As announced yesterday last night's

tram system a remote prospe '. The
meeting was fully attend u nearly
every city official being pi. a it; and
outside tlie call every foot . ,' standing
room wan occupied There1 were prub-
abiy nearly a hundred present, ail told.
The net result tees that while the
substation tire of Saturday morning is
believed to be accidental, there is a
general conviction that the car barn
was destroyed by an incendiary.
The council met at 8 o'clock with
Mayor Taylor in the chair aud Aldermen McMorris, I'atenaude and Hale

Steed came iu later. The chamber

It was resolved that Uie board ol

On motion ot Aldermen McMorris and
sued, the mayor was authorized to ex
uu,Ine under oath any witnesses in con
unction with the tires at the substation
aud car burn.
G. H. Plavle. was sworn as short ham!
reporter.
Oeorga    Blanohard    Johnstone    was
sworn, and tcstilled that at B.18 a. m.
������ Saturday he was told by telephone
from Bonnington tbat there might
trouble on the Hue. Later
llctineclic from the car barn asked foi
direct current Hefore giving it he ask
ed Honnington if everything were all
right, and was told that It was. He
cave dlrecl current. Some time later
he heard a noise "ke a rocket and turn
I,,.. saw un arc about 7 feel in diameter
formed  across  the  switchboard.      Be
telephoned Bonnington to ,'"1 ���**��� <'I"H1

