P. Morgan' was lending the stock  " flat " for delivery in that market,  the New York Stock Exchange today began business strong. To  judge by the first prices on the tape  no  impression whatever had been  leffc by last Thursday's tremendous  drop in values. The first trading  was well distributed though the  list and was afc prices generally  higher than the close on Friday.  News from the London market  was scrutinized with lively interest  in ��Wall street this morning. At  the beginning of a fortnight the  stock exchange settlement was expected to show the efforts of last  week's events here, including tlie  coiner in Northern Pacifies, and the  fall in prices of.other stocks. The  news that a settlement; had been  agreed to wifch tlie shorts in Northern Pacific on the basis of 110 in  London was therefore received with  great satisfaction here. The  stock was lending "flat" for stock  exchange settlement.  London, May 13.���The stock exchange committee and J. P. Morgan  have come to tlie rescue of the  situation aud the difficulty whicli  o^jrators who have given calls for  No^hern Pacific for the end of May  and July found themselves in is satisfactorily settled. Tlie committee  decided that the "buying iu" of  Northern Pacific common and preferred should be shuuted for; the  present. This-means that the stock  need nob be delivered im mediately.  Morgan' is lending Northern Pacific  Pacific at "evfcn"���that is, fir  nothing.  Not Financially Interested.  Philadelphia,-' Pa., May 13.���  Fourth vice-president Ilea of the  Pennsylvania Railroad Compauy  gave out the following statement in  connection with the report thafc tho  Pennsylvania Railroad Company  was backing the North River bridge  project: "The Pennsylvania Railroad Company declines to say anything about the -North River Bridge  Company beyond the fact tljafc tho  Pennsylvania Railway Company  has agreed to use the bridge terminal when builfc in conjunction witli  other railway companies terminating on the west side of the North  jiyer,_but jtlie  Ponnsylyjiuia^Rajj  road Company is not backing the  North River Bridge Company financially, and has not beeu asked to  do'so."     ___________  Shot to Kill.  Nisw York, May 13.���.Tolm Boush  today shot and instantly killed Arthur Schwan/. at Roslyn, L. I., and  a hundred men aro searching for  Boush, who lied after committing  what; is termed a murder. When  Schwan/. returned from work this  evening he turned his horse out to  graze. Ifc strayed into land occupied by Boush, who came out and  remonstrated. Schwan/. led the  horse away, after telling Boush he  should keep his fences repaired.  This seemed to anger him, for he  returned to his house, secured a  shotgun and following Schwanz  down the road emptied both barrels into him.  Death of Archbishop Lewis.  London, May 13. ��� Archbishop  Lewis of Ontario died May 4th on  board the Atlantic Transport; Line  steamer Menomee.

Manila, May 13.���The United  States Philippine commission finds  that the internal collections in most  of the provinces are not sufficient  io support the provincial govern- j  ment until the beginning of collections of land taxes a year hence and  appropriations of $2000 to $3000  will be made from the insular  treasury in favor of several of the  provinces. It is considered certain  that colonel Charles A. Woodruff,  the chief commissary officer, had no  connivance with the contractor's  frauds. The appearance of his  name is explained by the fact that  the contractors paid the renting  agents a portion of the rent for  colonel Woodruff's house above the  price which was named to colonel  Woodruff. This amount colonel  Woodruff offered to refund when  he discovered ifc, having in the  meanwhile left the house. But the  agent declined to accept it.  Scabs Are Employed.  Albany, N. Y., May 13.���Under  the escort of a platoon of mounted  police and surrounded by a mob of  two thousand Albanians two hundred non-union men were taken at  midnight to the Quail street car  barns of the United Traction Company, which is in the main station  of tlie Albany line of the company.;  Stones were hurled at the nonunion men and oaths and derisive  epithets were hurled at them from  the West Shore railway station to  the barns, a distance of three miles.  This is the first step taken by the  company to operate its lines with  non-union men. The officials of the  company announce that traffic will  be resumed in the morning.  Kick at Amount of Indemnity.  London, May 11.���Dr. Morrison,  wiring to the Times from Pekin,  May 10, says: The Chinese plenipotentiaries are drafting a reply to  the ministers of the powers, ex-,  pressing astonishment at the  amount of indemnity demanded,  and urging a reduction on the  ground of the empire's financial difficulties, but undertaking if the full  amount is exacted to pay in thirty  annual installments of 15,000,000  taels from the likin salt tax and  native customs. Pending a revision  of the tariff, they also ask the pow-  i rs to consent to an increase ot the  maritime customs and the import  and export duties by one-third.  Porto Rican Embezzlers.  Poxcb, Porto Rico, May 13.���Carlos and Romou Julia, respectively  postmaster and assistant postmaster  at Juana Diaz, have been arrested  on the charge of embezzlement.  The amount involved is not mentioned. Inspector Smith oh April 17th  found that the post office at Juana  Diaz should have a balance of $952,  but no cash was on hand. The  bondsmen of the men will reimburse  the government in full. The Julias  issued money orders on credit before receiving the cash and it is believed they charged their customers  a commission.

