C, FRIDAY MORNING, MAY 3,  1901  PRICE FIVE CENTS  SAME OLD MINE-OWNERS  NOT CONTENT WITH PROFITS OF  27 PER CENT.  England's Chancellor of the Exchequer  Loses Patience With Their Blue  Ruin Cries.  London, May 2.���There was a  large attendance in the house of  commons today, in anticipation ot  the discussion of new export tax on  coal. The government is standing  firm, and is taking strong precautions to secure a majority.  The full house and galleries had  to wait until nearly 6 o'clock for  tlie beginning of tlie coal tax debate. Sir William Vernon Harcourt,  Liberal, led with a severe, almost  violent, arraignment of the government. He said the tax would throw  the coal trade into chaos and confusion. It recklessly disregarded  existing contracts, and was a most  unbusinesslike way of dealing with  a great trade. It was an extraordinary and vexatious piece of  bungling. It was nonsense to say  tlie foreigner would pay tlie tax because he would not; do without coal.  The government of Italy had  answered by taking coal from  America instead of this country.  Thejtrade of France was equally  divided by tliis country, Germany  and Belgium.  The chancellor of tlie exehpquer,  sir Michael Hicks-Beach, interrupting said :   "AVe are beating others."  ���'Then go on beating them," said  sir William Harcourt, "why throw  a shilling into "tlie scale against  this country. Sir William cou-  . tended that it was class legislation,  and that the tax would ultimately  come out of tho miners' wages.  The chancellor of the exchequer  admitted that tho -tax, like every  tax, was an obstruction to the  trade. The real question was,  could the export trade in coal bear  the tax? ,It_,epuld. .En'glish coal  was of a high quality, there was  much of it, and it could not be got  in any other country. Thus, to a  large extent it was free from competition. The chancellor submitted  masses, of statistics which he has  summarized as showing that  225,000,000 tons were mined in 1900,  on which, after deducting ��18,000,-  000 iii: wages'.more than in 1897, left  the coal owners a net profit of  ��29,000,000 ou a capital of  ��110,000,000. He had some difficulty  in keeping his patience when  deputations talked to him about  the unprofitable condition of trade.  He had proposed the tax for merely  one year and it would be on those  who were able to bear it.  There was considerable excitement  on the Cardiff coal exchange today.  - Tire^pauci t jTof=f FeeTJoaMffd isjJbselr  to selling at any price. Some firms  are suspending their charging operations, pending developments.  Lord Cranborne, the '" foreign  under secretaryj said rumors have  reached the government from various sources of the intention of  Germany to increase the duties on  steel and 'other goods. The government was alive to the importance  of such information; but, in tlie  absence of definite knowledge of  Germany's intentions, the ministry  was unable to make any statement  in reply to the members suggestion  of withdrawing free trade from  Germany.  The chancellor of the exchequer,  Sir Michael Hicks-Beach, replying  to Mr. Chauning, (Liberal) said of  the war loan ��30,000,000 had been  allotted as follows: To the Roth-  tihild'8 ��11,000,000, J. P. Morgan &  Co., ��10,000,000, and the bank of  England ��9,000,000.  Will Earn Spending Money.  New Youk, May 2.���Cornell men  in large numbers will be seen at  the Pan-American exposition this  summer, says a Tribune special  from Ithaca. They will push  wheeled chairs for tired sightseers,  act as exposition policemen, become  Waiters for the summer, run soda  water fouuteuns, act as clerks in  stands of various sorts, or assist  exhibitors. A representative of  the exposition authorities has  signed contracts with more than  two hundred students.  The Tobacco Trusts Deal.  New York, May 2.���It is announced, says a special to the Times  from Tampa, Florida, that negotiations, which have been pending for  three months between the American Cigar Company, a branch of  the American Tobacco Company,  and the Havana-American Cigar  Company, owning the largest clear  Havana factories in the United  States, have been completed in  Tampa. All the factories of the  latter company will pass into the  possession of the tobacco combine.  The Havana-American Company is  a recently formed consolidation. It  owns clear Havana cigar factories  at Tampa, Key West, Chicago, New  Orleans, New York and Bingham-  ton. It is capitalized at ten million  dollars.  .  EMPEROR WILLIAM IS MAD  -, Over Canal Bill's Failure.  Berlin, May 2.���The chancellor,  count von Buellow, reported per-'  sonally to emperor William yesterday, and complained of the intentional delaying of the canal bill by  the majority of the government,  and thereupon gave up further negotiations regarding the bill for the  time being. The resignation of Dr.  Von.Miquel, the finance minister, is  now considered likely to be presented in the immediate future.  Emperor William and the Prussian  cabinet adhere to their intention to  build tlie canal.  The correspondent of the Associated Press understands that the  purpose of tomorrow's joint session  of the diet and house of lords is to  close the session as expressing emperor William's displeasure at the  failure of the canal bill in committee. The Lokal Anzeiger learns  that the prorogation will be accompanied by a strongly worded declaration of the ministry.  oeneral Von Hahuke, until recently chief of the emperor's military cabinet, has been appointed  governor of Berlin.  McCormick Clue a Trick.  Washington, May 2.���The Washington clue in,the Willie McCor-  .miek kidnaping case is about exploded. The detectives have practically concluded that the slip of  paper, and the mysterious coincidence by which it came into their  possession, are the result of connivance between parties in. New  York, who had access to the McCormick home, and others. The  gypsies who figured so largely in  the matter have been driven from  Alexandria county and are on their  way to Pittsburg.  Patrick Proceedings Adjourned.  New York, May 2.���Albert T.  Patrick, David L. Short and Morris  Meyers, under indictment for the  forgery of the will of the late  millionaire, William M. Rice, were  arraigned today before recorder  Goff. Patrick was arraigned on the  charge of murder in the first de-  gree for causingjihejteath^j^Ricj^  "ItoberOITMoore, forthe defendants,  said he desired to enter a demurrer  to the indictment for the murder,  and asked time to prepare it. Recorder Goff adjourned the proceedings until tomorrow. No plea was  entered.   Negro Murderers Convicted.  Philadelphia, May 2.���Amos  Sterling, colored, was today convicted of murder in the first degree  for the killing of Roy Wilson, the  young University of Pennsylvania  professor. Professor Wilson was  beaten to death with an iron bar  on a street in West Philadelphia on  May 19th last, and afterwards  robbed. Two other negroes, Henry  Ivory and Charles Perry, have also  been convicted, and are under sentence to be hanged for complicity  in the murder.  Chinese Indemnity Cut Down.  Berlin, M ty 2.���The statement  that the totfil indemnity to be demanded of China amounts to ��05,-  000,000 has been officially confirmed  here. Tliis amount includes all private claims. It is believed here  that if China will now undertake to  pay this sum in indemnity the  evacuation of Pechili province can  begin immediately.  The Constitution's Measurements.  New York, May 2.-���The Com-  mei'cial Advertiser says the following measurements and description  of the new Herresehoffcup defender  Constitution, which is to be launched  next Monday night, are from  authoritative sources. The Constitution, it is learned, is of the samo  over-all length as the Columbia, 132  feet, and also of the same length ou  the   water line, 87 ieet 7 inches.  DUNSMUIR'S CABINET WOBBUNO  It Now  Looks  as  if Jim Hill Will Be Permitted to Do Business  on  His  Own  Terms.  The Legislature Mig'ht Endorse the Railway Bill and then Defeat  the  Government.  Victoria, May 2��� [Special to the  Tribune].���The only business of  importance during the afternoon  session was on the report of. Martin's champerty bill. Martin moved  to strike out certain words in section 2, which, if they remain, practically kill the bill. The house refused to strike them out by a vote  of 10 to 17.  At the night session the minister  of finance moved thti second reading of the railvvay subsidy bill.  He said the bill would be amended  iu committee, but failed to state in  what way.   This caused dissent.  The opposition, led by Martin,  favor  the  bill  as  introduced; but  Smith Curtis wants it amended.  The Helfacken bolters also want it  amended, and Oliver, Tatlow and  Hay ward pressed the finance minister for particulars. He was between the devil and the deep sea,  and for a time refused to state iu  what way the bill would be  amended, and the l premier, was  equally opposed to" making any  such committal. For a time it  looked as if the minister of finance  would chuck up the bill,rather than  make definite statements as to  amendments, but he finally made  them, and the debate was adjourned till Monday on motion of  Martin.  