Importance to discuss.
Mr. II. W. C. Jackson of Rossland,
secretary of the organization, arrived
ib the City this morning, l-i speaking of tho questions that would be
discussed he said:
"There are some questions which we
consider of importance to our association as they viitually effect the mining Industry, especially in connection
with lead. These arise from Mr. Sifton's announcement of a probable
mining commission and the discussion
Will be on the following questions:
'Shall the Association approve the
proposal of the Hon. Clifford Sifton,
Minister of the Interior, for the appointment of a Hpt'i-iul commission to
enquire into tlio relation uf the public
policy of the lleimiiiluii as to the mining industry, including tin' transport-
alion, smelting, refining and marketing of ores and their products?'
'"I'he next question to collie up Is,
'Shall the Association take any special
steps towards tho presentation to such
commission (if appointed) of facts or
arguments, or specific suggestions,
and shall the Association be allowed
to nominate one or more of the members of said commission'.'
���'if these questions aro approved
of," continued Mr. Jackson, "and if
such a commission be appointed then

Oovernment if it will not be allowed
to submit for the consideration of the
(lovernment, the mimes of a certain
number of gentlemen from amongst
whom the Government will select at
least one for membership on such

"We think that from the frequent
considerations given by our Association to this problem, that we are in a
position to nominate men peculiarly
well qualified to sit upon sueh a commission."
Other minor questions will also bo
brought up, and nmoug these will be
the question of joining this Associated Hoard of Trade witu that of the
Coast, thus forming a I'rovinclal Associated Hoard of Trade.

CASTELLANES TO FIGHT.
Sensational Allegations Are Made in
the Answer   They Have Filed.
New York, Dec. 12.���A dispatch to
The World from Paris says:
Sensational allegations arc made by
the Count and Countess de Castellane
in their answering affidavits, just completed, and to be Issued in conjunction witli tho injunction proceedings
pending in the Supreme Court of New
York against Georgo J. Edwiu, Howard and Helen M. Gould, as trustees
of the estate of the late J. Gould.
Count Boni dc Castellane and the
Countess Anna are intensely indignant that any attempt should be made
In the American courts to deprive
them of their Inoomo fiom the Gould
estate.   They   retaliateJ by   waking
counter charges of lack of good faith
against Asher Wcrthoimor, tho London dealer in articles of vertu, brlo-
a-brac and oilier luxuries who, seeing
no other prospect of being speedily
paid the 8885,000 he alleges the Cos-
tellanos owe him, assigned his claim
lo Anton J. Detimar, of New York,
and thus brought on the present legal
complications.
The count and countess ask the
court to vacate the injunction proceedings first on tho ground that
the Wertheimer claims are excessivo;
that the countess really owes him
nothing and that some of the extraordinary high-priced antiques, for
which thousands of Gould dollars were
plodged, were not what they were
represented to be. Iu fact, the
count and countess Intimate a desire
to prove that certain mirrors bought
for large sums are not genuine antiques.
Probably the strangest point In
their affidavit is the allegation that
their indebtedness to Wertheimer for
goods actually supplied does not exceed and never did amount to 8385,-
000. They claim that $120,000 of this
big sum is accrued.interest, for which
they disclaim all responsibility.
Ihe Countess Anna sets up as another and distinct reaBon why the injunction should bu vacated, the declaration that Wertheimer retains in
his possession art objeetB belonging to
her which she values at from 830,000
to 8100,000 and that she is about to
bring suit to recover this amount.
As a final point tho Castellanes allege that they have property in France
worth more than three times the
amount of Wertlieimer's and all allied
claims and that they aie able to satisfy   them.
The count and countess then supplicate the Supreme Court of the city and
county of New York not to impose
an injunction on the continued and
regular payment of their income from
the estate of Jay Gould.
GOING TO   THE COAST.
Tod Sloan Talks About Ills Plans For
the Future.
Chicago, Dec. 12.���James Tod
Sloan, accompanied hy a retinue of
servants, arrived from New York yesterday afternoon, and waB driven to

will pay a visit to hiB old home at
Kokomo, Ind., then proceeding to the
Paclflc Coast, where he hopes to accept a few mounts.
In regard to the announcement in
the racing calendar, Sloun said:
"Naturally, it is a subject on which
I care to say little. I have not been
ruled oft the track, and If I apply for
a license I am to be refused. I must
wait for a definite announcement. The
only change in my plans will be that
I shall return to England earlier, try
to have a talk witli the stewards, and
at any rate ask a hearing."

