beyond   the  present   terminus  of   the
street cr,r lino in Bogustown yesterday
and went over tho  grounds  which the
Triiinway Compnny is   converting into
recreation grounds nnd park.  It is snfe
to sny thnt but few residents of Nelson
have any knowledge of the large territory of  level  ground oast of  the city,
nor just how beautiful tho  lnrge trees
mako it.    But  the Tramway Company
will cbn.ige nil this wheu tho line is in
full   operation   to   Lake Park, which
occupies  a  sploudid situatiou  on   tbe
sboro of the lake somo distance beyond
the  Nelson   Foundry, and   tbeu hundreds of Nelson's citizens will enjoy a
pleasant: ride to the lako front.   There
is   a  very   line   site  for    reoreation
grounds   laid   nut whicli is  now being
cleared,and there the principal basebnll
and lncroso matches of  the season will
be held. A ginnd stand will be ereoted
to provide comfort for  the  spectators.
Beyond, the  recteation  grounds some
few hundred  yards thn company  will
have a park  that will   be one of  tbe
finest   in   the   Province.     Thore   are
many vory largo   troeB and a oonplo of
picturesque   streams    that    meander
through  the  woodB and tuimiltuonsly
empty themselves iuto Lnke Kootenay.
There is a most magnificent site for a
park  nnd   when  the  company gets it
cleared up  there   will  bo a park   tbat
Nelson  will   be proud   or.    The  oars
will bo running to   it within a onnple
of weeks and as tho hot weather comes
on   it  will  be a plonsant retrent, as a
cool breeze is invariably blowing down
the lake.   It  is  the intention of   the
company to have rogular band concerts
nt the park during  tho summer and to
make  things comfortable   for   picnic
paitios,   oto.    There   is  an   excellent
beach   which  will   make  a  splended
plnce for bontiug.
The annual meeting of the Nelson
Liberal Association was held last night
at Fraternity Hall. One hundred and
twenty-live Liberals were preseut.
Tho lirst business before the meeting
was the election of oflieers for the ensuing year. The officets eleoted were :
W. A. Gallibcr, President; E. C. Arthur, Vice President; G. O. Tunstall,
Jr., Sooiotary J. A. Gibson, Treasurer;
executive committee, John McLeod,
John Hamilton, G. Frauk Boer, A. M.
Johnson, William Rutherford, James
Baunermau, R. C. Campbell-Johnston,
Joseph Lapniute, J. H. Matheson, Dr.
Form, Thomas Madden and S. S. Taylor.
The prinoipal business which occupied most of the time of the mooting
was a motion to the effect that the
Liberals of this riding wonld not recognize the introduction of party politics in the coming contest. An amendment that tbe matter be not dooided nt
the meeting, but. thin tho question of
putting n straight party candidate in
the field be referred to the executive
was moved, but after a loug debate, it
was voted down by GO to 1)0. There
was a decided movement made to endorse Houston and several speakers
strongly urged in a diplomatio manner, that be be endorsed, but the meeting would not endorse him, nnd ns tbe
Houston forces flaw that they would be
defeated an adjournment was decided
upon. A meeting of the executive
oommittee will be held this afternoon
at 5 p. IU. in 8. S. Taylor's oHioo, and
this meeting will probably deoide
what course the Liberals will follow.
At all events last night's meeting
positively sottlod the matter thnt ibe
Liberals will not have a straight party
eaudidate in the field iu the npp oach-
ing elections.

No doubt is expressed by either of

stated that the nomination has been

as follows: "It hns been definitely

influenced wo snrposo by tho tbongbt
t'lat if thoro is to bo a scramble thoy
mny as well bo in it. In Nelson tho
Conservatives have remained truo to
thoir ideal, und have nominated an excellent candidate. In voting for a
Good Government candidate or a Provincial Party oandidate we may well
be iu doubt as to what we are doing;
thero is no such doubt in voting for Mr.
Fletcher. The principles for which lie
stands include those of tho ether Opposition parties. He is against tbo
Martin Government, aud is quite as
strong for good government nnd tho
Province as the lenders who arc coining tlieso catch phrases in the hope of
imposing on the vteak minded And
through him and the likes of him wo
shall finally reach still wnti r in our
politics. Mr. Fletcher is an able mnn,
whose influence would bo on the safe
side if elected, which we sincerely
hopo ho will bo. Tbe Mil.or would bo
glad if the uiiti Mnrtin Liberals would
forego a nomination of thoir own, aud
turn in to tbu support of Mr. Fletcher.
Thoy can hardly hope for success ou
their own accoi nt, and tbey can havo
little sympathy with the quack principles professed by political mongrels.
Tho eloelion of a majority of Fletchers
would clour the atmosphere in this
Province, nnd patriotic Liberals and
Conservatives alike must desire this
first nnd above nil.

