C, TUESDAY MORNING, APRIL 30,  1901  PRICE FIVE CENTS  1 GATHERING IN BOERS  SMALL SUCCESSES BEPOBTED AT  DIFFERENT POINTS.  Close Upon Two Hundred Are Beport-  ed by Lord Kitchener as Killed,  Wounded or Captured  London, April 29.���Lord Kitchener reports to the war oflice from  Pretoiia, under date of April 28, as  follows: Kitchener's - fighting  scouts, under general Grenfell, have  surprised aud captured Van Rens-  burg's laager at Klip Dam, north of  Pietersburg. Some Boers were  killed and thirty seven taken prisoners. Thirty - eight thousand  rounds of ammunition and all the  wagons, carts, oxen, horses and  mules were captured. Our only  casualty was one wounded. The  other column reports three killed,  5S taken prisoners, 57 surrendered,  and one quick firer captured.  London, April 29.���Another dispatch from lord Kitchener, dated  Pretoria, April .29th, says: "General  Blood has discovered at Rossenkaal,  South African republic government  documents, and a large number of  bank notes. Byng had a fight with  Boers on the Basiitoland border,  south of Wepener. and killed five.  At Lydenberg, twenty Boers ^ have  surrendered."  Cape Town, April 29.���A party  of Boers blew up tlie railroad between Graspan and Belmont, Cape  Colony, in three places, - on April  27th, apparently-with the intention  of interrupting a train carrying  Cecil Rhodes. The damage done  was .slight and was quickly repaired.         To Control Atlantic Transportation.  London, April 29.���The first step  in Lhe direction of the consolidation  of-some of the biggest transit and  "shipping-interests has-been .accomplished by the purchase, by J. Pierpont Morgan & Co., of the Leyland  line steamers. A deposit on" the  purchase money has been paid. The  purchase of the Leyland line is tantamount to its consolidation with  the Atlantic transportation. The  Leyland oilicials in confirming tho  sale, said the official statement  would'be issued tomorrow. It is  understood that the shareholders  will receive fourteen pounds ten  shillings for each ten-pound share.  The Leyland line, whose fleets will  thus pass into the control of Americans, is one of Great Britain's great  shipping institutions, and the result of the consolidation of the  steamship company with the largest  tonnage in the world.  .  Smith's Death Was Accidental.  ==^EoNDON^i5ril_29."^^The"coroner's  jury, which has been investigating  the death of Billy Smith, the Philadelphia fighter, who was fatally injured on April 22nd, at the National  Sporting Club by Jack Roberts in a  ���contesCfor the 120 pound championship of England, and who died  April 21th, today rendered a verdict of accidental death. The  coroner minutely examined the  club'oilicials and some disinterested  spectators of the contest. The  hospital surgeon, who atteuded  Smith, said that the appearance of  Ih-) pupils of the hitter's eyes disproved the story that he had been  drugged. Out of the thirty bouts  which have taken place at the  National Sporting Club this year,  this is the first in which a contestant has sustained serious injury.  American Cotton Shut Out.  Tacoma, April 29.���The steamship Copack brings^ news that tho  shipments of raw cotton from the  United States to the Orient will be  greatly affected by immense purchases of Bombay cotton just made  by the cotton spinners' union,, embracing the largest cotton manufacturers of Japan. Then* agents  have bought 250,000 bales to be  shipped within the next few months.  Of this quantity, the Nippon Yusen  Kushia will carry 100,000 bales at  twelve rupees a ton. Many manufacturers intend to mix Bombay  with American cotton,-while others  will, use the former exclusively. Ifc  is laid down in Japan cheaper than  American cotton.  Boers for Bermuda.  Hamilton, Bermuda, April 25.���  There is considerable excitement at  present in Bermuda over the ex  pected arrival of 1700 Boer prisoners. The British government has  leased Barrell's island, one of the  largest islands in the sound, and  within a quarter of mile of Warwickshire, for one year with the  option of relinquishing on a month's  notice. Tusker's island has also  been inspected, but up to April 24th  no definite settlement has been  made in regard to it. The army  officials are very reticent and nothing can be learned from them on  the subject. The blacksmiths of  the town have been sounded as to  their ability to construct several  hundred yards of iron fence, very  strong, close and high, with spike  points, and as the plans which one  or two have seen are said to be the  plans of one of the islands, very  little doubt is entertained as to the  object in view by the government.  