The train  consisted of a buffet oar, two sleepers,  chair car, baggage and express. Physicians were called from Warrane and  Youngstown and left at once for Laevits-  burg, where some of the injured had  been taken. The cause of the wreck is  not known, and the officials are not  able to explain it, unless by a broken  wheel or axle. Some of the most seriously injured were taken to Youngs,  town. The wrecked train is one of the  finest on the Erie road and was ves-  tibuled.         NATIVES WANT ANNEXATION  MIDDLESBORO, Kentucky, February  12.���Six are dead and as many more  dying as "the result of a battle between  Middlesboroughers and mountaineers,  which occurred this afternoon at Lee  Turner's saloon, three and a half miles  from Middlesboro. Last month Turner  had some mules and other goods levied  on, in payment for a debt, and a few  nights ago, it is said, he with other  went to Virginia, where the property  had been taken, secured what was formerly his and returned to his home. Today deputy sheriff W. Thompson summoned a posse of ten or fifteen men for  the purpose of arresting Turner. Railroad transportation was refused the officers and they footed it through the  mountains. Turner had heard that an  attempt would be made to arrest him,  and he and his men, fifteen in number,  were prepared. The saloon is built of  huge logs and is surrounded by a 30-foot  fence, in which loops -were cut.  Turner's surrender was demanded.  His reply was a round of shots. Charley  C. Cecil, of Middlesboro, was riding a  horse in plain view of the Turner gang,  when some one, believed to have been  Mike Welsh, Turner's bartender, fired  through a window, killing Cecil instantly. The murderer fell back pierced  by a half dozen bullets.  The officers then scattered, hiding behind trees and rocks. In the shooting  that followed John Doyle, a former rail-  . road man was badly wounded, perhaps  fataly, and Simon Bean, another ex-  railroader, was shot- A torch was applied to an exposed side of the building,  and in a few minutes the building was  in flames.' Several of the mountaineers  came to the window and were immediately shot .down. Lee Turner, and several of his friends, however, escaped.  Several of his men perished in the  flames;'"Many rumors, are reported tonight, one being that five of the Turner gang were killed and that five more  perished in the flames.  It is also believed that the deputies  lost several men. Some of the deputies  came in tonight and state that half of  the men are still at the saloon, and that  they will return with reinforcements.  Turner, it is said, graduated from a college at Rosehill, Virginia. .  Weaver's Strike Growing  PROVIDENCE, Rhode Island, February 12.���The lock-out on the five mills  of the American Wollen Company, at  Olneyville, due to a strike of 150 weavers against the so-called double loom  system, was superceded today by a general strike of the weavers, numbering  about 2000, out of sympathy with tne  weavers who precipitated the issue with  the company. The lock-out began February 3rd, and was unexpectedly taken  Jxy the company in   anticipation   of   a  ~*gelTe1falH3trik��^  happened today that the weaving department in the Nation, Providence,  Riverside, Manion, and Weybossett  mills were practically idle, when it was  expected they would be running full.  Yesterday the directors of the company  decided to end the lock-out, but in announcing this, action, nothing was said  of any consideration having been given  to the alleged grievance of the double  loom system. The weavers in meeting  last night decided that while other department employes should return to  work, the weavers should not go in.  Fhilipinos' Memorial Presented  WASHINGTON, February 12.���The  memorial of the federal party of the  Philippine islands was transmitted to  the senate this afternoon by the secretary of war, together with a letter of  transmittal by governor Taft, in whose  charge the document was given. It was  adopted at an extraordinary session of  the federal party held in November.  The memorial proper is divided into  two parts. The first of these is a petition for annexation and a representation of form of government desired. In  this subdivision the federal party sets  forth that it has made an exhaustive  study of both the Filipinos and the  Americans, and concludes that from the  mass of data collected it is the "intention of the two peoples that they should  never be disunited." The memorial announces as principles for this union the  formation of a "more perfect union,  establishment of just-we, the insurance  of domestic tranquility, promotion of  the general welfare and the securing of  the blessing of liberty."  The memorial then proceeds: "To  make of the Philippines a colony of the  United States, or to grant independence  to the Philippines, would be to hand  the Philippines over to disorder and to  anarchy, to destruction and to . chaos.  In effect, the colonial system involves  the principles of difference of citizenship, inequality of rights and other consequent abuses and injustices, all of  which we Filipinos were surfeited under  the Spanish government, and for this  reason we reject everything which tends  toward a colony. Philippine independence, with or without a protectorate,  means a holding of power by all the terrible elements of sects which predominate and would predominate still for  some years. Federation or annexation  would settle all these, difficulties by concentrating the interest of the Filipino  people upon education and labor."  A preliminary form of government,  similar to that of the territories of the  Uuitcd States is outlined as suitable for  the Philippines. The plan provides for  a governor and four executive secretaries to be appointed by the president of  the United States, and for a territorial  senate, in addition to a house of representatives, consisting of 30 members, 16  of whom are to be elected by the people  and the other appointed by the governor.  The memorial asks that the islands be  represented in the United States, house  of representatives by'two delegates.  Collision in New Jersey  NEW YORK, February 12.���A passenger train, bound from Jersey City to  Rahney, tonight ran into a freight train  in the Pennsylvania Railroad.Company's  yards at Waverly, near Newark, resulting in the death of the engineer of the  nassenger-train.-the, serious 'injury, of  the fireman, conductor and baggageman  of the passenger train, and the entire  freight train crew.

Markham, Liberal member of parliament, for the Mansfield division of Nottinghamshire. The latter was charged  with publishing a letter, written by Dr.  Krause, directely accusing Foster of  connection with illicit diamond buying.  The case is an off-shoot of th*- suit  brought for slander in March last, by  Wernher, Beit & Company, against Mr.  Markham.  Rae Wins in Winnipeg  WINNIPEG, February 12.���The fourteenth annual Winnipeg curling bonspiel began today with the New York  Life challenge competition, in which 112  rinks are entered.

