C, TUESDAY, APRIL 2, 1901  PRICE FIVE CENTS  TELEPHONIC AND ELECTRIC  TROUBLE OVER STRINGING WIRES  ON CITY POLES.  Busy Night With the Board of Aldermen and Some Important Work  Accomplished.  There was a full attendance of  members at the weekly meeting of  the city council last evening, and as  all tho available seats were occupied several ratepayers who were  present on business were obliged to  stand throughout the. proceedings.  It was suggested by alderman  Irving that a few chairs be purchased���a suggestion which met  with general approval.  The finance committee recommended the payment of bills  amounting to $2945, which was  adopted.  The public works committee\  recommended that a 0-foot sidewalk be laid on the west side of  Baker street, from Mill to Hoover  street, instead of. on' the east side  as previously proposed; that Hoover-  street be opened up from Josephine  > to Cedar street, and that a sidewalk  be laid to Hendryx, on the east side  of Hoover.  This item was discussed at length,  and finally referred to the city engineer for an estimate of cost.  , The next clauses were that a six-  foot sidewalk be, laid on the east  side of Mines road, from Stanley to  Hoover, and on the north side to  the Tramway Company's barn; that  the roadway at the intersection of  Park and Front -streets be graded  so as" to render it passable for  teams; that the proposal of Quo  Wong Chang to lay. a crossing from  Josephine street to Lake street at  his own expense be approved; that  a path be made on the east side-of-  Hendryx street from Victoria to  Silica street.  There was considerable discussion  on this latter clause as to the difficulty of grade, and it was thrown  out. _    ���  The committee further recommended that a 15-fooc sidewalk be  laid on the north side of Baker  street from, Cottonwood " creek  bridge to Fall street.  The mayor explained that Roderick Robertson' consented to have,  the   grade of   his lot   encroached  upon so as to facilitate the laying  of the sidewalk.  ..Under these circumstances it was  , decided to proceed with the  work.  * A   petition   was read from the  ���residents   in the neighborhood of  Willow   street   and Water  street  asking that an offensive ditch there  ibejlled up.   Referred to the city  ���engineer. ;  W. N. Rolff and others wrote asking that the alleyway at block B,;  East Baker, street, be cleared. This  was referred to the board of  works.  McLaughlin Brothers wrote asking a share of the city's hardware  business. Since opening business  over a year ago the firm had only  received $1 worth of patronage  from the council.  There was a general expression  of opinion that the patronage  tshould be divided.  W. E. Cole, wrote asking for a  ���water service to his house in Hume  Addition. The application was referred to tlie proper ..committee....  G. C. Hodge '.appeared on behalf  of the Kootenay Lake Telephone  .Co. with: reference to the recom-  meii^tibn.ol' the fire,.light and  water committee that the company, discontinue the use of the  .city's electric light poles. He explained that the agreement between  '.'���the company and the city had unfortunately gone astray, either  .through ihe mail or in the office of  thecompany's solicitors at Victoria;  hence the delay in ratifying it. - Mr.  Bodge read correspondence with  3iis principals bearing out this  statement,, and asked, for a further  postponement of action on the committee's report."  Alderman Selous pointed out that  this was not a -question of agreement���it was one as to whether or  not the council should approve of  the report bf the fire, water and  light committee recommending that  the telephone company be denied  the use of the poles-upon which the  city electric wires are strung.  Mr. Hodge contended that the  stringing of the wires did not inter- 1  fere with the city service, while it  avoided the necessity of erecting a  large number of poles on the public  streets. His company, on the  strength of an agreement with the  city, which agreement unfortunately had been mislaid, had spent  hundreds of dollars in putting in  new wires and generally improving  their service. He contended that  it would be a great hardship on  them, having invested so largely, to  be called upon to pull the work  down again. It was no injury to  the city service.  Alderman Selous���-But the supr  erintendent says it is.  Superintefc^ntMcPhee said that  the stringiBB^M^fcBhalflphone wires  and 25 cents per pos^pl^Hw was  nothing like compensationior the  use of the city poles.  