 ESABLISHED  1892  TUESDAY MORNING,  FEBRUARY 25  1902  DAILY EDITION  L> ������-  PASSED Of F WELL  ROOSEVELT'S   RECEPTION  TO   HENRY  THE PRINCE IS DELIGHTED WITH  THE FIBST PART OF HIS  WELCOME  BALTIMORE, February 24. ��� The  train bearing prince Henry and his suite  to Washington arrived here at 9 o'clock  and left twenty minutes later. During  his stay the prince was welcomed by  mayor Hayes and an escort of prominent citizens.  WASHINGTON, February 24.���Prince  Henry of Prussia and 'suite, accompanied by the welcoming delegations from  both the president and the German em;  bassy, arrived here at 12:50 o'clock this  morning   promtly   on   schedule   time.  ,     The trip from Baltimore to Washington was without incident.    In the but-.,  lying   districts   of   Baltimore   crowds  gathered to watch the departing train  and at several points from there onward there were little groups at stations  past which the train sped.   No stop was  made until the city was reached.   The  train, which consisted of the cars Columbia/Ohio and Indiana, the first named being the prince's   car,   and   at   the  rear the train was closely guarded by  secret service men with a care that will  be exercised throughout the journey.   '.  Rarely in its history has the White  House been the scene   of a   more   brilliant spectacle than today, when president Roosevelt welcomed to the United  States prince Henry of Prussia.   It has  been the president's wish that, avoiding  all ostentation, the prince be given a  cordial welcome.     So 'far   as   federal  authority .controls the matter, that plan  has been carried out.    The prince" has  met; the president and the welcome lie  received   was7 genuinely  open'  handed,  and  he  in  turn  showed  unmistakable  evidence of the pleasure it gave him to  meet the president of the American people.   Nothing could have been more cordial and ingenuous than the president's  ..,. greeting, to the German, .prince., and it  ���** was returned in kind and in full measure.  Special preparation were made at the  White House for this   event.    All  the  state apartments on the first floor had  received much attention from the government florist, but the decorations of  the three  communicating parlors,  the  blue room where the president and the  prince met and exchanged their greetings, the red parlor occupied by Mrs.  and   Miss   Roosevelt,   and   the   green  room where there were assembled the  members of the cabinet and their ladies,  the wife of secretary Cortelyou and a  few   invited   guests   were   exquisitely  beautiful.   The great east room, where  were conducted the prince's suite, the  German ambassador and staff, the American   officers   and   other   prominent,  guests, were handsomely decorated.  .   WASHINGTON, February 24.���Prince  Henry arrived at the German embassy  shortly after 11 o'clock, the approach of  the party being announced by the shrill  ���notes=of=cavalry-bugles.--Theiprince_oc__  cupied a carriage with admiral Evans,  while back' of them followed the carriages  of the  distinguished  naval  and  military officers of prince Henry's suite  and members of the German embassy.  A battalion of engineers occupied the  avenue immediately  fronting the  embassy.    As the "party came into sight.  .   the band broke into "My Country, 'tis  of Thee."    Over the embassy floated a  flag which has never been seen in Washington before, the personal flag of the  imperial family of Germany. The prince  and his party laid aside their wraps and  the confusion of arrival  gave way to  calm dignity with which affairs about  the prince are conducted.    The entire  flrst   floor   of  the  embassy   had   been  placed at the disposal of the prince and  his personal staff, and soon the drawing room, the smoking room and the  ambassador's study had their groups of  guests and officials.   Prince Henry had  as his private study the Japanese room,  with its rich oriental furnishings and  curios.   The main body of the prince's  staff, after the call at the White House,  proceeded   to the   new   Willard   hotel,  where quarters covering the entire flrst  floor were at their disposal.  Tremendous cheering from the crowds,  at 11:40, announced the coming of the  president to the embassy, to return the  call of prince Henry. The president  drove in an open landau, with colonel  Bingham, his naval aide, and commander Bowles following in a carriage.  "The president and the prince remained together for about ten minutes, being  left alone at first, and later being joined  by the ambassador, when their personal  greetings were completed. There was  no exchange of formal addresses during  the visit, which was strictly one of official etiquette, although it gave opportunity for expressions of mutual cordiality and good will between the two nations.  BERLIN, February 24.���The narratives of the reception of prince Henry,  at New York, cover one and two pages  in today's issue of the principal newspapers. No foreign event has ever been  reported in the German press with  such detail as is the welcome of New  York to the brother of the emperor.  America is seemingly a rediseoverey for  most of these pp**iodicals. judging from  Ihe space given up to elementary discussion on American characteristics.  WASHINGTON,    February    24.���The  dinner given to prince Henry by president Roosevelt at the White House tonight  closed  the  honors  bestowed  on  th? royal visitor by official Washington  today.   The affair was on an elaborate  scale, and brought together a most distinguished company.   It was an assemblage such as has rarely, if ever, gathered in the White House.   To accomodate the large number of guests, the dinner table was set in the east room, the  decorations of which were most mag-  niflclent.   An effective and hew feature  of th,. decorations was the electric light  d'esTi.us and illumination.    In the mirrors and windows, the electric light designs were in stars and anchors, emblematic of prince Henry's duties as a sailor.  Music was furnished by the marine  hand, which played a number of German  and  American  patriotic  airs.    Shortly  before  the   clock  struck  eight,   prince  Henry arrived, with admiral Evans, in  an open carriage.   As they left the embassy, a large crowd gave them a warm  greeting,   and   they   were   accorded   a  hearty reception by the, large number  of people who   had   assembled   around  the White House.    The dinner was set  for eight o'clock, and when that hour  arrived the guests passed through the  blue   room,   where   the   presentations  were made, and thence to the east room.  President Rooseyelt sat "at the head of  the ta*ble, with the prince on his right.  On  his  left was  lord Pauncefote,  the  British ambassador.   On the right of the  prince was count Cassini, the Russian  ambassador, while to  the left  of  lord  Pauncefote   was   the   Mexican   ambassador.   Opposite  to   the   president   sat  secretary Hay, while to his right was  Dr. Von Hollebeh, the German ambassador, and to his right the French ambassador.    To the right of the German  ambassador was the Italian ambassador,  and to the left  of  the  French  ambassador was chief justice Fuller. ���'-  During the dinner the president proposed the health of the German emperor  and the German people, saying:    "We  admire their great past and great present, and we wish them all possible success in the. future.    May the bonds of  friendship between the two people ever  grow stronger."   The president also proposed the health of our guest, in these  words:    "In the name of the American  people I greet and extend to you t>\x%,  warmest welcome and the assurance of  ou;* heartiest good will."                .  '"'��� Following the'toast of the president  to the German emperor, prince Henry  arose and addressed himself to the. president, proposed a toast to himself and  the people of the United States, accompany!*.'-*; it with an. expression of good  will, and hope for the continuation.of  friendly relations between the.German  and "Ainc-r'icari'-iiatibhs-7'- Then 'followed-  Mr. Roosevelt's toast to prince Henry.  Mrs. Rooseyelt   arid   Miss   Roosevelt  were not-present at any portion of the  evening festivities, the company being  limited entirely to gentlemen.  NEW YORK, February 22���The finishing touches on the emperor of Germany's new yacht were given today,  and tonight everything was in readiness  for the launching. The president and  his party, and the prince and his suite,  will reach the island by the Pensylvania  ferry boat Philadephia, under command  of captain Carroll. Directly under the  outer water of the yacht is the bunting  decked stand on which Miss Roosevelt,  prince Henry and president Roosevelt  and two or three others will stand. In  the centre of this little platform is a box  about three feet high. Into this box  there have been led the steel wire ropes  holding the weights to. the beams on  either side of the keel, aad about five  feet aft of the bow, which when released  will cast loose the cradle in which the  'yacht=rests=ahd=in-which-she-wilUglide.  into the water. These.are caught by a  line which Miss Roosevelt will cut with  a specially made sterling silver hatchet.  The cutting of this rope will release  the weights, and the yacht will immediately start down the ways.  The programme for tomorrow after  the launch is to bring the prince to the  Hohenzollern where luncheon will be  served at 1 p. m. He will then be taken  to the battery, where a military escort  will receive him at 3:30p.m., and thence  to the city hall, where he will be presented with the freedom of the city. This  ceremony is set for 4 p.m., the mayor's  dinner will be at C: 30, after which the  prince will attend the opera.  Vancouver's Local Budget  VANCOUVER, February 24.���[Special  to The Tribune.]���Miss Jean Macfie, for  eight years matron of the Vancouver  city hospital, died yesterday at Pittsburg.  Free Masons from all over the province will send representatives here  next month to lay the corner stone of  the Carnegie library.  Blackburn, a boy aged seventeen, who  is charged with stealing, was today  identified as the person who made several holdups two months ago. Blackburn is a nephew of an English judge,  and will inherit fifty thousand dollars  in two years.  In the other hospitals will probably recover.  Rev. William Boardman of Norfolk, Connecticut, who is suffering: from burns about  the face, hands and body, improved somewhat today. The body of the woman at the  morgue was recognized as that of his wife,  Julia.  District attorney Jerome arrived at the  hotel in the morning, accompanied by half  a dozen of his detectives and fire chief  Croker. They examined the burned portion  of the hotel and talked with Mr. Red, the  proprietor. Then the elevator shaft was examined and in the baesment one fire extinguisher was found empty. It was the  one. the chief found in the hotel. One of  the assistants told the visitors there was  no way in which the fire could have gotten  to the elevator shaft without, someone deliberately placing it there. The officials refuse to give an opinion as to the origin of  the hotel fire if they had formed one.  TILLMAN'S BEPLY  SAYS THE PRESIDENT HAS  INSULTED HIM  BLOCKING THE V. V. & E.  HIS INVITATION TO MEET PRINCE  . HENRY AT DINNER WAS  WITHDRAWN  by deserting Mr. Asquith, and enabled  him to dictate terms at the Reform club  conference. Rosebery is now compelled  to challenge sir Henry's authority and  to demonstrate that democratic reforms  are not impossible under a leadership of  an imperialist pier. Rosebery has been  playing since, his Chesterfield speech,  with the pro-Boers on the question of  negotiating with Kruger. His real work,  as all sound politicians admit, ought to  be the conciliation of the progressive  Radicals by proposing measures of social reform and domestic legislation, on  which Liberals can unite when the Boer  war ends.  over the Hand laundry between 1 and 2  o'clock, and the roomers in the adjoining  rcoms heard them Quarreling. Soon after  a shot was fired and when they rushed in  thoy found the . woman dead on the floor  with a bullet hole in her right temple. Malvern was there and his revolver was on the  bed. He went for Mr. McCready, who, of  course found the woman dead. Oflicer Evans, took him in charge and placed him in  the custody of a deputy' in the Magnolia  saloon, where he remained until this morning, when he had him locked up.  Holland Stakes More Laiid  GRAND FORKS, February 24���[Special to The Tribune.]���The Hot-Air  railway company made another move  to block the Vancouver, Victoria and  Eastern on Saturday, when John A.  Manly and' Tracy W. Holland, acting  upon a rumor that the American road,  rather than pay sixty thousand dollars  for right of way across ^Manly's ranch,  would build to the south higher up the  mountain, located a pre emption in Holland's name immediately to. the south of  Mr. Manly's land, and running from it  to the international boundary line.  Chinese Resist Stumpage Charge  GREENWOOD, February 24.���[Special  to The Tribune.]���Two Interesting test  cases are coming before judge Leamy  tomorrow. C. J. Martin, purporting to  represent J. Murray, provincial timber  inspector, has made demands upon  Chinamen selling firewood for the payment of stumpage fees and threatening-  seizure of������ their cofdwood and teams in  . event of their failing to make payment.  The Chinamen have ;,br6ug;ht action to;  test the rightof thergoyernment to collect stumpage on ;wood cut on-mineral  claims. It is significant that both mining companies and private individuals  are protesting against this levying on  .wood and timber cut on mineral claims,  but they left it to the Chinamen to resist payment and bring action to test  the. validity of the impost.  As evidence of the unusual mildness  .of ������- the .season ���v.'<-*itbr,$.:. from Boundary  Falls and Midway state that buttercups  are now blooming in those places.

