Nelson,   British Columbia, Friday Evening,   December 28,   1900.
Eleventh   Year
GOflST TO KOOTENfW
Arrangements Made ft P)^
of a Road-Work to BepPfKa
Spriag.
Hnnstraction
In
Vanocuver, Doc. 28.���The Victoria,
VancouTer aud Eastern Railway and
Navigation Company has been formally organized. The question of the
building of a Coast to Kootenay line
ia no longer a matter of doubt or supposition. It ifl now a plain everyday
buslneBi   fact   that   the   road will be
built.
Up to tbe present time all the work
that haa been done along the line of
perfecting arrangements for thiB road
haa been under the old syndicate
agreement, but with the Organization
now completed work will begin in
earnest and with as little delay as
possible. The new company is so far
praotioallv a loeal concern as it ia in
the hands of Vancouver, Victoria and
New Westminster capitalists, with
Alexander Ewing New Westminster,
W. li. Nicol, Vancouver, and J. T.
Hethune, of White Horse, an the first
board of directors.
The new company will operate under both Dominion and Provincial
charters and is the only concern with
power tp run to the international
boundary line. It Is In connection
vith ttie Provincial subsidy that tbe
! only hitch occurs In the way of begin-
uirg active work at once. Tbe Government,however, Btands pledged to
reinstate the. subsidy of 84,000 per mile
for 330 miles which was removed some
time ago, and it is with the definite
understanding that this will .be done
that the organization was   completed.
It is the desire of all interested in
the new company to have it thoroughly understood that the building
of the road is in no sense of the word
a political question, but a business
proposition pure and simple. The
country to be opened up Is oue of the
richest lu British Columbia, and the
benefitB to be derived from thc build-
iug of such a line ia so far reaching as
tu be almost beyond calculation.
The following extract from the official announcement shows the route of
the proposed Hue:
"Application will be made to the
legislative Asacmbly of the Provinoe
of Hritish Columbia     '   "     *   ���

prohibition would be continued,
ANOTHER   CONTINGENT.
at   its next   ses
sion for an act to incorporate a company with power to construct, and
operate a single or double line of railway from the City of Vancouver in
tbe aald Province; thence to the City
of New Westminster; thence crossing
the Fraser River and following the
south bank of said river to Hope;
thenoe following the Coquehalila River
to the headwaters of the Coldwater
River; thence following the said Cold-
water River to a point about twenty
miles from its course; thence in a
southeasterly direction to the west
fork of Otter River; thence following
the Otter River to its junction with
the Tulameen River; thenoe following
the Tulameen Uiver to Princeton;
thence following the Similkameen Diver to Keremeos; thence in a southeasterly direction to a point in the vicinity of Osoyoos Lake, tbeuce easterly
to a point on the Kettle Kiver to Midway ; thence easterly to a point
on the Kettle River lo Midway ; theuce
in an easterly direction to Grand
Forks; and with further po'.Ter to
build, and operate a branch of said
railway from the point where the
muinline ��� thereof leaves said Cold'
water River, following the said Cold'
water River through Nicola Valloy to
Nicola Lake; and with lurther power
to build, and operate a branch line
from Otter Flat at the junction of said
Otter and Tulameen Rivers and following the Tulameen River in a south
easterly direction a distance of thirty
miles; and with further power to
build and operate branch lines not exceeding twenty miles in length from
any point or points on the main lino
of said-railway to any point or points
on tho Canadian side of the international boundary line."
Aa soon as tho Provincial houBe
openB it is understood that the pledges
regarding the restoration of the subsidy will be fulfilled and the work of
actual construction will begin immediately thereafter. All flnnnclal diffi-
oultleB have been put out of t��be question entirely by the last arrangement
and by early spring time the grader's
pick will be busy solving the remain
dor of tho problem.
Montreal   Witness   Wants   Canada to

Montreal, Dec.    28.���The   following
is from the Daily Witness;
"It looks as though our Government
ought to be considering whether it
should not offer another mounted regiment or two for the South African
wafr. There is nu doubt that Canada
hns not yet risen to anywhere near

