That the construction of the whole

argument, nor could anything else be
expected when ond of the so-called "inspectors" of construction, It. E. Lemon,

fowl nor goud red herring, and never
put pipe together in bis life. If be hud be

ensure their freezing in anyplace whore
frost prevailed in the winter, and tbe engineer in charge should have known
that it requires a very large flume constructed above ground aud a big surplus
of water to operate successfully all the
year round. But then Lemon had to be
found a job and good engineers don't

Tbe following interesting letter, dealing with local affaire, bus been received
by the editor of the Miner.
SmT'It ppears to me thnt tbe voters

in casting their vote at the comiug municipal elections. Iu the first place it
seetuB to me that tbe result of tho litigation between the City nnd Joshua Dnv-
ies, with regard to the land appropriated
by the City for the reservoir aud tliiine,
has been carefully kept from .lie knowledge ot the ratepayers and while the leg

of arresting bun as lie should have dom .
Hut in any esse tin \Iu>o. refunded thi
money lo the City out of his own pock. ,
which I lloiik poises conclusively   llici
must hnve been something rotten   ul	
the whole business. At the genera
election   held  on   July   9th     last,   tin
Mayor's language in the Btreet was more
forcible than polite. The epithets he
used are usually those applied to theniule
offspring of the ciiiiinn men only; in fact,
the language was sufficiently expressive
even to draw from lhe editor of the
Economist the following remarks published in the issue of July 18, 1898.
"Mr. 11 ami) wus unfortunate in this

The article from which the above is

that the Mayiu's manlier is anything but

Irishman is a Championship
MoOoy Had the Best of it at the First,
But Sharkey Made a Strong
Lennox Athletic Club, New York,
Jun. 10.���Tom Sharkey, the American ssiloi'.who first saw light of day in
Dundalk, Ireland, better known
as the "Cap of the North" stands
tonight the only heavy weight possibility for championship honors
against the title now held by Bob Fitz-
simmons. He whipped Kid McCoy
good and hard in the tenth round of
what whe to have been a twenty ronnd
battle and by so ^doing, the Irish-
American pugilist forged his way so
positively and undeniably to the front
r. nk that Fitzimmons must now consider the sailor pugl ist's elaim to meet
him in the ring. Sharkey was a revelation to those who saw him a couple
of years ago. His ring work nnd gen-
era'ship were vastly superior to his
exhibition when he first caine to the
East as a fighter.
McCoy, who came out second in tonight's cmillict, is worthy of unstinted
praise. He began as a welter weight
and fought, his way up to the heavy
weight division. In all his tights up to
tonight McCoy showed that he was
possessed of a degree of ability in fistic
work thnt was unequalled and despite
the fact that he was beaten, and
soundly beaten at that, tonight he is
still the peer of any pugilist that ever
donned a boxing glove, us far as ring
generalship is concerned.
Just before the light bets were being
made at even money, McCoy's see-
Oi ds tonight were "Doc" Payne, Con
Keilly nnd Frank Erne, timekeeper
Nate Fenton of Buffalo.Tom Sharkey's
B6COi.de were: Tom O'Hourke. Tommy
Ryan of Syracuse. George Dixou and
Jack Dougherty. Timekeeper, Prof.
I'iin de Forrest. Sharkey's weight was
172 pounds; McCoy's weight 158
pounds. They  shook hands at  10:10.
In the tenth and final round the
Kid kept skipping to the right and nm
Into a clinch where he held Tom without a blow being struck. Sharkey taking the advice of his chief second, Tom
O'llourke, played for the head but McCoy gunrdid himself effectively. Then
Tom tinned his attention to the body
and landed on the ribs with his left.
McCoy faltered and Tom caught him
with a left swing on the neck. McCoy
falteied and Tom caught him with a
left Bwing on the neck. McCoy fell to
the floor of the Hug with his head
hanging over the low-st of the ropes,
looking imploringly around. The Kid

