Eleventh  Year
Conservative Standard-Bearer Meeting With
Great Success-Enthusiastic MeetiDg
in Nelson on Saturday Night.  .
On the fifteenth of November Mr.
John McKane, mine owner, of Rossland, buckled on his politial armor,
drew his Highland form up to its full
height, and from the snow capped
peaks gave forth the cry of the Conservative clan and descended to the
valleys to fight the battles of his
party. Since then he hns been at it
day and night, traveling over hundreds of miles of country and given an
impetus to the Conservative cause that
will spell victory ou Thursday next.
lie is a splendid campaigner, full of
energy and fire, and no man in the
constituency knowa better its wants.
Such a man in Opposition can do moro
in any house of parliament than a
dozen weak men on the treasury
benches. "A mining man for a mining constituency" is one of the strong
arguments that will place him at the
head of the polls this week.
It was at Rossland that Mr. McKane opened his campaign, meeting
on the platform Mr. A. L. Sifton, M.
L. A., Calgary, and Mr. R. B. Kerr.
of Phoenix. The first speaker pleaded
with the laboring men to rally to
the support of Mr. Galliher, pointing
out that the Liberal candidate had
always been a staunch friend of labor
and champion of the eight-hour law.
In his reply Mr.McKane took issue on
this question and asked how Mr. Gal-
liher could pose as the particular
friend of the laboring man when he
signed a petition praying for the repeal of the bill. He asked tlie chairman of the meeting to appoint a committee from the audience to enquire
into the matter and see if tho charge
was not correct. Ho was willing that
the chairman himself (Mr. .1. Ii. Mc-
Arthur, a Liberal) and Mr. Sifton
should be that committee,but Mr. Mc-
Arthur appointed a representative of
each party. This was the commencement of the petition incident that
assnmed great prominence during the
From Rossland Mr.McKane went direct to the main line of the 0. 1'. R.
and commenced an active campaign
there. On his way he telegraphed
Mr.Galliher to meet him at Kamloops
and settle the matter of the petition
there. Mr. Oalliher could havo done
this by missing only one meeting and
had he done so it is probable that
nothing more would have been heard
of the petition. Rut Mr. Oalliher
would not meet his opponent and refused the invitation. The Kamloops
meeting was large and enthusiastic
and Mr. McKane was most successful.
He read the petition which he had
accused Mr. Oalliher of signing and
while he was doing so Mr. Galli-
her's agent, Mr. Swanson, jumped up
and read a telegram from tho Liberal
candidate denying Mr. McKane's
charge and branding it as false. In
reply to this Mr. McKane read a telegram from the Minister of Mines stating that Mr. tialliher's name was attached to the petition presented to tho
Minister and asking for tho repeal of
the law. Mr, Swanson then stated
that Mr. Oalliher had placed him in
a very false position. Mr. McKane
then went on to Ashcroft whero ho
addressed a big meeting with Col.
Prior, M. P. Vornon, Enderby and
Armstrong were visited and at each
place the Conservative candidate was
most enthusiastically received and
assuied of substantial majorities. At
Revelstoke a monster meeting was
held and Mr. McKane and Mr. Oalliher came together for the Hrpt time
during the .campaign. Theie was a
very lively time. lion. J. H. Ross, of
the Territories, Mr. James Martin,
M. P. P., of jRosstand, aud Mr. F. J.
Deane of Kamloops, supported Mr.
Oalliher against Mr. McKane, but the
Scotchman cou] not be downed and
more than held ;iis own against them
all. It was th re that Mr. Galliher
admitted that In -jhad signed the petition,but lamely tjtid that he was forked to do it by   the  Dundee Mining
Company, of which he was vice-presi-
dnt, and that "his heart was not in
it." Mr.McKane did not spare his opponent and in Bcathing terms denounced his insincerity to the working man. "Some of you dyed-ln-tlie-
wool Liberals," exclaimed Mr. Mo-
Ka_e in a voice of thunder, "may
send Mr. Galliher to Ottawa, but If
the Good Book is true, unless ho le-
pents and becomes sincere, he will
never reach the Kingdom of Heaven."
Mr. Galliher then accused Mr. McKane of being Hon. Mr. Mackintosh's
henchman in the Provincial election
and handling the hoodie. Mr. McKane
challenged Mr. Galliher to name a
committee to investigate the charge,
but the challenge was not accepted.
