 Mineral Production of British Columbia in 1900
Mineral Production of Kootenay Iq 1900
There Is No Difference Between Britain
and Germany Over the  Manchuria Convention.
New York, April 14.—In a despatch dated London, I. N. Ford,
correspondent of the New York
Tribune, says: "The Washington reports that the state department intends to revive negotiations for a
revision of the Clayton-Bulwer
treaty are not discussed by the London press. Nothing is known
about the matter at the American
embassy, and there is no official at
the foreign office who is authorized
to discuss the subject. There are
- at least two facts that can be stated
with confidence. First.—That the
foreign office before, the Hay-Pauncefote treaty was negotiated, was
anxious to make concessions which
would be accepted by the senate
and that the convention was supposed to embody what the American government wanted: and
what the senate would sanction.
Second.—That lord Lansdowne was
supported by the cabinet without
dissent, and while the convention
in its original form had been
negotiated in a spirit of neighborly
accomodation and good will, there
was not the slightest disposition on
the part of any member of the
government to discuss the alteration
made by the senate. The inference
which may be drawn from, these
facts is that the foreign office will
take up the subject again in a
friendly spirit, ^whenever it can be
assured that the leaders of the
seriate arid the state department
are in agreement • respecting -the
. <form q,od nature,of the -concession
"desired;by' the' United' States -.for,
the purpose of facilitating construction of the -.canal.-.*.--'
There is no. ground for the belief
that the foreign oflice here and in
Berlin have been estranged by differences of interpretation respecting the bearings of the Anglo-German agreement upon the Manchurian convention. If the Nankin
viceroy has received from the British government, as reported, an appreciative letter respecting liis opposition to the Manchurian convention, it has been because it was considered expedient to compliment
him, and not because there has been
any difference of views with Germany. An experienced diplomat
has told me that, while England
and other powers are under obliga-c
tions to the patriotic viceroys for
saving the situation, it is dangerous to offer them ostentatious sup-
in China before the Boxer rising.
They are even more obnoxious after
the temples have been looted and
when indemnity claims are pressed
by garrisons in occupation of the
capita], The viceroys who have
thwarted the intrigues of Russia
will be embarrassed and discredited
if they are thanked or patronized
by European powers.
Colonel Harry McCalmont, popular alike among turfmen, yachtsmen and members of parliament,
arrived in London from South
Africa, where he has been serving
with the Warwickshire militia. He
will be warmly welcomed at Newmarket and in many London clubs.
The fact that 1500 British soldiers have been besieged over
three months without anybody's
knowing anything about it is
striking proof of the utter inadequacy of the news service in South
Africa.^ ■
The King Is Politic.
London, April 14.—The king's
toleration in making a .. new precedence for a special audience for a
Roman Catholic delegation, has
tended to deaden agitation for the
revision of the coronation oath. It
is not improbable that the Roman
Catholic cathedral at Westminster
may be finished in time for the consecration in coronation year, although an immense amount of difficult work in the ornamentation of
the interior will be required.
Can't Disturb the Old Man.
London, April 14.—Legal obstacles will undoubtedly prevent
the exhumation of the body of sir
Francis Cook, despite the desire of
Jady Cook to resort to that method
of disposing of rumors against herself. While the.home secretary has
not officially refused her request, he
has intimated that there must be
more than rumor on which to grant
a permit for the exhumation of the
body in face of< .the evidence of
physicians and others of sir Francis'
natural 'demise. In view of the
rumorsLthat lady. Cook, -owing to
alleged occurrences there, was
unwilling to visit her former home
at $i£h\uond,' she has decided to
The Nelson BIX-i jmpany.
Twelve new new recruits have
been enrolled in the Nelson Rifle
Company anil the prospects of a
good season's tv ork are bright. The
company; hasj-always enjoyed a dis-'
tinguished reputation for efficiency,
arid it is; the desire of local militiamen that this shall be maintained.
