RATHER   THAT   IT  WAS DEWET  THAN AGUINALDO.  Rumor That Great Britain and Germany Have Gome to an Indemnity Understanding, Etc.  New York, March 31.���In  a  despatch dated London, I ���a.  iu.,  Mr.  I. N.  Ford cables   the New   York  Tribune   as   follows:     Englishmen  read with  envious feeling the despatches from Manila announcing  tlfat.Gerouinio, Capistrenoandother  insurgent leaders are   surrendering  in consequence of   the   capture of  Aguinaldo and that the collapse  of  the anti-American movement seems  imminent.    Their own Aguinaldo,  as they describe Dewet, has baffled  their determined pursuit and   the  process of hunting down Boers still  under, arms drags  along  with disappointing results.  The dispatches received last night  related mainly to the movements  of marauding bands south of the  'Orange river, in the Craddock and  Steynburg districts. Several of  these bands have returned to the  river, after being in the mountainous sections of Capa Colony for  three months. Hertzog, Kritzinger,  Scheeper and Van Reon aro the  principal leaders; and their commandos, which are in feeble force,  seem to be hunting for fording  places where they can cross. Dewet,  who was-less fortunate in his invasion' of Cape Colony,. is now beyond . the Vaal and is collecting the  scattered Boer forces in the Standerton district with a view of join-  . ing,Botha. Serious as have been  ��� the blows dealt' by French-and  ;,Babingtori,-nd.'military expert ventures-to'predict when-'th^ TVitch'  .powers of resistance will be exhausted. Yet.there is a-growing-  feeling that the British must impose rather than offer terms.   -  An Indemnity. Understanding.  The latest phase of the Chinese  question is a Berlin "rumor that the  German and British governments  have reached an understanding respecting the indemnity and guarantees for securing its payment.  This may be a deliberate effort on  the part of the German government  to divert attention from Manchuria  and expedite the evacuation of  China by" the allied troops. There  are suspicions here that the Manchurian agreement will be hung up  until tlie.indemnity is settled and  that Russia will wait until the  Japanese and European troops are  _withdrawn_before_closing^her��� bargain with the Chinese government.  Nothing is known respecting the  agreement between Germany and  England witli regard to the amount  of the indemnity.  The Memorial to Queen Victoria.'  F. C. Van Dnzer, president of the  American society, will'sail for New  York on Wednesday, to consult  with prominent Americans respecting the memorial to queen Victoria!  No decision has been reached on  tho subject of American participation in that memorial. It is hoped  that the memorial will take the  form in which some distinctive portion of the work may be exclusively  A'inerjqan. This can be done if  there-iire subordinate groups of  statuary one or more of which can  be designed by American sculptors  and paid for by popular subscription in America. The American society has not yet committed itself  to any definite plan and the artistic  scope of the memorial has not j'et  been determined in detail.  The University Races.  The university crews which were  pitted against each other on the  river this morning were more evenly matched than those of last year.  Thei Cambridge eight was inferior  to the 'crew which then set the  light blue ribbons fluttering, and  the Oxford eight were better than  the crew then doomed to. defeat.  When practice began at Putney  this year the Cambridge eight was  considered a superior crew, but Oxford seemed to gain day by day in  steadiness and form and ended by  being the favorite in .the .betting.  Cambridge was highly favored by  the choica of positions on a gusty  morning when the water was rough.  This advantage enabled the crew  to retain the lead until Barnes'  bridge was shot on the final reach.  Tt was an exciting race, which was  witnessed by thousands of spectators chilled by a drizzling rain  .���md a biting wind. , Cambridge  made a better start, was first  through Hammersmith bridge, ��� a  good length ahead at Chiswick and  something better at Barnes*. The  crew was rowing unevenly, but  there was power in its stroke and  life in the boat.  It was apparently Cambridge's  race and the light blues were shouting all the way from Putney to  Barnes, but Oxfoggfesshich had been  rowing in  smoother reac  beyond   Mortlaice   ana wni.