THE       INSINUATION       DENIED.
Rossland Football Men Disavow  Tbeir
Local Paper's Statement.
Tbe Rossland Miuer of Sunday contained an extremely biassed and not
altogether correct account of the football match last Saturday which terminated with the statement that tho
Kosslanders were dissatisfied with the
treatment thoy received bore, and insinuated tbat the Nelson mon had not
acted up to thoir promises aud wore
lacking in hospitality. Tbo article
oreatep a painful impression here for
the Rossland men accepted tbeir defeat
in a most sportsmanlike manner, and
tbo Nelson men were extremely sorry
that tbo majority of tbo team were
unable to stay and take in tbe entertainment which had been gotten up
111 their honor. The worst insinuation of all, however, was tbat the
Ltov. II. Irwin had beeu deliberately
fouled. Nelson men do not do that
sort of thing to anyone, least of all to
"Futhei Pat" who is as universally beloved hero as he is everywhere else.
(jTlio members of the Rossland Rugby
Won had of course nothing to do
\\ith tho article in question, and thev
100k immediate   stops   to disavow   it.

wbn was in town yesterday received
tbo following tclogiam from Mr. Ov-
Ingtoni "Emphatically deny lack
of hospitality on part of Nolson in
name ot Rossland Football team.
(Signed) "B.  OVINGTON."
Tbe incident may now bo considered
closed, and tbo Rossland footballers
may rest assured that no one here over
thought they wero guilty of tbo ungrateful aud unsportsmanlike utterances attributed to tbem by tho Rossland Miner.
HUME'S   POSITION
THE MINISTER OF MINES IS VERY
EETIOIENT*
His Views of thi Workings of the Eight
Hour Aot ���Oity Wharf Matter
to be Arranged*
Tho Hon. J. Fred Hume, Minister
of Miues, was yesterday interviewed
by a Minor reporter as to his position
on the Eight Hour question. Mr.
Hume accorded tho interview willingly   but.   proved extremely reticent.
"What is your own opinion ou tbo
eight hour question, Mr, Humo?" was
the lirst question; "You know the
delegates ou their return from Victoria, said you were opposed to it."
"I would prefer to say as little as
possible about tho matter," was" the
reply.
"What steps did the Government
lako to find out the feeling of tho
Kootenays iu tbo matter, und were
the members for East Kootenay consulted as well as tbe West Kootonay
members?"
"I don't caro to say anything about
it," said Mr. Humo. "Yon could lind
out from the members themselves."
Iu tbe course of conversation on the
question Mr. Humo said he did not
think any trouble would result from
tbo legislation. Ho also said that the
law onlv applied to men working for
wages, and that a man working bis
own prospect could work as many
hours as bo liked. Mr. Humo was
also asked how tho law would effect
men working at so much a foot, und
uot for a dailv wago.
"That is a purely   legal  question,'
said Mr  Humo,   "and ono for lawyers
to decide    It is my own opinion,how-
ovor, that they   would not bo  effected
by it-''
Mr. Humo also said that the question of tho City wharf was receiving
his attention, aud be hoped to got tho
mutter settled before bo left Nelson.
Tbo wharf did not' produce revenue,
und was only 11 bunion on tbo Provincial Government and bo thought it
would bo a good thing if tbo Oity
wore to take it over. Mr. Humo expects to remain iu tbo City ubout n
fortnight.

THE APRIL STATEMENT.
How tho City  Affairs Staud  For Last
Month.

tho City's finances to tho Finance
Committee of tho Citv Council. The
report showed that tho receipts for

tho electric light plant wero {1,188,17
aud tho expenditure in construction
aud maintenance {1,768.88.
Tho wator rate receipts amounted
ro {688.88, aud the expenditures on

The work on streets amounted to
fl,ill!).40, the Fire Department cost
���3784.24, while over $300 a piece was
paid out in salaries aud side walks.
The committee discussed an application for farther assistance from H. D.
Bock, cemetery care takor, at very
groat length, but came to no conclusion, though the opinion of the com
mittee seemed to be that he might do
work for the City in his sparo time
iu digging post holes, and thus eko
out his stipend. It appears there are
not many graves to dig, but the pres-
ouce of boulders in tbo ground makes
exoavation a tedious and expensive
work.

