The mayor made au important suggestion legarding the iramway, tual the
service  be  discontinued.
Many important matters were dealt
���with, aud, of necessity, left untiiiished.
The meeting lusted over three hours.
The council met ut S o'clock with
Mayor Taylor in the chair, and Aldermen Procter, Kerr, Hale, Patenaude,
Bleed and M"*.Morns present. The
minutes ui the lust meeting were read
uud adopted.
The fire, v^-Le-Jj-ii ,light committee
reported recommending that the city
install u high voltage transmission line
through the city aloag a route to be approved hy the city electrician, ut u cost
uol to exceed 98*600, the Canada Zinc
compauy to pay leu per cent, of the
cost ol construction annually, give the
eiiy the light and motor load at their
plant, and to give ulso their smelter
load when the cily is iu a position to
luruish   them.
The report was taken up clause by
K. y. Lennie, who appeared for the
Canada Zinc company, could not accept the conditions. The company
could not at present afford to divide its
patronage. The city cannot now supply
it with electric power. Their only
available source is the West Kootenay
Power and Light company. They ask
only for Irauchise to lead their transmission line through the city. They
are willing to build that at their own
expense or to pay a reasonable rental
if the city prefers to build, own and
operate the line, lie could assent to
no stipulation as lo future patronage
in the matter of power, lie dwelt on
the luture advantage to be derived hy
the city iroui the operation of the plant,
and urged that nu onerous conditions
should be attached to the concession

Aid. Procter asked if the city could

to the Zinc company.
Mr. Lennie replied thut all their negotiations had been based upon the assumption thut the city could not. during the present yeur ut least, supply
the power required.
The mayor repeated that the Hty
could not give away its natural adjacent
marketa,   und    recommended   another

begged for a decision.
The mayor thought the suggestion wns

Aid. iiuie, chairman, could not see
anything to be gained by a further reference without concessions by the compuny on one or both of the points In
dispute, whp should incur the original
cost of building the line, und, whether
there should be any condition attached
as  to future  patronage.
On the mayor's suggestion, the matter was referred back to the committee.
The second clause of the report
recommended that the Kootenay Engineering Works be required to connect their motor with the electric system within ten days.   This was adopted.
The mayor reported for the special
committee that it was tentatively agreed
that the Allis-ChalmeiK-liullock company should restore the draught tube
am! attach it, and the city attend to the
bracing. Other matters ure not yet set-
Mr. Lennie���Without prejudice to
either company or city.
The mayor's report of progress was
adopted, and instructions were continued.
The questions between the city and
the West Kootenay Power and Light
company were then by resolution referred back from the fire, water and
light committee to the full council.
L. A. Campbell, by request, addressed
the council on the subject of the retainer. First he asked what was to be
done about his verbal agreement with
Mayor Gillett for the payment of the
The mayor���Personally, I am in favor
of paying all our just debts whether acknowledged in writing or not.
Mr. Campbell���My understanding is
that the agreement dated trom tlie expiry of the substation agreement, about
Jan.  2lst.
While the cly clerk looked up the
agreement the mayor asked Mr. Campbell it his company were willing to continue the arraugement.
Mr. Campbell replied that he did not
think that Nelson wanted his company
in tbe city. He was not anxious to do
business in the city. They had never
seen any sign of welcome, and had now
completed arrangements for removing
their apparatus from the subststioo.
The mayor remarked that matters of
history need not be revived. The present council was prepared to talk business  without  prejudice.
Mr. Campbeii thought the circulation
of "The Campaigner" indicated the survival of all the prejudice.
Tbe mayor and Aid. Procter disclaimed au> responsibility for the paper mentioned.
Mr. Campbell exp-lainod that the fee
of $1,000 retainer was agreed upon when
the company was also supplying the
Hull Mines smelter.
Asked for a proposition he suggested
taking over the city's lighting on a rental or percentage basis.
The mayor assured him that such an
offer could not be considered.
Mr. Campbell further explained that
for the past year he had kept prepared
to supply Nelson. The business in the
Houndary as well as at Trail und Koss-
laud was so extensive that he feared
the cost to Nelson of reserving power
and keeping It regulated, would be considered excessive.
At the mayor's request Mr. Campbell
promised to submit a proposition in one
week. He remarked on the benefits
conferred upon Kootenay and Houndary
by the operation of the Uounington
plant. He regretted that all interests
in Kootenay had not cooperated from
tlie beginning, if the company had not
been bumpered by the city of Nelson
they would furnish the zmc plant with
power free for a year.
Mr. Campbell agreed in the interval
to leave his plant at the substation ln
working order, pending the submission
of his proposition. He agreed also to
meet the lire, water and light committee within a week.
Mr. Lennie arranged to meet the fire.
water and light committee tonight at S
o'clock in tlu- city hall.
A letter was read from ex Mayor 011-
leit in reference to the power plant machinery, asking for a written request
and reasons. He pointed out the injustice to him of so sudden a notice in
view of the arrangements he had made.
He also offered to purchase the second
boiler which was valueless until he hud
ii   repaired.
Aid. Procter thought if the machinery
Wen   not needed  Mr. (Jiliett should  he
allowed to retain it us long as he need
.-.I It. Of course If it were required by
the city, there could  he 00 delay.
The mayor explained that the ma
chlnery is absolutely needed ut the
plant  ul  once.    He  regretted the street
gossip which represented the move as
deliberately unfriendly to ex-Mayor Gil-
leiie. If an assurance to the contrary
were desired he would gladly fuvoi

