THE TRIBUNE: NELSON, B, C., WEDNESDAY, MARCH 27, 1901  PRICE JTYE CENTS  UNITED STATES' DILEMMA  MEW   PHASE   OF    THE   CHINESE  QUESTION   PRESENTED.  By  Withdrawing Forces She May Be  Deprived of a Voice in Settling  Certain Questions.  $&S  J��^fg��gg  Washington, March " **��d^^*v*h  attention has been  the crisis connected with the Manchurian agreement, an entirely new  and- important phase of the Chinese  question has been presented by the  action of the ministers at Pekin in  agreeing yesterday to submit to  their various governments whether  articles 8 and 9 of the Chinese protocol shall be carried out by the  military authorities of all the powers interested in China, or only by  those powers who are continuing to  take part in the application of  these articles. The action of the  ministers has been communicated  to several of the foreign embassies  legations  financial arrangements, at least  without the full understanding and  approval of all the powers now engaged in negotiations.  (Signed)   Hay. -  The administration believes that  the second agreement between  Russia and China is in violation of  the spirit if not of the letter of the  general understanding to which all  the powers subscribed last summer,  and the United States is prepared  to use all its moral suasion and influence to prevent its consummation  March   20.���The  foreign  not meet again until  ~* -.,.., .mfg$ *a ready toreport on  China's^iS^frces.   The committee  is still hearing merchants, bankers  and others on the subject.  The Australian contingent left  here this morning for Taku and  will sail for home tomorrow. A  Japanese regiment is starting today for Japan.    -  KITCHENER'S POLICY FAILS  FRESH TBOOPS MUST BE SENT TO  THE FBONT.  Sir Alfred Milner Sulks in His Tent  and Threatens to Resign Unless  Given Greater License.  and legations here and doubtless  Mr. Rockhill will make known the  same ' facts. The articles in question are as follows:  Article 8.���The destruction of the  forests which might obstruct free  communication between Pekin and  the sea.  Article 9.���The right to maintain  occupation of- certain points, to be  determined by an understanding  among the powers, in order to obtain open communication between  the capital and the sea. -  These two questions appear to  involve territorial affairs and it  may become of. considerable moment whether the determination of  such affairs is to'be left with the  military authorities ��� of all the  powers or only with such powers as  continue their"! military forces in_  China. In the latter case," the  - United States government may: be"  .quietly but effectually deprived- of  all voice in the settlement of so  much of the Chinese question as relates to the determination of the  strength of the military forces to  be continued there in the future by  the powers. It is also possible that  an affirmative decision by the  powers which would exclude the  United States from participation in  the discussion of this important  point might be extended to put us  out of China altogether.  The crisis in the question brought  about through the expiration of  the period allowed for the signature by China of the Manchuria  agreemeut was the principal topic  before thecabinet today. To make  clear to the public the complete  disapproval which is entertained  by the United States for this sort  of   secret treaty making,, it   was_  deemed proper to give out for publication the following memorandum:  Chinese correspondence, March 1st;  1901���Telegraphic- - instructions  sent to the representatives of the  United States in Berlin, Vienna,  Paris, London, Rome, Tokio and  St. Petersburg:  Department of state, Washington, March 1, 1901.���The following  memorandum which was handed to  the Chinese minister on February  19th is transmitted to you for your  information and communication to  the government to which you are  accredited:      ...  The preservation of the territorial  integrity ojP'/ China having been  recognized-/by all. the powers now  engaged in joint" negotiation concerning /the injuries recently  inflicted upon them by certain  individuals and subjects of the  Chinese empire, it is' evidently  advantageous to China to continue  the present international understanding upon this subject. It  would be, therefore, unwise and  dangerous in the extreme for China  to make any arrangements or to  consider any proposition of a private nature involving the surrender,  of territory or financial obligations  by convention with any party or  power, and the government of the  United States aiming solely at the  preservation of China from  the danger indicated with the  principles set forth in its circular  note of July 3, 1900, and in a purely  friendly spirit toward the Chinese  empire and all the powers now interested in the negotiations desires  to express its sense of the impropriety, inexpediency and extreme  danger to the interests of China of  considering    any    territorial    or  Shamrock II.  Glasgow, March 26.���The spars  and rigging of the Shamrock II are  now being prepared for setting up.  They include several new ideas.  