Victoria, April 2*1.���British Columbia is again in the throes  of a political crisis, brought about by the government's bill to  borrow five million, dollars to subsidize railways in the province.  Many of the government supporters wanted it explicitly stated  that the subsidy for the line from the Coast-to-Midway would  be given to a company independent of the C. P. R., but the government bill leaves it to the government to say what company  the subsidy shall be given to, the object being to make the best  bargain possible.  Joe Martin, leader of the opposition,is supporting the government bill, and he is being followed by Messrs Brown, Mclnnes and  Stables of the opposition party, while Martin's lieutenant, Smith-  Curtis of Rossland, has deserted the opposition for the stand  taken by his former leader. He walked out of opposition caucus  last night.  On tlie other hand, Messrs. Helmcken and McPhillips of Victoria, and Garden of Vancouver have openly come out in opposition to the government's policy, which they formerly supported,  and tomorrow Mr. Helmcken will movo a want of confidence  motion, favoring the construction of the Coast-to-Kootenay  railway by an independent company. This will show how the  house stands on the question. With the support of three  .members of the opposition it is expected that-the government  can carry its bill.  **.*****************.*.****** vt 4444444444444444444444443*  <n  9*  9*  *  9*  *  9*  1��  <!��  9*  f  9*  9>  *  9*  *  m  9*  *  9*  f  9>  f  m  f  *  QUARANTINED FOOTBALLERS  Arrive From Cranbrook.  Two of tlie five Nelson footballers  who have been quarantined at  Cranbrook for the past sixteen  days, returned yesterday. Those  left behind are now enjoying  liberty, aud taking in the sights  and sceues of East Kootenay from  a new aspect. For the past couple  "of weeks all they saw of Cranbrook  was from tho balcony of the Cos-  " mopolitau hotel, and although from  this vantage point the view was  good, it' was not comprehensive  enough for."the Nelson men who  played the draw. T. A. Eden and  1<V II. Forbes were tho returning  members of the team yesterday.  They look well considering their incarceration, and speak highly of  the attention paid to all the  suspects by mine host Small, of the  Cosmopolitan.  "We have had five meals a day,"  said one of the arrivals of yesterday. "Breakfast at about 11 o'clock,  lunch at 2, dinner at 5, supper at 9  and at about 1 or 2 in the morning  our appetites were again, appeased.  We all gained several pounds in  weight during the term of quarantine, but none of us volunteered for  further detention service. We made  things as lively as was possible under the circumstances, and had few  dull moments. Sport? Yes, we had  ���lots-;of "it; We"_liatl~quoits7"carilsr  billiards, fireworks, lassoing and a  variety of improvised games. From  the hotel balcony we made a strenuous effort to collect a $1 fine from  every passer-by and occasionally  l.issoed a reluctant contributor.  Some of us are now really  handy ab throwing the rope���fellows who have never been on a cattle range iu our lives. There wero  . 35 of.us , all told, in the hotel, and  a jollier lot 1 would not ask to meet.  All were vaccinated, fumigated,  subjected to chemical baths, and  baths that were pot chemical, but  there was no discipline. It was a  free-and-easy from the day the  doors were closed on us uutil yesterday when the portals were again  opened. The Cranbrook people  treated us decently and I hope the  Nelson people will reciprocate when  the Cranbrook boys come oyer here  on the'4th of next month to kick  bnll with us. We left behind us  Tiny Thompson, Allan Sergeaunt  and Harry Houston. They will  likely be here tomorrow. Ye3, we  are all well," said the returning  quarantined footballer.  Mining Records.  The following are the mining  transactions recorded yesterday:  J ilin Reilly transfers to George  D ivis his interest in the Gem, on  Beaver creek ; certificates of Avork  to John Callaghan on the Humming  Bird, at Erie, and to Matthew Nelson on the Champion and Viking  Fraction. ' There Avere; two new  locations���the Schley, one mile from  Erie, by Jack Sutherland, and the  Avondale by Peter Batiste. Certificates of improvement . were  granted to A. H. Kelly, E. C. Arthur,  and J.P. Rogers on the Julius Cassar,  five miles south of Nelson.  EARLY GLOSINC IN NELSON  During the Summer Months'  A movement is on foot to have  the business houses of Nelson close  their doors on one day in the week  during the summer months at 12  o'clock noon. There appears to be  a very general feeling in favor of  such a scheme, and about the only  point left undecided up to a few  days ago was as to the particular  day of the week which would be  most convenient for early closing.  