 WMM. ^-  ^^^^i^!^mmsmsm^.\  ^i^Si___t_________ta  Minoral Production, of British Columbia in 1000  $16,407,645  "^^mm^^  Mineral Produotion of Kooterjty iij 1��00  $10,562,032  NINTH YEAR  NELSON, B. C., FRIDAY MORNING, JUNE-.7,  1901  PRICE FIVE CENTS  MUST STAND THEIR TRIAL  PRISONERS ROWLEN AND BLOOMFIELD  COMMITTED.  Magistrate Crease Ruled Out Evidence  Eearing on the Ownership of the  Hat   in   the   Case.  The preliminary hearing in tlie  case against Frank Rowlen and  Frederick Bloomfield, charged witli  tlie Sunday morning robbery in  which Charles Johnson, the Swede,  was relieved of a few dollars in  silver on Hall street, was concluded  before police -magistrate XJreaso  yesterday 'afternoon,-and resulted  in.both prisoners being committed  to stand their trial.  Tlie prosecution attempted to  fasten tho ownership of the hard  hat found by Johnson upon Bloomfield, by some admissions which  Bloomfield was alleged to have  made to chief Jarvis after his  arrest, but this evidence the magis--  trate refused to admit. ..The "other  evidence offered-hy the chief was iu  the main of a corroborative character. ^ .  Tlio chief evidence of constable  Heavener was directed against the  prisoner Rowlen, and consisted in  the repetition of the statement  which he alleged Rowlen made at  the timo of his arrest, touching his  movements and whereabouts on the  morning of the robbery. Heavener  , tMsbilied that Itowlen stated he had  retired to bed at 11, o'clock on the  Saturday night previous to the  robbery and that lie had remained  in bed until 1 o'clock Sunday niorn-  i>'ig when he started out to take a  walk, a statement which was somewhat out of joint Avith the testimony of several witnesses who said  they had seen Rowlen at various  places between the hours mentioned.  Failing to get in tho evidence of  chief .Jarvis as to the ownership of  the hat found, tho evidence of A.  Gardnerrwas taken, who testified to  seeing Bloomfield after the robbery, who was then wearing a soft  hat. Having seen Bloomfield wearing a hard hat before, the witness  said he was moved to ask Bloomfield what he had done witU his  dice-box, who in reply intimated  that'he had lost it.  The prisoners were then committed for trial, no application for bail  having been made.  Want No More Troops.  Montreal, June G.���The Star's  London cable says: Much surprise  is expressed among Anglo-Canadians at the announcement of the  war office that the Imperial govern-  iuent~liad"(lecl i ued~wi t! J~tliankirtlTe~  offer of the Dominion government  to furnish another cavalry corps  for service in South Africa, holding  that at the present stage of the  war and with the large number of  troops now in the field it was  hardly necessary to ask Canada to  furnish another,uontingent. Only  last night Hon! Mr. Broderick,  secretary of war, said lord Kitchener had asked last January that if  possible the colonies should be induced to supply more contingents,  because the colonists had done such  excellent service. The general feeling is that there is a want of new  troops to replace thoso who have  become stale owing to the length of  the conflict. It is considered that  this is the chief cause of the protraction of the war.  Defending British Locomotives.  London7, June 0.���Sir Alfred  Hickman, ex-president of the British Iron Trades Association, has  written another letter to lord  George Hamilton, the Indian secretary, concerning American locomotives, citing the reply of lord Cromer, the British agent in Egypt,  relative to the consumption of coal  by British and foreigu engines iu  Egypt. Lord Cromer said a definite report could not be given for  two months, but major Johnston  thinks the Americans average 10  per cent more coal than tlie other  ���types. Sir Alfred comments as follows: "This, so far, confirms the.reports from Burmah. aud Assam, and  if correct would make American  engines dear at a gift. With reference to the claim that Americans  are superior in chemical research, I  venture to point out that the  ^achievements in metallurgy of Hall,  Neilsen, Bessemer, Siemens, Martin,  Galchrist, Thomas aud Robert S.  Austin are not due to American research. I would respectfully invite  you to name any American who  could claim rank with them."  PLAGES HAVE BEEN DRAWN  Another Boer Defeat.  Pretoria, June 5.