C, MONDAY MORNING, MAY G,  1001  PRICE FIVE CENTS  CRANBROOK VERSUS NELSON  AN   EXCITING   FOOTBALL   GAME  PLAYED YESTERDAY.  Visitors Defeated, by Eleven to Five,  but Kicked Rugby Fair  and Square.  The return game between Cranbrook and Nelson was played yesterday under favorable circumstances. The weather was all that  could be desired, the attendance  was large and enthusiastic and the  players were in good form. Saturday was the origiual fixture for the  match, but owing to a few hours'  delay in making steamboat connections fche Cranbrook men did not  arriv6 in time, so that the contest  was reluctantly postponed until  yesterday. The constitution of the  team is pretty much the same as  when the players last faced the  ball in the East Kootenay burg a  few weeks ago. On that occasion,  however, they had befcter ground  to work over, with the result tliat  very little blood was observed to  flow. Yesterday the ground was  dry and hard, aud almost every  fall meant at least a skin abrasion.  Sticking plaster was in great requisition and tlie services of the medical men among^the spectators^ were  more than once called upon. Hut  there was nothing very serious in  the accident line, and nob one of  the players was knocked out. True,  there were cases of shattered teeth  und the infliction of accidental  wonuds which under other circumstances might be accepted as bad  conduct marks. In football undor  . fche Rugby rules everything goes,  und the man who enters fche contest knows what he has to expect.  Of fche two teams, the Nelson men  certainly, had tho advantage of  weight and in a scrimmage tliis  counts.- Thoy also' showed befcter  combination- work.. The game  started punctually at S-.'iO, and  Cranbrook winning the toss, played  against the sun. The teams lined  up as follows:  Cranbrook���Full-back, A 13 Feu-'  wick; three-quarters, P. Herehimer,  N. A. Wallinger, M. A. Beale, T.  Fen wick; half-backs, M. J. McDonald, II. IJ. Haines; forward-!, M.  M. Robinson, A'. K. Watt, M. B. Edwards, A. C. McDonald, It. Wilii-  mott, Quille and Holmes.  Nelsou ��� Full-back, F. Lynes ;  three-quarters, W. R. Seatle, O.  Nase, F. A. Macrae, A. Jeffs; halfbacks, G. C. llodge, F. Pui leu; forwards, E. V. Thompson. A. V. Ma-  ��� sou, A. F. Sargeant, T. II. Forbes; C  . B.   Winter,   G.   Sbillwell,   aud II.  Houston.   Ffoin-the-moment- tho-ball���was -  set in motion the home team showed  a lively pace aud gave the Cran-  brooks to understand that if they  were to win, the battle would be a  tough one. After some very pretty  passing between the Nelson three-  quarters, Macrae secured a try, but  the place kick failed. From this  point Cranbrook began to stir up,  and a more evenly contested game  was the result. With the visitors  working the ball up the ground,  Beale secured ifc from a scrimmage  and put a line :fcry which Avas converted into a goal amid loud applause. Just before half-time tho  Nelson threesuarfcers again gofc in  some good work, whieh ended with  Nase securing a second try, but the  kick was once more a failure.  In the second half Cranbrook appeared to tire, and the Nelson men  had it pretty much their own way,  Cranbrook defending but never  looking daiigerous. For a long  time, however, they managed to  keep their own line uncrossed until  from a dribble, by the forwards  Houston secured a third try. The  place kick was taken by Lynes, and  ���although at a very difficult angle,  he sent the ball home, thus giving  Nelson tlie victory���11 to 5, on 1  goal and 2 tries to 1 goal.  Cranbrook played well but their  forwards worked badly iu the  scrimmage and failed to gain control  of the ball, while the Nelson men  "heeled" out, aud were well supported. Macrae and Nase did  splendid work for the home team,  and Wallinger and Beale for the  visitors.   _��� .  Saratoga Lake Disaster.  Ballston, New York, May 5.���  Farquhar McLennan, aged 24, and  Charles  M,   Arnold, aged 17, em  ployees of the Idlewild Paper mill,  were  drowned   Saturday in  Saratoga lake four miles east of this village.   The two left their homes in  this village early in the morning to  spend the forenoon fishing.   They  rode   their wheels   to the lake and  procured   a boat from J. J. Hay-  ward.   They went   on   the  water  about 8 a. m. and that was the last  seen of them alive.   About 4 p. m.  Harry Earle and Beecher Saunders,  lads from  this village, discovered a  large flatboat bottom upward about  a quarter of a mile out from Stony  point apparently anchored.   They  informed Hayward and he   recognized it as the boat Arnold aud McLennan had taken. Search was then  made   by dragging  the  lake  and  about 10:30 p.m.  McLennan's  body  was recovered.     Search with grap-  ling hooks was continued for Arnold's body until  noon today without success.    