New Fields of Operations Opened Up  ,      in Different Sections of  the Kootenays.  BRITAIN IS UNSUCCESSFUL  CANNOT  SECURE REDUCTION  INDEMNITY CLAIMS.  IN  England and the   United   States are  Now Working in Concert in the  _ Chinese Negotiations.  London, April 26.���A representative of the Associated Press learns-,  that Britain is not relaxing her efforts  to i lid uce the po wers to decrease their -  pecuniary demands upon Chiua, aud*  to arbitrate fora "portion  of  their"  claims and commercial agreements.''  Tlie1 latest^ advices   from   British  minister "Satow, "at Pekin, do not  indicate "any. degree of success so  far, owing, it is said, to opposition  on the part of Germany, who continues to insist on the payment in  full  of   the   large   indemnity   she  claims.    Mr. Rockhill, the American  special commissioner at Pekin, and  sir Earnest Satow are said to be  working on identical lines.  Pekin, April -20.���The Chinese  regulars - who * retired beyond the  great .wall have reappeared at  another point within the international area. Strong representations have been made to the Chinese  _plentipoteritiaries~~in~regard_to~~the  necessity for immediate retirement.  The French force is in readiness to  renew the operations, but has been  ordered to await the result of the  imperial edicts.  Washington, April 20.���The following cablegram has been received  at the state department from Mr.  Squire, the United States charge  d'affairs at Pekin, dated Tuesday:  The empress dowager has appointed  n board of national adminstration  to relieve her of her public functions. They embrace three members of the cabinet now with tho  empress' at Siang Fu, and prince  Ching, .viceroy Li and prince Kuang  who are now iri Pekin." This news  is regarded as of importance, indicating as it does the relinquishment  by the empress dowager of the arbitrary powers she heretofore has  exercised. It also is apparent that  she has placed herself in a position  to avoid direct responsibility to the  foreigners for whatever may happen in the future as the board will  have to bear the brunt of any complaints. It is felt that the appoint-:  ment of this board will make it  ���much easier for the foreign ministers to transact business with the  Chinese mogul. Three members of  the cabinet now at Siang Fu include the notorious Jung Lu, who  was one of the most active in the  outbreak against the foreigners  last summer. One of the older  members of this council is 70 years  old, and is said to be greatly debilitated. The choice of these three is  looked upon as likely to complicate  tlie good whieh Li Hung Chang and  the others may accomplish.  Pekin, April 26.--Th,e Chinese  are wondering if the imperial commission,   appointed   by   au   edict.  issued April 23rd to enquire into  the question of reforms, really  means the ��'elinquishing of absolute  power by the court or whether it is  merely the formation of a privy  council. Notices in , Chinese were  placarded during the night calling  on patriotic Chinamen to rise May  10th and expel all foreigners. Yung  Tu Ling, the censor of Chi Li  province, has niemoralized the  ���throng to return.  Pekin, April 26.���The sixteen  Krupp guns aud sixty-seven carts  of ammunition, captured by the  British near Shan Hai Kwan, are in  excellent condition. " An Indian  native officer, who made the capture, was offered two carts of silver,  if he would not take the guns and.  say nothing about them.'  TOLSTOI'S FAMpUsT LETTER  Shook Things.Up. '  Berlin, April 26.���The National'  Zeitung   today   prints   a   Russian  special correspondence which contains another version of the letter  of count Leo Tolstoi, of April 10 thy:  which was addressed  to" the czar  and the cabinet.   The letter protested against the system bf forcibly  suppressing intellectualarid political  progress, counselling the liberation  of the peasants from despotic treatment, the removal of all barriers of  enlightment, and the free profession  of any faith.   The letter concludes:-  "This appeal have I,. Leo Tolstoi,!  written not as a personal conviction,  but as the conviction of millions in  Russia."    The correspondent adds:  "The letter has made the deepest  impression throughout Russia."  