son's most highly respected and   sub-
| stantial citizens,was waited upon this
morning by a delegation   of   business
[men and aftor a short conference  for-
Imnlly announced   his   willingness   to
become  a  candidate  for   the mayor-
ilty.
Aid. Mclvillop   is   therefore   in the
ffield and will remain in it no mutter
whom elso may be nominated, lie bus

to become a candidate but declined.

morning Aid. Mclvillop answered
"Yes.' In case of a contest ho was
promised tho hearty support of every
member of the delegation, which
promise was pledged with a handshake.
With Mr. McKlllop in tbo Held it is
not likely that any other citizen will
offer himself us a candidate. Those

West Ward Aldermen. Tho chances
ure, therefore, that Mr. Mclvillop will
he the unanimous choico of the eiti-
-.'ns.

THE HOUSE
IN LONDON
Broderlck and   Bryce   Tilt
Over Terms to the
Boers.
Sir Robert Reid Paints Gloomy
Picture of Affairs In
Africa.
London, Dec. 13.���Considerable irri
tation was aroused during today's debate of supplies in the House of Commons. Sir Robert T. Reid, Q. C, Liberal, painted a gloomy picture of the
conditions in South Africa. He snid
that after a fourteen months war
costing ��5,000,000 per month, rebellion was prevalent, fnmine wus threatened and this might be followed by a
native rising. An attempt to place
the Colonies under military rule, he
added, would imperil the very^exist-
ence of the Empire. He thought the
time had now come for offer-
ring the Boers terms uot
inconsistent with British Dimin-
ion. AH ideas of unconditional surrender should be discarded. Mr.James
Bryce, Liberal, suggested granting n
general amnesty to tlie Boers now in
arms us legimate combntants. The
Government had no right to treat the
Boers as rebels. Tbo negotiations
should not be entrusted to Sir Alfred
Milner, tbe British High Commissioner who was an object of almost universal distrust, including at least half
the Queen's subjects in   South Africa.
Mr. Wm. St. John BroderiOK, the
Secretary of War.hotly challenged the
statements about Sir Alfred Milner.
de declared that whatever else it
might do, the Government would never weaken the power of the responsibility possessed by Sir Alfred Milner.
Sir Robert Reid's speech, Mr. Brod-
erick, asserted,wns impracticable, unwise and mischievous, lie had gone
out of his wny to gratify the Queen's
enemies. The Government was perfectly willing to offer terms for surrender so long as it could not be interpreted as a proof of weakness and
thereby causing a prolongation of the
guerrilla warfare.
After further recriminations the report of supply wns agreed to. During
subsequent discussion in committee
of wnys nnd menus, the Chnncellor of
the Exchequer, Sir Michael Hicks-
Bench, promised that a considerable
proportion of tlie cost of tho war
should be obtained from tbo Tians-
vnnl. He added that a treasury commission was about to proceed to the
Transvaal to ascertain its assets and
their taxable capacity. Sir David
Barbour bad been selected for this
task. The loan resolution was then
agreed to and the House adjourned.
Mr. Chamberlain said that Great
Britain had proposed to establish
cheaper postage with the United
States, but Washington had not been
prepared to entertain the mutter.
Lord Crnnbourne, Under Secretary
for the Foreign Oflice, said he regretted that Canada was excluded from tho
most favored treatment by   Germany.
But, he explained, in the absence of
a commercial treaty by Germany,
there was no remedy present.
Ottawa, Dec. 13:���It Is generally
understood by those in the confidence
of Ministers that some provision will
be mado for Canada's soldier boys who
havo returned, and those who have
yet to return, maimed for the reBt of
their lives as the result of wounds
received in battle, and others who
have never fully recovered from the
effects of enteric fever. The question
is likely to be brought up and Bottled
in the next Parliament.
THE GERTRUDE SAFE.

