C, WEDNESDAY, MORNING,  APRIL 10,  1901  PRICE FIVE CENTS  THE TEACHERS'CONVENTION  CLOSED IN NELSON YESTERDAY  AFTERNOON.  ;<  Obstacles to Education in the Kootenays Discussed and Politics  and Union Advocated.  The Kootenay Teachers' Institute  concluded its annual session yester-  [[ day, and the visiting teachers will  today leave for their respective  homes. The business transacted  was of importance to the profession  and also to all interested in education. Among the papers read yesterday was one on "The Obstacles of  Education in the Kootenays," and  from the writer's point of view  these are numerous. While he did  not mention any particular places  in which the grievances of  which he" complains exists, there  can be no doubt that in some of  the rural districts there are grounds  for complaint.  The program as published in  yesterday's Tribune was gou^  through, and a resolution passed  expressing the opinion of tlie institute that-the children in the  primary classes should be let out at  11:30 as under the old regulations,  instead of at 12 o'clock, according  to the recent change.  " A division or rearrangement of  the "summer holidays was also  recommended whereby school would  not ^reassemble until the 1st of  September. It is found that the  attendance is small when school  opens the first week in August as  . at present. It was further resolved  that it would be in the iuterests of  education-to have the mid-winter  exercises for . promotion . held iu  January or February, so as to more  evenly divide the term.  ���" A resolution was~submitted: pro-,  ���fc^rrposiugjto notify "the p?bvirici?il institute that iu, the opinion . of the  convention it was desirable that a  teachers'union should be established  for the better protection of the interests of the profession.  The, motion was debated at  length, but was lost on being put to  a vote.  A paper by M. L. Tompkins  elicited a good deal of lively.discus-  sion. The subject was ������Obstacles  to  Education in the   Kootenays."  , The writer did not attempt to discuss the qualities whicli a teacher  ought to possess, but rather the  characteristics which are really demanded by, those with whom they  have to deal; if.they, are to secure  employment. ,. There exists, the  writer'argued "a regrettable popular misconception as to the reason  why the education department  makes a monthly distribution of  public~funds~amdng~the_School-dis^~  tricts of the province. Too often  it seems never to enter into the  minds .-'-of-': the trustees- that the  money;is to be spent in the most  economic manner possible for the  inaintenance of efficient public  schools.   A look into the financial'  '.*-.records' of the school districts of  ���   theprovince will reveal such entries  as the following:  Xo for repairs to stove .$12 00  ,...,'(He bl .okod it once.)   -  To ��� sweeping aud cureiaking for cur-  -    rent month................ r :'......$ 1.50  -'      (Uo.wa�� thosoorotarv'ii Hon and swept once.)  ���ypThere "is, in many cases of this  kind, a deliberate neglect to supply  some' ,well:knpwn   requisite,"   and  .. while ���.bne school board never pays  ��� anything for sweeping or cleaning,  another retains rickety desks, when-  modern' desks   could   and   should  /have been obtained with the money-  granted by the department. The  remedy-for this was to-give-the  public an opportunity to tender for  ^ the wood arid caretaking and elect  auditors to investigate the accounts.  - While the teacher was not called  upon to divide his check,r there were  other methods by which his salary  was filched from him.-He was  told to board at such a place (at  rates, exorbitantly ��� high) or., asked  how muclr he would give toward  the church���both conditions b'eingi  made conditional on appointment.;  A certain town was cited in whichf  are two strong secret societies. To:  teach the public school theteacher  should be a member of the society  which happened to.have the majority of the school board. A man  with a decidedly objectionable reputation   and  no   teaching  ability  , often receives steady employment  because his relatives agree to buy  their supplies in the town where he  keeps school. Invariably the only  question asked by the school trustee  was, "How is the average keeping  up?" This average suffered if, for  some trivial reason, pupils were  kept from school, or even if certain  of them did not appear at the head  of their particular class.  Another difficulty dealt with in  the paper was that boys left school  before, they could graduate, .and  girls also. To encourage study the  writer advocated the founding of  mechanics' institutes, public libraries, or even the use of a traveling library- such as provided by the  ^provincial government, and the  reading of wholesome literature.  