The waves were then  running so high in the wind that it  became dangerous to pursue it and  it was temporarily suspended. Both  were expert swimmers.   A young  man named Ilogman from Saratoga  says he was  fishing on the   lake  Saturday forenoon aud saw the two  men in a boat at a distance.   About  11  o'clock the wind blew so hard  that he rowed ashore, noticing that  tlie men were not then on the lake  aud thought they had gone to land.  Coroner McCarthy has the matter  in   charge .and   sent   McLennan's  body   to   his mother's house.    He  was a member of the I.O.O.F and  unmarried.  JACKSONVILLE   HOLOCAUST  Americans Leave Pekin.  Pekin, May 5.���The United  States cavalry and artillery left  Pekin this" morning to march to  Ton Ku. Imposing farewell ceremonies attended their departure.

General  Chafee publicly thanked the cavalry  and artillery for their services in  the international relief expedition  and for their behaviour ��� since,  u liich had been, he said, a credit to  themselves and their nation. Tlie  infa ntry and headquarters staff  will leave by rail as soon as che  transports arrive at Taku.  Baseball at the East.  At Buffalo���Buffalo S.Toronto 10.

Property Loss Will Reach Several Millions and 10,000 Citizens Are  Rendered Homeless.  Jacksonville, May 5.���A devastated city greeted the smoke-enshrouded sun today. The fire which  broke out at noon on Friday, and  was aided in its work by a southwest gale, spent its force by 9  o'clock last night. The damage is  enormous. One hundred and forty-  eight blocks were swept by the  flames, and as far as known seven  persons lost their lives. A report  was in circulation this morning  that a party of 20 persons, driven  to the docks along the river, had  been forced to the water and that  all attempts at rescue by boats had'  been futile. The river is being  searched.  The losses by the fire will not be  known for a week. The path of  the flames was thirteen blocks wide  and nearly two miles long. Practically all old Jacksonville was destroyed, nothing having been left  but a few suburbs and the riverside, the most fashionable part of  the city. It is believed the fire "was  the largest on record in proportion  to the size of the city. The street  car service has been at a complete standstill for the day. Last  .night the city was in darkness.  The electric light wires were interrupted and the gas plant destroyed.  A conservative estimate places the  number of homeless people in the  city at 10,000. Most of. these spent  the night in the parks, on the  docks aud on barges, while some  slept beside the few belongings  they had managed to save'from the  general wreck.  The board of trade and other  commercial bodies had meetings  this morning to take action looking  to the alleviation of the suffering.  It was expected an appeal to the  people of the United States, calling  for aid, would be issued during the  day. Leading business men and  insurance agents estimate the loss  of property at from $10,000,000 to  $15,000,000. The St. James hotel,  which was destroyed, had been  closed since April 19th. The loss  on this building is $175,000. Among  the buildings destroyed are the  Auditorium, board of trade, St.  James hotel, Windsor hotel, the  Seminole club, the Bailey metropolis, the city hall and market, the  Gardiner, the largest officebuilding  -in"thecity,"aud"the"Hubbard building.  Dr. H, R. Dean, a prominent physician, has reported to the police  the loss of his two children, Helen  and Francis. He believes Helen  will be found but that Francis was  burned to death in his office  where they had sought safety. Dr.  Dean fainted in the street after an  all night's search, and in falling was  seriously injured. W. B. Barnett,  president of the First-National  bank of Jacksonville, also fainted  ,during the'fire. He fell into some  smouldering ruins and was severely  ' burned before ������ resejued. Tiie terrific strain, adde'd^to the warm  weather, is .telling,'ron-., many, of  those who are actiy,e in rescue  work. A number of cases of prostrations were reported.  Mayor Bowdon said to the Associated Press, representative tbis  morning: "-Say to the world that  the loss to Jacksonville is greater  than ever before inflicted by fire upon  a city of the south. But her wealth  survives in her people. I estimate  our loss in property at fifteen million dollars. There is no hint of  lawlessness; our people of every  race and condition have shown the  most helpful spirit to each other,  and I cannot find words of commendation strong enough to express my admiration of the work  done. The progress of the fire was  so rapid, and the heat so intense,  that it was only the helpfulness  and obedience shown that prevented a terrible loss of life. I  have no doubt the meeting called  by the municipal authorities and  board of trade will be largely attended, and steps will be taken to  deal with the situation in the most  effective way." Money is pouring  in from all Florida cities by wire  and express. The Times-Union  and Citizen has headed a fund  which is growing rapidly. Ifc is  admitted generally that the situation is a serious one, and that help  will be needed from the outside.  