CARRO HEROES'
GALLANT WORK
Village Fishermen Rescue the
Passengers and Grew of
Steamer Russie.
Success Crowns Their Efforts
at Daybreak This
Morning.
Faraman, Jan. 11. ���After a night of
terrible suspense all of the passengers
and crew of the French steamer Russia, which stranded near here during
a violent storm Monday, have been
safely landed. As the large line connected from the shoro with the steamer parted again yesterday afternoon,
po communication with the stranded
steamer was possible last night. The
last signalled message read as follows:
"We have not a scrap of food left.
Consternation prevails on botrd." On
receipt of this appeal the fishermen
made two more plucky launches of
their boat but were beaten back and
as the Russie disappeared in the darkness those on board were apparently
trying to launch their only remaining
boat. The storm raged with renewed
fury during the night and only those
who were compelled to do so stayed
on tbe shore, part of them huddled beneath a tarpaulin and others seeking
refuge from the gale in the Faraman
light house. At midnight two floats
with lines attached were launched,
but both attempts to reach the Kussie
were fruitless. In the early hours of
the morning-, torches were lighted at
the bow of the Russie and in response
to tbe signal the fishermen made another effort to reaoh the wreck. They
were again tossed ashore and the crew
of the lifeboat, who belonged to the
fishing village of Carro, gathered
around a bonfire made of wreckage
from tbe steamer,drenched to the skin
and with their teetli chattering from
cold but not discouraged. Their heroism was finally rewarded as with daybreak the weather moderated. The
sea became calmer and the wind having shifted from east to north, the
Carro fishermen at about C :30 a. m.
again put to sea. The spectators
watched with fast beating hearts as
the boat disappeared through the
waves. More than once it was thought
she had been engulfed but the small
craft rose in sight again on the crests
of the seas and moved gradually nearer to the Russie. The rope was thrown
which the fishermen caught and the
lifeboat was soon alongside. Then
above the howling wind rose cries of
joy from those on board the Russie
which were re-echoed by the crowd
ashore. Another boat manned by
four men was launched and succeeded
In reaching the wrecked vessel. A
few minutes later the Carro boat left
the RUssie's side heavily laden. As
she approached the, shore the occu
pants were seen to be several women
and one baby. The enthusiasm was
delirlouB. The spectators plunged into the sea. Some of them dragged the
life boat ashore and others lifted the
women out of the boat and carried
tbem in their arms through the waves
to dry land.

A POLITICAL GAME.
C. P. R. and Crow's Nest Pass Coal
Company.
Toronto, Jan. 11.���The Mail and
Empire this morning, discussing the
Globe's attack on the C. P. R. a few
days ago, and the attitude of the
Crow's Nest Coal Co.'s directorate toward that company, says in some
quarters of Toronto tbe matter is regarded as a prelude to a carefully prepared political game, true significance
of which will shortly be made apparent. Tbe paper hints at the likelihood of an attempt being made to obtain a charter for rivalry in British
Columbia.
SNOW AT VANCOUVER.
Roofs and  Buildings   Are   Collapsing
Beneath Its Weight.
(SPECIAL TO THE MINIOK.)
Vancouver, B. C, Jan. 11.���As anticipated, the three feet of melting

are no nearer completion than they
were six months ago.
CHINA FOR
THE CHINESE
Prince Chun Says That Is All
the Boxer Movement
Meant.
Also Says Emperor Desires
to Return to the City
of Pekin.
Pekin, Jan. ,10.���Prince Chun,
brother of the Emperor, who is now
in Pekin, and in whose honor the Germans will bold a review, says thst
while be does not represent the court
officially he knows his biother's sentiments are in favor of returning to
Pekin. Indeed the Emperor wrote to
Prince Cbing recently and asked if
his apartments were in a fit state for
his early return. Prince Chun says
the Chinese have a side question. The
foreigners do not seem to realize tbat
China objects to the maintenance of
the legation guard as more than a
purely temporary measure, because
there is no necessity for it. The Boxer movement, he asserts, was a purely
patriotic one, meaning China for the
Chinese. For many years the nations
begged for trading privileges. Having
obtained these, and waxed rich from
the profits thereof they forced undesirable treaties upon China with threats
of confiscation of the choicest parts of
the country. The slightest riot has
been -made tbe occasion to acquire territory and obtain valuable concessions. Naturally even a peaceable people will turn at last. The people of
China, Prince Chun declares, have
been gradually worked up over the
recent loss of territory art Wei Hai
Wei, Port Arthur and elsewhere, and
also over the granting of rights and
honors to Catholic missionaries by
officials. All ' Oriental nations are liable peiiodically, the same as individuals, to run amuck.
