Array Mineral Production of British Columbia in 1900  $16,407,645  Mineral Production of Kootenay fij 1800  $10,562,032  NINTH YEAR.  NELSON, B. C, TUESDAY MORNING, MAY 7,  1901  PRICE FIVE CENTS  SUNDAY CLOSING ON GAMES  THE   RECREATION   GROUNDS   TO  REMAIN   IDLE  Because Some People Object to Noise  and Amusement on the  Sabbath.  There was a full attendance at  the weekly meeting of the city  council last night, and it looked for  a while as if the session was going  to be short and unimportant, but  before adjourning a surprise was  sprung in the form of a resolution  forbidding games to be played at  the recreation grounds on Sundays.  And it carried. There was no  report from the board of works,  and only a very brief one from the  finance committee.  On going over the bills presented  for settlement oue was challenged,  being a charge of $5 per day for  the services of a nurse who attended to the diphtheria cases recently. The woman had been 29  days in charge of the patients. It  was decided to pay $75 on account,  pending a settlement of tlie  claim.  A. Hiildes wrote asking that the  stables bought by 'him*, from the  city at $25 be taken back or rented  tor $10 per month. It was decided  to offer the applicant a refund of  the money, namely $25.  Several applications wero read  From persons anxious to have crossings and sidewalks laid, and referred to the board of works.  The cemetery by-law was once  again laid over.  A petition was read from the residents of Hume addition asking  that a water main be laid, and setting forth that such service might  be a source of revenue to the city.  Referred to board of works.  Alderman Hamilton moved that  the use of tho. recreation giounds  lie not allowed for,games on Sunday. In doing so he said that a  great many people were opposed to  Suuday games and the noise made  at the recreation grounds when  Sunday games were in operation.  Id was further alleged that children  going to Sunday school often spent  their time in looking at the play. He  understood there were available  grounds at the park at the end ol*  tlie tram line. If so, there would  be no 'hardship*' in haying the Sunday games played there. Such an  arrangement would overcome the  difficulty.  Alderman Irving took a similar  view. If there was another place  available outside the city limits  Sunday games should be played  there.  The   mayor���Would   the   moral  =a9pect=be=ehanged=by-=having=the=  games   played    outside    the    city  limits?  Alderman Hamilton���No, but it  would not be so objectionable.  The mayor said he understood  that at a meeting of the tramway  company they decided that the  crowd ought to be brought out to  their park on Sundays instead of  remaining in town to see; a ball  game.    (Laughter.)  Alderma-n Selous���I have passed  that park scores of times and I can  tell you that there is no place there  to play a ball game. I think that  those who favor wholesome, healthy  recreation should have something to  ���Buy also. I take the ground that it  is far better for young men  ito enjoy themselves there on Sunday than to mope about town and  get into mischief. They are far  better playing or watching a game  than they would be in other places  that I could name. If it is a question of noise���if that is what these  people object to���t may say that  the harsh, discordant sound of the  church bell is in finitely more annoy-  iing to me than the noise these  (people complain of. Now, if we  put up with this noise the least the  Presbyterians and Methodists may  do is to tolerate the little noise  ���made at tlie recreation grounds.  Every one of those young fellows  will indulge in recreation, and you  -won't get them to go to Sunday  school.  Alderman Irving���There is no  comparison between the church  bell and the noise made at. a ball  game.  Alderman Selous���It is infinitely  more annoying to me and to others.  The mayor���You cannot stop  them playing ball there.  One-third  of   the   recreation   ground   is   on  other people's property.  Alderman Gillett thought the  games could be stopped.  The mayor pointed out that in  Boston and other advanced and  well governed cities Sunday games  were always indulged in in the  public parks.  Alderman Gillett���But there are  no churches near.  Alderman Selous���There are no  churches near the recreation  grounds. ���  The mayor���You can't prevent  men playing quoits in their gardens, cau you?  