POWER PLANT ABOUT READY  DUNSMUIR GOVERNMENT HAS  MAJORITY ON THE FIRST  ��� DIVISION  VICTORIA, February 20.���The third  session of the ninth parliament of British. Columbia was opened this afternoon  by lieutenant-governor Joli de Lotbin-  iere in the presence of an Immense  crowd of people. It was a beautiful  day, as mild as sprrng, and with a  bright sun to help out the proceedings.  In the absence of speaker Booth, honorable C. B. Pooley was elected to ��� the  chair. Immediately the opposition commenced their light against the government, and a division was forced on a  motion.by the opposition to bTThg o'n  the Victoria bye-election forthwith.  Mr. Houston, of Nelson, moved the adjournment of the debate. On -the division the government was sustained,  having a majority of two, they claim a  majority of four. At the opposition  caucus, Richard McBride, of Westminster, who left the Dunsmuir government a few months ��igo, was elected  leader.  The following was the speech from  the throne:  Mr. speaker, and gentlemen of the  legislative assembly: I have much pleasure in welcoming you to the third session of the ninth parliament of British  Columbia.  Since you last met the province has  been favored with a visit from their  royal highnesses, tho duke an duchess  of Cornwall and York. The warm welcome and royal enthusiasm which everywhere marked their reception demonstrated to them the continued and increasing devotion of his subjects in this  part of the empire to the person of his  majesty, and the very favorable impres-  ���7 sion produced inJ-.li.eir,royal highnesses  "was to me exceedingly gratifying.  I have to inform you that the coronation of his most gracious majesty, king  Edward VII, will take place on the 20th  of June proximo. The premiers of the  several provinces of Canada have been  officially asked to attend, aud it has  been my pleasing duty to convey to his  excellency, on behalf of my flrst minister, an acceptance of the invitation.  It is to be regretted that the war in  South Africa, unavoidably, still continues. There is, however, every indication of hostilities being brought to a  satisfactory conclusion at an early date,  when an opportunity will be afforded to  the citizens of this province, "bearing  arms there, to return to their homes.  In vi'.,w of the unfavorable conditions  which affected the mining -rndasti-r in  l&Oi, it is especially gratifying to know  that the output of the mines considerably exceeded that of any previous  months, and that the year closed with  several detrimental causes removed, and  with prospects of greatly increased ac-  =itivity"and~~develOpmentr        -^"  Negotiations with the authorities at  Ottawa, begun last year, have been  continued by my government, and a conference has been agreed to for the further discussion of matters affecting the  relations of the province of British Col-  umbai and the Dominion of Canada under the terms of union.  A report will be laid before you concerning the results of the commission  to enquire into and adjust where possible, freight rates on agricultural products. It is satisfactory to state, as a  consequence, that substantial reductions have been made, and shipping facilities have been improved. It is also a  matter of very great satisfaction that  the agricultural industry in this province is so prosperous.  To further the interests of the stock  raisers of the interior, a measure will  be submitted providing for the establishment of a system of cold storage, in connection with abbatoirs.  The subject of fishery development is  one which has been receiving greatly  increased attention, and the efforts "of  my government are in the direction of  placing the industry on a more satisfactory footing.  Steps will be taken with a view to the  introduction of a fair measure of redistribution.  Measures will be submitted for your  consideration having for their object  the encouragement of immigration and  the settlement of unoccupied lands.  A measure will also be submitted for  the purpose of consolidating existing  loan acts, and obtaining authority thereunder for the issuance of a new loan.  Under the authority of legislation of  last session, agreements have been entered into with several companies for  the manufacture of pulp and paper, and  negotiations are now being carried on  for the establishment of those industries.  Negotintions are now being carried on  for the purpose of securing the construction of a railroad from Bute inlet to  the Yollrvwhead pass, to connect with  the railway system on Vancouver island,  and for the construction of the Coast-  Kootc-nay railway.  Legislation will be introduced dealing  with taxation and assistance to hospitals.  Estimates of revenue and expenditure  have been carefully prepared with a  view to strictest economy being exer-  Had to Pay for Timber  PHOENIX, February 20.���[Special to The  Tribune.]���All winter long tho work of getting' the power transmission line, between  Cascade and Phoenix, in shape for use ln  the spring has been carried on by a small  force of men, although some delay was necessitated by the non-arrival of the insu-  lo.lors from Germany. These have now arrived and cars containing them have been  delivered at Hartford Junction, Columbia,  fiill'iin's and Cascade. The work of erecting  ihe poles and crossbars was completed  about Christmas time, when the force was  reduced and the balance of the men put  at work putting In tlie bolts and clearing  the right of way in better shape.  In addition to this an enginer has been  busy nearly all winter in going over every  foot of the line for the purpose of measuring and counting every stump On tho right-  of way. It appears that when the right of  way, about 22 miles long, was cut out over  two years ago, the Cascade Water, Power  & Light Company managers thought the  charter held by tho compjany gave them  the right to cut and dispose of the timber  on the mineral claims which were crossed.  This, however, appears to have been an error on their part, and a costly one, too.  Every tree that was cut down will have'to  be paid for, which is the cause of counting  tho stumps by an employee of the company.  Of course owners of claims are not disposed to sell the timber after it has been  cut for any less than they can get, and  as a result they are getting all that they  can. Randolph Stewart of Greenwood, is  attending to the settling of the stumpage  matter, and it si said 1hat he has arranged  to pay for stumps at prices ranging all the  way from 20 cents each up as high as $1.  