C, SATURDAY MORNING,  APRIL G,  1901  PRICE EIYE CENTS~  RUSSIA STATES HER CASE  SIMPLY WANTED NORMAL CONDITIONS RESTORED.  Alarmist Rumors in the Foreign Press,  However,  Upset All the  Calculations.  St. Petersburg, April 5.���The  Official Messenger today published  a detailed review of the negotiations  conducted by the allied powers  with the Chinese plenipotentiaries  at Tien Tsin and Pekin and of the  negotiations that led to the presentation of the French draft of  peace conditions, which consisted of  twelve points, but are'not yet  concluded.  The Bussian government then  makes the following statement:'  . " While anticipating an early settlement of the questions affecting the  mutual relations between all the  powers and China, the Russian  government, on it? part, considered  it necessary to concern itself with  the establishment of a permanent  order, of things in the Chinese  territories along the borders of  which the Russian Asiatic possessions extend for a distance of  eight thousand versts (5300 miles).  To this end provisional -written  conditions for a modus vivendi  were agreed upon first between the  Russian military authorities and  the -Chinese governors of three  Manchurian provinces.  "With reference to the subsequent institution of a local civil  administration and after a careful  consideration of all the circumstances the Russian government  drew up the draft of an agreement  with China providing for the gradual evacuation of Manchuria, as.  ��� well as" for the adoption of pro-'  visional measures to assure peace in  that territory and to prevent the  * recurrence of events similar to  those of last year. Unfortunately,  ���with the object of stirring up  public opinion against Russia,  alarmist rumors were circulated in  the foreign pressv regarding the  purpose and intentions of the Russian government. ' Falsified texts of  a treaty establishing a protectorate  over Manchuria were quoted and  erroneous reports were designedly  spread of an alleged agreement  between Russia and China.  " As a matter of fact this agree-  '  ment was "to serve as a basis for the  ' restoration to China,  as   contemplated by the Russian government,  of the province of Manchuria, which  . in  consequence   of   the   alarming  events of last year was occupied by  % Russian troops.   In order that the  requisite military measures  might  "^Keltakeirit was imperative"that~the'  ' question should be settled one way  or the Other.    It was  impossible to  lay down  forthwith, by means of  has created a profoundly favorable  impression at the state department.  It is looked upon as the most  salutory development that, has  occurred ,iu many months in the  eastern situation. Although the  terms of the Russian communication  are withheld it is known that  Russia gives a strong assurance of  her disinterested purposes in her  dealings with China. The belief is  held in official quarters that the as*  surances of Russia are so sweeping  as to completely avert the threatened crisis in Manchuria.  AGITATING  FOR   REFINERY  DELEGATES WHO LEAVE FOR OTTAWA THIS MORNING  mutual agreement, the conditions of  the evacuation of Manchuria. According to the news received,  serious hindrances were placed in  the way of the conclusion of such  an agreement and in consequence'of  its acceptance by China, which was  indispensable for the gradual evacuation of the province, proved to be  impossible.  " As regards the eventful restoration of the province to China, it is  ��� manifest that su'ch^ intention  can  .only'.be   carried voii-V  when   the  .normal situation shall be completely  -'restored'   in   the.,,empire   and the  ; r central govern ment. established  at  the capital independent and strong  enough to guarantee Russia, against  an   occurrence   of   the   events   of  ltist year."        ; ���;..    '" ,-   Will Await Future' Events.  Sj. Petersburg, April 5.���The  Russian goyernment concludes a  'lengthy statement respecting the  Manchuria agreement in these  words: "While the Russian government maintains its present organi-  . zation ia Manchuria to preserve order in the vicinity of the broad  frontiers of Russia" and remains  faithful to its oft repeated political  program, it will quietly await the  further course of events." :  Reassurances From Russia.  Washington, April 5. ��� The  United States government has received a communication from the  government, of Russia of unusual  i mportance. It bears on conditions  in China and particularly those relating to Manchuria. The document  By Far Too Modest.  Findlay, Ohio, April 5.���Some  time ago the Franklin Literary  Society of the Ada voted a sum of  money to purchase a classical statue  to t>efflBB|toyJiehall.   The com-  for a, cast orTE^^iHous Apollo  Belvidere. Last week it arrived,  and the committee, composed of  young ladies and gentlemen, began  unpacking it.- When the figure was  fully revealed the young ladies  screamed and ran from the hall.  