REPORT OF CITY AUDITOR  SAVED BY PLUCKY FIREMEN  Sensational New York Fire.  New York, April 29.���With  splendid daring, at the risk of their  lives, two firemen today went into  a burning apartment house at No.  1712 Amsterdam avenue and rescued  two old women from what appeared  to be almost certain. death. -The  firemen were Matthew Cummiugs  and John McClair of Hook and  Ladder No. -23. The women rescued  were Mrs. Elizabeth Niver, 65, and  her sister, Mrs. Eliza" Moore, 80  years old. The fire was started by  children' on the top., floor playing  with matches.  Firemen Cummings and McClair  were told that the two women were  in the building and they made  desperate efforts to reach the fifth  floor by the regular stairway, but  the flames drove them back. They  then rushed up to^the fifth floor of  the next house and then over the  fire escape to the front windows of  No. 1712. McClair%waited outside  and Cummings went in on his hands  and knees through the dense smoke.  The crowd,below watched gilently  fur the firemen to reappear. - At  length McClair was- seen' to' -reach  in and take something from Cummings. . It was Mrs. Niver, who  had been found unconscious in the  kitchen. McClair hurried with her  to the , street, while Cummings  crawled back into the flames. Just  as the captain of the compauy was  ordering other men up to the rescue,  Cummings was a :en to stagger to  the wiudow carrying Mrs. Moore.  She was unconscious aud Cummings  was not far from it. The crowd  cheered like mad. when Cummings  made his way down to the street.  He soon went back with his comrades and fought the fire. Mrs.  Moore was burned so severely that  she had to be taken to a -hospital.  Her condition is serious on account  of her extreme age. ��� Mrs. Niver  was painfully scorched.  IMPRISONED MINERS SAVED  Three Will Probably Perish.  Aurora, Montana, April 29.���  Rescuers reached three of the five  miners, who had been entombed in  Rosebud mine since last Thursday,  at 2 o'clock yesterday morning.  Two were rescued alive, one was  found dead, and tlie other two- are  supposed to be lifeless. Grant  Shard had been mangled by falling  rocks and earth, and undoubtedly  died instantly. Faint taps on the  iron rails announced that two others  were still alive. They were William  Shane and George Foster. A large  boulder had Foster pinioned by the  foot, and in that position he had  remained for a day. He was nearly  famished when reached by the  workers, but was revived by the  aid of stimul.aits. The work of  saving him was tedious and risky,  as the drift was just large enough  for one man to. work in lying on his  side, clawing dirt back'.to another,  then another, until the whole  string had been passed. When  taken out it was discovered that  Foster had a crushed leg and foot,  but he will probably recover. At  10:10 a.m. the rescuers were near  William Shane, who wa3 pinioned  by the foot with a dead man underneath him, Shane was scarcely  able to talk. His arm is. broken,  and it is feared that he may lose  his mind. He was removed at 11  o'clock after an imprisonment of  sixty hours and fifty minutes. The  other two aro probably dead. Five  thousand persons were about the  shaft all day and night.  SUBMITTED    TO    THE    COUNCIL  LAST EVENING.  Proposition Bespecting Flour Mill for  Nelson Indefinitely Postponed as  Applicant Wants too Much.  There was a full attendance at  the meeting of the city council last  night, mayor Fletcher presiding.  The finance committee recommended a* number of payments,  whicli were approved and checks  ordered to be issued for same.  The auditpr presented his quarterly statement of receipts and disbursements to March 31st, showing :  Receipts Sl8.fti5 94  Expenditure   21.408 11  Kxcoss of expenditure ��2,530 17  Tlie outstanding accounts receivable on March 3lst were as follows :  Scavenger rates Sl^G 90  Real estate taxes : .  2,917 94  Sewer rentals  1,019 70  Electric light rates  2,324 37  Water rates ���  2,476 11  The rates paid in advance were :  Water.  Light..  