This has been practically settled,  aud. Thursday named. The store  assistants of Nelson are a hardworking body of men and, women,  proverbial for their courtesy and  business tact. Their hours are long  ���from 7 or 8 o'clock in the morning  until 0, 7 or 8 o'clock in the evening.  The strain is too severe to be endured the year round; and if the  tension cau be relieved without any  inconvenience to the public, it is  only fair that for the summer  months at least, a half holiday  should be declared. When it is  generally known that no business  will be transacted on the Thursday  afternoon, people will readily accommodate themselves to the arrangement, and this the more-willingly  when by so doing they have the  consciousness that they are contributing to the happiness of  others.  An"agreementrbinding_the_mer-  chants to close' their respective  places of business at 12 o'clock noon  on Thursday, during the months of  May, June, July and August is now  being very liberally signed. It  provides that if- all those engaged  in auy one particular branch of  business do not sign, the agreement  shall not be binding upon the others  in the same line, and should any  one of the signators fail to comply  with the conditions set forth, the  others in that particular business  may consider themselves released.  This is a fair and square proposition and as. such it is being  freely endorsed. Those-'-,' who  have signed up to date are:  Kerr & Co., Fred Irvine & Co., Hudson's Bay Co., J. A. Irving & Co.,  George Bell & Co., McPherson &  McCamraon, William Hunter & Co.,  Nelson Hardware Co., The Wallace  Miller Co. Limited, Emory &  Walley, J. A. Gilker, Lillie Bros., A.  Ferland, Morrison- & Caldwell.  The agreement is in the hands of  K. C. Beaton, and can be 9igned by  any individual or firm willing to  comply with the terms.  The Tremont Stuffed Managerie.  The windows of the Tremont  House were yesterday an unusual  attraction. Al Tregillus spent some  weeks in the hills last fall with a  rifle, and succeeded in potting some  rare specimens of the feathered  tribe as well as a good-sized  mountain goat and a lynx. All of  these he has had stuffed, and now  they are on view. The goat aud  lynx are beauties of their species.  Two well-developed horned owls  and one pigmey are nicely mounted.  Then there is a crested merganser,  a raven, a wood-duck, a loon, a red  thorold and a fish hawk���aU very  fine specimens of their sort. With  such an exhibition of the prowess  of a local sport, the windows of the  Tremont are rendered very  attractive; '   Mystery to Be Dispelled.  Victoria, April 24.���Dr. Fagan,  provincial health officer, leaves this  week for Langley, to further investigate the case of the -young man  Holloway, who was found dead last  year in his cabin, with a gun shot  wound in his body. The coroner's  jury decided that it was a case of  suicide, but _ the young man's  relatives think differently, and the  authorities have consented to  further investigate the case.  HIGH WATER AT CINCINNATI  FREEZINC STORY VERIFIED  BEACHED TO 56-FOOT STAOE YESTERDAY MORNING.  Thousands of Families Rendered Homeless and Destitute by the  .Great Flood.  DEADLY NEW YEAR'S BLIZZARD  AT, CAPE NOME.  'Gold   Digger"   Confirms the   Stories  Which Found Their Way Out  Some Time Ago.  Seattle, April 24.���Partial confirmation of the rumors of death in  Alaska by freezing has been received.  The Nome Gold Digger, of January  20 th, says : "Dr. Pel ton, one of the  best known and most esteemed  young pioneers of Alaska, was  frozen to death on the trail on the  night of January 1st, near Solomon.  He came from Oakland, California,  and was 33 years of age.  '���Dan Anderson left Dexter for  Nome about four weeks ago,  and  has not yet been heard of.    It is  'feared that��he perished in the New  Year's blizzard.  "W. F. Baum perished while  carrying assistance,to a sick miner.  He was a native of Mobile, Alabama, and had seen service iu the  Cuban war.  "This .afternoon   United   States  "marshal McLean brought into-town  the remains of a man from Solomon.  Later the body  was identified as  that of Alexander Snow.  "A story was told at the chamber of commerce meeting on Mon-  dey night of sixteen men and a woman being huddled together, iu a  mained and mutilated condition  from frost bite, in a cabin on Pilgrim river, unable to lie down because of the crush, and with starvation facing them. Generous individuals and companies donated  money and food. An appeal to the  military was resolved upon, and  within two hours au emergency  supply was flying over the trail by  moonlight, drawn by swift dogs.  