Burns Hits* for Half, tho^ Tight. and  Acts on the Defensive for ���  the Remainder.  While^awaiting the.-arrival of the  champions, the audience was entertained by several scraps of-minor  light. The Oklahoma,.. Kid, a* colored gent, had a three-round bout  with Dick Slug. The Kid slugged'  Dick, and was declared tbe better  man of the two. Billy Armstrong'  put on the gloves with Jimmy Ellis,  and in the second round .knocked  him* out. Wm. McBeath .and Ben  Chambers were the. next couple to  enter the ring,-and showed some  very pretty work.-���������'-��� *������  Shortly before 11 o'clock the  champions were announced. Both  men entered'. the ring in the pink  1 of condition, and from the plaudits_  with which they, were greeted it  was evident that they -had friends  amoug the spectators, who.w:'ere enthusiastic. Some delay was> experienced in arranging preliminaries  which accounted for the lateness of  the hour at which the start was  made. Burns was the, first to appear on the scene, accompanied by  his trainer. Five minutes later  Goff entered, supported by his  brother and* Billy Armstrong, and  promptly at 11 o'clock the gong  sounded and the champions went  through the formality of a friendly  shake. Dan Thomas acted as tjme  keeper and master of ceremonies  and Andy McAUan as referee.  There ��� was a big contingent over  from Rossland with whom Golf was  undoubtedly the favorite. Of the  light itself not much to be  said. - It was only a sparing contest  and not the'best at-that. Tlie lighting was chiefly done by -Goff,. who  left"the "rufg'after^tho' 20th round'  without a scratch. Burns was bloodstained and- apparently done up.  The fightwas declared a draw amid  tho yelling protests . of the spectators.     .'���'.,.,  The contest in -rounds was as fol-  '* ���lows:.'. "'A'. *; '  First rbund���After some sparring Golf -clinched, and Burns went  down. Golf feeling for the other  fellow's weak:points and lands a  'heavy blow on the breast.

Rossland, May 10.���Edgar Petch,  a lad of 17 years of age, met his  death in a dramatic manner this  afternoon. In company with another lad of about the same age he  w.mton a picture taking expedition.  : While sauntering along Sheep creek  .JL'^.t,cJti saw a projectipglog from'the  cliff sixty feet above.and giving his  kodak to McLean he said: "I'll  climb up there and have you-take  my picture hanging from that log."  Quickly he clambered up the cliff  and made his way out ou the log.  Then he put his arms around it and  hung pendant over the chasm; McLean suapped the kodak and then  lie saw Petch endeavoring to get  back on the log but he had not  strength enough to do so. Next he  saw him falling and turning in the  air as he fell and he landed in some  logs sixty feet from where he had  fallen. When McLean reached him  he found blood oozing from his  nose and ear. He was stone dead,  the top of his skull being crushed  in. Petch was a printer's apprentice on the Rossland Miner and  was a steady reliable young man  mueh=respectedr^=He-was=the=prin=  cipal supporter of a widowed  mother.  United States Gets Them.  Vancouver, May 10.���[Special to  The Tribune.]���Remarkable ; evidence was adduced from Chinese  witnesses at the Oriental commission this afternoon, Charley Yip  Yuen, general secretary of the  Chinese Reform Association, said  that since January 200 Chinese have  been smuggled through v to the  United States from Vancouver and  surrounding districts. There was  an average of 100 Chinese per  month now. A great many Chinamen come from the Orient to  Canada who had no intention of remaining iu this country, but simply  billed their way through here in  order that they might escape across  the boundary line.

