NELSON, B. C, WEDNESDAY MORNING, MAY 15,  1901  PRICE FIVE CENTS  BOOM ON IN HALL MINES  REPORT   OF   THE   RICH   STRIKE  CONFIRMED.  Ore Assays 120 Ounces Silver and 17  Per Cent Copper and Stock  Begins to Climb Up.  The news that the Hall Mining  and Smelting Company now has a  richer body of ore in the Silver  King .mine than at any former  period in its history has been  verified by tho London oflice of  the company, and to the publication  of this fact is due the pheuominal  jump in Hall Mines upon the stock  exchange. This ore body has been  encountered iii what is known as  the south vein, on No. 0 level. Ib  is eight feet wide, and assays across  the face 120 ounces silver and 17  per cent copper. The existence of  this ore body was disclosed some  ���time ago by diamond drill borings,  ibuc its extent could then be only  -.surmised.  Just previous to encountering  this rich body of ore the directors  of the company, as hinted ab during  ���the last.meeting, decided to call up  the last shilling remaining- unpaid  upon the company's pound shares,  bub before the notices of the call  could be posted the news was received by cable of the big find.  This enabled the company to attach  ii small slip to the call whioh  furnishes the most pleasant reading  that shareholders in either the  present company or its predecessor  have. had. And if reasonable expectations are realized, Hall Mines,  after falling to zero, may go higher  than ever before, the advance of  the past few weeks being insignificant to that which would be  warranted should tlie present fir.d  maintain its extent and values.  The manner in which Hall Mines  .shares have been climbing up since  ./���tho-- reorganization- has been most  ���encouraging. When the first company went into liquidation its stock  was quoted on tho exchange at  Is. (3d , but it was merely a nominal  quotation since thero were no dealings whatever iu the stock. Willi  tho reorganization holders of stock  in the old company wero offered  ���share per share in the new company, las. paid up, with one shilling  call on application, and another  shilling on allotment. The ' new  stock was then started ou the exchange with a quotation of 2s. 0.1.,  aud from this it rose gradually with  the development of the property  /until early in April ib ranged from  4s. 9d. to 5s. 3d. Then came rumors,  of tho new strike and "the stock began to rise again, the latest quo-  TWtibTfs"-receivTsU^ihr^NeJsoir-- being"  lis. 0d., and although the local  representatives of the company  have little to say their confidence"  warrants the belief that the stock  has only started to climb.  This will be good news to the  jpeople of Nelsou, but their satisfaction will probably be but  .���secondary to that of captain* Gilford,  who has charge of the development  of the property and .who' from the  first expressed his intention to make  a miue out of what the majority of  the people regarded as an abandoned property.  Will Crowd Out Cattlemen.  C. W. West has returned from a  trip to Princeton. He looks upon  this as the most promising section  of the interior. He says all indications point to plenty of coal and  copper, and he proposes to take up  land and stay with their development. The rush of people into the  new district will probably cause  trouble for the cattlemen already  in there, since it will create, a demand for land, much of which has  been fenced off by the cattlemen  for grazing purposes. So long as  there was no demand for the land  they were left undisturbed, but it  ���will be different from now on.  Nelson Made a Separate District.  The government has made Nelson a separate  assessment district,  .and before leaving Victoria John  Houston, M. P. P., had a promise  from the minister of finance that  Harry Wright, mining recorder at  Nelsou, would be gazetted assessor  ��� and collector lor the district. For  +,he last two years Nelson has been  'attached to  Rossland for financial  assessment aud collection purposes,  aud now, although designated as a  separate district, it is attached to  Slocan, with E. E. Ohipnidn of  Kaslo as assessor and collector.  This is an absurd arrangement, and  the member for Nelson riding lost  no time in calling the attention of  the government to the necessity of  giving each riding credit for all the  revenue collected in the riding.  