NELSON, B.C., TUESDAY MORNING, JUNE 11, 1901  PRICE FIVE CENTS  SCHOOL   VOTE    INDORSED  COUNCIL   WILL   GO  THE WHOLE  FIVE THOUSAND.  Hugh Nixon Gets a Vote of $100, and  Young   Receives   a   Bonus  for  Conspicuous Bravery.  Tlie consideration of the finance  committee's report broughtoutsome  discussion on civic finances at last  evening's meeting of the city  council, when it was decided that,  in view of the heavy expenditures  of tlio first few months, it would be  necessary to go slow in tho matter  of ordering new work until after  tlie July receipts come in.  Alderman Hamilton in presenting  tho case for tho finance committee  said tlio council had already overrun its revenue by some $SO0O,  which was the estimate up  to July 1st. July, however,  was a big month for collections  and from $8000 to $9000 should be  received during that month, ln  speaking of the excess of expenditures over the estimate alderman  Hamilton said excesses had been  encountered in the public health  department and also in the interest  account, but he was pleased to say  that tho revenue received from the  city's electric light and water service had in both instances exceeded  the estimates. Tlio arrears from  these services were also being collected as well, but the members of  tlie finance committee thought the  council had better go slow in ordering new work.  Alderman Gillett asked what was  proposed to be done in the matter  of .sewer construction.  Alderman Selous explained that  there yet remained- $3200 to be expended'upon sewers.'    '  Alderman Hamilton added as one  reason why caution should be exercised that as yet the ciby debentures remained unsold.  Mayor Fletcher in reply said he  had called for fresh tenders for the  debentures aud the council would  know by the 15th instant what the  result had been. *  Alderman Selous explained that  there was no intention to depart  from tlie original estimates of expenditure, and provision was made  by the committee for the expenditure of something over $11,000 yet.  This included $5000 for waterworks, $3200 for sewers and $1400  for light, among other items.   -  The recommendation of thn committee to go slow was adopted.  The finance committee also  ^recommeudedJ-he^payment of cur-  ��� rent accounts amounting to  .$1109.14, and that the sum of $5000  be raised for city school purposes  to supplement the grant of $5000  from the provincial government.  There was some discussion over  tlio school expenditure. Alderman  Hamilton in support of it said tliat  unless somo such vote was made  the trustees would be forced to  spend tha government vote of $5000  in patching tlie present old school  building, which would mean a much  larger demand upon the city when  tlie corporation took hold of the  schools at the beginning of the year.  If, however, the city made a vote  of $5000 it would be possible for  the trustees to put up a new brick  or stone building which would furnish all requisite school accommodation for the next two or three  years.  Mayor Fletcher asked alderman  Hamilton if he had looked  into the matter to see how far the  council was empowered to make  such a grant uuder present conditions. Some discussion occurred  upon this point aud it was eventually decided to secure the opinion  of the city solicitor as to whether  the city could issue debentures to  cover the vote by au increased tax  levy. ���.->".  Alderman Selou3 said he had  fiixed the situation up and in his  opinion the council would escape a  demand for $10,000 next year by  making a vote of $5000 this ye ar.  Tlie recommendation was adopted  and the city solicitor will be required to find a way for carrying  it out.  The report of the public works  committee contained the following  recommendations: (I) That Ward  street, from  Vernon to  Front,  be  graded and ditched; (2) that the  Nelson Gas & Coke Company be required to place all their exposed  gas mains in the city underground;  (3) that the Nelson Tramway Company be requested to repair that  portion of their track lying between Josephine and Hall streets  on Front street; (4) that a crossing  be laid on the. east side of Kootenay  street across Robson street; (5)  that the sum of $100 be spent in  improving Vernon street between  Hall and Cedar streets; (0) that a  four-plank sidewalk be laid on the  north side of Hoover street, between Stanley and AVard streets.  The report provoked some discussion, but was eventually adopted as  read.  A communication was read from  Messrs. Macdonald & Johnson asking the council to indemnify' Dr.  LaBau against any damages in the  suit which doctors Hall & Rose  have brought against him in connection with the fumigation ot  their offices, and also to defray his  costs in the suit.  Mayor Fletcher, aldermen Selous,  Paterson aud Madden spoke strongly upon the necessity for backing  up the health officer. Alderman  Gillett was opposed to any such  course and aldermen Irving and  Hamilton agreed with him in part.  Alderman Selous. eventually  moved that the terms of the communication of Messrs. Macdonald &  Johnson be complied with. This  was seconded by Alderman Madden  and carried, Alderman Gillett alone  dissenting.  The mayor was also empowered  to look after the city's interests in  tlie case.  Alderman Paterson brought up  the question of the remuneration  of Hugh Nixon for his loss of $95  and his watch while in the discharge  of his duty at tlie electric light  dam and also of the recognition of  the bravery of William Young in  saving Nixon's life.  Alderman Selous recorded himself  as in favor of recognizing conspicuous bravery as well as good  service in civic employees.  Mayor Fletcher also spoke very  highly of the bravery of Mr. Nixon's  rescuer, after whieh alderman*'  Selous moved that Hugh Nixon be  voted $100 as compensation for his  losses, and that Mr. Young receive  a bonus of $50 and that the city  press his claim for the Humane  Society's medal. This was agreed to.  THE RECATTA PROCBAMME  Drafted Last Evening.