One is the abolition of the topmast  and all topmast fittings. She will  have a single metal spar, the largest  ever fitted to any ship, measuring  from step to truck 148 feet. This  saves the extra weight caused by  the necessary overtapping of the  lower mast and topmast and the  weight of the housing gear,* and  gives also, it is thought, a stronger  and better braced spar. The Shamrock II will be unable to have her  topmast in the event of racing in a  gale of wind, but this has happened  only once since the American cup  races began. Mr. Wadd, the managing partner of the Messrs. Denny,  the builders of the cup challenger,  informed a representative of the  Associated Press that he certainly  would have Shamrock II ready by  the date fixed for her launching,  April 20. He is much struck with  the interest shown by the workmen  employed on her construction and  considers the yacht will be the  finest bit of shipbuilding ever  turned out from the yard.  Preparing for War.  -New York, March 26.���A dispatch to the World from Constantinople says advices, from Odessa,  the Black sea port of Russia, say  that extraordinary preparations for  war are being made. Naval dock  yards are pushing work on the  Black sea fleet, while thousands of  soldiers are being despatched in  haste to various points of strategic  importance. The garrisons in all  the cities are being doubled and  domiciliary visits are made continually with many arrests. There  is a real war fever abroad and the  general impression seems to be that  there will be a conflict in the far  east with Japan and possibly a  European power.  Thought Revolver W_as_Empty. ���_  7 "Watertown, N.Y., March 26.���'  Walter Powell of Black river  accidentally shot and perhaps  fatally wounded his wife this  morning. He had taken a revolver  out of doors for the purpose of discharging the' bullets in- the six  chambers. Believing that all were  discharged he turned and pointed  the weapon at his wife and snapped  the trigger. A bullet entered his  wife's right groin, passing through  the walls of the abdomen. The district attorney investigated the case  and decided that the shooting 'was  accidental. Mrs. Powell has made  an ante mortem statement exonerating her husband.    ������''''  High Water in Michigan.  Grand Rapids, Michigan, March  26.���The Grand river has reached  the danger limit here. Basements  are flooded and a dozen large factories have closed because the water  has reached the fires and many men;  are idle. A number of houses and  factories are reached only by boats.  The river above and below the city  is more than a mile wide in places.  The railroad is having trouble north  and west of here from washouts.  London, March 27.���The Pretoria  and Bloemfontein correspondent of  the Times sends long dispatches admitting that lord Kitchener's policy  and    operations^   have   failed   to  achieve the results hoped for and  pointing out that the British public must be prepared to return to  the   original   policy of   occupying  towns   and studding the country  with military posts  as   the   only  means of effecting complete pacification.     The   correspondent   says  this will occupy" much   time'" and  necessitate a constant   supply   of'  fresh troops. " The strain on both  officers and men has been and will  be immense and arrangements must  be made to send absolutely fresh  troops to the front in order to enable the others to' be sent home.,  "Until this aspect of the case is"  grasped by the authorities," say the  advices to the Times, "there is a  probability of the war. lasting for  years. It is quite useless to renew  peace negotiations. Nothing ap--  proaching 'terms,' as the word is  generally understood, would be  politic or even possible with the  Boers."  The Daily Express prints a rumor  that sir Alfred Milner is dissatisfied  with his qualified authority and  has asked the government to give  him "either a free hand or no  hand." Mr. Chamberlain is said to  have replied that it would not be  advisable' to disassociate ' the  authority of sir, Alfred Milner from  that" of lord Kitchener, and the  rumor goes that sir Alfred contemplates resigning.  "It is an open secret," says the  Daily Express, "that sir Alfred Milner has long chaffed at having lord  Kitchener at his elbow to check or  modify his proposals."  The Amsterdam correspondent of  the Daily Mail wires the substance  of an interview with Mr. Kruger,  whom he found in a most pessimistic frame of mind.  General Babbingtou's victory over  general Delarey had been, Mr. Kruger thought, exaggerated in the reports. He "said the' Magaliesberg  range and Rustenburg were again  in the possession of the Boers, and  the old guerilla program will be  continued until Great Britain will  be forced into making peace overtures.  ��� The "correspondent~of ~th"e"Daily  Express reports the capture by 100  Boers of 130 colonials in a rocky  defile near. Richmond last Thursday. He asserts that the colonials  lost 13 men before they surrendered,  adding that they were all liberated'  after having been stripped of their  accoutrements.  ,  Favorable News From Philippines.  Washington, March 26.���It developed today that the news from  the Philippines, as communicated  to the cabinet by secretary Root,  continues not only reassuring but  much more favorable than had  been anticipated.  Guillotine Preferred.  Stockholm, March 26.���The Riksdag has sanctioned guillotining instead of beheading with an ax in  cases of capital punishment. I  Poisoning* at Missoula.  