 ��� j''.,.'  DAILY EDITION   BY MAIL  F/VE  DOLLARS A YEAR  WEEKLY EDITION ��Y MAIL  TWO DOLLARS A YEAR  :7yyMSi^M  :.x:;yw^yy$&*i��  Vi  NINTH YEAR.  THE TRIBUNE: NELSON, B. C, WEDNESDAY MORNING, APRIL 3, 1901  PRICE FIVE CENTS  GENUINE HYPNOTISM SEEN  i  lx  AND PRONOUNCED UPON BY AN  INDEPENDENT COMMITTEE.  Painless Dentistry���Pulsation and Temperature Controlled���Hypnotized  By Telephone.  A party of well-known  citizens  enjoyed a genuine performance last  night,   given   by E.   Sutcliffe,   to  demonstrate the bona fides of the  science of hypnotism.     Nelson has  been visited   by   hypnotists from  time to time, but as some at least  of those on the platform  were in  the employ of the "professor" many  people are disposed to believe that  there was some collusion between  the operator and subject.     There  could be no such suspicion as to last  night's tests, as all parties concerned  are residents of the city.     Shortly  after 8 o'clock five volunteers had  assembled at Mr. Sutcliffe's store, and  from there they proceeded  to the  ��� office of the Lethbridge Coal Company on Baker street, accompanied  by alderman Selous, Dr.  Quinlan,  Dr. Symonds, Messrs. Melville Parry,  Dixon of   the   Kootenay   Electric  Supply Company,  Beaven   of   the  Bank of Commerce, Winter of the  Bank of Montreal, Martin of the  Kootenay   Supply   Company,   and  other prominent citizens.    Mr. Sutcliffe gave  each of his subjects a  number and going to Dr. Symonds'  office, across the street, called them  in consecutive order to the  'phone  and   put* each in sound  hypnotic  sleep. . Then returning to the coal  office he ranged his subjects in line,  commanding the one to look at th'e  back of the other, and in this order  marched - them   down   to   Robie's.  Here, in the presence of the gentleman     above    named���a      critical  and   exacting   committee.���he   put  his subjects through a varied performance, such as orchestral work',  drilling under the impression that  they were going to South Africa,,  etc.    One subject delivered a very  practical address ou temperance, in  the course of which he, laid it down  as bad policy for a man to "gin-up  a friend who would not giu  him  up."   Another   hypnotized   orator  predicted   that   hypnotism   would  take tho place of medicine in a few  years from date.  When taken from  under the influence none of the subjects had the remotest idea of what  they   had   been   doing or   saying.  One   of them had a   troublesome  tooth and was anxious-to have it  drawn,    provided   the    operation  could be performed without pain.  He   was   taken   to   Dr.   Quinlan's  office,      hypnotized,       and       the  doctor abstracted the tooth, his pa-   tient_nob_experiencing_a_sensation  of pain. The doctor declares that  the tooth was one of the worst and  hardest to deal with he had ever  encountered. Another very interesting test was that made in pulsation and temperature. The pulsation of the subject was raised or  lowered at the will of the operator,  as was also the temperature. Dr.  Symonds made the tests and announced the variations which occurred. Then Mr. Sutcliffe invited  those present to name any hypnotic  test thoy might have seen and  undertook to duplicate it. A few  were^ried successfully. Not in a  single instance did he fail. The  committee pronounced the performance ah Entire suc'Ces and are determined that Mr. Sutcliffe shall give  another entertainment if they can  persuade him to do so. This was  genuine hypnotism.,  its annual session in Miners' Union  Hall yesterday, under the presidency of James Wilks. There was  a large and representative attendance, but as the proceedings were  conducted with closed doors, the  public will not know what went on  until the business concludes. However, among other topics discussed  yesterday was that of the proposed  bonus to a refinery. No definite decision was arrived at when the  meeting adjourned to meet again  this morning.

But one of the couple  appeared before the magistrate, and  she was fined $10 and costs, but  being of the colored race she did not  blush, perceptibly, when found  guilty of- the charge preferred  against her.

