Nelson,   British  Columbia. Tuesday,  September io,  1901
Eleventh  Year
DECIDED TO
FIX THE WHARF
City Council Will Do Something Towards Saftey ol
Passengers.
Long  Drawn   Out   Meeting
But Not A Great Deal
Done.
The meeting of the City Council last
ovening was long but not very fruitful of results. At tho opining of tha
session tho w���ter pipe in tbe toilet
room nil joining tbo council chamber
burnt and flooded tbe floors, and the
services of the City Engineer and
several of thc Aldermen were required
before the water was tinally turned oft'
in the basement. Tbe incident seemed
to have rather a di-itmbing effect on
the temper of His Worship who did
not recover bis usual equanimity during the session.
I'esiiles tbe Mayor the following
Aldermen were present : Irving, Paterson, (lilette, Selous, tbe citv Clerk
aud the city engineer. After the
minutes of the previous meeting had
been read nnd approved the city clerk
proceeded to read the report of the
finance committee for August, which
recommended the payment of numerous accounts.
After a little discussion of the clam e
relating to the payroll account of the
lire department, which the mayor was
not satisfied with, considering it as
too high compared with the amount
paid lust year, tbe report wns adopted
and that of the Hoard of Works taken
op, whioh read as follows:
First.���Your coo'iuiUee recommend
that the city wharf be repaired and
widened to is feet at an estimated
cost of $1,200.
Second.���Your committee also recommend that tho lane in Block 38,
between Mill and Latimer streets, be
made passable for teams.
This report was mad clause by
clause. After tbe reading of the first
clause Alderman Selous responded,
"J>'o funds."
Alderman Patterson was of tbe
opinion than an accident, which in
the present state of the city wharf nan
likely to occur at nny time, would be
considerably more costlv to tbe city
than repairing the wharf.
Alderman Selous���It is all right to
rcplatiK the wharf but I fail to see
any necessity for widening it.
The Mayor said that a square piece
of timber nt tbe side of wharf ns a
guard was much needed. He himself
had nearly walked off the wharf one
night com'ng off the Moyie, and was
surprised that more accidents had not
occurred there.
Alderman Selous suddenly warmed
up to the subject and said emphatically that bo held veiy strong viows
about tbe city wharf. It was mainly
used for tiie convenience of two steamship companies and some brick, lumber nnd stone ooople and as tbey wero
wearing it out be thought it was only
right thut they should help to pay
fur it,
Muyor FletOher said that before any
such action could be taken a bylaw
would be necessary, Tbo question
now was as to whether tho Council
were read; to tako care of the wharf
or elso keep tlio responsibility of having it In its present condition. He
did not think any great expenditure
would be necessary to put it in proper
shape and be also considered that tho
citizens of Nelson used the whurf a
great oeal. There was enough difficulties in tho way of tbe wholesale
merchants of Nelson now without the
city adding to tbem, as lt would bo
uut of their pockets any money raised
in the way suggested by Alderman
Selous would come.
After considerable further discussion tho clause was passed as also tlie
following oue.
The Fire, Water a#l Light com-
mittco then reported ns folows:
l''lrst���They rocommend tbat the
effer of Mr. M. Crow to pay $10 per
month for outaule elojtric light at his
store on Baker atreet, tim lights tt.
burn for two hours each evening, be
accepted.
Second���Thnt the present hnlf Inch
water connection to the llartlett hotel
bo replaced by a throe-quarter inch
connection.
Third���Tbat new springs bo purchased for tho hoso and book und ladder truck.
Fourth���That tho residence of the
superintendent  of  the  eleotrio light
department be connected by telephone
with the eleotrio light power bouse.
Fifth���Your committee beg to refer
to council the question of the amount
of Salary to be paid Thomas Hnnkin,
lnechnnical engineer, employed temporarily at the electric light powor
house.
sixth���Your committee beg also la
refer to council for consideration thu
question as to  the   udvisubility of re
pairing   the   Anderson   creek   Hume,
and submit suggestions   of   Alderman
Paterson on the  r-.u iject   for council's
I consideration.
Seventh���With reference to applica-
t'on of ltev. I,. W. Ferland, for a reduction in the rate charged lor electric light for the Catholic church,
your committee do not recommend
tbat any reduction be made.
Your committee also recommend
that an inspection of the water
licenses in the city be made and tne
charge of $ 1. n0 for garden hose be
collected.
In this report tbe salary of T. Rankin, who is temporarily taking the
placo of H. Sproat. was set at the
same rate as the lattei's.
Regarding the flume frum Anderson
creek, it was considered that the rebuilding of it would be too great an
exDense at the present time as plenty
of water could be obtained from the
steel pipe from Cottonwood creek.connecting with Whitewater and other
oreeks. so tbis clause was dropped
from   tbe report.
A letter was rend from the city
health officer relating to tho necessity
of putting in city water to some
houses In Addition A where typhoid
fever had been caused oy drinking surface water. A stand pipe was ordered
to be put in.
City Engineer McCullocb was granted
a month's leave of absence.
Aldermau Selous w:ib appointed to
act as eity treasurer pro tern, in the
absence of Mr. Wasson.
A letter was read from Dr. Arthur
asking that the city pay sufficient
of their giant towards thc high school
building to meet certain expenses now
due amounting to about $1,4(10. it
was decided to leave tlie matter in
the bands of the Mayor with power
to act. After the regular business ot
tbe meeting was completed tbe subject of getting a new tire horse was
disoussed and It was decided that a
horse must bo otaineri as soon as possible tbe present animal being anything
but suitable for the work.