Alderman Solous did not favor  one section of a community, and a  'minority, trying to control another  section who were the majority. The  next thing they would be wanting  to do was to prevent people walking pn Sunday or going on the  water.  The mayor said he lived near two  churches and the noise' from these  places was very objectionable, especially when the baby wanted a  sleep.  .   Alderman Selous���Oh, let us be  tolerant.  After some further discussion the  motion was put and declared carried. Those who voted for were  aldermen Hamilton, Irving, Gillett  and Paterson. Against aldermen  Selous, Madden and the mayor. '  The mayor���You ought to pass a  by-law forbidding the running of  street cars, on Sunday. It is not  fair that people should be disturbed, as they certainly make a  great noise. If there is anybody  sick along the route it is most disagreeable. It is only reasonable to  follow out these lines since: you  have taken the matter of Sunday  games and Sunday noises up. It is  a subject I hope the council will  deal with at its next meeting.  Tlie council adjourned till Wednesday  morning..  The Old Country Gold Find. .  A few days ago there appeared  in This Tribune an accouut of a  gold find at Leith, in England. The  gold was said to run 30 ounces to  lhe ton, but as it was found iu the  digging of a cellar, exploration  ceased. That- is the way they  "prospect" in old England. The  Daily Graphic iu alluding to the  iind, says: "The accounts of gold  found at Leith would, perhaps,  have excited less surprise aud even  incredulity, if more people had  been familiar with the annual blue  books issued by the board of trade  on mines and quarries in the United  Kingdom and the colonies. According to the last blue book just issued,  there were, in the precediug year  3047 statute tons of gold ore exca-  vavated in the United Kingdom,  which were estimated at the diggings as worth about ��10,000. The  ore actually produced 3327 ounces���  rather more than an ounce a ton-  valued at ��12,086. What may excite almost as much surprise is that  iu the same time 191,927 ounces of  ^silveiwwere=smelted=in=the=same-  period, with an estimated value of  ��21,942. Aluminum, copper, lead,  iron, sodium, tin and zinc were the  other "home made" metals, and  their value at the average market  price was put at ��18,314,750, so  that the old country is not used  up yet.      _^^_  "Twa Hours at Hame."  At a meeting of the St. Andrew's  Society the other night arrangements were made to secure the appearance in Nelson on the 20th  instant of Gavin Spence and Miss  Flora Macdonald, a pair of Scottish  entertainers who have won renown  wherever they have performed.  They are not alone good singers  but they introduce character  sketches which are said to be very  clever. The proceeds of the entertainment, after expenses are paid,  will be devoted to local charities,  A committee consisting of George  Kydd, J. Gibson and J. K. Strachan  has been appointed to look after all  details aud these gentlemen promise  a great treat.  Eighteen Months for Forgery.  The New Denver Hungarian with  tlie peculiar name was brought before Mr. Justice Drake yesterday  morning, having elected for speedy  trial on a charge of raising a check  from $7 to $17. He pleaded guilty  and was sentenced to eighteen  months' imprisonment with hard  labor.. The offender is a young  man of about 20 years of age, and  pleaded in extenuation of his  offence that he was hard up. The  judge, however, did not accept the  plea, and imposed the year and a  half, pointing out that foreigners  who will raise checks are better in  prison than at large.  THE ASSIZES OPEN TODAY  CRIMINAL    DOCKET     CONSIDERABLY   REDUCED.  Only   Two   Cases   to   be   Heard   and  , These From Outside for Murder and Cattle Stealing.  The assizes open in Nelson today  before Mr. justice Drake, and the  criminal docket, which looked a  heavy one a couple of weeks ago,  has been reduced to two cases���one  murder and the other cattle stealing. The murder case comes from  the Boundary country, and the  cattle stealing from East Kootenay.  Matthers vs. Mansfield has been  adjourned by consent, and Brewster, charged with house breaking  has elected for speedy trial and will  have his case heard at Greenwood.  A couple of days will probably suffice to dispose of the criminal business, and Mr. justice Drake will take  up any" civil business ; which may  offer on Monday next, instead of on  Tuesday as originally fixed.  