Late Conductor a Popular ami
Honest Official���Eng.
McNabb's Feat.
The case of Fawcett vs. C. .P. *R.
came up yesterday nt the supreme
court sittings and attracted the largest gathering of spectators yet seen in
the court room at this seBSlon. The
action is the most interesting on the
docket from a local standpoint and its
outcome will be closely watched.
Outside of the local features attaching
to the case, a keen legal battle'is
h��ing waged between the solicitors
for the respective litigants, every
step in the proceedings being contested with spirit, A special jury is
sitting on the trial.
Tha plaintiffs are the mother and
father of the late Conductor Fawcett.
Both were present in court yesterday
when the case opened and remained
throughout the day. Their solicitors
are the linn of Elliot tit Lennie, with
Charles Wilson of Vancouver, as counsel. The C. P. R. 's legal representative is E. P. Davies of Vancouver, accompanied by Mr. D'Arcy, the company's claims agent, und II. E. Beasley, foimerly superintendent at Nel-.
Tbe evidence for the plaintiffs was
put in yesterday. A large number of
witnesses were called and testified.
% The efforts of tbe plaintiffs' solicitors
were directed toward establishing that
Fawcett met his death while performing his duties in the ordinary way and
that the defendants' negligence in
permitting a car to go out with defective brakes was the direct 'cause of
the fatality.
At the close of eke plalntl-oV case,
counsel for the defeuce moved for a
non-suit ou the ground that negligence had nut been made out. Argument was heard on both sides. His
Lordship reserving his dcislon On the
point until today.
In connection with the death of Conductor Fawcett, The Miner's readers
will remember that a record breaking
run was made from Robson to Nelson
by tbe train which brought in the
injured man for treatment at the hospital. The train was in charge of Engineer McNabb who brought her into
the city at a speed which was many
minutes below the best previous time,
and wbich has not since been approached. The fast rnn thus made
was oue of the most dramatic episodes
of the accident. The late Conductor
Fawcett was a popular and trusted
trainman, lie had the reputation of
being scrupulously honest and assiduous in the discharge of his duty,
qualifications which had won bim
promotion a short time prior to the
untimely accident.
Recommendations in the Report of the
British   Empire League.
Toronto, Feb. 11.���The executive of
the British Empire leagne which
meets in Ottawa on February 13 in
its annual report, just issued, dealing
with South Africa, expresses a strong
cdnviction that an Imperial conference of representatives from all the
self governing, colonies and the mother country should be held during the
present year in England to consider
the many questions effecting the safety and welfare of tbe empire. They
consider the time was never so opportune. Committee-also favors the establishment of a combination of the
military and naval defensive powers
of the empire, and urges the Canadian
parliament to reorganize the Canadian military force upon broader lines
and in accordance with the spirit of
modern warfare. It al6o favors the
formation of a royal navy reserve in
Canada, the passing of an insolvency
act together with the nationalization
of the telegraph and cable systems.
Manager of Arlington Mine

Why American Capitalists Should Not
Be Allowed a Foothold.
Montreal, Feb. 11.��� The Montreal
Star today contains the following:
The announcement that Mr, James J,
Hllli president of the Oreat Northern
railway, has secured large holdings
with a view to the ultlmute control of
the stock of the Crow's Nest Pass
Coal company seems to have set tbe
people of liritish Columbia thinking
about the result of such a deal. There
appears to be u general impression
thut if the Crow's Nest coal lands.
''which Includes practically the only
ooal deposits on the mainland In British Columbia fell Into the hands of
Mr. Hill and the Oreat Northern
railway, there will be an end to the
Canadian smelting industry and that
the vast quantities of ore taken out of
the British Columbia mines will In future be Bnieltcd und treated in the
United States.
Mr. John Houston, ex-mayor" of
Nelson and the representative of tbat
town in the province is a guest at the
Windsor. Spouklng to a Star reporter,
Mr. Houston suid, "The acquiring of
the Crow's Neat coal lands by Mr.
.Iannis J. Hill and the capitalists behind htm, is simply the first Step In
securing the control of the C. P. R.
That statement looks like a bit of romance, but it would not be very difficult for the powerful financial interests which Mr. Hill represents to secure a majority of the common stock
of the great Canadian railway.
Though I have no love for the C. P.
B., because In the past It haB been
more than selfish, 1 think the time
has come when every Canadlun should
oppose Mr. Hill and the interests
he represents securing a foothold In
Canada. Even if it means the government ownership of railways, Mr.
Hill and his associates should be
made to keep to their interests on the
other side of tho line. As a resident
of British Columbia, I am opposed to
Mr. Hill securing control of the
Crow's Nest coal lands, and I think
for the Dominion parliament to grant
a charter to construct a line of railway from the coalfields south of the
boundary   would be  nothing short of
Mr. C. D. Mackenzie, manager of tbe
Arlington mine near Erie, died early

