Victoria, May 1.���[Special to The Tribune.]���There was not  anything of much importance transacted in the house today. On  the report stage of the supreme court bill, Houston moved that  Nelson be substituted for Vancouver as the place for holding  sittings of the appellate court, and was supported by Curtis aud  Green.    Tatlow, Martiu aud McPhillips opposed.  Houston claimed that 41 per cent, of the cases that went to the  court of appeal originated in Kootenay, and that if the court  was to be decentralized sittings should be held where the cases  originated, and not in two places so close together as Victoria and  Vancouver.  Tlawthornthwaite, seconded by Oliver,- will move tomorrow  that instead of four sittings a year, the appellate court shall'sit  five times, and that one of the sittings shall be at Nelson. This  may carry.    The debate was adjourned on motion of McBride.  -4  tzzzzz:*azxxzxxxzxzxixxxzzxzzxzzxxzzzxzxxzzxzxzzxzxzzzxixzTzzzxzziTzxzxaxzxxxzxxxxxzxzzxzxzxxxxxzzzxxzxx;crxxxil  INDEMNITY OF $273,000,000  WHAT CHINA MUST PAY TO THE  ALLIED POWERS.  Great Britain and the United States  Dissent From Increased Customs  Duties as Proposed.  Pekin, April 30.���Field marshal  .Waldersee, in the letter which lie  sent to the ministers today, as the  reply of the generals to tho views  of tbe ministers regarding the military questions, discussed yesterday  by the generals in. conference, says  a garrison of 0000 men should be  left at Tien Tsin and the adjoining  districts, Great Britain, France,  Germany and Japan to contribute  1400 men each, aud Italy to cou-  ' tribute 400 men. -To garrison  Suaghai , Kwan, France, Russia,  Great Britain and Germany are to  contribute 300 men each, and Italy  one company until -the forts are  razed. So long as any forts are  occupied in China the foreign military commanders must exercise the  full authority of a civil administration according to tho principle  established at The Hague in 1S99.  The Chinese may remain in office,  as in the case at Ting Fu and partly  at Tien Tsin.  Besides the GOO men in the Tien  Tsin district, Avarships, whicli must  be always-in the Pei Ho, will preserve communication with the international fleet at Taku. To allow  this administration to depend in  any respect ou the mandarins would  be au utter impossibility. Frictions  would arise immediately, which  wouldlead to difficulties and con-  ~~flicts which will be better avoided.  The placing of the civil administration under the military has a  further great advantage. It would  be iueonvenient to the Chinese  government, which would therefore  endeavor to get out of it speedily  by the settlement of peace conditions. When the troops at Tieu  Tsin are reduced to 2000, by the  granting of possibly a quarter of  tlie concessions, then the question  of an absolute Chinese administration may be considered.  Concerning the question of evacuation opinions were divided. The  British, Japanese and Germans  commauders were of the opiniou  that the evacuatiou could not commence until China had accepted and  paid the total indemnities. The  French commander would commence by withdrawing 9000 iu a  fortnight, and completing tlie withdrawal of the troops iu six. weeks,  leaving only colonial troops here  on account of the climatic conditions. The Italian and the Austrian commanders had no suggestions, and general Chaffee abstained  from expressing an opinion, general  Wogacke, the Russian commander,  was not present at the recent meetings of the generals and Russia was  not represented.  The question of evacuation is  most difficult on account of tlie approaching hot season, which is very  injurious to the health of tlie  troops, and which also will increase  the costs of the war indemnity immensely, resulting in the loss of  hundreds of soldiers, and probably  mean the retention of the troops  for the winter. The generals were  unanimously of the opinion that  the question would be more speedily  solved if the ministers would treat  separately regarding the amount  of indemnity and method  of raising it. The second  past of this question must  take many months before a solution  can be found, on account of the  difficulty' of the matter. Ou the  question of indemnity being considered and China expressing her  willingness aud ability to pay, the  moment will have arrived to commence the evacuation, the execution  of which will require several  months, so- the reduction will be  very gradual. The generals are  convinced that 2000 men at Pekin,  1500 at Shanghai-Kwan, and 2000  on the railroad, and altogether  12,000 with the fleets at Takii and  Shanghai, will be a fully sufficient  force to compel China to accept the  demand, for, and manner of payment of indemnity. Count von  Waldersee and a party of officers  left Pekin this morning to visit the  great wall aud the Ming tombs.  Paris, May 1.