She merely assumes theoretical  obligations toward Japan, whereas the  latter's obligations toward England  take a much more practical character.  It does not seem as if Japan has much  'reason to congratulate herself on the  treaty, while the other powers cannot  remain indifferent to an alliance which  will leave England much less accomodating in the far east.  The Francais says: The most important result will be to give England  greater freedom in the remainder of the  world.  LORD  DUFFERIN   IS  DEAD  Winnipeg's News Budget  WINNIPEG, February 12.���R. JVIos-  crop was found dead in a stable of his  uncle, vetcinary Clark, at Russell. He  came formerly from Stratford, Ontario.  There is no suspicion of suicide or foul  play.  The Retail Implement Dealers' Association is in session to discuss the credit  system in vogue, and other matters,  there being 278 members present.  R. J. McKenzie and Thomas Kelly  have purchased property on Main street,  next to the Dominion bank, for $1000  a foof; and will erect a 10-story offlce  buildin:*:.  J. K. McLennan, first, vice president  of the Dominion Alliance, has resigned,  not being in accord -with the Alliance's  attitude towards the referendum.  The tide of emigration has already  started, a large party of British settlers  arriving today. The Dominion agents  held meetings at Hallock and Crookston,  Minnesota, this week, and the halls could  not contain the crowd of farmers who  desired to hear of the liberal C. P. R.  and Dominion government land policy.  . Bad Wreck on the Erie  CLEVELAND, February 12.���A passenger train on the Erie, leaving Cleveland at one o'clock this afternoon for  New York, was wrecked between  Mahoning and Phlanx, about 40 miles  from this city, this afternoon. The  whole train left the tracks, aud ran on  for twenty car lengths, .finally toppling  over in a ditch. Twenty-one persons aro  reported injured, but it is believed no  fatalities occurred. As the train is  made up in thia city most of the injured  Arrested the Employees  TROY, February 12.���Twenty-three  conductors and motor men of the United  Traction Company were arrested by the  police tonight, because they refused to  allow policemen to ride free on passes  issued by mayor Conway. They were  arrested in the course of a controversy  between the company and the city officials over the right of the police and  firemen to ride free on street cars.  Former Governor General of Canada  LONDON, February 12.���The marquis  of Dufferin, former governor-general of  Canada, and who had filled many high  diplomatic positions in the English service, died at 6:25 this morning at his  residence at Clandeboye, county Down,  Ireland. Lord Dufferin had been long in  ill health. He passed away peacefully  after a night of total unconsciousness.  Lord Dufferin never wholly recovered  from the shock which he experienced  as the result of the death of his son,  lord Ava, in South Africa, and the failure of the London & Globe Finance Corporation, Limited, and kindred companies of which he was a director, completed his break-down. With the exception of his youngest son, lord Hamilton Temple-Blackwood, who is with  his regiment, the ninth lancers, in South  Africa, all the family were present at  the death bed.  Lord Clandeboye, the eldest son, who  is a clerk in the foreign office, and who  married Florence, daughter of John H.  Davis, of New York, succeeds to the  title. The funeral of lord Dufferin will  be private. His remains will be buried,  in the grave yard at Clandeboye on  February 15th.  The papers comment on lord Dufferin's paltry pension of ��1,800 yearly,  which necesitated his mixing up in city  companies. The St. James Gazette says:  "It is not a pleasant reflection that if  the nation had acted with justice towards such a man, as it has now lost,  he might have been spared the humiliation which he brought upon himself in  consequence of the circumstances in  which he was left in the last days of his  brilliant career."  GRAND FORKS, February 12.���[Special to The Tribune.]���The coke supply  from the Crow's Nest, as effecting British Columbia smelters, promises to become a live issue. The Grand Forks  board of trade last night adopted the fol-  lowink resolution:  Resolved "that a resolution dealing  with the question cf the coke and coal  supply from the Crow's Nest, and the  protection of the government reserve  therein, be brought before the associated boards of trade of the Kootenays  and Yale at its approaching meeting at  Kaslo.  A resolution- requesting the Dominion  government to fill the vacancy on the  supreme court bench of the province,  rendered vacant by the death "of the  late chief justice McColl, was also  adopted.  IT SURPRISED THE POWERS  Hohenzollern at Sandy Hook  NEW" YORK, February 12.���The German imperial yacht Hohenzollern was  inside tlie Sandy Hook lightship at  11:57, coming into port.

Tracing Bresci's Aocomplices  NEW YORK, February 12.���In a report received by the police of this city  from the ambassadors in Washington  and the Italian consul in New York, the  direct assertion is made, the Herald will  say tomorrow, that the killing of king  Humbert was planned here. The police  have named the men who conspired  with Gaetano Bresci. Many of them are  still at liberty.  Ultimatum Story Discredited  WILLEMSTADT, Island of Curocao,  February 12.���No news is obtainable  here confirming the report that Germany has presented, or intends to present Venezuela with an ultimatum, and  that this was the, reason for the" concentration of the German ships at La  Guaira.   The report is not believed here.��  A Flattering Offer  HALIFAX, February 12.���It is stated  here that the bishopric of Melbourne,  Australia, has been offered to bishop  Courtney, of Nova Scotia. The bishop  is now at Nice, Italy, visiting Mrs.  Courtney, who is there for her health.  $10,000 Libel Suit Against an M. P.  LONDON, February 12.���John Douglas  Foster, the lawyer who was attached to  lord Roberts' staff in South Africa and  whom Dr. Krause, the former governor  cf Johannesburg, was accused of attempting to have murdered, obtained a  verdict of ��2,000 damages for libel in  Tolstoi's Condition  YALEA, Crimea, February 12.���Count  Tolstoi is continually growing weaker.  His temperature is low and his pulse  varies from 100 to 102. The pneumonia  is not spreading and the improvement  in his pulse and temperature has  awakened hopes that he will rally. All  the members of the count's family are  asesmbled at his bedside.  Cab Man Killed  TORONTO, February 12.���Francis Mc-  Grath, a well known cab man, in round-,  ing the corner of Simcoe and Union  streets yesterday, fell from his cab and  fractured his skull, dying two hours  later at the Emergency hospital.

The Victoria's Won  MONTREAL, February 12.���The hockey match this evening resulted 8 to 2  in favor of the Victorias, in the Victoria  vs Shamrock scries.    .  Opinions on the New Treaty  LONDON, February 12.���The Liberal  afternoon newspapers view the new  "Dual Alliance" between Great Britain  and Japan with mixed feeling. The  Conservative organs generally applaud  it, but the St. James Gazette, Conservative, expresses "modifyed rapture at this  wide departure from the British traditional policy." This paper, however,  finds solace in the thought that the policy and interests of the United States  are identical with those of Great Britain and Japan, and concludes: "Perhaps  we shall find, when the policy of Great  Britain is definitely known, that the  United States is formally, or informally  a party to the league of peace in the far  east. At any rate, no effort should be  spared to secure its adhesion."  The Westminster Gazette thinks the  alliance can be fairly termed offensive  and defensive, and says that, it therefore, has a dangerously wide extension  and concludes that it looks like a rather  hasty answer to European hostility.  LONDON, February 12.���Baron Hay-  ashi, Japan's minister here, who signed  the treaty on behalf of Japan, in an interview published today declared that  the anglo-Japanese treaty was not "directed specially against Russia, but undoubtedly Manchuria was within its  scope. It was solely meant to maintain  the statu quo. The Manchurian question  was at present the subject of negotiations betwen Russia and the United  States, representing the interest of all  the other powers. Ihe present treaty  has no collaterals in the shape of  treaties between Japan and other  powers, but it does not exclude the possibility of a similar treaty between  Japan and Russia, of course with the  full knowledge of Great Britain.   PEKIN, February 12.���The news of  the signing of the Anglo-Japanese treaty  of alliance became known to a few  diplomats here today, and was an absolute surprise. The treaty is regarded  as the most important move made in  far eastern politics in recent years. The  Japanese minister visited prince Ching,  president of the foreign oflice, and gave  him a copy of the treaty. It is not  doubted among the diplomats here that  the new alliance will effectually veto  the signing of the Manchurian treaty.  The British minister, sir Ernest M.  Satow, the Japanese minister Uchida,  and the United States minister, Mr.  Conger, have recently been pressing  prince Ching to postpone signing the  Manchurian treaty, and obtained a  promise to defer so doing until fresh  representations could be made, which  representations were made today in the  form of a copy of the Anglo-Japanese  treaty. The Chinese officials, who were  informed of the signing of the treaty,  expressed the greatest satisfaction. They  said British prestige in the far east had  been given a tremendous advancement.  PARIS, February 12.���The view taken  in diplomatic circles here is that the  Anglo-Japanese alliance, being purely  defensive, is in no wise a disquieting  element in the eastern situation. The  agreement, it is here claimed, excludes  Manchuria, and Russia, therefore, is  not menaced there. The alliance is  taken to indicate that Great Britain has  abandoned her opportunist and vacillation attitude of recent years, in the far  east, for a fixed policy, and that the result will certainly make for the peace  of the world. The question of Corea,  provided in the first article, cannot lead  to a disturbance of peace. Japan also  is not in an aggressive mood. One of  the first results of the alliance will probably be a new Japanese loan, as Japan  has need of money.  