if cases dealt
WITH IESTEEDAI
A Charge of Fradulently Disposing of Property.
LAST CRIMINAL CASES
Brewster Sentenced to Fifteen Months in
Jail���Opening of the Civil OaBos���
Macdonald & Oo. vs. Hartuiau.
At the opening of the Court today
Mr. Gallilior appeared on behalf of the
Hamilton Powder Company to plead
to the indictment peiferred by the
Grand Jury with reference to tlio powder magazine. Tlio Giant Powder Company, also indicted, did not appear, and
it was understood that they had not
yet been served. Mr. Gallilior was told
by his clients to take his instructions
from their lawyers in Victoria and
that as, in addition to those instructions he would require certain papers
aud doouments as to title before he
oould go ou with tbo case he craved
tbe indulgence of tho Court and asked
for an adjournment.
The judge pointed out to Mr. Caliber that the question of title could
have no possiblo effect where the of-
ence was a nuisance. However as it
was desirable to take both indictments
at the same time tlio case would havo
to stand over unti 1 tbo next assize.
The judge went on to say that as the
parties had been indicted tbeir position was entirely obanaged. If instead
of at ouco setting to work to remove the
nuisance they allowed the "status
quo" to exist tbey prejudiced their
case. Ho strongly advised them to do
what was in tbeir power to remove
the present magazine aud so render
any further legal proceedings unnecessary.
The first case taken yesterday wns
that of Regir.a vs. Baunett. The prisoner was charged witb having fraudulently disposed of property with intent
to defraud his creditors. Tho Deputy
Attorney-General prosecuted. The
case for the Crown was that certain
stores had been delivered by tbo accused to one Samuel Glazan a short time
before, he (tbo accused) made an assignment fur the benefit of his creditors, aud that the said stores were,
either not paid for, or, if paid fur,
then the money received by tbe accused
for them bad not been accounted for
to tbe trusteo (under tbe assignment.
Mr. J. A. Macdonald of Rossland,
for the defenco maintained that the
salo to Glazan was a bona-fido one iu
tbo course of business and that tbo
present charge a^ains thot accused
was the result of a conspiracy against
him on the part of the Crown witnesses. He then proceeded to attack
tho characters of the said witnesses,including Glazou.
The judge in summing up laid stress
on the fact that tbo most important
point in the case was for the Ciowu
to show when the stores had been delivered to the accused. On this point
however no evidence had been produced. The jury acquitted the prisoner
without leaving tho box.
The prisoner Henagor who had been
convicted for attoinptotd incest was
then brought up for sentence. Qnes
tinned by the judge he said that he
was uot guilty aud pleaded for mercy.
The judge, however, did not take the
prisoner's view of tho case, but, after
commenting severely on tho heinous-
ness of tho crime as "repulsive even
to bnrbarity," he sentenced the prisoner to six vears in tho peuitenitary.
Brewster, was brought up for sentence aud said that his only fault was
his endeavor to shield bis friend ; he
had not had a cent ont of the missing
money,and,as be had already been four
mouths in prison, and had lost his position, h3 trusted the judge wonld be
merciful. He was sentenced to 16
months in jail.
Sinclair then was put in tho dock.
He pleaded his ago (48), familv and
former good character. The juigo, in
sentencing bin said that, though be
was sorry for him the interests of society in general must be preserved nud
he sentenced him to two years in the
penitentiary.
This brought to a close tho criminal
ensos for tho assizo.
Then oaine the civil cases. The action of A. Macdonald & Co. vs. 8. A.
1 larlman of Rosslaud was for the sum
of $450, tho price of goods sold and delivered by tbe plaintiff to the defendant. The goods had been according to
the instructions of the defendant,
shipped on board tho stoamor AinB-
Worth, destined for Knsknnnok, bnt
were lost whon that steaimr flank.
A defenoe was put in bnt when the
case was called the defendant's counsel
(Mr. J. A. Macdonald, of Rossland)
admitted thnt he could not sustain the
defence. Judgment was then fore given for tho plaintiff for the full amount
claimed with costB. Tbe defendant
also sought, to make the owners of the
Ainsworth contribute bnt this was disallowed by tbo court. Mr. S. S. Taylor, Q. 0., appeared for tbe  plaintiffs.
The case of Darts vs. St. Korvorno
raised a most interesting legal point
in mining laws on which thore has
not as yet been any decision.
This was a "special" oase to decide
on a point of law as to whether a por-
sou may lneato, and obtain a Crown
grant for, a mineral olaim uponj two
separate portions or plots nf  ground.
Tbo plaintiff, who claimed au adverse, contended tbat a olaim could
not be so located because the Mineral
Act required that a claim should bo
located on "a plot of ground. "
The defense maintained that the
spirit of the Act went to show that so
long as a mineral claim did uot exceed
the legal measure of 1,500 feet by
1,500 feet it did not matter bow it was
located. Mr. Justice Drake reserved
judgment, tbo which will be availed
wi'b interest by the legal fraternity of
this Province. Messrs. Bowes and
