Daily Edition No.    1089
Nelson,   British  Columbia, Tuesday,  July 16,  1901
Eleventh   Year
Report of School Committee
Received and Approved
Plans Adopted.
Another Offer  to Buy City
Lighting Plant Received
and  Filed,
The most important item of business
before the t'ity Council last evening
was the repoit of the School Committee on the result of tbeir meeting on
Saturday evening with tho school
trustees in regard lo the proposes new
high school building. There was no
written report, but Alderman Hamilton, ns the spokesman of the committee, verbally reported the work they
had performed, as already outlined in
the last issue of The Miner, lie re
porteii that they had conferred with
the trustees and had the advice of
all the architects in explaining their
different plans, which were briefly
though clearly explained. He nlso
stated that after mature deliberation
they had sifted the quantity to a
choice of three, and on being voted
resulted in the selection of Mr. Carrie's as the one finding the most favor. In accordance with thut decision
they had accepteil it and hud author
I zed the architect to proceed-with the
preparation and completion of tbe
plans and specifications. They will
bo prepared in duplicate and when
completed they will at oncjc call for
tenders, subject to the approval of the
City Council and the Government ana
that they wero within tho estimate.
Tho mayor suggested that the easiest
way to have arranged the matter was
for them to have called tor tenders on
all tho plans as considerable delay
ml_f t ho caused in tho evont of the
one accepted going over the amount
of the appropriation. He claimed that
the architect's estimate was nothing
to depend on in regard to the actual
cost of the building. His experience
of calling for tenders on architect's
estimates had been that they invariably either went over the estimate 11)0
per cent or below to the amount of
30 per cent. Considerable time was
spent the discussion of the pros and
cons on the matter when the mayrr
claimed that the committee had not
the authority from the city council to
call for tender and requested the citv
clerk tu turn up the minutes and
read the motion made appointing tbe
committee. Tbe motion was then
read and discussed. Aldennan Selous
claimed that the committee had acted
accoiding to the best of their judgment and as the trustees weie in a
hurry to proceed with the work, in
order to hasten it they had agreed to
call foi the completion of the plans
nnd spceliealious in duplicate and call
for tenders while the plans were in
tiansit to and from Victoria as there
Was little doubt that the Government
would accept them without objection.
The mayor still held out that they
were pioccedlng the wrong wuy about
it and that the plans should not be
sent to Victoria until the tenders were
all in. After somo further discussion it was agreed that the calling of
tenders be proceeded with and that tho
trnsteeo be requested to withhold tbo
Bending of the plans to Victoria until the tenders had been reoeived.
In the tenders sent iu for the erection of the electric poles only one wus
received from Geo. Iloaumont, who
offered to do the work for the sura of
J4.35. The latter was referred to the
superintendent of tho electric depart-
ent who claimed that the price was
rather high aud "ould be done by the
day for less money. The matter was
referred to Superintendent Mcl'hee
and the Mayor.
U The following communication was
received from the Nelson Coke & (las
The following letter was read:
The Mayor and Aldermen   of the City

Fred Burnett, Manager and See.
The communication was raocived
and without dise.su-ion it was moved
by Alderman Selous and seconded by
Alderman Irving that It be received
and filed,
A communication was also received
from Mrs. E. Holbrook, complaining
about the water on Latimer street
flooding her cellar. The matter was
referred to the city engineer.
The matter ol tbe disposal of the
stone in front of the Phair hotel was
disposed of by granting the request of
the Webt Transfer company offering
to erect a retaining wall in front of
their property on Vernon street if the
stone was hauled to the place.
By-laws to provide a sinking fund
for interest and principal on municipal debentures weie read and passed
a third time.
When the finance report was under
discussion the mayor questioned the
right of the coroner to oharge up the
expenses of the inquest without the
authority of the council first being
obtained. The city clerk informed
the mayor that it was perfectly legal,
but the mayor persisted in his objection without having positive evidence to that effect. The amount,
was, however, uu'hori/.ed to be   paid.

