Nelson, British Columbia, Monday, January 2,   1899.
Ninth Year
The Past Tear and its Object Lesson.
Year Was Marked bj American AdvanoeB
and Greater Kespeot far
London, Deo. 81.���The Speotator
this week, epitomises the reviows of
the passing year, which fill all today's newspapers declaring that:
"The dominant fact of 1898 has been
the rise in the position of the English
speakiug peoples."
It desorihes how Europe 1ms been
amazed and irritated by the expansion
of American, though Europe bus not
dared to interfere. But the Speotator
says that the powers are apprehensive
that the change may compel a defensive coalition of the military powers
of Europe. It ulso quotes one periodical as saying that the European contempt for Great Britain has been succeeded by respect, compelled by the
stiffening foreign policy of the English speaking racos, which, "Disregarded in 189i, are in 1898, regarded
at the potential equals of the remainder of the world." The Spectator
concludes: "The English speaking
people may govern half the world
without graeiousness or system, but if
they are to govern its justice, without
consideration of right for others, their
del;'.iiiiit<: ir will bc-ic | vlVile day
come crashing down."
The word "American" might well
be written at the head of all those annual reviews, as the text is so overshadowing in the attention which
they devote to the Republic's affairs.
This new found interest contrasts
sharply with the samo writers' references to the Hnitod States in rooent
years, whon they found little worthy
of comment, save the lynohings and
corruptions in different cities. The
friendliness of all the articles is nnns-
ally conspicuous, as though its universal sincerity is not credited by Americans acquainted with tho inner working of the British foreign policy
and who know that several of the papers acquired this gnod will only
whon the British Government, during
the recent war with Spain, hinted to
them that it was a most important opportunity to cnltivato tho friendship
of the United States and that itsnould
be improved.
The prospectus with which the
American anti-Ipmerialist league supplied all the newspapers here this
week, apparently hoping to enlist British support of their plans, was at
first treated respectfully, but coldly,
while tho pross unanimously urges
the United States to suppress the Fill
pinos summarly if they are troublesome.
Gon. Otis'   Proclamation    Will    Not
'   Be Made Public at, Once.
Washington, Dec. ill.��� Upon full
consideration the authorities hero have
decided to adhere to their original
intention and withhold from publics-
tiou tho proclamation to 1 e addressed
to the Filipinos by General Otis, tho
military commander of the islands,
until the document has boo i given
publicity at Manila. Tho proclamation
is very long, going in great detail
into conditions in tho islands and outlining, as far as possible at this time,
the intentions of the administrations
at Washington towards the peonle of
the Archipelago, the key nolo being a
strong intimation that the whole future happiness and welfare of tho islands depends on their conduct now.
New Yoar the Spaniards Still  Departing.
Havana, Deo. ill.-Tho city is quiet.
The Spanish auxiliary cruiser Kapido
and the Spanish torpedo boats Mar
quese Ensadn, Galcia, Marquese Melius, and Diego Volasque sailed today

