C, WEDNESDAY MORNING, MAY 29, 1901  PRICE FIVE CENTS  HUGH NIXON'S CLOSE GALL  GOES   THROUGH   THE   ELECTRIC  LIGHT SPILLWAY.  And Is Pinned in a Helpless Condition  in Some Driftwood Fifty Feet  Below the Dam.  Ilngh Nixon, who has been employed for the past few days iu  protecting the electrie light dam  from damage by logs brought down  by tho freshet, had a remarkably  close  call   for   his    life  yesterday  .  morning.    Lt\ order to  protect  the  . dam from driftwood a boom was  thrown across tlie creek some  seventy-five feet above the dam,  but Iho current is so strong tho  driftwood is frequently carried  under the boom aud lodged in the  spillway.  Yesterday morning a portion of  an old footbridge got into tho spillway aud the force of water held it  in so tight that it could not be  moved, and it was while trying to  dislodge this that'Nixon met with  -his accident. He was at work try-,  ing to pry off one of the brockets  clinging to the piece of footbridge  when the wreckage' became freed.  As the force of the current caught  it Nixon received a blow from the  pike pole ho was using which  knocked him into the spillway.  Tliis passu go is nine feet by six feet  deep aud through it the water  takes a shoot of about 20 feet at a  frightful velocity. Below the dam  the channel opens out some and the  water pounds upon a bed of large  boulders and a network of driftwood. Nixon went through  tho spillway like a shot  and although he retained consciousness w;is powerless to aid himself  in any way, .so that tho water  wedged him'in tightly among some  logs about 50. feet below the d.uu".  Even as it "was- tin's7 would" li.-ive  marked the finish of Nelson's veteran bridge.builder were it not for  the heroism of W. J. Young, one of  tho 'men who had been working  with him all summer. Young took  his own life iu his hands and started down tho stream to Nixon's rescue. In doing so lie got jammed  himself once, but finally made his  objective point, and fastening a  rope securely under Nixon's arms  had the satisfaction of seeing him  hauled safely out of danger.  Nixon was then removed to  his shack and medical assistance  summoued, but aside from some  severe bruising in  being  battered  - against the boulders aud  the sawing of the rope around his body he  professes to bo all light.    To a Till-..  bunk   reporter   he    said   that  lie  thought lt_was alLiinljwith him^and^  "That he was going over the falls, in  which case he would not have  one chance in a thousand. He attributes his lodgment in the driftwood to his attempts to keep off  the bottom. In his short trip of 50  feet, he lost his watch and pocket-  book containing $!)0,. but he does  not profess any inclination of going  back after them.  The bravery of "VV. J.,Young in  taking the risks which'ho did can  only be appreciated by thoso who  are familiar witli this portion of  Cottonwood creek at high water,  and Mr. Young's claims to the Humane Society's medal should be  duly pressed by tho civic authorities.  London's Stock Market.  Nkw York, May 2S.���The Commercial Advertiser's London financial cablegram says: Business was  hardly resumed today. The little  market there was was heavy and  featureless. The American department continued to bo stagnant.  The only news was that Kuhn, Loeb  & Co; had cabled to their correspondents here that all bona fide  dealers who wero caught short of  Northern Pacific and unable to obtain the stock should be allowed to  settle at tlie rate of $153 per share,  Money was a little easier.  Increased Business Expected.  Berlin, Miy 2S.���Tho Hamburger  Correspondence prints an interview  with Herr Baliin, director of the  Hamburg-American SteamshipCom-  pany, who recently returned from  an Asiatic tour, in the course of  which he says that the Hamburg-  Americ.vn line, with several German  firms established in Shanghai, has  purchased 3000 feet of deep-water  frontage at the entrance to Shanghai harbor, where imraence docks  will be constructed. The company,  according to tho interview, has also  leased largo tracts of wharves from  the China Merchant Steamship  Company for 25 years, and will  erect quays and warehouses, expecting a rushing business after the  conclusion of peace at Pekin.  ���r.  Another Boer Appeal.  Berlin, May 28.���Special dispatches from St. Petersburg assert  tliat Dr. Hendrick Muller and Dr.  Leyds, representing the Boer republics, have appealed, formally to The  Hague arbitration court, promising  to abide by the decision of the  tribunnl regarding the issues involved in the South African war  and pointing out that several of  the paragraphs of the constitution  of the arbitration court signed by  the powers represented at the  peace conference bear directly upon  the South African case. Tho Berlin papers tonight express the  opinion that it is quito possible  Great Britain* would now submit  the issues to the decision of the  court.         *           Busy Boxers.  London, May 29.���The Boxers  are again active in all districts  wheie there aro no foreign troops,  says a dispatch to the Standard  from Tien-Tsin, dated May 27th.  Yesterday a missionary who was  going to Tolu on tho grand canal  was forced to return to Tien-Tsin  ou accouut ^f a fierce fight raging  between Boxers aud Catholic converts. There was heavy firing on  both sides. Four thousand insurgents frara the province of Kwai  Chau ljave invaded the province of  Szechuan, says the Shang-Hai correspondent of thb Standard,Wiring  yesterday, causing ai widespread  panic. It is said that 3000 Yun-  nanese are about to join them.  Many Drowned.  Copenhagen, May 28.���Several  serious accidents have occurred  among the West Icelandic fishermen, many persons being drowned.  A large boat was capsized near .the  West Manna islands, and 29 men  and women perished.   -  MAY GALL EXTRA SESSION  INQUIRY WILL OPEN TODAY  COMMISSIONERS    ARRIVE   FROM  ROSSLAND.  Labor Sympathizers Are Confident That  the Exclusion of tho Chinese  Will Be Secured.  Of United States Congress;  Cedar Rapids, Iowa, May 28.