TROUBLE
There Was More of It at the
City  Council   Last
Night.
The Mayor   and   Aldermen
Have a Heated Debate.
TheMcCulloch Matter Came
Up for Discussion by
Council.
The mayor and aldermen had another set-to at last night'* oonnoil
meeting. It came after n very peaceful session, during which business was
transacted, and wus followed hy another session of penoefnines". But
while the set-to lasted it was warm.
Thn mayor insisted that in his power
he wuh supreme, while others of Ibe
enoiioil equally as vehemently that he
was but the servant of tho conncil,
placed in liis positiou to curry cut the
wishes of the council; not to dictate tc
them nr to oouutermaiid orders issued
hy them.
The double began with the introduction of the following resolution,otTored
by Aid. Hall and soconded by Aldermnn Irviue:
"Resolved, That nil publio workB
already or horeufter ordered by the
oity council and the purohuse of all
lnbor nnd material therefor be pliiced
directly under tho control of the public works committee, and that nil instructions given tho oity engineer be
iu writing and signed by n majority
of the publio works committee."
The mayor had beeu expecting some
suoh attack and was prepared for it.
He was the lirst to speak on thu resolution, which speech, however, wns
out of order, as he nfterwurds rnled in
regard io the resolution.
"I might state (or the information
ef the counoil," snid the mayor, a*
coou as he hnd finished reading the
resolution, "that I believe this matter
may ns well come to a head now us at
any other time. This resolution Is
clearly at varianco with the section of
the Municipal Clauses Act referred at
the last meeting of tbe oonnoil. The
Miiivoi- hns unrestricted authority to
direct and order the oity'g business.
This resolution would take it out of
thn hands of the mayor and place it in
the hands of the publio works committee. I insist, however, npon maintaining my rights, whioh nre as they are
outlined in the Mnmeipnl Olanses Aot.
I havo taken the preoaution to proouie
fruin the city solicitor his opinion as
to the interpretaton of the section of
the act referring to tbe dnties ol the
mayor and he bear* me out in my
contention."
"I might state, Mr. Mnyor," said
Aid. Hall, when the mayor had finished, "that I hnve also seen the oity
solicitor and he inform* me entirely
differently.''
The muyor then produced a letter
signed by P. E, Wilson, oity solioitor,
111 whicli Mr. Wilson repeated the
words of the act and stated that in his
belief the mayor had power to direct
the couduct of city olllcials and tho
method nf management of the oity's
business.
"Well, Mr. Mayor," asked Aid.
Arthur, "has not this council power
to pass a bylaw defining the |Owors
and dntios of the various committees
aud city officials?"
"The council hns no power," lepeat-
M the mayor, "to pass a bylaw that
would take from the mnyor the unrestricted management aud control of
the city's business and direotion of
���he city's employees."
"Section 60, subsection 10, will not
if* tl"lt interpretation," replied
Aid. Arthur. "It does not, however,
give us power to take out of the hands
of the mayor the dnties of a oity's
��bief executive, whioh aro to conduct
'be city's business a* ordered by the
conncil."
"But there mnBt be a head to the
oity I  affairs," answered   the  mayor,
and you cannot, delegate that power
tonnyon* else."
th in tl18 mayor has unrestricted an-
'bority he can discharge an uflloial,
torn,    said Aid. Arthur.
He ,,Rn oertainlv suspend an official, replied the mayor, "hut he
���Ml report to tho oity council, which
"����� might reinstate Buoh official. "
In oaf�� an offlobl is discharged or
"""Poiidod by the mayor and reinstated
���'�� i !i.connoi|." "Hked Aid. Iiviue,
oflhd im    mB>'or nKnin *nspend   snch
''He certainly oan," replied the
�����yor  wuh   n,noh  emphasis.     "He
oan keep on suspending him uh long as
he wnuts to."
"Tho law does uot say so," replied
Aid. Irvine, equally omphatioally.
"Perhaps yon wnnt to mnko a test
onne," exolnimod the mayor. "Yon
can do so if you desire, I will give
yon the opportunity."