As a matter of fact Mr. McKane was
in England at the time of the elections. Mr. Deane and Mr. Martin got
to work to break up the meeting and
things became so warm that Mr. Martin retired, afterwards explaining to
Mr. McKane that he had a cramp in
his leg. Mr. Deane was called down
so effectually by the stalwart Conservative that he hasn't been heard of
since. The next meeting was hold at
Sandon and there Mr. Galliher refused
to speak unless he closed the meeting.
Mr. McKane gave way, rather than
have the audience lose time by waiting for the dispute to be settled any
other way. He characterized Mr.Ual-
liher's Mackintosh assertion as uttor
ly false and cowardly and that it he
was a man Mr. Galliher would apologize at once. Mayor Pitts of Sandon
wired Mr. J. 11. MeArthur at Rossland, asking him if the wild assertion
was true and the reply was evidently
intended to be kept quiet as it was of
a nature to bring from Mr. McKane
the assertion that it waB "evasive,
false, and unworthy of a man." Mr.
McKane has been associated with Mr.
MeArthur in Hoard of Trade nnd other
work calculated to benefit the country
and was surprised at tho reply. At
Sllverton, New Denver, and Slocan
City enthusiastic meetings were held
and Mr. McKane was well received
by the miners. Being a miner himself he said he understood what was
wanted here and iu lighting for them
he would be lighting for himself. The
lead iudusry would have his most
careful attention and ho would urge a
policy that would foster aud encourage it. The meeting at Nelson on Saturday, one at Kaslo tonight at which
Mr. Clarke Wallace will assist Mr.
McKane,and one at Rossland ou Tuesday, when Mr. Nicholas Flood Davin
will appear with the candidate, will
close Mr. McKane's splendid campaign,
lie regrets exceedingly that he has
no timo to visit tlio Boundary and
Bait Kootenay but he Is sure of good
support in those districts as tlio, work
has goue on steadily.
One of Mr. McKane's arugments
was that the franchise bill of the Gov
eminent was monstrous as it would
enable Japs to vote. For this assertion lie was laughed at by Mr. Sifton
and other Liberal speakers but the
other day Chief Justico McColl declared that under It Japs could vote.
Alexander Dick, and other spellbinders of the party will address tho electors. Campaign songs will be sung
by the Nelson quartette. The Labor
party is making every effort possible to
carry their cause to a successful issue
and they are sparing uo pains to
make the meeting an interesting one.
Mr. James Wilks arrived in Nelson
last evening after holding a meeting
at Cranbrook on Friday night and
one at Fernie on Saturday night. He
said that ho met with great success
and that the meeting held at Fernie
was the largest political meeting
ever held in that town.
"The Cumberland War Horse" was
never heard to better auvantago on
the hustings than on Saturday night
when he appeared on tlie stage of the
Opera nouse and in a magnificent
speech urged the electors to support
Mr. McKane. Sir Charles Tupper, for
nearly half a century has occupied a
prominent place in Canadian history,
and this fact helped to crowd the
Opera House to the doors, and to keep
it that way until midnight was due
to tlie masterly address of Hon. N.
Clarke Wallace. It was a meeting that
should stir the Conservatives to Bee
that Mr.McKane's majority is a handsome one. Applause, long and loud,
greeted the speakers, from the time
Mr. McKane opened the meeting until
Mr. Wallace closed it, when cheers
were given for tho Queen and the
speakers. Mr. McKane clearly defined
his position and made a very good impression. Sir Charles waB pursuasivo
and eloquont and Mr. Wallace was lucid and convincing. It was a triumph
for the Conservative cause and will
greatly strengthen Mr.   McKane here.
The Libevals intend having two
moro meetings before polling day.
There will bo a rousing rally in Mr.
Gallilier's committee rooms this ovenlng, and on Wednesday Professor
Alexunder has consented to shorten is
lecture and allow the Liberal meeting
to start at the Opera House at _:lf>.
Mr. Oalllher and Mr. Aulay Morrison will address the Wednesday evening meeting, and the last night of the
campaign should see an enthusiastic
gathering. Tho last mass meeting
to be held in Nelson during the present campaign by the Independent Labor party,will take placo at the Opera
House at 7:30 tomorrow evening.

