 ���'rmnrin'..r-i��  Mineral Produotioq of British Columbia in 1900  $16,407,645  Mineral Production of Kooteriay Iq 1800  $10,562,032  NINTH YEAR  NELSON, B.C., MONDAY MOANING, MAY 13,  1901  PRICE FIVE CENTS  LORD SALISBURY'S RETURN  MUCH    IMPROVED    IN    HEALTH  AND  SPIRITS.  ; I. N. Ford's Breezy Correspondence on  General European Topics  of Interest.  P*  New York, May 12.���In a special  cable* dispatch  to  the   New  York  Tribune from  London I.  N.  Ford  says:    Lord   Salisbury   has  disappointed  every  prophet  of evil by  returning  to London in  improved  health   and   spirits.      The  radical  marplots now insist that he  is dissatisfied with tlie action of his own  colleagues,   and   that   he   is   bent  upon   making   his   authority  felt.  They do not explain why  he is discontented. The     ministry     is  stronger  than it  was.    The.reduction of the majority to twelve last  night was an accident  due to  bad  whipping.        Sir    Michael    Hicks-  Beach is holding his ground well on  linancial questions and the country  is riot in revolt against the budget.  The contest  in the Sall'i ou-Wal-  den division may turn ou the sugar  tax, but tlie Conservatives ought to  do   even  better  there 'than in the  Monmouth   boroughs   on   the: coal  tax.      The   education   bill will be  pressed to a second  reading  after  Whitsuntide,  and  sandwiched between the remaining stages of financial legislation  it will probably be  passed before grouse  time.    It is a  good skeleton  measure, which  can  be  filled  out  by  future ministers  aud will enable the  government to  claim credit for doing something in  addition to financing the war.   The  scheme of military  reorganization  is weak  aud inadequate,  but lord  Salisbury has no  other  ground for  complaint.     He will speak Monday  nighf at the non-confornnsl dinner  with the duke-of-'Deyonshire.    The  Liberals   may' havo vpr'omoted the  prime minister's . convalescing from  their   inaptitude.      They  were  in  good fighting form.at  tho  opening  of the session,- but could  not resist  the allurement of  faction warfare.  As soon as  sir Henry Fowler is put  up to move a vote of censure, many  radicals declare that they will walk  out of tlie house in order to punish  him for condemning  the  waste of  time involved in the abuse of  privileges of the house.  No more ^insidious form of  obstruction has ever been devised  than the practice of asking four  hundred questions weekly and  thereby exhausting time required  for the real business of the session.  Ic is the favorite recreation of the  opposition side, lind sir Henry  Fowler is denounced for spoiling  ' the sport. Liberal reunion has  =nevetwseemed=moi'e^hopeless.==jrhei  only strong bond which keeps the  factions together is hatred of Mr.  Chamberlain. When he remains in  the background these factions  divide and scatter like Boer guerrillas; wheu he comes to tho front,  as he has done in a powerful speech  at Birmingham, he concentrates  their fire and the opposition is  united. The session of the National  Liberal Federation at Bradford  next week, at which sir Henry  Campbell-Bannerman will be a conspicuous iigure, may invigorate the  demoralized party.  Foreign Affairs.  Foreign affairs are enlivened by  no new features. There are sensational reports of a panic in the  sultan's palace at Constantinople,  but there is no authentic information. The sultan, instead of being  daugerouslyill aud in dread of being  poisoned, is probably anxious to  borrow money aud his ministers are  tightening the screws of the  customs service.  The collective guarantee of the  Chinese indemnity loan still hangs  fire. The international forces are  gradually retiriug from Pekin, the  Japanese alone remaiuing in full  strength and the capital is reverting to Chinese control.  Tlie German emperor seems bent  on forcing a financial settlement  which will enable him to present a  satisfactory balance sheet of the  expenses of the expedition, aud  this will be impracticable if the  indemnity be reduced to a level  where interest can be paid upon it.  The Russian government, meanwhile, is covering its military  expenses in China by arranging  with the Rothschilds for a loan in  Paris, which may draw gold from  London. Financiers here are hoping that the setback of speculation  on Wall street will avert the danger of gold shipments from London  to America. The continuance of  excitement on the stock exchange  there would have increased the  demand for money, and American  bankers would not have left balances abroad.  