NELSON WHOLESALE TRADE  BUSY WEEK IN EVERY BRANCH  OF   BUSINESS.  Largo   Orders   Coming   in  From  the  Lardeau Country and From  Boundary Points.  The week just closed has been a  busy one in the Nelson wholesale  trade, and indications are that business will increase in volume as the  season advances. Small fruits are  now coming in very freely and lire  meeting a ready market, while  standard goods are active. Travelers who have been over the,  Lardeau country in the interests of  the local wholesale houses, report a  decided improvement in business  and have had their appetites  whetted for greater exertions in  the future. That the district is  rich in minerals;must be admitted.  The. only thing that retarded  its 'development has been lack of  facilities for bringing the ores to  market. This want is now being  supplied by the letting of aeon-  tract to build a railway from Lardo  to Trout Lake, which will enable  several well developed; mining  properties to ship on a liberal scale  and give a great impetus to work.  People are flocking, into the new  Eldorado in anticipation of the  good times coming and merchants  are preparing for the rush; hence  their orders are on a more liberal  scale than heretofore, aud local  travelers are not slow to take advantage of the opportunity of doing  business and making new customers.  From-the Boundary country also  renewed activity is reported. The  smallpox scare has passed over, and  people are again settling down to  business. New smelters are being  spoken of, while those already existing are. increasing their capacity.  Then railway extension is a matter  bf certainty, which-gives- new-life  to trade.  Things are somewhat dead  throughout the Slocan, with the  exception of a few which  money-making mines are in operation. But there is a general feeling  of better things to come. Then  there is the fact that the unlimited  credit system has been closed down  upon. Business is business now���  not mere speculation, which makes  the retailers more cautious in their  movements and the wholesalers  more secure. Local trade is good,  and money is becoming more easy.  The California Wine Company  have not shipped as extensively this  week as last, but they have orders  on file which go to show that business is brisk. Points supplied during the week were Thompson's  Landin g,=West=Robson ,=Phoenix,  Grand Forks,Slocan City and Ymir.  J. Cholditch & Co., shipped to  Kaslo, Ymir, Sandon, Slocan City,  Moyie, Cranbrook, Rossland, Greenwood, New Denver and Trout Lake.  The Mattress Company have had  all they can do to till orders during  the the week. Two new furniture  stores opening up in town have  added considerably to their local  trade, but nevertheless they managed to ship to Trout Lake, Revelstoke, Trail and Kaslo.  The Nelson Saw and Planing Mill  Company have sent 'out since Monday last large consignments of lumber to Kaslo, Grand Forks, Waneta  and other points. Local demand  slow. The mill has been closed  down pending the arrival of. some  large booms of logs, which are  every day expected to tie up here.  The Hudson's Bay Company have  filled orders ��� for groceries, liquors,  dry goods, boots and shoes, etc.,  from Lardo, Thompson's Landing,  Salmo, Park Siding, Kaslo, Kitchener, Slocan City, Cranbrook, Pilot  Bay, Goat Creek, Ainsworth and  Waneta. They have not had a mau  on the road for some time past.  E. Ferguson & Co. have been busy  during the past week shipping to  Greenwood, Phoenix, Eholt, Columbia, Grand Forks, Ymir, Waneta,  New Denver, Rossland, Trail and  Kaslo. Their representative has  just returned from a trip through  the Boundary with his order book  well filled.  Teetzel & Co. have forwarded assayers' supplies to Granite, Greenwood, Rossland, Lemon Creek, Erie,  Kimberley and Slocan. This is tlie  only house in the Kootenays handling these goods wholesale.  Macdonald & Co. have had a large  shipping list for the1 week, including Kaslo, Erie, Kitchener, Fire  Valley, Nedridge, Slocan Junction,  Nakusp, Creston, Slocan City. Eholt,  Burton City, Ymir, New Denver,  Silverton, Granite and Rock Creek.  J. Y. Griffin & Co. are making a  specialty of'fruits,-which in addition to their other business, keeps  them very busy. Their shipping  points since Monday.lasn were Rossland, Slocan Pernio, Trail, Cranbrook, Pilot Bay,. Kaslo, Sandon,  Revelstoke, Silverton, Fort Steele,  Phoenix, Moyie, Whitewater, Sandon, Ymir. Ainsworth j Eholt, Erie,  Grand Forks, Kimberley, r Trout  Lake, Columbia, Lardo, Nakusp,  Anaconda, Michel,' Arrowhead,  Pincher, New Denver and Fort MeLeod.