Western Federation of Miners.  District Association No. 0, Western Federation of Miners, opened  Furious Driving.  Owen Thomas and Philip Wade  were yesterday fined costs of court  and received a sound lecture from  mayor Fletcher on the dangers of  furious driving on the public streets.  Their plea was not that their horses  had had too much oats, but that  they were pacers and hard to hold  in. Of late there have been numerous complaints as to the speed at  whicli drivers urge their horses  along crowded thoroughfares and  over street crossings on which  pedestrians are supposed to enjoy  safety. "  - '  A Mammoth Scheme.  The London county council is becoming the greatest exemplar in  the way of big social schemes. Glasgow used to show the way; but it  will soon be left behind. The housing committee of the London county  council has just prepared a scheme  which dwarfs all previous efforts at  housing. It is proposed to purchase  an estate on the outskirts of the  city, and on this land to build 5779  cottages to accommodate over 42,000  -persons;���If the���projectj-which_is"  to cost ��1,530,858, is ' carried out'  this will really be a model  town. The cottages, which are to  be of .a varied architectural tppe,  will each have a small garden. A  public garden of about two acres  and a quarter in extent is to be provided on the banks of the river  Moselle, which runs through part of  the ground to be dealt with, and  doubtless other amenities will be  given. The whole scheme of the  committee has been drawn up on a  self-supporting basis. The further  development of this hugej housing  proposal will be followed; with interest by the whole country.  Work in Mines to Resume.  . Cape Town, April 2-^Lord Kitchener has granted permission to  three Rand - mining companies,  which latter* will be increased to  seven, to resume work with fifty  stamps each, provided the maximum wages paid to miners be five  shillings a day, equal to the wages  pf the regular troopers, to prevent  discontent among the latter. The  remainder of the miners' ordinary  pay will be devoted to a fund for  the benefit of the families of residents of the Rand, killed in the war.  The Transvaal chamber of mines  has issued a circular objecting. to  these wages and the conditions of  work.  St. Petersburg, April  2.���The  superior councillor   of the Chinese  legation, Chu We Jte, is continuing  the   negotiations   as    charge   ' d'  affaires regarding-the Manchurian  agreement.     The. illness    of    the  Chinese minister, Yang^Yu, is now  admitted to be due to apoplexy,  which will incapacitate him from  work probably for a long period. It  is    said    that    the   loss   of   half  his estate through the destruction  of a Chinese bank, combined with  political caies, is undermining his  health.  Unofficial observers scarcely understand how a doubt can be  possibly entertained   abroad that  China   will ultimately accept the  Russian conditions after it shall be  apparent that no power is  willing  forcibly to interfere,    For, as it is  urged,   while Russia' undoubtedly  prefers to carry through her plans  as made;   her diplomatic position  would suffer as little as her military  position from China's refusal to accept what Russia regards as moderate conditions of withdrawal;  The correspondent here of the  Associated Press knows nothing  about Russia's plans in the event of  China's refusal to sign the agreement, which is certainly not anticipated here now. But a Chinese  refusal could easily cause Russia to  drop all negotiations. She might  say: "Very well, this ends the  matter. We desired to leave Manchuria, but yoii prevent our leaving  on terms consistent with the promotion-of our railroad and qthey.  interests.": It might easily happen  that Russia would regard as an  actuality the contingency mentioned  in the August circular as a possibility, that is, that the powers by  warning China against accepting  the Manchuria arrangement yesterday rendered impossible the withdrawal of Russia.  that the capital would be $32,000,-  000 in common and preferred stock  and debenture bonds. Of the debentures $1,000,000 would remain in  the treasury. The same authority  declared the report to be substantially correct in its mentioning as  those interested in the new deal J.  Pierpont Morgan, August Belmont,  W. Seligman, J. Seligman and the  president of several of the most  extensive banking houses in New  York city.  Plague in San Francisco.  Washington, D.C., April 2.���The  plague situation at San Francisco is  summarized in a statement published in this week's issue of the  public health report of the marine  hospital service, which is just out.  