Chinese Occupation May  Cost Allies  More Than the Resources of  the Country Can Stand.  m  II  "% *  \i  m-  i  ')���  ���1 ���*  Pekin, April 29.���At a conference  of the foreign ministers today some  time was spent in considering the  reply of the ministers to the view*  recently enunciated by the generals  regarding questions of a purely  military character. The ministers  agree witli the generals as to razing  the forts, and also as to the points  to" be'occupied between Pekin and  the sea, but they desire the generals  to specify the, numbers of the  different nationalities at Tien Tain  and Shan Hai Kwan. So far as  concerns the garrison of four thousand men, which is to remain provisionally at Tien Tsin during the  ' period of actual occupation, it will  be necessary, that each nation's  strength shall be determined. The  ministers believe that the provincial  government at Tien Tsin should be  abolished as soon as the situation  permits. They agree that the  forces in China should be under one  commander-in-chief, but they contend that the generals should  �� understand that tlie legation guards  are entirely outside such forces,  and under their respective ministers.  The ministers suggested that it  would be necessary for the generals  to consider the advisability of entrusting the police and administration of Pekin to Chinese officials,  about one month before the evacuation ; but iu considering this ques  ,/. tion they urged that the fact must  be recalled that there had never  been military administration, or a  permanent military organization in  Pekin, as troops Avith banners could   not be considered such. -.Concernipg^  the question of military evacuation  the ministers informed the generals  that a proposition so conceived had  been submitted unanimously, by  the representatives "of the powers  to their governments, that a partial  reduction of troops - was already  possible, but the evacuation proper  could . not* commence before "the  Chinese government had fulfilled  articles two and ten ; of the joint  note, and not before China had  accepted the general conditions for  the payment of indemnities.  Paris, April 30.���The foreign  office has received a dispatch from  Meng Tze, province of Yun Nan,  announcing the arrival there of M.  Francois, the French consul, on his  return to his post. He says that  according to the demands of the  Fre"nch~governmentrhe~was~m~et~by~  Chinese troops ten kilometers from  Meng Tze. They rendered him  honors, and high mandarins preferred the official apologiea and re-  gtets of the Chinese government  for the events of last June.  Bisiu.in, April 30.���It is stated  by officials here that the main German �� expeditionary force in China  is now withdrawing to its former  position, leaving .a garrison at tho  pass at the great wall. The uon-  participation of tho French in the  battle was, not duo to orders received from Paris, but to. their failure to arrive in time. Further expeditions are not projected and will  depend upon whether the Chinese  make such expeditions necessary.  In official circles it is believed that  general Liu acted upon his own  initiative, or perhaps at the suggestion of some anti-foreign mandarin,  the officials not believing that the  Chinese government ordered general Liu to resist the Germans,  since such action is plainly against  the government's interests.  Berlin, April 30.���Official dispatches have., been * received here  ���confirming previous dispatches  from Pekin, to the effect that  major-general Von Guyl has been  appointed chief of staff to field  marshal Von Waldersee, succeeding general Schwaerf/.hoff, who lost  his life in the' fire that destroyed  count Von Waldersee's headquarters.   7     ' ���  '; Father and Son Murderers.  !        Kansas City, April 30.���Dr. J. L.  I Gartrell, 70 years old, today con-  ���*!��� fessed to chief of police Hays,, that  i he killed D. B. Donegan, a Colorado  miner,   whose   body   was    fouud I  J recently in a muddy creek between j  ,-'/  Amoret and Nihart, Missouri. The  confession was in writing. W. P.  Gartrell, the doctor's son, confessed  to his knowledge of the crime and  to helping dispose of the body. The  men were arrested last night after  Dr. Gartrell had demanded the proceeds from a sale of Donegan's team  and wagon which hadcbeen sold by.  a local dealer. The younger Gartrell was the first to confess. When  shown his son's confession, Dr.  Gartrell admitted having killed  Donegan with an axe. Donegan  left Colorado for Kansas City  March 15th, and was driving to  Oklahoma when he met the  Gar tr ells.   MONTREAL  IS  DISCARDED  MORGAN'S SHIPPING  DEAL  EXPLAINED   B7  CHAIRMAN   OF  THE LEYLAND LINE..  He Has Not Control But Will Have  Satisfactory. Arrangements With  Controlling Interest.  BY THE GRAND TRUNK RAILWAY  COMPANY.  President Rivers-Wilson Says Portland  Is the Natural Outlet for Canada's  Bonused Railway.  London, April 30.���The semiannual meeting of shareholders of  the Grand Trunk railroad today  was largely attended. The directors' reports showing decreases in  receipts, and an increase in the expenses, were accepted without criticism. The president, sir Charles  Rivers-Wilson, said the Buffalo  exhibition ought to' bring largely  increased traffic, and recommended  that the shareholders visit it. He  dilated on the advantages owhich  accrued to the Grand Trunk railway by the new arrangement allowing it to enter the Union Depot at  Buffalo. Referring to the company's  intention to spend $40,000 at Portland, Maine, for the construction of  a new grain elevator, sir -Charles-  said the feeling ia. Canada over the  patronage of an American port was  quite unjustifiable, as Montreal's  facilities for shipping and storing  grain were extremely- inadequate:  Sentiment must not be allowed to  interfere with business, but-he was  glad to say Montreal contemplated  making considerable improvements.  Portland, however, was the natural  outlet of- the line. The retiring  directors were re-elected.  TRAMWAY SCHEME KILLED  Greenwood Bags Deposit. ���  Greenwood, April 30.���[Special  to The Tribune.!