NELSON, B. C, WEDNESDAY MORNING,  APRIL 24,  1901  PRICE FIVE CENTS  a  NELSON  JOBBERS KICKING  AGAINST    EXPEESS    COMPANY'S  COMPETITION.  Surplus  Goods Shipped  Into  Nelson  aud Sloughed Off at Prices Local  '  Merchants Cannot Meet.  The wholesale houses of Nelson  are registering a vigorous kick  against the Dominion Express Company on the ground that the company is competing with them in  trade".  Tiie charge which the wholesale  men make against the express company is that it imports goods and  retails thorn���in fact it is in the  commission business, and enters  into competition with houses making this their particular field of  operation. The Dominion Express  Company, they complain, engages  in tliis branch of business and pays  no license for the right of so doing.  The company receives large consignments of . goods for sale and  peddles them around to retailers  for whatever they cau get���satisfied apparently if it can secure a  price sufficient to satisfy express  charges iu excess of the quotation  at which . the merchandise is received by it. - If the Dominion Ex-.  press Company is to stay in the  wholesale or. retail trade its rivals  would like to have the fact kuown;  - but if so, they assert that the company should pay into - the city  treasury $250 per . aiinum, the  license fee charged to persons selling goods in Nelson produced outside the city. ��� ...  This is the contention of the local wholesalers. Instances of tin-  . due interference - with local ,trade  are quoted-ngainst the express company. A few'days "ago the com-,  pany received"a"large - consignment  of eggs and sent a man out, tb procure a customer for them. He'was,  as usual, successful in his mission,  and whsn the -firm by whom  the' establishment alluded to  was - usually supplied, called  for its accustomed order, the fact  was announced that the express  company had supplied the want.  Twelve months' ago a similar  state of affairs existed and the merchants raised a protest. The result  was a temporary cessation of operations on the part of the express  company, but now it is said to have  entered into the wholesale trade  with renewed vigor. Tliis is the  story as told by the wholesalers and  jobbers.  A representative of The Tribune  yesterday called on Fred Smith,  the local manager of the Domin-  ^ionJSxpi'ess^Gompany.^and^asked-  for an explanation.- Mr. Smith did  not deny the case as above represented.  "It is true we receive goods," said  Mr. Smith, "and that we dispose of  them in the interests of the "company and the consignees."  "What is your margin of profit?"  was asked.  "We don't look for profit ou the  goods," was Mr. Smith's reply. "All  we ask is that the price'-we get is  sufficient to pay that fixed by the  party sending them, plus the freight  charges." '  "Who are the goods consigned  to ?" was asked.  "They come to this office," said  Mr. Smith, "and we try to sell them  for the parties concerned."  "And if you do not make a sale���  if they be perishable goods and are .  lost���who suffers the loss, the express company or the parties forwarding the goods?"  "The parties sending the goods,"  said the agent. "We don't take  the risk."  "But would you recover the  freight charges in case what you  receive as<security be rendered unsaleable by reason of being too long  on hands ?"  Mr. Smith.replied that the company wouid try to "do so. He  thought it rather an advantage to  the consumer that goods could be  supplied to retailers at a lower  figure than the wholesale houses  charge.  "The wholesalo houses incur some  risk in handling perishable goods.  You run no risk," was suggested.  To this Mr,  Smith said that  his  company was not in the  wholesale  trade,   and   simply    handled    the  goods to oblige customers.  The subject is one which will be  brought under the notice of the  board of trade at its next meeting.  The attention of the civic authorities has also been called to the fact  that the Dominion Express Company is doing business without a  trader's license.  Nelson's Business Blocks.  One of the largest and best  photographic pictures taken in  Nelson is now on exhibition in  several of -the local stores. It is by  WaddsBrothers, photographers, and  represents the Kirkpatrick-Wilson-  Clements block, corner' of Baker  and Ward streets. A score or more  of Nelson's prominent citizens are  "in the group," with the tram car  iu the distance and a general air of  prosperity which would do credit  to any business quarter in the  busiest and most populous cities in  the Dominion. So clear is -the  photograph in every detail that the  names of the different office holders  in the block are clearly discernable  on the window panes. The photograph is a work of art.

