Ninth Year.
'
T0D_Y COMES THE
BATTLE OF BALLOTS
any of   the   above.    Voters  may  draw
their own conclusions.
Poles Open at Eight O'clock
This Morning
AND CLOSE _T 4 O'CLOCK
Indications La��t Night Pointed  to the
Election   of Mr.  Neelauds���Mr.
Houston's Position,
Today the eleotors of the Oity of Nelson will chose a Mayor and six Aldermen. The names of the several oaodi
dates are already well known to those
who will have the privilege of exercising their franchise. That all mny know
who they are, however, the Miuer pub
lish elsewhere a copy of the ballot, with
crosses opposite tbe names of Qeorge
Hamilton Neelands and the Aldermen on
the Citizens' Ticket. This is how the
ballots should be marked today a��d how
they will be msrked if the eleotors are
alive to their best interests.
There are two polling places; in the
West Ward the west store of the Bank
of British Columbia building and in tbe
East Ward the Fire Hall on Josephine
street. Tbe polls will be open at 8
o'eloek and will remain open until 4
o'clock.
Indications last night pointed to
the election of Mr. NeelandB aud a majority of the candidates on the Citizeus'
Aldermanic Ticket. The work done by
these candidates bas beeu done well.
They have lost no time since their nominations, bnt have put in every hour a<
their disposal in a thorough canvas.
They have been aided by many of the
most prominent men of tbe city aud not
a few of the women have worked iu
their behalf.
The supporters of Mr. Honstou nnd
his Aldermanic Ticket are equally confident of sncoess, or at least appear to
be. It was noticed that yesterday they
cut down their elnim of a majority for
Mr. Houston to CO and oue man w' o
offered to make n bet that Mr. Uai-on
would have 11 majority of that number of
votes found his money qn'o'-'y covered.
There was but little m uey watered,
however.
Mr. H. O. Neelauds. candidate for
Mayor, was taken pud lenly ill yestprda1
afternoon and fur Ihe balance of the dny
was confined to his bed. It is under
stood from statements made by Mr.
Neeland's pliysioian thnt his illness ll
not at all serious and only u temporary
one, aud thnt he may be able to lie out
today.
John Houston, Mayor of Nelson, has
at least oue virtue. He kuows enough
to keep sileut wheu oharges nre made
against him whioh he onunot refute.
Tbe Miner yeBterdny repeated its
charge that Mr. Houston had purohased
from a mill iu his possession lumber for
City work at a price of $3 a thousand
higher than a price at whioh he oould
have purohased tbe lumber elsewhere. In this commotion Tbe Miuer
said:
The Mayor further asserts that ho ia
not interested iu the Nelson l'laniug
Mill (Gray's mill) except to the extent
that "every oitizec of Nelson should hnve
iu local industries."
This is a falsehood.
Does the Muynr deny that he took
possesion ot the same mill in September
Inst under bills of sale givou to him by
T. W. Oray?
Does he deny that at themeotingB nl
the creditors it was reported by Cray's
assiguee, T. M. Ward, thnt Mr. Houston
was in possession of the mill and nil the
lumber and logs round the mill?
Does he deuy thnt the assignee was
powerless to do anything for the creditors in the fnoe of these bills of sale and
the possession taken under them ?
Does he deny that from thnt time
forth the mill wua run in his uamer
Does he deny that Cray wss from tlmt
time only in his employ?
Does be deny that accounts for lumber were sent out from tho mill in his
name?
Does ho deny that T. M. Ward, tho
assignee, has, up to the present, been
unable to realize anything for the creditors of Oruy on noconnt of Muyur Houston being iu possession f
Does he deny that the creditors of Grny
during all this time have Tooognized bis
being in possession ot the mill';'
In oonjlnsion. if all of the statements
made iu Tlie Miner have been inoorreot,
why has Mr. Houston within the past 24
hours, been bttempting to get out of the
prediosment in whioh lie finds himself,
by transferring his luierert in the mill to
someone else?
Mr. ttMMM tali ttatetrt Be ��Mi*l to
PYEO'NEAR.
E liter of the Nelson Daily MiDer:
Sir���A letter in your paper of this
morning signed "Pye O'Near" has
been attributed to me by your evening
contemporary. Will you be good
enough to contradict thiB assertion as
you know it to be false. I have uot.as
you are aware, written a single line for
your paper since I severed my connection with it a couple of monlhs ago.
When editor of the Economist there
could be no possible doubt as to inv
views OD municipal or political matters
and it is, uo doubt, the extract from
that paper which your anonymous correspondent quotes, which has led the
Tribune to the false conclusion that I
am the author of Ihe " Pye O'Near effusion. If I wers handling the subject
I would go your correspondent several
points harder, but in the preBe t contest I have taken uo part whatever,
nor do I intend to do so. Although
but a "Jonnie-came- lately" to Nelsou,
I have always displayed the courage
of my convictions, fairly, openly and
honestly aud have never sought the
shelter of a non de plume when I hnd
a personal attack to make. There is
nothing to be ashamed of in what
"Pye O'Near" has written, but wheu
his epistle is attributed openly to another, and that other feels agrieved at
the fact for reason stated, in honesty
"Pye O'Near" should remove the
stigma*