The Chinese according to Prince
Chun misbehaved no worse than did
the French during the celebrated revolution. The Chinese, he says are
tbe most peaceable race on the earth,
and such trouble as recently occurred
is not likely to happen again for centuries. He believes the Empeior is
friendly to foreigners, who desire to
preserve the integrity of the Empire.
He says that it is a mistake to attribute unlimited power to the Empress Dowager, though she naturally
has that influence with the Emperor
which the Chinese always concede to
relations who are their seniors and
which is beautifully shown by their
veneration for their ancestors.
prince Cbing has received a telegram from the court objecting to tbe
clause in the joint note regarding the
punishment of more than those mentioned in the Imperial decree of Sep
tember. Prince Ching replied to this
message that it was necessary to sign
first and argue afterwards. The Ministers refuse to listen to arguments
until they shall have received a definite reply to the demand.
DO WITHOUT A LEADER.
Ottawa, Jan. 11.���W. F.   MacLean,
M. P., for East York, who  was  here
! yesterday, favors   the  programme  of
I the opposition  being controlled  by  a
committee and all party tactics referr-
ed to it instead of to the leader as  in
' tbe past.
VALUABLE INVENTION.
London, Jan. 11.���The Geneva cor-
responent of the Daily Mail credits an
engineer named Plnata with the invention of a mechanical brake that
will stop a train running 35 miles an
hour within eight yards and 50 miles
and hour within 20 yards. Passengers can apply the brake by pulling
an alarm cord.'.The shock is less
than that caused by existing brakes.
The Government will adopt the invention on trains throughout Switzerland.
DON'T WANT IT.
Paris, Jan. 11.���The correspondent here of the Associated Press learns
on good authority that the suggestion
to the Government of the United
States to change tbe seat of the Chinese peace negotiations from Pekin
to Washington will be declined by
the powers.
INFLUENCE OF THE VATICAN.
Pans, Jan. 11.���In the Chamber of
Deputies today M. Marcil Sombat,
Radical Socialist, one of the deputies
for the Seine Department, Introduced
an interpellation on the influence of
the Vatican upon the internal policies
of France. M. Waldeck Rosseau asked tbat tbe Interpellation be allowed
to follow the order, of the day. The
Chamber rejeoted the suggestion, but
agreed to a subsequent request by the
Premier that the discussion should
take place next Monday, before the debate of law of associations.
ONSLAUGHT ON NORFOLK.
Feature of Daily News. First Appearance Under New Management.
London, Jan. 11.���The Daily News
makes its first appearance under its
new editorship tbis morning. It bears
no outward mark of change. The
name of the editor is not announced.
It makes no comment on the war.
The first leader is devoted to an onslaught on the Duke of Norfolk, full
of fiery Protestant indignation punctuated with nnbrldged adjectives. The
Dukes behavior is dubbed contemptible, and his address to the Pope despicable. Other papers say that the
oarsman, R. C. Lehman, is the editor
of the paper.
ARE PREPARING
FOR THE ENEMY
British Warship Lands Men
and Guns at Lamberts' Bay.
Poor Whites and Bondsmen
are Daily Joining Boer
Invaders.
Cape Town, Jan. 11.���The British
warship Sybil haB anchored in Lambert's Bay and landed a force of blue
jackets and a number of guns. This
force has constructed entrenchments.
Hertzog's main body, seven hundred
strong, with two guna, has crossed
the Roggeveld mountains and is now
probably in the neighborhood of
Eland's Drift, 50 miles east of Clan
William. Hertzog's intention, apparently, is to move toward Ceres and
Worcester. Only a few passes are fit
for the guns and the whole country is
difficult to traverse. The passes are
narrow and easily defended. According to latest reliable reports another
party of 500 Boers has reached the
Loom River, seventy miles south of
Calvina. Tbe authorities are doing
all in their power to meet the situation.