81,178 75  2G25  Total '. 81.205 00  3 ~"I am unable to give the amount  outstanding for licenses," added the  report, "as with the present roll we  cannot have a corresponding ledger  account." The auditor complimented the staff on the system of  book-keeping, but recommended  several alterations.  Among the items in the detailed  statement were $709.50 for fire department maintenance and $514.00  for equipment, the latter amount  covering the expense of the team of  horses recently purchased; the  police department $892.00; and the  scavenger department.- $991.70. As  against the latter sum, however,  there were earnings amounting to  $1,129.63. Donations and subscriptions are set down at $1,469.60, and  debenture . interest .at $4,375.00.  Sewerage connections cost $1,100.27,;  electric-construction. $337.00, and  maintenance $1,303.79. As against  this the receipts from this source  were $4,838.50 for rates and $33.90  supplies sold.  The report was referred to the  finance committee.   -  B. Friel wrote acknowledging the  receipt of the city's letter of the  15th hist., aud undertaking that if  the council granted him the necessary site and water powea and  exempt him from taxation for ten  years, he would build and operate  a flour mill in Nelson with a capacity  of 100 barrels per day.  Alderman Paterson thought the  proposition rather indefinite. The  writer did not say what size of a  site he required.  Alderman Selous���He seems to bo  enlarging on the proposition. First  he wanted a mill^site and water"  power. Now he wants a graded  road and exemption from taxation  for ten years in addition.  Mayor Fletcher���He asks for a  mill site, with sheds, facilities for  railway tracks and exemption from  taxation.  Alderman Madden���That might  take an acre of land.  Mayor Fletcher���Next thing he'll  want is his passage paid to Nelsou.  Alderman Paterson���The matter  was referred to the board of works,  but we wanted something definite  from him.  Alderman Selous moved that the  writer be informed that it would  be necessary for him to discuss the  matter personally, but that the  council doubted if it would be  worth his while to come here, as his  terms were such that the council  could not comply with them.  This course was agreed to and  the clerk instructed to write Mr.  Friel accordingly.  The Kootenay " Electrie Supply  Company wrote asking for tbe privilege of tendering for supplies for  the extension of the service to the  fire hall.  A petition was read asking that  the Kootenay Lake Telephone Company be allowed to string a wire to  connect with the Methodist parsonage. There would be a big meeting  of the Epworth League in Nelson  on May Oth, and telephone service  would be very desirable.  Manager Hodge of the telephone  company said there were several  applications for new service, and  the compauy was unable to comply  because they were under orders to  remove their wires in certain districts. .  Alderman   Selous    thought   the  council had acted leniently with  the company in extending the time  for tho removal of the wires in outlying districts. There was an order  to have all the wires removed, and  the removal of those on Josephine  street was to be undertaken at  once.  Alderman Irving moved that permission be granted to mako the connection petitioned for. This was  seconded ' by alderman Hamilton  and agreed to.  J. Keith Reid wrote advocating  his scheme for installing power, but  the communication was tabled.  A number ��� of < applications were  read for sidewalks and sewers in different sections of the city, and re  ferred to the board of works.  The telephone question was again  raised by manager Hodge asking  for some definite ruling, when the  mayor pointed out that at any time  the council wished they could order  .the removal of '..the wires.0 The  matter was leffc in, the hands of the  mayor and superintendent of the  electric light service.  It was agreed to raise the sidewalk to curb level at the Houston  block, and - some routine business  having been transacted the council  adjourned.  CONVICT CAMERON   FLITS  Was Doing Time For Arson,  Vancouver, April 29.���[Special  to The Tribune.]���Cameron, convict  sentenced to six years for burning  the Columbia hotel, near Grand  Forks, escaped this morning from  Westminster," and at a late hour tonight has not been found.