SANCUILLY A HARD KICKER  HE IS THE OBJECTOR OF CUBAN  CONVENTION.  The Piatt Proposition Is Distasteful  to Many of the Island  Statesmen.  Havana, May 13.��� The Cuban  constitutional convention met today in secret session and formally  considered the report of the commission that went to Washington  to obtain more definite information  regarding the intentions of the  United States government. General  Sanguilly objected to their report  on the ground of "incompleteness,  pointing out that the commission  made no recommendation. "They  were sent to Washington," he said,  "with the object of getting some of  the bases changed, but they offer  . no explanation as to why the  changes could not be effected, nor  do they express an opinion regarding the acceptance or rejection of  the Piatt amendment, as we'hid  expected they would."  Senators Tamayo, Llorente and  Belancourt replied that secretary  "Root had explained that the bases  could not be changed, as the Piatt  amendment was the final policy of  the Washington administration. It  was useless, they went on to say,  for them to insist., upon a~ change,  but the construction Mr. Root put  on the bases, together with his assurance that the United States  would establish an independent  government iu Cuba and would not  interfere Avith Cuban sovereignty,  influenced them in favor of accepting the amendment, although they  did not recommend this course in  the report.  Senor Portuuodo declared that1  he did not agree with his colleagues  who had already spoken, but was  opposed to adopting the Piatt  amendment.  Senor Juan " Calluberto Gomez  moved that the report be referred  to the committee on relations  whose last report has still to be  acted upon. He admitted that the  commission's visit to Washington  had thrown new light upon the  amendment, but he thought it only  just that the commission should be  allowed an opportunity to change  the report in order to conform to  the new conditions. An attempt  was made to., take an immediate  vote wifch reference to . the amendment, but the motion of��������� senor  Gomez was finally adopted, the  committee being instructed to act  promptly. It is expected that  several days will elapse before the  amended report is submitted to the  convention. A movement is on  fOSt^tB^llffj^iinlttll^tioiruntil^after"  the municipal elections.  A majority of the committee on  relations, senors Lamayo, Villu-  endas and Dequesada are in favor  bf accepting the Piatt amendment.  Senors Gomez and Silva oppose  acceptance. ;  against, the United States, says :  "As matters stand for Europe today,  the struggle for existence demands  that the exceptional position of tlie  United States be abolished. The  United States are a most dangerous  competitor for Germany, especially  in iron manufacture aud hardware.  Sertnany's tariff policy must be  arranged accordingly. An understanding with Russia offers many  ways and means to compel -the  United States to adapt themselves  to Europe's tariff system by which  German agriculture would by no  means suffer disadvantage." .  KILLED    BY   ELECTRICITY  FATAL    ACCIDENT    AT    EXPOSITION GROUNDS.  Watson Not Satisfied.  (-.Weymouth,*May 13.���Mr. Watson considers today's results so unsatisfactory, that he has decided  off hand to take the new boat back  to Southampton and have her  docked in order to ascertain  whether any of the plates were displaced by the grounding on Dean,  bank last week. Opportunity will  be taken to have her new gaff and  mainsail fitted. The work will proceed night and day Until it is  finished and the trialsi will then be  resumed at Weymouth.

