riri L,�� of Last Night's Meeting
-r��� ..��� .irGive Work to Idle Men
Where Possible.
Last night's council meeting was de-
voied to consideration of ways and
means. Tentative estimates for the
yi-ar ahow a possible surplus of aboutS
J 1.000 to be attained by rigid economy.
Tho one departure from that policy was
the grunting of a well earned increase
of salary to the City Clerk and Treasurer w. D. Wasaon.
The council met at 8 o'clock with ^11
members present except Aid. Procter,
who is at the coast. The minutes of
lhe last meeting were read and adopted
A delegation representing the unemployed presented a petition and several
members addressed the council, stating
lhat there are several hundred men out
of work iu Nelson, a few of them without funds.
The mayor pointed to ilie growing
financial burden of the city, with back
debts, wiih a necessary heavy expenditure for tlie completion of the power
plant with the absolute necessity for a
new public school. There was a possibility of increased taxes being forced
on the city, lie thought no general
scheme of employment could be considered but that the heads of all departments might employ men from a
list to be submitted, whenever possible.
The  delegates   then withdrew.
The finance committee submitted a
repoft Including estimates of revenue
and expenditure for the year as follows:
To the Muyor und Aldermen:
Gentlemen,���Your finance committee,
to whom was referred the application
from the permanent firemen for an increase of salary, deemed it advisable to
lake under consideration the whole
salary list of tbe city, and having done
so, would recommend that in the positions herein referred to, a graduated
scuie of remuneration be adopted, to be
granted as service and efficiency may
warrant. For many reasons this to us
seems to be more equitable for all concerned, and if adopted by your honorable body should prevent tbe recurrence
aif application! for increases ln salaries
which have been mude In the past. At
thi' lame time it will prove au incentive
to a capable person to retain bis [aosi-
tion, and impress upon him the fact
that efficient service Is appreciated by
the council.
Your committee would therefore recommend as follows:
City clerk and treasurer, $150 maximum: $115 per month for lirst year,
with an increase of $10 per month
each succeeding year until the maximum Is rettclu'd. And thnt the present
city clerk nnd treasurer be puld tho
maximum salary, dating from January
1st, 1908, he having been In the city
sa-rvli-a. and holding tin- position of city
a-h'ik for the requisite number of years.
Assistant clerk���$110 maximum; $si5
per month for first year, with an ln-
creuse of $5 per month each succeeding
year until tha* maximum Is  reached.
chief of lire department���$180 maximum; $115 per month for Brit year,
with an increase of $5 per month ouch
succeeding year until lhe maximum Is
reached. And that the present chief be
paid $125 per mouth, dating from Jan.
1st, 11)08.
Three permanent firemen���ISO maximum: $75 per month lor Hist year, with
un Increase of $5 per month euch succeeding year until the maximum Is
Substation employees���$S0 maximum:
$,Mi per month for first year, with an Increase nf $10 per month each succeeding year until tho maximum Is reached.

may deem It advisable or necessary tc
Increoso same.
The detailed estimates were loft ovet
for consideration  at  me  next  mooting.
An Informal dlsOUSSlon followed ro
guiding tbe salaries of clly officials, the
council going Into -ommltlco for con
slderatlon of the  report with Aid.  Patenaude In the chair.
The committee on rising reported
progress aud recommended a reference
of the report back to the finance committee for further consideration, with
a special recommendation that a bylaw
be prepared to regulate the salaries of
the  civic employees.
Aid. McMorrls presented a further
report recommending the employment
of certain men at $50 per month under
conditions to be fixed by the finance
and public works committees. The report was adopted.
The mayor reported that the city's
private bill to authorize a further loan
of $S6,00U for the Installation of a second unit at the power plant, had been
read a second time in the provincial
legislature, and could be brought into
effect at any time by proclamation of
the lieutenant-governor. This provision
was for the purpose of affording au opportunity to notify the city's other bond
The mayor reported further correspondence with Cecil B. Smith, engineer,
of Winnipeg, who would arrive on
Thursday of this week. He recommended that in addition to the city engineer
aud city electrician, A. L. McCulloch be
engaged to accompany Mr. Smith and
give him information aB to distances,
currents and conditions at all stages of
the water. The suggestion was made a
resolution  and  adopted.
D. J. McGregor, city sanitary inspector, asked for authority to enforce a bylaw compelling property owners to make
sewer ciinnections.
The city engineer reported the return to the power plant site of the
city's ha.isiing apparatus. He was requested by the mayor to report to the
council with tbe fullest detail what material, and at whal cost, has had to be
purchased to put the plant In working
The city electrician was Instructed
to find out what has become of all
property that waa ever at the power
plant which has not been accounted for.
The city electrician recommended the
purchase of a centrifugal pump for the
power plant. Tbe purchase was authorized.
The mayor requested that the city
electrician notify the clerk on the arrival of Cecil B. Smith, and the city
clerk forthwith to give five days' notice
to the West Kootenay Power and Light
company that auxiliary power was
It was agreed that the council should
meet weekly throughout the year. Council then adjourned to next Monday.

