George Hlgelow's reign at the Fire
nail was of short duration. He was
appointed by the Mayor at 11:30 yesterday morning and last evening was
suspended. No one else was appointed in his place and^so far as The Miner eould learn this morning the City
is without a fire chief. Chief Thompson is, however,still making his headquarters at the Fire Hall and in case
of fire will take charge of the brigade
and the men will follow his instructions.
It took Mayor Houston only a short
time to discover that he had put his
foot in it by his action of yesterday
morning. The insurance men were
up in arms und the businoss men of
the City were active In their calls
upon the aldermen and their demands
that something be done at once. The
committee appoiuted by the Council
to inquire into the matter, Aid. Irvine, Arthur and Hall, met last night
and agreed upon a report to the City
Council at its meeting next Monday.
It is understood that thoy will recommend a continuance of the practice
runs and may make some other reeom
mendations, but none of the members
of the committee would say anything
in regard to it.
Mayor Houston was requested hy a
majority of the aldermen this morn
ing to call a special meeting of the
Council nt once. Ho has 24 hours within which to act and if the meeting is
not called within that time a meeting
will be called by the aldermen. At
thiB meeting Chief Thompson will be
reinstated, without a doubt, as it is
understood that all of the aldermen
are agreed upon buoIi action.
In his paper yesterday Mayor Houston said he had suspended Chief
Thompson and had discontinued the
practice runs Bolely from a desire to
economize. How false this statement
was is made evident in tlio editorial
columns of The Tribune this morning. Mr. Houston now claims that
'' Nelson has passed beyond the stage
of a volunteer brigade with a figurehead for chief, and the time hns come
ivhen it should have a trained fireman
in charge of the department and
enough trained men under him to
handle tho city's flro fighting apparatus effectively."
He first says that the City could
not afford a practice run each week
for which fourteen men were paid
$2,50 each. Finding that this would
not go down the throats of the public
he takes another tack and claims that
the City Bhould have a paid department with a high salaried chief. He
discharged Chief Thompson because he
did not believe him competent, and
puts in his place George Bigelow evidently because he believed him to he
a competent officer. When tho Mayor
gets tangled up and pnts hiB foot in it
he generally goes down pictty deep
before he realizes that it is time tu
stop.
"Even admitting that all the Major
Bays in IiIb paper this morning is true,"
said a business mnn this morning, "I
think the public is generally agreed
that his methods arc very coarse. He
says tho time has arrived when Nelson

dulta was abandoned on fire, Nov. 16,

were injured. When the Lanarkshire
arrived here her supplies of food and
water were exhausted.

to Victoria and disgrace himself and
the people he represents in the Legislature there. It is 'John's way' when
he insults upon the streets of Nelson the
city clerk of the City of Vancouver.
It is 'John's way' when he is stopped
in the street by a citizen wIiobo servant he is and tells that citizen, in
answer to a civil question, to 'go to

the way of all arrant despots. He has
about reached his limit uud so far as
City affairs are concerned he will
probably be shorn of his power next
January. Nelson can't afford to keep
him in oflice another year.
The members of the Nelson Volunteer Fire Brigade claim that Muyor
Houston's figures showing the expense
of the department for the past ten
months, which were published in The
Tribune this morning, are misleading. The corrected figures show that
the volunteer members of the brigade
have received during the past ton
months an average of $13.(15 per
mouth. At some fires outsiders wero
called upon to help and they too have
been Included in the monthly payroll.
The amounts paid the volunteers and
the number of men paid since last
January areas follows: .lanunr}', 14
men, $227.50; February, 14 men, $100;
March, 15 men, $122.50; April, 15
men, $208.50; May, 10 men, $200.50;
June, 14 men, $170; July, 10 men,
$207.50; August, 17 men, $287.50; September, 17 men, $300; October, 17 men,
$122.50, or a total of $2,150.50 for 158
men, showing an average per man of
$13.05 per month.
IN A FAMOUS MURDER TRIAL.
Miss Morrison Spent   a Quiet Sunday
in Her Cell.
Eldorado, Kan., Nov. 28.���The
town today wus overcrowded with
people drawn by the trial of Jessie
Morrison, and when court opened this
afternoon the room was crowded to
its capacity. The possibility that the
taking of evidence would begin today
served to whet the appetite of the
public The prisoner had spent a
quiet Sunday in her cell, where Bhe
received members of her family and a
few friends. To newspaper men who
sought an interview she refused to
talk of the case, in which she evinces
a less interest than outsiders. Castle,
the widower of the murdered woman,
on the other hand seems to be breaking down under tho strain of the trial.
Soon after court was called to order,
at 10 o'clock, the defense began the
examination of the 12 jurors passed
upon by the prosecution. One man
who had been accepted by tho States'
attorneys was challenged and excused
by the court. Tlie examination continued all afternoon.
Former Probate Judge Morrison hiiB
received several letters from people
offering their services in behalf of his
daughter. A Kansas hypnotist offers
to exert his powers over the presiding
judge aud jury for a stipulated sum