SAD SEMES OK DEATHS.
CLOSE OF THE
LOCAL CAMPAIGN
ELECTIONS BILL
EOEHALLY PASSED
Two Mass Meetings field
Last Night.
NEELANDS1 SUPPORTERS
They Attend a Meeting Galled by  Mr-
Houston at the Hume Hotel���W.
A. Macdonald Talks.
Metropolis, Ill���Jnn 11-Dr. H. Y.
Mi.ngum. a prominent citizen of this
country died on Dec. 26 of pneumonia.
Twenty four hours later his (laugher
Lucy died, three nays later his wife
a.so died nnd Hit youngest son, Samuel
was buried the following week. Today word reached here that the only
remaining member of the family, thu
grandmother, Mrs. Woiley, is also
dead, all of them having died of the
same disease.
Be.lie, Jan. 11���The National Zei-
tung referring to the French comments en Emperor William's visit
to the French nuibiiHsnbor here, the
Marquis Denoallles, says ; "By tho
Anglo-German alliance conflict in that
part of the world Is removed. Therefore, there can be no question of Germany m any way siding with France
, Kg Mult 0��Mt Mil tain."
The municipal campaign closed last
i ight. There were two mass meetings.
Mayor Houston nt 5 o'clock la.t evening aouounced by dodgers that a
meeting would be held at the Hume
hotel. Previous to this it had been
advertised that a meeting cf supporters of H. G. Neclands would be held
at Mr. Neelands' headquarters on
Baker street.
The Neelands meeting was well attended. At 8.30 o'clock it was called
to order with Mr. G. A. B. Hall in the
chair Addresses were delivered by R.
M. Macdonald, G. Frank Beer, W. A,
Galliher end W. A. Macdonald, after
which, upon motion, the meeting
adjourned to the Hume hotel ha 1
where Mayor Houston's meeting was
in progress. With those already present the Neelands' supporters complete
ly filled the hall. Mayor Houston was
speaking when they arrived. He referred to the electric light and water
plants.endeavoring to excuse his official actions in connection therewith.
He also made an unsuccessful attempt
to rep'y to the chargcw made by the
Miner in regard to the purchase of
lumber from Gray's mill.
Mr. W. A. Macdouald. Q. 0., who
hid entered the hall with the Neelands
faction and who had been called to the
platform was the uext speaker. Mr.
Macdouald criticised the action of the
mayor in connection with Ihe public
works.paying particular attention to the
water works, in connection with which
he accused the Mayor of lack of good
judgment in building a million gallon
reservoir instead of a two million g' 1-
lon reservoir He found fault with
Mr. Houston's statement that every
a derman on h's ticket should be elect
ed. This was the very principal which
Mr. Neelauds and his supporters objected to; that the Mayor shoul I be
elected wilh a solid following behind
him, pledget to support him i o mat
Ier what lis course might he. He referred to the decided oppos thin rnani
tested by the electorate against the on-
man rule aud found fuult with the ooun-
e I of the past year in being so plyuble
in tlie bauds ot the miiyor.
Tiore wns no cily in Canada, Mi. Macdonald said, that was governed iu the
same iiiiim.ei us wns Nelson. Wilh a
continuation of such n policy as was in
effect here the eleotion of aldermen would
be only a farce and uo good citizeu cou d
be expected to take bii active interest in
public affairs. Mi. Macdouald referred
11 Mr. Houston's counectiou with Gray's
mill aud tho purchase of lumber from
that mill for the construction ot the electric light flume nt a price 83 above that
at whioh the lumber oould be bought.
He spoke a word iu defeuse of his pro
fe -sinn and hurled back at tbe Mayor, in
au insult, the statement lie hud made in
iiin public place iu counoil that tbe lawyers of this city were shysters, aud
claimed that they were ns good a claim
of citizens ns auy in tbe city.
The speaker also spoke n word in defense of Mr. Beer who had been singled
i out by tbe Mayor for attaok, aud atated
tin t it wns to men of Mr. Beer's   kiud
' thut the Oity should hold out a welcoming blind,nnd urged the citizens to frown
down the talk that wua being made that
1 a man who bad beeu iu tbe City only u
short time should have no place iu  local
' politioal nffnirs.
Iu conclusion   Mr.   Macdonald asked
' the   electors   of  Nelson present at the
' meeting  to    cast  their  ballots to the
I end thnt  the oity should bo rid of one
i man power.
Mr. W. A. Galliher   followed ou bo-
i half of Mr. Neeluiids, und the Mayor
closed the meeting with an nppeul for
votes today.