Vancouer, B. C, Dec. 27.--United
States Immigration Commissioner
Healey, in commenting upon and supplementing the report of Terrance V.
Powderly, commissioner generul of
immigration, regarding diseased and
pauper Immigration to the. United
States through Canada on the Pacific
Coast, stated that tho ollicial report
was made up to July 1, the fiscal year
and of course since that time Japanese immigration bat stopped,although
diseased and pauper immigrants continued to get over thu line in splto of
all precautions.
This was the only trouble they had
to deal with at present, and as he
had 350 milea of border landij to look
after betweon British Columbia, and
the State of Washington, he could
not do as effective work as he'could
wish. He believed, however, that
Congress would;take stepa In a short
time which would enable him to copo
satisfactorily with tho trouble. It is
learned from another source that a
special agent of the Government, who
recently completed a searching Investigation for the United States Government into the e.i,.'Minn, is believed to
have reported wholesale violation of
the immigration law and the law
against smuggling, and It is only because such enormous numbers of pauper and diseased Japs and coolie
Chinese have got across beforcuhat
they aro now percolating through
Canada into Washington state in

over Minimi without interruption, and

Jeffries und Ruhlin Fight at Cincinnati May Not Come Off.
New York, Dec. 28.���The Evening
World say.; William A. llrady today announced that the fight between
James J. Jeffries and (Jus Ruhlin,
scheduled to take place in Cincinnati
on February 15, will not be permitted
by.the authorities of that city. Brady
Said that he had received word to this
effect from tbe officials of the club
which was to manage tho affair. This
being the case the bouts arranged for
Jack Root and Tommy Ryan and Ter
r,y McGovern and Kid Lavigne are de-
elared off for the present. It is Bald
that Terry McGovern will now arrange to go to England to fight Ben
Jordan. Relative to the story that
William A. Brady had announced that
the Jeffries-lluhlin fight ut Cincinnati
had boen called off, Mr. llrady said
to the Associated Press tonight that It
waR absolutely untrue. He stated
that he never said anything that
would lead to such a suggestion, and
that the fight would come off as previously urrauged.
The famous Triune mine near Ferguson in the Lardeau country has
made a record for itself in a recent
Bhipment of ore to the Trail smelter.
In speaking of it the Lardeau Eagle
says:
Messrs. Lade and Ferguson experienced some difficulty in getting the
ore away from the Landing, the
two big C. P. R. boats came in from
Arrowhead after it, instead of one,
thus increasing the cost of freight
820. This amount of a refund will
be asked for. There were 1,407 sacks
of ore left when the shipment reached Trai'., 11 sacks having heen lost
track of between the Triune mine
and the Landing.
The gross weight of th? shipment
was 101,020 lbs., a little over 80 tons.
The deduction for moisture, 7.3, and
the weight of the sacks, 4,081 lbs.,
left the net weight of the ore 145,848
lbs., approximately 72),; tone. The
extreme moisture of the ore, thus preventing a thorough cleaning out of
tho sacks, leaves a net weight much
smaller than otherwise would De.
Tho gold values iu this shipment
exceeded all expectations, running
some 87 more than in the first shipment of 20 tons, which went 812 to
the ton.
The exect proceeds from this shipment is aa follows: 71.280 ozs, of
gold at 820 per ozs, for 05 per cent.,
81,354.43, or an assay of .08 ozs, per
ton.
24,470.07 ozs., of silver, at. 04 cents
per oz., for 05 per cent., 814,877.80,
or an assay of 33(5.40 ozs. per ton.
73,408 lbs. of lead, at 2.484 per 100
lba., for 00 per oent., 81,043.45, or an
assay of 501. per cent., per ton.
The total gross values, then, were
817,874.1)8. The C. P. R. charges, Including transportation from Thomson's,Landing to Trail smelter, and
tieatment, amounted to 81,000.30.
Thus the net proceeds were 810,271.38.
Remarkable us these values are, it
must be remembered that the co.t of
transportation from the Triune mine
to Thomson's Landing has still to be
reckoned with. This, alone, amounts
to 827.5(1 a ton, thus tbe total cost of
freight and treatment amounts to
the enormous figure of 840.50 per
ton.
And this Is not all.    The Provincial
Government tax, of  2 per   cent.,   hits
Lardeau's high grade ore pretty hard
This   tax amounted to 1877.SO, a neat
sum in itself, on so small a shipment.
New York,where he had been making
arrangements in connection with the
sale of the largo quantities of copper
matte now arriving daily in that city
from the company's smelter at Graud
Forks, B. C. He states that the copper market is steady, and as the increase of production has fallen two per
cent, below the average, he believes
that the price will be higher within
the next two years. He says the Granby Smelter Company has signed a
three years contract to deliver monthly 700 tons of copper matte to New
York, and 200 tons to Liverpool. Mr.
Graves was reticent as to values but
being pressed stated that the filling of
these contracts would reach a yearly
total of from 81,-500,000 to 82,000,000.
He confirmed the rumor that the Granby amelter, the Knob Hill, Old Iron-
Bides and Grey Eagle would be amalgamated early in the new year, the
new company to be kuown as the
Granby Consolidated Mining.Smeltlng
and Power Company, with a capital of
$15,000,000, 82,500,000 treasury and
812,500,000 allotted pro rata to the
shareholders of the four companies
above named. Mr. Graves also made
the important announcement that the
enlarged company would probably pay
a dividend aa soon as re-organization
is completed.