MERCHANTS DON'T AGREE  New Salvation Army Barracks.  Tlie local corps of the Salvation  Army has decided to undertake the  work" of constructing a new barracks this summer, and as the  Army's property is within the fire  limits ib means the erection of a  brick building. "The preliminary  work���that of passing the hat���  has been undertaken, and circulars  are being sent out by adjutant McGill soliciting contributions.  Hume Hotel May be Enlarged.  J. Fred Hume, ex-minister of  mines, will be in Nelson iu a week  or ten days. , He says..that on his  arrival it will be determined  whether the Hume hotel will be enlarged. The intention is to build a  brick addition ou the Ward street  front.  McKinley in Frisco.  San Francisco, May 14.���Presidont McKinley made his official  entry into this city, the objective  point"of his. tour, late this afternoon. After being formally welcomed by mayor J. D. Plielan, he  was escorted through the principal  streets attended by a military and  naval turnout. Ho had a1( public  reception tonight in the large hall  of the Market street ferry depot.  Friend of the Poor Suicides.  New York, May 14.���Excessive  zeal and industry among the poor,  her friends declare, was the cause  of the suicide of Mrs. Edith Thomas,  a gifted writer, who shot herself  through the heart in her office at  the branch of the University settlement, of which she was manager.  Among her popular books were  "Your Money or Your Life," "Cross  Keys" and "A Modern Rosalind."  A TRIBUTE TO FOREIGNERS  From General Gazelee.  London, May 11.���A dispatch  from general Gazelee, the British  commander ab Pekin, reviewing the  operations in China from August  14th to January 17bh has been  gazetted. "I wish to take this  opportunity," he said, "of paying  tribute to some of the foreign  officers with whom the British have  been associated by force of circumstances. This contingent has been  more with the American aud  Japanese than with "those of the  other powers and in consequence  of their close co-operation with us  ^11i=tlreii^^Teh^to^Pekih^"I^lvave=  good reason for particularizing  these forces among our allies.  General Chaffee and general baron  Yamaguehi, who respectively commanded the United States  forces and the imperial Japanese contingent, have beeu  most loyal in all their relatious  with me aud I may say the same  of general Wilson of the United  States forces and general Fukus-  hima, chief of staff of the Japanese,  while among the many officers with  whom we have been closely associated, I desire to mention the  following : Colonel Dickmau, major  Mills, captain Grote Hutchesou and  major Waller, Uuited States  marines on the staff of the United  States contingent-"  General Gazelee favorably mentioned briefly several Japanese,  Russians, Fienchfc"' Germans and  Italians in succeeding paragraphs.  He also alluded to lieutenant tJaus-  sen of the First Bengal Lancers  having been specially brought to  his notice by general Chaffee and  lieutenant-colonel Wint for carrying off an American trooper who  had been unhorsed during a reconnaissance, August 15th, under a  heavy fire.  Al Weinig Won.  IIotSprings, Arkansas, May 14.���  One of the hardest- fought battles  ever witnessed in the local arena  took place tonight at Whiting Park  between Al Weinig, the ex-bicycle  rider, and Jira Scanlan. In the  seventh round two or three blows  in rapid succession upon Scaulan's  chin made him a. punching bag for  Weinig, placing him completely at  his mercy aud the referee declared  the Buffalo boy the winner:  THEY MEET TO DISCUSS  THURSDAY CLOSING.  A Majority Vote Is Recorded in Favor  of the Holiday  but Much Opposition Is Encountered.  The meeting of the retail merchants of Nelson, "which was held  in the board of trade rooms last  evening to consider the matter of  the Thursday .closing, developed  considerable difference of opinion  as' to the desirability ~of~ closing  their places of business on "the  afternoon in question, and although  a good majority recorded their  votes in favor of the Thursday  closing as ib stands, it is not unlikely that the finish of tho movement is in sight. The meeting was  fairly representative of the retail  trade of the. city, and there was  also a strong turn-out of the clerks,  who applauded the Thursday closing speakers vigorously. Mr. C. E.  