A GOOD NOMINATION.
The Conservatives of Nelson have
nominated Mr. Frank Fletcher as their
oandidate in the pending election. It
Is one of the very fow intelligible
nominations so fnr made in tho Province; what it stands for is easily understood by all. Tho Miner is us
strongly as ever of tho opinion that wo
sball never have rest in our Provincial politics until tho peoplo divido on
the old established party lines. And it
believes the Conservatives never had,
and nevjr will have ngaiu. ns fuvorn-
ble an opportunity for forciug that
issue. Mr. Murtin has formed a Government composed of Liborals, and it
was his deBiio to appeal to tbe oonntry
as leader of a Liberal Government.
Why the Conservative leaders did nut
drop their differences and accept his
challenge is a question thnt for many
years to come will afford to tb3 people
of this Provinoe a vast deal of amazement and amusement. It will bo snid
that Mr.Mnrtin failed toonny his convention, and that a majority of Liberals refused to recognise him as lender. That is quite tmo, but, pray,what
business was it of tho Conservatives?
It played into their hands, if they but
had the sense to tnko advantage of it.
There was tho prospect of immediate
party gain, aud tho certainty in the
end of compelling the adoption of the
only party system und-r which it is
possible to hnvo stable government,
There was danger, it may be pleaded,
Of driving the Liberals into tho Mnrtin
oamp.   Thero aro thousands of Liberals
in this Province whom   no   consideration  and   no combination of  circumstances could induce to support a Government    led   by   Mr. Joseph Martin.
To   hold back out of   regard for them,
and  to form into a variety   of  parties
with one or more of which thoy might
fuse, may   bo magnanimous, but  it is
a sort of magnanimity that ia not prao-
tised   iu   party  warfare,   and   a   ski!
also   whioh   thoso Liberals themselves
will bo tho first to oharaoterlse as ox-
tremely quixotic.   Thero was no njoos-
sity   for   it, and   reasonable   Liberals,
we are sure, did not expect it or desire
it.    Tbey   could   bide  their time, nnd
meanwhile givo a helping band  to destroy  a   Government   which   inspires
distrust, and   to hasten tbo time when
there will   bo a division on lines  thnt
will  lead to n more settled nnd rational state of   things  in   onr Provincin!
politios.
This opporiiiiity of years has beon
thrown awny, nnd in tho coming election we nro to havo such a variety of
parties and variety of platform) that
the ordinary voter will be too bewildered to know whnt to do. A Government party wo cnn understand, It is
a party that is in, and that is determined by book or by crook to stny in.
Its polioy is cnniprohensiblo. It Is to
promise everything in sight, nnd anything out of sight thai contains tho
possibility of n vote. Then we havo
Good Government panics nnd Provincial parties, aa if wo wore not all for
good government nnd the Province.
The Libeials, too, will put up caudi-
ates, although divided ou Mr Martin,
HE CAUGHT A T A HTAR.
The candidate who tackles Mr. Fer-
nio, in Southeast Kootenny, will find
himself opposed to n man wbo knows
how to strike. He wns given a few
minutes at Mr, Martin's meeting at
Feriiie (he other night. Wo make a
short extract from the report of his
speech as given in Tho Free Press,
partly as an example of his skill iu
fence, nud partly because of the intrinsic merit of the extract itself:
' "I do not expect to hold my own in
a debute with Mr. Martin. He bas
in,nl" his living with his ni.unh, I
have made mine with my hands. Mr.
Martin asks why I nm opposed to his
Government. My priucipal rensou is
because ho hns been unable to got any
support from auy pnblio men of prominence in the Province and only one
newspaper, and that pnper only a short
time ngo accused him of being dishonest. There must be something wrong
with a man who has not the support
of either the press or the influential
men of the Province. Mr. Martin has
a grout denl to sny about corporations
and appeurs to be hostile to them now.
Ho said tbo same thing in Manitoba,
but lie was glnd to lsnve there in the
pay of one of the biggest corporations,
and I expect after this election is over
he will be glad to take the pay of soma
corpoiution or other. He is pretending to bs tho friend of the working-
man and the opponent of corporations
to suit bis own ends, and is trying to
make (rouble between capital and
labor, and any oue who does this is no
true friend to tho workingmau. Capi
tnl nnd labor are necessary to osoh
other aud should be friendly. Anyone
who tries to brood distrust between
them should bo put down."
This last is oven moro applicable to
our own Mr. Houston, who is a more
nrrnnt demagogue than oven Mr. Martin, which is saying a great deal.
The Mayor of Nelson is not a groat
man, but ho is great enough to make
no conocnlmeut of his contempt for the
publio spirit aud intelligence of the
peoplo of this Oity. Ho begins by tell-
iug tbo Council that ho will take the
management of oivio affairs into bis
own hands, and direct thorn just as
ho pleases. Ho then ndopts the principle of day labor in currying on certain
work, iilthnngh nn expert for whose
services tbe city pays n bnndsomo an-
nunl stipend snys the work could I e
done mote cheaply under contract.
Tbo macadamising of Ihe blook on
Josephine street will   cost ifi!,500;   the
City Engineer estimated the cost at
$l,!i00. The oity is paying the difference, $C00, to mako votes for Mr.Houston In the Proviuoial election noxt
month. Tlio Mnyor is guying rock
drillers $8. 85 a day ; the highest price
paid by railway contractors foi precisely tho samo olnss of work is 18,50 a
day. The ditferonco comes out of tbo
pockets cf the ratepayers, nnd is a
further contribution to  Mr, Houston's
electioneering   expenses.    It  is not
every candidate who can hnvo his brib.
ery lulls paid ont of the publio taxes.
And no other city in Canada except
Nelson would submit for a day to such
barefaced imposition.

