CM THUESDAY MORNING,  APRIL 18,  1901  PRICE FIYE CENTS  LATEST VICTORIAN REVIEW  WHY THE QUEEN DISLIKED GLADSTONE SO MUCH.  Always    Considered    That  Grand Old Man  Had  Mind of a Jesuit.  Britain's  the  New    York,    April    17. ��� The  Quarterly Review, according to the  London     correspondent     of     the  Tribune,    contains    a    remarkable  article ou queen Victoria, unsigned,  but evidently written from a precise and intimate knowledge, during  a period of fifty years.    It throws  a new light upon many secret passages in the history of the reign,  and   contains   a   series    of   fresh  ancedotes illustrating  the  queen's  characteristic  traits  of   trenchant"  humor   and   racy  talk.      The  explanation   given   of   the   queen's  prejudice against Mr. Gladstone is  that it started in the suspicion that  he gave her too much work  to  do,  until she was, as she puts  it,  dead  beat.     He tried in his eagerness to  press her to do what he considered  to be her work, and  when  she  resented-  it   and   he    renewed    the  attempts, she formed a pertinacious  prejudice against  him  which  was  never removed.     The author states  that it was always an element in  her reticence  with  regard to  Mr.  Gladstone   that   he was too high  church, -and   had' the  mind  of a  Jesuit.     The queen's own attitude  toward religion is discussed judiciously..    As   the  headship  of  the  Anglican  church and  of   Scottish  Presbyterian ism she  considered  to  be a part of business of state craft,  aud did not trouble her  conscience  about it.     Probably the form  of  service   which'  she preferred  was  that of   the Presbyterian church,c  but she was a broad churchwoman,  with no curiosity about creeds. She  liked Roman Catholics much-better  than Anglican ritualists.  Loomis said: "I cannot discuss the  recent diplomatic incident with  Venezuela. I may say, however,  that the preliminary steps towards  a legal- settlement of- -the asphalt  case have been taken' in' the Ven-.  ezuela courts. This is precisely  where our government desii ed the  dispute to go. "We insisted that  the dispute be submitted for adjudication without'prejudice"and carried our point. There was some  feeling at the time of the incident,  but it has subsided and our relations at present are satisfactory.  Minister Loomis does not expect  to return to Venezuela for at least  five months.  MAYOR OPPOSED  METERS  SAYS   THEIR   USE   WOULD  CREASE REVENUE.

St. Paul, April 17.���It was reported yesterday, in what are  usually well informed ' railway  circles, that James J. Hill had disposed of his Baltimore &. Ohio and  Erie stock, aud that the operation  had netted him four million dollars.  The stocks, ifc is said, were bought  by Mr. Hill simply as a speculation.  Wall street, however, at once  jumped to the conclusion that  gigantic "combinations were being  formed, and these stocks were put  np rapidly. Mr. Hill persistently  denied these rumors, aud stated  that the purchase of the stocks  was simply for investment.  Illinois Central Smash.  Woodbine,   Iowa, April  17.  -A  "head-end^eollision^lasfc'night^be^  tween two Illinois Central passen-  -senger trains resulted in the death  of Engineer Meinzer,the probably  fatal injury to another, and the  serious injury of several passengers.  The two passenger trains were under orders to pass here. The east-  bound train was running at full  speed on the main track when the-  westbound train dashed into the  castbound at full speed. Both engines were demolished and a number of cars shattered.  Southern Physician Murdered.  Memphis, April 17.���Dr. H.  Schruggs, junior, who resides at  Aulona, a suburb of this city, was  found sitting upright in his buggy  near his home early today. A bullet hole behind the left ear showed  that he had undoubtedly been  assassinated by some person from  the back of the vehicle as the physician was returning from visiting  a patient. The horse wandered  along the roadway for several hours  before the* crime was discovered.  There is no clue to the murderer.  No Trouble With Venezuela.  New York, April 17.���Frank  R.  to  Loomis, United States minister  Venezuela, who was a passenger ou  the Caracas, from Porto Rico, disembarked this morning. He goes  to Washington this week to report  to the state department and president McKinley. He positively disclaims the authorship of the San  Juan interviews in which he was  made to say some critical things  about president Castro, and avers  that an injustice has been done him  in this respect. To au  JPiess   reporter  Washington, April 17.���Senators  Proctorof Vermont, and Cockrell of  Missouri, held an- important' conference with the president this  morning regarding the situation in  Cuba. Both senators have made  trips to the island since the adjour-"  ment of congress. Senator Cockrell,  as a representative of the political  opposition in the senate, is held in  high esteem by the president, who  was greatly interested today in  listening to his views.  'Senators   Proctor   and   Cockrell  agreed substantially as to the conditions existing on the island  and  they agree as to the outcome of the  .pending negotiations with  Cubans.  