Admiral Mauterola, the Spanish naval
commaudor, and the Patriot, another
Siiauisb auxilliary cruiser, takes the
Spanish naval officials. The arsenal
hero was occupied by Americans today. Mono Castle and Oulmuas were
ocoupied last night.
Organ of   Conservative   Party in Germany Surprisis its Headers.
Berlin, Deo. 81. ���A signifiomt fact
this week, wns the conversion of the
Kreuz Zoituug to pro-American views
which is understood to havo been duo
to the direct interference of the Government. The Kieuz Zoitung, which
as the leading organ of the Conservative party and exerting a vast influence in court, official and army circles
has tended all along to maintain the
spirit of unfriendliness towards the
United States, 1ms now suddenly,
without giving any reason for its opinion, become a powerful advocate of
better and more Intimate politioal and
commercial relations between the two
countries. Speaking of the commercial negotiations between Germany
and the United States the Krouz Zeit-
ung predicts that a way bo found to
reoouoile the interests of both countries in a reciprocal treaty.
A Spanish   Minister Speaks of an Alleged Danger to Spain.
London, Dec. 81.���A despatch to tho
Standard from Madrid says that
much Comment has been caused in political add diplomatic circles tiy an
interview printed in the Liberal with
an unnamed Minister. This Minister declares that, above all problems of
interior politics, there is a question of
extraordinary gravity effecting tho
verv existence of Spain which praoo-
oupies so deeply all Spanish statesmon
that it should suffice to unite them in
order to avert a castropbe.
He adds oracularly: "It is impossible to speak more clearly. I will only
say that the preoccupation includes
fears of apprehended events that
might, some day, give a pretext for
the thing England is pursuing with
offron tery.''
Hong Kong, Dec. 81.���The two
missing boats of the wrecked British
steamer Glenavon have been found.
The only missing persons now are
Chief Mate Nixon, Second Steward
Wilson and two Chinese. Quarter Master Smith died of exposure after swimming to Ling Ting Island,
This Notwithstanding the Fact That He
Possessed   Nonoy  and
Buffalo. N. Y., Pec. 81.���Judge
Emery, County Court, granted an order this afternoon releasing Edward
Norman from the penitentiary, where
he was sent on Decembo.- 22, to serve
00 clays on the charge of being a
tramp. The petition for his release
was made by Attorney John L. Cronin
who asserted that tho arrest was unjustifiable and his conviction a gross
miscarriage of justice. Norman's home
is at 219 I)ufre8ne street, Montreal.
He is 37 years old, and he has a wife
and five children. His wife is lying
at the point of death According to the
petition presented by Attornoy Cronin, Norman came from Montreal, intending to go to Albany to accept a
position as telegraph operator with the
Western Union Co. He went to tne
house of Mrs. Jacobs, at 44 South Division street, for a fow days. Mr.
Cronin informed Judge Emery that
while there Mrs. Jacobs gave him $45
to speculate for her in wheat, that be
took the money, but the market went
tho wrong way and the money went
to the pockcrts of the brokers. Ho
said Mrs. Jacobs then had him arrested on I bo charge of petty larceny.
When he was arraigned in the police
court the following day, Mrs. Jacobs
ilid not appear against him ami then
the police jbarged him with ueing a
tramp and not having any visible
means of support. Norman ho said,
at the time, ban monny m his pocket,
had recommendations from high officials of the Great North Western Telegraph Co. of Canada, and a number of
other valuables. He says that the recommendations anil the money have not
yet boon returned to him.
Anyhow, Judge King committed
him to the penitentiary for tho term
of tit) days on the testimony given by
the police officials. Mr.Cronin produced
an affidavit signed by S. 0. Rice,
chief operator of the Western Union
Company, at Albany, saying Norman
worked under h m all last summer
and that lie was a man of good charter, and splendid operator. After
reading the affidavits, Judge Emery
said he would grant an appeal to the
case and would release Norman in $1(10
bail. Tho papers were served on
Keeper Sloan this afternoon and he ro
leased the prisoner. Norman says be
is going to Montreal to see his wife
iiinl children and will return to prose-
euio the people responsible for his arrest unci incarceration.

last night in Hudson Hail at Eighth
Avenue and Thirty-Seventh Stroet,
with some men who are not Irishmen,
and organized the United States Independent League, the object of which is

United States and England. The
meeting was in response to a call is-
snod by a committee of Irishmen,
which was formed for tho purpose a
week ago. P. J. Boylan was elected
temporary chairman of the meeting
last night, at which little was done except to make permanent the organization. Judae Van Hoesan was elected President of the now organization.