The civil list is rather heavy.  The first nameon the docket is that  of McMillan vs... Sandilands. Osier.  vs. Moore is an old rembrant of  litigation. It has been on for many  months, and had its origin in a  claim for commission by plaintiff  for the sale uf some mining properties. Defendant Moore is now  back in Nova Scotia, but may be on  hand in time for the trial.  La Blanc vs. Lambert and McBeath vs..Emerson are cases which  are likely to occupy a good deal of  time. "l  Cordingly vs. the Guardian, Scottish Union and Queen fire insurance  companies is a local case to which  considerable attention attaches. It  will be remembered that the plaintiff conducted business as a furniture dealer at. the west end of  Bttker street. "The premises took'  fire, and as a result Cordingly was.  arrested on a charge of arson. He  was, however, acquitted, but the  companies in which the stock was  insured refused to recognize his  claim for damages. Hence the  present action.  Peters vs. the Nelson Electrie  Tramway Company is another local  case of importance. The plaintiff  was engaged as motorman by the  company, but on his initial run the  car got derailed, and he lost an arm  in the accident.' He subsequently  entered the employ of the company  and did not enter proceedings for  compensation until he left the  service.  Fenwick vs. the British Columbia  Southern is an action to reebver  $1500 for damages sustained by  ^M^rT^f'th^allegM'hTfgle^t'pirtlre"  part of the company to maintain its  plant in safe working order.  These are the only cases entered  up to date, but there will probably  be a few others before the assizes  terminate.  Mining Records.  The following are the mining  transactions recorded yesterday:  Certificates of work'were granted  to W. A. Connell on the Essie, to  John Deserieu on the Red Fly, to  P. G. Johnson on the Mattie B, to  N. Hartman on the Air Castle and  Silver Crest, to Rice Kellogg on the  Reuben and to J. Shuttleworth  on  the    Keystone     Fraction.    --New  records were: The Cumberland, by  C. A. Hanna, situate between Rest  and Burnet creeks, about four miles  from Erie; on the Cumberland extension, in same district, by M. D.  Clements, and on the Monitor on  Iron mountain, by Cyril H. Green.  There were no transfers br sales  recorded.  The Footballers' Night Out,  The Nelson team who defeated  Cranbrook on Sunday were showing the visitors around after supper, when, through the over-  zeal of a police constable, they  came to grief. Nelson men say  that while in Cranbrook the freedom of the town was voted them,  and nothing was left undone to  make them happy���even those of  them that were quarantined. Hence  when the East Kootenay contingent came over here to play the  home club strained every nerve to  reciprocate. They seemed to think  that they should enjoy some little  latitude, but the police thought  differently  and  have   issued  sum- j  monses for disorderly * conduct  against a few of the footballers.  The matter is very bitterly discussed by all lovers of sport in the  city.  *:   Over One Hundred Thousand Dollars.  At a meeting of the directors of  the B. C. Permanent Loan & Savings Company held at? the head  oflice, 321 Cambie street, Vancouver,  B. C, on Thursday, the 2nd inst.,  eleven loans were granted amounting to $12,200.00, making a grand  total of $103,950.60 granted in less  than ten weeks, which is at the rate,  of over a half a million dollars per  annum.  The income of the B. C. Permanent Loan & Savings Company, of  Vancouver, B. C. for the month of  April, amounted to $21,518.90, and  during the same month the amount  of $29,559.70 was; paid out on account of loans.      i  YACHTS TRY CONCLUSIONS  "Back From the Lardeau.  P. Chapman has just returned  from a trip through the Lardeau iu  the interests of A. Macdonald &  Co., and gives a very encouraging  account of the country. The building of the railway from Lardo to  TroutLake is giving a great impetus  to mining and trade generally, and  the people are jenjoying a very  busy time. Mr. Chapman reports  that the good people of the Lardeau  are great admirers of Nelson, and  that they are preparing some beautiful samples of ore to add to the  collection in the board of trade  rooms here.  Fancy Dress Concert.  