NELSON, B. 0., TUESDAY MORNING,  APRIL 23,  1901  PRICE FIVE CENTS  ANARCHISTS AFTER WILLIAM  GERMAN EMPEROR ISINGLED OUT  FOR ASSASSINS.  Berlin Police Now Looking for a Man  Who   Was   Commissioned  To  Do the Job.  Berlin, April 22.���With reference  to the statements cabled from the  Uuited States of a plot said to have  been concerted against emperor  William and other European rulers  by Anarchists in Argentina and  Now Jersey, extreme reticence is  observed in official circles in Berlin.  After careful investigation, however, a representative of the- Associated Press ascertained iu a reliable  quarter tliat the Berlin police  presidency issued an order on April  Obh for tho arrest whenever or  wherever caught of the alleged  anarchist, Rodolfo Romagnoli, alias  Romanisso, alias Langkwich Mueller.  The order simultaneously requested  all inland and foreign authorities  to assist in .apprehending Roniag-  uolio. Photographs of the alleged  anarchist, with a minute description by the Bertillon method were  furnished for identification.  The information received by the  Berlin authorities was thatRomag-  nolio had been formally chosen by  the alleged nest of conspirators in  Paterson, New Jersey, .to murder  emperor William. They were further informed that he left Buenos  Ay res on March 27 th, ou board the  North German Lloyd steamer Halle,  for Bremen. Whether this information i" correct they have no  means of knowing, but since a portion of it is official they are inclined  to give it credence.  Emperor William has been advised as to the situation! and has  issued strict orders to the president  of the Berlin police, baron Von  Windlieinr, to keep him informed  as to all similar news, but that under no conditions is the matter to  be brought to the attention of the  . empress. It is.a fact that for some  months the Berlin police have kept  a. very close watch upon known  anarchists .in tho city; and an unusually careful surveillance of arrivals known or suspected to be of  anarchistic affiliations. Antonio  Porporello, who was here until a  few days ago, fled to Bentheim,"  where he was arrested. The Berlin  authorities seem to know nothing  about the alleged plots against emperor Nicholas and king Victor  Emanuel.  Samples for Selection.  Architect Macdonald yesterday  forwarded to Ottawa samples of  the Kaslo and Salmo marble, also of  ~~locarbrickrtobe used"in-the new  government buildings at Nelson.  The contractor appears to favor  the Kaslo marble because he believes it can be produced 'more  cheaply than cau the Salmo  material. The pressed brick of  local manufacture appears to be an  excellent article, and will no doubt  be adopted. As to the marble, the  department   of   public   works   at  '..Ottawa ..will'.have something to say  iu the matter of selection.  Vancouver Company's Good Record.  At a meeting of the board of directors of the British Columbia Permanent Loan & Savings Company  held at the head office in Vancouver on Thursday, the 18th inst.  Seventeen loans were granted,  amounting to $13,175, making a total of ninety-five loans, amounting  to $81,250 granted by this enterprising company during the last  eight weeks. This is a record which  every one connected with the company has reason to be proud of.  The Quarantined Footballers.  The Ave Nelson men'quarantined  at Cranbrook are expected back  tbis evening. Tbey have put in  sixteen days of medical surveillance  and have shown no symptoms of  the contagion. Although they  made things as pleasant as possible  at the.hotel, they will make them  pleasanter wheu they get without  its portals. A letter received from  oue of the number reports a fresh  case at Moyie.  Found the Lost Needle.  Dr. LaBau yesterday performed  a very successful operation by the  aid of his X-ray appliance. A  couple   of   weeks   ago   the   little  daughter of George Robinson, of  the Bodega, had a'needle broken in  her hand, the eye end penetrating  the flesh a couple of inches. The  child complained of soreness, but  the. parents were unable to assign a  cause until they accidentally discovered the broken needle. Then  the little one was taken to the surgery, the X-rays applied and the  cause of trouble immediately located. About a quarter of an inch  of the steel, with a bit of thread  attached, had been in the flesh for  two weeks. This was promptly removed, to the great relief of the  little sufferer.  PUGILIST SMITH MAY DIE  ROBERTS'  TO  PUNISHMENT   LIKELY  PROVE FATAL.  Serious Termination of the Fight for  the Welterweight Championship of England.  London, April 22.