London, Jan. 0.���The Berlin correspondent of thn Daily News, in a (lis-
paten dealing somewhat nt length with
the question of the sei-ote of  German
vessels bv British warships, says:
"It cannot! be denied thnt tho idea of
an anti-British coalition is very popular bcre. Hopes are now being placed
on Russia Without being pessimistic
1 must say that the present jinn-lure is
extremely critical. As matters stand
onlv the fact that no power wishes to
take thn initiative prevents such a
coalition from being brought   about."
Berlin, Jan, 8.���The Foreign OTioe
this evening authorized the following
statements:      "Germany    reoogni7.es
tho right of search within certain
specido limits. Among the points
enumerated in the protest filed in Loudon is one contending that England
has exceeded these limits. No answer
has yet, been receivod to this protest "
On being asked whether it was correct thnt joint action on the pint of
the powers in the inntter of seizure
was under way, a high oflicial of
the Foreign Office replied that such
nation might have to be taken if the
seizures did not cense. Ho asserted
that Russia was asking such joint action in regard to the Interruption of
telegraphic oomuiuniontion with Smith
Africa, bnt lie denied formally the report that Germany had sounded Washington about the feasibility of such
joint act ion. The question of the seizures will eonie np ill the Reichstag us

the crisis coming to u head there was
a placid serenity of things which become monotonous before the short silting of two hours ended. Martin was
absent, baivng missed yesterday's

gentlemen to tho Speaker's left. There
Willi not much business done,for it was
thought that the Opposition would devote the whole lilting to expressing
want of confidence iu the Government.
That falling, the Government giving
all Information asked for and Higgins
not being   ready   with   his   bills,  the
Hou��e rose until tomorrow afternoon

Perhaps the most Important business
of the day was the request of Higgins
for     correspondence     regarding     the

in introducing Legislation that would

There is ranch to do In Nelson dining the next two, three, or four years
it she is to be arrayed in a manner befitting her character as Queen City of
the Keen nay-. We are just beginning
to assume metropolitan airs, forced upon ns by the growing importance of
tlie place, and as development increases so will tbe necessity for keening
ourselves abreast of it. Street im -
provementB are required at once; our
sewer system, sanitary arrangements,
waterworks, and other pulbic enterprises -will have to be extended and
enlarged to meet the demands of a rapidly increasing population. Our plans
should ho laid, not for the present
only, but with an eye to the future. It
is of the first importance, that we
elect, aud continue to elect,honest, intelligent, capable Councils. Two days
hence citizens will be called upon to
elect the Council that Is to direct and
control our municipal affairs for the
year on which we have ]uFt entered.
Electors who fully appreciate the in-
portance of the occasion will approach
this duty with a deep sense of their responsibility. The various candidates
are now before'them. Iu the selection
they will make honesty and good common sense the first qualifications, Men
who seek to go into tho Council to
gratify personal ambition or to serve
personal ends are not desirable representatives. The honest man, whose
only motive is the puolic good, may
make mistakes, but in the end he will
prove infinitely more satisfactory than
the self-seeker, however clever he may
be. Next to honesty is capacity.
Keeping these qualifications prominently before them, Nelsou ratipayers
on Thursday next will vote for the
election of tbe following Council:

and engaged a bout to convey Mr. Martin to Nana!mo nnd also ordered a
special train to bring him ou to Victoria. It iR the business of the tuiia-
muirs to take such orders and execute
them, just as much as it is for The
Province newspaper to accept an order for advertising. But here was an
opportunity to trot out the Duiisrnuir

month of the year, it sayH, Mr Turner
was still in charge, and of course the

A daily journal of the House is issued iu the form of Votes and Proceedings. The repoit of the first day makes
had rending. The serious work of the
session began with n motion by Mr.
Semlin, that the Speech be taken into
consideration 011 tho following Monday. This was negntived. A self respecting Premier, who respected also
the traditions of Hritish Parliamentary
government, would have stopped there
and isked lor an adjournment 111 order
that he might seriously consider his
future course. Rut he went ou. Another motion was made, and that too
was negatived. The Sijeakei ruled ou
a point of urder that was raised, and
on appeal the House refused fo sustain
him. Here were three evidences that
tho control of the House bad passed to
the Opposition. And yet the (3uve.li-
ment hung on. Another supporter
turned up. and in two succeeding divisions the Government worried
through by virtue of the cns'iug vote
of the Speaker. It wns all very bad,
not so much because the Government
do not change sides with the Opposition, but because uf the contemptible
spirit displayed by men who are in the
high places of the Province.