Counted ten teooeds, ufter which he

McCoy seemed to bo in a helpless condition but. the referee Tim Hurst, did
uot trouble himself in counting seconds
but waved his right had to Hharkey to
retire to his corner, saying nt tho same
time " I counted McCoy out, ou the
other tall, you've wou."
McCoy st niggled to his feet and staggered to his curlier where his seconds
were ulreudy awaiting him and thoy
placed him on the I tool, while
Sharkey's adherents almost smothered
him with embraces and congratulations.

the argument was to have begun on

The Oar Bumped Along and all hut Went
Over With Several iaa-
Passengers on the rear car of the
Spokane Falls & Northern from Spokane to Nelson yesterday had a most
thrilling experience. That there was
not a loss of several lives or at least a
serious injuries received by the passengers seems miraculous.
The train was well filled with passengers and was speeding along at its
usual gait. At Denver Canyon between
Wanetta and Erie, the forward truck
of the rear car broke. At the time
tbe accident happened the train hud
just reached a trestle over the canyon.
When the rear car reached this the
passengers were thoroughly frightened. The car was jolted, it appeared
to the passengers, from one side to
the other and when they glance,1 from
the Windows and found that they were
crossing the trestle almost a panic ensued. The crashing of the ties us the
broken iron made its way over the
bi'jdge added to their terror and there
were few who believed that the cross-
would be made successfully. Fortunately, however, the rear truck of tbe
car did not leave the rails and tin
coupling between the second and thai
In the rear remained Intact. This enabled the train to cross the bridge
without further accident and to the
great relief of the passengers it was
soon brought to a halt. The accident
delayed the arrival of the train in Nelson several hours.
Among the passengers in the rear
car were J. Roderick Robertson and
John Elliott of Nelson and Chief Engineer Stevens of the Great Northern
railroad, These gentleman acknowledged that they were thoroughly
frightened and were extremely thankful that they escaped without injuries.

Admits More Than The Miner Charged-
AU of the Ohargei Made by  The Miner
Substantiated by Mr.  Houston's
Own Statements.
In an endeavor to reply to th
charges made in The Miner of yesterday in regard to lumber purchased for
the construction of the electric light
flume, Mayor Houston admits more
than bad even heen charged against
The Miner oharged that 180,500 feet
of the 180,000 feet was all that Gray's
mill was supplying at $10 a thousand
nt the mill, or $12.50 delivered at Summit Siding. Now the Mayor admits
that Gray's mill is selling the city
180,000 of \% inch and two inoh plank
at $10 a thousand at tho mill or $12.50
delivered at Summit Siding.
Tho loss to the city,according to the
Mayor's udmission.of $!! a thousand on
180,000 feet amounts to $540.00, instead of $891.50 ns charged hy The
This in itself is sufficient evidence
that the charges made by Tho Miner
are absolutely correct and that "the
best interests of the city have boon
sacrificed" in the purchase of the
lumber in question.
It is admitted that tho offer was
made by Frank Lavin, of Salmo, at
59.50 a thousand delivered at Summit
Siding which is another admission
of the correctness of tho statements
made in Tho Miner. In this connection, in justice to some of tho aldur-
niou, it should be stated that the offer
made by Mr. Lavin was unknown to
them and that they repudiate any
connection with the matter.
The Mayor attempts to excuse himself from giving the contract to Lavin
on tho ground that tho hitter's mill has
uot the proper capacity, though in the
sumo breath he admits that he did uot
enow this at the time that he ignored
Latin's offer in the intorests of Gray's
mill. As to tbe capacity of Luvin's
mill tho Mayor's statement is founded
it appears, ou information from one
Alfred Bunker, who is certainly not a
siiwini" man. It is well known that
the Salmo mill is ono of the best
equipped and fitted mills In the country
und that it has a capacity of at least
20,000 feet per day. If any ono (lunations the statement of The Miuor in
this respect they may inquire from
any of the mill men of tho city.
The Mayor further asserts thnt ho is
not interested in .the Nelson Planing
Mill (Gray's mill) oxoopt to tho ox-
tent that "ovory citizen of Nolson
should have in local industries."
This is a falsehood.
Does tho Mayor dony that ho took
possession of the same mill iu September lust under bills of sale given to
him by T. W. Gray?
Does ho dony thut at tho meetings
of tho creditors it was reported by
Cray's assignee. T. M. Ward, that Mr.
Houston was in possession of tho mill
and all the lumber and logs around tho
I iocs he dony that tho assignne was
powerless to do anything for tho creditor! iu tho face ot those bills of sain
and   the possession  taken under them?
Does he deny that from thut time
forth tho mill was run in his namo?
Does ha deny that Gray was from
thnt timo only in his employ?
Does ho dony thut accounts for lumber wero sent out from the mill in
his name?
Does he dony that T. M. Ward, tho
iiaiiignnii, has, up to tho present,
^iiien nimble to realise anything for
tho creditors of Gray on account of
Mayor Houston being in possession?
Does ho deny that tho creditors of
Gray during all this time havo reoog-

