C, MONDAY MORNING, MAY 27,  1901  PRICE FIVE CENTS  NELSON'S 1901 ASSESSMENT  SHOWS CONSIDERABLE GAINS IN  IMPROVEMENTS.  Light Valuations and Low Tax Bates  Will Continue to Go Hand  in Hand Here.  J. K. Strachan, city assessor, has  about completed his assessment for  the year 1901; and the roll will  probably go before the members of  the city council at their meeting  this evening. It will show a total  assessment _ of something like  $2,291,975, of whicli lands will  represent $1,230,8-10 and improvements $1,001,135. Of these values  the East ward contributes $1,291,-  330, made up of lands $092,000 and  improvements $599,2-10: and the  West ward $1,000,012, made up of  hinds $53S,750 andcimprovenients  -���$���101,890.  Tho assessor this year has interfered very little with the land  values as returned last year, the  increase shown being almost entirely covered in the new buildings  wliich have gone up since the last  roll was completed, the increased  value of improvements being returned at close upon a quarter of a  million dollars. Ln arriving at these  assessments, however, the practice  i.-i to put land and improvements in  at about 75 per cent of their actual  v;ihie, In this Nelson differs from  most other cities where the boi rowing limits have been reached, and  in order to overcome such restrictions over-valuations have been re;  sorted to. Nelson, /however,7 not  only has an assessment based upon  7J�� pei' cent of proporty values, but  it also has the lowest tax rate of any  "city in llritish Columbia. The rates  last year upon a- value basis  of 75 per cent were Hi mills upon  real estate and 2*r miljs upon 50 per  cent of the improvements, or cq-ial.  to.If mills upon the improvements  s assessed on the basis of 75 per cent  of their valuation.  Another fact worth noting is that  in all other cities in-British Columbia taxation is levied upon land  values and upon 50 per cent of the  improvement viiluations, whereas  ' in Nelson tlie improvements are  only taxed for the purpose of paying interest aud provding sinking funds . for the- $50,000  worth of debentures issued during the first year ��� of the  city's corporate existence. This  tax, however, is a decreasing one as  the increase in valuations reduces  the rate. The reason for thei existence of this tax upon improvements  is found in the fact that inniaking  the loan of 1S97 the city council  =covenauted=to=Taise=annually=so=  much money for the payment of  interest and sinking funds upon till  the ratable "property," whicli, of  course, was construed to include  improvements; but in all subsequent loans the bylaws provide for  the Vaising of the necessary niopey  upon .the lands only. Were it not  for this covenant the improvements  in Nelson would be altogether  exempt from taxation.  The manner in which this improvement exemption in Nelson  works out may be cited as follows :  Take a piece of real estate worth  $5000 upon wliich a building worth  $20,000 has boen erected. This  gives a total valuation of $25,000  upon which iu all other cities of  Uritish Columbia the owner would  pay taxes, after allowing, the 50 per  cent exemption on improvements,  upon a basis of $15,000, whereas in  Nelson tlie. real estate would  pay a tax rate, of less than 12  mills aud tho improvements a rate  of less than two mills upon their  actual valuation.  Another insfcauce of the lightness  of the/taxation in Nelson is  evidenced by the traders tax of $10  per. year. Were such traders iu  Winnipeg and occupying stores  worth $100 per month rental they  would be required to pay a tax of  one twelfth of their rental, which  would mean a tax of $100 instead  ol' the tax of $10 imposed in  Nelson.   Rates Must Be Lowered.  Nrcw York, May 20.-^A. Bostel-  iivm, general superintendent of the  Trans-Siberian railway's Asiastic  division and tho 19 steamships connected with the railway service in  aud around Port Arthur, has had  an important conference with E. H. |  Harriman. Mr. Bostelman represents the Russian government in a  semi-official capacity and his mission in New York is understood to  be to promote amicable traffic  arrangements with the Union  Pacific lines and the steamship interests controlled by the Union  Pacific. Mr. Bostelman said last  night that in his opinion there was  little hope for a speedy development of American commerce between San Francisco and Chinese  ports until the freight rate of $11 a  ton is lowered.  Bodies Recovered.  