One claim owner, at least, across a corner  of whose ground the line goes, wanted and  got his full dollar for every tree cut down.  However, nearly or quite all of these  stumpage claims have now been adjusted.  The power house at Cascade has been  completed, and is now ready to receive the  powerful electrical machinery which is being manufactured at Pittsburg, Pennsylvania. The power house is 45 by 215 feet  in size and is a fire-proof structure of stone  and brick, being located at the foot of the.  .falls, some 2000 feet from the head of the  dam. Six large turbine wheels ore being  manufactured of the horizonta type, to furnish the 3000 horse power which will be  generated at the outset. But later it is anticipated that 6000 horse power, will be utilized.  Thus far the company, which is controlled by the London & Xi. C. Goldfields,  has spent nearly $250,000 in the work, and  by tho time it is completed.,it will represent an expenditure of some $400,000. The  cost of power all through the Boundary  will be largely reduced over the expense of  steam production, and will enable the  working of low grade mines at a greater  profit than heretofore. The city of Grand  Forks is already negotiation for power to  light that municipality and it.will be taken  advantage of in the same wa yby the cities  of Greenwood and Phoenix.  celebration of the jubilee is postponed  until March 3rd, when the combined!  festival of the jubilee and coronation  will be observed, today was marked by  the singing of a te deum in St. Peters  and. other observances. The pontiff,  who was the recipient of congratulation from all sides, remarked to. one  well wisher that his jubilee was brightened by the resignation yesterday of  count Giusso, the minister of public'  works, "who left the government rather  than approve Of the divorce bill, which  the church holds hurtful to family morality and concord."  ROME, February 20.���The singing of  the te deum in St. Peters today was the  most impressive service in years. It  was conducted by cardinal Rampoli, in  the presence of twenty-four cardinals  and forty bishops. The pontifical guard  was present in their full dress uniforms,  worn for the first time today since 1870.  Three hundred representatives of Catholic associations, the Italian and foreign  representatives of religious orders, and  twenty thousand spectators, listened to  the services. At the conclusion ofthe  te deum the pope appeared at a window  of his apartments, and watched the  crowd disperse.  COKE MONOPOLY  JAMES  J.

Hill continued his testimony today-,  before the court. examiner in the case  of Peter Power against the Northern  Pacific Railroad Company, involving the  retirement of the preferred stock of the  corporation. Mr. Hill was questioned  closely on the details connected with  the retirement of the preferred stock  and the part taken in it by Morgan &  Company anfl E. H. Harriman. He said  he was unable to give accurate information regarding many details of the transaction.  The plaintiff's attorney went to much  pains to secure from Mr. Hill the information the he had considered the possibility of postponing the'annual meeting of the Northern Pacific until after  January 1st, 1902, in order to keep the  Harriman people from stopping the retirement of the preferred stock.  Of the amount of Great Northern  stock which had been converted into  Northern Securities holdings by Mr.  Hill and his associates, Mr. Hill also  said he was unable to give anywhere  near accurate information. In all He  estimated that about 46,000,000 shares  of Great Northern stock had been turned in.  Mr. Hill would not answer directly:'  the question as to the intention of himself and associates in the Northern Securities Company to secure the majority  of the Great Northern stock. He said  he thought it was the expectation when  the company was formed .that a majority of the Northern Pacific and Great  Northern stock would be turned in, but  but. it was a matter which only the  shareholders could determine.  Mr. Hill contined his testimony before  special examiner Mabey until 3:45 p.m.  He said the securities company was negotiating for stock in the Crow's Nest  Coal Company and for coal fields in  Puget Sound and Rocky mountain regions. The company, he said, had not  thought of disturbing the southern interests governed by Mr. Harriman. The  abandonment of the'Burlington system  extension was not in any way due to  the merger. Extensive improvements  are contemplated, but. no extensions.  He said he did not believe any pool to  buv up stocks had ever been formed.  Charles  S.   Mellen,  nresident of the  Northern Pacific, stated that the Northern Pacific and the Great Northern were  parallel and competing lines.  Adjournment was taken until Friday.

In the speech from the  throne, ho referred to the tranquillztng  effect on the country of the government's  liberal policy, and to the excellent relations existing between Italy and all the  powers. "A policy," said his majesty,  "which bears in mind that all our rights  and all our duties have earned us a large  share of the good will and the flattering  testimonials* of the esteem in which our  country is held by foreign nations. The  confidence which Great Britain and Brazil  placed in me, by selecting me as arbitrator  is very pleasing to me. In the concert of  the great nations, the defence of our interests and fidelity to our alliances and ties  of cordial friendship aro fully reconcilable  with Italy's supreme aim, namely, peace."  Among the bills announced for introduction were measures providing for divorce  and a reduction in the price of salt.  His majesty dwelt at. length on the necessity of social legislation, especially as  regards the working people. Referring to  the proposed divorce bill, his majesty said:  "In the relations of state and church, my  government intends to maintain strictly  the separation of the civil frLm spiritual  authority; to honor the clergy, but to confine them to their own domain, to extend  unrestricted respect to religious liberty dT  conscience, but invincibly to preserve intact the prerogative of civil power and the  rights of national sovereignty."  destroyed tonight by fire.

