 SS3r��!Si*^f"TT*^��ig  DAILY EDITION   BY MAIL  F/VE DOLLARS A YEAR  WEEKLY EDITION BY MAIL  TWO DOLLARS A YEAR  NINTH YEAR  THE TRIBUNE: NELSON, B. C, SATURDAY, MARCH 30, 1901  PRICE FIVE CENTS  NELSON WHOLESALE TRADE  BUSINESS QUIET BUT PEOSPEOTS  ABE BRIGHT.  Retailers   Holding   Back Pending  Improvement in the Situation.  Collections Good.  an  An    improvement    in    business  generally is reported by the wholesale houses of Nelson.   The seascon  is   somewhat  late in  opening  up,  and the unsettled condition of tlie  .   mining industry has much to do in  making  retailers  over-cautious   in  placing orders.    However, a great  i  deal   of   business   lias   beeu   done  during the week  and houses which  have their  representatives on  the  road  report favorably.    Travelers  are starting out next week to fully  cover the ground so that a stir may  be looked for.   Money is easier than  ifc has been for months past and  collections are' good.    Throughout  Slocan-district not much  is being  done, although    some   respectable  consignments have beeu made to  Sandon,  Slocan  and  other points.  It is  expected that several  other  mines will follow the example of the  Slocan Star and open up again full-  handed.     Development work proceeds satisfactorily on most of the  older mines so that when the order  is given to take out ore all  will be  in readiness for a busy time.   The  prospects   of   having    a    refinery  established in the Kootenays seem  to encourage   business   and   merchants generally are taking a more  hopeful view of the situation.  "~-The  Nelson   Wire aud Mattress  Company had respectable shipments  to Greenwood, Trail and Revelstoke  during the week and are looking for  a busy season.   They speak well of  the.Boundary trade.  The Nelson Saw & Planing Mill  Co. are working full blast, and piling  up lumber in anticipation of a  brisk demand. .They sent out a big  shipment to Grand Forks a few  days ago. Building at Phoenix is  somewhat retarded owing to the  smallpox scare, but the trouble will  be of short duration. The local  demand for lumber is good.  Tlie California Wine Co. filled  orders this week from Greenwood,  Kaslo, Grand Forks, Columbia,  Silverton, Slocan City, New Denver,  Saudon, Moyie, Kimberley, Cranbrook. Fernie, and Ymir. Business  has been good of late, with every  prospect of further improvement.  From Bast Kootenay and the  Boundary orders are freely sent in.  J. Y. Griffin & Co. have had a  busy week filling orders for .Revelstoke, Moyie, Greenwood, Silverton,  Sandon, Kaslo, Grand Forks, Ross-  land.jOranbrook. .Whitewater. JEort^  Steele, Columbia, Trail, Slocan City,  Phoenix, Kuskonook, Preston, Pilot  Bay,-Eholt, Fernie and Lardo. They  have opened up some desirable accounts at Fernie, despite keen competition from eastern points.  '* The' Brackinan-Ker Milling Company speak of a*decided upward  move in business. As compared  with March of last year, the  month's business was more than  double in volume. Consignments  during the week were made to  Moyie, Slocan, Phoenix, Ainsworth,  S tndon, Arrowhead and several  lake points.  '*- Ferguson . ���&' Co. say business is  very good. Since last week they  have filled orders for Trail, Sandon,  Slocan, Greenwood, Ymir and New  Denver. Mr. Ferguson has just returned from a trip to Rossland and  Trail, where he did good business.  .Turner, Beeton ��fc Co. have not  been very busy this week, but filled  orders from the following points:  Pilot Bay, Nakusp, Salmo, Erie,  Deadwood, Slocan, New Denver,  Sandon, Ferguson and Trout Lake  City. With the advent of the railway it is expected that a big business will be opened up in the Lardeau country, where there are many  rich mines only awaiting facilities  for shipping.  The Kootenay Cigar Company are  filling some large orders. They  have sent out goods for the week to  Kitchener,. Moyie,' Grand Forks,  Salmo, Erie, Trail, New Denver,  Procter, Kaslo, Rossland, and Cranbrook. Trade is quiet but promising.  A. Macdonald & Co. sent out  g-)ods during the week to Ymir,  R ick Creek, Kitchener, Slocan City,  Kaslo, New Denver, Crawford Bay,  Creston, Robson,   Trail,   Rossland,  Moyie, Ferguson, Nakusp and other  points. Business average, with  every sign of increasing.  Teetzel & Co. have filled orders  for drugs and assayers' supplies from  Grand Forks, Greenwood, Silverton,  Rossland, Phoenix, Moyie, Salmo  and Ainsworth.    Business good.  F. Starkey & Co. have had a busy  week. They sent out provisions to  the various lake points and also to  the Slocan country and Boundary.  Mr. Starkey says the indications  are in favor of a general improvement.  .1. Cholditch & Co. had shipments  for Rossland, Phoenix, Moyie,  Greenwood, Trail, Cranbrook, Ymir,  Kaslo and Whitewater.  