SCHEMA TO BD-LD
A ROM) TO BUM
Another Inducement to Possible Residents.
OUTLINE OF THE PLAN
Property Owners Alornr the Shore of the
Lake Will Help in tho Construction*
A determined effort is at last being
made to provide Nelaon with nn ovitH'i
for excursionists, oyolists and equestrians. The one and the only drawback
to Nelson as a desirable place of residence has boon that in the past there
was no place outside tbe City to which
one could conveniently ride or drive.
Tbe lake is always au unfailing resource, but there are many who prefer
land to water locomotion. This stale
of affairs, however, will soon bo a
thing of the past. The citizens of Nelson are waking up to the possibilities
of the shores of onr beautiful lake.
The good work bas begun in tho sbapo
of the cycle path for which money
is uow Doing raised. It will be remembered that the Oity Oouncil donated $300, and Dr. Doolittle raised $150
by meaus of a theatrical performance.
This was a good start* and the subscription list is still open for private
donations. Theso latter are coming
in, though not quite so plentifully as
the object deserves.
Another and moro extensive project
is now on foot, and is quietly and
unostentatiously being pushed along.
This is nothing less than a wagon
road to Balfour. Tho soheine may
come as a surprise to many bnt it is
porfeetlv feasible, and the engineering difficulties aro not nonrly so great
as many seem to suppose. The idea appears to have originated with lhe owners of land on the other side of tbo
lako, and is in brief a wagon road
along the north side of the lake from
Balfour to a point opposite Roberts'
raueh. A ferry would be put in there.
and the road would there connect with
the cycle path Whioh is now being
built. There is already a road of sorts
from hern to Roberts' ranch, and a
little money wonld put it in irood
shapo. Tho various people who have
taken un land through which the road
would go havo expressed their willingness to build portions of the road
that lie on thoir land at thoir own
expense, nud tbey have petitioned
the Governmeut for an appropriation
of $1200 a mile for the intervening
parts. A grent deal of land has been
taken up bv settlers along the lake.
and probably only about eight or
nine miles would have to be built at
public expense. Mr. Busk, of "Kokanee Oreek, is interesting himself very
much in the matter, and. it is understood, is willing to aid substantially
in the work. Mr. Uoborts bas offered
to give as much of tbo lako front as is
neeessarv for tho ferry, and also to
build at'his own expense that part of
the road which passes through his
place, connecting the ferry with the
road to town.
That is thn shape in which tbe
matter stands at present, though nnfor-
tuately it is doubtful whether tho
Goverment, will voto the necessary
monoy unless pros-sure is brought to
bear. ' If the matter is taken np bv the
citizens nt large, that pressure can he
brought to bear, and the road would
soon bo an accomplished tact. Tbey
should do more. They should go down
into their pockets and contribute something themselves. Ml classes should
contribute, as such a road would ho a
grent boon to all. Thoso who have
not taken tho trip havo no idea ol the
beauties of tho lako between there
nnd tho Outlet, nnd n drive or ride
along a decent road on a warm summer evening wonld bo ideal, a treat
which no other Oity in tho Kootenays
could afford with any expenditure nf
money. Suoh a road would do more to
render Nelson attractive to intending
residents, than nny inducement which
could be held out to them. It wonld
be of use nil the vear rouud.fnr in winter it would mnke oxcellent sleighing If the citizens tako tbe matter
up nnd seo it through, they will do a
good piece of work both for Nelson and
themselves individually which in after years thoy will never cease to congratulate themselves upon.
HOW   DAWSON    OITY   BURNED.
A Detailed Account Given of tho Dis-
nstrous Fire.
A Victorin despntch to the Spokes-
raan-Review gives the following account of the fire at. Dawson: lho
main portion of the city of Dawson
wns destroyed by firo on April 88.
fusing a'loss of $4,000.01.0. In a 1
111 buildings, including the Bank ri
British North Amotion, wero burned.
The news was brought down hy 1.
S. Humos, a son of Maym Humes of
Seattle;   J. Toklas, and a third party,
Nelson,  British Columbia,  Tuesday,   >, y 23,   1899.
Ninth Year
Who left Dawson on April 80, and
made tbeir way out by oanoe to Lake
Lebarge and then over tho ice having
a most perilous trip. Toklas reports
thai tlio lire occurred on April 20 in
the vory heart of the busiuess oeuter
of the city, oommenoing near the
opera house ami spreading with unusual rapidity. It was driven by a
strong north wind, destroying everything in lis way on thai street down
in and includiug Donahue -.v Smith's
establishment.
Tin* tiro then look in all of tbo water
front buildings abreast of tho same
blocks, it crossed tbo street, burned
through and spread over to Beoond
stroet, oovering the principal business
portion of Dawson, leaving it all in
ashes, with the firemen helpless and
powerless to do anytbing, Tlio lire
consumed tbo Pair View hotel, tho
buildings being as dry as tinder, The
flames spread with such rapidity thnt
iho oitizens appealec" pauio-striokon
and unable to save anything in the
way of furniture, goods and   clothing.
Among tlio most prominent firms
burned out were the Hank of British
North Ainciica, tho Canada Bank of
Commerce, the MoOlellan iV Feeley of
Victoria, Vancouver and Dawson, the
Parsons Produce Oompany, of Winnipeg ; Royal Cafe, Donahue & Smith,
the Aurora saloon, the Bodega, the
Madden house, the Victoria bold, the
McDonald blook and the California
Exchange Tbo lire was caused by a
drunken woman upsetting a lamp in
i'. notorious bouse. None of tbe big
warehouses of the Alaska Commercial
nor ibe Northern American Trading
Company were touched by the tiro so
there will be no shortage of provisions
oven if the lakes should not open before the middle of .Tune, which is now
piedic-lc.l.
The heaviest losers bv tbe firo are
MoLellan St Focloy, who had an immense stock of iron and tinware aud
miners' supplies taken iii at heavy
expense, and the Bank of British
North America, whoso rather flimsy
vault did not withstand tbo beat, the
papers in it being destroyed. Tb"
bank List alio a largo amount of gold
dust. A rough estimate places tbe loss
in gold aud naper money alone at $1.-
000,000. Altogether the burned area
comprises quite throe-quarters of the
area of Dawson
In tbeir trip out tbo three couriers
wero forced to every expedient���walking, run,ii"g with the dogs, swimming for life on two occasions and
breaking through the ico repeatedly.
Thoy passsed tho river steamer Flora
cutting her way through tbo ice with
the sreol prow at Hootalinqna ami
found the telegraph wire to Skagway
completed at Cariboo crossing, 76
miles inland. From hero Humes nnd
Riley pn to Ottawa, tbeir companion
having been dropped at Bennett.
A loiter which was brought out by
tbo courageous messengers notes tbat
beforo the ashes of tho bank bad bad
time to cool men wero working on the
spot with rockers, there being a good
probability that muoh of tho lost gold
will bo recovered in tbis manner.
BRINGS   BLUSHES
DOES
CUSTOMS   INSPECTION   OT
LADIES' UNDERWEAF,
J. W. Einalley Denounces the Law���Imputations ol Bribery Are
Confirmed.
London, May 2*!.��� Mr. Geo. \V.
Smalley, the New York correspondent
of Tbe. Times, continues to denounce
the methods of 1)10 custom bouse inspectors at tho port of New York. He
says this morniug:
"Americans returning from Europe
aro still treated as intentional smugglers. Mr. Dingley's personal luggage limit is yet unrepealed and Amor
lean women must still explaiu the cost
of their underclothing, point out in
which trunk it is to bo found and
stand by while corsets and chemises
nro valued. There may have been
somo relaxation m the vigor of the inspection, but tho system continues in
foroe bringing blushes not only to the
cheeks of American women, but all
Americans who care for tbe good of
the country. Tbe imputation of bribery is confirmed by the dismissals
Only by paying the inspector can the
returning New Yorker escape insult
and outrage nt tbe custom honso, nnd
not always Iben."
THEY       AVOIDED     THE       TAX

