 DAILY EDITION   BY MAIL  FIVE DOLLARS A YEAR  WEEKLY EDITION  BY MAIL  TWO DOLLARS A YEAR  NINTH YEAR  THE TRIBUNE: NELSON B. C. WEDNESDAY, MARCH 20, 1901  PRICE FIVE CENTS  THE NEW PUBLIC SCHOOL ACT  EXTRAORDINARY   POWERS   CONFERRED ON TRUSTEES.  Tho City Council Denied Representation  ���      but Called upon to Provide  Funds.  A letter was yesterday received  by city clerk Strachan from Mr.  Smith Curtis, M. L. A., asking an  expression of opinion from the city  council oh the proposed new Public School Act, more particularly  on .sub-section 2, section 7 and section 14. According to the former  a person to be qualified to act as a  school trustee must be the registered owner of property of the assessed value of $500 or more, over  and above any registered incumbrance and a British subject.  To this property qualification no  particular objection appears to be  raised.  Section 14, however, repeals section 33 of the old act. The last  named section provides tliat the  board of school trustees shall ou or  before the 1st day of February iii  each year give an estimate of tlie  expense of school maintenance for  the current year, whieh shall be  met by the city treasurer, but  should this estimate provide for extensive additions, alterations or  buildings, the city, council may refuse to sanction same, in which case  a bylaw covering such proposed expenditure is to be submitted to the  ratepayers for their approval. If  the ratepayers approve, then it is  the duty -of the city treasurer to  provide'the funds.  Section 14 of the new act practically takes the whole business���  except so far as the paying of the  monies is concerned���out of the  hands of the city council,; and  would enable the-.board of;-school  trustees,* with of "course the consent  of the ratepayers, to undertake the  building, altering or enlarging of  schoolhouses. No-provision is made  in the act to have the city council  represented on the school board.  To this there is a very strong objection on the part of the mayor  aud aldermen, who contend that  the city council who have to provide for the ' maintenance of the  schools, should be represented on  the school board.  In view of the. fact that Nelson  has, petitioned the government to  be declared a separate school district and thus have control over the  schools, such a provision as 'that  -made in the new act would upset  the'whole project. It is felt, that'  the city council should have a voice  in school matters, as such an arrangement would have a tendency  ^tOLCiirtail^expenseS���without-inter--  fering with the efficiency of the  establishment. This view of the  matter will be presented to Smith  Curtis on behalf of the corporation  of Nelson.      _   Disease of a Mild Type.  Phoenix, Marcli 19.���[Special to  Tlie Tribune.]���A disease diagnosed  to be varioloid or a mild form of  smallpox has broken out in the  Granby bunkhouse, there being  several cases. It is said to have  been found first on a man named  Pope, who came from Spokane  about a month ago. Dr. R. AV.  Jakes, provincial health officer for  the.Boundary, has quarantined the  building in .which the cases were  first discovered and is doing everything possible to prevent its spread.  There were about 160 men sleeping  in the Granby bunk house. There  is no varioloid whatever within the  limits of the corporation of the  city of Phoenix, the mine buildings  being on the outside. The eity  council is active, however, and with  the,city health officer, Dr. Gordon,  is' taking steps to prevent the.  spread of the disease. The cases  thus far are of the mildest type  and it is not believed there will be  any serious consequences.  Alarm in St. Petersburg.  St. Petersburg, March 18.���  Alarm pervades, high circles here.  The police . have notified house  owners to have their dvorniks or  house police report for duty and  hold themselves in constant readiness. A sotnia, or company of  Cossacks, passed the Moscow gate  this morning on their way to  Tsarskoeselo, 17 miles south of St.  ^Petersburg, to which place the czar  has just removed. The police said  they would escort the czar back to  tlie Winter Palace and' that he  would return by carriage instead of  by rail. It appears probable, however, that the Cossacks were merely  sent to Tsarskoeselo as a precaution,  since his majesty is more easily  protected there than here. It is  apparently confirmed that three  students were killed yesterday.  The Cossacks rode into the crowds  ou the sidewalk and many faces  were cut open by their knotted  whips.  Students and working men threw  rubber shojes; canes and snow balls  at the Cos^^fo^Jt is reported that  one Cossa&f||^fe4  i ~. i*L*,/Vli**: ���E^K��*offia��!*"��  KANSAS CONVICTS AT BAY  HOLD FIFTEEN GUARD3 AS HOSTAGES IN A MINE.

