The Inadequacy of the Accommodation  Supplied by  the  Court House  Again Called Attention to.  v.  Mr. .-justice Drake yesterday  morning took up the hearing of the  first criminal case on the docket���  Bex vs. Bell, in which the prisoner  is charged with cattle stealing.  The court was crowded, but the  petit jury list having been called  over aud twelve good men and true  selected, most of those relieved of  service for the day withdrew,  leaving standing room for all interested in the case.  The prisoner was arraigned and  pleaded not guilty, when the following jury was sworn to try the case:  G. Steele, foreman ; S. T. Brockman,  G, Nunn, J. Pool, ' 0. D. J. Christie,  W. J. Caldwell, M. S. Davis, T.  O'Brien, J. Hunter, W. C. McLean  and H.'McPherson.*,...  W.A.Macdonald, K.C., prosecuted  on behalf, of the crown, and the  prisoner was defended by J. P.  Harvey of Port Steele.  The case having been briefly  stated, evidence was adduced in  support of the charge.. Two of the  witnesses were Indians, whose testimony was interpreted. The cattle alleged to have been . stolen bb-  . longed to Messrs. Mcinues, butchers  and ranchers, of Port Steele and  Craubropk, and the Indians were  sent to round up a bunch of tlie  , stock. They pub up for,the night  at the prisoner's house, and one of  them swore to seeing a steer in the  stable when tying up his horse.  Next morning the animal had been  converted into beef. Two of the  cattle in 'the band of the previous  night were missing, aud portions of  the hides* and; flesh were*.'afterward  foundaiv ;the neighborhood of the  prisoner's land. The witnesses were  unable to' identify the portions of  hide and flesh Avith those of the  missing animals.  Police constable Barnes deposed  to having sold two roan cattle to  Mclnnes, and on examining the  remnants of the carcasses subsequently found identified some of  the same as those of the roan cattle. Oii cross-examination, however, witiiess would not swear that  the hoofs or hide examined by him  were those of the animals he had  sold to Mclnnes.  Several witnesses having been examined in corroboration of the evidence as here outlined, the case was  concluded. When the court assembles this morning the legal gentlemen engaged will probably have  something to say before the case is  =liafiUi��d"ttrtlii=jury. -===  During the afternoon the grand  jury presented the following presentment:  To the Honorable Mr. Justico  Drake, Presiding Justice, Nelson  Spring Assize, 1901.  May it please your lordship: We,  the grand jurors of the Nelson'  spring assize, May, 1901, listened  with great interest and attention to  your lordship's remarks at the  opening of "the assize with reference  to the death of our late lamented  queen, and beg to assure you that  the sentiments expressed by you  are those of every oue in the community. Indeed, this being the  first grand jury summoned since  the death of her gracious' majesty  queen Victoria, we deem it fitting  to add our tribute of sorrow to that  of her people every where throughout the empire, aud indeed that of  the whole world. Iu her death the  nation suffered an irretrievable  loss, but there is some consolation  in the. fact that though forever  removed from her people, she lias  left an heritage that must still continue to exercise au influence for  good for all time to come. The  accession to the throne of king  Edward VII gives assurance that  the empire will maintain its splendid administration of justice, the  preservation of the inalienable  rights of the people and the integrity of our public institutions. We  heartily concur in the opinion of  your lordship that recent events in  South Africa have demonstrated  the unity of the empire, and in the  magnificent record made by our  Canadian soldiers we can surely  congratulate ourselves that we are  the worthy sons of brave sires.  Once more it becomes the duty of  a grand jury to draw attention to  the inadequacy of the accommodations supplied by the court house  to meet the increasing requirements  of the people. It is lacking in  rooms for juries and libraries, and  is an endless source of confusion  and vexation to litigants and others  who are required to visit the place  to transact legal or other matters.  On account of bad ventilation it is  a eonstaiit menance to the health  of all, and we would therefore  strongly urge the necessity of a  new court house which would be in  keeping with the progress made by  the city of Nelson.  