Each Ward-
Nomination day pnssod ofT quietly
yesterday without any speoial incident. The various candidates appeared
at different times with their proposers
and seconders, hut at no time did a
crowd tiK.-timihlo. There urn live aspirants for alder-mania honors in each
ward, instead of six as last your, the
feature of tbe contest being that there
is 110 straight ticket ot Aldermen eacb
candidate Standing on his nivit merits. It would he dangerous to attempt
to foreoast the exact result of the ballot but in the West Ward Messrs. Mc-
Killon, Arthur and r'erliind should In
certainties, through the last named
will im handicapped owing to tbs faot
that bis enforced absence prevents liis
making a personal canvas. In the Mast
Ward the problem is moio difficult.
Tbo chances of Mr. J. A. living tire
generally looked upon as slim, but
Messrs. Wilson, Flyers, Morrison nnd
Dr. Hall are four good men between
whom the electors will tlnd it hard to
discriminate. It was rnmored on the
streets yesterday that the property
qualifications uf two of the aldcrinni'ic
candidates will be questioned, but it is
improbable that these stories have
any substantial basis of fact.
Foi lowing   is   the  list of tbe candidates nominated, their   profession and
the unnies   which   appeared   on   their

house when he opened his week's engagement ut the Opera House last
night. He commenced by telling tbe
nitlietiee something about the Infra

To 'he Citizens of Nelson:
In response to numerous requests
from business men, property owneis
ami latepayers, 1 otter myself as a oau*
didate for Mayor of the i_ity of Nelson
nt the approaching Municipal Elections,
Briefly stated, my platform is us follows :
If elected it will be my earnest endeavor to assist in more tirmly establishing Nelson as tlm wholesale rtistri-
Inning oentre of the Kooteuny Country
���the position for Whioh slie lias been
sn admirably Designed by nature.
In furtherance ot this idea, I will
continue my consistent ndvoency t f the
construction of n wharf which will
meet present and future requirements
of lhe wholesale und other busineM interests.
I believe that the City has reached
that stage when permanent Btreet improvements have become an absolute
necessity and that the cost should be
met, us far ns feasible, from current
revenue and should the Citizens see tit
to entrust me with the ofliee of Mayor,
it will be my nini to carry ont a well
devised system of street Improvements.
It will be my policy to oppose the
borrowing of money unless tbe same be
used for the Increase or establishment
of I'tililie Works producing a revenue
to the Taxpayers.
I am opposed to any increase in the
salary ot Mayor, which would necessarily Involve ii reduction ill salaries
now paid an efficient staff of officials,
or an increased burden to the taxpayers.
1 am strongly in favor of maintaining the Kin. Department in a position
of thorough efficiency und would advise the adoption of modern equip
nients including a Fire Alarm System
and the purchase of il chemical engine
which would elYeot a reduction in all
Kire Insurance.
It will be my consistent policy to
safeguard the taxpayers against any
attempts on the putt of corporate bodies, carrying on business in Nelson, to
encroach upon the rights uf the Citizens.
In my opinion o sntiicicnl amount
of money should he expended npon the
Parks of the City so that they will pro
vidu the Citizens with recreation
grounds and opportunities for healthful
On all munlolpal works mv policy
will he to employ bona-fldo residents of
Nelson and to maintain the public
stnndar i rate of wages
I believe that the Public Schools iu
Nelson should be under lhe control of
the City and that e��ery   effort   should
he made to establish a High School In
our midst.
In concluding 1 wish to sny that in
the event of my election I will consider it litv duty to share with the
Council the responsibility of the Civic
administration believing, us I dn, that
the assumption of entire authority by
one individual is subversive of all constitutional Governments whether
Municipal or otherwise, Yours respectfully,

Toronto, Ont., Jau, 8.���Rov. Dr.
Carman,   General**; Superintendent   of
the Methodist Chinch, a few days ago
contended that the losses to the Biitish
army in South Africa was God's
chastisement for the sin of ruin traffic,
opium trade, Sanbath deseorntiou, and
social aud political oorruptiou existing
in Great Britain today. These remarks were Btrongly condemned by
Rev. G, R, Turk, of Carleton Street
Methodist Church, formerly of Winnipeg, last night. He contended that
oven if the roiniirks had been true they
were at lo-st most reckless nnd untimely. The congregation cheered the
preacher, only one man in the congregation disapproving of them, the same
by leaving the church with the re-
mark:     This is too British for  me."