By-Law Introduced to Raise
Remuneration Eight Hundred Dollars.
Aid.   Selous'   Proportionate
Voting Motion Withdrawn.
Business Transacted.
The principal feature of lust night's
cooncil was the question of the mayor's salary. The matter was introduced by Alderman Paterson in the shape
of a bylaw in. which all previous bylaws on the subject were repealed and
the remuneration of the chief magistrate placed at 83,000 per annum instead of $1,200 as at present.
The first reading of the measure
went through without discussion,
and council went into committee of
the whole for the second reading with
Alderman Selous in the chair. This
developed opposition.
Alderman Selous opposed the increase in the mayor's salary on principle. Under the Municipal Clauses
act he pointed out, the maximum
salary a corporation could pay its
mayor was 82,000 and he considered
the maximum was too high for a
small city like Nelson to pay. He
agreed that the sum suggested was not
too much for the services rendered but
in his opinion tbe mayor should wuive
the extra 8800 from patriotism. lie
wished it distinctly understood that
in his opinion the present mayor had
proved himself so far a first class presiding officer and a hard working official, but that bis objection on the bylaw was based exclusively on the
ground that the city could not afford
to increase its expenses in this direction at the present time.
Mayor Fletcher interpolated that
his experience of the mayoralty was
that the mayor's salary did not go to
him personally but to the varioua
applicants for assistance.
Aldermen Irving and tlillett agreed
that the mayor's work was worth 82,-
000 but that an increase jusb now
would be inadvisable.
A motion by Aldermen Irving and
Paterson for a second reading was
carried on the assenting vote of Aldermen Paterson, Irving and Madden,
contra Aldermen (iillett and Selous,
the mayor not voting.
After the second reading Alderman
(Jillett moved that the third reading
be laid over a week. Aldermen Madden and I'aterion moved tbat the
third reading be proceeded with at
once. The division on the amendment
was.yea, Aldermen Paterson and Madden, contra. Aldermen Selous and Gil-
lett. Alderman Irving and the mayor
did not vote. The original resolution
was then carried.
Alderman Selous' notice of motion
regarding a petition to the legislature
for un amendment to the Municipal
Clauses act providing for voting on
money by laws in Nelson on the basis
of taxes paid by the individual then
came up. The matter was placed in
the form of a resolution by Alderman
Selous, but opposition developing on
the part of Aldermen tlillett and Irv
ing, the resolution was withdrawn
without going to a vote.
T. A. Stevenson offered to buy the
ice on the eity reservoir at the rate

In connection with the signing of
corporation checks a cliauge wus made
whereby the city treasurer will sign
checks In future with the mayor, Instead of the chairman of the liniince
committee jointly with his worship.
Time will be saved by thu change
and as the treasurer is under heavy
bonds, the course is quite legal.
The fire, watei and light committee, Alderman Irving, chairman, presented a report dealing with a number of   important   matters:
1. That an oil filter and six cups
be purchased for the electric light
2. That u 314 Inch nozzle for the
Felton wuter wheel be purchased.
8. That a valve be placed In the city
water main ut the center of the intersection of Falls and Latimer