Missoula, Montana, March 20.���  Mrs. J. E. Totraan died here tonight  as the result of a mysterious poisoning. With foul";. members of the  family she was stricken while dining Sunday. She steadily grew  worse, death resulting tonight in  the. greatest agony. A celery soup  served during the meal is supposed  to have contained the ^ifSoison.. The  servant who prepared, the soup is  now in the hospital suffering from  nervous prostration and it is believed while temporarily unbalanced  she put poison in the soup. Mrs.  Totinan was the wife of the superintendent of the Big Blackfoot  Milling Company. Totman and two  children were but slightly affected,  having partaken but slightly of the  poisoned food.     ���  Raft to Cross the Pacific.  Portland, March 26.���The Evening Telegram says: The Robertson  Raft Company iri the near future  will build a mammoth raft containing almost 10,000,000 feet of logs,  which will be towed across the Pacific ocean to oriental points. For:  several years the Robertson Raft  Company has been engaged in constructing and towing to San Francisco large rafts, and the success of  the past few years has inspired the  raft company with confidence, and  it has decided that if a raft can be  Can Produce the Documents.  Berlin, March 26.���Referring to  lord  Cran-  the recent answers of   borneirTtbeT House of "commons to  questions regarding the applicability  of the Anglo-German agreement to'  Manchuria; a high German official  said today: "It was lord Salisbury  himself who during the negotiations  preceding the Anglo-German agreement wished to insert in the agreement a paragraph formally excepting Manchuria. Count yon Buelow's  statement in the reichstag March  15th was correct. - We can produce  the documents any day."  May Withdraw From Dreibund.  Berlin, March 26.���The insistance  of the French newspapers that Italy  is contemplating withdrawal from  the Dreibund, owing to tlie obligations imposed by that alliance being  the cause of Italy's financial, difficulties, has called out; an inspired  statement in the semiofficial North  German Gazette to the effect that'  the allies never imposed upon Italy  any suggestions in regard to the^  employment of the Italian army.  Manual Training.  The American idea is that every  child is entitled to an education.;  The California idea ought to be1  that every child is entitled not only  to an education, but to the very  best education the world can afford.  And no grumbling -about "fads"  will alter tlio fact that manual  training is an essential part of such  a course.���San Francisco Examiner.  Warlike.  A more powerful impetus to war  could not be given than the alleged  admission by a prominent British  official that Great Britain is unprepared to engage in war against Russia, at the present time.���San Francisco Bulletin.  successfully towed to San Francisco  one can also be towed across the  ocean. The present scene of operations of the Robertson Raft Company is Westport, on the Columbia  river, about 60 mile's below Portland. A raft to be made up of  about, 6,000,000 feet is now under  construction,'and it is expected to  start to San Francisco about June  1st. The raft which the company  expects to tow to China will be  lashed together with more than 1000  tons of chain .of the best quality.  Swamped in a Trolley Car.  New York street car passengers  are accustomed-to being jammed,  trodden on and; commandeered by  officials, but it .was^not until  the  other day that a carload of people  ever had a couple.'of tons of water  emptied   on   them.     A ���  Madison  avenue   electric   car,   going down  town in the morning got, into difficulties   with- a   large   derrick   at  Sixteenth street and Union square,  which is being" used in digging the  Rapid   Transitr tunnel.     Hanging  from the derrick- was a big steel  bucket     containing     two      tons  of    water.     The     roof-    of    the  car    hit   'the  , bottom     of    the  bucket, which, resenting the asault,  capsized and "poured all its contents  over the car.   About sixty passengers   were drenched.   -The motor-  man   and   conductor    were    completely waterlogged.    Joseph Gannon, the boss of the, derrick, said  that a workman was posted to stop  cars while the bucket-was-in the  danger zone, but the man turned to  look at a prettygirl and as a result  the street car was converted into  an aquarium.  GERMANY RIDICULES  IDEA  '    Her Indemnity Must Be Large.  Berlin,- March 26.���No official  advices have been received here  from Tien Tsin indicating that collisions have occurred there between  the troops of. the powers, or any of  them, apart from the railway incident now in process:pf adjustment.'.  Sir Robert ��� Hart's "proposal <l;o  Settle China's-liabilities by internal  taxes does not meet withfavor here  either officially or. in the. press.  Count von Buelow is still of opinion  that an increase in sea tolls would  be the best method, and Dr. Steu-  bel's mission to London is partly  intended to remove- England's objections to such a course. The view  said to be held at Washington that  the United States should receive  $25,000,000 as indemnity and Germany $60,000,000 is- unanimously  ridiculed by the German press of  every shade as unfair and not corresponding with the sacrifices made  by Germany.

