to 8.J
The report of tbe finance committee

6. Your committee has gone through
and considered the estimate prepared
by the eity clerk of the revenue and
expenditure for the current year and
recommends an approximate addition
to the rato of i7 1-2 mills on the dollar un lands and 2 1-2 mills on 50 per
cent, of a sessed value of improvements, required to pay interest on and
to provide sinking funds for the debenture debts, that a general rate of
five mills on the dollar and a school
rate of two mills on the dollar on

9. That the following accounts be
paid: W. G. Gillette, high school,
$1,785; J. A. Say ward,sidewalks, $00.
Tho report was taken up and considered clause by clause. On clause 5
a number of questions regarding tbe
city hoalth officer wore askod by
Aldermen Morrison, Drew and Bosnian. Thsy wished to know ii the city
was bound to pay the legal expenses
incurred in the suit now in progress
in which Dr. Laliau was sued for
damages for acts done while acting as
health officer, and ii so, now far the
oity's responsibility went.
The mayor stated tbat the previous
council bad discussed the matter
thoroughly. The council was bound
in the present suit, but when it was
Mulshed responsibility of the council
was nt an end whichever way it
went. An appeal would, to all pur-
puses, bo a new trial. However,
until tbis trial was settled they were
responsible.
Aid. Morrison wished to know if
they had the written opinion of the
city solioitor in the matter.
Muyor Fletcher stated that the
solicitor bad appeared before the
counoil and gave his opinion on the
matter, and had besides expressed
hlnisclt to him privately in tho
matter.
Aid.   Scanlan   said that   while that
was   all   right,    tbat as a matter   of
business ho thought   it better   for the |
council to have the writteo opinion of I
the city solicitor on file.
The clause was then passed, it being
understood that the written opinion
was to be obtained from the solicitor.
On clause 6 Aid. Selous arose to
register a kick. In raising money for
school purposes he thought it only
fair that those who got the benefit of
them should share in paying for them
and by placing the Increased tax
on lands alone and not on improvements this was not effected. Many
men with large families who were
getting the benefit of the school
facilities had pieces of land aud
houses, where they lived, in outlying
parts of the city,where the land values
were small. Their taxes for school
purposes were so very small oompared
with those of the man who owned a
business lot be thought it therefore,
manifestly untaiir to increape the taxes
on the one and let the other.foi whose
benefit the improvements in tbe
schools were made, to go scot free.
A petition was presented on behalf
of tbe boat club, signed by 175 people,
including tbe business men of the
city, asking that the city instead of
holding a clebration on Dominion Day
assist the boat club in the rcgetta to
bo given on July 25th, by endorsing it
and giving it what financial aid they
saw fit. After some little discussion
it was decided on motion of Alderman
Morrison,seconded by Alderman Scanlan, that this should be done.

Crow's Nest Pass Coal Co.
Is Mining 2500 Tons
a Day.
Ovens  Have a Capacity of
850 Tons, In. 24
Hours.
Among the guests at the Phair is T.
C. Thompson, accountant and land
commissioner for the Crow's Nest
Pass Coal Co., who is in the city on a
business visit. In speaking about the
affairs of nis company Mr. Thopmson
says that the output of coal .is very
satisfactory and there is a steady increase from the oollierles of both Coal
oreek and Michel, under the very able
management of T. R. Stockett.
In relation to tbe output of coal Mr.
Thompson said: "We are now mining close on to 2,500 tons of coal per
dny of IB hcurs. The coke capacity
of our 636 ovens, all of which are not
in operation, is about 850 tons a day,
and should soon reach the 1,000-ton
per day mark. Only about 200 tons of
coke a day is being taken by the British Columbia smelters, but we are ex-
oecting to market largely increased
shipments to the Granby, Trail and
Nelson smelters, owing to recent enlargements in these plants. The
Granby plant alone is likely to require
200 tons per'd&y. In addition to this
we have in prcspect the Midway, Ferguson and Marysvillo plants, from
each of which we hope to receive big
orders for fuel before a, great while.
In fact," the outlook lbr an Increase in
tbe consnpmtiun of our products is
very bright.
"Fernie," continued Mr.Thompson,
'.a very prosperous. There is an im'
mediate prospect of an understanding
being reached with the'government in
reference to tbe townsite interests;
when this is done it will'bo bl- great
benefit to the town, and will tend to
allay thc apprehension that has existed for some time past.
"The development work on the
Morrissey oreek colliery is being
pushed with vigor and the company
hopes to be able to oommence shipments from there some time this  fall.
"From Miohel coal ot an excellent
quality iB being shipped in large
quantities. The coal is so good that
some of our customers prefer it to any
other," concluded Mr. Thompson.