This Is Said to Be' the Basis for the  Withdrawal   of 10,000   French     ���  Troops.  Washington, April 23.���-It is  understood here that the Chinese  plenipotentaries at Pekin, prince  ���Ching and Li Hung Chang, are prepared to give a guarantee to the  powers for the protection of ' all  foreigners in China if the ^foreign  troops now stationed there are  withdrawn. This is understood to  be the.basis of the withdrawal of  10,000 French troops, and it jsj^arn:  estly hoped among Chinese officials  that this will be followed by a similar movement on the part of the  other foreign forces in China.  Pekin, April 23.���Many applications have been made to Mr.  Rockhill and general Chafee, by  Chinese of all degrees, for the .detention in China of the American  troops until the general withdrawal  of the troops of all the powers.  Many of those who are making this  request think the withdrawal of  the Americans will make the others  remain longer. There are also  people who do not desire to see any  of the soldiers go, fearing anarchy  and an uprising against foreigners.  Field marshal von Waldersee has  made application that the gate of  the forbidden city be guarded by  jGernian=troops=after=the^departure=  of the Americans. General Chafee  replied that American soldiers will  continue to guard the gate. At  this the Germans are indignant,  saying this impugns their honesty,  and that if the United States desires to do her share of policing the  city she should leave behind enough  troops for that purpose, that merely  a few men belonging to the legation  guard should control the gate that  would be within the German  quarters cannot fee allowed. If  general Chaffee, persists in this  course diplomatic representations  will be made in the matter. The  ministers of the foreign powers are  meeting daily. They do not at  present show a disposition to reduce  the claims, which many think to be  extremely reasonable.  The Father the Murderer.  Chartres, France, April 23.���  Suspicion in the brutal murder of  five children, which occurred here  yesterday, falls ,upon the father of  the murdered children. It is suggested that the father murdered his  children in a fit; of drunken madness. The knife' with which* the  slight wounds on the father were  made belongs to the house, and a  bloodstained jacket found on the  premises belongs to Briere, the  father of the murdered children.  Briere has been arrested.  Will Ensure for the Province^All the Advantage of Public Owner-  r m  ship Respecting Roads Built Under It.  Victoria, . April 23.���[Special to  The Tribune.]���The government today introduced by message a bill  defining its railway policy. The  bill authorizes the lieutenant-gov-  ernor-in-council to borrow any sum  not exceeding $5,000,000, to bear  interest at the rate of 3 1-2 per cent,  the money so' borrowed to be used  for the railway subsidies and the  construction of a bridge across the  Fraser river.  The railway subsidies will be in  aid of the construction of the following railways/in a sum not exceeding $4000 for each mile of railway, of the uniform gauge of four  feet eight and one-half inches, viz:  1. For a railway from the Coast,  in the neighborhood of English  Bluff, near Point Roberts, via Chilliwack and Hope, to Midway,  Boundary Creek district, approximately three .hundred and thirty  miles.  2. For a railway from the present terminus of 'the Esquiraalt &  Nanaimo railway to the northern  end of Vancouver island, approximately . two hundred and forty  miles.  3. For a railway from Rock  Creek to Vernon,' to connect' with  the Shuswap & Okanagan railway,  approximately one hundred and  twenty-five miles. - .  4. For "a railway from the Coast,  at Kilimat, to Hazelton, approximately one hundred miles,  5. For a railway from Fort Steel'  tdGolderi, approximately-'oiie hun-'  dred and fifty miles;.  Section 15 of the bill reads : "It  shall be lawful for the lieutenant-  governor-in-council to cause to be  built a bridge across the Fraser  river in the neighborhood of New  Westminster, at a cost not exceeding five hundred thousand dollars,  for the purposes of railway, vehicular and passenger traffic, and for  the purposes aforesaid to enter into  contracts for- the construction of  the said bridge as may be deemed  expedient, subject to submitting  same to pubicl competition, and  after.construction to enter into any  agreements that the lieutenant-  governor-in-council may deem expedient in connection with the user  of said bridge by any railway or  ' other companies, persons or firms,  with power to fix a tariff - of tolls."  Section 10 reads: "The lieutenant-  governor-in-council may enter into  all agreements with any persons or  company undertaking the construction of any railway to which a  subsidy is hereby attached, which  may be necessary or convenient for  the due construction and operation  of such railway, which agreements  shall, in every instance, in addition  to other matters therein provided  for, contain the following provisions,  viz :  (a) That unless work is commenced on the railways mentioned  in subsections a, b, c, d and e of  section 8 hereof .on or before the  first day of July, 1902, and is duly  and diligently "prosecuted to the,  satisfaction of the Iieutenant-gov-  ernor-in-conncil, all right and claim  to the aforesaid subsidy granted by  this act shall be cancelled and  forfeited.  . (b) That the aforesaid subsidy  shall not be payable until the railway is completed ,and in running  order, to the satisfaction of the  lieutenant-governor-in-council, nor  until security or guarantees, satisfactory to" the lieutenant-governor-  in-council, is .deposited for the  continuous maintenance and operation of' the railway, and no subsidy shall be payable or-paid until  after such completion, and the  giving of such security or guarantee.  (c) That four per cent per annum  of the gross-earnitfgs of the railway"  shall be paid to the province, and  such sums of four per cent shall be'  a first charge upon such gross  earnings.  (d) -That the railway obtaining  the benefit of any such subsidy  shall be constructed wholly and as a  continuous line within the province.  (e) That the lieutenant-governor-  in-council shall have absolute control of the freight and passenger  rates or the charges by the railway  and that, notwithstanding in" the  event of the railway being or becoming subject to the jurisdiction  of the Dominion government, the  same shall be deemed a contract between the province and the company.  (f) That the railway may. be ac-  [ quired at any time by .the province  at a valuation to be determined by  arbitration under the provisions of  Arbitration Act, provided, however,  that in considering the valuation  no sum shall be entertained by the  arbitrators for the franchise belonging to the company.  (g) That the conditions of this  section may be varied at any time,  and from time to time, and as often  as the lieutenant-governor-in-council may deem advisable, always provided that control of the. subject  matters referred to in this section  by the government of British Columbia be not abrogated."  (h) That in the event of a charter  being granted by the Dominion  government for a line of railway  over or parallel to the route proposed in this act, that the foregoing  conditions shall, be assumed and  carried out by thie company so incorporated as a "contract and obligation of said company prior to  any other charge thereon.    '  (i) That such terms . and conditions for the proper carrying out  of all the clauses of any such agree-  mentand penalties and forfeitures  to arise upon failure of the railway  in respect thereof shall be imposed  as the lieuteriant-governor-in-coun-  cil may deem advisable.  .(j) That such other terms and  conditions may be imposed as the  lieutenant-governor-in-council may  deem- advisable.���'- *' / ���  - From^ the above it will be seen  that a long step iri the direction "of,  government control and ownership  of railways is made. The bridge at  New Westminster is to be owned  by the government, and ��� the rates  on all the railways bonused are to  be controlled by the government,  and a percentage of the gross earnings paid into the provincial treasury.  This bill will be opposed, so it is  rumored, by McPhillips and Helme-  ken of Victoria, Garden arid Tatlow  of Vancouver, Murphy of West  Yale, and Hayward of Esquimalt,  who, at this" session, are strongly  auti-C. P. R. and as strongly pro-  Jim Hill. The Opposition will also  no doubt oppose it.  Night sessions commenced tonight.  Marine Engineers Hopeful.  Cleveland, April, 23.���A revised  wage scale was today submitted to  to the officials of the; United States  Steel Corporation vessel interests  by the executive committee of the  Marine Engineer's Association. The  scale is now under consideration by  the steel company, and it is generally believed will be accepted.  MA��OR=Pl^rS-ON-FINANGE  Why Sandon Is in the Hole.  Mayor Pitts of Sandon was in  town yesterday. His worship is  about to sever his connection with  the city under the hills and locate  in the Similkameen country, at what  particular point he will not say.  The calendar of Sandon now reads  from the date of the recent fire, and  a sad story it tells. In speaking of  the municipal finances mayor Pitts  said :' "The chief _ source of revenue  is from liquor and traders' licenses,  which amounts to about $0000 per  annum, and real estate, which enriches the treasury to the extent of  some $3000. However, since the fire,  the whole aspect has been changed.  The city was swept by flames, and  among other important things  that were destroyed was the  assessment roll and all the public  books and accounts, A sum of $10,-  000 was subscribed by way of relief  fund for the fire sufferers, and with  this, their only available asset, the  work of reconstruction was begun.  Immediate wants having been supplied, the surplus..was applied to  clearing up the townsite and the  laying of sidewalks in the newly  platted city. The rebuilding of the  flume ran away with $2000 of this,  and the sidewalks with $1000.  Then there was nothing left���only  the mayor and board ofalderirien���  and their job was a very unenviable  one. They had to start anew, with  nothing in the treasury, and a fire-  swept waste to reorganize. J. M.  Harris.the townsite owner,had some  sidewalk built, but the main cost of  the work has to be done by the  ratepayers.   