Pekin, February 6.���The foreign  ministers this morning gave out for  publication a secret imperial edict  handed to them yesterday by the  Chinese. peace plenipotentiaries  which pleads especially for the' life  of Thung-Fu Siang, commander-in-  chief of the army. It says the only  reason is on account of the turbulent  population of the province o'f Shen  Si and Kan Fu, who are devoted to  him and might rise and commit acts  of violence against the missionaries  and the Christians which the court  would greatly deplore, consequently  his punishment requires caution, de-,  liberation and careful consideration.  The emperor, it is pointed out, even  in the punishment of princes of the  blood, has not been moved "by  motives for their protection. Why  then should he do so in the case of  Tung Fu Siang? What already  had been done should be taken into  consideration. _ His army had been  reduced to 5000 men, with the object of lessening his power and  with the ultimate object of his  future punishment,-whieh will be  promulgated in an edict, the  language of which will not be too  patent. After the deprivation of  his official rank the emperor will  hereafter decide on a heavy punishment. The ministers will meet  again this morning.  ,  Lured Across the Line."

The stuff is put up in parcels'like  gum, and labelled "Gumbacco," and  is advertised as a combination of  the finest tobacco and chewing gum.  The confection makes a double appeal to the boy nature, being sweet  to the taste at first, like gum, and  by i-eason of Yboyhopd'sY'perverse  misconception of the "manliness" of  chewing tobacco.' Lester ^bdihe,  superintendent of compulsory education, who brought the matter to  the attention of the press, is of the  opinion that the tobacco,; manufacturer has deliberatelyY set but hot  merely to market a product of itself  profitable, but also to debauch the  health of the young in the interest  of future profits on tobacco.

McLean of Toronto,  and the corporation faction, led'by  Mr.' Borden of Halifax.   There is  . little doubt but that the McLean  forces are the strongest, in point.of  ' numbers, but the corporation men.  are putting up a good fight. Aside  from these factions there are a large  . number of Conservatives who, for  ���--the-party-s sake,-would_like_to_see_  something in the way of a compromise arrived at with respect to the  leadership, which would remove all  possibility of dissension. Not being  able to make any progress, the caucus adjourned to meet again last  evening when it was to be decided  ' whether the nominee of the caucus  should be recognized as the leader  of the entire party or simply as  leader of the party in the house of  commons, with possibly another  leader for the party in the senate.  The news which comes from the  East to the effect that the federal  government contemplates the purchase of the telegraph systems of  the Dominion is almost too good to  ' be true.    Such a reform would be  . welcomed from one end of Canada  - to the other, and would be in line  ' with the improved means of com-  'munication    which    the     present  'government has inaugurated in the  postal system.   Government ownership of the telegraph service is no  new idea.    It is a service which can  only flourish under a comparative  monopoly-and the tendency of the  times is toward the administration  of all monopolistic services by the  state.    In Great Britain the telegraph lines are owned and operated  .by the state in connection with the  postal' service,   and   with   highly  satisfactory, results both from :the  standpoint of efficiency and economy.   There is no reason to' suppose that equally satisfactory re*-  suits could not be secured in Canada.  -The-Dominion has the credit -necessary to put.such a^.deal ^throughy  and its people-stand ready to, applaud' and . support the, _ statesman  who .is sufficiently progressive to  carry-such a programme through to  completion.'  THE.yerdict,-,of > the Victoria jury  in the-case  of Williams vs. the B.  A.  C. of   Rossland will commend  itself to most - people.   When the  .representatives of the B. A. C. were  dickering  for the purchase of the  Le Roi mine an agreement was arrived at with the majority shareholders of .the  Le Roi company to  sell their   stock   at $6 per share.  This price was satisfactory to the  majority-of��� the^shareholders,_but_  it was not satisfactory to the minority shareholders led by senator  Turner.   They were not afraid of  losing   a   sale   and  declined   the  price   offered.    In    the   end,   to  perfect   their title,   the B. A. C.  was forced to.pay.them $7.25 per  share.     Had j the. majority shareholders displayed the same nerve  they wouldhave received $507,714.57  more for their shares than they did.  They sought, however, to recover  the sum through the courts alleging  an agreement with the B. A. C. to  pay the majority shareholders the  same rate per share as they would  pay the  minority.     In this  they  failed.   It ie considered likely that  the case will be carried to the privy  council before a , final settlement is  reached.    GOAL MEN CONFER.  sMr. YsHilLihas nbtWbought^-the^jm-  mense coal deposit of the Canadian  fNorfchwest, -but.has for certain concessions granted to him" to run-his  line to the coal fields, agreed to use  on his road and to provide transportation for a certain amount of  coal from the mines annually.  Mr. Rogers refused to talk for  publication, but the . above - statement of the deal, whicli involves a  large amount of money, was obtained from a source which leaves  no 'doubt as to its correctness.  While in St. Paul.the Canadian capitalists had several conferences  with Mr. Herman Trott of this city,  which has led to the belief that certain St.*Paul capital will be invested in the Crow's Nest coal-fields.  The Canadians leave for the -east  on the Chicago Great Western this  evening.  It was stated authoritatively that  the papers of agreement between  Mr. Hill and the Canadians were  signed last night.  KOOTENAY....

