C, MONDAY, MARCH '25, 1901  PRICE FIVE CENTS  BOERS DIDN'T LIKE MILNER  WAR MUST NOW BE FOUGHT TO  BITTER END.  Isaac N. Ford, in His Weekly Oable  Letter, Discusses South African  and Other Matters.  of the  Milner  giving  finally-  Launching of Shamrock II.  Glasgow, March 24.��� Sir Thomas  Lipton was at Dumbarton yesterday  making arrangements to launch the  Shamrock II and the ceremony has  been definitely fixed for April 20.  New York, March 25.���The New  York Tribune publishes the follow-*  ing from Isaac N. Ford, their special  correspondent,'   dated   London,    1  a.m.:     The   chief   result   of   the  Saturday's session of commons in  which many amendments were upset was   the   admission from Mr.  Chamberlain   that   general  Botha  had raised strong objections, against  sir Alfred Milner as  civil administrator of the Transvaal.     It may  be inferred that the Boers will not  be prejudiced in favor of sir Alfred  Milner when they discover that he  was not disposed to offer the benefits  of   amnesty  to   Cape   and   Natal  rebels who had been fighting against  the empire.     The British government for some inscrutable reason  has   published the details  consultations of Kitchener,  and Chamberlain instead of  out the text of the terms  agreed upon.  "It has instituted in this a comparison between Kitchener's minimum,    Milner's     addendum    and  Chamberlain's maximum, and the  Boers will   have   the feeling that  their arch   enemy, as   they regard  the secretary of the colonies, intervened .to   render the terms more  drastic and less merciful.   This; it  i s felt, would have been avoided if  the   disagreements    between    the  commanding general, the high commission and the secretary of the  colonies  respecting the details had  been concealed and the revised text  published alone.   The course pursued   will   tend   to   embitter   the  Boers against sir Alfred Milner and  Mr.  Chamberlain.   Leader writers  agree that the' campaign must now  be fought   to ' the bitter end, but  themilitary assert that this is more  easily said   than done.   The main  object of the Boer leaders will be  to elude pursuit by receding - to inaccessible   sections  of the mountains, .prolonging   ih   this way the  period of disturbance when their  ammunition has run low and their  resources for guerilla warfare have  been exhausted.   They have nothing to lose, while ah army of. good  men .has little to gain  by the game  of hunting a fox to his hole.  The Boer women and children  are safe in British laagers and are  provisioned from day to day. The  Boers themselves can divide into  =:small=bands,=bafrle^their=pursuers*  and keep up a semblance of warfare by sniping and train wrecking.  Military men do not attempt to  forecast how long resistance of this  kind can be maintained by a. desperate and obstinate foe. They are  exasperated beyond measure when  they reflect that the largest British  army ever in the field, must be employed for ah indefinite period in  . warfare of this kind, with the mortality from disease constantly increasing.  No confirmation can be obtained  here of the American report that  the Chinese government has rejected the Russian convention respecting: Manchuria. Press dis-  .patoiies from ��� Shanghai report  that'the convention will be signed  early in the week. Lord Cran-;  borne's . explanations in the commons have been evasive and the inference from the German dispatches.  is that the Manchuria question was;  virtually settled secretly some time  ago outside of the concert.  ..

The attempt  last   week to dredge the channel  deep enough to float the challenger  failed owing to the shifty nature of  the bottom.

In this dilemma Mr. Watson  devised au ingenious plan.   This involves a huge  water-tight box of  sufficient buoyancy to   carry   the  whole   weight of the yacht.   The  box is being built around he/ under-  body   in , such a fashion that the  whole of the hollow between the  body of the yacht and the fin will  be filled up.

"  -  An Unwelcome Visitor.  A visitor from Coeur d'Alene has  troubled Nelson with his presence  for.,the past couple of months. He  gives his name as Michael Ryan  and he positively declares that he  is no Dago'. Twelve days ago Mike  was very drunk, and, endowed as  lie is with an unlimited vocabulary  of abuse, he fell into the hands of  the police. He was without funds  to7meet the stern demands of justice and took the alternative of ten  days! imprisonment. He was discharged on Saturday morning and  on Saturday night was found drunk  and disorderly at a moment when a  policeman was on the scene. Mike  resisted arrest until the first application of the new nippers was made.  This quieted his movements, but  had no effect whatever upon his  vocabulary. He,will appear before  the police magistrate this morning.  Timepiece and Trouble.  F. R. Raith will be brought up at  the police court this morning  charged with having in his possession stolen property. .On the. 15th.  of last' month George Mattheson  had his watch stolen. He reported  the matter to the police, who in the  course of their investigation found  that the prisoner had offered the  identical timepiece for -sale at a  local store. The watch had ,been  repaired by the man to whom it  was offered for sale and he at once  recognized the number. He so informed Raith and the latter  promply took the next but-bound  train. Returning to town Raith  was promptly arrested.  ;..,   -'    -  Riot at Racetrack.  Brussels, March 24.���The races  at Groenendael today were suspended on account of a riot among  the spectators.