Discussing the question of remuneration, the writer held that  the teachers of the Kootenays are  . underpaid. - "A teacher ought not  to be compelled to accept a lower  reward for his services than does  the unlearned miner or teamster;  to receive voluntary contributions  of vegetables, etc., from charitably  disposed persons ; to raise money  by subscription .for school periodicals, or to live in a tent because he  has not the money to pay house  rent. All these the writer of this  has had to do." One of the reasons  assigned why teachers had to submit to such indignities was, "that  there is no effective union among  the members of our profession to  protect our interests, and - the  majority of us have no .vote."  Mr. Tompkins urged the teachers  to go in for politics, so as to secure  th"ir rights and make their presence  felt, and added: "Let us pass a  resolution .expressing" our hearty  sympathy for the trade union  movement; send greetings to the  various labor organizations, and  urge our members to spread trade  union literature. In ono year we  shall have won the respect of the  other professions and our employers  will have decided that perhaps we  have a grievance."  Iu the discussion which ensued  several, members gave ��heir experience, in other provinces, on the  boarding regulations, imposed upon  them, but in. British Columbia they  didnot s��^ tq^hink,tha,t this rule,  pre vai le^T-^ft^vaV'also^ sugges te'd"  that if such a state .of. affairs existed  the department of education should  be notified.  The chairman urged that teachers  should be more' independent, and  not submit to sucli: indignities as  those alluded to in the paper.  Then followed some talk as to the  necessity of union, and it was pro-  po-ed that the resolution on this  subject tabled during the morning  'session, should be rescinded and  the matter reconsidered.  A vote was taken and the motion  was declared lost.  Votes of thanks to the chairman,  the secretary, the local staff of  teachers and all who contributed  to the success of the meeting  brought the convention to a close.  The teachers were entertained  last night in Fraternity hall, where  there was a large attendance of the  general���public.���Principal-Soady,-  the newly-elected president of the  institute, Occupied the chair, and  short addresses werei delivered by  Reys. Munroe, Wright and ,'Whitei  and vocal solos by Mrs. Thurinan,  Miss Sutcliffe, Mr. Chadburn and R;  M. Macdonald. There were also a  couple of piano solos and some  se|ections by Mil ward's orchestra.  Tlierfloor was then cleared and the  teacher's and .their friends tripped,  the light fantastic for [ an hour or  two. '   .- '���'��� ::.���.''-':'-'- j.S'77r  The Mastodon Doing: Well.  O. H. Green is over from Lost  creek on the north fork of the  Salmon river, where he is doing development work on the Mastodon.  The property was bonded in De'-'  comber last to the International  Mining Company of Quebec for  $19,000, and since the bond was  given development work has proceeded ��� with satisfactory results.  Green and his men have the shaft  down some 30 feet, and from the  bottom of it have taken average  samples which- assay $35j per ton.  Should the showing continue to  improve there.is no doubt the bond  will be taken up when the time ex--  pires in June. -  At Eastern Wholesale Prices.  ^Theo Madson announces a bona  fide retiring sale of ..clothing, gents  furnishings! boots and shoes, commencing tomorrow.

RUSSIA  ON  HER   DIGNITY  REFUSES TO TALE TO THE REPRESENTATIVES OF CHINA.  Open Rebellion Threatened  in  Mongolia���Predicts That China Will Become an American Colony.  Pekin, , April 9.���The Russian  minister to China, M. De Gears, responding to the letter from prince  Ching and Li Hung Chang regarding Manchuria, refuses to hold  further communication with them  upon the subject. The Mongolian  prince Olaskan, father-in-law of  prince Tuan, proves to be an important fa.ctor in the rebellion now  in progress. He urges - the rebel  troops to march on Sian Fu. Chinese who know general Tung Fu  Sian say the emperor brought the  rebellion upon His own head when  he published the edict threatening  the general with future punishment.  On account of.his present power  and influence general Tung Fu Sian  would not permit this and naturally  desired to prove that he has the  entire Mohammedan population beT  hind him. Prince Tuan has a large  following, while prince -Olaskan  controls the entire province of  Mongolia. - _     -  Berlin, April 9.���Russia's declaration renquuping a separate agreement with China! gives great satisfaction in Berlin official circles,  since it removes all separate negotiations from having further influence upon the diplomatic, situation  at Pekin, and the general negotiations can! now",proceed uninterrupted. It is said in official circles  that it was not expected that Russia' would1- withdraw /from��� Manchuria, and now-any power propos-  "ifigfa^wi"ttrfrawal,must be prepared  to attempt, to oust her by force.  The correspondent of the Associated Press learns that the controversy between Russia - and Japan  on the subject of Corea- has been  conducted with the greatest caution on both'sides, showing an earnest wish to avoid a conflict. The  Berlin diplomats do" not expect a  conflict.  