From Ocean to Ocean.
Toronto, Feb. 18.���An order was made
this morning for the winding up of the
Mutual Reserve Life Insurance company of New York. The application for
ttie order was made by the petitioners
by whose demands the decree was made
on lhe 15th by the United Slates circuit
court in New York. The application
was supported by the receivers appointed by lb., emu. and Mr. K. R. C. Clark-
sou was appointed interim liquidator.
The winding up order was necessary
for the protection of the Canadian policy
holders. Negotiations are on loot for
the re-insurance of all Canadian policy
holders in a substantial Canadian company. The arrangement, if consummated, will mean that a portion of the reserve now held by the Canadian government will be used to purchase its reinsurance. It ls exiiecied tnat a substantial Burplus will remain of this reserve after effecting reinsurance of
policies now in force and the payment
of all death claims to toe handed out to
the New York receivers. If this result
can be brought about il will be a vlndt-
dtcallon of the policy of the Canadian
government witn regard to insurance,
ln the meantime the position of the
Canadian policy holders is extremely
satisfactory and the winding up order
w,il prevent any taps taking place.

Winnipeg, Feb. 18.���Tlie Hon. Robert

that the government will not accede to
the prayer of the numerous petitions
that the bars be closed at six o'clock.
There were eighteen separate petitions.

Besemer Works Resume.
Johnstown,   Ptt.,  Fob.  18.���Work was
resumed ln the Besemer department of
the Cambria Kteol company today, giving employment to 2,000 men.
Madrid, Feb. 18.���There la no truth
in the report that King Alfonso had been
assassinated. The rumor probably waa
an outgrowth of the bomb explosion
at Barcelona yesterday which now appears to have been the work of an anarchist. In addition to those killed one
woman was wounded, a mother, and ber
child. The explosion caused much damage to the neighboring buildings. The
precise object of the outrages has not
been made clear but it is Interesting
to note that the fractions of the parliamentary organizations recently united
ln a request to the government to restore the constitutional guarantees ln
Barcelona declaring that normal conditions prevailed there. King Alfonso ia
at present at Seville.
Attempt  to  Consolidate   New  England
in His Support.
Boston. Feb. 18.���After spending
three days looking over the political
situation in Connecticut Secretary Taft
went to New Hampshire today to make
two speeches, one at Concord this afternoon and the second at Manchester this
evening. Tomorrow the Secretary of
War will return to Massachusetts and
during the next day or two he will be
beard in Lowell and other Massachusetts   cities.
The Taft managers ln this section,
while professing themselves well satisfied with the outlook, realize nevertheless, tbat aa things now stand lt is a
toss-up as to whether Taft or Hnghes
will receive the support of the New
Kngiand delegates to the Chicago convention. The general sentiment among
New England Republicans ls very favorable toward Taft. He has a strong;
hold on Maine, and Massachusetts,.
Rhode Island and Connecticut look upon him very favorably. Some antl-Taft-
managers, supported by several of tbe
foremost Republican leaders ln New
Hampshire, expect to have everything
in line before tbe state convention,
meets. In Vermont and in western.
Massachusetts Governor Hughes la well
thought of, which ls due probably to
the proximity of this section to New
Y'ork. Fairbanks spoke in various parts
of New England several times last summer and fall, but apparently did not
make a very deep Impression. Speaker
Cannon, ta probably stronger In this section than the Vice-President. The real
situation appears to be that tbe larger
part lof New England stands ready
to support either Tatt. Hughes or Cannon. Taft has secured the services ot
some very able political managers and
through their efforts lt ls probable that
Taft sentiment may become dominant
ln most of tbe New England Statea
within the next sixty days.
Last of the Crew.
Seattle, Feb, 18.���A despatch to the
Post-Intelligencer from Nona Bay says:
"The crew of the little six ton sloop
Tekla. lying at anchor here, were startled last night by a feeble hall from a
steel life boat drawing up slowly In
the light breeze. In the boat were tbe
forms of four mon, three living and one
dead, survivors of the American ship
Emily Reed, wrecked off the mouth of
the Nehalem river on the coast of Oregon 200 miles from Noas Bay. The
trhee living survivors were in a frightful condition. Their tongues were swollen from thirst so that at first they
oould scarcely speak. They had had no
food since last Sunday night nor water
since they left the wreck. The dead
man   was   the ship's  cook."

