When'the two per cent,  tax was enacted upon the output of  the mines they gaid it would suck  the life-blood out of - mining enterprises. These predictions may- now  be set against* what really did  happen. The mines of the province  during the year 1900 iucreased their i  output just 40 per cent.- over that  of the previous year.  When   the    government's   proposal   to   increase   the   provincial  revenue   tax   from    three   to five  dollars reaches the legislature, an  amendment should be incorporated  to relieve old men  from the operation; of the tax. .If the tax was  made,to apply to all males between  the ages of eighteen and. fifty years  no exception* could be taken to it;  or'if fifty years be deemed too early  ,an age to,relieve a man" from  the  attentions of the tax gatherer, the  limit-might be set at. sixty years.  Taxation should be' arranged upon  some'basis which does not'render it  necessary .to/follow a   man-from  maturity . to' ,the* , grave.     There  should be. some deadline over'which'  the tax gatherer could not"go.'  Senator Cox of the Crow's Nest  Pass -Coal  Company, can" discount  Harry Bentley iri-telling-fairy tales.  He is now assuring the-people of  Eastern Canada that the building  of the Hill ��� railway frbrii his1 company's coal -'fields' to   the" United  S -bates '* would ' assist,1 rather   than  hamper-the smelting, and refining  industry of -British Columbia. -,He  addsthat the cars which'carry Fernie coal' to'1 United States smelters'  will -��� bring .back dry, ores for the;  treatment of tlie galena of the Slo-'  can,  so that; the diversion of the  fuel supply of the British Colum-  ,bian smelters" will  really act as a,  -benefit   to I home   smelting.

This may be .accepted as an. intimation that all efforts to make the  present alien labor act efficient and  \vorkable will be quietly throttled.  / ��� - ~ I���. '���    ������!�����������  - THB-secret of'the successful operation of the alien labor laws of the  ~ tJnited States lies in the fact that  across the border the government  solicits the co-operation of the labor  organizations' in its enforcement,  which in Canada the policy of the  government appears to be to place  every obstacle in the way of the  enforcement of the act. Last year  the United States spent $99,000 in  keeping contracted aliens out, or-in  deporting them after they got into  the country, while in Canada less  than $3000 was spent aud this almost wholly upon salaries.  Senator Cox, of the Crow's Nest  Pass Coal Company, agrees with  the members of the Phoenix'city  council that the best way to protect the fuel supply of East Koote-  jiay is by the imposition of export  duties upon coal and coke. This  goes to show that senator Cox and  his associates would very much prefer to fight the;people of British  Columbia upon a tariff issue than  upon a railway issue. They desire  to secure for James J. Hill his  railway entrance into the coal fields  fit all costs.   To remove ��� their r��U-  -School-Actris expeeted-in-the legislature today.    Briefly, the object of  the bill is to relieve the governirient  from much of its financial obligation with respect to school" maintenance, and to' transfer the same  from   the   government  to the incorporated cities of the province.  As outlined in the press dispatches  the bill proposes the division of the  cities   into   three    classes;     first,  second   and .third.    Victoria and  Vancouver   monopolize    the    first  class, while   Nelson and Rossland  figure in the second.   By the terms  of   the bill the   government proposes    to    take   over    again   the  collection       of     the      provincial  revenue      tax     which     formerly  went to Victoria aud Vancouver to  defray school expenses, and to increase the .per capita grant upon  average school attendance from $10  to $13.    In-the case of Nelson the  change,will give the city charge of  its own schools, with a per capita  grant of $15 upon average school  attendance,   while the   provincial  revenue tax will   continue   to be  collected by the government.    The  increase in the per capita will about  make up what the Nelson  school  trustees expected to receive through  the   collection   of   the    provincial  revenue tax.   Based upon the present school attendance the per capita  grant in  the case of Nelson  will  range   somewhere   between   $3750  and $4000, which when applied to  the present cost of school maintenance will leave a deficit of some* J  Halifax.���Dr. J.

