TRUSTEES'JONVENTIBN
Nelson  School  Board  Meets This Af
ternoon to  Prepare  Agenda for
Friday Morning.
The board or school trustees will
meet In the office of the secretary,
Dr. E. C. Arthur .this afternoon at 4
o'clock.
Friday evening would be the regular meeting night, but the earlier
date Is chosen ssi that business may
be prepared fur the convention of Interior school trustees which will be
held here on Friday.
Invitations to the trustees of cities
and rural districts of Kootenay and
Houudary were sent out several
months ago, and although few definite replies have been received there
Is certain to he a fair attendance, as
many or the trustees will lie visitors
to the Nelson lair.
The provincial trustees' Institute
lias been In existence for two years,
and conventions have lieen held In
Vlotorla and Vancouver. The iusli-
title has already exercised considerable Influence upon amendments to
tile BOhoOl act.
The Nelson board has been represented on eaoh occasion, by Or. Arthur. He Is ot opinion tbat In some.
respeots the interests or the interior
are different frnm those of the coast
cities, which havo hitherto had the
majority representation ln the conventions.
He therefore wishep to organize the
Interior boards, so that their Influence
may he felt at the next convention,
which will be held in Nelson in Easter
week of 1907.

Interesting   Observations   of   Winnipeg
Ex-Mayor Andrews.
Winnipeg, Sept. 1-.���Ex-Mayor Andrews has just returned from a
lengthy trlii ln Europe. Interviewed
ou the operation of municipal ami public utilities he said lhat he took a
great Interest during his travel In the
problem of state and municipal ownership ul' public utilities, adding:
"The great strides which huve been
made lu Ureal llrltaln during the past
ten years iu this regard are evidence
that it is one ot the great question*
under consideration by the people. Tho
municipalities are ull acquiring thu
public service as fast ub possible. The
government have made such success
witli the operation of the telegraph iu
connection with th- postal department
that they have taken over the operation of the telephones us well. At the
present time they are working very
harmoniously with the National Telephone company's system, although
there ls keen rivalry between the government and company. In 1911 the
whole system Is to come under government jurisdiction and then they
will own and operate all the telephones. Although the railways are under the control ol the board of trade,
who insist upon a very excellent service at quite reasomrble rates, yet
there Is growing a strong feeling iu
favor of the government acquiring the
railways aud operating them.
"In moBt countries on the continent
they are much further advanced in
their practical tesls of municipal ownership than In Great Britain. In Germany the people own and operate
practically all the railways and use
the same business methods in acquiring them that any sharp business cor-
poration would use and withal .they
have dealth quite fairly with the companies. Very low rates prevail In Germany and the service is quite satisfactory lo the people.
"1 saw more, however, of the operation of the railways," said Mr. Andrews, "in Belgium. Here the government have acquired a great portion of
the railway systems. There are 2890
miles of road owned by the government, and they have traffic arrangements over the other lines. Besides
giving an excellent service the rates
of travel are very cheap There are
three classes ot travel, the second
class being quite good enough tor anyone, ln order In encourage travel,
Benson tickets are Issued, which entitle the holder to travel anywhere on
governmenl or corporation lines, in
Belgium. They hear exactly the same
privilege* as the passes Issued here.
The bolder or the ticket is required
to furnish si photograph of himself,
unmounted, which is pasted on the
tickets for purposes of identification.
They also Issue similar season tickets
for periods lasting from 15 days to a
year at varying prices. While in Belgium I purchased for myself and family second class season tickets good
for 15 dnys at $8.20 each and on theBe
tickets travelled from Brussels to Spa,
Ardennes, Antwerp, Ostend, Blacken-
liurg and all the principal points of Interest in Belgium. During those 15
days I must have travelled 2000 miles
and wus enabled to return each evening to Brussels. The railway stations
are commodious and sume of them are
magnificent. During my 80 days' travel In Belgium I was never Into five
minutes. The governmenl also operate wllh greal credit to themselves
and Willi satisfaction to the people lhe
telephone* and telegraph*', all of these
nlllltles working one with the olher.
lly Ihis plan there is a wonderful saving in expense, since all mny frequently bo operated under one management."
Nothing Short of Guarantee From
United States Can Quell Mutiny Among Islanders.
New York, Sept. 18.���Commercial
ami financial men who have interests
in Cubai continue to watch the situation Ip the Island. Cables sent to Havana requesting answers to vital ques-
Uoiib. were replied lo In an unsatisfactory manner and this gave rise to
comment, especially in Wall street.
The opinion there was that all cables
were being subjected to as strict censorship. The Times Bays that the almost universal opinion among financiers yesterday was that annexation
was lhe only real solution of the problem. Tho Times quotes the heud of
one of the leading Cuban banking
houses as Baying it wae rumored In
Havana that the commercial element
In Cuba advocates free trade with the
United States. If this is guaranteed
there will be no opposition to annexation. President Palma Is stubborn,
but has no backbone. He has taken
the advice of men outside of the government and been false to hlB friends
in the cabinet.
An arbitration board should be
formed in Washington and sent down
to Havana by the (president, to remain
for at least five years. Taft will say
and do, when he - arrives In Havana,
what will make the leaders of both
sides squirm. Both sides are to blame
and have committed serious faults.
The conditions are chaotic today, because both Bides are scared and do not
know what will happen when Taft gets
there. While members of the revolutionary junta expresB their pleasure
over the suspension of hostilities, they
declare in positive terms that there
would he no permanent peace unless
the Liberal demands that the last elections be annulled are granted.
"We will lay down our arms." said
General Guerra. "when negotiations
for peace are begun, but we cannot
accept terms that do not include the
annullment of the elections held last
December, nor will we accept such a
promise from the Palma government
unless annullment is guaranteed by
the United States."