Mr. Hodge explained that 25 cents  was the rate fixed by the council,  not by his company, who were fully  prepared to enter into any fair  agreement with the city for the use  of its poles. It should be remembered that his company charged  the city nothing for the use of their  poles.  Alderman Selous pointed out that  while three or four wires  were strung by the eity there were  30 or more used by the telephone  company.  _ After a good deal further discussion the subject was referred back  tb the fire, water and light committee.  The mayor reported that he had  accepted the highest offer made for  the city debentures, and arrangements were now being.perfected for  the payment of the money at  Nelson.  Alderman Selous drew attention  to the abominally filthy condition*  of the alleyway at the rear of the  Chinese houses, near Say ward's and  Riblet's. Hecould not understand  why such an accumulation of filth  could have been tolerated. There  were nine inches deep of liquid  filth of the most offensive natuie  in the alleyway.  . The matter was referred to the  -.sanitary, officer.   ���'-'"������ A  - -"  Attention was also called to 'the"  filthy condition of, the ravine at  Ward street opposite the opera  house. It was stated that Jowett,  the owner of the property, was  away in England.  Alderman Gillett suggested that  the attention of the agent should  be called to the matter, and steps  taken to compel him to have the  nuisance abated.  Alderman Patterson remarked  that the ravine south of the Hume  Hotel was also in a bad way.  It was decided to have the complaints attended to.  Some routine business " brought  proceedings to a close.  Cuban Affairs.  Washington,7 April 1.���Senator  Proctor of Vermont has just returned from Cuba, where he has  ^been^making^observations^concern^  ing conditions in the: island. The  senator says there is a disposition  among many leading Cubans to accept the terms of the Platte amendments. Others are trying to convince the Cubans that the United  States intend to do them a-great injustice. According to;senator Proctor the latter class are not making  much progress, especially, he says,  as the delegates to the commission  are now hearing from their constituents, the large proportion of  whom are anxious for a settlement  of all political relations with the  United, States, and urge the delegates to accept the offers of this  government.  ' ' Salisbury Improving.  London, April. lv^-The private  secretary, of lord Salisbury, Schom-  berg McDowell, informs the Associated Press that the premier is  making excellent progress and there  is no truth in the statement that  his physicians have discovered  symptoms of Bright's disease or  any other complication. He is still-  somewhat weak as the result of influenza, but expects to start for the  Riviera at the end of the week,- ���  Wages Increased,--������:'.���_>.-..  Pottstown, Pa., April l.^The  puddlers in the employ of the-  Glasgow Iron Co! have been notified  that beginning next Saturday their  rate-of wages will be $3.25 instead  of $3.00 as heretofore. The wages  of other employees will also be increased. The 112 inch plate mill of  the company's plant, which has  long been idle, resumed operations  today.         A strong will is firmness; a strong  won't is obstinacy. . ,  THE PUBLIC INSTITUTIONS  OF   NELSON   AND   THEIR   WORK  DURING MAROH.  Public    Schools���Custom    House���Library���Fire Department���Police.  Jail���General Hospital.  The month of March in the public  institutions of Nelson was a fairly  busy   one.    The   old- saying  that  March "comes in like a lion and  goes out like a lamb," was somewhat reversed on the present occasion, as exceptionally good  weather prevailed until the closing  day, when Nelsonites were treated  to a heavy snow fall, although they  had bid adieu to the "beautiful"  three weeks before.  . The Public Schools.  The average attendance at the  public schools during   the month  was 228.12" which is slightly below  that of the corresponding period of  last   year.    However,   for   several  days ' during" the  excitement that  prevailed over the presence of a  couple of diphtheria cases in town,  thd attendance was not half what  it ought to have been, and this fact  goes to reduce the month's average.  Then,'again, the establishment of a  branch of the high school, reduces  the number usually attending the  senior grades. Receiving the higher  curriculum there are 20 pupils, who  have been regular attendants since  this   branch was   inaugurated   in'  January   last.     There   is   a   very  .general impression that the school-.  house and grounds require a little  more attention.   