Aid. Irvine again nttempted to speak
but the mayor was angry olear
tlnough.
"What have I done," he exulaimed,
"thnt such a resolution a* this should
bu introduced. I will tell you now
finally that if yon begin tbis fight I
will onrry it as far as 1 oan so with
it."
Aid. Hall then attempted to quiet
matter* down a bit and assured tbe
mayor that It was not with any intention of oausing trouble that be introduced his resolution.
"As n member of the pnblio work*
oomittoe," snid he, "I feel I nm responsible to tho people for the manner
iu whioh the publio work is done. Tbe
work during the past week has been
inteifered with, and if w i bave uo
power to prevent this interference and
no authority whatever. I want the
peoplo to know that I oan, to no extent, be held responsible for the manner in whioh tbis work is done. A
week ago the publio work* committee
asked the the city enginaer to give
tbem ii;.inei upon eertnin street work.
The city engineer wns informed shortly afterwards by the mayor that he no
longer hnd'nnythiug to do with street
work, and for that reason we were unable to secure from bim the desired information. In that oase the mayor
hnd interfered with the order* of the
oonnoil."
The mnyor then oxplnined his actions in regard to Engineer McCullocb.
There hud been more or lets friotion,
he said, between himself and Mr, Mc-
(Jullonh in refereuoo to road work, and
ho had placed Assistant Engineer Dill
in oburge of thnt work and had given
Mr. MoCulloch supervision of the sewer
and water works.
Aid. McKillop then took a hand in
the frny. He wns of the opinion that
tho mnyor did not properly interpret
the net rein11 ni: to the duties of himself and the council. He thought, bow-
over, that the proper way to regulate
these duties was by bylaw and not by
resolution of tho conniol. He read
from the Municipal Glauses Act and
showed that in tbe contention be wa*
right, und during the balance of the
scs-.ion there seemed to be no wish to
arena the resolution, although tbe d*.
initii wa* continued. Aid. MoKillop
oalled the mayor's attention to the faot
tint thern was a vast difference between "directing the management"
nud Ihe "manngoment" of the city
ulfnirs.
Aid. Irvine then addressed the oonnoil. He referred io the Motion of the
mayor iu removing Mr. MoCulloch
from street work. The pre** had stated, he said, thnt Mr. McCullooh had
been suspended. He had asked the
mayor about it and bad heen told that
Mr. MoOullooh had not been suspended. He had asked Mr. McOnlloeb and
lhat gentleman bad informed biro th"t
he wan pructically nnder auspeneon.
Tho people on the street were talking
about it and it wa* in everybody's
mouth. They were also accusing the
member* of tbe oonnoil of being bulldozed by the mayor. He was tired of
this comment everywhere and at all
iiine-i and wanted to have some kind
of an understanding. He wanted to
know if the mayor hnd authority to
countermand order* of the conncil given to the oity engineer or anyone else.
He waB anxious to know, too, just
what the dnties of the publio works
oommittee were. If the oonncil had
no power to direct the method of doing tho city's work he oonld not see
that there wns any use of Buch a oommittee. If it bad tbi* power, he
wnnted to know it.
"In this connection," "aid Aid.
Irviue, "I want to any that the obair-
raan of tbe publio work* oommittee
has prepared, at tbe request of tbe
flnanoinl committee, this.���"
"I will rule tbat ont of order,"
broke in the mayor.
"How can you rule it out of order
before yon know what it is?" naked
Aid. Irvine.
"Well, I don't think It has anything
to do With this matter," replied the
mayor, "but yon can lead it if yon
want to."
But Aid. Irvine had taken hi* seat
and declined lo go further with hi*
remark*.
The mayor snggested that Aid. Morrison and Wilson had not yet expressed
their views.
'Yon told u* nt the last meeting,"
answered Aid. Wilson, "that only tbe
ohaiimnn of the committees oonld
speak. For that reason I have nothing
to Bay."
Aid. Morrison said he agreed with
Aid. McKillop, that a bylaw should be
prepared defining thu dnties of the oity
offioials and various oommittee*.