���Colonel Wilson, with 240 of Kitchener's scouts,  surprised and routed 400 Boers belonging to Beyer's command 34  miles west of Warm Baths. The  Boers resisted stubbornly, but finally broke and fled; leaving 37 dead,  100 prisoners and all their wagons  and supplies, including 8000 cattle,  in the hands of the British. The  loss of the latter was three men  killed aud 15 wounded. Beyer's  main command arrived oh the scene  soon after . the engagement, but  failed in an attempt to recapture  the'supplies, Beyer was left practically without any transport or  supplies.  BOSTON'S   GUP   DEFENDER  Also. Meets With an Accident.  Boston, June 0.���The \ cup defender candidate' Independence had  her second trial today. Yachting  conditions were perfect. As on  Monday, she made very little commotion and seemed to' bo gliding  along on top of the wavesi rather  than through them. For eight  minutes captain Haff kept her  going -to-starboard, then easing off  thesheets, he gave the Independence  her head. Off to the windward she  flew. How fast she was going could  not be judged, but she easily  dropped the steam craft.  Boston, June 6.���Tho Lawson  yacht Independence in her second  sail trial today met with the first  accident, not very serious���a jamming of tho steering gear, but sufficient to stop the trial after au hour  and a half af splendid sailing. During the sail she attained a speed on  a reach of a little over three miles  of 13 1-2 nautical miles an hour.  Tho accident led very unexpectedly  to a most thorough test of the  yacht's rigging and her big. steel  mast." Through the sudden gybing,  without preventer stays being run  back to take up the strain, the result shows that it requires-'a pretty  severe blow to dismast the Boston  yacht. The big boom, swung by a  15-knot breeze, swept over the  stern of the yacht at a tremendous'  speed, captain Half being unable to  prevent it. It was so sudden that  none of the crew were aft with the  preventer tackle and the big mast  had to stand the entire weight of  the sail and boom. There was not  a-'man on the boat who did not  think the mast would go, but the  big steel spar stood the strain, aud  the designer, skipper and crew  have the greatest confidence in it  in consequence of this severe  test.  .     May Be Further Trouble.  "New- York, June 0.���According"  to a special to the World from  Albany five men employed by the'  United Traction Company and who  took a leading part in the late tie-  up have been discharged, and all  declare they were dismissed because of their connection with the  Amalgamated Association of Street  Car Employees. They complained  to their local branches of the  amalgamated association and the  dismissals were discussed for two  hours behind closed doors. At the  close of the meeting president  Sheehan said: "We shall make a  formal protest against the discharge  of these five men to the board of  directors of the Uuited Traction  Company Saturday morning. Our  late agreement with the company  was that such cases should be  arbitrated. We intend they shall  be."   Incendiary Foiled.  New York, June 0.���An attempt  was made early this morning to  burn St. John's college and seminary, Brooklyn, in which 18 priests  and 40 seminarians were quartered.  Kerosene was scattered about three  widely separated bedrooms on the  ground floor and then ignited. The  smoke of the blazing oil was so  dense, however, that it awakened  the priests and the purpose of the  firebug was defeated. A discharged  employee is supposed to be the man,  but there is no  proof against  him.  The Hague Arbitrators,  Berlin-, June (!.���The Hamburger  Correspondent .publishes a dispatch  from The Hague asserting that the  arbitration court yesterday held a  secret session regarding the war iu  South Africa.  FOR  THE  FOUR-OARED   CONTEST  TOMORROW.  If  Enthusiasm   Means Anything  the  Nelson Boat Club's Regatta Should  Be a Record Breaker.  A meeting of.the strokes of the  several crews, to compete in the  Nelson Boat Clubs fours in tomorrow's regatta, was held yesterday  for the purpose of drawing places.  As there are nine crews entered it  was decided, in preference to a bye,  to have two of the crews row off  their heat this evening, the winning  crews to enter the contest with the  remaining seven. As the result of  the drawing the Fletcher and Dewar  crews will row off their heat this  evening, the winning crew to meet  Hodge as the first event ou S itur-  day's card.   7.  The other drawings resulted as  follows:"'-��� Day vs.. Beaven, Hedley  vs. Winter," and Forde vs. Thomson.  