A letter from Percy Smitzer, who  left Nelson for South Africa among  the first batch* of volunteers, was  received the other dayi by a friend.  It is dated from Elaudsfontein.  Percy, as already announced, has  =thrown=down=his=gun=and=taken=to  railroading. He thinks the Boers  are likely to prolong hostilities for  a year or two longer, as- their supply of provisions and ammunition  appears inexhaustibls. He then goes  on to say: "There are a number of  South Africa Constabulary coming  through here from the old country.  They are a smart looking lot of men  only they want a lot Of licking into  .shape, as they aro composed of all  ��� classes, and you know how the Eug-  lish are on the subject of white  chokers, some uf them can't see  they are no better than their mates  ��� till   after   they  have   danced  the  : goosestep for a few months, and get  it into their chuckle-headed brains  that its not a six inch collar but  common sense that makes the man  some use in the field. But they are  all young fellows and the making of  a smart lot of mounted police."  Percy desires to be remembered to  all his friends in Nelsou.  Mining Records..  The following are the mining  transactions recorded yesterday:  Certificates to R. J. Elliott on the  Britisher and Red Bird, to John  McAlmon on the Bristol, and to E.  T. Wheelden on the Sweeden.

ELECTED  THEIR   OFFICERS  AT THE METHODIST CONFERENCE  YESTERDAY.  Rev.   W.   H.   Barraclougb,   B. A.,   of  ,���   Vancouver for  President  ���The Proceedings.  From 9 to 9:30 yesterday morning  Rev. Thomas Crosby led a conference prayer meeting, and at 9:30  the central superintendent, , Rev.  Dr. Carman, called the conference  to order in general sesrion. In his  address to the conference Rev. Dr.  Carman paid an excellent, tribute  to,the memory of the late queen Victoria. The action of the Nelson city  council respecting Sabbath observance was endorsed and the duty of  the church regarding the moral  , sentimentof the province was urged  upon the ministers, as well as their  duty as to individual reform.  Congratulations were offered on the  progress of church work. The  twentieth century fund was also referred to by the speaker, the fact  "the church had raised more than its  stated amount of one million dollars  was made a matter of thanks to  God. - In ringing sentences Dr. Carman finished his address with a  magnificent defence of Methodist  doctrine and policy.  The roll was then called, aud  thirty-six ministers and 21 laymen  answered to their names.  The election for president was the  first order of business, and on the  third ballot Rev. W. II. Barra-  clough, B. A., of Victoria Centennial  church, was elected. Rev:t,J. A.  Wood of Kaslo was in much favor  and it looked at one time as though  he would be the choice of the conference. On the fourth ballot Rev.  John Robson of Princess street,  Vancouver, was elected to the office  of secretary. Short speeches, were  jjnade byboth-president and secre-  ' tar y-elect.  A nomination committee was appointed consisting of Revs. E. S.  Rowe, E. E. Scott, J. F. Setts, S. J.  Thompson and T. Crosby and Bro.  3.'F. Casselman.  The conference prayer meeting  occupied the attention of the delegates until noon, and then the  much-talked, of stationing committee's first draft was presented,  and printed copies handed to all  members of the conference. The  draft as submitted leaves several  stations unfilled, but those that are  'filled follow:  ' VICTORIA  DISTRICT.  Victoria Metropolitan,  Elliott S.  Rowe;   John P.

The secretary then  read the minutes*of the conference  special committee for the information of the conference.  Rev. A. M. Sanford, B. A., of  Sandon, reported on the state of  Sandon church relief fund. Five  hundred dollars had been received  from ' the missionary society and  $059.95 from the various circuits  and missions of the Methodist  church, making a total of $1159.95.  It will be remembered that ou May  4th, 1900, the Methodist church in  Sandon suffered in the general conflagration and this relief fund was  instituted to aid the Methodists  there to regain their property. A  lot in the center of the town has  been secured and- a fine church  building erected. A furnished  house has also been secured for a  parsonage, and the work is thus  placed on a good footing.  The committees of tlie conference  were then appointed. Then followed the report of memorials sent up  to the conference from the various  districts. When ��� it was reported  that no deaths had occurred in the  ranks of the ministry,'the conference sang "Praise God from whom  all blessings flow." "Touching reference were made to brothers John  Jessop and; Alexander Piers, who  died during,th'e'past year,- and who  had for many years been lay mem-'  ber of the British Columbia conference. Brother Jessop was one of  .the first members of the Metropolitan church. Victoria, which church  he served zealously and faithfully,  and to whose success he largely  contributed. Brother Piers, formerly of Chilliwack, but latterly of  New Westminster, was for many  years a local preacher. and served  the church in various other capacities with ardor and zeal.  Various committees reported,  after which the conference session  adjourned, and the ministerial session was called.  IV.  STOCK MARKET IS EASIER  NORTHERN PACIFIC RESUMES ITS  NORMAL CONDITION.  Interesting Stories of Some Lucky Speculators in Railroad Securities���Notes.  Evening Session.  In the evening a most profitable  and interesting service was held.  After a^few explanatory remarks  by the president regarding the  course of probationers for the ministry of the Methodist church, the  venerable Rev. Chadner moved the  reception of Samuel J. Green into  full connection in the ministry of  the Methodist church. The motion  was seconded by Rev. S. J. Thompson, and the president welcomed  brother Green to the ministry.  An able and eloquent sermon  from Romans viii, 5, was preached  by Rev. A. Carman, D. D., the general superintendent, and the after  service was led by Rev. E. E. Scott.  F. Smith rendered the solo,  "Promise of Life" very acceptably.  Rev.W. H. Ban aclough, the president-elect of the conference, is a  comparatively young man,and very  popular w;ith his fellow ministers  and the members of his church.  Matinee Today.