Vancouver, June 10.���[Special  to The Tribune.]���At a joint meeting this afternoon of the canners'  and fishermen's committee, the  fishermen reported the decision of  the grand lodge that from their  point of view 15 cents per fish must  be paid for the season. The canners' offer had been 12 cents for  July and 10 cents for August. After  a long discussion the canners agreed  to give 12 cents up to the end of  the first week in August, but said  that 15 for the whole season was  simply out of the question. The  canners themselves do not have any  hope that the fishermen will accept  their offer and the general opiuion  is that another strike and perhaps  serious trouble may ensue.  AYLMER, Que., 10.���A young  boy, twelve years old, named Dene-  ault, was almost cut in two at  Richie Bro.'s sawmill Saturday and  died yesterday morning. Deceased  was playing with companions when  the accident occurred.  UNCO GOOD STILL KICKING  SUNDAY BALL JARS ON THEIR  NERVES.  Invoke   the Aid of the Police Commissioners to   Carry   Out   a  Foolish Resolution.  The narrow gauge aldermen were  out in force at last evening's meeting of the city council and proceeded to raise a row over that Sunday  game of ball in the recreation  grounds. The subject was introduced at the end of the other  business of the meeting, by alderman. Hamilton, who said lie had  two questions to ask, which he proceeded to read from two slips of  yellow paper. The first was au  inquiry as to what steps were taken  to carry into effect the resolution  carried by the majority of the  council with respect to the playing  of baseball in the recreation grounds  on Sunday. The second was an  inquiry whether the resolution in  question was to bf) set aside by the  ball players . of Nelson and of Rossland.  Mayor Fletcher undertook the  reply. He reminded alderman  Hamilton that the resolution referred to was not addressed to any  one. The police of the city were  employed in carrying out the laws  of the land, and the bylaws of the  city, but they had nothing to do  with such resolutions. There was  a statutory law on Sunday observance, and if any one felt aggrieved  at Sunday ball playing he could  lodge a complaint, and then it  could be determined what the law  was upon the question. If the  f miners of the resolution had taken  sufficient care to have addressed it  to the police commissioners it might  have, had some force or effect, but  as it stood'it'amounted to nothing  more than an expression of opinion  on the part of certain members of  the council. If it was desired to  restrict people from doing certain  things the restriction should be  properly framed.  Alderman Gillett���We can tear  down the fence around the recreation grounds.  Mayor Fletcher���Yes, you can  tear down the fence.  Alderman Paterson expressed  the opinion that a slight had been  put upon the council by ignoring  its resolution.  Mayor Fletcher said the members  who had drafted the resolution had  put the slight upon the council.  The resolution had been sprung  upon the council aud was not put  in proper shape.   _. ,'  = Alderman __Madden_moved_that_  the council adjourn.  Alderman Paterson then started  in to refer to something which he  had seen in the Rossland Miner,  but the mayor called him to order  and informed the council that a  member could speak but once to  any question.  This brought matters to a head  and alderman Hamilton moved,  seconded by alderman Paterson,  that the police commissioners be  requested to have the resolutions,  carried by the council, with regard  to tha playing of games within the  city limits put into effect.  This was carried, and thus the  matter is effectually disposed of.  The police commission is an independent body. It meets when it  pleases, and there is no assurance  that it will meet again during the  summer season. Indeed certain  members of the commission feel  that in view of the heat occasioned  by the last meeting they would be  showing indifference to the comfort  of the great majority of the citizens  if during the present warm weather  they brought on another session  and unduly raised the temperature  of the eity.