Wragge appeared for the plaintiff.
Mr. Wilson, (0, C, and Mr. Elliot for
tho defendant.
The oourt then adjourned.
Today it is expected that the railway dispute re the Lardo-Dnncau extension will come beforo tbe court.
Messrs. Davies and Bodwell representing
tbe rival companies   aro now iu town.
Two interesting actions have been
commenced today. Tbe plaintiff iu
both onsen is Mr. Max Johnson (who
hns already achoived notoriety in his
deal witb the UniteC States Government iu reindeer foi tbe Klondike;
and, locally,as a wonlc. be oity scavenger at the rate of $3 per bouse.) In
oue action be claims $8500 from the
Crow's Nest Coal Company for damages for breach of contract in connection with the building of miners' residences at Fernie and also tor a balance on trading account.
The other action is for an account
from Mr. Blakemoro. the manager of
the Crow's Nost Coal Company : further, for dlamages for fradnlent management of Mr. Johnson's property
when be was in England ; and also
for the payment over of certain moneys received by the defendant Blakemoro belonging to Mr. Johnson.
Messrs. Taylor & Hanniugton'are
tho solicitors on the oase for Mr. Max
Johnson.
REGISTRY OFFICE
TEN THOUSAND DOLLARS HAS BEEN
SECURED.
renders Will Be Calledjfor at Onoe, and
No Time .Will Be Lost in
the Building.
Mr. Fred Hume has induced the
Government to couseut to appropriate
$10,000 (instead of $0,000 as was originally intended) for the building of
tbo now Land Registry Office. The
work is to bo commencod as soon as
tenders can be called for and the contract let.
The great inconvenience caused in
the transfer of real property owing to
the fact thta all deeds have to be sent
to Victoria for registration is, alas,
ouly too well known.
Parties have been kept waiting
sometimes for mouths owing to a
"block" or some othor trouble, real or
imaginary, at the 'Victoria Land Registry office.
It is refreshing to know that the
Nelson Land Registry will soon be an
accomplished fact. Mr. Hume thinks
that Nelsou peoplo shonld know that
ho still has some regard for their interests, reports to the contrary notwithstanding.
THE FRENCH SHORE QUESTION.
Tho New British   Commodore   Pursuing a Different Policy.
St. John, Nfld., June 7.���The British cruiser Comus, Commodore Giffard
the flagship of the fisheries protootiou
squadron in Newfoundland waters, ar
rived here yesierday from its first visit
to the French treaty Bbore. Commodore Giffard is pursuing a policy altogether different to his predeossor,
Commodore Bourko Ho refused to nd-
judicnto upon local civil cases arising
along tho coast and turus them over
for consideration to the Colonial mag-
iBtratoa. Commodore Giffard nlso declines to recognize thu status of petits
pecheuifl, or boat fishermen, from St.
Pierie, who squat along tho coast
aud he will only recognize such deep
sea fishing vcssols as prosecute their
industry in the mannor ptescribed by
ancient treaties. His nttitnde is regarded as evidencing a change of policy on the part of tho British ministry
and as shadowing a speedy adjust
ment of the difficulty. It is hailed
with general satisfaction.
PABLIAHENT TAKES UP
ANTI-COMBINE BILL
Leather Combine Especially
Dealt With-
A   DIFFICULT   CLAUSE
Lively Discussion as to the Best Way to
Deal With   Ooinbinet���Free
Trade Only Cure.
Ottawa, Out, Jnne 7.��� There was
a prolonged discussion at the banking
and commerce committee today on Dr.
Sproule's anti-combine bill. The bill
comprises one clause, which is merely
to strike out tho words "unduly and
unreasonably" restraining and restricting trade unless words were put in by
tbe senate.
Sir John Thompson was minister of
justice when the code was amended in
tho third section now proposed by Dr.
Sproulo, but the Senate destroyed its
usefulness by inserting tbe words mentioned.
Dr. Sproule gave the leather oom-
bine as a good reason why his bill
should become known. He did so in
reply to Osier who retorted that if
things wero as reported by Dr. Sproule
the leather combination was both unreasonably and unduly affecting trade.
Mr. Bertram maintained tbat the
proper way to deal with combinations, was under the section of tariff
which provided that when a combination existed in any trade the goods
infected be pnt on the free list. That
was in his opinion, the only cure. He
had no sympathy with combinations,
or anything that destroyed competition. He pointed to the growth of
combines in tbe United States aud
said that Canada shonld avoid this.
Mr. Ganong: "Would Mr. Bertram place leather on the free list?"
Sevoral voices: "And crush out the
small manufacturer."
Mr. Bertram said that* where a
combine was discovered he would deal
with it under the tariff.
Mr. MoOarthy said: That "he did
not see that conviction would be secured if the words were  struck  out."
Dr. Russell (Halifax) said: "That
Sir John Thompson knew what he
was doing wheu he left those words
out.''
Mr. Clark Wallace strongly supported the bill and Mr. McMull enondorsed
what Mr. Wallace had said.
Dr. Rutherford also spoke in f jvor of
the bill as did Mr. Hughes. The bill
was reported.
LYNCHING     AND     EXECUTION.
How Justice Is Administered in the
Southern States.
Birmingham, Ala., June 7.���Will
Hill, alleged accomplice of his brother,
Alexander Hill in the murder of Mr.