Their views   as to the conditions  already have been given to the public.  Senator Cockrell told the president that in his opinion the Cubans  would accept the terms of the Piatt  amendment in thie end.'  After the  commission    appointed    to ..visit  LWashington,understands the situation,   he'thinks there .will'be no  other       alternative        open       to  them. "   The   Cubans,   said    senator   Cockrell,   apparently do    not  fully grasp their status.'   They are  not a government.   They have no  power to treat diplomatically with  the   United   States.   The   present  constitutional convention was called  into being through our agency.   It  only has   power to submit to the  United State9 for approval a plan  or constitution tor a representative  government.   If, we reject it outright the existing status continues.  They can do nothing.   But if the  modifications and conditions which  we propose are adopted, then they  cau proceed to organize a representative   government.. Until   such a  government is organized, the troops  of the United States, in my opinion,  cannot be withdrawn.   I am firmly  ^convincedthatthe'conventionf after  ���ifc hears the report of the commission which it has sent here, will accept the Piatt amendment."  - Grand Order of the Orient.  Nelsou Council No. 1, of the  ���Grand-Order of tlie Orient was organized on Tuesday evening after  the regular-meeting of the Knights  of Pythia"?, when twenty-three pilgrims were" admitted to the _mysteries of the council. The names of  the officers officiating were: J. L.  Porter, grand pasha; J. J. Malone,  grand vizier; L. K. Larsen, past  graud prophet; A. H. Clement?,  grand herald; R. G. Joy, grand  secretary; R. Esterbrook,  treasurer; P. J. Bradley,  wardsman; T. McGuire, .  vidette; J. L. Vanstone, G. A,  An adjourned meeting of the city  council was held last evening, the  mayor presiding and all the members being in attendance.  The report" of the public works  committee was as follows: 1. That  a    six-foot     sidewalk     be     laid  on the east side of Josephine street  from   Mill   to   Latimer,   and   the  necessary grading done;   2.   That  a sum not exceeding $100 be  expended in opening up Hoover street  from Josephine to Cedar street, and  making it passable for teams;   3.  That at 8-inch  sewer be .laid on  Mines road from Kootenay street  westerly to lot 8, block 6, Addition  A; 4. That Mines road from Hoover  to Observatory street be graded at  a cost not exceeding $75;   5.   That  the   water main   be extended' on  Water street to the city limits to  afford water supply to residents'on  Chatham    street    in    the    Hume  Addition; 6. That a sum not exceeding $300 be expended *in grading   Cedar   street   from   Silica  to  Baker street, and in making the  lane in blocks 7, 8 and 18 passable  for teams ; 7. That the ditch on the  south pide of Water. street, near  Willow street, be filled in; 8.  That  Water street, between Cherry and  Park streets, be filled in;   9.   That  the earth abutting on the property  of W. C. McLean, on Ward street,  from the corner of   Silica, be excavated and removed;   10.   That a  rough board enclosure bel erected  for the purpose of a city pound on  the street at the- south - end' corner  of the" recreation grounds; 11. That  a 15-foot sidewalk  be constructed  on the south side  of Baker street  from   Ward   to   Stanley   streets;  12. That notice be given for the removal of the projecting veranda of  the Silver King hotel, Baker street,  and that sixty days' notice be also  given for'the removal of all other  verandas and signs projecting on  Baker street, and which are  contrary to the provisions of the city's  bylaw; 13. That an 8-inch sewer be  .constructed on Railway street from  Baker to Vernon streets.  When the report was read alderman Selous said he would suggest  that all future expenditures for  sidewalks and street improvements  be laid over, so as to give an opportunity of looking .into the finances.  The committee had a report before  them which so far as he could see  showed that the money actually ex>  pended, and~already a~uthonzed~to~  be expended, took up every cent of  .the estimate.. He did-not suggest  that the council should stop   the  tW&ter supply be required for all  premises within the city limits on  the line of the main, (5) Your committee having considered the question as to .the best system of charging for electric light, are of the  opinion 'that the' meter system  should be adopted at as early a  date as practicable.  The first clause of the report was  debated at considerable length.  Alderman Hamilton thought the  suggestion of the committee was  rather a sweeping one. He understood that the heavy wiring was  done on Josephine street, but in  outlying districts where there were,  few wires strung .it, was a public  convenience to have telephonic  communication, .and this would certainly not be provided if the company weke forced to'. vput up poles  to supply a limited service. He  suggested some sort of a compromise- whereby the company  might have the use of the poles in  these districts.     ���    '.,.,  Alderman Irving���And in a year  or so you will have as many wires  there as there are now on Josephine street.  .. The mayor took tlie same view of  the situation as did alderman Hamilton. He did not think the telephone company-was making much  money, and as their service was no  doubt a public convenience he  would not like to see them crowded.  They strung their, wires under'an  understanding, that' they were to  have the use of the poles at a certain rental, arid it looked a trifle  arbitrary now that they had gone  to this expense to order that the  wires be taken : down on short  notice.  Alderman Patterson ��� Their  agreement was that they should  remove the wires, if called upon to  do so, within two' months, and we  are giving theiiffoUr months.  Alderman Irving���And the superintendent says that it costs twice  as much to do * h'is work with the  telephone wires-up;  The mayor���But that would not  .be much. y    ���������  Alderman   Paterson  thought   it  better for the "company to remove  the wire? now thai^jfco.be called  upon -to doso later on-ivtieVr there  'would be more of them strung.  Alderman Selous suggested that  the wires on Josephine street be removed within four months, and  that the matter of arranging time  for the wires in the outlying districts be referred back to the committee. This course waa ultimately  agreed to.  Clause 3  of the report was allowed to stand over, as it would  incur an expenditure of some $400.  Clause   0    was    discarded,    the  mayor   estimating   that  to introduce the meter system would cost  the city $6000 and would be a  loss  of revenue.  Clauses 2 and 4 were adopted.  A letter was read  from James  Neelands of the Office saloou, complaining of the action of the chief  of the fire department in reference  to a chimneyJBre injihe saloon. JThe.  REVISED LIST OF CLAIMS  POWERS MAY BE CONTENT WITH  WHAT CHINA HAS.  Germany Inclined to Favor Dividing a  Lump Sum of $200,000,000 Among  All the Claimants. -  in  as claiming  Prance and  grand  grand  grand  .P.  Mining Records.  The following ��� are the mining  transactions recorded i yesterday :  Certificates of work to Robert Corlett on the Norman, to R. P. Dugan  on the Crown Point, situate on  Forty-nine creek; and to Hank Noll  ou the Spotted Horse and Lone  Star. There was but oue new location recorded���to R. W. Craig for  the Nestor, on the north fork of the  Salmon river. No ..transfers or  sales are entered.  Silverton Has a Fire..  Wot;d was received in Nelson  yesterday of a rather serious fire at  Silverton on Tuesday morning, in  which the townsite block, owned by  the townsite company . was  destroyed. P. E. Everett, bookkeeper at the Emily Edith mine  Associated I was living in the building with his  this morning Mr. I family, and had a narrow escape.  work now in hand, but that no new  expenditures should be incurred for  the present.  The mayor concurred. There was  nothing very pressing in the report.  "In view" of the facts stated by  alderman Selous," added the mayor,  "we will have to get down to the  question of revenue, and stay by it.  We have had a wholesome lesson  in the existing state of our revenue  ���our present difficulty with our  city debentures."  On the suggestion of alderman  Paterson the report was laid over  for oue mouth.,  The fire, water, and light committee reported as follows: (1)  With regard to clause 2 of your  committee's report of the 25 th  March, as to the use of - the, city's  electric light poles by the Kootenay  Lake Telephone Compahyj your  committee adhere to the recommendation made, with the exception  that the company be allowed four  months within which to remove  their wires, etc., from the electric  light poles, and also recommend  that the company be called upon to  pay the rental required by the  resolution of the 20th August last  for the poles which have been used  by them. (2) That a hydrant be  placed near the Nelson Saw & Planing Mills, at a point which may be  considered the most suitable. (3)  That the request of Mr. W. E. Coles  for water service for his house on  lot 18, block 28, addition A, Innes  street, be granted, and the necessary water main extension made.  (4) That connection with the city's  document was ordered to be filed,  without diiscussion.  Alderman Selous, on the part of  the "fire wardens, reported that certain alterations had been made at  the opera house, but that these  were not saitisfaceory. The wardens recommended that, the owners  of the building be notified that their  .license would not be issued and  that they are to have no public entertainments in the house until it  has been put into a safe condition  to the satisfaction of, the city  council.  The mayor said that he had gone  over the building with architect  Ewart and that alterations bad  been made that improved,the safety  of the place, but as yet nothing had  been done to afford proper egress  from the gallery in case of fire.  The- report was unanimously  adopted.  Alderman Selous moved#that the  veraudas and hanging sign, boards  on Baker street be removed within  thirty days and that the owners be  notified accordingly. The motion  carried, alderman Madden alone  voting nay.  Tenders for Hospital Supplies!  A committee of the hospital  board met yesterday and opened  tenders for half-yearly supplies.  