GOVERNMENT
TO REGULATE
' CATCHING THE GALE.
Boers Think Recent Diplomatic Disclosures Have Affected  Opinion.
Paris, Feb. 17.���Dr. Leyds, the
European agent of the Boers, who iB
now in this eity, was questioned by
the AsBsoclated Press correspondent
today regarding the object of the mission to the United States of the Boer
delegates, Messrs. Wessels and Wol-
marins, who sailed for New York
from Boulogne, on Feb. 14th, on the
steamer Rotterdam. He replied tbat
they were merely going to America in
response to invitations from American
piu-Boers with the view of reaching
an arrangement for the distribution of
funds and otbei assistance contributed
by people of the United States toward
the Boer cause.
In other quarters, however, the impression obtained that the journey 1b
prompted by developments of the
Anglo-German controversy as to the
attitude of the powers previous to the
Spanish American war which members of the Boer delegation believe,
has produced a change of sentiment in
the United States toward Great
Britain and the Boers hope to utilize
this supposed revulsion of feeling in an
endeavor to get the United States government to modfy its attitude towards
mediation.

CHEAP FINING AND SMELTING.
William M. Urowcr, representative
of the New York Engineering and
Mining Journal, is authority for the
statement that the mines ol the
Uoundary can extract aud tieat ore
that carries values of only $3 per ton.
Ore of this character, ho snid, might
not pay interest on the investment,
but it would make an allowance for
wear and tear. Mr. Brewer further
stated that this was the lowest cost at
which any metalliferous mines of the
world were worked with the possible
exception of tne iron mines of
Alabama. Mr. Brewer is a mining
engineer and in his capacity of correspondent has frequently visited the
different mining camps and made a
close study ot conditions. His estimate, therefore, of the cost of mining
. and reduction of the ores of the
liouuday may by accepted as approximately correct. The fait that mining
and reduction can be accomplished
for such a very low price speaks
volumes for the ability of the management of the mines and smelters of the
Boundary and reveals that they must
have adopted modern means and labor
tavmg devices to cut down tho cost
of operations in every department to
produce such a low aggregate result
for mining and reduction.
Mr. Brewer is of the opinion that the
Boundary mines could be mado co pay
with copper nt !i cents. This result,
too, could not bave heen accomplished
wero fuel at the high price which the
organs of the 0, P. li. have been endeavoring to prove that it is. The
Crow's Nest Coal and Coke company,
when it was demonstrated to it by
representatives of the mining and
smelting interosts of the Boundary
thnt the margin of profit had been jut
down by the fall in tho pi ice oi copper
very generously lowered the piice of
coko at Fernie to $4 per ton. Coal
costs but $2 a ton at Fernie, This is a
reasonable price for fuel in this
province where tbe cost of producing
it is higher than in the eastern portion of the Dominion where labor,
supplies, etc., are moro reasonable
than they are here, and yet some of
tbe henohmen of the C. P. R. are so
unreasonable as to quote Mar a time
pruvince figures and to expect that
ooke and coal can be sold for the samo
piicc here. The crusade which the
Canadian Pacific is making, however,
haa nothing but greed and selfishness
behind it, and the people here fully
understand what its objects are. One
is to seoure control of 50,000 acres of
coal land and thu other is to in some
way prevent tho Crow's Nest railway
from becoming the useful institution
it is intended lo bo.
In order to accomplish these objeots
there is scarcely any misrepresentation
that would not be mado by the O.I'.R.
its organs and its henchmen.
One thing is most palpable and that
is that thu smelters are not being oppressed and injured by the high price
of coke and coal when thu Boundary
smelters can mine and smelt ores that
only run $.1 to the ton. This is an
Irrefragable proof that thu statements
made la the interests of thn C.P.R. to
the contrary are simply misrepresentations.
HBCOGNIZH THE INTERIOR.
Inquiry into the origin ol the cases
coming before tlie Supreme court of tbe
province shows that at least half of