-wr^^igapring,     Tho matter was kept a  OIL SPRINGS NEAR NELSON  A DISCOVERY MADE BY A PARTY  Or C. P. R. MEN.  Oil or Natural Gas Believed to Exist  in the Kootenay River, Not Far  From Bonnington Falls.  For some weeks past several railroad men on the C. P. R. have been  quietly investigating the sources of  what   they   believe to be  .an  oil  power  The crew  better had reserved  an audacious spurt  been rowing with a slower, stroke,  but superior steadiness and an even  keel. The men were working  together with full body swing and  tremendous leg work, and when  they quickened their stroke they  showed how much could be done by  perfect combination. Seymour  knew that his men were behind  him and could not be flurried. Spurt  was met-with spurt, but Oxford  had made a dead set for the winning  post and could not be shaken off.  The excitement was intense over  the magnificent finish. Cambridge,  after being greeted as the certain  winner, found Oxford abreast and  finally a quarter length ahead.  General Notes.  The inclement weather " has  emptied the Avest end. The most  dismal March which has been known  for many years is ending with  severe snow storms in Scotland arid  the north of England, cold fogs on  the south coast and east winds,  which convert every private house  into a hospital.  The exodus of the world of  faehion to the Riviera and Italy has  been general ��� and the society  chroniclers are as dull as the proceedings of parliament. There is  little social entertainment apart  from small dinnerparties and these  'afe-few-in-'number-and^are>brightened up'by "bridge."  ��� It-is still uncertain whether the  debutants can be presented at court  this season and matchmakers are  wondering what will become of the  girls if there be no drawing-room  and the market be overstocked  next year. A story that the king  will supplement a long series of  drawing-rooms at Buckingham  palace next-year with one at Holy-  rood palace -for Scotland and  another at Dublin castle for Ireland  lacks official confirmation.  Salisbury Improving.  London, April 1.���The following  bulletin concerning the condition of  the premier was issued last night:  " Lord Salisbury was attacked with  influenza on March 28. The illness  has run the normal course and.has  been_atteh"ded~b"y"tlle usual^rostra7  tion.    The temperature, however,  has been almost normal for the last  two days and his lordship's strength  is improved, with increasing power  of taking food. It is hoped that he  will be able shortly to get a change  to the south where he had been  contemplating going at the first  attack." ���'������  Shot Through the Heart.  New York, March 31.���The body  of Francis M. Seabriskie was found  in his bachelor apartments on West  Twenty-seventh street this afternoon. There were two wounds on  the body, one through the heart  causing death. The police put. it  down as a case of suicide. Seabriskie was 27 years old, was known  to be always. well supplied with  money and is said to have very rich  relatives.   Desperate Deserters.  Accra, Gold Coast Colony, March  31.���Three hundred men of the  British West African regiment,  who deserted at Kumasi, -marched  armed to Cape Coast' Castle, where  all business has been suspended,  owing to a fear that the deserters  will loot the town. One hundred  and twenty troops were despatched  from Accra to Cape Coast Castle today to suppress the revolt.--      '-���  Burned to Death:-. .������������-���-..-.-���  Canastota,. N. Y., Marcli 31.^"-  Last night Mrs. William Welch,  brooding over family trouble, saturated her clothing with coal oil and  applied a match to her dress.  People coming from church discovered her burned beyond almost  recognition, but still conscious.  They carried her to the house, where  she died.  uT^f secret until the other day, when it  was decided to send a gentleman  learned in such things to the scene  of the discovery.   This gentleman  reports that the source of the oil  may   be   traced to the rails   and  sleepers   of   the   road, which are  always more or less saturated with  grease.   His theory is that the oil  oozes down to the water, level, and  that where the water comes in contact with the oil it carries it off on  its.snrface.   