���  During. their journey across Iowa  president McKinley and tho members of his cabinet spent most of  their time readiug and discussing  the published reports of the opinion  of the Supreme Court in the insular  cases. They were much interested  iu the Avay the court divided in the  two cases, The decision in the De  Lima case, if followed in tho Philippines, as it is assumed it will be,  might result in the calling of an  extra session of congress.  In the De Lima case the courfcjle-^  =eided=that=thewdutie^s"i=collectgd_on  Porto Rican goods before congress  enacted the Foraker law wei'o  illegal and must be refunded. It is  presumed that the court, following  precedent, will decide that the  duties collected from the Philippines were also illegal, and that  goods from the Philippines aro subject to free ontry into the United  State's until congress acts. This decision would mean not .only...the  refunding of moneys heretofore  collected, but would open tho ports  of the United States to merchandise  of every description from the  Philippines until congress meets iu  December. It is plaiu that importers might take advantage of  this to ship goods into the United  States through tho Philippines aud  thus defraud the government of its  revenues. Whether the danger  from thio-source is great enough to  warrant the calling of congress in  extra session is one which will be  decided only after full deliberation.  It is possible, however, that this  danger may have been already obviated in the enactment of the  Spooner resolution delegating temporarily to the president the.power  to govern the Philippines. This  may be considered au act of congress within the meaning of the  Downes case, affirming the constitutionality of the Foraker law. But  it is a delicate question, and one  which the president and his advisers will consider in all its bearings  before coining to a conclusion. The  members of the cabinet decline to  discuss the subject for publication.  They united in a message of congratulation to former attorney-  general Greggs, who prepared and  presented the government's case to  the supreme court.  R. C. Clote, chairman of the royal  commission appointed to inquire  into the Chinese and Japanese  question, and commissioners D.J.  Munn of Nevy Westminster and  Chris Foley of Rossland arrived in  Nelson last evening, accompanied  by Charles Wilson, K. C. counsel  for the province, and A. Crawford,-  stenographer.  The commission will open "its inquiry in Nelson this morning, aud  will sit for two days to take such  evidence as may be offered. From  Nelson the commission may go to  Kaslo, but failing in this the taking  of evidence under oath will be  closed in " this city. A trip,  however, is to be made to some of  tho points on Puget sound. This  has been deemed necessary in view  of the evidence submitted on behalf of the ' salmon canning and  lumbering industries on the coast,  where the argument was advanced  that-Chinese and Japanese labor is  necessary to enable those engaged  in them to compete with similar industries in the state of Washington. When some evidence has been  secured showing how the kindred  industries south of the line manage  to get along with Chinese exclusion  and Japanese restricted immigration the commission will move back  to Vancouver, where the arguments  of the lawyers representing the various sides of the question will be  heard. These will include the Chinese and Japanese1 counsels, ..the  -labor counsel'and the counsel for.  the province.   . .,,.']���.'  >; .Chairman Clute is-not a stranger  to Nelson, having sat as "sole commissioner in this city on the troubles growing out of the introduction of the eight-hour law aud the  importation of aliens into the province in violation of the Alien  Labor Act. Touching the work of  the present commission Mr. Clute  said he was not iu a position to  venture any opinion except that  every effort was being made, to  bring out all the facts bearing upon  the effects of Chinese and Japanese  competition in the field of labor,  and also the bearing such employment had upon the industries of the  province, and he thought that in  this respect the work of the commission had been thorough.  Commissioner D. J. Munn, who is  attempting to hold up. the end of  tlie Chinese and Japanese- em^  "ployers, gives ono the impression  that he has got the -worst end of  the argument. He said, however,  that he was doinghis best to present the employers side of the  question and he would not have  undertaken the work unless he intended to make the best of it. In  referring to the evidence which  had been submitted to -the commission Mr. Munn said that there  could be no question but that public sentiment was unanimously opposed to Chinese and Japanese immigration and competition. This he  regarded as quite natural, since  upon sentimental grounds people  naturally preferred to deal with  those of their own race, but when  it came to considering the question  iu its bearing upon the industries of  the province Mr. Muun said in his  opinion the evidence submitted was  by no means one sided.  Chris Foley,-the labor representative on the commission, expressed  himself as highly pleased with the  way in whicli the. evidence was  coming in. He was not prepared  to be interviewed, however, but  did not mind expressing it as his  opinion that the commission would  result in much good.7' He aud commissioner Munn had it pretty hot  sometimes, and he did not think  his brother commissioner could be  as well pleased as himself at the  way things were going.  Charles Wilson, K. C, who is  watching the proceedings on behalf  of the provincial government, does  not allow much to escape him. It  is generally understood that he is  personally opposed to Chinese and  Japanese immigration, arid the labor party look for more' valuable  assistance from him in the final  argument than even from their own  counsel, and it is not likely that  they will be disappointed.  A. Crawford, a Toronto newspaper mau and court reporter, who is  doing the shorthand work ou the  commission, is the least reserved of  the party. He has no hesitation in  expressing what" his /views are,  either with respect to the weight  of the evidence "submitted or the  probable effect which it will have  upon the authorities at Ottawa.  