Many of the older members joined
the regular forces by volunteering
for active service in South Africa,
which reduced the establishment to
less than twenty active . members,
but withfthe recent additions and
the prospects of more to follow, it
is expected: that the full strengths
of forty-fiyie rank and file will soon
be attained. The rifle ranges are
to be put in order at once and regular practice resumed. Nothiug
definite is yet known as to when
the Jong-promised drill-shed is to
be started.  ,   '__
3      The-Highlander at Work,
Work has been resumed at the
Highlanderinihe Ainsworth camp,
after a shutdown of some months.
Last year the property-was thoroughly prospected by means of the
diamond drill} so that the management know exactly what there is
in the mine and where to find it.
After boring in several places" and
taking samples and notes of the
Avork, Maxwell Stevenson went east
with his data, and has just
returned with the news that his
principals are fully satisfied with
the showing, and have given instructions that development, be
proceeded, with on a very liberal
rscale., ^Tliereiis. much- to" warrant
;the belief that the property will
turn out agreat ( one and give an
impetusto mining in this old camp.
Not as Reported in The Tribune.
The family of Mr. and Mrs.
Frederick Hodge is not as reported
in The Tribune of Saturday. They
have eight children and have been
married twelve years. Of ■ the
eight four are twins, the flrst being
born in July, 1898, and the second
in April, 1900. This is a record
that Mr. and Mrs. Hodge need not
be ashamed of, but it is not as good
a one as is that of Mr. and Mrs.
John Hamblin, foreman of the
bookbinding department of The
Tribune. Mr. and Mrs. Hamblin
have been married three years, and
they have three children, two of
the three being twins.
Rather Expensive Fumigation.
===DrsrHalI=andi Rose are~suing^the~~
city for $365 to recoup them for
damage done in the fumigation of
their offices in the K.-W.-C. block.
A smallpox, patient in the early
stages of the disease, paid the doctors a visit and the, case was immediately reported to the medical
health officer. The sufferer was
taken to the pest house and the
doctors' offices thoroughly fumi-.
gated with sulphur. The fumes in:
jured the furnishings of "the rooms,
and the surgical instruments to the
extent claimed, hence the action.
Still in Quarantine.
Hugh McDermott, foreman at the
Nelson Saw «fc Planing Mills is still
quarantined at Bonner's Ferry. He
was on a business trip, and as he is
said to have passed through certain
districts where smallpox exists, the
health officer at the ferry quarantined Hugh for the safety of the
public. The five ■ Nelson men at
Cranbrook who are held as suspects
in the Cosmopolitan hotel are
reported to be enjoying themselves
well under the circumstances. They
are daily in receipt of telegrams
from their Nelson friends offering
The Latest Fish Storv Told.
The Miner yesterday morning had
a fish story. It told of a scarcity
of fish at the Junction, and a certain bundle of netting which a local
mau is said to have discovered in a
Toronto establishment recently,
labelled "Nelson* B: Ci" According
to the Miner this netting is intended
for use in the pools at the Junction.
But the fact is that the netting in
question was ordered by the Nelsou
Tennis Club, to be. used in their j
courts. 1
Report Comes From Paris That an Attempt Was Made to Stab Paul
Bloemfontein, April 14—It is
reported that the health of former
president Steyn, of the Orange Free
State has broken down. It is also
said * that he has advised all the
Boers on commando to surrender
Paris, Apiil 15.—L'Estafette publishes a report that an attempt was
made to stab'Mr. Kruger.
Capetown, April 14.—There is no
increase in the progress of the bubonic plague here, although there
is an average of five cases daily.
Since the outbreak 393 cases .have
been 'officially reported, of which
152 have proved fatal.