The winner in the first of these  heats will meet the winner in the  Hodge heat. The winners in the  last two heats will also go against  each other, and the winners in the  two groups will row in the final.  Saturday's regatta will probably  see the last of the., club's present  boats, as the new coxless lapstreaks  are expected to arrive from Vancouver in time for the July meet.  These boats are being built by William Watts and will be a great improvement upon the present ones.  At'the meeting of the committee  last evening it was decided to make  a change in the course for the fours,  there being too much water at the  tramway park to permit any view  of the races. The course will now  be laid along in front of the old  shipyard with the finish iu front of  the smelter bathing house.  '; The judges of the "fours will "be  superintendent Downie and T. G.  Procter, and the starters will be��A.  H. Buchanan and H. H. Playford.  Between the heats -in the fours  some double sculls, mixed sculls  and canoe races will be pulled off,  of which alderman Selous will have  charge.  The C. P. R. houseboat, T. G.  Procter's houseboat and Dr.  LaBau's steam lau rich Donna have  been placed at the disposal*of the  boat club for the day.  The first heat in the fours will be'  rowed  this  evening  at   7   o'clock,  between  the Fletcher and  Dewar  crews, over a course from the sampling works to the city wharf.  Arrangements are now being  made with the Canadian Pacific  Railway Company,with a view to^  "havh~ig~'the steamer Moyie-"take~iiT  the races. If this arrangement can  be carried; out the Moyie will leave  the city wharf at 1:30 and return  at 0 o'clock, thus affording a very  pleasant outing and an excellent  view of the races at a charge of  twenty-five cents. A definite announcement with respect to the  Moyie will be made tomorrow  morning.    A Comparison.  London, June 0.���The Midland  Railway Company since the latter  half of 1890 has been using forty  American locomotives. Samuel  Johnson, superintendent of the  locomotive department of the'company will say iu the Daily Mail  tomorrow that the results of six  months' comparative tests made  with standard Midland good engines in the same condition showed  the extra working cost of the  American locomotive over the British .to be from 20 to 25 per cent in  fuel, 50 per cent in oil and 00 pot-  cent in repairs. Superintendent  Johnson explains, however, that  American methods of handling engines differ from English  methods.  Alleged Frauds in Horse Buying.  London, June 0.���.After a long  and somewhat embittered discussion of the policy of the war ofiice  in buying horses for use iu South  Africa, the house of commons tonight, by a vote of 1H9 to 00, voted  the sum of ��15,779,000 for transports and remounts. Sir Blundell  Maple, Conservative, asserted that  British officers who had been sent  to Hungary and Austria had purchased broken-down animals at extravagant prices and divided with  the  sellers  the price   charged the  British government above the actual cost. He demanded the appointment of a committee of inquiry. Lord Stanley, financial secretary of the war 'office, said an inquiry would be held into the matter. -"'.���������'.'���  It is understood that the charges  made by Sir Blundell Maple areof  a very serious character. It is asserted that in one case an officer  netted ��5000 r in the purchase of  horses in Hungary.  En Route Home.  Berlin, June 0.���The war office  has received the following dispatch  from count von Waldersee, dated  Tien-Tsin, Tuesday, June 4th: "I  have now resigned the functions of  commander-in-chief aud today am  leaving China by way of Tokio.  Strict measures have been taken  -here to avoid collisions between the  various contingents. In company  with a large German detachment I  attended the funeral of the French  soldiers killed in the recent affray."  "Father of the Elks" Dead.  New York, June 0.���George W.  Cumberland, known to the American stage as George W. Thompson,  "Father of the Elks," is dead in  Brooklyn from blood poisoning following an operation upon his hand.  Funeral services will be held tomorrow. He was at one time deputy  exalted ruler' of the Elks of the  United States.  "Desperate Lawbreaker.  Ulrichville, Ohio, June 6.���J. P.  Carey, a leading business man who  had been fined t for violating an  ordinance, today entered the  mayor's office and threatened to,  kill mayor Reed and health officer  McCollara.