ova Oaridari at El Oobre, bad been

Questions  of Beduction of Armaments
Belegated to Background���Programme as Arranged*
Tho Hague, May 22.���Mr. Andrew
D. White, head of tho Amerioan
delegation, in an interview hero with
a representative of tbe Associated Press
said be regarded tbo situation as promising, and, that the first work of organization was we'll  dono.    He added :
"I am full of hope that it will be
nossihle to reach a practical conclusion. The scepticism of the first few
days must yiold to serious hope with
out at tbe same time indulging tn exaggerated expectations, The words of
Emperor William havo contributed to
improve the situation. I thiuk wo
may arrive at some results on the
subject of mediation and arbitration,
although it is undoubtedly impossible
to make such action obligatory, it can
bo rendered at least optional, aud 1 believe that after tbe conference the powers will reeoguizo that they havo at
tbeir disposal a meaus of regulating
their differences otherwise than by
war. That will tie au immense advantage. I am also confident thnt important improvements will be aobieved
in the laws and usages of war, thus
humanizing war, especially iu extending to naval buttles tho Geneva convention of 1888. As to the reduction of
armaments, I am not in a position to
speak on tho subject."
Other ambassadors who aro delegates
to the Conference were also interviewed aud expressd similar views. They
said they wtre most hopeful tbat the
deliberations of tbe conference would
result in the adoption of a practical
recommendation tending towards
peace and rendering war far more
liuniauo. All wore dominated by a
sense of immense responsibility to
aohieve something, especially in the
direction of arbitration. Tbo delegate*!
wero unanimously of the opinion that
the question of the reduction of armaments would bo the most dillicult to
meet and they believed tbat it would
be relegated to tbo rear of tho other
two features, especially since tho special object of the conference is now acknowledged to be an endeavor to establish means for tbe solving of international difficulties without resort to
war, thus increasing tbe rarity of w-ais,
and as a natural   consequence   leading
to a roductiou  of armaments.   They
seemed convinced, however, that numerous difficulties of detail would arise
111 the various committees and that
tho conference would ho protracted.
After nn nctive exebnnge of views
during tho last 2-1 hours, the chiefs of
various delegations arrived this evening at an agreement regarding tho selection of the presidents of tbe various
committees, This agreement will bo
communicated to tbe delegates who
have been summoned to meet iu plenary session in the Hnis Ten Bosch at
noon tomorrow for tho sole purpose of
formnllj confirming tlio agreement,
Tho mooting of tho disarmament
committee has been postponed to -1
o'clock tomorrow afternoon.

