 .,.i"  Mineral Production of British Columbia in 1900  $16,407,645  Mineral Production of Kooteqay \i\ 1900  $10,562,032  NINTH YEAR  NELSON, B. C, FRIDAY MORNING,  APRIL 5,  1901  PRICE FIVE CENTS  I  I-  Etv'  ENUMERATORS' HARD WORK  FIFTY NAMES EACH THE AVERAGE AT START.  Questions Which Cannot or Will Not  Be Answered���How the Chinamen  Obstructs Prowess.  The enumerators started out on  their work yesterday morning, and  on comparing notes at night found  that they had averaged fif ty names  apiece.    However, better results are  expected in future.     They will not  work today, but on Saturday they  will be at it again.    There are some  very amusing experiences.    Invariably when a Chinaman answered  the door, the officers were taken for  book   agents   and   informed   that  "missee no in."    On trying  to explain the situation to John  "he no  savee.".   In one' instance the man  with the census papers forced his  way in, but failed to see the master  or mistress of the house, who  were  doubtless informed that a tax collector or book agent was  making a  call.    In another instance a family  was     located     in     whose     case  the enumerator had to seek advice  as to how to define their nationality.   The father is a Canadian who  has taken out his  first papers   on  the other side; the mother is a Dane  by birth and of the childern two  were born in the United States and  one in   Canada.   As usual  on the  question of age there was some deli  cacy.   One lady of mature age  approached   on   the   subject,  appeared     very     reluctant  wer.  the   question.      "You  not   be    afraid,"  census man,  "for  was  and  ans-  need  suggested    the  I am sworn to  secrecy." He thought [he was help-  ing matters out,  but  he  was  not.  . ->The very suggestion that there was  any secrecy in the "matter c'adsed  the lady to denounce him as insolent and to call him everything but  a gentleman. She finally announced  that he might put hei* down  as       27. This        was       done,  but there was aslight suspicion on  the part- of the man making the  entry that there was at least one  misrepresentation'in that schedule.  On tlie point of religion there was  also some difficulty experienced.  Many protested against associating  themselves with any particular,  sect and yet objected to being put  down as atheists. A marked indifference on matters of religion was  conspicuous. It was also found  that many people are unable to give  the date of their birth or the exact  age of their children. In many  cases the woman of the house declined to give information in the  absence of her husband and when  =pressed=tO-do=so=professed-to-be=un-  able to answer the questions. Under  such circumstances the enumerators  will be obliged to call again. It  would facilitate matters greatly if  people would understand that the  information asked for must be  given to the best of their belief and  knowledge and that as the name  does not appear and the enumerators are sworn to secrecy there can  be no purpose served by failing to  answer the questions.  Scientific Hypnotic Tests.  E. Sutcliffe last night gave  another private exhibition of his  prowess as a hypnotist. As on the  previous occasion the tests were  given in the presence of some of  Nelson's leading citizens, including  two medical men. The seance was  held in the dentistry parlors of Dr.  Quinlan, who again last night  extracted a bad'tooth from one of  Mr. Sutcliffe's subjects, while the  latter was in a hypnotic condition.  The operation was painless. One  of the other scientific tests of last  i night was that of preventing, by  suggestion, the cireulation<of blood.  The subject was hypnotized, and at  the suggestion that the blood was  not coursing in his arm or hand Dr.  Symonds made an ineis-ion in the  flesh of the finger. Ib did not bleed,  but when the operator suggested  a flood of blood it came freely.  Some very amusing things were  done by the subjects, over whom  Mr. Sutcliffe evidently possessed  complete control.--His work is clean,  swift and effective.  The Washington Cabinet.  Washington, April 4.���The president aud secretary Hay were in  conference for almost an hour to  day. Secretary Root was present a  portion of the day. The subject of  the consultation was not disclosed,  although it was surmised that it  related to the Chinese situation.  Secretary Root pronounced the  stories that Aguinaldo had been invited tjlBfatMu or that he was com-  the secretaryOT^BHHHa the secretary of war hadMiepSted, Lord  Pauncefote, the British ambassador,  called at the White House. The  official explanation of the British  ambassador's visit was that he  called to present the acknowledgments of the British government  for the expressions of condolence on  the death of Queen Victoria.  Shot Wife and Self.  Adrian, Michigan, April 4.���  Darius C. Batchelor, a horse breaker,  today shot his wife through the  throat in their house and then retiring to an upstair's room shot  himself through the temple, dying  instantly. Mrs. Batchelor lived but  a few minutes. The couple had  quarreled a great deal the past few  days. . .     *  Rumored Attack on Czar.  London, April 4.���A special dispatch from Vienna say9 a report is  published there that an officer of  the Guards entered the czar's study  yesterday and fired-at him with a  revolver.