Debentures to the ex  tent of_$15?000 have been issued,  butTthislias been swallowed up in  necessary work. The city has been  run most economically, the clerk  and police magistrate offices combined receiving but $85 per month,  the chief of police a like sum and  the chief of the fire department, who also acts as policeman, $100. A new assessment  is being made, which will show a  substantial increase on the old one,  seeing that a better class of buildings are going up. But with the  fire went all the books of the corporation, so that outstanding accounts had to be wiped out, which  left the corporation in pretty bad  shape.        ������ ��� ���   ' .  Trespassers Will Be Prosecuted.  H. Watts, an expressman, was  yesterday summoned before magistrate Crease charged with allowing  his team of horses, to wander on .the  public thoroughfares, not having  any person in charge. There is no  pound in Nelson, but there is a  powerless pound, so that wandering  animals have no check, on their  depredations. Tlie owner of the  offenders iu this case was fined $10  and costs, which it is hoped will be  a warning to others.  Suspicious, of Japan.  Yokohama, April 23.���Korea, it  is understood, will pay Japan the  million yen still owing, out of the  new French loan of five million yen  incurred for railroad building. The  Japanese newspapers suspect Russia  has had a hand in the French loan,  regardless of the convention qf 189(5  by which Russia and Japan should  jointly lend money to Korea if  necessary. The Korean foreign  minister appears to have been ignorant of the loan negotiations  until the last moment.  THE COFF-BURNS CONTEST  Date Not Yet Fixed.  The Nelson Athletic Club has perfected arrangements for a boxing  coritest between Charles Goff and  James Burns of Rossland, and has  posted $000 with The Tribune to  cover expenses in connection with  the affair. The date for the contest has not yet been fixed, but it  will be on or about May 10th. The  contest is to be limited to twenty  rounds, and as the men are said to  be handy a good exhibition may be  expected. The Nelson Athletic  Club has made arrangements with  the Canadian Pacific Railway'.Company for reduced fares from all  local points, and a special train will  be run from Rossland to accommodate the Rosslanders who desire  to see the go. -.^ ���  A Dishonest Hungarian.  Police constable Black yesterday  brought over from New Denver a  young Hungarian named Rubenez,  who confesses to having raised a  check on a local merchant from $7  to ��17. The fraud was very clumsily executed . and was readily detected. Rubenez is a young fellow  of not more than 18 years of age,  and has been employed on railway  construction. - He expresses his desire for a speedy trial, and will be  accommodated.  Caught in the Storm.  A crew of the Nelson Boat Club  were having a spin in one of the  racing boats yesterday, when they  were overtaken by the storm and  obliged to put ashore at Five-mile  point. As the water was too rough  to launch their craft again, they  simply   beached   her and took to  their heels, making Nelson in time  that would do credit to professional  sprinters. They had left their  coats and vests in the boathouse,  and were obliged to make town in  shirt-sleeves.  Salvation Army Social Work,  Ensign Andrews, engaged in Salvation Army social worki is paying  Nelson a visit, and last night conducted a very successful-meeting at  the barracks. He is promoting  what in army phraseology is known  as grace-before-meat box work, but  to ordinary mortals the proposition  is one to introduce collecting boxes  and to collect therefrom, the donations of a generous public. Several  of these boxes have been placed in  Nelson and have, within the past  three months', enriched the army  treasury to the extent ot $20, which  the ensign says is phenomenal for a  city, of Nelson's population. It was  announced last night that the children's annual demonstration would  be held on Monday evening, and for  the occasion a varied and select  program has been arranged.  DEMAND FOUR MORE HEADS  HE IS A MATRIMONIAL COUNT  WIVES EANOE BETWEEN  FIFTY  AND ONE HUNDRED,  Son of a  Belgium Nobleman in the.  Toils at New York Charged  With Bigamy.  ADDITIONAL OFFENDEBS NAMED  BY  THE  POWERS.  German   Correspondent   Says   Boxers  ,_ Are Preparing for Fresh Uprisings in Southern Pe Chi Li.  . New York, April 23.���A Herald  dispatch- from Pekin says:.-"The  ministers of England, France, America, Holland, Belgium and Italy, to  whom the question of provincial  punishment was assigned, have submitted a report to, the diplomatic  corps that they demand fourmore  beheadings, and the.punishment by  exile and degradation of eighty  ^more-officials.,.; The demand was  .immediately sent by the "diplomatic  corps to the .Chinese plenipotentiaries. '-'.     _.   ._      .    "  Berlin, April 23.���The Cologne  Volks ,Zeiturig prints correspondence from a German missionary in  China, which says that in southern  Pei Chi Li the Boxers are preparing  for another uprising,, especially in  :the districts of Kuang Ping Fu and  Nai.Ming Fu, where the .population  sympathizes with the Boxers because of the famine there. The  population persistently disregards  decrees issued by the authorities.  Referring to Yu Hsuin, the former  governor of Shan Si, the correspondent says emperor Kwang Su  was fully informed on the subject  of Yu Hsuin's murders of foreigners, and ordered the provincial  judge at Kan Su to decapitate Yu  Hsien, who has since fled and disappeared.���  ,���������-^==  A Stabbing Affray in Nelson.  