through it. However the oompany
proved itself to be considerably Strong! r

A   SHIPPING   DISASTER.
involve  the expenditure  of more than  i^oli'i-ubli*
a few thousand dollars   at most.    Because they do uot cost a million  each,      a    correspondent    at  Washington
and give employment  to   a  thousand  who gives tho impression   thnt   he  is
hands, the   eleotors   should   refuse   to  well informed, says  that  the author!-
vote   the    franchises.     This   is    the  ties there have it in   contemplatim   to
arrantest kind of  nonsense.    What the . raise the duty on  Canadian lumber to
electors have to deoide first is whether . four dollars per thousand, and possibly
they desir3 to have a  tramway system J six.    This would havo been done some
introduced into the City, and to  have j time ago but for  the  reluctance of the
gas works   established.    As   these are  Secretary of State to engage in retalia-
desirable things   in    themselves, they | tion. The   failure of thu Ontario Gov-
will probably conclude   to   give  their ernment, however,   to  relax  thoir invoice   in   favor   of   them.   Tben  the
question    arises,     are   we   asked   to
make concessions out of proportion   to
the benefits   expected?   If   not,   there
cau be no reason why both  franchises
should not be voted.    It is not a question  of   expenditure,   or   of  employment.   A   tramway   cannot   be  built
without money, and no   one   is  crazy
enough to suppose   that   more  money
will be expended on it   than is   necessary for its   construction   and   equip
ment.    Those   at the back of  it   will
have to build the road before they can
have it, whether it costs fifty thousand
or   two  hundred   thousand; and  the
electors are not so unreasonable   as  to
demand   of   them that they shall   put
more mouey into it   than is required.
What the   people   want is a tramway,
with tbe accommodation it will afford
and the distinction it  will give to the
Oity;  the  question   of   its   cost  is a
matter for those who are providing it.
The same with tbe gas works. The
Miner does not pretend to know how
many men there are likely to be employed, nor is it at all essential that tho
number should be ascertained. Nor
does it know the amount of capital that
will be required to establish the works,
although in the bylaw itself it is expressly stated that the company shall
expend |100,000 within two years or
forfeit their rights under the charter.
That should be sufficient on that
point. But here again it is not so
muoh a question of expenditure and
employment an of publio convenience.
Do the citizens think it would be a
desirable thing to have the choice of
gas as an alternative light? If they
do they will vote for tbo bylaw,
especially as they are not culled
upon to pay anything for the privilege. With the choice of lights, how
ever, they get several other advan
tages. They get the establishment of
what promises to be a large coking
industry. Whether this will employ
two men or two hundred men is a mat
ter of littlo concern to any but the
company; whatever the number neces
sary to establish and operate the
works they will have to provide, and
more oannot be expected of them.
There will also be a supply of gas for
oooking purposes, no small considera
tion during the summer months in a
oommnnity that pays dearly for its
fuel, and a supply for motive power.
These are great conveniences, and no
one will deny that it is an advantage
to possess them. It is costing the
Citv nothing to have these conven
ienoes provided, and those who do not
use them will bave nothing to pay.
Under these conditions we should be
acting very foolishly If we refused tbe
franchise.
As to tbe franchises themselves, all
that need be said is that it is necessary to vote them if we are to have a
tramway and gas works. That is the
invariable condition in such oases.
Companies do not go around building
t rum ways and establishing gas works
without the protection of an exclusive
franohise for a term of years. In this
regard, nothing is being asked of
Nelson that is not conoaded everywhere
else. It takes a lot of money to establish enterprises of the kind, and although the protection in a sense constitutes them a monopoly the municipal authorities are expected to exact
conditions that will prevent the
monopoly from becoming burdensome.
Withont the protection no one would
undertake them. That is the rulo
everywhere, and it is only childish to
quarrel with it.