Gold shipments to America' are  dreaded when Russia is borrowing  heavily in Paris and money is dear  in Berlin.  Financial.  The best informed financiers here  do not take a pessimistic view of  the financial situation in America  even wheu consols 'have been sent  down and all classes of securities  depressed by the Stock Exchange  flurry. They consider that the  American market will be left in  a more healthy condition by the  shaking up caused by the collapse  of weak and irrational speculation  and look for a quick recovery. -The  action of the New York banks under  the leadership of Mr. Tappen is  condemned by the financial journals  as highly sagacious. The truth is  discerned that, wild as may be the  orgies of reckless speculation, conservative forces are brought to  bear upon the situation Avhenever  the conditions are critical and the  evil effects of financial collapse are  minimized.  Halfpenny journalism revels in  sensationalism when J. Pierpont  Morgan purchases fleets, but the  sober second thought iri-.the street  whenever there is a financial crisis  is that the bankers of the great  capitalists of the world stand together for. mutual promotion, and  that the conservatism of millions of  money becomes a safeguard against  the far-reaching effects of disaster.  Apart froin the Wall street maelstrom, everything American passes  without observation here. Some  attempts have been made to interpret president McKinley's aspirations for reciprocity as an approach  to a large measure of free trade,  but English readers are not deceived by vacuous sophistry about  'the champion of American protect  tion."-    Sporting Matters.  There are columns of detailed  description in the sporting journals  of the inconclusive tests of the two  Shamrocks on the Solent, but the  conclusions of experts may be  accepted with reserve. Mr. Fife's  boat is not in the same trim as she  was in the American races. Since  her leugth on the lead water line is  nearly three feet greater, her  weights have been considerably  altered. How much faster she is  than she was in New York no expert can estimate, and since the  main course is not the same all calculations respecting the superiority  of Mr. Watson's boat to the Columbia are illusive. .Sporting men are  convinced that the second Sham-  rockis-a better_boat ineveryLpoint,  of sailing but the general public  takes a languid interest in the cup  races.  There is a good deal of comment  in the sporting press on the probable selections for the athletic team-  for tlie contests in September with  Harvard and Yale. Both Oxford,  aud Cambridge are considered weak  in hurdling and sprinting.  The Canal.  The Spectator is the only journal  which takes any interest iu the revision of the Clayton-Bulwer treaty.  Its remarkable article today urging  that England should allow the  United States to conduct and manage any canal under conditions  Americans prefer is the friendliest  overture ever made to America;  Unfortunately, there is no prospect that lord Lansdowne will be  influenced in the slightest degree  by the lucid common sense of that  article.          ���  A Two-Tailed Comet.  Lima, Peru, May 12.���The comet  which was first seen from South  America a fortnight ago and which  has been invisible from here for the  last three nights, reappeared last  night. It apparently has two tails,  one of which is now longer than  when it was first seen.  SOCIAL EVENTS IN LONDON  AN ARISTOCRATIC WEDDING AT  ST. PAUL'S.  An Automobile Tour.  Utica, N. Y., May 12.���Mr. and  Mrs. Robert Shaw ot Chicago  passed through this city yesterday  on an automobile tour from New  York to Chicago. Mr. Shaw wagered $2000 that he could make tlie  trip in 144 hours running time, and  hopes to make it in 120 hours, or  10 days of 12 hours each.  Lord   Roberts   Slow   in Reorganizing  the Army���No   Change   in  Drill or Tactics.  ��� London, May 12.���The chief social event yesteiniay was the wedding of sir Arthur MacKenzie and  Miss Eva Ward at St. Paul's,  Kuightsbridge, with a reception at  lady Ward's in Cadogan Gardens.  The bride's empire gown was  chiefly remarkable for deep flounces  of old Brussels lace. The train was  carried by two boys in white, with  lace ruffles. Seven bridesmaids in  white sat veiled with pale blue  chiffon, wore white hats wreathed  with forget-me-nots and carried  quaint.baskets filled with the same  flowers.  