London, May 20. ��� Thirty-two  bodies, some of them terribly mutilated, have been recovered at the  Universal colliery in Senghenydd,  in the Rhonda valley, where an explosion occurred last Saturday.  King Edward has sent a message of  deep sympathy with the families of  the victims and of admiration of  the gallantry of the rescuers.  NEW  CASE OF SMALLPOX  KILLED AND MANY INJURED  By an Electric Car Collision at Albany.  PATIENT HAILS FROM WINNIPEG  THIS TIME.  He Is Suspicious That He Has   the  Disease and Hunts un the City  Health  Officer.  Nelson has a new case of smallpox. Tho patient is Isaac Plemming  of Winnipeg, who. ariived in tho  city about a week ago. Mr. Flem-  ming, who has been living in a  shack in the east ward, became suspicious yesterday that lie was suffering from smallpox, and started  out to locate the city health officer.  He called at the fire hall in search  of the proper authority, but was  kept at a safe distance and directed  to Dr. LaBau's office.  When seen by Dr. LaBau the  patient ���'received -every assurance,  that his fears were well founded  and he was started at once to The  city pest house, and J. Clayton,  who nursed patient Bertram, was  at once installed as nurse.  Although the disease had broken  out on tho patient, it is too early to  say whether or not he is suffering  from a virulent type, but from the  action of the patient iu calling upon  tlie health officer the chance of any  spread of the disease has been  very greatly minimized. The patient took the precaution, when he  started for the health officer, to  hide the key of his shack so that no  one could enter it, and as soon as it  can be located by the health officer  it will.be thoroughly fumigated.  It is evident that the patient,  iFlemmiug,^ontracted~tlie~disease~iu"  a railway coach, as he has been  traveling almost constantly since  the end of April, coming to Nelson  from Winnipeg. This circumstance  emphasizes the importance of having thorough fumigation of all railway carriages passing through infected districts, as owing to the  prevalence of the disease throughout the east the chances for its introduction into this province are  very good indeed.

Madrid, May 20.���Tho elections  to the senate have resulted approximately in the return of 120  ministerialists and 30 members of  the opposition.  LONDON, Ontario, 20.���Hon.  David Mills sails for England next  Saturday, to be absent about two  months. He goes as a delegate in  connection with an enlarged judicial committee of the privy council.  Albany, May 20.���Electric cars  racing for a switch, while running  in opposite directions at the rate of  40 miles an hour, cost five lives this  afternoon by a terrific collision,  while over forty prominent people  injured, some fatally and others  seriously, filled the accident wards  of the various hospitals, with the  possibility of other deaths before  morning. The lobby of the local  postoffice is filled with dead and  wounded. Hysterical women and  children looking for relatives and  friends,surgeons administering temporary relief and ambulances racing through the city taking the  wounded to hospitals were the  early intimations of the most terrible electric-line accident ever heard  of iu this locality. The scene of the  accident was a poiut about two  miles out of East Greenbush on the  line of the Albany and Hudson railway, a just completed road of the  third-rail pattern. Tho point where  the cars met on the single track  was at a sharp curve, and so fast  were both running and so sudden'  the collision that tlie motorman  never had time to put on the brakes  before southbound  car No.  22 had  i  gone clean through car No. 17.  One motorman; was pinioned up  against the smashed front of the  southbound caf; with both legs  severed and killed instantly, while  the other oueTMived but a few  minutes.  Fully 120 men, women and  children formed a huge struggling,  shrieking pyramid - mixed with  blood, detached portions of human  bodies and the, .wreckage of the  ears. Some of the more slightly injured of the men extricated themselves from the quivering mass and  began to take people out of .the  rear ends of the two cars and  almost everyone'was extricated in  this way. The scene was heartrending. The few women and  children who had escaped injury  and death were hysterical and  added their cries to the shrieks of  the dying. Men with broken arms,  and jaws, dislocated joints and  bloody heads and faces tried to  assist others who were more helpless and there were many cases of  bravery.  