PLAINT OF A COURT LADY  LOANED   HER  MONEY   TO   PRINCESS   AMELIA  And   Now* Sues-to-Recover-It���The  Ubiquitous-American Figures  in the Case.  Berlin, June 6.���A sensational  case began today in the First District Court of Berlin! The plaintiff, Anna Milewski, was formerly  lady in waiting upon the deceased  princess Amelia of Schleswig-Hol-  stein, and the defendant is the  brother( of empress Augusta Victoria, duke Ernest Guenther. ��� The  plaintiff claims that princess Amelia  received only 12,000 marks annually from the defendant, who is head  of the house. She also asserts that  as'ahe has a fortune of her own  amounting to^SO^OOO^marks sfuf  made loans to the princess, who being in the last stages of consumption  was at the time proceeding slowly  to Egypt. While the princess was  in Malta, according to the plaintiff's  statement, she engaged as her  chamberlain an American named  Walker, who induced her to incur  large expenses. Finally the plaintiff, who feared the loss of her entire fortune, made the princess,  with whom she had arrived in  Cairo, restore to her the sum of 20,-  000 francs.  The plaintiff now declares that  at the instigation of duke Ernest  Guenther, the adjutant of prince  Joachim of Prussia caused tho  Egyptian police to arrest her in the  street, after which she was forcibly  and inhumanly transported back to  Prussia, when she became very ill.  Meanwhile, according to the plaintiff's declaration, Mr. Walker forcibly took plaintiff's 20,000 francs  from her trunk, and with it settled  the unpaid bills of the princess,  then deceased, and defrayed , the  cost of transportation of the body  home. Plaintiff asks that the 20,-  000 francs be refunded with interest.  Defendant's counsel, count Bre-  dow, challenged the accuracy of a  number of plaintiff's statements,  and the court decided that before  the proceedings were carried further, prince Joachim's adjutant,  who is still in Cairo,  must  depose.

German Expedition   to   New   Guinea  Falls Into the Clutches of the  Man-Eaters.  Berlin, Juue 0.���The Tageblatt  prints special correspondence from  New Guinea containing a full account of the massacre of the members of the first German south sea  expedition on the cannibal island of  St. Mathies. They were all killed  aud eaten save Dr. Heiuroth.  The Colonial Zeitung, official organ of the German Colonial Society,  furnishes details of the massacre.  It seems that the vessel which carried the expedition to the island of  St. Mathies left after a few .days  for Herbertsho, New Britain, to get  supplies. During its absence the  savages, who had hitherto appeared  friendly, although known to be  rabid cannibals, planned to kill and  rob the party. The plot was carried out oue morning while the  members of the expedition, who  had a bodyguard of forty drilled  .Papuans, were cleaning their  rifles, which they had taken apart.  Suddenly eighty of the islanders  broke from the bushes. Raising  fierce war cries and brandishing  spears they stabbed to death the  leader of the party, Dr. Mencken,  (heretofore cabled as Mercke or  Menke), his secretary, Herr Caro,  and a Avhite sailor, who was asleep  under a tent. Dr. Heinroth emptied  his revolver into them, while the  bodyguard fled to the boats with  the wounded and Dr. Heinroth,  leaving 12 dead. The boats put off  to- an island not far distant, where  the expeditionary vessel rescued  them.. Subsequently the survivors  returned to the island of St.  