NELSON, R.O., EEID AY MORNING, MAY 31,  1901  PRICE FIVE CENTS  THE SITUATION IS ACUTE  CHRIS  FOLEY'S VIEWS   ON ROSSLAND TROUBLE.  Union Miners Are Anxious to Avoid  Difficulties, but Are Having Them  Forced Upon Them.  Chris Foley, the labor leader, does  . not take a very cheerful viow of  the present labor problem which is  presenting- itself in the Rossland  camp at this time. Owing to his absence on the coast in connection  with tlie sittings of the royal commission, Mr. Foley said he was not  as well informed upon the situation  at Itossland as ho otherwise would  be. In Itossland, however, there  . were three or four causes assigned  for tho present trouble; but concerning some of them he did not  desire to speak for publication.  They were rumors, and while past  experience hud shown that seemingly improbable rumors were well  founded, he did not feel justified in  treating any of them as otherwise  until they had been proven so.  Another reason for this was that,  notwithstanding any other influences, in his own mind he considered the chief cause of trouble was  the unwillingness of some ef the  mine malingers to recognize the  union and the systematic efforts  which had been made .and are still  being made to undermine it.  lie was nob prepared to say that  some blame did not attach to tho  miners' union, but people who were  inclined to blame the officers and  members of the union knew nothing of the provocation and indignity which the members of the  ^Winers' organization had to contend  with. In the first place the companies, who, -through their repre-.  sen'tatives,'were parties "to the "recent settlement, had  broken  f.iith  . witli the union as completely as  fait.li could bo.broken. One oL" the  principal conditions of this settlement was that tho companies  should nob discriminate against  members of the union, but this condition has been openly violated by  the companies for months. For a  time it was true the discriminations  against members of the union  ceased, but when they were again  resorted to they were more manifest than before.  Tliis was the condition which  confronted the members when the  recent ballot" was taken to indorse  the order for a strike, and the matter was very much embittered by  the actions of the mine managers  in engaging private detectives, who,  upon   becoming   members   of   the  ���������unionv-were-enabled-to^oarry^back"  to the mine managers the proceedings of the union meetings. That  men who would engage in such  work would not be above exaggerating'what they really did hear in  the union meetings is not difficult  to conceive, and from such sources  the mine managers doubtless received a view of the situation much  more, alarming than the circumstances justified.  An attempt had been made to  show that the vote upon this occasion, while ib did not indorse the  strike, was an evidence of the im-  unreasonableness of the miners, but  in reality it was an evidence of  ,their moderation. Since the vote,  however, the process of weeding  out union  miners had  been  going  , on, and the only deduction which  ���could be made from such proceedings was that no form of recognition.could be expected, and that  membership in the union constituted a barrier to employment. Ib  was this aspect of the question  which was the more forbidding,  since from the miners' point of view  ib appeared to resolve itself into a  matter of striking or of being systematically displaced. Conciliation, in facti appeared to form no  part iu the companies' program, and  the utter disregard shown for previous agreements made it very difficult to secure due consideration for  future'proposals.  Unpromising, however, as the  outlook is, Mr. Foley said he was  convinced that trouble could be  averted if the mine managers  would evince a disposition to be  reasonable, and that it was not even  yet too late to fix up an agreement  for a couple of years if desired upon  terms   advantageous   to the com- I  panies. Tlie miners of Rossland  did not want trouble; they were  anxious to avoid it; but they were  having trouble crowded upou them.  Will Manage the Payne.  Rossland, May 30.���Alfred C.  Garde, chief engineer of the War  Eagle and Center Star mines, has  been appointed manager of the  Payne mino at Sandon. He will assume the duties of his new office  next week. The Payne company  will build a concentrator and install a compressor plant, thus doing  away with the hand labor that has  been the rule heretofore. Mr.  