Chicago, May 10.���The Tribune  says: Chicago banks shipped twenty  millions of currency to New York-  last night as a result of the fall in  stocks.      Urgent demands for mar-,  gins had been sent from New York  and much of the money was for thin  purpose.   Some of it was the result,  of investment for buying stocks and  bonds by Chicago men  yesterday.,  It was a day of unprecedented excitement iu Chicago brokers' offices.  Thousands of small accounts wero  sold out, and some  large  accounts  suffered a like fall.  Every body who  could not produce promptly all the  margin  demanded  was   ruthles-Jy  closed out.     Chicago bauks occasionally   make   shipments of   currency to  New York,  but  it is rare  for such a demand to develop as it  yesterday.  Nkw York, May 10.��� Sentiment  in the financial world was much reassured   today by   the  announce- '  ment   made   last, night   that   the  shorts   iu   Northern   Pacific   were,  to be settled at 150, thereby ending i  the corner in the stock.    Brokerage  offices were filled-with  speculators  at an early hour and to some ot the  largest houses admission was to  be  had only by tick'et.    The New York  opening interest  centered  in Lou-'  don   quotations   and   when   these  came much higher than yesterday's  New York   close,  the'bad   feeling'  became stronger and the New York  opening prices were  awaited .with  confidence in marked  contrast' tothe complete   demoralization that'  -prevailed^on every-hand- yesterday,  morning.    A dispatch was'reeeivi'ii  from London  saying  that  at   1:45  o'clock  in  that city  all Ameiicau  securities   were   higher,   with   Sc. .  Piiul  cpioted  at a price equal to a  twenty point advance.     There vviis;  another clearing of the financial atmosphere when it  was  announced  that an order obtained in the  sup-,  reme court  directing  certain  persons to show cause why they should  not be  restrained  from   trading iu'  Northern   Pacific    would   not    bo  served, the agreement to  settle ac  150 having been  accepted as  satisfactory.  Most of the buying this morning  was believed tobe for investment  account,-as commission houses deprecated trading  on margins for tho  present The-transactions_ou_tho���  exchange continued quiet, but with  a firm undertone, up to 11:30 and  the reassuring news was given out  that J. P. Morgan & Co. would renew at 0 per cent all loans made by  them yesterday. A. A. Ilousinan  <fc Co. announced that they would  renew all of yesterday's loans aud  would lend a million additional ac  0 per cent. At 11:15 the entire li��c  was strong. Northern Pacific sold  on the exchange at 100, and at tlm  same time Kuhn, Loeb & Co. weio  settling at 150.  The Times says: Richard W.  Miles of Meriden, Conn., was one  of the few happy speculators iu  the transactions in Wall street  yesterday. Some time ago on the ,  advice of a friend he bought 100:  shares of Northern Pacific at 81 and  all through the excitement of the,,  last few days Mr. Miles closely  watched the course of the market.,,.  He offered to sell once at less than ,  350 and was laughed at; but when  the uproar was at its height somu  broker, who had learned of his possession, paid $700 a share for it and  Mr. Miles cleared more than $00,000.  Another lucky man was Peter McQueen of Schenectady, who had 100  shares .for which he paid $9500-  He deposited these with a loan and  trust compauy. A few days ago  Mr. McQueen sustained an injury ia  a railroad accident iu Michigau and  was taken to a private hospital. On  Tuesday and Wednesday he was  bombarded with telegrams from the,  trust company asking permission to  loan the stock over night. Mr. McQueen wearied of these and early  in the day telegraphed: "Sell tbo  stock outright."