observor  and  writes  most   entertainingly of what he Bees. We  could  have
wished that he had said more of  Nelson, but no doubt he had in mind tbat
his readers would  be  more   interested
in learning of localities and conditions
of  which   there  was  less  general in-
formatiou.    Nelson has passed tbe  infant stage  and   naturally   tho   curiosity respectiug it is not   so  great.    Wo
reproduce a portion of bis   impressions
gathered here:   "Nelson has grown   to
be the commercial centre of the Kootenays.    It   has   had   a steady   upward
growth,  with  occasional   halts   only.
When I was there in   1893, its  future
was stilljproblematical.aud it was in a
rather rough  and raw condition.    The
Slogan   had just been  discovered, and
its effect   wf.s   hardly to   be   judged.
Kaslo seemed to be the   open   door   to
its riches, and Nolson was   not in  tbe
line of traval,   but  Nelson's prospects
wore only slightly affected by it.    Tbe
banks went  in  there.    It   became tho
paying-out and depository point for the
district.    Wholesale agencies went  in,
and now  some  of   Nelson's   branches
of Ooast and Eastern firms do the  big
end of the business.    The   opening up
of tho Crow's   Nest Pass line bas   increased   its   importance    still    more,
while Rossland and   Trail   have   contributed to its   prosperity,   instead of
lessening   its   influence.    Nelson's future as   the   commercial   capital  and
centre of the Kootenays may be said to
be assured  beyond   all   peradveuturo,
It still bas its problems   in the way of
street-making,   street cleaning, waterworks, and lighting and sewerage, but
these will gradually  right   themselves
in time.    The aldermen seem to   bo  a
very intelligent body of men, seriously-
undertaking the task  set bofore tbem,
which is   not   an easy one.    Nelson is
not an  easy  town   in which to  build
streets and lay water and sewer pipes.
The streets   are   rather   crooked,   by
reason of the configuration   of the city
itself, and for  residence  purposes  are
not well suited   to   give  easy   access.
The town is growing   towards   Bogus-
town and along the lake front. "
The compliment to our aldermen is
deserved. Tbey are a human lot, and
at times may be tempted by personal
interest to be careless of their municipal responsibility ; but on the whole
they are honest and capable and
are giving the City as careful
and eoouomical administratiou as could
reasonably be expected of any body of
men. The writer correctly appreciates the difficulties in tho way of civic
improvements. Mountains of rock do
not offer the best conditions for easy
or artistic street construction He
makes n ourious mistake, however, in
speaking of our streets as crooked.
The roadway itself may deviate here
and there, owing to a too obtrusive
rock formation, but tbo street allowances aro as regular as tho most perfect
of surveyor's instiuments could make
tbem. Thero are not a few in the
City who believe that this was the oue
great mistake in laying out the town.
If tbe streets had been made to wind
according as the formation would
invite we would have a more picturesque City'and the streets, with their
aocompanimonts of water aud sewer
services, would be less difficult to construct. Instead of picking out easy
gradients, however, those responsible for the plan resolved to adopt the
usual checkerboard pattern, nnd our
streets were laid out due east and
west, aud north and south with tho
most perfect disregard of nny obstructions in the way. There is strong
reason to doubt whether tho judgment
under whioh this was done was the
best.
Speaking of Revelstoke's troublos
with their water and light ser'ioe, Mr.
Gosnell introduces Nolson by way of