The bill would, undoubtedly pass  as introduced, but the V., V. & E.  crowd, of whicli Helmcken is the  leader in the house, are determined  to amend it to suit the V., V. & E.  subsidy hunters, and the government is afraid that if they leave  the party, the party will have to  rely on Martin for support in the  future.' Such a contingency is not  relished by some of the goyernment  supporters, and the result will be  that Helmcken and his bolterfollow-  ing will get what they want, no  matter what the people may lose on  the deal.  V., V. & E. wire pullers and  lobbyists are as numerous as flies  oil a molasses barrel, and it looks as  if they would carry the works.  of the nine-year-old Rosenfield boy  was taken from the river near Port  Snelling. Rosenfield is alleged to  have abducted the children when  they were with -their mother at  Minneapolis, secured a rig and  driven with them to the river,  where all are supposed to havo  been drowned.  There is little difference in the  draught, the Columbia drawing  19 feet 7 inches, and- the Constitu-,  tion a little less. The Constitution,  however, is wider in the midships  section by a fodt and a half over  the' Columbia. This is greatly to  the advantage of the new boat  when she is heeled over.  1 Gomez Out of the Race.  New York, May 2.���The Tribune  says: From a statement made last  night by general Domingo Mendez  Capote, chairman of the Cuban  commission, which in the  city, it appears evident that Maximo Gomez will not be a candidate  for the presidency of the new Cuban  republic. Instead T. Estrada Palma,  who was the head of the Cuban  junta in this city during,the war,  is.the .favorite.-candidate .for. this,  oflice. The three men who have  been mentioned for the presidency,  according to Senor Capote, are  generals Gomez, Palma and Maso.  With Gomez out of the race the  contest now lies between Palma  aud Maso, and according to those  who are familiar with the Cuban  situation the nomination and election of general Palma is practically  assured. Both senor Palma and  senor Maso were leaders in the war  against Spain for Cuban independence and thus have the support of  the common people. But general  Palma is also said to have the support of the moneyed and industrial  classes and would prove a more  acceptable man.  Chili's Conscientious President.  Valparaiso, May 2.���President  Errazuriz has issued a decree in  which he declares that important  personal motives prevent him from  fulfilling his constitutional functions  until after next June. He explains  in a letter directed to the governor  of the presidency that in, view bf  the fact that senor Jerman Riesco, a  relative of his, is a candidate for jthe  presidency, and of the disability  imposed upon the president by republican principles when a relative  is a candidate, he would send a  message to congress soliciting leave  of absence until June 25th. It has  been previously announced that  owing to ill health president Erra-  zuriz would turn over the presidency of Chili to prime minister  Zanartu.    _^  Another Bank Man Suicides,  Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, May  2.���Despondency over the murder  of his friend, cashier Charles W.  Ryan of the Halifax National Bank,  of Halifax, recently in an attempt  to prevent Henry Rowe and Watson Keiper from robbing the bank,  today caused John Kohler, cashier  of the Millersburg National Bank,  of Millersburg, to take his own life  by shooting himself iu the head  with a revolver.   Railway Men on Strike.  New York, May 2.���Three  hundred men employed by the Delaware, Lackawanna & Western  railway in their shops at Dover; New  Jersey, struck this afternoon.  Latest Thing in Comets.  Santiago de Chili, May 2.���A  brilliant comet was seen after sunset this afternoon in the western  sky.  METHODISTS'  CONFERENCE  Arranging for the Meeting.  