���The for'egn office  has received" a dispatch from Pekin  announcing that M. Pichon, the  French minister, presented today  the report of the committee on in-.  deranity. The amount China is to  pay has been fixed at.. 1,365,000,000  francs. How it is "proposed that  the indemnity \,be distributed  among the powers is not set forth,  but the dispatch does not mention  The Hague, so it is' thought the  ministers are hopeful of being able  to settle the proportion to be received by each power by a discussion at Pekin. Official advices;received here from Pekin say the  ministers are divided into two parties in the discussion to decide how  China is to raise the indemnity.  France, Germany, Russia and Japan  agree in favor of raising the customs duties, which cau be relied  upon to produce a great part of the  requisite sum, and the imposition  of a duty on junks, which will constitute a tax on inland navigation,  and the taking over of some of the  _Jiki_u, proviucial transib^_duties._  On the other hand, the United  States and Great Britain decline to  agree to an increase of the customs  duties, but they do -not appear to  have presented . a counter proposi  tion. The fact that the United  States and Great Britain have  joined hands on this question has  caused surprise here. It was hoped  the United States wcmld sta,nd with  France and Russia. The result will  be to protract the negotiations, r  -- Bkrlin, May 1.���A despatch from  field marshall Von Waldersee, dated  Pekiu, April 30,. says: "Lesset's  column lias returned.- He reports  that the Chinese which he encountered at the great wall belonged to  the province of. Ho Nan, Hu Peh,  Kwang Si and Shan Si, and numbered 15,000 meu. They retreated  in complete disorder and were pursued eight kilometres. The French  troops have been withdrawn also  from Ho Kieti and Hi Eu."  Conference Will Be Lively.  Vancouver, May,,!.���[Special to  The Tribune.]���The British Columbia Methodist conference, whieh  opens at Nelson next week, may be  expected to be a very lively session.  The conference is determined to  take the administration of missionary affairs out of the hands ol the  geueral mission board of Toronto,  and do the administering at home  in British Columbia. The annual  synod meeting opened tonight with  a sermon by Rev. G. A. Wilson.  Cameron, the escaped convict of  Columbia arson fame, was rearrested today at Pitt river. His  method of escape was unique, he  having tilted the top of a ladder  over the prison wall and thus  escaped without notice.  LOCAL IMPROVEMENT PLAN  TO BE INTRODUCED IN NELSON  AT ONCE.  Pay  for  What  Tou   Get, and Take  Chances of Getting What  You Pay For.  An adjourned meeting bf the  city council was held last night,  at which there was a full.attendance.  The finance committee recommended payments to the amount  of $485. This included an item of  $180 for services rendered by Dr.  Symonds, as assistant medical  health" officer. The report was  adopted and checks ordered to be  issued for same.  Local Improvement System Suggested  The public works committee submitted the following report: Your  committee havie had under consideration the question of the various  improvements,- such as the construction of sewers, grading streets,  laying sidewalks and water mains,  and are of-the opinion that the cost  of construction of sewers and sidewalks and the grading of streets  should be charged to the owners of  land immediately -benefitted by  such improvements. Your committee are of opinion that especially  in the cases of absent owners of  residentai'unimproved lots in the  city, the amount paid as taxes by the  owners has been altogether incommensurate as compared with the  benefits accruing to them from the  works of improvement carried out  by the city. Your committee,  therefore recommend that a'by-law  be introduced and passed by  council-under section 245 of the  Municipal Clauses Act "for providing the means of ascertaining and  determining what land or real property will be immediately benefitted by. any proposed / improvement, the expense of which is proposed to be assessed upon the laud  or" the" real' property benefitted  thereby, and of ascertaining and  determimng.theproportion in whicli  the assessments to be made_on the  various portion of land or real  property so benefitted. .  Mayor Fletcher: I think the time  has come when the local improvement system will have to be introduced here as it is in other cities,  when some of the people who are  anxious to have work done will  have the opportunity of paying for  what they want.' They are asking  to have streets opened up and. sidewalks laid, and if the work is to be  done we can borrow money under  tlie local improvement clause and  issue debentures.  ���-Alderman���Paterson���asked-if "it-  were not possible to estimate the  revenue derivable should the. local  improvement scheme be.^adopted,  and in reply to him it was suggested that the : engineer might  possibly be able to give an estimate.  