jdidate.will arrive in NelBon this evening and will be the principal speaker

Large Body of Them Will Settle in
Washington and Montana.
St. Paul, Minn., Dec. 3.���Between
000 and 1,000 Boer families will locate
on the lines of tho Groat Northern
and Northern Pacific. Rumors to this
effect have been current for three or
four months, and the general public
has been led to believe that they wore
rumors only. Information is at hand
now showing that the immigration
from South Africa is but a matter of
a short time. The Burlington wus
instrumental in bringing to the
northwest 32 representative Boers,
who are now in Montana and who
have been searching for desirable locations. There are a number of
locations on the Great Northern and
Northern Pacific where such a large
party could find desirable homes.
North Dakota, Montana and Washington offer special inducements, and the
Boer agents have visited all of these
places and have selected sites for the
immigrants who are to follow. Railroad officials are adverse to giving out
information concerning tlie Boer settlement because several lines have
been in competition for them, but it
was said today that homes havo been
found for them in western Montana
and eastern Washington.

A Returned Prospector Tells
of the Peace River
Says It Is Richer Than the
Klondike and Is Easily
Mr. Harry Wright, registrar, has
Issued 15 marrlBgo license, during the
month of November,
James II. Rowley, who has been in
the Peace River district near Manson,
an wholly unexplored territory,
about 000 miles straight north of Vancouver, sineo 180f��, lias just arrived in
Nelson. Ho states without a doubt
that it is a much richer district than
the Klondike and probably it is the
richest country in the world.
lie and his partnei, A. E.Austin,
have been up there during the past
five years and they have struck it exceedingly rich. Gold is found_ on
every creek and on every tributary,
and is obtained readily by placer
mining. This place is yet unknown
hut Mr. Rowloy has brought down
such valuable information that it haB
greatly excited the old time millers,
and it it expected that there will be a
stampede to it iu the near future. Ho
und his partner are at present the
only white men who huve made a
lengthy stay in the country,except the
Hudson's Bay agent, who is residing
at Fort Graham, about loo miles from
where  they have been working.
Although the gold is found in abundance in tlio sands of the creek Mr.
Rowley says that there is still larger
quantities of tlie precious metal in the
Mr. Rowley has come to the Nelson
district to obtain a knowledge of
milling as ho expects to take np with
him a stamp mill. If a five stamp
mill was kept in operation it would
easily give returns of S",00 per day he
Ills experience during his stay
there was quite pleasant, except the
time when people were passing by
there on the Edmonton trail to the
Klondike. At this time all the game
and provisions were swept from the
country and nothing was left for Mr.
Rowley. For four days he was without a thing but water and had to cut
tho bark off trees. Previous to this
he was forced to kill his dog, and
thus prolong his existence. When this
was gone he had to resort to his horse
oating its flesh without any flavoring
The district is easily reached. From
Vancouver the month of Skeena River, which is distant about 500 miles,