They declared they had been insulted by-the dealers and that thoy  would never allow the statue a  place in the college. The faculty  took the matter up, and a long contention arose between those who  adored art for art's sake aud those  who were shocked. It was finally  decided that the statue must be  returned or else appropriately  draped. The men were mad. Going  to a local tailor, they had him make  a .pair of red velvet breeches in  which they clothed the offending  statue, and thus attired Apollo  now received callers.  To Lay Before the Government a Strong  Case in Favor of a Bonus of  $5  Per Ton.  " Many Jews Killed.  New York, April 5 ���A dtepatclu  printed in the New York Journal  today under date of Constantinople  says many Jews have been killed  and scores wounded in a religious  riot in Teheran, the Persian capital.  The date of the occurrence is not  given. The dispatch says the riot  was started by the, Moslem .sheik  Ildrahim, who angered the Mohammedan worshippers "as they were  leaving the mosque. He quit his  pulpit and led the mob in person.  Many Jews had been killed and  wounded when troops arrived and  dispersed the mob. The sheik was  seized and the shah ordered that he  be executed.  A New Preservative.  Copenhagen, April 8.���A Danish  butter-maker has discovered a new  preservative whicli excels everything in that line heretofore known.  By means of this preparation it is  possible to preserve butter, meats  and all kinds of perishable merchandise. Experiments show that  butter, for instance, can be preserved, melted and cooled off again  without losing any ot its freshness.  It can also be placed among goods  that are decomposing or contain  rank odors without being affectecL  "The-preparation^if==HotT=injirfiouT  from a sanitary point of'view and  it is said will create a,revolution in  the shipping of perishable merchandise. .'-'..*������, '  To Honor Ramsden.  Washington, April,5.���The navy  department recently supplied lord  Pauncefote, a photograph of the  beautiful bronze tablet which "it  was about to place upon phe house  at Santiago occupied by' the late  Frederick W. Ramsden, the British  consul who exerted himself so benevolently in aid of the American  residents and prisoners during the  siege. A  Prominent Railroad Man 111.  Chicago, April 5.���D. ��� D. Robinson, formerly first vice-president of  the Atchison, Topeka and Santa  Fe Railroad, is seriously ill in this  city from heart disease. The attack is a severe one, but members  of his family feel hopeful of his recovery.  Large Passenger List,  New York, April 5.���The North  German Lloyd steamer Rhein,  which arrived today from Bremen,  had 2449 steerage passengers, probably the largest number ever  brought by a single steamer to this  port.  Presented With a Medal.  Johannesburg, April 5.���Lord  Kitchener has personally presented  the Red Cross medal to Madame  Ferriers, head of the French ambulance detachment, for her services  to the British wounded.  The agitation for   the   establishment   of   a. refinery    somewhere  in   the   Kootenays���preferably in  Nelson���has assumed practical shape  and this morning delegates leave  for Ottawa to lay the subject   before the government and ask that  a bonus of $5 per ton be given for  the   refining   of    silver-lead - ores  mined in   British Columbia/   The  various   public bodies throughout  the province heartily   endorse the  scheme,   but   it   is   here   in    the  Kootenays where silver-lead is produced in the greatest quantity that  the absence of such an establishment is most severely felt.   As  is  well known the raw material from  -this section is sent in great quantities   to   the   other   side   of   the  boundary line for treatment and  there   it   is   manufactured.     The  smelters of this country are inadequate to handle all the ore that  offers and up to recent date a great  deal of it was purchased by the  American smelters.-Since, however,  these have closed their doors against  British   Columbia,   many   of    the  mines      in     the   ' lead-producing  districts*  have    been    practically  closed   down   or   only    operated  Noh    a    smail     scale.     With   _a  refinery in the'" Kootenays a great  impetus   would be given to min-.  ing, which is, unquestionably   the  staple industry of this part of the  province.    On^the trail of a refinery  a   number   of   kindred   industries  would naturally follow-, making this  1 thebiisjest spot in the. whole Tfom-  inion.  .But the refining of ores!is  somewhat expensive as is also the  machinery necessary to run successfully'   an   establishment    of-   the  sort:   At the same time a market  has to be secured for the product���  or at least that manufactured in  excess   'of    the    requirements   of  Canada.   The   refineries ' of    the  United     States '  are     old     concerns, ' and .  have   their    market  made.   Hence it is deemed desirable to encourage manufacture by  a bonus from the government, and  with this object in view the following delegates proceedTto Ottawa today to urge upon the powers, that  be this view of tha situation :  Rossland���M. D. Logan, appointed  by the board of trade.  Kaslo���G. O. Buchanan, A. W.  Goodenougb, George Alexander,  from board of trade; mayor, Carlson ,^alderm*eir F. E.

