Fifty Cents a Month
Rales for City Power Not
Yet Settled.
Council Meeting Attended by Large
Delegation���Third Reading of
Bylaw 172 Defeated.
Last night's council meeting lasted
two bout, and a hair, but no part of
it wus wasted. Most of It was dovol-
issi to 11 dismission of rates to be
charged ror power, and generally of
the policy to ho adopted by tho city
towards customers of tbe power plant.
The council met a few minutes after
S with ull present except Alderman An-
iliilsle. Tins niillllles of llle last meeting were road and adopted. The report of the finance committee was received ami adopted.
A report from Ur. Arthur, city medical health officer, on 1'. Hums & Co.'s
slaughter house, stated thut the
changes proposed hy the company
would make it fur less objectionable
ihan ut present, hut, he thought, any
slaughter house on tho present site
would Inevitably be offensive to the
employees of the (J. 1*. It. machine
shops. The report waB referred to
the hoard of health.
Chief Deusy reported for September
two alarms, uo losses, three drills und
many inspections, llo referred to the
very small loss from fires���tl 10���
dining his tenure of office. Ho ugain
urged the prohibition of ashes being
deposited near luflunimable material.
He also strongly recommended an up-
town fire hall, with adequate equipment, to avoid the delay Inevitable under present circumstances In taking
apparatus up the hill. The report was
referred  to  the  fire,  water  aud   light
A letter from the manager of thc
Niisini Iron works asked for Information as to Ihe future policy of tlie
council on the supply of power, especially details as to time, coBt and
method of charging, by metre or otherwise, lie also wished lo know if the
eity would continue to sell water
The eity engineer, In reply to the
mayor, said thut installation would
take place in from HO days to six
vv. p, Dickson suggested that Information he obtained ai once as to the
demand for power from each consumer. ,
11 wus agreed, on the suggestion of
Mr. Dickson, that December 1 he set
as tlie probable date for beginning of
operation of the plant.
As to the question of metres Mr.
Dickson and Mr. McCulloch IkiIIi recommended a minimum rate for power
asked for,' and charge liy metro for
the power actually consumed.
The question In the letter asking if
the city would continue to sell water
power after electrlo power is available,
revived the old question,
The mayor���If we pass the bylaw
Introduced last meeting no one can uf-
ford to use water power.
Alderman Selous���It will he |ionr
business policy tor the owners of an
electric power plum to continue selling water power at a lower rate In
competition. No sane man win buy
electrlo power when he can get waler
power for a third of the cost.
Many motor users were present and
spoke  by  invitation.
R. W. Hinton���We ure anxious for
curly Information, afl we fear long delay in geitlng motors and transformers, which cannot be ordered until
these questions are settled. The method or charging, too, vitally affects us.
lr wo are charged a flat rate for our
maximum use, any other form of [lower will be cheaper. Any increase of
cost to ns might also cost us our outside Irade, which Is of real and considerable benefit to the city.
II. 0. Travis���I entirely endorse
what Mr. Hinton had said.
���I W. Holmes���We noed'cheap power If we are lo stay in business. We
can't afford lo pay the rates rixed by
the bylaw. Wo Hko the water power
but  we want moro.
An informal discussion followed,
which resolved Itself Into a discussion between Alderman Selous and the
visitors. Alderman Selous said that
the city's waler pipes would not carry
any more water than ut present. Many
motor users ure asking for more power. More water power cannot be
given. Tliey must use some other
form of power. He assured tlieni that
the bylaw would nol necessarily be-
conio operative on its third reading,
uud that nothing would he done lo
bumper motor users.
Ill tills lie wus strongly supported
liy Aidermftn Irving.
Aldermuii Selous to Mr. Hinton���
We are trying to assure you that you
will not be Interfered witii until we
are lu a position to supply you with
electric power and every facility for
using it.
W, Shackleion, addressing Aldermuii Selous, suld ihat tho proposed
rates would muku Nelson power dearer than lhat or any other city and
would drive uianuluctuera away Instead of attracting them.       ,
A dialogue followed. Alderman Selous slated thut tlie grunt of the right
to use water motors had robbed owners of lawns of water they were entitled to, and had enormously lucreus-
ed the city's hill to the West Koolenay   Power  _   Light  company.
The muyor questioned tho statement, but W. P. Dickson endorsed it,
though he could not say to whut extent.
Alderman Selous���Our pipe system
Is designed only for domestic service.
V\'e ure supplying molur users now.
Other! are certain to apply. Shall we
try to give it?,
J. W. Holmes���New upplicants have-
no  plants or vested  rights.
Alderman Irving���Vou are in a
worse position under iho present law.
li. C. Travis���No one pays at the
present rato.
It. W. Hinton���They couldn't. IS'o
one has money enough.
Mr. .Magic���You needn't fear new
applications at these rates.
W. P. Dickson���There Bhould be a
fixed charge for power, whether water
or electric, probably lower than the
one  pro]iosed.
T. J. Scanlon thought that the real
trouble was that no motor user got
tho power he was supisosed to get on
account of Insufficient volume.
W. P. Dickson explained that everything depended on the adjustment of
the rates according to the hours for
which it wub used. A rate of $3.50
per horsepower would amount only to
about fsl.50 for 10 hours' use.
It was then agreed lhat sMr. Isaac's
letter be answered, hy fixing the dute
or operations as probably December
1; that rales would be charged by
metre, and that no motor user would
be emharrassel  by sudden change.
A. K. Watter t��> 1 i i i. .ri, < 1 for a street