Manchuria Must Be Open  CHICAGO, February 20.���The Tribune today prints the following cablegram from  .Pekin,^under^-datc--of���February^lOth:���"A  sensation was caused in diplomatic circles  here today when it became known that the  United States, through secretary of state  Hay, has sent a note to the Russian and  Chinese governments following closely  along the lines of tho Anglo-Japanese  treaty of January 30th. The note Is interpreted a.s a distinct warning to both Japan and Russia, that the United States will  not permit tho integrity of the empire to  be molested In favor of ono nation to the  dertiment of another." The note, which  practically endorses the English treaty  with Japan, says:  AVASHINGTON. February 19.���An agreement whereby China gives any corporation  or company exclusive right or privilege of  opening mines, establishing railroads, or  in any other way industrially developing  Manchuria, can but bo viewed with tho  gravest concern, by the government of tho  United States. It constitutes a monopoly  which is a distinct breach of the stipulations of tho treaties concluded between  China and foreign powers and thereby seriously affects the rights of American citizens. It restricts their rightful trade, exposing It to be discriminated against, interfered With, or otherwise jeopardized and  strongly tends to the permanently impairing of China's sovereign rights In this part  of the empire, while it seriously interferes  with her ability to meet her international  obligations. Furthermore, such a concessions on Chinas part would undoubtedly  be followed by demands from other powers  for similar equal extensive advantages  elsewhere in tho Chinese empire, and the  Inevitable result must be the complete  wreck of the policy of absolute equality of  treatment to all nations respecting trade,  navigation and commerce, within the empire's confines.  "On the other hand the attainment by  one power of such exclusive privileges for  the commercial organizations of Its nationality conflicts with the assurances repeatedly conveyed to this government by  the imperial Russian ministry of foreign  affairs of the imperial government's intention to follow the policy of the open  door, as advocated by the government of  the United States and accepted by all the  treaty powers. It Is for these reasons that  the government of the United States now,  as formerly, animated by the slncerest desire of assuring to the whole world the  benefits of full and fair Intercourse between  China and the nations, on a footing of  equal rights and advantages to all, submits  the above to the earnest consideration of  the imperial governments   of   China   and  Greenwood Local News  GREENWOOD, February 20��� [Special  to The Tribune.]���Owing to insufficient  snow, the intention to. haul ore from  the several mining properties in the  vicinity of Carmi or Beaverdell, on the  west fork of Kettle river, has been abandoned after unsuccessful attempts.

There are one  thousand sacks of high grade ore, valued at about $4000, on the Rambler.  The owners intended using the proceeds  of this ore for 'further, development, but  now they \are so discouraged owing to  this absence of transportation facilities,  that they are unwilling to spend more  money until a wagon road is completed.  Other owners are similarly disinclined  to proceed with further development.  Captain J. H. Gilford, of the Hall  mines, arrived an today's train.

The dollar bait  succeeded in a great many cases, and this,  thing was going on for several weeks. The  constable hunted the matter up and finding  that his suspicions were well founded, soon  had them in the bull pen. Their premises  were searched, revealing a stack of letters  and postal orders. They were tried before  tho magistrate, who hearing the case, remanded it for eight days. The case was  again heard on Tuesday last, when the  magistrate withheld hia decision until today.

Before the engagement the  cavalry and infantry had been-posted in  the most dangerous, points, and a field  battery had been located in the plaza,  from which   vantage   point   the   guns  could sweep   the   surrounding   streets.  When the final clash with the troops occurred, the artillery was brought into  action and raked the streets.   The rioters engaged the batteries at close range,  but were finally driven off.   It is reported that   500   persons   were   killed   and  wounded   on   both   sides.     The    near  neighborhood was wrecked by the shells.  The ruins caught fire and this completed the destruction.   Further fighting is  reported at Mataro, 15 miles from Barcelona, where a quantity of arms have  been discovered.    Fi&uung is also reported at Tortosa and Tarragona, respectively 100 and 50 miles southwest of  Barcelona.  MADRID, February 20.���According  ���to telegrams received here late tonight  (from Barcelona, the street fighting continues. The heavy rain which fell during the day helped to disperse the rioters, and the authorities are taking severe measures. A proclamation has been  issued ordering all ��� private individuals  to surrender any weapons they may  possess, under pain of severe penalties.  The sale of arms has also been prohibited. Forty workmens' associations have  been dissolved, and the members of their  committees arrested. The dwellings of  the strike leaders, and of anarchists,  are being registered and put under  guard.  The battleship Pelayo has fleen ordered to Barcelona. The military engineers have assumed control of the street  car service, and a few cars half filled  with soldiers are running. Even the  funeral coaches have to be protected by  the police. No letters have been delivered in Barcelona in three days, and in  some distant parts of the town business  is completely paralized. .  A pitched battle occurred"ln the outskirts of the city between the strikers  and the military escort attached to several wagons that were bringing in provisions. The contents of the wagons  were dragged out, and barricades were  built across the roads. The rails have  been torn up to prevent trains from entering the city.  The strike movement has began to  spread seriously. At Castellene de la  Plana, taking advantage of the night  and-the absence of4he-pollce,athe.strikers=  burned two factories. At a workmens'  meeting held at Castellene de la Plana,  a general strike was voted. At Sara-  gossa most of the factories have already-  closed doAvn, and most of the working-  men strikers are bringing pressure to  bear to compel the factories still remaining open to close their doors. The captain general of Saragossa has wired for  reinforcements.  A strfke commenced at Valencia, but  owing to the refusal of the dock laborers  to participate, it did not become general.  The police at Valencia assisted by the  troops, have up to the present time been  able to maintain order there.  MADRID, February 20.