C, FRIDAY, MARCH 29, 1901  PRICE FIVE CENTS  AGUINALDO'S  BACEISM  How Funston Captured the  Wily General.  WAS TRAPPED BY TRAITORS  FORMER   INSURGENT    OFFICERS  BETRAY THEIR LEADER.  Taken   Completely   by   Surprise   the  Filipino President Made  but  Little Resistance.  Manila, March 28.��� General Fred  Funston, who Marcli 23rd captured  general Btnilio Aguinaldo, when interviewed today by the reporter  said concerning the capture of the  Filipino leader: The confidential  agent of Aguinaldo arrived February 28 at Pantabangan, in tlie province of Nievaetja, northern Luzon,  with letters dated January 11, 12  and 14. These letters were from  Emilio Aguinaldo and directed  Baldermoy Aguinaldo to take command of the provinces of Central  Luzon, supplanting general Aguinaldo.- Emilio Aguinaldo- also  ordered that 400 men be sent him  as soon as -possible, saying tlie  bearer of these letters would guide  these men to where Aguinaldo was.  General Funston secured the correspondent of Aguinaldo's agent and  laid his plans accordingly.  Some months previous he had  captured the camp of insurgent  general Lacuna, incidentally obtaining Lacuna's seal, official papers  and a quantity of signed correspondence. From this material  two letters were constructed ostensibly from Lacuna ,to Aguinaldo.  One of these contained information  as to the progress of the war. The  "other asserted that pursuant to advices received from Baldermoy  Aguinaldo, Lacuna was sending his  best company to president Emilio  .Aguinaldo. His plans completed  and approved, general Funston  came to Manila and organized his  expedition, selecting 7S Macabees,  -all of whom spoke Tagalo fluently.  Twenty wore insurgent uniforms  and the others the dress of Filipino  laborers.  This Macabee company, armed  _with_o_0_Mausers,_l8_Remington-and_  10 Krag-Jorgensons, was commanded by captain Russell Hassard.  With him was his brother, lieuten--  ant Oliver P. M. Hassard, both of  the Eleventh United States cavalry.  Captain Harry TV. Newton, Thirty-  Fourth infantry, was taken'because  of his familiarity with Casiguran  bay, and lieutenant Burton J.  Mitchell, Fortieth infantry, went as  general Funston's aides. These  were the only Americans accompanying the leader of tlie expedition. On the night of March 8th  the party embarked on the United  States "gunb.oat Vicksburg. At 2  a.m., March' llth, the Vicksburg  put her lights out and ran in shore  25 miles south of Casiguran. The  Americans had never garrisoned  this place and the inhabitants are.  strong- insurgent sympathizers.  Having arrived there ,-the ex-insurgent officers ostensibly commanding  the party announced that they  were on their way to join Aguinaldo between Pastobagan and Balora;  that they had surprised an American surveying, party and that they  had killed a number, capturing five.  They exhibited general Funston  and the other Americans as their  prisoners.  The insurgent president of Casig-  usaran believed the story. Two of  the Lacuna letters previously mentioned were forwarded to Aguinaldo  at Patanan. General Funston and  the others were kept imprisoned  for three days, surreptitiously giving orders at night. On the morning of March 17, taking a small  quantity of cooked corn, the party  started on a ninety mile, march to  Patanan. The country is rough  and uninhabited' and provisions  could not be secured.    The party  ate small shellfish, but was almost  starved. "Wading swift rivers and  climbing mountains they marched  seven days and nights and on 3Iarch  22 had readied a point eight miles  from Patanan. They were now so  weak that it was necessary to send  to Aguinaldo's camp for food.  Aguinaldo despatched supplies and  directed that the American prisoners be kindly treated, but not to  be allowed to enter the town.  On the morning of March 23 the  advance was resumed. The column  was met by the staff officers of  Aguinaldo and a ^.detachment of  Aguinaldo's body guard, which was  ordered to take charge of the  Americans. While one of the ex-  insurgent officevs conversed with  Aguinaldo's nj^^^g^aj��iother, a  Spaniard, sent '^UioM^^f^M11  general Funston and tl\o<46^^^$  with-11 Macabees, were abour^SS  hour behind. Having received this  warning, general Funston avoided  Aguinaldo's detachment and joined  the column, avoiding observation.  The Tagalos went ahead to greet  Aguinaldo and the column slowly  followed, finally arriving at  Patanan.  Aguinaldo's household troops,  fifty men in neat uniforms of blue  and white and wearing straw hats,  lined up to receive the newcomers.  General Funston's force crossed the  river in small boats and formed on  the bank and marched to the right  and in front of the insurgent  grenadiers. The Tagalos entered  the house, where Aguinaldo was.  Suddenly the Spanish officer,  noticing that Aguinaldo's aide was  watching the Americans suspiciously, exclaimed: "Now, Macabees, go for them." The Macabees  opened fire, but their aim was  rather ineffective aud only three  insurgents were killed. Tlie rebels  returned the fire. On hearing the  firing Aguinaldo, who evidently  thought his men were merely celebrating the arrival of reinforcements, ran to the window and  shouted : "Stop that foolishness" ;  "Quit wasting ammunition."  Hilaro Placido, one of the Tagalo  officers, and a former insurgent  major,. who, was" wounded in- the  'lung by" the fire of the Kansas regiment at the battle of Calocan,  threw his arms around Aguinaldo  exclaiming, "You are a prisoner of  the Americans." Colonel Simeon  Villia, Aguinaldo's chief of staff, and  major Alambra attacked the men  who were holding Aguinaldo.  