Croasdaile left Nelson a few  days ago for Ottawa as the repre  of     '"  the force will have a distinct advantage in getting into communication with persons likely to give  them civil employment should.they  desire to settle in the country when  they leave the service. The pay is  good with no deductions and no inducement to lavish expenditure.  Moreover, promotion is pretty certain to be very rapid for any young  ambitious man who could and  would devote himself to his duties.  As regards clothing, persons should  go out with a good supply. -' The  clothes should not be too heavy,  but similar to what would be needed  in summer and autumn in this  country, and should include a good  mackintosh. It is also advisable, if  a cyclist, to take out a good machine,  as they are .sold at big prices in  Africa.,  ��� Sydney's Success.  J. P. Porter of the Robb Engineering Company, Amherst, Nova  Scotia, is in the city, He gives a  glowing account of Sydney's success.  The big steel works are now employing 2000 hands and'it is a  purely Canadian institution, rumors  to the contrary notwithstanding.  It was reported some time ago that  the works had fallen into the hands  of an .American trust, but Mr.  Porter asseits that this is not-the.  case. .A year or two ago Sydney  was a place of some -3000 inhabitants; today it boasts of a population  of 12,000, with a big fleet of  steamers plying to Belle Isle for  ore, a large coking concern supplied  from the coal fields qf Glace Bay,  and a big gas -works. The output  of the iron works is about 1000 tons  per day.      Both Bad Shots.  Nice, April 5:���Iu the duel fought  on the frontier of Monacco yesterday between count ��� Kontozenoff  Tolstoi, a lieutenant in a /Cossack  regiment, v and' count Tarnowski,  secretary of the Austro-Hungary  legation at Washington, the Seconds  were prince Korohguibey and  prince Podorania for!:count Tolstoi,  and-- counts.... Rohozinagy- -and  'RonickTes for - count*' Tarnowski.  The seconds selected an'umpire, who-  decided that, owing to the gravity"  of the offence, the .honor of the  principals required the use of pistols  first and then swords. The meeting was in consequence of a public  altercation, the cause of which is  not-known. , The two shots were  exchanged without a hit and in the  first assault with ��� svvords count  Tarnowski was wounded in the  forearm.