oarnivalt of theft by the reverend editor of  th**  Toronto  Globe,
m. ]'.. A.r.-'H, member for st. An*
tolne'g, Montreal, Conservative, ai Iced
for the production of original '!->' u
menti from the Interior department
Compliance with the request in a mai
ter of rlghl vrhoie recognition (h hix
centuries old In the Anglo-Boxon world.
But Hir Wilfrid Laurier had the affront
ery to refuae it. in Uie Btitlafa parlla
meal the mere suggestion of auch n
refusal would drive any miniate! from
public life forever, in the American
House of Representatives ii would pro
bably be fatal. Bul sir Wilfrid knew
that if hi.- moved to expel Mr, Ames
ha could rely on tha votes of Hurh au*
tomata aa mil Oalliher and Duncan
Ross, wim neither know nor care anything liiioui constitutional Ity.
After u onntigation from Mr. Borden,
Hir Wilfrid abandoned inn ludefenslble
position and  ordered   Ihe production  of
the documents,      They    substantiated
Mr. Amen' rdiar��eH of coiiHjilruey  to de
fraud th*- treasury nnd tho bona Qde
settlers for the benefit of apeculatora
und party spoilsmen.
Tha mare Inspection <��r a few doou**
ments proved theft on a grand scale
and   quite   explained   Hir   WIlfrld'H   re-
luotanoe to produce them. But tbe oon*
victed thieves were small fry. The op
position parly moved for a oofflftylision
to Investigate for the purpose of Identifying the urch-crlmlnalH nnd publicly
Castenlng their guilt on them. ThiB Sir
Wilfrid could not afford to grant The
utgnal    was    given���tho  crack of   tho
wh!j>���and the Machine voted down the
mot ton.
The debate that preceded the vote
will ever be memorable in Canadian
political history. To the attack of the
opposition which could not avoid reiteration of charges of stealing In which
cabinet ministers must have heen accomplices, only one minister replied,
the unfortunate Mr. Oliver. His speech
would have ruined any reputation but
his. To the credit of the intelligent
memben of the cabinet let It be Bald
that  shame kept, them silent.
Bul the Liberal protagonist was Clifford Sifton, ox-minister of the interior
who retired in disgrace, the man who
entered parliament a pauper and within
five years was a multi-millionaire. .Mr.
Sifton made the beat of no case. Unable to deny that crimes had been committed, be slandered officials of 20 years
ago. Questioned the accuracy of Mr.
Amen' estimates, and gravely assured
the house that lhe timber of Western
Canada had not all boon stolen.
This amazing defence, tho only reply
that can ba math', bas been adopted by
all the Machine organs; even lhe reverend Toronto Globe bas the Impudence
to ba. 8 Its defence on Mr. Ames' mistaken estimate. It is as if a man charged wiiii the theft of 91,000,000 protester]
that he had stolen only $'J!M),uOO, and
expected acquittal because of the complainant's mistake,
It eannol In* denied, and Is not denied,
that speculators, most of them professional Liberal politicians, got limber
lands for one per cent of their value in
open martcet, and that thla required the
knowledge, consent and assistance of
tin- minister of Interior or some of his
staff. Further than this is unknown because tor the first time In Canadian history Investigation of a charge of theft
against a department of the government wim refused by a party majority.
In this case BJ In many others Sir
Wilfrid Laurier's handi; are probably
clean; of the millions stolen fiom the
treasury ha has probably received not
a dollar, but he lu the conscious and deliberate protector of thieved anj be
knows that his refusal of a commission
ts utterly Indefensible, and would be Impossible In any parliament ou earth but
the one he has degraded.
It Is not at all Inconsistent with our estimate of the abilities aud attainments
of VV. A. Gallllier, M. P., to credit him
with sufficient intelligence to be utterly
d.simsted with what our contemporary
evidently intends for a defence of him.
Tlie defence concedes that he may be
exactly as we described him. a man of
no ability, no knowledge and no inconvenient scruples, and replies that in
B| ii- of those facts he can be elected!
Supi>ose the impertinence were true.
whai of it? What would election prove?
Bob McPherson won an election. Willie
Mclnnes won two. It is probably be-
>ond our contemporary's mental grasp
but it is none the less a fact that every
��� si in Nelson of respectable Intelligence voted for Mr. Galllher In 1IMM under protest. There really are Liberals
of respectable intelligence, our contemporary's evidence to the contrary notwithstanding. We are not in the busi-
D. Bfl Of prophecy but we are not prepared to concede Mr. Galliher's election. Our quarrel is not with him personally. As we said, he is a good fellow, a very likeable fellow, but as a
member of a deliberative assembly he
[fl as much a joke as Duncan Ross, except that he doesn't expose his ignorance quite as oft*-*n. He is the very type
of the Machine member, the most degraded   product of  Canadian  politics.