If the electors of Nelson vote tomorrow as they talk there is not the
slightest doubt of Mr. Neelands'
election as Mayor. And there should
be no reason to doubt that they will
vote as they talk. We believe that
the result of tomorrow's balloting
will be to put an end once and forever to Mr. Houston's control of
municipal affairs in this city. It is
high time. Intelligent, lespectable
men who have been following the
course of events here for a year and
more past do not require to be told
that there are more reasons than
one why some other person than the
present incumbent should be elected
to the Chief Magistracy of the city.
A Mayor is something more than a
mere civic administrator. II that
were all, any person with a business
head, whether with or without character, would answer the purpose.
He is, or is supposed to be, and
ought to be, something more than
this, however. He is expected, from
his position,to represent the respectability, the morality, the enlightenment of the community, as well as
its business requirements. It is not
necessary to say whether these have
had due justice done to them during
the first two terms of the Nelson
'The city has outgrown the peculiar views and the peculiar methods characteristic of the present
Mayor. Nelson is no longer a small,

is usually held in most esteem. Thi
is a great commercial centre, a judicial centre, an educational centre.
The population is largely composed
Of refined men and women, with
virtuous homes, in which boys and
girls are growing up into manhood
and womanhood. When we electa
Chief Magistrate he should be
one who is in sympathy with the
aspirations of a community that   is
looking lo what is highest and best
claims that the Legislature long ago
ought to have provided that 00
election petition should be tried
while the House was in session.
The country will not inquiry too
closely into his motives as long as
this can be alleged as the principal
object of the Bill, and the indignation of the Opposition members will
be wasted in denouncing it, lo the
predjudice of their own cause when,
as will doubtless happen, occasion
for genuine indignation will be given. Indignation is a peculiar thing
when displayed with cause, it is always impressive; if displayed without cause it soon ceases to have
effect. The Opposition would have
been wiser if they had been less
prodigal in their display of it on
this occason.
It is possible that the Attorney
General may be right when his motives are all wrong. We have little
doubt they are wrong in this case.
He is not the kind of person to have
his mind disturbed by the incongruity of an election trial being in progress while the member whose seat
is attacked is actually taking part
in the proceedings o( the House.
If he did not want to make the Government majority assured for lhe
session, he would never have
troubled his head about the matter.
In moving the second reading ofhis
Bill he is reported as denying "emphatically that the Government had
any motive in presenting this measure other than to see that every
constituency possible should have
continuous representation during
the session." We cannot speak for
tlie Government, but Mr. Martin
was never known to exhibit concern
for others unless it promised some
adv n'.agc to himself. There was
party advantage here, for without
those two seats the Government majority was by no means certain, and
the gentleman's position as a Cabinet Minister ,vas therefore in peril.
The Bill itself, however, aside from
this, is il. feasible. The only scandalous thing on the surface ol the
whole affair was the presence of Mr.
Dearie's name in the division which
carried the second leading.
The point of a paragraph in our
Municipal article yesterday was
partially lost through the accidental
omission of a sentence, ll had been
written thus: "The best that Mr.
Houston's friends can say of him is
that he is not so bail as painted.    11