PRINCE   OF   WALES   MAY   COME.
'rospect of Added Interest to the
Ruces For the Auierieu's Cup.
Now York, Dee. 12.���A dlspnteli
to Tile .T.ournul und Advertiser from
London Buys: Either the Prince of
Wales or the Duko of York will probably attend the America's cup nice
next August, if political and social
conditions at that time penult. The
prince would much like to   attend.
An Intimation has been conveyed
that if proper ollicial representation
be made the prince would lie pleased
to consider them favorably. Tho
prince lias become moro deeply inter -
cstetl in yachting than ever, and intends going in strongly fur it next
yenr, watching tlie course of events in
connection witli Lipton's challenge
closely, lle will attend the trial ruces
between the two Shamrocks next
spring, und will probably sail on
the new bout.
The proper course for Americans to
get tlie prince over is for private diplomatic negotiations to he conferred
on the president that the prince's
visit would be most acceptable, nnd
then for the commodore of the New
York Yacht Club to invite the prince
to attend the races.
If the prince should huve a royal
yucht at New York, he would witness
the ruces on that, otherwise on Lip-
ton's Erin.
If conditions prevent the prince
from going, the Duke of York, probably on his way homo from Australia
via Canadu, may go to New York for
the races.
It can bo stated authoritatively
that the leports thut Lipton is building the mysterious yucht on the Clyde
for presentation to the Prince are untrue. The Prince could not accept it,
nor would Lipton make such a present. The prince and Lipton spend
throe days together next week at the
country house of Sir Edward Luhoii.
where yachting mutters will be discussed.

line received the following  statement:
"South Africa seriously needs tho
services of tlie great peacemaker. My
intimate knowledge of Mr. Rhodes'
Opinion nt this moment causes me to
have little doubt   thnt   he intends   to
take advantage of tbe unparalleled opportunity now open to him. Ho may
bo expected tu come out shortly as an
advocnto of conciliatory measures
likely to cud the war, and to make
the situation afterward tolerable to
both races. Even the Dutch, ns much
ns they bate Cecil Rhodes, feel that
there Is no other man who could succeed in the undertaking suggested.
There is absolutely no ilnulit that the
wave of conciliation is rapidly gathering strength. "
Last week I wired that Mr." Rhodes

Booth Afiica. That plan embraces
his scheme uf conciliation nml pacification. It offers the belligerent Dutch
terms of settlement so liberal that its
author believes they would readily