The Cologne Volks Zeitung prints  a St; Petersburg special,which says��  tlie university situation -has again  suddenly grown worse. From  Moscow university: word -has been  to,. persist in . passive. opposition  until . the students have been  pardoned.  Vessel Owners Weaken..  Cleveland, April 26.���A largely  attended ,* .meeting * of prominent  vessel owners, including represeht-  atives.of the United States, steel  corporation vessel interest, was in  session here this afternoon for the  purpose of taking joint action with  a view, to ending /the marine  engineers' strike. The,meeting was  held behind closed >dbors. W. C.  Richardson, a leading vessel man,  and a member of ttie Lake Carrier's  Association, today signed the engineers' wage scale, and the engineers employed in his fleet will return at once to work.  Murderers, Forgers, and Perjurers.  New York, April 20.���Lawyer  Albert T. Patrick, David L. Short,  and Morris were brought before the  recorder of the court of' general  sessions this afternoon to plead to  the indictments fouud against them.  The grand jury returned an  additional indictment today against  Meyers and Short, charging each  with perjury. This charge is based  on the testimony of Meyers and  Short before justice Jerome, when  they said that they saw Rice sign  the will to which their names were  signed as witnesses.  '���'The wholesale   trade of  Nelson  shows   an   improvement over the  preceding   week,   although it has  not been   what might have been  reasonably expected at this season  of the year.    As has been the case  for weeks past, retailers are very  cautious in giving orders and when  they write a bill it is on the "hand-  to-mouth"   principle.     Orders are  small,   but   numerous and if   the  credit system was in vogue a great  volume of business would be done.  Jobbers, however, are inclined to  do business on a ready-cash basis  except in the case of old,  reliable  customers, who can have the credit  they want.   For the opening of the  season���as it ought to be���the local  wholesale   houses  have had their  representatives on the road, but the  orders sent in are not up to the  high-water mark expected. Throughout the Kootenays business is reported dull.   The Boundary country, which a few weeks ago was  looked upon as a good field of operation,   has practically   fallen - off  wheu local travelers begin to compare notes. Wheu the Slocan mines  began  to   reduce their   staff,    all  hands laid off appear to have made  for the Boundary, with the result  that the   labor   market    in   that  section    has     become    congested.  There is talk of another smelter at  Grand Forks, but the prospects do  not   seem   to   suggest  to   traders  there that large stocks should be  laid  in in anticipation of an increased pay-roll.     Big orders are'  coming in from the Lardo country,  where   railway - construction ..has.-  giveri-anf impetus- to trade:    The.  railway  " party . leaving     Nelson"  yesterday   gives an   assurance   of  active operations  which the local  merchants are anxious to forestall,  and consequently their orders have  been liberal during the week.    The  here-and-there   cases of   smallpox  reported from East Kootenay have  deterred   commercial    men    from  striking that country���-they have a  wholesomeMread of the quarantine..  Those, however, who have run the"  risk have sent in'some good orders.  At Moyie things are not as dead as  many suppose.   The closing down  Of the St. Eugene mine has. bet a  few hundred men at liberty, but a  new saw mill is, in course of erection within the town limits, and it  promises to supply lumber and em-  ployment.   The feeling in Moyje_isL  that mines so rich cannot long re-,  main idle.    However advisable the  directors may consider it to keep  the    mines    closed    down   pending     an     improvement    in    the  prices   of    silver   and   lead,   the  eastern stockholders do not like.the  idea of having their capital tied up  and unproductive.   They feel disposed to force operations, even at a  small margin of profit, and local  mine managers^ili'have to comply with the demand.   Similar conditions r;prevail%iri   other   camps  throughout the Kootenays, and at  Nelson  wholesalers appreciate the  fact.   They look forward to an immediate pick up in trade.   While  orders have not been large during  the week  the shipping list shows  that a large area has been covered.  Money is tight.   