Competition was keen iu every department, and the following were  the successful competitors: Groceries, Morrison & Caldwell; drugs,  Canada Drug & Book Company;  bread, R. G. Joy; milk, Praser &  Broderick. The meat contract was  the only one not awarded. There  was no tender. Prices are considered very favorable to the institution.  London,   April  17.���A despatch  to  the Times    from   Berlin   says,  there is considerable indignation in  authoritative circles there over the  statement in the American press  purporting to give on Mr. Rock-  hill's authority the exact sums demanded   from   China.   The statement   is exceedingly   incorrect  representing Germany  $30,000,000 more than  only demands $10,000,000 less than  Russia.'   As a matter" of fact Germany   only   demands   $60JOOO,000,  iPrance $65,000,000 arid Russia $85,-  000,000.    Deep regret is expressed  for these misleading American accounts, which is commented on by  the English press in a spirit' calculated to offend Germany. < There is  great indignation at the suggestion  that Germany claims heavy damage for baron von Kettler's'murder.  It is admitted in authoritative  quarters that there is. much to be  said for the proposal of the United  States to ascertain what China can  afford,   and   then   to   divide   this  among the powers.   This proposal  is "now the subject of .negotiations.  Onthe other hand, if the American  suggestion of $200,000,000 should be  adopted,'few powers could.hope to  recover even what they have actually, expended.   The German  government has refrained*fr.om a definite attitude on the American proposal. - It   is recognized that the  plan has advantages and disadvantages,   and   the   governments will  'wait to^ee^fiow-.-the-^other.-powers1  receive it. ���-'. ���   ' ���',- ���'���"'  serum, as a preventative for the  disease, in view of their supervision  of student Hare's case, are sick in  bed, although there is nothing more  serious than an aggravated condition- resulting from vaccination.  The preventative was applied in  time so that no contagion could  arise. Dr. Hovey, who has the  case of Hare in charge, said last  night: -"Although ten days have  passed since the animal experiments  have been undergone they have not  died.Jbut every view taken in the  microscopical line of investigation  indicates that Hare has bubonic  plague."   ������  FATAL  BOILER   EXPLOSION  MILNER REVIEWS THE WAR  WORK   OF  PACIFICATION   WILL  BE   DIFFICULT.  British   Troops    Must   Denude   the  Country of Supplies in Order  to Starve Out Boers,  A Smith Who Disgraced the Name.  Informations were' yesterday  sworn out against Fred Smith,  charging him with appropriating  moneys which ' did ' not rightfully,  belong to him. A very-'successful  ball was recently given under the  auspices of the Cooks' and Waiters'  Union at Fraternity Hall. Fred  was entrusted with the settling up  of accounts, and was provided with  the necessary funds, but for some  reason yet to be explained the customary receipts have ' not been  handed in, and the officers of the  union have been visited by collectors from the merchants who  supplied the goods. Smith has not  turned up to explain the matter,  and the Cooks' and Waiters' Union  =don't=know=where=to=find=himi=To=  facilitate them in their search a  warrant has been sworn out for the  arrest of the defaulting member.  The Fire Horse Team at Work.  For the past couple of days the  new team of horses for the fire  brigade have been doing service  under the street sprinkler. They  look as if they are tired of the job,  and that having been made  acquainted with the streets^ and  grades of the city, they would like  'to be put in the stalls at the fire  hall and educated for service iu that  department. The heavier animal  of the two has much improved in  appearance since the clippers were  run over him and his dietary  changed from soft to hard stuff.  They are the making of a very good  team.  The Verandas Must Go. J  The city council have,, decided  that within thirty days from date  all verandas on Baker street which  extend over the sidewalk must be  removed at the owner's expense, and  that sign boards which hang more  than two feet out from the main  huilding must go also. This will  remove some of the old landmarks  ���verandas from which for years  all street parades aud celebrations  have been viewed. The Nelson  house, the Madden house and the  Silver King will no longer afford  facilities for band music from on  high. '   Vaccinating for the Plague.  Detroit, April 17.���A special to  the Tribune from Ann Arbor says:  Doctors Dock and Arnet, who were  injected with the bubonic plague  FOUR ARE KILLED AND  SEVEN  FATALLY INJURED.  Purser of the Illfated Steamer Goes In-  -   sane Through Scalding From the  Escaping Steam.  Vancouver, April 17.���[Special  to The Tribune ]���Pour' people are  dead and seven more probably fatally injured as the result of an explosion which took place this afternoon .onthe steamer Pomona which  ���plys on the Fraser river. One of  plates in the rear of the boiler blew  ' out, tearing away the whole front  of the vessel, and knocking into the  water all those in that part of the  steamer.  "  The  accident   happened shortly  after two   o'clock, when the boat  was   in midstream, opposite Fort  Langley, 30 miles from  Vancouver.