Paris'," April 14.—"Among the
Boer prisoners who recently arrived in Lisbon, from Lorenzo Marquez," says a special dispatch from
the Portuguese capital, "was a
young American by the name of
Randolph Martinson, who described
himself as the son of the president
of the Missouri, Kansas & Texas
railroad. He was captured by the
.British.'but-;: released as an American on promising not to fight
again. -Subsequently he was arrested in Lorenzo Marquez at
the request of the British
authorities under suspicion of
being a Boer agent. Mr. Martinson,
on being brought here secured his
release through the American
charge d'affaires, and his father
sent' money to pay his passage
home., According to his representations, he was aide de camp to
colonel John Blake, commander of
the Irish brigade."
London, April 14.—A dispatch to
the Daily Mail, from Lorenzo
Marquez, said that a Mr. Martinson,
who was said to have resigned a
post in the United States army to
join the Boer forces, had beenx,
sloped for Lisbon ou the Portsmouth transport Zaiere, which
carried 103 Boer families, after; he
had made an ineffectual attempt to
obtain consular protection.
The Census Commissioners.
There wjas,a meetings of the census commissioners in Nelson ion
Saturday, at which the work- now
in progress" was discussed. From
every section the enumeration was
reported as going on satisfactorily.
In East Kootenay one of the enumerators is quarantined as a smallpox suspect, which somewhat upsets the program of the commissioner for that division. Among
other—matters—discussed at the
meeting was the financing of the
job. That circumlocution so characteristic of goyernment officialdom
has delayed the arrival of cash, and
in several instances the commissioners have had to advance money
to their enumerators. Expenses
are heavy, and it was unanimously
decreed a grievance that* those
responsible for the work should
have „to pay put „of their own
pockets sums which the government should have provided.
Mining Records:
The following are the ■ mining
transactions recorded on Saturday:
In consideration of $2500- Frank
Lassey transfers to W. H. Hutchinson a half interest in the Flying
Dutchriiany^a half; interest in the
Phoebus, a quarter in Pilot Knob,
a third in* Mars, a third in the Independence, two-fifths in the Venus,
a third interest in the Boston, two-
fifths in the Sphinx, three-fifths in
the Keystone and Sunny Sun, and
a full interest in the Venus Fraction, on Hall creek. W. S. Doyle
transfers to R; A. SHutchinson his
interest " in the Borinier mineral
claim on Hall creek. Certificates of
work were granted to Andrew
Bostard on the Lawton, and to
William McDonald on the Johannesburg and Transvaal. An affidavit
was filed in the case of the Rover
mineral claini advertising a defaulting partner.
Building at the Hume Addition.
Work was begun on Saturday on
a two-story brick building on the
site which for years supported the
big board sign announcing "Lots ■
for Sale iu the Hume Addition."
The building will be barely outside 1
the city limits, and will be but
another of the large ones run up in
this district of late. < If that old
sign-bo»rd could but speak it would
tell an interesting tale of the growth
of Nelson. For years it stood almost
alone, to be looked at by the
teamsters as they drove to arid
from the old Nelson & Fort Sheppard railway depot, or to be 'used
as a scratching post by the Browsing cattle from the neighboring
ranch. It did service as a sort of
mile-post between Nelson and
Bogustown, and stood the storm'
well. Only once was it known to
be blown down, and on that
occasion it was promptly* put, in
position. Of late, however, buildings have sprung up all around, no
longer do freighters ply to the
depot, and an electric car flies'past
what used to be i a desolate and
uninviting spot.     '•- ' •
Fashionables Are More Interested in
Jack-Pots Than They Are iri
the Collection Plates,
New York, April 14.—Too much
gambling in society, and too few
children, are the twin' evils that
are attracting the attention of the
pastors of fashionable New York
congregations, says the 'Evening
World today. - Many of these ministers are recent' additions to the
religious and fashionable life of New
York, and they declare that the
conditions that they have encountered here appal them. The ministers have been counselling with
each other, exchanging .confidences
and experiences, and trying i to
devise means of correcting the conditions' which they say prevail.
They have'not decided what they
will do, but they will not begin any
public crusade, and they will not
refer to the subjects in sermons.