Resigns His Position on the
Finance Oommittee.
BANK QUESTION AGAIN
Alii- Hillyer Wisliod to Resign, But tlie
Aldeiinen Wouldn't Let llim- Pounder More Successful.
At the meeting of the Oity Oounoil
lust evening Aid.Hillyer made a determined but unsuccessful effort to to-
sicn his sent. His business, he suid,
had grown to such un extent thnt he
hud no time to devote to tbe City's
affairs, nnd us he could not give his
constituents the attention they deserved bo wished to be relieved of his
olliee to mike way for another ninu
who could do tho work better. But it
happens that Aid. Hillyer has been a
particularly good Alderman nnd his associates at the board appreciate this, so
they referred the letter of resignation
to Aid. Hillyer wbo will go into committee of the whole on it for A couple
of weeks nnd give his linal answer nl
tbe next meeting of Oounoil,
Thore wns another resignation,
This time it was that of Aid. Beer
from tho position of chairman of the
Finance Committee. It grew ont of
the banking question that raised snch
a fuss n few weeks ngo. It will ho remembered thnt tbo four hunks rnpie
sented by branches in the Cily tendered for the City's account. Tho tender
of the Bank of Halifax wns *1 per cent
on debentures nccount nnd b'., percent.
on overdraft, while the three other
bunks quoted li per cent on debenture
account nud II per cent, on overdraft.
The ICinnnce Committee recommended
the ncceptniice of the Bonk of Halifax
tender ns being the most advantageous, Council adopted thn report but
hirer the Mayor vetoed it. Borne meet
iugs remarkable for the manner i"n
which business wns transacted, took
plaoe, but the mutter remained as it
wns after the Mayor's vetn. Last
night Aid. Beer decided to bring the
matter to nn issue nud moved that the
nccount ho trnnsfeired to the Ihiuk of
Halifax He stated that the failure of
the Council to adopt the unanimous report of the Finance Committee practically amounted to n vote of want of
confidence, nnd if the motion did not
cmry he did nnt seo any otber way
clour to him except to resicn his position as ebninnnn of Finance. Discussion on the motion brought out the surprising fact that uow the Bank of
Montreul wns giving better rates to the
City than tnat mentioned in their tender. Their tender quoted, on debenture account, ii per cent, und now tho
Oity is getting b per cent, ou that account. Tbis wus arranged without
any reference to Aid. Beer uud mndo
him the more indignant. He characterized such a transaction us a "catchpenny'- affair, und expressed the grimiest surprise that a reputable bauk
would resort to such a measure to retain an ncaonnt, To quote 3 per cent
and then ullow 6 per eent after another bank had quoted 4 per cent.,
Aid. Beer thought wns a peculiar way
of doing business. He thnnht tlie
Council would act honorably In accepting tho best tender nud not the figures
that were offered after lho tender of
a rival bunk was made public. As
there was nt) seconder to his motion he
resigned bis position ns chairman of
Finance. To n Miner reporter nfler
the meeting Aid Beer stated thnt he
would no longer act, ns chairman of lhe
committee, 'the bank account question rested entirely with the Finanoe
Committee nnd ns it had been arranged without reference to hiui und ulso
arranged in such a peculiar wny, ho
felt thnt as bono longer had the support
of the Council it wns not right for
him to retain oltice to bundle the $10,**
000 that the Council expected to raise
by the by-laws to bo voted on next
Monday. \ud thus the matter Btands,
All the Aldermen were present ut
tbe mooting.
After reading the minutes of tho lust
regular und several subsequent specinl
meetings of the Council Iho following
report from the special committee composed of Aid. Thomson, Hillyer nnd
Kirkpatrick, wns rend:
"Your committee on the Enst End
of Bnker street question beg to report
after having carefully considered the
mntter thnt they deem it advisable
that the Council give the women in
question four (4) months notice to
vacate that part of tbe City, and your
committee further strongly recommend
that measures be taken whereby this
olass of society be kept ns much as possible in one locality ns otherwise their
removal from the present plncc would
be of little object."
I" Aid. McKillop suggested that the
matter be loft over as thero were oilier
considerations to be taken into nccount. A motion to this effect carried.
The Finance Committee recommended the payment of civic payrolls and a
few  accounts.
The Board of Works reportod on the
work doue at their Inst meeting, nlrendy reported in The Miner. Aid.
Beer did uot think thnt, nny money
should be spent in tbe openiug of Poplar street to the Sampling works until tho money bylaws wero voted on
next Monday. In course of thn discussion Aid. Fletcher said that if the
ratepayers did not carry the bylaws,
money would hnvo to be raised by in-
orensod taxation ns there wns n greut,
���deal of work thnt it was neeessary to
carrv on at once.
Oity Engineer   McCulloch   reported
that it would take $1,000 to refloor tho,
Oity  wharf.    This  sum   would   only |
tawnnTaru imnrnvpmpnt. and ther*.   .
I
wus  considerable    other
should lie done on it.
The following    letter fr
Onrtur Cotton, wns rend i
"I have tho honor to Inform yon
that the Government of British Columbia is prepared to hand over to you
the wharf at tbe City of Nelson, ns it,
is not the intention of tho Government
to maintain pablio wharves in munici- I
pnlities, If lhe Council does not see
tit to accept Ibis whnrl it will be neces*
sury, to avoid accidents, io remove (he
flooring and close the wharf at once."
The matter ws allowd to sland   tin
til niter the money bv-laws ure voted
nn, us the Oonncil  will not be able to
siii'iul money on il    unless  Ibe   bylaws
cany. I
Another letter regarding the*
expropriation of some of the lots used
hy lho reservoir from Nelson Olty {
I.und nnd Improvement Oo , wus rend.
It wus from the Company's solicitors!
nu 1 expressed the desire of the com-
puny to get everything in sight. It
wus claimed that the Oity hud damaged the lols to the extent, of fabulous
sums, fur ull   of which lho Oity    WUS,
asked to payor stand tho Inconvenience of ii law suit.
Aid. Fletcher snid that it wus n'
blackinnil. The damage to (he lots j
was assessed ut $0,460, which wus scv- *
Oral times more than tney were worth.
Aid. Thomson thought that the,
offer of J7S0 of the late Council wns a |
very liberal offer.
This very nervy epistle wns referred
to tbe Oity solicitor who will worry
with it.
H. Marpole. of the O, P. R. wrote