Sailed  Yesterday.  Toulon,   April 5.���The Russian  fleet sailed from here today.  Prospects in South Africa,.  One who' has recently;-returned  from South Africa says that almost any class of intending emigrant is to be emphatically warned  against going out there at the present time. A great deal of poverty  is prevalent through the incursion  of a large surplus population into  the Cape Colony and Natal from the  Free State and Transyaal. Speaking of the mounted police force,  which so many of the young men of  Nelson have enlisted in, he points  out that the term of enlistment is  one of only three years with the  option of purchasing a discharge at  the expiration of six months' service,  and says that the members of the  body will get a good insight into  ways of the country. They will  also have an excellent opportunity  of learning both Dutch and  Kaffir. The former language is  most essential., in the case  of all who intend to stay in  any part of the country apart from  the large towns.   The members of'  To Study American.  London, April 5.���The managers  of a number of iron manufactories  of the Manchester district have decided to send out a picked party of  British workmen to the United  States for the purpose of studying  American methods of workmanship  in the automatic tool.,trade. The  districts of New. England, Phil-  adelphia, Cincinnati and Chicago  and^other^steel centers will-be  visited in the hope of .convincing  the British workmen of the necessity of improved methods if they  desire to retain their share of the  world's trade.  Knox Is Attorney-General.  Washington, April 5.���The  president made the first announcement that Mr. Knox had accepted  the post of attorney-general to the  cabinet today. His commission,  which is dated today, was signed  immediately after the president had  informed his advisors of ..their new  colleague's acceptance.  Secretary Hay submitted to the  cabinet the Russian communication  referred to in a previpun dispatch and  the news was "accepted as an indication that the tension in' the far  east would be removed. f-.-l  A Lucky Speculation.  Toledo, Ohio, April 5.���The Bee  publishes a story today to the effect  that Dr. Ash, a former resident of  this city, has just sold to John D.  Rockefeller for $1,000,000 160 acres  in northern Wisconsin which Dr.  Ash purchased in 1884 for $1000 on  speculation. The tract is said to  include the only harbor in northern  Wisconsin.  A Diplomat Dead.  Syracuse, New York, April 5.���  A special to the Post-Standard from  Skanatele says : James Edward  Porter died in that village tonight  aged 78 years. Mr. Porter was born  in Albany and was secretary of the  legation at Rome for several years.  He was related to commodore  Porter. A daughter, Mrs. Burritt  of Waterbury, Connecticut, survives.  Vancouver, April 5.���[Special to  The Tribune.]���It is reported that  there is an arrangement on- foot  whereby Mackenzie & Mann  will  tender on the construction of the  Coast-Kootenay  line on   specifications called for by the government.  Hugh Sutherland, ex-M.P., made a  thorough investigation of the plans  the other day at Victoria and then  left for the east with the intention,  according to a creditable report, of  conferring on the whole question  with William Mackenzie at Toronto.  He will be back in ten days and the  probability is that the next surprise at Victoria will be that the  backers of the Victoria, Vancouver  & Eastern will tender, even though  they have already stated that the  specifications were impossible and  the conditions absurd, and that it  was simply a scheme to let in the  C. P. R.    The" Vancouver Mass Meeting.  Vancouver, April 5.���[Special to  The Tribune.]���At a mass meeting  held here yesterday evening a heavy  ai ray of speakers were in favor of  the Victoria, Vancouver & Eastern  Company, but the temper of the  meeting was such that only a much  modified resolution- passed, opposing the building of the coast-Koot-  enay road by the C. P. "R.l Smith  Cui'tis made" a stirring speech favoring . government ��� ownership'.of  -roads and all the speakers did practically the same,^only~urgirig.';'thatv  it would be too long ' to wait for.  this. The plainly expressed desire  of Victoria to have Vancouver  placed on a side track branch line  has aroused alarm and indignation  here and this was expressed at the  meeting. Popular feeling appears  to be that the government should  make the best terms possible look- -  ing towards the immediate construction of the line.  000,000 if the confederates would  abandon the war and come into the  Union. A letter was written to  Mr. Stephens by Stephen W. Blount  of St. Augustine, asking him if  such an offer had been made. Mr.  Stephens wrote him that the statement was untrue.

"        -  Losing Confidence.  * London, April 6.���The Field corn-  men ting on the forthcoming' races  for the America Cup says: -'The average British sportsman long ago  arrived at the conclusion that our  American cousins are one too many  for us at the yacht game and most  yachtsmen refuse to accept the  hardy annals offered as apologies  for successive defeats. These excuses fail to -'account for the, fact  that although since 1851 some- 25  races have been sailed, only .twice  has the British yacht come in first."���  The American Henley.  New London, Connecticut, April  5.���As an outcome of a conference  held here today between Mr.] Henderson of Boston, chairman of the  American Henley Company, and F.  E. Chappell, chairman of the local  regatta board, it seems probable  that the American Henley will be.  an assured fact for the coming sea-'  son and that races will be - held ' at  New London for two - days > bf the!  same week in which the university  crews race here.  ,  The Easter Trade Fully Up  to.