Garde was popular in Rossland,  particularly among the baseball  enthusiasts', because of his efforts  to promote the diamond game.  Diamond Drill on the Ground,  - James Sword and C. P. Hill have  interested Montreal men in claims  that are situate seven or eight  miles northwest of Kitchener, in  Goat River district. A diamond  drill is now on the ground, and operations will be commenced at once.  The parties interested believe they  have a big thing.  COMMITTEE FIXES' PRIZES  For-the Trades Procession.  A meeting of the trades procession committee of the Dominion  Day celebration was held last night  at the office of P. Burns & Co. for  the purpose of dealing with the  question of prizes. Ib was arranged that Dr. LaBau should have  charge of the children's float, which  will be one of the principal attractions iu the processiou. The doctor  will also attend to the children's  after enjoyment. Prizes for manufactures aud trades floats in the  procession will* be given in the  shape of a diploma to the best float  representing each particular line of  business, and a cup valued at $150  will be awarded to the best float in  the procession, point of merit, tp.be  the best representation ofTany trade  or manufacture. There will be  three cash prizes for the comic section and two cash prizes for the  best groomed and decorated team  of horses. There will be three cash  prizes for decorated bicycles. A  diplomawill.be awarded to the  labor unions, point of merit, in ,the  case to be the best representation  of the labor they follow.  A gold medal will be awarded to  the best decorated baby carriage  with occupant*, that lines up in the  piocession. As the meeting was  kept up to a late hour Dr. LaBau  left before adjournment, otherwise  he would have found himself with  these infants' floats to look after.  Several other members of the committee were nominated to take this  matter in hand, bnt among those  present no one got a seconder but  ^BlakF^Vilsmi^^^HeTproTnilMztiriielp"  the attraction out so far as he  could providing Dr. LaBau undertook to contribute towards the  success of this infantile exhibition  the energy he has always displayed  toward the success of the children's  float.  A question was then brought up  respecting a prize for the best  decorated building, but owing to  the lateness of the hour was laid  over for consideration at a subsequent meeting.  WILL SHUT OUT SPOKANE  NELSON    MEN'S   BIG    DAIRYING  PROJECT.  Will Retain in the Province the La^ge  Sums Sent Out for Milk and  Dairy Products.  Taffy for Frenchmen.  Berlin,- May 30.���The correspondent of the Associated Press  has interviewed general Bene],  ���director of the French war school,  who is delighted at the splendid reception accorded the French officers  by emperor William aud his army  and at the interesting military  sights witnessed. He said: "I have  been astonished ab the perfectly  frank and soldierly manner and  speech of the emperor. Repeatedly  the emperor emphasized his gladness because the Germans and  French fought shoulder to shoulder  recently, not" only in China,  but in West Africa, thus learning  to mutually esteem each other."  The emperor also said to general  Benel yesterday: "When you return to France tell your countrymen that here nothing is felt bub  sympathy and respect for France."  General Benel repeatedly said to  his majesty: "I am not a diplomat  or political. general." Regarding  the German army, geneml Benel  said: "Neither the German nor  the French army is the same as in  1S70. There have been great improvements iu both. Yet both  might learn much from the other."  R. R. Lowe, who has charge of  the Edgewood dairy, which' a local  syndicate is establishing in Fire  valley, has, been in Nelson for the  past two days on business connected with the enterprise. During the  past two years many thousands of  dollars have gone out of Kootenay  to Spokane, and it is largely'to stop  this drain that the Edgewood dairy  was started. The dimensions-of  this trade which Americans have  worked up in the cities of Nelson  and Rossland is surprising, and  $50,000 will understate the amount  which is now being drained out of  the two cities annually. The annual milk bill which the two cities  pay to one American company is  stated at $18,000, while for butter  an equal amount is paid. In ice  cream alone the Nelsou agency of  oue American firm handled $1000  worth of cream upon wholesale invoice value.  