On. this point there  is a thorough concord of opinion,  but it is easier than it was a couple  of weeks ago.   The speculator has  been brought to a sense of the fact  that if he is to do business in the  Kootenays   he   must' invest   some  capital. _'  The Hudson's Bay Company do a  large wholesale and retail business.  The manager reports local business  good, and orders have come in and  been filled for the following points  during the week: Robson, Lardo,  New Denver, Rossland, Kaslo, Ymir,  Kimberley, Fort Steele, Silverton,  Alamo, and several minor points.  Cholditch & Company report  trade dull "considering the times,"  but have shipped during the week  to Kaslo, Columbia, Eholt, Greenwood, Trail, Ymir, Phoenix, Midway, Cranbrook, Rossland, New  Denver, Silverton and Lardo. The  company look for a busy season in  the Lardeau country.  The Mattress Company have had  a busy week, as .usual, seeing that  they enjoy a monopoly in this particular branch of business. They  had large shipments to Ymir, Kaslo,  Cranbrook, , .Nakusp and Trail.  Local trade is reported as brisk,  but several of. the Nelson retailers  send out goods from here which the  Mattress Company manufacture.  A. Macdonald & Co. have had a  busy week shipping to Trail, Greenwood, Burton City, Kitchener, Fire  Valley, Creston, Grand" Forks,  Fernie, New Denver, Nakusp, Cascade City, Eholt, Sandon, Robson,  Erie, Ymir, Rock Creek, Ferguson,  Columbia and Ainsworth.  The Nelson' Sa\y & Planing Mill  Company .have had a fair business  during the week. The building  season has not-'yet opened, but they  have been asked for quotations  from several contractors which indicate a busy time. The mill is going full blast, and lumber ispiling  up, and all this "activity is not on  mere speculation'. The company  is somewhat conservative as to the  information, given out, but outsiders  who watch thek prevailing activity  seem to prognosticate. For the  past few days invoices show shipments to Granite . siding, New  Denver, Ferguson; Rossland and  several minor points.  The California Wine Company  had shipments of wine and cigars  to Lardo, .Moyie, Robson, Slocan,  Greenwood, Grand Forks, Ymir,  Fernie, Revelstoke, Trout Lake,  Phoenix, Comaplix and Kimberley.  There are a couple "of men on the  road from this company who have  not yet been-heard from, and as  there are reasons to believe that  they may be in infected regions  there is some anxiety for,their welfare���not for their oiders.  J. Y. Griffin & Co. have had a big  shipping list including Slocan City,  New Denver, Creston, Pilot Bay,  Kaslo, Kimberley, Ymir, Rossland,  Nakusp, Greenwood, Trail, Fernie,  Sandon, Grand,. Forks, Anaconda,  Eholt, Cranbrook,'Sirdar, Silverton,  Cascade City, Erie, Fort Steele and  Whitewater. Thfe fruit department  recently introduced is proving'a  great success,'and' last night the  first big consignment of-soft'fruits  was received in.the^shape of -liiscipus  strawberries.-' "TJiey will" on'"the*  market today.  Brackman & Ker, flour and feed,  report a good week's business. They  shipped to Pilot Bay, Arrowhead,  Fire Valley, Fort Steele, Ymir Phoenix, Creston, Kuskahook, Robson,  Burton City,Rossland and Waneta.'  The Kootenay Supply Company  have had - a quiet time since Monday last. They had small shipments to Eholt, Moyie, Grand Forks,  Sirdar, Kaslo, Silverton, Kitchener  a,nd Columbia.  Turner, Beeton & Co. also report  .business quiet. They- have done  business during the'week with Slocan City, New Denver, Creston,  Ymir, Cranbrook,- Kaslo, Sandon,  Salmo and Pilot Bay.'  Starkey & Co. say that trade is  jijuiet and that there is difficulty in  placing goods.   They filled orders  during the past six days from Robson, Eholt, Phoenix, New Deliver,  Moyie, Ymir, Grand -Forks, Columbia, Midway and other points.  A. *B. Gray, representing R. P.  Rithet & Company and the Express  Company report shipments to Slocan City, Comaplix, Lardo, Moyie,  Rossland, Ainsworth, Kaslo, Trail  and Porto Rico.  E. Ferguson <fc Company have a  good account to give of themselves.  Their shipping list shows some  large orders from Sandon, Silver-  ton, New Denver, Slocan City,  Trout Lake, Rosebery, Grand  Forks, Rossland and Ferguson.  H. J. Evans & Company have  shipped for the week to Robson,  Grand Forks, Columbia, New Denver and Waneta. '-  Teetzel & Company, assayers'  supplies and drugs, have shipped to  Greenwood, Ymir, Granite, Ross-  liand, Kimberley, Phoenix,: Grand  Forks.  