H. Stephens,  senator R. W. Hunter, and assistant  secretary of war John W. Campbell,  for the confederacy. Judge Reagan  quotes extracts from various public  documents and books to prove Mr.  Lincoln had no idea of giving compensation for slaves who were to be  freed, or of treating with the confederate states as such.  ' " On the night of . the return of  Mr. Stephens from that conference,"  judge Reagan says, "he told James  L. Orr, a senator from South Carolina, that'the Hampton Roads conference was fruitless and hopeless  because Mr. Lincoln offered the  confederacy nothing but unconditional submission. The same  thing was told to T. B. Sexton, a confederate congressman  from Texas, who wrote of the  interviews to Judge Reagan.  Shortly after the war Judge  Reagan became involved in a  controversy because he denied that  president Lincoln had offered $100,-  Trust Problem.

THE  HUDSON'S BAY  ; STOEES  BAKER STREET        NELSON:  '��he fffribnne*  Vancouver furnishes a hew  political rumor to the effect that  . premier Dunsmuir is to resign and  that Tatlow of Vancouver will succeed him. This story is doubtless  intended for circulation in Victoria  only. -         Japanese are employed at the  Mount Sicker mine on Vancouver  Island. They are paid 90 cents a  day and are engaged at sorting ore..  ��� This information will doubtless increase Kootenay's interest in the  Japanese question.  The output of the coal seams of  the Canadian Yukon for the past  year was 5000 tons. The operators  have not yet got below, the frost  line in their workings, but they expect to this season, when their output will be considerably increased.  So anxious . is the Vancouver  World to secure for the promoters  of the Victoria, Vancouver & Eastern their subsidy of $4000 per mile,  that it suggests to Premier Dunsmuir that he allow the aforesaid  promoters to do his thinking until  railway matters are satisfactorily  arranged.  W. M. Brewer, the correspond-  - ent of the Engineering and Mining  Journal   of New   York, who   has  given the people of British Columbia the ;advantage of his opinions  upon the railway and other problems   which   at present   confront  them, now appears in a lengthy interview in which he attempts to  account for, the tardy development  of the mineial resources of the province.    Oddly enough Mr: Brewer  locates the responsibility for this  state of affairs, everywhere except  with   the   people   who   have   the  actual development in hand.   His  lirst cbntributary cause is  the lack  of   transportation     facilities,    his  second the greed of prospectors in  holding more claims than they can  handle, and his third the: action of  the government in imposing a tax  upon the net value of the output of  the mines, in lieu of all other taxes  upon mining   property.     Not one  word as to the deception practiced  in the floatation of companies, or  the   incapacity    shown    in    their  management    after     they     have  been       floated.       Residents       of  Kootenay   who   read   Mr. Brewer's    interview   will   be   inclined  to say that he has missed hi3 guess.  In their opinion;  the   district  has  suffered moro from  the incapacity  of the men who have been charged  with  the  expenditure of   the investors' money, than from any  of  the causes he has named.    Nothing  injures the reputation of a district  more   than   failures,   and   mining  freaks have charged more failures up  against West Kootenay than there  was any justification   for.   There  have been too many  schemes in  which the mining wassail done  in  London, in which illegitimate profits were earned there, and resultant failure'charged against mineral  prospects in Kootenay.   It is quite  within the   recollection   of   many  how     prospects,   worth    a     few  thousand   dollars   at   the utmost,  have been watered andfloated upon  a valuation.which precluded even  the   possibility of ..the   investors  getting   any   returns  upon   their  money.   There have been cases ��� in  which mills have been erected with  a greater daily capacity than the  probable   annual   tonnage  of   the  property.   There" have been  cases  where mills have been erected before it was demonstrated that the  ore   from - the   property had any  commercial value;   and there have  been cases where mills have been  erected while it was an open question   whether   the   ore   was - free  milling or not.   All these failures,  however, will be charged against  the district, and few who have been  bitten will risk additional money in  other mining ventures in the district, or even in the province.  Men  who undertake to fix responsibility  should be fair.   -They- should not  attempt to saddle upon the government   responsibility- tor   the   incompetence   of   individuals. . The  development of British Columbia's  mineral resources does not depend  upon     additional     transportation  facilities, more conscientious prospectors, or immunity from taxation,  half so much as it does .upon intelligent application by those entrusted  with the expenditure of investors'-'  money. -         - French Law Respects Persons.  The influence of the American  millionaires now doing the Riviera  was-potently shown in Nice Prance,  recently, when the French government officials stood by and winked  ab a,prize fight. The result was a  complete knock-out���an American  being declared the winner. The  fight was between-James Fitzgerald,  the American middleweight, and  George Bourdon, of Australia. But  the fight and the fighters were only  an incident compared to the glittering circle of millionaires present at  the ringside. Down in "front, his:  elbows almost touching the ropps.  sat William K. Vanderbilt, Sr.  Next to him sat William K., Jr.  A little further back was George  Munro in the center of a.crowd of  friends. To the left of the ring  loomed up Marmaduke Brown and  Eugene Higgins, each every now-  and then chirping a word of encouragement to the American  pugilist. Behind the seconds in the  American's corner Harry Ridge way  and consul Van. Buren exchanged  notes on the two fighters���and behind and all about the ring were  others equally as wealthy and  equally as well known, who cheered  lustily when the American fighter  put his opponent down and out.  The fight lasted three rounds. It  went fast and furious while it  lasted. After the battle was over  the Americans crowded about! Fitzgerald. , frize fighting is prohibited  in France, but the fight was not interfered with, simply because of  the great influence of American  millionaires.  Progress of the Ophir. .  Aden,.