TWO MEMBERS RESIGN
A Busy Day in the Legislature Yesterday ��� Anti-Japanese   and  Anti-
Ohinese Legislation-
Victoria, Jan, 11.���Lieutenant Governor Mclnnes today assented to the
bill to declare Messrs. Prentice and
Deane, government supporters, entitled to sit in the Legislature for this
session and prohibiting the Supreme
Court from proceeding with the petitions against them until after the close
of the session. Both these cases were
to have been disposed of the day before the house met. In that of Mr.
Prentice, the point was that he was
not a qualified candidate, not being on
the voter's list, and to prove this,
the collector of votes had been subpoenaed to attend. This official did
not obey the summons because the
Attorney General did not give him
the permission asked for the leave of
his office and the court therefor issued
a new order directing him to bo on
hand tomorrow, when it was exported
he would be declnred disqualified and
tbe seat awarded to Mr. Stoddart, the
late member. The case of Mr. Dean
wns postponed on motion of his own
counsel nutill the 16th. He was elected
..j- only four majority and his opponent, Mr. Martin, relied on being
counted in on a scrutiny of the ballots
a large number irregularly marked for
him having been thrown out by the
returning officer, Mr. Deane voted in
the House on the bill dsclariug himself elected for the session. The bill
to Beat these two government supporters was forced through the House in
advance of the address in reply to tbe
Speech from the Throne, as otherwise
the court would have dealt with tho
trials before the bill could be passed.
The Lieutenant Governor's assent to
the measure will be added to the in
dictmeut against him in connection
with the dismissal of his former advisors, to be laid beforo the House of
Commons.
TWO   RESIGNATIONS.
Today Mr. Tisdale, Government
member for Vancouver, resigned his
seat believing himself disqualified by
reason of a clerk having sold 70 cents
worth of cartridges to a provincial
coustable. Mr. Hall, Opposition member for Victoria, also resigned under
similar circumstances, his olerk having received an order for coal from the
Liout.-Governor who for years has
been a customer uf Mr. Hall's, but on
this occasion had tho coal delivered to
Government House and paid for by
treasury cheque. Mr. Hall will stand
for re-election.
YESTERDAY'S SESSION.
Victoiin, Jan. 11,���In the legislature today a motion by Mr.Holmoken.
urging the Dominion government to
increase the per capita tux on Chinese
entoiing Camilla and to pay three-
fourths of the amount to ilritish Columbia us the province suffering most
by this immigration, was unanimously
adopted without discussion. In answer
to inquiry as to action by OttllWa upon
tin protest of the Japanese against tne
labor regulation act of last session,
Premelr Sotnlln stated that a com-
inuiiication hud been received from
the Domionlon thut the net
would injuriously ulfeot the cordial
and commeraiid teliitiotis between
Japan and Canada uud thnt the Provincial government had been nuked
whether it would recommend the repeal of the act and also nl! tbe anti-
Japanese mid anti-Chinese sections of
private acts. In answer to a further
question as to the intention of lhe gov-
ernmei.t in this respect the Pcinicr
suid that the matter is one of tbe policies to be dealt wilh later.
Attorney General Martin asked to
have taken up  today   the address in
reply to the speech from the Throne
adjourned on Monduy for one week on
his motion. He said that, lhe elections
bill being passed lucre was no reason
for uot proceeding with the address.
The Opoosltion objected, however,
sud tkeudiliesiiUuds  ever, The bill
declaring him e!��"ctedjhaving become a
law Mr. Prentice took bis seal today
on the Government side as member
for East Lilloet.
A Government bill to amend the
placer mining act was introduced
today reserving pla- r mining
rights to liritish subjects and to companies Incorporated not registered or
licensed iu the [province. It will not
affect rights already acquired hy other
than British subjects.
Lieut. -Governor Mclnnes today forwarded a reply to the petition from
the mass meeting of Victoria citizeus
held to protest against the action of
the legislature in passiug a bill to
declare elected two supporters of the
Government in danger of being immediately unseated by tho courts. The
petition read:
"That the resolution passed at this
meeting be transmitted through the
proper channel to His Honor the Lieut.
Governor with a respectful request
from the electors of Victoiia that be
will see his way clear to constitutionally withhold his asseut to tho bill
therein referred to.''
In reply, His Honor quotes Mr.
Chamberlain's recent despatch to the
Governor of Newfoundland as follows:
"Even a Governor who was to some
extent iu touch with local opinion,
would be taking a serious step if in
response to a petition such as has been
addressed to me, be refused to assent
to a measure of local concern, which
has neeu duly passed by the legislature
and if he failed to find other Ministers
prepared to assume responsibility for
his action, and able to secure the support of the legislature, his position
would become untenable.''
Ths Lieut. -Governor then proceeds :
"My Ministry have the confidence of
the legislature by which the said bill
was duly passed, and I would point
out to you that it is an assembly
which has met for tho first time, fresh
from tbe electorate, and that even were
I in sympathy with tbe tenor of the
afor. raid resolutions, I have no warrant fi.: believing that a rofeanl cu uv
pert to follow the advice of my Ministry in this matter would receive tie
approval either of the legislature or of
the electorate. For this reason, and
in view of the principle enunciated in
tho above quoted despatch from Mr.
Chamberlain, the authority of which
I cannot question, I could not, to use
the language of ono of the said resolutions, 'Consistently withhold my assent to the bill theriu referred to'."
WHEN THE AMEER DIES.
The Afghanistan Throne will Become
a Bone of Contention.
London, Jan. 11.���Advices from Oa-
bul says that the illness of the Ameer
of Afghanistan is so seri ms that bis
his death is imminent.   His conditio .
is being watched with keen interest
in London and Calcutta official circles,
as bis death is certain to be fol'owed
by a contest, for the throne, in whioh
Eng'nnd will Intervene,
Prince Habbiillah, the Ameer's eldest son by a non-royal wife, will he opposed by the Que n in behalf of her infant, Prince Mahomed Omar. The
partisans of tin two conti st> nts are u -
most evenly divided. The Queen is of
a Etrongly mason ine character as was
shown by her person.illy leading the
army in an attack on certain robe's
who revolted sometime ago whl'e the
Ameer was absent from the onpital.