We have visited the provincial  jail aud find everything there in a  most satisfactory condition. The  working of the institution is carried  out ou a system which is in keeping with the progressive methods  of dealing with tlie criminal, class.  We would, however, recommend a  change in the matter of heating  the jail. Hitherto stoves have been  used for that purpose, but with unsatisfactory results. Hot water  heating, we are led to believe,  would more fully meet the requirements of the jail'in this respect.  We regard it as most unfortunate  that children of tender years are  sometimes committed to the common jail, where they must associate  with hardened criminals, with the  result that in time their reformation becomes very improbable, if  not impossible.  . We called at the general hospital  and a/e pleased to report everything  iu the way of accommodation and  officials as most satisfactory.  In conclusion, we would recommend '..further restrictions as regards  hotel and liquor licenses. We are  of the opinion that those licenses  should be limited to at least one for  every three hundred of population.  Indeed, there seems to be imperative demand for immediate change  in thiVrespeet.  All of which above is respectfully  submitted for your consideration.  Tomorrow Evening's Contest.  Everything points to a lively  contest tomorrow evening when  <?r)ff and Burns meet in their 20-.  round' contest. Both men completed their training yesterday, and  their ten-mile spins and light exercises in the gymnasium left them in  excellent condition. That the meeting will be well patronized is now  assured. Telegrams have been  received reserving seats for 25 of  the contestants' admirers in Greenwood and Phoenix, and from Rossland and Trail upwards of .100 visitors are expected, while the Slocan  points will also send their quota.  Several interesting preliminary  events have been arranged, and  among others Billy Armstrong,  lightweight champion of British  Columbia, will appear. Should tomorrow evening's venture prove a  success financially it is not unlikely  that Gus Ruhlin, who is now  matched to meet Jeffries, will be  induced to visit Nelsou. W. Arm-  .strong,=who=4ias=Friday=evening-s=  contest in hand, has two dates open  for Ruhlin and his bunch of lesser  stars on May 30 and 31, and is only  waiting to ascertain what encouragement Nelson will offer to give it  one bf the dates.  Mining Records.  The following are the mining  transactions recorded yesterday:  Copper King and Robinson Crusoe  transferred from Tom Livingstone  of Hall Siding to Ben Miller. The  property is situated on' Toad  mountain, one mile from Hall  Siding.  Certificates of work were granted  to John A. Benson on the May; to  Louis Taillefer on the Giant Fraction aud Champlain ; to OvidPaulin  on the Windsor; to Ernest Duhr  on the Summit, and to Al Whittet  on the Kootenay Belle.  New locations ��� The Park, five  miles southeast of Nelson, by J. C.  Ryan; Leopold, four miles southeast of Nelson and about two from  the Nelson & Port Sheppard railway, on the tributary of the east  fork of Cottonwood creek, by  Albert Haller; Copper Crown, two  miles from Erie, by D. Fraser.  Grand Lodge I. 0. 0. F.  The Grand Lodge I. O. O. F. .will  meet this year at Nanaimo, and  Kootenay Lodge No. 11 at their  weekly meeting selected A. H.  Clements aud A. G. Shaw as their  representatives. On June 12th the  meeting will be held, aud Dr.  Arthur, as grand chaplain, will also  be with the Nelson delegation. It  is probable that the next grand  lodge meeting will be held at  Nelson, as in this city the Odd  Fellows are strong enough to pull  the string in order..  THE FANCY DRESS CONCERT  A BIG SUCCESS  AT   THE  OPERA  HOUSE.  Gorgeous Garments���Juvenile Genius-  Clever Characters���Parental Patronage���Enthusiasm.  The children's fancy dress concert  at the opera house last night in aid  of the Presbyterian church building  fund secured a large and enthusiastic audience. There were present  the fathers and mothers, the sisters  and brothers, the uncles and aunts,  and all the available relations of  the .clever little performers. The  house was packed, and although  the audience in the main might be  considered somewhat favorably  prejudiced to all that passed before  them, This Tribune representative  was thoroughly unbiasedand hence  can speak as a thoroughly disinterested party.  The programme opened with an  instrumental duet by Miss llachael  and master Campbell Robertson,  which as a juvenile performance  was very creditable.  