NELSON, B.C., TUESDAY MOENJNG, MAY 28, 1901  PRICE FIVE CENTS  SELOUS OPPOSES THE FAD  FRONTAGE TAX SCHEME UNJUST  AND  UNWORKABLE.  Says It Would Prevent All Improvement in the Outlying   Sections  Instead of Promoting It.  The  object  bylaw   which   has  the   introduction  frontage tax system  for  ing on of improvements  duced at  last evening's  session  for   its  ot    the  the carry-  was intro-  of  the   city  council and  received  its  lirst and second reading pro forma.  "When the bylaw  was introduced  alderman  Selous made a  vigorous  speech  in  denunciation of it.    He  said  he  did   not know  what  the  other  aldermen   had   done  iu   the  matter, but  he had  given   himself  the pleasuro of  reading the  bylaw  over very carefully, and he said the  more ho had read of it the moro lie  wondered  at  its   provisions.    Tlie  first thing tliat struck him was tlie  anion ut of  extra  work  which  the  bylaw  would   entail.    First,  there  was tlie work whicli" it cut  out for  the city engineer.    This official was  already     overworked,     but      the  additional work  wliich  the  bylaw  placed upon his shoulders was  tremendous.    If  the system  outlined  iu   tlie   bylaw   were  adopted  tlio  city     engineer      would      require-  additional help, and it  was not unlikely   that   two   men    would   be  required for tho   work.    There was  not sufficient accommodation ab the  city offices for  such men  as would  be   required,  and  it  would  therefore    be      necessary    to    furnish  rooms   for   the   extra    men   after  they    had   been    engaged.        The  next      thing       required '    would  bo-jthe engagement of a city solicitor to attend to the working of the  now system,  as  it  would  also, involve 4 tremendous ainouiit of leg-il  work.- JlaviiigTfmille^^rlTSsS'arrange-  munts the council would then lrive  a bylaw introducing a system which  was  absolutely  inequitable.     The  people of  certain  portions of  the  city were then to be asked  to  nay  one-haif the cost of local improvements,    whereas    other   people  in  other    portions    of   the   city   for  similar    improvements    had    only  borne their due proportion  of  taxation.    He added that he had made  it iii.s business to inquire from other  people  from  eastern  and  western  citios'what had been tlie experience  of other cities that had attempted  the introduction of such  a  system  and   the   replies  received   by   liiin  ��� had been that the system had  led  to incessant and  costly  litigation,  some of the cases arising  uiider  it  going  to   the  privy council, after  _-w.hich-ih_mtuiyjiustiuic6S-.the_sys.te.nl,  had been discarded as unworkable,  lie had gone very carefully over  the bylaw and failed to liud a. tingle  redeeming feature iu it, and iu his  opinion the council would spare itself and the citizens unnecessary  worry, by not proceeding any  further with.it.  Mayor Fletcher said ho believed  every city in tho Dominion of any  size was working under tlie local  improvement system.  Alderman Selous replied that tho  two mon whom he had consulted  upon the matter had assured him  tliat the system had been found to  bo inoperative after large sums of  money had been spent.  Mayor Fletcher maintained if the  council was going to extend improvements to the outlying portions of tho city, where people  wanted grades made and streets  cut down, there was no good reason Why the cost of such work  should not fall upon the property  immediately benefited. It waa obvious that with such improvements  a different policy should be carried  out than was done in improving  the main streets, which everybody  used. If ���; the present council did  not adopt the local improvement  system the succeeding council would  be forced to.  Alderman Selous replied that  after reading the by-lay he had  come to the conclusion that Under  ib there would be no improvements  carried; out in tho outlying portions  of the ciby. Once the by-law was  passed the city council would immediately take refuge behind its  provisions and insist upon tlie  people who wanted the -work dono  coming forward and petitioning  that they be taxed for such work.  People as a rule did not adopt any  such principle and the result would  be that 'no work would be done.  Personally he was convinced that  the present method of the council  iu simply making the outside streets  passable was much better and more  effective than would be the system  sought to be introduced in the bylaw.  Alderman Hamilton said he did  not think the introduction of the  system would work any hardship  on the people in the outlying portions of the city and this opinion  was also voiced by aldermen Irving  and Gillett.  