���Premier Sagas-  ta Is preparing a decree establishing martial  law throughout Spain. The signature of tho  decree, It is believed, will be followed by  an extreme national crisis. It was persistently said when the chamber of deputles  closed this evening that the minister of  war, general Weyler, had a long conference  with the military authorities today. Afterwards, it was added, arms and ball cartridges were served out to the troops in  Madrid, who aro In readiness to start at  a moment's notice.  CERBERE, February 20.���At C p.m. serious fighting is proceeding in all parts of  Barcelonia. A number of persons have already been killed. Troops are arriving  rapidly at Barcelonia from all tho other  districts. The outbreak today between the  strikers and troops began at Baraldo, Cas-  altere and Rambla streets, where many  shots were exchanged. A general panic prevails at Barcelonia.  BARCELONIA, February 20.���The strikers murdered threo workmen today who  wished to resume work. The proprietor of  a bakery who raised the price of bread was  also killed. It is hourly growing more apparent that anarchists are the prime movers in the incipient revolution. The markets are without provisions and the strikers are preventing the slaughter of animals. Additional reinforcements of troops  are arriving here. A mob stormed the arsenal al Sabadella, not far from Barcelonia, and secured forty rifles. Tho weapons  were subsequently recovered by the troops.  Fresh lighting between tho troops and rioters lias occurred at Tarrasa and Sabadell.  Most of the ships in this harbor have been  forced to leavo without discharging their  cargoes.  PERPIGNAN, France, February 20.���The  wealthier families of Barcelonia are coming  here in large numbers to escape the terrors?  of tho Catalonian capital. fim Misotf toBtiNfe: Friday Motmsra, abbot At*t iu tsbi  yr. i  j i  '���('  If!  f$"  i  If te  IU  If  (I  ��� IS J -" ���  sir  Ii  i  Is??:  Is  ��  $3$  II  1  it  Nf;  I!

On Saturday next, subscribers  whose Tribunes are delivered by  carrier will be expected to pay  the carrier TWENTY CENTS, the  subscription price fo% the current  week.  The men who are fighting James J.  Kill's consolidation schemes in the  state of Minnesota have much difficulty  in getting information out of the great  railway manipulator, but they succeeded J  on Tuesday last in pumping some news  out of him which has a peculiar interest  for the people of British Columbia at,  the present time. At the time Mr. Hill  was under cross-examination as to the  intention of the Northern Securities  Company, with respect to the control of  thf Great "No-.'thern and Northern 'Pacific railway systems. As will be seen  from the report of the examination,  ^which appears Jn another column, Mr.  States; and, if it can possibly be managed, the hauling of the British Columbia ore over there as well, for the business which its moving offers, and the  building up of industries tributary to its  railway systems. The people of southern British Columbia can say whether  this ��� prospect is pleasing to them;  whether it conforms to their idea of conditions favorable to home smelting and  mining development; and finally  whether the time has not arrived for  the federal government to give some  assurance that they will be speedily relieved from a monopoly which threatens the welfare of every industrial and  commercial enterprise in southern British Columbia.  Hill professed his inability to throw  very much light upon the matter. He  said it was the expectation of the organizers of the Northern Securities;  Company that the bulk of the stock of  both American railways would be turned in, but this was a matter very much  in the hands of the shareholders. But  there was one scheme of the Northern  Securities Company of which Mr. Hill,  for obvious reasons, considered himself  free to speak of. He said the GREAT-  TRUST WAS NEGOTIATING FOR THE  STOCK OF THE CROW'S NEST COAL  COMPANY.  This disclosure comes at an opportune  time.   It may explain the statements appearing  in  the eastern papers  to the  effect that James J. Hill does not hold  the controlling interest in the  Crow's  Nest Coal  Company,    lt may be that  already the arrangements for transfer  of the  stock  of  the  company  to  the  Northern Securities Company are under  way.    Startling/however, as the naked  truth may be, the transfer of the stock  of the Crow's Nest Coal Company can  effect very little change in the policy of  the management of the East Kootenay  company.    It will result in the shaking  off of idle   pretence,   that   is  all.    For  months past the coal mines and coking  plant of the company have been operated with a view to furnishing the utmost possible business for the railway  interests of the trust of which the coal  company itself is soon to form a part.  The formal transfer will have one great  advantage  in  that there  will  be room  for no more pretensions.    The Crow's  Nest Coal   Company will  be an alien  concern, with alien interests only, and  even  its inspired organs will scarcely  have the hardihood to contend that the  Northern Securities Company will not  operate its property in a manner calculated to produce the best business re-  spits.   The new company's interests will  manifestly lie in the hauling of Crow's  Nest coal and coke over its'own lines of  railway, to smelting points in the United  There is nothing in the speech from  the throne, which marked the opening  of the provincial legislature yesterday,  for which the people of the province  have not been prepared.    In fact the  only definite statement in the document  is that there will be a measure of redistribution submitted.   There is a reference of course to railway negotiations,  hut these have not as. yet taken defin-'  ite shape, and may be materially affected  by the present conflict between the pro-;  'vihcial and Dominion authorities as to;  the measure'of control to be exercised  by the province over sections of systems which it may ass^i.'but which ultimately become portions ot railways operating under federal charters.    There  is also a reference to legislation bearing'  |.ipon .taxation, but it is too indefinite  to convey any information other than'  that some legislation of the kind will  be submitted to  the members of the:  house for their consideration.   There is  every   Indication,   however,   that   the  session will be a lively one.    The fun,  commenced Yesterday, when the( opposition forced a division upon a motion  calling upon the government to bring  the Victoria bye-election  on  at onoe.:  The motion was defeated by a narrow  B^j6Tity^of"tw6ivdtesrbut-'the!!press-re-'-  ports do not  say whether  there  were.  more than two absentees when the division was taken.  If the retirement of Charles H. Lug-  rin, as managing editor of the Colonist,1  should result in the return of W. H.;  Ellis to the chair he filled for so manyj  years, the Colonist would lose nothing  by the change. Mr. Ellis may not know  so much about constitutional issues as  some of the journalists of the province,  but he knows how to make a paper in-!  teresting, which counts more in the end'  The Colonist was at its best under the|  management of Mr. Ellis and it is not  too late to make the Colonist both interesting and influential.

