London, .Inn. (I.���The   pausing of "ill-

spent lhe Ittiudesrath    incident   almnsl
monopolises attention, ihe  leixnre of
American  ilinir  being relegated to 11
very subsidiary positloU nnd not- being
taken ns bnvlug the slightest possibility of producing International friction,
On the whole, tbe British press htiH
taken a oalm view of the Gorman self,-
urn matter and hod refnied lo 1 n led
into replying In kind to the hittt 1
cniiiincntii telogrnphed from Germany.
In this the papers merely voice the
feeling of the Government, for at the
Foreign Office not tho slightest anxiety is full regarding Ihe actions so far
token against the alleged  oontraband.
though that question in the abstract
Clauses no cu1 ol cogitations, but more
regarding the effect the present decisions will have upon the future events
than by the press ofj contemporaneous
difficulties. The British Government
believes it lias a gr,od case ngninst the
Bundesrath. But, hoth in this iu-
etnuce nnd in the case of the American flour, the Government holds thai
absolutely nothing definite can be done
until the minute dctailB are learned
and even then tlie Una points of law
iiiTolved must be settled by the careful
deliberation of experts in the meantime, it is possible the Government
ninv deem it advisable to make declarations regarding contraband, especially food stuffs lnit such a step is
unite problematical.
To quote an American diplomat in
London, after rending the cabled accounts that ihe United States insistence upon her rights might cause trouble said :
"Flow in the world do they think
such a complicated point of law can be
settled so quickly, or 01111*0 any serious
disagreement between powers so
friendly as the United States and England. "
Commenting on the American feel-
ins the Saturday Review says:
"We fear no accurate presentment of
the real feeling of the United States
regarding the war report of this country, but there is no doubt tbe balance
is against 08, Tbe administration or
gans and financial organs tire still
strongly with us but the latter arc beginning to waver because tbo war is
beginning to injnie trade. It nniM not
be forgotten bow completely the administration is in tho hands of the
gnat financiers and trust companies."

Speculation Rife as lo Where
he Will Sit-
He Cantiot Carry 'on tlie Eusiness of the
Session and Will Probably Call for
a Dissolution.
(Speoial Dispatch to The Miner.)
Virjtotia, B. C., Jan. (i ���The a 1 absorbing question in political ciroh'3 today is what will be the outcome of tbo
motion of want of confidence to be
nuivi (1 on Monday by Mr. Turner.
While members of the Government Seville motion will be lost by the vote of
the Speaker, should Prentice be still
absent,ns were the questions of Thursday evening, thn Opposition are circulating stories to the effeot that Prentice will arrive hj then, and instead nf
taking his sent with the Government,
will sit with tliem. This will make
the parties even, and in such case il
would not bo long before the Governor
was obliged to call on some one (who,
it would he haul to say 1 to form 11
ministry. Other reports ore to tbe
effeot that Prentice is 00ming, and so
one in the coniideiice of tbo Government informs me, will take his seal
with them. Some, though, aver be
does not intend to sit. Should this be
true the Government's   position  will
be almost untenable and even with
r'reiiticu they \iould not have a working majority, There are rumors that
Bemlin will shortly ask for a dissolution. Should Prentice take his seal
with the, them Government's majority
would be such ti small one, that they
would find it dillienlt to carry en the
work of the session and the reports
gain wide circulation Hint they will
ntenipt to get the estimates through il
possible, nnd then ask for n dissolution,which according to men versed in
constitutional usages hers, Bemlin
might properly  do  nnder the oiroum-
stances; whereas, if the Government is
defeated in the House be would be
forced to resign and thereforo-would be
unable to go to the country with such
prestige as be and his confreres would
have,  by being still ill iilfioo.

