 Mineral Productiorj of British Columbia in 1900  $16,407,645  ���:,.<���'��� ��� '{*���*;- _,  Mineral Production of Kootenay it) 1800  $10,562,032  NINTH YEAR.  NELSON, B.C., FRIDAY MORNING,  APRIL 26,  1901  PRICE FIVE CENTS  RUSSIA WILL LEND MONEY  TO PAY OFF CHINESE INDEMNITY  CLAIMS.  Will.Hold Manchuria as a Pledge for  the Same With the Consent  of France.  Paris, April 25.���The Courier du  Soir, whicli is often well informed  on ministerial intentions, says  tonight that the settlement of the  Chinese situation is a question of  finance. The newspaper says that  Russia, repeating that operation  which has had the greatest success,  will advance China the sum required  ��� to pay the indemnities, and that  French savings will provide the  Russian government with the  requisite funds. The European  troop?, except tlie legation gangs'ns, will then leave Pekin, and a  fresh period will begin during  which Chinese patience will strive  to tire out the British and German  governments iu their claims . regarding theopeuing of the ports and  tlie customs. . Russia, however, will  retain Manchuria as a pledge for  the loan. This appears to be the  general scheme of the object of the  French foreign minister M. Del-  casHe's discussion in St. Petersburg  with count Lansdorf and M. Witte,  respectively Russian ministers of  foreign a (fairs and finance.  Pekin, April 25.���Thev expedition  from Pao Ting Fu, has been entirely called off, and the French  troops have been ordered to return  to the original station. The only  casualties stiffeied by the expedition were two German soldiers  killed. With the exception of the  formal calling off of the troops, the  only comment made by the court  is a brief notice in the official Gazette to tho effect that had strong  enough manifestations beeu made  through the pleuipoten caries, the  troops would have been ordered to  withdraw before. This if considered a censure, would be manifestly  unjust because Li Hung Chang aud  prince Ching had been urging the  withdrawal for a month. However, the notice is so brief that  neither plenipotentiaries regard it  as a reflection on his actions, thinking.that the court means that the  powers did not make strong enough  representations. As a matter of  fact, if the reflections upon the  plenipotentiaries were intended,  Li Hung Chang and prince Ching  would be humilated beforo  the foreigners' aud could no  longer be considered representatives. The Germans killed in connection with the expedition were  members of a scouting party who  went for beyond" the border.  local lodge and Nelson encampment  attending the Congregational church  in a body. "The Principles of Odd-  fellowship ��� friendship, love and  peace," will bo the theme of Rev.  Bro. Monro's sermon. There will  be a large turnout of the order.  The City Assessment Boll.  City assessor Strachan yesterday  completed his assessment of the  "West "Ward, and will'at once start  on a similar mission' through the  East Ward. His figures will not  show as great an increase as was  apparent last year, but some very  good buildings have, been run up  during the past twelve months, including -the Kirkpatrick-Wilson-  Clement block on Baker street.  A SPLIT IN DUNSMUIR'S CABINET  Ministers Turner, Prentice, and Wells are Reported to Be in Favor  of Compromising: With the Hill Bolters.  Feeling* Is Now Very Bitter Between Members of Helmcken Clique  and Straight Government Men.  -Trouble^on^the^Steamer^Easlor  There was trouble on the steamer  Kaslo the other day. One of the  deck hands jocosely turned the  hose on the Chinaman, who resented  the insult vigorously. The case  was investigated, and the guilt of  the offender clearly established.  He was promptly dismissed, and in  sympathy with him, all the deckhands quit work. The purser and  mate of the steamer were obliged  . to do deck work to and from Lardo,  and soon tired of the job. New  hands were employed on reaching  port. "   Released From Quarantine.  E. V. Thompson, Allan Sergeant  and Harry Houston, the last of the.  quarantined footballers at Cranbrook, returned to town yesterday  and do not look as if the confinement iu any way int erf erred with  their health or spirits. They confirm the story of Forbes and Eden  who arrived in Nelson the previous  day, that the visiting footballers  were very well treated by the people of Cranbrook.' ,  The -Nelson Quoit Club.  Yesterday's games at the grounds  of the Nelson Quoit Club were as  follows: J.F.'Weir 31, Burnett 25;  Smyth 81, R. Weir 10; Telford .31,  Morrison 14; Elliott 31, Bradley  25; Rev. W.

