election.
It is quite likely that Magistrate
Grease will continue to sit until every-
one is heard even if it requires a
night session. There certainly can be
no objection to this iu view of the fact
that the court continued last Saturday
night until nfter 11 o'clock in the

John Houston, Mayor of Nelson, had
nil extremely hard day yesterday.
From early morning until late ut
night he was ou the inn ami as a result of this running and the hard labor, The Minor is this morning in n
position to announce the names nf the
candidates His Worship tli Mayor
has placed in th   aldermanic field.
When   the   Mayor   arose   yesterday
morning and read The   Miner,   as  nil
citizeus of Nelson do before breakfast
ing, ho wii' ���   .ely perplexed.    He had
not expected such a ticket as the independent   citizens   had   placed  in   the
field.  As he read lie saw   visions  of a
future   whon   Nelson   should   be governed by a body   of men instead of by
a single   individual, and   that   single
individual himself, John Houston.    It
was a blow that staggered and he bur
ried   through his   meal   and out  ontu
tho street that he might   confer   with
his henchmen, for   even be at times is
compelled   to   seek his fellow men fur

Houston and his band of office holdeis

Row in Conservative Ranks Started by
a Winnipeg Paper.
Toronto, Jan. B. ���The Globe says:
The row started by the Winnipeg Telegram within the Conservative party
has attained truly loyal proportions.
The Telegram began by abusing the
people of Quebec in a most violent
manner for supporting Laurier instead
of Tapper. It is a very pretty quarrel,
but it need not excite anybody outside I
the Conservative politicians "You p ti f the Boiler Garrifid a Quarter
voted against us, we are out uf power,
yon are a pack of scoundrels. " That
is all it means. It would be interesting to know by what authority the
Telegram uses the name of Hugh John
MacDonald in connection with this last
furious onslaught on French Canadians. That was not exactly the policy
we had been accustomed to associate
with the name of MacDouald.

Ohristiania, Jan. (i. ��� Norway
Sweden continue in a slate of disseu-
ion that makes a war between the
two countries not unlikely. The matter was nggrevated the first of the year
whon Norway flew her Hag minus the
emblem, which signifies her union
with Sweden. The Norwegians thirst
for independence and it is stated the
Radicals have already taken steps to
secure this by secretly alienating the
Norwegians in tho joint arm from
Sweden.

their defences. Norway's chief grievance is a clause in the constitution
which makes a minister who is alone
responsible to the Swedish Rikstag,

iiutes few more men to tho Scandinavian army than she did in 1814, 'iboui

London, Jan, 6. ��� A boiler, while being tested in Hawatts'   ship-buildiing
yard at Barking,   a town about   seven
miles from   hero, burst today   and the
superintending engineer and eight men
were killed.    About  40   persons  were
injured, some   fatally.    The bodies  of
the dead were  frightfully   multilated.
The whole   ship-building   works   was
wrecked.     A lad was  found dead   80
yards from the s-.ieil    of   tbe   disaster.

Manila, Jan. 6 ���A despatch to the
Independence, from MaloloB, the seat
of the Filipino government, says
governors of all the provinces of
zon have aseuibled ut Malolos for the
purpose of offering their lives and
property in adhesion to the policy of
the government. Continuing, the despatch says:
"They say they fought only for the
independence of the Filipinos and are
are now unwilling to surrender to
strangers."
Commenting upon President McKin-
ley's proclamation to the Philippines
issued on Wednesday by Major General
Otis, the Iudepeudencia, which is a
native papor, says the problem presented is most |jrave. It admits that there
aro only two solutions possible,
namely, the Americans' abandonment
of their annexation policy, claiming
that the people are not desirous of absorption into their nationality, or a
prolonged and bloody war. It then
cites the example of the Noble patriots
of Iloilo defying General Miller,"
and expresses n hope for a pacific termination of the crisis, but hints at
rouble.
The official organ the Republican, is
less aggressive,but indisposed to accept
tbe suggestions of General Otis in
their entirety. The Spanish papers are
evidently afraid to comment on the
situation.

Toronto, Jan. 6.���It is likely that
during the present year, the radi ���
cal electrical system will be extended
from Lome Park to Oakville, making
direct connection between Toronto aud
Oakville, 20 miles out, and cutting
heavily into the Grand Trunk passenger traffic from that point. This
system is controlled by the directors
of the Toronto Street Railway. Other
schemes for extending the electric system are on foot.