to the Senators, who, instead of being
nominaten, like ou.s, by the Crown,
ore elected by the people of the State;
and not for life, but for a term of six
yours. The difference with iega:d to
tho amendment of the constitution is
mure apparent than real; the Australians aru to havo the power of amendment, but subject to Imperial disallowance; while in the ease of Canada
tho British North America Act cun
be amended only by the Parliament by
which it was made. The practical upshot, however, would bo that while
Australiu would proceed by^legislation
subject to disallowance, Canada would
proceed by petition, to which, if the
proposed amendment wns reasonable,
the Imperial Parliament would no
doubt give ear. The Auslialian feder
ation will really belong to the same
class of political institutions as ours.
It will be, not like the United States
during the Revolutionary war, or the
Swiss Bund in former days, a fedora
tion proper, the States retaining their
sovereignty and thu Federal Assembly
having no general powers of taxation
or legislation; but a nation with federal structure like tho Canadian Dominion and the, United States, as
they now arc, wilh a National
I.egisture, exercising general legislative and taxing powers. Australia,
however, like Canada, preserves the
deud-wood of the llrltisn constitution.
The appotnment of the Executive is
legally vested in a Governor-General,
jeproseiiting the Crown. Practically,
of cnurse, it is Intended that Ihe Ministers shn'l be designated, as they are
here, by the choice of the peuple. In
Canada that choico is signified
through organised parties, taken over
fniiii the period before Confederation.
Australia, so far as we know, has no
BUCh parties. How Iii her case Is the
choico of the people to be made
known'.' How is the Execiitivo to be
designated'.' This is a practical question, the solution of which it will be
interesting to sec."
"Another illusliatlon of   the policy
of this Government to   refer   Interna
tlonnl disputes to   impartial   arb'tra
tion," says I'resident McKinley in his
Messngo, "Is  seen   In the   agreement
reached with   Rnssla,"   etc.    It   is a
poliey that is noted   upon   only when
It suits tho   fancy   or  Interest of  our
friends ut Washington.    In   a dispute
over a boundary line It is most natu
al that eilch of tlie pnrtlcs to it should
give the Interpielution   thnt   Is   most
fnvorablc   to   itself.    This   Is   iuvuri
ably the case,   and   wbenevor   It   becomes tmposible to reconcile   the   opposing contentions n rcsoit is hud  to
tile judgment of others. A disputed
boundary might never bo Bettlcd otherwise The United States recognised
this in the case of thnt Venezuelnn
affair, and Insisted thi't It be referred
to urli'it 1; ion us the only solution of
the difficulty. It does not think it
necessary, however, to apply the principle to the dispute over the Alaskan
boundary. It stands out for the extreme limit of its claim. In this sumo
Message, which speaks of arbitration
as the accepted policy of the Government, it says in reference tothe modus
vivendl; "But however necessary
such an expedient may have been to
tide over the grave emergencies of the
situation, It Is at best bnt an ttnsatll
factory makeshift, which should not
be suffered to delay the speedy and
complete establishment of the frontier
line to which we aro entitled under
the Russo-American treaty fur the cession of Alaska, " No talk here nf arbitration,    The frontier line  claimed
by tlie Americans is the one to which
they are entitled and which they must
have; the contention of the other
party to the dispute is not to be considered. As practised by our neighbors, their poliey of arbitration Is a
very convenient one.
The closing paragraph of   I'resident
McKinley's   Message to Congress oon-
tains theso words: "In our great prosperity we must guard against the danger it invites of extravagance in Government expenditure and appropriations! and the chosen representatives
of the people will, 1 doubt not, furnish an example in their legislation
of that wise economy which in u season of plenty husbands for tho future." It Is unfortunate for the United States that its commercial prosperity is thus subject to variation,
Tlie rulers of that country huve evidently something to learn. In Cnnada
ve also have good times; but ns they
have been produced for us by a Liberal Government ut the Federal capital
they are assured to us forever, if we
but have tho good sense to retain that
party in power. The people of tho
United States should look about for a
politic.;! party that can create prosperity and prolong it, like the Canadian Liberals! there would then be no
need of vulgar oeonoiry.
Some remarks in The Winnipeg Tribune may cause profitable rellection
in Labor circles of this district:
"Mr. Puttee did all that wus possible
at tliis distance to help Mr. Foley.
But where was Balph Smiih, tho
British Columbia labor loader? He
was not in Nanaimo or Vancouver Island, In own home, lie was taking
part in tbe elections. But ho was not
helping Mr. Foley. Whi'e Mr. Sifton
was working to defeat the Labor
candidate in Ynlc-Cariboo, Ralph
Smith was winking In the very next
constituency to elect Mr. Sifton's candidate. As u Labor representative in
Parliament we fancy Mr. Smith will
bu much jno c useful to Mr. Sifton
than to the Labor party."
In New Brunswick M.OOO Liberal
votes elected nine members, while 32,-
000 Conservatives voi.es cou'il only
manage live. It wns even worse in
Nova Scotia, the figures being !i4,000
Liberal votes and fourteen members,
against six members for 51,000 Conservative votes. We do not know
whether it will be a dlsappoinment
or a relief to the Ministers at Ottawa
to thus learn that it will not be ne-
cossary to extend the forthcoming gerrymander to those Provinces.