The Temps says: The new alliance  seems to indicate that the British government intends inaugurating a new  policy in the far east, rt Is an inova-  tion without precedent for a century.  England thereby changes her policy of  "free hands" for a policy of "tied hands."  There is, perhaps, a direct relation between this and the sort of diplomatic  revolution and chance of situation regarding Wei Hai Wei.  The Journal des Debats remarks: We  think England gets the best of the bar-  Story of Capture Confirmed  WILLEMSTADT, Isle ui Curacoa, February 12.���A schooner which communicated  yesterday with the Venezuelan revolutionary steamer Libertador, confirms the report that the latter sank the Venezuelan  gunboat, General Crispo recently near Cu-  inarebo. The captain and crew of the Crispi are prisoners on board the Libertador.  The Venezuelan gunboat Bolivar is cruising- in these waters. The Libertador is also off this land. The scant details obtainable regardin gthe sinking of the Crispo,  are that the Libertador surprised the gov-  ernmen gunboat near Cumarebo at night,  pursude her and obliged tlie Crispo to run  ashore. The political situation in Venezuela is unchanged. It is described as not. being a revolution, but a circle of uprisings  near Valencia, Puerto Cabello and Tucaus.  The Venezuelan gunboat Miranda, the best  of the Venezuelan lleet, was towed into  Puerto Cabello yesterday with a broken  shaft. The other Venezuelan gunboats are  more or less in the same condition.  clause by clause. If sufficient strength indicated being behind it, it would then be  enforced. He defended the referendum and  said Iiourinet had assured him that it was  a perfectly constitutional course. Most of  his speech was an argument in favor of the  constitutionality of referendum rather than  elucidating the bill or a committal statement regarding the advisability of enacting a prohibition law. As to the majority  necessary to secure its success, premier  Itoss was non-committal. He said some  states in the American union only required  a majority, others demanded two-thirds  majority. He quoted opinions of prominent  men who believed that there should be a  substantial^ majority before a prohibition  measure could be properly enforced after  its submission to the people.  DRUMMOND ON OLD MEN  LILLIE IS CHIEF  SELECTED FROM A LARGE  FIELD  POWERS STILL SQUABBLING  Over American Friendships  BERLIN, February 12.���The statement of  the under secretary of.the British foreign  office, lord Cranborne, in the house of commons yesterday, caused amusement there,  since the German officials assume that lord  Pauncefote's proposal of April 14th, 1S9S,  to the ambassadors of the other countries  could not have been made witnout instructions from the home government. The German officials point out that Henry Norman's inquiry in the house of commons,  was shaped purposely to give it the appearance of covering fully the North German Gazette's statement of Monday, without doing so, since the German side has  never charged that the British ambassadors generally did anything, but that one  ambassador, lord Pauncefote, made a proposal. Lord Cranborne's answer, therefore,  is treated here as being a mere verbal  quibble. Moreover the impression made on  the ambassadors of other powers at the  conference held at Washington on April  *14th, 1S9S, was that lord Pauncefote was  merely sounding them to determine how an  intervention proposal, expected later from  Austria, would be received. Lord Pauncefote's proposal was understood as an independent initiative. Referring further to the  statement cabled from American official  sources that the "United States never received such a proposition from Great Britain as described here, the informant of the  correspondent of the Associated Press replies "of course not, we have never charged  that the matter reached the American government, but- said the proposition was  balked by Germany before going so far."  It is uncertain at tliis moment whether the  German government will forthwith publish the documents or await further developments.  BERLIN, February 12.���The official Roi-  chzaniger this evening published the following: "In order to definitely clear up the  question, so far as it affects Germany, in  regard to the attitude of the powers, in the  spring of 1S9S, relative to the idea of intervention in the Spanish-American conflict,  we publish two documents which follow.  The first is dated Berlin, April 15th, 1S9S,  and the second is addressed to the emperor  by count Von Buelow, then secretary of  state. Count Von Buelow transmits to the  emperor a telegram from Dr. Von Hollen-  ben, dated Washington, as follows:  "The British ambassauur today took the  initiative, in a very remarkable manner,  in a new collective step of the representatives of the great powers here. We suppose the queen regent made representations  to the queen of England. In this sense, the  six representatives at the request of the  British ambassador, telegraphing to their  governments in the sense which follows:  " 'In view of the attitude of congress no  hope of peace can any longer be enter-  "tainedrand'the-'general'dpinion'isr that-the'  powers also would have no objection to  war. A good basis for fresh negotiations  appeared to have been afforded by the Spanish minister on April 10th. Jf this view is  shared by the governments, it seems advisable to dispel the erroneus notion here,  with the support of the civilized world.  The president in the message of December  said it was only in that case that he desired intervention. The 'representatives of  the powers here think in these circumstances, that tho great powers might direct  the attention of the American government  to the Spanish note of j��prll 10th, anil  might declare that intervention did not  appear to be justified. This declaration  might take the form of a collective note  from the powers to the representative of  the United States. Such a document would  produce of greater impression, and the representative of tho powers here, would not  then incur the risk of appearing only to repeat their first step, which the president in  his latest message has not oven deigned  to mention. In the event of an identical  note being decided upon, it would be advisable to publish it immediately In order that  the civilized world, to whose authority the  appeal i.s made, may be absolved from reproach ln approving of this attack." "  Dr. Von Holdan adds: "Personally I regard this demonstration somewhat coldly."  And to this concluding sentence of the ambassador, the emperor appended the following note: "1 regard it as completely futile  and purposeless, and therefore prejudicial.  I am against this step."  Victoria's Happenings  VICTORIA, February 12.���Captain James  Carroll, manager at Seattle of the Alaska  Commercial Company, arrived here today  in connection of the wreck of the steamer  Bertha belonging to that company. He has  engaged a diver, but will not go north until  the departure of the regular steamer, believing that the steamer will be lloaled  without difficulty.  Chief Langlcy Is positive that Kauffman,  wanted in San Francisco in connection  with the murder of a policeman, was here  last week. The man suspected came here  on the steamer Victoria from Tacoma,  when that steamer wa.s on her way to the  Orient. He was begging anil selling perfumery and wa.s ordered out of town. He  went to Nanaimo, and thence to Vancouver. He had a wound on one of his wrists  and his lingers were also injured.  They Hinder Industry  CHICAGO, February 12.���A special from  London to the Record-Herald says: The  question of how to deal with old men Is  agitating British employers. The feeling is  growing that the commercial success of the  United States is due to its confidence in  young men and to its willingness to promote them to responsible positions.  Seymour Bell, the British commercial  agent in Chicago, the other afternoon attended a meeting of the London chamber  of commerce for the purpose of advising  its members how to increase English trade  in America. One of the first questions was  asked by H. L. Symonds, managing director of Mordani & Company, the largest  manufacturers of novelties in Great Britain, who wished to know what the United  United States does with Us old men.  "This is the most crucial question confronting our manufacturers," he said.  "Everywhere we are loaded with employees  from fifty to sixty years old, who retard  progress at every step. In my opinion it  would be better to retire them on half pay  and substitute youthful energies and  ideas." ���*���...  Mr. Symonds declared that Americans in  similar cases did not employ men over 45  years of age, and that such men were frequently compelled to take menial positions.  He said that he knew or an instance where  a man had been receiving -515,000 a year  was now glad lo work for $75 a week.  Charles S. Drummon, director of the  British Klectric Traction Company, said:  "1 am convinced that England is on the  verge of a commercial revolution. Young-  men, long depressed and discouraged, are  revolting. Inspired by the many examples  of success among the youth of America  and the colonies, they demand that they  be given the same opportunities at home.  "They attribute England's apparent inability to cope with the Yankees to the  fossilized methods of their elders. The older men will surely be forced to the wall unless they speedily awake to the necessity  of proceeding on modern lines."  Mr. Drummond went on to state that the  only way England could meet America on  equal terms was by the prompt introduction of labor saving machinery and the  specialization of work by certain factories.-  A member of the chamber pointed out that  such a reform would meet with an initial  dudiculty in the opposition or trades unions  to the introduction of labor saving devices. He foresaw trouble ahead for employers and workmen. .    . /*  COUNCIL   DISPENSES WITH  THE  SERVICES OF DE.

