most import-ant issues  beforo the people of th-s city U such as will bear  inspection.  1 believe that the city hns valuable assets in tho  water and electric light system'*, and while in  the council 1 did everything possible to safeguard  theso assets; and if elected mayor no act or vote  of mine will be in favor of allowing any outside  corporate interest to become a competitor with  ill's city in the business ot oloctric lighting, a  business in which tbe city has already invoatcd  SiO.OO'*.  While in the council in 1807, T voted in favor of  incorporating .a fair wage clauso in all contracts,  and that principle was carried out in both letter  and spirit. I see no leason lo chango my views  on that question now. And I believe, further,  that with competent foremen and superintendence that the city can get as good value for tho  money spent by having tho greatbulk of its work  done by day's labor as by the contract system,  and no good reason can bo advanced why the  cily should not pay the sftme rate of wages and  work men the same number of hours as prevails  in private enterprises.  lam in favor of giving the business and property intorests every sa'eguard possible, and to  that end I believe the fire department should be  made as efficient as possible, consistent with the  revenues of tho cily.  Nelson thould bo kept in advance, of its rivals,  and every! lrng possible must be done to induce manufacturing enterprise* to locato here,  for it is Ihe payrolls that build up the cities of  today.  Nelson, a western cily, is as*;ordcrly and law  abiding as eastern cities. This is because the  people of Nelson are tolei ant. I believe that this  spirit of toleration should be continued, and I  will if elected mayor-do. no act to abi idge or cur-  t ail tho rights or piivileges of one class of our  citizens merely because another class 'may have  different views.   * ���  Tlioci'y hnsm-utaashi'-'t in permanent street  improvements, and I am in favor of continuing  these improvements as fast as possible, with due  regard lo the revenues of the city.  It elected mayor, I am in a' position and will  pledge myself Io devote my time to the conluct  of the city'o bu~iiiesj.  FRANK FLETCHKR.  Nelson. December ISth.-lOK).

J.  Fred Hume) attention to the need  of some legislation in this direction,  but Joe Martin got in his deadly  work about that time, and there  was no minister left .to, write to.  Later oh, last summer, at the invitation ' of . tho . gold commissioner  here, who had received a. circular  letter from the minister "of mines  (lion. Richard McBride),. asking for  thu opinions of. practical miner.0, 1  drafted a number of ' suggested  amendments to the Mineral Act, of  which the following .was one:  ~_\7~1'Tjli\v   to   Protect   A~Cr.xi*>.r  Against   Liisn    WiiKaV   Under  Lease or Bond.  A mining property cannot be  altacked-or held for . any- debt contracted by its bonder or ^leaser  (bor'ido'i- or lessee), if the owners  shall have giveu.due public notice-  that they would not be responsible  for labor or supplies furnished'such  bonder or leaser. "Due public,  ���notice" shall consist in stating the  exact facts connected therewith iu  writing, and iii posting such-notice  conspicuously"on tho premises and  in publishing it in the nearest  newspaper during the life * of the  lease or bond.  There may be some clause in the  . Mechanics'Lieii Act which would  'conflict with the ".above, but it (che  Mechanics- Lien Act) should be  changed so'_ as to not in anyway  interfere' with the Mineral Act.  The above should be ajaw.in force  in British Columbia; a .similar law  is operative in California and other  sti'e* o'jthe union. Our reason is  that in the event of a .prospector  bonding his claim, and desiring to  take a .trip with the money received as ii first payment, arid  while away, the bonder not fiudiiig  the property to turn out as well as  expected, stops work; abandonsthe  claim, fails to pay the men and  store bills, and leaves the property  and1 its absent owner liable for all  incumbrances. ������; This has happened  so many.: times in Kootenay that  the need of a remedy is imperative.  The Situation in South Africa.  The army under lord. Kitchener's  command nownumbers some 210,000  men.