Captain Duncan and J. H; Bowes  leave for Nelson tonight., ;  ;,  Trouble in a College.^.,-'  Lennoxville, Quebec, March 28.  ���There .'.is -'trouble' at Bishop's  'college. The fee for supplementary  _ examinations*- wasf raised^oJf-*':;$"^  ; Previously' it * 'had ""been $5".

He arrived this  morning    and   had    his    wounds  dressed.    A gash over two inches  long is cut iu his head and he is  suffering from   the effects  of the  injury.   He had been  working in  the'smelter at Northport and was  returning to this city.   At Pasco he  was. assaulted by three men and  forced to deliver all he had except  60 cents in cash.    One man, - whom  he' describes as a dark character  about' six feet in height, struck him  over the head with a pick handle.  When he was knocked senseless the  men robbed him of $15 in money  and   a revolver worth $10.     The  only change left was 60 cents, which  was probably   overlooked by the  robbers in their haste to get away.  After lying in a helpless condition  for    several    hours  . Brown    was  aroused by a friendly dog licking  the blood from his face and showing'  signs   of   sympathy.     He    looked  about and discovered a man  with  one leg who bound up the wounds  and assisted him to arise.    He is  being   cared for in. this city., No  clue to the robbers is known except  that the wounded man recognized  there were three of them and: the  man who struck him was a dark individual about six feet'tall.

North Yakima, Wash., March 24.  ���W. L. Brown lies in this city with  his head cut,   showing  a  serious  Sues Mother for Wedding 'Present.  The    members   of   the   Kenton  county, Kentucky, bar   were; very  much surprised the other,day when  they learned that a novel suit had  been   filed   in   rhagistrate   W.   H.  Wheeler's court by attorney B. A.  Frazer.    Herman   Herzog,  a   prominent   young   real    estate . man,,  sought to recover $100 which  his  mother, Mary Herzog, had promised  to give him if he got, married.    He  was duly married, but' he did not  get the $100. ��� This is "probably the  only suit of its kind ever filed.    In  the   regular   legal ( language,'.the  plaintiff   states   for   cause of ��� his  action that during the month of  October, 1900, the defendant promised to'pay to the plaintiff "in  consideration qf her natural "love.  and'affectiori,arid;.r'elatjonship^..fof'"y  and   to 'him-, ' and of   other good'  and   valuable . considerations,' - the  sum      of "   $100."      The      plaintiff's"    marriage     was '' then     in  contemplation..   He'states that the'  date had never ��� been set, but "in  consideration of her proffered financial assistance' and her desires iu  the matter," he yielded to his mother's wishes and was wedded on February 12th  last.   He  states that,  although he has repeatedly asked  his mother for the money, she has  refused it.  The case caused something of a  sensation because of the prominence  of the parties concerned, belonging  as they - do   to   the best German  society in the town.     Iri the next  place it caused comment on account  of its oddness.    The older lawyers"  said attorney Frazer had filed a suit  that would not hold in law.     Then  -they-took-thetroubIe'to_walk_over  to the magistrate's office to look at  the petition and they opened their  eyes.   For the court's convenience  Frazer had submitted a list of Kentucky   court of   appeal   decisions  having a bearing on cases somewhat  related to the one to be tried. There  they were:     4 Bibb, 187; 4 Littell,  208; 7 B. Monroe, 58; 11 B. Monroe,  40; 3 Metcalfe, 302; 8 Bush, 4.    The  lawyers    have   stopped   laughing  about the suit filed by their young  brother attorney.   Indeed they are  expecting him to win his case and  thus to set a precedent that will  strike terror to the hearts of fathers and mothers.  . ..  ���H'.