Alderman Madden said he would  favor any system which got at the  absentee owners in the outlying  sections, so that they paid their due  propoVt-iou-of taxation. ,  '.' Alderman:_,Selous rejoined that  the system would not have any  such effect. Whatever might be  said in favor of it, it could hot be  shown that it promised improvements in the outlying sections of  the city. Wherever the system  was put in force it required the signatures of a considerable percentage of the property affected. This  would mean that absentee owners  would be required to petition the  council for the improvements,' with  the special taxation' equipment,  which was just what tho absentee  owners woidd refuse to do. The  result would be that the necessary  petitions .would be insufficiently  signed, in which event the improvements could not be made.  It was eventually decided to give  the by-law its first and second readings pro forma, upon ,the under,  standing tliat it could be dissected  in committee, and the city solicitor,  who drafted the by-law, will be  asked to attend its post mortem.  The finance committee's report  recommending the payment of the  current accounts, was read and  adopted. Among other items was  one of $29S to cover nurse Clayton's  services in connection with the recent smallpox case.  The report of the overseer was  read and filed, and Wednesday,  July 10th, was set as.the. date for  the holding of the court of revi-,  sion.. The court will be composed  of niayor Fletcher and aldermen".  Hamilton, Irving, Gillett and Patterson.  The council decided to call for  tenders for*, tlio purchase of 1500  pounds of- lead.      -      ,  Estimates were submitted from  the city engineer that the grading  of the north sido of Hoover street,  from Stanley to Ward, would cost  $200, and that the grading of the  east end of Victoria street and  fixing the approach to Cedar street  would cost $125. The council decided to go ahead with both pieces  of work.  The council also decided to have  catch basins put in at the corner of  Silica and Ward streets aud the  corner of Ward and-Vernon streets.  An expenditure of $25 was also  authorized for. the building of a  corral for the city's horses.  ;  Eight~"tenders  wore reeeivecl~for"  the supplying of 100  poles  for the  electric   light   system,   and    were  referred to tlie fire, \yateraud light  committee with power to act.  SPECIAL MEETING CALLED  NELSON  MADE DIG GAINS  REALTY JUMPED 50 PER CENT IN  THREE TEARS.  While Improvements Show the Phenomenal Advance of $886,563 Within  the Same Period.  Of Imperial Development Syndicate.  -An extraordinary general meeting of the stockholders of the Imperial Development Syndicate will  be held on Juno 10th for the purpose of.amending certain articles of  the association affecting the disposition of company property. It is  also likely that something further  will- be announced at the meeting  with respect to the recent strike  made upon the Rossland claim in  tho Eva group, owned by the syndicate.' In ' doing some surface  work upon this claim last week a  ledgo was uncovered which appears  to be from 0 to 8 feet in width, from  the entire width of which good  paying values are secured in free  gold, and two feet of which contains exceptionally rich oro. Work  is being performed upon tliis ledge,  the development of which may  greatly enhance the syndicate's-  holdings. - Nearly all the shareholders in tho Imperial Syndicate  are Nelson men, and it looks as if  they will have one of the largest  free gold producing properties in  tho Lardeau.  The assessment roll as submitted  to the city council last evening will  be somewhat disappointing to those  Who expected to see the sensational  advance in values which characterized the two previous rolls maintained. The reason for this is that  Something approaching the actual  value of land has been^reached and  from this time forward values will  advance but 'slowly. In this connection it may be cited that the  land valuation of $1,230,840 returned for the .current year, while  it shows no increase over the assessment' of the previous year, has  marked an increase.of over 50 per  cent in land values iu Nelsou since  theassessment roll was returned in  1898, the land values for tlie year  being but $806,870. This advance,  no doubt, fairly represents the gain  made by Nelson realty during that  time, but it was not to be expected  that any such rate of increase could  be maintained.  Great as this advance has been,  however, it does not begin to compare with the progress Nelson has  made in building, -which is evidenced by the value placed upon  improvements. " This year the improvements go over the million  mark, the figures being $1)061,135,  an advance of over a quarter of a  million from the. value returned  last year, although 1900 was considered an off year for. building.  