can be reached by steamers. Steamers ean pass up Skeena River to Hazelton, a distance of 18(1 miles. From
this point tlie district lies about 100
miles directly east and can be reached
readily by the Omenica trail, which
is in fair condition at presenet.
In the course of an interview Mr.
Rowley suid:
"Peace River is a district of great
mineral possibilities. Its climate for
six months of the year, that is, from
May to October, is delightful. Game
is abundant. Thu streams are full of
fish,und from this point of view these
aro highly appreciable conditions.
The greatest obstacle in the way of
Unvoting Is the largu quantity of fallen timber. Tlie best route into the
auriferous district is by Skeena River
to Hazelton, from there the packtrail
can be takon to Tom Creek, which is
situated on tlie western slate belt of
the country.
"The Indians in the district are a
poBcable and industrious lot. Many of
them aro now making largo sums at
mining. Ono of them, "Old Plug
lint Tom," so named from his swell
head dress, is said to have taken 8nr>,-
oon out of his claim on Tom Creek.
The stampede to the district occurred
in the springs of 1871 and 1872, nnd
in a desultory way   before   that date.
"It is estimated that between two
and three mllion dollars were taken
out of the camp at the time of this
rush. For a timo several claims paid
as high as a thouHand dollars a day to
the man. NuggetB varying in size
from 810 to 82(10 hnve been taken out
of the district. The principal gold
bearing crooks in those days were
Manson, Black .luck, Sla e, Lost, Ocr-
mansenn and Silvor Creek. Tom
Creek was discovered in 1880. The
discovery of this creek, which is so
near the former streams, shows how
loose has been tho prospecting of the
count ty. A claim on Black .lack Creek
paid for instance, $1,000 a day to the
man for two or three days.
"Discovery bur on Manson Creek
paid 8Ii,000 to tho ton. Robert
Howell, the locator of the lirst claim
on Manson Creek, took out S".. <M��<��
worth of gold in one day. Tobaggon
claim on Germanson paid 81,20(1 to the
man as the result of six days work.
The gold on this claim was found on
three feet deep of wash.
"The owners of the ground, however, never succeeded in tracing the
direction of tlie channel; indeed, no
very systematic attempt was made to
do so. Shortly, these men, in com
pany with tho greater number of min
ers in the camp joined in the rush of
'7(1 and '77 to Casiar. Thus the Omin-
eca gold excitement barely lasted two
"For those intending to prospect in
that country, the most promising Held
is the Ingeniea, 80 miles up above its
mouth. The Sctoot, and the streams
lying between it and the Ingeniea.
This is unexplored territory,with line
gold propects, on its eastern and western extremities. The slates and schist
lying between these two points (the
Ingeniea canon and Bear Lake) i6 of
the same texture as the creek of the
old camp cut through, and, if thoroughly explored will yield as high re
turns and perhaps better.
"It will be sometime, doubtless, before quartz mining is attempted in the
district, taking into consideration the
present difficulties in the way of
transportation, the cost of supplies
and the price of labor.
"Exceedingly promising galona
ledges are known to exist. Boulder
Creek has a ledge of ore, two feet wide
averaging about 120 ounces in silver
per ton. Native silver nnd copper oc