Iu his opinion the evidence shows  that the sentiment of the province  is against 'Chinese and Japanese  immigration and competition, and  as China < has no particular claim  for consideration, he thinks that  the evidence submitted will be  sufficient to "secure their exclusion.  Some different treatment will probably be accorded to the Japanese,  not because they are-any more  desirable, but for international,  reasons; but he thinks-that even in  their case the finding of tho commission will result in the imposition of a head tax.  WALDERSEE   IS   RECALLED  WASHINGTON GOVERNMENT EXPRESSES APPROVAL.  German Press Is Also Pleased at tbe  Withdrawal of the Troops  From China.  THE BOAT CLUB REGATTA  CREWS ARE PUTTING! IN  STIFF  PRACTICE.  Lively   Interest  Manifested   hy   the  Members  Will Warrant7 at Least  Three Meetings This Summer.  A general meeting of the Nelson  Boat Club will be held in Fraternity  hall oh Thursday evening next,"  when several matters of importance  to the club will be considered.  A lively interest has been manifested in. the ^first.-of the club's  regattas wliich has been set for  Thursday, June 0th,. aud the members drawn in the several' creiws  have been putting in some good  practice work. > On Monday., afternoon six of the crews were out and  yesterday morning there "were two  'crews-'out-at-.0:30.- -As;}there are  several'green men in the crews this,  year it js yet.too.early.to pass upon  their respective merits;but from the  interest shown it is evident that  some spirited contests may be expected. Already six- crews have  been drawnfor the regatta aud another is to be selected from the  following: Ernest Meyers, J. A.  Wetmore, George Hodge, J; Newport, E. C. Wragge, R. H. Williams  and T. H. Brown. This will give at  least seven crews instead of four,  the number entered iu the last  regatta, and for the July regatta it  is expected that at least ten crews  will be entered, as the active membership of the club is alreadytreble  what it was last year.  The three-quarter mile course for  the. June regatta will be laid between JlobertsVranch and Jhe.tram^  way company's park, which from  the spectators standpoint, is said  to be much better than the courses  formerly chosen from the club  house. For the convenience of the  oarsmen the tramway compauy has  erected a boat house and a float  will also be in readiness.  A change has been made in ,the  Hedley crew, Frank Clarke replacing F. W. Grier.'and it is not unlikely that other changes * will be  made between now and the regatta, but the crews as at present  constituted are:  li. W. Matthews, bow  ���Frank Clnrko  C. O. Mills-  J. M.

Hedley's men got down  to work, .however, and before a  third of the course .was* covered  were on even terms with the Wiuter  boat. From this on it was au even  thing and ended in a dead heat.  The crews will have another go before the. regatta.  Plague Increasing.  London, May 28.���"The progress  of the bubonic plague here," says  the Hongkong correspondent of the  Times, "is becoming serious. The  death rate is over 30 daily. The  epidemic is the worst known since  1894. The colony requires drastic  sanitary legislation."  Washington, May 28.���The state  department today   replied'"to the  announcement    of    the - German  government that the emperor considered that the time had come for  the recall from China of field marshal count Von Waldersee, expressing the satisfaction of the" government at the announcement.   This  government having already withdrawn its troops, with the exception  of a small guard, intended solely  for   protection of   its  legation in  Pekin, has expressed its views with  regard    to   the   further   military  occupation of China.    In replying  to the memorandum" of the German  government occasion was taken  to  express the high esteem with which  field marshal Von Waldersee has  beeu regarded by the officers of the  United States in   China and   appreciation   for   all   the   personal  courtesies extended by him.  German Press Pleased.  Berlin, May 28.���The German  press, withqut.exceptiou, comments  in terms of approval upon the news  that emperor William has ordered  count Von Waldersee and the German troops to return home. The  reports that negotiations are in  progress between the cabinets of  ,the" powers with reference _to a  joint appointment of a commander  of the troops of the allies remaining in China are semi-offieially confirmed. The Staats Zeitung says it  'hears"that count Von Waldersee's  successor will probably be a Frenchman.'-"     -----     --.'.-'      _���-.--,-.���  Pekin, May 28.���The Chinese  plenipotentiaries have informed the  ministers of the powers that the  court has notified them of a willingness to pay indemnity to the  amount of 450,000,000 taels, but the  court objects to 4 per cent interest.  Fairbanks for President.  Chicago, Illinois, May 28.���Senator Fairbanks of Indiana was formally announced today as a candidate for president before the Republican National Convention of  1904. Harry S. New, Republican  national committeeman from Indiana, who arrived-iu Chicago today,  is authority for the statement that  Indiana will be behind Mr. Fairbanks in his race, for the honor.  "Senator Fairbanks will be sup-  =ported=by-a���solid^delegatiblffTFiwir  Indiana," said Mr. New; "the whole  state will be back of him at the  next national convention. lie is  the logical candidate of tho party,  and with his nomination Indiana  will be assured to the Republicans."  Russia Agrees.  London, May 29.���Dr. Morrison,  wiring to the Times from Pekiu,  says: "M. De Giers has announced  that Russia agrees tothe formation  of a mixed commission, such as is  provided for in the British proposal.  It is expected that Russia will also  agree to Great Britain's indemnity  proposals. Count von W^'dersee  has written to the ministers of the  powers proposing that the provisional government of Tien Tsin shall  continue until the last troops have  been withdrawn, but the ministers  are generally in favor of permitting  China to resume the government  forthwith."  