Emperor William and Prince
Hohenlohe at Outs.
Expulsion of Danes and Austrians From
Germany  One of the Causes
of Dispute.
Berlin, Dec. 31.���From an inside
source it is learned that another
Cabinet orisis here is approaching.
For some time past there have been
serious differences of opinion between
Emperor William and Chancellor Hohenlohe. In two instances, the question
of tho highest military court and the
Lippe-Detmold succession i ase, His
Majesty yielded to some extent. This,
however, was done more because of the
Emperor's affection for the aged
Chancellor whom he calls "Uncle" in
private conversation, and addresses by
the affectionate '"du" (thou,) than
because Prince Hohenlohe's views
convinced him. In several othor
equally important matters, the
Prince's views and intontions have
been over-ridden by the Emperor and
part of his cabinet, more espeioally by
Dr. Miguel, the Vice President of the
Council of Ministers aud Minister of
Finance, the anti-strike bill, the refusal of sanction the bill to extend the
right of public association and expulsions of Danes and Austrians from
Germany, being instances of this.
The consequences of these ceaseless
expulsions, and winch were still oo.i-
inuod, have greatly embarrassed the
chancellor, especially in the case of
German relations with Austrians and
induced him to address the Emperor a
long autograph letter this week setting
forth in detail the reasons why he
disapproves of expulsions. If tho home
and foreign policy he has hitherto followed in his agreement with Emperor
William is to be pursued, it will be
necessary to discontinue the expulsions. There is a powerful clique working insiduously with the aim of rendering the situation more acute and
forcing Prince Hohenlohe's retirement, when they believe an out and
out retiouary cabinet will he formed
with the reappearance of Baroii Von
Zedlitz in a high position, after a disappearance from public life during
seven years past, and at ihe direct
command of His Majesty.
It is adduced" in support of this he
lief that Government circles will give
as aii explanation of the !. iperor's
concurrence in Baron YnijKollors
wholesale expulsions in Noi i Schles-
weig, that the political BitVa'ion there
has beon for some time much worse
than is publicly known v 1 that the
net work of pro-Danish conspiracy
had to he forcibly up-rootod in order
to guarantee the security of the country, and it is further asserted that the
Prussian government, in reply to an
interpellation early in the session of
the PrUSSl U diet, will ndTRDOS evidence of this conspiracy. But, in
spite of this, all private reports, newspaper reports aud individual reports
agree in pointing out that the situation prior to the expulsions was harm

nerlin, Doo. 81.���Tho Hamburg
Chamber of Commerce in its annual
report, expresses the hope that Cuba,
Porto Rico and tho Philippine Islands
will bo opened to the commerce of the
world on equal conditions like German aud Brirish colonies. In viow
of the report from Porto Rico to the
effect that a number of plantations
have been destroyed since tho Spaniards retired, tho Chamber of Commerce requested the Imperial Government to ask tho Government at Washington to take steps to afford efficient
protection to German property which
is considerable there.

followed     by   a   flash   of   (Ire   which
I reached    hundreds of   feet   high   and
lighted the entire   country   for   miles
around, a 12   inch   line   leading   from

San Francisco, D^c. 81.���Mrs. Cordelia Botkin, convicted of the murder
of Mrs. John D. Dunning and her sister Mrs. Dean of Dover Dcleware, is
an inmate of tho Branch Count Jail.
She becamo hysterical shortly after her
arrival there last night and was calmed with difficult. But she recovered
her usual sang froid today and has
taken hope from tho promises of her
attorneys who have stated that tl.ey

The next move in the case will probably be an appeal to tho supreme court
as it is certain that Judge Carroll
Cook will deny the petition for a new
trial thus casting the case into the
higher court for settlement.

Just   Keturni-d   From    England-���
Talks of Politics and
Colonel .James Baker, ox-Mmister 01
Minos, arrived in the' cily on Saturday evening on his way from England
to Victoria to attend the opening
of tho Provincial Legislature, Ho
stopped off at. Cranbrook for three
days to visit his son, who bus been
ill with typhoid fever for about three
months, bur is now convalescent.
When questioned as to the feeling in
London with regard to this Province,
the Colonel said that ho bad met many
people interested in the country, and
that ho understood that several new
mining companies were about to conn
out, but that the long expected British
Columbia mining boom on the London
money market seemed its far off as
ever. Ho had left London before the
Le Roi company was Boated and knew
nothing beyond the cabled reports regarding its flotation.
Colonel Baker said he bad been ab
sent in England about four months,
and so had not been able to keep in
closo touch with Provincial Politics
but so far as be could gather from the
sources of Information at his command, he thought rhoro was no chance
of the government controlling more
than half the seats in the bouse. He
also (bought that the government
would bo very unwilling lo risk another general t-lcction at this junctur",
which would, moreover, be a groat expense to the Province, Thus, taking
everything into consideration, be
thought a coalition government the
most probable outcome of the. ensuing
Tho lead smelting question was one
which greatly interested the Colonel
He saw no reason why our neighbors
should reap practically idl the profits
from this important and growing in-
dnstrv. Pig lead was 111 demand In
Great Britain, and a market could
bo obtained there for British Columbia lead, and the industry once started, factories of load products would
soon follow.
"Pig lead" said Colonel Baker, "is
now worth ifHO u ton in England. It
can be produced here at a total cost ol
$15 p��r ton, which would leave a large
margin of profit, even after paying
the cost of transportation. " Col. Baker seemed confident that an Industry
properly started on these lines would
be assured   of   success.
Asked if he saw 11111,'b change in
Cranbrook since ho left, the colonel
replied that it bad grown almost out of
all recognition. He calculated that
there were over 11)0 people on the platform when the train came in. and he
was informed that the crowd was no
bigger than tisnrl. The O. P. R was
���pending large sums of money on the
erection of buildings, sidings and other
accommodations necessary for an important divisional point, hotels and
buildings were springing  up,   and it
was very hard for travelers to se.
cure beds, notwithstanding ;],0 extensive hotel accommodations.