INCREASE DUTY ON FLOUR.
New York, Dec. 13.���A sensation
has been caused at Buenos Ayres, says

the American Minister at Rio has requested the Brazilian Government to
increase the duty on Argentine flour.
Tbo Argentine   explorers have sent a
telegram to the Minister nt Rio requesting his Interference to prevent
the realization of the supposed
scheme. Garcia Mom, the Minister
of Agriculture und former Minister
at Washington, says that Argentine
flour is better than the American and
he has no fear of its consumption falling off.
THE IRISH LEAGUE.
Again Denounce Landlordism and Demand its Abolition.
Dublin, Dec. 13.���The Nationalist
Council resumed its session today, Mr.
John Remond presiding. After resolutions hud been adopted amending tho
constitution of the United Irish
League and making tho Nationalist
convention an annual fixture, Mr.
Wm. O'Brien made himself more popular with the delegutes by moving B
strongly worded resolution in favor
of tlie abolition of landlordism in Ireland and the transfer of the soil to
tho occupying proprietary. Ireland's
struggle, he declared, shonld continue
unceasingly until the landlords were
force to abandon the present intolerable system of dual control. Ono
branch of the Irish League, continued
Mr. O'Brien, will devote its time to
bringing to the doors of landlords,
land grabbeis und their castle allies
the inconvenience of landlordism.
This resolution was adopted amid tbe
greatest enthusiasm.
FOR FARMERS TOO.
AlaBka Will Provide Farms as Well as
Mines to Newcomers.
Seattle, Wash., Dec. 13.���Prof. C.
C. Georgeson, special agent of the
United States Agricultural Department in charge of the experimental
station in Alaska at Sitka, has arrived here for the purpose of making his
annual report to the Government. He
thinks Alaska will be ultimately as
promising a field for agriculture and
stock raising as it is now for mining.
Speaking of his experiments in Alaska, Prof. Georgeson said: "There is
not the slightest doubt that grain .inn
be matured almost anywhere in Alaska. I have this ycur obtained samples
of perfectly ripe barley, oats, wheat
und rye from several points in the
interior as far north as Eagle. I also
grew flax at Sitka the firBt year."

GEEAT BRITAIN
HAS ASSENTED

In   Chinese Agreement.
Important Amendment In Extradition Treaty���Foreign News.
Washington, Dec. 13.���The latost
advice from Pekin, from official
sources,, is that England has signified a willingness to sign the agreement reached by the foreign ministers
with n slight amendment, which is
said to be rather in the nature of a
mere change in form rather than an
amendment of the scope of the agreement at any material point. It was
tlie understanding that Great Britain
was the only power that was holding
buck nnd us. according to the advices
received here,the Slight changes made
or proposed to be made by Great
Britain do not conflict witli any of
the principles held out for by the
United States Government from the
point of view of the State Department, there seems to be no substantial obstacle to an almost immediate
closure of the negotiations concerning the preliminary agreement.
TREATY AMENDED.
Washington, D. C, Deo. 13.���A
treaty has been concluded betweon
tbe United States nnd Great Britain
amendatory of the existing extradition treaty and intended to correct
certain imperfections in thnt instrument developed by relent experience.
Tbe ehunges do not materially affect
the scope or principles of the existing
trenty, the chief item In the list being a provision classifying as a crime
subject to extradition the obtaining
of money under false pretenses. At
present the treaty make extradition-
able the reception of money obtained
under false pretences and us the omission of the principal in the crime constitutes a manifest absurdity the
amendment is made.
INCITING   RIOT.

Hong Kong, Dee. 13. ��� The city was
placarded today witll statements Inciting the people and tho members of

drive nut all of the foreigners.