The presence of"*>forking  men among the rioters rendered the  demonstration more dangerous than  any known in a generation.  After reading the manifesto, the  students threw their crumpled  copies into the crowd aud raised a  flag inscribed "For Liberty." The  students also shouted "Help us get  our rights," and the mob responded  with cheers.  The official Messenger, which published a report of the recent disorders in various Russian cities and  of Sunday's outbreak in St. Petersburg, says of tho latter: "When  tlie crowd numbering 3000 became  turbulent the Cossacks and police  were summoned. The demonstrators retreated to the Cathedral of  Our Lady of Kasan, pelting the  Cossacks and police with various  missiles.  The students attempted to display red and white flags, bearing  various inscriptions, on one side of  the cathedral and the crowd came  into violent collision with the  Cossacks aud police. A portion retired into the cathedral,' although  services were going on, behaving  noisily and smoking cigarettes until  ejected. Altogether 330 male  students, 377 women, mostly  students, and 44 other persons were  arrested. A police commissioner  ,with 20 policemen, four Cossacks  and- thirty-two rioters, male aud  female,- were wounded.   -  The $3,000,000 Stock Issue..  Montreal,      March _   19;���The  directors of the Dominion Iron and  Steel Company met today and made  an allotment of the issue of $3,000,-  000 sevenper cent cumulative preferred stock.   The issue of 30,000  shares was subscribed for nearly  three times.   Holders of  common  stock who applied for preferred received   one   share    for   each   five  shares of common held by them.  Applications   up   to    twenty-five  shares   received   the  full   amount  asked for.   The balance of 30,000  shares was allotted to' other applicants, twenty-five shares allowed to  each.       There   were    about   1500  applicants.   Applications of American capitalists amounted to $3,000,-  000. __________  _:__Russia _Weakens.i  London, March 20.���Dr. Morrison  wiring to the Times from Pekin  says: "Prince Ching received me  ���today and confirmed the information as to Russia's modification of  the Manchurian convention. The  Chinese minister at St. Petersburg  officially reports that Russia has  agreed to eliminate the clause  granting her exclusive privileges in  Mongolia and Turkestan.and also  to modify various other clauses objected to by China."  Status-of Free State.  Washington, March 19.���The  status of the Transvaal or Orange  Free State in the eye7of tlie government of the United States probably  will be for the first time fixed when  a consul-general shall be sent out  to Pretoria to succeed Adalbert S.  Hay, who has just returned to  Washington on leave of absence,  but without the purpose to go back  to Pretoria. It is said that so far  as known there has been absolutely  no official declaration on that point-  No Improvements.  Montreal, March 19.���The city  council today voted down the proposed loan of $300,000 for permanent improvements urgently required. Failure to secure the  money will leave Montreal's streets  in an awful condition next summer.  Voting down of the loan, which required a two-thirds vote, was  brought about by sectional jealousy.                 -   . '  Seven GunnerB Killed.  Bomhay, March 20.���Seven gunners were killed by the explosion of  a Howitzer shell at Secunderabad,  India, today.  Leavenworth,'   Kansas,   March  19.���In   th��   Kansas   state   penitentiary coal mine at Lansing 234  prisoners who went down into the  mine   on   Monday   morning  "have  mutinied  and are holding fifteen  guards as hostages.   They refuse to  let the guards come to the surface  until warden  Tomlinson. promises  to give them better food: " They  threaten to kill the guards, if their  demands   are   not complied with.  The mines are worked by the worst  class of convicts and  among those  who have mutinied are twenty life  prisoners.    Warden Tomlinson has  refused to   grant   their   demands.  Many complaints litiye been. made  by   the   prisoners, because lof the  grade of food furnished them,  and  to this dissatisfaction have   been  added allegations of mistreatment.  No outbreak was attempted, however,   until    the   men-   who  .had  entered the miue refused to return  until   their   demands    should   be  granted.     They  killed othe mules  used in the mines and are living on  this meat.   Serious trouble is apprehended if   it   shall   bo found  necessary to send deputies into the  colliery.'    There   was   great   consternation this afternoon among the  families of the guards who are held  by   the   convicts.     All the   penitentiary shops have been closed and  the convicts have been locked in  their cells in order to have all the  guards ready to handle the convicts  should they attempt to rush from  tlie mine.  Tlie convicts have threatened to  wreck the mines, but the threat- is  laughed at' by warden Tomlinson,  who says they would not attempt  this, as such action would endanger  their lives. He says he will starve  them out. A communication was  received from one of the guards to-  day.'stating they were hungry and  tired, but so far as he could learn  all were alive. The first outbreak  in the mine took place shortly after  the noon meal yesterday and was  started by the convicts in division  No. 8./ Of the 19 men in this division 16 seized the guard and  overpowered him and announced  that they had decided to strike.  They told the guard they had  decided to mine two instead of  three cars of coal as a day's work  in future and that they proposed to  have better food. This; guard was  left in. charge ot two of the con-"  =victs=in-the=mutiny while thexithers"  marched to the " adjoining division, and called the convicts there to  join the revolt. Convicts were soon  marching through the mine from  one division to another, swinging  their lamps and picks. So far as  can be learned no opposition pf any  kind was offered to the convicts.  The officers being unarmed were  helpless and the life of anyone  would have been forfeited had he  tried to check the mad spirit of the  convicts.  Guard McShane," one of the 15  hostages, was hoisted to the surface  tonight, the striking convicts permitting it because of his ill health.  He reported that the prisoners have  been careful to avoid any violent  act. The other guards, he said, are  in good condition and> ^JLU hold out  as long as the jcgnVic'ts remain  mutinous. An hour later a signal  came from below and a convict not  in sympathy with the strikers was  pulled up.  As the cages were half the distance from the bottom of the shaft  the: prisoner was forced to climb  four hundred feet, crawling up on  the shaft timbers to reach the  cages. The convict said the men in  the mine had had nothing to eat  since noon yesterday except some  corn coffee whieh was made from'  corn used to feed the mules in the  mines. The mules, he said, will be  eaten unless the strike is ended,  soon.  Late tonight another convict was  hoisted to the surface to confer  with the warden. Warden Tomlinson still says, he will force the  convicts to (surrender unconditionally, much as he regrets starving  his own officers.  Leavenworth, March  19.���Tlie  The No Popery Oath.  London, March 19.���In the house  of lords today, lord Salisbury referring, to the question raised by  the "no popery oath" taken by the  king, said he must regret very much  that language of such iudecent  violence had ever been placed in the  king's anti-Roman Catholic oath,  but if it was modified or repeated,  a great many .people, perfectly  sincere though not very wise, would  say that such action meant supporting ,, transubstantiation. He  proposed on behalf, of- the government that a committee be appointed  to consider the declaration required  for the sovereign ;bri' his accession  and whether its language could be  modified advantageously without  diminishing its efficiency as security  for the maintenance of. the Protestant succession. - The matter will  be considered' Thursday.  A Total Wreck.  Victorta, March 19.���The steamer  Williametta which ran on Denman  island near Village Point, about  two miles from/Union, where she  loaded 1000 tons', of coal will be a  total loss, for her back has beeu  broken. She was lying on the rock  amidships and when the after part  of her hull filled she_ broke, her  back.    NEW   CHAPEL  DEDICATED  GERMANY  VISION  CANNOT   ALLOW   DI-  OF   MANCHURIA.