Although many jewelers advertise
"something now In rings," the fnct remain! that they are but slight variations
ef tha styles In vogue nt the time Moson
piloted the children of Israel out of the
bondage of Egypt Kings are alluded to
In tha Bible tn the books of Genesis and
Exodus. They have been found among
tha relics of prehistoric races, tho stone
ago, the bronze sge and the age of the
mound builders. Herodotus mentions
that the Babyloninns wore them, and
from Asia they probubly were introduced
Into Greece.
The rings worn In early times were not
purely ornamental, but hud their slgnlfl-
oancc as signet rings.    A king's messen-
Sr delivering a messnge aud exhibiting
a.king's signet ns nuthorlty was obeyed
Implicitly. The Uomiins had a mnrrluge
ring of Iron with n Jewel of adamant, signifying eternity and constancy. History
mentions u magic ring possessed by King
Solomon, of which the Jews nnd Medium-
medans huve ubundnnt traditions. It
Was by means of this ring as a talisman
���f wisdom and power thut Solomon wus
enabled to perform thoso wonderful nets
���nd accomplish those vast enterprises
that' havo mnde his nnme so celebrated
as the wisest monurch of the earth. The
later Romans wore n profusion of rings,
and the more effeminate had ring* for
summer and winter
Hon- to Tilt the lint.
Tha arrangement of tho hair in tho
Map* of the neck is one which creates
great dlllictiltlos In millinery matters.
Nothing Is more terrlblo or disfiguring to
th* contour of tho fnce than u gup between tho crown of tho lint nnd the
Colls of the hair. Yet many, many girls
���re to be seen who ullow themselves to
be such objocts.

Worn, setting In absolutely a straight
line across the head, and coming low
down on the forehuad, with tho rosult
that becomingness is reduced to a minimum.
The angle for tho hnt when tho coiffure
ll low Is slightly off the forehead when
tbo cOmb, now so much In vogue, is inserted nt the base of the crown coils.
Then the hat tips slightly downwurd.
Another method of disguising tbe vncu-
nm between the crown and coiffure is to
hnvo a half circle of flowers, preferably
���rush roses, boneath tho brim; but this
to only when the hut is of a fancy straw.
Such as the glossy kind which this season

TMneleiem' Employment Dnrean.
"In several of our lurge cities there are
established tenchers' agencies, which nre
really professional 'intelligence officos.' In
them are kept the names of all those who
have made applications for positions,
With lnfoiillation and references concerning them, those Items being ut the service of any one desirous of obtaining a
teacher," snys Tho Ludios' Home Journal. "The enndiduto pays to the ngency
about (2 for the privilege of having her
flame registered aud about 5 per cent of
her salary for one or two years after securing a position. The agency is In correspondence with schools nnd teachers all
Over th* country, nud in this wny a large
���umber of positions nre obtained."
OrlKln of the Fnn.
The uso of tho fan originated in China
and sprnng from the following incident:
A royal prlncoss, very beautiful, wns ns-
���Istlng nt tho fenst of lanterns, her faco
covered with a mask, as usual. The excessive heat compelled her to remove It,
���nd in order to guard her features from
the common gaze she moved It quickly
to and fro in front of her face, thus
Simultaneously hiding her churms and
Cooling licr brow. The Idea was ut once
adopted throughout the kingdom. Cnth-
erino do' Medici curried tho first fun from
Italy over seen in France, nnd iu the
time of Louis XIV the fnn covered with
Jewels wbb worth a smnll fortune
Rath For the Hair.
Light hair shonld be washed often and
dried In the sun. A tnlilespoonful of
hoiisohold nmmonla added to each bufln
ef water used In washing assists materially In keeping it light. Dnrk lifclr
���hould be dried In tho shnde, or It will
fade In streaks. But If the dark haired
girl wishes to lighten her tresses without
��� bleach sho can accomplish something
la thnt direction by adding borax to th*
Water and, ufter drying the hair in tho
���hade, giving it a "sun bnth" as often
���a practicable. During the sun bath the
hair should be spread und sunken out
constantly, that the i u.vh may reach all
the roots alike.
Ten Table Etiquette,
__ A hundred years ago there was a
Quaint tea table etiquette. It was considered a lack of courtosy to take much
cream or sugar In one's tea. Etiquette
demrnded that the ten should be tnsted
from the spoon and thut the hostess
���hould then luquiro, "Is your tea agreeable?" Modern women would be shocked
by a fashionable lady of those days who
cooled hor tea with her breath. Tet
loung wrote of a certain bewildering Lady Betty:
Her two red Up* atfootod suphyrB blew
To oool the Bohea and Inflame, the bean,
While one white linger and a thumb conspire