Washington, April 9.���The administration is satisfied that the  great danger of the situation at  Pekin lies in delay. Had the repre-,  sentations of Mr. -Rockhill been  heeded the officials are confident  that the formidable rebellion which  has now broken out under the leadership of general Tung Fu Sian, in  Shen Si province would never have  occurred. Mr. Rockhill had satisfied himself that the Chinese government was absolutely sincere  -whenitjpleaded-inability-topunish  this great general and prince Tuan  in the full ^measure demanded by  the powers;; It is the hope of' the  officials here that Tung ��Fu Siau's  movement will stimulate the lag-,  ging ministers at. Pekin to some  action.,^/ ..- ������A' ���  VjENNA^April- 9. ��� Theu French  economist'M. Paul Leroy Beauliu in  an article inr:the Neues'Weiner  Tageblatt,discussing which civilized  nation is" likely to exploit China,  says: "It is possible that the chief  role will fall to the United States,"  especially, when the Nicaragua  canal has been,' cut. China will  then for economic purposes become  an American colony. The Americans  know this and their whSle attitude  during recent events*1 has been  marked by finesse and foresight."  Fatal Ending of a BrawL  ; Cincinnati, April 9.���The police  are looking for ex-pugilist Mike  Conley, who'is wanted on a charge  of being implicated in the murder  of Charles D. Geldea, a telegraph  operator, who died on Sunday afteiv  noon from injuries received in ar  saloon brawl early Sunday morning.  Conley was the doorkeeper of the  place. The . police refuse to say  what information they have to  connect Conley with the affair.  Mike Conley, or "The Ithaca Giant,"  as he was , known; throughout the  cpuntry, was tihe. sparring .partner  at different times of ..both Jim Corbet and Bob Fitsimmons.  Electric Light Rates Compared.  A well-known resident of Nelson,  who is.sojourning at Victoria for a  few months, can give the city  authorities a little information regarding   electric light   rates.    Ia  Nelson his residence is lighted by  20 electric lights, for which he pays  the city a flat rate of $5 25 per  month, and- gets 10 per cent  discount for prompt payment.  While the 20 lights are not all  ablaze at one time, more light is  used than is necessary. In Victoria  his residence is lighted by 10 lights,  for which he pays a meter rate.  During the month of March he  used,' probably, five, lights on an  average of four hours a night. His  electric light bill was $4.55,- and he  got 20 per cent discount for paying  the bill promptly. He estimates  that if he had used as much electric  current in Victoria as he did in  Nelson his bill,-would have been  over $10.

Twenty-five  Thousand  Dollar   Check  Presented on the Day of  Rice's Death  (zrxxxxzrxr  PAID SPELLBINDING  The men behind the scheme  to get from the province a bonus  to aid in building a railway  from some point in Boundary  district to sortie ..point on the  Fraser river near New Westminster are -flooding the country with spellbinders. Chief  | of these is a mani. named Smith  Curtis, who for the present represents Rossland priding in the  legislative assembly. Last year  he was a government-ownership  shouter. This year he is a cash-  subsidy spellbinder. Last year  he would have no - railways  built that ^ were, stocked or  bonded for more than their cost,  and then they must be sold to  the   government   on    demand-  This year he'would-give subsidy hunters hundreds of thousands of dollars to help build a:  railway from" the" boast to Kootenay, in" order - tp divert "trade  from Rossland and Nelson and  Grand Fork's'ahd )Phoenix and  Greenwood to New: Westminis-  "terand'VancquVerand Victoria.  -Tonight��ije?wiU'-telia the -people-  ot Rossland "why .they should  take money out of'their^pockets'  in order to Jet the poor and  needy people of the coast,,cities  "put money in their pockets.'  Curtis is a peach, even if.he is* a  spellbinder.  SUICIDE AND TWO MURDERS  Californian Guillotined.  San Jose, California, April 9,���  "Death resulted from a cut in the  neck, made by a guillotine and operated with suicidal intent." Such  was the verdict returned by a coroner's jury impaneled to inquire  into the facts surrounding the death  of John Connelly, whose body was  _discov_ered_in_a_cabin_at_JWright!s  Station. Connelly had rigged up a  guillotine and cut off his own head.  He swung a broad-axe by:a rope in  such a position that, when he cut- a  cord the axe fell across this neck,  whicli was stretched on a/block of  wood conveniently located. The  plan worked effectively, as death  was probably instantaneous. Connelly was ,57 years of age and unmarried.  Mysteriously Murdered..  Wii.kesuarre, Penn., April 9.���.  