BATTLE OF
Poles Open at  8  O'clock;
Close at 4.
IT IS FARWELL VS. HUME
11, 181-7, have been found between
Kemo and Pit, in the province of
Yeniseisk, lie says the locality is|
cultivated, and it seems incredible
that the corpses and the car of the
balloon could have been there a year
and a half without having been
found before this. Further, Andree's
brother points out that in stormy
weather the bodies would be separated from the wreck of the balloon.

Today conies the battle of ballots.
The campaign in the Nelson Riding
has beenfshort and sharp. There
has been little outward excitement,
but beneath the surface, old cain-
paigners have been hard at work.
It bas been, too, a clean campaign.
There have been none of those personal attacks which have disgraced
campaigns in other parts of the
Province at other times. The
friends of Mr. Farwell and Mr.
Hume have engaged injclean politics.
There has been no bad feeling shown
by any of the political workers and
whoever wins today will have no
unpleasant remembrances of the
campaign.
That it will be a Farwell victory
the supporters of that gentleman
entertain little doubt. They are
quite confident of success and base
their confidence upon the reports of
their canvas, which has been must
thorough and conqire-e.
On the other hand, the friends of Mr.
Hume teel confident ot the success
of their candidate. Mr. Hume,
himself, professes supreme confidence but was undoubtedly slightly
worried last night.
There will be lots of work toda\
between 8 and 4 o'clock, the hours
of voting. That there will be a
big vote cast there seems little
doubt as every voter present in the
Riding has been solicited.
BENEATH A WALL
MONTREAL FIKEMAN MEETS DEATH
WHILE AT W0EK.
A Fatal Blaze on  Ohaboillez   Square���A
Wall May be Kesponsible for
Two Deaths,
The Rossland  Record   of  yesterday  says:    Tomorrow   is   election
day   in   Nelson.    It    is    Ministei
Hume against A. S. Farwell.   Thev
were   opposing   candidates  in Jul)
and Mr.   Hume   was successful   b\
only 12 votes.    Since  then  he   has
been made Minister   of  Mines   and
fathered the   Alien  Exclusion   Act
His  Government  has   reduced  llu
wages of men employed   upon public woiks, from $2.50 to $2   a day.
Hume's constituents are   complain
ing that the  trails,   roads,   bridges,
court house   and  other public   improvements    that were under   win
when   he   was   elected,   have   been
slopped.    All these   things   are  regarded seriously in a mining section
and will more that*, likely  offset the
"honor" of having a member "who
is in the Cabinet," so It   appears to
us from this distance that Mr. Minister is very apt to get  beaten.  We
may be excused  for saying   that   il
would be a just rebuke lo Mr. Hume
and his Government If they should
be turned down for their lack ol
proper considerations of the mining
regions and the laboring people.
The final public meeting- of the
Farwell-Hume campaign was held
in the Salvation Army barracks lasl
night. It was very largely attended
and every issue of the campaign was
discussed. Mr. T. tl. Proclor acted as chairman and the speakers on
behalf of Mr. Farwell were J. H.
Howes, I). B. Bogle, W. A. Macdonald and Mr. Farwell. For Mr.
Hume the candidate, himself appeared and supporting him were Mess s.
W.   A. Gnliher and Wilkes.
Montreal, Feb. 13.���One fireman
killed   and  another badly  wounded
was   a result of a lire which started
shortly after   1 1 o'clock   this morning  in  T.   Lamb's building, corner
of Chaboillez Square and Chaboillez
street.     The   building-    is   a   large
three   story   brick    on^,  facing  on
Chaboillez Square.    One portion ol
ihe building  was occupied by F, C.
Ilirseh, grocei,   and another by the
ChtiboiUv-z   Squate    bl'uDch 01   Vine
Marie bank.    Portions ot the upper
Hats  were  occupied as private residences   by   Dr.   Roy and Mr. John
Lavelle, book agent, and Mr. Thos,
Lamb,   owner  of the   building, his
olliee   facing on the  block on Chab-
oilez   street.    Aboul    half an  hour
after the arrival  of  the firemen an
explosion,caused by gas and smoke,
occurred and  a portion of tiie brick
wall on Chaboillez street was forced
out.    Sub-Chief Dubois and several
oilier firemen were working a Stream
111   Chaboillez   street    at   lhe time,
and were caught in shower of bricks
from lhe falling wall.     Dubois managed   to  escape   with   several    bad
cuts about his face, bul Fireman Ed
Smith   and  J.   Mooney,   of No,  12
lire   station,   received   the full force
of  the falling- wall   and were buried
beneath the bricks.     Fireman Smith
was taken   out in a dying condition
and   removed to   a  saloon near by,
where   he   died   shortly afterwards.
Fireman   Mooney   was seriously injured   and was taken  lo a hospital.
Owing- to the quickness with which
the lire spread, several of the tenants
had   narrow escapes.    John Lavallt
had  just   time   to gel his wife, who
was   sick,   out    of  his Hal, when it
was   in   flames.    'The building was
almost   completely   destroyed,     but
the   firemen prevented the lire from
spreading   lo   the    lire station and
adjoining buildings.     'The  building
is owned by Mr. Thomas Lamb and
is valued al about $40,000; covered
by insurance.