Four'Indians  were dreadfully scalded aud only'one of these  is.expeefced to recover.    One Indian  baby is at the point of death.  Captain Seymour and engineer  John Oliver, who owned the bigger  interest in the vessel, were unhurt.  Both Mrs. Morrison and Mrs. Bailey  had left their babies upstairs in the  saloon and had come on deck for  fresh air. The babies are unhurt.  The injured people were brought to  New Westininsfcer.

The Jap wns put off the steamer  Mainlander by the captain three  successive times yesterday, in his  anxiety to get rid of him.  Rev. E. D. McLaren hits received  notice from principal Grant of  Queen's university that the degree  of doctor of divinity has been conferred upon him.  Chinese Still Offenders.  Complaints are numerous as to  the constant appearance of Chinese  on the streets shouldering old oil  cans filled with refuse matter.  They are said to use the stuff for  manuring their vegetable plats, but  it is claimed that it loses much of  its richness in the course of transit  from the point of collection to that  of distribution. The police have  received instructions to abate the  nuisance, and it is hoped they will  give the matter the attention it deserves.  Landing Site for Cable Selected.  Victoria, April 10.���A site has  been selected on Barclay Sound, on  the west coast of Vancouver Island,  for the lauding place of the Pacific  cable. It consists of 100 acres, and  will be laid out as a townsite, and  cottages built for employees. There  is a good harbor off the site, in fact  room for a whole fleet of battleships, and it is well protected.  London, April 17.���The South  African blue book, containing*  recent dispatches from sir Alfred  Milner and other official- corre- ���  spondence, is issued tonight. - Sir  Alfred Milner wires under date of1  March 3rd, requesting permission to  return home at an early date, upon'  leave of absence, for the "purpose of  resting. ^Joseph Chamberlain, the  colonial secretary, replied by; granting this request, but expressing the  government's regret that it should'  be' necessary for sir Alfred to leave  ,South Africa at the present time,  quite recognizing, however, his  need for rest, and mentioning three,  months as the period of leave. - ' -  In a dispatch dated March" Oth,",  sir Alfred reviews the situation iu'  South Africa, in which he saysjhe  had hoped that some definite point'  would have been reached by which -  it would have been possible to sum-'  up that chapter of history containing the war, and forecast ��� the ad-,  ministrative reconstruction which  must succeed it. "But I am recently  forced tothe conclusion that there'.  will be no such dividing line," con-"  tinued sir-Alfred Milner, *'and have -  not the slightest doubt of the ulfci--  mate result, but I foresee that the'  work will' be slower, more difficult,*.  more harassing, and "more- expen-/;  sive than" was at-'orie time expected. *  At any rate, it is idle to wait inuch*'.  longer-in the hope of .being able to���':  j describe a clear and 'clean-cut situ-' - -. f.*^'  iation.7 In s^ite of "the confused[*"��� '^*��  ^character qf-^he present position", IP jC"^  ,l51iink"Tt-'w better "to attempt to de- ~^  scribe, however rightly and inadequately, the state of things as they'  exist today. Tt is no.use denying  that last year was one of retrogres- '���  sion., Seven months ago this colony'  was perfectly quiet as far as the ��  Orange river. The southern half  of the Orange River Colony was  also rapidly settling down, and even:  a considerable portion of the Transvaal, notably the southeastern dis-'  tricts had definitely accepted British authority and rejoice at the opportunity to return to orderly government and the pursuit of peace.  Suddenly the scene was conpletely  changed.  It would be idle to dwell on the  increased losses to the country  caused by the prolongation of the  struggle, and by the form which ifc  has recently assumed. The fact  Ithat^the enemyLare-Uow_broken^up  into a great number of small par-,  ties, leading in every direction, and  our troops are similarly broken up  m their"pursuit, make the area of  actual fighting and consequently of  destruction, much wider than would  be these iu a conflict between equal  numbers operating in large mass.  