The next day a number of the victims arrived in town and told their  story. Some of them were badly  frostbitten-and���had-endured��� severe hardships.  "Dr. Tam was frozen to death on  Saturday, January 19th, and two  unknown men were found dead near  Marys Igloo."  Petty Larcenies in Nelson.  For the past few weeks a gang of  petty thieves have been operating  in Nelson. They appear to devote  their attentions to small things,  and to depend upon the multiplicity  of articles gathered in to pay them  for risks inc&rred. They visit  saloons, arid steal the counter  towels, get into lavatories and  carry off mirrors, soap, and everything they can lay hands on, and  appropriate odd boots displayed out-  by shoe. stores in thg hope of pairing them in the next scene of operation. The petty nature of the  pilferings seems to be the protection  which the operators enjoy. No man  cares to prosecute for the loss of a  couple of towels, a small mirror, or  a cake or two of soap. .A few of  the offenders are Spotted.  The Nelson Quoit Club.  Yesterday's games at the grounds  of the Nelson Quoit Club were as  follows: Clements 31, Hardie 8;  Wallace 31, Hunter 11; McMorris  31, Irving 13; Beer 31, Watchorn  13; Morrison 31, Turner 23; Telford  31, Watson 10; Irwin 31, O'Shea 11.  Will Raise Some Quarantines.  Victoria, April 24.���The provincial health oflicers have decided to  raise the quarantine in Kootenay  towns, all fear of smallpox there  having passed. The quarantine  against the state of Washington  will be continued, as, Dr. Fagan  says the disease is still prevalent  there.  Cincinnati, April 24.���What is  believed to be the crest of the flood  sweeping down the Ohio- river  reached here today. The river rose  an inch per hour all night, and a  stage of 50 feet was reached shortly  before 0 a. m. This is six feet above  the danger line for the business  sections aud eleven feet below the  line where the .water enters the  tenements along the water front.  The city is surrounded by a backwater on the - east and west, and  also along the south side, but it is  estimated now that the stage of 58  feet   will be   reached   here.   -The  highest poiut will come today and  relief will soon follow. The conditions on the Kentucky side have  not changed. The relief that is in  sight here clears everything for the  480 miles up to Pittsburg, and the  rivermen say that the lower Ohio  valley will not suffer so much, as  the tributaries below here are not  so high as those in the upper valley.  Cincinnati, April 24.���Besides  the heavy loss .by flood in the  manufacturing and wholesale districts, many laborers are idle, and  about 1000 people, have been rendered homeless. The loss in the  timber and tie districts along the  Little Kanawha is estimated at a  quarter of a million.  At Charleston, West Virginia  over 106 people : were rendered  homeless, and the loss of timber in  Elk, Poca, Cauley and Coal river,  has been very great. "The Kanawha  and Michigan railroad has beenun-  able, to run between' this city and  Point Pleasant < since Saturday."  Three bridges were .washed away,  and the roadbed washed out at  many places. Two adjacent towns  to Huntingdon are submerged. The  water in many instances being at  the second story. Over a "thousand  people are homeless in the district,  and many are destitute. Iu Harvey.  not half a dozen inhabited houses  are left. All the towns in this  valley that are lighted by natural  gas are in darkness and without  fuel, as the natural gas main burst  near Gallup, Kentucky. The damage in this section is estimated at  over $600,000.  At Mariotta, Ohio about ��� 150  families are homeless. At Point  Pleasant, West Virginia over 200  families  have   been    driven    from  -their���homes The -court- house-is-  full of colored people being fed by  the city. The large brick and tile  works have been greatly damaged.  At Ripley, Ohio, boats are used  on Second and Third street's. The  city east of main street is covered  with water, but only about 15  families moved to the second stories  and the condition is improving.  At Marysville, Kentucky about  thirty families have moved to the  second stories, and some have  vacated. At Aberdeen the condition is much worse.  A Bill That Is Long Overdue.  London, April 24.���In tlie house  of commons today the deceased  wife's sister bill passed its second  reading by 202 to 155 votes. In  1S95 the bill passed its third reading in the house of lords by 142 to  104 votes, and was afterwards ���  blocked in the house of commons.  dock gates.