There was a rather serious stabbing affray in Nelson a couple of  days ago which has not yet received  the attention of the police magistrate. A number of boys were in a  boat on Sunday, while other kindred  spirits were ashore. Those on terra  firma made a target of their friends  in the boat, and several stones took  effect. The oarsmen pulled ashore  and at once proceeded to administer  a wholesome chastisement to their  wanton assailants. In the melee a  knife was drawn by a lad named  Crossett and used effectively upon  an associate named Howell, who received some half-dozen stabs, none  of Which were of any serious  moment. Young Crossett has been  in the hands of the police before���  the charge being the stealth of a  sum of money from a drunken man.  On that occasion he refunded the  stolen cash and was let off with a  caution. *  -   Nelson Quoit Club.  The final game of the first draw  in the button series was played  yesterday between J. H. Wallace  and W. Telford, resulting in favor  of the latter by a score of 31 to 28.  Owing to unfavorable weather only  oue game has been played in the  second draw, Purdy defeating  George Thompson by a score of 31  to 13. All members aro expected  to playoff their games in the second  draw as soon as possible.  Looking for the Assassin.  Berlin, April 23.���Emperor William regards the news of the plot  against his life as Tartar news, but  he approves of the comprehensive  steps now taken to forestall the  alleged plotters.   The empress saw  New   York, April 23.���A   man  who called himself count Leo de  Melville, who is said to be known '  also as Leo Talquin, was arrested ,  here on Friday night last at the  request of the Chicago police.     He  was arraigned before a magistrate  on Sunday aud was remanded until  today. A Chicago detective searched  this   city   today   with requisition  papers, in which the man is said to  be wanted iu Chicago for bigamy. -  The   New   York   police   say.   the  prisoner was employed as-a waiter-.'  under the name of Talquin.  Chicago, April 23.���Count Leopold de Melville, otherwise known  as Leo Talquin, is held by the New  York police on the charge of bigamy''  sworn to by a brother of one of his ":  Chicago   wives.   - His   arrest   has',  brought   to   light   in this   city a-  romance   whose unfolding  reveals  the count as a hero of more than  one hundred love affairs.   He is declared to be the husband of   an  assortment of wives who number a  recently deserted��� wive in Chicago,,  estimated last night at "fifty or so." V  As   a duellist on   many a blood-,  stained  field  of honor  in  Europe,- <���*  the count became celebrated nearly;  a generation ago.   His duels were ^  always  fought   for love, and the  '  wounds received in the onsets he '���  probably ��� bears , on   his  face arid'-"-  body.  , He at last broke altogether ^  with his father, a nobleman high in .  the court arjd councils of the king "'  of    Belgium,   and   came   to   this '  country.  '. Sucli was this narrative rendered  last evening at his residence in this  city "by Mrs. Hannah Hensonde -  Melville, who- married count de  Melville on August 21st, 1900, aud  lived with him until about three '  weeks ago. .A- few days bef ore-  April 1st the count eloped with a-  young woman from Riverdale,  whom it is alleged he married in  this state and then took with him  to New York. Within a few days  of the elopement the young lady's  brother discovered that de Melville  had a wife in Chicago���Mrs. Hannah de Melville���with whom he had  been living at the time of the elopement. His sister in New York was  made acquainted with her brother's  discovery. There was a scene be-  tweenJihelelouers. after whicli the _  "ill  Iff  f  r   ��   *J.i  '- -4 r  ";.�����  %  ~-'Xf.-.\\  - Mil  �� rrs'l  *���   r i**   ���  .   .��^j-i  ���-Jftl  young woman returned to Chicago.  When placed under arrest in New  York the count was reported to  have told detective Burke that he  had so many wives that he had not  been able to keep track of their  different names and could form no  idea as to their realnumber.  To make such an admission, the  countess thinks, would have beeu  unlike the count, who is said to be  habitually cautious and taciturn  in dealing with strangers. But she  freely vowed that in her opinion  he had several wives living, and  added that she would not be surprised if the number should be  found to reach fifty. With this  latter number to his credit the  count would be found to have  thrown into the shade the records  of the two most celebrated Chicago  bigamists, Bates and Farnsworth,  siuce Bates was able to muster only  five at his trial, and Farnsworth  about the same number, although  Farnsworth told the police here  that the number of his living wives  here was forty-two. Before the  end of the week the count will be  brought to Chicago to face his  accusers.  .  Sandon Picking Up.  Recent arrivals from Sandon report that business is picking up in  that city owing to renewed activity  in the mines. Tlie Slocan Star is  now working 130 men, and turning  outsome good ore. The Wonderful,  which has been idle for twelve  months, has again resumed operations, and the American Boy is going full blast. At the Reco the  showing is reported to be better  than ever, and a busy season's work  is looked for. There is said to be  an all-round improvement in the  camp.  - THE  TRIBUNE:  NELSON, B.