H. J. Evans &. Co. report business  rather dull, but the outlook is encouraging. Some big orders were  filled during the week.  An Old-Timer.  Edward Cooper,.a pioneer of the  province with railway survey parties, was in town yesterday. "Little Ted," as he is called, was over  the C. P. R. construction from the  Atlantic to the Pacific. He has  been with the Procter party in the  Hope and Similkameen countries recently, running the chain. There  were eighteen in the party, and tlie  survey having been completed, all  havo returned to town.  TAKES IT PHILOSOPHICALLY  AGUINALDO   CHEERFUL   IN   HIS  CONFINEMENT.  Disposition to Be Made of the Noted  Filipino  i*   Matter   of  Conjecture.  Repairing Baker Street.  . That portion of Baker street at  Ward where the ravine necessitated  planking, is now receiving attention. When the 4-inch planks are  put in position this particular section will be in keeping with the  rest of the thoroughfare, which  is one of the most creditable in the  province. Visitors declare" that  Baker street is the best piece of  macadam in the province.

David Chi'RCH.  Erie, March '28th.  Presented His Credentials.  Constantinople, March 29.���  John G. Leishmau, who has succeeded Oscar Strauss as United  States minister to Turkey, accompanied by the members of the legation, tlie United States consul-general, C. M. Dickinson, and the  United States vice-consul, William  Albert, had an official audience  with the sultan today. Mr. Leishmau presented his credentials. The  usual ceremony was observed and  the customary exchange of friendly  assurances. -  Bested Them Both.     _   Manila, March 20.���When Aguinaldo was captured he wore a plain  dark blue suit with the coat closed  and buttoned at the throat, and a  white wide helmet with a leather  band. He takes his capture philosophically. He is generally cheerful, but sometimes moody. His  health during the past year has  been very good. It is uncertain  what attitude he will now assume.  Certain visitors are permitted to  see Aguinaldo, but newspaper interviews with the prisoner are not  allowed.  On arriving in these waters with  the prisoner, the United States gunboat Vicksburg stopped eight miles  out and in response to a signal a  launch appeared from the shore of  Corregider. island and Aguinaldo  was quietly transferred. The  launch steamed up the Pasig river  to the wharf at the back of the  palace, where the prisoner disembarked almost unnoticed. Some  hours passed before the news of  Aguinaldo's capture was generally  known. The fact that he was a  prisoner caused joy and^ congratulation among the Americans. The  native population .was apathetic.  There was no particular excitement  anywhere.  , Many people visited the residence  of general and Mrs. Funston on the  Excale Real in the suburb of  Ermita. The general modestly declined to talk; Mrs. Funston was  evidently the happiest woman in  the Philippines. General Funston  has been recommended , for the  highest practicable reward. It is  believed here that he will receive  au appointment as brigadier-general |  in the regular army.  give such information than Aguinaldo and Mabini. Almost all the  statements that have hitherto been  made are from American sources.  It would, therefore, only be fair  that two representative Filipinos  should be allowed to give their  opinions about the Americans and  to speak on behalf of their fellow-  countrymen. The bringing of  Aguinaldo and Mabini to. America  can do no injury to truth and justice, and I assume that both desire  to know the truth and to do  justice."    Under.'Assumed Name.  New York, March 29.���J. M. W.  Durant, said to be the Durant who  recently had himself reported killed  in a duel with a Russian count at  Ostend, arrived today on the  steamer Marquette under the name  of C. F. Denton. According" to the  purser of the steamship he was not  known on board as Durant. He explained to the customs officials  when making his declaration that  the Denton name on the passenger  list was a mistake. He signed his  declaration J. M: W. Durant. His  mother appeared on the list as Mrs.  E. Durant. Durant and his mother  are living in Brooklyn.  PASSED  SEOOND   READING  PROVINCE  AND   DOMINION  CONVICTED  ON CHARGE  OF  UNLAWFUL  ASSEMBLE.  Ran   a   Chinaman   Out   of   Phoenix  Quarantine Raised at Moyie-Gen-  eral Telegraphic News.  CROW'S    NEST    SOUTHERN   BILL  RAILROADED THROUGH.  Mine Owners' Association Don't Like  Reduction in Engineers'Hours.  Legislative Notes.  Boston, March 20.���Nuralah, the  "Terrible Turk," proved more than  a match for the two heavyweight  wrestlers, Lumden, the Swedish  champion, and, John Smith of  Brooklyn in a wrestling tournament tonight. The big fellow handled both his opponents with comparative ease. The first bout was  with Smith, Graeco-Roman style;  time i minutes, 29 seconds. The  second bout, with Lumden, was  catch-as-catch-can. Time 5 minutes, 38 seconds. ���  Know Nothing About It.  