KELSOK, B. a, ��� WEDNESDAY MORNING; MAY 8, 1901  PRICE ITVE CENTS  NELSON  ASSIZES   OPENED  ONLY TWO CRIMINAL CASES ON  THE DOCKET PRESENTED.  The Hearing of Which Will Be Commenced Today���Murder and  .  Cattle Stealing.  A court of assize, nisi priuf, oyer  and terminer, and general jail  delivery was opened in Nelson yesterday by Mr. justice Drake, when  the following were sworn iu as a  grand jury: T. Criddle, foreman;  H. It. Bellamy, A. G. Gamble, F.  ��� Irvine, G. Kydd, H. B. Macdonell,  N. T. MeLeod, 0. G. Miller, R. Robertson, W. P. Tierney, W. J. Wil-  "  sou and John.Deane.  His lordship, addressing tho jury,  said that this was the' first grand  jury called together in Nelson  under their new king and ruler and  since the death of her gracious  majesty queen Victoria, whose  beneficent reign had made her  loved and respected in every quarter of her vast empire and throughout the civilized world; aud in no  quarter of the empire was the late  sovereign more respected than iu  British Columbia. He hoped that  loyalty would ever characterize the  people of this - western portion of  the empire, and that ifc would be as  conspicuous under the. rule of  Edward VII as it was while Victoria occupied the throne.  His lordship referred to the war  in South Africa, now happily drawing to a close, and to the havoc it'  ' has wrought ' in many homes  throughout , the united empire.  Canada had suffered her full share  , of this loss, and might well feel  proud of the heroism displayed by  her sons, whose' achievements any  nation .might well feel proud of.  "Although we may grieve for those  ' who have laid down, their lives in"  the cause of the empire," ~add*ed his'  lorddhip,: "the incident" shows  that, .-British subjects are British  subjects the world over, and are  ever ready to "respond to the call to  duty and patriotism and serve  under tbe flag which is ever ac  cepted as the emblem of liberty  aud peace."  His lordship complimented the  jury on the fact thafc there were  but two criminal cases to go before -  them.' One was for cattle stealing,  the scene of the crime being the  neighborhood of Craubrqok. A  couple of cattle had been stolen  from a rancher there' and portions  of th6" carcasses found under circumstances which would lead to.  thb suspicion that the man accused  of the crime was the guilty-,person  'The evidence was largely circum-  ���s tan tialrbu if snclrasri tfwas ifc'wonld -  i>e presented to the jury, and if  they believed that a prima facia  ��ase had been- made out it was  their duty to find a true bill and  leave the case in the hands of a.  petit jury,  The second casa was more serious,  being one of murder���the effect of  %vhat appeared to be a drunken  spree. They would have to satisfy  themselves that a prima facia case  was made out, and on this point it  was necessary that at least -seven  of their number should agree. His  lordship briefly = reviewed the  evidence as it would bo presented  and left the, case in tho hands of  the jury.  The jury retired, and after a  brief absence returned true bills in  each case.  While the graud jury were out  his lordship heard arguments in the  case of McMillan vs. Sandilands.  The case has been before the court  on previous occasions, and was last  adjourned so as to allow of Thomas  Leo Peel being made a party to the  suit. The last heard of Peel was  ��� that he was in Mexico, aud ib was  contended by W. A. Macdonald,  K-.C, tha,t every effort had been  made to have him brought into  court. Mr. Macdonald asked to  have the case further postponed.  The motion was opposed and decision was reserved.  The court adjourned until 10  o'clock this morning, when the  .criminal cases will be taken up.  Work in Chambers.

Ten Missionaries Confined.  ; Berlin, May 7.���In L the reichstag today baron von Hodenberg,  the Guelph leader, interpellated the  government on what steps had been  taken to secure the release of the  German missionaries now held  prisoners by the British in South  Africa. He averred that ten  missionaries were confined in Pretoria and that there was not the  slightest charge against them and  that their property had been seized.  Baron von Reichsoff, the foreign  secretary, said he knew of only  two cases where the German missionaries had been imprisoned by  the British. One of these missionaries, it was alleged, had an understanding with the Boers and at the  j instance of the German embassy he I  was paroled. .The second, missionary thus imprisoned was-accused  of agitating in the interests of the  Boers, and. ho had been released  through the efforts of the German  consul. ! ���  Baron von Reichoff referred to  the refugee camps as "a kind of-  imprisonraent ' affecting whole  classes of the population.*' He  declared that the British authorities assigned military exigencies as  reasons for their measures, but that  their procedure had in many  instances involved unnecessary  hardships and^r worked injuries  which might have been averted.  A general debate on the interpellation followed. Dr. Bacheu,  leader of the. centrists, said:  "Christian Englishmen have been^  able to - reconcile it with their  medium of, dignity not even to  spare the missions. This wrong  must be redressed."'  Sharkey Lost?;Another Battle.  ��� ft.  Cripple .

Berlin, May 7.���The National  Zeitung publishes a statement evidently inspired regarding the withdrawal from the province,of Chi Li.  The withdrawal* it appears, will be  under count Von! Waldersee's command, no nation proceeding alone.  The first step will be a note sent to  the Chinese commissioners naming  the total indemnity. !Jf.China gives  a written pledge nofpayment the  greater portion of the foreign troops  will be withdrawu, but a sufficient  number will remain until, the indemnity question is settled.