HAMBURG LINE INCREASED  3ECURES  POSSESSION   OF ATLAS  COMPANY.  Now Has in Service 120 vessels With a  Total Tonnage  of 630,000----  The Price Paid..  In the Commons.  London, May 13.���Mr.vWyndham,  the Irish secretary, in - defending  the general economy of the military establishment in the commons  today said that while the'jBritish  soldier cost in%< all.��111 annually,  the American soldier, not taking  into account the pensions, cost ��2S7  annually before the waiv with  Spain aud prior to the date when  the United States had foreign  stations. After several other  speeches the debate was adjourned.  The civil list resolution was  adopted by 248> to 49 votes and the  civil list bill passed its first reading.  The only really interesting speech  was made by Winston Churchill  who, following in his father's foot-,  steps, entered a strong protest on  behalf of economy and against  "overgrowing military extravagance." The house listened in impressive silence to Mr. Churchill's  eloquent appeal. His style \ of  speaking is still unequal, but he  has the power to dominate parliament.  A Tariff Combine.  Berlin, May 13.���The Cologne  Gazette, which often voices the  views of the German foreign office,  in the course of a leading article  today advocating a tariff understanding with Russia in order, that  the two powers  might  act jointly  Nkw York, 'May 13.���Following  the annual announcement of a visit;  to the city of the director general  Albert Hall of the Hamburg Line  Steamship Company makes' the  statement that the Hamburg American has acquired the Atlas S team-  ship Line, whibh for the past thirty  years has plied between Jamaica,  Hayti and Central America.

By its acquisition of the Atlas line it has gained  seven=steamships=of=an=average-  tonnage of 30,000 tons. Though  not officially announced it is claimed  that the Atlas line was sold to the  Hamburg American line for cash,  and the consideration amounts to  between three and five millions.  Proposed Steamship Combine.  New York, May 13.���President  Bernard N. Baker of the Atlantic  Transportation line arrived here  tonight on the steamship Minneapolis from London. He went to  Kngland a short time ago for the  purpose of securing through the aid  of J. P.

With the men in other  trades who would be affected, at  least 20,000 workiugmen it is estimated would have to quit. The  mason builders at a recent meeting,  it is said, decided on a lockout  proposition if the bricklayers should  falter in their annual agreement  before Thursday next.  Bright Prospects at Moyie.

New York, May 13.���Refusing to  touch a mouthful of food, valet  Charles F. Jones, the self-confessed  "murderer of William Rice, who once  before attempted to kill himself in  the Tombs by cutting his throat, is  slowly starving to death in the  House of Detention. Jones is the  state's principal .witness against.  Albert T. Patrick, now under inr  dictment for murder., Jones, at  Patrick's preliminary hearing, told  in a dramatic manner of 'Rice's  murder. This was the third confession of Jones.  After making a previous statement accusing Patrick, he thrust a  penknife deep into his throat. The  knife, he swore, was given him by  Patrick, who, he claimed, had also  agreed to commit suicide. For five  days Jones has eaten no solid food.  Nothing but Vichy and milk has  passed his lips. Ib had been feared  that the environment of the Tombs  would prey upon Jones, and extraordinary means had been exerted  to keep the valet in good spirits.  Of late, however, he had grown despondent, and has brooded much  over his crime.  things will boom here.

A man was telling me the other  day that his wife went to get some  things, among others, shirt waists,  that would cost a dollar to a dollar  and a half each, but here they -aro  fifteen to twenty dollars. A Mrs.  Hutchorn went out on the stage in  January and came back three Aveeks  ago with nine large trunks full of  ladies' clothing, which cost her at  Chicago $5000.^ She told me this  morning she would clear between  ten and fifteen thousand after paying all expenses; aud she starts back  for more by Saturday's stage."'