Miller of Wallace & Miller was  called to the chair, and T. J. Scanlan acted as Fecretary.  Every effort was made to biing  out the sense of the meeting, and  no merchant was prevented from  speaking as often as the, spirit  moved him. It was a sort of an experience meeting and tlie discussion  showed that a serious mistake had  been made in launching the movement before the merchants had au  opportunity "of considering the  question among themselves. The  discussion disclosed the fact that  several were iu favor of the closing  arrangement as it stood; -several  others thought the movement  should not -have commenced until  July; a considerable number expressed themselves as in favor of  closing on Saturday, afternoon instead of Thursday afternoon; while  upwards of.a .dozen were- opposed  to the observance of any half holiday during the week which involved the closing of their places of  business.  Taken in lines of trade the hardware busiuess, while not fully represented, was divided, and so widely so that there is not much chance  of effecting any arrangement.  Hamilton Byers of the Byers Hardware Compauy said he considered  Saturday afternoon the better day  for the half holiday. Thursday  closiiig so interfered with his business that he could not observe tho  day no matter what arrangement  the other merchants came to.  ��� The majority of the grocers present favored the Thursday closjng  arrangement, T. J. Scanlan making  several vigorous speeches in support  "ofTt^ClifiOIorrison --ofTVlorrison"  & Caldwell opposed it, however,  and one other grocer said that while  he favored it he wpukLnot close  unless all .grocers'-'closed. lie knew  of one grocer'that had-declined to  sign the agreement, and ^unless he  could be brought in Hue he too  would keep open.  The druggists were evidently  opposed to ir, bub there were but  two of them "preseut. W* F.  Teetzel was pronounced in his opposition aud introduced the motion to  rescind the Thursday, closing arrangement. p/v.Lam'dht was- also  opposed to the arrangement as it  StOOd. .:"  In the dry goods-and clothing  business there was almost an even  break, Messrs. Miller, Kerr and  Weir being strongly in favor while  Messrs. Ferland, O'Reilly and Madson were opposed. The Hudson's  Bay Company's representatives  voted in favor of the Thursday;  closing, and F. Irvirio & Co. were  not represented.  *���'' ���">:���*.  Of the jewelers Jacob Dover  stoutly opposed the Thursday closing, but said he would go with the  crowd. J. II. Brown, of Brown  Bros., favored Saturday .instead of  Thursday for the half holiday, and  the Walker and Patenaude votes  were in favor of the arrangement  as it stood.  Ed Traves had things his own  way as the representative of the  butchers, and he voted in line with  several spirited speeches whicli ho  made in favor of closing at 1 o'clock  ou Thursday afternoon.  From the discussion something  like a close vote might have been  expected, but it did not turn out so.  An amendment was moved to Mr.  Teetzel's motion declaring in favor  of the Thursday closing as it stood,  and the first vote was taken upon  this and carried by a good majority.  An attempt was then made to make  the matter unanimous, but somo  who had spoken against had left iu  the meantime, and several others  proceeded to get out as quickly as  they could. The motion to make  the matter unanimous was carried,  but several voted against this as  well.  It is not the purpose of the  Thursday-closing element to close  their places of business on the  Thursday before May 24th, but as  several merchants announce that  they will remain open on Thursday  next it is au open question whether  the whole thing will not fall  through.     When Miners Certificates Lapse.  All free miners' certificates will  lapse on Friday, May 31st. This  applies to companies .certificates as  well as individual certificates, and  the holders thereof will save themselves trouble aiid expense by securing renewals before the close of the  month.  GOVERNMENT   GIN- MILLS  STRIKERS MAKE IT LIVELY  TRACTION     COMPANYS    FUTILE  EFFORT   TO   RUN   CARS.     '  Motormen    Attacked,    Cars   Ditched  :     and Thousands of Excited Men  Swarm Albany's Streets.  FAVORED BY THE METHODIST  CONFERENCE.  Believe   They Would   Eliminate   the  Treating System and Lead to  Total Prohibition.  