Out of All Danger.
ONTARIO PHYSICIAN DEAD
Ood-rlcb, Ont.,Sept   0.-O. 0, Shannon   ono   of Uoderieh's  oldest physb
oians, is dead.
Milburn Bouse. Buffalo, Sept. 0.���
"God's contribution to the Americn
peple will be the sparing of the President's life" As the evening shadows
were falling tonight John O Milburn,
president of tbe Pan-American exposition reverently uttered these words as
he stood before tbe house in which
the nation's patient was fighting so
bravley with death. And all who
bave been at the Milburn residence
today reflect tbe view that the battle
will be won and the prayers of tbe
world will be answered. Since last
night not an unfavorable symptom
has appeared. Every hour has oeen a
victory. Faith in the outcome grows
stronger ana stronger and hope
mounts higher and higher until in
the mindi of some the danger of all
future complications is bruahed aside,
and hope has become conviction. Indeed many of the President's friends
seem possessed with a sort of supernatural confidence, in tbe President's
recovery, which nothing but an abso
lute change for the worse can shake,
and the basis for the confidence that is
expressed is solid.
There has been nothing but im-
provment, gradual and slow, but
steady improvement. Every bulletin,
every private and public word of tbe
physicians in attendance breathes
forth encouragement. Still, that the
President is by no means out of danger is a verdict of all. Not one of
them will risk his professional reputation with a statement that the President will live. All thoy will say is
that with every day the danger of
complications from peritonitis and
tlood poisoning decreases. Dr. Mc-
Burney, the most eminent of physicians in attendance, expresses the
opinion that if the improvement continues it will be a week before the
President can be pronounced out of
danger and convalescent. And some
of his colleagues like Dr. Mann,
place tho limit of danger still further
away, the fear of peritonitis, it can
bo said positively has nearly completely disappeared. At 4 o'clock this
afternoon danger from tbat source was
almost one.
The President himself haB been
cheerful nil day and has oxprcssod
confidence in his recovery. Todny he
asked for a morning paper but this of
course bad to be denied him. It is
with somo difficulty thnt he can be
restrained from talking. Dr. Herrck
of Cleveland, is quoted as authority
for the statement that he has spoken
at intevnls of several things be
promises to do in the future, This
morning he asked to be allowed to
move bis position and when the permission wns granted before the attendants coald move him, he changed to
the position he desired to assume
without difficulty or pain. This
speaks much for his general strength
and spirits. Mr��. McKinley saw him
again today for a brief visit and Secretary Cortelyou was udmitteel for the
first time. No one else wus allowed
to see him though he inquired several
times who were below stuns. He
was given nourishment today In the
lorm ol eggs beaten in milk administered through the,rectum. The water
which has boen given heretofore did
not appear to agree with him and
eince last night very hot water has
been taken into the stomach through
the month with splendid results. His
bowels moved freely during the dny
and this also was considered an excellent symptom. If be continues to improve it will to gradually. If be
should grow worse the change in that
direction will also probably ho slow.
This is tlni opinion of Dr. Mann.
There will bu   no dims.     If he ar
rives at convalescence Dr. Parke expressed the opinion that it would be
three weeks before it would be safe to
move him. It is said that the niteror
wounds will heal first. The sutures
of the lacerated tissues wero made so
soon after the bullet passed that tbey
am probably healing rapidly. With
the exterior wound it is a slower
process.
The extreme optimism of the Vice-
President and the members cf the cab-
net will be difficult to overstate. "I
am absolutely confident everything
will turn out all right " declared the
Vice-President, and be said he based
his confideuce on informatioin behind
the public expressions of physicians.
Secietary of State Hay is due to
arrive tonight and will remain with
the other members of tbe cabinet at
least for a day or two. Senator
Ilanna will also remain until tbe
physicians give absolute assurance
that Mr. McKinley will live. Comptroller Dawes and some other prominent gentlemen connected with tbe
administration expect to depart tomorrow or Wednesday if tho improvement continues. Vice-President
Roosevelt has occupied a peculiarly
delicate aud trying position since the
event which threatens the President's
life, but be has borne himself
thronghont the ordeal in such a manner ns to win the admiration and
respect of all. Not for a momerxt has
he permitted the idea to be entertained
that there was need for considering'
the constitutional disability of the
President, and the exercise of executive functions whicli this would impose on him. On tho oontrary Mr.
Roosevelt has been one of the most
hopeful and confident that the President would recover. Twice during
the day and again tbis afternoon
the Vice-President has called at tbe
Milburn residence to enquire ns to the
President's condition. During the
afternoon call he met several Cabinet
officers and Senator llonna and spent
a short time with them in informal
discussion. In tbe streets be bus been
the centre of respeotful attention, but
he has met this with dignity and
composure.
Emperor Nicholas gave happy expression to the world wide solicitude
over tho President in a message
which waB given ont during the day
It is addressed to the President and
after expressing his happiness at the
President's improvement ho adds thut
he 301ns with the universal^ world in
wishing a speedy recovery.