TZE3i:E3  1  STOBES  BAKER STREET        NELSON  There are 3272 Chinese in' Victoria.   This army, however, maintains but 76 households, the bulk of  the     Chinese     being    distributed  .   among   " European     houses     and'  ' Chinese lodging houses.  Chief Lillie of- the fire department   has   condemned   the " opera  ' house  as  a fire trap.   This is one  ,   advantage in having . a -chief who  ������knows a fire trap when he - sees - it;  The trap complained of was ��� set' iri  Nelson some three years ago.  The recent turn in railway mat-  ^ters_has_shown_that^_the_Dunsmuir_  government has no great hold upon  the people of- British* Columbia.'  Apparently it is not strong enough  to make the best railway bargain'  '.'". possible withoutr seriously s- undermining its strength.  Lawyer McPhillips .was ;-the;  only one of Victoria's'four- repre-i  sentatives who had spunk enough  to tell eight hundred excited bonus'  hunters that he did not agree with  them nor their railway resolution..  His was the only reputation1 which,  improved as a result of the big rail-'  way meeting.  The Victoria Post says E. V.i  Bod well has a habit of talking  straight from the shoulder. Should  this rumor overtake that other that  Victoria's eminent-politician -also'  has a habit of talking through his*  hat, it may affect his. railway engagements for the future.  The Houston= resolution, dealing  with the Crow's^Nest Southern railway charter, will probably come upj  in the legislature today. The resolution recites that if such a railway  is  necessary, to insure -the> rapid  development of thecoal mines,; it:  should be undertaken, as  a public:  work.    In so much as it will- serve ���  to put a number of members on  record, the resolution will be useful.  Government ownership of railways  was a great fad-with Joseph Martin  and his lieutenants in the lost cam-  joaigu.   It was their long suit;->��ad  they worked the labor vote on this  issue for all it was worth. TBxxt-  since their return they have all  been uniformly silent. In the case:  of the Crow's Nest Southern railway  it is suggested that the road is  necessary for the development of  the coal measures of East Kootenay.  It would be a short line and would  not cost much to build. It would  be a piece of railroad which would  not have to develop business. In  short the business, up to the moving  of 8000 tons of coal per day, is but  awaiting the road's construction.  Finally, it is a road which promises  to pay so well that its promoters  have not the hardihood to ask for a  subsidy. What better opening  could be sought for an experiment-  along the line of-government construction and ownership of railways ? It is possibly the only piece  of railway building projected in  this province in which the government-could -take up the financial  responsibilities without getting  gold-bricked. What will the verdict  of the-Martinites be? They have  shouted government ownership loud  and long; now here is their chance.  A HUNGRY DOB'S FIND.  Cass Lake,- Minn., March 16.���  Because he was too poor to buy food  for his dog, John Anderson, a settler  at the little village of Black Duck  near here, is now a rich man, with  every prospect of becoming richer  in the near future. In ' his search  for. food the dog accidentally  revealed a mine of gold. Anderson,  who took up a - claim near Black  Duck last fall," was ill nearly all the  winter-and-had it not been for the  kindness of- neighbors would  probably have starved to death.  There was considerable complaint  when he insisted on sharing the  food ��� given him with his dog, a  common yellow,cur,'with a shrewd  eye and a stub tail,, .which wiggles  incessantly, and finally the, neighbors decided that -while they, were  willing.to care for Anderson, they  were not willing to care for the  canine that was' his friend and  companion at all times.  This brought about a coolness  between Anderson and the people  who had .sent food tb him, and  when the snow began to go, Anderson was in a sorry plight. How he  managed to live is a mystery. A  short time, ago "his provisions were  entirely exhausted -and he was  ���forced to turn the dog adrift. The  dog, however, refused to.be turned  out into the cold world,-with gentle  spring.coming*on, so he began to  hustle around in an< endeavor to  recall the-.places, where he had  buried bones when times.were better and' there waa plenty in the  larder. Yesterday he disappeared  for a time, and when he returned  he bore- in his mouth a bone, which  he brought into the cabin -and be-;  gan gnawing. The attention of  Anderson was attracted by the peculiarity of.the bone and he began  an investigation.  Taking.the bone away from the  dog, he looked at it closely and saw  that the earth adhering to it  was  filled with shining yellow particles.  "His"curiosityr-was~arousedi���especially as his" claim is on land that has.  every indication of being gold bearing.     Scraping  together   a - large  number of the particles he carried  them to Black Duck and visited the  local' jeweler.   When,; the jeweler  tested ���  the   yellow   particles; he  astonished Anderson by informing  him that they were gold and mighty  good gold at that.   The value of the  dust  was in the -neighborhood, of  $80, which- waa paid by the jeweler  for   the   metal.   The news of the'  strike was soon noised around, and  when Anderson located, by the aid  of his dog, the spot from which the  bone had- been -dug,-and found it'  rich in gold������������ dust, .which  extended  back toward a ledge of rocks for  nearly sixty feet, the excitement,  became intense.    Inside of an hour  Anderson had been offered all kinds  of money for his claim, but he has  thus far refused to sell'as he is convinced he has a fortune at hand.  He has already obtained more than  $8000w6rth of gold dust from  a  tract less than ten-rods square.  The reinstatement of the pair was  demanded and * refused. A vote on  a strike was taken and all in favor  of. kissing promptly quit; leaving  the factory practically deserted.  The dispatches say "the town is  with the kissers."