New York, March 29.���James .J.  Hill and his son, James N. Hill, were  at the office of the Great Northern  railway today, but they refused to  give any information concerning  the reported purchase of the Burlington. At the office of J. Pierpont  Morgan & Co. no information was  obtainable.- President Mellen of  the Northern Pacific said he knew  nothing about a consolidation involving his line. Ho said it might  be put through by the largest holders of the Northern Pacific stock  and the stock of the other roads  without his knowledge. According  to the Mail and Express, bankers in  this city are inclined to believe that  the transaction is to be consummated at 180 in cash or moro in  bonds for the Burlington stocks.  Passed tha Bill.  Parts, March 30.���The law of  associations bill, one of tlie most  important issues considered by the  French parliament during the last  decade, was passed last evening by  the chamber of deputies by a vote  of 303 to 220. The chamber then  adjourned to May 14th.  What Will Be Done With Him?  Washington, March 29.���The  disposition to be made of Aguinaldo  is a matter that can be postponed  indefinitely. Whatever action is  taken in regard to him will originate  with the army officials in the  Philippines and be passed upon  finally here. There is no inclination  to deal harshly with the man who  has led the insurrection against the  forces of this country. Some of the  cabinet officers think it is possible  he may be used with good effect by  the authorities of the Philippines  commission in the establishment of  civil government. General Mac-  Arthur's dispatch suggesting that  -Aguinaldo^might^issue^an���address"  advising the insurgents to accept  the situation was pointed to as indicating possibilities along this line.  On the other hand Aguinaldo's  record has not been such as to win  for him great confidence in his constancy, and if his influence cannot  be utilized safely, he will undoubtedly be sent to some place where he  can foment no further trouble.  Guam was mentioned as a possible  place for his detention. The president and his cabinet believe the  capture of Aguinaldo will mean  much in the crushing of the insurrection. Indeed, they are inclined  to believe now that it means the  utter collapse of the ��� opposition to  the authority of tlie United States.  Some Filipino Correspondence.  Boston, March 29.���Senor Sixto  Lopez has sent the two following  cablegrams to Aguinaldo and  Mabini:  "Aguinaldo, care general Mac-  Arthur, Manila���Request American  authorities to send you with  Mabini to America.  "(Signed)   Sixto Lopez."  " Mabini, care military governor,  Guam ��� Aguinaldo captured. J  have cabled him to request American authorities to send you with him  to America. I wish to apply to  authorities at Guam.  " (Signed)   Sixto Lopez."  In reference to the above, senor  Lopez issued the following statement: "I believe it is the wish of  the American people to know the  truth about many things connected  with this war, as well as to obtain  au authoritative statement of the  attitude of the Filipinos towards  American sovereignty. I don't  know of two men better fitted to  Victoria, March 29.���[Special to  /The Tribune.]-^The Crow's Nest  Southern bill was railroaded through  a second reading today, but went no  farther, although it was evident an  arrangement had been made to put  it through the committee stage as  well. ,Jn order to .do this all public  bills were lakr over -as of rno importance when they conflicted with  the interests of the Crow's Nest  coal barons, one of whom, Jaffray,  is" here and very anxious to get  home to Toronto. But they broke  faith, as they have done in every  instance in which they have had an  opportunity, and their bill "is liable  to have a rough time in getting  through committee.  Helmcken's resolution re provincial bounty to a refinery will be  discussed on Tuesday.  It is said the minister of education has agreed with the Vancouver  members to drop the section of his  school bill re powers of school trustees so.that the section in the act  as it now is will remain in force.  Houston is attempting to get a section inserted that will give the  -people ot-city-distriets^ocai^optioir  as to whether they want school  trustees at all, the councils to have  all the powers now vested in the  board of school trustees. This  would do away with the dual control of the cities finances unless a  majority of the people wanted such  control.  The Mine Owners' Association is  making an attempt, through one of  the members from Kootenay, to  have the amendment relating to the  hours that engineers must bo employed at hoists struck out of the  inspection of metalliferous mines  bill.  