Nelson next summer the annual regatta of this association. Vancouver hus
partially promised to forego Its right
to the regatta in favor of Nelson, and
if this can be arranged,as It probably

it is not thought that he will do
anything of a radical nature, until he
is compel led lo.
The American Steel Hoop Co.'s
supposedly non-union mill known as
the painter mill, in West Carson
street, was closed this morning in all
its branches. The tie up at this mill
was said to have been a surprise to
tbe mill owners and officials in
j charge of it. Thc other plant known
as the Lindsey and McCutcheon mill
j in Alleghany was shut down completely in the puddling and bar
in 11 In. All the skilled workmen refused to enlei the mill and tht company did not even operate the live
furnaces. The finishing departments
of the inP1 were working today as
the men are not in the union but it is
claimed bj the workers that the employees in that department will rot
go to work in the morning. The
American Steel Hoop Co.'s mill at
.Monsen was not closed today. It has
been non-union since it was built two
years ago and the company say tho
men will remain loyal.
The amalgamated people would., not
discuss the situation. While all the
other mills of the United Stales
Steel Corporation are included in the
general eonllict, tnese three companies are the lirst attacked. What the
next Hiovo would bo tho workers
would not say. It is announced to��
day that the circular letter which
was expected to be sent out today
calling ��on the men in the mills of
the Federal Steel Company, the National Steel Company and the National Tube Company to come out
would not be issued nt present. The
most interesting report to the amalgamated men today was the dispatch
from New York which said that a
conference of the manfiieturei's was
to be held in New York tomorrow at
which Warner Arms, vieo president
ol tlie American Tin Plate Co., was
to present a detailed account of tlie
experiences of the committee that
met tho Amalgamated Association
in this eily last week. It was staled
that the question of again extending
the olive branch to the strikers or
of taking up the   light   antl   crushing
the association  would be determined,
Generally speaking the workers, from
President Shaffer down, seem to be
looking for some son of settlement.
The general offices of the American
Steel Hoop Co., is in this city but It
wus staled there today that President
W. E. Corey, who Is also the executive head of the National Stoci Company, bud nothing to say concerning
the plana of Ihe coinpany in meeting
the difficulties of Ike strike nor as to
what condition the mills were in
whore non-union men had joined tlie
forces of the strikers. The policy of
the manufacturers it was said, is to
remain quiet for some time nnd await
developments, The officials of the

The above telegram was received by
The Miner at"7 o'clock Sunday evening. Up till the time of going to
press this morning no confirmation
lias heen received. Tbo striker's com
mittee last night stated that they
did not believe there was any truth
in it, as they bad received messages
that ovening siiying tbat everything
was going on as usual, with prospects brightening, there wns nothing
in any w��y as to the strike being called off. Organizer McMananion wns
In Revelstoke yesterday, but is to be
back today, when an investigation
will be made as to how the report originated. Tho committee say the
men are perfectly convinced that the
report Is a fake, and aie paving no
attention to it.
The following, while coining from
the C. P, K. and from the company's
standpoint, bears out tho men that no
such action had been taken by Wilson as is attributed to hiin in tho first
despatch :
Rathwell, Man., Juiy 15���The loeal
committee of the striking trackmen
on the southwestern .ranch of the C.
P. R. arc getting very restless at the
large number of men that are returning and being replaced on the different divisions in Southern Manitoba.
At a meeting here today, at which
about twenty were present, il was resolved that a pressing request be sent
to Montreal instructing the committee there that it is necessary that the
strike be ended in a day or two. Tlie
feeling hero now is that the company's advances should be accepted so
as to save the older employees their

The West Kootenay Light & Power
Co. has suspended work on the half a
million dollar addition to their Bonnington Fulls plant. Their market
for power is in Rossland and if tlie
conditions here are unsettled they re

the contemplated appropriation, Over

A big miners picnic takes place tomorrow, with a procession, addresses
and sports. After the picnic many
men will loave tho city to seek worn
in other camps. A big exodus is expected 19foro the end of the week.
There is nothing In sight to Indicate
a settlement. The Hoard of Trade
has not heard in reply to their letter