Montreal, .Ian. 10���Shortly before
Christmas a young man named Arthur
(iatilhier arrived in Montreal from Chicago. He called himself Gardner and
(.���'aimed to be one of the fastest cyclists
in the world. Last Thursday night he
entertained a dozen of his friends in
high style at Riendeau hotel and upon
eaving tendered a $50 cheque signed
by the World Cycle Works Co. There
was a balance due him out of this,
amounting to $0.00, which he said he
would call again and get, but he never
came back. Riendean, of course, deposited the cheque with other papers
at his bank in the ordinary way and
was surprised to be informed that
cheques on the bank at St. Hyacinthe
signed as above had been seen before,
hut that there was no account with
the company and no funds to meet the
cheques. Detectives were sent to
trace the young man and arrested him
in a restaurant. Before Judge Des-
noyers in the police court, the accused
pleaded guilty to uttering a forged
cheque, knowing it. to he worthless,
and was remanded for sentence.

Mr. Rhodes is a masterful genius
who commands general admiration���
aid obedience. But he sometimes
meets his match. The brainy yount'
editor of a Rhodesian journal (VSalis-
bury) hart consistently "slated"
Rhodes and all his works. Hearing
that this journalist was in Cape Town
(?London) the Colossus invited him to
the Burlington Hotel to "talk him
over." When the young man entered
the room, his host snorted :
"Sit down I"
"No. thanks, I prefer to stand,"
said the visitor coolly.
Mr. Rhodes glanced at him, frowned
at this independent attitude and said
"What do you wont?"
"I don't want anything; you sent
for me."
"But your paper���why are you always attacking my work���what do
you want?" persisted Mr. Rhodes,
convinced that a subsidy was the one
thing necessary.
"Look here Mr. Rhodes," shouted
the journalist, "you are besieged by a
crowd of scoundrelly blackmailers,
who bleed you. I am not one of that
gang.   You can't buy me up I"
The great man nearly had an apoplectic fit. Never had he been thus
hectored. He swore, he snorted, he
paced feverishly up and flown the
room. Finally he strode up to his
critic and roared:
"But I can ruin you���you and your
d���d 'rag'.    Do you know that?" "
"Oh, no you can't, my friend."
retorted the young man, quite coolly.
"It's my 'rag', and I shall write what
I like in it. If you have, nothing further to tell me lot mo say 'Good-day',
I  am   just leaving for Rhodesia!"
And he walked out with a calm
assurance which quite staggered Mr.
Rhodes. The young man has since
changed bis views, and is now ono ef
Mr. Rhodes' most fanatical admirers,
and the mayor of a Rhodesian city.���

He All Plead Guilty.
The New York Sun accuses Canad
ians of minding their own busbies .
This is an unfair advantage to take of
us; for we cannot retort to the Sun in
like manner. The New York luminary
appears to be sincerely pained, however, because we take considerable interest in affairs Canadian, when we
might so much better employ our time
in worrying over the problem and
politics of the great American nation.
Then it goes a step farther and makes
It a reproach to us that the  Sun and
its friends are ignorant, i f lhe matters
which interest us, We should not
have thought without assistance of
the Sun's modest suggest Ion that any
person, or persons, so far removed
from the Sun olliee as are the stay-at-
home Canadians, were responsible for
Ihal journal's ignorance of Canadian
affairs and sentiments; but we are
free to confess that, if the blame is
really ours, we have a great deal to
answer for. However, when we turn
lo the Sun's article to Mud wherein we
have failed iu our duty and thus become responsible for its picturesque
misinformation respect ing (lanadn and
Canadians it is somewhat, confusing
lu Ibid that the head aud front, of  our
offending appears to be that our papers discuss the affairs of the Dominion     too    Industriously. ��� Montreal