From the time when  it is supposed death took possession of the body there were  signs which completely mystified  her physicians and others called in  for consultation. Early today the  watchers were startled to observe a  twitching of the muscles of the  body, beginning at the neck aud  continuing to the lower part of the  abdomen. It was hoped that' she  would regain consciousness, but the  convulsion lasted but a short time,  the warmth left the body and unmistakable signs of death appeared.  Several hours later Dr. Field pronounced her dead.  Boston   5,   Phila-  Eastern Baseball.  At   Toronto���Toronto    4,   Wor  cester 7. .  ^^t=PrttlblTfg^^PittIbTifg���2r=Ci1>  cinuati 3.

Chicago,Illinois, May 13.���"JP^kin  is the present political capital' of  Christendom; all eyes are turned  towards the great city. It is the  greatest practical school .in' the  world. There the nations ai e gaining an education ,and an .insight  into Chinese affairs which they  have never possessed before," thus  said Dr. William S. Amend, the'returned missionary, speaking at the  First Congregational church-last  night. Continuing, he said r "It is  a remarkable fact that in the great  Chinese nation, one of the oldest  among the civilized, the very home  of conservatism, the natives are beginning to realize the need of new  ideas aud modernism is fast gaining  a foothold. Only a few days before  I left China a prominent Chinese  gentleman said to me : 'We Chinese  know that we are in need of many  things, but first of all we need a  new religion,' and that is true ; they  do need a new religion, and Christianity is thoroughly adequate for  the Chinese. Ifc is still full of life  and I look for a  great awakouing."  Serious Detroit Blaze.  Detroit, May 3.���Fanned by a  35 mile an hour wind, firo j-ester-  day afternoon swept the west of  Rouge river in Delrey, a suburb to  -the���south���of���Detroit,���for���rthiee���  quarters of a mile and destroyed  $800,000 of property. The fire  originated on the roof of Salliotfce  it Ferguson's lumber mill. The fire  spread in the large yard which the  Western Union Telegraph Company  used as a storage point for cedar  telegraph poles. The yaid is the  distributing point for ten states aud  over 100,000 poles wero stored  there. The fire swept through the  yard, which comprises about eight  acres in less than two hours, but  the poles blazed until far into the  night. The lumber yard of G. A.  Paupp & Co. in Ecourse, about a  mile from Detroit, was set on fire  by sparks from a passing engine  and 500,000 feet of lumber was destroyed.     The loss is about $75,000.  Million Dollars a Day,  President Kruger of the South  African republic said, or is reported  to have said, that, if the British  wanted to take his country, he  would make them pay $500,000,000  for it. Tlie South African war has  cost already $750,000,000. And, as  it is admitted that tho war expenditure is going on at the rate of  $1,000,000 per day, and immense"  sums will have to be paid in the  way of compensation and assistance  to ruined farmers, through the  Kitchener plan of making the country an empty desert, it is a conservative estimate that the total  cost of the South African war will  not fall short of $1,000,000,000���a  sum equivalent to the total valuation of real and personal estate ia  our city of Boston, three times the  cost of the Crimean war and one  third of the debt incurred by Great  Britain in the fight for her life with  Napoieou.  ��i��l  7i  x'yi-  tC^'-V  .* *^j  :<m  ��� _&��  ��*A  -T^i  '<-r_v'J11  1.1  A"^l  'k ' '>"'<���  ,5-    t-  TT,  -?r->.x>.'_  ���-<���:&  - K >'���.'���-��:���--*-  THE TRIBUNE:  NELSON, B.

R.  branch into the Lardeau.has started  a little boom in Trout Lake real  estate.            .7-  Tub Sunday-observance aldermen are reported as seriously thinking of handing in their resignations,  iu order to be better able to devote  their entire time to teaching Sunday schools.  Moyie is in luck. Word comes  from there that the big St. Eugene  mine, which is the mainstay of the  town, will resume work with a full  force on Tuesday, and so far as  possible all old hands will be again  employed.  " The reduction of the force at the  Athabasca, while more or less unwelcome, had to come sooner or  later. It was not to Joe expected  that any company would very long  keep a crew of seventy-five men  feeding a ten-stamp mill. Such a  policy involves too great a tax upon  the ore, and after development has  advanced sufficiently the same results can be obtained with a much  smaller force. 9  TRUNKS  VALISES  We have received and  are showing a full stock  of Trunks and Valises in  the cheaper as well as the  better grades, and aro  offering them at greatly  reduced prices ��� prices  A comparison of quality'  We invite  tho lowest in the city  for quality will convince you of this,  this comparison.