oution. The wife of the murdered

This makes 1,437 Cubans paid by Colonel Randal so far.

A. M'KILLOP,
Chairman.
Nelson, B. C, June 7, 1899.
By-laws, 46, 47, and 48, providing
for taxation in accordance with {the
Finance Committees' report were then
read for tbe first and second time
By-law 25, relating to the revision
and consolidation of the City by-laws
was then discussed and the Council resolved into a committee of the whole
to consider it with Alderman MoKillop
in the chair.
Aid. Fletcher said that tho new bylaws had not been read since thev had
been revised for the second time by
Messrs. Tapper, Peters & Potts, and
questioned the wisdom of accepting
tbem practically unread.
Aid. Beer thought no by-law
should be passed which was not going
to be enforced. He referred particularly to thoso by-laws which called for
the removal of streot signs aud verandas.
Aid, Fletoher thought tbat the bylaws should be read  before   discussed.
The Oity Clerk when questioned
said he had not compared the revised
copy with their draft. The City solio-
i'or said he had not thought it necessary to read the revised by-laws as
Messrs. Tapper, Peters & Potts had
already been paid over $300 for so doing.
The committee decided thoy should
aocept the bylaws so revised as correct,
olerioal errors being provided for when
they would bo printed.
Aid. Beer then discussed the advisability of putting a stop to the "nickel
in the slot" machines. He pointed
out that Nelson a was growing place
with a number of young people in it
and tbat these machines were a constant source of temptation. He bad
known one young man lose ovor $10
in a machine.
Aid. Thomson thought tbr.t anyone
over 18 who was fool enough to waste
as much as $10 on a slot machine deserved to lose his money.
Aid.    Boer then went on to  suggest
the closing of saloons at  midnight  on
I work day * and  all   day  on   Sundays.
Ho said that the town was too noisy on
Sunday.
Aid. Fletcher said that he and Aid.
Thomson bad given the towu a gen-
eral inspection lust Sandfly and hnd
come to the conclusion that it was the
nnietest town ou Sundays on the Paolflo Coast.
Other existing nuisances were also
discussed. It was agreed that transfers  of  liquor    licenses  should    be
charged $36.
The committee then reported progress and tbe Oonnoil resumed the sitting.
By-law 3'.i was rend a third time.   It
was   resolved   that   tender!   be called
for the erection of Ore alarms
the following street corners, viz:
Kootenav and Baker, Hendryx and linker, Front anil Hall. Stanley and Silica, Observatory nnd Josephine, Billon
nnd Hendryx, Ward ami Vernon, and
Observatory and Josephine BtreetR,
Tho committee   appointed   to confer
with tbe chief of the tire department
recomm Hided tbe appointment of Wil
limn Pfeiffer as care taker and assistant. The report was adopted. Tbe
brigade will be reduced to 1-1 members
on the first of .lulv.
Mr. .lubu Elliot appeared I of ore
the Council and 'cquo-ted the appoint
ment of fence ci uissioners according to the regulations of the municipal not. Tho town was getting so large
that people desired to fence in their
lots and it was for the Oity to appoint
mon who should deoide boundaries
and settle who wore to pay cos's ol
fencing, The Council then appointed
Messrs. Scions. Ward and Hodglns as
fence commissioners.
It was decided to pluce the City
scales nt the corner of Ward street opposite tbo Hume llotol aud to appoint
a caretaker for the same.
Tho acquisition of the recreation
ground was then discussed. Aid.
Fletcher thought the present ground
inadequate in size: Moreover there
was a road way   through   it.    Ho sug-