The 82nd anniversary of the Independent Order of Odd Fellows  will be celebrated in Nelson on  Sunday next, the members of the  CUBANS  AT   WASHINGTON  Interview With McKinley.  Washington, April 25.���The Cuban delegates began their round of  official visits and conferences today,  going to the war department at 11  o'clock for the first formal meeting  with secretary Root, and then to  the White House for a meeting  with the president. Secretary Root  stated that the discussion of Cuban  affairs with the commission would  be considered private, and no public statement would be made.  When the commission was'ushered  into the blue parlor, where the  president, secretary Root, general  Wood and assistant secretary  Singer were awaiting them, the introductions were made by general  Wood.. The greetings were cordial  and of a formal character.  Senor Diego Tamayo, chairman of  the committee, who is a member of  general Woods' cabinet, on behalf  of the commission made a brief  address to the president and the  latter responded. Several pleasant  things were said on both sides, but  there was no discussion in detaif of  the object of the commission's visit.  The exchange of assurances and  good feeling in general describes  the nature "of the interview. The  commission were with the president  scarcely half an hour.  The Cuban delegation from the  convention framing a constitution  fOr_tl*lft   .llftW   Jaliintlr.��opn\��lio���moli-  president McKinley twice today,  when there were introductions and  a formal exchange of expressions of  friendship^ between the United  States and Cuba, and .'again when  the members of the delegation were  the guests of honor at a state dinner at the. White House. The real  business which brought the delegation here was transacted with secretary Root at the war department.  The president, in the forenoon interview at the White House, informed  the delegates that he would confer  with the secretary, who. would act  as his representative in conferences  over the Cuban situation: The  delegation and secretary Root were  closeted for some hours in the afternoon in a discussion of the relations^  iflf'the^islaiid't^thie^TJnite'd^Stateir  Secrecy was observed as to the conference, the statement being made  that after results were reached,  some news as to .the conclusion  might..be'made public. ���*���'*:.  *'.'*.;['���'���; '�� Floods in Ohio.  Cincinnati, April 25.���The flood  situation in this part of the Ohio  valley is much worse today. It  was expected that it would reach  its* limit today here-and up the  valley,.and also that it would not  exceed 58 feet ��� at Cincinnati, or  eight feet above the danger limit.  It passed the stage of 58 feet here  at midnight, and the condition for  almost 200 miles up the river are  equally disappointing. t The rise  here yesterday afternoon was at  the average rate of half an inch per  hour, but during the night the rate  increased, owing to tlie rising of the  tributaries below the Kanawha,  especially the Big ^Saindy, which  had previously been^falling. While  the limit of the present flood may be  reached today, it is feared that the  new conditions may keep the river **  about stationary until there may  be a second flood. The worst conditions are reported at Huntingdon,  Calettsburg, -ronton* and Portsmouth, and the smaller points in  that district have reached the  point of great distress.  Mining Records.  The following are the mining  transactions recorded yesterday:  Certificates of work on the Kaslo  mineral claim to John Olson; new  record by Thomas Livingstone and  Richard James on the Robinson  Crusoe, situate oue mile north of  Hall and half a mile west of the  railway.  Victoria, April 25.���[Special to  The Tribune.]���The expected did  not happen today, Helmcken did  not call up his want of confidence  resolutions, and he is not leader of  the government tonight.  It is claimed he and McPhillips  and Tatlow and Garden and Murphy have. been secretly scheming  for some time to encompass the  downfall of the government, and  the announcement of the government's railway policy was to be the  opportune time.  When that policy was announced  the opposition considered it in caucus, and a row was the result.  Smith Curtis of Rossland and  E. C. Smith of East Kootenay opposed the policy, and the others are  said to have favored it.  This became known, and the  Helmcken crowd thought it best to  lie low for a time in order to remain in full fellowship with the  government. This is very distasteful to the stalwarts, who do not believe that it is good policy to keep  within the party men who are  ready to knife it at the first opportunity.  