Fairview, June 6.���[Special to  the Tribune],���Nelson holders of  stock in the Fairview Corporation,  Limited, will regret to hear that  Messrs. Gooderhamf& Blackstock of  Toronto have thrown up their  option of a controlling interest in  the stock of the corporation, notwithstanding that the Stemwinder  has shown a marked improvement  in both values and ore at the 300-  foot level. The west drift' on this  level has been in 00 feet of ore,,  with neither wall in sight. It is  entering a point immediately under  the big showing." on the 200-foot  level, where the vein measured 21  feet between walls. The values on  the 300-level are [increasing somewhat, ten samplings giving an average of $7.94 per ton.  Manager Russell has , gone to  ���Vernon to consult with the directors and. tlie solicitor of the corporation, with a view to levying' a  - three-cent assessment on ..the advice  of heavy Montreal .-holders; ' The  satisfactory showing iu the mine  warrants some effort being made  to carry forward further development, as it .. is apparent  that the drift is entering a big  shoot of ore that may surprise the  public. The Stemwinder is a big  low-grade milling proposition, and  much money has already been spent  in the preliminary stage of development. Mill tests of the ore from  tho first level, at a depth of 100  feet, gave $0.25. The last mill run  of 500 tons, foreman Campbell says,  went over $5 per ton. This last ore  came from -both the first and  second levels. Beside its mineral  holdings the corporation has 400  acres of the best coal land at White  lake, 10 miles north of Fairview.  This deposit has been slightly pros-  =pectedfn.nd-^he"coaHs-Teported=4}y-  local blacksmiths to be a good coking coal. An effort is also to be  made to develop this land, as a  market for its product would not  be hard to find in the numerous  towns and mining camps springing  up in the surrounding'district.  Sandy McAuley, who recently  dissolved partnership with .Harry  Rose in the Cariboo Hotel at Camp  McKenny, has been appointed manager of the Hotel Fairview. The  Big Tepee, as the famous hostelry  is called by its patrons, is benefiting by the increased travel to and  from the Similkameen. It is ono of  the largest and best furnished hotels  in southern British Columbia, costing at the time its doors were opened to the public in the boom days  fully $30,000.  Death's Doings.  Si-okank, June 10.���[Special to  the Tribune].���Miss Millie Huntley  of Vernon, B. C, died here early  this morning of consumption.