The district Methodist conference  has been in session in Rossland for  the past couple of- days, and much  of the business to- be brought before the ' general' conference of  British Columbia, to open in Nelson  next week, was outlined. The district includes all that territory  from the Crow's Nest' Pass to  Greenwood, including Slocan and  .Sandon, and is considered of such  importance that the annual conference of the whole province is to  be held here this year. The date  originally fixed for.the big gather-  jng.of JVIethodists-jvas MayJJth, but  this has been extended one day, by  which arrangement j clerical and  lay delegates from the Coast  cities can attend without  being absent for two consecutive  Sunday's from their -pulpits and  pews. On Tuesday next the prominent members of the church will  be billeted as far as possible among  the members of the congregation  here, and should this source prove  inadequate, then the hotels will be  called into requisition. From 75 to  100 representatives ! of the Methodist church throughout the province are expected to be in attendance.  Rev. J. A. Wood, Kaslo, presided  over the district conference which  yesterday closed at Rossland, and  reportsJsubmitted showed progress^  Henry Dawson, in whose house Edwards was killed, was found dead  in the public road. The other two  were shot in the cabin. They are  supposed to have been implicated  in the murder of Edwards. The  negroes are terrorized and are fleeing to the city.  Nelson Gun Club.  There was a very small attendance at yesterday's turnout of the  gun club, and it is probable that it  will be the lasc shoot of the season  unless members show a more lively  interest. There were but four to  score, and with 25 birds each the  points made were as follows : C. D.  Blackwood 20, C. D. Goepel 10, P.  Nelson 15, and S. Nelson 14. It  was expected that the half holiday  would have brought out a large  number, of competitors, but the  reverse proved to be the case as  the attendance was the smallest bf  the season.   The Purest Guess Work.  Editor Tribune: Your issue of  this morning contains a special  from Vancouver concerning certain  action which the approaching B. C.  Methodist conference is "determined  to take." For the information of  any who may take an interest in  the matter permit to say that the  conference is made up of delegates  from all parts of British Columbia,  half of whom were only elected this  afternoon. It will be seen that all  prediction as to what will be done  is the purest guess work.  J. H. White.  Nf��lsonT B  C Mav 2. 1901.  in almost every branch of operation.

The accident occurred while trying  to force the ball from the group,  but is not of  a very serious nature.  Arrested on Suspicion.  The local police yesterday received a telegram from Sandon  describing a woman wanted for  theft. The name given was Mertle  but a person registering at one of  the city hotels as Marksham, and  hailing from Rossland, answered  the description and was placed  under arrest.

Seventy per cent of  the farmers of that. district have  lost all their horses and have no  seed.  ROYAL ACADEMY PICTURES  Painting of Queen Victoria.  London, May 2.���The first press  view.of the Royal Academy today  revealed two striking features which  were absent from former exhibitions, viz: paintings dealing with  queen Victoria's death and funeral,  and incidents of the Boer war. Benjamin Constant's picture of the  queen has ' a whole wall to itself,  with a background of black" and  purple. It will undoubtedly be the  picture of the year.  Lord Dundbnald's dash on Ladysmith, and pictures of other engagements iu South Africa, make  bright contrasts to the rows and  rows of landscapes and portraits.  Of the latter Sargent sends nine,  tlie.most striking of which is the  daughters of Mr. Wortheiraer. One  of the most charming pictures hung  is "The Flower Girl," by an American, J. J. Shannon.  The queen's , funeral in London  was done by John Charlton, and  the naval cortege at Portsmouth  by W. L. Wyllie. Both are remarkable pictures. Sidney Cooper,'  the father of the academy, and  other old-time academicians, including sir Edward Poynter, with a  marble group, and sir Alma Tadema,  with a classic Helena and Hermia.  will all be found in their accustomed^ places'. The Pall Mall Gazette says: "If it is not by any  means a great academy, it has at  least enough good pictures to keep  it up to the average."  Spokane Strike Settled.  Yesterday the men who went out  from the work on the Spokane Club  building all went back, with the  exception of the plasterers' laborers and plasterers. The laborers  could not get ��� back, because their  officials had called them out, and  they were unable to return until a  meeting of the union was held, at  which time they should be allowed  to return to their work.