Bishop Dontenwille,  Who Discourses on. the Advan-  -   tages of -Education.  Right Rev. bishop Dontenwille.  yesterday morning dedicated the  new convent chapel of the-Sisters  of'St. Joseph of Peace. There was  a large gathering - of--interested  friends to -witness the ceremony,  and his lordship gave a very practical .address on the benefits of  education properly directed. t A  little over twelve months ago, on  February 5th, the - good sisters  opened their convent school in  Nelson and met with such a liberal  patronage that no time was lost in  securing a site for ��� a more commodious building. - On the 20th  January last the present convent  was opened, and since that date it  has been educating on an average  100 children, 13 of whom are  boarders. The capacity of the  school rooms is : about 200  pupils, and forty boarders  can . be accommodated. /A The  "dedicatoTy^sefvices^wefe^o^have  taken place some weeks ago, but  owing to the illness of one of the  sisters they were deferred. Yesterday was. St. Joseph's day, the  patron saint of the order, and the  occasion was availed of as a fitting  one on which to dedicate the premises to the service of God. At the  appointed hour the neat little  chapel was well filled and the  bishop, assisted by Rev. father Ferland, proceeded to bless the building  with the usual ceremonials, the sisters and choir chanting the psalms.  After episcopal mass his lordship  briefly addressed those 'present,  pointing out the educational facilities which such . institutions  afforded. The work wasfa labor of  love with the Sisters bf St. Joseph,  and one which was ever earnestly  and faithfully performed. The convent building was a credit to the  city of Nelson, and a* monument to  the energy and faith" df the people.  He dwelt on the advantages of  education properly directed,  adding that to build up a nation-it  was necessary that the heart should  be impressed with righteousness as  well as the head stocked with  knowledge. Training the young in  the paths whicli they should tread  was a work of great importance,  and in this particular the people of  Nelson were fortunate in having  such facilities for attaining this  end. He appealed tb all present to  aid the sisters in their good work  and bespoke for the convent a long  and useful career.  His lordship will remain in Nelson  for a week, during which time there  will be some special services in: the  church. Final vows will also be  taken by a couple of the sisters  during the bishop's stay.  Berlin, March 19.���-During  course of the debate today  third reading of the budget  reichstag, replying to prince  marck's criticism of count  Buelbw's recent speech that  chancellor had insisted too much  on Germany's interests in Manchuria, and that Germany's interest would have suffered even if  -Kiao C'hou had not been leased,  count von Buelow said Germany  had the greatest interest in preventing friction between the  powers now negotiating in China.  Moreover, in eastern Asia Germany  had many interests to safeguard. In  Shan Tun province she had millions  invested. Above all, Germany had  to insist on adequate compensation  being given for the murder of baron  von Ketteler. That was.a question  in which the honor of Germany  was engaged and in which she had  vital interest.  In the course of his speech the  chancellor said: "I have left no  room for the slightest doubt that  no German political interests exist  in Manchuria, but at the same time  I have stated it must naturally be  our desire that China'must not too  surely dimiuish ;"her capacity for  satisfying the. just claims of the  powers for compensation. . That is  not misunderstood in any quarter.-  Two hours- ago I received a de-'  spatch from St. Petersburg, according to which count Lamsdorf, 'the'  Russian minister bf foreign -affairs^  has expressed his satisfaction to  the German-ambassador withvmy  statements ih regard to the Chinese  question."  ; 'The chancellor gave figures illustrative of "the importance of the  trade between Germany and east  Asia, amounting to , 80,000,000  marks. A hundred million marks  are invested in Shan Tung province.  Germany therefore has the greatest  interest in preventing the Chinese  trade from becoming the booty of a  single power or several powers  without her participation.  Count von Buelow also declared  that the center of gravity of Germany's policy remained in Europe  and that she had ho intention of  allowing it to be' displaced while  protecting her interests in Asia.  Subsequently prince Bismarck  declared he had been misunderstood. He really desired to assist  Itlie^hahcelloE It was obvious  that German honor must be vindicated. The chancellor jokingly  thanked prince Bismarck for the  way he had supported him in-his  China measure.  Later the house agreed to the  proposal of the budget committee  to include in the next budget a  credit for 20,000 marks towards instituting chambers of commerce  abroad, although baron von Dich-  tholf, the foreign secretary, deprecated their institution, declaring  that if the establishment of such  chambers in America would be of  any appreciable value Great Britain,  would long siuco have established  them. .

