Mr. Ohoate Thinks the Fund Ranks
Foremost in London's Charities.
London, Apr, 20. ���At the anuiver
sary dinner of the Literary Fund this
evening Sir George Otto Tre.velyau, a
nephew uf Lord Macaulay the celebrated historian, presided. In tin*
course of a happy reference to the presence of Mr. Joseph Ohoate, the United
Suites Ambassador, he said thai
America had always sen! distinguished
representatives to Great Britain,   had
lie reminded Ihe company that Ben
jiimin Franklin was president at tin
lirst dinner of the society. Mr. Ohoate
responded for "Literature," emphasizing the "harmonizing power nf good
literature between ull peoples speaking
;he same language." Tho Anglo
Amerioan literary tie, he oon tinned,
had never been broken and never could
he. America had sent England an
author who had entered every home in
(he Kingdom, He referred not lo
Mark Twain, or to "Mr. Uooley" bul
ro Oaptaiu Malum who had "taught
England more than she knew of her
power.''
In view of the debt due to the Literary Fund in the past the Fund must
rank, in Mr. (.'boat's opinion, foremost among London's wonderful charities.

Major Forsinetti, who was  director
of the  Cherohe-Midi   prison   in   1811*1,
at the time   of   the  condemnation   of
Dreyfus testified that Dreyfus consist-
ently and persistently protested his innocence, and after he was  condemned
repeatedly asked for a revolver, declaring that his ouly   crime   was   in   his
having beeu burn a Jew.    The wituess
said that after the petition   for   a   revision   of the   trial   by court   martial
was rejected, Oolonel du Paty do Clam
visited Dreyfus and tried bis utmost to
draw from him   a   confessiuu that   he
had heen drawn   into   a   guilty   enm-
munieatiiu of documents to a  foreign
piwer.    Dreyfus    energetically     protested that ho was not guilty, aud Colonel  du Paty de  Clam said iu parting
from him, "If you ure really inuoceut,
you   are   the gieutest   martyr   of   tbe

There is a craze .iust now foi the
priuciple of municipal ownership of
municipal franchises. People accept
it without question. It is as popular
in Nelsou as in other places. Some
few years ago the example of Glasgow was very much in evidence in
support of it. There the municipality
owned tbe tramways, and although
cnargiug only a penny fare it was paying handsomely. It owned a number
of other things, aud so successful were
tbey in operation, so the story went,
that almost money enough was derived
from them to pay the entire expenses
of the city. This was the report as
circulated all through Cauada, and
of course proved most convincing. We
did not stop to inquire whether the results were as favorable as claimed,
which they were not, or to reflect tbat
circuinstauces iu Glasgow may be
very different from circumstances iu
Canadian cities, which tbey are. We
Bimply jumped to tbe conclusion tbat
because municipal ownership of some
franchises was successful there it
should be here, aud refused to discuss
the point any further.
lint all places are not Glasgow, or
Birmingham, which was also held up
as an example, although uot quite so
bright aud shining as the other The
principle may be good euough, hut we
should be a little more careful than
we are not to let it run away with us.
There are many things to consider in
connection with it before we decide
that* it is the best adapt.e(J for the particular circumstances of any locality.
Is it quite sure, for instance, tbat the
owning aud working of au electric
light plant by tbe corporation is the
wisest thiug for Nelson? We do uot
sav it is uot, but who kuows so mucb
about it tbat he dares say it is? Tbe
Toiouto Mouetaty Times, a trade journal of exceptional ability, bas recently
beeu rai��iug some doubts on the question. "It is well to heir in mind," it
says, "that the laws which govern electricity aud tbo method of its control
are uot yet fully understood. Even
the cleverest inventions aud tbe most
expert workmen bave not learned all
about this wondrous foice; aud tbe
manufacturers of machines for supply
iug electric energy ure constantly
changing or modifying their machinery so as best to utilise the fluid. This
being the Oaaesit is uot difficult to
perceive that where the makers of machines aud the public companies which
use them have to exercise the closest
supervision day by day to obtain the
best results, and where tbey bave often to alter and improve, sometimes to
entirely rebuild pints of tbeir plant in
order to make it economical or even
safe-when tbis is the ease we say,
with proprietary companies, it is sure
to be so with municipalities And
tbeie is much reason to believe that
a municipality is generally nt a disadvantage in such matters."
We do not stop to think of this. We
have hastened to accept the principle
of municipal ownership, and that is
enough| the development of theprinci
pie must look after itself. We there
fore deeide on the adoption of au electric system, without eveu assuring
ourselves that it shall be subject to tbe
management aud control of an expert
electrician. Tbe Monetary Times
goes ou lo refer to a pamphlet recently
issued in tbe United States, dealing
especially with the ordinances in
sixty cities that were fouud necessary
owing to difficulties iu operating electric plants that are under municipal ; ,.������>-���1TIO, nr rm ,m ,���. xl;lM(V