MASTERS TODAY.
For twelve months   past   Mayor
Houston has been leading the electors of this City any sort of   dance
he chose to set his heart  upon;   today the electors   have it entirely   in
their own hands to  decide  whether
that exceedingly headstrong and dictatorial personage shall  be  continued as Mayor.    He has been   master for a year; they are masters   today.  In other cities they are masters
always, for in  no city in the world
outside of Nelson does a Mayor regard himself as other than the servant of the people.    Masters today,
they have to say   whether they are
content to remain slaves for another
year, or whether they   shall   assert
their manhood and elect a candidate
who will not forget to respect  himself by repecting them.
The time for   preaching or lecturing is past.      It is not a mutter   of
argument now, but of ballots. Some
there may be, howcA., who are too
indifferent to vote at all.       If there
be any of these, we hope it is not too
late to open their eyes to the wrong
they contemplate   doing   the   community of which   they form a part.
There is no doubt whatever  that   a
vast majority of the respectable element of the City are persuaded that
both the moral and  material  interests of the people   require a change
in the Mayoralty.      The disclosures
of the past day or two   show   this,
even if there was nothing else.   Mr.
Houston's explanation of that lumber deal is   no   explanation   at   all;
it would not impose   on   a   fourth-
form school   boy.       Mr.    Houston
as lumberman has been selling lumber to Mr. Houston as Mayor, to be
paid for by the City at   Mr.    Houston's price, a lower offer   by   three
dollars per thousand   having   been
refused.    That is the   whole   story
in a few words, and it has not been
and cannot be refuted.    No one acquainted with municipal affairs   has
the least doubt that   Mr.    Houston
has been exploiting his position   lor
his own advantage.    No one doubts
that this was his reason for seeking
the office,   and   is   his   reason   for
striving so desperately to bold on to
it.    A man of that kind   should not
be Mayor of Nelson, though he were
otherwise u competent    administia-
tor, which he is not.     His botching
in connection wilh the electric  light
service and waterworks amply demonstrates this.   Persuaded of his unfitness,  the better   class   of   people
arc anxious to defeat   him.     They
are anxious because  they    lake   an
interest in the proper government of
the City.    They have a right to cull
for the assistance of every man who
believes that   wrong-doing   should
not be rewarded with public honors,
and no man to whom duty is sacred
has a right to ignore the call.    This
is not a time for   indifference,   but
for earnest, active work.