Lilias Davys, Winnie Campbell,  Gracie Heathcote, Adela Parker,-  Mildred Irvine, Helen McLaughlin,.  Ethel Parker and Lillian Hunter-  appeared to advantage in a clever  little arrangement entitled the  good night drill, introducing the  audience to some of the costumes  of the evening and the clever little  ones so artistically attired.  "The Fairies' Revenge," the next  then on the program, was well  staged and the little performers  had evidently the " cue."' The_.  prompter, if he or she played' a  part, was not heard and not a line  was missed. As the title will suggest, the fairy superstition played  an important part in the plot and  by no means . detracted from it.  The east wasmade up as follows:  Poppy Macdonald, queen; Kenneth  Weir, king; Beatrice Fennel],  princess; Blanchard Johnstone,  prince; Claude Weir, jester; Hazel  Gore, Gera; Lolo Bennett, Annie  Sturgeon and Edna Ellis, ladies in  waiting; Herbert Bird, page; Getae  Macdonald, queen of fairies;- Adela  Parker.Mildred Irvine,Bina Taylor,  Georgie Hume, Gladys McDonald,  Mildred Sharp, Bessie Fennell, Elsie  Tamblyn, Hazel McArthur and  Helen McArthur, fairies.  The little prince is bewitched (in  the plot) by one of the fairies, who  put the whole party in a trance  which the author of "Fairies' Revenge" extends to a calendar year.  When the curtain rises a second  time all the prominent characters  are still in slumber, but a mystic  song and a magic wand brings them  from hypnotic slumbers to a sense"  of active existence. There was one  exception, however, ��� the. infant  prince, and acting on the suggestion  of sleep he was transported inadvertently to the Land of Nod.  When the cue ought to have beeu  taken, the little one was found to  be fast asleep, and it took all the  influence of the fairy court to arouse  it���assisted by the laughter of the  audience. The little fairy tots  acted their parts well, and were it  not for the exuberance of their  relatives of equally-limited summers  seated or strolliripf.j'in the "audience,  adults would have, enjoyed the  scene more thoroughly.  "A Glimpse of the Brownies" was  a very enjoyable feature. All are  familiar with Campbell's creation  of little pictorial characters of the  Brownie specie. They were put  into life form last night by representations as follows;  Wallace Robertson, John Bull;  Douglas Cummins, Crownie; Calvin  Painter, Uncle Sam; Guy Davys,  soldier; Joe Wilson, Irishman; Taffy  Cummins, sailor; Hugh Fletcher,  policeman; Louis Johnstone, Scotchman; Chimmie Cave and Hilton  Hunter, Brownies; Stephen Allen,  lord Roberts; Arthur Gilker, dude.  All the little characters were  good and amusing in the extreme.  If there was a point of more than  ordinary excellence it was scored  by Guy Davys, as the soldier, and  Arthur Gilker as the dude. But all  were excellent iu their respective  parts, and so enthused was the  audience that the Brownies had to  make a second appearance ere the  demand for an encore could be  satisfied.  A   Mother   Goose Party   was a j  more advanced performance., calling j  for greater intelligence than those  who took, part in the preceding  parts would, be capable of. The  caste was as follows: Pearl McGregor, Mother. Goose; Edith McDonald, old woman in shoe; Jessie  Hipperson, Bo Peep; Betty Johnstone, Mary, Mary, Quite Contrary;  Ethel Ritchie, queen of hearts;  Dorothy Gutelius, little red riding-  hood; Flossie Johnstone, Silver-  locks; Ella Dadderi, Snow queen;  Eva McVicar, Goldenlocks; Pauline  Annable, Daffy Dojvu Dilly; Rachel  Robertson, queen in; the parlor; E.  McKay, Miss Muffit(L. Bennett, Maid  in garden; Hazel Gbre, Jill; Audrey  Jackson, doctor: Foster; Ray Jackson, king in counting house; George  Gore, Jack; Harrison Manhart, man  in moon; Fred Lorlhg, Peter Piper;  Percy Grizelle, Kiiave of Hearts;  Ernest Shaw, Jackl-Horner; Harold  Cameron, Boy Blue;. Francis Fletcher, Cinderella; Esther McFarland,  Cinderella's godmother; Annie Sturgeon and Edna Ellis; proud , sisters  of Cinderella; Marjorie Croasdaile,  Red, Rose; Zillah fEnierson, Snow  White. There were specialties  introduced which proved attractive.  On Saturday those: who were prevented by the inclemency of the  weather last uighi can take in a  matinee, when the performance will  be repeated.; The greatest credit is  due to the ladies who trained the  children to such a stage of perfection. /  4n  MARTINELLI IS A CARDINAL  EASTERN  I!