Information was received lato last
night (on unimpeachable authority)
that tho "cause celebre" between the
O. P. R. and the Kaslo-Slocau Ky.,the
rival raliway companies ovor tbo Lnr-
do-Duucau Pass has been settled. Tbe
oxact terms have not yet been made
publio but tho most important fact
gleaned is that both companies aro to
havo a right of usor to tho Pass. One
effect of tbo present legal entanglement
has been to establish a cordial entente
between tbo   two companies.
This is as it should bo ami ia sure
to enure for the benefit uf tho'country,
more particularly of Nelson. The
cuso caused considerable iutcrest iu
town, the gathering of lawyers at the

A telegram was received at 1 o'clock
this afternoon from Milner stating tbat
President Kruger obstinately refuses
nil concessions teudiug toward settlement of tho Transvaal difficulties. Upon receiving tho despatch Seoretary
Chamberlain, Lord Selbourne and
others held a consultation concerning the failure of negotiations, which
creates a serious situation.
Brussels, June 7 ���Doctor Loyds,
European representative of Transvaal
received official despatches from Pretoria confirming the report of the failure of President Kruger and British
High Commissioner Sir Alfred Milner
to reach au agreement ut the conference just held at Bloemfontein. It is
added that although President Kruger
offered important concessions he made
them contingent upon British acceptance of tbo principle of arbitration on
differences existing between Great
Britain and Trausvual. Tbis Great
Britain heretofore has refused on the
ground that it was an acknowledgment
of the equality of tbe two countries.
According to the despatch received by
I Jr. Leyds, President Kruger proposed
that a sojourn of two years bo noues-
snry for naturalization and that the
l'nII franchise be acquirable flvo years
later coupled with proporty and other
qualifications. The British High
Commissioner regarded tho proposal as
insufficient and made n counter proposal. President Kruger it is further
asserted intends to submit both proposals to the Volksraad subject to the
favorable decision of Great Britain relative to arbitration.