Even this advance, however, does  not maintain the average* increases  of former years, the value of improvements in lOOObeing -returned  at $800,950, and those' of.'11899 "at  $420,030, while the improvements-  in'lSOS were valued at but,$174,-  572. Compared, therefore, with  the return bf 1898 tlie value of Nelson's improvements in the three  years has increased by $880,503, a  record which few if any towns in  Canada the same size can equal. .  Considered with respect to wards  the figures "submitted last evening  show tliat the greatest gain in improvements has been made in the  West ward. The value- of the improvements in the East ward in  1900 were returned' at $458,100,  while this year they reach $599,240.  The West ward improvement values were returned at $342,850 in  1900, but, this year they are increased to $401,890, the K.W.C.  block accounting for the bulk of  Tlie"gaih.

Gillan was aged  25 years and came from Wyne  Harbor, Gaysboro county, Nova  Scotia.  The royal commission to inquire  into Chinese and Japanese immigration into British Columbia was  .in session in this city today. The  commissioners are Messrs. R. C.  Clute, K. C, of Toronto, chairman;  D. J. Munn of New Westminster,  Chris Foley of Rossland; secretary,  F. J. Deane of Kamloops, and Alex.  II. Crawford, stenographer, of Toronto. Charles Wilson, K. C, of  Vancouver is also present representing the provincial government.  J. B. McArthur was the first witness called, and the morning sessiou  was occupied in taking his evidence, which was against the Chinese.  In the afternoon Hon. Smith Curtis, M. P. P., testified. He alluded  to the difficulty of obtaining domestic servants in the}west and also  some kinds of manual laborers. Mr.  Curtis was strongly against tlie  employment of Chinese or Japanese labor wherever white men  could be got to do the work. He  advocated the adoption of the New  Zealand plan for arbitration in fixing a schedule of minimum wages  for all workers. He thought by  this means Chinese and Japanese  labor would be gradually done  away with.  Secretary Frank Woodside aud  Others gave testimony against the  immigration of Mongols. The commission will continue their sessions  tomorrow morning aud expect to  leave tho camp for Nelson in the  evening.  Test Cases Before the United States  Supreme Court as to Revenue  Collections.  Washington,  May  27.���Of the  several cases decided today the two  which attracted the greatest attention from the court -were what is  known as the De Lima case and  that known as the Downes case,  and of these two, the opinion iu the  Downes case is considered the most  far-reaching, as it affects our future  relations, whereas the De Lima case  dwelt with a transit phase of our  insular   relations.     The   De Lima  case was the first to receive the attention of the court aud as it appeared to be quite 9weepingly opposed   to   the   governuient'9   concerns   many persons precipitately  arrived at the conclusion that the  government had been worsted all  along the line.   This view suffered  a decided change when the conclusion was announced in the Downes  case. The court was very evenly divided on both cases, but political  lines were not at all controlling.  The'De Lima case involved the  power of the government ,to collect  a duty on goods imported into the  United States from Porto Rico alter  the ratification of the treaty of  Paris and before the passage of the  Porto Rican act. The court said  the government contention in this  case was substantially a claim that  Porto Rico is a foreign territory,  ' The entire case turned upon that  contention. The court held that  the position was not well taken;  that' Porto Rico was not at the  time L foreign territory and that,  therefore, the duty which had been,  collected must ,be returned. The'  "decision' tfn the Dowries'casefollowed-,  the history of the dealings of the  United States with Porto Rico a  step ' further. The case dealt with  the legality of the exaction of  duties on goods imported from  Porto Rico into New York under  the passage of the act providing for  a duty upon goods shipped from  the United States into Porto Rico  aud also on those shipped from  Porto Rico to the United States.  In this case the court held such  action was legal and constitutional.  The point of the two opinions considered collectively is that Porto  Rico was never after the acquisition of that island foreign territory; that until congress acted  upon the question no duty could be  collected, but that as soon as congress outlined a method of controlling the island's revenues thataction-  became binding. In other words,  that congress has power under the  constitution to prescribe the manner of collecting the revenues of  the country's insular possessions  and has the right to lay a duty on  goods imported into our insular  possessions from the United States  or exported from them into the  United States. "' -  Opinion of the Solicitor-General.  Washington, May 27.