Tho prominent business man who
said, as reported in yesterday's Mi net,
that if Mr. Houston, ' can't do a thing
himself, lie does his best to stop an>-
one else from doing it," knew bis
man pretty well. Mr. Houston is one
of the rule or vnin sort. He is n candidate for the Mayoralty of Nelson,
otherwise men of sense would not waste
time in AisouBsing him. Perhaps
in the whole Province of British Columbia there is not a moro over-rated
person, It is possible to discover only
a partial explanation ot this, li" is
one of ih" old-timers, ami came to tho
front In tho days when vulgar bullying
wax not without ib force. He has
continued hi> bullying, and m a measure has maintained bis prominence.
But why among men of intelligence
there should have been failure to ta e
the true measure of bis abilities and
character must tor the present remain
a mystery.
As a candidate, however, it is Horn s-
sary to discuss him. The kind of mil i
Nelson should elect as its Mayor is a
matter of some consequence, and
whether bis merits rank him second,or
third, or fourth rate, he has to be considered. Mr. Houston's coarsely dictatorial nature quite unfit! him to represent with credit the respectability, the
intelligence, and the, enterprise of a
city like Nelson. A large majority of
ilie Nelson of today have no knowledge
ot or sympathy with the intlncnees on
der which his peculiar character has
been formed, and notwithstanding the
admiration of his personal t'rieuds they
feel unstrained to express the view
that he is not the sort of person they
care to have as their chief Magistrate.
A Mayor is something more than a
mere administrator of the business
affairs ol a municipality, He is expected to represent the moral, the social,
and the cultured Hide of the community as well, anil il Mi. Houston possesses the qualifications to m��et these requirements he has been rather unfortU'
nate in bo successfully conceal ing
Such qualifications as appear on the
surface are calculated to give, the impulsion ilint a worse choice could
scarcely be made. And the character'
1st ii- mentioned by the business man
referred to is one very much to the
point, although In us application it
may have only to do with the purely
business affairs "f the municipality.
Mr. Houston has very extravagant
view-- of the authority of Mayor. That
official, in his estimation, should be a
veritable autocrat, If be were Mayor
be would insist .ai directing the entire
atliiit oI lb.' City, and if bo could not
have hi- own way In would simply obstruct lieu i ii,,i the kind nf Mayor

ment of Lord Charles Reresford in the
Mediterranean equally implies -that
Imperial policy is watchful over all
Imperial interests.' General Puller,
remarks The Commercial Advertiser, is
not superceded, 'but the whole aimy
goes instead of n part, mid the commanders go with the army.' This pup-
el believes thnt nearly all Cape Colony,
as London telegrams assert, is in revolt. 'Great Britain, instead of n little foreign war, has a groat domestic
rebellion to (leal witli. It is the British Boers to whom the failure of the
campaign thus far is due.' The same
journal treats   the declarations of   the
Continental Press about English decadence with contempt as coming from
people, 'smarting under  Anglo-Saxon
superiority;' and it adds:
" 'Were any misfortune to befall us
exactly the same pleasure would be expressed. Whether we desire if or not,
wo aie in the' same boat with the British. Harm to hor prestige would he
barm to our prestige. Curtailing her
power ourtailB our own���a power
which, we believe, makes for the enlightenment of the world, au.l for the
progress of civilisation.' "
In ISlifi, and again in 1871, when
���Fenians in the United Slates were giving anxiety and trouble to Canada,
that country was still smarting under
what it believed was Great Britain's
unfriendliness during tho Civil War.

Vancouver ratepayers are asking

characteristic nf Vaiicouvci alone; it is
the rule in other cities as well. Why
it should be is perhaps owing to an
excess of amiability on the part nf tbe

their hearts than nn excess of harshness.