It is a notorious fact, now that  the question is no longer an issue,  that. nearly every Liberal in the  house was opposed to placing any  restrictions whatever in the bill  chartering the Crow's* Nest' South-1  em railway, and it is also' a >note-_  -wuruiyraeir ciiav~rew^XJioerais are  opposing the Victoria, Vancouver &  Eastern crowd in their schemes to  down the Dunsmuir government.  The Helmcken resolutions are the  lever that is to be used to bring  this about.    They read as follows :  Whereas, it was   announced  in  the speech from the throne that it  would be the policy of the government to subsidize a line of railway  from the' Coast to the Kootenay  country, should the work not be  undertaken by the government as a  public work:V  And, whereas, the' interests of  the province imperatively demand  that such steps should be taken as  will ensure that', railway construction should be Commenced during  the present year and pushed to a  speedy completion ;  And whereas there has. been a  strong and almost universal expres-'  sion of public opinion in favor of  the construction of the said railway  by a' company which will operate  independently' of the Canadian  Pacific railway "system;  Therefore be it resolved, .that in-  the opinion of this house, the exigencies of the' situation demand  that at the earliest possible moment  such steps should be taken by the  government as would enable a company of proved financial ability,  and having . independent eastern  connections, to build such railway  as an independent competitive line  with the.C P. R; and its branches ;  And, further, that the company  accepting such-bonus should not be  promoted;' by ttj'e, C. P. R., nor by,  any person- tor persons! acting  directly or indirectly in the interests of the said.C:,wP.. R".- company;  and further, that such company  should hot at any.time be amalga-'  -mated' with* ��� the ,C. P. R. or with  any company operated by the said  company;jO��asa-j���nrk--nf tha n P_^  \K; system; ana lurtheiy that -the  undertaking of such subsidized  company should .not at any time  hereafter be leased, sold, operated  or controlled by the C. P. R. company or any of its branch lines; or  by any company affiliated, with the  C. P. R.' company, or operated, con  trolled or managed as a part of the  C. P. R. system; and  Further, be it resolved, that any  proposed agreement with such company should, - before execution; t-be  , approved by the legislature.  The crowd whoareboostingtheV.  V. & E..see that there is nothing in  it for them if the company is required to payfour per cent of its  gross earnings, iu return for the  cash", subsidy from the province.  They also want the subsidy to be  paid over as 20 mileseetions of the  road are completed. With them it  is strike out every safeguard in the  bill in order to insure their company a free hand.  The members who favor this  policy are: Helmcken; McPhillips,  Murphy. Curtis, Tatlow, Garden,  Smith of East Kootenay, and Hay-  ward. ~  The members who did not favor  any material change in the bill are:  Dunsmuir, Eberts, McBride; A. W.  Smith, Ellison, Clifford, Mounce,  Dickie, Hunterj Green, Fulton,  Houston and-Taylor.  The following named are also reported as being.in favor of the bill:  Martin, Brown, Gilmour, Staples  and Mclnnes.  The, following are inclined to  make concessions to-the Helmeken-  crowd: Turner, Rogers, Prentice,  Hall and Wells. -  Pooley is sick, Booth is speaker,  aud the following who comprise the,  balance of the house do not appear  to be willing to express their views:  Kidd, Munroe, Oliver,  Hawthorne-  What chartermongers. could' not  accomplish alone will be- accomplished jblirough party intrigue, and  a bill that is legislation in the right  direction will be emasculated, in  order to hold in line a half dozen  men who ambitious to be cabinet  ministers.  CALLAHAN THE DARK MAN  Identified hy Cudahy.  Omaha, Nebraska, Aprir 25.���In  the trial of James Callahan, on the  charge of connection with the kidnaping of Edward Cudahy, junior,  on December 18th, the victim took  the stand and absolutely identified  "Callahan as thTT^arkTnaS'iirthe"  case. Callahan betrayed ho emotion when the boy declared he was  one of the abductors, but a cynical  smile played faintly over his features.  Attorney Haller cross-examined  Cudahy for the defence. Witness  admitted that he had gone over the  case with general Cowan with reference to his testimony. The only  direct view he had of .the dark  man's , face, was when he had  approached him. He admitted that  at that time he was pretty badly  scared/ In. answer to a direct question, the boy declared he was as  certain of the identity of Callahan  as he was of the identity of his  father or mother.  