Eleventh  Yeai
An Address  to   the   Electors by Mayor Frank
Favors Public  Utilities and
"the Sustaining  of
Maynr Frank Fletcher yesterday
prepared the following address to the
electors, and shows the strong stand
which he takes on some leading
To the Electors of the City of
Nelson,���After having served you for
the pist year as Mayor of your oity, I
again oiler myself for the same honor
for the current year, with the foil
assurance that my candidature will
be favorably received, owing to tho
large number of ratepayers who have
requested mo to offer my servioe.
The unexpected condition of affairs,
that I found when I took office last
year, made it very necessary to pursue
an economical oonrse, and at the same
time to continue the necessary improvements in public works and carry
on the other departments of the city.
This policy, I will frankly say, must
bo continued during the present year,
or until such time as permanent prosperity sots iu. I feel confident that
thu majority of the ratepayers are
satisfied with the manner In wbich
lli.'ir affairs have been conducted during our term of office, and the many
improvements carried out as far as
the revenue of the uity permitted.
My belief in municipal ownership
ol publio utilities or franchises, has
never changed; and the course pursued
by the council and myself in making
a temporary arrangement to provide
the public with the necessary electric light nntil the oity is in a position to increase its own plant, never
for one moment jeopardized tbe city's
rights, or conferred privileges on any
outside corporaticn.
1 claim that the arrangement made
in purchasing supplemental power for
electrio light purposes is a good one
and assists our Tramway in continuing its operations, and is a financial
benefit to the ratepayers, as the uity
makes a large profit on all'power purchased and sold to consumers of electric light.
During mv term of office 1 worked
hard to secure a refinery plant for the
city, and although not successful,still
I have not given np hones in this direction ; and if elected I pledge myself to continue my efforts and keep
in touch with the parties proposing to
erect suoh reflnery, and perchance a
smelter in oonnnection therewith, and
I believe with favorable results for
the city.
The growth of railway business will
necessitate the establishment of work
shops; and the city must make every
effort to secure the same, as it would
mean the employment of a large number of skilled mechanics at good
wages, and tend to build up onr oity.
i have already done what I could to
wards the establishment of this industry in our midst, and if granted the
opportunity I will continue my
I have touched shortly on a few
important matters and I am prepared
to vindicate my administration, meet
fair criticism, and discuss municipal
matters on a publio platform.
Nelson has within it that which
should force it to the front; and all
tliat is required to realize the aspira
lions of our citizens is the cultivation of a spirit of harmony amongst
all classes. To assist in everythng
that will perpetuate peace and good
feeling will be my aim and object.
Despite the present temporary depression, which conservative men are certain will soon pass away. I and my
supporters am strongly in favor of
maintaining the present rate of wages
"id will do all that in me lies to further a policy of peace and progress.
Thus only can Nelson attain its proper
position in the province. Yours

Gran-;   Forks,|Jan. U.���Percy God-
enratb , a iireen wood press correspondent, left today for Eastern Canada
for the purpose of promoting a ooloni-
ization scheme in the Kettle River
valloy near Orand Forks. He hopes
to induce people to engage in fruit
raising and market gaidening. His
options inclnde one of Covert's fruit

