There were only four of the
oity aldermen present last night
as Alderman McDonald was absent
at the Nelson meeting of the West
ern Federation of Miners and
Alderman Hamilton away as Judge
of the Court of Revision.
The usual routine of business
being over, Alderman Rolt asked
whether anything had to be done
as to the Sanitary department.
Alderman Rolt had suggested tha
perhaps the scavengin g be let out
by contraot.
The Chairman of the Board of
Works thought that no alteration
Bhould be made.
Alderman Rolt thought that
either the matter Bhould be dealt
with by contract ]or by employing
two men for one month and then
one man for the following month.
This latter oourse met with the
Sanitary Inspector approval bb being feasible.
Alderman Rolt was instructed to
bring in a motion.
An enquiry was the made as to
the collection of taxes.
The matter was referred to the
Finance Committee and will probably be hung up until Alderman
Hamilton's return as he iB tbe
Chairman of the Finanoe Committee.
Alderman Stont was of the opinion that a tax sale was*the only
course as it was praotically impossible to collect the taxes otherwise.
Alderman Rolt concurred.
Mayo-- Clute Baid tbat a tax Bale
had n<-v<-r been held here but tlie
course was perfectly feasible nf
properly safeguarded If not a
tax sale was easily upset.
Alderman Rolt then introduced
th>- fir.mens salaries on a new bom'p.
He wmiied the Chief to receive
$120 instead of $110, the foreman
$85 instead of $80, men ot over
3 years service $80 instead of $75,
men of over 12 months service $75
and for the first 12 months $72.50
instead of $70. As to uniforms
the threw highest paid to procure
their own but the three men
with the lowest salaries to have
them provided for them. The
raise to date from February 1st
being shortly after the date it was
firat dealt with.
Alderman Stout proposed him-
I self willing to tackle tha matter at
onoe.
Alderman Stout then seconded
the motion.    '
Alderman Martin interjected
that he would oonsidered tbe question of the sanitary department at
a oommittee to be convened before
the next counoil meeting.
Alderman Rolt waived his notice
of motion on the understanding
that if the matter won not to con-
Great Britain Possesses a New
Arm.
SENDING ALL NEW GUNS TO INDIA
Only Place Where an  Attack May  Be Expected
Neutral   Ships   and   Their   Cargoes.
London, Maroh 9.—On formally
introducing the' army estimates for
the ooming year in the House of
CommonB, War Seoretary Arnold
Forster announced that a new
field and artillery gun had been adopted, The seoretary added that it
would be unrivalled in Europe. It
waB hoped to complete a 108 field,
guns and 18 horse artillery guno
during the finanoial year. Practically the whole of the first year's
supply of the new guns would be
sent to India which was the only
possible plaoe of contact with a
great European army and the place
where long ranges are common.
The gun would fire 181 and 12.}
pound projectiles. A new rifle wae
also in oourse of manufacture, the
secretary further announced, and
India would take 71,000 stand*
there in the ooming year.
London, Maroh 9. — A most interesting question was answered
by Premier Balfour in today's papers, giving replies to questions.
Replying to that raised in regard
to use of neutral ports by belligerents, Premier Balfour, while   not
explaining the government's attitude, admitted that the points
raised were of the greatest interest,
and said they were receiving the
attention of the government.
Tokio, March 9.—The report of
the naval attack upon Vladivostok
is not confirmed officially, although
the navy department adds that an
atti ('. was planned. A report iB
expeoted from the Meet commander
before long.
Paris, Maroh 9.—Tbe Matin publishes a despatch from Tokio saying the Japanese navy department
has announoed that thirteen Russian war vessels, representing a
total of 94,000 tons, have received
injuries since the opening of hostilities. The Matin's Harbin correspondent says:
"General Sakbaroff, command-
ing the first army corps, arrived at
Harbin yesterday. Troops continue to pass through Harbin bound
to the south. The railroad is
working with admirable regularity,
and Harbin has every appearance
of a military town. Fighting in
Korea is expected shortly."
sidered he would be at liberty  to dered, $128, as  in  full settlement
deal with the matter by motion ] of the taxes • f the West Kootenay
without notioe at the next   meeting.
Alderman Martin agreed to this.
rhe motion ae to the firemen'*
-1 laries was then put and carried
The West Kootenay Power »nd
Liuht oompany presented a cheque
sbart of the amound demanded.
The Mayor pointed out lhat the
proper owners were no' assi-eeed at
the assessment made last May and
consequently no larger amoun'
could be collected. The city solioitor advised the acceptance.