Placido shot Villia iu the shoulder  and Alambra jumped out of the  window and attempted to cross the  river. It is supposed that he was  drowned. Five' other insurgent  officers fought for a few minutes,  and then fled, making their escape.  When the firing began .general  Funston assumed command and  directed the attack on the house,  personally assisting in the capture  of Aguinaldo. The insurgent body  guard fled, leaving 20 rifles. Santiago Barcelona, the insurgent treas-  urer, surrendered without resistance.  GREAT BRITAIN  IN CHINA  NO  FURTHER   MILITARY   OPERATIONS CONTEMPLATED.  Lord Lansdowne Thinks Chinese Possess  Many Good Qualities and Hopes  for a Reformation.  On the broad  there   was   a  among    the  Aguinaldo's Capture.'  Washington, March 28.���General  MacArthur has cabled additional  particulars of the capture of  Aguinaldo. The important statement in his cablegram is as follows:  "I hope for a speedy cessation of  hostilities throughout the archipelago in consequence of this stroke.  As a result of a conference now in  progress probably Aguinaldo will  issue an address advising a general  surrender, delivery of arms aud  acceptance of American supremacy."  General MacArthur,'says that all  credit must be given to general  Funston for the capture of  Aguinaldo, and recommends that he  be made a brigadier-general in the  regular army.   Considering the Punishment.  Washington, March 28.���The  war department has not had time  as yet to consider the exact status  of Aguinaldo, where he is to be  3 tried and what punishment, if any,  is to be meted out to him. If he is  to be regarded as having committed  treasonable acts or fomented an insurrection against the United States  government, then the trial would  be of a civil character. Ifc is expected that rigorous procedure, for  treason will be adopted.  No Ice in Lake Erie..  Cleveland, Ohio, March 28.���  Navigation on lake Erie was opened  today by the arrival at this pore of  the steamer A. Y. Gowen . from  Kelly's island. Her captain reported the lake practically free  of ice.  A frugal housewife says there  isn't much venison in market, but  there ia plenty of dear meat.  London, March 28.���In the house  of lords today lord Lansdowne, the  foreign secretary, announced that  no further military operations by  the English troops in China were  contemplated     for     the    present.  When field marshal von Waldersee  recently ordered preparations for  the recent expedition, the British  government      instructed     general  Gaselee to communicate with the  home   government   before participating therein.   The compliance of  China" to the demands of the powers  was' hardly of such a character as  to justify the withdrawal of the  allied forces, but the British government hoped to be able before  loug to   withdraw   or   reduce   its  forces     in     China.     Negotiations  would necessarily be slow with a  refugee government,  questions, however,  practical   unanimity  powers.   The allies had agreed they  were not at war with China and desired to derive no territorial advantage from the present events. They  also recognized the binding  nature  of the existing treaties and desired  to maintain the open door on commercial and economical questions,  while   within   the   spheres   where  each had preferential rights  there  should be equality of opportunity  for the powers concerned.  The British minister at Pokinh as^  been instructed to bo moderate in  his -demand and the government  desired only' to strengthen , the  guards--"sufficiently--to "'-insure." the"  safety of the legations. In' regard  to the question of- indemnity now  under discussion, it had been decided that the claims should be forwarded by the powers iu one lot.  As to the source from which the indemnity should be paid, it was not  desired to impose on China any  crushing burden. By doing so  would be acting contrary to the  policy of the British government  which was to respect the existence  of China as a power. He did not  despair of seeing China reformed.  The people possessed many good  qualities. Both the British and  German governments had informed  China that it was, not desirable  while negotiating with, the powers  as a whole that she should enter  into private arrangements involving territorial or financial conditions with any other power.  ���Russia'had^again^assiired- Great  Britain that opposition with the  British railway was only temporary  and .without prejudice to the interests involved. Great Britain had  not waived her rights in connection  with these railways nor had she  ignored the interests of the shareholders. As to the sources of  revenue, he thought the maritime  customs might be readjusted so as  to impose a real instead of a nominal five per cent,ad valorem duty.  Certain free articles ought to be  subjected to duty, but caution was  necessary lest the interests of  British commerce be damaged.  