PRESERVE THE TREES.
The destruction of   tree  life may
havo less influence in  disturbing the
climatic conditions of a mountainous
country  than  of a level one.   But  if
it were true, that is no reason why we
should be indifferent to the slow  process of denuding that goes on in   Brit
ish   Columbia   without  ceasing.    Although   the   influence   may   be    less,
there is by no means an entire absen ce
of  it. and   without   trees   we  should
probably find   tbe  conditions   in  tbis
Province  very   much altered   for  the
worse.   For  several  days recently a
forest fire raged but a mile or two baok
of Nelson, and it does not seem to have
been   anyone's   business   to  manifest
the least  concern   over  it.    The  fire
burned until   one   or two heavy  rain
storms put it out.    If it had not been
for these it wonld be burning yet, and
a larger surface would   have  been devested.    As it was it consumed several
bnildings,   which    are   neither  here
nor there in this oonneotion,   for they
oan be restored if necessary; it also destroyed   tree growth over a   considerable araa, whioh matters a great  deal,
for that   is   something  which  oannot
be restored in an ordinary lifetime.
Ours is an immense Province, end
parts of it are still strangers to the feet
of white men. Bnt wherever tbe white
man has been he has left a scar in the
form of a bnrnt waste. The defacement of Nature would seem to be bis
one great mission on earth. He will
soon have covered all parts of it, for in
his search for the preoious metals he
will go everywhere. Within half an
ordinary lifetime there will scarcely
be a mountain in British Columbia
that has not been scaled or a vallov
that has not been explored, and along
the trail of every prospector or other
adventurer there will be found the
charred stumps of those trees that now
give moisture to the atmosphere, replenish onr lakes and livers, and contribute to a climate that is one of the
most delightful in the world. And
our rulers at Viotoria will continue
the same old indifference to the destruction that is going on. It is only
the trees out on mountains where no
one lives, and why bother about thorn ?
When we realise that all the mountains bave been denuded, or nearly so,
and that tho precipitation of moisture
has been greatly affected in consequence, we shall bave grievous reason
to lament that all the bother necessary to proteot the forest growth of the
Provinoe had not been taken.
There was wanton destruction in the
fire at tbe rear of Nelson a few days
ago. It could only have started
through the criminal carelessness of
Home person. If the commercial or
industrial damage had been many times
greater tban it was, it is possible some
move would have been made to inquire
into it. But as the immense injury
it did was to Nature, and only indirectly to man, there does not seem to
be a creature in tbe Province whose
business it is to give it a thought.
Wo look on with as much indifference
as if tbe destruction of hundreds of
acres of tree growth were a matter for
congratulation. If there are laws to
preserve onr forests, and provision
made for the administration of those
laws, tbe men in authority should
bave them enforced. For if this neglect is permitted to continue, the day
will surely come when the people of
British Colnmbia will regie t tbat better pare was not taken of the trees
that do so much to affect our climate
and tbat so pleasantly vary the sublimity of the scenery.
For several days the   Victoria   Government havo been considering   a   remonstrance  made by   the President of
the United   States   against   tbe   anti-
alien mining law.    It was sent to   Ottawa, and from there forwarded to Mr.
Semlin with a  request  to know what
be had to say  about it.   Complaint is
made tbat Americans who had  staked
claims before the law was passed; have
not been allowed   to   work them ; also
tbat Amerioaus have  been   prevented
from working  even an  laborors.    Mr.
Semlin is understood to  deny   both of
these allegaf ioiiM.     The several  representations   of  the   petition  whioh  is
made the basis of the   President's   ro-
monstrnnoe may not be   literally   cor-
reot, but that tbe   legislation   was  an
unfriendly act, so far as our neighbors
have to do with it, and a short sighted
and foolish one itself is, unfortunately,
only too true.