Help had been summoned from  East Greenbuslrand vicinity and in  a short time the bruised mass of  humanity, with the mutilated dead  for gruesome and silent company,  were loaded on extra cars and taken  to Albany. Three ambulances and  physicians had? been summoned  and   the   postoffice  turned into a  morgue and hospital. As fast as  the physicians could fix up the  wounded they were taken to their  homes and to the hospitals in carriages or hospital ambulances.  With the motormen killed, it  was hard to get at the real cause of  the accident, but it is pretty well  determined that it was caused by  an attempt of a south-bound car  to reach a second switch instead of  waiting for the north-bound at the  first siding.  The cars weigh 15 tons each and  are the largest electric cars built,  but so frightful was the crash that  both cars were torn almost to  splinters. Both cars were filled  with Sunday pleasure-seekers returning from the newly open recreation grounds that the new railway had just opened. The southbound car left Albany at 4:30 and  the accident occurred at 5 o'clock.  The cars on the line were running  at switch heads ways; that is, if a  car had a siding switch it was supposed to wait until another going  in the opposite direction passed.  Among the passengers on the  southbound car was deputy superintendent Howard J. Rogers of the  state department of' public instruction and his family. He was accompanied by Mrs. Rogers and their  young son and daughter, all of  whom are slightly injured, with the  exception of the daughter.  ALL WILL BE PAID IN FULL  FOR  SUPPLIES   FURNISHED  CONTRACTOR HAWLEY.  Dividend of  Fifty Per Cent Will Be  Declared Shortly and the Remainder in Jnly.  J. A. Turner, government agent,  has received instructions from Victoria to proceed with the distribution of the government vote for  the relief of the creditors of contractor Hawley, who made an assignment while constructing the  Molly Gibson wagon road.  Contractor Hawley owed Nelson merchants some $3780, and  during      the      first      session     of  the present legislature Messrs.  Houston and Green secured a relief yote of $1805 as a government grant to the wagon road, tlie  samo to be used in settling the con-  "tractor's^^blig^  merchants on account of stores. At  the last session of the legislature  Mr. Houston secured an additional  grant of $1500 for the same purpose. .These two accounts, together  with the $415 received from the  salo of Henley's supplies, will  realize an amouut sufficient to pay  the contractor's creditors about 100  cents on the dollar.  There was an understanding with  respect to this $415, which set out  that in event of auy aid beiug extended by the provincial government the $415 would be turned over  to the owners of the Molly Gibson  mine. This agreement, however,  the provincial government refuses  to recognize and it is a condition  precedent to the payment of any  money on the part of the government that this sum is turned  .over to ;- ib to assist in  defraying the contractor's creditors for stores supplied. As the  contractor's creditors stand to gain  $3305 by putting up the $415 it is  not unlikely that some arrangement  will be arrived at even if they have  to make the amount good to the  Molly Gibson people afterwards.  The matter must be fixed up within  the next few days, however, as tho  first vote of $1805 will lapse with  the end of June. A meeting of the  creditors will probably be held  today to discuss the matter.  When the matter of the $415 is  satisfactorily arranged government  agent Turner will declare a dividend  of 50 per cent upon the claims, and  the remainder when the vote of the  recent session becomes available in  July.   Railway Employees' Demands.  Bdkkalo, May 20.���At a meeting  bf the International Association of  Machinists today'a. committee representing the machinists, boiler-  makers, blacksmiths, pipe fitters,  tinsmiths and painters employed by  the New York Central railway in  this city, drew up the following  propositions to be presented to the  railroad company: UA permanent  nine hour day to be established. 2.  A 10 per cent increase to be paid on  the present wages. 3. All other  conditions being satisfactory to-re--  main as they are. 4. This to take  effect June 1st, 1901. About 1300  men are employed in the Central  shops here.  