Ihlef Jarvls In his report enumerated
' various cases dealt with by the po

small number of cases presented reflects great credit on the chief and his
assistants. He referred to the good
order prevailing during the various celebrations held In the city laBt year, and
paid a glowing tribute to Ihe staunch
support given him by the other members of the force.
The report of Ihe caretaker of the
cemetery showed that only 47 Interments had taken place during the year.
The tramway report showed tliat operating expenses. Including repairs, salaries, power, a new lathe, motor and
armatures totalled  $10,350.60.
The city engineer's report was not
complete, and Mr. McCulloch stated
lhat it would take him some time to
itemize the power plant costs, but be
would make a complete report as soon
as possible. He furnished, bowever,
some Interesting approximate figures,
which showed that the total cost of tbe
power plant, not Including legal expenses, up to December 31, 1906, had
been $186,000. Tbe transmission line
cost $16,000, tbe substation $650, while
the amount paid out for labor, since
the construction of the plant has been
carried on city account, and amounts to
$53,000. The sale of the construction
plant should net tbe city about $2000.
No further business developiug, the
mayor, In a few well chosen words,
thanked the aldermen and civic officials for their courtesy and firm support during the past year.
The meeting then adjourned sine die.
Fnr-i Ckkt-8 a Montr
Mclnnes' Impudent Threat About Better
Terms Causes General Indignation
at the Caost.
(Special to Tba Dally Canallao.)
Victoria, B. C, Jan. 12.���Public feeling at the coast cities still runs high
at Mclnnes' extraordinary statement
tbat British Columbia cannot hope for
better terms until a Liberal government
la put ln power, it Is a little too much
for even the mose rabid Liberals to
swallow. It Is doubtful if tbe history of
Canadian politics shows anything Ilk*
it. Tbe right of tbe province to better
terms is admitted by Liberals aa well
as by Conservatives, it la admitted by
the premier of Canada and his finance
minister, and by tbe premiere of other
provinces, but tbo recognition of this
right ln practical form dependa, Bays
Mclnnes, upon the defeat of McBride.
There Is no longer any doubt that Mr.
McBride had ever accepted what was offered at Ottawa. We are told tbat
nothing like a fair measure of justice
would be extended to ub while be is
premier. Developments tn this matter
indicate a deep laid plan to defeat any
effort tbat Mr. McBride might make.
So confident were the opposition
press that hla mlasion to Ottawa would
be a failure that tbey said so before
be left Victoria. Their treatment of
public matters does not suggest the idea
that they are sufficiently sagacious to
reach a conclusion of this kind without having a private tip that nothing
would come of the conference as far
British Columbia's special claims are
concerned. The paper tbat was the
most positive ln prophesying failure
was the Times, which ls owned by tbe
minister of inland revenue. It is hard
to believe that It would have treated
Mr. Mcllride's mission as fore-doomed
to failure unless It had Information
from headqparters.
Mr. Mclnnes has only gone a step farther limn the papers went. He has only
said what they would have If they had
not beon lacking In courage. In the
course of his remarks at Vancouver,
Mclnnes spoke about McUride having
offended the other premiers. This was
very absurd. What right had the other
premiers to be offended bcoause Mr. *
McBride would not accept a sum utterly
out of keeping wltb what the province
Is entitled to. British Columbia made
no bargain with the provinces and Is
asking nothing from the provinces.
Brltlah Colombia Ib by far the largest
contributor pro rata toward the Dominion revenue, and If the maximum
claimed by Mr. McBride were granted
it would be much less than that which
British Columbia pays into the federal
Tralna and Stats.