If this part of the country," it  con-  this a bargain was secretly made by

we have no doubt that   our   output  civic methods,   this   job could   not
the past season    would   have   fully | have been perpetrated
doubled."    Talking  of advertising,
we observe that Sandon   itself   has
two excellent papers,   The   Mining
Review   and   The    Paystreak,     so
brightly conducted that we are sure
they must   be   widely   read.    Also
New Denver has its Ledge and   Silverton its Silvertonian, while Kaslo
has an old established and ably conducted weekly in The   Kootenaian.
If the Slocan district is not well advertised, it is not through   want  of
the necessary agencies.
We are not sure that there is any
cause for complaint at  all;   and   if
there is, we doubt if   it   should   be
charged to the want of advertising.
In England they   make   their   fuss
over gold, and will continue   to   do
it.    Among the London miners gold
is the only metal.    They have  been
educated to this, the process having
been begun as long back as the first
Australian   excitement.      Australia
and California took   possession   of
them, and when the hold   of  these
began to show signs of  weakening
the Transvaal loomed up   to   complete the lesson.    It is all gold,gold,
gold,    excepting  for   a   little time,
when it   was   Kimberley diamonds.
Nothing so vulgar as silver and lead
could excite their cupidity.     When
the Klondyke fever broke out, there
was an immense   stir   in   London.
Looking   across   from   there   now
towards this region of Canada, they
see little else than the Le Roi.    The
Payne,    out   near   Sandon;   which
gives out only silver   and   lead,    is
probably   worth half a dozen of  it,
yet for every once the Payne is mentioned the Le Roi is named  a   hundred times.      That is due to the superior fascination of gold over silver,
and as it cannot be cured it is   useless to quarrel with it.
The Sandon paper   has   no   real
cause of   complaint.      The   Slocan
district, as it says, leads   the   Province in the value of  output.       Let
the speculators of tbe London  Mining Exchange keep up their excitement over gold, to the exclusion of
other metals;    let   the   prospectors
who are under the influence  of  the
same fascination, pursue their will-
o'-the-wisp in search   of  other   Le
Rois or   War .Eagles;   while   thus
engaged the operators in   the   rich
and never failing Slocan will go on
developing mines of priceless value,
to roll up dividends in   comparison
with which,in the final summing up,
those of mere gold   properties   will
probably prove insignificant.      The
Slocan may not be   as   gay   or   as
fashionable as those others, but    it
contains the wealth that tells in the
long run.    Our contemporary   need
not lament.    There are men shrewd
enough to see that two silver pennies are worth more than one gold
one, and these   in time will emancipate themselves from   the   glamour
of the brighter metal and   flock   to
the    Slocan.      And   even with the
glamour still upon them they   will
be drawn thither,    for    Slocan    is
rich in gold    as    well    as    silver.
Temporarily it may  be eclipsed, but
lhe Slocan   is   destined   to   be   the
greatest glory of British Columbia.