RECEIVED    THE    RED    BERETTA  YESTERDAY.  Impressive Ceremonies of the Catholic  Church Witnessed by Many Distinguished Dignitaries. ���  Baltimore, Maryland, May 8.���-  Sebastian Martiuelli, titular archbishop of Ephesus and cardinal  elect.of the Church of Rome, today  received at the hands of cardinal  Gibbons the red beretta and donned  the robes, which is the second elevation to his new position. The ceremony was performed with all the  pomp and brilliancy usual ;upon  such occasions. It was held in the  venerable cathedral, the first edifice  Of its kind erected upon American  soil and in which the first American  priest and the first American bishop  were ordained.  Among those who witnessed it  were men and women prominent in  every walk of life, diplomats,  educationalists, journalists and  ecclesiastics, the last including half  a score of archbishops and half a  hundred bishops, priests, monks  and seminarians. The initial step  in the ceremony took place in the  palace of the cardinal immediately  prior to that held in the cathedral  and consisted of the transmission  of the beretta to cardinal. Gibbons  by monsignor Marchetti at the  papal ablegate. Brief addresses  were made by both the participants  in this affair. While this was in  progress a procession was formed in  front of Alberta hall a block away  in whicli were ranged in the order  named the Seminarians, priests,  Franciscians and Augustine monks,  the members of the faculty in the  Catholic university in Washington,  "abbots; bishops and' finally archbishops: ' At 10 o'clock they "moved  to the cathedral, where cardinal  Gibbons occupied the throne on the  gospel side of the altar and the  cardinal-elect that upon the opposite side. The papal Ibriefs to  cardinal Gibbons and cardinal-elect  Martiuelli were read then as  follows:  Leo XIII, pope, to our beloved  son, Jaiues GibbonSj cardinal priest  of the holy Roman church, archbishop of Baltimore, health and  apostolic blessing. Having this day  created cardinal of the holy Roman  church our venerable brother Sebastian Martinelli, titular archbishop of Ephesus, we have committed to our beloved sou Francis  Marchetti, one of our private chamberlains, the duty of presenting to  him the red beretta, the second  markjjjMiis new dignity. Mgr.  Marchetti faithfully and diligently  assists cardinal Martinelli in the  apostolic delegation. He will present himself to your eminence in  the performance of his oflice and  will bring you our greetings. We  commend him, intrusted with the  honorable duties of our ablegate,  to your kindness and beg you to  receive him with consideration and  benevolence as befitting, for doing  which we ourselves shall feel duly  grateful to you. As an augury of  heavenly blessing and a sign of our  good will we send you most lovingly iu the Lord the apostolic benediction, Given at St. Peter's,  Rome, under the official seal on tho  15th of April, 1901, and in the 21th  year of our pontificate.  (Signed) Ai.exantikr Voi.pini.  Papal brief to cardinal Martinelli: Our beloved son, health and  apostolic benediction. Although  unworthy, being constituted by the  divine mercy in the sublimity of  the apostolic see, and by virtue of  our oflice, having care of the welfare of the Catholic church, among  our chief solicitudes is that the college of our venerable brothers, the  cardinals of the holy Roman  church, would be kept, brilliant by  most distinguished men, as the dignity of that most splendid order  demands. For this reason we have  determined to inscribe you iu their  number for your piety, your learning, your zeal for the Catholic  faith and your other qualities and  gifts of mind, which leads us to  hope that your ministry will bo of  great use to the church of God.  Since our beloved son Reginald Pius  do Raymond, to whom we had committed the honorable duty of apostolic delegate, has declined it, we  accept  his  refusal and  resolve  to  commit it to Francis Marchetti.audi-  tor of the apostolic delegation in the  United States of North America,  who will represent to you, created  by us a cardinal of the holy Roman  Catholic church, one of the insignia  of this sublime dignity, the red  beretta, so that when it shall have  been conferred on you, having been  raised to the cardiualate dignity,  you must ever stand fearless and  invincible against all dangers of the  church of God, even to the shedding  of your blood, precious in the sight  of the Lord. We wish, however,  that before you receive the beretta  you by all means take the oath to  be given you by the said Francis  Marchetti and that, signed by you,  ��� you send us either through him or  ; through some other person.  