Mathies, where they found that the  bodies had been devoured and the  camp looted.  Hanna Loosens Up.  Cleveland, June 0.���When Mrs.  Booth-Tucker    of    the    Salvation  Army reached Cleveland yesterday  morning she was fully imbued with  a determination to raise the $25,000  required to make effective the gift  of a tract of land for the farm colony that is  to  be  established  at  Mentor, Lake   county.    This land  was   given * by   colonel  Myron T.  Herrick and James Parmelee,  with  the understanding  that  the  army  people raise au amount equal to the  value of the land���$25,000. The first  thing Mrs. Booth-Tucker did on her  arrival here was to call at the office  of senator Hanna, and she had no  difficulty-^in^inducingHiim^to^put  down his name for $1000.    The Salr  vation Array is one of the senator's  pet charities, and he believes  that  it is doing a great  work  for good  citizenship.      He gave  Mrs. Booth-  Tucker the names of a  number of  his business friends, and told her to  say to them that he wanted  them  to   contribute   to    this    excellent  cause.      As a result two other subscriptions have  been secured from  Samuel Mather and Henry A. Everett,  each  for   $500.      Mrs. Booth-  Tucker has a number  of  names on  her list,  and  some  of  them  have  promised   to   give  her something,  but  she  is  not   yet  ready to an-  11011110"* who they are or the amounts  they will subscribe.     Mayor Johnson has as yet contributed nothing.  Morgan Wants to Get In.  London, June 0,.���Robert W.  Perks, M.

London, June 0.���On a motion to  approve the agreement of the government with the Eastern Extension Telegraph Company for laying  a cable from Che Foo to Wei Hai  Wei,sir Charles Dilke asked whether  the agreement would not pledge  the government to resist any attempt by the United States to establish direct communication with  China. Austin Chamberlain explained that it was imperative that  the cable should be- laid, and finding China had' already pledged herself to give no landing rights to any  companies except the Russo-Danisli  and the Eastern Extension, the government had been compelled to  make the best terms it could.

The Canadian Pacific Railway  Company does a business of over a  ��� million a year at Nelson and Rossland, two towns that have a population of less than 15,009 all told.  Yet, there are people who say that  there is nothing in mining.  New Westminster is a sort of  breeding ground for -judges. Ex-  judge McCreight lived their. Chief  justice McColl lives there, as does  county judge Bole. County judge  .' Forin was appointed to Kootenay  from there, and now Alec Heudei'son  of that place is appointed to a  county judgeship. Is it the fish  diet that does it?  ^ A resident of Idaho, who is now  in British Columbia engaged at  mining, in speaking of the'mining  laws of ��� the two countries, says:  " The laws are much the same; but  ** in the-United States the mining  " law today is what it was in 1S72.  " The law has not been changed iu  " thirty years. The people, thei'e-  ," fore, know, what the law is."  There is much in this contention,  and it is safe to say there will be  few changes in the law in this  province from this time on.