Lord Lansdowne,'agreeing to the  Anglo-German agreeiii.eitijt, said that,  when this was being negotiated the  German government had given  Great Britain to understand that in  the German view Manchuria was  not a place where they considered  they had any influence. He thought,  however, that the point did not  deserve too much attention, pointing out that the only two treaty  ports in Manchuria ... were Niu  Chwang and Ta Lien Wan with  regard to which explicit assurances  had been given , by the Russian  government. "  Lord Lansdowne said he had seen  newspaper reports,suggesting that  count von Buelow, the German  imperial chancellor, had interpreted  tlie agreement differently from  Great. Britain, but the point did  not seem vital, because all the  powers, including Germany, had repeatedly declared that their policy  was to maintain the integrity of  China.  In regard to the reported Manchurian agreement, lord Lansdowne  said he was not in a position to pass  J final opinion on the matter.   .The  government would not criticize in  any carping spirit any arrangement  regarding Manchuria which was in  the nature of a modus vivendi.   It  was suggested that the versions of  the treaty published- were simply  trial balloons on the part of some  official, or pure inventions designed  to bring about a misunderstanding.  He added;    "Nothing would give  us greater   pleasure ��� than   to cooperate with the Russian government in exposing such an unworthy  object.   If Russia would only by  communicating the real text of the  agreement enable Great Britain  to  put an end. to this mieconception  we should be prepared to co-operate  with her."   What militated against  any   such   hopes ��� has. been   tlie  mystery in which the negotiations  have   been .involved   throughout.  The statement of Mr. Chamberlain,  the   colonial   secretary, that   the  government had printed all it knew  about   the Botha-Kitchener peace  negotiations and that nothing had  transpired    since, '" caused    James  Bryce   (Liberal)   to   analyize   the  terms offered.    He contrasted general Kitchener's first views with the  final    letter    .incorporating     Mr.  Chamberlain's.suggestions and expressed the.hope that the govern  ment would reopen "negotiations.  CURTIS IS TOO BUMPTIOUS  HE WAS ANXIOUS  TO  CENSURE  THE GOVERNMENT.  Wants   Railway   Policy   Announced.  General Matters Before tho  Legislature.  The German Reichstag.  Berlin, March 28.���During the  discussion   of   the ~ budget   in the  upper   house   of   the   diet   today,  count von   Buelow,   the   imperial  chancellor,   remarked that he desired to win the confidence of the  house by his-conduct rather than  by his promises. He had long lived  in countries with .a , purely parliamentary form of government and  had found much therein which was  .not bad, but wbiclrlie did not like.  He objected especially to the fact,  that      every  .'new     government  and    every  " new    minister     was  in   the   habit   of   formulating a.  new   program., full- of   assurances  and promises.   Count Von- Buelow,  in his'capacity as'Prussian premier,'  promised that the bill  should be  laid before the buhdesi-ath immediately after the government depart-,  ments,   concerned ^had*^��bhclnded  their -work.     The   council " would  certainly dispose of the measure as  expeditiously as possible.-  He had  not left room for doubt in either  the bill or the reichstag that he  considered   it   the   duty    of   the  government to promote the interest  of German agriculture with vigor  and zeal. He considered an adequate  increase of the agricultural duties'  absolutely necessary.   In preparing  the   bill,   the  government    would  adhere  to the principles just set  forth.   The   statements   of   count  Von Buelow were greeted with loud  cheers. The resolution was adopted  by a vote of 101 to 27.  Mrs. Nation in Kentucky.  Lexington, Kentucky, March 28.  ���Mrs.  Carrie Nation   opened her  lecture tour here tonight,  a small  audience being present in the opera  house. She arrived-from-Cincinnati-  at noon and after dinner in her  room at the Phoenix hotel had a  brief audience with reporters. She  spent the afternoon sleeping. Mrs.  Nation's lecture on "The Home Defenders" was in the main an impassioned review of her experiences  in Kansas. She called on Lexington  women to follow her example in  ridding the state of saloons. She  started on a slumming tour at 10  o'clock. Several saloons were visited.  A crowd of several hundred followed and the four policemen had  difficulty in keeping them clear of  Mrs. Nation. In one saloon she was  jeered, but boldly called the proprietor to task and told him she  would come back and smash their  saloons when she was done with  Kansas. In the slums Mrs. Nation  prayed with the inmates, of the  resorts and kissed some good-by.  She ended the tour with a visit to  the police station, where she prayed  with the prisoners to do better.  the  had  the  Victoria, March 28.���| Special to  The Tribune.]���Curtis of Rossland  this afternoon moved an adjournment of the house in order that the  government might be censured for  not announcing their railway policy."  The speaker ruled that the question  was not one of great urgency and  therefore not in order and his ruling  was sustained on appeal by a vote  of 26 to 8. Martin maintained that  the speaker' was wrong, but made  an admission that goes to show that  Curtis was getting altogether too  bumptious for the leader of  opposition. He said-that he  advised Curtis not to make  motion as it was one with which he  was not in sympathy.  Martin's bill to allow members of  the legal profession to make contracts for their services passed its  second reading after considerable  debate. McPhillips and Helmcken  were the leading opponents of the  bill. On a vote being taken, 22  voted aye and 9 nay.

