A special informal meeting of the city
council was hastily called for last night
as it. II. Zavitz, western manager of the
Allis-Chalmers-Itullock company, who
has been examining the city's power
plant, intimated to the mayor that lie
had a report lo present. Mr. Zavitz'
theory is that the friction which causes
the extreme Irregularity in lhe service
of light and power is due to defects in
ihe gates. These he wishes to repair.
admitting thai the repairs may take
from a tortnight lo a mouth, and lhat
for that period the service must be discontinued and the plant closed down.
No aciion waa taken last night. Another meeting will be held tonight at
which City Solicitor W. A. Macdonald.
K. C. will be present to advise tlie
Mayor Gillelt presided and all the
aldermen were present. The mayor explained the object of the meeting and
called on Mr. Zavitz.
Mr. Zavitz stated that his close In-,
spoction of the plant extending over a
fortnight had convinced him that the
governor is not defective, but lhat all
the friction and resultant Irregularity
In the supply of power are due to faulty
adjustment of the water gates. He proposed that these be removed, repaired
and readjusted, which would not take
more than thirty days and possibly considerably less. Of course, Ihe plant
must be shut down in the meantime.
To the reminder that his opinion was
the exact reverse of that of the company's expert. Arnold Pfau, Mr. Zavitz
had nothing to say.
A long, informal and Inconclusive discussion followed. Mr. Zavitz contended
that the city should hear at least a part
of the expense entailed by closing down,
because alterations are required also in
certain parts of the plant of which the
city has accepted delivery, the supports
of the main shafting, the bracing of the
draught tube and anchoring It.
The members ot the council were not
disposed to admit that the city was in
fault In any particular, and the city
electrician. It. A. Brown, stated that
even the defects mentioned by Mr.
Sa-i: ��� ��� ild all i>e r medled within 'en
days and he saw no reason why altera
tions should require mote than a fortnight at the most.
Mr   Zavitz then withdrew  and   L.  A.
Campbell, manager or the West Kootenav Power and Light company, who
was in the eltv all yesterday, was requested hy telephone to attend the meet
Meanwhile the future of the plant
was Informally discussed. It was mentioned tbai tbe Canada zinc oompany
wauled a service of 860 horse power,

of adding n second unit nt once.

Secretary  of  Grain  Dealers  Puts   Yield
at  164.000J)O0  Bushels���Two-Thirds
is Still Unmarketed.
Winnipeg, Nov. 21).���The total yle'd of
all grain In the Canadian Northwest Is
estimated at lG_,9SSG,���t)i) bushels, according to the clrcuar Issued today by F. O.
Fowler, secretary of the Northwest
Grain Dealers Association, showing the
position of the crop on Nov. 15. Tho
yield of wheal per acre is put at 12.9
bushels and on a previously estimated
acreage of 5,013,544, makes the total
wheat yield 64.C75.000 bushels.
Mr. Fowler makes the oat yield per
acre 34 3 bushels, and with an acreage
of 2.375,030, the production of this grain
aggregates 81,395.000.
Barley Yield. v_
The barley yield Is estimated at "26.3
bushels per acre and with an acreage
of 663.833, the total yield amounts to
16,795,00 bushels.
Flax, with an acreage of 105,050 and
an average yield per sere of 10.2 makes
a total crop of 1.071.500.
Farmers Have Much.
An Important feature of the report Is
that Mr. Fijrtfcr's estimate shows that
of a combined yield of 146.070.000 bushels of wheat and oats, only 33,855,000
bushels have as yet been marketed,
leaving the enormous amount of 112.-
215.000 bushels, in addition to a large
percentage of the barley and flax crops
y*.t unmarketed.
The Movement.
The movement to date has been a
fairly good one. but owing to the fact
that the harvest was a month later
much more grain has been moved than
on the corresponding date last year.
The movement on Oct. 15 last year
amounted to about 33.01111,000 bushels,
and this Is the only date with which a
comparison can be made on account of
the late season.
The following table give, particulars
or the disposition ol Ihe crop, the remainder unmarketed remaining In the

auese had no hard feelings against Canadians on account of the treatment ol
Japanese at Vancouver a few months
"I heard very few expressions of hostility either against Canada or the
United States. There have been In-
ilammatory articles, but the mass of the
people did not seem to attach any seriousness to the various race out-breaks."