Sanitary arrangements are not all that might be expected, while the approaches to the  school are, in wet weather, far from.,  satisfactory.   The. little .ones - are  obliged to wade.' through, mud and  slush'," there" being* but one planked  walk to the front entrance.  The Custom House.  The returns for the month at the  port of -Nelson were as follows :  Dutiable Import value 967,315  Froo import value -.     9 207   $7*0,522   $10403 71  Total ...  Duty collected  Public Library.  During the month the average  daily attendance at the public,  library and reading room was 95.  This is a decrease as compared with  the previous"month, but the altered  conditions explain the situation. In  February there were more idle men  in town, and this is the class which  chiefly avail themselves of the  advantages which the reading room  and library afford. Yesterday, for  =ih��trac��rtHB=TOoMs^TOre~crowliedss=  many enjoying a whiff in  the smoking room, the daily papers  and magazines in the reading room,  or a game of checkers���with men  who were not working in consequence of the inclemency of the  weather. This is always -the case  under similar conditions. The  library was well patronized during  the month, and in this connection it  might be well to suggest that per-,  sons having books' which they have  read arid not collecting same with  the object of forming a library for  themselves, migh| hand the literature over for the benefit of the  public institution. Such gifts will  at all times be thankfully received  and gratefully acknowledged. The  library quarters are very comfortable, and the free attractions which  they afford are flilly appreciated  by. all who avail themselves of thera.  Fire Department,���������.  The fire brigade had - but -.five  alarms rung in during March, excluding the practice calls. On  March there was a call to the  general hospital; no damage. Not  till the 21st did the fire^ bell ring  again summoning the brigade to a  chimneyblaze: down., down. Then  on the 22nd they were out again to  a fire at Dr.. Form's residence, the  damage in which case was.;, trifling.  They next responded tO' an alarm  from the Nelson Saw & Planning  Mills, and here also but little damage  .was done. The last call for the  month was to a chimney fire in the  Office saloon���damage nil.  Police.  There were 15 arrests for drunkenness during the month, 3 for as*  sault, X for vagrancy, 1 for damage  to property, 3 for disorderly conduct, 8 for thef t, 1 for breach of  the fire bylaw. It will be observed  that dritnknness and disorderly conduct���the one arising out of the  other���caused.iriore trouble to the  police than an^'other class of offence. Only one case of vagrancy  in a month is a record of which  Nelson may well be proud.  ProvincialJail, l  During the month. there were  seven admitted to; the provincial  jail under various terms of sentence.  In all 14 prisoners %ere discharged,  leaving 23 now under loct and-key.;  Hospital.      ' ���      ;   "; .  There were 62 patients admitted  to the hospital during the month-,  and but 22 now remain, the difference between the figures having  been discharged, cured or improving, with the exception of a couple  of deaths. Fully one-third of the  patients were surgical cases. *  COUNT TOLSTOI BANISHED  ESCORTED TO THE FRONTIER BY  GENDARMES.  Must Wake Up.  London, April 1.���The Cape Town  correspondent of the Daffy Mail,  after referring to the fact* that the  Cape government was compelled  last year to have recourse to the  United States - and' Germany, for  locomotives and trucks, says: British manufactories must wake up, as  further large orders for steel rails  shortly will be given, out to relay  the permanent way after the heavy  war traffic. There is also certain  to be a big development in light  railways in outlying portions of the  colony.      '  WAS RULED OUT OF ORDER  THE NELSON MEMBER EXPLAINS  HIS RESOLUTION.  Curtis' Want   of Confidence Measure  Sat Upon���Land for Volunteers.  Legislative Notes.  Victoria, April 1.���[Special' to  The Tribune.]���Houston's resolution  that in the opinion of the house the  Crow's Nest Southern railway  should be undertaken a9 a provincial public work was ruled out of  order this afternoon. In moving  the resolution, Houston said it was  the plain duty of ~the government  to build tho road, seeing the  metalliferous mining industry  would be in jeopardy if there was a  shortage of coke or coal at local  smelters. If the government built  the road there could be no question  of its controlling its operation, so  that even-handed justice should be  done both the coal company and  the smelter owners.  