LAUNCHING OF THE CELTIC  CIVIL   LIST   PROPOSITION  INCREASE    RECOMMENDED  THE   COMMITTEE.  BY  Largest Vessel Ever Built.  Belfast, April 4.���The new  White Star line steamer Celtic, the  largest vessel ever built, was successfully launched here this morning in the presence of a large and  representative gathering. The  christening was performed by the  marchioness of Dufferin. . Among  the prominent people . who participated-in. the ceremony .were the  countess Cadogau, wife of the lord  lieutenant of Ireland; the marquis  and marchioness of Dufferin; the  marquis and marchioness of Londonderry, and the earl and countess  of Shaftesbury. The arrangements  for the launching were similar to  those of the Oceanic and the new  vessel glided from the ways and  was pulled up within her own  length by dropping three pairs of  anchors. The launching occurred  amidst the enthusiastic cheers of  the people and the blowing of horns  and fog horns. The Celtic has nine  decks and a capacity for 2859 passengers. She will carry a crew of  335 men. Her tonnage is 3600  greater than that of the Oceanic  and nearly double that of the Kaiser  Wilhelm Der Gosse and her displacement is 12,000 greater than  that=of-the=latter-vessel,=-while=her-  displacement and tonnage are 10,350  over that of the Great Eastern.

Vancouver, April 4,���[Special to  The Tribune.]���At a large mass  meeting tonight addressed by Smith  Curtis, E. V.

Plague Cases.  . Capetown, April 4.���Two deaths  from bubouic plague and one suspected case were officially reported  today.  Labouchere,  the   Only Signer of the  Minority Report, Thinks Present  List Sufficiently High.  London, April 4.���The report of the  committee appointed to consider  changes in the civil list recommended that the new civil list be fixed  at about ��470,000 as follows : Privy  purse ��11,000; salary of household  and retired allowances, ��125,000;  expenses of household, ����193,000;  works, ��10,000; royal bounty, alms  and special service, ��13,000; and  sundries, ��8,000. The report recommends an annuity of ��20,000 to the  duke of Cornwall and York; ��10,-  000 to the duchess of Cornwall and  York and ��00,000 to each of the  king's daughters. The queen's annuity in the event of her surviving  the king is increased to ��70,000,  and an annuity of ��30,000 is provided for the duchess of Cornwall and  York in the event of her surviving  the duke. The proposals for the  civil lists has a net increase of ��67,-  000.  H. Labouchere, advanced Liberal,  the sole signatory of the minority  report, thinks that no increase is  necessary. In a piquant paragraph  he says: "The committee did not  deem it within the scope of their  inquiry to consider whether a continuance of the pomp of pride and  ceremony of the court is desirable.  Suggestions have been received that  the cost of living has gone up  among the wealthier 'classes since  her late majesty ascended the  throne. This idea,seems to be due  to the present ostentatious expenditure of some of those who have  suddenly- acquired. large - fortunes.  But your committee does not believe  the sovereign would desire to enter  into monetary competition with  such persons, or encourage by his  example such vain-glorious prodigality on the part of his subjects."