John Rabbe, a carpenter living  about a block from Callahan's sister,  Mrs. Kelly, testified that he knew  Pat Crowe, and that Crowe called  at Mrs. Kelly's where Callahan was  living, about twenty.tim.es between  October 23rd and the^time of the  kidnaping. The last Visit, he said,  was on December lith, four days  the kidnaping.  Lardo Railway Construction.  H. W. Young and J. J. Sullivan,  C. P. R. engineers, with a number of  assistants, arrived in Nelson yesterday morning from Trail, and in the  evening left for Lardo, to engage in  active work on the road from that  point to Trout lake. The party  was composed of the officials above  named, and J. W. McCreaney, W.  K. Gayer, W. Fetherstonheaugh, D.  Tee, Hi B. Dibble, J. Hargett, V.  Tway, R. Lockhart, A. Paget aud  R. Paget.

DIG   PLOW   COMBINATION  Capitalized for $50,000,000.  Nkw York, April 25.���The Journal of Commerce says of the proposed combination of plow manufacturers, reported from Chicago:  It is learned in this city that the  present plans, instead of being  merely,for_a-Consolidation^.of^-the_  plow industry, contemplate a consolidation which shall include every  branch of the farm machinery  trade with the exception of mowers  and reapers. The reported capital  of $50,000,000 is said to be a minimum figure. It is intended to secure all concerns rated at $1,000,000  or more. The financial details have  not yet been arranged, but.it is  understood that the capital of the  new company, if formed, -will be  divided equally between preferred  and common stocks. Good will is  to go in at about one-third the total  capitalization. It is stated tliat the  tangible valuable of the plants it  is intended to consolidate is upwards of $35,000,000. Colonel James  Manning, of the Syracuse Chilled  Plow Company, returned on Tuesday from attending a conference at  Chicago. According to information  secured from colonel Manning, the  Syracuse company is the only one  in the east interested in the new  combination, some of the others  being the Deer Plow Company of  Moline, Illinois, the ��� McCormick  Harvester Company, and companies  located in Illinois, Indiana, Michigan and Wisconsin.     ���    ��� -  Defeat of Slave Raiders.  London, April 25, ��� Brigadier-  general sir Frederick Lugard, high  commissioner and commander-in-  chief of Northern Nigeria, and  colonel G. V. Kemball, with a force  of West Africa frontier troops,  have completed a successful campaign against the powerful slave-  raiding emirs of Bida and Konta-  gora, in Northern Nigeria. The British defeated the emir of Kqntagora  after heavy fighting, 5000 natives  frequently chargiug the British  square.   The British captured the  capitals of both Bida and Kauta-  gora and released thousands of  slaves. The emirs have been the  terror of the country for years,  killing thousands of natives during  the past year. They are now entirely powerless, and this was  brought about without-the assistance of white troops.  Amalgamation Story Denied.  London, April 25.���The vice-president of the Grand Trunk railway  authorizes a denial of the report  telegraphed to New York from  Montreal, that negotiations "are on  foot for the consolidation of the  Canadian Pacific railway, the Grand  Trunk railway, and the Richelieu  & Ontario Navigation Company.  $300,000,000 IN INDEMNITY  Is What China" Can Pay.  San Francisco, April 25.���Edwin  H. Conger, United States' minister  to China, arrived from China this  afternoon on the steamer Hippon  'Ma'ru. Mr.. Conger's arrival was  awaited wifch considerable interest  on acconnfof his connection with  events in China. When asked of  events of China Mr. Conger turned  to the interviewer, and was particularly anxious to learn what had  been done by the powers iu the  matter of indemnity. s  He was asked for his opinion as  to the amount of indemnity China  could pay. "Three hundred million  dollars," he replied, accompanying  his answer by the statement that it  would he necessary for the government to practice economy. The  time of payment too, should extend over a long term of years.  Concerning -events in China, Mr.  Conger said there was nothing new  to be said in that direction, as  everything that happened had been  told together with many things  that never occurred. Tales of brur  tality had, he thought, been /exaggerated. N - ,  "Of course, there were cases ,of  outrage by individual soldier's .that  were ' not sanctioned by officers.