A good deal has appeared in the  newspapers of late about bridge  whist, the game which is takiug a  great hold on card players from  ocean to ocean.  In London bridge whist has become so extravagant a craze that it  has been banished from most of the  clubs. At the duchess of Devon-  , shireV. Christmas party bridge  'whist was played throughout the  entire day, stopping only for meals,  and on until 5 . o'clock the next  , morning, one guest losing $11,00-6.  New York society is - bridge; whist  crazy.. Early luncheons are given,  that bridge whist may be played  during the entire afternoon, and an  agreement had to be reached by  society people that bridge' whist  would stop at 5 o'clock togive time  for dinners and the theatre. ;  In William Butler> Whist Refer-  ence Book, published in Philadelphia in 1898, the' game of "bridge";  is thus described: "An offshoot or  variety of whist, played after the  manner of a dummy, with' certain  additions which greatly - facilitate  betting. Like 'Boston' and 'solo  whist' it lends itself readily to gam-j.  '. blitig, purposes, and it -is largely ���'  ���',* used at the clubs by those who play;  for money. It-is said to have origr  inated in Athens, and to have!  , spread whence to Russia and. France  ', and from one of these to England,  where iii 1897 it had become the  ^craze'.whiSiT^asviewell^withngraver  apprehension by the lovers of triiej  whist. In a letter received from,  Walter M. Deane of Bath under  date of September 0, 1897, occurred  this doleful observation: 'I-regret,  to say that whist is greatly on the  wane in England owing to the p.rev-  .. alence of a gambling spirit that has  favored the introduction of the  game of "bridge." It is with difficulty now that at some' clubs a  whist table can be formed.' Cavendish deplored the same state of  affairs, and had not been to the  Portland; club for over a year because 'bridge' was in full possession." .:.'.''  Presuming the reader to be  acquainted with whist, and without  pretending to suggest the disadvantages of this or -that play, the  ^essential changes in bridge-whist  may   be   briefly . described.-���  The  ��� cards are dealt as in ordinary whist,  ��� except   that   no trump is turned.  ��� The dealer has the privilege of  naming the trump and can. select  any suit or decide upon "grand,"  which means no trump at all; or lie  may leave it to his partner, saying,  "You make it, partner." In case  neither feels like making it, or  declaring "grand," the deal must be  played without trump. When  trump or "grand" has been declared  the player next the dealer has the  privilege of "doubling," which  means making trick points twice as  valuable. If his hand does . not  warrant this, he asks his  partner, "Shall I play ?" thus transferring the privilege. The latter  will either double or say, " Yes;" in  which cise play begins. If the  leading hand or its partner  ''doubles" the dealer and his partner  have the privilege of doubling again,  and this may go on indefinitely, if  the hands warrant. When one or  the other pair desires to stop they  "pass," and play begins. There is  no doubling in case trump is not  named or "grand" declared.  After the first card is played from  the leading hand the .'dealer's partner becomes a "dumihy," his hand  being exposed on the table.  When spades are trump each trick  above six counts 2 points.      *;'  When clubs are trump each trick  counts i points. .  When diamonds are trump each  trick counts G, points.  When hearts are trump each trick  counts 8 points.  "Doubling" increases the value of  extra tricks in proportion.  s.  3 honors count 4  4 honors count ".. 8  5 honors count 10  1 honors in one hand Hi  i honors in ono hand, ilfth in partner's hand 18  5 nonors in ono hand  20  When there is no trump���  3 aces betweon partners count 30  4 aces between partners count  40  4 aco3 in one hand 100  The honor counts do' not form a  part of the game score, but are  taken note of- in the settlement of  the wager made or record. The  maimer of keeping the score may  readily be seen by the following  example:  - honors. -  H. S. HOWLAND President.  D. R. WILKIE..'. ..General Manager.  E. HAY Inspector.