A Chinaman's Logic.  Chicago, March 19. ��� Fu Ling  Fang, Chinese minister to the  United States, delivered "the convocation address of the University  of Chicago at the students theatre  this afternoon before the faculty of  the institution and an audience  that packed the theatre to the  doors. Dr. Wu took for his subject  "Chinese Civilization." His defence  of the civilization of his native  country in comparison with that of  the civilization of the Occident was  much applauded: '  : He said : "True it is that China's  isolation has served to strengthen  the nation's character,.and give it  a marked individuality, but this has  not been gained without great  losses. The most. serious is that  the nation  has not been able to  AN  OFFICIAL    OF    THE     CZAR  STATES THE CASE.  profit by the trials, experiences and  achievements of  the   rest   of the  World.   This is especially true with  scientific knowledge, and mechanical   inventions.     It   must   be admitted that today China   is centuries behind the age in her knowledge    of    chemistry,    electricity,  steam navigation, rapid transit and  other arts and sciences.   But does  civilization   consist   of    railroads,  telegraphs,     telephones,   "electric  lights, battleships, rapid fire guns,  magazine rifles anda thousand and  one things which   are regarded as  necessary for a progressive nation.

Chinese ways are not  necessarily bad because they often  seem strange to western eyes. It  is merely a question whether one. is  accustomed to them or not.  "When the old original civilization meets the new occidental  civilization it is to be- expected  there will be a clash, but which will  have to give way to the other is by  no means certain, for the race is  not always to the swift, nor the  battle to the strong."  Worth Winning.  Boston, March 19.���Thomas W.  Lawson, in a statement tonight accepts the off er. of Mr. 'Scannel, the  owner of The Abbott, for a race for  "the sum of $250,000." He also  suggests conditions agreeable to  him. The statement reviews3 the  refusal of Mr. Scannel to match The  Abbott against Boralma. Mr. Law-  son says:  "I will accept his proposition to  race Boralma against either The'  Abbott or'Lord Derby for the. sum  of $250,000, although I think it is  more than, any horse should race  for, upon the following conditions:  . "The race to take place .in ;Sep-  tember, oyer.an -association .track,  which J will name; the" gate'receipts,  which I guarantee,'wiirbe"$25i00'0,'  to be given to" charities; $25,000 to  be deposited upon signing articles  of agreement, which must be signed  on or before March' 23rd; $25,000 to  be deposited July 1st, and the remainder the night before the race,  all deposits to be forfeited by the  horse not coming to the wire race-  day.

Washington, March 19.���United  States consul Bittinger at Montreal  has forwarded a report ou the  postal service of Canada. He says  that on letters to the United Kingdom and numerous British possessions and protectorates postage has  been .rejd.uced_undeiLthe-presentj.da,  ministration to two cents per half  ounce, the same rate as to the  United States. The report of the  service for the last fiscal year, says  the consul-general, shows a deficit  of $401,001; 9G27 postoflices were in  operation; 17S,299,500 letters were  posted, and money orders aggregating $10,209,OOS were issued. The  money orders showed an increase  of $1,741,071 over JS99. The people  of the province of* Ontario posted  moro letters and postal cards than  all the rest of Canada together.  Longshoremen Strike.  Naples, March 19.���Two thousand five hundred dock laborers  have struck, refusing to discharge  the French steamer Masilia, which  arrived at Marseilles March 14th  from New York and was sent on  from Marseilles to Naples on account of the strike at Marseilles.  Contesting Boat Crews.  London, March 19.���The Oxford  crew rowed over the full course  from Putney to Mortlake this morning in 20 minutes. 50 seconds on a  rough flood tide. The Cambridge  crew covered the same distance on  Saturday on an ebb tide in 20  minutes 48 seconds.  Railroad Collision.  Nebraska City, Nebraska, March  19.���In a tail-end collision between  a ��� passenger and a freight train  on the Burlington ��fc Missouri road  near Johnson tonight, one man was  killed and three others injured.  Both trains were badly wrecked.  Snow in England.  London, March 10.���A fierce snow  storm swept over Lancashire this  afternoon. ��  dent of the Associated Press, a coih"-  petent official today said: "It is not  true that Russia has yielded to tho  representations of any of the powers  and has modified her demands  re-  spectiug Manchuria, because no representations    have     been     made.  Every tentative   move   to address"  the Russian government on the subject of our pour parlers with China  has   been   categorically    declined.  Russia is a great power and has no  right to hold negotiations with any  other   government   and no   other  power   has a   right   to   interfere.  Soundings   made    in   a    friendly  spirit   have   received" a    friendly  answer, but, plainly stated, Russia  cannot receive inquiries  regarding  the above pour parlers." -The  results thereof will doubtless be made  known later.   The informant of the  correspondent    of  the   Associated  Press admitted that the power rebuffed was Great Britain.   He was ,  not willing to discuss details   respecting   Mongolia or   Turkestan,  but he repeated that Russia abides  by. the august declaration   and desires to safeguard the railroad and  -  her thdusand-kilometer-long frontier.  The informant of the correspondent ridiculed the talk of a militarv  conflict   at   Tien   Tsin.     He   said:  " There is a misunderstanding about '  certain   lands   which   the English  authorities pretend  belong to the ;  railway com pa"ny."'Russia- has. ex> ~  ^pressed her willingness-to examine  the question.    If the claim of ownership before the  Russian  occupa-   ,  tion is established that will end the  discussion.    If diplomacy is  unable  to settle the controversy,'Russia is  willing to submit it to  arbitration,  perhaps to The Hague tribunal or  to some other arbitrator.  