There was a full dress rehearsal of  the children's faiicy dress concert  last night, which was witnessed by  a number of privileged people. The  little ones showed up in great style  and gave the undoubted assurance  of a big success for tomorrow evening���the date fixed for the performance. Among the attractive  features are a good night drill, the  fairies' revenge, a glimpse of the  Brownies and a mother goose  party. The concert is given in aid  of the Presbyterian church building  fund. ;._,  A Distressing Case.  The old man Markell is still held  in custody pending medical examination. His is a peculiar case. It  is not charged that he is a dangerous lunatic, but yet he is hot able  to care for himself. He is hardly a  case for a lunatic asylum and has  not been long enough in the country to qualify for admission to the  old men's home at Kamloops. Markell spent most of his time in Kaslo  and only paid Nelson an occasional  visit since 1892.  Preparing for the Contest.  Charlie Goff had his last sparing  exercise in the fire hall yesterday,  and says he will not put on the  gloves again until he meets Jimmie  Burns in the ring at the opera  IrousenbirFridSyTfiiglrtT==Bufnsl3onr  tinues in training and his trainer  avows that his man was never in  better condition. Both contestants  will put on the gloves in the best  of form, and will show some smart  and scientific work.  Only Two Drunks in Court.  There were only two drunks in  police court yesterday morning.  The first was a new offender in this  district at least, and was fined $5  and costs. The second was a somewhat old offender and in his case  the fine was raised to $10 and  costs whicli brings it up to  $12.25. He is a local expressman  who goes on a periodical.  Health Talk.  An illustrated health talk to  mothers and daughters will be given  at the Fraternity hall, on Saturday,  May llth, at 3 o'clock p. m., by Miss  Ball, of the Canadian- Viavi Company. Collection will' be taken up  to defray expenses.   " ..  s' "  The hotels of the city were filled  to overflowing last night. The  opening of tlie assizes' today has  brought to town a number of the  legal profession as well as parties  engaged in litigation.  J. C. Bradshaw, the popular C. P.  R. conductor, is receiving congratulations all round on the increase  which came to his family circle on  Sunday in the shape of a new baby  boy.  A meeting of the grocers of the  city will be held in the Miners'  Union hall this evening at 8 o'clock  to consider matters dealing with  the trade.  CUP  CHALLENGER   PROVES  HER  SUPERIORITY.  Wind Conditions Were Favorable and  the Race Was Interesting  Throughout.  Southampton,May G.���The Shamrocks had a second spin this morning and the result supports the  view that the cup challenger is  vastly superior to the old bftat  when close hauled, but the older  boat can travel equally fast when  sailing before the wind. Afresh,  squally northeast wind promised  just the conditions captain Sycamore desired to supplement Saturday's light breeze trial. The Challenger set a club topsail and the  Shamrock I set a much larger club  topsail. They had the wind aft  down the water. The challenger  went out under mainsail and topsail only. The Shamrock I set a  jib at" the start. The challenger  ran out ahead, but the Shamrock I  catching a breeze soon began to  overhaul her. The challenger set a  jib and staysail, but though the.  breeze here was light and the water  smooth the Shamrock I held close  astern, losing nothing from Nettley  to Calsho. There they hauled into  the wind and reached along iu a  fresher breeze, the challenger leading by half a minute passing the  spit-light.  After clearing the spit light they  reached off for a few minutes, and  the challenger drew away from the  other fast and steadily. The boats  bore away for Cowes to take sail-  maker Ratzy on board. (, Both were  then ranged in. line, off the Squadron castle and the Erin gave the  signal to go. The challenger was  ^yell placed to windward, but apparently she desired to give the  Shamrock I the advantage of start,  - for the new boat -was deliberately  reached off across the stern of the  other boat, and took up a position  half a mile away on her lee quarter  with the intention, it seemed, of  trying whether she could make up  this on the stretch out to Lyming-  tou. Both sailed far enough off the  wind to keep their sails full, and  the challenger footed much faster  than Shamrock I. In the course of  half an hour she had drawn ahead  and was wide Under the lee bow of  the former challenger. She then  threw around and just failed to  cross ahead of the Shamrock.  