Contends That' Conditions on English  Railroads  Render It  Impossible  to Use High Class Engines.  Nkw York, June 12���-" They have  no real American locomotives  abroad, strictly speaking, and the  critics of these engines do not know  what they are," so said A. M. Waitt,  superintendent of motive power  and rolling stock for the New York  Central railway, system. He was  speaking of the cabled reports of  the unfavorable criticisms of these  engines by foreign railroad officials,  with winch they have lately been  experimenting. "The locomotives  they refer to," Mr. Waitt continued,  "are American in make true enough,  but they are English and foreign in  dimensions, caliber and power.  Owing to the restrictions made  necessary by narrow and lower  tunnels and other essential differences, which characterize English  i-oads as compared with ours, it is  simply impossible for them to  utilize such a machine a<* wo now  regard as a truly American locomotive. The result is-thafc they  get a sort of hybrid affair built by  American skill, but on foreign lines,  and to meet foreign requirements  and then if ifc does iiofc prove to be  all they had hoped for they proceed  to criticize the American locomotives."  Mr. AVaitt went on to say that in  England  tho  practice is   to  nurse  locomotives   aud   let   them   grow,  while in this country the practice is  to run them hard and  run them to  , their   full  capacity.      Angus   Sin-  .clair, editor of Railway and Loco-  , motive    Engineering,    years . ago  -drove   locomotives   on    the   Caledonian  road  in  Scotland, being  a  Scotchman   by   birth.      He   visits  Europe yearly and he has  studied  .the subject of locomotives "in evory  country except Spain.    AVhen  the  subject   of   American   locomotives  .was bi ought up he said two-thirds  of it afc least was simply  prejudice.  It  is  hard. to. get; a  British  or a  European engine driver to  make a  favorable report of a Yankee invention  of   any   kind,  but  they  will  come to it in  spite of  their  prejudices.      The  American  locomotive  will win its  way in  Great Britain  and Europe, that's certain.  Western Federation Officers.

London, June 12.���London seldom had a finer spectacle than was  witnessed in the Horse Guards parade this morning, when king Edward presented medals to 3000 soldier participants in the South African campaign. The great square  was lined with guards drawn from  the various regiments. In the center of the ground was a purple covered dais surmounted by an Indian  "tent with silver corner poles. In  the space between the dais and St.  James park were drawn up 3000  oflicers and men of the Guards,  Household Cavalry and City Imperial Volunteers, all of whom had  served in the campaign. The admiralty. Horse Guards and other  official buildings fronting the par-  ado were all decorated with flags.  Tho lord mayor, Frank Green,  attended in state, and tho members  of the special Moorish embassy, in  picturesque costumes, were interested spectators.

