House Disagrees With Senate
on Provincial Judges
Ottawa. July 14.���In the House yesterday Solicitor-General Fltspatrlch
speaking on the Provincial)-udgeB bill
handed down from the Semite, moved
that the amendment to the bill, striking out the clause granting three
judges to Quebec, be not eoncurred In,
He siKike at length against the
amendment and said It was a violation
of the British North America Aet to
refuse these judges to the provinces
for whieli they were asked by the
legislature, and   eoncurrei!    in hy the
bar of the province, composed of Conservatives and Liberals alike. The
responsibility '"' snob cases was divided. The Dominion created liabilities
which the provinces were called upon
to bear, anil the provinces also created
liabilities which the Dominion had to
Those who argued that all power
rested with Federal authority failed to
read sections 99 anil sections Bfl of the
II. N. A. aet together. It was a proper thing for the rejected people in
the Senate to refuse to stand hy thc
mandate and verify   the   will  of  the
-olc as guaranteed to them in the
Constitution, but tlie Commons, elected hv the people and rcsponsihle tu
them, could not afford to do so.
Mr. Kortier spoke strongly iu favor
of the restoration of the clause for appointing three judges in Quebec. Mr.
Hergeruii argued that the judges wi -c
not necessary. Mr. Monet said that
Quebec would have to struggle against
the wrong done hy the Senate.
He said that the action of the Senate was a violation of the system of
Quebec, us framed by Sir ticorge K. |
Darter in l��r.4, ami the constitutional
rights of the Province as embodied in
the B. N. A. aet. Mr. Burgess (Liberal) said that the Conservatives were
opposing the bill in thc hope  that the
judgeships would fall  to   themselves,
Mr. BttnBon protested against the
aetion of the Senate. Mr. Foster
said that the Premier did not want
this matter voted upon on its merits.
It was too good an opportunity for
opening the campaign against the
Mr. Foster nourished a cartoon in
LeSolell dealing with Orangemen anil

Premier Laurier said that if any
friend of his or any newspaper in
Quebec had made an appeal to racial
or religious passions he^was not ready
to support them. lie hail never in
his life done anything that could be
construed in any way to appeal to
racial or religious passions and he
was not ready to support them.
Ue met the Opposition on their policy. He would ask Mr. Foster to
endeavor to silence thc vile sheets
that was making attacks on Mb race
and religion. In regard to the hill
he stood on the platform of Provincial
rights. The Senate had the power
but not the right to change what was
the very basis of our Constitution,
They had a right to oppose the tyr-
rany which the Senate was imposing
upon the rights of the Province and
the will of the people. The House
then divided on the motion to amend
the bill, which was carried by t!8 for
to 23 against, witb a majority of 4.1
for the Government.
The greater part of the evening session was taken up on canal estimates.

The most brilliant garden party
of Queen Victoria's reign lias proved
quite ineffectual in dispelling the
anxiety and gloom hanging over Great
Britain. The escape from Kumassle
of Sir Frederick Mitchell Hodgson,
the (Iovernor of the Gold Coast Colony,
and his wife and party, and the safety
of the majority of those who so long
were in danger of massacre at the
hands of the Ashantis. created a
momentary feeling of thankfulness
and jubilation.
Hut this was quickly dissipated by
ttie news of thc disaster at Nitral's
Nek anil the gravity of the news from
China, A week that opened with
high hopes, from all quarters of the
globe where Great Britain's interests
are imperilled, closes with none of
these hopes realized, except as regards
Asliantie and even there an Knglish
column still awaits relief.
In Soutli Africa the Nation has prepared lor though it did not really

the disaster of Nitral's Nek creates
dismay. It is no exaggeration to say

the end of the long drawn out struggle. The signs do not point to a

The Nelson Wholesale Merchants'
Association, organized last night at

city for the advancement and protection of thc interests of the city as a
wholesale centre. Several of the
prominent firms of the city were not

London, July 14.���Though hope still
struggles against thc conclusion that
the silence at Pekin is the silence of
the grave, the official admissions in
both the United States and Europe
that the diplomatists have adopted the
pessimistic views held by the Consuls
at Shanghai, have quieted those attempting to reason against the circumstantial evidence that is becoming
so cognizant.
The Chinese assurances and edicts
appear to observers here to be merely
part of a plan to break cautiously the
news of the tragedy and delude the
foreigners with a tale of Imperial
guiltlessness. But. if the bombardment mentioned in United States Consul GoodenOW'B last message occurred.
It must have been carried out by Chinese regulars. So the plea of Imperial defense of the Legations seems to
fall to the ground.