The Enemy of AIL  Vienna, May 28.���The Neusta'  Winer Tageblatt, in the course of  an article advocating the formation'  of an European customs league  against the United;...States, says:  "America is the common enemy of  all; an enemy so formidable that  each European country must  cumb unless leagued with all  rest of Europe. Even united  rope will have a hard fight."  suc-  the  Eu-  Kaiser Hard to Guard.  Berlin, May 28.���That the police  of Berlin may be the better able to  attend to the kaiser's personal  safety, it has now been arranged  that they are to know fully an  hour before the kaiser drives out  the exact time when the horses are  ordered.   Then every available mau  is on the streets through, which it  is likely that his majesty will pass  But   it   often   happens   that   the  kaiser, after ordering his carriage,  keeps it waiting for an hour, and  perhaps at the last moment gives  orders to drive through streets in  which   the    police    least    expect  him.       He     has     given     orders  that     the      police     along     his  route     are      never      to     salute  him    nor   look    at   him.      They  are   to   face   the   direction    from  which his carriage is coming, but  they are to watch the crowds, not  the kaiser.     Further instructions  have been given to place a greater  number   of   policemen    in    plain  clothes   along   the   kaiser's route.  These are to mix with the crowd  and listen to conversation, casual  remarks, etc., On railway journeys  the precautions are to be redoubled.  The public aro to be rigorously excluded from railway stations during  the passage of the imperial train.  The   guards   in  the Schloss have  been   doubled.     The  kaiser looks  anything but well.  French Soldiers Capture a Town.  Paris, May 28.���A dispatch received here from general Voyron at  Tien Tsin, dated May 25, says that  a reconnoitering party came upon  a walled town 15 kilometers east of  Ting Chau. The town authorities  refused to open the gates, where-''  upon the. French artillery opened  fire. The wall was breached and  the town taken. One French infantryman was wounded. General  Bailloud is scouring the country  with a column of Freneh troops and  is supporting the Chinese regulars.  Wouldn't Stand for It.

Washington, May 28.���The secretary of the treasury aud treasurer of the United States were today  sued for the .comfortable sum of  $79,000,000. This is the largest  sura ever asked by a litigant in the  local courts. John A. Kuykendall,  as administrator for the estate of  Charles Durkee, filed suit in the  District of Columbia supreme court  against Lyman J. Gage and Ellis II.  Roberts, demanding an accounting  in cheir official capacity. The court  is asked to compel the defendants  -to account=for-certain=trust���funds-  in their possession. These funds, it  is explained, consist of money collected under the direction of the  president of the United States from  the Union Pacific and Central Pacific aud other railroad companies  due the estate of Charles Durkee.  Durkee, it is stated, was a citizen  of the territory of Utah, and died  January 14th, 1876, at which time  he was governor of the territory.  He is said to have deposited in the  treasury Pacific railroad stock  which has never been returned. It  is also stated that Kuykendall has  filed the necessary evidence to establish the validity of the claim  with the executive department of  the government, and that it has  been adjudicated and forwarded to  the warrant division of the treasury department for payment. It is  also alleged that the chief clerk of  the warrant division has refused to  sign a letter acknowledging the receipt of the claim, and that treasurer Roberts refuses to pay the  sum named to the representatives  of the Durkee estate.  Alexander Is Obliging.  London, May 29.���A report is  current here, says the Odessa correspondent of the Staudard, on  apparently good authority, that  king Alexander of Servia has declared to Russia his readiness,  should he have no heir, to bequeath  the Servian throne to prince Danilo  of Montenegro, leaving the future  to decide the question of uniting  Servia and Montenegro under one  crown.

A foreman comes  on from Boston every Monday and:  returns on Friday night.    Mr. Hill  has stated that his wife and daughters will be here about June 1st, at:  which time the apartments will be  ready for them.   Mr. Hill was not '.  in the city yesterday and his plans .,-,  concerning his palatial residence iu  St. Paul could not be learned.  Mr. Hill's determination to  become   one   of   the colony of. New  York   millionaires comes as a surprise to his friends 'in Wall street,  to whom ��� he has ever stated that  he was   a   farmer, unused   to "the  ways of  the  great metropolis aiid  not desirous  of  increasing his ac-���  quaintance.,   To a reporter who interviewed him just after the panic  occasioned ' by the, boom in North- ���  ern' Pacific 15eT"said: '"irdon'fkhow^  anything  about New York  or its-,  ways   and less  about Wall  street.  You must remember I am but aplain '  farmer from Hazelbrush and   the  ways of the metropolis are new to  me." At the timo Mr. Hill made this  statement   he  had already signed,  the lease for his apartments  in the  Bolkenhayn, and had  made up his,  mind  to get a  closer A'iow of the  city's methods  by becoming one of  its residents.  Mr. Hill's recent prominence in  the street and his alliance with Mr.  Morgan are believed to have moved  the Northwestern magnate to become a New Yorker, so that he  could be ou the ground and watch  happenings in the Street. To do  this as he has been doing it up to  the present time would necessitate  Iong~absences from his family; to  which his devotion is proverbial,  and so he has decided to bring them  here. The Bolkenhayn is really a  home annex of the Savoy, being  run under the same management.  Mr. Hill will have for neighbors in  the house Watson Dickerman, J. B.