EASTERN CANADIAN NEWS  The circumstance that the British  government went behind' $3,500,-  000 last year in the operation of its  telegraph system will doubtless be  used for all it is worth by those  who are opposed to the Canadian  ���government assuming the ownership and control of the Canadian  telegraph systems. The figures,  however, prove nothing. The deficit may be altogether due to heavy  expenditures incident to telegraph  extensions, but if not it would  simply indicate that the rates  charged by the  government for its  service are not sufficiently high to  pay i operating expenses. This, it  must be confessed, is a difficulty  easier of solution than would be the  case were the telegraphs owned by  private individuals aud operated  under excessive rates.  CHARLOTTETOWN, P. E. I., 13.  ���Ex-lieutenant governor Howlaiid  died Saturday night.  QUEBEC, 13.���Hon. William  Harty and two directors of the  Kingston Locomotive Works were  in town today to discuss the removal of the works from Kingston  to Quebec.  CHARLOTTETOWN, P. E. I., IS.  ���Donald Currie, a shoemaker, committed suicide last' night by drinking a bottle of carbolic acid.- He  died in great agony. He leaves a  widow and family.  BRADFORD, Ontario, 13. ��� A  young man named Grant was instantly killed by lightning yesterday, which struck' the Presbyterian  church. Grant and a companion  named Robins were standing in the  porch pf the edifice when lightning  passed through the belfry into the  porch.    Robins was stunned.  MONTREAL, 13.���-Two cases of  smallpox have declared themselves amongst 900 passengers of  the steamship Lake Superior who  have been landed at��Grosse Isle  quarantine station and there are  other cases under observation. In-  spection of the vessel is proceeding.  The meeting  of   Nelson's  retail  merchants, which is called for this  evening to consider the Thursday  closing movement,  should be well  attended.    Since the agreement was  reached in favor of the Thursday  half holiday a new feature has been  introduced which may very materially affect the situation from  the  Nelson   retail merchants  point of  view.     This has been presented by  the decision of the Canadian Pacific  Railway Company to resume work  on the Lardeau branch from Kootenay  lake   to Trout  Lake.      This  means  the building  of thirty-five  miles of railway,  and will furnish  employment   for  several   hundred  men.    From   this  work the retail  merchants of Nelson should derive  considerable   trade,    both   in   the  supplying of the  contractors and  the men employed, but it is a class  of business which must be caught  on the wing.    It is  for  the  merchants   of   Nelson    to    determine,  whether   or not   they will lessen  their chances of securing the whole  or any of it by closing their places -  of business every Thursday afternoon.  TORONTO, 13.���The General  Ministerial Association passed a  resolution today calling on the  government to enact laws prohibiting the manufacture, importation  and sale of cigarettes in Canada  and making it a misdemeanor for  any person to have them iu his  possession.  MONTREAL, 13.���Justice Math-  ieu today gave judgment for $1000  in favor of Napoleon Maille, au ex-  letter carrier, against detective  Vaughn, now chief of police of Rossland. Vaughn arrested Maille for  stealing a registered decoy letter,  but could not make a case against  him. Maille lost his place and sued  for damages.  The Burlington Deal.  New York, May 13.���The Evening Post says : It is believed that  some arrangements will be worked  out by which Burlington will be  held so that it can't possibly be  operated to the injury of any of  the western railroads. That is, the  Southern and Union Pacific will not  only get an interest in the .property, but St. Paul, which, next to  the Union Pacific, was most seriously jeopardized by the passing  of the Burlington's control to the  northern transcontinental lines will  share in the Burlington contract, so  that it will be removed absolutely  as a disturbing factor in the railway situation.  "It is not believed that J. Pierpont Morgan & Co. will be displaced  as company responsible before the  public for that property's management, but there was some suggestion that the alliance between Mr.  Hill  and Mr. Morgan, which lias  only been of about six months'  duration, will be ended. There is  good grounds for saying that while  Mr. Hill has probably been retaining the large interest in Northern  Pacilic wliieh he acquired last  summer when the stock declined  below 50 on the reduction of the  dividend, tho most influential of  Mr. Hill's friends in the directorate  have relinquished their holding?.  Assay Office for Vancouver.  Vancouver, May 13.���[Special  to The Tribune.]���At a special  meeting of the board of trade this  uviming a resolution was passed  asking the government for an assay office iu Vancouver. G. R. Maxwell. M. P., said he cotdd assure tlie  meeting that an assay oflice would  come here. A resolution was also  passed for the appointment of a  county court judge for this city.  Maxwell said judge Irving had  broken faith with the government  in not residing in Vancouver. President Burns of the board of trade  explained that Mrs..Irving objected  to residing in Vancouver and judge  Irving had said he would rather resign than come to Vancouver under  those circumstances.  A case of smallpox was quarantined in Miss Connelly's boarding  house here today, with 12 other  boarders also locked up. C. F. Ford  is the patient.  Another Eecord.  Providence, R. I., May. 12.���At  the opening cycle meet of the  season at Hill Grove this afternoon  the star event was the 20 mile  motor-paced race between Burns  Pierce, Harry Caldwell and F. J.  Cadwell. Cad well's motor went  wrong in the first few miles and he  had to quit., Caldwell led Pierce  until the 10th mile, Avhen Pierce  went to the front and won. by a  lap in 150 yards, creating a new  set of state records for paced  racing, flying start in 36.21 h.  Rumor has it that J. A. McDonald's ice cream parlors, on Baker  street are the finest in the city.  MM B. CAMERON  INSURANCE,  REAL ESTATE  and MINING BROKER  FURNISHED HOUSE TO LET.