WASHINGTON, February 24��� The  president has withdrawn his invitation  extended to senator Tillman of South  Carolina tp attend the dinner to be given  tonight in honor of prince Henry of  Prussia at the White House. It is stated that this action on the part of the  president was made necessary from the  fact that .owing to occurrence on the  floor of the senate last Saturday, the  senator from South Carolina was declared in contempt of the senate. Senator Martin, of "Virginia,, a member of  the committee on naval affairs, has accepted ah invitation in Mr. Tillman's  place. The invitation extended originally to Mi. Tillman, owing to the fact  that he is the ranking minority member of the taval affairs committee.  WASHINGTON,; February 24��� Senator Frye, president pro tern of the senate, gave direction, to the clerks: of the  senate today that the names of senators Tillman and.. McLaurin of South  Carolina, must not be called on the roll  cails until further notice. This fixes the  status, of the senators, who are practi-.  cally suspended from all senatorla functions.  WASHINGTON, February 24.���The  following is the letter from the White  House,7 withdrawing Mr. Tillman's - invitation to dine here tonight: White  House, February 24th. The president regrets that he iscompelled to. withdraw  the invitation to you to dine tonight at  the White House. Very truly,. yours,  George R. Cortelyou, secretary to the  president."  Commenting, upon the letter Mr. Tillman says: ''The president, of course,  has the right. to invite any one he  chooses to dine with him officially or  otherwise, and also has the right to  '\>yith^i*aw^suchiiE'-vitatJon...,A,s. Lam not  conscious of having done anything,- personal or official, which gives the president the right to insult, I am surprised at his action. The invitation to  the dinner came to me unsought and  unexpectedly, and so far as the withdrawal is concerned, it is a matter of  absolute indifference to me. It is the  motive behind it which seeks to put meJ  in the condition of unworthiness to meet  the president and his guests, before final  action by the senate. Prince Henry, the  president's guest, comes from a country  where custom makes it obligatory upon  any man who regards himself a gentleman to promptely resent an insult, and  the method is by challenge to a duel.  That was once the custom, but it is now  obsolete in the United States, and we  have been forced as a people here to  cling to the old Anglo-Saxon rule of  considering a lie direct as the first blow,  and no man could hold up his head in  decent society should he, being near  enough to answer the lie with a blow,  not to give it. ;___   "As for my being in contempt of the  senate, which I persume is the excuse  for this insult at the hands of the president, I deny. I have been guilty of a  breach of the rules and the privileges of  the senate. The senate was not sitting  as a court, but as a legislative assembly.  It has the right to expel me if it sees  fit, and I am ready to abide its judgment  and action. It has the right to arrest  me and bold me in custody, until it  makes disposition of my case, but it  has not the right to gag me, and the  president has no right to judge me of  conduct unbecoming a gentleman unless  he believes all his antecedents, which  lead one to believe that he would have  done just as I did, under the circumstances. As to which ono of us is the  gentleman in the matter, in view of the  unsought invitation to dinner at the  House and its indecent withdrawal, I  am willing to abide by the judgment of  all brave and self respecting men."