HILL AND THE CRAND TRUNK  Latest Railway Purchase Rumor.  Montreal, April 26.���The report  is current here in well informed  financial circles that Jim Hill is  seeking to secure control of the  Grand Trunk railway for the purpose of securing an outlet to the  Atlantic. This lie would secure in  the purchase of the Grand Trunk  line from Chicago to Portland,  Maine. At the Grand Trunk offices  a prominent official said he would  probably be the last person to hear  about the matter as it would all be  arranged by the board iu London,  but he admitted that such au  arrangement was possible.  EIGHTY BODIES RECOVERED  FROM THE GREISHEIM ELECTROCHEMICAL WORKS.  Search of the Ruins for Other Bodies  Carried on by Large Force  of Workers.  Frankfort, April 26.-1:30 p. m.  ���It transpires that during the terrorized flight this morning a number' of women and children were  thrown down and trampled under  foot. The danger of fresh explosions necessarily retards the drawing up of a correct death roll, mit  laterreports do not indicate that it  is so large as was first reported.  Eighty bodies had been recovered at 11 a. m. today from the debris at the electro-chemical works,  near Greisheim, but still many were  missing! About 150 were injured,  many of them seriously. ' The  work "of fighting the flames proceeded throughout the night,  though the danger of further explosions was regarded as avoided  at midnight. The search of tbe  ruins continues. The scenes which  occurred throughout the night were  most distressing^ Villagers and  survivors were groping about the  ruins in search of relatives and  comrades, and endeavoring to recognize in the charred bodies or  dismembered and mutilated corpses  the identity of missing friends.  The flames-gutted Maray & Mueller's chemical factory and a part of  the Greisheim collar works.  The Shah's Liver and Taxes.  Berlin, April 26.���The Cologne  "Gazette's   St.   Petersburg    correspondent telegraphs that ��� the con-  , dition of the shah of- Persia is becoming worse.    His liver and . kidney affections and the difficulty of  respiration    are- assmmng^jDnoret  ^acuter.formsrl. , The~"cojTesponclent-r  also says considerable excitement  exists among the' population of Teheran because of. the heavy taxes  recently imposed upon meat and  other foodstuffs.  A Card Sharpers' Gallery.  New York, April 26.���A rogues'  gallery of card sharps is to be ��� provided by the New York police, and  hung in the card room of each of  the big transatlantic liners running  out of this port. This action is the  result of the alleged swindling of  Dr. Joseph Mueiet of $8000 on a  recent voyage. Police commissioner  Murphy declares he will make au  effort to drive the gamblers out of  the business.  An Unlucky Trip.  ViCTORiA","April���26^The sealing7  schooner Enterprise arrived tonight  with her flag half-masted. She is  the first of the fleet to return. She  had only 183 skins, and reports  that the season has been a bad one,  the weather being too bad to allow  of many lowerings. While in Drake's  bay two of her hunters, Leonard  Burr of Buffalo and Frank Irving  of Victoria, were drowned, and  William Holmberg died while off  Flattery, his remains being-in her  stern boat. The schooner had come  back before the season closed. On  the 20th the schooner narrowly  escaped destruction by a waterspout, which was first seen three  miles to leeward and broke quite  close to the vessel. Three schooners  were spoken, all with  low  catches.  Train Robber^Hanged.  Clayton, New Mexico, April 20.  ���Thomas E. Ketchum, alias Black  Jack, tlie train robber, was hanged  at 1:21 p. m. today. The rope broke,  but the fall jerked \Ketchum's head  off. . Thomas Ketchum has been the  most noted desperado of the southwest for many years, and although  he was credited with haviug taken  the lives of some of his fellow  beings, his execution today was for  an attempted train robberyin whicli  nobody was killed.  Japan's War to Blame.  London, April 20.���The London  managers of Yokohama specie  banks, and tlie Hong Kong &  Shang-Hai Banking Corporation informed a representative of the  Associated Press today that they  did not fear anything serious would  develop from the bank failures in  Japan.