The only delegates  present at the session were representatives from several garrisoned  towns on the east coast and they  feared to give information to the  Americans. The commissioners  assured them that the increased  American forces would cope with  the rebels and that a vigorous campaign would be instituted in Samar.  -The only���American-troops-now���in-  Samar are seven companies of the  First infantry. Previous to the  arrival of the commission yesterday a party of insurgents fired  down from the hills back of Cat  Balogan. Some bamboo guns were  captured today. The commissioners  sailed tonight for the southern  Luzon provinces.  Roberts Held for Manslaughter.

Nkw York, April 24. ��� Once  again peace rumors are in tlio air,  says the Tribune's London correspondent. Mrs. Botha has been in  correspondence with lord Kitchener  and as a result it is believed that  the British commander-in-chief has  agreed to receive three Boer generals���Botha, Delary and Viljoen���  within the next few days. It is  perhaps not without significance  that the news should reach London  from Amsterdam, that Mr. Kruger  is afraid Mrs. Botha's efforts will  cause her husband to surrender.

E. Croasdaile, one of the delegates to Ottawa from Nelson on the  refinery bonus proposition, returned  yesterday. He was met at the  boat by a Tribune reporter, and in  reply to questions said: "I believe  we made a very favorable impression, and that the importance of the  subject was forcibly impressed upon  the government. All that could  be said from our standpoint was  said, and I believe a very favorable  impression was "created. We got  no definite promise, but the ministers were .-unquestionably interested, and were anxious for information.  " Was there not a statement of  the case presented, as drafted on  the part of the mine owners' association and boards of trades of  the Kootenays?" asked The  Tribune man.  "Yes, I believe there was," replied the returning delegate.  " There was a . number of good  speeches -made in support of our  case, but we could elicit no definite  promise. However, I believe a very'  favorable impression has been  made." Attention was also called  to the* inequality'"of the -duties  levied upon lead products coming  into Canada, and it was pointed out  that the schedule of lead duties  stands as it was framed many  years ago when there was no production of lead in the Dominion,  and the government was asked to  revise this tariff and put it upon an  equitable basis by an increase of  the duty upon pig lead from 15 to  20 per cent aud upon dry white  lead from 5 to 25 per cent.  Off to New Westminster.  William Fell, whose name has  been prominently before tiie public  for months past iii connection with  police annals, was yesterday examined by Dr. LaBau and pronounced insane. An order was con-  sequently-issued-forhis removal-to-  the asylum at New Westminster,  and police constable Heavener left  yesterday evening with Fell in  charge. The unfortunate man has  been in the lock-up for the past few  days, developing extraordinary hallucinations.  The New Goverment Buildings.  The work of excavation on the  new government buildings continues, and although there are only  a couple of teams employed, good  progress is being made. So deep  was tlie cut yesterday that it was  deemed advisable for the safety of  the public to erect a paling on tho  Ward street side of tlie plot. As  depth is attained stiffer material is  encountered, and it is thought it  may be necessary to use powder before long to loosen up the  ground.  Should Get the Limit.  Montreal, April 24.��� Arthur  Hamel tliis morning in the police  court confessed tho the theft of  $275 from his father. The father  is an old man, a laborer, and has  been years saving up the money.  The son is a worthless scamp, who  was deserted by his wife last winter and quartered himself on his  father, rewarding him by stealing  the money from a trunk. The  magistrate said young Hamel was  a disgrace to his country, and remanded him for sentence until tomorrow.  Strikers Lose This Time.  Cleveland, April 24.���The tug  firemen and linemen, employed by  tlie Great Lakes Towing Company,  who went on strike several days  ago for an advance of $5 per month  in wages, returned to work today  at the old rate,  PAVING HIS WAY TO WED.  Murderer Briere's Motivo.  Ciiartres, France, April 24.���  The bodies of the five murdered  children of the farmer named  -Briere, who were killed on April  21st, were interred this afternoon  in a common grave. The bi.-liop of  Chartres, the municipal officials,  and a number of strangers followed  the bier. Briere, who claimed that -  the murders were coram it ted by -  two tramps, but who is suspected .  