Copies  of such instructions are directed to be forwarded at once to the department.  Five Tears for Stealing Diamonds  GLENDIVE, Montana, February 12.���J.  McCarthy, a base ball player, has been sentenced to five years in the penitentiary for  the theft of nearly $15,000 worth of diamonds from the trunks of Claussen, a traveling salesman for a Minneapolis jewelry  house. McCarthy confessed the crime and  led the officers to the cache where he had  secreted the plunder. The trunks were  rilled as they lay in the express room of  Lhe depot.  Want Imperial Preference  TORONTO, February 12.���The board of  trade today passed a resolution to the effect that if Great Britain should place a  tax on products similar to those produced  In Canada, preference should be given to  products grown within the empire. The  resolution will be forwarded to the premier for transmission to Hon. Joseph Chamberlain before the British budget is brought  down.  Want Further Kednctions  TORONTO, February 12���The Canadian  Press Association are not satisfied with  reductions made by the government on the  paper duty in that they do not give relief  to small purchasers. The restriction of the  reduced duty to paper costing not more  than 2*4 cents per pound does not give them  much relief. The government will be asked  to further reduce the duty.  At the meeting of the city council last  evening ex-chief Lillie was re-appointed a3  chief of the .fire department, the services  of Dr. LaBau were dispensed with, and -  the recommendation to declare vacant the  position of city engineer, on the score of  economy, was referred back to the committee on public works to be .further considered.  The appointment of the fire chief was by  ballot. No discussion took place, and beyond spending' a few minutes in the examination of the thirteen applicants, the  election passed oft without Incident. On the  first ballot but three applicants were voted  for, the ballots reading: Thomas Lillie.  Nelson, 3; Thomas Deasey, Victoria,'2; and  Thomas Sargeant, 2. A second ballot was  taken, when the votes recorded ln the previous ballot were divided between Lillie  and Sargeant, which left the vote for Lil-~-  lie 4 and Sargeant 3. On the result being-  ascertained the mayor expressed his "regret at the decision of the council, and  stated that he was sorry for the city. He  subsequently declared that before confirming the appointment of the ex-chief he  would authorize an investigation of the  cause of his dismissal, which in justice to  the late council and himself they were entitled to.  On motion of alderman-Morrison, seconded by alderman Drew, it was moved that  the services of the medical health officer be  dispensed with.    Before this    was    finally  adopted,   all   the  aldermen,   except  Selous  :voting yea,  a short discussion ensued,  in  ; which the mayor and alderman Selous entered a vigorous protest against the action  .'of the mover and the seconder of the motion. The mayor claimed that^while he had  | differed from some of the actions of the  : health officer, as    the   finance   committee  .could   testify,  yet  he  was  of  the opinion  J that on the whole the duties had.been dis-  \ charged as well and as economically as it  I was possible under the circumstances, and  ihe compared the cost of the operation of  ��� the health by-law with that of other cities,  ��� claiming that' it. suffered' nothing by the  i comparison.  j Alderman Selous supported the mayor  .and desired to place himself on record as  j opposed to the motion.  !    Alderman  Drew claimed'that there was  [room for difference of opinion on the mat-'  i ter, and that, while willing: to allow liberty  i of-thought to.others hfc claimed the same  I right for those supporting the motion, who  were  decidedly  of   the  opinion   that   such  was  not  the case,   and   that   the  medical  health department had not been economically conducted.  Alderman Scanlan concurred in this view  of the case, and claimed that in addition  to extravagance there   had    been   partial  ! enforcement of the health by-law.  Alderman   Morrison   claimed   that   there  ; was no need to keep the position filled all  the time by the same man, and it was time  that a change was made.  During the time that the report of the  board of public works committee was.under  discussion the council by a unanimous  > vote, agreed to go into a committee of the  whole and excluded the reporters. The report was presented and voted ,on seriatim.  , The committee adopted four of the clauses:  (1) Supplying SOO feet of lumber to J. A. Al-  ������ len for the construction of a sidewalk on  "Ward street, from Gore street to the lane;  (2) that one day scavenger was all that was  required, and that the council recommend  a reduction of the men employed; (3) that  the lumber required by the city during the  present year for sidewalks, etc., be called  ��� for by tender; and (4) that notice boards  be  placed  around  the  city  regarding  the  , depositing of rubbish, etc.  The clause referring to the vacating of  the city engineer's office was referred back  to the committee.  ^=-It^was^agred==thai=the=meetlngs=of��� the���  : council should be held'fortnightly after the  next meeting, which will be held on Monday evening next, when applications for  the position of medical health officer will  be received and the report of the finance  committee discussed.  During the discussion .of the matter relating to the appointment of a medical  health officer, it was moved by alderman  Morrison and seconded by alderman Drew  that the council at once proceed to ballot  for a new officer, but before the motion  was put, on the recommendation of the  mayor, the motion was amended as above.

One of the most interesting articles
published in connection with the controversy over the working of the government's coal lands in the Crow's Nest,
appears in the last issue of the Canadian Mining Review. .In this contfection
it may be said that the editor of the
Review, in former articles dealing with
coal areas of the Crow's Nest, has given
evidence   of   an   intimate   and   highly
technical knowledge,   not   only  of  the
coal measures themselves, but with respect of the cost of their  working  and
incidentally of the   policy   pursued   by
the Crow's Nest Coal Company, which
is now dominated by James J. Hill.   So
much turns upon the policy of the federal government   with   respect  to   the
working of the Dominion reserve of coal
to the best method of working the said
caol lands is eagerly sought, especially
in  this  province.    In  the  outset it  is
generally understood that if a mistake is
made by the federal authorities in the
working or disposition of  its   coal   reserve,    the    very    object    of    making
the reserve will be dereated.   It is this
conviction which has arrayed,  with a
few notable exceptions,   the   press   of
British Columbia against the threatened
monopoly  of  the  Bast  Kootenay  coke
supply by granting   to   James   J.   Hill
or the Crow's Nest Coal Company, the
last  remaining available   site  for   the
economic working of the coal measures
of the Crow's  Nest  Pass.    What  they
ask of the government is that arrangements be made for the working of the
government coal lands by a company independent of the Crow's Nest Coal Company and its influences.   Aside from the
danger of placing the entire mining and
smelting industry of the province under
the thumb of an alien, and at least commercially hostile interest, they desire to
secure competition for the British Columbia  smelters   in   their, purchase   of
coal and coke. Either of these considerations should be sufficient to determine
the  federal  government In  its  line  of
action.   The issue as pointed out in the
last issue of the Canadian Mining Review   is   an   exceedingly   narrow   one.