J^MaedoiinelUi5,-E.,Lamonti>:i,JV.,  Weir 59, T. Lillie 53, A. Blaney 43,  John Rae 42, and T. Brown 31.

Weart has been appointed  judge of small debts court at Vancouver.  ALL SCRAMBLING FOR COAL  PRINCETON FIELDS RECEIVE ATTENTION.  Nelson and Coast Men Have Secured  Large Tracts of Supposed Coal  Bearing Lands.  ^'Ah  The coal measures of the Prince-,  ton section of the Similkameen dis-,_  trict; which were practically ignor-  ���  ed for several years owing to, the  lack of transportation facilities, are  now receiving their share of attention from the mohied men of the  province and their agents.    Speaking   of these coal measures a recent visitor'describes them, us foi;  lows:  The most important of the coal'  measures   are   those    immediately-'  surrounding the town of Princeton.-  Here is  a  well  defined  coal basin,  probably comprising an ar����a of 50  square miles, every acre of. which  has been located  during" tlie past  month.    No less than six other representatives of capital Avere in camp .  at the same time that I was  locating     and   acquiring    coal ,  lands.  Among   those    represented   were: *  Messrs.   P.    Burns,   T.. G.     Holt,  Rv    Marpole,     E.     V."    Bodwell,  It. G. Tatlow, captain Tron p, George  McL.   Brown,   J.   E.   Saucier   and \  other residents of British Columbia.  This   coal   deposit has  long   been  known to experts, but no attention*"  was  paid  to it on account of the .  lack   of   transportation    facilities, ,  and the news that the railway was  to be built caused the stampede to ���?  take it up.   Alex. Sharp, the coal  expert,   having   been    for    many  years   identified   witli   the-Diins-~  muirs,   is   most .enthusiastic  over  '  the showing; and he acquired  8000  acres  of   land- for   his  principals, ^  Messrs. Burns, Marpole,, eft.  al.    So  strong was Mr. Sharp's faith in the  district that  after taking up the  coal lands he immediately departed  for the  coast for the"purpose of  securing a diamond drill for  prospecting.     The    measures    contain  three seams of coal, one of seven  feet, another of fourteen  feet, and  a third of thirty-five feet. The first,  seam is a lignite, the second- bitum- -  inous and the third and thicker, a  seam as far as can be determined at  present appears tobe an anthracite.  Shareholders Amalgamation.  Rossland, May2.���Fifteen shareholders of the Knob Hill Gold Mining company attended the special'  meeting held in this city today,  when a resolution was adopted? approving of and consenting to the  proposed amalgamation with the  other mining properties of the  Miner-Graves syndicate.

The ease with which Great Britain's chancellor of the exchequer  refuted the hard-luck story of the  colliery owners,who were protesting  against   the   government's  export  duty upon coal, illustrates theimpor-  tance of the government having in  its possession statistical   information concerning all  the great labor  employing industries of the country.   Had it not been possible for  sir Michael Hicks-Beach - to lay before the people of Britain an exact  statement of the profits accruing to  the colliery owners' from their operations, it is  difficult to estimate  the  suffering aud  hardship which  they might have  forced  upon the  people      in      their      efforts      to  evade payment of the tax which,  in   the    opinion   of    the   government, the necessities of  the country   demanded    their    properties  "���   { should pay.   When the export tax  ;'/'' �� of a shilling a ton was first announced, a  shout of protest went  t   i up from every coal mining district  '\   , in England and  Wales.     The col-  1   ' liery owners announced that 'any  ' -.   '" such imposition would drive them,  ,i>Tout of the foreign  markets;   and  ' the working miners seeing nothing  \-    [but   reduced   wages   in   store for  '    . themselves immediately made pre-  ' .      parations for a gigantic strike, as  , their protest against a government  '/' ; measure   which   threatened   their  ��� earnings and their employment as  ,     well.    But it is not likely there  will be any strike."," The British  people are very fair-minded in determining domestic issues, and they  will    doubtless   agree   with    the  chancellor of the exchequer, that.  rnlliwry owners whose _oper^  ations yield them a return  of over twenty-seven per cent  upon their capital invested can  more readily pay the tax of one  shilling a ton upon their coal exports than can their wage-earners  pay their half penny a pound upon  sugar. The prospects now are that  the colliery owners will accept  present conditions without further  protest, and without attempting to  take the tax out of the hides of  their employees; because miners  who have no reverence for their  country's necessity will probably  show less in the matter of preserving any twenty-seven per cent  profit margins.  