Given at St. Peter's,  under the  seal of the Fisherman on  the  15th  day of April, 1901, in the twenty-  fourth year of our pontificate.  (Signed)       Aloisix,  Cardinal Macchi.  Baltimore, May 8.���Monsigneur  Mareheti, upon the conclusion of  the readingof the briefs, advanced  to cardinal Gibbons' throne and delivered to him an address explaining the former's mission. Cardinal  Gibbons responded. Cardinal Gibbons then descended from his  throne and advanced to the front  of the altar/ accompanied by his attendants bearing the beretta. Martinelli rose,. and escorted by the  members of the noble ""guard, and  the papal chamberlains, walked towards cardinal > Gibbons y before  whom he knelt and/bowed his head.  Slowly lifting the beretta from the  silver salver upon which it rested,  cardinal Gibbons unfolded it and  held-it high in order that the congregation might see it. Then  stooping, aud with what seemed to  be a softly murmured prayer, he  placed it upon the head of the cardinal-elect, who rose and advanced  to the front of the altar and spoke  as follows:  "Most eminent and most reverend sir, having been by the kindness of the supreme pontiff made a  member of- the subline college of  ;carninals of the,holy Roman church,  .nothing.-,could,._have . pleased .me  more, than to receive from your  eminence, surrounded by this crowd  of bishops aud illustrious personages, the insignia of this honor and  high dignity.; It rejoices me to-receive these signs of pontifical favor  in this metropolitan see in which  the example of your apostolic zeal  and pastoral care- has been so  bright and has done so much for  the promotion of Catholic interests,  as well as for the furtherance of all  things which aid in the progress  of humanity and the glory of the'  nation.  "But you will permit me to add  another reason for my happiness.  I find it in your continuous and  untiring kindness toward me from  tlie moment in which, by the command of the supreme pontiff I was  placed at the head of the apostolic  delegationi^Fhese=and=other=con-i=  siderations awaken iu me a spirit  of gratitude towards your eminence*  I beg you then to accept the thanks  which I cordially offer you; and  not only to you but to all the illustrious prelates and others who have  come to honor tiiis occasion by  their presence do I offer the expressions of my sincere gratitude.  Meanwhile, most eminent sir, I  pray the great and good God long  to preserve and bless you."  Having concluded the address  the newly made cardinal, who up  to this time had worn tho vestments of an archbishop retired to  tlie inner sanctuary aud in a few  moments returned clad in his  cardinalital robes. Almost immediately afterwards ho divested himself of these and appeared in the  white and gold vestments of . the  mass, in which he was to participate. Assisted by his priests and  deacons he conducted this amid the  breathless attention ' of the vast  audience. The sermon was delivered by archbishop [liyhn of  Philadelphia, after which cardinal  Gibbons pronounced the benediction  aud the ceremony was ended.  Chippewas Object.  St. Cloud, Minnesota, May 8.���It  is said here that more than 300  Chippewas of Pine Point, Twin  lakes and Mull lake have decided to  arm themselves and march around  the lake next Sunday, for the purpose of preventing the removal of  more than 15,000,000 feet of logs  cut under the "Dead and Down  Timber Act" the past season. The  Indians do not accept the government estimate of trespass in cutting  green logs and declare they will  hold out for a fair settlement.  BUFFALO'S MAMMOTH SHOW  IMMENSE  ATTENDANCE AT TL'E  EXPOSITION.  New Novelties Are Eeing Constantly  Suggested and Put Into  Execution.  Buffalo, May 8.���This afternoon's drenching showers had but  little effect on the attendance at  the Pan-American exposition. The  thousands of visitors simply stepped  inside the big buildings and gave  no heed to the rumbling sky. Tens  of thousands can be swallowed up  in these great exhibition palaces  without a sign of crowding. The  exposition is gaining iu popularity.J  A matter of thunder, a splutter of  lightning and a spatter of rain are  no longer enough to keep sightseers '  away. The dust and clay that turn  to mud are fast disappeai ing under  the bricks and as phair. The  rapidity with which this work is  being done is oue of the wonders of -  the exposition. Long stretches of  asphalt fairly grow before the  visitors' eyes, and one week more  will see the last of the pavement  makers. A system of sprinkling  the promenades was inaugurated  today, adding greatly to the com-'  fort of the sightseers. ",-  Another   novel  event 'with" the*  Pan-American      was      announced  today.    