light on the comer of Park and Ver-
non streets. It was referred to the
city superintendent of electric lights.
Au Invitation to join the union ot
municipalities and be represented at
the annual meeting to bo held this
year at Kamloops, was read and ac-
llon deferred to the next meeting. The
mayor mentioned a movement for
such a union among the larger cities.
Letters rrom R. A. Renwlck slated
that the courthouse building would lie
given to tho city on condition that the
city remove It from Its present site,
and put It in repair for use until the
new building Is ready. The mayor
salsl lhal no site hnd yel been seenred.
lie thought It could be moved n block
for uboui $5(111. It wus resolved to accept  llie ofrer.
A loiter from A. D. Munro offering
the she at the corner ot Ward and
Lake streets, a half lot, for $1600, was
A lei Ier from lhe clly solicitor Btat-
ed that the hylaw governing rates for
wilier and light, In or out of the clly,
mlghl be amended hy the council
wllh the assent of the electors.
A. T. Walley applied to purchase a
lot from the city's purchase near Ihe
dumping ground not required by tlie
Alderman Selous decided not to
press bylaw No. 172 at present.
A resolution was passed authorizing
a transaction with the Hank of Montreal, ponding Uio receipt of tho proceeds of tho last debentures.
Tho mayor reported having let a
contract lo .1. McDonald for lho erection of the pole line In the dtp.
A. L. McCulloch remarked tluit it
would take some time to educate peo
pie to metro rates for water, as waste
Is general.
The council then adjourned to Wednesday night to consider the power
rales again. ,
Most Dramatic Exposure of Political Corruption Ever Disgracing Canada
Revealed at London Last Week���Statement Contains List of
Paid Vtoers���Offender Declines Election.
The Vancouver News Advertiser publllbefl special despatches revealing political corruption of a sensational
nature fn the by-elections of 1905 in (he city of London. Ont. The arrest of one of the guilty parties took
place on Saturday and the story of the conspiracy  fs interesting in the extreme.    It says:       ,
The arrest of John C. o'Gormun in
the first step in the exposure of the
conspiracy that purchased London for
Hon. C, S. ilyman In the by-election of
.905. Mr. "Hilly" Gray, who fought
London un Ihe National Schools issue
has ben on the trail of lion. C. S. Hy-
man ever since. Jerry Collins, a hotel keeper in London West, revealed
part of the .Ilyman plan of campaign,
and the Ontario government put Inspector Kogers on the case and the
���arrei-tt /of .(J'Uormau this afternoon
is regarded as the first move In one
of the most dramatic and complete exposures of iwlitical corruption ln the
history of Canada's party warfare.
O'Uoi'nan t/ttt a well-known and trusted Liberal in London.    Recently   he
has beeu living in Streetsville. The
crown agreed to adjourn till Monday
after hearing one witness. Collins and
O'Gorman are now under arrest, pending the production of flOOO ball.
Jeremiah Collins, returning officer
in political subdivision 82,-city of London, during the by-election of June,
.9.5, when Mr. Ilyman defeated William Gray, Conservative, has made
complaint of corrupt practice on the
part of John O'Gorman, and other Liberal workers unknown, _yid of wholesale bribery.   Collins was examined on
Saturday, and said that he had been
given $800 to buy votes In his subdivision. William Mulloy, who worked
in London West for Mr. Hyman,
would put the money in an envelope
and iu the presence of' a voter would
hand the envelope to Collins to hold.
A list was kept and when a man was
to have the regular price, $10, his
name was simply marked and If he
was Ut get a different sum, say $5,
the mint was marked. Two hundred
and forty-nine votes were polled ln
the Eighth division, including 104
bought by Mr. Hyman. The vote was,
ilyman, 1*14; Gray,, 105. In the Seventh division of Ward VIII.. Kd Sifton
and Tom Lewis appeared to carry on
thc same work as Mulloy and Collins
did In thc Eighth division. Lewis told
Collins that No. 7 division cost about
$1100 or $1200. Sifton went and got
the money from O'Gorman. On the
day following the polling Mulloy handed Collins a sum of money which he
sajn was the amount required to pay
the voters bought and Collins began
paying all who came for whom he was
holder, both in the Seventh and Eighth
divisions. Dan Wiley, a clerk in the
customs, was pitsont, and took receipts. When Collins found that he
was short $120 he told    Mulloy,   and
Wiley said he would secure the money from George Reid. He returned in
half an hour with that sum. Collins
says that at the last election there
would be two inside scrutineers for
Mr. Hyman. One of them would do
the ordinary scrutineering and have
a list as marked by tne canvassers.
The other would have a clean, un-
murked list of voters and would mark
with "X" eaeh voter's name whose
ballot was put In the box with the
right hand, and with an "O" the names
of those who put In votes with the
left hand. Thus tliey would have a
record of each vote.
Collins' statement Is accompanied
by a list of paid voters In the division
of which he was returning officer. As
a' fact, at the polls, Collins did not
fold the ballots as suggested by O'Gorman.
O'Gorman declined to elect when arraigned before Magistrate Denison.
Mr. Rohlnette objected to the proceedings being held ln Toronto, but Mr.
Duvernet held that such procedure
wars necessary In order to establish
O'Gorman's connection with the charges having application to their jurisdiction. The Investigation has been adjourned until Tuesday.
Collins says he was promised a government job but he did not get it
Non-Resident Pupils May Attend Without   Paying   Fees���Department's
Offer Approved.
A special meeting of the board of
school trustees was held yesterday afternoon at 4 o'clock in the office of
Dr. E. C. Arthur, secretary. There
were present A. D. Emory, chairman,
Dr. Arthur, Dr. Hall and K .J. Steel.

