C, SATURDAY CORNING,  APRIL 20,  1901  ^M.  PRICE FIVE CENTS  NELSON WHOLESALE TRADE  SHIPMENTS DURING  THE WEEK  NUMEROUS,   BUT  SMALL.  n  Wholesalers and Retailers do a Conservative Business, and Look for  Better Times in Kootenay.  The   wholesale   business   during  the past week  was  anything  but  brisk,    yet     merchants     take     a  philosophical view of the situation,  and say that while things are dull  a spirit of caution is commendable.  Orders as a rule aro short, but they  are numerous, as will be seen from  the   appended   list   of   shipments  since Monday last.     While there is  not   that   exaggerated   degree   of  prosperity for which many looked  ab  the  opening  of   the twentieth  century,   there   is    nevertheless  a  taudency   to avoid doubtful  speculation and to conduct   business on  sound business principles.   The men  on tlie road for the local wholesale  houses   are  evidently  doing their  work  well,  seeing   that points  so  near active eastern competition  as  Revelstoke and Fernie are successfully covered.    Monoy is  reported  tight,   nevertheless  old   customers  experience no difficulty in getting  all the reasonable credit they ask  for.    Newcomers started in with a  good bank account, and so  loug as  they are in a position to meet their  obligations   their   custom   will  be  catered to.     New towns aud camps  are opening up iu all directions and  whenever an opportunity for business offers, there will  be found  a-  represeutative of a Nelson wholesale   house.      Some   of   the   older  settlements   have  fallen  away for  . the time being,' but new ones  are  opening up to  take  their., place on  the  wholesalers'  list.    During  the  week, for instance, there have been  "shipments to Michel���a new mining  town on the line of the Crow's Nest  Pass     railway,   while     Ferguson,  Trout Lake City and other  points  -   in the Lardeau country are springing into prominence in consequence  of   railway   construction and  the  development  of the   rich  mineral  resources of that section.   That the  volume of trade is  somewhat disappointing     all    the   wholesalers  agree,   but  then  they  look  hopefully on the future, and are content  that each individually is  receiving  a fair proportion of the  patronage  that offers.  Starkey ��fc Co. report a good  week in the provision trade. Their  man has beeu on the road and is  sending iu very acceptable orders.  Siuce Monday last they have  '.v shipped to Trail, Revelstoke, Sandon, Eholt, Fernie, Ymir, Rpssland  ^and^New^Iienver.^The^resumption^  of work on the Bosiin at the latter  poiut has had its effect on trade.  ������''��� Cholditch & Co. speak of business  as quiet. Nevertheless they  shipped during the week to Greenwood, Cranbrook, Phoenix, Moyie,  Ferguson, Rossland, Ymir, Midway,  Fernie, Trail, Lardo, New Denver,  and Slocan City.  The mattress factory has more to  do ��� than it can attend to. The  company, of course, enjoy a mont.  opoly in the Kootenays in their  particular line. Their shipping  points during the week were Trail,.  Greenwood, Phoenix, Rossland,  Moyie aud Cranbrook.  The Nelson Saw & Planing Mill  Company are busy, but not worked  to their full capacity. Within the  past few. weeks they have sent out  some large shipments to Lardo, for  construction work, also to Bonning-  tou Falls, Arrowhead and Grand  Forks. Building operations are  slow, but if half the number of  plans now on paper in the local architects' offices are put into lumber  or brick, the season will be a busy  one. L. ������������-.  Macdonald & Co. have sent out  goods since Monday last to Grand  Fork*, Cascade City, Rock Creek,  Anaconda, Greenwood, Kitchener,  Ainsworth, Slocan Junction, New  Denver, Creston, Fire Valley, Robson, Slocan City, Gladstone, Columbia and Ymir. The general rule  was, however, small orders.  W. F. Teetzel & Co., druggists  and assayers' supplies, report business quiet. Their shipping points  during the week were Trail, Rossland, Slocan City, Salmo, Kimberley, Grand Forks, Phoenix and  Greenwood.  