The finance committee reported progress on  the school   board  estimates,
Aid. McMorris stating that they had
asked the board for some details.
Tin- committee ulso recommended a
dumber of accounts aggregating J I.
721.81, and  a  payroll  of $95.��5.
The report was adopted and accounts
ordered paid.
The city clerk then reported thut the
boiler Mr. Gillett wanted hud cost
$897.50, hut was useless at the time it
had passed to him.
Aid. Kerr questioned the expediency
ol selling It till sure of the efficiency of
the city's oilier holler.
lt wus agreed to leave it with Mr. OU
lett in the meantime, and give him ��
definite reply as soon us possible.
The tramway and health committee
reported, recommending the purchase
of a wagon for the scavenging depart
ment, and the connecting of Baker
street buildings with a sewer through
tne alley between Baker and Victoria
streets trom Hall to Stanley, and the
extension of the Haker street sewer
from H-Budryx to Cedar street.
Aid. Patenaude suggested thut the engineer estimate the cost of work proposed, and that the report be considered
at the next meeting.
Aid. Steed drew attention to several
instances ot luilure iu comply with the
sewer bylaw.
A letter from J. H. Hoyes complained
of a shortage in his November time
cheque, and asked for a hearing on his
dismissal by K. A. Hrown.
The clerk explained the dismissal of
the matter at the council meeting of
Dec. lUth.
Aid. McMorris thought the matter had
been fully dealt with before.

With every respect for the motives
that Inspired Mayor Taylor in recommending Investigation of the financial
reaulta of the operation of tbe tramway
system* with a view to Its possible dia
continuance, we dissent in toto Inun his
opinions as  to  its expediency.
The question whether the original Investment ot" money in a tramway system tor Nelson was wise or unwise la
now Irrelevant Whether the council
of 1904 was well advised or nol in tak
ing over the operation of tin* s; ti m
is also trrevelant The only thing ta
be considered now is the present situs
tlon as ii confronts tbe council, the tax
payers and tbe Citizens in general.
Nelson is ilie only city in Canada between New Westminster and Winnipeg
which has an electric street cur sys
inn. The New Westminster system i��
an adjunct of the Vancouver Bystem,
Jt was operated tor years al a loss, bul
thu company never Utoughl or so retro
s-gro-ssive a -sti'ji ;ts- ; usjuiuiing opera! Ion.
The service is now paying a profit
Thu fact thai Nelson has a streei car
system la Well known ami has a value
us an advertisement which la hard to
estimate. We .believe that on thla
/.���round alone an excellent case could
be made out for the continued main
tenance of the aervice even at a very
gn at  financial sacrifice.
It tin- question of Installing an electric car system were presented to tie
citizens now for the flrsi time there
would be room for argument as to
���whethi-tr the ultimate benefits would !����
proportionate to the cost. JJnl the sys
tern has been In operation now for seven years. The question now is: "What
���will it  cost   Nelson to abandon it?"
Kveryone knows that the company
ivnulj   built  tbe Hue seven  years  ago,
did not expect that It would earn pro-
lit* from the beginning. It was an
heroic enterprise lor a small town of
In 1 ween :..UU0 and 4,000 inhabitants.
It was built and Its operatiou begun
in hope and confidence that the future
held good things in store for Nelson,
and that ultimately the courage and
faith of the investors would meet with
substantia]  reward.
Are we prepared now to advertise to
the world that we have lost that hope
and   that  confidence?
We are ln the money markets now
trying to sell $60,000 worth of school
debentures. Very soon we must face
another issue of debentures to install a
second unit of our power plant, to
which we are now so heavily pledged.
Can anyone conceive of a more deadly
blow to our credit than an acknow-
li dgment that we can not now, and
tu ver expect to be able to maintain
a Street car Bystem, which the Nelson