Society  is asking-itself, Can it possibly last ?  Since Henry V: ascended the throne  and incontinently,.cast oft. his light  companions there has been nothing  like it.,  Edward's friends are' still  - waiting, hoping against hope, "to be  ,, summoned to, the royal presence,  .but there is no .sign 39 far,'that  J king Edward is awareT even- of the  -   existence of the booh companions  and baccarat cronies of the prince  of Wales.    Lord Marcus Beresford  is tlie only one of his old pals whom  he; has summoned; ' As   prince 'of  Wales Edward was very familiar  with Marcus, who comes of a family  that stands no nonsense even from  royalty. 'It   used" to^ be,   '.'Well,  J Marky, my boy.V   This time Marcus  was ushered in with the   utmost  state, while the king-assumed the  loftiest    possible-    manner   ;and  addressed him "formally by his<full,  title and communicated his royal  wishes,like a stage king. !  In the same fashion he freezes off  every one and extorts to the"last  drop the homage due to this position   by   court.   etiquette. -   Not  7   only court officials find liim an inexorable   taskmaster,   the household cavalry officers are bored to  death by having constantly to pro-  ���vido-escorts^fo^Hiis-goings about.-  Even the ministers are getting|"sore"  over his  interference   in   matters  which the queen never touched. He  has been having long reports direct  from general Kitchener, whom he  plied with questions about the state  of the array and the conduct of the  war.    It is suspected, that this has  been -inspired by his nephew, the  kaiser.  As tb tlie king's health, a correspondent traced the origin of the recent   alarming   report   before the-  queen's death to his throat giving ���  him   trouble.   A   consultation    of  surgeons was held,' and they pronounced him to be suffering from  "smoker's throat" in an aggravated  form, aud, in view of the family  tendency to cancer, they ordered  him to give up smoking/   The king  positively refused at first, but finally as a compromise undertook to  smoke only three cigars daily and  drop cigarettes altogether. Formerly his   quota was eight or   ten  cigars and twenty or thirty cigarettes.   It  is understood that the  doctors formally warned him that  they did not regard this as compliance with their advice and that  the present throat affliction may  possibly be converted into a malignant disease if he persists in smoking.  of the catcher's' lines, was altered  so that the catcher will have to  stand within ten feet" of the plate.  This places the catcher "up behind  the' bat" throughout a game.  A rule making the pitcher deliver  the ball to the batsman as soon as  the latter takes his position at the  plate, was adopted. Should the  pitcher deliver the ball to any other  place than the plate a ball will be  called for each delivery.  A rule was' passed which* penalized one ball against the pitcher if  he fail to deliver the ball to the  batsman within twenty seconds  after the latter has taken his position. Also 'one empowering the  umpire to remove from the ��� game,  and if need be from the grounds,  any player guilty of using improper language to another player,  captain, manager, or <��� spectator.  Written proof of'the offence must  be submitted to the president of  the league within twenty-four  hours, when he may, if the,proof  be',, satisfactory; suspend tlie" of->  fender from play.- -    *  A'batsman may not. henceforth  take his base if hit by a- pitched  ���ball, but the'-'ball will count as a  ���ball "against" the. pitcher.. Several  rules conflicting with" the changes  ���named were stricken out or changed  to conform^tqthe'alterations.   '    '-  Nelson Branch���Bums Block, 221 Baker  Street.  J. M.