COMMERCIAL MEN MEET.
Toronto, Dec.28.���The twonty-eighth
annual meeting of the Commercial
Travelers' Association of Canada, was
held here yesterday afternoon. During the past year the membership haa
ibcroasOd from 4,357 to 5,140. The ro-
celptB of thc j'ear were 87,403,28.
Owing to the limited number who indicated thoir intention of taking out

freighter ever built in Chicago will
be lauuehod Saturday In tho yards of
the Chicago Ship Building Co. on the
Calumet River. The new boat Is 242
feet long _,nd lias a capacity of 2,500
tons. Its first cruise will be to Hamburg, Germany, laden with grain.

Slocan, B. C, Des. 28.���Oro blilp-
ineiitH from this division havo passed
thc 2,500 ton maik for thc year, the
most substantial Bhowing on record.
Two properties,the Arlington and Enterprise, aro both over the 1,000 tun
scoro, and eight other shippers figure
up tho balance.
Last wcek'B shipments were 150 tons
from the Arlington and 25 tonB from
the Enterprise, making the former's
total 1,851 and the latter's 1,045. The
Arlington Is making use of 30-ton cars
and is sending its output to the Nullum smelter.
Whllo .he past year has been uncommonly good, the outlook for 1(101
is much moro encouraging. All the
old shippers will bo retained on the
list, with tbe certainty of the Chap
leau, Tamarac, Phoenix, Speculator
and Iron Horse being added to tho
list.
There are several properties in the
camp that would be put on a shipping
basis with a very little expenditure of
money, and the outlook Is such as to
bring them Into line. The means of
access has been provided, aa there is
a good wagon road up Ten Mile,
Springer and Lemon Creeks. Transportation charges have been reduced
and thc general coBt of mining is
lower than in former years, whllo the
chances of gain are on thc increaae.
Calgary, Dec. 25.���(Delayed)���The
most destructive fire in the history of
Calgary raged today ond wrought
damage variously estimated, but it
will not be below 81f)0,000. Several of
the finest business structures fell a
prey to the devouring flames. Notably the Clarence, the Eau Claire and
the new Norman blocks. The Are
broke out about 2 o'clock in the morning in the basement or lower story of
the Clarence block and In a few minutes the huge three-story stone building was enveloped in amoke and
flames. The fire brigade was early on
the scene and worked heroically
through hampered for time by tho
poor supply of watei. It was soon
aeen that tbe block must go and so
great waa the heat that the Eau Claire
block on the eaat side occupied by the
Calgary Clothing Company and the
Norman block on the west, occupied
by Glanvllle nnd Robertson, for their
immenso drygoods business, were also
ablaze.
The Clarence block wns soon gutted
nnd the whole of the front wall and
the tower fell. The block was full
of tenants and much anxiety was
felt for a few minutes as to the .safety
of those in the third story. All escaped, though nothing whatever from
the upper stories was saved. The Calgary Wine and Spirit Co had just got
In an immenae stock of liquors, thus
adding no little to tho fury of the
Humes which finally secured an entrance to the Norman block. The Alberta Music Co. lost their stock of pianos und organs. The Watts Co., cigars, was one of the first to go up in
smoke. G. II. Mitchell's stock of groceries and chinaware