John Elliot of Nelsou is here trying to get the famous pack trail  mine case reopened, and it is said  that Taylor of Revelstoke will move  for a return of all the correspondence between tho government and  the litigants, which extends over a  period of eight years.  There is no likelihood of anyone  being sent from here to act in any  of the provincial offices or institutions at Nel.son.  Greenwood, March 29.��� [Special  to The Tribune].���The preliminary  hearing of Rex vs. alderman M. H.  Roy, hotel proprietor, John  Meagher, carpenter, and Fred Dur-  elle,'miner, all of Phoenix, charged  with unlawful assembly was held  today before justice of the peace  Norris. Intense interest was manifested in the proceedings, tho  courtroom being crowded, Phoenix  contributing a large delegation.  The case arose out of an attempt of  Phoenix citizens to prevent superintendent John L. Parker of the  Dominion Copper Company employing a Chinese servant in -his residence.  /On January 5th Parker, accompanied by his solicitor, Clive Pringle  of Greenwood, drove up to Phoenix  with a Chinaman. On his arrival  in the city limits lie was met by a  large crowd, who dumped the occupants of the vehicle out "and securing the Chinaman sent him back  here. The matter was reported to  the authorities, who employed barrister A. M. Whiteside to prosecute.  The evidence was most contradictory, but the magistrate held that  it was sufficient to convict Roy and  Du Relle. Meagher proved a complete alibi and was discharged. The  other prisoners both admitted being  in the crowd, but took no active  part. R. B. Kerr acted for the defence and late tonight secured bail  of $500 for their release.  Lieutenant J. Edward Leckie of  Strathcona's Horse, accompanied by  his, brother, nnjjov -R:.G. Edward  'Leckie,"returhecr home today from  South Africa. ITe was tendered n  complimentary banquet by JI. E.

Montreal.���President Pittiway  of the Senior Lacrosse Association  of Ottawa, who is in the citj', regards New Westminster's claim to  hold the Minto cup rather presumptuous, from the fact than wheu the  Britisli Columbians defeated tho  Capitals last summer it was looked  upon as natural and only right in  an exhibition game in whicli nothing was at stake.

THE  HUDSON'SBAY  STOKES  BAKER STREET        NELSON  When the Miner said it was -all  over but tlie shouting, it overlooked  tlie squealing. -  In the language of the Nelson  Miner, the money of the Nelson  Mine    Owners    Association    talks.  �� There is no getting away from  the fact that the only "calculation"  which enters into the Miner's abuse  of John Houston is a financial one.  Yesterday's issue of the Miner  does    not    support   the   previous  assurances of that   eminently re-  . spectable'j ournal that John Houston  was a dead 'un.  It may be wrong for John  Houston to bestride the narrow  world like a colossus, but if he must  bestride it, 'twere better he should  do it like a colossus than a hair-pin.  If it will assist the Miner, in its  demands upon the Mine O wners  Association for money, Two Tribune  will agree with it that John Houston  is a nasty, mean fellow, and should  be spanked.  In times gone by the "Three  Tailors of Tooley Street" : essayed  to speak for the people of Fingland.  Nelson has improved upon this. Its  Ward street tailor is now up on his  hind legs speaking for the "whole  .works."  .The Nelson Miner refers to John  Houston -as -being "clad in the  mantle of the patriot." While The  Tribune cannot state with authority just what mantle John has on,  it will venture the suggestion that  .if it fits him it was not made by  the philosophical tailor of the Ward  street ravine.  The metaphorical freak of the  Nelsou Miner says John Houston  lias, moulded and manipulated civic  ,-.'.'affairs" for sonie time past as  though they were  "putty."    Just  ��� what anyone else would have done,  who found himself in a city with  , yfputty affairs/'   the freak sayoth  jaat.  --John Houston is accused in yesterday's issue of the Miner with  being a traitor to the best interests  of British Coluinbiq/ Thus after a  month's labor is the brat of a hjire-  brain presented to the public/John  Houston is a traitor because he  opposed the entrance of James .1.  Hill's railway system into the East  Kootenay coal fields; yet it is ou  record that the harebrain of the  Miner also opposed Hill's entrance  up to a certain point, and it is suggested that the change in the policy of the paper was dictated by  the little band of discontents whose  subsidies keep it alive. /So much  f jv tho first part of the Miner's  accusation. Now for Mr. Houston's  course in the legislature.  