NEWS OF I
THE TOWN j
><yWWWIMMWV%W.,.^VeAt
Thomas Egan, who was before Magistrate Crease yesterday on the oharge
of an attempt at robbery was before
the Court again this morning. After
hearing the evidence the Magistrate
dismissed the case as the charge was
not proven.
Mr. Thomas Lester Lillie and Miss
Maud Stoppford Lowe, both of this
City, were united in marriage at 4:80
o'clock this afternoon at the Metlio-
ilisi Chuieli, Kev. Mr. White officiating. They "ere assisted by Mr. VV.
.1. Hogg of Rossland, and the groom's
sister, Miss Minnie Lillio.
While moving the heavy boiler for
the Silver King mine, along Vernon
Street yesterday, tlio horses, of which
there were eight, became frightened
and ran away. The boiler weighs six
tons, and when the wagon ran oil' the
eu,Is of tbe planks which were laid
on the street tbe hind axle gave way
beneath its heavy weight, lleyond
the broken axle no damage   was done.
Trouble has been brewing or some
time between the members of the
Smelter and Citizens' band and yesterday it resulted in a law suit coming before Judge _"orin at the afternoon session of the County Court. The
case was between a member of each
band, Johnson vs. lllassford. The
plantiff, acting for the smelter band,
brought action to obtain his right to
replevy on the instruments. The case
was dismissed.
M. J. Delatisky will in the near
future engage in the grocery business
at the corner of Mill and Josephine
Streets. He bus leased a lot at that
corner and given a contract for building a store there to Contractor Uillet.
As soon ns the building is finished
Mr. Delatisky will begin to put In bis
stock. The Miner made an error yesterday in saying that Mr. E.C. Traves
was erecting the building. He has
simply leased the land to Mr. Delatisky.
A meeting of tbe Nelson "harlty Organization will be held in the school
room of St. rani's Presbyterian Church
at 4:30 o'clock next Friday afternoon.
This will be the first meeting of this
Benson and it is for the purpose of
considering any eases that might be
worthy of aid during the winter. The
main object of the organization is to
suppress tbe professional beggar and
help the deserving- poor. The regular quarterly meeting of the License
Commissioners will beheld at 2:30
this afternoon. No applications for
licenses have.been made.
The McGregors of Crawford Ray
were arraigned in the Provincial Police Court yesterday afternoon before
Magistrate Crease, to answer to the
charge of violating tbe liquor regulations. It was alleged that McGregor
had Bold liquor to the 12-year-old soa
of Mr. and Mrs. Adolph (looderow,
who also resides at Crawford Hay.
The case was a clear ono against McGregor, but no fine was imposed as it
The McGregors were acquitted, as it
was clear that the (looderow's laid
the information to gratify their own
personal spite.
Says The Sandon Mining Review:
It tires one to read The Nelson Tribune's comments 'on old-timers and
"Johnniecomelatelies" as though the
length of time a man has been in a
place should be either a preferment or
a drawback for otlice. When a man
settles in a place with the intention
of becoming n permanent resident,
nnd has a good knowledge of what
he is talking about, from experience
he may have received elsewhere, his
opinion may lie worth that of a dozen
old-timers, who never tried to learn
anything but ns il was forced upon
them.
Mr. Eneas Harding Small and Miss
Ada Wellmaii both of Cranbrook, who
arrived in jNYImiii Monday evening
were united in marriage by Rev. Mr.
Akeburst at Sl. SnviourB (Jhuieh at
8:30 o'clock last   evening.    Miss Walt
Street where it is hoped that all ladies who are relatives of Masons will
meet and discuss the matter. No
special notices will be sent out and it
is requested that this invitation will
be considered a personal ono by all
who are interested in the affair.
Anniversary services will ue held at
St. Paul's Presbyterian Church
next .Sunday morning and evening.
The members of this denominates are
trying to raise a million dollar century fund, and a collection for this
purpose will lie taken up. It is hoped
by the members of the congregation
that the debt now remaining on the
church will bo removed by this donation. It is expected that Kev. Dr.
Wright of Portage La Prairie, who
is appointed to look after this fund in
liritisli Colombia, will be present
and conduot the services. In case Dr.
Wright does not arrive in time Rev.
Mr. Frew will conduct tlie services.
There should be a big crowd at
tlie Opera House tonight for the closing of the sale being held by the ladies of St. Saviour's Church. The results of the prize contests will he
made known, and the many valuable
piizes awarded. Energetic committees have charge of the literary department, and tlie Oyster Supper under the capable management of Mrs.
N. I'uinniius, and will undoubtedly be
well patronized. Many useful and
pretty articles will be auctioned off