Savannah, May 5.���J. A. Ferris,  conductor of the Southern railway  train .number 36, worked for three  hours in the flames, and saw much  of the suffering and desolation  wrought by their devasting fury.  " Practically the entire residence  section of the town is iu ruins"  said he, " and of the, business section only four or five blocks remain. Thousands of* people are  homeless, and.in want, and many  of them are'leaving the' eity. During the time the fire was raging the  entire population ofi Jacksonville  was abroad. Most of. them N were  engaged fighting flames-or in striving to remove to a place of safety  their belongings. Every wagon aud  cart that could be found - was  pressed into servics^ and these  heavily leaden with'J- all sorts of  furniture and personal property,  were passing in a long' line across  the river. The houses and barns  burned like tinder, anda scarcity of  water increased the difficulties of  the firemen. I worked for three  hours doing all I could to save  property. When ruyj duty compelled me to leave the city the fire  seemed to have about' burned itself  out. The misery that has ��� beeu  wrought passes description.  Jacksonville, May 5.���W. W.  Cleveland, on whose premises the  fire originated and who is one of  the heaviest losers, dropped dead  from excitement. A stalwart negro  carrying a trunk on his head from  a burning building went crazy"  from horror of the situation. Ho-  ran around in a circle with the  trunk ou his head until he sank exhausted and died. Women ran  through -the streets tearing" their,  hair and clothes, and in several in-,  stances had almost denuded them-'  selves when they were caught by.  friends and' led to places'.. of.' safety.  Horses hitched to'trucks could not  be cut quickly enough.vand' many  ran wild through the demoralized,  throng., At'night..tlie-military was'1  ordered oii'fc to' guard the- household  goods piled high in the streets.,  Jacksonville, Fla,' May 5.���  The hunger of 10,000 homeless  people was satisfied today upon the  arrival of the relief trains- and  boats bringing provisions' from  neighboring towns. A commissary  was established in the center of  the city and thousands were fed  during the day. The relief fund is  growing hourly and every mail  brings offers of assistance. Today  an order was promulgated under  martial law requiring all merchants  whose stores were spared by the  conflagration to open their doors  and to sell to all who asked. It is  estimated that 3000 persons have  left the city aud every outgoing  train is crowed with refugees. To-  _morr_ow_the_Times-Union-and���Citizen will establish the total property  loss at $11,000,000. Rumors of loss  of loss of life are on every hand  tonight and the river has been  closely watched today. Many persons have confirmed the report of  loss of life at the Market street  wharf. Martial law is being rigidly  enforced and the town is quiet tonight.   Russian Operations in Manchuria.  St. Pktkrshukg, May 5.���The  papers have published details of the  recent operations in'Manchuria. It  appears that the north Manchurian  division under general Zerpitski  fought over twenty engagements,  losing altogether 24 men killed and  7 officers and 01 men wounded, two  officers having died of their wounds.  A quantity of guns and rifles were  captured. The total result of the  operations is that of three bands  which at the beginning of the/year  menaced the peace of Manchuria  two have been annihilated according to the Russky Invalida and a  third after sustaining a number of  defeats is now being pursued by  the Russian division.  CHINA ANXIOUS TO SETTLE  Legislative Proceedings.  Victoria, May 2. ��� [Special to  The Tribune.]���The bill validating  the money bylaws passed by the  city of Nelson this year only needs  the assent of the acting lieutenant  governor to become law.  The railway subsidy bill will be  the main question in the house tomorrow.    LONDON, 5.���There are further  indications that the coal owners  and merchants are waivering in regard to the advisability of urging  the miners to close the pits. The  dissensions among the mi tiers are  becoming more marked.  WILL  AGREE  TO  ANYTHING   IN  REASON.  Minister Conger,  Now in the United  States,   Explains    the  Situation.  New York, May 5.���Minister E.  H. Conger, who has lately returned  to this country furnishes an article  on tha Chinese situation which will  appear   in the coming number of  Leslie's Weekly.      