This statement shows there have  been ten cases of the plague in San  Francisco officially reported since  the beginning of the year. All of  them were fatal.  AGUINALDO SOON WEAKENS  THE REBEL CHIEF TAKES OATH  OF ALLEGIANCE.  McArthur Hopes for Much Aid From  the Noted   Insurgent���How  Washington Views It.  Campbell and Boers Scrap.  New Castle, April 2.���The Boers  derailed and wrecked a train near  Mount Prospect. Subsequently  general Campbell's column attacked  them and heavy fighting ensued.  General Campbell was at a disadvantage owing to the mist on the  hills.   The result is not known bere.  Loomis Is Persona Non Grata.'  Port of Spain, Island of Trinidad,  via Haytian cable, April 2.���The  United States auxiliary cruiser  Scorpion has been ordered to convey  Francis B. Loomis,- the ' United  States director at Caracas, Venezuela, to San Juan de Porto Rico,  where he will embark on a steamer  for New York. President Castro is  personally hostile to Mr. Loomis,  because the latter has protested  strongly against the non-payment  of~large sums due to Americans  after the president had solemnly  promised to pay the Americans before any other foreign claim. Mr.  Loomis discovered that the president was secretly paying German  claims.        The Eight-Hour Day.  London, April 2.���As a result of  the disaffection existing among the  Lanarkshire miners and engineers,  2000 of whom are idle, owing to a  strike for an eight-hour day, some  of the ironmasters took,, st^ps to  damp down their furnaces tonight  and the steel makers will stop their  mills. The railroads, enabled by  the slackness of work, are sending  engineers and shunters to. some of  the mines. Some of the smaller  collieries have declined the^: eight-  hour day demanded by th6 strikers.  Foreign Competition Hurts.  London, April 2.���The president  today at a meeting of the Barrow  Steel Company, the duke of Devonshire, lord president of the council,  took a pessimistic view of American and other foreign competition.  He said the total orders for rails  given to British makers in 1900 did  not reach 50. per cent of the orders  giving during the preceding four  years. Competition did not account  for the absolute decrease. Either  less rails were required or buyers  were waiting in expectation of  lower prices.  The Salmon Trust.  New York, April 2,���TJie Journal  of Commerce says : A prominent  New York financial authority who  is personally interested in the proposed salmon combination reported  from San Francisco la9t night - said  Coal Prices.  New York, April 2.���The new  anthracite schedule has just gone  into effect the rate for the spring  opening is $4 a ton, a reduction of  about 25 cents from the winter  schedule just abrogated. The new  schedule for the coming year is $4  for the spring, $4.25 for the summer  and $4.50 for the winter period.  TROUBLES OF THr ALLIES  News Notes From China.  Pao Ting Fu, Saturday March  '30th, via Pekin, Sunday March 31st  by post to Chee Foo.���Though Pao  Ting Fu may be 'reached in a few  hours by railway, it is practically  unknown to foreigners now in Pekin. Marvelous stories and rumors  pass as current facts, but are entirely without, foundation. After  the reoccupation' of Pao Ting Fu  an agreement was entered into between the allies aiid the Chinese  that the former should not advance  beyond the province of Chi Li and  that the latter-- shojildlnot. go beyond ten miles inside of Shah ~ Shi  province. The Chinese have frequently broken tliat agreement and  have been attacked by both Germans and French in different parts  of the province.  Chi Li at present has 10,000  Chinese troops commanded by Liu  Kluants, the famous " Black Flag  leader, who are within twelve miles  of Puo Lee, where there are 3000  French troops who are anxious to  make an attack, but are restricted  by positive orders from Pekin. M.  Pichon, the French minister, having  informed general Vyron, commanding the French troops, that he had  received instructions from France  to the effect that the. government  did not desire aggressive action on  the part of. the troops. Provided  the Chinese shall not advance there  is littlp chance of collision  Early in March 150 Germans were  attacked near the border and two  men were killed. Two thousand  soldiers entered Shan Si province  through the Ante Suling pass,  driving the Chinese beyond Shai  Quan and then retiring to Ante  Suling, where they are now in camp.  French officers state that Shan Si  has a different people from Chi Li  province, the inhabitants being  more arrogant and daring the  foreign troops to enter. The French  have large supplies at Chen Ting  and Huo Lee, including camel  trains. Pao Ting Fu ~ is entirely  peaceful and its condition is better  than that of auy other province occupied by the allies.  