Alderman Paterson asked if the  new system would mean a rate per  frontage foot. \  :\ Mayor Fletcher replied: That is  the pnly_way you can do it. The  money can. be .raised'and spread  over .fifteen"'. or'; twenty years. If  people want improvements'and are  willing to;pay for-them, the money  can be raised; "People who object  can petition against it if they wish.  Alderman^ Hamilton favored the  proposition;* %Th\ypeople-in the outlying districts contributed very  little to the city revenue and were  now demanding a lot of improvements.  It was decided to adopt.the principle of local improvement and to  ���have a bylaw drafted embodying  the same.  Minor Repairs Ordered.  A second report from, the' same  committee was submitted as  follows:  (1) With reference to the application of G. W. Hall for water connection your committee recommends that a pipe be laid so as to  afford water supply to Mr. Hall's  house and to the residence of W. E.  Coles in the same block; (2) That  a 4-foot sidewalk be laid on the  south side of Houston street, from  Stanley to Kootenay street; (3)  That the 3-foot sidewalk on the  south side of Silica street be extended 50 feet; (4) That a crossing  be laid on the south side of Observatory street across Kootenay  street and sidewalk laid westerly  75 feet; (5) That Richard street be  opened tip from Stanley to Kootenay street; (6) That tha stumps of  trees how lying on Stanley^ street  between Robson "and Innes street  be burned, and the roadway of  Stanley street between these streets  repaired; (7) That the water main  on Robson street from Stanley to  Falls street be lowered, and the  present 2-inch pipe-replaced by a  4-inch galvanized iron -main; (8)  That the main roadway through  the city cemetery be improved and  made passable for vehicles; (9) That  the necessary paints be purchased  for painting the cemetery buildings; the work to be done by the  caretaker.  The reporfc^was adopted.  Bylaw 93, repealing former  money1 bylaws, was introduced  and put through its third reading. It repeals . bylaws 68, 69,  70, 71 and 72, all bf whieh raised  money for specific purposes. The  present bylaw amalgamates all  these. A special meeting of the  council will be held on Friday to  ratify the bylaw.  A letter was read from J. Laing  Stocks re corrugated -iron" building  which he proposes to erect, and  asking why he should be denied  the right to put up such a shed.  A long discussion' ensued, during  which alderman Selous held that  the fire limit bylaw should be adhered to and, no special privileges  allowed. The'bylaw was produced  and the various clauses touching  on the point debated. A "building  was mentioned in which corrugated  iron was used, contrary to the bylaw, within the past few weeks and  without any permit having been  issued. The matter was referred  back to the fire wardens and- the  council adjourned to Friday evening.  The Kootenay Cigar Company.  The opening of the Kootenay  Cigar Company under new auspices'  took place yesterday,, and judging  from the number of friends who  called to accept the hospitality of  the firm, success is-assured. 'In September, 1898, the smokers of Nelson  were first given the privilege of  enjoying the fragrance of a home-  manufactured'eigar, and^that.they  appreciate the fact* has since been  testified .to by the liberal  patronage accorded the enterprise. Yesterday T. J. Sims  retired from the business and S. A.  Kelly stepped into his shoes. 'Popular as -was the principal of the  "manufacturing" company, his  successor enjoys as much of public  esteem, and will continue .to conduct .the': business on the lines laid  down,* which make the product of  the factory a general favorite, not  alone in the Kootenays, but  throughout the province. The company is deserving of- support altogether independent of the sentimental aspect. It turns out good  cigars and its payroll is all spent in  Nelson. The cigars are all union  made. . =   The Burns-Goff Contest.  Interest in the approaching sparring contest between Burns and  Goff', which takes place in Nelson  on the 10th, is growing, and the  training quarters of the two men  were visited by several yesterday.  Burns yesterday had four fast  rounds with George Lawler, the  Irish giant, and pleased, his admirers immensely. Goff had the  gloves on in the fire hall with a  well-known heavyweight amateur  who has met somo of the best amateurs in his class. When he got  through he pronounced GofT tho  cleverest man he has encountered.  Both men aro training carefully and  will doubtless meet each other at  their best.  A Three Days' Fast.  Jim Costigan, an old-time prospector, dropped iuto Ainsworth tho  other day in such a condition that  some of his old friends did not  recogni/.e him. He had started  from Kaslo for Kokanee creek, but  got lost over the divide, the snow  obliterating what is' usually accepted as a well-defined trail. He  was three days without food, and  experienced all the disadvantages  of mountain climbing on an empty  stomach. When he struck camp ho  was very weak.  