Nothing was  known of the awful affair until her  husband, who was absent during  the night, returned home this  morning and found her in bed in a  semi-conscious condition. Her recovery is doubtful. It is thought  that she was temporarily insane on  account of domestic troubles.  THE INDEMNITY QUESTION  GREEDINESS OF SOME POWERS A  STUMBLING BLOCS.  Refused the Request.

Bubonic Plague' Increases.  Cape Town, March 24.���The bubonic plague continues to spread  here. There is an average of six  fresh.cases reported daily. Most of  the victims are colored people.  "  Peter Hartle, who went into the  Klondyke in the rush of-1897, was  in town on  Saturday visiting old  friends, who say that he looks as  young and vigorous as ever.     Pete  came down from the north early in  the   fall   with an' account to his  edit in the bank of some $30,000  ind ' properties   on   Bonanza   and  Gold Run creeks that, are valued  away up in the millions. . When he  left for the golden but frozen north  Pete was a sturdy bachelor, but  while up there he joined the ranks  of the benedicts.   It all happened  in this way.   The now Mrs. Hartle  owned a claim on Bonanza, adjoining   that   of   Mr.    Peter    Hartle.  Winters are lonely up there and  the   nights ' are   long,   and' during these long nights and severe  winter the respective claim owners  become   acquainted.     -Before  the  dawn of spring the marriage ceremony was performed and thei two  mine   owners united their  hearts  and fortunes.     The * union was a  happy   one, although   the honeymoon had to be postponed until the  season opened up.   Mrs. Hartle was  a Los Angeles belle; her good man  an Ontario' boy.   They have been  -visiting their friends and relations  for the past few months, but intend  returning to- the Klondyke, at an  early, date/  It -was while on- his trip to his old  home that Pete accidentally met a  brother of his who is .in the employ,  of the C. P. R. at Trail.   From this  gentleman he learned' that W.- J.'  MeLeod, ah old partner of his on  Silver creek in Washington,.was in  Nelson, and he determined to come  and see him.    Here also Mr. Hartle*  met old friends in the persons of J.  Dover and T. Madden, whom he has  known since 1885.    He presented  each of the trio with gold nuggets  taken, from his claims- in the Klondyke!   That given to Mr. MeLeod is  a particularly unique specimen, re-;  presenting as clearly as if- designed  for the purpose a goat andrider.*-  Mr. Hartle gives a very encouraging account of the Klondyke. He  states'that the surplus population  has been   forced   out or died-out,  and that .mining is now being conducted on business principles. During the early rush a most undesirable class flocked into the country���  men who, could not withstand the  rigors^ofthe^climate^andTWhoTwere"  totally unfitted  for such work as  they would   naiturally.be expected  to do. : Good, practical miners real-;  ized   the    advantages, which   the  Klondyke" offered and'stuck to the  country.   The   majority   of   those  who did so have no reason to complain.   Mr. Hartle says he expects  to see a great many people goin  this season and a great deal of gold  come out.   It is a pleasant trip to'  the   Klondyke > now, as  compared  with whafe it'was.when -first   he  shouldered his pack over the White  paS8.   /.,-..        _. . ..;  i  Japanese.Squadron Sails...  . London, March 24.���A Japanese;  squadron, admiral Tschuima.com  manding, left Nagasaki onSaturday j  for Korea, saysthe. Yokohama correspondent of the Daily Mail.   The;  general opinion here is' that   the'  situation is serious.     General in-'  structions have been issued by the*  minister of "war, general viscount;  Katzour,, to   the   commanders   of,  forts   fcb   attend-, a  conference   in  Tokio to consider questions of home  defence.   The war rumors are causing a fall in prices on the various  bourses.   The feeling of the coun-1  try is uneasy and intensely anti-i  ..Russian, but the cabinet shows' no;  indication of it's policy.  Terrible Mutilation.  Toledo, Ohio, March 24��� Mrs. G.  B. Brunschneider, residing near the  city limits, occupies a ward at St.'  Vincent's hospital and is in a seri-i  ous condition as a result oi injuries;  self-inflicted.     About five   o'clock  last evening, armed with an ordin-.  ary pair of scissors, she cut off all  the toes of her left foot, both her  ears close to the head and about an  inch off her nose.   She then cut out I to a partition of  Russia Scores Another Point.  London, March 25.