���Solicitor-  general Richards, who had charge  of the insular cases before the supreme court, today made a statement containing his interpretation  of the decisions of the court,  in which he says: Tho important  question in these cases is whether  the cession of the territory contained in the treaty of Paris made  Porto Rico aud the Philippines an  integral part of "the United States  within the meaning of that provision of the constitution requiring  "all duties, imposts and excises to  be uniform throughout' the United  States." The court held that the  cession simply made Porto Rico and  the Philippines domestic territory  of the United States, subject to the  full control of congress, which control could be exercised without reference to these limitations.  This limitation the court held  was intended to apply to the states  of the Union and does not apply to  acquired territory unless by treaty  and by subsequent act of congress  it is incorporated within and becomes an integral part of the  United States. The decisions are  substantially a victory for the  government. They sustain to the  fullest extent the so-called insular  policy of the administration.    The  Venezuelan Court Objects. -  Caracas, May 27.���The supreme  court of Venezuela has refused to  allow the exceptions taken by the  NewYoikand Bermudese Asphalt  Company iu the lawsuit resulting  in the asphalt controversy. Messrs.  Quinlan and Warner of Syracuse  are the plaintiffs in the case.  British Post Captured.  London, May 28.���The Times  publishes the following���from-Crad-  dock, dated May 27th: "Kritzinger's  invaders of Cape Colony captured a  British post of 41 men near Maras-  burg after a stout resistance.  THE MINER AND THE MINT  Profits in Silver Coinage.  James Bannerman does not share  in the Nelson Miner's alarm that  the establishment of a Canadian  mint will result in the flooding of  the country with silver currency.  He is aware of the circumstance  that there is a very wide margin  between the market and currency  value of silver, but so long as the  credit of the Dominion is behind  its silver currency it will remain as  good as its paper currency, which  in point of production continues to  be cheaper than silver coinage.  Some five years ago Mr. Bannerman  had occasion to correspond with the  minister of finance upon the currency question, when Hon. Mr.  Folding informed him that there  was at that time a surplus of some  two million dollars of Canadian  silver on hand at that time. In the  past the government has not lost  the difference between the .market  price of silver and its currency  value, so that the establishment of  a mint would not enable it to secure  any advantage in this respect, nor  would it furnish any incentive to  flooding the country with silver  currency.   In Baltimore, Maryland, every  gas meter is tested by the lamps  and lighting department before it  is installed in a residence or business house.  government now has the sanction  of the supreme court for governing  these islands as their needs require.  Sunday-Closing Cranks.  Rochester, New York, May 27.  ���For tho third time the que-dion  as to Sunday closing oft the Pan-  American exposition  was brought  before the appelate   division  this  afternoon.    Since the case was last  before the court the lawyers employed have agreed upon" the facts  on which the action is based.-    The  movement is veiled under a motion  for the removal of two Buffalo police commissioners on the grounds  that   they have   been   derelict in  performing their duties in allowing  the exposition to remain open on  May 5 th and 12 th. Attorney West-  wood   for   the   petitioner,    Oscar  Chapin,    argued    that    although  the  governor appointed the police  for the grounds, the power of the  police      commissioners     was   not  abridged.   Lawyer Cunneeu of Buffalo appeared in opposition to the  motion.   He said   that the police  commissioners have relied upon the  fact that there was and is a police  force appointed   by the governor  doing duty at   the Pan-American  grounds, and believed that the exposition police would preserve the  peace and prevent violation of the  law and that they have been forced  to act upon  the assumption that  the Pan-American police force Was  doing its duty.    The court reserved  its   decision.   A   decision  may be  handed   down   tomorrow   or   one  week from that timo.  An Anarchist Weakens.  Rome, May 27.���A newspaper  published in "Verona reports the at-  temptad suicide of a youthful blacksmith named Pietruci, who has confessed that he belonged to a society  of anarchists and was chosen by  lot to kill the emperor of Germany.  He preferred suicide to making the  attempt. His confession also disclosed the names of certain of his  comrades who had been detailed to  kill queen Helen of Italy, president  Loubet of France- and the czar' of  Russia.