Martin Starts a Rumpus  VICTORIA, February 24.���There was a  disgraceful scene in the legislature this af-:  ternoon, Richard McBride, leader of the  opposition, Joseph Martin, leader of the  party formerly the opposition, but which  voted with the goyernment last session,  and Smith Curtis, formerly Martin's first-  lieutenant, engaged in what narrowly averted being a fist light. It was over the seat  in ihe house usually alloted to the leader  of the opposition. McBride took it when he  entered the chamber, and when Martin arrived there was a wordy war. McBride held  the seat until the chaplain rose to read  the prayers. The new leader of the opposition rose also,, and Martin slipped Into the  chair. Smith Curtis threw him back and  Martin's followers sprang forward. It came  within an' ace of being a fist fight, but resulted in a war of words, the discussion  lasting all the afternoon. Fnally, by motion, the members were ordered to take"  their old seats, and the house adjourned  till tomorrow.

TO CONTROL THE COLONIST  FIGHTING FOR LEADERSHIP  Split in Liberal Party  LONDON, February 24.���The smoking  room of the house of commons was a  whispering gallery for political recriminations and gossip yesterday. Sir  Henry Campbell-Bannerman's Radical  supporters resented strongly lord Rosebery's letter, and charged him with  breaking up the Liberal party by an outburst of bad temper, after a futile effort  to bring about reunion. Liberal-Unionists held that Campbell-Bannerman is  responsible for Rosebery's abrupt and  unceremonious separation from him, and  deplored the mischievous intrigues of  irreconcilable Radicals. Unionist watched with cynical delight <a renewal of  strife between the Liberal factions, and  assumed that a restoration of harmony  was clearly impossible. The wiser judgment of the disinterested spectator is  that Rosebery has gone too far to retrace his steps, and that he must remain  in tlie field as a successor of Campbell-  Banerman, as an authoritative leader of  tlie Liberal parly. The present crisis  would not have arisen if Rosebery had  taken tho chair at the Asquith dinner,  I and mado a strenuous fight for the  I leadership.   He strengthened sir Henry  To Re-Open Extension Mine  -���"NANAIMO, February 24.���An attempt, it  is reported, is about to be made to open  No. 3 slope, Extension. With the fine  weather only what water is pumped enters  the slope, and leaks through the crevices  of tho rocks near the stoping in the tunnel  further reduces this. It is believed ��� that  about 230 feet perpendicular height of- wafer  is now In the mines, and that probably the  fire is out. The management may adopt a  l<lan of opening the stopings of No. 3  slope at any time and investigate. It is  rumored that this may be done today or tomorrow.