At the particular point  where   the   railway    men    noted  a constant   appearance   of   oil'on  the waters, this condition prevails  ���the rails run close to the edge of  the stream.    It is no" breach of confidence now to say that their attention was first attracted by the  varied-colored hues in the eddies  some yards west of what is ' known  in railroad geography as bridge 41,  near      Bonnington'    falls.       The  phenomenon   was watched closely  for   several   weeks and the closer  the inspection the" more convinced  became the locators that there was  "something in it."   Many of those  in  the secret- still -hold that there  must be a natural oil spring in the  immediate vicinity or a section of  natural   gas.     However,   the professional     man      who-     reported  on. the   find   declares   that   the  geological';-1���formation- ---in-' the-  neighborhood-is< ilot' such"-as  to  encourage   the   hope   that "either  oil or gas can be stored there.' How,  then, does it happen that the waters  at this particular point are covered  with oily or gaseous matter ?   That  is .a question which the railway men  arc asking  one another, and they  are   now putting the   "poser" to  their numerous friends.   It is hard  to suppose that waste grease f roih  the fire-boxes or oil from the engine  would be sufficient to support this  peculiar appearance on the water  all the year round.    In the heat of  summer it might have something  to do with it, but in winter, when  tye roadbed is frozen or covered  with show, it might be  supposed  that no small flow of the lubricant  would suffice to produce the effect.  The subject is still receiving atten-  tion,-and-there-is-at-least-the-po3si-  bility thatf uture developments may  prove the discovery to be of some  value.    Natural gas or an oil spring  in the immediate vicinity of\Nelson  would be an agreeable find.  the Patterson child slipped and fell  o\er the cliff. The mother sprang  forward,to save the child and also  fell over the rock, both screaming  in turn as they -fell.*'' Nellie Chase  became greatly excited, as she saw  her friends go oter and she too fell  aftor them. Table Rock is 200 feet  above tide water and the side of  the mountain under it is very steep.  Mrs. Patterson was'killed and her  daughter was-badly bruised. Nellie  Chase was caught in the branches of  a large tree'and was-uninjured.  -To Continue Strike.  ' Marseilles, April 1.���At strike  meetings held last evening and  attended byabout'3000 laborers and  coal hetyversj it was {decided to continue the strike until the .masters  concede an'eight hour day. ,, At* a  later-meeting some 400, dock foremen who had. been at work decided  to refuse to continue to work witli  the improvised dock hands until  the demands of' the strikers were  conceded. This will paralyze dock  work, as inexperienced laborers  cannot work without foremen. The  strikers' union, has promised to  support foremen against, any consequences of their action when work  is resumed.  COLONEL TOPPING IN TOWN  ONE OF THE EARLY PIONEERS OF  NELSON.

Tomorrow he will reach the  age of 120 years. He sleeps almost  continuously and almost daily his  waking periods are growing shorter.  : Fell Over a Cliff.  PpiJGHKEEPSiE, N. Y., March 31*  ���^Between five and six o'clock this  aftornoon Mrs. Daniel Patterson,  wife of a mechanic, her twelve year  old daughter and Nellie Chase, aged  fourteen, all living in Cold Spring,  went, out for a walk. They stopped  on Table Rock, half way up Breakneck mountain, to watch thj forest  fires burning on Crow'i Nest  mountain across the river. Suddenly  TO MAKE COAL CONTRACTS  Legislative and Victoria Notes.  Victoria, March 31.���[Special to  -The Tribune.]���The Crow's Nest  Southern railway people say that  Elias Rogers of Toronto, managing  director of the Crow's Nest Coal  Co., is on his.'.way to-'this province  and that he. has' full authority to  make contracts with local smelters  for future, coke and coal deliveries.  This may be jtrue, but it is well  known that���none of the smelters in  British'Columbia have so far been  able to get any satisfaction out of  the representatives of the company  now in the' province.        . -  The government has consented to  allow^bpth .tji.e ijoustq^ jcajl^Hy and  Helmcken refinery i^sbliftibftsPtoTbe  discussed, as neither could be without the consent of the government,  for the adoption of-either-would  mean the expenditure of r-revenue.  .