Pekin, April 1.���Count von Waldersee has ordered the generals  commanding the allied troops, and  has requested.the other.;generals, to  confer with the winter^ palace regarding the instructions to be given  the ministers as to what military  action is necessary to be taken  under articles 9 and 10 of the joint  note.  Tien Tsin, April 1.���Captain Barret of the Burmah troops was assaulted with sabers by seven  Frenchmen last night. He was not  dangerously wounded, however.  Exploring Vessel Launched.  Kiel, April 2.���The ship built  for the German Antarctic expedition  was launched today. Professor von  Richtoren, on behalf of emperor  William, christened the vessel  Gauss in honor of the famous German mathematician and scientist of  that name.  Washington, April 2.--The war  department today received information from general McArthur that  Aguinaldo had taken the oath "of  allegiance to the United States  under the terms of amnesty offered  by general McArthur.' The dispatch conveying this information  contained much more than was  given to the public. The portion  . withheld related to the future disposition of Aguinaldo and made  suggestions as to what the late chief  of the insurgents might accomplish.  No official statement, could be obtained as to what finally would be  done with the prisoner, but it was  stated that he would be held for the  present, but would be granted all  possible immunity consistent with  existing conditions.  General McArthur has hopes that  a great deal may be accomplished  through Aguinaldo. During the  time he has been a prisoner he has  made quite a favorabls impression  on general McArthur. - It has been  suggested that under the terras of  the notice of amnesty, the prisoner  should be set at liberty at once, but  there is a provision in the amnesty^  proclamation which says those who  have violated the laws of war are  excepted from its terms. Whether  or not general McArthur has satisfied himself that Aguinaldo has not  violated tlje laws of war,cannot be  stated. Aguinaldo, having * been  the head of the insurrection, undoubtedly can.be held until further  investigation is,made or until .the,  circumstances which- surrounds the1  situation in the Philippines make it'  advisable to release him outright or  otherwise dispose of him.  These condicions and the general  situation and Aguinaldo's relation  to them were the subject of general  McArthur's dispatch and are being  considered by the authorities here  who will have final disposition of  the matter. The news of Aguinaldo's action was received with  satisfaction by the war department,  and the opinion was expressed that  good results would follow among  those who have been still holding  out against the United States.  The taking of the oath itself is  regarded as giving Aguinaldo a  status of loyalty to the United  States quite different from those  still in arms. General McArthur  evidently has considered it exped-  ient to have Aguinaldo take _this_  oath and apparently believes that  reliance can be   placed   upon the  age of officers to fill assignments in  this country, owing to the drain  that came from China and the Philippines, so the home coming of so  many vesscN will be welcome. The  Oregon and Newark, both of which  have been on service in the far east  a great while past, already are setting sail for the United' States to  be completely overhauled and re-  paired.  Lopez Ib Anxious.  Boston, Mass., April 2.���Sixto  Lopez was informed today that  Aguinaldo had taken the oath of  allegiance to the United States.  Senor Lopez asked for the particulars. Upon being informed'that  only the bare fact had been cabled  over, he said : "I think there must  be some conditions attached co the  announcement that Aguinaldo has  taken the oath. It is very important. You must giye me time to  think it over."   -  PROVINCE  AND   DOMINION  CROW'S NEST SOUTHERN PEOPLE  CALLED DOWN.  Must Guarantee Protection to  Columbia Smelters or Get  Charter���Other News.  British  No  Japan Gets Snubbed.  Yokohama,   April 3. ��� Leading  Japanese   newspapers   assert that  the Russian government has replied  to Japan's protest against the Manchurian   convention   to the effect  that Russia does not wish to enter  upon   a   discussion   with  a   third  power ��� relative to her negotiations  with China;   that   the   proposed  agreement is purely temporary and  not intended to_impair the sovereignty of China or to injure the interests of other powers;   that the  contents of the agreement immediately upon its conclusion  will be  communicated to the other powers,  who   will  undoubtedly find them  acceptable; and, finally, that if any  of the provisions are not acceptable  to Japan, Russia is prepared to discuss the matter in a friendly spirit.  