He enters a strong protest against  any form of protective duties,  which he declares would be suicidal.  He says he believes that the growth  of trusts will bring a reaction in  the United States in favor of free  trade and that English manufacturers should devote their attempts to  studying a reduction of the excessive railway freight charges and  the heavy royalties on mining and  mechanical supplies as the best way  to meet American competition.  Murder in the First Degree.  Salem, Massachusetts, March 28.  ���John C. Best was tonight convicted of murder in the first degree  for the death of George 10. Bailey  at Brockheart farm in October last.  The murder for which Best stands  convicted was one of unusual  atrocity. Bailey's body was cut up  and the pieces placed in bags wero  sunk in a Moating bridge pond.  Curiosity on the part of two men  in crossing the bridge, who thought  the bag on the surface of the water  contained dead cats and tried to  poke it down, led to. a knowledge of  the crime. Best.was a farm hand  at the placo managed by Bailey.  It May Start a Rate War Soon.  St. Paul, March 28.���The Great  Northern today announced that it  will apply a first class round trip  rate July (! to 13 of $4:1 for San  Francisco, Portland, Seattle,  Tacoma, Victoria and Vancouver,  good for stopover west of Havre,  Montana, from St, Paul, limited for  return to August 31, and a rate of  $50 from Chicago to the points  above named. The regular one  way rate from St. Paul is now $50.  Railroad officials say this will start  a transcontinental rate war by the  southern lines and that Epworth  League rates will be materially cut  by nil lines.  Half Breeds Robbed a Car.  Rat/idhu.m, Idaho, March 28.���  Joe Boussie and Tom Mack, two  half breed Indians, were brought  to the county jail this morning by  constable. Horning of Hope, both  having1  been   bound over   to   the  grand jury on a charge of burglary.  They broke into a freight car at  Hope at an early hour this morning and carried away a large quantity of merchandise. They were  attempting to sell the plunder when  arrested. AU the property was re-  eovtred except a pair of shoes  which Mack was wearing. Boussie  is a Nez Perce of Lapwai. Mack  belongs to the Spokanes.  Sham Inspection of Boilers..  Chicago,   March 28.���According  to city   boiler inspector  Sohlacke,  who testified today at the investigation of the recent boiler explosion  at   the   Doremus   laundry,   which  resulted in thekilling of eight and  the injuring of over 50 people, the  boiler of that establishment has not  been inspected during his term of  office or since March 13, 1898.   The  reason for this, he said, was that a  clerical error had   been   made in  copying off the names from the old  books   to   the   new.     This   testimony      was"   in      direct    . contradiction     to      the'    testimony  offered    in     behalf   of   Doremus  yesterday.     George     Ballard,    a  stationary engineer, created a sensation by stating that during his 30  years   experience he had not seen  seen one boiler- or engine honestly  inspected   in   Chicago.     ".The   inspectors simply open the firo boxes  "and flue doors and take a look inside," said he, "then go. to the proprietor, .tell  him the boiler is all  right    and    collect    their     fees."  Ballard offered to furnish proof of  his assertion   and mentioned two  places where sham inspections have  been held.- It is said the coroner's  jury will recommend an investigation of the boiler inspector's office  at the hands of the grand jury.  DON'T LIKE THE CONDITIONS  TERMS ON WHICH TENDERS WILL  BE RECEIVED.  Promoters of the Coast to Kootenay  Railroad Declare They Will  Submit No Bids.  ���/���"J+  '.a  The Turks Are in a Bad Way.  LpNDON, March 28.���Advices received from Constantinople are to  the effect that'"affairs are rapidly  assuming a dangerous pass  there.  Turkish   finances   are   in an   inextricable confusion.    Government  salaries are from six to eight month's  in arrears.    Upward of a million'.  Turkish.-pounds, are. dueuforijiviih  '--material,' while'the' military expend-'  itures are daily increasing, in order.  to cope with the rebellion  in the  province of  Yemen,   iu  Southern  Arabia, and the possible rising  in  Macedonia.  There is no doubt that the Ottoman troops received a severe check  at the hands of the Arab insurgents,  who, in a manifesto denouncing the  sultan, .proclaimed his brother,  Mohammed Resha Effendi, to be  sultan, with the title of Mohammed  .V. The young Turks' party has  adhered to the Arabian proclamation, and the open enmity to Abdul  Hamid, the sultan, has spread to the  palace and the sultan's advisers.  Izzet Bey is said to be preparing  for flight. The patrols of Constantinople have been doubled. Mohammedans aud Christians are arrested  hourly and large numbers are daily  shippecLto_Asia_Minor.-Thetension  between Bulgarians and Mussulmans in Macedonia is firm. It is  reported that another baud of  marauders has crossed Bulgaria  into Macedonia.  Sympathy for Russia.  Nkw York, March 28���Fully  3000 people crowded into the new  Irving hall tonight at a mass meeting of Russian sympathizers. The  object of the meeting was to discuss  the recent political demonstration  in Sfc. Petersburg. Vladimir Stalech-  nikof presided at the meeting. He  is a Russian nobleman, now au  architect by profession, who was  prominently connected witli the  nihilist movement in that country  and who fled somo years ago in  order to save himself from being  transported to Siberia. Fully one-  third of the audience were women  and they were as enthusiastic iu  their applause as the men and all  of the addresses were enthusiastically received.  Rich Big Buffalo Showing.  Lewiston, Idaho, March 28.���A  somewhat sensational statement  regarding the condition of the Big  Buffalo is mado by S. Shields, who  is recently out from Buffalo Hump.  He says that although the pumps  were taken from the shaft and the  mine flooded, it is still possible to  descend to the 65 foot level. "Here,"  Mr. Shields says, "you can see the  gold shining out of tho rook. Specimens from the face of a drift on  this level that I have seen were  almost half gold. I believe the  property will prove a wonderful  mine."    Tho average man would n��ver  wear his neckties out if ho let his  wife purchase them.  -ta  7rK%_  .