Municipal Elections Over
In two hours
Few Changes in Personnel of Council
and Board of School Trustees���
Speeches and Comment.
This morning, for the first time In
tbe history of Nelson, a mayor, six aldermen and three school trustees were
elected by acclamation. The only
changes in tbe composition of tbe two
elective bodies, council and school
board are the replacing of J. A. Kirkpatrick in tbc council by Captain D. C.
McMorris aud of Dr. O. A. B. Hall on
the school board by W. Irvine.
The compoaltlon of the two for 1907
la as follows:
Mayor���W. O. .Gillett.
Eaat Ward���J. A. Irving, W. O. Rose,
D. C. McMorris.
WeBt Ward���J. Fred Hume, Harold
Selous, J. E. Annable.
School Trustees���E. C. Arthur, F. W.
Swannell, R. J. Steel, A. D. Emory and
W. Irvine.
At 2 p. m., Returning Officer W. E.
Wasson declared the above named gentlemen elected by acclamation.
Mayor Gillett briefly acknowledged
tbe honor. He spoke of tlie hard work
done by the council and paid a tribute
to the zeal and Industry of bis colleagues. He was confident tbat the
tasks of 1907 would be as faithfully performed and wltb the same public-spirited concord in the council.
Alderman Irving, while regretting
tbe too peaceful re-election, concurred
in the mayor's wishes for harmony ln
the council of 1907. He thought the
problems of power, water and light,
now ln course of solution, required an
experienced council, and attributed
tbe action of the citizens to appreciation of tbat fact.
Dr, E. C. Arthur, doyen of the school
board, declared tbat the deliberations
of that body bad always been harmonious. He frankly notified the new
council that the first act of the new
board would be a demand for a new
public school building.
R. J. Steel endorsed Dr. Arthur's
statements In both respects.
C. A. Waterman playfully expressed
his great regret that there was to be
no fight and bewailed the absence of
ex-Mayor Houston, who would never
have allowed such conduct.