Businesa Transacted Yesterday. ~
The supreme ."court' of* British
Columbia opened bef ore* Mr. justice
Irving of Victoria at 11 o'clock yesterday morning at the court house.
Sheriff Tuck and clerk Simpkins
had everything in readiness -and
there was no- delay in" proceeding
with the Jong list of cases that is
before the court. ' There was a
large number' of spectators, but the
' majority, of those -present. were
' directly.,, connected - with > one \ or
other of the various.cases. fOnly a
short,, forenoon' , session,- in which
several'cases wertf disposed "of,1 was'
held, as there were no cases ready
to be heard in the afternoon. There
weve a large number of ^members of
the 'Jbar.,'present, "both?local and
from outside.points.
The first case that was considered
.was Osier, vs. Moore. -W.--A. Macdonald* asked for an order in which
a commission could, be appointed to
take .the evidence of Hugh, Sutherland, who „is one of the principal
witnesses in the case, and .who is
residing^in Toronto at the present
time'.* •' The order was granted. The
case was then adjourned- until nest
court, but the plaintiff was required
to pay the costs in connection with
the .present court.' The -'case is one
in which the plaintiff is suing for
_ther.commission_on_the_sale_of_the
' California group on Toad mountain.
By - special agreement between
the solicitors of the plaintiff and
defendant in the case of Fawcett
vs. C. P. R., in which the plaintiff is
suing for damages owing to the
death of the late Mr. Fawcett
caused by. an accident on the C. P.
R. at Robson, the case was adjourned', until 10;30 " o'clock ■jnexb
Monday morning.
The case of McMillian vs. Sandi-
land was adjourned until next
court. This was due to the notice
of the trial not being served on Leo
Peel, who is one of the parties interested iu the suit. At present
Mr. Peel is residing in the southern
portion of America. The plaintiff
was authorized to pay the costs in
connection with the present court.
The case is a. complicated one in
which many parties are involved.
Thecontest is. principally over the
winding' up of Crawford's estate,
and which the plaintiff asserts is
being wasted.
The last case to be considered
duriug the session was Brackman &
Ker vs. Oppenheimer. The case was
adjourned until today and will be
the first one dealt with this morning. iY'.'-In this case it is alleged that
the defendant failed to carry out a
contract in which he was to have
supplied the plaintiffs with "67 cars
of hay. ' The case 'will be heard
with a special jury of eight men,
Those who have.been summoned to
act in that capacity are : N. T. MeLeod, G. F. Beer, Albert B. Gray,