The next tonst was thnt of the army and
navy coupled with the nnines of H. II.
Bowd( n and C. Palmer, followed by It
M. Maedounld in the song, "The King
of Old England" whieh was deservedly
encored. Vice president T. Moiley replied to the toast of the "Sons of England" in a very happy speech and then
"Our Island Home" was sung by O.
Newling who gave "Jehu Peei" as au
encore.
Fred Starkey, iu replying for the
Grand Lodge, referred to the fact that
though only started in 1885 the order
now couutid in Canada IB.000 members, 250 lodges, and had expended
���200,000 in benefits aud insurance and
180,000 in funeral expenses. The toast
of the British Enipiro wns coupled
with the names of F. Fletcher, L. M.
Lay and G. Bobs, after whieh C. B.
Winter brought down the house with
two very funny songs with banjo
accompaniments. E. P. Whalley and
T. J. Sims answered to tho toast of
the visitors, the former being especially
happy with some most whimsical
anecdotes.
The toaBt of the ladies was answered
by Mr. E. A. Crease, who congratulated himself on being selected, ns the
task was invariably deputed to the
youngest and best looking bachelor
present. Mr. Hepburn then gave a
song on the buujo. after which the
President answered to the toast of
the Lodge of Nelson's Queen. Mr. F.
Fletcher then proposed the health of
absent. Sons of England, R. M. Macdonald, with apologies to the shades of
Paganini, following with a very clever
imitation of the violin.
The toast of the Press was answered
by H. W. R. Moore, and then a very
pleasant evening was brought to a
olose by evorybody singing '' God Save
the Queen."
acles iu the Way of the Nelson
und Bedlington,
Unexpected troubles have arisen in
the way of locating the line of the Nel
son & Bedlington railroad, There is an
I'dian reservation near Ryker's and
the proposed right of way of the Hue
runs through that reservation. The
Indians are now objecting and state
Ihul. they do not propose allowing the
line tn run through their lends unless
they are paid therefor. They are also
asking a high rale of compensation, to
which the railway company >vill not
agree.
Negotiations are now proceeding between the representatives of the railroad and lhe red men, but in the meantime there is a serious hitch. It is
hoped, however, that a way will soon
be found out of Ihe difficulty.

Some difficulty is anticipated in the
location of tlie Nelson & Bedlington
line this side of the international bom d-
nry, and Mr. Peter Larson, who has the
contract for constructing the line, lett
00 Tuesday for the scene of action. It
is anticipated that the grade will be
taken ns straight as possible from Cow-
au & Co's contract to the Crow's Nest
Pass line. This part of the line will be
built anyhow whether they get running
powers or not over the C. N. P. so that
the Crow's Nest Coal can be conveyed
direct to American points.
Iu the meantime everything is progressing satisfactorily, about half the
right of way bus been cleared, and the
grading is being proceeded with.