After England captures Dewet-,  perhaps, she will have the courage  for a military conflict in another  quarter of the world. While he is  promenading around the British  forces it is hardly probable that  England will seek trouble elsewhere.        The Wheat Tariff.  Montreal, March 19.���The Star's  London cable says : "Muloek has  ,been^conferring-=with-=the=colouial���  office and other departments. Ho  leaves London on Thursday and expects to pay two or three visits on  the continent on his way to Marseilles, where he will embark on the  Himlays for Australia. Special interest attaches to Mulock's visit by  reason of the expectation in certain  quarters that the chancellor of tho  exchequer may restore Sir Robert  Peel's registration charges of one  shilling per quarter on wheat and  by exempting Canadian and other  colonial wheat and make some imperial recognition of Canada's  preferential tariff." A British  minister of the crown when asked  whether the chancellor was likely  to take this step said: " Every  British ministry is in superstitious  dread of raising the revenue in any  shape on wheat."  Sir Charles Tupper returned to  London Saturday after a visit to  Germany.   Vancouver Mass Meeting.

IA  II"*-  \u  IN  li';l  If*  IN  li: H  m  [_ At no time has The TiunuNE.been  �� ;uilty of suggesting that sources of  ! merriment lay hidden in the-pro*  ! posal of "Ed" McKay, the cigar  ; drummer, to establish a refinery in  ' Kootenay. The head and front-of  ] Tin. Tribune's offending was. in  .! suggesting, as delicately as possible,  , the improbability of a cigar drummer doing anything of the kind.  . The mistake which the Miner re-  ! oorter made was one which almost  ��� auy reporter might make, but the  I;��ime excuse cannot cannot be held  ; nit for the author of the risible  ; absurdity which did duty for a  - eader in Tuesday's issue of that  ��� journal. ��� .  The     Vancouver   World     says  ' James J.  Hill has nothing to gain  by retarding mining in British Col-  ambia, from whose mines  he expects a considerable tonnage for his  ���ail way system.     Aside from the  i doubtful policy of even placing it  n the power of Mr. Hill  to retard  ���yhe growth of any industry in British Columbia, it may be pointed out  ihat when he has perfected his cor-  ucr on the coal fields of East.Kootenay, Mr. Hill's interests will lie in  *,vhe   direction   of   smelting  every  pound   of   Slocan   galena   in   the  United States.    If Mr. Hill secures  his railway charter and taps the  coal   fields of   East Kootenay his  railway interests, even aside from  any   understanding he may have  with   the   United   States   smelter  trust, will call  for the moving of  the   coal   and   coke   to  American  smelters, thus insuring his railways  the entire haul, as against  giving  business   to the Canadian   Pacific  railway in moving fuel to the British   Columbia    smelters.        Then,  again, the closing of   the British  Columbia   smelters    would    make  business   for   Mr.  Hill's   railways,  since it would give him the moviug  of the Slocan ores to  United States  smelters, as well as tho East Kootonay fuel, and also give the added  business of moving the lead bullion  from the United States smelters to  the refineries.    So loug as the Slocan" ores are treated in Canadian  smelters   Mr.   Hill's   railways   get  none of the fuel tonnage, none of  the ore tonnage and none of the  bullion tonnage; but if he can close  the Canadian smelters he can get it  all.    This simple presentation of the  case should satisfy any reasonable  person, that upon tho basis  of Mi-,  Hill's interests, it is not altogether  safe to entrust the future development of British Columbia to  his  keeping.   Capta in Cm viz Phillips- Wolley  has given his evidence before the  Chinese and Japanese immigration  commission. Put into a few words  captain Wolley says he considers  the presence of Chinese inimical to  the health and general welfare of  the white population, and from a  labor standpoint he regards the  Japanese as more dangerous than  the Chinese, owing to their remarkable powers of application. Captain  Wolley says he would favor exclusion of both races, but if the welfare of the empire would be involved in such a course he would be  prepared to sacrifice British Columbia.     "y.'  The provincial legislature will  simply waste its time in considering protection-clauses to the Crow's  Nest. Southern railway bill. /If the  railway- is ever built it will Require  a Dominion charter, and-once this  is secured,.the company'operating  it'will "shake off obnoxious conditions as.easily ras" the Nelson.&  Fort :Sheppard. railway shook off-  the applied provisions of the British  Columbia Railway Act. The only  sale course for "the legislature to  pursue is to defer action upon the  charter until a royal commission  can inquire into the effect the  granting of such a charter  would have upon the mining and  smelting industry of the province,/  Mayor- Fletcher has transmitted to Messrs. Houston, Tatlow  and Smith Curtis the views of the  Rough on Those Delegates.  Greenwbcd Miner.  Companies backed by the Great  Northern and Canadian Pacific railways are now asking the provincial  legislature for charters granting exclusive rights to build a railway  from Boundary tli rough the rich  mining and agricultural districts  wost to the coast. The final result  as to which company will be successful is a matter of dollars. Tho  Great Northern was able to carry a  resolution at tho meeting of the  Associated Boards of Trade which,  if concurred in by a majority of the  legislature, would make the whole  mining region of southern British  Columbia tributary to the Hill  system. When this can be done  with representative business men, a  majority of whom aro British subject?, it is not unreasonable to presume that if the C. P. 11. really  wants a charter that they will go  to as great lengths in their endeavors to convince members of the  legislature as the Great Northern  Railway Company and the Crow's  Nest Coal Company did with some  of the delegates to the,.meeting, of  ne Associated Boards of Trade.  flew Spring  Underwear  Just Received from Factory  our new up-to-date stock of  HATS  .