They*  also allege that the condition would.  be repugnant to the Dominion  statute, which provides that inn-  ning expenses must be the fir.-fc  charge on the earnings. Boml-  holders would also object to any  other charge taking precedence of  theirs. Four per cent of the grosr,  they say, would mean about twelve  per cent of the net earnings.  The provision relating to aliens is  also considered superflous and ultra  vires of the province, as the Dominion laws prohibit employment  of aliens. To Victorians there is  some disappointment in the fact  that although provision is made for  -a_daily"ferry"Victoriari<r not mentioned as one of the terminals of  that railway and under the specifications - some other island point  might be selected.  It is felt in some quarters that  the conditions will not be accepted  even by the C. P. R. and that no  tender will be made for it, aud  building of the road will be deferred.  George McL: Brown, executive  agent of the C. P. R., declined to  discuss the question today.  Mosquito Fleet's Good Trip.   .  New York," March 28.���Gratification is felt by the navy department  over the successful voyage of the  mosquito fleet en route to tho  Philipines, says a Washington  special to the Herald. This command consists of the gunboat  Annapolis, the converted yacht  Frolic and the tugs Wompatuck  and Piscataqua. They have arrived  at Colombo and are coaling prepara-  tary to proceeding to. Singapore,  whence they will steam to Manila.  The vessels left Norfolk early in ������  January and crossed the Atlantic  by the southern route, creeping  along tho Mediterranean and down  the Red Sea, making convenient  ports, where coal and supplies werf  secured. Tho program of the littlti  fleet has been watched with some  anxiety, but the fact of its ability  to reach Colombo is regarded as ah  earnest of its arrival at Manila  without mishap.

TIHIJEI  HUDSON'S BAY  STOKES  BAKER STREET     ,  NELSON  9tte ffirfimro*  The Vancouver World' is frantic  because the Dunsmuir government  refuses to go up against every gold  brick game which railway promoters on the Coast can put up.  .The man who does the figure  work for the Dunsmuir government  has anticipated the census takers.  He places the uumber of people in  Britishi.Columbia at 150,000, an increase of'51,500 in ten years.  The Vancouver World says the  objections to tlie Crow's Nest Southern charter are becoming humorous.'  _This7however7 does not express tHr  personal view of Robert Jaffray,  commander-in-chief of the Hill  forces at Victoria.  What has .Tames J. Hill done for  British Columbia that its government should pay him and his associates over one million dollars for  the building of a line of railway  which another company has offered  to build for nothing?  Witrn the census returns are in  there will be some shrinkage in the  populations of the ��� Coast cities.  With not more than 150,000 people  in the entire province, of which 3f>,-  000 are made up of Indians, Chinese  and Japs, it will take a lot of bluffing to make 30,000 populations  stick.           Since British Columbia entered  the Dominion federation its people  have paid in direct federal taxes  two and three-quarter times more  per capita than the other residents  of "the Dominion. British Columbia  contributes from $1,500,000 to  $2,000,000 more each year to the  federal exchequer than it receives  back in the way of expenditures.  A few weeks ago the rallying  cry bf the Hill organs was that any  one who' was desirous of building  railways, without charge to the  provincial government, should be  permitted to do so. This of course  applied to the Crow's Nest Southern  jailwayi   which   .Tames   J.   Hill is  alone anxious to build. Hill, however, has another railway scheme,  the Victoria, Vancouver* & Eastern  railway, for the building of which  he and his associates desire to tap  the provincial exchequer for something over one million dollars. For  this Hue, however, there is every  prospect of securing competition in  tho building: but the Hill organs  have changed thoir cry and protest  against any monopoly, like the  Canadian Pacific Railway Company,  giving the province a railway  for nothing which Hill and his  associate philanthropists desire to  give in exchange for ono million  dollars.  Eviiitv building tiat-d usa theatre, mid in which  aliows, plays nnd exhibitions are licensed to be  held, shall first iu ccrt'liod to by (lie city  engineer, or such other person as tho council may  direct, as being properly constructed and sufll-  ciontiysupported : that tho doors open outwards,  and that there is snfllcient moans of exit to  enablo the occupants of the building, when full  to it.s utmost seating capacity, to leave the  building WITH I .V THK SPACE OF TlUiKF.  .JMINUTE.S time ; Tliat in hi.? opinion there is  nothing either In tho infernal or cxtornalarrangc-  moiit-s.' or in the .STAIRWAYS OI! AP-  PROACHES TH KKETO or llienin, that would  render such building hazardous or unsafe for its  proposed uses; and that proper and sullicicnt  precautions to guard against flro or the spread  thereof have been tn'-tcn : And that' proper and  adequate means of ventilation havo .been supplied ; and that the aisles aro kept clear and no  one al'owed to sit in them. When this certificate  is fllod with the collector by the ciiy engineer, or  such person ns the council nny direct, .lie shall  forth witli issue tho license, upon. tlie license fee  as fixed by clause 211 of this bylaw, being paid.  In order to carry on business in  Nelson as public entertainers, the  owners of the Nelson opera house  require a city license. To secure  this they are required, by bylaw, to  show.-that the premises for which  the license is sought complies with  the requirements of the , foregoing  section of Bylaw No. Gi. The  owners of the Nelson opera" house  presumably have their license, but  just how they could secure it in the  face of such a bylaw few people iu  Nelson can understand. It-is a  fortunate thing for the owners of  the opera house and for the people  of Nelson,' that the dangerous  character of the buildiug as a place  of public " entertainment  has been  a  brought to 'light by reason of the  report of the fire chief, and not by  some fire attended with loss of life  and'suffering. It will now be" competent for the members of the city  council to insist upon full" compliance with the provision of the  municipal bylaw, and they can, in  fairness to the public, be content  with nothing less. In the meantime  ib will probably be necessary, to  cancel the present license, as since  the notice of the city officials has  been called to the dangerous character of the building as a fire trap,  certain responsibility might attach  to the city in case of accident; aud  .'ap'paren tly there is no provision  for permitting any place of public  entertainment to endanger life and  limb.        .  l THB_members_joflthe. Dunsmuir  government have taken considerable  trouble, to show just what the  people of British Columbia pay to  the federal exchequer in taxes. If  now the members of the Dominion  government could be induced to  institute a comparison between  federal and provincial taxation, the  people of this province would have  a very good idea of what they dp  pay in taxes.  Ik what tho Rossland Miner says  is true, tliat nothing premier Dunsmuir or attorney-general Eberts  can do Avill prevent tho building of  the Victoria, 'Vancouver & Eastern;  there no longer exists any excuse  for giving the holders of the charter  that fat subsidy of $4000 per mile.

Talks Without a Tongue.'  A* man who talks without a  tongue is the wonder of Ohio.  He is John Witzermau, a German  stone-cutter of this city. A year  ago a tiny cancer began to grow rn  Witzerman'ss tongue. Last December the tongue and the cancer with  ib was cut out by surgeons. T  severed member has healed, and although Witzerman is tongueless, he  talks audibly and intelligibly. Tho  cancer is believed to have start< d  from smoking. The tongue was removed at a Cleveland private hospital from which Witzermau ha-*  just returned. The neck was  opened on the left side, and through  this opening tho surgeons cut off  the tongue close down to its base.  Care was .taken not to sever the  muscles-which sustain the aesopha-  gus. Local surgeons are greatly  surprised to find that during the  two months since the operations  these muscles have developed to  twice their normal size and  strength. Nature has stepped in  to help fulfill by the increase of  the lifting muscles the function  which the tongue weakly performed  in swallowing.  If it were.not for this abnormal  development Witzermau would  have* been spared dying from cancer  only to choke to death if he ever  ate solid food, as there is now no  tongue to guard the orifice leading  to the stomach. Now "whenever  Witzerman places food in his mouth  it seems to be a signal for the strong  .m.ii.s_cleJs-behind-to_do_the_jworlv_the  v^-^S ^s-^ ^ssS.-sa^ ~<H/<^ -*K��.-*si�� -ss3>**Ss .��sg,����3  eL-f  IO** 0S*' jt*  00 ,(B0 . /B0 ���&? ��� 0^  :xTxnzzxixi:ixx:zzxxxxzzxzxxxxxxix2  WINDOW   SHADES  WORTH 60 CENTS  NOW  35  CENTS  H  H  tzzxxznzzzxxzxixxxiii; ixxxxrxxinxrxi izzx  I  36  Baker  Street  xzxzzxxzxxxxxxxxzzxxxxxxxxzxx::zxzzxzi:xxz  CURTAIN POLES AND  FIXTURES COMPLETE  SPECIAL AT 35 CENTS  IIZX'.tXXXXXX5XIXZIIZXZZXXXXXIXXZXTZir.��XZZT  9  In order to make room for our spriDg carpets, which are now at the statidn, we have decided  to clear out about twenty pieces at cost and some pieces at less than cost.