hut no actual outbreak was reported.
ReportB have been received today
from Canton to the effect that Young
Sung l'u, the reformer, hud been hor-
lihly tortured, Though he was strung
up by the thumbs and the toes, he
would confess nothing.
TO HINT TREASURE.
Pekin, Dec. 13.���A few days ago
the British troops were notified of
the existence of a largo amount of
treasure twenty miles northwest of
here. Colonel Tullock and a hundred
men left today to investigate. Colonel
Tullock requested, however, that fifty
extra men be detailed. It is believed
that a large amount of gold nnd valuables were burled ut that point by
persons connected with the ChineBO
Court during thu recent flight. The
information regnrdiiig tho treasure
was received from a former Court official.
DON'T APPROVE BULOW.
Berlin, Dec. 13.���As the result of a
mass meeting at Hamburg the friends
of the Hoers nt that place have sent
the Imperial Chancellor, Count Von
Buluw, a strongly worded disavowal
of the Gorman Government's Transvaal policy.
CAN'T LIVE LONG.
The Pope's Life Even Now Hangs By
a Thread.
Rome, Dec. 13.���In spito of all denial, official and otherwise, it Is cer-
tin today thnt tho life of Leo XIII,
hangs literally by a single thread,
and that his death may be expected at
any moment.
Always fragile in appearance, he
has now becomu so emaciated that he
looks  a   mere   spectre.    He   can    no
longer walk unassisted,but spends the
greater part of hiB day lying on a
couch, and is unable to take or retain
any solid food. His regular hours of
meals have been abandoned, and ho
is now fed whenever hungry by
means of eggs beaten in old inursula,
biscuits dipped in old port wine, c o-
colnte benteu with eggs, which alone
seive to sustain his waning forces.
His medical attendants, Doctors La-
ponl and Mnzzoni.havc taken up their
residence at the Vatican, and take It
in turns to remain continually with
the aged Pontiff by night and day,
while his body servant, Centra, never
leaves his side, even tuking his meals
in the private apartments of the Police. His position is no sineenre,
for he is compelled to give to Leo
XIII. almost the same attention that
one would give a child.
Leo cannot bear tbe contact of wool,
of silk or of anything but the finest
lawn with bis emaciated body, and
owing to the danger of catching cold
when tbe luwn is dampened by perspiration, it is necessary that these
underclothes be changed several tlinas
a day.
Moreover, the Pope while an inveterate snuff taker, has u horror of he
slightest stain of Bnuff on his snow
white cassock and If he perceives a
single spot on tho white faoric at once
insists on donning a new cassock.
Centra is a tall, powerful man, clean
shaven like an ecclesiastical dignitary,
and invariably arrayed in full evening
dress with white tie. How constant
is his attention upon bis aged master
may be gathered 'rom the fact that
even during the private audiences
which the Holy Father still accords
ho remains in tbe room behind n,
screen.
People here are very superstitious,
and nre convinced thnt the Pontiff's
death is neur ut hand, owing to an
extraordinary visit which ho received
a few days ago. Tbo visitor wns no
other than Amlraes Lang, the'peasant
who plays the role of Christ in the
"Passion I.ay" atOborammcrgau.and
who presents the most extraordinary
resemblance to the best known Italian
paintings of the Saviour.
CREATES DISCUSSION.
Mr. Broderick's Remarks in the Houso
of Commons Yesterday.
London, Dec. 13.���The information
drawn from Mr. Broderlck in the
House of Commons yesterday that tho
powers of Lord Roberts as commnnder
iu chief would bo the same as those of
Lord Wolseley, calls out from The
Dally Mail a strong protest. Tho
Doily Mail contends that with Lord
Roberts as a lay figure able to be overruled by tlie Minister of War, real
army reforms are quite impossible.
Tho Daily Chronicle says: "Wo can
not but regret that Lord Roberta hag
not improved the shining moments of
his popularity to hunt the position of
commander-in-chief on a sounder basis
although we have no doubt that Lord
Roberts will be quite as good as
Lord Wolseley.

know that any one would expect it if
it wore possible; but it can be relieved of present disabilities and given a
fair chunce. A Federal Minister of
Mines would take pride in seeing thnt
this justice at least were accorded it.
The movement, if nothing else, is
evidence of the growing importance of
the mining industry. We had other
evidence of this a few days ago, when
a member of the Federal Cabinet, visiting the Kootenays, promised the
most comprehensive Government inquiry into all matters all'ecting the industry, with the view of promoting
its devlopment, With an eye to the
practical, tho Executive Committee of
the Associated Hoards of Trade have
seized on this, and are taking action
to keep the Minister to his promise
and to derive fiom the investigation
the greatest possible amount of benefit. With pressure from the Boundary
country to create u Mining Department, and with the energetic pursuit
of the visiting Min'ster by tbe Assented lloa.ds of T.ade, there is eveiy
piobability in .be near future of suob
Federal :ecugnil<on of the mining
iadustry as must result in substantial
and lasting advantage to it.