DISALLOWANCE.
allownnce the Ministers  al Ottawa
will have to decide.
New Books.
The Golden and Revelstoke newspapers contain such conflicting ac-!
counts of the Northeast Kootenay
nomination th-it it is impossible to
make bead or tail of it. The incident, beyond doubt irregular if not
much worse, is complicated to a
still greater degree by the fact, acknowledged on both sides, that
the Returning-Ollicer had been
expected to resign to accept the
nominaton in the interest of the Opposition.Whether he played a double
part will be disclosed in time no
doubt; but tbat the proceedings on
nomination day were irregular is too
clear for dispute. If the judges were
clothed with power to clap some of
those smart politicians into prison,
we should soon have qn end to
these disreputable election tricks.

Whittaker's   Almanac   1899.
A New York Press agent has a
curious idea of the working of tbe
Canadian constitution. He had
been assigned the duty of reporting
the Cabinet meeting recently held
in that city, for the greater convenience of the Canadian Ministers
who are acting as Commissioners
in the negotiations now going on at
Washington. The Federal right ol
disallowance is clear, he says, bul
its exercise was never attempted
except in the case of the Manitoba
school law. It was thought that
another exception would be made in
the case of the British Columbia law
to exclude aliens from our placer
mines.
We need not be greatly surprised
that  the average American citizen
knows   so little  of the right of disallowance  and  the exercise  of it,
when  so   many of   our own neople
manifest such ignorance of tbe subject.    The   intelligent    reader does
not require to be told that the Manitoba school law was not disallowed
and   that   many  other  things have
been.    Tbe right of disallowance  is
not  only clear, but   its exercise has
been a matter of frequent occurence.
It was included in the British North
America Act, for use not for show.
It  was  and   remains a very proper
provision.    If something like it had
been included   in the American constitution, the Ignited   States  would
have  been  spared the great Rebellion of thirty odd years ago, for the
seceding   States would have understood that,   although   States' rights
were to be respected, they were not
superior to the rights of the Union.
The Canadian   Provinces have unquestioned  authority    to   legislate
along certain lines; but it  was foreseen that this right might be abused
and power   was   reserved   to   the
Dominion  to   correct the  abuse by
disallowing the objectionable  legis-
lition.     If  this   had   not been provided, the   Provinces  and   the Federal   authority  would  be subject to
the risk of constant conflict, as there
would be the spectacle of  the lower
authority   legislating    againsl    the
interests of the greater and  in contempt   of superiority.     In this way
there might   easily be a  confederation of inharmonious and conflicting
Provinces,    and   a feeble, uncertain
Dominion tbat existed by the grace of
its parts. There has been ample evidence to show tbat without the  restraining influence of disallowance,
which is merely but another expression for the respect for the  Federal
authority, the Dominion of Canada
would not occupy tbe proud position
il does today.
The right of disallowance is supposed to be exercised whenever Provincial legislation is opposed to the
interest of the Canadian people as a
whole. Only little minds believe
that the Province has the right to do
wrong.     Where  the   effects   of the
wronir are confined to   themselves     MUBIO lkhhons. - on pinno  orgi*.*