received from all sources connected
with the great strike of tlie steel

The Fall fairs are coming into notice again. Some of them have opened their advertising campaign. A favorite practice is to send to the newspapers a coinpliinentiry ticket of ad-
misBion, and for this generous concession, having a cash value of twenty-
five or fifty cento, the newspapers are
expected to give advertising to the
value of twenty-five or fifty dollars.
Thc lloaid of Trade in Victoria renews its claim to be called the British
Columbia Hoard of Trade, by including information concerning all centres of industry in the Province in its
annual report. The fact of the information is altogether a pleasing one, but
it does not make a local Hoard of
Trade a Provincial one. lt will be
better, because less susceptible of mis
understanding, if the Victoria institution shall conrine itself to its own
name. That will not prevent it from
taking note of what is going on outside, the same as now. Here Is the
paragraph in the report relating to
Nelson: "In the Nelson diviMo.
there has been a marked improvement
in development works, although not
much change in output. Additional
stamp mills have been recently install

looked for. The future of Nelson is

le:ist two, one at   Da'vson   antl ont in
a Coast city.    After Mr.   Sifton makes
his contemplated visit  to  the  Yukon
capital,  be will probably   be moved to
report favorably on   this  suggestion.
Gold   dust   is   still   the     circulating
medium    in that city,   to great inconvenience ami loss   in   business.    A local assay ollice,  where Kold can be exchanged for negotiable  certificates) is
a nacessity to  trade,   and   besides   it
will   afford   the  only    assurance   of
keeping tlie dust from  finding ils way
to   Seattle   antl   S.tii   Krancisso,    We
are   having     rather   Oonuluslve   evidence of the truth of Mr, Thompson's
prediction   in   this regard   iu the frequent reports from those cities of arrivals of gold from the Yukon, notwithstanding the   widely   advertised   fact
that Vancouver Is prepared to  handle
it.     Dawson   would appear to   be   the
proper site, if there    is only to he one
Office*  but no reason,has   so   far   been
given why there should not be two, or
The muckers should have  three dollars a day,   as   the   Union scale provides,   and   those mine   managers   in
Rossland who continued the   old   rate
of pay should be banged,   drawn, and
quartered.   That is the position taken
by  the   hon.    member     for    Nelson,
through  his newspacr,   The Tribune.
He   blames   those   managers  for   the
strike, says   they   are   a curse to   the
country,and ought to be driven out of
it.    There   is   no limit to the   abuse,
and all   because   the  pay of   muckers
was not advanced to   the   figure   mentioned at the very   first   ashing.    The
0, P. K. trackmen were   getting SI.40
a tiny nnd struck for   S'.tiO. yet we do
noi see a word in censure of tlie C. P.
R. for refusing the advance.   A trackman is as gootl as a mucker,aud works
as   hard   untl   as   skilfully,   but   Mr.
Houston   is   satisfied   that   he should
toil on for his SI. in a day,   while   his
extremely tich vocabulary   of   abusive
epithets   is   exhausted in   denouncing
the men who refuse the poor   muckers
their   88,00   a day.      This is a sort of
consistency   that   successfully   evades
public   conipieliension.    It   is    not  a
question of fair  wage   with this   dis-1
tiuguished member of the Legislature,
however,    but   rather a policy actuated by   malice   on   the   one   side  and
fawning on the other.    The   working-
man is dear to Mr. Houston   precisely
in   proportion   to   his ability   to   use

lying on the platform, nothing having
been done with it.
At the Referendum, which is erecting its five-Stamp mill speedily, it is
likely more men will be put on very
shortly. During the last week a large
quantity of machinery was taken up
to this property from the siding.
There are a laige number of prospectors in the hills in thei neighborhood of these mines, most of them doing assessment work on claims already staked. The season so far has

Waiting For Word From Montreal as
to Future Construction.
No new developments havej occtiired
at llonnington Falls regarding the
Bhut down of all construction work
which occured Saturday evening.
The telegram came from Montreal
wheie most of the principal stock
holders of the company are stopping,
to attend the general meeting of the
company which will probably be
held this week. Mr. L. A.Campbell,
manager of company, left early
last week for Montreal, and tho closed down was ordered after his arrival.
No word has been received as to
the reason of the company for this action, which came as a total surprise
to eveiy one at work there, from the
engineer in oharge of the men, but
lt is thought that the closing down
nf the company's three largest customers at Rossland the Le Roi, War
I'.uglc and Centre Star explains It. At
the general meeting it will be arranged as tc the future course of action
and as soon as the meeting has been
held somo decisive word will be received.