EXPERT OPINION.
Milburn House, Buffalo, N. Y'.,
Sopt. ��.���Dr. Maclluruey, the famous
New York surgeon, said to an Associated Press correspondent on the issue
of the 3 o'clock bulletin that all the
indications were favorable. ''No* bad
symptoms have appeared." said he.
"No one can say now that tho Prnsi-
dent is ont of dungei, and for a -week
Hill the possibility cf complic.a.lions
may exist. At the end of that time
if all goes well we may be able to say
thut he iH convalescent." ''Brut I
huve known cases,'' put in Dr. Mjmu,
who was with tbe noted surgOon��� "to
go well for ten days und then change
for tbe worse." "That is true," said
Dr. Maollnrney, somewhat depreciatingly, "but it is entirely ur.usual��� If
tbo President continues to improve
fo: a week," jiu continued, "we may
safely say that be is convalescent;. It
will probably be three weeks bdforo
it will be safe to move him. Wo
must wait until the outer wound i��
bellied anil strong. The inner woujlds
through tbe stomach nroper wi
strong before   the exterior   wound
Ho.v long it will be before he will be
abLc to sit np will depend upon the
rapidity of bin improvement, and 1
may say to you further that his improvement if it continues, promises to
be rapid."
Dr. MacBurney was asked to compare the Garfield wound and its treatment with that of President McKinley. He smiled as he replied tbat to
do bo wouldjae to give tbe whole history of the progress of surg-_*ry during
the past 2D years. "Besides." said
he "the cases are utterly difl'eren t
Garfield's wound was un extremely
unfortunate one in every way. It was
very difficult to handle, while the
wound of President McKinley is in
many respects a lucky oue. No com
parison is possible." Turning to the
Associated Press correspondent Dr.
MacBurnev said : "You can assure
your clientele that all goes well
The President's condition continues
satisfactory."