James Dunsmuir, Charles  E. Pooley, Albert G. Sarginson, J. A. Lindsay, and H. Maurice Hills, seeking to, prevent the above named parties from acting  as directors of the company. '  ��� The plaintiffs In the action are'Joan Oliver Dunsmuir and Forbes G. Vernon, who  sue on behalf of themselves as well as all  the other holders, save the individual defendants, of an allotment of 78 preferential  shares in the defendant company. The  plaintiffs'., claim Is "for an Injunction restraining, the defendants, the Hon. James  Dunsmuir, C. E. Pooley, A. G. Sarginson,  J. Ai, Lindsay,, and-H.M.I Hills from acting  or assuming to act as directors of the defendant; company, or using thV seal/ thereof, and from pledging the. company's credit  or in any way dealing with the assets of  the company, or carrying On its affairs,  and that the election of the said defendants  Hon. James Dunsmuir, C. E. Pooley, A.  G. Sarginson, J. A. Lindsay and H. M.  Hills as directors of the said company be  declared to be invalid, and that in the  meantime the said defendants be restrained  from voting as directors at meetings of directors, and from preventing or hindering  thb plaintiff Vernon from acting as a director of or taking part in the management  of the defendant company, or of excluding  him from the meetings of the directors of  the defendant company, and if necessary  that a receive*: be appointed."  Messrs. Tupper, Peters & Griffin are acting for the plaintiffs in the action. Mr.  Griflln this morning applied for an order  giving leave to serve with tbe writ a notice  of motion for an interim injunction restraining the individual defendants from  acting until the trial of the action, which  was granted.  __.An_.affidavit_1has_beenrif^d^^ttmg_^fort__  the grounds on which the injunction Is  claimed; the affidavit is by F. G. Vernon,  who, after setting out the facts as to the  history of the company and Its Incorporation in its present form, as published in  the Times of the ISth instant, goes on to  relate the facts as to the position of the  shareholders. It appears that when the  company was incorporated James Dunsmuir agreed to obtain subscriptions for $50,-  000 worth of stock; he obtained subscriptions for $39,000 worth, and it was then  agreed that further subscriptions should  not be asked for. Ot this .33,00 the plaintiffs  own $25,500, and they claim that they would  not have subscribed for same except on the  understanding that they would have the  right to elect threo directors on the board.  But at the shareholders mooting on the  17th instant, all tho defendants were present, representing Ellis's nnd Sarglnson's  stock, and claimed the right to elect all  five directors, and the board of five directors was elected by them. He further stateB  that one man, formerly In the employ of  the cempany, but who had been discharged,  is now employed at a salary twice as large  as he formerly received, and that a change  has been made In the editorial department  of the paper without the plaintiffs being  consulted, and that the defendants through  J. A. Lindsay, who claims to act as secretary, have given notice of another shareholders meeting for the 26th Instant.  Released  LONDON, February 25.���In a dispatch  dated Salonica, the correspondent of the  Daily Graphic says the brigands escorted  Miss Stone and Mme. Tsilka to the outskirts of a village called Kharddousur, near  Strumitza, and then told them they were  free. M. Garguilo, a dragoman of the American legation at ConBtantinopIc, has  wired the former captives to refrain from  any statement regarding their capture or  detention until they have seen John G. A.  Leishman, the United States minister to  Turkey. ,.-.  Big Batch of Protests  MONTREAL, February 24.���Election  protests are increasing. The Conservatives nave protested the election of Bru-  net, in St. James division of Montreal;  Beith, in West Durham; and Arch  Campbell, in West York. The Liberals  have petitioned against J. E. Leonard,  Laval; Gus Porter, West Hastings; and  H. Avery, Addington.  The most important matter coming before  the city council at its meeting last evening: .  was contained in the announcement of the  mayor, that the Bonningtou Falls* power:  company was pressing its claim for the  site of the city's power plant.' 'The. company has staked a mining claim on the site  and are endeavoring to secure a crown  grant for the same. The mayor informed  the council that he had Instructed E.V.  Bodwell to represent the city's interests  in the transaction, but that he had'heard  nothing from the solicitor. In a previous  communication from Mr. Bodwell he had  been Informed, that nothing,could be:done  in thematter untH it had been takenup by **"  chief commissioner Wells.  Another matter discussed by the: council  was the presenting of a memorial to the  government for an additional grant for  educational purposes. It was argued by alderman Irving, that the government ought  to complete the- erection of the school,  which would'mean an additional $5000.  Alderman Selous was of the opinion that  seme joint action should be taken; by the  towns of the province, and a memorial jpre-  sented carrying out such a request, especially in cases whore cities had been'hit as,    .  hard as Nelson. He claimed that the* costw  of education amounted in the city'of Nelson"  to $-10 -per child, of which the'government  were only  assuming $15.   Alderman ��� Scan-   ' ,>  Ian  suggested; that  by waiting 'until j the  next meeting, of the council they would be  in a better position to ascertain if the government were, going to stand."  .Finally it was agreed, after being moved  by  alderman   Drew   and  Irving,   that   the  matter, should  be  left  to   the mayor and  city  clerk  to  draw  up  a memorial   to  bo  forwarded to  the educational  department,  requesting an*additional grant of $5000.  The mayor announced, his intention ; of  holding, an investigation during" the week,  into the matter of the discharge of fire  chief Lillie last year. After a short discussion It was* agreed that the investMuiIori^  should bo held on.Thursday-afternoon next '*>_  at 3 o'clock.  Tenders for the supply, of drugs were received from a' couple of druggists, but as  .as it was announced that Mr. Teetzel was  in the hospital suffering from typhoid fever  it was.impossible for him to offer a tender,  it was: unanimously agreed to leave the'  opening of the. tenders open until the next  meeting.   .  Tenders had been called for blacksmith,  work, which-hitherto .had been divided  among the .smiths ln.the city. None, were  received, however, and the- work will go  round as before.  A written opinion was received from the  city solicitor, in regard to the liability of  the city in the matter of the payment of  litigation fees in the case of Hall-vs. LaBau. His communication, stated." that the  city was liable owing to the resolution of  the previous council to defend La Bau. He  also advised the council that, lt had power  to protect its officers without having: to  submit the matter to a vote of therate-  Eayers.  A_____s_ibse_[uent_stage_of._the_ proceedings   a  motion  was  introduced   by   two  of  the  aldermen declining to assume any further  liability. The matter was deliberated upon  for some time and the opinion freely expressed that as they had gone so far with  the case there was no  help for them but  to continue it until they either won or lost,  and they could not withdraw from; the case  until it was appealed, when they could be .  relieved   from   further   responsibility.   The   ,  motion was not pressed as it was thought���'*������-  better to seek further light before taking'-  any action.  Additional hydrants were authorized  near the gas house, at the corner of Word  and Silica streets, and at the high school.  Aldermen Scanlan and Drew were appointed members of the hospital board, tho  city enginer and alderman Selous were appointed lire wardens, and a resolution was  moved by alderman Morrison and seconded  hy alderman Scanlan that the mayor and  city enginer be authorized to expend $300  ln improving the bed of Cottonwood creek  before the spring freshets repeat the damage of the previous year,  The  following accounts were authorized  to be paid:  D.    Burgess,    estimate     on    offlce  building     $  10125  Flremens' payroll       367 00  Scavenging department       262 50  Salaries     1,385 00  Sower maintenance       50 25  Water maintenance       43 10  Streets maintenance        54 45  Electric light maintenance        69 00  Total    $2,332 55  A request was made by alderman Drew  that the council should be Informed periodically as to the arrears of taxes, &c,  and the finance c>mnMtt��e who receive  these figures at each of their monthly  meetings,. promised to bring them down  with  their monthly statements.  The salary of the city solicitor was fixed  to commence at the beginning of the year  and  the council adjourned to March 10th. *  Six Persons Killed  SYRACUSE, February 24.���A wreck  is reported at Cayuga, thirty miles from  this city, on the Auburn division of the  New York Central railway.

He was standing in the Ross1-  land saloon when the revolver, wearing a  hole- through his pocket, fell out and exploded by striking on the floor. The bullet  penetrated the trunk of Meek's body. The  injured man's condition is serious.  Mrs. Mary Jane Martin, 69 years old,  committed suicide here this morning by  taking carbolic ��� acid.

The  procedure in Lillie's case has been somewhat out of joint. First he was fired by  the old council, later he was reinstated  by the present council, and on Thursday  he will be given a hearing upon the  charges preferred against him in the  first instance. It may be all right, but  its singular.  In discussing the leadership of the  provincial opposition the Victoria Times  intimates that Richard McBride is just  warming the chair for E. V. Bodwell.

Sullivan -was Counted Out  CHICAGO, February 24.���Terry McGov-  ern's victory over Dave Sullivan is explained by Bob Fitzsimmons, who refereed  tho fight. Fitzsimmons has arrived in Chi-  cngo from Louisville and answered the  question as to whether Sullivan was  counted out, or was disqualified for going  down without being hit. Fitzsimmons  sticks to the claim that he made at the  ringside, that Sullivan was down twelve  seconds and was counted out. Several Chi-  ��� .-iguana who saw the battle, disagreed  with the Cornishman as to the count, but  Fitzsimmons says he was doing all the  counting and ought to know. Fitzsimmons  does not go into details regarding his decision, but simply claims that Sullivan was  counted out and lost for that reason.  Germans Get.