transformers, and threw sand on the
lir" After the cut-off he also poured
waler on It. but to no purpose. Mr.
(Ttsher was present and telephoned tin
fire hall He had previously, a week be
fore, turned on direct current lor the
cat  barn, and It had worked ull right.
Sunday nlghl and yesterday morning
up to two o'clock he had worked ut the
substation on R. C. Brown, Illliug the
transformers with oil, preparatory to
starting the light, power and tramwaj
service. H' C. Bullis was also present.
He and Others were iu tlie car barn Ire
quently   on   Sunday   and   Sundny   night
working in the transtormlng room. They
had  a lantern.     No one  smoked.
To. A'd. Procter he said be was In
the cltv's employ under R. C. Brown.
To Aid. Steed he sain he snw no Hre
ln the car burn or tool shop at any time
Sunday night.
When he  lclt tbe  substation yester
day morning R. A. Brown, L. Steel and
H.  C.  Bullis  were there.
Clarence O. Maddock, loreman or the
substation, sworn, said he was in lied
at the time of tlie tire in the substation.
He bad bad four or five year's experience as electrical operator in Newark,
N. J., Spokane, IJonningtou and Nelson.
He said that automatic switches occasionally fail; when they do Uiere is
danger of explosion and fire. He corroborated .Johnstone's evidence that
eucli switch container held more than
a gallon of oil. He described the arrangement of the substaUon. He had
never before seen an oil switch give
trouble. Assuming Johnstone's evidence
U> be correct, the trouble must have
been caused from elsewhere. The
switch should work automatically. A
short circuit at the car barn miglu have
caused the blowing out. The circuit
breakers were ot copper. He had never
seen them fly out belore.
Since Saturday's fire he had been repairing at the substation, helping to fill
transformers with oil. The oil is a mineral oil, thin and *.vhite. They filled
two. Oil was scarce in the city. They
obtained a small supply by special request to the C. P. R. company. R. A.
Brown was In charge of half a dozen
city employees. H. 0. Bullis, representing the Allis-Chalmers-Bullock company, was directing.
He deposed that if a switch were
turned on without the transformer cord
being immersed in oil, it would blow
everything   to   pieceB.
They had filled iransrormers Nos. 2
and 3 by 11 p. m. Sunday. Under Mr.
Bullis' direction they gradually warmed
the apparatus and operated until a good
light was supplied shortly betore tlie
fire at Uie car barn. He thought there
was then about 111,000 volts being received from the power plant.
He saw the Hre au minutes before tbe
alarm rang. He had then been alone
for half an hour. Mr. Bullis was the
last to leave. Mr. Turown, Mr. Benneche,
Steel and Sampson had left previously
to go home to bed. Mr. Bullis said he
would be back soon, lie was going down
town. He, Mr. Bullis, had told Mr.
Brown that he would stay all night.
He, Maddock, went over to the fire at
the car barn, after it had been in progress two hours, to notify Mr. Brown
that transformer No. 3 was smoking.
Mr Bullis was at tbe substation then
and remained there. He, Maddock, did
not know what was wrong. Mr. Bullis
remarked that it was punctured. When
lie, Maddock, returned from the tire.
Mr. Bullis was reeling the coils of trans-
former No. 3, and reported Uiat they
were cool: He had cut it off; he tried
it again later, but it smoked again and
he cut it off. No. 2 was all right, and
worked all the time.
To another question he replied tha*
Mr. Bullis left the substatiun very shortly after Mr. Brown and the others.
To Aid. Procter lie said the fire at
the barn seemed to start with a puff of
smoke, then a blaze from the roof near
tlie   l'ront.
R. A. Brown, sworn, gave technical
details of the working of tlie automatic
switch. He thought that nothing that
happened at the car barn could have
caused the flowing out of the oil switch
He believed there must have been a
short circuit behind the board. That
might have beeu caused in various
ways, an overload on the line, the starting of P. Bums and company's motor,
a loose contsct or any of several other
thiugs. The floor should have been of
cement with rubber mats instead of
oiled wood, lie knew of no way of determining positively the cause of the
substation fire. He considered the way
the city's switch boards were wired
mads them a death-trap. Be repaired
them when absolutely necessary but
avoided them when possible. There
should be a lank to run the oil into in
an emergency. As there was not it bad
to run into the gutter. He entirely approved L. Steel's action Saturday morning in running tt off.
It wus generally known at the substation lhat the last oil available in the
city was in the transformers on Sunday
The work was done under him but
under Mr. Bullis' supervision. Mr.
Bu!lls lift lhe silbslutiou yesterday
morning.
At tills jsiiut, the mayor read a copy
or a letter he had sent by special messengers lo Mr. Jackson of the Allis-
Chaliiiers Bullock company, und to R. S
Lennle, legal representative of the company, suggesting that Mr. Bullis be
withdrawn  from the work.
Mr. Brown then detailed yesterday's
proceedings after the withdrawal of Mr.
Bullis. 11.' found Ihe supply of oil seriously depleted. Had a full load been
tinned on tin- transformer would have
burned out and exploded. The result
would have beeu the death of at least
two men.
He Imd found everthlng tight
aboui the transformer; the valves
could not have been opened accidentally; some one had de
llberately emptied it. Those present
h��slde himself were Messrs. Bullis,
Steel and Benneche. All understood
the supply of oil to tbe last available.
Mr. Brown corroborated Maddock as
to what occurred Sunday night at the
substaUon. his leaving and Mr. Bullis'
promise to remain. He, Brown, took
the boys to the Nelson cafe to have
something to eat. There L. Steel saw