The consideration of the temperance question was the chief business before, the Methodist conference yesterday? Regarding government control and management of  the liquor traffic a- resolution was  passed' reciting, that government  management of the traffic, would-  be appreciated as a step leading toward total prohibition, as ib was  .believed the introduction of such a,  system would eliminate, the raoue-)  tary interest in the traffic and also  do away with the treating systom,  thus bringing about a very great  decrease in the consumption of  liquor. Iu taking this course, however, the conference made it clear  that it was not retreating from its  former position in favor of total  prohibibion by reaffirming by resolution their loyalty to prohibitory  enactments. The temperance resolutions covered, a wide field, calling  upon all Methodist, societies tp cooperate with the various temperance societies of the province, protesting against newspapers running  whisky "readers" and urging a crusade against the cigarette habit.  Dr. Carman reported for the  publishing house of Methodism in  Toronto.    The report wasjjieartily.  received by the conference.  ; A motion was passed asking that  the next general conference of  Canadabe held in Winnipeg.  '���" The report of the educational  committee, asking that Revs. G. K.  Bradshaw, AV. G. Mahon, Robert  Hughes and D. W. Scott be permitted to attend college was unanimously adopted.  The conference is calling iipon all  sister conferences to unite for the  publication of a universal Methodist  hymn book, to be used by all the  Methodist churches of the world.  As Methodism has nearly 8,000,000  members, and many million adherents, the publishing.of such a book  would meet with a great demand.  The Sabbath school work received  very much attention. It was felt  that this was the most important  of all church work. The ministers  decided that at least once a month  they would preach a special sermon  to the children of their congregations.       Epworth League- Conference,  In the evening- the Epworth  League and Sunday school conference anniversary was held. Rev.  Johu Robson was chairman, and  Rev. R. N.Powell of Enderby was  the preacher. T. Parkinson, representing the Endeavour Union of  Nelson, and F. M. Chadburne, president of the Provincial Endeavor  Union, were on the platform and  took part in the meeting.  Rev. li. N. Powell took his text  from Ezekiel xliii, 4, and his sermon constituted an appeal to the  young people of  the  congregation.  Rev. R. F. Sbillman of Fernie  followed the sermon with an address ou the influence of parents in  the Sunday school.  Albany, New York, May 14.���  The   United     Traction   Company  started   out   its first car   shortly  after 10 o'clock this morning. When  the doors of the car barn opened a  motorman on the front of the. car  stared   stolidly  into   the faces  of  over 2000 men, women and children.  A frightful roar went up of "Scabs,"  "Scabs," but the motorman turned  the switch and the car slowly moved  out towards the main track.   Two  policemen mounted the platform by  the motorman and two others took  positions   on   the   rear   platform.  Then the mounted and foot policemen   drove   the   crowd  back and  amid jeers and hoots the car moved  along   the   down-town   route.   At  every   street   corner    there    were  special    policemen     and   ��� regular  policemen.   There were no pay passengers on the car and all the windows had been removed.   One half  hour after tho first car left, the car  barn   doors   opened   and   another  motorman faced the  crowd, which  was now iu a perfect frenzy.    This  time the  police  could  nob  control  the mob. With a rush thoy boarded  tho car.  The dense crowd pushed the men  iu front forward until they were on  the platform. The motorman was  struck several times ou the head  until, bleeding and defenseless, he  relinquished his grip of the handles.  On the platform- two men pulled  the trolley pole down and bent it  until it broke. The%car. had obtained some momentum and striking  the switch-went off in to'the gutter.  The police could do nothing with  the crowd and they wrecked the  car. Finally when they found that  they had accomplished their purpose they withdrew with cheers.  The police arrested four of them.  