The Nelson company which hopes  to control the whole of this trade  has secured 010 acres of very desirable dairying land in Fire valley,  three miles back from the landing.  This tract is,the oldest pre-emption  in the valley, beiug taken up by R.  It. Lowe in 1891 while upon government survey work. It is comparatively level, with a rich clay-loam  soil and is covered with clover from  one end to the other, the alsike  seemingly being the native grass of  the valley. Seventy acres of the  land have been put down in oats  and another six sown with clover,  whilo clearing is proceeding upon  the rest of it.vMr. Lovve.expectsjx)  "have 80 acres cleared this season*-  and of the entire pre-emption fully  000 acres cau be brought under cultivation. The place, however, will  be ready for stock in August, when  50 head :>f high-grade milkers will  be put upou it. -  *,Not only will "the ranch make an  ideal place for the dairy, but it has  several other advantages over all  American", dairies catering for the  trade of Nelson and Rossland  which cannot fail in the work  of crowding out the American  milk, cream and butter. In the  first place the milk from Edgewood  dairy can be laid down in Nelson  or Rossland in four or five hours, as  against the 48 hours whicli milk is  often on the road from points along  ��� the Spokane Falls & Northern railway. Another advantage is that  tjie^carriage^byi^steamer-on^th.e,  river will not injure the milk so  much as carriage by train, and the  local company also has an express  rate of three cents from Edgewood  to Nelson'and Rossland, as against  five cents from Spokane and other  American points, as well as the ad-'  vantage of the 20 per cent customs'  duty, which. American milk is subject to. The only essential to secure the trade is the maintenance  oi the grade of milk, and with the  stock which the Edgewood dairy  will have Mr. Lowe says there will,  be no difficulty upon this score.  Mr. Lowe says the government is  completing the Fire valley wagon  read to McCardell's lauding, and the  trail is being built through by the  government to Scaias' camp, thus  enabling prospectors to. get to the  north fork of the .Kettle river  without difficulty.  Quoit Club Meetiifg.  The Nelson quoiting club had an  enjoyable time yesterday afternoon,  about twenty players being on the  ground. In the button series C. E.  Miller beat R.

MINISTER   WU'S TRIBUTE  TO   OENERAL   GRANT   AT    NEW  YORK YESTERDAY.  Li Hung Chang Has the Tomb Strewn  With Flowers on Eich Memorial Day.  New YorKj May 30.���Although  there were threatening signs of rain  throughout the early part of today,  memorial day exercises in this city  were carried out' with more than  the usual interest. The parade included the 'old guard acting as an  escort to governor Odell, several detachments of United States regulars, a number of military organizations, ,a battalion of United  States marines and all of the local  posts_of the Grand Army of the Republic. In all.ithere were about  15,000 men in line. A feature of  the parade was the firing of a salute by the naval post, opposite the  statue of Farragut in Madison  square. At Grant's tomb Wu Ting  Fang, the Chinese minister, iii accordance with instructions - given  by Li Hung Chang; some years ago,  placed an offering,of flowers on the  stone coffin containing the general's  remains. Mr. Wl} also delivered an  address. '''"'!  Minister Wu "graphically described the.career of general Grant  as citizen, soldier and statesman,  his remarks showing a close study  of his subject. ���?"Nothing shows  more clearly," lie said, "the high  estimation in which Grant was held  by the world at large than the  spontaneous outburst of enthusiasm with which he was every-'  where greeted wlien he .made his  famous tour round the world.  Princes, potentates and common  people alike vied with one another  . inpayiug him the homage due to  great rulers. Cities opened their  'gates --to'- welebme--bini ��� at .his approach. His progress from country  to country was like a triumphal  procession. All this was a significant tribute to his character and  his fame. It must be remembered  that he was at this time only a private citizen. -. But everybody recognized the greatness inherent in the  man. In no country, 1 dare say,  did he receive a warmer welcome  than in the old empire of China.  "The career of Grant is just such  as is calculated to fire the imagination of the Chinese. Statesmen  and generals do not'come from an  exclusive stock is one of our favorite sayings. We Chinese have  great admiration for men who have  risen by their talents from humble  beginnings to be' acknowledged  leaders of the people. Such was  Grant.V ,   GIBSON   MADE  PRESIDENT  THE LIBERALS OF NESON ELECT  THEIR OFFICERS.  John Ayton Makes the Speech of the  Night in Accepting the Association's Presidency.  ~TVIinisber" Wu then alluded to the  friendship betvveen general Grant  and Li Hung Chang, and said:  "After Grant's death earl Li gave  instructions to the Chinese legation  at Washington to bring every year,  as is done this day, an offering of  flowers to the general's tomb on  Memorial day as a token of his enduring friendship."  DID BUSINESS ON THE CURB  Contractor .Carlson Buying Supplies;  Mayor Carlson of Kaslo, who has  the grading contract on the Canadian Pacific's Lardeau branch, was  in Nelson yesterday for the purpose of securing ��� supplies for the  worl>. He had been in correspondence-with one of Nelson's leading  business firms for certain supplies,  and was dumfounded when he  learned that the firm only did business during five and. a half^days  in. the week, and that Thursday  afternoon was one of their off periods. However, with the assistance  of a Trihune reporter, he located  one member of the firm in the rear  of his store and induced him to  come out on the sidewalk and do  business. Concerning the railway  work, Mr Carlson says that it is not  yet opened out sufficiently for the  employment of a large number of  men, but he has 125 on the pay-roll,  and inside of the week will have at  least as many more. When the  work is opened out there will be  employment for something like 700  men.   QUEBEC, 30. ���Linieret Tacher-  eau, K.C., ex-M.P. for Beauce, died  this morning of apolexy.  The meeting of the Nelson Liberal Association, which was held  in the board of trade room last  evening, was a very enthusiastic  affair, the attendance taxing the  seating capacity of thei room. Dr.  Arthur occupied the chair and  opened the proceedings. The most  important business of the meeting  was the election of. officers for the  ensuing year and although there  were no contests considerable interest was manifested.   The officers  elected were:  W. A. Galliher, M. P., honorary  president.  John Ayton Gibson, president.  E. C. Arthur, -vice-president.  George C. Tunstall, secretary.  John Hamilton, treasurer.  Executive���John A.   Turner,  R  C.     Campbell-Johnston,     Thomas  Madden, J. MeLeod, alderman Gillett, W.' A. McLean, James McPhee,  J. H. Matheson, Stuart G. Campbell,  Dr. G. A. B. Hall, S. O. Taylor and  W. Rutherford.       i  The nomination of'John Ayton  Gibson, as president of the association, was made by John A. Turner,  who paid a very high compliment  to the energy and abiliby displayed  by Mr. Gibson in the past in the interest of the party. He stated that  the flourishing condition of the association in Nelson today, as well  as the success of. the party iu ��� the  recent Dominion elections in  Yale-Cariboo, was in,-'a very  great measure due to Mr.  Gibson, and he said, it was only.be-  fitting that the association, should  show-'.its-.appreciation; ."of "Mr.-Gib-  sbn's efforts by honoring him with  the office of president and at the  same time do honor tb itself in securing so worthy a head.   '  The   nomination of- Mi-. Gibson  was   received with   loud   and unstinted applause, and there being  no other nominations the chairman  1 declared him president of the association by acclamation.  . In a neat speech  the presidentelect thanked the members of the  association   for   the   honor  which  they had conferred upon him.   He  realized   that   it   was   a   position  which   carried    responsibilities   as  well   as  honors, and   he accepted  the   trust reposed in  him  in the  hope that the members of the association would be indulgent towards  him in his efforts to discharge  the  ^same^to^the=best-of=]iis=ability^=It  had   been  remarked  that  he  had  done   much   to  keep   the   Liberal  Association in Nelson together, but  ���his own recollection of tlie  matter  was that in the early days in  Nelson  the  difficulty   was  iu   finding  Liberals  to be kept together.    