Refugees from Calvina and Clan
William are flocking to Picquetberg
Road. They state that many poor
whites are oeitain to join the Boers.
Then, too, many bitter bondsmen in
the neighborhood of Clan William
and Malmesburg openly declare tbat
they intend to join the invaders. A
small commando about 200 strong,
crossed the Orange River near Aliwal.
It was met on the borders of the Aliwal, the Woodhouse and the Barkley
East districts by body of police and
mounted farmers and was repulsed
with some loss. It is probable it
will attempt again to cross the river.
Dewet was last reported in the neighborhood of Botbaville. All the towns
in Orange River colony on the main
line of the railway are strongly held
by the British, and the Boers show no
disposition to approach them.
PERHAPS "BOBS" BROTHER.
Abraham Roberts, Who Recently Died
a Pauper in San Francisco.
San Francisco, Cal., Jan. 11.���The
contents of a letter found among the
effects of the late Abraham Roberts,
who died on January 0th, in a room
on Howard Street, led the coroner to
believe that the man may have been a
brother to Earl Roberts, commander
in chief of the British Army. The
letter in question was written Nov.
2, 1894, by Harry Roberts, a Brother
to the deceased. It aays: "Our
brother, General RoDerts, is now, I
believe, in charge of tbe English
forces in Ireland." Abraham Roberts
was 70 years of age. He had no rela
tives here and his body is still at the
morgue.
FIND A MOVER.
Ottawa, Jan. 11.���Hugh Guthhrie,
M. P., for South Wellington, has consented to move the adoption of tho address which will be seconded by
Charles Marcil, M. P., for llonaven
ture County. Both members are fluent
and polished speakers,
SOLUTION OF
LEAD QUESTION
Views of Mr. G. 0. Buchanan
of Kaslo on an Important Problem.
A  Bonus on  Manufactured
Lead Will Increase Miners' Profits.
A recognized authority on the lead
question is Mr. G. O. Buchanan of
Kaslo. The Miner's review of the
smelter situation the other day has
led Mr. Buchanan to write as follows:
Editor of The Miner:
Sir,���The fact that there are two
lead stacks in the country in full blast
seven days in the week, and that
their owners are not supposed to be
philanthropists, suggests that perhaps after all the time is not so fur
way, when the problem of the treatment of lead ores will be effectually
solved.
The facts presented in your article
of a few days ago in themselves establish the conclusion that there is no
longer any particular reason why our
Province should be dependent upon
her neighbors over the line for a market for her production of silver and
lead.
For the whole of 1900 the value of
lead to our shippers has been based
upon London and not upon New York
prices.
On Jan. 3, 1900, lead was quoted in
New York at 94.45 per 100 pounds.
At the same date it was quoted in
London, at ��16 7s. Od. per long ton.
At these rates the London market
was worth to the B. C. shipper 40
cents per ton of lead more than the
New York market. On the 15th of
June the rates were New York. 93.60,
London ��17 5s. and the difference
in favor of London was 99.84.
The people engaged in the smelting business in the United States
bave smelted the bulk of our ore and
refined the whole of it, and oarried it
to market simply because they had
plant, shipping facilities and capital
adequate to tbe requirements, and
tbese requisites are not yet available
in Canada.
I think that you will find, when the
report of the Minister of Mines is
published (in June or December next)
tbat you bave over-estimated our output of lead ores for 1900. Tbe lead ore
production for the Slocan camps and
Ainsworth has not, I think, exceeded
32,000 tone, and the iead contents 'iave
been lower than in former years (improved means of transportation having rendered possible the shipment of
ore less carefully sorted.) Of 20,000
tons entered for export at the Kaslo
Onstom House, the lead contents are
given as 0,000 tons only. Allowing
for East Kootenay and other mines,
20,000 of ore gives us a total of 52,-
000 tons of lead ore, representing possibly 15,000 tons of lead.
1 am aware that we muBt expect a
considerable increase in 1901. But in
the meantime, if our home consumption of 13,000 tons per annum was
supplied from our own mines, the exportable Burplus would not be very
formidable. I have every confidence
that the tariff of duties upon lend
products will be now put upon an
equitable basis, and I believe that the
Dominion Government will be disposed to encourage the establishment of a
refinery by the offer of a bounty to
be paid at a rate per ton, upon the refined produet.