To hato one's relatives deeply  and at the same time lavish kindness and material benefits on friends  " made among casual acquaintances,  is not an unfamiliar course, but few  men ever pursued it more steadfastly than George Francis Gilman,  tho millionaire merchant Avho died  in his secluded home near Bridgeport, Connecticut, a few days ago.  "Ho fought his brothers and half-'  ��� brothers for the fortune left by his  father, and successfully, though the  contfestfwas waged thirty years in  the courtsJ" Only the more persistent secured a few thousand " dollars, while the bulk of the million  and a half or more which old  Nathaniel Gilman had accumulated  in shipping aud foreign ,trade remained in the hands of his oldest  son. And that million and a half  had been increased more' than  twenty-fold when its holder followed his father into the forgetfillness of the tomb.  George Gilman was a moneymaker as well as a good hater and  stubborn fighter, lie established,  one after another, tea stores in  New York aud other cities and  towns, till they reached the number  of two hundred and eighty-five.  He was the" Lipton of America.  When he died his income was more  than a, million dollars a yeai:: And  he spent his money freely, for his  own   pleasure���selfishly,  yet   huu-  ^dreds=benefitM=by=itriT^t==Bridge:r  port,   the   fashionable   houses  are  along the shore of the sound.    Gil-  . mau bought a thousand acres away  back from the town, bordering on a'  swamp and an arm of the sea.  Here he built a great house, furnished it regally, and then began  to.entertain in state those whom.,  his fancy led him to invite, but  ���they were not' his .neighbors or  Bridgeport people. He had grown  old, but not willingly. He dreaded  old age, he had; a morbid fear of  death and all of its suggestions.  His favorites were the young, the  gay, the brilliant ones of the  musical and theatrical world. More  than ono great actor, numbers of-  great singers, students from Yale,  parties of haudsome young women,  came to Black Rock to eu;joy his  hospitality. His ��� dinners were  triumphs of culinary art aud they  were enjoyed with; decorum.  But, iri spite of his wealth, his gay  . friends, his many distractions, his  aversidri for clocks that would show  the march of time, his banishment  of mirrors that would picture his  whitening hair and stooping form,  death came to him. And he was  only a little more than seventy-five.  He might have lived longer had not  selfishness aud hate mixed acid with  his blood. When the news spread  that he was lying  cold and still iu  . his Black Rock house, no ionger able  to resist appeals or assaults, the  relatives who had been beaten in  their fight for Nathaniel Gilmau's  gold came forward ready to  struggle for the estate of the son  whom they believed had cheated  them out of it. No will could be  found. And this developed a serious  , jtliilerence in the laws of two states.  In ^Connecticut half-relatives can  not claim a share in property not  devised by will, when there are full  relatives. In New York, half-rela-  tives'are not shut out. Tho courts  will be called on to decide whether  George Francis Gilman died 'a  resident of Connecticut or New  York. Theophilus Gilman, of  Brooklyn, heads the list of full  brothers and their heirs ; Frassier  Gilman, of North Dakota, is spokesman for the half-brothers and a  long roll of nephews, neices, and  grand-nephews. Then there are  business associates, favored friends  and expectant beneficiaries. One  George W. Smith was for years the  old man's especial favorite, but he  had been deposed, and can hope for  nothing if there is no will.  [n the mansion at Black Rock,'  however, there is one to be reckoned with, who is likely to share in  the thirty-odd millions, though no  ties of blood connect her with the  Gilman family. Tbis person is Mrs.  Helen Blakely Hall, who for three  years or more has been his close  friend aud confidant,'and the head  of his household. Mrs. Hall is a  young and beautiful woman, accomplished aud clever, and she is virtually in possession of the 'Gilman  home. The servants take their  orders from her, and though legal  representatives of the heirs have  established themselves in the house  they are Q received" as Mrs. Hall's  guests, and no order has been issued having for its purpose her dispossession." Mrs. Ilall was not unknown when she came to Black  Rock. She came from tlie west,  had seen experience in the theatrical world, and mot Mr. Gilman at  Saratoga. _ She says that a temporary disagreement with her husband led her to leave .him and. to  accept the offer of a refuge at Black  Rock. ' She calmly asserts her right  to a share in the "Gilman millions,  and declares that she possesses  documents which will establish her  claim.  Just what the papers can be is a  matter of speculation, as Mrs. Hall  refuses to show her hand. There,  are but two reasonable suppositious:  One is that she possesses a will in  her favor; but in this case there  appears no good reason why it  should not be produced at once,  though it may be filed for probate'  any time before April 3rd. The  second'possibility is an acknowledgment of adoption by the-eccentric  millionaire. Mrs. Hall denies the  imputation that she became Gil-  man's wife^ as she has a husband-  living, and says that the rumor that  her daughter was adopted by the  =old=man��is=not=true,���as=she=iiever=  had a child.  : Whatever the claim Mrs. Hall has  set up, the indications are that the  heirs: will; recognize.it. The caution  with which they approach all communication with the lady shows  that her position has strength  Counsel for the relatives affect to  laugh at her assertion of confidence,  but Frajcier Gilman, for the half-  relatives, says frankly that she will  get a share. This half-brother is  the most striking figure of the  many claimants. He is! a grizzled  frontiersman, recently in from the  West, and his memory of his last  visit to New York previous includes  a savage assault by George Oilman's  coachman, who was hired to protect his master. The man nearly  killed the half-brother, who had  come to ask for some of the money  he believed to be his by right of  inheritance.  Nelson Branca���Burns Block, 221 Baker  Street.  J. M.

She makes too much noise to suit  thom and creates dissatisfaction  among the other prisoners by  tongue-lashing the jailer every time  she gets a chance and urging other  prisoners to do the same.