THE  SEAFARERS  There will be no labor trouble in  Montana this summer. President  McDonald of the federated body of  miners emphatically denies the rumors of strikes, and says the present outlook is more' harmonious  than at any period during the past  ten years. -   -  There are 500 cases of smallpox  scattered through the province of  Ontario, and the secretary of the  provincial board of health says that  with the increased travel of the  summer it will probably be found  impossible to cheek the spread of  the disease, as all the neighboring  states are more or less troubled  with it.   The Laurier government has instituted a pension system for the  members of the permanent force of  the Dominion. To earn it a man  must serve twenty years, but if he  leaves the force through disability  he may be pensioned at fifteen  years; The pension list is small7  but there is every reason to believe  that it will grow.

SiX; hundred doctors in Ontario  have been put on the -.black list by  the medical council of that province.

The grocers of the city held a  meeting last evening to consider  matters connected with the early  closing in the evenings and the  Thursday afternoon half holiday.  The object of the meeting was to  arrive at some definite understand-  . ing, it being understood that one  firm of grocers  intended  to  break  . away from the ..ear^y., closing each  evening,- which others .proposed to  meet by keeping open on Thursday  ' afternoon.

The prospective delegate was educated at  St. Bonaventure college in Allegheny county, New York, an institution founded by the Franciscans in 1859. Father Falconio was  one of the first students who was  ordained there in 1809 by the late  bishop Timon and afterwards bo-  came president of the college.  Thence he went to Newfoundland  as a missionary and after serving  for some time as vicar-general of  the diocese, he was called to Rome,  where he rose to the highest offices  of his order. His brilliancy as a  scholar, and especially his profound  knowledge of church polity, led in  later years to his appointment as  papal delegate to the Dominion, of  Canada. Mgr. Falconio is excellently fitted for the suggested mission and would be acceptable to the  American hierarchy.  Kootenay Deserves Consideration.  Itossland World.

He made the following  reference to tho present condition  of the order: "While we havo just  caiue for congratulation aud rejoicing that our increase in numerical  strength during the past year i?  without parallel in our history, I  find cause for greater rejoicing that  a spiiic truly fraternal pervades  and animates the entire fraternity.  The vestal fires upon the altars of  Freemasonry have been well  guarded and maintained, and the  craft in love and unity have been  pursuing their labors unvexed and  undisquieted by wars or tumors of  wars, steadily going forward in the  accomplishment of the objects of  our fraternity."  New York, May 7.���The routine  reports of regular committees were  read and adopted, and committees  for the conduct of the work of the  session appointed. Owing to the  fact that there were no contestants  for grand officers this year but little  outside of the routine work is to be  expected. The meeting was adjourned until tomorrow after the  Appointment' of committees. The  chief feature of the meeting tomorrow will be the election of grand  officers and the appointment; of  legislative and executive committees for the ensuing year.  Troop Ship Ashore.

It seems that while the  Maine was still in service as a hospital ship Mr. Baker gave orders  thafc the flag should be surrendered  to no ono without an order from  himself.  The officer in charge of tho ship  a few days later sent it to lady  Randolph upon her request. He  was dismissed for disobedience, and  Mr. Baker requested lady Randolph  to return the flag to "him, which  she, in spite of more importune requests and demands has failed to do.  Lady Randolph claims that the  flag i9 her own, but has intimated  her willingness to send ifc to the  United States government .to be  placed as a relic in some national  museum.     Morgan's' Schemes. -  Nkw York, May 7.���J. P. Morgan  remains an ogre for the sensational  British press, says the Tribune's  London correspondent, and Mr.  Carnegie's forecasts of the development of American industrial resources are printed in the largest  Lype. The consolidation of the  railway and shipping interests of  the Atlantic and Pacific seaboards,  wifch the possibility that one capitalist can fix through rates and  ocean transportation, is now- a  stock theme with financial writers  in England, who display remarkable  credulity in accepting elastic statements of the ulterior purposes of  American multi-millionaires. At  tlio same time they deplore English  inability to form counter com  binatious. It is reported that Mr.  Morgan is having two steamers  built exclusively for first-class passengers between New York and  England and on a scale of magnificence exceeding anything hitherto  anticipated.  The Cup Challenger.  London, May 7,���The Shamrock  Tf lay afc^ller^ioorings^t^da^to=al5=  low her crew to tauten her rigging,  stretched by the trial spins, and  alter her running gear. The mainsail is not considered quite satifac-  tory and orders to supply another  have been given which will probably be used the next time she goes  out. Captains . Sycamore and  Wringe speak highly of the new  boat, but Sycamore is a little cautious. He says' it would be a mistake to gauge a day's sailing like  yesterday, when nothing was intended but an informal trial. Neither of them had been sent along  at full speed. From captain Sycamore's remarks it is considered that  ho considered the cup challenger,  had ii good deal in hand.  Nicaraguan Possibilities  Nkw York, May 7.���It is understood that the engineers who have  been making test borings aud surveys for a route for .the Nicaraguan  canal, some of whom have just arrived here from Greytown, believe  that a canal across Nicaragua costing less than $25,000,000 is possible.  The work would include about fifty  miles of embanking and the cutting  of rock for eighteen miles from lake  Nicaragua to the Pacific ocean.  The total length of the route is 181  miles. The highest ridge which it  would be necessary to cut through  is slightly more than 300 feet high.  Great care has been taken to avoid  sand.   English Miners in Trouble.