Goldwin Smith, who has the  faculty for disagreeing with almost  everybody else, is now endeavoring  to put the people of Canada right  ��� upon   their   lesson   in   connection  1 with the war in South  Africa and  ��� the bearing it will likely have upon  ' the future relations of the Dominion  with the rest of the empire.    Put  ��� into a few words the deduction of  i  Canada's eminent scholar is that if  the Dominion is  to participate in  the wars and adventures of the empire, it must learn to walk and not  be carried by the mother country.  He points out that so far Canada  has shared in the excitement,  the  glory and  the  honors of the war,  but ihe people   of   Great Britain  have been called upon to pay the  foilL   This condition cannot be ex-  WALL  PAPER  We can interest you in AVall  Paper.

The Empire League  and the Navy League are already  urging this claim   of   the  empire  upon the Dominion, and it is but a  step until their exhortations will be  seconded by the people of Great  Britain.      Then, if conscription  is  adopted in Britain, which is.nearer  than   most   people' think,  Canada  will be called upon to defend her  frontier of 4000 miles, and, in case  of war with Russia, defend British  Columbia from attack in that quarter.   Nor can any compensation be  expected in the way of preference  clauses   in   Great  Britain's   tariff.  Preferential duties, in the opinion  of Goldwin Smith, are an illusion;  'arid in the recent war tariff of the  English chancellor of the exchequer  there are neither the-, signs....of protection nor preference.   It imposes  indirect taxation, but indirect taxation is not necessarily protection,  =while-the=advoeates=of=preference=  are rebuffed by the operation of  the same .sugar tariff against the  West Indies as against the rest of  the world.    Goldwin Smith's views  are interesting in view of the recent  squabble in the house of commons  over   Laurier's   failure   to   secure  preference for preference in trade  matters,  and  coming  from  a man  not   in   active   politics    may   be  accepted with less reserve than the  colored utterances from Parliament  Hill.   The Evening World is the name  of a new daily paper that has made  its appearance in Rossland. The  World will be issued in the interests of organized labor, and apart  from labor interests promises to be  independent in politics and municipal matters.  American Version of the Hitch.  Washington, May 2.���-It is believed here that the hitch which is  said to have arisen at Pekin, over  the proposition to increase the  Chinese customs duties to meet the  indemnities demanded by the  foreign powers, is caused by the  broaching by Mr. Rockhill of his  plan for the abolition of the likin  duties as a condition for his ac-  quiesence in the customs increase.  The United States government, has  in the past admitted a readiness to  permit the Chinese tb increase the  custom rates, providing there was  no discrimination between the powers. Minister Wu says that the  present five per cent rate is totally  inadequate toprovide a sinkingfund  for a new loan.  Governments Being Established.  Batangas, Island of Luzon, May  2.���A score of insurrectionists fired  into the town last night. No casualties were reported. The few outlaws remaining in the province  have been nearly pacified. Tho  commission has established a government at Sorsorgon, at the  southern end of the island of Luzon,  and has appointed captain J. N.  Livingston, of New York, to bo  governor. The conditions at Sorsorgon are regarded as admirable.  The commission touched at Marin-  ique yesterday, and fulfilled the  pledge made that if the insurgents  surrendered municipalities would  be organized and a separate provisional government would be  established at Marinique. Captain  Brandholdt was a candidate for  governor, but a native was appointed. The commission will go  to Naddla tomorrow, after an eight  weeks' successful tour.  Eastman Threatened Grogan's Life.  Cambridge, May 2.���The tenth  dayof the Eastman murder trial  opened this uorning with witnesses  who testified concerning experiments with pistols, to ascertain the  carrying power of certain cartridges  in their discharge upon pieces of  shirting. The most interesting witness of the morning was Mrs. Mary  Anna Grogan, mother of the dead  man. Mrs. Grogan said that on  June 20th, Eastman came to the  Grogan house, Richard was present,  but went out soon after Eastman  came in. Witness did not notice  that they spoke. Ashe passed out  Eastman said "His days are short."  One of the two girls asked Eastman  what he meant by it, and Lizzie,  tbe wife of the dead man, told Eastman he must have been drinking.  Lizzie and Mrs. Eastman became  quite excited, and witness heard  Eastman say again "His days are  numbered."  Rumor has it that J. A. McDonald's ice cream parlors on Baker  street are the finest in the city.  KOOTENAY....