TJBing Wireless Telegraphy  LONDON, February 20.���At a general  meeting of the Marconi Wireless Telegraphy Company today, Marconi, who  was present, referring to his trans-Atlantic experiments, announced that the  next series of tests would include the  transmission of words and messages.  He added that there was nothing to prevent the company from undertaking  :commercial communication with ships  at sea. The system at present was in  permanent use on board seventy untps  and there- were twenty-five land stations. His transmission of twenty-two  words in a minute did not compare  badly with the work of the' cables. The  defects with refence to secrecy had been  removed. After perfecting arrangements in Canada he would challenege  sir William Preece and prefessor Lodge  to intercept messages-. The monopoly,  claimed by the British Postal Telegraph,  had hitherito impeded the establishment  of a wireless service, in England and  Ireland. Marconi" sails for Canada  February 22nd.  Marconi complained that obstructions  were thrown in his way on this side of  the Atlantic, which was in marked contrast with the generous encouragement  which he had received from the government and press of the United States  and Canada.  In regard to the commercial side of  the system, Marconi said that on the  recent arrival of an American liner upward of 8000 words were received "within  sixteen hours. The transmission of this  number daily across the Atlantic would  represent an annual income of ��73,000  for each pair of stations, and the com-'  pany in the first instance was proceeding to install pairs of stations.  British Empire T,e**gtie  OTTAWA, February 20.���The annual  meeting of the British Empire league  was held in the parliament buildings  this morning. Lieutenant colonel George  T. Denison presiding. There was a  large attendance of members of parliament. The executive of the league recommends the accomplishment of a fast-  Atlantic steamship service, a government owned cable across the Atlantic,  a naval reserve for Canada and that  newspapers and perioicals be permitted  to pass between Canada and Great Britain at minimum rates. The president  said that it was the duty of Britons the  world over to do all they could to  strengthen=-the^empir_e^ai^_ijuxgjdi.Jhe=  necessity of protecting the food supply"  of the mother country by a duty on all  food stuffs coming from foreign nations.  Honorable I. J. Tarte spoke of the  loyalty of the French Canadians to the  British empire. He expressed a hope  that the coming conference in London  would tend to further promote those imperial colonial interests which are of  vital importance to every branch of the  empire.  Honorable George E. Foster showed  the importance of a better arrangement  regarding cheaper postage of Canadian  and British newspapers and periodicals.  All the old officers of the league were  re-clocted.

MEN WHOM BRITAIN LENDS          o  What They Have Accomplished  It is a lucky thing for any country to  have British interests wrapped up iu her  when she happens to be in trouble. She  has only to apply to the British government, whicli strokes its chin, and says:  "Well, we"ll lend you a man who will  put. it right for you; but you must send  him back undamaged." During the  past twenty years Britain nas audited  the books and drilled the armies ol* over  a dozen nations.  Two years and a half ago Japan got  her accounts in such a muddle that she  had to borrow one of queen Victoria's  servants to help her. Over ��800,000  went wrong through the embezzlements  of a minister���who afterwards killed  himself���and another ��1,000,000 per  year was lost through a flaw in the  customs.  The Japanese government, after worrying its hair grey over the matter sent  a messenger to Britain to ask for the  loan of a business man who could set.  matters right, and Britain sent them the  famous accountant, John Dymock��� Murray. The Japanese had reckoned it a  twelve months' job, but Murray in six  weeks brought seven defaulters to book,  revised the whole tax system, organized  the police, and added permanently ��1,-  000,000 to the country's yearly income.  In gratitude the Japanese sent him back  with a present of ��10,000, four medals,  a degree of honor, ana a Japanese peerage.   -  King Chulalonkorn of Siam would  have had a good .many bad times had he  not been able to persuade Britain to let  him borrow a man or two. Besides business matters, you cannot beat Britain  for policemen, and Chulalongkorn borrowed from our government a solitary  man,.,who quashed a whole hostile nation for the king���the wandering tribe  of Mekon Decoits, numbering over 200,-  000. These gentry, who were robbers by  profession, made it so not for Siam that  the king lost a full half of his revenue,  and many hundreds of his subjects were  killed or captured yearly..  The Mekon people managed to grab  what was estimated at a clear ��1,000,000  worth of property in live stock and  other treasures per year, and the poor  king got so hard up that he could not  afford to keep up his court. He pleaded  to the British government, and they  lent him the veteran administrator of  the Anglo-Chinese irregular troops,  Anthony Woburn-Shaw. Shaw recruited  a force of 5000 native policemen without  a single Englishman to help him, and  in eighteen months, with the loss of  only a dozen lives, he completely eradicated the cheerful footpads who were  doing the mischief. He disarmed them,  punished them, and then gave them  land, persuaded them to settle down  and farm peaceably. That robber tribe  is now the most industrious class of  Siam, and Shaw received a gift of ��12,-  000, and returned to England quietly,  6"nly^t^di^e^f"a7pdisbhed"handriI  The khedive of Egypt owes the existence of one .of the best black armies in  the world to a handful of plain non-  coms, which Britain had lent him for  a time���drill-sergeants from our regiments of tlie line. Up to that time the  "Pallaheen" troops used to run like  hares whenever the Soudanese or any  other enemy showed their faces. These  men, who had never stood up squarely,  to a foe, were taken in hand by one -or  two hard-working British Tommies,  who hnd got thoir stripes, and patiently,  laboriously, without the aid of any general or instructor, drilled them into  first-class rifle shots, smart soldiers,  nnd sound, steady men under fire. When  tho next row came those black troops  did honor to that handful of drill-ser-  gennts by proving themselves the stead- I  iest and best of all the native troops,  and lord Kitchener found them indispensable. The sergeants became troop-  majors, and went quickly back to their  depots.  