A commercial traveller���a Liberal���
who visits every riding ln tbe province, was in the city yesterday and
amused blmaelf predicting results ln
the various constituencies. His summary showed 24 Conservatives, 11 Liberals and 7 Socialist and Labor members. To make even tbat showing tor
the Liberals he had to assign them
Rossland, Greenwood, Columbia and
two seats ln Vancouver. Even Premier
McBride waa more charitable. Heal-
lowed tbe Liberals a baker's dozen.
Fernie Liberals Bad Long
Search for Victim
Attempt to Compromise with Labor
Party Displeases all���-Easy victory for Ross.
(Special to The Dally Canadian.)
Fernie, B. C, Jan. 12.���Tbe Conaerva-
tlve rally tonight bad a crowded meeting, notwithstanding tbat tbe day was
Saturday, and tbe weather was bad. Dr.
Bonnell and Chairman Ross justified the
action regarding the eight hour law.
W. J. Bowser stated tbat Mclnnes
and Macdonald bad Issued a challenge
regarding the socialist support of tbs
Mr. McBride was received wltb enthusiasm. He Justified the course of tbe
government and refuted the Kaien Island arguments as false. No other candidates spoke.
Tbe labor convention last night was
captured by tbe Socialists. W. M.
Dicken, Liberal, who la appealing for
tbe labor vote la making no headway.
Rosa la a sure wlnnner.
The long deferred Liberal convention to nominate a candidate for tbe
coming provincial elections waa held
here last night, about 100 being present.
According to tbe previously arranged
programme those present proceeded to
elect delegates, who wnt Into convention forthwith to nominate their standard-bearer. This proved itself a knotty
problem, and the solution of It by the
nomination of W. M. Dicken of Fernie
was tar from satisfactory to many of
those present.
Before this result was reached, every
parliamentary possibility ln sight waa
nominated, but they all wltb one consent "began to make excuse." The first
man named was M. Mclnnes of Elk-
mouth, who made baste to decline the
honor. Tbe next suggestion waa C. D.
McNab, who thought'no better of the
proposition. Then followed ln rapid
succession the names of Fred Stork,
Wm. Tuttle, F. C. Lawe, Dr. Hlgglns,
and Mr. Simpson of Cranbrook Herald
faro*. As each ln turn rose to decline
wltb thanks, tbe Liberal thermometer
dropped another notch.
All the possibilities being now exhausted tbe convention took Into Its
consideration the impossibilities.
Eighthly and lastly, the name of Mr.
Dicken waB presented to the brethren,
and that gentleman was easily persuaded to give his blushing consent A
leader was at last found to guide the
chosen people into the promised land.
But when, after a session of over four
hours, tbe meeting was adjourned, to
be continued in sections on tbe streets
and ln tbe hotels, murtnurings were
heard agalnat this Moses, who bad been
discovered at the last moment in tbe
political bullrushes. Many of those present were heard to say ln tbe most positive manner tbat they would vote
agalnat Dicken and for Ross, tbe Con-
servatlve candidate and late member.
Although It aeems to have been the
only thing left, to do, the nomination of
Mr. Dicken was an unfortunate thing *
for tbe Liberal party In Fernie.. Mr.
Dicken arrived in Canada about a year
ago, and by bis native talent soon at-
talned the position of president of the
local miners' union. At the time ot the
last strike, however, he waa tried ln
the balance and found wanting, and
his resignation asked for and obtained.
In view of this fact, lt la bard to understand how even the most sanguine
of his supporters could have hoped for
the endorsement of the labor party's
convention, which was held tonight.
The longer-headed Liberals desired anything rather than a formal endorsement
of tbelr candidate by the convention,
which would finally alienate the already
disaffected old-line Liberals. They
hoped tbat, ln some subtle and secret
way, the Labor party would throw Its i
support toward the Liberal nominee.
But tbat gentleman himself displayed
no such delicacy, starting out bright
and early this morning ln the endeavor
to capture tonight's meeting.   Hla
forts, however, were not crowned wltb
success, the convention being captured
instead by the Socialists wbo already
bave tbelr candidate, W. H. Moore, In
the Rein. Thus Mr. Dickens' position
ln regard to the Labor vote ia no stronger than lt was, and hla standing with
tbe Liberals Is distinctly weaker. Between the two stools he has fallen to
tbe ground.
Tbe outcome of It all is that there
aro three candidates ia the field, W.
R. Ross, Conservative; W. M. Dicken,
Uberal, and W. H. Moore, Socialist Mr.
Robs' position is Improving daily, and
tbe knowing onea are offering odda of
3 to 1 tbat he will be elected, with no
C. P. R. Changes.
Tbe formation of ice ln tbe Weat
Arm of Kootenay lake baa necessitated
certain changes In tbe C. P. R. service.
Hereafter until further notice a train
will leave Nelaon for Procter daily at
7:15 a. ni. making connections for both
Kootenay Landing and Kaslo, returning
having made both connections, at 5 p.
m. The steamer will leave Kaslo tor
Procter daily, except Sunday, at 1:20
p. m.
Tbe delays in tbe arrival of the tralna
from tbe coast are due to difficulties
of navigation between Arrowhead and
Nakusp caused by ice in tbe Upper Arrow lake.
North Fork Property to B�� Developed
at Once���Former Shipments of
Hlgh-Grade Ore.
(Special to Tbe Dally Canadian.)
Grand Forks, Jan. 14.���Another deal
of great local Importance baa Just beon
closed here for the purehaae of tbe
The Little Bertha group consists of the
Alex Miller and F. H. Knight for a aum
reported te be $60,000, the former own-
era being J. Pringle and W. Kendrick.
The Little eBrtha group consists of the
Little Bertha; Jasper, B. P. aad Derby
���all situated at tbe base of Pathfinder
mountain, some 14 milea up the Nortb
Fork from Grand Forks. Tbe Little
Bertha haa always been regarded al
one of tbe high grade properties on tbe
Nortb Fork. In 1901 shipmenta from
the Little Bertha were made to the
Granby smelter, tbe results shewing
values of from $15 to $77 per ton in
all values. The same year two carloads of ore were shlppel to the North-
port smelter which resulted in returns
og $22 in gold and $11 In silver to tbe
ton. Over 400 feet of development
work haa been done on the Little Bertha property, consisting of tunnelling
and shaft-sinking, and over 200 tona of
high grade ore has already been shipped from this property. The Kettle
Valley'Line railway runs close to these
properties Tbe new owners of this
group intend to Instal a concentrator
as well as a cyanide plant.. The high
grade lead is three feet and a half wide
and lt is estimated that It will assay an
average of $25 in gold and silver. Great
excitement exists hero in mining circles
over the closing of this deal, which affects a group of very high grade properties at the very threshold of Grand
The Vmir Convention.
The Conservative nominating convention of Ymir riding waa held yesterday
morning about 3 o'clock, on the arrival
of the delegates from Creston.
The proceedings, which were absolutely harmonious, lasted exactly 20
minutes. James H. Schofleld, of Trail,
was tendered the unanimous nomination on motion of Harry Wright, exactly aa foreshadowed In Saturday'a loaue
of The Dally Canadian.
Shortage of Coal and   Coke   Affecting
Bjth Mlnea and Smeltsra.
Tbe present shortage of coal coupled
with the unprecedented cold spell,
threaten serious1 trouble to the mining
and smsltlng industries. On Saturday
the Granby smelter blew out Its furnaces owing to lack of coke, and already some of the Boundary mines
have closed down. In Rossland the Lie
Rol closed on Saturday, as the ore bina
were full, the fuel supply scarce and
the railroad unable to handle tbe output.
The ratlroada are short of fuel and
very little freight Is moving. In the
Boundary the C. P. R. has not coal sufficient for half Its engines and may
Boon have to refuse to handle ore shipments. In that case a general closedown Ut the Boundary Is Imminent