W. B. Mclnnes describedthein-  exhaustable wealth of the Crow's  Nest Pass coal fields the Globe led  the laughter whicli greeted his estimate of. the resources which were  being alienated from the country.  The facts and figures which were  fabric of Mr. Mclnnes' vision in  1897 have becomo the realities of  senator Cox's description of the  C ow's Nest Pass coal fields in 1901.  When W. W. B.

Slocan View of the Trick.  Sandon Mining Review.  Senator Cox, who is largely interested in the Crow's Nest Pass  coal mines, must be a versatile  genius. He urges a charter to the  Hill railway to the coal fields, and  ,then says the export of coal to the  American smelters can be stopped  by an export duty on coal���all of  which shows he is more or less of a  humbug as well as a man of versatility. The idea is simply' this:  First get tho outlet to the American smelters built, and then bring  influence cto bear on the federal  government to stop them from  doing, what he- now says' can-be^  done���granting the export duty.

On a grassy hillside, four miles  from the busy, mill-buzzing town of  Ware, in the western pai"fc of the  state of Massachusetts, an army of  one hundred thousand frogs will  next season be. croaking. And all  this to satisfy tlie demands of college laboratories and to find delectable dishes for the palate-weary,  mayhap.- One hundred thousand  frogs in one town has caused the"  inhabitants to protest. Mr. Merrill, who is starting the frog farm,  makes this statement about it: "I  don't see why the people of this  town make so decided a stand  against .the project," said he, "for  the farm will be located several  miles from the town, and surely the  singing of the frogs will not be audible to them." Mr. Merrill was  the only one who . referred to the  music of the frogs as singing. "The  origin of this frog raising," he says;  "dates back a good many years, for  there are already two frog farms,  ��as they are called, which are recognized as successful business ventures. One of these is being operated in California and the other in  Florida '  "There is a great difference, liow;  ever, betvveeu this methods employed lriftiiesotwo farms and the  way in which we expect to raise  frogs. One has very little notion  of the vast numbers of frogs which  are annually used in this way," said  he, "for"the prevailing idea is that  the only market for frogs is the  =tableW=Harvard=colIegie=jalon^lVsel,  annually ten thousand of these  little animals for dissecting purposes, and other institutions, of  learning throughout the country  use proportionate numbers. Great  difficulty has been experienced by  those who secure the frogs in getting them, and for the past three  years the Harvard frogs have all  come from South Carolina.' It  seems to me that a frog farm, "a  place where frogs could be bred,  would be a paying investment in  this part of the country, for the  average price paid per frog is ten  cents. -  " The frog-raising business is as  yet in a very rudimentary state.  All that .4$ known about ffogs is  that they'iiVe in water and mud,  and it stands to reason that if .the  eggs of a frog are placed in stagnant water, which is filled with  crustacea and the lower, forms of  animal life for food, the frogs will  hatch and a proportion of them  live. Now, one of the main obstacles which confronts us is that it  is in the winter that the frogs are  most wanted by the colleges for  scientific purposes. The frog hibernates in the mud, far below the  point which is reached by frost,  and when winter really sets in Mr.  Frog is in a, natural stronghold,  from which it. would require - great  labor to remove him. .For that  reason we avoided swampy land for  I the site of our farm, for in winter  this   would   freeze   tight,, and al-  ] though most people would imagine,  that a swamp was just the place to  I raise these animals in, we consider  [ifc the worst possible.  "These frogs we will place in a  tank especially prepared* for  their  SAVINGS BANK DEPARTMENT:  Interest allowed  on  deposits.    Present rate  three per cent. ���  GRANGE V. HOLT,  Manager Nelson Branch.  reception,   as   soon   as   they    are  brought to the farm, and here they  will hibernate wheu winter  comes.  Tlie mud at the bottom of the tank  will not freeze, owing to the fact  that the water will be   kept   deep  enough so that  it  will  not   freeze  solid.   This will eliminate all the  labor which would be necessary if  we were to plant the frogs in the  marsh.   When we receive an order  for some frogs the water will be  drained from the tank, leaving the  muddy bottom   exposed to   view.  Blocks of mud will be dug  up and-  taken to the 'thawing-room,' a well  heated chamber in the house which  we are erecting on the farm, 'and  left to grow warm. /  '���When the heat reaches the frogs  themselves they will soon come out  from the mud, and after tliey have  been well washed and crated, they  will be in excellent condition to  ship to their destination. Of course,  we expect to injure, perhaps kill, a  great many of the animals in digging them out of the mud, but in  that event we can sell the legs to  hotels and markets, so that the  actuaMoss will be small. I always  thought the song of' a. frog was  musical and soothing.