HOSPITAL MEETING
Monthly Meeting of Directors of Kootenay Lake  General Hospital.
The monthly report of the Kootenay Lake General Hospital was read
Tuesday evening at a meeting of the
directors of tbe hospital nt, which there

A. Turner, Ihe secretary Mr. F. W.
Swnnnel, Judge Forin, and Messrs 11.
8. Kinghorn, A. Ferland, D. Me.V-
thur and A. G. Shaw.
The report showed that, the. expenses
of the hospital for the month of December amounted to $752 1(1. In this
conneotiou it may bo remarked thnt
the city now contributes nothing to
the support of this institution although they admit free patients. The
quarterly grant from the government
of $750 is, however, due  this  month,
Dr. Hall, the physician of the hospital, also presented a, report lu which he
showed that the hospital had received
24 new patients during the month of
December. It was also announced that
arrangements hiulbeei imide with the
management of the Ymir mine for receiving their employes at the usual
rates.
AT THE  COURT HOUSE.
The new towusite of Kitchener is
now boing platted. This towusite is

run in opposition to Creston.
Mr. C. E. Beasley, secretary of the
Nelson Hockey club, is endeavoring to
arrange a match to be played here

on the 20th instant.
It is stated that the C. P. R. has
decided to commence the continuation
of the Crow's Nest Line from Kootenay Lauding to Nelsou as soon as the
snow is off iu the spring.
Mr. C. W. Riley, foreman at the
Athabasca mine, who has been very
sick for tbe past four or five days, was
brought down last night to the hospital opposite the Phair hotel.
Kaslo is now without its hilarious
"Comique" variety theatre which
closed on Saturday evening last.
Sandon follows suite this week wheu
the variety house that has beeu riming there for some time past will be
closed.
Tho death of Mr. Robertson, bookkeeper at Mr. G. O. Buchanan's mill
is announced, He has been ill for
some time. Mr. H. Byors, who was a
friend of tho deceased, went up.to
Kaslo yesterday afternoon to attend
the funeral. The casket was supplied
by D. Mc.Arthui-& Oo. of this city.
The city engineer yesterday informed
a Miner reporter that ever since 1 p.
in. on Monday there has been an
abundance of water, the flume diverting the water from Anderson Creek to
tho reservoir being in full order. The
only explanation he oould givo of certain consumers being short of water
since the disappearance of the cold
snap, was that the pipes must have
since frozen up.

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 a
candidate for tho honorable position of
Mayor of our city at tho coming elections ; and having heen urged to do so
by a large uumlier 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 our Oity take that
place in the Province to which she is
entitled, and to that end my humble
serivces will lie devoted.
I believe that the year upon whieh
we havo just entered will bo the most
important iu determining the City's
future; that necessary public works
should be undertaken, and that, whore
practicable, and in the beBt interests
of the City, such work should be done
by day labor; that in tie administration of the affairs of the City there
should be no sectional feeling aud no
favoritism remembering that we are
all equal as ratepayers, and have tho
welfare of the City as our common
eauso, first, last  and all the time.
I further believe that competent officials superintending the different public departments will advance and
conserve the best interests of the City;
and thnt a better distribution of the
City's business among proper committees, will insure a termination ot
the one-man rule of the past.
If elected, I am ready and willing,
as Mayor, to assume my propor share
,n the administration of the City's
affairs;,but I believe that the aldermen should bo intrusted with a fair
proportion of the government of the
City.
I will advocate a substantial reduction iu the salary of the Mayor.
I will endeavor to act in the best
interests of the Citv, and treat my fellow citizens in tho same way as I have
during my lougthy residence here.

After his final conference with the owners, Mr. Aldridge explained the plans to
some extent iu regurd to this eeterprise,
to a representative of the Record. Asked
iu regard to the capacity of the new
smelting plant, Mr. Aldiidge said:
"We will probably make it a 1000-ton
smelter, so as to be able to handle all
ores that are likely to be offered. We
do not believe iu erecting a 200 or even
a 400 ton plant bere, ns we oould find it
more economical to haul the ores to

The cost of building a smelter of 1000
tons daily capacity will exceed 8500,000,
and will give steady employment of upwards of 500 men when completed. The
stack alone will require 800,000 brick
and the buildings in couuection iu proportion.