meeting held thla evening at WatUburg In tbe interests of the candidature
of J. A. Harvey, the mayor of Cranbrook preaided. J. A. Harvey addressed
tbe meeting and met wltb an enthusiastic reception. The following resolution was unanimously passed:
"That the thanks aad congratulations
of every person in the province of British Columbia are due to tbe Hog. R.
McBride and Us government for having
bad the courage and firmness to Insist
that expenditure should not exceed income, and that any sacrifice that this
district had to make to secure that end
was cheerfully made and would be
made again if necessary to turn debt
and dishonor into a surplus and confidence aad its attendant prosperity.
"Tbat we heartily endorse the decision of tbe government not to grant
public lands te any railway companies,
and also that all railway companies
shall pay their due proportion of taxes.
That we strongly condemn and disapprove of a campaign based on slander
and falsehood aod the use of reiterated
charges agilaat th* gnsinjaasl -which
hare already been proved to he without foundation, and ths majority of voters present wlah It to be recorded tbat,
although tbey voted Uberal at the laat
election, tor the foregoing reasons
they will now plodge their support to
the Conservative administration."

J. Fred Hume has Issued his campaign manifesto fo the electors of Ymir
ridlna;. It is a fair manifesto in its way
hut contains abundant interna! evidence
thai it is a campagn manifesto and
nothing more. For instance, Mr. Hume
dealafe* himself against the granting
of subsidies in money or land to any
railway enterprise whatever. It
only a little more than six years since
Mr. Hume was a member of the cabinet that granted more land and money
for railways in two years than any other cabinet in twice that   time.     And
cure iv Mr Hume icnowe _iat he cam- ;

Grand Trnnk i'acific company, still bent

of the province. The McBride sovern-
ment ia the only government in the his-
���ory of ;j-riti_h Columbia that has not
^iTeD or promiseij money or land to a
railway company, it haa paid the obli-
tratjona ft ite predecea-aors. it haa exacted from the railway 'ompani_a