It is to be a coaching tour:   _,  nament, starting from N^w York  and     ending    at    the    exposition  grounds.       The   attempt will   be   ���  made   to   break,the   four-in-hand  long distance coaching recoid.  The  distance from New York to Buffalo,  is about  501  miles.    The trip  will *  be made  in  relays, and  the  finish  will be at  the  stadium, where  the  automobile race also will finish.  ' ��� Apprehension, approximating the  dimensions  of a  panic, seized-the-  strange   people   of    the    Midway  today over, a  rumor  that  a decree  had gone forth that all on the Midway must  be  vaccinated.    In  the  absence of Dr. Roswell  Park, medical  director  of   the  exposition,  it  cannot belearned what truth there  is in the reported plan of vaccination.    It is  not believed   by  members of the hospital staff that  any    ,  such step is contemplated.  Dunsmuir' and Maxwell's Dispute.  Vancouver, May 8.���[Special io  The Tribune.]���Premier Dunsmuir  and G. R. Maxwell, M. P., are engaged in a dispute over the statement of the latter that about all  the premier did at Ottawa was to  demand $10,000, not $8000, according to the premier's own story, per  mile subsidy for his own pioposed  railway���on���Vancouver���island���to���-  Cape Scott. The Colonist today  denies the statement, while the  Vancouver Province, heretofore  strongly favoring Maxwell, calls  upon him to confirm the statement  or explain, and contains sarcastic1  references to "Maxwell and the  Mint," the rally cry of the last election.  The McGill university mining  students arrived on a special car  today. They will spend a month  visiting the Kootenay mines, especially Nelson utul Rossland.  A Chinese Defender.  Vancouver, May 8.���[Special to  The Tribune.]���11. Bell-Irving, a  canner, was on the stand nearly all  day before the Oriental commission.  He said the moie Chinamen there  were the better it would be for  white men. Cheap labor made development possible, and the more ;  development there was the more  white men would be engaged. There  were better places, he said, than  British Columbia for common labor.  He thought white men should use  Chinamen as an improved machine  ���a tool with whieh to work to advance himself. He was opposed to  the present poll tax, and he thought  all Chinese should be allowed to  come in.  Young Woman Assaulted.  Leavenworth, Kansas, May S.���-  Miss Ethel Bonnie, daughter of G.  \V. Bonnie, an employee of the  state penitentiary, was struck on  the back of the head by an unknown man, presumably a tramp,  and rendered unconscious, after  which she was assaulted. Search'*  ing parties are scouring the country. Her assailant will probably  be burned at the stake if captured,  ���-j-3  ft  -7f.\  7~:k[  "*��� { 1- J  V 'A  - - ".j,it  ���7 -ST  �����1  "-1-1X  -<;�� ���^���H?**^  THE  TRIBUNE:  NELSON, B.

J,  fa  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  J*  *~0i'  From' the evidence taken be-  , fore the Chinese and Japanese immigration commission at  Vancouver it appears tliat Jap-  aue3e competition is more to be  feared than that of the Chinese.  Should this be the case there is a  long campaign of education before  the white laborers of the Coast before they can hope for any redress,  as premier Laurier has intimated  that no matter what report is received from the commission no  restriction will be placed upon  Japanese immigration. This means  that with respect to Japanese competition the white, laborers of the  province are about ten yeai'3 behind as compared with the progress  they have made in respect to  Chinese immigration or competition:  But if the Japanese, continue to  threaten and the white wage-  earners keep up their agitation they  will win out. It is now generally  conceded that the report of the  present commission Avill result in  the raising of the barrier against  Chinese immigration aud what has  been accomplished in the case of  the Chinese will be accomplished in  the case of the Japanese if their  competition' with white laborers  assumes the same proportions.