tbem aro from that part of the province east of Ash'Toft. In appeals
before the Supreme court the proportion is even higher and amount to
three-fifths of the total, Of the appeal
cases tbosu involving nn interpitation
of,the Mineral act amount to one half
of thi! whole,    Appeals from  Y ukon
territory may be hoard either in thc
courts of the Northwest territories or
Iii llriti.-h Columbia and on account
of the convenience to tbo clients and
to counsel, ninety per cent, of them
are heard in Viotoria or Vancouver, a
fapt which adds to the proportion of
mining     appeals.       Within    British
Columbia east of Ashcroft there arc 6.1
members of the oar in active practice,
and in the remainder of the province
there are 130. Of the present members
of the bench all reside in Victoria
and when in active practice before
tbeir appointment but one of them,
except very occasionally, had the conduct of a mining case, and the exception, Mr. Justice Walkem, had an experience confined to cases with regard
to placer mining.
It is thus apparent that, as at present constituted, the Supreme court
bench can hardly be said to be representative of the different sections of tho
province or of the different departments of legal practice. They all
reside in the one city and consequently there is a sentiment that thc legal
business of the country would be ear
ried on more expeditiously and at less
cost it their places of residenje were
wider distributed.
Being the seat of tho so large a
proportion of the legal business coming before the courts, and of the residences and places of business of two-
fifths of the lawyers of the provinoe,
the mining sections oan with justice
practically demand that their interests
and those of the community should be
so far recognised tbat a member of
the bar familiar with the^practice of
mining cases should bo appointed to
the vacancy on the bench, though not
necessarily to the chief justiceship.
The appointment of either Mr. Bod-
well or of Mr.Davis to the bench or to
the chief justiceship would bo welcomed by the bar of all parts of the
province, but since both theso eminent legal practitioners, it is understood, have declined, or would decline
the position, the whole trend of feeling, both before the bar and in ths
business community, is 6trongly in
favor of the recognition of their vast
interests by the., nomination to the
bench of a man whose sympathies and
special knowledge of mining laws
would make him familiar with and
especialy fit him to deal with the
cases that arise in the mining sections of the province.
MISSTATEMENT CORRECTED.
The flood of misrepresentation of the
Crow's Nest Southern railway and of
the Crow's Nest Coal company is not
confined to the nest, but is also in
progress in the east. The Mail and
Empire, of Toronto, on February 7th
published a dispatch from Ottawa
which stated that Mr. Hill, of the
Great Northern railway, had acquired
54 perc ent. of tho stock of the Crow's
Nest Coal Cb. ; that the company was
shipping its best coke snd coal to the
United States, and wns supplying the
Canadian smelters with inferior fuel
for which an exorbitant price was
being charged. The Mail and Empire
of February 12th, which came to hand
yesterday, contains the follwing
retraction:
"G. 0. S. Lindsey, general counsel
for tho Crow's Nest Coal company,
limited, assures The Mail and Empire
that the statements contained iu an
Oltawa despatch to the Mail and Empire, published on February 7th, with
respoot to the Crow's Nest Coal company, are incorrect. He states that
Mr. Bill has not acquired 54 per cent,
of tho stock in the company; that he
has not secured a controlling interest,
and that tho company is not shipping
its best coal and coko to the Unitod
States, aud supplying the Canadian
smelters with inferior stuff at an exorbitant price. The Mail and Empiro
takes this opporutuity nf correcting
the statement, and regrets that publicity should have heen given to assertions which aro erroneous."
EDITORIAL NOTE?.
A despatch dated Meloburne, Jan.
1-th, says: In reply to the Canadian
manufacturers" complaint that the
now Commonwealth tariff is In luring
Cunadian trade, Mr. Barton, thc Federal Premier, says the Canadians havo
benefited by 35 years of protection,
and that he thinks thoy should appreciate Australia's desire to place her