Hotel~Burned;  New York, March 31.���The Hend-  rick-Hudson hotel at Parkhill, near  Yonkers, was burned early today.  The building was to have been  ready for occupation on May 1st  and part of the furnishings had  been put in. The cost of the structure and furnishings was $150,000,  and the building was so thoroughly  damaged that the walls had to be  pulled down. There is said to be  ample insurance to cover loss.  Boers Captured,  London, April 1.���The war office  has received advices" from lord  Kitchener dated Pretoria, March 30,  reporting the capture of 72 Boers  iu Orange River Colony and officially announcing that general French  has taken 51 prisoners and received  the surrender of 03 Roers as already  announced in press despatches.

IIknniks, New Hampshire, March  31.���Christopher Columbus Gibson,  the celebrated musician' and com- |  poser, died at his home here   today |  from an attack of apoplexy,-  Col. Topping is paying Nelson  visit, and his old frionds  here are  complimenting him on  his  robust  health.   There are not many in the  city   now   who- knew the colonel  when he was  one of the pioneer  storekeepers, but nearly everyone  has heard of his connection with the  Le Roi in the Rossland camp.   The  story,.' however,_ is    not  always  . correctly told.    It was while store-  keepinghere that Joe Bourgois and  Joe Morrice, two,French-Canadians,  approached the colonel with some  samples of ore from  what is now  known    as    the   Rossland   camp.  These men had  staked the Idaho.  Virginia,. War Eagle  and Centre  Star���all well-known mines today,  but   their   samples   only   assayed  $10       to        the       ton..       They  told     the ' colonel;    that     there  were immense bodies of such  rock,  and he advised that the properties  were worth holding on to under  the circumstances.   They suggested  that if he would pay for the recording of these they would give him  another claim on which they had  only placed one stake.   They called  this one the Louise.   The colonel  rode over to Rossland on  his old  mule, making the journey in one  day, and as he was satisfied with  the appearance of-the- ground , he  complied with tbe termslaiddpwn,  but changed the name of hi^claim;  from Louise to;'Le -Roi -in^'conapli1;-  ment to the locators.1'' On,-thejnow-'  famous.

Colonel Topping only made $11,000  out of the. transaction, but he does  not regret his bai'gain,  as he says  no other men would have stuck to  it as did those  who had  the first  struggle.  , Colonel Topping has made and  lost money in mining, but he is still  hopeful of working up a. big pile.  One of hisniihing deals he narrates  with great gusto. In 1893 he  purchased a third interest in the  Gertrude, a Rossland property, and  soon after sold out to a Spokane  man,       receiving       in     payment  coast will be controlled by one big  corporation.    The principal shareholders iu the syndicate said to be  closed  include twelve well-known  New York  financiers, J. Pierpont  Morgan, August Belmont, W.

Negotiations have also been  commenced  with  the Alaska  Packers' Association for an option on its plants,  but nothing definite has been accomplished.   Among the companies  to be- absorbed by the deal going  through will be the Pacific-American Fisheries Company,  of whicli  John  Cudahy. of Chicago is president, and the Pacific Steam Whaling   Company,   of   which   senator  George,C. Perkins of California is  the head.  A Desperate Italian.  New York, March 31.��� S. Paglia,  an Italian stonemason, tonight shot  his landlord, Frank Materezzo, the  latter's wife and daughter, and then  shot himself. Paglia desired > to  marry Carmela Materezzo,' who :is  only fourteen years of age. Tonight  he asked the father to let the ceremony be performed at once, but  was told that he'could not wed the  girl for two -years, she being 'too  , young. Becoming enraged, the  lover drew a revolver and the first  shot hit the girl in the thigh. He  shot the mother in-the breast aud  slightly wounded the father and  then Paglia shot himself in the arm  and hand.   He. was arrested.    .

