At the meeting of the city council
last evening besides tho members of
tbe counoll and city clerk, the city
engineer, city solicitor, L. A. Campbell, managor of the Kootenay Powtr
& Light company, the chief of polico
and   seveial    other    visitors    were
Alter the leading of the minutes of
tbe last meetiug the mayor stated
that the whiirf was now about completed, and the question of the finishing "1 the end of it should bo dealt
witb. The piles were there and they
bad received a reasonable offer from
Mr. Toye, the contractor, who had
the present wurk in hand and he
thought it should be settled. On
motion of Aid. Selous, seconded by
Aid. Mnililen, it was deoided that the
nork should be gone, on with. The
mayor said that the Nelson Sawmills
bad conneclcd with the wharf and
that In the widening of the wharf it
was necessary that the bent should be
raised. A little discussion followed
as to whether if a drawbridge were
pnt in by the sawmill people it would
not be possible for barges at high
water to use the space between the
sawmill lot and the wharf, which
place at presen t was entirely nseless.
It was finally decided that the sawmill company should be notified to
ralie the beut so that the wharf could
be widened.
The mayor then said that the next
Business betore tho council was the
1 consideration of the electrto light bylaw. At this point Alderman Hamilton arose and asked if he could be
moused as he was feeing very ill, and
suffeiing from chills. lie went in to
the city engineer's office where he
remained for some time listening but
finally felt so ill that he had to retire.
Mayor Fletoher stated that in relation to the by-law, at the last meet-
log it had been deoided that clause 4
should be left to be considered by
himself and Mr. Campbell. He had
talked over the matter with Mr.
Campbell that afternoon and that Mr.
Campbell absolutely refused to ao-
cept the agreement as it at present
stood. He himself was afraid that
there was little hope of arriving at a
satisfactory arrangement to bring
the bj-laW before the public. It
would be better for the counoil to go
Into committee of the whole and
consider the paesent draft of the bylaw, which was praotioally the original proposition for purchasing the
power outright.
This was done, and on motion of
Aid. Gillette, seconded by Aid. Pater-
�����n, Aid. Selous took the chair.
After the by-law had beon read
clause by olause, tho mayor said that
���t would be necessary to consider it
��Bd the only thing was to select
another night to meet and discuss it,
hut befoie this was done it would be
well to hear the views of the superintendent of the West Kootenay Power
oompany, Mr. Campbell, who was
Mr. Campbell said tbat the counoil