Three games constitute a rubber. In the illustration  D dealt first, made diamonds  trumps, and won-three tricks (18),  and held four honors (24). Second  .deal A made( hearts trumps, winning three by cards (24) and three  by-honors (16)., G's deal resulted in  a "little slam" (20), and7 six- tricks  (48), hearts being trumps, and four  honors in one' hand (G4), the trick  score closing'the game. B's deal,  no trump, resulted in three by card  (86Land_three^aces_(30).,making^d.  game. . D made,enough in his deal  to win the gameiand rubber. Hearts  were trumps and,the score "of four  tricks (32) and five honors (40)  being set down, the settlement was  made by adding the scores together,  both honors and tricks. Thus A  and B made 106 points, C and "D  246, to which are added 100 for  -winning the rubber,. 346 jn all.  Taking from this the 106 .made by  A and B, leaves a winning score of  240 points for C and D, as a basis of  settlement.' The element of chance  is quite large, and it is possible for  the winners of a rubber to lose by  score.   Meyerling Tragedy Recalled.  Memories of the terrible tragedy  'of Meyerling, which robbed Austria  of its crown" prince and emperor  Francis Joseph of his only son, have  been vividly recalled by the sudden  death in Rome of young'countess  Henry von Bylandt, sister of that  baroness Marie Vetzera who per-,  ished at the same time as the  ���crown prince. -- The countess, who  ���was four years younger than her  .sister Marie, and-the mother of a  lovely little girl of three, is reported-  here to have succumbed to poison,  and opinion is divided as to whether  her death was intentional or accidental. The general impression  here favors the former theory. For  the countess who bore the Christian  name of Jeanne, who was even still  more attractive than her sister  Marie, was subject at times to  terrible fits of depression, due to a  firm belief that her family was  burdened with some terrible curse.  It must be confessed that there was  much to strengthen this conviction  in the mind of & woman of such high  strung,   nervous    and    passionate  temperament as the countess.  In the -first place, there was the  question of her birth and that of  her elder sister, many people giving  credence   to   the   story that they  were daughters of emperor Francis  Joseph.   Her only brother, a promising young officer, perished in the  destruction of the Ring theater- by  fire in 188.1, when nearly one thousand persons lost their lives.   The  next to pass over to the majority  was baron Vetzera, who fell dead  in the street at Cairo one,day without a minute's warning. Then came  .the shocking tragedy at Meyerling,  where .baroness Marie Vetzera, on  learning that the crown prince had  been forced by his father to pledge  himself never to see her again, poisoned herself with strychnine, her |  imperial   lover    blowing    out   his  brains by her bedside. - Then there  was her favorite uncle, Henry Bal-  tazzi, who likewise met death at  Meyerling, whether at the hands of  the crown prince or at those of one  of. the   latter's   companions,   and  whether in the course of a conflict  or of a duel, remains shrouded in  mystery to this day.'  Her mother's exile from Austria  and the virtual ostracism. of the  family followed, the very. mention  of the name of Vetzera being sufficient to recall the tragedy. of  Meyerling and the part which  baroness Marie had played in the  affair. To such an extent did this  ostracism prevail that when count.  Henry Bylandt, nephew of the well-  known Dutch envoy qf that name,  who represented the Netherlands  for so many years in Vienna and in  London, became infatuated by her  beauty and sought - her hand in  marriage, he was forced to sever his  connection -with ?the diplomatic  service.. All these things weighed  upon the young countess Van  Bylandt; and there is every reason  to believe that she, too, has been  overtaken by the fate that seems to  dog the footsteps of * the house of  Vetzera, and that, unable. to bear  any longer .the dread of impending  disaster, she voluntarily took her  own life.

The members of-the Nelson fire  department are requested to meet  in the hall at 7:30 this evening.  Business of importance.  The local Laborers' Union are in  receipt of an. official letter from  Seattle warning laborers to give  that city a wide berth. There are  already too many idle men there.  About 11 o'clock last night the  infant child of E. Curran of the  Club hotel, died. The little one was  the first diphtheria case in Nelson.  The two others are progressing  favorably.  M. H. McLelland was fined $5 and  costs yesterday iu the police court  by mayor Fletcher on a charge of  assault. Macj while under the influence of liquor, boarded the  steamer Halys and when ordered  ashore abused and assaulted captain  West.  There will be a meeting of the  board of licensing commissioners  this afternoon, the chief business  being to consider the application of  Charles A.

Bella Devlin has transferred her  interests in the Lilly D. mineral  claim on Forty-nine creek to W. It.  Seatle, who has also acquired the  Golden City and Sunnyside claims,  adjoining* properties'. The- former  belonged to William Murphy and  the latter to Larry Gallagher. Mr.  Seatle is the gentleman who purchased the Houston block on Baker  street.' -  N Ttie office of the Hume hotel is  now in the hands' of Thompson '&  Kirby, painters and decorators, who  are giving it a thorough overhauling. When - they complete their  contract the place will be one of  the' pleasantest hotel corridors'in  the Kootenays. The hotel generally has had the spring cleanup.  The attic has also received attention and is now available for guests  who would otherwise have to be  turned away for want of sleeping  accommodations.  and when work is resumed it will'  be on a permanent, paying basis.  The Star has long been recognized  as one of the best properties in the  Sandon camp, and that it will maintain its reputation is the conviction  of all who know the property.  Back' From the War.  P. E. Simpson and T. L. McAllister, who joined the Strathcona  Horse in Nelson, have returned  from the seat of war, both looking  well and�� in,good health. The latter  had a severe attack of fever  while in Africa, and for a time his  life was despaired of. They both  agree that British Columbia is a  better country to live in than  Africa, especially for miners. They  say that there is not oue white man  in five hundred employed in the  mines of the Transvaal, all the  work being" done by blacks.  Two-Bit Meals.  For a considerable time past  there has been a lively competition  between some of the city hotels and  restaurants as to whieh would put  up the best 25-cent meal.- As long  as the competition lasted the  -boarders fared well, but, alas, the  days of the choice, cheap meals are  numbered. 'Within the past few  days three hotels have closed their  dining-room doors, and it is  rumored the others will follow or  raise the price. The three establishments in question have no liquor  license, and are realizing that there  is more profit in beer and whisky  at 15 cents per glass than there is  in dinners at 25 cents. It is  rumored that the 25-cent meal will  soon be a thing of the past in Nelson.*  From South Africa.  R. M. Macdonald is in receipt of  a letter from W. J. G. Dickson, who  left Nelson with the first contingent  for South Africa. The epistle is  dated from Lisbon, and states that  the writer is starting out with an  engineering party for Algond, in  Portuguese West Africa. He gives  a very hard account of the sufferings which the contingent endured  during active service, aud rejoices  that he is out of the fight. Patterson-,  another of the' Nelson men, has got  a commission in the Indian service.  Mr. Dickson hopes to.revisit Nelson  some of these fine days, and wishes  to be remembered Nto all enquiring  friends here.'* ' -  E3I.