Pending a meeting to be held on  Tuesday next, it is likely that the  majority of Nelson's  retail stores  will be closed again'this afternoon.  As pointed but some days ago some  difference of opinion has developed  among the merchants, with respect  to the advisability of closing Thursday afternoons, and in this connection The Tribune has received a  letter from K7"CrBgatbnT=in"=whichr  he deals with the part he played  In the spreading of the Thursday-  closing propaganda, and his views as  ���to   the   veracity   and   commercial  probity of the merchants who now  appear to disagree with him as to  the   advisability   of   closing their  places of business on the afternoons  in question.     In the first place Mr.  Beaton  states   that he alone circulated the Thursday-closing agreement, and that anyone who says he  was induced to sign the same under  false   pretences    deliberately   and  wilfully lies.   This, however, must  be a matter of recollection  on the  part of the merchants  in question  and   Mr.  Beaton, and one   which  scarcely admits of determination by  newspaper controversy.   Prom this  Mr.   Beaton   proceeds to give his  opinion    as    to    the-   commercial  probity of merchants  who,  having  decided to close their stores, subsequently decided to.-open them.   As  tothem he says he would "not be  " inclined to accept a note or check  " signed by auy such individual."  This clearly has no direct bearing  upon the question at issue; nor has  it any more commercial importance  to Nelson than if the merchants in  question expressed their reluctance  to accept the note or check of Mr.  Beaton, since there mightbe achance  of negotiating either issue before  payment was stopped at the bank.  However,    after   having   differed  widely- frota:*tUe: offending   mer  chants in the earlier portion of his  letter, Mr. Beaton' takes common  ground with them and says that he  also is through with the Thursday  closing innovation, and rounds off  his very able communication by  expressing regret that The Tribune  showed itself so lacking in brotherly  feeling as to oppose the early  closing movement; because' some  one on an opposition paper started  it. Were thi3 true Mr. Beaton  would doubtless have room for regret, but T&E Tribune must plead  that he is as far astray in his assay  of its good fellowship as he is of  the veracity and (probity of Nelson's  merchants. ; So far from opposing  the Thursday closing because a  newspaper man originated it, The  Tribune always supposed that the  field in Nelson offered sufficient opportunities for the talents of the  men employed in it, to the exclusion  of all else; and with the end so  nearly in sight The Tribune regrets that Mr. Beaton should have  so   completely   misunderstood    it  Jand^Nelson's representative busi^  ness men.  BALFOUR MAKES A SPEECH  And Boasts Irish Kickers.  London, May 8.���In the absence  of lord Salisbury, A. J. Balfour, the  government leader, was the .princi-.  pal speaker at the annual meeting.  today in the royal hall of the grand  habitation of the Primrose league.  An enormous audience filled the  hall. After singing "God Save the  King" the duchess of Marlborough  presented champion banners to the  habitations which had secured the |  greater number of new members.  Mr. Balfour in a long speech traversed a wide field and taveled well-  beaten paths in his discussion of  the Irish and South African questions.  "Although little was heard of  home rule at the last election," said  Mr. Balfour, "the Nationalists have  now started a new method intended  to bore the country into granting  home rule. Every animal from  man downwards used the weapons  Providence put at its disposal, and  there might be some Nationalists in  the house of commons endowed by  nature with the aptitude necessary to make the best use of the  new method of Avar scare, but I  cannot think they would sink so  low as to employ measures which  might be irritating, but which were  utterly abortive in their efl'ect on  the great issues of the empire."  Referring to the war, Mr. Balfour  declared that the hardest pro-Boer  sympathizers   must   now  be   con-,  vineed that the resolution of the  British was unalterable, and that  the constancy and determination of  the people yesterday found a most  conclusive and admirable expression in the by-elections at Monmouth, the very heart of the coal  district, which erroneously supposed itself to have been singled  out for harsh financial treatment  on account of the burdens of the  war.    A Locomotive Trust.  New York, May S.���The Journal  of Commerce says the plans for a  consolidation of locomotive manufacturers are rapidly assuming definite shape. W. Seward Webb and  George II. Longbottom have been  elected directors of the International Power Company. Mr.  Lorigbottom was formerly president  of the Rogers locomotive works at  Paterson, New Jersey.- It is said  that a new company will be formed,  which will acquire nearly all the  locomotive building plants in the  country, except the Baldwin locomotive works.  Avenged Her Mother.  St. Louis, May 8.���Gustav Baare,  bailiff of the St. Louis schoolboarcl  and ex-representative iu the state  legislature, was shot and killed at  his home last night by his daughter  Ida, aged 20, who then turned the  revolver upon herself, inflicting a  wound from which she died in a  few minutes. Both were shot  through the head. - The action of  the young woman was premeditated,  as was shown by a letter which 3he  left. In it she said that the  frequent insults offered her mother  by her father became unbearable,  aud that she had resolved to kill  him and then herself. Mr. Baare  was taking a nap when he was  killed.     .���     ..      -"    ���'���������>.  Opposed to American Trusts.  Chicago, May 8.���"If the great  trusts in this country encroach on  European markets to the detriment  of European manufacturers I predict a combination of the commercial countries of Europe to raise  tariffs on American goods to  almost prohibitive figures." So  spoke Jules Siegfried, Prance's minister of industry, commerce and  the colonies in the cabinet of Ribot  in 1892 and 1893, who is at present  in this city. "There is but one  logical solution of the present situation," continued Mr. Siegfried,  "and that is the signing of a fair  and equitable reciprocity treaty  between the different nations."