E. Ferguson & Co., wines, liquors  ��ud cigars, have had a busy week,  their shipping points being Hall's  Siding, Ymir, Erie, Waneta, Slocan  City, Rosebery, New Denver, Sandon, Grand Forks, Midway, Greenwood, Robson, Columbia, Rossland,  Trail, Ferguson and Kitchener.  The California Wine Co. have  done a good business in the Lardeau country during the week and  also shipped to Moyie, Robson, Fernie, Cranbrook, Kimberley, Ainsworth, Arrowhead, Comaplix,  Thompsons Landing, Trout Lake  City, Ferguson, Nakusp, Ymir, Erie  and Silverton.  J. Y. Griffiu & Co. have shipped  since Monday last to Slocan, Sandon, Eholt, Midway, Rossland,  Cranbrook, Grand Forks, Fernie,  Moyie, Trail, Phoenix, Robson,  Windermere, Columbia, New Denver, Whit-^^tgr, Erie, Creston,  Alamo, KaSS^gSSitepV'X. Granite,  Cascade, W^^MfW^iBp^  Bay and Michel."TtfiSSSg^ffinch  recently added to the business, is  reported as doing well.  The Brackman-Ker Co., handling  flour and feed, have done a good  week's business. Their shipping  points were Creston, Robson, Waneta, Fire Valley, Greenwood, Kaslo,  Ymir, Ainsworth, Sandon, Lardo  and New Denver.  The Kootenay Supply Co. have a  lot of goods ready for shipment, but  as from other houses, small lots are  the order of the day. The shipping  points for the week, were Slocan  City, Kaslo, Creston, Robson, Kimberley, Phoenix, Grand Forks, Eholt,  Moyie, Ymir, Salmo, Erie, Pilot Bay,  Crawford Bay, Cranbrook, Whitewater, and Porto Rico Siding.  H. J. Evans & Co. filled orders  since Monday last from Waneta,  Lardo, New Denver, Ymir, Trail  and Rossland. "Business dull, but  we get our full share of it," is the  report on the week's operations.  A. B. Gray, representing R. P.  Rithet & Co. and the Express Cigar  Co., shipped to Trail, Rossland,  Kaslo, Slocan, Sandon and Ymir.  The Kootenay Cigar Co. have  been busy supplying local demands  as well as sendiug their favorite  weeds to - Blairmore, Robson,  Phoenix, Pilot B.iy and Nakusp.  Turner, Beeton & Co 'f have had a"  very quiet week, but had consignments for Ymir, Erie, Slocan ' City,  Greenwood, Phoenix, Grand Forks,  Robson, Trout Lake City, Ferguson,  Porto Rico, Granite Siding, Alamo,  Fernie aud Moyie.  Happy Though Quarantined.  A letter received in the city yesterday from one of the five Nelson  footballers quarantined "in Cranbrook announces that the party  are in good health aud spirits, and  are becoming experts at the game  of quoits, which they play on the  roof of the hotej in whieh they are  held. All have been vaccinated,  but are still able to use the right'  arm freely. There are 35 suspects  in the Cosmopolitan, all of whom  are longing for release. The Nelson contingent have entered a vow  =not^to=play=ball=-in==any=distriet=  where there is the slightest suspicion of smallpox.   .  Arrival of the Goodrow Family.  The Goodrow barge7 was towed  into Nelson yesterday from Crawford bay, with seven members of  the family. The barge is tied up  at the ice-house wharf, and will  probably remain there until the  release of the head of the' family,  who is now undergoing a term of  imprisonment in " the Provincial  Jail; When Mrs. Goodrow and the  young Goodrows were last in Nelson the city and provincial authorities subscribed to get them back to  Crawford Bay on the understanding that they were to remain there.  The First of the Season.  The first rifle practice of the  Rocky Mountain Rangers will be  held at Fairview range today.  Owing to several minor repairs to  the targets, shooting .will not commence until about 2l p. in. Arms  and ammunition may be obtained  at the armory between 12 and 12:30,  and rifles must be returned between  0 aud 6:30, as the company is recruited to full strength aud every  piece will be required for weekly  drills.       -    '.   "     ' ,  Morris Tubes to Hand  The officers of No. 2 company,  Rocky Mountain Rangers, were  notified yesterday that two Morris  tubes had been shipped from  militia stores at Victoria for the  use of the local militiamen. These  tubes are to be inserted in the barrels of Lee-Enfield rifles, thereby  reducing the bore. No. 22 short  cartridges are used, and by this  means rifle practice is possible indoors during the winter season.  