Four days after the battle,  in which 100 warriors and 120  women and children were killed,  the little girl, then five months old,  was found, partly ; frozen and  covered with snow, in her mother's  papoose-frame. She wasv the only  live thing on the battle field. The  Unc-Papas called her "Great Bird,"  the Sioux "Child of the Battlefield."  Are you needing goods in our line?

Already there is a cloud hovering,  over the wedding of queen Wilhelmina to prince Henry���not any  domestic difficulty, of course, but  "Heintje," as the Dutch call him, is  very unpopular. - Prince Henry  does not receive one penny from  the Dutch civil list. He is, therefore, a gratis consort, general' and  admiral. But as he sacrificed a  career in marrying and staying in  the Netherlands, the queen can afford to support him���and she does.  Yet the Dutch grumble, although  the consort costs them nothing. On  the whole the prince is not a bad  .fellow, either. He is about twenty--  |four years of age, has light golden'  'hair and his complexion shows that  he is not afraid to go but in all  kinds of weather. Though he is  homely and his manner is ungraceful, he looks honest.. He has a will  of his own, but he will have little  use'for it in his present position.  He has a itork^dj^it^y^air.^and^  "asTtlie Dutch people hate the very  look of drill', thi9;is against him.  They have nicknamed him  "Jagei','.': -which means-a hunter,  and also a:hotel errand boy:���Other  nicknames, are - "Coachman"* 'and  "Englishman;" Tlie principal reason,  for his unpopularity is"- said to be  jealousy. As hard-working people  are inclined to be jealous of the  penniless husbands of great heiresses,-so the Dutch are jealous of  their queen's mate. They adored  her, and thought she belonged to  them alone, until this man robbed  them of her-affections,1 as they look  at the matter. A few* days after  his arrival at The Hague Heintje  dismissed a few'of the queen's most  trusted servants. Her people were  disappointed because she did not  defend them. ..He came very near  dismissing an old coachman who  had driven the queen ever since she  was a baby.*  Another charge against him is  that he shot at Loo, a tame pet  deer of the young queen. That's  how he got the name of "Jager," no  doubt unjustly. The Dutch say  that he imperiled the queen's life  by compelling her to sit on the box  seat of' a mail coach and driving  her through the city with four  fiery, untrained horses. The coach  was wedged in an alley aud ifc took  a number of men to pull it out  backward. The Dutch would not  forgive Heintje for exposing the  life of their beloved queen in this  manner. From this drive originated the nicknames "Coachman"  and "Englishman,"  A Soldier's Indian Ward.  Little Zintka Lanuni, the little  Unc-Papas Sioux waif found by the  A Costly Wager.  Had James Buchanan Fleshman  of Philadelphia lost a bet which he  made some months ago with Samuel  P. Iluhn he would have been $2,212  richer than he is today. True, he  won a $1000 election bet, but by  the terms of the wager he gave a  dinner last week at the Hotel Flanders that cost him, says the Philadelphia Press, $3,112. Said Mr.  Huhn- five months ago: "One thousand dollars that Quay will be defeated for the senatorship. Has  any one the nerve to meet it?" "I  don't know, sail," said Mr. Flesh-  man, a southerner, "if I have the  nerve, but, sab, I have the thousand." The bet was made, the winner to give a dinner. The champagne, cigar and cigarette items  alone cost $1080.  A Cuban Treasurer.  Washington, March 18.���In accordance with president McKinley's  recent order that the treasurer - of  Cuba should be a citizen of that  island, governor-general Wood today cabled to the war department  that he had appointed Carlos ^Rolos  as treasurer of Cuba. Mr. Rolos  previously had been connected with  the fiscal branch and is. considered  well qualified for this important  post. Secretary Boot confirmed  the appointment.  A Shipyard Fire.  Port Huron, Michigan, March  19v��� Fire early today destroyed the  Jencks shipbuilding plant, entailing  a loss of over $175,000.

'  The window awnings on several  stores along Baker street were let  down for the first time this century  yesterday. They gave the thoroughfare quite'R summer appearance.  Jake Sisson, who has been in the  ,geueral hospital for the past couple  of weeks, is about again. He had  an operation performed while in  the institution, the second of recent  date.  Collector MeLeod started out  with his receipt books yesterday  morning and succeeded in -doing a  good day's business. He has all the  city rates and a good deal of arrears  to gather in.