TRIAL OF RICE MURDERERS  TESTIMONY OF THE VALET MUST  BE CORROBORATED.  Sensational Incidents at the Examination Yesterday���Patrick Scores  ��a Point.  New York, April 4.���There were  at least two incidents during today's cross-examination of Charles  F. Jones, the valet-secretary of the  late millionaire William Marsh  Rice, which rose above the.-- ordinary. Possibly the one which  stood , out from the proceedings  most prominently _ was a remark  made by justice Jerome, who presides at the hearing, and which  probably shows why lawyer Patrick, accused with Jones of the  murder of the Texan, has all along  taken the accusations of Jones  against himself with a demeanor almost bordering on contempt.' Patrick is a good lawyer and he possibly had in his mind from the .beginning what justice Jerome made  public.  , Attorney Moore for the defence  had asked that when the hearing  closed for the day it be not resumed  until Tuesday. Justice Jerome  seemed willing and then added: "It  is necessary that Jones' testimony  as to the murder should be corroborated. He being himself a  confessed accomplice his testimony  alone is not enough upon which to  hold Patrick."  Attorney Moore tersely added to  this: "We understand that, and  we suppose the district attorney  does too." *     .  , Tonight those who are watching  the case closely are wondering what  corroborative testimony the state  will introduce to sustain the state-.  ments of Jones.  "The other incident?brought out  in the clearest light the indomitable  nerve of lawyer Patrick. In the  face of the reiterated story of Jones,  that Patrick had instigated the  forgeries and the actual murder,  the latter took his place in the  court proceedings with- as much  nonchalance as he would if he had  been suddenly called on to act as  interpreter in, a police court  "clothesline" ease. At one time it  became necessary that a statement  made by Jones be read and it was  given into the hands of one of the  counsels for the defense for that  purpose. This was a statement in  which the valet claimed Patrick  killed Rice and which he has since  denied. The reader hesitated and  stumbled over the written words.  Suddenly Patrick spoke up, exclaiming: "Here 11 guess I can make it;  I'll read this!"   This was done, and  Pr  ih"a-loud"Tclear~voic<r  got a towel  rated  he read:  and sponge and satu-  the sponge with a colorless  liquid he had in a bottle. Then he  went into the room where R. lay in  bed. I was not in the room, but  peeped in. P. was standing over R.  with the cone shaped towel in his  hand and ho pressed it down over  R.'s face."  Patrick was still reading, with no  show of emotion, when justice  Jerome ordered a recess for  luncheon. The P. and R. in the  statement stand for Patrick, and  Rice. At another point in the proceedings justice Jerome gave his  estimate of Jones with characteristic terseness. Attorney Moore had  been racking the o witness with  questions, all tending to bring out  the valet's lying propensities. He  showed that Jones had lied to and  deceived his own father when the  latter called on him in the hospital  after he had attempted suicide;  that he had told untruths to  attorney Osborne and that he had  lied to his own counsel. Here  justice Jerome struck in with the  remark : " This witness is a weak,  wicked and unfortunate man. He  is a self-confessed murderer, and  deserves contempt, but I won't  allow you to insult him."  There was very little new matter  brought out at today's hearing.  The whole of the cross-examination  of Mr. Moore, who is Patrick's personal counsel, was confined to showing up Jones as a man who could  not be believed. Whon court  adjourned, it was until next Tuesday.    Standing of Greece.  BERLIN, April 4.���A  dispatqh  to  the Frankfurter Zeitung from Con  stantinople, dated April 3, says that  the award of the ambassadors, who  have been arbitrating the points of  difference withheld from the  treaty of 189S between Turkey  and Greece was signed yesterday.  The ambassadors took as a basis for  their decisions on the points of  difference^ with slight amendations,  the statement of 200 pages drafted  by the German ambassador. These  decisions have not yet been made  public, but are substantially to the  effect that the ambassadors have  created for Greece an intermediary  regime, standing between that of  those states whose citizens in  Turkey enjoy the fullest advantages and those states whose citizens have no special privileges.  Certain rights enjoyed by Greece  before the war, as well as Greece's  standing as the most favored nation,  are abolished. Greece retains jurisdiction over her subjects in Turkey.

