Will Appoint Electrician
Authorized by Council Without Dissent���Opposition to Salaries
of Police Withdrawn.
A permanent appointment to the position of city electrician will probably be
made tonight. At last night's meeting
of the city council 74 applications were
read and none of the members felt equal
to making a choice without consideration.
K. A. Smith was not an applicant. In
a letter to the council he defeaded himself against charges and insinuations
public and private, and gave a lucid account of the present condition of the
city property of which he has had
etiarge. A resolution, passed without a
dissenting voice, authorized a testimonial to him from the city. He will remain In office until Nev. 15th unless relieved earlier by the arrival of bis successor, and will leave the city with no
stain on his professional reputation.
The monthly payrolls were passed.
Aid. Selous, after explaining his former
course, allowed his protest to lapse.
The council met at 8 o'clock with the
mayor In the chair, and Aldermen
Hume, Selous, McMorris and Irving
pies. nt. Aid. Annable and Rose came
In later.
The first business taken up was the
hearing of applications for the position
of electrical engineer. The city clerk
Btated that there were between 50 and
75 and read the advertisement.
The first was from H. C. Hullls offering to assume the position with all
duties and engage his own help, for all
of which the city now pays |650 per
month, for $500 per month.
Among the other applicants were II.
C. Cummins, G. C. MacKay, Frank
Cellner, and J. II. lloyes, of Nelson, F.
G. Poultun, of Williams Siding, and J.
S. Grentell, of llowser Lake.
The reading lasted over two hours.
The applications came from all parts
of Canada and from nearly every state
In the American union. The reading
was relieved by occasional uuconsclous
humor. One applicant declared that he
had no habits of any kind. Several described themselves as hustlers, one
sent his photograph, two stipulated
that tenure of oflice should not depend
upon political favor, others carefully
gave height and weight.
Aid. Annable suggested a reference
to the fire, water and light committee
to select the best ten for further consideration, to report at tho next meeting of the council, bnt it was decided
to go through with the list which was
finished al 10.20, tho applications numbering 74.
Aid. Aunuble's motion was then offered again.
F. A. Smith stated that h..; bad another engagement to begin on Nov. 15,
hut would be available if wanted until
The   resolution was  then  carried.
The finance committee reiwrtod
recommending the monthly payrolls of
all Hie city employees.
Tho clerk asked for Instructions as
to the payment of salaries of the city
electrician and tho city pollco force.
A letter from the city solicitor slated
that tho police wore entitled to payment of the salaries fixed by the police
commissioners unless and until appeal
Is taken to tho lieutenant governor In
Aid. Selous, after explaining tho Intention of tho motion refusing payment
to the police force, again expressed his
disapproval of the act of tho commissioners.
On mollon of Aid. Hume tho salaries
of the police force were passed as
Aid. Selous moved to add F. A.
Sinllh's name to tho pay roll a( tho
usual rate, disregarding the date of his
formal reappointment.
The report as a whole was then
adopted, after tramway employees were
Tho     following    letter     from  F.   A.
Smiili waa  then read:
"Sirs:���At    the    present    crisis    In
which the position of Rlectrlcal Engineer, for this city Is, I feel It my duty
to put n few facts before you, which
I hope will enlighten you as to the true
state of affairs.
"With regard to the Tramway situation, I might call your attention to
the fact, that the returns for this year,
up to date, show an increase In revenue
of $1200 over the same period of last
year (notwithstanding that two months
of this year the cars wore not running
at all.)
"I think I may fairly claim that this
great Increase In revenue, is largely
due to the efficiency, and reliability of
the service, under my superintendence.
"The expenditure in connection with
the Tramway may appear large but
this Is explained by the fact that extensive improvements of a permanent
character were necessary. In order to
plac the system In a sound state of repair. ,   |
"In winding armatures alone, I believe tho city spent about $1800, whereas I have done the work this year, at
an expense of not more than $100 to
"In closing my remarks in this department I have no hesitation In saying that the city has now a tramway
system which Its people appreciate, and
the public are not afraid to patronize.
"With regard to the electric light,
and power department, everything has
been most satisfactory, up to about
three weeks ago, since then it has been
most satisfactory, though through no
fault of mine. This Is largely due to
the draft tube' being gone, and the
governor not working at the itower station, whereby it Is difficult to maintain
a high efficient voltage. The voltage
we have been receiving lately has
been fluctuating from 25 per cent, above
to 25 per cent below normal voltage,
but even under the aforesaid conditions I maintain this abnormal fluctuation ia quite unnecessary, and with
stricter attention to the hand manipulation of the governor, could be reduced, at least, within 10 per cent
either way. Not having the power station under my control I cannot be held
responsible for this unsatisfactory supply of current, which causes so many
complaints from the citizens; such as
for burnt-out lamps, low candle power,
and variable speed of motors.
"With regard to my ability I submit
that nothing has transpired which lias
shown it to be at fault, and my practical handling of the work, in both departments (notwithstanding Insinuations to the contrary) cannot but have
been satisfactory to an unprejudiced
"I defy anyone to point to an instance where the city haa been put to
any expense through any negligence,
default, or want of caTo or knowledge
on my part, since I have been in its
"I hereby maintain that I am entitled
to BUbmit theso facts to you, in Justice
to myself, and those that have supported me, as to my work and ability.
I have the honor to be, sirs,
Your obedient servant,
F.  A. SMITH."
In reply to the mayor Mr. Smith stated that when he took charge of the
tramway the equipment was in very
bad condition. In regard to the flucta-
tlon of the power he said It was the
sole cauBO of the rapid deterioration of
lamps and the unsatisfactory running
of motors. He thought the tluctatlon
was due to carelessness.
To Aid Irving he said he had rewound two armatures, and prevented
others from burning out.
All exonerated Mr. Smith from blame
for the unsatisfactory supply of light
and powor.
The mayor read a telegram sent to
tho Allls-Cbalmers-Hullock company to
which as yet there is no reply.
Mr. Smith statod that he had replied
to a personal letter from the head engineer of the company aaklng for information as to the state of the plant
and Its work.
The Mayor���I can't believe that Ule
true stato of affairs Is known even yet
to the head office of tho company.
Aid. Selous���Mr. Hullls says that he
is working very hard to control It.
F. A. Smith���I have had the same
trouble elsewhere, and never allowed
tho fluctatlon to exceed 7 per cent. If
It had reached 10 pur cent. I'd have lost
my position.
Aid. Irving drew attention to lack of
light at tho junction of linker and
Vernon streets.
Mr. Smith asked that a recommendation to him be authorized by resolution,
which waa passed.
The Are, wator and light committee
was then Instructed to make any recommendation they Judged proper In regard to the appointment of electrical