EASTERN CANADIAN NEWS  Wired m Brief.  SIMCOE, Ontario, 20.-^-Mrs. Robert Stewart's clothes caught fire  while preparing dinner yesterday.  She was so badly burned she will  die.  MONTREAL, 20.���W.J. Poupore,  ex-M.   P.   of    Pontiac,   has     been  awarded   a   $300,000   contract lor  -building   a   wharf   and    dredging  Sorel harbor. '  MONTREAL, May 20.���President  Shaughnessy returned this^ m-on*"  =ii!^f rom^Eoird oiTrTTerTlSn iedTil V  stories of the amalgamation of the  C. P. It. with other roads. Discussing the fast Atlantic service, he  said the price of materials made  the inauguration of the service at  the present time inopportune. The  C. P. It. intended adding a fourth  Empress to the Pacific line, but the  same reasons might delay the carrying out of the project.  TORONTO, 25.���Borden, opposition leader, arrived here this morning and with Mrs, Borden are  guests of Mr. and Mrs. E. B. Osier.  This afternoon they attended the  Jockey Club races, and tonight a  reception was held at the Osier residence. Monday night Mr. Borden  addresses a mass meeting in Massey  Hall. Tuesday he goes to St. Catherines, speaking at Niagara Falls in  the evening. He spends a week addressing meetings iu Ontario, aud  then returns to Halifax.  Murdered for His Money.  Marshfihji.d, Ohio, May 20.���  News has just reached here of the  discovery near Coquille City of tho  body of E. E. Daly, who had evidently been murdered for his  money. Jesse .''McQuagg, while  walking on the Vail road track at  Cedar Point, saw a man digging in  the brush, and an investigation  later led to the discovery of  Daly's body buried just below the  surface with a bullet hole in tho  back of the head. Daly came from  Blackwell, O. T., and had been  working several months for a Coos  river farmer. He was paid off on  Thursday, receiving $170. No  money was found on the body. It is  thought that the identity of the  murderer is known and the sheriff  is on his trail.  A FRENZIED ACTOR'S DEED  INEZ LEONARD SHOT AND KILLED  BT HER LOVER.  Edgar Beaucleigh, While Drunk, Com  ~, ���mits a Murder and -Takes  His Own Life.  Key Wrst, Florida, May 20.���A  terrible tragedy was enacted here  last night at the cottage occupied  by the D'Ormond Fuller Opera  Company, as a result of which Miss  Inez. Leonard and Edgar Beaucleigh,  two members of the compauy, are  dead. The latter had been drinking, o About 2:30 o'clock the members of the company were startled  by the report of a ��� revolver and  Inez, screamed: "Help; help; I  am dying." Then another shot  rang out. The members of the  company rushed into the room and  foundlMIs* Leonardin a dying con-  dition. She was shot through the  left sido just below the heart, the  bullet coming out on the right side.  Beaucleigh was lying on the opposite side of the room, his face  covered with blood. Ho was dead.  An examination showed that he  had shot himself through the  mouth and the bullet remained in  his head. A 48-caliber Martini rifle  and two empty shells were mute  evidence of the tragedy. The rifle  stained with blood was lying by  Beaucleigh.  When questioned as to the cause  of the tragedy, manager D'Ormond  said it was a mystery to every  member of the company. Inez  Leonard and Beaucleigh wero always very affectionate toward each  other. Tliey were engaged and expected to be married as soon as  they went north. There had been  no quarrel or anything approaching a quarrel between them.  Edgar Beaucleigh was born in  Chicago and was adopted by Miss  Fuller, one of the company, when  four years of age. He was raised  and educated inkier her care. .. Inez  Leonard was'tfrbni Philadelphia.  Her mother and father are both on  the stage.  Michigan Cranks.  Grand Rapids, Michigan, May  20. ��� The American Transvaal  League's annual meeting last night  reelected their officers. The treasurer's report showed that $729 had  been disbursed by the national society for the benefit of widows and  orphans of Boer soldiers, and $304  sent direct to Kruger. In his annual address president Walker said:  "The situation is not so desperate  for the two republica as it seemed  in September of last year. Every  day's continuance of the "present  struggle will help to cure England's  war fever and sober her judgment  and clarify her reason and her conscience. Chamberlain has already  gone into eclipse." He urged a  continuance of the work for the  success of the Boers, and for the relief of the widows and orphans.  