Vital Crocks. Platinum occurs in very
fine pariclcs on the Omenica and Ingeniea burs. Fine gold occurs throughout the course of the Omineela, Finlay
and Ingincca. Very little prospecting, however, haB been done on the
headwaters of the two last named

their  basins   could   be made at small

creeks  worked   up to tlie present   are
situated in the slates   and  schists  ly
ing between Germansen   Lauding and
Tacla   Lake,   which   has   a   width of
about 00 miles.     The schists of which
the country is formed, are everywhere
much   disturbed,   are   broken   up   by
intrusions of granite   and other eruptive rooks, and   present   in   tli is  and

Special Meeting of the City Council Being
Held This Afternoon-Mayor Houston
Is in a Hopeless Minority.
Mr. W. J. Thompson, who until his
suspension last Tuesday by Mayor
Houston, was Chief of the Nelson Fire
Department, will be reinstated to thut
position this afternoon unless the
Mayor can show good cause for his
The Mayor was compelled, through
a request of the Aldermen, to call a
Special meeting of tlie Council to consider tlie matter and the meeting was
called for ���! o'clock this afternoon.
Since the demand of the aldermen His
Worship lias, through bis paper and
otherwise made every effort to make
the public believe that he was right
in dismissing Chief Thompson and appointing George Bigelow, but in this
he has been unsuccessful. By distorting the remarks of a leading insurance man he attempted to make the
people believe that the insurance
agents approved of bis action. Finding again that his efforts were fruitless he has during the past two days
been circulating a petition to himself
and the Council asking for the institution in the City of a paid lire department, thinking in this way to wiggle
out of tho mess in which he found
himself. How many names he has
secured to this petition Tlie Miner has
been uunlile to learn, as it is still in
the hands of the Mayor. That he has
secured a number, however, there is
no question as there are several business men in Nelson who are of the
opinion thut a paid department iB a
necessity. But as this question has
nothing whatever to do with the present trouble it will not find place in
the discussions of the Aldermen this
afternoon, unless tbe gentemen themselves allow Mayor Houston to introduce it.
There is another matter which
may also be introduced by the Mayor.
His Worship has not yet gotten over
tbe idea that there is a cliquu at the
Firo Hall which has always been
working against him. He is still nursing that sore spot and will leave nothing undone to break up the feeling of
contentment which now und always
has existed in the fire department.
Ho wants action taken to bar the men
from having thier messroom In the
Fire Hall. Every business uia.i with
the smallest grain of common sense
knows that this would lower tho cffl
cieucy of tlie lire department more
than would any other step that could
be taken. Taking their meals in the
Fire Hall aud sleeping there, means
that a majority of tlie menibcrs of the
department spend practically half of
their time at the Fire Hall and are
thereforo prepared during that time
to answer an alarm at a moment's notice. During the past ten months it
lias so happened that all of the most
serious ilres have occurred during
meal hours and the men have been
able to respond with as much alacrity
as a paid department. That the public
may recall these tires The Miner will
mention some of them. There was the
Nelson Furniture Co., flro at noon,
one flro in tho C. P. R. offices at noon
and another nt breakfast time, the
Burns firo at noon, a lire in tho alley
In the rear of Byers store at ii o'clock,
and the lire at the Nelson Saw and
Planing mill just as tho men were
leaving the hall after lunch. It is
safe to say that if tlie jie.n had not
been on tho spot at the time, i hat at
least one of these tires would have resulted seriously. And yet, In order to
vent his spite, Mayor Houston would
scatter these men ubout town at meal
times and leave tho City without tha
excellent Are protection It enjoys at
the present timo. And he says tlie business interests of the City aro with
him, although he has failed to publish the name ol one man who approves of his action in dismissing
Thompson and appointing Bigelow.
At this afternoon's meeting of the
Council the committee appointed to
inquire into the fire department muddle, the committee consisting of  Aid.
Hall, Irvine and   Arthur, will   report
as follows:
"To 1Mb   Worship,   the   Mayor,   and
"We, your committee, re firemen's
petition, beg to report that we have
gone carefully und considerately Into
the matter and doom ^It advisable to
keep the fire department as efficient
as it now is. This can only ho donu
by regular prnctico and as firemen's
duties are sueh aB to render life hazardous, we ure of tho opinion that
their request is only reasonable. Wo
therefore recommend that the firemen's petition bo received and the request granted."
Mayor Houston will oppose the
adoption of thiB report, but it is quite
likely he will find himself alone in
the opposition.
Duke and Duchess of Manchester Welcomed by Papa Zimmerman.
New York, Dec. 3.���The Duke and
Duchess of Manchester, formerly Miss
Helen Zimmerman of Cincinnati, arrived Saturday evening on the American line steamer St. Louis. Mr. Zimmerman, father of the Duchess, who