When a score of ministers who care
for flocks that live up and down
Madison, Fifth West End and
Amsterdam avenues, began to talk
over the subject confidentially they
found that all had the same story
to tell. Gambling among the members of their flocks was entirely too
common/and the play_ wasr often
for extra high stakes. s Many
instances were told showing howl
young men had lost much larger
sums than they could afford, and
had often been compelled to borrow
small sums for railroad . fares I or
temporary expense frorh their hosts.
One of the ministers who attended
the conference says: "It is my personal opinion that a igood- deal of
tlreTnoney'pTifon the plates~insuch-
liberal amounts on Easter Sunday
came easy at the gaming table,; or
if it did not, these.large gifts were
made iu many instances. as balms
to supposed guilty consciences. It
is a very easy form of imaginary
self denial! this giving of:money by
people who have plenty, instead of
personal service and to atone for
dissipation. I am no longer young,
and have seen conditions iu many
cities, but I never" imagined conditions existing anywhere so bad as
were described at our informal talk,
and men who told what they knew
beyond doubt to be true."
A Call From  Cranbrook.
Rev. Havelock Beachman, B. ' A.
of Winnipeg, is a guest, at.' Mrs. W. J
A. McLean's, Victoria street. The
reverend gentleman.has been acting
as lociim teners iri the ■ Episcopal
church at Trail, during the past
four months arid is on his. way ' to
Cranbrook, where he has accepted a
permanent appointment. ; Before
leaving Trail Mr. Beachman was presented with a well-filled purse by
his congregation, and a beautiful
set.of silver communion vessels by
the young men of the church.   ;
The Nelson Gun Club.
The weekly shoot of the: Nelson
Gun Club on Saturday resulted in a
score of 17 for Clarence Goepel, 12
for Pete Nelson and 11 each for
Soren Nelson aud George Tierney.
Each man had 25 birds,- but there
was a fairly stiff breeze blowing
which interfered with the sport.
Several sweepstakes were decided
after good shooting. Among the
new members to put in an appearance were T. M. Ward and Fred
The Chancellor of the. Exchequer and
Joseph Chamberlain 'Running Neck
and Neck for First Place.
London, April 14.—The London
correspondent of the Tiibunei I. N.
Ford, cables the following: The
chancellor of the exchequer' had
made no sign, and the country does
not know whether sugar will be
taxed or corn laws imposed, or a
few simple l sums' in addition be
worked out in the taxation of; in-
comes, tea, tobacco and spirits. ■ It
may be a commonplace budget,
with feeble ''expedients- for widening the area of' taxation, or it may
be the most important budget'since,
the corn laws were repealed. In
any event the political effect of the
budget speech must be consider-,
able. There ' will be a" revival of
Liberalism if imported food be
taxed, whether sugar or corn," and
there will be demoralization on the
government side if the chancellorr
of the exchequer continues ' to
finance the Avar feebly, and fails to
readjust the burdens of direct or
indirect taxation.
There are also personal elements
in   the   political   equation.      The
present cabinet has nominally been
directed by'lord Salisbury, but Mr.
Chamberlain .will be the strongest
force in regula'tirig its policies. '■ 'Sii;
Michael Hicks Beach has ,been? the
only member of the cabinet capable
of offering resistance to the will of
Mr.   Chamberlain.     Treasury. has
been the stronghold of old toryi'sm,
where the secretary for the colonies-
could not   exert   the   pressure} of
superior   political   [capacity.  ' 'Sir
Michael   Hicks • Beacht ,+and : Mr:
Chamberlain have been anti-pathetic
ever since the present government
was formed, and( their divergencies
of  opinion have    widened  during
recent months, while they have remained colleagues with lord  Salisbury as prime minister. It is doubtful if, they can work together when
the arniability  of   Mr.  Balfour  ib
transferred to the upper house; Mr.
Chamberlain cannot lead the commons if sir Michael Hicks-Beach remains at the head of the treasury.
His  .budget    speech    will     be     a
decisive   proof of   the chancellor's
capacity or incapacity,as a ^financier, and will ,have a direct bearing
upon the political  fortunes of  Mr.