We venture to  think that the framers of the  United States constitution would  have laughed at the possibility of  such a development as incredible.

The   Record is  not posted as to what caused the  split.   When the Helmcken crowd  supposed      they     had     sufficient  strength   to   "down''    the    Dunsmuir government, one of the crowd  is said to have approached Smith  Curtis   with   a   proposition.    The  proposition is said to have been as  follows: "We have got seven mem-  " bers sure, and two more will come  " to us "at the  right time.    The Op-  " position  number eight,  and   the  " Independents have three.    Pooley  " is sick aud not able to get to the  " house.   We have the government  " sure.   Now, you join us, and  the  " Opposition and the  Independents  " can have three members of the  " cabinet and we will tako the other  " three; but it must be understood  " that Joseph is not to be one of the  " ministers."    Smith Curtis, so it is  said,   jumped   at   the.proposition,  and the Rossland Miner, his organ,  came out the next day and lauded  Helmcken and Curtis to the skies as  heaven-born leaders of  men.    Curtis," so it is  said,  had* the Opposition   leader   call   a   caucus, and  the proposition was laid before it.  The proposition was turned down,  aud Curtis walked out of the caucus a changed man.   The next day  in the house he announced that he  could no longer follow Joseph; that  henceforth   he   intended   to be   a  supporter   of    tho    Liberal-Labor  party   (of   wliich   lie   and   James  Wilks of Nelson aro  the sponsors).  The   farewell   to   Joseph was   received   iu   solemn   silence   in   the  house, but  when the speaker re-  MAPS OP NELSON...  '...'..ale  MEMO.

PIANOS TO  RENT.  1'erred to his new political affiliations lie was enthusiastically  applauded by the full strength of  the Labor party���the member from  Nanaimo City, Mr. .Hawthorn-*  thwaite. That is how the split  came about between Joseph Martin  and Smith Curtis. Helmcken and  his crowd were anxious to sacrifice  Dunsmuir so as to be in a position  to help Jim Hill and the V. V. & E.  railway. Smith Curtis was willing  to shove Martin into the background so long as he (Curtis) could  get office aud help Helmcken help  Hill. But Joseph Martin has mote  political horse sense in a minute  than such men as Helmcken and  Curtis can acquire in a lifetime. He  turned Curtis down, and by so  doing clipped the claws of the  Helmcken strikers.  This relations between the local  brewers and some of the local retail  liquor dealers are not as amicable  as they might be.     The brewers  claini   they   are helping  to make  Nelson   a   town; that   the capital  they have invested in buildings and  plant aggregates a large sum; that  their employees all live in the town.  In   other words, they claim they  are   manufacturers���a    class   that  Nelson must encourage, if the town  is to be something   more than a  mere country trading place.   They  say, all things  considered, it is only  fair   that  the  patronage   of local  liquor dealers should be given them  in  preference to brewers in - Spokane and other outside places. The  Trihune has always stood for the  upbuilding of Nelson, aud its every  effort has been in the direction of  educating people up to the idea of  patronizing home industries.   TJie  retail liquor dealers of Nelson have  had  their   privileges    well    safeguarded, and  they  should appreciate the situation and not antagonize, tp too great an  extent,  enter -  Whii.b Smith Curtis at Victoria  was playing to put Martin in the  background, his political ally, James  Wilks, was laying pipe to carry  Kootenay. He (Wilks) was to contest Nelson riding, and to that end  his followers at once began a campaign of mud-throwing. The members for Nelson and Slocan were  denounced as "no good" and "traitors." No epithet was mean enough  to use against "Bob" Green and  John Houston. These mitd-throw-  er3 are still at work, but their claws  are being clipped, and were an  election held tomorrow thoy would  not be a factor that would count  for much. ���    ��� ��� *  "prises that.are"almost sole!jHIepen-  dent on the town in which they aire  doing business. But human nature  is much the same the world over.  Few men, or women either, will  sacrifice creature comforts for mere  sentiment, and fewer still will purchase a home-made article if it costs  more thon a similar article made  elsewhere.  TiiK mail service between Nelson  and Rossland is most wretched. Although trains leave both places at  7 o'clock in the-morning and reach  both places at 11 o'clock, or in four  hours, all mail matter takes a  roundabout trip through the United  States, and the mail that leave's  Rossland for Nelson is twelve hours  in transit. Tho blockheads who  manage our postal facilities cannot  see why a c'hange should be made,  and our member of parliament is so  busy with more weightier matters  that he overlooks it.  were not so employed. This should  be clearly thown to the comtuisbion,  and the men to do it are the men  who, somehow, manage to live in  Nelsou without "employing or patronizing the Chinese. How many  such men are there in Nelson?  E. O.