Moreover, the fight is now mainly  over supplies. The Boers live entirely off the conutry through  which they pass, not only  taking all the food that they  cau lay their hands on, but looting  all the stores of boots, shoes, coffee,  and other things of which they are  in great need. Our forces are compelled to denude the country of  everything movable in order to  frustrate these tactics of tho  enemy. The loss of crops and stock  is the more serious to the Boers "  continues sir Alfred Milner, "than  farm burning, of which so much hus  been heard. I say this, not at all  as an advocate of such destruction.  I am glad to think the measure is  now seldom, if ever, resorted to."  Will Collect Catholic Claims.  Paris, April 17. ��� The foreign  office confirms the dispatch from  Washington, saying France .will  take charge of the Catholic claims  against China, explaining that this  act is in accordance with her  traditional protectorate over the  Catholic missionaries in. the far  east. But France does not intend  to press the claims of other Catholics than the French, unless requested by them to do so. It is expected, however, that all the  Catholics of Latin countries will  place their claims in her hands. The  German missions in Shan Tung rely  on their own governments.

Baker- Street, Nelson.  *  At the meeting of the city council last evening mayor Fletcher opposed the recommendation of the  fire, water and light committee for  the introduction  of   electric light  meters and the charging of meter  rates for light service, instead of  the    present    flat   rates.     Mayor  Fletcher took two objections.to the  committee's recommendations.    His  first was the ��� cost of the meters,  and his second the rather novel objection   that   the introduction   of  the   meters   would    result   iu   a  loss of   revenue.    This   is   hardly  complimentary     to      the     members of the committee making the  recommendation, and it would be  interesting   to   learn   how   mayor  ��� Fletcher arrives  at any such conclusion. '     Tho   experience   of   all  cities which have installed meters  in their electric light or water services has been that excessive waste  of electric current and water has  been prevented, which has resulted  in   doubling the efficiency of the:  plants.   What reason   has   mayor  Fletcher for supposing   that Nelson's experience with meters would  be   different   from that of   every  other city?   The members of the  present council   started   out with  assurances that they would   stop  all   leaks;     why    not    commence  ���with   the   light    service?      It   is  no hardship to oblige users of electric light to pay for such current  as they consume.   It is the policy  pursued  by other cities, and is the  only one which can induce economy  in the lise of light.    So long as Nelson adheres to the present flat rate,  there will be waste of electric current, because  there is no inducement to av_oidjwaste,_and_no���ade^  put up a good string of rival insurance men, who testified that in  their opinion the methods of the  Templars were unsound ; but the  Templars put up fraternal society  assessment insurance men, who  testified with equal cheerfulness  that the Templars' methods were  all right, although it was brought  out in evidence that the Templars  were carrying $9,000,000 insurance  upon an investment of $86,000.  quate means of checking up those  who permit waste. It was doubtless the knowledge of this which  prompted the members of the fire,  "water and light committee to recommend the introduction of meters,  and while their introduction might  be delayed by reason of the condition of the city finances, it savors  very much of trifling with the question to say that the practice of  economy in the use of the city's  limited power for electric light service would result in decreasing the  eity's revenue from such service.  Bv the action of the city council  last evening the Nelson opera house  will be closed until such time as its  owners make alterations which will  render the building comparatively  safe for patrons in event of fire.  The libel suit of the Royal  Templars of Temperance, against  the Economist of Toronto, served  to give the general public some insight into the methods of fraternal  assurance concerns conducted upon  the assessment basis. The libel  suit was the outcome of some comment of the Economist upon the  refusal of the Templars to pay an  endowment policy for $1000, upon  the ground of fraudulent misrepresentation of age; which led the  Economist to say the insurance  branch of the order was a fake concern, and that it buncoed those  -whom it insured.