Chamberlain.     If   it  exhausts the
patience of the country, the ascendancy of  the masterful will of Mr.
Chamberlain will be complete, and
the way, will   be  opened   for   his
leadership   of   the   commons,   and
_for the revision_of_the tariff-system
in the  early future  on the lines of
imperialism in  the   business  relations  of  the  mother  country and
the colonies.    There will  be a feeling of relief when parliament reassembles   for   the   budget    speech.
Budget gambling, based on rumored
changes in the tariff, has become a
source of serious disturbances. Tea,
tobacco, and spirits have been taken
out of bond in  immense quantities
to forestall increased taxation, and
enough sugar for 18 months' supply
has   been   dumped    into   England
from Hamburg, Boulogne, Antwerp,
aud Rotterdam.
Unless the sugar duties can be
made retroactive, the treasury will
draw little revenue from this source
during the next fiscal year, and if
the chancellor declines to levy them,
the speculative movement of the
importers may involve some business failures. The grocery, ■•'• confectionery, and allied trades, have
been holding meetings to protest
against the taxation of sugar, and
to advocate the inalienable right of
the British workingman to have
cheap marmalade aud jam on his
breakfast table. Income tax-payers
can only stand and wait, when they
have no resource for agitating
against their crushing weight of
direct taxation. The budget speech
will be the signal for a reaction
against the prevailing dullness.
Already there has been a revival of
social activity, for an unusual number of west end weddings have
brought fashionable idlers back to
London. ■<       '
A New Five-inch  Gun.
New York, April 14.—Remarkable results have been attained
with the latest model five-inch gun,
the testing of which is in. progress j
at' the Indian Head proving
grounds, 'according to dispatches
from Washington. ..Rear admiral
O'Neill, chief of ordnance, tias been
informed by lieutenant Strauss, in
charge of the proving grourids, that
the gun had developed a .maximum velocity of 3330 feet a
second,... with less than 17 tons
pressure. This velocity was
given to a 50-pound projectile.
The great superiority of'the new
weapon over the five-inch gun on
the Kearsarge will be understood
when it is known that, the maximum velocity attained with a 50-
pound projectile fired by the latter
is 2050 feet per second. With a 00-
pound shell, a velocity of 2990 feet
a second has been attained with the
latest' model. --The muzzle energy
obtained was 3724 foot,tons. In
the recent trials with the 50-pound
_projee.tiIe^a,.-muzzle energy of 3918
foot_ tons was obtained. Rear admiral O'Neil has determined to use
tlie 00:pouud projectile.
More Than China' Can Pay.
, Washington, April 14.—The last
advices to the state department
from Mr.( Rockhill contain further
details respecting the amount of the
indemnities claimed from China by,
the powers. It appears that' these
claims have been much exaggerated
in some statements, although the
sum total is still farin excess of the
amount of] money it is believed
here that .China can raise. It is the
belief, of the state department that
the total claims should not be
allowed to exceed $150,000,000 or
$200,000^000. According to information received liere the British claim,
so far" 'as, formulated, is
resonable iu amount' as compared "with other'. claims. ' In'
fact theTJriited States /and Japan
represent, in these negotiations, the
moderate element whose desire js
to,, prevent 'the imposition! of
^charges that-shall destroy the Chinese government and result in the
division of the empire.".' , -      * .
" ", Death Before Blindness.,
New York, April.14.—A,World's
special 'from < St.' 'Petersburg, says:'
'A sensational 'tragedy has .caused
intense excitement here. Captain
Hecker of the Imperial Guards suspected professor Herman Dohuberg,
the famous oculist, of attentions to
his wife. Ilecker called on Dohuberg, accused him and gave him
the option of blinding himself for
life or being shot Dohnberg chose
death and Ilecker killed him on the
spot". Hecker's punishment probably will be light. The czar has
a«ked for a special report on the
whole circumstances.
The Bill1 Against China.