TELEPHONE IMRPOVEMENIS.
H,   W.   Kent  Discusses  Up  Country
Line and the Coming Regatta.
yj. W. Kent, superintendent of (he
Veinon and Nelson Telephone company, oame in on Sunday from Vancouver and loft yesterday for Kaslo.
The company has been putting a considerable amount of money into bet-
torments of its lines in th-j upper
country and it is its intention to make
all the exchanges with metallic
circuits. This will entirely obviate
any possibility of induition.or, as the
telephone people call it "cross-talk",
besides making the conveisations
hoard more distinctly. No materia'
extensions of the up-countrv system
nre contemplated for the present. The
business of the company during the
past two years in Kootenay and Yale
has not been too profitable on account
of an opposition line operated in some
tonus, hut now that that company is
out of the way, the Vernon and Nelson
Intends to make tbe improvements
mentioned.
Mr. Kent is secretary of the North
Pacific association of Amateur Oarsmen, which holds its annual regetta
for this year in Nelson. He said that
there was continued Interest in rowing
matters at the ooast and that prospects
nre guod for a large attendance at
Nelson. The Vancouver Boating club
intends competing in all the events,
that is, they would send a senior four,
a junior fonr.a senior double, a junior
double and a senior single and a
junior single to compete.
Fur some of these events there might
he more than one entry from tbe club.
Victoiia and Portland clubs would
likely send the same number of entries
so that the regatta, so far as cau be
judged from the present outlook,
should attract a good crowd and be
an enjoyable event.
An effort was being made to persade
a crow to come from Winnipeg, but so
far nothing definite oonid be said
about it. Besides the events named it
is in the power of the local oomraittee
to put on extra events, as is often
done, among them being races for
lapBircak boats and canoe races. The
association piovides for an intermediate class in the races but so far these
have not been filled though they may
be this year. Another event Bometimes
put on is a "has-beens" race for thOBc
who have not been in a race for five
years. This event at Portland excited
great interest.
Speaking of the course Mr. Kent
said thut it was everything that could
be desired and he predicted that there
would be a large crowd oi enthusiastic
oarsmen and their friends in Nelson
at the time of the regatta.

3. E. Annable, manager of tho Nel-

P��ny of 21 people, for April 10th and

will present Horatius, the Montehank
or King Lear. This is tho first time
'hat a tragedian of note has beon

doubt, appreciate. The prices will

fix date uf trial and to other matters.
He contended tnat section 8fi of the
Municipal elections act, under which
the action had boen commenced, is
defective in operation and consequently that the trial jndgc had no jurisdiction either to fix the date of trial or to
compel the attendance of witnesses.
The argument of counsel for bcth
sides went into the question of tbe
fundaments of the jurisdiction of the
court.
His lordship in delivering judgment
said that in section 80 the intention of
the legislature was to provide a summary trial and it did not intend the
lengthy and exhaustive procedure of
the Dominion election trials. The
section was sufficient in itself for all
purposes for a trial of this nature and
the general power to "try" a petition
for such a contested election meant
that it .should bo tried by a judge in
accordance with tho UBual procedure
of the courts, whicb meaut, if necessary, the power to summons witnesses
and did mean a power to fix a time
and place of trial.
Counsel for the respondent not consenting to short notice of trial, tbe
date was fixed for Feb. 38th and tbe
place at Rossland.

