favorable than have lately been secured by any other city in Western Canada.
A point emphasized ln conference
with thu huads of the city's engineering departments waa that every man
employed hy the city must give a fair
day's  wurk for his  wages.
A suggestion of the frontage tax for
local improvements was discussed and
held   over   for   further   consideration.
The council met at 8 o'clock with all
the members present. The minutes of
the last meeting were read and adopted.
The finance committee reported a
streets payroll of $242.75, which waa
passed and ordered paid.
The Are, water and light committee
reported recommending that an agreement with the Allis-Chalmers-Bullock
company be ratified, and that $10,000

Herbert Cox petitioned for water,
light and sewer connection to his new
dwelling on Park street. The petition
was   laid   on   the  table.
R. A. Drown reported fair progress
on the work at the power plant. There
had been some trouble ln the sending
out of supplies. He had dismissed several men with light teams who were
not taking fair loads. The cement and
lumber necessary is nearly all out now.
Aid. Procter regretted that the work
had not been done by contract He
thought some unearned money would
have  to   be  paid.
To the mayor, Mr. Brown said he
had Instructed the foreman to report
any laborers who were shirking a fair
day's  work.
The ilnance committee submitted another payroll of $868.18 for power plant

the book-keeping of the city, and shall
he so framed as to afford complete and
ready touch with all the tools, machinery, plant, supplies and materials of
city   from their  purchase  to  their
insumption or other disposition..
"Full and complete accounts shall he
kept of the above in the city's books,
anil shall be supported by a full and
regular system of stocktaking, carried
out at least twice In every year, and
stocktaking to be carried out Independently of the officer in charge of tlie materials; and complete statements and
detail shall he laid before the council
twice In each year, to wit, at Its first
regular meeting after each municipal
election, and at Its first regular meeting In July.
"The audit shall cover as thoroughly
the city's property and supplies and
materials as it dues the city's monies.

chair, on Bylaw No. 182, the civic salaries bylaw.
The bylaw was then reported complete as amended, and was, by unanimous  vote,   read  a third   time.
Aid McMorris drew attention to the
number of petitions for sewers already
received, which the city Is not in a
position to grant. He suggested a
frontage tax, on the local Improvement
plan, for putting in such sewers.
The mayor thought It might work
well enough In regard to sewers but he
felt that the frontage tax system was
fraught with danger. It had mined, or
greatly impaired, the credit of many
other cities.
A general discussion followed in the
course of which Aid. Procter urged
that tbe city go as far as possible in
extending sewer connections for the
sake of the health of the city. He understood that one petition already
signed by 14 residents was to be renewed, with more signatures and accompanied by written guarantees of

that he had. after receiving many Inquiries and some offers, given a ten
days' option on the school debentures
to Aemlllus Jarvis and company of Toronto, at a figure which will net the
city 95 per cent, and all accrued Interest, which Is better than has been secured by any other western city.
Aid. Procter bas received an Inquiry
from an English firm for the new
power plant debentures.
The city clerk has given the notice,
required by the legislature, to the holders of more than half the present debentures, and is making good progress.
Aid. McMorris asked permission for
the Agricultural Society directors to
hold a meeting ln the city hall, which
was granted.
The council then adjourned to Monday, March 16th.

G.   G.   8.   Lindsay   Presents  Report of
Crow's Nest Pass Coal Company
to Annual  Meeting.
Toronto, March 10.���The deferred
annual meeting of the Crow's NeBt
Pass Coal Company Is being held this
afternoon. The report of the directors
was submitted by President G. G. S.
Lindsay. The report shows that the
balance at credit of the profit and loss
account, brought forward from 1906,
amounted to $353,592. To this has been
added $382,986.28, the company's net
profit for 1907, also the sum of $324,320,
representing payments ot premium on
stock, making the aggregate $1,060,-
980.70. From this amount the directors
paid a yearly dividend of ten per cent.,
amounting to $355,178.98, have transferred to the reserve fund $324,280,
and   have   carried   forward   $371,399.72.
The coal mined during 1907 amounted
to 981,939 tons, as against 806,901 ln
1906. Production of coke amounted to
231,368 tons,, as against 213,295 ln 190G.
The report says that but for a strike
during the month of April, and the action of the smelters in raising wages
"and so depriving us of our coke oven
men ln midsummer, and then for the
most part shutting down mines and
smelters for the last two months of
the year because they could not operate
under the wage scale, the output would
have exceeded by considerable the million ton mark for the year."

been goaded Into an extreme position
by ill-advised statements by English
editors of prominent India newspapers.
Thore Is no danger of an Immediate
upheaval but a serious crisis in the

were entertained that disturbing questions would be satisfactorily settled
by the Indian congress, but it disbanded."