The National League baseball  magnates have announced the following changes in the playing rjjles  for next season. A rule was adopted  which does away with the intentional " fouling off" of pitched balls  by a batsman. .The first and second  foul balls hit by the batsmen, unless  two strikes have already been  called against him, shall henceforth  be counted as strikes. ";���_,*���  Rule No. 3, defining the position  "A Globe;.Tfptter'a Experience. -.  "I was "the first white "man to sit,  ^ipon the dragon throne of'the, dowager empress in the imperial palace  in Pekin,", said J.;MartinMillerof  No. 138 West Eleventh .street toa  New* York World reporter recently.  Mr. Miller has,just returned from a  -trip around -the world,'and was in  Pekin when the allies arrived.  "What I saw in Pekin was butch-,  ery," he said."   ."The.French and  Russian soldiers are ,the most cruel  in the world. "They.spared neither  man, woman'nor child."  The stories  of  tlie   rivers -being clogged with  dead   bodies   were   literally   true/  After, Pekin wasTcut up "into secr  tions the natives   began - to drift  back to the English, American and  Japanese quarters,   but - they did  not enter the Rus'sian'and- French  quarters.   Even up to the time I  came   away no_ Chinese - dared to  walk on the street,without carrying  an American or a-Japanese flag.1"  "It is no secret over there that Li  Hung Chang is to be made governor  of Manchuria by. Russia.  , Russia  can then safely withdraw, knowing  that in the settlement she has a  friend among the native peace commissioners.  It was when the Amer-  icari^troops mareKe&~tfirougli_the_  impei ial palace in the Forbidden  Inner City that I, with several generals and newspaper men, found my  way into the throne room, and I  waa the first to take my. seat upon  the famous, dragon throne of China.  It is   an   ordinary   affair,   richly,  carved,   and would   make a good  hall seat for a Fifth avenue house.  "While in Ceylon I visited Kandy,  100 miles up the country, where,  many of the Boer officers are staying.   The English at Colombo think  that   the   government  treats   the  prisoners too kindly.   The officers  seem to have plenty of money and  live at the best hotels, paying in  gold.   Some of them pay $4 a day  for board, ride about on wheels and  automobiles, and dress like princes.  It is a mystery where the money  comes from.   They have to report  once a week, being out on parole.  But the privates are kept in a large  wire fence stockade and guarded by  English troops.   They are fed well  and given all the liberty that can  be   granted  them.    While I was  there a prisoner tried to escape, by  crawling under the fence.   He was  challenged three times, warned and  then   shot,   but   not   killed.    The  sentry was tried and on the testimony of the prisoners  themselves  he was judged to havo done only-  his duty."  Mr. Miller was at The Hague  when the.queen was married. And  this is his conclusion : "There is no  city jn the world as orderly-apd  decent on a great day as our own  city of New York. The Hague,  even on this great.national holiday,  was like a country village oompared  to New York on Dewey day."  Pen Sketch of Carrie,  A stepdaughter of Mrs. Nation  supports    herself   by   sewing   in  Columbus, Ohio.   She had to quit  home because her stepmother was  too tough.     She   says   her   stepmother came from a good family,  .her maiden name being Moore, and  one of her brothers-is on the bench  in Kansas City.    She eloped with  her first  husband,   Dr.   Gloyd, a  brilliant man, who   died  later of  delirium   tremens.      This   woman  says she left home because -of Mrs.  Nation's unpleasant ways and her  cruel treatment, of the other children, one of whom she beat with a  poker.because he would not' go to  church.    When asked if her father  ever whipped Mrs. Nation, she v replied:    -"My father would never  raise his hand against a .woman,  and   my stepmother" is   the   last  woman in the world to permit it.  Why, she would   have   had   her  hatchet out in energetic' work long  before it   was if-my   father had  raised his hand against her."     She  says her father was a good lawyer,  who had togive up his profession  on account of-throat trouble; that  he has been a successful editor bf-  several papers.    Of her stepmother,,  she says she is crazy rthat she was  crazy' once before on the subject of  religion,','- just went* wild "over it,  and she 'thinks" she will end' her  Bays'in a lunatic asylum.--"' ".   -'  ALL WATCH REPAIRING GUARANTEED  MAIL ORDERS RECEIVE OUR.PROMPT AND CAREFUL-ATTENTION  The Jeweler, Nelson, B.C.  *-./fAT\    - *< j'JpEy*  ��� ^_1 ^__^J C^ 'C^> - C?  ��e&rggiggga   ,    .

A number of Chinamen are clearing off about 40 acres of land at the

two or three working there, but
some of the ones driven off the

yards have moved over the river,

The city fathers have abandoned
the idea of planking the west end
of Baker street which becomes so
muddy as to inconvenience traffic

new scheme, is, tb excavate the
street from the bridge over Cottonwood creek to within a short distance of Fails street to a depth of
one foot and then grade with
crushed rock and gravel. -

Tattersall vs. McMillian.
The spring session of the county
court of Kootenay, which opened
at   tho   court   house   on Monday,
closed ' yesterday    morning.     Although there was a largo list of
cases, the greater poi tion of them
were set a&ide until the next session,   which   will   be   held    here
June 17th.    There was only   one
case considered yesterday, ifc being
tliat of P. A. Tattersall vs.  S. O.
McMillian and  the former against
Mr. Hauck, all of Slocan City.   The
plaintiff was suing for $2.30 which
was due him from defendant McMillian.   This portion of the case
lasted only a few minutes, and at
its conclusion judgment was given
in favor of the plaintiff in the full
amount *of his claims.   The other
part of theease, which was Tattersall vs. jHaiick, was quite complicated   and ^"occupied   considerable
time., Ifc appears that Hauck owed
McMillian a sufficient sum of money
to cover plaintiff's claim, and therefore    Tattersall    garnisheed    any
money of McMillian's which was in
Hauck's possession.   Hauck states
that   he  had"accepted orders for
this amount before he was served
with   the rgarnishee notice.     The
suit was brought to set aside "'these
orders and-make Hauck liable for
the   money.     The    evidence ."was
somewhat contradictory.   The case
wasadjourned until Thursday/when
it will be reconsidered in chambers,"
the 'points jof law then being argued."

