Victoria,

which tlm
Dee. ]0.-The plans for
Westmiueter bridge, for
government is calling fur
tenders, were seized today by the collector of customs for duty. They
nere prepared at Kansas City by Mr.
Waddell, the bridge expert, and the
collector contends that they are liable
to }:i,0ii() in duty, thiH being 20 per
cent, of tn-o nnd a hall per cent, of
tlir estimated cost of tbe bridge The
plans of the 1'uget Sound If ridge and
Dredging Co. for the proposed bridge
at I'oint Elliee were seized for the
sime reason, The provincial government is appealing to Ottawa against
tlie action of the collector. The
amount r.f duty claimed on the plans
lrom the Seattle company is 8400.
Premier Dunsmuir has decided to
close the Alexandra mine on account
of tlie iieiion of the miners in quitting
wm k last Saturday to attsnd a meeting for the purpose of forming a confederation ot all the coal mining
unions in the district. The miners
deoided to confederate.
Premier Dunsmuir says he will always tnat with bis own men but not
with representatives ol a confederation which includes employees of
other companies.
Investigation has proved that the
flie in the Extension mine, where the
terrihlo disasters occurred a few
months ago, has not been smothered,
through the air being shut off and It
will likely be necessary to flood the
mine, as was done at Cnmox. This,
liesiileH being a costly operation, will
take a long time and after the Hie is
out, it will take longer to piiiup out
again ��> thnt the mine would be
closed   indefinitely.
The ten men from Victoi ia for the
Canadian rifles which the Canadian
government is raising for service In
South Africa, left for the east tonight.
They arei Corporal B. H. Anderson,
H. Robinson, E. C. Carey, N. Macdonald, J. A. Warlcigh, H. Little, R. C.

out the men, and about two months
afterwards thc Le Hoi got rid of thoso
TiTTrnT �� tjt T-i i miners who weie trade unionists. The
JJ U IIADJLJj ! shovellers and 'mockers' wauled an
increase of 2a. a day; and, as this
would have brought their wages to a
level win.di obtains in nil the other
caiups, 1 think it might have been
just as well to give them the raise, I
believe in having skilled labor iu a
mine, even if you have to pay a little
moie for it.''
" What is the outlook at the Le Roi
itself?"
"Good. In spite of numerous adverse circumstances, I consider that
the position of the mine today marks
a great advance on former times.
Since I arrived in Loudon I have
heard that the Le Roi has borrowed
heavily from ceiiain banks, and that
some of these banks bave called in
their loans. It is utterly untrue that
tbe banks are putting tne mine to
any trouble in this mallei. Money
has been borrowed, but it has been
applied to the very best purpose���viz.,
mine development���and there are
ai sets in abundance to discharge anv
liabilities that may exist. This expenditure on development has put
tlie mine in a position in which it can
smelt 1,-JfiO tons a day at Northport
and handle the same quantity of ore
at the mine. I have just heard oy
cable that the examination of the var-
ous levels now proceeding lias turned
out very satisfactorily su far. At tliP
000 feet level, for Instance, large
bodies of ore have been found averaging from ��3 to ��3 10s per ton. This
is very good indeed. It is worth remembering that "herl we compare
the cost of working for 1806-97 and
11)00 we find that in mining.trausport,
supplies, aud smelting there has been
decrease of at least 75 per cent.,
with no increase in wages. I think,
indeed, we are within sight of the
time when the total cost of working
will be brought down to $7.50 per
on."
"What is the best Le Roi can do
assuming that tho labor and other
labors Bre composed?"
"I think that eventually the mine
will pay a profit of ��800 to ��1,000 a
day. It oannot do that, immediately ;
but everything points to some such
return in the nciir future.1'

Toward Reccrd Time.
New York, Dee. 10.���The bike
racers at Madison Square Oaiden tonight were grinding away to regain
positions. Mile after mile was clipped off and before another day is
passed tbe record is in danger of
being broken. In the early morning,
the men had settled down to a somewhat loafing pace but threatening
spurts were frequent. At 7 o'clock
the leaders had cut off eight miles of
the IS the) had fallen behind the
record. Thc attendance keeps up and
tonight there was 5,000 people in the
g.n-di'ii. The score at 1 o' clock this
morning (Wednesday) was: Fischer