THEY DO NOT LOOT.
Hong Kong Jan. <i. ��� The papers here
publish a despatch from Iloilo evidently from �� Filipino source which
says that when the Americans arrived
thore they found there had been absolutely no looting. 'Ihoy found a good
government established which met
with the approval of foreign residents.
This disposes of the allegation of )he
inclination of the Filipinos to loot and
kill. They occupied Iloilo ou the same
humane principles which have guided
their actions against their Spanish oppressors. The correspondent, adds that
the reports of nn opposition republic
having been established arc refuted by
the facts that tho government and
general commanding at Iloilo have assured tho American delegates from
the warships that thoy could settle
nothing without orders from the national government at Maloloa.

Laurior's   plan   of     Senate      reform,
Bourinol says :   "In the case of  Canada, a dissolui ion of the elected House of
Commons under   grave   circumstances
Iu apolitical crisis would meet all conditions and a joint sitting  could   then
be wisely had to adjust,   the  difficulty

while   its   members   are   tho creation
hugely of the   pnrty   long   in   power.
Such a system as works   admirably   in
Denmark, has its advantages aud  that
is a Senate parly elected   and   partly
noininat'd.    Universities,   cities   and
legislatures miglit in Canada have the
choice of certain members  for the Upper House. Olio   thing   is   quite   certain, the Upper House   is an   absolute
necessity in   the   Dominion to  ensure
safe legislation and interpose a barrier
against rash government, and a change
in   the   construction   of   the     Senate
should he in   tho   direction of making
it more representative and in the closest possible touch with the  sentiment
of the most conservative and   thoughtful classes   in   this country, where influences of democracy are increasing."
Washington, Jan. 6.���The correspondence published officially in co i-
uectiou with the peace treaty contains
much of interest from the United
States Consul Williams who was stationed at Manila prior the war. In
one dispatch Mr. Williams relates
many atrocities oil the part of the
Spaniards. One of these occurred iu
March 25, when a meeting of natives
was broken up by force, many being
wantonly shot to death and many taken prisoners. The next day the 02
prisoudrt were marched to the cemetery and shot down in n body. Many
of these, Mr. Williams adds were not
participants in the meeting.
He also says that such horrors
though on a smaller scalo were of almost daily occurrence. Ho reports thai
several hundred native prisoners were
disposed of by being placed in low
dungeons in tho oity walls, where they
wero drowned by the rise ot the tide.
adding that, "Cruelties too horrible
for an official report are detailed lo
me every day, and it seems that tin
cry of outraged humanity would soon
compel Spain to abolish middle ate
warfare. "
Ho speaks of the influence of the
church as tlie greater bar to progress

INFLUENZA IN RUSSIA,
The Epidemic in St. Petersburg
Ascribed to Variations of Climate.
London, Jan. 6.���Advices from St.
Petersburg show that thero is almost
universal sickness in that city. The
principal sickness is a severe form of
infiuueza which is ascribed to the unusual weather, which after beginning
with the customary frosts, suddenly
became mild and rainv. Serious floods
in the rivers now aro emphasising
the evils of bad drainage, and sanitation. It is generally remarked thut
the climate in that part of Russia in
which St. Petersburg is situated has
changed in the last few years. Instead of a continuous frost during the
winter there are continual variations
of temperature from one extreme to
another.
Victoria, Jan. 6 ���Another batch of
Kloudikers arrived from the north this
morning, all from Dawson, by the
Steamer City of Seattle. There were
also about sixty passengers from the
south eastern Alaskan const.
The arrivals from Skagway have
newB of a big fire which oicurred there
on New Year's day about 8 o'clock in
the evening. It destroyed the Empire
theatre, the largest vaiioty house in
the city. The cause of the fire was
the explosion of a lamp in the dressing
room of one of the variety actresses,
who was preparing f'lr the performance. The women lost all their
clothing, being obliged to hurry out of
the building with nothing but the
tights and stage drosses iu which they
stood. The loss will be about $15,-
000. Two buildings on either side of
the theatre wero razed hy the fire department, and the store of H. A. Bauer
and Company, two doors away, was
considerably damaged.
According to the passengers, had
any wiud been blowing, there would
no no more Skagway now. A heavy
gale blow from the mountains for several iia.\ s previous, but fortunately for
Skagway it subsided a few hours before the fire.
M. A. Mnhoney, who wns one of
tho Kloudikers who arrived by the Seattle, has broken the record for the trip
out. Ho left Dawson on December 14,
with T. A. Monroe, with whom ho
raced to the salt water ou a wager of
$1000. Mahouey was an easv winner.
J. O. Dutfie, of Deadwod, Colo..
who was a passenger from Skagway,
left the Atlin district on Christmas
day. He brings news of the discovery