Liberal Organizer Gives
Flat Denial
Disclaims all Knowledge of Election
Activity of Hen Charged
With Conspiracy.        '
Toronto, Nov. 29.���A portion of the
sordid story of John Garrett Pritchett
in connection with the ballot switching
and illegal election engineering In various constituencies of Ontario, met with
a Hat denial tn the London bribery case
before Justice Winchester yesterday
afternoon. So far the story of corruption and crookedness which Pritchett
told In the police court a year ago and
In the county court within the last few
days go undisputed.
James Vance, ex-Liberal organizer, denied certain statements that were made
by Pritchett. Vance, who Is a witness
for the defense of four men aharged
with election conspiracy, stated he had
first met Pritchett ln North Hastings.
The latter Introduced himself but had
no credentials. Vance said he had
nothing to do with him. in fact even
went so far, according to his own testimony, as to warn people against Prit-
chet He had never met the man In
South Ontario as alleged by Pritchett.
The crown prosecutor closely questioned Vance as to what part, if any,
the four defendants had taken tn the
North Waterloo election, but no evidence was forthcoming as to their having done anything.

Constantinople, Nov. 29.���The lawless
activity   of  the  Kurdish   tribes  in  the
Kurdish   districts of  Bszeroum,   BItlis.
Van Kbarput and Diarbekir Is causing
lively concern at the porte, particularly
as   the   foreign   embassies   are  urging
that prompt measures be taken by the
government   to   prevent   possible   massacre  under the protection  of the  notorious  Ibrahim  Pasha,  who is  known
as  the  DcBpot of  Kurdistan.    Kurdish
horsemen are making raids without discrimination. Turkish  villages  suffering
equally  with Armenian homesteads on
the plains around Diarbekir and Jezire-
hibn-Omar.    Sixteen villages have been
pillaged    and    burned within the past
month in these districts, and eight villages In the Sert districts bave met with
the same fate.   Several of these villages
were composed entirely ot Moslems and
tn most capes the lives of the Inhabitants were spared, though they were deprived of all their possessions.    There
is a scarcity of food and fodder everywhere.      The    missionaries  are  doing
thel*- best to mitigate  the  misery, but
outside heip .s urgently  needed, if the
danger   of   a   sever.,   famine   Is  to   be
averted.      The movement  In   favor  of
autonomy   ls   gaining   ground  In   Asia

against the Constantinople government
is very strong.   At the same time there
Is a great degree of loyalty among the
Moslems and ihls constitutes a powerful support to the present regime. Press
messages are being held  In  which the
removal of Ibrahim Pasha le being demanded.    The  porte  sent troops  from
Karput against    the    refractory  Kurds
and it will endeavor to Induce Ibrahim
Pasha by   frloudly   persuasion to come
home.    Some  Armenian  villages  were
shelled recently by Turkish troops and
six Kurds were killed.

Is not only planning to outdistance tbe
United States In the struggle for the
commeret' of the I'aclllc but has already
driven the Bteaniship lines of every

Is the statement of Harry 1.. Paddock.
U. S. consul nt Amoy, China, who arrived here yesterday on the steamer
Kora on his way to Washington.
"The Japnm-se have captured the entile ocean carrying trade of China from
Mmig Kong to Shanghai," ho said. "The

moAopollSB* this business, are dolm;
nothing: the same Is true of the Herman lines. All have succumbed to tlie