PUBLIC SENTIMENT AROUSED  ORIENTAL COMPETITION NOW A  LIVE  SUBJECT.  I :  Hill Is Spending Thousands in Victoria  in the Hope of Securing a Subsidy for the V. V. & E.  Victoria, April 2.���[Special correspondence to The Tribune.]���The  excitement-over politics during the  session bf tlie legislature has to  some extent obscured the work  done by the Chinese commission.  The papers have not been able to  report the proceedings of the commission as fully as if their columns  had. not been burdened with, tbe  parliamentary debates. Justice has  not   been   done   to   the   immense  , amount of information bearing un  the question of Chinese immigration  which has been secured. As might  have been expected in Victoria  there have been - defenders - of  Chinese immigration heard before  the commission. These have taken  the line that Chinese, were beneficial as affording an unfailing supply of cheap labor to cleav the land,  for menial tasks about the house  and for the lowest grade of labor  in factories. Some have gone so  far as  to hint  that  the  province  'would be benefited by the presence  of a coolie class kept permanently  in a condition of servility 'aud  .utilized for rough work, in other  words that" the-province should be  a slave-holding community.' By  means of this labor it has been said  that manufacturers here can enter  into direct competition with manufacturers in the east of Canada and  not only,drive them out of the local  and northern - market but prevent  them from ever acquiring the  trade of the Orient. On the other  hand a great mass of evidence has  beeu submitted to show that the  supplanting of white by coolie  labor leads to the supplanting of  the merchant and manufacturing  classes also in course of time. The  working of the process in the trade  and business of Victoria has fairly  been^ proved. The report of the  commission will make clear to the  people of eastern Canada that while  a certain amount of manufacturing  competition may, be looked for in  =certain=lines-of��� goods=not=merely^  the labor but the capital and profi ts  . will appertain to the Chinese. So,  that eastern manufacturers will  have to compete not with a Canadian  province using ."coolie labor, but  with an actual Chinese and Japanese "settlement on the Pacific  coast, worthless '"as a "market for  Canadian products and entering  into direct competition with  Canadian enterprise in the manufacture of certain lines of goods. >  ������/���'' This has been the economical, side  of the commission's work. There is  also a social side. The impossibility of assimilating either of the yellow races to our standard or ways  bf living has been clearly demonstrated. The. 'Chinese have been  shown to be really a foreign nation  living inside the boundaries of our  .country and amenable to' certain  leguia.tiohs.'but as really foreign as  if they dwelt on a different planet.  In^British Columbia we understand ,  all this. It is driven home every  day of our lives. But throughout  the rest of Canada they do not  understand it and the commission  will flood the question with light.  Never. was there a question on  which light was more needed.  The most remarkable feature,  about the present session of the  legislature has been the outside  canvassing which has been going on  and particularly the lobby which  has been put up by Messrs. Mackenzie & Mann and J. J. Hill in con-  > nectioh with the Victoria, Vancouver & Eastern railway bonus.  Things were never done on such a  ginnd scale before. Expense has  apparently been no object at all.  Deputations have been brought  from    all     over      the    country,  jneetiuga havo  been held, resolu-  SAVINOS BANK DEPARTMENT:  .Interest allowed on  deposits.