Mr. Conger says  in  part:      "Unless   matters   have  changed very materially since I left  China, six weeks ago, the powers  will reach some conclusion iu regard to China very soon.   China is  perfectly willing to   do anything  that the powers  agree upon���that  is anything within her ability to  accomplish.     Of course the powers  must   not   demand an indemnity  whieh China will be physically unable to raise.   It is not certain that  finally some nation may   not de-  .mand territory of China in lieu of  a money indemnitjr.   It is perfectly  certain that if any nationdoes make  this demand the partition of China  will follow and this will inevitably  cause    much    dissension   between  the powers.   Personally I am very  much" in favor of tiie continued existence of China as an empire governed by her own emperor.   It will  save us and the rest of the world  lots of trouble if the integrity of  the empire is maintained.   The empress dowager has done much harm.  She   is   not, however, entirely to  blame   for   "the    Boxer    uprising.  Among her counselors aud near to  . her were many men of- strong anti-  foreign feeling,   and   she  listened,  only too willingly to what they said,  her owiivprejudices coinciding with'  theirs.. As far, as; the punishment of;  ���the"-Chinese "officials  is "concerned,  China-has already done all that she  could,   lu some cases officials whose  punishment   was   demanded   were  moro  powerful   than  the   government, and then of course the punishment could not be enforced. Except in those cases everything was  done as the powers demanded."  64,000 NEW SETTLERS.  Spokesman Review.  The St. Paul Pioneer Press estimates the westward movement of  homeseekers this season afc 04,000.  The figure includes all passing  through Sfc. Paul for Minnesota,  Wisconsin, the Dakotas, Montana,  Idaho, Washington and Oregon.  "Immigration agents speak witli  pleasurable satisfaction of the per-  _manent-character-of���the-immigra-  tiou this spring," says the Press.  "Many people have made the western trip principally for the purpose  of investigating^ but less than  10 per cent of fche travel went  through on return tickets. The  substantial result of the spring immigration will be about 5S,00U new  settlers in the west and northwest.  These come from Iowa, Ohio, Michigan, Vermont, Massachusetts, New  Hampshire, East and West Virginia and numerous eastern, central  and southern states and are solid,  substantial citizens. With tlie  westward movement has also been  a large sale of railroad lands."  To tho etsimate of the Pioneer  Press of the St. Paul gateway immigration can be added that of the  Union Pacific, Rio Grande Western  and Denver & Rio Grande, said to  have been in many cases nearly as  large as that of the two northern  roads. The total would be well up  to 100,000 new settlers for the  country west of the Missouri.  W. D. O'Brien, who succeeded F.  E. Elmeudorf as general director of  the immigration movement in the  interests of the Spokane chamber  of commerce and the inland empire,  is home after over a mouth's work  at St. Paul. " The work has been  decidedlg successful." he said yesterday afternoon, "and the venture  was certainly a paying one.  "The wave of immigration that  went through St. Paul was tremendous. Homeseekers were of all  classes and conditions. They responded readily to the approaches  of the ' representatives, but the  nature of the work had to be explained anew every week."  Mr. O'Brien is authority for the  statement that the excursionists to  come on the first and third Tuesdays   of   May  and   June   will  b  looked after iu local interests'as far  as the distribution of literature  among them is concerned. This  work will be done by the news companies with whom there is an agreement.  The homeseekers' trains of May  and June will leave Chicago, coming through St. Paul. Dates are  May 7 and 21, June 4 and 18, one  day to be added in each case for  the . Sc. Paul time table and two  days more for the Spokane end.  "Amelia's Mansion" Sold.  Salt Lake, May 5.���The Gardo  house, known as "Amelia's Mansion," built by Brigham.Young for  his favorite wife, Ameliti Folsom  Young, and for years occupied by  her, today passed out of the hands  of the church. The property was  sold to Colonel F. E. S. Holmes of  this city and probably will be occupied by him as a residence. The  historic mansion, which is just opposite the Bee Hive, was built in  the days when palatial residences  were a novelty in Salt Lake. It  was' vacated' by Amelia Folsom  Young after the death of Brigham  Young and for a time was occupied  by the late President Woodruff.  The property was sold in the name  of President Snow as trustee for  the church.  HOPELESSLY OVERMATCHED  BOER   COMMANDOS   ARE   GRADUALLY BEING DECIMATED.