New York, June  12.���The head  ;of a local yacht agency made the  statement     this t afternoon    thafc  negotiations for   the   sale   of the  Boston 90-footer Independence had  beeen enternd into with Thomas  W.   Lawson,   the   owner   of   that  troublesome craft, and that in all  probability   the   yacht   would   be  purchased by   several   New York  business men, who honestly believe  in   her     ability   to    defeat    the  champion  Columbia   and  the new  claimant for America's cup honors,  the  Constitution,  in fche  trials to  pick a boafc to  defend  thafc trophy  against Shamrock  II..  This  yacht  agent   says  that the negotiations  ,were opaned afc the suggestion of  Mr. Lawson. , Recognizing that the  boat would nofc have a full chance  to show her powers  under his flag  and believing, that she is invincible,  he   decided   r.o   seJl   her   iu   open  market to satisfy tlie public that  she is fche superior boat and that he  is unselfish enough  not to stand in  the way of success.  A Mail and Express reporter who  carried the rumor to the New York  Yacht Club was told by officials of  the organization that the news did  not come as a surprise, inasmuch as  ifc is known thafc several of Mr. Law-  son's most intimate friends here,  since the -publication of, the last  correspondence with the New York  Yacht Club, strongly advised him  te sell the boat outright that her  performances might be made an  object lesson to whomever- it concerned. -'-*���---���   ~"    ""       -..--.  Boston, Juno 12.���The first of the  series of sail trials of the Lawson  yacht Independence was finished  today and the big ninety-footer  will not go out again until some  changes have been made to correct  a few slight defects discovered during the five days of sailing. These  changes will be a shortening of the  mast and a reduction of the sail,  which are due to tenderness shown  by the boat while on the wind, and  the substitution of a stern post  rudder foi- the. balance affair, which  has not proved satisfactory. The  Independence sailed today for the  first time under racing canvas,  mainsail, foresail, jib, jib topsail  and club topsail and in the light  breeze seemed to slip along very  fast. The trial was more to test  =the_big=club-topsail=and=the-earry-  ing power of tho topmast as the  latter stick has once or twice buckled slightly during a good breeze.  Strikers Are Ugly.  Roc H ust ic it, June 12.���Rioting of  fche striking street and building  laborers and their sympathizers was  resumed this morning. A thousand  men in an ugly mood rushod on to  Portland avenue, where a pavement  is being laid by contractor H. N.  Cowles, and with sticks and stones  drove away tho men employed. It  was with difficulty that a bicycle  squad of fifteen policemen and an  equal number brought by a patrol  wagon drove olf the strikers, who  proceeded to other jobs followed  by a big police detail. Later in the  day the mob visited the City Hall  and the lead ors-.waited on mayor  Caraharn, who expressed his sympathy and promised to use his best  endeavors with the contractors to  terminate the strike.

WASHINGTON, June 12.���The press  report, from Pekin that the recent lire  In the Forbidden City followed the performance of a decree directing the destruction of archives is attracting much  attention among the officials hero, who  feel that any such course may prejudice the early solution of the trouble at  the Chinese capital, TIihb far, however,  neither the state department nor tho  Chinese Ic^itlon has received such  decree. Tho information reaching Chinese quarters indicates that the report  grows out of a misapprehension of Chinese affairs. It appears that some of  the boards in China have a largo number of written documents wliich are  important for local administration in  a country governed entirely by tradition. But these documents are often  prepared by an ignorant class of subordinates and much of the trouble which  lias come upon the country of late is  attributed to the misguiding dictum of  such subordinates.  In the interest therefore of intelligent administration it has been urged  that the misleading documents be obliterated, so that tho traditions might  be maintained by the more accurate  and authentic records of those in authority. This has resulted in a sort of  weeding out of what was considered  bad and unreliable and the permanent  establishment of. what was, reliable. Instead of being a move towards vandal-  Ism, it Is said to be in the interest of  a reform In administration Whethar  tlie recent occurrence resulted from this  movement is not dellnltely known here,  although those familiar with the situation regard the incident as in line  with the efforts which the Chinese  authorities are making to overcome the  causes leading up to the recent troubles.  *..?:  Buffalo, June 12.���The sensa-'  tional case of Max Lasar, the diamond smuggler, was officially ���  closed today, when commissioner'.

Kn-|,,June 12.���Emperor Will faro,  accompanied by the headquarter- ,  staff, prince Henry of Prussia, and  the chiefs of his majesty's private  cabinet, arrived here this morning  to witness the launching of the  battleship Zaehringen at the Ger-  mania yards. The emperor boarded  the imperial yacht Hohenzollern  amid salutes from the war vessel-  present. Owing to the unfavorable  weather the launch was postponed  until the afternoon. While the  work of removing the shores, preparatory to the launching was in  progress, a crane collapsed, killing  two men and seriously injuring  three others.  Canada's Cup Defender.