Chamberlain Retracts Nothing From His Former
. Hockaday of Nelson. Meets
Death In a blizzard Near
Slocan City.
Slocan City, Jan. 11.���News was
brought into the city this morning
that S. Ilocl'iiday had lost bis life in
a blizzard on tbe Bondholder hill
about six miles from here on Thursday. He and three companions from
Nelson haa taken a lease on the
Bondholder aod weut up to the property on Monday to commence work..
Tbey had to break a trail all tho way
in and failing to reach camp before
night had to stay in the open. Next
day one of the men came back to
town while the others pushed on to
camp. Later on they flame down to
the road to get supplies and coming
back got caught in a blizzard and lost
their way, being forced to camp m i
snowbank over night. Hockaday became delirious but the other two left
him supposedly safe and got to the
mine. Early on Thursday morning
after partaking of food they went for
Hookaday but missed him and did not
find him till last night. He was dead,
having died from exposure. The body
will be brought here tomorrow bnt it
is not likely an inquest will be  held.
Colonial Loyalty More Than
Offsets Malice of Enemies.
American Legislators Develop tbe
Subjeot of Wireless Telegraphy.
Washington, Jan. 11.���The effect of
wireless telegraphy on thc future of
the submarine cable wa9 developed to
some extent today by the house commute on commerce in connection with
the hearing on the proposed Pacific
cable. Vice-president Ward of the
Pacific Commercial Gable Co.,continuing his statement of yesterday said be
believed the company he represented
would be able to make exclusive
traffio arrangements from points beyond the Philippines and connecting
with China and Japan.
Chairman Hepburn asked a series ot
questions as to the effect of wireless
telegraphy on tbe submarine cables.
Mr. Ward replied that the new system
presented a serious question. He was
not certain that tbe Pacific cable project would bave been undertaken if
the long distance experiments had occurred earlier. As to the claims' that
wireless telegraphy had been conveyed
two tbcusand miles across the
Atlantic, Mr. Ward said that if the
claims were good they would deter
people from laying any more cables.
When asked as to the effeot thus far
on lhe caule business, Mr. Ward said
that it bad depressed cable interests.
Mr. Stewart wanted to know if the
"cable companies had not chased
Marconi out of Canada" to which Mr.
Ward replied that he believed the
cable companies had insisted upon
certain exolusive rights they held.
Mr. James Ford stated that the
American Asiatic association doing
business in the Orient, favored a
cable under private control. It was
opposed to tbe government entering
the field of private enterprises. President Sorymger of the South and Central Americau Cable system made an
extended argument favorable to government control of the Pacific cable,
citing incidents of the Spanish-American war showing the importance uf
governmental control oi tbe cable.
London, Jan, 11.���Mr. Joseph
Chamberlain, the Colonial Secretary,
speaking at Birmingham tonight took
occasion to notice without entering
into a controversy rejoinder, the sar-
eiiems showered upon him in tbe
Reichstag during tho past week,
especially Count Von Bueiow's casti-
gation. Referring to the animosity of
foreign nations, he said he was well
aware that it was in some quarters
attributed to the" indiscrete oratory of
the Colonial Secretary."
What I have said, continued the
secretary, I have said. I withdraw
nothing ; I qualify nothing; I defend
nothing. As I read history, no British minister has ever served his
country faithfully and at the same
time been popular abroad. I, therefore make allowance foi foreign
criticism. I will rot follow tbe
example that has been set me. I do
not want to give lessons to a foteign
minister and I will not accept any at
his hands. I am responsible only to
my sovereign and my countrymen.
I do not denreoiate tbe importance
of the good will of the foreign nations
but there is something more important, it is the affection and confidence
of onr kinsfolk across the seas. Even
our great losses in tbe war that has
been lorced upou us, has brought in
their train one blessing of infinite and
lasting importance. That war has
enabled tbe the British empire to
find itself and has shown to all whom
it may concern that if ever again we
have to fight for our very existence
against the world in arms, we will be
supported by tho sons of Britannia,
in every quarter of the globe. How
can I, said Mr. Chamberlain, be made
responsible for what Lord Grey
has called filthy lies and what Lord
Rosebery describes as "vile, infamous
falsehoods," which have been disseminated in foreign countries without a
syllable of protest, without the
slightest interference by responsible
authorities? My opponents must find
some other scapegoat; tbey must look
further for the causes of hostility,
wbicb I do not think deserved, but
which always come to the surface
when we are in difficulty, and which
I am glad to say have never done us
serious harm.
Mr. Chamberlain said that when the
present ministry came into office it
was at a time when the country was
at peace with the world but the cabinet had to meet at least six burning
questions of international importance.
These legacies which Lord Salisbury
had to take up, included the Venezuelan boundaiy question, the Samoan
difficulty and the French position on
the Nile all of which the government
successfully grappled with and disposed of.
Our American kinsfolk, contiuued
Mr. Chamberlain, have agreed to a
treaty to enable the construction ol an
inter-ocean canal which I believe will