Hill's announcement, that he will  commence work at once upon his  projected railway which is to make  the Boundary district tributary to  Spokane, the Spokesman-Review  says: "It throws a revealing light  on Mr. Hill's large expenditure for  big depots and extensive grounds  ir. this city.

It  will mean that they will  probably  pay from the start, as  most other  roads in Canada would  do if they  were not saddled with the load of  earning   dividends   upon   - money  which   went   into the   pockets of  promoters instead of into construction or equipment.   S.MiTii_CmiTis_made_a_narae_for_  knowledge his connection with premier Dunsmuir and the C. P. R. It  has been no secret for some time  that he was ih the employ of the  leader of the government and was  responsible for much of Mr. Dnns-  muir's proposed legislation, but  many who were dazzled by his  "grand stand" plays in the past  have refused steadily to believe that  this self-proclaimed "friend of the  people" could simply be masquerading. That he has been will'now  be evident even to them. The defection of J. C. Brown to the government ranks might have been  foreseen at any time, and no one  will be surprised at finding him in  close proximity to where he believes  the' loaves and fishes are to be  found.  This Mine Swallowed Millions.   ��  Boston, April 25.���The" Post says:  "Neil McPheck, senior member of  the firm of McPheck & Company,  stock brokers, late yesterday afternoon brought an action for conspiracy against Randolph Sur-  bridge, a prominent Boston' attorney, and Isaac Irwin, a mining  operator of San Diego, California,  in the sum of $25,000. Behind this  action is a story, which, if true,  means that about $6,000,000 of the  uP^H^^ffffffiiVeni^^f^fiolTpan  out. The Post further says that  the mine is the 'Fortnna. Twelve  thousand stockholders are said to  have lost all they put in. C. B.  Boynton, a wealthy paper - man of  New* York,' is reported to have sunk  $50,000. The mining properties of  the company have been known by  four separate and distinct names:  the Fortuna, the La Republic, the  Fortuna Republica aud- the Consolidated Fortuna Republica. The  properties are located "in Ensenada,  Lower California.  KEEPER'S HORRIBLE DEATH  Victim of Vicious Elephant.  Peru, Indiana, Apiil 25.-���Henry  Huffman, a well known animal  trainer with the Wallace shows,  met a horrible death here today,  being killed by Big Charley, a  monster elephant, while the animal  was bathing in the Missinewa river.  Big Charley wound his trunk about  keeper 1 luff man and hurled him far  into the stream. The man was uninjured, and when he returned he  said: "Why, Charley, I did not  think tliat of you. Weren't you  ashamed of yourself?"  The next instant Huffman was  grabbed by the big elephant and  thrown to the bottom of the river  and held there by the forefeet of  the animal. Then with a great  roar the elephant ran away. Several show men shot at him with no  effect. He broke down fences and  roamed about in a-big field, keeping  everybody at a distance.  Apples loaded with strychnine  were thrown near him and he ate  one. An hour later he laid down  and was in terrible agony. A rifle  shot settled him. Big Charley  weighed over three tons and was  valued at $10,000. In his lifetime  he had killed four men.  '0*'<0>'  Steamers in an Ice Jam.  Port Huron, April 25.���Surrounded by a field of ice piled high,  scarcely able to be seen from the  shore, there is a fleet of fourteen  steamers on Lake Huron. They are  caught in the ice and are unable to  help themselves or render any assistance to the boats within hailing  distance. The Pentland aud the  Campbell have been held fast since  last Thursday. Among the boats  are the Campbell, Pentland, Mc-'  Vittie, Sb. Paul, Huron and Tampa,  and at least six other steamers  whose names are unknown.  to  to  to  to  to  to  axxxzxzxxxmxxsxxxxxxznxzxxiixxxx  LADIES' SAILORS  SPECIAL  '   PRICE 50c.