A letter was received in Nelson  yesterday from one of the Nelson  members of the South African constabulary. It recited that within a  few days of the departure of the  force the non-commissioned officers  in B squadron had been changed,  the result being that W.J..

Under an arrangement into which  the Canadian Pacific and the White  Pass & Yukon have entered it will  bepossible-to cover the 4365 miles  from Montreal to Dawson in less  than eleven days. Those who make  the trip via this route will have the  assurance of comfort and pleasure,  as they will be carried on fast trains  and quick sailing steamers.- Another  important feature is a reduction in  the rate, owing to the route used  being shorter than heretofore. The  new schedule-agreed upon for the  approaching summer season is as  follows:  Route - Days Miles  Montreal to Vancouver     5       2906  Vancouver to Skagway     3 -    900  Skagway to White Horse     li       112  White Horse to Dawson      2        117  Totals    10J     4365  An Enjoyable Entertainment.

At noon on Monday tenders for  the $100,000 city debentures were  opened, and although competition  was not, very keen, the price realized is considered satisfactory, considering the depressed condition of  the money market generally. The  last issued sold at 103; the present  one brings 103 1-2, and at this figure iJLT{Ames ArCo. of Toronto secure  the Wnible Jot. The next highest  ,bid was 103, which came from the  Imperial Bank of Canada.  A Boat Race.  The steamers Kokanee and Kaslo  had'a somewhat exciting race the  other evening. The boats met at  Five-jnile point and froiri there engaged in the run to Nelson. They  have met before but the Kaslo has  proved herself the speedier of the  two. On the occasion of this race,  however, she had some 75 tons of  ore aboard and with the increased  draft which this occasioned she was  not able for her opponent. The  Kokanee got in a few lengths  ahead.           -.  *  The Slocan Star.  It is understood that the Slocan  Star will start up again on the 2nd  of April and that upwards of 100  men will be put to work. A couple  of millwrights left town the other  day to put the machinery in order,  and a big batch of miners are holding themselves - in readiness for a  call.   The mine is in splendid shape  and entertained a large and enthusiastic   audience.     There   was,   as  usual, considerable-difficulty in getting subjects, as people generally  do not relish being; made a laughing stock of.   However, some dozen  young lads and a few adults freely  offered their services, and then the  fun commenced.   The professor appeared to have   complete   control  over all and put them through the  most ludicrous performances, such  as horse racing with broomhandles,  boat rowing in tinpails, dog fighting, bee catching and stinging and  an endless variety of laughable positions.   There was not a dull moment in the entertainment, but the  fact that most of ..the subjects were  juveniles somewhat detracted from  its merits.   However, this was not  the professor's fault, as he appealed  earnestly but ineffectually to   the  audience to supply riper material.  One of his feats was to make a subject   perfectly rigid   and,   placing  him on the 'backs   of   chairs, had  three men  to stand-on the body,  whicli did not-.yield.an inch.   The  performance is one well worth attending,   and   as   the engagement  does not conclude for a couple of  nights more the opportunity should  not be lost.    Today the professor  will put a man to sleep in the window of Hunter & Co., and while the  subject   slumbers   the public will  have a view of him.    He will be  awakened at the opera-house tonight  at   8:30.   A matinee is announced for tomorrow afternoon.    .  PAINTERS'   UNION.  To let���Furnished rooms in Carney block.  Apply Miss Garrett.