It  was a party like the  United States  army   appeared   to  chiefly of   colonels,  party in  Nelson  a  was made up of the  tary,  Mr. Tunstall;  be���made   up  The  Liberal  few  years ago  present secre-  the  vice-presi  dent, Dr. Arthur; the treasurer,  John Hamilton; the orator, W.  A. McLean, and himself. If,  however, with tho growth of  Liberal sentiment he had done anything: to keep the association together he was more than repaid in  view of the very healthy organization which existed in Nelson today,  and he could only assure his hearers  that, he would continue to the best  of his ability to advance those  great principles of Liberalism as  enunciated by Alexander Mackenzie,  Edward Blake and J. Israel Tarte,  and with respect to the recognized  leader of the party���sir Wilfrid  Laurier���he would accord him his  loyal support, even though he  differed with him upon the hidden  beauties of the music'of the pipes.  The by-laws of the association  were adopted as read, and the  thanks of the association were tendered to the committee in charge of  the same for the prompt and eflicient manner in whicli its members  had discharged their duties, it be  ing voted that it was the only committee ever appointed by the association which had attended to  business.  A vote of thanks was tendered  to Dc. Alexander Forin, the retiring president, for the valued ser  vices  rendered to the association  during his term of office.  The Tribune's report of the  meeting was furnished by George  C. Tunstall, aetretary.  Chinese Commission Moves On.  The Chinese and Japanese commission completed its work of taking  evidence in Nelson yesterday morning and sailed on the afternoon boat  for Kaslo. The commissioners will  go through to Sandon and, returning, take evidence in Kaslo, from  which point it will move to the  Sound cities. John Houston, M.P.P.,  was tlie chief witness before the  commission yesterday, his evidence  dealing largely with the causes  whieh discouraged the employment  of Chinese in Nelson in the early  days of the town's' history. A. J.  Curie, secretary of the Trades and  Labor Council, submitted a statement from that body beariug ou  the Chinese question. J. K. Strachan,  city clerk, was sworn aud will put  in some statistical .information  bearing upon the subject. The evidence of two representative Chinamen was also taken touching the  condition of the Chinese in Nelson.  OVER A DAM TO THEIR DEATH  THE   SAD SEQUEL OF A MERRY  PICNIC   PARTY.

After, getting in  the middle of- the river and finding  the current too swift for comfort,  ��� the-boat   was-rowed- in , toward,  shore.    During this  time the boat  was   being   carried   slowly, down  stream.   The boy doing the rowing  decided to go through the locks. As  lie   approached" the  dam   he  was  hailed by the local keeper not to  approach any closer.  The warning was not heeded and  the young oarsman kept'on rowing  until he found that the lock was  closed.

A moment later  and the boat was in the swiftly-  moving current. Realizing their  danger for the first time, the girls  began screaming and the oarsman  losb control of the boat. Swiftly ifc  was carried toward the brink of  =the=fal 1 iiTg-witters, aiui^just-as it-  reached the breast of the dam, over  whicli thirty inches of water was  passing, the entire party stood up  and the boat went over stern first.  The drop to the rocks below is  approximately, twelve feet. The  boat struck the water bottom up,  and when it disappeared the whole  party was under it.  Nothing more was seen, by the  few persons who saw tho accident  for almost a minute, when the boat  reappeared with one boy clinging  to its keel. Then tho second man  was seen to come to the surface and  make a frantic effort to reach the  shore by swimming. Tho six girls  never rose to the surface. The boy  who was swimming and who proved  to be Osmond became exhausted  and sank before he could be rescued. Moore, the boy who was  clinging to the boat, floated fully a  half mile down the river aud his  rescuers had an exciting time before they lauded him in another  boat. He was greatly exhausted  aud was slightly injured by the  falling of tlie boat. Up to a late  hour tonight none of the bodies of  the victims had been recovered.  ,**s|  Water Stages,  Quesnelle, May 30.-  last  The  night.  river  The  rose  six  inches  weather is cooler  Sooa Creek, May 30.���The river  has risen six inches since last evening.