Gold    Imports   Afford    Relief   in    New

Now York, Oct. 29���Great assistance
in relieving the limit,rial stringency Is
expected to result from the large engagement of gold for import made, and
from the further large imports which
it Is believed will be made within the
uext few weeks. The movement of
American crops to European markots
together with the revival of a demand
for copper abroad will give the United
States large credits with foreign bankers and these can be available for
bringing in gold, It la confidently believed, to tho fullest extent that may be
necessary. It waa announced that several of the banks which were compelled
to suspend last week have about perfected their plans to re-open for business.

Winnipeg, Oct 29.���In Winnipeg 1
lng grain men say that they cannot borrow money from the banks to carry
wheat across the lakes from Fort William, and that all wheat must be paid
for when it goes Into store at Fort
An unprecedented thing happened
last week in the grain trade. A vessel
chartered to come in light from Cleveland for Chicago, was detained four
days at Fort William, unable to load because the owners of the wheat could
not pay for it and the bank would not
let It be loaded until it was paid for.
Another vessel, chartered and coming
In light to load, had to have her expenses paid and leave light for Duluth,
and load there for exactly the same
reason. The men chartering could not
pay the bank in advance and the bank
would not let It go until it waa paid,
except to the milling companies who
are still buying high grade wheat in
small quantities on the banks. It haa
not been possible to sell cash wheat for
the past ten days.
Prominent grain men, asked as to the
possible result of this tighteafag of
purse strings of the banks, said that the
chances are, if it continues, that elevators all over the country will cease buying wheat, as a matter of fact, some nf
them are quietly doing that now without making any announcement One
man said: "I would not be surprised
if at the end of the present week all
but mill elevators had ceased to buy
throughout the west."
A prominent commission man said:
"We have notified our customers that
we can no longer make advances to
them and allow their wheat to remain
In store at Fort William. For the future
we will have to ask them to sell a*
soon as their papers are completed."

who had  at the time been  away on  a

At this Juncture, the Hun. Joseph Mai
tin. K. C. stopped into the broach and
gave  ihe   public  some   pine-stump  law,
without   having   consulted  the   author!
ties   and   precudenta   hearing   upon   thi
matter,  and  indeed  contrary  to them
all.        His "plne-Hiunip"   law    Is    that
the     Government      Is    constitutionally
bound to assume responsibility for tin
action of His  Honor;  and if his action
is disapproved  by them, they must express such  disapproval    by resigning