DEBATING IHE REFINERY BONDS  Champions of the Stall-Farmers Talk Against It.  Victoria, April 19.���[Special to  The Tribune.]���On Tuesday last the  silver-lead question held the floor  of the legislative assembly. The  discussion was very interesting, but  chiefly as illustrating the level of  intelligence maintained on subjects  pertaining to mining by many of  the lawmakers of British Columbia.  A motion was moved recommending to the serious consideration of  tho provincial government the propriety of granting a bonus of $5 a  ton on pig lead produced and refined in the province. This motion  was ruled out of order because it  dealt with a money question, as its  mover had undoubtedly expected  it would be, because he had placed  on the order paper, at the same  time, a motion which read as follows:  Wlioreas lead mining In British Columbia has  grown into a most important industry, giving  employment to a lar^e number of men at high  wages, supporting the population of an extensive  area in the Kootenay districts, and adding much  to tho general prosperity of the"country; and  Wheroas the increase and development of the  industry are certain under favorable conditions,  which conditions mainly depend on the miners  being able to get their ore smelted at a reasonable chargo for freight and treatment; and  Whereas the demand for these lead ores by  smelters in the United States has almost ceased,  and the capacity of the smellers now operating  In llritish Columbia is totally inadequate to  treat the output of these mines, some of which  have already lessened their output and others  have"closed down on account of this difficulty;  and  Whereas no means of refilling bass bullion exists today in Canada, thereby necessitating the  shipment to United States refineries of the lead  products of Canadian smelters, and a much  higher>ate for refining lead than formerly is  now being demanded by the American smelting  "and reflnlrg trust; and   .  .-Whereas there is no tendency observable' to  .Increase >the" smoltlng;.capacily in'" the. districts  now suffering, while the danger of having to  pay excessive rates for refining continues; and  Whereas the establishment of a lead refinery  readily accessible to tho load-producing districts  would undoubtedly lead tothe erection of more  furnaces, and thus afford the lead-mining industry the relief it now so urgently stands in need  of:  Therefore, bo it Resolved, That an humble  address bo presented ,to his honor, tho lieutenant governor, requesting him to communicate  with the Dominion government that the establishment of a lead refinery in an accessible portion of Canada is the surest and best means of  fostering and encouraging tho lead-mining industry of British Columbia, and reapectfuily  urging upon thatgovernment that to aid this industry and ^assist it until fully established a  bounty be granted for five years of ?5 per ton of  pig lead, the product from ores mined, smelted  and refined in Canada.  Be it further Resolved, That if a bounty be  granted, thegovernment should retain the power  of interfering in case more than fair and profitable rates were charged.  The ��� cliscussion Tyhich followed  was by ho means a unanimous explanation and endorsation. of, the  resolution according to the lights of  the varioussmemb'ers who^ spoke,. It  was carried; it "is true, with, only  one dissentient "voicje" (Mr. Oliver of-  Delta voted against it), but it, was,  attacked, pooh poohed, and the necessity of * a* -bonus denied by  -Messrs. Martin, Brown and Oliver,  three of the leading lights of the  opposition. Their attitude placed-  Smith Curtis in a very awkward  position., So he^gqfc up and informed the house that he knew  what was the matter with the' silver-lead, industry, and would enlighten the people, generally on the  subject on another,opportunity. He  wound iip, however, .by saying he  would vote for the resolution.  Green, Houston aud McBride  made good speeches on the subject.  