Saturday inclusive, and on Sunday special services  will be conducted iu the Methodist  church, the sermon in the morning  bei n g preached by" Rev. R. Whit;  tiugton, ex -president of the conference, and iu the evening by Rev.  Dr. Carman, general superintendent  of the Methodist church in Canada.  The pulpits of Sb; Paul's, First  Baptist and Emmanuel Congregational churches will also be supplied morning and evening by  members of the conference. At St.  Paul's Rev. Joseph HaU and Rev.  E. E. Scott will preach morning and  evening respectively. At the First  Baptist the supply will be Rev. R.  B. Lindley and Rev. W. . W. Baer;  and at the Congregational, church  Rev. J. W. Bowering, B. A., and  Rev. J.-F. Betts.  The fifteenth session of theBritish  Columbia conference of the Methodist church will open iu Nelson on  Thursday morning, May, 0. This  gathering will have peculiar significance, in that it will probably be  the first Methodist conference held  in America during the present century, as well as the first British Columbia conference to be held east of  the Cascades, all former conferences  having been held at some point on  the Coast.  A full conference would mean th'e;  attendance of some 125 men, but it,  is not likely that at the approaching session more than 75 will be in:  attendance. Among those who will  be present will be Rev. Dr. Carman,  general superintendent of, the  Methodist church iri Canada, who  will open the conference and preside alternately with the president  "tp'bB electeel upon tlie^tirstTxlay.  The jurisdiction of the British  Columbia conference covers not  only the work among the white  population, but Indian and Chinese  and Japanese missions as well. An  interesting personality in connection with the Japanese mission  work is Rev. Goro Kaburagi, B. A.,  B. S. C, who has charge of the  same. He was a member of the  official clays in Japan, and is a  highly educated and polished citizen of the little island empire. Another interesting member of the  conference is Rev. E. S. Rowe, pastor of the Metropolitan church at  Victoria. Mr. Rowe has made a  deep study of social and .industrial  questions, and during his visit arrangements will be made for him  to address a labor meeting.  ' Tho conference program ;for the  opening day calls for meeting of  the stationing committee, which  from year to year transfers'or con-  firmsjthe pastors of the conference  in tlieir several pastorates. The report of this committee will probably  be available by; Thursday. No  change will be made in the Nelson  station, but several clergymen  throughout the district will be  moved. Ab Rossland RevT G. H.  Morden will be moved. He has a  call to the Queen's Avenue church  at Westminster, and will doubtless  go there. Among the other changes  will be the moving of Rev. J. A.  Wood from Kaslo, and the-moving  of Rev. A. M. Sauford, B. A., from  Sandon, A vacancy will also be  created at Grand Forks, G. J.

There have  been a large number of small  pleasure craft on the lake for the  past few days.  Word was "received in town  yesterday of the death of Mrs. Macdonald at Rossland. The deceased  used to run what is now known as  the Club hotel here some years ago.  "Pete" Emerson, of the Office  saloon, returned to Nelson yesterday after an absence of some months  in California in search, of health.  He declares his constitution is much  improved.  There appears to be a scarcity of  draft horses in Nelsou. Only a few  loads of coal were checked over the  .city weigh scales yesterday, the  reason assigned being that teams  are scarce. A number of horses  have been sent out for railway construction work.  Weighmaster Jackson yesterday  received another letter from his  Regina friend, who is anxious to  build a flour mill in Nelson.    The  writer had not received the communication from the city clerk at  the date of writing Jackson.  Captain Troup, Mrs. and Miss  Troup left last night for the Coast.  A large number of friends were at  the depot to see them off.  No date has as yet been fixed for  the chamber sittings which were to  have been held on Monday morning  last by P. McL. Forin, acting county  court judge.  The police have served- notice  upon several local dealers who are  in the habit of making a too liberal  use of the sidewalk in front of their  premises for the storage and exposure of goods.  The work of timbering up, the  banks of Cottonwood creek within  the city limits continues. Tlie  banks of the stream were being  gradually eaten" iaway by the swift  flowing waters.  A drunk lodged in the lockup last  night during the session of the city  council so disturbed- the proceedings that the mayor and a deputation of aldermen went. down to try  and pacify .him. The man, however, did , not .rise ,.td the occasion,  and indulged in a string of adjectives that shocked the aldermanic  ear and caused his worship to wish  that it was court hour next morning.  CONSECRATED  IN A RIOT  ANTI-RITUALISTIC OUTBREAK IN  A LONDON CHURCH.  John  Kensit Declares the   Bishop of  London Unfit for his Position in  a Protestant Church.  .London, April 17.���The scene iu  aB5W!clmKh=tp3^T=du7in]f=tlurc6ntf  secration of right Rev. Ingram as  bishop of London, - resembled a  political meeting rather than a  religious service. John Kensit, the  anti-ritualist,* ^entered': .an. unexpected protest against the appointment. He spoke for some time in a  loud voice, his remarks causing an  extraordinary uproar, arid :he was  greeted with cheers, hisses and  shouts of "Order!" "Shame!" and  "No popery!" Mr. Kensit accused  Mr. Ingram of being unfaithful to  all his promises when he was consecrated bishop of Stepney, and  that he had helped ltwbreakers,  and had aided cleigymen who in  defiance of the rubric elevated the  host, offered mass and' preached  the confession. He concluded with  saying that he was prepared to appear in the courts and prove that  Dr. Ingram was an unfit person to  hold the position of a bishop of the  Protestant church, owing to his encouragement of Romish practices.  The friends and opponents of Mr.  Kensit became so uproarious that  the vicar-general ordered the clearing of the church. Mr. Ingram  appealed to his friends tp listen  quietly. Eventually the vicar-general overruled the objections, and  theelection of Dr. Ingram was confirmed. The disorder continued,  some hustling occurred outside the  church, and finally Mr. Kensit was  escorted home by a score of policemen and followed by a howling  mob.   Five Years for Robbing Mail.