HE MAY SUCCEED.
NELSON   MAY GET    HER  PUBLIO
BUILDINGS.
Reassuring   News   Received    Yesterday
From iW* A- Galliln-r who is
iii Ottawa-
Wnril lias linen inccivi'd in the Oity
from \V. A. Gnllilier that everything
indicates the suocobb <if bis nrnflsioh in
Ottawa. Ho states th;>t nearly all
tin Ministers ar,a pledged to vote $25,-
000 fur tin* ei-ii'i 1 n nf   *  Government
building   here   ; lint   Im   lms   no
doubt abont tlio mensnre going
through. This \i ill he welcome news
to the 1 itizena of Nelson who have
longed for a decent Government
building for some time, Air. Galliher
is still standing l*y li*-- j-iins and will
not quit until il"* incney is voted.
As Kossliiiiil is asking fm- $100,000,
Nelson's modest dem ind slmniii bo
grnuted   without uuy l ronhle,
OOULD   NUT   STAND THE PAOE.
The  Civic   Pay   Boll   Was  Banning
Away With Too Much Money.
This week 7!1 mini, who had been
working for the Oity, wore laid oil'
mni now a sinlT of abont twenty are
looking after the necessary works.
The opening of ��ilioa strict had proceeded rapidly and -would have been
near completion now had the work
continued. The teasou the meu were
laid off was the ; .1 sufficient one ot a
lack of money with which to pay
them. The weekly nay roll was a little steeper than tho City cotild afford,
so it paid ii|i and is now going slower.
Tho little work that was done during tho past couple ot weeks has
served to demonstrate tho needs of (lie
Oity regarding improvements to roads
and tlie building of sidewalks. This
can only be dono with money aud as
tho citizens realize this, there will le
practically no opposition lo the passage of the bylaws to raise money,
which lhe counoil will shortly submit
to the people. The matter will oouio
up at tho meetiug ou Monday evening
and it is not likely that any time will
he lost in pushing them through.
There will he three separate by laws,
ono to raise money for improving tlie
water system, one for eleotrio light
purposo-i and one of $16,000 or $20,000
which will bo expended in tho strenls.
As soon as the bylaws nre passed and
the money received a largo force of
nioii will ho immediately put lo work
and tho money will go into eire-jln-
tiou.
THE CLUB   HALL   LAST  NIGHT.
A Vory Enjoyable Sooial Event Given
by iho Members.
It is seldom in British Oolumhin
that such really enjoyable affairs as
the dance of the Nelson Olnblast night
are given. Of course it was explicit d
that the eluh would outdo itself hut no
one was quite prepared for the elaborate scale upon which everything was
oonduoted. A pleasing feature was the
enclosing of the wide veranda for a
"sitting mil" room anil tete-u tele
corners. The billiard room was
pressed into service for the hall room
and the waxen floor with the excellent
music of Herr Hleiuer's iirelioslrn iu-
ilu -ed nearly everyone present to dance,
The floral decorations wero von
pretty, in fact tho whole building wai*
a regular blaze of beauty anil novi i
looked better. Supper was served in :
largo inai-queo which opened into lit.
reading room. There was ainph
splice and most tempi ing dishes weri
provided There wore twenty iluue.oi
anil t lime extras on the programme,
but these wore supplemented by several extra "extras" nud lengthened ul
times by*demands for eniores.
The social "everybody" was there
and many strikingly handsome costumes wore worn liy the ladies. Tn*
timid di'lnitnnlo was in evidence
Thore were several visitors from Kas
lo, Rossland and tin* Ooast cities
The (Hub is to oe congratulated on I In
excellence of tho arrangements and
the capable manner In which they wen
carried out. Espeoial credit is duo tin
indefatigable secretary   Mr. St. Hurl".

