C, TUESDAY MORNING,  APRIL 16, 1901  PRICE FIVE CENTS  POWERS INSIST ON PAYMENT  WILL    NOT    REDUCE    DEMANDS  UPON CHINA.  French Version of the Puzzle Has it  that Russia and Japan Have  an Understanding.  Paris, April 15.���The correspondent here of the Associated  Press is informed from a trustworthy source that the outlook for  an early settlement of the Chinese  indemnity question is less promising than a week ago. The negotiations between the powers bring out  conflicting ideas and interests, and  are likely to be very protracted.  The proposition of the United  States to limit the total indemnity  to $200,000,000 is the only one under discussion, and is not regarded  with favor by more than one government. The others consider the  suiu too small, aud are disinclined  to reduce their claims to the figures  the United States desires.  A Washington dispatch published  in London affirming that the United  States proposes that the^ indemnity  be divided between the powers in  proportion to the number of troops  which participated in the relief of  legations at Pekin is regarded as incorrect. No such proposal has  reached the French government,  which considers that the entire expense incurred as a result of the  whole operations carried out must  be taken as the basis for indemnity.  " It is believed that the claims of  individuals will be first presented  and paid. This matter will be expedited as much as possible in order  to allow an early resumption of_  commerce and work on other  foreign enterprises. Nothing'is  shown here of, the-reported inten-t  "tion" of the emperor to" return' to"  Pekin without the dowager em-  press, and no faith is placed here in  the reported hostility between  Russia aud Japan. French information indicates that concilia;  tory" negotiations are . proceeding  between these two countries, with  the prospect of a thorough understanding regarding the position of  both towards Manchuria and Korea.  Movement.of U. S. Troops.  San Francisco, 'April 15.���The  transport Thouias, which arrived  last night, brought back' from tho  Philippines the firstand^ third battalions of the 35th volunteer regiment, consisting of 29 officers and  533 men, all of the 28th volunteer  regiment, comprising 43 officers and  1035 men. The remainder of the  35th regiment is on the transport  Rosecrans, due here in a few days.  The Lawton left Nagasaki ahead  -of-the Thdmasrand-is-expected~to"  reach San Francisco today.

An Art Gallery for Prague.  ��� Vienna, - April 15. ��� Emperor  Francis Joseph has fulfilled the loug  cherished desire of tlie population  of Bohemia by ordering the establishment at Prague of, a modern national art gallery, towards the  founding of which he himself has  donated 2,000,000'crowns. In a letter announcing the fact, his majesty expresses the hope that he��  may succeed in; establishing peace  in the land through the conciliating powers of. art;*- He has also  created eight new-peers, all men of  letters, representatives of the  learned and artistic professions.  The list includes in addition to An-  tonin Dovrak, the Bohemian composer, Yarostav Vrehliczky, the  Czech poet, and professor Gampers,  of the university of Vienna, the  translator of the works-of John  Stuart Mills.  Venezuela Wants a Loan. -  New York, April 15.���In the  course of a special article on the  eituatiou in Venezuela, a correspondent of the Tribune says : The  Venezuelan government is trying  to negotiate a loan of $30,000,000 in  Jfew York, and the matter is now  being considered by one of the well-  known life insurance companies.  Notwithstanding the -government  Venezuela ha9 had much of the  time for the last fifteen years, the  nation's receipts always exceed its  expenditure, and the government  can pay the interest on all its debts  if it so desires with perfect ease.  Ayall, the leader of the campaign  against the New York and Bermuda Asphalt Company, has' been  nominated vice-president of the  republic.  OFFICIAL   CIRCUMLOCUTION  -And the Government Creameries.  A local wholesaljBfirm wrote to the  minister of i&^M&%Zf3miV;.ra,  could not have an opportunity of  handling a share of the product of  the government creameries of the  Northwest territories. Several  weeks having elapsed without any  acknowledgment of the communication, the firm again wrote the  department, and received the somewhat unsatisfactory reply that  their first letter had not reached its  destination. Another .copy of the  original document was then for-  waided and only yesterday was  this acknowledged, through the  commissioner of agriculture and  dairying. This official conveyed  the intelligence that there was no  butter available, in September last,  according to the* superintendent of  the dairy at Calgary, and that  "when we have butter to offer, we  are glad to sell it to whatever firm  will give the best price." The firm  in question are anxious to make a  bid on 'the product of the creameries,  but have not been afforded, an  opportunity of so doing. They contend that at the time they were-  apprised that there was no .-butter,-  available, the article was beiugi  supplied   freely   by anotjier-^firm,'  j and they reasonably think:, tbat^  they should be in a positioiT.tb- -geitf  the butter, providedtheir  price; is'  ' as good or better,thanVthatflaid by_  KITCHENER   IS   SATISFIED  WITH THE PROGRESS   HIS   MEN  ARE NOW MAKING.  His Army Now Includes 250,000 Efficient Troops, of Whom 60.000  are Well Mounted.  The Chinese and'Public Health; *  A Chinaman was'brought up "at  the police court yesterday morning  and charged with keeping unsani-  taiy premises, thereby endangering  public health. This particular  Chinaman herds with a number of  his fellows in a building at the rear  of Riblet's iron works, and uses the  lot as a dumping ground for all  sorts of refuse matter. There is no  drainage, so that a stagnant pool of  serai-liquid matter has accumulated.  The case has been frequently reported upon, but not until yesterday were steps taken to have the  nuisance abated. Eight days were  allowed the offenders to clear  the place and connect with the  sewer. A closer inspection of  Chinese premises would be in the  public interest.  London, Apiil 10.���The British  newspapers and magazines commenting on the alternating periods  of.,hope and apprehension which  characteriz6 the later, stages of the  South African campaign, compare  these^with the later stages of the  American war of independence, as  though to emphasize these fluctuations. While the letters of responsible correspondents in Pretoria  depict the situation in a rather despairing mood, the Pretoria representative of the Daily Mail sends  today a dispatch of the most hopeful character. "The next six  weeks," he says, will see a resumption of active campaigning. Lord  Kitchener will renew his sweeping  movements. He has an army of  250,000 efficient troops, including  60,000 mounted men, with a good  supply of .horses, '40,000 - having  been Secured in Cape Colony alone.