be of great advantage to tbe commerce
of the world, as it will be of great
advantage to the United States. I
might have included the stuggle between the Boers and Great Britain for
supremacy in South Africa, but I say
these are solid achievements io thc
oause of peace; and if we have been
unable to remove continental prejudice, which has always existed but
was never more coarsely expressed,
we bave at least been enable to settle
many substantial differences which
might have caused international
Extolling colonial patriotism, Mr.
Chamberlain said; Only a day or two
ago I read in an influential Canadian
paper an editorial which declared that
the pro-Beers in England were injuring the empire abroad and destroying
the unity which is our national safe-
This is only a sample ot the loyalty
expressed In every colony of the empire. This is a new factor in politics.
You must hereafter consult the
colonies upon every vital question of
Imperial politics.
Mr. Chamberlain concluded by paying tributes to Lord Kitchener's stern
resolution, the army's cheerful courage and Lord Milner's wise administration. .   	
Spring Will  See a Whlrl-a-
gig   of   Sporting
Feared That Smallpox May
Become Epidemic Before
London. Jan. 11.���On all sides in
the United Kigdom, extensive precautions are on foot to deal with the unprecedented outbreak of smallpox.
Tho total of smallpox cases in London
now only amounts to about 900. but
the cases are so scattered that they
create the greatest anxiety. Mediosl
men point out that the danger lies not
so muoh in the proportion to the population as in the proportion to the
usual smallpox figures of the metro-
polls whicb, generally scarcely
amount to a score per annum. Lon-
dons'laboratories are all busy turning
out lymph, thousands of tubes of
which are daily supplied. But even
then, tho demand cannot be met.
Almost all the large firms are ordering their employees to be vaccinated
aud it is doubtful if ever a city in the
history of the world contained an
manv sore aims bb London does today
Expert opinion prophesies that the
epidemic will not reach its height
until May. If the oases increase only
at tbe present ratio, and not at
double and treble the present rate, as
some people declare, there may be
several thousand smallpox victims in
London. The effect of such a state
of things "n the coronation, international business, and English trade
is almost incalculable.
Now tnat W C. Whitney's Derby
candidate Nasturtium and his stable
companion are safe at Newmarket and
the English experts have had a ohance
to see him, Nasturtium has become a
prime favorite for the Derby, sharing
with the entry . the Duke of Westminster tbe top price 6 to i against.
There is every reason to believe that
under anything like favorable training conditions the Ame'ican entry
will carry more money than any
starter in the coronation Derby. The
sporting papers devote columns to
describing Nasturtium and the bookmakers are counting on a plethora of
American money.
They are determined to make their
trans-Atlantic customers pay high for
tbeir patriotism. Seldom bas a horse
with the exception of Flying Fux,(the
Duke of Westminster's horse, which
won the Derby of 1899) which ~t.a
known to out rank all competitors,
started at Epsom with odds on, yet it
is auticipa ted that time will be Nasturtium 's penalty for fame. There is
more or less speculation as to who
will ride Nasturtium and there is
some talk tbat Mr. Whitney will seud
over a new jockey.
Second only to the interest taken in
the Derby is the anticipation regarding tbe Ascot meeting. This fashionable event, coming just a week before
coronation day,promises to be of more
or less brilliancy The fact that King
Edward has entered a number of important horses for this meeting
heightens tbe interest. With seven
sealed and four open New York
entries, out of 6 candidates for the
Ascot cup, the race cannot fall to attract Americans. Mr. Whitney is
undoubtedly responsible for one or
two of the New York entries, which
probably includes Nasturtium while
the Keenes and Mr. Crocker, have
two such entries. Tbe King is entering Lauzen. The Keenes are evidently
prepared for a vigorous English campaign, Foxhall Keene having no less
than tour entries for the Chester cup.
The papers here announce that the
coronation of King Edward will be
marked by an international athletic
tournament in London in which the
world's champions in boxing, wrestling, fencing and other branches of
sport will compete. Jeffries, Fitr-
simnions, Corbett, Sharkey and McCoy are said to be likely to appear in
addition to amateur boxers from Yale
and Harvard wbo will meet representatives of Oxford and Cambridge, One
of the largest halls in London has
already been procured. The winner
of the heavy weight boxing contest
s to receive in addition to the stakes,
a "coronation belt," valued at ��1,000,
which will be the gift of the National
Sporting Club. A tug of war between
soldiers representing the British and
American armleB is said to have been i
arranged while the strong men of
those countries ant; Franco, Germany
and Russia will also appear.
Tho Earl of Ilysart has offered
��1,000 towards the erection of a
national opera houie provided the
balance of the ��500,000, which he
believes is needed, is ruised in six
months. The carl has long been interested in this sohetio and has associated hiniselt with Profemor Stanford
and Sir Alex MaeKenzie in an endeavor to get the county council to
assist and subsidize a British home
for opera. It is doubtful whether the
earl's present effort will stimulate
inteiest in tho matter or meet with a
satisfactory response.