THE MAYORALTY.
The ralepayeis of the City will
be glad to know that Aid. Mclvillop
has consented to uccept a nomination
for tbo Mayoralty. That means his
election, nnd most probubly without
opposition; he is so strong in tbe public confidence that there is little likelihood of uny other candidate offering. M.\ Mclvillop has served h's apprenticeship in municipal work, and
the electors will only be too glad to
advance him to the head of the Council. It is no reflection on uny other
member of the Council of the past two
years to say that Mr. McKillop has
been most distinguished for his grasp
of municipal affairs, and for his fair-
neBs and firmness in deuling with
them. There is no man in the City
to whoso bunds these affairs can be
more safely entrusted. With Mr. McKillop in the Mayor's chair there is
no danger of jobs, either in bis own
interest or in that of friends or hang
ers-on. The ratepayers can count
with confidence on clean adininistra
tion, foi he will hnve no other. He
will have no bosses outside the Council or in it, but will see that the peo
pie's affairs are managed with a sin
gle eye to the interests of the people
themselves and with the unselfish de
votion and honesty due from a faith
ful public servant. As Mayor Mr.
McKillop will be no man's man, nor
no party's man, but will stand for tbe
whole people, alwayB resolved to do
the right.	
THE MINING  INDUSTRY.
Over at Grand Forks  a public meet
ing has demanded, by resolution, that
the Federal Government create a Min
ing Department   nnd   nppoint   u full
fledgd,   responsible   Minister   us   tin
bend of   it.    Of   course it is   treason
but we must express our doubt wheth
er this will be done.    No Government
at Ottuwu hns yet   manifested   an np
precintion of the mining   industry   of
the Dominion in   the   least nppronch
ing the measure it   deserves,    The interest and activity in   the Yukon   aie
due more to the necessity of providing
for the   government   of   that   region
With the exception of the Yukon,however, it iB well to remember   that   the
Federal authority is not bo iutiinatel\
associated   with   the  development   of
mining.    In    those   Provinces   which
huve control nf their own lands,nearly
all matters affecting the industry come
within tho jurisdiction   of   the   Prnv
inces themselves.  In British Columbia,
the most important of   these, wo have
a Minister of Mines, whose time   and
attention   are   devoted   to   the   well-
being  of   the   industry.     In Ontario
they huve not gone to the length of
Department, but a   Bureau   of   Mines
hns   been   established   in   connection
with another, to which has   beon   ns
signed   a chief whose  exclusive   duty
it is to watch over the interests   com
mitted to his   charge.    Mining, therefore, is regarded more as a Provincial
than a Federal iilFnir.
There is reason in the action of the
Grand Forks people neverthelen. If
mining is a local industry, subject to
locul regulation and control, we
know that it is also very closely and
materially affected by Federal policy
and legislation. The lead Industry is
Just now furnishing a somewhat
striking example of this. Mining.
however, Is not mure locnl thnn agriculture, and we have seen during the
past few yenrs what pains the Ottawa
Governments havo taken to promote
the latter, and what splendid results
have been achieved. Perhnps there
can be no such speclnl coddling of
the mining  industry, ond we  do not I
C't'zcns wil be consulting the best
interests of tbe municipality, which
u 'e tbe:.- own interests, if they give
early and serious attention to the
compos:.ion of the next Council. The
time has about come when tbe names
of candidates should be known if the
electors are to enjoy a proper deliberation in their choice. It was announced a fow ciuys ago that a movement
was on foot to nominate a Citizens'
ticket. Nothing could be better than
a Citizens' ticket, if selected by citizens who possess the public respect
und confidence. But tbe ticket of a
faction, put forward by a fow scheming municipal politicians, will not be
recognised as a Citizens' ticket in the
sense that will commend it to popular favor. In naming candidates it
will be advisable to select only such
men as have no axes of their own to
grind, and whose positions render
them independent of class influences
of any kind. It has been suggested to
The Miner that in (he pnst there have
been members of the Council who cater to the I'nions and bid for their
patronage. The members of Unions
have the same right to a voice in the
government of the municipality as
other citizens, but they have no right
to hold the threat of a boycott over
the bend of un Alderman, and no Alderman iB a free member of the Council
who can be inliucnccd by such a
threat. A man who is not superior
to'all such inlluenccs in not a safe one
to select aa a candidate. We want a
Mayor and Council who will have tbe
courage and boneBty to devote themselves to the public interest alone, re-
gardlesB of cliques or clusseB. There
is abundance of material for these,
and care should be taken to confine
the selection to it.