There are six strategic positions for the
working of the  coal   measures   of   the
Crow's   Nest.     The   Crow's   Nest  Coal
Company and its allied interests have
secured five of them, one of which is
outside of the company's free hold and
upon lands which otherwise would have
been available for selection by the government.    There is one other stategic
position and the Crows Nest Coal Company is after it also.   The issue is shall
the  present company  be  permitted  to
acquire this, and thus effectually shut
out all competition in the supplying of
.coal and CPke   to   British   Columbia's
smelters, or shall.the government withhold this site from the monopoly and
lease a sufficient area of coal lands to
an independent company and secure
the desired competition for British Columbia's smelters. The light of past
experience should convince the federal
government of the very vital consequences of its choice. Arrayed against
the greed of the Crow's Nest Coal Company is the welfare of the mining and
smelting industry of British Columbia.
As to the policy of the Crow's Nest
Coal Company in the past the finding
of the Canadian Mining Review speaks
for itself. It should be read by all who
profess a desire to promote the welfare
of the province, and is appended:
Whilst Canadian consumers have been
clamoring in the past season for both coal
and coke, and have often been unable to
obtain the necessary supplies to keep our
smelters in operation, train- loads ot coal
and coke have been passing daily into the
States, either by way of Lethbridge and
Great Falls or by way of Creston Junction
and Bonner's Ferry, and in the late fall
matters reached such a crisis that it was
only by determined action on the part of
the railway company, who refused to supply cars for the carriage of fuel to American points whilst our own smelters were
unsupplled that we were able to get what
we wanted. ,        '
Further,  there has been a constant discrimination  against  Canadians  in respect
of the price of coke if not of coal.  Coke
' supplied   to  the  Great  Falls  smelter  has
been furnished as low as $3.50 a ton on cars
at Fernie, whilst until nuke recently Can-
reductions  bringing the  price down  to  $1
Largely  owing to  the- clamor  which  this
aroused and realizing the impossibility of
continuing such unfair discrimination the
coal company have,recently made several
er price than at $2 and $4 f. o. b. will have
to date.  This,  however,  has only resulted
from  the force of public opinion  and the
extreme   pressure   brought   to   bear   upon
them by Canadian smelters. There is a general  concensus  of- opinion among smelter
experts that coal and coke at a much lower price than at %'i and +■« i. o. b. will have
to  be  provided  if  the low  grade  ores  of
British Columbia are to be worked, in fact
It is not going too far to say that the continued existence of the Boundary country
as an ore producer is absolutely dependent
on   this   factor.   Mr.   Paul   Johnson, _ than
whom   no   higher  authority   on   Canadian
stated that the cost of smelting Boundary
ores had been reduced to the absolute minimum,   a  statement  in  which   he  is   confirmed by a no less eminent and independent authority than Dr.  A.  R.  Ledoux of
New York. Air. Johnson further stated that
the cost had been brought within a trifle
of $2.25 per ton, and  of  this  cost  no  less
than 05 per cen represents fuel. With  the
low grade value of these ores now fully demonstrated   it   becomes   evident   how   important  a matter it  is  to  secure  cheaper
fuel and no one doubts that the only guarantee for this would be effective competition with the only corporation producing it.
No  legal  restrictions  which  could  be  Imposed  would, be  half    so    effective    as    a
healthy    commercial    competition,    a  fact
which   has  already   been  demonstrated   in
the history of the Crow's Nest Puss Coal
Whilst no one suggests that coal and
coke can be produced as cheaply In the
west as In the east, it is palpable that with
Pennsylvania coal averaging $1.00 f. o. b.
and coke $1.65, Crow's Nest coal at $2 and
coke at $4 is an unreasonable figure, a fact
which Is further emphasized when we remember that in consequence of this cheap
eastern production Pittsburg coke is actually transported three thousand miles
to the western smelters and used there today.
We have all along contended that Crow's
Nest coke can be produced at $2.50 and
that it should therefore be sold at $3 per
ton. We have no doubt whatever that if
Mr. Sifton arrives at the decision which
may be reasonably expected of him and allows effective competition to be established
on Morrissey creek, we shall within twelve
months from the commencement of operations see coke of equal grade to the Fernie
coke being sold to Canadian smelters at
$3 f. o. b. and coal at not more than $1.50.

On the Litigation Evil
LONDON, February 12.—The temperance question has come to the front in
a sensational way. Two famous army
officers are arrayed on one side; on the
other stands the chancellor of the exchequer. The army men belong to different organizations. One is lord Roberts of Kandahar, commander-in-chief
of the British forces; the other is general William Booth, leader of the Salvation army.
The former hits at the canteen; general Booth strikes, at' the drunkard in
general. Moreover, the latter looks for
the assistance of keepers of publio
houses to aid him in his work of reform by refusing liquor to persons
known to be habitual drunkards. It is
the further purpose of general Booth to
list the drunkards, follow them to their
homes and by moral suasion seek to
have them abandon the downward path.
It is stated that, the good results fol-
lowing the wiping out of the army canteen in the United States have prompted
the initiative taken by lord Roberts.
While he does not aim at the annihilation of the canteen from the army establishment here, he desires- reforms
that shall remove from the private soldiers' club the glamor of music hall and
relegate to the background the mere
traffic in liouor.
His aim is to have the regimental institutes under one roof, that the buildings shall be properly fitted out with
reading rooms, billiard rooms, etc.; that
soft drinks shall have special privileges,
and that the liquor bar shall be by itself,
where it cannot vie with the attraction
of the other apartments.
General Roberts further desires that
control shall be vested in the hands of
one committee, and that the profits
shall be indifferently divided among all
departments. This system, if carried
out, will be a blow to the brewer and to
the free regimental music hall. Heretofore they have always run in partnership, and generally the brewer has provided the entertainment.
All these temperance plans have won
the high commendation of teetotalers
and non-conformists, but the prohibition element has received a shock from
an unexpected direction—from sir Michael Hicks-Beach, chancellor of the exchequer. The statement of this high
cabinet officer was distinctly to the effect
that the liquid agency that provided so
much revenue for national expenses is
under the protecting wing of the government.