London, May 0.���The Daily Mail'  publishes tlie following telegram  from Vienna: A gang of gypsies in  revenge for their previous capture  "by_gen(lanne"s^poi.soned~the wells  in the village of Kapolya, Hungary,  with the result that fifteen persons  have died of poisoning. Several of  the gypsies have been arrested and  strichnine found in their possession.  Another Record Broken.  Sacramento, California, May 5.  ���At tlie Velodrome races this  afternoon Bell and Stone on a  motor cycle lowered the world's record for five miles on an eight lap  track by making the distance in  7:23. The former record was 7:40f  made on the same track by the  Turville brothers two weeks ago.  Caused by Lightning.  Dallas, Texas, May 5.���The repository of the Southern Rock  Island Plow Company here was  destroyed by fire last night aud  the loss is estimated at about  $250,000 with probably $150,000 insurance. The fire was caused by  lightning.  Tlie Sy verson Lumber Company  of Chehalis, Washington, is a new  firm tliat is commencing the erection of a sawmill a mile west of  Adna, on the South Bend branch of  the Northern Pacific railway. The  firm comprises H. Sy verson of Portland and C. Wilson of Chehalis.  Tlie mill will  cut 30,000 feet  daily.  After careful inquiries, the German foreign office empowers the  Associated Press to assert that  Germany has not acquired a coaling  station on the island of Margarita,  off the coast of Venezuela through  the agency of the German cruiser  Vinita.        The contract has been awarded  at Missoula, Montana, for the Clark  flour mill for $9250. The mill is to  be 50 feet by 32 aud four stories  high.  New York, May  dispatch to the New York Tribune  dated London, 1  a.m.,' I. N. Ford'  says:   General Kitchener's business  like inventories of ammunition and'  stock captured   and   Boers Skilled,  wounded and taken prisoners con- -  firm the general impression that;  the 'campaign in South Africa has  become a process of wearing' down/  ra-sistance   by   constant   attrition.  There can be no exultation over the  results of a' conflict in which fche .  Boers are hopelessly overmatched,"  and the   English   press   does not  attempt to exagerate   the importance of insignificant incidents nor  .even take note of what is going on.  It is simply regarded as a bit of'.  rough work which   must' be' put'  through by mechanical means.     "'  Cattle,   horses   and ammunition  are now scarce among the Boers"  and this is a clear indication that  the end   is drawing   near.     It is  probable that the   commandos in  the field do not exceed more - than  two or three thousand men all told/  and   that the bands of guerrilla*",  are not over two hundred strong.*;  Neither Botha nor Deweb has beeu,  actively employed for a longtime!

The   weakest point in  the scheme has been discovered by  a group   of   imperialist;   unionists,  who intend to force debate upon it. ���  This is   thafc   the   war office doe's  nothing to  develop  the   auxiliary  forces  of the colonies, whieh have  been of inestimable value during  the war.     These  imperialists  hold  that there ought to be a conference  in London of military representa-,  tive3  of   Canada,  Australia,   New  Zealand, Natal and Cape Colony, fog^  the-"adoption  of" measures  for the  recruitment  and organization of a  permanent  colonial, force   for  the  defence   of   the   empire.     Gilbert  Parker is taking an  active interest  in   the  matter and  will  probably  move an amendment at an early  date.  %A-  77^  '..;���>���  .\ ������&_  '���'m.