���The dismissal of Leavy Brown from the position of director-general' of the Korean customs is regarded in London  as another score for Russia. In  1895 and again in 1898 Russian  pressure was exerted to procure his  removal. In the latter case he was  only reinstated after a British  squadron had moved to Chemuloro.  As recently as a few months ago  Russia strongly opposed an attempt  by Mr. Brown to raise a loan for  the Korean government to purchase  shares in the railway from Seoul  to Fu San. As a result of" her opposition the negotiations for the  loan failed. The St. Petersburg  correspondent of the Daily Mail asserts that M. Pavloff, Russian minister at Seoul, has protested against  Korea taking foreigners into the  government service with the-exception, of Russians- and demanded the  appointment of the latter, but Korea seemed determined, with  help of the powers, to defend  integrity.  HOW FRENCHMEN VIEW IT  Antagonism of Russia and Japan Likely  Develoi   Into Serious  Proportions.  to  the  her  CONSIDER  SITUATION IN CHINA  EXTREMELY  CRITICAL.  Think the United States' Proposals in  ,   Regard to Indemnity Likely  .' ..to Be Adopted.  '- New York, March '24���The Paris  correspondent of the New York  Tribune says: It is felt in" diplomatic circles here that the situation  in China is approaching a most dangerous crisis. Never at any moment were any misgivings entertained at the Quai d'Orsay about  the peaceful solution of the recent  Anglo-Russian dispute at Tien-  Tsin, that being regarded merely as  a case of two pugnacious fox terriers facing each other until withdrawn by their respective masters,  but what gives ris.e to genuine uneasiness in official circles here is the'  effect upon other powers; including  the United States, when the full  consequence of the formidable  position required by Russia in Manchuria are known and realized.  ^IHssignificantthatin-alPthe^dis-  cussions in regard to China it is  nowtactitly understood both here  and in Berlin that Manchuria is no  longer considered part of the  Chinese territory, being, excluded  politically and commercially from  the scope of any future agreements  in reference to China. This iri itself  is already a triumph for Russian  diplomacy and its disastrous effect  upon the open door policy, so far as  northern China is" concerned, is  accepted here as a foregone conclusion.  The view, at the French foreign  oflice is that the . proposals of the  United. States...in. .regard   to. the,  Chinese indemnity are likely event-:  ually to be adopted.' The sum of-  $200,000,000   to   be   .divided,    not;  equally among the powers,, but pro!  rata according to the expenses of;  the campaign, is considered fair and;  reasonable.   It   is now   indemnity  with China.   In conversation last;  evening with an important person-:  age   at   the Quai d'Orsay it   was  pointed out to me that with the exception of Russia   and   Italy    all  the powers agreed upon the necessity of the indemnity, whatever the:  sum demanded, being negotiated in,  a   block,   all   the   powers    actiug|  together,   because   if-    one    power     were     permitted    to     negotiate     separately    all     sorts     of'  givings and takings and swappings:  of   commercial    concessions     and-  territorial promises, would follow  and when the time of liquidation'  caiqe it would be found that the in-;  fluence   of   each power   in China  would be measured by the mortgage  acquired by   some   separate   and  often secrettreaty. As my informant  emphatically stated secret demand  for indemnity must lead logically  the empire.  New York, March 25.���The London'correspondent of the New York  Tribune, in a special cable dispatch  this   morning, says:- The railway  siding episode has been dismissed  as a trumpery affair over which the  sensational journals lost their heads.  A solution will readily be found for  what the Russians consider a trespass case and for what the English  regard as a minor territorial dispute.  The   indemnity   question is   more  serious,, since several' powera are  bent upon pressing their own claims  individually and are opposed to a  rational method of assessing a lump  sum for all the powers" oi* to scaling  down their demands to .a minimum  which will be within range 'of -the  financial resources of the Chinese  government.   There are bankers in"  every European capital who would  like the job bf floating a Chinese  indemnity loan, guaranteed by-the  powers, and   secured by  financial  control over the customs and taxes.  More serious than the indemnity  question is the antagonism of Japan  to Russia.   