the place to visit. Here you will find
a large stock of all kinds of novel -

and also at tho stoie of Fred Irvine _

t'lisiness. They have novelties of all
kinds for the Christinas trade and can

trols.

SENATORS URGE
RATIFICATION
Hay-Pauncefote Treaty Discussed In the U. S.
Senate.
Messrs. Foraker and Morgan
Both Strongly Plead
For It.
Washington, D. C, Dec. 10.���The
friends of the Hay-Pauncefote treaty
occupied nearly all of the time of the
Senate in executive session today,Senators Foraker and Morgun being tbe
speakers. Previous to the taking up
of thut troaty the Senate ratifl d five
conventions. Among tho documents
disposed of was an agreement supple-
mentaiy.to the Hay-Pauncefote treaty
itself and extending the time in
which it may be ratified until March
4th. The other treaties which were
ratified were us follows: Extending
for one year the time within winch
a commercial treaty with Argentu
may be secured ; extending for u yenr,
the time within which the treaty
with Great Britain for reciprocity
with Jamaica may be ratified; tbe
new extraditions with Bolivia and
Chili.
The flny-Pnuncefote trenty was

in Venezuela.

celved at the office of the National
Asphalt Co., from its agent In Venez-

probably the outcome of an attempt
on the part of the President nnd Cabinet of Venezuela to deprive American
corporations of their property and
rights. The Nationnl Asphnlt Co.
will be a sufferer if this be true. Tho
company owns large concession! and
mining rights in the state of llormu-

Great surprise waB caused in the
City this morning when it was discovered that another plank was laid at
the croHs'.ng ut the corner of Ward nnd
linker Streets. This Improvement
now ninkes it possible fur people to
puss over the sen of mud single file
without getting pat.t0U_a.Vjj muddy.
Considering the scarcity of planks and
the enormous price that has to be paid
for them tlio civic authorities nre to
be highly commended for the public
spirit they have displayed in making
this grand Improvement, In view of
the fact that none of the present City
Fathers have offered themselves for
re-election.and therefore aro nut looking for votes, there is much speculation in the city as to why the planu
wus laid. There seems little prospect
of the Crossing being repaired this
century, but it may be during the
next.

ATHABASCA AND
THE EXCHEQUER
Two Nelson Properties Will
Shortly Belong to One
Company.
Athabasca Company's Offer
for Exchequer Has Been
Accepted.
It was finally decided yesterday afternoon, at a meeting of the shareholders of the Exchequer Gold Mining
Co., Ltd., held at Mr. A. II. Kelly's
office on Baker Street, to accept the
offer of the Athubuscn Gold Mines,
Ltd., for tho Exchequer group on
Morning Mountain. As soon ns the
usual formalities of "closing up the
deal can be completed the new company will start the development of
the property at once.
The object of the meeting was to
consider the offer of the Athabasca
Gold Minos, Ltd., to purchase the
company's entire assets. About 76,000
shares of the company's shares were
represented. Mr. E. Nelson Fell,
president of the Exchequer Company
occupied the chair, and Mr. R. 8.
Lennie acted ns secretary. The basis on which the sale was effected was
that the capital stock of thu Athabasca bo increased by ��l(i,oou and the
vendors of tho Exchequer to receive
this stock in both properties in payment for their interest in tbe Exchequer. The stock will be issued in
accordance with the amount held by
the members of the Exchequer com-
pauy in that company. The shares
will bo fully paid up ordinary H.I
shares of the Athabasca Company.
Tho union uf these two properties
under one management and that management having at Its back any
amount of capital will mean a great

BULLS   TRIUMPHANT.
New York. Dec. 10.���Speculative
excitement continued today In Wall

no signs of nbatement in the upward

mixed in the tendency nf prices and
professional traders are constantly on

Our couteuiporry is probably right
in saying that the munner of Mr. McKane's selection caused tho Iobb of
many Conservative votes. For all
that, however, Mr. McKane was as
much tho choice of the party���the

mako him under the circumstances.
Tho sudden withdrawal of Mr. Mno-
Nclll made the enso nrgent. Thore
bad to be action at once or not at all.
Leaders of the party consulted hurriedly, with no other motive but the
good of the party, and Mr. McKane
wus asked to become the candidate.
Thut was ull that could be done in
the brief time left, and it was enough
to satisfy men who arc not looking
for slights and othor onuses of offence.
Mr. McKune deserved the united
support of his party, and throughout
the campaign proved himself bo

get it on some other occasion.