Sir Michael was a guest the other
night of the Bristol Licensed Victualers'
Protective and Benevolent Association,
and there inveigled against the prohibition propganda. He declared not only
that it was the hope of the government
to place no more tax burdens on the
liquor traffic, but he railed at the teetotalers and their crusade against strong
The chancellor said there was in the
minds of many persons a deep and rooted belief that the making or the consumption or sale of alcoholic liquor was
a sin and ought, to be punished by parliament as a crime. This, he asserted,
was absurd. To propose to prohibit the
manufacture, sale and consumption of
intoxicating liquors because a compar-
as it would be to say that because a
certain number of men yielded to the
sin of immorality therefore every good-
looking woman should be compelled to
veil herself, and to shut herself up, as
they did in eastern countries, in order
that the temptations of beauty might
not be offered to the sons of men.
All this, of course, has had a rasping
effect on the prohibitionists, but the
chancellor of the exchequer, obviously
for the purpose of winning friends
among the publicans, managed also to
,arouse the ire of other members of the
community. These are the club men of
various grades. He declared that clubs
are in many cases only drinking places

hoped that parliament would direct its
attention to the supression of the places
that are mere drinking resorts.
Sir Michael has managed by his talk
to create new foes for the government.
He has always possessed in a marked
degree the gentle art of making enemies,
and it is not unlikely that he had a few
bad quarters of an hour with certain
members of the cabinet.
With the temperance question and the
anti-ritualist movement, it can be readily seen how the religious element in
England is worked up at the present
time. The ritualist issue also has been
the means of fomenting an anti-Roman
Catholic feeling that is especially directed against those members of religious
congregations, who, having been expelled from France, are seeking refuge
The result is an unpleasant condition
for tolerant people of all classes. These
latter naturally desire not only freedom
of conscience but personal freedom in
the matter of food and drink.

These eight centuries witnessed  tho crowning of no less than thirty-six  English monarchs, of whom live were  queens. The crownings of nearly all were  marked with Incidents and events of an  untoward character, not by any means provided for in the oilicial programs; and to  that extent nearly, all more or less deserve the titles of coronations extraordinary.  In the case of our late beloved queen  such incidents were not of a very noticeable kind, and the few that have been recorded are today generally familiar. The  coronation service was abridged, a precedent which king Edward wisely decided to  follow. Tho day was changed from Juno  26th to June 2Sth, to avoid the anniversary  of George VI.'s death. In the abbey only  two occurrences befell in any sense worthy  of the title untoward. The octogenarian,  lord Rolles, when his turn came to do homage, stumbled and feci at the foot ot the  throne. The young queen made an impulsive step forward to save him, a graceful  act which added much to her popularity.  The coronation ring, called by some writers  "the wedding ring of England, proved too  small Tor the proper linger. But archbishop  Howlcv would accept no compromises in  accepting the queen's little linger, for  which it had actually been measured, for  the proper finger on which it ought to go.  He forced it into its prescribed place and  it was only by the application of iced water .  to the swollen knuckle that the ring could **  be removed after the coronation. The orb,  mound or globe, which is put into the sovereign's hand Immediately before the  crowning, seemed to the youthful queen to  be something ot a strain. "What am I to  do with this," she asked of the high oilicial  who had presented it to her. "It is very  heavy." Hold it, your majesty," came the  laconic reply.  The arrangements for the coronation of  "William XV., states a contemporary writer,  fretfully, were a compromise between ceremony and parade. The procession from the  hall to the abbey, and the coronation feast  in the hall were omitted, but a train of gay  equipages and beautiful horses made some  compensation for the former. The most  extraordinary incident arose after the ceremony was over. In the evening the king  was missed by his entourage. After a long  search they had the satisfaction of finding him in a back street near St. James'  Palace, and they barely arrived in time  to save him from the embarrassing attentions of a friendly mob. His excitement  had thus driven him out of doors, where he  amused himself with scattering guineas  among his numerous subjects.  It is a far cry from this last sovereign  to the first of his name. The coronation of  William 1., the Norman conqueror, takes  us at once Into the age where odd incidents  often meant grim tragedy. Ho was very  anxious that his conquest of England  should at least appear to be sanctioned by  the people, and he therefore gave orders  that his new subjects should be invited to  witness tlie coronation ceremony on Christinas day, 10GG. One noticeable absentee, was  tho Anglo-Saxon archoishop ol' Canterbury, who resolutely refused to officiate.  After William had taken the coronation  oath, to protect the church and forbid oppression, the officiatin-, priest asked the  question: "Will ye have this prince to be  vour king?" The people shouted "Yes," and  their shouts alarmed Ihe Norman garrison in tlie city, who believed that the English had revolted. Tho soldiers flew to arms  and spread fire and .word through the  streets. The congregation rushed out of the  church, the English to stop the fire, the  Normans to plunder. The bishop, clergy,  and monks who remained within the  church were in such confusion that they  were scarecely able to go through the  ceremony of crowning the king. William  himself, who saw the tumuli, and could  not conjecture its cause, sat trembling at  Ihe foot of the altar but ordered the ceremony to be completed all the same.  The crowning of his younger son, Henry  I., was marked by an unseemly wrangle  between the archbishop of the day and the  bishop of Salisbury. The former, a certain  Ralph of Escures, had palsy; it was therefore considered that the actual fixing of the  crowns on the heads of the kings ind  queen, Adelica, should be relegated to Roger, bishop of Salisbury. Archbishop Ralph  appears not to have been informed of this  arrangement. And when he saw the other  bishop take up the crown to place It on the  king's htad, he tried to snatch it away  from the other's hand. And he succeeded;  and the crown nearly toppled from off the  king's head, so soon, as the palsied hands  of the archbishop had placed it there.  King Stephen, who broke his oath of allegiance to empress Matilda, was crowned  in the midst of the most terific storm.  The turmoil of the elements threw the performers at his coronation into such a state  of confusion that the consecrated water  fell on the ground, the kiss of peace after  the sacrament was omitted, and even the  final benediction was forgotten.  Oddly enough the first coronation of  which anything like a full account is given  in the ancient chronicle* is that if Richard  Coeur de Lion, whose reign was so short  and disastrous. It was noted as a mark of  his arrogance that, like Napoleon, centuries afterward, he crowned himself, only  allowing archbishop Baldwin to perform  the other ceremonies.  To turn aside for a moment from the  dark ages of superstition and butchery!  A pleasant story is told of the coronation  of Edward VI., the little Tudor king who  never came to his majority that he might  show posterity what kind of a man he was,  but whom some who knew him have spoken of as tlie "Lion's whelp." He was  crowned at Westminster Abbey February  !>Uth, 1540. In the course of the ceremony,  when the three swords for the three kingdoms were brought to be. carried before  him, tho king observed that there was yet  one wanting and called for the bible. "That  is tho sword of the spirit," said he, "and  ought in all right to govern, us, who use  these for the peoule's safety, by God's appointment." Another incident at this coronation is extraordinary, since it stands as  the solemn recognition of the young sovereign as the head of the reformed church.  There was no sermon, but archbishop  Crammer delivered an address, which the-  most famous deans of Westminster have  described as the boldest utterance ever delivered in the abbey. "The promises your  . highness hath made here at your- corona-  lion, to forsake the devil and all his works,  are not to be taken in the bishop of Rome's  sense, when you commit anything distasteful to that see, to hit your majesty in the  teeth, as pope Paul III, late bishop of  Rome, sent to your father, saying: 'Didst  thou not promise, at^our permission of thy  coronation, to forsake the devil and all his  works, and dost thou run to heresy?' "  Queens regent have played no inconsiderable part in the history of England.  