LONDON, 13.���Lord Kitchener in  a   dispatch   from   Pretoria, dated  Between the Shamrocks.  Weymouth,'May 13..���In'weather'  .conditions all favorable for a fair  trial, with wind fresh and steady,  the course clear of all obstructions  and no tides, of any consequence,  the Shamrock I today beat sir  Thomas Lipton's new boat by five  minutes and five seconds over a triangular course of about 20 miles.  The only possible disad vantageJito;  thte challenger was in the fact that  she used her old mainsail, which set  worse since its salt-water bath of  Tuesday. There was no; discoyer-  .able heading back of the challenger, although once or twice she  pointed'such-:-a course as left the  'suspicion that the steersman was  not taking advantage of every  chance. The Shamrock I on the  previous spins had not shown even  equality with the Shamrock II in  any point of sailing.  The yachts started outside Port-  .land breakwater over a triangular  course. Shamrock I led.out to a  good start a length ahead, and the  boats rounded the first mark as follows: The Shamrock I. 1 hour, 17  minutes and 2 seconds; the Shamrock II 1 hour, 17 minutes and 47  seconds. As the yachts squared  away for the run home at the end  of the second leg the Shamrock I  led by about a minute. The following were the times of the yachts  at the finish: .'Shamrock I���2, 0, 14;  Shamrock II���2, 11, 17. The older  boat won the first set race.  Nelson Branch���Burns Block, 221 Baker  Street.

Nkw York, May 13. ��� Samuel  Gompers, president of the American  Federation of Labor, was asked  last night, says a. World special  from Washington, to reply to the  statement , credited to president  Schwab of the steel corporation  before the industrial commission to;  the effect that the labor organizations put all men on a level and  prevent one from advancing until  all advance. Mr. Gompers said: "It  is a misstatement to say we are endeavoring to fix one price for wages  of workingmen of any one class.  What we aim at is to establish a  minimum of wages below which  workingmen will not be obliged to  labor. Because a minimum is  established it does not follow that  a worker cannot receive more than  that."  For Sale oi* Rent  Old Curiosity Shop.  To Let���-0-rpomed house.   Apply  T. H.