Immediately appointed to prefect the
struggling gardens,
The question  wns left to the Mayor
with tho recnnimend.itinii thnt a

Aid. Thomson snid thnt a couple of
enrrots could cntoh nil the mules in

O. W. West wrote regarding opening a rond through the Park. As the
City bus no deed to tl.o Pui'k yet the
matter wus left over.
A lurge number of Bnker si rout
merohauts wrote asking for a reduction
in electric light rates during four summer months when lights were used
but once a week. Aid. Beer suggested that there should be a winter and
summer rate. The petition was le-
ferred to the Finnnce Oommittee,
Ten members of the firo brigade
were granted leave of absence for tho
2-1'll of May to go to New Denver to

Mr, W. Rutherford and Mr. J. H.
Wallace, representing the trustees of
the   Methodist   church, addressed   the
meeting asking that sewerage oonneo-
tinn he given to the Methodist parsonage. This mntter wns also left over for
a week.
Aid. Hillyer wrote asking tho Conn-
cil to accept his resignation as alder
man. In Bupport of his letter Aid
Hillyer snid thnt his business required
his entire attention, und he found it
impossible to give proper attention lo
both bis own business and   Ibe Citv's.
The Mayor said that Aid. Hillyer
hnd given the City good service nnd
that the Council would bo sorry to lose
liim. All tho Aldermen pressed Aid.
Hillyer to reconsider his determination us he wns n very valuable member
of the Oounoil,
It wus moved hy Alii. Fletoher nnd
Aid. Beer that Aid. Hillyer be asked
to reoonsider his letter nud give his