has Ignored the letters.

STILL VISITING.
Paris, Nov. 28.���Tlie conversation
which former President Kruger had
yesterday with the French Minister of
Foreign Affairs, M. Delcasse,was confined to the Transvaaler sounding tho
Frenchman as to the probable attitude of France in certain eventualities. Mr. Kruger did not press for a
definite statement and the conversation lacked prcclseness. M. DelcasBe
let it be understood that France had
not changed her attitude since he explained the Government's poBition in
the Chamber of Deputies last March.
France will not take the initiative in
intervening in South Africa but will
not discourage any other country doing so. On the contrary she will join
in such initiative if it is taken under
Buch conditions as appear to her to
merit acquiessence.
Mr. Kruger did not formulate any
proposition and did not intimate what
he intended to do, but it Is believed
he will take the first official diplo-
matio step at The Hague. It iB not
known whether he will ask Holland to
propose mediation or open other and
less clearly defined negotiations.

Kruger  Calls   on More French Ministers Yesterday.
Paris, Nov. 28.���Last evening Mr.
Kruger and Dr. Leyds drcve to the
Foreign Olliee where they were received by the Minister of Foreign Affairs,
M. Delcasse, with whom they had an

An Incident similar to the ono that
took place in Marseilles occurred on
the arrival of students procession at!
the Hotel Scribe. An upper window
of the hotel opposite was opened and
a handful of small coins wero thrown
down. The students, incensed at the
insult, wished to attack a shipping
office which is on the Btreet level but
the police interfered, pointing out
that tho shippers had no connection
with the people above them. Ultimately the shippers were persuaded by
tho police to cloBe the office in order
to avoid further incidents.
A delegation of four students entered
the hotel und presented a bouquet to
Mr. Kruger, who accompanied them
to the balcony arousing great enthusiasm among the students who numbered 2,000. A considerable body of the
students stationed themselves below
the window from whloh tho money
had been thrown,singing anti-English
songs, nnd shouting "Down with tho
English."   Nu disturbance   however,

Shanghai, Nov. 28.���It is reported
from Nanking thnt all the Viceroys

ROBERTS VT4NTB  TROOPS.
His Request   For   8,000    Men   Causes
Worry   in I Ie,n.
London, Nov. 28.���Whllo the reports of the condition of Cape Colony
areregaided as somewhat unnecessarily alarming, there is little disposition
to take a too roseate view of the
general situation. The constant despatch tu South Afri.a of reinforcing
drafts and the dally fights at points
wide apart show the war is not over,
and while the statement that Lord
Roberts has demanded 20,000 fresh
troops is inclined, it is a fact that
he has asked for 8,000 men to replace
the battalions whose wastage incapacitates them from duty at the front.
These reliefs will be despatched, but
they will seriously attenuate the garrisons of the United Kingdom Inasmuch as Lord Roberts insists the