New York, April 4.���A special to  the Herald from Washington says:  Official denials greeted the published  report that J. Pierpont Morgan,  having discovered a gold mine on  the Panama canal route, would head  a syndicate to build the canal and  had secured president McKinley's  cooperation and the aid of Colombia.  Denials came from the White House,  'the state department, the Colotnbia'n  legation and the French embassy.  Most of those who denied the report  declared it was started to make  difficult the negotiation of canal  treaties by the United States. The  big news development in the canal  situation is that minister Silvella,  who is also Colombian minister of  foreign affairs, in his memorandum  to secretary Hay has formally  agreed on behalf of its government  to grant the United States a long  lease of the territory through  which the canal passes.     He states  %_\  emphatically, however  government will not  ereignty.  The lease is to  these   terms:.

Sir- Francis  Cook died February 17.    Friends of  lady Cook say  that   false' stories <  have been circulated   by a person *  not related to sir Francis, but who -  was disappointed at not^ being remembered in the will.    Lady  Cook  desires that the exact cause of her ,  husband's death, which was senile  decay (he was 84 years  old at the  time of his death), shall  be especi-'  ally certified to, so  that hereafter  in the event of her death  nothing.  can be alleged against her.   The re-,  lations between lady Cook and' her -  late   husband's   family   are   quite  cordial.  Lady Cook, who is living in Ken-'  sington, London, made the follow-j  ing statement to a representative-  of the   Associated   Press   tonight:  "Since the death of my husband, .  there has come to my knowledge a.'  very thoroughly laid plan, concoct-C  ed before his1 death,  to blackmail'  his reputation.

Should I die now these lit s  might go on forever.    I have therefore resolved  to refute them now.

This is on the basis qf a  90 year lease. The United States  guarantees that this share shall in  no case be less than $250,000 annually. In case of the issuance of  stock Colombia is to receive a share  based upon that given it by the  Panama Canal Company, amounting to one-thirteenth of the number of shares issued. Colombia is  to receive annually $250,000 for the  use of the railroad. Colombian  mails, troops and effects belonging  to the republic and immigrants to  the country up to the number of  2000 must receive railway transportation free of charge.  Colombian vessels are to be  allowed . freely to use the canal.  Finally Colombia binds herself to  grant permission to the French  canal company to negotiate with  the United States for sale of its  concession. The concession absolutely forbids the company "to cede  or mortgage its rights under any  consideration whatever to another  nation or foreign government under  penalty of forfeiture." Mr. Ford,  the engineer-secretary of the Colombian legation made a statement regarding the Panama  canal, laying particular stress  upon the fact that the Panama canal is only affected by the  Clayton-Bulwer treaty in so far as  its neutrality is concerned, the  United States being thus free to  complete it without violating the  terms of the treaty.