THIS YEAR.
"The progress which Nelson has
made in the matter of public ownership of public utilities," says Mr.
Houston's paper,"Is the envy of many
of its less fortunate sister oities.''
One wonders whether on this subject
Mr. Houston's paper is more fool than
knave. There is strong internal evidence at times to show that it is in
earnest; at other times there is
ground for the suspicion that its zeal
for "public utilities" is intended as
a cover to the corrupt transaction by
whioh the present electric light service was unloaded on the City at a
cost far in excess of its value. But
whatever the motive, there is always
present in its discussion of this mat
ter the most unmiBtakeable proof
that it does not understand what It
Ib talking about.
Mr. Houston and his paper talk as
if municipal ownership of franchises
were a new thing, one that our Mayor had discovered and Introduced into Nelson. This is said in a tone and
with a manner to invite applause, as
much as if the people were expected to
exolaim, "What a brilliant fellow
this HouBton iB, and how deeply we
are indebted to him!" Long before
Mr. Houston was born there was pub
lie ownership of public utilities, and
the two which nearly all cities in the
British Kmpire venture on first are
water and light. Because Nelson has
followed a fashion that is hoary with
age, we are asked to regard tho event
as a most extraordinary example of
enlightened enterprise. There are
many reasons why a city should own
and control Its own water and light
services, and these were understood
and acted upon while Mr. Houston
was still in his swaddling clothes and
the world was in ignorance of the tremendous genius that had been born
into It.
The first thing a rising Canadian
town of a few thousand intelligent
and enterprising people sets out to do
is to piovide itself with a permanent
and abundant supply of water. This
done, It considers next whether it
would not be in tbe public interest to
provide also a system of lighting.
Often the conditions and circumstances
are such as to render this desirable;
sometimes, however, they are of a
character to discourage municipal
ownership just at the moment, and
other provision is made. In all cases
common sense is brought into play,
and the people do what they decide is
best. The only marked difference
that distluguishes Nelson's owner
ship of these public franchises is that
in our oase botli services aro inadequate, both were hurriedly and imper
feet provided, and In the case of one
���f them the towi^was cheated to the
tune of a good round figure In taking
it over. These are matters about
which it may be we are entitled to
boast; but they are the only ones to
distinguish Nelson from hundreds of
other cities aid towns, scattered
about the world, many of which had
lejoiced In public ownership of these
and other franchises years before our
great and good Mayor had boen
thought of as an atom of the humanity be has lived to adorn with such
lustre.
The ratepayers of Nelson sliould
read and ponder the letter of Mr.
Campbell-Johnston, published in this
Issue. It iB a subject of great interest
to the City, and is treated with the
breadth of a cultured mind and with
the knowledge and insight of an expert. It ought to be refreshing to
readers of The Miner, as it Is to The
Miner itself, after so long an experience with tbe parish politicians who
set themselves up us our masters.

Says The (Ireenwood Miner:
"The Nelson Miner must know that
Mr. McKane wus not tbe choice of
the Conservative party of Yale-Cariboo, but of a few persons in Rossland,
and the first Intimation Boundary
Conseravtives had of Mr. McKane's
candidature was a telegram from
Hossland, which also announced Mr.
MaaNelll's retirement from the contest. Whether or not the Conservatives of othei portions of Yale-Caii-
boo were treated with more courtesy
than those of Boundary we do not
know, but the manner of Mr. McKane's selection was the caune of a
large number of Conservative votes
being polled for the other candidates.
If there is blame to be attached to
any one for the defeat in Yale-Carl-
boo, it Is to Mr. MaeNeill for retiring