It Is likely that the new general  must be subservient to the minister of  militia, however.  Latest News From Dawson  DAWSON, February 10.���A stampede  is under way at Sroggy creek, a tributary of the lower Stewart. Such is the  news brought here by M. G. McLeod, assistant recorder at Stewart, who arrived  in the city yesterday on a visit.  . "Fully 200 claims," says Mr. McLeod,  "have been staked on the stream, and  more stakers are going there right along.  On my way from Stewart to Dawson I  fftet twenty to twenty-five men boiind for  Sroggy. They were mostly French Canadians.  "Five miles of Sroggy is granted as a  concession and the ground being staked  lies above below the concession. One  hundred and fifty Sroggy claims were  recorded last month. Just what prospects are on the creek, I canot say, but  they certainly seem to be attractive to  those who have been informed.  "Ballarat, above_Stewart, is also promising well and reports of good pay being  struck have been revealed of late.  Shortly before I left word was received  at Stewart, per letter, that as high as 90  cents to the pan bad been found on a  claim there which has been subsisting  since 1898, and is owned by Olaf Johnson. Other encouraging reports have  come from the same stream.  "Stewart River district on the whole  is decidedly awake and forging ahead.  I believe that in time the country will  look to the Stewart for its main production of the yellow metal, and it may  seem a joke, but who can say but what  some day the gold commissioner will  find it necessary to move his headquarters to Stewart.  "Henderson and Ihlstle are being  proven meritorious. Of all the claims  prospected on Henderson and Thistle to  a reasonable extent, not one has so far  proven a blank.  "Henderson has been and is being  prospected the most, and there now are  150 men on the stream either taking  out pay or prospecting. A number of  the claims will next spring yield good  returns. It has been reported that one  claim will produce ?30,000 at the spring  clean-up. This claim is probably No.  3 on Sixty Pup of Henderson. Sixty  Pup property and the claim in blocks  of 40s and 50s on the main creek are  perhaps the best portions of pay ground  so far located on Henderson. The left  fork of Henderson has not yet shown up  as well as other portions of the creek.  "On Sixty Pup where development has  been made to bedrock the paystreak has  been found to be two and a half to four  feet thick, and the pay to run from three  cents to a dollar per pan. The largest  nugget found on the pup was worth  $13.50.  =-��� Duffyr'Brown=and-Danker-have_just.  taken the flrst machinery to Sixty* Pup.  It comprises a 22 horse-power boiler  with other equipment. It will be ready  for work in a week or so.  "On No. 8, Sixty Pup, Banner, the  Stewart hotel man, and some San Fran-  sisco men have found the pay streak and  will instal machinery immediately. On  the 40s the pay has proven to be continuous.  "No. 19 below on Henderson has been  proven to have as high as 18 cents to  the pan and a proper depth for work.  "Thistle is, so far ns prospected, found  to be equally as good as Henderson.  Stampedes are continuous to Stewart  and Thistle and the Stewart Basin will  yet be the main support of this region.  Many creeks of the district are yet un-  prospected.  "Gold has been struck of late at the  mouth of the Mariposa and it is said as  high as .10 to the pan has been found."

In the town of Gold-  field, about a mile and a half north,  Boyes cilice and another assay establishment were.wrecked. Boyce's family  occupied an adjoining room, but escaped without, fatal injuries.  The general impression here this  morning is that the acts are the result  cf a.general movement to rid the district of all li.'gh grade or purchasing in-  stitutior.s. Bloodhounds from Canon  Oily have been called for.  For years then, has been a systematic  stOtiling of rich ore from the mines,  amounting tc thousands of dollars  rnon'.hly. Tt is alleged that more than  fi/i y usisnyers. in. the district have made  a business of buying such ore. Recently  tho Mine Owner's Association discovered that shipments of high' grade ore  had been made by assayers from this  district to smelters at San Francisco  and Salt Lake, but all efforts to stop the  traffic were unavailing.

WAS NO SHORTAGE OF GARS  Fernie Paper Denies the Bumor  The statement, has beeu made in several eastern papers that shipping facilities at Fernie were much hampered by  lack of cars, and that in consequence  the smelting and refining industries in  * British Columbia were impaired to a  very considerable extent.  The statement, too, if allowed to go  uncontradicted, would necessarily contribute to the injury of local shipping  interests. In justice to the Canadian  Pacific railway, inquiry has been made  at the local offices, and the information  * elicited from the officials shows the statement has ho foundation in fact. There  can be and is no doubt that the present  yr-ar has taxed the capacity of every  trunk line in America to keep up with  the enormously increased demands for  , rolling stock. In every great shipping  centre it is well known that many iudus-  ��� tries have heen seriously crippled by  the utter inability of the railways to  ---*"move their output promptly, simply because cars could not be omcnied. At  Pittsbursr, the centre of the great-coal  mining industry, we are credibly informed that, coal shipments were absolutely impracticable for as much as  '������     ten days at a time.  Railway companies can only exercise  human foresight, and there is no company that is not eager for traffic, but  the unprecedented crop of 1901 has put  it beyond the power to handle traffic  as expeditiously as could be desired.  The traffic originating nt this point is  almost entirely coal and lumber, and we  Have been permitted access to car reports for the past several months, and  cannot find in any instance where cars  have not been supplied promptly, and  no delay that could possibly work any  injury to shippers has been in evidence.  Railway companies are always considered fair game to call down the wrath  of man, but we are decidedly of the  ,i*?_ opinion that so far as Fernie is inter-  ' "ested in the transportation problem,  there is no just cause for any serious  complaint.���Fernie Free Press.  LEADERSHIP OF TAMMANY  Nixon is Recognized  - NEW YORK, February 24.���Has the  question been settled at last, the question whether Croker is really out aud  Nixon is really the leader? James J.  Martin, leader of the Tammany organization in the Twenty-seventh district,  has announced that he takes Mr. Croker's retirement in good faith, and is  opposed to Mr. Croker resuming the  leadership. To this Mr. Nixon adds his  official statement, that any one who  challenges Mr. Croker's good faith in retiring challenges   his   good   faith,   and  - that-to=assume^tn'at^he__XM_____5ixqn)  would accept an equivocal position~and  -    fi..,,������t,���.,,i -;- n rpdeet.ion on  wouiu accept, au oiunuu, _.���.,     be a mere figurehead "is a reflection on  himself. No man can come on him, he  says, with orders from another. Now,  this is all very satisfactory, so far as ���  it goes. It proves that Mr. Nixon believes that Mr. Croker has retired iu  good faith, and for good, and that he  himself is actual leader and no figurehead. But right here come in John C.  Sheehan with the story of Croker's re-,  tirement and of his ((Sheehan's) le'idci'-  ship. Singularly enough this stoi'y is  ventilated at tlie very time Mr. Martin  raises and Mr. Nixon answers the question of good faith of Mr. Croker's present retirement. About seven years ago  Mr. Croker got tired of politics, resigned *  as chairman of the Tammany finance  committee, and naming Mr. Sheehan as  his successor, went to Europe. Mr. Sheehan took Mr. Croker at his word; and  actually considered himself the leader  of.Tammany hall. He piloted the organization through the depressing experience of the campaign of 1896, and pre-  . pared it for the municipal campaign of  IS97. Then Mr. Croker returned. Mr.  Sheehan alleges that, as a matter of  coutesy, he invited Mr. Croker to attend a meeting of the finance co**hrnit-  tee, and urged him to speak. Mr. Croker said lie was glad to see old friends  again, and while he was out. of politics  he thought there was every chance for  Tammany to win. This is a different  version of the meeting than that given  by district attorney ."jerome, but then  Mr. Sheehan was present and Mr. Jerome was not. But at the very time Croker made that speech, alleges Mr. Sheehan the other day, "he was the very  head and front of a conspiracy to regain  control of Tammany hall." "That conspiracy," continued Mr. Sheehan, "began to have fruit with my consenting tc  his urging that Van Wyck be nominated.  I didn't discover what a trap 1 had beetled into until ten days after I nominate*"  Van Wyck. I couldn't hack out then  But from the moment I discovered thai  Croker was a cheat and a fraud I opposed him openly in and out of Tammany hall, and 1 have never ceased thai  opposition.' Other men's experience  with Mr. Croker have been different  fiom Mr. Sheehan's. He found him t*  be a "cheat," hut others have found hirr  to be "true as steel" and absolutel*  faithful to his friends. That is what  Mr. Nixon believes of him.