Passing close astern of the old  Shamrock, the Sliamroek II was  luffed up and pointing wonderfully  high and sailing fast for a few minutes, she was able to pass the old  boat wide to weather and bear  =away=across4iei^bows^a=fact=Avhich=  gave ample proof that she was not  pushed to her full strength. Previously the Erin had gone ahead  aud stopped, forming a mark for  the boats to round. The challenger  might easily have been there first,  but she bore away and waited for  the Shamrock I to round the mark,  following up two minutes later.  All the way down the Shamrocks  had a good ten knot breeze and a  strong tide, with little sea. Under  these conditions the Shamrock I  was no match for the new challenger. Jib and topsail were sot as  the boats ran back to Cowes. All  the way back they had a strong  tide and a stern wind, whicli fell  lighter. The booms were well set  and the wind well astern. Going  free in this manner, the new yacht  was quite unable to catch Shamrock I, aud for five miles there was  no change in their positions. A  big reaching jib was tried on the  challenger, but the Shamrock I held  her distance, and at the finish of  the spin the gap between them was  practically tlie same as when they  started.  Little "Tatters" Tired of Life.  Nkw Youk, May (5.���Henry  Kreig, 8 years old, of west Thirty-  eighth street, and Thomas O'Neil,  0 years old, a playmate, left home  to go to Sunday school. When the  O'Neil boy returned alone the Kreig  parents asked for an explanation.  The O'Neil boy said that they had  gone to the river i\. the foot of west  Fourth and were playing on tlie  barges there when suddenly he  heard a splash; when he looked  around Kreig was nowhere to be  seen. The Kreig boy's father is  confident     that     the     boy     was  drowned. The father says that he  has had very little work during the  past winter; times were so hard that  he was not able to buy his son  suitable clothes, and lie was very  ragged. On several Sundays the  boy stayed away from Sunday  school because he said the other  little boys made remarks about his  rags, calling him "Tatters." This  time when he was told he would  have to go he left the house in  obedience to his father's command,  but it seems that he could not face  the comments of his companions.  The Jacksonville Holocaust.  Jacksonville, May 6.���S. A.  Cottery, who was employed at the  Gardner shipyards, almost lost his  ,lifei in trying to save the people  who rushed down Market street to  the river when the flames were at  their fiercest. He says he succeeded in getting twenty persons  across the river, but as many more  were either burned to death or  drowned at the pier.  Thousands of people worked  Saturday and last night. The firemen have not been relieved. The  debris is still burning, and streams  of water are being poured into the  flames and embers all the time  night and day. - It will be several  days before a car can pass into East  Bay street. Ten military companies are still on duty to prevent vandalism. Martial law probably will  be enforced at least another week.  The weather is much more comfortable today and the work of rehabilitation is being vigorously prose-0  cuted.  Jacksonville, May 6.���An estimate of the total loss by the fire  as given out by a former tax collector this afternoon is as follows:  Public buildings, $1,088,000; stores  on the north side of Bay street,  $495,000; stores on the south side  of Bay street, $880,000; stores on  Forsyth street, $40,000; stores' on  Main street, $309,000; residences,  promineut, $778,000; residences,  1500 small, $2,000,000; residents'  personal effects, $2,300,000; stocks  of goods-in large stores, $1,030,000;  stocks in 200 smaller stores, $550,-  000; street railways, $30,000; pavements, $100,000.  Asks for Restraint.  New York, May 6.���Vice chancellor Pitney gave a hearing in  Jersey City today on a rule to show  cause why the Amalgamated Copper Company should not2 be enjoined from absorbing the Boston  & Montana and Butte & Boston  Mining Companies of Montana.  Calvin Geer, who owns 104 shares  of the amalgamated company, asks  the court to restrain the amalgamated company from taking over  stock of the other companies upon  terms in excess of their true statute  and witheut submission to a stockholders' meeting.