THE   MUNICIPAL   COUNCIL  '���'''.        -o .. ...  Last Night's Proceedings;  At last night's meeting of the  'city, council-there was a full attendance of aldermen and mayor Fletcher presided. The only visitor  present was an insurance agent,  and he took a back seat.  The finance committee recommended payments to the amount of  $2600, which were approved, and  an order made that checks be issued  to cover same.  The recommendation of the auditor as to changes in the mode of  book-keeping were endorsed by the  finance committee and adopted by  the board.  Some discussion took place as to  providing a vault, as suggested by  the auditor. In his quarterly report he pointed out that there was  really no place in which to keep the  city documents, and that should a  fire occur the registers might be  destroyed.  Alderman Irving suggested that  proper accommodation should be  furnished. As a member of the  finance committee he would like to  see their documents properly protected. After a good deal of discussion the matter was referred to  the finance committee.  A number of petitions were received for roadway and sidewalk  improvements, which were referred  to the board of works.  Contracts were invited for the  supply of steel pipe for the water  service, and were referred to the  city engineer.  The fire, water and light committee recommended _,.-tiiat the  "Kootenay Eake"Telep]i6ne company7  be called upon to remove their  wires from city poles ; that tenders  be called for to erect the necessary  extra poles, and that the installation  be improved. The committee also  recommended that the volunteer  firemen be paid $15 per month, and  that this amount cover all claims.  Under present arrangements the  men are paid so much per call,  whether for active service or  practices. The arrangement is  claimed to be a saving tothe city  and satisfactory to the men.  Applications were received from  parties wanting sidewalks, etc.,  which were referred to the board of  works.  Bylaw No. 93 received its third  reading, and the council adjourned.  Yesterday's   Conference    Proceedings.  , After the usual conference prayer  meeting from 9 a.m. to 9:30 a.m.  the conference session was opened  in the usual way by the general  superintendent, who occupied the  chair. The morning was taken up  with the reports of committees.  Rev. Mr. Munroe, the Congregational pastor of this city, was  introduced to the conference and  in a neat speech responded to the  words of welcome from the general  superintendent.  In the afternoon a delegation  from the Socialistic Educational  Society, consisting of Messrs. Cox-  head, Broadway, Lackey and Ebb-  more, was introduced by Rev. J. II.  White, and heard with pleasure ou  the part of the conference regarding the government ownership of  the liquor traffic,  troduced to the conference by Rev.  J. H. White, and addressed the  conference.  In the evening Rev. Principal  Sipprell of the Columbia college, delivered the educational sermon.  Election of Officers Postponed.  The Nelson Liberal Association  did not elect officers last evening.  When the meeting was ��� called to  order it was found that the committee appointed on by-laws had  not reported. A new committee  was therefore appointed, and the  election of officers deferred until  Thursday, May 30.  Facts or Falsification.  Before Mr. justice Drake yesterday morning the case of Cordingly  vs. the Scottish Insurance Company  will be heard. The plaintiff conducted a furniture store at the west  end of Baker street, and during  dinner hour one fine day it was discovered to be on fire. Cordingly  was arrested on a charge pf arson,  but was acquitted. The place, was  insured, but the insurance company refused to settle "up  when the policy papers were produced. Hence the present action.  Cordingly was in the witness box  for several hours yesterday, but his  evidence was somewhat similar to  that adduced when he was in the  dock charged with arson. The insurance companies are straining  every nerve to prove that Cordingly  set fire to the place, and should  their efforts prove successful interesting developments," inay;' ensue.  REDUCED RAILROAD RATES  To the Buffalo Exposition.  [Spokesman-Review] ' ���  General passenger agent A. L.  Craig of the.0. R. & N. announces  that the people of Spokane and the  inland empire will probably be accorded a rate of $68.25 for the  round trip to the pan-American  exposition at Buffalo, and, a rate of  $50 for the round trip to St. Paul  and the Missouri river, on account  of the American medical association'  meeting and the national convention of Modern 'Woodmen.  While the transcontinental roads  have reached no agreement as yet  relative to reduced fares for the  pan-American exposition at Buffalo,  N. Y., the American'Medicatassocia-  tion meeting at St..Paul, May *20th  to June 7th, and the national convention of the Modern Woodmen of  America at St; Paul June llth, Mr.  Craig of the O. R; &.-N: has sent out  the following advance information,  which in all probability will govern  the handling *of passenger traffic for  those events. '   - .    ;   .  The information is of especial  interest, however, as it is the first  expression from any official of the  north Pacific coast roads touching  on what the public may expect in  the way of concessions from the  railways for the pan-American Exposition. Many people of Spokane  and throughout Washington and  the Pacific northwest want to visit  the Buffalo exposition, and many  others will take advantage of the  cheap rates to visit with relatives  and friends in the. east, whom they  have not seen in a number of years,  so that there is unusual interest  centered about.the matter. ������'."   ^  Mr. Craig says it is probable that  for   the   pan-American  exposition  the   rate   from    Portland,    Puget  sound and  common ,points  will be  about $78.25 to Buffalo and return,  and from Spokane, Pendleton, Ore.,  Lewistou, Idaho, and the Kootenai  country and common points $68.25.  Tickets   will be on sale Tuesday,  May 21, and each first and .third  Tuesdays from that time on  until  October 15,  inclusive. ������-The. going  limit will be seven days to the Missouri river or St. Paul, the journey  to commence on the day of sale.  The final limit will be 60 days west  of the Missouri river and St. Paul,  with stopover privileges in this territory   in either direction   within  limits.   Authority has been  asked  of the Western Passenger and Central Passenger association  lines for  this basis of rate's and limits,* and  definite announcement will.Be made  as soon as possible. ���',  Jacksonville is about to enforce  the edict that unless men work  they shall not be fed. But the governor has a strong force of troops  on hand to help carry out the edict.  PERSONAL.  TBLEFHONE 27  HI    B1TBBS   <fc   OO.