If Mr. Sheehan is right, then  there is a danger that Croker will, in a  year or two, return and attempt to regain control of the organization as he  did in 1897.  RHODES' MEAT CONTRACTS  Will Save Britain Thousands  SOUTHAMPTON, February 24.���The departure of Air. Rhodes for South Africa is  In some way sup-posed to indicate that the  long drawn out Boer war is drawing- to a  close. In spite of this Mr. Rhodes returns  to the Cape with contracts in his pockets  for supplying- the army in South Africa  with fresh meat amounting to several million pounds. This indicates that whatever  may be done in the direction of ending the  war Great Britain contemplates keeping: a  large military establishment in South Africa, on a similar scale to those of India  aud Ireland.  There are whispers around the war office  of plans for offering' large inducements to  veterans who have served in the British  army to settle in the Transval so that in  case of emergency a large reserve force  could be easily accessible.  Mr. Rhodes has formed a company under  the auspices of the De Boers to establish  in South Africa a new cold storage company of large financial resource.  Tho concern is Mr. Rhodes, although he  dees not even appear as a director in it.  The scope of Mr. Rhodes' ideas is not  limited to supplying the military demands,  it being his intention to supply the whole  of British South Africa, including the  Chartered Company's territory, with thoroughly equipped cold storage facilities  whereby fresh meat will no longer be such  expensive luxury. To carry but this plan  a vast fleet of refrigerator vessels will be  employed and extensive contracts made  with the meat trade of Australia and New  Zealand. ,       -,  Mr. Rhodes was given the contract at far  lower prices than had teen paid to the  present monopoly at the Cape, which last  year after paying 7 per cent dividend to its  stockholders cleared ov*er pie million sterling���dividend and bonus amounting to over  100 per cent. This was undtrstood to have  been done principally at th^ government's  expense. The South African Supply & Cold  Storage Company, to which the new venture of Mr. Rhodes is opposed, includes In  Its directorate a majority of jro-Boer sympathizers and their chagrin oi\ discovering  tho name of tho now "lowesj bidder" to  whom the contracts were awaided, is said  to have bon intense. The South African  Collossus seems to have laid lis plans so  consummately that government officials  and all concerned were taken by'surprise.  The decreased cost of maintaining the  army at the Cape; under the.-ne***, contract  will amount to hundreds of thousands of  pounds and will also be a great: boon to  the'people of the various colonies.'  Sir Blundell Maple is said to have had  the active assistance of Cecil Rtiodes in..  pushing inquiries into the remount'scandal  by which.the British government was  swindled out of forty million dollars'out of  an expenditure of ninety .million dollars.  -From^what^'has_transplre(l-lt-appearsI-.:that-  an average of one hundred and sixty dollars was paid for old car horses which: were .  only fit for the bonoyard. Americans are  said to have bon implicated in the frauds  and if the-hands of tha government can be  forced it is likely that the matter will be  presented to the Washington authorities.  The prolongation ot'the war is. said ;to bo  Juo in no small degree lo the useles'sness  of these worse than useless steeds', tho  only horses worth calling by name having  been of English and Irish breed of j'those  obtained from Austro-Hungary. ;  Instead of complaining that the United  States permitted' the c*-*pprt< of horses  which were contraband of war the Boers  should have tendered a vol. of thanks to  their unscrupulous allies and perhaps, un-  inteuilonul friends In the Stales.  JONES TELLS OF THE CRIME  Done at Patrick's Suggestion  NEW YORK, February 21.���The most important development so far in the trial of  Albert T. Patrick, charged with the murder  if millionaire William M. Rice, has- been  the discoveries of Charles F. Jones, who  wns Rice's personal attorney and clerk,  who related the alleged incidents of preparation by Patrick of assignments of Rice's  picpcrty to Patrick, us these events had  'oeen previously stated- by the witness.  Jones and Rico never signed the assignments; when Patrick took the papers from  Rice's apartments they were unsigned, but  when the witness-"next saw them they bore  the name of W. M. Rice. Rice, Jones said  had seen Patrick for the first time in tho  .spring of 1900 and again in the summer of  the same year, but'thero was no conversation betwen the two men on either occasion.. The night before Rice died the witness gave him two powders that hnd been  put up by a druggist in Houston, Texas.  The witness did not know of what they  were conuiosed. :  Early in the week before -Rice's death,  witness said, there was recciH'cd a draft  from Henry Oliver of Houston, Texas, of  $25,000 towards repaying the damage caused  by tho burning of the Merchants and  Planters Oil Company's plant.