DEFRAUDING TDE MINT
Weigher of Gold Arrested for Falsifying United States Mint Scales and
Pocketing $18 a Day.
Philadelphia, Sept. IS. ���Charged
With falsirying the neales used In
weighing gold, Thomas \\V llurff. for
12 years assistant weigher and representative of the coiner at tho United
Suites mini in this city, and a respected citizen or Woodbury, N: J., was arrested yesterday by Secret Service

simple one. A copper planchette, or
unstamped iienny, wns either fastened
on the bottom, or laid in the pan uf
the scales on which the gold Is weighed. One of Ihese plancheltea weighs
11-1011 of an ounce, which la tlie exact

In gold, and figuring on aix weighs a
day. Ihe loss properly was $18. llurff,
It ls said, had been adding the disc
lo scales for several months. Under
the law the weigher Is allowed 10-100
of an ounce shortage in weight for
wear on each 0000 ounces of the gold.
Not Enough Evidence to Convict Dan
Cameron of Neglect.
Dan Cameron, charged with neglecting his horses, was tried this morning
by the mayor and Alderman Selous,
justices of the peace.
The evidence showed that the feed
of the horBes cost their owner $5.35
from August 21 to September 6, about
17 cents a day for each horse, up to
the time when they were fed by the
police.
Dr. Frank, V. S., testified thait the
horses showed signs of lack of food*
for a considerable time.
Cameron swore that he had visited
and fed his horses regularly, although
he admitted having been drunk for a
part of the time.
There being not sufficient evidence
to warrant a conviction the case was
dismissed, Magistrate Selous remarking that tie was not satisfied as to the
truth of Cameron's evidence.

WILL DOLT THE TICKET
Winston  Churchill  Out  for Oovernor
on Unique Platform���The Contest
Makes Deep Impression.
Concord, N. H., Sept. 18���The Republican state convention which assembled here today is one of the mo*t
notable gatherings of Its kind which
the Granite state has ever seen, marking the close ot a campaign that has
attracted  attention far  beyond  state
lines.
Winston Churchill, the novelist, ls
responsible for much of the Interest
in the campaign. He is out for governor on a unique platform. H- attacks the Boston & Maine railroad,
and declares that Its Influence In New
Hampshire politics ts paramount. He
says that this influence was largely
gained through tho issuance of free
passes by the railroad to members ot
the legislature and others and declares
that such passes should be abolished.
He also advocates a direct primary
law, tax reform measureB and the
elimination of the lobby ln the legis
lature. Since the beginning of Mr.
Churchill's campaign almost the sole
topic of discussion In political circles
has been the free pass question.
That Mr. Churchill cannot win the
nomination Is the general opinion
among those well informed Ji to the
situation. But the platform that Mr.
Churchill is supporting has undeniably
made a deep impression. The result
of this probably will be that the convention will declare for a change of
the existing relations between the
railroad system and the lawmakers,
and will nsk the senatorial and representative districts to select candidates
in sympathy with the reform. The
platform may be expected also to declare agalna tthe lobby, and probably
point Its finger ln scorn to the Salem
race track legislation. The taxation
question is likely to be met by resolu
tionB providing for the establishment
of a commissioner on equalisation.
There has been some gossip that
Churchill, In the event of hla falluje
to win thc nomination, might bolt the
Republican ticket, make an alliance
with th'.- Democrats and run at the
head of a fusion ticket. There ls be
lieved to be small chance, however,
mat this will occur Former United
Stntea Senator W. E. Chandler le
Churchill's political adviser, a'nd It is
not thought that Mr. Chandler would
sanction a bolt from the Republican
ticket.
Taft Party's Progress.