Russia's reply to Japan's protest  against the Manchurian convention,  says the Yokohama correspondent  of the Daily Mail, is regarded' as  uns'atis factory and further vigorous  representations will follow.  Prince Konoye at Sumoro, ��� president of-the house of peers, in the  course of an inflammatory speech,  openly discussed the probable re-,  suits ofaiwar.. between. !Japan "and  Russia and said that' Japan could  count upon the friendly neutrality  of Great Britain and Germany. He  declared 'that the United States  would not interfere and that France  would only cause uneasiness by the  employment of her Annamese forces  and by a naval demonstration off  Formosa. This, he predicted, would  be the limit of French actions and  therefore Japan's vastly superior  army would be enabled without  great difficulty to drive Russia out  of Manchuria.  Victoria,   April 2.���[Special   to  The   Tribune.]���The   Crow's   Nest  Southern crowd ran   up against a  snag today.    It was rumored that  they absolutely refused to give tho  government any guarantee that the  smelters would be treated fairly;  and they even, it is said,   went so  far as to say that��they would  not  accept a charter with any   restrictions whatever; that they  wanted  a free hand to do as  they pleased.  Wheu the order of the day reached ���  the Crow's Nest Southern  bill  the  attorney general objected  to the  speaker leaving tho chair and the-  bill was not considered. This taken  ih connection with the action of the  minister of railways, Blair,  in the  railway    committee    at . Ottawa; ���  clearly shows that the Crow's Nest ,  people will be required    to   give ,  guarantees that smelters in British  Columbia must be protected.   This  may not be   patriotic,   but   it   i.i  business.  . The school bill has been  passed.  The section relating to finances was  struck out and that feature remains '-  as in the present act.        -  '  Every member of the house, except Mclnnes, attended the banquet  given.by premier Dunsmuir at the-;  Driard, tonight.

The army regulations make  no distinct provision that the taking  of the oath shall give complete  liberty to a prisoner.  The wa*>* department authorities  say that offences against the articles  of war refer to murders and like  depredations. Only recently five  Filipino officers were executed for  such offences. It was not known  here whether Aguinaldo was responsible in any case for such  offences, though from the fact that  general McArthur allowed him to  take the oath of allegiance it is  assumed that the commanding  general does not hold Aguinaldo to  be chargeable with the violation of  the articles of war. It is .'Believed  that general McArthur.will keep  the ex-leader under his eye and  avail himself of the good offices of  Aguinaldo in loyalizing the remainder of the insurgent forces. Should  the capture and submission of the  Filipino chieftain mark the beginning of the end of the war in the  Philippines, as expected, the effect  on the naval representation in  Asiatic waters would be a very considerable reduction of our naval  force in the far east.  There are at present about 57 of  our naval vessels on the Asiatic  station, a greater number than ever  has been mobilized there and including some of the finest battleships, cruisers and ironclads in the  American navy. A good many of  them will now be sent home. It is  probable that the European station,  with headquarters in the Mediterranean, will be revived and also  that the re-creation of the old South  Pacific station will follow.

A  very fair example  of the way in  which this open-door  labor policy  works was furnished in connection  with   the   building   of  the Great  Northern spur at Rossland a few  weeks ago.  For this work men were  imported from   the United States  utterly regardless of the Dominion's  Alien Labor Act, and the onus was  then upon  organized labor in the  province to prove that  the men  so  imported were citizens of the United States.   In some sixteen cases  tliis fact was established and the  men were deported, but in overy instance in which this fact could-not  be proven, the men were allowed to  remain.       The   only   effect   these  deportations will have will bo that  of   impressing  upon  railway contractors the necessity of importing  under contract men who are not  citizens of the United States.