yesterday evening's train, and hopes
to moid, the Hon. J. II. Tinner at Vancouver, when the two will proceed to

Local Government Act Goes
Into Effect.
Landlord and Laboring Glasses Will Predominate the Politioal
London. Dec. 31.���The New Year
brings Ireland tho greatest experiment
since Catholic emancipation, namely,
the initiation of the local government
act, which really, in many 0? its features, is an extension of ei incipation
acts and polioy, The fence, ...rough-
out Ireland are placarded with the address of membership of the district
councils which the act establishes, and
appeals from landlords and former
grand jnrys are posted beside those
of tenant farmers and laborers. While
siriet party Hues are not yet drawn,
there is a distifot line of cleavage, one
set in which tho landlord class predominates, hailing tho scheme as a
solution of the Irish problem and promising to legislate solely for the good of
the people.
The other set, chiefly (he laboring
class, promises to work in the new
positions along the old lines for the
realization of home rule.

Kelson and Rossland Teams Will Meet
in the  New Rink.
Those citizens who observe today
as a holiday will have an opportunity
10 see what promises to be a very ex-
citiug hockey match between the Nelson and Rossland hockey teams. The
game commences at 2:80 and will
take place in the commodious new
rink at Stanley stroet. Tho Nelson
team has labored under the disadvau-
inge of not having bad auy ice upon
which to praclico but the men are
111 good physical condition aud will
put up a game that, will keep tho Ross-
landers awake during the match. Thoy
are verv anxious to bring the championship to Nelson this year nnd they
intend to bring this desired end
about, by defeating Rossland from the
lirst. A good hockey team is a valuable advertisement for a town and
tne Nelson club has started in to make
its senior team the best in tho Koote-
uavs. For this reason, and because
the game itself is one of the liveliest
ami most scientific of sports, there
should be a largo atten lance at the
rink today to encourage the club.
The Nelson team will bo ohosen
from the following players: J. Thompson, W. Duncan, T. Duncan, C. Archibald, A. Pernei, G. Boll, Wetmore,
D. W. Rutherford, O. Cowan, J.
Blackwood and Geo, Nunn.
'the Rossland team arrived last night
aud have taken possessions of rooms
in tin l'buir Hotel. On Saturday night
tho team defeated the Victoria's of
Rossland after an exciting match by a
score of three to two.    The  following