Bernard   Shaw   Discusses   Murder  as   a
Remedy for  Political   Wrong
and Offers Theory.
London, Feb. 18.���Hernard Shaw,
writing about the appall.n*g frequency
af political aw-jaHsinationH, and after reviewing thoHe since the murder of Alexander of Russia and referring to tho
death of Charles I, says:
"Let me try to bring the question
home to Kngiand. For 200 years our
monarch! have run no risks. Our kings
have accepted a liberal position so completely that we have forgotten it is still
IKJssibie for our kings to do what the
late King of Portugal did. Our revolutions huve been general elections,
swinging the pendulum between the
Whigs  and  the  Tories.
"liut the twentieth century brings a
new force into the field���socialism. Private property at present is supreme
over both king and parliament, lt may
be within a lifetime that many now living will be defending property in Its
last ditch.
"Suppose the next four general elections should show such a steady increase of Socialists in parliament as to
make it a political certainty that the
fifth general election will place them in
a majority. Suppose that the only way
of averting this will be the repeal of
the two great refor mans or the introduction of the three class system of
voting, with the establishment of a Strafford or a Franco in a dictatorship to
suppress public demonstration against
the measures. Supspose the propertied
classes of the day compel the reigning
monarch to countenance those proceedings. Suppose he, having taken a political bias, and not like King Edward
in tlie heyday of Victorian Liberalism
-but in a heyday of jingo imperialism,
were to throw himself heart and soul
into an attack on democracy, what
should we do, what would be our remedy against the king?
"The English answer so far is, "Kill
him'; the Russian answer so far is, "Kill
him'; the French answer so far is, "Kill
him'; the Portuguese answer so far is,
Kill him'; the Roman answer, glorified
to the utmost of his power by our greatest poet, is 'Kill him.' No sane human
person can be satisfied with, that answer, but it stands, and will continue
to stand until a better one can be

discussion of important issues. The opposition leader rejected the resolution
as a violation of the immemorial rights
of the members of the house in England
and in Cunada ever since confederation.
Gilbert H. Mclntyre of Perth, had
formerly seconded Mr. McLean's resolution and intended to support it, but
after hearing Mr. Tiorden's speech he
declared he would oppose it.
Sir Wilfrid Laurier opposed the resolution. Under the present practice matters of indifference were often brought,
before the house but that was better

long standing. As lt was. he asked Mr.

The   Samson  Concert.
The courage and perseverance of the
Nelson Choral Society in pressing forward their preparation of Handel's
".Samson" In face of almost insuperable
difficulties was rewarded last evening
when the work was presented in a fragmentary way to an audience that comfortably filled the Baptist church and
listened with manifest pleasure to all
the items of a somewhat quaintly arranged programme. Occasional printed
notes explained the significance of the
Samson pieces. The chorus presented
an attenuated appearance as compared
with some previous occasions, and the
balance of parts was inadequate, but
there was clear evidence of careful
study on the part of all, and the able
conducting by IT. S. Bodmer educed excelled results. A small hut competent
orchestra gave an attractive rendering
of the interesting "Samson" overture.
suggestive of great action to follow. The
concluding charming minuet caught the
fancy of tho audience. Applause greeted this and the stirring opening chorus,
"Awake the Trumpet's Lofty Sound."
George Brown was in fine voice and
sang the famous pathetic air, "Total
Eclipse," in careful style. The chorus,
"(> First. Created Beam." was rendered
With due attention to its plaintive effect.
None of the choruses was given with
belter effect. The majesty of "Then
Round Ahout the Starry Throne," the
"To Sing anfl Dance We Give the Day,"
and thr> the jollity of "Great Dagon Hath
Subdued Our Foe," were well illustrated. Mrs. Thnrman gave a dignified
and sympathetic rendering of the air

excellent promise as a Singer. Ronald
Brown's rich full voice was heard to
advantage In Brown's "Tha. Great White
Throne." The audience was hearty
and sympathetic In Its applause throughout. No items were more warmly greet
ed than the duets for two iiinnfortes by
fairs. Hannlngton and Mr. Bodmer. The
Schubert Allegro Moderate with its
haunting melodies, and the always delightful anil surprising "Midsummer
Night's Dream" overture of Mendelssohn
were so enjoyed that a repition of each
was demanded. But the conductor exhibited a Roman severity regarding encores, and Ihe eager audience had to
rest contented. The singing of the National Anthem brought to a close a concert in which Samson perhaps appeared
with shorn locks, bnt all present carried
away a recollection of musical beauty
and charm.