���At the national  sporting club tonight Jack Roberts*  of England, knocked out . Billy  Smith, the American, in the eighth  round. The fight was for the nine-  stone championship of England.  During the' first three rounds  everything was in favor of Smith,  who showed himself decidedly the  more clever of the two men, but  for the remainder of the contest  Roberts had his own way and he  dealt out a lot of severe body  punches. In the fifth round Smith  made no attempt whatever to defend himself. He was twice knocked  down and then counted out. Sub-,  sequently it became known that his  right arm was dislocated in the  fourth round, and at the finish his  legs were badly cramped.  After the fight Smith was' removed to a hospital, where he was  still unconscious at 2 o'clock this  morning. It is feared that his injuries will prove fatal.  New York, April 22.���Smith,  who received such serious injuries  in his contest with Roberts, the  undefeated featherweight of England, is a New Yorker and resides  on the east side of Manhattan  Island. His fighting in "cthis country before he crossed the Atlantic  showed him to be a boxer of fine  promise, and his American friends  counted on his defeating Roberts,  although it was expected that he  would have a hard light on his  hands.  At  was still unconscious.  morning Smith  The Fall of William Fell,  William Pell has played a prominent part in police annals since his  arrival in- Nelson from the Coeur  d-'���Alene-country���several-months  ago. He has put in most of his  time since his advent in this city in  the provincial jail, nor was the lockup au unfamiliar.quarter. A week  ago the police were rejoicing over  the fact that Pell had left town.  The man u went to Ainsworth to  work on the Highlander." He returned ou Saturday and went direct to the Kootenay Lake General  Hospital, where he was admitted  because of symptoms of general  debility. Shortly after 3 o'clock on  Sunday morning the ��� police were  summoned by telephone to remove  a demented patient and when they  got there were not a little surprised  at once again encountering William  Pell. The man was delirous, presumably from - the effects of alcoholic refreshments. He was making things very lively at the hospital, undertaking to clear the whole  establishment, and was promptly  removed to the lock-up; where he is  now held awaiting developments.  Pell labors under the hallucination  that he is about to ibe electrocuted  aud will allow no one to approach  him.  Importuning Travelers.  Complaints are numerous as to  the over-zeal displayed by hotel  runners in securing custom for  their respective houses at the depot.  As soon as a train arrives the platform is swarmed by these solicitous  representatives of local hostelries,  who often succeed in making things  very /uncomfortable for travelers.  At the old station house there used  to be a dead-line on the platform  beyond which the runners could  not go under pain of police interference. . A similar arrangement at  the new depot would be accepted  as a boon by the traveling public.  THE WORST IS NOW OVER  STORM  IN  CAUSED GREAT DAMAGE  ALLEGHENY VALLEY.  Boy's Wild Race on a Wheel to Save  the Pennsylvania From Impending Wreck.  Pittsburg, Pennsylvania, April  22.���While western Pennsylvania  was fairly out of the clutches of  the flood this morning, fears of a  quick repetition of the disaster, and  perhaps on' an increased .scale,  seems to haunt the people. Weather  conditions are not reassuring. It  is again raining, in Pittsburg, and  advices from the headwaters of the  Allegheny showed a renewed rise,  with a continued downpour, the  warmer temperature' acting oil the  snow being a factor that also caused  some apprehension. It is impossible  to approximate the loss resulting  from the high .waters. Estimates  vary from $1,000,000 to $3,000,000,  but the first figures will probably  come nearer the correct amount.  The mills and factories along the  river fronts will not- be able to re;  sume before tomorrow. -The railroads are rapidly getting into shape  again, and by evening it is expected  that all trains will be running on  schedule time.  Pittsburg, April 22.���One of the  thrilling incidents connected with  the flooded conditions prevailing in  this state was the hairbreadth  escape from destruction of a Pennsylvania Limited train, westbound,  near Tyrone yesterday. A boy  riding frantically at the side of the  track on a bicycle,-wildly waving,  his* cap, gave the .warning to the  engineer that saved the train from  going full speed into a landslide.  