The oity council then by motion
aocepted the amount tendered
Alderman Rolt objected that the
two companies were probably one
bnt Mayor Clute pointed out that
the two companies, tbe Water and
Light oompany and the West
Kootenay Power companies had
been careful to pieserve separate
entities, that only one had been
aBBessed and that though the city
lost $188 by thus crawling thrcugh
the loophole attended by a technicality there was nothing to be
gained in all probably by an appeal to the courts. The mistake
wae the city's, the Lighting companies had taken advantage of it
this time but the city would be
more oareful the next.
The motion accepting read  that
Power and Light company for
1902 and 1903. Nothing waB said
about the Water and Light company.
Ii was moved by Aldirman Stout
and seconded by Alderman Lockhart that tbe lighting companies be
notified that tbey were not fulfilling their contract with the city as
'bey were not supplying light ast
candle power as they were contracted to do.
Alderman Lockhart proposed and
Alderman Rolt seconded that John
E. Hooper be made city assessor at
a salary of $80 per month.
The M.iyor pointed out that lhe
appointment was merely temporary
and that the present staff could not
possibly make out the assessment
roll.
The motion carried.
Alderman Rolt wanted lo know
when the estimates were to be considered.
Mayor Clute thought that these
would be governed by the assessment roll. He thought a caucus
meeting necessary.
Alderman Stout suggested a
special meeting.
The Mayor agreed to this course,
fixing Monday night.
Alderman Rolt thought tbat data

COSTS OF WORKING.
Last month the Elmore mill on
the Le Roi No. 2 only worked 400
hoars oat of a possible 700, or, to
be accurate, 69G. This was due to
a lack of ooal, to a lack oi oil, to
inability to ship concentrates and
may generally bt eet down to the
account of the severity of the winter It ia probable that by next
■eaaon, guided by the experience oi
thia, the mill will have matters bo
arranged, by doubling Btorage capacity, for instance, so as to prevent
thi* regrettable delay.
The  delay  is regrettable inasmuch as the coats are run up considerably   by   the breaks   in   the
running from  whatever cause in-
duood.   Thts is not generally con-
■idered. The cost of running a small
plant are disproportionate to   the
results. ThiB ie well enough known.
But take the coats of working on
that email plant at $1.80, a supposititious figure used for purposes of
comparison, and take the output of
the mill at 50 tons a day tor 30
dayi.   It will be seen that 1,500
torn are treated at a cost of $2,700
Now let it be supposed that there ia
a break down  ol  one-third from
whatsoever oauee.  The cost of running the plant are not mvtch lessened.   The water costs the same,
althoogh it ia not used, the power is
the same if  rented monthly,  the
cost of superintendence is the same.
A part of the labor may  be dispensed with, Bay $10 a day, prob
ably  over  the  mark, the  oil  iB
■aved,5O0 gallons or $150, aome coal
saved, and the total saving by the
shut down will be  seen. to  have
amounted in the aggregate to about
$300.   That is to say the cost of
running the mill ie $2400 not $2700
and the product of the mill is two-
thirds of 1500 tons or 1000  tone.
That   1000  tons,    therefore, cost
$2400, or was reduced at the rate of
$2.40 per ton, not $1,80.   It will be
teen that in thiB case the reduction
of one-third in the working hours
hai added one-third to the rate of
reduction  of  ore,   and   naturally
mineat hat are anxiously awaiting
the results are  somewhat dubious.
The Westminster Columbian
adds that this would be well supplemented by coming to the head
of Butte inlet. Now Butte inlet
faces Queen Charlotte sound hall
way along the Island. On the other
hand the route as proposed, if it
not come straight down to Butte
inlet, but took its nearest route to
the sea, which would be the Portland canal, it would save several
hundreds miles of railway and
would be nearer to the Orient at its
terminal than if ending at Butte
inlet. Also it would open up the
Liard river headwate.s and would
not run far south of those of the
Stikiue, while the Dease river country would be a straight line for a
proposed short railway to Atlin.
This is in accordance with the Vic
toria project. As far as the shipper is concerned, whether goods
going north bad travel to Portland
canal or to Butte inlet, would be of
little moment just as long as they
had to break journey involving
handling and possible damage. A
railway to Butte inlet would not
help the coaBt oities any more than
one to Port Simpson. If the coast
oities want a direct line they must
get one to run up the coaBt, Bkirt
ing all the numerous indentures oi
the shore line for 600 miles, to connect with tbe terminus of the Grand
Trunk Pacifio. Such a line may
come, but for the traveller from the
east a line branching off north from
the vicinity of Revelstoke would be
nearer if he wished to reach the
Yukon than by first going down to
Vanoouver. Any way the coast
ohooseB to regard the matter, Port
Simpson, or whatever terminal ie
choBen, must prove a great rival.