a* the location is most dangerous because of the reefs and streams. The
tug Iroquois, the largest on the coast
and the most powerful ln Honolulu,
will probably leave for Midway tomorrow.
New York. Sept. 18.���Shipping men
were much Interested today in a cable
despatch from Toklo which stated that
the Canadian Pacific Railway company's steamer Empress of China, on
arriving there Sunday, reported that
considerable changes have taken place
In- Pacific ocean currents. They regarded thiB as accounting for the
stranding of so many steamers recently ln the vicinity of the Hawaiian
islands. The steamers Manchuria and
Mongolia and the United States transports Thomas and Sheridan have met
this fate. The Toklo despatch adds
that the report ot tidal changes harmonises with the Kobe observatory
reports of a great earthquake In mld-
Paclflc which preceded the convulsion
at Valparaiso by several hours. This
ls believed to have made Important
changes tn the bed of the ocean.
New York, Sept. 18.���The German

tons net. The British steamer Falshun was built at Lelth In 1887 and
registered 1425 tons net. The British
steamer San Cheung was built at
Hongkong tn 1902 and is of 389 tons
register. She Is owned by the Cheung
On Steamboat company of Hongkong.
The British steamer Monteagle arrived at Hongkong on September 14
from Vancouver and Honolulu. She
registers 3425 tons net and was built
at New Castlo ln 1899.
Takes Wise Precaution*.
An old reader, on perusing In these
columns some recent articles on swimming, writes us to say that has, in his
time, saved three persons from death
by drowning, says Saturday Night, although he does not consider himself
a particularly good swimmer. But he
makes one excellent suggestion when
he relates the method he adopted. Instead of jumping in empty-handed he
always seised a stick or a piece of
board, which he tttrust into Ihe clutch
ot the drowning peruon, und the rest
was easy. Ho wa�� tn no danger himself and easily drew tho drowning person to safety. A iierson may be very
far gone, yet will clutch a stick and
hung on. This ls a sensible method
which, If followed, would save the
lives of many who drown lu attempting to rescue others.