On a want of confidence resolution regarding the government's  railway policy, Curtis of Rossland  spoke for two hours. He claimed  the people of Kootenay wanted a  direct competing railway to the  coast; that.they preferred an independent railway that would be  competitive, even if a bonus had to  be given by the province to aid its  construction, to a road built by the  C. P. R. without a bonus. He was  told by the member' from Nelson that he had better' resign his  seat in the house in order to test  the feeling of his constituents. He  declined to make, the test, however,  saying he had not time to make a  proper canvass. Curtis is cordially  disliked because, he interferes in  other ridings than his own in matters that in no. way concern him.  His resolution was defeated 25 to  11.  The commissioner;;; of lands and  works has introduced^ a bill granting 100 acres of land, to all volunteers who went from British Columbia to South Africa.  It is currently reported that the:  house will, adjourn on Wednesday  till Tuesday the 16th. The government will then be in a-position to  bring down the estimates and rush  through the business of the session.  * Today's Times gives currency to  the rumor that Mr. Turner will resign his seat immediately after he  delivers his budget speech and that  he will then go to London as agent  general and that R Gosnell will accompany him as chief clerk.  James F. Wardner is here. He is  now engaged, in mining on Prince of  Wales island.  Dr. LaBau left for Nelson tonight.  Slayer of Minister of Public Instruction Sentenced to Twenty Tears  in Siberia.  St. Petersburg, April; 1.���It  was rumored several days ago, but  generally disbelieved, that count  Leo Tolstoi had been banished from  Russia because of the attempted  assassination of. privy councillor  Pobiedonostzoff, chief procurator of  the'Hbly Synod (who was shot at  early in the morning of .March 22nd,  while sitting in his study), the  attempt being attributed to a desire  for revenge, growing out of the  excommunication of count Tolstoi.  Owing to the indefiniteness of the  rumor it was disregarded by the  correspondent here of the Associated Press. ' Now, however, the  correspondent has received a private letter from a usually- trustworthy source, in Vilna, capital of  the government of that name, saying that count Tolstoi was reported  to'- have passed through Vilna,  March 26th, being escorted to the  frontier by two gendarmes.  Gets Twenty Years. .  St. Petersburg, April 1.���The  trial of Peter Karrovich, the assassin of M. Bogoliroff, the Russian  minister)of public instruction (who,  as cabled to the" Associated Press  last night, has been sentenced to 20  years' penel servitude with a loss of  civil rights) was strictly secret.  Admittance was only by--card.  Among,those���preserit were the, ministers of justice, of the interior, arid  of finance. Only .50 cards'were distributed. Karrovich spoke for an i  hour... .regarding..-, the, student's;  trouble under -Bogoliroff'"anchrthe  disorganization of the university/  The prisoner ��� characterized Bogoliroff,-whom he knew as the "curator  at Moscow,in 1896, as the "baneful  spirit of reaction."   . '��� '.  ��� Karrovich declared he was indifferent when shooting whether  Bogoliroff would be killed, desiring  in any case to inflict a dangerous  wound. He refused to say where  he lodged or whom he saw after his  arrival from Berlin. The prose-  cutingattorney described Bogoliroff  as a noble officer and demanded the  infliction of the most severe penalty.  Counsel for the defendant pleaded  for a milder punishment, declaring  that severity was unable to affect  anything in*.struggling with ideas  and idealists who joyfully sought  martyrdom for their principles. The  court deliberated^ for 25 minutes  and condemned -Karrovich to 20  years of hard labor in Siberia and  the loss of all civil rights. The  police are continuing to inquire into  Karrovich's connection with the  revolutionary movement in Russia.  Boxers Getting Troublesome.  Berlin, April 1.���A despatch to  the Cologne Gazette from St.  Petersburg, dated April 1st, says:  Robber bands of Boxers and  Chinese soldiers have been causing  fresh disturbances in Manchuria in  the neighborhood of Chang Tu Fu.  General Kaulbars is strengthening  the railroad military posts between  Karbin and Chang Tu Fu. General  Kaulbars has asked the governor  general, Grodokoff, to send reinforcements, as a general - revival of  the Boxer movement is expected in  the spring. The Russian garrison  at Tsi Tsi Bad has been compelled  to camp outsideithetqwn, owing to  the presence of--the'^decomposing  bodies of those who were killed  during the cold weather or who  perished of hunger.  