Mary, the ruthless daughter of Henry VI11,  and Catherine of.Arragon, comes first. The  most characteristic incident, at her coronation was that she bad to be crowned by  Stephen Gardiner, bishop of Winchester,  since the intrepid Crammer and his brother  archbishop of York were both in the Tower. The masculine Elizabeth, whose reign  emulated the glories of our own' dear  -queen, observed to her maids after the unction that the "anointing oil was grease  and smelt ill."  ��� No other queen came to reign until after  the revolution against the Stuarts in 1688.  Then queen Mary. II. and her-husband,  William "of - Orange, ascended the. throne  left vacant' by the abdication 'of the new  aueen's father, James II. At the very'moment that the sovereigns were setting out  from Whitehall for Westminster, the news  reached them that the deposed king had  landed In Ireland. Simultaneously lord Nottingham lpaced in queeji^AIjir*^_Jiands Jlhe_  first letter���naturally full of reproaches���  that her father had written to her since  her accession. The ceremony took place on  April 11th, 16S9; and never had Westminster  witnessed a coronation which was hurried  through in a more "hugger-mugger" fashion. During one time it fell so dark that  no one could even see the faces of the king  and queen. For the first "time a second  chair of state was provided, into which  Mary was lifted, and like her husband,  girt with the sword and invested with the  symbols of authority. The princess Anne,  who stood near, said: "Madam, I pity your  fatigue."  Anno might well make tnat pitying remark, for when her turn came to be  crowned, two centuries ago (April 23rd,  1702), she had to be held up in a standing  position. She was the only infirm person  over crowned monarch of England, cither  before or since, and yet she had only completed her thirty-seventh year. Tho whole  of the plate used at tho coronation banquet  In Westminster hall, together with a vast  quantity of pewter and table linen, was  afterwards carried off by thieves.  Many quaint unrehearsed little effects,  and one or two rather tragic ones, arose  to mar the coronations of each one of tho  first three Georges. George 1., the flrst of  the Hanoverian line, knew no English. His  great officers of state around him had no  German, consequently the ruble had to  be explained to him through the medium  of dog Latin. But in the streets the joke  ran that much bad language had been used  between the sovereign and his courtiers  on that day. Francis Atterbury, the Tory  . bishop of Rochester, who tried his level  best to restore the Stuarts at the death of  queen. Anne, had the assurance to appear  officially. He was entitled to the throne  and canopy as his perquisites, but gracefully offered them to the king. The offering was then and there rudely repulsed,  the least which this somewhat Jesuitical  prelate could expect under the circumstances.  At the coronation of George II. and  queen Caroline, the dean and prebendaries  of Westminster brought the bible and the  regalia, but forgot the chalice and patten.  As the newspapers of tho day remarked,  pathetically, the little king soon got tired  of (he long drawn out ceremonies, and retired very early from the coronation feast.  George III. and good queen Charlotte,  were crowned September 22nd, 1781. It  proved the case of a coronation triumphing  over difficulties. To begin with it was very  nearly postponed owing to the strike of  the workingmen at Westminster hall for  higher wages. Then on the great day itself  the carl marshal forgot many indispensable  items; among others the sword of state,  the banquet chairs for the king and the  qucon, and the canopy. They were obliged  to borrow the ceremonial sword from the  lord mayor, and a hasty canopy was raised,  but evo'n then the procession was delayed  until noon. As the king was moving with  the crown on his head the great diumond  in the center fell to the ground, and was  not found again until after the day's proceedings. There i.s a story that the young  pretender witnessed tho coronation ceremony disguised as a woman, and that he  flung down a white glove in response to the  champion's gauntlet.  m  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  9\  to  189Q-BBTABLIBHBD IN NWL80N-1D02  %  Hi  Hi  �� Jacob Dover   The Jeweler  Nelson, B.

Cox, Indian agent at the  Quinault reservation, in the state of  Washington. Behind this act on the part  of the medical gentleman there is an  interesting story.  It will be remembered that many  weeks ago the French bark Earnest  Reyer was driven ashore at the mouth  of the Quinault river during a storm.  For a long time the officers and crew  of the vessel stood by her on the chance  that she might be saved. Among, her  cargo were a number of cases of fine  French liquors, and Dr. Cox gave the  officers of the bark to understand that  bn.no account were the Indians on the  Quinault reservation to be given or sold  any of the lio.uor.  After a time, it became patent that  the bark would become a total wreck,  in fact her back was broken by the  action of the river undermining her  amidships. ' Then it was that the officers  and crew forsook the vessel. The captain sold to a junk firm in Aberdeen,  Washington, what was left of the cargo,  and some two weeks ago this firm dispatched men to the-bark to recover her  cargo. Indians were hired to aid in the  work, and one of the first thing,, done  was to break open a cask of wine, and  the Indians declared themselves in on  its contents. This came to the ears of  Dr. Cox, and grabbing a hatchet he went  aboard the bark and demolished every  cask of wine in sight.  The owners complained bitterly, and  claim now that the Indian agent's jurisdiction, did hot extend to the position of  the Earnest Reyer, in other words, that  the bark was without the bounds of the  reservation. The boundary line of the  reservation on the shoreward side extends to low-water mark, and it is understood that the courts will be requested to decide ��� whether or not Dr. Cox  acted within his rights.

The Nelson junior hockey team are practicing hard with a view to entering for the  junior hockey championship of British Columbia, which will be contersetd for at  Rossland on the 20th, 21st and 22nd.  The tramway company announce that the  power at Bonnlngton Palls will be disconnected today from 7 a. m. until 5 p. m.,  which will compel the suspension of the  electric car service during those hours.  Invitations are out for a banquet on Wednesday evening next, February l!)th, under  the auspices of the Nelson L. O. L>., No.  1G02. The event will be celebrated in Fraternity hall and promises to be an Important one.  also Mr. Johnson, one of the smelter foremen, which was all the evidence taken  yesterday. The case will be resumed In the  court this morning at 11 o'clock.  Married, at the residence of Captf.in Mclennan, "Vernon street, by Rev. Dr.  Wright, Joseph Turner of Kaslo, to Minerva Hembrooff of this city at 2:30 p. m.  Mr. and Mrs. Turner left on the 4 o'clock  train for Kaslo, where they will reside.  The senior hockey team, who had completed arrangements to play at Sandon  yesterday, failed to connect. At the last  moment it wa.s found that some of the  members of the team were unable to .get  away, and the trip was therefore abandoned.  As the ice was in very good condition last  evening a practice game of curling was  played between a couple of scratch rinks,  resulting in a tie. The following composed  the rinks: GwIIIam, Buchanan, F. J. Weir,  Itichardson (skip-, 14; Shaw, McPherson,  Beer, Carrie (skip), 14.  The sitting of the supreme court was  ripened yesterday at the court house before  Mr. Justice Martin. The only case heard  ���:>s that of Frelelgh vs. the Hall  Mining & Smelting Company. The plaintiff  has entered a suit for damages resulting  from an accident while in the defendant's  ���.i'lploy.   The  plaint'!'  was  examined,  and ,  Dr. Rose gave an interesting and Instructive lecture last evening In the.Presbyterian church on the subject of "Germ Life  and its Relation to Infection." The lecture  was given under the auspices of the Florence Crittenden movement, and contained  many startling and Interesting facts.  Tho ladies' hospital aid have arranged  a date with the Cosgrove orchestra, another section of the Cosgrove company,  who are now ln Manitoba for a two hours'  entertainment in the opera house.and a  three hours' dance, with a seven piece orchestra. The date arranged is April 7th,  und will be given in aid of the general hos-  i>ital.  The tenders for the new drill hall and  armory will be opened at Ottawa on the  25th instant. It is not expected that the  alterations suggested by the locnl company  will be made, as the plans and specifications forwarded the local architect are the  same as the original ones submitted by  colonel Holmes.  The St. Thomas Times contains a notice  of the marriage of James E. Hunter of this  city to Miss Bertha L. Sanders, daughter  of R. A. Sanders of Evergreen Farm, Mid-  dlemarch. The newly married couple will  spend a few days in Toronto, after which  they will make their home In Nelson. The  groom is employed on the C. P. R. and is  popular with all the trainmen.  A crown grant was issued yesterday to  John Hull and Fred W. Hazelwood, throe-  sevenths to the former and four-sevenths  to the latter, on the Deer Trail mining  claim. The application for the same was  accompanied by a declaration that G. Adams, Thomas S. Wade, George Hamilton,  William Anderson, Fred Hazelwood and  John Kearns have allowed their freo miner's certificates to expire.