British    Columbia  Southern   railway,   one  thousand  Italian laborers  are brought into  the district;   men  who when the  railway work is over will enter into  active competition for such employment as the mines  of the district  afford for unskilled labor?   If, as  the. promoters  claim, the British  Columbia Southern railway is to be  built without subsidy of any kind,  it is not likely that any restrictions  as to the employment of labor will  be imposed at Ottawa.     This will  force organized- labor to the Alien  Labor Act for its protection, and as  at present framed it keeps out the  most desirable class of labor and  admits the most dangerous.  The people of Victoria have  served their members in the legislature with notice that they are  expected to vote the V., V. & E.  railway subsidy or resign their  seats. '  There are some mine owners and  mine managers in Kootenay who  would like to have the mining. industry of the province placed upon  ,the level? of the salmon canning  business! If they.-had ' their way  the mineral wealth of the province  would furnish neither profitable  employment for its people, nor returns for government expenditures  incurred for its development.  YESTERDAY'S    NEWS   IN   BRIEF.  The Tribune has made arrangements for the publication of the  full news report of the Associated  Press, including the afternoon as  well as the morning service. This  will give The Tribune the best  telegraphic service in the province,  an advantage which will speedily  assert itself.  E. V. Bodwell is anxious that  the V,, V. & E. railway should give  the people of British Columbia the  advantages of competition with the  Canadian Pacific railway, but he is  very much opposed to the C. P. R.  giving the people of the province  the advantage of competition with  the V., V. & E. for that provincial  subsidy of one million dollars.  Those who imagined that American labor would be given employment  as the result of the displacement of  the Japanese from the Great North-  ery railway system have had their  dream rudely shattered. The Japanese are to go, but their places are  to be taken by Italians, and orders  have been placed with employment  agencies ih the big cities of the cen-  . tral states for the moving of 2000  Italians to the west. This is said  to be the largest order ever placed  for railway labor, and it is taken to  indicate considerable activity in  railway construction.  Should James J.  Hill  secure his  charterfor the Crow'sNest Southern  ' railway,    British    Columbia    will  doubtless experience the effects of  an open-door labor policy in "connection   with   the   open-door   for  railways.    This will mean the flooding of East Kootenay with cheap  ; labor, and unless  material amend-  . ment is made to the Alien, Labor.

London, April 2.���Under date of  Pretoria, April 1st, lord Kitchener  reports to the war office as follows:  Plummer has occupied Nylstroon  and French has captured three generals of the lower Pongola. Thirty-  one prisoners have been captured in  the Orange River Colony. There  were no casualties.    1N  Leader Shot.  Cape Coast Castle, Gold Coast  Colony, April 2.���The leader of the  men belonging to the West African  regiment who recently mutinied because they had not been returned  to Sierra Leone at the time they  understood they were to lie sent  home has been courtmartialed and  publicly shot. The rest, of the  mutineers have been shipped to the  island of Sherbo, 40 miles from  Sierra Leone.  Miners Locked Out.  Hazelton, Pennsylvania, April  2.���The six hundred men employed  at the Oneida colliery of 5 Coxe  Brothers & Co. have been locked,  out.

No move has been made for a  settlement.  Leased to British Syndicate.  New York, April 2.���According  to the Express, says the London  correspondent of the Tribune, 71,-  000 square miles of territory in the  Chinese provinces of Shan Se and  Ho Nan, rich in iron, coal and petroleum, have been leased tb a British syndicate. If there should be  any truth in the story the contented attitude of lord Lansdowne in  the face of Russian designs on Manchuria would surely, be accounted  for.  Balfour May Succeed Salisbury.  New York, April 2.���The retire-  mentof lord Salisbury from public  life is much nearer than is generally believed, says the London correspondent of the Tribune. There  will be a new prime minister before  .the session ends and the ministry  may be changed at one or two  points. One forecast may be repeated with confidence, as there is  high authority for it. This is the  speedy appointment of Mr. Balfour  as prime minister with an elevation  to the peerage.  Carnegie to Start Theaters,  NEW York, April 2.���According  to a World despatch from London  the Daily Express is informed that  Andrew Carnegie purposes to endow a theater in New York and  another in London for the elevation  of the stage, provided a working  plan can be devised which will prevent the management from falling  into the hands of extremists or faddists. Mr. Carnegie's wish is said  to be to establish an international  theater with a stage on either side  of the Atlantic that companies and  Hon. Qeo. A. Cox,  President.  Robt.