A son was born to the wife of William Uunton on Sunday,February 16th.
it is expected thut Ernest Mansfield
will retnrn to Kelson in the course of
the next two weeks.
W. B. Scatle, who has beeu at the
hospital for the past three weeks, is
able to get around again.
At the record office yesterday a certificate of improvements was granted
to Frank Desjardin and E.   S.   Larson
0 n the Fortepin mineral claim.
At the regular meting of Nelson
Lodge, No. 25, Knights of pythias, at
their hall tonight arrangements will
be made to celebrate the regular anniversary. All Knights are invited to
be present.
Tho medals to be presented to the
individual members of the rink winning tho New York Lite Challenge
trophy for competition at tho Sandon
Curling bonspiel bave been bought
through J. J. Walker, tlie jeweler, of
Nelson. Thev are now in his window
for inspection, and are worthy to
encouragtt the best efforts of any
curler.
Owing to the rain and mild weather
that have extended throughout the
whole Slocan, the Sandon Curling
club has suggested to the cluOB likely
to compete in the bonspiel tnat was
set for today, that tho event be postponed until Thursday. This meets
the approval ot the Nelson curlers and
it is likely that with the postponement the personel of the Nelson rinks
may be ohanged in a few respects.
The rain ot the last two days has
cleaned the snow pretty well out of
the lower part of town but up the hill
there is a large   number   of   stretches
01 sidewalk where theownerahave not
yet heeded the warning sent out as to
cleaning off the wnlss. Wh'le the
present soft spell lasts this can be
done with but little labor. It is the
intention of the police to ouforce the
bylaw legarding it.
The lecture under the auspices of the
Florence Crittenden society tllis week
is to be given this evening instead
of on Wednesday as last week, and
will be in the Baptist instead of he
Fiesbyteiian church. Dr. llall iB to
deliver the lecture which will be upon
thu feeding of infants and children.
In it he will explain some of tho
causes of morality among infants and
give a large number of useful suggestions regarding their treatment.
Tho rains thnt have extended into
the Slocan have made trouble for the
railways. Tbe Kaslo and Slocan
suffered from n snow slide about
eighteen miles from Sandon. On Sunday morn ing the rotary snow plough
left Kaslo to remove the obstruction
and shortly after it got to the scene
another slide came ilown behind it
covering upward of 100 feet of track.
The snow plough was ti.us shut in
and unablud to operate on only lhe
smaller slide. The ono noar Kaslo
has a rare collection uf logs and rocks
in it and the work of removing it will
occupy some time. Traffic will likely
be sUKpc.ulcd fur th ree days.
A COFFEE SWOKD
Tbe Old Thing Would "Bob Up."
Colfee puts its sword into people
first one place and then another. Yon
may depend upon it,if you nro a coffee
drinker, and have ailments in some of
the oigans of the body, that coffee is
uoing its work. You may prove
Whether it is or nut, by leaving it off
for ten days or two weeks, although
it uften takes from nine monthi to
two years to recover fiom its effect*,
Mr. .1. W. Ashby. Ml. Airy, N. C,
says: ''1 was a coffee drinker for 25
yours. About three years ago I Buffer*
ed greatly with pains in the region of
niy heait and the pit of my stomach.
These pains appeared about lhe slime
time each day. I wondered if Ooffee
might not be the limit so began the
test of leaving off coffee, The pains
ceased, but when I began to use colfee
nguin tbe Mme old pallia would 'bob
np.' I have now been using Postum
for some time in place of coffee and
am entirely cured of the neuralgia of
the stomach and heart.  Rcspoctlully."
Yesterday was the fifth nnniversay
of the birth of Miss Florence Roberts,
of Florence Park. Several of tbe little
girls juvenile friends called to celebrate the event and a pleasant time
was had with games, luncheon, etc.
F. O'Reilly, P. L. 8., returned yesterday from a professional trip to
Silverton. He reports that a number
of snowslides took place in the Slocan
on Sunday. There is not much snow,
but the sudden thaw of Saturday and
Sunday caused the slides.
It has been foutd as the result of
thc ballot fur a candidate to represent