The Miner says that the Crow's  - Nest Southern railway bill came up  for its second reading on Wednesday.   This is a lie, but, as lying  goes hand in hand with breach of  confidence, nothing more   need be  said upon it. - What happened in  the legislature was this: The member in charge of the Crow's Nest  Southern bill wished to have the  rules of the house dispensed with,  so that his bill could be considered  before it was reached iu the ordinary way.   This  would require the  unanimous vote of the legislature,  but when the question was put Mr.  Houston was the first  to record a  negative vote.    This was sufficient  to defeat the object of the motion,  though had it been necessary it is  safe to say many other  negative  votes would   have been recorded.  It is not recorded in The Tribune  or anywhere else that . thirty-eight  other members voted in favor of  the     suspension     of    the'     rules.  When-the editor of the Miner- saj s  they did, it merely  shows that he  has fallen into his accustomed habit  of lying.   la the first'place there  are not thirty-eight other members  in the legislature, and in the second  place all the other members of the  legislature would not be entitled tp  vote upon any such motion, and in  the third place a division could not  possibly   take place upon such  a  motion, so no person could say how  the thirty-six other members of the  legislature would have voted had  they been in the . house.    Indeed it  may be doubtful if anyone. aside  from a political tailor could make  the same number of mistakes and  misstatements in so short a space.  All this rot, however, about Mr.  Houston's treachery in connection  with the Hill railway,   is  merely  thrown in to cover the real point of  attack which the hired assassin of  the. mine-owners' organ makes in  his next "case."   And in commenting upon this it is  significant that  the charge is not made until the  chief squealer got back from his  holiday trip to California.    Here is  The  framewoflc^fof    the    Miner's"  second charge :   The mining industry   is   hampered   through   being  obliged to pay something into the  provincial treasury in the way of  taxes.   True, the taxation imposed  is lighter than that imposed upon  any other industry in the province;  but     that     cuts     no     ice.     The  mine owners   don't   want, to   pay  any   taxes.    Attempts were made  to have the taxes   removed, and  there   was   a  prospect that they  might be successful;   but what did  Houston do? John Houston, M.P.P.,  supporting the mine-owners' union  in their efforts to evade the payment of their just taxes!   Not on  your tin-type. Houston, the traitor,  votes nay.     It hasn't came  to a  vote   yet,   but   that   style   looks  dramatic,   and   suits   the Miner's  young man, and we must let it go.  Here are two charges of treason  proven, and the tailor's dummy proceeds to sjambok the culprit in the  most, approved style.   <*The Miner  needs the money, and the only-way  to reach certain purses in Nelson is  through abuse of Houston.   . Here  it   comes  .like   a   drunken   man's  vomit:    Trickster! traitor 1 bully!  dangerous man!   awful pull! look  out   for   him!    autocrat!   Croker!  devious.course ! putty !     The mine  owners "will probably have a meeting today to-pass upon the merits  of the young man's effort, but if  they don't put up he is to have an  other chance. How the genial old  gent must regret this lost opportunity.      .  James Johnstone, who at one  time was manager of the Crow's  Nest Pass Coal Company's collieries,  has a letter in this issue in defence  of the coal company's charges, as  well as its inability to meet the demands of the British Columbia  smelters for fuel. Some days ago  The Tribune stated that a manager of the Crow's Nest Pass Coal  Company sold coke in the United  States as low as $1 per ton. This,  Mr.. Johnstone says, is incorrect, as  tho lowest ho sold coke for was  $1.15 peivton, and the price for the  same coke is now $2 per ton. It is  needless to say that The Tribune  had no wish to misrepresent Mr.  Johnstone even to the extent of  fifteen cents.  From the tone of the Miner's  leader yesterday it would appear  that the crow referred to on  Wednesday got on the wrong plate.  The Miner and Owners Duet.  Wo share our mutual woes.  Our mutual buidens bear ;  And ofi en for each other Hows  The sympathizing tear.  FIFTEEN   CENTS   OUT.  In submitting the following letter  the writer complained that The  Tribune had credited him with  selling coke in the United States at  $1 per ton. This he explains is incorrect, and although it does not  appear in the letter, the writer  volunteered the statement that the  lowest he had sold coke for in the  United States was $1.15, or fifteen  cents . more per ton than The  Tp.ibune stated:  Editor of The Tribune:   In your  editorial of today T note a statement which evidently refers to my  having   sold   coke   in the United  States at $1 per ton. .This is a mistake, as I never sold coke as low as  this figure, because it could not be  produced for it.   