and spoke to H. C. Bullis.
Mr. Bullis bad left the station with
a high voltage being received, within a
couple of- thousand of the maximum,
and only Maddock, an operator but not
an engineer, iu charge.
To Aid. Steed he said that the puncture to the transformer would be only
ol the insulation. The smoking might
have been due to loose connection.
To Aid. Procter he said that Mr.
Bullis' first theory was a puncture, his
second a loose connection. Puncture
might be due to damp oil.
The only former puncture he knew of
was due to lightning and had been repaired.
To Aid. Procter he said D"e cf '.hi
boys had brought up a little c: i ( i I i-
to the subBtation. There was .o wi e
to  drink.
Mrs. Streeter told of noticin ; the in
and shouting. She first saw i note's
ing from the back part of die not;
when she went to the back part of her
house flames were bursting trom Uie
rear of tlie barn. She had heard noises
in the car barn all Sunday evening Ull
about 11 o'clock.
H. C. Bullis, sworn, said he was at
the power plant Saturday morning during the fire at the substation and came
in that night. He went to the scene oi
the fire Sunday morning. He had ar
ranged that Mr, Jackson should remain
at tbe plant, while he, Bullis, should
take charge at the substation. When
be reached the station he found Mr.
Brown in charge, expressed his regret
that the cords had been removed, but,
on account of former unpleasantness
with Mr. Brown, lie had not objected,
had,  in  fact, remained outside,
Mr. Brown had begun heating the oil.
At 12.30 he, Bullic. started the current
with 2,000 volts. He then detailed its
gradual increase to 11.000 volts which
it reached at 2.30 a. m. He was es
pecialiy solicitous about furnishing adequate power at that time to the Daily-
News and P. Burns and company. He
then remained for a time, gave careful
instruction to Maddock in whom he had
confidence, and went down town for
cigars. He had been working under a
strain for a long time and needed a
smoke. He ran back up the hill as soon
a., he knew- there was a fire, slackened
his pace when he found it was the cat
barn, and returned to the substation.
He thought Brown had left the sub
station at 1.30.
After his return, perhaps :h""i.'-citart-
ers of an hour, he heard b t or l ng
noise iu the transformer and ah tt It
down. Later, between G aid 6 a. in., he
had tried again with the E4une ie e'ts.
He did not think it specia 1; i angi-t aur.
to operate without oil with a light load,
but  he never risked  it.
He then went down to the Hume for
breakfast, and going to his room, fell
asleep and slept till  noon.
He went up early in the afternoon
and told Mr. Brown he believed the
gurgling, while the noils were cool, was
due to a loose connection, aud his test
confirmed that belief.
It was about 1 p. m. yesterday when
he met Mr. Jackson who was then re
celving a long distance telephone from
Mr. Lennle in Spokane who communicated the letter from Mayor Taylor. He.
Bullis, then suggested to Mr. Jackson
that he, Jackson, take charge for bar-
mony's sake. He, Bullis, waB now remaining at Mr. Jackson's advice to ad
vise and assist. He expected a reprimand from his company but bad taken
chances for the city's sake.
He heard late yesterday afternoon
that the oil had run out of No. 2 transformer. He had no idea of the cause
unless some woikman had stepped on
the valve. He had warned Mr. Brown
of the danger. The same tiling had
happened once before. He knew no
reason why sny workman should have
stepped  on   that   valve.
In conversation with John A. Irving,
later In the afternoon, he had said that
If he had been left there tbe plant
would have run last night, but he denied having said ttiat Brown would
not get ll running.
Asked by the mayor tbe course lie
took at 2 p. m. yesterday morning from
the station to the Nelson Cafe he said
he went by the path through H. C.
Cummins', by Latimer and Stanley
streets.
J. A. Irving, sworn, said he had met
H. C. BulllB yesterday afternoon on the
corner of Ward and Baker strets between 2 aud 3 p. m. Iu addition lu
what Mr. BulllB had given ln evidence
as to dielr conversation, he said Mr.
Bullis had expressed doubt as to there
being any light  last   night.
J. E. Annable said when he first saw
the blaze from his window it was coming strongly from the window of the
workshop at the southeast corner of
the   barn.
H. W. Benneche, foreman of the car
burn, corroborated Blanchard Johnstone's evidence as to the events of
Saturday  morning.    An arc formed on
the controllers of the big car, the circuit breaker blowing out. He could
not be sure of the cause. He had tried
to examine but had no current tor a
test.
As to the rest he corroborated the
evidence of Brown and Maddock, except as to the duration of H. C. Bullis'
visit to the substation yesterday atter-
noon, and the condition of the valve*
or No. 2 transformer which he said
were tight after Mr. Bullis had gone.
He was in the car barn at 11 o'clock
Sunday night with Brown, Steel, Sampson and another. They left at 11; he
locked the door by a spring. He lost
the key later. But access was eaBy as
nearly every board of the floor Ib loose.
There was combustible material in tbe
work shop and also- In the barn, oils,
shellac and other things.
To Aid. McMorris, he Bald that with
the valve open a transformer would
empty In 5 minutes, and the emptying
would not be perceptible. The valve
could be opened by a touch of the toot.
To Aid. Procter he saldjhe fire must
have started in the southwest corner
ol the barn. There was no sign ol lire
when they left. He could Bee no ejt-
planaUon or the car barn fire but Incendiarism. There was no live wire connection into the barn.
Besides  Brown  and himBelf. Jackson
and  Ingram  carried   keys of the  barn.
To   Aid.   Hale   he   said   he   had   not
yet found his key.