About the same time  seismic instruments showed signs  of disturbance in Rome, Padua,  Florence and Catania.  $55Tn cash, a gold watch, three gal  Ions of whisky, a sewing machine,  anda couple of thousand cigars,  which he named Gertrude stinkers.  "They were the vilest weeds a mau  ever smoked," said the colonel last  night to a Trihune reporter.  "They were brought over the line  by a prospector, and having tried  one, that gave me enough. Shortly  afterwards senator Turner came up  to the store and asked if I had any  imported cigars. I promptly replied that I had and produced the  Gertrude stinkers. I charged him  two-bits each, and as soon as he  took a couple ot whiffs.jho looked at  me and wanted to know where ^the  devil I imported the cigars from.  From Marcus, I replied. Of course,  I afterwards gavo^him a good  cigor, but I wanted to hear  his opinion on a Gertrude stinker."  The Gertrude mine has since  changed hands frequently, on one  occasion as much as $30,000 being  the consideration.  Colonel Topping is jubilant over  the fact that Trail is to be incorporated. At present the town contributes to the provincial treasury  about $S000 a year aiid receives in  return about $1300. This stato of  affairs the people naturally object  to. Tho bill of incorporation lias  passed its second reading and committee stages and little remains now  to be done to make tlio place a full-  fledged city.

The Berlin correspondent'of the  Times declared with emphasis that  no article of the agreement applies .  to Manchuria and adds with brutn I  candor that Germany "stands  ti>'  win iu the China game,"-having obtained advantages in the Yang Tse  valley without taking any risks in  northern   China.     Evidently   lord-  Salisbury, in his anxiety to avoid  putting  his "money  on  the wrong  horse,  has neglected to back   any  horse at all.   He; agreed with Germany that Russia could not be resisted   in   Manchuria   and   misled  JaputLby-publishing-the text of-thn���  diplomatic agreement, which meant  nothing as far as northern China  was concerned.    Lord  Salisbury  is  now trying to support Japan  and  casting about for a strong American  lead, but in reality he has no policy  in China and is hopelessly drifting.  The     Times    correspondent    in  Pekin has a clear view of British  interests and the tendencies of tho  Russian intrigues, but he  is  not  a  foreign   secretary   and cannot always control  the opinion of   the  leader writer of that powerful journal.    Ho has brought into prominence the insistence  of   the   Yang  Tse   viceroys   to    tho    Manchuria,  agreement aud enforced the obligation of supporting the group of rcn I  reformers who saved the situation  last   year.

The American government might accomplish  much by opportune intervention.  It is plain that the Anglo-American  agreement   offers   no   obstacle  in  Russian    ambition     in     northern  China.  Anti-Clerical  Demonstrations.

So far the "active operations" of  the V., V. <fc E. railway are confined  to the lobby of the provincial legislature.  The present editor of the Miner  is not the flrst hireling of the Mine  Owners' Association who has pursued a course of slander under the  pretence of criticism.  Whkn governments impose conditions upon' : railway subsidies  -which are fatal to the greed of railway promoters, they do not fall  very far short in their duty to  the  people who must provide the aforesaid subsidy.  J. Roderick Robertson and  James Wilks have issued manifestoes giving their views upon the  smelting and railway problems of  Kootenay. There can now be no  further excuse for uncertainty or  delay on the part of the lawmakers  at either Ottawa or Victoria.  Custom makes law. The Minor  of yesterday contained a mado-to-  order editorial, some misfit paragraphs, and several hand-me-down  extracts from the Miner of Rossland,  to bolster up its contention that it  is right, and the people of Nelson  ��� are wrong, in their estimate of the  worth of John Houston.  The advantages of   having the  ' proposed -railway,   from   the   East  . Kootenay coal fields to the   international boundary line, built   as   a  ' government work, are dwelt upon  by James Bannerman in Saturday's  isBue of the Industrial World.    Mr.  Bannerman's   communication    appears in another column,  The newspapers that are supporting the Toronto philanthropists  ��� and James J. Hill in their efforts to  perfect their corner on the coal  measures of East Kootenay, are  making a great deal of a telegram  ,.5vhich Robert Jaffray has received  '-"from a man in Boston, to the effect  that he will build a smelter iu East  JJootenay if the people of Canada  will vest control of the coal in Mi-.  