"    ���  THE HUDSON'S BAY COMPANY  Baker Street, Nelson.  to  (ti  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  '9^g'-r''<s"ff-'_T-c:-'S-'��"S.-'_t'<''^i^ ikt ��a^-js^'-^-^'-a^^��'4&'-a-^/t  ��he ��rttm*te  It is strange that there is only-  one place in Kootenay where there  is apparent friction between  mine-  owner and miner, and  that is  the  place that gets more free  advertising than all the other mining camps  in the  province  put  together.    Ts  the friction at that one place because the miners are of a  different  class from' the miners employed at  the other places? or is it  because  the mine managers are of a different stamp from those in charge of  mines in the Boundary, in the Slocan, in East Kootenay, or in Nelson  district?     Judging- from    reports,  the miners  employed  at  Rossland  are among the best at work in  the  province. They are expert with machine drills and the accidents that  have occurred cannot well be laid  at their doors.    No doubt, among  those  employed are men who are  "agitators,"   but   "agitating"  is  a  good deal-like "jawing," and the  workman who is continually " jaw-  " ing!,' lias little heed paid him. . On  the  other hand, some of the mine  managers at Rossland are known to  bo-first-class   men;'others,  again,  have ��� reputations  that would  not  stand an investigation by a royal  commission   made  up  of   experts.  Are the bad   mine   managers the  " wicked partners" who are causing  all the friction?   If they are, the  soonerit is brought home to them  the" better it will be for the peace  and good name of the province.  CZAR NICHOLAS FOR PEACE  MAPS OF NELSON...  .oOo  MEMO.

Tt  is to be hoped that no such conces-  wions will be made. Saloons and  hotels are the only business houses  that profit to any extent by celebrations, and they should, at least,  be as public spirited as other people  Avithouf being accorded auy special  privileges.  The,cards displayed in some of  the Baker street stores are a trifle  misleading. They announoe that  " this store will be closed on Thurs-  " day afternoon," yet the doors of  the store are wide open and customers are being waited on. Other  stores display no signs, yet their  doors are closed, aud expectant customers turn away in disgust when  they try the doors and find them  locked. Never was there a more  silly movement started in Nelson.  Nelson is to have clean outdoor  sports thi9 year. A base ball club  lias been organized with the mayor  and an M. P. as honorary presidents,-the resident physician of a  general hospital as president, and  an ex-alderman as manager. If  these worthy gentlemen fail in their  duty to the people, then this great  and influential family journal will  become an advocate of Sunday Observance.

The Old Bald-Headed Josher."  In a recent interview ' James K.  Keene, the Wall' street autocrat,  who, when he lived' in San l^ranr  cisco years ago, was one of the  boldest speculators, in Comstock  shares, is said to have, remarked:  "Men are bad. They're all bad.  There isn't'such a thing as a good  man. There isn't a man in all the  world I would trust were I. a  woman. There are so many really  good women in the world that' were  it not for .them I fear we would all  be savages." 'But ho'was speaking  to a woman reporter.  Predicted His Own Death.  Lexington, Kentucky, May 30'.���  Lincoln J. McCardi, aged OS, died at  a hospital here' last'night.    Physicians say he died-of hydrophobia,  but .because of remarkable ��� circumstances   attached ' to ��� the case an  autopsy   will be   held:     Tuesday  morning   McCardi's ' wife   left for  Cincinnati, lie bidding her g6od-by, ,  apparently well.   IMcCardi told her'  ^that^sheJtvould^ne-V.eikseeJiim^alive^  again, as he felt sure  he  would die  last night.    