The mayor then ruled tbe resolution,
which nnd oaused all tbe trouble, ont
of order, and as tbere wa* uo appeal
from hi* decision tbe matter wa* dropped.
Tbe aldermen then indulged ln a
long disou8son of the finanoe* of the
oity ns they referred  to  publio works.
Aid. Irvine showed thnt in order to
do nil of tho work contemplated this
vear $85,000 wonld be needed, whereas
only -f i .'..odd had heen set aside for that
onrpose. Aid. MKillon, ohairman of
the financial committoe, finally assnr-
ed him thnt he wonld be looked after
nnd the public work* chairman wa*
satisfied,
A resolution wa* passed, moved by

London, April 24.-11:15 p. m.���
The War onion today ianed the following from Lord Roberta:
"Bloemfontein, April 94.���Oeneral*
Brabant and Hart yesterday turned tbe
position occupied by tbe Boer*, wbo
tried to prevent their moving northward, and got into heliograph coin
monioation with Col. Dalgetty, commandant of tbe beseiged garrison at
Wepener, who reported all well.
"Oeneral Brabant baa three wonnded and one missing. Three were
wonnded on tbe previous day. Tbe
Border Regiment had  seven wonnded.
"At 1 p. in. yeaterday Brabant and
Hart were eight mile* south of Wepeuor. Thu Eleventh Division, nnder
Oeneral Pole-Oarew and Oeneral
French's two brigade* of oavalry
reaohed Tweed Coluk yesterday afternoon without having met serious opposition,
'Heliogrnphio coniiminiciition has
heen established with Oeneral Rundle.
A patrol of tbe Seventh Dragoons, nnder Lieutenant Jenkins, whioh wa*
reported mining yesterday, ha* rejoined Oeneral Frenoh'* camp, with tbe
exoeptloo of Corporal Taylor and Pri
vate Cook, who are believed to be
wounded and prisoner*.
"The monnted infantry under Oeneral Ian Hamilton, ha* occupied tbe
water work* at Hamas Post. As tbe
enemy are holding the neighboring
bill*, in some strength, the Ninth Division, consisting of Oeneral Smitli-
Dorien's and Gensral MaeDonald's
brigades ha* already been despatched
to support Hamilton.
"Oeneral Maxwell's brigade, formerly Oeneral Chermside's, of tbe Seventh Division, yesterdny moved oust-
wrd and seized tbe hill* covering the
wagon bridge over tbe Modder River at
grans Kraal, an important communication, muoh naed by tbe Boers during
the last three weeks. Onr only casualty waa Private llriini, New South
Wale* Mounted Rifles, taken prisoner. "
London, April 24.���An olllcial list of
British losses at Wepener from April
nth to 18th show: Killed, fonr officers
and 18 men; wonnded, 14 officer* and
80 men.
Maseru, Basntoland, April 24.���The
Boers severely uttaoked Colonel Dal-
getty'* northern position faoing Bok-
puoil Ridge at 10 o'olookjjthi* morning, bringing four gnu* into aotion,
nnder whose fire tbey made a deter;
mined advanoe.
Tbe Hritish returned a heavy fire,
befoie whioh tbe Boers reooiled. Afterward they extended across the flats and
maintained a continnona long range
fueilade for eomo hour*. Firing was
beard in the direotion of Dewetsdorp,
but there wa* no sign that the British
relief column in that quarter bas advanced further.
The natives report that another British foroe ha* been detaohed from
Bloemfontein. If so the position of
the BoerB around Wepener i* preoari-
ous.
London, April 25.���5 a. m.��� The report* tbat the siege of Wepener baa
been praotioally rai*ed were apparently premature. Tbe Boer attaok upon
Colonel Dalgetty'* northern position,
a* described from Maseru, wa* probably a final attempt to rush the garrison
before securing a aafe retreat, and a*
Colonel Dalgetty successfully repulsed
tbe attack little further anxiety ia felt
on bi* account.