The Woman That Was to Feign Death  Played Her Part Only too Well  and Crossed Over the River.  Chicago, June 10.���Dr. August  H. Unger and F. Wayland Brown,  on trial for conspiracy to defraud  insurance companies through the  death of Miss Marie Defenbach,  were this evening found guilty and  sentenced to the penitentiary under  the indeterminate act. Frank H.  Smiley, indicted with Unger and  Brown, pleaded guilty and turned  state's evidence. It is likely that  he will escape with a light sentence.  The evidence in the case showed  that Unger, Brown, Smiley and  Miss Defenbach entered into a conspiracy by which Smiley was to appear as the affianced husband of the  woman. She was then to be ill and"  apparently die, leaving the insurance, whieh included one policy in"  a stock company and two in fraternal organizations, the total aggregating $25,000.  Tlie woman in her will said that  she desired her remains to be  cremated and it is thought that it  was the intention to hurry her  away after her supposed death and  cremate another body procured  from the hospital. The woman became ill according to program, but  did not rally and died." Her body  was at once cremated. An inquest  was held by assistant coroner John  B. Wickler without a jury and  Wickler returned to, the coroner's  .office a verdict that the woman had  died from natural causes.  The death of the woman is  shrouded in mystery and physicians  on the stand differed widely as to  the cause of death. The state, however, declared that the woman was  murdered, although it could not be  positively * proven.* It "was shown  that all the insurance carried by  the woman was assigned before her  death and that her will drawn up  after these assignments had been  made.  HOBO VISITS THE ORIENT  Has an Eventful Trip.  New York, June 10. ��� Harry  Kemp, the 18 year-old-son of a  prominent resident of Arlington,  N. J., who left here some 18 months  ago, has returned to his parents.  In March, 1900, he embarked on  the ship Postazolli, bound for  South American ports, as a cabin  boy. The ship went from South  America to Sydney, Australia,  =wh erejf=tu*ed=--by���the=4on g=voyage,-=  Harry deserted. He learned of the  Boxer outbreak in China and immediately became a stowaway in  the Maroi King, bound for Taku  with a cargo of cattle. At Taku  the Maroi King was halted by the  blockade of the powers and compelled to unload its cargo into lighters. Determined to reach China at  any cost the boy with great difficulty boarded one of the lighters  and again hid, this time without  discovery. He reached Tien Tsin  and Pekin in time to witness the  looting of those cities. After existing without food at Pekin for three  days tho youthful globe trotter  went to an American officer and  made known his condition. He was  furnished with food and passage  home. Tiring of this he returned  to Tien Tsin. He saw a company of  marines marching to the American  battleship Indiana, which had beeu  ordered to Manila, and followed  them aud hid away in the hold.  Being found by one of the oflicers  he was set at work painting. On  one occasion he was fired upou from  ambush and barely" escaped with  his life. Availing himself of a good  chance Kemp got on a United States  transport and was soon landed at  Nagasaki, Japan. He there obtained a position as a waiter in a hotel  and after an accident he was discharged. He then became a stowaway on a United States transport  that later landed him in San Francisco. Kemp walked to Los Angeles  and "jumped" freight trains. to  come east.  the reorganized Nippon Yusen  Kaisha line, which has been  doubled, aud now gives two instead  of one monthly service. She  brought news that a Chinese passenger boat bound from Chusan to  Nigpoo was lost during a squall on  May 8th, and out of 08 on board  only nine were saved. Thirty  bodies were washed ashore.  George M. Schilling, who left  New York in 1897 to walk around  the world, has reached Kobe from  India, he being unable to go  through China owing to the unsettled condition.  Chinese comment favorably on  American troops in articles on their  withdrawal from China.  SEQUEL TO RUNAWAY MATCH  HUSBAND AND WIFE ARE FOUND  DEAD IN CHICAGO HOTEL.  Oriental Doings.

Nkw York, June 10.���At the  meeting of the Central Federated  Union the privilege of the floor was  given to a committee from the International Association of Machinists before the body. A. K'unzel-  man of this committee said that the  principal point now was to keep  20,000 non-uuiou men who had gone  .onstrikeTwith the, unioumenl from  rushing back to work. "There are  50,000 machinists on strike for a  shorter work day throughout the  United States," he continued. "Of  these 30,000 belong to the union  and we have to keep the other 20,-  000 in line. Should we win, as I hope  and believe, it means a nine-hour  work day for 050,000 people  throughout the United States, as it  will bring the shorter day to all affected trades." He said that the  fight would bo a long and continued one and asked the central body  to lend its aid financially aud otherwise. It would require $150,000 a  week, he said, to"pay strike benefits  for non-union meu.

Tlie  boat is to ply on the Columbia  river north from Revelstoke to the  Big Bend country. After the boat  is built the people of Revelstoke  will have to vote another bonus to  insure the lives of a crew to run  the boat.   , The press of the province complains at the grade of news furn-  " ished by the Associated Press. The  people of the province have a just  - cause for rcomplaint against the  press for. the, grade of news furnished that is not in any way handled  by the Associated Press. Both tlie  press and the Associated Press are  a lllicted with dry rot.  The office of the inspector of  metalliferous mines for all of West  Kootenay (except Goat River min-  iug division) and Southern Yale  has been moved from Rossland to  Nelson. This indicates that Nelson  is looked on by the government as  the best place from whicli to reach  all the mines in the great metal  mining districts of the province.  From January 1st to June 6th  the mines in Boundary district  adjacent to Greenwood, Phoenix,  and Grand Forks shipped 149,218  tons of gold-copper ore to local  smelters. It is safe to estimate the  value of the ore at $1,00^7000, and  it is as safe to say that one-half of  the million was-paid out for wages  to workers in mines and smelters  and on railways.  The best Kodads  are made by the  Eastman Kodak  Co. Tho most reliable Cameras  are those made by  the Rochester Optical Co.