The opera will be the last hope  of society, which is in despair over  the dull season. All the boxes are  taken, Mr. Astor, Mr. Bradley Martin and Mr. J. Pierpont Mor^rri being the most prominent American  subscribers.  The mystery enveloping the  authorship of the article on queen  Victoria in the Quarterly Review  still piques public curiosity. It has  been attributed to lord Salisbury.  The excitement over the seizure  of Mr. O'Brien's Irish paper has  subsided. The inference generally  drawn that the king was consulted  before police action was taken may  have been incorrect. Some of Mr.  Wyndham's intimate friends assert  that the seizure was made entirely  on his initiative aud that the king  knew nothing about it.  Lord Roberts returned toEngland  with the reputation  of being the  only general capable  pf reorganizing the British army arid turning  the   lessons   of   South   Africa   to  practical   account.     Military   men  assert that while he has been in the  war   office  several    months, there  have been no changes in drill and  tactics. The drill season has opened,  but the troops are drilled  precisely  as they were before the Boers gave  the British a series of object lessons  in the resources of defensive and  guerilla   warfare.     The  fact that  Mr.     Broderick's     reorganization  scheme has not yet received the  approval   of   parliament does not  explain the slowness  of the headquarters staff in  adapting old time  systems of training to new conditions.        ____________  CONFERENCE   SERVICES.  Yesterday was a field day for  Nelson Methodists. The services  opened with a love   feasts in  the  Methodist church led by Rev. C,  Ladner. This meetiug, peculiar to  the denomination, was followed by  communion, the president of the  conference, Rev. W. H. Barraclough,  administering the sacrament, assisted by Revs. R. Whittington, T.  Crosby and Dr. Carman.  At 11 a.m. the opera house was  well filled to hear Rev. R. Whittington preach. On the platform  with him were the general superintendent, Dr. Carman; the president of the conference, Rev. W. H.  Barraclough, and Rev. J. II. White.  The Sunday school held an open  session at 2:80 p.m., at which addresses were delivered by Rev. J. P.  Hicks, chaplain to the Methodists  in H. M. navy at Esquimalt, and  Rev. J. P. Westman of Vernon.  The announcement that Rev.  Elliot S. Rowe of Victoria would  deliver an address in the opera  house at 3:45 p.m. on the subject  "The Church and the Social  Problem" drew a large audience.  Mr. Rowe sketched tlie social  problems of the day and called  attention to the duty of the church  in its relation to these problems.  He was frequently applauded. The  song service was led by Messrs.  Smith and Miller, the Emerald  duet.  At 7:30 the opera house was  crowded to overflowing to hear Dr.  Carman, the venerable general  superintendent of the church.  A Humane Presentation.  As announced iu The Trihune  the other morning, a movement is  on foot to secure for captain Fraser,  of the Kokanee, the Humane Society's medal for saving the lives of  two men who met with a boating  accident the other day. Were it  not for the fact that the captain  cast the hawser ashore and went to  the rescue^ there is little doubt that  both the, canoeists would have lost  their lives. On Saturday morning  the crew of the steanier presented  their captain with a rubber medal,  assuring him that the^ material had  been judiciously selected���that if  he got the swollen head the medal  would stretch. Captain Fraser fittingly acknowledged the thought-  fulness of his crew, and in eloquent  terms assured them that the. medal  would be preserved ,'a's one of the  most valuable treasures in his collection. He had to confess that the  "metal" was new to liim, and,insinuated that the enthusiastic donors  must be rubber-necks. The joke  was a good one on the captain.  Mining Records.  The following are' the mining  transactions recorded Saturday:  Certificates of work; to E. Wheel-  den on the Sweden; tp ,J. A. McRae-  on the Mayflower; to -Bam Alson on  the Double Standard; to' William  McGuiness on the Maid of Erin and  the Bessie, and to John Lock and  R. S. Lennie ou the Red Rock.  William Coldbeek transfers his  interest in the Bessie M. to William  McGuiness. The property is situate on Kootenay river opposite the  Poormau. Andrew E. Croswell  transfers his interest in the Ber-  nice to John Johnson in consideration of $750, the claini being on  Morning mountain.  Will Reduce Its Output.  