Mr. Campbell���I am getting tired
of this business. We are 6et up by
the liewspapeis as a lot of robbers,
who were dead set on Nelson, i
might mention for the information of
tbe aldermen that during tbe first two
years of the company's existence it
lias spent (04,000 iu tbis city, and that
from August 31st, 1899, to August
31at, 1900, they had left over $28,000
here. We are now giving a straight
business proposition, and we have
given you rook bottom prices. If we
cannot sell our power here we will
sell it elsewhere.
Aid. Selous asked if the city oouncil
could have 30 days to decide on the
matter. Mr. Campbell said tbat he
could not give that long. There
seemed to be an impression, judging
from the statements of one of tbe
newspapers tbat they were trying to
get a einch en the city,and tbat statements were flying around that they
ware beggars trying to sell out. Outside of tbe power plant the company
has $350,000 invested in coal lands
alone in tbe province. I might say
that I am getting 845 per horse power
for 12,000 horsepower, and yet we aro
offering yoa 300 horsepower at (be
same rate. For li>0 hoisepower I
could not give it to you at less than
(50 per   horsepower.
Aid. Selous asked a number of questions of Mr. Campbell to find what
was the lowest amount of power that
the company would supply and also
the lowest price, but Mr. Campbell
refused to oonsider anything under
150 at 850 per hoise power. He said
that to get the line in shape where
connections would have to be made,
branch lines, trausfoimeis.etc, would
cost the company at least 88,000 and
be thought the oouncil could hardly
expect them to Invest that amount for
a smallei amount of business. They
could not sell from month to month,
but only on a yearly basis. Mayor
Fletcher then moved that the committee rise and repoit progress which
was  done.
Iu council Aldetrman Irving asked
if the company could not supply
enough power over the tramway
Mr. Cambpell said that they could
if necssary sjpply 800 horsepower
over those wires but the light would
not be steady, as it would fluctuate
witb the cais running up hill.
The mayor asked if the company
could not let them have 100 horsee
Mr. Campbli���When I figured out
tbe lates I made a proposition to the
tramway company that if I was successful in disposing of power to tho
city I would take over the sub-station
and operate it, but unless I could sell
at least 150 horse power to the city I
could not do it. It would mean a con
sideralile reduction in the cost of
power to the tramway, and unless the
tramway people get the reduction
they intend to suspend operations
Alderman Selous -If at any time
during the year we took 203 horse -
power would we have to continue that
M. Campbell stated that he would
give them a maximum and a minimum rate. He could not afford to
give them 100 for ten months of the
year and 250 or 300 for two months
as that would mean the power company's carrylrg tbat extra 200 horsepower on tbeir lines all the year only
getting paid for two month of the
year but having to keep it at the
city's disposal the le'Bt of the year
just the same. "The city is soiling
electric light to its customers. Now
if a man oame to you and said, I want
1,000 lights for two monthB eaeh
year, at the regular rates, you would
tell him that you could not afford to
supply bim. Well, I am in. the same
position. It would not pa; to keep
alll that power lying Idle."
Aid. Selous said he did not like the
idea of the city paying 860 per horse
power,he liked tbe percentage scheme
better as it was  cheaper.
A question was asked as to whether
the gas oompany had made any
Mayor Fletoher said tbat they
had some time ago, but the offer was
altogether impossible and would be
far more expensive than the (50 horse

present being used by the oity aa to
whether he would be willing to continue it after the arrival of the city's

Auburn, Oot. 28.���By 7.15 o'clock
tomorrow Leon F. Czolgosz -mII have
paid the tribute with his life to tho
law, as tbo murderer of President
William McKinley and unless he undergoes great chauge of heait and
strength in the few hcurs of life left
to him he will go to the electric chair
to be killed unconcerned and unrepentant.
Czolgosz held his last two interviews tonight, the first with Supt.
ColliiiB and the second with his
brother and brother-in-law. Iloth of
the interviews were brief and when
the question of religion was mentioned Czolgosz broke from his seeming
lethargy and violently ilenoonced the
church and the clergy, Ue'oie tbe
late evening interviews the prisoner
reluctantly leoeived ihe priests, after
he had once refused to meet them.
The priests asked to be allowed to go
to him despite his refusal. The priests
remained witb Czolgosz for three-
quarters of an hour and earnestly
pleaded with the prisoner to repent
and pray for divine forgiveness. He
rejected all their advances, however,
and they regretfully withdrew. Thev
told the prisoner they would hold
themselves ready to answer a call
from him at any hoar of the night.
At 8 o'cluck the brother , and
brother-in-law saw bim. There was
no demonstration when they met.
Czolgosz merely stepped to the front
of his steel cage and said: "He'lo."
The brother ventured the remark :
"I wish yon would tell us, Leon, who
got you into this scrape?" The
assassin answered in a slow, hesitat-
iug manner, "No one; nobody hud
anything to do with it but me."
"That is not h>w you were brought
up, " said the brolher,"and you ought
to tell us everything now.'
"I have not got anything to tell,"
he answered in a sullen mannei.
"Do you want to see the priests
again?" asked bis brother.
He answered with more vehemence
than he had previously shown. "No
damn them, don't send them licit-
again.    I don't want thom."
The brother-in-law interjected here,
"That's right Leon."
The brother looked rather disturbed
by the answer. Then stepping up
close to the bars, the condemned man
said, "And don't you have any piay-
Ing over me when I'm dead. I don't
want it. T don't want any of their
damned religion,"
There was a painful paure of a few
minutes ana then the brother-in-law
suggested tnat he and the brother be
present to witness the execution. Before Supt. Collins could reply Loon
Czolgosz said, "Yes, Mr. Superintendent let them see mo killed."
Supt. Collins told the trio In empbatie
t erms that no snch tliiiig would be
allowed and ordered them to fcay
good-bye. Czologsz walked to the
back of his cell, snt down on the edge
of his cot and did not answer the last