The following letter receiveil by the
Miner  tliis   morning   is    cheerfully
given room ill these eolunies:
Nelson, July I Ith, 1000,
To the Editor of The Miner.-Dear
Sir: When the present Council whh
eleoted the property owners felt eoiill-
ilent that they would hold the Mayor in
cheek, but Instead, 1 do not think thut
nny siniill town enn show ti worse example of Tamiiinny polities, than   the
citizens were treated to during this
summer, ami It is very questionable
whether the City receiveil more than
mi cents on tlie dollar for u groat doa!
of the worii done,
Now tube the Mayor's organ of the
11tli inst mnl read the tiiiiiiieiul condition of the City as there published,
it is misleading In everything. Take
one item: l.lectrie Light Works, it
states that the proposed 815,000 is all
'expended except 81,745.53, Then read
the tabulated Btatement at foot. Construction expended, 1900s 87,309.73.
Where   is   the   balance '.'    Tlie   other
items of expenditures  come   out of
The same under the head of waterworks,     We are told Hint  the 815,000 I
askeil fin- Ih all expended with the exception   of   8511.80,   hut   it   does   not I
show us ;i statement.   Under the head ���
of sewers he shows out of the 830,000
asked for there will he S14.fl-IN.IKI to
When .lobn Houston was defeated
in 'us the statement given thc publio
was Unit they had in the city coffers
Home 8300 odd cosh, whereas the new
Council found in   reality   a   ilelleit   of
Us lino odd when a proper statement wns
giveu. This system of financing was
Inaugurated by the present Mayor,
and is Increasing e��ery term. He would
no doubt give the city a marble front
if the citizens would mortgage their
souls. Is it not time to call a halt on
this "to hell witli the expense"   style
of running our city.'
Now the present Mayor's pledges
when lust elected were retrenchment,
city Wharf nnd fixing up linker
Street.    Where nre they'.'
Had the money Hint lias been needlessly spent on outside streets, especially Josephine Street between linker
and Victoria Streets, lieen devoted to
linker Street it would lie in
good condition tnday. Did the fact
Unit the Mayor owned the corner of
linker nnd Josephine have any hearing on this piece of extravagance?
. It must certainly appeal to every I
ratepayer that at tlie prem'iit Stage of I
our growth and tlie state of bur streets
and majority of our buildings, that
bud linker Street been stone curbed,
und tile big hole now covered by the
bridge at Ward Street properly tilled
in. and six or more Inches of broken
Stone rolled in to the present roadbed,
that not only Baker Street, hut Vernon Street, and all tlie other adjoining streets, could he put into excellent shape, and improved yearly, at
one-third the oost of Axing part of one
street and Inter on when our city ban
grown larger n more perfect system
of pavement would he in order.
The city wharf is a disgrace, and
had that matter been handled intelligently, the present structure could
have been improved and protected on
the lines laid down by the late Council which would have served until
the city could have afforded an entirely new wharf.
No explanation is given why the
8t5,iKiti .1 per cent, debentures could
not be sold, or bow much it is expected to realize on the 4 per cent.
proposed issue.
Now as a summing up, on the
Mayor's own statement, all that is
left to expend of the proposetl issue is
8-1,000.    Now   every ratepayer knows
Unit this Bum will not, fix linker Street
on the lines of the Josephine maaadam, especially when tlie big gap
ut Ward Street has to be properly
Hut here comes tlie rub. If W0 add
together 814,048 balance on Hewers,
81,748 balance on electric light
works, 8511 balance on water works,
it may leave   a   balance of   04,000 odd
to he expended on streets���that Ih,
provided the debenture money is expended on what it is voted for. which
of course, it would not lie.
I wonder if the taxpayers generally
know Unit our Mayor is not now qualified uml   could   not   qualify for  the
ollice lie holds.
The citizens owe it to themselves
nnd their city to turn down tllOBO bylaws, ns thoy can only assume Unit,
under tlie law the law the money is
not spent. They could then, in all
probability, get  a  proper  statement
and pledges from the Council Unit the
necessary money, and no more, would
he properly expended anil in a way to
benefit tlie whole town.