Pour years ago the United States  thought it wasn't any business of oursi  to lend Mexico a scientist to cope with:  the yellow fever plague, fancying that;  if we got our finger in we might go too,  far. America made herself rather unpleasant about it; but Mexico, which  owes, us a great-deal of money, was losing 50,000 men a year through the fever,  and asked us if we could let her borrow  an official bacteriologist and physician,  to see what he could do for the country.  So Britain, who is never backward in  these matters, lent Mexico sir Aleu  Stavely, the famous vaccinationist, and  sanitary expert. The first thing he did  was to catch the fever himself, which  he declared to be the best thing that  could havo happened, and. after getting  rid of it. he set to work and traced the  fearful disease to its root. He had a  score of towns reorganized sanitarily,  got the government of Mexico to make  n ��10.000 grant for medicines and disinfectants, organized the present stall  of medical mon in the country, and  turned the whole of the shipping regulations and quarantine���which was the  root of the matter���upside down. He  cured over 3000 babies of the disease,  besides nnmbereless othnr people, mostly against their will, nnd he reduced the  fever casiviH.ic--.' by 55 per cent per annum. This took two years of solid, hard  work, and his reward was a great one.  "He is even now in the temporary-service  SAVINGS BANK DEPARTMENT:  Interest allowed on deposits.

He is succeeding,  too, hand over fist.  , Portugal- had so muCh trouble with  her merchant service steamers eight  years ago that she had to come to us.-  Portugal, among other things, cannot  turn out men who can manage engines  of any kind, mainly because they are|  not sufficiently "keen," and da not keep  them clean. Two-thirds of the merchant  steamers' were practically at a-standstill, and the Portugese government, in  despair, turned to its old friend, England, .for help." We ����nt Portugal for  twelve months chief engineer Ballie-  Coulson, who started in that country  a government engineers' college for  merchantmen, and now the graduates  of that institution keep Portugal's  steamers going strong. Two-thirds of  that nation's marine engineers studied  under the keen eye of Ballie-Coulson,  the other third are sound "Geordie" engineers from northern England. And  Portugal has no more trouble with her  engines. Most of her railroads, too, are  engineered  by British-taught men.  Britain has got rather tired of lending  men to Turkey, who would borrow the  whole cabinet and privy council if we  would let her have them; but she drew  a prize when the British government  allowed her to borrow Barton Evans,  to whose work the. whole of Turkey's  present customs and revenue are due.  Once Turkey pawned here customs to  us for a period, and they were less valuable then; but the untiring work of  one man has reduced peculation as much  as it could ever be reduced under Turkey's system of officialdom, and the  sultan owes the increase of ��500,000 a  year to his income solely to his luck.in  being able to borrow Evans for the short  space of two years.  THE DIPLOMACY OF FANNY  Tale of Jilted Lover  Soon after I.camo into my great fortune  I became engaged to Marion.  When X received Marion's cruel letter,  returning my ring, I went to see my cousin  Fanny. At that time I thought Fanny  clever in mutters requiring tact. I will tell  you how I discovered that sho had no head  at all for such delicate matters.  "Well," she said, after I had explained,  "what do you propose to do?"  1 told her that I desired her assistance,  reminding her that she had frequently  promised me the benelit of her feminine  intuition should I ever need counsel on  matters pertaining to the heart. This, 1  hinted was an affair that needed all a woman's skill of handling.  "Did she send you your ring back," asked  Fanny.  I took it from my vest pocket in answer  and placed it upon the table. She took it  up and blushed, no doubt at the slighting-  way in which Marion had treated me.  '"She is very proud," I said dejectedly.  "You know, Fan, what a splendid creature  she is, and how the men all adore her."  ���'Fanny-bent"down=to,=-examlne���the=-ringr"  not before I had caught a glimpse of her  face, and I saw she didn't quite like Marion  being praised.  "She's a fair iceberg," I sighed. "I'm  afraid, Fan, she'll want a lot of melting."  "Let mo see her letter, stupid," said Fan  sharply.  Tho privilege of cousins are historical. I  handed her tlie letter.  "You see," 1 said, sitting on the sofa beside her, "she is bitterly angry about that:  night at the Drummond's ball."  "Ves," said Fanny, softly.  "And what about those many dances I  had with you Fan?"  "Dear Marion is very nice," she said with  generous candor; "but she can be almost  maliciously jealous." "  "Jealous women," I said, "make "  "You are right," said Fan, "they make  very bad wives. You have very deep intuition, .Tack, in such things."  She bent down so very quickly to pat her  beastly little spaniel that I failed to get a  glimpse of her face that time. I believe she  knows about my gift.  "I think," I said, "she should not have  acted in such a "  "Contemptuous," suggested Fanny.  "Well, yes, in such a contemptuous way..  Wo are cousins, and there wns no harm."  "Of course," sho said airily, "you will  explain to her that you offered mo those  dances?"  I did not remember offering them.  "Because," she resumed, "though Marion.  Is by no means a bad sort of a girl, she is  al times disposed to say venomous things."  T promised to explain.  "It was really very jolly," said Fan, retrospectively.  "And;" t said, "you looked so very  charmlng, Fan!"  "That's just Bobby Griflln's word. By the  way, he promised to send mc a ticket for  the opera."