Later he visited his sou  and. invited him to be present^at  his   death,   which   he < again   said;  would   occur   last   night. v' Going'  home he  quickly developed symptoms  attending  hydrophobia..   He  was removed to the hospital, where  death ensued after great suffering.  Physicians  attribute his  apparent  premonition of death-to  disorders  following the use of stimulants.  Beach Washington Safely.  Washington, D. C, May 30.���  The train bearing the president and  Mrs. McKinley and the party accompanying them on the trip  through the West ended its journey here at 7:30 this morning, exactly on schedule time. Mrs. McKinley was immediately removed  to the carriage in waiting, and  driven slowly to the White House.  She looked pale and worn, the natural result of the grave ordeal  through which she recently had  passed. Secretary Cortelyou stated  that she was bearing up splendidly.  "She passed a comfortable night,"  he said, "and is feeling better today. She shows a gradual improvement."  Change of Presidents.  Nkw York, May 30.���At a meeting of the board of directors of the  Baltimore & Ohio Railway Company today Hon. John K, Cowan  tendered his resignation as president of the company, to take effect  June 1st, and L. F. Loree, now  fourth vice-president of the Pennsylvania lines west of Pittsburg,  was elected as Mr. Co wen's successor. Mr. Loree will enter upon  his duties on June 1st.  Arbitration His Policy.  St. Petersburg, May 30.���Frederick W. Hollis of the International  Court of Arbitration left for Warsaw last night; alter  having  been  received   in   special   audience   by  emperor    Nicholas    at    Perterhof  Palace at   noon.      The  conference  was extended aud most cordial.    It  is  understood   that   the    emperor  thanked Mr. Hollis for his  history  of the peace conference  dedicated  to his  majesty.    It is  also understood   that    the    emperor    spoke  warmly of the excellent  relations,  historic, traditional and actual, between the United States and Russia,  and   expressed  a  hope  that both  powers, with their great resource?,  would continue to stand  for peace  and    the    strengthening    of   Tlie  Hague tribunal and  the bloodless  adjustment of international difi'erence?.     His majesty   expressed a  conviction  , that,   the    conference  marked an  important  step  in  advance, but that the 'tribunal must  seek support, first and foremost, in  the intelligent opinion of the world.  His    majesty   charged  Mr.- Hollis  with  a personal  message  of  good  will  to . president   McKinley   and  with   congratulations   on   the   recovery  of   Mrs.    McKinley.      Mr.  Hollis is said to have  been  greatly  impressed by the  emperor's  grasp  of the subject and  by his  reserve  mental force.    During his ten days'  stay he  was warmly  received  by  count Lamsdorff, M. De  Witt,  and  M. Pobiedonotzef, procurator of the  Hoi y  Synod, find by other eniinen t  men.    One of tlie  most influential  men he met  while  here told  him  Russia '-would.-' not only  not wage  aggressive war, but would  do  all  that was possible to prevent  war  between other powers.  Disgruntled Austrians.  ��� 'Vienna',   May 30.���The   government's canal bill has aroused bitter  opposition, and the  debate  in the  reichsrath,   continuing   until   this  morning, was marked by stormy  scenes. The Pan-Germans so fiercely  abnsed Dr. Lueger, who- supported  the bill, that the sitting had to be  suspended, the president being unable to quell the-tumult. Prince  Von Schwar/.enburg, in opposing  the bill, declared that the construction of canals -provided--an-open  door for foreign invasionaud would  seriously prejudice ' agriculture  Finally' the Pan-Germans walked  out of' the house, Dr.' Lueger denouncing them- as "contemptible  traitors to the country."  fZ0- 00 ��� 010- 00  '7Z?__'______'7S__  ��� -**��>  ��0) .  _*.