If the Mayor has the power, by a
single arbitrary act of his own, to
dissolve the Fire .Department and
leave the town unprotected,it will occur to many that we cannot too Boon
revise our corporation charter and apply for amendments ,that will distribute the responsibility among the
members of the Counoil. When It
comes to a matter of mere passion,
the town would no doubt he safer in
the hands of a majority of the Aldermen than In those of a single individual. Aside from this, however, it is
a question of some moment whether
too mucji power is not entrusted to
tho Mayor, whether a wise and cautious one, such as it is possible to get,
or an impetuous bully like the present one.
All Chocks should bo made puyublo to tho
order of Nelson I'.iiusiuno Oomi'-NY,
Limited.
STILL RAMPANT.
The Mayor bus beeu at it again. Ho
is at it so frequently that any conduct of his has ceased to be a surprise,
but it is none the less offensive or intolerable on that account. This time
ho has not only flouted the City Council, which has become a quite familiar thing, but the City itself, and his
outbreak for a time threatened to expose the community to the danger of
being unprotected in the event of fire.
This is one of the prices which have
to be paid for a Mayor who will brook
neither restraint nor opposition, and
who does not think it necessary to
control passions that have never been
distinguished for their loveliness.
It may bo that the members of
the Fire Department were unreasonable in their request for A weekly
practice, although nothing had appeared to give that impression. It
may be that the benefits would not De
eommeusurate with the expense, and
that it was necessary to consider the
matter from the standpoint of economy. The town esteems itself happy
' in having an efficient fire service, and
hns never been heard to complain of
the cost of it. vlto one can dispute,
however, that the members of the Department were free to go to the Council with their petition, and that it
was the duty of a Mayor who knew
his place to treat it and them with the
courtesy usual on such occasions. His
Worship in thiB case Insulted the
deputation for daring to exeroise the
commonest right of citizens; insulted
the Council by ignoring it, and by
an arbitrary exercise of a power mistakenly placed wreaked his vengeance
on the firemen by a summary dismissal of their Chief. Nor will it be said
that the good sense or the self-respect
of the town was flattered by the appointment of a successor.
Tho whole proceeding was a disgrace to the Council and to tho town.
We are becoming accustomed to such
disgraces, it is true; but they do not
grow more bearable, and good citizens
are feeling more constrained than ever
to ask if Nelson has not arrived at
that degree of advancement in the
graces of civilisation that require at
least a seeming respertin the behavior
of its public men. Mr. Houston would
no doubt be quite at home in a rowdy
frontier town, where manners like his
would be at a premium, but it is
thonght that this City has outgrown
them. We believe the public sentiment
here would receive no more consideration than it deserves if wo wero to insist on the adoption ot other methods
in tho conduct of our civic affairs.
How the Council will resent the in-
Btilt to itself,iu tho Mayor's determination to ignore it in dealing with a
matter of deep interest to the community at large, remains to be seen.
On other occasions it has swallowed
its indignation and put its offended
dignity in its pocket; it will bo interesting to see if it will do so in the
face of its latest affront.
LONDON  LETTER.
Meeting of Parliament is Anxiously
Awaited There.
New York, Nov. 28.���The meeting
of Parliament ne^t week will not take
place too soon, says The Tribune's
London correspondent. The Hritish
public is dazed and bewildered by
tho confusion which provails both in
South Africa and China. The trend of
events will be clearer when the Ministers nre in their places to answer
questions and the loader writers are
provided with cpes by those behind
the scenes.
A war costing 87,500,000 weekly is
going on and nobody 6eeras to know
when it is likely to stop. Everybody
IB in a critical mood. Lord Roberts
is sharply criticized for a mistaken
policy of leniency and there is an
amazing outbreak of invective and
abuse directed against General Kitchener ; there are remonstrances in Lib-
oral journals and from pro-Boer plat-
f mis against the barren policy of
burning fauns and starving the Burghers in the impoverished Dutch territory, and Lord Salisbury is attacked
for neglecting to inform France and
tho other powers that the two Republics have been annexed and that the
Boers are no longer entitled to recognition as belligerents when they are
merely rebels, guerillas, and bandits.
When so many games at cross pur
poses are in progress it is impossible
for the public to know what iB going
on. Tho only point on which thero is
general agreement is that tho French
Government has maintained a correct
attitude during the last week and that
tho English people have no reason to
complain of the reception to Mr. Kruger. Lord Salisbury haB clearly acted
with an intelligent motive in refraining from changing the status of the
Boers from belligerents to rebels.
Our Persistency
Is creating business. Of course
it isn't all persistency, but is

New York, Nov. 28.���The canals
will be closed officially on December
1, although usually tho waterway
keeps open, weather permitting, a few
days longer, so that boats still in the
canals en the last day can finish their
trips. It is feared, however, that owing to the BeriouB break of the CO mile
level west of Rome, all further traffic
on the canal this season will now
have to be abandoned.