"Fan," I said severely, "if you intent to  treat my trouble with levity I will go."  "You dear boy," she said, looking mo in  the face���and T could road repentance in  hor's then, and no mistake���"as if T could  treat such a matter with���with contempt."

Fortunately Fan did not notice  it.  "YVe have known each other long," I  mused.  "We went to school together, Jack."  I confessed to lt.  "Do you recollect," she said, fingering a  button on my coat, "that day when I  sprained my ankle and you carried me  home?"  I had a vague recollection. Just then I  noticed that we setting absurdly far apart.  "I think," I said, -"that we vowed to love  each other "  "As brother and sister, Jack."  "And in this awkward estrangement," I  said, meaning mine and Marion's, "what  would you advise me to do?"  "You must answer her letter," she said  in frigid tones.  "How?" I inquired.  "The idea. Do you think I would consent  to word your letter? Any but a stupid man  would know that he had to but say that  he regretted he had been led away for the  moment!"  "Exactly," I said.  "And that ho trusted that she would not  take seriously such a trifling breach in his  allegiance to her."  '���'Of course," I said. I was beginning to  lose faith in my cousin Fan; she left a fellow to do the thing pretty much on his  lonesome.  Fan took up the ring, toying with it.  "Very well," she said thoughtfully; "so  that's settled, Jack. Of course," she resumed, still toying with the ring, which she  had absently slipped on her finger, "she  may.not forgive you."  "We must hope for the best," T said.  ''On the other hand," murmured Fan,  "she may."  She clasped her hands behind her head  and looked at me through her long black  eye lashes. Fan is an immensely pretty  S'rl. V  "It is possible," I admitted.  "Still, ' mused Fan, "as you say, Jack,  we must hope for the best."  "f think," she said after a slight pause,  "I had better get her to come and see me  here before you write."  "If you only would," I said. I was beginning to have hopes of her.  "And prepare the way."  "Decidedly," I said. "But bo careful, Fan,  she is proud, you know."  "1 will bo very careful," she said, very  thoughtfully. "I will see her tomorrow and  you will write to her tomorrow night."  Three evenings afterwards I called on my  cousin again.  "Well," she cried, "has she���has she "  Fan stood up with a white face. I knew  that my being.jilted in such a way would  aneer her.  "What?" she gasped. "Can't you speak  plainly, you idiot? Has she done It?"  "She has," I said calmly.  ��� "i.-'or ever?"  "And ever," I said.  Cousin Fanny sat down and laughed���a  little hysterically, I feared. She" looked  charmine.  "Don't take on so. Fan," I said, "I can  bear it. I am sure you done your best."  "What did Marion say?" she asked.  1- -'Sher-r- But it's  qf_ no consequence,"  I.  said.  "Cousin Jack, let me light you a cigarette. I don't mind the smoke, you know.  What did Marion say?"  "Well, she said that a fellow that could  write such a letter to a girl  must be   Oh,  hang it!"  "Isn't it a good ono?" inquired Fan.  "There are some good cigars in the cabinet   Let me get one. Must be what?"  "Either a perfect cad or a perfect fool."  "Such a coarse way of putting things,"  murmured Fan.  "Aud," I resumed, "sho led me to understand, that she did not intend to enter into  matrimony with one or the other, even  though ho were as rich as a Rothschild."  "She i.s so very particular," purred Fan.  "What else, Jack?"  "It was about the ring," I said glumly.  "You see I forgot to take it when I left  you  tho other night."  "Oh, I quito forgot," she gasped. "Here  it ia."  I put it in my pocket.  "What did she say about that?" Fan  asked.  "I will not tell you, Fan, what she said  about that!" I said decidedly.  "I saw it lying on the mantlepiece," she  said, looking out of tho corner of her eye  at me, "and slipped it on just to see tho  diamonds sparkle. Then someone rang the  bell; it was Marion; and in tlio hurry I ���"  "Just so," I interrupted, "you forgot."  "And did she dare '  "She did,"  I said.  "Poor boy," murmured Fan. "And you  stammered and were confused."  "I did���was," I said.  "As if you had really given me the ring!  The idea!"  Fan came and sat beside me. She was  beautifully dressed; it must have cost a  heap of money.  "You won't take to���to drink, Jack, or  anything dreadful?"  T assured her it was not my intention.  'You see," she said tenderly, "I should  not like to think anyone was unhappy just:  now."  "Why?" I asked.  "Because, Jack, T think I shall soon be  happy myself, you know."  I think I went very white.  "Fan," I said very authoritatively,  "where are you going tonight?"  "T?" she said. "Oh, I'm going to the  oiiera."  "With that artist puppy," T said very  sternly.  m  ^���******************************************************************iiA  m 189Q-B8TABLISHBD IN KH1L80N-1902 il*  to  to  to  9*  9)  q\  to  r  0- * ~    0**0- 0,,   *,, ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ _.^  to  to  9\  9}  to  to  9\  tfx  to  to  to  to  m  Jacob Dover   The Jeweler* Nelson, B.