Scranton. Dec. 10.���The exclusion of
Chinese, Japanese and other Asiatics
from American territory, ticket scalping, legislation and the advisability
of adopting a universal labn) for
union made goofs, were the principal
questions that claimed alteiition of
the delegates at today's two sessions
of the American Federation of Labor.
The resolutions advocating thi exclusion of the Chinese were adopted by the
convention without consideration, but
in Iho matter of excluding the natives
of Japan and other Asiatio lands a
snag was struck and this part of the
anti Mongolian agitation was burked
so far as the present convention is
concerned. The special committee having charge of the exclusion matter was
unanimous in favor of favorably reporting the Chinese section of the resolution, but was divided in regard to
lhe Japanese. Tbe Pacific coast delegation led the discussion on Chinese
exclusion, but were divided when it
came to exclude other Orientals. The
burden ot thc remarks of those opposed to the Japanese invasion may endanger the passage by congress of the
Ch'nese act. The ticket scalping
debate was a qnile lively affair. The
delegates representing the railway
telegraphers opeued the fight against
the resolution making thc point that
such action wa" beyond the jurisdiction of the federation. lhe "typos"
were helped alo.g in tbe argument
for the adoption of tbe ��� resolution by
several socialist members of the convention. When n viva voce vote was
taken those iu favor of pennitting
ticket scalping won by an overwhelming majority. Thc resolution for a
universal label, which baa been
jarned on a long time, was again defeated those favoring the idea fought
gallantly but thc delegates had made
up their minds un the question and
crushed the proposition when it'eame
to a vole. The convention disposed of
much routine business during tbe
course of the day. The important
question cf trade autonomy will be
sent to a special committee which
will be announced tomorrow.
FLOODS AMONG RESIDENCES.
Uursting Water Pipes Do Groat
Damage in New Yolk.
Now York,Dec. 10.���By tho bursting
of an immenso water supply pipe tonight, an iiniiieiiie amount of damage
was done in the residence section of
the city between Flftyilfth and Fifty-
ninth streets and Madison and Park
avenues. Some estimates place it at
thousands of doiars but In reality all
estimates are at present guesses. Cellars and basements were flooded, cars
were blocked. Thousands of gallons
of water that poured into the avenues
rushed northward finding outlets in
the side streets and there inundating
basements of handsome resl��nces. Foi
two hours, the water swirled through
the streets before it began to subside.
EXPLOSION IN STEEL WORKS.
Buildings Shattered And Beams Hurled Many Yards.
Sharon, Pa., Deo. 10.���An explosion that shook the earth for miles
around, shattered windows and moved
adjacent buildings from foundations
in.il caused injury of nine men at the
Sharon Steel company's plant today.
Uf the nine injured four were taken
to the hospital. The explosion oc-
curicd in the casting department of
the "pig mill." Thu metal was
being poured from the ladle into thu
casting machine when it eaino in
contact with some water, which
caiucd a blast that was felt a great
distance. Tha casting bouse was completely wrecked. Large s'rlps of
heavy corrugated iron beams and
other material were hurled hundreds
of yards by the explosion,

Washington, Deo. lo.���Representative Sibley introduced in the house,
a bill authorizing the construction of
a railway across Aluskii from Cooks
inlet ti llebring straits, a distance of
%0 miles, by trans-Alaskan railway
companies. The bill grants a right