Houston made a particularly good  speech. John Houston as an orator  is a decided novelty. He speaks in  a loud voice, uses short, incisive  sentences, and jerks out a bit of'  dry humor occasionally that always  catches his audience. For instance,  in this debate the question turned  ���why, an all-wise providence and  Joseph Martin alone know���on the  comparative merits of farming and  mining. Houston said the farmers  were crying for a railway to Kootenay in order to market their produce, with'whom? the miner. That  is where mining helps farming. "I  maintain," he continued, "that the  miner has done7 the farmer' more  good than all other individuals put  together ��� politicians ' included."  The emphasis-with which this entirely unexpected ��climax- was  directed at the' front" opposition  .benches set theJiQuse^ip,a^r,oar._, In  two words Houston had, raised, the  picture of the oily-tongned politician working the farmer, .with  smooth words, while the miner was  eating all the beef and cabbages he  could raise, and applied it to the  men who had been trying- to make  capital with the farming interest  as against the mining.  Of course apart from mere incidents of debate like tliat, there was  nothing in any of the speeches in  favor of the resolution noc perfectly  familiar to everyone in Kootenay.  But it was different, very different,  with the speeches made criticizing  it. The present government may  not be very enlightened in mining  matters, but may the mining industry long be spared a government  with Martin, Brown and Oliver as  its shining lights I Martin got up  and said that as a free trader-\~he,  objected to - bounties. However,, asf  the Dominion government were giving bounties for the manufacture  of steel, he did not see why a,  similar industry in British Col-  unibia should not get a bounty also.  That was all right. But he went  on to say that if bounties were going, farming was far more entitled  to them than mining. It might be  pointed out to Martin that mining  in Canada produces $60,000,000 a-  year: That of those $60,000,000'  probably $50,000,000 are spent on.  produce of the. soil".' ' If that is not  in itself a stimulant to farming,  what is ?. It was pointed out to  him that in creameries, cold storage,,  experimental farms; and so forth,  the government has spent enormous'  sums in bonusing farming,  Mr. Brown got up then and'  argued, that mining was' detriment  tai to a country compared with'  farming, because the miner"took  money out of the-ground and impoverished it, whereas the farmer  enriched it. It never seemed to occur to Brown that what the miner  took out enriched the community  at all. His words were "he put it  in his own pocket." He also said  this bounty would probably cost the  country $1,000,000 a year. Imagine  200,000 tons of pig lead produced in  Canada in five years ! A man with  ideas like that, and so monstrously  ignorant of the province's main in-  dustry,is simply unfit to be a member of a legislature in a mining  country.    ' - / *  Then followed Oliver, harping on  -the same'string, only more'so. The  attitude of these three, .gentleman  towards,: the mining industry is. ex-  actlyjbhe same attitude^hich, was  taken'by the Boers to-.th'e'.mining  "industry of the' Transvaal. The  people in Kootenay often' 'kick because their- representatives cannot  impress-upon the legislature ideas  and proposals which are perfectly  clear and" reasonable to them. They  kick because they have no conception of what their members have to  contenda gainst. A chamber containing Martins, and Browns, aud  Olivers, is, from a mining point of  view, a chamber of horrors. They  might be living in a different planet  for all they know or care about  mining. It must be confessed that  there are a few on the government  side also whose usefulness, a little  more knowledge and a slightly  wider poiut of view on mining matters would not injure.  TALKS LIKE AN AMERICAN  ^ictdria/cbuld accommodations for  the exktaina'tion of the same number of men be found to equal those  furnished by Nelson's well known  assayers' supply 'firm. The reason  for this is that' Nelson has kept  pace with the mineral development  of the country, and is now the recognized center of the province for  assayers* supplies of all kinds.