C.  mnch mineral-bearing ground is  held by busted companies and by  individuals who are waiting to see  how work done by their neighbors  pans out. Such claims pay no taxes,  for tax sales are a thing unheard of  in this province. Make the tax $5  an acre per annum, with a ,rebate  of 'JO per cent if the ground'is . continuously worked. If the taxes are  not paid promptly, have immediate  tax sales. Legislation in this direction will not injure mining, for it is  only an industry when the ground  is being worked.  GERMANY WON'T INTERFERE  There are two daily newspapers  in Victoria, three in Vancouver,  and one in New Westminster ; six  in all. Were all six carefully read,  each day during a month, it is  doubtful if one item would be  found in all six that could be classed  as original or bright. Tlie Colonist  is stale; the Times is flat; the News-  Advertiser is prosy ; the World is  rusty ; the Province is frothy; and  the Columbian is dull.  The Laurier government should  make an effort at government  ownership of railways, now that it  has a majority iu parliament that  is not likely to be overcome. A  controlling interest in the stock of  the Canadian Paci6c railway could  be obtained if gone about in the  right way. The ownership of a  controlling interest in that great  railway system would mean to Canada what the ownership of a controlling interest in the Suez canal  is to Great Britain. Government  control of ownership and private  control of operation should be a  success. ' . ���    A heavier rate of taxation on  unworked crown-granted mineral  claims will be a live question at the  next session of the legislature.   Too I  Kruger Must Seek Other Aid.  Berlin,, June   10.���The    Kleins  Journal today   prints   a   dispatch  from The Hague saying that queen  Wilhelmina's recent visit here was  meant to obtain emperor William's  consent to end the South African  war,.both the zwilluud aud dreibund  beiug willing to do so  through The  Hague arbitration  court, and  that  the   emperor   consented   and   the  court   began work  thereon.     Tlie  dispatch���has-created^d-sonsation-  liere.    Tlie   Associated   Press   lias  just obtained the following foreign  office statement whieh is authorized  by count Von Buelow, the imperial  chancellor:    "Neither Great Britain,  France nor Russia ever approached  Germany   to   participate   in   any  action aiming at ending the South  African   war.      Germany   has   all  along distinguished  between offering her services  and  intervention.  To render her good offices would be  possible   under'    certain     circumstances, viz:    If both parties to the  war should request it;   but it will  be remembered that Great Britain  joined The Hague conference only  on condition  that the Boer states  were excluded.   There is no doubt  that Mr.  Kruger,  who  is a serious  statesman, came toEurope to obtain  the good offices of several  of the  powers to end the war, but thero is  also no  doubt  that  Great  Britain  does not want their good offices. At  least it is too true that since , the  South   African   war   began  Great  Britain has never either verbally or  in writing, confidentially or officially   broached such   an  idea.    It  is  quite  possible  that the  Boer side  has now asked formally The Hague  arbitration court to lend its aid to  end the war   some how and that  ���the court has had a session  regarding the matter, but that  of course  is entirely different from any  serious step to end the war.  A Millionaire With a Heart.  Leadvillb, Col., June 10.���Winfield S. Stratton, the millionaire  mine owner of Cripple Creek, lias  redeemed the Matchless mine in  Leadville for tho widow of the late  senator Tabor.    Years ago senator  Tabor advanced money to Stratton  when Stratton was a poor struggling miner, and he never forgot it.  When Tabor died he had lost almost  everything and he was vainly endeavoring to save the Matchless  mini', which he always iusisted still  contained millions in its unexplored  depths. The property was; sold  several months ago at sheriff's sale  and final title would pass on July  4th to the new owners. Senator  Tabor's widow lias continued the  struggle and Mr. Stratton lias now  come to her assistance and will also  enable her to exploit the property  to greater depths.