LOCAL  NEWS.
The conmiitteo which had charge of
the production of Pinafore met yesterday and wound up the buaineis in connection with it. The accounts were
punned and when nil are paid there will
be 18(15 to the Rood, which is a veiy
satisfactory showing. The ptooeedl
will go towards providing u pipe otgan
for St. Saviour's Church, whose clenr
was instrumental in getting up the
opera. A heartv vole of ihiinks was
tendered Mr. Melville Parry for his
Indefatigable efforts In making the
affair tho sneoesa it was. The committee impressed its thaulcs to Fred
Irvine & Oo., the Hudson's llav Bay
Stores, Lawrence Hardware Company
aud others foi their geimrons assistance. A meeting will probably be
called for 8 o'olook Thnrsday evening
to organize a permanent operatic society. When that is done two operas will
probably he gi\on each year, in the
sprniR and fall. At yesterday's inciting tho committee showed its appreciation of the efforts of Herr Steiner
by voting him a substantial increase
over the amount asked by him. Mr.
Halton, who painted the scenery, was
also granted a gratuity.
Tnylor & Hannnpton, acting for the
West Kootenay Brick and Lime Company, the Nolson Manufacturing Com-
pnny and Kwoug Wing Cbong, the
well-to do Chinese merchant, have
servod notice ou tho city protesting
against the granting of the pnvilogo
to Lapoiute & Uroft to use clay from
Josephine Street, below Vernon, for
the manufacture of bricks. Tho contention is that as the other companies
have considerable nionoy invested nnd
went outside of the city limits, as it
waa not considered such a privilege
oould be gained iu the city, their interest should be considered. Farther
thnn that tho oity cunnot grant the
privilege af naing tho street for a
brick ynrd to anyone unless tho peoplo
vote on aud carry a bylaw to tbnt
effeot. Au injunction will be applied
for tomorrow to prohibit the now llrm
fiom continuing the manufacture of
bricks, nnd au interesting contest iH
promised. Tho Chinaman hns property whioh ia damaged by tho operations of the brick yard. The other
companies aro willing to tender for
the earth if tbe city wnuts to dispose
of it nnd in this way thu city cun derive Bouie benefit (torn it.