Of this amount  $130,000   is   estimated  as  receipts  from free miners' certificates, $200,-  000 from  general  mining  receipts,  and  $80,000  from mineral tax; or  $110,000 in all���22 per cent of  th'e  total revenue paid by the people of  the province.    The mining districts  of the  province  are Cassiar, Cariboo, East Kootenay, West Kootonay,  and portions of  Yale,   West  Lillooet,   Cowichan.   and   Alberni.  ,  These districts will  receive  during  the yea'r in the way of appropriations for roads, trails and bridges a  total of $350,000 (counting  GO  per  cent of the appropriations made for  Yale, West Lillooet,'Cowichan, and  Alberni),      or      within      $60,000  of the totxl revenue that can really  . be charged as being derived from  the mining industry.     Will the remaining $00,000 pay the salaries of  the mining recorders in the various  mining  districts ?   Then  there are  also  the expenses  of maintaining  public schools  and the  administration of justice.    If the people bf the  mining districts  do not pay their  own way, who will pay it ?   If they  do  no  more  than  pay their  \say,  are   they   doing  more  than  their  share ?    There has been altogether  tbo  much   abuse   heaped   ou   the  heads of the government for endeavoring   to   make   the    annual  revenue meet the  annual expenditure.    The mining industry is not  sorely   taxed,  as a few mine managers arc trying to make the country  believe.    The  total tax   from  the  producing metaTlnines tif"tlre~pro-=  vince is estimated at $80,000 for the  year.    If our mines  are  so poor as  to be unable  to pay  so  paltry au  amount without so much growling,  then British  Columbia  had better  not   bo   advertised   as   a    mining  country.

Tho clerks  in the retail stores have organized  a union. No one will deny that  thoy have a right to take such  action. But wheu tho members of  this union tako upon themselves  the right to dictate to merchants  who are opposed to closing thoir  places of business on Thursday  afternoon, then they must stand or  fall on the merits of their demands.  No merchant should a��k a clerk to  work unreasonable hours during a  day; but a clerk has no right to  dictate to a merchant Avhen he  shall open and close his place of  business. A merchant may see fit  to keep his place of business open  sixteen hours a day, and as long as  he does not ask his clerk to work  over nine hours out of the sixteen,  or over a stated number of hours a  week, he is not exceeding his rights  as a business man and citi'/*en. Once  his clerk steps in and says : "You  " must not open your store before a  " certain hour, and must close it at  " a certain hour on certain days of  " the week," then that clerk is going  beyond his rights. Labor organizations that make unreasonable de  mands invariably are worsted, as  they should be. The clerks' union  of Nolsou had better take a few  lessons in the principles of unionism  before they begin, "boycotting"  people who differ with them.  Rossland has.fixed its tax rate  at 20 mills on the dollar.' Twenty  mills is 2 per cent on the assessed  valuation" qf property. Nelson's  tax rate has not been in excess of  10 mills so fai', and it should not be  more than 12 mills this year. While  comparisons prove little, it must be  admitted that Nelson has as much  to show for the money spent as has  Rossland. Both towns are the  samo age���4 years and 2 months  old.    Evidently that one hundred  thousand dollars is to be spent to  bring about tho repeal of the eight-  hour and other obnoxious mining  laws. Part of the hundred thousand has already gone towards the  purchase of newspapers, and the  "Mark Ilauna of British-Columbia"  is now drafting a plan of campaign  _on_which_to  squander the romain-  der.  THE CONDITIONS IN SAMOA  Natives Allowed Much Liberty.  SjVN Francisco, June  12.���Commander  IJ. F.  Tilley,  governor  of  tho   United   States  possession!)  in  Samoa, who is hero on leave of absence, discussing the conditions in  Samoa,   said:      "The   natives   aro  docile   and   contented.    Wo   have  permitted them to follow their own  customs   when  they are not pernicious.    It was necessary to reform  their  customs regulating marriage  and   divorce.     Tiie uniqueness of  the conditions and  the  remoteness  from high authority compelled  me  to act the part  of a supreme law  giver as well as that of an executive  officer.     1   issued   ordinances   forbidding the transfer of  real property to whites by natives,  and  regulating contracts between natives  and whites.    The ordinances   were  necessary for the protection of the  natives aud the general laws of the  United States do not  iill tho  conditions in.the islands.     The possessions are divided into counties, each  governed  by  a   native  officer appointed   by   the   American   commander.     This system has pleased  the Samoans.    Recently the chiefs  at Fagatoga offered the water front  to the government at a reasonable  price ' and   announced   that   they  would build a Presbyterian  church  with the money.    The Loudon mission works among  them.    All  the  natives    are    Christians    and   extremely religious.  Peace   was   what   the islanders  needed.    They   had been warring  perpetually and the warfare inter-  ferred with production. The soil  voluntarily yields bread fruit, cocoa  nuts and everything the. Samoans  require to eat, and there is really  no reason why they should work.  It is not surprising, therefore, that  they are inclined to'idleness. The  population of Americans in Samoa  is about. 110 all told. I do not think  the commerce of the islands over  will amount to a great deal. The  chief value bf the islands to this  country is the great harbor, which,  is protected against hurricanes ������ml  can easily be made secure against  au enemy. Congress has passed an  appropriation to enable us to enlarge the coal storage capacity oE  the harbor to ten thousand tons,  enough to coal a licet. The harbor  is 2000 miles from Honolulu, 1400  miles from Auckland' and about  2000 from Sydney. German Samoa  is doing well under governor Soil', a,  broad-minded man. Lieutenant-  commander .Doren is now. in command at Samoa.  Y. M. C, A. Convention.  Boston, June 12.���Tho work of  the'-international jubilee convention  of the Y. M. C. A., .which began  yesterday, was resumed today. The  presentation of Y. M. C. A. problems  and of subjects bearing on the progress of tho work of fifty years was  the main feature of today's'" pro-'  gram. The first address of the day  was by judge Selden-P..Spencer of  St. Louis, who spoke on the subject,  "The Lessons of Fifty Years' Y. M7  C. A. Work." He pointed out the  fact that wherever men are and  can be reached as a class, there is  the place for association ��� work.  Judge Spencer was followed by  Herbert B. Ames of Montrealrwhose  subject was, "The Contribution of  the" Young Men's Christian Association Towards the Solution of the  City Problem."  Brickmalfcrs of Reading, Pa., to tl>:  mimber of 3f>0, have boen granted an increase of 25 cents per day in wage*.  The raise in the wage scale resulted  fiom a strike, which was spttled ty a  compromise.  22_>-J__  ��_��  00  .<t*_S*>^3^  ��� 00- 00  .   *"-��*. ����rtN . *��**.. -H.TS . *������.. '"IM. .