In order to strengthen its position  aud facilitate the future working  of the mine, the management of  the Athabasca has decided to curtail for two or three months the  ore production, and^push on development work. This course luxs  been rendered advisable from the  fact that the shortness of water  during the,past foiu' mouths has  rendered development- impossible.  Advantage of this, temporary halt  in working arrangements will be  taken to work up the, accumulated  tailings in .the cyanide plant.  '  JAPAN STILLDISTRUSTFUL  JIM HILL IS LACHRYMOSE  SHEDS TEARS OVER THE LOSSES  OF  OTHERS.  Denies Being in Any Way Responsible  for the Recent Upheaval  in Stocks.  RUSSIA'S POLICY IS NOT TO  HER  LIKING.  The Mikado Wants Korea as a Place  of Settlement for His Teem-   -  ing Millions.  Yokohama, April 25.���Since the;  back down of Russia by which she  has lost immensely in her prestige  in the Orient, matters have resumed  their normal course, although Japan's distrust of the northern power  still remains in as full force as ever  =and=the=nation^does^not=in-the=least  relax its vigilance in watching  every movement of the Muscovite.  None save those who have long resided in Japan can form any conception of the strength of the national sentiment regarding Korea.  The people have been taught for  centuries that the destinies of the,  two countries are indissblubly united, and the conviction of this is not  only ineradicable, but has become  part and parcel of the patriotic enthusiasm of the nation's life. Moreover, the tide of emigration has followed in large volume to the peninsula, which has beeu recognized as  the only field iu view of the growing restrictions upon- the influx of  Asiatics in the west.  Japan now has a population of  forty millions upon a surface less  than that of the Atlantic states of  America aud it being a mass of  mountains only one-twelfth of the  soil is arable. Korea, therefore, becomes an absolute necessity in the  near future as a field for emigration.  From the fact that its possession  by Russia would be recognized as a  moral menace to the island empire,  it may be readily imagined that  the nation's patience is liable at  any moiiient to be exhausted by  Russia's diplomatic policy. The  official census of foreigners in this  department madejlast month shows  a very large increase in the American population, as also in the  German contingent, plainly indicating that the British preponderance in the foreign business  of the country will soon become a  thing of the past.  It is generally a myf-.tery to a  man just how he comes to propose. I  New York, May 12.���The Commercial Advertiser prints the following interview with James J.  Hill:  ��� "Mr. Hill, are the troubles be-  tween the Northern Pacific and the  Union Pacific settled?" asked the  reporter.  "There is no -question of any  trouble now. I never myself had  any doubt that at the end we  should come out all right. And the  trouble was not foisted on the public by us. I did not speculate myself in a single share, and the shares  of the Great Northern and of the  Northern Pacific which I have today I shall Seep if I can until doomsday. The troubles which have been  caused by this dispute, as the papers called it, have been fomented by  the papers themselves. When we  who are concerned can get together  and talk matters over the difricul-  ties'will not be so great as they ap-  piear. They will not be impossible  of settlement. But look at the  ruin that has been done."  Mi'. Hill paused and turned, half  around. When he turned back  there were tears - in his eyes. "I  have received lots of letters," he  said, "from friends of mine, men  and women, who aie not rich���  who are comparatively'poor. They  knew that I was interested personally and largely in my properties,  and they had faith in them and'in0  me.' Now they are completely  ruined, and simply because they,  have been caught iri the vortex-of  a..gamble.: -..; .They���,.boughfc their,  slmres in good fait hi"    ~ ���'  "Mr. Hill," asked the reporter,  "do you not think that 'the community of interests' principle or  idea is-having a pretty severe trial  just now?"  "Well, that.I cannot talk about  now. I feel too much grieved over  the situation. This very morning  I got a letter from the wife of a  friend of mine telling me of the  losses to her family. I repeat that  this trouble has not been of my  making and no one regrets it more  than I do."  "Will the trouble end soon?"  "Yes, if common sense prevails,  yes."    ' .������ .   "-   -���    ���    *  ������_.:  .Will Receive Small Pensions.  .< London, May 12.���The ladies of  the late queen Victoria's court,  after anxious waiting, have learned  that they are to receive pensions,  "although minute onesi Many of  these former members of the royal  household, though of high lineage,  have meager fortunes and the maids  of honor and others have found  their posts richer in honor than in  profit. The excise for the meager-  ness of the pensions is the inadequacy ( for the provisions of the  royal ' expenses. During the last  few years queen Victoria was  unable from the civil list to meet  the official expenditure and was  obliged to draw on. her private  fortune. King lid ward now has to  keep up Balmoral Castle and  Osborne House, costing $31,000  annually, although he dislikes both  places.  American Style Sails Condemned.  Southampton, May 12.���Both  the piofessional and amateur  yachtsmen who have watched the  bellying mainsail, cut in American  fashion, hitherto used in trials of  Shorn rock II have condemned it as  lacking driving power. The new  mainsail which is now being prepared is therefore being cut with  the cloths running crosswise to set  as nearly as possible as fiat as in  the case of Shamrock I. The trial  given the Columbia's pattern of  mainsail was in order that the  respective merits of the sails might  be fully tested. But yachtsmen  here found that it was not so quick  to pick up thin streaks of wind, ho  they determined to stick to the  flat sails which all British skippers  pin their faith to.  McKinley's Movements.  (Dki>montr, California, May 12.���  Owing to the state of Mrs. McKinley's health, the prosident and Mrs.  McKinley, accompanied by Dr.  Rixey, left for San Francisco at  12:30 o'clock today. They will go  to the residence of Henry T. Scott,  where it is hoped that the complete rest will have a beneficial  effect upon Mrs. McKinley. Her  condition is said not to be alarming, but she 19 worn out by her  long journey, and it was considered  wise to take her to San Francisco,  where she could have proper nursing and where specialists could be  consulted if necessary. The programme for the party between here  and San. Francisco will be carried  out as originally planned, and the  president expects to be able to  rejoin the.parfcy at San Jose tomorrow afternoon if Mrs. McKinley's  condition warrants it.

William Moore and Pedro Cherbo  have leased the Waverley group,  near - Kuskonook, and a party of  miners left Nelson yesterday morning for the scene. of operations.  The property is said to be very  rich, carrying lead, silver and gold  giving values of $75 per ton. Some  14 tons of this material is now  sacked on the ground, and will be  shipped at once to the smelter. It  is claimed that there is any quantity of this class of ore in sight.  + ���  The Twenty-fourth of May.  The 24th of May will be celebrated in Kaslo, and great preparations are being made for the event.  The Oddfellows of Nelson are  arranging for a trip to the eity by  the lake, and the Knights of  Pythias have engaged a steamer to  ply between Nelson and what is  known as Molly Gibson ranch, a  beautiful spot for a day's outing.  The friends of both organizations  are being canvassed, so as to make  up a big party.  Telegraph Construction.  Vancouver, May 12.���[Special  to The Tribune.]���J. B.

The Act of a Hero.  Indianapolis, May 12.���William  Phelps of Richmond, Kentucky,  and James Stansbury of .this eity  were cleaning the inside of an upright boiler at the Cerealine Mills  this afternoon when an employee  turned on steam, thinking the cock  was tight. It leaked, and the  scalding steam poured in on the  two men, The only exit was up a  ladder to a hole in the top.  Both men jumped for the  ladder. Phelps       reached       it  first, took one step and stopped.  He then stood aside and shouted,  "You go first, Jim, you are married."  Stansbury sprang up the ladder and  escaped withjdjght_burns aboutjthe  face aud legs. Though Phelps  hurried at his heels his act of  heroism cost him his life. By the  time he had followed Stansbury up  the ladder the flesh was dropping  from his limbs.. He lived two hours.  The Marlboroughs.  London, May 12.���The duke and  duchess of Marlborough have taken  active and conspicuous part in the  Primrose League meeting this week,  always appearing together as if to  emphasize that there is no truth in  the recent stories of a serious misunderstanding between them.