P.R .telegraph  oflice, is in receipt of a letter from his  brother who is now in South Africa, who  was wounded in an encounter with the  lioers. He is at present in the hospital. He  verifies the reports which have been in circulation relative to the splitting up of the  Canadian troops. Amongst other matters  ho says, "Our troops wore split up, a.s thoy  claimed there were too many wild Canadians together. The troop was disbanded  and four or five of us were sent to each  of the neighboring regiments. I am with  No. 12. Since we were disbanded we have  had a pretty warm time, and havo had live  fights in two weeks, and I was in them all.  T had my horse shot in tlie flank, but he  carried me out all right. In the last one I  wa.s wounded in tho right knee. It was  only a slight wound and occurred the day  after Christmas, nnd was just a little  Christmas box from the Boers I am In the  hospital now. Tlie leg Is a bit stiff, but  I am not suffering anything now. I expect  that I shall be back again to the troops  long before you receive this letter, /flic  Boers are getting quite active, but it will  only last during tlie summer, as the British are making quite a number of captures  right along. Is there any truth in the report that the Dominion government are recalling the South African Constabulary at  tho end of the year? We heard that rumor  out here, but I am afraid that it is too  good to be true."  LOVE'S BODY IS RECOVERED  'Fouud Off the City "Wharf  The mystery surrounding the disappearance of H. V. Love, who was last seen on  December ISth, has been solved, and the  fears entertained as to his fate have been  confirmed by tlie finding of his body in the  hike In the vicinity of the city wharf. Yesterday while the teamsters were waiting  for the arrival of tlie Kaslo boat, one of  them remarked on what seemed to be the  body of a man floating on tlie surface of  the water. W. J. Astley was called upon.  Ho immediately launched a boat and with  some assistance succeeded In landing the  bedy in the boat, which was removed to  McArthur's  undertaking  parlors.  Dr. Forin of Slocan City, as provincial  coroner, was communicated with by wire,  He arrived in the city last evening, and  held an inquest.  From the evidence of the chief of police,  who was the principal witness, it appears  that the deceased Love was last seen on  the date above mentioned. On the 14th day  of November1 he applied to the city police  for the privilege of sleeping in the lockup. He was given the necessary, permission  and was also given odd jobs around the  city offices, which provided him with  enough to supply his actual necessities,  besides being assisted In the matter o��  clothing.  When the body was found it revealed no  evidence of violence, and in the pockets of  the clothing were a number of calling cards  bearing the name of H. V. Love.  The deceased was a man of about sixty  years of age, arid was well known in the  city, having resided here for the last two  years. lie was a man who had seen better  days, was a fine .penman and an excellent  bookkeeper, having at one time been cm-  ployed at tho Arlington mine. It is also  stated by some who were more Intimate  with the man that he had been in a stock  exchange business at one time in New  lYork.  Tho verdict of the coroner's jury was that  the deceased had met his death by drowning, but whether by accident or with suicidal intent was not known.  Some Petty Thieving  The city police had a busy round-up of  law breakers yesterday. About 12 o'clock  a ccuple of fellows by the name of Daniel  and Peter Brewster were arrested on the  charge of stealing a coat from the Grand  Central ' hotel. When the property was  missed the police were communicated with,  and ten minutes afterwards the accused  were arrested, having tho stolen property  in their possession.  The other was that of a man of the name  of Jenkins, who was arrested on the charge  of stealing a couple of coats and some  other property from the Kootenay hotel.  Immediately the information was laid police constable' Heavener took out a search  warrant, and securing the use of a hand  car proceeded to Granite Siding in search  of a man of the name of Lewis. He returned last evening, having Lewis and the  missing property.  . Supreme Court Cases  .The sittings of .the. supreme court were  resumed yesterday morning before Mr." Justice Martin, when the case of Paulson vs.  Ueeman was opened. It was not proceeded  with, however, as the plaintiff was not  ready to rro on. An adjournment was  granted with costs to the defendant in any  event.  The only remaining case to come before  the supreme court is the one of Coulter vs.  Lynch, which is a dispute in regard to  some land. The case was partly heard when  tho court rose at 5 o'clock last evening,  and will be resumed today at the usual  hour. R. W. Hannington and P. E. Wilson  are appearing for the plaintiff and W. A.  Macdonald, K. C, and li. A. Crease for the  defendant. It is expected that the case will  be concluded today, at the close of which  Mr. Justice Martin will leave for Rossland.