The present price  received in my old coal field ' is $2  per ton for coke, Avhich is about  5  percent inferior to Crow's Nest coke,  but which is the best produced in  the  United States.    It is entirely  misleading,   however,   to compare  such   prices, because   the' cost of  production   in   West   Virginia   is  about one-third of what it is in  British   Columbia.     For example,  miners in Fernie are paid 00 cents  per ton, in West  Virginia 20. cents  per ton ; coke ovens cost from $800  to $1200 each in Fernie, in West  Virginia $250   to $400; fire brick  costs $21 per   thousand in   West  Virginia, and $S0 per thousand at  Fernie.   At certain times coke was  sold in West Virginia at or below  the cost of production, but the coal'  companies could still make a profit  from the company stores and house  rents.   Taking all this difference in  cost into consideration, the price of  $4.75    charged   to    the     British  Columbia   smelters   is   an    excessively   reasonable   one.     A   large  business connection in the states is  "tn^~b^tT��posiible==lKjlicy "=beca,use -  then the shutting down or starting up of one or two smelters will  not be felt.   Last spring the entire  coke business in British Columbia  was closed down and the coal company had to either make contracts  in the United States or go out of  business.   The smelters gave me a3  their possible requirements for last  year just half the amount which  they   afterwards    ordered.    As it  takes months to build coke ovens  the coal company could not be expected to anticipate the wants  of  smelters which they did not theui-  selver anticipate.. Yours very truly.

LYMAN'S PAPER SCHEMES.  Following tho failure of the  London' ��fc Globe Investment  Company comes, what tile Tacoma  Ledger styles "another of almost as  gigantic proportions . in which  there are many capitalists of  Canada and Alaska interested. The  Yukon Trading, Mining and Exploration Company, of which Dr.  John Grant Lyman "was the head,  and a half dozen other get-rich-  quick companies, fathered by the  same ' individual and having the  base of their operations in the far  north, have failed. In eastern  "financial centers, where there are  probably more who have lost their  money than in this part of the  country, the matter is to be laid  before tlie authorities. Among the  well-known 'capitalists' who, since  the opening of the Klondike, spent  a great deal of time on the Pacific  coast, is Dr. Lyman. He was well  known in this district even before  those days aud particularly among  mining men. His first appearance  was in 1890 when he organized  what was known as the Colorado  Gold Mining Company. Later on  he promoted the Kootenay Mining  and Exploration Company, and  whenthiscorporation was completed  lie invited those who held stock in  the first concern to exchange it for  that of the new company.  " In the main tlie Kootenay Company stock was purchased.in Spokane, eastern"British Columbia and  in-England.���As���offshoots-of���tho-  Kootenay Company Lyman organized the Yukon Trading, Mining  and Exploration Company, the  Yukon Mining and Dredging Com-,  pany, the Yukon Mining and Milling Company and several other  smaller concerns. In 1898 offices of  the companies; were opened in  Seattle, New York and London,  England, and. stocks sold at a high  figure.' The Seattle office was in  charge of Eugene Gladwin. He  was known as: property manager  for , the companies. It was six  months or more, it is. said, before  the various companies were in  working order after which two of  them paid a dividend of three per  cent., per month for1 two months.  ���During this time, it is said, a large  amount of stock in the Kootenay  Company was sold iri Alaska, the  state of Washington, New York,  Boston and in England.  : "After two mouths had passed,  according to Dr. Lyman, word was  received in New York from manager  Gladwin to the effect that he had  sued out an injunction against the  company paying any more dividends, claiming that' the money  being sb spent was needed for  development work., This announcement, however, i6 is alleged, was  followed by another from Lyman  to the effect that there would only  be a temporary suspension of dividends and that in a few months all  would be well. Gladwin, it appears, did sue out the injunction,  but now it is alleged he did so at  the instigation of Dr. Lyman and  for the purpose of furnishing an excuse to stop the, dividend payments  without stopping the sale of stock.