Kitchener * has .thus    been  augmented/and until he has been  furnished  withisuch' additions  to  his mounted force as he may require  we shall not expect to hear of much  real progress beingmade. Surveying  the entire theater of war,  and accepting   tlie   statement, that  the  guerrilla forces of the enemy number approximately from  12,000  to  15,000 men, it is no exaggeration to  say    that   from   '40,0013   to   50,000  mounted   riflemen,   with , a    very  large* reserve "of   seasoned horses,  will   not ���be   too   much  for their  effectual    and    final . suppression,  having.the dismounted, troops and  heavy   field  artillery  to hold  the  fortified strategic points and- the  lines    of    communication.      Commenting    on     general     Clements'  recent defeat, the Army and Navy  GAzette-says.: ,.T,he-key_of Jiis_posi*_  tion,   which   also   commanded his  camps, was insufficiently fortified,  if at all.   The four companies of  the 2nd battalion Northumberland  Fusiliers who held  it ��� were posted  according to a.telegram from  the  Standard's correspondent, dated the  l'lth of December' in the center of  a.depression, wbich reminds one of  the cup-shaped depression in which  our men  were caught on Majuba  Hill.    This  post was  occupied  by  about 000  men,  and  Delarey  was  known, to havo* a   superior force  close at hand, but it was not known  that by a forced night march 3000  "more had come from Warmbaths,  and were upon  the ground  ready  to;commence an assault at dawn.  General   Broadwuod,    only   seven  'miles. off,  was   apparently out of  touch and rendered no assistance.

As to Palmistry.  Vancouver Province  Friends and champions of palmistry���and there are inauy of them  in this city, as evidenced by the,  profits of madame Rheo and others  ���will be interested in a little experiment made not long ago by the  New York Herald.    A member of  the Herald staff secured a perfect  impression of the paw (or hand) of  Pat Rooney IL, the Central park  chimpanz.ee, and sent it to Perin,  the most famous palmist in New  York under the cognomen "XXX  13," with tho following.questions  scrawled in schoolgirl penmanship  '���How loug will I live?  "What am J.best adapted for?  '���When will I be married?"  The,great   expert fell into the  trap and replied:  "Yqu will live to be fifty-four.  "You are best adapted for a decorator.  . You will be married at twenty-  five."  . The Herald says that it-is altogether out of the question for  Rooney to become a decorator, and  adds:  "Pat Rooney is ^now,-nearly two  years old, and if he lives to be fifty-  four will break all known laws of  zoology, for his species seldom reach  an age of eight years iu captivity,  and never over twelve. His marriage at .twenty-five would also  break records built up in thousands  of years."   U. S. Sailors Lost in Storm.

The Nelson hockey club has finally decided to go to Sandon for a  game on Wednesday next. The  match will be of morethan ordinary  interest because the result will  serve as a test of the team's ability.  Correspondence has been commenced with Rossland, Revelstoke,  Greenwood and Kaslo with a view  to securing games with those teams  during the season. Last night's  practice was postponed till tonight  because of the carnival, and the  club will practice tomorrow night  also.  * The late Angus MeFarlane will  probably be buried by the city.

Miss Agnes Jean Campbell and  Colin C. Brown were married in  Hollister, California, on New Year's  day.

Forbes, Brown and Sims, and that  he would return to Nelson in a few  days.  si ties of the congregation. Several  of the managers believe, however,  that an edifice to seat about 050  people and to cost $20,000 to .$25,000  should be erected. The matter is  to be gone into at length during the  next, week or two. ���  The Jewel Came Back.  E* C.

Two  years ago a traveling case in which  the jewel lay was stolen on a C. P.  R. train.    Efforts were"made to recover the bag without success*, and  finally it was   given   up   for lost.  About ���Christmas,''   however,   Mr.  Davidson, received a letter from a  liveryman in Winnipeg stating that  an   employee, of 'the   stable   had  handed him  for safe keepiog a fraternal jewel bearing Mr. Davidson's  name.   The employee   claimed   to  have found  the jewel; alongrthe C.  P. R. track.    It was readily identified, and now Mr. Davidson has his  property again,'wliilo the C. P. R.  detectives are endeavoring to trace  the traveling bag.    "  Welcomed Their Pastor.  The congregation of ..the Baptist  church extended a"cordial welcome  to their new "pastor, Rev. J.

Among the prospective building  enterprises for J901 is a handsome  new church for the congregation of  Sb Paul's. The project is now under discussion and some action will  probably be taken at the annual  congregational meeting on Thursday ne��t. The present edifice was  erected in the early nineties and  the membership of tlie church has  grown so steadily since that time  that the capacity of the building is  conceded to be inadequate. ��� The  question of a new church has been  before the congregation for sbme  time, but it was only at the last  ineotiug of the board of managers  that action wiis taken to place the  issue indefinite shape. Should it  be decided that the present year is  not an opportune time to take action it is regarded as certain that  the .new building must come with  the advent of 1902.