DOCTORS CONFIDENT.
Milburn House, Buffalo, Sept. 9.���
Dr. Herman Mynter, one of the consulting physicians of President McKinley, said tonight: "I have always
made it a point not to prognosticate
in serious cases for you know man
proposes and (Jod disposes. I consider
tbe President's case a serious one and
so I do not predict,but I may say that
at this stage of the occurrence, the
condition of the patient is quite remarkably favorable, and personally I
cannot anticipate anything but recovery."
Dr. Eugene Wasdin, who was with
Dr. Mynter, said: " I, too, am ad-
verso to making predictions, but 1
agree tbat tbe President's oondrtion is
one that strongly favors complete and
rapid recovery"
Dr. M. D. Mann, who bas Dr. Mc-
Hnrney as a guest, was sfen after the
last consultation tonight. He said: "I
am gratified at the excellent showing
made by tbe President nnd the remarkable mauner in which the case is progressing. 1 feel that although tbe
danger point is by no means past yet.
every day that goes by without any
unfavorable signs is a distinct and
decided gain towards recovery. I
prefer to wait a time before making
any positive declaration on the subject, although I expect the President
to get well unless unfavorable symptoms  develop."
DR. RIXEY CONFIDENT.
Milburn House, Buffalo, Sept. !).���
Dr. P. M. Rixey,one of the physicians
attending the President and ulso tbe
private physician of tbe President and
Mrs. MoKinley, said tonight regarding the distinguished patient: "I am
not, a specialist in abdominal surgery,
but, from a general knowledge of gunshot wounds, I can say thnt the only
possibility of complications is by
blood poisoning or peritonitis, and
thut I consider both now a very remote
probability. Peritonitis might set in
as a result of two aperatures irr the
stomach but, up to Ibis lime, a time
beyond tbe usual standard record, not
tbe slightest, symptom is manifest.
Thero is nol tho slightest evidence of
blood poisoning. As to the bullet not
yet extracted, 1 don't bulievc we need
worry about that. The presumption
is that il is lodged somewhere in the
muscles of the back. Pursuing
natural courses it would now be encrusted and cut off from possible
harm.''
Emma Goldman. Who Inspired
Gzolgosz. wm  Shortly
Be Arrested.
I Buffalo, Sept. !>.���CzolgoKz, the assailant of President McKinley, went
through a long examination today at
the hands of the police officials but
emerged from it without having given
anything material to tbeir knowledge
of the case. The chief effort of the
detectives was to draw from the prisoner some admission as to bis accomplices, but he persistently stuck to his
denial. Every possible device was resorted to in the effort to obtain this
infoimation but the prisoner maintained bis position and conld not bo
shaken. In answer to questions he
a*,*uin went over the occurrence of
Friday and told tbu same story as in
the original confession made to
Superintendent Bull and District Attorney Penny. Czolgosz carefully
weighed his answers and when conclusions that be did not approve weio
taken from his statements insisted
upon making explanations of bis
exact meaning.    Tbo police bave con-
luded that more effectve work on the
part of tbeir theory can be done on
tho outside allhough Czolgosz will
probably bave another experience
with the third degree of police craft
tomorrow. The genera) investigation
of the case progresses slowly because
the men on it must cover a lurge
amount ot preliminary wcrk before
they do effective work.
According to the local authorities
the police of the country know very
little anont tho anarchists
Czolgosz is strong and eats with a
will. Knowledge of the condition of
the President is kept from him. He
knew on Friday night that the President was still alive, but bas beeu
given no information since then.

SENSATIONAL STORIES DENIED.
Buflalo, Sept. 0.���Many sensational
icports are being circulated about
Cabinet action looking to the wholesale apprehension and prosecution of
Emma Goldman antl other lenders of
anarchist organizations. Thc great
majority of these reports, in the
words of a cabinet officer, are "Made