The mining companies of the  Cceur d'Alenes have decided to decrease the lead output of their district in order to maintain prices.  To this end it is said a lower grade  of ore will be milled and considerable dead-work undertaken.  The people of British Columbia  should not be impatient over the  provincial debt as it takes provinces  a long time to learn not to spend  more than their revenue. Quebec  is a much older province than  British Columbia, but Quebec is  only novv beginning to live within  its means. During the past three  years no new taxation was imposed,  but Quebec's public debt was decreased $225,131, the surplus for the  year just closed being $30,612.  The Miner of Nelson is not happy  unless it is slandering the people of  Nelson. Yesterday it published a  column of rot concerning the disgraceful neglect shown by the city  officials and of the' provincial government officials toward the members of a family on the waterfront,  whose house had been quarantined  on account of scarlet fever.   The  Miner made it appear that the city  authorities  had  turned a deaf ear  to   the   appeal  of  this  family for  provisions,  and   that'a similar request to the provincial  authorities  was treated in the same way.   This  slander of the Miner, like its other  slanders, is utterly devoid of truth.  W'len  the   cast-,   was   reported to  Mayor Fletcher he forthwith issued  an order on the local charity organization for  provisions,  which were  immediately delivered to the quarantined family.    The quarantined  premises  being   outside   the   city  Mayor Fletcher  then directed the  attention    of*   gold   commissioner  Turner to the case as one requiring  government attention.     The first  relief was granted  at 11  o'clock on  the day upon which   the  request  was made, and on the following day  gold commissioner Turner gave the  quarantine    officer    authority   to  supply such further relief from tiirie  to time as the circumstances of the  case require,  upon the provincial  government's account.    At no time  after the case was first reported did  the family in question suffer for tho  want   of   anything.     Would   the  reader of the Miner's sensational  yarn arrive at any such conclusion?  After many years of temperance  campaigning Hon. G. E. Foster has  come around 'to the theory of  government control of the liquor  traffic. 'In addressing a big temperance gathering in Toronto on  Sunday he took the ground that  the monetary interest in the traffic  was too great to hope for any prohibitive legislation from any  government; but if this monetary  interest could be dislodged through  vesting the control of the traffic in  the government, the road to prohibition would be easy.  A new bachelor tax has been introduced in the Illinois senate. It  provides that when any bachelor  who has reached forty years of age  applies for a marriage license, he  shall pay $100 in addition to the  ordinary fee. The money raised by  this tax will be used for the maintenance of a spinsters home which  is to be under the jurisdiction of  "the state.   '  Made a Good Fight.  New Denver Ledge.  The Nelson Miner is poking fun  at John Houston for the course he  took in relation to the Crow's Nest  railroad charter business. But  John Houston made a good fight,  and, although he was in the wrong,  his course was more commendable  than the half-hearted policy of the  Miner: There is one thing that can  be said of John. When he takes  sides on any question you don't  have to guess where he stands.  To Improve Canals.  Albany, New York,, April 4.���A  bill introduced today in the legislature in regard to the improvement  of the Erie, Oswego and Champlain.  ncanals'provides^that^a���proposition^  shall be submitted to the people of  the state at the next general election in 1901 for the issuing of bonds  to an amount not exceeding  $26,000,000. A tax of .33 of a mill on  the dollar is to be assessed for the  purpose of paying the annual interest and creating a sinking fund  for the redemption of the bonds.  The bonds shall be sold to the  highest bidder in lots not to exceed  $9,000,000.  Ellington Exonerated.  Washington, April 4.���General  superintendent Kimball of the  United States Life Saving Service  has received the report of the commission to investigate the failure of  Mark Ellington, a surfman of the  Fort Point Life Saving Station, to  report the distress signals from the  City of Rio de Janeiro, which  foundered off San Francisco bay  February 22nd, .1901. Ellington  was suspended from duty and an  investigation was ordered. The  report just received by Mr. Kimball  completely exonerates surfman  Ellington and orders have been  telegraphed restoring him to duty.  Racing in England.

Processions Prohibited.  Madrid, April 4.���All the processions which had been prepared  for holy week at Granada have  been prohibited and such processions  will probably be forbidden at  Madrid, Barcelona and elsewhere.  FORTIFICATIONS OF CHINA  How to Dispose of Them.  Washington, April 4.���General  Chaffee has cabled the war department from Pekin that the military  commanders representing the foreign powet'3 there are now considering the question of disposing of  the Chinese forts and establishing  fortified posts with proper intervals along the route from Pekin to  the sea. General Chaffee seeks instructions for his guidance in" the  conference.  . A rather difficult question is involved    in   this    application     hy  general Chaffee.    As to  the treatment of Chinese fortifications  no  particular   difficulty    is    involved  when   the   state   department   has  clearly set out its view that these  should   be destroyed, but   simply  dismantled.    But as  to the establishment   of   fortified   points    the  state   department is unwilling to  commit the United States to  what  may be a permanent occupancy by  a military force of Chinese territory.  Meanwhile  the  war department is  pushing  its  preparations   for   the  complete evacuation of China  by  the American forces, save only the  legation   guards,   and   it    is   now  stated that everything  will  be in  readiness to embark  general  Chaffee's army at Taku for Manila on  May 30.  Later in the day, after the subject had been well considered, the  instructions were cabled to general  Chaffee. The text of these is withheld, but it is stated that they are  drawn on the lines of the instructions sent to Mr. Conger at the time  he accepted the joint agreement  under which the negotiations of the  ministers at Pekin were to be conducted. It so happened that the  reservations which Mr. Conger was  to make in that case was precisely  the subjects which are now before  the military commanders at Pekin,  namely, the destruction of the  .fortifications and the provision for  an armed international post along  the route from, Pekin to the sea.  General-4 Chaffee, as , already indicated, favors the disarmament of  the forts instead of their, destruction, but cannot participate iu the  establishment of armed posts. He  will, however, remain in the conference exerting his best efforts to  ameliorate the conditions along the  lines indicated.  fl  'TRADE  MARK  to  to  Kruger Pessimistic.  New. York, April 4.���According  to the Tribune's London correspondent the news comes from  Brussels that Mr. Kruger thinks  that the occupation of Zoutshans-  berg will, finally break down the  Boer defense. Zoutshansberg is the  Boer seat of government and contains supplies of stores and ammunition and it is understood to be in  imminent danger as a result of lord  Kitchener's northern campaign.  But prisoners who have recently  arrived at Pretoria are, however,  said to have expressed the opinion  that the war will last for three  years longer.  Rousseau Operated Upon.  Paris, April 4.���M.