Even as it was the train ran into a;  large rock, knocking the.cowcatcher  off the engine and badly wrecking  it. At Altoona another engine was  secured. Some of the passengers  at the union station last night say  they thought the train must have  been running nearly sixty miles an  hour when the passengers were  suddenly thrown forward in their  seats' by the application of the  brakes by the engineer. Some who  were looking out of their windows  at the time saw the boy on the  wheel waving his cap as the train  flew by him. The engineer had  difficulty in handling his train,  which was not only running fast,  but was heavy and the rails were  slippery, which made checking its  speed more difficult.  Pittsburg, April 22.���At three  o'clock   this   morning    the    three  rivers were receding at the rate of  -three-inches-an���hour.���The~Ohio-  river mark is 23.3 feet and falling.  Cincinnati, Ohio, April 22.���The  danger line was reached here today  in the Ohio river flood which started  at the head waters last week and  did so much damage at Pittsburg  and intermediate points. The Mill  creek valley is full of water and doing damage in the west end of Cincinnati. A similar condition exists  in the east end and along the Little  Miami bottoms. The worst condition is along the public landing and  the lower part of this city where  sewers.are blocked and cellars filled  with backwater. A stage of 45 feet  causes damage in this section, and  that stage was reached last even-  iug. - At 53 - feet trains cannot  enter the Grand Central  At 50 feet the baseball  flooded, and .at 58 feet the  the track in "Newport,  must stop.   All of these  station.  park is  ; races at  Kentucky,  limits are  in sight, and most of them come  today. The crest of the Pittsburg  rise is not due till tomorrow, but  the extent of it has .'been closely  anticipated and preparations made  accordingly.  Chicago, April 22.���The great  storm of wind, snow and rain which  prevailed iu the middle-east Saturday, switched around unexpectedly  ou Sunday and swept over lake  Michigan and Chicago. It did damage to property, blew down trees  and shrubbery in the pa^ks aud  boulevards, crippled electric light  wires and whipped the lake into  the heaviest sea of the season.  Shortly after sunrise the wind rose  and began to increase in speed until by noon it was blowing over the  city at the rate of 52 miles an hour.  Early in the day warning signals to  the manners were rung out all  along   the   lakes.     Obeying them  saved more than one vessel from  what would certaiuly have proved  disaster. Vessels remained in  harbor, and boats coming down the  lake, making for Chicago, put in at  convenient ports.  Amsterdam, April 22.���The Mohawk river has risen ten feet since  Saturday night as a consequence of  the heavy rains and is still rising,  already being higher than in many  years before. An abutment of the  West Shore bridge at Pattersonville  gave away this morning and necessitates trains from that road being  run over the Central from Utica to  Central Junction east of this city.  The stream? from the north are.  greatly swollen.  Springfield, April 22.���The reports from the Boston & Albany  inspection indicate that the east-  bound track of that road from this  city to Huntington will be practically useless until extensive repairs  can be accomplished. There beiug  many washouts and many places  where the track is undermined.  The flood rushnd 30 feet deep into  Middlefield. Many houses were  flooded, but only a few wrecked, although barns and outbuildings were  carried away. So far as can be  learned no lives were lost although  here there were many narrow escapes.  Winsted, Connecticut, April 22.  ���An engine attached to a freight  train on the Central New England  railroad, which, was leaving here  this morning, for New Hartford,  where several landslides and washouts occurred yesterday, plunged  through a trestle in the West Winsted yard and went into a raceway.  The crew escaped injury, by jumping. The accident was caused by  high water.  Chattanoga, Tennessee, April  22.���Special despatches from Hunts-  ville, on the top of the Cumberland  mountains, say there is from four  to six inches of show on the ground  there, and it is still falling. It is  extremely cold and much fruit has  been'' spoiled. ��� All this section is  safe.  Cleveland, April 22.���For the  first time in more than 48 hours  trains began-arriving 'in Cleveland'  today on schedule time from the  east. Between this city and Buffalo,  where the storm wrought such  havoc to telegraph and telephone  lines, a limited number of wires  have been restored and placed in  service.  Rochester, April 22.���The Genesee river is once more on the rampage, and during the past 24 hours  the water has gone up three feet.  