PROVINCE ASSUMES CONTROL  OF SALMON  FISHING AND CANNERY AFFAIRS.  M-Ti1*  ��� Y*  Management by Dominion Authorities  Unsatisfactory���Protecting the  Lumbering Interests.  Vancouver, May 25. ��� [Special'  Correspondence by  Mail.]���By an-  order-in-council passed recently by.-  the   lieutenant-governor-in-council  provincial   control of   the salmon "  fishing aud cannery affairs of the'  province   went into   effect today,   .  The fisheries have been taken pos-"  session of forcibly by  the^provin-   .  cial government from the Dominion, .-  on the  ground that, according to,1  the contentious of the canners, the  Dominion   was   not  expending hn  amount in public improvements, of  the industry sufficient to" the de"-  -  mands.     The canners 'asked   the  government at Victoi ia  to as3uma  the control aud this action has been    -  taken.     The   fishei men's    licenses -  have been reduced from $10 to $2.50^ "'  and  the difference  iu   revenue  to;*-  the government will be made up by  an   assessment   of  a  certain per-    ��  centago on   each case   of salmon  -,  packed.  Those interested regard it as certain that, there will be a clash between the two governments over  the fishing this season.    The pro-1  vincial government probably has a:  good right to the rivor waters,  ac-*��  cording    to   long-established    pre-���  cedent, but the Dominion will- not ]  forego its right in inland sea waters.  G. It. Maxwell, M. P., in speaking of.-'  the matter, says that it is not un--'  likely that the  Dominion  will  demand the old license fee of $10 in  addition from fishermen in the Gulf v  of   Georgia,   where most   of- ,the~-  salmon are caught, and he thinks,  trouble will ensue right there.     -  When the recent Provincial-Act "  went-into force prohibiting the*ex-,  port of logs  to the United  States^  from British Columbia strong com- -  plaint was  made by  local  lumbermen that large loss would ensue be-*'  cause of the stock of lumber already  on hand.    Milloy's  aud Hamilton's  camps  up the coast were entirely  closed down aud other camps discharged many of their men because  of the closing of the American market.    On Friday Hon. W. C. Wells,  chief   commissioner   of   lands and  works, was  iu the  city and he met  the   lumbermen.      He    practically  agreed that all  timber at  present  cut aud  in booms - might be sold to  tho  mills on Puget sound, but he���'.  declared  that  the act itself would  be enforced  so far as other timber  not already cut was concerned.  Seattle parties are arranging for  the-cstablishinent-of_a���wood- pulp""  industry at Cameron's river spit,  near Seymour's narrows, about 125  miles up tho coast. A thousand  acres of land, witli a first-class -  water power, have been secured,  and the initial investment will be  about $100,000. The raw article  will bu exported to Seattle aud  Irom thero to tho east, where ic  will bo finished. It is expected later  to put in finishing machine.", so  that the work can be done complote by the plant here.  Date Definitely Fixed.