Great Northern has adopted a now

easterly to Port Steele and branches to

There is an application for a lino to
pet into the mining region of Salnio
and Ynnr. Another is to start from
Speuce'a Bridge, through the Nioola
Valley, and on to the lake sourco of
Nioola River. A ootnpany are seeking
to build from Revelstoko north to the
iilith parellel, and the.nce to the Liard,
or westerly into the Atlin region. The
Teslin & Atlin Company aro seeking to build a line from Burrow's liay
Kheni Canal, to Teslin Lake. Tho
North Star and Arrow Lako Company
ask for additional power to build from
Fort Steele to Golden. Another pro-
jiot is to build from Fort Simpson to
Glenorn or Telegraph Creek. Amendment to an existing charter is asked
to permit, tho construction of lines
from Kitamaat Inlet to Coppor River,
east to Telegraph Trail, south and east
to Babiue Lako, thence north and east
to Germauseu Creek at Omenica
Here is grist enough for one session's
grinding, surely.
It is suggested that the recent announcement of Ministerial policy in
respect to the Dunsniuir franchise on
the Island was made for election
effect merely, the hope being that it
would influence the result in Albemi
and Cowichan. If this was the purpose Ministers will be disappointed,
as the Government come out of tho
little conteBt no stronger than they
were. The Opposition candidate in
Cowichan had a moderately easy task
to beat his opponent, while the Gov
eminent candidate in Albemi has to
content himself with a smaller majority than he obtained at the general
election. If tho purpose was more
serious than is now supposed, Ministers will do well to recousider it. Albemi and Cowichan are closely associated with the E. & N. Railway, and
if grievances and abuses existed such
as have boon alleged (hose constituencies would know of thoin and ba tho
first to feel them. As the announced
policy of bullying and confiscation received no support from the people who
of all others are tho most directly interested, it is fair 11 assume that
there is nothing to justify it.
If we refer to the two official Ga
zettes, the one published at Ottawa
and the one at Victoria, we shall find
fvidenco of one of the worst outbreaks
of railway chartering on record. Nothing w(i could say would be more olo-
quent of the fnot than a bare recital
of tho applications already advertised
for consideration at the next sessions
of tho British Dolnmbia Legislature
and the Dominion Parliament, And it
is only necessary that wo confine tho
list to enterprises promotud iu tho extreme West.
Tho British Yukon Railway Company are asking authority to build
from Selkirk to Dawson City, and
thence westerly to the international
boundary line; also to build from Car-

An English Appeal Court, with the
Chief Justice presiding, has confirmed
the conviction of a man who was
charged with manslaughter, becauso
he did not have a doctor to his child
who died of an infantile disease. The
man was a member of a sect known as
"Peculiar People," who do not believe
in physicians. His perfect sincerity is
not questioned, and his natural affection is evidenced in the fact that he
did everything possible for his child
short of calling in a doctor. Perhaps
his conviction was necessary in the iu
terest of society, but in the face of it
what becomes of our boasted cry of re
ligions liberty? The man is not pun

Iu casting up the Dominion by-elections since 18'JO, tho Winnipeg Free
Press says that two Boats in Manitoba
have changed from Conservative to
Liberal, meaning, of course, from
Tapper to Lnurier, What two seats
are those? Mi. Macdouald, a Conservative, was eleoted for Winnipeg, and
on being unseated was succeeded by
tho present very worthy member, Mr.
Jameson, a Liberal. Which is the
other constituency? Does it mean
Brandon, which was carried by Mr.
Dalton McCarthy and ia now represented by Mr. Sifton? Mr. Sifton
was one of the strongest supporters
Mr. McCarthy had ; in fact, if it hod
not bein for Mr. Sifton Mr. McCarthy
could not have been elected. Is that
tho second gain? If so, Sir Wilfrid
Lanrier's present Minister of The Interior was guilty of supporting a Tory
candidate in 1896, If not so, the Free

M. Paul Oalnbou, who has now settled down in the French Embassy, is
credited with the intention of actively
renewing the negotiations with Lord
Salisbury concerning the 10 yptiau
question. France has no allies, no
lighting force, military or naval, on
which she can depend, Her internal
affairs are hopelessly involved. There
are minora of a coining revolution.
The date of the opening of tho Paris