Mr. Smith is a well-  meaning but peppery old gentleman. It is safe to say that his riding did not lose a dollar through  his hanging on to tlie coat-tails of  Smith Curtis.

CANNIBALISM   IN   AFRICA  A Vivid Exposure.  Bkussels, May 28.���A sensation  has been caused by a book entitled  "Iu tlie Congo," just published, tho  author of wliich is Mi Mandet-  Gmneey. Ifc contains a vivid exposure of the cannibalism whicli is  still tolerated iu that part .of  Africa which is under either French  or Belgian rule. "This morning  about 7 o'clock," says tlie author, "a  man  was executed.   A   rope   was  placed, around his neck  and with it  he was hung from a tree at a height  '  of about thirty feet.    At 10 o'clock  the  chief of his village  appeared,  carrying  in  a  basket a hen, some  eggs and a  bottle of bmudy, and  requested us  to  let him  take the  body  of  the  victim,  since it  was  '.that   of   his own brothetv   Then,  without the slightest hesitation, he  explained that he desired to eat the  body.     The  necessary   permission  being granted, the chief told one of  his   wives,  two   of   whom  accompanied him, to cut down the body,  and  at   once she  climbed  up  the  tree  and  severed the  rope.      The  chief then cut a leg from the body,  and after his wives  had  cooked  it  they all sat down and ate ifc.   Soon  afterward they went home,  taking  with   them  the  remainder of  the  body, with the intention of eating  it in the evening.   In market places  may very often be seen a man holding by a short ropo a slave,  who is  generally   a boy   about   14  or 15  years old, aud  whose  body is covered with oil, so that it has a fine,  giossy appearance.     For weeks the  boy   has  been  carefully fattened,  and now his master has brought  him to market to 9ell him,". just as  ho would bring any. other animal.  That the boy knows the fate which  is in storo for him is certain, yet no  one   could be   more indifferent or  .stolid than  he.      Epicures  gather  nround him and feel his flesh iii order to test its quality, while others  mark out with chalk the portions  which they are willing to purchase."  Changes in Royal Household.  Sweeping changes were inaugurated recently in the royal establishments at Windsor. The elder  servants were pensioned. Fraser,  tho late queen's police superintendent, goes into retirement, and head  keepers and gardeners disappear  into the obscurity .of the pension  list. Tiie. prince consort's rooms  wliich had been closed for many  years by queen Victoria's orders,  =ha-ve.=b.een=opened=aud=refm*M3hed=  in modern style, and the state  apartments have been transformed  into rooms where the members of  the royal family can live iu comfort. The Jubilee presents and  many favorite pictures of queen  Victoria have been sent to London  and the queen's personal belongings .have been distributed among  the members of her family.  The collies have been distributed  among the people of Windsor and  various princesses. King Edward  and queen Alexandra care little for  anything but pugs and terriers.  Next month 5000 dozens of costly  wine from the late queen's cellars  will be sold at public auction in  London. Each bottle will have the  royal label on it. Various reasons  are given for this almost unprecedented action. The most probable  consists in the fact that royal hospitality is now generally confined  to whiskey and soda, and champagne, and to the lapse of the practice by whicli many court functionaries formerly received daily a bottle of Madeira or Port as part of  their salaries.

At  Sterling, Illinois, a company is  forming for the purpose of building  a complete line of funeral trolley  cars. The hearse is to be an  elaborate affair. Its upper part  will be composed mainly of plate  glass, the coflin resting in the  middle of .the car on a stand. Tlie  motorman is shut off from tho main  portion of the car, and privacy is  assured for the dead. Tlio car will  be black. Behind the trolley hearse  "Tl'ition of affairs in Brazil is scarcely  better. The Brazilian government  has no department- corresponding  to our Geographical or Coast and  Geodetic Surveys. Tiie only exploring dono lias been carried on by tlie  states. There are large tracts in  (ho northern part of Brazil which  have never been crossed, as far as  is known, by any white man.  Couldn't Stand Prosperity.  Special master Joseph C. Cross,  appointed by the court of chancery  of Now Jersey to take evidence in  the -suit foio divorce instituted by  Mi-h. Ann Kent against her husband, William H. Kent of Summit,  N. J., filed his report recently, recommending the granting of a decree. Rev. Dr. Hooper, pastor of  the Presbyterian church* at New  Providence, married the couple on  April 22. 1SS);J. The bride was then  53 years of age. The bridegroom,  who hai been 'her coachman, was  only IS. The marriage caused a  great sensation. Mrs. Kent's first  husband was Alexander Neary. She  owned considerable real estate and  was possessed of a large amount of  money. Shortly after their marriage Kent purchased somo valuable trotting horses and was seen  driving wifch other women. Mrs.  Koufc hired a detective and then  began an action for divorce. Kent  is now a brakeman on the Delaware, Lackawanna & Western Railroad.   Presbyterians Adjourn.