city limits, was read and diseussed.
Ou motion of Dr. Hall the offer wus
A. Sullivan, principal of the public
school, was present. He had a list of
22 non-resident pupils attending, who
hati paid various amounts to date. He
was instructed to return all money
collected aud enroll all non-resident
pupils who applied, who complied with
other requirements.
The board, however, have accepted
the department's comprotnise only for
the current half year, it's further acceptance will depend upon tin1 board
of 1807. Owing to the crowded state
of nit the junior class rooms a new division will become imperative in .luminary, and tin- presence of tiny considerable number of outside pupils may
cause further requirement's iu the way
0( class rooms.
Mr. Sullivan asked for Instructions
In the case of three children applying
to enter. They hnve attended the
school of the Sisters of St. Joseph
since the beginning of the present
term. All are beginners and fit only
for the primary department, which fs
already  overcrowded.
It was resolved that the rule adopt
ed by the board allowing only a fortnight at the beginning of each term
for the enrollment of new pupils be
enforced  In this case as In others.
Mr. Sullvan suggested that authority
be sought to open the schools at 9 n.
m. through the winter mouths Instead
of 0:80, and close half nn hour earlier
In the afternoon. Tho secretary wna
Instructed to tnke up the matter with
llie department and. If possible, secure
authority for tho change.