A Desperate Negro.  Macon, Georgia, May 20.���A  special to the Telegraph from Flo-  villa, Georgia, says: "This afternoon chief of police Matt Willard,  while advancing on a desperate  negro, Joseph Walton, was shot  down and seriously wounded.  Policeman Willard was going to  place the negro under arrest aud  was shot without warning before  he could draw his own revolver.  Sheriff Crawford with a'J posse aud  bloodhounds are on the negro's  trail, and if caught he will be dealt  with as usual by the infuriated  mob.  DEFY AMERICAN AUTHORITY  GUERRILLA WARFARE WANING  BOER   MOVEMENTS LACKING IN  SPIRIT AND METHOD.  GERMAN    OFFICERS    AND    SOLDIERS  GET   BELLIGERENT.  Foreign   Troops   Preparing   to   Leave  Pekin���Palaces Being Prepared  for   Emperor's   Return.  Prkin, May 20.���The United  States legation guard has had its  first trouble. ^The legation street is  being repaired near the legation  and an American sentry was placed  at the point with orders to direct  people around by a' side street.  Everybody obeyed with the exception of the Germans, both officers  and soldiers of which have caused  the American- sentries , much  trouble.- One of the German oflicers drew his sword and charged  an-American soldier,' who~ brought  his bayonet to "charge," whereupon  the officer desisted.' Subsequently  a German soldier charged past the  sentry, who fired, hitting another  German soldier near the German  legation a quarter of a mile off.  This, fortunately, was only a light  flesh wound. The sentry has been  placed under arrest and major  Robertson has instituted an investigation.  The attitudo of Dr. Mumm Von  Schwartzenstein, the foreign minister representing the civilians, and  count Von Waldersee, representing  the military, as well as that of  other officials, has been particularly  friendly towards the Americans,  which makes all the more pronounced tho unfriendly . feeling  evinced by a majority of the German oflicers and men. This un-  friendliness^is^attributed^to^the-  American attitude in retaining control with the legation guard of ono  entrance to tho forbidden city,  which the Germans consider a reflection upon their national honesty.  Today's meeting of the ministers  ot the powers was devoted ' to  closing up details, of business independent of the indemnity question, although the military authorities of the various powers seem to  consider a settlement in sight, as  general preparations are being  made for the evacuation of Pekin  in the early future.  Two German marine battalions  have loft forTsingTau, and British  transports have been ordered.  Count von Waldersee expects to  leave about the middle of June.  Emperor Kwang Su has instructed  agents to prepare the palaces for  occupation by the court as the  troops depart.  Washington, May |2G.���Officials  here attach no importance to the  disturbances between Germans and  an American sentinel at Pekin.  Such affairs, while regrettable, it is  said, are to be expected, especially  where the difference in the language' spoken might easily lead to a  misunderstanding of orders. No  report of the incident has been  received at the war department.  A Convoy Attacked.  London, May 20.���The war office  received the following from lord  Kitchener, dated Pretoria, May  20th: "A superior force of Boars  made a determined attack on a convoy between Entersdorp and Pot-  chei dorp, May 23rd, but were driven  off. Our loss was four killed and  thirty wounded. The convoy arrived in safety."  Sir .Alfred Milner's Reception by Mr.  Chamberlain ���King   Edward Hon-   .  ors the High Commissioner.  New York, May 26.���In a dispatch dated London,  1 a. m., I. N.  Ford, correspondent   of   the   New  York Tribune,   says:   Lord  Kitchener's bulletins are now infrequent,  and few sidelights are thrown by  the press dispatches upou the guerrilla warfare which is still flickering  in South Africa.     A second combined movement of six columns is  in progress for the clearance of the  Eastern Transvaal and South Dela-  goa railway, but the results aro not  yet known apart from  the last report of the capture of cattle.   Two  Boer forces are reported in this district, one under Botha, near Carolina, and  the other  iu the mountains   near Majuba.     Tiie western  and northern districts of the Trans-;  vaal are quieter,  but  remnants  of  commandoes are still lurking among  the hills.      