James Peat, of Petrolia, Ont.
expert in boring for petroleum
natural gas has been on a
through East Kootenay. He left the
main line of the Crow's Nest, railway
at Elko and from there travelled
across the Tobacco Plains and crossed
two divides to the upper part of the
Flat Head valley. This section of
countrv is part of the land granted
to the Crow's Nest Railway company
and the Crow's Nest Coal company.
The trip was made for the purpose of
ascertaining the exteut of the oil
springs and the charactei of the
product. He found the spiings strong
and the oil of exceptional quality, in
fact he knows of only one spring in
America producing better. The oil
has a speoiuc gravity of 44 whereas 45
is the giavity of pure oil. The aver
age of tbe petroleum produced in the
United States runs from 21 to 82,
Mr Peat was also commissioned to
explore for a feasible route for a rail
way to the springs and was successful
in finding one. It is probable tbat a
railway will be built and development
started on a large scale in the spring.
Mr. Peat has had experience in the oil
fields of the United States, Germany,
Russia and Canada. He left on Saturday fur his home in Petrolia

an important junction point on the
line of the Great Northern railway.
All traffic east and west over the
Great Northern passes through tho
alliioted town and it is (eared that tbe
infection may be spread by parties
coming through. Dr. Sinclair,
Dominion health officer, for this district, lias been advised of the condition of affairs and has learned from
a medical practicioner at Bonner's
Ferry that not less than 25 cases exist.
A quarantine officer is on duty at
Rykerts, the neaest Canadian pert of
entry, and the Dominion government
lias been urged to appoint a medical
man to assist in the work while the
epidemic continues. With these precautions it is bel'evcd that there is
not the slightest danger of the disease
extending into Canadian territory.

"The views of tbe 'large property
owner'ale even more amusing than
t ose of the Tribune. For instance,
be says: 'That the merits of the contract itslf is open to c itiuism. It la
based in 16-candle power lamps.
What about hundreds of houses where
8-candle power lamps are all that are
necessary? In halls, bathrooms, bedrooms, veraidahs and samli rooms
many use four caudle power lamps,
bnt the company says 16-candle power
oi none.' 'Tbe targe property owner'
should known better aod it is a pity
mat Mr. Houston witb bis great
knowledge of electric lights did not
enlighten bim, that one 10-candle
power may be composed of four fours
or two eights. The only difference to
the user, even if he be a ' large property owner,' is the initial cost of
lamps. In this case the power company uses the 10 candle power as a
unit of measurement and not as an
arbitrary method for lighting. This
is apparently a case of 'woolen stockings making a swollen head.'
"In couclusion, I wish to state that
hlackg.iardism is not argument, and
while I am willing io reply to anything in tbe way of argument that
may be put forward during this controversy,! decline to lake any notice of
that which is only won by of a past
master of Billingsgates or an expert
fishwife In the olden days common
scolds were punished by placing
them on a ducking school and It seems
a pity that tho law has been abrogated for there are one or two residents
of Nelson whom this sort of treatment
might cure of a disposition to scold at
all times and on every occasion, and
sometimes without the least   cause. "

Mayor Fletcher Replies to Certain
His Critics.
Mayor Frank Fletcher is speaking
further yesterday in relation to tbe
electric light question "aid:
"Iu today's issue of the Tribune
Mr, Houston tries to make it appear
that the aldermen were divided on the
question of bringing down a by-law
for electric light purposes. As a
matter of faot tbe light and power bylaw was introduced by Alderman
Hamilton. It waa then moved by
Alderman Selous and seeonded by
Alderman Gillette that the by-law be

battalion duties. There was a good
attendance and it is predicted that
after tho winter's work in practice
the boys will make a good showing.
The band will be under tbe direction
of J. B. Pollard. Practice will commence at once, Monday's oeing tho