NEW PLAY HOUSE
NELSON  OPERA   HOUSE
LAST NIGHT*
OPENED
The All Star Company Gave  a Pleasing
Performance   Inoluding Features
of a Varied Nature*
Last night the first performance
of tlie All Star English Specialty
Co. took place in the new Nelson
Opera House before an appreciative audience. The opening of this
theatre,although not qnite finished,
will fill a want Ion*,' felt by the
people of Nelson, as it will be available not only for theatricals and
concerts,but the hall has a specially
laid floor for dancing and is to have
a complete heating and electric
lighting apparatus.
11 is expected that the finishing
touches to the interior decoration
will be completed about the end of
March and Nelson should then have
the smartest and brightest theatre
in the Kootenay.
li is difficult to judge at present
how the interior of the theatre will
look on completion, owing- to the
unfinished state and the hurry in
which it has been prepared for the
present performance, but the architecture is highly artistic. The management has furnished the body of
tlie theatre with comfortable chairs
and the seating in the gallery is
arranged so that everybody can get
atho roughly good view of the stage.
Careful arrangements have been
made against tire and the house is
provided with three emergency
exits. The scenery and curtains
are now being painted and will
shortly be ready for use.
Several engagements are already
made with well known traveling
theatrical companies. The stage is
of sufficient size to allow of a large
production and no doubt residents
of Nelson will shortly be able lo
witness some first class performances of all the leading operas.
The performance last night,
which seemed to be thoroughly
appreciated, was of a large and
varied description. The "Cake
Walk," as rendered by six young
ladies, was decidedly good. Mr.
Evans next appeared and sang
several ballads and was followed
by the Mannette family, who gave a
very clever and interesting acrobatic
entertainment. Mrs. Lisle sang
several pleasing songs and the
Bowery dance elicted a beany encore. Gazolas, the contortionist,
gave a most terrible and wonderful exhibition and tied himself into
all sorts of inconceivable knots.
Mr.Evans next amused the audience
with his coon sang "My Honolulu
Lady" and some clever negro dialect, after which the Peri sisters
gave the Hungarian National dance
with great charm and effect.
The Leondor brothers with their
impersonation of ancient and
modern statuary were most impressive and the Langford sisters, with
their two songs, scored a marked
success. A farce entitled "A Tramp
Abroad" concluded this long and
interesting performance and included
some clever acrobatic feats by the
Rexcinoes. The company announced that they will play every
night this week and The Miner is
desired to announce that tonight
the results of the election will be
announced from the stage as they
are received.
Everyday this week the carpen
ters will be busy on the building so
the condition of the house will show
an improvement each night. The
managers were under contract to
open the house this week and when
the company was given the date it
was confidently expected that the
house would lie completed. The
cold snap last month, however, seriously delayed work and there was
nothing for it but to open in the
present uncompleted condition,

HOSPITAL CARNIVAL
A Splendid List of Prizes for Different Costumes.
The members oc the Ladies Hospital Aid Society are leaving no
stone unturned to assure the success
of the big charily carnival lo be
given in the Crystal rink on Wednesday evening. At a meeting of
the society yesterday all arrangements were completed. Tickets tire
in the hands of energetic workers
and are being sold as rapidly as the
most sanguine could expect. The
decision of the ladies to allow everyone to skate,except when the prizes
are being awarded, is a popular
move and one that is greatly appreciated. Busses will run from the
comer of Baker and Stanley streets
to the rink and it is expected that
the ladies will be able to make exceptionally good provision for the
transportation of the public up the
hill.
The merchants of the city have
been very generous in donating
prizes and the list has been revised
since last published in the Miner. It
is now as follows:

Mr. M. E. Maloney, representing
the Provision Supply Co., of
Montreal, is in Nelson.
The Sandon curling bonspiel has
been postponed for one week, and
will be held Tuesday, Wednesday
and Thursday, 21st, 22 and 23rd.
Mr. S. J.   Mightou  retiirr-ed  Sunday
from ti trip over the   ('row's   Neat  Pass
oatl, where he  found  business  fairly
prosperous and disposed ot a   number of
cigars.
Last week some 160 visitors
availed themselves of the advantages
of the reading- rooms of the public
library. A large shipment of books
lor the library is on its way from
Toronto.
Another effort Is bein** made to pur-
suade the   Victoria   Hockey    Club   of
Rossland to piny her*. TheNelson team
has visiled Hossland and they think
It would be quite io order for the Vic-
t irias to play here.
The offloers of the Hall .Mines smelter
1 and received word yestrrday tbat theii
i istrumeuts would not be shipped from
Toronto until the 14th or loth inst. The
I* lay has been caused because of the
'not that two ot the iistruments were
not in stock.
A. copy of the Daily Miner, stamped,
and addressed to David Griffiths,
Knotenay, IJ. 0,, has been returned to
the Miner office for better direction.
It was not sent from this office. The
person posting it iti notified thut the
panel- is now lying at this office.
Some ladies hats of huge dimensions completely hid a view of the
stage from many who were present
at the Opera house last evening. It
is hard lo understand why such
headgear is ever worn lo a theatre
and it is to be hoped that tbe ladies
of Nelson will not contract this habit, which has nothing to commend
it.
A "Christian Men's club" has
been organized in the city for the
purpose of conducting a boarding
house or hotel. The residence of J.
Green, near the Eire Hall, has been
leased and 15 young men have
taken charge of it. The oflicars of
ihe club are, President, Steven
Ward; Secretary and Treasurer, J.
W. Seal.
Mr. D. B. Bogle, of Rossland, who
is at present, in Nelson, received tbe
pleasing Inform at lou by wire yesterday that there has been a rich strike
on hiB mine, thn Victory Triumph.
Three sample assays of the ore struck

and iho property is very promising.
An indignant citizen, when approached by the pound keeper for
lhe price of a dog lag, threatened lo
k lock all the teeth of that dignatory
down his throat. The pound man
promptly had the belligerent citizen
summoned and yesterday he was
lined $5 for harboring a dog without a license. Other prosecutions
arc to follow if a good many dog-
owners are not soon enrolled on the
list of those who have paid up.
DREYFUS  REFUSES

London, Feb 13���The Daily Telegraph publishes the following de-
patch from Cayenne, Capital of
French Guiana: "The judicial officer, who has jusl returned here from
a visit to Dreyfus on the 'He Du

WELL KNOWN MAN DKAD.
Toronto, Feb. lll.-H. B. Hughes,
a well known morcliant, in former
yearF, liittorly a dork nt. Osgoodo Hall,
died this morning after a short illness,
aged about 8fi years. Ho louvos n
widow und grown up family. Do-
oobroiI wns a lendii 1: niembor of the
Unman Uatholic ohuroh,
GENTLEMEN���Thn seat for this
Riding being again vacant, by the resignation of tho Hon. ,T. Frod Hume,
at the earnest request of a largo number of tho electors of this constituency,
I offer myself as a candidate to represent you in the Legislative Assembly.
I advocated in my last candidature,
aud still propose to support, tbe building of useful roads, trails, and bridges,
in tho District, and was pleased to see
last year tho commencement -of some
public works of that nature, I regret
to find that practically all such improvements in this Hiding wore
stopped upon tho acceptance of office
by tho Hon. Mr.Hume. With regard to
publio buildings, appropriations woro
made last session tor additional School
accommodation, ami a Land Registry
Office iu Nolson. As to tho former
the sum voted has boon expended in
a dilatory manner, greatly inconveniencing tho Trustees, teaching stati and pupils. Ah to tho latter no attempt bas
been made to supply tho grave want.
It may be remarked thnt when ill Opposition the Hon. Mr. Hume streuously
pointed out. the inconvenience of having to register all documents affecting land in Yictoria, and advocated
the building of the office iu Nolson.
I submit that the legislation already
passed during the present sitting of
the Provincial Honso of Assembly is
against tho interest of our mining industry. The Alien Bill prohibiting
aliens from working in the placer
mines of tho Province is even now bav-
iug a retarding effect on tbe development of our metalliferous mines. It is
interpreted ns the introduction of tho
thin edge of tbo wedge, towards, prob-
bly next session, introducing legislation to prohibit aliens from prospecting and developing tbo mineral resources of Kootenay T may add that
tbo miners of Kootonay view with
alarm any radical changes in tho mining laws as calculated to prevent the
introduction of capital, thereby con
tvacting tbo field of labor.
Tho privilege formerly existing of a
free miner who had inadvertently al
lowed his license to lapse, being reinstated in his rights upon the payment of a small fee, was heartily endorsed by me; and tbo withdrawal of
ibis privilege by the Minister of Mines
was an arbitrary act which has already resulted in loss to miners, prospectors and others, and is calculator!
in tho future to oporato disastrously
to those interested in mining.
I am opposed to tho hasty passage of
mining legislation without giving the
mining communities tho opportunity
of considering such measures. Snob
hasty procedure is unusual in this Province aud detrimental to the best interests of our groat mining industries.
t consider tho parsimonious administration of public affairs inaugurated
by tho present government, is calculated to seriously endanger the ofliconcy
of tho civil service and hamper Iho
transaction .of public business.
I advocate a change in tlm mineral
act to compel all partners ill a mining
clniin lo bear their share of Iho assessment   work, or forfeit their inter-