CZARINA UNHAPPY.
Intensely   Unpopular   in the   Laid of
Her Adoption.
Everywhere, save in Russia, expressions of sympathy for the young czarina nre to be heard. Her delieato condition of health renders her but 111-
llttud to endure the fatigue and
anxiety entailed by the grave lllne-s
of her husband, and should his m.l-
mlv have a fatal termination, her
position in Russia would be one of
BurpuHsing ditrlculty and loneliness.
For ulthough sho is a beautiful
woman, and likewiso a brilliantly
clever one,yet she is amazingly unpopular in tho land of her adoption, and
th.it is one reason why I mentioned at
tho beginning of this letter that she
e-elted at the present moment sympathy everywhere save iu Russia.
The young Czarina is almost hated
in her husband's dominions. She is
spoken ot constantly as "the foreigner." One party denounces her us
the "English woman," another party
reviles her as "the German, "and it is
ahvayB taken for granted that she is
more in sympathy with Russia's enemies than she is with Russia's
friends. The l'an-Slavit accuses her
openly of endeavoring to westernize
Ru6sia,and to deprive the latter of its
distinctive national character. The
whole military party to a man is
against her, with her husband's uncle, the Orand Duke of Vladimir, at
its head. The Grand Duchess Vladimir, in spite of her German birth, is
one of the most bitter foes of the young
empress. The clericals, with tbe all-
powerful and bigoted chief of the holy
synod, Pob.eonotzei_, are against her,
while at court even her own ladies in
waiting join in intrigues against her,
and are never weary of extolling her
mother-in-law, the Czarina Marie, at
her expense.
The unpopularity of the citizens Is
the more remarkable as there is no
sovereign consort In all Europe who
does her work in life more consistently or who strives harder to win the
love of her people. No scheme for bettering the lot of the poor is ever
brought to her notice, to which, if
she can, she does not give a helping
hand. She is a woman of the most
marked ability, and of the widest accomplishments possessed, in fact, of
all the Intellectual gifts of her exceptionally clever aunt, the widowed
Empress Frederick, being, perhaps,
more kindly and sweet natured than
the latter.
On the other hand, she has her
aunt's most disastrous habit of calling
a spade a spade, and like Empress
Frederick, she is somewhat lacking in
tact, as she proved in her anti cigarette campaign. Like Empress Frederick again,she cannot altogether conceal her contempt for frivolity, affectation and sham, and holds decided
views, not only^ln art and literature,
but also In politics, especially as to
tbe lines on which the material affairs
should be managed. Indeed, one of
the outcries raised against her iB that
she has been in the habit of interfer-
, ing in state affairs, and using her Influence over her husband to thwart
tbe best plans of his ministers.
Much of the Czarina's unpopularity
smuug the uneducated classes is due
to an odd feeling that they have that
sin' '.b under an unlucky spell that
Ikons do not smile on her. When she
crossed the Russian frontier she was
received,not with rejoicings, but with
lamentations. For Czar Alexander
III., lay dying, nnd the whole nation
was in sore distress. It was by his
death-bed that she was betrothed, and
the baked meats of his funeral might
well hnve furnished her marriage
table. As a bride she had to listen to
the "De Profundis," instead of to the
wedding march, and go about iu
mourning garments. The Russians
are a superstitious race. Evidently
this Western bride found no favor in
the eyes of the fetes. What good
could come of a marriage celebrated
In audi circumstances? The birth of
three daughters in succession, while
the empire Is left without aii heir, Is
a proof, they now say, that their tore-
bodingB wore but too well founded.
Another reason for tho ill-will with
v. 11 i.-l. the Czarina linn all along been
popularly regarded lies undoubtedly
In the rumors current among all classes In Russia that the Czar married her
unwillingly. It was a member of the
Imperial family and a countryman
of tho Czarina, namely, the Grand
Duchess Vlndmir, who first started
these tales, and who has all along
been engnged In spreading them
abroad. Even the peasants who, as a
rule, know no moro than their cattle
��f what Ib going on In the world,have
all had It whispered to tbem that the
Czar ban been unhappy because he has
a wife who docs not love him,but who
married him only for the sake of tho
crown jewels.
Should the young Czarina be left a
widow her position lu   Russia   would
B_BH_a ������'" Mu  -    BBBBS ______
be well-nigh intolerable, for her
brother-in-law, Grand Dcke Michael,
who would be Invested with the regency in the event of her giving birth
to a boy in the Bprlng, and who will
become emperor in succession to his
brother if she gives birth to another
girl, is devoted to his mother, and,
consequently, opposed to hiB brother's
wife, and would as autocrat of the
family,be in a position to exercise the
most despotic authority over herself
and her children.
In fact If the young Czarina becomes a widow Bhe may yet live to
envy the lot of that morganatic relict
of the murdered Czar Alexander II.,
who, ulthough banished from Russia
immediately after the tragedy and
forced to livo abroad in quasi ostracism, was, nevertheless, permitted to
retain exclusive control over her
children und the enormous fortune bequeathed to her by her husband, entirely Independent, therefore, of the
authority of his son und grandson.
Little is known of the Grand Duke
Michael except that he is 22 years of
age and a well set up and healthy
youth,who has boen kept pretty closely tied to the apron strings of his
mother, and who until now has had
no scandal of any kind connected with
his name. He is generally Delieved to
have been anxious to marry his cousin, the Grand Duchess Helen, daughter of the Grand DuchesB Vladimir,
and, like the latter, ascribed his brother's persistent refusal to grant the
ecclesiastical dispensation requisite
to render a union between first cousins, tojthe influence^ of his sister-in-
law, the Czarina, and to her pronounced dislike for her aunt, the Grand
Duchess Vladimir.
There is not one member of hor husband's family save her own sister, the
wife of the Grand Duke Sergius, upon whose friendship or goodwill she
can rely, and the Grand Duchess Sergius has quite as many enemies in
Russia as the young Czarina, a fact
largely due to the belief that she is
responsible foi the reports circulated
far and wide through the civilized
world to the effect that she has been
the victim of the most frightful brutality on the part of her husband,
Grand Duke Sergius, who is described in the stories as a gloomy fanatic.