Czolgosz is by law a local offense

SHOULD    KNCOUl-AUE   FARMING.
British Columbia should raise more
foodstuffs than it does in order to
prevent the drain which their purchase in foreign markets entails
upon it. According to tbe trade and
naivgation returns for last year the
foreign goods entered for consumption
in the province pmountetl to 810,800,-
000 and, of these $6,400,000 worth
came from the United States. In the
latter amount are included the following items: Breadstuff's, (169,000;
eggs, 850,000; bacon and hams, 822T,-
uilO; poultry, 510,000; canned meats,
840,000; potatoes, 823,000; tomatoes
and othor vegetables, 800,000; sheep,
8116,000 and so on all along tho lino of
meats, vegetables, and breadstuff,.
Altogether tho food products imported
from thu United States amounted in
value to nearly $1,000,000. With an
import duty of 15 cents per bushel on
potatoes, 25 per cent, ad valorem on
other vegetables, three cents a dozen
on eggs, 20 per cent, on oattlo and
shoep, la cents a barrel on Hour, 82
por ton on hay and a fair duty on t!~*
oiher articles raised by the farmer,
together with the railway haul,
which is sometimes a long one, id bis
favor, the British Columbia faimer
has considerable advantage, which
should be sufficient to make the call
ing a profitable one and to lead to the
utilization of all available areas of
arable land. There would be more
' farming in the province wore it not
that considerable of the best agricultural lands are held in largo tracts by
wealthy individuals who do not as a
rule cultivate them. Tbe seeker after
farming lands finds the big holders
disinclined to part with small parcels
und ufter spending al! the time that
he can affcrd in search of a suitable
tract becomes discouraged and goes
elsewhere and manes his purchase.
The Miner heard of a case of a British
subject who came from California for
the purpose of purchasing a farm of
about 250 acres ir, this province and
who travelled from Fernie to tbe
Similkameen, but could not get just
such a place a- he desired and finally
concluded to go to Alberta to see if
bo could not find there what he wanted. He stated that he found plenty
of land of a character suited to bis
purpose, but the holders of large
tracts did not care to part with a
farm of 250 acres and tho owners of
the smaller farms either did not enre
to sell or asked pricos that he considered too high.
'The boldois of large areas of land
slibuld manifest u diffore.it spirit
There is enough arable land
tij raise all tne breadstuff's, vegetables
ffnit consumed here nnd ranges
eribugh to raise cattle on,and it would
prove to the interest of the large-
landowners to sell portions of their
holdings, as the cultivation of tbe
portion which they sold would naturally enhance tbo value of tho part
vJlVrch thoy bold. There is a rcaoy
a'nff'profltuble market for all that can
befftlsed and it is nothing short of a
punic loss to allow so much arable
lurid to lie idle and unproductive.

aro in every way worthy of patronage 'offered to extend its   line to Ferguson
and thoso who send away for goods
have but littlo public spirit and but
little interest in tho place in which
tbey are making a living. We believe it to be the duty of every individual in the city, whether he owns
real estate, or is simply working for
wages, to purchase his goods from the
home merchants instead of sending
for them to Toronto or other large
eastern centers us tbe patronage so
diverted serves to build up other
plaies at the expense of the home
town. Simple self interest should
decide tbie queBtion in favor of the
home dealer. Tbe motto of all should
be "Patronize home merchants."

An agitation is on in Great Britain
for a redistribution of parliamentary
representation by which Ireland will
loss thirty votes in the house. It is
contended by thoso who favor redistribution that ln tbe house of commons Ireland, which bus the smallest
population, hus lu.'l members, Scotland,
with a slightly larger population, lias
?,, while the county of London,
which has more people than Ireland
and Hcotlund combined, has only (iii
mem hers.
The London Times in speaking' in
favor of the redistribution plan and
ofthe preponderance of Irish members, in proportion to its population
wlien compared with that of England
and .Scotland, sajs: "This is a highly
anainalous and absurd condition of
atl'airs and cries aloud for a remedy.
The general conduct of the national*
ists during tbe recent session, not 10
mention the temptation their numerical strength offers to place-hunting
politicians, uinphas I zes the incongruity.
Irish representation is grossly out of
proportion on broad grounds of equity
and common sense, anil it Is made
several degrees more grotesque by the
fact that 111 Ireland there arc cases
where little groups of u few hundred
electors send a member to pallia-
ment."

output of 100 tons per day. The Eagle
adds: "The- list will be kept standing, and the names added as they are
given in to us. How much ore will
you or your company guarantee to
ship if the railway is built to Ferguson V" In another editorial paragraph
the Eagle says, and it goes to show
thut tho Lardeau section is enjoying
an increased aotivity: ''There will
bo nearly as many men employed in
tbe district this winter as heretofore
employed in the summer season, but
there are plenty of men on deck. The
number of properties which will work
the year round hereafter murks a new