the Are hull to enable the wagon to

8. That Mr. Mcl'hce, superintendent of the electrical system, have
charge of the whole system of electric
lighting and employes of the department, thnt he bo appointed inspector
of wiring under bylaw 74, that all applications for electric light service be
reported on by him before being sanctioned by the mayor, that he make a
monthly report with suggestions und
recommendations to tbe mayor, such
reports to  be presented to   tbe  com
mittee and that he make all electric
light connections authorized.
The report was adopted by the
council on motion of Aldermen Selous nnd Madden, with the exception
of clause 7, which was referred to the
engineer for a report as to cost.
A tender for water service supplies
ws read aud accepted with the exception of item of service cocks. This
was the only tender received on time
in reply to the notice sent to the
hardware merchants.
A communication was read from J.
D. Prenticd, provincial secretary, advising the council of the appointment
of Alderman Irving and Jacob Dover
as license commssioners and of Alderman Selous and II. R. Cameron as
police commissioners. The letter was
placed on record.
On motion of Aldermen Madden and
Paterson the council petitioned the
department of public works to so alter the plans for the government
buildings here as to provide for a
clock tower and bell in order to set a
standard of   time for the city.
Bylaw 80, covering amendments to
the health bylaw was finally considered and passed.
This concluded the docket of business. The members present were,
Mayor Fletcher, Aldermen Irving,
(Iillett, Madden, Selous and Paterson.

Phenomenal Assays from the
Lenora Mine on Vancouver Island.
News of Slocan Mines���Some
Miscellaneous Mining
Vancouver, Feb. 11.���One of the
richest strikes of refractory ore ever
made on Vancouver Island was uncovered two days ago in the Lenora
mine in the Mount Sicker district,
one of the best known sections of
Vancouver Island. The ore goes
from 8300 to 81,000 a ton in all values,
silver, lead and gold, and there is
said to be much ore that will go
8500 to the ton. The mine is now
shipping 100 tons per day to the Ta-
com'a smelter. The find has caused a
good deal of local excitement, and
the vein of rich ore is pronounced by
mining men to have every indication of continuity.
��   ���   ���
Preparations are being made to resume operations at the Noble Five
mine, says the Paystreak. It is the intention to work through the Last
Chance No. 3 tunnel. The drift on
the ledge in this tnnnel has been
driven to the end line and it is the
intention to continue the w6rk to
prospect their ground. At present
there is difficulty in getting timber
up the tunnel as the Last Chance and
American Boy are working the tram
to its full capacity on their own material.
Being unable to renew their contracts with the smelter companies on
favorable terms, the Whitewater management is stacking the ore at the
Whitewater, and now has nearly six
hundred tons of sacked concentrates
piled in tbe vicinity of the K. tit S.
track. The mine and the mill is
wonting right along, but shipments
will not be made until an equitable
rate can be   secured from the   smelter
������ ���. ���
James Hickey is in from the Glad
Hand group on the east fork of Cottonwood creek. The property is looking well and the owners expect confidently to bave a valuable showing
when the work now planned and under way is completed. A tunnel has
been started at the edge of the creek
where the lead outcrops and this will
be driven some distance. Good depth
will be secured uetween the first'and
lower level, and if the ore holds good
the tonnage blocked out will be considerable. This property and tne
Robin Hood group hold the palm for
development in the east fork eeution.
���*- ,  s
A strike has been made on the Ida
property. The claim is located on the
Morning Mountain mineral belt and is
being operated by a local syndicate
under the direction of Charles Parker, mining engineei. Development
was started recently, the efforts being
directed toward locating thu vein in
place. This has been accomplished and
the fact demonstiatcd that a strong
lead of mineral crosses the claim.
The vein has been opened at four
points and is a characteristic Morning
Mountain leud. Work is to be continued and further bright reports arc
expected shortly.