1;.cross,* meti was belli, and thev decided to accept the in*.i offi .* before
ihem. thai of Sandon. It wns deemed wise not to wait longer before do-
eiiling us both Now Denver and Sil-
vorton had been coniuiuuioated with,
and the Nels n athlets, wlvi are
true sportsmen, did nor wish to give
tho idea thoy were holding themselves

That very evening delngates from
both places oaine in to town, nud tho
position was explained io them
Nelson hadj promis tl to go to New
Denver on the 24th aud could not go
back -*ii its promise, but there was
every willingness tn go to Silverton
also, if that, town oould arrange to
hnlil its games on the 36th. No or-
rnURemeut, how* , r, was come to,
and the delegates returned tn their respective   homes.*
Hester lay afternoon Messrs, .1. Neol-
amis md W. ,1. Thoinpon, of tho ball
team and the Uro department respeo*
tively, "received telegrams from Mr.
!*!. U. Malheson, secretary of the Sii
verton Queen's Birthday Oelebratiou
Committee, offering a purse of $260
for the ball game, anil 13200 for t' e
huh mni hub raoe, if Nelson would ;,o

iii tely the promise to Nov. Denver hud
been given, anil must he kept, consequently, unless Silverton can arrange
tor the games to lie played ou the 25tb,
Nelson will have regretfully to deoline
her invitation to participate iu tho ensuing oelebration.

Sandon, April 18. ���(Speoial)���Things
ara rather quiet here just at presenl
through everything points to a good
season, as the mines are working full
force aud there i*. a certainty of in
creased activity later on. The Nohlt

Ruth and the Ivaohoe intend building
concentrators this summer
The niRiiagers of mines, employin*.
in all 700 meu, held a meeting lasi
week, aud decided unanimously to
close down shiuld the eight hour law
be enforced. Several of the mines are
ready to close down at a moment's notice. Outside of this, there is no obstacle in the way of Sandon's steady
progress this summer.
The Last Chance is shipping steadily
at the rate of 20 tons a day. The
Payne mine is going as strong as evei.
Rawhiding has beeu generally discontinued owing to the danger from slides.
The Reco is only shipping euough to
pay expenses on account of the badness of the trails.
The City Couucil is calling for $15,
000 worth of debentures for vnriors
necessary improvements. Winter seems
loth to go here, and the streets are in
a horrible condition.- There is still
two feet of snow and more is falling
nearly every day. A large bachelors'
ball was held here tonight, which was a
great success and largely attended.
200 invitations being out. The Metropolitan Opera Company are due nt

Mr. R. O. Jennings, tho well known
Fort Steele mining man, in an interview the othor day had the following
to say about East Kootenay and its
proepeota t
"We expect to havo a great doal of
railroad building iu East Kootenay
this year. It is tho general belief in
Fort Steele that the (ireat Northern
people are interested in a road whioh
, will leave the Uroat Northern system
at Kalispell. Mont., and run north
through Fort Steele, and on through
many rich mining camps to Golden,
on the Canadian Pacific railway. A
party of surveyors left Kalispell to survey the lines when I was them a few
days ago. It would prove a most profitable piece of road, and would cut
thiough the very heart of mining centres of surpassing richness. Such a road
would do wonders in developing the
country.
"It is a certainty that the Canadian
Pacific Railway will build the branch
to tho North Star and Sullivan camps
this summer. I do not think it will
start from Cranbrook, as has been
claimed. It is more likely to run from
Fort Steele junction.
"Tracy and Lewis creeks aro scone.-
of much activity just now. There is
a high grade camp which I con.sidei
one of the most promising in all ol
East Kootenay. Recently Spokane cap
ital has obtained control of the John
L. group of claims on Lewis creek in
Tracy camp, and work has been started ou a tunnel running iu on the veiu.
It had only just started when I lull
tho camp, but had already shown
up a flue ledge with a pay streak of
galena iu it about, a foot wide, carrying values in silver and gold up lo $20
pur ton.    The group offers a   favorahli
opportunity fur cheap development by
tunnels, anil 1 expect lo hear good re
ports from it. There is no doubt thai
it will turn inln a Jroppni-gold pro*
erty at greater depth, as all thn olaim**
in that camp nro doing, galena beiiu
tho capping for rich copper ore holow.'
* ��   *
Says the   Kamloops   Sentinel:    "II
R. Bellamy, M. E, who came up from
Nolson last week to look  over the Coiil
Hill properties, left for Jamieson
Crook yesterday morning in company
with A. E. Larseu and several Others,

tho placer claims on .lamioson crook.''