The Orange  River Colony is tolerably free from  raiders,  but there is a fresh  concentration  of guerrillas in  the Zuurberg district of Cape   Colony.     Eight or;  more small  commandoes under as  many Boer chiefs aro operating in"  Cape   Colony, 'and   are successful  chiefly in eluding pursuit by mounted British columns.      A British patrol   is snapped   up    once   in ��� ,a'-  while, but otherwise  the"Boers accomplish little.    While the warfare  is tedious, it is  conducted  without  signs of exasperation on the British side.      Endurance  matches-endurance.    - - Lord Milner's Visit.- --  . The only prominent Liberal who  attended the ministerial reception  to lord Milner yesterday was Mr.  Fowler. His presence as the guest  of Mr. Chamberlain will probably  bo a fresh cause of offence to tha  advanced Liberals, who hnve  already sought to punish him "for  criticising their tactics in parlfti-  ment.  Lord Rosebery was excluded by  private mourning. Lord Milner  talks quietly about the work remaining to be done in South Africa  and shows no signs of despondency.  His friends find him graver and  broader than before he undertook  the responsibility of government in  South Africa. They predict that  he will remain high commissioner  about eight months and succeed  lord=Gurzon=ultimateIy=as^viceroyi-  of India.  His promotion to the peerage  furnishes a striking contrnst to the  neglect from which sir Bur tie Frere  suffered. The abandonment of the  high commissioner by the government this time was impossible,  when he remained under fire of  enemies of the empire at home and  abroad. He earned by his nrduous  labor every honor of the government. Consequently, tho king's  recognition yesterday at Mr. Chamberlain's luncheon.  Tho reconstruction policy is a  complex problem, but unless all  signs fail it will be left in the hands  of two men most competent to deal  with it���Mr. Chamberlain and sir  Alfred Milner���who will now have  a prolonged opportunity for going  over every detail of the process.  Miscellaneous Notes.  The king and queen will spend  Whitsunday at Windsor, where the  private apartments in the castle  have been refurnished and redecorated. Though the yachting accident to which the king was exposed  has been exaggerated, it has been  urged by the ministers that as the  duke of Cornwall is out of England,  he should bo more prudent in  future.  The melancholy work of searching for victims of the colliery explosion in Wales has been continued  during the last twenty-four hours  under exceptional difficulties. The  quest was apparently hopeless, as  no sounds were heard from the  passages under grouud, but strenuous and heroic exertions were made  to reach the chamber of the entombed miners and put an end to  the awful suspense of those living  in'agony waiting for their recovery.  i-'m  ���i0i  - rftl  "���w**?|  ���'70'  Xh-.m  "31  ,*>'��.

R.  Shed,  president of the Smeltermen's Union  of Northport, it would seem ,that  the   managers   of the   smelter at  Northport are deliberately attempting to break up the Union.    If this  is a statement of fact, the smelter-  men will have the   sympathy of  public opinion. Among other statements, the letter to The Tribune:  says:    "The Union.has brought no  " grievance  to   the   door    of   the  " smelting   company.     They have  " not asked for increased pay, nor  " shorter hours, nor  the  discharge  " of any foreman* superintendent  " or manager. " The  company has  " not served any notice of intention  " to decrease the pay of the. men,  " or lengthen the hours of work, or  " any other thing that would  tend  " to disturb tho Union or its mem-  " bers."    The smelter at Northport  is operated by the owners of the Le  Roi mine.   All the ore it smelts is  mined in .British*'Columbia .by'union  miners.    The   issue   sought to ������be  forced is plain.    If men working at  the smelter can be coerced into renouncing   their   Union,   the   same  action   will be   attempted at the  miue.    With the Miner's  Union at  Rossland knocked out, how easy it  will be to fill up the mines with  cheap   Italian labor   underground  and cheaper Japanese labor above-  ground?   This is the  issue  and it  has got to be faced sooner or later.  Rossland is to be the battle ground.  If the Le Roi   management   win,  Rossland will be the abiding place  of a few mine managers and their  assistants and the home of thousands of Italians and Japanese.