A Distressed Oid-Timer.  Martin Fry, an old-timer, was  yesterday seeking the aid of early  comers to Nelson to enable him to  get out of town. Among others  approached was mayor Fletcher,  who seemed anxious to apply the  labor test. He offered Martin work  on the streets but the offer was not  gracefully accepted.  SERGEANT KELLY HONORED  ���f.i.-*;..YJjg  -�����$��5*1  7:h-  , ',-���  ���'-?  ��� *>������  -c'-t  JTTTITTTriTIITTTtTrTrrTTTTTT^TTTTrTT^TTTrTTTTTrTTTTVrTTTTTT-rrTTTTTTTTTyTTTTTTTTTTTr.-  A   SON   OF  ENGLAND WITH AN  IRISH NAME  Who Served With Strathcona's Horse  and Was Mentioned in the  Dispatches,  There was a large and thoroughly  representative gathering in Fraternity Hall last night to do honor to  sergeant S. A. Kelly, a returning  member of the Strathcona Horse.  The    gathering   was   under    the  auspices of- Nelson Queen, No. 241  S. O. E.,-but as will be seen from  the appended list of those present,  the Sons of Eugland were not alone  ' in doing the honors, as there /were  many representativesof the Emerald  Isle'and Old Scotia in attendance,  whose enthusiasm was conspicuous.  T. Morley, past president, presided,  and to his right sat the guest of  the evening, sergeant Kelly.    To  his left sat mayor  Fletoher, and  among those at the tables were J.  M. Lay, W. B. Winters, O. Newling,  F. Starkey, C. B. Cave, R. W.'Day,  J. Lahore,   R.  M.  Macdonald, W.  McGuire, Rev. A. H. Akehurst, Dr.  Arthur, A. G. Lang, G. C. Williams,  R. G. Joy, J. A. Hindle, C. W. Wal-  croft, G; Darts, J. Duck, D. Darts,  F.     Deacon,      S.      M.     Brydges,  Fred.   J.   Squire,   G.   H.   Fraser,  F.   E.    Weir,    William    Douche,  C. Wilkinson, A Blaney, Walter T  Cooper, Fred Smith, R.. James, G.  Macleod, J. ,W. Davidson,   A.   B.  Buckworth, D. M.  Carley,  Michael  Jones, Geo. M. Phillips, T. G. Haul-  tain, J. K. Strachan, Melvelle Parry,  E. Grizzelle, E.  Sutcliffe, Thos. J.  Sims, A. Lowe, C.   S.- Hawthorne  W. J Astley. -  The cloth having-been cleared,  the toast list was started with "The  Immortal Memory of Queen Victoria," which was received in impressive silence. "The King" was  accorded a warm reception and  cheered to the echo, after which  .the;national.anthem ^vas sung with  vigor. ^"The duke and duchess of  Cornwall and royal family" was  also loyally received.  "The ^navy, army aud reserve  forces" brought David -Carley to  .his feet to say a good word for the  navy. The speaker avowed that  his only naval experience was as  one of the Canadian voyageurs, and  iu this connection he gave some interesting anecdotes.  On behalf the army lieutenant  Phillips' made a neat little speech,  pointing out tliat the Rocky Mountain Rangers of Nelson made the  best showing of any company in  the country, sending out to South  Africa nineteen men and two officers out of a strength of forty-five.  F. E. Weir, one of the King's  Own-of Toronto;-responded~for the  reserve forces, and spoke of the  willingness with which the reserve  men volunteered for service in  South Africa.  Tlie toast of the evening was  drunk with great enthusiasm. In  song sergeant Kelly was avowed a  jolly good fellow, and amid three  cheers and a few tigers he kept his  seat while all his friends were  emptying their glasses. In proposing tho toast the chairman alluded to  the valor of the Strathcona Horse,  and said that if their guest did not  bring back with him the Victoria  Cross lie at least had tho honor of  being mentioned in the dispatches.  (Cheers). Lord Kitchener had said  that if the members of the Strathcona Horse but knew the trouble he  had in answering requests for their  services they would pity him ���  showing that the generals in the  war fully appreciated the valor of  tho men. However, two-thirds of  the Stratlicona Horse were iEng-  Iishmen or Sons of England.  (Applause).  Sergeant Kelly, in rgply, thanked  his friends for the honor done him,  aud said that so far as the Strathcona Horse were concerned too  much could not be said for them,  but he modestly ignored any credit  for anything ho had done. When  he went to South Africa his original intention was to remain there  ���if his life wero spared. But he  soon realized that Nelson was a  better place than any in South  Africa. Consequently he returned,  aud here he was to stay. (Applause).  "The Sons of England" was  responded to by Fred Starkey, district deputy, and he gave some  very interesting particulars. The  oider was started in Toronto in the  year 1874.   There were but seven  -"��"H  HOW JIM HILL WOULD AMEND THE RAILWAY BILL  Or What the Helmcken Bolters Want.  H     .-v^l  . Victoria, May 1.���[Special to The Tribune.]���There are no.  new developments in the railway situation.