INDUSTRIAL FUTURE OF NELSON.
There are Increasing evidences,
week by week, of ihe prospective importance of the city of Nelson ay an
Industrial center and these cannot but
be gratifying io the stalwart pioneers
who have staked their all on the
future of the city in the belief that,
in importance antl growth, il will make
good. Not only in the improvement
in conditions affecting the mining industry is there assurance of a large
increase in the population and business of the city, but in other respects
it would seem that Nelson is to
achieve fame and fortune. Kor the
stability of trade conditions, the city
will, of course havo to depend largely
upon ihe development of the mineral
resources of the district of which it is
mitutviUy and geographically the center and the distributing point. But as
on auxiliary of these and an Important
addition to the assured prospects of
the city as an Industrial center, there
are already under process of construction several mills ami manufacturing
establishments that will contribute
largely  to iis industrial growth.
The construction of the sawmill al
Procter by ihe Wattsburg Lumber
company, while n few miles out ot
town, will be, for all practical purposes, a Nelson industry. This mill
will employ a large number of hands
who will draw their supplies from the
city and who will naturally spend
their spare time aud money in here.
Adding to this tlie probability of almost immediate construction of the
MeGoldrick mill, almost within the
ciiy limits, the extension oi manufacturing industries is already an assured
fact. The natural advantages of tin1
site are an Ind uee men I to capital to
invest here and there would seem tu
be no reason why anyone need feel
apprehension as lo ilie ultimate destiny of the city.
These Industries are, however bul
the forerunnerH of many others of a
variety nnd importance that must
augur well for the huh of lhe Kooteuays. The Canadian is authorized to
state that, Within a month, there will
be commenced here the construction
of a building to he used ns a pickling
nnd canning factory..
This has boon brought about hy the
advertising in foreign newspapers or
a well known realty broker, and ample
capital is behind the venture. The
promoters will be in the city In a
short time to select the site for the
new undertaking and to make contracts with the ranchers and gardeners of the adjacent territory for their
next year's production,
This will open a new field for lhe
horticulturist and will tend to introduce variety into the experiments
made among gardeners, and other tillers of the soil, who are now confining
their experiments and product almost
���exclusively to fruits.     Tbat    the val
leys along the line of the lake and
rivers are adapted to produce plentifully all kinds of vegetables and garden products suitable for pickling, has
been well known but the attention of
the growers has not been called to the
(Risibilities of these things because of
the unsatisfactory marketing facilities.
To have, at their very door, a factory
hungry for all the product of the farm
will spur many to employ additional
labor and cultivate larger areas. Thus,
whatever may be the ultimate settlement of the labor problems of the
Kootenays, an extensive addition to
the population may be confidently
looked for In the near future.
The pickling industry will naturally
lead to the establishment of canning
industries and much more fruit than
is available for shipment to outside
markets, in a fresh state, will become
useful for canning purposes.
Ii can scarcely be conceived that a
distriet with the agricultural and horticultural possibilities of the Kootenay should long escape the notice of
those seeking investment of their cap-
ital in such enterprises as these we
discuss. At the same time, credit is
due those who have entered into correspondence and correctly represent-
<d these possibilities to the prospective investors. Let the campaign be
continued. The publicity that has
been given the city has already borne
good fruit and the energetic band of
citizens who have been spending their
time and money to attract attention
lo Neison are reaping their reward.
And while ihey are reaping their reward, the city will profit also and it
behooves all classes to enter heartily
into the effort to make Nelson what
il may easily become, the banner city
oi iin- Interior <>f the province.
When the city has in operation, its
own power plant and is iu a position
in inter the marke! as a supplier of
motive energy, there will still be new
fields to conquer. There need be no
misgiving as to the outcome of this
enterprise and the steady and stable
growth of the city should encourage
all lo take a fresh and rosy view ol
the possibilities that are hovering
within such easy reach of the loyal
citizen.
CUBAN  REVOLUTION.
Notwithstanding the repealed at-
tompts tu belittle tin- importance or
iin- revolution in Cuba there seems to
be no doubt that matters there an*
assuming an attitude that is menacing to the peace of the Americnn republic which is acting in the capacity
oi a protector among these recently
"rescued" islands of tin* Atlantic
ocean. The fact that two American
warships have already been despatch-
id to the Cuban waters and that at
I. ast two more have received hurry
instructions to prepare for emergency
�� rders, is In itself, suflclent evidence
of the gravity of the situation. Tbe
latest despatches, indicating that the
revolutionists have attacked British
property in order to force the hand of
the Hritish authorities and compel the
intervention of the American government at this critical juncture, shows
that the Cuban revolutionists nre by
no means fools and that they are prepared to submit their case to the highest   tribunals available.
The chief complaint seems to be
that the election of the president of
ih<- so-called Cuban republic was corrupt ly effected nud that the responsible elemenl, the more intelligent
class of the electorate there, were defrauded of their rightH and suffer a
corresixinding Injustice. If this Is the
sum total of their    grievance    It can
easily he put aright and the Cuban
authorities are certainly to blame If
ihey are attempting to maintain an
authority which was corruptly gained.
The matter has uow evidently assumed international importance and
will no doubt be threshed out to a
finish. There can be no wish on the
part of any true American to uphold
the authority of a corruptly elected
president and we may reasonably hope
that the difficulty will be adjusted
without resort to extreme annexation
measures such as were proposed at
the commencement of the revolt. If
however, these must take place we
hope that the matter will be summarily dealt with and the peace of the
Islands bordering on the American
e rntinettt assured.
EDITORIAL COMMENT.
If the Liberals are "caught napping'* after all the din and roar about
early elections that is being fed into
their ears by the party press it Is a
positive proof that the resurrection
will slip by without the Liberals being aware of the incident.
We know now why those election
rumors fill the air every little while.
It Is to give opposition papers a text
upon which to write editorials on high
finance and show how to decrease taxation, increase expenditure and still
show a husky surplus.
Visitors from outside points coming to
the fair are invited to call at The
Canadian office any day and see us
squat our burning thoughts into something less than a quarter of a million
copies, all for five cents.
If you see It in the corporation
press take it with a grain of salt.
Watch our smoke.