���The agreement  between the Greenwood-Phoenix  Tramway Company and the city  was killed in committee of the city,  council at last night's meeting. The  company asked for a bonus of $50,-  000, with the privilege of using cer-  tain^streetsTand'to^pel^tWbysteam-  or electricity. At the time of the  first application the company deposited a forfeit of $5000 with the  city as a guarantee to begin work  within a certain period. Failing  this the city has confiscated the deposit. While there seemed to be  little opposition to granting; the  bonus the members of the council  objected to allowing the company  to run cars propelled - by -steam  power on Copper street, the main  business thoroughfare. The 'citizens  generally regret the action taken,  as all realize that the construction  of the tramway between here and  Phoenix, tapping as it would nearby  camps, must have built up Greenwood trade to an appreciable extent.        ��  To Be Buried Today.  P. J. Gallagher, an old schoolmate of Dennis'Coughlin, who died  in the general hospital on Monday,  arrived in town yesterday to look  after the funeral of his deceased  friend. The funeral will start from  the undertaking parlors this morning in time to reach the Roman  Catholic church by 8 o'clock; when  high mass will be said, after which  the procession will leave for the  cemetery.  Improving the Court House'Grounds.  The contractors for the excavation work at the new custom-house-  postoffice building having filled in  the opening on Vernon street  opposite the Hume Hotel, yesterday  commenced to dump on the court  house grounds, where the chain  gang is' at work -spreading the  earth. It is hoped there will be  sufficient material available to bring  the grounds up to street level.  London, April 30.���A circular  was issued this morning by chairman EUerman of the Leyland line,  in, which he informs the shareholders that he has entered into a provisional contract with J. Peirpont  Morgan, for the sale of his entire  holdings or ordinary-shares Jn the  steamship line, namely 71,000 shares;  at fourteen pounds ten shillings per  share for each ten pound share, and  that Mr. Morgan agrees to purchase  on similar terms all ordinary shares  offered before May 20th.  Mr. Ellerman binds himself not  to engage either "directly, or indirectly in the -"North Atlantic  trade, either with the-United'Kingdom or the continent, except between Antwerp and Montreal, for  a term of fourteen years, on condition that the purchasers sell him  the Mediterranean, Portugal, and  the Montreal fleets, and the business  connected therewith* at an agreed  price. Mr. Ellerman adds that he  proposes to retain his entire holdings in preference shares,' amount-"  ing to over ��180,000, and his co-  directors will retain all the preference holdings, amounting to ��120,-  000. Mr. Ellerman also offers- to  buy any- preference shares,. at par  and their accrued interests.  A circular is issued by the secretary of the Leyland # line and accompanies Mr. Ellerman's circular.  It explains that the directors, including Mr. Ellerman, hold ��886,-  080 out of .,��1,200,000 ordinary  shares capital, and ��314,000 out of  ��414,000 preference capital. Several  directors .-also - control' a large  amount bt other shares, and.all.the  directors intend to vote in support  of Mr. Ellerman's arrangement at  all the meetings called in connection therewith.  This shipping deal creates great  interest in ��� the commercial world.  Though no definite information is,  yet obtainable it is understood that  the American line management has  also been iu conference with Messrs.  Morgan & Baker, with the. idea'  either of joining or making a  working arrangement. Liverpool  shipping circles this morning- were  seemingly ignorant of this phase.  They predict sharp competition between the Morgan people and the  American line.  Aside from the hew combination  there is general activity among all  steamship lines. Two conferences  will be held in the ��� near future.  The first will be held with the view  of bringing the White Star and  Cuuard lines into .the continental  pool. . The second- will- be a conference of the other..'lines to fix  a uniform steerage rate. It will  be held in Paris this.week.  They Want. Creamery -Butter.' '���.  ... ; >, .   .*;.  ������- , ���    -. -.-,y;> "^-^~i. **.     - -r.     ���  ; Messrs. Starkeyr;&|jC!o.%��''esterday  received a letter fi'iom''H*��;;L'.'Borderi  at Ottawa. acknowledging the receipt bf their communication; with  respect to the. management of the  government creameries,- and stating  that he would dendeavor to have  the grievance to which they referred.brought to-the. attention of  the house at an early date.. The  grievance alluded to is that the  firm are anxious to handle the prit?-  duct of the, creameries, and that  they are unable to obtain from the  proper authorities the information  for which they apply.: -They have  asked to be allowed- jtoj"tender on  the butter, for instance, rand were  informed that there was none available, while at the time it was, and  they claim is, being bandied by  other jobbers in the Kootenays.  The subject* was brought up in the  Dominion house recently, but nothing has been done to rectify  matters, and Starkey & Co. persist  in their claim that there should be  no special privilege in handling the  products of the creameries.  Board of Works at Burial Ground.  A couple' of covered carriages  yesterday pulled up at the city  hall, and having taken on board  the ^<5ity clerk, city engineer and  members of the board of worksy]  drove off, heading for the cemetery.  Speculation was rife and extrava-.  gant as to the object of the trip.  Mayor Fletcher hinted that they  were about to bury the board of  works, but the safe return of that  august body dissipated that idea.  Tlie truth is the party was on a  tour of inspection, and "took in"  the cemetery to. enquire into-the  best and cheapest method of supplying the grounds with water. At  present the cemetery is a bleak  looking spot, the graves being entirely unadorned. The result ot  the trip will be reported to the city  council next Monday evening.  J. C.