It is rising at the rate of an inch an  hour this morning. Advices "from  up the valley says the lowlands are  all submerged and that several  streams have run over their banks.  The loss to farmers who have been  plowing will be considerable.  Cut the Record in Two.  London, April 22.���Spencer Col-  Ian, the New Zealand amateur, and  Tom-Sullivan alid~George_Townes,  English professionals,   sculled  104  THE I. 0. 0. F. ANNIVERSARY  miles, from Oxford to Putney in the  Thames yesterday, in 13 hours and  55 minutes, thus beating the record  of 22 hours and 30 minutes made by  R. C. Lehraann, W. H. Grenfell and  W. P. O. Holland in 1899. They had  a strong stream in their favor with  all the locks open, whereas Mr.  Lehman's party carried a coxswain,  did not have aQfavorable tide, and  wero delayed �� at the locks and  troubled by the crowded condition  of the river.   Four Men Drowned.  Erie, Pennsylvania, ��� April 22.���  Four men belonging to the Rockefeller fleet, laid up here in the upper bay, went ashore in a yawl  boat Sunday afternoon. They were  drowned on their return, the first  knowledge of the accident being  the finding of the boat upside down.  There was a fog on the bay and the  sea was high.  Triple Drowning in Ohio.  Marcella, Ohio, .April 22.���  Three persons were drowned in the  river here this afternoon. . A boat  containing nine men was carried  under a wharf by the swift current,  and Joseph Everett, a glassworker,  was drowned. The others were  rescued. Later two boys named  Hanley, aged 7 and 14, were  drowned at the same place.  Ottawa Gets Locomobiles.  Ottawa, April 22.���Satisfied  with the results of experiments in  Toronto, the postoffice department  has purchased two locomobiles for  gathering mails in Ottawa from  street boxes. The system will  eventually be extended to all leading cities.  CELEBRATED IN NESLON UNDER  FAVORABLE CIRCUMSTANCES.  An Interesting History of a Fraternal  Society Which Enjoys Deserved  Popularity.  The 82nd anniversary of the I. O.,  O. P. was celebrated in Nelson last  night by Kootenay Lodge No. 10  and a very successful event it  proved. On the 5 th day of January, 1892 this lodge was established  here, meeting at the time in the little wooden building on Kootenay  street now being occupied by an  upholsterer. Since that date the  order has grown and flourished, until today they occupy and own one  of the best brick blocks in Nelson.  Fraternity hall was put up at a cost  of some $25,000 and in 1899 was  opened by all the fraternal societies  in Nelson with great eclat.  The building is admittedly a  great boon to the friendly societies,  of which this city has ever been a  favorite center. Among the fraternal bodies, none appear to have  made greater progress in British  Columbia and in the Kootenays  in particular, than this. The first  lodge was established in Victoria in  the year 1864, when there were  very few members, but the enthusiastic spirit which the ritual inspires grew rapidly, until today  there are upwards of 4000 members  of the order enrolled iu the  province. Iu ��� 1874 the first  Grand Lodge met in the capital  and since that date the order has  spread till now there are no less  than forty-three lodges meeting  regularly, eight of which have their  homes in the Kootenays, and of  these No. 10 takes the lead in point  of numerical strength; and good  working.  The meeting last night was  presided over by noble grand D. W.  Rutherford, and the business proper  of the lodge���including the initiation of two new members���  having been disposed of, the members proceeded to celebrate in  accepted fashion.  An excellent supper was partaken  of. and when the cloth was removed,  a varied and interesting program  started. There were good speeches,  songs whicli proved worthy of encore, recitations, deservedly applauded, and the fragrance of excellent cigars, with a phonograph  to fill in intervals.  During the evening past grand  E. C. Davison of Kamloops, and now  of the city, gave some interesting  statistics touching upon the growth  and���prosperity-of���the-order.���His  theme was "Odd Fellowship���What  i3 It?" and he described the one  and answered the other. Speaking  of the beneficiary aspect of the  question he showed that up to last  year $203,830 had been disbursed  by the order to the benefit of members and relatives,  On Sunday next the lodge will  meet at Fraternity Hall and march  to the Congregational church, where  special services will be held. All  visiting Oddfellows are invited to  attend.  Kootenay's Assisted Delegates.  Saturday Post.  