P., setting forth that nothing  definite has been done,at Ottawa as  to the drill shed 'which is to be  built at Nelson... . -The plans and  drawings are all ready, but Mr.  Galliher cannot get any positive  information as to when building  operations will begin. The militia  department contemplates some important changes which causes them  to defer action for the present. ..'..'  Placer Digging oh Forty-nine Creek.  A party of eight Chinamen yesterday started up Forty-nine creek  well supplied for a season's work.  They are the first batch of almond-  eyed gold seekers to strike the creek  this year. There is more or less  placer work done on the creek  every "year by Chinese, but what  they make out of it is of course a  secret which they jealously guard.  Last season a few of them are said  to have done well ou Hall creek  with the pan.  Banquet to Captain Troup.  ���  Captain Troup, who for some'  years has been, superintendent of  the steamship service of the C. P. R.  at Nelson, will be banqueted by his  friends tonight and made the recipient of some tangible proof of the  esteem in which he is held by the  merchants of this city. The captain was recently transferred to the  coast and is merely paying Nelson  a flying visit to settle his private  affairs here. His friends are availing themselves of this opportunity  to g'ive him a hearty send-off.  Passed Accounts and Adjourned.  Alderman Hamilton presided  over a meeting of the city council  last night, aldermen Patterson,  Madden," Irving and -Gillet being  also in attendance. . The report of.  tfitTfinance committee was read and  adopted. It recommended payments amounting to $2703 and a  pay roll of $1010. This was the  only business transacted and the  meeting adjourned till tomorrow  evening at 8 o'clock.  Busy Times at Silverton.  J. R. Roberts was in from Silver-  ton yesterday, and reports a busy  time in the neat little town by the  lake. The Emily Edith, Hewett,  and Vancouver mines are all working, with every prospect of the  Bosun starting up in the near  future. Some work is xalso being  done on the Lone Star and Echo.  The Bosun, at New Denver, has reT  sumed operations, and is shipping  ore steadily.  The Street SprinUer at Work.'  The street sprinkler made its  first appearance for the season yesterday. Since the warm weather  set in the merchants along Baker  street have had ample grounds for  complaint, the clouds of dust doing  much damage to stock. They have  been using hose to relieve the situation, but this, it is hoped, will no necessary.  Understands Hill Competition. .  Lardeau Eagle.  John Houston has simply found  out that it is not "competitive"  railways we want, but railways  built, owned . and operated by the  people.   John Houston is right.  An Engine Jumped the Track.  C. P. R. engine No. 048 jumped  the track yesterday a few yards  from the point where the shunting  engine came to grief a few* days  ago. This is evidently a bad spot  on the road, as it has been the scene  of several similar accidents of late.  Iu the present instance the road  was cleared in a couple of hours  aud the engine again placed on the  rails.    Granite From Roberts' Quarry.  A splendid block of granite from  Roberts' quarry, a couple of miles  east of Nelaon,was yesterday added  to the collection of local building  material in the office of architect  Macdonald. The granite is easily  worked and as it carries a big percentage of iron it .makes a'beautiful  building stone. This is the material chiefly used in the C. P. R.  bridge at Robson.