The car which got safely out of the  barn for the first trip made several  trips up and down town, not carrying any passengers. It was hooted  at, but no violence occurred. Nearly  a dozen of the non-union men the  company brought from out of town  deserted after the attack on the  second car. The indications are  that if the company persists in  running the cars the guard will  have^to be called out. The crew of  the first car run out deserted the  car on Quail street, the car making  two trips. The wires are down and  cars overturned and the  traific  on  "the roadis entirely suspendedr-  When night closed over Albany  it sent thousands of weary mei> to  their homes, bub those thousands  were replaced by as many more,  who took up tho vigil to prevent  the United Tracoion men fiom  running their electric cars with  non-union men. The darkness  brought some confidence that thero  would be no attempt before morning to move cars, for the two attempts made in broad daylight had  brought bloodshed and riob on such  a scale that the local police aided  by scores of deputies and hired  Pinkerton meu had been unable to  successfully compete with. One  man lies in a hospital wounded almost unto death, one of the two  cai's they attempted to run lies in  the gutter of a street not two  blocks from the power house wreck-j  ed and the trolley wires are cut in  several places, practically crippling  the road. Near the car house are  thousands of men, women and children wrought up. to a* pitch of frenzy  that bodes ill if the doors of the  car house open to let out another  car.  Inside the car house, afraid to  even look out the grated windows,  are about 75 non-union men that  the company expects to use in running the cars. Early this morning  there were about 120 of them, but  at nightfall, sickened by the sight  of their blood-covered comrades  brought back from tho first attempt to run the cars, and urged  on by the strikers and their wives,  05 of them had deserted and joined  the ranks of the strikers. The men  claim that they were brought here  under a misapprehension and that  thoy supposed they were going to  Philadelphia.   They were  taken at  night by ferry to Jersey City and  then left on a West Shore train,  but believed they were on the  Pennsylvania railroad. Some of  them believed that they were going  to be engaged on the Albany &  Schenectady railroad.  At 3:15 o'clock in the afternoon  the police practically admitted that  they were powerless to take care of  the large crowds on the streot if  cars were run and general manager  McNamara immediately called up  geueral Oliver in command of tho  Third Brigade for protection. He  said: "We intend to run out cars  if it takes the entire National Guard  of New York state to protect us."  After a conference general Oliver  issued an order assembling at their  armory tonight the Tenth Battalion  of Albany, comprising four companies of the National Guard of infantry and the Third Signal Corps  .mounted. General Oliver said that  he would warn the rest of the Third  Brigade to be in readiness for a call.  The troops that general Oliver has  at his command includes about  2000 men. Major-general Roe is  here and will attend to the troops  in person.  Midway and Vernon Railway.  Greenwood, May 14.���[Special  to The Tribune.]���James Kerr and  Robert Wood returned from Victoria on Monday's train. They  were successful in their mission to  obtain a charter for the Midway  & Vernon railway, carrying a subsidy of $4000 .per mile for 140  miles. Kerr stated that surveys  and locations would be immediately  proceeded with and that by fall  the actual building would be commenced. The road, starts from  Vernon, following south down the  Okanagan valley to Mission creek,  thence making a loop to its head,  where the head waters of the west  fork of the. Kettle river are met;  thence following the.meauderings  of its junction with the. Kettle  river and on east down the river to  Midway. The proposed road will  open iip a virgin agricultural and  mining district. It will also be the  means of shortening the run between here and the ' coast some 24  hours.  EASTERN CANADIAN NEWS  BENEFITS OF THE BOER WAR  FROM LORD SALISBURY'S POINT  OF VIEW.  England Has   Exhibited  Her  Latent  Powers and Taught the World  a Lesson.  PICTON, Ontario, 14.���John W.  McLean, publisher of the Times  and a prominent Liberal, died on  Sunday after a lingering illness.