When the new century opens the
sign of the Canadian Bunk of Commerce will hang on the premiBcs now
occupied by the Nelson branch of tbe
Bank of British Columbia. These two
big financial institutions have been
merged into one under the name of
the later. The shareholders in the
Bank of B. C. received shares in the
Bank of Commerce together with a
cash payment for the good will. All
the branches of the Bank of B. C. will
continue to transact business under
tbo new name. The amalgamation
will not affect in the slightest degree
the relations of the Bank and its
officers with the customers and correspondents of the Bank of British Columbia,except by placing at their disposal the services and support of a
much larger institution. Ail existing
arrangements with their customerswlll
continue in force, and all outstanding
obligations of, and drafts, cheques
and credits upoi, the Bank of British
Columbia, will be duly honored and
protected by the Canadian Bank of
Commerce.
The circulation of the Bank of B. C.
will be retired as it is received and
the notes of the Bank of C.mmerou
substituted. The       nmalgama*ion
makes a very powerful Institution
with a capital second only to that of
the Bank of Montreal, and more
branches than any other bank in Canada. They reach from London to the
Yukon, from Quebec to New Orleans
and from" Seattle to New York.
The Bank of British Columbia has
six offices on the Pacific Coast and
four in the interior of British Columbia, with its head office In London.
The Canadian Bank of Commerce,
with head office in Toronto, has fifty-
live branches in Canada, including
those at Dawson, White Horse and
Atlin, and branches in tho United
States at New York, New Orleans,
Skagway and Seattle. The whole of
these sixty-nine branches and the
office in London will henceforth be
carried on by the Canadian Bank of
Commerce, the general management
being centered at Toronto. The
capital of the Bank of British Columbia is ��000,000 (82,'120,00); that of the
Canadian Bank of Commerce, 18,000,���
000. The capital of the bank after
amalgamation will be 88,000,000. with
a rest or surplus fund of (3,000,000.
Tbo resources of the bank from capital, rest, deposits and circulation will
exceed 855,0(10,000.
It will be gratifying to the customers of the bank here to learn that Mr.
Orange V. Holt and the other members of the present staff wil! continue
iu charge of the bank's interest here.
One of the most important quea-
tions that will come before the new
Council whieh will be elected three
weeks from yesterday, is the lighting
of the City. Everyone from its greatest champion to its strongest reviler
has now acknowledged that the present plant will havo to be abandoned
ns it is thoroughly inadequate to
properly light tho   City.
Of course there is no saying what
the new Council will do, but the wny
the matter is being figured out by
the civic authorities is briefly as follows:
The City has staked water rights
near the upper falls on the Kootenay
River. The application for this water
will be granted as there ia more water there than a dozen companies could
monopolize. A mill site hns been
staked on tbe south side of the river
as the Bonnington Falls Power and
Light Company haB corralled all the
available sites every place else. In
fact they had made application for the
very Bite the City is after and just here
la going to be a bit of trouble between
the two. The company applied for
the land under the Mineral Act which
provides for the consideration ol the
application sixty days after it is received. Tho City applied under the
Water Clauses Act, which has a thirty
day limit and ns a consequence the
City's application, although filed a
considerable time after the company's,
will be considered some days before.
Thc company will probably object to
the City's claim and that's what will
cause the trouble. The City should
know what Is going to huppen by the
middle of January.
Provided the City gets the water
and land, and the new Conncil thinks
it is a good scheme and the ratepayers
vote the money a plant will be installed at the head of the falls and the
City will secure its lighting from It.
It is piobable that a 2,000 li. p. plant
will be put in as it costs very little
more than a 1,000 h. p. plant, and tho
nature of the gruuud allows of little
room for a power house su the machinery w'ill have to be concentrated as
much as possible. Plans and estimates
will shortly be prepared and It is likely that a proper plant can l.e installed
for 8100,000 or 8125,000. This would
provide some 1,500 horse power more
than the City would use for lighting
so there woald be a large amount of
power to sell at a rate that would
give tho City a considerable revenue.
It would take at least a year to complete the work. Some parts of the
present plant could be disposed of and
the station used as a substation.