Smith Curtis has now shown himself to be a political trickster by  opposing in the legislature the nearest approach which the finances of  the province will permit to the  state-owned railway he applauded  from the stump.  Tub Rossland Miner denounces  Joseph Martin for supporting in the  legislature'the policy which he advocated from the stump, and applauds the treachery of Smith  Curtis, who from tho hustings  preached government ownership  and control of railways, and in the  legislature supports Jim Hill's holdup game for a subsidy for the same  railway upon his own terms.  When James J. Hill refuses to  give the people of British Columbia  competition for the subsidy he desires with whicli to build his railway, ib would be idle to expect  competition from him after his railway was built.

Chinese Offer Resistance.  Bijri.in, April 25.���The Lokal  Anzieger's special correspondent,  cabling from Ching Ting, about 75  miles southwest of Pao Ting Fu,  says: "The German and French  expedition is approaching the front  of the Chinese army, which is apparently 25,000 strong, and is intrenched in three portions. The  Germans marched over difficult  mouutain passes to the gate of the  great wall at Nieng Twi Kan.

The man Fraleigh, who was injured at the smelter a few days ago,  is reported- as progressing favorably  at the general hospital.

WILL AMEND THE TARIFF  In Deference to Demands.  London, April 20.���The house of  commons had a dull sitting last  evening devoted to tlie discussion  aud formal passage of the budget  resolution. The Irish members made  an ineffectual attempt to get the  tea duty reduced from six to. four  pence. The proposal was rejected  by a vote of 221 to 140. A similar  fate was ,reserved for the attempt  of William Redmond to get Ireland  exempted from the tobacco duty.  It is now asserted that an attempt will. be made to induce the  chancellor of the exchequer to modify the coal duty by threats of a  great strike of miners.  The second reading of the finance  bill has been postponed for a ..fortnight, and the Liberal party will  utilize the delay to the utmost in  working up an agitatiou against  the budget. The opposition leaders  intend to raise a full dress debate  on the second reading, and then, if  not before, the chancellor of the  exchequer, according to the Daily  Telegiaph, will announce a substantial modification of his original pro:'  pos'als as to the sugar duty, in  deference to the views of the grocery trade that the duty will unfairly tax canned fruits, condensed  milk and the like.

Ashcroft, April 25.���The body  of the Chinaman supposed to have  been murdered a few weeks ago,  and for which two Chinamen are  now in Kamloops jail awaiting  trial at the Clinton assizes, was  taken out of the Thompson river  last night about three miles below  Ashcroft, by officer Burr, and has  been fully identified. An inquest  is now being held -on the remains.  The body was discovered by the  young son of Robertson, a section  foreman, two or three days ago,  who informed his father and  brother.", but could not get them to  go down to the river, as they  thought the boy had-mistaken a  log or something for the body. Last  night the boy again visited the  river bank and found the body had  moved down on a bar. He could  plainly see the hands above water.  The Chinese here are much excited  over-the affair, and there will be a  determined effort at the -trial between the rival tongs -to acquit or  convict the accused. It is supposed  that the boy Robertson- will receive  the reward offered by the Chinese  friends of the murdered man, of  $200, and perhaps $500, for the  finding of the body.