The idea is  said to havo been suggested by  Richard Mansfield's recent declaration that an endowed national  theater is necessary for the preservation of the drama. It i9 further  stated that Mr. Carnegie has been  consulting with actors, managers  and critics and may soon be expected to make an announcement..  Awarded Substantial Judgment.  Buffalo, April 2.���A verdict of  $13,500 was reported to justice  Kenewick this morning by the jury  in the suit of Mrs. Charlotte A.  Bridgewood against Prank H.  Brown, Lewis H. Cole, Helene  Stephens Cole, Louis F. Stensgard,  and Thomas W. Pelham. The jury  was out all night and did not agree  upon a verdict until 9 o'clock this  morning. In 'this action Mrs.  Bridgewood sued to' recover the  value-of $8000 worth of property in  Hamilton, Ontario, and interest on  the money. She alleged the defendants had defrauded her out of the  property by inducing her to trade  it for land in Johnson county,  Kentucky, the title to which was.net  good. Fraud-was alleged in. her  complaint and justice Kenewick  held it was for the jury to determine if there had been, fraud.  Destruction of Forts.  Pekin, April 1.���Regarding the  destruction of the forts the generals  are practically agreed that those at  Taku, Shanghai, Kuan and Tien  Toin must at least be rendered useless, while the north fort at the entrance, of the river..Taku must  be destroyed entirely on account of  the fact that ever since it was built  it has caused lower water on the  bar, having diverted the course of.  the stream.' ' The merchants have  frequently complained to the  consuls, but no government has  liked to ask China to destroy a fort  at the entrance to an important  river. This, however, can now be  done as a matter of military necessity and will give foreign merchants  intense satisfaction as the river thus  in a short time will be navigable as  far as Tien Tsin.  China's Trade.  Pekin, April 2.���Sir Robert Hart,  inspector general of Chinese customs, has sent to the legations'  commissioners comparisons for the  past five years. These show a. great  increase in American trade, particularly in flannels, sheetings and  jeans and a corresponding decrease  in British trade. They also show a  great falling off in the American  ikerose>ne"=tfadeTi=^RTi^iS==has a-  greater part of the business in oil  and th s merchants are Russian,  dealing especially iu cotton goods  and oil, while owing to the closed  door policy Manchuria will be lost  entirely to international trade.  - Rir sia WiU Have Free Hand.  New Vmrk. Anvil 2-rrThe China  question has again fallen into the  background, says the London correspondent of the Tribune, since  nearly all well informed men agree  that mither England iior Germany  win in erfere with Russian designs  in Manchuria and that' Japan can  be placated by concessions in Korea.  The indemnity is now under discussion between Germany and England, with the probability that the  compromise agreed upon between  them will be received by the powers  after protracted delay.  Canada at the Fan-American.  Buffalo, April 2.���E. B. Elder-  kin, special live stock commissioner  of the Dominion of Canada for the  Pan-American exposition, and A. P.  Westerville, secretary of the Dominion Cattle Breeders' Association,  held an extended conference with  superintendent Converse yesterday  with reference to the Canadian exhibit. Mr. Elderkin assured a News  reporter that Canada could be  counted upon to make a considerable showing at the exposition.

The mine owners of Rossland have  issued a manifesto, declaring that if  there be any trouble with the  miners the mines will be promptly-  closed down. There is trouble  anticipated. '  Pish stories have not yet begun  . to circulate. The speckled beauties  so far display no keen appetite for  the     artificial    fly.   The   weather  -must-improve-before���big���baskets=  can be spoken of.  Citizens are asking when the  shack nuisance is to be abated. Few  of the miserable, unsanitary hovels  have as yet been vacated, although  their removal was ordered by the  "city council a couple of weeks  ago.  A good program of games and  music has been arranged for the  social to be given by the Young  Men's Social Club at their rooms in  Emmanuel church this evening.  Refreshments will be served and ull  are cordially invited.  There is a Paul Kruger in Nelson  ���not the great Oom���but nevertheless a ^Dutchman. He cleared  some land-recently .oh the 40-acre  park site,'and is anxious to retain  it, while1 the^mfiS-?anch. people (so  Kruger says) are trying to dispossess hini'. His complaint is being  investigated by the mayor and city  engineer. , .. :-  Lieutenant-cblonel Mrs. Read,'  superintendent of the women's  social work of the Salvation Army,  will arrive in Nelson tomorrow from  Rossland, and will address a meeting in the barracks in the evening.  Mrs. Read is thoroughly conversant  with her subject and interests all in  the work of rescuing fallen women.  