Paris, April 4.���An official of the  foreign office informed a representative of the Associated  Press that  the report that a sensation was being created by the departure of the  Russian warships   from  Toulon  is  quite  artificial.    It was  never  intended    that   the   whole   Bussian  squadron should remain there during  the  franco-Italian  festivities,  and as it was  recognized  that the  presence   of a third party would  tend to check the expansion of feeling, while at the same time it might  invest the events at Toulon in the  minds of others with an importance  they   do    not   possess,   the    czar  wishes   that   the   Russian    navy  should  greet president Loubet at.  Toulon and it will be represented  by at least two warships which will  stay there during the festivities, in  which their officers will participate.  A Russian personage in the  city  who was interviewed on the subject  spoke in the same  strain, explaining that had the  Russian officers  and   warships   been   in   too great  numbers it might have diverted to  themselves   a part of the demonstrative   friendliness   which     the  Italians came to seek   in France.  He said that there had been lack of  =diseretion-on=the=part=ofithe=Rus;;=  sian consul at Toulon and  declared  that   the   Russian   squadron   had  never intended to take part in the  fetes.     He admits that   the   departure of the Rus3sian  warships  was hastened in order to cut short  the reports in certain Paris papers,  which had  been attributing undue  significance to the arrival of the  Russian squadron  at the present  juncture.  Berlin, April 1.���The recall of  the Russian fleet from Toulon is  considered here to denote Russia's  desire to not participate in the festivities in which, though she is the  ally of France, she would have a  less share of attention than Italy.  How to Raise the Indemnity,  Pekin, April 4.���The ministers  are considering proposals,submitted  by financial experts for the raising  pf ,Jl sufficient sum for the payment  of the Chinese indemnity. It is  probable that some arrangements arrived at on the basis of  the scheme of sir Robert Hart,  director of the imperial maritime  customs, which provides for the  handing of the salt and likin taxes  over to the maritime customs administration and the levying of an  annual house tax equal to one half  a month's rent, which, it is calculated, will provide twenty million  taels yearly, sufficient to pay five  per cent interest on two hundred  and fifty million taels and clear the  whole of the principal in less than  forty years. Two hundred and  fifty million taels is equivalent,  roughly estimated, to ��30,000,000,  but, the total amount of the indemnity is likely to be much more.  >Sorae   of   the powers are. greatly  Robt.

It is thought that the  increased cost of raising the money  required in that way is likely to  hamper tho commercial development of China and it .is therefore  believed to be desirable to have the  money raised internally in China.

The letters were of much  the same tenor as those received  heretofore, in which a person sigur  ing himself "Kidnaper" . threatened  to burn out the boy's eyes unless a  ransom of $200 .was forthcoming.  .The McCormick family declined to  make public the contents of the  letters and turned them over to the  police. .The police hold to the belief that tlie boy was not kidnaped  and that the letters containing  threats to burn him are fabrications  of an April fool joker. The offer of  $1000 reward by Oscar Willgrout.a  neighbor, is made on the condition  ihat the boy was kidnaped. Mrs.  Willgrout denied emphatically that  the reward was offered. because her  husband believed that their son  was the intended victim of the kidnaper as has. been reported. The.  two boys do not in any way resemble each other.  Capital  Rest  $2,500,000  $1,725,000  H. S. HOWLAND President.  D. R. WILKIE Genoral Manager.  E. HAY Inspector.