Neville, Upset  Prom  a  Oanoe
in Duck Lake.
Creston, June 0. ���An unfortunate
drowning aooident occurred at Sirdar
12 miles west of here on the evening
of June 4, by which Arthur Vernon
Neville a young man aged 22, a native of Winnipeg, lost his|life. It appears that Neville and George Paskin
the operator at Sirdar were canoeing
on Duok Lake nnd were returning
for supper about 5 :ib when by some
unaccountable means the canoe upset
when about 100 yards from shcre. Pas-
kin managed to reach shore safely
but poor Nevillo sank and did not
come up again. The body was recovered
on the morning of June 5 and taken
to Creston where it was viewed by
Coroner Mallandaine.who after looking
into the circumstances concluded the
death was accidental and did not consider it necessary to hold an inquest.
The remains were taken to Winnipeg
where the parents reside.
Neville wan universally liked by all
tbe train men aloug the Crow's Nest
line on wbioh he was a brakemnn and
great regret is felt at his untimely
death.
If you see it in The  Miner's Special
Kootenay Number it will be true.
POUR  MURDER   CASES   ENDED.
The gerrymander of 1882 took violent liberties with many of the county
boundaries in Ontario. There is no
disputing tbat, and present Ministers
have a good defenoe of tbe Bill tbat is
intended to reotify some of the evils
then oommitted. But tbe Ministerial
Press are not satisfied with this,
which gives rise to the suspicion
that something more tban a restoration
of county boundaries is at the bottom
of it. Tbey make other exouses and
enter other defences. They rest somewhat heavily for the popular verdiot
on the provision which gives to the
Judges the duty of dividing up the
contsituenoies,and olaim that it makes
the measure an improvement on the
British system. Here is tbe mistake
of trying to prove too muoh. Under
the Ottawa Bill tbe Judges are a very
harmless sort of agenoy. The Bill
does everything of real importance.
It reconstitutes the counties, and says

Mr. 0. J. 't'hyune who represents
Messrs. PilkiiiKtoii & Co., n large linn
of glass manufacturers in England, has
been in Nelson on business during the
past tow days. Mr. Tliynne, who is n
keen sportsman, having completed
(and successfully too), his firm's business, has turned his attention to the
sporting men and matters hero.
Ho has suggested to one or two local
"sports" that it would bo well to form
a club in Kelson upon the same hues
as tho Vanoouver l'orest aud Stream
club. These lines are, briefly to (it)
get together men who have a love of
sport; (,i) to foi in a "combine"

Most of the laud on the railway side
of tho river at Ward's Crossing belongs to tho 0. P. R. If fenced iu and
leased to some one who might pay
for the "watching" of the water by
the hire of boats, the "not huuters"
could be kept out. Possibly a sporting
club, if formed, might make some
terms with the C. P. R. At auy rale
it is olear that in the interests of the
town something should be douo to protect oue of tho most attractive forms
of ricreation wo have here. Unity is
strength and therefore au association
of those who take a keen interest in
such matters should be encouraged.
Mr. Thyuue has promised Jo send a