A Necessary Precaution  A couple of members of the city  fire brigade, with Babcock chemicals, were last night on duty at the  opera house, ready for action should  fire break out while the house was  filled. Fortunately their active  services were not called into requisition, but their presence had the  effect of making the audience feel  a certain sense of safety.  CHINESE MINISTER KICKING  COUNTRY'S    TRADE    SUFfBRING  FROM DELAYS.  China's Expenses in Connection With  the Recent Uprising Are Placed  at Over $60,000,000.  .Washington, April 15.���The Chinese minister has returned from Atlantic City and was at the state department today in conference with  secretary Hay   ou   the   status of  negotiations at Pekin.   The' minister is sdmewhat concerned over the  delay in bringing about a final adjustment and also on the current  reports   that the   indemnity   will  reach a very large figure which he  bears will be beyond the ability of  China to meet.   When seen at the.  legation during the day,  minister  Wu said in response to inquiries on'  these subjects: "We'have been accustomed to hear  that  China was^  very slow, but -in this case many  weeks   and months are going by  without any delay attributable to  China so far as I have-heard, and  yet without definite prospects of  bringing tlie negotiations'.toaclose.  This unsettled condition is very injurious to China, but the commerce  of   all the commercial nations of  Europe, as well as American is injuriously affected by the present  uncertainty   of conditions in   the  East.    What we need in the commercial world is stability and some  definite understanding of what the  conditions   are  to be.   As to. the  question of indemnities, I receive  very little direct information.    But  ;i have'regretted to.see from  some  of the published  report's "/'that the  total of indemnities; is "reaching a  very, large sum. ��� China's own losses-,  will reach $60,000,000* iri" aggregate  therefore China Will be shouldering  aifeurdbn ;i^i^M|safe;^��'parti0ns,v.  and "this wiirc^'e'afi^iP-'ffiV'^nc^;!  try has passed through a most" try-*  ing experience."

Taffy for General Chaffee.  ��� PEKiN.April 15.���Li Hung Chang  has applied to general Chaffee to  leave behind when he departs captain Tilson and a sufficient number  of men to police the Chinese city,  as the Chinese fear the district will  * not be well looked after when controlled by other foreigner's.

All the public  buildings are occupied by the  troops; The. streets are patrolled  by Cossacks, and assemblages are  forbidden. These conditions result  from a fear bf the renewal of the  student riots.  Sharper Defrauds Banks.  Toronto, April 15.���The police  here would like to get their 'hands  on George Winston, tvh'ri' said he  came from St. John, New Brunswick- Winston made small deposits  in the Bank of Commerce and the  Imperial Bank. Then he'drew out  checks on botli for a portion of his  deposit, and in each case went to  the bank and had them endorsed as  good.' A $10 check on the Imperial  Bank he then raised to S24o5and a  $20 check on the Bank of Commerce  .was'raised to $2900. Both checks  were presented at the bank and  cashed after which Winston disappeared. The bank officials can  only give a faulty, description of  his appearance. Winston attempted  to work the same game on the Bank  of Nova .Scotia, but a demand for  identification was made and he  never came back.