As soon as its Morgenthaler type  setting machines are installed in  good working order, Tub Tribune  will issue an evening edition. It is  now the only paper in Kootenay  . that receives both the afternoon  and night reports of the Associated  Press, and it is the only paper in  Nelsou that receives any reports  from the Associated Press. ,  Men who" are members- of labor  unions because they believe in the  principles of unionism are not  swayed to any extent by the  mouthings of blatherskites or the  ravings of newspapers that always  . oppose unions when the unions are ���  * indeed of friends. These blatherskites and newspapers are now  busily engaged in throwing mud at  Thb Tribune and one of its editors.  It is not likely that Hon. J. II.  Turner will resign his portfolio as  finance minister in ,the Dunsmuir  government   and   his seat in the  .-house until some time after his arrival in  London.   This will be a  "disappointment    to     those    who,  severally,   believe   they   will    be  called      on      to      succeed      him,  but       the      people       will       not  worry much over it.    If the province has bonds to sell, Mr. Turner  would be more able to place them  to good advantage than a new and  l-untried-miuister.j���Ujitil..Mi'.J.,ur.n.e.i'L  ' resigns,   the   provincial   secretary,  Hon. J. D. Prentice, will bo acting  iinance minister, soit is said.  Thb followidg words appeared in  Thb Tribune of the 17th instant as  a local item: "The clerks are going  " to form a union in order to en-  " force the Thursday Closing move-  " mont. There are too many young  -" men in the East for the union to  " be a success." Newspapers in  Kootenay, like the Rossland Miner,  Nelson Miner, and.Sandon Mining  Review, that have not printed a  sentence in the last two years in  favor of labor unions are trying  to make it appear that Thb Tribune  is oue thing to organized labor and  something else to unorganized labor.  The Tribunes, is indifferent as to  what opinion these papers hold on  the question���as indifferent as  the people are���for neither oue of  the papers mentioned above influences public opinion to any appreciable extent.  Alderman Selous has taken a  right stand in opposing the frontage  tax bylaw. The streets of Nelson  are for the use of all the people of  Nelson, and there is no good reason  why one man should be made pay  through the nose for street improvements that another man insists should be made. The city  has not sufficient revenue to improve all the streets at once���no  city has; but all needed improvements can be made without piling  WALL  PAPER  The actual value of  . a roll of Wall Paper  in its imprinted  st ite as it leaves the  mill ia 3Jc, coloring  matter used on it  lc, total. 3ic. The  difference between this coft an 1 tho price you  pay is the cost of design and the printing thereof. "The value of the design and printing depends entirely on the capability of the factory  doing the work. There is all tho difference in  the world in the style and finish of the product  of the various factories. Yon can easily demon-  sliate this to your satisfaction by seeing the pipers shown by any or all other Wall Paper dealers in the city and then seeing ours.

Paris   newspapers   recently    became interested  in  a discussion as  to the quickest time a trip  around  the world could  be  made, and. Le  Matin, the great -Paris newspaper,  announced that ifc would  send  one  of its editors to settle  the question  by an actual  test.-     Next day ,Le  Journal gave notice that on the day  the Matin's man started east from  Paris one  of its  men  would  start  west in  an  effort  to  make better  time than  the  other.     The  thing  was too interesting to be  confined  to Paris.    Tlie Tageblatt of Berlin  instructed its  Paris  correspondent  to start at the same time and  win  tlie  record around  the  world  for  tlie honor of  Germany.     England  broke   into the   race.     Humor, a  British  newspaper, will make  the  effort for the glory of that country.  For the moment the race around  the world bus taken attention from  all other explorations and  experi;  ments   in   travel   and   geography.  Nobody iii Paris talks of the patties  -that are striving to reach the north  pole;   the   south  polar  expedition  lias dropped out of sight,  and  the  .projected   balloon  trip across  the  Atlantic has been pigeonholed until  tho   record  of  around   the  world  travel is taken from- the  realm  of  theory into the  domain  of accomplishment.  While the great editors abroad  are figuring on itineraries and talking about it, the Yankee schoolboys will do it. There is to be no  delay. May 20th a boy was started  east from Chicago by Hearst's  (Jhicago American to take a steamer  i'roni here on the 22d. The su mo  d.-ty also a New York boy, representing the Journal, started west to  catch the Empress of India, the  fleetest passenger steamer on the  Pacific ocean, wliich sails from Vancouver on May 27th". At the steamer  dock he will meet a boy who has  been sent out by the San Francisco  Exnminer. The New York and San  Francisco lads will be together during the.two weeks required to cross  the Pacific ocean at least. After  they"get to Japan each will travel  b"y the route that seems to promise  the greatest speed.  Tho paper points out tliat the  boys going west havo two handicaps. They go by steamboat up  the Amur river iu Siberia, from  Khabarovsk to Stretensk,- 1400  ���miles.    The current favors the  boy^  "at-least six  west gains a  day by traveling with the sun.