MAYOR VS. ALDERMEN.
"Peace aud Oood Will" was the
title of a leading article in Tho Free
Pre6S, Wiunipeg, a few mornings ago.
In an adjoining column was the report of a meeting of a committee of
the Council, at which one porson addressed another as "a liar" and "a
contemptible d���d scoundrel." Sueh
are peace and good will as understood
in Winnipeg.
Dear, delightful Victoria. It is reported from that city of ease and contentment that they have nothing to
drink but whiskey, and nothing to
do but. drink it. And in this, as in all
other  things,    Vancouver   is   jealous.
Wo think it a pity there should be a
contest for the Mayoralty between two
candidates whose viewB, purposes, and
aims have been so nearly in harmony
aa thoae of Aid. McKillop and Mr.
Fletcher. So far as a question of policy is involved, there is nothing to
choose between them; there is no apr
parant indication that their methods
are likely to be so dissimilar as to
challenge difference in the minds ol
their respective adherents. One will
make as good a Mayor as the other,
and either will prove acccptal'.e tothe
mass of the people. But a great mistake will be made if the ratepayers
allow themselves to be persuaded into
the belief that a board of Aldermen
should be elected whose only duty it
��� is to bold up the hands of the Mayor.
He may be an excellent Mayor, and
may stand on an excellent platform ;
but because of these, nor for any other
conceivable reason, are Aldermen to
bo olected who are merely to act aB
his toolB. If this ia the only purpose
they arc expected to serve, we would
do better without Aldermen at all; it
would be much simpler to elect the
Mayor with the understanding that he
was to do as he chose, without even
the appearance of restraint.
Something of this kind has been
suggested,and no doubt many in their
innocence and simplicity will agree.
But the suggesl'.on is not in accordance with the spiiit of our municipal
institutions, nor in accordance with
the British love of independence at
the back of them. We may have demigods for Mayors���we had one this
year, but ho is disappearing with the
century���but with all their wiadom
and virtues it ia necessary to associate with them men who have mlnda
of their own and who have tbe courage, when occasions arise, to stand by
them. Our Aldermen are not to bo
dummies. The time for that has passed in Nelson, never to return. As
our Mayors are selected from the common Block, lt may be concluded with
aafety that six Aldermen are wiser
than one Mayor. But though all of
them should be fools, they uro not
sent to thc Council merely to say ditto
to the Mayor's yea or nay. That is
not what Aldermen are elected for,
and it will be a bad day for the City
when we aot as if it were.
We should elect the beat man available as Mayor. He cannot be too good
for the position. He should be a
peraon of sound judgment,of undoubted personal integrity, and zealous in
the public interest. But so also should
be each one of the Aldermen. They are
just aa Important us thc Mayor, have
in aubatance the same duties to perform, and are equally rcBponoible.
We are expected to chooBe them bo-
cauae of their fltneaB, und when choa-
ei they are expected to justify the
confidence reposed in them. They aro
really the bone and sinew of the municipal budy. It would lie a thousand
tlmcB better to elect a fool or knave
aa Mayor, with a capable Council
around him, than a fool Council to
yield acquiescence with a capable
Mayor. Between the two, thu munlul-
pallty'B chief dependence ia and necessarily always munt, be un the Counoil.
We can aiTord to take chances with
the Mayor, but not with the Aldermen. ___________
The Saturday Kevlew edition of the
New York Times Ib severe on the
literary converaation of the day. In
fact It Bays there ia no such converaation deserving thu name. "Have you
read So-and-soV" "(Yes) (No)."
"Did you like if," "(Yea) (No)."
"(So did) (Neither did) I." Thut
comprisea all of It In moat cases.
When opinions aie ventured they nre
those of the reviewers. "Conversation,
when it hns a broad Idea behind It, il
too often the product of a perusal of
the criticism of the book. And at|the
highest, fiction, which is the topic of
jnost ao-culled   literary conversation,
PRESERVE THE DEER.
Editor Miner:
Sir,���Allow me through your valued
paper to suggest tbat if at all desirable that the deer should be preserved, a Provincial constable should be
detailed to visit at uncertain intervals
the only winter range for deer
throughout the Arrow Lakes, that
lying between the Fire Valley and
Deer Park. From all parts of the district tbe deer travel to winter here
on this small range when the snow is
deep. Most of the deer are slaughtered, during close season. Settlers
should be taught tbat deer are not to
be killed to be fed to hens. Colville
Reserve Indians should be taught not
to kill deer for skins and fat alone.
Bear traps should not be set at deer
licks during the summer, and the
continued use of dogs should be put a
stop to. Speaking from tive years experience on the lakes, fully 75 per
cent of the deer of this district have
been destroy-.d during the last four
years.    Yours truly,
PROTECTION.