The performance started  with club swinging, tumbling and  horizontal bar exercises, and when  the two light-weights made their  appearance they received quite an  ovation. Charlie Goff refereed the  contest and at the close declared it  a draw. Iu the fourth round Slugg  had his right arm injured and  for the remainder of the fight was  obliged to act chiefly, on the defensive. Both men displayed considerable skill, but Ellis- had the  advantage of a couple of inches in  height and and a longer reach.-.

There  was not a single arrest for assault  or theft. There was one professional  gambler before the magistrate, and  he was fined $25 and costs. This  appears to have had a salutary  effect, as it has rid the town* of  many who lived by gambling.  The Fire' Department.  - The fire' brigade responded .-to-but  four calls during the month, and  the total damage was only $43.  This was on April 1st, at the residence of C. D. Curtis. The loss was  fully covered by insurance. On the  Oth the brigade was again out,  when a couple of Italians' shacks  were ablaze near ��the gas works.

The election of oflicers  ���was left over until after the first  practice, which will be held on  Thursday afternoon in the recrea-.  tion grounds at 3 o'clock.

Those who attended the athletic  tournament under the auspices of  the Nelson Athletic Club last night  enjoyed themselves. The feature  of the evening was a ten-round  sparring contest between Billy  l>'Ellis,  champion of Manitoba, and  Victoria, April 30.���[Special to  The Tribune]���The estimates were  practically disposed of today without any great amount of discussion.  At the night -.session a number of  unimportant bills were read a third  time.  The Supreme Court bill went  through committee. .Victoria aud  ���Vancouver are designated as the  places at which sessions of the appellate court are to be held. Houston has given notice that he will  move as an amendment to the bill  on report, that Nelson be substituted for Vancouver as one of. the  places at which the court shall sit.  On moving the second reading'of  the bill to amend the Mineral -Act,  the minister of mines said he was  sorry that he could not follow the  recommendation of the mining committee to not amend the act at this  session, as he had urgent requests  from mining men in the JKootenay  to amend the act in the direction  outlined in the bill.  Green, of Slocan," urged the minister of mines to withdraw the bill  as its passage meant that every  member would deem it incumbent  to bring in what they thought were  needed amendments.  Neill, of Alberni, read one of the  sections in the proposed bill to  show how absurdly it was worded.  He said if it became a law every  prospector would be required to  have a small law library in his possession.  Houston, of Nelson, maintained  that the press of Kootenay was  unanimously opposed to amending  the act, aud read a criticism of the  proposed measure that had been  forwarded���to-him-by-one-of���tho-  best known mining men in Kootenay. He also wanted to know why  it was that the decisions of the railway and private bills committees  of the house were respected by the  government, while those of the  mining committee were ignored.  Curtis, of Rossland,"anil Martin,  of Vancouver, both urged that tho  bill be withdrawn. Smith, of Lil-  loet, favored the bill. Hunter, of  Cariboo, was of the opinion that  the bill had better be withdrawn.  On motion of the minister finance  the debate was adjourned.  No Trial by News Prints.  - Toledo, Ohio. April 30.���When  the case of Charles Foster, under  indictment for the murder of  W. C. Johnson, the celery king, was  called .in the common, pleas court  today, Judge Boston Young entered the following singular order  against the press: "The court is  moved to make an order restraining any person giving out for publication the evidence given in this  trial of Charles Foster, or anything  purporting to the evidence given  in this case in the trial of said  case."  Made a Small Haul.  Guilford, Maine, April 30.���The  vault of the First National bank of  this town was wrecked early today  by burglars who had heavily-charged it with dynamite. The two  outer doors of the vault were blown  off, but the safe of the interior,  which contained a large amount of  money, withstood the force of the  explosion and the burglars were  obliged to abandon the attempt to  reach the cash box. They found  $115 in silver in the money drawer  of the counter and escaped.  PLAIN TALKING COMMONERS  KILL OBJECTIONABLE RAILWAY  LEGISLATION.