All should hear what the army proposes in connection with this matter.  THE   MILLINERY   OPENING  A Success in Nelson.  The millinery openings in Nelson  yesterday excelled anything of the  class ever before attempted in the  city. It is only a few brief years  ago since Nelson put on metropolitan airs, bub since that date she  has lived up to her ideals. Visitors  from the big centers of population  in tho east might smile at the  thought of an Easter millinery  opening in this new city in tho  mountains of tho wild and woolly  west, but those of them who had  the advantage of inspecting yesterday's displays will alter their  opinions. No more choice selection  of millinery goods could be desired  than that presented in Nelson.  There may not be the puzzling quantity on exhibition,  but as to the quality there  can be no second opinion. The  goods were selected in the best  markets and the buyers knew how  to cater to the tastes of a community who will have the best and the  latest no matter what the cost.  At Fred Irvine and Co.'s there was  a busy time yesterday. The store  was crowded from opening to close,  and while sales were brisk, there  were scores of ladies who simply  attended to see the big display of  art as outlined by dame fashion in  her latest and happiest mood. As  might be expected, some of the  newest creations in the way of  millinery were bought up, but  only on condition that they should  not be removed until others had  the opportunity of admiring them.  The French models were not more  admired than were those of the  American or Canadian modiste, but  so choice and varied was the display  that selection- was difficult. Tlie  flowers to be worn this season are  large���full bloom. Autumnal leaves  play ah agreeably conspicuous part  in the trimmings and berries are  also much in evidence. Feathers  are evidently not so popular as of  yore, and little else than the ostrich  tip is to be seen except \n broad  hits of the Gainsbbro style. ' There  is the usual variety of shapes, with  some new ideas added, while laces,  silks and other delicate textures are  also quite the thing. Those who  went in to Fred Irvine\s to see a  millinery opening had an extra  pleasure in store /or them. The  mantle department received its due  meed of attention' and proved an  agreeable surprise to everyone, as  did also the other counters laden  with the latest in silk waists,foreign  fabrics, dress goods, Parisian costumes, etc. The opening continues  today and tomorrow.  Ac Mrs. McLaughlin & Co.'s the  millinery display attracted all the  patrons of the establishment as  well as hosts of admiring spectators and new customers. -Mrs. McLaughlin secured most of her season's goods from New York and  San Francisco, but they include all  the newest things out. Blue and  old rose seem to be among the  leaders in the popular shades, but  black-arid gold take a good second  place. It-would be difficult to describe the many sonnets of bonnets  and hats displayed here. To appreciate the grandeur and variety  ^of display^one'must^see���themf^and"  this opportunity is offered today  and tomorrow, when the exhibition  proper closes and business begins in  earnest. There is an endless variety in straw and made-up millinery, flowers, laces, feathers and  everything calculated to add beauty  to headgear.  Mrs. Enfield, in opera house block,  had her millinery opening yesterday, and it will be continued until  Thursday afternoon;* There is to  be seen a fine selection of English,'  American, and Canadian straw  millinery in all approved shapes  and crimming.a, and carefully classified. Trimmings are iu great  variety, and not the least attractive  of the hats displayed were those of  original design or copies made by  Mrs. Enfield herself. Here also was  evidence that fashion decrees large  flnwfi s, autumn leaves, and happy  combinations of color. Some of the  shapes in tuscan and straw webbing  are very attractive.' Mrs. Enfield's  ready-to-wear hats, will be found  very acceptable. One must see the  assortment to appreciate it.  Commissioner Senkler's Libel Suit.'

Buried at Home.  Charles Hillyer, who accompanied  the remains of the late E. McNair  to New "Westminster for interment,  has returned to Nelson. At the  railway depot the Masons and  Knights of Pythias met the corpse,  and in solemn procession escorted  it to its last resting place. The  service at the grave was the impressive one of the Masonic order.  The estate of the deceased has not  yet been administered, but it is  thought he died worth about  $10,000.   The Cemetery.  While the medical men of Nelson  complain of business as being."dis-  gustingly quiet," in professional  parlance, the man who presides  over the business interests of the  cemetery declares that last week  things were more lively than at any  period during his experience. There  were six burials calling for his  kindly offices.  PEESONAL.  G. T. Ransom, Sandon, was registered at the Hume yesterday.