TATLOWAND=CARDENilUIYIP  VOTE AGAINST THE INCREASE IN  REVENUE TAX.  Houston Charges Smith Curtis With  Insincerity and Inconsistency as  the Poor Man's Friend.  J3ases^in,jChambers,=  Victoria, April .19.���[Special'to  The Tribune.]���-The provincial revenue tax bill was read a second  time today. It provides that the  tax be raised from $3 to $5 on and  after January 1st, 1902, and then  only by an order-in-council. Smith  Curtis, of Rossland, spoke against  the bill, and read telegrams from  trades councils and miners' unions  in Kootenay in opposition to the  passage of the   bill, 'but; he   was  forced by Houston, of-Nelson, to admit that the telegrams were in every  instance in response to communications from him. Houston charged  Curtis with insincerity and inconsistency in opposing the bill, saying  that he posed as the friend of the  poor mau, yet when the government sought to raise taxation by  imposing a tax on the income of  banks, and insurance, railway,  telephone aud electric light  and power companies, he was  equally vehement in denouncing the. government. The second  reading passed by 22 to 11, Tatlow  and Garden voting with the Opposition.. Pooley and Martin were  absent and Kidd did not vote.  P. McL Forin, acting county court  judge, heard several cases in  chambers yesterday morning.    ;  The Fairview Lumber Company  vs. Elizabeth Rod way et al .came up  and was further deferred.  The Royal Bank of Canada vs.  the Molly Gibson Mining Company,  involving some $16,814, was further  adjourned by consent.  Manley vs. Callom was an application for an order calling "upon  defendant to pay into court*��$.777  aud costs of. action before, Mr.  justice Walkem, last year in Nelson,  and that such motion stand pending  appeal to full court, was dismissed,  and an order made . that the. de?  fendant pay over to .plaintiff's  solicitor the sum in question, an  undertaking being given.fthat, the.  money be refunded if the appeal be.  successful. ���  Thurston vs. Weyl, involving the  ownership of some townsite lots at  Rossland: was gone into and adjourned to be brought up any. time  on two days' notice. v  A number of suits ;for; recovery  of claims against the Molly Gibson  Mining Company were reported as  settled out of court.  Lake Traffic to. Open.  Word has been received at the  local C. P. R. offices that the eastern lake trade will' probably open  by the 30th instant, and orders are  being shipped accordingly.  Burns Bests' Cuff.  Rosslanij, April 19.���The glove  contestbetween Jimmy Burns aud  Ed Cuff, heavyweights, which took  place at the International this  evening, was won by the former in  the second round, with a left hand  blow on the jaw, which put Cuff out.  ASSAWR'S-EXAMINATIONS  FIFTEEN   MEN  TBY  FOR NECESSARY CERTIFICATE.  Four years ago the firm  -Teetzel .Sc- Co. embarked in the  assayers, supply business in a small  iway, but year afcer year they  padded to their stock, in keeping tip  with the demands of the trade,  until at the present time Nelson  can ' boast of having the largest  assayers' supply establishment in  Canada. There is no assayer's  requisite, either in the way of  chemicals, chemical . glassware,  porcelain ware, crucibles, furnaces  or balances which Messrs. Teetzel &  Company cannot supply on a moment's notice.  To such proportions has their  trade in this line grown that im-"  .portations in every case are now  made direct from the manufacturers.  