Buying a Team. >.    - .
The   council   having^ decided., to
purchase a new, team for, the" fire
department, chief Lillie was Susy
.yesterday; inspecting' a number- of
horses which had been offered" at *a
fair price.   After examination he
concluded that none' of them were
what, the city required. - Several
letters from Spokane parties con-
"cerning^ the~sale~of "gobd teafios^have"
been received and it is likely that
is where the animals will be pro-1
cured.    Chief,Lillie and"probably
ono of the members  of tho committee will go to Spokane during'
the first part of next week to consider, the   oifers   that' have been
made.   It.is said that horses can
be purchased there at a lower price
than here.   The present team will
be used by the health department
in cleaning up the alleys, streets
and yards throughout the city, as
there is more work to be done than
can be handled by the two teams
at present engaged.
Two Interesting! Cases.
" It is" seldom that the small debts
court heldairNelsou is of particular
interest, but the tfvo eases that
came up before magistrate Crease
at the court' house yesterday wei e
^of^ special interest. The first.was
Thomas Egan vs. ex-constable Kerr;
in which -tlie ^plaintiff- issuing for
$ JO which^he'gave the defendant to
settle ^accounts in connection with
:McAllester'sVarrest and<trial.^ It'
appears that S. Calkin had a' claim
against Egan; and in order to settle
the mattorV'Kerr " paid/ the" debtv
without anyinstructionsffrom Egan,"
using thelatter's" money. It is the
same trouble'whicli "came to light
during KerVa ^investigation before
the police commissioners a few days
ago. The 'plaintiff.- did not-put in
an appearance fa/nd' the case' was
adjourned until next. Tuesday.
— Convict 'Emqry^wbo is. now serving six months'- at ~>the"""provincial
jail, having "been found guiltylof
stealing _fa __ suit,1, of" clothes,"- was
brought -before'-'his ' worship and
charged with obtaining a time check
to the amount oft $56 from'the Hall
Mines smelter uhder false pretence.
The prisoner waste found -guilty by
^magistrate Creaie,\~who 'reserved
judgment untiljtgday.- Those who
-testified ~ in \thei Tease were Albert
Benson, T. W. Snowden, G. A. Ger-
sell and Hugh-McDonald,'all employed at„ the smelter? .They told
hqjw the>prisoner_liad obtained the
money. " * ~* '~"_\ '""" "^*       .
The penalty attached to such a
crime is three years. It isc,a rare
ease in the history bf Nelson where'
a prisoner -who is' serving,, time is
-tried for another offence and-given-
a longer sentence, y   ~
mines, and of the kind which are a
credit to a mining center."
Mr. Ritchie also said that all of
the mines of that district were
looking well, and that the prospects
for the coming season were exceed-'
ingly bright. He leaves for his
home this morning.

Getting Ready, for Business.
The    Mansfield    Manufacturing
Company  is preparing .to do   au
immense business during the coming   summer.    The   pressed   brick
sheds hi Fairview Addition have
been rebuilt'and enlarged, the'work
being completed yesterday..   Other
improvements will be made at once,
and as soon as the weather permits
the manufacturing of bricks will be
started.   Active work is being carried on"-Hst the quarry at Kaslo, and
a. large quantity of lime is being
produced.    The  first consignment
has-already been received in Nelsou
and is meeting with a ready demand.
The lime is of a superior quality
and can be used to better advantage than that which has hitherto
been imported from Spokane and
other   places.     It   was   this   lime
which   was   used in finishing the
walls and constructing the cornices
at the new depot, and the interior
now'has an excellent appearance.
The brick and lime industry will be
carried on with activity this summer, and it is probable that the
importation -of these articles will be
greatly reduced.

Rossland Mines.
J. Fred Ritchie, a prominent mining engineer from Rossland, was in
the city* yesterday/ - In speaking of
the   rich  strike which was   made
about a week ago''oh the 300-foot
level of the Homestake group, situated to the south of the city, adjoining the Sunset group operated
by the Canadian Goldfields Syndicate, he said the" ledge was continuing in place aud that it had improved considerably since first encountered.   The, lead   is   the full
width of the drift and is well defined by walls of slate and granite.
It has now been followed for a distance of 70 feet, and the indications
aro that it will continue.   It is the
same lead which has been developed
at the 200-foot level. j
"At present," said he, ,"it is  the I
best strike without exception that
has ever   before been made in the '
Rossland   district.   It will be the '
] means of several other properties
opening up and carrying on active
development.   It will also havo its '
effect in attracting capital, of which
I expect to see, larger investments