The press of Toronto, after doing  everything in its power ttf enable a  Toronto syndicate to deliver the  mining and smelting industry of  British Columbia over to the tender  mercies of James J. Hill, is now  urging the people of Canada to  rescue Toronto from the clutches of  the Bell Telephone Company's  monopoly.  Grand Forks' second smelter  seems to be a good deal of a fake.  As nearly as can be ascertained the  smelter project was worked for the  purpose of fleecing confiding investors in the United States in a  mining and. smelting floatation.  The scheme was taken up by some  of the Grand Forks people, one of  whom developed sufficient confidence to lend the promoter $500���  which has never come back.  Premier Laurier has refused to  make the alien labor law more  effective by enabling police and  stipendiary magistrates to put the  legal machinery in operation instead of requiring the consent of  the attorney-general as at present.  This may be taken to mean that  the alien labor act is designed to  - capture the labor vote rather, than  to shut out laborers- imported into  the country under contract.  The publication of the assessment roll is being advocated  throughout the eastern provinces  as the best method to secure  uniformity in assessments. Under  the present system IJhe municipality  -gets-much-the-worst of-the deal,-in-  that nearly all the appeals are  against over valuation. Publication  .of -the. assessment roll, in some  form or other, would furnish means  for a check upon under valuation as  well as over valuation.  TRUNKS  VALISES  - Relation's are becoming somewhat-strained between the Methodist ' church of British Columbia  and the Salvation Army organization, over the intrusion of the  Army forces into the Methodist  mission field at Port Simpson. The  Army has been repeatedly requested to evacuate, but so far  without effect. The matter will  now be referred to tlie general  mission board of the Methodist  church in Toronto, and failing redress the Methodists will doubtless  refuse further financial assistance  to Salvation Army projects.  During the last hours of the recant session of the legislature the  solicitors of the V. V. & E. railway  company submitted a lengthy protest to the Dunsmuir government  against the provisions of the railway bill. From the document submitted it is plain that the holders  of the V. V. & E. charter have no  intention of building tlie Coast-to-  Kootenay railway, and that they  never entertained any such intention when the provisions of  ���Jhe government measure were  passed        to      suit      themselves.  We have   received and  are showing a full stock  of Trunks and Valises in  the cheaper as well as the  better grades,   and   are  offering them at greatly  reduced   prices ��� prices  the lowestiii the city.

Baker Street. Limited.  NELSON, B. C.  Pianos to Kent. .  The lawyers who are looking  after James J. Hill's interests in  this matter take exception to every  material safeguard of the public  interest. They object not only ,to  the clause requiring a percentage  of the gross earnings of the road as  interest upon the government loan,  but they also object to the clause  providing for government control  of the railway company's rates.  After all their talk about  being ready to commence building operations at both ends  at the drop of . the hat  the V. V. & E. people refuse to  consider the government's,proposals  unless every material restriction  placed upon them in the public  interest is removed. This means  some company other than the V.  V. & E. will build the Coast-to-  Kootenay road.  The Tribune's Flower Garden.  Phoenix Pioneer.  One of the best looking papers in  the province is the Nelson Tribune,  ��of which John Houston, M.

The Toronto Oracle.  Kingston Whig.  There is too much of the oracle  about the Toronto Telegram���too  much of the knowable and dogmatic spirit. If you accept its talk  as gospel, it represents the one  sleepless sentinel that is watching  the crossroads for monopolists, with  the sandbag that hurts and the  knife that kills.  Cardinal Gibbons' Visit.  New York, May 12.���Cardinal  Gibbons, who will sail for Rome today, said of his journey: "My visit  to Rome has no special significance.  I am going to make my regular  visit to the holy father. I will see  his holiness and confer with him regarding the condition of the church  in America. I am certainly not going to Rome for the specific purpose  of discussing church conditions in  the Philippines. The cardinal said  that he was worn out and was seeking a long sea voyage. He probably will not return until the end  of tlie summer. *  delicate and sensitive astronomical  nstruments ever made, an instrument capable of measuring the heat  of a candle a mile away. '"The  first measurements of stellar heat,"  says professor Hale, "upon the life  history of stars is very important,  but general conclusions cannot be  drawn until further results can be  obtained. Professor Nichols will be  assisted in this valuable work by  professor Charles E. St. John, of  Oberlin college, and A. L. Col ton,  formerly assistant at the Lick  Observatory."  Not Guilty.  Boston, Massachusetts, May 12.���  After being out eleven hours and a  quarter the jury in the case of*  Henry E. Parsons, charged with the  murder of William T. Hammond in  Charleston, Bunker Ilill day, at 2:25  Saturday morning returned a verdict of not guilty. The prisoner  showed no signs of emotion wheu  the verdict was announced and  stated later that he was not in the  least surprised. Parsons was discharged at once. Mrs. Parsons was  not there, although she had stood  by him faithfully throughout the  trial, whicli began on Monday.  Parsons had had an altercation with  Hammond and on its renewal he  used a revolver. He claimed it was  in self defense.  9.  ��� "n^.  ��� 00 ' 00' 00 ' ^' 00' 0f. 00.  -00 ���  '1SI0.  ^0 .00 .00 .00 .00 . 00 .00 . 09 .00 . 00 .00 . 00  'fJS*' ^Dftvqgtr- <9fe-4Bft��-- <SM**'4B��' Of <sxer *��&�����-<JB��-*  ���VBfc. *^fc -^Jfck ��� ^���tt*. *^fc ��� >��K '*&K ��� ^^ ���*����. ���>���*. ���>������� ���  v<5  Rumor has it that J.