The chemical glassware comt^ direct from the makers in Germany,  crucibles and other clay goods are  imported chiefly from England,  while the manufacturers in the  United States are drawn upon for  .their balances and chemicals. This  , shows that in assayers supplies,  as-in all other, branches of trade,  Nelson's merchants are up to date.  A Fire That Did Not Flame. -  - The fire brigade were rung np  shortly before noon yesterday, the  call being to the Sherbrooke hotel.  When the alarm sounded the only  man in the fire hall was Stutter,  and he promptly got the horses in  harness and drove to * the place  designated. The other members of  the brigade were, promptly at "the  scene, but their services were .not'  called into requisition. "In raising  the hotel building to accommodate  the new street grade, the stovepipes in the upper part of the house  became, detached . and .filled;,the  place -with4 smoke. ,-������ Seeing - this  emitting from the";,r'oofaaud.; npper  windowsirthe_ alarm was sonnded..  Investigation proved that no damage was done, aiid in a few.minutes  connections were made, and all set  right again.  Slocan and Incorporation.  There was a number of Slocan  men iu the city yesterday and they  are all talking incorporation. The  bill making a city of the burg has  passed the legislature and only  awaits the official signature to make  ifc law. It i.s more than likely that  there will be a lively contest foi  mayoralty and aldermanic honors.  The first mayor will either be A.  York, tlie butcher, or D. D. Robertson, the furniture man, the betting  at present being in favor of the  former. The waterworks question  will be the firstjjreat problem the  Sewr^iucm'pdrated^town wiiriiave-  to face.  Rivals That Issued by E. C.  Coy Some Years Ago.  Nelson Leads the Whole Dominion in  the Business of Furnishing Assayer's Supplies.  The examination for assayers for  licenses to practice in British Columbia, which II. Carmiehael, the  ^government examiner has been conducting in Nelson for the past.week,  was terminated yesterday. This  year the examination took place in  the warerooms of W. F. Teetzel &  Company, on the corner of Vernon  and Josephine streets, which tbe  firm fitted up with every requisite  and placed at the disposal of the  government. There were fifteen- candidates for examination  and they made a busy - scene bustling around their improvised laboratory.  ; Concerning the results of the examination, Mr. Carmiehael yesterday refused to speak until his re-  port'could be forwarded to the provincial authorities, but he added  that about half the applicants for  licenses had been successful. Mr.  Carmiehael, however expressed himself as highly pleased with the accommodations afforded by Messrs.  Teetzel & Company for examination, they being all that could be  expected and greatly facilitating  the work.  It is safe to say that nowhere,  outside of the government office in  Mining Activity at Slocan.  The Arlington at Slocan has  dropped off the shipping list, not  because thero is any scarcity of  good ore, but owing to the heavy  condition of the roads leading from  the mine. Work is going ahead on  the Speculator, Tamarac aud Phoenix and yesterday a force of men  was engaged for the Ottawa. On  Ten-mile creek there is also considerable activity, the Iron Horse, Enterprise and Neepawa being operated. A great season's work is confidently predicted by the mining  men of the division. **  Mining Records.  The following are the mining  transactions recorded yesterday:  Certificates for assessment work to  J. S. Clute on the Big Two,  Bonanza, Nebraska Girl, and  Franklin, and to Andrew Burgess  on the White Star. There were no  transfers, sales or new locations  recorded. _^  Lord Roberts' Promotions.