The Miner is in receipt of the report
of tbe seend annual meeting of the
Canadian Forestry Association held
in Ottawa on March 27 of the present
year. The report is in the shape of a
finely illustrated booklet of 01 pages.
It contains much useful information
about forestry, tbeir protection, and
One o! the papers read was by Mr.
J. It. Anderson, deputy minister of
agriculture for the province, in
which be says tbat British Columbia
possesses within its limits laiger
unbroken ateas of primeval forest
than any other country in the world,
and is destined in the near future to
bo the principal source of supply of
timber and wood pulp. Hence the
question arises how best to conserve
tbe forest wealthb to tne best advantage and for tbe greatest good, f ben
follows a scientific and practical
description of the various useful trees
which grew in the province and their
extent and uses.
Without doubt, he says, the timber
of the greatest economic value in the
province, and of which there is the
greatest quantity, and most generally
dist-ibnted, Is the Douglas Br, sometimes called red fir and O'egon pine,
which is known under tbe botanical
name of Pseudotsuga Douglasii. Its
range may be said to extend over the
whole of the province, with the exception of Queen Charlotte Islands,
where it does not grow, and it accommodates itself tc all altitudes from
sea level to 6,000 feet, at great altitudes, however it only grows in
stunted form.
Mr. Anderson places tbe cedar as
probably the next wood in importance. It 1h generally known as the
red cedar, and is sometimes called
yellow cedar, but is not to be confounded with the yellow cypress.
This cedar is botanically known as
Thuya gigantea. The tree Is very
generally distributed on Vancouver
Island and tbe coast of the mainland
to the westward of tbe coast range.
Scarce <n tbe dry central pleateau it,
however, occurs in considerable
quatnities in the Selkirk and Gold
range mountains. As an ornamental
tree it has but few equals and is certainly the finest of tbe native trees.
Veiy little below cedar aa regards
its economic value ia tbe western
spruce, botanically known as Picea
sitchensis. As Dawson says this tiee
seems to be confined chiefly to tbe
iineuinto vicinity of tbe coast, where
it attains large size.
The yeliow cedar, or yellow
cypress, Mr. Anderson says, probably
ranks next in oconomic ���aloe. It is
known botanically under the name of
Thuya exoelia. This tree is not
nearly as plentiful as those previously
mentioned, its range being confined
to tbe coast ranges of the mainland
aud islands, generally at a considerable elevation in the southern portion
of the provinoe where it occurs in
great quantities. On Queen Charlotte
Island it is plentiful and reaches sea
The hemlock, known botanically as
Tsuga mertensiana, is, except the
bark, practically unused at tbe present time. Its range extends over the
whole of the coast line, where it
grows to enormous siro In dark
gloomy forests. The bark is extensively used in tanning, but the wood,
althongh good for inside work is
liable to decay when exposed to wet.
It is but fair to say that partly on
account of tbe abundance of the other
coniferous woods, and the prejudice
existing against it, it has never been
fairly teBted and it is quite possible
It may possess unexpected virtues.
-Then follow in the order of the
usefulness the WeBtern white fir or
balsam fir, the Western white pine,
Western yellow pine or null pine,
scrub pine, black pine, Western larch

