Limner spoke here this evening in he-
half of Leharon, Liberal candidate for
this constituency, made vacant hy the
death of the Hon. W. B. Ivbb. He dealt
as length on the prosperity the country is enjoying, quoting numerous
tints nnd figures nnd made a stirring
and eloquent appeal for unity on the
part of the people of Canada. Sir
Wilfrid dwelt on the Hoer war at some
length, emphatically condemning the
Boer Intelferenoe that caused war. and
expressing ardent hope and utmost
ci nlid' nee in the ultimate success of
Hritish aims.

Ottawa, Jan. 11.���Thousands of Ottawa ciitzens lined the sidewalks nnt-
wtthatandlng the keen biting air this
afternoon to witness the parade of
troops through some of the priucipnl
streets of the city. Officers aud men
presented a splendid appearanne and
although some of the horses were new
to the business everything passed off
very successfully. The parade added
to the military euthusinsin which is
everywhere present in the capital just
now. Tomorrow night the officers of
"D" battery will lie entertain3d to
dinner at the Russell House.
The evening papers say that squadron "B" Winnipeg, presented a soldierly appearance ob they were seen
passing through tbe city on the train
eurlyjthis morning.
Although the report that   tbe   board
has   rejected   the   Montezuma   is not
here yet,the department is looking out
for one   or two vessels   to replace her.
It is understood   that   Lord   Strathcona,   Canada's   Hiah   Commissioner,
has made au offer to raise two mounted squadrons   of two hundred each  or
four hundred men in all In the Canadian Northwest to  go to South   Africa.
All that Lord Strathcona   desires is to
get the militia machinery  or Canada,
in Other   words   the assistance of  the
Department   of   Militia   in enrolling,
..ni nn in. and equipping troops and he
will defray the entire cost of tbe same
as well as that of transports aud every
thing else necessary to take the soldiers
from   the  great   prairies of tbe  west
and tn   place   them at the frtnt, thoroughly equipped with  weapons and in
good fighting condition. Tbe matter is
still under  consideration  of Dominion
and Imperial   Governments.    A   military   expert   snys   that it would  take
about a   million   dollars to  carry  out
what     Lord     Strathcona      suggests.
Nothing   official   is to be had  on  the
subject.    If mutter is carried out then
an   opportunity   -will   be   givon  to a
number of those in the West who were
disappointed in   not  getting  on  this
continent to go to South Africa. There
is yet any amount of   mateiiul to pick
from west of Winnipeg.
Candidate Fletcher Thrown Down in the West Ward. -The
���    Names of This Year's Aldermen.-Notes on
The Late Contest-
Election day has come and cone and
Mr. John Houston is once more Ma' or
of Nelson. It was a keenly contested
struggle and emphasized once more
tho well known unreliability of the
pre-election promises of voters. Hoth
sides were badly disappointed in this
respect, but it was fatal to Mr. E'letoh-
er'B hopes.    It is true   that   the  west
if
in the Fast Ward, while Mr. F. A,
Crease filled the position nf deputy returning officer in the West Waul. Both
candidates had scrutineers at each polling place, hut nothing of Interest occurred, and hut few voters were challenged, Hamuli one or two aliens were
intercepted.

28, but  this was   nothing  compare! t..
what had heen   counted   on  from   the
promises Riven.    The unlocked for defections in tbe west ward undoubtedly
cost  Mr. Fletcher  tbe mayoralty election.    The day was a busy one anil thr
supporters of   both the candidates   for
tho mayoralty worked hard.   The Aid-
minimi.'   contest  did   not    aron��o  mi
ruuoh interest.    Hacks   and vehicles of
various descriptions   were   around   all
day   couveyinK   outlying voters t.. the
poll which was   a   fairly   heavy   one.
There w is no lack of confidence on
both sides, as was evidenced by tin
.tun.mil of speculation. At, least f-,000
was lost and won, and there was all
the way from |600 to 11,000 more uf
Fletcher money to be bad, but the
Houston funds did not appear i|Uile so
so plentiful, though thiro who
had money to spare bet freely.
Notwithstanding that the day was
unpleasant and the streets muddy and
slushy, Baker Street wus full of people
all dny long, and the one question ask
ed was, "How is the election going'.-"
Tho vote was as a rule polled early,
and the usual rush nt the close of noil
iug time was noticeably absent: nor
wus the usual distracted voter observed to rush up breathlessly to either
polling plaoe just to late too exercise
bis franchise.
Apart from the considerations mentioned, a lending factor in Mr. Houston's success wus the organized labor
vote. It is understood that nil tbe labor unions in town plumped for him.
The reason (liven for this is Mr. Houston's canipnign in favor of the Bight-
hour law of.which ho is the must ardent I j.(St year's'seven

deserved tribute to his   sterling   wi.rlli
und the faithful  service rendered  by
him in the Council chamlier last year.
His return was conceded by both

out of mind'' is a proverb peoullnrly
applicable to all kinds ol polities    Mr
Thomas   Miuldeii   was   the   other   un
successful candidate.
In the Kusl Ward Dr. II.  A, B   Hall
headed the poll by  80 votes,   it   was
anticipated   that    he     would   make   a
strong candidate, ami this anticipation
wus riallssd. "Blake" Wilson, another acknowledged certainly, was a
good second antl Ihat without having
to muke a canvass.    The third success.
fnl    candidate  was Mr,  Christopher
Morrison who led Mr. J. A.  living by
I the narrow majority of one. Mr, Irving, however, claims one ballot that
was rejected by the returning Officer,
antl should his claim be   snslaineil   by
Judge Forin, before whom   an  appeal
will bn tnken today, there will be a tie
for third place, leaving the returning