IN JAPANESE HOTELS.
Ikoea   An   lieft   In   ��������   Area,   wa��
__eiI> Uv. ��_llho����- Fa.hlon.
It Is a novel affair, even to tha traveled
foreigner. The entrance Is usually a little area, which Is practically an extension
of the street or sidewalk and defined by a
low platform or raised floor. From thia
modest eminence the proprietor and those
about him greet the new guest with profound bowB, their foreheads touching tha
tool repeatedly. There is no showy office, no high desk, no lordly clerk, no big
book for the guests' autograph���only a
little ti.ble about 14 inches high, with an
Inkstone, suggesting that here the accounts are mad* up. But the guest may
not yet ascend. His shoea must be left
iu the area. That explains in shoeshop
appearance.
Quick servants promptly assist in tha
correction of his understandings, bringing sandals or slippers If he is onsup-
plied; then, preceded by his traveling effects, he is led to his apartment. He ob-
aerves that the stairs are without rails
and that the female servant* make their
ateep accent much as a child would, often using their hands as well as their
feet Ours Is a "ten mat" room���that is,
it requires ten mats, each three feet by
all feet to cover, or rather to form, the
floor. The mat is made of woven straw,
���verlaiil with ordinary matting and fln-
l��ln'd with a firm border. Being aoft and
yielding under the foot, It ia comparatively noiseless.
The furniture? A dainty doll table 12
Inches high, a little lacquer tray with a
t)ny teapot and two email cupa and saucers, two floor cushions and a wall acroll
���that Is all. The sole heating apparatus
Is a box of ashes with a nest of coals.
Beside the coals Is a teakettle. Between
ua and the snowstorm raging outside
there Is, first, a wall of sash filled with
translucent paper, then a narrow hallway, then a gliding sash filled with
glass. A finger thruBt on either of three
(Ides and your every movement is visible
from without. Locks? What good? All
the doors are paper and work In slides,
and all the windows are doors.
Everything slides. Do you w_nt the
servant? Clap your hands smartly, and
then comes from somewhere above, below or around a "H-i-i-i-i-i-i," and sandaled feet are quickly sliding toward
you. At the sound of the eliding door
you only look to see her or him approaching you on sliding knees; at least, so it
seems. Your commands are received by
the polite waiter in that attitude, and
tho disappearing is after the fashion of
tho approaching. Dispose of yourself as
best you can. The little platform at the
end of the room, with your roll of rugs,
may give you relief from standing or ait-
ting on your heela.
I have been fortunate enough thuB far
to be entertained where a chair could be
had for the aBking. But when one comes
i to moals, which aro served In one's room,
it is quito a condescension from the foreign chair to the little Japanese table.
"Foreign food" nlso is t�� be found In the
beat hotels���beefsteak, chicken, butter,
eggs, potatoes. One can get on very well
with such "hardships" if they are not
(polled In the cooking. ��� Northwestern

THE TOWN
A ball will bo given on the 'steamer Hossland at Arrowhead this evening, lt is given by the ollieers of the

Tunstall, jr., largely interested in
mines in British Columbia, is down
from Nelson and registered at the
Butler.
Mr. F. L. Dougherty, late of the
White Star Line, has been appointed
as Freight Clerk on the steamer
Moyie, and took charge of his duties
laBt evening.
Good progress is being mnde upon
the station and otlice which is being
erected at Kaslo for tho C. P. K. It
will be completed during the early
part of February.
R. Iteisterer & Co., brewers, of Nelson and Moyie City, have purchased
five lots in Ferguson, Ii. C., upon
which they will erect a modern brewery next spring.
Tho Nelson Wine Company, owing
to the request of patrons who enjoyed and profited from the Christmas
drawing, has decided to have a New
Year's drawing which is now in progress.
David Christie and Frank White
were brought to the Provincial jail
here from Rossland and were found
guilty of vagrancy. They were sentenced to two and three months imprisonment respectively.
All those in thc City interested in
the game of hockey are requested to
attend the meeting at the Hotel Hume
at 8 o'clock this evening. The weather promises that practices can commenced early next week, and urange"
meats for play will be made tonight.
The West portion of liaker Street,
which leads to the new C. P. B.
yards and which of late has been in
an exceedingly bad condition for
traffic, is to be planked at once. The
planus have already been placed upon
the ground and the City workmen will
shortly be put to work laying them.
This is how a Seattle paper gets
Frank Peters mixed up: VI. V. Peters, until recently general freight

a month or six weeks ago, and it is
now in readiness to receive the minister and his 'amily.
The small house which will be used
as an operating station at Five Mile
Point aud which was erected in town
was moved there today. As soon as
the passenger servico is inaugurated
over the line, an operator will be
placed in charge. The C. P. 1!. will
install a signal system at that point

it is the point where the S. F. & N.