Senate Considers the   Treaty���The
House \ppolntsCommittees.
Washington, Dec. 10.���The opening session of the Senate today was
devoted to rontine business such aB
tbe presentation of petitions, memorials and bills. The Senate then
went into executive session on motion
of Senator Lodge who has charge of
the lliiy-l'auucefote treaty and adjourned at 5.35 p. tn.
Senator Morgan Introduced a bill
providing for the construction of the
Nicaragnan canal. The bill provides
un aggregate of 8180,000,000 of which
85,000,000 is immediately available
and ot which aggregate sum such
amounts aro necessary to be appropriated by congress from time to
time. The ocntrol of tbe canal, and
of the canal belt is vested in a board
of eight citizens of the United States,
in addition to the secretary of war,
who is to be president, Thc members
of the board arc to be paid a salary of
88,000 a year and they are to be chosen, regardless of political affiliation.
There is a provision authorizing the
establishment of a regiment from the
regular army on the canal belt to
guard it pioperly and courts are also
authorized conformable to the powers granted by the governments of
Nicagarua and Costa Uica. There
also is a provision making three
divisions of the canal during the construction and there is to bu a chief
engineer and two assistant engineers
en each division, the ohief to receive
n salary of $0,000 and the assistants
88,000.
After a number of nominations had
been confirmed Senator Lodge called
up the Hay.Pauneefotc treaty and
made a brief statement regarding
that convention. The Senate then adjourned in order to give the Democratic caucus committee an opportunity to hold a meeting Mr. Lodge
contended that the new treaty does
away with nil the objectionable features of the treaty cf tbe last congress
and enumerated the particulars in
which the revised agreement conforms
to thc action of the senate in tbe last
congress when tho old treaty was before it. He analyzed the new treaty
from beginning to end, showing that
in specific terms It abrogates the
Clayton-Bulwcr treaty of 1850 which,
he said, had stood constantly in the
way of the construction of an isthmian canal. The abrogatiun of this
treaty, he contended, was a most important achievement and he did not
believe that thc United States should
or would lose an opportunity to make
secure that concession. Senator Lodge
said further that practically Great
Britain had agreed to turn over the
management of the canal to the
United States, not only in time of
pence but in time of war. lt is understood that the treaty will be called up
tomorrow.
Washington, Deo. 10. ���Speaker
Henderson, at the session of Ihe house
todny, announced thc appolrtmeut of
committees Usually the committees
are not appointed until after the holidays recess, but Speaker Henderson
had the situation well in hand when
Congress met and having completed
the lists, he announced them. The
early appointment of the committees
should facilitate legislation considerably. A speech on tho Philippines
was dcliverad by venerable Ex-
Speaker Culusha A. Crow, of Pennsylvania, Mr. Dm ke formally announced
thc death of Senator Kyle and as a
mark of respect, the house adjourned.
The adjournment was till Friday.

MAYOR AGAINST EDITOR,
Quite a lively row is is progress
between the editor of the Miner-
Gazette, of Grand F'orks, and thc
mayor of that enterprising oity.
The paper accused the mayor of
drinking in a music hall and in
turn the mayDr was disposed to inflict personal punishment on tbe editor, but after he had used considerable forceful language his wrath had
somewhat spent its fury so the editor
of the Miner-Gazette still lives.