Sunday Observance  aldermen, and the West Kootenay  Power & Light Company', and is  willing to tackle as many more  cantankerous organizations and individuals, separately or collectively,  as it can find space to handle, with  or without gloves.  TOOK  BOND  FOR $12,  On'Slocan Property.  A. M. Johnson lias returned from  Slocan City, where, acting for R. E.  Fishburn of this city, he secured  the International and Happy  Medium claims upon a $12,000 bond  in payments extending over one  year. The properties' were held by  W. J. Hinchcliff and Fred T. Benson and are situate about a mile  north of the-mouth of Twelve-mile  creek. Tiie properties represent a  recent discoVery, being located on  May 17th. Although very little  work has been done as yet, the  indications are that the claims have  a wide ledge of dry ore, from whicli  some remarkably high assays have  been secured. A contract has been  let by Mr. Fishburn  for  running a  tunnel of 100 feet and work upon a  trail and cabin is now under way.  Will Have a Resident Agent.  Tlie Canadian Pacific Railway  Company has decided to locate an  agent in this city for the handling  of the company's lands in the  Kootenays and Boundary. Heretofore the company's outside lands,  embraced in the different land  grants, have been handled from  Winnipeg, but this system has not  proved satisfactory. The old Columbia and Kootenay building on  Baker Street, which was built and  first occupied by cmayor ���.Fletcher  as land commissioner for the company, is being renovated for the  new agent. When he is installed it  is said the company will withdraw  all its land agents in East Kootenay  aud Boundary points aud conduct  the whole business from.this city.  The new arrangement will not affect  the handling of the company's  Nolson property which will continue to receive, the attention of  mayor Fletcher, but it is altogether  likely that within a short time the  company will establish a fully  equipped land office in the city with  a land commissioner in charge  having greater powers than are  possessed by the company's land  agents.