Th*.  anirl     tinners for.   some '
lime rang the changes uicin this as-
pect of the matter. Latterly, however,
ihe former paper has been contending
only tor a merely technical responsibility  by  the government.
In the said article of Mr. Macintosh,
the whole matter is calmly discussed in
Its various bearings and in the light of
Mi., .aliens eases of similar reservations which have occurred since con-
federatlon and of the action thereon
taken by the various .Ministers of Justice which Canada lias had. He cites
flu- various cases in which bills have
in tin- pas! been reserved by Lieut.-
I lev, nuns and the anion thereon
which lias been taken ami the views expressed by ihe successive Ministers of
Justice Sir    John    MacdOnald,    lion.
Edward Blake, lion. James Macdonald,
Sli Oliver Mowat, etc. i��� ii���. course
--i  He- paper we find the following:
"In isTj. a bin passed bj the Provln-
4lal Legislature of British Columbia
was reserved, the opinion or ihe Attorney-General (McCreight) being thai II
was a contravention of the Instructions furnished to governors of colon
i.-.-        Sir   John   Macdonald,  Minister  of
Justice,   iSeptember istl'i reported 'thai
fin- Imperial Instructions Issued to (lev
amors   of   Colonies,   and   which   a.'"in
panled their commissions direct from
Hi ��� Queen, are not applicable to the
rases of Lieutenant-Governors or f'rov
inns of Canada? who receive tlieit
commissions from the Governor-General, under ihe Gteat Seal of Canada, nnd
in whom Instructions are to be com
munlcated by the terms of those commissions, from the Governor-General
nf Canada iii-Conneil. or through any
member of the Council.'
On the lillth of November, 1882, a
report of the Privy Council of Canada
called ihe attention or His Excellency, the Governor-General jo the fact
thai in several provinces bills had been
reserved for the Governor-General's as-
Kent by tin (r Lieutenant-Governors,
on tbe advice of their Ministers.' "This
practice Is at. variance with those piin
slides of constitutional Government
which obtain in England and should be
carried out in Canada and the provinces." "The Lieutenant-Governor is not
warranted In reserving any 'measure
for the assent of the Governor-General
on the advice of the Ministers. He
should do so in his capacity as a Gomin
ion oflloer only, and on Instructions from
the Governor-General, it is only in castor extreme necessity that a Lieutenant-
Governor, without such instructions, exercises his discretion as a Dominion of-
flcer in reserving a bill."
Farther on in this paper he continues:
"Hence,   with  the    opinions  or     sir
John Macdonald. lion. Edward Blake,
1.. n. lames McDonald, Hon. Oliver
tuowail (and others could be quoted) to
guide those representing the Crown,
there is little reason for the extreme
agitation in connection with the action,
of Lieutonant-Guvernur Dunsmuir, i i
reserving or withholding assent to a
bill, the purport of which was known
to be objectionable to Ministers at Ottawa, having been disapproved of on
several occasions. There was little difference between exclusion bills and one
ncessitating educational test. The argument that a government should resign, might possess some virtue bad
the Lieiiteiianf-C.overnor been in a position to be advised and refused to take
such advice; but to contend that the
ease under discussion is analogous to
those necessitating resignation, when
by an adverse vote Ministers must, constitutionally, cross to the left of Mr.
Speaker, is clearly a misapprehension
of the British North America Act, constitutional procedure and recarded
precedent. The Lieutenant-Governor
was no doubt acting under Instructions
of a general nature with references in
all measures passed by the Legislature, threatening to conflict with treaty
obligations, rights, privileges or any
tentative negotiations with foreign contracting powers. That the constitution
was unduly strained is a fallacy, fpr
those who condemn either tbe Lieutenant-Governor or the Provincial Government, are likely to appear to disadvantage should all the circumstances reach
the public through  official channels."
We shall hear very little farther of
the stuff of which we have bad so
much in the past of Mr. McBride's responsibility for the action of the Lieutenant-Governor from any person who
will carefully peruse this paper. The
paper is a full and able presentation
of the law and practice of the past as
bearing  on   this   subject.