Judgment has been given by the full
court, at Victoria dismissing with costs
the appeal of the plaintiff in the suit,
of Clark vs. Haney, which was an action brought hy way of adverse claim
hy the owners of the Olivette mineral
claim against the Legal Tender application for crown grant. The ground involved is considered of great value owing to its location between the Le Roi
and Nickel Plate in Rossland.
This action was tried at Nelson before Judge Walkem in October, 1897,
when judgment was reserved after n
lengthy argument, the trial occupying
two days; subsequently in June, 1808
Mi. Justice Walkem delivered a long
written judgment which was printed
in the Miner upholding the Legal Tender, and from this judgment the present appeal was taken, resulting as
Staled above.

A Miner reporter yesterday interviewed Mr, ti. M. McDowell who is
erecting large sampling works at Rose-
berry on Slocan lake. Mr. McDowell
said " I wish to contradict the statement that recently appeared iu the
Spokesman Review to the effect that I
am being backed hy Colorado smelter
men. This is absolutely untrue. 1 have
nothing to do with the Colorado smelter men. The money is being put up by
a private American Syndicate,In which
I am personally a large holder. We
have set aside fSOOjOOO for the purchase
ol'ores of nil kiuds and in all quantities
cash for which will be paid Within 21
hours of ils receipt.
"The contract for the supply of the
requisite machinery bus been let to the
Jei.k's company of Quebec, and Mr. (',
W. McArlhur, who recently put in the
Porto Rico  plant, will erect the neces-
huiidings ami install  ihe   machinery,
Mr. MdAt'thtir has had great experience in this line of business having put
no less I him 11 sampling works and two
C'hloruialioii plants in the state of Colorado. The plant will be driven by
���team and the machinery, which is the
best obtainable, is so devised that the
ore will only have to he handled once,
the other operations being automatic.
The plant will have an outside capacity
of Hal tons daily, and should he in active operation inside of six weeks.

settlement of the fisheries question is
this: If tbe United States Congress
passes a bill giving American fishing
aud mercantile vessels a bounty, it will
be useless for Newfoundland to agree
to give tbe Americans free bait in
Newfoundland waters iu return for free
entry of Newfoundland fish iu American markets, because tbe proposed
bounty would place American fishermen in the same superior position regarding the fisheries as they are now.
The Canadian and Newfoundland representatives will probably arrange a

FACTO
Mr. E. J. Coyle, district passenger
agent of the C. P. R., has beeu in the
oity a couple of days in the interests of
his company. In reply to a query by
a Miner reporter yesterday Mr. Coyle
said that the present service via Slocan
Lake would be continued until all danger of delay by ice in the Columbia
river had passed away. Inasmuch as
passengers from Nelson can reach the
Coast 12 hours earlier under the existing temporary arrangements no one
here would complain greatly if the
danger contined for some time.

CURRENT COMMENT.
Erastus Wiman thinks that Canada
can bring the United States to terms
commercially, if she only bides her
time. It may be of some local interest to observe that when the writer of
this paragraph propounded this in an
article iu the Century Magazine several years ago, the United Stat��s department of agriculture asked permission to reply to it. The editor of th��
Century stated that this reply would
be made at an early date, but it never
appeared.���Victoria Colonist.

London, Jan 11.���At the semi annual
meeting of the Union Bank of London
to-day, Mr. Schuester, the governor,
during the coinse of his report, said
the United Sli.tes had become a most
important factor, which must  nut be
overlooked in forecasting the future.
He added that the remarkable activity
of trade iu the United States after a
successful war and prospective new
markets together with abundant harvests, had created an unprecedented
trade balance iu favor of that country
whicn had already made itself felt on
this side aud for the first time he believed it might be said that it was not
Europe which had financed the United
States but New York which had financed Europe.

Unfinished Worsted Coats

correct thing this season.
And what is correct can be
found here at any time. We