Arguments Raised by Counsel at the Trial.
Johnson   Thinks   He   Has Been  Badly
Used and States HiB tteasons
In consequence of having opened up
his new saloon on the strength of the
License Oomniissioners having trans-
fered to him Mrs. Mallette's license,
Abe Johnson was fined 175 and costs
on Saturday night after a hearing
which lasted practically from 4 p. in.
until midnight. Mr. Johnson was he-
iug prosecuted by the city for having
sold liquor oontrary to the by-laws of
the City of Nelson, No's. 8 aud 12,
whioh regulate the conditions under
which liquor may be sold.
To prove the case for the prosecution
Mr. S. S. Taylor, who hold the brief
for the city, called Chief of Police
McKiunou to prove the sale of liquor.
He then called Mr. T. M Ward, collector of licenses, to provo that no li
cense had been issued to Mr. Johnson.
This closod the case for the city.
Mr. W A. Galliher. who represented the defendant, then moved to dismiss the case because the by-laws
which were alleged to have been infringed had not been proved, but was
interrupted by Mr. Taylor who asked
permission to be allowed to reopen
his case in order to prove the bv-laws.
Mr. Ualliger objected strenuously
to this, but Police Magistrate Crease
admitted the evidence subject to tho
objections   raised   by the   counsel
the defense,
Mr. Taylor then put In the original
by-law, which be proved by the City
Clerk, and the ease for the city was
again closod.
Counsel for the do feuso then objected
that the by-laws were not sufficiently
proved, as it was necessary, iu order
to prove them, eitlior to produce a copy
of the official gazette containing the
publication of the bylaws, or else to
put in certified copies of the bylaw
which were freo   from   intelineations.
Mr. Crease noted the objections
made, and then called upon Mr. (ialli-
hor to proceed with tho defense.
The defense proved by Messrs.
Straohan and Johnson that Mrs. Mallet to had requested the Hoard of License Commissioners in writing to
transfer her saloon license to Abe
Johnson, and that, the latter had applied to the Hoard for a transfer of
the said license which was granted
by the Hoard on December 14, 1HIIK.
Tho minute book was produced ihtiw-
ing the entry of tho grant to J( liiison.
It was also proved that Mrs. Mni-
lutto's license was, aud is, valid and
The prosecution, in rebuttal, produced the minntea of a mooting of the
License Commissioners held on Do-
cembor '11, 1KDH, which contained a
resolution purporting to cancel the resolution which was passed at tho meeting of tho Hoard held on the l-lth of
December granting the transfer of the
license to Johnson. It appni red from
the evidence that Mr. W. A. Macdon-
ald, y. C, who, was one of the com-
wis-donors who favored the granting
of the license at the meeting of the
14th, had without unv apparent,
CBBM been removed from office, and
that Mr John A. Turner had been
substituted for him. This change was
niadu on December 99, if also appear-
ed iu evidence that the meeting of the
27tli was hurrioly called by Mayor
Houston, aud that lie and Mr. Turner
had undertaken al, this special meeting
to annul the resolutions passed al the
previous regular Hitting of I ho Hoard,
Mi. Crease, the other commissioner,
declining to take auy purl in the proceedings. It also appeared that this
resolution was moved by Mr. Turner,
the new appointee, and seconded by
Mayor Houston.
Mr. Uiillihor objected that the regular sitting of the Hoar I having boon
adjourned to a day fixed, 1. e. January 14, Hi'.i'.i, that tho resolution passed
by Messrs Turner and Houston at the
special meeting on December il, was
illegal, null aud void, and that consequently the defendant was still in
the same postion as lie was at the close
of the meeting of December 14.
The prosecution contended that no
transfer of the saloon license had boon
completed, aud that consequently the
defendant was acting in contravention
of the by-laws regululiiig tho sale of liquors in Nelson. Against this tho defense urged that the transfer of tho license from Mrs. Mallottu to Abo
Johnson was completed by tho act of
tint Licensing Comniissiouois, aud
that, consequently, the defendant had