The steamer Tees, from Skagway  tonight,   reports {.finding   an    unknown three "masted vessel on the  western   side. of^iQueen, Charlotte,  islands.       Death of Dennis Coughlin.  Dennis Coughlin, who for some  years has acted in the capacity of  bridge foreman for the C P. R.,  died at the general hospital last  night of pneumonia. Deceased has  worked in and about Nelson since  1892. He was a man about 36 years  of age, and came west with railway  construction from Eganville, Ontario. Up to Friday last he was engaged at building the cribwork on  the creek at the C. P. R depot, and  taking ill, was removed to the  hospital. A telegram to his friends  in the east was replied to yesterday  stating that one of them was starting by the next train for Nelson.  Nelson-Slocan Public',Works.  I-^tlie-provincial-iestimates tlie"  $25,300 set out for roads, "streets  and bridges for Nelson riding are  lumped up under the head of  general repairs and construction.

An Indian Missionary  Rev. father Eummelen, of the  Okanagan mission, is paying Nelson  a visit. He reports his Indian  charges are doing well, and havo  acquired the art of farming and  fruit growing to a degree even beyond his anticipation. The aborigines also raise some of the best  horses in the Kootenays, and are  second to none in the matter of  training, not alone for the saddle,  but for harness. His parishioners  are among the happiest and most  advanced of the Iudian tribes bf the  province.  NO SETTLEMENT IN SIGHT  Association Football.  A meeting of those interested in  Association football, will be held in  the Hume hotel tonight at 8 o'clock  to consider the question of  establishing a club to work under  these rules in Nelson, There was a  good organization of association  men last season, but they seem to  have disbanded, leaving the field to  the Rugby players. It is confidently expected that those favoring the  milder treatment of the ball will  .succeed in organizing tonight.  BOLTEBS   HAVE   NOT   BEGEIVED  CONCESSIONS. '  Another Government Caucus Was Held  Yesterday, But Like Others Was  Barren of Besult.  Victoria, April 29.���Finance  Minister Turner delivered his budget speech in the legislature this  afternoon. Contrary to expectations he made, no reference to the  government's railway policy, in  fact it is understood that he was  unable to, as although the caucus of  government members lasted until  two this afternoon, no arrangement  was arrived at with the bolting  members. He however stated that  this was probably the last time  that he would deliver the budget  speech. It is the thirteenth time  he has done so, being finance minister that many years, with a break  of but one year, and a member of  the legislature for fifteen years.  He is going to London as agent  general for the province.  Brigands as Emigrants.  Nkw York, April 29.���The Herald  says: "Italy is still making of the  United States a dumping ground  for her criminals and paupers. This  fact has been forcibly called .to the  attention of the local authorities by  the arrival at this port of three  Italian, brigands, whoso depredations made tliem a scourge to the  province in which they were reared.  These three outlaws who encountered no obstacle to bar them from  entering this country, are now in  Kansas City, Montana, whither  they went on ��� some mysterious-  mission of crime. Warning has  been sent- by police commissioner  Murphy to the Kansas City police  who now have the Italians under  strict surveillance. _ Commissioner  Murphy- learned that -wlien-the-outlaws concluded to visit the United  States they made terms with tbe  local authorities of their province,  and were* assured immunity from  arrest. 'Then they levied blackmail  upon the merchants who were more  than willing to contribute a travelling fund, As a result -the three  arrived in New York, appearing as  well to do immigrants.  Much Suffering in the North.  Port Townsbnd, April 29.���Jacob  Bush, who has spent three years in  Alaska, returned from Valdez on  the steamer' Senator today. Just  before sailing from Valdez for Juneau, Mr. Bush says, a courier arrived at Valdez from Sunrise City,  stating that a snowslide had occurred at that place on April 2nd,  in which twenty or more lives were  lost~ancl a number of_hbuses"buried"  beneath the snow and ice. The  courier leffc Sunrise City shortly  after the slide had occurred, and  could not give full particulars. Mr.  Bush says Valdez is crowded with  idle men who are anxiously awaiting the commencement of work on  on the government trail-to the interior, lie reports that the hospital  is full of sick men.  Algiers Has Its Boxers,  Ai.gikks, April 28.