British Men of War to Seize Revolutionary Steamer.
Willemstadt, Jan. 11.���It is report
ed here that British war vessels have
received instructions to seize Venezuelan revolutionary Bteamer Libertador
(formerly the Ban Righ) if tbey meet
her flying the British flag and bearing her original name. A steamer
said tu be the Libertador was cruising
off this island Thursday last. She
is said to have succeeded in landing
arms and ammunition all along the
coast of Venezuela, It is farther reported that numbers of guerilla bands
were moving in the Venezuelan state
of Faloonneterre,going towards designated points of concentration and
avoiding the governments. Some
Britikh war vessels are expected to
arrive at Laguayra tomorrow or the
day after.
St. Petersburg, Dec. 28.���A somewhat painful impression has been
created in interested circles by the
dissensions which brought to an end
the Riisso-Amerinan gold mining enterprise on the Russian shore of
Bearing sea last year. The following
account roaches tho correspondent of
tha Associated Press from Russian
souroes: "Von Laelerstry and Co., a
Russian concern in whicb English
and American capital is interested,
bas a concession for gold mining,
embracing 3,000 versts of shore line,
for a period of 15 years. An exploration party, composed of American
engineers, skilled miners and Chinamen was organized at San Francisco,
and last year it proceeded to Cape
Nome and from there to the Chukchee
peninsula, whenoe the Russian contingent was brought by the Russian mail
steamer Yakoat. The Russians numbered 30 men besides 30 Cossacks, the
representative of the company being
Mr. Bogdanovich. The leader of
the Americans was Captain .Iansen of
the little steamer Samoa which conveyed the American party to the supposed gold fields and wbich was used
by the entire party as headquarters in
the coast work, no permanent settlement being made. Soon after the
party landed dissensions broke out
between the Americans and Kufsians.
Mr.Bogdanovic accused the Americana
of turning the affair into a farce for
stock jobbing purposes and of hindering the Chinese laborers from working. One day when the party wax
steaming along the coast, Capt. Jan-
sen headed the Samoa out to sea and
betore the Russians fully realized
what he was about he was half way
to Cape Nome,
There he told the authorities he waB
afraid the Russians would seize the
vessel. They are said to have found
the story untrue und to have ordered
Capt. Jansen to take the Russians
back to the nearest port. He refused
to do so and an American naval officer
took possession of the Samoa and
carried the Russians to l'etropolovski.
The American party returned to San
Francisco direct from Cape Nome.