Lord Robert* ha* now apread a net
ol somo 40,000 or more men, and 150
guna, covering the wbole western
semicircle around Wepener, while
Oeneral Hamilton ha* occupied the
watorworka, praotioally witbont opposition. Tbe Seventh Division, nnder
Oeneral Tucker, Msieted by naval
guns, have made a demonstration from
Karree Sidng, the Boer* showing some
opposition. At the same time a brigade
moved out from Olen to take up a
position on a range of hills at Oon.
naadenale. north ol the Modder. The
waterwork* were found unlamaged
with tbe exception of the removal of
the eliding valve* of the pumping
engine*.
BRIEF LOCALS.
Magistrate Crease hnd a diuiik before
him yesterdny who received tho usual
line. He nlso examined Uuisseppo
Mnohello, an Italian, who wns suppo*-
ed to bn insane. Mnohello wuh injured
��ome timo ago nt Lnrdo, having hnd
his skull fractured. Not long ago ho
was oporulcd on and since then he has
been behaving so strangely Hint it, is
supposed the injury has resulted in insanity,
A hope hns beon expressed hy many
of those who will attend the performance of Pinnforo tomorrow night thnt
|the management will exolade all in-
fiuilii from nt loust tho evoniug per-
formannn. This practice of taking
babies in nrms to the theater has proved most objeotionablo to many persons
who have been forced to Bit noar a cry
ing baby during n wholo performance,
The management will Ihorefore do
well to take a firm stnnd in the mutter
and earn thu gratitudu of the publio
who pntronizr the Opera House.
Aooording to several late visitors to
Kaslo, it is the intention there to offer
a fifty dollar cup for n sailing race
tbat is to be one of tbe features of the
(Jueou'n Birthdny oelebration. The cup
will not beoome tho permanent prop
erty of the winner, but like other trophies of that sort will be sailed for
annually. Tbere are several sail bonis
on the lnke that should stand a good
deal of ohunoe of lending the race. It
is hardly probable tbat tbeie are nn indent boats nf one class to mnke a rnee,
but with proper handicapping in the
way of time allowniiceB there is no
reason why n good field should not enter for the oup.
Word wns received iu the oity yesterdny that John Keen, who bns for
snvernl yearB been mining recorder for
tbe Ainsworth mining division, and
Provincial tax assessor, with bead
puartera at Kaslo, had resigned his
qosition. Kor some time Mr. Keen hns
been prominently mentioned as a possible candidate in the Slocan connrty
nnd bis resignation nt this juncture
lends color to the reuort that he will
seek legislative honors. There is no
man in the riding better known or
better liked than Mr. Keen, and anyone wonld have a very hard time
beating him. He is a staunch Conservative nnd nn nut nnd ont opponent
of Mr. Mnrtin. R. P. Green and O. O.
iluiibnnnn are nlso mentioned an passible candidates iu tho same conititnen-
oy.the former as a Cotton man and tbe
latter as an anti-Martin Liberal.
Promler Martin's presence in the
oity nnd John Houston's announced intention of becoming a candidate in the
forthcoming electious have bronght
politics to the front with a jnmp, and
nothing else is talked of on tbe streets.
Nothing seems to bo yet decided concerning any othor oandidate or candidate* in Nelson, but last evening it
seemed to be the appearance that four
men would bn in tbe field, a Liberal,
a Consrevative, Mr. Houston as ,i Cotton labor man and another aB n Martin
man. Various names vere mentioned
in connection with the ditVerent parties. The avowed intention of the
Mniiiniles to put a man in the Hold
ohanged tbe complexion of matters
somewhat, and no doubt hud considerable to do with the talk of both Liberal and Conservative candidates nm
ning. But coalition aud combinations
ar* beiug talked nf and it is impossible yet t.i say what the developments
will be.