Iu an excellent, speech, which made
a most favorable impression on the
large audience present at the Opera
House on Saturday night, Mr. McKane remarked on the danger of the
Japanese vote in addition to that of
Mongolian competition. One is
thought to be bad enough; the two
will be unbearable. This Province is
not being put under many obligations
to the politicians. Iu Eastern Canada
there is absolute indifference to the
invasion of Chinese; the evil, such
as it is, does not affect that portion
of the Dominion,and the people refuse
to become concerned for tho sake of
British Columbia. The politicians are
obliged to look about for votes, how-
ever,aud this Province sends its quota
of memberB. Five years ago, when
the present Premier was so anxious to
get himself and his party elected to
power, he promised his followers here
to govern himself by their wishes in
dealing with the question of Mongolian immigration, lie got into power,
but did nothing. The same laws and
regulations that were in force when
be came in were continued, notwithstanding members of both parties
from this Province urged that more
restrictive measures be adopted. Ab
the time for another election drew
nigh and votes were again needed, he
raised the poll tax a few dollars and
appointed a Commission of inquiry.
Tho increase of the poll tax is doing
little to stem the tide , and out here
one wonders what the Commission has
to investigate. So far Sir Wilfrid
Laurier has done nothing practical
or effective to carry out his pledge
to deal with the matter as the people
of the Province desire. Tho Yellow
evil,in its influences on the industrial
conditions of the white population, is
as great today as it was five years ago,
and there has been no genuine evidence of a desire on the part of the
Government at Ottawa to take the
least step to abate it. They have
merely trifled with the question, and
the trifling promises   to be continued.
But a new and greater evil is now
threatening us. No effective restriction iB put upon the immigration of
Chinese and Japanese. That of the
latter especially has been on the increase this year, and has assumed
large proportions. They become naturalised, whether fraudulently or not
does not appear to matter. Under a
law of this Province they wero prohibited from voting, but in abolishing
the old Dominion Election Act tho
Liberal Government repealed this safeguard, and according to the judgment of Chief Justice McCoil a few
days ago ' two thousand of them will
go on the lists and vote at the pending election in Burrard. Two thousand votes will turn tbe scale in any
constituency in tho Dominion. Their
votes will go to the Government candidate,who is pandering to them, and
for the first time we shall have a representative of the .Japanese in the
Canadian Commons, to legislate on all
matters affoctlug labor in British Columbia. This is an alaiming outlook,
for which the country Is indebted to
the Liberal Government and party
Mr. McKane is alive to the dangers
threatened by It, and if the electors
will Bond him to Parliament���as they
will if they have the least appreciation of their own interests���he will do
all that one strong, earnest man can
to remedy tho evil and Bee that effee
tive measures are taken to prevent
its recurrence. He will have tho back
ing of a powerful Opposition, and his
protests will be listened to. Mr. Onl-
lihei is too much of a partisan to differ from the Government on any question, and Mr. Foley, standing alone,
would be powerless.
marked for him on Thursday next; tho
many Liberals who do not believe in
u party of broken and dishonored
pledges should support him to a man,
if only as a protest against the new
methods which havo boen introduced
by leaders who think less of principles than of oflice. Mr. McKane deserves tlie voies of all who, for any
reason, are dissatisfied with the Government of Sir Wilfrid Laurier and
Mr. Tarte, and it will not bo creditable to Nelson if he goes out of It
without a substantial majority.
The Conservatives of Nelson discovered on Saturday night that in Mr.
McKane they have a candidate in
every way worthy of them. They saw
in him a man possessed of intelligence, courage, and great earnestness,
precisely the kind of man to succeed
in whatever he undertakes. Every
Conservative vote  in town should bo
Let those who believe that Mr. Tarto
is a lit man to govern this Dominion
vote for Mr. Galliher j that is their
privilege as citizens of a free country, however mistaken they may be
in exercising it. But every man who
believcB that a British Dominion
sliould have rulers of a different sort
should voto for Mr. McKane. Men of
this class are in a majority in Yale
Cariboo, and all they have to do is to
turn out and vote to insure his return This should be the duty, not of
one man, but of every man.

With Mr. Turto master of Quebec,

The proposition to establish ...Chain

or by The Colonial Goldfields Gazette.
In the course of some remarks on
the subject it says: "If the Chamber
is established, it may do a great deal
of good in making known throughout
Oreat Britain the riches of the min
ing districts of the Province, concern
ing which there is now still much ignorance. The new Chamber must
however, be careful to go the right
way to work hy only disseminating
trustworthy information, and not by
circulating vague, exaggerated, aud
unsupported statements of fabulous
mineral wealth. British Columbia
has lofig stood iu need of accurate
anrl| promptly published statements as
to Its mineral output." With capable and trustworthy men to manage
it, there is no reason why the Chamber should not realise all that the
most exacting friend of tho Province
could expect from it.