SAD CONDITIONS IN CHINA  THE INDEMNITY QUESTION ONLY  SECONDARY.  One Million People, It Is Estimated,  Have Lost Their Lives Through  Violence or Starvation.   -  New York, May 0.���The latest  mail from China, says a Washington  special to the Tribune, haa  brought to  the state department  new proofs of the terrible arid perhaps irretrievable conditions which  exist under foreign  military ruling  in North  China, involving a situation not hitherto realized  even in  Washington and  utterly unappreciated in the United States generally.  The character of the iufoi ma-  tion which has now come into the  administration's possession is summarized in the following extracts  from a communication  from one of  the most trusted officials.in the ser- >  vice abroad and mailed from Pekin  a month ago.    The question of rais- -  ing the  indemnity, though one of  the most serious  for tlie Chinese  government, is not paramouut.   AU  the people who are  likely to know  declare that the Chinese can stand  no greater burden of taxation than  iri the past, so the question resolves  itself largely to reducing  the expense of collection, which in China  involves radical reforms.    Another  proposition for meeting the iudem- "  nity is  to  grant  lucrative mining  and industrial  concessions to for-,  eigners, but  that  means bartering  their  independence and  laying up  endless trouble for the Chinese, who  are quick to recognize the wrong.  If the whole horror of the murder and pillage done between Tien-  Tsin and Pekin comes to be understood in America and Europe the  sum of it is so'great as compared to  the number of Christians' who have  suffered at the hands of the Chinese, rightly or wrongly, the Chinese are held to be the injured  party. Lancers impaling little  children by the wayside in the  streets of Pekin are some of the  well authenticated horrors, and to  some foreign soldiers a dead Chinese  Christian is just as satisfactory as a  Boxer. They neither know nor  care for  such trifling  distinctions.  The   allies,   even if   they could  agree, could not set  np an administrative machinery of  their own for   -  the empire.   They must restore the '  power  to some native party, and  the quicker they do it the better  for China.    The Chinese  estimate  that   one  million  of   their  people  have   lost   their  lives   by  violent  deaths-or���from���starvation���about���  Pekin   and    Tien-Tsin    since    the  allies came.    Well informed people  do   not   regard   the    estimate    as  exaggerated.  The North China News of March  28 endeavoring to tell why such a  situation as the one alleged can  exist,says: Simply because Chinese  civil authority has been suppressed  and driven away and nothing substituted for it. The country between the sea and Pekin has been  devastated and the people have  been killed indiscriminately or driven out of their homes to become  bandits. We should have thought  that one of the first acts of the  foreign administration after Pekin  was relieved would have been to  strengthen the Chinese civil  authority and make it responsible  for the preservation of order. But  what magistrate can be expected to  remain at his post and exert himself to put down opposition to  foreigners when at any. moment a  foreign lieutenant with a handful  of troops may come to him and demand a sum of money on pain of  having his town or village burned  down in case of refusal.  Total Losses Against the Boers.  London, May 0.���The war office  today officially gives out the total  number of deaths iu the South  African war at 714 officers and  14,2(34 men. Four officers and 314  men have been invalided home and  subsequently died. Two thousand  four hundred and ninety-three non- .  commissioned officers and meu  have left the service unfit for duty.  Brussels, May 0.���It is reported  here that the Delagoa bay railway  has again been destroyed by Boer  forces under commandant Beyd.  ..  *  "���{-:  *fc  >::7.  .<���<���*  t rtf' ��� if'   -  If:-?