The dispatches from Cowes describe the first spin between the  two Shamrocks in a slight northeast wind. Mr. Watson's boat  seemed to have outsailed Mr. Fife's  but the test was only for a short  distance and was inconclusive.  Neither yacht was properly tuned  for racing and the crews were  mainly employed in stretching the  sails. The accident by which the  Shamrock II ran aground and remained fast until the tide turned  was not a serious mishap and the  Erin finally towed . her into'port.  Yachting experts were impressed  with the speed of Watson's boat  and her quickness in stays and  there is a tone of confidence in the  earliest description of her performance in Southampton water. Public interest in the cup race is sluggish. There was over confidence  when Fife's b->at was landed as the  fastest yacht afloat and Watson's  craft will have to win the cup before a hurrah is raised.  Kruger Again Turned Down.

This,  book is a romance of a New  England coast  town, charmingly told, the description being lifelike while, the  characters are depicited with creative forco;  that of tho old general being particularly good.  It covers the period just previous,to aud during  the Civil War.  ^Frenchmen, Spaniards; Portuguese, Greeks  and Mexicans are nil mixed up'in a carnival of  crime and they do their villainies in a " Ha-Ha���  I'll have your blood" fashion, and the table is so  picturesque you can almost hear the foot-siamp-  ing, cursing, raving, shouting pirates.

In   deciding   upon    government  ���ownership of its telegraph lines  Canada would be following  in the  .footsteps of Great Britain, Germany and France; so that the��cir-  ' cumstance that government ownership 'in Britain is attended by a  deficitof one million dollars does not  amount to much  when it is shown  ���that in Germany and France large  earnings were made on the ratio of  the services.

Southampton,   May 4. ���r While  the challenger, Shamrock II,  was  preparing today for her first sail  the American line steamer St. Louis  passed her.     There were a number  of Americans on board who closely  scanned the challenger.. On passing  the yacht the steamer slowed down  and   saluted.     The   crews of  the  Erin and the Shamrock, who were  engaged in their respective  duties,  cheered   the   St.    Louis   heartily.  During   the   forenoon the   breeze  steadied and hardened until a fiue  crisp    northeaster    was     blowing  sufficient to l'aise the white caps.  The jibs and stays of the challenger  were hoisted at an early hour, and  when the word was given to raise  the mainsail, the speed with which  it   was   hoisted   from   the   deck,  demonstrated the swiftness of the  appliances adopted.    . The   sail  is  made   of   dark  sea  island  cotton,  and fully justifies the expectation  of its being the  largest on record.  The cup challenger started 6a her  first trial "spin"* this;,'morning : under  excellent conditions. The sun shone  brightly and warm,  and  a' steady  northeasterly breeze was  blowing.  Keen interest is shown in the tiial,  and a large number  o'E yachts  and  steamers, crowded with passengers,  accompanied the   challenger.    The  Shamrock IT. started shortly afterwards, with sheets well off, her best  point of sailing, but when they got  together   and fairly   started,  the  challenger commenced to  pull out  in fine style, and had a good lead  as the boats came abreast  of -Cal-  shot castle.     The  distance  of the  spin was short, but the 'manner in  whicli the boat sailed suggested that  the Shamrock I. had little chance  of proving a  serious  opponent  in  the trial races.  __          ,      __    __     ,_     __     ,_    ,���      __.    w��.    <*��.   ��^ .<����..-����.. ��^ jar . &0 .*#*.00 ./90. 0& .#0.00 .00.00.0f> .(&? .0* .e&W .&0. 0?'gi0,  .'"a**^ -J2&-JS; '^'^ ���JS^St ���.T8L,2fr 'nS?'^ 'M&a*l*��& l*&*^ -���� '&��.'