The delegation of thirty representatives of the mining industry  who went to Ottawa in support of  the governmrnt bonus of $5 a ton  are reported in a Toronto paper as  being unanaimously in favor of the  construction of the Crow's Nest  Southern. This delegation represented millions invested in the mining industry.  Replacing the Compound Engines.  The C. P. R. has decided that the  Baldwin compound locomotives,  which were brought in from the  mountain divisions on the main  line especially for work on the  Phoenix ore trains, are not as well  adapted for this work as the simple  engines. Consequently they are  being replaced by the latter.  MacKenzie Was a Winner.  William MacKenzie, general  agent of the New York Life Insurance Company for the Kootenays, with headquarters in Nelson,  yesterday received advice by wire  from vice-president Perkins, at the  New York office, informing him  that he is one of the twelve agents  of the company who produced the  largest volume of business during  the month of March. Considering  the extensive operations of this  company, employing as it does over  0000 agents, the achievement of Mr.  MacKenzie is highly creditable.  The names of the monthly leaders  are published in bulletin form and  distributed to all the company's  agencies throughout the world, and  this is the first occasion upon which  the Kootenay representative appears on the list. The company  rewards its leaders with a trip to  the general agent's convention,  which is usually held at Champlain  or Saratoga in September of each  year.           AGUINALDO IS INTERVIEWED  QUARANTINE   REGULATIONS  AS THEY ARE ENFORCED IN THE  CITY OF PHOENIX.  A Fee Charged for a Certificate That a  Man Has Not Been Dangerously Near Infection.  SAYS  FILIPINOS    SHOULD  QUIT FIGHTING..  ALL  United States Government Will Realize  the Highest Hopes They Ever  Entertained.  Manila, April 22.���An Associated  Press representative visited Emilio  Aguinaldo this afternoon.     Aguinaldo, whose bearing was courteous  and dignified, was dressed in white,  looked well and altogether made an  excellent    impression.      He'   was  rather reluctant to talk for publication, aud considered every question  carefully   before    answering.     He  said he was doing all  he could  to  assist   in   the pacification   of the  Philippines, and expressed himself  as surprised at what the Americans  had accomplished.    When he was  first captured, he went  on to . say,  he was greatly astonished to find,  that   a    majority    of     the     Filipinos     entertained     the     opinion  that   American   sovereignty   was  preferable   to    independence,   but  now   he   was  inclined" to   believe  that   way   himself.   He explained  that since.the dissolution of the in-:  siirgent congress and the' declaration of guerilla warfare, the   chiefs  had operated to all intents and purposes independently.    They  recognized  him  as  commander-in-chief,  sending   him  reports  occasionally,  and he issued some orders,  but  for  the last seven<-- months communication has been difficult and  he  had  been almost disconnected.  "I am now urging in the strongest possible manner," said Aguinaldo, "that all insurgents should surrender and swear allegiance to the  United States." He expressed the  opinion that Tinio, Luc-ban, Malvar  and other representative insurgents  will surrender as soon as they understand the nature of the amnesty  offered them. He said he hoped  that when tbe work of pacification  was complete and conditions were  settled,   the    prisoners    at   Guam.  would be released. After referring  in grateful terms to the courteous  treatment accorded to him by the  military authorities, he declared his  conviction that the civil government which would follow pacification would realize the highest hopes  of the Filipino people.  a     The Westminster Accusation,  The Presbytery of Westminster  has decided to hold an investigation  on Thursday, May 9th, to determine whether or not Rev. A. E.  Vert shall continue as pastor of St.  Andrew's church, Westminster.  Tlie members of the congregation,  who are trying to get rid of their  pastor, say he has lost his hold  upon the people and were it not for  tbe fact that he has a monopoly of  Presbyterian salvation the church  would not do any business. They  also say that somebody else says  the pastor lied.  Fresh Trouble in Manchuria.  LoNDON,April22.���"Chinese rebels  have again attacked theManchurian  railway," says the St. Petersburg  correspondent of the Daily Telegraph. "They have destroyed 150  versts of the line, removed tlie rails  and broken up the rolling stock.  