The  difi'erence between this cost an-l-tho prico you  pay is tho cost of design and the printing thereof. The value of tho design and printing depends entirely on the capability of the factory  doing the work. There is all the difference in  tbe world in tho style and finish of the product  bf the various factories. You can easily demonstrate this to your satisfaction by seeing the pipers shown by any or all ot her Wall Paper dealers in the city and then seeing ours. No matter  what price you wish to pay, bo it Gcor 4Pc, we  can give you a paper infinitely superior in style,  design and finish. V  THOMSON STATIONERY CO. Ltd  UAKER ST., NELSON, B. C.  PIANOS TO  RENT.  this is to be the result, as far as the  province is concerned, the mines at  Rossland had better never been  discovered.  This manager of the Le Roi mine  may be as big a man as his friends  claim he is, but if he is endeavoring  to break  up labor unions in this  country ho has undertaken a task  far too big'for him.     Labor unions  are just as necessary as aro combinations of capita], and  the one,  like  the  other,  will  exist just as  long as the present comraercialeon-  ditions exist.    When labor unions  make demands that are unreasonable, they will be resisted and the  unions   will   be  defeated.     When  combinations of capital are exacting in their demands, they are defeated and   the  combinations are  smashed.     There  is  enough  independent labor  and  capital  in  tlie  country  to do this.     At  the last  session  bf the legislature an Act  was passed incorporating an  association locally known in  this part  of   the   province    as   "The   Mine  Owners' Association."     The manager of the Le Roi mine, no doubt,  knows what the business and aims  of the association are, for his is the  lirst name mentioned in the Act as  one of the incorporators.    Has he,  as a mine manager, found it necessary   to    join   a   combination   of  fellow-mine managers, in order to  conduct his busiuess successfully?  If so, the question might be asked,  why he aud his" fellows found it  necessary to incorporate under a  special Act of the legislature rather  than under the general Act, under  which so many societies and associations are working successfully to;  day in the province? Was it because he and his fellows want to be  exclusive, because they are better  than the common herd; better  than the members of the Kootenay  Lake General Hospital Society of  Nelson and. the members of the  Miners' Union of Sandon ? Men  like themanager of the Le Roi  mine should take a trip over to  Nanaimo and sit for a month at  the feet of Samuel M. Robins, who  is both a mine manager and an intelligent gentleman.  The Nanaimo Herald, the daily  organ of the Labor party at Nanai-.  mo, taking for granted that a report , published   in   a   Vancouver  paper  .was  true,  sheers   at R.  F.  Green, M. P. P, of Kaslo.   The report was that Mr. Green was to be  made government agent of Slocan  cl istrieT;7^nd=tli^Herald"inlihmTtBS=  that that office was his price for  supporting the Dunsmuir  government.   If the men who work for  wages  had  a few  more men like  "Bob" Green in parliament, the professional  Labor   politicians would  have to go  out   of  business.    No  member of   the British  Columbia  legislature has boen truer to what  is called "the  Labor interest," and  if that interest has secured legislation that benefits  it, tho member  from Slocan riding  is entitled   to  a great deal of the credit.    But this  credit will  not be accorded him by  such papers as the Nanaimo Herald  aud   the   narrow-minded   gang of  political blatherskites whose mouthpiece the Herald is.    These men are  as lacking in fairness as they are iu  intelligence.   They can see no good  in anyone who is not a ranting ignoramus   like   themselves.     Their  political idols are men who do not  benefit them  materially and  who  have not sufficient brains to secure  them benefits in  the way of practical legislation.   .  Tub Cranbrook Herald is one of  the newspapers of the province  that is not at all pleased with the  legislation enacted at the last session of the legislature. It might  be fair to ack the editor of tlie Herald a question. The question could  be worded as follows: " How many  of the Acts passed at the last session of the legislature have you  read carefully and thoughtfully ?" .  There could bo but one answer to  the question. Tlie answer would  be but a word: " None!"  The Toronto Daily News printed  an expressive cartoon on Wednesday last. In the background is a  milk cow and a pump. In the foreground is an aged horse with a poke  on its neck. Midway between the  hoi so and cow Claike Wallace  stuids with a pitchfork in one hand  and in tlie other tho end of a rope  fiat is attached to tho cow. Tlio  poke on the horse bears tho inscription "Protestant Horse," and  underneath the cartoon are the  following words: "Well, Clarke  " Wallace '11 never make ns much  " out of that cow as he's made out  " bf this old horse." Mr. Wallace  has long been a leading member of  the Loyal Order of Orangemen, but  has recently embarked in the milk  business.  The people of Victoria are beginning to awaken to the fact that  a railway to the north end of Vancouver Island would be of much  greater benefit to them than a ferry  connection with a railway13built  from a point on Fraser river over  Hope mountains to Midway. But  six weeks ago any member of the  legislature making such a statement was denounced as. an enemy-  of Victoria and a hireling of the C.  P.R. ...  Vancouver expects to handle  $1,500,000 worth of gold dust this  year, and is making a vigorous  effort to succeed. Her board of  trade and banks and business men  are working as if the fate of the  town depended on getting that  dust. Yet Nelsou handles that  much gold dust and bullion every  year and not a word is heard  about it.  .  ��� Nelson can got the silver-lead  refinery if the town and the people  go about it the right way.