���It now appears that the revolt at Marguerite  was provoked by Hadji Denaisna, a  Ilarabout, who had preached the  extermination of foreigners. Many  of the inhabitants owed their  conveisioii to stimulated conversion  to Islamism. Sixty Arab rebel  prisoners have been brought here,  but no chiefs have been as yet  captured. The mayoi of Marengs  has appealed for troops, reporting  that armed bands of Arabs arc  descending upon the town, but the  government believes that they are  only fleeing from the pursuit of the  troops from Marguerite.  Longshoremen Strike in Quebec.  Qurciiix:, April 29.���The Quebec  ship laborers are out on strike. The  Great Northern railroad, which has  contract with Leyland line to ship  five million bushels of grain from  Quebec during the season, offered  the men twelve dollars a week. The  men refused and the company advertised for and secured about  eighty men. This morning while  they were at work three hundred  strikers appeared and ordered the  men out of hatches. They obeyed,  and the loading of the Belgian is  now at a standstill. The police  were   called out but as the non  union men all quit when asked to  do so, there was no trouble and the  services of police were not required.  The Quebec ship laborers organization is very strong financially, and  can put up a long fight.  Match Ended in a Fizzle.  Boston, April 29.���The first big  wrestling match for years in Boston,  ended iu a fizzle tonight to all appearances, though Harvey Parker,  of Brockton, was given the decision  over Ernest Roeber, the world's  champion at Graeco:Roman. The  decision had to be given as it was  because Roeber refused to continue  wrestling at the ��nd of the first  hour, claiming that his understanding was that an hour was the limit  for a bout if no falls were taken in  short time.  M'CLELLAND KNOCKED OUT  He Lasted Twenty Bounds.  Louisville, April 29.���Jack McClelland of Pittsburg, was knocked  out in the 20th round tonight by  Dave Sullivan of Brooklyn. ��� The  fight brought out one of the most  scientific and vicious ever seen in  Louisville, and when McClelland  got the knock out, niue out of ten  men in the house thought Sullivan  did not have steam enough to knock  out.a child. For a dozen rounds  the Pittsburg boy had inflicted the  severest punishment on him, and at  least four times the gong sent  Sullivan to his corner very weak  and groggy. Throughout, however,  he fought like a bull dog, and took  punishment that would have put  out many another fighter a dozen  times.  In the 20th both came up apparently fresh, McClelland led off  with a right swing/Sullivan clinched and stepped back upper cut  twice, then led a hard right which  sent McClelland to the floor for  eight seconds. McClelland got up  and clinched, Sullivan trying again  to get in the knockout blow. McClelland landed right and left lightly'L  Sullivan then upper cut him twice,  landed left, crossed with the right,  "and'"McClelland-~was���outr,-rfalh��fir-  heavily to--'.tbe floor, his head  striking first. Before the fight it  was announced that one month  from tonight Terry McGovern  would meet the winner of the  Sullivan-McClelland contest before  the Southern Athletic Club, under  whose auspices tonight's contest  occurred.   Belief at Last.  Henry Gallard died at the general  hospital last night. He was a man  of about 05 years of age who came  west some six months ago. Shortly  after his arrival in Nelson he was  stricken with bright's disease, and  was admitted to hospital. He has  since continued a patient at the  institution, but nothing could be  done to mitigate his sufferings,  from   which he  was  relieved last  CANNOT BLUFF DUNSMUIR  WILL   NOT   AMEND   HIS   BAIL-  WAY POLICY.  Says Four Per Cent Clause Gives Only  a Fair Beturn Upon Government's Assistance.  * -3-i��rtt*  '     ���      >V>-pi&__  Victoria, April 29.���[Special to  The Tribune.]���The political situation remains unchanged.   Premier  Dunsmuir is determined that the.'  railway subsidy bill shall be considered withoutany material change.  He says that four per cent of the .*  gross earnings is only a fair return"  on the amount advanced \>y the '  province to aid in building t ho five -  railways specified in the bill.   This  ex|>!p.-s=k��i from an owner and oper-  ator of railways should haveweight.  This is the one point in the bill that '  the people should throughly under- ;  stand, so   that   they may   iu  the '  future hold their representatives to .  strict account for their vote?.  The speeches on the budget to^ ���  day were wholly devoid of interest."  The fiuauce minister stated that he  would  probably retire from  office  at the end of the session, and Smith-  Curtis of Rossland delivered a sort  of semi-farewell, address ns if   he  had been in public life in British  Columbia for a number of years,  instead of a few months.    He with-"  out question imagines himself the  only great political factor in - the  province.  Tatlow also . made a declaration,  stating that he would hereafter be <  ",^g||  independent.