Someof  the church people object to Sunday  ball in  the  recreation grounds'be-  cause it proves a formidable rival  to church services.    The tramway  people also object because sinners  who enjoy Sunday ball on 'the'recreation grounds are not obliged to  patronize the tram cars.    It was  therefore not difficult for the two  forces to unite upon a common line  of action to prevent Sunday ball in  the  recreation grounds.   The matter was discussed at a meeting of  the St. Andrew's Society on Saturday evening, when stirring speeches  in favor of Sunday observance were  made    by   tramway    stockholders  present, and last evening the resolution was   launched   in   the  city  council which in  effect says, that,  ���to please   God   and the tramway  Company there   shall be no more  Sunday   ball    on    the    recreation  grounds, but that a suitable  place  for. such games can be found at the  foot   of   the   tramway  company's  track in Bogustown.  THE  SEAFARERS  The merchants of   Nelson should  get   together   and   talk   over   the  Thursday holiday wrinkle if they  do not wish to drive trade away  from the city.    Complaint against  the innovation is general.   It comes  from people who desire to buy and  from those who desire to sell.    Nelson's   merchants   do    considerable  business with outside points, and it  is a trade whicli will grow if no obstacles be placed in the way. What  -effect-will���ThursdayJs=closing-have=  upon  the  Kaslo  trade?*   Will  the  people of Kaslo time their visits to  Nelson stores so that they can buy  Nelson goods without being obliged  to lay over an extra day?   Will the  trade Nelson*��� merchants have built  up with Slocan lake points shape  itself to the new conditions? These  are matters which might be considered wick profit in connection with  the half holiday idea, and if there  is  to   be a half holiday  whether  Thursday is the best day for it.  A NEW BOOK  by Mary Giey  Morrison. Tlrs  book in a romance of a New  England const  town, charmingly told, tho description being lifelike while the  characters are dopicited with creative force;  that of the old general being particularly good.  It covers the period just previous to and during  the Civil War.  Frenchmen, Spaniards, Portuguese,* Greeks  and Mexicans are all mixed up in a carnival of  crime aud they do their villainies in a " Ha-Ha���  I'll have your blood " fashion, and tho table- is so  picturesque you can almost hear the foot-siamp-  ing, cursing, raving, shouting pirates.

London, May. 0.���There was unusual animation and attendance iu  the house of commons today, when  the last installment of the coal tax  resolution debate was opened by  sir Edward Grey, Liberal, who defined the measure as harsh and oppressive.  Lord Cranborne, the under secretary, informed Mr. Dillon, Nationalist, that the withdrawal of a portion of the troops "in the province  of Pe Chi Li was in contemplation,  and that so soon asc China should  comply with the more important  demands of the powers a larger reduction would occur.  Chamberlain, the colonial secretary,'' informed a questioner that  no gold had been  produced in the  ZEransvaal  stamps  started  stamps started today,  since- January_l,Jbnt_50.  May   4   and  100  Nothing was heard in the council  meeting last evening of the system  of special assessments for necessary  public works. It is now generally  admitted that the recommendation  from the public works committee is  an ill digested measure, which if it  is to receive further consideration  ���will require material amendment.  It is hinted, however, that the  recommendation will find its way  into the big safe, along with the  bylaw to regulate the mayor, and  in time be forgotten.  The Dunsmuir government received three- offers for the building  of the projected railway from the  Coast to Boundary, and is now  being held up by its supporters in  order that the subsidy may be secured by the company which promises the least return for it.  How the President Views It.  Nkw York, May 6.���A. L. Trues-  dale, president of the Delaware,  Lackawanna & Western railroad,  when asked yesterday about the  strike of the company's employees  at Scranton, said: "I understand  that all the men employed in the  car repairing, blacksmith and paint-  shops to the number of 1000, have  struck because we suspended an  employee. Their action was very  unjust, because the man grossly  disobeyed the company's rules in  quitting work and leaving the  grounds without a permit. I am  not informed whether the men will  go back tb work or not. If they  do not their places will probably be  quickly supplied. Their going out  will make no real hardships for us  for several weeks to come because  our rolling stock is just now in first-  class condition."  