Sydney's Welcome.     ���-  , Sydney, New South Wales, May  27.���The British steamer Ophir,  having on board the duke and  duchess of Cornwall and York,  arrived here at 11 o'clock this  morning. She was joined outside  the harbor by a squadron of seven  government vessels, conveying the  premier, sir William Lyhe, the ministers aud federal officers. As the  squadron entered the roadstead,  the Ophir leading, the Russian  cruiser Gromoboy from the Athol-  brighfc anchorage fired a royal  salute. Tho     British     cruisers  responded, hoisting the Ru-ssiaii  flag. Tho harbor was crowded  with shipping and excursion craft  and the shores were lined with  spectators. The sun shone intermittently. When the Ophir came  to anchor she wag boarded by the  governor-general, the earl of Hopetoun; sir Frederick Darley, Jieu-  tenaut-governor of New South  Wales; and the Russian admiral.  Tho duke and duchess landed at 2  o'clock and were greeted with enthusiasm. The decorations were  magnificent aiid a brilliant military  escort waited at the lauding.  Settlement in Sight.  Piokin, May 27.���Ifc seems probable that Great Britain's proposition limiting the indemnity to be  demanded from China to 450,000,000  taels will be.agreed to by the end  of tho week. United Slates special  commissioner Rockhill thinks .that  this may be considered an American victory. Though his proposition limiting indemnity to 310,000,-  000 taelswas not .accepted, still it  was the cause of the other powers  considering the idea. The only  point likely to cause further delay  in a decision by all the powers except America is that regarding the  raising of the-,jforeign customs 5  per cent. Mr. Rockhill told the  ministers at a recent meeting that  rather than take this step America  would relinquish all claims to indemnity, and oven make a present  to China, as American commercial  interests would suffer far more  thereby than those of any other  power with possibly one exception.  Hawaiian Matters.  Chicago, May 27.���Samuel Parker, foreign minister in Hawaii  when Lilioukalani was on the  throne, in speaking of existing conditions on the island said last night:  "You hear about the Hawaiian patriots demanding governor Dole's  deposition.