Victoria, April 26.���[Special' to The Tribune.]���H. Dallas  Helmcken and his fellow plotters felt a trifle cheap today when  Houston, upon a question of privilege, read a portion of an editorial that appeared in the Rossland Miner of Tuesday in which a  personal attack was made upon premier Dunsmuir in connection  with his railway policy. The editorial in question stated premier"  Dunsmuir was prepared to sacrifice the interests of the country  $ so completely whei e his own inclinations or personal gain were  concerned, that he would never again be trusted by the electorate, after which followed these significant words: "It would  then be to the advantage of all concerned if the effort to disrupt.  the present administration should succeed." Further along in  the article H. Dallas Helmcken was set up as the leader of the  new administration with Smith Curtis filling the portfolio of  mines and Eberts, Turner and McBride turned out.  -  Houston scored both the ministers to be. He said the Miner's editorial was permature, as the planned for and predicted  overthrow of the Dunsmuir government has miscarried. H. Dallas Helmcken of Victoria, was not premier aud Smith Curtis of  Rossland was not minister of mines.   ,v  uAn attempt, however, is to be made to amend the., railway  subsidy bill to suit the Helmcken-Curtis V. V. '& E. patriots. The  four per cent on the gross earnings clause is to be changed, so  that the province will not receive at any time more than two per  cent on the amount of its subsidy. This change is not at :��� 11 to  the liking of premier Dunsmuir but he may be forced to give way  to his colleagues. The real fight ���over the bill will be on this  point, and the V. V. & E. crowd will be downed again. There'  are enough members on the government side who can be depended on to stand out for the four per cent; among others is  Smith of West Lillooet, Kidd of Richmond, Taylor of Revelstoke,.-  Green of Slocan aud Houston of Nelson. �� '  ty  ty  ty  ty  ty  ty  ty  ty  ty  ty  ty  ty  K-  ty  ty  ty  ty  ty  ty  ty  .-&.  ���JS_A  r*\st-  -^  --"ft*  :- i  -sfs  tt '77'ArM  tt >: \ ��m  }^&&^&^&&^&&^s-Sr^Q-^&S'&s-S'&s-&^-s-&s-&&s-S'S'^^s-S'^S'&e'&^S'S-&s-i-&^--  tt  &  tt  tt  .tt  tt  tt-  tt  tt  tt  tt"  tts  tt  t  __  tt  tt-  "���***..*  Mr -  #-\'  -<y%hi  m  concerns with a capital of no more  than ��5000 or. ��6000 apiece."