of; having killed the children*  himself in a fit of drunken  madness, has not yet confessed,  but the authorities are satisfied lie  is the murderer. One of the most-  conclusive evidences of his guilt  was discovered by accident/ He I"  planned and carried out the crimes-,  iu the most cold blooded manner, -;  and upset the furniture to convey -  the idea thatthe alleged murderers ".  had ransacked the house for. rob-'-  bery, but in overturning a drawer  he broke a. bottle of ink ar.d the  doctors in dressing,, his _ wounds  found his fingers stained with ink. "~  Tlie motive for the murder appears "a  to be that,Briere wanted to marry '���_  a widow who had refused him on --  .acpount of his large, family." The  crime has caused a tremendous sensation throughout France.  TALK CANAL MATTERS OVER  Pauncefote and Hay Confer.  Washington,    April    21.���LoiJ  Pauncefote, the British ambassador,  was in  conference with  secretary  Hay at the state department today  for   au   hour.      In   view   of    tha  approaching absence from Washing-,  ton of secretary Hay the  ambassador  was  desirous  of disposing  off  pending  matters  of business,  but/  the important subject of discussion  was the  canal  project.    Secretary  Hay has  been  at  work ever since  -congress-adjournedl-takiug���souud^���  ings with a  view  to  learning  justs  what   could   be   expected   of   tho  senate   in  case  he  should   submit  another treaty to that  body.    But  for reasons  heretofore    explained,  up       to     this     time      he       has  not    been     able     to     secure     a  satisfactory view of the legislative  field.     This is iu large measure due  to the  reluctance  of some  of  the  leading senators to commit  themselves frankly in advance to certain  ideas respecting the canal.     Therefore lord Pauncefote, as he goes to  London before Mr. Hay returns, can  present to the English officials only  a partially developed picture of the  situation  here, though  he may be  able through his long experience in  Washington   to  support, the ideas  he has gathered from secretary Hay  with  some views of  his  own  that  may afford the British government  the   information   it  requires  as a  precedent to  initiating fresh negotiations for a new treaty.

From the latter city he will  probably return home via Montreal,  where he will further confer with  contractor Reid respecting railway  matters. The colonial legislature  will convene May 23rd. This date  admits of premier Bond reaching  here and. preparing the program of  measures before the house opens.  The Dunsmuir government's rail-  policy, which was announced in the  legislature   on   Tuesday,   may   be  taken as notice  that hereafter all  railways shall be built upon terms  dictated   by   the government, instead of  upon  such  terms  as  are  most acceptable to the persons who  propose to 'build them.   The government's   present    railway    programme contemplates the building  ' of some 945 miles of railway, which  when built will to all intents and  purposes   be    government    roads,  since   the   government shall have  control of all rates, and will recoup  itself for assistance- granted by a  charge of four per cent upon the  gross earnings of the roads assisted.  It was not to be expected, in view  of   conflicting interests,  that any  policy the government might bring  down would be acceptable  to all;  but it must be conceded that, in  the present instance, the government by its announced policy has  succeeded   in   pleasing- the    very  great majority of the people. 'Although the present railway   programme covers what may be termed  the four  corners  of the  province,  the only objection taken  to it is  with respect to the assistance to be  granted to the road from Midway  to     the   Coast,    which   embraces  all told about one-third of the total  mileage to be provided for.   Nor  can it be  said that  this  objection  was unexpected.   The men who are  raising it, in the interest of James  J.   Hill's   Victoria,   Vancouver    &  Eastern- scheme,  have   from    the  first insisted that special treatment  should be meted out to  Mr. Hill,  and that  under no circumstances  * should he and those who are  associated with him  be placed in  , competition for their charter and  subsidy with any other railway  company.    Few of them, however,  ' have the temerity to frankly state  their position in the controversy,  and instead of openly challenging  the government's right to secure  by competition the best bargain it can for the construction      of     the      roads      desired,  ��� they confine  themselves  chiefly to  the work of creating the impression  tliat the government policy is designed for the purpose of  preventing railway construction instead of  encouraging it.   To this end  they  direct  particular attention  to the  condition   which  provides  for the  payment to the government of four  per cent, upon the gross earnings of  the road assisted.   