Mayor   Frank   Fletcher has   issued
an   address  to   the electors and it Is
one which meets witb the  commendation of every fair-minded  man  in the
community.     In a modest manner   be
points   to   his   record durng the   past
year an expresses the   assurance   that
his candidature will bo favorably   received.    In reviewing  the policy pursued   while   in   office he  states  tbat
the      unexpected       condition       of
affairs, which be found when he   took
office, made it necessary to follow  an
economical oourse   and   at   the  same
time to carry on the  necessary   public
improvements and publio   works  and
to keep up the   other   departments  of
ths   city.     No oue   who has watched
ft>e manner in which the affairs of the
city have been   conducted during   the
year   1901 will be able to successfully
deny that they have   been managed in
a   careful,    bnsinesslike   an 1   at   the
sane   time economical and able manner.     Mr. Fletcher says the same care
will be taken during the preseut year,
if be is elected,   to make tbe expenditures of the  municipality   no   gieater
than its revenue.     Tbis  policy  will
meet with tbe lull   approbation of the
ratepayers as during the present year,
the   same as   last  year,   considerable
public improvements should be  made
with the minimum of^expenditore.
On the question of municipal ownership of public utilities there is no
uncertain ting to what Mayor J?let*
cber says and he asseverates that his
belief in the wisdom of this doctrine
has never changed. He further Bays
that the oourse in making a temponry
arrangement to provide the public
with necessary light until Ihe city is
in a position to increase its own
plant, never, for cne moment, jeopardized the city's right, or conferred
piiviliges on any outside corporation.
This is the truth regarding a transaction out of which the opponents ol
Mr. Fletcher and the aldermanic can.
didates who are supporting him have
strongly endcaovrcd to coin into political capital, bnt as it is counterfeit currency the ratepayers will have none
of it. Then, tuo, as the mayor says,
the arrangement wbich was finally
made of purchasing supplemental
power from the Tramway company
assists it In continuing its operations
aud, at the same time is a financial
benefit to the ratepayers, as the city
makes a large profit on all power purchased and sold to consumers of eleotrio light. Had the wishes of the
opponerts of leasing the power from
the Tramway company been carried
out the cars of the company
would have been compelled to cease
operation to the great injury of a
large number of residents of Nelson
who have houses adjacent to the line.
In addition to this it would have beeu
a harm to the prestige ol Nelson to
have the Tramway cease operations bb
rival cities would use the incident to
decry the town. The arrangement
finally made with the Tramway company, we think, is one that reflects
credit on both Mayor Fletcher and
the councilmen who supported it.
Although a strong effort was made
to secure the lead reflnery for the eity
by Mayor Fletcher and his colleagues
io 'he council those baring tbe
matter in hand have decided to put up
an experimental plant at Trail.
Notwithstanding this fact Mr. Fletcher pledges himself, lf.electcd, to
endeavor to keep in touch with the
parties proposing to erect a reflnery,
and perchance a refinery and smelter
in connection therewith, will bs
erected In this city and he believes
he may be Anally successful.. He is
slso in favor of se-nrmg laige rail-
wav workshops fcr the city, which
will give employment to a big force
of men at good "ages.
Another important matter which
Mr. Fletcher favors is the cultivation
of a spirit of harmony among all
classes and he promises to assist in
everything thst will perpetuate such a
condition, This is a policy which
should be strongly promoted, as a
deposition has been shown by certain
parties to nrrav class against class.
A house divided against itself is sure
to fall and if Nelson is constantly
torn by internal dissensions it cannot
hope to be the great city wbich is
splendid geographical position and
tbe wealth of resources with whioh it
is surrounded naturally entitle it to
In conolusion be shows that he is
a friend of the workingman aa he
pledges himself to favor the present
rate of wages.
Altogether it is a atrong platform
and one on which a large majority of
the electors of the city can stand, as
it favors an economical administration of municipal affairs, the protection of publio utilities, the securing
for Nelson of a lead refloery, a amel*
ter and railway shops, tbe maintenance of preseut wages,harmony among
the residents of Nelson, and the upbuilding of the oity. With Mayor Fletcher
and his supporting aldermanic candidates standing un so good a platform
tnereshould be no doubt about their
s election by a large majority.
Mr. Kirkatrlck's platform ia evidently abjut as follows: "I pledge
myself, if elected, to do exactly as
the Tribune tells me to."
The supporters of John A. Klrk-
pattick are resorting to doubtful devices in order to bolster np a weak
cause. Tbey are endeavoring to create
distrust among Mr. Fletcher s supporters and hope by dividing to conquer. One of Mr. Kirkpatrick's sup*
P'-neis yesterday approached Captain
Paterson, candidate tor re-election as
alderman, and asked him if he knew
tnatMayor Fletoher was sacrificing him
in order to secure his own election.
Captain Paterson, wbo knew.that the
charge was not true replied that he
did not believo the statement made as
be knew to a certainty that Mayor
Fletcher is working as energetically
for the election of tbe candidates for
aldermen wbo are supporting him as
be is for himself. The Kirkpatrick
man then said that he thought he was
not doing wrong in warning Captain
The charge made is too Billy to be
considerd, for Mayor Fletcher would
scarcely desire to be elected unless he
could have aldermen in sympathy
with bis very excellent policy to aid
him in carrying it out. All his supporting aldermen must, therefore, be
elected, notwithstanding the peculiar
tactics which have been adopted by
the friends of the Kirkpatrick candidates.