Berkley Crilley, foreman at the  Nettie L. mine, near Ferguson, is  paying Nelson a visit. Rawhiding  operations having ceased with tlie  opening of spring the shipping of  ore has temporarily ceased. From  25 to .'30 men were at work during  the winter and some S00 tons of ore  shipper], which netted the company,  known as the Great "Western, handsome profits. Tlie material is exceptionally rich in silver, gold and  lead. It has to bo rawhided about  two miles, when it is put on sleighs  and carried some IS miles, to  Thompson's landing. Here it is  transferred'to. steamer and again  rehandled and put on the rail for  the Trail smelter. The freight ami  treatment charges average $30 per  ton, yet after meeting these tlie  company have a clear profit of $102  per ton. None of the members are  as yet very wealthy men so that  the mine has had to pay for itself  all through and little scientific development work has been done as a  consequence. However, they have  sunk to a depth of 150 feet, and 200  feet more of a drive and the completion ot their present tunnel will  increase this depth to 1100 feet.  There is very little machinery on  the ground, but this season it is the  intention to install an up-to-date  plant. Two miles oc a wagon road  will enable them to work all tlte  year round, and this will be built  at once. As soon as the railway is  in operation an aerial tramway will  be put in, which will enable the  property to be worked  at low cost.  Work has been resumed on the  Silver Cup, a neighboring property,  where they have a 150-foot tunnel  run.in rich ore.  On the Triune last July JLiid  brothers took a working lease, and  have since shipped some 150 tons of  ore which netted them $200 per ton.  Work has also been resumed on  the Maybe, where they are driving  a 200-foot tunnel, and on several  other properties preparations are  being made for active operations.  Mr.  Crilley -is  sanguine  that as  soon  as   the   Lardeau   railway  is  available     there     will    be    great;  activity in mining in that  district.

Last night one of Mrs. Enfield's  large glass windows was broken in  by accident. A couple of young  fellows with an outside ticket for  tho opera house amused themselves  with a fisticuff show, a la Burns  and GofT, but a well planted lefter  put one of the amateur pugilists  through the window, playing havoc  with the millinery and the glass.  Parisian millinery was mixed up  with fragments of glass aud pretty  spring bonnets with putty. The  offenders decamped before the  police appeared on the scene, aud  tlie only members of the crowd of  spectators left were the three  Indian witnesses in the cattle stealing case, who could not name the  offenders aiid declared the incident  "potlatch."

Thi3 will be  commenced at once and then all  will be in readiness for tlie foundation. Contractor LeMoine- is expected back in Nelson in the course  of a few weeks when building operations will begin- in earnest and  continue to completion. There is a  rumor current that the intention is  to secure the granite required from  Calgary because it is more easily  woiked than the local material-.  This, however, is a- point: yet to be  decided. .-' ���'��� * ���   ��� ',   . ���'���  Everybody Is Glad.  " Mayor Fletcher has received an  acknowledgment from Hon. A. G.

It last year realized  the sum of $23,000. This fund was  at first a purely foreign missionary  one, but not so now, as home demands are too great, and it is needed  and a great deal more for the  carrying on of the army operations  in the Dominion of Canada. The  many homes for the unfortunate  and little children are an ever increasing source of expenditure.