"Maxwell and tb.6 mint" is one  of the slogans of the past. Ottawa  is to have the mint, and Vancouver  is quite prepared to let the tail go  with the hide.  The estimated expenditures of  the city of Victoria for the current  year are( returned at $440,580.73.  Of this sum no less than $132,554.73  is required to meet interest aud  sinking fund charges on the municipal debt.  If, those Vancouver juries, that  . have been piling up verdicts against  the city of Victoria in the Point  Ellice bridge cases, only knew that  for every dollar received by claimants under them, another dollar  went into the pockets of the lawyers, it is not likely the claimants  would have fared so well.  J. D. Taylor and Robert Kennedy are having a tug of .war in  New Westminster for possession of  the Columbian newspaper, and as  J. D. never lets go his hold it looks'  bad for Kennedy. Kennedy scored  first by putting a new lock on the  officedoor, but Taylor at once evened  up with a warrant for Kennedy's  arrest, restraining injunctions, and  other legal things too numerous to  mention.

G. Macdonald, the Vancouver  - lawyer, is  now receiving his preliminary hearing in  Victoria  upon  the   charge    of    misappropriating  $240 in connection with one of the  -Eoint Ellice bridge cases. ^Probably,  i-lr  the most interesting matter brought  out during the first day of the examination was the suggestion of  one of the Point Ellice bridge claimants that fifty per cent of the  award was to go to the lawyers.  ��  * '--'\  Municipal administration is virtually at a standstill iri Ottawa.  The council has gone to the limit of  its legal expenditure for the time,  aud money which should have beeu  set aside for school maintenance has  been swallowed up in payments of  the city's overdraft. Mayor Morris  advised retrenchment with the beginning of the year, but [tlie council  - snubbed him, and now he refuses to  issue auy more municipal checks  until the council can secure some  money to draw against.  The passage of the Dunsmuir  government's railway bill puts  British Columbia in the front rank  of the Canadian provinces in the  matter of railway legislation. It  marks ��� the advance which public  sentiment has been making for the  past ten years upon the railway  question, and comes as close to government ownership as present conditions will admit. It is progressive legislation, aud is on the statute book to stay. This, indeed, may  be considered its most important  characteristic.

Bice Murder Case.  New    York, , May   10.���Robert  Moore,  counsel  for  A. T. Patrick,  David Short and Morris Meyers, appeared before judge  Foster in the  court of general sessions  today to  argue the demurrers  made by him  against the indictments filed against  the. tln*ee   men   charging Patrick  with murder and Short and Meyers  with  perjury   and   forgery.     Mr.  Moore on the  forgery indictment  argued   that   the   defendants   are  chai'ged with  uttering  certain papers, but the indictment fails to set  forth  that the papers in question  were forgeries.    In relation to the  indictment charging perjuryagaiust  Short and Meyers, Mr. Moore argued  that   although   they   might   have  sworn to such papers, the question  of whether they did  or not is not  material   t.o  the  issue of  murder.  They are alleged to have sworn to  the Patrick will, which is a base for  the murder. charge.    Mr. Moore declared  that the indictment charg-  nng=Patrick=with=niurdering=Rice=  reads that the deceased "became  dispirited   and   sick   in  body and  from  such sickness he died."   He  argued that the   indictment does  not state that the deceased died  from poisoning.    He asked that all  indictments be dismissed as defective documents.   Judge Foster gave  assistant district attorney Garvin  until  Monday  to answer  the   demurrer.      '  The London Market.  London, May 10.���-A more reassured feeling was evident in the  stock exchange as tho day wore on  and there were no scenes of excitement. Speyer brothers and the  Morgans reported considerable  New York buying with London  realizations, which afterwards were  mingled with London and continental buying. J. P. Morgan, jr.,  said to a representative of the  Associated Press: ''The situation  looks a little better. I would not  be surprised if the buying continued, though no one can tell what  tomorrow will bring these days."  Speyer brothers attributed what  realizations there were to the  British dealers' anxiety to get clear  before Monday, which is settling  day, and as tomorrow is a holiday  in New York they are anxious to  do all they can today.  Americans  Maintain  Their Foothold.  Pekin, May 10.���The Americans  have evacuated tlie districts under  their control with the exception of  the forbidden city, which they will  continue to occupy in spite of  foreign objections unless orders to  the contrary shall be received from  Washington.