Hill and his associates. Even at the  bes c this seems a small pi-ice for so  g-eat a concession. British Columbia has other smelters which  were secured without any such  sacrifice, and if proper safeguards  are thrown around its fuel supply  it is reasonable to assume that  other smelters will be built. But  small as the pi'ica is, there is no assurance that even it will be paid.  British Columbia may vote to let  Hill have tlie coal and then find  it has no greater hold upon tho  Boston man's smelter than Riley  has on the mint.  The views of the Drewries, upon  the railway and smelter problems,  are presented in three columns of  the Miner's Sunday edition, and any  doubt which may have existed, as  to the agreement of the Drewries  upon these questions, is now cleared  up. ft can now be stated authoritatively that W. S. Drewry, the  surveyor, agrees with his Brother,  J. C. Drewry, the East Kootenay  mining operator, that what the  country needs more than anything  else is the fostering care of James  J. Hill. In fact they force the conviction upon their readers that Mr.  Hill fills a long felt want.  TriK vote upon the Houston resolution, which declares for the construction of the Crow's Nest  Southern as a government work,  should such construction be deemed  necessary, will determine the sincerity of many avowed champions of  government ownership bf railways.  If they hesitate to apply their  principle in the construction of a  railway which has a good prospect  of paying they need expect little  co-operation in more risky railway  ventures.        ���'   The lawyers of Victoria have  lost their fight-agaihst the $25 tax,  which the city of Victoria imposed  under the provisions of the .Municipal Clauses Act. " The case  came before Mr. justice Walkem,  .who, although obliged to uphold  the tax, took occasion in his private  capacity to express the opinion that  the tax was a vindictive one.'  Now that the country has the  assurance of the secretary of the  provincial board of health, that  there is no danger of a spread of  smallpox through the mining sections, the merchants of Nelson  would like some assurance that  accounts against the government,  in connection with the outbreak of  a year ago, will be settled.  Easter Millinery Openings.  Tomorrow morning the millinery  exhibit   at   Fred Irvine   & ' Co.'s  opens, and for three days  admirers  of   really    beautiful   and   artistic  things   in this lino   will have an  opportunity of witnessing a display  =whieh-cannot=be=beaten=anywhere=  in the province.   Mr.  Will Irving  has just returned from the eastern  markets, and the orders he placed  while there are now being unpacked.  When it is stated that among his  selections are some of the choicest  things which Allman Bros., Madame  Louise,   Sullivan & Drew, Jas. R.  Johnson,    and   other   New   York  houses  of J world-wide fame could  offer, a foretaste may be had of the  grand things upon which appreciative eyes may feast.   The goods  being     placed     in     position     include     not     only       the      latest  things     in-    millinery     but    also  in Parisian costumes, mantles,  silk  waists,   dress    goods   and   foreign  fabrics.    Buying for cash, the  firm  announce that they are in   a   position to compete with eastern houses  in the matter of price,   and   claim  that the quality and variety is such  as to meet the tastes   of the   most  fastidious.  There will also be an Easter millinery opening at Mrs. McLaughlin's millinery parlors, Baker street,  adjoining the Broken hill block. To  this the ladies of Nelaon are cordially invited. Mrs. McLaughlin  undertakes to exceed iu point of  excellence any similar display of  the class under her auspices. Her  buyers are just back from the markets with the latest and best. The  opening lasts three days, beginning  tomorrow morning.  Mrs. Enfield, Opera House block,  also announces a millinery opening,  commencing tomorrow. She promises an agreeable surprise for all  patrons visiting her millinery parlors.  Friza Winners.  A splendid photograph of the  Nelson curlers, winners of the  Oliver, Hudson's Bay, aud Spring  cups at the recent bonspiel at Rossland, is on view in the window of  Neelaud's shoe store, and at the  other side, McLean's drug store, is  a picture of the Nelson hockey  team, who enjoy the proud distinction of being the champions of  British Columbia. The pictures are  by Wadds Bros., 11x17 inches, and  are the admiration of all who see  them.