Mr.    Glynn   explained    that    the  negotiations  were incomplete, but  that only to this extent would  the  Leyland line be under the influence  of the American syndicate.     The  transfer,.said Mr.  Glynn,  concerns  the   company's    interests   in    the  American, Mexican and "West Indian  fleets, and Liverpool would not, at  least for a year or two, be affected  by the tenor of the shores.  ������wvwii�����S  night by death.

The vessel is  still in quarantine aud is being  fumigated.   A Prospectors' Union.  A movement is on foot in Nelson  to start a prospectors' union. The  prospectors claim that they should  have somewhat of a monopoly of  the work, seeing that they pay an  annual license. As to exploiting  the hills in search of minerals, they  enjoy all the latitude they seek, but  they contend that when assessment work is to be done they are  entitled to a first show. As the law  at present stands, $100 worth of  work must be done as a year's  assessment, and they state that unexperienced men cut prices and  scamp the work.  Another Big Bailway Bridge.  New York, April 29.���The Mail  aud Express has the following:  "The Mail and Express is authorized to state that the 0Pennsylvania  railway is behind the North River  Bridge company, which proposes to build a bridge across  "the Hudsoii river between 23rcT  street and the New Jersey shore.

This  he places at  150,000, and for  *���"   them lie provides a total expendi-  ;  " ture of $2,475,335.50, with an estimated   revenue    of    $2,140,751.05.  'This   by   some    figuring    can   be  -brought to show au expenditure of  if 16 per "head of the population, a  statement which will  probably remain unchallenged since it possesses  no particular merit.     It   is when  ���" the   revenue is reached, and politicians  commence  to   juggle  with  the   figures,   that    the    disparity  grows and the air becomes heated.  People who   are  quite  content to  divide the expenditure of the province by its population, and arrive  at its expenditure per capita, are  by no means prepared to arrive at  the taxation per capita in the same  way; and The Tribune will venture   to   predict   that during the  week the taxation per capita will  be variously stated at figures ranging from $4 to $71.   Those who are  interested   in   showing   provincial  taxation in  its most onerous light  will at   once divide the population  by five, to  arrive  more  closely at  the number of taxpayersin the prov-  ���ince.���Theurdividingthetotaln-eve-  nue by 30,000 taxpayers, they will  show that the people who pay taxes  pay at  the  rate   of $71 per head.  Just why politicans should make  taxpayers feel bad, by making their  burdens   seem   greater   than they  are, is something which has yet to  be satisfactorily explained. Against  this class, however, must be placed  tho optimist, who, to arrive at the  per capita tax, skims off the $117,-  051,05 which the province receives  from the federal exchequer, and  as  interest upon  sinking  funds;  also  the $1,103,100 received  from land,  timber und mineral concessions, as  well as  licenses of various kinds;  and   then   brings   out   the  direct  taxation at $590,000, which spread  over a population of 150,000 gives a  rate of $4 per head.     Thus  it will  be seen the very simple statement  of the finance minister, iu the hands  of   industrious   legislators, can  be  made to show that British Columbia,  has the most prodigal or the  most  economical       administration      iu  Canada; and the side of the house  the member is ou will very largely  determine the view he will take  of  provincial finances.  