But the Kootenay oountry would
undoubtedly like to have a railway
running through all the mining
districts of the upper Fraser,
through the Cariboo to the Dease
river country to Atlin. It would
open up as no other line could do
possibly the mining wealth of the
province whioh is its chief asset.

THE NORTHERN RAILWAY.
The Westminster Columbian is
advocating Dr, Bell's idea ior tbe
route ot the Grand Trunk railway.
Dr. Bell seems to be of the opinion
that the new transcontinental line
should pass to the north of Lake
Winnipeg and skirt along the lower Peaoe river, which is northeast
of its upper reaches, and cross that
country between the Slave lakes,
reaching British Columbia well to
the north. His idea is the country
on the lower Peaoe river is better
adapted for Bettlere than that on
the upper reaches, that coal can be
found in large quantities, that the
timbering is better, as also the soil,
•nd also that the Rockies at the
northern end of Britiih Columbia
are lower In elevation than at the
southern end, and that therefore
the engineering difficultits and
consequent expense would be lesa

CHAPTER XI (Continued)
I am sorry. Sir! indeed I ami
Until you began that wonderful
tale I thought 'twas but a merry
game; but, oh, Sirl to see you there
upon your knee, to see your eyes
burning in the dark with true love
for my false mistress—why, Sir, it
would have drawn tears from the
hardest stone mill down yonder.
And ever as your talk went on just
now, a. lept saying to myself, Surel
but it must be a bu heait which
works a tongue like that; and
when you had done, Sir, ahl before
you were halfway through, though
I could not stop you, yet I loathed
my errand. I am sorry, Sir, in-
I ami I cannot go until I be forgiven 1'
'There, there silly girl,' I said,
my wrath quenohed by her r6d
eyes and humbled amendment,
'you are fully absolved.'
She kissed my hands and dried
her eyes, and swept together, with
womau awiftneBS, the tattered
things in which she had masqueraded, and then, as Bhe was about to
leave, I called her back.
'Stay one moment, damsel!
How muoh had you for thus betraying me?'
'Two /.(-quins, Sir,' she answered
with simplicity.
'Why, then, here's three others
to say naught about this evening's
doings iu the servants' hall. You
understand? There, gol and no
more tears or thanks,' and as the
curtain fell upon her, I could not
help muttering to myself, 'What!
two zequins, to undo you, Phra,
and three to mend it? Why,
Phoenician, thou hast not been so
cheap for thirteen hundred years I'
CHAPTER   XII
Grim and angry, all that night
I ohewed the bitter cud of my rejection, and before the new day
was an hour old determined life
was no longer worth living in that
place. I determined to 'eave those
walls at onoe, to leave all my songs
unsung, my trysts uukept, to leave
all my jolly oomrades, the tilt
yards and banquets. But I oould
not do this so secret as I would.
The very paying off of my soore
down in the buttery, the dismissing
of my attendants, eaoh with
1 argease, the seriousness I could not
but give to my morning salutation
of some of those I should never see
again, betrayed me. And thus a
whisper, first down in the vaulted
guard room, and then a rumour,
and anon a widening murmur, the
news waB spread, until surely the
very jackdaws on the battlementi
were saying to themselves, 'Phra iB
goingl—Phra is goingl'
Yes! and the tiding? spread to
that fair floor of a hundred corridors, where the Norman arched
windows looked down four score
feet upon the river winding amid
its shining morning meadows,
bringing a sigh to more than one
silken pillow. It reached the unhappy, red-eyed Isobel, and presently she tripped down the twining stone staircase, the loose folds
of her skirt thrown over her arm
to free her feet, and in ber hand
a sorap of writing, a 'cartel' she
called it, seeming newly opened.
She came to the sunny empty
corridor where I stood alone, and
touched me on .the arm ae I
watched from a lattioe my oharger
being armed and saddled in the
courtyard underneath, and when I
turned held out her hand to me in
frank and simple fashion. How
oould I refuse the proffer of eo fair
a friendship? and, pulling my velvet cap from rnv head, I put her
white fingers to my lips. And was
it true, she asked with a sigh, I
was really going that morning, and
bo suddenly? Only too true, I answered, and, saving her presence,
not so sudden as my inclination
prompted. Much I saw she wished to question the why and where
fore, but of this, as of nothing
touching her stern sister, would I
tell her.