•Lardo Limestone.
'' Good reports are being received
.concerning the limestone quarry at
Lardo, from which the Nelson and
Trail smelters receive their limestone supply for fluxing purposes.
Nearly 40 men are engaged at the
property and are running two
shifts'a day. The work is so managed that over 150 tons of the rock
is removed and placed on the dump
ready for shipment each day. The
quality of the rock is excellent for
the purpose in which it is used. It
also gives returns of about $2 per
ton in. gold values. The mass of
rock is unlimited and if work is continued it will supply the smelters
for years to come. Regular shipments are being made.
Kaslo's Chance for a Smelter.
G. O. Buchanan of Kaslo arrived
in the city last evening, and when
asked concerning the proposition of
erecting a smelter at that town he
said-that the mining men were taking a strong interest in the propo-
sition and it was sure to go. Mr.
Jeffery of Kaslo, who left for Montreal a week or so ago, is doing all
he can to float the company in the
east. Representatives of the Kaslo
portion of the" 'company' will leave
next week for St. Paul, where they
expect to interview president Hill
of the Great Northern concerning
transportation and rates for shipment of ores. The directors of the
company intend losing no time, and
are hurrying the _ preliminary
arrangements so that work can bev
commenced at tho earliest date

IMPROVED   MAIL  SERVICE
Bonded Mail to Come Direct.
The inconvenience and unnecessary delay in receiving bonded mail
matter from Great Britain which
has been experienced in Nelson and
other Kootenay points for many
years past, it having to go to New
Westminster for examination before it is sent here, is to be rectified at once. Such mail matter will
then come direct to Nelson and
without even x a day's delay. By
the present method these bonded
goods are delayed for days, and
even 'weeks.
iThe credit of the change is probably duetto the'Nelson board of
trade. At their annual meeting
held in'January the following resolution was passed: \
"That this'board desires to call
the attention of the commissioner
of customs to the inconvenience
and unnecessary delay occasioned
by the ^present method of distributing 'bonded mail matter from
Great Britain addressed to Kootenay points, through the present
method of sending all parcels to
the Pacific coast for distribution,
and to urge upon him the necessity
of taking immediate steps to remedy the matter by having the distribution made at Nelsou for all
Kootenay points, or, as an alternative at Winnipeg."
A* copy of the resolution was forwarded- to the commissioner of customs, John McDougall, at Ottawa,
and, he -was' asked if -he would
attend to-the-matter. Mr. Swannell, secretary,of the local board of
trade, received .a favorable reply
yesterday morning. In the letter
it wgs stated, .that "under the arrangements between the customs,
arid ■' postoffice'- departments,    per.
' memo No. 1027- B., enclosed, it is
provided-that reyeiy package afriv-
ing^-by.-maiL'atfany postoffice in'
.Canada from'any, place outside.' of
Canada'shall be,sent by, mail,'with'
' manifest','', to .."the collector o_\cus--
toms at;the.pbrt,of entry (or'.oiiit-,
port) at or nearest to the., place'tp
_which it is'"direeted,- for,; examination as to/:the_>liability^of' its "con-
ten ts"to customs,duty.' "% ,*-"•-**■""- Y *.
The .letter goes on to say. that the'
matter to which, attention is called
appears to be one to -be-dealt with
by tha postoffice'.department, in
view- of the .^existing regulations.
The resolution has been accordingly
-transferred ,_to;fthat' ^department,
there being no objection? from the
customs if - arrangements be.. made
by the postoffice authorities; for'
forwarding dutiable 'postal packages'from Great-Britain to Nelson
and other customs offices in Koote-'
nay -district, direct without being
first sent through to 'the Pacific
coast. ''-**" tl- * i \7. •) _,
This means that as^soon  as * ar-
- rangements can - be made the
bonded mail matter will be sent direct to Nelson and will'be examined
here by the local.custom officers instead of being sent'cto New Westminster for examination. The matter is now being considered by^ the
post office department _and ifc is
quite probable that the new method
will be adopted at once.' Mi*. Swannell expects to receive^farther-ad^
vice concerning the matter in a day
or two. -According to the regulations Nelson should have received
the bonded _aail>„matter._ direct
from the very-.time the custom
house'was first established here, .