Moreover they have killed nearly a  whole detachment of rail why  guards. Troops have been sent  from Amur province to the scene of  attack."  Trouble Feared in Butte.  Butte, April 22.���Trouble is expected between the mine owners  and the miners' union on the 1st of  May, This is the last day given by  the machinists for an eight-hour  day, and there is said to be no disposition on the part of the employers to concede the point.  To the systematic attention paid  to quarantine and general health  regulations in Nelson is mainly due  the   happy   immunity    from   in-.  fectious diseases  which this community enjoys.   A few weeks ago  a   couple   of   cases of  diphtheria  were   discovered  in the city and  with    commendable    promptitude  these were isolated uutil all danger  of the spread  of  the "disease  was  over.   Today there is not a single  case   of   diphtheria   in   the   city.  There is one case of smallpox.-im-  ported   from   Phoenix,   and    the  sufferer was promptly located, taken  in charge by   the medical health  officer, and placed in safe keeping..  He is improving daily, but until all -  danger is past he will be held apart  from the citizens.     This mau  was  one of those in the Phoenix bunkhouse,' and  was  discharged  while  yet   the   disease   was   in   its   incubation.    He arrived in Nelson on  a Saturday, and on the following ,  Sunday showed unmistakable signs  of smallpox.     Every  person  with  whom   he   came   in   contact   was  hunted up and subjected to a medical bath and thorough fumigation,,.  and   with   the   desired effect.   In*  this city the medical health officers  work in the public interest. Vaccination is free, certificates  of health -  are   issued    without   cost   to the  parties desiring them, and every- _  thiug is done to protect the public  and   at   the same time   facilitate  the   movements   of   those    whoses _  business calls them out oito^/n.x'-  Commercial men* "and others -.who!"  have    experienced    the   care" and  courtesy, here   shown,     complain .  bitterly of the treatment to' which  they are subjected in  some  of  the  neighboring  towns.    For instance,  a few local men  who ��-were in the  Boundary country last week  complain that  at  Phoenix  they  were  obliged to procure certificates from  the medical health officer  there, in  order  to  secure  an  uninterrupted  journey   through** other   parts *��� of  that   district.     The  gentlemen  iu  question   had   their  clean  bill , of  health from Nelson as well  as  certificates  of vaccination.    But these  did not "go" in Phoenix.   They had  to go before the health officer, who  in consideration  of   a   fee   of .$1  apiece,   certified  that "Mr.    has been successfully vaccinated,"  and "that in my opinion he has not  -been-livingiirot'-dangerously-near  any infected building or locality."  Now, there is a very geueral opinion  that if the medical health officers  of Phoenix paid less attention to  the collection of fees, and' more  attention to the regulations of the  board of health, there would be less  danger from that quarter of the  province. Of the number of men  originally quarantined there, several  developed smallpox after they had  been released. Such a state of affairs  as this is highly unsatisfactory to  other communities into which these  supposedly healthy men are liable  to drift���as in the case of the man  who is now a patient in Nelson.  Dr. LaBau yesterday received a  telegram from the medical health  officer at Grand Forks reading:  "Sixteen days since last case developed at Phoenix. All cases in pest  house outside city. Quarantine  raised, but outgoing trains will be  watched this week."  The point is freely debated  among traveling men iu Nelson as  to whether a health officer is entitled to collect a fee for issuing a  certificate which is practically a  duplicate of the one which they  arm themselves with when they go  from here, an unaffected district,  to one where there is a quarantine.  Business men are not prone to  deliberately go "dangerously near  to any infected building," and that  a fee should be charged to certify  to this fact is no compliment to  their intelligence or sense of danger.

Greenwood, April 22.���[Special  to The Tribune.]���Medical health  officer Dr. Sehou at noon today  lifted the quarantine against Phoenix, where there has beeu a few  mild cases of variloid.  >' >i*|  ���f-   J)  ~f'~vr  h$X  >.: ���  -v  * *?>"'*���'XX  ��� - ;?&���  ,sfel  *-    r   V-l  * ;#  - f 'vV  - . :^?&i  Xr       l^-l  ."Z'&a  7'%M\  J'Mm  y~yf-i  -*l  7d\  / THE  TRIBUNE:  NELSON, B.