Mr. Anderson says the chief element
Of destruction of the forests is fire
which be contends should be guarded
against both by the mill-owners and
the government. In conclusion Mr.
Anderson states tbat those members uf
(he   Cann.dlna   Forestry     Association
who have not visited the west "have
yet to see a forest In all its magnificence. No otber words seem to
to convey a proper idea of a virgin
forest of the west Piotnre to your
selves thousands of trees, Douglas firs
predominating, of prodigious size, so
close togetheie tbat it Is difficult and
often impossible, for an animal to go
oetween. limbless, except the tops,
through which the rays of the sun
scarcely penetrate, the griund carpeted with mosses and ferns, and the
hush of nature all around you, and
perhaps you can form some idea of
the forest in llritish Columbia."
In another column will be found an
interview taken from the Victoria
Times telling how Mr. A. A. C.
Lariviere, member for St. lloniface,
while exploring in tbe west, discovered Nelson in tbe interior, instead of
being, as he supposed, at the coast.
He whs surprised to find it a dandy
little town a thousand miles from the
coast. This member of the house
seems to have a vague, hairy idea of
distances for by the route via the
Arrow lakes and the. Canadian pacific
railway, the distance is only 520 miles
and be very nearly doubled the distance. Mi. Lariviere says he was
surprised at the general up-to-date
and OUEtliug appearance of Nelson,
but let bim come here in a couple of
years from now and he will find a
place witb still more life, still more
population and much larger size than
at present, for towns in the west grow
much faster than tbey do in the east.
Mr. Lariviere says he intends, when
he returns to the east, to advise the
other members of tbe house to travel and see the country as he has seen
it, tn order that they may be bettei
able to legislate for it. This is advice of the right sort and his colleagues will do well if they follow it.
Tbe Department of the Interior has
issued an excelent atlas ot Canada
giving distinct maps of each of the
provinces and numerous engravings
well adapted to show tbe growth of
Western Canada, particularly of Manitoba and the Northwest. The pictures
in themselves tell the story of what
settlers have done, while tbe letter
press goes into details of information
which intending setllers should know
befoie starling to make for themselves
new homes. As immigration literature, It is the most likely to be effective of any that hai been got out by
that department. It is presented witb
tbe compliments of Hon. Clifford Sif-
The recent strike at the headwaters
of Horsefly, says the Kootenay Mail,
directs attention to the fact that there
is a large area of country between the
Cariboo and Canoe river watersheds
which has never been explored, but
which may be rich in placer gold.
Certainly the rich gold deposits of
Cariboo, on one side, and the Big
Bend on the other, indicate tbe possibility of strikes being made in that
section which may rival those of the
old time days of Cariboo and tbe
To the nninitiated or nninformed,
says the Western Miner, the mention
of mining or mining stock is at once
associated with speculation or gambling, as formerly were the appellations horse dealers or jockeys at once
connected with everything that was
not legitimate. At the present time
the dealer in horse flesh is a recognizee! factor in the modern business
world, while the jockey is now classed in a profession that requires study,
application, good judgment and honesty. While the element of chance ib
not eliminated from mining, neither
is it eliminated from any act of venture in life, from birth to tbe grate.
"Nothing ventured, nothing gained, "
is a trite and true saying that applies from a child's first step to the
founding of the largest industrial undertaking. In mining, so great has
been the progress, so wonderful has
been the progress, that today there is
less left to chance 'hr.ii in any other
pursuit or industry under the sun, if
honestly conceived and intelligently
conducted. With scarcely an excep
ton, the leading business and financial men of the country are today interested in mining in various froms���
and successfully, ton.

Asthmalene Brings Instant Relief and Permanent Cure in all Cases.
There is nothing like ABthmnlene, It
brings instant relief, even in the worst
cases.   It cures when all else fails.
The Rev. O. F. WELLS, of Villa Kidge,
111 , says: "Your trial bottle of Asthmalene received in good condition. I cannot
tell you how thankful I feel for the good
derived from it. I wns a slave, chained
with putrid sore throat nnd nslhma for ten
years. I despaired of ever being cured. 1
saw your advertisement for the cure of
this dreadful and tormenting disease, Asthma, and thought you bad over-spoken
yourselves, but resolved to give it a trial.
To my astonishment the trial acted like a
charm.   Send me a full size bottle.