The Cosgrove Merry Makers played before a fair sized house last evening in the  opera house, and rendered a very acceptable program. The musical specialists were  Clarence Johnson, violin and cello player,  and James Stewart Walker, not forgettKig  J. Cosgrove himself, with his musical  glasses, musical bells, guitar, mandolin and  .saxophone selections. The humorous selections were supplied by LaBorde. The applause which greeted each number indicated that the talented Cosgrove company  have not lost their power to please.  The three Nelson delegates, Messrs.  Rutherford, Macdonald and Gillett, who  were in attendance at the Liberal convention in Vancouver last week, have returned  to the city. Mr. Rutherford, in speaking to  a Tribune reporter respecting the convention stated that while the Nelson delegation were to a man opposed to the Martin  ticket they did not bolt the convention as  reported. It was only the East Kootenay  portion of the delegation who left. Mr.  Macdonald when seen was not in a talkative  mood, and declined to say anything until  after their report had been presented, which  would probably be some time next week.  He stated, however, that the report of the  convention as given by the Vancouver  News-Advertiser, and republished in The  Tribune, was a fair statement of tlie affair, and contained all there was to say.  MATOS MAKES A REPORT  The Sinking of the Crispi  WILLEMSTADT, Island of Curacoa,  February 12.���The following report, of the  engagement between - the Libertador and  the Crispo has been obtained: On board the  Libertador, off Cumarebo, Venezuela, February 7.���"We left the vicinity of Curacoa  at 4 o'clock this morning going southward.  We were informed by a cruiser that Venezuelan government warships were off La  Vela de Coro, and were headed south at  full speed. At 2 o'clock in the afternoon we  met the steamer Crispo and she immediately prepared for fight. To our summons to  surrender, which was accompanied by a  =blank^cannon^shot,= the--Crispi-replied=by-  liring on us, to which the Libertador answered by directing the lire of her heavy  guns and rapid liring guns on the Crispi.  The latter kept up liring for a time, but  her shells did not strike us, while ou<:  shells inflicted serious damage on her. After half an hour's lighting the Crispi surrendered unconditionally, the commander  of the Crispi, general Pedro Rivero Su-  tero, and crew, wore transferred on board  the Libertador and tlie Crispi, rendered  useless, was abandoned on the coast, after  her war material had boon removed, and  her guns destroyed. Wo then continued the  cruise.  "When the commander of the Crispi arrived on board the Libertador, wc noticed  that his hat had been pierced by bullets  and we acknowledged that he had fought  valiantly.    (Signed)    Matos."  The signer of the above report is general Manuel A. Matos, the leader of tho  Venezuelan revolution, and commander of  the Libertador.  Woman's Suffrage Convention  WASHINGTON, February 12.���The executive committee of the international Women Suffrage convention met this morning  preliminary to the opening of the convention, to further consider a plan of organization and other (iiiestions of importance.  The committee decided to admit to auxiliary membership tho friends of the equal  rights association. Two propositions, submitted by president Carrie Chapman Catt,  were referred to a committee who ar�� to  report to the full committee on Friday.  The first has for its object the promoting  of equal suffrage stamp, which she said  had been used successfully in France. It  embodies the creating of a women's postage stamp. She points out that the stamp  of France bears a young woman resting  her head on a table which boars the motto  "Rights of Man," while the French women have adopted a reverse of this, and  show a young man with his hand on a  table with the inolto "Rights of Woman."  The proposition was that each suffrage  association shall appoint a state historian  to keep a record of ail facts. Following the  meeting of the executive committee the  delegates from foreign countries gathered  in conference for the purpose of considering the question of the formation of an international suffrage association. The countries represented at this meeting were  England, Australia, Canada, Russia, Turkey, Sweden, Chili, Norway, and Germany.  Miss Susan IS. Anthony was chosen to preside over this session of this body. Miss  VIda Goldstein of Australia being selected  as recording secretary. It wns agreed that  each country should have four representatives at the international conference. A  sub-committee was appointed to consider  and recommend a plan for the establishment of such an organization. The subcommittee will report on Friday.  Favors Chinese Immigration  PORTLAND,  Orego-,   *'ebruary  12.���  The Portland chamber of commerce has ,  triction of Chinese immigration, as proposed in the bills now before congress.  The resolutions set forth that the trade  of Portland with the Chinese empire is  of great and increasing importance,  and for the proper conserving and promotion of this trade it is of the utmost  importance that all facilities of commerce and the courtesy due to a friendly  nation be extended, particularly to that  class of the Chinese empire which operates, controls and has in itseW the  means and power of furthering this  trade.  Taxation of Railways  Assuming Mr. Pettyplece's estimate of  the value of railway property in Ontario  to be correct, his proposal for the more  equitable taxation of railway property  cannot be objected to as unfair, to the  railway corporations. He estimates the  value of the railway property at $500,-  000,000. On this property only about  $300,000 is paid annually in taxes���a rate  of three-fifths of a mill. Farmers are  taxed at the average rate of 4.6 mills.  In other words, farmers pay in taxes  $4.60 on every $1000, while the railway  corporations pay only 60 cents on every  $1000. If the railway corporations paid  at the rate which farmers pay, railway  property would yield a revenue of $2,-  300,000 instead of $300,000 at present.  It would probably be inexpedient,  however, to assess railway property at  as high a rate as agricultural property,  for the corporations would do their utmost to shift the increased burden of  taxation on the public by increased  tolls.  It appears from premier Ross' speech  on Mr. Pettypiece's amendment that the  assessment, commission has in seine degree anticipated his proposal by recommending the appointment of a permanent provincial commission for the assessment of large corporations. He  thought that the assessment "would  then be levied according to the rates of  each municipality upon such proportion  of the railway as may be within the  municipality." We gather from this announcement that the commission will  .recommend that the revenue should be  divided among the municipalities in  proportion to the assessment values.  This would be a fairer plan that that  proposed by Mr. Pettrpiece, which is  that the revenue shall be divided in proportion to population.���Hamilton Herald.  ELM  Hockey Sticks  Boys Sticks;-*.