Roderick Robertson should seek at the present time  to create a division in the ranks of  ,the delegation now at Ottawa for  the   purpose  of   urging  upon  the  federal government  the necessity,  of bonusing the output of a silver-  lead refinery./ For many months it  has been apparent that the lead  smelting industry of Kootenay has  been at ��� the mercy of the United  States  lead  trust,   which  through  its domination of Kootenay smelters controlled the silver-lead mines  of the district as well.   Mining and  smelting are inseparably associated,  and after carefully considering the  condition which  confronted them  -the   people   of   Kootenay  decided  that the best  way out of present  difficulties   would    be   to   secure  a    bonus     upon     the      product  of     refined     lead      sufficient     to  enable the . Canadian,   smelters ' to  operate independent of the foreign  trusts This,' it was explained, would  assist the silver-lead mine-owners,  as well as the smelters and refineries, since it would ensure them a  competitive market for their ores,  instead of a market in which the  TJnifcecTStates lead trust would.fix  their prices, which was inevitable  in view of the probable forced suspension of the Canadian smelters.  This apparently was   satisfactory  to everyone save J.Roderick Robertson, who was   given  no place on  the delegation.    lie contends that  everyone else is wrong and that he  is right.  The government assistance  in   his   opinion should  go to the  jnines, in which he is interested, in-  steacfof to sinelters and~~refiueries  in whicli he has no interest,  and he forthwith constituted himself a sort of minority delegation aud posted off to Ottawa  to mold the genuine delegates  aud the members of the government to his way of thinking. The  unfortunate thing is that there  should be any division upon a  matter fraught with such great  importance to the people of Kootenay. There is always more or less  difficulty in securing such concessions  as Kootenay now requires from the  federal government, and these  difficulties will,now* be increased  by J. Roderick's presence in Ottawa.  This will not be occasioned by any  arguments he can advance in support of his contention, but simply  .''beca'use his presence introduces dis-  njC^rd into the delegation, and  furnishes the ministers with an  excuse for delay���something which  ' maybe well nigh fatal to Kootenay  lead smelting interests. Taken all  in all it is to be regretted that the  refinery delegation could not get  away to Ottawa without Kootenay's  Jonah. y^  ' Prominent mining engineers are  a great deal like prominent mine-  owners;we know of���they secure  their prominence through absurd  talk in newspaper interviews. A  '���prominent" mining engineer has  been unearthed who declares that  ���''Joe" Martin's bill legalizing cham  perty will do the province much-  harm with English investors. This  is a new source of danger. If the  men who presume to speak for  them are to be believed the English  investors whom British Columbia  requires so' badly are opposed to  paying fair wages to the men employed in their mines, opposed to  any legislation limiting the number  of. hours which shall constitute a  day's work, opposed to the payment  of any taxes to the government,  and opposed to-the legalizing of a  practice which has been followed in  British Columbia since the inception of mining. Evidently British  Columbia cannot hope to secure  English investors until it will consent to permit them to make the  terms under which they will carry  ���on mining, and incidentally- give  them power to frame the laws under which the people of the province in which their mines are situated shall live. ���      ���  The organ's of the East Kootenay  coal, railway and smelter. combine  are now- directing their' abuse "at  ministers Blair and Tarte; because  they refuse to grant.the Crow's.  Nest Southern ' railway charter  without any restrictions' whatever.  They assert that the combine has  never given any evidence of a disposition to treat Canadian concerns  unfairly; but they altogether  ignore the fact that so far the combine has refused to give any satisfactory guarantee- that they will  treat Canadian concerns fairly after  their charter is granted.  Vancouver must be full of dead-  beats. It must. be so or the grocers of that city could never show  a black list of 800 persons. These  800 names do not represent all of  those whom the grocers find~diffi~  culty in collecting accounts from.  It is made up solely of those who  could pay, but who won't. The  figures are interesting. The 800  dead beats represent as ' many  household. This is possibly the  heaviest percentage of dishonest  people in Canada.  Victoria has a wash-house bylaw, under which it is hoped the  Chinese wash-houses will be forced  outside the corporation' limits. This  bylaw makes it illegal to sprinkle  clothes by spraying water from the  mouth. It also provides that wash-  houses shall have cement on brick  floors, must be 25 feet from the  street line, and must be ten feet  away from any other building. By  the same method Nelson might rid  itself of many Chinese wash-house  nuisances.  That the officers of the Rossland  Miners' Union are responsible for  all the friction in that camp is not  the opinion of Hon. C. H. Mackintosh. In the course of a recent  interview he gives -some of the  camp's domineering mine managers  a shaking up, and adds that from  their talk a practical observer  would suspect that a strike would  suit their payrolls.  Manager Cronin of the St.  Eugene mine says his company's  shutdown has been caused by the"  price of lead.   For the first three  months of the year the St. Eugene  declared a dividend of ��105,000, or  at the rate of 12 per cent upon the  par value of the company's stock.

THIRD  AVENUE,   ROSSLAND.  Staking Placer Ground.  Greenwood, April 15.���[Special  to The Tribune.]���During the  past  few days Rock creek and its tributary streams have once   more become the mecca for placer gold hunters in search of claims.   The excitement is principally due to operations of a local company that lias  acquired leases and is now working  below White's- bar on this creek.  Within   two   weeks the company  will commence "booming," and a  profitable clean-up is anticipated.  Tn consequence placer land along  adjacent ' creeks   is   being' staked  rapidly,     especially   along   Baker  creek, the-south fork of Rock creek  where' pay dirt 'is found.     Alex.  Broomfi'eld,   Bart 'Ingraham   and  others liave'acquired leases on the  former'creek,'and'A.  D. Sykes, J.  G. Billings/C.5 H'.  Fair  and Sproat  have recorded -on :'the south fork.  Since'^its'"discovery   in the early  sixties?; Rock creek placer diggings,  under most primitive methods, are  reported.' to have yielded over a  quarter of a million ih gold. Miners  are apparently well satisfied that if  bed-rock can be reached much more  will   be   discovered;     During   the  summer   extensive   operations   by  "booming"creeks will.beprosecuted.  On Baker'creek returning prospectors   say there is much rich dirt  that will yield handsomely.   Placer  mining is also in full swing below  the fa.lls on Boundary creek .where  sluicing   is   being carried on and  good results are looked for.  Considering Freight Sates.