the medical men of tho interior in
the Provincial Medical council that
Dr. Arthur was practically thc unanimous choice. Ballots were set out to
the various doctors of the interior a
couple ot mor.tns ago and .ludge Forin
consented to count the ballots, tbe result of which has now boen announced. As tbe council at present is constituted, four of its seven members
belong to Vancouver Island,two to the
City of Vancouver and one to New
Westminster, leaving the interior
without representation.
On Saturday when the Boundaiy
passenger train reached Weat Robson
it was discovered that one of the
brakesmen was missing. The last that
had been seen of him was when he
left the car to set the brakes after the
train emerged from the long tunnel.
A party uf men went "back to see if
any trace of him could be found and
they had not gone far belore they
came on nim walking along the track.
It appears that as he walked along
the r oof of a car that he stepped on a
loose piece of ice and was pitched off
the irain which was travelling rapidly. By a fortunate chance he went
head foremost into an immense snow
bank and was not even scratched.
An entertainment is to be given on
the evening of March Otb in the Congregational church by the Enid Martin
Concert Co., under the auspices of the
Ladies' Aid of the Congregational
ohurch. Miss Martin has lately returned from Paris where she bas been
studying under the renowned teaoher
Madame Marchesi, who has expressed
the opinion that her success as a vocal
artiste is assured. Her voice is a
mezzo-soprano and is said to he of
rich qualit) and of great purity of
tone, with a very extensive range.
She is supported hy Fellowes Hanson
and Edgar Bayliss, the former a baritone, and the latter an organist of
ability, both of tnein with an established musical reputatiun.
John Gryfl and Harry Lanola were
recently committed for trial at Nelson
by Magistrate Armstrong, of Fernie.
They are charged with stealing on
September 21st, money Lorders of $22
and $50 issued at Clearwater, Man.,
and payable to the order of John
Graves, of Fernie, and also with forging thu signature of John Graves to
thu money ordors and thereby securing the money on tbem from A. W.
llleasdel, branch agent of the Dominion
Express Co. It seems that John
Graves had been expecting remittances
from Manitoba aud made inquiries at
the poBtoffice ia September, but found
no mail for bim. Soon after he was
taken sick -with typhoid fever and
went to the hospital at Lethbridge
where he remained for two months.
On his return to Fernie, Graves found
that someone else had secured his
lett.rs. Chief Barnes began an investigation and it was learned that the
letters had beun delivered to Gryff,
who is a Slav, and who pronounces
bis name so that it sounds like Graves.
With tbe assistance of Lahola the
signature was forged to the orders and
the money sueured. The accused wore
arrested at Elko.

view that the government should
build the sable and states that a pri
vate concern, the Corumerieal Cable
company, has already contracted fo;
cable to Hawaii for November next,
intending to extend the line to the
Philippines within two years alter
The president today sent to the sen
ate a message recommending the re
tireraent of naval constructor Rich
mond P. Hohson, and in accurdance
with this recommendation, Senator
Gallinger immediately introduced a
bill providing for Ilobson's transfer to
the retired list.
In his message, the president given
as his roason, tbe tronble that Mr
Ilobson has had since 10U0 witn his
eyes and recited the history of that
trouble. It appears that in June. 1900,
he was admitted to the naval hospital
at Yokohama, Japan, when, according
to the records, he suffered from weakness of the retinas of the eyes which
infirmity is was stated had been contracted while on duty in repairing
ships at Hong Kong, In January,
1902. he was examined by a retiring
board which decided thut his incapacity was such as to justify retirement.
The messago concludes as follows: lu
consideration of the foregoing, but
especially of the gallant service rendered by Mr. Uobson in the sinking of
the Merrimae in the harbor ot Santiago during the recent war with Spnin,
I recommend the enactment of �� suitable measure for his retirement.