Decision. Upheld.  London, April 1.���The appeal  court has upheld the decision of the  divisional court declaring the school  board unjustified in providing  science and art classes out of the  school board rates and that the  author was justified in disallowing  payments therefor.  Brutally Treated by Burglars.  Pittsburg, April 1.���Mrs." Anna  Ward, aged 60, is lying in a critical  condition from the effects of brutal  treatment by masked burglars at  her home yesterday morning. .Mrs.  Ward   and   her  daughter    were  awakened by the presence of burglars at their bedside, each woman  finding a revolver pointed directly  at their head. Mi'9. Ward under-,  took, to resist, and while the  daughter was held in subjection by  one of the men, another knocked  the elder wonmu into unconsciousness, literally crushing her skull.  The husband aiid son of Mrs. Ward  were sleeping on the third floor,  having in their .possession about  $1200, the bootythe burglars were  evidently after.  Russia Weakens Somewhat.  London, April .1.:���Dri Morrison,  wiring to the Times from Pekin,  March J28th says: The Tang Tse  viceroys have carried the day. Li  Hung Chang, who wired urging  emperor Kwang Su~to reconsider  his decision', despite the unanimous advice of the chief provincial  officials, was informed that the decision was irrevocable and that  the Manchuria convention could not  be signed under any circumstances.  Iri spite of her threats, Russia seems  disinclined to slam the door. Negotiations between Li Hung Chang  and M. De Giers were certainly proceeding yesterday when De Giers  agreed to several formal amendments of the text. Russia's cynical  and "bold diplomacy appears for  once to have overreached itself.  PROVINCE  AND   DOMINION  Boer Movements.  London, April "2.'��� Despatches  from Cape Town and Brussels tell  of general Botha and general Dewet  joining a gathering" of 13,000 men  for operations against general  French in the Transvaal.  Two hundred Boers have re-appeared near. Richmond, Cape  Colony, and the town, guard has  been called out to defend the  place.  Dundhe, April 1.-���It is reported  that as a result of general .French's  operations theBoers are retiring eastward, hard pressed by Col. Dartnell  of the Natal police and Colonel  Alderson. Some of them endeavored to break away to- the north, but  were" headed off by Colonel ��� Aider-  son, who captured a 15 pounder arid  .two pom poms.        ,.        ,^^  Spaniards on Aguinaldo.  Madrid, April 1.���The capture of  Aguinaldo caused much interest  hero. The press is' divided on tbe  subject. Some of the newspapers  are delighted with his capture and  describe him as a black traitor to  Spain. Others consider him a  traitor to his own race and declare  he was bought with American  dollars. Interviews are published  with the director of.the Filipino  organ here and also-with the pre-  sidentof the so-called Filipino junta.  They are both quoted as emphatically declaring thnt the capture of  Aguinaldo will have no permanent  effect on the war; that he will be  replaced and that the Filipinos,  aided by the climate, will never be  subdued.  CanadarMay^Hav'e-a~Princer  London, April 1.���It is understood that a suggestion that the  duke of Cornwall and York should  be created prince of Australia has  been considered by king Edward  and the cabinet, but rejected on the  ground that Canada and the other  colonies had an equal right to be  honored in this fashion. An alternative suggestion to create the two  eldest son of the duke of Cornwall  and Yorkj the prince of Canada aud  the prince of Australia respectively  is now under consideration.  Germany Makes a Demonstration.  Berlin, April 1.���The Berliner  Tageblatt publishes the following  despatch from Shanghai: The  German first class battleship Weis-  senburg has started from Shanghai  toward Nankin and the north, her  purpose being to ^impress the Chinese and the allies that Germany  means to preserve and heighten her  prestige and interests in the Yang  Tse valley. The German gunboat  Tiger has relieved the litis at Ban-  kau where the litis stayed five  months because of the shallowness  of the Yang Tse at that point.  Many, Miners Idle.  London, A^rill���Reports received  at a meeting- of the Lanarkshire  colliery engine handlers at Hamilton showed that 30,000 miners were  idle in Scotland owing to the strike  for an eight-hour day.