J. W. Laucing, superintendent of
.-nnstruction of the military barracks
a) Fort Selkirk, reports that big finds
are being made at the head of the Mc-
Uillan river. Two men loft Selkirk
many months ago to prospect the
head waters of the McMillan river.
They took with them two years provisions and wire last beard from
about 200 miles above the McMillan,
where them are said to havo made a
nig striko. Shortly before Mr. Lancing left Selkirk, a miner named Taylor, arrived with $11,000 in gold dust,
which he said ha had taken out of the
placers at tho head of the McMillan iu
six weeks.
Major Bliss, of Fort Selkirk contingent, is now on his way out. He had
just reached Skagway when the City

there is not a single Russian soldier

Russian soldiers uud peasants havo

however, is the imposition of a royalty of five por ".ent of the.gross value
of the copper produced.
The Milling Review thinks that if
the Department hud intended to discourage copper mining in tho Yukon
it, could not have hit on a better plan.
It is either badly advised, or very
ignorant, or disposed to most niichiev-
ous interference. In other parts of
Canada the royalty on copper is no
where greater than two por cent on
the gross: and why more should be ex
acted in the Yukon,where cost of min
ing and transportation are necessarily
so heavy, is not easily comprehensible
to the ordinary mind. The Government wero encouraged by public opinion when thoy decided to make the
Yukon self-sustaining by exacting a
royalty ou gold; hut it was not desired
that it should be as excessive as it is.
That on copper, excepting to largo
corporations with unlimited capital, it
is virtually prohibitive, Was that the
intention?

MUNICIPAL ELECTIONS.
At this writing there are two candidates in tho field for the Mayoralty,
the present occupant nf that position,
and Mr. H. G. Neelauds, an old resident who stands high iu the public esteem and a successful business man,
For the six positions of Aldermen six
gentlemen havo announced themselves,
Mr, G. Frank Reer, Mr. Henry B.
Thomson, and Mr. P. E. Wilson in the
East Ward, and Mr. Frank Fletcher
Mr. R. M. Macdonald and Mr. A. L
McKillop for tho West Ward. These
latter form an independent ticket,
having no connection with tbe
contest on cither side for the
Mayoralty. We believe that to be
well advised, as cliques or combinations in municipal affairs are not desirable things. We do not know
whether other candidates will offer :if
Aldermen, although from the character
of past administration we would expect a full ticket iu the interest of the
present Mayor. Possibly, too, Mr.
Neelauds may have designs of completing a ticket; but as he has nn personal
interest to serve by his election, and
oonsents to run only for the purpose
of introducing bettor methods of civic
government, we can well believe that
he would be content with any six
gentlemen actuated by the same unselfish motives as his own.
The six who have consented to run
for aldermanic honors aro among onr
best citizens. They have no axes to
grind, no jobs to put through. They
stand for good, clean civic government; that and nothing else. It will
he safe to elect them. It may ne very
unsafe not to elect thorn. Between Mr.
Neclands and Mr. Houston, we cannot
understand how any elector having
the interests of the city at heart can
hesitate iu his choice. Mr. Houston
claims that he has given efficient,
honest, economical government to the
city. That is as it may be. Many
will characterise it as a story fit for
the marines. But granting that it is
so, if tho gentleman supposes that litis the only person who has bruins
enough or honesty enough to credit
ably conduct the affairs of the city he
is mistaken. And hy electing another
whose honesty will partake of a different character, we shull put an end
to one-man rule and to many another
objectionable feature of Mr. Houston
administration. The claim that tl
present Mayor should be elected to
carry out enterprises now in progress
would, if valid at all and in ibis in
stance, be equally valid at Ihe end of
his next term, aim the next, and so on
until old age incapacitated him from
furthor service. Because the business
of a municipality is   continuous,   the
affairs of one term necessarily running
into the next. Let us not he imposed
upon by childish pretences, Mr. lions
ton is not necessary to the government
of this city, however splendid his
abilities and however exalted his
character. And us a change in methods is highly desirable, it will be bettor to make him content with the two
terms he has already enjoyed and tn
put Mr. Neclands in his place.
COPPER MINING IN YUKON.
The Canadian Mining Review,
Ottawa, comments with considerable
severity on the recent regulation governing the disposition of lode chiin s
iu tho Yukon, providing that the Minister of the Interior may grant locations and licenses for mining copper
on certain conditions. These, generally, are that locations shall be limit
ed to one square mile; that boundnry
lines shall run north, south, east, or
west, certainly a most arbitrary nnd
singular requirement, considering tho
topography of the country, and thut
no person can be granted more than
one location within a radius of ten
union. If the ground so located shall
contain iron, coal, or gold, the locator
shall havo no right, to those minerals,
which may be slaked by another person,  A worse feature than any of these,
At first reading, tho Bill to protect
those two members of tho Legislature
may prove a little startling. But it is
not as had as it looks. Neither in the
Dominion nor in tho other Provinces
is it permitted to hold election trials
during a session, and there is good
reason for such a provision. If in
the Lillooet case the question is one
of disputed qualification only, it is
quite proper that the sitting member
should be protected against the penal-
tics iu such cases. We aie not sure
from the wording of the Bill whether
it is intended to sot asido the present
petitions. If it is, an injustice to
the petitioners is contcniplnted, which
is all the less defensible because
wholly unnecessary. It might easily be
provided that the existing petitions
he kept alive until the period of immunity expires. That may be the
intention, but the m-lining in respect
to this point is far from being clearly
expressed,