Hardy, however, proceeded .to  say  that the working  people regarded  the house as an annex to the Stcck  Exchange.  The house then divided and rejected the motion by 2GS to 205  votes.

ISLil  Durban, Natal, April 29.���The  Boers who are surrendering at  Standerton, are in a wretched condition. Many of them are wearing  trousers made of blankets. They  state that fifty per cent of the  burghers in the field desire to surrender, but cannot escape from their  commandos. The British raiding  parties have been successful in capturing cattle within"the Boer lines,  and from their laagers.  The prime minister of Queensland has been entertained here. At  the reception given in his honor  the representatives of the Canadian  government spoke. They said they  were investigating matters connected with the trade between Canada  and Natal and were seeking means  to improve the commercial relations  between the two countries. They  claimed that Canadians could supply as good products as the Americans, and that they were more  honest iu their dealings.  Father Drowns His Children.

All are supposed to  have been drowned. None of the  bodies have yet been recovered, but  according to police reports satisfactory evidence is at hand that the  crime was committed. A policeman found a horse hitched to a  buggy wandering about in the  vieinity of the Marshall avenuo  bridge Thursday. In the buggy  was a dog which had been a pet of  the children, but no other trace of  the occupants had been found.  *l  ml  ::;iSl  TV-"*/  --Ml  '���'.��fcj��f  '���.���WSI THE TRIBUNE:  NELSON, B.

Montreal, April 30.���There are  no nevv developments in the cigar-  makers' strike. The manufacturers  claim they are securing men rapidly  to fill the strikers' places, and this  is borne out by the threat of the  men that unless the manufacturers  |ii; capitulate they will start a co-oper-  ;  ative factory.   A meeting is to be  I-/ held tomorrow morning to take  this move into, consideration. The  strike is costing the union $300 per  week, and the leaders say a factory  could be started with the cost of  ten weeks' strike. They think the  plan will bring the manufacturers  to terms.

SHARKS SWINDLED WIDOWS  With an Insurance Dodge.  London, April 30.���The Insurance  Review tomorrow will expose in  detail the swindle referred to by  the Statist on April 21st,'when the  latter announced the discovery of a  clique of swindlers, making London  their headquarters, who professed  to represent a--leading American insurance company. According to  the Insurance Review, hundreds of  Frenchmen have been swindled by  the method mentioned by the  Statist. eThe swindlers would  notify the familyof a man recently  deceased that jthe last premium  which ought to have been paid  at a given ��� date, usually very  recent,'had not been paid, and that  if it was not forwarded by  a specified date the policy  would lapse. The widow would  then hasten to send a remittance.  The swindlers transacted business  in' the name of the Golden Grain Insurance Company of New York,  with a capital of 10,000,000 francs.  All the communications of the concern,'a fac simile of ���whose headlines are reproduced, are signed J.  E. Vilmoren, 16 Old Compton street,  London, which is a cheap French  cafe. Vilmoren's agents in France,  who kept him informed as to the  deaths of well-to-do persons, all  proved their innocence and were  released. The authorities of Scotland Yard are sea-rolling for the instigators but without success to the  present.  Big Cigarmakers' Combine.