The supporters of John A. Kirkpatrick seem to be unwilling to back
their faith in his election with coin of
the realm. One of the stiongest sup-
porers of Mr. Kirpkattrick offered to
bet $200 that he would be elected. A
friend of Mr. Fletcher, who was present, offered to take bim up, but when
pressed the Kirkpatri<k man refused
to bet unless the Fletoher backer
would give such odds as a majority
of three-quarters in favor of Mr.
Fletcher. This shows tbat the hope of
electing Mr. Kirkpatrick is nut very
strong among his closest friends.
A Bauer street business man yesterday remarked, when commenting on
a letter published in yesterday's
Miner regarding tho employment of a
Chinese by the editor of the Tribune
to cut his household wood, that he
supposed he would try to blame some
one else for it, as be did when thc
articles appeared in the Tribune last
summer during the strike of the trackmen on the C. P. R. The articles
were said by the editor to have been
in the paper through the fault of the
night editor who wickedly took advantage of hia absence and Inserted
them. Cf course, be knew nothing
about them until his attention was

Asthmalene Brings Instant Relief and Permanent Cure in all Cases.
Therejb] nothing like Asthmalene.   It
brings instant relief, even in t~_ worst
It cures when all else fails.
The Rev. 0. P. WELLS, o Villa Ridge,
111., says: "Your trial bottle of Asthmalene received in good oondition. I cannot
tell you how thankfnl I feel for the good
derived from it. I wns a slave, chained
with putrid sore throat and asthma for ten
years. I despaired of ever being cured. I
saw your advertisement for tbe cure of
this dreadful and tormenting disease, Asthma, and thought you bad over-spoken
yourselves, bnt resolved to give it a trial.
To my astonishment the trial acted like a
charm.    S��nd me a full size bottle.

Gentlemen : I write this testimonial from a sense of duty, having tested the
wonderful effect of your Affthmalene, for the cure of Asthma. My wife has
been afflcted with spasmodic asthma for th<�� past 12 years. Having exhausted
my own skill as well ae many others, 1 chanced to see your sign upon yonr
windows on 130 th street, New York, I at onoe obtained a bottle of ABtbmalena.
My wife oommenced taking it about the first of November. I very soon noticed
a radical improvement. After using one bottle ber1 Asthma has disappeared
and she is entirely free from all symptoms. I feel that I* can consistently recommend the medicine to all who are afflioted with this distressing disease.

Chicago   to   Have   Greatest   Athletes
Event in History,
Chicago, III, Jan. IV,���-Information has been received from abroad
that an inquiry has been made regarding the possibility of including in the
exposition of sporting equipment and
apparatus, an exhibiton of hounds
and hunting horses and there is reason to believe that the management
will be able to make this an attractive feature of the games. A stadium
which will seat 75,000 people and
whieh in point of side, elegance and
excellence of arrangement will probably exceed any other building ever
erected for a similar purpose, is outlined in a set of preliminary plans
just placed in the hands of Mr. Harry
J. Furber, Jr., president of the
Olympian games association.
The structure, it is asserted, will
house the Olvmpia games to be held
in Chicago in 1UU4. The building will
cover approximately 11 acres the area
alone being 800 feet long and 130 feet
wide. The stadium at Athens where
the Olympian games were held in 1800
was but 070 feet long and 100 feet
wide. The stadium at Athens seated
between 45,000 and 50,000 persons.
The plana for the Chicago stadium
provided for more than 75,000 seats in
case they may be neessary on the dnys
when thero will be special attractions
���at the-games.
The games of 1904, it is predicted
will be greater than any every held
befoie at any period in history.
Athletics have advanced with the arts
and sciences and where the ancient
Greeks had but u few tests of strength
and endurance, there nre now scores.
The ancient sports will be reproduced
in Chicago but the modern games of
all nations will doubtless attract
greater attention. There will be the
old Greek foot races and wrestling
and the Egpytian chariot racing, but
also modem fencing, boxing, wild
cowboy racing, everything in fact
except mediaeval jousting. The ath-
letio end of the games will be under
the direction of William Hale Thompson and A. Q, Spalding. The former's
duties will be to round up every sport
in the globe and Mr. Spalding is to
select trie contests which are to make
up the programme for the month.

of the claims of American sealers
growing out of the seizure of vessels

about half a million dollars. The

Number ol Names Added to Voters'
List by Judge Forin.
Before Judge Forin yesterday morning those who claimed to have been
unjustly left off the voters' list were
heard. The following appications
were granted, Charles J Wilson, T H

Vaug'uan, A Macdonald and Co., W J
Murphy, T C Luscombe, W Irvine, J

Booth, K A Renwick, John Kirkpatrick and A E Gardner. In regard to
the ease ot Mr. Kirkpatriok, City
Clerk Strachan, who presented the
eluims to the judge, showod him Mr.
Kirkpatrick's affidavit thai he had no
interest in the lot in question and the
application was granted on the
strength of the affidavit, no objection
being entered. Among those refused
the principal trouble was on account
of the non-payment of the road tax.
In connection with this bis honor inquired of the city clerk why his own
name did not appear on the voters'
list, ana wus informed that it was
because he had not the necessary tax
receipts. Ho laughingly remarked
that he thought a judge was eiompt
from the road tax, but if he was not
then he was in the same box with the
other disqualified applicants.

Forin stated that any morning in
chambers up to the day of the election
be would hear any further applicants
wbu believed that their names should
be on the list.