I was travelling on a stage in ratli-
CT a wild part of California, and arrived at a mining camp, where we
had to get down for refreshments. As
wo drove up tho driver said: "They
are expecting you here, Mr.Sullivan,"
I was much ploasod, and w,icn I
reached the piace I found a knot of
prominent citizens at the whiskey
���tore. Tho foremoBt of them came up
to a big burly man by my Bide nnd
said. "Aro you Mr. Sullivan?" The
man Baid "No," and pointed to me.
Tho citizen looked at, mo rather contemptuously, and after a while said:
^���hy, how much do you weigh?"
thought thiB was a curious method
eating the power of a composer,
I at onco answered : "About 102

"thal's odd to mo, anyhow. Do) you

Mrs. W. A. Maedonald, who has
been seriously ill nt the City hospital
for a week past, is out of immediate
danger and lier recovery is now looked for.
[gland Revenue collections for the
months of November are as follows:
Spirits, S:i.717.4:i; malt, 8285.00;
tobacco, $1,1011.50; raw leaf,
$11.40; cigars. 8833,00. Total, 85,-

The usual meeting of tbe City Council will be held at 8 o'clock this evening. Two important quostions will
be considered, namely, the abolition
of the City Wards, and tbe increaso in
tbe number of aldermen to eight. At
the last meeting tho Mayor said that
tlie Council bad power to do away
with the wards, but he was wrong.
There is no act or amendment to that
affect, and therefore the question will
have to bo laid aside.
The members of tbe local masonic
lodge held a meeting today and
decided to hold their annual ball January 3, 1001. Tbe following committee were appointed: Music and printing, Messrs. Quinlan, Day and Weir;
decoration, Messrs. P. Irvine, O.
Hodge, and J. Dover; refreshments,
S. S. Conaon, Sims, and Klrkpatrick;
invitation, Messrs. O. Johnstone, P.
Fletcher, S. Cannon and Day. Invitations can be obtained from many of
tbo latter committee.
Although the present Hoard of Public Works are to be congratulated on '
the many improvements throughout!
the City, there are a few little things
still left undone. Portions of two
streets remain to be put tn a good
condition. Victoria street from Josephine to Hall is in a decidedly bad
condition. Thero is a fair passage for
vehicles but thero has been no side
walk laid. The western end of Haker
Street, which leads to the new yards
of the C. P. It., and the old station is
also without a side walk, and the
first impression of Nelson, to new
comers by tho C. P. Re., is not a favor
ble one. Tho question of improving
these places will undoubtedly be considered at the meeting this evening.
Never in the history of Nelsou has
there been a lecturer who has succeeded In drawing such crowds as Prof.
Alexander. Night after niglit tne
Opera House has been filled aud it is
the general expression that ho has
aroused more interest in practical science and stimulated more ambition in
the way of right living than other
speeches or lectures which have been
heard here. His lectures to men yesterday afternoon aud evening wero
especially worthy of commendation.
Tonight his great lecture on "Love,
Courtship, Marriage and Jealously,"
will be given and certainly the house
should be crowded as it undoubtedly
will bo. lie will close his series on
Wednesday niglit with a lecture on
how to read character by eyes, nose,

or. There was an excellent chance to
test the speed of the boats on Saturday. They were both bound for'Kim-
lo, When the steamer Kaslo was opposite tbo mouth of Cedar Creek the
Kokanee was seen coming up the
Lake and the Kaslo waited fully
twenty minutes so that an even start
eould be made for tbe raco to Kaslo,
a distance of about 13 miles. The
water was smooth and conditions favorable for a race. The crew on each
boat were given orders to execute
their duties in the quickest manner
possible. When the steamer Kokanee
pulled up on a line with the Kaslo.
both steamers gave a sharp whistle,
and nil knew the race was on. Unusually fast time was made and it looked for a time as if honors would be
even. Hut nearing Kaslo tbe Kokanee
was gradually gaining and when that
port was reached she was leading the
steamer Kaslo by one and a half miles

An Interesting Boat Race on the Lake
on Saturday.
The C. P. R. steamer Kokanee came
Into the port of Nelson this morning
with a new broom tied high on her
foremast, as tho result of being victorious in a race with the steamer
Kaslo of tho Kootenay Railroad i-
Navigation Co., on Saturday afternoon. It has long been known thnt
the Kokanee was the fastest boat on
Kootenay Lake. Since the new _tcam-
cr Kaslo was launched Homo jealousy
haB prevailed between the ollieers of
the two boats and of course the captain of tho Kaslo thought that his
boat was second to none us lo speed.