AID BEER
. LODGER CHAIRMAN
Resigns His Position on tho
Finance Committee.
BANK QUESTION AGAIN
Hon.   I'
Alii* Hillyer Wisliod to Resign, But the
AkUmeu Wouldn't Let Him   Pound-
keeper More Successful.
At the meeting of the  Oity   Oouncil
last evening Aid.Hillyer made a determined but unsuccessful effort to resign hfs seat. His business, he snid,
hud grown to such nn extent that he
bnd uo time to devote to tho Oity's
affairs, and as bo could not give his
constituents the attention they deserved ho wished to he relieved of his
offioe to make wny for [mother mnu
who oould do the work better. Kut it
happens thut Aid. Hillyer bus benn a
particularly good Alderman nnd bis associates nt the bonrd appreciate tbis, so
thoy referred the letter of resignation
to Aid. Hillyer wbo will go into committee of tbo whole on it for ,1 couple
of weeks nnd dive bis final answer at
tbe next meeting of Oouncil.
Thoro was another resignation,
This time it* wus thnt of Aid. Beer
from the position of chnirninn of tbe
Finanoe Committee It grew out of
tbo bunking question that raised such
a fuss a few weeks ai*o. It will bo ro-
membered thnt tbo four banks repre
sonted by branches in the City tend* r-
ed for tbe City's account. Tho tender
of the Bank of Hulifnx wns 1 per cent
on debentures nccount and bi., percent.
on overdrnft, while tho three other
bnnks quoted !i per ceut on debenture
acoouut and (i per cent, on overdrnft.
The Finnnce Oommittee recommended
the acceptance of tbe Bank of Halifax
tender ns being tho most advantageous, Council adopted tho report but
later the Mayor vetoed it. Bonio meet
iugs remarkable for tho manner fn
which business was transacted, took
plaoe, but the matter remained ns it
was nfter the Mayor's veto. Last
night Aid. Boer deoided to bring the
matter to an issuo and moved thnt the
account be transferred to the Hank of
Halifax He stated tbat the failure of
the Council to adopt the unanimous report of the Finance Oommittee practically amounted to a voto of want of
confidence, and if tho motion did not
cmry ho did not see any other way
clear to him except to resiyn his position as chairman of Finance, Discussion on the motion brought out tho surprising faot thnt uow the Hank of
Montreal was giving hotter rates to the
Oity than tnat mentioned iu their tender. Their tender quoted, on debenture account, ii per cent, and now tho
City is getting 5 per cent, ou that account. This was arranged without
any reference to Aid. Beer and made
him tbe moro Indignant. He characterized such a transaction us u " enroll-
penny'- affair, and expressed the greatest surprise that a reputable bink
would resort to such a measure to retain an nccount. To quote 8 per com
and then allow 5 per cent after another bunk hnd quoted 4 percent.,
Aid. Beer thought wns a peculiar way
of doing business. He thonbt the
Oouncil would net honorably iu aooept-
ing tho best tender and not the figures
that were offered afttr the fender of
a rival bnnk wns made public. As
thero was nf) seconder to his motion he
resigned his position as ehiiiiuian of
Finance. To n Minor reporter after
tho meeting Aid Beer stated Hint he
would no longer act. ns chairman of the
oommittee. 'Che bunk account question rested entirely with tbe Finauce
Oommittee nnd us it had been arranged without reference to biu, and also
arranged in such a peonliar way, ho
felt that as ho no longer hud tbe support
of tbe Council it wus not right for
him to retain oltice to handle tho SiO, -
000 that the Council expected to raise
by the by-lnws to bo voted on next
Monday, -\iiil thus the matter stands.
All the Aldermen were present at
tho mooting.
After reading the minutes of the lust
regular and several subsequent special
meofings of tho Council tho following
report from the special commit ten composed of Aid. Thomson, Hillyer nnd
Kirkpatrick, wus read :
"Your oommittee on tbo East Bnd
of Baker stroot question beg to report
aftor having carefully considered (ho
matter that tbey doom it advisable
that the Council give the women in
question four (4) months notice to
vncnte that pnrt of tbe City, nnd your
oommittee further strongly recommend
that measures bo token whereby tbis
olass of society be kept as much as possible in one locality us otherwise their
removal from the preseut pluco would
be of little object. "
!*��� Aid. McKillop suggested that the
matter be left over as there were other
considerations to bo taken iuto nccount. A motion to this effect carried.
The Finance Committee recommended the payment of civic payrolls and a
few  accounts.
The Board of Works reported on the
work done at their Inst meeting, nlrendy reported in The Minor. Aid.
Beer did uot think tbat, any money
should bo spent in tho opening of Poplar street to tho .Sampling works until tbo money bylaws woro voted on
next Monday, in conrso of thedisous-
siou Aid. Flotcher snid that if the
ratepayers did not carry tho bylaws,
money would havo to bo raised by in-
orensed taxation ns there wns n grent
deal of work that it was nooessary to
carrv on at once.
Oity Engineer
that it would tako .