My wife commenced taking it about the first of November. I very soon noticed
a radical improvement. After using one bottle her Asthma has disappeared

such methods are necassary to a livelihood, is it hvnesty,is it a system that
Christian should be proud of? he
asked. Tbe church has to show that
its members are a peculiar people,
that it stands for truth and justice
and honesty. Tbe great deeds of the
world have boen dene by those who
labored not for the money their effort
would bring them but who measured
tbeir work by what they accomplished
for the good of humanity. Greed is
not necessary for our happiness or for
tbe progress of humanity hut it has
been the ever present cause of turmoil
and strife and bloodshed,
'Where are We At?" was the sub-
jcot of a lecture delivered by Bev E.
S. Rowe in tho opera house last evening before an enthusiastic audience.
It described how machinery bad
supplanted men, till there were more
men than there was employment for
and the machine from an economic
standpoint was taken more care of and
l egarded as of more consequence than
the man who operated it because they
oould be easily repltced. The combinations of capital in, in railways, in
trusts, aud tne various alliances of
oapital bavo changed the situation so
that small concerns have been
absoibed or driven out of business and
it is practically the case that the few
heads of these large concerns control
the bulk of the employment for between 70,000,000 and 80,000,000 people
and they are compelled to go to them
for employment. This had cut down
individual opportunity. On the other
hand, the people were becoming better educated and the workers understood aoinplicatetd economic questions
and the cause and effect ot what was
going on around them as well as the
capitalist and were endeavoring by
tbeir best efforts to get what they
thought they were entitled to, a just
snare of the prodaot of their toil.
This was one of the several answers
which he gave to "Where are we at?"
Mr. Howe counselled mote woik on
the part of overybody for the good of
humanity and less of simply bending
the energies to theoncobject of securing money. He believed that there
Bhould be less adjusting of wageB
under the law of supply and demand
idea and thought tbat a minimum
wage and a compulsory aribtration
law should be passed. In conclusion
he counseled his hearers to be careful
how they usod the ballot and to only
Bend the better class of men to the
legislature. It was a foroible and
logical addiess and was frequently
interrupted by burBts of applause, and
at its cnclusion a vote of thanks was
tendered the lecturer.

Rev. Elliut 8 Howe's sermon on
Sunday evening in the opera houee
was well attended and listened to
with considerable interest, in that
the subject, Christian Socialism, wbb
treated In a manner applicable to
everyday life and the relatonabip of
economic problems to Christian teaching wbb shown to he so close as to be
inseparable. The text was that portion of tbo fourth chapter of the Acts
of the ApoBtlos wherein Is related
the (set that the early Christians sold
this property and held the proceeds
In common.
It may be urged, he said, that the
*��rly Christians were a small community, that they were narrow, that
thuyHtem they adopted would not
"orlc out In the affairs of the world,
hut they were eharged with the very
ol��cult task of proclaiming to the
"orld that the man of no standing in
the community who had been pnt to
death u a common criminal wbb in
���ruth God in the flesh and fresh from
his teaching they had adopted that
"jstem. The defeats in the results
Were in the working out of the prince established an will be seen at
the very outset when Ananias wlsiied
to get the credit for being with the
Christians while he held baok some to
look out for himself.
A Christian must oonsidcr the effect
n( his business, and the effect of his
method of doing business. Property

Member of St. Iloniface   Will   Advise
the Canadian House to Tiavel.
The Victoria Times has the following: Mr. A. A. C. Lariviere member for St. Honiface, is going to talk
from experience and tell tbe representatives he knows whereof he speaks
when he tells them they do not know
very much about the country they are
making laws for. Mr. Lariviere was
in Montreal reoenlty, and said to a
Herald reporter;
"I had, "he said, "heard of Nelson. I knew it was in British Columbia. I also knew British Columbia
was on the Pacifio coast. Theiefore I
had a hazy idea that Nelson was on
theooast. Imagine my surprise to
get up in a dandy little town a thousand miles from the watet. Lots of
people, a bund giving a promenade
oonoert in the evening, and a general
up-to-date and hustling appearance
I was astonished, and this is only one
of the many things which surprised
me. I had heard debates on the
Crow's Nest Pass and a good many
more familiar things, but I must con-
fuss thBt until this summer they did
uot mean very much. I know that
most of tho other members do not
know any more about the country
than I did,and when I see them again
I am going to tell them to get out and
travel."      ^^^^^^^___