Berlin, April 14.—The correspondent • of the Associated Press
hears tonight from an authoritative source that the Chinese indemnities for war expenses, exclusive
of claims of private individuals and
missions, have been fixed as follows: . Russia, 300,000,000 marks
000,000 (about t $05,000,000); Germany, 210,000,000 marks (about
$00,000,000); , England, 90,000,000
marks (about if22,00.0,000). .France
will also present claims for
demnity. of the Italian mission.
An American Jockey, Won.
Cologne, April 15.—In the races
here today the spring' handicap
was won by C. Beit's chestnut filly
Ordennan/., with Hehnorage second,
and Easter Monday third. The
winner was ridden by J. H. (Steets)
Martin, the American jockey.
Lester Reiff, ou Wyvern, ..was
fourth, and Johnny Reiff, on Mara-
brino, was sixth. Their riding
with the short stirrups made a sensation.      .
Decay in Westminster Abbey.
London,' April 14.—Some alarm
has been caused by the fall of au IS
foot pillar "in Westminster Abbey.
The pillar stood in the side chapel,
northeast of the chancel. It fell
with a tremendous crash, was shattered1 into small pieces and damaged
the tomb of. Lord Norreys. Investigation showed that a similar column in the same chapel was very
unsafe. Stejjs have been taken: to
insure stability.
Dawson's Week of Sport.
Victoria, April: 14.—-The sports
of Dawson are arranging a big carnival to take place there commencing July 1st and lasting a week.
There will be horse races, trap
shooting, and, if it can be arranged,
a bout between Sharkey and Slavin.
Charles M. Bowes is coming out to
arrange the attractions. The prizes
offered will be large enough to take
men front the outside to the Klondyke.

The   investigation  of thq  Cook  charges by  tiie  senate ha1:-   Kuoved  the Toronto Globe to renew its agitation for the abolition of  ths  np-  per   chamber.   .The   Globe   argues  that whether there is  or  bus  been  corruption in the matter of  senate  appointments,   the system   of appointment is bad in any case.    As  matters stand the appointment  of  senators is  simply  an  addition  to  the  patronage  of  the  party  that  happens to be in  power,  and it  is  significant to say the least  that  in  the great majority of ciases the men  ���who have been appointed   to  sena-  torships have beeu men  of means.  Iu fact it is impossible of  limited means to accept  a senator-  ship 'noi matter  how  deserving  he  may   be ���' 8f-. the    honor.      While  ;it      may      be      expecting      too  much   co   look   for   the   abolitiou  of the senate, something in the way  " of senate reform  may  be expected.  It would be  possible to limit the  term of appointment,  or it  might  be made an elective body, with di-n-  . tricts so arranged that its members  would   not  be  a duplicate  of the  members returned for the commons,  and in any case the property qualification should be  reduced.    If the  ; Couk charges result in auy of tho-c  thiugs    being     accomplished    the  failure of the Ci-ok senate negotiations will prove  a  bletsing  to  the  Dominion. ^   W. L.

"I  business here," said  "but I came here as  year, and this time  rest. The reports that I' am here  to place steel stock in England and  on the continent is almost too  ridiculous to contradict.