On Saturday E. C. Wragge, lato  of the legal firm of Bowes <fc  Wragge, returned to Nelson from  the seat of war in South Africa.  Mr. Wragge was with the Strathcona Horse, and saw some very  lively service, but was fortunate  enough tp escape the Boer bullets.  He had a spell of the enteric, however, which for a time kept him on  the sick list.

Reserve Fund,  Hon. Qeo. A. Cox,  President.  Coal   Traffic Alone Would Pay Five  Per Cent Upon Cost of Crow's  Nest Southern Construction.  Industrial World.  Much has been said recently upon  the advisability of granting a  charter for a road from Fernie to  the Boundary. Many contend that  to do so would mean the putting of  bur smelting interests at the mercy  oE the large trusts. Those who are  in favor of granting the charter  say that until the people as represented by their government undertake to build railways, charters  should be granted to all companies  willing to build without bonus. To  ���prevent any combination against  VBritish Columbia smelters steps  should be taken to prevent export  of coal and coke until all British  Columbia orders are filled.  There is another party (and it is  a growing one) that says that, all  charters should be refused and that  the government step in and ��� build  ihe railways for the people. They  sny (and with reason) that the  people" of Canada by bonuses and  guarantees have built the roads and  that the promoters own them,  while they, the people, have to pay  freights large enough to pay, expenses and interest. on their own  money. I believe that nowhere in  Canada is there a better oppor-'  tun ity presented for a government  building and owning a railway  than we have here today.  Tlie Crow's Nest Coal Company  say that by the time a railway is  completed from Fernie" to the  boundary line they will be able to  deliver coal to that line at the rate  of .0000 tons per day, besides filling  all demands made on them from the  home market. James J. Hill on the  other hand agrees to find a market  for that quantity. Now a i-ailway  from Fernie to the boundary, say  100 miles, can be built equal to the  Columbia & Western extension for  $3,000,000. That is a high standard  to aim at, but none toOhigh for a  road carrying such traffic.  The output of coal at (5000 tons  =pet=day=w.ill^amount^to=,l,800,000^  tons a year of 300 working days.  t)n this our government has a royalty of ten cents per ton, equal to  $180,000 per annum. The' government can issue $3,000,000 30-year  bonds at four per cent. For this  they should get par. It will take,  $120,000 to pay interest, leaving  still $00,000 of the royalty. Put  $00,000 per annum into a sinking  fund at four per bent will in thirty  years retire the $3,000,000 in bonds  and leave $200,000 besides to pay  for looking after the sinking fund.  The road when completed can be  leased to Mr. Hill for a term of  years. For such a lease he should  pay $150,000 per annum, or five per  cent on the outlay. No doubt he  could be induced to sign an agreement to that effect, besides building the .necessary connections from  the boundary line to Kalispell, or  to some other point on his main  line. ,  Nowhere in Canada is there such  an opening. Here we have 0000  tons per day promised when the  road is completed. That means 300  cars of 20 tons each, or twenty  trains of fifteen cars each per day.  Where is there a railway iu Canada  ^ ith such tonnage ? Why we think  it a big'thing when sixty cars  arrive in Nelson in a day ; and it is  a big thing. But fancy five times  that many!  With a road built and owned by  the people - we can laugh at any  American combination to shut up  our smelters for the lack of coke.  James Bannerman.  Locked Up as a Stowaway.  Honolulu, March 81.���Ito Take-  jh'o, a Japanese merchant of this  (jjlace, is the cause today of a clash J  SAVINGS BANK DEPARTMENT:  Interest allowed on deposits.   Present rate  throo percent.- .  GRANGE V. HOLT,  Manager Nolson Branch.  between the territorial and federal  authorities. On the last trip of the  steamer America Maru from the  Orient in February, Ito Takejiro  boarded the. vessel at Yokohama  without securing passports or a  ticket. He tendered his fare to  Honolulu, but, according to his  statements, the ship's officers refused to accept it, but placed him iti  confinement with 11 others as a  stowaway. He was taken to San  Francisco and brought back here  on the returno trip, the intention  being to return him to Japan. His  brother secured a writ of habeas  corpus from the district court and  the Japanese was taken ashore. As  soon as the collector of the port,  Mr. Stackable, learned of the matter  he had the ship stopped, but  she was finally permitted to depart.  When the case cornea up for hearing it is expected that the jurisdiction of the territorial officials  over ships of foreign bottoms will  -be raised. -  Fleeing Burglar Killed bv Officer.  Chicago, March 30.���After being  wounded in a previous attempt at  burglary a few hours before, Cornelius Doherty, one of the four who  attempted to break into the Newbury, on East Ontario street, met a  ;tragic death last night while running away from watchman Frank  Kelly, who shot him in the left  temple and left thigh. Kelly had  driven away three men earlier in  the evening," discovering them as  they were climbing the fire escape.