Gilker, Proprietor  .The criminal assizes concluded  yesterday afternoon iu Nelson before Mr. justice Drake, when.Des  Riviers, charged with the murder  of Harry Rowand at Denero, near  Greenwood, was acquitted.  Three witnesses Avere called for  the prosecution and corroborated  the evidence as appearing iu yesterday's Tribune. Then the prisoner was piit in the witness box,  and examined by his lordship. He  told a very clear story. He stated  that he had never met Rowand  until the, evening of the Kith of  Pebruarj', when he was introduced  to him by Torn Jones. Both Jones  aud his friend were badly intoxicated, and had a bottle of ^whisky  with them. As soon . as this was  exhausted, Jones lay down ou the  bed and fell asleep. Rowand suggested that he should go out for  more whisky, and Des Rivieres  tried to dissuade him, but without  avail. While Rowand was out,  prisoner procceeded to whittle wood  for kindling, and while thus engaged Rowaud returned more drunk  than before, and in a very quarrelsome mood.    .  He at once proceeded to abuse  and threaten prisoner, and then assaulted him. Iu the struggle that  ensued the knife was used in self  defence, a,nd. with fatal results, as  transpired. Rowand was a big  heavy man, and prisoner could not  withstand hia assaults. He did not  ineau to inflict a fatal blow, but it  \yas necessary that he should du-  fend himself iu order to save his  own life.  Mr. C Davis', K.C. addressed the  jury for the defence, pointing out  that no evidence had been advanced to show'that the accused had  any. intention of killing his assailant, or thafc he.eould have had any  motive except that of -self-defence.  On the. other hand,-, it had been  shown that Des Rivieres, although  subjected to considerable annoyance  because of his anti-Boer proclivities;  had shown .wonderful coolness of  temper and discretion. The man  had never got into a row or quarrel  with,anyone although on several  occasions subjected to great provocation. Had; he not used his knife  in selfrdefence on the 15th of February last he would not be alive  today.  W. A. Macdonald, K. C, replied  on the part of the prosecution, and  iu so doing took occasion to allude  to the action of a local paper in setting'forth incorrect details of the  case which, if credited, were calcu-,  lated to prejudice the minds of the  jury. Should such a thing occur  again he would certainly call attention to the matter in different form.  He"then proceeded to review the  evidence and caution the jury that  if "there was a doubt on their minds-  ^as-to-the-guilfcof-Hjhe-prisoner-they^  should give, the prisoner the benefit  of that doubt. '.     ���  Mr. justice Drake summed up the  evidence briefly, his charge being  clearly in favor of the prisoner.  His lordship also alluded to the  danger of newspapers dealing with  cases of this sort before the court  was called upon to, decide. Such  newspaper articles as those alluded  to were calculated to do a great  deal of harm. He hoped this would  not occur again., The case was presented by his lordship iii the usual  fashion, and the jury, after an absence of ten minutes, returned a  verdict of "not guilty," and the  prisoner was discharged.".  est will be held in the opera house  when Rev. E. S. Rowe of Victoria  will" deliver an address on "The  -Church and the Social Problem."  Mr. Rowe's fame as a preacher,'  coupled with, .the interest in his  theme, is sure to attract a large,  audience.' The singing at this service will be led by the Emerald  duet.  The pulpit of the Baptist church  will be filled tomorrow by -members,  of the Methodist conference; Rev.  It. B. Laidley preaching in the  morning and;Rcv. TV. W; Baer in  the evening.   ��� ,  The Humane Society's Medal.  Very many- of those who" witnessed the boating accident on  Thursday evening,. are thinking  that something should be done to  secure the Humane Society's medal  for captain Fraser of the Kokanee.  Were it not; for the prompt and  heroic action , of the : captain it is  al most certain, that ^ the accident  would have ., proved fatal. When'  Mills was taken out lof; the water he  was nearly dead, and his companion  was so weajjithathe could'put forward no,furtheti effort to save ihim.