Will  Eat Yellow Sugar.
New York. Oct. 2.���The Tribune today says: "Unless the United States
pure food commission changes its
mind the people of the United States
will soon be using granulated and other sugars that have a distinctly yellowish tinge. The commission hus decreed that no mineral substance be
used In blenching. Sugar refiners nnd
their chemists arc much disturbed.
Sugar chemists say they use four
pounds of a mineral blueing substance
to every 1,000,000 pounds of sugar for
blenching purposes. This sugar, thu
chemists sny, Is not adulterated. The
pure food commission cannot see it In
that light and Insist that the whiting
process lie abandoned. If thnt Is done
the result will hn that all sugar refined under the commission's new directions will be of a distinctly -,'ellow-
Ish shade.

Unexpected Discovery of Old Coins
Leads to Litigation���Female
Miser's Testament.
Xew York, Oct. 2.���A Hudson, N. *f_
despatch to the Herald says that pots
of .old filled with cuius dating back
to tho reign of George .III., bearing the
Uate 1770, and bills tied ln knots
stuffed In vases and cups were found
yesterday in the most unexpected
places of the Robinson homestead at
liudson, where four weeks ago neigh- jj
bors found tlie body of .Miss Prances
Caroline Kobinson. Until the bidden
money was found it was supposed that !
Miss Kobinson left no more than $.0001
but with the finding of the coin and
treasures the estate ls brought up to
more than $50,000. The finding of the
hidden treasure will, lt Is thought,
cause a contest of tbe will that Miss
Robinson left.
The next of kin will probably take
the matter Into the surrogate court
ln the ground that Miss Robinson
was of unsound mind, although she
was always regarded tis alert in business transactions. The will divides
the estate Into four eHual parts, one
to the American Seaman's Friendly
society, one to tbe American Bible society, a thirl part to the American
Tract 80cies> and the fourth portion
to tho Hudson Homo for the Aged.
Already lasvyers have been engaged
by both sides for the will, contest.
-llss Kobinsoa was au odd character.
it) years eld, and a recluse, but known-
ti every oue of pror.ilnonci ln the
-ty. Her father was one of the old
am. clipper captains, whose boast wu

ol the treasure found y<-_tcrday.
It was not believed that Miss Rob-
nsoa had any money, so tbat when
-he was found dead there was no special activity among the next of kin