SALISBURY MAY NOT RESIGN  In Return   For This De Giers Would  Consent to Sweeping Reductions  in the Powers Indemnities.  London, May 5���Dr. Morrison,  wiring to the Times, from Pekin on  Thursday, says: "M.'De Giers has  addressed a letter to the financial  committee of the ministers of.the  powers, urging the economical advantages of giving to China a conjoint government guarantee, to enable her to raise a loan with which  to pay the indemnity. He argues  that in order to pay ��05,000,000,  China will need to issue a loan of  ��75,000,000 at 4 or ah per cent, He  asserts that if the total indemnity  is * reduced to ��40,000,000, as the  United States suggested, China with  an international guarantee, would  only need a loan of �� 13,000,000.  lie suggests that the loan could be  secured on the customs, or by an increase of the import duties. The  letter" is instructive as showing  Russia's willingness to interfere  with the imperial privileges, such  as the Manchurian pensions aud tlie  grain tribute. Ou the* other hand  it shows Russia's willingness to  throw the burden upon the foreign  import trade, iu .-'which she has  practically no interest. Tlie letter  further shows Russia's apparent  readiness to join Great 'Britain and  the United States in a reduction ot  indemnity in return for a conjoint  government guarantee.  Pekin, May 5.���-A majority of  the foreign ministers will leave  Pekin next week for the western  hills to spend the summer, taking  with them military guards for  their protection, their intention  being to come to Pekin for the purpose of holdingmeetings and attend-  ing to necessary business. Missionary Owen, of the London mission,  says all reports received by his  mission  from  the  provinces  show  ��� them to be in a deplorable state.  Discontent and intense hatred of  foreigners prevail, and worse conditions than existed before tlie  siege are threatened. The departure of the troops, he predicts, will  _be"signialized=by"{irmassacre���o father  native Christians. "Those eligible  to see the facts and reporting otherwise to their governments," says  Mr. Owen, "are as wilfully blind as  before."   GERMANY'S CABINET CRISIS  No Room for Independent Men.  Berlin, May 5.���In well informed quarters the representative of  the Associated Press hears the sensational news that emperor William  wants count Zedlis Truetscher to  become Prussian minister of the interior. The count is now chief  president of Hesse-Lassau, in Cas-  sal, and was formerly Prussian  minister of education. It was  under his administration that the  famous school law was framed at  the instance of the emperor. This  law, however, was dropped eventually, because of the intense indignation it aroused in Liberal circles,  whereupon the count resigned. He  is still a great favorite with the  emperor, the conservatives and the  centrists. , His being summoned  here is generally interpreted as a  sign that re-actionism will reign in  the cabinet. Count Von Buelow, it  is considered certain, will avoid  everything that might offend the  centre and the conservative parties,  and no change in the system will be  inauqurated since the- government  needs both tlie conservatives and  centrists in the reichstag. The Associated Press hears further thafc  baron Von 'Rhein-Baden, minister  of the interior, will succeed Dr.  Von Miquel as finance minister.  Theodore Mueller, national liberal  HIS    HEALTH.

The . members of his  family in office are striving to  create the impression that his courage and interest in public life has  been revived, and that he,has no  intention of retiring. He will not  lack their encouragement, for their  own importance as ministerial  figures depends upon his retention  in office. The word has been passed around the government benches  that the prime minister will remain  in public life until the coronation  aud that Mr. Chamberlain will not  leave the colonial office un til the  South African question is settled.  Old Tories are greatly relieved  and are grateful to sir Michael  Hicks-Beach for holding his ground  and resis'tiug Mr. Chamberlain's influence. They assert . that Mr,  Chamberlain could not keep the  majority together if he were in  command iu the commons, and that  Mr. Balfour could hot be spared  from the leadership. Political experts agree that "snaviter in mode"  is more important than "fortier in  re" when a large body of followers  needs to be kept under discipline  and a faction-rent opposition to be  coaxed into good behaviour^ Mr.  Chamberlain is a hard fighter, but  is not tactful. Mr. Balfour's  amiability oils the wheels of legislation. He can pay a great compliment to Mr. John Redmond for the  sake of being relieved of a vexatious obstruction, and he never  hurts any friend or foe without  privately expressing his regret.  