tlers, and the immediate surveying of
at! iand suitable for asfrlculturf-, ;md
-ection maps to be made of fhe same. '
That Mill J is ��� large order. The population or the province is less than one
perflon to the square mile. Does J.
Fred want =urvev parties sent into
northern Cariboo' Tt is said" that
;here are large tracts ol arable land
there. Would he legislate against land
ilnnlliillHSIII improrement and promotion comfianles? They are not actual
settlers. Dr. Hall has advocated the
same thing. In fact it is th* only thing
Dr, Hall has advocated so fir 'hat is
not --chollv -.eza-ive. Nn one in NVlson
will acrnse either Dr. Hall or T. Fred
Hume of having invented the idea. It
was inspired by J, A. Macdonald. What
would J. A. Macdonald be saying now if
'he government had expended SWrersJ
hundred thonsand dollars���and that
wonld not go far���in having surveys
made of alt the potential agriculturr.l
land of fhe province? He wonld be declaiming in his .sad funereal tones
against the expenditure of public money, in a Mme of financial stress, upon
matters that might well have waited,
for which there is as yet no urgent
need. This is merely frftlpism for the
sake of criticism. Dr. Hall and Mr.
JHume, if they have to borrow ideas.
might use a nicer discretion in borrowing.
The most novel feature of the campaign throughout the province is the
..umber of -Socialist candidates in the
field. Their leader. I. H. Hawthorn*
rhwaite. has almost fulfilled his threat
ot placing a candidate in the field in
every constltuenry It is a strange de-
���������������lopment. on British soil. The literature read by fhe Socialists, t he experl-
ODOM that have made most of them Socialists, their social and economic ideals, especially where they differ from
present conditions, are all of American
origin and the product of American conditions. The men and their teachers
have seen law made and administered
in the interest of corporations, they
have seen legislatures and courts*
bought, and sold, and have seen the militia employed in the private service of
corporations. That such men should
desire a change even at **he cost of
revolution, is hardly to be wondered at.
But in Canada there is no justification
for such views. Our judges and juries
may occasionally be wrong headed and
foolish, but they are never open to purchase. Military force is rarely required to assist the police in maintaining law and order, and is never employed for any other purpose, ffieoep!
for a few visionaries of narrow reading
who dream that the abolition of private
ownership of land would remedy all the
defects of human nature, the Socialist
constituency in British Columbia is
made tip entirely of men who became
Socialists in the United States. They
hav-> really no mmrrel with the laws of
British Columbia. Their strength is In
the mining camps. It is inconceivable
that more than half a dozen at the
most can be returned, li would be a
disaster if a Socialist group were created in the house strong enough to hamper the work of the government.
The local Liberal organ in strangely,
STvn unkindly, silent about the merits
of the Uberal candidate, Dr. Hall. To
be sure, the doctor's three puhile addresses of the campaign so far have not
afforded much material for eulogy but.
many men have hecome fair, even great,
public speakers In spite of similar unfortunate beginnings. Surely it would
he wiser, aa well as kindlier, of the
Daily News to give the doctor a little
encouragement and to point out his
weaknesses. It might suggest, for instance, that in future he should try
shorter stories than "the mixed train."
and not try to improve on them. The
doctor has one virtue reii'iislte for a
speaker, and has It in a high degree���
courage. It was no light undertaking
to appear on a platform without a case
against two such speakers as the premier and W. .1. Bowser. We admire
the doctor for his pluck and wish him
all success���in Improving himself as
a public speaker.

Vancouver, Jan. 12.���Aftor ulx months
service as head of the police department of Vancouver, Chief Colin Chls-
holm, of his own volition, vacates his
offlce, when on Monday morning he
formally hands to the police commissioners his resignation. The idea of
the 111 mbers of the electoral union who
are working on the matter is that a
man should be secured who ls ln perfect harmony with the sentiment of the
majority of the city council on the social evil question. This sentiment tbe
officers of the union believe was endorsed ln a most unmistakable manner
at the polls on Thursday, and therefore
must be ..accepted as the voice of the
people. No official who is in favor of
such ideas on the question prevailing
on the European continent is thought
to be worthy of tne least consideration.
At a meeting of the local members
of the labor party, held ln Labor hall
last night, five names were presented
as nominees for candidature for the
house from this city. On the ballot Alderman Williams and Mr. M. G. Perry
were selected from the number, and
the followers of the party will be asked
to support them at the polls. Outsiders
look on this action as likely to result
ln a large split In the Uberal vote. A
conference was also held with representatives from Richmond, and it was
decided that the Labor party should
not make any nominations for that district.
At a meeting of the Socialists held
last night Comrade Kingsley took up
the question of Mclnnes and his Socialistic aspirations. He remarked that
the Socialists would not have a Liberal
leader ln their party, but the Liberals
seemed glad to have been able to get
Tho story of the generous gift of
some works on Socialism to the Nanaimo organisation of the party by Mclnnes was then related. It was ou January 13,1900, that Mclnnes tried ln that
fashion to propitiate the men to whom
on January 17 of the same year he applied for admission to the Socialist party. However, tt tl matter of history
tbat Mclnnes was turned down. "Now