Vancouver, April 1.���[Special  to The Ti ibnne.] ���Thirteen attendants have resigned their positions  in the provincial asylum at Westminster. A memorial has been sent  to the provincial secretary, giving  details of the "great wrong put  upon us," as the attendants say.  They have grievances regarding  food and dislike the manner generally in which they are treated by  the medical superintendent, Dr.  'Manchester.  The Vancouver Grocers'  Association has prepared a black   li��t   of"  742 persons to whom all ' credit in  future will be refused.   This   number is one-tenth of all the heads of ���  families in Vancouver.  The Nelson Macpherson-Suther-  land Drug Co. has been formed with  three large stores in Vancouver.  C. T.

Tiie people of Victoria are practically unanimous in their verdict  that the Dunsmuir government  should vote that round million  dollars ' to the prom oters of the  Victoria, Vancouver & Eastern,  and that the people of West Kootenay  should pay it.  The Victoria Saturday Post says  3iLe_aiition^of=the.jC/anadian=Eaciflc=  Railway Company ih; moving the  O. P. N. offices from Victoria to  Vancouver; makes it. absolutely  necessary for the Dunsmuir government to yote one million dollars to  the promoters of the Victoria, Vancouver & Eastern in order to save  Victoria's trade.  Copper cent pieces have been introduced in Vancouver by the manager of the Hudson's Bay Company's stores. From the circumstance that all the opposition  appears to come from rival storekeepers it may be assumed that the  innovation will not hurt the purchaser very much. The general  opinion appears to be that the  coppers will force close prices in  the dry goods and grocery trade.  Vancouver's city couucil has  passed its estimates for the current  year." It shows an estimated revenue of $635,761.57 for the year, or  something more than one-third of  the revenue of the provincial -government. Of this sum licenses and  water rates ..contribute but $117,-  310, while government grants to  hospitals total $50,000. Provision  is made for the expenditure of the  entire sum, the charge for interest  and sinking fund being placed at  $118^917.36.  The events of the past week at  ^Victoria go to show that, there is  jpot much 'hope for the promoters  (f the V., V. & E. doiug business  witli the Dunsmuir government.  So far they have doue nothing but  fis'i after the provincial subsidy  and there is nothing to warrant the  government, or the people of the  province, in placing them in any  different category from other  charter mongers who in the past  have waxed fat off the beneficence  of paternal governments. For  mouths past the press of British  Columbia, of all shades of opinion,  has been crying out against the  charter mongering practice which  has grown up in connection witli  railway development, and it is a  hopeful sign that the provincial  government have at last shown  their disapproval of the practice,,  even when the charter mongers  happen to be pretty big fish.  There appears to be no limit to  the concessions or consideration  which the officers of the Crow's  Nest Pass Coal Company will give  to the British Columbia smelting  industry in exchange for a charter  for the Crow's Nest Southern railway. This being so it will doubtless be good policy on the part of  the provincial legislature to keep  the Toronto men bidding for some  time yet.   Chief Lillie of the fire department is expected to return from  Spokane this evening. Should he  return no time should be lost in  having such repairs made to the  Nelson opera house as will make it  less dangerous to patrons in event  of fire.   Some measures should be taken  by the city council to protect real  estate owners, who desire to improve their property, from mistakes  in the fixing of grades which appear to be made in the city  engineer's department.-  THE Fernie Free-Press, in commenting upon- the Nelson Miner's  flop in the East Kootenay railway  questiou, asks the very pertinent  question: "Have the funds run  out?"           