Mrs. Goodrow and five children  camped themselves in the mayor's  oflico on Saturday and held the fort  all the forenoon. Mrs. Goodrow ox-  plained that her husband was  undergoing a terra of imprisonment  in the provincial jail, and in the  absence of tho breadwinner the  staff of life was scarce in the household. Her list of wants was a  lengthy one, including one for a  stout rope or hawser. She explained  to city clerk Strachan that the  hawser was required to moor her  barge at Crawford Bay, and safely  secured she could take in washing  .aiid thus support her family. It  transpired, however, - that captain  West had volunteered to tow the  barge down to Nelson wliere it was  proposed to tie ifc up at the city  wharf and utilize it as a floating  laundry. To this" proceeding the city 'authorities natur:  ally objected, preferring that the  lady and her family should remain  with the good people of Crawford  bay pending the release of her husband, some three months hence.  Under these circumstances, gold  commissioner Turner was appealed  to and he very generously gave an  order for'$5 - worth - of provisions  and undertook to supply the - rope,  provided it was used to moor the  barge at Crawford bay. He was  not , anxious that it should be  brought down to Nelson, realizing  that if the laundry business did.not  prove a success the lady and her  family would become a burden on  the citizeris^of Nelson. Mrs. Good-  row undertook to comply with the  terms suggested-arid to retire to the  barge at its-present moorings. The  heads of the (3'oodrow family have  beencin. trouble with" the police "on  more' than one occasion since their  advent in this part of the country.  One of their favorite enterprises  was to sell liquor without a license.  A New Industry.'  city   council,   at   tonight's  *The  meeting, will be recommended by  the board of works to extend every  encouragement to the parties" negotiating for certain privileges in  return for which they undertake to  build, equip, and operate a flour mill  in Nelson. ''The board of works are  in favor of leasing a suitable site  for the mill and giving the principals the waste water from the electric power house. It is proposed  by the promoters" of the scheme to  have'therailwayspurj-which���now'-  runs to the gasworks, extended  west to the millsite. Thus by cheap  power and, ample facilities for  handling grain, they undertake to  supply the community withflourat  a lower figure than that which now  prevails.  The Wardenship of the Jail.  R. E. Lemon^r enters upon his  duties as warden' of the provincial  jail at Nelson today, vice captain  Napoleon Fitzstubbs, superannuated. Ori Saturday gold commissioner Turner, on the part of the  government, formally took over  the jail from captain Fitzstubbs,  having inspected the books, etc.,  and found^everything satisfactory.'  This morning he will officially install Mr. Lemon as warden. Captain Fitzstubbs has been many  years in .the service of the province, being a well known figure  up in Cariboo during the gold excitement in that part of the province. His successor in office is also  an old-timer, and carried on an extensive mercantile business in-- this  district when Nelson.as a city was  in the embryo state.      ..._  PERSONAL.