All the geological reports printed  do not disturb the fact that,the  only coal available from the East  Kootenay coal fields is that owned  vby the Crow's Nest Pass Coal Company of Toronto. Ifc matters very  little what' the extent of the coal  measures are so long as all that are  available are owned by one company, a fact whicli probably explains the eagerness of the Toronto  philanthropists to secure their railway charter without conditions.  The mineral tax, which is so  loudly denounced by the political  mine-managers of Kootenay, ��� requires the mines in the Trail Creek  mining division to pay $14,223.28 in  taxes, while the men who work in  the mines, those who are searching  for other mines, and those who  minister to the wants of the little  army of miners and prospectors,  pay under five heads of taxation  the sum of $39,171.62 in taxes.  During the last fiscal year all the  ^_big_mines_in_the_Trail_creek_divis^  ion paid to the provincial govern-  ment^but $11,223.28 in taxes, while  the prospectors paid for their licenses $16,770.15. These figures show  how the mineral tax operates. Men  who have shipping mines, the only  properties giving any return to  their owners, pay much less in taxes  than the men who have yet their  properties to find or develop.  Is it not a.trifle strange that the  mine-managers of Rossland should  do so much kicking over a taxation  of $11,223.28 upon their profits,  while the mine-workers in Rossland,  without complaint, pay $10,09S.OO  in poll-taxes for the privilege of  laboring in their mines ?  Thb difficulty experienced by the  Laurier government in securing  from the Crow's Nest Pass Coal  Company an agreement to treat  Canadian industries fairly, is rather  good evidence that without such  agreement Canadian industries  would have stood a poor chance  of such treatment.  Employers Anticipated   the Strikers.  Oswego, April 19.���The Fulton  mills of the American AVooIen Company were closed on telegraphic instructions from headquarters in  Andover, Massachusetts, which were  received yesterday. Between 1300  and 1500 men aud women lose employment, and the business of tho  village of Fulton and O.swego Falls  yvill be greatly affected.   The com  pany gave as a reason for its action  that the employees were trying to  stir up trouble, and were interfering with the business. This was  vigorously denied by the women,  who say there was no disposition in  tha�� direction, and that the only  trouble was with the weavers, who  objected to instructing apprentices  because they lost time, from their  work aud received no pay for the  lost time. The weavers proceeded  to make formal demands or strike,  but other departments were not interested in the plan. Some weeks  ago the spinners, who had beeu  working from 0:15 a. m. to 6:40 p, m.  daily, struck because of long hours  and received no concessions. Superintendent Weden decliued absolutely to discuss the situation.  Oswego, New York, April 19.���A  statement was issued by the weavers  this afternoon saying that the  trouble had arisen over the employment of non-union men in the  upper mill. The weavers in that  mill are members 'of the union, and  in order to learn a weaving apprentice must, join ��� the union ' and pay  $5 to the weaver teaching him the  trade. A few days ago a man  named Baldwin refused to comply  with the union demands. The  weaver refused him instructions,  and yesterday declined to return to  work until Baldwin should be discharged. The superintendent complied with the demand and the men  returned to work. About 4:20  o'clock the notice was posted  ordering a general shut down, and  the weavers quit immediately. The  mills pay out $11,000 weekly in  wages.         They Don't Want Much.  St. John, New Brunswick, April  19.���R. B. MacAuley, of the dry  goods firm of MacAuley Bros. & Co.  of this city, returned from England  yesterday, whither he had been  arranging with British capitalists  to take up the question of a fast  Atlantic line. He says capitalists  are ready to put into service in two  years time a fleet of 10,000-t'on  steamers, which will make the  voyage from Canada to the mother-  Iandin-six"days���aiui-a-lialf, pro-  vided the Canadian government  grants an annual subsidy for ten  years of $500,000. They further  ask, however, that the government  reduce ' the preferential tariff to  35.',- per cent, instead of 33,*^ per  cent, and that it be made applicable  to goods coming only through  Canadian ports.  United States Beef Shut Out.  London, April 19.���Answering a  question in the house of commons  today, the financial secretary of  the war. oflice, lord Stanley, con-'  filmed the report that all the contracts now made excluded the supplying of foreign meats iu the case  of all troops in the United Kingdom. The under secretary of the  foreign office, lord Cranborne, replying to a question, said that the  Russian flag still floated over the  custom house at New Chwang, and  that the customs were collected by  a Chinese staff,-turned over to the  Russians, and held by them in  trust subject to a future settlement.  Big Industry for Canada.  Detroit, April 19.���Tho Evening  News this afternoon says: Final  arrangements were made today afc  the Rii3sell House for the building  of a steel and iron plant at Sault  Sto Marie, on the Canadian side,  which will employ 10,000 men. The  com pany is capitalized at $50,000,000.  Opinion in United States.  New York, April 19.���The proposal of sir Michael Hicks-Beach to  tax coal exported from England a  shilling a ton, is a gratifying announcement to coal exporters here.  C. J. Wittenberg, president of the J  Chesapeake, Ohio Coal & Coke Co.,  said: "At many of the Mediterranean ports where both English and  American coal is shipped the price  is very close, and an export duty of  a shilling a ton on English coal will  drive much of the business to this  country. The tax will be especially  welcome too, as for the past few  years the price of English coal has  been steadily advancing.  Commissary Irregularities Overrated  Manila, April 19.���General Mac-  Arthur and general Bates, the commander of southern Luzon, who is  shortly to sail for the United  States, reviewed today the 45th  and 40th volunteer infantry, which  will sail for home on the transport  Sheridan on Monday nexfc. During  the past week 288 rifles have been  surrendered. The extent of the  commissary irregularities is not yet  defined, but is possibly smaller  than at first supposed.