committee this morning, Dr. Reid,
Grenvllle, complained that the interior
department refused to Bend out documents except when the committee was
in session. This, he said, was inconvenient for members. Pugsley said the
matter arose from a misunderstanding
and that Oliver was quite willing to
forward papers whenever asked to do
so by the committee. He said there
would be no trouble In obtaining papers when required. Pugsley asked
tbat the charge made by Bennett, of
Simcoe, that the dredge Hackett was
paid for working in two places at the

agreed to. but Bennett denied any such

Tuesday,  March  10,  1908.
A public meeting is called for tonight to consider and finally decide
whether Nelson will continue trying to
attract tourists and settlers to this district by publishing and circulating information as to the districts resources.
or give up tbe struggle, abandon all
provision for answering inquiries, tear
down the office built on Ward street,
intimate to tourists that if they waut
to visit Ne'.son they must bring th-;r
own guides and expect no information
here, and leave tlie prospective settlers
to get their Information from Interest
ed real estate men.
The work of the Tourist Association
and the 20.000 Club has been eminently
successful, but the organizations themselves have been failures. Excellent
���work has been done. The attractions
of the district to sportsmen, holiday
makers, and settlers have been published all over the American continent, iu
the British Islands and in the countries
of Western Europe which furnish most
travellers. The results, too, have been
excellent. The transient summer travel
has repeatedly overtaxed the hotel accommodations. The shores of the Ann
aud ot most of the river are under cultivation and parts have changed hands
more thau once at constantly advancing prices. All this Is the direct result of the activity of the 20.000 Club
Hut the club's executive has always
been hampered by lack of funds. No
share of the money spent by tourists
nor the advance In orchard values
finds its way by any chance Into the
club's coffers. The club has done the
sowing at Its own expense and gets not
a grain from tho harvest, abundaut as
it is.
History has repeated Itself In Nelson
several times In this respect An organization meeting is called, It may be.
generally is. well attended, a comm.t-
tee is appointed. Then the public
thinks it has done its duty. No furtl
interest is taken in the enterprise, and
the period of its survival depends entirely on the devotion and loyalty of
the few who are bearing the burden.
Of course dissolution is inevitable.
No dozen men will permanently give
their time and work to benefit a thousand whu are just interested enough to
occisionally sneer at their efforts, if
Nelson collectively thinks it worth
while to attempt to attract residents to
the city or district, a united and whole
hearted effort must be made.
We pointed out, during the last municipal elections, thai the city of Nelson
has acquired assets, incurred debts and
laid the foundations for a city on such
a scale that it can be Justified only by
the assured expectation of substantial
and permanent growth. The burdens already accumulated will be very heavy
if they nr. permanently to be borne by
7.0'-'U people. The question to be answered tonight Is: "Are we content
with our present status or do we wan:
to lmprtffe it " Those who ignore the
me- tin;; will be answering in the most
decisive fashion: "We are content, we
want no improvement."
Liberal organs from the Toronto
down have lately been full of
di :.ur.ciaii6n of Conservative obstruction, and wails about the expense in-
I In tne ; ro'.onir.ng of the session
of the commons. On this point the
Toronto News, whose independence
arm not be questioned, says: "Obstruction is necessary when a govern-
m- nt refuses information concerning
the public expenditure. The question
of the c.^s: to the country is secondary
:     tbe  principle involved."
The question of forest conservation
is admitted to be one of the first importance at present in all countries
which have any considerable forest
area remaining. The policy of the government of British Columbia in reserving the remaining timber limits has
been endorsed by the associated boards
of the interior of the province, but it
has been the subject of vehement
criticism from some quarters. As an
indication of impartial opinion of the
policy and of the government which
framed it, the following from Collier's
Weekly may be of interest:
"The opponents of the national forestry policy of the United States have
laid special stress upon the streams of
American home builders flowing across
the l'ne to Canada. They have dwelt
tearfully upon the Iosb of national
strength caused by a cruel government,
which, by forbidding its citizens to
make homes on its woodlands, drives
them to a more hospitable foreign land.
Hut now the government of British Columbia has put into forest reserves at
one stmke a hundred and fifty million
acre1*���as much in that single province
as all the forest reserves of the United

he would leave on the next train for

Whereas by Section 6 of the "Game Protection

"Game Protection Act. Amendment Act, 1905,"
it is enacted that it ahalt be lawful for the Lieutenant-Governor in Council, by Proclamation to
be published In two successive issues of the British Columbia Gazette, to declare a close sesBon
for geese in any part of tbe Province ior anv
period of time, snd
Whereas our said Lieutenant-Governor, by and
with the advice of his Executive Council, bas
been pleased to direct, by an Order in Council
in that behali, a close season for geese within
the County of Kootenay, until and includlig
the 31st day of August, one thousand nine hundred and eight.
Now Know Ye therefore, tbat in pursuance
thereof, we do hereby proclaim a close season