It tnkes nearly two columns of The
RoBsland Miner to contain the report
of a meeting ol a committee appointed to inquire into the question whether Mr. Oalliher did or did not sign a
petition against tho Eight-Hour law.
Two of the three members wero present, and after a long discussion adjourned until Thursday, to give Mr.
Galliher an opportunity to be present.
The petition, surely, speaks for itself, without all this fuss and bother.
There Is such a petition on lile at Victoria, with Mr. tialllher's name attached to It, und nt Revelstoke the
other night ho admitted as much.
What further evidence is required, or
can be produced? Mr. Oalliher, as
free citizen,anxious for the prosperity
of tho country, signed the petition;
as a candidate seeking votes, he now
wishes be had not. That is tbe whole
matter in a nutshell,

CENTRE   STAR MINE.
Directors Favor Resumption of
Monthly Dividends.
Toronto, Nov. 28.���Tho following
is the director's report of the annual
meeting of the Centre Star Mining
Co., Ltd., whloh was held in Toronto
today.
The director's report showod that  a
rei'.uotlon of over   3D per cent, in   the
cost of mining had  heen made during
the year; that   development was   proceeding rapidly; that   labor   troubles
had been happily Bottled at   Rossland,
aud that a  suporlor  class   of   miners
were coming into the camp. The Cun-
aiilian Pacific Railway have offered to
reduce the rate for freight and   treatment nf the company's ores  hy  $1.25,
In consideration   of thoir obtaining a
larger   tonnage.    Tho directors, however, while appreciating tho very fair
^ipirit   in   which   tho  offer  had been
made had not  beon   able   to seo their
way to adopt  it.    Negotiations  were
..still pending  on other lines, which it
WaB hopod would'soon put the   smelting quostion on a permanent and  satisfactory basis.    The  full explanation
which was given by the President Mr.
, floorgo Oooderham.aiul the Vlce-Pres-
.j^ent Mr.   T. O. IllacUstock,   in  moving and in seconding the report, as to
IH^be objects the directors  had in   view
shipping   in   February   last, gave
eneral satisfaction and was  heartily
ilkpplauded.
Tho report of the   general manager,
E. B. Kerby, was   laid before the
ftpeeting.    This showed the great progress that had been made  during  the

English Tapers Seem   to Favor Methods of   American Jockeys.
London, Nov.28.���Most of the morn
i Ing papers commont upon the   success
' of the American jockeys in   England.
The Times, devoting   a column antl a
half to the subject says in part:
'Notwithstanding some criticism
of his riding, there ean be no doubt
that Lester Reiff is a very fine judge
of pace and handles his horses very
well. But ho does not always distinguish himself at the finish and in this
way he has lost more races by a head
or a neek than he   has won   by   those
J-gins.
'Sloan's total of 82 wins is a   most
creditable preformance.    It   is  generally agreed that he never rode in bet-
Mer  form.    It   is    doubtful    whether
��ny   otbur   jockey   would    have won
Hfcjth Lucknow in the]Portland Plate."
The article expresses great appro-
Tal of the Prince of Wales for retaining II. Jones as his first jockey in
place of Sloan, but points out that
Sloan was the only jockey in whose
case consistent booking would have
realized a profit for tbo season.
' The Dally Mail says that Reiff's triumph constitutes an "unanswerable
argument against English style of riding, if not against English methods."
Sporting Life thinks that the results
of the season "will furnish food for
reflection to those English jockeys
who have been slow to recognize the
merits of the style of their rivals."
The Sportsman says: "It would
bo affection to deny that our robust
faith In tho invincibility of the English jockey has received a rude shak-
lug, but whatever ean be said against
tha .Americans the logic of events has
jutlfled their employment."