Peters Goes to Vancouver
Assume His New Position.
Mr. Frank W. Peters, assistant
general freight ngent for tlie 0. IV K.
for the distict ill whieh Nelson is the
center, will leave Nelson next Sunday to take up the duties of assistant
general freight ngent   for   the Pueilie
dlivsion and general agent of the Canadian-Australian steamship line, with
headquarters at Vancouver,
In losing Mr, Peters Nelson will
lose one of its foremost citizens,a man
who has always been proud of the
town in which he lived aml^ alive to
its every interest. Mr. Peters is one
of that class of men whose presence
in growing towns is a most   desirable
thing. Every public movement always
received bis active support. As a
member of the Hoard of Trade, the
Nelson Club and all athletic organizations he wns one of those who con-
stuntly tried to lift them up, Por these
reasons he has become ono of Nelson's
leading men and when such a *ian
combines with his other qualities the
qualities of good-fellowship his departure is u loss to any community.
Mr. Peters began his railroad career in 1873, when as a very young
man be took a job as telegraph operator in a construction train on the Intercolonial road. He first went to
work for the C. P. R. in Winnipeg
dropping mto that city during the
year 1881 with twenty cents left after
a long trip arret with a desire for work
He applied for a position in tbe C. V.
R.freight oflice and was given a clerkship at a small salary, liis salary increased during the winter und in the
Bpring of 1882 he was appointed
freight, passenger nnd land agent at
Brandon, the mainline having reached a point at that time about thirty
miles west of Hrnndon. Here he remained for seven years, being transferred in 188!i to Port Arthur as agent
there. In the same year just after
the N. P. entered Winnipeg, Mr.
Peters was transferred to that point
and appointed local freight agent. In
18110 the growing importance of the
Kootenays mnde it imperative thnt a
general olliee sliould be established in
South Eastern Hritish Columbia, and
Mr. Peters was sent to Nolson us District Freight Agent. At the time of
the reorganization of the management
of the road,when Mr. Kerr was transferred from Winnipeg to Montreal,
Mr. Peters was tiansferred to the
rank of assistant general freight
agent. In going to Vancouver he retains this rank but is in a larger field
of work and has added responsibilities.
As mentioned above. Mr. Peters
will leave, for Vancouver on Sunday
next. Mrs. Peters and the children
will leave for the east the beginning
of next week and will spend a month
or two there, returning to Vancouver early in tbe spring.