Adam E. Coles of Watertown,.New*  York, was mysteriously murdered  this morning by being stabbed in  the back. He was going home with  a companion named, -.Cooper and  left him at the corner... Cooper says  he watched Coles waikingdown the  street and when aboiit a hundred  feet separated them a man ran up  the street and struck Coles down:  Cooper ran to his friend and the  murderer disappeared. Coles died  in a few minutes. - Besides Cooper's  story there is-nothing ito learn.  That Flour Mill. ;  Weighmaster Jackson yesterday-  received a.letter from his eastern  friend who is anxious to start a  flour mill in Nelson, setting forth  that as soon as the city council of  Nelson agrees to give him' the mill  site and .water rights he will come  t) Nelson and start work immediately. The board of public" works  recently expressed a willingness  to afford every encouragement to  the project, and asked for a definite  proposal from Mr. Jackson, or his  friend Friel. This proposal has  beeu made, and will probably come  before the council at its next  meeting.  New Youk, April 0.���In the  Patrick trial today Miss Lillian  Scherer, an operator employed by  the New York Telephone Company  at the Thirty-eight street exchange  office, was called. Miss Scheier  handed a slip to justice Jerome  which showed that a'call had been  received by some person using the  'phone used by lawyer Patrick.  She said the call came, in between  0 and 7 o'clock on Sunday, September 23rd. This is the day Rice  died.  Jones testified that he called up  Patrick on the telephone between  6 and 7 o'clock on the day of Rice's  death.  - Miss' Nellie J. Mellet, another  . operator in the same exchange,  identified a slip which showed that  Rice's telephone had been connected  with the instrument used by Patrick between 8 and 9 o'clock" on the  -same Sunday evening, September  23rd. There was another call between 10 and 11.  Joseph F. Bedall, a driver of the  American i1 Express. Company,   was  called and testified to. having delivered   a   package   addressed   to  ;Jones, the valet, at the Berkshire  "apartment  house  on   August 3rd,  .1900.'  The package was' from  Galveston," Texas.   This testimony was  brought in for the purpose of supporting the evidence of Jones, who  said'that he had received poisons ih  ^mrart��ek��g^v"fronr;%i^bro6herYat"  Galveston^ ,* "' ''-"'       7 '-'. *"'"' " -  John-B. Wallace,' paying teller in  the banking house of Swenson  &  Co.,   testified   that   on  September  21th, 1900, David L. Short presented  a check for $25,000, which he asked  to have certified.'   It purported to  -be drawn by William.Marsh "Rice.  ' I took the check," said the  wit-  ness, "and afterwards compared, it  with other checks drawn  by  Rice.  1 noticed" a discrepancy between  tlie face of the check and the indorsement on the back of it.  It was iridurscd Albert T.  Patrick, but on tiie face the letter  "L" was^ omitted in the Alhert  I handed back the check to Short  aud said that as it was for a large  amount it would be better to have  a new one made out. Short went  away, but returned half an hour  later. Mr. Swenson had arrived in  the meantime and I called Jones up  -on-the telephone.���I-told-him about  the check and Jones replied: 'I drew  that check; it is all right.' I then  told him that Mr. Swenson wanted  to speak to Mr. Rice. Later I sent  another clerk" to again call Mr. Rice  to the telephone, and he returned  and said Mr. Rice had died, the  night* before.* I then handed the  check back to Short. Some time  later, probably an hour, Mr. Patrick  and another man came into the  office and asked to see Mr. Swenson.  Patrick said,-'Our good friend Rice  died last.' That is all I heard.",  Mr. Wallace then testified that in  his opinion the signature on the  check was not in Mr. Rice's handwriting. -.      . ; -  On cross examihatiom.teller Wallace said that when'he'stamped the  word "accepted" on a $25,000 check  presented by Short, he had his own  opinion as to the genuiness of the,  signature and still held that opinion. He would not swear that" the  Rice signature was got genuine,  but he said that it was not a good  imitation, and pointed out some  discrepancies between the upward  and downard strokes in the letters  of the name. He described the difference as being pronounced. A recess was then taken until 7 o'clock  this evening.  -Will Purchase No More Horses,  New York, April 9.���According  to' a Washington 'special to the  Tribune, a statement has been sent  from the department, of'justice to  the United States district court at  New Orleans which will stop sych,  action as that recently brought by  agents of the Boer republics to  prevent the shipment of mules  and .horses to South Africa  which are purchased in this oouutry ,  by British offirere.. The ruling of  the department in effect is that the  courts of the United States cannot  sit iu judgment in litigation -be-  tweeu two other governments.  A special to the Times from  New Orleans says it is learned  there on apparently trustworthy  authority that the war office in  London has cabled to its agents  in this country to, wind up the  business aud to make no further  purchases of mules and horses for  the South African war.