If the ulterior designs  of Russia in Manchuria have been  concealed   by    the   Anglo-German  agreement, it is no longer a secret  that neither England'nor Germany  will.offer resistance to them. Japan  has not been   allowed   to enforce  her demands upon the Korean' government and cannot depend upon  the support of Germany and England. - Nothingcan.be obtained by  diplomacy and unless Japan ' makes  a vigorous effort on.'"her- own .account, she will be compelled to witness Russian   absorption, of Manchuria   after   her   own   victorious  troops have been forced to retire  from   Port Arthur   and Wei Hai  Wei. If Japanese patience has been  exhausted, the movement - of a fleet  toward Korea may involve a determined effort to obtain compensation, even at the risk of war with  Russia.   England is-not likely to do  anything to prevent that war. Her  foreign policy now turns upon the  single' .pivot 'of   close   association  with Germany in Asia.  If some Washington rumOrs can  be accredited this partnership with  limited liabilities, may also be extended to America. There is; however, no confirmation from any  authoritative source here of the re-1  port that Germany has offered to  "eo^bperate-^withT"Ehgland���in any  attempt to abrogate the Clayton-  Bulwer treaty.  The government here continues  to show signs of dissolution and incapacity.     Mr. Balfour is not leading the commons well aud there are  murmurs of discontent among his  followers   over   his indolence and  lack of aggressiveness. Last night's  debate over' his ignorance in the  railway   siding    affair   was   particularly damaging to him,  as  it  exposed him to merciless ridicule.  Mr. Chamberlain is constantly gaining importance as the only member  of    an    invertebra   cabinet   who  has     a    stiff     back     bone'  s'aud^  always      ready��< ,v fSip?'   ii^lit.'  strength is clearly shown in  revision   of- lbftl   Kitchener's  terms of peace.   A weak minister'  would have taken refuge under lord  Kitchener's reputation' of being a  cold, heartless, unsentimental sol--  dier and administrator and would1  have  allowed   him   full  discretion;  and held him responsible for the  consequences.       Mr.   Chamberlain,  took a practical, businesslike  view  of the matter and declined to become a   party to   an unreal   and  unsatisfactory peace.    Mr.  Chamberlain's fighting power is the more  conspicuous as Mr. Balfour's inertia  increases,   and   it. becomes    more  necessary   when   the Liberals are  more aggressive  and harassing in  their warfare.   Mr. Massingham is;  doing   good   service for  them by  writing bracing and caustic reports  of the proceedings   of parliament  for the Daily News  and there is a  revival of Liberalism in the country, even if lord Rosebery has gone  to the Riviera without dining in  public at the same table with sir  William Vernon Harcourt.  Mr. Chamberlain is so .well able  is  His  the  Strikers Quiet, ' ' ���' ��� '  Marseilles, March 21.���The proposed arbitration of the differences  involved in the strikes has led to a  general relaxation in the situation.  The measures of the police are now  less strict. All troops have been removed from the streets and other'  public places, although retained  under arms in barracks.

Clearfield, Pennsylvania, March;  24.���A disastrous freight wreck oc-;  curred at Kerrmoor, twenty miles  south of here, on the Beach Creek  division of the New York Central  railroad today,. Twenty-one cars  were smashed.

Great men  are sometimes embarassed by their  brothers.    Cecil Rhodes, at a critical stage in South African  history,  had a-brother in Johannesburg who  was managing a reform movement  and corresponding with Dr. Jameson.   Some South Africans believe  that the Jameson raid might have  been   avoided' and the Boer war  -avoided if Cecil Rhodes had acted  upon his own judgment. Mr. Chami-  berlain's     brother,    Arthur,     has  brought suit for clearing his character against the charges made by  partisan journals, based, upon the.  dealings of various companies which  supplied the government with war  material.   Arthur Chamberlain has  proved an excellent witness- under  a protracted cross-examination conducted with   skili  by Mr.. Isaacs,  a young barrister, who is making a  sudden' reputation in this case. But  the   issue   is    uncertain,   even "if  Chamberlain has sir Edward Clarke,  the leader of the. English bar, to  plead for him, since the defendant  disclaims any attack upon him and  urges that the system of' military-  supplies was a legitimate matter for  newspaper comment and criticism.  Sir Edward Clarke, lost" a seat ih  parliament and probably 'the lord  chief justiceship through his hostility to "the British- policy in South  Africa, yet he is   conducting'-the  case for Arthur Chamberlain, if not  for the defence when Dr..