Fatally Wounded His Young Bride.  Beli.kont, Pennsylvania, May 0.  ���Jessetta King of Milllieim today  shot and fatally wounded his bride  of two months and when an officer  attempted to arrest him King shot  himself through the heart and died  almost instantly. Tlie couple quarreled considerably during their  brief married life. Mrs. King spent  most of the timo during the past  fortnight at her parents' home.  Yesterday she returned to her husband and another quarrel ensued,  when the young wife declared she  would leave him today for good.  This morning Mrs. King made  ready to depart and the husband,  unable to persuade her to remain,  secured his revolver and shot his  wife in the body. King then went  to his father's house, told him what  he had done and angrily declared  he would return and finish the job.  In the meantime Mrs. King managed to make her way to squire  Musser's office at Milllieim, and a  constable was sent to arrest King.  He met the angry husband on his  way to Millheim, aud when King  saw the officer he immediately shot  himself, dying iu about ten minutes.  Mrs. King is still alive, but the doctors say she cannot recover. Jealousy was the cause of the crime.  A Murder Mystery.  Chicago, May C���The Tribune  says the body of a man' found in  the slip at Morgan street and the  South Branch is believed by the  police to show a murder committed  during a strike last winter. The  man is thought to have been Bert  Shaw, formerly of Greene, New  York, and a member of Local Union  No. 7 of the Woodworkers. The  police think Shaw was concerned  iu the strike at Ganger's planing  mill and that he was murdered and  thrown into the river. There were  signs of violence on the body. A.  union card and a letter of recommendation from a manufacturing  company of Greene, New York, were  found in his clothing. The police  think the man was killed about the  time of the murder of the non-union  man Farrass in November, 1000.  They believe the man met death at  the hands of the same gang.  The Reception at Melbourne.  .. Melbourne, May 6.���The duke,  and duchess of Cornwall and  York  landed from the steamer  Ophir at  2 o'clock this afternoon.     The duke  and  duchess  were received at the  pier head by lord Hopetoun, governor-general and state and federate  ministers.    The party passed down  the quarter of a mile of carpeted  pier and entered carriages and proceeded   a   distance  of seven miles  through brilliantly decorated streets  bordered   with   almost continuous  stands filled to their utmost capacity.   The entire route  was lined  with crowds aud  decorations.    Opposite the town hall the procession  passed   beneath the   queen's arch.  Two thousand troops were  in  Hue,  and 80,000 visitors were in the city,  ,     .  '00^.00 .00 .0* .00 . 0&? .00 . ���-     ..

Ci.i3Vei.and, May G.���A special to  the Plaindealer from Columbus  says one of the largest deals in tlie  history of the coal financial world  is now ou and that all indications  are that it will be brought to a successful close before the end of  another week. The deal includes  all the leading mines in the Hocking valley coal fields and a  number in the Lunday creek district. The transfer has been engineered by agents ot J. P. Morgan.'  Hernandez addressed president McKinley on behalf of his own chief  magistrate, extending the latter's  congratulations and president McKinley paid a high tribute to the  president of the Mexican republic  aud charged the emissary to convey to his chief expressions of warm  regard and personal . esteem and  best wishes for the continued prosperity of our sister republic. The  president's speech was very happy,  aud was especially notable ou account of his injunction to the people not to be alarmed about "imperialism." There was, he said, no  imperialism except the imperial  power of tlie sovereign people of  United States. The governor of  Chihuahua also warmly welcomed  the president to the border. The  exercises in tlie plaza were preceded by a military parade. The  ladies of the cabinet crossed the  railway Rio Grande Juarez, where  they were tendered a breakfast by  Juan Ochoa, a prominent Mexican  banker. Mrs. McKinley did not attend the breakfast, but enjoyed a  short drive during the morning.  At noon the presidential party resumed its journey westward.  Hill Denies It.  New York, May C���James J.