iucial revenue, or poll tax, is  $200,000, and .his estimate from  succession duties $100,000. This  does not suggest that the chief industry of the province is being  taxed to death. For every dollar  the mines pay, the wage-earners pay  two dollars and a half, and the  estates of the dead are called upon  to pay one dollar and twenty-five  cents. ,     -  The United States smelter and  lead trust, which a few weeks ago  was so anxious to rescue the silver-  lead mines of the Slocan from the  clutches of   tlie  Canadian' Pacific  Railway Company, and  force it to.  deliver ore at . its   smelters at   a  cheaper rate, has at last come out  in  its true colors, and  is'putting  the screws on the lead mines of the  western states which have no other  market for their lead ores than the  smelters controlled by the   trust.  The trust has the American mine-  owners by the throat, and it has  submitted new terms upon which  it will purchase their ores.   Under  these   tho   trust   lowers   the   settling     price     for     gold     values  and    increases    treatment   rates.  Here     is     a     specimen    of     the  treatment accorded the- producers  by the trust:���"Ore containing $30  " worth of mineral, aud paying $10  " per ton freight, will  be required  " to   pay   $17   per ton   treatment  " charges,   thus  leaving  the mine  " owner $3 per ton out of which to  " pay the cost of mining and in-  " terest   upon   investment."     This  emphasizes   the   necessity for immediate action on the part of the  federal government in tho matter  of granting some substantial bonus  upon the production of lead mined  smelted, and refined in  Canada,   if  the lead-miningJndjisjiryLj3f.British.  >���> Saturday    April  13th   was   the  third anniversary of the  B. C. Permanent Loan & Savings  Company  of Vancouver, B.C., and  the  financial   statement just   issued shows  that the assets of the company have  increased from $136,835 02 on April  13th, 1900 to $292,853.22 on April  13th, 1901.    This  is  a  remarkable  increase for theshortspaceof twelve  months.     Tho   subscribed    capital  has increased from one million to  one million five  hundred  thousand  dollars, and. mortgage  loans  from  $129,525   to   $203,175.      The  most  startling   increase has  beeu made  since January  1st of the present  year.   At that elate the assets were  $230,297.11   and   in   a   little oyer  three   months   have   increased   to  $292,853.22.    Duriug thelast twelve  months   the   permanent    paid   up  capital of the company has increased from $22,278 to $0S,367 and the  value of this class of stock has increased from $107 to $117 per share,  and a further advance is  expected  in a few days.   The   company has  active   agents working in all the  principal towns   and   cities   from  Victoria to Winnipeg and the demand for loans is so brisk that only  the choicest class of securities is accepted. During the past nine weeks  one hundred and four loans have  been granted amounting to $91,750  on improved   real estate valued at  $175,104, tlie loans averaging 52 per  cent of the value of the property,  and as every loan is repaid by fixed  monthly payments the  security is  absolutely safe.

WEST.BAKER STREET, NELSON.  In his estimate of revenue for the  ensuing year finance minister  Turner contemplates a revenue of  ��� $80,000 from the metalliferous mines  of the province, under the tax of  two per cent upon the value of their  output.   His estimate of the prov-  Columbia is to be protected from  extermination by a hostile trust;  aud also the importance of securing  satisfactory assurance that auy refinery or refineries so assisted shall  not become absorbed by the lead  trust or any kindered organization.  Will Not Make Any Changes.  London, April 20. ��� A representative delegation from the miners  of the United Kingdom met the  chancellor of the exchequer, sir  Michael Ilicks-Ueach today, and  asked for the withdrawal of the export tax on coal. The chancellor  replying, controverted the suggestion that the tax would injure  the export eoal trade. The tax, ho  said, would ultimately be paid by  the foreigners, and therefore the  collier owners could not pretend it  was necessary to reduce the miners'  wages ou that account. Many  South Wales miners are enjoy ing. a  holiday today as a protest against  the tax. Demonstrations took  place at various points.