Political rumor has it that  premier Ross of Ontario-will succeed  Hon. David Mills as minister of  justice upon the latter's going upon  the supreme court bench.  Liberals of the old school now  compromise with' their consciences  by talking against protection in  parliament and voting in  favor of  it. , -  A Peerage Romance.  A case of the most sensational  character, will, says the London  Sun, shortly come on for heariug in  the high court of justice, should no  settlement be arrived at between  the parties, which bids well to rival  the famous Tichborne claim. Some  25 or 26 years ago a well known  sporting member of. the aristocracy  divorced his wife, who���. two^years  view to lodging his claim to both  title and Testates. Efforts were  made to arrive at a settlement but  notwithstanding the fact that all  along the young man had been kept  supplied with an abundance of  money he persisted in his claini.  He approached distinguished - relatives of his alleged father, but was  advised not to enter into costly  litigation which might prove unsuccessful. The young man has,  however, consulted a prominent  fiim of solicitors, and has made an  offer to waive all claims to the title  and estates provided a certain lump  sum is paid down. Failing this the  case will be thrashed out in open  court.  m  yf*' *0 -^* #0' 00* 0^'00' 00' 00* 00' 00' 00' 00"j0> ������-(^' ^ ' 00 ^^ 5?'S?�� >ST'SS< ^'���S^ ���JT'S^ ^���Sj\^"��Sa^ '^'JS?. ^*^^  1 m  fi       WINDOW   SHADES  �� WORTH 60 CENTS  H NOW  35(, CENTS  Co.  r  muniiiiuiiiuiiuimuinan  rCURTAIN POLES AND  FIXTURES COMPLETE  SPECIAL AT 35 CENTS  m  To Rescue the Emperor.  London, April 1.���The correspondent of the Globe at Shanghai, in a  despatch dated Saturday, March 30,  says he understands that the Yang  Tse viceroys and Yuan Shi Ku, the  military governor of Shan Tung,  are prepared to despatch one hundred thousand troops to Sian Fu to  rescue the emperor from the hands  of the reactionaries and escort him  to Pekin, if a little pressure and  promise of moral support is forthcoming from the powers interested  in the open door.

Zambonga, Island of Mindanao,  March 31.���Owing to the peculiar  conditions prevailing in the Siiln  archipelago and the island of Mindanao the Philippine commission  has about decided to organize a departmental government covering  all of the islauds south of the Visya.  Auniform general proviqcial law is  impossible of application in the extreme southern islands on account  of the necessity ;of debarring tho  Moros from self government except  in cases where they; have foresworn  allegiance to the dattos and the  sultan and become subjects of the  United States and for the. further  reason of the multiplicity of races  and other tribes in Mindanao and  the diversity of interests. The  commission will appoint a depart?  mental governor having authority  to negotiate with the sultan and  the dattos and to act as direct  representative of the commission.  Earthquake Causes Panic,  Constantinople, April 1.���Today  an earthquake was felt in the Del-  mabagtache palace at the moment  of.the Bairin ceremony, when the  high officials were passing before  the| sultan's throne. A. panic re  suited, particularly among the .dip-'  lomatists in the'gallery, many of  =whom=immediately=left-the=place.=  The band ceased playing and the  musicians rushed to the. doors.  Pieces of plaster fell from the ceiling and portions of the chandeliers  were broken, adding to the general  alarm. . The sultan rose from.his'  throne and toofe a few steps, apparently intendingto* leave the chamber^ but he ' preserved great calmness and presence of mind, which  had a good effect. After a moment's  ��� hesitation his -majesty reseated  himself upon the throne and ordered the ceremony to proceed. A  reception followed wifchout.further  incident.  Russia's Internal Troubles.