The  Sons     of     England      contributed  to   ". the     Mansion     House     fund  $1000, besides subscribing liberally  to      the      Red      Cross      contingent   sent   from    this    dominion.  The   present   membership   of  the  order was over 15,000, and it had  paid out during the quarter century  of its existence $117,000 in  funeral  expenses, $205,000 "to the.widows  and orphans of members and  sick  and medical benefits totalling $410,'-  000.

Lay to their  .feet, and they each spoke of the  -^part-that���Englishmen .played ���in  "trade aud commerce.  "The ladies," were well handled  by S. M. Brydges, and during the  night songs were sung by E. Gra-  zille.R. M, Macdonald, O. Newling,  C. B. Winter, Melville Parry, T.  Weir and others.  A most enjoyable evening was  brought to a close by the singing of  Auld Lang Syne.  Canadian Pacific Railway Changes.  J. S. Lawrence has arrived in  Nelson to take the.position of local  train master iu the C. P. It. service.  J. Hamilton will fill the post of chief  train dispatcher, and will be assisted by Messrs. Lewis and Armstrong, two new arrivals. K. .A.  Armstrong,���oue_of_the-old-train  dispatchers here, goes to Nakusp  on relief service. The importance  of Nelson is every day more forcibly recognized by the big company,' who. are making this point  more than ever, the chief one in the  Kootenays.  Kitchener Reports Another Skirmish.  London," May 1. ��� A despatch  from lord Kitchener, dated from  Pretoria today says: "Grenfell  attacked the Boers at Bergplantz,  New Halvertsbvrg, where tlie last  Long Tom opened fire at 10,000  yards. Kitchener's scouts advanced  to within 3,000 yards, when the gun  was blown tip and tlie Boers fled.  Ten of them were made prisoners.  Other columns report ten Boers  killed, six wounded, six made  prisoners, and sixty surrendered  and 30,000 rounds of ammunition  captured. The British had four  killed and seven wounded."  London, May 1.���The Sun today  iu a double-leaded item describes  lord Salisbury as perturbed by certain revelations which the financial  adviser of lord Kitchener has unearthed. The premier is also pictured by the Sun as not in as good  health as recent announcements  have led the public to believe. It  is also admitted that there is friction between lord Salisbury and  lord Lansdowne.  Defenders Trial Races.  New York, May 1.���The annual  circular issued by the New York  Yacht Club, in relation to the programme for the season lias been  prepared. No trial races between  the Constitution and Columbia will  take place off Sandy Hook, over the  American cup course, as was the  case with the Columbia and Defender.