These things  are not soon foi gotten, and the oflicers of the board of health should  not be impatient, if, having changed  its spots, the people of the interior  for a time continue suspicious of an  organization which they know best  as a political engine masquerading  as a board of health.  Baker   Street,  Nelson.  The Dunsmuir government's railway policy, which was transmitted  to the legislature by message yesterday, will take'British Columbia  farther along the road to government ownership of railways than  any of the  other Canadian prov-  ��� inces.    It is a policy designed to  ��� promote legitimate railway construction through, districts in which  ���    the demand for railways  suggests  the probability of their ultimate  ��� successful operation after they are  built, and as such will commend  itself to all save the salaried shout-  . ers of railway bonus hunters. By  it the government provides liberal  assistance for such lines of railway  ' as the present requirements of the  province seem  to demand, and in  . return for such assistance it stipu-  ��� lates  that  it  shall  have   absolute  " control of the freight and passenger rates, and also receive four per  cent upon the gross earnings of the  . road. " When .it    is'  remembered  -��� that transportation  companies ai e  , essentially   monopolistic   in   their  ,' nature, the importance of govern-  , ment    control    of    transportation  rates becomes  obvious if the systems in question are to be operated  ;' with any regard to public interest;  ' nor can'it be shown that a govern-  . ment, representative of the people  of the province, would be  more in-  ��� clined to deal harshly with the  transportation company accepting  public assistance, than  would the  . officers of such company deal with  the people of the province iu fixing  the rates they should pay for the  use of their state-aided railway. As  ,   to   the   government's proposal  to  ^_take_four_per cent upon the gross  '   earnings  of such state-aided  rail-  ' ways, it is worthy of note that all  of the objection comes from the  men who are boosting Jim Hill's  railway enterprises. No doubt it  ���would please Mr. Hill beyond measure to take from the government of  British   Columbia $1,320,000, as a  .. cash bonus for the building  . of his projected railway from  Midway to the Coast, without conditions of any kind, but the desires  of Mr. Hill must be subordinated to  those of the people of the province.'  He is not the only railway builder  in the province, and if the terms  proposed by the government of the  province are not acceptable to him  he is under no necessity to accept  them. In the railway programme  outlined by tbe government that  portion in which Mr. Hill appears  cuts a comparatively small figure,  : and it is up to him to do business  upon a business basis or quit.  British Columbia is tired of being  gold-bricked by charter mongers  and speculators, and its people will  welcome the new railway policy of  the government from one end of  the province to the other.  The Dominion blue book dealing  with tlie last general elections furnishes much interesting information concerning the voting strength  of the several provinces and their  representation in the federal parliament. If the vote cast may be  taken as a fair approximate of the  yoting strength of the respective  provinces, the most striking feature  of the government return is the excessive representation of Quebec as  compared with every other province in the Dominion save Prince  Edward' Island. Whether or not  there were local conditions which  accounted for a light vote throughout the province of Quebec, the  fact stands out that, based upon actual voting, the other "provinces  would be entitled to increased representation aggregating 44 seats, or  close upon GO per cent of the entire  representation of the French province. With five elections by acclamation���three in Ontario, two  in Quebec and one in New Brunswick���there were all told just 952,-  496 votes cast, or an increase of  110,896 over the votes cast in the  preceeding contest. The vote by  provinces was:  Ontario 426,083  Quebec 237,239  Nova Scotia .