Tbe aotion of the oity oonnoil in
granting to John Lapointe and John
Crofts tbe right to uso for briok making olay from tbe bank of Josephine
Street, between Front Street and the
railroad trnck, is being criticised
sevorely by those already in the brick
business in tbis oity, the Nelson Brick
Manufacturing Co., and the West
Kootenay Briuk and Lime Co. These
two linns, it is pointed out, wero oompelled to pnrohase the property upon
whioh was the olay that they use in
making briok, and asked no concessions from the city in conneotion
therewith. Messrs. Crofts and Lapointe, acting for othor parties, were
given, by the oity, olny which it iB
estimated will yield 10,000,000 brick,
thereby placing them iu a better position than those who had to pay for the
olay they use, nnd who nre already established in business and have an output sufficient to supply the demand
It is said, too, that the olay tn be used
by the new brick Him should be retained by the city lor the purpose of
grading from Vernon Street to the
wnter front, and Hint, if it is used for
briok making, other enrtb will bave to
bo hniiled (or grading purposes.
Frank White, who was couvioted on
April 5, for creating a disturbance at
Rossland, and sentenced to pny a line
of (10 and costs amount mg to $7,20,
was released from tbo Provincial jail
yesterday, and strange aB it may seom,
very much against his will. When
White was first sent up he telegraphed
to a brother in Rosslnnd for the money
which would release him. The money
did not come until Monday, when it
was wired to Mr. Poqnetto, of tbo Spokane Falls & Northern, witb the request that it be pnid to the proper authorities. Whon Whit.- was apprised
of this he declined to havo Ills fine
paid, as he had only a few moro days
io remain in jail. In the meantime,
however, the amount had been paid to
the proper official. When White heard
this  he  became  quitu  indignant an.)
demanded that thn in y   be returned
nnd tbat he remain in jail. Warden
Kii/.-Stnbbs wanted to oblige the prisoner and consulted a lawyer as to tbe
proper steps to take in the matter. He
found thnt tho money could not be
returned and tbat the prisoner must
go, and so Informed White. Then
While left tho jail vowing that he had
been ill-treated.

Ottawa, Ont., April 14-Whon the
Mouse met today Mr. McCleary, of
Wei tin ml, cilllod attintlon to the
dynamite explosion nt Wellnnd Oiiunl
and snid that it was the work of some
Yankee scoundrels. Ho also stated
that when the militin in St Catherine* were called out thoro was not
sufficient ammunition on hand. He
was told this and waH also told there
was no ammunition in London or Toronto.
Premior Laurier snid be would have
tbe matter inquired into.
Mr. Gibson, of Lincoln, said he was
in St. Catherines on Sunday and did
not hear any such complaint from tbe
miltin officers, bnt tbat nny nmount of
ammunition on bnnd would not prevent tho act which the soonndrels bad
committed. What was wanted was to
give the superintendents of nil ennuis
power to havo Buspioious parties arretted when walking along the bnnks
or seen around the looks. He attributed the ciiuse of the explosion to men
in Buffalo wbo were afraid of traffic
being diverted from that oity through
tbe proposed erection of elevators nt
Port-Ooborne and Montreal.
Tbe dragging in of the ammunition
story was done for political motives.
Mr. McLean, of East York, suggested
that the Provinoial or Dominion police
foroe should be strengthened along
the Niagara forntier.
Sir Charles Tupper complained that
certain repoits were not yet laid bo-
fore Parliament. It was important
tbat tbey should have been before the
Houae now.
Mr. Clark Wallace, Mr. Bell, of
Pioton, and others there, Buppoited
the view* of the leader ol the Opposition.
Premier Laurier said lhat nil the report* exoept of the Pnblio Works committee would be brought down tin-
week.
Messrs. McMillan and Holmes pointed ont tbnt it was congestion at the
Printing Burean that delayed Hie report*.. Some of the Member* hnd already stated in tho House that the

Ottawa, Ont., April 24.-The British Colombia Government has been repeatedly advised that the Imperial authorities strongly condemn discrimination in Canada against the Japanese,

MR. MARTIN'S MEETING..
There wan never a stronger political
oampaign than that on whioh the Premier of this Province in now fairly
embarked. A man without a paity,
he bas set himself to the tank of making a party. His call to the Premiership was the result of a disgraceful
conspiracy; be surrounded himself
with colleagues of whose abilities,
even of whose characters, not lung is
known, for not one of them had ever
been beard of by more than a very
���mall fraction of the population until
Mr. Martin'* dire necessities, dragged
tbem from obscurity. With hi* freak
Cabinet constructed for the occasion,
he starts ont to persuade tho electors to
oommit to him and it the many delicate and vital interests of a growing
Provinoe for tho next four years.