be a temporary improvement,and thore : stationed Swiss guides at Banff, Lakes
���w as   considerable    otber
should he dono on it.
The following   letter from
i '.ni* i Ootton,  was lend i
"t novo the honor to inform yon
thnt the Government of British On-
lninbia is pre,Hired to hand over to yon
the wharf at tho Oity of Nelson, ns it
is not the intention of tho Government
to maintain public wharves iii municipalities, If the Onui,eii dues not si e
lit to aouept this whurl il w ill be ueoes*
Snry, to avoid aooideuts, lo remove the
flooring aud close the wharf at once."
The matter ws allowd to stand until nfter tbe money bv-laws urn voted
on. ns the Oouncil will not be able to
spend money on it unless the bylaws
curry.
Another letter regarding tbe
expropriation of some of the lots used
hy tho reservoir from Nelson Oity
Laud und Improvement Oo , was rend.
It was from the Company's solicitors
anil expressed the desire nf Ihe oom-
puny to get everything in sight, ll
wns claimed lliul the Oitv had damaged the lots to the extenf, of fabulous
sums, for all of whioh the Oity was
asked to pay or stun,I the inconvenience of a  law suit.
Aid. Fletcher said that it was a
blackmail. The damage to the lots
was assessed at !?(!,4ii(), which was several times more than tney were worth.
Aid. Thomson thought thnt the
oiler of $750 of tlie late Council was a
very liberal offer.
This very nervy epistle was referred
to the Oity solicitor who will worry
With it.
R, Marpole, of the O, P, R, wrote
regarding the exchange of lots in
Nelson in order to provide recreution
grounds. He paid that, rhe matter
would hnve to] stand {over until Lund
Commissioner Hamilton returned
fr m Europe.
The property owners on Front street
from Ward Io Park petitioned for a
sidewalk, This matter wns nlso left
over until the bylnws were voted ou.
VV A. O'orron wrote neniu resigning
hi** |positlon as poundkeeper ns the
pnsitiou "us not sufficiently remunerative. The resignation was nceepted,
nud ns Aid. Flotohor reported that there
were n whole lot of mules in town it
wns thought that some one should be
immediately   appointed to protect   the
struggling gardens,
Tbo question wns left to tho Mayor
with tho recomnienilatinn thnt a
sprinter should be employed on necnmit
of the difficulty of cntching mules.
Aid. Thomson snid thnt a couple of
enrrots could entch nil tbe mules in
the country. Ho offered to lonn the
now appointee a couple of enrrots.
A lnw hill from Tupper, Peters nnd
Gilmour, of $704.88 growing out of
tbe case nf Arthur vs. Tho City of

work will be proceeded with,
Gnuittle St O'Reilly wrnto offering
tho Oity three lots in tho bottom of

Hows over from tho eleotrio light
dam,for .-$2,000. It wns suggested that
if such lots in Addition A. wero
worth so mnch, it, would be advisable
to raise the assessment on all tho lots
in tbat portion of tho Oity ns those
mentioned for Sv'.noo were assessed at
$600. The mutter wns left to tho
Moyor,
O. W. Wost wrote regarding opening n rond through the Park. As the
Oity bus no deed to tl.o Park yet tho
matter wus left over.
A largo number of Bnker street
merobants wrote asking for a reduction
in electric light rates during four summer months When lights wero used
but once a week. Aid. Beer suggested tbat thoro should bo n winter and
summer rute. Tho petition wns referred to the Finnnce Oommittee.
Ton members of thn Fire brigade
were ernnled leave of absence for tho
24th of May to go to Now Denver to
win the firo brigade trophy.
Residents on tlio oust end ot Carbonate street petitioned for several improvements. The mntter was lnid
nver.
Mr. W. Rutherford nnd Mr. ,T. H,
Wallace, representing the trustees of
tho Methodist church, nildressed the.
meeting nsking that seweinge connection be given to the Methodist parsonage. This matter wns also left over for
a week.
Aid. Hillyer wrote nsking the Council to accept bis resignation as alderman. In support of bis letter Aid.
Hillyer snid that his business required
his eutire attention, and he found it
impossible to give proper attention to
both his own business and   tho Oitv's.
The Mayor said that Aid. Hillyer
hnd given the City good service nnd
that the Oouncil would bn sorry to lose
him. All tbe Aldermen pressed Aid.
Hillyer to reconsider his determination as he wns a very valuable member
of the Oounoil.
It wus moved by Aid. Fletcher nnd
Aid. Beer thnt Aid. Hillyer be asked
to reconsider his letter nnd give his
answer at tho next meeting. Aid.
Hillyer will go into committee of tho
whole and consider the question.
Aid. Beer moved that two weeks
leave of absence be granted to the etii-
oient Oily Engineer Mr, McCulloch.
Arrangements bud been mude to hnve
n temporary engineer to continue the
work nnd the motion was carried.
Aid. Beer brought up tho bunking
question which wus debated at length
with the result outlined above. Tho
Mayor and chairman of Finnnce wero
appointed   a committee  to  interview
the banks and arrange the best terms
for the account, after which tbo meetiug adjourned,