It is thought  that the stock will be turned over  to the Harriman interest.  NEW YORK, 12.-A sensation  has been caused at. Montevideo,  says a special dispatch, by the  arrest of Miguel Hen-era Obex,  brother .of" a" former president of  Uruguay. Colonel Manuel Roder-  iguez aud colonel Circicao Durgis  have also been arrested.' There are  accusations against other prominent men in connection with the  conspiracy against the government.  The political situation is very complicated. Uneasiness prevails  throughout the country. ,,  CONSTANTINOPLE, 12.���A third  note, evidently emanating direct  from the .sultan, was delivered  yesterday to the ambassadors demanding in peremptory language  the immediate suppression of the  foreign offices and reiterating the  charges of smuggling against  foreign oilicials. The ambassadors  immediately returned the note to  the'porte, thus creating a partial  cessation of relations between the  "embassies and the Turkish government.

Home, a naturalized American citizen, and who is a  member of a wholesale firm in this  city, has been forced by the Russian government, of which country  he is a native, to pay a fine of 000  roubles, amounting to $350. Mr.  Home received notice several  months ago from Russia that the  line had been imposed because he  did not serve his time in the Russian army. Through the American  minister at, St. Petersburg he arbitrated the matter, claiming exemption because of now being ah  American citizen. He desired ito  go to Russia in person, but the  American official informed him that  it would be exceedingly difficult to  secure his release from the arrest  which would surely ensue as soon  as he entered the czar's domain.  The Russian government seized the  honiestead of Mr. Home's parents  at Nieieh, Northern Russia, to  secure payment of the fine. Mr.  Home's parents are aged,.and their  only property is their home. To  prevent ,'them from being turned  out Home paid his fine.  A girl's idea of diplomacy is to  pick out another girl for a man she  thinks wants her and deviling him  into going with her.

Monday morning in the hope of  reaching a solution of the difficulty  in which operators and brokers  who have given calls for Northern  Pacifies for the end of May and  July find themselves. It developed  today that every share here was  held by Morgan and Kuhn, Loeb &  Compauy, and therefore the brokers  are unable to secure a single share  for delivery. The situation has a  depressing affect. Owing to the  closing of the New York Stock Exchange Americans were. stagnant,  awaiting developments  J. P. Morgan will  be  in  London  Saturday afternpjm_aud__a_. eon-  ference will be held. It is hoped  he and Kuhn, Loeb & Company will  do something to relieve the situation. In..the meanwhile there is  considerable anxiety. Though the  closing of the Stock Exchange here  was easier, quotations mostly  showed a marked advance. Northern  Pacific common was quoted at an  advance of 20i- points in connection  with the settlement.  Many speculators went dovvn  town to await the bank statement  and to get the London quotations  for American securities. At 2 p. m.  London's prices generally showed  an advance as compared with the  close at New York yesterday, the  extreme rise being 18 points in  Northern Pacific. AU interests in  the financial world remained absorbed in the great contest .for the  control of Northern Pacific and the  rivalries that have been caused by  that battle. The heavy buying in  Union Pacific yesterday provoked  much comment, and today the  "street" was wondering whether  the fight of the railway giants was  to be transferred to that stock  again. The high price for Northern Pacific in London Saturday was  taken by mauy as an indication  that buying for coutrol of the property was still going on wherever  the seller had the stocks to deliver.  It was learned today also that at  the time Kuhn, Loeb & Co. were  settling with shorts yesterday at  $150 a share, they were paying the  same price over the counter to all  who offered the security for-jtnstant  delivery.