'  .That American bankers will take  in part bf these loans is taken for  granted by  the street with, comfortable optimism and" large'' ship'-,  ments of gold from New York fare  predicted with confidence.

The Victoria Times is sore,because Joe Martin, in' the legislature,  resented - the insult which E. V.  Bodwell offered to premier Dunsmuir.       .__  -  Those who complain about ��� the -  increase in the provincial, revenue.  or school .tax are neither willing .to.  pay for the school accommodations  they demand nor willing to have  the school expenditures reduced- so  that they could be met without-increased . taxation.  IPt  pi.:  mrA 7  msss  hmss  ���-]*:���.'���  Vrfrx'  7 7x  \.  m  VA  T'Vi'  yy  \0-:  If it should happen- that the  Canadian senate for a second time  ���"thTe"w-oiit-the-railway-schemes~of~  Mackenzie and Mann and their  United States allies, it would ensure  for itself a new lease of life. Even;  recognition was denied the senate  until it threw out Mackenzie and.  Mann's Yukon railway, scheme.  LinERAL newspapers are an-,  nouncing that H. H. Cook must  appear before the senate's investigation of his charge that he was.  offered a senatorship for $10,000.  In this connection it may be said  that Mr. Cook has so far exhibited,  more eagerness to appear than the  Grit members of the senate ��� have  shown for the creation of the in - ���  vestigating committee.  The circumstances that it may  suit the purposes of the Canadian  Pacific, and; Hill ....railway,-, interests  to arrive at a mutual understand-:  ing withrespect to new. rail ways-in  British Columbia, should not influence the provincial legislature in  the least. Railway companies may.  be trusted to look after their own  interests, but it is rather new doctrine that they can be entrusted to  look after the public interest as  well.   E. M. Johnson was one of .the  principal speakers at the recent:  mass meeting in which the people  of Victoria undertook to shape -the  provincial government's railway  policy. First of all, he said, he was  for Victoria; the province could  pome afterward.   He then proceed-  Hon. J. H. Ross, commissioner to  the Yukon, in speaking recently of  the future of the Northwest, made  the prediction that when provincial  powers are conferred upon the  Territories they will not be required  to vote one dollar or one acre of  land as a subsidy for railway building. He predicts that the rivalry  between .the Canadian Pacific and  the Canadian Northern railway  systems will eliminate the bonus  feature of railway construction.  ��� The action of the citizens of Victoria in .trying to intimidate the  -Victoria members of the legislature  into supporting the demand of the  Victoria,-Vancouver & Eastern promoters for a million dollar subsidy,  will doubtless - be resented-by the  members of the house. In impugning the honesty of the premier, because he did not, readily fall, in  with the ���. views of the' Victoria,  Vancouver & Eastern boosters, the  people of Victoria have made a mistake, and one for which they  should very properly be brought to  task.           Slocan's Working. Mines.  Mining Review.  The ore shipments from Whitewater for last two weeks were Sunset 00 tons.  The value of the American Boy  shipments for -February amounted  to $10,000, and the roturns from 70  tons brought in $3640.  , It is reported .that a rich strike  has been, made on the' Rambler-  Cariboo. Two carloads of ore are  reported to nave- netted the company $7500j  Thirty men are employed on the  Hartley and six on the- California.  Both properties have made good  showings lately and are shipping  ore:  William-Letterick has a contract  of sinking a drift, of 25 feet .in the  Ruby-., at   New-,. Denver���,   The ore  taken.out last year .was found-..to:  contain, gold and silver.  ���;_ 'The strike recently-made in" the,  Noble Five is simply a continuance  of  one- of- the -leads of/the Last  Chance across that property. - It is  a' very large seam of high grade ore -  and when-being stoped will put the  Noble Five in-its' old time activity  again. . n  ' The Star will increase its force t'oi  about 110 early next month. This  will be as large a force as the property ever .employed. Ore of a high;  grade is showing up well in all the  stopes; In some of them the quality is the best ever found on the  property.   Another.Big Moyie-Mine.  Moy e Leader.  The expected has happened���the  ore body on the Aurora property  on the west side of the lake has  been encountered. Some days ago a  ledge of four feet of concentrating  ore was struck,, but after drifting-,  about 20 feet further on a three;  foot ledge of solid galena was eh-,  countered.    These  two ledges are  parallel with each other and are:  well defined.   The strike was made  in the crosscut of the No. 1 tunnel,,  which.is now in a distance of 300  feet.   This crosscut leaves the main  tunnel 100 feet in from the mouth,  and runs in. a northerly direction.  At the end of the crosscut it is estimated that a depth of at least 200  feet has been attained.  The strike on the Aurora is. one  .of the. most important:ever made in;  the camp.   It has always been con-i  tended by mining men that the St.;-  Eugene lead extended across the  lake, and this theory is now apparently verified.   It also adds another  substantial mine to the camp, andi  one which no doubt with development will prove almost equally as.  valuable, as the S t. Eugene.  The Aurora is owned by Thomas,  Rader, O. J. Johnson and captain I.:  B. Sanborn. Mr. Sanborn at the  present time is in the Atlin district.!  It is the intention of the owners to  continue work on the property in a  small way for a time yet, before  launching out on a larger scale.  For Another Year.