Such a bounty might be arranged as
in the case of the bounties new paid
for iron smelting, upon a sliding scale,
beginning at, say, 95.00 per toa, and
reaching a vanishing point at tbe
end of 10 years. The proposal may
produce svmptoms of apoplexy in
Cobdenites, but will not seem out of
place in a budget which provides
railway subsidies and lighthouses,
experimental farms, and fish hatcheries, and more particularly the apropos instance that I have mentioned of
the iron bounties.
With or without these concessions
we will, I think, find in a short time
the capacity of our home smelters increased to the extent of another 100
tons per day of ore. It is highly improbable that these foreign competitors will allow our local smelters to
have all the ore, and between the two
all the  ore and   all the kinds of ore
that we have will be in demand. As
to the dry ore problem, I do not think
there is any such thing. A dry ore
supply has not been developed in Kootenay, because it was not in request.
Our fat ores have been going to Salt
Lake.to be used in fluxing the dry ore
of the Utah man. Our prospectors
have turned their backs upon siliclous
propositions, carrying $20 in silver,
because such ore would not bear transportation to distant smelters. At any
rate, it is no further from Boundary
to Kootenay Lake than it is from
Kootenay Lake to Boundary, and the
less should come to the greater. The
adaptation refers to ores,not to inhabitants. G. O. BUCHANAN.
Kaslo, B. C, Jan. 10.
ETHOPIA FLOATED.
Slightly Damaged and Much Water in
Her Forehold.
London, Jan. 11.���The Anchor line
steamer Ethopia, which went ashore
yesterday on Holy Island In the Firth
of Clyde, has been floated and has
returned to Glasgow. Tho weather
was calm when the Ethopia grounded
and there was no panic among the
passengers. Signals of distress were
made and a tug stood by until the
steamer got off. The Ethopia is damaged and has much water in her fore-
hold.
BOUND FOR CAPE COLONY.
Five Thousand Boers Are Treking
East From Vryburg.
London, Jan. 11.���"Five thousand
Boors supposed to be treking east
from Vryburg" says the Cape Town
correspondent of The Daily Mail,
���'are now making their way into the
heart of Cape Colony. The supposition is that they have captured several
small garrisons on the way."
SOLDIERS EN ROUTE HOME.
Halifax, N. S., Jan. 11.��� The remains of Lieut. Sutton, who died on
board the Roslyn Castle on Sunday,
were conveyed from the Naval hospital to the garrison chapel and from
thence to the train for Quebec this
morning. The Mounted Rifles and
Dragoons left by a special train at
7:15 last night and the artillery by a
special at 10:30. About twenty-five
per cent, of troops, however, remained
over and will leave by regular trains.
KILLED BY HIS WIFE.
Kansas City, Mo., Jan. 11.���Philip
W. Kennedy, agent for the Merchants'
Despatch Transportation Co., was
shot four times and killed last night
by his wife, Lulu K. Kennedy, at his
office in the New Ridge building.
THIRTV-ONE VICTIMS.
Rochester, N. Y., Jan. 11.���Ilyman
Saperstone, aged four years, died at
the Ilahainaiin hospital this afternoon
making the 31st viotim of the Orphan
Asylum fire of Tuesday morning.
SANDON'S CARNIVAL.
Arrangements Being Completed for
the Big Winter Attraction.
Commencing on Monday the 28th
inst. Sandon will devote three days to
having a jolly good time. Winter
sports of all sortB will be the attraction,
and it is expected that all the towns
in the district will send representatives to contest for tho prizes.
Curlers and hockey players will go
from Nelson and Rossland also promises to send a party. Handsome prizes
will be offered for the athletic events.
Skating races will occupy a prominent
place on the programme, and a grand
masquerade at the rink on one of the
nights will be a popular attraction.
The railways will issue reduced rate
tickets.
As the snow has fallen to a considerable depth on tbe streets of Nelson,
the matter of substituting the wheels
of the hose wagon of the Fire Department with runners is now being considered. A blacksmith has been asked
as to the cost of making runners and
his estimate placed the cost at 9100.
The mattei has been considered by the
Council but no definite action has been
taken. The wagon is a heavy one and
considerable difficulty is encountered
in getting to a fire with the present
conditions of the streets. But two
days ago a tire occurred up the hill in
the southern portion of the City and
considerable time elapsed before the
department reached the fire. If sleighs
were provided much time would be
saved and undoubtedly considerable
loss would be prevented. This matter
will probably be considered by the new
Council.