French Sketch of Moroccan Towrr That
Has  Borne  Brunt of  Wars
and Revolutions.
Parte, Oct. 89.���Before Casablanca 1b
forgotten���or rebuilt, for It is all but
destroyed���it is interesting to know
what It is like. It was not all a Moorish city tike the others. U was not
built in the middle ages, when the
Moors of Spain transmitted their culture to Africa, and Morrom Huished at
the I'yrenes. There was nothing romantic in its history or picturesque In its
situation, it was just a modern seaport resulting from inefficient efforts of
Moors and Europeans to trade together.
In lime it might have come to something, as ft stands at the dividing line
of North and South Morocco, which
are two very different countries and
need means of communication with each
other as well as with the rest of the
world. It Is about equi-distant from the
two capitals In the interior���Fez and
Marrakesh���and sixty miles, more or
1���1, along the coast from Kabat to the
north and Mazagan to the south. There
was and is reason for a trading port
there, and the harbor, bad as it is, is
the only one along this part of the Atlantic coast.
Casablanca, of course, is the Spanish
name, which, as usual, represents no
present reality. When you come in
from the ocean you see nothing but a
line of high gray walls, dirty and spotted where the plaster has fallen from
the stones. A great gale in the walls
open to you its doors, lined with tin
rusted by the sea spray. It was here
the French soldiers were caught by
treachery, and had to fight for their
lives, the massacre of the Moors being
the natural wind-up. Inside the gates
ail Is flat and monotonous, narrow and
crowded   and  dirty   and melancholy.
To see the town you have to go up to
ihe roof terrace of some of the European houses. Then you discover that
the city has three parts, each with Its
own color. Around you is the Medina���
?.he real white city���with new high
houses, half Moorish, half European,
built by Europeans who have come
here In quest of fortune or to aid their
country's diplomacy. Some of these
houses are Inhabited by the wealthier
Moors, who have been quick to appreciate modern comfort and would be
glad to live in peace and comfort.
Next comes the Intermediate quarter
���the Mellah���where the Jews, one-third
of the town, live together in houses all
painted blue from roof to mudsill of the
door on the narrow tortuous streets.
Then, encircling all, without plan or
order, is the Tnaker���the mud-plastered reed huts of the Moorish populace.
When   the   rains    of     winter   fall,   the

Marconi   Admits   Many   Improvements
Still Necessary.
Halifax, Oct. 29.���The Marconi system of trans-Atlantic cyuiinunicalioa is
now fairly well established and with
every intermission station at Glace Hay
In constant operation since the opening
a week ago.
Marconi now claims that he has no
intention whatever of competing with
the cable companies for some time to
come, until his trims-Atlantic stations
at all events are better equipped to
successfully handle the great bulk of
business he is constantly deluged with.
This will mean until Cape Cod and
I'oldhu stations are constructed and until machinery of all stations are duplicated in every detail.
The most serious difficulty is the inability of the system to trunsniit and
receive messages at the same time,
necessitating moving operations from
one room to another at intervals and
admits of some confusion arising in
operation of the two stations in communication.
It is also somewhat of a bar to absolute accuracy for If for any reason the
receiving operator Is unable to Interpret the messuge being sent out, It is
impossible for him to acquaint the
sender, until the station is prepared to
Loss of time entailed because of this
Is manifest. Marconi, however. Is satisfied that this can be remedied.

W'm. Irvine and family have returned
from a two weeks' trip to the coast
cities. While away they visited Vancouver. Victoria, Seattle and Portland.
Mr. Irvine made a careful study 'if business conditions on the coast, and is

In Portland particularly he found this
to be the case.

The autumn meetinsa of tho West
Kootenay Farmers' Institute are being
held this week. A meeting was held
at Riverview, at Jas. Tarry's, yesterday,
one is being held at Harrop today, and
another will be held in the court house
here tonight at 8 o'clock. The speakers will tie Miss Rose, of Guelph, T. A.
Prydon. of Victoria, and J. R. Anderson,  deputy  minister of Agriculture.
I. O. O.  F. Social.
The social evening In the Oddfellows'
hall last night proved a very enjoyable
function. There was a large attendance including many visiting Oddfellows. The programme of music and
speeches was grea'ly enjoyed, all the
more perhaps because it was almost entirely impromptu. The refreshments
were not at all impromptu. That department had received careful attention
and was an untpialified success.
Geo.  B.  Howard Co.
It is Indeed a relief to witness a performance like that presented by the
Geo. P. Howard Co. last night after being tortured almost to death by the various alleged dramatic companies that
have visited Nelson during the past
summer. Geo. P. Howard Is a capable
actor and he has surrounded bJmseli
with a well-balanced company. Not
only has Mr. Howard exhibited discretion in his selection of a company, but
he has also consulted the tastes of the
public in the clasti of plays he Is producing. "Christopher, Jr." is a clever
farce comedy, but no more enjoyabk
than that piece < acted (or tonight,
The Nominee." Miss Betty Jonson,
who takes the leading female part, is
an actress of considerably above aver-
sge  ability,    The  company  should be
we|] patronized for the rest of the week.

The play opens with the fete day
at Pompeii. Nydia. the blind girl, wanders through the streets selling flowers.
Qlaucus, the noble Athenian, converses
with her but does not guess that she
loves him, for to him she Is but a child,
and his afTecIlons are centered on lone,
the beautiful Neapolitan maiden. She
and her brother, Apaecides, have been
pupils of Arhac.'s. the Kgytian, and
he, while trying to keep the brother
from becoming a Christian, tries at the
same time to win lone for bis bride.
She, however, loves Glaucus. The interest of the play circles round Arbaces,
the Egyptian, who with his base treachery and cunning makes a strong personality.
The plot is good. The costumes are
typical of that early era, the sandalled
feet, the flowing robes, and the baud of