It s.-i while this iuventory was being
.ado that the first jar of coins was

Tn? phenomenal growth of Canada
is nothing ir not surprising. During
the last decade the country has made
startling advances and is now attracting the attention of the whole
world. This is not because the country is adopting measures to bring itself to the notice of the world, but because the goods are here and all the
country has to do is to deliver them.
The local Liberal press delights to
speak of the '"wise Immigration policy" of the Laurier administration as
though thai policy makes the success
of Canada, while Canada, because of
her natural resources and the advertising she is receiving at the hands of
private individuals, or corporations, is
winning her laurels in the eyes of the
It is Impossible in these days of
competition and inquiry to keep long
secret the resources of a country like
Canada. While capital and labor are
both vieing with one another to find
new fields to conquer, it can scarcely
be supposed that Canada could hide
her resources under a bushel. The immense riches for which the country
is now becoming famous can no longer
be disguised and like the United
States of a quarter of a century ago.
the facts must become patent to all
*'ho would know them. So it has
|me to pass, that Canada has filleted the eyes of the world and is
, perhaps the one country which
Is receiving the attention of both cap-
Hal and labor the whole world over.
What will be the outcome of this
attention it is not difficult to forecast.
The United States, facetiously called
America, has indirectly done much to
advertise this country and as it has
now reached almost the limit ol its
expansion, what it has done to make
itself known will redound lo the advantage of Canada. Expansion across
the bordet has almost reached iis limit untl what is to come in the way of
development will be much more to
the advantage of this country than to
lhat of the United States.
The prairie provinces will enjoy
their share of the prospective advancement but British Columbia is
yet young iu the field of contention
for her rights. That she will avail
herself of her opportunities and rise
to the occasion need not be doubted,
With her mineral and horticultural
possibilities, she wilt take her place
among the provinces of the Dominion
and a rapid expansion may be looked
tor. The world is after all, a small
sphere, and the opportunities existing
here for investment in many promising ways is too pronounced to be
overlooked. And just as the province
comes into its own in the matter of
public attention, so will the Kootenay
districts attract the attention of the
world at large. While mines, farms
and fruit growing areas are being
sought, the Kootenay    will   be among
the winners. The signs of the limes
nre improving and there is a general
feeling of encouragement, the expression of the "stand patter" being that
good times are ahead. The general
revival of confidence means much to
every kind of business undertaking
and that the people of the Kootenays
believe in the future of the country
is  evidenced  every  day.
There is no place in the Kootenays
for knockers and they are consequently finding life more and more troublesome. Optimism, healthy optimism is
the reigning and dominant spirit Iu
the interior and while in itself a hopeful spirit the developments of the
country are such as give it every excuse for existence,
The Opposition press In Itritish Columbia has had a good deal to say
aboul the sale of the Kaien island railway lands and the responsibility of
the AIcBridc administration in tbat
case. Tin* Canadian again desires to
call attention to the fact that what is
light at Ottawa cannot he wrong at
Victoria. In a recent speech Mr. H.
L. Horden called attention to the fact
that a deal had been made at Moncton
which bote all the earmarks of a deliberately arranged advantage taken
of inside information respecting a deal
in lands which ultimately passed into
the hands of a railway company. Here
are his words, and they cannot be rein ted:
"Extravagance has not been confined to the department of marine and
fisheries. A friendly partizan who had
good reason to believe that certain
land at Moncton would be taken over
by the government purchased it for
$5075 and sold it within a few weeks
to the Intercolonial railway for $13,-
8S0 just a few days before a general
election. The sum of $300 was paid to
a lawyer for conducting the negotiations with the owner of the land. The
friendly middleman pocketed the balance, thus receiving a clear profit of
$85*05. This transaction was thoroughly approved by the government and
their siij>[M_rters who voted unanimously against a resolution protesting the
payment to the partisan middleman of
this enormous profit."
While there Is no similarity between
this deal and the sale of the Kaien
island lands ii is up to the Liberal
press to explain what is tin1 matter
with lho Ottawa authorities, or in other words, while the Laurier government makes deals which are on their
race, openly in violation of business
honor, how can ihe Vietoria government In* condemned for deals which
are not  at  all  in the same class?
The story ul political and moral turpitude exhibited in the revelations
connected wiih the election of Hon. 0.
S. Ilyman in Loudon during 1905
shoulil arouse indignation throughout
all Canada. The motto of the Liberal
party seems now to he power and
place at any cost. With the disclosures in Nova Scotia repealing themselves in Ontario there seems to be
no longer any la-ck of material for political scandals in the eastern provinces.
Of course It is too early to predict
the sum total of the revelations that
will follow iu the Hyman case. Al the
bottom of the scandal there seems to
be a disappointed place seeker, one
who it Is alleged was promised some
gift from the party which his superiors
failed to deliver.    This inay, to some
tent modify the allegations, but that
ere    was    an    understanding   seems
be already well proved. The pnss-
i of money in large sums seems al-
ady established  and  that  fact   alone
sufficient to bring disgrace to the
rty whose agents corruptly  handled
Never was there a more timely plea
an   that   of   Hon.  II.   L.   Horden   for
rity  in  elections and in  the admin-
ration of  public affairs.
The Globe says editorially: "The
transfer of Mr. Justice Duff of Hritish
Columbia to a Beat on the supreme
court bench of the Dominion will be
heartily approved by public opinion.
Though comparatively young In years,
he has already earned a good reputation as a jurist, partly by his ability
as an advocate and partly by his decisions during his still brief term on the
Hritish Columbia bench. Mr. Dttfr Is
a native uf this province, and he was
educated here, having distinguished
himself in the University of Toronto
as a mathematician. The best wishes
of his former fellow students, with
whom ho was highly popular, will go
with him to Ottawa, where a long career of usefulness and distinction
seems opening  up  for  him.

Issued an edict thnt the next time a

and directors were to he cut off. This
edict, which has never bttfcn repealed,

The owners of water motors are deeply

as to the probability of electricity being
substituted for water in the various
manufacturing industries in the city It
was believed that electricity would be

in manufacturing enterprises will be
greatly increased.
The performance given last evening by
the Sutton company at Sherman's Opera

and affords ample scope to bring out the
histrionic talents of the company. The
specialties were exceptionally good, particularly the performance of the Mnllaley
sisters. The bill for this evening is "My