COMING CITY ELECTION.
Guesses as to Possible Candidates For
Municipal Honors.
Though the date for the city elections is approaching, tbe nomination
being on Monday, Jan. 13th, and the
elections on thc following Thursday,
no definite announcement have been
made by any probable candidate. Iu
matters of civic economy the course
of the presont council lias met with
general approval, their administration
having been conservative and guided
by business principles. Had the question of lighting not arisen at the present juncture it Is doubtful whether
there would be n contest at all.
The lighting question now forms a
dividing line and those who have
favored the entering into an agiee-
ment with the Wust Kootenay Power
and Light company are practically
bound to put a candidate in the field
or admit that they were wrong iu
their proposal. As representative uf
that party the choice will undoubtedly mil upon the pro-cut incumbent
Mayor Fletcher or Aid. b'elous
The opposition in tbe council to the
bargain with the Power company was
lead by Aid. Madden and Irving and
as representative of that course of
action the latter stands in the position to claim the nomination if he
wishes it, but su fur lie has nut announced his intentions.
The name of Ex-Aid. MuKillop has
been mentioned. He was expected to
be a candidate last year and gave his
word to accept the position of mayor
shuuld there be nu election and upon
Mayor Fletcher's appearing in tbe
field, he carried out bis word and de.
cllned to make a contest of it. On
the electric lighting question he
stands (ot a temporary purchusu of
power from month tu month, if that
can be arranged, and for making the
best of thu present cily plant and for
increasing it as circumstances permit,
Kx Aid. Ilillyer Is generally supposed to have a desire to serve the
city in thu capacity of mayor; his experience as an alderman makes him
uot n tyro In civic business and bis
views on the subjict of lighting
would place him In opposition to the
picsuut mayor or Aid. Selous, but it
is not likely that there will bu two
candidates uf thu same views on Ibis
mutter.
It Is jnst possible that a disposition
may prevail tu lift this question ont
of the hands of those who have been
foremost on either side, to whom a
little personal fueling is attributed as
the cau*o of the veheineney of their
advocacy, and place it iu the control o
those who will approach all matter
of civic business with cool heads and
good business ability. Though the
municipal bee has never entered his
bonnet, there is quite a number who
have T. S. Mul'herson, of McPhcrson
and McCammon, in their minds.
However widespread thc idea ot thin
latter class may be,it would be impossible to say at present but it ia one
that Is likely to gather momentum
between this and nominal Ion day,and
if It dues present plans and expectations of several persons may very
muoh miscarry.

NEEDS A RAILWAY.
tity of machinery is being added and
the payroll of the company for October was $96,000.
Just aa soon as the Crow's Nest
railway is completed there will be an
increased demand for Crow's Nest
coal and ooke from Washington, O.e
gon, Idaho and Montana. The Great
Northern railway alone will use a
large quantity of coal for luel for its
locomotives. Hesides this the coke
will come into inoreased use in the
smelter plants at Ilutte, (ireat Falls
and in other reduction plants in the
United States adjacent to the boundary line, In or.ler to be ready for this
increased demand the Crow's Nest
company is pushing development
work ami increasing its nlant.andadil-
ing to its coke ovens. The working
force is being added to and by the endof
the coming year it 1�� thjught that the
company will be giving steady work
to over 3.OUO men.

A district tributary to Nelson eying out for transportation is that
lyii'g along the Duncan river from
Kootenay lake northward Small
steamers can now run past Howser
lake to a point known as Ball Landing, but from there up there is only a
trail, and a poor one at that. Four
incorporated companies, the Primrose,
Old Gold, Gninea Gold and Lardo-
VJuncan have developed their properties to the shipping stage. On the
Old Gold mine as much ore, some of
It running in value up to $200 a ton,
as can oe stored it awaiting means to
ship. To get it out of the way to
make room for what more may be
taken out in the course of development alone, this ore must be packed
on horses for 18 miles, necessarily a
coBtly process. All four companies
conic maintain a steady output of
hi^h grade ore. Besides these there
are the Wagner group, the Itannoek-
burn and the Abbott, also well developed properties.
Had there been means of transportation otfler claims would ere this have
been in equally as forward condition.
Prospecting has been delayed on account of the distance from a base of
supply. That large tract of country
stretching from Kootenay lake northward practically to the main line of
tbe 0. P. R. and from the divide
between the Lardo river and Duncan
river on the west to the Columbia
river slope on the east is almost virgin ground for the prospector. Only
the bare rooks of the higher levels of
a very small part of it have yet been
touched. That rich prli.es remain for
future efforts there is little doubt.
Those who nave spent money and
work transforming prospects Into
mines deserve consideration, and the
prosperity of the province would dictate tbe wisdom of making the way
easier for the prospector.
This is a district that cannot but be
tributary io Nelson. The link be-
���ween it and tbe main line of the C.
P. R., though short would be very
difficult of construction for a rail -vay.
The only available outlet is to Kootenay lake. Once a man iH aboard a
steamer round for a centre of trade to
do business he would undoubtedly
cume to Nelson. 11 is ore would be
shipped to Nelson for treatment, and
he would buy his supplies lure. Nelson would be helping itself in prosecuting un active campaign on behalf
of thu pioneers ot the Duncan.
Manager McNaught of Halcyon
Springs, intends to carry out his idea
of forming an association of thc
newspaper men of British Columbia.
The meeting which was called in
October last did not materialize as
tho date was at a time when the Duke
and Duchess of Cornwall and York
were in the province. Mr. MoNaugl.t's
idea is to hold a inceiing around New
Year's day so that if the association
is formed it could arrange fur the
proposed trip to California during
the coming year.