Not living in an incorporated  municipality the people of Trout  Lake entrust the management of  their public affairs to a local body  known as a trades committee. The  members of the committee completed their term of office last week,  but, upon producing a certificate of  merit from president Holt of the  Nelson Board of Trade, most of  them -were re-elected. The new  . committee, meets for organization  purposes oh Thursday.  ������ The men who compose the senate  committee ou banking may disagree politically, but when it comes  to having union labels recognized  as trade marks they are all of one  mind. That they as senators are  beyond the reach of the .unions no  doubt explains   their   action, and  ��� the only manner in which a change  can be effected is by reforming the  method by which senators are  made..       '  On its editorial page .the Phoenix  Pioneer says the people of the Coast  and of the interior are  unanimous  ..for Jim Hill's Coast to Kootenay  ��� road, and ��� on  its local  page in the  ' same i'ssue'it recites how the people  of Greenwood turned down the Hill  project in favor of the rpad from  Midway to Vernon.   The Pioneer  should avoid contradicting itself in  each issue.  The Toronto Telegram says the  conditions that have been attached  to the Crow's Nest Southern railway charter stamp it as the best  piece of railway legislation in Canada. These conditions were the  outcome of the fight made against  ihe charter by newspapers and men  whom the Telegram, in common  with lesser newspapers, has persistently maligned.  Parmer Kidd would much prefer to work his land than sit in the  legislature and have the politicians  .work liim. This prompted him to  suggest in the house the other day  that instead of filling in its time in  passing resolutions in favor of the  farmer the legislature would advance agriculture more by adjourn-.  ing and letting the farmer members  get to their hoeing.  Having spent eight weeks in  listening to the aimless speeches of  Smith Curtis and lawyer McPhillips,  the provincial legislature will now  even things up by railroading important legislation through without  even the semblance of due con-  ��� ^deration. ,  ; Rogers' Pass wants a justice of  the peace, aud wants him badly.  ���Kootenay has several that it wants  to get rid of.

BUFFALO'S BIG EXPOSITION  . o  Employs an Army of Men.  Buffalo,   April   22. ��� Director-  general Buchanan said to the representative of the Associated Press  this morning, relative to conditions  at    the    Pan-American    grounds:  "Work on the Pan-American exhibition will be considerably delayed  on account of the late snow storm,  but the exposition will  be thrown  open to the public on May 1st, the  only change in the arrangements  being the consolidation of the opening    and    dedication   ceremonies.  When  the storm came  4000 men  were at work: of these  about 1500  were employed out doors,' principally in  the   preparation   of   tho  courts   and   landscapes, aud they  were completely tied up.  They will  not  be  able  to resume work until  Wednesday. - The indoor work has  been delayed more or less, but it  can go rapidly forward - from now  on.    The force of ��� 4000 will  be increased to 8000 as rapidly as  possible, and will  be worked in  double  shifts, and efforts will be concentrated for the completion of the exposition, the matter of ceremonies  being put; aside   for   the present.  The sun came put this morning and  the day is  warm.   The snow and  water on the grounds are rapidly  drying up."-  Queen Wilhelmina Mad.  London, April 22.���A special despatch, received here from Paris,  reports trouble at the castle of Het  Loo, over- the bachelor debts of  prince Henry, the husband bf queen  Wilhelmina. It is said that shortly  prior to his marriage he promised  his creditors in Berlin and Frankfort to pay one-third of his debts  within a month of the wedding,  but the money has not yet been  forthcoming and the money lenders  have formally applied to queen  Wilhelmina. The latter declared  her husband must pay out of his al-  =ibwance=made"b'y=the=statesf=It=is  now said the creditors have formed  a syndicate and propose to negotiate the prince consort's papers on  the Amsterdam bourse, and queen  Wilhelmina is reported to be very  angry. ���������   .