A Critical Test!
We like to have people test
qur Paints and Enamel. We
like them to know the good
qualities they contain. They
are full of good points, and we
know it.
But the best test of Enamel
is the wearing quality. There
is no cracking, no peeling, no
fading, where the Sherwin-
Williams Enamel is used.
All you need with it is a
brush.    You can do the rest.

CIVIC   PROBLEMS.
Editor Miner:
Sir���An election for Mayor and Aldermen is again at hand. The man on
the Btreet hears this and that reason
why he sliould cast his vote for this
or that man. The most frequent given version is the old parrot cry that
the City sliould own the electric franchise. Because OlaBgow, the pioneer
City who first owned her franchises
gained by doing so. therefore are we
to shut our eyes to reasons why Nelson should not follow'.' Pause to consider. Nelson has an unique advantage which sliould be advertised to tbe
commercial world. Niagara as a
producer of electrical power ia the
talk of the world. In tho Kootenay
River between Nelson and Robson
there is a power equal to Niagara
drawn out for twenty miles. So
much the better for Nelson compared
with Niagara. So many more chances
are given to harness this power.
Where innumerable shafts to draw olf
water for_powor at Niagara inerfere
with all the water being utilised,here
the same water is used over and over
again. Having this unique advantage,
what have our City Fathers and
Boaid of Trade done to advertise it'.'
Nothing. Have the facts of the fall,
velocity, and volume of the river been
reported on by a diplomaed .lectrical
engineer, whose report from his diploma will carry weight, and the
results published broadcast? No!
There is one company now who have
generated some power. We read of
the C.P.K. wanting power; we know
of mines within reasonable distance
wanting [lower, and we .know this
want has only begun. We want to
see ten such companies go in, and
spend one or two millions of dollars
each to install power. Rome was not
built in a day,but it never would have
been built if the Roman fathers Intel
not made a beginning, and pulled, together in ipreading out. What arc
our City Fathers doing to help Nelson to begin and spread out',' They
have a twopenny power in a side
creek, which they bought because
their minds did not grasp the future
certainties of our town. To bolster
up this first mistake, they refuse to
allow outsiilo power to be sold here.
Ilioiiiise they dare not and should not
spend the millions required to install
power ou the Kootenay, they therefore play the dog Iu tlie manger anil
say others shall not? Are we to uphold such pin-headed policy, or are
we to work for out own prosperity?
The days of narrow gauged railways
aro past, let us run on standard gauge,
The commercial rivalry of the world
Is fearful, let us take every advantage
of what nature has given us; build
up our city, Increase our population;
become a commercial and manufacturing centre in fact and not in fancy.
Tbe mines will make this their centre if they can buy cheaply here. Let
us have free trade In electrical power,
buying from   the   cheapest   producer;
encourage competition to bring about
cheapness, advertise our   advantages,
and   enter   the   race   for   commercial
prosperity with unfettered loins.

A GOOD THING.
German Syrup is the special preset iption of Dr. A. Boshee, a celebrated German Physician, and is acknowledged to be one of the most fortunate discoveries in Medicine. It
quickly cures Coughs, Colds and Lung
troubles of the severest nature, reniov-
iug, as it does, tile cause of the affec-
ton and leaving the parts in a strong
and bealtby condition. It is not an
experimental medicine, but has stood
tlie test ol years, giving satisfaction
in every case, which its rapidly increasing sale every season confirms.
Two million bottles sold annually,
llosche's German Sj'rup was introduced in the United States in 18118,
and is now sold in every town and
village in the civilized world. Three
doses will relieve any ordinary cough.
Price 75 cents. For Sale by W. F.