The bridge which C. P. Hill  threw across Goat river, some four  miles from Kitchener, was taken  out by the flood last week shortly  after the finishing touches had  been given tp it. The structure  cost between $000 and $800, and  was being built to enable the owners of the Iron Capping group to  get machinery upon their property.  The company-* has about twenty  men at work putting in another  bridge and fixing up trails to the  property.  The country around Creston is  steadily iilling .up with people who  prefer to take their chances at  farming rather than any other pursuit. Upwards of a dozen families  settled in' tlie district during the  ���past season,"and in Creston and  viciuity there is now a school population of 33 children. The Kaslo &  Slocan Railway Company has disposed of a considerable acreage of  theuv-tIan$;T in < this vicinity, and  everything points to Creston being  quite a farming district.  Just before 1 o'clock on Sunday  morning the police heard loud cries  for-help issuing from the tenderloin  district, but when they arrived on  tho scene everything was quiet.  Yesterday, however, they located  Georgo Shea in a shack in Bogus-  town, who was badly cut about tho  head. Shea was the victim of an  assault and his cries for help  startled the neighborhood. Ho  says he was sot upon by three men  whom he does not know and assaulted with brickbats and clubs.  No trace has been secured of   his  Brewery at Nehon [ JOSEPHINE   STREET, N��AH  BAKEB. I assailants,.  The differences which exist between a number of the city physicians and the local health officer  furnished the subject matter for a  lengthy meeting of the local board  of health last evening. The subject  was introduced by a communication from Dr. Hall in i eference t o  the Graham quarantine, in which  the writer stated that he aud a  number of other physicians were  anxious to know what course the  local board of health, intended to  pursue with respect to the reporting and quarantining of suspected  cases of scarlet fever. ���.','���  When the communication was  read alderman Hamilton said it appeared to him that the matter resolved itself into a question as to  what the duties of the health officer  were.  Mayor Fletcher remarked that  forms were now being prepared for  tho use.of the doctors under which  they should report aliases of contagious diseases which come under  their notice.  Alderman Irving suggested that  the point to be decided was whether  the doctors should report cases as  suspected cases or as actual cases.  Alderman Paterson expressed the  opinion that the present system  was all right. The doctors could  report suspicious cases and they  should be quarantined until the  patients recovered or the attending  physician reported, that the contagious diseases' suspicioued had  not developed." *���  -  Dr. Hall, who was  present, said  if tho board wished to hear him he  could give the views of a number of  the ciby physicians upon the question at issue and the necessity for  arriving at. some   definite understanding   with* respect to'the  rer  porting of the cases.    In the first  place lie pointedjont that the city by  its bylaw acknowledged its responsibility   to   check    the .spread   of  contagious diseases, and as soon as  cases   were   reported   they    were  quarantined."'The law also required  physicians   to  report all - cases * of  contagious diseases, but it frequently   happened* that   physicians   in  their   professional capacity   never  got beyond the first stages of the  disease, which could not be classed  otherwise than as* suspicious cases.  The position which he and a number of the doctors took was that  their   duty   to , the   public .ended  when they reported a case as showing, symptoms of the disease.     He  knew of four different, instances in  which physicians recently had been  called   in   to   treat   children,..-. for  what appeared to be mild cases of  scarlet fever.   The mothers of the  children were   informed that the  children appeared to be suffering  fromiScarle.tJLeyje^  took the treatment into their own  hands.   Having received such intimation,  the physicians  could not  call again and ascertain whether  the suspected case of scarlet feyer:  developed, aud even if it did they  were not called in again unless the  disease became malignant.    In such  cases the physicians  were powerless   to   do   anything   other than  report suspicious  cases.    His contention was that the health officer  should ascertain all such cases.  Mayor Fletcher said that the act  contemplated that such should be  done by the health officer iu cases  in which the patient had no attending physician. ,  Dr. Hall replied that in the lirst  instance, when the cases wore reported as suspicions, the patients  had attending physicians, but that  frequently after' so reporting the  physicians received intimation that  their services would nob be required  so that they were thereafter unable  to report definitely. In this connection Dr. Hall also observed that  in ' event of being called in  to a patient showing symptoms of smallpox he would not  mak a second-trip to the patient,  but would simply report it as a suspicious cuse to the health officer, as  no doctor could afford to -.treat a  smallpox case as it would interfere  with the rest of his practice.  Alderman Selous said that the  question now appeared to resolve  itself into one of cash, that in cases  of smallpox or suspected cases of  smallpox the doctors wanted to  slough them olT on the city. He  protested against the board attempting to arrive at any decision  upou such matters without consulting the health officer.           After considerable talk it was de-| Nelson,B.C.  jst:e"LiSo:n"  STORES   AT  S-A-lsTIDO^sr  cided to have the health officer  draft a set of regulations and submit them to the other doctors by  which means it is hoped a satisfactory arrangement may be arrived at.