HOLT,  Managor Nelson Branch.  tior s and petitions procured, and  pressure brought to bear on every  individual member of the legislature directly or through their constituents. The climax of the agitation was reached in Victoria a week  ago Friday when the three mem-  bei s from Victoria outside the cabinet pledged themselves to a coast-  Kootenay railway in competition  with and independent of the Canadian Pacific railway.  The issue has not yet been  brought before the legislature by  any definite action taken by the  government, which is waiting for  an answer from the Dominion government in reference to railway  matters, and also till it sees who is  in the field to build this, railway.  Smith Curtis endeavored . to" force  the issue, resolution calling for  certain returns. He addressed the  house for two hours on the subject  last Monday. His motion was  really a motion of want of confidence and was defeated as such.  Both Joe Martin and J. C. Brown  repudiated his tactics. No one  spoke on the subject except Cuitis  and Turner, who made a short perfunctory reply. Smith" Curtis has  become easily the premier bore of  the legislature. McPhillips had'that  honor up till this session, but  Curtis has driven him into  obscurity. He talks at inconceivable length on every subject that . comes., up. At first  there was a stir of interest when  he spoke, as he is sometimes an  effective speaker, but now the  sound of his voice drives the members out of the house as effectually-  as the division bell rings them in.  Curtis had great difficulty in reconciling 'his present attitude on  the railway question.with"his previous campaign in favor "of government ownership of railways. He is  now advocating, the granting of a  bonus and cfranchise to a company  whicli considers that bonus and  franchise so valuable that it is  spending thousands of dollars on a  lobby in the effort to. secure them.  He does not apparently see any  contradiction himself. The fact is  he is in a' different environment  now and like the chamelion he takes  the color of his surroundings with--  out being purposely inconsistent. this fatal lack of ballast whieh  wrecks his usefulness. He plunges  this way and ^ that and cannot  understand why people should re-,  fuse to listen to him and accuse him  of inconsistency whenever he takes  a new fad in his head.  A NEW COINAGE.  =In=due^=season���the^well-known^  coinage of her late "majesty queen  Victoria will give place to a new  series of designs. Gold coins are  withdrawn from the circulation in  the natural course; of events, according to certain mint regulations  irrespective of any alteration in the  reign.' This is due to the fact that  light coins are never re-issued.  Consequently it is by the rarest'  chance that one ever comes across  any sovereigns^ or half sovereigns; of  an earlier reign than queen"Victoria. Occasionally, however, one  does see them, but the rare specimens to be met with are coins  which have been in some way  hoarded and kept out of regular  circulation. They are never reissued once they reach the clutches  of the mint.  The silver and copper coinage is  not withdrawn in this way. It  never is equivalent intrinsically to  its facie value, and consequently is  allowed to wear itself out until useless for the purposes of circulation.  Consequently in the silver coins  which one meets with every day are  to be found coins of George IV. and  William I Vr, and also of the two  obsolete heads of queen Victoria.  In fact there are as many coins of  obsolete form still in circulation as  of the latest issue. Silver coinage  when defaced and useless is re-  melted, but what happens to.the  copper coinage to render the constant issue of new coins a necessity  is a mystery. The design upon the  side of a coin bearing the head of  the sovereign is governed by certain  rules. Upon the reverse it will be  a matter of the personal taste of his  majesty, to whom the proposed designs are submitted and with whom  personally the final selection rests-  IMPERIAL BANK  of  CA.:Nr-A.:D.A.  ���i^ ^��!e^ <5;e^ iS<^ <^U^'  .ESTABLISHED    IN  NELSON    IN   1890.

With regard to the head, his  majesty's personal taste will decide  upon the design and also whether  the crown is to be shown or not.  But the head must be in profile.