He   had   acted as  Capper and Plugger for all sorts of  Shady   Enterprises    and    he   had  helped to operate every variety of  Skin Game on the   Farmers who  , come out of the Union Station carrying Telescope Valises and Shoe  Boxes full of Lunch.    He had given  the   Bazoo   and the neat   Double  Cross and the quick Zing-Zing to  Cattlemen who hang around and-  ' invite   Trouble   after   they    have  drawn their Money.    He stood in  with   the   Police   and    knew    an  Alderman   and   the   Law had   no  Terrors   for  him.     In    fact,   the  Grafter thought he was one of the  Brightest and Best. When the Pish  were running and the Nets came up  heavy-he would wear a large Stone  iu front and   smoke   a   15-Center  with a Gold Label on it and feel  sorry for the Tads that "were putting   down   the Cedar Blocks for  $lslO a day.    One spring there was  , an Election coming and the Reform  Element  had to be    soothed   and  jollied, so the Authorities suddenly  discovered that the Town was Bad  and closed everything tighter than'  a Drum.   The Pool Rooms, Poker  Joints, Brace Faro Games, Policy  ��� Shops, Opium Dens, Crap Parlors,  and in fact" nearly all the Sporting  Centers, except the Stock Exchange,'  put up the-Green Shutters and went  out of Business until the periodical  ��� Spasm had'played- itself out.   The  Police,   were     so    Vigilant    that  anyone who dropped a Penny in the  Slot to get a stick of-Wintergreeh  Gum- was. taking, his Life in' his  " Hands. .  - During this Season of Depression  the accomplished City Grafter decided that he would go. out among  the Jays andiryto scare up two or  three Green "Wrappers for his rapid:  ly diminishing Roll. He had a  Scheme for coaxing Money out of  those who want to' get Something  for Nothing and think- they are  Cute enough to beat the Sharper at  his own Tricks. His Lay "was. to  sell 18-Carat Jewelry and Alaska  Diamonds at a Nominal Price, in  order to introduce the Goods, and  then put Real Money in the Boxes  as an Extra Inducement. One  Corner of the Greenback was allowed to Protrude as an evidence  of Good Faith, yet it may be unnecessary to add that no one - but  _tlie~Booster~ever~got~a=_G1ash���Prizer  The Grafter had a Satchel filled  with Tin Jewelry and Alaska Diamonds, just received from the Glass  Works, when he descended on a  flag Station called Nubbinville,  which is near the Jumping-Off  Place in Pike County. It was one  bf these Towns that eeemed, to be  trying to" hold two Farms apart.  ,When you are passing it on a Train  it Leaves Off and you are out in the.  Country again before you have time  to ask the Name.  It looked very Yappy to the  well-dressed Shark "from the City  and he hoped to; do well. He stood  up on a Dry Goods Box at the  Principal Corner and made a Hurry-  Up Call and began to give . away  "Friendship" rings in order to whet  the Interest. Just as he was elucidating his Unselfish Motives for the  benefit of the Male Residents, who  were looking up at him with their,  Mouths open, the Town Marshal  came racking down the middle of  the Street with a piece of Sapling  in one Hand and a Tin Star on his  Coat. The Marshal needed Money  that Day. He drew a Salary every  Month, but it was so Small that if  it had been paid to him in Pig Iron  he could have carried it Home all  right. But he got his Bit every  time he Pinched any one, so he had  to Arrest somebody about once so  often in order to have enough for  Groceries and Fuel. The Official  did not find it advisable to put his  Constats into the Cooler, because he  was around.every Year asking them  to vote for him.