The loss is estimated  between $110,000 ��ud $115,000. Insurance about $S0,00O. Origin of  fire unknown.  HAGERSVILLE, Ontario, 14.���  Joseph Harkons ��� was killed by a  Michigan Central railway train  while attempting, it is supposed, to  jump off the train near a lane leading towards his home on Saturday  evening. The body was found in a  mangled condition Sunday morning.  American Brigands.  Manila, May 14.���Detectives and  the police have: been looking up a  band of American brigands who  have been operating in the province  of Pampanga, north of and not far  from Manila. George Raymond,  Ulrich Rogers and Oscar Mush-  miller have been captured and  Andrew Martin, Peter Heise, George  Muhn and two others are still being  pursued. This baud committed  outrages, murder and rape at  Bacolara, Pampanga province, and  in that vicinity and Sunday last  they killed Henry Dow, an American. This band sometimes represented themselves as American deserters and at others as American  soldiers. George Raymond wore  the uniform of a captain. Raymond  and Martin were formerly policemen in Manila.  Secretary Gage's Wife 111.  Washington, May 14.���Mrs.  Gage, wife of secretary of the treasury Gage, who has been ill for some  time, is reported to be in a serious  condition, and while her friends  have not given up hope they ate  very anxious as to the outcome of  her illness.  London, May 14.���Minister Salisbury, who has just returned from  France, made a speech in London  last night in which he reviewed the  benefits which he believed had resulted   from   the   war    in    South  Africa,     despite   the    lamentable  sacrifices England had been called  upon to make.    One of the greatest  benefits, he said, was the display of  the latent powers of the empire.  Ib had dissipated the notion  which  had spread throughout the  world3  that Great Britain's star  had set,  that she would never  fight again  and that any adversary only needed  to press hardly aud boldly enough  to compel her to yield.   Now it was  seen   that   she   could    copy    the  brilliant examples of the past.    The  empire was undoubtedly safer and  the   cause   of peace   more  secure.  There was now no power in the  Avorld but knew that if it defied the  might of England it would defy one1"  of   the   most   formidable   enemies  that might possibly be encountered.  Another benefit was that the war  had  revealed the existence for a  loug time of a conspiracy to oust ,  the   British   from    South   Africa",\  which, if it had  not been  encoun-. ,  tered now, would have strengthened.,  and grown more dangerous.   , ,'.  The   British   had   thereby been  taught   a  lesson   regarding- home  rule for  Ireland.    When they had -  fought in   the   past   against Irish  home   rule they had not   realized  what sort of a fight could be main- '  tained   by   a   hostile   government  against its suzerain.   If-the home-  rule bill of 1893 had been passed *  and an Irish government established  at Dublin it was  not very extravagant to assume, in view of the exhibitions in the houso of commons  and elewhere, that it would have '  been a hostile government.    What  then would  have  beeu Great Britain's position if she had not only to _  meet  the  South African  republics  but, concuriently, a hostile Irelaud?  There wero   good   reasons,   therefore, for  resisting  home  rule,  but  since the South African experiences  had taught the power and capacity .  of modern  instruments of  war, his  hearers  knew that if they allowed  hostile Irish leaders unlimited scope  to make warlike  preparations they  would have, if engaged in war with  another power, to begin again also  the task of conquering Ireland.  --,'tt-  A '���$  "..���$8  -site  - ��*&2  = ;**  A%g&  . "-i-wffi  SPfl  A3*  -   ~?l  Mil  "Il   Heir totheThroueof-Japan. =���---���  Yokohama, May 3, via Victoria,  B. C, May 11.���The great event of  an heir to the throne, and tho joy  of the whole empire at the announcement of the fact, evinces the  extiaordinary character of the bond  which unites the people to the imperial family. It is now little less  than a year since the marriage of  the crown prince was celebrated  with such manifestations of public  joy as had never before been known  among this eminently festive people, and now that the nation's hope  is fulfilled in the birth of an infanb  prince, the joy is unbounded and  there have been many touchiug expressions of sentiments of loyalty  pervading the entire realm. Attention is drawn to the remarkable  contrast thu3 exemplified between  Russia and this country. In the  former where there exists practically the same almost idolatrous  regard for the throne, founded on  very much the same traditions, the  emperor personally commanding  high admiration, lives in constant  fear of assassination. In Japan, on  the contrary, no conceivable  conditions could even suggest  to the wildest imagination any  such outcome.  The financial crisis in the groat  manufacturing cityof Osaka, which  had assumed a very threatening  character, has been tided over by  the bank of Japan comiug to the  rescue of some of the smaller banks.  Loss by Fire,  St. Petersburg, May 14.���Six  hundred and fifty-two houses, including 100 shops, have been  destroyed by fire at Brest  in the province of Warsaw.