The Philippines All Right.  New   York,   June   ' 10.���In    an  article in the coming issue  of Les-  lie'sAVeekly=genei'Al=-Frederick=^D.-  Grant will say that the value of the  Philippines to the United States  cannot be overestimated. "It will  increase," general Grant says,"with  the development of the islands and  the growth of our trade with Asia.  It is the greatest, therefore, from a  commercial standpoint, but is remarkable also as a strategic basis  in time of war. A man with a  small income can build up a competence readily, aud tlie field is full of  opportunities for the industrious  and the thrifty. The soil is capable  of supporting three times the.present number of inhabitants aud of  doing it much better than they are  now supported when there are  better facilities for transportation."  London's Cereal Market,  LondoxV, June 10. ��� The Mark  Lane Express in its weekly crop re-  A'iew today says : Owing to the  deficiency in rain English hay will  inevitably be considerably below  the average and importers Avho are  now complaining of the plethora of  dry food stuffs, such as oats and  maize, will find a good sale for  them long before this time next  year. It may be added that with  foreign Avheat we are not at all  overstocked. The official report  shows the French Avheat crop is  better than anticipated, so that if  the Aveek-end markets are depressed  ifc is only through large, coincident  import requirements in England,  France and Germany. The present  outlook is-that there Avill be a large  deficit both in England aud Germany and a large surplus in the  United States and Russia. Therefore France seems to hold the scale  and confirmation of the present  news is awaited with interest.   The  Capital  Rest  $2,600,000  $1,725,000  to  to  ^\^ &"&"�����'  H. S.

CITY LOCAL NEWS  Licenses to wed were granted  yesterday to Etherton Rice and  Elma Custer, and to Philip John  Clarke and Mary Rodgers.  Provincial Constable Wilson, of  Creston, left for Westminster this  morning with the prisoner Leduir  who has a two years' sentence in  front of him.  The work of laying the steel on  the graded portion of tlio Lardeau  branch is now proceeding, a locomotive from Nelson having been  sent forward for the work.  Two new eases of scarlet fever  were reported to the health authorities yesterday, two children in the  home of W. E. Ellis, insurance  agent, being down with the disease.  The bullion from the Nelson and  Trail smelters is now moving east  at a lively rate. Four cars are  going forward each week from the  Nelson smelter and three cars from  the Trail smelter.  ' W. B. Lanigan, who was formerly  assistant general freight agent for  the C. P. R. at Toronto, has been  appointed to succeed George Shaw  as assistant general freight agent  for the western division, with headquarters at Winnipeg.  This afternoon Charles A. Waterman & Company will offer for sale  by public auction the grading outfit of O'Leary & Boie. The sale  will take place on the old tennis  court on Victoria street, where the  outfit can be inspected, at 3:30  o'clock.  Police magistrate Crease will administer the oath to the .'members  of No. 2 Compauy R. M. R. on  Thursday evening in the armory,  and on Friday the men will be  measured for their new uniforms.  A'full turnout of the men is expected on Thursday.       ,        .  Robert Nelson has secured the  contract to run the tunnel on the  Juno another 250 feet. This tunnel is now in 373 feet, and it is expected to cut the big lead with the  present contract. Nelson will employ six' men on the work, which  will be commenced today.  The local lacrosse boys are not  turning but for practice as well as  might be expected. There is plenty  of good material in Nelson for a  team, but. practice, and lots of it,  will be required if a good showing  is to be made in the games in connection with the Dominion Day  celebration.  George Gale & Son of Quebec  have donated a brass-mounted iron  bed*..with spring mattress, valued  at $30, as a prize in connection with  the Dominion Day celebration, and  the Victor Lock Safe Company of  Cincinnati, through their agent, P.  J. Russell, have donated a jewelry,  safe valued at $10.  *"*��� Although the contractor for tho  new post office and custom house  has beeu daily expected for the  past week nothing has as yet been  heard from him. John Shackleton,  however, is at work taking out the  stone for the basement of the building aud the start on the work cannot be much longer delayed. ,  "^ G. L. Thelin, who is running the  Silver King hotel under lease, has  made some extensive improvements  to  that  well known hostelry,  his  SMITH,  bar and fixtures comparing favor  ably with auy iu the city. For  this work the lumber was shipped  in rough-from the Coast, and fashioned by local hands under Mr.  Thelin's personal supervision.  The traffic receipts of the Canadian Pacific Railway Company do  not furnish any index of hard times  in Nelson. While some complain  that business is quiet iu their respective lines, the records at the  local C. P. R. ofiice show that the  outward freight from Nelson for  the past month was more than  double the outward business for the  month of May, 1900.  Among the recent donations from  manufacturers to the Dominion  Day celebi-ation fund are: Christie,  Brown & Company, Toronto, $10;  Cudahy Packing Company, Omaha,  a Rex ham and Rex bacon; Gutta  Percha Rubber Company, Toronto,  $20; Dominion Tobacco Company,  Montreal, box of Caramel chewing  and box ,of Virginia smoking  tobacco; George E.