Kansas, has always been noted for  its eccentric characters and fov its  men and women who, when sternly  set upon what seems their duty, do  not count the cost.  John Brown was one of the first  of tho Kansas enthusiasts, and his  daring and firmness won for him a  permanent place in the history of  the nation. He went to Kansas in  1855 in order to work and fight, if  need be, against, the establishment  of slavery iri that territory. In  October, 1859, at the head of 17  white men and five black men, he  began an attack upon Harper's  Perry and captured the arsenal.  This famous raid was designed to  be the first move in the uprising of  the slaves he proposed to lead. He  was captured after a desperate  fight, was tried for treason and  sentenced to-be hanged within 48  hours.  William Clatk Quantrell' is  another name which must be forever associated with Kansas. He  went to Kansas in 1S57. He joined  John Brown in his 'efforts to , keep.  Kansas free, but became dissatisfied  and left him. When the Confederacy,  was formed he was commissioned a"  captain, and he gathered under his  command a reckless band of men.  From 1802 to 1804 Quantrell and  his band made life a terror for the.  abolitionists.  John J. Ingalls reached Kansas  shortly after John Brown went  there. He was a young lawyer and,  as'he put it, "saw the bouudless  prairie first without one shirt on  his back and no money in his  pocket." He was one of the most  picturesque figures in the United  States senate when he 'represented  Kansas there. He was'a master of  satire and fearless in his use of that  deadly weapon.  "Subsidy" Pomeroy was another  Kansan of the early days who had  his peculiarities.  William A. Peffer, whose tawny  mane and long granger whiskers  have added hot a little to the^gay-._  "ety-of nations, was another eccentric senator from Kansas, lie is a  product of Topeka and is a Populist  of the Populists.  "Sockless" Jerry Simpson came  from Mrs. Nation's home, Medicine  Lodge.  Mrs. Mary Ellen Lease, who has  developed the surprising faculty of  believing her own declarations and  whose matrimonial complications  have added not a little to her fame,  first saw the light of day at  Wichita,  The Rev.

Anthony, the fighting editor of Leavenworth, might  be mentioned in the list of Kansas  eccentrics if it were safe to "do so.  He has been carved, shot full of  holes, beaten, stabbed' and cut  scores of times, but he is still thirsting for gore and never so happy  as when he greets the latest man  who has a mission " to lick the  editor." "''.'���'-.  The late governor L. D.Lewellyn  was a notable man. He was elected  by the Populists in 1893, drove the  Republicans out of the state  capital, called out the state troops,  armed the Populist legislators and  put Topeka in a state of siege.;  William A. White, whose editorial, "What's the matter with  Kansas?", jumped him into fame,  and whose recent study of Richard  Croker fastened ���him more securely  on the pedestal, is a Kansas man.  John P. St. John, who defeated  Blaine by securing 25,000 in New  York state" as a Prohibitionist candidate for president, is a Kansas  man. His peculiar hobby is that  the Prohibitionists will some day  elect a president of the United  States.  Of' course there are others���  droves of them���but the above ore  fair samples.. No other state in the  Union can furnish such a list.-  Watch Kansas; a new meteor will  flash into the heavens'there before  many moons. Mrs. Nation will be  eclipsed soon..' It is.inevitable.

CITY LOCAL NEWS  The Nelson Gun Club will hold a  shoot this afternoon at 2:30 o'clock  at the traps at the foot of Stanley  street.  ' There was but one case iu the  police court yesterday morning, ft  was oue of drunkenness, and the  usual line of $5 or ten days was imposed.  There was a meeting of the  board of works yesterday moaning  at which it was decided to recommence the laying of sidewalks in  various parts of the city.  r.Re'v. J. B. Morgan's subject for  Sunday morning's service in the  Baptist church will be "Fellowship."  In the evening he will givn an address to miners on "God or Gold."  Yesterday was tho anniversary  of the fatal explosion at the powder  worlc9 near Five-mile point, and  the many friends of the poor fellows who were killed' on the occasion had their memory recalled.  Acting flro chief Chambers yesterday got word from chief Lillie,  who went to Spokane to purchase a  team of horses, that he had secured  suitable animals. They cost $300,  and will probably be here Monday  night or Tuesday.  ^ Charles A. Waterman & Co. will  sell by auction on Tuesday the  whole of John R. Campbell's household furniture and effects at hi9  residence on Silica street, between  Hall and Hendryx streets. An announcement of the sale appears in  another column.  The Terpsichorean Club had a  successful meeting on Thursday���  night. It had been contemplated  to give a grand ball during Faster  week, but as the members of the  Roman Catholic church have a date  fixed for Easter Monday, the club  postponed their ball for a week.  The fire brigade were called out  last night to deal with a fire whieh  only existed in tho imagination of  some person about the saw mill.  The hose team rattled down to the  mill, and finding nothing wrong  there, it was driven full speed in  the Bogustown direction. The  men had their run for nothing.  