L. Steel. Bworn. said he thought
they had been in tlie cafe three quarters of an hour when he met Bullis.
Free minutes later the fire bell rang.
His trip to the car barn Sunday night
was for tools.
He told Mr, Bullis, after the fire, that
he was going to cut off the high tension wire. He could not remember
making the statement attributed to
him by Mr. Bullis. He had no knowledge of the cause of the car barn
fire.
Chief Deasy told of the substation fire,
the advice given to him by W. P. Dickson and his following It. Ab to the car
barn fire, he got the alarm at 3:20,
and saw- a blaze from the door of the
fire hall. When he arrived the building was past saving. There seemed
to him to be two fires, one at the rear
and one in front. That Impression waa
confirmed by investigation after the
fire. He found evidence of saturation
with oil. He had sent Assistant
Chief A. Jeffs. W. S. Pearcy and D.
Herb to the rear of the building with
a line of hose. They reported a very
strong  smell   of  coal   oil.
To Aid. Steed he said he still
thought the fire had started, or been
started in  two different plaA-es.
This concluded the taking of evidence.
City Solicitor W. A. Macdonald. K.
C, then read to the council paragraph
5 of the city's lease, quoted in The
Daily Canadian yesterday, and gave Mb
opinion that the city was not ln any
way liable, if the fire were of Incendiary, electrical or accidental cause,
and that there was no negligence of
civic  employees.
City Clerk Wasson stated that the
city had kept up all Insurance ln force
at the time of the lease, as detailed ln
The Daily Canadian yesterday.
To Mr. Macdonald, R. A. Brown said
that no test was being made Saturday-
morning.
At the request of E. C. Wragge, Mr.
Brown was asked how long Mr. Bullis
had been In the substation yesterday
afternoon. He replied that he could
not say. but certainly not more than
half an hour.
The evidence was ordered to be
transcribed aud  preserved.
On the question of future policy as
to the tramway service Aid. Procter
advocated acquisition by the city if
possible. He thought it might now be
bought   cheaply.
The city solicitor declined to give au
off-hand opinion aB to the situation.
The mayor drew attention to the
city's financial position, with borrowing
powers exhausted. He suggested a
possibility of bonusing the company
with free power. He also doubted the
advantages of municipal ownership as
applied to such a business aB a tramway with very complex relations,
which require the greatest possible
continuity of management.
The city clerk was instructed to
communicate the facts to the Nelson
Electric Tramway Company.
The city engineer wus Instructed,
at the school board's request, to as
slst them ln preparing and planning the
necessary grading of the school groundB
and  adjacent streets.
It was resolved that the tramway
committee confer with the city solicitor aB to tuture plans.
The mayor reported that Mr. Jackson reports the city power plant running entirely satisfactorily.
Aid. Procter urged that experienced
men be employed In all positions connected   with   power   plant.
The mayor defended the present arrangements.
R. A. Brown had no re|Hirt at present, on appointments to positions at
the   power  plant.
Aid. Procter thought a report should
lie ready as early as possible.
Aid. McMorris wished It generally
understood that there was no blame attaching to any employee. The mayor
concurred. R. A. Brown aald that
Blanchard Johhstoone had behaved as
well as possible. Aid. Procter agreed.
The mayor apologized to G. Fisher
whom he had asked to be present aud
forgotten to call. He asked him to put
tn   a   written  statement.
A resolution was passed without dlB-
sent declaring the city employees
blameless In respect of both fires.
R. A. Brown waa authorized to procure a new switch, as the Canada
Zinc Company require, the one borrowed   from  them.
The council then���at 12:05 a. m.���
adjourned to May 4th.
FOR G. T. P. LANDS
New Company to Handle
Towosites
GOVERNMENT APPROVES
Necessary to Give Settlers Clear Title
to Lots Purchased���General
News of Ottawa.
Ottawa, April 28.���Acc'ording to returns brought down in the commons
yesterday a company bas been incorporated known as the Grand Trunk Pacific Town and Development company,
to handle townsites of the G. T. P. K.
The reason given tor this course waa
that the railway company found that
if the management of tbe townsites
were in the hands of the company itself,
difficulty would arise owing to the fact
tbat certain bonds have been Issued
which are secured by trust mortgage
covering all railway and personal property of tbe railway company, and the
company could not therefore give a
clear title to lands. This reason was
recognized by tbe government as valid
as the company is permitted to purchase 13,043 acres of Dominion lands
for townsite purposes by an order-ln-
councll passed January 22 of this year,
the rate being S3 an acre, although tbe
company paid tor them at the rate of
tl an acre. The Town and Development company 1b also permitted to purchase 12,287 acres from homesteaders
which had not been patented, but earn
homesteader had to pay tbe government
SI tor every acre that he had surrendered to tbe company.
The labor department lias received
application tor the appointment, of a
board of conciliation and incestlgation
ln connection with a dispute of employees of tbe mechanical department of
the C. P. R.
No   Light  Tonight
There will be no electric light
or power service tonight and probably not tor several days.
fH. C. Bullis has telegraphed to
Winnipeg asking R. H. Zavltz to
return at once.
* A. Jackson has telegraphed the
* company headquarters at Wilwou-
kee for Instructions.
Meanwhile neither will turn on
tbe current nor consent to the city
electrician's doing so unless the
city   will  take  the   responsibility.