Washington, May 25.���TJie president has pardoned Alexander McKenzie, now confined in the j til.at  Oakland, California, for contempt  of the Circuit Court of Appeals for  the Ninth Circuit Court in connection \vith Cape Nome receivership  cases. Last night the following  telegram was received from judge  ^Morrow:���'-McKenzie Jias^thid^day=  fully complied with* the order of  the Circuit Court of Appeals by  turning, over to the defendants the  remaining property which came  into his hands as receiver in tho  eases in wliich he stands committed  for contempt." The attorney-general thereupon sent an additional  telegram to president McKinley  advising the immediate and unconditional pardon of McKen/.ie. Upon  receipt of the president's telegram  notifying him that a pardon had  been granted, the attorney-general  by wire instructed tho jailer at  Oakland to immediately release the  prisoner.  McKen/.ie, who had been appointed receiver of a number of  gold mines in Alaska by judge  Noyes of the District Court of  Alaska, refused to turn over certain  gold dust, the products of the  mines, when ordered to do so by  tlie Circuit Court of Appeals at San  Francisco.. He previously, by order  of tlie court, had returned to the  defendantsall the property which  had come into his possession except  this gold dust. For his failure to  turn thislatter over he was imprisoned for contempt of court. Mc-  Ken/.iq claimed that he was following the advice of his counsel. Tho  amount involved was over $100,000.

Tlie house of commons was prorogued on Wednesday last, but this  fact did nob; prevent tho Nelson  Miner from, publishing under the  ���lato of Saturday what purported  to be the proceedings of thafc body  on that day. The Miner's telegrams are arriving by freight these  days.  Fred Collins, who is now under  sentence of death in the Nelson  jail for tho murder of Arthur  Dando, is tho most unconcerned  man in that institution over his  late. He puts in all his leisure  time performing upon the banjo,  and switches as quickly from sacred  to minstrel airs as an artist before  the footlights.  John Joseph Fournier, the convict Avho has three years to put iu  at New Westminster, left for the  Coast on Saturday iii charge of provincial constable Forbes. Fournier  has considerable property interests  at Lardo, aud during his confinement in the Nelson jail had more  bTwiffess^iiiterviews^than^^a^reab  estate broker. .  The local employment agencies  are meeting with very indiffereut  success in their efforts to secure  men for the Lardeau railway construction work. Ib looks very much  as if the railway contractors will  be forced to furnish transportation  in order to secure men, as laborers  say they can do better on the work  at Robson aud Bonnington Falls.  The finance committee of the  Dominion Day Celebration will  begin their rounds on Wednesday.  Every dollar spent by the people of  Nelson in celebrating the natal day  of the country in which they live  and prosper is a dollar well spent.  A town, like an individual, must  dress up occasionally, and Dominion  Day is the day on which Nelsou  puts on her best clothes.  *^ No move has yet been made in  the matter of commencing work on  the Nelson postoffice and customs  house. The delay has been caused  by the action of the contractors in  endeavoring to substitute Calgary  sandstone for Kootenay lake marble. ; Ifc is|said that the Calgary  sandstone 'can be taken out, sawed  and laid down in Nelson cheaper  than the local marble, originally  decided upon, could be secured.

On the  morning of that day the river began to rise, but nothing serious was  apprehended. By evening the  water had risen to cover completely the principal street. Before  midnight houses were being carried  away and tho people had barely  time to escape with their lives. The  loss was conservatively estimated  at $100,000, but will probably far  exceed this amount, for large warehouses belonging to the Alaska  Commercial and other companies  were carried away. After night,  fell the water rose so fast  that the residents had little time to  carry their goods away, for they  had to hurry to get away safely  themselves. Recorder White cut a.  hole through the roof of his office in  order to get the records. Port Cudahy, across the river, and a few  miles further down, was also flooded out, but as yet no details of the  losses there, which are believed to  be large, have been received.  Hon. W. C. Wells, chief com^nis-  sioner of lands and works, today  met the lumbermen who objected  to the enforcement of the law prohibiting export of logs to the American side. He practically p��romis<:!<l  .that all logs at ^present cut iii  booms would be allowed to be taken  to Puget Sound, but after that the  new law would become operative.  The steamer Queen City from  Skeena river brought news of a rich  strike in the,Ptarmigan mine at  Kibsalas canyon, owned by Howard  Gould of Now York. The strike  ran $500 in silver, $40 iu gold and  4 per cent copper. ���  PERSONAL,  John Gunn is registered afc the  Phair.