ARTIFICIAL ALIZARIN.
Its DUoovery Killed Ihe Great Mad.
der lltoiiiim Industry.
' A striking exnmple of how an Industry
may be revolutionized by un apparently
Insignificant discovery Is shown In the
history of dyeing.
Before 1800 madder was used for the
source of a valuable dyeing material
which Its roots contuined, called alizarin.
By vorylug the treatment several colors
and shades can bo produced. Some of
these are among the fastest and most
brilliant dyes known.
In 1808 over 70,000 tons of madder
were grown. In 1800 two German chemists, Graebe and Licbcrmann, were making scientific inquiries regarding its composition. They found that by heating alizarin with zinc dust a body was obtnincd
which, after much trouble, was found to
be identical with unthrn.one. Anthracene
Is a well known body obtained in the distillation of cool tar. It occurred to the
soli'iitists, "Can alizarin be obtained from
anthracene?" After months of strenuous
Inleor they managed to effect this, hut the
process discovered by them was Impracticable on a commercial scale. At this
point nn English chemist named Perkins
devised a process which could be worked
on a lnrge scale, nnd In a few months artificial alizarin, which so lately had beer
looked upou as a chemical curiosity, was
being produced by the ton, and its price
rose from a few shillings a ton to over
200 times its former value.
At first, owing to the difficulties In Its
mnuiifacture, the artificial alizarin little
more thau held Its own with the natural
product, but successive Improvements
gruilunlly cheapened It till the price of
madder fell from $230 to $90 a ton, and
ultimately tbe artificial product drove It
from the market.
It was found that one pound of dry alizarin was equal In dyeing power to 00
pounds of madder. Now the great madder growing industry is practically extinct. Alizarin wns the first vegetable
dye which was mado artificially.���New

COMMITTING SUICIDE.
How Different Nationalities Seem !���
Adopt Different Methods.
"It Is very strange how different nationalities seem to run to special modes
of committing suicide," remarked a physician of this city who tnkes an interest
In the bizurro side of human nature. "I
see by the papers that an old German
cut his throat here tho other day. That ia
a favorite method of self destruction
among middle class Germans of a suicidal temperament. Just why it should
be so Is hard to conjecture. It is unutterably horrible and a wholly unnecessary
nifiiction of pain, yet anybody who has
given the subject attention can rccull
dozens of cases���all Germans.
"Americans generally shoot themselves.
Thnt method. It seems to mo, ean bo
traced to eertnin national characteristics.
When a typical American decides upon
doing anything, ho wants to do it the
quickest, surest and easiest way, and
there Ir nothing that fills the bill in all
thoso particulars as well as a bullet.
Drowning Is a way of getting out of the
world that Ib more likoly to be followed
by a Frenchman than ono of any other
nationality. There, ngain, Is a chance
for the theorist The _'reach arc an aesthetic, romance loving people, nnd a
plunge Into the river is a vastly more poetic style of making an exit thnn at the
end of a ropt or by the mutilating impact of a lump of lead. The despairing
heroes and heroines of French novels generally take the water route to eternity,
and the Influence of fiction on everyday
life Is a good deol stronger than matter of
fact people would care to admit
"Ab far as hanging is concerned 1
don't know. I hnve memoranda of T6
suicides by hanging, covering a period of
about five years, and the folk who predominate are Norwegians. The nationalities are so varied, however, that It would
be foolish to attempt to lay down a rule.
Your English suicide is a most versatile
Individual. He plays no favorites. With
him all roads lead to Lethe."���New Orleans Times-Democrat
Dim Minn in.
Speaking of "doubling things" reminds
me of a story I once heard of a little girl
whose name was Suzle. This particular
Suzle had a habit of saying "good,
good," and "w-o-o-d, wood," and she used
to look bo funny when she spelled words
In that fashion that, like Mary's little
lamb, she always caused a commotion in
the schoolroom.
So ono day tho teacher Bald: "Suzle,
dour, you mustn't say g-o-o-d; soy g-dou-
Uc-o-d.   'Try and remember, my child."
Just then they came to the old familiar
Phrano In the regulation first reader: "Up,
up, Jane! The sun is risen!" It was little 8uzl��'s turn. Looking up with a cute
smile to catch tho look of sympathy and
approval she felt sure Bhe merited for re-
-lMiilneiing the rule of "doubling things,"
said ��hc, without even a sign of hesitation: "Double up, Juuel The sun has
risen I"���Loudon Answers.