R.   G.   MacPherson,   M.   P.,   Enlighten!
the East on Subject of Asiatic
On his way east to attend parliament
R. G. MacPherson, M. i*., at Vancouver,
gave an Interview to ihe Winnipeg
Telegram. The date of the interview
was Ttjt'Silay, Nov. lidt.h. '���RobV plea is
lhat then* was a tacit agreement nullifying the formal treaty with .lapan. This
will probably be news to Sir Wilfrid
Laurier. "Bob" is, according to hiins- If,
tin* mouthpiece or 90 per cent, of Brltiah
Columbia. As a matter of fact he probably represent*, the average Intelligence
of tbe mosl ignorant section <>r the east
end of Vancouver. His light on the
Oriental immigration Ik as follows:
'"The rlifflcully in Hritish Columbia In
regard to Oriental innn.in.tion is not
a question of labor but a race and color
prejudice." This eras tha opinion em-
phutieully expressed by K. O. MaeUPber-
Bon, M. P.. of Vancouver. "There has
1,.. v. an ��� ii'istuou influa of Japanese
during thf l>a:;l year." continued Mr
Uacpberaon, "and they have been coming into Hritish Columbia in the proportion of ten to one to any other foreigners. It would not have been long till
We were ousted from the country���five
jrears would have done It nt the rate at
which they were coming a short time
"There was a tacit agreement with
.lapan that, only 480 people should conn-
to thiB country each year. Some of tho
Japanese claim that thla agreement was
nullilied by the treaty made wiih Great
Hrftain, but this is not ro. Most of the
.lapan-*.-*** would conn* via Honolulu, remaining there for a week or two, and
thus evade the charge of coming direct
from Japan. If tbe agreement made by
Japan has been kept in the letter, it
certainly has not been lived up to in
tbe spirit.
"I do not believe there are more than
10 per cent, of the people of British Columbia would desire Oriental immigration. But this 10 per cent Is very influential and can make Itself felt in
many ways. These are ihe people who
ride in Pullman cars and can make
���hemeelves heard, and deBire cheap
!ulK>r Hut the vast majority of the
people of British Columbia are alarmed
today at the situation. There is a deep*
rooted national antipathy against these
r.-Mpi*. Bupnose 6.000 were landed in
Winnipeg today and you ���n-?w that 2,-
OOti more were coming in a week, how
would you feel about It?
"It is all right for you to have the
G-rmans and Slavs coming in here:
they are white. Perhaps they will not
go to the lieutenant-governor's tea party,
but their children will. You can't do
that with Orientals. An Oriental is an
Oriental til he departs from the face of
the earth. W*e can't afford to bring to
our countrv peoples who cannot be assimilated. Something will probably be
done���ft must be done durinp. the coming session. The commlssinn--r of tba
Dominion government, ttcKenxlfi Kin^.
is at present investigating ihe books of
the Canadian Nippon -company, which
was largely instrumental in bringing the
Japanese to this c* untry The report
will perhaps be made public today as
to what persons were actually behind
the  great influx of Orentals."

Andrew's Bodety of Nelson, a number
of the younger representatives of the
Land oVakes have resoh ed to have a
banquet in honor of the occasion It
will he held in the Strathcona hotel
Monday evening, and will he followed
hy the usual songs and toasts.
Lead is the metal on which British
Columbia's interest now centres. The
London quotation has fallen to ��1G. 5s.,
within five points of the bounty price.
Yesterday being the American Thanks
giving Day no quotations were received
from New York. Wednesday's figniv
was UlG, l">s., so there has heen a drop
of eight points in two days. Other
metals are practically unchanged, silver
showing a fractional decline.
Deer  Are   Disappearing.
\Y. Manaon, of Lilloet. one of the mosl
noted hunters and guides on the main
land, states that the deer in his district are greatly diminishing and are in
danger of extinction unless the ravagei
of panthers, coyotes, wolves and lyn\
are put an end to. These animals with
the eagles have preyed upon rabbits and
the smaller game, but on account of th-'
scarcity of the latter have turned their
attention to the deer. The hunter and
the repeating rifle have done not a little
in the* general devastation, a revision
ijf the bounties to encourage the destruction of the beasts of prey is re-commended by Mr. Manson as the remedy.
Wild  Man of Sooke.
The citizens of Victoria are excited
over the report that there is a wild man
at Sook<\ on Vancouver Island. A party
of three hunters out after bears caught
sight of what they first supposed to be
a bear but which on approaching nearer
tie > found to he a man, stark naked.
He was endeavoring lo spear salmon
with a long pole. On catching sight of
the hunters he ran away through iht*
woods. Tlie hunters are positive that
the animal was a man and venture the
belief that it was some poor demented
cn Sture running wild without clothing
The matter will probably lie reported to
the provincial police, who will be asked
to look into it.
Tonight's  Ball.
The long awaited ball in aid of the
provincial sanatorium for consumptive
patients win be held in the armory tonight The work of decorating was be
gUD yesterday afternoon and will he
finished today und'-r the supervision of
chief Deasy of the nre department Th.
people of Nelson have responded most
generously to the appeal not only by
the purchase of tickets and other contributions in money hut by donation* of
delicacies for the supper which will be
served during the evening. The flrst
object of the enterprise is frankly to
raise as large a sum as possible to make
a thoroughly creditable offering from
Nelson for as worthy an object as any
that could be named. I'nder such circumstances no man will object to the
little extra contributions he will be allowed to make during the evening
financial success is already achieved
The means for an evening of social enjoyment are provided on a lavish scale,
and there is no doubt that the citizens
will show their appreciation of tlie pub
lie spirited efforts of Mr and Mrs. .1. J.
Walker who have, organized the pi r
forma nee, by attending and making it
a brilliant success in every way.
Notloe is hereby given that nt the
next meeting of Me Hoard of I.lcemie
Commissioners for ',he District of Ynilr
in he held after the aspiration "f thirty
days, I intend to apply fur a transfer of
lhe Eim-nse for the (Irove Hotel from
myself to William QosneU.