Glass, brass, wood, iron and stone  are all expected to present the same  immaculate exterior as his own irreproachable shirt bosom. Even  the prisoners are groomed like  thoroughbreds, and one of thera has  expressed the opinion that the condemned murderer will be quite reconciled to his fate' after two  months of such excessive tidiness.  There is some talk of a scrubbing  brush factory being- started in the  city to supply the brisk demand  made under these conditions.  1 of the lower Fraser are not as enterprising as they might be; that  they must adopt new methods of  farming in order to be able to hold  the markets of the province. Old-  time methods will have to be discarded in farming as they have  been in mining.  II, Hirschkl-Cohkn of Victoria,  in a letter to the Victoria Colonist,  says that the mining laws of British Columbia are "disgraceful."  Mr. Hirschel-Cohen may be making  a statement of fact, but it is strange  that-he was not so brutally frank  when he was engineering his Cas-  siar Central Railway scheme  through the legislature, in 1898.  Were the mining laws of the province all right at that time because  Mr. Hirschel-Cohen had no difficulty in securing a concession to do  as he pleased in the northern part  of the province ? He tried to. get  the concession extended at the last  session of the legislature, but  failed.          A Model Jail and Jailer.  New Denver Ledge.  It is said that the new warden of  the jail at Nelson is such a terror to  evil doers that his influence is doing more to diminish crime in the  Kootenays than any agency that  has hitherto been introduced. Jail  . life is no longer popular. If it be  true that cleanliness is next to god-  Jiness, st man might as well be in  church. The warden is, as everybody knows, the most exquisitely  neat man in Nelson, and, under his  ���egime,  the   jail  has  been   tiaiiH-  A Tactless Communication.  YojcouAMA, May 18, via San  Francisco, June 6.-~Tliere is much  feeling in official and political circles  occasioned by tlie publication of  consul general Bellow's communication to the American government  concerning the state of Japan's finances. However true the facts  therein,'.the conclusions sure to be  drawn from them by foreign governments and the commercial world  are wholly' unfounded, as the finances of this country are really in.  the soundest possible condition. It  is felt that just at this juncture,  where so much depends upon keeping Russia iu check, it becomes an  actjHi^the  part of the American  Each Power for Itself.  Washington, June 0.���The ambassadors from most "of the 'European countries were in conference  with secretary Hay today, mainly  because   it   was   diplomatic    day,  which afforded an opportunity for  discussing the state of the' Chinese  negotiations. Ifc is understood thafc  themiddleground, or modus vivendi  as it is being referred to, concerning the form of paying the indemnity, is likely to be settled by a  joint and several guaranty. It will  be in complete accord with the  American view, that there should  be no joint guaranty in the sense of  binding each government to securing the payment of the entire $337,-  000,000. It will be joint, however,  in the foiunal aspect of being executed by all the powers at the same  time and probably by the same instrument. This instrument, doubtless, will include a provision by  which each government will assume  no liability beyond the amount of  its own share in the indemnity,  which in the case of the United  States is limited to $25,000,000. "  In answer to his inquiry, special  commissioner Rockhill at Pelcin has  been informed that the United  States 'government, has not taken  any steps recently looking towards  the abatement of its claims for indemnity against China by one half,  regardless of the action of other  powers. Some time ago the government proposed through Mr. Rockhill that all of the powers scale  down their claims 50 per cent, so as  to bring the total of the indemnities  within China's ability [to pay.  Though this proposition "failed of  acceptance, our government left Mr.  Rockhill under insti actions to lose  no opportunity to secure a reduction  of the claims, but it has never  signified a disposition to refuse to  accept the full amount of our indemnity regardless of the action of  the other 'powers.-        ...  v0gp.-^9�� '���aS-tiitt?

Will Not Submit to Germany.  Pjskin, June 6.���The ministers  have ceased tp hold meetings while  making inquiries as to 'the desires  of their respective governments.  The ministers hold that Germany  should have told the Chinese that  all the powers would agree to an  indemnity of 450,000,000 taels at  four per cent interest. They also  think that the withdrawal of count  von Waldersee and the German  troops shows a desire to force the  powers to acquiesce to German demands, which they are not inclined  to do. Trouble between British  and French soldiers at Tien-Tsin  still continues.

Manila, June 0.���The fragmentary news received here of the  Porto-Rican decisions has caused  apprehension that there will be  such a deficit in the Philippine revenues that congress will need to  make an appropriation to meet it.

Honolulu, via San Francisco,  June C.���The foundation for the  reports of bribery in the legislature  has suddenly been revealed by Jacob  Cooper, who wanted a 'railroad  i'raneliise. He is the client whose  name L. A. Thurston refused*to reveal to the grand jury. Thurston  was under sentence for contempt  for so refusing, but the statement  of his client released him. Thurston was not confined, as the supreme court had issued a writ'of  habeas corpus and had not decided  the case. Cooper swears that he  was asked by three different members of the house to pay money for  their efforts in behalf of his bill to  secure a franchise for, his railroad.  He has been before the grand jury  and it is stated has told the jury  the names of the three representatives who solicited bribes. The report of the grand jury is awaited  with much interest.