The Sedgewiek  answered the rocket and started to  give assistance. Captain Burns saw  a faint light where the rocket had  gone up, about a inile away. He  steamed in that direction about two  miles, but the light seemed to keep  its distance. After going about  five miles out of his way he did not  seem to approach any nearer to the  light. Another rocket was sent up  but there was no answer. Suddenly  the light in the distance went out.  Then some one reported the outline  of a ship about half a mile away.  The captain saw it too. The Sedgewiek steamed over an hour but did  not get any nearer the vessel. She  then, lay to till morning, but when  daylight came nothing was in sight.  IMPERIAL BANK  OF    Cj*i71X___\JD_A__.

Eastman,  of Quebec, about* thirty-five years  bld; and well dressed, committed  suicide by shooting herself in the  temple yesterday afternoon in the  Halifax htotel. The victim ..left a  note saying: "Do not let the papers  or police make any effort to find  out who I am, and" be sure I. am  dead before you bury me." No one  by the name of Mrs. Mary D. Eastman is known in Quebec. If the  lady is from ' Quebec, which is  doubtful, the name must be fictitious.      '       Roberts Out on Bail.

O  CITY LOCAL NEWS  Cottonwood creek rose some four  inches yesterday.  Excavation work at the new cus-  tora-hpuse-postoffice buildings continues to make satisfactory progress.  Goff and Burns, who are to meet  here on the 10th inst., had then-  usual practices yesterday, and men  who profess to be judges say they  never showed up in better form.  The Nelson Educational Club will  be addressed this evening by Rev.  J. B. Morgan on "Socialism and Individualism." The meeting takes  place in the Union hall, Baker  street, and is open to free discussion. '    ��  New Denver will have a ball  team this summer composed entirely  of home-talent. It proposes to try'  conclusions with similarly built  teams throughout Kootenay, but  will not play with ringers anywhere.  The steamer from, the Kootenay  landing did not arrive yesterday on  schedule time. A telegram was received that she would be ten hours  late, which would indicate that she  would not be up until after 2 o'clok  this morning.  - The figures given in the statement made by Fred Starkey at the  banquet to sergeant Kelly, as appearing, in yesterday's Tribune,  should have shown a total distribution of the order of three-quarters  of a million. Of this $410,000 was  to widows aud orphans and sick  benefits.  There was a children's entertainment at the Salvation Army barracks last evening, which proved a  very enjoyable, affair. Readings,  recitations, songs, etc. made an  excellent juvenile program. The  little ones constitute "The Band of  Love," and were present to the  number of forty. \  It was announced in yesterday's  Tribune that the two-year-old son  =of=='W.=Hatch==had=been=-stiueken=  with paralysis. The little fellow,  George Harold, died yesterday  evening. Much sympathy is felt  for his sorrowing parents. The  funeral takes places at '3 o'clock today after service at the residence  on Water street at 2:30.  Nelson's commercial importance  as a distributing center is being  demonstrated more and more by  the enterprising men who make up  its merchants aud forwarders. It  will doubtless surprise many to  learn that Nelson supplies no small  portion of the cigar trade of the  Canadian Yukon, but it is a fact  nevertheless, and the business is  growing each month. This trade  is handled by A. B. Gray, local  agent for the Express Cigar Company, who has made extensive  shipments from Nelson via Bennet  City and has received gratifying  assurances of considerable increase  in the prospective business.  Delay  of Justice.  Acting county court judge Forin,  has notified the registrar tliat he  will not be in Nelson today as  arranged, to hear a speedy trial  case fixed, for the date. The result  is that the''prisoner charged with  forgery, alleged to have been committed at New Denver' will wait  until Wednesday next.  