I  picked him up ahd laid him on his bed and  he went to sleep. I wrote a telegram and  went out to send it. I telephoned Patrick  and ho met me at the telegraph ollice.  Patrick said it was time to give Rice the  chloroform. Now that the draft had arrived  from Texas and captain Baker was coming,  we should lose all that we had gained if  Mr. Rice was not ])ut away at once. I objected that I had never agreed to do anything of that sort, but Patrick insisted and  I yielded. I made a cone of the towel and  placed it over my own face. I felt the effects and put more chloroform on it and  went to Mr. Rice's room.  "lie was still sleeping. I put the cone  over his face and then ran out of the room.  He was lying just'as I left him. I took tlie  towel off his face and put it in the fire.  It burned. Then I opened all the windows  and telephoned to Patrick.  "Patrick told me to say if all was over  that Mr. Rice 'was very well,' and that was  th.-; message I gave. Patrick said he would  come over, but that he did not want to get  there before Dr. Curry arrived. They  reached the house together. I mot them and  told them 'he is dead. Patrick exclaimed:  'Oh, my God, that is the worst thing that  could have happened to me.' He told me before hand that he intended to say that to  deceive Dr. Curry. The doctor said that ho  wculd need an undertaker, and Patrick  said: 'Yes, and a death certificate.' Dr.  Curry made out the certificate and the undertaker was sent for. Patrick visited tlie  room where Mr. Rice's papers were kept,  and took away with him all the papers he  ci uld find. Patrick talked to me in Dr.  Curry's absence and gave no hint of anything wrong.  0*'00'     V'00'00'00' 0Z0'00'00.00.00  0*  *9$  _p0.  to  9\  9\  to  to  m  9\  to  2***************************************w  - 1S0O-B3TABLIBHBD IN NH)LS0N-19O_  s  Jacob Dover   The Jeweler  Nelson, B.

Noyes, judge of the second division of  the United States district court of Alaska. The charges allege incompetency  and corruption, althought the attorney  general says the charge of dishonesty  was not pressed.  After reviewing the case at length, the  attorney general concludes his report as  follows:     '. '���-    ���  "Such was the trend of this Nome negotiation out of which sprung so much  complaint, bitterness and public scandal.  After review it remains that the actual  consequences of these proceedings in  the Alaska district court were to bring  that confidence in its wise and impartial  administration of justice.  /'In view of the foregoing, and after  tlie most careful consideration, I have  concluded:  "First, that the appointment of a receiver in tho case referred to, without  notice to the defendants and the refusal  upon hearing to discharge the receiver,  and the consequent dispossession of the  "d.feffdants"bf=their*rpropertyrr.v<-erei=not  justified under the facts, the pleadings  and their principles of equity.  ' "Second, that there is no jurisdiction  shown ��� for the refusal by judge Noyes  to settle a bill of exceptions at the instance of the defendants, and for the refusal to allow them to "appeal.  "Third, that after an appeal had been  allowed by the circuit court, of appeals,  and the writ of supersedeas had been  served upon judge Noyes, the plaintiffs  and the receiver, judge Noyo's attitude  toward the writ was one of hostility and  obstruction, which was totally inconsistent with his judicial duty toward a  superior court and toward the litigants  seeking through the court reversal of  his judicial action.  "Fouth, that judge Noyes should  forthwith be removed from office."  The president will approve of these  findings and promptly dismiss judge  Noyes from office.  Students Brutally Beaten  LONDON, February 24.���The St. Petersburg correspondent of the Daily "Express  says that tho police, learned that about j  500 students had arranged a meeting to be  Jield in a certain theater last Friday  ���night, quickly filled the galleries with a  thousand dvorniks. After the performances  vhad ended at midnight the students renin ined in the pit and the dvorniks in the  gtiilories. At 3 o'clock in the morning the.  dvorniks suddenly descended and attacked  the students, beating them with clubs in  a most brutal manner. The students had  arms and ribs broken and some of them  were killed. A large number of them have  been sent to the hospital, while others have  been imprisoned.  Venezuelan Revolt Growing  WILLEMSTADT, February 24.���In  spite of the bulletins of victories over  insurgents published by the Venezuelan  government, advices received here from  Caracas indicate that the revolution is  gaining ground daily. New uprisings  are reported in almost all parts of the  country, notably in the Tachira district,  on the Colombian frontier, and in the  vicinity of Barcelona where the insurgents are concentrated. It was also asserted that general Matos' revolutionary steamer Libertador, having landed  ammunition,   arms  and   reinforcements  at Pedernales, in the gulf of Paria, the  insurgents assembled at Maturin, assumed the offensive and defeated the  government troops at Elpitar, a village  situated fully fifty kilometers from  Karaupano, in the state of Bermudese.  The latter place is said to be threatened  by the insurgents. The report that the  insurgent general Biera had been defeated by the government troops at  Sauca has not been confirmed. The  Venezuelan government continues to  cause numerous arrests,.here and there,  of persons believed to be hostile, with  the result that the population generally  is becoming exasperated.  Nova Scotia's Surplus  HALIFAX, February 24.���The budget  speech of the acting premier, honorable  J. W. Longley, showed the finances of  Nova Scotia to be in splendid condition.  The government was able to close the  year with a surplus of .1303, but if certain sums expended on the new public  works property changeable to capital  account were excluded the real surplus  would be $61,000. The total revenue was  ��1,090,229, the largest single item of  which was $437,72G royalties on coal and  mierals. The net debt of the province  is now  .2,500,000.  Canadian Steel Rails  SAULT STE.

The conversion of pig iron  into steel was witnessed by about 300 people,  most of whom carried* home souvenirs of  the event in the form of pieces of newly  manufactured steel. Just a year ago today-  work was begun on the immense building  of tho company, and uiey are now very  near completion, with the exception of part  of the roofing.

The affair occurred near Orcbyfontein,  near Harrismith, Orange River Colony,  on November 9th, 1901, The small force was  skirmishing when a Boer boy, afterwards  found to be only six years of age, walked  up to private Hughes and, when close up  to him, deliberately shot him in the abdomen with a revolver he had concealed,  the wound proving fatal on November 10th.'

The subscription list for the Canadian  South African Memorial Association is  ���Jimled at the postofllce_ for the purpose of  raising a fund to locate the graves of Canadians who lost their lives ln the South African war and to erect suitable monuments  to'^their memory. The association is under  the patronage of the governor-general, lord  Minto. The local subscription has been  commenced by a $50 donation by postmaster  J. A. Gibson.