In order to provide funds to aid iu

however, in the best informed American circled that President Roosevelt's

On December 5th William Weir,
formerly president cf the defunct
lianque Ville Marie was released from
a IJnebec penitentiary after having
served 24 months, minus ono day.
Mr. Weir was sentenced on Tleceinbei
Oth, 18tl), upon a conviction of conspiracy with the other officials of the
bank to defraud the depositors. Tin
failure of the hank and the develop'
mentn at the time of thc trial caused
quite a sensation. Weir, who is over
70 years ot age, was found guilty and
sent to the ponitent'aiy. While he
was there he had other trials besides
his own for his son died last year in
Ottawa under distressing circumstances. The term of imprisonment
has borne hard with him, hut of
course, he should have thought of the
penalty will oh he would have to pay
for his transgressions when he was
conspiring with Ihe oilier olllcers of
the bank to rob the depositors, Mr.
Weir's downfall should prove a warning to otlieis and prevent them from
entering into transactions of a
crooked nature. The laws of Canada
are wonderfully impartial and show
no distinction between the thieving
banker or the penniless robber when
tbey are convicted of stealing.
From the English papers of Novem>
her 20th it is evident that the copper
situation is improving. Messrs.
Vivian, Younger and Bond in
their weekly review say that
consumes ate continually ou tne market and in "standard" there has been
pcrsltttcnt and sustained buying in
early "prompts," by operators who
are by no means reputed bears. At the
same time a healthier tone has been
shown in the European situation,
and Herman consumers are more regularly on tbe market. It is eontl-
dently exported that the industrial
depression on the continent is about
at an end, and that the demand for
copper in counecti.m with electrical
enterprises will shortly be resilired.
The llritish demand m likely tu bit
considerable In the near future.
Meanwhile there is believed to be no
danger of a out in prices In the
United States, holders of copper In
that country being much too shrewd
tu initiate a campaign of that sort at
a time when European reipiireninls are
undoubtedly expanding. a����At present
sales are dally being effected in
America, while production is being
restricted so that there is eveiy probability of the stocks of the combine-
tion being appreciably diminished
much sooner than most people
imagine.

There is] nothing like Asthmalene. It
brings instant relief, even in tbe worst,
cases.   It cures when all else fails.
The Rev. O F. WELLS, of Villa Ridge,
111., nays: "Your trial bottle of Asthmalene received in good condition. I cannot
tell you how thankful I feel for the good
derived from it. I was a slave, chained
with putrid sore throat and asthma for ten
years. I despaired of ever being cured. 1
saw your advertisement for the cure of
tbis dreadful and tormenting disease, Asthma, and thought you had overspoken
yourselves, bnt resolved to give it a trial.
To my astonishment the trial acted like a
charm.   Snnd me a full size bottle.

Gentlemen: Your Asthmalene is an
excellent remedy for Asthma and Hay
Fever, and its composition alleviates all
troubles whioh combine with Asthma.
Its success is astonishing and wonderful.
After having it carefully analyzed, we can state that Asthmalene oontains
no opium, morphine, ohloroform or ether.    Very truly yours,

Gentlemen : I write this testimonial from a sense of duty, having tested the
wonderful effect of your Asthmalene, for the cure of Asthma. My wife haa
been a HI cted with spasmodic asthma for tho past 12 years. Having exhausted
my own skill as well 11s many others, 1 chanced to see your sign upon your
windows on 130 th street, New York, I at onoe obtained a bottle of Asthmal'enn.
M v wife commonccd taking it about the flrst of November. I very soon noticed
11 radical improvement. After using one bottle her Asthma has disappear!d
and she is entirely free from nil symptoms. I feel that I ean consistently recommend the medicine to all who are afflicted witb this distressing disease.
Yours respectfully, O. D. PHKLPb, M. D.
Dit. Taft Bnos, Medicink Co, Feb. 5,1001.
Gentlemen : I was troubled with Asthma for 22 years. I have tried numerous remedies, bnt they have all failed. I ran across your advertisement aud
started with a trial bottle. I found relief at once. I have since purchased your
full sized bottle, and I am ever grateful. 1 have a family of four children, and
for six years was unable to work. I am now in the best/if health and am doing
business every day.   This testimony you can make such use of as yon see fit.