Beginning with the new year and
the use of the Union depot for the arrival and departure of all trains the
Tramway Company will inaugurate a

J. n. Bowes, a well known attorney
of Nelson, II. C, is In Spokane for
the holidays, says the Spokesman-
Review. When asked about conditions in the upper 1'rovineo since election, he said: "Nelson has scarcely
known herself since the Hritish Columbia elections. Before the Martin
Government was turned down every

move of any description. Now there
Is a rush of money into investments in
real estate and mines, and thc town
has taken an upward turn generally."

ONE THOUSAND A DAY.
What the Vanderlnlt Estate Will Pay
to New York City.
New York, Dec. 28.���The estate of
the late Cornelius Vanderbilt will be
taxed on SHI,001),000 of personal property next year. The tax rate is 82.24
per 81,000. So the Vanderbilt heirs
will pay 1885,000 into the public funds
next year.
In the tax lists of last year and of
1898 Cornelius Vanderbilt's taxable
personal property was assessed at
8400,000. On this amount he paid
taxes of soinctl'ing mure than 88,000.
So the new assessment will profit
the city (850,000 a year, or almost 81, ���
000 a day.
President Fritner of the Tax Department said: "I do not mean to
say that the assessment of 8400,000 on
the personal taxable property of Mr.
Cornelius Vanderbilt was an incorrect
one. But I say that after his death
we have learned that at the time of
his death his holdings of personalty
taxable under the law amounted to
something over 810.000,000. In all.
the Vanderbilt estates are assessed
more than 825,000,000."
HARMSWORTH   TALKS.
Says England is Not Criticising Action of United States.
New York, Dec. 28.���Alfred Ilirrjt,-
worth, the editor an 1 owner of the
London Daily Mail, who has just arrived here, says In nn interview:
"There is uo adverse criticism on the
part of the Knglish of the amendments to the Hny-l'aun_efote treaty
so fur as I have ascertained. You are
going to build the canal, pay for it,
and why should you not control it.
If we dug a canal wc would certainly
expect to control it,and I think America looks at the matter in much tho
same light.
Referring to the insurrection in
the Philippines he said: "The Germans are watching the course events
arc taking, thinking that America
will finally give up the job as a bad
proposition and then they expect to
come and finish mattors. France is
also watching closely the trend of
affairs over there."
TWO SHOUT STORIES.
Colonel Otter, lender of the Canadian contingent, who was in London,
after doing such splendid work at the
front, has been in the army nearly
forty years, and fought in several actions before he went to South Africa,
commanding his regiment in the
"Pilgrimage Riots" of Toronto, and
In the Hi and Trunk Railway riots at
Belleville a year or two later. He
was present through out thc Fenian
raid, and '.vus in command of the successful ree -.lnnisnnee against tho Indian chief, Poundmakcr, as well as
in the action at Cut Knife Creek,
which prevented the chiefs joining
hands with Big Hear and assisting
half-breed Kiel.
IN TUB PHILIPPINES.
Fourth Infanliy Keeping the Insurgents nn the Run.
Manila, Dec. 28.���A pushing campaign has been carried on by the
Fourth Infantry during December in
Northern Mindanao. The town of
elemeniz was captured, as was also
the insurgent stronghold iu the mountains further inland. The coast town
of Langarin was captured by a detachment of a hundred troops who scattered the enemy in that vicinity,
killing and capturing several. A
portion of the troops thus engaged
have returned to Cagayan and joined in the campaign which Brigadier
General Kobbe is personally prosecut
ing. General Mac-Arthur's proclama
tion is resulting in many arrests of
alleged insurgents In Manila and vicinity, a few of those taken in custody
being prominent. One prisoner was
shot dead and another wounded in at
tempting to escape.

wholly the fault of the police for considerable blame attaches to the meu
from whom the goods aro stolen. In
the first case when an article is stolen
it is not reported to the police until
some time after, whe.i it is too late to
capture the perpetrators. Again thc
police state that many of thc merchants leave articles hanging at the
front of their store until quite late In

for theft to be committed.