acted within his rights, Iho transfer
being complete even if lie had no paper license; for the fact thai Mayor
Houston wlio was also chairman of the
Licensing committee, refused to sign
tlio document in the defendant's fn-
Aor, did not affect the lights granted
him by tho Hoard, as Mr. Houston s
signature was not a vital and necessary
ingredient in the transfer. Alter
hearing the arguments. Police Mngis-
truto 10. A. Crease who was also one
ot tho commissioners who grunted the
transfer,   hold   that   the   transfer was
not complete, and that consequently
the defendant had infringed tlm liquet
by-law, wherefore be ffiied bim J7B
mid costs. A very remiiikablo font
uro of the case, which was brought
out iu the ovidenodo, was the fact
Dint through tho special meeting
above referred lo was held, and though
tho resolution which rescinded the
resolutiou passed   at th* former  ordi
nary meeting was then passed, neither
the Mayor nor any of the License
Commissioners informed Johnson of
what had transpired, but deliberately
permitted him to go on and open up
under the belief that nothing further
had been done to alter liis position
from what it was when the License
Commissioners granted him the transfer of Mrs. Mallette's license on December 14.
Mr. Johnson was interviewed yesterday by a Miner reporter. Through
naturally charginod at the result of
the trial on Saturday, he was quite
confident of winning the case on appeal.
" I was very much surprised" said
Mr. Johnson, "when tin minutes of
the special meeting of the Board
were read lust Saturday. I bad no
idea that any such action bad been
taken, and neither had inv solicitors
I opened up my saloon fully believiup
that the action of the Commissioners
entitled me to d-i so. and, though 1
have no fenr of the ultimate result,
such underhand action seems to me to
ha>-o been promoted by personal ani
"The magnitude of the fine also
came as a surprise to me," he continued. "Mr. Crease, when he voted in
favor of the transfer of the license to
me, seemed quite sure that tho wishes
of tho majority of the Board could
not legally he overridden by the single
voice of tho Mayor, as did also Mr.
Maodonald, I opened my saloon without any attempt at concealment under legal advice, and Mr. Crease, at
one time at any rate, shared the
opinion of my solicitors, thus there
was no leason for an exemplary fine,
as Mr. Crease could not help knowing
that I acted bona fide in tlie belief
that I was complying with the law.
If, on after consideration, he thought
that I was technically wrong, a nominal fine would have answered all purposes.
"I cannot understand tho action of
the Mayor either. When I first made
my application for the transfer and
paid the necessary fee, Mayor Houston
assuredjtne that I was legally entitled
to the transfer, aud that I should have
his support in the matter. He also
told me to go ahead and open up the
saloon, and that, when I was ready,
he would give me a permit until
such time as the License Commissioners mot.
"On the strength of that assurance T.
engaged premises and bought an extensive stock, and it wns not until tho
appearance of another candidate in
tho field, that the Mayor, for reasons
host known to himself, went back on
his promise to me.
"The affair is not over yet, however. I shall appeal at once, and I
have no doubt that I shall obtain my
the present administration. George
Neobinds last week announced his
candidacy for the mayoralty and to
his credit, it may bo said, since doing
so he lias lost no time in getting to
work . He has been fortunate in
finding many enthusiastic supporters
who have already commenced his campaign in a quiet way. There are several aldermanic vacancies on tho opposition ticket , however, and unless
the men are found at a very early date
to fill theso satisfactorily thero will be
little chance of success for those who
wish to defeat Mayor Houston's administration. Two or three names
have already been mentioned but it
has been found that those who were
spokon of cannot qualify. There are
others, however, and it is understood
that some of them will be approached
today or tomorrow. Apathy is a very
bad thing during election times.