The curling stones and other properties of the Nelson Curling Club  have been removed from the rink  and stored for safe keepiug-until  next season. ''There will be a meeting of the club some evening this  week to wind up the business of the  season, when the secretary-treasurer  will have the privilege of reporting  a very satisfactory balance sheet.  Robert Seaton, who sustained a  serious accident while working at  the Molly Gibson mine oh the 16th  November last and who has since  been in the general hospital, was  discharged yesterday and leaves  this morning for Seattle. Seaton is  on crutches and will probably not  be able to do without them for  some weeks to come.  A meeting of the Nelsou branch  of the Mine-owners' Association was  heldyesterday-for-the -purpose - of-  considering the resolution passed  by the city council on Monday  evening, which recited that before  granting the Hill railway charter  the provincial legislature should  appoint a royal commission to inquire into the effect of such action.  The meeting was attended by a  couple of mine owners, a few who  hope to become mine owners, and a  few who somo time since were em-,  ployed by mine owners, but tho result of their deliberations was not  made public.  Flour Mill for Nelson.  A meeting of the board of public  works is called for Friday, when  seveViit" petitions for public improvements will "be considered.  Among other matters to come before the bdkfd is" au application on  tlie part of a Regina miller for a  mill site and Water rights on the  flat below the city electric power  house.' If these concessions be  made the gentleman in question  undertakes to put up a 200-barrel  mill this summer, and to operate  the same continuously. Ifc is  claimed for the ^project that the  water at present running to waste  from the dam will be sufficient to  run a mill, and that with flour  ground in Nelson the price of this  commodity would be considerably  reduced���at least $1 per hundredweight. The freight on grain from  the wheat growing districts of the  Northwest to the mills at the Lake  of the Woods would not-be less  than that which would land it here  in Nelson. If this be so, the manufacture of flour iu Nelson ought to  materially reduce the price to con- i  j sinners. 1  Smelter Trouble the Cause.  With reference to the shutting  down of the Highland mine at Ainsworth the management of tlie company assign as their sole reason  that with prevailing prices for silver and the existing smelter  charges they could not run at a  profit. Mr. Laing Stocks said yesterday that everything at the mino  was in good shape and that it never  looked better. The mill was running smoothly and treating 100  tons per day, and with an addition  of two moro jigs and two extra  whifllers its capacity would bo  doubled. Two months ago when  the property was taken over, the  outlook was most encouraging, but  the fall in the market and' the smelter difficulties had altered the conditions completely. There is  enough' ore, on the dump to keep  the mill going for a couple of  months yet, after which time, unless conditions alter materially,  operations will be entirely suspended. Mr. Stocks declares that with  a refinery in this country conditions would be completely changed  and many mines afc present closed  down would be running at full  blast. He added that it was probable his company might be obliged  to send its ore to Swansea for treatment, as they could have it handled  cheaper in the old country after  paying freight charges, etc. "The  Highlander has been run most economically" said Mr. Stocks1 to a  Trihune reporter. "Five men have  been handling 100 tons of ore daily  ���tramming, milliug aud everything for shipping. We have only  one man at the tram. The machinery is all of tho best up-to-date  and if under such favorable conditions we cannot work afc a profit,  there is no course open but to close  down." About forty men have  been laid of..  A LIVELY SMALLPOX SCARE  ^ELsonsr  KASLO  s-A.isr3DOJsr  Of Short Duration.'  A weary traveler over the Crow's  Nest line arrived at the Hume hotel  yesterday afternoon and having  duly registered repaired to his room.  He looked a sick, man, and thinking  a diagnosis ..of hjis case might not  hurt the gentleman or the reputation of tho house for caution in accepting guests^, coming from an  infected area,.a. doctor was summoned. Dr. Symonds promptly responded. He saw the traveler, a  Frenchman, and had a talk with  him, the result'of which was that  the case was. pronounced one of  fatigue and. rest was the simple  remedy prescribed. The hotel corridor was a busy spot at the time  and the tables in the billiard room  we're having the balls rattled over  them in the presence of a large  number of interested spectators.  All saw or heard of the visit of the  doctor and of the sick mau. Just  then Dr. LaBau, the medical sani-  tarV officer, put in an appearance  and requested to see the new arrival^ Immediately there were  whispdrs of smallpox and quarantine Guests_about^_to._leave_the_  house promptly seized their baggage and made a hasty retreat; all  interested in billiards and pool  promptly ceased and the room was  cleared; the office was quickly left;  without one of the many who a  moment before ' were deeply engrossed in the newspapers and conversation, and the Hume hotel generally presented a very unbusinesslike appearance. All had cleared  out in anticipation of quarantine  proceedings. However the uneasiness on this point ' was soon dissipated���the new arrival was pronounced to be free from contagious  disease. But ifc took a couple of  hours to appease the agitation  which the'"'incident occasioned.  When the old-patrons of the house  returned to their rendezvous, they  of course avowed the greatest contempt for the" man who would be  easily scared:  The Nelson Quoit Club.....  The first general meeting of the  Reason of the Nelson Quoit Club was  held last night. There was ,a good  attendance of. members' and. considerable enthusiasm was manifested. The providing;' 6f suitable  grounds for practice was discussed  and several suitable sites suggested,  a committee being appointed to report. It was decided to hold the  first match of the year on Good  Friday, the contestants to be teams  to be selected by the president and  vice-president, who will captain  them. respectively. The season's ���  work js started under very favorable auspices. Persons wishing to  join can do so- by paying an entrance fee of $1 and handing in.  their names to J. H. Wallace the  president, or G. Nunn, secretary.       i  STOVES!   STOVES!    STOVES!  HEATING STOVES, COOKING STOVES, AND STEEL RANGES    "   "B6?