< 107,836  New Brunswick  G8.3I!)  Prince Edward Island "  21,129  Manitoba :  41,789  Hri' ish Columbia  20,451  Northwo t Territories  23,018  ' These figures show that, with  three elections by acclamation in  Ontario, as against two in Quebec,  the premier province polled 4631  votes ��� for each of its 92 members,  as against 3050 votes in Quebec for  each of its 65 members. The votes  throughout the other provinces per  member were: Nova Scotia 5391,  New Brunswick, with one uncontested election, 4882, Prince Edward  Island 4261, Manitoba 5969) British  Columbia 4408, and the Territories  5904, Based upon the vote cast  these figures would entitle Ontario  to twenty-four additional members,  Nova Scotia to nine, New Brunswick to four, Manitoba to four,  British Columbia to one, and the  ~TeTritories_to_two7 It musfbelcoii^  fessed that the showing made by  British Columbia does not come up  to what was expected of it, but the  fact that two out of the six seats  in the province were contested  some weeks after the general result  was known no doubt tended to keep  the total vote down to lower figures  thau would have been attained had.  all the contests taken place at the  samo time.   Dr. Pagan of the provincial  board of health does not like the  manner in which the Nelson papers  have criticised his actions as secretary of the health board. The  doctor demands a triple-headed  apology from the Nelson Miner,  while the correction of The Tribune's article is left to the finer feelings of.the editor of this great family journal. ^  Dr. Fagan may be all right as a  provincial health officer, but the  people of Nelson have no confidence  in the board whose servant he is,  and its secretary can please Nelson  best by confining his meddling in  health matters to other portions of  the province. From the time of  its inception there has been friction between Nelson's people and  the health board, and recent experiences have not tended to remove it. Nor is this difficult to  understand, when it is remembered  that the board was created chiefly  for the purpose of discrediting the  political opponents in Victoria of J  Just 500 More Chinese.  Victoria, April 23.���The steamer  Empress of China, due tomorrow  from China and Japan, has on board  500 Chinamen. To guarantee ttie  head tax of $100 on each, the  C. P. R., owners of the steamer,  have deposited with the ��� Dominion  government $50,000. For each  Chinaman who can prove he was in  Canada before, $100 of this amount  will be returned to the company.  This is the first large crowd of  Chinamen to arrive since the head  tax was increased. Some of them  are bound for Mexico, and no.doubt  many will make their way to the  United States.  Government Elevators   for ; Montreal.  Montreal, April 23.���The harbor board has received a telegram  this morning from Ottawa saying  the government was prepared to  loan the board one million dollars,  at 3| per cent, interest, for the  erection of elevators. The government refused to guarantee the issue  of three-quarters of a million  dollars bonds for the erection of  elevators by Wolvin, of Duluth,  but' .offered the money for the  board to build elevators. The  board met and accepted the offer.  Two elevators are to be started as.  soon.as the plans can  be prepared.  . 0" .00 . 00 .00 . 00 .  aiiniixixiini��xiiixxxniiiri:c  LADIES' SAILORS  SPECIAL  PRICE 50c.  ^XXIXXIXIIIXIXr-VIXITXIIXXTIITXrCXXXXt  Co.  36 Bakep Street, Nelson.  xxxxxxixxxxxixxixxxxstxxxxxxxxix:  SUMMER CORSETS  SPECIAL PRICE  35c.  and 50c,  xxxxxxxxxxzxxxrxxxxioxxxxxxxxxxxrxx  to  to  to  = to  L       Special two day's sale.