ELECTIONS BY
ACCLAMATION
No Voting for Mayor or Aldermen In Nelson This
Year.
New Council Will Be Sworn
In and Assume Duties
Next Monday.
It is altogether probable���in fact
practically certain���that when th*
City Council meets next Monday night
it will be Mayor Fletcher and Aid,
Selous, Madden, Hamilton, Gillette,
Irving and Paterson. Nominations
for Mayor and Aldermen for the City
of Nelson are to be made next Monday
and if more than one candidate for
Mayor and mom than three in each
ward for Aldermen do not present
themselves for nomination, City Clerk
J. K. Strachan will declare the gentlemen named above as the members
of the City Council for the civio year
about to open. No other candidates
are spoken of and the whole Council
will go in by acclamation. They
will be sworn in immediately and assume office tbe same day. If the re
was a contest, of course the new Council would not be ready to sit for a
week longer. The present Council
will have to show a most undignified
haBte in cleaning up its house if it is
to make room for the new Council on
Monday. It was the intention to hold
another meeting on Monday night
but in view of the early swearing in
of the new Council a special meeting
may be held.
However, those wbo like to mark
ballots will not be cheated out of an
election. The district messenger service by-law must come before the people and will be voted on Thursday
next. The vote will be much smaller
than it would be if there were contests in the two Wards but there is no
danger of it being defeated.
THAT SEA SERPENT.
It  Has   Grown   Into   a    Monster  of
Frightful Appearance.
That Crawford Bay sea serpent that
was discovered several months ago by
a friend of The Miner has grown considerably and has become a monster ot
most frightful mcin. This information is secured from a dispatoh appearing under a Vancouver date in
the New York World. It is as follows:
Vancouver, B. C, Dec. 30.���A sea
serpent of large dimension has been
captured alive on Kootenay Lake. It
is ten feet long,six inches in diameter
at the largest part, and has a most
hideous head. There are .wo large
horns just above the ears and the
mouth is seven Inches from side to
side.
There are over forty teeth, those of
the lower jaw being twice as long a*
the upper, and protruding to give the
expression a most ugly appearance.
The serpent was captured by George
Graves, a prominent merchant of Nelson, and his son, who hooked the big
snake. The later turned the tables on
the men, und they narrowly escaped
being thrown jut of their rowboat, so
furiously did the serpent lash the
water.
He is very fierce and will snap in
two a good-sized cane as if it were a
toothpick.

NO TALK NOW OF SALE.
London, Jan. 11.���A despatch from
Copenhagen to The Morning Post says
the proposal to sell the Danish Welt
Indies to the United States seems to
have been definitely abandoned. The
ratification of an economic treaty between Denmark and the L'nited States
affecting the islands is regarded as
imminent.
SICKNESS  IN CHINA.
Klmira,   N.   Y.,  Jan.   11.���Fifteen
hundred Elmirans are ill of the grippe,
one hundred of  pneumonia, and  fifty

six deaths from diphtheria within tho
past 10 days.

Now that the way is cleared to the
Powers to settle down to the serious
work of negotiating a treaty with
China, it is time to consider whether
tbe United States Senate is expected
to have anything to do with it. The
United States is a party to the negotiations, and its duly accredited representative will be one of the signatories, if a treaty shall be concluded.
Will this require that it shall be submitted to the Senate for ratification?
The less civilised and enlightened
Powers of Europe, who for centuries
have enjoyed the liberty to make
treaties according to the exigencies as
they arose, will experience no embarrassment in the present case; but if
the United States Senate is to have a
voice ia a treaty t�� which tbat country is only one of several principals,
we would not pin much on the faith
of a satisfactory conclusion. The Senate never troubles itacit about moral
obligations,and declines to be incommoded with any absurd sense of international good faith; it invites the
confidence of the trusts and corporations, and bases its judgment of treaties on the interests which these may
consider to be paramount. They may
not be able to detect anything objec
tionable in a joint treaty with the
Chinese; but if they do, the Senate
will take precious good care to put its
foot down heavily on the American
end of it.      	