justified by the gnat expectations or
Nelson's future which we all profess
to share, [a ii consistent with the professions  of  men   who call  themselves
Progressives to advocate the first retrograde step in the city's history?
This Is the first and -greatest consideration.    But there are many others.
The operation of the tramway system has encouraged the growth of the
city. We have a populous and growing suburb to the east, and to the
.--outh of the city, up the hill In every
direction, citizens have built homes,
easy of access by means of street cars.
Very inconvenient without. It Is quite
true that many of the residents of such
Suburbs do not at present contribute directly to the city's revenue. Thut Is
only a matter of time. Kveri now they
are all working iu and for Nelson. Further even Within the city limits proximity to Uie car line is an Important
factor lu fixing the value of residential property.

Boaton, .Ian. 2-S.���Arrangements have

Repudiated     Wife     Sues     Estates    for
Widow's   Rights.
Ottawa, Jan. 28.���A local sensation
hag been caused by tiie return of Mis.
J. Warnock to the capital and her announcement that she will start a legal
light to legitimatize her four children.
The case is unique in Canada. James
Warnock, one of the several sons who
each inherited a fortune upon tlie death
of their father some years ago, recently left his wife and four grown-up children and married a young woman named McCallum. He stated that he was
not married to the woman known as
his wife and with whom he had lived
for fourteen years. He went to Hrock-
ville about two months ago after disposing of his propei ty here, and about
ten days a^o died suddenly, leaving
an estate of neatly $100,000. His former wife now appears with a claim
that the dead man married her in Og-
densburg in 1801 and says she has the
i.iarriage certificate. She announces
her determination to light the case. A
big legal battle is looked for. The will
of the deceased leaves $5,000 to each
of the above four children, but the residue of the estate is given to the woman  who  he  married   two months  ago.
Irish Problems Lead.
London, Jan. 28.���Keen interest Is
manifested in the opening of Parliament tomorrow, as the session promises to be one of the most important
since the Campbell-Bannennan ministry came into power. If all the legislation promised for the coming session
is forecasted in the speech from the
throne*, the members of the House of
Commons will have a stupendous task
before them, and the usual session ot
six months will have to be supplemented by an autumn session. Irish affairs
are expected to have the foremost place
on the agenda, though just what turn
the proceedings will take in relation
to this ever-present problem is uncertain. After Ireland, in point of public
interest, will come an education bill
and a drastic  licensing  bill.

Church  Indebtedness Cleared.
At the Sunday Service in the Church
of Mary Immaculate, the Kev. Father
Althoif announced the clearing off of
tbe sacred edifice. Some time ago the
mortgage was redeemed and handed to
His Lordship Bishop Dontenweil; but a
small balance of the original cost of the
church, some $S,0U0, remained. The recent socials and contributions aided materially to paying off the small debt,
and the Father, who has been so
energetic In the work, congratulated the congregation on the ownership of this valuable structure.
When he took charge of the parish the
debt was large, but with infomitable
st'lf-sacrifice he undertook and carried
out the collection and payment of the
balance due.