Its sides willJ be of  plate glass, and there will be  refrigerating arrangements for  keeping the flowers fresh. Next  will come a car for relatives and  friends of the dead. The interior  will bo so arranged that the seats  will look as much as possible like  those of a private carriage. Thero  will bo practically three carriages  to each car.  J. It. Johnson, president of the  Rock Falls Manufacturing Company of Sterling, is organizing tho  funeral trolley road. The tracks  for this road will pass through the  cities of Rockford, Oregon, Byron,  Dickson and Rock. Falls. These  places are manufacturing centers,  and the introduction of trolley  funerals will save the working people a great deal of money. Arrangements are being made to have  the tracks for the funeral cars enter the various cemeteries near the  cities named, and the principal  churches of these places will be  along the line of route. There is a  certain amount of prejudice against  the trolley funeral in the district  mentioned, but president Johnson  feels confident that as soon as the  public sees how finely the cars are  -appointed- this sentiment will  vanish. -  Unexplored South America.  South America is now the least  known of all the continents. It  has much larger areas which have  never been visited by white men  than -Africa. Lay this to the Monroe doctrine, if you like. What's  the use of Europeans exploring the  place when Uncle. Sam won't let  them annex ifc ? Most of the cities  along tho coast of South America  were settled in the Columbian era.  Civilization is in fact much older  there than in North America. Yet  for nearly three hundred -.years  there has nofc been much organized  attempt to explore the interior.  The first expedition sent out by a  S nith American goyernment was in  1S75. Many of these countries are  withoufc exact maps of their own  territory. Most of tho maps in use  havo been made by explorers from  Europe or the United States.  The greater part of the immense  tract of land iu the middle of the  continent from Venezuela to Chili  has not yet reached tho roughest  pioneer state of settlement. A con-*  sidcrable part of Colombia is still  wholly unknown. Tho soveral  Atlantic states, even as far north as  Uruguay, have many blank sections  on their maps. The Guiana?,' except for a strip along thejeoast, are  practical jy unknown.      The^coii^  SAVINC?  THK   CUKKKKT   R.  BANK   DEPARTMENT.

P., was in  Winnipeg yesterday ou his w.-iy  home.  oTlio water in Kootenay lake  yesterday was still eight feet below  the limit reached in 1898.  All free miners' licenses will lapse'  on Friday. Three days remain in  whieh to renew certi-Scates aud  save trouble.  Born, at the Kootenay Lake  General Hospital, yesterday, to the  wife of Philip Henry Small, a  daughter.  ��� W. A. McLean will commence  work today putting in a new bridge  over Anderson' creek, ou the road to  Florence park. c  .The local liberals meet on Thursday night to elect association officers for the" ensuing year. Only  the "old.guard" need apply.  **>��J. Linblad has completed the  work of repairing the wagon road  to the Silver King, which was damaged by the recent freshet.  Cottonwood creek commenced to���  rise again yesterday morning, and  the driftwood moving in the stream  furnished employment to a considerable number of men.  A meeting of the "trades procession committee of tiie Dominion  Day celebration will be held in the  office of P. Burns <fc Company on  Thursday evening at 8 o'clock.  Alan Forrester, provincial constable at Robson, arrived in Nelson  yesterday. He , will take W. D.  Brewster over to Greenwood today  to stand trial upon a charge of  burglary.  A resident of Lake street undertook to call up a district messenger  yesterday by the messenger call  box and got the fire department  instead. The department responded  promptly.  James G. McLean of Rossland is  tho latest arrival at the Nelson jail.  He was sentenced to six months'  _imprisonmentby"PrMcLrForin7act-  ing county court judge, upon a  charge of assault.  R. Roisterer & Co., who.two years  ago had what many conceded to be  the best float in the Dominion Day  trade procession, have consented to  prepare another float for'the approaching celebration.  Tierney & McPhail have about 30  men'with 10 teams at work on the  long cut at Castlegar which will  form vthe approach to the railway  bridge across the Columbia. They  have fully six. months' work ahead  of them.  The city authorities should see to  it that the obstructions on the  street at the Hotel Phair corner are  removed. No good reason carl be  given why contractors should keep  a street in such a condition for so  great a length of time.  Application will be made before  justice    Martin    at   Rossland    on  Friday for a "writ of habeas corpus  on behalf of. Belva McKinley,  who  was sentenced;to, six months' imprisonment   bjr magistrate Crease  upon a charge"6f..tKeft.  7 The  Knights  of  Pythias  report  theit recent  excursion to Kokanee  ;creek a financial success.   Although  'under   heavy   initial  expense,   iri-  ieluding $350 spent in fixing  up the  Kokanee creek grounds,  there will  be a surplus of something like $100.  The Columbia river rose 18 inches  in the 24 hours at Robson yesterday. The water is now too high to  admit of proceeding with the superstructure of the railway bridge, and  it is not likely that anything will  be done with the bridge for several  weeks. *  Letters   of   administration have  been issued to the public ad miuistra-  torto wind up tho estate of the late  Richard Ashworth, who formerly  resided in Ainsworth. The estate  consists of a 4-15 interest in somo  mining properties, the value of  which is placed at $1200.  