comparison. His opinion expressed
will be of interest as tbat of ao intelligent person who can scarcely bo accused of partiality or prejudice. "It is
hard," he says, "in a new town, eB
peoially in ono of the Interior towns,
to make water and light service pay.
The cost of equipment and maintenance is high, and the demand limited, with the low dips of temperature
to inoreaBe tho trouble." This is quite
true. But whatever the cost, it is no-
oessary to provide a good water service. That no town can do without it
is as nooessary as air, or food. The
light Bervice is another question. That
is  an  affair   tbat   may  be  reckoned
Says the Winnipeg Free Press:
Hon. John Ooitigan votos with the
Dominion Government and is abused
by tbo Conservative press. Mr. Leigh-
ton McCarthy, a member of the same
House, votes with the Government
and is denounced in violent language
by the Opposition papers. A man is
not at liberty, it seems, in this country
to have bis own opinions or to differ
from hide-bound Conservatives with
out having his motives impugned and
bis conduct characterized." And this
same Free Press, for several mouths
past, has been berating the member
for Lisgar for displaying independence
through his newspapers and in the
House. It all depends on which side
the independoneo breaks out whether
it is to be commended   or   condemned.
Wall Papers    THOMSON'S
A cable to Tho Toronto Mail and
Empire of recent date says that the
Imperial authorities havo sent a favorable reply to the Washington proposal
of an Alaskan modus vivendi. The provisional boundarv was practically
agreed to a year ago, with the exception of a few miles of the Dalton trail,
at the end of the Chilkat Pass, from
Pyramid harbour. Tbe Washington
Government's suggestions relate to
this strip of tbe Dalton trail. Canada
bas agreed to the boundary with some
minor modifications, aud England
hjs confirmed it. A settlement of
the matter is expected, as it is not be-
lioved that tbe American Government
will raise any difficulties ovor Canada's
modifications.
The Rossland Miner sarcastically
recommends, in view of the opposition
to the Corbin charter, that moasures
be taken to prevent the establishment
of a ferry service botweeu Yictoria
and Port Angoles. The Spokane
Spokesman-Review is so pleased at
this that it follows it up with a suggestion tbat the Canadian authorities
should prohibit the running of steamers on the Kootenay River, to aud fro
across the boundary line. If the editors of the Rosslaud and Spokane papers cannot distinguish between these
and a Kettle River railway, they are
scarcely intelligent onough to set up
instructors of the publio. There
is such a thing ns intercourse that is
of mutual advantage; tho advantage
of a Corbin railway would be exclusively Mr. Corbin's and Canadians are
not bouud to promote foreign interosts
at their own expensf.
What did tho editor of The Victoria
Globe mean by publishing those
old verses, "Boil it dowu," immediately after an installment of Mr. Gos-
nell's itinerary which occupied about
two and a half columns?
Both the Groat Northern.and Northern Pacific in the neighboring Stato aro
engaging Japanese in preference to
Europeans. It is not because the latter can be obtained at a smaller wage,
for tho European is a superior workman aud cau easily make up tbe difference ; it is because the Jupanese are
more steady and reliable. \ gaug of
thom seut out to a section can be de
pended upon to stay thora uutil the job
is completed, whereas with Europeans
thoy are continually changing about
and giving rise to no end of annoyance, as well as expense in replacing
them. It would seiin that in Washington the Japanese are regarded as desirable Bottlers. And thoy have their labor agitators thore too.