Ymir, B. C., Muy SO.���A wonderful
strike has been made in the tunnel cf
the Spotted Hoise claim owned hy
Hank Noll says the Spokesman-He
view. At about 75 feet from the
mouth of tho tunnel a rich chute of
free milling ore carrying considerable
visible gold was disclosed. Au assay
from a picked specimen Rave a return
Of $10,314.33 in gold per ton, whili|nu
average sample of the rich strike gave
1302,56. -Tho lodge varies iu width
from ubout 13 inches to two feel six
inches. The assay mentioned above,
although of course taken from a picked
sample containing visible chunks of
gold, is the highest over tukeu in this
vicinity.
About 13 tous of concentrate*' are
coining down daily from the Ymir
mill uew, und a large pile is being fl
accumulated al lhe depot. The crude
smelting ore is ulso to be shipped ut
the rato of about 50 tons per week.
T. A. Helm of the Rio Grande Gold
Mining Company is in town toduy
and reports good progress on the property owned by his company. This
property consists of four claims on
Porcupine creek. A fine ledge of concentrating ore seven feet wide bus been
uncovered and followerl by a tunnel
now in 110 feet. The ore consists of
iron pyrites und galena iu a white
quartz matrix. Another tuunel has
beeu driven in 104 feet, crossing the
first lead, and a crosscut is being driven from the breast of this lead to tap a
fine chute of ore in another ledge
which has beeu disclosed in the shaft
sunk to the depth of 2b feet. A recent assay from this shaft guve *?('*0 iu
all values, **30 being in gold, and the
balance iu silver and lead. Besides
those two ledges a further ledge of
Iree^milliug quartz bus been discovered
and work has just been started upon
it.
T. L. Long, P. L. S., who has just
returned from London to take charge
of the Porto Rico iriue, was here this
week for the purpose of letting a contract for 2,000 cords of wood to supply
the Porto Rico mill. The mina will
probably start up again iu three weeks.
Considerable work has been done on
the Chehalis property here. This
group which consists of two full claims
aud a fraction is traversed by three
ledges. A tunnel has beeu driven 80
feet, crosscutting two of theso ledges.
The first ledge varies in width trom
four and-" a half to five feet and has
been further drifted on a distance of
40 feet, disclosing a fine body of galena and iron ore. An average assay
from this vein gave $16 per tou in gold
and silver. The further ledge is about
five feet wide and carries good galena
ore. A surface assay from this ledge
gave $3.50 in gold per ton. The third
ledge, which is a recent discovery, is
well mineralized with iron pyrites and
assays on the surface $40 in gold
per ton.

Beyond these meagre facts, but little
is known. Enquiries revealed the fact!
thut there were thru* equally well authenticated hut absolutely different
descriptions of the burglar extant,
and the police, if they know any thing
about it at ull, ure extremely reticent.
Tho man did not got away with very
much cash, bur secured several
cheques which, cf course, have been
stopped ut the bank. He evidently
effected an entrance through a window
which bud been left open iu the
front of th( house. He does uot appear from the way he went about
things, to have beon a professional
burglar.

A     VERY     NERVY      BURGLAR.
House ou Stanley Street.   Rrokeu   Iuto
Yesterday Morning.
About two o'clock   yesterday morning   the   house   erected   .011   Stanley
street by P. J,    Russell, but now leas- J
ed as a boarding house was broken into.    He got into one   of tho   bedrooms
took   tbe   clothes   of the   sleeper   and i
���went through them. -He thou went into
the landlady's  room and was reaching
over the bed for her pockethook, when '
she awoke. Seeing the mun she scream  I
As the nnnoucemeut has been made
that the Government of British Oolumbla purpose forcing the Amendment
to the Metalliferous Mines Inspection
Act. making eight ho.irs 11 working
day for those employed underground
in metalliferous mines; See. 18.���"Ko
person shall be employed underground
in any metalliferous mine for more
than eight hours in every twenty-four
hours;" the undersigned as representing oue of tho two parties mainly
affected, consider it advisable to make
public their views on the situation
created by this uncalled for legislation,
and to indicate what their line of action must inevitably be.
While the undersigned are determined to respect aud adhere to the laws of
the Province, it may he pointed out
that this law is far "reaching in the
injuries it must inllict upon the mining interests of the Province, aud on
the amount of wages earned bv tbe
men.
It means reducing the hours of labor
in the mines from 20 hours a day to
Hi hours, as m my of the mines are so
circumstanced that three shifts cannot be worked to advantage. This
nif-.ns a reduction of 20 per cent in
tlit, amount of the production of many
im es, and a reduction of 20 per cent
in the development work leing earned 011 in the mines preparing for
production and a reduction in tbe supplies used in tne mii.es.
The   most     amicable   relations   existed, and still exist, between   the em
plovers and employed   at   the   mines.
The men were   earning   good   wages,
eunal to any being paid   in   camps   in
: the United Slates,   and   higher   than
I those -aid in many,and they were rendering good    services for tliese   wages.
I    If anv discontent was rife at the ex-
; isting state nf affairs, it was not generally known. It is therefore deeply
to be regretted that the Legislature
has see lit disturb the existing hai-
inony. to   interfere with tin*   growing
I prosperity  of   the    mining districts.
I to reduce the wages earning power of
the   men employed,   and   to  interfere
j wilh the free light of contract   hitherto rnj yed.
As to   the future,   after   the 1st  of
I Juno next, at the mines rooresented
by the undersigned, tbe standard   rat**
I of wages that will be paid to skilled
miners for nn eight hours working day
will be three dollars (18.00), and other
labor will necessarily bo also paid for
according to the time worked.