The" Times says that The Tribune,  in the past, fought for charters for  the  Nelson  & Fort Sheppard and  Columbia & Red Mountain railways.  The Times is in' error.    Both charters   were    obtaiued    before   The  Tribune was born, and there was  no fight made against the bill whicli  gave   the   latter    legal   existence.  The Tribune, though, has fought  .   and will continue to fight for railways that will "give  the  people of  British Columbia competitive transportation facilities;-bub it reserves  - the right to use its own judgment in  singling out the railways that are  likely to confer such benefits. It  does not consider that the Crow's  Nest Southern will be a competitive  ��� railway in the sense that the Nelson  & Fort Sheppard and Columbia&Red  Mountain railways are., The two  last named gave the great mining  districts of Nelson and Slocan and  Trail, with their varied business interests and ventures, competitive  railway facilities with all points in  Eastern Canada and the Pacific  Coast. Were they alone for the  purpose1 of hauling ore from mines  like the Le Roi  to a smelter just  j'-across' the line at Northport, or for  - hauling farm produce grown in the  ' Colville valley to the mining camps  in the Slocan, their  building would  be opposed by The Tribune. ' The  -^-town���of���Fernie���has���no���great-  commercial importance. It is not a  distributing point, and the only  business done there is with the men.  employed in the coal mines owned  by the Crow's Nest Coal Company.  This company brought 'into existence through the expenditure'of  . five millions of .dollars^ of money,  contributed by.the people: of Can-i  ada is not satisfied to ship the product of its coal mines over the railway built by these millions of Canadian.money. It wants to divert  its traffic to a railway owned and  built and operated by aliens in an  alien land, and in order to do so is.  willing to have its coal hauled over  a route that is hundreds of miles  longer than  existing  routes.    THE  ������  Tribune is opposed to the building  ;   of any such rail ways,-even, if in doing so. it incurs the enmity of the  - Greenwood Times. ���-,���-...   ���-   -.  bring in farm produce grown in the  Kalispei section of Montana to compete with the produce grown in the  farming districts of Alberta. The  building of the road will add little  to the permanent wealth of Canada  in comparison .with the wealth that  it will draw from Canada.  There   are   people ��� who believe  if   the Mine  Owners'   Association  wereto purge itself of one or two  of . its  members  that the Western  Federation cf Miners would follow  suit.    Were this to occur J. Roderick   Robertson would   have   more  time to deyote to the management'  of' the companies whose interests,  he is paid to look after, and James  Wilks  might find time  to become  better acquainted with his political  ally, Smith Curtis.  It is rumored that James Wilks,  J. Roderick Robertson and Smith  Curtis have formed an offensive and  defensive political alliance. Wilks  is to work the' Labor party and  Curtis the Liberals. <- J. Roderick's  ambition is to <:work" them both.  ���'"   The  Crow's  Nest :Pasa railway  ; was built by  Canadian money in'  . order that phe coal in  the Crow's  Nest   pass   could   be   supplied   to  smelters   in'   Kootenay   and  Ya!e  ., districts, so that they would be independent of -American coal  mines  , and coke ovens for  a  fuel  supply ;  ; also, in order, that  the farmers  of  Alberta  could  market their farm  produce in the camps whose mines  supplied these smelters   with ore!  The Crow's Nest Southern railway,  if built, will not only  divert traffic  fiom the Crow's Nest Pass road, but  The Big Three that are trying to  dominate the business and political  interests of Kootenay are: James  Wilks, J. Roderick Robertson, and  Smith Curtis. Are they big enough  for the job they have undertaken?  Roderick has the sinews of "war,  Jim has the votes, and Smith Curtis  has the wind power fairly well  developed.   Committed for Burglary.  Greenwood, April 9.���[Special to  The Tribune.] - W. D. Brewster was  today committed for trul on a  charge of breaking into the dry  goods store of- C. F. Williams at 2  o'clock Monday mortiing. The cash  register was emptied.