New York, April 4.���Dr. Joseph  S. Maria Bergia, ex-consul and acting minister to the United States  from Equador, who has been here  for some time, has started for home.  Before leaving he said: "I have been  in this country making arrangements for the shipment of. machinery for the better development of  our gold fields; In a few months  we shall have more than 300 dredges  there working by electricity. Orders have also been placed: with the  American Bridge Company for  more than $2,000,000 worth of material to be used in the completion  of the Guayaquil and Wito railroad, a very necessary adjunct to  the successful working of the mines.  We consider our gold fields, when  fully operated, will prove the richest in the world."  Good News for the Oastellane's.  New York, April 4.���The appellate division of the Supreme  Court handed down a decision today dissolving the injunction in the  case of Anton J. Dittmar * against  GeorgetTf Gould etalrftrustees under  the will of Jay Gould. The case  was before the court of appeal from  an order of Justice Beach continuing an injunction ordered by Justice  Fitzgerald, which limited the  amount to be paid to the countess  De Castellane to $200,000 a year.  Pending the trial of the action  under the decision of the appellate  division the trustees may pay the  countess her entire income.  Continuance Asked For.  New York, April 4.���At the Pat-,  rick hearing today Mr. Moore, one  of Patrick's attorneys, said that he  would like to have the hearing ad?  journed for tonight until next Tuesday. Justice Jerome said that if  this were agreed to he thought there  should be some understanding that  the hearing be finished by the following Saturday "It is necessary"  justice Jerome said, "that Jones'  testimony as to this murder should  be corroborated.. He being a self  confessed accomplice, his testimony  alone is not enough to hold  Patrick."  Humors Are Groundless.  New York, April 4.���The latest  reports about king Edward's health  are reassuring, says the London  correspondent of the Tribune. His  throat has been examined by sir  Felix Semon and the recent disturbing rumors have been pronounced  to be groundless. Sir Felix is the  German throat specialist who has  been appointed physician to the  king and has been naturalized as a  British subject. The king's general  health is good. He has not suffered  from the pressure of public business.  Recent rumors about a mysterious  Botha's Letter to Kitchener.  London, April 4.���The letter of  general Botha, the. Boer commander-in-chief, to lord Kitchener, commanding the British forces in South  Africa, preliminary to the recent  peace meeting, casually referred to  in general Kitchener's report of the  negotiations and from which the opponents of colonial secretary Chamberlain hope to obtain some clew of  the reason of the failure of the conference, was published as a parliamentary paper this morning. ��� The  letter is dated at the commandant-  general's camp, February 13, and  commences with a. reference to  "the verbal message from your excellency." Continuing the letter  says: "I have the honor to inform  your excellency that no one desires  more than I to bring this bloody  strife to an end. I would also very  much like to meet your excellency  for the purpose of mutual discussion to see if it is not. possible to  discover terms under.which this can  be done." The remainder of the  letter of general Botha is of no importance. It merely suggests a  place of meeting and arrangements  for the guarantee of safe conduct.  Affronts to Lord Carnngton.  London, April 4.���Dispatches received here from Paris reiterate  the stories of affronts to lord Car-  rington and his suite while returning from Lisbor), after formally  announcing king Edward's accession  to king Charles of Portugal. It  seems that the train on which the  mission traveled conveyed a number of nurses returning from the  Boer army. The result, says a dispatch to the Exchange Telegraph  Company -from Paris, was that at  every station there were violent  anti-British scenes. Lord Carring-  ton and his suite were openly insulted, when the nurses were  greeted with loud cheers. The  situation became so intolerable that  the British mission finally changed  trains.