Whether or_not  the miners will actually strike de-;  pends largely on the trend of' the  discussion of the coal tax resolution, which comes up in the house  of commons tomorrow.  Although it is generally supposed;  the coal owners have been backing'  the miners with the object of bring--  pressure on the government to modify the coal taxation project, there-  are signs of a division of opinion,  since   the   federation   reached   its  grave decision, and some of the influential   owners,   especially those  not exporting coal, are counseling  prudence.   The miners' reason for  advocating a strike appears  tobe  based on the fear that  the owners  will   recoup   themselves   from the  tax by an equivalent reduction in  wages.   ii  Oft) I  The Ainsworth Camp.  Great activity is reported in the  Ainsworth camp. The Highland  mine still employs a staff' of men on  development work. The Highlander is working full blast and the  Star will follow suit. The King  Solomon has so far progressed that  it is expected to join the regular  shippers shortly. On tho Fourth  of July they are making arrangements for an active season's operations. On the whole the Ainsworth camp promises to be lively  this year. P. L'vrsen is makiug  arrangements for starting a new  tunnel at the Eden Crescent ou  Coffee creek.  Small-Pox at Lethbridge.  A notice was posted iu town yesterday signed by the medical health  officer of Lethbridge, Alberta, denying "extravagant reports along the  C.P.R. that the town is quarantined  for small-pox." It is admitted that;  there are "a few mild cases, which  are isolated in an hospital for that  purpose," but it is claimed that the  outside public need not fear contagion from that point, as measures  for the suppression of the disease  are most stringent.  Nelson Rifle Association.  A meeting of the Nelson Rifle  Association has been called for  tomorrow night to discuss matters'  of interest to local riflemen. The  meeting will be held in the offices  of captain H. E. Macdonnell over  the C. P. It. offices on Bakor street.  Rocky ��� Mountain Rangers will be  there in strength, and local riflemen not in the corps are expected  to turn up. The business is itn*  portant and interesting. THE  TRIBUNE:  NELSON, B.

British Columbia is possibly  the only province iu the Dominion  ~ in which the court of appeal sits  outside of the capital, but in British Columbia a departure has  been made which provides for  sittings of the court at Vancouver  as well as at Victoria. This was a  concession to the lawyers of Vancouver. What Mr. Houston now  proposes in the legislature is, that,  ' if the established rule is departed  from, litigants should receive some  "   consideration; and since the hold-  -'. ing of the court at Vancouver is  virtually no more convenient to  the great body of - litigants than  would be the holding of court at  Victoria, the court should sit at  Nelson as well as Victoria. This  naturally arouses the antagonism  of the Vancouver members, but it  is not unlikely that a compromise  maybe arrived at by-which the  court shall sit at Nelson as well as  Victoria and Vancouver.  - It. is not unlikely that "Tom"  - Johnson of Cleveland will be placed  in' nomination as Democratic candidate for president of the United  States in 1904. Johnson is a man  of many seeming contradictions.  He   was born lucky, and became  ' immensely wealthy through his  own genius and exertion, aud by  . taking advantage of laws and social  conditions which he has consistently  denounced as unfair and unjust. He  ���is-khown througlioutrthe=east=as=  the millionaire anarchist.     He is  the antithesis of senator Hanna���a  champion of the masses who does  not affright tho classes:  That lead smelter which Mr.  Hyams was going to build so suddenly at Fernie seems to have  suffered an eclipse upon the granting bf the much talked of charter  to the Crow's Nest Southern rail-  ��� way. While the railway charter  was yet to be granted this imaginary smelter was brought very close  to the silver-lead mine-owners of  the Slocan, but now that the charter  is granted it develops that Mr.  Hyams' plan is not to build a  smelter, but to have a man look  over the country and report on the  possibilities of the smelting situation. '  Goodwin Smith, who does most  of the heavy thinking in Canada  upon social and political questions,  does not agree with count Leo Tolstoi as tb the full emancipation of  the czar's subjects or serfs. He  says that for anything better than  a benevolent autocrat the masses  of the Russian people are yet unripe.

