Back From New WHfCminster.
Police constable Hebuer returned
fiom Now Westminster last night,
having safely lodged in the asylum
there William Pell, a very troublesome character, recently pronounced insane. Fell gave- a lot of
trouble on the way down, and not
only deprived his guardian of sleep,
but kejjt every soul on,the train
widtf awake ' aud uncomfortable.
He was so violent on several occasions that the constable > was
obliged to summon help" to keep the
insane man within bounds.
Early Closing to Start Thursday.
Tlie- agreement to close their
establishments every Thursday
afternoonN during the summer
months has been so generally signed by local merchants that it may
now be accepted as an accomplished fact. On Thursday the new
arrangement goe9 into force, and
customers will be notified of the
fact- so as to prevent any inconvenience. Unless, of course, every
branch of trade lives faithfully up
to the terms of the agreement, the
arrangement will fall through.
However, early closing for one day
portance~is~tbatT(lealing with spec-
ial free minei s' certificates,' which
under the old act could be procured
at'any .time to cure defect in, title
caused by the lapse of the ordinary
free miner's certificate. rThe act "as
it will be amended will provide tliat
in future ail such special certificates
must "be taken' out' .within six
months from,the date,of the expir-
tion of the ordinary "certificate. * ■<
Another, important/amendment
deals with the recording, of "claims'
in thernames;of' frfee 'miners- by-
agents.' 'Heretofore prospectors
carried about the numbers of free
miners' certificates held: by friends
and freely used them for; the purpose of recording locations in excess
of ,the* limitations tof the "act.1
The "^amendment , proposed-'.-sets'
put that beforo'making any 'such
records as agent a power of attorney must be li'ed in the office of
the mining-rewrder for the division
in which the claim is situated, and
no such agent shall locate^or record
more tlian one' claim each for two
principals on each separate vein or
load.l '' ■   -
Another amendment" provides
that work done upon trails, to the
satisfaction of the-gold commis-
sionersor mining recorder, may be
counted on certificates for work.

'.New York, April 28.—The cable
despatch* printed" in "the Tribune >
this 'morning, from   London from
Mr. I. N: Ford says English politics
are in a transition stage, where the
unexpected may happen 'any day.
Th.e chief safeguard against a crisis
in the relation of the parties organ-'
ized is the South African war.   Important changes in - the leadership
of the commons or the premiership
are  deferred, "while the slow but
steady progress of British arms is
maintained and the Liberals, 'while
deriving partisan ,f enjoymeht • from
harassing tactics and the cutting
down of government majorities, are
not prepared to,take up the responsibility of winding upa campaign which   the mation  is   bent
upon .finishing,v'even if "the cost of
.the war'be doubled and the entire
free trade system abandoned.
The government is in no danger
even if the majority fell 33 last
night with'21 Nationalists absent;
but while its supporters can.be
rallied, with* better whipping, the
party lacks unity of 'direction and
"strength1 of leadership, and there is
intense dissatisfaction among the
old Tories over the stateness of
ministers and the lack of 'efficiency
in the administration. The rumors
of cabinet intrigues are groundless,
but the diplomatic, financial' and
military -methods of government
are exciting harsh criticism and
distrust/ "        y ( '    '
1 M. Deldasse's mission to St. Peters-'

ceremonial incident of the Russian-
French alliance.
London, April 28.—Lord Kitchener continued the process of wearing down the Boers, who, however,
are very active in the Kroonstadt
district, where they recently derailed two trains and also captured

official announcement has yet been
made it seems probable-'that the
poition of the new British loan1

covered about seven times. The

more enthusiastically and much
more popularly.

partly suffocated while assisting in
the work of rescue. Five miners
were, known to have been in the

Thirty mine mules were at the;-V*

d nt's boarding house. McDonald
said he and Callahan were together
, between the [hours of 3:30 and 5
o'clock. McDonald remembered the
date because it was the twentieth
birthday of his son.
On cross- examination he admitted
having recfl atly told two detectives
tuat he wa=i not quite bine whether
it was December 18th or the- day
or second day following. Mamie
McDonald, the little daughter of
the preceding witness proved an
unfortunate witness for the defence. She said she remembered a
man called Johnson who often visited Callahan, end heard it whispered that he was Pat Crowe. -At
the openiDg ot the afternoon session, Callahan testified'in his own
behalf. His story was a series of
denials of all the allegations of tl e
state. He said he spent the aftei -
noon of December 18th at hotnr,
and in the evening played cards at
a saloon in South Omaha.

day's Review says:-The .expansion1
df'the German navy is more in preparation for a 'contest with s.the'
Britain, because the various "i excuses for*future naval conflicts will
be found in ■ the struggle for the
partition or the exploitation of, the
great South American continent.
The Review devotes'a page to a description of the resources of South
America, and Germany's hundreds
of thousands of settlers in Brazil
and Chili, and the inability, of Germany's pursuing her designs ^ in
South America without a conflict
with the United States. The article concludes with the statement
that it would not be good policy
for Great Britain to oppose Germany's legitimate aims, and that an
alliance with the United States
that had for its purpose the -.maintenance of the Munroe doctrine
'•would not only be ludicrously in
opposition to our own interests, but
it would rightly arouse every other
nation to a death struggle against
a genuine Anglo-Saxon menace.    ,

Police Constable Hebner  played the role of politician, $nd as  MacKen/.ie-Bowell was introduced  to the demented man. They stepped  into the carriage in waiting and  were driven to the provincial jail,  where there was some trouble in  satisfactorily   explaining the situation.    The  poor   fellow   will   be  brought before  Dr.  LaBau* today,  and will no doubt be committed to  the insane asylum at New Westminster. '  .-,'   .     PERSONAL.'