Dubuque, Iowa, April 17.���In the  presence of princes and high priests  of his church, aud before an  audience that occupied every foot  of space iu St. Raphael's cathedral  aud overflowed into the surrounding streets, archbishop John Joseph  Keane was today invested with the  pallium, the insignia of the high  position he occupies in the Roman  Catholic church. r  The scene was one of great  brilliancy, and the ceremonies  characteristic of the splendor and  magnificence for which the Catholic  church is noted. Cardinal Gibbons  was here, archbishops and bishops  from all parts of the country were  here, and the number .priests present was very great. The attendance of laymen from outside was  large, aud but few states in the  union were unrepresented. It was  a remarkable tribute to archbishop  Keane.  The   ceremonies   opened at   ten  o'clock, with a procession of clergy  and attendants, hi which the cardinal,   archbishops,     bishops   and  priests took part in full vestments  of their rank. Archbishop Keane, of  St.     Louis, - in     full    canonicals,  ascended the altar at 10:30 aud commenced   the   article   of   pontifical  high   mass.     After  mass   cardinal  Gibbons, with imposing ceremony,  conferred the, pallium .upon archbishop   Keane.   Following the investiture archbishop Ireland, of St.  Paul, delivered-the  sermon  of the  day.    He said he regarded the installation as one of the most important   events    in   the   .Catholic  church in recent years,  archbishop  Keane   representing   the   forward  movement in  the  church.     Archbishop Ireland's subject was  "The  church in America", its yesterday and  its tomorrow."..; He said "I,fear not  to   say   that   we   have   today   in  the, United   States.  10,000,000   to  14,000,000 of. Catholics.   I speak of  the number  of  churches, colleges,  schools, convents, hospitals, orphanages and other, institutions of charity, education, and   apostolic   zeal  with    which -the    whole    country   is   covered.    These   are   not  the creations .of the civil state, or  of rich gifts from corporations, but  they are the results of the pennies  of the Catholic people.   Three-quarters of a century, a half century  ago,   anti-Catholic   sentiment was  dominant in the land,.but our rion-  Catholic fellow-citizens were not to  be blamed.   They had not known  Catholics   as   Catholic,   and   they  treated   them   according  to what  they believed of them.   But today  in Ameiica the  reign of ill feeling  and animosity has   passed   away.  In America Catholic and non-Cath-  -olics=differ=froni==one=anotheiMm=  creeds and spiritual allegiance;.but  as true Americans they respect one  another, aud accord to one another  their civil and  social freedom, all  working together in peace and harmony for the greater weal of society and of country.  "From yonder pallium has come  ray inspiration. In words that  burn with deepest feeling and most  earnest action, the pallium that  touches the shoulders of John  Joseph Keane speaks to me, as it  does to my hearers, of church aud  of country, of sacred love for one  and the other, of intelligent devotion to the weal of one and of the  other. Friends'of my priestly and  episcopal year, my fellow soldiers,  and my leader in all causes that we  believe to be serviceable- to church  and to country, I will this day speak  in the name of the church and of  America, and say that the one and  the other rejoice exceedingly that  you are sealed iii the full panbly of  arch-episcopal dignity and authority upon Dubuque's cathedral chair.  The church of America and Americans are sure that from Dubuque  will go forth henceforward, in  sweetness and power, a mighty influence for good in aid of religion  and of patriotism."