MORE WAK   RUMORS.
Turkey Has a Chip on Her Snoulder
For United States.
New York, Nov. 28.���Cable advices
say that the Vienna Tageblatt publishes a despatch from Constantinople
saying that the Turkish Council of
Ministers have held a conference to
deteimine whether or not the sending
of the United States battleship Kentucky to Smyrna should be regarded
as an act of hostilities. According to
the Tageblatt despatch the Home Ministers .urged the severance of diplomatic relation with the United States
and even went so far as to threaten
war unless the Kentucky should be
withdrawn from Turkish waters. The
Ministers express the belief that the
European powers would not permit
tbe United States to attack Tuikey
and that the country, therefore, would
be safe in taking a defiant attitude.
Washington, D. C, Nov. 28.���AH
Ferrouh Bey, Turkish Minister here,
after a call on Secretary Hay today
relative to the visit of the big battleship Kentucky to Turkish waters, declared that the Kentucky's visit conveyed no menace and that it had no
bearing upon the diplomatic relations
between tne Turkish Government and
the United States. Meanwhile it is
understood that the negotiations between Mr. Griscom, United States
Charge at Constantinople, and the
Porte for the settlement of the missionary claims, and the question as to
He- Norton's exequatur as consul at
Harpoot, are progressing with indications that a compromise will be arranged.
WELCOME  TO "RATS."
The Rossland   Record  contains the
following relative to a change of   political faith:
A pompous little Liberal appealed
to a Rossland Tory yesterday to vote
"our ticket." He said: "The Tories
are all coming over���rats leave a
sinking ship you know." "Yes," replied the Tory, "but that is because
they are 'rats.' You are very wel

NEWS OF
THE MINES
THE ROBIN HOOD.
Development Work is New Going On
Rapidly There.
The Robin Hood Group on Cottonwood Creek is being rapidly developed
by Mr. Charles M. Larson, who has
charge of a force of men, and is showing up the property well as work progresses. ThiB prorerty until now has
had a rather hard time. Early in this
year it was bonded to Vancouver parties, but the option ran out without results, and again in July it was bonded
to Mr. B. Thomas who put on about
five weeks work and then discharged
the men, and closed down the mine,
thus defaulting on the terms of an option he had in the meantime transferred to responsible parties, who
would have financed the property
doubtless, successfully. In the early
part of November, Miss Leigh-Spencer
of Vancouver, paid a visit to the
group, and eventually took a bond upon it from the owners, and started up
a gang of men, who at the time of her
visit were putting assessment work
on the Seaforth, for the owners. It
now appears that Mr. Thomas was financed in his few weeks work by the
present holder of the November bond,
and who for some purpose unknown
closed the mine, and left Nelson for
Vancouver, on his own responsibility,
regardless of those who were finding
the development funds. However that
may be, the sound of the blast and
drill, still rings upon the air around
the workings. Mr. Thomas waB In
charge of the Comstock mines of Sil-
verton, now in liquidation, and later
for a few weeks in charge of the Van
Anda property on Texada Island prior
to his management of the Robin
Hood at Nelson. He is shortly going
to commence operations on a good
looking property at Ymir.

The   Miner  is in recepit of the following communication   in   regard  to
an article that   appeared   in The Tribune of recent date.
To the Editor of the Nelson Miner:
Sir,���As The Tribune repeats (his
morning its allegation that there is a
bond on tbe Republic claim I should
like to be allowed to publish the facts
of the case which are as follows: Mr.
C. Parker recently asked for and, obtained from the owners of the claim
an authority as their agent to lind a
purchaser for the property. This authority was limited In time to the
20th of this month, and as no purchaser was forthcoming within that
time the owners notified Mr. Parker
that bis time was up. I fully explained this to The Tribune on Saturday
I:iHt and regret that its staff has not
sense enough to understand that a document whose force expired on the
20th November is not brought to life
again by being recorded on the 20th
November. I am, sir, yours truly,
A. POWYS.

The Richelieu Gold Mining Company, which is now ready to ship 5,-
000 tons of ore from the Silver Hill
mine near Crawford Bay, will in the
near future build a wharf at the end
of the wagon road, at Crawford Bay
townsite. It will not be an extensive
structure, as it is to bo only 50 feet
long and 20 feet wide, and will be
used nearly exclusively for loading
ore. A large amount of oro is already
stored at the mine and shipping will
start in the near future.