The liberal leadership in the commons has been deficient in sagacity.  Sir William Vernon Harcourt's  assault upon the coal tax has not  been well supported and sir Henry  Campbell-Banuerman haa made a  "tacticalTmstakFl^  of censure respecting the scheme of  army reform, and in converting  the military reorganization into a  party question. It would have  been better if he had allowed Win-  stou Spencer Churchill to move an  amendment and had lent his aid.  Mr. Churchill will now be compelled to drop his' amendment and  all independent critics of the war  office un the government side will  walk out of the house when the  party motion of censure is voted  upon. Sir Henry-Campbell Bannerman lacks political instinct.  Foreign affairs remain stagnant.  There are rumors from Rome of  the impending resignations of Cardinals Rampolla and Ledochowski,  but these are probably whiffs of  idle gossip. v  Deserved to be Killed.  Little Falls, New York, May  5.���John Wallace of the town of  Warren was arrested last night by  sheriff Strobel for killing Benjamin  Hoyt, who had killed Wallace's  ���wife. Wallace was taken to Herkimer jail this morning and makes  the plea that the killing of Hoyt  was in self defence, as Hoyt had  drawn a revolver on him.  Tenement House Horror.  Chicago, May 5.���Seven persons  were burned to death while asleep  early today in a tenement house at  South Chicago. A freight train of  05 cars which was standing in front  of the building and which it is  claimed the crew refused to move  blocked the firemen, who were unable to get near the building until  it was too late. The train crew  were arrested and are being held  without bail.  SAVINCS   BANK   DEPARTMENT.  THK   CURKENT   KATK   OK    IMTKKKST   ALLOWED.  Nelson Branch���Burns Block, 221 Baker  Street.  J. M.

ness on May ist we had no less than fourteen different representatives call on us representing the best Eastern and Coast
houses. We don't say that we bought a carload of goods from each one, but we made our selection from the house
who showed the,best and newest goods at lowest prices, and although some of our stock has arrived, ;still there are ■
several cars on the way containing goods for us, and our stock will in a very few days be complete, with nothing .but
new goods, fresh, clean and strictly up-to-date. Why pay good money for old goods when you can buy new and fresh,\.
goods for the same money.    Always a full line of groceries, smoked  meats,   butter,  eggs, green, vegetables, &c, &c.

Tha Experiment Not a Decided Success.
The early closing in Nelson has
not proved to be tbe great success
which was claimed. On- Thursday
last the stores closed their doors at
12 o'clock noon, having dulyjnotified
their customers that their orders
could not be filled after that hour.
However, the city is admittedly the
headquarters for trading, and scores
of people from outside points were
in oh Thursday to make their purchases. It was an annoying experience to them to ' find every
house of business closed, thus necessitating a return .trip or staying
over night./Such inconvenience as
this is riot  calculated to. improve
the trade of Nelson.   Several other
points are rivals for trade, and anything calculated to divert it should
be   avoided.      It  now   transpires
that:    a      great      -many      local
merchants     were      induced      to
sign, the early closing- agreement
somewhat under"-'false    pretenses.
They wereanformed  tliat others in
the same line of business were enthusiastic    in    the      cause,    and
hence     expressed     a    willingness
to   conform    with    the     general
feeling. ,v.Oii comparing- notes, however, it is found tliat there was not
that unanimity represented,   and
how there is a feeling to revise, tbe
plan.,. It   is . contended    that   the
store clerks can get an evening off
any time ,.they wish, and that the
general   closing of the stores one
afternoon each week ,is detrimental
to   trade... Business  at  present in
Nelson is not too .brisk, and even a
half day's suspension increases tlie
strain.     The ,early .closing   movement ig not likely, to last..  It is
not business when, a .man   has to
refuse to,-supply;-an old customer,
with   goods   simply    because   his
store is supposed ,to be closed during business hours.  . Already a few
complaints have been registered on
this score—a few;-.more will kill the
early closing movement. ,in Nelson.
Competition is top keen nowadays
.to-turn, .a.,-'cash 'customer from the.
door,. arid if ouljsidei s realize that
business is suspended in Nelson for
one afternbon in Ithe week they are
likely to^'giye'the :city a wide berth
on that  particular  day.    Can Nelson afford this? (TheReeling is that
the early closing. movement   was
forced, and; that it is premature.