Saturday's Rugby Team.  The Nelson Rugby team for Saturday's game against Cranbrook  has been picked as follows: Lynes,  full back, Seatle, Nase. Jeffs and  Macrae, three-quarters; Hodge and  Pullen, half; Winter, Houston,  Forbes, Tuck, Stillwell, Mason,  Sargeaut and Thomson, forwards,  NEW INSURANCE MEASURES  Made Law by Governor Odell,  Albany, May 2.���Governor Odell  today signed two important insurance law amendments introduced  by senator Slater. One authorizes  the formation of insurance companies to insure against disablement resulting from sickness. The  other provides that the state superintendent of insurance shall make  annual valuations of the policies of  any company organized under the  former law, according to the  British Friendly Society tables of  mortality, with interest at three  and one half per cent., or he may in  his discretion vary the standard in  particular cases and may also require additional reserve because of  hazardous occupations, impairment  of the lives of the insured, or insufficient net premiums. This provision is not to apply, however, to  policies insuring against specific  diseases only, and for not longer  than one year without powers of  renewal.     -  Governor. Odell also signed a bill  amending the penal code by removing the minimum penalty for convictions for pool-selling, bookmak-  ing, and making bets and wagers.  Heretofore the penalty has been  imprisonment for not less than one  year, nor more than two years, together with a fine not to exceed  $2000. Under the new law the  minimum period of imprisonment is  unlimited, and the courts are prohibited from imposing both a tine  and imprisonment for the same  offence. ���������:- *���*,' ������.���������      .���_.������  Mining Records.    .

JSTEXiSOHSr  STORES   AT  S-A-nsriDoisr  RUSSIA'S CZAR TO YIELD  Reorganizing Military Academy.  . St. ' Petersburg, ' May 2.���It is  reported in the press here that the  minister for war is contemplating  reorganizing the military medical  academy, where the students are  submitted to military discipline  and are required to serve three  years as military 1surgeons after  graduating. This academy0 is the  principal Bussian medical college.  : The correspondent of the Associated Press is. informed that general Vanovski, the minister of public instruction, made a report to tlie  czar last week recommending the  pardoning of the soldier-students  and other absentees from the universities,- and permitting them, to  return in August for tlie. examinations, their military service to continue until then. The czar consented. : The> students are1 fairly  generous in disregarding the resolution against participating in the  examinations.  * The temporary stoppage of the  Rosseya's sales on,, the streets is  attributed to the publication of a  report of the annual meeting of the  International bank, in which M.  Rothstein', the -manager, was  attacked. All the banks are suffering from industrial and financial  stagnation, but the International  bank is not suffering any more than,  the rest.

Gold in Old Leith.  Alderman Patterson yesterday  received a copy of the Scotsman in  which it is announced that a discovery of gold of considerable importance has been made in Leith in  connection with new buildings to  be erected for the Leith hospital.  The workmen had reached a depth  "ofTierTfeet~when, cutting~througliar  saudy layer, they struck a seam of  quartz, rich in gold, running as  high as 30 ounces to the ton, the  vein is said to have been followed  for about three feet, when digging  operations had to cease, the plans  not permitting of further exploration. If such a discovery were  made in any city in British Columbia the foundation site would  probably be located as a mineral  claim.  HIM IGAMKBOS  INSURANCE.