O  CITY LOCAL NEWS  The remains of the late Harry  Flanagan were yesterday interred.  All attempts to communicate with  his friends in the east failed.  There were two drunks before  police magistrate Crease yesterday  morning, and a fine of $5 and costs  was imposed in each case, with  the alternative of one month's imprisonment.  A regular northwest blizzard held  sway in Nelson yesterday afternoon for half an hour. The wind*  blew high aud low, the rain fell  charged with snow, and trafiic to  and fro, it ceased; pedestrians  shelter sought, who mackintoshes  bought, that they should not be  caught, and fleeced.  Professor Payne, the hypnotist,  will open a three nights' engagement at the opera house tomorrow  night under the auspices of the fire  brigade. The professor invites professional and representative men  on the platform so.as to prove the  genuineness of the performance.  Ohio Strikers Win.  COLUMHUS,   Ohio,   April    23.���A  /strike of 2500 miners over the dead  work scale in Ohio sub-district No.  75, which commenced yesterday was  practically ended by the signing of  the miners' scale by Schenick & Co.  of Bellaire, Belmont county, today.  This action it is believed will be  followed by the other operators  along the Ohio river.  Plenty of Money Offering.  London, April 23.���Applications  for the new war loan continue to  pour into the Bank of. England.  The subscribers today though numerous, were mainly small investors.  It is estimated that the loan was  subscribed for six or seven times (  over, and it is expected that the  list will be closed tomorrow as it is  not desired to lock up too much  money. Iu the house of commons  today various members sharply  criticized the budget increase of  the income tax, and tlie chancellor  of the exchequer, sir Michael Hicks-  Beach, replied that more money  must be raised somehow. None of  the objections suggested a better  way. He hoped that the additional  taxation might bring home to the  country the virtues of economy.  The income tax resolution was  adopted by 30(5 to 88 votes.  St. Petersburg, April 23.���The  universities were reopened yesterday. With the permission of the  minister of public instruction, general Vannovski, the students held a  meeting, and after a four hour's debate adopted the following resolution by a vote of 1501 to 228: "The  students, confiding ih the government's benevolent intention, and  desiring to give time to accomplish  necessary reforms, resolve to beg  the ministers not to - begin lectures  in the spring, and therefore the examinations in the autumn, when  they could be attended by comrades  who are now excluded; because, in  the contrary event, difficulties  might arise in the universities  whicli we wish to avoid."  The students were entirely alone  except for the presence of the chief  Beadle. Ten addresses were made,  most of them moderate and the  temper- of the meeting was distinctly conservative. The meeting  in a certain sense, was a continuation of that held Saturday, ,the  same students presiding.but the more  radical resolutions adopted Saturday  were not accepted.

One of the speakers yesterday related a conversation he had had on  Sunday with senator Aescbaninoif,  and the new assistant minister  Meshcauinoff, who had emphasized  the statement that the government  could not receive categorical demands from the students, but had  expressed the belief that if the  students behaved moderately the  absentees would be recalled during  the summer.

Little Rock, Arkansas, April 23.  ���It is stated that over $3000 was  secured in the hold-up of the Choctaw, Oklahoma, & Gulf passeuger  train last night near Iron Mountain  crossing, four and one half 'miles  west of Memphis. The train reached  Little Roek half an hour late, at 0  o'clock this morning. Sidney Drew,  the negro porter, who was shot by  the band its j was taken to the St.  Vincent's hospital, where his wound  was dressed. His condition is serious. O. T. Meader, the express  messenger, was badly beaten over  the ��� head and shoulders with a  pistol, but was.able to continue his  run. The . passengers were not  molested.  Six masked men boarded the  train at Bridge Junction, half a  -mile west of Iron Mountain crossing. Messenger Meader started to  pass from the first car to the second,  when he was confronted by four  men, in whose hands were two  revolvers and two shotguns. Oue  of the gang grappled with Meader  and secured the pistol he carried in  the belt around his waist.  About this time the train began  to slow up, aud soon came to a full  stop. Then the shooting began.  The two men who had boarded the  rear of the. second car captured Sid-  new Drew, the porter, and made  him uncouple the cars. Under orders from two of the men who had  mounted tho cab, engineer Johnson  pulled the two baggage and express  cars about a -,mile away from the  train. '   '  When the engine stopped, George  Ward, a boy,, who had beeu riding  on the blind Jbaggago, car, sprang  off, aud started into the woods. A  shot from one of the robbers brought  him back to. the train. 'Open the  local ,safo)(or we will kill you,"  shouted the leader of the gang to  the messenger. The messenger  obeyed, and one of them placed the  contents of the local safe in a sack.  "Now you and the kid get into the  car ahead," was the order. Meader  did'not seem to move fast enough  to suit the bandit, who had him in  charge, and he - fell upon Meader  with the but end of a revolver, with  which the express messenger was  severely beaten over the head and  back.  The boy,frightened almost.out of  his senses, cowered in the corner of  the car aud was not attacked.  Meanwhile four of the gang were at  work on. the through safe in the  second car. About a pint of nitroglycerine was poured into the ed ges  of the. door.... When everything  was ready, a fuse was lighted and  all left the car. A terrible explosion followed.