Parry Sound, May 13.���At the  trial of James Parton, evidence was  submitted showing the prisoner's  heartlessness. He is an Englishman  aud has lived in this, locality for a  score of years, occupying a farm  thirteen miles north of Parry Sound  in the township of McKell(\r. He  came from Crewe,. England, and is  said to be a remittance man. Twelve  of his family are living. Mrs.  Parton, inher evidence given at the  inquest after the death of the five  children in the burning of the farm  house, swore that her husband's  violence had caused her to leave the  house at times, and.to get help for  the children. As the,boys grew up  they left home. James, the eldest  lad, said he and his brothers had  never had proper treatment from  their father. If any of them had  an escape from, death Parton  would say that, would have been  one less to., keep.  The house,: whicli was destroyed  between,12!and 1 o'clock on Tuesday morning, April SOtb, consisted  of an old'log'built section joined by  a covered passageway to the newer  part built of frame. James and  Reginald Parton, slept over the  kitchen in the*1 log part. Tho  father, and mother slept in a lower  room in, the frame section, and  above them were thefive younger  children: Sarah, aged 18; Marion,  aged -14; "Carrie,- aged 7; Fanny,  aged.4; arid Daisy, aged 2 years.and  five ...months. ;;The stove in the  house had/not been, going for some  hours beforethei, fire started. The  upper part bf b,pth sections of the  house \yere found to. be burning at  the.same time, catting off two ways  of escape, for the children.  . According to the statement of the  two lads Reginald and James, and  Mrs. Parton, tne accused man did  verylittle towards .trying to save  the children. When awakened up  by his; wife he- went outside and  after watching .the fire for a time,  went to sleep in a hay mow.  Isaac Hurd, the first neighbor to  reach the fire, told of seeing Parton  at eight o'clock in the morning going to Tarry \Sound. Hurd said,  " This was ; anj awful affair," and  Parton replied.; .; "Yes, all my good  clothes are burnt and $9." Hurd  said, "What is that, if the children  were safe," .and Parton said  "Uraph." It is said that when  neighbors threw watei on the five  dead_ bodies to preserve their  identity Parton saidT" Dou't~~do  that. Let them burn." He would  not buy a coffin, saying.an old box  was good enough.  One of the sights of the future at  Monterey will be the whale that  came fin to show, himself to the  McKinley party..