ftdy arises 11 .Mr. burden is tu dictate

Abuui a muiitb ugu a resolution   w a

The real reply of tbe government was

principle ot civil service reform win*
an emphatic declaration tbat ull op*
pi ointments, pi uuiutions uud dlstnlsul
must be at the discretion of ministers.
Uut lu quote Disrueii s memorable remark: "Many things huve happened
sinco iheu." Revelations or inoompe
tency, indolence und dishonesty in matt}
departments have driven tlie ministers
helpleBSiy   trom   ditch   to   ditcb,   vuinly
seeking a tenable line ol defence, Mr.
AyicBwoith's unspeakably silly attempt
to throw tin- blame on civil servants ap
pointed prior tu 1X00 wus laughed oul
of court even by his uwn puny. Mr.
lirodeur could only plead childishly that
he had not bad time since taking over
hia department to become familiar Willi
bin staff.
Tbe ministers were, ln fact, reduced
to tlie alternative of admitting tin Ir
own guilt ur th,. rottenness of tin- bi i-
vice. Naturally they chose th.- latter,
ami. having admitted thai the Bervice
is   helplesa   they  can   do   nothing   but

Insistently and unmistakably demands.
Such a course is not now to Liberal
experience but this last is probabl)
the plainest instance, in facl the whole
Liberal record since 1888 shows ihut
every apparently progressive measure
ui proposal is an Imitation. The tram
continental Railway is hut a duplication or tlie C. P. It.; the present tarifl
is hut a slightly distorted National
Policy, although oar Liberals, like their
British prototypes, repudiate the name

uu All Red loaute and a Hudson's Baj
Railway ate resurrected proposals ol

PROVINCIAL SURVEYING
Potential   Agricultural    Districts   to   Be
Mapped  Out  During  Coming
Summer.
Victoria, April 28.���The programme
for this year's work iu the surveying
of outlying sections of the province has
been practically completed. More of
this will be done during the forthcoming summer than has been attempted
heretofore, it being the intention of the
provincial government to obtain accurate and official knowledge of the different promising agricultural valleys to
the north as far as possible, in order
that settlers may be introduced on a
satislactory   basis.
Surveyor-General McKay stated yesterday that surveys would be carried
on during the warm season in many
parts of the interior of llritish Columbia. Among the principal agricultural
sections to be dealt wilh are the following: Ulackwater (Cariboo,), Lilloet,
Nechaco, Bulkley and Percher Island
(south of the townsite of Prince Rupert).
It was explained tbat the reason the
authorities had selected these sections
for immediate survey work was because they seemed to be the main
point of attraction to the outsider at
the present time. Ou that account it
was desired that the Crown lands in
the respective localities should be officially recorded. Thus it would be possible, on inquiry being made at the department, to give the intending settler
all the information he would require to
enable him to make up his mind as
to whether he would care to settle in
any of the districts. And should he
decide to take up a pre-emption he
would be able to establish a homestead
without the dissatisfactory possibility
of being told, later, that he had not
taken up the land to which he had been
assigned.
Surveyor-General MacKay waa asked whether any steps had been taken
towards surveying the Queen Charlotte Islands. In reply he said that
the matter was under consideration.
Although nothing definite had been
done ft was altogether likely that a party would be s'int there at an early
date.
Last evening a party of six left for
the north In charge of Surveyor Harvey. U Is understood that their intention is to spend the summer at work
through the territory adjacent to the
Skeena River.
The surveyor-general affirms that
there are many applications for land
In the neighborhood of Prfnce Rupert.
This fact has induced the governlnent
to send an expedition to Percher Island, which lies just off the townsite
of the prospective Grand Trunk Pacific
terminus. He says that tlie investigation already accomplished has proved
that tho Island mentioned Is splendidly
adapted to agricultural use. He expects that it will be fully taken Up in
the   not   distant   future.
TENDERS.
SEALED TENDERS, marked "Ten
der," will be received until 12 o'clock