COMIC OPERA TONIGHT.
The "Chimes ot Normandy" Promises
to  Be an Unqualified Success.
The final full dress rehearsal of the
' 'Chimes of Normandy" before the per
tormanee to be given tonight at the
opera house took place last evening
and went off with a vim and dash
whieh augurs well for tbe success of
the undertaking. The members have
worked hard and faithfully and although amateurs the presentation of
this tuneful and popular opera will
rank with that of the best companies
on the road. It is not the society's
ambition to make money but to give
an artistio performance whicb will
be a pleasure to its members as well
as to the citizens,
The booking lias been large although there yet remain many good
seats to be taken. Owing to the
length of the opera and the number
of specialties the curtain will rise nt
8.30 prompt. The Operatic society
deserves the patronage of Nelson
people and Manager Parry is very
confident that this will he one ot the
society's greatest successes.

THE CITY
James Hubbard, who was latelv confined to the isolation hospital as a
smallpox patient states that the disease from which he was a sufferer
was not smallpox, but what is known
in tne east and to the south as chicken
pox.
Had weather has continued on the
main lake for several days past, aud
passengers from Kuskonook nnd other
lake ports where the landing facilities
are not good have been storm stayed
as ths steamers have not been able to
land either passengers or freight.
At the session of the Small Debts'
court yesterday but one case came up
for trial, being a dispute over the
amount of lumber received in the
building of a bouse ou Cedar street by
C. Zetler, the plaintiffs being the
Fairview Lumber Co. Judgment for
834 was given to tlic plaintiffs.
SWEET CAPORAL CIGARETTES.
At the record office yesterday there
was but one location entered, tbe
Minuiette, about ten miles in a westerly direction from Nelson, on Mctinr-
riaty creek,on the north side,one and
one-half miles up, by Charles Munroe.
Certificates of woik were issued to
James W. Hearn on the Golden Cord,
and to Jan.es Olsen on the Sunset aud
to W.U.McIsaac.on the E.xpress.    .
VV. N. Brayton was in the city jes
terday and states lhat he has disposed
of considerable farming land in the
Kootenay valley between Kootenay
Lauding and Port Hill, Idaho, the
property of the K. and S. railway.
Among the purchasers during the last
week was a committee from Oklahoma, who secured a large tract of
land on which 48 familes from Oklahoma will settle. The land is on the
Canadian side of the line, and besides
the settlers coining there are already
a large number who have takeu up
land and are working it successfully.
FIGURES WENT WRONG
Something About Food Tbat Saves  One
From Brain Tag.
That food can make or b-eak a man
ib shown in thousands of eases. Ii
ones work requires the use of the
brain, the food must furnish particles
that will build up thc brain and replace the daily loss.
Many times people foil ill not
knowing that the real cause of the
trouble is the lack of the right kind
of food to keep tbe body nourished.
As an illustration : A young man
in Chatham, Va., says, "I have been
employed for quite a time in a large
tobacco warehouse here. My work required a great deal of calculating,
running up long and tiresome
columns of figures. Lust winter my
health began to give out and I lost
from two to ten days out of every
uionln.
I gradually got worse instead of
better. It was discovered that when
I did work many mistakes ciept into
my calculations in spite of all I could
do. It was, of course, brain fag nnd
exhaustion. After dragging along
for several months I finally gave up
my position for every remedy on earth
that I tried seemed to make me worse
instead of better und I bad to force
down what food 1 ate, hating to see
meal time come.
One day a friend said, "Crider, do
you know there is a food called
Grape Nuts that I believe is made to
fit just such eases as yours?' The
name rather attracted me and I tried
the food. The delicious,sweetish tasie