Cabinet Discussions.  .Washington,'April 9.���The cabinet meeting today lasted about one  hour. Mr. Knox, the new attorney  general,-wan presented to his colleagues and created a very favorable-impression. Much of the time!  of the meeting was given to the question of the indemnity which the  powersatedemandirigof China. Representations concerning the exces-'  siv����demandsofthe powers have been  made.:by' the United States, but  without effect. No official confirmation has been received by the gov-:  erntnent of the reported rejection  of the Piatt amendment to the Cuban constitutional convention. The  matter was discussed by the cabinet and it was considered strange^  that general Wood had not communicated so important a fact, if it  were true.  Ignores the Emperor.  ' St. Petersburg, April 9.���The  Novoe Vremya avers that Russia  has now no cause for uneasiness regarding Manchuria. She possesses  separate, agreements with the governor of each of three provinces  which remain in force. In the future  if China desires her former- proposition restored at any time, she can  sign the treaty in her possession. In  the meantime the St: Petersburger  Zeitung says Russia is free to act  in Manchuria for the preservation  of order as her j udgment directs.

Queen Alexandra will go to Cronberg to visit  the dowager empress Frederick and  the dowager czarina will proceed to  St. Petersburg.  The health of the emperor of  Russia has been shaken by the recent commotions, says the St. Petersburg correspondent of the London Daily Express, and he will  probably abdicate if the next child  of the empress should be a daughter.

The" situation is a critical one and hangs entirely upop the result of the-remarkable election which is-.riow in  progress. ,        ~ * ��� ,  Wilkesbarre, April 9.���The employees of this division of the "Central railway of New Jersey, it is  said, have voted almost unanimously in favor of a strike, provided'that vice-president Warren,  of the road, still persists in rel'us-  the Brotherhood officials a confer-,  ence. The strike will be more serious in this region than in any othen  along the road, as it would "compel  the' suspension, of working, mines'  which have no other outlet for their  product, and would force about 12,-  000 miners to quit work.

In this petition,, which bears 600.0 signatures,  the Porto Ricans say: "Misery, with  all its- horrible consequences*, is  spreading in pur homes with won-  'derful rapidity. It has already  reached an extreme that many  workers are starving to death,  while others that have not the cour-'  age to' see' their mothers, wives, sisters and children perish by hunger  commit suicide by drowning themselves in the rivers or hanging  themselves from branches bf trees.-'  , Ex-convicts recently released from  the penitentiary are burglarizing  stores and private- residences in  Kingston, Ontario.

New York, April 9.���Major S. N.  B.-Young, who has served nearly  two 'years in the Philippines, is  quoted as saying in an interview  which took place at Washington:  "Even if all- the leaders of the Filipinos do come in and surrender,  there will remain small organized  bands for some time to come which  will can-��e trouble.' I am not in  favor of reducing our military force  in tlio' i.-liiiids oelovv tbe- 60,000  limit. We shall need fully., this  number of men to maintain peace  and give assurance of tranquility  Had not general Trios surrendered  before the capture of Aguinaldo, he  would; no doubt, have been selected  as the Filipino leader and made an  effortto continue the insurrection.'.'  Manila, April 9.���Although the  officials are uncommunicative it is  nevertheless said that Aguinaldo  signed the peace -manifesto this  morning. Chief justice Arellano  drafted the document. ' Aguinaldo  strongly objected to two clauses  and considerable argument was required to overcome his objections.  Colonel Abax, the insurgent leader  of JS^nibales province, with- 13  officers'and 83 men and 92 rifles,  surrendered to lieutenant-colonel  Ooodrell, commanding the marines  stationed at Olongapo.