Count Sternberg, an Austrian  soldier of fortune who served with  the Boers in South Africa, has published his experiences of the war.  Probably the most interesting  statement is Sternberg's estimate of  the Boer forces actually in the field.  These he places at 35,000 men, exclusive of the colonial rebels.  The Toronto Globe has presented  its readers with brief pen sketches  of the members of British Columbia's legislature. The Globe uses  them all kindly and gives Joseph  ���Martin the place of honor as tlie  most striking personage of the lot.  As nothing further has come  from Victoria to indicate that  James J. Hill has secured his rail-  wayLsubsidyjiPon his own terms jt  may be presumed that the cabinet  crisis is still on.  Canada's census or stocktaking  costs something over $250,000.  Machinists Strike at Buffalo.  Buffalo, May 1.���Five hundred  machinists in this city, aud probably 800 more in Erie county, outside of Buffalo, struck this morning  to secure a nine-hour day without  decrease of pay. This conclusion  was reached last night at a stormy  and long drawn out meeting which  had adjourned at 2 o'clock this  morning. Many of the local shop?,  at a conference with the men yesterday, agreed to the demands of  the union and will not be affected  by the strike. It is understood  that the local movement is the forerunner of a strike that may extend  all over the Uuited States and Mexico on May 20th, when a general  demand for a nine-hour day will be  made.  A Fuss  Over Nothing.  Washington, May 1,���The national guard at the American legation at Pekin will not be subjected  to the orders of a foreign general.  Official reports of the latest phase  of the negotiations at Pekin, as  told in these dispatches, have not  yet reached Washington, and it is  suggested as a possibility that the  demand in this regard of the international generals is not unqualified.  Still, if it is, the American legation  guard will retain its independence,  even if it is necessary to that end  to remove it from Pekin and from  China. The latter course might become necessary in case one of the  powers formally declares war upon  China, and exercises   its   right to J  cause the withdrawal of all neutral  forces, but under existing conditions the guai d probably will re-,  main.  CHINESE  COMPETITION. *  To the Editor of the Tribune:  The other day while walking up  Stauley street I was much surprised to see two Chinamen exca-  cavating for a retaining wall. The  person for whom they were working said that he could not got  white men to suit him, as he wanted  gardeners. Now, Mr. Editor, there  are several good gardeners in Nelson, any of whom would have  worked for this gentleman providing he paid them decent wages, but  of course John will work for much  lower wages than the white men  would ask.' Any way, the Chinamen are not doiug gardening, bub  simply shoveling dirt, the standard  wage for such-work being $2.50 per  day- of nine hours. This is the  third time within the mouth where  Chinese labor has supplanted white  labor. A certain business-man had  a Chinaman digging a ditch for  him, but when it came to putting  in the flume a white laborer was  called in, much to the dissatisfaction of the business man. as he  then had to pay'union wages. The  other occasion was a few days ago  when four Chinamen unloaded a  scow of bricks. 0Afc this rate it  won't be long before Nelson will be  as bad as some of our Coast cities,  and then the white laborer will  only have to come down to John's  level or pull out.

At 3 o'clock   the   turnstile  clicked, and the first of the  many  millions of  people who -will visit  tho beautiful rainbow city during  its   six months'   existence   passed  round to'view and study.. the products of American iugeuuity and  scientific research, and fche resources  of    the   two   continents   of . the  western hemisphere, ^which fill  the  magnificieht surrounding buildings;  beautiful in their architectural design and harmonious in their coloring and interior- decorations."

IfcTZELSOIN"  STORES   AT  KASLO  S^ZsTZDOZEsT  No ceremonies marked the opening of the gates this morning, ifc  having been decided by .the management of the exposition to combine the opening day ceremonies  with those of dedication day, on  May 20th. The change in the date,  however, did not cause a moment's  relaxation of the strenuous efforts  being put forth-by those in connection with the exposition to have  everything as 'nearly . ready as  possible for, today's opening. The  appearance ,;-',of.-' the' buildings and  grounds this 'morning bore, ample  evidence of their \ efforts. The  storm and the inevitable delays incident to any. undertaking of this  magnitude rendered impossible the  realization of., the hope that this  might be the first of the great expositions to be complete on its  opening "day, but so much more  already has been wrought than was  deemed possible at the inception of  the .project,-that all are satisfied  with the extent of the fair as it appeared this morning, carried through  from the beginning by the citizens  of Buffalo without state or federal  aid.  .  Socialist Riot at a Funeral.  Paris, May 1. ��� The body of  madame Paule Mincke, the agitator  .who was transported in connection  with' the Commune, troubles, and  was subsequently granted amnesty  and died last week,-.was buried in  Pere la Chais cemetery today.

At the cemetery a conflict occurred  between the. * socialists aiid -the  police, the'latter endeavoring to  suppress revolutionary cries. Several arrests were made.  BUSINE8B   MENTION.