Pittsburg, Pa., Feb, 13.���An accommodation train of the Pittsburg and
Lalte Erie railway which left Cleveland
at S:.'JU a, ni, was wrecked this afternoon near Fleming Park, opposite Davis Island. The fireman, W. A. Campbell was injured so badly that he died
and 17 passengers were badly injured.
The wreck was caused by a broken
rail. The train was running at a high
rate of speed'and the, locomotive and
several cars were badly damaged. It
is presumed that the broken rail was
one of the effects of the extreme cold.

Writing principally of the Boundary
district, the correspondent of The Fin
ancial Times, London, says:   "A good
many minors went to  Kloiulyke  from
the Kettle River mining district,   but
returned to British Columbia,   prefer-
ing the Blow quartz mining to   taking
chances in the frozen   North,   which,
after the   excitement,   only   produced
17,000,000 instead of the $20,000,000 as
some of the Canadian Government officials predicted would   be   the   output
for the season.    They will have to use
the pick and shovel a good many years
at the present rate of production before
the results will come up   to   tbe   California and Cariboo yields.  The southern part of British Columbia will outrival all these fields at the   rate   it   is
proceeding.     The   prospects   of    the
Kootenay country are very   bright  for
the future.    It is only in   its   infancy
as yet, the   lowest   level   attained   in
British Columbia being only   a   little
over 800 ft. deep.    There have been  a
great many mineral claims discovered,
and some of them only await the  capitalist to open and develop  them   intc
miues.    The prospectors vv ill find these
mines are not able to develop them beyond   the   annual    assessment    work
which tho law entails.    *   *   *   Placer mining is carried on successfully on
many of the streams, and  purtieularh
on Rock Creek,   which   empties   into
tbe Kettle River   and   Salmon   River
country.    Dr. Dawson states thut since
the (irst discoveries in British  Columbia that   country   has,   from   alluvial
placer mining alouo, added $80,000,000
to the world's supply   of   gold.    What
tlio future  of   this   remarkable  camp
will be no one can  yet  foretoll.    The
surrounding   mountains   ull   seem   to
contain oro. The region has heen little
studied either by tho professional geologist or tho mining geological expert.
At present scarcely a week passes  but
new strikes and discoveries  aro   made
that, seem to promise as well or   better
than those already   found.    They   are
not confined to the one or two already
successful mines.    Un for Innately,   the
prospector is usually a person  of   lini-
itod moans, and capital must bo called
to his assistance,   A oommQp  method
is to bond the mine.    This,   in   brief,
is to sell for a given sum au option on
the property for  a   specified   time,   a
small percentage in   cash   being   paid
down.    Tbo party or syndicate  taking
tbe bond usually has tho   privilege   of
developing the property   in   order   to
determine its   value.    If   expectations
aro realised, tho sale is completed, and
tho discoverer reaps hiH reward.
VALUABLE CONCESSION.
England's Position at Perim Weakened
by Italy and France.
London, Feb. 13���Italy aud France,
says the Rome correspondent of tbe
Daily Mail, have agreed to share possession of Cape Dumeira, on the Rnheita
ooast, at tbe southern extremity of tbe

will fortify her portion of the cape. In
the opinion of the correspondent, the
British fortifications at Perim, iu the
Strait of Babel-Mandeb, at the entrance
*f tbe Red Sea, opposite tbe Bnheita
'���oust, will lose much of their stragetio
mine by this concession to the French
Government.