He failed to secure a following.  .  -Thevsentiment of the provincial  government is almostunanimous in  favor, of the division of the fund of  $70,000 Mexican currency now in  the hands of the present- government of the. Negros  between the  proposed ptovincesof the Occidental  ahd-Oiiental.Negros.. The bone of  contention is that the commission  set apart two-thirds of this fund*;  for Occidental   and   one-third for  Oriental Negros, the difference in  *;he amounts  to be offset  by the  taxes still unpaid at Ba'colod.  ��� A resolution-fpr the organization'  c>f two provinces"has been adopted.  Details "have  been embodied pro-'  viding for the obligations of the-,  present government. The provinces'  will be created later.  Japan's Objections.  Yokohama, April 9.���The dissatisfaction of Japan with Russia's  action is not in regard to the  Manchurian agreement, the leading-  papers here affirm, but with Russia's  action in Manchuria. Hence Japan'  declines, according to. an 'important  section of the press, to consider the  abandonment of the agreement as  a final settlement of the Manchurian  question. It is urged that this,  question should be brought before  a conference of the ministers, like  the other Chinese questions.  Boer Capital Captured. ,  " London, April9.���Lord Kitchener,  reporting to the war office under  date of Pretoria, April 8th,. says:,  Plummer has.occupied Pietereberg  with slight opposition. He captured  two locomotives' and 39 trucks."  The capture of Pietersburg 'is re-'  garded here as important'. The  place is the' terminus of the railway  and has bean ...the capital of the  Boer government since the evacuation of Pretoria. The whole northern railway is now in the hands of  the British, According tp lord  Kitchener's dispatch only ��� one oflV  cer and one man were killed. The  Boers evacuated the town during  the night prior to Plummer's arrival, after blowing, up two trucks  laden with ammunition. Lord  Kitchener further reports the capture of 16 prisoners, 15 horses, and  the depot of war stores at Bo"h-  manskop, Orange River Colony. As  IIPEfilAL BAM  OF    O-A-ZCT-AJD-A.  HEAD  OFFICE.

Baxter has brought to town  some nice samples of ore recently  taken fiom his claim on Biid creek,  some twelve and a half miles west  of'-Nelsori. There are two tunnels on  the property and, sorc,e 8.5 feet of  open ctus.^ One of the tunnels is  now in- (3() feet and the other 40  feet, and as* woik proceeds the  showing improves. Ore has been  taken", out .running from* seven to  nine onuces in gold to the ton, and  of this quality Baxter says there is  quantify," too." The new" samples  are certainly very rich.   .  Chimney Fire.  James Neelands, of the Office  saloon, was invpolice' court yesterday morning for neglecting to keep  his chimney- flue clean, thereby  causing a fire and the calling out of  the fire brigade. Ic was shown that  the flue iu question was used by  several persons iu the same building,  and a line of- $2i50 waa "imposed.  Every time the brigade is called  out��it costs the city on an average  $25, and chief Lillie is anxious to  have the public treasury roinf  b'ursed in case of chimney,fires.  ^.

The government should not  only repeal the mineral tax, but it  should make larger appropriations  for wagon roads in the mining districts." The East Kootenay man  has come to -the conclusion that  there are few fair-minded men in  the country.  The Injured Barge.  Barge No. 15, which so nearly  foundered in the lake on Monday  morning, was yesterday" towed to  tho C. P. It. shipyard for repairs.  Of the fifteen laden cars which were  on board at the time of the accident  not one has. beeu saved., "The  truck* of a few of them will probably be rescued from the beach, but  nothing of those which went down  in deep water will be recovered. No  further particulars can be learned  as to who the two men were, who  are supposed to have goue down  with the cars.  House Breaking.'  The clothing store of George  Williams at Greenwood was on  Monday night broken into by a  man said to have" figured ia a  swindling case before. It was reported to the'proprietor of the store  that business was going on their  after closing hours. He-went across  to Madden's saloon, and securing  the assistance of a "couple of stalwart fellows, proceeded to investigate. On searching the premises  he found-the housebreaker in the  act of trying to force the safe. The  burglar was handed-ovef to the  police.       ' -.   ."' ' '  PERSONAL.:  Pour-  Both Were Dissatisfied.  A gentleman who makes his home  in Ea.st Kootenay when on a trip  to the Coa��c met a well-known resident of the Fraser river valley who  follows farming for a living. In  talking over matters and things in  general, the Fraser river farmer  said: 'I do not see any good reason!  why the government should spend  so much money in'building roads  up in the mining districts of Kootenay; the money should be sp^nt  down ht-re in . dyking our lands.".  Lnaving the- Coast and coming up  to Revelstoke, he ran up against a  mau who is. operating a mine in  Trout Like district." This man was  highly incensed because the govern:.  ment refused'to repeal the mineral  tax section of the Assessment Ac*,:  and went on to say: "Why are we  required to pay heavy taxes in or-  P?ter McVeigh and James  pore leave * elson for.