Our local morning contemporary is
hardly fair in its reference to the
Press service. It complains that the
news is sometimes sent in fragments,
and then quotes in illustration a dispatch that is obviously a continuation
of something that had preceded. So
it was. Newspapers that take only
the morning or the afternoon service
cannot expect to have the completeness
of both. The Associated Press cannot
repeat for morning papers what it has
already sent out in its afternoon dispatches. There has been much to
complain of the news service supplied
the Kootenays; but latterly it has
boen quite satisfactory, and it is only
fair to tbe telegraphic branch of the
C. P. R. system to admit as much.
Those who want all the news should
get both services; if they get only
one, they should have the grace not to
complain of "fragments."
President McKinley insists that
his proposition to transfer the Peking
negotiations to Washington shall be
considered by the Powers, according
to one Washington dispati'h, and he
has withdrawn the proposition, according to another. Tbis is a case in
which we pays our money and takes
our choice.	
"Socalist," in a letter elsewhere,
puts his case in a manner that leaves
nothing to be added to it.
TO THE ELECTORS OF THE WEST
WARD.
I beg to announce myself as candidate as Alderman for the West Ward
at the coming civic election, and solicit your vote and interest.
HAROLD SELOUS.
ANNOUNCEMENT.
To the Electors of the East Ward:
I have been requested by a number
of electors to offer myself as a candidate. If elected I will do what 1 can
to keep the water and electric light
systems of the city thoroughly efficient and operated at a profit. I fa
vor the construction of an electric
power plant on Kootenay River.
Respectfully,
JOHN A. IRVING.
January 3rd, 1901.
A "progressive" Mayor, with
suppose, a "progressive" Council, has
been elected in Vancouver, and the
town is consequently to be a "wide-
open" one. So we see it announced
in large capitals in a near-by newspaper. There are "progressive" candidates in a number of other cities and
towns in British Columbia, including
Nelson. Special care is taken by
many of these to have the fact that
they are "progressives" appear in
their published cards. Is this to be
taken to mean that if "progressive"
Councils are elected the towns so distinguishing themselves are thereupon
to become what is known as "wide-
open?" There are few good citizens
of any town in this Province who
are not progressive in the proper sense
of tbe word���men who are imbued
with the spirit which strives for advancement and prosperity. These are
ao numerous that good Councils can
be selected from them without any
appreciable diminution of their
ranks, and we do not know that it is
necessary to fall back on that peculiar
variety of "progressives" who flaunt
< their contempt for the moralities in
the faces of a people who still retain
some regard for the public decencies
under whose influences tbey have been
reared. 	
A CARD.
we I To the Ratepayers of the  City of Nel
son:
Ladies and Gentlemen,���Having
been requested by a number of friends
(ratepayers) in this city to become a
candidate for alderman in the East
Ward, I may Say I have plenty of spare
time on hand, and would be pleased
to devote a portion of it toward attending to your interests, not only in
the East Ward but throughout the
City generally. Should you deem my
services acceptable, and honor me
with a place at your municipal board,
I shall do my best to merit the confidence placed in me.   Faithfully,
JOHN PATERSON.
Nelson, B. C., December  24th, 1900.
The lead question is now an all-absorbing one and the district papers
are busy discussing it. Tbe Kaslo
Kootenai an. concludes an exhaustive
article as follows: We submit, first,
That the treatment within Canada of
all of our lead ores would nearly dou
ble to the connry the value of the lead
mining industry; second, That better
terms could be afforded to the producers of high grade ores than they
have hitherto enjoyed; third, That
the low grade ores now valueless
could be treated by home smelters at
rates that would encourage the mining of a greatly increased tonnage;
fourth. That the smelting business
offers an inviting field under existing
conditions for investment of from
one to three millions of dollars of
capital; fifth, That the imposition of
an export duty, or a discriminatory
tax. would be an injustice to the ore
produser, and is not necessary to the
Buocersful establishment of smelters.
Anything from the pen of Mr. G. O.
Buchanan regarding the lead question
Is a valuable contribution to the discussion of a problem in the solution of
which the future of this country is
very much interested. The Miner is
fortunate today In being able to publish a letter from Mr. Buchanan. In
The Miner's icview of the situation
this week it was estimated that our
production of lead ore last year was
nearly 100,000 tons. Mr. Buchanan's
estimate cuts ours nearly in two. but
The Miner has no reason to believe
that its estimate will admit of such a
reduotion,   The Miner  received   Its
ANNOUNCEMENT.