This, they say,  is an effectual barrier  to any  company availing itself of the  government subsidy, since it would be impossible to secure the money necessary   for   construction   witli   such  four per cent as a first charge upon  the road's earnings.    To refute this  it is only necessary to refer to the  agreements which the government  of  the  province already has with  the Canadian Pacific Railway Company for the equipment and operation of the Shuswap & Okanagan  railway and  the Nakusp & Sloean  railway.    With  respect to both of  these roads  it may be stated that  the government of the province de  frayed the entire cost of construction, but conceding this the fact  stands   out   that   the  roads were  equipped  and are  being operated  under an agreement  whicli   gives  the province, not. four per cent of  the gross earnings, but forty per cent  of thegross earnings.   Having therefore such agreements, which have  beeu in force for several years, does it  not seem reasonable to expect that  in cases in which the government  of    the   province    provides    one-  fourth or one-fifth of, the cost  of  construction, that it will be able to  secure   the   building   of   railways  under a condition which insures for  it the return of four per cent upon  their  gross   earnings?      The   opponents of the government's  railway policy will scarcely assert that  the Canadian Pacific Railway Company either takes or is taking  any  the worst of any agreement which  it may make with the government  for   the   equipment     and    operation    of    state - aided     branches.  The    contention     of    Mr.     Hill's  advocates    proves   nothing,    save  that    their     principal    is    either  unable,     or     unwilling,    to      offer the province as advantageous  terms in return for the use of government money in his   railway enterprises as other railway concerns  offer.    This may be rather unfortunate for Mr. Hill, but it can hardly  be regarded as an effective argument to plead before a legislature  which appears bent upon having  railway    competition    above     all  things.  The Dunsmuir government has  lost nothing by the new line of  cleavage which its railway policy  has produced in the legislature. In  _drawing_Martin,-Brown,���Mclnnes  and Stables from the opposition, in  exchange for McPhillips, Helmcken  and Garden, the government may  fairly claim to have swapped wind  for brains.        '  The feet of Smith Curtis, in.  walking out of the opposition caucus Tuesday evening, did not present so striking a feature as the  feet of the caucus itself as it proceeded to walk over the government side of the house.

A Harvard Professor  Stands Charged  With the   Murder  of  His  Brother-in-L&w.  Cambridge, Massachusetts, April  21.���The government lost its first  critical point, in the admission of  evidence against professor Eastman, of Harvard college, who is on  trial in the superior court charged  with the murder of his brother-in-  law, Richard Grogan, junior, when  judge Gaskill this afternoon stated  that certain evidence, in the form  of repetition of statements alleged  to have, been mado by Grogan as he  was dying, was not admissible iu a  certain form which tended to convey tlie opinion and not the fact  as to whether he (Grogan) had been  killed or murdered.  The point raised by Mr. Elder for  the prisoner was one of intense interest, as ib was being argued by  Mr. Elder on the one side and attorney-general Knowlton on the  other. The point raised apparently was unexpected by tha  attorney-general. It came out  in this fashion: Lottie Brough-  ton, a ' witness, was asked to  repeat what she had heard Grogan"  say, her testimony having already  gone beyond the point where it had  been shown that Grogan was  wounded. Mr. Elder interposing,  said he anticipated the answer to be,  "Charles, you've murdered me,"-and  to it he objected as incompetent  evidence on the plain ground on  whieh Grogau's opinion was not  a speciGc declaration of the dying  man. On the same ground he objected to evidence also presented  which in effect "was an opinion and  not a bare statement of fact.  Attorney-general Knowlton immediately took the opposite ground  and the exposition of the law by  the two attorneys was so keen that  the issue was "taken by judges Gas-  kill and Aikin into a conference  which lasted an hour. The decision  was given against the government  in almost every particular ; the exposition being, that the identical  ^ words objected to were allowed to  stand in the direct testimony of  Mr. Titus, a druggist, who saw the  struggle between Grogan aud Eastman and heard the former speak  immediately after having been shot.  The entire day was full of sensational evidence.  FORGET THAT WAR 18 GRUEL  SOUTH AFRICANS COMPLAIN  OF  HARSH TREATMENT.