J.  A.   SAYWARD.   Mrs.   SVIcLaughlin's NELSON DAILY MINER, SUNDAY,  JANUARY 7,  .qoo
Tlie  Nelson Fublio Schools Have   Kent
Well Abreast of tho General Progress in Nelson-
A glance over tlto Nelson lJnblie
School returns for tlm year just passed
shows that thnt establishment has
fnlly kept pace with tlie development
nml progress that has every whore
marked the year Iniiii in Nelson.
There were only Id days of school iu
December and the near approach of tbe
holidays no doubt made the attend
mire full off a little, but anyhow November was the banner month o�� the
year with October a good second, During the month oi January the nvernge
daily attendance \vnn i82.40 with two
363 children on the luniks. In October
tlm  average  daily    attendance    was
_S7.-i! with llaS lianes on the list, in
November 808.13 with 800 names, nnd
in December 388.05 with 850 mimes,
Tims it will be seen that during the
year the number of pnpils was in-
ereasiiri by over one hundred, while the
extremely good average of attendance
was proportionately greater. Tins is ���(
good and gratifying showing, demonstrating us it dues, not only the efficient way in which tho Bohnol is conducted but that the number of homes
in Nelson is on the uiiTeu-e.
Another striking feature of tlm report is the very Small number of cases
in which'it wns necessary to admin s-
ter coriinriil punishment. In such a
large number of children, unruly inns
are always to be found, nud the record
speaks volumes I'm' the tact ami good
management   of   the   teaching     stuff.
There were ios cases during the year
when corporal punishment bad to he
administered, which, put in anotlur
way, means that (lining the 13 months
of Bchonliug about half the children ou
one occasion en. niittnd a sufficiently
serious offense to be thus, punished.
Anyone who has hil'l to deal with
large niimlersuf ihildien in oioivded
s'boi'l rooms will acknowledge that
admirable discipline, must bave heen
'luiiiitnined lo have brought about Buoh
a high ilegn e nf order.
A Large Number of Names Wire Add-
ed     Yesterday.
Pollue Magi-tiale I'leise belli thnnil-
nual Court "f Revision yesterday morn
ing in the City Hall and n considerable
number of nnines were added to the
list. The onli' name that was refused
was that of Robert [nee, and bis ex-
pulsion has -auso'l considerable comment. The reason was thnt Mr. Int-e
bad sold out Ins business, but to tbe
lay mind it sum s strange that since
his trader'e license is slill in force lush.mid   not   1 ntii toil to   vole     The
decision nny he teohnically oorrect,
but it works a hardship on tut old resident like Mr,  luce.     Both   sides   were

One ot tho most imposing of tbe
many handsome blocks erected in Nelson Inst year is tho Madden Block,
which is now rapidly Hearing coraplc
tion. It is of red brick and stands oo
the comer of Baker and W'aid Streets,
the heart of the bosiuess section of
the City. Ill tbe basement an up-to-
date barbel shop  is being fitted np, on
the ground floor are three stores
the floor above has beeu divided
suites of offlceR. The erection of

iu the appearance of Baker Street as
it stands where there wag formerly a
muddy creek bed. Mr. Thomas Madden owns the block and superintended
its erection.

A strike has lately been made near
town that will no doubt result iu the
ope ling up of another mino within
less than one mile of Silverton, says
the Silvertonian. This strike has been
marie on the Fieddy claim, which lies
just, below and adjoining the Noonday
mine. Sometime ago tbe owners,
Nixon and Turner, of Nelson, started
a ctoss-cut tunnel a short distance below the wagon bridge on.the';HGnlenn
Farm road, which crosses the property,
with the hi pe of finding the Noonday
ledge which crosses the propeity bnt
could not be found on the surface. The
running of this cross-cut. blind, was
made necessary by the fact that the
surface wash all over this claim is too
deep to allow of any surface indications of the ledge being shown, and
the only thing to do wus to get the
strike of the vein as near ns possible
nnd drive �� tunnel to cut it. The tunnel after being driven nearly 75 feet
encountred what is no doubt the Noonday vein. Tho vein where cut is nvrr
���iix feet wide ami is fiileu with i o
malter carrying n fair grade of con
nentrating ore. Drifting has been
started on the ledge and unless all indications are-ut fault it will uot be
long before we will be able to chronicle the cutting of another rich ore
sbute in this vein. The findiug of
the vein on the Freddy only leaves one
claim, the Adelu, between tho Noonday aud the Lake on which this vein
has not been found, aud whereyei
cut it has been found to contain pay