So the Representative of the Dignity and Majesty of the Law broke  through the Crowd and introduced  himself.     "If   you are the Town  Marsha], as you say, I will ask you  totremain here while I am giving  my Lecture and   Free Entertainment, and if any one- makes any  Trouble you arrest him," quoth the  diplomatic Grafter,   who   thought  .that a Calm Bluff would smooth  everything.   But the Town   Marshal was not to be Waved aside.  He said he wanted $2 for a License  Fee right away or he would put the  Grafter into the Hen-House so quick  it would make his Head swim.    So  the   Grafter   gave   up. Two    and  started in to   mix   up the Little  Boxes and the Town Marshal arrested him for Swindling and led  him over ��� to   the Calaboose.   The  next thing to do was to send for  the Squire.   He was out trimming  a Hedge, but when he heard that  there was some Easy Money down  town, he put on his Black Coat.and  got out his Revised  Statutes.    The  Squire   and    the    Town    Marshal  backed   the   Grafter  up into   one  Corner of the Calaboose and made  him   stand   for   a Search.     They  found nearly $80 on him, so they  advised him to get a Lawyer and  told him they would do the Fair  Thing by him and give him a Jury  Trial.   They had a   good deal of  Local Pride and were down on all  Confidence Games, so they did not  want to see any  of that ill-gotten  Money taken out of Town.  The Marshal happened to have  twelve   Personal Friends who   had'  not been Working for a' number of.  years, so   he.went -to the. General;  Store, where, -they ^ were 7 wont  to  Congregate-aud Criticise the Government, and summoned therui to  serve as Jurors.    He "told them it  would not   take   long -because the  man was guilty.   At the Trial the  Prosecutor made a pathetic Spiel  about   the ' Honest. Wor king. Man  who is done out  of his Money,by  Designing Villains who live in the  City.   The Peers who were trying  the Case   shifted   their Cuds and  looked Serious.   The Attorney for  the Defendant collected his Fee in  Advance   and "then    advised   his  Client _to Plead Guilty.   When the  Evidence was   in   the Squire gave  the Twelve Good Men and True a  few Instructions.    He said if they  found the Defendant Guilty they  would receive $1.25 each in the way  of   Fees.   If   they found him Not  Guilty they would   get what   the  boy shot   at.   The  Jury was out  about-Four Minutes~by the~~Watchr  They Soaked him $10 and Costs,  especially the Costs, because that is  where   the- Home Talent came in.  By the time the Squire, the Marshal, the Prosecutor, the Attorney  for the Defense, the Clerk and the  Twelve Jurors cut into the Eighty,  they had it reduced to $53.75.  After the Prisoner had settled,  the Squire took him aside and told  bim he hoped tihere would be no  Hard Feelings as they merely done  their Duty, and to prove, to him  that they didn't have It: in for him,  they would permit him to Sit'in a  little Game of Poker in the back  room of the Harness Shop. They  knew that he had the $53.75. The  misguided Grafter thought he saw  a chance to pull back some of his  Stuff, so he willingly consented to  take a few s Hands. Now, a Man  never knows what Poker is until,  he gets into one of these Country  Games back of the Harness Shop.  The Outsider who butts against  that Outfit might as .well Hand  them his Money when he goes in  and then start for Home and" get  some Sleep. No matter how .long  he stays or how Close he plays  them, the Local Combine is going  to'Trim him, and .trim .him Right,  because they need the Money. They  can't Lose. They are the Boys who  invented Poker. They may not  wear the Link Cuff-Buttons and  Red Vests or be Up on the Songs of  the Day, but when it comes to  Realizing on what they Hold they  are so many Calla Lilies.  All the Money that went into the  Cut-Throat Game was Money that  the Grafter had brought into Town  with him. The Squire, the Clerk,  the -Prospector, the Attorney for.  IMPERIAL BAIK  HEAD  OFFICE.