In the course pf ah inter-  vieiw.in Spokane, he intimated that  there was every liklihpod of the  company building a line from Grand  Forks to points in Republic camp  in the state of Washington.  Indecent Behaviour.  Duncan Forbes was brought before the mayor and J. K. Strachan,  J. P.*, yesterday charged with indecent behaviour. A few boys  were examined in substantiation of  the charge, which was fully established, and tho prisoner was sentenced to three months' imprisonment in default of paying a tine Of  $25 and costs. His plea was that  he was drunk at the time of his  misbehaviour.  :   The Tire Team of Horses.  Chiefs Lillie is expected back from  Spokane tonight with the team of  horses lie has purchased for use in  the fire department. ��� The animals  are said to be all���that can be desired for the work. The runs in  Nelson are short, but the grades  are steep, and it takes good, strong  horses to pull the machine. On his  return the chief will take up the  subject of fire protection at the  opera house.  A Fifty Dollar Blaze.  About 10 o'clock . yesterday  morning the fire brigade were summoned to a blaze at the residence of  C. D. Curtis, next to the Crickmay  Hospital. The blaze had its origin  in the kitchen, where a pot of  grease had been accidentally upset  over the range.. It ignited, and for  a few minutes made things very  lively. However, the fire boys got  in some good work, and quickly  stopped- the spread.- of the flames,  but not before about $;i0 damage  had been done.  . Electric Lights.  It is strongly-suspected���in fact,  it is more than a suspicion iu some  cases���that certain consumers are  using a greater number of lights  than they bargained for. It is  suggested that _ the globes be procurable at the city hall, alone, but  even this ^arrangement will not  work if people with elastic con:  science areto be dealt with. The  fire, water and light committee will  have a hard nut to crack in the'  matter.  C. P. R. AUTHORITIES HERE  On a Tour of Inspection.  R. Marpole, general superintendent Pacific division; W. Whyte,  general manager of the lines .west  of Winnipeg; H. J. Cambie, chief  engineer Pacific division and D. T.  Coyle are a party of C. P. R.- officials who spent-yesterday in Nelson.  The party came on their usual tour  of inspection over the line and  leave for the Boundary country  Tthis-morning-^-. ' ������--.r*~- /*.':������������  ��� ���* *  Yesterday was a busy day with  these gentlemen'.' They went over  the ground at the new depot and  took a.trip to the new shipyard at  Five-mile point,.as well as looking  generally into the conduct of ���> the  various departments of the com-  pany-here. ���.  Mr. Whyte explained that the  trip so far showed the System to be  in a satisfactory condition. How^  ever, extensive additions and altera-,  tions will have ��� to:'be made at  Nelson to meet the growing requirements of this point. The roundhouse, for instance, will have to be  considerably. enlarged and new  machinery -vput in place, as the  present building, although ample  when-put up. recently;,'is now'found  to be too limited in capacity for the  work expected-of it; .  The new ship yard will.be put"in  order at once. ������"' NoTtime'ean; be lost,  as the rising of the waters would  necessitate putting off work for  several months.

On this branch  60-pound rails would be used, which  would be heavy enough for all  the traffic expected. On the main  line, where heavy freight had to be  handled, 80-pound steel is used.  ��Probably by May or June this  branch would be completed. There  was some heavy rock work to be  encountered, but the grade generally was easy. *  As to the completion of the Crow's  Nest Pass line into Nel30n, this was  a work not likely to be undertaken  this season.  Mr. Marpole had nothing to say  for publication, beyond the fact  that he had been approached by  the city in reference to' certain lots  which the council was desirous of  procuring from the railway company. The matter was one he  would take up on his return from  the Boundary.  Hearty Reception to Boers.  Madrid, April 1.���-Despatches  received here from ' Lisbon are  rigorously censored, but letters  which have reached here say the  Boers who arrived, at Lisbon on  board the transports Friday from  Delagoa bay were accorded a  splendid.reception, contrasting with  the coolness of the popular reception of the mission headed by earl  Carrington sent to '" Lisbon to  formally notify king Charles of the  death of queen Victoria and the  accession of king Edward VII. The  hour selected for the landing of the  Boers was kept secret; but a large  crowd was present and acclaimed  the travelers, a majority of whom  were European volunteers. :The  party, numbering 700;. persons,'was  escorted to its ;-quarters in the  vicinity of Lisbon. The Boer officers  are allowed 400 reis and the rank  and file are allowed 60^ reis daily (a  rei is about one and one-tenth of a ���  cent). The leading Boer general,  Pinnare, wept on leaving his 'men.  He was much ��� hurt because his  comrades gave.. him the cold  shoulder during the. voyage ��� on  account of his refusing -to destroy  the Coomatipoort bridge when they  crossed the frontier, notwithstanding that the general acted on the  instructions of president Kruger.