THK ELECTIONS.
Tbe Miner wishes that the Olty had
done just n. little better than it did
yesterday. Last year it supported live
of the seven municipal cuudidiites who
were elected, and it wns worth observing that a change of three votes would
havu elected the whole seven. Yesterday it supported live out of the seven
who were successful, hut was not so
close with the other two. That is
in itself an lusigniricnnt. regret : something graver is the defeat of Mr.
Fletcher by Mr. Houston in the eon-
test, for the Mayoralty. Mr. Verlaud's
absence [torn the City dnring the
critical period of the oampatgn will
i.xi lain and excuse his defeat, unri in
his place The Miner is not iu the least
loath to welcome Mr. Irvine, with the
sincere hope thnt ut the end of his
term it will have ns ({rent a r.speot for
him as it did at tbe end   of tbeit term
for   tbe two  Aldermen  of Inst  year's
Council whom it did not support.
But it will not profess to  he  reoon-
ciled    with   Mr.   Houston's   election.
It believes it was a mistake, nnd the
belief is not less strong the day  after
the election than it was on the dav before.    It is not so obstinate, however,
as to quarrel  with  the  choice of  the
majority,    That, majority wanted  Mr.
Houston,   nnd   it  was  their right  to
have him; it is the duty of all of us to  I'1',""1''r la adhering  !��� his pledge that

Mr. Hugh ,1.   Macdonald  has yone
outside of   the Legislature for one  of
I his colleagues, Mr. Davidson, a gentleman who was defeated at the general
'h it inn by  a   substantial  majority,
1 hi innol hut   wonder  why   he  baa
done this. Tho only explanation that
suggests Itself is that Mr. Macdonald
hopes to gain the soat Mr. Davidson
lost, through a petition to unseat the
sucresslnl candidate. That wonld he
good politics, tor although a majority 01 six looks big to a Hritish Co-
lunii.ian it is possible ihat in Manitoba
gnu ter virtue is attached to one ot
eight. II is ohBet.ed also that the new

accent tha verdict, nnd to unite in
making the best of it. In this it is Mr.
Houston's privilege to assist most ma-
tnrlally, and if be will keep up the
character   of sick monk which he   lias
so successfully assumed dnring the past
tew month it is possible that we may
come out at tbe end of the yenr with
pleasure and satisfaction all around.
He will ba Rreutly enoonroged and
stimulated, perhaps direotud, in his
eiforts to obtain graci in the sifjht of
the people by association with the six
gentlemen who have been elected ns
Aldermen. The City is certainly to be
congratulated on thn choice; take them
all in all, it would be bard to Improve
on them. One satisfaction we enn con-
lldently reckon on experiencing is,
that they are not likely to allow Mr
Houston to forget thnt he is Mayor
only and not the entire corpora tion.
In his character of monk ho may not
be disposed to do this, but nothing is
lost in heing on the safe side.

Such has been ihe esse witli these
towns. The Sidur of I'lgypl wus not
above disguising himself in older to

(' nc.ils no disguising, the ore is in
sight. The trade, nnd it is a huge
une. Instead of coming lo Nelsou, us
fnr ns lhe jobbing line is concerned
comes from the Kust Why should it
not oiiiio from Nelson? Tito distance
is not grout. Thu money is there.
The opportunity is nt bund to secure a
trade nf nt least three thousand dollars
per month to Nelson. The freight
rates   aro not extortionate   nud Nelson
merchants would do well to look into
bis section's trade, which is so close to
the borne interests, und so closely nl-
liod to tlie real welfare of Nelson.    As
a business mnn of that place said, "Nel-
sin don't seem to cure, for our trade.
We will trade whore we can do the
best.    Thut   is   only   natural,   But
really, Nelson is wlierj the business
should he done." Such a statement as
Hint from business men coming from
a quarter that should bo supplied by
Nelsou ought to awake some of the
Nelson jobbers to a realization of future prospects. Business can be acquired if it. is solicited, nioie i specially where it is ready lo drop into
the lap, Mr. Patrick Campbell, of
Kitchener, who bus been in the City
for two or throe days ]inst, stiys:
"Nelson ought lo havo ull lhe jobbing
Hade in Hint country."
Mr. Campbell inns a general merchandise store at Kitchener, and is in
a position to appreciate the requirements necessary for progress, and the
development of ;< huge business. Mr.
George Penny, another business mini
from that section. Indited at Creston,
says that Nolson is entitled to. and
ought to luve the wholesale trade of
everything west of Cranbrook.
Tlio merchants of thnt section

Sir���The suggestion to establish a
Mineral Museum in Nelson is one that
eserves the early attention of the new
Council, in order thut some steps nuiy
be taken in that direction to bavu at
least a beginning made before the coming season. A collection of typical
specimens of the various prodnuts of
Kootonny mines and prospects would
be the greatest value, not only for a
mine owner, but also tu the prospector, us, if properly urning"d, and the
values, not of nicked specimens but of
average samples, attaohed tn enoh, ns

rnrinn of the Free Library, nnd it u
nni ice uf the existence of such a collection wire to be prominently displayed in the various hotels, there
would be found to ho no lack of visitors to tho museum. The collection
need not be confined to the Nelson district, lint should be such us would give
a ooinnrehensive view of Kootenay

Recently   an   ice jam slid   the   Willie

we hnve tu do is to stretch   a   fish   net