at first but do not be forgetful.
A crying baby is said always to
grow into a good, liouest aud prosperous mau. The year of 1899 spent its
first day in waitings; it should be a
piosperous year.
Mr. aud Mrs. W. F. Brougham gave
a dance on New Year's Kve to a large
number of their friends, which passed
off very pleasantly. Mr. and MissHed-
ley alio gave a dinner party.
The. following registered at the
Phair hotel yesterday : M. H. Cowan,
Duck Creek; W. J Dickson, Kaslo;
Ii. Colpitis, Spokane; J. W. Spring,
RoBsluud ; J. K. Mittchell,   Wiunepeg.
Today is a legal holiday and will
be observed as such by most business
houses Tho banks will be closed.
The only holiday attraction will be

The Ross-Haley boxing match which
was scheduled to come off in the Auditorium -if the Hume Hotel on Saturday evening did not materialize. The
principals were there, but so few
spectators arrived that tho exhibition
was postponed indefinitely.
The transfer of the business of the
county court registar for tho Kaslo
district from Nelson to Kaslo will tako
place on the Hith ot January next
when Mr. John Keen will bo installed.
The time of the first session will depend on the number of cases to be
tried, and the judge's press of business.
The long looked for voter's list
has at last been made public, Friday
evening printed copies of it wore delivered to the City Clerk and on Saturday anyone could find whether or not
his name was on the list. He did
uot havo to take tho word of anyone
for it, but could see for himself for the
list was posted in the city clerk's
nllico, as it should have been since December 19 Inst.
All day Saturday thnro was a line
of visitors at the city hall and not a
few of them were very much surprised
and disappointed to find that they ha I
been overlooked when the list had
been compiled. Some men who have
lived in Nelson foi three or four years
and who have voted on (very issue
ever raised in the municipality found
that thoy had been forgotten. Some of
tin se same men claim thai there are
others on the list who have no right
whatever to be there, but uro thankful
that while those who are illegally on
cniinol be taken off, those who have
boon omniitted will he able to have
their names placed upon tho list before election day.
One week from next Thursday will
bo elect ion day and although slops
were taken over a week ago to bring
out   a   ticket   in  opposition to Mayor
Houston's administration, no names
have yet boon submitted lo the public.
Si,hi a prominent cil.iy.cu in conversation with The Miner yesterday, :
'Many of the Nelson properly owners ami ratepayers are tited of the
city lining entirely run by one man,
particularly whon the running lias
been conducted in such u hiilldo/.iug
manner of Whioh we have had almost
daily evidences.
"Surely the ft mo iu the history of
Nelson has ciimo when our citizens
can elect a thoroughly active and energetic council of business men who
will jealously guard and foster her
Interests with the object of building
her up into one of the  greatest   towns
on iho Paoiiio slope. The outgoing council although composed
of good men in some WBVIi are unfor-
tutialely completely under the thumb
of tho inayor anil his rule has boon as
a rod of iron. What the electors
should aim at is to elect a council composed of men who have minus of then-
own i nd who can from an opinion as
to tho belt time of action to follow out
and have tho Strength of character to
purine it without fear or favor. While
there may bo nion on the piescnt conn-
oil who havo slrived lo make a stand
against some of tho mayor's iirliititiry
actions yet. unfurlunntcly through waul
uf support they have failed to carry
their points."
p This is tlie sentiment expressed by
one Citizen but it will be heartily con-
eurrod in by hundreds of Oth -rs. Those
who havo interested themselves iu
bringing out the Candidate! have nl
lowed the tune lo slip away while
their opponents have taken advantage
of this apathy and have spent many
hours iu electiouering. Up to date
their is but one candidate opposed   to
Sunn people think flint, a Hardware
Store is a poor place to look formal able
Disabuse your mind of that idea,   We
have a line of goods amongst   which
will be found the most  useful and   np-
iii-opi'iiite articles for presentation purposes. Their value is not. Heeling
Every day the receiver of one of these

L,.. , ,, , ,  ,    ,     .   tumultuous celebration of the  imports' ant  event.    By   midnight   when   '9b
-V%'Vtt/**--%V '%/%^%/%^'%'^* passed   into   histroy,   the winds were
sweeping down the mountains and
playing iiid aud seek around Nelson
houses with that dreary dirge that
accompanies a winter storm. The
scurrying clouds entered into tho general jamboree of the elements by dropping snowtlukcus which immediately
became tho sport of the winds and
were sent to tap gently at window
panes, to push their way through
cracks and under doors, to rusli in
white irregular armies down the icy-
streets or to seek shelter behind a
protecting object where the wind let
llltbem He at rest. The moou rose
^ | when the new year was but a few
ji minutes old but was invisible to the
55 storm swept city. Daylight succeed
ed darkness but Boreas could not tire
and kept the elements at play. All day
through Iho blizzard waged with ever
M j increasing energy and away on iut.i tho
night the wind was stilt blowing with
a fierceness that showed no signs of
abatement. The thermometer kept up
tlie excitement by hovering around
tho 15 mark and making it decidedly
cold for those whose interests took
them out ot doors.
A Northwest bilzzard is not a regular feature of Nelson winters and the
proverbial "oldest inhabitant," win
knows everything and remembers the
most extraordinary things that the rest
of us forget, had some difficulty iu recollecting just when there was such
another storm. But he said it was
most unusual. The trains service
suffered by the war of tlie elements and
the O. P. R. train, due troin Rossland
at 10:110 p. in. was over two hours behind time. Drifts in the mountains today will probably interfere seriously
with railroad traffic.