CURRENT COMMENT.
iu.' American op,-n iinor.
It is stated that, while the Americans will tuke Porto Rico and Hawaii
right into tin' Union in a trade sense,
they will treat Cuba and the Philippines as separate Statss, commercially
speaking Thut is, Cuban and Philippine goods will have to pay the Ding-
ley   duties   to   get    into    the   United
suites,und American products will enter Cuban und Philippine markets
on precisely Ihe same terms as Caiiuil
ian and till other foreign articles;
while Hawaii and Porto Rico will I
regardetd commercially as States of the
Union. If this policy bo actually
adopted, we shall see in it tho American version of un "open door," The
idea would be. of course, lo render
Cuba and the Philippines surely self-
supporting while making them as
free to foreign traders as to their own
people. In tlie case of Cuba, the reason
for such act ton probably rests upon the
understanding that tins island was not
to become a spoil of tho Into war. The
whole purpose of the war was to sot
the Cubans free; and, whatever may
he. thought about the measure of self-
government Whioh it will ho prudent
to allow them, it, certainly would be
farcical to deny them the privileges of
buying goods from anybody but their
liberators on uny pretence whatever.
As for the Philippines, it has been

NELSON'S  FROSTS
THE
LAST   GOLD   SNAP WAS SIX
YEARS AGO.
What People are Enduring Tirough Not
Taking the Frop=r Precautions.
down.    Operations will be resumed as
s ion as the weather moderates.
When the Steamer International arrived at Five Mile Point yesterday
morning, it was found that her plates
had been pierced by the ice so she did
not attempt to come ou down to Nelson.
Many of the residents of Nelson are
now-beginning to recognize the error
of their ways, the foolishness of building summer houses, laying their drainage pipes outsido their houses, their
water pipes an inch or two below the
surface of the ground, and generally
designing their habitations us if they
were living iu California instead of
British Columbia. As a rule tho winters hore aro comparitively mild, and
frozen pipes are few. but from time
to time King Frost descends in his
might, and discomfort is tbe lot of
those insufficiently prepared.
Six years ago, the winter of 1893-98,
there was a similar cold snap to the one
now being experienced. Old residents
say that the thermometer on one occasion reached 80 degress below zero,
while for several days it remained at
H or 10 below. The lake froze over,
navigation was suspended and an excellent sleigh road was made across the
lake. History i>) repeating itself.
Tho lako is again frozen over, and it
seems very doubtful if the steamers
will be able to koep it oueu, although
the steamers are now larger aud more
numerous than they were at the time
of tho last great frost.
Steamboat men who conio into the
city yesterday reported thai, with the
exception of the Narrows, tho river
was practically frozen as far as Balfour, and tnat it would ho easy to
reach that place on skates providing
one kept near the bank. As u result
plans aro already being mndo by more
energetic tor skating excursions to that
pUoe on Sunday.
But while tho frost is a source of enjoyment to the younger members of
the community, householders aro experiencing great discomfort. Thore is
hardly a house in town lint where tlie
pipes are frozen. Many have burst and
Hooded the rooms. The water supply
in tbe city reservoir is failing from
tho same cause, and if a conflagration
were to start now, it is hard to say
where it would stop.
Nevertheless tho hard frost will not
pass away without having done some
good. In tlie fiirture tho houses will
probably bo more warmly built, and
the plumbing more carefully doue,
while the transportation companies
will awake to the fact that open waterways cannot be counted upon with certainty all tho year around.
Messrs. H. S. Forest, C. H. Dixon
and 11. B. Brown of the Suokauo Falls
and Northern Railway, arrived in Nelson yesterday evening on Mr. Dixon's
private car. They will leave this
morning.
The annual general meeting of the
South Kootenay Hoard of Trade will
be held at the Board of Trade rooms
on Monday evening at 7 :iJb. Ihe cancers f.ir the ensuing year will b>
elected at the meeting.
Tlie C P. R. train leaving Nelson at
6 :II0 a. m. makes the same conneo-
tions as did the train which left at
fi MO p. m. Thus the chango of schedule means a gain ot 12 hours in the
trip to the Coast.
A lime light service will be held in
the Salvation Army Barracks tonight
by Ensign Stnigor, of Spokane, en-
tilled "A Torn Bible," and "Sowing
the Seed." An admission fee of 10
cents will bo charged.
Services will be held in the Methodist church on Sunday as Usual. The
morning subject will he "Winning
Heaven by Renouncing Earth," evening subject, "The Old Clock." Services will be held during the week as
usual.
Tho lake was frozen up yesterday
for a distance of about nine miles,
and affords excellent skating. Venturesome skaters were to be seen all
over the lake, and two men walked
across to the powder magazine yesterday morning.
A masquerade will be held on Tuesday evening at the Nelson Skating
Kink, at which prizes will ho given
to the best dressed lady and gentleman, and also to tho most comic character. The admission foo will be 25
cents.