No damage. ��� >. ���  "A Fireman " writes Thr -Tribune  as follows: '"The person who claims,  to have had the laugh on the firemen had better consult an optician.  Anyone who could not distinguish  a dense coal smoke from a chimney  fire certainly needs an optician's  advice." The assumed joke was  crude.  At the May and Jennie mine yesterday a number of hands were laid  off and the exact reason was not  given by the management. ' A. few  weeks ago work on a stamp mill  was started and it was considered  that the program was a busy season.  The mine is in good shape and could  be made a steady shipper. 'Rumors  are current that the close-down is,  only temporary.  A Beturning Warrior.  F. Fernie, of the Strathcona Horse,  passed through Nelson, en route for  his home near Kamloops, yesterday.  He was one of the fortunate one?,  not - having .had the', fever or a  bullet wound during, the trouble  with the Boers. There were twenty  men from the city at the Thompson  river and district who went to  fight in Africa, and all but three  have returned. One of the number,  .EdHuntei', died iu London," Eng.,  of enteric, contracted in the Transvaal. He was the only man of the  contingent who died at home.  City Assessment.  The city assessment roll for the  current year is. now" in course of  preparation, and will be presented  about the 6th of May.   It will be  the fourth assessment since incorporation.     The   first was made in  March, 1898, and according to the  figures   then   furnished   tlie   land  values were $806,870, and improvements $891,442.   The next year the  totals stood, lands $1,171,690, improvements   $470,615,  showing  an  increase of $660,861).   Last-year the  lands within the city limits were  iassessed at $l,247.250,,andimprove-:  ments at $818,150, giving a total of  $2;065,400, which shows an improvement of. $423,089,  of a balance to  credit over the assessment of 1898  of $1,033,958.    The assessment for  tlie current year will show a big  increase over these figures, as none  of the building operations of 1900  are included in last year's assessment.   There is, perhaps, no city in  the*, province   which   can make a  better   showing   than   this.     The  capital of the Kootenays  is going  ahead, and will   continue on   the  course.  was a candidate for the mayoralty  of Rossland when that city put on  municipal airs and these were  officially recognized. A gentleman  named Scott, however, defeated him  on the assumption that he (Scott)  had brains, money, experience, time  and every other consideration. But  one of the first acts of Rossland's  first-mayor was to vote himself a  salary of $2000 a year. Mr. Scott  was not re-elected���in fact ho quit  the country and went back east.  The Death Boll.  Marmaduke Bennison, purser on  board the steamer Nelson, whose  death was announced in yesterday's  Tribune, will be interred on Saturday. Deceased was born in Grantham, Lancashire, England, 24 years  ago. He came to this country about  1894, and striking west to "rise  with the country" Fettled ih Revelstoke for a time. There he,entered,  the services of the 0. P. It. in whose  employ he remained to the "time of  his death, which occurred a couple  of hours prior to the arrival of hia  brother Albert. When the Nelson  came into port yesterday her flag  was at half-mast. Deceased was well  and favorably known.  Fall in Meat.  The train leaving Nelson for  Slocan City yesterday morning had  a break-down about five miles this  side of the newly incorporated  municipality. ''-While passing over  what is known in railway geography  as bridge 40 a flat car arid a  refrigerator jumped the rails and  went with a flop into the water, a  fall of some 60 feet. The flat car is  completely immersed, and the one  laden with beef, mutton and pork  from P. Burns & Co. is just visible  above the rippling waters. No one  was hurt, and a wrecking crew was  at once sent out to rescue the  fallen ' meat. The men did good  work, but had reason to realize  that - frozen- carcasses are more  easily handled on terra firma than  when submerged in Kootenay  waters.  o  <fc oo.  ���NTHLSOIT.

His wor-  ship.ofthe higher altitudes reports  favorably of the city over whose  destinies he presides. The mayor  is enthusiastic on the refinery proposition and positively avers that a  province which contributes so  liberally : to the treasury should  have something in the way of a refund. He does not claim Rossland  is an ideal site for such an institution and would be glad to see it  established in Nelson. "We have  the silver-lead here," said his worship, "and when we get to manufacture it ourselves we will have a  busy community���the best country  on   the   continent."    Mr.   Lalonde  Phair' Excavations.  Tho work of excavating from under the Phair hotel is practically  completed.

The job was a quick  one and if the builder does his work  as quickly as the foundation' man  the Phair will be fairly well .under  way to completion within a few  weeks. ���           $300 in Booze.  The man McKay, who was arrested by chief. Jarvis on Wednesday while-suffering from the effects  of an over-indulgence - in alcoholic  liquor refreshments, was yesterday  brought before J. K. Strachan, J. P.,  and fined $10 with the alternative  of thirty days. ' He took the alternative, being financially . embarrassed, bub pleaded hard for a  milder sentence*    "I came to this.

''���London, March 28.���The Daily1  Mail lias received the following  from Tien Tsin dated yesterday:  Colonel MacDonald politely asked  the Russians to remove their flags  from the British portion of the disputed territory, where they surreptitiously placed them after a mutual  evacuation had been agreed upon.  Tue^Russians flatly declined. It is  understood that the question of  title to these concessions has not  yet been settled.  ���    PERSONAL.  G. H.

That Fire Team.  That fire team (of horses) is hard  to secure.