Among those registered at the  Hume yesterday was H. Parrish,  ��trathcona. There was.a lively  discussion in the corridor as to  whether the guest was a returned  warrior or a Strathcona merchant:1  The consensus of opinion was that  the Strathcona in question comes  from a town ; of that name near  Edmonton.      Information Wanted.  Chief of police Jarvis is in receipt  of a letter from Fort Dodge, asking  for information concerning J. McNamara, who was in the Kootenay  Lake General Hospital in "July last.  He left here for Ymir, and since  then all trace of him has been lost.  His mother is anxious to hear from  him. Inquiries are also instituted  concerning the whereabouts of  Frank Richard, who will hear good  news if he communicates with his  friends at Montreal. Frank is supposed to have been in Nelson about  a year ago.  Juvenile Offenders  A. number of young lads have  started an industry in Nelson, collecting empty sacks and bottles and  selling���them.^=As=long=as=their=  operations were honestly carried on  there was no objection, but of late  complaints are numerous that the  boys steal the goods. It is not safe  while any of tliem are round to  leave au empty sack in a wagon;  and as for bottles, they are carried  off wherever found. No arrests  have as yet been made in this connection, but unless the petty larcenies are discontinued some of the  juvenile offenders will find themselves in the hands of the police.  Millinery Opening.  ..Fred Jrvine & Co. have fixed  Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday  nextxi^itheir. millinery opening.  W. fvyihe has just returned from  the best markets and brought with  him. the latest and most fashionable lines of goods, especially in the  millinery department. The opening  will be one of the grandest displays  of hats, bonnets, flowers, trimmings,  etc., ever witnessed in Nelson.  There is no longer an excuse for  sending away for choice millinery  ���the latest and best can be secured  at this establishment. There  treat in store for the ladies.  is a  Installation of Officers.  At the attendance of the officers  of Court Kootenay No.  3138,  Independent Order of Foresters, which  took place in the lodge room on  Thursday evening, George S. S.  Paterson, financial secretary, was  presented with a handsome gold  locket, on behalf of the members of  the court, by J. J. Chambers, chief  ranger. The officers installed by F.  W. Swannell, high chief ranger,  were : J. A. Irving, C. D. H. C. R.;  J. J. Chambers, chief ranger; W. J.  Murphy, V. C. R. ; P. B-. Fleming,  recording secretary; George S. S.  Paterson, financial secretary; W.  H. Smith, treasurer; Edgar Irwin,  orator; Howard Bush, S. W.; II.  Bruce, J. W.; D. H. I'roudfoot, S.B.;  P. IT. Strong, J. B. J. J. Chambers  and George C. S. Paterson were appointed delegates to the high court  which meets in Revelstoke on  April 22nd.  The Miners' Point of View.  Mr. James Wilks, president of  district association No. 0, Western  Federation of Miners, has prepared  for the press a" statement as to his  views on the refinery question. The  document is too lengthy to be  published iu this morning's  Tribune. Mr. Wilks expresses the  conviction that the establishment  of lead refineries would be of great  advantage to the Dominion in  general and the silver-lead bearing  districts in particular, but contends  that some guarantee should be  given that- these establishments  would be operated iu the interests  of the mining industry. He considers it regrettable that the silver-  lead industry of the province is  pretty much under the thumb and  at the mercy of the American  smelter trust, and holds that proper  precautions should be -taken to  prevent the refinery falling into  like hands. He does, not favor the  proposed bonus of $5 per ton on  ores mined and treated in Canada,  but rather thinks that the establishment should be under direct  government control, as should also  be the railways of the country.  "Mr. Houston's resolution of  government ownership ' of the  Crow's Nest Southern railway, I  regard as the correct idea," adds  Mr. Wilks, "and I hope that it is  adopted by,the house, and that the  government carries out the implied  instructions. I just think the samo  of that proposition as I do of the  refinery question���the government  should either build it or control it."  Off to South Africa.  A couple of letters have reached  the city from George Beer, who has  received a commission in the  mounted police force recruited for  service in South Africa. One of  the letters, to Mr. Robie, which was  dated from Ottawa on the 23rd  inst., says among other things:.  "Yon will be glad to tell them that  I won my promotion by hard work  in . Kootenay.. The C. O. himself  told me that my work was thorough  and that the Kootenay men, as I  had already claimed, were the best  body of men in the regiment. All  the Nelson men are well. There is  no truth in the rumor that some of  them are about to be returned.  Another letter announces that they  sail on the 28th. For his first  lieutenant he has a Nelson man, in  the person of Eaton; and Jack  Blaney has been selected by captain  Beer as orderly. Young Garvin is  also in captain Beer's troop, as is  also the sergeant-major of the  regiment.���-      ������==-'     ;   ���      __________  Mining Records.