PIANOS TO  KENT.  THOMSON  STATIONERY  Oo.  Baker Street.  NELSON, II C.  Limited.  The men who are always grumbling because of the changes in the  Mineral'Act will have to look, up  some other grievance, seeing that,  there has been one session of the  legislature at which the Act has  not been changed. They will  probably fall back on that long-  ��� standing grievance: "The inherent  ���wickedness of Joe Martin."  A time-card will have to be  issued and scattered broadcast in  order to inform the outside world  as to the days on which business  can be transacted in- Nelson. So  far two days have been disposed of,  namely, Sundays and Thursdays.  On Sundays, only those who pray  should come to Nelson; and on  Thursdays, only those who play.  of the business men now in office,  that they should quit before it is  too late, for they cannot all be  made agents-general.  The St. Andrew's Society puts  in a disclaimer. The society is not  responsible for the official acts of  the Sunday-observance members of  the city council. The society is  strictly social in its aims, and what  can be more sociable that sitting on  a greensward with a friendly neighbor discussing tho fine points of an  "athletic^^e^on^^Sunday^after5"  noon.   If the railway policy of the Dunsmuir government results in tlie  building of any ono of theUve railways named iu tho Railway Subsidy Act, it will have proved the  wisdom of the stand taken for a return of something for what is given.  On the other hand, if not a mile is  built, the people will know that  they have not lost anything by  reckless legislation.  According to the Greenwood  Miner, the total shipments of ore  from the mines in Boundary district siuee July 1st of last -year  amount to 210,568 tons, every pound  of which was smelted in British  Columbia. The value, of . this ore  was approximately $2,000,000, 75  per cent of which was disbursed for  wages at mines and smelters and  on railways and at coke ovens and  coal mines.  Nelson has had little of tho dull-,  ness in a business way that has at  different times fallen to the lot of  other towns in Kootenay, and her  merchants should be careful not to  make much of the present temporary depression. The man with "a  poor mouth" soon becomes tiresome to a chance . acquaintance  and no one wants him for a constant companion. Be cheerful even  if you are to be hung.  Finance Minister Turner will  probably hand in his resignation  this week, as he intends to take a  trip through the interior before  leaving for the old country, where  he is to be agent-general of the province for the remainder of his days.  After fifteen years pf political service and office-holding, Mr. Turner  retires from business a poor man.  This is an object le=son to business  men who have an ambition -for  politics, and is a warning to some  There is so little interest taken  iu politics, that the local Grits are  unable to get a hundred stalwarts  to attend a meeting to elect officers  of the Liberal Association of Nelson  for the ensuing year. It is said the  Smith Cr.rtis-James Wilks Liberal-  Labor party are laying pipe to capture both the local Liberal and  Labor party organizations in Kootenay and Boundary, aiming to become a power in the next provincial  election; but as that election is  =likely-to-be=three-years=hencei=bo.th=  Curtis and Wilks will be "has  beens" before the nominations are  made.  However much "Joe" Martin of  Vancouver may be disposed to help  J. C." Brown of New Westminster  to obtain a seat in the Dunsmuir  cabinet, he is not looking for any  such position for himself. Brown  made a personal sacrifice when he  resigned the oflice of postmaster of  New Westminster in order to help  "Joe" out in his efforts to secure a  representative ministry, aud "Joe,"  it is said, does not forget his friends  when he can aid them. He may be  aiding Brown, but ho is not seeking  any such honors for himself. While  The Trihune has no special meaus  of securing information as to who  will be the successor of the present  finance minister, it will hazard  the guess that a cabinet position  will be offered to and be accepted  by J. P. Garden of Vancouver. The  invitation, however, will not be  sent with any too good a grace by  the premier, but he will be overruled by the politicians whom he has  as his advisers.  swallowed an alleged interview in  w Inch J. Pierpont Morgan is quoted  as declaring that "he and his associates would not only swamp British  trade but would paralyze German  competition as well." Tiie reports  of an Austro-German retaliatory  movement, therefore, finds much  favor among the continental newspapers, though there is little evidence that it has yet acquired any  oflicial backing of a practical  character. The opinion here is that  German officials are using the point  of American competition tis a battle  cry to bring the Americans into  line on the canal bill and "that it is  also tin ployed to emphasize the  profitableness of the commercial  friendship of Germany and Russia.  FEVERISH  STOCITmARKET  Serious Smash Likely.  .London, May 14.���According to  present plans J. P. Morgan will not  go to America just now.  The situation on  the stock  exchange was the most remarkable  known as far as Americans  were  concerned.    There was absolutely  no   trading,   the arbitrage people  not   dealing  and  quotations  were  entirely nominal.      The optimism  with which yesterday's settlement  of Northern Pacific was hailed disappeared in the general realization  that it was only temporary.   Steps  are being taken to form an arbitration  committee   to    relieve   stockbrokers of their difficulties in connection with the Northern Pacific  a flair.    A representative of one of  the largest  houses said:     "Unless  Morgan   aud   Kuhn,  Loeb  &   Co.  accept  some  such  arbitration  nothing can save the London market  from a serious smash. A temporary  arrangement,   it  is   believed,  may  overrun the  next settlement,  but  not much longer.    It is thought-the  arbitrators might so fix prices as to  prevent serious, failures and. meet  the views of Mr. Morgan'and Kuhn,  Loeb & Co."  New York, May 14..���After opening weak and listless, the local  stock market before noon today  sustained another set back, the declines amounting in some cases to  as niuch as seven points. There was  no great pressure to sell, but the  absence of buying demand made  continually lo\yei* prices until a  slight rally at noon.  Honoring a Strathcona.