They  pleaded not guilty and elected a speedy  trial,  which  will  be arranged  later.  The prisoner John Purcell, also from Fernie, was also up before the judge for election. He pleaded guilty to the charge of  forging a time check for the amount of  $7.50 and was given one month's imprisonment.  Killed by a Child  Tho London Times recently published a  letter from a Dover correspondent which  says: One of the most surprising incidents  of the present war I.s reported in the case  of the death of private H. I-I. Hughes,  whose widow lives at Dover. The details  of the story are vouched for by sergeant  Prui'i*��� t. of prb'at' Hughes' troop, who  has sent full particulars to the war offlce,  and by his comrade, private Morris Elmer-  Financed by Germans  Hitherto railways in Turkey have  been little more than fragmentary samples of the great systems to come. In  the whole empire there are only 3000  miles of railroad, rather more than half  its length being on the Asiatic side of  the Bosphorus,. the advantage being  thus slightly in favor of Asia Minor over:  European Turkey. \   ""*  An immense, revolution is likely to be  brought about in the near east within  the next decade. The shriek of the locomotive will in a few years be heard  echoing over the salt marshes, bituminous plains and magiflcient higher and  more "fertile tracts, which make the vast  Mesopotamia*! plain between the Enph-  rates and Tigris the most curious mosaic  landscape in. the world.  It is startling to think of this coming  raid of the engineers into the cradle of  the world's most ancient civilization.  Abraham's native country is to be invaded by hordes of navvies, and all  along the western bank of the mighty  historic Tigris will gleam the twin steel  riband which will bring the whole  length of the effete empire within the  grip of European influence.  The kaiser has undoubtedly scored.  When in December, 1899, it was announced that the German Anatolian  Railway Company had received a concession from Abdul Hamid for the con-  -stri*ction=of^a^railwayH'rom=Kolieh-=toi  Bagdad, it was generally felt that the  scheme would hang in the air for at  least a generation. But the German  emperor is a model man of business,  who has posed of late as the sultan's  "only friend." He did not for nothing  organize by means of a splendid squad  of his military officers the Turkish army  which crumpled up the Greek legions at  Domoko and everywhere on the Thes-  salian plains. The new trade settles the  affair.  It is a favorite thesis with the people  who ponder over the prophetic mysteries that both Babylon and Nineveh are  to be resuscitated in more than the ancient glories of Nebuchadnezzar and  Sennacherib. Who can tell? It is certain that the kaiser entertains the  dream of founding a magnificient empire in the near east. He is going to  work in the way which is likely to follow up the sermon at Jerusalem by practical results.  Britons need not feel at all envious  of the outlook for the Germans. Look  at the map, and let it be, according to  lord Salisbury's advice, as large a map  as possible. Few people realize the  magnitude of the sultan's Asiatic dominions. They form the most important  section of the earth's surface in connection with the international political situation of the near future. The eastern  question only sleeps, and its slumbers  are very uneasy.  This gigantic railway will be, when  actually constructed . even of greater  consequence than tlie great Siberian  railroad. For it will block the road for  Russia, by which she threatens one  day to intercept our road in India.  Diarbekr, in heart of eastern Armenia,  is the recognized objective of Russia,  as the strategic centre of the near'east.  The new railway will pass south of that  town and will bar the way of the advance into Syria.  Running from Konieh to Bagdad, it  will be a continuation of the Smyrna-  Konieh line, which now terminates at  the beautiful capital of the important  and fruitful vilayet of Konieh, the chief  seat of the famous carpet manufacture.  From Smyrna to Bagdad is a distance of  about 1500 miles, and as the ultimate  aim is to-carry on.the line to Koweyt.  the much discussed town on' the Persian  s;ulf, the whole railway will, from the  London Outfits a Party  Victorians are not the only people at  the present time who have fitted out an  expedition in search of hidden treasure,  as an expedition party is now getting  ready aud will sail shortly from England, bound on a similar errand. But  while Cocos island in the Pacific is the  objective point of the Victorian expedition, the English party's destination is  the island of Trinidad���not the well  known Trinidad of the British West  Indies, but a small, rocky volcanic islet in the South Atlantic, in latitude  20 degrees odd longtitude 29 and a fraction, some 700 miles" east, of the Brazilian state of Esperito Santo.  The organizer of the British expedition is E. F. Knight, the well known  war correspondent, who lost his arm in  the Transvaal, and who amongst other  adventurers nearly lost his life off the  coast of Cuba a few years ago. The  treasure is said to have been deposited  by South American revolutionists on  the island some SO years ago, and consists largely of the loot of Peruvian  churches. Mr. Knight acquired plans of  the island and some 12 years ago went  in search of it at the head of a small  party on the yacht Alifie. On that occasion the treasure hunters were unsuccessful, and they came home the richer  by a. pleasant trip, but unburdened by  bar.s of gold and ingots of silver.  The present expedition will be fitted  out on an elaborate scale. The voyage  will be made in a 600-ton steamer, and  boring apparatus for sinking shafts, an  oif-engine to supply motive power, and  every .scientific--appliance likely to be  useful will be taken. The treasure hunters do not intend to rough it, and included in the party will be a doctor,  while it is expected that some ladies will  accompany the expedition. Mr. Knight  will not go out with the expedition, owing to lack of time, but he is actively  superintending-the preparations.  As to the national ownership of the  island, there is some doubt. In 1700 it  was occupied in the name of England  by the famous.--astronomer, Halley, was  claimed by Bra. II about 100 years .later,,  and in 2895 was once more occupied'by  the British crown, .though it is not be-  lived.tc have.,aiiy. Inhabitants.'  QUEBEC'S DRASTIC MEASURE  Desires Better Terms.  QUEBEC, February 24.���Somewhat of a  sensation has been created here by a notice of motion; given in the legislature by  Mr. Perrault, member for Chambly:  "That in the opinion of this house the  revenues allotted to various provinces by  the British North American Act, are insufficient to allow of their meeting the require  ments of the public service, and at the  same time of giving necessary aid to colonization, to agriculture, to the development  of our industries, and the improvement of  our educational system; that the interpretation given to the various clauses of the  constitution has endangered the existence  of our local institutions, and that the gov-  ernmen of Canada and those of the other  provinces should be invited to join the  government of Quebec in asking the parlia-  iinent-of-=the-Unlted=KIngdom-to-make=such  changes In the Confederation Act, as may  alter the basis on which the federal subsidy  act is calculated; to secure to provinces an  exclusive control over their public properties and over railways within their limits,  to allow of their imposing export duties  on the products of their forests and mines,  and to' confer upon the government of  Great Britain the right of disallowing provincial laws now exercised by. that of  Canada."  There is a current belief here that this  motion is of ministerial inspiration, and  that consequently lt will be adopted by a  majority vote of tho house.  *��____?!_______________*�� '^*^iari^*Ktu^��ti\M\��mvK\t��mTsiii^&^SiSseSS  ��k      ���        <���_  __<_������   an  i_ivmn    j ��� .��� <<nikr ��� .A0�� <x ���   ��� _m<ia���_��^|-    mm  niii<HM��i��i<<i_ ihHi^'lhh. m ^.hj.'-i.  ���_&^*^3_^S'_&.  t&9999  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  H.