St. Petersburg. Feb. 11.���The ministry of the Interior' at lust officially

in large sections of the country owing to the failure of the oropii An
official announcement Issued today
says there has been a complete failure
of the crops In the governments of
Kherson and Tomsk nnd the territory
of Smolensk, while similar conditions

that dve and a half million will be

With a Paid Fire Brigade Re
auction on Insurance
Rates Probable.
The attitude of the Underwriters'
Association in the mattei of rates for
Nelson is always of considerable local
interest, and the opnions of a well
known insurance man will be regarded as carrying some weight. A. T.
Ettinger of San Francisco, inspector
for the Commercial Union company,
was in Nelson yesterday .and "discussed
the matter from the standpoint of the
companies interested   in Nelson risks.
"1 cannot speak for the entire
board," remarked the insurance
man, "but I believe tht the conoes-
ions which the business men would
secure in rates would more than compensate them for the additional cost
of the proposed fire brigade. The
question has not yet come np for discussion at the underwriters' board, so
fur as I am aware, but I believe thut
the rates would be lowered not less
than ten per cent, if the city of Nelson would establish a paid brigade
properly organized and a lire alarm
system. Another point which I think
should carry weight Is that business
men would derive material benefit
from the additional protection they
would receive. No business man who
has an honest fire can recover the total amount of his loss through the
conflagration, water, stoppage of business, etc., and means wbich would
reduce the danger of fires spreading
must appeal to the business men.
There cannot be the least doubt that
the Underwriters will denl liberally
with the city in event of the board's
views on this point being met, and I
am glad to note tbat steps are being
taken in that direction at the present

Nelson  Daily Miner, Tuesday,   Februpay is, 1900
The Nelson Miner
Published   Every  Morning  Except  Monday
���BY TUB���
The outlook for the year 1M1 in
mining operations is most promising
if oue may judge from the statements
made by mining men.
Rev. J. G. Shearer, traveling organizer of the Lord's Day Alliance,
delivered a very interesting lecture on
"Sunday ObHervance" in the Congregational church on Sunday afternoon.
The eloquent lecturer is reported to
have strongly condemned Sunday
newspapers. In doing so he does not oc
cupy a unique position. Many worthy
people condemn Sunday newspapers.
But they do so without properly
understanding the situation. It is
contended that the production of a
Sunday morning newspaper implies
the desecration of the Sabbath
through men laboring on the seventh
day. That is not true to any material
extent. It would be true if said
about tbe production of a Monday
morning paper, for this reason���most
of the work done in preparation for
the publication of a morning newspaper is performed before midnight.
The reporiorial staff has been engaged
all afternoon and evening gathering
tbe local news, tbe major portion
of the type has been set, the editorials have been written, and, in short,
but very little remains outside of the
press work for the early morning
hours. It will be seen, therefore,
that the production of a Monday
morning paper necessitates the major
portion of the work being done on
Sunday; and, of course, to that extent
the Sabbath is "desecrated." The
same cannot be said about the Sunday
paper. It is really a paper prepaied
on Saturday afternoon and evening
and circulated on Sunday morning.
Perhaps it is complained that the
Sabbath is desecrated by the distribution of the paper to subscribers or.
Sunday morning and the placing in
their hands of a secular publication.
Well, would the cessation of this
practice render the community more
pure or be more conducive to Godly
conduct on the Sabbath day? We do
not think so. How many people
content themselves with reading
nothing but religious publications on
the Sabbath? Not many, we think;
and the number who do not are not
such very bad people either. If the
matter is looked at faiily and dispassionately it will be seen that this
howl about Sunday newspapers is a
piece of poppycock, based on ignorance of the true conditions surrounding the publication of a Sunday
morning paper, and inspired by a
desire to curtail to an unjustifiable
degree individual liberty. Let ue
suppose for the sake of argument that
the Sunday morning papers cease publication at once. What is to be done
with the Monday morning papers, the
production of which necessitates
much labor being performed on Sunday? Surely this gross desecration of
the Sabbath day will not be viewed
with equanimity by those who now
raise up their bands in horror at the
spectacle of a Sunday paper! Will it
be argued that in order to properly
observe the Sabbath we must do without both Sunday morning and Monday
morning   papers?
We   pause for a reply.
The skating carnival to be held to
morrow evening at the rink under the
auspices of the Ladies' Aid should De
well patronized. The proceeds will be
devotedato a moBt   worthy purpose.
The Miner cannot publish the communication from "Coldfeet" except
over the writer's signature. This
paper cannot be used as a vehicle to
roast Nelson's civic officials hy anonymous correspondents.
There is absolutely no truth in the
runnr that Mrs. Nation has been engaged by James J. Hill to go to Ottawa and work for the pnssnge of the
railway charter he is applying for.
Besides, Bhe has a fight on her hands
Recent reports which have reached
the coast cities tell of more suffering
at Nome, that inhospitable stretch
of beach improperly called a mining
country ou the Northern Alaskan
coast. If men choose to put their
hands into the fire they deserve to be
burnt. Nome is a fake of the rankest
kind and always was.
The brief interview which ia published in another column with A. T.
Ettinger, of San Francisco, regarding
fire insurance rates will be read with
interest by Nelson business men. The
advantages of a paid tire department
in any city the size of Nelson are obvious and it would appear that the
time has arrived when earnest consideration should be given to the question of establishing one.
Mr. Chas. A. Gregg, foimerly editor
of the Victoria Globe, and a well-
known British Columbia journalist,
has accepted the position of editor of
the Nelson Miner. Mr. Gregg is the
right man foi the position; full of
energy, clever, a hard hitter andj a
forceful writer. We shall look forward with renewed pleasure to our
Nelson exchanges.���Kamloops Standard. ���

One of the most extraordinary cir-
cuinstaDcds in connection with the
stirring events of the , past few years
is the change which has taken place
in public opinion, not only in Great
Britain but throughout the world,
regarding Emperor William of Germany. Only a short time ago he was
scoffed at and ridiculed everywhere.
He wus In some quarters styled the
"mud monarch." Now he is looked
upon us one of the ablest statesmen
in Europe, and his recent ostentatious display of friendship for Great
Britain has won for him the respect
and esteem of the millions of subjects
of King Edward VII. It will perhaps
bo found that the Influence of his
illustrious grandmother had much to
do with his change of attitude towards Great Britain.
At a special meeting of the council
of the Trail Board of Trade held on
Friday evening last a resolution was
passed asking that the Associated
Boards of Trade at their annuul meeting to be held on February *.��Hth at
Greenwood should urgo tho Dominion
government to encourago the establishment of a leud refining works by a
grant for a term of years of a bounty
of S3 par ton upon all lead of Canadian origin smelted and refined in
Canada.   .
A very interesting story comes from
Montreal to the effeot that William
Ogllvie, governor of the Yukon is to
be replaced by a western man. If the
change is made it will occasion great
surprise. Ogilvie is a very able man
and has done much in the way of improving conditions In tbe Yukon.
His removal would be learned of with
ftry general regret,

A Reason Why White   Gardeners Cannot,Compete With Them.
T)r. C. J. Fagan. provincial health
officer, left this'afternoon for Ottawa,
says the Vancouver World. He will
interview the government in regard to
several matters affecting quarantines
in the province, and while away for
about a month will also attend a meeting of a tuberculosis conference
which is to be held *n the east in a
few daya. Speaking of the circular
recently issued by himself, regarding
the purchase of vegetables from Chinese, Dr. Fagnn said that while its
suggestions were bearing Home fruits,
jft there would be a good doal of
difficulty in the way of stopping the
system of buying goods from the Chinese. He had asked a gardener in
Victoria why the white growers did
not work hard to get the held at once,
and reply was that there were difficulties not usually considered. In
Victoria, a large number of houses
kept Chinese cooks, and in these cases
the Chinamen would buy from their
own people all the time and from no
one else.

Why is it that I cannot read
like others at night without
getting my eyes tired and
inflamed ? Why ? Because
your eyes are defective, and
unless you wear glasses that
will correct the error the defect will become chronic and
incurable. Ninety-five per cent of eye trouble can be cured^
by wearing glasses.
In all your purchases does not by any means prove that you
are studying economy. This applies specially to the purchasing of groceries. Groceries, as you know, can be purchased
at almost any price���cheap goods for little money, and poor
goods lor less money. Cheap goods are expensive at any
price, while poor goods are worthless. Then there are goods
termed high class, and good goods, also reliable goods.
High class goods, good goods, and reliable goods, we
constantly keep in stock. The other class of goods mentioned
are handled, but not by us. Therefore compare our prices
with the quality. The result will be, Hunter's goods are the
cheapest, and satisfaction assured.