It  is  now  buggested that the clause reserving  'to the  government four  per  cent  xilion the gross earnings of assisted  loads will be amended so that in no  case,  no   matter  what  the actual  profits of the state-aided road may  be, shall the government   receive  more than  two  per  cent interest  upon the amount of the subsidy.  This    concession   will "win   back  to     the     government     its      six  .bolters, withipossibly Smith Curtis  aud  Smith  of East   Kootenay   as  well, but it will probably lose.as  many of its former supporters as it  -   will gain, with the prospect also of  alienating the  support  of Martin,  Brown,    Mclnnes*,    Gilmour   . and  Stables of the opposition, who were.'  reported as willing  to support the  bill as first submitted, as the nearest  possible approach   to state-owned  railways they could expect from the  government.    Each day - the legis-  1 a tii re   now   adds interest to the  government's railway policy,  even  though it fails to add dignity to the  government.  *    The Dunsmuir government's rail -  ' way bill, the fate of which is  now  hanging in the balance through the;  defection of a number  of its  supporters and the weakness of some  of   its  ministers,  makes  provision  for fr\yo- particular pieces of rail-,  way.   The one is a line from  the  ^-Coast-to-Boundaryrc6vering-a"dis-=  'tance of 330 miles, which James J.  Hill is anxious to build.   ,The other  " embraces   the   extension   of   the  lEsquiraalt ,& Nanaimo railway from  its present terminus to the northern  end of Vancouver Island, a distance  of   225   miles,   in   Avhich premier  Dunsmuir is personally interested,  and which  he   also  is  anxious  to  have built/ This being so does it  not   seem   reasonable   to suppose,  that, in framing  a policy for the  subsidizing   of - the  two  pieces  of  railway, premier Dunsmuir would  be careful not to impose conditions  which were either unfair, or whicli  would   have   a   prejudicial   effect  ���upon the building of the two lines  iu question.    Yet the opposition of  the Hill faction to the government's  measure means this;   or it means  that James J. Hill  must be given  more favorable terms for the  construction of his railways  than  the  premier  of the province considers  necessary,    and    conditions   more  favorable than the premier  of the  province is willing to have imposed  upon    the    building   of   a purely  colonization. road  in which  he  is  personally interested, and which he  is anxious to have built.    Such is  the pretext which some half dozen  members of tlie government following offer for bolting, and which at  least three members of the cabinet  appear to consider sufficiently grave  to warrant a reconsideration of the  government  policy.  The prospect of securing supply  for the next fiscal year is probably  causing the Dunsmuir government  more uneasiness than the fate of its  railway bill now before the legislature. The poll of the members  upon the railway bill, which appeared in yesterday's issue of The  Tribune, would indicate the final  passage of that measure; but the  estimates have yet to come, and it  does not follow that the members  of the opposition who might be inclined to support the government's  railway policy, as'in line with their  own views upon government control, would continue such support  upon supply votes. It is here that  the greatest danger, from the government standpoint, may be expected. With its gains 'from the  opposition ranks the government  could pass its railway bill over the  heads of its opponents and lukewarm friends combined; but if- the  opposition votes, necessary to carry  the railway bill, fell off when the  supply votes were reached, the government would require not* only  the compromise partyin the legislature, but some, bf the bolters as  well to save itself from defeat."  This probably is where the shoe  pinches.      ���     , .  The Dunsmuir government  changes its policy oftener .than  some newspapers'do their style and  others their politics.  Britain and Newfoundland- are  likely to come to a definite position  shortly after Mr. Bond's arrival  hereon the Tunisian,on which vessel he sails May 2nd.  The Blow that Killed Smith.  London, April 26.���At the inquest today over the remains of  Billy Smith,* the American pugilist,  who was killed Monday night at  the National Sporting Club by Jack  Roberts, in contest for the 120-  pound championship of England, a  surgeon testified that the autopsy  showed a laceration of the right  side of the brain. Otherwise,  Smith's physical condition was per-  ftcf", and his death had been due to  violence. Smith's brother raised  the question of his brother's having  been given something to drink at  the end of the seventh round, which  caused his collapse, and the coroner  reserved the point for discussion on  Monday. The right name of the  deceased was Murray Livingstone,  and he lived in Philadelphia.  iS'-i-fr '-S*__fr ���-^���'-fii'-!-5^-^*,ia5>i> ^r* "^ ������    0*''0**'0*'���^���-00'*'^''00' *00.-r*^ *00..  pm nuiinm:  iinninirsrurr  TRUNK STRAPS  SHOULDER STRAPS  SHAWL STRAPS  KOOTENAY.