dies. The archibshops of Canterbury
and York listened to much learned
testimony and argument on the subject
in the guard room of Lambeth Palace
yesterday. One of the counsel for the
Rev. Henry Westell, Vicar of St. Cuth-
berts. Philbeach Gardens, produced in
triumph conclusive historical authority for the statement that candles in
ohuroh were used in the presence of
that bulwark of Protostauism, tjueou
Elizabeth.
This seemed to tho unlearned among
the audience to settle the matter for
good and all. But the counselor of the
low church side was soon on his feet
with proof that on the very occasion
cited by bis opponent good CJueen Bess
had cried impatiently:
"Away with those torches we see
very well."
This seemed to leave tbe question
very much where tho archbishop had
found it. oxcept in so far as it had
been shown that Elizabeth, Defender
of the Faith, thought daylight a sufficient illumination for service.
Although their deoision cannot possibly be binding upon any body and
although London lias began to swelter
and to empty itself of fashion, their
graces of Canterbury and York show
no signs of the irksomeness of their
task, which they undertook in the
hope of keeping the squabbles in the
established church away from tho seo-
ular court popularly spoken of as the
"Archbishop's Court." The proceedings in the guard room form no court
at all any are officially designated the
" Archihsbop's hsnrins. " Union f���.
n��o bonrittg ..... ���.......;..o.i iu the prayer book and reads: "Parties who have
any doubt or diversely take anything,
shall always resort to the Bishop of the
Diocese, who shall take order for
quiatiug aid appeasing the same, and
if the bishop be in trouble, then he
may send for the resolution to the archbishop. "
One feature of the pocceedings is
that they are bringing to light many
quaint historical facts, Ancient records are being lutnmaged by both parties to tho dispute. Counsel for the
Rev. Wardram' the Norwich clergyman, who is accused by his bishop of
using incense in his church, has discovered in the archives of St. Michaels. Coriibill, this rule to be observed
by the vestry: "They shall provide
fire at such feasts, as incense is acous-
toiued to be offered into Almighty
God, with other things necessary to
the office, according to the solemnity
of the feast.''
Mr. Didbin, who appears for the
bishops, tried to offset this by maintaining that the inoenso was used
merely to fumigate the church. He
quoted as instance of anoient church
book keeping, when there was an
item, "for dressing tho ohnrch after
tho soldiers nnd for frank incense to
sweet it."
Also a record of St. Peters, Barnstaple, for toabeco and frank mcense
buruod in tho curoh. "
Bnt somo of the authorities oitod
are centuries older thnn protestanism.
Placain, whoso, "History of the
popes, " was written in tho 15th century has boon a tower of strength in
the rituals, ascribed the origin cf
inoenso to about 705���815. From a panegyric by Eusibus delivered at Tyre
in the year .112 to tho latest edition
Encyclopedia Britannic, no source of
enlightenment is neglected, although
the opponents of incense try to confine
the inquiry to the period of tho reformation.
Washington, Juue 7.���Late today
tbe officials here learned of details
of the latest negotiations in London
referred to in the cable despatches and
Secretary Hay and the British chnrge
d'affaires, Mr. Tower conferred cntie
suhjoct. The details of the portion
were not made public It is said, however, that ton much assurance should
not be taken that a complete aocord is
certain.
The officinls in London say thnt outlook is rather brighter because negotiations are on again, but they qnalifv
this by saying that the agreement is
not yet concluded and that when oon-
oluden it will still leave much to bo
settled by future negotiations. In
view of the fact, that tho protocol recording tho proceedings of the Joint
High Commission iu Washington on
February last has boon made public
in the Canadian Legislature while
an abstract of its contents has also
been published in Loudon at was a
publication of the entire protocol, this
particular protocol is regarded by the
department as of great importance, for
it marked tho failure of the commission under peculiar conditions.
The records show that the joint commission met at 10 o'clock in the
morning.

A western mining man, Mr. Allan

The Toronto Mpil his unbounded faith
in the Fairview oamp. Work on the

REPORT OF THE
FINANCE COMMITTEE
(Continued from Page 1.1
geBted tbat the 0. P. R. be approaoh-
ed on tbe matter and possibly they
would give tbe Oity 60 acres of suitable land near the oemetery if the
Oity would arrange with the Government to deed the present reoreation
ground to the  0. P. R.
The Mayor thought that the present
negotiations with the Government for
aoquirng a legal title to the reoreation
ground should be oarried out first of
all.
Aid. Fletoher thought otherwise
and finally it was decided for the spec
ial committee to report further on the
matter.
A letter from John Houston relating
to the late Council's accounts was read
and filed.
It was resolved that a water main
be laid on Carbonate street from Cedar
to Park streets; also that the sidewalk
ou Ward street, from Brokenhill
Block to the Hume Hotel, be relaid
and tbe steps removed.
A lengthy lettar from Mr. Campbell
of Rossland with reference to supplying eleotricity and power to the City,
whioh occupied over ten minutes in
reading was laid on the table for the
further consideration of the Council.
Aid. Kirkpatrick was appointed act
ing oity treasurer, Aid. McKillop declining the office on the plea of pres
sure of work.
The "niokel in the slot" question,
together with the strict observance of
Sunday closing by both saloons and
stores was then brought up by Alder
man . Beer. The same arguments
were' raised as when these matters
oome before the committee. Aid
Beer pointed out that be did not wish
to move a resolution (having already
movedfseveral wbioh had not been seo
onded) but wished to learn the feeling of the Council on these matters.
The rest of tbe Council seemed averse
to any definite action, but on the motion of Aid. Beer, seconded by Aid. Ma-
Killop, they deoided to draw the atten
tion of the police and license commissioners to the fact that ''nickel in
the slot'' maobines were in nse in the
City and   also  that  the  saloons  and