Bid of 97    Received���Council    Passes
Bylaw   Regulating   Cost   of   City
Water for All Purposes.
The regular meeting of the city
council latu night was marked by two
important matters. After many years
Alderman SelouB secured the passing
of a bylaw regulating the use of city
water, and Induced the council to record its resolution not to compete
with cheap water power against Its
own electric light power.
An offer of _t7 for the new city de*
beniures was received through McDer-
mid & McHardy, but no immediate action Was taken. I
The meeting was called ubout 8:31).
There were presenl Mayor Gillett, ln
the chair, and Aldermen Hume, Se-
lotllj Rote, Irving and Annable. The
minutes of the last meeting were read
iinil  confirmed.
The finance commiltee repotted recommending a* payroll of $5M.25, which
was passed,
Alderman Hose introduced a deputation of the employees of the C. P. It.
machine shops, who came to complain
of the slaughter house In the vicinity
of the machine shops.
.1. II. Boyes stated that the grievance- was one of two years' standing,
The men had thought they must deal
with the provincial ,ri vernment. Por
tba!. reason no definite action had
heen taken earlier. They asked that
the slaughter house be removed, and
Stated that the only alternative for
the men was to leave their employment, to the number of 150.
Messrs. Johnston and Mortimer also
spoke, endorsing Mr. Boyes' statements. The complain! was then referred to the city medical health officer.
A letter from McDermid & .Mcllardy
on behalf of Kastern clients was read,
offering 97 for the new Issue of debentures.
The city clerk stated that there was
a verbal agreement made by ex-Mayor
Houston with Wood, Gundy & Co., the
purchasers of the first power plant
debentures, that they should have an
opportunity to bid. The mayor thought
that fiueb opportunity should be given
if no delay were caused.
B. B. McDermid spoke briefly, stating that their clients declined to pay
any more and had advised him that
the debenture market is very weak at
present.
The  city   clerk   read  a letter   from
Wood, Gundy & Co., dated August 21,
asking to-be kept informed as  to future issues  of  city of  Nelson  debentures.
Other business was proceeded  with.
A  letter  from   Mrs.   E.   C. Godfrey,
on behalf of the Children's Aid society
asked   for  assistance  In  the   building
of the new home. The letter was filed.
A letter from the Nelson Iron works
asked permission    to   move    a water
motor to the main building.
The mayor had already ordered inquiry to be made for particulars.
The   police  commissioners   reported

recommending the following lalavleii
for the force: The chief, $110 per
month; Sergeant Pltchford, $90, and
Constable WiBhtman, J90. The present salaries are respectively $100, |��5
and %mi.
All the aldermen testified the fidelity and efficiency of the force and the
report of the commissioners was
adopted.
Alderman Irving drew attention to
the need of completing the crossing on
the east side of Josephine street,
crossing Carbonate.
In reply to Alderman Irving the
mayor stated that permission had been
given by the managing director of the
fair to agents of cigarettes to post
signs on the fair ground fence. As he
wbb Informed that a revenue was derived from It he did not wish to Interfere, although he disliked It, at
others did.
BylaW No. 172, to amend the water
works bylaw nf 19110, was introduced
by Alderman Si-Ioiih
The bylaw provides for a new metre
rate ns follows:
Meter Rates.
Per 100 Cubic Ft,
GOO to   6,000 cubic feet 22 cents
6,000 to 10,000 cubic feet 20 cents

For 4-ln. meters, per month..
For  (i-ln.  meters,   per month..
A discount of 15 per cent iB allowed
for payment by the 15th of the month.
The bylaw received    Its   first   and
second   readingB   und   was   committed
with the mayor in the chair.
The first clause brought up the
whole interminable question of the
city water supply and Its use, with
Alderman Selous In a minority of one.
Alderman Selnus' position was endorsed by the city* engineer, who stated that of the 2.000,000 gallons of water consumed daily half could be saved
If there were no water motors In uee.
Alderman Selous: The object of this
bylaw, frankly, ls to compel all large
motor users to take electric power
and at the same time enable users of
small motors to continue with water.
No sane man will buy electric power
at $3 per horsepower when we are
selling water power at $1.25.
The 'bylaw was finally read a third
time and Alderman Selous gave notice
of final adoption.
Alderman Selous moved that the
city engineer be instructed to install
water meters wherever he thought it
advisable.    The motion was adopted.
The September payroll was authorized and the council adjourned to October 1.