To the Electors of the East Ward:
A number of the electors of the
ward have requested me to run for
alderman at the coining election, and
I have consented to make tbe race.
My platform is:
First���Keep tbe water and electric
light systems so thoroughly efficient
that thev will yield a good return for
the capital invested.
Second���The installation of an eleo
trie power plant on Kootenay River, so that Nelson will he in a position to offer inducements to industrial
enterprises.
Third���All departments of the City
should be in charge of thoroughly
practical men.    Respectfullv,
WILLIAM O. GILLETT.
January 4th, 1901.
ANNOUNCEMENT.
To the Electors of the West Ward:
In consenting to become a candidate
for alderman in this ward at the request of a number of friends, I can
only promise that, if elected, I will
do my utmost to advance the City's
best interests as I understand them.
JOHN HAMILTON.
Nelson, January 4, 1001.
ANNOUNCEMENT.
To the Electors of the West Ward:
In response to urgent solicitations
from my friends, I hereby announce

son in her present position, of being

First���The   installation   of a power
plant on Kootenay River.
Second���Continuing the   permanent

A Check For a Large Sum and How It
Was Cashed.
"There isn't a great deal of romance in my business," remarked a
prominent Chicago banker to a writer for the Washington Star the other
day, "but now and then something
turns up out of the ordinaiy an!
makes us wonder at the pecularities
of those who have dealings with us. 1
recall an instance just now which is
as yet not explained, and will never
be, I fancy, as the chief actor in it
was killed some time ayo in a railway accident. I never knew the man
personally, but he was a depositor in.
our bank, whose account was a personal one to the extent of 810,000. He
carried that much as a rule, and the
few checks that he made against it
never indicated what his business
was. He was about fifty years of
age,and very rarely came to the bank.
Naturally I never gave him a thought
for 810,000 is not a large deposit in
Chicago, and beyond his deposit I
had no interest in him.
"It happened, therefore, thai, when
one day I received a personal letter
from our depositor I was n bit surprised, and was still more so when I had
read it. I do not recall the exact
wording, but it was to the effect that
within a day or two a woman would
present a check drawn by him for
95,000, and that as she was unknown
he wished me to see that she received
the money without trouble, and that
she would bring with her her means
of identification in the person of a
little K'rli "ho would answer correctly the questions I must ask her, as
directed in his letter with the answers as he gave them. These questions were simple enough, being only
the child's full name, her age to the
month, where born, the full name
of her mother, and her father and of a
'little brother' who was dead. Five
thousand dollars was a good deal of
money to let go on that kind of evidence, hut that waB all I had, and the
depositor wbb in California, so that
I could not see him personally.
"Well, the next day the paying teller rami to me with his eyes bulging,
saying that about as hard a looking
ease of a beggar woman as he had
ever seen was at his window with a
check   drawn   to  the   order  of   Mrs.
Blank by Mr. , and that as he  did
not know how she was to get the
money, he had come to ask me about
It. 1 sent for her to come into my
private office, which she did bringing
the little girl with hor, who was no
less a picture of abject poverty than
her mother was. All she could say
was that she had received the check
by mail from a man whose name was
not familiar to her, with instructions
to. present it at the bank and the
money would he paid her if she would
take tbe little girl with her. I asked
the child the questions I had been requested to ask, and she answered correctly each one, which relieved me of
���further responsibility, and I ordered
the check to be cashed. The woman
did not seem to be greatly overcome
by her good fortune, and as I could
tell her nothing of the man who had
given the money to her, she didn't
seem to have any further use for me,
and went back to the paying teller's
window. She asked for the money in
950 bills, and wrapping it up in an
old newspaper went out of the bank
without a word to anybody.
"She was no longer at the address
she gave rae when I sent a messenger
there to make inquiries, aud her benefactor I never saw again, for he met
his death on his way East from California. I fanoy he would not have
told me ths story of his life, but I
shall always wonder if the name we
carried on our books was the one he
carried in hiB youth."

passenger, and returns to Phoenix after the arrival of the westbound.
The announcement that the Imperial Government will pay the allowance
lor ihe recruits for the South African
Constabulary from the time they are
enrolled and also their transportation
to South Africa has greatly increased
the interest taken in recruiting and
once more Lieutenant Beer is waylaid
every few yards by young men anxious to join. As yet no official instructions regarding enrollment have
been made.