LONDON, May 14.���While tlie  German-Austrian proposals for an  anti-American combination have  not yet assumed anythiug like  definite form, the idea is attracting  considerable attention in Great  Britain, especially on the continent,  where the newspapers have already ,  work. The undertaking led to some  favorable criticism on the part of  the imperial officer?, general .Duller,  himself personally thanking the  lieutenant for the work and congratulating him on his success.  After the war, for tliis act, lord  Roberts, acting on Buller's recommendation, conferred the D. S. O.  Leckie has made application to the'  Ottawa military .^authorities for  permission to raise a mounted infantry corps in the Boundary. The  application has received the approval of tlie minister of militia,  and if tlie plans are carried out  Greenwood will be made a recruiting station for this district.  A Chinese Blue Book.  "JjOndon,   May. .14.���The   foreign  office has issued a Chinese blue book  bringing   iip   the   negotiations  to  December.    The cable mistake by  which Mr. Conger was  instructed  to agree to the conditions imposed  on  China being  irrevocable forms  the basis for almost a scoi'e  of dispatches.    One  of these  from lord  Lansdowne   to    lord    Pauncefote,  dated December   18, contains the  following:   " Mr.   Choate   told  me  there was doubt as to whether the  president had the right without an  act   of   congress   to accept words  whicli   might   have   tlie  effect of  making it incumbent on the United  States   government   to   remain in  permanent   occupation of Chinese  territory.

The Tribune is the only mining  paper in Kootenay that gets the  full Associated Press reports, and it  is the only paper iu Nelson that  gets any Associated Press reports.  Hence it is the only daily paper  that has any circulation to speak  of in all that vast region of wliich  Nelson is the commercial center.  The Osier vs. Moore case is the  next on the list at the supreme  court sittings. This is a suit to recover 10 per cent commission upon  the sale of the California mineral  claim near- Nelson. The sale was  put through upon a basis of $50,000  in stock, and ,$3000 cash, but work  upon the property has been suspended.   ,A'A7  J.

The synod of the diocese of Kootenay will meet in Nelson on Tuesday aud Wednesday, the 18th and  19th of June, this date having been  approved by bishop Dart' of the  Westminster diocese. There is  little chance of a bishop being  selected at the approaching synod,  as before this is done the salary requirements have to be met. These  require either the raising of an endowment fund of $40,000 or the  guarantee of a salary of $2500 a*  year. Nelson has been chosen as  the see city, but ib is open to Rossland. to meet the salary requirements and disp'ace Nelsou. if its  people are so" inclined.  GARDEN   TOOLS.  PAINTS, OILS AND CLASS.

The suit of the Nelson Furniture  Company to recover fire losses in  connection with the company's  premises, occupied the whole of yesterday's sitting of the supreme  court. The chief evidence submitted  was that of the insurance company's  appraiser, who fixed the loss at  $1500.42, being something like $2500  less than the loss claimed by the  insured.