A new law firm will hang out its  shingle in Nelson on May 1st. It  will be composed of E. C. Wragge  of this city and A. Whealler of  Kaslo.

An interesting  report will be submitted by the  secretary reviewing the brief but  successful career of the organization.  The two Morris tubes for rifles  arrived in Nelson yesterday for use  by tlie Rocky Mountain Rangers.  The tubes are inserted in the barrel  of the rifle, reducing the bore to 22,  thus enabling indoor practice when  under ,ordinary circumstances the  standard cartridge would have to  be used. ;; '' ' '  **  The business of the Kootenay Cigar Manufacturing Company has  been purchased by S.

Report Credited in Washington.  Washington, April 21.���The report from Rome that Mgr. Diomede  Falconio, now apostolic delegate  to Canada, has been selected to succeed cardinal  Martiuelli as delegate to the United  States, is believed here. For some  days his name has been connected  by rumor with the succession to  that office.  London, April 21.���J. K.  Merri-  man. former treasurer of Capo Colony and now a representative of  the Afrikander Bund, speaking at a  meeting of the league of Liberals  today against aggression and militarism, said military law, the abnegation of all law,  had  been  established in Cape Colony.    The newspapers had not heard of the treach -  evy and  espionage going  on.    Respectable   people  were .committed  on the evidence of natives alone.  They were brought up and  fined  for   harmless observances, alleged  seditions, and the town guards harried thorn.     These things created  greater irritation and indignation  than actual violence.     The   press  was deliberately stopped, and four  editors had been sent to jail.   The  fruits of this policy would  be  bitter, as the memory of these insults  burned the hearts of   the people.  Mr. Merriman detailed  instances of  the punishment of the Dutch under  military law, usually on the testimony of   natives   and  employees.  He   mentioned   an   instance  of   a  cheeky girl being fined for saying  things against the town guards.   '-  Martial law and the censorship  throughout Cape Colony prevented  the people of England from  knowing the hardships of the Dutch.  As  an Englishman, Mr. Merriman said  he viewed  the policy   pursued  in  Cape Colony with the blackest dismay.    If. persisted in, South Africa  was lost to the British empire. The  only thing that could save it,  was  recognition that the people wanted  self govesnment, and were determined to have it.  Mr. J. W..Saner, the former commissioner of public works of Cape  Colony, . said the camps in  which the Boer women and children were kept were guarded by  sentries with loaded rifles and fixed  bayonets. The majority of the  women had been placed in them  against their will. Their household had been. burned and their  possessions had been taken. He had  tried to get the..military authorities through the government of  Cape Colony, to permit two or  three hundred women and children  camped at Port Elizabeth, to be  liberated, as food and shelter had  been promised them by the town,  but the military authorities refused the request.  '_ Resolutions opposing annexation  and crown government were  adopted.    Greatest Leper Colony Known.

The  strong arm of the emperor, said  rector La Valette, secured Germany's frontiers, and art, science,-  trade and commerce flourished  under the wise protection of their  genial emperor. Just as the emperor, as a student, had won the  hearts of all, so would the crown  prince soon learn how truly and  warmly all hearts beat in unison  with his.  The crown prince then entered  liis name on the register and the  rector grasped his hand and greeted him as the youngest member of  the university,* at the same time  expressing the wish that he, like  his father, would unite serious  study with the buoyant spirits of  youth.