' The members of the Nelson Rifle  Association are getting in some  good scores now that they are more  familiar with the new ranges. In  the Sunday shooting Norman T.

LOSS TO THE  CREDITORS  Over Insurance Litigation.  Yesterday was the last day for  tho payment of taxed costs in the  Cordingly suits against the Guardian and Queen fire insurance companies, to recover the loss occasioned in connection with the firo in the  Nelson Furniture Company's premises. Iu the first instance suit  was brought against four of the insurance companies, but the Scottish  Union case was the only one whicli  went to trial. In this case the jury  found for tho insurance company  and the case was dismissed. The  case against tlio Union Insurance  Company was then dismissed with  costs by consent. This left tho two  cases against the Guardian and  Queen companies.  An application for an adjournment in these cases to the next  assize was made and granted upon  terms, the plain till* to pay the defendant's costs of the day and also  the costs thrown away by reason of  the adjournment, within ten days  alter taxation thereof, otherwise  both actions to stand dismissed  without further order. Payment  was not made yesterday so the  cases stand dismissed. The effect  of this is to hit the estate of the  Nelson Furniture Company rather  hard. The loss claimed by the fire  was in the neighborhood of $1000,  but the companies' appraisement  placed it at something like $1500.  Au offer was made by the insurance companies to compromise by  paying $2000, but this was declined  aud suit entered with the result  that the estate comes out at the  small end of the horn, aud with its  paying powers very greatly reduced.  LOCAL SYNDICATE IN LUCK  Have Two Good Offers.  A meeting' of the shareholders of  the Imperial Development Syndicate was held, yesterday afternoon  in the board of trade room for the  purpose of considering the question  of authorizing the directors of the  syndicate to. deal with any portion  of the syndicate assets. Two very  llattering offers have been received  for the Lardeau properties which  the syndicate has been developing,  but the necessity of referring . the  negotiations back from time to time  tothe shareholders stands in the  way of closing out any deal. It  was suggested that the directors be  empowered to handle the assets1 of-  the syndicate, but some legal questions came up and it was decided  to 'adjourn until they could be  determined .satisfactorily. Of the  two offers mentioned at the meeting yesterday, oue called for the  payment of $250,000 in installments, spread over a given period,  and the second for the payment of  $150,000 in installments and  a one-  INSPECTION OF METALLIFEROUS  MINES.

The sneak-thief who entered the  residences of mayor Fletcher and  G. C. Hodge appears to have made a  systematic visitation of the residences in tho western portion of  the city. H. E. Macdonell has now  made up his mind that his residence  was entered. Tlie thief effected his  entrance as usual through''the pantry window, hut was evidently disturbed, as he did not extend his exploration beyond the lower rooms.  Suspicion that the house had been  entered was first excited by the  presence of candle grease on the  furniture, and following ou this  some medals and coins were missed.  Among the former is the McLaren  medal for gymnastics, which Mr.  Macdonell prizes so highly that he  would be willing to pay the thief  more for it than any one else would  offer. .'      .'7    x-   ;."*���- ^  PERSONAL.