George III. looked  to the right, George IV. to tlie left,  William IV., to the right, and queen  Victoria to the left. Consequently  Edward VII. will look to the right.  If one of the earlier Victorian  pennies, of which there are still  many in circulation, be closely  looked at it will be noticed that the  hair is crossed by a wreath of laurel  tied at the back of the head by a  ribbon. How many people know  the meaning of this ? It is found  on the coins of George III. and  George IV., but not on those of  William IV., but it reappears upon  most of those of queen Victoria until the introduction of the veil- and  crownupon the 1887 Jubilee coins.  There is really no compulsion as to  its appearance, but there are circumstances where its use is denied.  It is the laurel wreath .of victory-,  arid it is never supposed to be  placed upon the head of a sovereign  until some signal victory has  occurred durin-r his reign.  The Christian Science Wayj  . "She admitted that she experienced a peaceful, restful feeling  afterward. I think the kissing did  her good. It was part of the treatment I administered to her- as a  Christian Scientist.

J., and  ithe reverend George Tompkins,  Christian Science > healer, of Cam-  den,.differ.'"Sh'e says she.paid $4000  for the treatment and that she is  still deaf and still suffering from  asthma. She has brought suit for  the return of the mony. Vice-  Chancellor Grey is the referee.  "A man made all the trouble for  me," said Dr. Tompkins. "I have  much trouble with the husbands of  the women I treat. I do not kiss  every woman.. I would not care to.-  I make no special charge for the  kisses. They are a part of the general treatment.

When Miss McCnlloch went to him  he admired her ways. He says he  found her child-like and unsophisticated. She says he persuaded her  to give him a power of attorney so  that business cares might not interrupt the process of healing. Then  he ordered her to bow her head and  kissed her. Four months of the  treatment did her no good. The  memory of those kisses, she says, is  all she has left.

IISTEILiSOIN"  STORES   AT  s^.3sriD03sr  wages, and they are not likely to  cause any trouble by going on  strike. The muckers there get  $2.o0 a day and they are agitating,  I believe, for an increase. They  ask $3, which tho managers are not  likely to pay for that class of  work. These men. I believe, belong  to tho Miner*,' Union, but as I understand it, it takes a two-thirds  vote before a strike can be declared. The muckers, are not more  than 25 per cent of those interested,  so. that, unless the miners go in with  them there will be no strike, and I  don't think the miners, who are satisfied with prevailing rates and conditions, will do this. It would be  most unfortunate for Rossland���  unfortunate for the country at  large���should a striko be declared,  for most assuredly the mines would  be   closed   down  tight."  "If the niuckei s as a body were  to cease work,- do you think the  mine owners would consider themselves justifibd in closing down?"  asked the reporter.  "Well,. I should think they  might"," replied Mr. Logan, "provided they had any trouble in securing men to take the place of  those going out. But I do not an-:  ticipate any trouble." The- men  who are. dissatisfied will quit work  and others will take their "place."  FRESH VEGETABLES!  Communications Restored.

AjFfuramerfelt, manager of the  Grairoy7Smelter Company, was in  the city'3yes^erday, and leaves for  Grand~^lforks . today, He reports  that the smelter is working full  blast, turning out (100 tons per day,  and.that ground has been broken  for the additions which are to be.  made, so as to increase the capacity  of the plant. The additions will be  completed by August next, when  the smelter will be in a position to  handle nearly double its present  forced output. Mr. Fluramerfelt  was down at the capital looking  after the interests of those concerned in the bill for the amalgamation of the smelter companies in  the Boundary.  festo recently issued by the Mine  Owners' Association, and jvhich  plainly set forth that'should any  further trouble arise operations  would cease and the mines would  not resume except on a reduced  scale of wages. It was known that  the muckers of Rossland were,  agitating for ah iucrease of pay.  Their present rate is $2.50 per day,  while in Nelson and other camps  throughout the Kootenays the  ruling price paid for such work is  $3. However", the rumor proved  groundless. The Tribune tele  graphed to * its Rossland correspondent on the subject: and received the following reply:  "Mines here are all running and  every indication is that they will  con ti nue to do so. There have been  rumbrs^bfipending "strike, but it is  thought it has all blown over."   ,  Last night on the arrival of the  train from Rossland, a Teibunk .reporter interviewed M.. D. Logan,  one ot the delegates to Ottawa, on  the point, and this gentleman confirmed the above telegram.