The Imperial Mines. Limited, as  the owners of the Climax mineral  claim, in the Goat River mining  division, have began an adverse  action against the Valparaiso Gold  Mining Company, in respect to the  government mineral claim. The  properties in dispute are about  eighteen miles from Pilot Bay.  A meeting of the members of the  Nelson lacrosse club will bo held at  the Hume hotel this evening at 8:30  o'clock for the purpose of perfecting  the club organization. All those  interested in lacrosse are invited to  attend. An attempt is being made  to perfect a lacrosse league composed of Nelson, Rossland, Grand  Forks and Greenwood. The Grand  Forks team is already in practice  and if sufficient interest can be  stirred up in Nelson and the other  two cities-interesting games of  lacrosse may be expected this  season.  The meeting of tlie retail grocers  of this city, whicli was called for  this evening in the Miners' Union  hall for the purpose of electing officers and perfecting their organization, may be postponed unless word  is received from "Winnipeg today-.  The bylaws of the association were  recently submitted to the Hudson's  Bay Company's officials for their  approval with a view to securing  the entrance of the Hudson's Bay  Company into the association, and  pending a reply the work of electing .officers will probably be deferred.  Assays Are Satisfactory.  Jeff Steele yesterday received  assays on two samples of ore taken  from the ledges on the King of  Forty-nine and Cauadiaii Boy  claims which he is developing on  Forty-nine creek. The Canadian  Boy adjoins the May and Jennie  property and Steele is satisfied that  he has the May and Jennie ledge'in  both claims. An assay from what  he considers to' be the May and  Jennie ledge gave returns of $9.70  in gold-and an assay from a cross  ltdge of quartz' gave, returns of  $12.S0. ,  " *   Northport and Nelson on the.Diamond.  There is not likely to be anything  in the way of professional baseball  in the Kootenays this summer, and  it is well that it': is- :likely to be so.  _The sport will be cleaner, even if  the games-are not so scientific. As  far as reports have been made public, the scores of the games played  this year indicate good contests.  The towns interested so far are  Rossland, Trail, Kaslo, Sandon,  New Denver and Nelson. Nelson  and Northport have arranged to  play a game in Nelson at an early  date, and a special train will bring  every resident of the Smelter City  along to give the "Smoke-eaters"  backing.      Will It-Be Five-Cent Beer?  "The fight that is now on between  some of the breweries and the  saloons can only have one result,  that is, five-cent-beer. This is not  at all to the liking of the owners of  the saloons who, while catering to  the-tastesof-their-customers���have-  not "boycotted" the home breweries. These saloons try to satisfy  the demands of their patrons, and  some of them keep in stock a half-  dozen brands of beer. There are  other saloons that discriminate  against the home breweries, and  will not sell their products. In  other towns where like difficulties  have occurred the foreign beer has  been ousted from the market by a  cut in prices. Five-cent beer  always does the work.  Liberals Protesting Vigorously.  The Liberals of Nelson do not  propose to allow the postoffice  building contractors to wiggle out  of their contract by getting permission to change the material to  be used in the building. They claim  that the local contractors figured  on using the materials named in the  specifications, and that it would be  unfair now to allow an eastern  contractor, after he has found that  he has bid too low, the privilege of  substituting cheap material for  dear material. The Liberals are  right in their contention./ If they  succeed in breaking a few of the  eastern contractors who are so hoggish as to want the few public jobs  teat are doled out to British Columbia, no one in the province  would shed a tear. Last night the  Liberals met and wired a protest to  Ottawa.  Hitch Was Over the Contract.  AV. F. Tye, chief engineer of the  C. P. R. construction, and J. G.  Sullivan, resident engineer at Trail,  passed through Nelson' yesterday  for tho Lardeau. In an interview  with a Trihunb representative last  evening Mr. Sullivan said the news- j  ssssb  TELEPHONE 27  ih:.   zb^zeirs Sc oo.  PAINTS, OILS /\N0 GLASS.  GARDEN  TOOLS.

The hitch which  had occurred was altogether over  the contract. This, however, had  been satisfactorily arranged and  work would be carried forward, as  rapidly as possible.- Welch has the  contract aud hits',sublet to Porter  Brothers and Carlson.  Holdup Didn't Work.  Greenwood, May 28.���[Special to  The Tribune.]���Bob Hogan, cook;  L. C. Barnes, miner, aud Alexander  Glencross, a'tinhorn gambler, are  under arrest charged with conspiring to hold up.Frank McMoogau on  the stage road between here and  Phoenix. Wheu arrested. Hogan  had on his person a 45- Colt's revolver, aud Glencross' valise contained a complete opium-smoking  outfit. Barnes made a full confession to the officers, implicating the  others. McMoogau runs gambling  tables here, and early every Sunday morning has beeu in the habit  of taking up to Phoenix from $1500  to $4000. This the'prisoners learned  and decided to rob him. Three  times they made'the attempt, hiding by^the road, but circumstances  prevented their carrying their  scheme to a successful conclusion.  Sunday a final attempt was to have  been made,' but McMoogan was-  warned by provincial officer Joe  Darraugh. Meanwhile the local  police got a tip from Joe Wilson,  who had beeu approached by  Barnes to take. a hand but had refused.    .'   Tariff Eeduction.  Vancouver, May 28.-���A Winnipeg special says: Premier Roblin announced today that a 7 1-2 per cent  reduction -on all tariffs affecting  trade will be made on all the old  Northern Pacific lines in Manitoba  now being operated ���by the Manitoba government.