Vj "iMf��� **^ M. Lemmon, who violated
'""tire Wades and .License By-law, and

and without frlendB iu the west and
the funeral expenses were paid by tbe
City. An effort was made to find out
where the relatives lived but all at
-tempts failed. It is probable that

the City as no answer has been received from the telegrams that have been
sent out for the purpose of finding
his relatives.
The exhibition hockey game played

A DEFENSE 017 NOM DJJ PLUMES.
Editor of Tho Miner:
Sir,���We are weary of this rot
akout the neglect and contempt that
are to be showered upon writers like
"Veritas" and "Pro Bono Publico."
Why should writers who desire to
discuss public utilities be required to
sign their names?
If a writer asperses the character of
a living person, or bases animadversions upon allegations the truthfulness or otherwise of which is known
only to himself, there is good reason
for asking who the writer is.
But in the case of one who deals
with facts that are matters of public
notoriety and argues from these to
oertain conclusions, what matters
the personality of the writer? It is
the arguments that are to be dealt
with, not the individual who presented them.
It is said that there are newspapers
that habitually exclude unsigned articles. But such papers are few and
insignificant, and carry no weight in
establishing a rule as agiinst the
practioe of nearly all newspaperdom.
A newspaper can editorially villify
and misrepresent and ridicule individuals, and to all intents and purposes do it anonymously. In some
towns the victim is unable to discover
whether the assailant is a person paid
by the newspaper for that kind of
work, or a person paid by the City for
doing its work.
It is not every literary man who is
qualified to redress personal insult by
the me'hods of R. F.���(Robt. Fitz-
simmons)���and such characters prefer
to avoid it by modestly putting their
opinions before the public and allowing the opinions to stand or fall upon
their own merits. SOCIALIST.

WISE LANDLADY,.
Undcrstan
How   to   Increase
ness.
H.i   Busl-
m
The landlady of a certain restaurant in Brockton, Mass.,has increased
her business so rapidly that she has
had to enlarge her dining room to accommodate the continually increasing
patronage. One of her guests, gives
the reason.
"Every morning she serves her
regular guests with Grape-Nuts and
hot milk or not cream in cold weather,
and cold creamy in summer. I began
eating this food and right away began to feel an improvement in my
health. 1 had been terribly troubled
with nervousness and dyspepsia and
found it impossible to find a food that
would agree with me, until I began
boarding at this restaurant.
"The new food in four months, increased my weight from 120 pounds to
145 and I never felt as well in my
life as I do now. There is something
remarkable, in the sustaining power
of this food. I have never been able
to obtain such results from any
other." G. R. Hersey, 30 L Street,
Brockton, Mass,
Bennett Has Some Uncomplimentary Things to Say.
A sensation was created in Vancouver on Sunday afternoon, by the caustic remarks of Major C. C. Bennett, of
the Duke of Connaught's Own. There
was a turnout of only half strength
at the parade through a foot and a
half of snow to Christ Church. On
their return to tbe drill hall the men
were complimented by Colonel Wors-
nop on their fine appearance,and then
Major Bennett followed with a statement that this applied only to tbe
men who were present. The others,
he said, were fine weather soldiers,
and if he had his way he would take
their uniforms away and expell them
all. They were a disgrace to the regi
ment.    He secured their   names.
SUICIDE WITH   A SPOON.
Wedged in the Soldier's Throat and
Cutting Through the Windpipe.
"Suicide while temporarily insane," was the verdict given at Alder
shot as the cause of the extraordinary
death of a private in the 1st Royal
Lancaster Regiment named Shaw-
cross. He had been admitted into the
Connaught Hospital, Aldershot, en
November 11th, suffering from ague,
and two days later he was discovered
lying on his bed black in the face,
with his throat swollen and struggling for breath. Medical investigations could discover nothing in his
throat, and for some days Shawcross
struggled on and died. A postmortem examination revealed a large tablespoon, with the bowl uppermost,
wedged in his throat, the edge having
cut through the windpipe

clerk had made a nistake in the price.    It was marked $20.00, but I felt relieved when my neighbor came home with one exactly
the same at the same price.    This is the way they are selling them all now."