To tbe  ndependent   Electors of
the City of Nelsou :
Having been presented with a requisition bearing the signatures of a
great many of the ratepayers of the
City of Nelson,asking me to stand as u
candidate for the honorable positi.m of
Mayor of onr city at the coming elections ; and haviug~been nrged to do so
by a large number of others; I take
pleasure in announcing that I am a
candidate.
In so doing I feel assured that all of
you desire to see onr City take that
place in Iho Province to which she is
entitled, and to that end my humble
serivces will be devoted.
1 beliove that the year upon which
wa have just entered will bo tho most
important in determining the City's
future; that necessary public works
should be undertaken, and that, whore
practicable, aud in the best interests
of the City, such work should bo done
by day labor; that in tie administration of the affairs of the City there
should be no sectional feeling and no
favoritism remembering that we are
all equal as ratepayers, and have tho
welfare of the City as our common
cause, first, last  and all the time.
I further believe that competent officials superintending the different pub.
lie departments will advance and
conserve the best interests of the City ;
and that a bettor distribution of tbe
City's business among proper committees, will insure a termination ot
the one-man rule of tho past.
If elected, I am ready and willing,
as Mayor, to assume my proper share
m the administration of the City's
affairs;,but I believe that the alder-
.men should be intrusted with a fair
proportion of the government; of the
City.
I will advocate a substantial reduction in the salary of the Mayor.
I will endeavor to ant in tho best
interests of the Citv, and treat my fellow citizens in the same way as I have
luring my lengthy residence here.

no dead work to bo done, neither will

On the Nevada, the most westerly
claim of the group itii immense quantity of very rich float has been found,
and along the trenches which have
beeu dug for the purpose of locating
the ledge single pans of Band have
yielded from 20 to 25 cents. Preparations have been made for a systematic
effort this spring to locate the source,
of this float. Tbe, government trail
crosses this group, and on it a good
camp has been erected close to an excellent spring of water.
On both groups there is an unlimited quantity of good timber, and
the company has ensured the profitable
working of their properties uy very
wisely securing the only steady and
efficient water-power in the neighborhood, namely a grant of 00 miners'
inches from Sandy Creek, where a dam
(ill feet long and la feet high has already been put in, and a flunio line 4200
feet in length has been graded, ready
for the construction of a fiumo noxt
soring. The company will thus be able
ti avail itself, at all seasons, of at
least (10 minors' inches of water under
a head of 700 feet, developing 100
available horse power.
The mill site is an ideal one, sitnat
ed at the foot of a slope near Kootenay
outlet, directly north of the Granite,
one mile distant. The erection of a
20 stamp mill will be proceeded Willi
as snou as weather permits in early
spring, while specifications have
b-'en prepared and tenders called for an
aerial ropeway from the Granite bins
to the storage bins at the mill site.
The ore nan thus be transported at a
cost not exceeding 10 cents a ton.
An evenly graded wagon road is to lie
constructed from the Royal Canadian,
ou which a gravity surface, tramway
will be finally laid. The company
has also acquired some 40 acres of
Wood's preemption adjoining the mill
site.
Tho oi e on both properties is a free
milling quartz, and it is estimated
that tho concentrates will average
from $75 to $1)0 a ton and will be
cheaply treated at the Hall Mines
smelter. Forty-five men havo been
Steadily employed on the property
siuce April, but in the spring the
force will probably be trebled.
Captain Duncan is now iu London
perfecting arrangements with his directorate for the vigorous completion
of the projects of tho company, while
the general business is being looked
after by Mr. .1. Lining Stocks, with
head office in Nelson.