How he ha* fared in other plaoes wo
need not inquire, other Premiers
have bad friends to give them connto-
nance; Mr. Mnrtin came to Nelson unheralded ; there was no oue to welcome
his coming, and no one to speed bi*
parting. He came and went n verltn-
ble Wandering Jew. Being without a
party or prominent supporters, it be-
oamfl necessary to scour the town for
some one to act as chairman at his
meeting. It is the nnfniling custom in
���nob oase* to put in the chair some
man of influence and good standing in
tbe community, and of prominence io
tbe party of whioh the Premier himself is supposed to be the leader. Mr.
Martin conld not do this. A chairman
was obtained in tbe person of an ex-
Alderman, wbo, however, took pains
to explain in advanoe that he did not
endorse the Premier or his principles.
This was the best tbat could be done
in Nelson for tne Premier of British
Colombia I
He beld his meeting, and then went
on bia way. It wonld be misleading
to say tbat Mr. Mattin was without
friends and sympathisers He ha*
both in Nelson, nnd has had ever since
he oame into prominence at tbe Capital. There is no community of five or
six thousand tbat will not furnish
friend* and sympathiser* to any politician of notoriety, and much the more
profusely jf thnt politician happens to
be olothed with authority, it matters
little how obtained. Mr. Martin had
bi* friend* at tbe meeting. Wo are
quite prepared to beliove that he made
new ones before tbe meeting was concluded, for although uttorly laoking in
magnetism, and bv no mean* a pleasing speaker, he has triok* of the platform that appeal to certain intelligence* and impose on oortnin natures.
He provokod applause on several occasion*, and it mny be exoited genuine
admiration tbat will last until polling
day aud beyond. It is even suggested
tbat ho captured tho ohninnnn and
persuaded him to accept, the nomination an his ciindidul.1. That mny well
be. He would be nu extraordinary
Premier indeed who could not gather
some strength, bowevor unpromising
and unsympathetic tbe Hold might
appear to be. We are ready to believe
tbat Mr. Martin made a number of
vote* at his meeting. Bnt to himself,
old oaropnignor that he is, the absince
of anything like genuine enthusiasm
mnst hnve been extremely chilling. It
ia not neoe����ary now to do more than
remark on his meeting. By mean* of
it be ba* fairly started the ball rolling
in Nelnon and the Kootenays, and it
shall next he in order to consider the
issues that hi* own Premi3rship, his
platform and his singular choice of
colleagues present for settlement.
In Mr. Honston'* paper a grent denl
Of prominence is given to Mr. Martin's
discussion of Mr, Houston at thn Opera
House meeting. From thn report ono
wonld think that Mr. Houston wa* tho
great issue of the campaign. An explanation of thi* choice display of
vanity will be found in the report
itself, whiob oredits  Mr. Martin with
twice uxpiessiiig his uiliiiiiatiou for
that distinguished gentleman and eminent stntesiun.i, the Mayor of Nelson.
"Mr. Houston was a man whom he
admired very much," say* the report.
And in another place, "lie had a great
(ienl ol admiration for tho Houston
character." No donbt ho bas, for th"
Houston obaraotar more nearly approaches hia own than that of any
other person be ha* met in British
Colombia or ia likely to meet. They
ire chips of tbe aame block, although
one !������ so much smaller than the other.
After so much admiration, we are
afraid Mr. Hillyer will find himaelf
supplanted by Mr. Hooaton iu the matter of that  caudidnture.
Even The Victoria Tinin* makes the
mistake of crediting Mr. Smith Curtis
with the "satisfactory settlement of
tho labor troubles" in Southern British Colombia. Doo* our contemporary
not think it woith while to know
what it is talking nhout'. Mr. Curtis
had nothing to do with the settlement
of tho labor troubles in the Slocan,
where there are moro mines than in
all the rest of thiH region outside of it
Hn had nothing to do witb the settlement of the labor troubles in Nelaon.