The stock which the United States  Steel Corporation issued in exchange for the various companies it  has taken over ,is in the hands of  the original holders of the stock.  . Vital Statistics of Great Britain.  ... London, April 14.���Some interesting points are found in the  annual report of the registrar general of births, deaths and marriages  for the United Kingdom. In 1899  the marriages reached the highest  number recorded since 1870, aggregating 202,234 or 10.5 per thousand.  There were 37,124 illegimate children born. The deaths mimbered  5S1,799, equal to 1S.3 per thousand,  and there were 2844 suicides. This  is the first year on record that not  a single death from hydrophobia  has been renorted.  fact that most of the English jockeys have adopted the American  style of riding or to the immature  conditions of the American mounts.  One of the interesting results of the  American invasion is the appearance on the turf of a new racing  saddle with sliding stirrups, wliich  is warranted to give a jockey an  American seat without effort on  his part. The stirrup straps work  on much the same principle as the  V-shaped American.siispender fasteners, and the inventer of the new  saddle claims that it automatically  changes the rider's seat from front  to rear, and vice versa, giving all  the advantages of the American  style of riding.  Big Shipping Syndicate Formed.  Seattle, April 14.���Lyman C.  Smith, the millionaire typewriter  man of Syracuse, New York, is the  head of a syndicate of capitalists  which closed a deal for the purchase  of a number of steamships on the  Atlantic coast to be used in the Pacific trade, with Seattle as-the home  port. The syndicate purposes to  build in its own shipyards in this  city a number of sailing vessels  suitable for the "lumber trade: of  the Pacific coast and, China, the  Hawaiian islands and Australia.  In the enterprise $1,000,000, it is  stated, will be immediately invested  and additional capital placed to insure the success of the' syndicate's  operations on a large scale. J. W.

LEFT $10,000 FOR HER DOG  Bequest of Wealthy Recluse,  New York, April 14.���For the  care and maintenance of a little  black and tan dog, which lay at her  feet when she wa,s dying, Miss  Ellen Anne Griffin left $10,000 by  her will. The furnished room in;  which she died in East Eleventh  street was small and plainly furnished, but Dandy Jim, as the dog  is called, wore a jewelled blanket,  the only article in the room indicative of the wealth of the  woman.   ���  Miss Griffin was worth $150,000,  and had for years been a recluse.  Her costliest gown was made of  calico, and she was a familiar figure  in Union Square, where every policeman knew her and her peculiarities.  She was the daughter of Charles  Alexander Griffin, a prominent New  York" lawyer fifty years ago, and  the grand daughter of George  Griffin, at one time the ..leading  criminal lawyer of New York, and  ; a writer of ability. She was born  58 years ago. Her most intimate  friend during her school days was  Ellie Vanderbilt, grand daughter of  commodore Vanderbilt.  -When a young woman Miss  Griffin fell in love with a cousin.  Her parents would not permit her  to marry him.' Her grief over this, r  which was great, was intensified by  the death of the young man not  long after. The death of her  mother led her finally to take to  the room near Union Square. She  never again saw any of her old  friends, her only companions being  Dandy Jim and a canary bird.  Last week it became evident that  Miss Griffin's end was approaching.  She sent for a lawyer and made her  will. She appointed him her executor, and left her property to her  nieces and nephews. To Mary Mac-  Giveny, the housekeeper, Miss  Griffin left $10,000 for the maintenance of the dog until the end of his  days. :: ���' : '���"   ��� .''���  Golden's Murder Case.

An Immediate Answer is Demanded in  Order to Check the Russian  Ascendancy.  Pekin, April 14.���Komonra Yu-  tarow, the Japanese minister,  accompanied by geueral Yamatgohi,  the Japanese commander, recently  called upon prince Ching and notified him that the return of emperor  Kwang Su to Pekin was urgently  desired. Prince Ching was informed  that the emperor's wishes would be  respected by the foreign troops, and  that every courtesy would be  shown him. It was pointed out  to the Chinese plenipotentiaries  that the < emperor's return was  of the'; highest possible importance, as affecting the maintenance of the integrity of the Chinese empire, and that he should  come accompanied by every available soldier, by at least 20,000 men  if possible. These troops, it was  further contended by the Japanese  minister, must be sent into Manchuria,! as the Russians reported  great dssturbances there, and it  was not right that the task of quelling the trouble" should be thrown  upon the shoulders of one nation.  Finally, prince Ching was assured,  that if the 20,000 Chinese troops  could not suppress the disorders in  Manchuria, other powers would  send an international force to cooperate with China, which all the  powers regarded as a friendly  power.  No reply having been received to  this communication, Li Hung  Chang was' today notified to the  same effect, and told that emperor  Kwan Su must give an immediate  answer.