Victoria to the point of Investigation
and they have made the discovery that
their schools are not provided with
fire escapes. In other Canadian cities,
notably Toronto and Vancouver, the
schools have been condemned by reason of the fact that no escapes have
been provided. In Victoria, according
to George Jay, chairman of the school
board, the schools are provided with
fire alarms, but no fire escapes.
Muet   Have   Been   Dreaming.
A. Nichols, the Burton City merchant
who claimed that he had been robbed
of $800. appears to have been troubled
with bad dreams. Just as The Canadian went to proas Inst night Nichols
confessed that his story to the chief
of police was false, and that he did not
lose any money at all. The yarn he
told did not look altogether right from
the first, which led this paper to express the belief that the thief would
probably be discovered   before  night.
Returning   to   Butte.
The Phoenix Pioneer says the announcement In the press early last
week that the great Amalgamated Copper mines in Montana would at once
reopen with a full force of men, which
employ around 20,000 at mines and
smelters, had the effect of attracting
quite a number of men from the Boundary, for whom there was not room at
the Granby mines or other smaller properties now working. Nearly every day
last week tickets were bought for
Butte, and some old Butte miners left
for their old working places.
C. P.  R.  Navigation.
During the coming season the C. P.
R. will expend $250,000 on its navigation department in the Kootenays.
Down at the shipyards they are preparing to build a tug and a barge, and
other additions to the fleet are in contemplation. The ship carpenters are
busy at Nakusp, and as a result there
will be a tug and two or three barges
jpore in commission within a few
weeks, T^iis large expenditure of money taken in connection with the money
tbat will be spent in building operations in the city, including the completion and operation of the zinc plant,
induces the belief that this will be a
prosperous  year  in Nelson.

from the C. P. R. freight office in Nelson to the Winnipeg office, the position
of general freight agent of the Kootenays becomes vacant. The Daily Canadian has no desire to dictate to the
C. P. R. as to the appointments of Its
officials, but at the same time this paper cannot refrain from giving expression to the hope so generally expressed in Nelson that R. W. Drew, who
has so long aud faithfully served the
company in this city, will be promoted
to the vacant office. Mr. Drew has
been a resident of Nelson for ten years
or longer, and during that time he has
firmly entrenched himself in the confidence of the business community.
There are so many matters affecting
local business that it will require a
man thoroughly conversant with local
conditions to give satisfaction, and in
Mr. Drew the company has a man that
may be depended upon to perform the
duty not only to the satisfaction of the
company but as well to the business
community. His appointment would be
a well-merited recognition of the services of a faithful employee and a tribute to tbe merit of a highly esteemed
Certificate  of Improvements.

Assault   on   Chinaman.
Yesterday afternoon a fight occurred
near the corner of Baker and Kootenay
streets between u white man and a
Chinaman, begun by the former's unprovoked attack with snowballs. The
Chinaman took off his coat to meet his
assailant. A crowd of school boys
gathered and shouted advice to the
champion of the white race. Before
there was any decisive blow Chief
I >easy arrived and stopped the encounter, informing the white man that
he had seen the beginning and that if
he had authority, he would arrest him
on the spot. A crowd of Hindoos across
the street were curious spectators of
the display of the white man's superiority.
Salmo's   Grievance.
There are now five shipping mines
in Sheep Creek valley, the Queen,
Mother Lode. Kootenay Belle, Nugget
and Emerald, all free milling and high
grade. There are a score of other
claims in the valley whose promise is
as good as any of those named. The
point of shipment, for them all is Salmo,
which is also the shipping point for a
shingle mill and a number of camps,
as well as for a large agricultural settlement in the Salmon River valley. A
man who has done and Is still doing
business all along the line says that
Salmo furnishes more business to the
Spokane jFalls and Northern railway
than any other three towns between
Nelson and Spokane. And still It is
without a  railway station.

Publicity  Bureau.
A public meeting Is called Tor tonight
at 8 o'clock In the court house building
A financial stater-icnt will oe presented
by the last executive committee of Ui<
20,000 club. The atatement will show
total liabilities of about $800. The assets consist of the building and contents Including somr. advertising literature. The fate of the institution will
then be submitted to the meeting. It
has been suggested that In spite of the
financial stringency there could be no
objection to the city council's advancing
the cost price of the building. $750, and
then renting It to an advertising club
at a fair figure, nor to the city's voting
a small sum monthly as payment for
tho handling of what is really civic
correspondence, and wnlch the staff al
the city hall cannot possibly attend lo.
The banks, the leading-hotels and the
real (.state men can, it is believed, he
relied upon to contrlbnte liberally, and
many of the merchants are public
spirited enough to assist. The board
of trade will doubtless continue its us
slstance by way of the secretary's salary. The continunnce of the work Is
feasible and not particularly difficult,
but the question whether it is really desired by the citizens or not will bobcat
answered by the response to the call
tor the meeting.