CITY LOCAL NEWS  The time for tenders to be in for  the erection of the Grady hotol  at St. Leon hot springs has been  extended to June Sfcli.  Albert Edward Gardner and Miss  Ella Grace Fleming of this city,  formerly of Winnipeg, were married last evening by Rev. W.  Mn uro.  The Terpsichorean Club has made  arrangements for a midnight tram  for the convenience of those who  attend tlie assembly at the park  this evening.  "^ The police have put the West  jBaker street shooting g.illery out  of business until some necessary  provisions have been made for the  safety of the public.  R. R Green, M.P.P., E. E. Chip-  man, government agent, and mayor  Carlson,- all of Kawlo, spent five  hours in Nelson yesterday wondering what 'so many people had to do  to keep them busy.  Nelson people evidently do not  enthuse on north pole expeditions,  and the subscription forms posted  in the city banks, ih aid of captain  J. E. Bernier's expedition, havo so  far drawn nothing but blanks.  John O'Rourke was before magistrate Crease again yesterday upon  a charge of insanity. He was remanded until Monday, when ho will  probably be given a course in the  provincial government's Keeloy institute.  James Lawrence of the Lawrence  Hardware Company is back from a  business trip on the Crow's Nest as  far east as Blairmore. There is  nothing tlie matter with Nelson as  a wholesale point when her houses  can do business successfully on tlio  east side of the Rockies.  ^G. B. Matthews and J. H. Matheson have rented the entire building  in which they are located, and after  Jnne_lst_will occupy the  building  "witli tlleir respeetive~b"usmesses.  The floor will be lowered to sidewalk grade, a new front will be put  in and the building made up-to-  date.  The McGill students, who have  been studying the mines of the  Boundary district, arrived in Nelson last evening in their special  car. They will leave for Ymir this  morning, where they will'-go  through the mine, after whicli they  will return to Nelson and take iii  the Athabasca and probably the  Silver King mines.  'STohn Burke has lodged a chage  of assault against Charles Maghlio,  the bartender of the Kootenay.  Burke's story is that on Wednesday  night he went into the hotel to get  a friend who was "blowing" himself. He said the bartender resented his action as an undue interference with trade and assaulted  him. The case will be heard in the  police court today.  A retriever dog is playing havoc  with the chickens in the block  bounded by'Silicn, Hendryx, Car-  bonateand Hall streets. Onechicken  raiser has lost nearly a dozen, and  a little boy;who has beeu putting  all his money in chickens lias had  nearly his entire stock wiped out.  That dog will have a short shrift if  he is caught in the act.  Charles Wilson, K. C, who is representing the provincial government on the Chinese and Japanese  commission, did not accompany the  commissioners to the Slocan. Ho  will meet them in Spokane, however, and take in the inquiry at the  Sound canning and;.: lumbering  points, after whicli the commission  will close with the argument of the  counsel representing tho various  parties to the question. Ib is understood that the lawyers will be  limited to two hours each in the  presentation of the case.  The members of the Nelson Company of R. M. R, will have maxim  practice on Tuesday or Wednesday  next, when a floating target will be  rigged up in the lake somewhere  between the city and Roberts'  ranch, at a range of 1000 yards.  There were about ten members of  the rifle association at tho butts  yesterday, but owing to the fact  that the bullseyes had been cut  down and a heavy wind, the scores  made were somewhat disappointing. Tlie bullseye at the 200 yard  range has been cut down ono inch,  and that at the 500 and COO yard  range by four inches.  Sandy Glencross and Slim Hogan,  who have been committed for trial  upon a charge of conspiring to rob  a Greenwood gambler, were brought  to the Nelson jail last evening by  provincial constable Alaii Forester.  Barnes, the third member of the  trio, has pleaded guilty and been  remanded for sentence. He will  probably be used by the crown to  give evidence against Glencross aud  Hogan. '  At a meeting of the Nelson Boat  Club last evening it was decided to  change "the date for the June regatta from Thursday, the 0th, to  Saturday, the Sth. As previously  announced, the course will be laid  between: Roberts' ranch and the  tramway company's park, and a  band will be in attendance during  the regatta. The bylaws of the  club were submitted aud adopted.  HAD FIRST-RATE SUCCESS  __��  TELEPHONE 27  HI.    BTBRS   <fe   OO  PAINTS, OILS f\ND CLASS.  GARDEN   TOOLS.

The election of oflicers  resulted as follows: Honorable presidents, mayor Fletcher and   John  Houston, M.