A NEW MOVEMENT.
CHAMBER   OF MINES.
Provisional President Mr. .1. I!. MeArthur on a Short Visit to the City.
Mr. J. H. MeArthur, provisional
president of the Chamber of Mines,
came over from Rossland this morning
and returns this evening. In conversation with The Miner, Mr. MeArthur said that evidences of the great
success of the organization were
reaohing him every day. Applications for membership were being received from all quarters of the Continent where prominent men interested
in mining in this country, had been
invited to join. The different districts of the country will be thoroughly canavssed at once and about
the 10th of next month a general
meeting of members and subscribers
will bo held to organize perman
ently.
There have been over two hundred
applications for the position of Secre
tary of the Chamber. The provisional
committee has left the appointment to
the permanent committee that will
be elected at the meeting to be
held next month. These applications
been received from'all parts of Canada
and the western States.
The K. N. St   R.   Co.   will   Establish
Several Freight and Ticket Otllccs
Along the Lake.
Tho Kootenay Navigation and Railroad Company is now making a move
by which it will be better able to secure not only the loeal freight and
passenger traffic of Nelson and Kaslo
but also that from every point
throughout the lake district. A Boating wharf on which is erected a, building for the express use of a ticket,
baggage and freight office, has been
placed at the end of the City wharf.
Mr. James Waugh of Kaslo, who is
connected with this company is the
City today making arrangmeiits to
furnish the oflice and when this is
completed a man will be placed in
oharge, This arrangement,they think,
will meet the demands upon the company. Hitherto there was no place
to leave freight and baggage, and it
was always necessary to await the
arrival of the boat before transporting the artic.es. Baggage cun now be
taken to tlie oflice at any time. Such
an office is to be placed at nearly
every point along the lake, and by
doing this they think that they will
then be on an even basis with competing companies.

Ladies ot Canada:
"Should auld acquaintance be forgot'.*" The answer comes mechanically
from every Britisher. Nor should
new acquaintance he forgot. Remember that on the bloody fields of South
Africa your brave soldier boys were
on the Bring line, Hanked by loyal
liritisli subjects fiom Ceylon and India. In the mist of anger, lasting
friendships were formed, and you,
ladies of Canada, have it in your power to cement those bonds. The Green
teas of Ceylon and India appeal to you
from sentiment, By using them you
net only aid your brother colonists,
hut you get absolutely the best tea.
Those of you who drink Green Japan
teas have a revelation in store if you
make (lie change. Blue Ribbon, Saluda and Monsoon pask'ets may be bad

brated Oerman Physician, and is ack
nowledged to be one of the most fortunate   discoveries    in    Medicine.    It
quickly cures Coughs, Colds and Lung
troubles of the severest nature, reniov
ing, as it does, the eause of the affee
ton and leaving the parts in a   strong
and healthy condition,  It   is   not   an
experimental medicine, but   has stood
the test ot years,   giving  satisfaction
in every case,   which   its   rapidly increasing sale every   season   confirms.
Two   million   bottles   sold   annually.

and is now sold   in   every   town   and