Peterson, Robsoo; "  London, April  19.���Taken as a  whole, the comments of the country  on the proposals of the chancellor  of   the  exchequer, in the budget  statement     presented    yesterday,  cannot be regarded as unfavorable.  The   outstanding   feature   of, the  public's  reception of the budget is  the outcry from-the coal district?,;  and  in',, a lesser  degree from the  business   affected   by . tl^e   sugar  taxes..   In  coal  taxes   the export  duty is regarded as confirming the  idea in spme radical quarters that  the government is riding for a. fall,  but the" well informed consider it  possible that the chancellor of the  exchequer will be induced to exempt from the new duty all contracts made prior .to the day,  thus  relieving the pressure of the middle  men who have bought or sold coal  for the future delivery.     This, it is  believed, will  go far to reconcile  the coal trade generally to the new  imposition, in the meanwhile, however,   the  opposition   of   the  coal  owners is augmenting hourly.   The  chambers of commerce in  the  coal  districts  are protesting in vigorous  terms,' the   Cardiff   porters   scent  ruin, and their markets being  captured   by   American   aud  German  coal. ' The manufacturers,  on the  other hand, flatter themselves that  the  effect  of   Ihe  tax  will be  to  lower prices and lessen competition  iu iron and steel.  The" grocers advanced sugar a  half peuiiy per pound this morning  in London." British refined sugars  werevery strong, and jumped from  two shillings to two shillings and  six pence. The Scotch manufacturing and 'pie erve makers advanced  the price ��� four shillings and six  pence t'otwo'shilliugs and sixpence  per: -hittfdi'ed - Aveight, respectively.  The Scotch sugar refiners have put  on thre*e" shillings to four shillings,  arid have abolished discounts. There  was priietically no business today  on -the Greenock sugar exchange  owing to the extensive buying  previous1 to the budget announcements. The president of the Refiners' Association expressed the  opinion1 that the tax would work,  out benefically. A steamer with a  cargo of continental sugar arrived  (at Greenock yesterday ovening,  after thecustom house closed, and  was refused permission ��� to unload.  The duty on her cargo amounts to  ��2000. The importer claims that  the duty on sugar had not been imposed when the steamer arrived,  and, therefore, they will contest  the payment of the duty.  The export' coal business at  Cardiff docks was at a standstill  "tollayr^M^iralits^refulM^t^sBip  and take the responsibility on the  new tax while the colliery owners  repudiate any liability. The Scotch  exporters of coal are of the opinion  that the United States is bound to  capture the West. Indian coal  market. The ship-owners of Glasgow anticipate that a portion of the  duty will come out of their pockets.  The comments of the afternoon  papers here follow the lead of the  morning papers"geuerally,in anticipating that the more acute tension  will soon pass off.

IsTELSOlsr  STORES   AT  s^-isriDoisr  part of the budget, and,think the  sugar duty will ��� press especially  hard on . Ireland, owing to the  general poverty of the people.  London, AprillO.-^The Daily  Express has received the'following  from its correspondent in Kingston,  Jamaica: Much disappointment is  expressed, here at the'absence of  countervailing duties from the  budget. The sugar trade is at  present. almost. wholly with the  United States, and the tax of a half  penny per pound will keep it there."  EASTERN CANADIAN NEWS  ST.