VAN HORNE'S NEW RAILWAY  Cannot Be Shut Out.  Washington, April 22.���How sir  William Van Home has been  able  to prosecute his railroad enterprise  through Cuba in de-fiance of all the  precaution  taken  by  the administration and congress to prevent the  grant  of  franchises was- disclosed  by sir William to secretary Root in  an interview arranged by the secretary for the purpose.     The  Van  Home undertaking rests, not upon  tho   suspended    general   franchise  law  of Cuba, whicli in its clauses  relating     to     railways     provided  means   for   condemning lands for  rights   of     way,    stations,    sidetracks,    etc.,    by    the    asserting  of eminent domain, but upon a special enactment still in full operation  permitting the  owner  of land to  construct railroads  on  it without  anyone's interference.  This was designed originally for  the  convenience of tho sugar and tobacco planters to expediate the movement   of  their crops; under it they have built  many short lines through their own  premises.    Sir William  has  therefore  bought,   or   is   no,\v   buying,  whole   farms   contiguous  to   each  other,   and   along   the    route"  of  the   trunk    line   which     he     has  planned   from    one    end    of    the  island       to       the      other.        In  this   manner   he   has   secured his  right of way far more expeditiously  and probably with not much more  expense than if he had gone through  the usual process of condemnation  for every mile of the way.    Moreover, every Cuban municipality has  authority, still operative, to. grant  rights of way through and over its  streets, and sir William has taken  advantage of the fact to extend his  lines into the towns along the route.  The municipal oflicers seem anxious  to meet him  half-way,  the  people  having  risen  to   the   notion   that  there future welfare depends upon  their having direct  access  to  this  great artery of the island.  Another Bridge for the St. Lawrence.  Montreal, April 22.���The St..  Lawrence is to be spanned by a  third bridge opposite this city.

Clark,  who is a rival of the American art  collector. Mr. Morgan' first offered  ��25,000 for the picture, whereupon  Mr. Clark offered ��30,000 as the top  price. Mr. Morgan promptly said  that he was willing to pay ��30,000  for it, and as he was a heavy buyer  at all times of costly art work, the  Gainsboro went to him, the agreement being that if he equaled any  bona fide offer he should' have the  refusal. Mr. Morgan stipulated  that the authenticity bf the picture  must be established beyond the  shadow of a doubt. It is apparent  that this has been done.  London, April 22.���Dr.C. K.D.

New York, April 22.���On the  night of April 1st Mrs. Alma Douglas was shot by her husband AIexr  ander, in the flat at 036 Lexington  avenue, one shot entering her body  and the other her head. This afternoon the jury sitting with coroner  Zucca, fixed the responsibility upon  Douglas, who has been in ''Flower  hospital since the crime owing to  an attempt to shoot himself after  killing his wife, and he was sent to  the Tombs for confinement.  Subsequent to the shooting, policeman Cunningham of the 21st  street police station went to the  Flower hospital and had a talk  with Douglas. At that time, so he  testified today, the man told him  following story: " My wife was  working in Harlem at the  time and I was the janitor  of the place on Lexington- avenue.  She had come down to see me and  was lying on the bed crying. I  told her to come back and live  with me, but she said we had not  enough money, aud said to wait  until fall. I can't wait, I answered  her. I was_walking up and down  the room, aud I told her the best  thing was for us both to die. She  said yes, but wanted to know what  we would do about the baby. I  said: 'I have a home for baby.' She  was crying all the time. Then I  took my pistol from the shelf aud I  said: 'Goodbye, Alma.' She did  not answer or move. Then I  pointed the revolver at her. Sho  was holding her hands in front of  her face. Then I placed it close to  her and fired twice, afterwards  standing up straight and firing at  my own breast. I wanted to die  and so did she."

Ottawa, April 22.���The Georgian  Bay, Ottawa & Montreal ship canal  cau be built for $65,000,000, and if  the government will guarantee two  and a half or three per cent on this  expenditure or co-operate in some  other way with the company which  holds the charter for the canal,  then the canal will be built. The  capitalists who financed'* the Manchester ship canal, the Delagoa Bay  railway, many of the Indian rail:  ways and the Amsterdam ship canal  are the parties who are interested  in this Georgian Bay-Ottawa canal  scheme.  This statement was made by  Johnston Edgerly of London, England, who is in Ottawa with Ernest  E. Sawyer of London, England.  They are here representing the  Georgian Bay - Ottawa - Montreal  Ship Canal Company, and are preparing a memorial which they will  present to the government setting  forth the terms upon which the  company is prepared to do the  work. The twenty foot canal, Mr.  Edgerley points out, will be sufficiently deep to allow.lake vessels  from Chicago, Milwaukee, Duluth,  Fort William and other ports to go  direct to Montreal, Quebec, Sydney,  Halifax, St. John or any other Canadian, seaport, or if necessary across  the ocean. When the canal is built  grain will be a cost of  three cents a bushel from the lake  ports to the seaboard, and this will  be a great reduction upon the rate  now paid by shippers of grain.