The field of operation  includes the whole of the Kootenays, and Easter Monday has been  fixed for the annual gathering,  being the most convenient season  for teachers to get off. The Easter  holidays wiil be on, and as there  will be no work for- them from  Friday to Wednesday next there  will be ample opportunity of meeting in session and discussing subjects of interest to  the  profession.  The various - transport companies  give special rates to members of  the institute, and as at thin season  of the year good weather may  reasonably be expected a large  attendance is assured; It was the  original intention to hold the convention at the public school, but it  has been deemed advisable to alter  the program in this particular and  to meet in Fraternity Hall.  The proceedings open at 10 o'clock  on Monday morning, when the  president will address the assemblage. After the address new meua ���  bers will be enrolled, and the election of officers takes place. Rev. P.  Wright, D.D., will read'a paper on  '���The Ethical Element of Education." A second session will open  at 2 p m., which will be started with  a solo by G. L. Lennox, to be followed by a paper by J. S. Brandon,  ^B.A.^on^Methods^in^Geogjiaphy."  Miss Kate Scanlan contributes a  paper on "School Decorations," and  J. D. McLean one on "History."  There will also be a piano solo by  Miss Rouse and a vocal solo by Mrs.  J. E. Annable.  On Tuesday morning business  begins at 9 o'clock with a reading  by J. B. Clements. Miss Escotte  Wickham, B.A., will discuss ''Spelling for Intermediate Classes," a  subject which is' likely to be productive of much instructive discussion. Mtas Edwards is down on the  program for a solo. Resolutions  .will be in order up to the time of  adjournment for . lunch. The  teachers will re-assemble, at  2 o'clock. This session will  open with a piano solo by Mrs.  J. H. Wallace. There are three papers expected, the first by R J.  Clark, M..-A. on VOur Course in English," tfi'esecond by Miss Thom on  "Methods in Arithmetic" and the  third by M. L. Tompkins, his subject being '"Obstacles to Education  in the Kootenays." Peter McTav-  ish will give a recitation and Miss  Jessie Lillie a vocal solo. In the  evening at eight o'clock there will  be an entertainment in honor of  visiting teachers in Fraternity hall.  :: The meeting is of interest not  alone to the teachers themselves  but to the general  public,  as  any-  Mining Eecords.  The following mining transactions were recorded yesterday:  Certificates of work to O. A. Lowell  on the Cornish, Bee, Forest City,  Squadron, Southern Bell and Hillside. There-was but one new  location, the Minto, on Forty-nine  creek, by W.-'M. John,son.  The New Public Buildings.  Work has not yet begun on the  new postofficecustom house building, although considerable time has  elapsed since the contract was let.  A week or so ago contractor La  Pointe, of this city, was asked'to  figure on the excavation work. : He  duly forwarded his estimate, but  has heard nothing more on the subject. Architect Macdonald was  yesterday informed by a friend  from Vancouver that the building  contractors were in that city, and  might be expected in Nelson in the  course of a fewrdays. No selection  has been made of stone for foundation work, but it is expected that  it will be taken from Roberts'  quarry at Five-mile Point or from  the granite deposit at the rear of  the general hospital. As to the  marble to be used, there is some  competition between the owners of  the Kaslo and Sandon quarries,  from either - of which suitable  material can he. had. The. local  architect, however, rather favors  the Salmo product, as he-says it  runs 01 per cent lime as against 51k  for the Kaslo.  Births, Marriages and Deaths.  H. Wright, registrar of births,  marriages and deaths has forwarded his report for the quarter ending  March 31 to the registrar-general.  It appears that during the three  months there were 38 births, -57  deaths and 30 marriages registered.  As far as the deaths and marriages  are concerned, there is no reason to  doubt the accurracy of the figures,  but there is more than suspicion  that the birth rate does not show  anything like the total that would  appear were every new arrival  duly recorded. It is believed that  30 per cent of the births are not  reported at the registrar's office.  The parents of a child failing to  conply with the terms of the law in  this particular, are liable, upon  conviction to a fine of not less than  $25, andnot exceeding,$100.^_ItJs  required by law that the nurse in  attendance shall report the birth of  a child within ten days after the  event. On the strength of this report the parents are served with a  notice calling upon them to register  the birth within sixty days, and  failing to do so they are liable to  the fine above named. Happy  fathers will take notice. However,  as the law stands the onus of  prosecuting defaulters is placed  upon the registrar. It should not  be necessary to put an obliging  official in the position of prosecutor.  To loan on improved property.   Stra:ght mortgage at 8 per cent.  No monthly loan or no fines.