Hill is .seeking the  rights of the Republic & Kettle  River Railway Company not only  appears true, but that he really is  very anxious to acquire them is  given out here as an absolute fact  by parties in a' position to know.  .In conversation with one tof the  directors of the Republic & Kettle  River Railway Company last evening it has. been learned that the  maps, alignment and general field  notes and all the other documents  required have been forwarded to  the commissioner of Indian affairs  at Washington, the copies of the  maps of the road have been served  on the Indian allottees and the  Indian agent of the Colville reservation, that other proceedings  necessary to be taken in the matter  of completing" the right of way  are now on foot and that every  other step has been taken that  is needed'to carry out the. requirements of the government for the  purpose of obtaining the right of  way over the reservation.  In support of ��� this information a  number of blue prints of the terminating survey of the" road being  made were 'at the Republic mine  company's offic&tooms, but nothing  could be learned at that time in  reference to what they were intended for or what else was being  done. It has always been stated  here by the directors .of the company that the railway would be  built this year; and the assurance  has come from one of the most  prominent members of the board of  directors that' the Republic &  Kettle River Company will undoubtedly build it. It seems very  probable that as soon as the preliminaries are completed the construction of -the. roadbed will be  started and - pushed as rapidly , as  possible^ and no time will be lost in  finishing the road.  Rev. R. Edward Robie has been  pastor of the Congregational church  at Greenland, New Hampshire, for  50 years. Dr. Robie is regarded as  one-of-the���strongest-men-iu-the-  ministry of his state. Two of his  brothers are clergymen.  BOARD   OF   HEALTH  REGULATIONS  For the Prevention of the Spread of  Smallpox in the City of Nelson.

There is a  big program of business, including  some important suggestions from  electric light superintendent McPhee.  Contractor Hepburn is engaged  in fitting up the old miners' union  hall for the board of trade. When  the terms of his specifications are  complied with the meeting place of  this important body will be worthy  of the name.  The Sfcrathicona mineral claim  was registered, on Saturday, the  locators being George Sherwood  and D. S. Stanley! The property is  situated on Toad mountain, about  three miles from Nelson, on the  Silver King road.  Petrie#and Hanson (nationality  suggested by name) are two men  gathered in by the police for indulging in a fight at the corner of  Josephine and Vernon streets.;  What=th^B=stakes=or=mistakes=weive:  will be investigated at the police  court this morning.  Mike Keeley has bonded the  Elcho Monarch, about half a mile  from the Queen Victoria, on Victoria mountain, to A. McDonald  and P. Cunningham. The consideration is. $1500, of which $250 has  been paid down, the balance to be  paid thirty days from date.  An individual who had enjoyed  more of the hospitality of his  friends than he bargained for was  yesterday offered the kindly services of a sympathizer. On being  asked his address tho hospitality-  OUR CHINESE "BRETHREN"  Introduced by Pastor Morgan.  There was a big congregation at  the Baptist church yesterday evening to hear pastor Morgan discuss  the subject, "Christ and the Chinese  Problem." The reverend gentleman handled his subject from the  purely scriptural or Christian point  of view, but gave some historical  data from which he argued that  the Chinese are unfairly treated in  the west���in fact that Great Britain  by forcing the opium trade on the  Mongolians was responsible for all  the trouble. The Chinaman, according to the preacher, is our elder  brother and should be treated as  such and not subjected to that  mean, hateful, contemptible usage  accorded him. The sacred command is "Love thy neighbor as  thyself," and on the same authority  it was stated that "he who hateth  his brother is a murderer."  The pastor did not deny that the  presence of Chinamen in this province might be a menace to the  workingman,' and rejoiced in the  knowledge thalt a commission waa  inquiring into the subject, but he  contended that from the Chinaman's  point of view it should be conceded  that the Oriental element was not  properly treated. There was, he  said, a great outcry against Chinamen in this Dominion, more particularly in British Columbia. Assuming that there were 50,000 Chinamen in Canada, and that each of  these sent out of the country annually $200, or $10,000,000, was this  to be considered a great loss to a  nation that squandered $100,000,000  a year in liquor? Here in Nelson  there was a bitter feeling7 against  the Chinese. Ib was alleged that  their immorality was shocking���  that they were opium smokers and were addicted to  all classes of vice, yet the people  who raised their voice against the  Chinese seemed to overlook the fact  that there -were in the city houses  of prostitution���removed, ib was  true, from the east end, but conspicuously present, aud saloons and  drunkenness. Before the Chinese  were run into the sea it would be  well to run these offenders against  law and morality into the lake. In  conclusion the reverend gentleman  censured the churches of the- city  for making no' attempt to evangelize the Chinese.  The sermon waa the first one  preached in Nelson on the-topic,  and ��� the views . expressed by the  preacher came somewhat as a surprise. It was decidedly a plea for  the Chinamen, and an effort to.  minimize the evil effects of cheap  ZE3I.    ZB^SriEZRS   &;   OO.  3STE3r.S03N*  KASLO  s-AJsriDoasr  STOVES!   STOVES!

A Matter of Money.  Board of trade secretary Sjvan  nell was again around on Saturday  looking up eligible subscribers to  the   fund   to   send  a delegate to  Ottawa in the refinery and Jbonus  proposition.