Ymir, Aiuswortb, and the whole of
East Kootenny dropped into line with
Nelson aud the Slogan. TheBe settlements were effected by the miners nnd
mine owners themselves, without the
intervention of any Government, or
Minister, or Government Commissioner. Mr. Curtis bad something to do
with the setlement of a little trouble
over contraot work in one portion
only of the constituency in whiob he
hope* to be a candidate. Tbat was all.
However considerable it may be regarded, it is very little in comparison
with the settlement made elsewhere,
which affected many mine* more and
whiob also showed the way.
In every election in every Provinoe
there has always been trouble witb the
ballot paper. Let the form be what it
wonld, there were sure to oe mistake*
in tbe marking. A new form is proposed in tbe Bill to Consolidate and
Amend the Election Law for the Dominion, and it is tbe simplest yet devised. Above and below each name
is a broad blaok line, about three-
eight* of an inoh wide. To the left of
tbo space between, close np to tbe
edge, are printed tbe mines of tbe oandidate*, with wbioh together witb a
number 1,8, :i, as the oase may be,residence, and occupation, the entire
apace is filled up. To tbe right is
emptiness. Il appears impos*ible for
the stupidest elector to get outside of
the space tbu* left. It is all open,
tbere being no other mark excepting
tbe broad upper and lower line*.
Mr. Dewdney is spoken of as a oan
didate in Alberni. For the sake of the
Province let us hope the report is true.
It is doubtful if British Oolmubia waB
ever in grenter need of men of ability,
character, and experience than it is at
this moment. To be threatened with
an affliction of such mediocrities and
freaks aa the Beebe* and Ryder* and
Honston* that are tlockiing to tbe
front is enough to make one despair of
honest, reputable government. Thi*
is a time for the best men, not the
politioal soum, and therefore Mr
Dewdney should be welcomed. We
would be pleased to see In bi* oompany meu like Mr. Bsdwell and Mr.
Davis, men of brains nnd character,
who wonld give ns some assurance
that our affairs were to be in capable
bands.
Mr. Martin has by far too many
'real reasons" why Mr. Semlin demanded his resignation. TJp to the
present time be has given six or eight,
each one of wbioh has been in turn tlio
'real reason." By tbe end of the
campaign the number will be so great
that it will bo impos*iblo to reokon
them.
If Mr. Ryder shall decide to stand
for Comox he will have as opponent
Mr. Lewis Mourn u, a lumberer who i*
said to be a very ntrong man in hi*
Ridiug. An opponent of boy's size
ought to be able to dispoae of Mr.
Ryder.
Some of our exchanges write it Mr.
Smith-Curtis. If Smith-Onrtis, what,
pray, is his ;othor name? Or i* it, a*

BURNS BLOCK
Fire Visited the New Premises Yesterday Afternoon.
The Burns Block Damaged
to the    Extent   of
$5,000.
The now brink lilnok of P. Burn* &
Co, wns damaged by llro yesterday
afternoon to the oxtout of noarly
U 000, In addition to this The Tribune Oo. siilVefoil tl slight loss to its
stook uud the Imporinl Hunk wns compelled to eloso 'or the ufternoon beoause of Ihe large amount ot water
chipping throngh into the bank from
The Tribune floor above.
The lire wns discovered about la :!!(>
u. m. it bad originated In ihe cold
Hlornge minis, on the second Hour, and
wa* burning quite lieruoly when the
Are department airiied. Smoke seemed to be oo.niug from evorywhore ond
for a timo the building appeared lo be
doomed. So thick was the smoke in
the interior of the cold stnrago i-ooiub
Unit it wa* with a great deal of dilll
culty the lliemen did anv work. Barney ArobOald, Fred Bradley and
Johnny Campbell, all members of the
department, were overcome and had lo
he carried by their comrades to Ihe
open air, where thoy quickly revived
and returned to work.