plenstd me and I relished it. In
nbout a week my old color began to
come back and I gained in slrenglb
every day. Finally I weighed and
found   I   was   gaining    fast   in flesh,
Tbe members of the Liaensed
Victualler Association in Nelson will
hold a meeting this afternoon in the
Board of Trade   rooms.
December session of the County
court will begin next Monday before
bis honor, Judge Forin. Among the
cases coming up for tiial is that of
Hall vs. I.aliau, adjourned from last
court. A new jury is being suro-
mor.id. In this case the legal expenses much exceed the sum sued for:
Advantage is being taken of the
frost ot the pist few nights to make
all the ice possible at the rink and it
is expected that one Bheet Of curling
ice will be ready for Thursday night.
It is not likely that there will be ice
for tkating until Saturday night.
Several coasting accidents occurred
yesterday, in one of which it as reported that a small boy had his spine
injured. The police were vigilunt in
keeping youngsters olf the more dangerous strcts and had them warned at
the schools. In the accident mentioned it is said that a boy was coming
down the sidewalk on Josephine
street when the sled striking a pit-h
of ashes stopped suddenly, throwing
its occupant violently foiward wilh
such force that it is thought his injuries may prove to be very serious.
At the annual meeting of the Western Commercial Travellers' association it was decided to form a board
for llritish Columbia, instead of having a single member on the central
board as heretofore. Nominations
were made but most of tbe elections
were by acclamation. Those elected
were: Vice-President for Vancouver,
James Uevendge; directors for Vancouver, A. (1. Tayior, and Phil Ma!-
kin; vice-president for Victoria, H.
Walsh; director for Kootenay, F. II.
Gibbs, Nelson. There will be elections for the director for Victoria and
the director for New Westminster,
A. P Allinghaui, rate clerk of the
C.P. R. fiom Montreal, was in Nelson yesteiday on business connected
with the compiling of joint tariffs for
next year. Last year nn important
reduction was made in rates, namely
to four oents a mile within the province, but Mr. Allinghani holds out
little hope tbat there will be any
further reduction for 1903, He came
west in charge of the special train of
nine cars which brought a detachment
of troops to relieve those at Work
Point, wbo have been transferred to
Hong Kong. There were 204 men in
the party and four officers, and the
trip from Halifax to Vancouver was
made in seven days and three hours.
Mr. Allingham leaves for the east this
morning*.
A quiet wedding took place at St.
Saviour's church early yesterday
morning when Miss Maude E. Crease,
eldest daughter of thc late Charles
Klandford Crease, was united in marriage to Frank Grantham, of Ymir.
Thc ceremony was performed by the
Bt. Bev. John Dart, D D , D. C. L���
bishop of New Westminster and Kootenay. The bride was r.ttired in a
handsome grey broadcloth travelling
dress, trimmed with silk, with hat to
match. Only the immediate relatives
of the bride were present. After the
ceremony the newly-wedded couple
left for their home in Ymir. The
bride who is a sister of Magistrate
Crease, was for seme time matron of
the Kootenay Lake General hospital,
and is well known and popular in
the city. Mr. Grantham is accountant
at tbe Ymir mine,
horsemanship and tbe use cf tbe rifle.
The men acquitted themselves well
and Capt. Leckie expressed himself
well pleased with the abilities oJ
thc men offering themselves.
In thc evening the men chosen took
the prescribed oath, which is as
follows:
: do solemnly promise and [swear
that I will be faith'ul ana bear true
allegiance to His Majesty Edward
VII., bis heirs and successors; and
will faithfully defend him ar.d tbem
in their per on, ciowu and dignity
against all iheir enemies, and wili
ooey all orders of the officers set ovei
me.
Capt. Leckie and Dr. Kennedy led
for Fort Steele, the next recrnitinp
station, where 10 volunteers will be
enrolled.
For Christmas presents give yonr