San Francisco, April 26.���Rev."  W.   S.   Ament,   of   the American  Board of Foreign  Missions of the  Congregational church, whose collection    of    indemnity  for   damages    done    by    the - Boxers    in  China had caused  considerable discussion, takes vigorous   exception  to   the   criticisms^ made by Mark  -Twain and others.as to the alleged  conduct of the missionaries. :'He.  says: We found  ourselves  at the  close of the siege with 500. native  Christians upOn our hands, no food,  no clothing, no money, and every  Christian house" burned.     On  the  very   day- of   the   arrival  of   the  -allied forces \ye wereiuforiried that'  we must ,leave the British legation,-  as it was to be used for headquarters for officers of the British army.  Immediately we thought of a mon-  gol prince, Ling, who was an ally  of the Boxers, and whose palace  was   the  headquarters of -Boxers  and Blacklegs.   We found, the palace entirely empty, and the next-  day   we .brought   up   oui'c native  Christians -and   occupied   the   deserted palace.   In that house and  its   neighboring   houses   that   we  occupied   we   put  more than 400  persons;   The only food in the palace was a .little iice. - -We decided  to sell the 'clothing and. curios found  upon the premises and realized-$250  in   gold.

San Francisco, April 20. ��� Tn  reference to the accusation of looting made against the missionaries  in China United States minister  Conger, who arrived here last night,  says: "The Americans have a  larger number of missionaries out  there than any other nation, and I  am frank "to say that under tho  circumstances there aro very few  things which the missionaries have  done, if any, for which there has  been any apology necessary. Tho  stories of their lootings are false, to  my knowledge." Speaking of the  siege Mr. < Conger said: '-It took  every white man we had to stand  by the guns. Without the missionaries the legation would not have  been saved, and without the native  Christians none of us would have  been saved. The missionaries were  not the prime cause of tbe trouble ;  they were only one of the causes.  Missionaries were not responsible  for the building of the railroad, or  for any other foreign innovations  against which the hatred of the  Boxers seemed to be directed."  Chicago, April 20.���A special to  the Record Herald, from San Francisco, gives the following expressions of Edwin H. Conger, with  reference to tho alleged looting by  missionaries and their colleagues in  Pekin: "Dr. Anient is the most  lied about man in China, unless it is  myself. The stories of looting by  missionaries, and their collecting indemnities by force, are absolutely  false. The missionaries acted with  nobility and heroism during the  Pekin siege, fighting bravely alongside the soldiers and the rest of us."  TELEPHONE 27  EEC.    HrHES&CO.  PAINTS, OILS AND GLASS.

London, ; April. 20.���Tho British  ministry have decided to make the  export-^duty on. coal proposed in  the, budget a party question. Sir  Michael IIicks-J3each has given  warning, that tlie tax will not be  abandoned. Mr. Balfour is equally  persistent, and the ministry is  clearly determined to stand or fall  on the coal dut3r. The government  is helped by dispatches from America stating that tlie duty does  not offer a sufficient margin for  enlarging.the exports of coal from  the United States.  Mr. Chamberlain in the house of  commons today said that the government did not propose to inaugurate a full scheme of civil administration in South Africa during sir  Alfred Milner's absence, which  would be of short duration. The  woi k of reorganization would proceed, however,' on the lines laid  down by sir Alfred, whose place as  British  high- commissioner would  for a speedy trial, his case will be  heard on Monday.  Professor Payne again held forth  at the opera house last night and  entertained a large audience, introducing such features as the human1  woodpile and the breaking of a 300-  pouud rock on the chest of a subject while under the influence of  hypnotism. Every muscle of the  subject o was rendered perfectly  rigid, enabling him to sustain the  weight and the shock incidental to  tho stroke of the hammer. There;  will be a matinee this afternoon at;  which special features will be introduced.  SECURE CONTROL OF LE ROI  ���New Syndicate Buys in.