Several time* Chief Thompson
thought he had the blaze extinguished
but eaoh time it would he found breaking out in a new spot. Tbe Humes
worked their wny in between tho walls
and found nmob to feed ou thero. The
entire second floor of Ibe bnilding became filled with smoke and the largo
quantities of water thrown upon the
lire soon flooded every portion of the
building. All of the oflloo paper and
book* in P. Burns' oflice on the second
floor wore enrried across the Btieet
and in The Tribune offloe* everything
was covered with oilcloth and loss
prevented in that way.
There waro many volnnteer* ready
to aid in tho work and they assisted
materially iu placing in safety all
goods thut tbe water might spoil and
iu covering the machinery lhat could
not be moved. Aldermnn Will Irvine
took a hand with thn firemen and
worked like a Trojan for the two houis
the lire was in progress.
For Hie firemen it was the worst fire
iu the historv of the city. They worked under greater difficulties thun at
any past lire, because of the dense
smoke which met them wherever it
was necessary to go. They did their
work well, however, and in a creditable manner and wero rewarded later
wilh s oheok from Aid. Blake Wilson,
on behalf of P. Bnrna & Co., for $250.
The greater part of the loss on the
buildiug is on the cold storage plant.
The balance of thu building will have
to be replasteied and iu some portions
reBhingled. The fire will delay the
opening of tbe new plant at least six
weeks and the opouing of the new
store three or fonr weeks. It was the
intention to move from the premises
now occupied hy the retail store today
or tomorrow, and Kirkpatriek it Wilson were to occupy the old stoio nt
once. Tbe lire, thereforo, hinders tho
beginning of the work on thn new
Kirkpatriek-WilBon-Cloments block.
The bnilding wns, of conrse, fully
insured. The stock of The Tribuno Co.
wa* inBurert for $3,000. The loss hers,
however, will ba small.
Tbe Are yenlerday was 'Nelson's first
fire of any pretensions. It demonstrated three things. First, that the fire
department, so far as the men nie concerned, is a most pioflcient one. Second, that in order tn avoid great dain-
ago by water the city should have in
its possession a chemical t>ngine.
Third, that in oase of an exleu*ive
fire, which might havj developed from
yesterday's blaze, the oity would be
without a Bufllcient quantity of hose.*
Chief Thompson decided Inst evening to leavo throe men on watch all
night in ordor lo give immediate
warning in case the fire should break
out 11,'iiin. T. W. Houston. .1. J. Foote
snd J.O.Porter were dologatod for tbat
duly.

PINAFORE TOMORROW.
Nelson'a   Amateur Opera  Now  Ready
for Presentation.
The first dress iehearsal for the opera
Pinafore, to be given in the Opera
House tomorrow night, Friday afternoon and again on Saturday night, was
held last uight. All the prinoipals,
members of tbo chorus and orchestra
and thoso who have taken part m the
management were present and the rehearsal was so successful from every
���tandpoint tbat one of the hest podnc-
tions of amateur opera over given in
the Province is assured. Nelson people
bare very little idea of the elaborate
aoale wioh this most successful of Gilbert aud Sullivan's operns will be produced by tbe local amateurs. A Miner
man waa permitted to view the dresses
and scenery last night aud cnn vouch
for tbe excellence of a part of tbe details. Mr. Halton, the aitist, bas succeeded in painting a very fine scene and
tbe ladies bave taken sufficient interest in tht opera to provide themselves
very attractive dresses, wbich assist in
oompleting a charming scene when
tbey are all on tbe stage together. The
uniforms of tbe ollicers and the sailor
���niti of the men set off the stage to
good advantage. Fonr of the Rocky
Mountain Rangers will be on tbe stage
aa marines with red coats. The musio
showed decided improvement over the
full rcliear-iil of the previons Friday.
The prinoipals were nioie free in th lir
parts aud tbe chorus sbowod au appreciation of its "business"whioh greatly
improves it. After tonight's rehearsal
the curtain will go up on Thursday ou
a performance about as perfect as amateurs ever make it,
Almost all the seats for tomorrow
nigbt's performance have been reserved.
Hmilton, Out, April 24.-Hon. Dr.