Tfl BE ERECTED HERE
Proceedings of the Oity Council Last Night;
NEW CYCLIST BY-LAW.
Tbe Street  Eailway  By-law  Wns Laid
Over.���City Recreation Ground*
���Other Business Done-
It may now be considered as practically certain that, tbe Oily of Nelsou
will shortly possess coko ami gas
works. The bylaw granting fi franchise for tho erection of such works in
Nelson has been drafted, and received
yesterday its first and seuond readings.
It will be further considered on Thursday by the Council in committee ot
the whole, when any amendments
considered necessary will be inserted.
It is not probable, however, that any
important chages will be mado, in fact
Dr. Doolittle, who was present seemed
ciiiile satisfied that his proposition was
accepted and announced bis intention
of telegraphing tne result to his principals, Messrs. \V. H. Pearson, W. H.
Pearson, Jr., J. I*. Merrifleld nud J.
T. Wescott, of Tornoto,
Mayor Neelands was in tho chair
and Aid. Thomson, Beer, Kirkpatrick
and McKillop, wero also present.
After giving power to the gas company
to build the necessary works, the bylaw goes on to provide tbat work must
start within 00 days, and within six
months must supply gas to whoever
wants it. The company must also
spend at least $100,0(10 on the work.
The company, in order to protect the
City's electric light, must charge not
less than $51 per 1000 cubic feet of gas
to consumers, and tinder specified circumstances must light the streets at a
rate of $2 per 1,000 feet, while they
must supply the corporation with
power, if called upon, at the rate of
��1 per 1,000 feet. There are the usual regulations regarding the opening
up of streets, and the carrying away of
rubbish occasioned thereby. Clause
10 gives the City the right to takeover
tho works after 10 years at a pries to
bo fixed by arbitration. Clause 11
provides that the location of tho works
must be approved of by the City,
and clause 12 gives tho company an
exclusive franchise for 2b years.
Tbe special committee appointed to
look into the quostion of securing a
deed to the recreation grounds then
presented their report, to which was
annexed a letter written by Mr. R.
Marpole to the Hon. J, Fred Hume on
January 4, 1H!17, which said in part,
"Regarding the recreation ground for
the town of Nelson���1 am pleased fo
say that this matter was definitely arranged between us and tho Commissioner of Lands and Works last summer." "This arrangement was," the
report goes on to say, "that the C
P. R. should deed to the citv of Nelson one-half of block SO, and' half of
block (10, iu exchange for which land
the Provincial Government agreed to
give the C. P. R. lots elsewhere," In
view of tho fact that Mr Marpole stated
that a definite arrangement had been
come to, tha committee recomnionded
that Mr, Hume ba requested to urge
upon the O. P. R. the necessity of
carrying out this agreement, and also
that a copy of tho letter bo sent to
Mr. Marpole with a similar request.
Mr. Hume hns offered the city a Union
Jack flag 35x18 to be erected as soon
as a title is obtained to the laud. Tbe
Cuncii decided to adopt rho report, and
passed a voto of thanks to Mr. Hume
for his offer of the flag.
Tenders were then opened for snp-
nlying the City with a ton of pig lead.
The tenderers were tbe Lawrence
Haidwnre Co., H. Byers & Co., Nelsou Hardware Co., $110 each, and
Turner Boeton & Co., 5V4' cents a
pound, or $105 a ton. The lowest
euder was accepted.
A application from Mr. Snowdon
was read asking for a sidewalk from
bis house to Josophino street. The request was referred to the Board of
Works.
Tlio petition for a by-law authorizing the raising of $10,000 for public
buildings was read. Ant*' tho bylaw
itself then received its first and
second readings.
Au invitation from the Mayor and
Council of Victoria asking tho Mayor
and Council of Nolson to visit their
city on the Queen's Birthday was
read.
The Nelson Ore Purchasing Company
wrote asking for a water connection
with thoir works ou Water street,
and also that Poplar street might be
opened up. The Oity engineer stated
that the cost of the work would bo
about $800, and it was deoidod bofore
answering the request to And out what
the Company would do in the wny
of contributing to the cost.
Alderman Beer thou introduced a
bylaw regulating bicycle riding within tho Oity limits. The main provisions are that bicycles may not be
ridden more than eight miloa an hour
on the streets, or six miles au hour
when passing comers. Bells must
bo carried, and sounded whon foot passengers or vehicles approncii. Lanterns
nmst be carried after dark. Cyclists
must not ride on sidewalks, and must
make way of foot passengers.
A resolution wns tbon introduced by
Alderman Beer providing for devoting
$1100 towards the construction of a
cycle path, providing the cyclists will
subscribe half that amount. It was
suggested that the cyclists hold a meeting and confer with tho City enginoor
as to tho best location of the track, he
being authorized to offer $2 for ovory
dollar subscribed by tbo cyclists.
The question of providing a proper
dumping ground for tbe scavengers
came up. It was generally acknowledged that the matter was urgent, but
no satisfactory solution of the problem
hiis yot beon reached. It appears
there have boen complnints made by
owners of cows in Bogustown that
much uf thoir milk litis beeu spoilt, by
their cows having eaten some of the
garbage deposited.
It was decided to have the Oity
scales put in place forthwith.
The wash house nuisance wns then
discussed, and a coiumitt* o consisting
of Aid. Kirkpatrick, Beer, and Thomson wns {appointed to look into tbe
matter thoroughly   and make a report.
It was decided to lay n six foot sido
walk ou tbo north side of Silica stroet
between Hondryx nnd Josephine.
A number of bills and accounts recommended by tbo Finance Oommittee were ordered paid.
Tho Oouncil thought it advisable not
to go iuto the street railway question
nt thnt hour and their solicitor Mr.
A, M. Johnson, concurring, the matter
wns laid over until Thursday afternoon at 2 o'clock.
